    Smart City : cities of today are just a glimpse of what we were promised in SF movies. Make them more efficient, healthier, and hyper connected to improve peoples lives by orders of magnitude

    Smart Energy : everything around us including every living being on this planet is powered by something. We humans are not that smart in energy usage and thats why we need you to show us the future of smart energy usage, awareness, utilization and optimization

    Connected Cars – we humans spend a huge chunk of our lives in the car. More than 37 million hours are wasted EVERY day just to drive to and from work. Cars are dumb, make them smarter and show us how the future of connectivity in the car world looks like

  • Industry 4.0
  • Big data

    Big data: at this point there is more than 4.7 zettabytes of data circulating around the globe. It will double in just 18 months. And vast majority of that is never utilized, never used for something useful. Imagine what kind of isnights , what kind of valuable information you can get from a world that core essence to gather bits of information and act on it.

  • Analytics

    Analytics: the amount of data circulating in the world today is unprecedented. The sad thing about it is that we are not utilizing all of that data for a great cause. One of the most powerful human abilities is to connect and correlate unrelated data and find patterns and relations that can give us a deeper understanding of our world, of human or machine behavior helping push productivity and ultimately humanity forward.

  • Smart City
    and Infrastructure

    Information Security: from Taylor Swift to Edward Snowden the importance of infosec in our everyday lives became apparent and evident. Bad guys with black hats usually hurt bits, bytes and pixels so we usually dont care. Imagine what will happen when you move this into the real world, into our domain of existence. Securing this future hyper connected world is the first step, something that will make or break IoT.
