Overall, companies are propelling a wide range of industries forward by creating devices and apps that use “Big Data” to solve real problems faster and smarter for a more discerning customer.
Need a replacement part but not sure of the name or part number? Partpic (Enterprise and Smart Data) provides a simple way to find and order parts by scrubbing their database of images to find exactly what you’re looking for.
Monitoring your active child has never been easier using a one-button wristphone created by Tinitell(Wearable) that includes a GPS-tracker to give parents piece of mind when their children are out of sight.
Finally, for farmers who are frustrated by undetected problems that can cost thousands of dollars in lost revenue, SLANTRANGE (Innovative World) offers a system that collects actionable data that produces a more efficient, clean farming experience.
Hats off to the Grand Prize winners for a job well done. And, congratulations to all participants, finalists, judges, emcees, organizers, and audience members for two exciting days at SXSW Accelerator.
