Amazon-owned Ring has reportedly been spying on customer camera feeds

Amazon-owned Ring has reportedly been spying on customer camera feeds | #TpromoCom #Camera #VideoSurveillance #Privacy | If you own a Ring doorbell camera system, we’ve got some bad news. The smart home company owned by Amazon, which the Internet retail giant shelled out more than $1 billion to acquire, has apparently been violating its customers’ privacy in a pretty shocking way.

A new report from The Intercept quotes unnamed sources who confirm that engineers and executives at Ring have “highly privileged access” to live customer camera feeds, utilizing both Ring’s doorbells as well as its in-home cameras.

Ring allegedly has a backdoor into their video surveillance system that allows people outside the home to spy on porch cameras as well as those inside the home.

“When security integrators and alarm dealers provide video surveillance at on the exterior of a home, we assume that the manufacturer of the system is as ethical and moralistic as the mission for which it’s installed. To discover that the exterior camera system that we’re using provides unbridled access to inside cameras to company executives and others is something that we would never expect to hear,” says Al Colombo, a well known author in the security industry.

“There are some security professionals who will ignore this news. They will continue to use these products that knowingly call personal security in question. If you’re selling this product, please do the right thing and dig into the issue further to verify 1) that the allegation is true, and 2) how you can mitigate the risk for existing clients as well as new ones.”

Artificial intelligence in detecting ovarian cancer and predicting flu

Artificial intelligence used to detect women with deadliest ovarian cancer | #TpromoCom #AI #Health #Cancer | AI in predictive health care appears to have no limits. Here are two examples where it can save lives and predict illnesses.

Technique picks out worst forms of disease that would not be recognized by conventional methods. As you can imagine, there are some forms of cancer that cannot easily be detected by the usual means that doctors use. One of the most common methods of detecting cancer involves an analysis of white to red blood cells within the circulatory system. At the same time, knowing which kind of cancer involves is critical to a successful cure. –Al Colombo, Security eNews

In research published in Nature Communications, the researchers used their computer tool to test tissue samples from more than 500 women with ovarian cancer. In total the AI scanned nearly 150 million cells. –Gabbatiss, Science Correspondent with the Independent.

Harnessing Multiple Data Streams And Artificial Intelligence To Better Predict Flu | #TpromoCom #AI #Flu #Health | Influenza is highly contagious and easily spreads as people move about and travel, making tracking and forecasting flu activity a challenge.

While the CDC continuously monitors patient visits for flu-like illness in the U.S., this information can lag up to two weeks behind real time. A new study, led by the Computational Health Informatics Program (CHIP) at Boston Children’s Hospital, combines two forecasting methods with machine learning (artificial intelligence) to estimate local flu activity. Results are published today in Nature Communications.

When the approach, called ARGONet, was applied to flu seasons from September 2014 to May 2017, it made more accurate predictions than the team’s earlier high-performing forecasting approach, ARGO, in more than 75 percent of the states studied. This suggests that ARGONet produces the most accurate estimates of influenza activity available to date, a week ahead of traditional healthcare-based reports, at the state level across the U.S. To read the remainder of this informative news article, click here.

Verint to acquire Foresee

Verint to acquire Foresee | #TpromoCom #Security #Business #Acquisition | Verint Systems Inc. has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Foresee, a leading cloud voice of the customer (VoC) vendor. The Verint-Foresee combination aims to create the market’s most comprehensive omnichannel cloud VoC portfolio available—an analytics-rich offering that will allow organisations to better measure and understand customer experiences and prioritize the improvements that will have the greatest business impact.

The acquisition will add Foresee’s causal modeling, predictive analytics and benchmarking to Verint’s existing omnichannel VoC portfolio. The combination will create a new standard for customer experience (CX), marketing and operational executives who want a unified view of the voice of their customers across digital, voice, surveys, email, chat and social media. Both Verint and Foresee customers will benefit from an innovative vision, backed by the resources and commitment to building the next generation of VoC solutions for organizations looking to elevate their customer experience.

According to Verint, leading industry analysts agree that voice of the customer solutions are required to gain a complete view of the customer experience. Without this focus, organisations are challenged to truly understand the customer journeys and sentiments that help measure CX impact. Analysts emphasise that CX stakeholders inside organisations must transition from channel centric activities to holistic programmes that manage customer interactions in full context across all touchpoints and channels to drive better business outcomes.
