Tech to Help His Daughter Handle Diabetes
Just weeks after Todd Sharp’s daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, he built a progressive web app to help her make insulin dosage decisions. His app connects a Bluetooth food scale and wireless glucose monitor to various cloud services, including a cloud database and USDA nutritional data. He’s demoing his app at Oracle Code One—and hoping for audience feedback.
Peering into Fog Computing
“Edge computing” helps Internet of Things sensors provide split-second response times by moving compute power and analytics closer to the sensor. “Fog computing” does the same, but then also sends the data back to bigger computers for deeper, long-term analytics. This arrangement is seeing significant growth in areas such as autonomous cars, says Dragon Slayer Consulting’s Marc Staimer.
