Securus Responds to GTL Briefing

Securus Technologies is a leading provider of communications and security products and services to the correctional facility and prison industries. The company has designed a number of different products that are used in thousands of locations across the United States, each of which are able to make prisons are more efficient and safer place to live, work, and visit. In total, they provide services to over 1,000 facilities, which account for over 100,000 prisoners across the country.


Due to the company’s success in providing these products and services, they are frequently considered an industry leader by their peers. In an attempt to keep up in competition, some of the peers in the industry will take legal steps to slow Securus’s progress. One company, GTL, recently sent out a news briefing that discussed their perspective of an ongoing legal battle between the two companies. Securus reviewed the briefing and had a number of different comments regarding the news briefing.


The first comment was related to GTL’s claim that the Patent Trial and Appeals Board decided to preserve all of GTL’s 55 cliams regarding its video visitation patents. Securus corrected the briefing saying that the Patent Trial and Appeals Board declined to even review the claims challenged. Furthermore, GTL claimed that the Patent Trial and Appeals Board stated that all of the technology used in the products was able to be patented, which Securus denies was even discussed.


GTL also provided comments in regards to the speed of the trial and case saying that they were just months away from a jury trial. Securus clarified that it is very unlikely that the case will ever be heard by a jury and if it is, they will be more than a year away from the commencement of a jury trial.

These networks can be programmed to sense the amount of light needed, the interplay between bulbs, and can also be manually controlled.

Additional features of smart lighting include, monitoring bulb status, scheduling, and some pretty neat special effects. The effects require the use of an app, but they are also quite easy to manage. (Check out IFTTT to get some cool ideas!)

Slyce Brings Visual Search Engine Technology to Major Retailers


Has image recognition technology advanced far enough to make the classic text search box obsolete? Practically everyone has a smartphone in their pocket, and the race is on to develop user-friendly applications that allow the masses to snap a picture and then use it to search. The possible applications from medical screening to improved auto safety features are endless. But the visual search Eldorado is to use image recognition technology to direct online sales to target companies. Slyce Inc. is at the forefront of this research.
How does image technology recognition software work? Just like in social media, images can be tagged with keyword descriptions. These annotations consist of attributes such as color, size or date. Since 2009 many major universities such as Stanford, Princeton, and UC Berkeley have been creating libraries of searchable images. Social media giants such as Google, Facebook and Pinterest have been collecting tagged images from users, creating giant catalogs of images with descriptions. The race is on to create applications capable of reliably searching these image databases.
One Canadian company is proving itself as the leader in visual search engine technology: Slyce Inc. Slyce provides a Universal Scanner application. Much like the classic barcode scanner used in retail, Slyce can scan barcodes and much more. Slyce allows regular smartphone users to scan a picture from a printed retail catalog, just like looking up a word in the table of contents. Slyce doesn’t stop there, the Universal Scanner can analyze real world pictures and propose products with similar characteristics such as color, style or pattern from a provided catalog.
This revolutionary capability replaces clumsy searches on retailers’ websites. Consumers no longer need to check and uncheck boxes or struggle with drop down menus. Slyce is already providing their services to big name retailers such as Home Depot, Neiman Marcus, and Nordstroms. Retailers that cater to younger consumers such as Tilly’s, American Eagle Outfitters, and Urban Outfitters are also clamoring to make their catalog of goods part of Slyce’s purchasing suggestions.
Slyce’s challenge is not with the reliability of its visual search. According to the Wall Street Journal article “Pinterest Takes a Shot at Camera-Search Technology” Slyce is capable of averaging a 92% accuracy rate of image matching from a picture taken on a smartphone with a provided catalog of images. The innovative company is ready for the masses of smartphone users to adopt this new form of image recognition technology as their new search reflex.

They are impressive and worth millions upon millions.

The cost of this project is going to be well over $600 million. In the Bronx, on the 2900 block of Park Avenue, a grand plan for a 154-unit residential complex is in motion. Omni New York is running the project. The finished result should be impressive.

George Soros Speaks Out

Money tends to make a lot of noise. Such is the case with investor George Soros. One of the world’s richest men thanks to his canny investments, Soros has again come out from the shadows. He has stepped up lately, according to an article on CNN, to speak out in this highly busy political season. While a native of Hungary, Soros has also taken an interest in many countries around the world. This includes the United Kingdom where he was an outspoken critic against Brexit or exiting from the European Union. It also includes the United States where he has chosen to make his voice heard and his viewpoints known. As those in America start to head towards the conclusion of an election cycle on Investopedia, he is right there with them both as a participant in the election as someone who has chosen to donate a lot of money to one party.

Donating Funds

Soros is someone who has amassed a large fortune. His money was made by correctly predicting the fall of the British pound in the mid-1990’s. By betting against it, he was able to see his own stock rise. In the aftermath of his decision to bet against the pound, George Soros has continued to see his own stock rise in the United States and Europe. His latest foray has been one into the world of politics where he is a much sought after speaker and pundit. Many people find it useful to listen to his thoughts on the matter. Perhaps less surprisingly, many of those running for office also find it helpful to get funding from him. This is very much the case with one of the major parties in the United States. The Democrats have turned to him for help in this particular election cycle.

Helping The Dems

In particular, George Soros has been a major supporting of Democratic party nominee Hillary Clinton. He has donated over twenty-five million dollars to her campaign alone, making him one of the largest of all donors to her campaign and one of the largest donors to any party in the entire United States. While Soros watches from Europe, he also keeps a close eye on conditions in the United States. Certain issues in this presidential campaign are issues that he feels strongly about and wishes to see implemented. Soros is of the opinion that Donald Trump, the nominee of the Republican party, is someone who will not be a good fit for the needs of the United States and the good of the entire world. Soros has decided that it makes sense for him to speak out against Trump’s candidacy and in favor of electing Democrat Hillary Clinton to office instead.
