Go Quantum Today in Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Abu Dhabi, Stockholm, London, Singapore, HK and Mexico City

The Quantum Computing Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders will help CEOs from chemical manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies to oil and gas conglomerates, from aerospace and defense to financial services firms to put Quantum Computing in the works in Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Abu Dhabi, Stockholm, London, Singapore, Hong Kong and Mexico City.

New York City, NY, USA — Today’s computing machinery, which has brought incredible technological innovations over the past decades, still relies on calculations with 1s and 0s, even if the devices are orders of magnitude smaller than the stadium-sized systems of the previous century. Quantum Computing (QC), computing technology’s next generation, holds the promise of new machines operating at one million times the speed of current computers, allowing scientists, for example, to model complex molecular interactions at an atomic level.

QC replaces today’s Boolean logic with quantum law at the algorithmic level. For optimization, sampling or search problems, this promises dramatic speedups. QC will enable solving a set of problems that couldn’t be solved before or could take forever on a classical super computer.

QC’s benefits include efficiently simulating much larger molecules, effectively minimizing the overhead to run complex logistical operations and dramatically reducing the time for advanced portfolio construction optimization, among many others applications.

Furthermore, in the same way that combustion engines and microprocessors once redefined entire industries, QC heralds today the advent of as yet unimagined realms, while also opening new radical avenues for existing industries, such as finance, pharma, oil and gas, and even the acceleration of artificial intelligence.

The Quantum Computing Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders (http://www.gldnacademy.com/quantum-computing-microprocessor-qubit-cryptography-superposition-entanglement-programming-artificial-intelligence-api.html) will show CEOs how to learn to harness the opportunities unveiled by Quantum Computing, how to identify challenges and how to prepare their organizations for what the future holds. Powerful quantum computers will model all 19,000+ proteins in the human genome and simulate how new drugs can cure everything from the common cold to cancer.

Attendees to these 2-day workshops organized by GLDNAcademy.com (http://www.gldnacademy.com) in Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Abu Dhabi, Stockholm, London, Singapore, Hong Kong and Mexico City will:

New York City, NY, USA — Top executives of organizations around the world have heard a lot about artificial intelligence (AI). Within AI, there is machine learning, a technology that enables computers to get better at tasks with more practice. Furthermore, within machine learning, there is deep learning, which involves algorithms by which computers train themselves using multi-layered neural networks (inspired by the human brain) and vast quantities of data.

Deep learning allows computational models that are composed of multiple processing layers to learn representations of data with multiple levels of abstraction. These methods have dramatically improved speech recognition, visual object recognition, object detection and many other domains such as financial trading, transportation, drug discovery and genomics. Deep learning effective and efficiently discovers intricate structure in large data sets by using algorithms to indicate how a machine should change its internal weights and biases that are used to compute the representation in each layer from the representation in the contiguous layer, which have brought about breakthroughs in processing images, video, speech, audio and financial data.

The Deep Learning Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders focuses on practical applications of artificial intelligence for businesses using TensorFlow, the most widely-used deep learning framework from Google. Deep learning is already impacting every part of business today; in fact, PwC has warned that automation could replace 38% of all American jobs by 2030. Deep learning will continue to be a rich source of insights from ever-growing data sets being evaluated by powerful algorithms, enabling companies to make better decisions.

Cybersecurity Insights from Top Expert for CEOs in Malaysia, South Korea, UAE, Sweden, HK and Mexico

The Cybersecurity Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders will help CEOs gain a comprehensive understanding of cybersecurity and its key aspects and discover how to establish or improve their cybersecurity programs in Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Abu Dhabi, Stockholm, Hong Kong and Mexico City.

New York City, NY, USA — Despite the ongoing cyber threat that is witnessed through news reports almost on a daily basis, firms are still neglecting proper cybersecurity planning. As information technology becomes ever more complex and Internet of Things applications progressively widespread, cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly important and business-critical field. Unfortunately, a recent study from security solutions provider Resilient Systems and market research firm Ponemon broke down key areas of continued failure for organizations.

The study found that 66% of IT and security professionals surveyed said their firms were unprepared to recover from a cyber attack, and 75% lacked a formal incident response plan. A key example of this unpreparedness is that fact that many of the companies impacted by the WannaCry ransomware attack had not installed patches in their Windows infrastructure that were released by Microsoft months before. Vulnerabilities in commercial software are common; the only solution is to stay abreast of manufacturer’s releases.

In order to help businesses in their cybersecurity planning, the Cybersecurity Framework released in February 2014 following a collaborative process involving industry, academia and government has been widely adopted by many types of organizations around the world, quickly becoming the de facto standard by which cyber security is going to be measured.

The Cybersecurity Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders (http://www.gldnacademy.com/the-cybersecurity-workshop-for-todays-strategic-leaders.html) will bring leaders up to speed on the most recent and battle-tested approaches to protect their companies’ valuable information and intellectual property from prying eyes of hackers and competitors. Attendees to the program will learn how to apply the Cybersecurity Framework in their organizations and erect strong defenses for their valuable customer and employee data and intellectual property.

Attendees to these 2-day workshops organized by GLDNAcademy.com (http://www.gldnacademy.com) in Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Abu Dhabi, Stockholm, Hong Kong and Mexico City will:

• Gain a comprehensive understanding of cybersecurity and its key aspects
• Get to grips with various cybersecurity testing methods
• Master the cybersecurity framework and its five core functions
• Discover how to establish or improve your cybersecurity program
• Gain an overview of cyber network defense
• Transform the “weak human link” into the organization’s greatest strength

Fulham Transforms Lighting Controls with Introduction of Family of Connected Bluetooth Mesh Products

OEMs and Contractors Now Have Bi-directional Wireless Control Options with Family of Bluetooth Devices and Apps for Lighting Retrofits and New Installations.

Chicago, USA — At LightFair 2018 being held this week at McCormick Place, Fulham will introduce a new line of Bluetooth mesh lighting control systems and software to provide wireless luminaire control and monitoring. Fulham, a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, plans to demonstrate its new Bluetooth mesh connected LED driver, its new 0-10V to Bluetooth Bridge, and a new Bluetooth commissioning app for Apple’s iOS platform.

“The industry has been anticipating sensor-enabled standards-based, wireless lighting controls , but with Bluetooth mesh customers can get two-way lighting communications now,” said Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing for Fulham. “Bluetooth mesh provides superior lighting control – it’s a recognized standard meaning vendors can develop interoperable products, it provides for reliable operation, the technology scales appropriately for lighting systems, and all of us carry mobile phones fully capable of being commissioning devices. Rather than promise IoT in the future, Bluetooth delivers it today.”

The first in Fulham’s new family of Bluetooth mesh LED drivers is a 40W programmable constant current driver that comes with an intelligent wireless Bluetooth dongle and provides two-way wireless communications to commission, operate, monitor, and analyze LED luminaires and lighting installations. This is the first wireless LED driver to provide bidirectional communications and since it is SIG-qualified it can be used to control third-party Bluetooth sensors and switches.

The Bluetooth driver design helps minimize driver inventory while providing maximum versatility. This is a universal 0-10v driver that can be programmed for 110 to 227V input and 250-1500mA output, and the dongle is upgradeable so installers can add Bluetooth mesh support, or it can be outfitted to accommodate other wireless control protocols in the future. The wireless Bluetooth mesh driver is ideal for mid-life luminaire retrofits, allowing customers to upgrade luminaires with energy-saving LEDs today while ensuring those luminaires can accommodate Bluetooth wireless control in the future.

Bluetooth mesh networking also supports many-to-many communications for applications such as building automation and smart cities, so using Bluetooth mesh for lighting controls makes it possible to connect hundreds or thousands of luminaire sensors. Bluetooth mesh also makes it possible to consolidate luminaires and other devices into one, centrally managed infrastructure, laying the foundation building management and even outdoor systems management using IoT (Internet of Things).

“Smart lighting systems will be built on accepted open communications standards such as Bluetooth mesh, and with the introduction of our Bluetooth mesh family of drivers we are providing a new set of adaptable controls that empower our OEM and installer customers,” said Alvaro Garcia, Product Director for LED Emergency and Advanced R&D for Fulham. “These programmable drivers are Bluetooth-ready, so customers can build in wireless control from the outset to futureproof their installations, or they can add Bluetooth communications later. Delivering these mesh-enabled drivers is a major step toward enabling open lighting controls, as well as laying the foundation for IoT infrastructure management.”

Fulham also will introduce the new 0-10V to Bluetooth Bridge that can upgrade any 0-10V luminaire to support Bluetooth mesh. Simply install the Bridge and the luminaire is added to a Bluetooth mesh infrastructure to receive control commands and send data back for performance analytics.

To support the new Bluetooth mesh family of products, Fulham is offering a lighting commissioning app. Currently available for iPhones, iPads, and other iOS-compatible devices, the app can be used to issue instructions to program any Bluetooth mesh-connected luminaire. The commissioning app will be available from the Apple Store. Fulham is making the app readily available at no cost, although fees will be charged based on the number of luminaires being controlled.

Fulham’s Bluetooth mesh products will be demonstrated at LightFair 2018 in Booth 602. For more information, visit http://www.fulham.com.
