Box continues to encourage creativity and innovation with its ongoing parade of challenges, competitions, and hackathons. Its latest quest to engage the developer community arrives in the form of a Risk-inspired online battle: BRISK. BRISK started as a typical Box challenge; however, to date it has developed into its "own wondrous virtual world, complete with it’s own servers, it’s own API and it’s own set of rules." The strategy and competition have become intense and complicated, but the goal remains simple: "devise the optimal strategy for your bot to take over the world."
You have heard of fitness apps that collect personal data. Well, now a system is in the works to quantify your car data as well. Eventually, it will make that data available in personal APIs for other developers to build on.
