By Al JazeeraEnglish staffA few years ago, when Lawrence Technology University in Lawrence, Kansas, was looking for a new name for its technology department, a friend suggested “New Light Technologies”.
The idea caught the attention of two university graduates, Andrew Smith and Eric Friesen, and they set about designing a name that would capture their passion for cutting edge science and technology.
With the help of a small team of friends, they settled on “Newlight Technologies”.
Newlight is a brand that will stand out from the crowd.
The name is a nod to the many innovations that have taken place at the company’s Lawrence campus.
The company’s products are used to make the world’s most powerful microscopes, cameras and laser pointers, among other things.
Its global reach is not only due to the company providing technology to a range of industries, but it has also enabled the company to reach beyond its own market.
In 2016, Newlight’s product line included lasers for the development of medical imaging, a sensor for medical imaging equipment, and lasers for military drones.
The company has recently expanded its scope beyond the medical industry.
The US military recently purchased the technology company to provide technology for surveillance systems.
Newlight currently has two research teams at the University of Pennsylvania, one in the US and one in Israel, working on projects such as self-driving cars, artificial intelligence and medical imaging.
The Israeli team is led by Professor Yossi Ben-David, who received a PhD in artificial intelligence from Newlight in 2014.
In recent years, New Light has also been active in a number of areas outside the medical field.
In 2018, it announced the launch of a new division called “Global Innovation”.
The company is focused on the area of artificial intelligence.
New Light’s new division is part of the New Light Innovation Lab, a joint venture with IBM and the University and New Light Research Group, which aims to accelerate the development and commercialisation of artificial-intelligence solutions in industries such as medical imaging and robotics.
In 2015, the company announced its plans to enter the consumer market with a smartphone called the NewLight Newlight 3.
The phone will feature the same cameras, sensors and lenses that Newlight has been building into its products.
The NewLight 3 will include a 5-inch screen and a 16-megapixel camera.
In order to get this kind of smartphone into the hands of consumers, the phone will be manufactured at Newlight.
The price of the device is yet to be determined, but a price tag of $250,000 has been estimated.
A New Light spokesperson told Al Jazeera: “We are pleased to be partnering with the University for this next generation of New Light technology.
NewLight has a long and proud history in the technology industry and we are excited to work with them to develop innovative products for the consumer and industrial markets.”
In the past, NewLight had partnered with other tech companies to bring innovative products to market.
This partnership with IBM has given New Light the chance to work directly with IBM to develop its own products, while New Light will work with IBM on the development, manufacturing and sales of its products as well.
The IBM Watson Watson is IBM’s AI system used to run the company ‘s Watson business, a database system that allows users to do their research and analysis on massive amounts of data.
IBM Watson was introduced as part of Watson’s ‘Big Five’ software suite.
In the coming years, it will be interesting to see if New Light and IBM Watson will co-operate more closely, as they have developed a strong relationship over the past two decades.
“Our team will be working closely with IBM Watson and the company for the next five years to bring a wide range of innovative products into the marketplace,” said Eric Frysen, vice president of IBM Watson.
“Our vision is to build a global AI company, one that builds products that work on the scale of the world, and one that works with customers that have the expertise to build the next-generation of Watson systems.”
New Light currently has around 300 employees.
The team of 20 is expected to grow to around 1,000 in the next few years.
The two companies are currently working on the introduction of a range on the Watson platform that will allow customers to quickly scan images of medical images.
