Building Smart City with Internet of Things

Building Smart City with Internet of Things | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Do you like the idea of living in a city with which you can interact – a living city with which you can set up a reciprocal relationship and which can cater to your needs. Throughout the world such cities are being built right from Masdar in Abu Dhabi to Songdo in South Korea. It is predicted that by 2050, about 75% of the world’s population will live in cities. This will put a huge strain on the already stretched resources of the city such as its transport system and emergency networks. To handle the huge influx of people our urban planners need to come up with new and innovative ways to increase the efficiency of existing resources while at the same time reducing costs and improving the overall quality of life of its citizens.

Culture Creates the Economics of Innovation

Culture Creates the Economics of Innovation | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Anyone familiar with the back stories of Thomas Edison or George Washington Carver will note that their labs were not only places of great invention but also of great learning. "See one, do one, teach one" is ancient manta of the craft guilds. This approach still prevails in the training of doctors, master electricians and design engineers.

"Let’s Kill All The (Payments) Innovators!"

"Let’s Kill All The (Payments) Innovators!" | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
“The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.”

Those words were uttered by Dick The Butcher in Shakespeare’s “Henry VI” as
the best way to removing one of the biggest obstacles he perceived standing in the way of the revolution he was masterminding.

After reading The Clearing House’s (TCH) latest white paper on the future of payments and financial services, it seems they’d like to modernize that sentiment just a bit.

Driverless Cars, Analytics and Tough Standards for 21st Century Innovation

Everybody talks about innovation these days, but the word is used so lightly. Every new app, gadget or product feature is now “innovation”. A few decades ago, “innovation” implied a life-changing advance in technology: the transistor, the computer, space flight. Does it mean anything that we speak of innovation more casually today than we did in the past century? Maybe.

Innovation of the week: Watch this flexible phone control apps as it bends | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

In 2013, Samsung launched the Galaxy Round smartphone with a flexible display… though the phone really didn’t have any legitimate reason to exist. As we’ve seen happen a few times in the years since Samsung first entered the smartphone market, the company created a consumer device that included new technology it had been developing, but the company didn’t bother to first determine how that new technology might be made useful.

How to create a physical space for innovation

In 1986, commenting on the internal problems plaguing his new parent company General Motors, Ross Perot took aim at the automaker’s entrenched culture and plodding delivery processes. At the time a new car took five years to design. “Heck, we won World War Two in four years,” he remarked to The Wall Street Journal. “This isn’t a moon shot, it’s just a car.”

Tablets and disruptive innovation | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

It used to be that most devices in schools were desktop machines of either the Windows or Apple varieties, but recently many schools have been switching to mobile devices like the iPad or web-based devices like the Chromebook.

Federal Circuit Should Reconsider Ariosa v. Sequenom: The Panel Decision Threatens Modern Innovation

It’s no secret that the Section 101 jurisprudence is a mess, as novelty and obviousness inquiries are now being analyzed under the rubric of subject matter eligibility. This follows the recent quartet of Supreme Court cases—Bilski, Mayo, Myriad, and Alice—which have significantly narrowed the field of patent-eligible inventions. Making matters worse, lower courts have interpreted the “101 quartet” more broadly than necessary, invalidating many important innovations in the process.
