The Mobile Application Saving Songwriters and Producers from Legal Headaches

The Song Society app uses advanced AI and machine learning to write copyrights and contracts, protecting artists from legal issues they may have not even been aware of, as well as connecting artists around the globe who are open for collaboration.

 

Cincinnati, OH – August 17, 2017 – Artificial intelligence is smarter than ever, allowing for more applications than possible just a few short years ago. Being applied to a myriad of industries, one entrepreneur is bringing AI to the music industry.

Farah Allen, founder and CEO of Song Society, is helping artists and songwriters create the necessary revenue documentation, contracts, and copyrights with Rosie, the “digital manager.”

“A lot of artists never take a break from their creative process to work on business aspects,” says Allen. “By automatically producing documentation, there is more time for artists to focus on their songwriting, recording, or production. We are exploring a future release of Rosie where you you can close songs, name contracts, and ask her questions about copyrights and publishing.”

Currently, the Song Society app is used in 32 countries worldwide, and expecting to expand into other markets, eventually partnering with performing arts organizations such as BMI, ASCAP, and SESAC to help as many artists as possible.

Offering impressive features including video conferencing, group text and chat, instant feedback, and more, Song Society easily connects artists around the globe who are open for collaboration. Networking features within the app allow users to search for other artists based on particular likes and dislikes, as to allow for a smooth and successful session.

Song Society is collaborating with the Zoozler Venture Network to raise funds to allow for potential growth. The Venture Network is comprised of experts in business development, operations, sales, and strategic planning.

“Our goal is to create a centralized database for record labels and other organizations,” says Allen. “Most organizations aren’t sharing data with one another, and with Song Society, all data is in the app, and any organization would have immediate access to copyrights and song information.”

Questions With Founders: Scott Boots, i-1-1

Ethan Smith sat down for a chat with Scott Boots, the co- founder and CEO of i-1-1, an app helping 911 be more effective, to learn a little more about what keeps the innovative entrepreneur motivated.

Can you give me a quick pitch of what i-1-1 is, Scott? Explain it as if I’ve never heard a single thing about it.

“i-1-1 is the ‘personal crisis app.’ It allows users to contact 911 in ten seconds, for any emergency you would normally need to call 911 for. If your life is at risk, be it a heart attack, car accident, mass violence, fire, or any other situation that calls for emergency response crews, i-1-1 provides rapid GPS location to the call-center operator. Using location-based services in the app delivers a more accurate location than a standard call, and helps save more lives.”

How is the app more accurate than a phone call? Do operators not already have my location?

“80% of the calls to 911 use triangulation – bouncing signals from different cell towers to get a rough estimate of where you are. Triangulation isn’t very accurate – that’s why you’re always asked to provide your exact location when you call 911.”

Can’t you text 911 now? Surely they can track you pretty easily with that…

“Actually, only about 10%-14% of 911 call-centers accept texts. It’s been imposed that all call centers have to accept texts by the year 2021, but only about 20% of texts have any use of location services. You would think that in 2017, we would have something better or more accurate than the same system we’ve been using since 1971. There are a lot of barriers that stand between callers and operators, but determining location should not be one of them. Every 53 minutes, someone dies because 911 can’t find them. If we can implement the technology that already exists, we could help save actual lives. ”

That’s around 10,000 lives every year. Is reducing that number what keeps you motivated?   

“What keeps me going is that I know i-1-1 will improve emergency response. If a bomb threat is called into a school, that school immediately goes on lockdown and the teachers scramble to keep their students safe. Most of the time, the teachers and students have no clue what’s going on, sometimes for hours, and hide until rescue comes to tell them it’s safe. i-1-1 can provide real-time information and break down communication barriers to keep emergency crews and users within a 3-mile radius safe and informed.”

Since you have such a passionate project, is there any advice you could give to an aspiring entrepreneur?

“I would tell future entrepreneurs that you have to be ready to make sacrifices and give a large piece of yourself in order to complete your project. Your journey will add stress to your relationships, money, time, and your sanity. Sometimes it feels like a rollercoaster between genius and insane, and while there were many moments I was ready to give up, I knew I had to persevere to get the job done.

I would also say that having the right team can take you a long way – or that ‘different ingredients make the soup better.’ You won’t be able to do it alone, so finding the right collaborators to help you get where you need to be is huge. Without a team to support you and add new perspectives, you’re prone to making errors, and that will make progress take infinitely longer.”

New Tool Helps Consumers Navigate the World of Health Insurance Plans

The one-of-a-kind website provides consumers an easy way to compare all available health insurance plans in their state and choose a plan that works for them.

Cincinnati, OH – July 17, 2017 – PlanTruth, started by Dr. Valdimir Fridman, MD, is the first, and only, healthcare insurance ratings and review website. The innovative site aims to be the leading user-driven forum where consumers can come together to share their experiences with their health insurance provider, as well as provide data on the major plans in each state.

Immediately following his fellowship, Fridman, a New York cardiologist began noticing that a large majority of his patients were almost clueless about which insurance plan they needed most, or what their plan actually covered. After practicing medicine for over a decade, and being asked hundreds of times per year about the best insurance plans, Vlad decided that something needed to be changed.

“The problem with healthcare is that most people don’t have a grasp on exactly which plan works best for them,” says Fridman. “Insurance is something that most people have to figure out themselves, and it’s difficult when there isn’t an abundance of information out there to rely on.”

Often asking their doctors for an opinion on which plan to pick, the average consumer needs more answers than what a doctor is generally able to provide. Plan Truth provides more useful information than what a physician or doctor may recommend, and goes further than other ratings sites by providing actual customer ratings and reviews instead of using quality assessment guidelines to rank the providers.

“Everyone needs health insurance, but every person requires a plan tailored just for them. Plan Truth helps lay out different options so consumers can see what works best for them as an individual,” explains Fridman. “The point of Plan Truth is that we are a third-party, unbiased review site where people can share their own experiences, not a place to favor one provider over another.”

You can expect the updated Plan Truth site to launch mid-Q4 of 2017.
