๐Ÿ’ก Peakโ€™s vision is to change the way the world works. Weโ€™re pioneering the Decision Intelligence category, applying AI to the commercial decision-making process.ย 
Imagine running a business without the internet, or a CRM. In 10 yearsโ€™ time, the thought of running a business without a DI platform will be just as unfathomable. Our platform is already being used by big names, including Nike, ASOS, KFC and PepsiCo, and we need the very best engineers to help shape this emerging tech. Join us, and be part of the team putting Decision Intelligence in the hands of every business!ย ๐Ÿ™Œ

Uber has decided, for the first time ever, to share its two-way rating system and will now allow users to view their feedback (even the bad ones ๐Ÿ˜ณ). The new feature is set to be available globally and can be accessed by the privacy menu.
If you happen to be shocked by your results, then Uber has also released a few tips to help you to improve your ratings:
  • Pack it in, pack it out ๐Ÿ—‘
  • Buckle up ๐Ÿš—
  • Be ready โณ
  • Treat everyone and everything with respect โœŒ๏ธ

In the UK, on average, the length of time it takes for a suitable heart or lung donor is 18-24 months but can be considerably longer (or shorter) depending on certain factors - the main factor is the patientโ€™s blood type.๐Ÿฉธ
A new revelation by scientists could be about to change many lives, with the creation of a universal blood-type organ for transplant. ๐Ÿซ A team of scientists in the US have successfully converted eight type-A lungs into type-O lungs using a combination of technologies. The new technology is set to be a BIG deal as it allows surgeons to use lungs that couldnโ€™t have been used otherwise, due to infection or injury.
But, it could be a considerably long time before a patient receives a converted organ as the technology is still awaiting approval to be used in clinical trials.
