The Solution: TaggPic technology is based solely on visual features, and does not require any metadata, such as GPS tags, manual tagging, or other location sensors, although it is capable of working with inputs from all three. The underlying algorithms can determine the precise position of the camera viewpoint in a geo-referenced coordinate system, even if no prior data about the photo’s location is known.

In response to President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper challenge to cities to develop a “cradle-to-career” strategy for young people of color, the African American Postsecondary Pathway brings together city, education, business, and non-profit leadership to take collective responsibility for improving the life outcomes of African American students in San Francisco. While San Francisco’s economy has prospered in recent years, the growth has not benefitted all communities equally. As the cost of living soars, San Francisco’s African American population has dramatically declined. And despite the proliferation of well-paying tech sector jobs, African Americans make up 2% of San Francisco’s tech workforce. Simply put, many young African Americans are not earning a livable wage in San Francisco and thus cannot afford to live in the city they call home. The African American Postsecondary Pathway is committed to changing this. The collaboration features a broad-based partnership team, led by the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD), that is developing new services and strategies to prepare African American students in public schools to successfully enter the workforce and be a part of the City’s prosperity. Their cradle-to-career plan will provide targeted and coordinated support throughout each student’s educational journey, culminating in meaningful career opportunities. In its first year, partners have focused on the 234 African American students in the SFUSD Class of 2015, to ensure each student receives individualized academic support and advising, and benefits from workforce exposure and mentorship. Recognizing that education doesn’t end with a high school diploma, the African American Postsecondary Pathway will continue to work with alumni students and monitor their progress through the age of 25, consistent with Arnold Chandler’s Life Course Framework.

Google released most of the Android code under the Apache License, a free software and open source license.

Libraries written in C include the surface manager, OpenCore media framework, SQLite relational database management system, OpenGL ES 2.0 3D graphics API, WebKit layout engine, SGL graphics engine, SSL, and Bionic libc. The Android operating system, including the Linux kernel, consists of roughly 12 million lines of code including 3 million lines of XML, 2.8 million lines of C, 2.1 million lines of Java, and 1.75 million lines of C++.
