Google patents new method to match face with voices

Facial recognition is becoming the next big form of biometric authentication on mobile devices and applications. Google has come up with a new method to match faces and voices that includes new ability to recognize and match multiple faces and voices in a video. The search giant has filed patent for the same with the World Intellectual Property Organization. The patent application describes that the method focuses on determining when somebody is talking and then matching their voice to their face. This approach gives the machine ability to hear and understand individual voices even in noisy environments by simply looking for a face that matches the sound pattern corresponding to a pre-defined voice profile. The p...

By - Shradha Gupta,Healthcare Investments, Unitus VenturesIn healthcare startups, patents can act as the core assets at least specifically in the early years of the business lifecycle. Globally, medtech is one of the most active sectors from the patent filing perspective. In India, however, patents in medtech accounted for just 2% of the total patents filed over the last 5 years. And out of these, 80% were filed by foreign companies or institutes. That being said, a patent filing for medtech in India is on the rise; in fact, in last decade or so, the number of patents filed within this sub-sector has almost doubled. We believe that the growing momentum in medtech has the potential to seriously disrupt the market and it’s critical that this indigenous innovation successfully navigates t

Can Sunscreen Really Repair Your DNA?

Can Sunscreen Really Repair Your DNA?

Having grown up in Tucson, Arizona, one of the sunniest cities in the world, I consider myself well-versed in the carcinogenic threat of UV exposure, the skin-sparing sanctity of shade, and the redeeming qualities of the sartorial atrocity that is the broad-brimmed hat. I am also a compulsive sunscreensplainer. ”Well, actually, SPF 30 lotions block about 97 percent of UVB rays—4 percent more than SPF 15 and just 2 percent less than SPF 50” is the kind of #sunscreenfact I've been rattling off, insufferably, since the age of seven.So I was surprised, on a recent trip to Florida, to learn something new about sunscreen: Recently, several products have become available that claim to repair DNA damage inflicted by UVB rays. That's … a bold assertion. To protect your genetic code from the stru
