Microsoft Research Brings GPS to the Cloud

GPS is a big battery drain for smartphones, tablets, and other GPS devices. Microsoft is trying to solve this problem by combining short bursts of GPS data with other data sets, allowing the server-side to do more of the processing with less information.

Microsoft has a lot of talent in the area of machine learning and may be uniquely qualified to tackle this issue. More battery-efficient GPS is something we could all benefit from, at any rate.
