Note from the Curator of Innovators. Innovation. Just Inspired (socialmediapearls)

Note from the Curator of Innovators. Innovation. Just Inspired (socialmediapearls) | Innovators. Innovation. Just Inspired. | Scoop.it

I have a passion for those who innovate and inspire. It doesn’t matter whether they are in a far and remote place that mainstream Canada, US or UK has not heard  any thing about or whether it is “in your face” wonder. I am humbled by them all. I am also curious how business operations incorporate innovations into their work. Is it free flowing or is it wrapped with bureaucracy. Do you have the same curiosity? Then you have stopped by the right place.

 

Welcome to my Scoop.it magazine: Innovators. Innovation. Just Inspired.

Microsoft and NetClean Provide PhotoDNA Technology to Help Law Enforcement Fight Online Child Sexual Exploitation
Shirley Williams (appearoo.com/ShirleyWilliams)'s insight:

Microsoft  developed PhotoDNA technology and provides it free of charge to law enforcement to help track down human traffickers- especially those who trade minors into the sex trade.

The number of those forced into the slave trade and/or the sex trade is alarming.

It is good see high profile tech giants helping to battle the cause.

China Builds the World's Largest Battery, a Building-Sized, 36-Megawatt-Hour Behemoth | Innovators. Innovation. Just Inspired. | Scoop.it

The largest battery in the world has arrived, and you likely won’t be surprised where it landed: Hebei Province, China. The State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) and electric car maker BYD--the company that most recently made big headlines a few years back when Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway took a 10 percent stake--have teamed to create a massive battery array capable of storing 36 megawatt-hours of electricity.
