BRS Labs procura novo diretor executivo para liderar a empresa através do processo de abertura do capital

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.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
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 ...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Collecting data in the field and configuring multitudes of unique devices is a time-consuming, labor-intensive process that can stretch IT resources. Horan & Bird [H&B], Australia’s fifth-largest Solar Panel Installer, wanted to automate sensor data collection and monitoring from its solar panels and integrate the data with its business and marketing systems. After data was collected and structured, two major areas needed to be addressed: improving developer workflows and extending access to a business application to multiple users (multi-tenancy). Docker, a container technology, was used to ...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
2015 predictions circa 1970: houses anticipate our needs and adapt, city infrastructure is citizen and situation aware, office buildings identify and preprocess you. Today smart buildings have no such collective conscience, no shared set of fundamental services to identify, predict and synchronize around us. LiveSpace and M2Mi are changing that. LiveSpace Smart Environment devices deliver over the M2Mi IoT Platform real time presence, awareness and intent analytics as a service to local connected devices. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Sarah Cooper, VP Business of Development at M2Mi, will d...
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In this session, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems, will describe how to revolutionize your architecture and...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
We’re entering a new era of computing technology that many are calling the Internet of Things (IoT). Machine to machine, machine to infrastructure, machine to environment, the Internet of Everything, the Internet of Intelligent Things, intelligent systems – call it what you want, but it’s happening, and its potential is huge. IoT is comprised of smart machines interacting and communicating with other machines, objects, environments and infrastructures. As a result, huge volumes of data are being generated, and that data is being processed into useful actions that can “command and control” thi...
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo, June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be
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...
SYS-CON Events announced today that MetraTech, now part of Ericsson, has been named “Silver Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 16th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on June 9–11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York, NY.

Thanks to widespread Internet adoption and more than 10 billion connected devices around the world, companies became more excited than ever about the Internet of Things in 2014. Add in the hype around Google Glass and the Nest Thermostat, and nearly every business, including those from traditionally low-tech industries, wanted in. But despite the buzz, some very real business questions emerged – mainly, not if a device can be connected, or even when, but why? Why does connecting to the cloud create greater value for the user? Why do connected features improve the overall experience? And why do...
