Hertz Fellow Adam Marblestone Named to MIT Technology Review’s 2018 Innovators Under 35 List

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 29 giugno 2018

The Fannie and John Hertz Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to empowering America’s most brilliant minds in science, mathematics, and engineering, announced that Hertz Fellow Adam Marblestone has been named to MIT Technology Review’s prestigious annual list of Innovators Under 35 as a Visionary. For over a decade, the global media company has recognized a list of exceptionally talented technologists whose work has great potential to transform the world. Adam is one of over a dozen Hertz Fellows to be named to the list since its inception.
Adam is Chief Strategy Officer of Kernel, and a part-time research affiliate with the Synthetic Neurobiology group at MIT. As a Hertz Fellow, at Kernel, and at MIT, Adam has envisioned and launched the development of new tools to map neural connections and record their activity at vastly improved scale and resolution. These tools bring exciting new capabilities to efforts to map, understand, and interface with our brains.
In his PhD as a Hertz Fellow in Biophysics at Harvard, with George Church and colleagues, Adam co-authored experimental and theoretical papers on molecular recording devices and road-mapped approaches for whole-brain mapping.More recently, Adam has co-authored papers analyzing our understanding of cortical computation, seeking strategies to integrate deep learning and neuroscience, and proposing new designs for neural interfaces. In his work with Hertz Fellow Ed Boyden at MIT, he helped to initiate the field of optical connectomics using the combination of expansion microscopy, in-situ sequencing, and machine learning. At MIT, he was an investigator on an IARPA-funded project to map the neural connectome through in-situ sequencing of RNA barcodes.”The Hertz Fellowship gave me the freedom to pursue a non-traditional research focus, and to set up the collaborative network that underlies my work on scalable neural recording recognized by this award,” said Adam. “What’s more, the work itself contains input from many other Hertz fellows.”Adam is also a co-founder of BioBright, a company aiming to create a “smart lab” to improve biological experimentation, and a scientific advisor to the Open Philanthropy Project and to OccamzRazor. He has co-taught courses at the MIT Media Lab on Revolutionary Ventures: How to Invent and Deploy Transformative Technologies, and Cognitive Integration.

Top Hat Co-founder and CEO Named One of Canada’s Top 40 Under 40

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 29 giugno 2018

Canada’s Top 40 Under 40® is an annual recognition of the exceptional achievements of 40 outstanding Canadians under the age of 40, and is the country’s most coveted award for young business leaders. Selected from more than 800 nominees by an independent advisory board comprising more than 20 business leaders from across Canada, winners were chosen on four key criteria: Vision & Innovation; Leadership; Impact & Influence; and, Social Responsibility.
“It’s an incredible honour and privilege to receive this recognition and stand alongside some of Canada’s most distinguished visionaries and innovators,” said Silagadze. “It speaks to the opportunities and possibilities that are available to Canada’s entrepreneurs looking to make a real impact and effect positive change in the world. Bold ideas and hard work are the foundation of innovation and success, and I encourage the next generation to persist and stay committed.”
Silagadze co-founded Top Hat in 2009 because he saw a broken education system in which students pay exorbitant prices for out-of-date textbooks that don’t enable interactive and immersive learning. He also saw professors using technology that did not reflect how people actually learn outside of the classroom. Since then, Silagadze has led the company’s mission to empower educators with the tools to make higher education more effective, engaging, and affordable, to ultimately improve student success.
Today, more than 2.8 million students at 75 per cent of the top 1,000 colleges and universities in North America have used Top Hat. Most recently, Silagadze led the company through a significant product revamp, announcing the industry’s first-ever free platform to access more than 20,000 pieces of high-quality and customizable digital textbooks and open educational resources on the Top Hat Marketplace.“Here at Top Hat, our ambitious mission is carried out by more than 300 Top Hatters who are committed to making a big impact in higher education,” said Silagadze. “Our success is driven by this world-class team, and I’m incredibly proud of their drive, creativity, brilliance, and entrepreneurial mindset.” Under Silagadze’s leadership, Top Hat’s vision has been validated by funding from leading venture capital firms including Union Square Ventures, Emergence Capital, Georgian Partners, Leaders Fund, and iNovia Capital. In 2017, the company was recognized for its fast growth on lists including Deloitte Technology Fast 500, Tyton Growth50, and PROFIT 500.

EURid and IACC Team Up to Fight Cybercrime

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 29 giugno 2018

The European Registry for Internet Domains (EURid) and the International Anti-Counterfeiting Coalition (IACC), announced a joint effort to fight cybercrime in the .eu and .ею domain name space. The collaboration aims to help clear the registration database from fraudulent domain names and to establish a more secure domain space for Internet users. The agreement between the two parties was solidified through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding yesterday at the Europol IP Crime Conference in Budapest, Hungary.The scope of this collaboration is based on the exchange of knowledge and support pertaining to cybercrime, specifically counterfeiting and piracy, in the .eu and .ею domain name space. It entails engaging in joint efforts, exchanging statistical data and trends pertaining to cybercrime, and committing to cooperate on projects designed to address the issue.Over the last 3 years, EURid has strengthened its efforts in cleaning up its registration database from fraudulent domain names to increase trust and security in the .eu and .ею domain name space, resulting in the suspension of more than 70,000 domain names. Learn more about EURid’s trust and security efforts at trust.eurid.eu.“Overall, cybercrime rates worldwide have been climbing over the past few years. It’s imperative that we continue to monitor and identify abusive registrations and alleged illegal activity happening within the .eu and .ею space and take action in a timely manner. We increase our efforts in combatting illegal activity online and hopefully influence others to do the same,” said Geo Van Langenhove, EURid’s Legal Manager.For the IACC, this MOU marks the first time that the organisation has collaborated with a registry, underscoring the its mission to combat online counterfeiting and piracy through strategic partnerships with intermediaries in all industries.
“Online counterfeiting has grown in scale, threatening Internet users’ safety and overall experience on the web. With the IACC’s expertise in anti-counterfeiting and EURid’s oversight of the .eu and .ею domain spaces, this partnership is a positive step toward ridding the Internet of counterfeiters and establishing a trusted online environment for all,” said Bob Barchiesi, IACC President.The EURid – IACC MOU marks an important step in the right direction to combating cybercrime, but the organisations’ efforts won’t stop there. EURid has been actively working with various law enforcement agencies such as the Belgian Federal Ministry of Economy and the Cybersquad team. The IACC continues to establish and promote its world-renowned online anti-counterfeiting programs, which were created in partnership with credit card companies and other major payment providers, as well as online marketplaces. The IACC also works closely with law enforcement agencies and organizations, including EUROPOL, by sharing resources and expertise. In addition to signing an MOU with EUROPOL in 2016, the IACC is also an organizing partner to the EUROPOL IP Crime Conference.

eCOMM Merchant Solutions Expands Operations into Europe

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 29 giugno 2018

eCOMM Merchant Solutions, has confirmed it is now trading in three European countries and is at an advanced stage of preparations to trade in another two. Founded in 2014 by Irish entrepreneur Noel Moran, the company operates out of Navan, Ireland, and is licensed to transact in 35 countries across Europe. The company is a ‘1-stop-shop’ payments provider, enabling merchants to accept VISA and Mastercard payments via point of sale (POS) terminals as well as via its online eCommerce service. However, unlike many payment processors who can offer similar services, eCOMM is also a payment gateway, acquirer, underwriter and processor. This means it can carry out much of the back-office processing that others have to pay to outsource to third parties.
Speaking about the success of the business model, Founder and CEO Noel Moran said: “We have had good traction with our offerings in Ireland, the UK and Greece, so we are happy that the proposition is sound. Right now, we have 17 vacancies we are looking to fill as we continue with our expansion plans. Next for us will be to launch operations in Hungary and Cyprus, where we have been preparing the ground for some time. After that, we will work with more merchants right across Europe.”This is a time of great upheaval in the payments industry generally: Services can be unbundled and re-combined to offer new more flexible payment options Advances in technology have driven consumer expectations for a cashless, frictionless, low cost and personalised experience when they make or receive payments. Legislation in the form of the Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) and GDPR have empowered consumers and opened up huge opportunities for a new breed of FinTech companies. Moran added, “The key here is to be able to support merchants in what their customers want to do.” Already eCOMM supports Android Pay, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, and also Alipay from the Alibaba Group in China. But Moran says it also has a number of projects in the pipeline which will allow merchants of any size to take advantage of the latest advances in payments technology.

Con oltre 2.000 esemplari censiti in Italia, il bulldog francese scala le classifiche dei cani più amati

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 29 giugno 2018

I bulldog francesi censiti in Italia da Enci – Ente Nazionale Cinofilia Italiana nel 2017 sono 2.386. Nel 2014 erano 1.499 e rispetto al 2010 sono più che triplicati. Questo è il segnale di come tale razza abbia conquistato il cuore di tutti: adulti, bambini, single, famiglie, gente comune e vip. Basti pensare alle star di casa nostra e d’oltre oceano da Chiara Ferragni a Lorenzo Pellegrini, da Brad Pitt a Heidi Klum.
Parente del “cugino” della Gran Bretagna, degli Alans del Medio Evo e dei mastini, il bulldog francese è stato protagonista, dal 15 al 17 giugno scorsi, dell’ENCI Winner 2018, la più importante expo canina dell’anno che si è tenuta a Fiera di Milano Rho. Qui, tra oltre 400 razze, il bulldog francese si è fatto notare classificandosi 3° nella categoria Juniores dell’ENCI Winner e 2° nella categoria Juniores del Milan International Dog Show, evento che si è svolto durante la manifestazione.
Ad affascinare tutti è la sua corporatura robusta e un po’ buffa, il risultato di diversi incroci ai quali si sono dedicati gli allevatori parigini negli anni ’80 dell’800 quando il bulldog francese, da cane di scaricatori, macellai e cocchieri dei mercati generali, conquista l’alta società e gli artisti. Nel 1880 nasce a Parigi il primo Club di razza e nel 1887 il bulldog francese concorre alla prima esposizione canina.
Oggi il Bulldog Francese è popolarissimo anche sui social: questa tendenza è stata “fotografata” per Hitachi da socialbeat.it, la piattaforma che studia le conversazioni sul web per individuare gli argomenti di maggiore interesse in tempo reale e per l’immediato futuro.
I climatizzatori Hitachi sono tutti in pompa di calore e con tecnologia Inverter. Inoltre, Hitachi Air Conditioning assicura l’affidabilità di tutti i condizionatori residenziali con una estensione di garanzia di 5 anni; su tutta la gamma è disponibile e completamente gratuita l’App Hi-Kumo per un controllo totale dell’impianto di climatizzazione da smartphone e tablet.
