EGG NYC 2018 Explores the Future of Enterprise AI

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 12 ottobre 2018

The second annual EGG NYC, an exclusive one-day conference that explores cutting edge topics in data science, machine learning, and AI, has been announced for November 15 in New York and will look to drive meaningful insights and conversations around the future of ‘Enterprise AI.’ By bringing together leaders in analytics, data science, and machine learning, the conference looks to become an exploration of new ideas about what it takes to transform organizations currently and in the near future.Organized by advanced analytics software maker Dataiku, the EGG conferences were founded on the idea that there has been a profound shift in enterprise data practices from established practices towards the use of cutting-edge technologies like data science, machine learning, and AI. But still, many companies struggle to evolve, and to go beyond the technology limitations. As Artificial Intelligence (AI) moves beyond just being a headline to becoming a reality for enterprises that can create meaningful competitive advantage, businesses across all industries are looking to understand exactly how to dive into the field.

Churches discuss future of Europe at European Commission

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 10 ottobre 2018

Brussels. Representatives from some of the CEC Member Churches participated at the European Commission Annual High-Level Meeting with Religious Leaders in Brussels.The meeting was held on 8 October hosted by the First Vice-President Frans Timmermans. The event addressed the theme “The Future of Europe: addressing challenges through concrete actions” bringing together heads of religious organisations from across Europe.In follow up to the discussions last year the religious leaders spoke about the concrete actions that should be taken to respond effectively to the challenges faced by Europe.Among issues that were discussed included migration, social integration and sustainability of way of life and the upcoming European Parliament elections, which remained a priority matter. The religious leaders also reviewed European Union’s response to these issues.“As churches we feel very concerned about the challenges faced by Europe, not only that we raised in the CEC open letter and process Future of Europe, but also issues related to labour and most importantly how we deal with the fears. We need to work towards trust in our common future and common good of Europe,” said CEC President Rev. Christian Krieger.Bishop Mariano Crociata, Bishop of Latina, First Vice-President of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Union said, “We must listen and understand the elements that constitute fear. These are the fears that are expressed in the political reactions. We must not simply deny these fears but we must recognise these fears and address in our communities.”
The high-level meetings and discussions are held regularly between the European Commission and churches and religious, philosophical and non-confessional organisations. The meetings were launched by the Commission in 2009 when such dialogue was enshrined in the Lisbon Treaty (Article 17 TFEU). The dialogue is now under the responsibility of First Vice-President Timmermans.

Next Generation of Innovators and Future World Leaders

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 24 agosto 2018

FIRST® Global, a not-for-profit organization established to promote science and technology leadership and innovation in young people from all nations through the sport of robotics, brought together students from more than 160 nations last week at Arena Ciudad de Mexico for the FIRST Global Challenge, a high-profile, international robotics competition convening high-school-aged participants who work together to solve global challenges.Ricardo Salinas, chairman of Grupo Salinas, founding member of FIRST Global, and chairman and host of the 2018 FIRST Global Challenge in Mexico City, recognized the passion of the young competitors in creating and driving robots. “This is the best demonstration that this world can become a better world if we all work together,” he said.The focus of the 2018 FIRST Global Challenge was “Energy Impact,” in which shifting alliances of three nations competed to fuel power plants, initiate renewable energy plans and build a resilient transmission network in a simulated exercise using robots. The event highlighted the importance of various energy sources and making them more sustainable, excited students to learn and discover STEM through robotics, and inspired students and adults alike on the importance of collaborating across places of origin, creeds, religions, and races to build a better tomorrow.
This competition inspires not only those who participate, but also many more from the teams’ home countries. The inaugural FIRST Global Challenge was held last year with 157 nations. It’s based on the principles of FIRST, a K-12 STEM education nonprofit founded by inventor Dean Kamen in 1989.“I’ve learned through FIRST that if we teach the world’s young people the common language of STEM, they’ll learn how to work together across cultural and religious differences,” said Dean Kamen, president of DEKA Research & Development and founder of FIRST and FIRST Global. “Through the excitement of an Olympic-style sporting event, the FIRST Global Challenge is uniting students around the world to solve the greatest problems we face as a global community.”
Official sponsors of the 2018 FIRST Global Challenge include: Bezos Family Foundation, TE Connectivity Foundation, Qualcomm Incorporated, Royalty Pharma/Alianzia AMZA, DeKa Foundation, Intel, Shell, Baker Hughes GE, FedEx, Tec de Monterrey, and MexiChem.

Future EU Maritime and Fisheries Fund

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 19 giugno 2018

EU Commissioner Karmenu Vella, responsible for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, will be at the Council in Luxembourg to present and discuss the Commission’s ‘Policy Statement’ setting the stage for the proposals that will come later for fishing opportunities for 2019 as well as the recent legislative proposals on a revision of the European fisheries control system and a Regulation for a new European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.Ministers are expected to have an exchange of views on the Policy Statement. This annual Communication sets out the rational for the subsequent Commission proposals on the fishing opportunities for 2019. Progress made next year will be crucial for achieving the EU’s objective of securing sustainable fisheries in its waters. This will include the full phasing in of the landing obligation, requiring fishermen to land all catches to stop the wasteful practice of throwing unwanted fish back in the sea. Until end of August, a public consultation invites Member States, Advisory Councils, other stakeholders and citizens to comment on the Commission Communication. In the autumn, the Commission will table its proposals for fishing opportunities, based on independent scientific advice. The Council will then aim at a final agreement in its meeting of October (fishing opportunities for the Baltic), November (fishing opportunities for the deep-sea) and December (fishing opportunities for the Atlantic, the North Sea and the Black Sea).Commissioner Vella will also present the recent proposal to improve, modernise and simplify the way in which fishing rules are monitored and enforced in the EU. An effective control system is central to ensuring that fisheries are managed sustainably, guaranteeing the long-term viability of the EU fishing sector and protecting the livelihoods of our fishermen. Ministers will have a first exchange of views on the proposed revision, which wants to make control more efficient to the benefit of EU fisheries. The fight against illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing will benefit from improved enforcement of fisheries rules across the EU.Finally, a preliminary exchange of views will take place among ministers on the Commission’s proposal for the next European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF), recently tabled following the adoption of the EU’s long-term Budget for the Future (2021-2027). The new EMFF will continue to support the objectives of the Common Fisheries Policy, ensuring that fishing activities are environmentally sustainable in the long-term and that the sector generates economic, social and employment benefits. Particular attention will be paid to small-scale fishermen. EMFF will also support unleashing the growth potential of a sustainable blue economy towards a more prosperous future for coastal communities. For the first time, the Fund will contribute to strengthening international ocean governance for safer, cleaner, more secure, and sustainably managed seas and oceans. Finally, the Commission is reinforcing the environmental impact of the Fund with a focus on protecting marine ecosystems and underpinning climate change mitigation and adaptation, in line with the commitments agreed under the Paris Agreement.

Silicon Valley Forum’s 21st Annual Visionary Awards, Four New Honorees, and A Vision for the Future

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 22 maggio 2018

Silicon Valley Forum concluded their 21st Annual Visionary Awards on May 17th, 2018, at Domenico Winery in San Carlos, CA. With over 100 guests in attendance, the 2018 Awards honored four new Visionaries, inviting them to the stage to honor their accomplishments and hear them speak about their experiences and insights.“This is the 21st year we’ve held the Visionary Awards, and it’s such an honor to be able to host some of the best and brightest minds in technology, business, and education,” said Denyse Cardozo, CEO of Silicon Valley Forum. “As the landscape of Silicon Valley changes throughout the years, the path forward needs new leaders to light the way forward to a better future we all share. Our 2018 honorees—Kimberly Bryant, Caterina Fake, Vivek Wadhwa, and Astro Teller—each embody the kind of pathfinding that makes someone a Visionary.” “Accenture is proud to have honored a remarkable group of Visionaries by serving as a Gold sponsor for Silicon Valley Forum’s 2018 Visionary Awards,” said Michael Redding, Managing Director of Accenture Ventures. “The Awards are a great chance to honor the luminaries who have shaped the world as we know it through their talent, their tenacity, and their far-seeking visions for a better future.”The 2018 honorees each spoke about what they enjoyed about Silicon Valley—and their vision for what technologists and entrepreneurs can do to push towards a better future:
Astro Teller, Captain of Moonshots at Google X, said, “If you want people to be brave, if you want them to be weird, if you want them to be creative, the only correct answer [to their ideas] is ‘oh my God, what a gorgeous idea that is!’ You’re telling them I value that your brain makes statements like that.” Flickr founder and Yes VC general partner Caterina Fake urged people to take personal responsibility as netizens, saying, “The internet was conceived with a generosity of spirit, but it is indifferent to whether it transmits love or hate. It’s what we build and who we are that makes all the difference.” Vivek Wadhwa, author, academic researcher, and Carnegie Mellon Fellow, addressed Silicon Valley’s controversial reputation and diversity issues, saying, “The beauty of Silicon Valley is that it recognizes that it’s imperfect. That we can even have these discussions [about change] openly is a big deal.” He urged the audience to step up and take advantage of technology advances to make a difference.Black Girls CODE founder and CEO Kimberly Bryant closed the evening by drawing a line between personal and professional worlds, saying, “When the path to found Black Girls CODE was revealed, it was the mother of a daughter—and a woman of color—who wanted to create a pathway for my daughter and for girls like her. Technology can be used as a catalyst for powerful social change.”

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 25 febbraio 2018

Students are preparing for Future Lions 2018, AKQA’s global undergraduate competition that aims to discover a new generation of talent helping to positively change the way we view the world. Providing a platform to discover and inspire young artists, coders and writers, Future Lions entrants often solve a variety of problems with purpose-led thinking.Sweden’s Berghs School of Communication, Future Lions School of the Year for the fourth consecutive year, visited AKQA’s Berlin studio last week to learn about a continuously transforming commercial landscape and the evolving set of skills and methods required to create breakthrough work. As part of their prize, Future Lions School of the Year winners are invited to participate in career workshops with AKQA’s international teams.Twenty-two students pitched their final semester’s projects to the AKQA Creative team, independent of this year’s jury who evaluated each presentation, providing feedback and encouragement. An idea-mapping workshop also provided participants with a methodology to help organise their creativity in a practical and systematic way.Christopher Waldekrantz, Head of Marketing at Berghs School of Communication, said: “The opportunity to collaborate with the team at AKQA is one we value highly. At Berghs, we strive to educate the next generation of creatives who understand the challenges of today, but more importantly, the challenges of tomorrow. This preparatory session was incredibly useful for our students as it tested their existing thinking, and helped them prepare for life in the industry.”Now in its 13th year, and in collaboration with the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, AKQA’s Future Lions competition challenges students to connect people to an idea in a way not possible three years ago. There are no rules as to media or technology, and no specifics around product, service or target audience. The five student teams entering the best ideas will win registration to the Festival, taking place between 18 and 22 June 2018. Their winning ideas will be showcased in front of a large global audience on stage, and recognised across additional media channels.Over the past decade, the competition has launched the careers of over 70 of the world’s most celebrated creatives.

American Honda and Aquarium of the Pacific Invite Public to Join Experts in Discussion about the Future of California’s Coast

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 13 novembre 2017

san carlos californiaThe nonprofit Aquarium of the Pacific is gathering leading experts and the public to discuss the future of Southern California’s coast. The Aquarium is hosting this two-day forum co-sponsored by American Honda called Sato-umi in the Anthropocene. Day one of the forum is November 13, and is open to the public. Sato-umi is a Japanese term encompassing the relationship between coastal and marine areas and humans and how humans manage these areas for sustainability.Forum speakers will discuss the theory and application of sato-umi in the Anthropocene, the current geological era denoted by the dominating global influence of humans on Earth. “More people live along Southern California’s Pacific Ocean than in any U.S. state except Texas. These millions of people make diverse and intensive uses of their coastal ocean from shipping to offshore oil to surfing and scuba diving. Yet this urban ocean teems with a diverse assemblage of marine life from plankton to whales. Through technology and innovation, we can use the ocean and contiguous land responsibly in ways that allow us to live in better harmony with nature. There are lessons we can apply from sato-umi,” said Dr. Jerry Schubel, Aquarium of the Pacific president.An evening panel will explore how sato-umi might be applied in Southern California. The panel discussion includes the Aquarium’s president; Michael Orbach, Duke University; James Fawcett, University of Southern California; and Amber Mace, California Council on Science and Technology. The day-time forum includes Steve Center, American Honda; Masahiro Nakaoka, Hokkaido University; Anthony Barnosky, Stanford University; Avis Kuuipoleialoha Poai, University of Hawaii, Richardson School of Law; Jeffrey Payne, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office of Coastal Zone Management; Steven Gaines, UC Santa Barbara; Mimi D’lorio, National Marine Protected Areas Center; and the Aquarium’s president.

2nd Conference on Future Education

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 13 novembre 2017

università roma treRoma Giovedì 16 Novembre 2017, ore 8:00 / 18 Novembre 2017Aula Magna del Rettorato Via Ostiense 159 17/18 Aula Magna del Dipartimento di Scienze della Formazione Polo didattico
Via Principe Amedeo 184 Il Futuro dell’Educazione con EDGAR MORIN L’apprendimento efficace in una epoca caratterizzata da una sempre maggiore rapidità, complessità e incertezza.Presentazioni di Nora Bateson, Federico Mayor Zaragoza (Unesco) , Elisabeth Paunovic (OMS) e molti altri illustri relatori che rappresentano i principali attori sociali dei cinque continenti.
Nel raccogliere le sfide emerse dalla conferenza tenutasi nel 2013 all’Università di Berkeley la World Academy of Art & Science, il World University Consortium hanno voluto coinvolgere l’Università di Roma Tre nell’organizzazione di una conferenza internazionale sul futuro dell’educazione che coinvolga tutti gli stakeholder – giovani, studenti, insegnanti, professori, lavoratori, imprenditori e la società civile.La conferenza avrà come obiettivo quello di individuare pratiche educative che rispondano alle necessità e alle aspirazioni dei diversi stakeholders – giovani, insegnanti, datori di lavoro, enti di ricerca, governi e parti sociali.
Come mai prima d’ora la società affronta profondi cambiamenti, spesso repentini, generando da un lato sfide e opportunità senza precedenti e da un altro timori e incertezze. E’ pertanto indispensabile prevedere e gestire le conseguenze della quarta rivoluzione industriale, le questioni ambientali, i livelli crescenti di diseguaglianza, la disoccupazione giovanile, la globalizzazione e virtualizzazione dell’economia, l’esplosione della comunicazione e della formazione on line, il moltiplicarsi dei contatti interculturali e dei flussi migratori e il loro impatto sul mondo dell’educazione e tutte le sue componenti.
L’educazione è il mezzo più efficace attraverso il quale l’umanità coscientemente guida l’evoluzione sociale, al fine di massimizzare i benefici e ridurre i costi e i traumi associati ai processi di cambiamento.E’ urgente garantire e ampliare le opportunità di accesso a un’educazione di qualità in ogni contesto e lungo tutto l’arco di vita. Limitarsi a moltiplicare le offerte educative esistenti non è sufficiente, ciò rischierebbe di aggravare invece che di diminuire il divario esistente tra le offerte formative odierne e quello di cui abbiamo veramente bisogno; non solo in termini quantitativi ma anche qualitativi – un nuovo paradigma educativo. Aggiornare i contenuti dei corsi non è sufficiente. Abbiamo bisogno di offerte educative che preparino efficacemente le nuove generazioni a gestire le innovazioni e sfide future che attualmente non siamo neppure in grado di anticipare.Gli obiettivi
● Implementare interventi pedagogici attivi e partecipati, centrati sulla persona e sullo studente;
● Valorizzare le nuove tecnologie emergenti per l’apprendimento e la diffusione delle conoscenze;
● Promuovere sistemi di pensiero integrati;
● Esplicitare il ruolo centrale dei valori nello sviluppo umano;
● Convergere verso approcci alla conoscenza multi e transdisciplinari;
● Sviluppare abilità mentali per il pensiero indipendente e creativo, leadership e imprenditorialità;
● Ampliare gli obiettivi e gli scopi dell’apprendimento formale e non formale fino a comprendere il più ampio sviluppo della persona, della sua individualità, dei suoi valori e delle sue competenze sociali.
E’ stata ideata come piattaforma aperta e attiva per facilitare tra i partecipanti la collaborazione, la condivisione e la co-creazione di nuove idee, approcci, metodologie e buone pratiche.

Future of Interior Design: Real-Life 3D Models Created by AR with a Click of a Button

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 25 luglio 2017

plannerAR (Augmented Reality) is about to enter mainstream technology devices, which will change how we design our homes – among other things. Planner 5D is an interior design app that is creating its own AR app that would automatically recognize walls, furniture and house design model created with the app by using image recognition technology. The new technology is scheduled to be launched in November of 2017.The AR app would also create a 3D model of the house from a simple photo. A user would only need to snap a photo with their smartphone, which would be sent directly to a server, resulting in a 3D model of the house. The 3D project would be easy to edit and would allow to rearrange furniture, change textures, virtually add new furniture or to delete old furniture and exchange it with new options.Planner 5D is joining the wave of AR devices, as major technology companies – Apple, Google, Microsoft and others – work on their own AR and VR technologies. Google recently released Google Glass, displaying 2D images, and Microsoft developed a Hololens headset, embedding 3D images surrounding the user. Apple announced in June about its new ARKit, a platform for developing AR apps for iOS.Currently, Apple’s AR works well only on a horizontal surface, when the image is well-lit. However, with the speed that technology is developing, next iPhone might be ready for the advanced AR that supports even interior design.“There is an exciting future for interior planner1design, when smartphones start integrating advanced AR technology,” said Alexey Sheremetyev, CEO of Planner 5D iPhone 8, for example, will possibly have a depth-sensing camera and will recognize vertical dimensions, such as walls.. This would be a huge leap forward also for anyone designing their home, as this technology would allow to visualize such details as floor renovation, wall color change, introduction of virtual paintings, and so on.” Planner 5D has been focused on how to match AR with interior design, and has come up with solutions, such as an app dedicated only to AR.“We have been developing AR technology for a couple of years now,” said Alexey Sheremetyev. “Our goal is to create a tool that would allow to visualize any design project as if it was a physical 3D model. It would allow a user to see their future house, layout and all decor details with real-life precision.”
AR technology, which will eventually move from smart devices into AR glasses, will change the way we view interior design, making it accessible to anyone. Planner 5D is also planning to implement AI into its platform, which will suggest optimal design ideas, adjusted to a specific user’s taste and desires.
Originally a startup company founded by Alexey Sheremetyev and Sergey Nosyrev, Planner 5D has a community of over 18 million users with more than 100,000 users daily. It’s a free cross-platform application which supports in-app purchases. It can be used on a browser, Android and iOS. The app offers customization of furniture with the ability to change textures, colors and size, a VR tool and creative suggestions for home design.
