Artificial Intelligence Is Making Increasing Headway In The Enterprise Back Office | #TpromoCom #AI #ArtificialIntelligence #Software | Artificial intelligence is making some of the most remarkable progress in back offices of enterprises of all types.
The back office is where business operations that support the main customer-facing parts of the organization operate. It handles finance and accounting, human resources, supply chain and logistics operations, IT and support technology, and all the other bits and pieces of the enterprise that are needed to make the rest of the operation work smoothly.
The back office is the place where everything happens that doesn’t directly deal with customers. This can be anything from research, scheduling the receipt and making of payments, or management of facilities. Much of these operations involve human activities and business processes that can be improved and expedited through the use of intelligent, AI-enabled technology and systems.

Memoreyes’ Unique Outdoor Video Surveillance Systems are Totally Wireless | #Memoreyes #TpromoCom #WiFi #VideoSurveillance | The use of outdoor WiFi is often unreliable. But the engineers behind Memoreyes’ unique outdoor video safety systems have solved this problem, providing reliable, steady wireless connectivity between the Model 360 and 100 camera systems. No wires means no trenching and lower installation fees. The Camera Housing
The Entrance System Housing contains seven cameras and two to three micro-computers.
Four cameras document cars as they enter, pass by, and depart; and the other three read license plates, including the detection of vehicles that travel the wrong way through an exit.
The All Property System housing is a 12’ tall “candy cane” that houses an HD camera, 2 micro-computers, and the Camera Director System.
The system runs on low voltage power (no 120VAC power install requirements), and it wirelessly connects to a NVR (Network Video Recorder) through Ethernet radios.
Camera housings are weatherproof, including sun shades and are rated from -20°F to 120°F.
Anti-tampering features detect camera-pole shaking, which initiates a local verbal warning through an in-housing speaker. This action also directs other cameras in the vicinity to video the event.
Boon Edam Publishes Whitepaper on Advanced Data Available from High Security Entrances | #TpromoCom #Door #Hardware #WhitePaper | Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, today published a whitepaper for security professionals.
Titled ‘The Advanced Analytics of Security Entrances’, this whitepaper provides information and guidance about the data that can be extracted from security entrances. By delivering important insights into user traffic at the entry and in some cases, predictive metrics on the potential for a breach, this data provides higher value than traditional swinging or sliding doors and access control systems alone.

Gradiant, top 10 in the international competition CVPR 2019 | #TpromoCom #AccessControl #Biometric #Security | The challenge focused on evaluating the best facial recognition technologies to detect spoofing attacks using multimodal information.
The competition was held in the framework of the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) event, to be celebrated next week in California. Gradiant is presenting its work focused on facial anti-spoofing Gradiant did it again. Our biometric technology experts recently participated in ‘Chalearn Workshop on Face Spoofing Attack’ of CVPR 2019, an international competition focused on evaluating the performance of facial biometric systems for spoofing attack detection using multimodal information. The challenge focused on using the latest advances on artificial intelligence research to create robust and accurate anti-spoofing algorithms.
Gradiant’s team ranked worldwide 8th in this competition, with more than 300 biometric technology experts all over the world. The work of our colleagues was in the top 10 teams worldwide and second in the European top, in advance of other leading organizations in facial recognition technology such as Idiap Research Institute or the Institute of Computing Technology (ICT), CAS of China.
The most important machine vision conference in the world
The competition was held within the framework of the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Congress (CVPR 2019), to take place from June 16th to 20th in Long Beach (California). “CVPR is the international reference event in artificial intelligence applied to artificial vision” pointed out Daniel González, director of Multimodal Information at Gradiant.
The team is going to present ‘Deep Anomaly Detection for Generalized Face Anti-Spoofing’ paper in California. It is focused on a facial anti-spoofing proposal for the detection of anomalies by using deep learning techniques without the need to process a whole video, just by using RGB images. With this information, the algorithm we have developed can determine whether the person in the picture is real or it is a spoofing attack.
“Presenting our solution in the CVPR, beyond the position obtained in the competition, is a recognition of the quality of Gradiant’s technologies,” Gonzalez said. This work is going to be exhibited in oral and poster format during the event, and attendees can discover our technology in detail on Monday 17th June from 11:00 to 11:20 hours in space 102 B.
As a result of our expertise in biometric facial recognition solutions, we take advantage of our identity verification solutions to solve competition’s challenge: to detect spoofing attacks using multimodal information (information from three information sources: RGB images, depth and IR).
Accredited international background
It’s not the first time that Gradiant gets a great score in a competition like this. Back in 2017, our facial recognition system obtained the highest score in all test at the IJCB 2017 conference, ahead of companies such as FUJITSU Laboratories LTD (Japan), CpqD and University of Campinas (Brazil) or Idiap Research Institute (Switzerland). In addition our colleagues presented our solutions at the most important biometrics congress, the International Conference on Biometrics (ICB 2019).
With more than ten years of experience in biometric research, Gradiant has been able to transfer secure technologies to sectors such as banking, health and security. Following this philosophy, we make available our biometric technologies for mobile devices in three complementary modalities: face, voice and signature recognition.

U.S. Launched Cyber Attacks on Iran After Drone Shootdown | #TpromoCom #Cyber #Hacker #Drone | U.S. military cyber forces launched a strike against Iranian military computers that crippled computers used to control rocket and missile launches, U.S. officials said Saturday.
US President Donald Trump is said to have secretly authorized US Cyber Command to carry out a retaliatory cyber attack on Iran in response to Iran’s downing of a U.S. surveillance drone.
The action by U.S. Cyber Command was a demonstration of the U.S.’s increasingly mature cyber military capabilities and its more aggressive cyber strategy under the Trump administration.
