Zeno of Citium was a Greek thinker from Citium , Cyprus. He was possibly of Phoenician descent,. Zeno was the founder of the Stoic school of philosophy, which he taught in Athens from about 300 BC. Based on the moral ideas of the Cynics, Stoicism laid great emphasis on goodness and peace of mind gained from living a life of Virtue in accordance with Nature. It proved very successful, and flourished as the dominant philosophy from the Hellenistic period through to the Roman era. Wikipedia.

Currently, less than 1% of Africa's population has a broadband subscription. Tizeti provides unlimited plans at an affordable price - 30% lower than existing mobile offerings. Tizeti is now the seventh investment of Zeno Ventures, which has completed a closing of its debut fund earlier this year. Zeno Ventures has also invested in Breaker, Joy Labdoor, Snappr, Standard Bots, Starcity and Tizeti. Zeno Ventures was founded in 2016 by Christopher Kile and Duarte Moreira. It invests internationally in fast growing technology startups from its Geneva and San Francisco locations. For more information please visit www.zenoventures.com .

Various aspects disclosed herein are directed to different types of personal assistant techniques for facilitating call event notation, tagging, calendaring, and etc., particularly those implemented on mobile communication devices. Users of mobile devices are provided with a relatively easy way to record and organize personal notes relating to one or more selected telephone conversations conducted by the user. Users can also manage notes, tasks, and schedule items related to the users contacts and social network(s). In at least one embodiment, a Mobile Application running on a users mobile device may be configured or designed to automatically detect an end of phone call event at the mobile device, and to automatically display a pop-up dialog GUI prompting the user to record a personalized note or other content (if desired), to be associated with the phone call which just ended.

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project seeks to continue the development of a novel one-transistor memory device, which has both volatile and non-volatile functionality, through collaboration with a commercial foundry partner. Such memory combines the non-volatile memory's ability to retain information in the absence of power (such as Flash memory) and the fast access speed and reliability of a volatile memory (such as Static Random Access Memory (SRAM)). In addition to the memory cell development and optimization, a memory block will also be developed to initiate commercialization effort of the memory technology. The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is to enable power-efficient computing applications and mobile devices. For example, it can be used to reduce power consumptions in data centers. Data centers' annual energy consumption is estimated to be 150 billion kWh, about twice the capacity of the current US solar panel. A power-efficient memory such as the one proposed in this proposal can reduce the overall data centers' power consumption by up to 75%. Another application is to provide an integrated memory solution. Many electronic devices currently employ multiple types of memory, due to their own distinct characteristics. The proposed device will be able to combine the different types of memory into a single memory device, simplifying the manufacturing process for embedded memories.
