Singapore BIGO Technology Integrates Artificial Intelligence Into Communication Apps

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 14 dicembre 2019

Leading technology company from Singapore BIGO Technology (BIGO), the holding company for popular new age communication platforms like Bigo Live (Live Streaming), Likee (Short-form Videos), and imo (Video Communication) has shared that they use Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a foundation to create a more engaging, world-class immersive experience for their users.
Bigo Live, the popular live broadcasting app allows users to share real-time experiences with their friends. The app also allows viewers to comment or send virtual gifts to their favorite broadcasters to show their support. Most of Bigo Live’s broadcasters use the platform to showcase their talents including dancing, singing, magic tricks and more. Bigo Live broadcasters can sometimes use this platform as a revenue source, transforming the virtual gifts sent in support by fans into cash.Likee, which has garnered popularity very quickly is a short-form video platform with unique features that allow users to do “magic” tricks like disappearing, change the color of their hair, apply different styles of makeup, take on a different character and use fun stickers to animate their videos. Likee won the Google Awards in 2017 for “Best App of the Year”, and is one of the “Most Downloaded Apps” in 2019.Together, these platforms service over 300 million active users on a monthly basis in more than 150 countries. In order to keep up with endless data being transmitted, AI is particularly important in deciphering, segregating, and analyzing large pockets of data, with key focus in the distinct areas of (1) Deepening user engagement, (2) Enhancing user experience, (3) Recommending feed to users, and (4) Ensuring a holistic and clean platform environment. With 509 technological patents awaiting approval and 105 approved patents under its belt, it is evident that BIGO’s central interest is a heavy investment in the area and the development of AI; ensuring that they stay ahead of the game.

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 20 luglio 2019

8 to 10 November in Singapore. How can physicians in Asia keep abreast of so many rapidly evolving advances in heart health? A new scientific congress is designed to help.
The European Society of Cardiology (ESC), the world’s largest organisation of healthcare professionals dedicated to fighting heart disease, is joining forces with the Asian Pacific Society of Cardiology (APSC) and the Asean Federation of Cardiology (AFC) to launch ESC ASIA with APSC & ASC in Singapore this November.“Each year, the ESC alone reviews more than 11,000 abstracts on new cardiovascular science,” said Prof. Michel Komajda, Chair of the Organising Committee. “This new congress will showcase the very latest, most important lessons so that physicians can provide their heart patients with the best possible care.”This cutting-edge event will help explain the new, all important ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines on Diabetes, Pre-diabetes & Cardiovascular Diseases; Acute Pulmonary Embolism; Chronic Coronary Syndromes; and Dyslipidaemias. In addition, many of the key messages from ESC Congress 2019 in Paris will also be discussed in an Asian Pacific context.
This new congress could not be more timely. According to the World Health Organisation, cardiovascular disease is world’s leading cause of death, killing an estimated 31% of all people. 1 In Singapore alone, it claims 21,000 lives every year. This pioneering event builds on ESC’s reputation in the region as a renowned and trusted learned society. Tens of thousands of healthcare professionals in Asia already turn to the ESC for its prestigious journals, scientific congresses and a variety of unique membership opportunities.“The ESC is the only global society that covers the full spectrum of cardiology through its many subspecialty communities in Asia,” said Prof. Komajda. “This new event offers physicians of all sorts – from internists and endocrinologists to pulmonologists and cardiologists – the opportunity to exchange ideas with some the most respected cardiovascular researchers from Europe and the Asia Pacific region.”

Port of Singapore is recognized as the busiest container transshipment hub in the world. The strategic geographical location of the country serves as a gateway to ASEAN countries and the rest of the world, and has a connection with more than 600 ports in over 120 countries. Owing to the excellent quality and services, world-class infrastructure, and consistent R&D activities, the maritime sector has gained traction over the past few years. Despite the decreased trend in the container volume of the major transshipment hubs, like Hong Kong, and fierce competition from neighboring ports in Malaysia, the container traffic at the Singapore ports reached 33.7 million TEUs in 2017, which represented an increase of 8.9%, as compared to 2016. Similarly, the total cargo throughput of the Singaporean ports had registered 627.69 million metric ton in 2017, an increase of 5.8%, as compared to 2016, in which bulk oil cargo recorded a growth of 5.3% in 2017.

It is expected that the port capacity will be increased by 50% upon the completion of the expansion process. Additionally, the ports will be able to handle the mega-container ships. To reduce the shipping costs and gain productivity, shipping companies are coming up with mega-alliances. The ports with the capability of handling the mega-alliances gain competitive advantage.

Cube Temple: An ethereal creation of wire mesh in Singapore

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 11 settembre 2018

Singapore Dal 13 al 16 settembre 2018, presso la sede di Cargo 39 (39 Keppel Road #03-03, Tanjong Pagar Distripark), l’artista darà vita ad uno spazio dinamico e iridescente, in cui diventerà possibile sperimentare una dimensione eterea, mentre la luce favorirà un’interpretazione dell’opera soggetta a diversi stati d’animo.
La ricerca di Edoardo Tresoldi, uno dei giovani artisti più influenti d’Europa (“Forbes”, 2017), recentemente incoronato al Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California, si caratterizza per l’uso della rete metallica. A differenza dell’architettura convenzionale, che racchiude lo spazio restituendo un paesaggio modificato dall’uomo, la sua struttura essenziale abbraccia il contesto e accoglie la presenza umana dando vita a un’inedita realtà esperienziale. Una dimensione eterea in costante dialogo con il paesaggio, inteso come contaminazione di linguaggi culturali, sociali e identitari, le cui dinamiche diventano parti costituenti dell’opera. L’esposizione è realizzata in collaborazione con Ambasciata d’Italia a Singapore, ICCS e Regione Emilia-Romagna.

Speakers include George Asgari, regional head of customer engineering at Google; Saranya Sriram, cloud solution architect lead – APAC partnerships at Microsoft; and Hajime Harvey Koyanagi, managing director, Tokyo, Japan at Dentsu. Additional Asian firms present include Dairy Farm, represented by Finance Director Tom van der Lee; and Philip Kent, executive vice president of MSIG, among others.Flying in for #UiPathTogether Singapore are some of UiPath’s top executives, including Ashim Gupta, chief customer success officer, who in his previous role at GE pioneered RPA within the company; Boris Krumrey, chief robotics officer, who leads the product and integration design of the company’s RPA and AI technologies; and Bobby Patrick, chief marketing officer, responsible for global branding, product marketing, communications and demand generation.Globally, the RPA market was valued at US $271 million in 2016 and is expected to grow to US $1.2 billion by 2021 at a compound annual growth rate of 36 percent. Nowhere is a technology such as RPA more relevant than for a country such as Singapore, given its need for productivity growth and smart city ambitions, and UiPath has seen over 2,000 percent growth here over the past year.The region’s finance hub has a highly-developed financial services industry which is drawn to the city due, among other reasons, to its educated workforce. RPA is able to automate many of the repetitive, rules-based tasks that bankers currently do, freeing them up to do more high value work. This not only increases productivity but reduces the cost of business, further improving Singapore’s competitive edge. The same can be applied across many other industries, from manufacturing to insurance, and to other nations in the region looking to rise up the economic value chain.Significantly, though, RPA can drive a city’s smart city ambitions. Innovations from self-driving cars to better healthcare provision rely on data and the smart analysis and application of that data.
