TOKYO, Jan 13, 2021 – (JCN Newswire) – Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. has announced the development of a technology that utilizes deep learning to recognize the positions and connections of adjacent joints in complex movements or behavior in which multiple joints move in tandem. This makes it possible to achieve greater accuracy in recognizing, for instance, when a person performs a task like removing objects from a box. This technology successfully achieved the world’s highest accuracy(1) against the world standard benchmark(2) in the field of behavior recognition, with significant gains over the results achieved using conventional technologies, which don’t make use of information on neighboring joints.

By leveraging this technology to perform checks of manufacturing procedures or unsafe behavior in public spaces, Fujitsu aims to contribute to significant improvements in public safety and in the work place, helping to deliver on the promise of a safer and more secure society for all.

Fujitsu will present the details of this technology at the 25th International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR 2020), which is being held online from January 10th, 2021 (Sunday) to January 15th, 2021 (Friday).

Background

In recent years, advances in AI technology have made it possible to recognize human behavior from video images using deep learning. This technology offers a variety of promising applications in a wide range of real-world scenarios, for example, in performing checks of manufacturing procedures in factories or detecting unsafe behavior in public spaces. In general, human behavior recognition utilizing AI relies on temporal changes in the position of each of the skeletal joints, including in the hands, elbows, and shoulders, as identifying features, which are then linked to simple movement patterns such as standing or sitting.
With time series behavior-recognition technology developed by Fujitsu Labs, Fujitsu has successfully realized highly-accurate image recognition using a deep learning model that can operate with high-accuracy even for complex behaviors in which multiple joints change in conjunction with each other, such as removing objects from a box during unpacking.

About the Newly Developed Technology

Complex movements like unpacking involve hand, elbow, and shoulder joints moving in tandem with the arm bending and stretching. Fujitsu has developed a new AI model for a graph convolutional neural networks(3) that performs convolution operation of the graph structure by adopting a graph consisting of edges connecting adjacent joints based on the structure of the human body with the joint position as a node (Vertex). By training this model in advance using the time series data of joints, the connection strength (Weight) with neighboring joints can be optimized, and effective connection relationships for behavior recognition can be acquired. With conventional technologies, it was necessary to accurately grasp the individual characteristics of each joint. With an AI model that has already been trained, the combined features of the adjacent joints that are linked can be extracted, making it possible to achieve highly-accurate recognition for complex movements.

This technology was evaluated against the world standard benchmark in the field of behavior recognition using skeleton data, and in the case of simple behaviors such as standing and sitting in the open data set, the accuracy rate was maintained at the same level as that of conventional technology(4) that does not use information on neighboring joints. In the case of complex behaviors like a person unpacking a box or throwing an object, however, the accuracy rate improved greatly, to achieve an overall improvement of more than 7% over the conventional alternative to reach the world’s highest recognition accuracy.

Future Plans
By adding the newly developed AI model for recognizing complex behaviors obtained with this technology to the 100 basic behavior already accommodated by Fujitsu’s behavioral analysis technology “Actlyzer,”(5), it will become possible rapidly deploy new, highly-accurate recognition models. Fujitsu ultimately aims to leverage this new capability to roll out the system in fiscal year 2021, and contribute to the resolution of real-world issues to deliver a safer and more secure society.

(1) World’s highest accuracy: As of January 13th, 2021. In the Kinetics-Skeleton category.
(2) World standard benchmark: Kinetics-Skeleton dataset benchmarks.
(3) graph convolutional neural networks: Deep neural network for convolutional operation on graph structure.
(4) Same level as that of conventional technology
Using the Kinetics-Skeleton dataset released by Chinese University of Hong Kong, an evaluation was made with the technology released by the same university in 2018. The correct answer rate is the rate at which the predicted result matches the correct answer.
(5) Behavioral analysis technology “Actlyzer”
Deep learning technology that can recognize a variety of subtle and complex human movements without relying on large amounts of training data. (Press Release: 2019/11/25)

The Newly Recognized Player in the DeFi Industry

Cryptocurrency and Blockchain aficionados dream of debuts like this. It’s fabled: mass adoption and platforms welcoming with open arms. Few ever obtain such widespread appeal and acceptance quite like CFXQ token of CFX Quantum and its service ZEROONE.

So far, in one month alone, seven exchanges have onboarded CFXQ: DIGIFINEX, LATOKEN, P2P, WHITEBIT, XT, COINSBIT, and, of course, their own platform, CFX Quantum Zeroone Wallet. This is proof that the industry is recognizing CFX Quantum as an emerging player in the DeFi industry.

But CFX Quantum and its service ZEROONE have several successes that extend beyond their platform onboarding and applications. There are many strong rumors that CFX is working diligently on a banking services project. Plus, their ZEROONE trials have been quite favorable, leading to even more rumors and expectations for future growth.

So where does that lead us? What is the nature of CFX Quantum and its service ZEROONE, and what does the future hold for a cryptocurrency and blockchain use case poised to make such an impact?

Advertisement &  & 

In design and in practice, CFX Quantum and its service ZEROONE is an exercise in safety and security when trading. It’s no secret that risk is an equal currency to any currency, since risk is tied to any modicum of trading or transaction.

Thus, CFX Quantum and its service ZEROONE has, somehow, achieved the impossible: the ability to make profits at zero risk through an innovative application of arbitrage trading. The method of execution: CFXQ quantum-inspired computing with the Digital Annealer chip from Fujitsu, resulting in ZEROONE.

By staking ZEROONE, any owner can be rewarded with a premium of 1% per month. The Digital Annealer chip offers astounding speeds that create a constant flux of results, so premiums of 1%+ can be achieved with no risk to the capital involved.

While this seems like a dream come true, which owners and traders have been hunting for over a period of decades, if not from the origin of trading itself, the nature of CFX Quantum and its service ZEROONE is little more than an optimization of arbitrage trading. ZEROONE is a stable coin pegged in Euros with assets backed in Crypto, specifically USDT.

Of course, that ‘little more’ difference packs a wallop. A combination of hardware and software, the Fujitsu Digital Annealer chip can calculate immense numbers of outcomes and produce results in real time—even beating CFX’s own expectations and the fastest supercomputers and companies whose entire business model is based on hedging.

While real quantum computing may be years away, still too expensive and inefficient, CFX Quantum and its service ZEROONE, along with the Fujitsu Digital Annealer chip, is a ray of light and breath of fresh air.

Want to see proof? What if you could buy a cryptocurrency on one exchange, and immediately sell it on another exchange for a higher price? The result would be constant growth, would it not? This is where the CFX Quantum and its service ZEROONE stands— the other side of a divide where time dictates how much money can be made within a given transaction.

But does it really come down to the need for speed? No, the methodology employed as much as greater finesse and other minutiae are what empower it to make the right moves at the right speeds to maximize potential. You don’t want to be a bull in a china shop—you want to be a bull that can leverage an entire market.

That’s the power of CFX Quantum and its service ZEROONE.

“Blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum have paved the way of innovation for cryptocurrencies and new applications like Denarius (D): Kronos, to bridge the gap for a faster and cheaper way to transact and utilize cryptocurrency.” — James R. (Cryptocurrency User)

Kronos, a new application beta from the developers of Denarius (D), provides people a way to socialize and transact without a central authority. This new proof of concept takes decentralization, blockchain, and privacy to the next level. “Users” are able to freely join the Kronos Chat platform, as it is redundantly available due to it using peer-to-peer technology. Kronos has no downtime or possible banning of the platform. Examples of this in current history include, Amazon Web Services (AWS) taking down the Parler app’s platform hosting [1]. Google Play Store and Apple App Store removing the Parler application [2]. Signal App going offline [3]. Whatsapp invasion of privacy [4]…the list goes on.

Kronos is a secure cryptocurrency wallet but also chat reinvented. With the Kronos Chat you can chat and send cryptocurrency across the world in seconds. End-to-end encrypted messages and no storage of your chats, anywhere. Kronos Chat is powered by YOU by leveraging the latest peer-to-peer technologies. Censorship is everywhere and increasing daily. Kronos Wallet allows you to be truly free, with “self-moderation” you finally have the power to choose your own censorship while you socialize. Kronos stores only required data securely and locally, not on an unknown centralized server in the cloud. Kronos supports optional Two Factor Authentication (2FA) and One-time Password (OTP) Yubikey authentication and uses BIP39 technology for your cryptocurrency wallet with the most advanced and leading encryption technologies available today.

Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency to solve the Byzantine Generals Problem, but transactions are slow. Ethereum created a smart contract platform, but transaction fees are expensive. Denarius stayed true to its roots by forking the original Bitcoin Satoshi code and modified the coin to become a faster and cheaper alternative to Bitcoin. Now Denarius with Kronos changes things. BTC, ETH, and D coins can be sent using the Kronos Wallet with more cryptocurrencies and tokens being added soon, possibly USDC, USDT, Namecoin (NMC), Devault (DVT), Primecoin (XPM), etc. Interplanetary File System (IPFS) integration and file uploading directly inside of the Kronos Chat also allows the user to upload files such as documents, images, and media directly inside of Kronos, ready to be shared via the plethora of IPFS public gateways available.

President Joe Biden named Allison Herren Lee acting Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Thursday, the agency announced.

Lee was nominated and confirmed to the SEC in 2019 to fill the open Democratic spot on the commission once held by Kara Stein. She succeeds former Chairman Elad Roisman, who was appointed to lead the investment regulator while the agency was heading for transition after Jay Clayton stepped down.

Both Roisman and Lee were nominated by Trump to the US top watchdog, which is legally barred from having any more than three members from either political party.

“It’s an honor to continue my service on the Commission in this new role. I have tremendous respect for my colleagues on the Commission and the exceptional staff across the agency and look forward to working closely with them. Together we will continue the agency’s work of protecting investors and ensuring market integrity,” acting chair Lee said.

Lee specializes in securities law, writing and lecturing around the world about corporate law and financial regulation. She has originally joined the SEC in 2005 and served in various roles for 13 years, mostly as an attorney with the agency’s enforcement arm.

Additionally, Lee was named counsel to former SEC commissioner, Kara Stein, and then as a senior counsel in the Division of Enforcement’s Complex Financial Instruments Unit.

Her long stint with the government service followed seven years in private practice focusing on antitrust, securities and commercial litigation.

“During my time as Commissioner, I have focused on climate and sustainability, and those issues will continue to be a priority for me,” Lee added.

Lee’s nomination comes as a surprise as many reports suggested Gary Gensler, the former Chief of Commodity Futures Trading Commission, was Biden’s likely pick to lead the SEC. Her prospects of winning confirmation are supported by Democrats winning two Senate run-off elections in Georgia this month.

Names floated to replace the former SEC’s Head, Jay Clayton, included Preet Bharara, Manhattan’s former top federal prosecutor under Obama’s administration whom Trump fired in 2017. Lee was among candidates who could be named interim chair as a new chair is considered.
