TYSONS CORNER, Va., Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Spherix Incorporated (SPEX) -- an intellectual property development company committed to the fostering and monetization of intellectual property, is very proud to announce that its CEO, Anthony Hayes has been named one of the top 10 personalities of the year of 2013 by IAM.

Joff Wild of IAM Magazine said "Anthony Hayes – He began 2013 announcing that he would be managing a $30 million patent investment fund. But Anthony Hayes did not end 2013 doing that. Instead, he is now in charge of NPE Spherix which, on 31st December outlined the details of its purchase of 101 patents from another NPE, Rockstar, in a deal that involved the issuance of $60 million worth of Spherix securities (this is the second deal with Rockstar that Spherix did in 2013; the first took place in July and was almost immediately followed by assertions VTech and Uniden). Hayes took over as CEO and President of Spherix following the completion of its purchase of North South Holdings in September and has been kept very busy ever since. Away from deal-making and litigation – though not unconnected to them – Hayes oversaw the creation of a Technology Advisory Board "to help provide compensation to inventors of patent portfolios acquired by Spherix". It was a very smart move."  

On behalf of Spherix, Board Member Edward Karr said "We are proud of this distinction for both Anthony and the company. The recognition by IAM further supports our belief that Spherix is a leader in the patent monetization arena"

About IAM:

Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) was launched in July 2003 to address the need for organizations to maximize the value of their IP and other intangibles, and to examine the strategies they can put in place to do this. IAM is unique because it treats IP as a business asset and tool rather than simply as a legal right. With this unequaled appeal to the boardroom, IAM has firmly established itself as the only IP publication that many senior corporate executives read regularly.

Combining a mix of news, analysis, specialist columns and longer features, IAM focuses on how IP rights and other intangibles can be used to drive revenue, improve profitability, increase shareholder value and also provide greater flexibility in the financial markets. The magazine is topical, timely and continually thought-provoking for its subscription audience. Editorial quality and integrity are paramount. The quality of the editorial is guaranteed by an in-house team with long-established track records of writing for many of the world's leading business publications, including the Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times, and by editor Joff Wild – "one of the best in the business", according to Alain Pompidou, former president of the European Patent Office.

This experienced team is supported by a senior editorial board which includes, for example, IP monetization pioneer Marshall Phelps, once of IBM and later Microsoft, and Ruud Peters, the CEO of Philips IP & Standards. Recognizing the accelerating crossover between IP and finance, IAM has worked in partnership with the Intangible Asset Finance Society since 2006, ensuring regular coverage of this increasingly important area, and is the Strategic Media Partner for the Licensing Executives Society (LES) for the USA and Canada.

IAM also publishes a weekly email which has over 17,000 subscribers. It comprises a summary of IAM's widely read IP blog, international reports from leading law firms across the globe and a summary of IP news published elsewhere on the web. The website hosts a full searchable archive of all articles and supplements published over the last 10 years, plus an events section and the editor's daily blog.

Lastly, IAM also hosts the IP Business Congress (IPBC) Global and IPBC Asia. The IPBC is widely recognized as the single must-attend event for all those working in the field of IP value creation. The next IPBC Global will be held in Amsterdam on 22nd to 24th June 2014, and the next IPBC Asia will be in Singapore on 17th to 19th November 2013.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video.

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
