Very very impressive how far image recognition has gotten. Cannot wait to get that kind of stuff working on progress report images from construction site inside +GenieBelt 
 
So AI is finally better than a human at Where's Waldo. What more impactful applications can we have when big data meets deep learning?
By their second birthday, children are learning the names of things. What’s this? Cat. And this? Whale. Very good. What’s this color? Red!

Good news and just what I hoped to happen. Attempting a shot at must haves: 24h battery at full usage, a week at sporadic usage. I would love to keep the camera, but fear it will have to go for acceptance. Perhaps if it is cool rather then nerd cool they can keep it in? Give it a companion gadget like a ring for finger control instead of touching near you face. Improve wink interface and add various glance detection for hands free operation.

Powerful and stunning images. Do not hope that any humans are still too close.
 
"Calbuco, a stratovolcano in southern Chile, began erupting yesterday at 7pm local time. First spewing massive ash clouds then, at 10pm, erupting explosively as its fragile structure collapsed inwards. Here’s all the stunning imagery and video; we’ll keep it updated as this develops. You can see it from space!"

Great inspiration on why even smaller companies should try to fail as much and as fast as GoogleX - it is cheaper. That is easy to convey, but spend the hour to hear great stories from the trenches of GoogleX, the Xerox Parc or today?
 
Incredibly inspiring and insightful: Astro Teller discusses the hardest part of the innovation process—the part where you come into contact with the realities of weather, physics, humanity, and much much more whose impact on your work won’t be predicted by a book or taught in school. These unexpected and unforgiving elements stand between you and the moment when your invention or company has made something in the world fundamentally different and (hopefully!) better. And they are what’s going to teach you and test you and carry you to the right answer (eventually!). You have to experience what it’s like to try something, fail, learn, and try again...relentlessly, dispassionately, creatively. Astro will share never-before-heard stories—and hard-earned lessons—from Project Loon, the self-driving car, and more. Google[x]—the semi-secret “moonshot factory” for new technology that sounds like science fiction—has gradually been opening itself up and making contact with the real world.

Read and behold.
 
A company that rapidly gains to a valuation of a billion dollars and beyond is sometimes called a unicorn. Salim Ismail and his team have analyzed and ranked the top 100 most scalable organizations.

Ouch, not even plants are safe down under :s
 
The Gympie Gympie is an Australian plant with spindly stems and heart-shaped light green leaves. Brushing your hand against it can make you throw up from the pain. Using it as toilet paper has made people shoot themselves. This plant will ruin you.

Great article about psychological hindrances for good communication including some hard stats underlining that you probably have them too. For one, the transparancy problem is that most people believe others easily understand their intentions but very rarely they actually do. Go read it and then try to be a good emitter. 
The psychological quirks that make it tricky to get an accurate read on someone's emotions

Proud to say GenieBelt now has document sharing as part of our project collaboration platform. We are freemium so please try us out if you work with others on projects and need to handle tasks (Gantt), chat, documents, progress reporting w images and approval of work as part of your work flow. Works on iOS and Android.

It is meant for construction who really deserve and need good digital tools, but people in "here" should be able to benefit as much.

Any feedback is appreciated especially negative as that is so much more informative and helps steer product development.
 
We just launched Document Management for Construction! Now you can get an overview, communicate, collaborate and get information even easier with GenieBelt

Private space stations in the horizon. First I have seen from Bigelow, very interesting concepts.

currently continually amazed by exponential growth (singularity), commercialisation of space and wonders of nature (three of them on my banner :)).

Historically I have grokked physics, IT, mobile, and startup companies.

All the time pondering about people, technology, social networks, societies and what makes us tick.
