GOODSMILE Logistics & Solutions Announces the Official Launch of "CharacterJAPAN!"

GOODSMILE Logistics & Solutions (GSLS) is launching “CharacterJAPAN,” a free online news service that gathers all the latest official information from Japanese animation studios, publishers, and other popular media industries all in one place for English speaking readers.

With more and more countries outside of Japan gaining access to Japanese animation, knowledge of Japanese popular media as well as the demand for more content are also on the rise. However, up until now there has been no way for fans overseas to quickly and effectively access official information directly from sources in Japan, as it is generally published in Japanese for domestic audiences, and spread across several platforms.

In order to fill this gap and allow fans all over the world quick and easy access to current, official information regarding anime, manga, figures, music, games, voice actors, events, and more, GSLS has created the special English online news service, “CharacterJAPAN.”

Visitors will have up to the minute access to all the latest news, including new titles, current releases, and upcoming projects and products, directly from content providers themselves - with over 70 different names in the industry participating, such as Bandai Visual, Gonzo, flying DOG, Nitroplus, Kaiyodo, Max Factory, Good Smile Company, COSPA, Newtype, KING RECORDS, and more. Articles will be released in English almost in tandem with their Japanese counterparts, leaving no information lagging or left out.

The top page of CharacterJAPAN lists the newest articles, but articles are also organized by specific content category. They can be filtered by content provider, and can also be organically searched to allow visitors to target the information that they’re looking for with ease. Not only will users have the opportunity to read up on all the latest news, they can also share articles with friends through a wide variety of social media platforms? such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, and Pinterest.

With the launch of CharacterJAPAN, GSLS hopes to help fans of Japanese media all over the world enjoy current and official information in English, as released directly from the source. For more information, please visit http://characterjapan.com or contact our liaison.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
