Press Releases

BitForex’s CEO Garret Jin and Korean Prime Minister Attend K.E.Y. Platform

SINGAPORE, May 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — What is likely the biggest cryptocurrency event worldwide, Consensus 2019, has just concluded. The exhibition included several keynotes from high profile speakers, breakout sessions, and thousands of noteworthy guests, including BitForex’s head of Business Development, Jason Luo. Main topics for discussion at the event included Cryptocurrency regulations, blockchain for the public sector, sanctions, and much more. Several networking events were scheduled, allowing industry professionals to make new connections, and share ideas & opportunities.

Although Consensus may be the largest event of its kind, there are other contrasting conferences in which cryptocurrency has a place. Benefiting from a more diverse audience of professionals, K.E.Y Platform in South Korea sees hundreds of attendants from both economic and political sectors come together to discuss “New Markets” — including future development trends, artificial intelligence, trade wars, Brexit, as well as blockchain. An excellent opportunity to help bring cryptocurrency and the surrounding movement into mainstream acceptance.

As the only representative of the Blockchain industry present in what remains one of the most important and sizeable cryptocurrency markets of the world, BitForex CEO Garrett Jin took to the stage to share his thoughts, visions, and future predictions for the development of the cryptocurrency industry, and the role of crypto exchanges in modern finance both in South Korea and beyond.

His panel was dedicated to the role of cryptocurrency exchanges, not just as a place to exchange tokens, but as a full-scale solution for digital currency deployment, and how this could play a pivotal role in the near future when considered as a new market for South Korea. Also present at this event was Lee Nak-yeon, current Prime Minister of South Korea, emphasizing the degree of seriousness with which the conference was held.

It is through events such as these that cryptocurrency gains both mainstream acceptance and momentum — by raising awareness in high-level professional environments, as well as on the consumer level and with the all-important userbase.

Following the event, BitForex has expanded its operations team in Korea, as the cryptocurrency market there is among the 5 biggest globally. Registered users from Korea on BitForex currently approaches one million, and the exchange aims to double that number in 2019 as it continues growing its already significant Korean presence. This will allow BitForex to continue bringing unparalleled service to its Korean users, and in neighboring regions — bringing cryptocurrency further into the mainstream market.

Recasting Traditional TV’s Role in the Age of Online and Mobile Entertainment

SINGAPORE, May 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — From the live black-and-white broadcast of Neil Armstrong’s first step on the Moon to the World Cup Final in ultra-high definition, television has stood the test of time often co-opting inventions that threatened disruption such as VHS, cable networks and the Internet.

Ed Barton, Chief Analyst -- TV and Entertainment, Ovum

Yet despite its enduring dominance television’s viability is at a critical juncture due to the rise of Over-the-Top (OTT) video platforms, which stream content directly to audiences via the public Internet.

Last year, OTT streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime overtook pay TV subscriptions in the U.K. for the first time[1], with average daily broadcast TV viewership continuing its decline, down 38 minutes since 2012. Additionally, OTT’s unabated growth saw its revenue total $13 billion in 2018 in APAC and is projected to more than double to $32 billion by 2024, increasing $4 billion in 2019 alone[2].

In the present era where audience expectations continue to evolve, traditional television as we know it faces severe challenges unless it reinvents itself…once again.

A crowded marketplace

While the television has grown to become a mainstay in most households around the world, its reign in the living room is being challenged by the evolution of content, business models, networks and devices that are forcing traditional television players to reexamine their role in the modern household.

One key trend is the ubiquity of high-speed internet, as well as the rise of OTT and mobile video platforms which are fundamentally changing the way people watch. This has had profound impacts on audience viewing and spending habits.

Compared to the traditional pay TV model that offers a bundle of channels at a relatively high price for long commitment periods, online and mobile audiences enjoy the freedom to pick and choose from a variety of services often at low-to-no cost with availability across multiple devices.

While television broadcasters have been quick to adopt OTT and other video-on-demand (VOD) models, many have struggled to compete effectively against the native digital video platforms. The most successful broadcasters are using online and mobile television to amplify their traditional offerings and to cater to the evolving demands of audiences and advertisers. For example, by offering previous seasons of a series online in the lead up to the start of the new season on broadcast TV, while offering targeted, cross-platform advertising campaigns across broadcast, OTT, and mobile for a single buy.

Remaining competitive in today’s landscape demands more than just the newest technologies or the best content, but a strategy that addresses the varying demands of audiences around the World and across all age demographics.

Television’s new era

New technologies such as 5G mobile networks and artificial intelligence (AI) are also offering possibilities for traditional television’s revival. With exceptional bandwidth and low latency, 5G enables innovation of video in multiple areas. Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) elevate the viewing experience to provide more immersive viewing offering audiences a greater degree of control over the entire experience.

For broadcasters, AI can help automate existing workflows driving down operating expenses while enabling innovation and efficiencies in audience insight, content recommendation and predictive analytics. Though still in its infancy, we are already seeing it at work with content recommendations, ad targeting, automatic captioning and subtitling, scheduling and even AI newscasters.

While these evolving technologies provide interesting possibilities for traditional television, it is crucial that broadcasters themselves augment their offerings by ensuring the quality of the viewing experience is maintained across online and mobile devices, focusing on the content which is critical to their audiences, and working with partners to address gaps in the content and service proposition.

With Disney+, Disney’s direct-to-consumer streaming service, set to enter the market later this year traditional television players will need to consider their competitive positioning. Picking your battles and leveraging deep understanding of the viewing needs and habits of local audiences will be critical to surviving in an increasingly competitive OTT landscape, which we expect will drive the consolidation, or exit, of smaller players.

Amidst these new technologies, industry changes and evolution of audience tastes, television at its core must retain focus on the critical factor: making shows which people want to watch. The allure of good content – whether premium dramas, live sports, relevant local news — will always be the principle driver for audiences. Traditional television players have survived many threats in the past by maintaining this focus and co-opting the best of the technology innovations, and it must evolve and adapt once more in response to perhaps the most robust set of challenges it has ever faced.

For more on how television broadcasters, Pay-TV and OTT players can navigate a digital-first age, and what future audiences will be like, I’ll be sharing further in my opening address ‘The Evolution of TV, Media and Entertainment’ at ConnecTechAsia2019 Summit, Day 2, 19 June at Suntec Singapore. Additionally, join me and fellow panelists in the panel titled ‘Digital-First Dialogue: Reinventing Television’s Ambition for the Modern Age’ on the same day at 11.30am, Suntec Singapore.

73% of People Don’t Trust AI Voice Technology Such as Google Duplex to Make Simple Calls, Though Trust May Build as Usage Increases

WASHINGTON, May 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Nearly three-quarters of people (73%) say they are somewhat or very unlikely to trust a tool such as Google Duplex to correctly make simple calls for them. Duplex is a tool within Google Assistant that can call restaurants and book reservations using an AI-powered voice. Duplex caused controversy when it was unveiled in spring 2018 due to its lifelike realism.

This data comes from Clutch, the leading B2B ratings and reviews firm, and Ciklum, a global digital solutions company. Clutch and Ciklum surveyed 501 people who called businesses at least three times in the past six months to understand their comfort level with conversational AI tools.

Experts mentioned that people often feel hesitant toward new technologies that later become accepted, such as ATMs or self-checkout lines.

“To varying degrees, we’re all vulnerable to different forms of this anxiety when it comes to adjusting to new ideas or technological advances,” said Ivan Kotiuchyi, research engineer at Ciklum.

AI voice technology presents new obstacles for winning consumer confidence due to its lack of monitoring, though.

“On the computer, you have a user interface,” said Daniel Shapiro, chief technology officer and co-founder of Lemay.ai, an enterprise AI consulting firm. “… You can see what it’s doing. Over the phone, you really have no idea what it’s capable of doing. You have to just believe.”

Yet, experts say that as a tool like Duplex becomes more commonplace and demonstrates its success, people will grow to trust it.

Conversational AI Opens New Security Risks

More than 8 in 10 people (81%) want AI voice technology such as Duplex to declare itself as a robot before proceeding with a call.

This desire for identification shows that people may be wary of the ways in which AI voices can be used for manipulation.

Criminals could use conversational AI to automate increasingly realistic scam calls.

“Imagine a call that comes from your boss,” WatchGuard Technologies Chief Technology Officer Corey Nachreiner said in GeekWire. “It sounds like your boss, talks with his or her cadence but is actually an AI assistant using a voice imitation algorithm. Such a call offers limitless malicious potential to bad actors.”

Overall, the survey indicates that people are presently uncomfortable with conversational AI but will likely embrace it as it grows in popularity. People should be cautious of scams that exploit the technology behind Google Duplex for malicious purposes, though.

With its EBIDTA growing more than 300% over the past year, and recurring licenses now representing 72% of revenue, Expert System confirmed the solid positioning of its Artificial Intelligence platform, Cogito®, in the intelligent process automation and knowledge discovery markets. Now, with strong commitments to Publishing & Media and Intelligence & Law Enforcement, and a growing focus on Insurance and Banking, Expert System is positioning itself for further growth by strengthening its sales & marketing operations, and consolidating strategic alliances with Robotic Process Automation players and other AI-related platforms.

“Momentum in the Artificial Intelligence market may help companies gain market share, but success depends on proven experience, skills, product quality and fit,” said Stefano Spaggiari, CEO of Expert System Group. “Further improvements to the Cogito Artificial Intelligence platform and the consolidation of our positioning in the market are our priorities to support future plans and expansion in the US. We are honored to have new shareholders that can help us speed up our growth.”

The Expert System capital increase was subscribed by a newco (ERGO) controlled by a pool of private investors including: Claudio Costamagna, who spent more than 18 years at Goldman Sachs before becoming the chairman of Cassa Depositio e Prestiti, the Italian National Promotional Institution; Francesco Caio, former CEO of Poste Italiane, the largest infrastructure in Italy active in the areas of postal services and logistics as well as in financial and insurance services, and currently chairman of Saipem, a leading company in engineering, drilling and construction of major projects in the energy and infrastructure sectors; Diego Piacentini, who, after 13 years at Apple, joined Amazon’s senior executive team, reporting directly to Jeff Bezos, and led the company’s International business for 16 years.
