Mindstrong Health has created a new neurological based AI platform be able to detect brain function through smartphone use. They just had their first round of funding and were able to raise $14 million in total, reveals patientdaily.com. The investors included Foresite Capital, ARCH Venture Partners, Optum Ventures and One Mind Brain Health Impact Fund. This progressive technology monitors the interaction patterns in smartphones and uses that to watch the cognitive brain activity that is used while the smartphone is being used. This means that Mindstrong has the ability to predict mood, mental cognition, and digital biomarkers just by looking at a smartphone. This makes any menial usage of a smartphone useful and is more accurate than a reading that would otherwise be taken in a clinical setting.
This technology will greatly benefit the people who suffer from mental disorders and also revolutionize the current way in which mental health is understood. As it stands, scientists have only a limited amount of knowledge on the subject because it is not as easy as detecting blood pressure or taking a blood cell count. Mental health professionals are forced to rely on a subjective way of diagnosis and this technology has the potential to change that. Mindstrong Health is confident that this platform will be able to provide more accurate diagnosis and a better understand of the brain in general. This will allow the healthcare community to provide better treatment to patients.
Jim Tananbaum, experienced investor and healthcare innovator, is the CEO and founder of Foresite Capital. Foresight is one of Mindstrong Health’s biggest investors and they are excited about this new cognitive technology. Jim attended Yale, Harvard Medical, Harvard Business, and MIT. Jim Tananbaum then went on to work his way into the healthcare, investing, and entrepreneurial industries. He has 25 years of experience in pushing progress forward and supporting various franchises.
Jim was recently awarded by Forbes magazine when he was recognized for his experience as an investor and was added to their Midas List of 2017. He is interested in forward progress in the business sector of the healthcare industry and believes that Mindstrong has the potential to help patients and save money.

Securus Technologies is becoming widely known as being a program that many people are capable of benefiting from, as they’re not only able to communicate via video chat sessions with one another, but also one which is very convenient for visitors of inmates, as they’re no longer required to travel to the premises of correctional facilities to engage in visitation sessions with inmates. Such a procedure of visitation could be a hassle for some, especially if the correctional facilities is located somewhere that is a bit of a distance from their own home, or if there are appointment scheduling conflicts in which there are no ways for them to have a visitation session conducted during a time that is convenient for them due to their preferred visitation appointment slots already being taken up by visitors of other inmates.
Securus Technologies is being given a tremendous amount of credit for making our communities safer due to it being a program that’s been specifically developed to enable law enforcement officials to monitor chat sessions that are conducted by its users. This allows them to potentially solve crimes. Although it may seem that solving crimes through a video chat program in which inmates speak with visitors is impossible, it’s important for everyone to be aware of the fact that many crimes are occurring in correctional facilities. By allowing law enforcement agencies to have abilities of observing the videoconferencing chat sessions that take place between the immediate users of the program, they’re capable of solving illegal matters that may be discussed between inmates and the visitors that they communicate with through the program.
Securus Technologies is a form of communication that needs to be seen as a tool that helps everyone. Unfortunately, it’s a communicative platform that has yet to be installed and utilized in the communications systems/departments of every correctional facility. You can browse through a list of correctional facilities that have had the program implemented into their communicative systems by visiting the website that’s been designed by its engineers. It’s a website that’s easy to navigate through and contains many valuable pieces of information pertaining to the program.
Success Academy Charter Schools is a network of privately operated schools in New York City. They have schools for elementary, middle school, and high school students. Despite having predominantly students who come from lower-income families, the educational results at Success Academy schools surpasses those of public school students, even those from affluent families.
The Success Academy schools have become so popular that in 2016 they had 17,000 students apply for only 3,017 available seats in their classrooms.
The founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Success Acadamy Charter Schools, Eva Moskowitz, has said that she dearly wants to help more students by providing more space for them. Unfortunately, the people at New York City Hall are not cooperating in allow more Success Academy locations to be opened. Many parents are stuck sending their children to a poorly performing public school rather than getting them into the Success Academy. Despite the headwinds, two more Success Academy schools are slated to being opened in 2017.
Like many public school systems around the nation, the public schools in New York City are failing at their mission to provide a good quality education to the students who attend them. Charter schools like Success Academy play a vital role in giving families a better option to achieve successful educational results.
Since its founding in the mid-2000’s, Success Academy now operates 41 schools across the city of New York and in every borough with the sole exception of Staten Island. Their schools have 14,000 children enrolled. 95% of the children at Success Academy schools are a minority and 77% come from a low-income family.
Eva Moskowitz and the other administrators of Success Academy hold their staff and students to a high level of educational achievement. Students are challenged in a variety of ways and are highly encouraged to be intellectually curious. The school’s have numerous chess clubs, math clubs, and other organizations that keep kids engaged and learning.
In May 2017, a team of 136 Success Academy students attended the United States Chess Federation’s Chess Supernationals VI. Some of the Success Academy teams proudly had great success against top national chess players.
