Improving data exchange between EU information systems

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 18 aprile 2019

New measures to improve data exchange between EU information systems to manage borders, security and migration were adopted by MEPs.The new rules will make EU information systems used in security, border and migration management interoperable enabling data exchange between the systems. This will facilitate the tasks of border guards, migration officers, police officers and judicial authorities by providing them with more systematic and faster access to various EU security and border-control information systems.The main elements of the new legislation are:
European search portal allowing simultaneous searches, rather than searching each system individually;
Shared biometric matching service for cross-matching fingerprints and facial images from several systems;
Common identity repository providing biographical information such as dates of birth and passport numbers for more reliable identification;
Multiple identity detector, detecting whether a person is registered under multiple identities in different databases.
Furthermore, proper safeguards will be in place to protect fundamental rights and access to data.
The systems covered by the new rules would include the Schengen Information System, Eurodac, the Visa Information System (VIS) and three new systems: the European Criminal Records System for Third Country Nationals (ECRIS-TCN), the Entry/Exit System (EES) and the European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS).The rules on interoperability between EU information systems focusing on borders and visa were adopted by 511 to 123, 9 abstentions. The legislation on interoperability between EU information systems focusing on police and judicial cooperation, asylum and migration was approved 510 to 130, 9 abstentions.The new rules have already been agreed upon by the Parliament and Council negotiators in February. After the formal approval of the Council, member states will have two years to adopt the new rules.

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 24 febbraio 2019

Offshore regions are one of the major sources for oil and gas production as the reserves in the offshore segment, which are estimated to be vast, largely remain unexplored. Therefore, the need to meet this increase in fuel demand is spurring major oil and gas companies to invest in E&P projects. The need to meet the increase in demand for energy for both export and domestic consumption in the region is driving the growth of offshore oil and gas activities, which, in turn; will support the growth of the FPS market in Americas during the forecast period.

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.

FotoFinder Systems: l’intelligenza artificiale rivoluziona il rilevamento del tumore della pelle

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 11 gennaio 2019

L’intelligenza artificiale (IA) è attualmente sulla bocca di tutti. Gli esperti dicono che le aziende devono concentrarsi sui tre aspetti dell’IA per avere un ruolo importante nel settore: le ultime conoscenze di programmazione, l’importanza dei dati e l’integrazione dell’IA nei flussi di lavoro esistenti. FotoFinder Systems unisce questi aspetti chiave già oggi. Come pioniere, l’azienda high-tech è un leader nell’integrazione dell’IA nella tecnologia per la diagnosi del cancro della pelle. Con il nuovo software esperto Moleanalyzer pro, i dermatologi sono in grado di valutare i nevi con l’IA, e i risultati confermano una precisione estremamente elevata. Moleanalyzer pro offre ai medici la possibilità di confermare le loro diagnosi con varie tecniche di valutazione. Per la prima volta, è possibile combinare l’esperienza specializzata con l’IA e ricevere inoltre una seconda opinione – basta un clic del mouse – da celebri esperti internazionali di oncologia cutanea.Moleanalyzer pro funziona con l’apprendimento approfondito, il “deep learning”: l’abilità umana di apprendere da esempi ed esperienze viene trasferita al computer. A questo scopo, la rete neurale convoluzionale è stata addestrata con la raccolta attualmente più grande di immagini dermatoscopiche, compresa la diagnosi corrispondente. Il successo dell’algoritmo è dovuto al continuo “accrescimento” dovuto ai tanti anni di utile collaborazione con medici di tutto il mondo. Grazie alla sempre maggiore esperienza e alle sue proprie regole autonome, l’algoritmo è in grado di distinguere tra lesioni benigne e maligne. Il risultato è un punteggio che supporta la valutazione del rischio di entrambe le tipologie di lesioni cutanee, melanocitarie e non-melanocitarie. Tra breve, questo “Score IA” sarà disponibile ai medici anche su dispositivi mobili.
Stando allo studio rappresentativo “Man against machine” (“Uomo contro macchina”), l’algoritmo di apprendimento approfondito ha dimostrato una sensibilità straordinariamente elevata identificando correttamente il 95% dei tumori cutanei maligni. Nel gruppo di confronto, gli esperti – 58 dermatologi da 17 paesi – hanno correttamente identificato l’86,6% delle lesioni maligne. L’algoritmo ha mostrato anche una specificità elevata in modo affidabile, identificando correttamente come benigni l’82,5% dei nevi, mentre gli esperti ne avevano identificato come benigni il 71,3%.Per quanto sia affascinante, l’IA non può sostituire l’esperienza umana quando si tratta di tumore della pelle. Alla fine, la decisione sul da farsi spetta al medico. In caso di dubbio, Moleanalyzer pro offre un servizio di seconda opinione da specialisti di tumore della pelle di fama internazionale per confermare la diagnosi.

Civil Liberties MEPs criticise member states slowness in setting up their PNR systems

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 2 febbraio 2017

european commissionCivil Liberties MEPs criticised on Tuesday EU countries for their slowness in setting up their national PNR systems. The new directive on the use of Passenger Name Records (PNR) for the fight against terrorism and other serious crime was approved in April 2016, following years of discussion among the co-legislators. Member States have until May 2018 to transpose it to national legislation.
According to the European Commission, at the end of 2016, only four countries had both functional or almost functional PNR systems in place as well as the necessary legislation providing for the collection or processing of the data. Twelve countries were in various stages of development, while the eleven remaining are still at a “relatively early stage”.The Commission has so far provided national authorities with €51.8 million of EU funds to develop PNR related projects and has proposed to provide an additional €70 million to continue assisting on the development of the national systems.

Telcos are feeling the pressure to offer more robust services, become digital service providers, and even collaborate with third-party service providers; however, they are limited by legacy revenue management systems.According to the latest Ovum report*, 60% of telcos state they have 50 or more revenue management systems supporting operations. Over the next year, telcos will focus on upgrading their revenue management systems through major transformation projects, and will focus on restructuring roaming tariffs, consolidating systems, and adding convergence and real-time charging capabilities.In its “Telecoms Billing Market Landscape: Challenges and Priorities” report, Ovum discusses the results of the survey, assessing the challenges that telcos are facing with their existing billing systems and their priorities for selecting a new billing solution and vendor.Chantel Cary, author of the report and Ovum analyst, commented: “The telecoms industry now has to move at Internet speed. Customers are always online or interacting with a connected device and this is changing their expectations of their telco service providers.”
Telcos, however, are hindered by legacy systems that are incapable of handling the new demands of the industry. The next-gen telco will be expected to offer a wide array of physical and virtual goods and services from third-party providers; dynamically change service settings, tariffs, and pricing bundles in real time for different subscriber types; and provide this information on the same bill.
“For telcos to get to this point, they will need to make significant investments into improving their revenue management systems; therefore, we anticipate approximately 15% of telcos’ overall IT budget over the next 18 months to be allocated toward revenue management systems,” said Cary.As telcos begin to upgrade and replace components of revenue management systems, they will be specifically looking for solutions that provide essential capabilities such as convergence of fixed, mobile, physical, and virtual services, and subscriber types; real-time charging capabilities for postpaid subscribers; scalability; and integration with other key systems such as CRM.“Placing parts of the revenue management systems into the cloud is also a priority for telcos, with 55% stating that they will use private or hybrid cloud to host their revenue management systems over the next year. As a result, we see large BSS suites and managed services providers as best positioned to win telco revenue management business,” concluded Cary.
