    AIA Vitality Taps MyDoc To Reward Employees in Singapore For Healthier Lifestyles

    SINGAPORE, Dec 19, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - MyDoc, Asia's first value-based digital managed care platform has been tapped to digitally deliver health screening results of AIA Vitality members in Singapore, creating the first digitally integrated corporate health screening programme for the global insurer.

    As a digital healthcare provider, MyDoc is part of Singapore's Ministry of Health's (MOH) regulatory sandbox for telemedicine, allowing it to offer digital managed care services in Singapore. MyDoc has shown a potential reduction in patient healthcare costs by at least 16 percent, according to a study done by a senior economist at the University of Southern California's Center for Economic and Social Research. MyDoc demonstrated a potential cost saving as high as 28 percent resulting from improvements in chronic diseases management and aversion of accident and emergency (A&E) services.

    The AIA Vitality Basic Health Check (BHS) identifies members' risk for chronic disease by checking their body mass index (BMI), blood pressure, blood glucose, and cholesterol levels.

    "AIA is a market leader, and MyDoc is excited to play a role in helping AIA Vitality members lead a healthy life," said Dr. Snehal Patel, CEO and co-Founder of MyDoc. "Our data reveals there is a higher incidence of patients at risk and undiagnosed prior to using MyDoc. Patient engagement with health screening results is also much lower without the ease of consulting provided by MyDoc post-screening. We aim to make a difference by offering AIA Vitality members 24/7/365 access to a multidisciplinary care team of doctors, nurses, nutritionists, health coaches, primary care coordinators, health screening laboratories and pharmacies."

    Our partnership enables us to help AIA Vitality members identify their risk for chronic diseases. This allows for early detection so that appropriate treatment can be administered and subsequently monitored," said Mr. Richard Wyber, Head of Vitality, AIA Singapore.

    "As the leading employee benefits provider in Singapore, AIA Singapore is excited to partner with MyDoc to be spearheading Singapore's first digitally integrated corporate health screening programme, helping Singaporeans lead healthier, longer, and better lives through wellness in the workplace. We look forward to working with more companies to enhance their healthcare programs and make a positive impact on employee engagement, wellbeing, productivity and retention levels," added Richard.

    AIA Vitality members who complete their health screening through MyDoc will receive Vitality points of up to 6,000 if their results are within the healthy ranges.

    In Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia, MyDoc has established successful and ongoing implementations with the largest insurers and Fortune 500 companies in the region including AIA, Aetna, and Cigna. By redesigning key touch points along the patient-clinician journey and integrating key stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystem, MyDoc has built a new model of primary care that improves patient health outcomes at lower costs to payers.

    Headquartered in Singapore, MyDoc has also established a presence in Malaysia, Hong Kong, India, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. Further expansion into the region is being planned through new partnerships that will be announced in 2019. The company expects its digital health screening, workplace virtual clinic and digital pharmacy, and chronic disease management programmes will be made available to over 15 million employees in the new year.

    By Takashi Niino, President and CEO, NEC Corporation

    TOKYO, Dec 19, 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - As a world-leading provider of facial recognition and other biometric, as well as information and communications technologies, NEC Corporation welcomes greater industry collaboration and effective discussion for the future of facial recognition technology and business. As a point of background, NEC produces face, iris, fingerprint, palm print, finger vein, voice and ear acoustic recognition technologies, and has over 700 biometric recognition installations in over 70 countries around the world.

    In recent weeks, we've seen renewed calls for government regulation and discussions about how we as an industry can build a foundation of responsibility to protect people against discrimination, invasions of privacy and violations of human rights.

    NEC Corporation welcomes this debate as we believe it will lead to solutions that can make our world a better place. Furthermore, we are eager to move the discussions forward.

    As more companies come forward to add their voices to this dialogue, I believe we will start to see new and different roles that these technologies can play in protecting and improving our global communities.

    In the United States, for example, the Department of Homeland Security is today using facial recognition technology at more than a dozen airports to positively identify travelers entering and exiting the United States. Three days after the technology was introduced at Dulles International Airport, an imposter was stopped using a fake document. As recently as late November, the lead architect of this system from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported that it had identified at least 36 imposters so far. Additionally, the first curb-to-gate biometric experience in the U.S. just launched at a major international airport terminal to a positive customer response, potentially changing the future of travel.

    NEC, therefore, supports various governments' considerations for reasonable policy, setting privacy standards for personal information and preventing unlawful discrimination related to this technology. Businesses, consumers, and the government should work together to help balance the need for privacy with the benefits of protecting our society, securing our borders and providing consumer convenience without the fear of negative consequences.

    Accuracy is vitally important to the effectiveness of biometric technologies. At NEC, we are committed to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and their evaluations. NEC has a nearly decade-long leadership position and pedigree where NIST evaluations of our facial recognition technologies are concerned, and you can read more about it on our global website.

    In addition, NEC has established a "Digital Trust Business Strategy Division" to create and promote a strategy based on "Human Rights by Design," considering the impact of the adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) on society and the utilization of biometric information on human rights and privacy.

    NEC seeks an adoption path for these technologies that is in line with the worldwide principals of freedom, justice, rights to privacy, transparency and continuous improvement. At NEC, we strongly believe that facial recognition can add significant value to our lives.

    Demonstration Equipment
    - Supports increasing demand for 5G networks -

    TOKYO, Dec 19, 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC Corporation announced today the world's first(1) successful demonstration of real-time digital wireless Orbital Angular Momentum (OAM) mode multiplexing transmission over 40 meters in the 80GHz-band. This technology can help solve the ever increasing demand for high-capacity wireless connections for 5G networks. NEC aims to use this technology for its iPASOLINK series of ultra-compact microwave and mmWave communication products, which are capable of extremely reliable, high-capacity mobile backhaul solutions for 5G networks.

    In recent years, more and more base stations are required for proper transmission coverage, especially in hot spots and ultra-dense urban areas, where the cell grid becomes very dense. Additionally, datacenters will be moving to the edge in order to handle low latency requirements. However, it is difficult to connect these high-density cell sites with just optical fibers.

    Moreover, traffic volume between 5G base stations can reach up to 100Gbps and it is extremely challenging to create sufficient transmission capacity with existing methods, such as using wider channels, multi channels or increasing the modulation scheme. Therefore, high-capacity wireless backhaul is a key technology to cover the whole network and OAM mode multiplexing technology is attracting a great deal of attention.

    OAM is one of the physical characteristics of electro-magnetic wave propagation. A feature of an OAM signal is that it has a spiral phase front. The number of spiral planes in a signal is called an OAM mode, and the shape of all modes is different. This means that all of the OAM modes are independent of each other. Therefore, multiple OAM modes transmitted on the same channel simultaneously can be separated and demodulated at receivers. This is an OAM mode multiplexing transmission.

    NEC has developed a real-time digital signal processing circuit and successfully demonstrated, for the first time in the world, a wireless transmission over a distance of 40 meters with a modulation of 256 QAM in the E-band (71 to 86GHz) by multiplexing 8 OAM modes. In this demonstration, 7.4Gbps (8 modes x 8 bit/symbol x 115 Mbaud) were transmitted using a symbol rate(2) of 115 Mbaud.

    The newly developed digital signal processing circuit superposes and separates the OAM modes with high precision, which improves the spectrum efficiency.

    Going forward, NEC will work on research and development to realize 128 bps/Hz (8 modes x Dual polarization x 8 bit/symbol)(3), as well as 100 meter transmission in the higher frequency D-band (130 to 174.8GHz) by the end of in 2019. Transmission at 100 meters in the D-band will be one of the key technologies applicable to backhaul for 5G base stations and the fronthaul between CU (Central Unit: aggregation base station) and DU (Distributed Unit: remote station).

    This research and development was conducted as part of "The Research and Development Project of OAM Mode Multiplexing Radio enabling Ultra High Capacity Transmission in Millimeter wave bands" under a contract with the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, Japan.

    (1) According to NEC research
    (2) In the digital modulation, the transmission symbols are switched at fixed time intervals. The reciprocal of this switching interval is called baud rate (unit is [baud]).
    (3) Multiplexing of electro-magnetic waves in vertical and horizontal directions. As they do not interfere with each other, the technology has been conventionally used to achieve double-capacity in the wireless transmission.

    Installs Large Capacity Panels and Battery Storage at Kyushu Showroom

    TOKYO, Dec 20, 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) and Kyushu Mitsubishi Motors Sales Co., Ltd. are aiming to create a showroom that uses renewable energy to be self-sufficient - and can even provide a stable supply of power to electric vehicles in times of natural disaster.

    The Futamatase DENDO Drive Station showroom in Fukuoka Prefecture, Kyushu, uses new large capacity solar panels and a storage battery unit to store the power generated. It started operating on December 20, 2018.

    The system specification provides for the future reuse of EV and PHEV batteries, which can be incorporated into the storage unit.

    The solar panels installed at the Futamatase showroom have a 30kW generating capacity, equivalent to the showroom's average power consumption, while the battery unit can store 100kWh of electricity, equivalent to 10 days power usage in an average household.

    In addition to being able to supply EV and PHEVs with electricity for charging purposes, the use of a V2H(1) adapter allows the system to supply enough electricity to meet the showroom's needs using a combination of power extracted from EV and PHEV batteries and electricity generated by the solar panels.

    The project will collect a variety of data over the next year to demonstrate the viability of the solar panel and storage battery capacities and help shape future DENDO Drive Stations.

    In addition to standard showroom facilities, the DENDO Drive Station next-generation showroom features a presentation and demonstration area where visitors can learn and experience how EVs will play a key role in diverse energy grids of the future, and their value in times of natural disaster.

    Since MMC opened its first DENDO Drive Station in October 2016, it has converted 56 showrooms nationwide as of December 20, and expects to increase this to 200 by financial year 2020.

    By creating DENDO Drive Stations, MMC and Kyushu Mitsubishi Motors Sales are hoping to contribute to a more efficient and disaster-resilient energy grid by increasing the number of EVs and PHEVs on the road.

    Coconut Creek, FL, Dec 21, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- NTFU applauds the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill allowing federally insured banks to legally work with merchants for product processing as well as the removal of barriers for research and industrial hemp production.

    "The hemp industry has been challenged over the years because of banking restrictions. It has caused challenges from the standpoint of merchant product processing for hemp-derived CBD products. It also caused headwinds with respect to many aspects of the companies operating in the hemp public markets," said Edgar Ward, CEO and Founder of NutraFuels.

    Brightfield Group estimates the worth of the hemp CBD market to be $22 Billion by 2022, outpacing the rest of the cannabis market combined. "We've been planning and preparing for an increase in CBD product demand in anticipation of the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill," added Ward.

    The updated language from the Farm Bill defines hemp in a way that removes it from the Controlled Substances Act. Going forward, hemp will be classified as an agricultural commodity under federal law. Farmers will now benefit from the removal of barriers to obtaining crop insurance. Shareholders and manufacturers will see the removal of restrictions on importing and exporting hemp which contributes to the projected boost of growth for the hemp industry.

    "The lack of legal clarification and the longtime stigma around hemp has dampened the business opportunity and created concern for the investment community," said Ward. "The new law provides clarity and the legal parameters to enable companies like NutraFuels to capitalize on a more efficient operating environment and market expansion."

    NutraFuels is a fully reporting company with a class of securities registered with the SEC. The Company's filings can be viewed at www.sec.gov. NTFU's CBD products and information about the company's direct sales program can be found online at www.nutrahempcbd.com and by following the company on Instagram.

    Digital Annealer On-Premises server
    Digital Annealing Unit (DAU)
    Pricing and Availability
    Second generation expands scale from 1,024 bits to 8,192 bits, maximizing ability to rapidly solve combinatorial optimization problems; across a variety of industries

    TOKYO, Dec 21, 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu has announced the Japanese launch of the second generation of its Fujitsu Quantum-Inspired Computing Digital Annealer Cloud Service. The service utilizes Fujitsu's unique Digital Annealer architecture to quickly solve combinatorial optimization problems, drawing on an innovative design inspired by quantum phenomena. The second generation of the service expands the scale of problems that can be solved from the 1,024 bits of the first generation, launched in May 2018, to 8,192 bits, leading to substantial gains in precision and performance for enhanced problem-solving and new applications. Fujitsu plans to roll out the service to North America and Europe during fiscal 2018 (Fujitsu's fiscal year ends March 31), and thereafter to the rest of Asia as well. The second generation service can be applied to increasingly complex real-world problems in businesses and society, including manufacturing, financial services, retail and distribution as well as drug discovery, and can be expected to see use in various industries and fields.

    Fujitsu will offer the Fujitsu Quantum-inspired Computing Digital Annealer as an On-Premises Service starting in February 2019. With the new service, servers supporting the second generation of Digital Annealer technology can be installed in customer datacenters.

    The Digital Annealer is a core technology developed to accelerate digital innovation. With advanced technological capabilities refined through developing supercomputers, an abundant track record of systems integration, and engineers with expertise in such areas as consulting, systems engineering, and research and development, Fujitsu maintains its commitment to promote transformative technological innovations. Delivering the Digital Annealer solution to businesses in order to solve complex, large scale problems, Fujitsu is able to contribute to the evolution of customer operations and potentially new customer business models.

    Background

    Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. developed the Digital Annealer as a dedicated architecture for solving combinatorial optimization problems, which involve finding optimal solutions for real-world problems in which large numbers of potential combinations exist. In May of this year, Fujitsu Limited launched a cloud-based service using this architecture to solve problems of a scale that could be expressed in up to 1,024 bits. As it was necessary to improve the scale and precision of the technology in order to handle larger scale, more complex problems, Fujitsu developed the next generation Digital Annealing Unit (DAU), a dedicated processor for the Digital Annealer that makes use of ultra-high-density circuit integration technology refined through the development of high-performance processors. This breakthrough development has expanded the scale of the number of connections between bits from the current 1,024 to up to 8,192, and the coupling precision from 16 bits of gradation to a maximum of 64 bits, for 18.45 quintillion gradations. These enhanced performance specifications allow for the application of this technology to solve even larger scale problems - previously unsolvable, while also dramatically improving processing performance by a factor of 100 compared with the existing first generation of the Digital Annealer. With the next generation service, the Digital Annealer technology can be applied to more complex problems, including the optimization of production lines for entire factory floors, or drug discovery focused on intermediate-sized molecules.

    Features of the Service

    Customers will be able to use the second generation (maximum of 8,192 bits) Digital Annealer via the internet with Fujitsu's Digital Annealer Cloud Service, as well as the Digital Annealer On-Premises Service, through which servers are installed in customer datacenters for onsite usage.

    1. Provides world-class scale and precision with full bit intercoupling

    The Digital Annealer employs a fully coupled design that can handle the strength of all couplings between bits, and owing to that all 8,192 bit values are fully coupled and mutually interconnected. Moreover, because the strength of the coupling between bits can be expressed in detail with up to 64 bits, providing 18.45 quintillion gradations, the Digital Annealer can solve even large-scale, complex problems that cannot be solved by current Ising machines or quantum annealing machines.

    2. Stable operations due to digital circuitry

    The Digital Annealer employs digital circuitry in its design, and as a result operates stably at room temperature without specialized cooling equipment, and results will not be significantly impacted by noise.

    3. Automatic tuning mode option available

    Previously, applying the Digital Annealer to combinatorial optimization problems demanded expert knowledge and hours of work in order to determine control parameters most, appropriate for the problem. Now, by incorporating technology to automatically adjust control parameters based on results observed during the computation process, Fujitsu has created an automatic tuning function. This will enable customers to get solutions without adjusting Digital Annealer control parameters themselves.

    Future Plans

    Going forward, Fujitsu aims to provide support for even larger scale combinatorial optimization problems of up to 1 million bits through technologies like the problem segmentation technology(1) developed by Fujitsu Laboratories, thereby contributing to new business applications in a wide variety of fields, such as drug discovery, chemistry, transportation, finance, and logistics. In addition, Fujitsu plans to expand the use of the Digital Annealer in various regions, under the lead of Fujitsu Intelligence Technology, a new company developing Fujitsu's global AI business that began operations in Vancouver, Canada, in November 2018.

    Pricing and Availability

    Program milestone begins final phase of Type Certification for Japan's first commercial jet

    TOKYO, Dec 21, 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation announced today that it has received Type Inspection Authorization (TIA) from the Japanese Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB) for the company's Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) program.

    This authorization allows Mitsubishi Aircraft to begin certification flight tests for its MRJ 90, the industry's only clean sheet design, regional jet and the first commercial jet from Japan. The MRJ program currently has a fleet of flight test aircraft at its flight test center in Moses Lake, Washington, USA, and expects to begin certification flight testing early in 2019.

    "Throughout our program we have worked very closely with the JCAB to develop a well-defined set of processes, procedures and expectations that will take us to the type certification of our MRJ90," said Hisakazu Mizutani, Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation president. "It has been a long, but necessary journey for the development of our MRJ program and for the commercial aviation industry in Japan."

    According to Andrew Telesca, head of Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation's Certification Management Office, because of the unique situation of the commercial aviation industry in Japan, the path to receive this authorization has been unlike any other in the world.

    "With little precedence for a program of this type in Japan the teams have worked together tirelessly to establish a flight test compliance system from the ground up. I am proud of the substantial efforts made by the JCAB and MITAC teams to achieve this critical milestone. While much work remains to reach Type Certification, we're excited to have completed a key demonstration of the safety and maturity of the MRJ program and look forward to working closely with the JCAB during this critical final program phase," explains Telesca.

    Telesca also mentioned that the program is undergoing a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) safety review to support the FAA's Letter of Authorization, which he expects prior to the start of certification flight testing.

    Researchers are investigating ways to improve lipid extraction from microalgae to make biofuels. (Copyright: 123rf/Akhararat Wathanasing)
    Direct electrolysis has mixed results for extracting fuel sources from microalgae.

    Selangor, Malaysia, Dec 21, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - Researchers are investigating ways to improve biodiesel production by using electrical fields to break open microalgae cells, with varied results, according to a new study in the Pertanika Journal of Science & Technology.

    Lipids inside microalgae are a promising source of biofuel. Microalgae cells must first be broken apart in order to extract the lipids. Conventional technologies are energy intensive and time consuming, so a group of researchers from Universiti Malaysia Sabah investigated a novel method using direct electrolysis.

    During electrolysis, cells are disrupted when electric field forces overcome the interactions which hold membranes together, resulting in the formation of pores in the cell membrane. In this study, the researchers passed the microalga Chlorella sp. through electric fields of different strengths generated by two stainless steel electrodes. Electrolyzed cells were subsequently freeze-dried and treated with solvents to extract lipids.

    The amount of lipids extracted from cells that passed through low electric fields was the same as cells that did not go through electrolysis. In contrast, at high electric fields, 11% to 13% fewer lipids were extracted from electrolyzed cells than the untreated cells. The researchers hypothesized that the lipids may have been lost through oxidation during electrolysis.

    The researchers also investigated if solvents are required for lipid extraction of electrolyzed cells. Their analysis found that lipids were present only in the solvent extract, indicating that lipids cannot be extracted by electrolysis alone.

    Methyl palmitate - a fatty acid preferred for use in biodiesel engines, and methyl linolenate were the major components in the extracted lipid, with no significant difference in methyl palmitate concentration of electrolyzed and untreated samples. The researchers also observed that no intact cells remained after electrolysis. The findings indicate that while the direct electrolysis treatment was effective at disrupting microalgal cells, it did not significantly enhance lipid extraction efficiency.

    For the method to achieve the higher lipid yields reported in literature and be feasible for microalgal lipid extraction in biodiesel production, parameters such as field strength and solvent type should be optimized. Further investigation into the effect of oxidation on lipid loss is also required.
