Law Enforcement technology to tackle child abuse – AviaTor Seminar announced

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 7 gennaio 2023

Amsterdam, The Netherlands, January 9, 2023 – announcement of the AviaTor Seminar. On March 30th, 2023, the AviaTor Seminar will take place in Brussels. This in-person-only event is part of the AviaTor project funded by the European Union’s Internal Security Fund – Police and will focus on the future of industry reporting of Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM). AviaTor, which stands for Augmented Visual Intelligence and Targeted Online Research, is an automation and prioritisation tool made available for law enforcement to process industry reports of CSAM more efficiently.The internet has become a vital part of our lives and is used for endless ways of communication and the sharing of information. The harsh reality is that the internet is also used to spread CSAM. To put a stop to this and remove this material as soon as possible, Electronic Service Providers (ESPs) based in the United States are mandated by law to report suspected CSAM to the National Centre of Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), who forward these reports to law enforcement worldwide. The number of these incoming reports has sky-rocketed in the last 8 years, showing an increase of 2600%. The aim of the AviaTor Seminar is to connect all the relevant stakeholders involved with CSAM reporting coming from law enforcement, legislation, industry, academics, and technology and discuss what is needed to improve the effectiveness of the assessment and prioritisation process. The seminar is in-person-only, creating a safe environment to speak and share thoughts. We will listen to the views of the European Commission, NCMEC, industry itself, academics and technology and discuss how innovations in Artificial Intelligence, OSINT (Open-Source Intelligence) and hash matching can make a difference. We encourage all attendees to take part in the discussion.There will be speakers from NCMEC, the European Commission, INTERPOL, technology, academics, and industry, ensuring a diversity of voices and views are covered to have a balanced and relevant discussion about the future of CSAM reporting. We invite anyone working with industry reports to register, specifically law enforcement, legislators, and people from the industry itself who are responsible for trust and safety. Let’s talk about the future of report prioritization!

Nuovo percorso in “Physics for Technologies and Innovation”

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 24 settembre 2020

Travagliato (BS)Antares Vision, multinazionale italiana leader mondiale nei sistemi d’ispezione, nelle soluzioni di tracciatura e nella gestione intelligente dei dati, rinnova il proprio sostegno alle future generazioni di professionisti attraverso la promozione, presso l’Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Brescia, dell’insegnamento in Machine Learning (fortemente voluto per l’anno accademico 2019/2020 e riproposto nel secondo trimestre di quest’anno) nel corso di laurea triennale in Matematica (curriculum di Informatica) e attraverso il sostegno al nuovo percorso in “Physics for Technologies and Innovation” della laurea magistrale in Fisica, attivo nella facoltà di Scienze matematiche, fisiche e naturali.Il supporto alla formazione qualificata è coerente con l’investimento di tutto il gruppo Antares Vision nelle competenze di intelligenza Artificiale, anche grazie al recente accordo di partecipazione con l’azienda bergamasca Orobix, leader nei servizi di questa innovativa tecnologia.In particolare, il percorso di studi di Fisica per la Tecnologia e l’innovazione è erogato in lingua inglese ed è costruito su solide conoscenze di tipo scientifico/tecnologico nel campo della fisica e un’ampia scelta di corsi nelle discipline di Innovation Management e Data Science. “Il corso – come ricordano i Prof. Claudio Giannetti, Fausto Borgonovi e Luigi Sangaletti – è sostenuto da un network di aziende e società, coinvolte nel programma e che offriranno spunti formativi, nonché daranno la possibilità di svolgere stage e tesi di laurea su argomenti di ricerca, ma calati nella realtà produttiva. Le competenze di questi professionisti sono, infatti, preziose per le imprese: fisici e matematici rappresentano figure imprescindibili per lo sviluppo dei futuri sistemi che governeranno i processi produttivi e che già oggi incidono in maniera forte sulle scelte aziendali”. “In un’epoca di profonda trasformazione digitale dove l’intelligenza artificiale gioca un ruolo fondamentale, si può provare a riassumere un termine così abusato in una formula: il risultato di Big Data + Machine Learning – dichiara Alberto Albertini, Technology Scouting & Innovation Center Director di Antares Vision –. L’effetto combinato dell’apprendimento automatico tipico delle macchine per l’analisi di dati, immagini, esempi, testi, ecc., unito all’elevata capacità di calcolo, ha offerto negli ultimi anni grandi opportunità di progresso. Questa quantità impressionante di dati, oggi raccolti e disponibili, deve però essere compresa, gestita e trasformata per migliorare e automatizzare, ove possibile, i processi produttivi e aziendali. Unificare e gestire enormi quantità di dati con la massima sicurezza e flessibilità sarà la chiave per alimentare la prossima generazione di applicazioni, con una vera e propria rivoluzione che digitalizzerà e automatizzerà una straordinaria serie di operazioni”.,

CONTENT4ALL riceve prestigioso NAB Technology Innovation Award 2020

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 19 Maggio 2020

Fincons Group, società di IT business consulting e system integration internazionale, con sedi in Italia, Svizzera, UK, Francia, Germania e US, è fiera di annunciare che CONTENT4LL, progetto di R&D sponsorizzato dalla Commissione Europea, ha vinto il prestigioso NAB Technology Innovation Award.
CONTENT4ALL, finanziato dal programma Horizon 2020 della Commissione Europea con concessione n. 762021, mira all’interpretazione in automatico del linguaggio dei segni con l’utilizzo di nuove tecnologie e algoritmi AI. Fincons Group svolge il ruolo di system integrator e coordinatore del progetto per il consorzio di progetto che include: due istituti di ricerca, la University of Surrey (UK) e il Fraunhofer HHI Research center (DE), due organizzazioni end-user, VRT (BE) e Swiss TXT (CH), e Human Factors Consult (DE).Un breve video introduttivo su CONTENT4ALL è accessibile qui:
Il National Association of Broadcasting con il Technology Innovation Award premia le organizzazioni che sviluppano, tramite la ricerca, tecnologie avanzate con progetti di sviluppo pre-commerciale in ambito ICT. Oltre ad essere un progetto all’avanguardia, CONTENT4ALL ha l’importante obiettivo di supportare i broadcaster che desiderano rendere disponibili il maggior numero di contenuti possibile nel linguaggio dei segni, raggiungendo un’audience più vasta e inclusiva a bassi costi di produzione. La soluzione dunque permette ai broadcaster di adempire alle crescenti richieste normative, come quelle delineate nell’ l’Art.30, 21 della Convenzione delle Nazioni Unite sui diritti delle persone con disabilità.Michele Moretti, Fincons Group CEO, commenta: “Fincons Group ha sempre puntato sull’investimento nell’innovazione come catalizzatore per la crescita. Questo ci ha permesso di sviluppare il nostro offering e di affacciarci sui mercati internazionali con soluzioni all’avanguardia. Siamo orgogliosi di avere vinto con un progetto che unisce la nostra passione per l’innovazione e la responsabilità sociale.”“Amiamo contraddistinguerci per lo sviluppo di soluzioni innovative che nascono direttamente dalle reali esigenze di mercato, in modo da sviluppare soluzioni R&D, persino a livello precompetitivo, che veramente portino beneficio alla comunità e ai nostri clienti. La cooperazione tra partner e la composizione del consorzio, che include due broadcaster, assicura che il progetto risponda a bisogni reali,” aggiunge Francesco Moretti, CEO Fincons.US e Fincons Group Deputy CEO. Per raggiungere questi obiettivi ambiziosi, il team ha sviluppato un workflow integrato all’interno di un ambiente broadcast che riproduce, in tempo reale, l’interprete della lingua dei segni come essere umano realistico virtuale. L’interprete della lingua dei segni può trovarsi in uno studio remoto, mentre il linguaggio dei segni anima l’essere umano virtuale generato presso il broadcaster. La tecnologia si basa su algoritmi di advanced Deep Learning che tracciano i movimenti del corpo, viso e mani derivandone i parametri necessari per animare l’essere umano virtuale. Il risultato finale è un avatar 3D fotorealistico, soprannominato “realatar”, per la sua corrispondenza con la persona reale.

World’s First Quantum-Safe Connected Car Secured by ISARA

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 9 gennaio 2020

Technology from ISARA Corporation, the world’s leading provider of quantum-safe and crypto-agile security, ensured that the Karma Revero GT demonstration car at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) can send and receive electronic voice data without fear that the information will be hijacked or harvested – even by a quantum-enabled adversary.
ISARA is among several Canadian technology innovators selected by the APMA (Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association) – Canada’s national automotive association representing OEM producers of parts, equipment, tools, supplies, advanced technology, and services for the worldwide automotive industry – for inclusion in the demonstration car at APMA’s booth within the Smart Cities showcase (Booth 1025).As vehicles are designed to update software regularly and communicate over the air, the development of quantum computers during the next decade threatens to make them vulnerable to hackers. Quantum computers operate differently than digital computers and will be capable of breaking traditional encryption algorithms that keep data secure.For the luxury electric Karma Revero GT demonstration car, commercially released products including the ISARA Catalyst™ TLS Testbed were used to create a secure connection using hybrid cryptography that combines ECDH and Kyber for key establishment and Dilithium for authentication – all algorithms implemented in the commercially available ISARA Radiate™ Quantum-safe Toolkit. This was integrated into iNAGO’s netpeople driver assistant to make the car’s connection to the cloud quantum-safe.“iNAGO’s netpeople assistant platform helps automotive companies deliver connected content and services that are unique to the car and personalized to each driver, so a lot of personal information travels across our networks that we need to keep private for drivers and for auto makers,” said Ron DiCarlantonio, iNAGO founder and CEO. “ISARA’s tools were vital to creating a secure environment that didn’t slow down data transfer to create a seamless experience that users can enjoy with confidence.” APMA brings together the most innovative companies in Canada to showcase the country’s cutting-edge automotive technologies. After CES, this year’s APMA demonstration car will tour auto shows around the world to illustrate how Canadian technology can improve a vehicle’s safety, reliability and driver experience.
Karma, a high-tech incubator and creator of luxury electric vehicles, chose to participate in the Province of Ontario, AVIN/APMA demonstration zone initiative because it recognizes the importance of thinking globally from its California home.“Karma is especially positioned to support luxury lifestyles with a smart and connected electric vehicle,” said Lewis Liu, Karma’s Vice President of Business Development and Strategy.

Akili Technology Improves Cognitive Impairments in Adults with Major Depressive Disorder

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 16 dicembre 2019

Akili Interactive (“Akili” or “Company”), today announced results of its randomized, controlled study of digital therapeutic AKL-T03 as a treatment for cognitive impairments adjunct to anti-depressant medication in adults with MDD. AKL-T03 demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in sustained attention compared to control. Results of the study were presented yesterday at the 58th Annual Meeting of the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ACNP). Cognitive impairment is a fundamental diagnostic criterion of depression, and the majority of people living with MDD experience substantial cognitive issues, including with attention, decision-making and processing speed. Such cognitive impairments have been shown to be a predictor of daily function. More than 16 million people are living with MDD, and a majority have cognitive deficits on neuropsychological tests and/or self-report cognitive issues, yet their options for treatment are limited. AKL-T03 is designed to improve specific cognitive functions and may play a complementary role to antidepressants in the holistic treatment of MDD. AKL-T03 was built on Akili’s SSME technology engine, which deploys sensory and motor stimuli to target and activate the fronto-parietal network in the brain, known to play a key role in cognitive function. The treatment is delivered through a captivating action video game to drive enjoyment and compliance.
In the study, AKL-T03 showed a statistically significant improvement in sustained attention compared to control (p=0.002) on the predefined primary endpoint, as measured by the Test of Variables of Attention (T.O.V.A.®), an FDA-cleared objective measure of attention. Engagement with AKL-T03 also showed a strong correlation with improved processing speed. AKL-T03 was shown to be safe in this study, with no serious adverse events observed. Results of the study will be submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

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.
