France to make waves at Oceanlogy International 2018

Catherine Ryall - 01-mars-2018 12:50:02
The French pavilion organised by Business France , the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy , will play host to 21 exhibitors at Oceanology International 2018 in London on stands J200, K200 and K300, in partnership with Pôle Mer Bretagne Atlantique and Pôle Mer Méditerranée. The maritime industry is the world’s second largest economic sector, currently worth $1.5 trillion to the global economy, a figure that is set to rise to $3 trillion in 2030 (OECD). Alongside more traditional sectors, new industrial sub-sectors will emerge over the coming decades. They will chiefly revolve around the technologies required to exploit resources, as well as activity monitoring at sea and maritime security of the areas in which they take place. France has a strong hand to play when it comes to capturing a significant share of these expanding markets.   The French companies in attendance at Oceanology are firmly positioned in these traditional industrial sectors, continually innovating to remain competitive on the global markets.   The seas and oceans are at the crossroads of every economic sector and are thus a key area of development. The sea meets many needs of both humanity and our societies’ lifestyles: food, the energy transition, health, minerals, transport and leisure. The development of maritime activities will also create new economic segments along our coastlines, which, along with growing coastal population densities, will translate into a new approach to coastal management and the interfaces between land and sea, one that will drive new areas of activity (floating port infrastructures, water production and treatment, etc.).  Oceanology International is the only event in Europe devoted to marine resource exploitation and its various sub-sectors. The French exhibitors are keen to meet key decision makers, seek out partners and showcase their innovative product and technologies to foreign businesses within the industry.

BONJOUR, the IoT Alarm with Personality

Laure Bidault des Chaumes - 28-juil.-2017 13:04:30
Holi announces BONJOUR, a sleek voice-controlled alarm that has the intuition of an AI device, anticipating and easing morning routine for the sleep-ly enamoured and slow to rise, and offering connectivity to IoT devices and services such as Nest, Spotify, Philips Hue, Sonos. BONJOUR is finalizing its development and has already seduced innovation experts and fans: - CES award 2017 - Over $880,000 raised on Kickstarter and Indiegogo with 6,200 backers - Accorhotels Vivatech Award 2017 Holi, a French design and innovation company, is unveiling BONJOUR, a smart, IoT alarm that upgrades the morning wake-up routine. BONJOUR is an AI driven alarm clock that combines sleek and elegant design, with an intuitive, easy and interactive UI. Through precise voice activation technology, wireless internet connectivity, app integration, AI intuition, and an easy-toread display, BONJOUR enhances your morning wake-up routine to go beyond the snooze button. With BONJOUR, you can wake up to your local weather, your favorite Spotify music, or your unique Philips Hue lighting configuration, all with voicecontrol activation and feedback. You set the conditions to which all of these services perform and interact with each other each morning while BONJOUR interprets each app’s information. With natural-conversational AI technology BONJOUR speaks and plans for the day ahead with you. The company has launched a Kickstarter campaign on October 25, 2016 and BONJOUR is available in Indiegogo InDemand since December, the 5th, 2016. Imagine what it would be like to wake up with BONJOUR. You could hear your favorite song, adjust the temperature in your room, and gently turn the lights up, calmly welcoming you to your day. But it’s not just mornings that can be enhanced; BONJOUR is well suited to just lounging around in bed, or for right before you go to sleep. All that is required to waken the potential of the device is the word “OK BONJOUR” “OK BONJOUR, wake my up at 7:00 A.M with Madonna only if it’s sunny.” “OK BONJOUR, what is the traffic like on the way to work?” “OK BONJOUR, wake me up one hour before my first meeting.” “OK BONJOUR, lower the lights and the temperature in my bedroom.” “OK BONJOUR, wake me up at 6:00 A.M on Sunday if the weather is good. If not, let me sleep in.” BONJOUR knows not all mornings are created equal. There are sunny days, get-stuck-in-traffic days, breakfast-fordinner days, and Saturdays. BONJOUR wants you to be ready for whatever surprises the morning has, with conditional wake-up commands and predictive, conversational responses. BONJOUR fashioned the familiar “if this, then that” idea into easy-to-use, conditional voice-activated responses to help you have the perfect morning. You will hear BONJOUR say: “I see that it is a beautiful day outside, wear something cool.” “If you leave now, it will take you only 25 minutes to get to work.” “Your garage door seems to be open. Do you want to check the security camera?” “Today is completely free in your calendar, you can afford to sleep in” “You didn’t walk much today, do you want to wake up tomorrow for a run?” BONJOUR combines modern design, vocal interaction and visual messaging to bring you a reimagined morning experience. BONJOUR is available in black and white. “At Holi, we have dedicated ourselves to improving sleep around the world,” says Grégoire Gérard the Creative Chairman for BONJOUR. “With a combined 50 years of experience, we have taken all of what we know about sleep and applied it to the least favorite, but most important part: waking up. In France we say ‘Faire la grasse matinée’, or to have a fat morning, but of course like most things, it’s sexier in French. Connected devices and design are in our DNA and we put all of our expertise and vision into imagining new solutions for better sleep and a more pleasant morning.” BONJOUR’s crowdfunding campaign can be found here : https://www.holi.io/en/our solutions/bonjour-ai-smart-alarmclock About Holi: Holi, the company behind BONJOUR, is a start-up that has already grown-up. Since its creation in 2012 and the launch of its first two products SLEEPCOMPANION and SMARTLAMP, the company dedicated itself to conceive innovative products to promote better sleep and great wake-up. To fulfill its mission, Holi combines a double expertise: iOT & sleep science. By gathering neuroscientists, data scientist, engineers, designers and developers, holi’s R&D department innovates to offer new solutions and create a new lifestyle where sleep empowers people and great wake-ups make great days.
