  • Enabling Content in Chatbots and AI: Part II — The Microcontent Solution
    Enabling Content in Chatbots and AI: Part II — The Microcontent Solution Steve Manning Mar 13 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    On December 12, 2017, Steve Manning presented a discussion on how new technology will change the way we approach content. The addition of Bots, voice-enabled interfaces, and Artificial Intelligence means we must change the way we structure content. We are moving from a broadcast style of communication – publish and hope for the best – to a more conversational style of communication. More question and answer.

    This imposes requirements on the content models you need to create if you want to talk to the Bots. We must be more granular in our models. We need to implement Microcontent.

    In Part II of this series, Steve will go a little deeper. He will discuss the language of bots/AI: intents, attributes, and assets. Then he’ll relate that to how the granularity you design into your models, the semantic labels you apply to elements, and the taxonomy you capture in creation can make or break your ability to publish DITA content to the new technologies. The session will include real-world scenarios that rely on a microcontent strategy.

  • Privacy in a Biometric World
    Privacy in a Biometric World Arun Ross, Professor, MSU | Asem Othman, Lead Biometric Scientist, Veridium Mar 15 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    As biometric systems become ubiquitous across the globe for unlocking our smartphones and authenticating financial transactions, privacy remains a significant concern for many. Consumers and businesses alike need assurances that biometric data is kept safe and secure, regardless of how it is being used. Biometric systems being deployed in business, government, law enforcement, and beyond need protection against surreptitious cross-linking of data across applications or gleaning personal information about an individual from the data.

    No one wants financial institutions to assess their personal health from the facial image they use to unlock their banking app. This is why privacy-enhancing biometric templates will play an essential role in biometric authentication platforms of the future.

    In this webinar we’ll discuss:
    • How organizations could abuse biometric data to learn information about customers
    • Methods for modifying biometric data so that private information cannot be gleaned from it
    • Methods for assessing the degree of privacy needed in any biometric system deployment
  • Office 365 As A Content Services Hub? Seriously!
    Office 365 As A Content Services Hub? Seriously! Steffen Frederiksen Mar 15 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Do you have Office 365 in your organization? You may not realize it, but you already have the perfect solution for delivering the right information to the right people, at the right time, in the right format and language – and on the device of their choosing.

    Most content services hubs are expensive and complicated. Office 365 is an affordable, cloud-based, scalable platform that allows you to build content for a future of AI, machine-learning, chatbots, and machine-to-machine communication. It enables everyone, whether experienced in content architectures like DITA and XML or not, to use Microsoft Word and other familiar tools to create and share content in real time. Gartner recognized Microsoft as a leader in the Content Management Platform Magic Quadrant in 2017. Find out why!

    Join The Content Wrangler and our special guest, Steffen Frederiksen, for this free, one-hour webinar, and learn exactly why and how Office 365 is a great platform for authoring, managing, and delivering the content of the future. Attendees will also learn the benefits that come with using it, as well as be taken through a specific use case in financial services.

  • How can IP insurance lower risks in your business?
    How can IP insurance lower risks in your business? Erik Alsegard from CFC Underwriting and Ruta @ PatSnap Mar 21 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The primary reason why people register their IP - including trademarks patents - is to protect their ideas from being used and monetized by others. Companies across the world spend trillions of dollars on research and patent thousands of new technologies each year, so why would you ever need IP insurance?

    We see dozens of cases each year where companies and individuals are claiming infringement upon their IP and that's when IP insurance comes into play.

    PatSnap is joined by Erik Alsegard, IP Practice Leader and Lewis Parle, In-House Solicitor and IP Underwriter, from CFC Underwriting to discuss the whys and hows of IP Insurance.

    Join this webinar to learn about the risks of IP, if you should consider insurance and what are the pros and cons of the options available to you when it comes to protecting your Intellectual Property assets.
  • Are Car Companies Going to Profit from Your Driving Data?
    Are Car Companies Going to Profit from Your Driving Data? Niranjan Manohar | Program Manager - Connectivity and Automotive IoT | Mobility | Frost & Sullivan Mar 21 2018 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    The connected car of today generates data from at least 200 different sensors within the vehicle and can profile everything from your location to driving habits. It can also monitor the use of vehicle features such as the temperature in your car and the weather in your surroundings. These data points can typically provide more than 140 viable use cases, but only 15% of these use cases are monetized. Though use cases can be grouped under usage-based insurance (UBI), autonomous vehicles (AVs), crash reconstruction, and location and mapping services, there are several untapped dark horses.
