After an initial training phase is complete, a trained system can recognize 10,000 or more categories of objects and is robust to many different conditions such as lighting, shifts and viewpoint changes. A trained system has many uses: tagging photo libraries, searching through millions of images, or providing automatic quality control to name a few. All of these tasks can be performed several times a second, reducing slow and costly human interaction and enabling next generation intelligent applications.

From Leonardo's anatomic sketches to Frank Gehry's conceptual drawings to movie storyboards, the sketch is basic to exploring new ideas, creating new knowledge, and designing new products. But while computer technology has revolutionized text and photography, sketch has largely remained untouched, beyond the few additional capabilities (panning, zooming and transmitting) offered by existing software. Mental Canvas is a transformative software platform that bridges traditional drawing and 3D modeling, offering a novel way to develop, explore, and share visual ideas in 3D. Similar to what the word processor has done for text, or Photoshop has done for photography, Mental Canvas reimagines the sketch, imbuing it with entirely new capabilities, bringing it fully into the computer age.

TextPride’s goal is to bring premium, brand-centric content to mobile messaging by expanding the emoji concept to incorporate licensed brands. For example instead of sending a typical smiley face emoji, TextPride offers the ability for users to send a Notre Dame leprechaun or U.S. Army star. TextPride will provide cross platform, group messaging with a very well defined monetization model through these branded emoji. People desire to associate themselves with affinity groups and share this with others. This ability is lacking in mobile messaging, the primary way billions of people communicate. TextPride currently holds licenses with 76 NCAA schools, 24 Greek organizations, all 4 branches of the U.S. Military, and Chicago Blackhawks.
