Canadian technology and professional services company, SolidCAD, announced a partnership with SimpleCloud, provider of SimpleCloud AECM, a cloud-based platform for digital content management and creation to business professionals. The solution provides customers with a fully integrated environment of virtual desks, allowing any user to be connected from anywhere, through any device, ensuring access at any time. SimpleCloud provides dedicated applications for high GPU needs for customers specifically in the Architecture, Construction, Engineering and Manufacturing (AECM) industry.
SimpleCloud offers two types of platforms, a Public Cloud, which creates friendly collaborative environment that allows users to get access to virtual high graphics performance workstations with on-demand specifications, and a Hybrid Cloud option, which meets the needs of companies that already have their own infrastructure but need to extend it by giving access to workers who have geographically dispersed. SimpleCloud has over 60 data centers around the world, and provides services and coverage to the United States, Canada, Mexico, all of Europe, Japan, South Korean and Taiwan. SolidCAD and SimpleCloud will be working together to provide consulting, implementation and support services to Canadian firms.
Nuxeo announced a new, low-code user interface (UI) for Nuxeo Insight, its artificial intelligence (AI) service that enables companies to use their own data and content to train custom machine learning (ML) models. The new interface allows business users to easily create, train, deploy and administer personalised machine learning models. The interface offers a guided point-and-click experience, and users can also deploy and administer these models in production use cases. Nuxeo’s new user experience walks users through the step-by-step process of training and deploying customer machine learning models:
- Select the various values and data types they want the new model to populate
- Apply different parameters for predictions
- Select the appropriate content and data for successful model training
- Perform any necessary renditions or transformations
Nuxeo Insight’s new UI includes a dashboard that provides real-time updates on the training process and outcomes. It also enables organisations to administer their custom ML models, allowing them to quickly promote new models into production and to actively monitor the performance of their models over time. With the new UI, users can compare the performance of different ML models or different versions of the same model. The overall goal is to provide an intuitive, easy-to-use environment that enables Nuxeo customers to continuously improve the performance of their ML models.
pCloud is giving users the opportunity to select location of their data. This will give users greater control over the security of their files. Once the choice of where to store the data is made during registration – in the US or Europe – it is practically impossible to transfer them without the user’s knowledge or permission. Currently, the option to select the server location is available only to newly registered users. The company is developing the option to change the storage location for existing users and it will be available very soon.
The company has recently added a data centre in Luxembourg, meeting the needs of consumers and businesses even in the most regulated sectors in terms of consumer data protection and information security. pCloud’s new European data center is certified to SSAE 16 SOC 2, Type II standard. In addition, pCloud meets standards such as ISO 9001: 2015 (Quality Management Systems) and ISO 27001: 2013 (Information Security Management Systems). When using the pCloud service, user data is transferred via TLS / SSL protocols, which provide data protection during transmission.
Informatica announced a collaborative technology initiative with The ADAPT Centre, a Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Research Centre for Digital Media Technology. The ADAPT Centre, funded by SFI, focuses on developing next-generation digital technologies that transform how people communicate by helping to analyze, personalize and deliver digital data more effectively. Informatica’s R&D team collaborate with ADAPT to leverage its applied research in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) to accelerate the application of AI and Machine Learning (ML) to automate Informatica’s enterprise cloud data management offerings. Organisations are increasingly leveraging extremely large data sets to inform business decisions but have a range of obligations under regulations like The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), making data management even more complex. Informatica’s engineers have already developed many AI and ML capabilities as part of the Informatica CLAIRE engine to help customers use data effectively for their analytics, data governance and privacy, and customer experience (CX) needs.
Obie announced the launch of its new browser extension to democratize access to Obie’s core search, access, and knowledge sharing functionality. They also launched Personal Pro and Personal Free plans that decouple Obie’s search functionality from Slack for the first time to expand availability for individuals and remote teams. Obie uses natural language processing (NLP) to understand complex queries, as well as machine learning (ML) to improve results with every document search. Users can also manually add “FAQs” to store templates, text snippets, and frequently accessed information by simply highlighting the information in their browser and adding it to Obie.
