“Liqid’s software disaggregates the server components in your datacenter—CPU, GPU, FPGA, NVMe, Optane, and NICs—and places them into resource pools. Our intuitive GUI, REST API, or CLI enables an end-user to create servers in seconds from those resource pools to deploy applications on-demand.
There’s no need to physically reconfigure servers, manually add additional devices, or overprovision expensive hardware to support heavy workloads.
Just point, click, and compose a bare-metal server on-the-fly.”

“At Clear we are shifting the paradigm in child mental health. We provide diagnostic assessments and clinical guidance to families via telehealth. Through decades of clinical work, we have found it tragic that only select professionals, who may, or may not be accessible or affordable; have the critical expertise many children need. Targeting a child’s precise needs saves precious time. Early intervention is known as the key to much of the positive outcomes we see in mental health. Bearing this in mind, we are compelled to provide parents with the information they need to help their children now.
Our clinicians use our proprietary and nuanced assessment tool to provide consultations and a customized roadmap for supporting your unique child.”

“Open Source Beehives began with a vision of people who are separated by geographic distance, but who confront the same common problems, working together to cooperatively develop innovative solutions for everyone’s benefit. Based on the success of projects like Arduino and Particle, we were inspired by the emerging potential for citizen-led scientific research and open data (CC0), owned by no one, but belonging to everyone, to give us all a straight answer when it comes to the crisis facing the honey bee.
We’ve developed the BuzzBox, hardware and smartphone app, as an open platform for monitoring beehives. We’re giving you tools for precision beekeeping, but we’ve also developed some powerful instruments for scientific research in the form of our hive health monitor.”
