How Massive Can You Make Virtual Reality, literally?

How Massive Can You Make Virtual Reality, literally?

Ever since the Ocu­lus Rift hit Kick­starter sev­er­al years ago, VR enthu­si­asts have been on the edge of their seats wait­ing for the brave new world pow­ered by vir­tu­al real­i­ty… which to date has been slow to come at best and a dud at worst. Ocu­lus got swal­lowed up by Face­book and has been sit­ting in a pile of hope­ful appli­ca­tions yet to come ever since. Sam­sung’s Gear VR is being prac­ti­cal­ly giv­en away on street cor­ners in an attempt to gain users. Every­body else in the game is expe­ri­enc­ing sim­i­lar results. That might be because as cool as it is to sit in one place and be able to expe­ri­ence con­certs or sports events from around the world in 3D while on your couch, and as cool as it is to be immersed inside of a game instead of play­ing as — real­ly — more of an observ­er of the action than a part, the holy grail of VR is still what most peo­ple dream of and are wait­ing for. Any­one who has read any of my posts regard­ing vir­tu­al real­i­ty, aug­ment­ed real­i­ty, or the like know that I’m refer­ring to, of course, a Holodeck-like expe­ri­ence. True immer­sion comes when…

Giftbit is Giving You Your own Online Currency and Gift Cards

Giftbit is Giving You Your own Online Currency and Gift Cards

When Leif Baradoy was help­ing his broth­er move he found a draw­er full of unused gift cards. This was the inspi­ra­tion for Gift­bit, the com­pa­ny Baradoy would go on to found with Peter Locke. Gift­bit offers com­pa­nies a ser­vice where they can send cus­tomers dig­i­tal gift cards with set expi­ra­tion dates through email, then fol­low up via email to remind the cus­tomers to use the cards before they expire. Because of their busi­ness mod­el, the com­pa­ny los­es no mon­ey if the cus­tomer does­n’t respond. “Gift­bit cus­tomers are able to track, audit, and man­age their gift card offers and cam­paigns down to the recip­i­ent lev­el,” Baradoy told Geek­Wire last fall. The com­pa­ny received ven­ture fund­ing ear­ly in 2016 from Founder’s Co-op and Freestyle, and in the time between then and now have iden­ti­fied a need that they have just announced dur­ing TechCrunch Dis­rupt SF that they will fill, the need for a busi­ness to be able to cre­ate their own dig­i­tal cur­ren­cy on the fly and in what­ev­er form they want — pro­mo codes, refund cred­its, or dig­i­tal gift cards for sale. This new offer­ing can help busi­ness­es in a num­ber of ways, but the one that jumps out to me is retain­ing prof­its when a cus­tomer decides they want…

What is Happening at UBER at this Very Moment?

What is Happening at UBER at this Very Moment?

Well if you thought Uber had devel­oped a lot of ene­mies in the taxi busi­ness before by bring­ing a new lev­el of com­pe­ti­tion to the some­what monop­o­lized indus­try, you can bet that those ene­mies will be even more incensed with the com­pa­ny’s lat­est move — and per­haps iron­i­cal­ly, bring the very dri­vers that they gave a new lease on work­ing into the ene­my fold. In the last week Uber has unveiled their fleet of self-dri­v­ing cars in the test mar­ket of Pitts­burgh, PA. But before you pull out your smart­phone to jump into the future, you should know that not every­one in the area will nec­es­sar­i­ly get one of these autonomous vehi­cles when they call for a ride. And those who do will be joined by an Uber dri­ver sit­ting behind the wheel just in case and anoth­er in the pas­sen­ger seat tak­ing notes. A hand­ful of Ford Fusions make up the small group of self-dri­v­ing Uber cars in the city, but there will soon be Vol­vo XC90 SUVs join­ing the fray, once they’ve com­plet­ed test­ing in Swe­den. And if you hap­pen to be one of those chomp­ing at the bit for a ride in one because you think it will…

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…

Which Video Streaming Providers will Survive in the Next 5 Years?

Which OTT Providers will Survive in the Next 5 Years?

There are many more OTT providers than you real­ize.  One ser­vice offers to pro­vide you with 600 chan­nels. A Mash­able arti­cle promis­es 33 Ways to Watch Free TV Online and of course there are the usu­al sus­pects; Hulu, Net­flix, Ama­zon Prime, CBS, Crack­le and the list goes on and on. By the way the indus­try term for Video Stream­ing is OTT for over the top. But Which Video Stream­ing Providers will Sur­vive and Why? In Secret For­mu­la to Win the OTT Race Kei­th Zubchevich talks about the impor­tance of qual­i­ty over quan­ti­ty.   But how do you mea­sure qual­i­ty? In our data crazed world most sure­ly the algo­rithm mas­ters will find a way. Some would say that qual­i­ty pro­gram­ming only comes from expe­ri­enced direc­tors and pro­duc­ers.  Some of the most suc­cess­ful shows like House of Cards and Home­land are cre­at­ed, writ­ten and pro­duced by sea­soned pro­fes­sion­als. It’s dif­fi­cult to guar­an­tee the cre­ation of lots of suc­cess­ful shows.  OTT providers will employ dif­fer­ent strate­gies to accom­plish this objec­tive.  Per­haps some OTT providers may opt to buy cable net­works and/or a cable com­pa­ny.  Per­haps Ama­zon will buy Com­cast. Are YouTube Stars Pro­fes­sion­al? Would you con­sid­er Michelle Phan, one of the longest sus­tain­ing YouTube stars…
