OrangeHealth Seeking Investors for Mobile App Peer-to-Peer Platform for Managing Diabetes, Other Health Conditions

SAN FRANCISCO, June 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Madhuri Trivedi, an engineer, scientist, entrepreneur and immigrant, has launched her new company OrangeHealth and is currently seeking investors for its product. Trivedi is seeking seed funding in the range of $200k to $350k to further launch the app in various geographical areas, add more features, and launch a peer-to-peer platform app for sharing information. The new app will provide peer-to-peer crowd sourced community support with deep learning artificial intelligence (AI) to better manage diabetes.

She also has created and launched a new mobile health improvement app that is already used by more than 6,000 people to manage allergies, find a doctor, is used for predictive analytics for eating habits, and reminders at the time of eating.

“Prevention is key for managing illness like diabetes, but it’s just as important that people can gain the information and support,” says Trivedi.

“Right now, because of some challenges in my immigration status, while I have the technical support to build the app, I need funding to help with its launch because I am unable to work. The only way to get this app off the ground is through investors willing to support this important work,” adds Trivedi.

She wrote heavily about precision medicine in April 2104, received a job offer in 2014 with Harvard Medical to create a cancer vaccine, artificial protein. President Obama in the 2015 State of Union Address, launched precision medicine initiative. Trivedi has been unable to take the Harvard position because of immigration denials and challenges. While at General Electric, Trivedi’s labor certificate for immigration was approved as “a person of exceptional ability” EB2 category. GE, however, didn’t file the next step so she could work in the U.S. 

After leaving GE, with the Harvard medical job offer and her entrepreneurial start-up, Trivedi filed for immigration under “a person of extra-ordinary ability” EB1 category, which DHS denied. Trivedi has a number of letters of support from professionals associated with her scientific and technical work .

Trivedi has a long career as an expert in her field. While at Raindance, Trivedi developed the world’s first digital-equivalent to personal computer instrument for genome sequencing used for drug discovery in 2009. Here she was part of a 20 people start up that went on to generate hundreds of millions for revenue. Dr. Jonathan Rothberg, founder of the startup, was awarded National Medal of Technology and Innovation by President Obama and made $700 million selling the sister company to Life Technology. Trivedi did not make any money from the sale of the company.

She has made major significant contributions in extraordinary ability and national interest while working at Fortune 10/50 corporations, successful entrepreneurial startups. Only individuals with both exceptional technical ability as well as persistence and commitment can deliver what Trivedi has in a high-risk environment with do or die start up success.

The GeekPwn 2017 Carnival Offers Prize of 5 Million RMB with new AI Security Session

SHANGHAI, June 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Global security experts are invited to participate the GeekPwn 2017 Carnival in Silicon Valley (US) and Shanghai (China) starting from October 24. GeekPwn, the first worldwide security geek contest for smart life, offers 5 million RMB as prize pool for successful “PWNing” with talent, break-limitation minds and codes.

GeekPwn, a stage for white-hat hackers “PWNing ” smart devices, finding and fixing system vulnerabilities and protecting smart life, set a special AI (artificial intelligence) Security session for the first time in 2017. It includes AI PWN and PWN AI submissions, which finally improve people’s smart life in the AI age.

AI Security Becomes a Necessity

After noticing AI security issues, GeekPwn encourages contestants to test and improve AI’s mechanism on security and analysis, which finally ensures AI’s development in a healthy and sustainable way.

It brings lots of uncertainty and concerns of human being’s future if AI is maliciously controlled and mislead. For example, some products were mislead and cheated recently on picture recognition and classification, which was used by Internet crimes to spread violent, porn and terrorism pictures online.

GeekPwn has started research on “antagonistic machining learning practice” and recruited and touched top-level AI security talents since the end of 2015, when AI-related risks were exposed initially. During the GeekPwn 2016 Silicon Valley session, OpenAI scientist Ian Goodfellow, the inventor of GAN, shared the latest achievement the “antagonistic imaging” can cheat AI easily on picture recognition in the real world. The fact of that AI can be cheated triggered GeekPwn’s attention, because AI’s error and imperfection become loopholes used by hackers.

PWN AI and AI PWN

The special AI Security session includes two types of submissions as PWN AI and AI PWN.

PWN AI exploits vulnerabilities in the AI systems to make them stop working or make wrong decisions, covering all public AI services, products, libraries and frameworks. The target areas include computer vision, voice recognition, natural language processing, autonomous driving, malware detection and etc. For example, hackers with PWN AI are able to use any faces to unlock a phone with facial recognition and exploit vulnerabilities in autonomous driving system and make the system unable to detect some specific obstacles.

AI PWN takes AI, such as algorisms in computer vision, voice recognition, natural language processing, autonomous driving, etc., as primary or assistant tool in hacking/PWNing targets. For example, AI PWN includes using AI for speech synthesis to simulate the target people’s voice and pass target authentication system with high probability; using AI to determine the hand actions from video clips to identify the password input with high correct recognition rate and using AI to identify complex machine codes with high correct recognition rate.

“PWN Everything” to Protect the World

Besides the new AI Security Session, GeekPwn continues its DNA of “PWN Everything” as setting no limit on PWN targets. Smart devices, IoT (Internet of Things) products in public markets are all acceptable PWN targets. Contestants can PWN all pubic devices, through getting system control, accessing private data or breaking through original security mechanisms in reasonable attack conditions.

Unlock smart phones with noses, remote hijack any one of the world’s communications and find the backbone of network equipment vulnerabilities that impact hundreds of millions of Internet users – those PWNing cases already existed in the previous GeekPwn events. GeekPwn offers white hat hackers and top security experts a unique stage to break the limitation of minds and show great power. Besides showing talent, white hat hackers in fact help several hundred firms to fix security loopholes and vulnerabilities, which finally brings safer smart life.

www.geekpwn.org

PWN AI

Targets

For all public AI Services, Products, Libraries, Frameworks, if you can exploit vulnerabilities to make the AI system or component stop working, or lead the AI system or component make wrong decisions, please register. The target areas include Computer Vision, Voice Recognition, Natural Language Processing, Autonomous Driving, Malware Detection, etc. The target AI frameworks include mainstream frameworks like TensorFlow, TorchNet, Caffe, etc.

Examples

Use any face to unlock a phone with facial recognition.

Exploit vulnerabilities in autonomous driving system, make the system unable to detect some specific obstacles.

Exploit vulnerabilities in AI framework, make deployed AI system stop working in some specific situations.

AI PWN

Scenario

Contestant takes AI (Various algorisms in Computer Vision, Voice Recognition, Natural Language Processing, Autonomous Driving, etc.) as primary or assistant method in hacking process to break the limit of target system. Therefore the original functions of target system stop working, or information leaked.

Examples

Using AI method for speech synthesis, simulate the target people’s voice and pass target authentication system with high probability.

Using AI method to determine the hand actions from video clips to identify the password input with high correct recognition rate.

Using AI method to identify complex CAPTCHA with high correct recognition rate.

About GeekPwn 2017

GeekPwn is an international security community focusing in smart life. GeekPwn is held by Keen every May 12th and Oct 24th to provide chances for security geeks to show their talents.

From IoT, Smart devices to AI services, any successful compromises of security restrictions have chances to be accepted. New match types, geek shows and PWN of AI are available on GeekPwn 2017 Carnival held in Silicon Valley (US) and Shanghai (China).

About GeekPwn lab

GeekPwn lab is the security research team of Keen Cloud Tech. The team focuses on helping worldwide leading software manufacturers, which have adopted advanced security engineering methodologies, to discover and fix security vulnerabilities.

Cocoon Cam Receives Two Prestigious Childcare Magazine Awards

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Cocoon Cam is honored to accept two important awards this month in the parenting and childcare industry. Baby Maternity Magazine and Creative Child Magazine, both highly respected in the baby product market, have each awarded the groundbreaking baby monitor company their top honors. 

Cocoon Cam has created the world’s first baby breathing monitor that uses computer vision and artificial intelligence to monitor a baby’s breathing without any wearables or anything touching the baby. Cocoon Cam lets parents monitor their baby’s breathing, sleep and activity at any time, from anywhere in the world through a smartphone application (iOS and Android). Unlike other baby health tracking technologies, Cocoon Cam is completely non-invasive and does not require any mattress pad, wearable electronics or pinging the baby with radar or sonar signals.

Each year, over 50 pregnant women, new moms and caregiver professionals are invited to review the latest and greatest products. Unlike most review programs, reviewers are asked to evaluate each product thoroughly. Winning a Baby Maternity Award illustrates the manufacturers’ dedication to their industry and serves as a testament to a great production.

Creative Child’s Awards Program takes a unique approach to reviewing products by having moms, music educators and early education professionals complete the reviews. Winning a Creative Child Award illustrates the manufacturers’ creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great production.

ABOUT COCOON CAM

Cocoon Cam is a Silicon Valley-based technology company using computer vision for remote health monitoring. The company’s first product is a category-defining baby monitor that detects a baby’s vitals purely by passively collecting a video feed from the baby monitor and analyzing the data in the cloud. Parents gain instant access, via their mobile devices, to longitudinal data and real-time alerts for metrics such as breathing, and with future releases, temperature fluctuations, heart rate and movement. Unlike competing technologies in the baby monitoring space, Cocoon Cam is completely non-invasive and requires no connected wires or wearables. Cocoon Cam has received the ‘Seal of Approval’ of the National Parenting Center, an R&D grant from the National Science Foundation and has completed IRB-approved research validation studies at UC San Diego and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford.
