The Legal Profession in the Era of Digital Capitalism: Disruption or New Dawn?

Caserta, S. & Madsen, M. R., 2019, In : Laws. 8, 1, 17 p.

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

This article investigates the impact of what we label “digital capitalism” on the structure and organization of the legal profession. We explore whether the rise of digital capitalism is transforming the dynamics of the legal field by the introduction of new actors and ways of practicing law, which might challenge the traditional control (and monopoly) of jurists on the production of law. We find that not only has new service providers have already entered the legal market, but also new on-line tools for solving legal disputes or producing legal documents are gaining a foothold. Similarly, we also find that new intelligent search systems are challenging the role of junior lawyers and paralegals with regard to reviewing large sets of documents. However, big data techniques deployed to predict future courts’ decisions are not yet advanced enough to pose a challenge. Overall, we argue that these developments, will not only change legal practices, but are also likely to influence the internal structure and organization of the legal field. In particular, we argue that the processes of change associated with digitalisation is further accelerating the economization and commodification of the practice of law, whereby lawyers are decreasingly disinterested brokers in society and defenders of the public good, but rather increasingly service firms at the cutting edge of the capitalist economy. These developments are also triggering new forms of stratification of the legal field. While some legal actors will likely benefit from digitalisation and expand their business, either by integrating new technologies to reach more clients or by developing new niche areas of practices, the more routinized forms of legal practice are facing serious challenges and will most likely be replaced by technology and associated service firms.

La Computación en la Nube y Big Data

Corrales Compagnucci, M., Oct 2019, El Derecho de las TIC en Iberoamérica. Bauzá, M. (ed.). Montevideo, Uruguay: La Ley Uruguay, p. 797-818 22 p.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

La Computación en la Nube y Big Data han sido identificados como una “mina de oro.” Los datos se procesan masivamente en las infraestructuras que se encuentran en la Nube y éstos se convierten en información cuando se presentan en un contexto útil y significativo. Según el historiador de la información, James Gleick “la información es lo que hace que nuestro mundo funcione. Es la sangre y el combustible, el principio vital. Penetra en la ciencia de arriba abajo, transformando cada rama del conocimiento.” Vale decir, el conocimiento, y la transferencia de ese conocimiento es, por excelencia, la clave esencial de la evolución humana.

Sin embargo, al utilizar servicios de Computación en la Nube, se genera la duda de dónde irán a parar nuestros datos, y quién, y de qué manera utilizará esa información. El reciente escándalo de Facebook y Cambridge Analytica han ayudado a exacerbar esta inquietud entre los usuarios de Internet. Para paliar tal incertidumbre y crear una mayor seguridad jurídica, necesitamos un nuevo modelo. Un modelo que vaya más allá de las simples mejoras de los términos y condiciones de las licencias de uso propuestas por muchos de los senadores de los Estados Unidos en la audiencia con Mark Zuckerberg.

Por ello, este Capítulo presenta un nuevo modelo contractual que se enfoca en la arquitectura del software y basado en las teorías clásicas del Derecho y Economía. La interpretación teórica de los derechos de propiedad de datos es que muchas veces son vistos como externalidades negativas, y por lo tanto, necesitan ser negociados y aclarados, manteniendo los costos de transacción al mínimo. La tesis de este trabajo gira en torno a los servicios de los llamados “intermediarios de la innovación” o brokers, quienes utilizando este nuevo modelo, y el software como una herramienta técnico-legal, podrán acercar a las partes y así reducir la brecha de información asimétrica de una manera mucho más eficiente. De esta forma, los brokers podrían liberar a los usuarios de la tediosa tarea de seleccionar al proveedor correcto de la Nube y ayudarlos a negociar los términos contractuales de manera más efectiva y exitosa en igualdad de condiciones.

En síntesis, este nuevo modelo contractual genera automáticamente una nueva plantilla en formato XML, que ha sido incorporada a un software. Este conjunto de herramientas trata específicamente el tema de la propiedad de los datos y se podría implementar como un complemento de otras ofertas de SLA. De este modo, se podría transformar el problema de la propiedad de los datos en beneficios externos, lo cual se puede lograr permitiendo que los usuarios elijan diferentes opciones y seleccionen proveedores de la Nube según sus propios criterios.

Upscaling urban data science for global climate solutions

Creutzig, F., Lohrey, S., Bai, X., Baklanov, A., Dawson, R., Dhakal, S., Lamb, W. F., McPhearson, T., Minx, J., Munoz, E. & Walsh, B., 1 Jan 2019, In : Global Sustainability. 2, e2.

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Non-technical summary Manhattan, Berlin and New Delhi all need to take action to adapt to climate change and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. While case studies on these cities provide valuable insights, comparability and scalability remain sidelined. It is therefore timely to review the state-of-the-art in data infrastructures, including earth observations, social media data, and how they could be better integrated to advance climate change science in cities and urban areas. We present three routes for expanding knowledge on global urban areas: mainstreaming data collections, amplifying the use of big data and taking further advantage of computational methods to analyse qualitative data to gain new insights. These data-based approaches have the potential to upscale urban climate solutions and effect change at the global scale. Technical summary Cities have an increasingly integral role in addressing climate change. To gain a common understanding of solutions, we require adequate and representative data of urban areas, including data on related greenhouse gas emissions, climate threats and of socio-economic contexts. Here, we review the current state of urban data science in the context of climate change, investigating the contribution of urban metabolism studies, remote sensing, big data approaches, urban economics, urban climate and weather studies. We outline three routes for upscaling urban data science for global climate solutions: 1) Mainstreaming and harmonizing data collection in cities worldwide; 2) Exploiting big data and machine learning to scale solutions while maintaining privacy; 3) Applying computational techniques and data science methods to analyse published qualitative information for the systematization and understanding of first-order climate effects and solutions. Collaborative efforts towards a joint data platform and integrated urban services would provide the quantitative foundations of the emerging global urban sustainability science.

A Holistic Energy-Efficient Real-Time Scheduler for Mixed Stream and Batch Processing Workloads

 Cache   
In recent years we have experienced a wide adoption of novel distributed processing frameworks such as Apache Spark for handling batch and stream processing big data applications. An important aspect that has not been examined in these systems yet, is the energy consumption during the applications’ execution. Reducing the energy consumption of modern datacenters is a necessity, as datacenters contribute over 2 percent of the total US electric usage. However, efficiently scheduling applications in distributed processing systems can be challenging as there is a trade-off between minimizing the datacenter's energy usage and satisfying the application performance requirements. In this work we propose, ExpREsS, a scheduler for orchestrating the execution of Spark applications in a way that enables us to minimize the energy consumption while ensuring that the applications’ performance requirements are met. Our approach exploits time-series segmentation for capturing the applications’ energy usage and execution times, and then applies a novel DVFS technique to minimize the energy consumption. In order to tackle the limited number of application's profiling runs, we exploit regression techniques to predict the applications’ execution times and power consumption. Our detailed experimental evaluation using realistic workloads on our local cluster illustrates the working and benefits of our approach.
          

Efficient Data Placement and Replication for QoS-Aware Approximate Query Evaluation of Big Data Analytics

 Cache   
Enterprise users at different geographic locations generate large-volume data that is stored at different geographic datacenters. These users may also perform big data analytics on the stored data to identify valuable information in order to make strategic decisions. However, it is well known that performing big data analytics on data in geographical-located datacenters usually is time-consuming and costly. In some delay-sensitive applications, the query result may become useless if answering a query takes too long time. Instead, sometimes users may only be interested in timely approximate rather than exact query results. When such approximate query evaluation is the case, applications must sacrifice timeliness to get more accurate evaluation results or tolerate evaluation result with a guaranteed error bound obtained from analyzing the samples of the data to meet their stringent timeline. In this paper, we study quality-of-service (QoS)-aware data replication and placement for approximate query evaluation of big data analytics in a distributed cloud, where the original (source) data of a query is distributed at different geo-distributed datacenters. We focus on the problems of placing data samples of the source data at some strategic datacenters to meet stringent query delay requirements of users, by exploring a non-trivial trade-off between the cost of query evaluation and the error bound of the evaluation result. We first propose an approximation algorithm with a provable approximation ratio for a single approximate query. We then develop an efficient heuristic algorithm for evaluating a set of approximate queries with the aim to minimize the evaluation cost while meeting the delay requirements of these queries. We finally demonstrate the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed algorithms through both experimental simulations and implementations in a real test-bed, real datasets are employed. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithms are promis- ng.
          

On Runtime Communication and Thermal-Aware Application Mapping and Defragmentation in 3D NoC Systems

 Cache   
Many-core systems connected by 3D Networks-on-Chip (NoC) are emerging as a promising computation engine for systems like cloud computing servers, big data systems, etc. Mapping applications at runtime to 3D NoCs is the key to maintain high throughput of the overall chip under a thermal/power constraint. However, the goals of optimizing both the communication latency and chip peak temperature are contradicting due to several reasons. First, exploiting the vertical TSV links can accelerate communications, while low peak temperature prefers that the tasks to be mapped closer to the heat sink, instead of using the vertical links. Second, mapping tasks in close proximity can reduce communication latency, but at the cost of poor heat dissipation. To address these issues, in this paper, we propose an efficient runtime mapping algorithm to reduce both communication latency and overall application running time under thermal constraint. In essence, this algorithm first selects a 3D cuboid core region of a specific shape for each incoming application by setting the region's number of occupied vertical layers and its distance to the heat sink, in order to optimize its communication performance and peak temperature. Next, the exact locations of the core regions in the chip are determined, followed by a task-to-core mapping. A defragmentation algorithm is also proposed to keep free core regions contiguous. The experimental results have confirmed that, compared to two recently proposed runtime mapping algorithms, our proposed approach can reduce the total running time by up to 48% and communication cost by up to 44%, with a low runtime overhead.

Three Qatari students to represent nation in Huawei ICT Competition regional final

 Cache   

Huawei, a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, has announced the winners of the Qatar edition of the Huawei Middle East ICT Competition 2019, held recently in collaboration with the Ministry ofEducation and Higher Education.

The longstanding competition, which falls under Huawei’s strategy to develop the global ICT talent ecosystem, aims to nurture local talent in the ICT field with a vision to bring digital to every person, home and organization for a fully-connected and intelligent world.

This year’s winning team, comprising three students and their professor, was chosen from a field of 253 finalists, who competed following the preliminary round involving entries from 4 universities. This year’s finalists from Qatar represent Qatar University and Community College of Qatar. In addition to competing against other winners from the Middle East, the regional winners will be invited back to China to take part in a competition with global Huawei ICT Competition winners.

The competition promotes innovation and creativity while serving as a bridge between the classroom and the workplace. By nurturing university students’ talent in Qatar, it also contributes to increasing national ICT competitiveness while supporting Qatar National Vision 2030. Having already received certificates and prizes as Qatar’snational winners, the local teams havenowearned a trip to China this November, where they will compete with their fellow finalists from around the Middle Eastregion to win the ICT Competition’s grand prize – US$30,000.

Their visit will include the once-in-a-lifetime chance to work amongst some of the world’s most renowned technology pioneers in Huawei’s facilities. Participants will conduct field experiments at Huawei's specialized labs and research centers in its headquarters in Shenzhen, helping equip students with the tools needed to tackle complex challenges in areas such as cloud computing, IoT, and network security. The technical program will be complemented by anumber of cultural experiences and knowledge-exchangeopportunities while in China.

In addition, students and their mentors will have the opportunity to meet their country’s ambassador to China during the Huawei-organized Ambassadors Summit Discussions event. This will provide the participants with the chance to discuss with respected leaders and cultural envoys their future ambitions and anticipations for their national ICT sector.

Congratulating the winners, Frank Fan, CEO Huawei Technologies Qatar, said: “Huawei recognizes the importance of nurturing local talent so that they have the knowledge and expertise to lead tomorrow’s highly connected, intelligent world. By investing in future talent and building a more robust ICT talent ecosystem inQatar, we are investing in the future of the country. The winning teams are well deserved of the honor to represent their country in the Huawei ICT Competition global final in China. I offer them my congratulations and wish them the best of luck in the competition’s final stage.”

Farhan Khan, Vice President of Huawei Qatar, said: “Qatar has exceptional ICT talent, which we are proud to nurture through opportunities such as the Huawei ICT Competition. Huawei is committed to creating opportunities to empower youth with the skills needed to further digitalization on a national and global scale.”

Throughout the Huawei ICT Competition stages, contestants receive the latest updates onemerging technologies that are reshaping Lebanon’s digital economy. These include Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, the Internet of Things (IoT), and most importantly 5G broadband—seen as a crucial digital-service enabler. The competition is a unique opportunity for students to test their abilities in these cutting-edge fields, and helps colleges and universities to better understand the talent requirements of today’s top businesses and government leaders.

During the final, participants are equipped with an online guide and are supervised by university professors. University professors play the role of the student’s tutor, accompanying national winners to Huawei’s headquarters and discussing with Huawei the future development of the competition and Lebanon’s wider ICT talent ecosystem. The last edition of the Huawei ICT Competition 2018 saw 14,551 students participate from across the Middle East. From these, 4,113 students were selected to take part in the preliminary rounds. 310 students passed on to the final round, and 39 traveled to China to compete internationally. A total of 17ministries and 226universities took part in total across the region.

165: Building Custom Apps to Empower Your Unique Situation

 Cache   
Eddie Wang, Growth Hacker at App Sheet, and Mike Saltijeral, Owner of Industrial Fence Inc, join us on this episode 165 of Art of Construction.   In many recent episodes we have discussed the Big Data explosion currently happening in design and construction. When on this topic, the question usually arises of what exactly the best way is to utilize this data to help grow your business. If you ask AppSheet, the answer is that there is no one best way. In fact, the best way will inevitably be different for each and every company. It is with this mindset that AppSheet provides a no-code application development platform that allows users to create mobile, tablet, and web applications using data sources like Google Drive, DropBox, Office 365, and other cloud-based spreadsheet and database platforms.   We’ve had a ton of construction platforms on this show before, but AppSheet is unique in that it is all about empowering the user to create a custom app instead of selling the user something pre-designed. In order to better tell the story of why this is powerful, Mike Saltijeral joined us to explain how AppSheet has given him the ultimate freedom to create unique and innovative solutions to the situations his fencing company faces.   Mike’s story is one that many business owners currently adopting new technology can relate to.

CONFINDUSTRIA MODA:

48.000 POSTI DI LAVORO NEI PROSSIMI ANNI

 

Durante il 2° Mastertech della Moda a Job&Orienta 2019, Confindustria Moda conferma il continuo bisogno di nuovi addetti, specialmente per le professioni tecniche, e di nuovi profili manageriali 

 

Verona, 29 novembre 2019Confindustria Moda, la federazione che riunisce le imprese e le associazioni del settore tessile moda e dell'accessorio, ha tenuto oggi a Verona il convegno "2° Mastertech della Moda, dalla formazione al lavoro" nell'ambito della manifestazione Job&Orienta 2019. Nel corso dell'evento, Confindustria Moda ha annunciato che si stima che nei prossimi anni il settore avrà bisogno di effettuare 48.000 nuove assunzioni entro il 2023, sia per rimpiazzare i pensionamenti previsti sia per la crescita che il comparto ha registrato. Di queste assunzioni, ben il 35% saranno per diplomati (in gran parte degli istituti tecnici e professionali) e oltre il 7% laureati. Nel dettaglio per il settore Tessile-Abbigliamento e Pellicceria verranno cercate 22.000 persone, per Pelletteria-Concia-Calzature 23.100, per Occhialeria 1.900 e per Oreficeria/Gioielleria 1.000.

 

Si è trattato di un incontro nazionale che ha richiamato a Verona, nell'auditorium della Fiera, oltre 500 giovani delle scuole tecniche e professionale e degli ITS della moda di tutte le regioni italiane che hanno potuto incontrare simbolicamente il loro futuro professionale, cioè le imprese della moda, rappresentate per l'occasione da una folta delegazione di imprenditori e dai massimi dirigenti delle associazioni di categoria che fanno parte di Confindustria Moda.

 

Il Presidente di Confindustria Moda Claudio Marenzi ha ricordato l'importanza per l'intero Paese del settore moda, che nel suo complesso vale oltre 95 miliardi di fatturato (in massima parte esportato) con 67.000 aziende e oltre 580.000 addetti. C'è quindi necessità di una forte azione di orientamento verso i ragazzi e le loro famiglie alla quale sono chiamati opportunamente a collaborare le imprese, le scuole e le istituzioni.

 

Per questo, anche con questo secondo "Mastertech della Moda", si è confermata l'alleanza tra tutte le associazioni di impresa riunite in Confindustria Moda (tessile e abbigliamento, calzature, pelletteria, occhialeria, oreficeria, pelliccerie e concia) e le scuole, riunite nella Rete nazionale TAM, per gli istituti tecnici e professionali, e nella Rete ITS Moda, per gli istituti tecnici superiori. Il tutto con la collaborazione del MIUR, presente al convegno con il dirigente del dipartimento competente dott. Fabrizio Proietti, e delle Regioni, rappresentate per l'occasione dall'assessore del Veneto Elena Donazzan.

 

I ragazzi, accompagnati dai loro docenti e dai dirigenti dei loro istituti, hanno assistito a 3 interessanti sfilate di moda, preparate con cura e messe in scena dagli allievi stessi, con il coordinamento dell'I.T. Ruzza di Padova, dall'istituto D'Este Caracciolo di Napoli e dall'istituto Cattaneo Deledda di Modena. Dalla visione dei prodotti finali di tutti i comparti della moda, riuniti nelle sfilate (anche modelli e modelle sono stati scelti tra i ragazzi delle scuole di moda), i partecipanti al convegno sono stati condotti alla scoperta delle professioni tecniche, tipiche delle varie filiere produttive, che sole rendono possibile e riconosciuta in tutto il mondo l'altissima qualità tecnica e creativa della moda italiana.

 

Sul palco sono poi stati protagonisti del pomeriggio gli stessi giovani studenti ed ex studenti, ora giovani lavoratori, delle scuole di moda che, raccontando le proprie esperienze di vita, di studio e di lavoro, sono diventati i veri testimonial delle grandi opportunità professionali che questo settore offre a tutti i livelli, da quelli operativi, a quelli tecnici, a quelli manageriali.

 

Tra gli interventi anche quelli di Costanza Patti, direttore generale di Fondirigenti, concentrato sulle figure professionali manageriali richieste nel settore TAM, e di Maria Raffaella Caprioglio, Presidente di Umana: entrambe le organizzazioni operano al crocevia tra scuole ed imprese e sono fortemente interessate alla formazione dei giovani dedicata all'industria della moda.

 

L'incontro è stato concluso dall'intervento di Elena Donazzan, assessore Istruzione Formazione e Lavoro della Regione Veneto, che ha confermato la vicinanza e il grande interesse delle istituzioni per l'industria della moda e per le grandi opportunità che questo settore industriale offre ai giovani.

Dell announces On Demand, PowerOne, expands PCaaS, focuses on customer advocacy, invests in SMB

 Cache   

Dell was always been relevant for small business and education markets but is now in an exalted position to stake its claim within the enterprise segment and the new battleground – the midmarket firms. In this Techaisle Take analysis I cover Dell Technologies’ On Demand offering, Progress Made Real initiative, expanded PCaaS for SMBs, focus on customer advocacy, continued SMB investment, new converged infrastructure PowerOne, Unified workspace solution and channel partner strategy.

Dell Technologies Summit in Austin was a showcase of bold announcements and understated commitments to corporate social good and customer advocacy. Dell has certainly transformed in the last five years. It has moved along a path from a PC company to end-to-end solutions provider to a digital transformation partner to a place where it is driving its own transformation through the power of analytics with a goal of delivering customer success. Dell has catapulted itself into relevancy for the next decade.

In 1984, when Michael Dell founded his namesake company in his college dorm, I was a freshly minted engineering college graduate working through my first job at a tractor manufacturing plant in India. My first interaction with Dell was in early nineties when an India-based firm was awarded a contract manufacturing deal. I was then running the secretariat of a computer manufacturer’s association in India. Since then not only technology has progressed but both the consumers and commercial buyers have evolved. Dell has not only moved with the times but sometimes has been ahead of the curve. One such “ahead of the curve” initiative is “Progress Made Real for 2030” announced at the summit.

Progress Made Real for 2030 stands on four pillars:

  1. Advancing sustainability: for example, one-for-one recycling, that is, every product that Dell sells it will recycle an equivalent product
  2. Cultivating inclusion: committing to 50 percent of Dell workforce to comprise of women by 2030, 40 percent of managers of people will be women, 25 percent of US workforce will be Hispanic or African American
  3. Transforming lives: for example, Dell’s work with Tata Trusts, with a goal to reach 40m under-privileged people from the current 11m
  4. Upholding ethics and privacy

Enabled by a combination of pervasive use of technology and vastly-expanded solution options, the technology user and buyer community has become more diverse in both composition and focus. Business decision makers (BDMs) are not content to await IT’s blessing to pursue technology options that align with business needs: an increasingly tech-savvy business user/management community plays an ever-expanding role in assessing technology options, and even in specifying solutions and managing their rollout. At the same time, the solution options themselves have expanded to become more accessible to non-IT staff. Some technologies, such as analytics and IoT, directly address business management questions. Others, notably cloud, provide support and delivery options that give business units the option of avoiding IT oversight. Even core IT functions, such as storage management (especially with respect to Big Data) and security (particularly with regard to cloud and mobility) are reshaped by system requirements imposed by BDM needs. It is not out of place, as an analyst, to say that Dell has been a little late in recognizing and pursuing the shifting patterns. Regardless, Dell has been a believer of technology democratization and has begun a concerted effort to manage technology chaos with a differentiated customer strategy and drive the ability to scale human capacity. These are very lofty and moonshot initiatives. But then Dell is a founder-led company whose founder is skilled at assembling the proverbial ship piece-by-piece and navigating it through uncharted and occasionally choppy waters.

Dell Technologies differentiated customer strategy is built on four key points:

  1. Driving social impact with purpose-driven relationships
  2. Creating customer advocates for life by honoring customer loyalty and delivering success
  3. Making it easy to do business with Dell by executing on basics
  4. Unlocking customer value by leading with insights

Dell’s customer advocacy team is constantly analyzing 9.5K social conversations per day, looks at 33K customer verbatims in addition to its 16K sales team members sharing feedback. Dell’s plan to delivering a seamless and simplified customer experience is not very different from recently announced customer lifecycle experience, aka race track, by Cisco. End goals are the same, approaches are slightly different. But the fact that all suppliers are landing at the same end-state is significant on how the technology industry has evolved.

Perhaps the most important announcement at Dell Tech Summit was its On Demand offering. Dell went to great lengths to explain its genesis and development but it is clear that it a direct response to the growing popularity of HPE GreenLake. Regardless of HPE commanding the media-waves Dell has jumped headlong into the as-a-service, post-transactional market with Dell Technologies On Demand Autonomous Infrastructure available via DT Cloud. Dell is prepared to deliver solutions today and at scale. And it is also within reach of midmarket businesses. Key takeaways of Dell’s On Demand solutions are:

  1. On-demand, consumption-based and as-a-service solutions for on-prem infrastructure / services is customizable, integrated across the full-stack for Dell's end-to-end portfolio from edge to core to cloud
  2. Dell widened the product of their Flex On Demand offerings for PowerEdge servers and their new PowerOne autonomous converged infrastructure solution (announced at Dell Technologies Summit). With this announcement, Dell’s consumption-based on-demand solutions now cover PCs, servers, storage, CI/HCI, IoT, datacenters, networking and data protection. Ideally applicable for firms with a minimum $250K 3-year contract-value but end-points including PCaaS is available for SMBs (at lower committed contract values).
  3. Dell knows how to create simplicity within complexity. Businesses can customize and select their on-demand path from:
    1. Payment: Pay As You Grow, Flex On Demand, Data Center Utility
    2. Services: ProSupport, ProDeploy, Managed services
    3. Portfolio: Edge, Endpoint, Core, Cloud
  4. On Demand offering provides two options for channel partners to participate:
    1. Referral fee – 7%-10% on committed contract value including tier credit program benefit. Dell owns and manages the customer. The partner still plays an active role in managing the customer relationship. The referral fee model positions the partner to address the customer’s solution needs, and enhance their customer relationship without having to take on the usage and credit risk associated with offering a pay for use solution.
    2. Resell – Partner owns and manages the customer. Allows partner to uplift base usage charge and earn program benefits including rebates, marketing development funds, and tier credit

Pay As You Grow is for committed workloads. The metering coverage in Flex On Demand includes processor, memory, and GB consumed. Data Center Utility adds metering based on VM and per port. The solution is still in its early stages and Dell views this as a journey rather than a destination. But the offering, in early stages, is finding acceptance at many of Dell’s customers. Scalar (a CDW company) has been configuring on-demand solutions with unlimited scalability for major Hollywood studios.

Relative to the cost of conventional hardware and software, on-demand cloud solutions are generally more cost effective than equivalent CAPEX-based on-premise alternatives, and its OPEX-based billing model works well for cash-constrained SMBs and midmarket firms. Cloud’s ‘as-a-Service’ delivery model reduces the need for individual SMBs and midmarket firms to attract and retain specialized IT staff; scale up as the organization grows, and cloud provides SMBs and midmarket firms that are often unable to maintain refresh cycles with ‘always-on’ access to current technology.

SMBs are not being left out from Dell’s strategy. In fact, small and midmarket businesses are two of the fastest growing segments for Dell. Its small business advisory has witnessed tremendous success but the team is not resting on its laurels. It aims to add 100 more small business advisors in the next one year. Each advisor goes through 160 hours of in-person classroom training. Dell has built a progressive hierarchical advisory structure, based on “needs complexity” to help SMBs learn, identify, buy and deploy technology. Small businesses with specific and simple requirements can also use Eva – a chatbot – to help guide through product selection and purchase.


          

A sea rescue operation system based on LoRa

 Cache   
A sea rescue operation system based on LoRa Dehda, PS; Jayram, S; Abu Mahfouz, Adnan MI; Ouahada, K Current Personal Flotation Devices (PFD), such as life jackets, are equipped with reflective tape and water- activated LED units. As technology advances, it is imperative that safety equipment is enhanced as well This motivates the use of Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) technology, such as LoRa (Long Range), to allow for easier detection of individuals when disaster strikes at sea. The methodology involves developing a transmitter device, to be placed in a life jacket and a receiver device ,to be placed in a sea rescue helicopter. MultiTech 's range of LoRa enabled modules were used This includes the LoRa mCard, MultiTech MultiConnect Conduit, LoRa mDot and the MultiTech micro developer kit Sensors placed in the life jacket were that of a pulse sensor, water sensor and GPS sensor. It was found that within a 4 km range, the transmitter transmitted data to the receiver within 1.9 ms. The GPS sensor provided the latitude and longitude of the user with an error margin of 7 meters. The pulse sensor produced a BPM value which was 98% accurate compared to the wrist method test of finding ones BPM. Therefore, in this paper, the authors designed and implemented a sea rescue system which depicted how LoRa can be utilized in such an application and shows how it can be used to transfer data from a device attached to a PFD to a receiver placed in a sea rescue helicopter. Hence and so forth, the use of water sensors, GPS sensors and pulse sensors have been attached to a transmitter device found in a life jacket which then transfer live information to a receiver placed in a sea rescue helicopter. The overall aim of the system is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of current sea rescue operations.

Mi nueva vida como CDCO (Chief Digital Consumer Officer)

 Cache   
Hace tres años y medio, cuando me convirtieron en CDO de Telefónica, se montó un lío en los medios que me pilló totalmente por sorpresa. La dimensión de una empresa como Telefónica no se puede imaginar hasta que ves el impacto que tiene en la sociedad cualquiera de los cambios que se realizan en ella. Entonces, cuando me nombraron Chief Data Officer del grupo, escribí un artículo para explicar en qué consistía aquel cambio. Lo titulé "Mi nueva vida como Chief Data Officer" y hoy he querido hacer lo mismo para contaros las cosas que voy a hacer, y de las que seguro que os hablo mucho por mi blog.

Figura 1: Mi nueva vida como CDCO (Chief Digital Consumer Officer)

Como sabéis los que lleváis ya años por aquí, comencé en Telefónica en el año 2012, con el proyecto Talentum que era parte de Wayra. Allí estuve durante un año y tres meses trabajando con Gonzalo Martín-Villa en la parte de Innovación de Telefónica. Hasta que me reclamaron para otro proyecto. 

En aquel momento Telefónica quería acelerar la parte de Telefónica Digital y construir un negocio en diferentes sectores, como el IoT, la Ciberseguridad, el negocio de Cloud o los Servicios Financieros. Una apuesta valiente de Telefónica para transformar la función de la cuenta de resultados de la compañía. Y Telefónica pensó en mí para acelerar el negocio de Ciberseguridad. Así que me fui allí con mi equipo de Informática 64 y comenzamos a trabajar en ElevenPaths poco más de una veintena de personas, para poco ir construyendo el negocio de seguridad en el grupo Telefónica

En los inicios ElevenPaths nació dentro de Telefónica Digital como una unidad de Innovación, pero al año yo pedí llevarlo a negocio y meterlo en la unidad B2B de la casa, por entonces Business Solutions donde creció en todo el grupo de manera más rápida y llegando pronto al "Milestone" de los 100 M€ de P&S de ciberseguridad B2B en ElevenPaths antes de que me tocará dar el siguiente paso. Entonces ya me parecía una locura, pero comparado con el tamaño de Telefónica no es que sea muy grande.

En el 2015, el grupo Telefónica quiso hacer un proyecto transformacional muy fuerte. Quería convertir la compañía en una empresa Data-Centric que pudiera tomar Data-Driven Decisions. Había que cambiar muchas cosas. Cultura, Infraestructuras, Productos, Servicios y formas de trabajar. Así que el Presidente se tomó en serio esta dura tarea y apadrinó bajo su ala la unidad CDO (Chief Data Officer) con la elección de Ian Small para tal responsabilidad. 

Yo comencé a ayudar a Ian Small con tal tarea, pero continué con mi labor de hacer crecer ElevenPaths en el sector B2B y en el sector B2C en aquel tiempo. Tenía la misión, como os conté en el artículo de la historia de LUCA & ElevenPaths, de hacer que Telefónica fuera uno de los grandes proveedores de Ciberseguridad, y quería estar con el ojo encima de ella hasta el último minuto, pero ya sabía que me iba a tocar la labor de convertirme en CDO y hacer ese hercúleo proyecto de transformación.

Figura 2: Tamaño de CDO en 2016. Diapo del All Hands de la unidad

Y llegó 2016, Mayo, y me nombraron CDO con una misión preciosa y a la vez compleja de ejecutar. Así que tocó centrarse en la transformación y crear la visión, la estrategia, las infraestructuras, los productos y los servicios para la 4ª Plataforma de Telefónica. Un trabajo apasionante y emocionante al mismo tiempo. Además, tenía la misión de construir una nueva unidad para ayudar a los clientes a hacer la misma transformación y construir LUCA, la unidad de BigData & AI que comenzamos a definir desde mi llegada a la rol de CDO.

Figura 3: Desde 2016 tocó ser el "Chairman" de ElevenPaths

En ese momento ElevenPaths iba ya como un tiro, y tuve que delegar las funciones de CEO en Pedro Pablo Pérez, que desde ese momento se convirtió en el dueño del timón de ElevenPaths mientras que yo me quedé con el rol de "Chairman" para estar solo asesorándole, haciendo una supervisión periódica y ayudándole en todas las locuras que se le fueron ocurriendo. Creedme que cuando nos juntamos Pedro Pablo y yo las charlas son una locura divertida de la que salen muchas cosas buenas. Que nos juntáramos en Telefónica ha sido uno los regalos que me ha dado esta casa.

Figura 4: El viaje de CDO de 4ª Plataforma a Living Apps
pasando por AURA, Movistar Home y Haac

Y comenzamos a andar, y definimos AURA sobre la 4ªPlataforma, y después Movistar Home, y luego Home as a Computer, y luego Conexión Segura, y los equipos de ingeniería hicieron la tecnología de SmartWiFi, y los equipos de Internal Use Cases hicieron los algoritmos del proyecto de Device Recommender llamado internamente "Phoenix", y el equipo de innovación nos trajo a la 4ª Plataforma los algoritmos de recomendación de contenidos de vídeo, hicimos el equipo de Ideas Locas para innovar en muchas áreas, y llegamos a las Living Apps... y sin darnos cuenta hicimos un montón de servicios B2C para nuestro Hogar Movistar basados en una ansia por innovar, arriesgar, y empujar al tecnología más allá de los límites para los que se pensó. 

Figura 5: Hogar Movistar

Llegado 2019, LUCA, que vino al mundo en Noviembre de 2016 ya había  duplicado los ingresos de BigData & AI para el grupo Telefónica, pero también había hecho crecer un 30% el negocio de Advertising que también está dentro de la unidad guiada por Elena Gil. Mientras, ElevenPaths, guiada por Pedro Pablo apunta ya en su plan estratégico no a varios cientos de millones de euros, sino a llegar a 1.000 millones en su roadmap a corto.
Mientras, la 4ª plataforma ya está desplegada en 10 países, Aura en 9 de ellos y en más de 50 canales digitales, hay más de 60 soluciones desplegadas sobre la 4ª Plataforma, lanzamos las Living Apps en 800.000 hogares, Movistar Home sigue creciendo a buen ritmo en los hogares Movistar+ más tecnológicos, Conexión Segura se implantó en toda la planta de Telefónica de España, el proyecto de Network Tokenization está casi acabado, y nos hemos metido en un buen manojo de nuevos proyectos.

Figura 7: Unidad CDO en Abril de 2019

En total, aquel proyecto de CDO que comenzó con 279 empleados, se había convertido en una mega-unidad totalmente integrada en el negocio B2B de Seguridad y BigData & AI, en los servicios B2C de Telefónica y en las plataforma y sistemas internos de la casa. Ya no era una proyecto en incubación. Ya CDO se había convertido en core de negocio con una unidad de 622 empleados en ella, más todos los compañeros de las subsidiarias, y más los que se han ido incorporando durante este año que hemos estado en aceleración en seguridad.

Ahora con la nueva reorganización, el jefe me ha pedido que continúe con el ansia de transformación, innovación y creación de servicios digitales que hemos tenido estos casi 8 años que llevo en la casa, y me ha dado una responsabilidad un poco más grande, con una unidad un poco mayor que la que llevaba y los proyectos en incubación de CDO se han metido en el core de negocio. Se han hecho mayores. Han pasado de ser una inciativa en incubación que había que apadrinar a unos proyectos en el core de Telefónica.

Así que ahora me voy a ocupar principalmente de tres grandes bloques más una labor extra. 
1) Innovación en Telefónica. Esto implica innovación interna con el área de Product Innovation donde están los proyectos de Edge, de Gaming, de Internet para Todos - entre otros -, Network Tokenization, mi equipo de Ideas Locas, LEIA, Wayra, Open Future y el programa de becas de talento que tenía en CDO.
2) B2C Product & Services: Esto implica los productos y servicios que estamos desarrollando para los clientes de Telefónica. Y es una gran responsabilidad, ya que significa la mayor parte de los ingresos del grupo en todo el mundo. En este grupo estarán Home as a Computer, Living Apps, Movistar Home, Devices, Pricing, SmartWifi, Global Vídeo Platform, Movistar Car, Movistar Cloud, Financial Services y todos los productos y servicios nuevos que vayamos construyendo.
3) Digital Platforms: Por supuesto, nuestra querida 4ª Plataforma, Aura que es transversal a todos los productos, Novum como el end-point en dispositivos móviles, pero también todos los proyectos de transformación digital como el Contact-Center Cognitivo o la automatización de procesos entre otros.
Como se puede imaginar, no me voy a aburrir. Es un reto precioso el que tenemos por delante, y de una gran responsabilidad, pero a la vez me bulle la cabeza con cien mil ideas y cosas que bailan dentro de mi pizarra mental. Y quiero que comiencen los días ya para empezar a tope con ello.

Pero todavía tengo una tarea extra. Voy a seguir siendo el Chairman de ElevenPaths aunque ahora esté con los compañeros de B2B,  así que voy a seguir pasándome por los sitios de mis compañeros de Faast, Latch, Masapp, Tacyt, por el Lab de Innovación, para seguir haciendo lo mismo que hacía antes. Darles ideas, abrazos y asesorar y ayudar a Pedro Pablo como he hecho estos tres últimos años mientras que él ha sido el CEO y yo el "Chairman". Yo le asesoraba y ayudaba y él hacía que ElevenPaths creciera y creciera y creciera. Y por supuesto, como he hecho estos tres años, estar con ellos en todos los eventos Security Innovation Day de ElevenPaths

La otra unidad que se gradúa es LUCA. Que después de su crecimiento tiene que pasar con sus compañeras de viaje IoT, ElevenPaths y Cloud a la unidad de B2B (de la que viene antes ElevenPaths cuando era aún pequeñita). Ellos seguirán bajo Elena Gil llevando todos los productos y servicios de Big Data & AI, entre los que están SmartSteps, LUCA Comms, LUCA AI Wizzard, LUCA Suite, etc... Y ellos serán los encargados de comercializar las soluciones basadas en las Living Apps, así que seguiremos estando muy cerquita.


Dice mi compañero, amigo y guardaespaldas personal Enrique Blanco que hasta que no haga los 10 años en Telefónica sigo siendo un becario, pero la sensación que tengo ahora es de haberme graduado. Me han sacado de incubación y me han puesto como compañeros a los grandes ejecutivos de la compañía que bajo la tutela de nuestro Consejero Delegado Angel Vilá trabajamos por los revenues de la compañía.

Figura 9: Organigrama de La Nueva Telefónica

Me han puesto en primera línea de negocio con Mark Evans, Emilio Gayo, Christian Gevara, José Cerdán, Enrique Blanco, Guillermo Ansaldo, Markus Haas y Alfonso Gómez. Todos ellos, graduados con nota hace mucho tiempo y con las responsabilidades de Telefónica de España, VIVO, O2 Uk, O2 Ge, Telefónica Hispan, Telefónica Infra, el negocio B2B y la red y sistemas de todo el grupo. Ahora todos mis esfuerzos son para que la innovación, el negocio B2C, las plataformas digitales de transformación y yo mismo consigamos estar a su altura en esta nueva etapa en la que nos metemos.

Saludos Malignos!

We don’t need no observation: The use and regulation of facial recognition in Brazilian public schools

Introduction

The use of facial recognition technology in schools around the world in countries such as China and the United States has encouraged the similar use of this technology by other countries, including Brazil. However, it has also raised questions and concerns about the privacy of students. Because of this, analyses of the nature and consequences of the use of facial recognition technology in diverse scenarios are necessary.

This report presents a brief reflection on the use of facial recognition technologies in Brazilian public schools, including in the state of Pernambuco, where IP.rec is based, and considers their implications for citizens' rights to privacy, as well as the possibility of the technology being regulated by existing laws.

Background

Artificial intelligence (AI), algorithms, the “internet of things”, smart cities, facial recognition, biometrics, profiling, big data. When one tries to imagine the future of big cities, it is impossible not to think about these terms. But is the desire to make cities “smarter” jeopardising the privacy of Brazilian citizens? Does this desire turn people into mere guinea pigs for experimentation with new technologies in a laboratory of continental proportions?

The use of facial recognition technologies in Brazilian public schools has already been implemented in several cities such as Jaboatão dos Guararapes (in the state of Pernambuco), Cabo de Santo Agostinho (Pernambuco), Arapiraca (Alagoas), Cravinhos (São Paulo), Tarumã (São Paulo), Potia (São Paulo), Paranavaí (Paraná), Guaíra (Paraná), Viana (Espírito Santo), Anápolis (Goiás), Senador Canedo (Goiás) and Vila Bela da Santíssima Trindade (Mato Grosso).[1] Among the features provided by the so-called Ponto iD[2] system is the monitoring of the attendance of students at school without the need to take roll call. The system also aims to help optimise class time, as the time spent on the roll call is saved; help manage school meals, as cooks are notified of the exact number of students in class as soon as the gates close; and decrease the school drop-out rate, as guardians receive, through an app, notifications that their child is in the school. The last is noted as a primary social consequence of using the technology. To implement the system, the city of Jaboatão dos Guararapes, for example, has spent BRL 3,000 (USD 780) per month per school.

The technology provider's webpage states that the solution is designed in an integrated way, linking government departments. Because of this, a diverse range of public institutions can share information with each other. For example, according to the government of the city of Jaboatão dos Guararapes, if a student is absent for more than five days, the Guardianship Council is notified as the system also shares students’ information with that body.[3]

In 2015, the service provider also stated that the system would be connected to the Bolsa Família programme,[4] which is a direct income transfer programme aimed at families living in poverty and extreme poverty throughout the country, and intended to help them out of their vulnerable situation. In Brazil, more than 13.9 million families are served by Bolsa Família.[5] The receipt of the benefits is conditioned, among other duties of a student whose family is a beneficiary of the programme, to a minimum school attendance of 85% for children and adolescents from six to 15 years old and 75% for adolescents 16 and 17 years old.[6]

Privacy? Absent. Risks? Present

As previously observed by several scholars, digital technologies not only make behaviour easier to monitor, but also make behaviour more traceable.[7] Given this potential, a number of critical issues in relation to the application of facial recognition systems in educational contexts were identified.

According to the service provider, the system works off a platform that uses cloud computing capabilities, but it was not possible to identify any information regarding the level of security related to the storage of collected data in the company’s privacy policy available on its official website. Despite this, among the said benefits offered by the technology implemented are not only the monitoring of students’ attendance and their school performance, but the possibility of monitoring students’ personal health data.

The mayor of the city of Jaboatão dos Guararapes[8] states that in addition to facial recognition, the software also offers, through the collection of other information, the possibility of better planning the number of daily school meals. As soon as the school’s gates are closed, the cooks receive via SMS[9] the exact number of students who are in the classrooms. Meanwhile, according to the secretary of education of Jaboatão dos Guararapes, Ivaneide Dantas, at some point even the health problems of students will be identified and parents informed using the system.

However, the lack of information that is included in the company’s privacy policy,[10] or on city halls’ websites, constitutes a critical point in the relationship between students and the education system. The problem becomes all the more obvious since the solution involves sensitive data – biometric data – of minors.

The text of the Brazilian General Data Protection Law (LGPD),[11] recently approved unanimously in congress after almost 10 years of discussions and two years of proceedings, has undergone major changes due to the vetoes of former president Michel Temer at the time of its sanction and more recently by President Jair Bolsonaro. The changes to the text of the LGPD through Provisional Measure 869/2018[12] have resulted in the impairment of the effectiveness of the law as well as a series of setbacks. These setbacks have ignored issues considered already decided on in discussions that had popular participation, as well as the input of members of the executive and legislative branches. As argued in a report released by the joint committee set up to investigate the possible impacts caused by the Provisional Measure,[13] the revised act put at risk the effectiveness of the guarantees reached by the previous text.

The public sector, especially the police authorities, are using new technologies to monitor the population without the social consequences being considered or even measured. The adoption of facial recognition systems for public security purposes is already a reality in several Brazilian cities. Recently, the increase in the use of the tool in public and private spheres has led to the establishment of Civil Public Inquiry No. 08190.052289/18-94[14] by the Personal Data Protection Commission of the Public Prosecutor's Office of the Federal District and Territories (MPDFT), as well as a public hearing held on 16 April 2019.[15] The hearing sought not only to promote debates about the use of facial recognition tools by businesses and the government, but also to function as an open space for the participation of NGOs and civil society.

It is important to remember that as systems are being implemented in public schools around the country, much of the peripheral and vulnerable population is being registered in this "experiment" – that is, data is being collected on vulnerable and marginalised groups. As researchers have pointed out, biases are being increasingly incorporated into the variety of new technological tools.[16] These digital tools can act more quickly, on a larger scale, and with actions that can be hidden by a greater complexity, such as, for example, through profiling systems that use biased machine learning algorithms that police, profile and punish minorities. The struggle is still against the perpetuation of the same problem: the deprivation of civil rights of certain groups of society as a result of social inequalities and power relations in society.

It is not uncommon for technology to be used in a way in Brazil that suggests the possibility of a future Orwellian dystopia. The use of facial recognition technology during the Carnival of 2019 in the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Salvador, resulting in a number of arrests, drew the attention of Brazilians.[17] The apparent relativism of fundamental rights and the relaxation of laws that limit surveillance due to the magnitude of events,[18] and the lack of official information on the effectiveness of the new automated measures, as well as on the storage and sharing of biometric data, were just some of the various problems identified.

The need to manage large events with thousands of participants is not the only reason why surveillance technologies are used in Brazilian urban centres. As Marcelo Souza from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) explains,[19] the increase in punitive policies and the militarisation of the police are the main reasons behind the increasing use of dystopian and invasive AI devices and technologies, typical of combat zones.[20] Even after a series of changes that have taken place in Brazil since the promulgation of the 1988 Constitution, public security institutions have not been significantly modified. The culture of war against the "internal enemy", for example, remains as present as in the days of the military dictatorship.[21]

Given that the recently approved LGPD does not apply to data processing for public security purposes, it would be possible for authorities to argue that the biometric database from the facial recognition system in schools can be used to identify suspects and improve public security. This would place its use even further outside the remit of current legislation. As the LGPD states, data processing for public security purposes "shall be governed by specific legislation, which shall provide for proportionate and strictly necessary measures to serve the public interest" (Article 4, III, § 1, LGPD).[22]

However, a specific law does not exist so far. According to the Brazilian lawyer and privacy advocate Rafael Zanatta,[23] the civic battle in Brazil will be around the shared definition of "proportional measures" and "public interest”. The solution proposed by some researchers and activists for the time being is the protection offered by the constitution, such as the presumption of innocence, and the general principles of the LGPD itself, which guard against the improper use of collected data. On the other hand, it is believed that a tremendous effort will be needed to consolidate jurisprudence where these principles are applied in cases of state surveillance.

There is also a lack of easy access to public documents and information on the use of surveillance technologies. Often information related to the operation of these technologies depends on ad hoc statements made by public agents or private companies, whistleblowers or, when granted, requests for access to public information made possible by the Access to Information Law (LAI).

The discussion on the regulation of AI systems in Brazil is still very new. According to Brazilian researchers Bruno Bioni and Mariana Rielli,[24] the general debate on data protection around the globe has different degrees of maturity depending on the region and the specific issues faced. In addition, a paradigm shift has been observed through the transition from a focus on the individual's right to self-determination with regards to his or her private information to a model of risk prevention and management with respect to data-processing activities.

However, the use of AI for the collection and processing of sensitive personal data, such as the biometric data in question, makes these risks difficult to measure. In part this is because the general population does not have sufficient knowledge of the technology to recognise the extent of its impact on their personal lives.

In this way, an imbalance of power with regard to public awareness and the use of the technology has been created in Brazil.

The need for impact reports on the protection of personal data is an important requirement that has been gaining prominence in legislation, such as European legislation and the recently approved LGPD. However, Bioni and Rielli draw attention to the few requirements placed on developers of AI technologies in Brazil, as well as on the consumer who buys and implements the technology. In particular, there is no law in relation to the purchase and use of facial recognition devices for public service and public safety purposes in Brazil, unlike similar public projects elsewhere that seek an informed public debate and the inclusion of citizens' interests in decision-making processes (e.g. the ordinance on the acquisition of surveillance technology recently adopted in San Francisco, in the United States).[25]

Conclusion

A decrease in school drop-out rates: this is the main advantage of facial recognition technology in schools, according to the company that has developed the technology. But are we assigning to technology something that would be the responsibility of society and the state?

As the Brazilian educator and philosopher Paulo Freire[26] showed, many of the most common practices in the Brazilian educational system are dictated by the Brazilian elite. This includes the use of educational content that does not correspond to the reality of students from lower classes, but instead inhibits their ability to think critically of their reality, and in the end discourages them from attending school.

Easy and safe access to school is also an important consideration impacting on the student's educational performance. The Brazilian Statute of the Child and Adolescent, in chapter IV, art. 53, inc. V,[27] states that one of the rights of the child and adolescent is access to public and free schools near his or her home. However, when distance is not an impediment to school attendance, issues related to the safety of the student's route to school should also be considered. For example, in some communities in Rio de Janeiro,[28] there are frequent incidents of armed confrontation between police and drug traffickers, visible abuses of power by the authorities, stray bullets and other incidents endangering the lives of passers-by, and even street executions, all of which are daily threats to residents. In addition, the reality faced by marginalised populations in Brazil raises another important question: the need for children and adolescents from low-income families to leave school in order to work and help support the household.

The problem of the school drop-out rate in Brazil is neither a new issue nor something that can be solved only with the implementation of a new school attendance system using AI. It is necessary for society to seek more meaningful ways to mitigate the present crisis facing the educational system.

In addition to projects that raise public awareness about issues related to new technologies in Brazilian urban centres, there is also a need to strengthen legislation that governs how sensitive data is shared and used in public projects in order to maintain the quality of public services. When the fundamental rights and guarantees of citizens are understood and respected, a relationship of trust is established.

Cities in Brazil should strengthen privacy protection instruments and create legal certainty through the establishment of fundamental principles, rights and duties for the operation of an ever-changing array of technologies in society. Regulating the use of personal data in the public sphere has the power to promote the conscious, transparent and legitimate use of this information.

Action steps

The following advocacy priorities are suggested for Brazil:

  • Formulate regional policies and strategies for the use of AI in Latin America and the Caribbean.
  • Develop legally enforceable safeguards, including robust transparency and accountability measures, before any facial recognition technology is deployed.
  • Promote national campaigns and public debate over surveillance technology given the impact such technologies may have on civil rights and civil liberties.
  • Include a social, cultural and political understanding of the needs of vulnerable groups in the country's education strategies to make the learning environment more attractive for these groups.
  • Develop open source AI systems that enable wider community use, with appropriate privacy protections.

Challenges for activists pushing for an ethical approach to AI in Italy

Introduction

Italy is the second biggest manufacturing country after Germany in the European Union (EU), and one of the main university and research centres. Because of this, the use and application of artificial intelligence (AI) in the country has advanced and spread. While this is most notable in robotics applied to the industrial sector, there are a number of experimental projects using AI in the country, including in the media sector. Recently, another area that has been developing fast has to do with building so-called “smart cities”, with a vast number of start-ups specialised in making services more accessible to citizens in various fields (health, education, social assistance, unemployment benefits, etc.). There is also strong and lively research activity on the ethical consequences of AI, including decision-making processes assisted by AI, and on related issues such as the regulation and self-regulation of media and social media, especially in the context of elections, hate speech, fake news, and child protection online.

Governments in the country, over the years, have had different approaches to and interest in AI. The centre-left government that was in power from 2013 until the beginning of 2018 was pushing hard (both in the country and in international forums such as the G7) to develop common policies on AI. In 2017, the Ministry of Economic Development launched a special fund (called “Industria 4.0”) to finance the introduction of AI and digital innovation in the traditional industrial sectors.[2] The plan was a huge success, and increased investment, especially in the automotive industry, but also in the pharmaceutical and energy sectors.[3]

Outlining some AI initiatives in the media sector in Italy, this report argues that the current political climate in the country and a fragmented civil society are making the ethical regulation of AI very difficult. It nevertheless identifies two potential policy windows for activists to push for a human-rights approach to AI implementation.

Laboratories for innovation in the media sector

In Italy, AI applications in general (and particularly in the media sector) have been mainly developed in areas where there are a lot of repetitive tasks and where using a human for a task adds little value to the job at hand. The two AI-based services of particular social relevance in the media sector have been developed in the areas of increasing accessibility for people with disabilities and the automatic archiving of digital multimedia files.[4]

For example, Radiotelevisione Italiana (RAI, the national public service media), through its research centre based in Turin (CRITS), is working on numerous AI applications aimed at making accessible radio and TV programmes for the elderly and people with disabilities. This work is the result of a new 2018-2027 framework agreement between the government and RAI, which aims to increase the percentage of programmes for people who are hard of hearing and those with reduced vision, and even deaf and blind people.[5]

RAI has developed three prototypes for new services based on AI that are now in the testing phase: Virtual LIS (short for Lingua dei Segni Italiana, Italian Sign Language), a virtual weather forecast using LIS, and Stretch TV.

Virtual LIS is a system that automatically converts voice audio into sign language using a 3D virtual interpreter. The first tests using LIS have been for weather forecasts.

Stretch TV is a system that can slow down the speed of TV programmes – both images and audio – by 10% to 20%, so that even the hard-of-hearing can easily follow dialogue. As part of EU-funded projects, RAI has also developed an archiving system for video and film using AI.[6]

There are many of these kinds of activities in the country, often implemented as part of EU research consortia.

One particularly interesting project involving media research is called “Femicide Storytelling”, run by the University of Turin (within the PRIN project).[7] Using AI, the project gathers data on cases of femicide and violence against women that are reported in newspapers and on radio and TV. These are then categorised and mapped against existing socio-demographic data in order to create a framework for predicting crimes against women. This is one of the most advanced experiments in big data in the country. While preventing crimes against women, it can be used to raise public awareness, and produce meaningful stories with a social impact.[8]

The most important EU project currently ongoing in the country is SoBigData, of which the Istituto Superiore Sant’Anna, based in Pisa, is one of the major actors and coordinators.[9] This project also has applications in the field of media research, particularly online.

The idea behind the project is very simple: according to the dominant narrative, big data is the oil of future growth. According to the research project, this narrative is true, but is currently being undermined by the misappropriation of personal data by some big companies that use personal data to make profits.

SoBigData proposes to create the “Social Mining and Big Data Ecosystem”, a research infrastructure that would allow the use of data in a protected environment, and on a collaborative basis, aiming to create a totally new approach to the use of big data. The aim of the project is to create a research community that could use the research infrastructure as a “secure digital wind-tunnel” for large-scale “social data analysis and simulation experiments.” Establishing common ethical principles on the use of algorithms, AI and big data is the pre-condition of making such an ecosystem workable, reliable and sustainable.

The areas of potential applications are enormous. The project has identified some of them: from smart cities to health, from media and understanding the influence of social media, to migration, to sports. For instance, the consortium has produced an analysis of mobility within a metropolitan area and even a map of accessibility for people in wheelchairs for a town, based on the data collected through an app for mobile phones. Another ongoing test involves the correlation between the use of social media and the polarisation of political and societal debates (analysed through algorithms checking and monitoring social media debates). The consortium publishes a newsletter presenting some of its experiments and achievements.[10]

The context for policy advocacy on AI

Italy is a country where the debate about social media and its misuse (hate speech, discrimination, sexual harassment and so on) has been widespread in media and society for many years. The proliferation of local media (radio and TV) in the last decades of the 20th century has raised awareness of media-related issues and led to the establishment of specific jurisprudence, as well as a media-related authority set up in 1987. The Autorità per le Garanzie nelle Comunicazioni (AGCOM, the Authority for the Control of Media) is a multisectoral authority, now with a very broad mandate: it is in charge of regulating printed media, electronic media, telecoms and (by extension) social media.

In an already highly regulated media ecosystem, the arrival of social media was nevertheless a shock, because some of the protections previously ensured by the traditional media regulations proved to be inefficient when it came to the new online forms of communication. As a result, calls to regulate social media came from various sectors (the judiciary, human rights activists, the media, etc.) – calls that the two parties governing the country in a coalition since June 2018 have not supported at all.

On the contrary, the Five Star Movement, led by comedian Beppe Grillo, and the League, led by Matteo Salvini – the two political parties forming the government that collapsed at the end of August 2019 – have based a lot of their success on the use of social media. For example, Salvini, whose Facebook page has more than 3.75 million fans, prefers to talk to his supporters live on Facebook instead of going into Parliament, holding press conferences or being interviewed on TV.[11]

The Five Star Movement makes most of its decisions using a voting platform called Rousseau,[12] where registered members are called to vote on the selection of candidates for elections, on main legislative proposals and even on internal reform of the party’s bylaws.[13]

Consequently, both parties had no great interest to intervene on the matter of the regulation of the internet, because they position themselves as anti-establishment forces, and consider traditional media to be controlled by the main economic and political interest groups in the country. This refusal, however, creates a growing tension between government, civil society, opposition parties and traditional media, but also within civil society, and the same two ruling parties.

This also makes pushing for the ethical regulation of AI difficult in the country. Nevertheless, two potential policy windows remain.

Policy windows to advocate for the ethical regulation of AI

The push for regulating social media

Despite the government's reluctance to regulate social media, civil society pressured AGCOM to approve a proposed regulation against online hate speech on 15 May 2019. The proposed regulation is called the “Regolamento recante disposizioni in materia di rispetto della dignità umana e del principio di non discriminazione e di contrasto all’hate speech” (Regulation containing provisions regarding respect for human dignity and the principle of non-discrimination and combatting hate speech).[14]

In Article 9 of the Regulation, AGCOM requires that internet platforms distributing video content:

  • Adopt, publish and respect formal codes of self-regulation in which they commit themselves to remove hate speech content and other content violating human rights online.
  • Provide quarterly monitoring reports on content identified, removed and penalised.
  • Launch awareness campaigns among their users to promote diversity and to fight any kind of online discrimination.

The regulation was submitted for public consultation before it was adopted. Some of the consulted entities have argued that the media and telecom authority has no mandate to regulate (or even co-regulate) social media and the internet. AGCOM has submitted the proposed regulation officially to the Italian Parliament, which will now have to decide whether to enshrine the regulation as law and formally confirm AGCOM's de facto mandate on social media.[15]

This proposal potentially opens up the door for further public discussion on ethical principles with respect to the use and implementation of AI online.

The multistakeholder roundtable

Another potential avenue where activists could push for the regulation of AI is in a multistakeholder roundtable set up by AGCOM, which contributed to the development of the regulation approved in May. In November 2017, AGCOM created the roundtable in an attempt to guarantee pluralism and to ensure reliable news on digital platforms.[16] This informal, voluntary group has grown over the years, and today gathers around 30 companies, including Google, Facebook and Wikipedia (Twitter has not joined the roundtable yet), institutions and civil society organisations. The job of the roundtable is to come up with solutions to problems that are raised, based on in-depth research and knowledge of the Italian media market.[17]

Since January 2019, it has produced a regular newsletter (called the Observatory on Online Disinformation) and all relevant communication between the authority and the parties involved, such as an internet platform, are discussed publicly and published on its website. For instance, in March 2018 the secretariat of the roundtable addressed a detailed request for explanations from Facebook on the impact of the Cambridge Analytica case in Italy. Another area of concern is the impact of fake news and hate speech on the online world.

During the campaigns for the Italian national elections in March 2018 and for European elections in May 2019, the roundtable agreed on a special strategy to counter possible cyber interference,[18] while some guidelines to guarantee equal access for all candidates to the online platforms were issued.[19]

Conclusion

In the current political turmoil through which Italy is passing, civil society organisations are in a trap. On the one hand they are very involved with institutions in the debate about AI and algorithms, on their implications for society (as seen in some of the projects discussed here) and in the development of regulations. On the other hand, they are paralysed in their advocacy because criticism of how internet platforms operate is considered as an attack on both of the ruling parties (the Five Star Movement and the League), both of which use the internet as a bedrock for their campaigns, including in their attacks on traditional media.

Civil society in Italy is also currently fragmented, with different groups concentrating on their own problems: political parties are worried about trolls and elections; feminist movements are worried about femicide; the child protection movement is worried about the risks of social media for children; minorities and refugee organisations are worried about hate speech and its consequences for their constituencies.

Nevertheless, two avenues for pushing for regulations on AI remain: the current advocacy for the regulation of hate speech online, and the multistakeholder roundtable set up by AGCOM.

A further policy window has presented itself with the sudden and unexpected collapse in August 2019 of the populist and right-wing parties that make up the current government. This has ushered in a change of alliances (now populist and left-wing parties), and opened up new perspectives for civil society activism, and for the Parliament. However, what exactly these advocacy opportunities will be is still too early to predict.

Action steps

If the fragmented civil society movement is able to free itself from its current paralysis, then a lot could be achieved with respect to AI. They need to collectively start to push for ethical principles to be incorporated into AI, such as privacy by design in the algorithms that are developed. This could be a successful way to unify movements that at the moment are not cooperating and are working separately, focused on their own battles. In this sense, the Italian tradition of fighting for civil liberties – which resulted in a very detailed and in-depth juridical framework and a modern constitution – could contribute significantly to the European and global debate on AI.

Agricultural cropland extent and areas of South Asia derived using Landsat satellite 30-m time-series big-data using random forest machine learning algorithms on the Google Earth Engine cloud

 Cache   
The South Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bhutan) has a staggering 900 million people (~43% of the population) who face food insecurity or severe food insecurity as per United Nations, Food and Agriculture Organization’s (FAO) the Food Insecurity Experience Scale (FIES). The existing coarse-resolution (>250-m) cropland maps lack precision in geo-location of individual farms and have low map accuracies. This also results in uncertainties in cropland areas calculated from such products. Thereby, the overarching goal of this study was to develop high spatial resolution (30-m or better) baseline cropland extent product of South Asia for the year 2015 using Landsat satellite time-series big-data and machine learning algorithms (MLAs) on the Google Earth Engine (GEE) cloud computing platform. To eliminate the impact of clouds, ten time-composited Landsat bands (blue, green, red, NIR, SWIR1, SWIR2, Thermal, EVI, NDVI, NDWI) were derived for each of the 3 time-periods over 12 months (monsoon: Julian days 151-300; winter: Julian days 301-365 plus 1-60; and summer: Julian days 61-150), taking the every 8-day data from Landsat-8 and 7 for the years 2013-2015, for a total of 30-bands plus global digital elevation model (GDEM) derived slope band. This 31-band mega-file big data-cube was composed for each of the 5 agro-ecological zones (AEZ’s) of South Asia and formed a baseline data for image classification and analysis. Knowledge-base for the Random Forest (RF) MLAs were developed using spatially well spread-out reference training data (N=2179) in 5 AEZs. Classification was performed on GEE for each of the 5 AEZs using well-established knowledge-based and RF MLAs on the cloud. Map accuracies were measured using independent validation data (N=1185). The survey showed that the South Asia cropland product had a producer’s accuracy of 89.9% (errors of omissions of 10.1%), user’s accuracy of 95.3% (errors of commission of 4.7%) and an overall accuracy of 88.7%. The National and sub-national (districts) areas computed from this cropland extent product explained 80-96% variability when compared with the National statistics of the South Asian Countries. The full resolution imagery can be viewed at full-resolution, by zooming-in to any location in South Asia or the world, at www.croplands.org and the cropland products of South Asia downloaded from The Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC) of National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the United States Geological Survey (USGS): https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/products/gfsad30saafgircev001/

GTA³ 3.0: The 3rd workshop on Graph Techniques for Adversarial Activity Analytics

 Cache   
<p>December 9th, 2019 | Westin Bonaventure - Los Angeles, CA</p> <p><i>For past GTA<sup>3</sup> workshops, please visit our archive page.</i></p> <p><strong>Theme &amp; Purpose</strong></p> <p>Networks are natural analytic tools in modeling adversarial activities (e.g., smuggling, illegal arms dealing, illicit drug production) in different contexts. However, such activities are often covert and embedded across multiple domains. They are generally not detectable and recognizable from the perspective of an isolated network, and only become apparent when multiple networks are analyzed in a joint manner. Thus, one of the main research topics in modeling adversarial activities is to develop effective techniques to align and fuse information from different networks into a unified representation for global analysis. Based on the combined network representation, an equally important research topic is on detecting and matching indicating patterns to recognize the underlining adversarial activities in the integrated network.</p> <p>Two key challenge problems involved in the modeling process include:</p> <ul> <li>Network alignment and merging: develop <em>accurate</em> and <em>scalable</em> methods for mapping of nodes across heterogeneous networks based on various associational and causal dependencies.</li> <li>Sub-graph detection and matching: develop <em>robust</em> and <em>efficient</em> algorithms for richly attributed networks to support detection and recognition of complex query patterns for networks.</li> </ul> <p>The focus of this workshop is to gather together the researchers from all relevant fields to share their experience and opinions on addressing the two <em>fundamental graph mining problems</em> – “Connecting the dots” and “Finding a needle in a haystack”, in the context of adversarial activity analytics.</p> <p>In addition, this workshop also aims to provide a forum for discussing research challenges and novel approaches in synthesizing realistic networks that those observed in the real-worlds. Numerous approaches have been proposed in the past for generating networks (e.g., exponential random graphs, stochastic Kronecker graphs). However, few research has been conducted on systematically injecting and embedding subtle signals (e.g., covert activities) to these “background” networks. In addition, new methods for generating synthetic data in other domains (e.g., Computer Vision) with deep generative models (e.g., Variational Autoencoders, Generative Adversarial Networks) have grown in prominence. Naturally, the question arises as to whether these new methods can be adapted to the graph domains and how they compare in capability to the current state-of-the-art.</p> <p><strong>Topics of Interest</strong></p> <ul> <li>Novel graph generation and synthesizing techniques (e.g., static, dynamic networks)</li> <li>Network alignment and data integration from multiple heterogeneous domains</li> <li>Novel algorithms for sub-graph detection and matching in large networks</li> <li>Limits of detectability and identifiability</li> <li>Complex anomaly (e.g., group anomaly) detection and interpretation</li> <li>Novel evaluation metrics for network generation, alignment and detection.</li> <li>Identification of novel network datasets</li> <li>Multilayer and multiplex network analytics</li> <li>Clustering and ranking methods for composite networks</li> <li>Large-scaled link prediction and recommendation algorithms</li> <li>Community detection in big networks</li> <li>Information diffusion and influence maximization</li> <li>Game theoretic approach on anticipating opponent intent and actions</li> <li>Interactive visualization for big graphs</li> <li>New methods and frontiers in spectral graph theory</li> <li>Analysis of network topologies (e.g., centrality and network motif analysis)</li> <li>Semi-supervised learning, Transductive inference, Active learning, and Transfer learning in the graph context</li> </ul> <p>This workshop (co-located with the 2019 IEEE International Conference on Big Data) aims to bring together a cross-disciplinary audience of researchers from both academia and industry to share experience techniques, resources and best practices, and to exchange perspectives and future directions.

España atrae al 13% de los turistas de lujo frente al 30% de Francia

 Cache   

Pese a los avances logrados en los últimos años, España no es todavía un destino de referencia para los turistas de alto poder adquisitivo. Solo atrae al 13% de estos viajeros frente a países como Francia, Reino Unido e Italia, que superan el 30%, de acuerdo con el informe ‘El turista de lujo en España ¿un desconocido?’ elaborado por el operador internacional de tax free Global Blue.


Con cerca de 83 millones de turistas internacionales recibidos en 2018, España es la segunda potencia turística del mundo, detrás de Francia, pero ocupa la séptima posición en la clasificación de los principales países receptores de viajeros de alto poder adquisitivo, según destacó ayer en Madrid Jacques Stern, CEO de Global Blue. Presentó el citado informe en la jornada sobre el sector del lujo “Excellence Day de Círculo Fortuny, que esta ocasión se llevó a cabo bajo el lema "Excelencia, artesanía y cultura, principales motores del turismo de élite".

La clasificación liderada por Francia, que capta un 36% de estos viajeros, seguida de Reino Unido e Italia, ambos destinos con un 31%.

Los turistas de alto poder adquisitivo suponen solo el 0,5% del total, pero concentran el 17% de las ventas tax free que se realizan en los comercios. Sin embargo, en nuestro país su gasto es hasta un 62% inferior en comparación con otros destinos de nuestro entorno

España capta el 37% del presupuesto de los citados viajeros, con un gasto medio de 22.000 euros, mientras en países como el Reino Unido alcanza el 60%, donde su desembolso llega a los 35.000 euros de media en compras.

El Círculo Fortuny celebró ayer una jornada sobre turismo de lujo en la Real Academia de San Fernando, en Madrid, en la que el CEO de Global Blue Jacques Stern, presentó el último estudio sobre compras tax free de su compañía.

El directivo destacó la importancia de conocer a este viajero, sus preferencias, motivaciones y hábitos para adaptar la oferta a sus objetivos, generar una mayor predisposición al gasto y mejorar su experiencia, ya que, "además, de atraerles, hay que retenerles y darles el tratamiento de un viajero Vip", sentenció.

Un proceso en el que "el big data, que es el presente, no el futuro, es muy importante", indicó.

Se refirió también a la importancia de impulsar la promoción del destino y mejorar una la conectividad aérea. "Hay que invertir para posicionar a España en el largo plazo", señaló.

El perfil del viajero de alto poder adquisitivo se corresponde con el de una mujer, con frecuencia milenial, procedente de Asia, que viaja entre tres y cuatro veces al año y tiene una estancia de entre cinco y diez días en cada desplazamiento, según se recoge en el estudio.

Su gasto anual se sitúa entre los 50.000 y 210.000 euros, sobre todo en artículos de lujo exclusivos, con predilección por la joyería (45%) y los complementos (32%), bastante más que por la moda (18%).

Por nacionalidades, la China es la que más turistas de lujo aporta a Europa. En España suponen el 39% de los viajeros con mayor capacidad de gasto, a bastante distancia de se encuentran los procedentes de otros mercados del Sudeste Asiático (11%) y del Golfo Pérsico (9%) –en otros países europeos suponen el 15% y el 14% respectivamente-. "Estos países no están suficientemente bien representados en España", afirmó Stern.

Los viajeros de élite chinos suelen tener entre 20 y 30 años, los de Estados Unidos, más de 50, y los de Oriente Medio, entre 35 y 4 años

Mercado ruso

Por otro lado, según explicó el CEO de Global Blue, los viajeros de elite de Rusia y de Latinoamérica representan el 10% y el 8% de las llegadas de los viajeros de con más capacidad de gasto, mientras que a nivel global estas nacionalidades apenas alcanzan el 6% y el 2%, respectivamente.

Craig Peterson
Hey, hello, everybody. Craig Peterson here on the air at WGAN and all over the world on podcasts. You can listen to me by just going to Craig peterson.com slash iTunes that'll bring up the 800-pound gorilla podcast site.

You can also go to Craig Peterson dot com slash iTunes in and listen to my podcasts there, of course, and you can listen on right here to this station also on tune in radio. Additionally, listen to me when I'm on the air, three mornings a week now different stations different coverage. All of those end up on my podcast feed. I appreciate everybody who is going there and giving me a five-star rating. I know there are also a lot of people that are tuning in for the first time. Welcome. Welcome to all of you guys and gals. It is a wonderful, wonderful experience for me because we get new people, and I get to help teach you guys, help you to be able to understand the latest in technology. That's what I talk about every week. I have been in the technology business for many, many decades now. And I am still enjoying it. But you know, it's time for me to start giving back and start trying to help everybody understand what's going on. We spend a lot of time discussing security, what you should do for your home, what you should be doing for your Small Office/Home Office. Many of us, like me, work out of their houses now. That means you have different problems. When we catch China, Russia, and North Korea and then all of the criminal organizations all over the world. We've got all of those people trying to attack us. It gets very, very difficult to keep our data set. safe. And of course also, with all of the new technology, how do you use it? How do you make it work? Just this morning, we were on with a client, and they were meeting this is common, okay. But they were misusing the system that they have in place. They have a system that's in place to allow them to do diagrams, engineering diagrams. And unfortunately, the people they trusted to put it together to configure it, they did not do it anywhere near properly, nothing is SPECT, right, etc. And I know you'd think an engineering firm would understand that the specifications are there for a reason. They're there to be followed, right. And so the system has just been kind of, you know, hack together trying to make this thing work. And there ended up being an air coming up on their screen, and then the Good news, I guess for them is they had us be able to help them because I don't think there's anybody else out there. That is, you know, easy enough to find someone that could help them with this problem because the air looked like it was a licensing problem. The problem was that the database that they were using had lock records on it. Here's how they were using it. They have a database and applications that are running on this underpowered server. They were being accessed remotely by someone using a VPN on a laptop. And you know it all sounds pretty reasonable. The way they were doing it was running the application over on the laptop instead of on the server. So what they should have been doing is using either a virtual machine that that person could Connect remotely or use a terminal server that Microsoft provides. What happens is now he's running the app, the app is accessing the database via the VPN. So far, so good, right? Make sense? This virtual private network is letting his laptop think it's on the corporate network. This company has dozen-plus employees and a server with a database on it. The database is handling all the queries it's going through. Now, when you're talking about databases, I'm trying not to get too technical here, everybody. When you're talking about a database for a program, the database, hopefully, has what is called business rules in it. For instance, if you add a customer, you're not just putting one record in the database, you have a record that gives the basic information about the customer. It includes the name, maybe the address, and then you've got another record that's got the customer contact, who it is. Then there are also records about what they would buy for from us with totals, encounters, and things. It's called D normalizing a database. So all of these different records are created in different tables, maybe even different databases, but it's almost always one database. And so in order to keep all this information properly synchronized, because you don't want to have a record for the company, a business a client, and then have the, the your programs trying to access now how do I get ahold of this client and so it tries to go to the phone number database, so I'm just oversimplifying this slightly. Still, there's no record for the phone number database, you don't want that to happen. So what you do is you use a lock, and the lock helped to enforce these business rules to make sure Hey if I'm creating a new customer, I want to make sure I have their name, their address, the contact that we have. And so a contact record, and the type of company, maybe an inventory item, just in time stuff, whatever it might be, all of that needs to be there in the database. What happens is, there's what's called an atomic transaction. The database program, the software that you're running, identifies the customer contact and his records and returns the records for the company itself, the records for the inventory, and the shipping information records. And then it says, commit this all to the database. At that point, the database already has all of these records and reports it is ready to commit. Everything is there. What was happening with this client is they were on a VPN. And they were running the software over on the laptop. The software on the laptop was saying, Okay, so here's, here's the client we're dealing with, and we've got some new information for them. So let's insert this new information in the database. And so the database does a lock to hold. So we can get a customer number to generate all of this stuff in case somebody else is trying to do it. And then, the VPN connection goes away, or the laptop crashes. Something happens, right? Now, the application could crash crash, and if its on the server, the database could crash on the server, all of that stuff could happen. So when you get right down into it, there are tools to try and recover. But in this case, records were locked. They weren't lost. They were locked. So now when they went back in they were getting in an error message, they really couldn't understand what's going on here. Why? Why am I getting this error? We had to delve into it and contact the app developers and look at the databases, and then we had to remove the locks manually. Now, that's just great. We remove the locks. What that probably means they have a corrupted database, one that was corrupted silently, in a way that no one understands. And in some cases, if it's a real expensive application, it probably has stuff that does continuity checks and makes sure there's congruence between all the records. But that's not the case here. You know what it reminds me I saw the same thing at a doctor's office. They've been using the same software for many, many years. And the software uses a very, very basic database and This database, and I don't even know if I would call it a database, right? But I think of the old retrieve stuff if you're an old-timer like me, and what we used to do with those and which is great because it the beat trivalent, you put data out into files and then allows you to access it very, very quickly. But by today's standards, you would not consider that a database. So over the years, when they had a problem, they would just shut off the computer and then turn it back on, reboot, right. So now we're helping them win factory finish migration of all of their data from this very old it using 30-year-old technology, this ancient system for the doctors practice to a very modern one on Max, and it's cool the stuff they can do. You know, they can immediately while you're sitting there with the doctor, the doctor can check right away, what drugs you're on from other providers because the pharmacy that you use keeps all that information, it's all tied right in real-time. And the doctor can check for possible conflicts of some of these medications and immediately issue the prescription. So it's before you leave your consultation with the doctor. It's all done. It's just amazing for them, and they're having a hard time with some of these concepts. And I get that right. If you're using 30 old 30-year-old design software, which so many people are you know, some of these companies like Kronos, they have some new stuff, but they're selling some stuff that's just decades old. It's just been, you know, modified, modified. And so the basic concepts behind the software aren't there. So they had been turning off their computers. Off and on resetting control, alt, delete, right, all of those things that we've all done before. And their database was as corrupt as can be. And manual processes instead of automated processes to try and get their database up to snuff. So anyways, an engineering firm, we got it taken care of for them. Still, their databases almost certainly got corruptions in it, because they're not doing it as backed by the manufacturer. Right. And you'd think as I said, they know better. And we've got the doctor's office all up and running too. So that's good. So anyway, if you ever want to know a little bit about databases, you just learned it. When we come back. Hey, we're going to be talking about shopping Black Friday, Cyber Monday privacy. That's coming up today, and we're going to talk about Android again, and a whole lot more. Of course, you're listening to Craig Peterson online, Craig Peterson, calm and I'm WGAN

Hello, everybody, Craig heater song here hopefully you're enjoying today's show so far. Let's give a little bit of a rundown of what's coming up. We've got our Black Friday, Cyber Monday shopping information coming right up here shopping and privacy on today's show the number of imposture retailers. It is crucial, and I'm going to help you understand these sites because they are the imposter websites is outnumbering the legitimate websites for retailers and we're getting caught all of the time. We're going to talk a little bit about the IM and MSP shingle to your business security. I saw this again, and some of these ms peas MSS peas are they break from shops is what we call them. In other words, you call them when you have a problem. They're not proactive. But it turns out now not only they're not good at security, but they are a massive target for hackers. We'll talk about how that's a problem for your business and some things you can do about that. Hiring issues. Right now. If you're looking for a job that some of this scam online application stuff with this going on will tell you more targeting and tackling here some ransomware on Windows, which is way way up. Big Data brokers and your information. We talked a little bit last week about what Google's doing with Project Nightingale, which is scary enough, but we're going to get into that.

Facebook is introducing a new payment system. You might remember they were trying to launch this whole cryptocurrency, and it fell flat. Well, we'll talk a little bit about this Calibre wallet that's coming to our way, and cellular throttling and why it cost AT&T a chunk of change. If you use AT&T, you may be getting a check. You will have to fill out some forms. Then I discuss how you can reduce vulnerabilities by ditching Android. It is amazing. There's a study that just came out. And this is an article from Wired magazine that I have up on my website at Craig peterson.com.

Android is not Android is not Android. Every manufacturer has a different version of Android. Now, some of the core modules are the same, but they have to add their device drivers. They typically add bloatware is what we call it to the phones, and of course bloatware, you also see in Windows computers a lot. And those are those ads that come up that lets you get all of these premium features. All you have to do is pay us extra. They're out there doing all of this. And so my warning has always been, if you are considering buying an Android phone, remember that it might only be good for six months. I'm not talking about the hardware; some of the equipment is great. When I say some of the phones only be suitable for six months. It's because the security patches that are going to be needed for your phone will no longer be available. And my accountant came by last week and he just bought a new Android phone I told him don't buy another Android get an apple get an iPhone. If you can't afford a new iPhone by you don't even have to buy us To buy a model or two older iPhone, you will be much much happier and you will be much, much safer. But he got another Android phone. Why did he ask me about or why did he bring up because he knows I'm not an Android fan, right? So. So when we're sitting down, he's, he's not going to be sitting there pulling his phone today, Greg, that's great. No android phone I have because he knows I'm going to be all right. And in this case, it was I bought this phone now a couple of months ago, and I can't get updates for it anymore. Two months, two months, he had that phone, and he couldn't get updates for his Android phone. So it's not even six months in some cases is a lot less than other cases it's longer. If you're going to make the mistake of buying an Android phone, make sure it is the number one model in volume in sales. That manufacturer right now is Samsung. And the goal with that, but here's this story. And I've got some stuff I wrote up about it.

Every android phone is unique. Because the manufacturers can freely create applications, they've got to make changes to the device drivers, the interfaces, the carriers, which then upload their information into the cellular tables that are in it. They might have a different transmitter than was planned for they go for the cheapest, cheapest. And so they've got to rewrite that low part of the operating system completely. You're getting that right now. Well, here's what we have just found. Every Android has pre-installed as of today. Now, remember, I'm saying that some of these phones you can't get security updates after six months and only two months in some cases. Maybe it's a year. But there's a study out right now, that is saying that on average when you buy an Android phone, there are 146 vulnerabilities pre-installed on your phone. So these are bugs in the software that Google has already fixed.
Some of these were zero-day attacks. Many of them weren't. But on average, your new Android phone, according to this study, already has 146 security vulnerabilities before you even open the box. Right. Now, does that make sense to you? Now, if you buy an iPhone, you're going to find that the first thing that you're gonna want to do is you set it up, you put in, your Apple account or you create one they're absolutely free. Apple does not harass you about any of this stuff. They give you iCloud backup automatically. But you're going to set up your iPhone. One of the very first things that it does is it updates itself.


Apple, just with the most recent release of its operating system going to look this up right now. Age of an iPhone six, they just recently stopped supporting their newest operating system that doesn't mean patches for security problems. But their newest operating system does not support the straight-six. It supports the six s but not the straight-six. So I'm looking right now in Wikipedia, and it was released there we go in on 24 14. So right now, while we're talking, it is more than five years old. It's been over five years since it was released. So Apple provided full support soup to nuts support for the software on iPhone sixes for more than five years. And that's very typical for Apple and the iPhones. So if you buy, you can still purchase the six ass I would not personally because it's not going to be fully supported. The next time we come up with another phone, so you know next year or maybe early in 2020. If you are considering buying an iPhone and you want to save some money, you can still buy a seven, or you can always buy an iPhone eight. You can even buy the 10. My mom, who is well into her 80s now, wanted to replace her phone. I think she had an iPhone four and she just last week returned it. I said they go out and buy because she was confused. I said, go out and buy the iPhone XR. That iPhone 10 XR, which she did. It is a great deal. It is a fantastic phone. And it's going to last year another five years with full software support from Apple. So keep that in mind. You can open that brand new box with your Android phone with 146 security bugs in it before you even open it up, and it's not going to update itself to the latest patches. None of that's going to happen. Depending on the phone in the manufacturer. But get an iPhone right forget all of this stuff about Android. I do not sell iPhones I to make money off of iPhones. I do not work for Apple. Okay. My company, however, is a certified Apple authorized Support Center

Hello, everybody, Craig Peterson, here on WGAN live online, you can find me at Craig peterson.com. I often have some of these free pop up pieces of training and I've been doing Facebook Lives lately and just trying to get the word out, helping people understand what is happening in technology today. And we're on show number 1037. Now, the way I number shows is that's actually week number 1037. We should have done some big deal when we hit show 1000 but I, I didn't I probably should have But anyhow, so that's 1037 weeks of being on the air every week, which is pretty amazing when you get down to it and it's thanks for You guys, I so appreciate what you guys do by listening and supporting the stations I'm on and of course listening to the podcast and and the easiest way, by the way if you are an avid listener, if you will, is to go to Craig Peterson comm slash iTunes. And if you wouldn't mind, give me a five-star review and, and let me know what you think of the show right there. And I do read those and a quick shout out to people on the air frequently. I do.

Now, you know, I mentioned a little bit earlier than I do a lot of computer security. And it's a huge deal, and it's very, very difficult. I also mentioned these break-fix shops. Those are businesses that do computer support, but basically, you call them when there's a problem as opposed to them being proactive and taking care of issues for you. Which is what my company and I do alright, so there you go. That's what I do. Well, let's get into this whole MSP thing. I am an MSP RIR, and MSP managed security services provider. And I want to roll the clock back because I have something here that I remember pretty well. And then I want to talk about it because I have a cup of coffee in front of me. And it's sitting on a napkin. And so I want to tell you a little bit of background. And this has to do with experience, really, and knowledge if you're old enough to remember the whole y2k thing. And the biggest problem with y2k was, hey, and we've been writing software for years that rely on next year, being One year more than this year. Back then, we had to be very careful with all of our data and how much storage we were using. Instead of storing the year as we do now as 1975, we would save the year as just 75. Hey, it's not going to matter for another, what, 35 years. Y2k is going to cause the world to come to an end because nothing's going to work. That is, it had only been 50 years that this code. And we all know that there was a whole industry that developed to help companies make sure they are y2k compliant. Some people wrote software that reviewed other software to make sure that these mistakes weren't in it. And then y2k came and went with very, very few incidents.


Now, the reason people were worried about was legitimate. If you had an older GPS this year, say one that was more than five years old, maybe ten years old, you might have noticed that it stopped working? Did you see that? And the reason these things stopped working was the same problem everybody was worried about and y2k while almost the same problem. And that is counters rolled over from the GPS satellites. If you didn't have a big enough counter on your GPS receiver, you were in big trouble. The satellites themselves were fine. It was your little GPS receiver that's built into your navigation system, right.


Huge deal. You had to buy a new one. Well, it's a much bigger deal for the bank, but thinking what else was happening around the year 2000. I started building commercial internet properties as soon as it became legal because I'd been on the internet since the early 1980s. I've been designing and helping to design and implement internet solutions since the early 1980s. And I've been doing network work, and computer network works professionally since 1975. I've been doing security work, managed security for my clients since the early 1990s. There was a lot of work done out there. I go back now and think about the late 1990s. My coffee mug is sitting here on a napkin. And you know, you go to a coffee shop, the napkins are three by three inches square, give or take. And if you are getting a muffin, you might get a napkin that you could unroll, and that's maybe what eight and a half by 11. Give or take, right? It's pretty big. Well, in the mid to late '90s, people were going to specific coffee shops. I remember this so well out in Silicon Valley in California. They went to these p coffee shops because it was where angels hung out. Angels are people who if you don't know, invest money in early-stage startups, in other words, when a company is first going, and so if I were today to talk to an angel and say, Hey, I need some money, the angel would say, Okay, well, let's look at the business plan. We go through all the financials, I better have some customers already some sort of a proof of concept, minimum viable product that I can show them and say, yeah, look at this is looking really good. So I need 1,000,005 million to take this to the next level. Well, back then, in the late 90s. They would sit and have coffee with one of these angel investors. And they'd say, hey, I've got an idea for a business and they pull out a napkin. And they take a, pencil and they would sketch on the back of that napkin. What their idea why it's because it's going to be great. And the investors just based on that napkin, no product, no team, nothing but an idea. Based on that napkin, the investors were giving out five and $10 million checks to these people who, in my mind, were, were, fraudsters. You know, they convince themselves that they had the best idea in the world, and they were going to become the next billionaire. Maybe the first billionaire under 20 years old. A lot of these investors, Of course, we're a little older, and they didn't know how to deal with the internet. They didn't know much about it and very immature back in the late 90s. Although I'd already been on it for 30 years, well, you know, around it for 30 years and on for more than 20 then, so they were giving them crazy money just based on a napkin. So what does everybody do? Well, where's the money while the money is on the internet, and it's out in the Bay Area of San Francisco, San Jose. So I'm going to go out there. And some of these people, literally, I knew people that did this, they hopped on an airplane. They flew out to San Jose, with the intent of going to one of these coffee shops or about a half a dozen of them, that were known to be frequented by angel investors and venture capitalists. And it's kind of like somebody flying to LA Working Yeah, I'm an actor, and they're working in a coffee shop. And they're Bariza hoping to get spotted by that director to get their big break. A big problem. And because everybody saw that the internet was the place to be. Everybody hung up a shingle about the internet. So stick around. We're going to talk more about this. We're going to tie this into exactly what's happening today, to you to your business, when it comes to security. And so many of these firms that are out there right now trying to sell you stuff. So stick around. We'll be right back.

You're listening to Craig Peterson, right here on WGAN and online pretty much everywhere and at Craig peterson.com stick around. We'll be right back.

Hello, everybody, welcome back, Craig beater song here. Of course, we're on WGA. And we are online, Craig Peterson calm. And good news. I'm on pretty much every podcasting platform out there. And I've had more than 20 million podcast downloads since I started podcasting 15 years. The numbers are picking up. We just had got another 100,000 downloads recently. I'm pretty jazzed with that. It is all because of you guys. The more you are of you who subscribe to my podcast, the more it gets noticed, and the more people hear about it, and of course, then what that means is, we're able to help more people, and that's why I'm here. It is a labor of love. Alright, so let's get into the rest of the story from what I was talking about earlier, which is if you missed it, I talked a little bit about the history of the internet and internet investment. These companies that were spun up from a business plan that was nothing more than a rough sketch on the back of a napkin at a coffee shop. Okay. It's a big deal here. But we'll let's think about some of the biggest failures on the internet. And you've heard of some of these. You've probably heard of like pets.com let me just run through a few here. Ship raise 62 million dollars and failed. That's SHYPBP raised 149 million before they got wiped out. Juicer, all Yeah, that's a reasonably recent one 118.5 million pepper tap 51 million Sprague 56 million yak yak 73 million. And you can go online, look for some of these things. I found an article that had 323, startup failures, and post-mortems for all of them going back, just kind of way back. But, you know, back to 2014, which isn't the start of the internet, right. That's not the reach. The time we're talking. Okay. Timo meter, and this is a great one, by the way. Multiply $30 times one client times 24 months. Wow, we'll be rich. Okay. They got funding, right. Why didn't we get funding? Why didn't you get funding right with your great idea? So everybody started throwing their hat into the ring. They were going to these coffee shops out in Silicon Valley pitching and hopefully come with a good idea.

Of course, the investors wanted to have a billion-dollar company. Hey, it's not so bad. I put, you know, 5 -10 million in and I'm able to take a billion dollars out with a big company that's got a 5 billion valuation right. Wow, we're all going to be rich. And of course, that is the extremely rare case. So let's fast forward to today. And talk a little bit about what's happening right now. I've got an article up on my website that we put together called "I am an MSP shingle and your business security." Think of that word shingle. We talked about all of these. I don't know what to call these people, because they were out trying to get money for their ideas and were quite convincing. They weren't thieves, necessarily, although some of them probably were. But they didn't know any better. They didn't know what they should have known. Today, of course, the internet's much more mature. It's still not fully mature. It's changing every day, the way things are sold and marketed and used, and everything on the internet is just constant change. But right now, what are we talked about on this show before when it comes to open jobs, we know that the economy pretty much has full employment. But for the past three years, I think ever started ever since I started running the webinars for the FBI info guard program, ever since I started running those. There's indeed been somewhere between one and a half and 3 million open cybersecurity jobs. So Let's get right down to the economics of all of this. And I, I was following some stuff, and I've been developing material carefully in the industry because this is kind of the industry that I'm in. And I found out something that I thought was just kind of a DA moment, right? That's when you hear something, and it's I should have thought of that. I don't know why I didn't think of that. Right. We all have those. And so I had this moment, which is, if you have been a break-fix shop of what you've been doing is you take a call from somebody, and you sell them a computer, or you g a call from somebody, and you go out, and you spend two hours with them and you charge them three or 400 bucks for that service call. First of all, I don't think that serves the customer very well because the customer is going to be worried about calling you and the poor person that's having the problem doesn't want the boss to get upset because they called you right? So that's not helping the business very much. And on the other side, if you're trying to sell hardware nowadays, you know, we'll sell someone at $3,000 $4,000. workstation for one of their employees to use not even a high end one. And our margin is like 50 bucks on it. Nowadays. It obviously depends on the manufacturer, but there's like no margin in that business anymore. So if you were faced with that, if you owned a company, that all they really did was they sold some computer hardware when there was a refresh. And you went out and you did some repairs and some telephone support. And what would you be thinking? Why are retailers closing on you're basically a retailer? That's the business you're in. You're competing against Amazon, you're competing against Dell online, you're competing against all these guys. So what I've noticed happening, and I've noticed it because my company is what's called a master managed security services provider. We're a master security services provider because we work with these smaller companies that don't have the security expertise, and they know it.

Now there, there's a lot of people that don't know it. We just talked about all of these failures. Back in the boom days of the internet, hundreds of millions of dollars, billions just went down the drain. So some of these people think they know enough, but they don't. So they'll come to somebody like us, who is a master managed security services provider, and we'll be the people behind the scenes designing the networks and security infrastructure. They can meet the DFARS requirements or ITAR or HIPAA or PCI or some of them, many, many TLA's and FLA's out there, right. TLA is is a three-letter acronym, and an FLA is a four-letter acronym. So in business, we all have those. But that's what they'll do. Now, I got to tell you, the vast majority and I'm going to say 99% from my personal experience. And so I don't know what the real numbers are. I don't think anybody has the actual numbers for this. But, and I'm going to say 99% because I have never seen an exception to this rule. But 99% of these companies out there don't know enough to make the right decisions or to help the customer make the right decisions when it comes to security. Now, this presents a huge problem for everybody. Because we have all of these people who were PC repairs and Windows support people, these companies relied on Windows coming out with a new version from Microsoft. And it will work on your old hardware because you need more memory, you need more space on your desk, you need to have a faster computer to run Windows eight, right? And then Windows 10 comes out. And a lot of people what they've done over the years is they say, you know, my machine is old, it's slow. It's cluttered. I could probably reload windows and get my speed back. But I just assumed by new computer, and that's what these people relied on for literally a couple of decades here. You are in the crosshairs of hackers if you're a business and even if you're just a regular home user. Oh my gosh, the problems you guys all have because now the hackers have figured out that these companies that call themselves managed services providers, but don't have enough knowledge about security, to protect even themselves adequately. These so-called managed services providers have now become a significant target for the hackers, including nation-state, think about it for a second. If you've hired a managed soft or managed services company of some sort, you've given them access to all of your computers, and they probably have your passwords, right? They have all of this stuff. There is an attack going on right now against Connect wise and directly against Ms. Peas. They've scanned the internet to find anybody that mentions MSP on their website, and then they start attacking them. Cause they have the keys to the kingdom, your kingdom. So here's the advice to minimize your risk.

We had two weeks ago an attack that hit an IT services firm Everest, which is a subsidiary of NTT, one of the largest MSP is in Spain. They had to shut everything down, cut network links, try and figure out what happened. And in this case, it was ransomware. But they're also going straight for the data. It's happening every day. Okay, this is one of the largest, so yeah, my gosh, Here's what you have to do. You have to treat your managed security services provider as an insider risk. Just like any employee, you have your own IT staff. They are a risk to your business. They have access to All of your intellectual property, your client lists your employee records, right? They have access to all of it. So treat them like an insider. Understand the risks, do not let them keep your passwords or other information. And what we do for our clients is we never keep them. We cannot tell you what your password is, and we have to reset it. And we use specialized software, that when we access one of our client's computers, it keeps track of the right passwords and those are changed frequently and can be changed. Every time a technician connects, it is a huge deal, there you go. Some people are hanging out their shingle, saying I'm an MSP. Be very careful if you treat them like an insider, and mitigate your risks. All right, when we come back, by the way, in the next hour, we're going to be talking about online shopping. You're listening to print Peterson on WGAN.

Hey, hello everybody, Craig Peterson here on WGAN online at Craig peterson.com. I appreciate everybody being with us today. We went through a bunch of stuff in the last hour. And we talked about, you know, MSP insider threats a little bit. I want to finish up the whole thing about insider threats. People have been asking if they should treat any managed services provider, break-fix shop, or any third party who is taking care of our computer equipment as an insider with a potential insider threat. So how do we treat insiders and this whole insider threat thing? Well, I should do a training on this up pop-up training.

The veryfirst thing you have to do is figure out what is your most valuable asset in your business. Now, for most of us, it's our intellectual property. Frankly, those are our plans, our designs, our engineering diagrams, and it's our money, you know, bank account information, employee information, anything that could cause you to fail an audit. If you get audited, do you have all of the records? But if you are in a business that requires that you have security, what's going to happen when they come in and audit, okay, so any of that sort of data is information that you should protect. That means a lot of different things. I've taught some courses on this before, but it includes things like segmenting your networks so that people who don't need to get it at data can't get the data. In this day and age, for the truly paranoid, we see this more and more, it's called a zero-trust network. So people or machines can only get at things that you explicitly allow. So it isn't as though anyone in accounting can get to this, it's this person in the accounting can get to this. So all of your data is segmented. And again, don't let them keep your passwords. Try and do some of the administration stuff yourself, at least on the password side. Change the password and save it in an encrypted password manager to keep track of those passwords. Then when you have to call your managed services provider or your break-fix shop or, or your niece, whoever it is, who's taking care of your computers, you give them the password for that machine. They can get on and can do their thing. They get everything working, you watch them as they're working, which is another thing that we do. We're only on the machine when there's someone else watching, remotely. And we record all those sessions. By the way, anytime any one of our techs gets onto any machine, we have someone watching them. That is important. When the tech completes their work change the password.

The whole idea here is that they don't need to have them. And as I mentioned before, we've seen a growing number of managed services providers from around the world being targeted and compromised by hackers, including the large ones. That goes to show again, and even the big guys aren't as concerned about security. Or maybe they don't know enough about security as they should be. I was out at a prospect's place just a couple of days ago. We're talking with them about their managed services provider that they had. I mentioned earlier, this 99% number, and this is my number. But I say 99% because I have yet to find a single managed services provider that is doing security reasonably well. I have yet to find one. And that's kind of bad news, frankly, when you get right down to it. And so that's why I say 99%, right, I give the 1%. Now, I know there are Managed Security Services Providers that know how to do it, but this is a challenging world. Bottom line, is if you can find someone that you trust 100% implicitly, they are not keeping your password, not getting into machines, without permission, then you have to trust them as an insider, basically, an employee that you kind of trust, but you don't absolutely imagine and make sure obviously, you keep those employees in line too. We're going to be coming up here in just very soon, actually another segment or two, with what you need to worry about for your holiday shopping. I want to start this whole thing off by talking about what you should be doing and how to verify a site and whether it's legitimate because it turns out there are three times more fake shopping sites than there are real ones out there. So be very, very careful of that. Now, before we get into that, let's do about these bogus hiring scams, it confuses me because when you get down to it, we have such high employment rates right now. It makes you wonder why the bogus ones are having such success out there. I don't know. Maybe people are just trying to look for a raise because there are so many great job opportunities. I don't know. Okay, employment is at an all-time high. With the economy buzzing like this, finding workers for seasonal part-time work is getting harder and harder. Think about what Black Friday means. Black Friday is when retailers finally become profitable or "in the black" as far as books go. It's not quite as true as it used to be. It used to be that most of the year retailers operated in the negative and it took until right around Thanksgiving before things turned around, because that's when people start shopping for the holidays. So these employers are now having to compete with the spam employment opportunities on top of it all. And the whole online application process is just fraught with opportunities for fishers to glean all the information they could need to impersonate you. So you've got to be very careful, and one of the things you can do, and this is the same thing if you're looking to purchase online, is verify that you did not end up on a scam site. So bottom line, if you're looking for a job, and most people are going to start their job search on Google, which is an okay place to start, and they might top in or type in seasonal opportunities. Just yesterday, I was sitting with my wife, and she did a download to the latest version of Microsoft PowerPoint. We subscribe to Office for all of our employees, including my wife, as she helps out with the business. Anyway, she did a Google search, and instead of "office," she typed "orifice," and you know slip up, and you know how it is when you kind of automatic type sometimes. She typed for Microsoft for this download, and we got results that were all scam websites. It was all set up to make you think that you were on the Microsoft Office website and that you were downloading legitimate Microsoft Office software. I was sitting right next to her. I suspect many of you might have clicked on some of that stuff, you never know what's going to happen? Because again, she was automatic typing, she didn't notice she had mistyped it. And she might not have seen these sites weren't a legitimate site. So you have to keep an eye on that. If you're looking for part-time jobs and they come up in the Google results, you might try typing in the website directly. So let's say you want to take a part-time job, but Walmart or Target or something, go to the Target.com website and make sure it's legit. How do you make sure it's legit? Well, we're going to talk about that a little later in this hour. We're going to talk about verifying the shopping sites, but if you go to their website, and if there are multiple pages on the website that all look legit like there's a real shopping cart, there's real stuff online, there's real privacy, disclaimers, etc. That's probably a real target site, and it's not a scam site. And then you can go ahead and fill out the Hiring information. I would be cautious about putting in things that are a little too personal. You want to give them your background and a way to contact you. But be careful with things like your social security number or bank account numbers. Many employers nowadays are asking for your social media account information. So it's one thing to say while you can go to twitter.com slash Craig Peterson and you'll see my Twitter feed. It's quite another to give them access to your Twitter account, and some of them are asking for that. They want your Twitter account username and password and your Facebook username and password. Because many times we are sending stuff using direct messages back channels, hidden channels that they're not going to see when they go to your public-facing Twitter page or Facebook page. And so Martin Employers are saying hey, listen, we want to have a good inside look at your social media account. So I would not give them any that sort of information. Remember if it is a scam, even if it's not a scam if they get hacked, which has happened before to target all of the TJ Maxx, guys, etc. that information could leak out. Alright, so I'll stick around when we come back we're going to talk about tackling ransomware and Windows. And we're going to also talk about a new payment system that's was announced and then we'll finish up with what you should be doing for the holidays. You're listening to Craig Peterson here on WGAN and online at Craig peterson.com. I am on pretty much every major podcast platform. Thanks for listening today. Stick around. I'll be right back.

Hello, everybody, welcome back, Craig Peterson here listening to me on WGAN and online. Hey, if you enjoy the show, if you listen to podcasts at all, I encourage you to subscribe to your favorite podcast platform that helps get the show noticed and gets it out. And even better if you could share it with a friend and make sure you subscribe. I'd appreciate it. You know, we put a lot of work into these. I think we're giving great information. I get great feedback and emails. I had a couple over the last few weeks here actually two weeks that were saying that these were some of the best shows of mine they've ever heard. And I've done well over 1000 shows. So I think that's, that's an excellent thing, and I appreciate those types of messages that I get from you guys. So you can always email me, let me know what you think. What is it about Though the show that you liked, maybe you have some ideas or some topics that you want me to cover all of that stuff is just great and I would love to hear from you again. Me M-E at Craig peterson.com couldn't be much simpler than that could it.

Let's get into this. We got a couple more quick security articles. Just general information here about Windows and Facebook, and then we're going to get into Black Friday scams, and of course it doesn't just go for Black Friday, this is throughout much of the holiday shopping season; actually, these all apply all year. Then we have these fake retailer sites I'll tell you about them how they're popping up and, and a little bit more about the signs. We covered that in that last segment a little bit when we were talking about the hiring scam, so stick with us today. We got a lot more to cover here before we're off the air, hard to believe two hours, can go by so fast. So let's start with windows here. Ransomware has been a problem for a long time. And for those that don't know, ransomware is where some software gets on your computer. There are a lot of mechanisms for nowadays, but it gets on your computer, it encrypts your files so that they become useless to you. And then it asks for money, the typical payment in Bitcoin, which is, by the way, attributed to be the number one reason Bitcoin Bitcoin has risen in price, and I can see that.


There is a new study released. We've got more than 1 billion Windows operating system powered PCs in use in the world today. And that makes them a huge target for hackers. Now, just this morning, I was talking with one of our engineers, and I was saying how impressed I am with Microsoft recently. Since Balmer and Gates left, it has been a fantastic, amazing company. They've been able to maintain compatibility with older software right now for the most part while increasing their security, and they have turned a lump of coal into something that's, that's worthwhile, right? I still don't think it's anywhere near as good as something like Mac OS is on the apple side. But not everybody can run Mac OS, not everybody understands it. So major kudos to our friends over at Microsoft. It's amazing. But they are a big target, and they do have a large attack surface. In other words, there are a lot of things in Inside Microsoft Windows that can be and are currently under attack. You have to be kind of leery about some of these potentially unwanted applications that are on your machine. You might have heard me mentioned before some of the bloatware that gets installed by the computer sellers. And what they do is they load up all their programs. And they get paid. It's like five bucks. They'll get paid to load 50 different games, and you know, anti-spyware, software, and McAfee or Norton, all software that is practically useless to you. And then you have to spend hours removing that bloatware from your computer. But it's not just the bloatware that's out there. There are crypto coin miners installed on our computers, unbeknownst to us. There are all kinds of vulnerability exploits Trojans, and nowadays, ransomware and what's called file-less malware. Fileless malware is why 100% of the antivirus solutions that are out there today don't work anymore because it's a file, so it never hits the disk, so they don't have a chance to examine it. So having white label type of antivirus not white-labeled, but whitelist might be beneficial. But even in those cases, there's a lot for us consider. Now we're finding ransomware that's crypto locking, is growing, the number of attacks is growing. The number of successful computer accesses is growing. Now, to me, the most disappointing part of the numbers as I've looked through this in some detail, in this report that came out.

The thing that disappoints me the most is much of the time. They are using exploits that have been around available for a couple of years or more. Many of these were patched by Microsoft, Adobe, and Oracle years ago. These are the ones that upset me the absolute most. We see now, the most significant year-on-year increase of any malware in the ransomware community, almost 75% increase since last year. So if you know someone that has had ransomware and I bet you you do somewhere in your circle of acquaintances, I don't think he would have to go out too deep right. I think it is about a 75% increase. According to Bit Defender, the number of ransomware reports dropped in the first half of the year due to one big hacking group called Grandacrab, who throttled down their efforts due to ramped-up law enforcement efforts. Now, ransomware is rising again, as these new ransomware groups are emerging to fill the void left by Grandacrab. I'm not going to go through the names of all of this different type of ransomware. These profit-motivated cybercriminals and they're just spending a little bit of time and a little bit of money because the to buy this ransomware. Some of this stuff is even licensed now. Where they have to, they download it for free. They can try it out on so many people, and then they have to go to a registration site and buy a license to use the ransomware. And then off it goes in that can be just 100 bucks. It's incredible. Here but they're also saying that they're seeing reports of miners and Phylis malware out there too. So coin miners, those are where you go to a website, then you know how the site says, Hey, can we send you news updates and you say allow or disallow yes or no on that you've seen those before, right? Those are not all illegitimate. Many of them are, most of them are legitimate. But that's how the coin miners are working. And so they will embed some code in a website, a legal site, and the coin miner will then start using your web browser to mine for various types of like Bitcoin type currencies that are out there. Okay. So we see a lot more in the ransomware style. We've got to be very, very careful. And about 40% of the population of the 1 billion people that use Windows about 40% admit the They have not applied security patches even though they're available. So make sure you ask them nowadays you don't have to go out and spend a lot of money to buy a license for Windows, you can pay monthly. And you don't have to worry about Windows upgrades anymore, because included. That's what we do with all of our customers; we include everything. Okay, we try and make it very, very easy for them. This article, as well as all of the other ones I've talked about today, and a few others we're not going to be able to get to today are all up on my website at Craig peterson.com. Please visit me there, you'll learn about the pop-up pieces of training. I have some of the Facebook Lives. The themes for the week and all of that stuff. You know, I'm not going to spam you with marketing messages. I'm just trying to get this out the truth out, Craig Peterson dot com. Hey, stick around. We'll be right back here listening on WGAN and online as well.

Hello, everybody, welcome back, Craig Peterson here on WGAN and online at Craig Peterson calm and on your favorite podcasting app. And please do spend a minute and subscribe if you haven't already. Well, we talked about cryptocurrencies, many, many times, when they first started coming out for started rising to prominence. I had set up a little mining operation to figure it out, and I had my wallet and everything and, and it was a little too late in the game to find Bitcoin, like right off the bat. That's why I stopped because I was only interested in finding out more about the technology. So you have to use it if you want to understand it. That's kind of the bottom line on it. And I looked at it as kind of a gimmick, and of course, we now know that the cybercriminals online found Bitcoin To be phenomenal when it comes to being able to get paid in a more or less, kind of a quiet way, right? Where people are not aware of where the money's coming or going. Now, remember that Bitcoin is not anonymous. None of this data is genuinely anonymous, bottom line, but it is kind of, you know, private, more or less. So they use it for pain ransoms. I attended an excellent briefing by the Secret Service about how they tracked down some of the bad guys that are using Bitcoin. And it was frankly fascinating, and how they've been successful at that. So don't think that you're going to somehow because you're using a cryptocurrency going to be out of the reach of the hands of the law because you're not going to be okay criminals will get caught. But we had another end enterprise, and I don't like it. Some people would probably call them a criminal enterprise called Facebook out there. And you might remember Facebook decided they were going to come up with this whole new network, they're going to do Libra and it was going to be a cryptocurrency. Now, cryptocurrencies are getting to be a serious business. You have, for instance, the government of China active in developing a cryptocurrency. China frankly, wants to be able to have a currency that they control that they can peer into the becomes the International Monetary standard, instead of the U.S. dollar. So China has been working on this for about five years, and frankly, next year, I think you can expect that China is going to have a state back state-sponsored cryptocurrency that they're going to be pushing all over the world. They are going to try and get oil valued in their cryptocurrency. I think that's a bit of a problem for us here in the U.S. and will be a challenge for our economy too. But when we look at somebody like Facebook, where they're trying to set up this network, called the Libra network, I was thinking good thoughts about it.


I know you are wondering, wait a minute, is this the Craig I've grown to know over the years What's going on here? I was kind of happy about it, as it possible for anyone anywhere in the world to have a financial transaction with you. For instance, I know some ladies who are in Africa, and they're impoverished women and trying to make ends meet and just have not been able to earn $100 a month. And many of these women are brilliant. Some of them are entrepreneurs, and they want to get a business going. And this particular group of women is now making themselves available after a friend of mine trained them here been in some technology, how to use computers and how to be a virtual assistant system. They are making themselves available as a virtual assistant. What could be more accessible for these women, and for the people who might want to hire them, than to make their transactions a cryptocurrency of some sort? A currency that they could use at their home that we could use at home. A currency that we could trust to a high degree. Remember, coins like if you have a U.S. dollar bill that you want to spend, the only reason it's worth anything, is because it's considered to be Legal Tender backed by the United States government. Now it isn't supported by silver anymore or gold anymore but deemed to be reasonable, legitimate currency. Initially, the Facebook Libra network announced they had a dozen or more of the foremost financial institutions in the United States. They would all work together and cooperate in developing this currency. Now, several reasons got squashed, not the least of which is governments and wanting to tax them and not being able to track some of the transactions easily. But I'm sure Facebook would have provided the governments with all the transaction information they wanted. Okay. So frankly, it would make it even easier for governments to track transactions than it is now. But the thing I loved about it was thinking about these women that my friend trained over in one of the poorest countries in Africa and how it would change their lives. I don't know if you've watched those some of this stuff here on micro-investments or watch how they're working. There's one organization called Shanta (https://www.shantafoundation.org) that quite impresses me. They're working in Myanmar. Interesting what they're doing, but when the basic idea with micro-investments is that somebody like you, were I, we might put $1,000 into this. And you've got someone in some countries somewhere that wants to buy a cow for the milk, and they're going to sell the milk, or they want to buy a goat or for the milk or whatever it might be micro to us. And so they're lent $100 to start a business. And they go out, and they get that business going, and they repay the loan, and that money is just put right back into another loan to another person that wants to do it. I've been following these micro-investments, and am very, very impressed with what many of these places are doing. And that led me to notice something else, which was the presence of phones, just regular cell phones that can send text messages, not smartphones. But the presence of phones and cell service coming into these tiny, tiny villages. And how most women were taking these phones. And we're using them to create businesses to support themselves and their families. Just absolutely amazing and many of these women, in fact, I think almost all of the ones my friends been teaching our single women, they've been either abandoned by their husbands Or the kids, Father, whatever you might want to call them. And they have to do all of the support. And so they're spending a whole month's wages, they're spending $100 to go through this program, this one-month long program that my friend runs. And so she's been looking for donations of laptops, just regular windows laptops, to help these women out as well. But these women get these cell phones and just with the cell phone now, there is some technology out there right now we don't use it in this country. Still, in several other developing countries that they can send money to people and receive money to people just using text messages. So just using their cell phones brought them out of extreme poverty. Now you know, we have poverty in the U.S., but poverty in the new in the U.S. looks like somebody that's upper class in these countries does. Okay. We don't know what poverty is. What we call poverty isn't, you know,' it's just astounding to me. So I got excited when I saw this whole idea behind the Libra network and what Facebook was doing with Calibra wallet. So we got to go for break, and we're going to come back I'm going to finish this up because there's something new and exciting that's happening in this space now. And then we're going to get into our Black Friday scams, and some more fake retailer sites. If you want more details, you're going to have to go to my website at Craig Peterson dot com. I'm not going to be able to cover it entirely in either the radio show today here on WGAN or my podcasts. You can find my Podcasts on pretty much every podcasting platform or my website, Craig Peterson dot com stick around, more to come

Hey, Craig Peterson, back here on WGAN. I can't believe it's been two hours since we've been together today. Man does time fly. So going back because I want to finish up our last topic here about the microtransactions and about what our friends at Facebook had been doing trying to put a cryptocurrency in place. It completely fell apart about a month ago. Facebook is planning to start rolling out something called Facebook Pay on messenger and on Facebook itself. Today, it's going to be initially available for fundraisers person to person payments, event tickets, in-game purchases, and from some pages and some businesses that are on the Facebook marketplace. And they're planning on bringing this to more people and more places. They're going to be adding not just messenger, but adding Instagram and WhatsApp to this. So basically, what they're trying to do now is use this technology to make it possible for people to pay each other no matter where they are. Now, you already know because you're just listening, you already know that I think that's a unique idea. And that is going to lift people out of poverty. Just like capitalism has, it's the best system the world has ever invented, to lift people out of poverty. And if Facebook successful this, they will save lives as well. And of course, there's the other side, Facebook's going to make a ton of money on this. Because they're going to, obviously they'll have some form of transaction fees, and they'll be making some money over that. Okay, so we got more stuff we're not going to get to today because I want to get to the Black Friday scams and the retail stuff. There either is a new secret consumer score that you have never heard of before. And I am not, unfortunately, to get time to do much. With that, I say now it's been out there for probably the better part of a decade. I found some information about it from the New York Times back in 2012, and the Wall Street Journal back in 2018. There is a scoring system that's keeping track of us, and one with which you are probably not familiar. So that's up on my website, Craig peterson.com and 18 T's and green to pay $16 million to settle a legal dispute over smart throttling smartphone plans. So they came to that agreement with the Federal Trade Commission. Okay, so now into Black Friday scams. These are happening all the time. They are souped-up during Black Friday and Cyber Monday when there's a lot of people buying stuff online, and I'll let's get into it here. This shopping fever lasts for about four days right now. Some sites like Walmart start on Wednesday, and others are ready underway here. But let's go into some of these top scams. Man, we've only got about 10 minutes left here.

So number one, this is a great article. It's from Heimdal Security dot com. I've got it up on my website at Craig Peterson dot com. If the website insistently asks you to download its application. Now, we already probably have apps from merchants. I've got Amazon, for instance, there are apps from Walmart Target, Ollie Express, Rakuten, Barnes and Noble, and the little guys are having a hard time competing there, but they try nonetheless. Now, a lot of these websites are going to talk you into downloading their mobile apps. And there's nothing wrong with that. But remember that not all of these retailers are legit, and not all of the legitimate retailers the apps are legitimate because it's rare that they would be developing the app themselves. So they probably had a third party do it. Who knows, right? So don't just willy nilly install apps from retailers are going online number two, the website looks fishy. And of course, this is pH fishy. And what that means is you might be on a cloned site. Right now, there are I was saying three earlier, but I was wrong. According to research from Venafi, they were looking at what is called TLS certificates. These are SSL certificates used basically if the website says HTTPS, then they're using TL. So they examine these. And they found that there are four times more fake retailer sites than the real one. Okay? So there are typos, squatting domains. I mentioned one of them earlier in the show today that my wife accidentally typed orifice instead of office when she's tr

Así es la nueva Telefónica: cinco líneas de actuación que marcarán su futuro

Tras el Consejo de Administración celebrado en Barcelona, Telefónica, con su presidente ejecutivo José María Álvarez-Pallete al frente, ha detallado las medidas aprobadas que llevarán a cabo para construir lo que la propia compañía denomina "la nueva Telefónica".

Este nuevo plan de acción de Telefónica, que comprende cinco líneas de actuación principales, gira alrededor de tres ejes: priorizar los mercados donde Telefónica puede ser relevante y crecer con un modelo sostenible a largo plazo; impulsar las oportunidades de mayor potencial de crecimiento afianzando el valor de las infraestructuras; y aumentar la agilidad y la eficiencia. Veamos una por una esas cinco medidas.

Cuatro mercados clave

Mercados Clave

En la actualidad, España, Brasil, Alemania y Reino Unido constituyen los principales mercados para Telefónica; de hecho, aunque a cierre del tercer trimestre de 2019 el Grupo estaba presente en 14 países, estos cuatro concentraban 218,1 millones de accesos (el 63% del total) y el 80% de ingresos, Oibda y flujo de caja operativo (OpCF).

Asegura Álvarez-Pallete que, en los últimos años, han reforzado su posicionamiento en esos cuatro países, tanto orgánica como inorgánicamente, pero son mercados de gran dimensión y con un gran potencial de crecimiento, por lo que han decidido concentrar en ellos sus inversiones.

Eso sí, bajo la dependencia del consejero delegado de Telefónica, Ángel Vilá, se mantiene a los cuatro responsables de estos mercados: Emilio Gayo (España), Christian Gebara (Brasil), Mark Evans (Reino Unido) y Markus Haas (Alemania). En cuanto a las consecuencias del Brexit, Telfónica ha reiterado que Reino Unido continuará siendo un mercado clave para la compañía; de hecho, será el primer país donde desplegará su 5G comercial.

Segregación de Hispanoamérica

Hispam

Hace ya 30 años que Telefónica decició apostar por Latinoamérica y sus operaciones allí han supuesto un motor de crecimiento para la compañía. Sin embargo, Álvarez-Pallete reconoce que, en los últimos años, "las condiciones particulares en estos mercados" han mermado su contribución por distintos motivos (entorno macro y regulatorio, mayor presión competitiva, una escala insuficiente o la volatilidad de las divisas) y, como consecuencia, sus operadores en esos países "se han debilitado".

Es por ello que Telefónica ha decidido adoptar un "spin-off operativo", o lo que es lo mismo, un nuevo modelo para sus operaciones en Hispanoamérica, que pasan a gestionarse como una unidad autónoma con un equipo dedicado. Esta unidad aglutinará los negocios de Telefónica en todos los países de Latinoamérica donde hoy opera, salvo Brasil: México, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Perú, Argentina, Uruguay y Chile.

Esto conllevará la revisión del portafolio de activos en Hispanoamérica con el objetivo de modular su exposición a la región y crear las condiciones para maximizar su valor. En este sentido, Álvarez-Pallete reconoce que están abiertos a "contemplar todas las opciones", incluyendo posibles ofertas, y que "si es necesario reducir nuestra exposición, la reduciremos".

Lanzamiento de Telefónica Tech

Tech

Para impulsar el crecimiento en los servicios de mayor potencial, nace Telefónica Tech, una nueva unidad que reunirá la propuesta de valor para el segmento B2B, enfocándose en tres negocios: ciberseguridad, IoT y Big Data, y cloud, áreas en los que, de forma agregada, la compañía asegura que está creciendo en ingresos por encima del 30% anual.

Telefónica Tech integrará las unidades globales dedicadas actualmente al desarrollo y prestación de estos servicios, y contará con los equipos comerciales de cada país para su venta. Con ello, además, pretenden exportarlos mediante alianzas a otros países en los que no están presentes y generar más de 2.000 millones de euros de ingresos adicionales en el año 2022.

Creación de Telefónica Infra

Infra

Otra unidad de nueva creación, que nace con el 50,01% de Telxius como primer activo, es Telefónica Infra, que englobará las participaciones accionariales del Grupo en vehículos de infraestructuras de telecomunicaciones. El objetivo de ello es potenciar el valor de los activos de la compañía y desarrollar modelos alternativos de despliegue de infraestructuras que aceleren el crecimiento.

En palabras de Álvarez-Pallete, "Telefónica Infra ambiciona ser una de las mayores unidades de infraestructuras de telecomunicaciones del mundo, preparada para canalizar la explosión del tráfico". Esta unidad les permitirá incorporar posibles socios y tendrá un equipo gestor que se centrará en el desarrollo y monetización de torres, sistemas de antenas distribuidas, data centers -incluido EDGE-, proyectos greenfield de fibra y cables submarinos, etc.

Nuevo modelo operativo

Centro Corporativo

Con el fin de ganar agilidad y acelerar la ejecución de su estrategia, Telefónica ha decidido evolucionar su modelo operativo hacia un planteamiento más sencillo, transparente y ágil con los clientes. Esto implica adaptar el funcionamiento del centro corporativo para focalizarse en aquellas actividades que aportan un valor diferencial a todas las unidades de la nueva Telefónica (operadoras, Telefónica Tech y Telefónica Infra).

De esa forma, pretenden eliminar algunas duplicidades existentes con las estructuras de los países, reducir la complejidad, mejorar la eficiencia y maximizar las sinergias entre todas las unidades, así como impulsar los planes de simplificación y digitalización de las operaciones.

También se simplifica el organigrama de la compañía, de manera que las unidades operativas de los cuatro grandes mercados van a seguir dependiendo del consejero delegado, Ángel Vilá, incluyendo la filial de tecnología (Telefónica Tech) y la de infrastructuras (Telefónica Infra), mientras que Telefónica Hispam pasa a depender de la directora financiera, Laura Abasolo.

Telefónica prioriza España, Brasil, Alemania y UK como mercados clave en un nuevo plan de acción que 'desprioriza' Hispanoamérica

Telefónica, que recientemente ha puesto en marcha su Plan de Suspensión Individual, ha convocado hoy en Madrid a los medios de comunicación a una rueda de prensa urgente tras la celebración del Consejo de Administración de la compañía.

A ella, han asistido el presidente ejecutivo del Grupo Telefónica, José María Álvarez-Pallete, el consejero delegado, Ángel Vilá, y la directora general de Finanzas y Control, Laura Abasolo. Antes de su inicio, Álvarez-Pallete ha hecho pública una carta donde ha explicado que la "nueva Telefónica" que ha sido diseñada "para continuar a la altura del desafío que los nuevos tiempos nos plantean" y ha detallado el plan de acción aprobado en el Consejo que llevará a cabo la compañía.

Cinco líneas de actuación

Según ha explicado la propia compañía, el nuevo plan de acción de Telefónica gira alrededor de tres ejes: priorizar los mercados donde pueden ser relevantes y crecer con un modelo sostenible a largo plazo; impulsar las oportunidades de mayor potencial de crecimiento; y aumentar la agilidad y la eficiencia.

En línea con este plan, en el Consejo se han aprobado cinco decisiones:

Esta unidad aglutinará los negocios de Telefónica en el resto de países de Latinoamérica donde hoy opera (salvo Brasil). En este sentido, Álvarez-Pallete ha reconocido que sus operadores en esos países "se han debilitado" y que están abiertos a "contemplar todas las opciones", incluyendo la "dosificación".

  • Lanzamiento de Telefónica Tech para impulsar el crecimiento en áreas de mayor potencial. Esta nueva unidad reunirá la propuesta de valor para el segmento B2B, enfocándose en tres negocios: ciberseguridad, IoT y Big Data, y cloud. Desde la compañía, esperan que esta unidad genere más de 2.000 millones de euros de ingresos adicionales en el año 2022

  • Creación de Telefónica Infra, con el 50,01% de Telxius como primer activo y con el objetivo de potenciar el valor de los activos de la compañía y desarrollar modelos alternativos de despliegue de infraestructuras que aceleren el crecimiento.

  • Evolución del modelo operativo con un nuevo centro corporativo simplificado para aumentar la agilidad, acelerar la ejecución y maximizar las sinergias entre todas las unidades de Telefónica. Esto supondrá focalizarse en operadoras, Telefónica Tech y Telefónica Infra, eliminando algunas duplicidades existentes con las estructuras de los países y reduciendo la complejidad.

Nuevo organigrama en Telefónica España

Telefonica 03

Al mismo tiempo, el Consejo de Administración de Telefónica ha aprobado hoy una nueva organización en Telefónica España, la principal operación del Grupo, que queda de la siguiente forma:

Telefonica 02

Como vemos en el organigrama, Emilio Gayo continúa como presidente ejecutivo de Telefónica España, pero se refuerzan las funciones de María Jesús Almazor, consejera delegada de Telefónica España. Bajo su responsabilidad, se crean la nueva dirección de Cliente de Gran Público, a la que llega Pedro Serrahima (hasta ahora responsable de desarrollo multimarca), y se crea la nueva dirección de Marketing y Producto de Gran Público con Sergio Oslé (Presidente de Movistar+) al frente.

Además, Raquel Fernández León asume la dirección de Personas en sustitución de Javier Delgado, y se crea la figura del director de Transformación (Sergio Sánchez Gallego), que será responsable del seguimiento y la ejecución de los proyectos de transformación de Telefónica España.

Wang Xuepu, vice president of Chinese online video streaming company iQiyi, says that artificial intelligence has enhanced the company's efficiency in all aspects of the business. From a report: "Now we can cut thousands of hours of work to just hours," Wang said in Mandarin at CNBC's East Tech West conference in the Nansha district of Guangzhou, China. He said that the company is using AI across its business like adding subtitles or integrating multimedia more quickly. Wang added AI has increased efficiency in the company's operations in many ways, including content creation, approval processes and market distribution. "iQiyi embodies the culture of Silicon Valley and culture of Hollywood. We really put an emphasis on technology development. More than half of our employees work in the technical side. We have invested in AI significantly. More than 60% of our patent submissions this year were related AI," said Wang. Wang said, for example, iQiyi has been able to predict the popularity of films and TV shows before taking them online by using big data. "We can use AI to help forecast film and TV series' viewer numbers before they are aired. With the data, we can predict the traffic and for TV series and that accuracy rate is 88%, with films we can reach near 90% accuracy," he said, according to a CNBC translation.

DLA Piper has advised fintech​ venture capital firm MiddleGame Ventures (MGV) on the structuring, setting up and launching of the MGV Fund I. The new fund will invest in early stage fintech startups developing new business models powered by advanced technologies.

This is one of the first fintech funds backed by the Luxembourg Future Fund and the European Investment Fund. Other investors include S&P Global and institutional, strategic and family offices.

Pascal Bouvier, Managing Partner at MGV, said: “We are eagerly looking forward to supporting innovation in financial technology across the European Union and the United States.

It being Thanksgiving I would be remiss in not thanking Hardy, Stephanie, and others at SHAKSPER for providing such a worthwhile forum. I’m particularly pleased this year that many months ago I kicked off a still unfolding discussion of Hamlet Q1 suggested by my essay from Chronicle of Higher Education which focused on the two conflicting views of Tiffany Stern and Terry Bourous on whether Q1 was a reported text or an early draft.

 

In case you missed it: https://www.chronicle.com/article/Shakespeare-s-Badass-Quarto/235158

 

Enter Big Data and the discussion I had hoped to see about thematic differences—if any—between the 3 Hamlets got lost in the massive clutter for the most part. (it’s possible I missed some revelatory post on this point).

 

While I am fascinated by the inability of the Big Data nabobs to agree on anything, I wonder why scholars on this site shy away from debating Shakespeare’s meaning(s) in Hamlet and in Hamlet. There’s more to know in “your philosophy” or in “our philosophy”. Such differences seem significant to me. As does the question of who changed what.

Gabriel Egan plays up the influence of Knolles on Othello:

 

Most readers find that ‘Othello’ itself echoes Richard Knolles’s ‘History of the Turks’ (published 1603), which has an epistle dated 30 September 1603.

 

Most readers appear not to include the editor of the single-volume Oxford edition of Othello, Michael Neill, who, after listing a couple of possible parallels, writes (p. 401),

 

Nevertheless the parallels between the two texts are not sufficiently precise or extensive to put Shakespeare's use of Knolles beyond dispute; and in any case, given that the dramatist clearly moved in circles that gave him access to private manuscripts, [footnote] it is not impossible that he might have read the Generall Historie before it went to press.

 

The footnote reads:

 

The numerous echoes of Florio’s Montaigne in Hamlet, and of Strachey’s True Reportory of the Wracke in The Tempest, for example, make it plain that Shakespeare must have had access to those texts in manuscript form.

 

 

 


          

In arrivo il nuovo Manuale Privacy edito da Ipsoa 

 Cache   

Sarà presentato il 16 dicembre a Roma il manuale operativo sulla protezione dei dati edito da Wolters Kluwer a cura di Nicola Bernardi con la prefazione di Antonello Soro. Il volume di 900 pagine patrocinato da Federprivacy e dal CNR di Pisa fornisce un quadro particolareggiato della disciplina generale e affronta anche i principali ambiti specifici che presentano rilevanti impatti sulla privacy con il contributo di noti esperti della materia. Già disponibile in prevendita nello Shop Online, nei prossimi giorni il volume sarà messo in vendita in tutte le librerie Ipsoa d'Italia. Campagna speciale con il libro in omaggio durante tutto il mese di dicembre  

Roma, 2 dicembre 2019 - Esamina in modo particolareggiato tutti i principali temi che regolano la disciplina della privacy, l'edizione 2020 del manuale edito da Wolters Kluwer in uscita nei prossimi giorni a cura di Nicola Bernardi con la prefazione di Antonello Soro, Presidente del Garante per la protezione dei dati personali.  

Oltre ad una esaustiva parte generale, il nuovo volume di circa 900 pagine "Privacy - Protezione e trattamento dei dati" contiene anche una serie di capitoli in cui vengono trattati ambiti specifici come videosorveglianza, Blockchain, intelligenza artificiale, cloud computing, whistleblowing, BYOD, Internet of Things e Big Data, che sono stati curati da noti autori come Antonio Ciccia Messina, Michele Iaselli, Fulvio Sarzana, Angelo Jannone, Domenico Laforenza, Andrea Sitzia, Valentina Frediani, Monica Perego, Marco Soffientini, e dallo stesso Presidente di Federprivacy, Nicola Bernardi, che spiega: "Considerando che i temi della data protection pervadono ormai ogni angolo della nostra vita quotidiana, è stato fondamentale il contributo dato dagli esperti specializzati nei vari settori, che ci hanno permesso di raggiungere l'obiettivo di realizzare un'opera in grado di fornire un quadro generale ma preciso di tutti i principali campi che presentano rilevanti impatti sulla privacy". 

Come osserva il Garante Soro nella sua prefazione del libro, "
la protezione dati è il terreno elettivo per saggiare la tenuta del diritto rispetto alla tecnica e riportare l’uomo al centro di uno sviluppo tecnologico che rischia, altrimenti, di prescindere da ogni orizzonte di senso", e questo libro patrocinato da Federprivacy e dal CNR Area della Ricerca di Pisa si prefigge lo scopo di dare risposte operative e soluzioni alle situazioni che si presentano quotidianamente agli addetti ai lavori, conciliando allo stesso tempo le esigenze del mondo digitalizzato con il rispetto di un diritto fondamentale dell'individuo quale è quello alla privacy e alla protezione dei dati personali. 

Il libro, che è già disponibile in prevendita nello Shop Online di Wolters Kluwer con uno sconto del 15% sul prezzo di copertina, sarà presentato a Roma il 16 dicembre alla Sala Marconi del CNR, e nei giorni successivi verrà messo in vendita in tutte le librerie Ipsoa d'Italia.

Με εταιρεία-απάτη φέρνει την ανάπτυξη ο υπουργός Άδωνης syrago.liatsikou Τετ, 11/27/2019 - 19:31

Ο Υπουργός της Ελληνικής Δημοκρατίας φρόντισε να διαχύσει την πληροφορία της συνάντησής του με τους εξέχοντες εκπροσώπους του επενδυτικού κεφαλαίου και της καινοτομίας urbi et orbi. Είναι μάλλον βέβαιο ότι οι θιασώτες του υπουργού αγαλλίασαν με την επικοινωνία της Ελληνικής Δημοκρατίας με venture capital funds και τις μελλοντικές συνεργασίες, τα «πολλά ωραία πράγματα που θα διοργανώσουμε», αφού η κανονικότητα, η ανάπτυξη και η προκοπή —όλα αυτά που μισούσαν οι απαίσιοι αριστεροί— επιστρέφουν επιταχυνόμενα. Καλώς να ορίσει το δολλάριο.

Είναι όμως έτσι; Ταχύτατα άρχισαν να κυκλοφορούν στο διαδίκτυο πληροφορίες και τεκμήρια ότι η εταιρεία, με την οποία η Ελληνική Δημοκρατία θα συνάψει συμφωνίες για «πολλά ωραία πράγματα», δεν είναι απλώς απάτη, αλλά εξόχως κακοστημένη και πρόχειρη απάτη.

Η Parkpine Capital αυτοπροσδιορίζεται με τη φράση “Leveraging Big Data with Proven Business Models”, ο λογαριασμός twitter της όμως έχει 3 tweets και 29 ακολούθους — πού να μην ήταν και Big Data δηλαδή.

Όπως δύναται να κάνει κάθε χρήστης με σύνδεση στο διαδίκτυο (όχι όμως και το ελληνικό κράτος, απ’ ό,τι φαίνεται), μπήκαμε στην ιστοσελίδα του “venture capital” στο διαδίκτυο: Στο ανθρώπινο δυναμικό (Team) βλέπουμε… δύο νοματαίους, έναν ηθοποιό του Hollywood και έναν φαρμακοποιό που «φέρνει χρήματα από τη Μέση Ανατολή και τα διοχετεύει σε start-ups της νοτιοανατολικής Ασίας» (;). Το Portfolio θα μας ενημερώσει για τους πρώην πελάτες της Parkpine, πριν από την επικείμενη συνεργασία της με το ελληνικό κράτος: πρόκειται για δύο οντότητες/εταιρείες (με ή χωρίς εισαγωγικά, ερωτηματικό κ.ο.κ.), instapill και Global Ventures Summit, οι οποίες απ’ ότι προκύπτει έχουν δημιουργηθεί από τον ίδιο κύκλο προσώπων με την Parkpine —και άρα ουσιαστικά δεν είναι πελάτες της.

Επίσης, μία μάλλον αποτυχημένη start-up και την απάτη “Silicon Valley Institute of Technology” —όπως λέμε ABIBAS, Dolce Kabbana ή All Ftar— ένα «ίδρυμα» με… κενή τη σελίδα Projects  και Universities, και μόνη προσφερόμενη σπουδή ένα ΜΒΑ, φυσικά, με επίσης κενή τη σελίδα του. Δηλαδή, από τους τέσσερις όλους κι όλους παρουσιαζόμενους πελάτες της εταιρείας με την οποία προτίθεται να συνάψει «πολλά ωραία πράγματα» η Ελληνική Δημοκρατία, οι μισοί είναι η ίδια η εταιρεία και οι άλλοι μισοί απάτες ή αρπαχτές με αμφίβολης επιτυχίας αρπακτικότητα.

Το ελληνικό διαδίκτυο φρόντισε επίσης να μας ενημερώσει για διεθνείς καταγγελίες ενάντια στην εταιρεία για απάτη. Χοντρές καταγγελίες.

Αλλά πέραν των σχολίων-αναρτήσεων στο διαδίκτυο, όπως άλλωστε και αυτής εδώ (που, τέλος πάντων, δεν έχουν πάντοτε ποταμούς εγκυρότητας), βλέπουμε την εταιρεία Parkpine Company να καταγγέλλεται και από τις ιστοσελίδες RipOffReport και RipOffScams, εξειδικευμένες στο ξεμπρόστιασμα απατεώνων. Κάπου εκεί, νομίζω, εξαντλείται και το τεκμήριο της αθωότητας.

Υπενθυμίζοντας για άλλη μια φορά πως πρόκειται για την εταιρεία με την οποία προτίθεται να συνάψει «πολλά ωραία πράγματα» η Ελληνική Δημοκρατία, κάτι το οποίο διαφήμισε όσο ήταν δυνατόν ο Υπουργός Ανάπτυξης υπονοώντας πως η οικονομική ελπίδα έρχεται, η αντίδραση του γράφοντος, διαπιστώνοντας τα παραπάνω, ταυτίζεται με την αντίδραση του Κωνσταντίνου Μπογδάνου στην κάμερα του ελβετικού καναλιού SRF κατά τις παραμονές του δημοψηφίσματος. Η χώρα είναι αδύνατον να επιστρέψει στην κανονικότητα με αυτήν την κυβέρνηση.

OVERRIDE PARADE: ISU-ISUPARIWISATA BERKELANJUTANPADA DESTINASI KEPULAUAN DI INDONESIA

 Cache   
Pariwisata saat ini memiliki masalah; relatif kecanduan pertumbuhan, yang tidak sesuai dengan tujuan keberlanjutan.Meskipun selama lebih dari tiga decade pariwisata berkelanjutan terus didengungkan sebagai bentuk ideal dari pariwisata; otoritas pariwisata di seluruh dunia tetap mempromosikan aspek-aspek pertumbuhan meskipun keterbatasan ekologis dan social telah menjadi isu strategis di banyak negara.Selain itu yang menjadi permasalahan kemudian, pariwisata seringkali dikaitkan dengan berbagai isu yang relative memiliki spectrum yang jauh dari pariwisata itu sendiri. Dengan melakukan studi literatur dari 67 artikel baik dari prosiding, jurnal nasional dan internasional, buku, serta laporan dari lembaga nasional dan internasional, artikel ini melihat bagaimana sebenarnya esensi dasar dari permasalahan utama sector ini di Indonesiaadalah overtourismdan tourism leakage.Karena itu tulisan ini berpendapat bahwa pariwisata harus dipahami dan dikelola dengan konteks keberlanjutan yang lebih luas.Rekomendasi dari tulisan ini diantaranya dibutuhkan riset-riset terbarukan seperti sustainable mobilities melalui big data sehingga beragam pendekatan untuk strategi pariwisata dapat dilihat secara real time dan menyasar langsung pada permasalahan pariwisata.
          

Киберкоммунизм на пороге

 Cache   
Каждый раз, когда я завожу разговор о киберкоммунизме, находятся люди, которые закатывают глаза и начинают рассказывать о том, что это нереально или что «всё должен решать рыночек».
Ребята, очнитесь! Поглядите по сторонам! Узрите реальность, в которой вы находитесь, во всей полноте!

1. «Гугл» недавно завершил разработку нового квантового компьютера, мощность которого на порядки превышает вычислительную мощность самого мощного традиционного (полупроводникового) суперкомпьютера «Summit».
Китайские учёные совершают прорыв за прорывом в этом направлении, добиваясь ошеломляющих результатов, их квантовые компьютеры сопоставимы по мощности с гугловским.
«Росатом» также собирается строить свой квантовый компьютер (сразу после этой новости проститутки с «BBC» и «Лентача» устроили форменную истерику).
Обычно такая гонка описывается выражением «ноздря в ноздрю».

Стремительный рост вычислительных мощностей уже скоро позволит считать потребности экономики в реальном времени (скорость реагирования рынка на изменение потребностей – примерно 8-9 месяцев!).

2. Следующий пункт – это технология 5G, «интернет вещей». Смотрел американских экспертов, которые наперебой вещают «и вовсе-то нас Китай не обогнал». Правда, в Китае вышек 5G уже свыше 200 тысяч, в России тестируют на экспериментальных площадках (при помощи «Хуавэй»), а в США – ноль. Но «мы не отстаём, нет, мы просто затаились, очень глубоко затаились».

Кстати, средний пинг в США в районе 120 мс, в Москве около 24 мс (58 мс уже считается плохоньким), а при внедрении 5G тесты показывают около 1 мс.

Внедрение нового стандарта интернета позволит хирургам проводить операции дистанционно (управляя роботизированными манипуляторами без задержек и лагов), оптимизировать дорожный трафик (выбирая оптимальный маршрут движения и уменьшая количество пробок) и многое другое.

3. Искусственный интеллект. Умные дома, личные цифровые помощники и даже холодильники с подключением к интернету уже сейчас собирают информацию для «эппл», «гугл», «амазон», «фейсбука», «яндекса» и других компаний о ваших потребностях и предпочтениях.
Всё это формирует big data, позволяющую с высокой точностью просчитывать производственные потребности экономики. И адресно удовлетворять потребности каждого человека.

Если это могут делать частные корпорации, то почему это же не может делать система централизованного государственного планирования экономики?

Опять же, за счёт массовости поставок и оптимизации логистики (расчёты маршрутов развоза товаров также могут осуществлять компьютерные алгоритмы) можно существенно снижать стоимость товаров для конечных потребителей.
А производители при этом будут минимизировать свои риски, что позволит им меньше прибегать к их страхованию, в том числе к кредитам (потому что кредиты в экономике – это тоже форма страхования рисков, как правильно отмечает коллега Хазин).

Вплоть до того, что через несколько лет вы будете заказывать всё необходимое вам через интернет, а затем просто идти в ближайший пункт распределения (которые заменят сегодняшние магазины) и там забирать свой номерной свёрток (который уже оплачен).

У меня несколько лет назад даже была идея, что можно такой пункт распределения делать возле каждого подъезда многоквартирных домов. Но тут ещё нужно считать эффективность и расходы, насколько это оптимально с точки зрения логистики.

Недаром Путин говорит о цифровизации экономики – это самая передовая тенденция. Полностью укладывающаяся в концепцию киберкоммунизма.

Развитие технологий уже в ближайшие несколько лет кардинально поменяет окружающую реальность (в очередной раз). Вопрос больше в том, готово ли ваше сознание оперативно подстраиваться под эту меняющуюся реальность, готовы ли вы заниматься самообучением, чтобы ей соответствовать?

И всё это УЖЕ делается. Вопрос только в том, КТО будет это реализовывать в нашей стране – частные корпорации, ориентированные на прибыль, или государство, ориентированное на удовлетворение потребностей граждан.

P.S. Люди, которые пишут такие вещи, обычно любят называть себя громкими именами – типа «футуристы» или «визионеры». Но я просто экономический аналитик, который внимательно следит за происходящим в мире.

Why Every Developer Needs to be a Generalist

 Cache   

Developer Generalist vs Specialist

Context, as they say, is king.

The age-old question of exactly what a software developer should focus on learning has been crossing my mind a lot lately. More than ever, our technology is evolving at a furious pace - and the coding world is definitely feeling the pressure. It can be overwhelming to choose where to pay attention and what to dismiss as a passing fad.

So what are you to do? Let’s look at what the next decade has in store for the development world.

Past Predictions

Cory House spoke convincingly on the merits of specializing in one area to become a known and trusted voice. A few years ago, Forbes came out with a high level article proclaiming the opposite. More recently, I stumbled upon this post on Hacker Noon embracing the notion of both specialist and generalist. Which way is a developer supposed to go? The answer to this question can feel largely opinion-based but there are some logical ways to examine it. Let’s get started.

How Do I Choose the Right Tech to Focus On

This is the question for a specialist: how to leap frog from one framework lilypad to another. It’s easy to fall in love with a specific area of coding and become obsessed - I’ve certainly done it. However, it can truly lead to a head-in-the-sand position when the world moves on without you (my condolences to Windows Phone developer friends, for example).

Are You Saying I Should be a Full Stack Developer

Great question! “Generalist” doesn’t always mean “Full Stack”; they aren’t interchangeable. The traditional view of a full stack programmer referred to the web (back end and front end) but there are many different places where code plays a role!

Personally, I’ve coded for voice, IoT, APIs, timer jobs, mobile apps, intranet sites, external websites, ETLs, and the list goes on. Is any of that knowledge evergreen? Some of it! Mostly the ways in which I interacted with my team and product owner - not how I specifically customized a Sharepoint page.

You can carry a cross-section of evergreen knowledge with you as a software engineer. A specific part of those “years of experience” is still applicable to whatever you need to work on now. And that part fits neatly into being a generalist developer.

Why Does Future Tech Require a Generalist Approach

Regardless of what kind of coding you do now, areas of our industry are developing in impossible to ignore ways. Remember when Javascript started taking over the world? If you wanted to do anything in the browser, you had to learn it. Now, not only does it influence the browser - Node.js & Reactive Native have hugely influenced API and mobile app development as well.

Remember when AI was just another fad? With advancements in Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Big Data analytics - it doesn’t look so dismissable anymore.

Even if your main gig is maintaining a legacy code base, you owe it to your future self to know what tools are out there, different than what you use today. This knowledge doesn’t have to be super deep to be powerful, but you do need to know enough about current and future industry techniques to understand where your experience can fit.

What Should All Developers Learn Right Now

I’m glad you asked! There are a few areas in particular that developers really can’t afford to ignore anymore.

1. Security

Naturally, the developer relations team here at Okta cares a lot about this topic! Often, developers are content to make a system ‘just work’ well enough to get out the door for a deadline. The result is company after company coming forward and admitting to their users that their data was not securely stored or collected. This is an area you HAVE to educate yourself on.

Get started with the basics like the OWASP Top 10 security vulnerabilities. The Cheat Sheet Series is another excellent resource for app devs looking to become knowledgeable on security quickly.

Next, make sure you are coding securely from the very beginning, from how you store API keys to the way you deploy your code. This is one area you cannot afford to cut corners. We’ve got lots of blog posts here at Okta to get you up to speed on user security specifically.

2. Machine Learning

Automation will come in many forms and affect all areas of technology. You should have at least a cursory understanding of how your data is fed into various algorithms and the decisions those algorithms can make.

You’ll need to use coding languages like Python and/or R to get started in this area and there are great tutorials on using Jupyter Notebooks to help. However, if you are interested in using machine learning as a service, Microsoft has come a long way with Cognitive Services, which will allow you to use REST APIs to do basic machine learning tasks like image recognition or text analysis. No matter what business you are part of, AI is here to stay in some capacity and you will probably need to interact with it in some way.

3. DevOps/TechOps

Even if you aren’t the keeper of the big red deployment button, it’s crucial for all developers to understand how code gets to production. From mastering pull-request procedures to knowing how your application architecture impacts hosting costs, development work is intrinsically tied to ops work. This is especially true with microservices architecture, which often impact the bottom line.

Reach out to your local DevOps or TechOps meetup or user group and get acquainted with a few people who really know the practice. If that’s not an option in your area, watch a few video courses on the subject. Look into scripting tools for DevOps automation like Terraform or Pulumi. Playing with infrastructure as code can actually be quite enjoyable and a nice change of pace coming from application development. Whether you are the only technical person both building and deploying code, or you are one part of a large department with a separate DevOps team, take the time to become educated on this flow.

What Do You Think Developers Should Learn

Being a specialist can be rewarding, but being a generalist is a necessity. You truly do need a bit of both; just remember not to sacrifice general knowledge in order to focus on your preference. Security, Machine Learning, and Dev/Tech Ops are the top 3 topics I believe have strong merit at the moment, but that list is certainly not exhaustive. Comment below with what you believe every coder needs to add to their ever-growing toolbox!

Фонд "Сколково" будет развивать проекты рынка LegalTech в рамках отдельного акселератора

 Cache   

Он будет поддерживать инновационные разработки, способные сделать юридическую деятельность эффективнее за счет машинного обучения, блокчейна и цифровых сервисов


Фонд "Сколково" планирует запустить акселератор для развития технологических проектов в сфере юриспруденции (LegalTech) в 2020 году. Об этом ТАСС в пятницу заявил директор по развитию юридических технологий фонда "Сколково" Антон Пронин на международной конференции Skolkovo LegalTech.Black Edition.

Программа ускоренного развития будет поддерживать инновационные разработки, способные сделать юридическую деятельность корпораций и юридических фирм эффективнее за счет машинного обучения, блокчейна и цифровых сервисов. В ней смогут участвовать проекты разной степени развития - от прототипа до рыночного продукта. В данный момент фонд ведет переговоры с партнерами - представителями институтов развития, банковской сферы и консалтинга.

"Развитие и поддержка проектов в сфере LegalTech стало частью стратегии фонда "Сколково", это одно из ключевых направлений. В следующем году мы совместно с партнерами планируем запустить акселератор, особенностью которого будет фокус на внедрение и пилотирование, а также ориентация на ключевого заказчика. Результатом должен быть совместный пилот", - отметил собеседник агентства.

Резиденты "Сколково" после участия в акселераторе смогут получить дополнительные баллы при рассмотрении заявок на гранты. Для стартапов, которые пока не получают поддержку фонда, участие в акселераторе LegalTech поможет ближе познакомиться с работой "Сколково" и подать заявку на получение статуса резидента.

"У нас есть примеры, когда заказчики даже готовы финансировать пилоты и выдавать свои гранты для участников акселераторов. Будем договариваться с партнерами о таких возможностях. Мы также будем помогать разработчикам выезжать на международные конференции и приглашать для обучения зарубежных специалистов", - пояснил Пронин, добавив, что свою готовность делиться опытом уже выразили представители LegalTech-акселератора в Сингапуре, запущенного в прошлом году. Один из его создателей - главный исполнительный директор Сингапурской академии права (SAL) Пол Нио, - вошел в число спикеров форума в "Сколково".

Ежегодная международная конференция Skolkovo LegalTech. Black Edition проходит в Инновационном центре "Сколково" в третий раз. В ней участвуют представители власти и бизнеса, а также специалисты крупнейших российских и международных юридических организаций. На сессиях и мастер-классах обсуждаются новые аспекты работы юриста и пути трансформации бизнес-моделей юридических фирм и отделов компаний в эпоху внедрения новых технологий в сферу права (рынок LegalTech-продуктов). Организатором конференции выступает фонд "Сколково" в партнерстве с коммуникационным брендом IPQuorum и Forbes Russia.

Технологии LegalTech

Развитие технологических проектов в сфере права позволяет автоматизировать работу, которую юрист привык выполнять вручную - оформление документов в один клик становится возможным как в отношении однотипных судебных исков, так и при создании сложных договоров в области слияний и поглощений компаний.

Умные цифровые платформы, внедренные, к примеру, в международной юридической компании Hogan Lovells, помогают специалистам заранее уточнять объемы и результаты каждой сделки и планировать каждую стадию реализации проекта, вычитывать тексты договоров на предмет противоречий и ошибок, а системы электронного документооборота повышают скорость обработки данных. При этом искусственный интеллект (ИИ) в основе таких цифровых инструментов позволяет обучить систему с учетом индивидуальных потребностей компании и ее клиентов.

Резиденты "Сколково" - в числе лидеров формирующегося рынка LegalTech. В частности, Европейская юридическая служба (компания "ЕЮС Технологии") уже использует математические алгоритмы в основе сервиса индивидуального подбора услуг для человека - данные, которые он вносит в анкету, система сравнивает с сотнями профилей других клиентов, выявляя наиболее популярные опции для людей определенного возраста, региона, профессии и других параметров. ИИ используется в основе автоматизированной платформы для оказания моментальных юридических консультаций Legal Cloud. В качестве базы данных для анализа и сопоставления с ситуациями клиент использует информацию о 4 млн реальных юридических кейсах. Умная платформа, по сути, заменяет консультацию юриста.

IT-компания "Онлайн Патент" также входит в число резидентов фонда "Сколково". Она предлагает клиентам интерактивную платформу для подготовки и подачи документов в сфере охраны объектов интеллектуальной собственности. Все шаги по подготовке к оформлению прав на изобретение, товарный знак или программу - от поиска аналогов до подачи заявки в патентное ведомство - пользователь может пройти онлайн.

Больше, чем юрист

Цифровизация уже начала менять роль юриста в организации, считает Пронин. Из руководителей подразделений, отвечающих за юридическое сопровождение процессов, они вырастают в ключевых членов правления компании, способных выстраивать гибкие стратегии развития.

"Освободившись от рутинной деятельности, руководители юридических подразделений станут полноценными участниками бизнеса, это уже сейчас происходит на примере российских и международных компаний. Эти люди участвуют в принятии стратегических решений о слиянии, поглощении, о рисках, анализируют конкурентов и обогащают управленческие решения своей компетенцией", - продолжил он.

Средний класс и уровень начинающих специалистов в юриспруденции должен будет адаптироваться под изменения рынка труда, вызванные цифровизацией. Развитие технологий приведет к автоматизации 80% процессов подготовки договоров и шаблонов, считает Пронин.

"Есть прогнозы, что часть из них перейдет в вендоры и интеграторские команды в сфере LegalTech, так как они обладают компетенциями и способны грамотно поставить задачу. Такие профессии уже появляются - Legal-инженер, к примеру. Однако какой-то пласт специалистов, конечно, вымоется", - заключил представитель фонда "Сколково".

Сможет ли ИИ в будущем заменить людей в судебной системе? Об этических нюансах вопроса на форуме высказалась исполнительный директор НП "Содействие развитию корпоративного законодательства" Елена Авакян.

"Последнее, на что пойдет человечество, это на замену судий роботами. По одной простой причине - очень страшно оказаться в антиутопии, когда у нас не будет выбора", - сказала она, добавив, что только человек способен отнестись к ситуации и ее участникам с сочувствием. Эксперт также отметила необходимость проверки и анализа решений, которые формируют системы на основе ИИ.

"ИИ будет следовать не нашим представлениям о прекрасном, а нашим действиям, и в этом особенная беда. Когда мы говорим об ИИ в судопроизводстве, я полагаю, что самое главное, и этому должны научиться и мы с вами, - анализировать алгоритмы, отвечать на вопрос, почему машина, предлагая условие, выбрала такой вариант", - отметила Авакян.

Компетенции для цифрового права

Развитие технологий в юриспруденции требует новых компетенций от специалистов. Американский юрист и адвокат, лауреат премии юридических инноваторов Fastcase 50 Ари Каплан поделился с участниками форума своей практикой работы с юридическими отделами ведущих международных компаний по повышению эффективности бизнеса за счет юридических подразделений.

"ИИ никогда не заменит юристов, но юристы, работающие с подобными технологиями, заменят тех своих коллег, которые этого не делают", - уверен он.

Свои кейсы по внедрению новых правовых инструментов, избавляющих юристов от рутинной работы и повышающих продуктивность отделов, также представили управляющий партнер Deloitte Legal в СНГ Анна Костыра и международный руководитель по цифровому и инновационному развитию Deloitte Legal Томас Нортхофф. В частности, они рассказали о роли ИИ и big data в снижении количества ошибок, причиной которых служит человеческий фактор.

"В случае с беспилотным транспортом тоже есть это сравнение - что опаснее? Любой человек может не выспаться, настроение не то, а машина не устает, у нее настроение всегда одинаковое, а значит в этом смысле она более безопасна. Те, кто поддерживает технологизацию права, исходят из этой же логики - всегда есть человеческий фактор, которого машина лишена", - сказал председатель правления фонда "Сколково" Игорь Дроздов, комментируя в ходе панельной дискуссии тему ошибок.

"[В контексте LegalTech] нам еще предстоит определить, что по своей сути представляет право - гуманистическую ценность или какой-то механизм, сформулировать некие правила, которые нам будет удобно понимать и по ним жить. Потому что LegalTech - это не только помощь для юриста, это возможность сделать правовое регулирование более доступным для обычного человека", - заключил он.

В свою очередь заместитель министра юстиции РФ Михаил Гальперин считает важным, чтобы при внедрении новых технологий в сфере права лидеры LegalTech учитывали реакцию конечного потребителя услуги, который может быть психологически не готов к радикальным переменам. Развитие этого рынка услуг также зависит от цифровой зрелости общества. Он также выделил несколько основных этапов развития индустрии.

"Сначала это аттракцион, далее роскошь и только потом это какой-то массовый продукт. Важно понять, на какой стадии мы находимся сейчас. Мне кажется, что мы уже почти не аттракцион, [LegalTech] уже превращается в определенную роскошь. Насколько быстро эти технологии перейдут в массовый продукт, зависит от нас с вами. Для этого нам надо учитывать психологию людей, для которых мы это делаем, и мое ощущение, что мы делаем это не только для бизнеса, но и для всего населения [России]", - сказал замминистра на форуме.

Потенциал рынка

Согласно отчету исследовательской компании Zion Market Research (США), в 2018 году мировой рынок LegalTech превысил $3,2 млрд. К 2026 году объем рынка составит почти $38 млрд, предполагают эксперты.

Why Work at Morgan Stanley? Here Are Four Great Reasons.

 Cache   

SOURCE: Morgan Stanley

DESCRIPTION:

From autonomous vehicles, to the software behind the Internet of Things, to the power of big data—innovation and disruption are driving the markets as never before, with industries and whole sectors changing at speeds that were once unfathomable. Underpinning this massive change is financial services—the engine that helps ignite companies to develop new products and create new markets. Harnessing that explosive growth takes a lot of hard work, thoughtful strategy, good advice, and financing. And, of course, the people who can make all that happen. Which is why we are always looking for bright, curious and creative people to join our team at Morgan Stanley.

Here at Morgan Stanley, our people are our greatest asset, taking on challenges big and small to help our clients realize their goals. How do we do that? By valuing collaboration. If you have a good idea or a solution to a problem that no one has thought of, we want to hear from you, whether you’re an Associate or a Managing Director and whether your college major was finance, technology, liberal arts or engineering. A diversity of opinions, experience and backgrounds creates the wealth of perspective that brings about success.

I have a bit more to say on that below. But first I want to introduce you to a few talented people who represent that diversity; the stars of four new videos we’ve produced that highlight Who We Are. Examples of our rising talent throughout the firm describe why they find it so personally rewarding to work at Morgan Stanley, something I’ve been lucky enough to do for more than 32 years. Take a look and I think you’ll get a sense of why Morgan Stanley is such a compelling place to build your career. 

While each employee you’ll hear from has their own story to tell, a few common themes emerge, ones that resonate with me personally and that I thought I’d take a moment to reflect on.

1.  You are encouraged to use your creativity to tackle complex problems 

If you are someone who enjoys stretching yourself professionally, who is excited to take on new and complex challenges every day, you’ll find a way to build a gratifying career at Morgan Stanley. Take Sebastian, a quant analyst who is profiled in the videos I mentioned above. Sebastian told us, “I don’t feel like I’ve stopped learning here at Morgan Stanley. Once I’ve mastered a concept, there’s always something else I can become good at.” Together, we work across business units to find solutions to whatever problems we face. One example: our recently launched Plastic Waste Resolution, a firm-wide commitment to combat the ever-growing plastic waste problem that exists today. Employees across Research, Corporate Services, Investment Management, Human Resources and our Sustainable Investing Institute are all working towards our goal of achieving carbon neutrality for global operations by 2022.

2.  You’ll find opportunities to innovate every day, including as a technologist (that’s right—a technologist)

Working in technology at a financial services firm offers many of the same exciting opportunities for innovation that big tech companies and startups do, while delivering the sort of variety, mobility, autonomy and resources other companies can’t. As Rose-Gaelle, a software engineer featured in the Who We Are videos puts it, “At first, I was confused when a Morgan Stanley recruiter called me about a summer internship. How could my skills transfer to a position within an investment bank?” What she discovered once she was hired was that “Morgan Stanley is the ideal place for motivated and talented people, especially technologists.” In fact, we recently earned the distinction of being the only Financial Services firm named to Fast Company’s inaugural list of 50 Best Workplaces for Innovators. The list recognized our Technology Innovation Office, which funds promising employee projects in key areas, including artificial intelligence, data analytics, and fintech, and offers an accelerator program to expedite the patent-filing process. We also have an Innovation Lab, which provides a sort of digital “sandbox,” allowing employees to experiment with code, software and other technologies.

3.  You’ll have the chance to work at a company where diversity is highly valued

At Morgan Stanley, diversity isn’t just a buzzword, it’s something we embrace every day. Our employees represent a wealth of different backgrounds and bring their unique perspectives, ideas and experiences to whatever role they take on, helping cultivate a workplace that is resilient, results-driven and effective. And we look to promote diversity in other ways, too. Our Multicultural Innovation Lab is an in-house accelerator supporting early-stage tech and tech-enabled startups led by multicultural and women entrepreneurs, a segment who receive only a fraction of the venture capital money that other entrepreneurs do. The Lab is designed not only to help close this trillion-dollar funding gap, but to give women and multicultural founders the tools, access and opportunity they need to succeed.

4.  You’ll be encouraged to give back to your community

A common thread that unites our people—across divisions, levels and regions—is our commitment to giving back to the communities in which we live and work. Morgan Stanley employees create meaningful, lasting social impact, whether they are working at food banks during our Global Volunteer Month every June or offering expertise as part of our annual pro bono initiative. The Morgan Stanley Strategy Challenge matches nonprofits with rising talent within the firm to develop action plans that help address mission-critical issues. The Strategy Challenge has delivered 95,000 service hours valued at over $14.6M to 128 nonprofits since the program began in 2009. But you don’t have to be picked to participate in the Strategy Challenge to give back at Morgan Stanley. Since 2006 our employees have contributed over 2.1 million hours of volunteer work during our annual Global Volunteer Month—that equates to 240 years of donated time and effort to help the communities we call home across the globe.

It’s just one more reason why Morgan Stanley is such a special place to work. But don’t take my word for it. Hear what these associates have to say about what they find rewarding about working at Morgan Stanley. I hope you’ll be encouraged to join them.

Session on "Data driven materials science" at the DPG Spring Meeting (Dresden, Germany)

 Cache   

Dear colleagues, 

we would like to make you aware of the topical session 

"Data driven materials science"

which is part of the MM program during the DPG Spring Meeting 2020. The latter takes place March 15-20, 2020, in Dresden.  

If you are performing experiments or simulations in this emerging field, you are most welcome to contribute your abstract. You can find the session at the bottom of the list "Themenbereiche" on the abstract submission webpage 
https://www.dpg-tagung.de/dd20/submission.html ]. 

In addition we will have some outstanding invited talks given by (some of them not yet confirmed):
- Tilmann Beck (TU Kaiserslautern)
- Cecilie Hebert (EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland)
- Jan Janssen (MPIE Düsseldorf)
- Marcus J. Neuer (BFI Düsseldorf)
- Stefan Sandfeld (TU Freiberg)

Please, note that this is session is not identical with the symposium "Big data driven materials science (SYBD)", which is on invitation only. Our session in MM is more focussed on structure-composition-property relationships in materials science. Please see the abstract below for details. 

We are looking foward to a vivid session on innovative developments!  Abstract:----------
This session covers innovative high-throughput and materials-informatics approaches for the discovery, description and design of materials. The contributions should address recent developments in the fields of data mining, machine learning, and artificial intelligence for the identification of structure-composition-property relationships in the highly diverse, but often sparse materials data space. Contributions from experiment such as diffraction and various tomography techniques, materio-graphic feature identification, as well as simulation results from the atomistic up to the continuum level are foreseen. A particular focus will be on the consideration of extended materials defects (grain boundaries, stacking faults, dislocation cores) and microstructures. Furthermore, submissions of contributions on accumulating, analyzing, interpreting, storing, and sharing fundamental knowledge about materials is solicited. Contributions may range, and preferably bridge, from physics-based materials understanding to data-driven and application-oriented development.
