It seems like barely a week goes by without a headline warning about the risk of unbridled development of artificial intelligence, also known as machine learning.

At On-Demand Education Marketplace, we believe mankind must strike a balance between exploiting the benefits of AI and avoiding the most-negative consequences of aggressive development of thinking machines.

Elon Musk and others (including the late Stephen Hawking) have spoken out about the dangers of rapidly advancing AI research as we move toward singularity — the point where machines overtake us on the intelligence scale.

ODEM Publishes Innovative Airdropper Contract for Token Bounty Distribution

Chiasso, Switzerland – April 11, 2018 – ODEM, creator of the world’s first On-Demand Education Marketplace, said it published a new type of airdropper contract for the distribution of more than one million bounty tokens.

ODEM’s development of the new airdropper solution saves time and money while also allowing token recipients to confirm their tokens’ pre-published origin addresses. The contract allows for the bulk distribution of ODEM Tokens to participants in the company’s bounty and rewards programs. The ODEM airdropper contract reduces the number of Ethereum transactions and fees associated with sending the tokens to users.

The airdropper contract, available for view now at GitHub, contains a self-destruct function that reduces its load on the Ethereum network and limits the transaction vulnerability. ODEM is excited to share the open-source solution with the developer community.

“We’ve broken new ground by working around the previously laborious-and- expensive task of distributing cryptocurrency bounty rewards,” says Richard Maaghul, ODEM’s chief executive officer. “We really hope other crypto companies will get a lot of value from our breakthrough.”

The Best Reasons to Participate in the ODEM Crowdsale

As CEO of On-Demand Education Marketplace, I get a charge out of helping people understand what sets ODEM apart from the hundreds, maybe thousands, of blockchain and digital currency projects from which investors can choose.

A hint: It’s not my rugged good looks.

The biggest differentiator for ODEM, in contrast to other crowdsales, is Excelorators Inc., our Cambridge, Massachusetts-based partner. It’s a fact. While we remain committed to the cause of deploying blockchain technology to improve student access to higher quality education, we wouldn’t be here without Excelorators. Read more

Why Learning Together Matters

Why Learning Together Matters

I’m a huge fan of in-person, live college lectures. When I studied Business at Youngstown State University in Ohio back in the 1980s, I loved attending lectures. They were all about learning and big ideas. Class sizes were moderate. And I appreciated being able to interact with my fellow students and get to know my professors.

Thanks to the growing popularity of online classes, many of today’s students are missing out on the benefits of in-person lectures. That’s a tragedy.

It’s also why I’m so passionate about promoting live lectures and other in-person learning experiences. As the chief executive officer of On-Demand Education Marketplace, or ODEM, I’m committed to building a blockchain-based platform that empowers students to put live lectures from top universities at the core of their ongoing education.
