Bitcoin ATMs spook police

T

he Vancouver Police Department is warning the federal government that digital currency such as Bitcoin will be used by organized crime to launder money unless more checks and balances are implemented for those who operate Bitcoin automated teller machines (ATMs). Police in Metro Vancouver saw a 350 per cent increase from 2016 to 2017 in files related to digital currency. As of January, police were investigating 70 files, and they estimate that more than 800 cases could be generated by the end of year, resulting in a 300 per cent increase over 2017. “This alarming rise in cryptocurrency files is primarily due to the way Bitcoin has been adopted by fraudsters as the instrument of choice to transfer funds,” said a Vancouver police report in April. Police worry that organized criminals will take advantage of

the anonymity and unregulated digital currency system to launder money. The report noted there is no requirement to register customer details and no limit on the amount of funds that can be transferred from one person to another. The report makes reference to efforts to curtail money laundering in Metro Vancouver casinos and suggests “any forward-thinking criminals will be exploring cryptocurrency and ATMs as an easier and more profitable alternative.” The report suggests a criminal group could purchase a Bitcoin ATM – “an ideal money laundering vehicle”– for a few thousand dollars and “put all their cash through that one ATM, laundering the money as many times as required and either profit from or eliminate the transaction fee.” There are 63 Bitcoin ATMs in Metro Vancouver, according

to coinatmradar.com. Many are owned by small independent vendors. None are believed to follow any form of “know your customer” regulation, which requires

per cent of B.C. tech jobs are currently held by First Nations and Indigenous people or people with disabilities, HR Tech Group discovered. As well, just 27 per cent of tech workers are female. Also, according to the 2017 HR Tech Group Salary Survey, women working in B.C. tech earn five to six per cent less than their male counterparts. “Our hope is that this project will inspire the community to take action to close the gaps as the sector continues to grow,” says Allison Rutherford, executive director, HR Tech Group.

Wearable safety

A

foreman overseeing a large construction site can now monitor the safety of every worker using a new system developed in B.C. The safety data flows from LifeBooster wearables, a Vancouver company that is just rolling out the technology. The system will send a warning of a fall, for example, but its continuous monitoring shows where any worker is at high risk of back strain, carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive strain injuries and other musculoskeletal afflictions. The system can track an entire workforce to build a database for reference and produce reports and guidance to prevent injury. For instance, it can pinpoint workers who consistently lifts objects improperly, so the worker can be alerted and trained how to do it right. “Musculoskeletal injuries are the

largest injury type and their numbers haven’t been decreasing,” says LifeBooster co-inventor and CEO Bryan Statham. These types of workplace injuries cost companies in Canada approximately $2.4 billion a year. The most important factor, according to Statham, is the ability to capture information continuously to see cumulative risks throughout a day, which now takes a lot of time and money to obtain. “With new wearables, that can be done quickly and effectively.” Smart construction hard hats can also do more than protect a worker’s head. The Android-based smart helmet from Daqri, for instance, connects people, data and machines with its pull-down, readout smart visor. Optional headbands in the Daqri smart helmet can even check a user’s heart rate, skin temperature,

blood oxygen saturation and brain activity. The data is tracked in real time and is available via a central hub. This technology can provide early warning signs of potentially dangerous conditions and

locations, and can identify when users are too tired or unfocused to safely perform their tasks. The Daqri helmet technology is also being tested for motorcycle riders.

rtificial intelligence (AI), open source data, sensor technology, information modelling, and machine learning are big buzz words in the technology industry. From Google’s new automated personal assistant booking hair appointments on your behalf, to AI systems helping medical professionals better treat patients, advanced technologies are already shaping the world we live in. In fact, many of the world’s leading countries have made major AI strategy announcements and pledged significant new funding for AI research and developments, as well as its ethical considerations. But while many public bodies are just starting to explore the benefits of using advanced technology tools within their organizations, Technical Safety BC is actively integrating these processes into their day-to-day work. As a regulating body, Technical Safety BC oversees the operation and installation of safety systems and equipment across BC. Electrical systems in condo buildings, commercial propane storage tanks, and hot water boilers in schools are just a small list of equipment and systems under their purview. “As a regulator overseeing many industries throughout the province, there is a vast amount of territory and industries

00_BC Tech 2018_00_72 PAGES.indd 9

to cover. In the past, our work relied solely on in-person physical inspections of regulated work,” explains Ab van Poortvliet, Vice President, Data Analytics and Decision Science at Technical Safety BC. “But our safety officers can’t be everywhere at once, so we wanted to explore if there was a way to use technology to better assist our clients and safety officers, help predict hazards and use our people more efficiently.” Technical Safety BC is a public regulator in Canada who embraces artificial intelligence and data science by building its own proprietary in-house predictive algorithm and software that assists and supports its clients and safety officers in reducing the number of technical safety incidents. Several years ago, the organization developed an in-house computer algorithm known as the Resource Allocation Program (RAP). Using permit and inspection data gathered by its own safety officers and a simple model to prioritize work for safety officers, the program’s goal was to identify areas with the highest risks, so the organization can better allocate its resources. A dedicated data science team was then tasked with integrating advanced analytics into all parts of the business. The data science team engaged with Dataiku to

help quickly prototype, test, iterate, and deploy innovative, data-driven solutions to affect the way Technical Safety BC manages risks. Now the program is generating safety-related, predictive insights from historical records of safety inspection data in real-time. Built on the latest machine learning technologies, new models developed in this project adapt quickly to reflect any emerging risks and to help Technical Safety BC shift resources based on the most current knowledge. “We tested how machine learning could enhance our RAP approach, and found that it improved our predictions by 80%,” van Poortvliet explains. “Using machine learning makes better use of safety officers’ time so they can visit other sites, allowing them more time to be present in their community.” “Public safety is our mandate and this means continuously learning about the best ways to find safety issues and see them addressed. It’s combining the passion and insights of our employees with digital technology that makes us an effective regulator.”

he history of the tech sector in British Columbia is the story of incredible innovation and growth. It’s the story of emergence of a new economy-shifting sector. And it’s a story that has its roots in British Columbia’s past – the challenges we have faced, the solutions we created and the people who have made it happen. We are innovators by nature: a small population in a vast geography in British Columbia. Ideas were harnessed to erase the challenges of distance, of mountains, of the rugged nature around us. We survived – and thrived – by embracing new ideas and harnessing new technology. This is what drives our sector, and what drives the accomplishments and passions we celebrate at the BC Tech Association’s 25th-anniversary Technology Impact Awards. It’s been an incredible 25 years of doing good for people, for our province and for the world. We’ve seen made-in-B.C. innovation come to life, like the world’s first quantum computer developed by D-Wave Systems, the world-leading zero-energy solar-powered LED lighting from Carmanah Technologies and the high-definition images of our world’s surface from UrtheCast.

Technology has the power to transform our province, our country and our world for the better. It can make our existing industries and companies stronger. Our homegrown companies create entirely new technology products and services we sell to the world. But B.C.’s tech sector is driven by so much more than products and services. We’re driven by a mission to do good. From Terry Fox to Dr. Julio Montaner, B.C.’s innovators take on the biggest, most daunting challenges, powered by a determination to leave this province we call home better than we found it. And they’re not alone. B.C.-based companies are harnessing tech to do good, to protect and to enhance our environment, to make our traditional industries sustainable, to save lives through innovative health care.

Skeptics may see cryptocurrencies as a bubble, but the underlying technology is a game-changer ALBERT VAN SANTVOORT AND TYLER ORTON

PETER CHOWWHITE PROFESSOR, SIMON FRASER UNIVERSITY, AND DIRECTOR, GENA LAB

Going up 200 basis points in a day is huge for the stock market, but in cryptocurrencies that’s a Tuesday. Thinking that it’s a bubble is a profound misunderstanding of the space

he stock price of U.K.-based capital market company On-Line PLC shot up almost 400 per cent in October 2017 after the firm announced it would include the word “blockchain” in its name. Eastman Kodak Co. revived its fortunes on the stock market when it announced it was launching its own cryptocurrency. Share prices for the once-bankrupt film and camera company more than doubled to US$6.80 at the close of markets following the January 9 announcement of KodakCoin.

This followed a pattern similar to that of beverage maker Long Island Iced Tea Corp., which changed its name to Long Blockchain Corp. in December 2017. Shares rose nearly 300 per cent in one day of trading. S u c h m ove s s p u r re d E u rop e a n C e nt ra l B a n k vice-president Vítor Constâncio to refer to Bitcoin as “a sort of tulip.” Constâncio was referring to the famous tulip mania, a period in Dutch history when the flower’s popularity led to soaring, unsustainable prices and the collapse of the bulb market. Cryptocurrencies’ high rate of turnover and limited real-world use suggest that buyers are speculating and don’t intend to use cryptocurrencies for commercial transactions, states a UBS Bank report titled Cryptocurrencies: Beneath the Bubble, released last October.

Cryptocurrencies are almost certainly in a speculative bubble, says Roham Gharegozlou, co-founder of Axiom Zen, a Vancouver-based tech company that does work in the cryptocurrency space. Gharegozlou says that the market is already starting to correct itself, and that as the market matures and more companies enter it, it will be easier for retail investors to separate the legitimate from the illegitimate. However, not everyone is as skeptical about the sustainability of cryptocurrencies’ value. “It’s not tulips,” says Peter Chow-White, a Simon Fraser University professor and director of GeNA Lab, an organization that investigates the impact of information technologies. “Going up 200 basis points in a day is huge for the

Bitcoin’s big run Bitcoin, the world’s most costly cryptocurrency, has seen volatile price swings. Here is a record, as of mid-April 2018, of its amazing run.

may debate the value of Bitcoin, blockchain is widely considered to be a legitimate and innovative technology. Cryptocurrencies are only one application of blockchain. The traditional financial industry is already taking advantage of the new technology. According to the World Economic Forum, 90 per cent of banks will have adopted it by the end of this year. Financial firms could use blockchain to reduce transaction costs and improve the system for exchanging money between banks. Using blockchain technology to connect decentralized data hubs could help centralize health-care data, modernize power grids and improve telecommunications across global supply chains, according to the UBS report. Jason Del Vicario, portfolio manager at HollisWealth, is urging his clients to perform due diligence before embarking on investments in the new technology. He cautioned in a January 10 clients’ note that with at least 1,100 digital currencies out there, investors should put in only as much money as they’re willing to lose.

stock market, but in cryptocurrencies that’s a Tuesday. Thinking that it’s a bubble is a profound misunderstanding of the space,” Chow-White says. As BC Tech was preparing for press the price of Bitcoin had returned above US$9,000, having risen by more than a third in value over the previous two weeks (see chart). The world’s most valuable cryptocurrency now has a market cap of more than $150 billion, though this is still down considerably from its peak valuation of around $320 billion in late 2017. Blockchain serves as an electronic ledger that cannot be manipulated by a central authority. Buying and selling cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin is made secure through blockchain.

“My understanding is the blockchain technology itself is quite brilliant and is most likely to be here to stay,” Del Vicario says. But he cautions that many investors have a fear of missing out that is driving them to put their money into questionable or nascent cryptocurrencies as they witness prices soar on exchanges. “I can honestly say I have no fear of missing out … [of buying] blockchain,” he says, adding regulators will likely tighten up rules within the next five years that will make the value of cryptocurrencies drop. “My sense is that this is generation X’s bubble.” Del Vicario says the current cryptocurrency craze has parallels to the late-’90s tech boom, when companies would add “.com” to their names and see share prices soar. That bubble eventually burst. But Dave Feller, CEO of Vancouver-based financial technology company Mogo, sees cryptocurrencies not as “generation X’s bubble” but as the “Millennial version of digital gold.” In January, the online wealth management company added a cryptocurrency tool to its platform that allows users to buy and sell Bitcoin. “Essentially, nobody’s looking at it as a currency right now,” Feller says. Instead, he says, Mogo users, who veer younger, have expressed interest in using Bitcoin as an investment like any other stock. Chow-W hite says crytocurrency is more than a bubble. “I’d say it’s bubbling; it’s like a pot on a stove that’s just starting to bubble because it’s such early days in its adoption,” he says. É

he cryptocurrency revolution has introduced some interesting technology, notably the blockchain concept, which holds great potential for the agri-food sector. Blockchain is a way of storing and sharing information across a network of users in an open virtual space. The technology allows users to look at all transactions simultaneously and in real time. In the food industry, the potential is vast. For example, a retailer could easily discover who else his supplier has dealt with. And because transactions are not stored in a single location, market information is almost impossible to hack. On the consumer side, reading a simple QR code with a smartphone could trace a meat product right back to its source. Data such as an animal’s date of birth, use of antibiotics, vaccinations and where the livestock was harvested can easily be conveyed to the consumer. Blockchain makes a supply chain more transparent at an all-new level. It also empowers the entire chain to be more responsive to any food safety disasters. Massive organizations such as Nestlé and Unilever are considering blockchain technologies for that reason. Walmart, which sells 20 per cent of all food in the United States, has just completed blockchain pilot projects. Prior to using blockchain, Walmart conducted a trace-back test on mangoes in one of its stores. It took six days, 18 hours and 26 minutes to trace mangoes back to the originating farm. By using blockchain, Walmart can provide all the information the consumer wants in 2.2 seconds. During a food contamination outbreak, six days is an eternity. So blockchain technology can save lives. Blockchain also means specific products can be traced at any time, helping reduce food waste. Contaminated products can be traced easily and quickly, while safe foods can remain on the shelves and not go to landfills.

Food can be traced to the source in seconds, not days Blockchain will allow everyone to be paid more quickly, from farm to plate. Farmers could sell more quickly and be properly compensated, since market data would be readily available and validated. The technology could offer a legitimate option for farmers who now feel compelled to rely on marketing boards to sell their commodities. Blockchain could prevent price coercion and retroactive payments, which we have seen across the food supply chain. In essence, it could “Uberize” the agri-food sector by eliminating middlemen and lowering transaction fees. That should mean fairer pricing, and help smaller outfits get more market attention. SLEUTHING TOOL Q However, it will work only if the data at the source is accurate. Current industry practices are much more open to human error. Much of the compliance data is audited by third parties and stored on paper or in a centralized database. These databases are highly vulnerable to informational inaccuracies, hacking, high operating costs and intentional errors motivated by corruption and fraudulent behaviour. With blockchain, mistakes would be traceable to individual culprits. Given recent food fraud scandals, this feature is not trivial. The technology provides permanent records and data sharing between disparate actors in a food value chain. Many retailers have sold fraudulent food products unknowingly. Blockchain could put an end to that. B l o c k c h a i n t e c h n o l o g y o ffers a n a f ford able solut ion to small, medium-sized and large organizations. However, there are noteworthy limitations. The amount of information that can be processed is limited. And confidentiality depends on securing contracts between several organizations. Balancing confidentiality with transparency will be tricky,

since the agri-food arena is full of secrets. For many, then, blockchain is just a solution looking for a problem. Blockchain is really in its infancy and most people are uncertain about its potential. But the innovation in blockchain architectures, applications and business concepts is happening rapidly. It’s a decentralized, open-source organism that is challenging to grasp for many, including governments. In the food industry, innovation is always desirable until it becomes real. Once it manifests itself, guards go up. Some organizations move ahead while others wait to see what happens. The most important challenge for blockchain technology remains participation. All parties must adopt the technology in order for it to work. In food distribution, not all companies are equal – some have more power than others. A successful integration of the blockchain requires the engagement of all participating organizations. Walmart’s blockchain will likely be successful because it’s Walmart. But thousands of companies don’t have the same clout. Food industry leaders should embrace blockchain, incorporating it in digital strategies now being employed across the industry. That would enhance agri-food transparency, productivity, competitiveness and sustainability. But before we get too excited, research must create evidence-based blockchain solutions to democratize data for the entire system.

Food service companies tap technology to make restaurants and delivery run smoother and faster

he integration of technology into the food and beverage industry is taking the world by storm. Advancements such as smart, kitchens, text alerts for table reservations and GPS for home delivery have given customers and businesses new ways to connect with each other. Ian Tostenson, president and chief executive officer for the BC Restaurant & Food Services Association, says all the big restaurant players are now using Internet of Things technology.

“This is the ability for kitchens through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to monitor critical things like refrigeration systems. You used to have people manually checking refrigeration systems; now you can monitor those devices from your office or phone.” Tostenson says he’s been to a few restaurant trade shows in the U.S. and witnessed Chowbotics’ saladmaking robot, which could upend the chef industry. “It’s a robot capable of creating a thousand salad combinations using 21 different ingredients,” he explains. “So you have a robotic approach to a salad bar, and it can control portion size through weight sensors, and it also provides calorie content.” Seventy per cent of smartphone users look at menus online before heading to a restaurant now, according to QSR Online, but the tech wave is also transforming the food home-delivery industry. Fez Rismani, who co-founded Vancouver’s Daily Delivery with his brother Sal, says they’re always looking at ways to up their game when it comes to technology. Daily Delivery is in what is known as the “last mile” delivery game, where companies compete to bring food orders from restaurants to peoples’ doorsteps.

00_BC Tech 2018_00_72 PAGES.indd 20

HOME DELIVERY Q Fez Rismani says they’ve now connected the delivery system to the online ordering system, so customers can select menu items much like picking products on Amazon, rather than having to view a menu online and call the restaurant and make a verbal order. Daily Delivery uses Stripe, an online banking company that lets customers pay for their food over the internet. Daily Delivery also leans on white-labelling technology where a product or service produced by one company is rebranded with the name of other companies. “Rather than restaurants getting in touch with you via Foodora, where [the customer] is exposed to 200 other businesses and competing with you as another restaurant, this is much more targeted. And it builds customer loyalty,” Rismani explains. The company now has more than 250 part-time drivers in the Vancouver area who help more than 300 stores and restaurants make deliveries to customers in less than an hour. McKinsey & Co. estimates that the food delivery industry generates approximately US$83 billion annually and now makes up four per cent of all the food sold by restaurants and fast-food chains across the world. This number is expected to grow 3.5 per cent every year for the next five years. Vancouver-based food-delivery business Fresh Prep, which has 120 employees and delivers food to 16 different municipalities across the Lower Mainland with about 6,000 regular customers, has started integrating various

technologies into its business model. The company does all of its printing and labelling in-house using customized machines. The machines, for example, can tag cooler bags and label ingredients for meal kits. Fresh Prep marketing specialist Cydoney Curran says the company is also looking to implement bar codes for each order so they can track things like the life cycle of an order from production to consumer. “In our warehouse facility, we use various packaging machines to portion and package a variety of ingredients such as sauces, spice blends and dry ingredients,” adds Curran. “We also have machines that portion and chop vegetables.” With no storefront, the basis of Fresh Prep is its website, and its entire delivery system is done through software from Onfleet, a San Francisco-based technology company that specializes in logistics management software and route optimization for businesses that offer last-mile delivery. “The delivery information is shared with Onfleet each week, and our own fleet of drivers is able to access their delivery route through the app on their phone,” says Curran. “This app allows drivers to see their routes for the day which have been optimized by the Onfleet system and the Fresh Prep delivery logistics team. The driver is then able to complete tasks and push a text message out to the person receiving their Fresh Prep order that they’re on their way with the meals.” É

The 2017 BC Tech Salary Survey, conducted for HR Tech Group in partnership with Mercer, includes data for 15,000 individual salaries from 116 companies. Each year the survey is expanded to include new roles in the sector, and this year in-demand positions included: cloud/development ops, big-data developers and data scientists. “Tech salaries in B.C. continue to rise with the competition for talent,” says Allison Rutherford, executive director of HR Tech Group. “While many of the newer in-demand roles pay approximately $100,000 per year, Vancouver still lags behind salaries in other international tech sectors, and so I expect salaries here will continue to climb.” Visual effects and animation jobs remain among the top-paying jobs in the B.C. tech sector. This year’s survey was expanded to include many of the increased supervisory roles now found in these companies, as film companies expand in Vancouver. “The digital entertainment sector continues to thrive and be competitive internationally here when it comes to salaries – supervisors in animation, visual effects and technical art direction have median salaries around $150,000 per year,” says Rutherford. “Vancouver is an exciting place for global tech companies to set up shop – the wealth of talent, the business climate, our immigration policies and the collaborative tech ecosystem make Vancouver desirable. Although cost of housing remains high, when compared with housing costs in Silicon Valley, it’s lower,” explains Rutherford. “HR Tech Group is pleased to be able to showcase, in detail, how much this industry is thriving and providing high-paying jobs in our province. If you’ve got kids considering a career, it’s never been a better time to pursue one in the tech sector.” In addition to salaries, this year’s report looked at other employment practices in the tech sector. Technology offers more than high-paying jobs – over 90 per cent of B.C. tech companies provide flex hours, the ability to work from home, subsidized food and alcoholic drinks after work, and 82 per cent are pet friendly. “More than half of the tech companies surveyed even offer nap rooms,” Rutherford says.

eparate studies of Canadian technology graduates show many of the best leave to work in the United States. The big lure is much higher pay, particularly for computer engineering and computer science graduates. Two systems design engineering graduates at the University of Waterloo surveyed their 2017 graduation class and found 40 per cent were working in the U.S.. A more robust study led by the Munk School of Global Affairs’ Innovation Policy Lab at the University of Toronto revealed an even bigger brain drain.

This survey found that 25 per cent of Canadian STEM graduates were working in the U.S. and that two out of three software engineering graduates had accepted job offers stateside. While prestige and opportunities to work with industry leaders such as Google and Microsoft were mentioned as enticing, the main reason for the brain drain appears to be money. The average tech salary in San Francisco, home to Silicon Valley, is approximately US$140,000. It is US$132,000 in Seattle, with both New York and Los Angeles at an average of US$129,000.

PUSHES GENDER BARRIER

Gender diversity seen as a natural necessity for wider perspective in the financial tech industry BAILA LAZARUS

A

s cryptocurrency and blockchain become household words, interest groups are asking questions about the gender landscape in the financial technology industry of the future. And while studies are showing a drop in female involvement in the tech sector overall in the past five years, fintech represents expanding opportunities for many women.

Christine Duhaime, founder and CEO of the Digital Financial Institute: “if we’re going to get there, what do we do now to be able to shape the dialogue?” | SUBMITTED

00_BC Tech 2018_00_72 PAGES.indd 26

Lawyer Christine Duhaime, founder and CEO of the Digital Financial Institute, participated in one of the first studies in the area of women in fintech in 2015 – SWIFT’s Innotribe report Power Women in FinTech Index: Bridging the Gender Gap. “As the world is moving more toward fintech, more toward AI [artificial intelligence], one of the things we noticed is that as the banking industry changes, there are going to be changes at the C-suite level – more tech officers, more AI directors – so women should be sitting at the table,” says Duhaime. “We thought, ‘If we’re going to get there, what do we do now to be able to shape the dialogue?’ “What we found out was that what was needed were more success stories, more networking opportunities, more of a community.” The SWIFT report called for gender diversity in the fintech sector, citing studies that note key roles women have in managing household income and retail spending – in one study the number was $20 trillion in global household spending.

2018-05-25 10:11 AM

“Improving gender balance in fintech is necessary in order to truly develop products and solutions that address the needs of all users,” the report states. While Duhaime can’t speak to whether the report resulted in different hiring practices, she has seen an overall increase in women participating in fintech over the past four years. Natalie Cartwright, co-founder and chief operating officer of Finn.ai, an artificial-intelligence banking interface for banking and financial transactions, is one of those women. She believes gender inequality “makes for bad business.” Her own founding team is diverse, both in gender and ethnicity. “That really lends strength to our business because we have different world views of how the banking sector should work, what products we think are interesting,” says Cartwright. While Cartwright often finds herself the only woman at business meetings or after-work social events, she says there are a lot of opportunities such as women-only conferences for accessing networking, financing and media. “I’m freakishly optimistic in terms of getting gender parity,” says Cartwright. “We’ve got work to do, but I see changes in individuals and policies. I encourage everyone, particularly women, to get into the arena.” Dana Harvey is so passionate about achieving gender parity, she has a declaration on her LinkedIn page: “I advocate for: WOMEN – full participation, opportunities and recognition in our communities and economy.” Having women’s points of view is essential for addressing technology, says Harvey, chief communications officer with Left and the RightMesh project, which is creating an ad hoc mobile mesh networking platform for people in developing areas who don’t have internet access. “If it were only men developing solutions, they may not take into consideration the challenges that women in the community are facing,” says Harvey. “This is an opportunity from my perspective.” Looking at the blockchain, cryptocurrency arena, Harvey feels it’s a new opportunity for women that must not be wasted. “Women now have the same accessibility as men to all education available regarding cryptocurrency and investing,” she says. “The pseudo anonymous technology means there’s no indication of who’s male and who’s female, so our limitations are less to be involved in crypto-investing. We haven’t always gotten in on the ground level of things; we sure as heck are going to get in on this one.” Part of the challenge, Duhaime says, is convincing women to broadcast their successes by speaking in public. “Women tend to be less likely to seek the spotlight,” she says. “They tend to feel like it’s a bragging thing [so they’re] more uncomfortable talking about their successes. Men will agree to speak, even on their own dime, to take advantage of speaking and networking opportunities. Women won’t invest in themselves, I’ve noticed, and are reluctant to ask their companies to pay for speaking opportunities. So they get less time on stage.” Duhaime expects SWIFT’s Power Women in FinTech report to be updated in 2019. É

Eaton-Cardone notes that among the world’s largest initial coin offerings, two of the top five have female co-founders: Kathleen Breitman of Tezos, with $232 million in funding, and Galia Benartzi of Bancor, with $150 million. She adds that she was “disheartened” when attending the recent 2018 North American Bitcoin Conference in Miami, Florida. Conference organizers, she says, “appeared to dismiss women’s role in blockchain.” For instance, of the 80 conference speakers only three were women. As well, the only official conference networking event was held at a Miami strip club. “Previous conferences featured half-naked booth babes,” she laments. “Given women’s growing spending power and unique insights into consumers’ wants and needs, I believe anyone who ignores or overlooks them is holding back this industry from achieving its full potential,” Eaton-Cardone says.

echnology tenants are slicing and dicing Vancouver’s hot office space and disrupting a conservative real estate sector once dominated by button-down law firms and bankers in hushed, spacious space. No more. Now landmark office towers are being carved into bustling co-work spaces where dozens of young startups collude in glass-walled cubicles and trickedout common space. WeWork Companies Inc., leader in the shared space sector, now claims 261,000 square feet in downtown Vancouver – including a view floor in the Bentall 2 tower - while Jersey-based IWG PLC has 446,000 square feet across Metro Vancouver under the Regus banners and Spaces, which opens at 151 West Hastings Street this summer. The Hastings space will be 35,000 square feet of bricks and beams and be followed by 80,000 square feet in the former Tom Lee music store on Granville Street in October, says Wayne Berger, executive vice-president with IWG, who oversees its Canadian operations.

Virtually all the space is being taken up by high-tech firms, including startups that can rent a small co-share offices from around $600 a month, or a wired-up desk for $300. Not everyone is ecstatic about the changes. Ross Moore, senior vice-president in the Vancouver office of tenant representation firm Cresa Global Inc., says not all landlords are embracing co-working. “Don’t underestimate how concerned the landlords are about the tenant profile, because once a building has a reputation, it’s hard to change,” Moore says. “You want to set the tone early on. So the question is, do you want those co-working operators to set the tone of the building?” Moore recently spoke with the development manager for a new downtown office tower who says he would

But if co-working providers sign a lease for 10 to 15 years, the appeal of that stability could be tempting. “We’re not creating big law firms anymore,” Moore says. “The banks have a fraction of the office space they used to have.” RBC is down to two floors and signage rights at Royal Centre, Moore notes, while Ernst & Young Global Ltd., tipped as an anchor tenant in Oxford Properties Group’s planned 458,584-square-foot tower at 1133 Melville Street, has reduced its space requirements to 145 square feet per person because more workers are exercising their ability to work remotely. “It’s all going digital,” Moore explains. “We don’t have a lot of large tenants, so when you’re trying to kick off a building or find that office anchor tenant, maybe [co-sharing] is the way forward.” “Vancouver is a phenomenal co-working market,” says Colin Scarlett, an executive vice-president with Colliers International, who is working with IWG to find new locations. “We’re a branch office town, we’re not a head office town, and as a result we’ve got a tremendous number of entrepreneurs trying to find really interesting space.”

Co-working providers are meeting the need with dynamic, finished workspaces that remove the hassle small companies face when they’re trying to accommodate shifting staff requirements. “Spaces will be a vehicle for people to occupy expansion space and just space period as we have a run-up to the new construction cycle,” says Scarlett, who is working with Spaces. “Somebody needs to be a provider of new space on a shorter- or medium-term basis, and

a company like Spaces is going to win as a part of it.” Berger says this can be good for traditional landlords, adding vibrancy to a building. “Today, a co-working model like a Spaces or Regus is considered an amenity to the building. It attracts people and attracts other tenants to the building.” Berger says the Spaces outfitting will mean a large assortment of different-sized offices and team rooms for an array of tenants within a “vibrant ecosystem.”

GAINING

AN EDGE

Technology training is now embedded K-12, and the emphasis is on engaging more girls and others under-represented in the tech sector PAT JOHNSON

More than 80,000 systems analysts, software engineers and programmers will be needed in the coming decade

T

he technology sector employs more British Columbians than oil and gas, mining and forestry. But vacancies are going unfilled for lack of qualified candidates, so educators – both formal and informal – are mobilizing to fill the gaps. Tech education is a sprawling field in terms of both curriculum and delivery methods. Formal education is incorporated into the curriculum at almost every level of public education, while extracurricular “informal” education is offered through a range of programs, clubs, workshops, camps and after-school programs.

The non-profit organization Canada Learning Code is premised on the idea that “digital skills are tools of empowerment.” The group specifically aims to engage more girls, women, people with disabilities, Indigenous youth and new Canadians, groups and individuals who have been historically under-represented in the tech sector. Destination Imagination, another non-profit, includes science, technology and engineering among its “challenge areas,” encouraging young people from kindergarten through Grade 12 to undertake a team project employing technology and to compete at tournaments where kids present their solutions. “It’s really a great way to introduce students to the creative process,” says Joan Vyner, director of the program in B.C., “which is learning to recognize what problem they’re faced with and working with a team to create a solution, initiating and collaborating ideas.” Collaboration is one of the skills that comes up frequently when talking to tech educators, who are sensitive

00_BC Tech 2018_00_72 PAGES.indd 31

to the idea that, as technology evolves rapidly, it is the transferable “meta-skills” that young people need to master, rather than platform-specific proficiency. Destination Imagination, an international program franchised to local non-profits, can be tailored for use as part of a school curriculum or for use by clubs or groups, crossing the amorphous line between formal and informal education. The program is especially suited to the grades 6 and 7 applied design, skills and technology curriculum, according to Vyner. “We give them a full curriculum,” she says. “Teachers don’t have to invent anything.” Content offered by Canada Learning Code and Destination Imagination fills gaps that schools might have and dovetails neatly with the new provincial curriculum, which emphasizes self-guided learning, critical and creative thinking, flexibility, self-motivation, independent decision-making and collaborative learning. They are just two of a huge number of unique programs being tried

out in schools and communities across the province. Elementary and high schools are exploring a host of ventures, each one a sort of pilot project. King David High School in Vancouver, an independent Jewish institution, was chosen as the Canadian pilot school for an international Smart Classrooms project that uses interactive whiteboards, interconnected computers and student laptops and tablets. At Seycove Secondary, in North Vancouver, the Performance Learning Program incorporates technology as a leverage to help students learn. The magnet program embeds technology “meaningfully and authentically,” according to the school, “redefining learning in previously inconceivable ways.” Both of these are examples of technology as a tool used across the curriculum. In other new or recent initiatives, schools are focusing directly on teaching about tech. Handsworth Secondary, also in North Vancouver, is one of four schools in B.C. launching TEALS – Technology Education and Literacy in Schools – this September. Supported by Microsoft Philanthropies and already widespread in many parts of the United States, TEALS brings tech professionals into schools for regular or one-off teaching gigs. Rupi Samra-Gynane, Handsworth’s principal and an enthusiastic advocate of tech, math and science education, says it is very difficult to hire tech experts as teachers. But when she put out a call for part-time volunteers in the community to come in and teach a class or a few classes, she hoped to get four to six takers.

00_BC Tech 2018_00_72 PAGES.indd 32

In fact, she says, “16 or 17 parents reached out saying they’d be willing to help.” Because technology changes rapidly, Samra-Gynane says, an enthusiasm for the subject and desire to learn can be as important as the specifics of the course content, an assessment she has heard from employers in the sector. Computer science and technology studies, she says, develop “computational thinking and problem-solving skills that are applicable in any industry – and there is so much opportunity for employment in the industry right here in our backyard.” Educators say B.C. is doing fairly well – at elementary, high school and post-secondary levels – in both learning about technology and using technology to learn, which are two sides of the same coin. But even though the province may be doing well compared with other jurisdictions, it is not meeting demand. With more than 10,000 businesses generating $29 billion in revenue and employing more than 100,000 people, the tech sector is struggling to find enough people to fill jobs. The provincial government in January announced 2,900 new spaces in post-secondary tech-related education and is also investing $200 million in infrastructure to support science and technology education, though these initiatives will take several years to have an impact and still will not resolve the problem entirely. Estimates are that more than 80,000 systems analysts, software engineers and programmers will be needed in the coming decade. É

LABOUR SHORTAGE? THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT

New app manages temporary workers’ hours, pay and job performance for construction companies

imits on the federal temporary foreign worker program, strains on the region’s transportation network and high housing costs for workers are putting Metro Vancouver on the path towards “crisis levels in terms of labour,” according to third-generation real estate developer Mike Bucci.

Conditions have gotten so bad in the past year the vice-president of Bucci Developments Ltd. is bringing in workers from his Calgary operations to finish up work on condos dotting the Metro Vancouver landscape. But Faber Technologies CEO Sebastian Jacob isn’t counting on most developers to truck in workers from other provinces to meet deadlines. “That trial-and-error process [of hiring workers] doesn’t really need to happen,” says Jacob. His startup is seizing on the local labour shortages to become an online cupid of sorts for construction companies in need of labourers, he says. But instead of connecting users for romantic pairings,

Faber is using an online platform and mobile app to play matchmaker between developers and workers. “This is on a flexible model. It may be people in school who may only want a couple months in the summer to work who may not have a network in construction,” Jacob says. The company has a pool of about 1,000 workers, mostly unskilled, who can connect with construction companies’ HR departments when they need labour on short notice. Pay is determined based on past experience and skills, which Faber verifies. Non-skilled workers start at $18 an hour, while skilled workers can make up to $36 per hour.

2018-05-25 10:11 AM

Faber takes a percentage on the logged hours, and chief revenue officer John Reid says the company is exploring removing the maximum limits on pay. Meanwhile, the app tracks workers’ hours, skills, projects they’ve worked on and performance reviews from past contractors. Companies then review the billed hours and pay an invoice at the end of a week. Faber’s entry into the Vancouver market is a culmination of the CEO’s own job experience. Jacob helped launch the restaurant food-delivery app DoorDash in Vancouver beginning in 2015. Prior to that he worked for the leasing team at Bosa Properties Inc. Faber got its start in the Silicon Valley, where Jacob and Reid began building the product and raising capital from American investors. “A lot them pushed us to stay out there and build it out of the U.S. and launch it from San Francisco,” Jacob says, “but we were pretty adamant that Vancouver was the market we wanted to help the most.” Faber plans to expand to Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto by the end of the second quarter of 2018. “There’s quite a scalability to their model in terms of opening up in other cities,” says Bucci, before adding

00_BC Tech 2018_00_72 PAGES.indd 35

Faber still needs to build out its roster of workers to make it comparable to other temporary-labour agencies. He says Vancouver’s labour shortages have forced him to get creative, which is why he’s using Faber in addition to bringing in workers from Alberta. Although Calgary isn’t facing a shortage of temporary labourers, Bucci says he’s open to using the online labour marketplace when Faber launches in Alberta later this year. “There’s some efficiencies to be wrung out of the templabour budget. We will spend, gosh, easily $1 million per project on temp labour,” he says. “So if I can dial in 10, 15 per cent efficiencies on the temp-labour turnover and of course the management of their hours and all this fun stuff, that’s very worthwhile.” Faber is now working daily with 40 to 50 construction employers seeking workers, Jacob says. “We plan to move into other blue-collar sectors, such as resource industries and agriculture,” he adds. When asked if there is a potential for Faber to help technology companies find workers, Reid says that remains a possibility. “We understand the shortage of tech workers and potentially could see our product working in this industry,” Reid says.

he coming wave of automation is often painted as a zero-sum game: as the robots rise, workers will be squeezed out of the workforce. But the reality is more nuanced. For example, ATMs were first seen as a job-killer for bank staff, but James Bessen, a Boston University economist, found that the number of bank tellers increased because the ATM lowered branch costs so banks opened more of them. Some workers’ roles could become automated, while others will see their jobs change as smarter technology is integrated into their workplaces, according to the Toronto-based MaRS Discovery District and Google.org, the philanthropic arm of the search engine giant. The duo have launched the Employment Pathway Program to study how artificial intelligence

edical technology advances daily, and the latest test results from Ottawa and Vancouver indicate how close – and promising – the merger of technology and medicine has become. Ottawa-based iBionics has developed what many consider the next generation in vision improvement with its Diamond Eye retinal implant. The Diamond Eye uses a highly programmable, high-density silicon microchip containing 256 electrodes made of conducting diamond. The implant is surgically inserted in the back of the eye. Data from a tiny camera mounted on eyeglasses is sent wirelessly to the implant, which then converts the data into signals the brain can see. “The eye doesn’t see. The brain does,” states an iBionic

(AI) could affect – and improve – work in specific industries. They found some of the best ideas are in B.C. The manufacturing sector is facing a severe shortage of welders, for instance. Vancouver-based Novarc is addressing this skills shortage with a pipe spool welding robot that enables less-skilled workers to work alongside a robot. This human-machine collaboration not only increases quality and efficiency, it makes welding work safer. A Novarc spokesman explains that one operator can be backed by two AI welders, each with a 15-foot arm span. “Ideal for pipeline welding,” she notes. Call centres are staff-heavy and the work can be boring. Again, robots to the rescue. When Vancouver-based Finn AI scrutinized the call centre operations of Canadian banks, they found that the bulk of

explanation of how the Diamond Eye implant works. iBionics, founded in 2015 and backed with about $15 million in public and private financing, is aiming for commercial release of the Diamond Eye by 2024. Further out, but just as exciting, is a new treatment developed at the University of British Columbia (UBC) for those with spinal cord injuries. An experimental treatment that sends electrical currents through the spinal cord has improved “invisible” yet debilitating side effects for a B.C. man with a spinal cord injury. A case study about the treatment was published this spring in JAMA Neurology. “Mobility issues or paralysis are the most visible consequences of a spinal cord injury, but I know that many of my patients suffer from other ‘invisible’ consequences,” says Dr. Andrei

calls went to answering the same 50 queries that came up again and again. Their solution? Build AI-powered chatbots. Today, Finn AI is helping improve outcomes for global banks and their customers. For retailers, predicting demand for promotional sales is an imperfect science. Stock outages lead

to lost revenue, while overstock often requires discount sell-offs. Toronto-based Rubikloud, however, employs an advanced machine learning platform to help retailers forecast demand with double the accuracy, reducing operational overhead by 50 per cent and stock outages by two times, MaRS says.

Krassioukov, principal investigator of the study and professor of medicine at UBC and chair in rehabilitation research with ICORD, a Vancouver research centre focused on spinal cord injuries. The treatment involves epidural stimulation by surgically inserting electrodes permanently above the spinal cord and then stimulating the nerve cells in the spinal cord with electrical currents.

A team of researchers at ICORD has shown the treatment improved the spinal patient’s ability to control his blood pressure as well as other benefits, but more work is needed before the invention gets to market. “We see very interesting and exciting results but as a clinician-scientist, I need more robust data before I would recommend this procedure,” Krassioukov says.

TECHNOLOGY DIRECTORY

A comprehensive listing of technology companies in British Columbia, organized by industry sector. How companies get listed in BC Tech BC Tech is the most complete and comprehensive guide to the province’s high-tech industries, and we at Business in Vancouver pride ourselves on providing the most up-to-date information available at press time. We gather company information by searching online resources and business publications, making initial contact by email and verifying specific company information by phone. In all, BIV makes a minimum of three attempts to verify each company’s information.

If we do not receive written or verbal confirmation that the data is correct, then we have no choice but to delete that company from the database. If your company is not listed in the directory, and the services that you provide fit into one of the categories listed in the index, you can either call BIV at 604-688-2398 and ask for Anna Liczmanska or email the pertinent information to annamae@biv.com. To ensure your listing, please contact a BIV Magazines representative and pay the guarantee of $35.
