The VIII Global Energy Prize Summit in Germany

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 2 aprile 2019

The VIII Global Energy Prize Summit will take place at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany, on April 10, 2019. Under the heading “Energy in the new technological cycle” world-leading scientists, politicians and industry experts from 13 countries will meet to discuss the most pressing energy and climate challenges of today. Within the framework of this topic, a panel session and several round tables will be held at the Summit. World experts share the view that humanity is on the threshold of a new technological cycle, which entails changes in the main spheres of society. Undoubtedly, the transition to a new stage is not possible without efficient, reliable and safe energy. Are the world community and modern infrastructure facilities ready for large-scale transformations? The participants of the panel session “Energy in the new technological cycle” will consider the obstacles to transitioning to a new paradigm, the trends of the future of energy, and how humanity will benefit from this next industrial revolution. In addition, experts will identify ways to achieve universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy sources for all, which the UN defines as one of the key goals of sustainable mankind`s development. According to the UN, one in five people worldwide does not have access to electricity. More than a billion people, mostly in rural areas, suffer from “energy hunger”. The round table “Energy requirements for sustainable development” will consider the environmental, economic, and social aspects of achieving global energy goals and the role of international energy cooperation in this regard.The need to determine these factors today is dictated, among other things, by the fact that the scale of change and the complexity of implementing the solutions that the current industrial revolution will require is different from previous global transformations. This revolution is characterized by full automation of production, the growing role of robotics and artificial intelligence, as well as the increasing interconnection between people and machines. The introduction of cyber-physical systems and the digitalization of production processes will not only lead to significant changes in traditional industries, but also to the creation of entirely new sectors of the economy.Do we expect the revolution, or do we already live in it? What changes do we need to prepare for? Will robots and unmanned equipment be able to replace humans? Which projects of the future are already being implemented today? The experts at the round table on the fourth industrial revolution will answer these questions, among others, and consider the impact of the new technological reality on the energy sector. “Our generation is witnessing global technological changes that will affect all spheres of society. The scale of these changes is comparable to the invention of the steam engine, the first computer technology, the world wide web. We live in a period of transition. Technology is changing faster than ever, creating new challenges, including in the energy sector. We need to be prepared to accept the demands of the new era. For these purposes, it is necessary to develop a common strategy of action. I am convinced that our Summit as a permanent communication platform will help to find solutions to these issues and will contribute to the development of energy dialogue, in which the leading role is assigned to scientists-developers of advanced technologies,” said the Acting President of the Global Energy Association Alexander Ignatov.In addition to the discussion part of the Summit, the Global Energy Association will also present its new Global Energy Youth Program. Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) has previously expressed interest in the project and is already selecting its students to participate in it. The best researchers of the KIT will present their scientific work to the Global Energy Association`s experts and will receive meaningful assessments of their works. The authors of the best projects will get a chance to be one of the first to join the Global Energy Youth Program.

GC&E Systems Group to Host 2019 Converged Security Summit

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 16 febbraio 2019

3rd Annual Converged Security Summit (CSS) on February 28, 2019 at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. CSS 2019 focuses on the convergence of information, cyber, and physical security systems and the criticality of viewing them as an integrated platform to be protected from evolving vulnerabilities and risks. With the Internet of Things driving the connectivity and integration of an ever-growing number of devices to our networks; the proliferation of IP-based physical security devices such as cameras and access control systems; and the storage of access lists, policies, and procedures on our systems, avenues of attack aimed at a multitude of enterprise assets is expanding at an alarming rate. Reliance on technology alone is not enough to secure these assets, and corporate executives are finding that responsibility for cyber security compliance falls squarely on their shoulders. Viewing information, cyber, and physical security as separate organizational or operational entities almost guarantees an organization’s inability to secure any of them. What must an organization do to protect its valuable data, systems, and people?
CSS 2019 brings together three thought leaders within the information, cyber, and physical security industries to provide their perspectives, insights, and recommendations regarding the best means to protect our organizational assets (information, intellectual and physical property, customers and employees). Additionally, more than 40 nationally-recognized, best-in-class security and IT vendors will be in attendance to demonstrate and discuss their unique products and service offerings.CSS 2019 is the not-to-be-missed security event of 2019 providing practical information that can be applied to your business or operations immediately while providing the opportunity to network and speak first hand with industry-recognized, subject-matter experts, and best-in-class vendors.

Summit sul clima in Polonia

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 5 dicembre 2018

Katowice (Polonia) In apertura del Summit sul clima (COP24) in Polonia, Greenpeace ricorda l’allarme lanciato dalla comunità scientifica: abbiamo solo dodici anni per salvare il clima del nostro Pianeta. Per questo il Summit di Katowice non può che avere obiettivi ambiziosi.Quest’anno, il Summit sul Clima arriva sulla scia di avvertimenti chiarissimi lanciati dal Panel di scienziati dell’ONU sul Clima (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change – IPCC), dall’Organizzazione Meteorologica Internazionale (WMO) e dal Piano Ambientale dell’ONU (UNEP):
– Se l’incremento delle temperature dovesse continuare al ritmo corrente, il riscaldamento climatico dovrebbe superare la soglia di 1,5°C tra il 2030 e il 2052: ciò rende assolutamente urgente il taglio delle emissioni di gas serra;
– I livelli di CO2 hanno raggiunto valori record: la stima è di 405,5 parti per milione (ppm) nel 2017: un valore che non si registrava in atmosfera negli ultimi 3/5 milioni di anni. Nel 2015 in atmosfera c’erano solo 400,1 ppm;
– Il 2018 sia avvia a essere il quarto anno più caldo di sempre: i venti anni più caldi sono stati tutti registrati negli ultimi 22 anni;
– Il rapporto “UNEP Emission Gap” rivela che i Paesi devono aumentare di cinque volte le riduzioni di emissioni di gas serra per centrare l’obiettivo 1,5°C.
A fronte di queste notizie negative ce ne sono però altre che ci danno speranze:
– L’Unione europea ha ripreso una forte leadership sul clima e ha proposto un obiettivo “emissioni zero” al 2050. Tuttavia, per restare entro 1,5°C questo obiettivo deve essere anticipato al 2040;
– I Capi di Stato di 18 Paesi europei, tra cui il Presidente della Repubblica Sergio Mattarella, hanno firmato un appello che chiede a tutti i Paesi di rivedere i loro piani nazionali sul clima, alla luce delle ultime evidenze scientifiche;
– Governi regionali, città e aziende forniscono ai leader del Pianeta esempi sempre più forti di piani ambiziosi a difesa del clima. Ad esempio, poche settimane fa Generali Assicurazioni ha notevolmente migliorato la sua policy sul clima distanziandosi dal carbone.

Sarà AR Market, primo marketplace italiano per la Realtà Aumentata (, a rappresentare l’Italia in questo settore all’imminente Web Summit di Lisbona (5-8 novembre) che Forbes ha definito l’evento tecnologico più importante al mondo.
