What is Coworking | #TpromoCom #Business #WorkFromHome #Cloud | Being alone together, with a twist. In short, coworking is like working with like-minded people in a shared space. Coworking used to be a location, now it is more of a mindset. The counter-movement that it was – people on bean bags with bare feet in large empty spaces – has now grown into mainstream acceptance. Coworking is for all of us.
It was just a guy that was unhappy with the situation
‘It was me’ says the inventor of coworking in an interview with himself on his own blog. ‘It was me who invented the coworking space. Whatever you read on Wikipedia.’
Just like many other inventions, coworking started out of personal frustration. Frustration that was apparently shared by many. Ultimately one person took the first step and did something about it. He rented a room and made it available to other people with the same frustrations as himself. This was the very beginning of coworking. Twenty years later – and with it many developments, bean bags and ferns – we have arrived at the current concept of coworking. Actually, it’s very logical that we ended up here. The same logic that prescribes that coworking is not a place for hipsters who just want to rebel against the norm, but it is something for everyone.

THESE ROBOT-PROOF SKILLS GIVE WOMEN AN EDGE IN THE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ERA | #ESC_LLC #ArtificialIntelligence #AI #WorkPlace | The latest panic about artificial intelligence is that it will deal a blow to women in the workplace. Women accustomed to gloomy headlines may have met this one with a fatalistic shrug. But it is worth interrogating why on earth it might be true.
The concerns are legitimate enough, but they fail to appreciate the big ways in which the world of work is going to change. In fact, it is quite possible the age of AI will belong to women. Men are the ones in danger of being left behind.
There are admittedly some reasons to worry about women. Some AI tools may be biased against them — a risk for any group that has been historically underrepresented in the workplace. Because machine learning tends to learn from historical data, it can perpetuate patterns from the past into the future. Amazon reportedly discovered a few years ago that an experimental recruitment tool, based on 10 years’ worth of job application data, had taught itself to penalize CVs that contained the word “women’s,” such as “captain of the women’s hockey team.”

Motorola Solutions Acquires VAAS Int’l Holdings | #TpromoCom #Acquisition #Business | …leader in data and image analytics for vehicle location. Acquisition complements Motorola Solutions’ command center software suite.
CHICAGO, LIVERMORE, CALIFORNIA and FORT WORTH, TEXAS – Jan. 7, 2018 – Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI) today announced it has acquired VaaS International Holdings, Inc., (VaaS) a data and image analytics company based in Livermore, California and Fort Worth, Texas. Motorola Solutions paid a purchase price of $445 million in a combination of cash and equity.
VaaS, a “video analysis as a service” company, is a leading global provider of data and image analytics for vehicle location. The company’s image capture and analysis platform, which includes fixed and mobile license plate reader cameras driven by machine learning and artificial intelligence, provides vehicle location data to public safety and commercial customers. Its subsidiaries include Vigilant Solutions for law enforcement users and Digital Recognition Network (DRN) for commercial customers. The company’s 2019 revenues are expected to be approximately $100 million.
“Automated license plate recognition is an increasingly powerful tool for law enforcement,” said Greg Brown, chairman and CEO, Motorola Solutions. “With this acquisition, VaaS will expand our command center software portfolio with the largest shareable database of vehicle location information that can help shorten response times and improve the speed and accuracy of investigations.”
VaaS’ platform enables controllable, audited data-sharing across multiple law enforcement agencies. Vehicle location information can help accelerate time to resolution and improve outcomes for public safety agencies, particularly when combined with police records. For example, law enforcement has used VaaS’ solutions to quickly apprehend dangerous suspects and find missing persons.
“We are very excited to be joining Motorola Solutions,” said Shawn Smith, co-founder of VaaS and president of Vigilant Solutions. “This acquisition enables us to continue to serve our existing customers and expand our footprint globally, while at the same time supporting a company with a commitment to innovation and growth, guided by a common purpose that aligns with our mission and culture: ‘To help people be their best in the moments that matter.’ It doesn’t get any better than that.”
“Our extensive license plate data and AI technology have opened new commercial applications of our products,” said Todd Hodnett, co-founder of VaaS and president of Digital Recognition Network. “We believe commercialization of these new applications can be accelerated under the Motorola Solutions brand and reach, and we look forward to working together to grow and diversify our commercial business.”
License plate reading is a highly specialized practice that requires purpose-built cameras and analytics. VaaS’ fixed and mobile license plate reader cameras can capture and analyze license plate information, which differs greatly by state and country, even when vehicles are moving at high speeds or in low-visibility weather conditions.
