The students at High Desert Montessori School were excited when they were gifted a brand new modular greenhouse by Modular Greenhouses in collaboration with the Great Full Gardens Café. It would help children know more about growing a variety of foods and be intricately involved in the food growing process. The children would learn to respect the food and would be more deeply involved in the overall health and wellness.
The school also received funds to purchase a variety of ancillary items used in the modular greenhouse, including seeds, soil, and planters. The Boys and Girls Club of Reno, Nevada, has also received a greenhouse from the Modular Greenhouse, which is a local and highly popular startup. One of the more ambitious aims of Modular Greenhouse is to make sure that all the local Washoe County schools in the region of Nevada have a modular greenhouse by 2020.
The CEO of Modular Greenhouse, Josh Smith, from Reno, Nevada, said that the company has an integrated program that is working towards facilitating a greenhouse to every local school in the Washoe County. The students believe that it would help the environment as well help to educate them and the youth of the region about food, plantation, and the tree growing process, which is the essential part of the overall student development. One of the sponsors, Great Full Gardens Café, said they hope that soon a day would come when they would be able to serve the food grown by students in their restaurants.
Josh Smith, from Reno, Nevada, has started many companies in the field of sustainable technologies and wellness industry. Smith is a visionary, and it is his vision that has helped his firm Modular Greenhouse grow in such a short span.
The idea of creating a company in this niche came when he wanted a greenhouse for his residence, but was able to have one only after a lot of struggle and hassles. It is when Josh Smith decided that having a company that offers products and services that would cut through all the local and legal barriers on the consumers’ behalf would impact the environment as well as ensure the growth of local organic produce by a significant margin.
The e-commerce space gets more competitive as more and more customers take their shopping online. Eventually, even the online retailers themselves feel pressured to provide the best shopping experiences for their clients or risk running out of business. In these times, in order to win and retain clients, companies have to go for Personalized Merchandising, which is simply providing a product for a particular audience, at the right time, and the right price. Most of the online retailers also now depend on Artificial Intelligence or AI, to create the best shopping experiences for their clients.
The use of AI technology in online stores makes it easier for potential shoppers to get what they want without much hassle. Retailers need to learn a lot about their customers before they can suggest the best products. As humans can be rather slow at times, AI technology helps them to deduce all the collected information, before it displays the best products to recommend. It does so by silently monitoring customer behaviors. For example, if a client regularly reads reviews, the AI system can arrange items, beginning with the highest rated one.
Consequently, the AI platform can also keep tabs on past purchases, and suggest additional products to match the initial purchase or show a similar product in case what is desired is not available at the moment. A perfect example of AI at work would be getting a recommendation for a shoe after buying a particular apparel. Essentially, a lot of marketing time is saved, and the possibilities of making a sale are significantly increased.
AI’s integration in personalized merchandising has run deeper in the recent past. Even the retailers themselves can use it to recommend products from manufacturers. In addition to that, artificial intelligence also helps retailers stock their shops according to what most of their clients want. The retailers can also use them to establish customized marketing approaches through the use of things like pop-up messages and application notifications. Learn more about Sentient at Crunchbase.
The e-commerce field now more than ever needs updated and efficient artificial intelligence system. Many companies are therefore rushing to come up with systems that can understand client preferences even more efficiently.
It is already estimated that in the next ten years, 90% of online sales will be handled entirely by AI enabled computers. Algorithms have been the way forward for various retailers to make sales, but advances in AI technology have been positively impacting personalized merchandising.

Health is exceedingly becoming expensive in the United States. In 2013, Americans spent an excess of $933 billion on health care. According to a research finding published in JAMA, most of these resources were mainly spent on aging and population increase. In the recent past, the country has spent hugely on various diseases. For instance, diabetes prevalence increased considerably across the country, costing a total of $64 billion. More than $44 billion of this money was however spent on pharmaceuticals.
Research conducted on diseases is equally a potential cause of the increase in healthcare costs. The annual expenses on inpatient rose to $697 billion compared to its earlier cost of $258 billion. Notably, the increase came even with shorter hospital stays among many patients.
According to Dieleman, the health sector is particularly committed to lowering healthcare spending. Even then, the healthcare efforts have now been frustrated by the rising cost of drugs and hospitalization. The healthcare sector is conducting extensive research to minimize disease expenditure.
Joseph Newhouse who serves as the director of Harvard Division of Health Policy Research and Education identifies that the health sector is experiencing a rise in spending and purchasing. Any effort to stop this trend can only stop further increase. For instance, breaking down costs will promptly decline further increase in healthcare costs and restore normalcy in the sector.
