Google Inc. Research Reports
On August 15, 2014, TechCrunch reported that Google Inc. (Google) has acquired the team behind Jetpac. As per the TechCrunch report, the Company is expected to use the Jetpac team to enhance search around location information by photo data. According to the article, Jetpac's CTO Pete Warden is a computer vision professional and a perfect fit for a Google acquisition at this juncture. The report highlighted that Jetpac's system locates visual signs, for instance the amount of pictures with mustaches in them to conclude the fashion style or how many hipsters are in a particular site. This provides distinctive background information about an area where the photo was taken. Jetpac has also attained real-time local object recognition on video from a phone's camera. This technology could conceivably augment Google Goggles. According to the TechCrunch report, Jetpac will soon be drawing out the app from the App store in the coming days and will cease the support on September 15, 2014.

Verizon Communications Inc. Research Reports
On August 12, 2014, Verizon Communications Inc. (Verizon) aided The University of Virginia's Center for Diabetes Technology and the Stanford University School of Medicine to conduct clinical trials on children with type 1 diabetes. According to the Company, using Verizon's network technology, campers aged 7 to 17 participated in a clinical trial of an artificial pancreas at a diabetes summer camp in Boulder Creek, California. The artificial pancreas is a system that calculates blood glucose levels every few minutes, through a continuous glucose monitor. A smartphone with distinctive software then transmits this information to an insulin pump that computes and can release the requisite amount of insulin into the body. To enable the entire process, Verizon is offering the underlying technology via its Wireless Private Network with 4G LTE access and secure Private IP network along with the its HIPAA-enabled Data Center Services, permitting the researchers to securely trace, access and stock patient data from the trial.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
