Chinese AI unicorns target smart cities & public security | #TpromoCom #AI #Military #Chinese | According to research company, Memoori, in a bid to be at the forefront of the technology, China is pouring billions of dollars into companies that are researching AI technology, with video analytics and IoT platforms for smart cities being two of the prime applications.

FBI Warns of Dangers in ‘Safe’ Websites | #TpromoCom #FBI #CyberSecurity #Cyber | Criminals are using TLS certificates to convince users that fraudulent sites are worthy of their trust.
One of the most common mechanisms used to secure web browser sessions — and to assure consumers that their transactions are secure — is also being used by criminals looking to gain victims’ trust in phishing campaigns. The FBI has issued a public service announcement defining the problem and urging individuals to go beyond simply trusting any “https” URL.
Browser publishers and website owners have waged successful campaigns to convince consumers to look for lock icons and the “https:” prefix as indicators that a website is encrypted and, therefore, secure.

Start The Journey To Unlock Building Automation Data | #TpromoCom #Automation #Webinar #BuildingAutomation | Finding value locked away in building automation systems is not a destination, but a journey. Each facility has its own unique challenges and opportunities – while we start projects to unlock that value, the data itself may point us in a new direction.
Facilities needs include energy savings, operational awareness, resilience, reliability or some combination of these objectives. How do we find a solution across these objectives and across the silos of our organization to light up the data we already have before we start to add more?
Join us for this free webinar as we present our journey through the operations at the San Leandro Tech Campus as well as value found on other journeys including NASA, Eli Lilly, University of Maryland, and University of California at Davis.
