GfK will nurture auto tech innovation in hackathon competition for undergraduates

Student teams will combine marketing, data science as they vie for $5,000 prize

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2019 / — According to GfK AutoMobility, more than half of those who intend to buy a new car say that in-vehicle technology could affect their selection. To give aspiring data scientists and marketer researchers hands-on experience with this fast-growing category, GfK is challenging undergraduate teams to create business plans – from design to marketing – for their own “smart car” innovations.

In the second NextGen Data Science Hackathon Competition, GfK will award a $5,000 grand prize to the team that develops and presents the most convincing plan for a new in-car device or service.

Watch a video about the NextGen Data Science Hackathon Competition

During a 10-day hackathon in March, GfK will give students access to data sets from a variety of sources, encouraging the teams to use these and other insights in creating 5-minute presentations for their ideas. GfK insights experts, as well as marketers and researchers from client companies, will act as mentors and, ultimately, select the winning team.

Interested students should contact

Before the hackathon, students — working individually or in groups – can collect insights to focus their projects and provide background for their final presentations. Undergraduate students in any major can take part in the event, working from any location.

“Smart technology has revolutionized the auto marketplace – from in-car entertainment systems to self-driving vehicles – and we know there is much more to come,” said Tom Neri, Commercial Director at GfK North America and leader of its AutoMobility research team. “The potential for breakthrough innovation is still huge, and we know that the NextGen teams will bring a powerful curiosity and creativity to this category. We also see this as a valuable opportunity to connect today’s product designers and marketers with the next wave of innovative thinkers.”

The NextGen Competition began in 2011 with a focus on traditional research methods and goals. Over the years, the contest has evolved to reflect the changing toolkit and role of market researchers and data scientists. In 2018, GfK made a hackathon the centerpiece of the competition, with a team from the College of Staten Island (City University of New York) taking first place for its innovative development and marketing plan for a new smart speaker.

Neurotech Startup Potential X Launches FocusBuds, The World's First Productivity Boosting Smart Earbuds

Potential X launches the world’s first pair of productivity boosting earbuds that actively helps users focus, posing a threat to Apple’s latest product

PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2019 / — Apple's AirPods have been a huge success within the fast-growing wearables market, with the original AirPods being their second-best-selling product to date. Given how much demand has increased, the tech giant wants to maintain the momentum with their latest AirPods Pro, which includes active noise cancellation.

This shouldn't be surprising – active noise-cancelling headphones remain a strong contender in the market against Apple's AirPods, most notably from Apple-owned Beats, but also names like Bose, Sony, and Sennheiser. Yet Apple will also be using 'focus mode' as a means to unlocking the next 'iPhone moment' with the AirPods Pro, something the Apple Watch didn't quite succeed with.

Interestingly, Potential X, with offices in both Palo Alto and London appears to be taking the trend a step further in the wearables market with it’s latest product, the FocusBuds. These smart earbuds from the Neurotech Startup are set to be Apple Airpod Killers.

These earphones do not feature active noise-cancellation, although they do include passive noise isolation. Instead, the differentiating factor behind these Bluetooth earphones is that they feature embedded sensors capable of capturing EEG activity emanating naturally from the brain.

Using their patent-pending proprietary software, the FocusBuds is capable of detecting and tracking the user's level of focus over a given period of time using approximately 400 metrics derived from EEG data. These insights are then displayed in real-time in the company's application and relayed back to the user via audio cues.

The earbuds themselves use medical-grade silver chloride sensors to acquire sufficiently high-quality signals, which are then processed by the company's proprietary machine learning algorithms to predict how focused the user is. Although EEG data is comparatively noisy compared to other neurological data, it is also non-invasive. Advances in machine learning are claimed to compensate for the noisiness in the data, as well as giving better real-world accuracy in predicting a user's level of focus than traditional methods.

Extended usage of these wearables reinforces the users’ focused states of mind, a process termed EEG neurofeedback. Additional insights from the mobile software are used to indicate when and where the user is most focused. These augmented personal insights credibly back the company's claim that it offers a 'true focus mode' in contrast to Apple's AirPods Pro.

While EEG Neurofeedback technology is not new, Potential X’s key innovation is making it accessible by putting it into a wearable device. It would appear that the wearables market looks set to be profoundly changed by these futuristic earbuds.

To learn more about these earbuds, check out the company's launch page on the crowdfunding site Indiegogo.

The Potential FocusBuds are now available on Indiegogo at over 35% off their retail prices.

Alpaca Accelerates Its Community-Driven Approach to Create a Developer-First Investing Infrastructure

Passiv building a robo-advisor product with Alpaca API proves our unique community-driven approach and brings us one step closer to our vision of creating a developer-first investing infrastructure”

— Yoshi Yokokawa

SAN MATEO, CA, USA, October 30, 2019 / — Alpaca ( is announcing its partnership with Passiv (, an index investing platform that helps self-directed investors build and manage personalized portfolios at online brokerages. Alpaca’s users can now build their own personalized indexes or replicate their robo-advisor portfolios and invest at the commission-free API-first stockbroker without having to write a line of code. Securities are offered through Alpaca Securities LLC, a FINRA registered broker-dealer.

“We’re very excited to see Passiv building a robo-advisor product on top of our platform. This proves Alpaca’s community-driven approach and brings us one step closer to our vision of creating a developer-first investing infrastructure,” added Yoshi Yokokawa CEO, Alpaca. “We plan on working closely with Passiv in the future to further support their feature development on Alpaca’s infrastructure.”

With major US online stock brokerages like Charles Schwab, TD Ameritrade, E*Trade, and Fidelity dropping their trading commissions, it raises the question of how these brokerages plan to differentiate themselves. Lee Young believes that having open APIs and faster processes for vetting and partnering with companies like his could be one part of the solution.

“It’s really hard to get access to online brokers’ APIs and not all APIs are of good quality. In my opinion, brokerages will need to get better at partnering, improving their APIs and also curating the right tools for users if they want to compete,” said Lee Young. “Our developers were elated by how easy it was to integrate with Alpaca. Personally, I was impressed by their responsiveness and openness to making significant improvements to their API to accommodate us.”

Traditionally, investing at online brokerages required their customers to use spreadsheets to help them manage their investments and go through a manual process when buying and selling shares. In the case of Alpaca’s users, they use self-coded algorithms to help them manage their investments. Now Alpaca’s users who don’t want to write code can safely link their accounts to Passiv via Alpaca’s API, build their portfolios and use Passiv’s software to help them keep their portfolio balanced.
