Google: Plans

Google: Plans

Digital Car

  • Google could consider investing in Tesla Motors. Tesla’s Electric Cars combined with Google’s Self driving Technology, Android would make nice “Digital Electric Cars”!

Artificial Intelligence: Platforms & Services

  • Google could consider buying Viv Labs – if Viv’s technology can add something of value to Google Now and possibly the Search Engine.

Smart Home

  • The Nest Team seems isolated from the rest of the Google Team. Why not add some Product Design Expertise to Google?

Robotics

  • The 8 Robotics Companies Google bought – are laying idle. Those Robots (and parts of Robots) deserve a bit of attention, don’t they?!

Next Generation Web Search Engine  #AtMyVentures

A Search Engine based on Real World “Entity” Recognition in Webpages and Information Extraction (IE)

Rather than just Word indexing and Hyperlink Analysis (Current Generation Web Search Engine – introduced in 1998 by Sergey Brin and Larry Page through the Google Search Engine.)

We have had the same Search Engine technology for the past 17 years, with little incremental improvements.

Incremental Improvements included:

1. Refining Search Results based on User Clicks, etc (using Machine Learning Models. Changing “Parameter” values in Equations and testing to find out if users like the newer version more).

2. Parallel & Distributed Processing (to handle the ever increasing size of the Web and the number of Documents it contains)

3. Caching Search Results (for faster responses)

4. Adding “External” Semantic Data on the Search Result page, and in “Domain Specific” Search Engines (e.g., Books, Shopping, etc.).

Instances: Google bought Freebase and integrated the “Knowledge Graph”. Microsoft bought Powerset – the Wikipedia Search Engine.

Structure & Architecture

Customizable Modular Home

Robots that can customize a modular house (built of connectable bricks and rearrange-able) according to your design. In other words, you specify a design for your house on your Computer and Robots build / rearrange bricks to build the house (and 3D Print parts if necessary).

Inspiration for the Idea:

I was thinking of how my house is going to look like. And I thought, it would be cool if I could change the overall structure of my house every now and then (Living in the same house for years would be way too boring!) and my wife, who wants to be an Architect, should like it too (Changing the structure of the house to suit changing tastes).

“Stacey Burr
Vice president, wearable sports electronics, adidas
Physiology and activity sensors will enable volumes of data to be collected from athletes unobtrusively. Predictive analytics will be delivered through alerts, enabling coaches to respond in real time to performance shifts or injury risks. When injuries occur, sensors will inform rehabilitation strategies. These insights will enable coaches to be more precise in their training methods and athletes to sustain peak performance over time.”
John Coulson
Head of professional football services, Opta
“The biggest advancement will be the acceptance and integration of qualified data scientists into a team’s back-room staff. This Moneyball approach will continue to change football as it has changed many sports.”

“Microsoft has patched a critical bug in its software that had existed for 19 years.
The bug had been present in every version of Windows since 95, IBM said.
Attackers could exploit the bug to remotely control a PC, and so users are being urged to download updates.”

Learning Everything There Is To Know In A Subject Area

Learning Everything There Is To Know In A Subject Area

I learn by thinking.

I employ Logic and Mathematics.

I find patterns.

Suppose, I am learning Microeconomics.   

 
Microeconomics in a Nutshell

 

Physics tries to explain everything there is in this Universe in terms of a few fundamental laws.

Smart Home With Physical Digital Integration: What The Future Holds

So, how does your “Sweet Home” gonna look like in a few years?

I tell you what, lots and lots of Automation!


Imagine

  • Your Automated Cook downloads a recipe from Web
  • Searches for the lowest price of ingredients deliverable on time and orders ingredients on a shopping site.
  • The shopping site delivers your product via a drone (Saw the Amazon Prime Air?) and transmits a message to your Home Robot.
  • Your Home Robot picks up the delivery and passes it to your Automated Cook.
  • Automated Cook cooks food according to the recipe.


Imagine

  • A Baby Care-taker Sleeping Bed
  • Responds to baby’s screams (detection by using sensors) with movements of the bed, music etc. (to soothe the baby)
  • Automatically feeds the baby (at pre-defined time).
  • Automatically cleanses your baby (detection by using sensors; delicate actuators). (Obviously, your Baby can’t go to toilet by itself, can it?)
  • Integrated Web-cam for parents. Watch your baby on your Smartphone, swipe on your touchscreen and the Baby care-taker sleeping bed responds to the instruction.
  • Customizable Sleeping Bed with off-the-shelf “Components”. Your baby likes toys? Buy the toy “Component”!

Sounds futuristic?

Not at all!

These are some of the Products and Services you shall see in your coming Smart Home!

Meet this home Robot from iRobot.


Still not impressed? 


How about this!

 

Just as people today have pets, Baxter makes me feel that people will soon consider Home Robots as their pets.

Physical Digital Integration: Manufacturing Cloud & Car 2.0

Elastic Manufacturing or Manufacturing Cloud

A manufacturing facility, full of programmable Robots and Manipulators and 3D Printers, that can manufacture anything you design and the facility is scalable – it grows, produces more with need.

Startups and individuals would be able to order products on mass scale. There would be no need to set up an ultra-expensive manufacturing facility of their own. The barrier to entry would get lower. Open source would be a better model for the design of products. Anyone would be able to customize the designs and order. More innovations would follow. This would also mean more orders for the manufacturing facility.  

In short, it has the potential to start an era of proliferation of manufacturing startups in America!

It would introduce something entirely new to the world – “Elastic Manufacturing” or “Manufacturing Cloud”.

Components:

  • Fab lab
  • 3D Printing / Additive manufacturing Facility
  • New Materials
  • Biomaterials
  • Atomic Scale Manufacturing
  • Sensors, Networking & Big Data
  • Computer Aided Modeling, Simulation & Manufacturing
 


Car 2.0

  • App Market Integration (Secured. Detached from the controller Electronics)
  • Automation; Advanced Collision avoidance system
  • Ultimate goal:
  • Electric / Hybrid Car
  • Car wheels can generate power that can be fed into electric car and used as fuel. It would increase fuel efficiency.
