It’s estimated that around 35 percent of harvested fish and seafood is lost or wasted somewhere between when it’s caught and when it appears on your plate. As part of our Daydream Impact program, the World Wildlife Fund and Condition One brought this journey to life through a virtual reality documentary showing how fish get from Ocean to Plate. Short of actually being on a fishing boat or in a processing plant, there’s no better way to understand the fishing industry supply chain and its impact on our oceans. Check out the video below, or by us... Read More »

Submissions for this year’s Science Fair will open in September 2018.

Focused on the problem-solving process, these materials are flexible enough to adapt to virtually any teaching style, subject or grade. These resou... Read More »

As digital technologies continue to evolve at an increasingly faster rate, it’s predicted that 21 million new jobs will be created in the next 10 to 15 years. CS has a crucial role in equipping students with the technical skills to embrace these new opportunities and career choices. CS education includes design, data, algorithms and the study of computer systems, while also promoting crucial skills such as collaboration, problem-solving and creativity. We believe every student should have the opportunity to learn CS; with that comes the respons... Read More »

Android P: More power for enterprises

fxdfh (1)

Simplifying the work profile experience Android P improves the look and performance of the work profile. Work apps now have a dedicated tab in the app launcher, making them more visible and eliminating duplication and clutter. Work apps also have an updated blue briefcase badge that better matches Android’s modern design patterns. While we want to make it easier to get to your work apps, we also think it’s important for your phone to help you disconnect when you’re away from work. So in Android P, we added a switch to turn off work mode rig... Read More »

According to Ashlee, the journey has been incredibly rewarding—but it hasn’t been easy. The two have shared a bed most of this year in order to save money for their business. But last week, Ashlee and Kerry took a huge step forward when they secured a $100,000 investment from AOL Founder Steve Case during the Rise of the Rest pitch competition in Birmingham. They plan to use their new funding to grow their team and build out their technology. Most certainly, they’ll be buying a new bed. Since 2014, the Rise of the Rest tour has travele... Read More »

Here are some of the ways businesses have been using Tour Creator through our beta program: Moinian Group, a real estate company, is providing previews of their luxury apartments: “We’re always looking for easy ways for people to explore our ...

Last year, we introduced Lens in Google Photos and the Assistant. People are already using it to answer all kinds of questions—especially when they’re difficult to describe in a search box, like “what type of dog is that?” or “what’s that building called?” Today at Google I/O, we announced that Lens will now be available directly in the camera app on supported devices from LGE, Motorola, Xiaomi, Sony Mobile, HMD/Nokia, Transsion, TCL, OnePlus, BQ, Asus, and of course the Google Pixel. We also announced three updates that enable Lens to answe... Read More »
