Google frappe intelligente lentilles de contact accord pour suivre le diabète et fixer l'hypermétropie

Farid Mheir's curator insight, July 17, 2014 1:44 PM

Strangely I never wrote about this but it certainly is worth a mention because Google has now made very strong moves towards "atoms and not bits" as Sergei Brin put it a few days ago, stating that Google has invested in search (bits) for a long time and is now complementing its focus to physical devices (atoms) such as the self driving car or here the contact lens.


This story is of particular importance as it shows that Google is not in the business of making contact lenses (or cars) but providing the R&D to disrupt industries that are not making the radical shifts they can by using digital technology.

Farid Mheir's curator insight, May 30, 2014 4:56 PM

Detailed story behind the skype translator solution that Microsoft just demoed. Full of insights it is not a technical paper however. Nor does it bring insight on how this technology can be used but in business settings, this will be a revolution. In canada and Quebec in particular, many meetings are held in english because a single person does not speak french. This tech would remove this common denominator requirement.


As with anything, this may be more appropriate initially for informal conversation than detailed, highly technical and specialized topics, which is the case in most business settings. So I assume this to be a nice ice breaker but not a real solution in business in the near term.


Nevertheless, any strategic plan that looks beyond the 3-5 year horizon should definitely assume this will become viable, whether it is from Microsoft, Google or others.

A Scientific Guide to Hashtags: How Many, Which Ones, and Where to Use Them | Social Media Today | Social media and languages | Scoop.it

Internet language has evolved considerably over the past few years as social media has taken off. Hashtags are a huge part of this evolution. What once was a telephone button is now a social media phenomenon.  No wonder people are curious.

 

When they ask, I tell them that hashtags are a pound sign immediately followed by a keyword. They're used for categorization on social media. Yes, they can be annoying if overused. And yes, I've seen the hashtag video of Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake.

 

Hashtags also have the potential to be truly valuable. The stats and info below make a pretty clear case that we should be understanding, using, and appreciating hashtags....
