IBM’s Augmented Reality App Exposes the Sugary Sins of Breakfast Cereal

As we become more and more concerned with what we’re putting into our bodies, the ritual of standing in the grocery store aisle, staring at the ingredients list of a packaged food item, has become all too familiar. But it doesn’t help when the ingredients are printed in a teeny-tiny, nearly illegible typeface.
To help combat eye-fatigue, IBM is developing an augmented reality shopping app that speeds up the process of determining whether a product meets a shopper’s ingredients criteria. And this unnamed app extends well beyond food.

IBM THINK Exhibit: a Review

If you’re like me, and in the habit of overconfidently wandering into  a new neighborhood without consulting a map, the lead-in to IBM’s centennial exhibit may be hard to spot at first. En route, there’s the pristine  square of Lincoln Center to get lost in, flanked by marbled and gilded  institutions of New York’s cultural elite.

IBM shows off Smarter Traveler traffic prediction tool

Traffic alerts on GPS devices may be old hat at this point, but there’s  obviously still plenty of room for improvement, and IBM now says it’s  managed to do just that with its new “Smarter Traveler” traffic  prediction tool. Developed with the help of UC Berkeley’s transportation  group and the California Department of Transportation, the tool relies  on predictive analytics software, GPS monitoring and sensors already on  the roads to not only offer alerts, but build a model of each person’s  usual commuter route.
