We used our patent search engine to dive into the research efforts of 4 companies studying teleoperation concepts. In these driverless scenarios, remotely based operators could assume control of a vehicle should it require manual intervention.
Price/Earnings and Price/Sales are sooooo 2001
According to the founder of $20B unicorn WeWork, it is now about price/energy and price/spirituality.
A look at the research coming out of universities, corporate R&D teams, and government research labs that CB Insights thinks you should know about.
Rx E. Coli
Drug company Synlogic is currently studying the safety of a drug made from gene-modified E. coli. The drug — designed to treat certain rare, but serious, metabolic diseases — deploys bioengineered bacteria into the human gut.

The new E. coli-based drug is the latest innovation in “synthetic biology,” which we breakdown here.
1000x faster than your brain
A team led by researchers from Exeter, Oxford, and Münster universities has developed specialized photonic microchips, which could one day help to create computers that can store and process huge amounts of information at faster speeds than the human brain. Read about it.
