Innovation is a word that is tossed around too often. Companies talk about being innovative and cutting edge,; but many struggle to make innovation a part of their everyday business. With today s digital economy perpetuating the notion of disrupt or die, simply saying you are innovative or lumping innovation efforts in with R amp;D and product development are not enough. To survive and thrive, all organizations need an innovation program inspiring every employee company wide with sufficient budget, mentors and resources.The challenge is that there is no such thing as innovation. It is a mindset and an attitude. It s learning to think and act more like an entrepreneur in a startup. More specifically, it s about people coming together, sharing their most passionate ideas and collaborating with partners inside and outside of an organization to monetize new, transformational solutions, business models and value propositions. For that reason, it should not be not a one and done exercise nor an annual event. Rather, innovation must be continuously woven into the everyday fiber of a business it needs to be a living, breathing part of an organization s culture, starting at the top.

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings believes every country needs a Jio. ”Reliance Jio has been a transformational network in India and has brought down data cost massively, ” Hastings told The Economic Times newspaper in an interview. ”We hope someone would do a Reliance Jio in every other country. ”Hastings 's admiration is not surprising as the Mukesh Ambani owned company has played a vital role in India 's recent internet boom. Since its launch in September 2016, Jio has triggered a tariff war, offering months of free data and charging dirt cheap rates. No wonder it has amassed 160 million subscribers. In the process, it has made access to the internet far more affordable in the country, giving a fillip to all online businesses, from social media sites like Facebook to e commerce to online video streaming.
Despite being the most transformational technology of this generation, public cloud computing and all of its inherent flexibility still has not surpassed the 50 percent threshold for adoption within the enterprise space, according to analyst house Forrester, which also pegs the market for global public cloud services to reach $236 billion by 2020.In its cloud predictions report for 2018 the analysts write: "Cloud's impact has been global, yet fewer than half of all enterprises use a public cloud platform. In 2018, we'll cross the significant 50 percent adoption milestone, and cloud applications, platforms, and services will continue to radically change the way enterprises compete for customers."
The partners say that their Car eWallet will act as a digital assistant, enabling secure and convenient payments on the go. The system is likely to become increasingly useful as driverless cars become a reality, providing a way to independently authorise payments without the owner or user having to be active themselves.Veronica Lange, head of innovation at UBS says: In today's digitally connected world, no single institution works in isolation. As a leading financial services institution we pursue the development of a new platform that will transform how transactions and payments between vehicles and other machines can be done efficiently and safely. ”In the future, the platform, provided through the IBM Cloud and driven by Hyperledger Fabric 1.0, will not only be used for parking and tolls, but also car sharing, electric charging and delivery services.Dirk Wollschlaeger, GM, IBM Global automotive, aerospace and defence, says: "The world of mobility is quickly evolving with self driving vehicles, electric cars and new mobility services having quickly evolved from visionary concepts into reality. Time of great change requires transformational solutions. "Together with UBS and ZF, we are engineering a new mobility platform to redefine how, when and where traditional transactions occur. "Good move by UBS. Some one @UBS has taken famous comment seriously " Banking is necessary: Banks are not ".
"This topic has drawn lots of interest from the private sector recently, including start ups Neuralink and Kernel," says Shepard, who is the Lau Family Professor of Electrical Engineering, and professor of biomedical engineering at Columbia Engineering. "If we are successful, the tiny size and massive scale of this device could provide the opportunity for transformational interfaces to the brain, including direct interfaces to the visual cortex that would allow patients who have lost their sight to discriminate complex patterns at unprecedented resolutions. This is a highly ambitious project for Columbia, indeed for all of us, and we are very excited to address such a challenging issue."Shepard's project is in DARPA's Neural Engineering System Design (NESD) program, part of the larger Federal government wide BRAIN Initiative. NESD is aimed at developing an implantable neural interface that can provide unprecedented signal resolution and data transfer bandwidth between the brain and the digital world. Shepard's team includes researchers from leading institutions such as Baylor College of Medicine, California Institute of Technology, Duke University, New York University, Northwestern, and Medtronic. At Columbia, the project includes Rafael Yuste (professor of biological sciences and neuroscience, Arts Sciences), Liam Paninski (professor of statistics and neuroscience, Arts Sciences), and Luca Carloni (professor of computer science, Engineering). The team is focused on meeting the NESD goals of designing an implantable brain interface device at the scale of one million channels to enable recording and stimulation from the sensory cortex. In addition, they plan to apply for regulatory approval to begin experiments in humans at the end of the four year program.
