Artificial Intelligence.

Last week Google introduced a delightful surprise with Eddystone. Why is this so exciting? It’s another step in the right direction for beacons. Eddystone is “platform agnostic” meaning it will allow us to seamlessly use Bluetooth beacon technology across iOS and Android. It will even enable us to better integrate beacon technology across iPhone user’s Google apps like Maps and Chrome. Estimote, whom we partner with, “announced support for Eddystone from day one” and Kontakt, another great beacon provider we use, supports Eddystone as well.
We’ve been road-tripping and storytelling and celebrating summer. Yet its also already over halfway through 2015 (we know, right?!). Summer is always good for embracing nostalgia. Where have we been? Where are we heading? With these questions in mind we revisited the Center for the Future of Museums TrendsWatch 2015 report this week. The report, released earlier this year, is one of the museum field’s greatest resources. It’s a fascinated touchstone for those of us imaging the future.
Today is a very exciting day at Cuseum. We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve joined Techstars.
With our time in the Techstars Boston program, our team, product, and vision will grow and strengthen beyond our wildest dreams.
