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.
