Lightricks Ltd., an Israeli startup, was
founded by five entrepreneurs with vast experience in both industry and
academy. With backgrounds in computer graphics, image processing,
machine learning and artificial intelligence, and previous experience at
Adobe, Microsoft and Google, the Lightricks team grew frustrated with
the gap between cutting-edge algorithms and the lack of mobile-first,
powerful and user-friendly image editing tools.
Lightricks developed the LTEngine(TM), a state-of-the-art mobile image
processing engine, and the SafeBrush(TM), a precision tool for the most
accurate results. Building on this technology, Lightricks created the
successful mobile app Facetune, a powerful and fun portrait photo editor
that enables everyday users to easily achieve magazine-level results.
Facetune became the #1 Photo & Video app in 127 countries, was selected
for Apple's Best of 2013, and has been featured in The New York Times,
Wall Street Journal, InStyle, USA Today and other leading media outlets.
Facetune is only the beginning, as Lightricks continues to develop
innovative and accessible image-processing applications that aim to
change the landscape of mobile digital content creation.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
