Audio Network Partners with Musiio to Harness the Power of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 7 settembre 2019

Audio Network Limited, one of the world’s largest independent creators and publishers of original high-quality music for use in film, television, advertising and digital media, continues its focus on technology by partnering with Musiio to explore the power of AI to improve customer service and delivery.This industry first will equip the global music company with an added interface to their existing search platform, to make their catalogue of over 170,000 tracks even more discoverable, whilst keeping the human touch that Audio Network has always been known for.
Singapore-based Musiio provides a new way of “listening” to music at scale, easily searching up to one million tracks in under two seconds and supercharging a team of music researchers to increase their efficiency in responding to music briefs.“AI has been on the fringes of the music industry for the last few years, with talk of labels signing algorithms. But recently, more commercial and practical uses of this powerful computing technology have begun to surface,” explained Musiio CEO and co-founder Hazel Savage. “This deal demonstrates how AI and technology companies like ours can work with a company like Audio Network to protect everything that is great about the music industry, the personal touch, the knowledge of experts and also to create tools that let the team step up to the challenge of a huge and fast-growing industry.” Being able to search an entire catalogue of music in seconds lets a company like Audio Network keep up with demand. In addition, searching deeper within a catalogue helps maximise track usage, to bring an added layer of opportunity to the artists and composers creating the recordings.

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 10 agosto 2019

Milano. È Instagram il social network più colpito dal fenomeno del Cyberbullismo. A confermarlo i dati del Centro Studi di ReputationUP, società specializzata nella gestione della reputazione online,Il cyberbullismo è un fenomeno che negli ultimi 15 anni è drammaticamente cresciuto, come dimostrano anche i dati delle ricerche effettuate su Google per l’argomento “Cyberbullismo”.Per elaborare i dati sul Cyberbullismo, il Centro Studi di ReputationUP ha utilizzato un software proprietario di Intelligenza Artificiale che monitora la rete in base a determinati hashtag o parole chiavi.Oltre al monitoraggio, e quindi al numero di menzioni, il software di ReputationUP (reputationup.com/it) è anche in grado di calcolare il sentimento (positivo, negativo e neutrale) e le emozioni (gioia, sorpresa, tristezza, rabbia, disgusto, paura) di tutte le interazioni che avvengono intorno alla parola chiave o hashtag.Il Centro Studi ha poi confrontato i dati da loro ottenuticon quelli dell’Istat, del Miur e del Ministero della Famiglia, per ricavarne un’analisi quanto più accurata, specifica e attendibile possibile.Dal monitoraggio di ReputationUp si evince che Instagram è il social più afflitto dagli episodi di cyberbullismo, con il 42% dei casi, a seguire Facebook con il 37% dei casi, Snapchat con il 31%, Whatsapp con il 12%, Youtube con i 10% e infine Twitter con il 9% degli episodi di bullismo online.
Le conseguenze del Cyberbullismo sulle vittime sono devastanti, come evidenziato dalla approfondita ricerca di ReputationUP.Il bullismo via internet provoca enorme ansia sociale nel 41% dei casi studiati, fenomeni depressivi nel 37% dei casi, pensieri suicidi nel 26% dei casi, poi l’autolesionismo al 25%, stop dell’utilizzo dei social nel 24% degli episodi interessati. Infine il bullismo via internet provoca assenze scolastiche nel 20% delle volte, disturbi alimentari nel 14% dei casi e abuso di alcol e droghe nel 9% dei casi.

Public consultation on the European Observation and Data Network

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 23 Mag 2019

The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) contributes to the EU’s integrated maritime policy. It was set up as a flagship project to prepare a seamless multi-resolution digital seabed map of European waters by 2020. Following the Green Paper “Marine Knowledge 2020” It had been estimated that public bodies in European countries were spending over one billion euro a year in observing the seas and oceans including work by hydrographic organisations, geological surveys, scientists and environmental agencies. However, scientists and engineers who wanted to use the data had encountered that they were difficult to find and were hampered by restrictive usage conditions and poor interoperability. Data from different sources had different baselines, different formats, different nomenclature and different standards. The Commission Communication on “Innovation in the Blue Economy” set out a roadmap for replacing the fragmented, inaccessible and inhomogeneous repositories of marine data in the EU by a sustainable process whereby data are easily accessible, interoperable and free of restrictions on use. EMODnet is now operational.

Health Net Joins Manifest MedEx Health Data Network

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 18 aprile 2019

California is taking another step toward a modern medical information infrastructure with the addition of Health Net, LLC (Health Net) to the state’s largest nonprofit health data network, Manifest MedEx (MX). Health Net has more than 3,000 employees and 85,000 providers in its network, serving more than three million members in its commercial and government-sponsored health plans. The addition of Health Net follows the recent announcements of AHMC Healthcare, Heritage California, Hill Physicians, Scripps Health, and Stanford Health Care as MX participants.Manifest MedEx is a utility-style network for health information across the state. The data securely delivered to health organizations means providers are notified when their patients are admitted or discharged from the hospital, can track lab values across various facilities, and can proactively reach out to patients requiring additional support. As the health sector transitions to value-based care, the availability of this kind of information is increasingly crucial.Health Net was recently recognized by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, earning four out of five stars in its annual Star Ratings report. The report includes dozens of quality-of-care measures and member experience ratings for Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plan enrollees. In addition, the National Committee for Quality Assurance elevated Health Net’s accreditation rating from “Accredited” to “Commendable” for two of its plans: Health Net of California, Inc.’s commercial HMO/POS health plan and Health Net Life Insurance Company of California’s commercial PPO health plan.Manifest MedEx is working quickly to help California providers access a new $50 million pool of state and federal funding to help cover the cost of participating in health information networks in the year ahead. The nonprofit network has newly rolled out an upgraded technology platform with a focus on scalable data services for the rapidly growing network of 200+ participants.

Verizon Turns on World’s First 5G Network

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 ottobre 2018

NEW YORK – The very first commercial 5G network on the globe goes live today. Verizon’s 5G Home network, providing 5G broadband internet service, is officially live today for consumers in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento. Installations of 5G Home began this morning for “First on 5G” customers in those cities, with a resident of Houston, Clayton Harris, becoming the first 5G customer in the world.
Built on Verizon’s proprietary, pre-standard 5G network, Verizon 5G Home is the next generation of home broadband internet service that blankets your entire house in super-fast Wi-Fi.
“The world’s first commercial 5G service is here,” said Ronan Dunne, President, Verizon Wireless. “We’ve formed incredible partnerships with many of the world’s leading technology companies, the international technical standards bodies, public officials, developers and our own customers to drive the ecosystem 5G forward, faster than most had predicted. And now, actual customers. It’s been an incredible journey . . . and we’re just at the starting line.”
“First on 5G” members – early adopters of 5G technology – get exclusive perks including 5G Home service free for the first three months (after that introductory period, current Verizon Wireless customers with a qualifying smartphone plan will pay $50 per month for the service, while non-Verizon Wireless customers will pay $70 per month), free white glove installation and equipment, and early access to new services, including 5G mobility. 5G Home customers will also get YouTube TV free for the first three months and a free Apple TV 4K or Google Chromecast Ultra device at installation.

Niman Ranch to Double Farmer Network in 10 Years

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 12 settembre 2018

Niman Ranch, a leader in sustainable agriculture and humane livestock practices, today celebrated the 20th Annual Hog Farmer Appreciation Dinner in Des Moines by pledging to double their network and add more than 750 independent family farmers and ranchers in the next ten years. The company committed to supporting 1500 sustainable family farms in the next decade. The announcement will be followed by a recruitment effort to add additional farmers.“It took us 20 years to get here and now we’ll double it in ten. We have the opportunity to break away from being captive to the commodity markets,” said Jeff Tripician, general manager, Niman Ranch. “We’ve always said, ‘One farmer at a time’ and that is and was a victory for every rural community. Now we’ll do more. The market is ready and there are farmers out there that are ready for the stability that a premium meat company like Niman Ranch can provide.” As part of the announcement, Niman Ranch will begin a recruitment effort and unveiled a first of a kind Gilt and Boar Gift program for young farmers, recent college graduates and those that have served in the military. More than $300,000 in sows have already been made available to qualifying individuals who are looking to get started in farming, grow their herds, improve their genetics and ultimately make more money. The Gilt Stocking Program was part of 16 reasons to Be a Niman Ranch Farmer Partner that was unveiled before the dinner. Niman Ranch is currently paying independent family farmers approximately double the market and promising to do much more in the decade to come.“In a time of depressed hog prices, tariffs, trade wars, and a slow outlook for hog futures, we are going to grow,” said Tripician. “Our market is stronger than ever, our customers are more committed than they have ever been, and we must keep up with consumer demand.” Niman Ranch began hog production in 1995 with one farmer, Paul Willis, from Thornton, IA. Since that time the company has expanded to 629 hog farmers in 12 states. Today, the Niman Ranch farmer is significantly younger than the national average. The U.S. Census Bureau reports that the average age of farmers has steadily increased to 58-years old over the last 30 years, contrary to the Niman Ranch farmer’s average age of 47.Part of the ongoing partnership between Niman Ranch and the farmer is a yearly scholarship for farm families and their children to go to college without significant debt so they can return to the farm. This year the Next Generation Scholarship Fund became a formal 501C3 and raised more than $150,000 from more than 60 donors – giving out scholarship awards to more than 32 students. Two of the students received $10,000 as part of a special Phyllis Willis Pioneer Award and the original Dave Serfling Scholarship.

Trusted Computing Group Releases Network Equipment Security Guidance

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 14 febbraio 2018

Trusted Computing Group (TCG) today announced new guidance and an architects guide to secure network equipment. At Mobile World Congress Feb. 26-March 1, TCG members Infineon Technologies and Juniper Networks will demonstrate these recommendations in Stand 6C4, Hall 6.
Recent attacks such as CherryBlossom and Marai have exposed some networks and data, resulting in significant data loss and impact to business. TCG’s new guidance and architects guide, developed with input from network equipment makers and their suppliers, offer designers and developers of network equipment, including routers, switches and firewalls, specific recommendations and best practices to secure against compromise. Strong hardware security enabled by the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) ensures that equipment is tamper-resistant and protected against a variety of attacks.The Mobile World Congress demo will showcase the Juniper Networks® SRX320 Services Gateway protected with the Infineon OPTIGA™ TPM. The TPM prevents physical and logical tampering of the router and securely stores an encrypted hash. If the router configuration is updated but not authorized, the router will not boot, thereby preventing a potential attack. This is just one of the 12 use cases described in the guidance document. The companies also will discuss implementation of the guidance and TPM in a webcast on Feb. 21, 2018.TCG recognizes that network equipment is shipped as a closed embedded system with security provided by the unit as a whole; equipment must boot and operate without manual intervention; and the equipment itself typically should not have the ability to hide or mask its own identity. As with many embedded and industrial systems, network equipment typically has a long life cycle. Recommendations offered by TCG and members include:Devices should provide a cryptographic device identity based on IEEE 802.1AR and use the TPM to protect keys. Cryptographic identity can provide a reliable way to identify remote devices for applications involving device management, configuration and authentication. The TPM can be used to protect confidential data, such as VPN keys in network equipment TPM-based attestation can offer assurance to the integrity of software running on network equipment Use of the TPM’s random number generator can enhance the strength of cryptographic protocols by providing additional entropy Implementing these recommendations can raise the bar for network equipment security and substantially increases the difficulty for attackers who want to undermine this security.
