The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2021-05-06T05:28:33Z Acorn Experts flag key LMS features and functionalities to consider when looking to buy 2021-05-06T05:28:33Z acorn-experts-flag-key-lms-features-and-functionalities-to-consider-when-looking-to-buy For anyone looking to acquire a learning management system (LMS) for their organisation, two things are important to consider and compare: features and functionalities. That’s according to the Acorn internal subject matter experts who have been hard at work to explore these areas in detail. Each organisation will have different requirements, and suppliers usually work within defined industries. Without research, it’s easy to attain an ill-fitting system – wasting time and resources that might be needed elsewhere.   Blake Proberts (Co-Founder and Managing Director) says choosing features “that align with your organisational goals will reap you the most benefits”.   The most important features to consider in an LMS include administration, learning analytics, authoring tools, integrations and customisation. Functionalities are all about what a feature (or all features combined) can do for a user. The team go on to consider a huge raft of these including: SCORM compliance, gamification, accessibility, performance tracking, eCommerce, streamlined processes and many more. The full article is available now on their Acorn Labs blog: https://bit.ly/32ZgHTi   Mr Proberts goes on to say, “As an example, consider the differing accessibility needs of your workforce. It might be something as simple as responsive screens or more complex like screen readers and bring-your-own-device compatibility.” “Ensuring that you’re selecting features that make the user experience seamless will in turn ensure your engagement rates are high.”   In addition to being a useful information resource, the article also provides a handy checklist where organisations can simply tick the boxes to get a clear picture of which software stacks up best.       Pursuit Technology is a software development company which seeks to streamline systems through innovative ideas and solutions. Pursuit is all about putting the customer at the centre of everything we create. Since the inception of our Acorn LMS, we’ve worked with everyone from local businesses to federal government agencies.

Forensic DNA preservation method best for gut microbiome samples: Microba Life Sciences 2021-05-06T01:44:49Z forensic-dna-preservation-method-best-for-gut-microbiome-samples-microba-life-sciences The company’s scientists conducted one of the most rigorous studies to date to evaluate the performance of five room temperature faecal preservation techniques, finding a method designed for preserving forensic DNA outperformed other commonly used faecal preservation methods.   Using metagenomic analysis, the study highlighted the FLOQSwab in an active drying tube as the top method when compared to four other faecal preservation techniques. Microba Co-founder, leading microbiologist and senior author on the paper, Professor Philip Hugenholtz, explained that it was critical for microbial communities to be accurately and reproducibly preserved for important advancements in medicine to be made from gut microbiome research. “Interest has been increasing in the gut microbiome as a marker for the diagnosis and treatment of a range of human diseases over recent years,” he said. “This means that researchers must be confident that their sampling method will provide accurate, stable and reproducible results for gut microbial communities.” Senior Scientist and lead author, Dr Alena Pribyl, explained that the alternative could lead to researchers chasing false leads or missing key biomarkers. “Very few studies have critically assessed faecal preservation methods at the species-level using metagenomic sequencing, despite the importance of getting this first step right in a gut microbiome study,” she said.  For this comprehensive study, the company compared both microbial species and functional profiles from five room temperature preservation methods to the commonly accepted best practice of flash freezing samples. Six replicates from five different individuals were used for each method, for a total of 180 metagenomes. “This is the largest study to assess both the technical and compositional reproducibility of various room temperature microbial preservation methods, and we found that not all methods are able to accurately preserve faecal microbial communities.” Dr Pribyl explained. “While the FLOQSwab in an active drying tube outperformed other methods, we also found two of the methods resulted in unpredictable outgrowth of facultatively anaerobic species, such as E. coli. “We therefore recommend against the use of these methods for room temperature storage.” The scientists further evaluated the best performing method at different storage temperatures to determine its range of use, finding that it accurately preserved microbial communities at temperatures ranging from -20ᵒC to 50ᵒC for up to four weeks. “This study shows the importance of rigorously evaluating faecal preservation methods,” Professor Hugenholtz said. “It also shows that the FLOQSwab in an active drying tube is an excellent option for gut microbiome sample preservation, especially where faecal samples need to be collected and transported across long distances.” The study was published in ISME Communications (A Nature journal) in May and can be accessed here: https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fmicb.2021.643682/full   Agency for the Next Economy 2021-05-05T08:22:06Z agency-for-the-next-economy Underpinned by a proprietary model for predicting future human behaviour, the founders have affectionately named “BE.AP.S.” – Behavioural Economics x Applied Psych. x Strategy.   BE.AP.S. provides sustainable and socially conscious brands with a cheat sheet for the next economy.

Advanced Navigation’s Certus Evo Helps Nextcore’s UAV LiDAR Fly To New Heights 2021-05-05T02:16:09Z advanced-navigation-s-certus-evo-helps-nextcore-s-uav-lidar-fly-to-new-heights Nextcore is an Australian-based company who specialise in making UAV-mounted LiDAR systems. Established in 2012, Nextcore’s solutions have been used in the mining industry, by surveyors and environmental specialists all over the world.  If there’s one thing that defines the Nextcore team it’s their passion to continually improve the technology of UAV LiDAR in order to make cost-effective, reliable equipment that is easy to use. This led to the RN80 project, a UAV-mounted LiDAR payload that could be flown higher in the air and still deliver a survey-grade dataset.  The Challenge: Creating a UAV-mounted LiDAR that can fly at 80 meters above ground level. Previously Nextcore’s UAV-mounted LiDAR could only fly at 50 metres above the ground, which ran the risk of colliding with vegetation. To avoid this, the team set the goal of increasing their altitude to 80 metres above the ground.  Operation at this altitude not only reduces the risk of collisions with trees, it also enables surveyors to cover larger areas, greatly improving the solution’s efficiency. However, this ambition came with increasing risk.  “The problem with flying a UAV LiDAR payload higher off the ground is the higher you fly the more inaccuracies you build into the LiDAR dataset” says Ashley Cox, COO and Co-Founder at Nextcore. “The challenge was finding hardware we could put into the system that would allow us to achieve a survey-grade outcome even though we were flying our drones higher”. The Solution: Certus Evo After reviewing the different inertial navigation systems available on the market, Ashley and the Nextcore team selected Advanced Navigation’s Certus Evo to be used in the RN80 payload.  The Certus Evo was chosen because:  It was highly accurate, reducing any angular errors from flying higher It was easy to integrate into Nextcore’s existing systems It was cost effective, allowing Nextcore to pass their savings on to their customers The Outcome: Soaring above expectations “When we had done our calculations we expected we’d be able to fly 80 metres above ground level” says Ashley. Instead, the Certus Evo performed so well it enabled Nexctore to produce a UAV-mounted LiDAR that operates at 100 metres above the ground, exceeding their initial goal. This became the RN100 UAV LiDAR, which allows Nextcore’s customers to fly more safely, cover a larger area and still achieve a survey-grade outcome.  “We are excited to have partnered with Nextcore on this very strategic initiative to expand their capabilities and exceed their expectations for delivering on their business objectives,” says John Colvin, Chief Revenue Officer at Advanced Navigation.  John continued, “Nextcore has always been on the forefront and cutting edge by pushing the boundaries with their UAV-mounted LiDAR systems. This has driven us to produce our next generation of navigation solutions, like the Certus Evo, which will provide the highest performance results in the industry.  We are looking forward to our continued partnership with Nextcore and accelerating their success as they pursue their global expansion.” About Advanced Navigation Advanced Navigation was founded in Sydney in 2012 by engineers Xavier Orr and Chris Shaw to commercialize thesis research into AI neural network-based inertial navigation. The first product met the market with great success and the company expanded rapidly adding a portfolio of navigation offerings and moving into a diverse range of deep tech fields such as underwater acoustics, GPS, radio frequency systems, sensors and robotics.  Today Advanced Navigation is a supplier to some of the biggest companies around the world, including NASA, Airbus, Boeing, Tesla, Google, Apple and General Motors. Advanced Navigation is headquartered in Sydney, Australia with a large research facility in Perth, Australia and sales offices around the world. Advanced Navigation is an Australian manufacturer exporting globally while maintaining carbon-neutral operations. Visit our website to learn more about our navigation solutions.

Given the growth of deepfakes, bots, and sophisticated spoofing attacks, Jumio has integrated certified liveness detection to detect when photos, videos, or even realistic 3D masks are used instead of actual selfies to create online accounts. Jumio offers the most mature identity solutions for the Australian market, accepting and reliably verifying multiple types of government-issued IDs including passports, driver’s licenses and ID cards. Pairing the DVS database check with real-time identity verification provides organisations with a higher level of assurance that the ID document is valid and was issued by the Australian government. “The challenge of today’s organisations is to create a seamless identity verification process while reducing transaction friction and deterring fraud,” said Dean Hickman-Smith, Jumio’s chief revenue officer. “We are extremely proud of the work we’ve done with National Crime Check and look forward to taking our partnership to the next level as NCC scales its InstaID system to accelerate user onboarding while simultaneously reducing online fraud.” “The partnership between InstaID and Jumio is really exciting for us. The solution allows organisations to verify the identity of individuals in real time with a high level of assurance. It combines the power of Jumio’s leading OCR, biometric facial recognition and liveness detection technology with biographic verification via the Australian Federal Government Document Verification Service (DVS) to give you confidence in who you are dealing with,” said Martin Lazarevic, InstaID general manager.

Yubico Expands FIPS 140-2 Product Line with YubiHSM 2 FIPS, the World’s Smallest FIPS Validated Hardware Security Module 2021-05-04T23:40:28Z yubico-expands-fips-140-2-product-line-with-yubihsm-2-fips-the-world-s-smallest-fips-validated-hardware-security-module Yubico, the leading provider of hardware authentication security keys, today announced its latest FIPS 140-2 product offering, and the first of its kind for the company: YubiHSM 2 FIPS. Today’s news comes alongside the YubiKey 5 FIPS Series launch, the company’s most recent security key line to receive FIPS 140-2 validation.  The YubiHSM 2 launched in 2017, but this marks the first FIPS-validated version of the product. The YubiHSM 2 FIPS is certified at FIPS 140-2, Level 3. With the added availability of YubiHSM 2 FIPS, organisations in highly-regulated industries such as government, financial services, healthcare, and energy now have the opportunity to reap the same security benefits that many other YubiHSM users have. This includes advanced protection for certificate authority (CA) keys, database master keys, code signing, authentication/access tokens, manufacturing processes and component authenticity checks, IoT gateways or proxies, file encryption, cryptocurrency exchanges, and more.  “The YubiHSM 2 FIPS is an exciting addition to our recently updated FIPS-validated product line,” said Suresh Thiru, Chief Product Officer, Yubico. “Our high-risk customers are now equipped with a full product suite that helps them not only achieve and maintain compliance, but also advance their security posture across the entire organisation. From protecting servers to users, regardless of their location, Yubico is the partner who strives to do it all.”  Primary benefits of the YubiHSM 2 FIPS include:  Secure hardware protection for cryptographic keys — The YubiHSM 2 FIPS enables secure key storage and operations on tamper-resistant hardware, with audit logging. This prevents accidental copying and distribution of keys, and remote theft of cryptographic software keys. Extensive cryptographic capabilities include: hashing, key wrapping, asymmetric signing, decryption, attestation and more.  Innovative design for flexible use and simple deployment — Traditional rack-mounted and card-based HSMs are not practical for many organisations due to their size and deployment complexity. The YubiHSM 2 FIPS offers a portable ‘nano’ form factor that allows fast and flexible deployment across diverse environments. It fits easily into a USB-A slot, lying almost flush to remain concealed.  Low-cost, high security ROI — The YubiHSM 2 FIPS delivers government-grade high cryptographic security and operations at a price point that is up to 90% cheaper than traditional HSMs. Additionally, low-power usage reduces business energy consumption.  Along with the rest of Yubico’s FIPS product lineup, YubiHSM 2 FIPS is manufactured using stringent processes and a secure supply chain for trustworthy components, ensuring strong security and regulatory compliance for the most security-conscious organisations. For more information on YubiHSM 2 FIPS, please visit the Yubico website. It is also available for purchase on the Yubico store, through Yubico’s dedicated sales team, or from any Yubico-approved channel partners and resellers.  Internet pawn: selling pre-loved goods an easy way to pay your bills 2021-05-04T23:17:16Z internet-pawn-selling-pre-loved-goods-an-easy-way-to-pay-your-bills MELBOURNE, Victoria, May 5, 2021 - Local Melbourne company, Warrp, is leading the growing ecommerce trend enabling users to list their pre-owned goods for sale in less than 18 seconds. Warrp Co-Founder and CEO, Matthew Ng, said many Australians don’t realise how much money they are sitting on with unused items taking up space at home. “Globally, the top 100 online marketplaces sold $2.67 trillion worth of goods last year, so there exists a huge market for consumers to sell online,” said Mr Ng. “Household and utility bills are rising in a time when many people are still recovering from the pandemic. Warrp provides a safe and easy way to get rid of your unused items and relieve your financial burden. “Warrp’s online marketplace lets users list any item for free, bypassing the need for pawn shops, brokers and other middlemen, which means fast sales and more money in the hands of everyday Australians.” Nine million Australian households spent a total of $50.46 billion shopping online in 2020, representing 57 percent growth compared to 2019, according to the Australia Post 2021 eCommerce Industry Report. Warrp Co-Founder and CTO, Roman Granovskyi, said the ecommerce market was rapidly growing, and with sky-high demand for online purchases came a lucrative market for consumers to sell their pre-owned goods. “We want Warrp to be as profitable to our users as possible, so unlike eBay or Amazon we don’t charge listing or subscription fees,” said Mr Granovskyi. “Our nominal transaction fee, which only occurs when a transaction is completed satisfactorily by the buyer and seller, is extremely competitive and is waived for new and repeat account users by rewarding them with Sale Transaction Credits to be used monthly. “Some digital escrow agencies charge in excess of 10% without any caps and in most cases a minimum fee of around the $100 mark whereas Warrp’s full transaction fee might only cost the user less than a cup of coffee with a minimum fee of only 99 cents. “Users can also redeem a huge range of free and discounted offers through our Trusted Partner Network, which in many cases hold greater value than any transaction fees incurred on the site. “More Australian’s than ever before are shopping online and we’ve created a platform that taps into this growing market, enabling everyday Aussies to make quick cash by selling their pre-loved goods.” Warrp’s innovative dynamic pricing system means users can list an item without a price and let the platform find its own market ‘sweet spot’ for a transaction to occur between a potential buyer and the seller. Safety is at the core of Warrp’s identity, with the platform introducing a PayID-only payment solution, escrowed transactions and a Safe Meetup & Pickup delivery option to help protect its users. Warrp can be downloaded on iPhones via the Australian App Store, with cross-platform versions for all other smartphone and web devices to be released at a later date.
