Tech companies and researchers are working to turn Elon Musk's vision of "neural lace" brain computing into reality. Their efforts aim to merge natural brain function with artificial intelligence.
Combined, the 10 largest tech companies have acquired 50 AI companies in the last 5 years, targeting facial recognition startups, chatbots, chip makers, and more.
Photonic computer chips mimic the way the human brain operates, but at 1000x faster speeds.
Using weather-related sensor data from smartphones, Google plans to predict ‘micro-climates’ (and maybe even map your commute away from inclement weather).
With the iPhone as a glaring example, and stretching through Amazon and e-commerce and more recently blockchain and bitcoin, many innovations have initially been met with derision by big company CEOs. History often proved them wrong.
Hardware businesses are brutal. Here's what consumer hardware startups can learn from failures like Jawbone, Juicero, Pebble and others. Using intelligence on financing trends, failure rates, and exit activity, we analyzed why so many hardware startups fail (and some succeed).
