Microsoft, Nokia reunite after failed $ 7 billion smartphone deal

 Cache   

San Francisco: After a failed $7 billion acquisition of Nokia's smartphone business five years back, Microsoft has announced a strategic collaboration with the Finnish company to accelerate transformation and innovation across industries with Cloud, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT).

The new partnership brings together Microsoft cloud solutions and Nokia's expertise in mission-critical networking, to help enterprises and communications service providers (CSPs) transform their businesses.

"Bringing together Microsoft's expertise in intelligent cloud solutions and Nokia's strength in building business and mission-critical networks will unlock new connectivity and automation scenarios," Jason Zander, executive vice president, Microsoft Azure, said in a statement on Tuesday.

BT is the first global communications service provider to offer its enterprise customers a managed service that integrates Microsoft Azure cloud and Nokia SD-WAN solutions.

"Together, we will accelerate the digital transformation journey towards Industry 4.0, driving economic growth and productivity for both enterprises and service providers," said Kathrin Buvac, President of Nokia Enterprise and Chief Strategy Officer.

The Nokia Digital Automation Cloud (Nokia DAC) 5G-ready industrial-grade private wireless broadband solution with on-premise Azure elements will enable a wide variety of secure industrial automation solutions.

"For example, connected smart tools and machines on manufacturing floors that enable increased productivity, flexibility and safety for workers, or autonomous vehicles and robots in industrial environments that improve automation, efficiency and overall safety," said Microsoft.

Enterprises will be able to use Azure IoT Central and partner solutions for faster and easier enablement and implementation of their IoT applications together with Nokia's IoT connectivity solutions.

In 2014, Microsoft acquired Nokia's smartphone business. The company later quit the smartphone business, laying off thousands of employees.

In 2016, Microsoft sold the Nokia smartphone business for $350 million to HMD Global which now sells Nokia-branded phones.

    IMH, Duke-NUS and Neeuro Pilot Home-Based Brain-Training Game to Help Children with ADHD

     Cache   
    Nov 06, 2019

    • Researchers at IMH, Duke-NUS and A*STAR have developed an advanced brain-computer interface technology that harnesses machine learning to personalise brain-training for children with ADHD.
    • Partnering local tech start-up, Neeuro, the researchers are rolling out a pilot home-based intervention programme for children with ADHD undergoing treatment at IMH. The take-home kit comprises a wireless headband and a Samsung tablet with the pre-loaded game.
    • Extensive clinical testing through a large-scale randomised clinical trial of the game-based brain-training programme found improvements in the attention span of children with ADHD.

    Singapore, 6 November 2019 --( ASIA TODAY )-- A first-of-its-kind personalised, interactive brain-training game will soon be helping children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) improve their attention span. The unique selling point of this technology is that children with ADHD can participate in this programme from home. A pilot run for the home-based programme will be launched for 20 children, aged 6-12 years, who are currently receiving treatment for ADHD at the Institute of Mental Health (IMH).

    The game, called CogoLand1, was developed through a decade’s worth of extensive research, utilising Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) technology that incorporates machine-learning algorithms to personalise attention training, with the hope of complementing mainstay ADHD treatment. The use of CogoLand to complement ADHD treatment is the result of a collaboration between IMH, Duke-NUS Medical School and A*STAR’s Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R). Neeuro Pte Ltd, a local tech startup and spinoff from A*STAR, is the current sole licensee of the technology.

    This non-invasive ADHD intervention programme was the subject of a large scale randomised clinical trial funded by the National Medical Research Council, involving 172 children with ADHD in Singapore.2 Associate Professor Lee Tih Shih, from Duke-NUS’ Neuroscience and Behavioural Disorders programme and Principal Investigator of the large scale clinical trial, commented: “Our patented, personalised intervention using advanced BCI technology has shown very promising and robust results, and we hope it can benefit many children with ADHD in the future.”

    Furthermore, Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) scans of a subset of the children, led by Associate Professor Juan Helen Zhou, also from Duke-NUS, showed positive post-training effects observed in brain areas associated with attention and task-orientation.3 The patented technology was summarised by Professor Guan Cuntai, technical lead of the system and scientific advisor to Neeuro: “Our technology can accurately quantify a person’s attention level in real-time using a machine learning algorithm and, from there, develop a unique patented personalised training programme using a feed-forward concept for cognitive training. Further improvements have been made in recent iterations by capitalising on the latest deep learning approaches with our large dataset.” Professor Guan was also the Principal Scientist who led the BCI research when he was part of A*STAR’s I2R.

    Dr Lim Choon Guan, Deputy Chief of the Department of Developmental Psychiatry at IMH said: “While medication and behavioural therapy are effective in treating symptoms of ADHD in children, some parents are also keen to explore other approaches that can help their children to improve their concentration. After a decade of collaborative work, our team is very excited to pilot this home-based brain-training game which parents can use to help their children regulate themselves.” The home-based programme will see the 20 children each receive a take-home kit that includes Neeuro’s brainwave-reading SenzeBand and a Samsung tablet with the preloaded CogoLand game, which they will use following a prescribed regimen for the duration of the programme. This approach is intended to be a complement and/or supplement to conventional ADHD treatment.

    According to Dr. Alvin Chan, CEO and Co-Founder of Neeuro, “At Neeuro, our aim is to utilise technology to enable positive change in the neurological agility and fitness of our users. We are privileged to be working with institutions such as IMH, Duke-NUS and A*STAR, in conjunction with our hardware partner Samsung, to explore the use of cutting-edge technology in order to achieve this aim. It is our hope that this trial paves the way to enable the progressive development of new complementary options that will bring about positive outcomes for the millions of children afflicted with ADHD globally, especially those in Singapore.”

    Mr Philip Lim, CEO of A*STAR’s innovation and enterprise office A*ccelerate, said: “It is always fulfilling when homegrown technologies are translated into meaningful outcomes. We are proud to be a part of Neeuro’s journey, and A*STAR will continue supporting entrepreneurial companies like them to grow and innovate.”

    The Digital Disruption in Mechanical Engineering

     Cache   

    The Fourth Industrial Revolution is fundamentally changing the world of work for which we are preparing our students and where mechanical engineers are applying their trade. At the same time the students who enter university programmes are much better prepared for the Digital World than they were in the past, expect for those students, in the South African context, who come from disadvantaged environments. 

    Universities tend to be slow to react to changes in the environment and therefore all these factors put together result in a significant challenge for the development and implementation of Engineering Programmes. 

    Over the last three decades most universities were quick to introduce computer programming in their programmes, as engineers had a strong vested interest in this field and always had a significant  requirement for fast and accurate computing.

    The integration of fast computing, big data and machine learning enable engineers to be significantly more productive than in the past by speeding up and integrating processes, from design to manufacture, implementation and commissioning. This new approach is also blurring the boundaries between disciplines forcing mechanical engineers to work collectively in multi-disciplinary teams with other professionals. It also poses new challenges such as mastering software suites and manipulating complex digital models of physical systems.

    Digital moods
    “Multiphysics” refers to digital models that can simultaneously solve multiple physical phenomena. These models speed up the design processes and deliver large amounts of data that need to be analysed. It is now possible to simultaneously model and compute the fluid-dynamics over the wing of an aircraft as well as the forces and deflections (stresses and strains) the varying pressure profile will induce in the structure.

    This is of course a very powerful “tool” that can be used to optimise the aerodynamics and structural elements of the wing in a very short time. 

    Big data

    Where we may have not been at the forefront is in the use of Big Data. These very large data sets have been available for many years in the Financial and Health sectors where. Colleagues working in the maintenance field, and especially the condition monitoring of mechanical and electrical plant, have had access to larger data sets but mostly used deterministic and statistical models to analyse the data.

    The challenge we face going forward is that modern technology, including the Internet of Things, will make large data sets more readily available and we will need to understand how to handle and analyse the data. Data need to be prepared by cleaning it up, verifying and calibrating it, collating from different sources and then storing the data in a format accessible for the various algorithm that can be used to discover the embedded knowledge.

    This new approach is also blurring the boundaries between disciplines forcing mechanical engineers to work collectively in multi-disciplinary teams with other professionals.

    There are a host of methods available to analyse the data, extract information and discover the knowledge. Many of the new methods make use of artificial intelligence and machine learning where the algorithms, with minimal human input, can analyse data and discover new phenomena that
    were not previously known. 

    Reality check
    The old saying “garbage in – garbage out” still holds and we will always need the fast and multi-processing skills of the human brain to look at the outcome and do a “reality check.” Recent experiences on the highly-automated Tesla assembly lines with the lack of humans on the line were identified as a key contributor to their not achieving the volumes and level of quality they desired.

    Therefore, digital disruption in the world of mechanical engineering will indeed bring additional challenges to our fraternity. We will have to equip our new as well as experienced engineers with the necessary skills and understanding of modern data science but at the same time we must always ensure that these mechanical engineers have the required fundamental knowledge and experience to ensure that the new methods provide useful and technically valid results.

    Yours in Mechanical Engineering,

    Krattide logokonkursi võitis tehisintellekti poolt loodud logo

     Cache   
    Riigikantselei ning Majandus- ja Kommunikatsiooniministeeriumi poolt korraldatud krattide ehk tehisintellekti logokonkursi võitis Agnus Laane töö, mille keskseks ideeks on, et kõikidel materjalidel on iga kord unikaalne allkiri, mille annab vastavalt programmeeritud tehisintellekt ise. Parim töö valiti välja konkursile laekunud 47 töö seast. Žürii esimehe, Majandus- ja Kommunikatsiooniministeeriumi e-riigi andmejuhi Ott Velsbergi sõnul oli konkursi eesmärk leida ühtne visuaalne sümboolika krattide projektile, mis edendab tehisintellekti rakenduste kasutamist ja arendamist. “Konkursile laekus palju väga põnevaid töid. Võidutöö torkas silma eeskätt idee sobitumise poolest tehisintellekti valdkonnaga,” rääkis Velsberg. Žürii liikme, reklaamiagentuuri Tank loovjuhi Joel Volkovi sõnul osutus võidutöö valimisel kõige tähtsamaks see, et lahendus lähtub tehisintellekti olemusest ehk et on tugeva filosoofilise aspektiga.“ Mõte, et kratt loob ise logo ja see on iga kord erinev, on iseenesest lahe ja kaasaegne,” rääkis Volkov. Agnus Laane esitatud loovlahenduse keskne idee seisneb selles, et mitte keegi ei tea täpselt, milline kratt välja näeb. “Eesti folkloori teosed kujutavad seda nõiduslikku olendit alati isemoodi. Krati olemuse teeb meile paeluvaks selle mittemõistmine, sama lugu on tehisintellektiga,” kirjutas Laane enda võidutöös. Laane idee kohaselt tuleb kirjutada programm, mis kombineeriks täna olemasolevad tööriistad, et luua automatiseeritud süsteem. “Seejärel laseme kratil endale genereerida sadu või tuhandeid variatsioone oma logost. Et iga logo samasugune ei tuleks, on vaja programmi sisse kirjutada hulgaliselt muutujaid, mis tekitaksid variatsioone,” selgitas Laane. Esikoha saavutanud konkursitööd tunnustatakse 3000 euro suuruse preemiaga. Agnus Laane poolt loodud sümboolika leiab kasutust erinevatel krattidega seotud esitlusmaterjalidel, mille abil jagatakse infot nii krattide projekti ekspertrühma tegemiste kui ka Eestis kasutatavate krattide kogemuslugude kohta. Logo saavad soovi korral kasutada ka kõik krattide arendajad. Ühtekokku laekus konkursile 47 võistlustööd, mille seas toodi lisaks Laanele välja ka Kaur Saarepuu lahendus, mille keskseks ideeks on joontest ja ringidest koosnevad detailid, mida saab kasutada koos või eraldi, ning Kent Raju töö, mille keskseks ideeks on tehisintellekti rahvusvahelise lühendi AI (artificial intelligence) seadmine krati logomärgi sisse. Krattide projekti eestvedajaks on Majandus- ja Kommunikatsiooniministeeriumi ning Riigikantselei poolt ellu kutsutud ekspertrühm. Nii riigiasutuste kui ka erasektori esindajatest koosnev ekspertrühm esitleb 28. mail konkreetsed ettepanekud selle kohta, millistel aladel oleks krattidest Eestile enim kasu ja milliste meetmetega nende kasutuselevõttu toetada. Sealjuures tuuakse välja krattide kasutamisega seotud ettepanekud Eesti õigusruumi arendamiseks, et tagada õigusselgus ja vajalik ohutus.

    Blog Post: Russian startup sells robot clones of real people

     Cache   
    A Russian startup is selling autonomous robots, which buyers can choose to make look like any person on Earth. "Everyone will now be able to order a robot with any appearance — for professional or personal use. Thus, we open a huge market in service, education and entertainment. Imagine a replica of Michael Jordan selling basketball uniforms and William Shakespeare reading his own texts in a museum?" said Aleksei Iuzhakov, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Promobot, in a statement. The company's Robo-C has a neck and torso that each have three degrees of freedom of movement, but it cannot walk. Will robots like this eventually replace human workers? (Promobot). The robot's face has 18 moving parts, allowing it to make 600 "micro-expressions," and its artificial intelligence contains 100,000 speech modules. "Promobot believes that a robot like this is capable of removing the barrier in human-machine interaction and replacing a number of employees in crowded places– post offices, banks, and municipal institutions," the company states in a press release. However, the android -- which Promobot calls a "completely anthropomorphic machine," only has 8 hours of battery life. foxnews.com

    Far more needed to ‘confront the world’s climate emergency’, UN chief tells ASEAN Summit

     Cache   
    INTERNATIONAL, 3 November 2019, Climate Change - Four of the ten countries most affected by climate change are members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres said on Sunday, urging the ASEAN Summit in Bangkok to “confront the world’s climate emergency”.

    “This region is highly vulnerable, particularly to rising sea-levels, with catastrophic consequences for low-lying communities, as recently published research illustrated”, he said, pointing out that 70 per cent of the global population most at risk of rising sea-levels are within ASEAN and other countries that will be represented at summits later this week. 

    The UN chief has been a strong advocate for progress on carbon pricing, ensuring no new coal plants by 2020, and ending the allocation of trillions of taxpayer dollars for the fossil fuel subsidies that boost hurricanes, spread tropical diseases and heighten conflict.

    “I am particularly worried about the future impact of the high number of new coal power plants still projected in some parts of the world, including several countries in East, South and South East Asia”, he asserted.

    At the same time, Mr. Guterres maintained that developed countries “must fulfil their commitment” to provide $100 billion a year by 2020 for mitigation and adaptation in developing countries.  

    To avoid climate catastrophe, the world must

    • Cut greenhouse emissions by 45 per cent by 2030.
    • Reach carbon neutrality by 2050.
    • Limit temperature rise to 1.5 degrees by the end of the century. 

    “I count on your leadership to undertake the concrete actions necessary to confront the world’s climate emergency”, Mr. Guterres underscored. 

    No region immune

    Noting a global phenomenon of rising trade and technology tensions, and unease and uncertainty amidst revised downward growth forecasts, Mr. Guterres spelled out: “No region is immune”.  

    From to the to human rights, collaboration between the @UN and @ASEAN continues to grow stronger. Read @antonioguterres' full remarks on this vital and growing partnership: http://bit.ly/2WBf75U : @hsiehmingchi
    View image on TwitterView image on Twitter
     

    And  he drew attention to rising US-China tensions as “another concern emerging on the horizon”,  fearing what he termed “a Great Fracture”, where the two world’s largest economies split the globe in half – each with its own “dominant currency, trade and financial rules…internet and artificial intelligence capacities, and its own zero sum geopolitical and military strategies”.

    “We must do everything possible to avert this Great Fracture”, the UN chief stressed, emphasizing the importance of maintaining a world with strong multilateral institutions and a universal economy with respect for international law. 

    Turning to economic development, Mr. Guterres spotlighted that the world is “far off track” in meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

    While ASEAN countries have lifted millions out of poverty, there are still people being left behind.

    He pointed out the many complementarities between ASEAN’s Vision 2025 and the 2030 Development Agenda, saying that the UN stands ready to support the region in accelerating its progress, particularly through “our collective efforts on peace and justice, decent work and climate action” as well as in key human rights areas, such as freedom of expression and the right to a healthy environment. 

    He also expressed concern over the situation in Myanmar and the plight of massive numbers of refugees . 

    While welcoming ASEAN’s recent engagement with Rangoon, he flagged that it was ultimately Myanmar’s responsibility “to address the root causes and ensure a conducive environment for the safe, voluntary, dignified and sustainable repatriation of refugees to Rakhine State”.

    In conclusion, the Secretary-General urged everyone to keep building on the UN-ASEAN partnership “to ensure dignity and opportunity” for the people of the region and beyond.

    Tears In Rain

    I've been waiting to make this post for a couple of years now. Purely so I can use the image above. Yep it's time that I celebrate my favourite science fiction sub-genre and more importantly, the effect it's had on electronic music as a whole. This isn't going to be limited to a singular post mind you, I have a couple lined up for this month (again purely so I could use the above image). As for this post, well, there isn't really a plan for this one beyond some thoughts I've been having recently so apologies if it comes across a little rambling, lets get stuck in.

    It's only fitting that I start with the actual namesake of this post (and source of the above image), Vangelis' soundtrack to 1982's Blade Runner has been a mainstay in electronic music circles for an incredibly long time, though curiously the soundtrack didn't see an actual release until 1994. Chalk it up to the film being fairly unpopular in its day, and the strength of its cult following in the years to come. Personally, I point to Vangelis' work for the Blade Runner OST as evidence that more films should be using electronic music in their OSTs. Granted, I am slightly biased because I love the film and electronic music and you could argue that it's thematically appropriate to the movie, but just listen to how iconic Blade Runner Blues sounds all these years later, especially compared to a generic orchestral score.



    You should already be able to hear similarities going forward, most prominently being the work of Daniel Lopatin under his Oneohtrix Point Never alias. Beyond just the love of arpeggiated analogue that they both share, Daniel's signature sound in the early days of Oneohtrix Point Never revolved around using the exact same models of Roland synthesizers that Vangelis did on Blade Runner. Daniel's sound has since evolved and moved quite a ways away from this analogue noodling, but I will always hold a special place in my heart for these works, particularly those on the Betrayed In The Octagon release.



    We're going to jump backwards a little bit now to talk about another series of releases I'm incredibly passionate about. In the early 1990's, Warp Records set out to revive what they called 'Electronic Listening Music', evoking images of Kraftwerk and Pink Floyd on the sleeve of the first compilation that would give the series its title; Artificial Intelligence. To quote Warp Records co-founder Steve Beckett on this decision:
    That's why we put those sleeves on the cover of Artificial Intelligence – to get it into people's minds that you weren't supposed to dance to it!
    — Steve Beckett
    It's this vision and mission statement that comes to mind for me first when thinking of Warp Records, at this time electronic music in the popular sense was Acid House and Hardcore and the associated rave culture, so for Warp to push the envelope like this was an interesting decision. Not an entirely unforeseen one though, given the popularity of chill-out rooms and the release of Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works 85-92 that same year on R&S Records. Still, Warp stuck to this idea for the next couple of years and would release 6 albums and another compilation under the {Artificial Intelligence} label.



    The reason I think these albums appeal to me so is that for as long as I can remember I've been fascinated by just the actual sound of electronic music. I've shared that story of being enthralled by my dad's cassette of Kraftwerk's Autobahn and just how different it sounded compared to anything I'd heard before. Though I didn't fully dive into the world of electronic music until I was a teenager, it twinned nicely with my interest in technology too, a high tech sound for an increasingly high-tech world.

    Which leads to an interesting contrast for me. To me, the Artificial Intelligence series has an almost positive sound to it, like technology is going to guide us through the 1990's and beyond. Maybe it's just the hindsight, but I can definitely hear the sound get more cynical, more jaded over time. This comes to a head around the 2000s, with Electroclash ironically embracing the shallow celebrity culture, Massive Attack taking on their now trademark melancholy tone with Mezzanine and most importantly for me, the release of James Stinson's Lifestyles of the Laptop Café, funnily enough also released on Warp Records.



    While not officially part of it, to me Lifestyles of the Laptop Café represents the end of the Artificial Intelligence series; it carries with it that Electronic Listening Music sensibility for one, but the tone is now much more focused on very personal themes like disconnection and loneliness, with the technological element forming a backdrop to this. Again, maybe it's the hindsight (and to be honest my own personal experience in these areas) talking, but those themes have only gotten more relevant with time, even if the cover art has become a little dated in those 18 years. And in one final twist of fate, Lifestyles of the Laptop Café was originally released on September 3rd 2001, just 8 days before the world would change forever.

    Well, this post took a direction I wasn't expecting. Aplogies again if it's a little rambly and more thinkpiece-y than my usual output. The other Cyberpunk Month posts I have in mind are much more structured so stay tuned for those if this one's been a miss for you. As always, stay safe and enjoy the music.

    DESCRIPTION

    The University of California, San Diego invites applications from outstanding candidates for a tenure-track faculty position for primary appointment at the Halicioglu Data Science Institute with optional joint appointment in another academic department. The appointment will be at the Assistant level. Successful appointees will have a track record of scientific accomplishments, excellence in teaching, a commitment to university service and a commitment to support diversity, equity and inclusion at the university. The University of California, San Diego is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff and student body.

    This search spans all areas of the data science including artificial intelligence, machine learning, data management and their applications and systems. For review purposes, candidates must submit an application to one of the following four broad areas of search that list topics of current interests, but are not limited to those listed.

    a) Statistical Foundations of Data Science, Applied Statistics and Biostatistics
    Statistical foundations of data science is one of the critical areas for hiring. Statistics (including Biostatistics) is the science of drawing inferences from data, thus forming a pillar of the emerging discipline of data science, together with Machine Learning. While both Statistics and Machine Learning are seeking optimal procedures for inference, e.g. prediction, the latter is more focused on algorithms and their computation/implementation, while the former is crucially entasked with quantifying the accuracy of such inference. Topics of current interest in Statistics include (but are not limited to): High-dimensional data, Large-scale Hypothesis Testing, Regularization and Sparsity, Functional Data, Causal inference, Complex Data, Dependent Data, Inference after model selection, Prediction Intervals, quantification of statistical significance and control of false discovery rate.

    b)Digital and Data Infrastructure including Security
    We invite candidates who build and study software systems and software-hardware integrated systems that serve as platforms to enable and amplify the impact of data science algorithms and applications. Our focus spans the whole lifecycle of digital data infrastructure, including (but not restricted to) systems for sensing and sourcing data, systems for storing, querying, learning, and analytics over data, streaming methods for analyzing very large datasets and systems for securely deploying data science methods in high-impact application verticals. Across this lifecycle, concerns of scalability, security, and usability will receive special attention. Examples of research areas that fit this focus include database and analytics systems, information integration and knowledge base construction, data mining and network/graph analytics, Internet of Things and cyber-physical systems, spatiotemporal information systems, cloud computing for data science, secure machine learning, database security. Examples of high-impact application verticals include smart and connected health, smart cities, e-commerce platforms, and social media platforms.

    c) Artificial Intelligence, AI in Science Applications
    We seek faculty candidates with a background in artificial intelligence or machine learning. This area includes, but is not exclusive to: natural language processing, computer vision, modeling high dimensional data with low intrinsic dimension, modeling dynamical systems, streaming methods for analyzing very large datasets, active learning, methods for incorporating machine learning into real-world systems that combine humans and machines, neural networks/deep-learning, reinforcement learning, optimization. We are interested in candidates with a strong applications emphasis as well as those that study the theoretical properties of the algorithms. Priority will be given to those who show a strong connection and relevance to data science.

    d) Data Science in Public Policy
    We seek faculty candidates with a background in statistics, computer science, economics, or public policy who are dedicated to exploring the use, risks, and benefits of data science for a well-defined vertical application area: such as democratic practice, media, trade in digital services, health, education, and societal infrastructure for energy, communication, transportation, and national security. Of particular interest will be candidates who are pursuing advances in theory, methods and tools that help us understand the opportunities and challenges that digital data pose to markets, organizations, society, and government; and (or) who are devising methods and evaluating policies to advance these opportunities and address these challenges, while considering both technical constraints and constraints related to social, political and economic feasibility.

    A PhD in Computer Science, Math, Economics, Engineering or related discipline is required at the start of position.

    Successful applicants will be expected to teach graduate and undergraduate students in the Data Science major/minor degree programs offered by the Institute. In case of a partial joint appointment with another department, the teaching workload would include appropriate course work in the participating department. All candidates are expected to establish a vigorous program of high-quality federally funded research that focuses on innovations in one of the targeted search areas.

    The preferred candidate will have demonstrated strong leadership or a commitment to support diversity, equity and inclusion in an academic setting. The level of appointment and salary is commensurate with qualifications and based on UC pay schedules.

    Applications must be submitted electronically through AP-Online Recruit website: https://apol-recruit.ucsd.edu/JPF02319

    ATTACK! The Latest Version of the M1 Abrams Tank Just Got Even Better

     Cache

    https://www.dvidshub.net/image/5784140/11th-meu-tanks-shoot-table-5

    America has one powerful tank.

    Key point: The Pentagon has ensured many of its weapons systems stay updated and lethal through continuing upgrades.

    The U.S. Army is on an intensive quest for an array of new technologies with which to design and build new armored fighting vehicles, particularly a replacement for the long-serving Bradley. However much it might yearn for a new tank, the Army lacks the critical technologies that would justify the time and expense pursuing such an objective. Moreover, it doesn’t need to make the effort. The Army’s current main battle tank, the Abrams, is the tank of the future.

    The Army is just beginning to receive the first of the latest Abrams upgrade, the System Enhancement Package Version 3 (SEPv3), with additional upgrades in development. Instead of searching for the elusive Holy Grail of ultralight armor or laser weapons, technologies that would justify building a brand new tank, the Army would be best served by aggressively pursuing a major redesign and improvement program for the Abrams, an M1A3.

    The leadership of the U.S. Army is taken with the idea of transforming how and with what the Army fights. They particularly want new armored fighting vehicles. And not just another family of metal boxes with a turret and cannon. Technology enthusiasts, including many in the Army’s new Futures Command, wax eloquently about the potential for hover tanks that shoot laser beams and are autonomously guided by artificial intelligence housed in quantum computers.

    Brigadier Gen. Ross Coffman, the leader of the Next Generation Combat Vehicle Cross Functional Team (CFT) responsible for the Bradley replacement and a future tank, is determined to think outside the box regarding what a future tank might look like and the capabilities it might incorporate. According to General Coffman, it might not be a tank. The CFT has been thinking about “everything from a ray gun to a Star Wars-like four-legged creature that shoots lasers. But the reality is that everything is on the table. We have to get away from these paradigms that we created that decisive lethality must come from a tank.”

    Why Are American Companies Helping China Build an Artificial Intelligence Authoritarian State?

     Cache   

    William Giannetti

    Security, Americas

    Reuters

    If the future looks like China’s digital autocracy, then lawmakers ought to set a new standard for business ethics on the internet now, before it’s too late.

    President Xi Jinping wants China to dominate artificial intelligence by 2030. But all it seems the Middle Kingdom’s new AI entrepreneurs want to talk about ancient history. Take Kai-Fu Lee, for example. The founder of Face++ was born in Taiwan and emigrated to America when he was eleven. After earning a Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon in the 1980s, he worked his way up at Apple, Microsoft, and eventually, Google. In his book AI Superpowers, he likens Chinese entrepreneurs to “gladiators” fighting in a new techwar arena, where it’s “kill or be killed.”

    Electricity brought America’s early twentieth-century industrial revolution to life. Lee predicts AI will electrify China’s next tech boom. To meet Xi’s goal, Lee says China is raising a well-trained army, but not one clad in breastplates and helmets. No, this new army is made up of businessmen, software developers and engineers who are hungry to make millions for China First. “The only recourse when an opponent strikes a low blow,” writes Lee, “is to launch a more damaging counterattack, one that can take the form of copying products [or] smearing opponents.” Other attacks come from China’s courts, whose cybersecurity laws abet intellectual property hijacking. Unforgiving magistrates will imprison foreign competitors if they don’t submit their designs to a one-sided national security review.

    Meet the Spice-250 Bomb: Israel's Smart Weapon That Can Choose Its Own Targets

     Cache

    Security, Middle East

    By KGyST - Own work, CC BY 3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=11766857

    A great idea or the Terminator in waiting?

    Key point: Letting a weapon choose its own targets means it could make a mistake to disastrous results.

    An Israeli company has unveiled a smart bomb that is truly smart.

    The SPICE-250 glide bomb has the ability to autonomously recognize and select targets. But how safe is a bomb that can pick its own targets?

    Israeli manufacturer Rafael calls this Automatic Target Recognition, which relies on electro-optic sensors (which process light into sensor data) and Artificial Intelligence. “The newly-unveiled ATR feature is a technological breakthrough, enabling SPICE-250 to effectively learn the specific target characteristics ahead of the strike, using advanced AI and deep-learning technologies,” according to a Rafael announcement. “During flight, the pilot selects the target type to be attacked and allocates a target to each weapon. The weapons are launched towards the vicinity of the targets, using their INS [inertial navigation] for initial navigation. When approaching the target area, the weapons use the ATR mode for detection and recognition of the targets. Each weapon homes-in on the pre-defined target, either autonomously or with a human-in-the-loop, aided by the ATR algorithm.”

    The SPICE-250 is a glide bomb with a range of 75 kilometers (47 miles) and armed with a 75-kilogram (165-pound) warhead. A single F-16 can carry sixteen of these weapons.

    The SPICE-250 uses terrain data, 3-D models and algorithms to identify targets amid the surrounding clutter of objects and terrain in the kill zone, Rafael deputy marketing manager Gideon Weiss told IT magazine Insight Analytics. A two-way data link and video stream enable a pilot to retarget the weapon until just seconds before impact.

    Yet most significant is that if the primary target cannot be hit, the SPICE-250’s AI algorithms can select a secondary target. “This goes into the area of user-defined policies and rules of engagement, and it is up to the users to decide on how to apply the weapon, when and where to use it, and how to define target recognition probabilities and its eventuality,” Weiss said.,

Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg was urged by civil rights activists during a dinner at his home to push the company to more aggressively root out election misinformation and voter suppression on its social-media platforms.Civil rights leaders, including Al Sharpton, also asked Zuckerberg to prioritize civil rights more vigorously inside the company. The dinner Monday, which lasted about two hours at Zuckerberg’s Palo Alto, California, home, included discussion on topics like voter suppression and misinformation campaigns heading into the 2020 U.S. elections, plus tactics being used to keep people off the voter rolls ahead of the census, according to Sharpton and Rashad Robinson, president of the advocacy group Color of Change, who were among the attendees.Facebook has been under scrutiny on issues including election manipulation, privacy lapses and potential antitrust actions. Civil rights activists took particular issue with the company when researchers found Russian operatives used Facebook to target African American voters with misinformation and voter suppression efforts during the 2016 presidential campaign.Zuckerberg, who was joined by Facebook executives including Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg and head of global policy Nick Clegg, was encouraged to embed civil rights experts in the company who would be alert to nuances in the political discourse -- such as calls for voters to stand their ground -- that Sharpton said are meant to suppress votes even though it might not appear that way.“We said free speech has to be done within the framework of public safety and abiding by the law,” Sharpton told Bloomberg. “Breaking the law in our opinion is any engagement in knowingly being involved in voter suppression.”Robinson said Facebook needs to build civil rights into its company DNA.Facebook needs a “C-suite-level team that is focused on civil rights,” Robinson said. This group would look at things like Facebook’s artificial intelligence efforts, algorithms, ads and content to provide the company with “a lens by which civil rights is viewed.““We’re grateful that these prominent leaders of the civil rights community took the time to attend a private dinner hosted by Mark and Sheryl,” a Facebook spokeswoman said. “They discussed a range of important issues and we look forward to continuing these conversations.”The conversation was respectful and engaging, according to attendees, and Zuckerberg asked a lot of questions. He reiterated points he’s made publicly about the role he wants Facebook to play as a center of debate and concerns about the company acting as an arbiter in U.S. political discourse, Sharpton said.Facebook executives didn’t make any promises about how or what they might do to address the activists’ concerns, attendees said.“The implication was that he is thinking through how to get to the right place,” Sharpton said. “I think the fact that he had the meeting and had it in his home, not that he had others do it or even meet at his office, was a signal that he’s directly looking into this.”“I felt like we had a substantive and respectful conversation that was robust,” Robinson added. “Whether or not we were heard will depend on their actions.”To contact the reporters on this story: Kurt Wagner in San Francisco at kwagner71@bloomberg.net;Ben Brody in Washington, D.C. at btenerellabr@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Jillian Ward at jward56@bloomberg.net, Andrew Pollack, Dan ReichlFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    11 000 scientifiques exigent un contrôle de la population pour «urgence climatique»

     Cache   

    Par Claire Chretien ― traduit par Campagne Québec-Vie ― Photo : Capture d'écran d'une vidéo du CELJ

    5 novembre 2019 (LifeSiteNews) ― 11 000 scientifiques ont signé un article déclarant que « la population mondiale doit être stabilisée et, idéalement, progressivement réduite », car une « urgence climatique » menace « le destin de l'humanité ».

    Rédigé par l'Alliance of World Scientists et rempli d'un langage alarmiste et apocalyptique, l'article a été publié aujourd'hui dans BioScience.

    « Toujours augmentant d'environ 80 millions de personnes par an, soit plus de 200 000 personnes par jour... la population mondiale doit être stabilisée, et, idéalement, progressivement réduite, dans un cadre qui assure l'intégrité sociale », ont écrit les auteurs.

    « Il existe des politiques éprouvées et efficaces qui renforcent les droits de l'homme tout en abaissant les taux de fécondité et en atténuant l'impact de la croissance démographique sur les émissions de gaz à effet de serre et la perte de biodiversité. Ces politiques rendent les services de planification familiale accessibles à tous, éliminent les obstacles à leur accès et accomplissent une pleine équité entre les sexes, y compris l'éducation primaire et secondaire comme norme mondiale pour tous, en particulier les filles et les jeunes femmes », poursuivaient-ils, citant une étude réalisée par John Bongaarts, un activiste en faveur du contrôle démographique qui a pris la parole au Vatican en 2017.

    Le PDG et milliardaire de Tesla, Elon Musk, a cependant publiquement déclaré que le « plus grand problème » auquel le monde est confronté n'est pas l'explosion démographique, mais l'« effondrement de la population » dû à la chute libre des taux de natalité.

    « La plupart des gens pensent que nous sommes trop sur la planète, mais en fait c'est une vision dépassée », déclarait M. Musk lors d'un débat en direct en direct le 19 août avec Jack Ma, président d'Alibaba Group Holding Ltd à la World Artificial Intelligence Conference de Shanghai.

    Depuis des années déjà, les démographes mettent en garde les pays occidentaux, dont le taux de natalité est inférieur au taux de remplacement, contre ce que certains appellent « l'hiver démographique ». Dans un tel effondrement, les personnes âgées sont plus nombreuses que les jeunes, ce qui crée de graves déséquilibres. Les économies en souffrent. Certaines pourraient même s'écrouler. Le résultat pourrait avoir un impact négatif sur certaines des principales infrastructures — comme les systèmes financier et de soins de santé — qui contribuent à la vie de la démocratie occidentale.

     Cache   

    Das Bundesministerium für Digitalisierung und Wirtschaftsstandort (BMDW) hat gemeinsam mit der Austria Wirtschaftsservice GmbH (aws) die dritte Ausschreibungsrunde des Programms JumpStart erfolgreich abgeschlossen. Aus 24 eingereichten Projekten hat eine unabhängige Expertenjury die besten Konzepte ausgewählt, die nun als Inkubatoren mit jeweils bis zu 150.000 Euro unterstützt werden. Diese sind: Female Founders, Lemmings und The Ventury aus Wien, Climate KIC aus Niederösterreich und I.E.C.T. aus Tirol. Schwerpunkt des Programms liegt dabei auf der Unterstützung und Weiterentwicklung heimischer Inkubatoren und Akzeleratoren, die innovativen Start-ups nicht nur Büro-, Labor-, oder Produktionsflächen, sondern insbesondere maßgeschneiderte Beratungsleistungen zur Verfügung stellen.

    „Unsere innovativen Start-ups brauchen die besten Rahmenbedingungen. Mit dem JumpStart-Programm leisten wir einen wichtigen Beitrag, um aus Ideen erfolgreiche Geschäftsmodelle zu machen. Besonders positiv ist, dass wir in dieser Runde mit der Unterstützung von Female Founders auch gezielt Frauen in Start-ups unterstützen können. Wir brauchen mehr Gründerinnen und dafür braucht es neben Mut und Eigeninitiative auch entsprechende Rahmenbedingungen“, sagt Wirtschaftsministerin Margarete Schramböck.

    Projekte aus ganz Österreich

    Im Rahmen der dritten Ausschreibungsrunde wurden 24 Anträge aus ganz Österreich eingereicht. Neben bekannten und in der Szene fest verankerten Akteuren konnten in dieser Runde auch viele junge Initiativen angesprochen werden. Die Bandbreite der Bewerber und der ausgewählten Projekte reichte dabei von „Stand-alone“- über Corporate-Inkubatoren und Technologiezentren bis hin zu akademischen Akzeleratoren und verteilt sich über alle Start-up-relevanten Branchen, wie Life Sciences, IT, Web/Mobile, Dienstleistungen und Hardware.

    „Um ihre Ideen umzusetzen, brauchen Start-ups neben finanziellen Ressourcen eine Arbeitsumgebung, in der sie sich ganz auf ihre Projekte konzentrieren und gleichzeitig von der Vernetzung und vom lebendigen Erfahrungsaustausch mit anderen Start-ups profitieren können. Mit aws JumpStart unterstützen wir die besten Inkubatoren und schaffen damit die notwendigen Rahmenbedingungen“, sagt die aws Geschäftsführung, Edeltraud Stiftinger und Bernhard Sagmeister.

    In einem ersten Schritt wurden in der Förderungsschiene nun geeignete Inkubatoren und Akzeleratoren ausgewählt und unterstützt. Damit wird für Unternehmungen ein produktiver und unbürokratischer Rahmen geschaffen, in dem sie sich entwickeln können. Zudem brauchen besonders innovative Start-ups auch selbst Finanzierung. In einem zweiten Modul des Förderungsprogramms werden daher vielversprechende Start-ups auch direkt unterstützt. Bis zu fünf der Unternehmen, die sich in einem JumpStart Inkubator/ Akzelerator befinden, werden dazu ausgewählt. Pro Start-up ist eine Förderung von 22.500 Euro vorgesehen.

    Die Projekte im Überblick:

    The Technology Politics of Mechanizing Crops: Insights from California Agriculture, 1945-1985, Nov 4

     Cache   
    This is the age of agricultural robots. Media outlets from the Los Angeles Times to The New Yorker are publishing articles on new robotic advances. The contemporary fascination with robots, artificial intelligence, ‘big data’, and other Silicon-Valley-inspired technology is rooted in a long history of framing automation as natural and inevitable. For the past century, the agricultural industry in California has eagerly anticipated farm mechanization: the replacement of human labor by machine labor in the cultivation and harvesting of vegetable, fruit, and nut crops. Scientists, engineers, and industry boosters have repeatedly promised that new machines will resolve labor shortages, reverse shrinking profit margins, stabilize immigration, sidestep union troubles, and put an end to “back-breaking” working conditions. To evaluate the influence of techno-optimism in agriculture, we trace evolving efforts to mechanize fruit and vegetable crops in California from 1945-1985. During this period, mechanization profoundly transformed farms and farmers: to enable mechanized harvesting, crops were re-engineered, farmland simplified and made uniform, and entire supply chains reconfigured to act like factory lines. But history also shows that mechanization faces significant biological, social, and environmental barriers—not to mention active opposition from farmworkers and rural communities worried about their livelihoods. This suggests we need to look critically into the dynamics and politics of mechanization, and to question the prevailing narratives of inevitable progress.

    DASA awards £2m contracts to counter hostile drone threats

     Cache   

    The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) has announced it has awarded nearly £2m to develop new capabilities to detect, disrupt, and defeat the hostile and malicious use of drones.

    Eighteen bids have been funded as part of the Countering Drones competition launched earlier this year by the then-Defence Secretary.

    Among the proposal being developed are methods for detecting 4G & 5G controlled drones, cutting edge applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence for sensors to automatically identify UAVs, and low risk methods of stopping drones through novel electronic defeat or interceptor solutions.

    The competition, run by DASA – the MOD’s innovation hub – on behalf of Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), is the latest stage in Dstl’s ongoing research programme into countering unmanned air systems (UAS) which has been running for ten years.

    The competition has also been supported by the Department for Transport and NATO to counter the rapidly evolving threats from UAS.

    David Lugton, competition technical lead, said: "The introduction of Unmanned Air Systems (UAS), often referred to as drones, has been one of the most significant technological advances of recent years and represents a shift in capability of potential adversaries.

    "The threat from UAS has evolved rapidly and we are seeing the use of hostile improvised UAS threats in overseas theatres of operation. There is a similar problem in the UK with the malicious or accidental use of drones becoming a security challenge at events, affecting critical infrastructure and public establishments; including prisons and major UK airports."

    There was a very high level of interest from industry with over 90 bids from a wide range of organisations from micro businesses, small and medium-sized enterprises, large defence firms and academia.

    This led to a doubling of initial funding from around £1m to around £2m being awarded to organisations in Phase 1.

    The first phase of this competition is intended to demonstrate proof of concepts that can be further developed and integrated during later phases.

    Phase 2 is planned to launch next year with a focus on developing and maturing successful research into integrated solutions

    The 18 projects funded around £100,000 each are:
    • Airspeed Electronics Ltd – to develop an artificial intelligence detection system which uses acoustic sensors.
    • Animal Dynamics – to develop UAS swarm system to detect and neutralise.Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV) by employing peregrine falcon attack strategies.
    • Autonomous Devices Limited – to develop interception technology.
    • BAE Systems Applied Intelligence Ltd – to develop electromagnetic defeat of UAS.
    • BAE Systems Applied Intelligence Ltd – to develop passive radar for detection of UAVs.
    • Cubica Technology Ltd – to develop an automatic recognition and targeting system of UAVs from large distances.
    • MBDA UK Ltd – to demonstrate an integrated system to detect, track and intercept hostile drones.
    • Northrop Grumman – to develop UAS defeat using cyber and sensor vulnerabilities.
    • Northumbria University – to develop anti-swarm drone technology.
    • PA Consulting – to develop a detection system against cellular controlled UAS.
    • Plextek Services Limited – to develop detection and signal jamming capability for UAS.
    • Plextek Services Limited – to develop miniature Counter-UAS radar.
    • QinetiQ – to develop a drone tracking system in complex environments.
    • QinetiQ – to develop a ‘hard kill’ for disrupting the UAV’s on board electronics.
    • RiskAware Ltd – to develop an automated drone identification and target tracking system.
    • Thales UK – to develop a machine learning for Counter-UAS radar.
    • University College London – to develop signal processing and machine.learning algorithms to identify drones in areas highly populated by birds.
    • An additional proposal, subject to contract.

    Phase 1 of the competition is due to run until summer 2020.

    DASA and Dstl will be hosting a collaboration day for the Countering Drones competition on Thursday 28 November 2019 in London.

    Representatives from industry and academia interested in making collaborative bids for Phase 2 of the competition can register their interest in attending the event here.

    Note that numbers at the event are limited and those who express an interest will be selected to attend depending on their skills and experience.

    The Importance of Space and Time for Signal Processing in Neuromorphic Agents: The Challenge of Developing Low-Power, Autonomous Agents That Interact With the Environment

     Cache   
    Artificial neural networks (ANNs) and computational neuroscience models have made tremendous progress, enabling us to achieve impressive results in artificial intelligence applications, such as image recognition, natural language processing, and autonomous driving. Despite this, biological neural systems consume orders of magnitude less energy than today's ANNs and are much more flexible and robust. This adaptivity and efficiency gap is partially explained by the computing substrate of biological neural processing systems that is fundamentally different from the way today?s computers are built. Biological systems use in-memory computing elements operating in a massively parallel way rather than time-multiplexed computing units that are reused in a sequential fashion. Moreover, the activity of biological neurons follows continuous-time dynamics in real, physical time instead of operating on discrete temporal cycles abstracted away from real time.
              

    Neuroscience-Inspired Online Unsupervised Learning Algorithms: Artificial neural networks

     Cache   
    Inventors of the original artificial neural networks (ANNs) derived their inspiration from biology [1]. However, today, most ANNs, such as backpropagation-based convolutional deeplearning networks, resemble natural NNs only superficially. Given that, on some tasks, such ANNs achieve human or even superhuman performance, why should one care about such dissimilarity with natural NNs? The algorithms of natural NNs are relevant if one's goal is not just to outperform humans on certain tasks but to develop general-purpose artificial intelligence rivaling that of a human. As contemporary ANNs are far from achieving this goal and natural NNs, by definition, achieve it, natural NNs must contain some "secret sauce" that ANNs lack. This is why we need to understand the algorithms implemented by natural NNs.

    TRA Organizes the “Activation the Fourth Industrial Revolution Tools in Government Work” Program

     Cache   
    The training program (Activation the Fourth Industrial Revolution Tools in Government Work) started today, organized by the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) as the main coordinator to achieve the national Online Service Index. The program aims to enable federal government employees to implement the tools and applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI), blockchain, and other topics that will be included in the program over the upcoming months. The first workshop of the program was attended by government services specialists, government strategy officials, human resources officers, and employees in the field of innovation, future foresight, advanced technologies, internet and government websites officials of a number of government entities.

    This program is part of the national goal initiatives, the country's preparations for future and its foresight and shaping in line with the UAE visions and future goals. The program utilizes AI and blockchain in the workplace to reach the next step of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and to fulfill the UAE's national, regional and global commitments to achieve the plan of transferring 50% of government transactions to the blockchain platform by 2021.

    On this program, H.E, Salem Al Housani, Acting Deputy Director General for the Telecommunication Sector in TRA, and OSI Executive Team Leader, said: “Talking about AI and Fourth Industrial Revolution is no longer a future foresight. Humanity has already entered this era, which is coming gradually evident, thus it is time to apply these new technologies in a practical and wide manner in our government work. The UAE's smart and speedy services require us to make the most of AI technologies, and adapt these technologies to contribute to the achievement of a competitive national economy based on knowledge, innovation and future technological applications that integrate physical, digital and dynamic technologies, in line with the UAE Strategy for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, launched by the UAE Government in September 2017”.

    H.E. Al Housani emphasized that this program aims to fuel the flame of innovation and creativity among employees in the government sector, and encourage individuals to think of extraordinary solutions to the problems arising from the rapid developments. He said: “Through this program, we provide government employees with the necessary tools that enable them to benefit from the techniques of AI and blockchain in the development of government work, and to reach a more stimulating and productive work environment, which will have a significant impact on the development of work and achieving targets as well as the UAE visions and future goals.”

    The program will cover two main topics: AI and blockchain, in addition to a number of sub-topics. The program will include an introduction to AI, the role of AI in the development of government services, the use of robots in government work, and the application of AI in human resources and finance. Additionally, the program will address the application of blockchain technologies in government operations and investment returns in the short and long term, solutions and tools available for the application of blockchain technologies in government work, and the challenges and solutions of this application.

    Through the program, participants will learn how AI and blockchain technology can support government employees to save time, effort and resources, and how to use AI and blockchain in digital transactions, the role of these technologies in providing a double shield against cyberattacks, and raising the level of protection of data and information and thus contribute to the overall cyber security of the government,

    Participants will also learn how blockchain contributes to reducing operational costs and speeding up decision-making, how to use both technologies combined to improve the speed of transfer of information and data and enable customers to interact better and faster with government entities.

    The UAE Government launched the UAE Fourth Industrial Revolution Strategy in September 2017. This Strategy is based on several key pillars, including “the human of the future” by improving the outcomes of the education sector based on advanced technology and science, in addition to adopting plans and strategies in the field of genomics, the genomic medical tourism through improving healthcare levels, developing personalized medical solutions and genomic medicines as needed, focusing on robotic healthcare, utilizing robotics and nanotechnology, to enhance the possibilities of providing remote health and surgical care services. Moreover, enhancing economic security through the adoption of a digital economy, digital transactions, achieving “Future Leadership” by investing in space research and enhancing the UAE position as a global platform for ambitious entities in the field of space studies, research, projects and investment.

    Sicherheit | Im Datenkuckucksheim

     Cache   
    Was wir im Netz uploaden, landet meist auf Servern, die US-Firmen gehören. Braucht Europa eine eigene Infrastruktur?
    Im Datenkuckucksheim

    Schwere Zeiten für die Datenträger-Industrie: Die große Zeit der externen Festplatten, der DVDs und CD-ROMs ist definitiv vorbei – ihr Absatz ist seit 2011 auf die Hälfte bzw. ein Viertel eingebrochen; CD-Rohlinge tauchen seit zwei Jahren gar nicht mehr in der Statistik auf. Bei uns Usern verstauben derweil die schwarzen Kisten, die Plastikmappen mit gebrannten DVDs, die Spindeln mit zerkratzten CD-ROMs. Wie passt das zusammen mit dem exponentiellen Anstieg des weltweiten Datenaufkommens, dieses verdoppelt sich schließlich alle zwei Jahre, wo sind sie nur hin, all die Daten?

    Unsere Daten sind jetzt sicher aufgehoben in der Cloud, so die Wohlfühl-Wortkreation der Marketing-Leute, durch meist in Weiß- und Blau-Tönen gehaltene Icons repräsentiert. Bequem, sicher und sauber ist sie, die fluffige Online-Datenheimat! Natürlich gibt es die Cloud, dieses Wolkenkuckucksheim für Daten gar nicht, es gibt nur, wie ein kluger Zeitgenosse einmal bemerkte, „Computer, die anderen Leuten gehören“.

    In riesigen Hallen, sogenannten Data Centern, stehen sie herum in rauen Mengen, die schwarzen Kisten, die von unserem Desktop verschwunden sind. Im arktischen Eis, am Meeresgrund, in der Wüste, überall dort, wo es kühl ist oder der Strom billig. Steckte womöglich die Cloud-Industrie hinter Donald Trumps Versuch, Grönland zu kaufen? So sauber ist das Ganze auch nicht, das Internet ist bereits für zehn Prozent des weltweiten Energieverbrauchs verantwortlich. Über die Hälfte des Datenverkehrs im Downstream geht auf das Konto von Videostreaming, fand das kanadische Netzwerktechnologieunternehmen Sandvine heraus.

    Die Geburtsstunde des Cloud-Computing liegt wahrscheinlich im Jahre 1961, die Mauer war noch nicht gebaut, und Steve Jobs gerade sechs Jahre alt. Der Mathematiker John McCarthy entwirft in der Festrede zum hundertjährigen Bestehen des Massachussets Institute of Technology (MIT) eine Zukunftsvision, die beim Publikum des Festakts vermutlich allzu phantastisch geklungen haben mag. McCarthy sprach davon, dass Computer-Berechnungen eines Tages als öffentliche Dienstleistung organisiert sein würden, genauso wie das Telefonsystem, für jedermann zugänglich. „Bestimmte Abonnenten bieten möglicherweise anderen Abonnenten Dienste an. Das Computer-Dienstprogramm könnte zur Grundlage einer neuen und wichtigen Branche werden“, fuhr McCarthy fort.

    Vermutlich konnten die Gäste des Festakts wenig mit dieser Prophezeiung anfangen, die meisten Gäste dürften bis dato noch nie einen Computer zu Gesicht bekommen haben. Und doch sollte die Prophezeiung eintreten, allerdings erst ein halbes Jahrhundert später: Anstatt ihre eigenen Computersysteme zu kaufen, können Unternehmen oder Einzelpersonen IT-Infrastrukturen und -Dienstleistungen nutzen, die als Dienst gemietet werden und über ein Netzwerk (zum Beispiel das Internet) zugänglich gemacht werden.

    2004 ging Facebook an den Start und bot seiner schnell wachsenden Fangemeinde an, Fotos und dergleichen zu „posten“, ein Jahr später dann wurde das erste Video auf die Plattform YouTube „hochgeladen“ und wiederum ein Jahr später war es erstmals möglich, auf Twitter einen Kurzkommentar „abzusetzen“. Alle diese „Beiträge“ aus der „Crowd“ mussten irgendwo gespeichert werden. Die jeweiligen Betreiber standen auf Grund des schnellen Wachstums ihrer Nutzerbasis vor dem Problem, ständig wachsende Systeme vorhalten zu müssen, um die neue Datenflut aufzunehmen. In dieser Zeit begannen große Unternehmen wie Google und Amazon damit, den Begriff „Cloud Computing“ zu verwenden, um das neue Paradigma zu beschreiben, in dem Menschen zunehmend über das Web auf Software, Computerleistung und Dateien zugreifen, anstatt auf ihre eigenen Desktops. Die neuen Systeme mussten nicht nur schnell wachsen, sondern auch dynamisch auf Lastspitzen reagieren können. In Spitzenzeiten, zum Beispiel für das Weihnachtsgeschäft bei Amazon, war kurzzeitig durchaus das Zehnfache der Rechen- und Speicherkapazität nötig.

    Aus den Herausforderungen der Skalierung wurde ein Geschäft: Die Skalierungseffekte der Cloud-Dienste wurden damit zur Basis des Produktes Cloud-Computing selbst, das man ab da nicht mehr nur intern, sondern auch extern anbot. Bereits 2006 ging Amazon Web Services (AWS) als Tochterunternehmen an den Start und ist heute weltweit der größte Anbieter von Cloud-Computing. Amazon Web Services ist zudem der am stärksten expandierende Teil des Konzerns, und gleichzeitig der profitabelste: 74 Prozent von Amazons Gewinn entfielen 2018 auf AWS. Amazon ist also auch eine Datenplattform und ähnelt darin eher Google und Facebook als Walmart oder Otto. Heute verfügt Amazon über eine der größten Datensammlungen der Welt, mit AWS als Schlüssel-Infrastruktur, ohne die zum Beispiel die Alexa-Technologie (künstlicher Sprachassistent) nicht denkbar wäre.

    Die Liste der größten Anbieter für Cloud-Speicherung und Cloud-Dienste liest sich wie das Who is Who des digitalen Kapitalismus: Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Apple iCloud Drive heißen die Marktführer – allesamt US-amerikanische Unternehmen. In China bietet sich derweil ein ähnliches Bild. Hier sind es die Suchmaschine Baidu, das Internet-Unternehmen Tencent und der Amazon-Klon Alibaba, welche über die größten Datensammlungen, die meisten Nutzer und die mächtigste Cloud-Computing-Infrastruktur verfügen. Kein Wunder, dass sich der Wunsch in Europa, eine europäische Cloud dagegenzuhalten, Zuspruch erfreut.

    Datenwende muss sein

    ÖVP-Chef Sebastian Kurz versuchte sich kürzlich mit dem Vorschlag einer österreichischen National-Cloud zu profilieren: Anbieter sollen Rechenzentren und damit Daten ihrer Nutzerinnen und Nutzer innerhalb der Landesgrenzen errichten. Nur: solche Angebote gibt es schon längst, in Österreich zum Beispiel A1 digital, eine Tochter der teilstaatlichen Telekom Austria.

    Viele Unternehmen und Institutionen, nutzen solche Dienste, insbesondere, wenn es um private Daten geht. Das in Berlin ansässige StartUp Edkimo, die eine Smartphone-basierte Feedback-App für Schulen anbietet, ein Bereich, in dem Anonymität und Datenschutz entscheidendes Verkaufskriterium sind, schreiben auf ihrer Website: „Unser Server steht in Deutschland zu geltenden Datenschutzbestimmungen. Er befindet sich in einem Rechenzentrum in Bayern“. Sicherheitsbedenken gegenüber den amerikanischen Datenkonzernen kann so entgegengetreten werden, die insbesondere durch die vor sechs Jahren durch die Enthüllungen Edward Snowdens bekannt gewordene umfassende Zusammenarbeit US-amerikanische Digitalkonzerne mit der NSA befeuert wurden.

    Entscheidend ist weniger die Vertrauenswürdigkeit des jeweiligen Cloud-Anbieters als die aus dem Standort der Datenspeicher sich ergebenden Datenschutzbestimmungen. Stehen die Server in Deutschland, gilt die Europäische Datenschutzgrundverordnung, das derzeit weltweit strikteste Gesetzeswerk, wenn es um Datenschutz geht.

    Aus dem bundesdeutschen Wirtschaftsministerium ist kürzlich ein Papier bekannt geworden, demzufolge ein europäisches Netzwerk an Cloud-Anbietern, „Gaia-X“ entstehen soll. CDU-Wirtschaftsminister Altmeier, der auch schon durch Forderungen nach einem europäischen Konzern für Künstliche Intelligenz hervorgetreten ist, möchte im Zuge dessen eine Organisation ins Leben rufen, die Technik und Richtlinien dafür definiert. Hierzulande macht man sich Sorgen, dass ausländische Cloud-Anbieter auch zur Industriespionage ausgenutzt werden könnten. Ziel ist, von den großen amerikanischen Anbietern unabhängig zu werden und europäische Datenreservoire anzulegen.

    China, der andere große KI-Wettbewerber, hat solche Probleme nicht: Sie haben eigene Cloud-Anbieter, entwickeln eigene Soft- und Hardware und schützen sich zudem durch das Projekt „Goldener Schild“, manchmal auch als die „Große Firewall“ von China in Anlehnung an die chinesische Mauer genannt, eine Kombination aus gesetzgeberischen Maßnahmen und Technologien, um das Internet zu regulieren.

    Knapp sechzig Jahre nach John McCarthys Festrede, ist seine Prophezeiung Realität geworden: Online abgerufene Software-Funktionen und Anwendungen sowie das Auslagern von gespeicherten Daten sind zur informationellen Grundversorgung wie Wasser und Strom geworden. Allerdings sind die Wolken keine öffentliche Infrastrukturen, sondern Privatgelände, in denen einige wenige Datenkonzerne mit ihren Allgemeinen Geschäftsbedingungen ein strenges Regiment führen. Aber es ist keine öffentliche Ressource, kein regulierter Bereich der öffentlichen Grundversorgung, sondern Wilder Westen in der Datenwelt, in dem private Konzerne den Extraktionismus betreiben, neuerdings mit Methoden Künstlicher Intelligenz.

    McCarthy ist übrigens derjenige, der ein paar Jahre vor seiner Cloud-Weissagung den Begriff „Künstliche Intelligenz“ erfand für eine damals noch ganz junge Disziplin, deren Hauptziel die „künstliche Informationsbeschaffung“ ist – so eine vielleicht angemessenere Übersetzung des englischen „artificial intelligence“. Eben diese Technologien werden heute von den Cloud-Firmen eingesetzt, um die dort gespeicherten Daten auszubeuten – und wir helfen dabei tatkräftig mit – mit jedem Foto, jedem Post, jedem Tweet, der in der Cloud landet …

    In China, im Land der „smart red cloud“, so der Name eines Social-Scoring-Portals für Kader der kommunistischen Partei Chinas, entsteht derweil eine staatsmonopolistische Variante des Überwachungs- und Vorhersage-Kapitalismus, die mit dem Silicon-Valley-Modell in Konkurrenz tritt. Gründe genug, eine Debatte um Alternativen jenseits des New Deal der Digitalkonzerne um Daten zu führen, der da lautet: Deine Daten gegen Bequemlichkeit, Überwachung inklusive. Wir brauchen eine Datenwende, genau wie wir auch eine Verkehrs- und Energiewende brauchen.

    Applications of Deep-Learning in Exploiting Large-Scale and Heterogeneous Compound Data in Industrial Pharmaceutical Research

     Cache   

    In recent years, the development of high-throughput screening (HTS) technologies and their establishment in an industrialized environment have given scientists the possibility to test millions of molecules and profile them against a multitude of biological targets in a short period of time, generating data in a much faster pace and with a higher quality than before. Besides the structure activity data from traditional bioassays, more complex assays such as transcriptomics profiling or imaging have also been established as routine profiling experiments thanks to the advancement of Next Generation Sequencing or automated microscopy technologies. In industrial pharmaceutical research, these technologies are typically established in conjunction with automated platforms in order to enable efficient handling of screening collections of thousands to millions of compounds. To exploit the ever-growing amount of data that are generated by these approaches, computational techniques are constantly evolving. In this regard, artificial intelligence technologies such as deep learning and machine learning methods play a key role in cheminformatics and bio-image analytics fields to address activity prediction, scaffold hopping, de novo molecule design, reaction/retrosynthesis predictions, or high content screening analysis. Herein we summarize the current state of analyzing large-scale compound data in industrial pharmaceutical research and describe the impact it has had on the drug discovery process over the last two decades, with a specific focus on deep-learning technologies.

    Rather than selling equipment to its plant and warehouse customers, Honeywell Intelligrated is creating solutions that include a range of technologies. As the name Intelligrated implies, Honeywell is acting like an integrator, by providing a range of equipment and software to solve warehouse, plant, and packaging solutions from concept to operation.

    “We’re expanding our smart robotic offerings to provide end-to-end solutions to make work cells more efficient,” Joseph Lui, VP and general manager of robotics, computer vision and AI at Honeywell Intelligrated, told Design News at PackExpo 2019. “We can be a single source for autonomation for our customers. That’s automation with a human touch.”

    Lui noted that the use of technology – including voice-guided solutions for workers to increase picking efficiencies and automated mobile robots for transporting items quickly – is just the start of the digital transformation of warehouse and manufacturing operations. “The next 10 years will see a revolution in how these centers work and operate,” said Lui.

    Partnering to Build a Collection of Technologies

    To accomplish this, Honeywell has brought together the expertise from a range of companies and equipment providers, including software vendors, universities, startups, and incubators. “In the digital technology space, we’re connecting warehouse operations to increase efficiencies by employing advanced solutions that include machine vision, smart robotics, augmented reality, and voice technologies,” said Lui.

    As part of the buildout for creating solutions, Honeywell has partnered with Fetch Robotics to provide autonomous mobile robots for effectively fulfilling orders. The robots operate safely alongside human workers to transport items through distribution centers without human guidance or fixed paths. Honeywell is also utilizing a number of other robot companies. “In additional to Fetch, Honeywell has created strategic partnerships and investments in Soft Robotics and Attabotics,” said Lui.

    In order to blend these technologies into solutions, Honeywell has created space where all the technologies can be integrated. “We’ve taken these investments, and established a robotics center of excellence,” said Lui.

    Curating a Collection of Technologies

    The investments to build out Honeywell’s logistics and packaging solutions reach beyond robotics and into advances that are still in world of academics and start-ups. “We’re investing in partnerships with software vendors, universities, startups, and incubators to create new solutions for both simple and complex needs,” said Lui.

    In order to reach some of the bleeding edge technology, Honeywell has engaged Carnegie Mellon University. “Our collaboration with AI researchers at Carnegie Mellon University’s National Robotics Engineering Center is helping to develop breakthrough technologies for distribution centers,” said Lui. “The focus is on building architecture relying on artificial intelligence and advanced robotic systems for advanced supply chain demands.”

    To support the packaged solutions, Honeywell has created platform that enables the technology elements. “Part of the collaboration comes from the Honeywell Universal Robotics Controller (HURC). This is a high-performance platform for vision, planning, and motion,” said Lui. “The HURC leverages the machine learning and robotic control software to provide the processing power to handle volumes of real-time data for faster perception and more effective action. The HURC uses a virtual environment for simulation, testing, and troubleshooting to drive rapid solution deployment.”

    Rob Spiegel has covered automation and control for 19 years, 17 of them for Design News. Other topics he has covered include supply chain technology, alternative energy, and cyber security. For 10 years, he was owner and publisher of the food magazine Chile Pepper.


              

    The Industry 4.0 Blueprint Is Being Rewritten by Startups

     Cache   
    (Image source:  xresch from Pixabay)

    The manufacturing industry is no stranger to misconceptions and buzzwords. Collaborative automation, Industry 4.0, artificial intelligence, blockchain – the real reason we allow ourselves to spin in circles on these topics is because we’re inherently hopeful and practical people: We want to build better and believe there is a path to doing so if we could only find the way.

    As part of my series to uncover what leaders in the manufacturing space are actually doing to build better, I sat down with Juan L. Aparicio Ojea, head of the research group for advanced manufacturing automation at Siemens. Aparicio Ojea’s role grants him unique insight into the latest research across universities, startups, and government agencies. Access to so many different types of technologies that are all working to provide value in one way or another has enabled him to create a simple blueprint for the key requirements of an Industry 4.0 system.

    Aparicio Ojea acknowledges that we’re far from seeing completed Industry 4.0 systems in practice. However, while it seems like startups are leading the charge, there are steps every manufacturing leader can and should be taking today.

    1.) Interoperability: One Solution from Many Parts

    Much of the challenge of bringing new technologies to the factory floor is in the interfaces between them. Aparicio Ojea asserted, “Being able to interoperate machines from different vendors is key.” These connections will allow for the flow of previously underutilized data, enabling faster integration and time to value.

    There are two schools of thought on this issue. Some, like Aparicio Ojea, believe that industry standardizations laid out by industrial consortiums, which includes frameworks for OPC UA and DDS, will be key. Others, like Andrew Scheuermann, CEO of Arch Systems, a data sensing startup, believe that the industry cannot wait for the long cycle of old equipment to be replaced.

    New technologies like collaborative robots already have to work together with legacy systems. So Arch Systems, which counts top tier electronics manufacturer’s among its customers, has built out an extensive library of software and hardware retrofit integrations where manufacturers can expedite a path towards interoperability with what is on their floors today, while leveraging modern standards for their new equipment.

    Universal Robots
    Universal Robots creates robots designed for manufacturing products with short life cycles (Image source: Universal Robots).

    2.) Modularity: One Piece That Can Fit in Many Places

    The second requirement is modularity, or as Aparicio Ojea clarifies, “not having a monolithic approach to manufacturing.” An easy-to-see example of modularity on an electronics factory floor is the surface mount assembly (SMA) line. Instead of one huge machine that can make only one kind of PCB, there are modular machines for each step in the process: solder paste deposition, pick and place machines, reflow ovens, and inspection.

    But the SMA process has been around for decades, so what does it mean in the modern context? It means the time for custom-built, single-purpose machines is coming to an end, to be replaced by generalized technologies that can be applied to a much wider variety of products and problems.

    Universal Robots, which was acquired by Teradyne in 2015, is tackling this by creating easy-to-program robot arms that can be reprogrammed to different functionalities when the program is over, enabling the technology to be viable for products with short life cycles (like consumer electronics).

    3.) Digital Twin: Model What Matters

    Aparicio Ojea believes the third element of the blueprint is the creation and use of a digital twin, or simulation, of factory processes. Here’s the point: If you want better outputs from your process (such as higher yields or higher throughput), as engineers we would measure the inputs (such as individual machine parameters) and to try to use statistics to figure out which variables matter. If you can find a mathematical correlation between the inputs and the outputs, you may be able to “turn the knobs” on the input parameters to get the outputs you need. A digital twin is the concept of doing that at a much larger scale, where the goal is to replicate every single process for a holistic model of the factory.

    digital twin, Siemens PLM, IoT, producability, manufacturing, greenfield, brownfield
    Digital twin technology allows design engineers to simulate the full design and manufacturing process. (Image source: Siemens PLM).

    While it’s possible there are successful implementations of true digital twins out in the wilds of the manufacturing world, in general, this is viewed as an aspirational concept. As Aparicio Ojea said, “It is not a greenfield, it is a brownfield” – meaning that most factories already exist and are filled with both legacy equipment and manual processes that are difficult to digitalize.

    While digital twins might be obtainable for highly automated bottling plants, it feels like fantasy for electronics assembly, which still has hundreds of human hands on the line. In those cases, leaders should focus on wrapping their arms around the data they can get at the highest possible resolution, if not from the process, then from the products themselves. Engineers can use this data to create these correlations the old fashioned way – with experiments, spreadsheets, and statistics.

    4.) Flexibility: Pieces That Can Adapt

    Arguably the most exciting element of the blueprint is flexibility. This element is all about reducing waste – not scrap waste, but equipment waste. Single-purpose machines are not easily repurposed, and yet are how short life cycle production lines have been able to automate to date.

    How do we create more flexibility in the production process and the machines we use? AI, computer vision, and robotics can be combined to enable machines that are both more adaptable to variation, and more adaptable from product to product. A quick example is in the quality control process, where camera systems can program themselves to find anomalies more broadly during an inspection – allowing greater inspection coverage than humans or traditional quality control.

    Where to Start?

    How does one adopt Industry 4.0 technologies and embody these smart manufacturing principles? Aparicio Ojea recommends investing in two key areas: digitalization and strategic partnerships. Without digitalization there will be no data foundation, a requirement for a wide array of initiatives. Simply decreasing paper processes represents a first step that many can take. When it comes time to adopt innovative technologies, Aparicio Ojea recommends, “viewing vendors as strategic partners and having a co-creation mentality. Partnering with a startup, automation vendor, or university and working together to solve a problem that has a real KPI and a clear goal merits investment now.”

    Aparicio Ojea specializes in these types of strategic partnerships for Siemens Corporate Technology. He views partnerships as opportunities for cutting edge technology to solve larger problems that have concrete ROI for big businesses. For instance, Siemens Corporate Technology has partnered with Sewbo in an ARM-funded project. Sewbo is a startup tackling automated garment production by incorporating a solution that stiffens fabrics. By reframing the problem of movement and variation, Sewbo (in conjunction with Siemens, UC Berkeley, and Bluewater Defense) has the opportunity to overhaul the status quo manual practices of the entire garment industry.

    With so much expensive groundwork, is Industry 4.0 worth all of the buzz? Aparicio Ojea views it as an “evolution, rather than a revolution.” New technologies absolutely merit investment, but he advises that leaders to stick to technologies that make their processes better today and lay the foundation for the future.

    Those new technologies may very well come from startups, which are reframing Industry 4.0 roadblocks and applying novel solutions. In order to stay competitive in this ever changing international landscape, it will be these technology investments today that differentiate the winners and losers tomorrow.

    Indian start-ups can create 12 lakh direct jobs by 2025

     Cache   
    New Delhi: India's start-up ecosystem has the potential to create up to 12.5 lakh direct jobs by 2025, from 3.9-4.3 lakh direct jobs in 2019, according to a new report from industry body National Association of Software and Services Companies (Nasscom).

    The number of indirect jobs created by the start-up ecosystem in India can jump to 39-44 lakh by 2025 from 14-16 lakh jobs this year, said the report titled "India's Tech Start-up Ecosystem".

    "India's talent base is expanding beyond large cities as fresh graduates are choosing to stay back in non-metropolitan cities. These individuals have an almost similar exposure to technologies via the Internet. This enables the founders to recruit quality talent at a relatively lesser cost - allowing better runway and also a base for growth," said the report.

    The analysis suggests that the Indian start-up ecosystem has the potential to grow about four times by 2025, it added.

    The research found that 18 per cent of all start-ups are now leveraging deep-tech and fintech, enterprise, and retail tech which are the most mature sectors with strong metrics across dimensions.

    "There is increased activity in edtech, retail & retail tech, HR, and healthtech technology start-ups with significant improvement in sectors like agritech, aerospace, defence and space," said the report that Nasscom brought out in collaboration with global management and strategy consulting firm Zinnov.

    Since 2014, the deep-tech start-up pool in India has grown at 40 per cent compound annual growth rate. The study found that while Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning is being deployed heavily in enterprise, fintech and healthtech, deep-tech adoption is actually pervasive across sectors.

    Total investment in start-up ecosystem has increased by 16 per cent year-on-year in 2019 - during the January to August period, said the report.

    Smartphone Android sekarang ini memang sudah berevelusi menjadi sebuah Perangkat Pintar yang bisa diandalkan dalam beragam hal, bukan hanya untuk melakukan Komunikasi jarak jauh saja, melainkan dengan Smartphone Android kalian juga bisa menikmati beragam hiburan dan bisa juga untuk memudahkan pekerjaan dan menyalurkan hobi.

    Selain itu, sekarang ini Teknologi dan Inovasi yang ada pada sebuah Smartphone Android juga sudah sangat canggih dan mutakhir, apalagi belakangan ini rata-rata Smartphone Android sudah dibekali dengan Mesin yang bisa berpikir sendiri, yang kerap dinamakan dengan Artificial Intelligence.

    Sehingga, kata "Smartphone" itu memang sudah tercerminkan pada Smartphone dengan OS Android tersebut, karena Smartphone Android memang sudah menjelma menjadi sebuah Perangkat yang multifungsi.

    Hal menarik lainnya yang ada pada sebuah Smartphone Android ialah variasinya yang sangat banyak, hal ini terjadi karena sifat OS Android yang Open Source, sehingga pihak Google selaku pengembang dari OS Android tersebut, memang mendistribusikan dan melisensikan kerjasama ke Produsen Smartphone Maker.

    Maka, tidak mengherankan sekarang ini ada banyak sekali ragam dari Smartphone Android dengan berbagai jenis Desain, Brand Merek, Spesifikasi, Inovasi dan tentu saja Harga yang juga sangat variatif dan kompetitif.

    Berlanjut kehal teknis lainnya, meski sama-sama menggunakan OS Android, faktanya Smartphone Android itu bisa berbeda, satu sama lainnya, umumnya perbedaan tersebut bisa kita lihat pada :

    • Segmentasi Kelasnya
    • Spesifikasi yang digunakan
    • Inovasi yang ditawarkan
    • Desain & Estitka
    • Branding

    Sehingga, pasti saja setiap Smartphone Android itu tidak sama, apalagi yang sudah berbeda nama Brand, misalnya Smartphone Android Oppo dan Samsung, meski sama-sama menggunakan OS Android sebagai OS utamanya.

    Faktanya kedua Brand Smartphone Android ini juga sangat berbeda, perbedaan tersebut datang dari hal yang sudah kami jelaskan diatas.

    Selanjutnya, dari bagian Spesifikasi pun juga terlihat jelas terkait Kelas dari Smartphone Android tersebut, jika Smartphone Android tersebut, memiliki Segmentasi Pasar kelas atas, tentu Spesifikasi yang diusung tidaklah main-main.

    Tetapi, jika Smartphone Android tersebut ditargetkan dikelas bawah (Entry-level), maka kalian harus pusa dengan Spesifikasi alakadarnya saja, dengan tanpa adanya sebuah Inovasi Teknologi yang mahal.

    Jika dilihat dari Spesifikasi, maka kita bisa membedakan Smartphone Android satu sama lainnya, dengan beberapa Point dibawah ini :

    1. Jenis Processor dan kecepatannya
    2. Jumlah Kapasitas RAM dan Storage
    3. Fitur Kamera
    4. Inovasi tingkat lanjut, biasanya Exclusive buatan Produsen Smartphone Android terkait
    5. Build Quality
    6. Display Panel Layar

    Dengan beberapa Point diatas, tentunya kalian bisa dengab mudah melakukan Identifikasi dari sebuah Smartphone Android, jika Spesifikasi yang digunakan pada Smartphone Android tersebut tergolong "Premium".

    Maka, bisa kalian asumsikan bahwa Smartphone Android tersebut paling tidak berada dikelas Menengah Keatas minimalnya, tentu dengan harga jual yang cukup tinggi tentunya.

    Selanjutnya, Spesifikasi yang Premium tersebut juga tidak bisa menjadi acuan bahwa Spesifikasi yang digunakan tersebut akan selamanya berfungsi dengan baik atau mampu memiliki Performa yang bagus dalam waktu yang lama.

    Inilah yang akan kita bahas kali ini, yaitu terkait masalah salah satu Spesifikasi pada Smartphone Android, yaitu adalah terkait masalah Display Panel.

    Seperti yang kalian ketahui, saat ini ada beragam jenis Display Panel yang digunakan pada Smartphone Android Modern sekarang ini, untuk lebih jelasnya, kalian bisa mengetahui Jenis dan Tipe Display Panel Layar di Smartphone Android dengan mengunjungi halaman dibawah ini :


    Untuk lebih mempertegas pembahasan kita kali ini, maka kami hanya akan mebicarakan Solusi terkait masalah yang ada pada Display Panel OLED / AMOLED saja.


    OLED / AMOLED (Android Display Panel)


    Untuk kalian ketahui sebelumnya, OLED / AMOLED ini memang merupakan sebuah Display Panel Premium yang bisa menghasilkan gambar yang spektakuler, terang, detail dan kaya warna.

    Sehingga, biasanya Display Panel ini memang hanya diperuntukan untuk Smartphone Android / Smartphone Non-Android dengan Segmentasi pasar minimal kelas menengah, karena biaya Produksinya memang agak mahal dibandingkan jenis Display Panel LCD (IPS / TFT).

    Secara keseluruhan Panel Layar OLED / AMOLED tersebut memang sangat memuaskan untuk dimiliki dan digunakan, karena mata kalian akan sangat dimanjakan dengan kekayaan dan kejelasan warna yang ditampilkan secara nyata.

    Maka wajar saja, jika banyak orang menyebutkan bahwa Panel Layar OLED / AMOLED tersebut, merupakan Display Panel terbaik untuk sebuah Perangkat Elekronik, karena memang benar-benar bagus dibandingkan dengan jenis Display Panel lainnya.

    Untuk kelian ketahui sendiri, Display Panel OLED / AMOLED itu memiliki beberapa versi revisi, atau mudahnya bisa kita sebut dengan versi penyempurnanya, yaitu adalah sebagai berikut :

    • P-OLED
    • Super AMOLED
    • Dynamic AMOLED
    • Fluid AMOLED

    Lalu, masing-masing versi Layar OLED dan AMOLED tersebut juga memiliki versi "Enhancement" lain seperti bertambahnya embel-embel "+" "Plus" atupun "Advanced", tetapi semua hal tersebut memang merupakan turunan dari Display Panel induk, yaitu adalah OLED.

    *** AMOLED pun juga adalah turunan dari versi OLED yang sudah disempurnakan. ***

    Apakah kalian tahu, jenis Display Panel revisi OLED apa yang paling banyak digunakan sekarang ini?

    Jika, kalian tidak tahu jawabannya adalah Super AMOLED, sejatinya Super AMOLED memang menjadi Display Panel pilihan banyak Produsen Smartphone Android untuk bisa menghasilkan gambar yang sangat terang, detail dan kaya warna.

    Hanya saja, meski Super AMOLED tersebut mendapat feedback yang sangat baik oleh penggunannya, tetap saja masih ada beragam Kekurangan dari Panel Jenis Super AMOLED tersebut.

    Untuk lebih jelasnya, silahkan kalian lihat detail Kekurangan dan Kelebihan Layar Super AMOLED pada halaman dibawah ini :


    Lalu, tahukan kalian ada satu buah masalah yang memang benar-benar menjadi sebuah petaka dan dipastikan akan terjadi di Semua Smartphone Android dengan Layar OLED / AMOLED tersebut?

    Ya! masalah tersebut adalah munculnya kasus Burn-in atau kerap yang disebut sebagai penyakit Layar Shadow AMOLED / OLED / Super AMOLED.

    Inilah yang akan kita bahas kali ini, yaitu terkait masalah Burn-in atau Shadow tersebut, disini kami akan menjabarkan bagaimana cara untuk menghindari masalah tersebut, agar bisa diminimalisir kemunculannya.

    Tetapi, sebelum itu kalian harus pahami dulu, apa sih itu OLED / AMOLED yang Burn-in atau Shadow?


    OLED / AMOLED Burn-in (Shadow)


    Satu hal yang harus kalian ketahui dari masalah yang mengesalkan ini, yaitu sifatnya yang Permanent atau tidak bisa diperbaiki, jika kalian tidak menggantikannya dengan Part Layar yang baru!

    Tentu saja tidak ada yang suka dengan sebuah Kerusakan yang Permanent tersebut, apalagi dalam kasus ini munculnya di Layar Smartphone Android kalian, tentu saja akan membuat kalian tidak nyaman dalam memandangi Smartphone Android yang kalian gunakan sekarang.

    Masalah ini hanya terjadi pada Smartphone Android ataupun Non-Android Smartphone dengan jenis Display Panel OLED dan turunannya seperti AMOLED, Super AMOLED, Dynamic AMOLED dan lainnya.

    Sehingga, jika kalian pengguna Smartphone Android dengan Display Panel LCD seperti IPS ataupun TFT, kalian tidak perlu khwatir, karena masalah Burn-in atau Shadow ini tidak akan terjadi pada Smartphone Android yang kalian gunakan.

    Lalu, apa penyebab munculnya masalah Burn-in atau Shadow tersebut?

    1. Masalah Burn-in (Shadow) tersebut terjadi karena Pixel RGB pada Panel OLED / AMOLED tidak lagi berkerja secara responsif, karena memang sudah tidak mampu lagi menyalurkan warna yang seharusnya dan terkesan meninggalkan jejak / Bekas, inilah yang kerap disebut dengan Shadow tersebut.
    1. Selanjutnya, masalah Burn-in (Shadow) ini juga bisa muncul, karena Lapisan Kaca atas dari Panel OLED / AMOLED tersebut terbakar karena panasnya Pixel, umumnya ditemukan pada kasus pengguna yang selalu menggunakan opsi Full Brightness setiap saat, sehingga akan menimbulkan bekas cetak dengan warna merah kehitaman ataupun merah keunguan.

    Untuk pemicu masalah ini ada beragam, bisa jadi terkait efek penggunaan yang tidak hati-hati dan tidak wajar dan bisa juga datang dari kecacatan Produk Layar Smartphone Android itu sendiri.

    Kasus Burn-in atau Shadow ini bisa dikategorikan dengan tingkat masalahnya yaitu adalah sebagai berikut :

    1. Burn-in (Shadow) kerusakan tingkat rendah, biasanya tidak begitu terlihat dan masih bisa tersamarkan.
    2. Burn-in (Shadow) kerusakan tingkat menengah, sudah bisa terlihat, tetapi dalam skala yang kecil dan warna Burn-in atau Shadow-nya tidak begitu pekat, terkesan masih Transparent.
    3. Burn-in (Shadow) kerusakan tingkat tinggi, tampilan Layar OLED / AMOLED pada Smartphone Android kalian sudah tidak layak pakai lagi, karena sudah tertutupi oleh masalah Burn-in atau Shadow yang terlihat sangat jelas dan mengganggu penglihatan.

    Sehingga, sebelum masalah ini menimpa kalian, maka ada baiknya jika kalian menghindari masalah munculnya kasus Burn-in atau Shadow tersebut dengan beberapa saran yang telah kami buat dibawah ini.


    Menghindari masalah Burn-in / Shadow di Layar OLED / AMOLED


    Jika kalian khwatir terkait munculnya masalah Burn-in atau Shadow tersebut dalam waktu yang cepat, maka kalian bisa memperlambat munculnya masalah tersebut dengan beberapa Tips dibawah ini.

    Kalian tidak perlu khwatir, jika kalian menggunakan beberapa saran kami dibawah ini, maka masalah Burn-in / Shadow tersebut tidak akan muncul dalam kurun waktu kurang dari 1 tahun dan umumnya Display Panel Smartphone Android kalian tetap akan memiliki Performa yang baik untuk tahun-tahun berikutnya.

    Kecuali, kalian menggunakan Smartphone Android berjenis Layar OLED / AMOLED dengan kualitas yang buruk ataupun ada kecacatan dalam Produksi, maka beberapa Tips dibawah ini, tidak akan bisa begitu membantu kalian. 

    Apa saja hal yang harus kalian lakukan untuk menghindari masalah Burn-in / Shadow pada Smartphone Android dengan Layar OLED / AMOLED tersebut?

    Silahkan ikuti semua yang kami sebutkan dibawah ini.


    Hindari Full Brightness yang terlalu lama


    Pemicu utama kemunculan kasus Burn-in / Shadow pada Layar OLED / AMOLED tersebut, memang sebagian besarnya datang dari fitur Brightness yang disetting ke Mode Full Brightness terlalu lama.

    Sehingga, akan menyebabkan Pixel RGB pada Panel OLED / AMOLED menjadi Over-Action, setelahnya dipastikan akan muncul kasus Burn-in atau Shadow tersebut, kebanyakan kasus munculnya masalah Burn-in / Shadow tersebut memang muncul dari masalah ini.

    Apalagi, jika kalian menggunakan Mode Full Brightness langsung disiang bolong dibawah sinar matahari langsung dengan durasi waktu yang sangat sering dan lama, maka yakin saja, dalam waktu dekat maka masalah Burn-in / Shadow tersebut akan muncul.

    Itulah kenapa, kebanyakan masalah Layar OLED / AMOLED yang menjadi Burn-in / Shadow, bisanya banyak ditemui pada pengguna Smartphone Android yang memang lebih banyak menggunakan Smartphone Androidnya langsung dibawah terik matahari denga durasi yang panjang.

    Sebenarnya, kalian tidak perlu khwatir untuk masalah ini, hal yang perlu kalian lakukan adalah sebagai berikut :

    1. Setting Manual Brightness jika berada dibawah terik sinar matahari langsung, jangan Setting ke Full Brightness, setting dan sesuaikan saja dengan penglihatan kalian.
    1. Setting ke Mode Auto Brightness, jika kalian sudah tidak berada diluar ruangan atau sudah tidak lagi terpapar sinar matahari langsung, hal ini bertujuan agar Panel OLED / AMOLED menjadi Resposif dan Adaptable dengan beragam kondisi.

    Selain itu melakukan kedua hal diatas juga akan sangat menguntungkan, karena Konsumsi Daya Battery pada Smartphone Android kalian bisa menjadi lebih irit tentunya.


    Hindari penggunaan Visual yang Statis


    Perlu kalian ketahui, biasanya masalah Burn-in / Shadow pada Smartphone Android dengan Layar OLED / AMOLED itu biasanya kerusakannya terpicu dikarenakan komposisi Visual pada Smartphone Android kalian yang sifatnya Statis dan sudah dibiarkan terlalu lama.

    Seperti misalnya, kalian menggunakan Icon dengan peletakan yang sepert itu-itu saja, menggunakan Wallpaper dan Launcher yang juga itu-itu saja juga, maka masalah Burn-in / Shadow akan lebih besar kemungkinannya akan muncul.

    Karena, masalah Burn-in / Shadow tersebut paling banyak terjadi dan muncul pada bagian Status Bar dan juga Navigation bar, kenapa?

    Alasannya sederhana saja, karena peletakannya yang statis dan tidak berpindah atau berganti dari waktu-kewaktu.

    OLED AMOLED Shadow Burn-in, Cara atasi agar AMOLED tidak Shadow, apa itu Shadow AMOLED, apa itu Shadow OLED, apa itu Burn-in AMOLED, apa itu Burn-in OLED, agar Android tidak Shadow, cara merawat layar Android, cara menghindari Shadow dan Burn-in AMOLED, Layar Super AMOLED Shadow, Contoh Layar Shadow Android, Kenapa muncul Shadow di layar Android, kenapa muncul bayangan di Layar Android

    Maka dari itu, kalian bisa meminilisirkan masalah munculnya kasus Burn-in / Shadow tersebut dengan cara menghindari visul yang statis tersebut dengan cara :

    1. Secara rutin berganti Launcher.
    2. Rutin mengganti Wallpaper.
    3. Penggunaan Live Wallpaper akan lebih direkomendasikan, meski akan membuat Konsumsi daya baterai lebih besar.
    4. Secara berkala mengganti atau memindahkan peletakan Icon.
    5. Jika menggunakan fitur Always on Display (AOD), pastikan aplikasi AOD tersebut tidak memiliki Bugs atau Error.
    6. Jika memang bisa, silahkan gonta-ganti Themes, jika memang tersedia dan bisa dilakukan.

    Dengan menerapkan hal diatas, maka potensi terjadinya kasus Burn-in / Shadow tersebut, akan drastis ter-minimalisir, karena pada kasus ini kalian tidak lagi menggunakan Tampilan Visual yang Statis lagi.


    Atur Screen Time-out maksimal 30 Detik


    Nah, ini juga menjadi salah satu hal penting, keterkaitannya akan sangat kuat dengan Static Visual yang sudah kami jelaskan diatas.

    Maka dari itu, agar Layar Smartphone Android kalian tidak terlalu lama Stuck / Idel pada tampilan Visual yang tidak berubah (Karena memang tidak digunakan), maka lebih baik kalian melakukan Set Time Out maksimal ke 30 Detik, kurang dari itu, misalnya 15 Detik bahkan lebih baik lagi.

    OLED AMOLED Shadow Burn-in, Cara atasi agar AMOLED tidak Shadow, apa itu Shadow AMOLED, apa itu Shadow OLED, apa itu Burn-in AMOLED, apa itu Burn-in OLED, agar Android tidak Shadow, cara merawat layar Android, cara menghindari Shadow dan Burn-in AMOLED, Layar Super AMOLED Shadow, Contoh Layar Shadow Android, Kenapa muncul Shadow di layar Android, kenapa muncul bayangan di Layar Android

    Sehingga, setelah maksimal 30 Detik Smartphone Android kalian tidak digunakan / kondisi Idle, maka secara otomatis Smartphone Android kalian akan masuk pada Mode Sleep lagi, cara ini akan sangat besar dampaknya untuk meminimalisir terjadinya kasus Burn-in / Shadow.


    Gunakan Dark Mode (Night Mode)


    Ini adalah salah satu Trick untuk menghindari masalah Burn-in / Shadow pada Smartphone Android dengan jenis layar OLED / AMOLED tersebut.

    Mekanisme utamanya adalah dengan membuat sebagian besar tampilan aplikasi / system OS Android menjadi hitam, karena seperti yang kalian ketahui, Layar OLED / AMLOMED tersebut akan sangat awet digunakan, jika kalian menggunakan Konfigurasi warna yang hitam secara dominan.

    OLED AMOLED Shadow Burn-in, Cara atasi agar AMOLED tidak Shadow, apa itu Shadow AMOLED, apa itu Shadow OLED, apa itu Burn-in AMOLED, apa itu Burn-in OLED, agar Android tidak Shadow, cara merawat layar Android, cara menghindari Shadow dan Burn-in AMOLED, Layar Super AMOLED Shadow, Contoh Layar Shadow Android, Kenapa muncul Shadow di layar Android, kenapa muncul bayangan di Layar Android

    Umumnya, jika kalian mengaktifkan Dark Mode / Night Mode tersebut, maka beberapa aplikasi Android lain juga akan berubah warna menjadi Dark.

    Keuntungan lainnya, selain akan memperpanjang usia pakai Layar OLED / AMOLED tersebut, cara ini juga akan membuat Konsumsi Daya Baterai menjadi sangat minimal dan irit.


    Gunakan Icon, Themes dan Wallpaper OLED / AMOLED Friendly


    Selanjutnya, jika kalian tidak bisa menggunakan fitur Dark Mode / Night Mode seperti yang sudah kami jelaskan diatas.

    Maka, kalian tetap bisa meminimalisir munculnya kasus Burn-in / Shadow tersebut dengan cara menggunakan Themes dengan komposisi warna Hitam atau Dark Grey, jika memang bisa.

    Selanjutnya, kalian juga harus menggunakan Icon Pack yang sudah mendapat Predikat OLED / AMOLED Friendly, karena umumnya jenis Icon ini akan memunculkan warna yang Soft, sehingga tidak terlalu menyiksa Layar OLED / AMOLED tersebut.

    Jika, kalian bisa mengaktifkan Dark Mode / Night Mode di Smartphone Android yang kalian gunakan saat ini, maka kombinasi dengan Themes, Icon dan Wallpaper yang OLED / AMOLED Frinedly tersebut, akan menjadi kombinasi yang sangat baik dan akan bisa memperlama umur dari Layar OLED / AMOLED yang digunakan tersebut.


    Sembunyikan Statusbar dan Navigation Bar


    Seperti yang sudah kami singgung diatas, umumnya masalah Burn-in atau Shadow tersebut paling banyak muncul akibat dari tampilan Status Bar dan Navigation Bar yang memang bersifat Fixed / Static Visual.

    Maka, kalian sebenarnya bisa saja menghindari hal tersebut dengan cara menyembunyikan Status Bar dan Navigation Bar tersebut, tetapi untuk Status Bar mungkin agak risih untuk disembunyikan, karena memang sangat diperlukan untuk melihat Jam dan Notifikasi.

    Tetapi, tidak untuk Navigation Bar, ada 3 cara yang bisa kalian lakukan untuk menghindari Burn-in / Shadow pada Navigation Bar tersebut, ialah sebagai berikut :

    1. Mengganti Style Icon Navigation Bar dan harus menggunakan Background Hitam.
    2. Membuat Navigation Bar auto-hide jika tidak sedang digunakan.
    3. Mengganti fungsi Navigation Bar dengan Gesture.

    Kalau, kami sendiri lebih memilih menggunakan Gesture, karena selain bisa menghilangkan Navigation Bar Panel tersebut, menggunakan Navigation Gesture ini akan membuat Smartphone Android yang digunakan tampak lebih Modern dan kekinian.

    Selanjutnya, jika memang bisa, lebih baik Status Bar dan Navigation Bar Panel tersebut memang disembunyikan saja, jika tidak memungkinkan untuk menyembunyikan Statur Bar, paling tidak kalian bisa menyembunyikan Navigation Bar Panel tersebut.


    Gunakan AOD yang berwarna dan selalu berpindah tempat


    Seperti yang kalian ketahui, Layar OLED / AMOLED itu memang memiliki keunggulan untuk bisa menjalankan fitur Always on Display (AOD) secara maksimal dengan Konsumsi Daya Battery yang sangat minimal.

    Apalagi, jika Smartphone Android terkait itu tidak memiliki fitur LED Notifikasi, maka sudah jelas fitur AOD ini akan menjadi andalan, karena memang bisa memunculkan Notifikasi secara Real Time.

    Hanya saja, dari beberapa kasus masalah Layar OLED / AMOLED yang menjadi Burn-in / Shadow tersebut memang bisa muncul akibat penggunaan dari fitur AOD tersebut.

    Alasannya sederhana saja, karena fitur AOD ini akan selalu aktif jika kondisi Smartphone Android Idle, maka sudah pasti jika fitur AOD yang digunakan tidak canggih dan dengan Kombinasi warna yang terang, maka sudah pasti akan memunculkan masalah Burn-in / Shadow jika digunakan dalam durasi waktu yang lama.

    Masalah utamanya sama saja, yaitu akibat dari penggunaan Visual yang Statis, maka dari itu pastikan kalian menggunakan fitur AOD yang memiliki fungsi terus berpindah dalam setiap jamnya, agar tidak memunculkan Static Visual.

    Selanjutnya, hindari penggunaan tampilan AOD dengan warna Solid, seperti misalnya warna Putih, Hijau, Merah, Biru dan lainnya.

    Selalu gunakan warna kombinasi atau Gradient, jika tidak bisa atau fiturnya tidak tersedia, paling tidak gunakanlah Background berwarna, agar Pixel pada OLED / AMOLED tidak hanya fokus ke tampilan layar AOD yang Static tersebut.

    OLED AMOLED Shadow Burn-in, Cara atasi agar AMOLED tidak Shadow, apa itu Shadow AMOLED, apa itu Shadow OLED, apa itu Burn-in AMOLED, apa itu Burn-in OLED, agar Android tidak Shadow, cara merawat layar Android, cara menghindari Shadow dan Burn-in AMOLED, Layar Super AMOLED Shadow, Contoh Layar Shadow Android, Kenapa muncul Shadow di layar Android, kenapa muncul bayangan di Layar Android

    Meski demikian, hal ini akan membuat Konsumsi Daya Baterai lebih boros sedikit, dibandingkan dengan penggunaan AOD dengan tampilan yang sangat minimal.

    Dengan demikian, berakhirlah sudah pembahasan kita kali ini, kami sarankan lebih baik kalian ikuti saja semua hal yang sudah kami sebutkan diatas, karena cara yang kami bagikan diatas memang bersumber dari saran para Professional.

    Intinya, merawat dan menjaga Smartphone Android dengan jenis Layar OLED / AMOLED tersebut memang rada "Tricky" dan tidak bisa sebebas menggunakan Smartphone dengan layar IPS.

    Tetapi, itulah harga yang harus kalian bayar jika ingin menikmati gambar visual yang benar-benar bagus dan memanjakan mata, melalui Display Panel OLED / AMOLED tersebut.

    Selanjutnya, jika kalian bisa menerapkan hal diatas, maka paling tidak Layar OLED / AMOLED di Smartphone Android kalian akan bisa bertahan tanpa rusak paling tidak untuk 1-2 tahun kedepan atau lebih.

    Karena, jika rusak terlalu dini, apalagi garansinya sudah habis / hangus atau tidak dijamin garansi, maka biaya reparasi untuk penggantian Part Layar OLED / AMOLED itu akan membutuhkan biaya yang tidak sedikit, yaitu akan menghabiskan biaya hingga jutaan rupiah untuk satu Unit Display Panel saja.

    Itulah kenapa, kalian harus benar-benar bisa merawat Layar OLED / AMOLED tersebut semaksimal mungkin, agar tidak merugikan kalian.

    Akhir kata, semoga artikel ini bisa bermanfaat untuk kalian, ada yang kalian harapkan bisa terkabul dan juga semoga hari kalian menyenangkan. P.AW ~ DRD

Presumably, the bot developed this artificial intelligence bias from its machine learning basics.

    Samsung's quest to reinvent the TV in the age of convergence

     Cache   
    Samsung

    2.jpgSamsung's Park with the latest QLED TV model. The company believes rivals in the so-called OLED camp will eventually follow their technology.

    Eleven years ago, a year before Steve Jobs introduced the first iPhone, Samsung Electronics swept past then arch-rival Sony to become number one in liquid crystal display (LCD) TVs. At the time, the company was known more in the business world as an enterprise memory chip supplier, an underappreciated commodity both then and now. In the mass market, it was making its name known to consumers with its slider feature phones, challenging the hegemonies of Nokia and Motorola.
    It was a symbolic and energizing moment for the South Korean tech giant. It spurred its growth and gave the company the confidence that is now integral to its DNA. Today, Samsung is the only rival to Apple in smartphones and its memory chip unit has grown to a massive cash generator.
    In TVs it still holds the world's top position. Samsung LCD TVs, according to Statista, had a market share of 21.6 percent in 2016, near double that of LG Electronics' 11.9 percent. Samsung is also the largest vendor of smart TVs. Samsung's Visual Display (VD) business, the company's own TV unit, is proud of that achievement even today, despite being overshadowed by the higher margins of Samsung phones and semiconductors. But in contrast to Sony's 35-year reign in CRT TVs, arguably a lot more has happened in the past decade in technology and society.
    Of course, there is the smartphone, which changed the way content is consumed content and shifted consumer expectations; the continuing evolution of flat-panel displays, with Samsung's move to QLED and the formation of the B2B Display unit; artificial intelligence (AI); big data and the cloud; and new services emerging from the "abundance of data" that are changing what devices can do when grouped together. For Samsung, global leadership brought with it new objectives and new anxieties.
    Today, Samsung believes that with changing consumer expectations, crisper image-rendering displays, and new data-intensive services, we are at the dawn of a paradigm shift in the definition of a TV. The company's VD executives shared with ZDNet the challenges they face as the world's largest innovation vendor.

    'OLED is a dead-end; QLED is the future'

    Like the insatiable desire for faster connectivity and more storage, the desire for life-like TV images will never change. Samsung's introduction of quantum-dot (QD) LCD TVs in 2015 -- branded SUHD then but now QLED -- was a statement of where the future lay, said Changbae Park, senior manager at product strategy team of the VD business.
    Just a few years ago, the South Korean tech giant was heavily promoting OLED (organic light-emitting diode), butting heads with compatriot LG Electronics. It seemed OLED would be the next fight between the Koreans in their half-century-long rivalry in TVs.

    Until Samsung introduced QD LCD TVs, that is. Put simply, a QD film is layered on the LCD that enhances the colour accuracy and range. Samsung began researching the core technology of QD materials 10 years ago with display applications in mind. But while Sony gave up on QD LCD in 2013 due to the need to use cadmium, which is harmful to humans, Samsung managed to overcome this. (Sony also gave up on OLED in 2010 after being the first to introduce an OLED TV in 2007.)
    "We concluded that OLED was a dead-end," said Park. "There were a lot of fundamental problems with OLED, such as the burn-in, especially for over 65-inch large size TVs, which is difficult to overcome, and a limited brightness that's inadequate for HDR (high dynamic range).
    "The choice was neither easy nor difficult. It was just an inevitable, logical choice on our part, if you consider what the consumers would want," the senior manager said. "I can categorically say that we do not plan to shift back to OLED. As a leader, it is not a responsible choice. Not now or in the future."
    OLED uses organic materials that fundamentally limit the display's lifespan and causes burn-in, Park said. "Ask any retailers about burn-ins, and they will know."
    Conversely, QLED uses inorganic materials that are more stable, meaning it doesn't have this problem. "We believe, ultimately, that the so-called OLED camp will, in the end, move towards QLED, and follow our lead," Park added.

    "Internally, we have a roadmap. I don't want to say when, but we are heading towards an even more sophisticated technology with self-light-emitting quantum-dot diode. It will most likely be faster than people think it will be." Backlight will be removed and the QD material will emit light on its own.
    Brightness matters
    One of the key advantages that OLED does have over QLED is the black levels. Park admitted that OLED has better black than QLED in pitch-darkness, but do the majority of consumers really watch their TVs in the dark?
    Samsung surveyed TV owners in five countries -- South Korea, the US, Germany, Mexico and Vietnam. It asked those who bought a TV within three months which of three statements best describes how they watch their most recently purchased TV: In a bright environment with lights on; in a dimly-lit environment with adjusted lighting; or in a dark environment with all lights turned off.
    In South Korea, 46.8 percent said they watch in a bright environment, while 32 percent said they dim the lights, and 21.2 percent said they turn off the lights. In the US, this was 16.4 percent, 49.6 percent, and 34 percent, respectively. In Germany, it was 17.2 percent, 56.8 percent, and 26 percent; in Mexico it was 16.8 percent, 41.6 percent, and 41.6 percent; and in Vietnam, it was 46 percent, 46.8 percent, and 7.2 percent.
    Overall, Samsung found that more than two-thirds of regular consumers globally watch with the lights on or dimmed, but never completely off.

    201707311402076pymc4cbb.gifSamsung claims TV's brightness is the most important for the best picture in real use environment.

    Only when the lights are completely off does OLED's black standout, and therefore, the company argues, the advantage is really minimal. The US' IES (Illuminating Engineering Society) and Germany's DIN (German Institute of Standardization) recommend living-room lighting of between 50 to 100 lux. Korea Standards Association suggests 150 to 300 lux.
    Park hit out at the current procedure for of TV testing, where new releases are tested in dark rooms, close to a theatre setting. "When the majority of consumers watch TV at bright settings, shouldn't the way experts measure TV change?" Park is among several figures in support of the need for this change, arguing that display measurement must be considered in use case environments.
    Samsung is now keen to expand HDR availability. Earlier this year, it partnered with Amazon in HDR10, and is working with Hollywood to make it the de factor standard in film making.
    "HDR is of keen interest in the display, broadcasting, content, and film industries," Park said. "Life-like picture quality is the key to maximizing the potential of HDR. You need wide colour gamut and colour volume. The bar for brightness and width of colour gamut will get higher and higher, and QLED [which Samsung claims to have brightness up to 2000 nit] is the only one that can deliver. QLED also reduces the light reflect to extremely low levels, thereby producing an optimized black fit for bright settings."
    QLED TVs accounted for 6 percent of Samsung's total shipments in 2016. In revenue it accounted for 16 percent, while in profits, it contributed 27 percent. This has near doubled this year -- accounting for 10 percent of Samsung's total shipment as of June, 23 percent of revenue, and 38 percent of profits. The total contribution for 2017 may decline overall but it will still be a strong growth from last year, Samsung believes.
    "Our yield rate for quantum dot materials has increased drastically since 2015," Park added. "Like LED TVs before it, as we become more cost-effective and receive positive reception from consumers, QLED TVs will become a mass market product, eventually."
    "We believe that QLED will be the future of TVs. The industry will follow," said Kim Hyun-suk, president of the VD business -- the top boss of TVs at Samsung. "By strengthening this momentum, we will stay committed to maintaining our status as the top global TV manufacturer."
    Trial and error
    Samsung first put the app store in its convergence TVs in 2010, and the following year, it renamed them smart TVs. "It worked for phones, so we thought, 'why can't there be a smart TV," said Sangsook Han, vice president of Service Business team under the VD unit. "In the beginning, we did think of it more in terms of a 'TV version' of the smartphone.
    "We didn't think seriously enough that those who use TVs had different expectations to those who use a smartphone," the VP said. "It was a learning experience. Looking back, I think it was a worthwhile attempt. It didn't increase our profits, but it shows our commitment to try something new as the leader."

    1.jpgSamsung's Han and the service team at the VD unit started to focus on the smart TV as a content hub. ReLim Studio 1

    The initial reaction to smart TVs was tepid globally. It was deemed too gimmicky, with rudimentary features that didn't suit how consumers interacted with the TV. And the demand was relatively small compared to today.
    "There was a demand from consumers to have internet or internet-streaming services on the TV," Han said. "People knew they wanted water. But the question is whether they want their water hot or cold, or in a bottle or a cup? So what [we found] is important is 'how'?"
    So the experiment continued. Moving from basically putting smartphone features into TVs, the company made new services with TV hardware specifically in mind. It added Family Story, a photo app for sharing among family members. In 2012, it added cameras that allowed users to see their fitness moves on screen (since removed due to privacy issues). In 2013, Samsung launched HiTV, which allowed simple conversations with the TV -- "ahead of its time," Han said with a chuckle. These services didn't last long, however.
    "What we realized is that consumers didn't really want something new, really," said Han. "And we realized that TV was a medium that you watched, not a medium you use. Like the phone, more passive than active. It seems obvious in hindsight, but there was demand for, say, 'we wish there was calendar' or this or that. We only realized that it didn't work after we applied it.
    "Our core lessons were, first, not to forget the main function of the TV -- something that is watched. [Consumers] want media content, more than anything else. And second, you couldn't change the way consumers watch TV, which is more or less on the sofa, leaned back. Many found the features hard to use. And you can't call it smart TV when you are asking consumers to become smarter. You had to allow them to stay the way they are and facilitate their use and their demands. We wanted effortless engagement," she said.

    kfione-remote-control.jpgSamsung has improved UI for content viewing and simplified control for consumers, such as with the One Remote control. Image: Samsung

    At the same time though, the demand for internet services continued to rise. According to Samsung's surveys, in 2012, demand for internet services was ranked 10th out of all consumer demands. In 2014, it jumped to sixth and in 2016 it reached fourth. In 2017, the demand for internet services, primarily internet-streaming, is ranked between second or third. "The goal was to give consumers what they want. We cannot turn back from smart TVs now."
    Content hub
    After the experiments of 2012 and 2013, Samsung pressed the reset button in 2014. After conducting research, the company found consumers judged a TV as smart based on the whole experience -- from when it is turned on to when it is turned off -- rather than individual services. So the focus was now on user experience, from start to finish. Services, meanwhile, were focused on media content. Simply put, the goal was -- and still is -- to become an easy-to-use content hub.
    The company applied Tizen to all its TVs that year in preparation, and in the following year launched the One Remote and Smart Hub -- as well as a simplified UI that aggregates all content into an easy-to-view menu with previews. The goal was to make the smart TV experience smarter without taxing the consumer. Voice commands and smartphone control were also added to help consumers reach media content faster. Today, users can control their TVs via the Galaxy S8 or newly-launched Galaxy Note 8 through the Smart Hub app.
    Previews are now decided by the content partners themselves, such as Netflix and Amazon. "So instead of making new services, we invited content vendors to use our smart TVs as their hub to deploy their content. We don't want to force our services on the consumer anymore," said the VP. "This kind of collaboration was unimaginable when we started. Apple's set-top box is available too now."
    "Smart TV is an eco; what I mean is that it can only be done through collaboration and communication with departments," said Han. "Inside the company, the hardware, software, UX, UI, and service team, and other businesses besides VD [are] working together. Starting in 2014, we have extended this cooperation with our outside partners. Our fundamental attitude changed. And [since] 2016, the reception for our smart TVs has been very warm."
    Samsung launched the TV Plus this year, which aggregates 4K and HDR content. "We have UHD resolution, and we have committed our partners on 4K (UHD) and HDR. We want to keep that promise and become their hub as well," Han added.
    OTT content partners, film studios and gaming firms are reevaluating the TV as a content hub, said Han. "Facebook now has a TV app exclusively for us. This was unimaginable only a few years back. Content makers are seeing the value of the new smart TV and how it can help them reach a wider consumer base."
    Internet of Screens: From picture frames to trucks
    11 years as the top vendor drastically changed internal processes. As well as picture quality and smart convergence, design and form factor became more and more important.
    "When we were the fast follower, it was easier," said Park of the Product Strategy team. "We saw everything logically. All we needed to worry about was the step-by-step evolution of picture quality. Now everything starts with imagination.
    "What we do in Product Strategy is basically come up with a concept from scratch. We try to look beyond the conventions of TV. We look at new values that the TV can create in the consumers' lives. Therefore, we look at their lifestyle and we think a lot about design and form factor that will ultimately become a part of their lifestyle. It's not just about picture quality anymore. It's about the form and what the TV can do."

    The South Korean tech giant's technological sophistication wasn't always taken for granted. The firm's Bordeaux TV, its 2006 hit that helped it surpass Sony, was more known for its crystal wine glass-inspired frame design. The design focus that started then has now moved on to form factor.
    The first major tweak in form came with the Curved TV, featuring a curved screen for the first time in a flagship product. This year, the company launched the Frame TV, a picture frame-shaped TV that can be put on a stand or mounted on a wall.
    "It's not just the form factor," said Han. "Our Frame TV has a picture store, where users can decorate their houses by using it as an art gallery, which is possible from our crisp picture quality and smart features."
    The VD unit kicked off its B2B display business unit in 2015, and is now deploying QLED signage, such as screens that are used as mirrors in barbers. Samsung has also put screens at the back of trucks for the Safety Truck concept, allowing cars behind to see the view ahead. Huge LED screens are being installed on stadiums and movie theaters, while the flexible screen has been applied to prototypes, although yield rate is preventing commercialization.
    "These projects are not about profit. It is about leadership. We have to imagine things, apply them, and see if they work."
    "Samsung has been the leader of the TV industry for 11 consecutive years," added Park. "Part of it stems from our continued effort to discover new usage cases. Technology and innovation are very important. These projects are not gimmicks. They are our experiments. Many experiments fail. That is not the point. The point is that we continue to try and find what the consumers want."
    So what is a TV?

    q9flifestyle-05.jpgSamsung believes boundaries between devices are blurring and that the TV will be integrated into our lives in ways previously unimaginable. Image: Samsung

    It can be argued that, besides picture quality, the fundamental function of the TV has never changed from its inception up until the 1990s. From JFK's address during the Cuban Missile Crisis to OJ Simpson's trial, the TV was the king of the home -- where families gathered to learn the latest goings-on in the world.
    Today, however, people have their smartphone for content consumption. Samsung seems to be moving away from the TV-centric Internet of Things strategy to one more balanced between devices, with TVs, home appliances, and smartphones considered equally. To illustrate this, the conglomerate announced it will apply more AI and voice recognition features to home appliances, seemingly to compartmentalize "command points" in the home. So where is the TV headed in the next five years?
    "The TV today is not the TV of old. In the CRT age, people watched three to four hours of it, and it was off," said Han. "Do consumers really buy one TV today? TV comes in so many different sizes now, from 20 inches to 70 inches. Do people enjoy the same family time of old? Are the houses we live in the same? Do people use TVs the way did before? These are all questions to consider when you look at the fast-changing market.
    "What we think about is the role of the TV in those remaining 20 hours, besides the four-hour average when it is being watched. We imagine it to be a screen that gives new functions. It won't just be in the living room. It will be in places we haven't thought of ... as windows, picture frames, and music players. And outside the home.
    "In five years, we think TVs won't be called TVs. They will be a smart device. Don't get me wrong, there will always be demand for the best picture viewed on a large screen. That interest won't fade. But today, near 60 percent of all TVs are smart TVs. Monitors and tablets do what TVs do. There is a convergence unlike anything we've seen before," she said.
    "The point is that any service, technology, or platform we have will in the end serve our greater purpose of giving consumers a better experience."
    She declined to comment on whether Bixby was coming to TVs next year. However, Injong Rhee, Samsung mobile CTO, has said that the firm's Bixby AI platform will be coming to devices outside of smartphones. Samsung Mobile boss DJ Koh said the firm will introduce a Bixby service that connects the Note 8 with TVs in China, though he didn't provide details.
    The way departments communicate has also changed, Han added, both pro-actively and in reaction to changes. Frame TVs, for instance, sport a sensor made by the semiconductor business.
    "Inter-business communication has improved remarkably. We are following consumer demand for convergence," Han said. "The VD unit no longer thinks in terms of 'we have to sell TVs', but more in terms of 'how this helps the combined experience of the consumer'."

    2017073114020934d4tew9b.gifSamsung's SCM protects its bottom line.

    Samsung is near obsessive about consumer feedback. In the first half of this year, VD conducted over 80 consumer survey projects in North America, Europe, the Middle East, CIS nations, Southeast Asia, South Korea, China, and India. These surveyed consumer living and viewing environments, spatial roles, and how people watch TV depending on where they are in the house. The firm also does a lot of focus group interviews and home visits.
    "We try to find unmet consumer needs and pain-points, and these are our concept seeds that we develop into a prototype. These prototypes are lent to consumers for us to review and make assessments of what makes the most sense in their lives."
    Then there is the conglomerate's long experience in supply chain management (SCM). Samsung's system for managing inventory makes it well-known in South Korea as a "well-oiled machine". It has a strict protocol for checking healthiness of remaining stocks, and TVs are delivered by a total of 13 transportation methods.
    "Consumer behavior is changing rapidly, so I can't say our TVs will always be a content hub. Those trial services in the early days of smart TV might come back, but in an evolved way that reflects the changes," said president Kim.
    "We have been leading the TV industry for 11 years and will continue to be at the forefront of bringing about meaningful changes."
    "For 2018, one of our keywords will be personalization," Han added. "We are also planning a big announcement, which will be a result of collaboration among the businesses. TV is no longer king. A paradigm shift is imminent, and there will be an important role that the TV plays."

     Cache   

    Das Bundesministerium für Digitalisierung und Wirtschaftsstandort (BMDW) hat gemeinsam mit der Austria Wirtschaftsservice GmbH (aws) die dritte Ausschreibungsrunde des Programms JumpStart erfolgreich abgeschlossen. Aus 24 eingereichten Projekten hat eine unabhängige Expertenjury die besten Konzepte ausgewählt, die nun als Inkubatoren mit jeweils bis zu 150.000 Euro unterstützt werden. Diese sind: Female Founders, Lemmings und The Ventury aus Wien, Climate KIC aus Niederösterreich und I.E.C.T. aus Tirol. Schwerpunkt des Programms liegt dabei auf der Unterstützung und Weiterentwicklung heimischer Inkubatoren und Akzeleratoren, die innovativen Start-ups nicht nur Büro-, Labor-, oder Produktionsflächen, sondern insbesondere maßgeschneiderte Beratungsleistungen zur Verfügung stellen.

    „Unsere innovativen Start-ups brauchen die besten Rahmenbedingungen. Mit dem JumpStart-Programm leisten wir einen wichtigen Beitrag, um aus Ideen erfolgreiche Geschäftsmodelle zu machen. Besonders positiv ist, dass wir in dieser Runde mit der Unterstützung von Female Founders auch gezielt Frauen in Start-ups unterstützen können. Wir brauchen mehr Gründerinnen und dafür braucht es neben Mut und Eigeninitiative auch entsprechende Rahmenbedingungen“, sagt Wirtschaftsministerin Margarete Schramböck.

    Projekte aus ganz Österreich

    Im Rahmen der dritten Ausschreibungsrunde wurden 24 Anträge aus ganz Österreich eingereicht. Neben bekannten und in der Szene fest verankerten Akteuren konnten in dieser Runde auch viele junge Initiativen angesprochen werden. Die Bandbreite der Bewerber und der ausgewählten Projekte reichte dabei von „Stand-alone“- über Corporate-Inkubatoren und Technologiezentren bis hin zu akademischen Akzeleratoren und verteilt sich über alle Start-up-relevanten Branchen, wie Life Sciences, IT, Web/Mobile, Dienstleistungen und Hardware.

    „Um ihre Ideen umzusetzen, brauchen Start-ups neben finanziellen Ressourcen eine Arbeitsumgebung, in der sie sich ganz auf ihre Projekte konzentrieren und gleichzeitig von der Vernetzung und vom lebendigen Erfahrungsaustausch mit anderen Start-ups profitieren können. Mit aws JumpStart unterstützen wir die besten Inkubatoren und schaffen damit die notwendigen Rahmenbedingungen“, sagt die aws Geschäftsführung, Edeltraud Stiftinger und Bernhard Sagmeister.

    In einem ersten Schritt wurden in der Förderungsschiene nun geeignete Inkubatoren und Akzeleratoren ausgewählt und unterstützt. Damit wird für Unternehmungen ein produktiver und unbürokratischer Rahmen geschaffen, in dem sie sich entwickeln können. Zudem brauchen besonders innovative Start-ups auch selbst Finanzierung. In einem zweiten Modul des Förderungsprogramms werden daher vielversprechende Start-ups auch direkt unterstützt. Bis zu fünf der Unternehmen, die sich in einem JumpStart Inkubator/ Akzelerator befinden, werden dazu ausgewählt. Pro Start-up ist eine Förderung von 22.500 Euro vorgesehen.

    Bridging the Week by Gary DeWaal: October 21 to November 1, and November 4, 2019, (CFTC Settlement Undone; Aiding and Abetting Liability Potentially Broader; Spoofing = Wire Fraud)

     Cache   

    Two weeks ago, a federal court of appeals sided with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission ruling that a district court could not require the testimony of three commissioners and various staff to assess whether the agency committed civil contempt in connection with its handling of an enforcement settlement with two food giants. In response, the district court confirmed it would solely evaluate the existing record to determine whether to grant the defendants’ motion for a contempt finding against the Commission and sanctions; however, it also set aside the settlement consent order and instructed the parties to propose a trial date – although they could also propose new resolution terms. Last week, a law firm filed its own lawsuit against the CFTC for the agency’s non-provision of documents related to the settlement in response to a request under the Freedom of Information Act. Unrelatedly, the House Committee on Agriculture proposed to reauthorize the CFTC for another five years and to expand the reach of potential aiding and abetting liability to reckless acts in addition to purposeful acts. As a result, the following matters are covered in this week’s edition of Bridging the Week:

    • District Court Judge Calls for Do Over in Settlement of CFTC Enforcement Action Against Food Giants After Court of Appeals Mostly Grants Commission’s Mandamus Request (includes Legal Weeds);
    • House Ag Committee Proposes CFTC Reauthorization That Includes Aiding and Abetting Expansion (includes My View);
    • Spoofing Can Violate Wire Fraud Statute Rules Federal Judge (includes Policy and Politics); and more.

    Article Version:  

    Briefly:

    • District Court Judge Calls for Do Over in Settlement of CFTC Enforcement Action Against Food Giants After Court of Appeals Mostly Grants Commission’s Mandamus Request: On October 23, the federal court judge in Chicago presiding over the 2015 enforcement action by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission against Kraft Foods Group, Inc. and Mondelez Global, LLC set aside the settlement agreement among the parties confirmed in an August 14, 2019 consent order. The CFTC originally charged the defendants with manipulating and attempting to manipulate December 2011 wheat futures contracts and cash wheat.

    The Hon. John Blakey revoked the settlement order following a decision by a federal court of appeals to grant, in part, relief requested by the CFTC in a mandamus petition precluding him from requiring the Chairman of the CFTC, two commissioners, and various employees of the Commission to provide testimony in a contempt proceeding against the CFTC and the individuals. Previously, the defendants requested that the CFTC and the individuals be held in contempt because they claimed the CFTC and the individuals had violated terms of a mutual gag agreement contained in the consent order when the Commission and two commissioners issued statements contemporaneously with publication of the order. The defendants also sought sanctions against the CFTC.

    Under the agreement, defendants agreed to remit a fine of US $16 million and not to violate various provisions of law relating to manipulation, wash sales, and speculative limits. The consent order made clear, however, that nothing in the order reflected an agreement or determination that the defendants violated any provision of applicable law. (Click here for details regarding this dispute in the article “Contempt and Sanctions Hearing Against the CFTC Arising From Manipulation Complaint Settlement Delayed to October 2” in the September 2, 2019 edition of Between Bridges.)

    The US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit held that only the CFTC could potentially be held in contempt for violating the gag order and not any individuals, and that the determination of whether the CFTC was in contempt should be made by Judge Blakey solely on the basis of the existing record without any consideration of collateral evidence, including the testimony of any CFTC commissioners or employees.

    In response, Judge Blakey issued a docket entry noting that he would resolve defendants’ motion for contempt, sanctions and other relief relying solely on the existing record. He also set aside the consent order on the grounds that the “factual record” does not support a proposition that the parties agreed to settle their dispute with an understanding that the settlement terms were binding on the Commission but not on agents of the Commission, including commissioners and staff. Additionally, Judge Blakey requested that the CFTC and defendants renew their motions for summary judgment and propose a trial date during a hearing on November 20. Judge Blakey indicated that the parties may still try to settle this matter, however.

    Separately, the New York-based law firm of Kobre & Kim sued the CFTC in a federal court in NY, claiming that the Commission failed to produce documents related to the CFTC-Kraft/Mondelez settlement that it requested under the Freedom of Information Act. The law firm claims that it requested the documents because the original settlement failed to contain any findings of fact or conclusions of law, and thus the CFTC has left “the public in the dark” regarding its current theory of manipulation. According to the law firm, “[i]n effect, the CFTC negotiated a private resolution that left the industry without any intelligible guidance and with a potential misimpression that the legal theories asserted against [Kraft/Mondelez] had a sound legal basis.” (Click here to access a copy of Kobre & Kim’s Complaint.)

    Legal Weeds: In its petition for mandamus, the CFTC also requested that the civil contempt proceeding against it be ended. However, the Court of Appeals rejected this request, claiming that if a decision ultimately is rendered adverse to the CFTC, the Commission can appeal that outcome in the ordinary course. The Court of Appeals also declined to transfer the contempt proceeding to a different judge as asked by the CFTC, saying that Judge Blakey was in the “best position to decide as an initial matter” if a contempt determination was warranted.

    Following the Court of Appeals’ decision, Judge Blakey indicated that not only would he be considering the CFTC’s possible violation of the consent order, but also possible violations of the court’s prior orders, “including this Court’s orders making the settlement conference discussions private in conformity with traditional trial court practice.”

    Judge Blakey previously had suggested that the Commission as well as individual commissioners and staff might be subject to criminal contempt determinations. However he withdrew this threat on September 19. (Click here to access the relevant docket entry at 336.)

    Judge Blakey’s pronouncement on the wide scope of his contempt determination coupled with Kobre & Kim’s FOIA lawsuit against the CFTC on Halloween serve to underscore how the Commission’s initial handling of its settlement with Kraft and Mondelez will continue to haunt the agency for some time.

    • House Ag Committee Proposes CFTC Reauthorization That Includes Aiding and Abetting Expansion: The House of Representatives' Agriculture Committee proposed a bill to reauthorize the Commodity Futures Trading Commission through fiscal year 2025 that includes a material expansion of potential aiding and abetting liability. Currently, under relevant law, any persons who willfully aids and abets a violation of law can be held liable for such violation as a principal (Click here to access 7 U.S.C. § 13c(a)). As proposed by the Agriculture Committee, any person who recklessly provides substantial assistance to such a violation could also be liable as a principal. 

    Additionally, the proposed reauthorization bill would (1) amend core principles for contract markets and swap execution facilities to require the CFTC to adopt rules detailing trader data and other information such trading venues must be able to access from cash markets and other data sources related to contracts referencing digital commodities and (2) expand the reach of the CFTC’s enforcement authority outside the United States to circumstances where certain prohibited activities (e.g., fraud and manipulation) “have or would have a reasonably foreseeable substantial effect within the United States.” 

    As proposed, the CFTC would also be required to adopt policies to safeguard proprietary information it receives whether through investigations or otherwise proportionate to the “level of sensibility of the information” and limit access to the information to “appropriate” Commission staff.

    My View: In light of the CFTC’s relentless prosecution of Jitesh Thakkar for developing software used by Flash Crash Spoofer Navinder Sarao despite the dropping of parallel criminal charges by the Department of Justice, the proposed expansion of potential aiding and abetting liability for non-registrants is a significant red flag. Potentially holding programmers of futures trading, advisory or surveillance systems liable for the non-intentional development of software that might be used for illicit purposes could have a material chilling effect on software development for legitimate purposes and inhibit US leadership in creating new fintech innovations for the derivatives industry. (Click here for background regarding the CFTC’s pursuit of Mr. Thakkar in the article “Department of Justice Declines to Retry Alleged Programmer for Flash Crash Spoofer” in the April 28, 2019, edition of Bridging the Week.)

    • Spoofing Can Violate Wire Fraud Statute Rules Federal Judge: A federal district court in Chicago declined to dismiss criminal charges alleging violations of wire fraud prohibitions against James Vorley and Cedric Chanu related to alleged spoofing trading activities on the Commodity Exchange, Inc. from at least December 2009 through November 2011. Both individuals were formerly associated with Deutsche Bank and were named in a criminal complaint filed in July 2018. (Click here for background in the article “Alleged Spoofer Exonerated in Criminal Trial Agrees in Principle to CFTC Settlement; Two More Purported Spoofers Criminally Charged” in the August 5, 2018 edition of Bridging the Week.) The defendants were charged both with wire fraud (Click here to access 18 U.S.C. §1343) and with conspiracy to commit wire fraud (click here to access 18 U.S.C. §1349).

    ​The defendants had argued that they could not be convicted of wire fraud because a violation under the relevant statute requires the making of affirmative misrepresentations and spoofing trading does not entail false statements. According to defendants, their orders – even if spoofing orders – entailed no representations beyond their stated terms and solely communicated an implied commitment that if their orders were accepted before cancelled, they would be filled according to their terms.

    The Hon. John Tharp, Jr., the presiding judge in this matter, disagreed with defendants’ arguments. He wrote that omitting or concealing material information, even absent a duty to disclose, constitutes a violation of wire fraud prohibitions “if the omission was intended to induce a false belief and action to the advantage of the schemer and the disadvantage of the victim.” Judge Tharp claimed that when orders are placed with an intent to cancel them before execution in connection with spoofing, the intent is to create a “false belief about the supply or demand for a commodity” so that a market moves in a direction to execute resting orders of the spoofer on one side of the market to the detriment of other traders on the other side of the market who are not knowledgeable of the spoofer’s trading intent.

    The court also rejected defendants’ argument that the wire fraud statute is unconstitutionally vague. Judge Tharp wrote that spoofing is similar to pump and dump schemes that have frequently been prosecuted under wire fraud prohibitions.

    The Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that contained an express spoofing prohibition was not signed into law until July 21, 2010, and the anti-spoofing provision was not effective until July 16, 2011. Thus, the DOJ could not prosecute defendants utilizing the prohibition for the overwhelming majority of their purportedly illicit spoofing transactions. (Click here for background regarding the effective date of the anti-spoofing prohibition and other provisions of Dodd-Frank.)

    Policy and Politics: In February 2019, the Futures Industry Association filed a friend of the court brief in this matter arguing that prosecuting defendants for wire fraud (and not spoofing) raised issues of concern to the business community because such action implied that orders entered without an intent of execution for any reason constituted fraudulent statements to the marketplace. However, observed FIA, such a view would challenge “the vitality of the established legal precept” that market participants have no obligation to disclose any information in connection with open orders including their intentions regarding such orders. According to FIA, criminalization of “a market participant’s failure to disclose trading intentions opens the door for arbitrary prosecutions and vexatious private claims.” (Click here to access a copy of the FIA filing.) The US Chamber of Commerce, the Bank Policy Institute and the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association made similar arguments in a friend of the court brief they also filed in this matter.

    More Briefly:

    • CFTC Chair Says Position Limits Proposal Coming Soon; Head of DSIO Says Thematic Reviews Coming Soon Too: In a kick-off speech before FIA Expo in Chicago last week, Heath Tarbert, Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, said the Commission will propose new position limits rules within the next few months. He also said that, among his other objectives, were issuance of a framework for principles-based regulation generally, principles guidance for digital assets, enforcement penalty guidance, and a cross-border rule for swap dealers. Although he associated no specific time frames with his other objectives, Dr. Tarbert quoted Thomas Edison in saying that “vision without execution is hallucination.”

    Separately, Joshua Sterling, Director of the CFTC’s Division of Swap Dealer and Intermediary Oversight, indicated that his Division staff would soon commence targeted thematic reviews of swap dealers and commodity pool operators. In a speech before the Alternative Investment Management Association, Mr. Sterling said the purpose of the review would be “both to mitigate the potential for blind spots in our oversight and enhance our engagement with registrants.” According to Mr. Sterling, firms subject to reviews are those likely “to have a significant impact” on derivatives markets and each review would be completed onsite within five business days. The objective of the reviews is not to refer matters to the Division of Enforcement, he said, but to provide general guidance to the industry and determine potential rulemakings.

    • US and Non-US Companies Charged by CFTC for Acting as Unregistered FCMs: XBT Corp. SARL d/b/a First Global Credit (FGC) settled charges brought both by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commission that if offered and sold investment products to US person in return for payments in bitcoin in violation of certain legal provisions. According to both regulators, FGC is a Switzerland-based company that maintains a website and platform to solicit customers to trade futures and securities products.

    The CFTC alleged that, from March 2016 through July 2017, FGC solicited and allowed US persons to trade futures on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s Globex platform without being registered as a futures commission merchant. The SEC charged that from 2014 through 2019, the firm offered and sold instruments based on US and internationally listed stocks to US persons that did not meet certain minimum financial standards by qualifying as “eligible contract participants” under applicable law (Click here to access a definition of an ECP at 7 U.S.C. §1a(18)). However, as these instruments constituted security-based swaps, they could only be sold to nonqualified US persons if the instruments were subject to an effective registration statement and were traded on a national securities exchange. FGC met neither of these requirements, alleged the SEC.

    FGC settled with the CFTC and SEC by agreeing to pay each a US $100,000 fine. FGC additionally agreed to remit to the SEC US $32,952 as disgorgement and interest.

    Unrelatedly, Upstream Energy Services LLC, a Texas-based crude oil and natural gas advisory firm, was also charged by the CFTC with operating as an FCM without registration. The CFTC claimed that between April 2017 and September 2018, the firm accepted orders for futures and options on behalf of two clients owned by the same person, and entered the orders and carried the resulting trades in its own trading accounts. Upstream extended credit to the clients for margin but was subsequently reimbursed by the clients for Upstream’s costs; Upstream also received fees from the clients for its trading services. Upstream agreed to pay the CFTC a US $75,000 fine to resolve its purported violation.

    • No Action Granted by SEC to NY Digital Trust Company to Settle Equities Transactions Without Clearing Agency Registration: Staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission granted Paxos Trust Company, LLC no action relief to act as a clearing agency for two years without registering as a clearing agency in connection with a private and permissioned distributed ledger system designed to facilitate simultaneous delivery vs. payment securities settlements. As a condition of its no action relief, Paxos will provide its offering to no more than seven participants; limit its services to a de minimus amount of activity; and solely settle equities that meet certain criteria. Paxos’s proposed settlement system will piggyback on existing structures by creating and utilizing digital representations of cash wired by broker-dealer participants to a Paxos bank account and digital representations of securities transferred by the same broker-dealers from their The Depository Trust Company accounts to a Paxos DTC account. According to a press release issued by Paxos, Credit Suisse and Société Générale will be among the first participants to use Paxos’s settlement services (Click here to access Paxos’s press release).

    In other legal and regulatory developments involving Fintech:

    • DOJ Relies on Bitcoin Block Chain Analysis for Indictment of Leader and Users of Darknet Child Pornography Website: The Department of Justice quarterbacked the indictment of the founder of a darknet child pornography website – Welcome to Video ("WTV") – by a grand jury in the District of Columbia, and the arrest and charging of 337 site users nationwide and abroad. According to the DOJ, by tracing transactions on the bitcoin blockchain, it was able to identify the site’s alleged leader – Jong Woo Son — and the location of the site’s server’s physical location in South Korea. With analytic help from a private company, Chainalysis, DOJ was also able to identify the exchanges on which bitcoin was initially purchased for use on WTV, thus allowing the DOJ to identify potential users by relying on the exchanges’ know-your-customer information. (Click here to access background by Chainalysis.)

    • CFTC Chair Stresses Need for Principles-Based Regulation to Accommodate Fintech and Announces Elevation of LabCFTC to Operating Office: Heath Tarbert, Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s, indicated that innovation in the derivatives industry can best be encouraged by providing a “principles-approach to regulation.” Contemporaneously, during a presentation at the beginning at the CFTC’s Fintech Forward 2019 conference on October 24, Dr. Tarbert announced the elevation of LabCFTC to an independent operating office within the Commission (as opposed to a part of the Office of General Counsel) and the CFTC’s new membership in the Global Financial Innovation Network. GFIN is an organization of global regulators that encourages cooperation in the development, execution and distribution of new technologies. In connection with the Fintech Forward conference, LabCFTC also issued a primer on Artificial Intelligence (click here to access). The Securities and Exchange Commission, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation  and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency also announced they joined GFIN last week (click here for background).

    • OCC Loses Effort to Have Scope of DFS Judgment Limiting National Fintech Charters Narrowed: A federal court in New York City granted the New York Department of Financial Services’ request for an order precluding the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency from approving fintech applicants who do not accept deposits for national bank charters. Both parties had agreed to the general framework of a proposed order mandating such outcome, but OCC had sought to limit its application solely to fintech applicants that had a nexus to New York State. Previously, the same court had ruled that NYS had standing to bring its legal action. (Click here for background in the article “Federal Court Opens Spigot Permitting NY DFS Lawsuit to Proceed Against Federal Bank Regulator for Planning to Issue Fintech Charters” in the May 5, 2019 edition of Bridging the Week.) In September 2019, a federal court in the District of Columbia ruled that the Conference of State Bank Supervisors had no standing to bring an analogous action against OCC, writing that the organizations' claims were unripe as, to date, no fintech company has applied for a relevant charter. (Click here for a copy of the relevant court decision.)

    • Purported Faulty Block Trade Reporting, Prearranged Trading to Obtain Exchange Incentive Fees and Failure to Supervise Result in NYMEX Disciplinary Action Settlements: McNamara Options Ltd. agreed to pay a fine of US $70,000 to resolve charges brought by the New York Mercantile Exchange that it failed to accurately reflect execution times on multiple block trade submissions and failed to report such block trades within required time frames. NYMEX also alleged that the firm did not “properly” train its employees regarding its requirements to accurately reflect the execution time of block trades on submissions. 

    Unrelatedly, Ze Qian, a nonmember, resolved an unrelated disciplinary action by NYMEX that claimed he prearranged the execution of transactions involving steel futures between an account he traded for his employer and an account owned and controlled by another person to enable Mr. Qian’s employer to receive trade credits from a market-maker incentive program administered by the exchange. To resolve this matter, Mr. Qian agreed to pay a fine of US $5,000 and serve a two-year all CME Group exchanges’ access ban. 

    Additionally, three nonmembers were all fined either US $40,ooo or US $50,000 by the Commodity Exchange, Inc. or NYMEX and permanently barred from accessing CME Group exchanges for trading for engaging in spoofing trading. The three persons are Shiv Agarwal, Krishna Lakani and In-Ho Hwang. Finally, Boston Metal Co., Ltd was also sanctioned US $40,000 for failing to supervise one of its employees who allegedly engaged in spoofing trading and for not ensuring that each of its traders used a unique Tag 50 identification when placing electronic orders.

    • Two Affiliated Broker-Dealers Agree to US $15 Million Sanction for Purported AML Program and Supervisory Deficiencies: BNP Paribas Securities Corp. and BNP Paribas Prime Brokerage, Inc. agreed collectively to pay a fine of US $15 million to resolve allegations by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority that, from February 25, 2013 through March 31, 2017, they failed to maintain and administer an adequate anti-money laundering program. Among other matters, FINRA claimed that until 2016, the firms did not conduct surveillance of penny stock transactions or transactions outside of traditional exchanges despite the heightened risks of such transactions including fraud, money laundering and lack of registration of such stocks with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The firms reviewed wire transfers involving US dollars, acknowledged FINRA, but purportedly failed to monitor wires involving foreign currencies or any wires to assess whether they involved high-risk jurisdictions or entities. FINRA claimed that during the relevant time, some employees of the firms escalated concerns regarding the adequacy of their AML program to senior management; however, said FINRA the firms “did not act in a timely manner to address the deficiencies its personnel identified.” FINRA indicated it considered the firms’ remediation efforts which commenced during its review in computing the amount of the firms’ fine.

    • Trader Accused by SEC of Making Misstatements Regarding Bond Pricing Asks for Summary Judgement Claiming Practices Were Industry Norm: James Im, who was sued by the Securities and Exchange Commission in 2017 for purportedly engaging in fraud by misrepresenting information related to commercial mortgage-backed securities he sold to customers, supported a motion for summary judgment in his favor by arguing that while his statements may have been misleading, they were not materially misleading and, in any case, none of his customers relied on them. This is because, claimed Mr. Im, none of Mr. Im’s customers would have considered his statements in assessing the value of the bonds he sold or whether to purchase them as they engaged with him solely on a principal to principal basis and he never acted on their behalf as an agent. Moreover, said Mr. Im, at no time did he act with scienter or recklessly because his misstatements were solely “negotiating positions [and] nothing more”, and “market participants understood that such misstatements were not uncommon.” Mr. Im was previously co-head of the CMBS desk at Nomura Securities International, Inc. (Click here for a copy of the SEC’s original complaint against Mr. Im.)

    Modeling Research Topics for Artificial Intelligence Applications in Medicine: Latent Dirichlet Allocation Application Study

     Cache   
    Background: Artificial intelligence (AI)–based technologies develop rapidly and have myriad applications in medicine and health care. However, there is a lack of comprehensive reporting on the productivity, workflow, topics, and research landscape of AI in this field. Objective: This study aimed to evaluate the global development of scientific publications and constructed interdisciplinary research topics on the theory and practice of AI in medicine from 1977 to 2018. Methods: We obtained bibliographic data and abstract contents of publications published between 1977 and 2018 from the Web of Science database. A total of 27,451 eligible articles were analyzed. Research topics were classified by latent Dirichlet allocation, and principal component analysis was used to identify the construct of the research landscape. Results: The applications of AI have mainly impacted clinical settings (enhanced prognosis and diagnosis, robot-assisted surgery, and rehabilitation), data science and precision medicine (collecting individual data for precision medicine), and policy making (raising ethical and legal issues, especially regarding privacy and confidentiality of data). However, AI applications have not been commonly used in resource-poor settings due to the limit in infrastructure and human resources. Conclusions: The application of AI in medicine has grown rapidly and focuses on three leading platforms: clinical practices, clinical material, and policies. AI might be one of the methods to narrow down the inequality in health care and medicine between developing and developed countries. Technology transfer and support from developed countries are essential measures for the advancement of AI application in health care in developing countries.

    K 2019: It’s a wrap

     Cache   
    K 2019

    It’s official and, to be honest, quite predictable: K 2019 was an unqualified success. The plastics and rubber trade show in Düsseldorf, Germany, from Oct. 16 to 23 attracted approximately 225,000 visitors from 165 countries, according to Messe Düsseldorf. They ogled stunning displays from the likes of Sabic—featured as one of PlasticsToday’s coolest things at the show—and Reifenhäuser—check out the video below—and kicked some tires as they pondered purchasing new plastics processing equipment. Visitors had an embarrassment of riches from which to choose: Organizers said that 3,330 exhibitors from 63 countries took part in this year’s event.

    Members of the press were keenly interested in learning about new technologies, and the K, as always, did not disappoint. Stephen Moore and I combed the aisles and attended what seemed like wall-to-wall press conferences hunting down news for PlasticsToday readers. Articles that we posted leading up to, during and after the show are archived at www.plasticstoday.com/k-show. You will find some interesting reading there, including reports on how blockchain can be be applied to plastics traceability and sustainability, why Lanxess is using artificial intelligence to accelerate materials development, and the shape of cars to come. But wait, there’s more.

    Following the K, I took a one-week vacation in Paris. With apologies to Charles Aznavour, it was “for me, for me, formidable.” Thanks for asking. On the downside, though, I wasn’t able to report on some innovations I discovered the second week of the show and share conversations I had with exhibitors . . . until now. Turn the page.

    ExxonMobil puts flexible packaging on path to circular economy

    Sustainability was the buzz word at K 2019, as we noted it would be ahead of the show. ExxonMobil (Irving, TX) was rigorously on message with a number of innovations and projects designed to advance the circular economy.

    The chemicals giant announced at the event a collaboration with plastics extrusion company Reifenhäuser to produce new heavy duty sacks partly using recycled polyethylene from former sacks without sacrificing performance, even when fourth-cycle recycled PE is used. It also introduced Rethink Recycle technology with Vistamaxx performance polymers that enables increased use of recycled content in high-value applications. A key environmental benefit is that addition of Vistamaxx acts like a “compatibilizer” between PE and PP—the incompatible plastics mix in the melt, reducing the need for separation of the materials in preparation for recycling. The technology is being used in Patagonia to convert discarded plastic fishing ropes into high-quality end products. Closer to home, ExxonMobil also has collaborated with three partners to produce stand-up pouches (SUPs) made partly from recycled material from full-PE-laminated SUPs. The packaging is fully recyclable at the end of its life cycle.

    Peter Paul de Moor (left) and Adeline Duponchel of ExxonMobil show samples of a full-PE-laminated stand-up pouch and its cousin made partly with recycled content.

    Flexible packaging typically requires different material layers to meet a range of property requirements, including stiffness, toughness and sealing and optical properties. Multi-material packaging, however, is difficult to recycle. ExxonMobil’s solution is an SUP made from a combination of 30% recycled material from a full-PE-laminated SUP and 70% virgin PE. The technology came about through a collaboration with Erema, Henkel and Hosokawa Alpine.

    “We are committed to doing more with less at ExxonMobil,” Adeline Duponchel, Market Development Manager for PE in Europe, Middle East and Africa, told PlasticsToday. Recycled full-PE-laminated packaging furthers that commitment by using recycled PE from existing packaging in combination with performance PE polymers to manufacture new SUPs, she noted. The properties of the packaging with recycled content are not 100% identical to those using only virgin resin, conceded Duponchel, but they are more than good enough in terms of stiffness, toughness and shelf appeal. And they are recyclable, moving industry closer to the goal of circularity of flexible packaging.

    Nova Chemicals' wants to 'STOP' waste plastics from ending up in marine environments

    Sustainability was also a key feature at the Nova Chemicals (Calgary, AB) stand, which it shared with Borealis and Borouge. All three companies have a shared ownership but operate independent of each other, although they are pooling their resources and expertise in Project STOP.

    “The initiative was co-founded in 2017 by Borealis and SystemIQ to bring circular economy solutions to cities in Southeast Asia with poor or mismanaged waste infrastructure programs,” Sarah Marshall, Director of Sustainability at Nova Chemicals, told PlasticsToday. The goal is to prevent plastic waste from ending up in marine environments by “engaging with communities and developing stable, long-term solutions to waste management,” she added.

    Project STOP aims to bring circular economy solutions to cities in Southeast Asia with poor or mismanaged waste infrastructure programs, explained Sarah Marshall, Director of Sustainability at Nova Chemicals.

    The program has now expanded to three cities and has welcomed the Alliance to End Plastic Waste as a strategic partner. The three-year partnership will focus on the regency of Jembrana on the northwest coast of Bali and study the feasibility of achieving a future free of unmanaged plastic waste throughout the island. Nova Chemicals is a founding member of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste, added Marshall.

    Remote healthcare, powered by 5G and Sabic

    Sabic (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) sees the adoption of 5G wireless technology as critical to enabling many new application areas, notably in remote healthcare, and it sees opportunities for its materials in this fast new world.

    Lower latency will provide an almost instantaneous transmission of high volumes of data between devices, noted Sabic in its press release, enabling surgeons to remotely conduct procedures as if they were physically next to the patient. This evolution will stimulate the increasing adoption of robotics in surgical instrumentation, allowing doctors to perform surgery remotely from anywhere in the world, said Sabic.

    Sabic believes that this trend can lead to growing use of its Ultem resins, LNP compounds and co-polymers in internal and external parts of next-generation surgical instruments because of their desirable properties, such as biocompatibility, lubricity, sterilization compatibility, and certification that can assist manufacturers in achieving regulatory compliance.

    Stork spreads its wings

    Just before K 2019 opened its doors in Düsseldorf, Germany, injection molding machine maker Stork Plastics Machinery (Hengelo, Netherlands) announced that Hydratec Industries was in far-reaching discussions to acquire a 75% interest in the company. Hydratec operates in the industrial systems and components space, serving the agricultural, automotive and healthcare markets. The remaining 25% share would remain with current shareholder Wadinko, a financial services company.

    The half-century-old Stork is one of the smaller players in the injection molding machine marketplace, but it has earned a global reputation, particularly for its large-tonnage, high-cavitation, thin-wall packaging machines, said Benjamin Sutch, Managing Partner at Chudleigh Sutch UK Ltd., which represents the company in foreign markets. It started working with Stork in Asia/Pacific about three years ago, Sutch told PlasticsToday from the Stork stand at K, and is now seriously looking at establishing a footprint for the company throughout North and South America.

    “We are actively seeking sales and service partners in the Americas and, indeed, several are ready to come on board,” said Sutch. “It’s very important to Stork to have live, zone-sensitive service for its customers.”

    I trained a neural net on my own book

    I spent the last two years writing a book on AI. It’s called You Look Like a Thing and I Love You, and today it’s finally out!

bot: caption: a sign on the side of a building

me: how many giraffes are there?

bot: 5

    And since training neural nets on things is a large percentage of my blog, of course I had to find out what would happen if I trained a neural net on my own book.

    I present to you: an exclusive excerpt from my book, You Look Like a Thing and I Love You (very nearly named “Kevin”) , as imitated by the neural net GPT-2-345M:

    “Using graphics as a starting point, AIs can place themselves and other objects in strange and unexpected places. Maybe a human was using a restroom in a strange combination that also produced a lightning bolt and a blank space when they approached the cubicle door—or maybe there’s a tree in the way that has fake bulbs set into it. Maybe there’re also human footprints that the AI thinks are there—which is odd if humans had accidentally walked along the bathroom’s edge. But what happens when the AIs get pushed, slammed, or tripped over by sheer force of their own carelessness? Maybe it’s time to train a new AI to deal with the situation in a more appropriate and smarter way.”

    “AIs can sometimes solve problems in unexpected ways. For instance, some AIs have been known to use chemistry to make their robots fly or generate piranha-infested ice.”

    “Artificial intelligence can also help automate tasks like splitting a car’s tires or slowing down a snail’s escape. Its versatility is its selling point.”

    “AIs can chew through a dataset like butter, crank something up to the size of a football, or even defeat nobody with a few lucky laser cuts to the skin.”

    “In case you were wondering, ‘how many giraffes are there?’ is a tough question to answer with any degree of precision. For one thing, as we all know, computing the number of giraffes is a huge time-sucking task.”

    No wonder one neural net called my book “A featureless masterpiece of tough-minded language”. And it’s no wonder another neural net wrote “You Look Like a Thing and I Love You will stay in your cabinet, shelves and cereal box!”

    I generated a longer excerpt, which you can read (along with bonus content every time I post) by entering your email here.

    Nurturing a future-ready workforce through applied learning

     Cache   

    Technological advances and digitalisation are rapidly disrupting global labour markets. This means unprecedented challenges, particularly for young Singaporeans, but also presents opportunities for those creative and agile enough to seize them. To support and prepare them for this new era, the education system is evolving as well.

    By 2022, some 75 million jobs may be displaced by a shift in the division of labour between humans and machines, according to The Future of Jobs Report 2018 compiled by the World Economic Forum (WEF). It is the inevitable impact of technological breakthroughs — high-speed mobile internet, artificial intelligence, big data analytics, cloud technology — that make up the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

    Increased automation and jobs redundancy, however, is not all bad. The same report predicts that 133 new roles may emerge in the same period, thanks to the adoption of new technologies. But WEF founder and executive chairman Mr Klaus Schwab warned in the report that greater investments in education and training are needed to help workers adapt in this age of rapid, unpredictable economic shifts and technological disruptions.

    “New technology adoption drives business growth, new job creation and augmentation of existing jobs, provided it can fully leverage the talents of a motivated and agile workforce who are equipped with futureproof skills,” Mr Schwab was quoted as saying.

    This has been echoed by the Singapore government. Speaking at the annual Singapore Economic Policy Forum in October last year, Trade and Industry Minister Chan Chun Sing said the rise of the digital economy poses an ongoing challenge. The emergence of new technologies, however, presents opportunities for the Republic to grow far beyond its present economic potential, he had added.

     

    By 2022, some 75 million jobs may be displaced by a shift in the division of labour between humans and machines

     

     

    LEADING INDUSTRY TRANSFORMATION

    The automotive industry is an example of how digitalisation is swiftly transforming the once familiar. Mr Dan Chia, an industry veteran of 17 years and now senior lecturer at the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT)’s infocomm technology cluster, highlighted how the rise of the connected car and autonomous driving has seen tech players come into direct competition with “traditional automotive players”.

    Even the Ministry of Transport and Land Transport Authority has come on board, launching various initiatives aimed to test and deploy autonomous vehicles in Singapore, he said. “These initiatives have placed Singapore as one of the global top spots in attracting talents and potential for new businesses — this was not apparent a decade ago,” said Mr Chia. British technology company Dyson, which designs and manufactures household appliances such as bladeless fans and vacuum cleaners, had announced in October 2018 that they will produce their electric vehicle here. Said Mr Chia: “It is an unprecedented move.”

    This transformation has also brought about a change in manpower needs. “The automotive industry now needs multi-disciplinary engineers, who have knowledge and skillsets in hardware and embedded software,” he said.

    To equip students with those knowledge and skills, SIT is currently partnering automotive manufacturing company, Continental Singapore, where Mr Chia spent 13 years of his career prior to becoming a faculty member, in its Telematics (Intelligent Transportation Systems Engineering) degree programme. Said Mr Lo Kien Foh, President and CEO of Continental Singapore: “The programme will equip graduates with a well-rounded engineering capability and much needed hands-on experience to make them industry-ready.”

    Things are also stirring in the food industry. The sector’s traditionally labour-intensive operations are moving towards a more sustainable model incorporating technology, said Associate Professor Wong Shin Yee, deputy programme director of the SIT-Massey University joint degree programme in Food Technology.

    “Moving forward, food technologists will play a critical role in this transformation roadmap,” said Assoc Prof Wong. “We have seen more and more SMEs hiring their first food technologist.”

    Among them is Mr John Cheng, director of Cheng Yew Heng Candy Factory, Singapore’s oldest manufacturer of rock sugar, and red and black jaggery sugar. Having worked for his family’s 72-year-old business for a decade, Mr Cheng is looking to modernise the business’s manufacturing processes. “Unfortunately, in terms of knowledge, we were limited. There’s not much to refer to also within the food sector, as we are one of the few sugar manufacturers here,” he said.

    Mr Cheng decided to tap on SIT’s chemical engineering and food technology cluster for help. “The students [in the food technology degree programme] help us better understand the scientific process — how sugar crystallisation occurs, bearing in mind all the environmental factors,” explained Mr Cheng. “Through the students’ laboratory work, we were able to adopt solutions that let us grow sugar crystals more efficiently in our factory.”

    Applied learning prepares students directly for industry demands and requirements as all degree programmes are created based on industry needs

     

    LEARN, UNLEARN AND RELEARN

    The collaboration between Cheng Yew Heng Candy Factory and SIT is just one of many that epitomises the university’s applied learning approach. Through modules designed for industry relevancy and which features the Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) — a compulsory eight to 12 months of relevant work within the course of their studies — students are able to directly use their knowledge to provide solutions for real-world challenges.

    Dr Zhou Yi, an associate professor in SIT’s engineering cluster, believes such applied learning experiences give students an edge when it comes to securing employment. “Applied learning prepares students directly for industry demands and requirements as all degree programmes are created based on industry needs,” said Assoc Prof Zhou, who is himself currently applying his knowledge in the real world — he is on secondment to SMRT Trains where he develops standards, processes and technologies aimed at improving the safety, quality and productivity of maintenance work.

    In the past two years, over 75 per cent of students from the IWSP with SMRT have joined SMRT’s engineering and management associates programme, which prepares graduates to be future engineering leaders.

    Similarly, final year students in the Food Technology programme are expected to spend one trimester on an individual food technology project, based on industrial settings, to solve problems faced in the food industry. “Students work under academic supervision and learn to integrate their basic food technology knowledge into practice. This project module is an opportunity for the students to experience complex industrial problems,” explained Assoc Prof Wong.

    IWSP also enables students to establish a strong sense of belonging to the company they are attached to, said Mr Chia. This, coupled with the work experience and industry exposure, will provide them with “a higher chance of being employed”.

    SIT’s Telematics (Intelligent Transportation Systems Engineering) degree programme, for example, works with the university’s Centre for Career Readiness to provide students with up to 20 months of industry experience across the programme’s three years. “These 20 months will enable the student to learn, adapt and provide added value relevant to the company, thus performing like an experienced engineer even though they are not an official employee as yet.”

    Such a head-start is critical with workforce transformations no longer just in the distant future. Companies are seeking to harness new and emerging technologies to reach ever higher levels of efficiency and expand into new markets. In order to succeed in a rapidly evolving economy, students and educators have to both take proactive approaches to learning, unlearning and relearning, from classrooms, into the workforce, and beyond.

    Digital skills in high demand as China's industries upgrade: report

     Cache   
    BEIJING, Nov. 3 (Xinhua) -- Chinese firms are increasingly looking for professionals with a set of digital skills in a bid to gain a competitive edge amid industrial upgrading, a report showed.

    Demand for talent with emerging skills triples that for those with common skills, with digitalization-related qualifications being prioritized in China, global employment-oriented social networking platform LinkedIn said in a talent intelligence report based on an analysis of recruitment information of its enterprise members.

    Full stack development, artificial intelligence and blockchain know-how are the most wanted technical skills, while compliance knowledge, digital marketing skills and risk management are also in high demand, the report showed.

    The growing demand for such skills echoes Chinese enterprises' drive to transform their businesses with digital technologies and tools, said Nancy Wang, head of talent solutions with LinkedIn China, adding that it is also necessary to take a data-based smart approach in talent recruitment and management.

    China is stepping up the promotion of the integration of digital technologies with the real economy to support the growth of agriculture, manufacturing and consumption. Global market intelligence firm IDC expects the digital economy to account for 60 percent of global GDP by 2022, with the share in China even higher at 65 percent.
