The best source of innovation is with your staff!

IdeaSpies Enterprise

According to David Thodey AO, Chair CSIRO “the best source of innovation is with your staff – they know the business and how to improve it”.  Staff at all levels who are creative can contribute useful ideas. We all have choices about how much thought and time we put into something. When our ideas and suggestions are not adequately considered we just seek to contribute elsewhere. IdeaSpies Enterprise is a new, fun and effective idea capture tool that’s designed to encourage ideas from staff. It’s been successfully trialled by KPMG Greater Western Sydney and was launched last month. Introductory pricing for initial subscribers ends on June 30 2018. www.IdeaSpies.com/Enterprise

The World’s First IBO – Initial Bear Offering

The idea behind LOOP Upcycling is to turn corporate waste into wonder. We re-use old unwanted corporate uniforms to reduce landfill and remove an environmental challenge for big business. At the same time we create life-changing jobs for some of the most disadvantaged members of the community. The opportunity to create this unique business started with Virgin Australia who wanted to discard their old corporate uniforms in a safe, secure, environmentally friendly and ethical way. So together, we developed the “Branson Bear” made from recycled flight crew uniforms. Instead of sending the uniforms as waste to landfill we started creating and supplying thousands of versions of this unique and wonderful bear. To produce our much loved teddy bears on a commercial scale we are inviting the crowdfunding community to be part of our journey. The crowdfunding campaign starts with ReadyFundGo on 30 April. https://readyfundgo.com/project/loop

Immunotherapy to cure cancer

A friend was diagnosed with cancer this year and advised he had 3 months to live. He was given the option of immunotherapy at the Kinghorn Cancer Centre in Sydney and, though it had risks, took the option and his cancer has now gone. This exciting new approach to cancer treatment involves creating drugs that target cells of the immune system, not the cancer. Basically, the immune system is strengthened to protect against, or attack a specific tumour type. https://www.garvan.org.au/foundation/immunotherapy-changing-way-think-cancer-treatment/

Exporting sunshine as green hydrogen

Australia could soon be “exporting sunshine” in the form of ­renewable energy-produced ­hyd­rogen, creating an industry that could rival Australia’s LNG ­exports. Hydrogen has significant potential as a clean energy source, but is currently uneconomical to produce and export at scale. Japan is embracing hydrogen, which produces heat and water vapour when burned, in a national strategy to create an emissions-free “hydrogen society” by 2030. The shift to green hydrogen, produced by ­excess solar and wind energy, would allow Australia to “export sunshine” on a large scale. https://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/climate/chief-scientist-alan-finkel-talks-up-green-hydrogen-exports/news-story/084d7c40674373ab969312a2674fd534?

An autism school program making a difference

Marangaroo Primary School is one of five public schools in Western Australia hosting a new program for students with autism. Under the program students receive intensive instructions in their own classes, while given every opportunity to integrate with mainstream students. The ultimate aim is for them to transition into mainstream classes.The programs follow the WA curriculum and target age-appropriate academic skills while addressing the many challenges associated with autism including socialisation, emotional regulation, limited interests and repetitive behaviours. Eligible students require an ASD diagnosis, without accompanying intellectual disability, and need to be independent in terms of toileting and dressing. www.abc.net.au/news/2018-04-12/new-wa-autism-school-program-making-a-difference/9642608

A digital voice that sounds human

Voicery offers something most companies probably didn’t know they needed even just five years ago: a customized digital voice that sounds like an actual human, not a computer. It only needs a few hours of a voice actor’s speech, on which it trains a deep neural network to imitate that person’s voice. Voicery’s AI-synthesized voices sound human enough to convey carefully designed emotions that can act as an extension of a company’s brand. www.fastcodesign.com/90166206/the-future-of-branding-synthetic-voices-that-sound-100-human

Cities running on car batteries

The idea, known as “vehicle-to-grid”, is to have millions of drivers become mini electricity traders, charging up when rates are cheap and pumping energy back into the grid during peak hours or when the sun is not shining. We need storage to make better use of wind and solar power, and electric cars could provide it. Today, fewer than 1 per cent of the world’s vehicles are electric, but by 2040 more than half of all new cars will be electric. The first company to offer a product that allows drivers to both buy and sell power is San Diego-based Nuvve, which has succeeded by focusing on business customers in Denmark. www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/cities-running-on-car-batteries-idea-so-crazy-it-might-just-work?

Facebook Plus as a paid subscription?

What if there was a way you could pay to remove the targeted ads from Facebook, stop it from tracking everything you do and make your data more secure? Currently “we don’t pay for the product because we are the product”. Our data has been collected and is now used to influence us in many ways. A paid product could give us the sharing advantages we originally liked in Facebook without the disadvantages of lack of privacy. www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-switch/wp/2018/04/05/what-if-we-paid-for-facebook-instead-of-letting-it-spy-on-us-for-free/

Nanoneedles to detect cancer

CSIRO scientists are investigating whether wearable nanoneedles could be used to analyse interstitial fluid, which is the fluid around your cells. In that fluid they’re working to detect cancer biomarkers, like tumour DNA and other intercellular signatures, through your skin – but without causing any pain. If it’s found to be do-able, this could potentially give them the ability to detect cancers much earlier and increase treatment success, in a much less invasive way. https://blog.csiro.au/nanoneedles-just-what-the-doctor-will-order/
