Mark Gregot, co-founder, and CEO, NuEyes, wanted to create augmented reality (AR) smart glasses for people who have low vision or are vision impaired. He co-opted the technology from his time in the US Navy to make a prototype in 2013. Four years later, with $1.2 Million from angel investors and a major national insurance carrier is now covering up to 50 percent of the cost of the product which makes it more affordable for the visually impaired.
Gartner says by 2020, the number of connected devices will reach more than 21 billion. With all those people online, cybercrime is on the rise. According to data in an article in CSO Online, humans now outnumber machines as the top target for cybercriminals. Top that off with the fact that by 2021, there will be 73 million smart homes in North America, which will make up more than 50% of all households.
Autonomous cars need to see everything all the time. They need to understand driving conditions during any kind of weather and in every scenario possible from country roads to city streets. To do this, autonomous cars' eyes use sensors to see the road. The current method is LIDAR which is light-based radar. In this scenario, a sensor sends short pulses of invisible laser light and then times how long it takes to see the reflection from that light.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
