Chain of Thought
Using blockchain based technology, a recent innovation in de-centralized database design popularized by Bitcoin, we have designed Chain of Thought, a software infrastructure that quietly and reliably stores a time-stamped proof-of-creation for notes and emails to the blockchain. Chain of Thought allows users to quickly and easily prove the creation and authorship of a note, email, or file. This security provides the peace of mind for researchers to more openly share their ideas and to retrieve past records required to validate patent claims or otherwise protect their intellectual property.

In most developing countries, not only is the quality of healthcare substandard to that of more developed nations, but the dissemination of medical information is also limited due to poor internet connectivity. In these same countries, most citizens own ordinary feature phones and rely heavily on SMS text messaging for communication. MedicSMS is a fully automated system based on state-of-the-art machine learning that empowers those in developing countries with the ability to obtain medical advice and a preliminary diagnosis via SMS. Users simply text their symptoms to MedicSMS and receive a preliminary diagnosis and a doctor recommended course of action.
