Behavioral Recognition Systems, Inc. (BRS Labs), reconhecida por sua plataforma AISight® com tecnologia de ponta , a solução de análise baseada em inteligência artificial que se auto-ensina a reconhecer e alertar sobre comportamento suspeito ou inesperado dentro de grandes volumes de dados, anunciou esta semana que já começou a busca por um novo diretor executivo para transformar a empresa em empresa de capital aberto.
No começo desta semana, o presidente da BRS Labs, Ray Davis anunciou que deixou o cargo de diretor executivo, a fim de dedicar seu tempo à direção estratégica da empresa e encontrar o candidato ideal para transformar a BRS Labs em empresa de capital aberto. A empresa pretende encontrar alguém em Houston que entenda o valor de uma empresa de capital aberto neste mercado, e que tenha experiência operacional prévia liderando uma empresa através do processo de abertura de capital.
"Eu fundei a BRS Labs e venho sendo seu diretor executivo desde 2005", disse Davis. "Eu sempre gostei de construir e dirigir empresas e venho fazendo isso há 35 anos. Com base no crescimento que experimentamos aqui na BRS Labs, agora é o momento certo para transformarmos a empresa em empresa de capital aberto e precisamos trazer um indivíduo que tenha experiência nessa área. Vou continuar a contribuir na minha função como presidente até que a pessoa esteja confortavelmente ambientada e posicionada para levar a BRS Labs ao alto nível que sabemos que é capaz de alcançar".
A BRS Labs tem uma parcela de aproximadamente 60% do mercado de análise de vídeo e, recentemente, fez uma expansão bem sucedida para a indústria de Controle de Supervisão e Aquisição de Dados (SCADA) para petróleo e gás, bem como outros Smart Utility Grids. Uma das razões pelas quais a companhia planeja abrir o capital é levantar fundos para continuar sua expansão agressiva em novos mercados verticais, incluindo Segurança da Informação (InfoSec), Sistemas de Gestão de Edifícios (BMS), e outras aplicações de big data.
"Nossa tecnologia baseada em Inteligência Artificial tem dominado o mercado onde a aplicamos inicialmente: Análise de vídeo,” continuou Davis. "Agora é o momento de aproveitar essa tecnologia comprovada e abordar as outras questões de segurança graves que o mundo enfrenta hoje. Nossa tecnologia baseada em inteligência artificial pode, simplesmente conectando-o a sistemas atuais e que lhe permitam observar, identificar as ameaças à nossa infraestrutura comercial e nacional, seja de redes de computadores, redes de serviços públicos inteligentes, energia, logística, infraestrutura e mais. Precisamos nos mover rápida e simultaneamente para esses novos mercados verticais para explorar as muitas maneiras em que a nossa tecnologia pode ser usada, enquanto expandimos nossa presença em mercados existentes. O acesso a fundos públicos nos posicionará para a penetração simultânea nesses mercados e nos permitirá expandir a empresa, produzindo retornos exponenciais para os nossos investidores."
A BRS Labs também está procurando um novo local para sua sede em Houston. Atualmente localizada na área de Uptown Houston, a empresa está buscando um edifício de estrutura única, uma vez que isso permitiria a BRS Labs abrigar sua própria instalação de armazenamento em nuvem no local. A empresa trabalha atualmente com fornecedores em nuvem externos, mas o crescimento exponencial esperado vai provavelmente exigir instalações de dados internas para atender à demanda crescente.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
