HistoIndex's AI-based Digital Pathology Platform: A Validated Quantification Tool Recommended in the Guidelines for the Prevention and Treatment of Chronic Hepatitis B in China


SINGAPORE, May 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Singapore medtech company HistoIndex's AI-based stain-free digital pathology platform has long been established as a suitable tool for global clinical guidelines that outline the assessment, prevention and treatment of Chronic Hepatitis B (CHB) infections. In the latest edition of China's Guidelines for the Prevention and Treatment of Chronic Hepatitis B [1], the digital pathology platform was recommended for use in providing an automated and quantitative analysis of the liver's morphological characteristics in unstained liver biopsies with high repeatability and accuracy.

Challenges in Treating CHB Patients

Hepatitis B has been known as a complex disease to treat, due to the challenge in distinguishing patients with an active infection. These patients require intervention as opposed to patients with an inactive infection who require only standard monitoring without treatment. For patients with an active CHB infection, the treatment decision is usually based on the increased level of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) indicating an inflammation of the liver, high HBV-DNA serum level and the presence of the Hepatitis B e-antigen. However, these levels do not determine the presence and level of fibrosis in the liver.

To prevent the progression of CHB to cirrhosis or Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC), it is important to identify patients whose livers are affected by advanced fibrosis prior to therapy, as the post treatment prognosis depends on the stage of fibrosis. This can only be achieved with a fibrosis assessment by performing a liver biopsy, the current gold standard in evaluating the degree of inflammation, necrosis, and fibrosis in all liver conditions.

Identifying Significant Morphological Features

Besides evaluating the severity of fibrosis and inflammation in biopsies via conventional observations, it is important to accurately assess dynamic changes in the extracellular matrix of the liver, especially the various degrees of fibrous enlargement in the liver. Having a very precise measurement of these features will help clinicians to understand the stage of fibrosis in a patient and carry out a suitable treatment management plan for their patients. Enabled by Second Harmonic Generation (SHG), HistoIndex's AI-based platform has been noted in multiple publications and studies for its ability to accurately and automatically quantify changes in liver fibrosis that are both observable and subtle, and critical for treatment evaluation and modification.

In a study in 2018, fibrosis changes were evaluated with the SHG platform CHB patients before and after 78 weeks' antiviral therapy, with results encouraging the use of this tool to assess the efficacy of new anti-fibrotic therapies in clinical trials [2]. An interesting observation from this study was the reduction in fibrous septa after treatment, which showed treatment efficacy and was analyzed with precision by the SHG platform (Figure 1). Therefore, this platform will be beneficial as an assistive tool for CHB-related diagnosis, as well as for monitoring the efficacy of antiviral therapies during CHB clinical trials. This is synonymous with the SHG platform's recommendation by China's guidelines for its value in providing an automated and quantitative analysis for the assessment of CHB.

Figure 1: Stain-free images from HistoIndex’s AI-based digital pathology platform show a reduction of fibrous septa (in green) after treatment. After the images are produced, the platform generates data on the assessment of fibrosis parameters, which are crucial in determining treatment evaluation and modification.

Says Professor You Hong*, Chief Physician and Professor at the Beijing Friendship Hospital (affiliated with the Capital Medical University) and a co-author of the 2018 study, "As a clinician, we need to make practical and reasonable decisions for our patients. Including intelligent and reliable clinical tools such as the SHG platform in the guidelines will greatly enhance our diagnostic capability and personalize our treatment options in managing patients with CHB. Having utilized this platform in our studies has helped us to observe significant changes in the vital fibrosis parameters that are crucial in determining the severity of CHB and deciding the appropriate treatment route." Professor You is a Key Opinion Leader (KOL) in the Hepatology field, and her additional appointments include Deputy Director of the Chinese Society of Hepatology and Steering Committee Member of APASL.

Dr Dean Tai, Chief Scientific Officer of HistoIndex, adds, "We have substantial data from studies conducted with the involvement of KOLs that show the potential of our AI-based platform, in the area of CHB as well as Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH). I am confident that our platform will contribute significantly if implemented in similar international clinical guidelines, as well as in consortiums and workgroups that have been set up globally for the management of CHB."

China: Bearing a Heavy Disease Burden

As one of the countries battling CHB infections, China has the highest burden in the world, with one third of the world's infected people living in China [3]. Most of them are unaware of their infection, making this disease a truly silent epidemic. With limited access to diagnosis and treatment, these people face a bleak future as their condition will eventually progress â€�“ without treatment â€�“ to cirrhosis and eventually, liver cancer. About 10 million people living with CHB will die by 2030 [4] [5], with most of these deaths being avoidable. As part of efforts to help the nation in this devastating disease, experts under the Chinese Medical Association's (CMA) Infectious Diseases and Liver Diseases Branch released the updated guidelines in 2019.


* Professor You Hong is also the Assistant Dean at the Capital Medical University, where she holds additional appointments as Director of the Office of Academic Research and Director of the Experimental Center.

A Major and Growing Global Health Concern

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), CHB has resulted in an estimated 887,000 deaths in 2015, mostly from cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (i.e. primary liver cancer), and 257 million people are living with CHB as of the same year. As of 2016, 27 million people were aware of their infection, while only 4.5 million of the people diagnosed were on treatment [6]. Following WHO's call to eliminate viral hepatitis as a public health problem, and bring down new infections by 90% and reduce deaths by 65% by 2030, countries across the world have implemented clinical guidelines to standardize and aid in the prevention, diagnosis and antiviral therapy of CHB:

(a)  According to the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) practice guidance, a liver biopsy should be considered in patients with persistently borderline normal or slightly elevated ALT levels, particularly those who have been infected with HBV for a long period of time and are now older than 40 years of age [7]. 

(b) Similarly, in the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) 2017 Clinical Practice Guidelines on the management of Hepatitis B Virus Infections, patients without cirrhosis should be considered for treatment when their severity of liver disease assessed traditionally by liver biopsy shows at least moderate necroinflammation and/or at least moderate fibrosis [8].

(c)  In the 2016 update of the Asian-Pacific Association for the Study of the Liver (APASL) Consensus Guidelines on Invasive and Non-invasive Assessment of Hepatic Fibrosis, the liver biopsy remains the gold standard for assessing liver fibrosis. Interestingly, the guidelines acknowledged a possible shift from routine light microscopy to digital image analysis, and the incorporation of numerical measurements in conjunction with the integrated analysis of other cellular information [9]. Since then, microscopy and analysis of liver fibrosis has indeed been transformed; pathologists today are assisted by smart digital pathology tools to make accurate and objective assessments of fibrosis and other relevant features in the liver.

CGTN: Opportunities amid crisis in economic development


BEIJING, May 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Chinese President Xi Jinping visited national political advisors from the economic sectors attending a joint group meeting at the third session of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, according to a recent report by CGTN.

Xi Jinping encouraged political advisors to find opportunities amid crisis in economic development and give full play to China's potential and role as the world's largest market on Saturday morning. 

Xi gave the instructions when meeting national political advisors from the economic sector and joining a group discussion at the third session of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference. 

The president also called for efforts to strive for a moderately prosperous society in all respects and poverty eradication. 

Building an open world economy 

Xi said that China's economy is in a crucial stage of transforming its growth mode and optimizing its structure, and its prospects are good.

On the other hand, China's economy is under pressure with challenges and difficulties in structural, institutional, and cyclical aspects, he said, adding that COVID-19 has also hit the economy.

The president stressed that China's economic situation must be analyzed from a comprehensive, rational, and long-term perspective, urging efforts to build an open world economy.

To better push economic growth, Xi stressed the efforts in promoting innovation in science and technology and accelerating the development of strategic emerging industries, such as the digital economy, smart manufacturing, and new materials.

The president also noticed the strong resilience of China's economy and ample policy space and tools to stabilize economic growth.

Agriculture, private businesses, and employment

Xi then highlighted the fundamental role of agriculture, the importance of supporting private businesses and ensuring employment.

Urging more efforts in agriculture, Xi said that for a country as large as China with a population of 1.4 billion, the fundamental role of agriculture should never be ignored or weakened.

Thanks to the steady supply of grain and important agricultural and sideline products, China has maintained social stability amid the pandemic, he said, reiterating the goal of lifting rural poor residents out of poverty.

The president also encouraged private businesses to overcome difficulties and explore more opportunities in different periods.

China will continue to foster an enabling environment for the development of the private sector and ensure private businesses have equal access to production factors and policy support, says a government work report submitted to the national legislature for deliberation on Friday.

On ensuring employment, China's Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security (MHRSS) has helped over 10,000 central and local key enterprises recruit nearly 500,000 people to ensure the orderly production of medical supplies and daily necessities in the first quarter of 2020. 

An unemployment insurance program made it possible for more than 3 million enterprises to enjoy total refunds of 38.8 billion yuan (5.48 billion U.S. dollars), benefiting nearly 81 million employees around the country, according to the ministry.

Nuove linee prodotto Volonclick: prossimità, flessibilità e selezione Sun, 24 May 2020 13:01:55 +0200 m&cs m&cs Volonclick, business unit di Volonline specializzata nel dynamic packaging attraverso la piattaforma e nell’offerta di pacchetti in allotment per l’alta stagione, svela i piani per il dopo emergenza.




Il commento di Luca Adami, Cmo-CTO Volonline

"In questo momento è presto per fare previsioni – dichiara Luca Adami, CMO-CTO Volonline – ma noi ci basiamo su 3 punti fermi: l’emergenza Covid-19 non sta intaccando la voglia di viaggiare degli Italiani, i consumatori cercheranno maggiori garanzie e quindi si rivolgeranno al trade con più frequenza rispetto al passato e, almeno per i primi mesi dopo l’apertura, la domanda si concentrerà sul turismo di prossimità".

Da marzo la task force di prodotto coordinata dalla direzione ha analizzato migliaia di indicatori tratti dalle ricerche e dalle pratiche effettuate su Volonclick nel corso dell’ultimo anno. "Questa analisi – spiega 
Adami – ci ha permesso di valutare limiti e potenzialità del booking engine. I punti di forza riguardano l’elasticità in termini di date, le condizioni di annullamento favorevoli, la competitività dei prezzi determinata dai moltissimi provider connessi e la disponibilità di RTA e strutture di piccole-medie dimensioni, generalmente escluse dalle piattaforme. L’ampiezza di prodotto tra cui scegliere era invece il limite operativo. E’ stata quindi fatta una selezione di tantissime nuove strutture, volta a facilitare il lavoro degli agenti nei prossimi mesi".


Le novità di Volonclick

Volonclick riparte dunque in primo luogo dall’Italia, con 4 macro-linee: mare, città d’arte (prenotabili sia singolarmente che in combinato), laghi e montagna. In totale, l’offerta sulla Penisola conta oggi più di 400 strutture tutte già disponibili sulla piattaforma e annullabili sotto data, inclusi resort, villaggi e boutique hotel. All’Italia si affiancano Croazia, Costa Azzurra, Montenegro e Albania, su cui i product manager hanno già selezionato circa 250 strutture, sempre abbinate a condizioni di prenotazione flessibili. Un potenziamento a tempi di record, reso possibile dalla collaborazione di Luca Adami, manager che vanta una profonda conoscenza del prodotto di corto e medio raggio, acquisita nel corso della sua carriera professionale in tour operator, catene di villaggi e dmc specializzati.

"Per Volonclick non si tratta di destinazioni nuove – conclude 
Adami – ma era necessario ampliare e, soprattutto, ottimizzare l’offerta, per renderla più appealing agli occhi del cliente e più semplice da vendere per gli agenti".

Un lavoro che ha richiesto anche un impegno importante per l’implementazione di nuovi provider nella piattaforma, tra più di 400 realtà, molte dei quali specializzate sull’Italia.

Eventi digitali e promozione aziendale: diretta in streaming sempre? Sat, 23 May 2020 17:29:17 +0200 BIZCOMIT.IT BIZCOMIT.IT Meetings virtuali: vantaggi per l’azienda

Tutti gli incontri che si sarebbero dovuti svolgere dal vivo in presenza di persone sono stati rimandati a causa dell’emergenza sanitaria attuale. La quasi totalità di meetings, i congressi, convention, e occasioni di incontro sono stati sospesi, annullati o rimandati. Verosimilmente fino alla primavera del 2021: è opportuno trovare un modo per sostituire gli incontri in presenza tramite incontri digitali.

Molte aziende stanno cercando di reinventarsi tramite piattaforme virtuali, cercando di trasporre open house, congressi, convention e fiere sul web tramite dirette in live streaming oppure tramite video registrati in precedenza.

Utilizzare i social o i sistemi di videoconferenze può essere molto vantaggioso: In più, conoscendo al meglio i media è possibile decidere quale modalità andrà a sostituire in modo ottimale l’evento che non può essere svolto dal vivo.

In mancanza della possibilità di mostrare il funzionamento di un macchinario oppure di trasmettere i concetti alla base della produzione, è consigliabile ricorrere alla creazione di video aziendali da trasmettere in diretta oppure da conservare in archivio per una diffusione a carattere periodico.

Di seguito cercheremo di illustrare quali siano le modalità da preferire in questa particolare situazione caratterizzata dalla pandemia.

Eventi virtuali

Le aziende che avrebbero preso parte alle fiere in qualità di espositori devono a questo punto reinventarsi e reinventare anche la spesa destinata alla partecipazione della fiera stessa. Proviamo a ribaltare la situazione a vantaggio dell’azienda tramite alcune modalità:

  • Organizzare Webinar (seminario interattivo in diretta): questa è una delle modalità che era in uso anche prima dell’emergenza sanitaria e rimane molto utile. Tramite i Webinar, infatti, si mantiene un contatto costante con il proprio cliente e si sostituisce in maniera ottimale l’incontro dal vivo;
  • Girare video tutorial: oltre a tenere i contatti con il proprio cliente, è necessario rafforzare il rapporto esistente. Realizzare delle video istruzioni che servono proprio a questo e aiutano nella ricerca di nuovi clienti;
  • Video tecnici: i video tecnici possono sostituire in toto la visita allo stand. Tramite questa tipologia è possibile illustrare un macchinario e il suo funzionamento come se l’interazione avvenisse dal vivo.

L’azienda torna centrale

Sembra scontato dirlo, ma l’incontro virtuale non è in grado di sostituirne uno reale, specialmente se a dover essere sostituita è l’atmosfera che caratterizza le fiere. Ma è uno svantaggio?

Quando un’azienda decide di partecipare a una fiera, sa che molti soldi saranno usati anche per spese di contorno (gadget) oppure spese imposte dall’esterno (quote partecipative per i congressi). Realizzando un incontro virtuale, tutte queste spese sono cancellate. Non solo, si acquista un grande vantaggio: la selezione del pubblico.

L’evento digitale, che si tratti di una sola azienda o di aziende che decidono di collaborare, offre un grande vantaggio: la creazione di video aziendali realizzati appositamente per quell’ occasione e per un uditorio selezionato, nonché realmente interessato agli argomenti proposti.

Le aziende e YouTube

YouTube dà l’opportunità di realizzare dirette sul canale aziendale oppure video Premiere, ovvero riprese on demand trattate come se fossero video in diretta. Tramite la Premiere è possibile gestire i rapporti con gli utenti senza il bisogno di allestire la strumentazione necessaria alla diretta.

Quando una diretta streaming è necessaria?

Ricordiamo che anche ora che gli uffici non sono del tutto operativi, gli impiegati e i professionisti lavorano da casa grazie allo smart working. Quindi, chiediamoci se è necessario fissare un appuntamento a un numero di persone che devono collegarsi contemporaneamente.

Nel caso in cui l’incontro necessitasse un rapporto interattivo tra uditori e relatore e nel caso in cui si volessero fare annunci importanti, proporre un’offerta oppure presentare una novità, le dirette streaming sono consigliate. Se fosse necessario il passaggio di informazioni tra gli utenti, le trasmissioni in diretta streaming in modo interattivo danno l’opportunità di scambiarsi commenti tramite le chat oppure attraverso i forum, che rimangono operativi anche quando la diretta è conclusa.

Per invitare i clienti a partecipare alla diretta streaming, sarebbe opportuno creare delle mailing list così da avvisare ognuno dei partecipanti con anticipo.

Per quanto riguarda, invece, la promozione o la presentazione dei prodotti, basterà realizzare dei video on demand, ovvero video aziendali già registrati, che possono essere visualizzati dagli utenti in ogni momento. Questa soluzione è versatile, si può utilizzare per diversi scopi: si può spiegare come funziona un macchinario oppure come un prodotto viene realizzato. È utilizzabile anche per realizzare demo oppure è possibile isolare i diversi interventi fatti da relatori diversi su temi differenti.

Un video industriale che ha al centro un unico argomento è un vantaggio per l’utente, che ha così modo di concentrarsi solo su quello. La soglia dell’attenzione rimane alta e può decidere autonomamente quando visualizzare il contributo video messo a disposizione.

Le playlist su YouTube

Un’altra funzionalità del canale aziendale YouTube è quella che riguarda la realizzazione di playlist, che solitamente hanno un titolo ben riconoscibile e in cui si includono tutti i video che hanno trattato quella tematica. Questo è un aspetto da non sottovalutare, specialmente perché non tutti hanno una connessione stabile che permetta di partecipare alle dirette.

Che si tratti di video estrapolati da dirette o di video on demand, la playlist è una soluzione vantaggiosa per puntare l’attenzione su di un argomento specifico.

Dispositivi mobili

I contenuti video sono spesso fruiti attraverso dispositivi mobili, quali cellullari oppure tablet. Indipendentemente che si abbia a che fare con tutorial oppure video istruzioni e video preregistrati, si consiglia di ottimizzare e adattare il prodotto video al formato verticale per i piccoli schermi dei dispositivi mobili.

È importante che questa tipologia di video sia breve, perché l’utente è così spronato a tenere l’attenzione più a lungo, ad esempio tramite l’utilizzo di grafiche animate che spiegano i concetti fondamentali; un video breve riesce anche a veicolare un maggior numero di informazioni più efficacemente.

Botanica a distanza, visite guidate e percorsi digitali: la ripresa post Covid-19 passa dalla rete degli Orti Botanici della Lombardia Fri, 22 May 2020 20:07:23 +0200 RedazioneSB RedazioneSB Mentre l’Italia abbraccia la fase 2 e corre veloce verso la fase 3, desiderosa di lasciarsi alle spalle l’incubo del lockdown, la natura risplende. E la Rete degli Orti Botanici della Lombardia ne celebra la meraviglia, preparandosi a riaprire i suoi giardini.

La riapertura sarà segnata da tante novità, tra percorsi ad anello, visite per le famiglie e percorsi autoguidati tematici, che saranno messi a disposizione dei visitatori sotto forma di pdf scaricabili da sito per visitare in autonomia le collezioni.

Altra novità riguarda il progetto Botanica a distanza dei Servizi educativi. Una proposta che risponde alle esigenze della nuova didattica. Perché anche in una situazione così eccezionale, gli Orti Botanici continuano ad essere a fianco della scuola, dando la possibilità agli insegnanti di integrare le lezioni online con interessanti spunti per condurre attività pratiche e approfondimenti multimediali. Attraverso un processo co-creativo realizzato a più mani con gli insegnanti, i Servizi Educativi degli Orti hanno infatti predisposto materiali innovativi, per stimolare l’osservazione e la sperimentazione.

Il tutto, mentre la natura si prepara a una nuova, intensa, stagione estiva. Le gemme sono diventate fiori, le clorofille regalano sempre nuove sfumature di verde, gli impollinatori continuano a darsi un gran da fare, attirati dai colori e dai profumi, tra poco compariranno i primi frutti.

Un universo che i giardinieri degli Orti hanno curato con dedizione, rispettando le restrizioni e le indicazioni ministeriali, nell’attesa di poterne presto condividere la meraviglia con tutti i visitatori e di celebrarne la bellezza con la grande festa degli Orti in programma per la settimana del 21 giugno, il solstizio d’estate. Una XVII edizione che arriva in concomitanza con l’”Anno internazionale della salute delle piante” – indetto dalla FAO - invitando tutti gli amanti della natura a riflettere su quanto le piante siano portatrici di benessere e su quanto sia importante il compito degli Orti, veri custodi della biodiversità. Per l’occasione, saranno organizzati incontri digitali, workshop, visite virtuali e in presenza con ingressi contingentati.

«In questo periodo, in cui le nostre consuetudini hanno subito uno arresto forzato, la natura non si è fermata. Ed è da essa che, oggi più che mai, dobbiamo lasciarci ispirare. La natura ci mostra di continuo spirito di adattamento, capacità di resilienza e desiderio di rinascita. Stagione dopo stagione, essa si rinnova e innova con inesauribile ottimismo. Riaprire gli orti della nostra Rete è, perciò, un inno alla vita» - dichiara Martin Kater, presidente della Rete degli Orti Botanici della Lombardia. E aggiunge - «In quanto veri e propri “musei all’aperto”, gli orti daranno la possibilità ai visitatori di godere della bellezza della natura in totale sicurezza. Con una peculiarità: l’esperienza di visita era e resta interattiva e inclusiva. Siamo convinti, infatti, che per apprezzare appieno gli orti della nostra Rete sia fondamentale fare esperienza diretta con le piante e il paesaggio e che proprio da questa esperienza possano nascere emozioni positive che potranno dare a tutti noi la giusta spinta per ripartire».

Ogni Orto botanico riaprirà con tempistiche e modalità specifiche. Agli Orti di Bergamo Città Alta e di Astino, già aperti, si aggiungeranno a partire dal 22 maggio Villa Carlotta, dal 23 l’Orto botanico di Pavia (solo per il sabato e la domenica, con orario eccezionale dalle 10.00 alle 20.00); a partire da giugno, gli Orti di Brera e Città Studi a Milano e di Toscolano Maderno (BS); infine da luglio, riaprirà l’Orto di Bormio (SO). In tutte le sedi gli ingressi saranno contingentati e si consiglia, prima della visita, di consultare il sito dell’Orto di riferimento per verificare eventuali variazioni di orario.

Supermicro presenta il Retail Edge intelligente: soluzioni complesse per applicazioni con carichi di lavoro intensi per IoT


NodeWeaver e NetFoundry collaborano con Supermicro per offrire ai punti vendita una piattaforma per accelerare la trasformazione digitale

SAN JOSE, California, 22 maggio 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI), azienda leader globale per le soluzioni informatiche aziendali, per lo storage, il collegamento in rete e per soluzioni tecnologiche rispettose dell'ambiente, ha annunciato una piattaforma avanzata e personalizzabile destinata agli ambienti per la vendita al dettaglio e alle catene commerciali. La nuova piattaforma di Supermicro unisce configurazioni hardware/software sperimentate per fare fronte alla richiesta di elaborazione dei numerosi dati che provengono dalla sempre maggiore distribuzione di IoT e di altri dispositivi informatici che interagiscono tra loro. 

La Retail Edge intelligente di Supermicro mette a disposizione una piattaforma operativa definita dal software che semplifica notevolmente la distribuzione, gestione, orchestrazione, e il collegamento in rete di infrastrutture e applicazioni Edge. La piattaforma può essere eseguita sull'IoT di Supermicro e su hardware edge, spaziando da piccoli dispositivi edge e server edge completi da rack in grado di supportare GPU, FPGA e altre tecnologie.

"La soluzione Retail Edge intelligente di Supermicro offre ai rivenditori il motore di cui hanno bisogno per offrire in modo efficiente ai propri clienti tecnologie e servizi innovativi," ha dichiarato Raju Penumatcha, Vicepresidente Senior e Direttore dei prodotti, Supermicro. "Realizzata sfruttando la flessibilità dell'architettura Building Block Solutions® di Supermicro e con il software all'avanguardia dei nostri partners, questa soluzione è ottimizzata per affrontare alcune delle sfide che il settore della rivendita al dettaglio deve affrontare oggi."

La Retail Edge intelligente di Supermicro viene offerta in tre diverse configurazioni cluster certificate che sfruttano la piattaforma SuperServer, già utilizzata nel settore, e ottimizzata per punti vendita di dimensioni specifiche e per soddisfare le richieste del carico di lavoro originato dalle applicazioni.

  • La piattaforma cluster di livello base sfrutta E100, un piccolo server gateway potente e senza ventole IoT/Edge per punti vendita piccoli soggetti a limitazioni di spazio ed energia elettrica, come ad esempio i negozi di alimentari e casalinghi o ristoranti, con carichi di lavoro di base come ad esempio quelli da POS, videosorveglianza, e gestione degli inventari.
  • Un cluster più convenzionale che richiede un server versatile, con elevate prestazioni IoT/Edge basato su E300, con ingombro ridotto e acustica di elevato livello per punti vendita di medie dimensioni in cui vengono eseguite più applicazioni in modalità edge.
  • Configurazione cluster di fascia alta che utilizza 1019/5019, un server edge generoso, poco profondo, montato su rack con molto spazio per lo storage e diverse possibilità per il collegamento in rete e supporto per gli acceleratori e le tecnologie GPU richieste per le applicazioni di Intelligenza Artific! iale/Mach ine Learning per punti vendita che mede-grandi dimensioni, quali drogherie e punti vendita al dettaglio di medie dimensioni.

Sviluppata da una collaborazione con NodeWeaver e NetFoundry, la piattaforma integrata Retail Edge di Supermicro supporta cluster da piccole a grandi dimensioni destinati ad applicazioni per la vendita al dettaglio.

"La tecnologia per la vendita la dettaglio si trova all'inizio di una nuova era che promette di rivoluzionare l'esperienza del cliente, aumentare le efficienze e ridurre i costi," ha dichiarato Carlo Daffara, Amministratore Delegato e co-fondatore di NodeWeaver, fornitore di software edge fabric unversale. "Nel momento in cui il calcolo distribuito assume un'importanza sempre più critica per le operazioni di vendita al dettaglio, queste piattaforme devono essere distribuite, gestite, ricevere manutenzione, e protette su grande scala. Retail Edge di Supermicro offre una piattaforma operativa di base per questo livello distribuito di calcolo, e NodeWeaver con orgoglio fa parte di questa soluzione."

Poter offrire un collegamento in rete affidabile e sicuro può porre delle sfide negli ambienti edge distribuiti, e proteggere i dati dei clienti e dei POS è di estrema importanza negli ambienti destinati alla rivendita al dettaglio. La piattaforma Retail Edge di Supermicro offre una connettività di tipo NaaS (Network-as-a-Service) semplice da distribuire e con la potenza di NetFoundry per mettere a disposizione prestazioni eccezionali, protezione zero-trust (nessuna fiducia), agilità, e semplicità.

"I punti vendita la dettaglio si stanno rinnovando per migliorare le esperienze dei clienti," ha dichiarato Galeal Zino, fondatore, e Amministratore Delegato, NetFoundry. "La soluzione Retail Edge di SuperMicro offre alle applicazioni per la vendita la dettaglio di prossima generazione una piattaforma operativa definita dal software, e la grande capacità di calcolo edge di cui hanno bisogno per perseguire le innovazioni. Per connettere in modo sicuro questi edge per la rivendita la dettaglio con core, cloud, e partner, senza dover gestire altri server per il collegamento in rete, il punto di vendita al dettaglio o il fornitore di soluzioni sfrutta Zero Trust NaaS, con il potente motore di NetFoundry, e integrato nella soluzione grazie alla collaborazione tra Supermicro e NetFoundry."

Il visore adattivo di NodeWeaver consente di avere un'esecuzione sicura e in partizioni di qualsiasi applicazione senza avere il tradizionale carico di lavoro derivante dalla virtualizzazione. I benchmarck iniziali sulle prestazioni hanno evidenziato che la piattaforma è in grado di eseguire applicazioni con prestazioni che sono vicine alle esecuzioni su bare metal, pur mantenendo la capacità di offrire elevata disponibilità e una flessibilità simile a quella degli ambienti cloud.

PRN: Hohem iSteady X - The Next Dark Horse to Lead the Smartphone Gimbal Industry Fri, 22 May 2020 15:09:53 +0200 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Hohem iSteady X - The Next Dark Horse to Lead the Smartphone Gimbal Industry


SHENZHEN, China, May 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyone is trying to make better Smartphone Gimbal. Today, for most companies, this means a lightweight stabilizer. The same goes for Hohem's iSteady X.

Hohem introduced a very attractive feature for its iSteady X: by maintaining the Pro stabilization of the 3-axis system, it greatly reduced its weight to only 259 grams, and increases the payload up to 280g.


  • Stabilizing Quality
  • Flexibility
  • iSteady 3-Axis System

Eliminate Shaking

Hohem's stabilizer has an all-new folding design and locking mechanism, which can provide better stabilization for videos and take up less space. In general, high motion videos and shaky movements can destroy the content, especially for smartphone users. That is why more users choose to have an advanced mobile gimbal to handle the shaky movements and obtain the improved quality of the video. Due to the range of movement, there is no guarantee to get smooth content with a simple handheld stick or with bare hands. Therefore, the best way is to use a high-end gimbal just like iSteady X and completely change the way of making videos.  


In terms of flexibility, Hohem continues to improve its smartphone gimbal technology with the launch of iSteady X. By greatly reducing the weight of the stabilizer, iSteady X still has excellent handling features with 3-axis. Meaning that the users can flip, film and shoot video thanks to the pan motor designed with rotatable 3-axis system. Most importantly, iSteady X also gives users the flexibility of a wearable gimbal for situations such as climbing and riding. In addition, the Smart iSteady X works with IOS or Android systems.

iSteady 3-Axis System

The 3-axis 'active' system: Tilt, Roll and Pan. The 3-axis system in the gimbal helps to set the camera in a stable position. With this, users are easily able to capture smooth videos.

Although there are various gimbals available on the market, Hohem has not only achieved its technology upgrade, but also improved the user experience: making it an easily used device. For those who love video shooting, iSteady X is an excellent choice.

Cibo e vini di qualità si valorizzano a vicenda, come i testaroli e i vini rossi toscani del podere Fedespina Fri, 22 May 2020 14:51:48 +0200 BIZCOMIT.IT BIZCOMIT.IT Uno dei cibi tipici della cucina della Lunigiana, i testaroli al pesto, piatto povero della tradizione contadina che si prepara in modo semplice mescolando acqua, farina e sale, sono in perfetto abbinamento con il vino Spinorosso del podere Fedespina perché la sapidità e la consistenza di questa pasta si sposa in modo eccellente con la freschezza e la persistenza di questo ottimo nettare bruno

Per chi non li conoscesse, i testaroli sono l’antico antenato della pasta, un prodotto gastronomico toscano, del territorio della Lunigiana; prendono il nome dal recipiente di cottura, il cosiddetto Testo che anticamente era un disco di terra refrattaria e oggi una formella circolare di metallo. I testaroli sono un piatto povero della tradizione contadina che si prepara solamente mescolando acqua, farina e sale e versando il composto liquido all’interno del testo.

I vini di qualità fanno emergere il sapore dei piatti poveri e squisiti

Per fare i testaroli, il contenitore viene posizionato direttamente sul fuoco a legna tramite un apposito supporto e viene ricoperto da un consistente strato di cenere nella parte superiore in modo da garantire la cottura su entrambi i lati. Dopo dieci minuti di cottura si può far riposare il composto e tagliarlo a piacimento, a losanghe, quadrettoni o lunghe strisce. Per cuocere il testarolo si mette a bollire abbondante acqua salata e, una volta raggiunta l’ebollizione, si spegne il fuoco e si immergono i testaroli, lasciandoli a bagno un minuto con il coperchio. Una volta tolti dall’acqua delicatamente con un mestolo forato, si possono condire a piacimento.

Cibi e vini di qualità: la degustazione, un rito ancestrale

Uno dei condimenti migliori per i testaroli è il pesto fatto in casa nella versione della nonna, con basilico, olio d’oliva e pinoli e aggiunta di pecorino. Per quanto riguarda l’abbinamento di questo piatto con il vino, sebbene possa risultare insolito per i tradizionalisti e il pesto richiami solitamente il vino bianco, suggeriamo un abbinamento con il vino rosso, in particolare lo Spinorosso del podere Fedespina perché la sapidità e la consistenza dei testaroli si sposano bene con la freschezza e la persistenza di questo ottimo nettare degli Dei.

Spinorosso del Podere Fedespina

Lo Spinorosso del Podere Fedespina è un vino rosso toscano dell’alta Lunigiana che proviene dai vigneti ai piedi dell’Appenino Tosco-Emiliano, tra le colline del comune di Mulazzo ove Dante Alighieri fu ospite in esilio della famiglia Malaspina all’inizio del XIV secolo. E’ ottenuto dall’assemblaggio di Merlot e Ciliegiolo, tramite la riduzione massima degli interventi sia nella lavorazione della vigna che in cantina ed è appunto un vino versatile che si abbina facilmente a tutto il pasto, specialmente alle paste condite, ai salumi e ai formaggi. La facile beva e freschezza e il naso floreale e aromatico si abbinano, come abbiamo detto, a numerosi piatti della tradizione lunigianese, primo tra tutti i testaroli al pesto.

10th anniversary of Israeli Attack on The Mavi Marmara (Gaza Freedom Flotilla) live online discussion 2020 May 30th with filmmaker Iara Lee whose crew smuggled out assault footage, author Dr. Norman Finkelstein and ship survivors

On May 30 at 10 am PDT, the Gaza Freedom Flotilla Coalition will mark the tenth anniversary of the attack on the Mavi Marmara with a Q&A discussion. Lee will be joined by fellow passengers, as well as by internationally renowned author Norman Finkelstein. This event is a part of a series of webinars to commemorate those killed in the attack and to remember the thousands of Palestinians in Gaza, the West Bank, and Is rael who have been killed by the Israeli military.

This webinar will feature the firsthand remembrance of what happened on the Mavi Marmara, a discussion of the blockade of Gaza and its impact on all aspects of life in Gaza over the past decade.

The Israeli naval blockade was broken in 2008 when several boats of the Free Gaza Movement entered Gaza City Harbor, the first international boats in 41 years to arrive in Gaza. But since 2008, the Israeli government has stopped boats in 2010, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2016, and 2018 in international waters, arrested passengers, taken them to Israel, imprisoned, and deported them. Nevertheless, the Gaza Freedom Flotilla Coalition is committed to keep sailing to break the illegal Israeli naval blockade of Gaza until Gaza/Palestine is free.

Iara Lee, founder of Cultures of Resistance, collaborates with agitators, artists and changemakers to make social justice documentaries and to promote global solidarity.

Norman Finkelstein, Ph.D., Princeton University Politics Department, is an author dedicated to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and the politics of the Holocaust.

Ritorna Dico NO alla droga Puglia con un altro webinar gratuito di prevenzione.

Martedì 26 maggio alle ore 18.00 i volontari dell’O.d.V. Dico NO alla droga Puglia discuteranno della guida in sicurezza e degli effetti che causano a quest’ultima l’alcol e le sostanze stupefacenti.

Ne parleranno l’Avvocato Barbara Fortunato, Presidente dell’associazione, Pierpaolo Ramondetta, Vicepresidente, la Dott.ssa Doda Renzetti, Responsabile del Reparto di Medicina del Mater Day e Seg. Della Società Italiana Alcologia, l’Avvocato Giampiero Milone, Penalista del Foro di Bari e ci sarà una testimonianza a cura di Feliciana Galtieri.

Dall’inizio della quarantena i volontari di Dico NO alla droga Puglia, hanno subito iniziato a fare questi webinar gratuiti per non fermare la prevenzione e il loro messaggio “No alla droga!”.

A nessuno – in particolare ai giovani – piace sentire una predica su ciò che si deve o non si deve fare. Per questa ragione l’O.d.V. fornisce informazioni scientifiche e non valutazioni morali, che permettono ai giovani di comprendere cosa è effettivamente la droga, in modo che una persona possa valutare in modo indipendente e decidere di non assumere droga in primo luogo.

“L’arma più efficace nella guerra contro le droghe è l’istruzione.” scrisse l’umanitario L. Ron Hubbard

Per questo da anni l’associazione si presta negli istituti di istruzione, eventi sportivi, fiere ed altri momenti di incontro, così da informare giovani, genitori e insegnanti sulle reali conseguenze dell’abuso delle sostanze stupefacenti.

Il webinar è aperto a tutti. Conferma la tua partecipazione al 347.7023651 (Barbara) o scrivendo a .

PRN: Virtual School Open Days as Inspired Group's schools help thousands of parents searching for September school places Fri, 22 May 2020 11:45:41 +0200 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Virtual School Open Days as Inspired Group's schools help thousands of parents searching for September school places


-  Bespoke, virtual school tours launched to help anxious parents.

-  Face to face on-line meetings, interviews with Head Teachers & Department Heads, multimedia tours of facilities, services and teaching methods, teaching and class demonstrations

-  Launched in 33 Inspired schools across Europe

-  Over 800 families have selected an 'Inspired' school since lockdown

-  "We're very proud of the way our outstanding teachers implemented synchronous virtual learning within hours of closure at every Inspired school around the world.  Now they have been joined by our admissions teams across the globe in supporting parents and families to continue their educational journey", says founder Nadim M Nsouli

LONDON, May 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- With the majority of schools across the world still closed, many parents are left with the challenge of finding and selecting school places for September from home. Following its rapid implementation of continuous, live streamed virtual learning to over 50,000 students worldwide, leading independent schools Group, Inspired, has launched "Virtual Open Days" via an innovative and tailored one to one "e-school visit" for families who are in still in search of a school place for their children.

Following the success of the e-learning programme set up by Inspired Education Group (founded by Nadim M Nsouli) for its students during the Covid-19 pandemic, the group has launched a bespoke "Virtual Open Day" in 33 schools across Europe, for families still looking for school places for the new academic year.  Since lockdown began on 23rd March 2020, Inspired has seen a rapid increase in on-line admission enquiries, up 137% compared to last year.

"In the e-learning programme implemented in our schools, we committed to maintaining the excellence of our academic and pastoral care provisions, ensuring engagement and emotional connection of the students. We felt we needed to follow the same approach to prospective families across Europe who are now worried that schools may not open in time to make a physical visit and final selection before the new academic year begins in September," explains James Day, Head of Admissions for Europe for Inspired.

Many schools have done group introductions to schools online which parents have commented are 'difficult' environments to ask the often personal questions which mean making the right school choice ahead of the Autumn term starting in September. "We wanted to offer a quality and personalised 'school e-visit' to families who risked having to make a critical decision on very limited information", continues James Day.

The "Virtual Open Days" have been designed to be interactive, informative and illustrative. In order to make up for the physical distance between parents and school, the format combines an online one to one meeting and a series of specially created multimedia presentations designed to share a clear visualisation of facilities, services, and teaching methods. In addition, parents can speak with academic leaders, ask them questions and learn first-hand all about both teaching and pastoral approaches - and values. The system was first trialled in Inspired schools in Vietnam where prolonged closures were causing distress for parents wanting to visit schools to make a final selection.  

"Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions a parent has to make. The current situation has disrupted parents' plans to visit schools which prevents them being able to talk to the academic staff and get a feel for the school's atmosphere, culture and values. With our bespoke virtual school tour, we provide a clear idea of what we stand for and we can offer parents an opportunity to interview us privately to ask questions relevant to their child which might be more difficult to ask in a public forum", explains Andrew Towes, of Reddam House School in Berkshire.

"At Inspired, we set new standards in education, but more than that, our philosophy is to prepare children for life. We have to lead the way and practice what we teach, by preparing and dealing with whatever life presents us. We're very proud of the way our outstanding teachers implemented synchronous virtual learning within hours of closure at every Inspired school around the world.  Now they have been joined by our admissions teams across the globe in supporting parents and families to continue their educational journey", said Nadim M Nsouli, Inspired Founder, Chairman & CEO.

'Literary Conversations Across Borders' Project Launched by the Emirates Literature Foundation

New digital project will host live debate between Emirati experts and leading international commentators


DUBAI, UAE, May 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- A new initiative to promote international cultural understanding through the power of books and words has been launched by the Emirates Literature Foundation.

To view the Multimedia News Release, please click:

Emirates Airline Festival of Literature

Called 'Literary Conversations Across Borders', the project will use a digital platform to host Emirati writers and commentators in live discussions with high profile experts from around the world on a variety of critical topics.

The series will launch on Saturday 30 May 2020 at 17:30 (GST) UAE, 14:30 (BST) UK, 19:30 (IST) India, 09:30 (EDT) US, with the intellectual, writer and Indian politician Shashi Tharoor and His Excellency Zaki Nusseibeh Minister of State: Office of Cultural Diplomacy UAE who will debate how the events of 2020 will change the course of history, for better or worse.

Isobel Abulhoul, CEO and Trustee of the Emirates Literature Foundation said that the project was timely and that it was important to continue international dialogue during the current crisis: "Having these conversations across cultures strengthens our bonds and brings greater appreciation of the topics that affect us in the world today, no matter where we live. We originally planned 'Literary Conversations Across Borders' as a travelling project, taking Emirati authors and experts to book fairs and literary festivals throughout the world. World events have conspired to make that not possible at the moment, however we have grasped the initiative and re-designed it, with discussion being taken into the heart of people's homes, recognising the common concerns, joys and sorrows that affect us all, no matter who we are."

Future editions of the series will feature Jane Goodall, one of the world's best-known scientists and environmentalists on 6 June in a discussion with the UAE Minister of State for Food Security, Her Excellency Mariam bint Mohammed Al Mheiri.

Will science be the new religion in the post-pandemic world? is the question that will be posed in a frank examination by His Excellency Omar Ghobash Assistant Minister, Office of Cultural Diplomacy and Lesley Hazleton, award-winning journalist and author of The First Muslim. They will consider whether an increased appreciation for the factual certainties of science, following the leading role it has played in tackling the pandemic, will have an impact on our belief systems based on the intangibles of faith, hope and trust. This debate will take place on 13 June.

There will be eight sessions in this first series. Further details and more authors will be announced shortly.

The sessions are free to watch but pre-registration  is required. After the event the session will be hosted on the Emirates Literature Foundation YouTube channel. Full details on the upcoming programme will be available on the Emirates Literature Foundation website.
