There are many areas of marketing technology that are considered “hot” right now.And yet MarketsandMarkets forecasts that the global event management software market alone is expected to grow from $5.10 billion in 2014 to $7.78 billion by 2019.Despite all the event creation, promotion, attendee check-in, and management solutions available — both at the low end and within the enterprise — many companies still run their respective seminars and conferences exactly as they used to decades ago.In B2B circles, the days of stapling business cards to manually completed “lead sheets” are still with us.Even now, with smartphones and tablets as prevalent as they are, double-entry of attendees is rife, and sales reps have no clue when an “important person” walks into the conference hall.Today, Attend wants to change that for good with the release of a new mobile app that augments its existing event management platform.

The Paris Agreement was implemented as a collaborative global response to climate change, with a goal of reducing emissions.It aims to keep the global temperature rise to just 1.5 C, which would significantly reduce the risks and the impacts associated with climate change.President Donald Trump later decided to pull the U.S. out of the agreement, describing the move as "a reassertion of America’s sovereignty".Temperatures are breaking records around the worldThe 21st century has seen the most temperature records broken in recorded history.Last year was the hottest year on record since 1880, according to NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), with average temperatures measuring 1.78 degrees Fahrenheit (0.99 degrees Celsius) warmer than the mid-20th century mean.

Photograph: Antti Aimo-Koivisto/AFP/Getty ImagesSoon, you ll be able to buy a Nokia again, 18 months after Microsoft quietly killed the name, seemingly for good.Meanwhile, the manufacturing, distribution and sales arms of Nokia have been bought by iPhone manufacturer Foxconn, which has also agreed to build the new Nokia phone for HMD.The chief executive of HMD global, Arto Nummela, said: We will be completely focused on creating a unified range of Nokia-branded mobile phones and tablets, which we know will resonate with consumers.After the dust settles, HMD will be running the Nokia brand with Foxconn as an exclusive licensee.This agreement will give HMD full operational control of sales, marketing and distribution of Nokia-branded mobile phones and tablets, with exclusive access to the pre-eminent global sales and distribution network to be acquired from Microsoft by FIH, access to FIH s world-leading device manufacturing, supply chain and engineering capabilities, and to its growing suite of proprietary mobile technologies and components.In September 2013, Microsoft announced it would buy Nokia s mobile phone business for €5.4bn £4.2bn .
We looked at the big picture and distilled the 2016 Exponential Manufacturing conference into the four big themes we saw emerge during the event.Dale Doughtry, CEO and founder of Maker MediaCrowdfunding platforms are fueling the entry of these low-cost machines, like the Makerarm, which raised nearly half a million dollars on Kickstarter, and is the first complete digital fabrication robotic arm that mounts to a desktop.Robotics expert and director of Columbia University s Creative Machine Labs, Hod Lipson, projected how these advances in AI and robotics will converge to create fully resilient and adaptive cloud-connected factories in the future.Shree Bose took this route with Piper, a computer kit for kids to learn engineering through the game Minecraft and the grand prize winner of Google s Global Science Fair.Bose said she only built one scrappy prototype of Piper before beginning the Kickstarter campaign.Hagel said the economy is splitting into two parts—products and services are fragmenting into smaller and smaller pieces, while the platforms knitting them together are getting bigger.
Fujitsu has launched a new global campaign in an effort to demonstrate how its products and services can help harness the power of data.Using the tagline Shaping tomorrow with you , the campaign features an online film showcasing different industries implementing Fujitsu technology.Interestingly, the film was shot live, in-camera and released without any post-production.To achieve this, the film s creators mcgarrybowen and Found Studio used 3D projection mapping and holographic technologies to transform a white set into a series of live-action scenarios.Jane Briers, creative director at mcgarrybowen London, said: "We had a real opportunity to make the medium of projections part of the message itself, and bring to life the theme of 'digital transformation' in a way that had never been attempted before.
The updated app was quietly pushed live yesterday, and Google has now officially confirmed that Android Pay is available for anyone in the U.K., assuming they have a compatible NFC-enabled device.Similar to Apple Pay, Android Pay lets users purchase goods in physical retail stores by associating their MasterCard or Visa card with their device and swiping their phone against a contactless terminal at the point of sale.It can also be used to pay for things within third-party apps, including those by JD Sports, Deliveroo, Zara, Kickstarter, Airbnb, and YPlan.Crucially, Android Pay can also be used on London s public transport network, including the Tube and buses.The Internet giant launched its Apple Pay competitor last May, but so far, the feature has only been available in the U.S. Google did confirm back in March, however, that Android Pay would be landing in the U.K. some time in the next few months.The company has now confirmed that it will be launching in Australia and Singapore soon, with more countries added to the mix in the coming months.So it sounds as though the U.K. is serving as the launchpad for a major global rollout across 2016.Google had previously confirmed that eight banks would be on board for launch — Bank of Scotland, First Direct, Halifax, HSBC, Lloyds Bank, M Bank, MBNA, and Nationwide Building Society, though it did note that more would be added.Barclays was also slow to embrace Apple Pay, which has been available in the U.K. since last summer.
Microsoft has announced an agreement to sell its feature-phone business to FIH Mobile, a subsidiary of Taiwan-based electronics giant Foxconn, and another entity called HMD Global, Oy for around $350 million.HMD Global was founded out of Finland in 2015, and initially it looked like it was a business vehicle of sorts set up to help facilitate the Microsoft transaction — Finland, if you remember, is home to Nokia, the former mobile phone giant that sold its core hardware assets to Microsoft two years back.Today marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the Nokia brand in an industry where Nokia remains a truly iconic name, said Ramzi Haidamus, president of Nokia Technologies.So while Nokia still harbors ambitions to be a big mobile brand, it will have to rely on others much more than it once did — you may remember the company launched an Android-powered tablet in China back in 2014, well, that was under a similar arrangement as to what it will be doing now moving forward.This is where HMD Global comes into play — it s a new private company seemingly founded under Nokia s volition to build a new wave of mobile devices, replete with the Nokia brand.The venture is actually being run by CEO Arto Nummela, formerly of Nokia and the head of Microsoft s Mobile Devices business in Greater Asia, Middle East, and Africa, as well as Microsoft s soon-to-be-sold feature phones business.Nummela will be aided by President Florian Seiche, who currently serves as senior vice president for Europe sales and marketing at Microsoft Mobile.We don t yet know what these devices will look like, but we do know that HMD plans to invest around $500 million over the next three years to support the marketing of Nokia-branded devices, which HMD says will be funded via its investors and profits from the acquired feature phone business.
Shares of the small tech company MGT Capital Investments were up more than 37% on Tuesday at $4.08 per share.With over 108 million shares traded, it was the most active stock, ahead of Bank of America.Tuesday was another day in a stream of strong upward moves for the stock after the company announced on May 9 that it was naming John McAfee, founder of antivirus firm McAfee Security, as CEO and re-branding the firm John McAfee Global Technologies Inc.The surge followed the McAfee announcement, which included a sudden shift in the business from online gaming to cybersecurity.MGT acquired D-Vasive, a company that produces software that protects cellphones, on May 9.Before the shift, the company focused on online games such as slots simulator SlotChamp and had a 10% stake in daily fantasy site DraftDay.com.The firm had no holdings regarding cybersecurity before the acquisition, according to its most recent annual filing.Here's what we know about the abrupt pivot so far:September 8, 2015: MGT sells all but 11% of its stake in DraftDay.com, according to its annual report.April 14: After delaying its annual report from March 31, MGT files its report, saying it has $359,000 in cash on hand.The report does say that following the sale of DraftDay, the firm is "considering all methods to create value for shareholders, including potential mergers, spin-offs, distributions and other strategic actions.Brauser has been sued numerous times for fraud involving small, publicly listed firms, though some of those allegations have been dismissed.The most recent was dismissed in September 2015, for the company IDI Inc. Brauser was also CEO of an email-marketing company, Naviant, which was acquired and eventually sued by credit agency Equifax after the firm accused the shareholder sellers of fraud.According to that filing, Silverman and his firm no longer have any representation on the board.May 9: McAfee is named chairman and CEO, and the company buys Wyoming-based cybersecurity firm D-Vasive for $300,000 in cash and 4,760,000 in shares of MGT.

Now, six years later, the company has unveiled the fruits of that labor: a brand-new website for their global online presence at global.canon.The move will likely confuse some people, given that the .com TLD remains the most popular and commonly used TLD, and the fact that consumers will likely still default to canon.com when trying to navigate to the corporation s online presence.But the move sets Canon apart, being one of only a few corporations with one of these new branded TLDs others include Barclays bank and automaker BMW , as well as allowing them an SEO and security benefit to sites they host on it.Canon s old .com address will redirect to the global.canon address, which will either limit the number of consumers thrown off by the new URL, or cause greater confusion.It will be interesting to see if more corporations follow suit and move their websites over to branded TLDs.It could also make the process of finding the company website you are looking for that much more complicated, so the jury is still out on whether this is a good direction.
The system can process 90 million instructions per second at less than 40 watts.That means the system uses less power than Nvidia s competing Drive PX2 computer, which consumes nearly 250 watts, according to CNET s Road Show blog.The system first started shipping in September of last year, and is now widely available to the whole automotive industry.Next level computers like the BlueBox and Nvidia s Drive PX2 provide far more computing power than ADAS processors, so they can process mountains of data from a large number of sensors in real time for instant decision-making.The introduction of this computer is a major step on the road to getting self-driving cars all over the road, which could happen sooner rather than later.John Greenough, senior research analyst for BI Intelligence, has compiled a detailed report on self-driving cars that examines the major strides automakers and tech companies have made to overcome the barriers currently preventing fully autonomous cars from hitting the market.Further, the report examines global survey results showing where fully autonomous cars are highly desired.Here are some key takeaways from the report:Three barriers have been preventing fully autonomous cars from hitting the road: 1 high technological component prices; 2 varying degrees of consumer trust in the technology; and 3 relatively nonexistent regulations.California's regulations stipulate that a fully autonomous car must have a driver behind the wheel at all times, discouraging Google's and Uber's idea of a driverless taxi system.In full, the report:Examines consumer trust in fully autonomous vehiclesIdentifies technological advancements that have been made in the industryAnalyzes the cost of fully autonomous technology and identifies how cost is being reducedExplains the current regulations surrounding fully autonomous carsTo get your copy of this invaluable guide, choose one of these options:Subscribe to an ALL-ACCESS Membership with BI Intelligence and gain immediate access to this report AND over 100 other expertly researched deep-dive reports, subscriptions to all of our daily newsletters, and much more.But however you decide to acquire this report, you ve given yourself a powerful advantage in your understanding of the emerging world of self-driving cars.
Nokia sold off their mobile and devices division back in 2014, in hopes that the brand would live on under Microsoft's care.Unfortunately, Microsoft hasn't exactly been putting a strong focus on their Windows phones, which means that the Nokia brand has been in a slump for quite some time.Today, it was announced that Microsoft would be selling the rights to the Nokia brand to HMD global for the next ten years.HMD is brand new Finnish company that appears to have been founded with the purpose of creating Nokia-branded phones and tablets.Additionally, Microsoft announced that they were selling the remainder of their feature phone business assets to FIH Mobile Limited a subsidiary of Foxconn .HMD and FIH will be working together to create Nokia-branded Android phones and tablets over the next ten years.

Berkshire Hathaway Inc. s newfound love for Apple Inc. comes as the rest of Wall Street is souring on the technology stocks.Hedge funds and large speculators raised short positions in the Nasdaq 100 Index e-mini futures for a third straight week, pushing net bearish bets to the highest level in five years, according to data from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.The divergence highlights the age-old challenge: do you wait for prospects to improve before buying, or jump in when things look bleak?Sentiment toward technology has worsened as disappointing earnings from International Business Machines Corp. to Microsoft Corp. and Alphabet Inc. fueled skepticism that the industry will quickly restore growth amid sluggish global demand and rising competition.Earnings in the current period will fall 5.9 percent, worse than any S 500 groups except for commodity producers, analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg show.While Buffett has historically avoided technology stocks, Berkshire has nibbled on the industry in recent years, adding stakes in IBM and Visa Inc.The firm held 9.81 million Apple shares, or $1.07 billion worth, as of March 31, according to a regulatory filing from the billionaire s Omaha, Nebraska-based company.Even after a 3.7 percent bounce triggered by Berkshire s disclosure of a stake Monday, Apple shares are still down 30 percent from the all-time high reached in 2015.At 10.5 times reported profit, Apple is at valued at about half the multiple of the S 500.Other tech stocks are nowhere near as cheap even after trailing the market by the most at this time of year since 2002.
Unlike the Greek sorceress it resembles in name, Midea Group 000333 -2.06 % doesn t have to be a prophet to realize it can no longer rest on cheap Chinese labor and low-end technology.That s why this top Chinese appliance manufacturer is willing to splash out for a German robotics giant.The offer looks unsolicited, suggesting Midea wants Kuka more than the other way around.Part of this is the natural result of China s rising wages in the past five years, especially in well-off Guangdong province, where Midea is based.That s richer than the 28 times a basket of 13 global peers trade at, and far richer than Midea s own 10 times.For investors who can access Midea s mainland Chinese shares, the stock could rally as Midea signals its intent to improve its technology.
