Nuovo percorso in “Physics for Technologies and Innovation”

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 24 settembre 2020

Travagliato (BS)Antares Vision, multinazionale italiana leader mondiale nei sistemi d’ispezione, nelle soluzioni di tracciatura e nella gestione intelligente dei dati, rinnova il proprio sostegno alle future generazioni di professionisti attraverso la promozione, presso l’Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Brescia, dell’insegnamento in Machine Learning (fortemente voluto per l’anno accademico 2019/2020 e riproposto nel secondo trimestre di quest’anno) nel corso di laurea triennale in Matematica (curriculum di Informatica) e attraverso il sostegno al nuovo percorso in “Physics for Technologies and Innovation” della laurea magistrale in Fisica, attivo nella facoltà di Scienze matematiche, fisiche e naturali.Il supporto alla formazione qualificata è coerente con l’investimento di tutto il gruppo Antares Vision nelle competenze di intelligenza Artificiale, anche grazie al recente accordo di partecipazione con l’azienda bergamasca Orobix, leader nei servizi di questa innovativa tecnologia.In particolare, il percorso di studi di Fisica per la Tecnologia e l’innovazione è erogato in lingua inglese ed è costruito su solide conoscenze di tipo scientifico/tecnologico nel campo della fisica e un’ampia scelta di corsi nelle discipline di Innovation Management e Data Science. “Il corso – come ricordano i Prof. Claudio Giannetti, Fausto Borgonovi e Luigi Sangaletti – è sostenuto da un network di aziende e società, coinvolte nel programma e che offriranno spunti formativi, nonché daranno la possibilità di svolgere stage e tesi di laurea su argomenti di ricerca, ma calati nella realtà produttiva. Le competenze di questi professionisti sono, infatti, preziose per le imprese: fisici e matematici rappresentano figure imprescindibili per lo sviluppo dei futuri sistemi che governeranno i processi produttivi e che già oggi incidono in maniera forte sulle scelte aziendali”. “In un’epoca di profonda trasformazione digitale dove l’intelligenza artificiale gioca un ruolo fondamentale, si può provare a riassumere un termine così abusato in una formula: il risultato di Big Data + Machine Learning – dichiara Alberto Albertini, Technology Scouting & Innovation Center Director di Antares Vision –. L’effetto combinato dell’apprendimento automatico tipico delle macchine per l’analisi di dati, immagini, esempi, testi, ecc., unito all’elevata capacità di calcolo, ha offerto negli ultimi anni grandi opportunità di progresso. Questa quantità impressionante di dati, oggi raccolti e disponibili, deve però essere compresa, gestita e trasformata per migliorare e automatizzare, ove possibile, i processi produttivi e aziendali. Unificare e gestire enormi quantità di dati con la massima sicurezza e flessibilità sarà la chiave per alimentare la prossima generazione di applicazioni, con una vera e propria rivoluzione che digitalizzerà e automatizzerà una straordinaria serie di operazioni”. http://www.antaresvision.com,

Highlights from the latest issue

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 23 agosto 2020

As America’s confrontation with China escalates, our cover story looks at the resilience of the Chinese economy under Xi Jinping. A new stage of state capitalism is under way—call it Xinomics—involving tight control over the economic cycle, a more efficient state and a blurring of the boundary between state and private firms. Xinomics has performed well, but the real test will come over time. China hopes that its techno-centric form of central planning can sustain innovation; history suggests that diffuse decision-making, open borders and free speech are the magic ingredients. One thing is clear: any idea that confrontation will be followed by capitulation is misguided. America and its allies must prepare for a far longer contest between open societies and China’s ruthless mix of autocracy, technology and dynamism. By Zanny Minton Beddoes

CONTENT4ALL riceve prestigioso NAB Technology Innovation Award 2020

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 19 maggio 2020

Fincons Group, società di IT business consulting e system integration internazionale, con sedi in Italia, Svizzera, UK, Francia, Germania e US, è fiera di annunciare che CONTENT4LL, progetto di R&D sponsorizzato dalla Commissione Europea, ha vinto il prestigioso NAB Technology Innovation Award.
CONTENT4ALL, finanziato dal programma Horizon 2020 della Commissione Europea con concessione n. 762021, mira all’interpretazione in automatico del linguaggio dei segni con l’utilizzo di nuove tecnologie e algoritmi AI. Fincons Group svolge il ruolo di system integrator e coordinatore del progetto per il consorzio di progetto che include: due istituti di ricerca, la University of Surrey (UK) e il Fraunhofer HHI Research center (DE), due organizzazioni end-user, VRT (BE) e Swiss TXT (CH), e Human Factors Consult (DE).Un breve video introduttivo su CONTENT4ALL è accessibile qui: https://bit.ly/2T5IOvn
Il National Association of Broadcasting con il Technology Innovation Award premia le organizzazioni che sviluppano, tramite la ricerca, tecnologie avanzate con progetti di sviluppo pre-commerciale in ambito ICT. Oltre ad essere un progetto all’avanguardia, CONTENT4ALL ha l’importante obiettivo di supportare i broadcaster che desiderano rendere disponibili il maggior numero di contenuti possibile nel linguaggio dei segni, raggiungendo un’audience più vasta e inclusiva a bassi costi di produzione. La soluzione dunque permette ai broadcaster di adempire alle crescenti richieste normative, come quelle delineate nell’ l’Art.30, 21 della Convenzione delle Nazioni Unite sui diritti delle persone con disabilità.Michele Moretti, Fincons Group CEO, commenta: “Fincons Group ha sempre puntato sull’investimento nell’innovazione come catalizzatore per la crescita. Questo ci ha permesso di sviluppare il nostro offering e di affacciarci sui mercati internazionali con soluzioni all’avanguardia. Siamo orgogliosi di avere vinto con un progetto che unisce la nostra passione per l’innovazione e la responsabilità sociale.”“Amiamo contraddistinguerci per lo sviluppo di soluzioni innovative che nascono direttamente dalle reali esigenze di mercato, in modo da sviluppare soluzioni R&D, persino a livello precompetitivo, che veramente portino beneficio alla comunità e ai nostri clienti. La cooperazione tra partner e la composizione del consorzio, che include due broadcaster, assicura che il progetto risponda a bisogni reali,” aggiunge Francesco Moretti, CEO Fincons.US e Fincons Group Deputy CEO. Per raggiungere questi obiettivi ambiziosi, il team ha sviluppato un workflow integrato all’interno di un ambiente broadcast che riproduce, in tempo reale, l’interprete della lingua dei segni come essere umano realistico virtuale. L’interprete della lingua dei segni può trovarsi in uno studio remoto, mentre il linguaggio dei segni anima l’essere umano virtuale generato presso il broadcaster. La tecnologia si basa su algoritmi di advanced Deep Learning che tracciano i movimenti del corpo, viso e mani derivandone i parametri necessari per animare l’essere umano virtuale. Il risultato finale è un avatar 3D fotorealistico, soprannominato “realatar”, per la sua corrispondenza con la persona reale.

Osservatori Digital Innovation del Politecnico di Milano

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 29 aprile 2020

Nel 2019 la pubblicità online ha raccolto quasi 3,3 miliardi di euro, in crescita del 9% sul 2018 e con una quota di mercato nell’intorno del 40%, dietro solo alla televisione che arriva al 44%. Ma nel 2020 la situazione sarà ben diversa: la decrescita percentuale delle raccolte di Internet e Tv potrebbe infatti essere a doppia cifra, nonostante questi mezzi dall’inizio dell’emergenza sanitaria siano cresciuti ampiamente in termini di audience. Queste alcune delle evidenze emerse dall’Osservatorio Internet Media della School of Management del Politecnico di Milano in occasione del convegno “Internet Advertising: tra creatività e innovazione”. Le restrizioni che impongono gli italiani e gran parte della popolazione mondiale a rimanere in casa hanno aumentato l’utilizzo, e quindi le audience, di tutti i canali televisivi e di tutti i siti online. I dati di utilizzo del digitale nel futuro saranno quindi in forte crescita e non si tornerà a un livello pre-emergenza. Secondo i dati Auditel, tra metà febbraio e inizio aprile, in piena emergenza sanitaria, le audience della Tv lineare tradizionale sono cresciute fino al 40%, con punte anche più alte (oltre +60%) per le fasce più giovani (15-34). Ancora più alta è la crescita della fruizione di contenuti digitali tramite Smart Tv (alcune settimane nell’intorno del +70%). Secondo i dati Comscore, nello stesso periodo, i dati online vedono una crescita importante del tempo speso sui Social network (+69% a inizio aprile rispetto a metà febbraio), instant messaging (+50%) e financial news (+24%). A crescere, soprattutto nelle prime settimane di marzo, è stata la fruizione dei siti di informazione e di intrattenimento (con punte oltre il 50%).
I processi creativi, l’utilizzo delle tecnologie, la conoscenza delle opportunità che il mondo online oggi ci offre sono elementi essenziali per le imprese per poter comunicare con i consumatori. Ma questo momento storico porterà ad un cambiamento dell’intero sistema socio-economico che di conseguenza trasformerà le abitudini e i comportamenti degli utenti. Diventa dunque fondamentale la conoscenza dei “nuovi” comportamenti degli individui, ossia capire in che misura cambieranno i customer journey dei diversi soggetti economici dopo questa emergenza per sviluppare strategie in grado di sostenere la relazione con gli utenti nel lungo periodo, con chiari obiettivi di loyalty. Proprio la creatività potrà giocare un ruolo molto importante per ricostruire questa relazione con il proprio target.Per questo motivo è stata condotta una Ricerca col fine di indagare e comprendere l’approccio delle aziende investitrici all’intero processo creativo con cui vengono effettuate le campagne pubblicitarie. In Italia il 53% delle aziende delega completamente l’intero processo creativo (storytelling + realizzazione creatività) ad agenzie esterne, mentre il 47% sviluppa internamente lo storytelling. Di questo 47%, poco meno della metà si occupa anche della declinazione della singola creatività grazie a unit ad hoc interne, mentre poco più della metà delega la realizzazione della creatività ad agenzie esterne all’azienda. Se invece ci concentriamo solo sulla realizzazione della creatività della singola campagna, la grande maggioranza del campione (79%) ne affida la realizzazione ad agenzie esterne. Sempre più si sta assistendo ad una convergenza tra Media, tecnologia, dati e creatività che si traduce nelle “creatività dinamiche”, ossia la capacità di adattare automaticamente le immagini, i testi e le call to action di una singola creatività in real time per ogni specifico utente. Dalla Ricerca emerge un trend di graduale preferenza verso i nano/micro/mid influencer rispetto alle celebrity. Le imprese italiane dichiarano infatti che tali influencer sono spesso considerati più adatti in termini sia di efficienza rispetto al rischio dell’investimento sia di efficacia, in quanto sono considerati maggiormente «autentici», veri e propri creator caratterizzati da fan base maggiormente qualificate e attive. Questo trend è correlato alla tendenza delle imprese di rivolgersi a nicchie con cui comunicare in modo accurato e profilato. (fonte: School of Management del Politecnico di Milano)

The first Global Internet Café Innovation Summit

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 11 dicembre 2019

On Nov.20, the very first “Global Internet Café Innovation Summit” was conducted in Shanghai Himalayan Art Center. As the host of this summit, Wanyoo has announced the “Overseas Business Partner Alliance Program”, shared the experiences and methods which were accumulated over the past few years to the industry insiders, how to pursue the expansion and growth of overseas business together to achieve the mutual benefits。
The <2019 Global and China Internet Café Industry White Paper> was also published in this summit, which states the eSport game will accelerate the Internet Café converting to eSport studio and diverse the profit model soon. The founder and chairman of “Play for Dreams” Corporation, Mr. Huang Feng, also believes that the Internet Café has been embedded into the eSport industry chains deeply, including the theme activities, game event sponsor, team spokesperson, game relevant products development or cooperation with movie and TV episodes series. Internet café has been merged into eSport game joint development and is uptrending as the mainstream of the industry, in the meantime, the globalization of eSports is expediting as well. Given eSports becoming a hot topic in the world, the development of Internet Café, which is closely related to eSports industry, is also gradually improving in overseas markets.
Wanyoo began to explore the overseas market in 2014, opening its first overseas store in Sydney, Australia. Up to now, Wanyoo, with opening more than 800 stores worldwide, covering 83 cities in the world, include Sydney, Vancouver, New York, Singapore, Melbourne and London etc., the number of global members exceeding 16 million, is considered as the pioneer and leading player of China’s Internet Cafe industry.
Although the first Internet café was founded in the UK in 1994, the Chinese Internet café business model is actually leading the evolution of the global Internet Cafe industry. In comparison, Internet café model abroad seems to be simple and plain, both hardware and software fell behind, and lack of branding and standardization in management and operation, which cannot meet the complex needs of game players, social networking and eSport game.
Based on the overseas exploring practice of Wanyoo, besides empowering the overseas studios, Wanyoo also offers the training campus to support the Chinese eSports team. For instance, during Ti8, the Chinese Dota team was taken training in Wanyoo Vancouver studio; London studio was the official training base for 4AM,OMG,17,CL during the FGS global summit. On the other hand, Wanyoo is aiming to connect among the global game players and establishes a global eSports game platform without time and space limitation. Till October 2019, Wanyoo’s own game campaign program- Wanyoo Champion Arena, has successfully been held for 9 times. This June “Wanyoo Champion Arena LOL Global City Game ” attracted over ten thousand players around the world, the players from New York, London, Sydney etc., gathered in Shanghai, China, competed for the world championship, S8 world champion IG team came to field to cheer up the players too.

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 13 novembre 2019

Purpose of capital increase: Accelerate the miniaturization and functionality enhancement of the company’s sensor through semiconductorization, in order to expand the digital olfactory market. The compact odor imaging sensor developed by Aroma Bit is unique in that, unlike conventional gas sensors that can only detect specific substances, it is able to generate a visualization pattern from various odor inputs, similar to an animal’s sense of smell. Recently, there has been an increase in the number of inquiries and business discussions coming from both domestic and overseas customers, covering a wide range of possible applications beyond the company’s initial assumptions, including food and agriculture, daily necessities, cosmetics, industrial machinery, robotics, mobility, monitoring and health care, marketing, and more. This is proof of the company’s advanced technology and first-mover advantages.With the July 23, 2019 announcement of full-scale development of the ultimate next-generation compact odor sensor, which is small, inexpensive, and has high odor resolution (a next-generation CMOS-type odor imaging sensor capable of achieving odor resolution as high as a dog’s nose, on a 1 mm square), approaches from technology equipment manufacturers and IT companies around the world regarding collaboration projects, not only for odor sensor hardware, but also for the utilization of digital odor data, are increasing rapidly. Furthermore, the sense of smell is the least digitized of the five senses, and the market for digital olfactory technology is about to enter the takeoff phase.Through this third-party allocation of new shares, Aroma Bit plans to use their technical strength to achieve further miniaturization and increased functionality of their compact odor imaging sensor, and strengthen development for mass production. In addition, the company plans to strengthen and expand its management system to support the development and enhancement of new products and services that leverage its odor sensor hardware as well as the world’s first digital odor database, and to expand its sales and marketing systems globally.Aroma Bit will also continue to pursue the company’s vision of “Enriching society by achieving a world where odors and aromas are digitized through odor imaging technology.”
Today, Aroma Bit released their “Brand Vision Movie”, which portrays future life where smell is visualized – something that even Hollywood has not envisioned. Aroma Bit today released their Brand Vision Movie, which imagines the future brought about by technology that can visualize odors and convert them into data. A top-tier Japanese creative team has created the world’s first video that envisions the future that Aroma Bit aims to create, where the world of odors and aromas is digitized and visualized.

Mavenir Demonstrates 5G O-RAN Interface at Center of Innovation in Stockholm

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 6 ottobre 2019

Mavenir, the industry’s only end-to-end cloud-native Network Software Provider and a leader in accelerating software network transformation for communications service providers (CSPs), has successfully demonstrated the transmission of data traffic over O-RAN interface in a 5G New Radio during the official opening of the Center of Innovation in Stockholm on Wednesday, October 2. The Center focuses on Mavenir’s innovative and open virtualized Radio Access Network (vRAN) development, both S/W and H/W, as well as innovation on next generation platforms for 5G and IoT for Service Providers, Industry and Enterprises.The successful transmission of data at the physical layer demonstrated the implementation in a 5G New Radio of the O-RAN split 7.2 open interface between a Distributed Unit (O-DU) and a simulated Remote Radio Unit (RRU) (O-RU). The DU was implemented on an x86-based architecture standard COTS server and displayed maximum speed for the chosen transmission of 777 Mbps.“The relevance of this demonstration is that the O-RAN interface is a straightforward and robust interface to implement in 5G with standard commercial off-the-shelf equipment,” said Mikael Rylander, SVP/GM RAN Business Unit. “This means we will be able to stimulate a full ecosystem of Radio Unit suppliers, which will inject new blood into the market and support the vision of OpenRAN in transforming the mobile network economics.” This first demonstration, shown live in the presence of many customers of the Swedish Mobile Communications Industry and executives of several enterprise technology partnerships, illustrated how Mavenir’s Stockholm Innovation Center will drive Mavenir’s disruptive approach for next generation 4G and 5G networks with fully virtualized
RAN.
