The executive conference, sponsored by Alarm.com, athenahealth, Becklar, Nortek Security & Control, Softeq, and Sprosty Network, features presentations from key executives in the connected health space:

“How COVID changed telehealth and the future of care delivery,” by Tori Ames, MPA, Manager, CincyKids Health Connect, Center for Telehealth, Cincinnati Children’s

“Explosive Growth in Telehealth,” by Dr. Donna O’Shea, Chief Medical Officer of Population Health Management, UnitedHealthcare

“Telehomecare in the COVID-19 Era,” by Mark Dunning, President and CEO, Care Planning Institute, and Gene Wang, CEO, People Power

“Better Together: Extending Healthcare to the Home,” by Richard Culberson, Executive Director, Cox Homelife Strategy & Operations, Cox Communications

“When everything changed, what stayed the same? Healthcare’s evolution in a time of pandemic and humanitarian crisis,” by Angie Kalousek Ebrahimi, Executive Director, Mind-Body Medicine, Blue Shield of California

“Transforming Healthcare with New Models to Connect Patients, Families and Providers,” by Yuri Quintana, PhD, Chief, Division of Clinical Informatics, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Assistant Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School  

Parks Associates research finds COVID-19 is forcing seniors into new routines with smart home and healthcare technologies, which may result in new willingness to use tech-based solutions. Fifty-four percent of seniors who used a video conferencing solution during COVID-19 did so for the first time. Additionally, use of telehealth services rose five times year-over-year, with 29% of seniors reporting telehealth use in Q2 2020, compared to just 6% in 2019.

“COVID-19 is forcing consumers, smart home companies, and the healthcare industry to try new solutions and forge new partnerships to realize a complete, home-based experience in healthcare delivery,” said Brad Russell, Research Director, Connected Home, Parks Associates. “At Connected Health Summit, we will examine market forces driving a range of new technologies, like virtual health assistants (voice/text/avatars), AI-powered diagnostics and navigation tools, AR and VR experiences, and robotics, and highlight industry perspectives on issues such as the potential impact on health outcomes, efficiency of healthcare delivery, market viability, expected speed of implementation, and important issues to consider when applying emerging technologies.”

Will cameras take over the market for perimeter #security?

Will #cameras take over the market for perimeter #security? | #ESC_LLC #VideoSurveillance | How will perimeter security look in the future? Most of the experts that Detektor and securityworldmarket.com met up with believe that cameras will not take over completely, but there are exceptions http://ow.ly/Q9mb30qQSV5

OPINION: Many years ago I wrote an opinion piece for the ISIO where I described intrusion detection/security at some future time. Here it is in a nutshell: 1) Cameras will be wireless, 2) they’ll be peel and stick, 3) they will provide a 360 forward view, 4) you can choose your view in software.

Secondly, there will be no switches on doors or motion detection. There will be no access control card readers, no smartphone entry options, etc. Traditional security will be replaced by video surveillance systems that uses AI with facial recognition. Anyone approaching the door who is known by the system, authorized at that door and that time  period will be automatically granted access. Tailgating also will be handled by the AI portion of the system. 

After hours, someone breaking into the facility will be met by an alarm and the perpetrator will be investigated by a roving  mobile unit equipped with audio and video. Police (if they will exist) will be alerted straight away. 

Those that press a button on a door speaker will have an opportunity to converse with the AI in an attempt to ascertain who they are and what they want. If they proceed to pry the door open, jimmy the lock, etc., the police will be notified and an alarm will sound locally.

Incidentally, if the Left is successful in having all law enforcement defunded and removed from protecting our communities; after the murders, rapes, robberies and other crimes rise sharply, police will be brought back to protect the innocent. Either that or warlords and community militias will spring up across the land and the world will be cast back into a dark ages-style environment.  –Al Colombo

It reveals the growing e-crime economy, the increasing prevalence of attacks in the financial services, retail, and government sectors, and in-depth analyses of adversarial tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) used against the different regions and industries.

According to the Cyberint the financial industry is the most targeted industry worldwide, accounting for more than one third of all targeted attacks, and the retail industry is the third most targeted worldwide, behind manufacturing in the Americas and government targets in APAC and EMEA.

Banking trojans top the most prevalent malware families observed during 2019, and the volume of attacks is increasing due to the sale of “As a Service” platforms allowing less sophisticated attackers access to more complex tools for as low as several US dollars a month.

Artificial Intelligence in the News – 26Nov2019

The current trend in tech, no matter what the venue, is Artificial Intelligence (AI) | #TpromoCom #ArtificialIntelligence #AI #HealthCare | Fashionable and trendy, the use of AI in society is looked upon as progressive and modern, not to mention smart and intelligent. No matter what the facts may be–whether AI’s the savior or the destroyer of mankind–everyone wants it, and they want it now.

The Future is Now! (image)

The future is now!

One of the reasons why corporations and governments across the globe are sure to continue their efforts to develop AI is the fact that this tech is capable of reading, sorting, assessing, analyzing, and logically, systematically reporting on huge quantities of data–commonly called Big Data.

But, will corporations and governments stop with Big Data? Let me take a guess… “No!” and let me tell you why, because AI is capable of so much more.

Is the US losing the artificial intelligence arms race?

Military Times, AI, Artificial Intelligence (image)

Is the US losing the artificial intelligence arms race? | #TpromoCom #AI #ArtificialIntelligence #War | The U.S. government, long a proponent of advancing technology for military purposes, sees artificial intelligence as key to the next generation of fighting tools.

The U.S. defense community is coming to understand that AI will significantly transform, if not completely reinvent, the world’s military power balance. The concern is more than military. As Chinese and Russian technologies become more sophisticated, they threaten U.S. domination of technological innovation and development, as well as global economic power and influence.

Personal Perspective: The issue of AI in military hands is a frightening one in that once you open that bottle and the Genie jumps out, you’re NOT going to put him back. Elon Musk has been very vocal on this right from the start, especially since he works with AI in his engineering work.

A number of years ago when AI engineers began working on AI tech, I read a number of comments made by them. Most common, ordinary people would be just as concerned as I was, and still am with what I read. The brunt of it is, “We know there’s a potential for annihilation by our own contrived, mechanized children, but they will embody the essence of humanity by virtue of the fact that we made them.”

I’m not sure about you, but that kind of statement by the creators of the first AI prototypes is disconcerting. Here’s another report released over the past few daze that should also cause you some concern: Click Here! –Al Colombo
