Deep Learning Will Empower Not Replace Humans, Says Artificial Intelligence World Expert Edgar Perez

Edgar Perez, author of The AI Breakthrough, Knightmare on Wall Street and The Speed Traders and former strategy consultant with McKinsey, partnering with Terrapinn Training in 3-Day Masterclass in Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence.

London, UK — According to The New York Times, perhaps no company embodies the anxieties and hopes around automation from Artificial Intelligence applications better than Amazon. Many people, including President Donald Trump, blame the company for destroying traditional retail jobs by enticing people to shop online. At the same time, the company’s eye-popping growth has turned it into a hiring machine, with an unquenchable need for computer science graduates and entry-level warehouse workers.

Amazon’s global workforce is three times larger than Microsoft’s and 18 times larger than Facebook’s. Only a few weeks ago Amazon took the unusual step of announcing it wanted a second home outside Seattle with up to 50,000 new jobs, starting what is sure to be a fierce bidding war to lure Amazon and the thousands of high-paying jobs it will bring to town using a combination of tax breaks and other sweeteners.

The plan is the latest surprise from Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s chief executive, who has reshaped Seattle in the more than two decades since he founded Amazon. Bezos overshadows even Bill Gates, the former Microsoft chief executive who put the Seattle area on the map as a destination for tech companies; Amazon is now the biggest corporate employer in Seattle, and it occupies 19 percent of the prime office space in the city, more than any other employer in a big American city, The Seattle Times reported.

Amazon is on the forefront of automation, finding new ways of getting robots to do the work once handled by employees. For Edgar Perez, author of The AI Breakthrough, Knightmare on Wall Street and The Speed Traders, the advancement of artificial intelligence will increase productivity, create new demand from current and new customers and, ultimately, create completely new categories of jobs. “Just look at the automotive industry,” says Perez; he is a well-known international futurist, artificial intelligence and deep learning speaker who currently offers the world’s first Deep Learning programs for Fortune 500 firms and private equity groups.

Perez, author of Knightmare on Wall Street and The Speed Traders, is a recognized futurist, keynote speaker and director of programs targeted at board members, chief executive officers and senior executives looking for new ways to gain and maintain a competitive business advantage.

ABOUT THE AI BREAKTHROUGH
Artificial intelligence has been referred as the general ability of a digital computer or computer-controlled robot to perform tasks commonly associated with intelligent beings. The term has indeed been frequently applied to the project of developing systems endowed with the intellectual processes characteristic of humans, such as the ability to reason, generalize, discover meaning, or learn from past experiences. Since the development of the digital computer in the 1940s, it has been demonstrated that computers can be programmed to carry out very complex tasks with great proficiency. Still, despite continuing advances in computer processing speed and memory capacity, there are as yet no programs that can match human flexibility over wider domains or in tasks requiring much everyday knowledge.

In 1945, British logician and computer pioneer Alan Turing predicted that computers would one day play very good chess. Just over 50 years later, in 1997, Deep Blue, a chess computer built by IBM beat the reigning world champion, Garry Kasparov, in a six-game match. Since then, a number of programs have attained the performance levels of human experts and professionals in performing certain specific tasks, so that artificial intelligence is now found in applications as diverse as medical diagnosis, computer search engines, and voice or handwriting recognition.

Indeed, deep learning has enabled many practical applications of machine learning and by extension the overall field of artificial intelligence. Deep learning breaks down tasks in ways that makes all kinds of machine aids seem possible, even likely. Driverless cars, better image recognition, even better movie recommendations, are all here today. Artificial intelligence is the present and the future.

The AI Breakthrough will provide a comprehensive review of the artificial intelligence breakthroughs of today and tomorrow and how these advancements will impact businesses and the human race in general for years to come.

Cyber Security Risk Expert to Provide Key Insights for CEOs and Management Teams in London and Dubai

Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders and Knightmare on Wall Street and former strategy consultant with McKinsey, partnering with Terrapinn Training in 3-Day Masterclass Cybersecurity to bring key insights for government officials, CEOs and board members on cyber security.

London, UK — Mr. Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders and Knightmare on Wall Street, is addressing senior government officials and executives from Europe and Asia at the 3-Day Masterclass in Cybersecurity organized by Terrapinn Training in London and Dubai. Perez is a well-known international futurist and cyber keynote speaker who currently offers Cybersecurity Due Diligence and Awareness Training services for Fortune 500 firms and private equity groups.

As information technology becomes ever more complex and Internet usage increasingly widespread, cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly important and business-critical field. Unfortunately, most organizations are not prepared to handle cybersecurity threats. In fact, 66% of IT and security professionals say that their firms are unprepared to recover from a cyberattack. A key example of this unpreparedness is the fact that many of the companies impacted by the recent WannaCry attack didn’t install critical updates into their Windows infrastructure that had been released by Microsoft back in March.

Perez’s workshops bring CEOs, board members and top executives up to speed on the most recent and battle-tested approaches to protect their companies’ valuable information and intellectual property from prying eyes of hackers and competitors, and leverage their cyber success in both cultivating stronger relationships with current and new clients and safeguarding the interests of all stakeholders, partners and employees.

Perez, author of Knightmare on Wall Street and The Speed Traders, is a recognized futurist, keynote speaker and director of programs targeted at board members, chief executive officers and senior executives looking for new ways to gain and maintain a competitive business advantage.

VTOL AEROSPACE to Expand Product Portfolio with New VTOL UAVs Called Converticopters™

VTOL AEROSPACE (formerly Elytron Aircraft LLC) is introducing a new line of UAV products called Converticopters, adding unmanned versions to its manned convertiplanes.

Hayward, CA, USA — Since its creation in 2013, VTOL AEROSPACE has made extensive use of flying proof-of-concepts at different scales, going from compact unmanned test vehicles up to a 28-ft manned prototype.

Putting these test vehicles through their paces, meaning flying them in real conditions at a runway, has provided invaluable engineering data and experience, confirming the flight qualities of its patented technology, which blends the features of a tilt-wing inside a fixed box-wing.

The conclusion of a deep-dive evaluation of this planform was completed using a 20-lb scale model unmanned aircraft and applying a battery of tests, including comprehensive CFD simulations in and out of ground effect (IGE/OGE), high-speed tests on moving rig, wind tunnel tests conducted at NASA Ames, and free-air test flights. This has led to the collection and compilation of 100s of performance data points, allowing the company to fully qualify the airframe after such an extended evaluation phase and getting it ready for scale production.

VTOL AEROSPACE is excited to announce the launch of the UAV Converticopter™ line (CVC), ideal for several markets that require both VTOL support and also long-endurance flights with the ability to fly in any type of weather and wind conditions, such as Air Surveillance, Border Patrol, Search & Rescue etc…

The airframe was optimized for this typical flight pattern:
– Vertical take-off with considerable payload
– Self-stabilizing and self-rectifying hover flight transition
– Rapid and safe conversion to conventional flight
– Adaptive flight patterns based on the selected mission, including low-speed loitering.
– Extended flight time due to a low-drag, high-lift airframe
– Ability to land vertically any time in midst and/or at the end of the mission.

It was verified and corroborated through systematic simulations and flight tests, that the production airframe would benefit from a L/D ratio above 15.0 at loitering speeds, allowing very efficient and extended flight time.

The company highlights the features of a compact Converticopter version (CVC96) with a wingspan of 8-ft, allowing loiter flights up to 1.5 hour, only on battery power alone, and beyond 5 hours with an electric hybrid power plant. Larger payload sizes and longer flight times may be achieved by scaling up the airframe, and its power source, up to 40 ft in wingspan. Additional CVC models with various wingspans may be offered by manufacturing partners, who are to subscribe to a manufacturing license agreement.

VTOL AEROSPACE recognizes the need to support new emerging markets with specifically tailored UAVs, using custom-built payloads, and has created a dedicated sales channel that will be led by newly appointed Director of Marketing and Sales, Craig Davidenko, a Drone Marketing Industry Veteran.

We invite interested parties to contact VTOL AEROSPACE, visit our new website at http://www.vtolaerospace.com or check our extended flight videos on our YouTube Flight Videos Vault (http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4xGvaVLibCcw4knIz8ItxQ/videos).

Fulham HotSpot Constant Power Programmable LED Emergency Driver Recognized for Innovation in 2017 IES Progress Report

Newest HotSpot LED Emergency Lighting Driver Listed in Illuminating Engineering Society Report for Unique Programmability, Monitoring, and Diagnostics.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, today announced that the company’s HotSpot Constant Power Programmable LED Emergency Driver has been included by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) in the 2017 Progress Report. Being listed in the 2017 IES Progress Report is a distinct honor since the annual Report showcases technically significant advancements in the art and science of lighting.

The driver was selected because of a number of innovations that were identified by the IES Progress Committee, including:

• The first constant power LED emergency driver to feature programmable power output capability;
• The first emergency driver with an integrated life data recorder to log time in standby mode; time in emergency mode, emergency events, and temperature;
• The first emergency driver to use an integrated test switch bicolor indicator light (red and green) for status and self-diagnostics; and
• Meeting the CEC Title 20 requirements for small battery chargers, as well as the specifications of the European Eco Directive.

“Inclusion in the annual IES Progress Report is a special honor since selection is made by the engineering community and is based on superior engineering, demonstrating that Fulham is truly advancing lighting technology and innovation,” said Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing for Fulham. “At Fulham we listen to our customers, and our R&D team is committed to developing products with functionality that addresses their needs and advances the state of illumination.”

Fulham first introduced Constant Power Emergency LED drivers in 2016 with a series of cULus-classified models that quickly gained in popularity due to their ease of installation and compliance with local emergency lighting standards. The new programmable model is designed for luminaire manufacturers looking to offer emergency capability. It uses LiFePO4 batteries to deliver a minimum of 90 minutes of power in the event of an outage, and can be programmed for lower light output to extend emergency run times.

The HotSpot Constant Power Programmable LED Emergency Driver is an example of Fulham’s growing line of clever, programmable lighting products. Programmability allows a luminaire manufacturer to stock a single driver that can be customized for different applications. For example, the HotSpot driver uses a default setting for the battery to deliver maximum output for 90 minutes, e.g. a 10W battery delivers 10W of output. It also can be programmed to extend run time, such as programming a 10W battery to run at 5W to double emergency illumination time. This means the same HotSpot device can be used in a commercial space where regulations require 90 minutes of egress lighting, or in a high-rise building that may require longer emergency illumination times.

In addition to Title 20, the HotSpot Constant Power Programmable LED Emergency Driver complies with international safety regulations, including cULus, CE and ENEC. All HotSpot LED emergency drivers come with Fulham’s 5-year warranty.

While “The Cure for All Diseases” may be a catchy title, there is much more to it than just that

The Hulda Clark Parasite Zapper has been around for many years, yet, you may have never even heard of it or you may have heard some negative comments from sites that are paid to suppress information.

Horton, AL, August 17, 2017 – The Hulda Clark Parasite Zapper has been around for many years, yet, you may have never even heard of it or you may have heard some negative comments from sites that are paid to suppress information. You may have not heard of the Rife machine nor of the Lahkovsky MultiWave Oscillator, as well as many other devices because the medical profession and the FDA work hard to keep people from leaqrning about these devices, even to the point of destroying historically significant objects. There is also a continuous stream if lies and misinformation claiming that things such as colloidal silver do not work.

Ever since the first efforts in the 1750’s, the first experimenters discovered that even low levels of electricity could kill the newly discovered microbes such as bacteria, protozoa, and fungi and resultantly could stop many diseases. The medical industry was extremely against such use because it was not profitable to them. One of these early experimenters was John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist Church. Over a period of time, he set up and operated 3 clinics in London that used mostly electricity combined with natural therapies to treat and heal the poor. The clinics were such a resounding success that the medical authorities tried extensively to shut them down.

Since the time of John Wesley, there has been a stream of electric and electronic products that have been offered to help relieve pain and suffering, as well for fighting disease and illness in the human body. The FDA has stepped in at every turn to suppress the products in favor of expensive and profitable medicines. In the 1870’s a product called the Medical Electric Battery was introduced and was available up into the 1930’s when the FDA stepped in and shut them down. There were even more advanced products such as the Rife machine that has a long list of successes claimed by users. Not only has the FDA forced these products off of the market, they have suppressed the information about these and even destroyed the original products whenever there have been able to get away with it.

Because of the resistance against this technology, Hulda Clark has been called a quack among other things,

What can be done? First, contact your congressman or congresswoman and make them aware that the FDA is using its power to suppress potentially life-saving technology. There are thousands of signatures and comments at http://paradevices.com/petition_link.html where you can add yours. Lastly, contact the FDA and let them know that this technology needs to be made available for the medical industry to use as well as for private individuals to use on themselves. Currently, this technology is used to kill microbes in water such as in cooling towers and backyard ponds. Similar technology is use to kill microbes in juices and drinks as well as elsewhere in the food industry.

Why should people die just because the medical industry does not want to allow this type of product for the sake of their own profits. The right to live is a basic human right and no one should be denied access to this type of product when life is at risk but that is the very reason that the FDA uses to justify preventing public access to these products. Their rule is that if it can save lives, it must be subjected to the most stringent and expensive regulations and requirements.

Notice: This parasite zapper is currently sold only for the experimental use of killing microbes in water. Any other usage is considered to be off-label and such usage is at the discretion of the user. This is not a Medical device and is not represented as such. The information above is posted only to highlight the potential of such use and to create public awareness.

Collavate DLP Offers Security to Encompass all Levels of G Suite

Affordable Data Loss Prevention Solutions for Google Drive Tools Now Available

San Jose, CA, August 16, 2017 – According to Gartner CISO, a security and risk assessment organization, data loss prevention is a top priority of businesses today. As corporate data has an increasingly high risk of being targeted and breached, Collavate DLP (Data Loss Prevention) has stepped up to offer Google Drive security protection for all Google Drive users.

“With online communication more prevalent than ever and corporate applications being so popular, it is imperative to keep the information within the applications from getting into the wrong hands,” stated a Collavate DLP representative. “Google Drive security has been limited and costly in the past because it was only available for the more expensive G Suite Enterprise. We are pleased to introduce Collavate DLP which can be used with G Suite Basic and G Suite Business as well.”

Google Drive is a popular tool that many businesses use for real-time collaboration and data storage. However, since Drive lacks data loss prevention tools, the breach of information can easily devastate a business.

Until now, Google Drive users have been forced to go with the elite, most expensive collaboration package (G Suite Enterprise) if they wished to invoke Google Drive security measures. Collavate DLP now makes it possible to have data loss prevention services with any Google Drive platform, including G Suite Basic and G Suite Business.

It is estimated that the cost of cybercrime worldwide will top two trillion dollars by 2019, triple the estimated cost reported in 2015. Gartner CISO has identified risks imposed by point-of-sale devices, flash drive, mobile devices, file servers, databases, PCs and virtual servers. Potential access points include wirelines, wireless devices, VPNs and other similar avenues. Source codes, documents of product design, financial documents, customer data and other top-security data are all at risk of being breached.

It is increasingly imperative to have Google Drive security in place because the use of the collaboration tool often includes storage of critical information such as medical records, social security numbers, and credit card information. In many cases, just one breach may cripple a company.  Furthermore, upstanding businesses desire to be trustworthy with their employee and customer information.

Collavate DLP provides security detection in real-time, a key feature. The program also predefines keywords in files in order to monitor activity on viewing trends, another important measure. Rule setting and regular expressions are also defined for even stronger security.

All Google Drive suite editions, even SMB’s, are eligible to take advantage of Collavate DLP. Introducing Collavate DLP to the market serves as a welcome relief to collaborators who are aware of the the importance of cybersecurity.

Fulham Adds Universal Voltage LED Canopy Retrofit Kit

New Universal Voltage Canopy Retrofit Kit Features Broad Power Specs and Versatile Design for Easy Replacement of Indoor/Outdoor Lighting.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, has introduced a new Universal Voltage LED Canopy Retrofit Kit to illuminate locations such as service stations, parking garage, entryways, walkways, and other areas where LED lighting presents a cost-effective alternative to metal halide and other types of traditional light sources.

The new Universal Voltage LED Canopy Retrofit Kit offers a high-power factor with low total harmonic distortion (THD) and can be used for installations requiring 120V to 227V, making it a good replacement option for applications with up to 250W HID currently installed. Suitable for both damp and dry locations, the kit also features integrated thermal management for optimal performance and reliability, and has been tested to operate at temperatures ranging from -4 to 113 degrees Fahrenheit. The Universal Voltage LED Canopy Retrofit Kit uses optical lenses to direct the beam at a 160-degree angle, making it ideal for parking garage, walkways and perimeter lighting.

Fulham’s retrofit kits are designed to offer the same aesthetics as the original fixture, but with a lower cost to retrofit resulting in lower power consumption and longer fixture performance. For example, the Universal Voltage LED Canopy Retrofit Kit features a 65W to 15W programmable driver for lower power consumption, and has five programmable settings for multiple lumen output options (preset by Fulham at the time of order). The Universal Voltage LED Canopy Retrofit Kit is UL classified for field installation and normally can be installed in 5 to 10 minutes per kit. The kit also is DesignLights Consortium Qualified in the category “Outdoor Retrofit Kit – Mid Output,” with a primary use designation of parking garage retrofit kits.

“The retrofit market for our LED modules continues to grow, and we are seeing increased demand for high-power LED lighting kits,” said Edwin Reyes, Product Director, LED Light Sources, for Fulham. “We designed the latest Universal Voltage LED Canopy Retrofit Kit to be especially versatile so our customers can stock fewer units, and installers have an all-purpose retrofit product that is reliable and easy to install.”

Fulham’s Universal Voltage LED Canopy Retrofit Kit offers a variety of features that make it an attractive replacement for canopy fixtures, including:

• The kit is fully assembled with plug-and-play connection between the LED light source and the LED driver.
• The unit can be mounted directly to the luminaire pan or reflector, or the driver can be mounted away from the module.
• The 65W retrofit system power has a programmable driver with up to 8,700 system lumens max.
• Dimming from 0 to 10V and is compatible with most sensors.
• The kit is smaller and lighter that traditional canopy luminaires, measuring 9.06 inches wide and 1.26 inches wide, and weighing 3.1 pounds.
• Optical lenses are used to direct light levels at 60~80 degrees (more than 30 percent of total flux), and 70~80 degrees (less than 25 percent of total flux).
• UL classified for field installation, typically in less than 10 minutes.

Fulham Joins CABA Together to Promote Intelligent Lighting as Part of Next Generation Building Management

CABA membership gives Fulham another conduit to advance global standards for smart lighting as part of building automation systems.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, has joined the Continental Automated Building Association (CABA), a global not-for-profit group dedicated to the advancement of connected home and intelligent building technology. Fulham has been developing standalone intelligent lighting management systems to supplement the company’s comprehensive line of LED lighting products. Participating in CABA will give the company a voice in the development and application of open standards for building management, especially standards for intelligent lighting controls.

While actively developing its own lighting control, Fulham also recently expanded its lighting control offering with the acquisition of Control Network Solutions (CNS), including the elitedali™ smart lighting control and management system based on the Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) lighting communications standard. Fulham recognizes a growing international demand for smart lightning solutions such as elitedali, which provides total control over LED fixtures including reducing input current, managing output to optimize LED longevity, adjusting lighting to dim at a constant level, and adjusting power output to accommodate different light sources. DALI is only one of the lighting and device control standards that are shaping intelligent lighting platforms.

“The future of lighting lies in standardized systems controls, and CABA membership gives Fulham an opportunity to listen to the voices of end users as we develop products for the next generation of intelligent lighting,” said Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing and Business Development for Fulham. “It also gives Fulham access to the latest building management initiatives as well as innovators who are shaping the future of building automation. Joining with CABA gives us a more active role in shaping standards for next-generation intelligent lighting and building technologies.”

Fulham also has been working with Tvilight, a Dutch technology company that develops sensors, wireless controls, and lighting management software to deliver programmable, wireless outdoor LED lighting systems. Using Fulham’s WorkHorse LED outdoor drivers with Tvilight’s real-time broadband mesh network applies an Internet of Things (IoT) approach to lighting control. Fulham’s outdoor LED drivers are fully integrated with SkyLite, Tvilight’s intelligent wireless control system, and also are compatible with CityManager, Tvilight’s cloud-based Smart City management platform.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome Fulham into CABA as our latest representative in intelligent lighting,” said Ronald J. Zimmer, CABA President and CEO. “One of our most crucial functions is to educate industry stakeholders about the potential of connected buildings and the potential of interoperability as part of building controls. Lighting controls continue to be a major concern for many of our members and we anticipate Fulham will assume an important role in advancing the conversation around intelligent lighting.”
