Snap acquires geofilter patent for $7.7 million

Snap has acquired “Geofilters,” or photo filters based on location, patent from photo-sharing platform Mobli for $7.7 million, a media report said.

According to a report in Tech Crunch on Friday, Israeli entrepreneur and investor Moshe Hogeg, who co-founded Mobli – an Instagram competitor launched six years ago, patented the idea of Geo-photo filters in 2012, after launching it the previous year.

This is believed to be the highest amount paid for a patent from the Israeli tech industry. The earlier most expensive patent from Israel was a $2.7 million one to do with Google Maps.

The report said that Mobli first spoke to Facebook about selling the patent and the social media giant “100 per cent wanted it”.

According to Snap’s S-1 filing for its IPO, of the $400 million in revenues the company has, $360 million is made by selling “Geofilters”, which advertisers can buy.

Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management Kerala and IBM India Develop Real-Time Water Quality Measurement System on IBM Watson IoT Platform

Kerala, India & Armonk, NY, U.S – 21 Apr 2017: Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management – Kerala (IIITM-K) and IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced the development of a real-time water quality management system – ‘Swatchpaani’. The system, powered by IBM’s Watson Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, will continuously monitorwater quality and measure temperature, pH and the presence of various metal/non-metal substancesin the water,to ensure standard levels are not exceeded as prescribed by agencies.

The proposed solution will compose of Libelium, signal conditioning boards and sensors and Raspberry Pi for connecting these to IBM Bluemix Cloud services and Watson IoTplatform for device and sensor data management, analysis and visualization. The system will support data analysis in real-time and trigger alerts if there are anomalies in the water samples. The project will also incorporate a pre-screening mechanism to test the water quality of mobile water distribution systems.”The conventional method of testing water quality is often inaccessible and time consuming. In this context, Swatchpaani offers a convenient, mobile, quick and cost effective solution for the pre-screening of water samples. The extensive lab tests may be mandated only when the pre-screening signals a potential threat.” said Dr. Asharaf, Principal Investigator, Swatchpaani Project, Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management – Kerala (IIITM-K).

“The IBM Watson IoT platform is an easy-to-use, secure and scalable solution which provides seamless integration with various IoT devices to build specialized, integrated solutions to solve industry and business challenges. The Swachpaani project is one such result on Watson IoT that demonstrates the impact technology can bring to the life of an individual. IBM India continues to work with academia to create useful and meaningful innovation based on Watson technologies,”said DevkantAggarwal, Manager, University Relations, IBM India.

About IIITM-K:

Edge Testing opens second UK Digital Test Hub

Edge Testing Solutions, one of the UK’s fastest growing and largest independent software testing companies, has opened a second Digital Test Hub to expand its footprint in the Midlands and reverse the trend towards offshored testing provision.

Edge launched the Digital Test Hub concept in 2013 in Glasgow, Scotland. Now employing 250, it was founded to meet requirements for a low cost, on demand test service supplied within the UK. The Digital Test Hub operates as a challenger to the offshore model as it can be accessed easily by organisations looking for a remote testing service for their in-house applications and back office systems, within the same time zone and an immediate understanding of business culture and communication norms.

The decision to select Birmingham was driven by customer demand for quick access to on-site support when necessary, and also by the increasing number of large businesses moving to the Midlands – for example, HSBC is moving 1,000 head office roles to Birmingham by 1 January 2019 and American owned Advanced Computer Software Group is creating approximately 400 jobs in new Birmingham site. Also, home to more start-ups than any other UK regional city, 17,473 new Birmingham companies registered in 2016.

Edge’s second Digital Test Hub facility in Birmingham aims to create over 60 new jobs in the area over the next two years, from experienced Test Managers and Test Analysts to Trainee Software Testers. Edge has already been operating out of Birmingham for over four years, working for several banks, telcos and financial services providers. The company’s clients include the Big Lottery Fund, IRESS and the Student Loans Company.

The Digital Test Hub is cloud based, and is staffed by dedicated service managers. It is available as a standalone service or part of Edge’s Managed Testing Service. Services include device and compatibility testing, website monitoring, website performance testing, usability and accessibility testing, functional testing, regression testing and test automation.

To reduce the need for UK organisations to offshore testing, Edge is addressing the shortage of testing skills in the UK, by building up a pool of trained testers through its Edge Academy. All Edge employees are required to pass the testing certification ISTQB within the first six months of employment, and there is also further in-house training available.

Brian Ferrie, CEO, said: “The Digital Test Hub model has proven a huge hit with our customers. The ability to have a low cost, on demand, remote service without the challenges of going offshore has been a real winner. We have listened to our customers who have said that the service would be even better if there was the flexibility for the team to be on-site during critical project stages. We chose Birmingham as our second Hub as it’s easily accessible for our customers across our southern business, is a vibrant tech hub and gives us access to some fantastic local talent at both experienced and graduate levels”.
Nicola Hewitt, Commercial Director of inward investment agency Business Birmingham, said:

“It is great news to hear Edge Testing will be expanding its operations in Birmingham. The city has become a thriving hotspot for the IT and digital sectors and is the number one location in the UK for business growth rates. Many business – just like Edge – are investing in Birmingham, citing the region’s talent pool and central location as key draws”.

Award winning Edge Testing is typically engaged when organisations are implementing a new system or making significant changes to an existing system, to ensure systems are fast, secure, available and work as expected in an increasingly complex and distributed digital age.
The ISO accredited company, which is listed on the Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100, has quickly built up an excellent reputation with an enviable client list across financial services, telecommunications and media, utilities, retail and the public sector.
