"We were the pioneers in this massive market decades ago" explained Vivek Burhanpurkar, President of Great Rock. , "Some 25 years ago Cyberworks worked with major companies in this industry to manufacture and sell Autonomous Robots for Industrial cleaning" added Burhanpukar. In the United States alone, commercial cleaning is a $25 billion dollar a year "invisible niche industry" where 50% of costs are attributable to labor. Said Burhanpurkar, "We are not interested in the consumer market where products like Roomba dominate. The industrial market is a totally different animal and we know the major multinational players within it." "We created this market, in Partnership with leading industrial companies, when we developed the world's first industrial robotic sweeper and the technology we have today is once again years ahead of the competition. Industry participants will now be able to retro-fit the Cyberworks Guidance System into existing fielded equipment, creating an inexpensive robotics machine" explained Burhanpurkar.
In other robotics advancements and recent developments: Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) is officially trading as Alphabet, meaning that companies falling outside of the tech giant's core businesses (Robots! Drones!) now have more breathing room to operate independently and move faster. There have been reports that Google will create a separate branch for robotics under the newly formed Alphabet. This isn't a huge surprise, since most of their robotics companies already operate within one division: Google X.

International Business Machines Corp (NYSE: IBM) Breaks New Ground With Cognitive Computing Unit -Thanks in large part to a nice run this past week, IBM's stock price has slowly inched up about 6% so far in October, as of this writing. However, its recent gains have simply eased IBM's year-to-date stock-price declines, which now sit at about 5%. The problem appears to be the unwillingness of investors to look past the notion that IBM is no longer all about PCs and hardware. Hardware and software sales both dropped double digits last quarter, which of course plays right into the hands of IBM naysayers; but that will almost certainly change before long. The "new" IBM is all about CEO Ginni Rometty's "strategic imperatives," consisting of cloud services, business analytics (which houses its super-computer Watson), security, social media, and mobile solutions. IBM has recently added one more item to its list of strategic imperatives, and it could prove to be another winner.
