I vincitori di Open-F@b Call4Ideas 2018 premiati durante l'evento finale del contest internazionale promosso da BNP Paribas Cardif, tra le prime dieci compagnie assicurative in Italia (Classifica ANIA 2017), in collaborazione con Insurance Up, sono Mabasta (1° classificato), Leaf (2° classificato) e Uyolo (3°classificato). A selezionare in real time le migliori idee che hanno un impatto sociale positivo sulle persone e sulla società, una giuria di esperti e il pubblico in sala che hanno votato i dieci finalisti via webapp durante l'avvincente Final Challenge in cui si sono sfidati con passione e creatività. I tre vincitori verranno ora supportati dal team R&D di BNP Paribas Cardif che li seguirà nello sviluppo e nella concretizzazione del loro progetto, tenendo in considerazione le esigenze del mercato e della Compagnia. La quinta edizione di Open-F@b Call4Ideas, contest longevo e di successo che ha contribuito a costruire un modello consolidato di Open Innovation per BNP Paribas Cardif, ha avuto una grande adesione con 129 progetti pervenuti dall'Italia e dall'estero, a testimonianza che il tema è molto sentito.  I tre migliori progetti hanno rappresentato al meglio il connubio tra innovazione e sostenibilità. Con Mabasta sarà possibile prevenire i fenomeni del bullismo e del cyberbullismo nelle scuole con azioni svolte "dal basso", da parte dei ragazzi stessi; Leaf offre servizi bancari virtuali alle popolazioni vulnerabili che attraversano i confini territoriali, permettendo a rifugiati e migranti di viaggiare in sicurezza, senza contanti, proteggendo i propri risparmi; Uyolo è una startup innovativa che si occupa di ideare, sviluppare e commercializzare prodotti innovativi ad alto valore tecnologico nei campi della filantropia, volontariato e imprenditoria sociale. Tra i fattori chiave che hanno portato alla vittoria le tre idee figurano, oltre al contenuto tecnologico e alla capacità della proposta di generare un impatto positivo su persone e società, anche la fattibilità del progetto. "Quest'anno il tema di Open-F@b Call4Ideas ci sta particolarmente a cuore perché per noi l'innovazione non è più solo una questione tecnologica. Vogliamo innovare per prevenire, assistere e proteggere meglio i nostri clienti, migliorando la qualità della vita delle persone. Questo significa offrire prodotti con un valore tangibile e riconosciuto attraverso servizi di assistenza di alta qualità inclusi, per supportare i clienti in situazioni difficili, migliorare la customer experience, favorendo l'interazione con nuovi touchpoints, e rendere le polizze ampiamente accessibili e semplici." - ha dichiarato Isabella Fumagalli, Head of Territory for Insurance in Italy di BNP Paribas Cardif - "Il fattore abilitante che ci aprirà nuovi scenari di miglioramento dei bisogni sociali, sostenendo anche la nostra competitività, sarà la capacità di saper creare e gestire ecosistemi dove integrare competenze assicurative, tecnologia, servizi, collaborazione con startup, partner, player di altri settori, attori sociali, dipendenti e comunità." La cerimonia di premiazione - presentata dal blogger e conduttore radiofonico Luca Viscardi - si è tenuta ieri a Milano presso la Fondazione Catella, trasformata per l'occasione in una "Foresta delle idee". Prendendo spunto dalla pianta del nuovo parco, La Biblioteca degli Alberi, all'interno del quale è inserita la Fondazione Catella, gli ospiti sono stati accolti sin dal cortile da sfere luminose a simboleggiare i progetti e le idee che iniziano a germogliare. All'interno della sala i partecipanti hanno potuto, quindi, visitare un percorso espositivo con alberi luminosi, ognuno dei quali rappresentava un progetto finalista. La serata è stata aperta dagli interventi di Isabella Fumagalli, Head of Territory for Insurance in Italy di BNP Paribas Cardif, e di Kelly Russel, CEO e Direttore Generale della Fondazione Catella, cui sono seguiti altri interventi di esperti del mondo Insurtech che hanno portato la loro esperienza e hanno animato la serata. Tra questi, Andrea Rangone, CEO di Digital360, Gabriele Benedetto, Amministratore Delegato di Telepass e Marco Pozzi, Incubation Manager di ImpactHub. La Final Challenge, condotta per la prima parte da Luca Viscardi e poi da Giovanni Iozzia, Chief Editor di Economy Up, ha visto le start-up sfidarsi con confronti a coppie ed eliminazione diretta. L'evento si è concluso con la premiazione dei progetti vincitori a cura di Isabella Fumagalli e di Andrea Veltri, Chief Marketing Officer & Strategy di BNP Paribas Cardif.   Open-F@b Call4Ideas 2018: i progetti vincitori   1° classificato: MABASTA "Mabasta" è nato nel 2016 come movimento ideato e animato da adolescenti, per contrastare e, possibilmente, prevenire i fenomeni del bullismo e del cyberbullismo con azioni svolte "dal basso", da parte dei ragazzi stessi. È un'impresa sociale che opera principalmente attraverso l'uso consapevole e positivo del web e della tecnologia. Mabasta si esprime e agisce nei linguaggi multimediali e interattivi dei ragazzi in quanto "è" dei ragazzi. Progetto - Innovativo, attuale, d'impatto La mission di Mabasta è quella di prevenire e contrastare il bullismo con azioni "dal basso". Il progetto attraverso il quale viene svolta questa mission prende il nome di "Modello Mabasta" e consiste in una originale serie di consigli e azioni comportamentali che ogni classe e scuola d'Italia può liberamente adottare. È un innovativo protocollo di iniziative svolte quasi esclusivamente dagli studenti e supervisionate dagli adulti (insegnanti e presidi). Il Modello è rivolto a tutti i livelli di scuola, dalle elementari alle superiori. Positive Impact Innovation Il valore aggiunto consiste nel fatto che è, in assoluto, la prima volta che ad occuparsi di bullismo e cyberbullismo sono i giovani stessi, ossia coloro che sono direttamente coinvolti e protagonisti (vittime, "bulli" e "bulle", ma anche gli spettatori). Ad oggi questo forte impatto è stato dimostrato sia dalla quantità di studenti e scuole che hanno interagito con Mabasta negli ultimi due anni, sia dalla grande attenzione dei media e delle istituzioni (Presidente Mattarella, Ministri, Camera, Sanremo, Spiderman, quotidiani, tv e radio nazionali, ...).

Adult leader: Daniele Manni.   2° classificato: LEAF Leaf offre servizi bancari virtuali alle popolazioni vulnerabili che attraversano i confini territoriali. Leaf sostiene le persone che hanno perso l'accesso a tutto ciò che hanno guadagnato, archiviando e trasportando i loro beni attraverso i confini mediante un dispositivo mobile, senza l'utilizzo dello smartphone. Rifugiati e migranti possono viaggiare senza contanti, sapendo che i loro account sono sicuri e accessibili a livello globale. Leaf protegge i risparmi dei clienti attraverso la tecnologia blockchain senza esposizione alla volatilità della criptovaluta, costruendo le basi per un'identità economica completa di dati biometrici, transazioni e risparmi. Progetto - Sicurezza, identità, convenienza Con Leaf un rifugiato crea un account, invia denaro mobile alla piattaforma e può quindi viaggiare senza contanti. Amici e familiari possono inviare denaro all'account del cliente. Una volta sicuri, i contanti vengono prelevati nella nuova valuta locale o utilizzati come garanzia per un microprestito. Il progetto sta partendo nella regione del Nord Kivu in Africa con 150.000 rifugiati provenienti da RDC, Rwanda e Burundi. Leaf guadagna con piccole commissioni di transazione, spread di valuta estera e investendo i risparmi dei clienti durante il trasporto. Positive Impact Innovation Consentendo ai clienti che attraversano i confini di conservare i propri risparmi, Leaf apre la strada alle rimesse internazionali creando, nel contempo, un'identità biometrica ed economica documentata. Leaf consente ai rifugiati di partecipare all'economia formale. Un maggiore accesso ai fondi fornisce sicurezza finanziaria e diminuisce la dipendenza dai Paesi ospitanti e dagli aiuti esteri. Trattare i rifugiati come clienti piuttosto che come beneficenza aiuta a stabilire la fiducia, a garantire la responsabilità e a dare dignità ai rifugiati.

University Distinguished Professor Anil Jain named Fellow by The World Academy of Sciences 

Anil Jain of Michigan State University has been named a Fellow of The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) for a lifetime of perspectives and publications that have inspired students and researchers worldwide. He was one of 46 new fellows elected at the 28th TWAS general meeting in Trieste, Italy, Nov. 27-29.University Distinguished Professor Anil Jain has been named a Fellow of The World Academy of Sciences for inspiring students and researchers worldwide. 

A University Distinguished Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, Jain is being honored for his pioneering contributions to pattern recognition resulting in novel solutions for a rapidly evolving biometrics industry. 

TWAS was founded 35 years ago to increase representation by women and researchers from the world's science- and technology-lagging countries. Jain said it is not typical to have a person from a developed nation be elected a fellow by the worldwide organization. 

Jain was nominated for the honor by Tieniu Tan of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), where he is a professor of computer vision and pattern recognition, CAS deputy secretary-general and director general of the CAS Bureau of International Cooperation. 

Tan called Jain an internationally renowned scholar and educator. “For the past 40 years, he has actively promoted the research topics of pattern recognition, computer vision and biometrics in developing nations through lectures, exchange programs, technical assistance and student and postdoc training. 

“Very few people get elected every year from North America,” he added. “He most certainly deserves the recognition.” 

Co-nominator Sankar Pal, distinguished scientist and former director of the Indian Statistical Institute in Kolkata, India, said Jain’s high quality pioneering research has had an enormous impact on statistical pattern recognition and computer vision. 

“It is evident from a Google scholar h-index of 179, with total citation 185,000,” Pal said. “His IEEE-PAMI publications have made him a role model scientist to many of us and to young researchers in machine learning. All these extra-ordinary achievements made his election to TWAS Foreign Fellowship successful. I am happy to be a part of this endeavor.”

Jain is known around the world for his expertise in biometric recognition, computer vision, and fingerprint-matching technology.

“It has been my honor to work on projects in countries including India, China, and Indonesia," Jain said. “I advised the world’s largest biometrics project, Aadhaar, in India that has enrolled more than 1 billion residents utilizing fingerprints and iris images for de-duplication in India’s social welfare system.” 

Jain also worked on a prototype fingerprint system to recognize infants and toddlers for vaccination tracking in Benin and India. The World Food Program is utilizing the prototype child ID system in field trials in Somalia in an effort to eliminate fraud in food distribution to children.

Anil Jain advised the world's largest biometrics project, Aadhaar, in India that has enrolled more than 1 billion residents utilizing fingerprints and iris images for India's medical system.

He holds one of 17 inaugural appointments to the U.S. Forensic Science Standards Board, a newly developed organization dedicated to identifying and fostering standards and guidelines for the nation’s forensic science community. 

Jain has previously served as a member of the Defense Science Board and the National Academies panels on Whither Biometrics and Improvised Explosive Devices. 

His list of honors is extensive. In 2016, he was elected to the United States National Academy of Engineering (among engineering’s highest honors) and as a Foreign Fellow of the Indian National Academy of Engineering. In 2015, he was named a fellow of the National Academy of Inventors for innovative discovery and technology, significant impact on society, and support and enhancement of innovation.

Jain is also a fellow of the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (IEEE); Association of Computing Machinery (ACM); American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS); International Society for Optics and Photonics Society (SPIE); and International Association of Pattern Recognition (IAPR).

He is a recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship, Humboldt Research Award, Fulbright Scholarship, King-Sun Fu Prize, and W. Wallace McDowell Award. 

Jain is regularly invited to speak at national and internal forums, including the Third Annual ID4AFRICA Conference in Namibia in 2017; the 103rd Indian Science Congress, Information & Communication Science and Technology in India in 2016; the Royal Society meeting on United Kingdom forensics in London, 2015, and the keynote address at the Microsoft Computing in the 21st Century Conference in Beijing, 2014.

TWAS
TWAS is a global science academy based in Trieste, Italy. It was founded in 1983 by a distinguished group of scientists from the developing world who shared a belief that building strength in science and engineering could build the knowledge and skill to address the challenges of hunger, disease and poverty. 

The newest 46 fellows increase the academy's total to 1,267 Fellows from 104 countries – the most countries represented since TWAS’s creation. The academy elected its first fellows ever from Bolivia, the Lao People's Democratic Republic, Libya, Nicaragua, and Zambia. In addition, members were elected from Iraq, Sudan, Turkey, and Uzbekistan. Thirteen of the new fellows are women, who now account for 13 percent of the total membership.

Machine learning masters the fingerprint to fool biometric systems 

Fingerprint authentication systems are a widely trusted, ubiquitous form of biometric authentication, deployed on billions of smartphones and other devices worldwide. Yet a new study from Michigan State University and New York University reveals a surprising level of vulnerability in these systems.CSE Professor Arun Ross and colleagues have learned that partial fingerprint-based systems on smartphones can be compromised by using strategically created fake prints.

Using a neural network trained to synthesize human fingerprints, the research team evolved a fake fingerprint that could potentially fool a touch-based authentication system for up to one in five people. 

Much the way that a master key can unlock every door in a building, these “DeepMasterPrints” use artificial intelligence to match many prints stored in fingerprint databases and could thus theoretically unlock a large number of devices. 

The work builds on earlier research led by Nasir Memon, NYU computer scientist, and Arun Ross, Michigan State University professor of computer science and engineering. They coined the term “MasterPrint” to describe how partial fingerprint-based systems can be compromised by using strategically created fake prints. 

“As fingerprint sensors become smaller in size, it is imperative for the resolution of the sensor to be significantly improved for it to capture additional fingerprint features,” Ross said. “If resolution is not improved, the distinctiveness of a user’s fingerprint will be inevitably compromised. The empirical analysis conducted in this research clearly substantiates this.” 

Devices typically allow users to enroll several different finger images, and a match with any enrolled partial print is enough to confirm identity. Partial fingerprints are less likely to be unique than full prints, and their earlier research demonstrated that enough similarities exist between partial prints to create MasterPrints capable of matching many stored partials in a database. 

In the new study, doctoral student Philip Bontrager and computer scientist Julian Togelius from NYU along with their collaborators, including Memon and Ross, took this concept further, training a machine-learning algorithm to generate synthetic fingerprints as MasterPrints. The researchers created complete images of these synthetic fingerprints, a process that has twofold significance. First, it is yet another step toward assessing the viability of MasterPrints against real devices, which the researchers have yet to test; and second, because these images replicate the quality of fingerprint images stored in fingerprint-accessible systems, they could potentially be used to launch a brute force attack against a secure cache of these images. 

The new study was presented at the IEEE International Conference of Biometrics: Theory, Applications and Systems by Philip Bontrager, the first author of the paper. 

“These experiments demonstrate the need for multi-factor authentication and should be a wake-up call for device manufacturers about the implications of artificial fingerprint attacks,” Bontrager said. 

Use your fingerprint to unlock your smartphone? Can you trust it?This research has applications in fields beyond security. Togelius noted that their Latent Variable Evolution method used here to generate fingerprints can also be used to make designs in other industries – notably game development. The technique has already been used to generate new levels in popular video games. 

A National Science Foundation grant supported the work. The research team also includes postdoctoral fellow Aditi Roy, who was lead author for the original MasterPrint paper.

España participa en una plataforma de búsqueda de niños desaparecidos mediante reconocimiento facial de fotos en la Red #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

En Europa desaparecen cada año aproximadamente 250.000 menores, según datos de la ONG Missing Children Europe. Las cifran se multiplican por 16 cuando se recopilan casos de todo el mundo, según datos de 2014 del International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC).

Por eso, en esta época en la que tantos gobiernos parecen estar centrados únicamente en la vertiente de vigilancia social de los sistemas de reconocimiento facial, es de agradecer que se recuerde el potencial de esta tecnología para localizar a personas desaparecidas.

Hace unos meses, la India anunció que había puesto en marcha, con notable éxito, un proyecto en este sentido, destinado a localizar menores desaparecidos. Pero faltaba una iniciativa internacional. La semana pasada, la ciudad de Córdoba (España) fue testigo de su presentación.

Carlone Humer, directora del ICMEC, daba a conocer GMCNgine en el marco de una conferencia de la Red Mundial de Niños Desaparecidos (a la que pertenece nuestro Centro Nacional de Desaparecidos), explicando que esta plataforma se encuentra en fase de pruebas en varios países (entre ellos España). Según su web,

"Para lograr mejor nuestro objetivo, nos hemos asociado con Amazon Web Services, C5, Motorola Solutions Foundation, Facebook, Web-IQ y Biometrica para comenzar a construir el primer sistema innovador e inteligente de búsqueda y comparación de imágenes centrado específicamente en encontrar niños desaparecidos: el GMCNgine".

¿Cómo funciona el GMCNgine?

Humer explica que, una vez se active la plataforma el año que viene, "se pondrá en marcha un complejo software de reconocimiento que buscará coincidencias de la imagen del niño perdido con otras publicadas en Internet, también en la Red Oscura". En caso de detectar alguna coincidencia, GMCNgine se lo notificaría a la policía.

Woman Walking In Forest

La plataforma hace uso de técnicas de aprendizaje automático para escanear automáticamente la red en busca de imágenes de menores desaparecidos. Además, cuenta también con una funcionalidad de publicidad dinámica que envía alertas personalizadas según la localización geográfica.

Uno de los componentes clave de esta plataforma es Rekognition, el sistema de visión computacional desarrollado por Amazon, y duramente criticado por activistas pro-privacidad (y por trabajadores de la propia compañía). Amazon se ha defendido siempre recurriendo. precisamente, al potencial de su sistema para realizar labores como la que lleva a cabo GMCNgine.

Otra de las compañías que ya ha estado haciendo uso de una tecnología similar (reconocimiento facial para hallar menores en peligro) ha sido Google, pero en su caso no se detectan identidades concretas, al contrario que ocurre con GMCNngine. Según la CEO de ICMEC, Maura Harty, estamos ante un sistema que "provocará un cambio global en las investigaciones de niños desaparecidos".

The Bay Area Merce project has commissioned 10 Bay Area artists from diverse disciplines and backgrounds to study with former Cunningham dancers Rashaun Mitchell and SilasRiener, creating new works of art in response. These works will be presented alongside excerpts of Cunningham repertory by Bay Area dancers. The commissioned artists are Sofia Cordova, Maxe Crandall, Alex Escalante, Christy Funsch, Julie Moon, Jenny Odell, Nicole Peisl, Danishta Rivero, Dazaun Soleyn and Sophia Wang. SFMOMA's Open Space will commission an online series, and convene discursive events in conjunction with the workshops and performances.

TERE O'CONNOR DANCE

Long Run (West Coast premiere)

November 14 - 16

Thursday - Saturday @ 8 p.m.

Tere O'Connor has been making dances for 35 years, touring nationally and internationally. The award-winning choreographer has also created numerous works for other dance companies including the Lyon Opera Ballet and White Oak Dance Project, and a solo for Mikhail Baryshnikov, titled Indoor Man. His many honors include a 2013 Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, a 2009 United States Artist Rockefeller Fellowship and a 1999 Guggenheim Fellowship. In 2014 he was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

ODC Theater will present the West Coast premiere of O'Connor's Long Run (2017), a major new work which "pushes the emotional content of O'Connor's movement to new physical extremes, allowing time-based elements like polyrhythms, velocity and duration to become critical forces, overtaking the eight performers as they struggle to bring their bodies into a state of calm."

ODC Theater participates in the creation of new works through commissioning, presenting, mentorship and space access; it develops informed, engaged and committed audiences; and it advocates for the performing arts as an essential component to the region's economic and cultural development. The Theater is the site of over 120 performances a year involving nearly 1,000 local, regional, national and International Artists.

Since 1976, ODC Theater has been the mobilizing force behind countless San Francisco artists and the foothold for national and international touring artists seeking debut in the Bay Area. The Theater, founded by Brenda Way and currently under the direction of Julie Potter, has earned its place as a cultural incubator by dedicating itself to creative change-makers, those leaders who give the Bay Area its unmistakable definition and flare. Nationally known artists Spaulding Gray, Diamanda Galas, Bill T. Jones, Eiko & Koma, Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE, Karole Armitage, Sarah Michelson, Brian Brooks and John Heginbotham are among those whose first San Francisco appearance occurred at ODC Theater.

          Secret Service will test facial recognition around the White House      Cache   Translate Page      

Like it or not, facial recognition is creeping into more public spaces. The US Secret Service has quietly started testing the technology in and around the White House grounds, including nearby parks and streets, to see if it can "biometrically confirm" the identities of volunteer Secret Service employees. The pilot program will only retain images if there's a match and won't share information with other agencies, but the ultimate goal is to spot known "subjects of interest" (read: potential threats) before there's a run-in with law enforcement.

Apple tiene en mente unos AirPods simétricos y con múltiples sensores biométricos #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Otro día más, otro invento de Apple más, por lo menos en forma de patente. Una nueva idea de Apple nos muestra la posibilidad de unos AirPods simétricos que encajen en ambos oídos y además tengan varios sensores de salud y movimiento. Lejos de los AirPods que tenemos ahora en cuanto a forma y funciones, pero quizás cerca en cuanto a tiempo de lanzamiento.

Según detalla una nueva patente de Apple registrada en la Oficina de Marcas y Patentes de Estados Unidos, están planteándose la idea de unos AirPods simétricos. Esto significa que independientemente en el oído que te pongas uno de los auriculares, encajará. Actualmente cada AirPod va en uno de los oídos debido a su factor forma. Puedes ponértelos al revés, pero no encajarán correctamente en el oído.

Patente

Unos AirPods simétricos no solamente ayudan a que en el día a día sea más cómodo utilizarlos (te quitas la preocupación de saber dónde ponerte cada uno), sino que tiene más ventajas. Por ejemplo, si se nos pierde uno de ellos podemos reemplazarlo fácilmente y quizás a menor coste. Lo curioso de esto es que el diseño de los AirPods tendrá que cambiar para que sean simétricos, ya no tendrán el factor forma clásico que se inició con el iPhone 5 y los EarPods.

Orejas no solamente para escuchar

Por otra parte, vemos en esta patente y en otras tantas de Apple sobre el tema que los AirPods podrían incluir una serie de sensores biométricos. Con esto los AirPods irían más allá de simplemente ofrecer sonido, se implicarían directamente en la recopilación de datos de salud del usuario. Por ejemplo, podrían tener un sensor para medir las pulsaciones mientras realizamos ejercicio. Esto no sería nada descabellado, y de hecho otros auriculares como los Jabra Elite Sport ya lo hacen.

Patente

Según los últimos informes, Apple está preparando unos nuevos AirPods con un nuevo diseño. Se espera que lleguen en 2020. ¿Será esta nueva generación la que traiga el diseño simétrico y sensores en los auriculares? Hay muchas probabilidades.

          Lawsuit filed against Monroe County Sheriff Rick Ramsay regarding federal detainee      Cache   Translate Page      
A Key West man represented by the American Civil Liberties Union brought suit against Monroe County Sheriff Rick Ramsay this week regarding his 12-hour detainment under Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody in April while the man was in the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island.
“Local law enforcement throughout this country has been caught in the middle of a political argument regarding immigration,” said Sheriff Rick Ramsay. “Although I can’t respond as much as I would like on this case given the pending litigation, I always strive for transparency with the public, which all of us here at the Sheriff’s Office serve. This was an unfortunate case of mistaken identity by ICE regarding a subject who was initially in state custody for violating probation for a felony crime of violence against a police officer. My office was notified in writing by ICE that they had a Final Order of deportation signed by a Federal Judge for Mr. Brown. ICE additionally stated in writing they had confirmed Mr. Brown’s identity via biometrics (fingerprints). It is important to also note that when an inmate is held under an ICE matter, I, as Sheriff, do not have the legal authority to release that person. Though the Sheriff’s Office does not investigate immigration matters and while I cannot release detainees under ICE custody, I immediately took action when notified of this matter months ago. I ordered Sheriff’s Office detention deputies to immediately notify ICE of a detainee’s claims of citizenship and to follow up with those claims.”
Mr. Peter Sean Brown, the plaintiff in the lawsuit, was being detained on the state violation of probation matter mentioned above when ICE officials contacted the Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office immediately notified Mr. Brown of the ICE hold approximately three weeks prior to his transfer to a federal detention center in Miami in an effort to give Mr. Brown and his attorney time to resolve the matter. Mr. Brown was detained for about 12 hours total on the ICE matter in the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island, before he was picked up by ICE.
Mr. Brown was detained for approximately 12 hours regarding the ICE matter under the Sheriff’s Office Basic Ordering Agreement with ICE. That Agreement was finalized this year. Under the agreement, the Sheriff’s Office can only hold an ICE detainee for no longer than 48 hours. ICE pays Monroe County $50 a day per ICE detainee as per the Basic Ordering Agreement. The purpose of the payment is to ensure that no local tax dollars are being spent on housing those in ICE custody. The payment goes directly to Monroe County and is not kept as part of the Sheriff’s Office budget.

          Australian Government renews PTE Academic Endorsement      Cache   Translate Page      

[India], Dec 5 (NewsVoir): The Department of Home Affairs has renewed its endorsement of the Pearson Test of English (PTE) Academic in supporting the Australian visa programme.

The Department of Home Affairs has now ensured that PTE Academic will continue to be available to individuals applying for an Australian visa or permanent resident outcome.

With 50 per cent plus growth in the numbers of people registering to take PTE Academic in recent years, Pearson has now opened 5 new Pearson Professional Centres in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth. Pearson has also expanded its network of partner test centres this year to offer to test on campus at the University of Queensland, UNSW, and the Gordon Institute of TAFE in Geelong. These highly secure test centres utilise state-of-the-art security measures including biometric data collection to ensure the security of the testing process.

"PTE Academic is the most secure, reliable, objective and accurate computer-based test of English. Backed by cutting-edge technology, the test is extremely convenient and delivers results faster. The renewed endorsement from the Australian government is the testimony of its highly efficient, unbiased and accurate testing framework," said Vikas Singh, Managing Director, Pearson India.

The Adelaide test centre was officially opened in October and attended by Minister for Trade and Investment Senator Simon Birmingham and South Australia's Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment David Ridgeway MLC, where they were able to view a demonstration of the Pearson Test of English (PTE Academic) test and an interactive tour of the new state-of-the-art centre.

The guests tried their hand at the listening and speaking sections of the test with a few questions similar to those the test takers experience.

The test was created in response to demand for a more accurate, objective, secure and relevant test of English and all 100 per cent computer based.

Pearson's innovative test design, use of automated scoring technology, and secure and easy-to-use test centres make applying for local universities, job opportunities and further study as simple as possible for test-takers of all ages.

PTE Academic is the leading computer-based test of English for study abroad and immigration because we can deliver test results typically within days, in comparison to other English language tests which provide results in a timeframe of 2-3 weeks.

With over 270 test centres around the globe, the PTE Academic test centre network continues to grow. (NewsVoir)

          Apple’s future AirPods might feature a completely overhauled design      Cache   Translate Page      
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the AirPods are the best product I bought from Apple in recent years, and I don’t see myself going back to wired headphones in the near future. I’m even more interested to see what Apple does next with future AirPods models, and I don’t just mean swapping the charging case for one that can be recharged wirelessly, which is the rumored marquee feature of the upcoming AirPods 2. Thankfully, a discovery reveals that Apple is indeed working on making a bunch of more exciting changes to its AirPods, which would make them even easier to use. Found by 9to5Mac, US patent No. 10,149,041 was just awarded to Apple after being filed back in late October 2017. The documentation describes technology that would let Apple create AirPods that are able to recognize which ear they’ve been placed into, and “just work” as expected. I’m probably not the first AirPods owner to have placed EarPods or AirPods the wrong way inside an ear. It’s an easy mistake to make, and you quickly realize they feel uncomfortable. But future AirPods generations may have a symmetrical design, one that would allow each AirPod to determine which ear it's been placed in and adjust accordingly. The AirPods described in the Earbuds with compliant member patent would contain biometric sensors that are able to make certain measurements when touching the skin. Furthermore, sensors would determine whether an AirPod has been inserted in the right or left ear and adapt sound delivery and microphone use accordingly. Also, these new AirPods should fit and feel even better than the first-gen models. Essentially, what Apple is describing in the patent is a technology that would make AirPods as easy to use as the Lightning or USB-C ports. Those connectors and the cables that fit them have symmetrical designs so that the user doesn’t have to consciously decide the right way of inserting the cable into the port. Similarly, a symmetrical AirPod design would let the user place the AirPods inside his or her ears without thinking about which AirPod fits what ear. Like any other Apple patents, there’s no guarantee that Apple’s next AirPods will get these features, but this particular type of innovation does sound like something that Apple would do.
          Amazon and Google are reportedly working on their own AirPods rivals      Cache   Translate Page      
When Apple infamously killed the headphone jack two years ago, it offered users various ways to get used to the change. The iPhone 7 came with Lightning EarPods in the box, as well as a Lightning-to-3.5mm dongle. But Apple also launched the wireless AirPods earphones, which is by far the best way of fixing the problem. I’m not saying that all people would be willing to trade-in their expensive wired headphones for AirPods, or that the AirPods deliver the best audio experience out there. But the AirPods are the most popular wireless headphones right now. Nothing really comes close, and we already have a plethora of alternatives on the market, including headphones that were announced and/or launched well before the AirPods went on sale. Now a new report from a trusted Apple insider says that both Amazon and Google are working on new AirPods rivals. The news comes from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, via 9to5Mac. The new products from Google and Amazon should arrive in the second half of the year, Kuo said in a note:
The new ear-device competition to break out soon: Google and Amazon to be Apple’s main competitors in the AirPod-alike market; Goertek and Unitech to be the sole suppliers for Google and Amazon’s AirPod-alike products. We believe that AirPods’ success has drawn Google and Amazon’s attention and these two companies will launch AirPod-alike products in 2H19. The combined shipments of two brands will likely reach 10–20mn units in 2H19. Goertek (assembly) and Unitech (Rigid-flex PCB) are sole suppliers for Google and Amazon. We think that Google and Amazon are Apple’s main competitors because Google is the most influential brand in the Android ecosystem and Amazon has the best voice assistant service.
The analyst said in an earlier note that Apple will launch AirPods with wireless charging next year, and a brand new AirPods design in 2020. Separately, a new patent reveals Apple has been researching a new design with biometric features. Google already has an AirPods competitor, the Pixel Buds, but they are nowhere near as popular as the AirPods. Amazon, on the other hand, doesn’t make headphones of its own, but it it does make a large number of Echo-branded smart speakers.
