Diffbot – Machine learning is the new Big Data and Giving it away might be a Money Maker.

Machine learning is the new Big Data and Giving it away might be a Money Maker.

“Everything’s becoming intelligent, but the limiting factor of intelligence is access to structured data,” Tung says. Diffbot, an artificial intelligence company that helps clients extract and combine data from multiple Web sources wants to scrape all the data on the web (all of it) to put it into a structured format. Making it useful for all sorts of business purposes and make money doing so.  The company says its technology “uses computer vision and NLP algorithms to extract and structure any web page into the world’s largest structured database… with no human curation or oversight.” Founded in 2009 The Palo Alto, CA-based startup announced today it raised $10 million from investors to expand its “knowledge-as-a-service” offerings to businesses and consumer apps.  They have raised close to $13 million since its seed round in 2012.  Diffbot’s plan is to catalog trillions of facts across the Web—many of them drawn from page elements such as comment forums, which can’t be mined by traditional search engines. Web-mining can be a competitive advantage for apps as well as the proliferating devices of the Internet of Things, Tung says. The startup says it has made a significant start on that goal, having indexed 1.2 billion…

Disney Research on Augmented Reality Demand you Color Within the Lines

Disney Research on Augmented Reality Demand you Color Within the Lines

That good ol’ company Disney is always on the forefront of doing something cool. Earlier this month we spoke about their using Li-Fi (Read Li-Fi article here). Now they’re working with AR for kids who like to color in books. Why, you might ask? Because they’ve figure out how to turn 2D flat colored images and transform them into 3D characters that you can manipulate. So it takes the image of the character in the coloring book and maps the colors applied by the user to a pre-made 3D animation of the character. So a child begins coloring the characters, the character itself comes to life before your very eyes – that is, with the help of an AR app on any given device. Essentially, as the child draws and colors, the Disney character then springs to life in real-time like magic. Disney (jobs at Disney) believes that technologies such as AR could help re-ignite their innate drive at being creative by integrating the technology with coloring books. By providing a bridge between real-world activities and digital enhancements, Disney hopes the mind of child could equally be enhanced in tandem. “[C]hildren spend an increasing amount of time passively consuming content…

Fuse Li-Fi and LED Fabrics together and you get the Future of Media?

What could the Future of Media look like if you fuse Li-Fi and LED Fabrics together?

So if you recall not too long ago I had written about Li-Fi or light fidelity and how it was a game changer. Well it so happens that the inventor Professor Harald Haas has recently presented a TED talk showcasing a prototype example of how his “light internet” would work. I’ll reiterate again what this is, “broadband transmission using the Visible Light Spectrum or VLS. This is part of the electromagnetic spectrum, just like radio waves, is safe, practical to use and multi-functional”. So with standard-off-the-shelf LED’s (light-emitting diode), numerous tests were made and it appears that LED lighting fixtures can transmit wireless data at very competitive high speeds. I definitely recommend that you watch the TED talk here: A commercial product started shipping several months ago as Haas has launched a commercial venture called pureLiFi. The product, Li-Flame, turns standard LED fixtures into wireless Internet access points. Let’s take this idea a little further. You know we’ve also been following wearable tech like Disney’s EM-Sense, but what would happen if the clothes you wore on your body was a Li-Fi hotspot or hub? Well you know that the applications can only be guessed at but researchers at the Korea…

Apple VR is Going Full speed with Flyby Media and 3 other Company Acquisitions.

Apple VR is Going Full speed with Flyby Media and 3 other Company Acquisitions.

Right off the back, Apple VR? Is Apple ready to push into the VR game by buying Flyby Media? Just so you know back in the Steve Jobs days, Apple had attempted Virtual Reality headsets and the like but pushed it aside because it was still not up to par. The tide has changed with increased competition in the space from the likes of Samsung with Gear VR, Facebook’s Oculus Rift, Magic Leap (jobs at Magic Leap), as well as significant efforts from Google and Microsoft. If you don’t know Flyby, they’re a company that was key in the development of two things we’ve spoken briefly about in the recent past, the first being machine vision, and the other is Google’s Project Tango. The company has developed tech that allows mobile phones to “see” the world around them. So Flyby is taking the IP, branching its capabilities and spreading it across the consumer spectrum. I’m not going to get into what Flyby’s app is capable of doing because it’s a gimmick, but I assure you the tech behind the app, which is a very “internet of things” is the sole reason for Apple’s interest. The hard thing is for machines…

Haptic Suit Technology and Virtual Reality Porn can kill a Marriage – Thank God!

Haptic Suit Technology and Virtual Reality Porn can kill a Marriage - Thank God!

What’s there to say about Virtual Reality Porn?  Let’s begin with the fact that Samsung’s Gear VR powered by Oculus sold out in 2 days on Amazon over the 2015 holiday season. To make this even more interesting Goldman Sachs, one of the largest banking firms predicts Virtual Reality will dominate over Television in 10 years’ time. Goldman Sachs analyst Heather Bellini says of Augmented Reality and VR, “it’s really going to change, I think, many aspects of our life and be completely disruptive,… over the next 10 years, it’s going to take off.” Gaming and entertainment will drive much of the growth, but car makers, retailers and even interior designers could bank on VR technology, Goldman said. Now make note all of this is based on hardware sales, Goldman Sachs’ estimated VR software sales figure of $72 billion, VR would generate $182 billion, nearly twice as much money than the TV market. You know what I say? That’s absurd, I say the Virtual Reality Porn industry is gonna blow past those numbers way sooner than 2025! And let’s not forget that it’s going to be way more than just visual stimulation! Virtual reality is how the masses will be…
