Product codes are set to change, and we’re calling on brands to have their say.
GS1, the global standards organisation, is launching a working group on a new standard called the ‘GS1 URI’. In their call to action, GS1 describe the twin objectives:
“The short-term goal of this work is to reduce the need for multiple codes on packs, while ensuring that we develop a glide path with industry toward a future where a single 2D barcode could serve the needs of …
Machine learning is to data scientists what mining automation is to gold diggers. That is to say, it is now profitable to extract gold from large piles of rubble and sand that were previously considered too expensive, or even impossible, to manually process.
Machine learning is ushering in a paradigm shift in the way software is designed and developed. Traditional software engineering is essentially coders writing step by step how a machine is supposed to …
As we embark on 2018, I wanted to stop for a moment and take a look at some key disruptive technology trends emerging over the last 12 months. Here are 7 of the most significant which are certain to shape the year ahead.
2017 was a turning point for mass-scale consumer engagement via product packaging. This came about from 2 key developments:

The announcement at WWDC17 in June that the Camera app in the latest version of iOS, version 11, would be able to read QR codes out of the box got our attention. The main building blocks of the EVRYTHNG cloud, THNGs and Products, come with a QR code by default. This meant that soon over a billion devices would be able to interact with THNGs and products simply by reading a QR code. Apple also announced that it would open the iOS 11 NFC API and improvements to their Vision …
