Together we can redefine possible.
Verizon Open Innovation is redefining what it means to create.
We don’t want to just iterate on what’s been done… We want to be the ones doing.
So we’re collaborating with brilliant minds outside our walls and finding new ways of applying our technology to today’s greatest challenges.
Because true innovation happens when you open yourself up to new insights and work in the space between what you know and what you think is impossible.
So what are you waiting for?
Let’s make something amazing together.
Are you ready to get started?
If you’re like us, you’ve got a stack of great ideas in your back pocket. Now it’s time to make those ideas real. Get involved with our Connected Futures Challenge with the NYC Media Lab.
Working At The Forefront Of Digital Possibilities.
We want to see what Cornell Tech students can do, so we’re letting them use our technology to create new business ideas and prototypes. It’s a big ask, but that’s what makes it fun.
There’s also the AOL Connected Experiences Lab, a powerhouse of bright minds working together to expand what we know about digital technology.
It’s about human-centered innovation, so we’re turning personal data streams into actionable insights, and personalizing content that can be delivered across platforms.
It’s also about connections—like the link between machine learning and wellness, or computer vision and education.
Because when you start making hidden connections, the opportunities are endless.
Interested in the future of the connected world? So are we. Together with the NYC Media Lab, we’re supporting the next generation of work around connected devices, virtual reality, citizen journalism, and a world without phones.
Join the Connected Futures Challenge for the opportunity to work on an original project during the 2015-2016 school year.
Submit your proposal by December 15th.
Building M-City And The Future Of Connected Cars.
Verizon and University of Michigan have teamed up to open M-City, the world’s first controlled environment for testing connected and driverless vehicles.
Through M-City, we’re getting in front of the obstacles facing autonomous vehicles. We can simulate challenges like difficult-to-read signs or malfunctioning traffic signals, in order to solve them.
We’re also exploring the far-reaching implications of connected cars, like the way smartphones are enabling vehicle-to-pedestrian communication to prevent accidents.
Our technology makes connected and driverless vehicles possible. Now through M-City, we can clear the path to market and get them on the road faster.
Advancing Wireless Solutions For A Connected World.
Our multi-year partnership with Georgia Tech is dedicated to advancing today’s most discussed areas of technology: wearables, connected cars, and the Internet of Things.
We’re giving people something new to talk about by taking our 4G LTE technology out of the phone and applying it to connected solutions for transportation, healthcare, green energy, education and wearable computing.
Changing the face of narrative storytelling.
How can virtual reality enhance the way we experience movies, art and TV? We’re tracking down the answer.
Through our seat on the board of the Entertainment Technology Center at USC, we’re exploring the evolving role of technology in the entertainment and media industry.
Together we’re working to determine the impact that virtual reality and augmented reality ecosystems have on narrative storytelling in entertainment, and affecting the future of VR film.
