AURAK Actuates with UTA



Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates-Monday 24 June 2019 [ AETOS Wire ]

The American University of Ras Al Khaimah (AURAK) Department of International Programs and Partnerships (DIPP) hosted a visit for a University of Texas-Arlington (UTA) delegation consisting of Dr. Curtis Andressen, the Vice Provost, and Dr. Bahram Khalili, the Associate Professor of Instruction, to discuss the possible expansion of their previously established agreement to include the Computer Science field and student and faculty exchange opportunities.

Initial cooperation agreement between UTA and AURAK began in 2013 with the establishment of the Bachelor of Science Transfer Articulation in Civil and Mechanical Degree, better known as the ABD Plan or the Dual Degree. The degree plan enabled students enrolled in either institution to acquire an additional Bachelor of Science, and details of this agreement were updated in 2014. One of many of UTA’s fields of specialization concerns robotics and artificial intelligence, so this particular site visit was to discuss extending their collaboration to encompass the fields of Computer Science and further solidify student exchange opportunities.

The visit began with a campus tour and then met AURAK’s Vice President of Academic Affairs and Student Success and Provost, Professor Stephen Wilhite, and the Associate Provost, Dr. Denise Gifford. Professor Stephen expressed optimism concerning an agreement with UTA.  Specifically, Professor Stephen described AURAK’s interest in developing new programs and concentrations in the field of Computer Science, including new options in artificial intelligence and robotics.  Therefore, AURAK would welcome agreements that pave the way for AURAK students to pursue graduate work in Computer Science at UTA.  Furthermore, Professor Stephen noted that establishing research collaborations between faculty at AURAK and UTA would be beneficial to AURAK in multiple ways.  First, such collaborations would contribute to the research productivity of AURAK faculty, and collaborative research would help in publicizing to AURAK students the opportunities for graduate study at UTA.  Also, such collegial relationships would potentially provide a basis for UTA faculty to provide expertise to AURAK in designing curriculum for new programs and concentrations in Computer Science and in engineering disciplines.  Finally, the Provost observed that AURAK’s collaboration with a leading research university in the U.S., such as UTA, would be highly advantageous in seeking externally funded research projects.

The UTA delegation also met with upper administration and with the President, Professor Hassan Hamdan Al Alkim, who was pleased by the amending of the agreement with UTA, “The University of Texas - Arlington is an institution based on quality education and rigor. A deeper collaboration will allow our students more substantial opportunities.” Their trip concluded with meeting upper level Computer Science students.

AURAK is an independent, public, state-owned, non-profit, coeducational institution of higher learning that offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in comprehensive academic programs based on the North American model and the cultural characteristics of the Gulf region. Its undergraduate programs combine a strong grounding in the major subject with a broad general education, and its graduate programs prepare students for the demands of professional life. The institution is committed to the highest standards of teaching, research, ethics, and service to the community, preparing its graduates to be knowledgeable, thoughtful, creative, and responsible individuals, and it is accredited through the UAE’s Ministry of Education (MOE) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).

UTA is an educational leader in the North Texas region committed to nurturing minds within an environment that values excellence, ingenuity, and diversity and producing the lifelong learners and critical thinkers the global community demands. It offers more than 180 bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree programs to nearly 57,000 students globally, catering to working professionals, as well as junior- and senior-level undergraduate courses in engineering, nursing, business, and other areas.

Lumileds Highlights Environmental, Health and Safety Milestones in First Sustainability Report

2018 Sustainability Report summarizes company’s sustainability agenda, goals and progress in building programs that contribute to a low-carbon economy



SAN JOSE, Calif. -Saturday 22 June 2019 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Lumileds, a global leader in innovative lighting solutions, today released its 2018 Sustainability Report, which details the company’s progress in supporting the transition to a worldwide low-carbon economy. In the report, Lumileds highlights how its lighting solutions are contributing to positive changes in energy usage, safety, and health and wellness, supporting the company’s commitment to making the world safer, better and more beautiful with light. Lumileds follows a formalized sustainability agenda that identifies specific priorities and tracks progress. For example, in its global LED and automotive lighting operations, the company recently surpassed its 2020 operational goals relative to 2015 including:

    41% reduction in emissions (20% goal)
    25% reduction in energy consumption (20% goal)
    25% reduction in water usage (20% goal)

The sustainability objectives are based on creating value for customers through sustainable innovations, reducing the environmental footprint of the company’s operations, driving improvements in the supply chain toward compliance with the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) and preventing injuries. Lumileds has aligned its sustainability efforts with external frameworks such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and identified four SDGs to which it can make the most significant contribution: climate action, good health and well-being, affordable and clean energy, and responsible consumption and production.

Lumileds’ development of energy-efficient, low-carbon LED lighting technologies supports the urgent action to combat climate change. A 2017 market analysis by IHS Markit estimated that Lumileds LEDs reduced total carbon dioxide equivalent emissions of lighting globally by 39 million metric tons – equivalent to shutting down 11 coal fired power plants in the United States. In addition to the 41% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions, three sustainability programs at the Singapore facility reduced the impact of perfluorinated compounds on the environment by 90%.

“Maintaining a safe environment for our worldwide employees is the highest priority. Lumileds’ commitment to and strong performance in occupational health and safety is demonstrated by our low injury rates, as shown in the report. In the area of hazardous substances, we are on track to phase out in our consumer products the use of all polyvinylchloride (PVC) and non-regulated bromide flame retardants (BFR), substances that are implicated in detrimental effects on human health, by 2023. As of 2018, 87% of Lumileds consumer products are PVC and BFR free,” said Jan van Rompay, Director of Sustainability at Lumileds.

Quality and reliability are hallmarks of Lumileds’ business. By the end of this year, all Lumileds facilities worldwide will be ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007 certified. Lumileds also certified against the International Automotive Quality Management Systems standards – IATF16949:2016, which outlines the requirements on designing, developing, manufacturing, installing and servicing automotive products.

Lumileds supports good health and well-being with innovations like the VisionPlus headlamps for automobiles which increase road visibility by 60%, compared to standard minimum legal requirements in low beam test results. The company is also developing light source technology for digital lighting, which can enable next-generation high resolution headlighting systems as well as further improving the seeing, sensing and being seen functions of automated driving systems—all of which help to increase road safety and driver comfort.

Study from Project Management Institute Identifies Six AI Technologies Impacting Project Professionals



PHILADELPHIA -Tuesday 18 June 2019 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Project Management Institute (PMI) today released its 2019 Pulse of the Profession® In-Depth Report: AI Innovators: Cracking the Code on Project Performance. The report provides an in-depth look at how artificial intelligence (AI) is impacting organizations and the project management profession. Findings reveal that AI disruption is happening and at a large scale: 81 percent of respondents report their organization is being impacted by AI technologies; 37 percent say adopting AI technologies is a high priority for their organization; and project professionals say they expect the proportion of the projects they manage using AI will jump from 23 to 37 percent over the next three years.


This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190617005558/en/

These insights from a survey of 551 project management practitioners globally show that the presence of AI technologies will continue to grow, requiring shifts in how projects are managed and how organizations implement strategy. The report identifies six AI technologies that are impacting organizations globally. The three AI technologies currently impacting the greatest number of organizations are:

    Knowledge-based systems: Understands the context of the data being processed, helping support human learning and decision making.
    Machine learning: Analyzes data to build models by detecting patterns, yielding improved decision making with minimal human intervention.
    Decision management: Creates an intelligent process or set of processes based on rules and logic to automate decision making.

Over the next three years, project professionals expect the impact of these AI technologies to grow:

    Expert systems: Emulates and mimics human intelligence, skills or behavior in a particular field, topic or skill.
    Deep learning: Builds, trains and tests neural networks that predict outcomes and/or classify unstructured data based on probabilities.
    Robotic process automation: Mimics and automates human tasks to support corporate processes.

In a recent Pulse of the Profession® report, PMI called for organizations to bolster their Project Management Technology Quotient (PMTQ), which is a way of evaluating an organization’s ability to manage and integrate technology based on the needs of the organization or the project at hand. As organizations increasingly adopt AI technologies, having a strong PMTQ will be essential.

“What this report shows is that the time is now to start thinking about how organizations can leverage AI technologies to achieve project success,” said Michael DePrisco, vice president of global solutions at PMI. “Since project professionals are largely responsible for helping to implement change, they will play a critical role in influencing the adoption of these technologies in their organizations. Based on PMI research, we know that organizations with a high Project Management Technology Quotient (PMTQ) understand that capturing the value of AI will take more than simply rolling out the technology. It will require a new mindset, a learning culture and support from the top to establish an organizational infrastructure that leads to success.”

In fact, research by Accenture finds that most visionary organizations apply five key principles to their AI investments. Called the MELDS principles, they call on organizations to:

    Encourage the right Mindset
    Promote Experimentation
    Support actively involved Leadership
    Incorporate Data into strategy
    Cultivate new Skills

Organizations who embrace these five principles are called AI Innovators and are more likely than organizations that don’t embrace any of the principles (AI Laggards) to establish an organizational infrastructure that leads to project success. According to Pulse® data, there is a distinct payoff for organizations leading the way with AI. AI Innovators outperform AI Laggards on several key project metrics:

    Better on-time delivery: AI Innovators report they delivered 61 percent of their projects on time, versus 47 percent for AI Laggards.
    Superior benefits realization: AI Innovators report 69 percent of their projects realized 95 percent or more of their business benefits, compared to 53 percent of projects for AI Laggards.
    Higher ROI: AI Innovators report 64 percent of their projects met or exceeded their original ROI estimates, versus 52 percent of projects for AI Laggards.

Successful implementation of AI technology requires organizations to shift their priorities. Not only is it important to look at PMTQ as a measure of preparedness, but also how well an organization adheres to the MELDS principles. This will be especially important as more and more AI technologies are integrated into operations in the coming years.

Good Call: Vodafone Joins SeeHer

Vodafone joins Association of National Advertisers' (ANA) leading global movement for gender equality

Brings GEM™ groundbreaking bias-measuring metric to ads

CANNES, France-Tuesday 18 June 2019 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE) -- International telecom and technology service provider Vodafone Group plc is the newest member of SeeHer, the Association of National Advertisers’ leading global movement for gender equality in advertising and media. Vodafone joins a powerful collective of 1,000-plus top brands that control $100-plus billion in worldwide ad spend.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190616005037/en/

Vodafone has mobile operations in 25 countries, partners with mobile networks in 41 more, and has fixed broadband operations in 19 markets. Vodafone has extensive experience in connectivity, convergence, and the Internet of Things and champions mobile financial services and digital transformation in emerging markets.

“Eliminating bias in ads and content is not just a U.S. challenge, it is a global issue,” said Bob Liodice, chief executive officer of the ANA. “We are delighted that Vodafone has joined our SeeHer movement to help create a global environment where women and girls will see themselves reflected as they truly are in advertising and entertainment.”

As part of its onboarding, Vodafone has quickly adopted GEM™, a research methodology developed by SeeHer to give advertisers the ability to quantify unconscious bias in their ads and the programs in which they run their ads. Validated in the U.S. and 13 other countries, GEM™ Global provides marketers with culturally relevant data on how their consumers view advertising in terms of gender equality.

Vodafone Global Brand Director Sara Martins de Oliveira said, “Vodafone is helping to build digital societies where the benefits of technology are available to everyone. Our adverts need to reflect that vision and the insight from GEM has made us more aware of new ways we can continue to improve portrayals of women in our advertising as well as improve our ROI.”

Since the launch of GEM™ Global in late 2018, the metric has been utilized in numerous markets across the world by SeeHer transnational members ABInBev, Citi, Procter & Gamble, and now Vodafone.

“It’s exciting to watch our movement spread across the world,” concludes Christine Manna, president and chief operating officer, ANA. “We are gratified to have the unique collective power of ANA brands to impact positive change.”

About the #SeeHer Movement

Despite the strides made to accurately portray women and girls in media, an unconscious bias persists in advertising, media, and programming. The Association of National Advertisers (ANA) launched the #SeeHer initiative in June 2016 in a partnership with The Female Quotient (TFQ) at the United State of Women Summit. The SeeHer mission is to accurately portray all women and girls in media so that they can see themselves reflected as they truly are--and so that the world can see them with 20/20 vision. SeeHer’s goal is to increase the accurate portrayals of women and girls in media by 20 percent by 2020. The group developed a Gender Equality Measure (GEM™) to track progress and the marketing effect of removing unconscious bias from ads and programming. High GEM™ scores directly correlate to improved ROI. GEM™ won the 2017 ESOMAR Research Effectiveness Award. The methodology became the industry standard in the U.S., which led to a global rollout in 2018. For more information, visit www.SeeHer.com, and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter @SeeHer2020.

About the Association of National Advertisers (ANA)

CSC Announces Cyber Security Findings for the Media Industry

Several media companies use enterprise-class providers for their domains, yet haven’t implemented some of the most fundamental security measures needed in today’s threat landscape

WILMINGTON, Del -Saturday 22 June 2019 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Securing a company’s digital infrastructure has become a major concern to corporations worldwide. With leading security companies and other organizations alerting corporations and the public to recent widespread, state-sponsored domain name system (DNS) hijacking, more and more brands are starting to take action.

CSC has been issuing Cyber Security Reports since 2017, culling the most important information about security risks, and in particular, risks to brands that are not mitigated by a traditional firewall.

The recent research conducted by CSC focuses on the media industry, revealing that 78% of global media brands use a corporate domain registrar, yet only 37% of those have a registrar lock to protect their DNS from hijacking. Recent domain hijacking, unauthorized changes, and deletion of vital domains have shown that effectively managing domain names and DNS must become a critical component for enhancing the security posture of any company with an online presence.

More worrisome is that, out of all analyzed global media brands, 55% use enterprise DNS, but only 3% have domain name system security extension (DNSSEC) enabled. Lack of deployment of DNSSEC leads to vulnerabilities in the DNS by way of DNS spoofing or cache poisoning, which can include an attacker hijacking any step of the DNS lookup process, resulting in hackers taking control of an internet browsing session or redirecting users to deceptive websites.

“Security attacks—in particular, those outside the firewall—aren’t new, yet they are becoming more sophisticated and vicious by the day,” says Ken Linscott, product director at CSC. “We strongly advise clients to use the tools and recommendations available to get their digital infrastructure secure. There are very simple and cost-effective implementations that will protect brands as well as customers.”

The report also includes domain security trends among global media brands, phishing and email fraud risks, as well as recommendations on how to secure the digital infrastructure.

Stanford Graduate School of Business Launches Stanford Embark, a New Online Toolkit for Entrepreneurs Across the Globe

Intuitive platform provides actionable content to help founders launch and grow their businesses.

STANFORD, Calif.-Saturday 15 June 2019 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE) -- In its commitment to furthering global reach and meaningful impact, Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) today announced Stanford Embark, an online self-paced resource to help guide entrepreneurs through each stage of their business venture.

Stanford Embark is an interactive membership-based toolkit for emerging and established entrepreneurs. The resource is designed by Stanford GSB’s world-class faculty and successful entrepreneurs, combining high-level insights on building ventures with tactical steps necessary for launching or validating a sustainable business.

Entrepreneurs across the globe will have access to and utilize Stanford Embark’s flexible modules and interactive tools to evaluate their progress and develop a personalized “startup canvas,” that will act as a roadmap and help apply what they learn directly to their venture. For the first time, Stanford GSB will make its proprietary entrepreneurship-centered content and teaching accessible to a wider audience through this set of tested tools.

“Stanford Embark enables the GSB to reach a whole new community of entrepreneurs all over the world,” said Stefanos Zenios, the co-director of Stanford GSB’s Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, and the Investment Group of Santa Barbara Professor of Entrepreneurship and Professor of Operations, Information & Technology. “Building a business can be isolating and overwhelming; we wanted to simplify the process and support entrepreneurs during their journey with research-based, founder-proven resources.”

Stanford Embark adds to Stanford GSB’s entrepreneurship-centered courses and program offerings. The demand for content that cultivates a better understanding of the issues facing the entrepreneurial community has steadily increased since the school established the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies (CES) in 1996.

Stanford Embark’s curriculum draws on more than two decades of teaching and research on entrepreneurship. This new online toolkit adopts frameworks used in Stanford GSB classes to equip entrepreneurs with the actionable content they need to launch and grow their businesses. A group of test users, each in different stages of their entrepreneurial journey, have been exploring Stanford Embark over the past four weeks and utilizing its tools to develop and grow their businesses.

“Prior to using Stanford Embark, I didn’t have the one tool that helped me stay organized and allowed me to look at my business plan holistically,” said Nibi Lawson, a Stanford Embark beta user who is building a business that will be a one-stop solution for natural Afro hair, called KinkyApothecary. “When I went through the individual modules, I learned how important, and necessary, it is to include customer personas in my plan. Embark not only helped me recognize that gap but also showed me how to address it.”

Stanford Embark users will have access to all modules, which will enable them to:

Identify target customers and build personas
Develop a prototype
Create value propositions
Define a go-to-market strategy
Determine the right profit model
Stanford Embark is available immediately. The introductory membership price is $99 for three months; the standard price will then be $395 for six months. To subscribe to Stanford Embark or to learn more, visit: http://startup.stanford.edu/.

Thermally separated automatic sliding doors ... Sales release of the new ECdrive T2 system

Dubai, United Arab Emirates-Monday 17 June 2019 [ AETOS Wire ]

GEZE have enhanced the “all-rounder” of the GEZE sliding door portfolio with new additional features. Even better, stronger, more efficient and more sustainable, the new ECdrive T2 door drive is now available. Its flexibility makes it even easier for our customers and partners to reach their goals. In sliding door systems with insulation glazing and thermally separated profiles it offers comfort and makes an important contribution to thermal insulation in façade entrances. GEZE is one of the world's leading developers and manufacturers of construction systems for door, window and safety technology. GEZE offers a comprehensive range of products including automatic door systems and door technology, glass systems, smoke and heat extraction systems, safety technology as well as window and ventilation technology.

ECdrive T2 with the fine-framed GCprofile Therm

It is our task and responsibility to realize and to create buildings with as many uses in harmony with people and the environment. With the new ECdrive T2, we have combined design freedom, design, barrier-free ease of access, energy efficiency, safety and connectivity in a completely new way. We offer sliding door systems with the new ECdrive T2 door drive, in keeping with the energy-conscious building trend: with GCprofile Therm, the fine-framed profile system, optimized for high demands on automatic sliding door systems.

Minimizing heat gain

The thermal insulation qualities of the new thermally separated profile system, in combination with the new ECdrive T2, reduce heat loss in large glass sliding doors, especially in shop fronts, as well as on the entrances of hospitals, hotels, office buildings, railway stations or airports.

“The intent of the entrance requirement is to moderate infiltration of air into a space and to reduce heat. The majority of infiltration comes through primary entrance doors that are typically used to access public areas, and have higher usage rates than doors classified for personnel use.” Commented Charles Constantin, Managing Director of GEZE Middle East. “Entrances can reduce heat effects by creating an air lock entry.” He concluded.

Discreet door design – quiet movement

Door leaves weighing up to 140 kg can be realized with an optional double roller carriage by using ECdrive T2. This means that higher leaf weights resulting from the use of multiple insulation glazing, for example, can be recognized.

Thermally separated automatic sliding door systems

If the new ECdrive T2 with GCprofile Therm profile system is combined with thermally separated fanlights, the result is a complete door system with optimized insulation and sealing. The systems are supplemented by a continuous floor guide with drainage.

From a single source

The thermally separated fine-framed fanlights are available from GEZE as well: with single or multi-part partition including side façade panels. In this way, we can fulfil demands for design door systems with maximum transparency. Why? Because we develop solutions for our customers' needs and provide inspirational impulses which offer them even more benefits.

Safe: also against uninvited guests

For increased burglar resistance, for example during night operation, GCprofile Therm can be equipped with a manual or motorized hook bolt lock. The ECdrive T2 drive system meets maximum user safety standards in accordance with DIN 18650-1/2 and DIN EN 16005.

Smart benefits through networking

Like all automatic doors from GEZE, full connectivity is another very special benefit of the ECdrive T2 door drive system.

Integration into BACnet networking solutions with the GEZE Cockpit building automation system
Safety and comfort: central visualization, operation and monitoring
Installation and maintenance: more efficient and convenient

Installing and aligning the ECdrive T2 door drive is quick and easy.

Pre-drilled track with elongated holes
Easier cable laying thanks to integrated cable routing.
New service interface on the drive
Easy connection with the service terminal or Bluetooth interface
Individual service concepts

We offer excellent service, which continues long after delivery of the ECdrive T2 sliding door system. As a professional partner for door systems, we support automatic doors throughout their entire life cycle with service and maintenance – naturally tailored to your needs.



GEZE – ABOUT US

We are an innovative global company for products, system solutions and comprehensive service for doors and windows. We offer innovative and highly modern door, window and safety technology. Our specialist knowledge allows us to achieve outstanding results that make buildings worth living in.
