The need for a viable means of neutralizing bacteria and viruses is something that most facility management teams were likely less concerned about than after the novel coronavirus began to make its way from Wuhan, China to virtually every corner of the globe. At some point in 2020, it was obvious to facility managers that an effective means of disinfection was necessary on a facility-wide basis if office buildings, hospitals, grocery stores, clinics, and others were to reopen and remain so.
“Now more than ever, with this pandemic, companies around the globe are looking for ways to continue their operation, or reopen and to ensure that their employees or occupants stay healthy and safe in an environment designed with safety in mind,” says Joe Semaan, business leader, digital solutions Americas, with Signify of Somerset, NJ.
This is where germicidal UV comes into play. It adds an extra layer of disinfection beyond current protocols used by cleaning crews. Semaan says, “This is essentially an additional layer of protection that can help building occupants feel safer because UV-C is, in itself, a fast, effective way to deactivate harmful viruses on surfaces, in the air, and on objects.”
Monitaur Uses Industry Traction to Successfully Close $2.6 Million in Funding | #TpromoCom #AI #ArtificialIntelligence #Business | Growing demand for AI and ML solutions in insurance exposes market need for governance, transparency, and auditability https://bit.ly/3ff4Cir
BOSTON, May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Monitaur, developer of machine learning (ML) assurance technology, is pleased to announce the company has successfully closed an oversubscribed funding round of $2.6 million that included TechStars, MTech Capital, Hub Angels, and other prominent angel investors, which will accelerate hiring for technical and market-facing teams for insurance, a first mover industry for ML assurance.
Recent research by KPMG and Boston Consulting Group (BCG) highlights accelerated investment in AI during the pandemic, but also mounting concerns about risks and a lag in the implementation of responsible AI governance programs.
Governance initiatives around artificial intelligence (AI) and ML deployments are intensifying because these solutions are increasingly making high-impact decisions about the health, finances, employment, and safety of individuals and must be assured to be fair, safe, compliant, and accountable. Recognizing the potential risks of complex decision systems, the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), for example, is ramping regulatory scrutiny focused on protecting consumers from model-based racial and gender bias in underwriting, product development, and pricing.

Factories are changing. And fast. Volume production, while still important, is quickly being replaced by value creation that’s driven by digital transformation and dynamic, intelligent operations.
In addition to predictive analytics and artificial intelligence, a key enabler of the smart factory of tomorrow is sensor technology. Internet of Things (IoT) sensors placed on equipment, raw materials and workers provide a continuous flow of real-time data on movement, location, operating conditions, and other important parameters.
