Concorde, the most popular supersonic passenger jet took its last flight in October 24, 2003. No supersonic passenger jets have taken a flight since then. It was also very expensive to travel on supersonic jets. It looks like a dream to again see supersonic passenger flights up in the air. And even if this dream comes true, would it be ever possible to make supersonic flight affordable for most of the air passengers?
Meet Boom, latest portfolio startup of Zillionize, which is building the fastest passenger airplane ever. Yes, it’s even faster (1451 MPH) than Concorde (1431 MPH) and the best part is, with more speed, it’s still 30% more fuel efficient than Concorde. Because of Boom’s fuel efficiency, it would also lower costs bringing its fares to same as business class. With Boom, business class passengers would be able to save lots of time. For instance, travel from San Francisco to Tokyo will be reduced from 11 hours to 4.5. Boom will fly next year in 2017.
When we think about search, we mostly think about Google search engine which helps us to find required information on the web using specific keywords. We use these keywords to find relevant webpages, documents, images, videos etc. How about a Google for audio that helps you to locate the moment a keyword or phrase is mentioned in your audio? Meet DeepGram who is building a Google for Audio!
Zillionize is glad to announce that it has also added DeepGram to its growing list of portfolio startups. DeepGram, using artificial intelligence, allows you to spot keywords and get insights in audio. There are lots of speech-to-text engines available in the market but DeepGram’s technology is far more accurate as compared to them. DeepGram can be useful for many industries including call centers where companies can build insight about their products, issues and competitors etc. from recorded audio to develop better business strategies and even for common users who can locate perfect audio/video clips using keywords spotting.
The major concern for enterprises has always been the security and privacy of their data. And since everything has gone to Cloud, this concern has grown even stronger because most of the apps enterprises use for their business operations, are hosted on public clouds. Many popular apps also provide on-premise versions to address data privacy concerns of businesses but running and maintaining private cloud servers for using those apps is also expensive. Meet Protonet that brings cost effective private cloud servers to businesses!
Zillionize is proud to announce about its new portfolio startup, Protonet – a magical box that brings the power of a secure private cloud server to your business.
