THE SMARTEST THINGS BREWING IN GOOGLE LABS
GOOGLE GENOMICS: Run by Google X, it enables scientists and researchers to store, search and run virtual simulations on vast amount of data — namely, millions of genomes THE LIFTWARE SPOON: PROJECT SOLI: Project Soli by ATAP (Advanced Technology and Projects) uses radar to detect minute hand and finger movements, which could then be used to manipulate real devices, or even allow an unprecedented level of interaction in virtual environments GOOGLE DEEPMIND: What separates DeepMind from other AI systems is the way its algorithms are built. Instead of focusing on a single task, DeepMind’s algorithms are general, allowing it to perform well across a variety of tasks straight out of the box PROJECT LOON: These helium-filled balloons are designed by Google X to reach an altitude of almost 13 miles. Once airborne, the balloons provide a cost-effective way to beam Internet service to places that lack it.
Enables patients who suffer from tremors (such as Parkinson’s) to eat food without spills. Lift Lab, which designed the Liftware spoon, was acquired by Google in 2014 and is now owned by Alphabet under the Google X subsidiary
