Humaniq releases brand new version of popular App


London, England, March 8, 2018 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - London-based FinTech firm Humaniq is marking the milestone of its app reaching its first 50,000 downloads by announcing a new, improved version.

Humaniq announced a Free Secure Chat & Crypto-Wallet App and a new referral program for its community of users. The Humaniq app includes a wallet, bioID, secure messenger and the unbanked can use it for making digital ID and peer-to-peer transactions in African countries (including Uganda, Senegal, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, and Rwanda).

The new features include:

New referral program
With Humaniq's  egalitarian emission approach, a large proportion of the HMQ crypto coin is reserved for active app users. A referral program has showed a very positive adoption curve from users, with more than 10,000 users together inviting more than 75,000 thousand friends in total to join the application. Humaniq's new 2.0 referral program  will build on this by displaying community progress with referrals and thereby make the  referral process more transparent and intuitive for all users.

Transaction options extension
Transactions can now be made via the messenging chat system. The principle the Humaniq app is grounded in- is that everything should revolve around humans coming together to build community. That is why an ability to communicate is crucial. The Humaniq team have introduced transactions into personal chats to focus on the communication between people. Whether it is a text, or an image or a gift in HMQ – it is now all in one place.

In addition,  users  are now allowed not only to send HMQ, but also to request directly from their friends or family. The Humaniq team believes that an ability to request a desired amount is a more efficient and faster way to communicate financially. This feature is available for all users that have access to the wallet, and is also secured by our enhanced anti-fraud system. Users can also enjoy  a new way of grouping transactions as  a smarter way to organise personal communication. From now on, users will be able to clearly focus either on the financial history or on the correspondence with a specified friend  by staying in the unified chat room. While text and media messages will be group based on the timing, financial transactions will be grouped by type and action type.

New on-boarding process
The Humaniq team redesigned the on-boarding process to make it clearer and easier for inexperienced smartphone users. The close collaboration with Humaniq's ambassadors in African nations led to the  creation of an on-boarding process that adapts to the needs of customers, whereas the purpose remains the same: to explain what features are available, how to use them and how to benefit from their use.

New registration process
A new registration process allows users to start interacting with a Humaniq assistant bot, which becomes  smarter and is learning to execute more useful commands, even without the registration. Unlike conventional applications where a user has to specify required personal credentials in order to get access to a given  functionality, the Humaniq team would like to let users choose what functionality is needed, and how to access it.

Optional passcode and new security standards
Humaniq App security standards have also been reconsidered and will allow users to opt-out from a required passcode. There is, therefore, also an AI powered system to decide when an additional biometric verification is required to eliminate the risk of  of unauthorised transactions.

"The Humaniq's team of ambassadors in Africa received and analysed feedback from users, and with this data it was possible to create such  significant updates. We hope our users will appreciate all the innovations and we will move even further towards our goal to empower the unbanked" – said Anton Mozgovoy, CTO Humaniq.

The Humaniq team has also made additional upgrades to remote infrastructure and with new CDN points, users in Africa will experience a faster by 16% response rate from mobile application which is already available in Google Play and can be used even on low-end mobile devices with Android 4.0.3.

Humaniq发布大众APP全新版本




英格兰伦敦 2018年03月08日 /ChinaNewswire.com/ 2018年2月28日,伦敦-总部在伦敦的金融科技公司Humaniq正推出一个新的改进版本,以纪念其App应用程序下载量首次突破5万这一里程碑事件。

Humaniq宣布推出一款免费安全聊天及密码钱包APP,并为其用户群提供一个新转介计划。Humaniq App内含钱包、生物识别码和安全使者。无银行账户用户可以用Humaniq App在非洲国家(包括乌干达、塞内加尔、津巴布韦、坦桑尼亚和卢旺达)制作数字身份、进行对等交易。

新功能包括:

新转介计划
用Humaniq平等释放法将大量的HMQ加密代币留给活跃App用户。转介计划显示出一条正向用户采用曲线,超过1万用户共同邀请了超过7500万名朋友加入该应用程序。通过转介显示社群进步,在此基础上打造了新2.0转介计划,从而使转介流程对用户来说更加透明、更加直观。

交易选项扩展
现在可以通过短信聊天系统进行交易。Humaniq App的基本原理是: 一切事物都应围绕着"人类聚集起来、建立一个社区",这也是为什么沟通能力至关重要的原因。Humaniq团队将交易引入到个人聊天,关注人与人之间的通信。无论是在HMQ中的文字,图像还是礼物,现在都集中在一个地方。

此外,用户现在不仅可发送HMQ,而且可以直接从他们的朋友或家人处获取。Humaniq团队认为能提出所需金额是一种更有效、更快的金融通信方式。此功能可供所有可访问该钱包的用户使用,而且我们的增强防欺诈系统也保证了使用安全。用户还可用一种新的方式将交易进行分组,以一种更智能的方式组织个人通信。从现在起,用户将能够明确地集中于金融记录,或呆在在统一聊天室与指定朋友通信。虽然文本和媒体消息将按时机进行分组,但金融交易将按类型和操作类型分组。

新入门流程
Humaniq团队重新设计了入门流程。该流程对于缺乏经验的智能手机用户来说更加清楚简便。通过与Humaniq驻非洲国家代表们的密切合作,开发了一个适应客户需求的入门流程,但其目标保持不变,仍然是解释哪些功能可用、如何使用这些功能、以及如何从使用这些功能中受益。

新注册流程
新注册流程使用户开始与Humaniq助理机器人进行互动。即便不注册,助理机器人也更加智能,而且助理机器人正在学习如何执行更有用的命令。与传统应用程序不同的是,用户必须明确所需的个人凭据,才能访问给定功能,Humaniq团队希望让用户选择其所需功能和访问方式。

可选密码和新安全标准
已重新考虑了Humaniq App的安全标准,允许用户自愿退出必需的密码。因此,,还有一个人工智能供电系统来决定何时需要进行额外的生物特征识别验证,以消除未经授权交易的风险。

Humaniq首席技术官Anton Mozgovoy表示:"Humaniq非洲代表小组收到并分析了用户反馈意见,用该数据可能实现如此重要的更新。我们希望我们的用户欣赏所有的创新,我们将朝着我们的目标"赋能无银行账户"迈进。

Humaniq团队还对远程基础设施和新的内容分发网络(CDN)节点进行了额外升级。非洲用户的移动应用程序的响应速度将提高16%,而Google Play已经提供该应用程序,甚至可以用于搭载Android 4.0.3系统的低端移动设备。

CA Technologies Named One of the 2018 World’s Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute for the Third Year in a Row




Hong Kong, China, February 22, 2018 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - HONG KONG, 22 February, 2018 – CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that it has been recognized as a 2018 World’s Most Ethical Companies#174; for the third year in a row by the Ethisphere Institute, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.

CA Technologies is one of only 3 winners in the Software and Services category, underscoring the company’s commitment to leading with integrity and prioritizing ethical business practices.

“Success in today’s rapidly evolving economy is contingent on so much more than business acumen. How an organization is run, the diversity of the team, and the driving mission directly impact both the bottom line and sustained success,” states Mike Gregoire, chief executive officer at CA Technologies. “CA is adamant in maintaining the highest ethical standards in all we do – both internally and externally. The recognition for three years running by the Ethisphere Institute is the best validation of our efforts and our commitment. Our ethical principles inform everything we do and it is deeply satisfying for that work to be recognized.”

Twenty-eighteen is the twelfth year that Ethisphere has honored those companies who recognize their role in society to influence and drive positive change, consider the impact of their actions on their employees, investors, customers and other key stakeholders and use their values and culture as an underpinning to the decisions they make every day.

“While the discourse around the world changed profoundly in 2017, a stronger voice emerged. Global corporations operating with a common rule of law are now society’s strongest force to improve the human condition. This year we saw companies increasingly finding their voice. The World’s Most Ethical Companies in particular continued to show exemplary leadership,” explained Ethisphere’s CEO, Timothy Erblich. "I congratulate everyone at CA Technologies for being recognized as one of the World's Most Ethical Companies."

Ethics Performance
Once again, the 2018 World’s Most Ethical Companies have proven that operating with integrity leads to greater financial performance. Research has found that, when indexed, listed World’s Most Ethical Companies outperformed the U.S. Large Cap Index over five years by 10.72 percent and over three years by 4.88 percent. Ethisphere refers to this as the Ethics Premium.

Methodology Scoring
The World's Most Ethical Companies assessment is based upon the Ethisphere Institute’s Ethics Quotient#174; (EQ) framework, which offers a quantitative way to assess a company’s performance in an objective, consistent and standardized manner. The information collected provides a comprehensive sampling of definitive criteria of core competencies rather than all aspects of corporate governance, risk, sustainability, compliance and ethics.

Scores are generated in five key categories: ethics and compliance program (35 percent), corporate citizenship and responsibility (20 percent), culture of ethics (20 percent), governance (15 percent) and leadership, innovation and reputation (10 percent). All companies that participate in the assessment process receive their scores, providing them with valuable insights into how they stack up against leading organizations.

TÜV Rheinland Releases Wide-Ranging Study on Global Consumer Perception of Autonomous Vehicle Safety




Hong Kong, China, February 22, 2018 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - Chinese motorists nearly twice as trusting of autonomous car technology as the United States and Germany; all expect improvement in road safety, yet want to be able to intervene at any time

T#220;V Rheinland, a leading international testing service provider for quality and safety, today announced results from a global survey designed to assess consumer perception of safety of autonomous vehicles in different regions. The survey, conducted among more than 1,000 licensed drivers aged 18 years and above each in China, Germany, and the United States, reveals that trust in technology of completely autonomous cars is nearly twice as high in China as the other two countries. More than 63 percent of respondents in China believe driverless cars will increase road safety, while the figure is 34 percent in the United States and Germany.

Respondents were equal in the degree of importance placed on data protection and desire for assurances that autonomous vehicles will be protected against cyberattacks. Drivers the world over also wish to be able to decide for themselves when to let a car drive autonomously, and when to control it themselves.

Respondents convinced that automated driving increases overall road safety

While respondents generally agree that automation of driving will improve road safety, again we see a higher proportion of respondents believe this in China than in Germany and the USA. Interestingly, however, people’s doubts tend to increase and trust in the technology decreases as vehicles’ level of automation goes up. Only 11 percent of the respondents in Germany and 15 percent in the USA state they fear ‘a deterioration of road safety’ due to partial automation, while nearly half of those same respondents believe that road safety will deteriorate with the advent of completely driverless cars. In China, only 24 percent expect road safety to decrease in the case of driverless cars.

“When we see large swaths of motorists in China, Germany, and the USA share a belief that road safety will decrease as automation increases, it tells us we must give people much more information and communicate the benefits of autonomous technology more clearly,” said Dr. Matthias Schubert, executive vice president of mobility at T#220;V Rheinland.

The results of the international study echo the same trends shown in a similar T#220;V Rheinland survey from Spring, 2017 on the acceptance of autonomous driving in Germany. This study revealed that 75 percent of respondents generally view autonomous vehicle technology positively but, when looked at in detail, there are still many reservations about the technical implementation.

In the current study, 78 percent of all global respondents agree that it must be possible for a person to take full control of the vehicle at any time in the event of an emergency – this opinion is stronger in Germany and the USA than in China.

Cyberprotection leading indicator of trust in technology

Fear of cybercrime around autonomous vehicles is widespread among global motorists – especially in Germany. A full 76 percent of respondents in Germany believe that personal data can fall into unauthorized hands when using autonomous vehicles. The United States and China stand at 67 percent and 63 percent, respectively. In all three countries, respondents fear to an equal extent that autonomous cars could lead to increased vehicle crime due to people accessing the vehicles via technical means and data theft. This opinion was somewhat more prevalent in the USA, with 52 percent of respondents in agreement.

A majority of respondents think the systems of future cars should be updated regularly and automatically to ensure road safety and protection against cyberattacks. In China, 80 percent of respondents support “over-the-air updates;” the figure is 68 percent in the United States, and 64 percent in Germany.

Notably, in all three countries cyberprotection is so important that the majority of respondents (Germany 66 percent, USA 61 percent, China 60 percent) would change to a different make of car if hacker attacks were to come to light. On this topic, consumers in China are more likely to trust the competence of the manufacturers to develop autonomous vehicles that are protected against unauthorized access (71 percent). In Germany, the sentiment tends to be positive (55 percent), an opinion that has risen significantly compared to the survey from Spring, 2017. At that time, only 47 percent of German respondents held this faith. Americans show the least confidence in automobile manufacturers to build autonomous vehicles that are protected against cybercrime, at just 41 percent.

Data collection just as necessary as data protection
Most motorists today are aware that data in modern vehicles is recorded and transmitted to automobile manufacturers. This includes data on the state of the vehicle (e.g., mileage, error messages) as well as vehicle movement data (e.g., speed, position) or person-specific data, such as style of driving or seat adjustment settings. Just how well-informed do people believe they are on this matter? Very large differences show up here across the three countries: 55 percent of respondents in the United States say that they are rather poorly informed about which data is used for which purpose, who has access to the data, and how well-protected the data is. This is also the case for 52 percent of respondents in Germany. In China, however, only 15 percent of respondents believe they are poorly informed.

For all respondents, safety is a primary motivation for sharing data. Between 30 percent and 50 percent of motorists in all three countries state a specific desire to make their data available for breakdown assistance services, car insurance companies, testing organizations, automobile manufacturers, and state institutions. However, motorists are less willing to transmit their data to service and mobility providers, particular data app providers, automotive suppliers, automobile dealers, and infrastructure operators such as gas stations.

Finally, 71 percent of the Chinese respondents demonstrate a greater inclination (Germany 45 percent, USA 42 percent) to pass on their data for updating and using new services (e.g., for telematics services such as parking space finders).

Politicians and industry executives need to do their homework

The survey brings to light motorist perceptions that may impair the acceptance of autonomous vehicles and pose significant barriers to widespread adoption. To eliminate these kinds of obstacles, politicians and industry executives, in particular, need to do their homework. In Germany, more than half (53 percent) of survey participants believe it is most important for the driver to always be able to take full control of the vehicle. Furthermore, 49 percent feel the need for legal situations to be clarified further (e.g., questions of liability), and 37 percent want data protection to be ensured through a corresponding framework. For respondents in the United States, having a permanent option for the driver to take full control of the vehicle is also the top priority (47 percent). Proof of functional safety through tests comes a close second (45 percent). Following in third place is the protection of the car against unauthorized access (43 percent). For Chinese respondents, backup of personal data is the most important (43 percent), even more so than ensuring data protection (40 percent) and protection of the vehicle against unauthorized access (36 percent).

The survey on the safety of autonomous vehicles by T#220;V Rheinland in the context of autonomous driving was conducted in September 2017 via an online panel. For the study, T#220;V Rheinland polled a representative sample of around 1,000 each from China, Germany, and the Unites States aged 18 years and over and in possession of a driver’s license. It is the second study of this kind by T#220;V Rheinland; in Spring 2017, the company carried out a study on the acceptance of autonomous vehicles in Germany.

UWB/Bluetooth Low Energy module supports out-of-the-box advanced real time location applications potentially employing thousands of tags




Hong Kong, China, February 22, 2018 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - Decawave UWB technology combines with Nordic’s nRF52832 Bluetooth LE solution to support prototyping, testing, and implementation of accurate, reliable Real Time Location Systems without the need for extensive RF expertise

Nordic Semiconductor today announces that Decawave, a Dublin, Ireland-based fabless semiconductor company, has selected Nordic’s award-winning Bluetooth#174; Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) nRF52832 System-on-Chip (SoC) for its DWM1001 module. The module forms the foundation of scalable Two-Way-Ranging (TWR) Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) potentially comprising thousands of tags.

The DWM1001 module combines Decawave’s DW1000 Ultra Wide Band (UWB) transceiver, the nRF52832 SoC, a three-axis accelerometer, a UWB Channel 5 printed PCB antenna (6.5 GHz), and a Bluetooth LE chip antenna.

The module is accompanied by Decawave’s DWM1001-Dev development board and MDEK1001 evaluation kit which enables users with limited RF design experience to program and evaluate the DWM1001 module. Development is further simplified because Nordic’s unique software architecture cleanly separates the RF software protocol stack from the developer’s application code eliminating the possibliity of code development and compilation corrupting the stack, and accelerating time-to-market.

The DWM1001 module is based on Decawave’s DW1000 single-chip, IEEE802.15.4-2011 UWB-compliant transceiver. The technology is immune to multipath fading which is key to guaranteeing high reliability—within 2cm precision—in indoor environments. The 6.8Mbps data rate capability reduces the air time, enabling the real-time location of thousands of tags, as well as low power consumption for battery-operated devices.

In the module, the nRF52832 SoC provides Bluetooth LE connectivity to Bluetooth 4.0 (and later) smartphones and tablets allowing end customers to configure, control, and monitor RTLS applications. The nRF52832 SoC’s powerful 64MHz, 32-bit ARM#174; Cortex#174; M4F processor not only runs Nordic’s S132 SoftDevice (a Bluetooth 5-certifed RF software protocol stack) but also the module’s RTLS firmware and supervisory functions. The SoC’s 512 kB Flash memory application and powerful microprocessor support customer location- and sensor-fusion algorithms, and Over-the-Air Device Firmware Updates (OTA-DFU). The S132 SoftDevice also offers mesh capability, enabling scalable networking.

The DWM1001 module is a cost-efficient development platform targeted at low-to-mid volume industrial, healthcare, retail, and consumer applications. For example, the technology could be used to avoid collisions between people and robots in a factory, or for advanced analytics or navigation services to locate medical equipment in a hospital; tools and spare parts in a warehouse; or shopping carts at a retail center.

Nordic’s nRF52832 Bluetooth LE SoC, a member of Nordic’s sixth generation of ultra low power (ULP) wireless connectivity solutions, combines an ARM microprocessor with a 2.4GHz multiprotocol radio (supporting Bluetooth 5, ANT#8482;, and proprietary 2.4GHz RF software) featuring -96dB RX sensitivity, with 512kB Flash memory and 64kB RAM. When launched, the SoC was the world’s highest performance single-chip Bluetooth LE solution.

The SoC is supplied with Nordic’s S132 SoftDevice which supports Central, Peripheral, Broadcaster and Observer Bluetooth LE roles, supports up to twenty connections, and enables concurrent role operation.

“The key factors in our decision to choose the nRF52832 SoC were its competitive feature/price ratio, ultra low power consumption to support customers’ low duty cycle applications, the maturity of the RF software stack, and the clean separation between the SoftDevice and customer application code,” says Mickael Viot, Vice President of Marketing at Decawave.

“Nordic’s online community and support is also very important to SME customers specializing in our target applications.”

加利福尼亚州圣何塞市 2018年02月12日 /ChinaNewswire.com/ VIAVI Solutions 公司(纳斯达克股票代码:VIAV)今天宣布与中国移动通信集团公司合作(CMCC),以便2019年底前在中国引入5G服务。VIAVI作为中国移动的首选供应商,一如既往地提供先进的解决方案以支撑其具体技术需求及领先的路线图。VIAVI将为中国移动及相关的设备制造商提供测试和测量硬件及软件,来支持其SPN-FlexE的开发,该技术已为5G x-hual的主要承载技术。

基于对5G传输承载网络需求的广泛分析,中国移动已经确定,切片分组网络(SPN)是最佳的技术,用其来支撑下一代网络架构,带宽,流量模式,切片,延迟及时间同步。弹性以太网或FlexE与SPN绑定使用灵活实现从一个较大的物理链路创建成较小的物理通道,或反之亦然,以保证服务质量(QoS)及在传输层间切片的隔离。中国移动已需求ITU组织的SPN-FlexE的标准化。Viavi 通过提供SPN-FlexE测试平台致力于支持中国移动,同时为网络设备制造商、芯片开发商和模块供应商建立一个共同行业测试基准,以便更好地验证基于这种技术的产品。

2018年1月,中国移动研究院(CMRI) 副院长杨志强女士欢迎VIAVI Solutions 总裁兼首席执行官Oleg Khaykin,副总裁兼实验室和生产业务部总经理 Tom Fawcett,到她的办公室参加5G计划与合作的战略会议。CMRI是中国移动集团内部的技术组织,负责新技术的研究、标准化和相关设备的验证包括协议测试。

"VIAVI很荣幸的能与中国移动合作,分析5G网络场景并提出技术战略,"Khaykin说。"为了实现2019年底前推出5G服务的愿景,主要技术包括用于X-hual承载网的SPN-FlexE,必须由国际电联进行标准化。我们正在持续不断地开发新的测试技术,来实现这一目标。而我们的解决方案已准备好,为支持中国移动合作伙伴生态系统提供可靠的网络基础构架。
