Modern maritime technologies: do we have the skills?

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 28 febbraio 2018

Like everywhere else, world digitalization, high-tech equipment and low-carbon solutions are affecting the workplace of the maritime world. Preparing the workforce for such trends is crucial to ensure a competitive European maritime sector. But what will be the profiles needed for the jobs of tomorrow? How can we make sure that people are strongly qualified for the many attractive and high quality jobs European seas have to offer?
To address these questions the Commission has launched, as part of the New Skills Agenda, a new cooperation platform between several key stakeholders called Blueprint for skills cooperation.
For the maritime technology sector, the Spanish Foundation CETMAR is in charge of leading the EU partnership composed of 17 partners who today have met in Brussels to kick-off the work. Composed of both educational and industrial representatives, the partnership will explore the skills required by modern maritime technologies and the possible ways to match future demand and supply. They will conceive the profiles and curricula of tomorrow and propose concrete actions to be rolled out at national and regional level to bridge the gap between the training offer and the actual needs of the industry. By helping the sector to adapt the education to prepare the future workforce, this initiative seeks to empower the various strands of the maritime industry and boost its performance for years to come.

Understory Receives Patent for Mechanical Strain-Based Weather Sensor Technology

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 15 febbraio 2018

Understory, the weather network and analytics company, today announced that it received a patent for its mechanical strain-based weather sensor, a key component in its weather station technology.
“To date, weather infrastructure has been expensive, with most costs going to ongoing maintenance and recalibration,” said Alex Kubicek, CEO, Understory. “This patent changes the game. For the first time, Understory has created a privately owned-and-operated network that collects and delivers granular weather data to clients across industries including insurance, agriculture and research organizations.”With its patented solid state sensor, Understory is the only company in the world that can deploy cost-effective weather sensor technology that provides real-time data on the ground. The sensors consist of a stainless steel ball that detects wind, rain, hail and other atmospheric elements via the application of force. Data is then derived from directional information on geospatially specific weather conditions and the patent proves measurables including angle of impact, momentum and size of hail. Understory then utilizes the sensor information across an area to understand impact on property damage. Agricultural applications include measuring rainfall and evapotranspiration to provide on-the-ground insight to optimize growing operations for modern farmers.“Understory’s patented technology provides actionable information that radar, satellite and other remote sensing technologies fail to deliver and cannot replicate,” said Bryan Dow, Understory co-founder and VP of Deployments. “Access to hyper-local weather data is valuable across industries. For example, the insurance industry can understand storm-related property damage to reduce loss control, and the agriculture industry can optimize operational decisions that boost crop yields.”There are currently 500 stations deployed across five major U.S. metropolitan areas and a national expansion planned to increase Understory’s sensor network to 5,000 sensors by the end of 2019.

Pharma Security World 2018

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 14 febbraio 2018

London, United Kingdom – March 20-21, 2018 The pharmaceutical industry has an array of duties of keeping up with technology and research as well as the unbridled counterfeit products that can thwart the efforts. The snide, intended to mimic the genuine products, have in many cases led to lack of effective healing, adverse reactions and now the diminishing confidence in medicines and the general healthcare systems and the providers of the same.
With sales ranging from 150 billion to 200 billion which is US$163 billion to $217 billion every year, as indicated by industry estimates, fake pharmaceuticals are the most lucrative segment of the worldwide exchange illicitly replicated merchandise. World Health Organization (WHO) approximates 30 percent of drugs that reach developing nations are counterfeit and this can have substantial effects for the brand as well as on the patients. Dealing in counterfeits is a criminal offence that not only harms legitimate businesses, but also leaves consumers with sub-standard goods that are often precarious.The US is driving the path with the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) approved in 2013. DSCSA guide for end-to-end traceability is extended over a period of 10 years, with expectations sketched through out the supply chain. In the US, lot- level traceability started in January 2015 under the under the act with package-level serialization to be finished in November 2017. The complete supply chain is relied upon to be electronically incorporated and all hubs of traceability to be built up by November 2023. The E.U.’s Falsified Medicines Directive requires drug companies to adopt mass serialization and other anti-counterfeiting measures starting in 2019. Manufacturers who operate in the E.U. will have to add unique identification numbers to the outer packaging of all prescription drugs, and equip containers with tamperproof seals. To guide customers from illicit online drug stores that supply fake medications, the FMD requires approved legitimate Internet drug stores to show a logo distinguishing them as E.U. approved drug retailers.To protect your brand and build a genuine future, we invite you to Pharma Security World 2018 – An Anti-counterfeiting & Brand Safety Conference, which will have Pharma industry experts sharing various challenges faced, new strategies, case studies and use of innovative ideas and the conference will also offer opportunities to encourage partnerships and collaborations.

A state-of-the-art coworking and shared office space for blockchain startups, Blockchain Centre Vilnius will connect key stakeholders on three continents. It joins partner Blockchain Centres in Melbourne and Shanghai. The Centres incubate and accelerate blockchain start-ups while sharing information about new blockchain opportunities with investors and businesses alike.“Are we ready to meet the new top standards of transparency and security of the revolutionary technology? Lithuania steps in by offering a globally represented blockchain hub and enabling regulatory environment. All European countries can take an advantage and unlock the potential of this technology in various sectors. It goes along the overall positive attitude of the European Union institutions, which are ready to embrace the technology”, says the initiator of the Blockchain Centre Vilnius, member of the European Parliament, digital entrepreneur Antanas Guoga, in the blockchain industry better known as Tony G. The Blockchain Centre Vilnius Board and Investor Committee, which will help raise funds for blockchain start-ups, have already attracted such leading lights as prominent fintech and cryptocurrency expert Jon Matonis, leading Australian artificial intelligence expert and data analyst Eugene Dubossarsky, Lon Wong, President of (Singapore), and Sonic Zhang, Founder of ValueNet Capital.“Blockchain Centre Vilnius is a unique opportunity for blockchain investors, start-ups, and regulators to share ideas, know-how, and best practices worldwide through our two partner Centres in China and Australia. They are ready to make Lithuania their gateway to Europe”, emphasizes Chairman of Blockchain Centre Vilnius, Europe and Asia based entrepreneur Kunčinas. According to Kunčinas, Lithuania was selected by the Australian and Asian blockchain community as the network’s first location in Europe due to its political and economic stability, EU and eurozone membership, and favourable business and regulatory environment. Few weeks ago, government-backed business advisor Invest Lithuania and Singapore FinTech Association signed a landmark financial technology (“fintech”) innovation agreement. “Lithuania is capitalising on its stable jurisdiction and early commitment to innovation in finance and technology. Our country has everything going for it to become Europe’s blockchain leader”, emphasizes Mantas Katinas, CEO of Invest Lithuania. “Best in EU superfast license issuing, direct access to SEPA and strong institutional support make Lithuania the best point of entry for the EU and non-EU Fintech”.
At the heart of this new development is a Central Bank that has embraced fintech innovation, and a recently instituted “start-up visa” that makes it easier to attract and retain top talent from non-EU countries. The Central Bank of Lithuania has adopted a positive and proactive stand with regard to fintech companies, offering fast and efficient licensing as well as a one-year sandbox environment for new fintech companies. E-signatures are widely utilised and accepted, and onboarding can even take place remotely via online video calls. Lithuania is already number one in Europe in fibre-optic penetration and boasts one of the world’s fastest internet networks, which makes doing business online efficient and convenient. Establishing a company takes just three days. Lithuania’s regulators look favourably on the emerging technology and are open to giving progressive tech companies direct access to the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) system. The Blockchain Centre Vilnius, based in a brand new riverfront office building just minutes from the Old Town Vilnius, will open its doors on January 27, 2018. The Centre welcomes inquiries, especially from start-ups, investors, and journalists.

Samsung Starts Mass Production of Its 2nd Generation 10nm FinFET Process Technology

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 1 dicembre 2017

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a world leader in advanced semiconductor technology, today announced that its Foundry Business has commenced mass production of System-on-Chip (SoC) products built on its second generation 10-nanometer (nm) FinFET process technology, 10LPP (Low Power Plus).
10LPP process technology allows up to 10-percent higher performance or 15-percent lower power consumption compared to its first generation 10nm process technology, 10LPE (Low Power Early). As this process is derived from the already proven 10LPE technology, it offers competitive advantages by greatly reducing turn-around time from development to mass production and by providing significantly higher initial manufacturing yield.SoCs designed with 10LPP process technology will be used in digital devices scheduled to launch early next year and are expected to become more widely available throughout the year.“We will be able to better serve our customers through the migration from 10LPE to 10LPP with improved performance and higher initial yield,” said Ryan Lee, Vice President of Foundry Marketing at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung with its long-living 10nm process strategy will continue to work on the evolution of 10nm technology down to 8LPP to offer customers distinct competitive advantages for a wide range of applications.” Samsung also announced that its newest manufacturing line, S3, located in Hwaseong, Korea, is ready to ramp up production of process technologies including 10nm and below. S3 is the third fab of Samsung’s Foundry Business, following S1 in Giheung, Korea and S2 in Austin, USA. Samsung’s 7nm FinFET process technology with EUV (Extreme Ultra Violet) will also be mass produced at S3.
