PATENT FOR SALE

Portable Lawn Bag Holder

A device which attaches a lawn/garbage bag by spring loaded lever. It allows user to walk and "rake" or "broom" debris into the opening of the bag until it is full. Then the user can release the bag on the spot and tie it up, attach another one and move on to the next pile. Tests prove it is a faster bagging method than traditional rake, scoop and toss into a garbage can, which is clumsy & takes 3 tools.

Anxiety over Artificial Intelligence

By Joseph Byrum

Like any tool, AI can be dangerous when misused. It’s the unknown that’s scariest of all, and fear is the biggest threat to technological advances. Expanding knowledge – eliminating the unknown – is the best way to alleviate anxiety and reduce the natural impulse of politicians to ban what they don’t understand. If we wait until the point where we need to plead the case for AI and O.R. to lawmakers, the battle will already have been lost.
