Evidently its a organization that promotes individuals that have smarts, They corroborate seminars to promote Ideas, and I'm sure Venture Capitalist's are lurking in the audience.
One Idea was in using LEDs for lighting, and adapting them to transmit data in a room, much like a remote TV control. Same principle but at a much wider bandwidth. Data streaming would flow through the power-grid the same way you get DSL or cable, however it could be used in street-lighting, Hospitals, Public buildings, etc. It would work even in daylight as normal light sends out no data to interfere.
