CTA Foundation anuncia os vencedores do Concurso de Acessibilidade CES Eureka Park

A Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™ Foundation, uma fundação nacional com a missão de unir idosos e pessoas com deficiência com tecnologias para aprimorar suas vidas, está orgulhosa de anunciar os vencedores do segundo concurso anual de acessibilidade Eureka Park: ActiveProtective, Aira, Bansen Labs, BLITAB e KinTrans. A CTA Foundation fez parceria com a Extreme Tech Challenge para coletar inscrições de mais de 300 startups no mundo inteiro. Cada vencedor receberá um estande no Eureka Park durante a CES® 2017 e um prêmio em dinheiro no valor de US$ 2.500. A CES, o ponto de encontro para o setor de tecnologia global, será realizada entre 5 a 8 de janeiro de 2017 em Las Vegas, Nevada.

“Estamos ansiosos para ver as novas tecnologias que oferecem ferramentas para idosos e pessoas com deficiência, assim como para os seus cuidadores, que permitem uma vida mais saudável e independente”, disse Stephen Ewell, diretor executivo da CTA Foundation. “A tecnologia de acessibilidade está mudando verdadeiramente vidas para melhor e será uma das principais atrações na CES 2017.”

Os vencedores do concurso da CTA Foundation foram selecionados entre as startups emergentes do Eureka Park por suas inovações, que têm potencial para um impacto positivo na vida de idosos e pessoas com deficiência:

  • ActiveProtective: cinto portátil (ou wearable) que desdobra um airbag quando uma queda é detectada para ajudar a prevenir fraturas de quadril em adultos mais velhos.
  • Aira: plataforma que conecta pessoas cegas e com baixa visão com agentes virtuais certificados através de dispositivos portáteis para auxiliar na navegação na vida cotidiana.
  • Bansen Labs: primeiro adaptador universal que permite às pessoas conectar seus dispositivos de assistência às suas tecnologias favoritas.
  • BLITAB: o primeiro tablet tátil do mundo para deficientes visuais que pode exibir uma página inteira de uma vez, sem qualquer elemento mecânico.
  • KinTrans: software de tradução de linguagem de sinais concebido para proporcionar uma comunicação eficaz entre os utilizadores de linguagem gestual e aqueles que utilizam a língua falada.

O Mercado de Acessibilidade é o principal mercado para se ver como a tecnologia acessível proporciona ferramentas para que pessoas com deficiência tenham vidas saudáveis e independentes. Com base na inauguração bem-sucedida do ano passado, o mercado verá um aumento de 50% no número de empresas expositoras e o retorno ao 2o nível do Sands Expo Center no setor Tech West.

Os homenageados deste ano na categoria Tecnologia Acessível do Prêmio de Inovação - uma competição anual que homenageia projetos e a engenharia excepcional em produtos de tecnologia do consumidor - incluem Aipoly Vision, Open Sesame!, ReSound ENZO2, Segina Cellion e 3dRudder. Além disso, haverá duas trilhas de conferência patrocinadas pela CTA Foundation com foco na acessibilidade, incluindo Why Accessibility Matters to Tech Leaders (Por que a acessibilidade importa aos líderes de tecnologia) e Autonomous Vehicles will Aid Independent Living (Veículos autônomos ajudam em uma vida independente).

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership abi...
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...
My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys.

Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor - all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
