United Technologies: Shaping the Future with Louis Chenevert

United Technologies is the leading company when it comes to the development of and innovation in technology. The company has been focusing on investing in new developments that would transform the world as we know it. They are currently working on the innovation of air travel, space travel, and things in between. One of the most recent improvements that they made is with the aircraft engine, which they call the “Geared Turbofan Engine” or GTF for short. The GTF reduces the aircraft’s fuel burn by 16%, the emissions by 50% and the noise footprint by 75%. This is a major change in the airline industry, as planes are becoming for environment friendly. Major airlines have already purchased these engines and installed them on their aircrafts, making sure that the future of air travel will be safer and greener.

United Technologies believe that by investing time and money to ideas and concepts, they can soon become a reality that would help the people of the future. The GTF engine, for example, costed the company at least $10 billion just for its design and the development. But, this amount can be slowly recovered because airlines are now purchasing it for a great price. United Technologies is also believing in the capacity of the new generation to drive the world into the future that everyone has dreamed of – a place where life is easier and better. The company is investing in the new generation by sending them to schools as scholars, learning courses that would help them contribute something to the company. United Technologies managed to send thousands of people around the world to schools, and they have contributed significantly to the development of today’s technology.

Louis R. Chenevert, once the chairman and the chief executive officer of United Technologies, have also stated that the future of the world is now in the hands of the younger generation and everyone must support them to create the world that we have long dreamed of. Under the leadership of Louis R. Chenevert, United Technologies managed to become a stronger technology company, gaining more clients, including the United States Military. Through their technologies, the world have become better, but United Technologies stated that only time will tell when they will stop innovating.

My Family Uses The Visual Search Engine Slyce

Trying The New Trend In Online Shopping

My family loves to shop online. My wife buys all of our children’s birthday and Christmas presents online, and she is often buying herself things or buying things to make our home even lovelier. Last week she bought a new lamp for the dining room, and it was shipped straight to our home. We have been shopping online for years, and I honestly believe that it makes our lives much easier. It saves us from having to spend our valuable time walking around in shopping malls to find the things that we want, and we would have to deal with what the store had in its selection, of course. The options when you shop online are unlimited, so you always leave the transaction with something that you want.

The new trend in online shopping is making things even easier. It was already a luxury to not have to go to the stores to get what we wanted to purchase, but now, we can avoid ever having to type into the search box the keywords that find the things that we want to buy. The new trend I am referring to is called visual search recognition. Visual search engines make life a whole lot easier for all of us as consumers. We can now simply find a picture of the item that we want in order to find it in the online visual search market place. Even if the item is right in front of you, you can simply snap a picture of it in order to conduct your search.

There are other options that users have when it comes to using visual search engines. A user can use a picture of the object from a print ad, or the user can also take a picture of a barcode or QR code in order to search for that product.

Slyce’s Visual Search Platform

The visual search engine that my family uses is called Slyce. My wife and I both have Slyce downloaded onto our phones. It is free to download, and Slyce is incredibly easy to navigate. Their platform produces the most reliable visual search results that I have seen. They also work with major online and offline retailers. They have recently partnered with a number of large retailers, including Neiman Marcus, Urban Outfitters, Home Depot, Tilly’s and Shoe Carnival.
