In certain embodiments, the system of the invention automatically replicates a users personal computing environment and provides associated remote server access using authentication credentials and data files supplied by a local handheld device as coordinated by session level software common to the handheld device, the replicated system, the system on which the replication occurs, and the remote servers. The application enables a handheld computing device to transfer a users various online account credentials to a users other computing devices securely and automatically. Thereafter the other computing device accesses a users cloud-based storage and various on-line accounts and also pulls selected documents, bookmarks and related information directly from a users handheld. The other computing device thereby essentially becomes a clone of a users primary personal computer, complete with bookmarks, email account access, documents in a users desktop and My Documents folder, pictures, music, and on-line content subscription access.

The system provides dietary and nutritional information, such as portion-size recommendations, portion-selection guidance, and portion-selection feedback includes various components. For instance, a request for dietary and nutritional information of a food item is received and an image is obtained that depicts the food item. A recommended portion size is determined based on various factors, such as food caloric value and a user profile. Based on the recommended portion size, a visual indicia or graphic is created that overlays the image when the image is displayed on a client device (e.g., smart phone, tablet, laptop, desktop, and the like) and that visual indicates how much of the food item in the image is recommended to be consumed. Other information can also be provided, such as alternative-food recommendations, interactive avatar feedback, and feedback as to how a portion selection compares to a group of users.

A system, method, and process improving the efficiency of the current workers compensation information supply chain, logistics and claims adjudication process and capture of data capture and analysis of work-related incidents. Employees, employers and insurance companies are legally, financially, ethically and morally compromised when unnecessary delays take place in the claims reporting process. Late reporting of an accident, injury or illness reduces the projected time line that it takes for an injured employee to return to full or partial health and the ability to return to work. Reducing lag time reporting reduces the financial exposure to the employee, employer and a workers compensation risk transfer facility also known as an insurance company. There is need for a fiduciary of claims information to have greater speed, reliability and accuracy of the information initiated through mobile devices and web portals through computers with Internet access. When combined with behavioral science professionals/concierge services or a relevant party follow-up team, the Workers Compensation rights of the employee, employer and insurance carrier are preserved and executed with greater transparency.

POSITION (POlish Support to Innovation and Technology IncubatiON action) aims at decisively supporting the EGNSS up-take in Poland. To this end, POSITION will build an integrated innovation support solution that stimulates the uptake in a sustainable manner by creating a network for the Polish GNSS sector, deepening the market and industrial capacity intelligence and lastly providing business and financing support to start-ups. POSITION has identified three key challenges which are hindering the uptake of GNSS downstream applications in Poland: a lack of GNSS application clusters and awareness, resulting in minimal interaction between entrepreneurs, users, investors and authorities; lack of market-orientation in existing research schemes and efforts combined with a lack of specialised business support for entrepreneurs and lastly a lack of specific financing sources for the sector. At the core of the proposed activities in POSITION lies the following objectives: increase awareness and capacity building, foster commercialisation and improve access to finance. In the first stage, a mapping of the Polish GNSS industrial capabilities as well as market trends/opportunities will be created, together with a first interaction with various industrial and decision-making communities. In the second stage, these interactions will be intensified and the industrial sector will be engaged in organised workshops to stimulate industrial interaction and matchmaking amongst themselves but as well with users, investors and authorities in order to enhance the utilisation of key opportunities in the EGNSS market. Selected companies will receive mentoring around business aspects in order to raise their commercialisation attitude and to help them identifying business opportunities. Advice will be provided on how to obtain funding, fine-tune their business model, market analysis and forecast, investor presentation, etc. to increase the attractiveness of their ideas for investors.
