Dubai is hitting another major milestone with VR based STEM Lab Program for schools

Youth have a responsibility to contribute to the development of the region and look into the use of future technologies for a better future for all”

— His Excellency Omar Sultan Bin Olama, Artificial Intelligence Minister

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, February 1, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Over a million students and thousands of teachers across the Middle East have experienced the most immersive technologies. Their collective huge response in favor of these technologies and the positive impact they have on education has already led many schools in Dubai to introduce the modern learning methodologies in classrooms. These schools have termed VR technology as “a powerful learning tool”.

VIRTUAL REALITY FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN THE MIDDLE EAST

Moving forward, the education ecosystem in UAE is now hitting another major milestone with VRXOne’s VR based STEM Lab Program for schools. Designed around the Classroom Format, the initiative is the largest program of its kind helping educators to implement VR, AR and Ai led education in schools across the Middle East. A massive initiative to put the region on world’s map as the most advanced in classroom learning solutions and teaching aides.

“Designed around the Classroom Format, the initiative is the largest program of its kind helping educators to implement VR, AR and Ai led education in schools across the Middle East.”

Prior to it, UAE government’s A Million Coders Program and subsequently, VRXOne’s One Million Expeditions for Emirati youth, gained immense response for their impact in enhancing students’ learning abilities. It comes as no surprise then that immersive technologies are dictating a massive shift in human-technology interaction. And VR based STEM Lab is the next step in classroom education not only locally but globally as well. Instead of moving around a mouse or tapping on a screen, we are able to step inside and explore the realities of our universe in the virtual world.

We know for a fact that the early adoption of these immersive technologies is a must as per the government’s vision of a knowledge-based economy. It is the only way to close the gap between education and job markets at a rapid pace. And VRXOne’s VR based Lab Program helps to work towards that goal by providing the youth with the most immersive learning solutions.

“VRXOne has the largest library of VR/AR/Ai lessons available in Arabic Language covering a huge range of STEM Subjects.”

VR FOR STEM EDUCATION – LEADING THE WAY

Virtual Reality has emerged as the ultimate medium for delivering “experiential learning”. No other methodology even comes close in impact. The fact that no physical or geographical boundaries stand in the way of this technology, is reason alone for its huge impact. Add to that the element of safety and cost-effectiveness and you have a win-win combination.

Virtual Reality is the ideal technology and well-suited to delivering the learning in STEM subjects. Since all these disciplines – Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics – are based on highly critical thinking and applied knowledge, VR is the perfect fit for STEM education.

VRXOne’s VR based Classroom Format offers the most advanced level standalone program today equipped with machine learning applications allowing the teachers full control of the curriculum-aligned virtual lessons. VRXOne has the largest library of VR/AR/Ai lessons available in Arabic Language covering a huge range of STEM subjects. No longer does a student need physical presence in a science lab to understand a concept thoroughly. Every VR class provides pedagogically sound, engaging content to students for proper exploration and understanding. For instance, VR technology eliminates the need for a microscope to examine an organism or to study the DNA sequencing. The VR lab actually provides full immersion for further exploration of DNA and the atom at the molecular level. Something which is not possible in a physical lab.

Such are the opportunities available to STEM students today in the UAE made possible through the VR technology. These captivating lessons are the way forward for the youth to develop the right skill-set needed for the future markets in the era of technology. Moreover, the technology is exactly in line with the innovation goals of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai,
“Our vision for development is driven by a deep understanding of the future needs, and built on proactive ideas because we want to be in first place globally. Our methodology for development is based on the launch of initiatives that can be applied anywhere in the world and creating a global model for not only our economy but also for the global economy,"

LEARNING LANGUAGES IS FUN WITH VR

Learning a new language is one of the most exciting as well as daunting things for a student or any individual. There is always an initial hesitation with a new way to pronounce, speak and interact. VR helps to eliminate the element of hesitation and self-consciousness by providing scenario-based, highly interactive environments to develop new language skills. It can put you in a class full of learners or amongst the native speakers to perfect your command over language.

Because VR experiences support interaction and are able to replicate different situations, there isn’t a more realistic way to learn a language than reality itself. With VR, you could either be buying cannoli on the streets of Sicily or asking for directions in Turkey. There is the added benefit of instant feedback on pronunciation and suggestions for vocabulary to further enrich your learning experience. The Head of Languages at Methodist Ladies’ College in Melbourne, Chloe Briand opines that VR helps to build students’ confidence and reduce the level of anxiety associated with learning languages, “This is a tool that you use to practise and improve on your fluency and accuracy in a real-life scenario, without feeling self-conscious in front of a native speaker. It’s the perfect segue between a relaxed familiar environment and the outside world.”

BUILDING A VR LESSON IS EASY

Being a great interactive medium, it is fairly easy to build and create a lesson in VR for both teachers and students. For instance, it is as easy as ‘1,2,3’ to get a class started on a Google Expedition. But in case you wanted something more, you could easily use Google StreetView to create an exclusive expedition of your own. Visit the famous landmarks or walk through historical places.

By virtue of being a virtual medium, VR can put you in any location, inside a lab or an archeological site in an instant. There are boundless opportunities to explore and learn with VR so much so that not only does it remove geographical walls but time-bound as well. You can explore the lengths of Roman Colosseum or walk on the Acropolis of Athens. It is all within reach with VR.

BRINGING AUGMENTED REALITY IN SCHOOLS

In the same fashion, Augmented Reality enhances the learning experience for STEM lessons. You can use it to examine the 3D models of plants, animals as well as the natural features in your class. Students can go “deeper” in a lesson by rotating, swiping, and zooming in and out of a model at will. They can even take photos or videos of the model within their surroundings.

AR is a great learning technology and brings huge value to everyday lesson plans. Aligned with the standards of the UAE Ministry of Education, the platform supports all kinds of different visual overlays and hundreds of lesson plans with valuable educational content.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE FOR TODAY'S CLASSROOM

Immersive technologies can help us to make classroom learning fun and exciting as well as more relevant and comprehensive. But at the same time, it is important to monitor the students’ performance to ensure positive outcomes and compliance with the educational standards.

This is where Artificial Intelligence helps to customize lessons for students providing cross-reference between subjects to support interdisciplinary learning. Moreover, automation of processes through Ai – such as performance monitoring, feedback, marking, tracking growth etc. – provide further assistance in the class freeing up more time for teachers.

On the part of students, Ai helps them understand concepts better and self-pace their studies. It also inculcates innovative and entrepreneurial thinking in the students something which is the need of the day. Sreejit Chakrabarty, the Director of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence at Gems Education Dubai, says that Ai opens a huge door of opportunities for young minds, “Naturally, this Ai literacy brings in and helps students to extend their knowledge of English, Maths and Coding. For example, by seeing how their programming strategies are reflected in the learning and behaviour of a machine, they can better grasp abstract concepts such as cause and effect. They can also get immediate feedback from the machine and iterate their ideas based upon this. These are powerful opportunities for learning in a cross-disciplinary way.”

TEACHERS ARE READY FOR VR EDUCATION IN THE UAE

Arab teachers view the virtual and augmented reality apps as invaluable mediums to support “deeper learning” practices. As more and more content is being developed to align with curriculum requirements, the teachers find it immensely helpful to inspire curiosity to learn and ingenuity to create in their students.

Martha McCleary, Head of Digital Literacy at Foremarke School Dubai, shares her experience of VR in the classroom and how it has helped to involve students in the learning process, "We have been using VR to visit faraway places and go on virtual field trips. This heightens engagement in lessons as children get to experience new environments. Recently we have begun looking at creating our own VR experiences. The children are busy creating online galleries of their work. Beyond learning about VR, this engages the children in learning about design and user experience."

One of the GEM schools, The Winchester School at Jebel Ali has also teamed up with VRXOne to improve learning productivity of their students using VR and Ai. The Vice-Principal of the school, Dr. Ritika Anand believes that these immersive technologies become the basis to provide a thorough and holistic learning experience to the students, “Student experience is the biggest testimonial of a school’s commitment to provide holistic learning. The use of technologies like VR is aligned with the concept of experiential learning in pedagogy. Such technologies encourage inquisitiveness, innovation and excellence, and ultimately lead to bigger impact through nation development.”

STUDENTS READY FOR EXPO 2020 AND THE YEAR OF INNOVATION AHEAD

In the wake of these immersive learning experiences, students are well-equipped for the year of innovation ahead. Ai has a huge part to play in UAE’s National Innovation Strategy. Consequently, it is also a major component of Expo 2020 as well. As UAE gears towards the fast approaching event, the students are enthusiastically curious about using Ai to put their imagination to work and manifest their innovative ideas into reality.
The Emirati youth is more than ready for the upcoming challenges ahead backed by their mentor and the State Minister for Artificial Intelligence, His Excellency Omar Sultan Bin Olama, “Youth have a responsibility to contribute to the development of the region and look into the use of future technologies for a better future for all.” Speaking to a conference in Sharjah, he stressed upon the importance of AI as part of youth’s everyday life now and said, “Each of you have to be aware how to use it and develop it for you to be able to adopt it.”

Senecio Robotics shipped its revolutionary BioMosquito™ robot to an international partner

Senecio Compact BioMosquito module based on deep learning technology, with mosquitoes being entered on the right side, with automated loading of male-only (none biting) mosquitoes on the left side into release boxes, after classification and sorting

Senecio ceremony for shipping its BioMosquito machine

Loading station loading measured number of mosquitoes per each release box mounted at the loading position

Senecio Robotics BioMosquito™ based artificial intelligence robot will support global efforts to combat mosquito diseases

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, ISRAEL, January 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Tel-Aviv, Israel, January 31, 2019, Senecio is pleased to announce that a positive patent examination for its mosquito robotic solution, has been received, making Senecio the sole company with a positive examination for a mosquito robotic sex sorting.

The female mosquito is the deadliest animal on planet and transmits diseases such as Malaria, Dengue, Yellow fever, West Nile, Zika, etc. with a death toll of hundreds of thousands per year and hospitalizing millions.

In the fight against mosquitoes, the latest technology is the rearing and release of specially treated mosquitoes. Global players include companies like Google sister company, Verily Life Science, Intrexon subsidiary Oxitec, World Mosquito Program, MosquiotMate, Wolbaki, Forrest Innovations and others.

Some approaches, are based on the fact the female mosquito mates only once, hence, the release of large number of sterile male-only mosquitoes (which are non-biting), leads to local population suppression, while other approaches suggest releasing of special treated males and females which prevent diseases transmission. In collaboration with the unnamed partner, Senecio is working to significantly advance the speed, scale and cost of addressing these needs.

Promising results were obtained in trial size programs around the world, including USA, China, Singapore, Australia, Brazil and others.
However, when the solution needs to be applied in large scale, the mosquito factories are limited in their growth potential relying on tedious labor work for the sorting and packaging of the special mosquitoes.

Senecio has been developing a proprietary technology, providing mosquito factories, laboratories and governments with an affordable, compact solution for robotic handling, sorting and loading of mosquitoes in large scale.
The solution can also be combined with the traditional pesticides approach, for an integrated pest management approach, resulting in an effective solution to the mosquito problem.

The company deep learning technology for automating the production process of mosquitoes is integrated with the company special release systems, with granted patents including the sequential release of cartridges from a moving van or a flying vehicle. Special aerial systems were developed and successfully tested in the US with the support of the BIRD foundation (An Israel-USA bilateral program). Senecio was the first company in the world to safely release mosquitoes while flying at high speed.

Senecio Robotics, is an early stage technology company, developing automation solutions for large scale mosquito projects. It is the holder of dozens of inventions from rearing, through sex sorting to loading, air and ground field release, utilizing proprietary proven technologies.

Backed by Ocean Azul Partners from Miami, with a global vision to support world efforts for eradicating the number one killer, Senecio is working to provide mosquito factories with a complete mobile automated unit, providing an affordable solution for one of the worlds most pressing needs.

After years of frustration with non-integrated systems, they developed KlickTrack as a synchronized ecosystem, saving retailers time and money. Key features and benefits include:

• Product Registry: Gives retailers ability to easily view and manage inventory and offer their products organized by brand. The forward-facing menu empowers consumers to shop in a way that feels most familiar.
• Proprietary Data Architecture: Reduces inventory redundancies, speeding up workflow, enabling retailers to uphold customer service on high traffic days.
• Data Segmentation Tools and Intelligent Workflows: Provides real-time insights into all sales metrics, allowing retailers the ability to analyze historical customer and product data.
• Guaranteed Compliance: Driven by real-time API, KlickTrack's compliance translator ties directly into state regulatory systems, virtually eliminating the risk of fines and violations.
• KlickTrack Fulfillment Mode: Enables retailers to create orders at the register and on the sales floor that can be seamlessly fulfilled in the back office. Also enables pre-order and delivery services where available.

Cannabis retailers interested in a demo or in signing up for KlickTrack can learn more at www.klicktrack.io or stop by Booth #821 during CannaCon (January 31-February 2). Steve Kessler will also lead a Business/Legal seminar titled “KlickTrack: Creating a global POS platform from inside the store” on January 31 from 1-1:50 pm in Seminar Room 2.

About KlickTrack
Proudly built in Washington State, KlickTrack is a fully integrated retail ecosystem, which unites a product and sales platform, compliance translator, and point of sale system for the recreational and medical cannabis market. Developed out of first-hand cannabis retail experience, KlickTrack offers a synchronized ecosystem for cannabis management across the entire cannabis retail chain and integrations with LEAF, Biotrack THC, and Metrc (end of Q1 2019) states. KlickTrack was built by Steven Kessler and Brendan Hill, co-founders of Bainbridge Island-based retail store, Paper and Leaf, which has been recognized in Forbes, Time, CNN/Money, Interior Design, Variety and Architectural Digest. KlickTrack is currently available to download in the App Store.

About Stack8
Stack8’s mission is to fight for our customers to achieve the promise of Digital Communications
Stack8 aspires to deliver on the promise of Digital Communications. Today, the majority of companies that have transitioned to IP communications have effectively just bought an expensive phone system, yielding little business performance improvements. While the promise of digital communications is well defined (see below), companies just can’t get there. There are numerous factors holding customers back, led by integrators/partners treating this move like any other project. Once the technology is installed, they move to the next project stranding the customer with a complicated and difficult to use platform.

We built Stack8 to really fight for our customers. We seek to get past the broken promises of integrators by building a pathway to digital communications while also adhering to disciplined IT processes. This quest requires a blend of creativity, passion, and experience so that our clients no longer have to accept the status quo.
We believe in this promise and have built our company to lead our customers on their Digital journey.
Founded in 2010, Stack8 Technologies is an independent, privately held company based in Montreal, Canada. To find out more, please visit www.stack8.com.

Worried about the financial impact of data breaches? 5 reasons for cyber insurance

Joe Collinwood at CySure explains why cyber insurance is a business essential for companies

Insurance should be viewed as an important addition to a company’s overall risk management”

— Joe Collinwood, CEO, CySure

LONDON, UK, January 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cyber risk remains a key concern for every boardroom and small to medium enterprise (SME) business owner. The current cyber landscape is chaotic including state-sponsored hackers, financially motivated cybercrime gangs and simple negligent data loss. Risk is everywhere and liabilities are high. Cyber threat remains one of the most significant and growing risks facing organisations today and too few are prepared.

The global average cost of a data breach per compromised record in 2018 was $148, a 6.4% increase from 2017, according to the Ponemon Institute 13th-annual Cost of Data Breach Study. Interestingly, locations that experienced the most expensive data breaches include the US and the UK, where notification costs are nearly five times the global average. It is clear the problem isn’t going away. Although cyber security most often makes it into the headlines because of large breaches, the most frequent threat is actually to SMEs. Smaller organisations are by nature agile and innovative, harnessing the power of technology and the Internet to reach their customer base, however, this also increases the attack surface. Research conducted by the National Cyber Security Alliance revealed that 60 percent of hacked small and medium-sized organisations go out of business after six months.

Five reasons for cyber insurance
Becoming more resilient to cyber risks in an age of digital disruption means understanding the full scope of cyber governance responsibilities. Here are five reasons why every business, regardless of size or ownership, needs cyber insurance:

1. Cyber crime is growing exponentially – an overwhelming majority of businesses are reliant on online services, which exposes them to cyber security risks. The 2018 Cyber Security Breaches Survey, conducted on behalf of the UK Government, revealed that 43% of UK organisations surveyed had experienced a cyber security breach or attack in the last 12 months. With highly sophisticated attacks now commonplace, businesses need to assume that they will be breached at some point and have coverage to mitigate the risk.

2. Data breaches are costly – as mentioned before, in Ponemon Institute’s 2018 Cost of Data Breach Study, the average cost of a stolen or lost record is $148, while the overall cost of a data breach is nearly $4 million. This is irrespective of the fines and sanctions under the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) within the EU and California’s Consumer Protection Act, which comes into effect on 1st January 2020 and will surely add to those costs.

However, the real expense of an attack against an organisation is not just the financial damage suffered or the cost of remediation, a data breach can also inflict untold reputational damage. Suffering a cyber-attack can cause customers to lose trust and spend their money elsewhere. Additionally, having a reputation for poor security can also lead to a failure to win new business or government contracts.

3. Organisations can be held legally and financially liable if third party data is compromised in a breach – emerging regulation as announced by the US Department of Defence (DoD) and the EU’s GDPR, places the responsibility on organisations to only appoint third parties who can provide sufficient guarantees that the requirements of NIST 800-171 and GDPR will be met. Both the DoD and the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) will hold liable, and may, fine any organisation that has not carried out due diligence to ensure third parties are compliant. Regulatory fines have become synonymous with data breaches and the fact that cyber risks are now global, makes complying with various regulatory responses across different geographies all the more challenging.

4. Standard insurance policies do not cover cyber risk – cyber insurance is specifically designed to cover the unique exposure of data privacy and security and can act as a backstop to protect a business from the financial and reputational harm resulting from a breach. While some categories of losses might be covered under standard policies, many significant gaps often exist and cyber events can impact numerous lines of insurance coverage. Standard policies are often unlikely to cover the cost of even a “standard” security breach, let alone cyber-attack or ‘hacktivism’. Only specialist cyber insurance policies provide extensive cover. However, organisations need to research policies carefully to understand the level of cover offered and their responsibilities to stay within the conditions of the policy.
5. Improved cyber awareness and risk management – insurance is just one piece of the puzzle and solely taking out a cyber insurance policy won’t protect an organisation from a cyber-attack. Given that the single greatest cyber risk is social engineering, ie employees voluntarily but unknowingly allowing an attack to occur, it's critical that organisations get the basics right, such as putting every employee through training on how to avoid and recognize cyber threats. The fact is that the vast majority of damage done by cyber-attacks is due to an inability of the party being attacked to respond. Organisations need a comprehensive risk management plan that details how the company will respond in the face of a cyber-attack, that includes unknown threats.

Getting the basics right
Given the complexities and ever-changing threats it is important to be proactive as possible. Cyber Essentials is a UK government-backed and industry supported scheme that guides organisations on how to protect themselves against the most common cyber threats. Undertaking a certification route will help organisations, especially SMEs which may not have a dedicated cyber security specialist, to coordinate all security practices in one place, consistently and cost-effectively.

Certification is a valuable indicator of a mature approach to cyber security in organisations. It helps to guard against the most common cyber threats and demonstrate a commitment to cyber security. Whilst cyber insurance can provide a layer of protection when an organisation is faced with a cyber threat, it is no substitute for good cyber hygiene. Insurance should be viewed as an important addition to a company’s overall risk management, but organisations should not wait for a breach before confronting their cyber risks and exposure.
