GIS Day 2018 Showcases Location Intelligence around the World

gbafNews28

Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, today announced that the twentieth annual GIS Day will take place on November 14, 2018. The day is a celebration of GIS software and unites the geospatial community in a global movement of collaboration, sharing, and education. This year’s celebration will also feature the launch of Geography.com, a collaboration between Esri and the American Association of Geographers (AAG) intended to capture the interest of those seeking general information on geography.

GIS Day brings together users of the software from private industries, educational institutions, government agencies, and nonprofits to build a stronger understanding of the world we live in through the demonstration of real-world applications. Every day, GIS software is making a positive difference across our planet, benefiting the lives of millions of people. The technology, which provides location intelligence and analytics, allows users to gain deeper insights into data, solve problems, and make smarter decisions about land use, energy, water, natural hazards, biodiversity, climate, and other key issues of the twenty-first century.

“We are excited to recognize all the many organizations and individuals that contribute to the GIS community,” said Jack Dangermond, Esri founder and president. “With GIS, they are meeting challenges ranging from natural disaster management to increasing supply chain efficiency. We are also proud to join with AAG in inspiring a new generation of GIS professionals with the science of geography and maps.”

While GIS Day is observed on one day in November each year, Esri encourages people to find out more about GIS throughout the year via Esri Press books, the company’s massive open online course (MOOC) program, training courses through your local university or community college, and gisday.com. And now, with the launch of Geography.com, those new to location intelligence can begin to explore the ways that mapping serves as a fundamental language for understanding the world.

Share what you are doing on GIS Day by attending an open house, making a visit to a school or university, or participating in a webinar. Join the movement and register your GIS Day event today!

Longenesis has created an end-to-end environment for biomedical institutions, patient organizations and research partners and sponsors – to communicate directly, enabling both safe data curation and compliant, consent-enabled biomedical data utilization for research.

"At Deep Longevity we are working on creating a network of hospitals and clinics that will have access to our aging clocks. To enable this network, we are aiming to create a federated learning pipeline, that will allow us to train multiple new aging clocks without the need to transfer user data", explains Polina Mamoshina, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer of Deep Longevity, a Regent Pacific company.

"Longenesis is a company invested by LongeVC, a venture fund, and accelerator dedicated to growing the longevity ecosystem in the European Union. Over the past few years, Longenesis developed a range of technologies to help protect user privacy and manage consent to help companies provide the individuals with more tools to take control over their data", said Garry Zmudze, founding partner of LongeVC, an investor in both Longenesis and Deep Longevity.

"At Longenesis we believe that the need for centralized, compliant and seamless biomedical data asset identification is crucial for collaborative research initiation, faster patient recruitment and timely response to global healthcare challenges. We are looking forward to this collaboration, creating a federated learning pipeline and embracing the "data stays local" principle at the same time", says Sergejs Jakimovs, a CEO of Longenesis.

Speakhumanity to Launch “Make Everyone Great Again” to Promote World Peace and Social-Distancing

gbafNews28

Speakhumanity, a Hong Kong-based clothing brand founded by world-loving enthusiasts that span every industry, this week announced they will be launching their first campaign on kickstarter, Make Everyone Great Again, on November 2, 2020 at 8 am EST.

In an effort to promote simple, yet influential social awareness that supports wearing masks, practicing social distancing, and uniting everyone around the world, Make Everyone Great Again is a non-biased political movement that is available to everyone determined to stop spreading hatred and speed up global recovery as the number one goal every global citizen should be working on.

Speakhumanity has contacted Billboard agencies around the world in a collaborative effort to launch this groundbreaking campaign, said Bella Anderson, co-Founder of Speakhumanity. Its up to every world citizen to decide if they want to partake and be part of an anti-hate solution. Human beings have more in common than they may realize. This campaign is designed to make that apparent.

Speakhumanity is releasing different apparel items with their unifying Make Everyone Great Again slogan to spread the word. The brand is determined to become one that does not carry any political or racial bias, solely based on the desire to promote good will messages that benefit every country, political party, and person.

Incorporating a community element that encourages conversation and engagement, Speakhumanity will allow any person to share their message to the team. Messages will be considered for new t-shirts and products, as well as promoted by campaign-level advertisement.

This world cannot heal itself unless humanity comes together in an effort to battle economic, political, and pandemic-fueled challenges, said Anderson. Too many brands are afraid to encourage mask-wearing and strong social-distancing mandates, in an effort to make as much money as possible. Speakhumanity is hoping to change the conversation.

Speakhumanity has already printed the following slogans on their products: Mask Please, Global Recovery 2020, social distance, and Make Everyone Great Again. The brand is now hosting a Kickstarter campaign in an effort to pool community funds and resources for their platform launch, gather enough attention to create an ultimate world changing campaign level movement for the global recovery every global citizen has been long waiting for.
