Biotech: Aromyx has built a solution for the digital capture of scent and taste – the EssenceChip™ – placing human olfactory and taste receptors onto a disposable biochip, with a digital readout. The Aromyx platform will be invaluable to large corporations in the food & beverage, consumer packaged goods, chemicals and agriculture industries, as it will enable digital manipulation of taste and scent, akin to how we work with images and sounds today.
Like visual recognition in the 1980’s and speech recognition in the 1990’s, olfactory and taste recognition technology is set to advance — and Aromyx has a proprietary breakthrough technology with many enterprise, defense, consumer and therapeutic applications.
Internet of Things (IoT): Within four years, the amount of data generated by tens of billions of industrial and commercial IoT devices will be massive enough to overwhelm the entire Internet. Our solution? Process, analyze and respond to IoT data right where it originates—at the edge of the network. At FogHorn, our “intelligent edge” software platform enables unprecedented levels of automation, operational efficiency, cost savings and much more.
Robotics: Anki wants to take Artificial Intelligence out of the lab and into your everyday life through consumer robotics products that are fun and friendly.
The company launched Cozmo Code Lab a while back so that fans could easily program the little robot. This allows both adults and children to learn to code Cozmo, whether they want to make him move, recognize faces, do animations, and lots more.
Mobility: Green Light Always is an international startup producing a hardware/software smart traffic signal solution utilizing artificial intelligence. They retrofit each intersection to be real-time adaptive to traffic conditions and communicate with surrounding intersections to create a smart network. This is achieved with video recognition, communications equipment, and artificial intelligence algorithms.
They are conducting a pilot installation in a South American capitol city on 6 live intersections. Following this they will expand to conduct multiple simultaneous demonstrations in additional cities.
