    Galpin Ford first to sell RPlate in California; RConnect cloud platform launches, makes registration renewals and personalization easy to implement.

    DETROIT (PRWEB) January 16, 2018

    Reviver Auto, creator of the world’s first digital license plate, today announced that 100,000 RPlate Pros will hit roads in 2018 and Galpin Ford, the number one Ford dealer in the world, is among the first to sell the RPlate to consumers in California.

    The RPlate Pro, the latest iteration of the company’s digital license plate, was unveiled today at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) (Reviver Auto’s press conference will be held on Tuesday, January 16th from 3:05pm - 3:25pm ET at the Atrium Stage. Click here to view the livestream or an archive of the press conference). Featuring a sleek display that integrates beautifully with today’s – and tomorrow’s – vehicle styles, the RPlate Pro creates new functionalities and efficiencies for consumers and businesses alike. The digital plate is in use in California and in pilot in Arizona. Legislation is approved for pilots in Texas and Florida – with more states to be announced this year.

    “The license plate has not changed since Henry Ford debuted the Model T in 1908. Today, 110 years later, change finally hits the road as the RPlate Pro launches into one of the largest vehicle markets, and most technologically progressive landscapes, in the world, with more to follow,” said Neville Boston, CEO of Reviver Auto. “We are proud that the incredibly innovative Galpin Motors is the very first of what will be many customers across the US who will help us bring our mission of greater connectivity and efficiencies to tens of thousands of vehicle owners and businesses.”

    “When I saw the digital license plate from Reviver Auto, I thought it was absolutely awesome!” said Beau Boeckmann, President and COO of Galpin Motors of North Hills, CA. “Galpin has a long history of industry firsts and innovation, all revolving around better serving our customers. So, when we saw this digital license plate, it was natural for us to jump in! We are looking forward to providing Galpin customers another industry first.”

    The RPlate Pro transforms the stamped metal license plate into an integrated, elegant digital display that functions as a legal license plate, while adding new digital communications facilitated through RConnect, a browser-based management system that was also unveiled today at NAIAS.

    Among the functionalities RConnect makes possible for consumers are automated DMV renewals - replacing legacy stickers and onerous paperwork with digital decals; implementation of charity plates in support of a favorite cause[1] and the display of DMV-approved personal messages like “Don’t Drink and Drive” or “My Child is an Honor Student.” Cost-cutting benefits for businesses include streamlined vehicle registration renewals and easily tracked registration compliance across vehicle fleets, as well as the ability to create customized marketing messages that appear on the plate when parked.

    Reviver Auto’s RPlate Pro can be seen in booth #MS06 at The Detroit Auto Show’s Automobili-D showcase. A video of the press conference can be viewed here.

    About Reviver Auto

    Reviver Auto’s mission is to bring new and far-reaching efficiencies, revolutionary marketing, and unprecedented connectivity to the auto industry through disruptive technology. With its RPlate™, the company has completely reinvented the 125-year-old stamped metal license plate into a connected car platform that digitizes and automates the costly, often frustrating and time-consuming DMV renewal process. Approved by multiple DMVs and DOTs, the RPlate also provides telematics functionality and brings a new level of personalization to existing license plates.

    Preparis, an all-in-one business continuity, life safety, and emergency messaging company, is proud to announce that Wade Tucker, Chief Sales Officer, was interviewed for Bluelock’s 2018 Legal Technology Predictions eBook.

    ATLANTA (PRWEB) January 16, 2018

    Preparis, an all-in-one business continuity, life safety, and emergency messaging company, is proud to announce that Wade Tucker, Chief Sales Officer, was interviewed for Bluelock’s 2018 Legal Technology Predictions eBook.

    Bluelock, a provider of Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service, predicts, “The legal industry will face new demands in 2018, both from inside and outside the firm, and adaptation is key to stay competitive.”

    Bluelock’s eBook was created, “to help firms face these new demands by forecasting what to expect in 2018.” Tucker’s forecast is featured within the compliance & regulations category, but the eBook comprises professionals’ predictions in several categories including: operations, cybersecurity, compliance & regulations, business continuity & disaster recovery, artificial intelligence, workforce, and major technology disruptions.

    Tucker warns that, “2018 will bring an increase in the amount of cyberattacks in the legal industry, which will drive the number of cyber audits even higher.”

    With larger and more impactful cyber-attacks increasing at a steady rate – a 17% increase from the previous year – companies like Preparis emphasize, regardless of the size of the firm, the importance of taking the necessary precautions to prevent and prepare for an attack. Tucker offers 4 key initiatives every firm should implement in order to avoid a cyberattack: schedule quarterly penetration tests on your network, monthly vulnerability scans, get an incident response plan, and train on your plan.

    “These four initiatives are incredibly important and should not be overlooked when considering and implementing cybersecurity plans,” says Tucker. “You don’t want what happened to Equifax, Uber, or Whole Foods to happen to your firm,” concluded Tucker.

    DataMaster has released the most advanced update to its data import software for appraisers in 16 years. DataMaster now includes MLS photos, the ability to make quality and condition and location and view decisions within DataMaster, and much more.

    LAYTON, Utah (PRWEB) January 16, 2018

    DataMaster, the gold standard for MLS and public record data import has released the most advanced update to its platform in its history. Built new from the ground up, DataMaster 6 allows the appraiser to be in total control the data. DataMaster 6 allows all of the data in the MLS to be available to the appraiser in the Sales Comparison grid, including all the MLS photos.

    DataMaster 6 is much more than a simple software update; it represents a major step forward in empowering appraisers and their workflows and builds on DataMaster's tradition of providing complete MLS and public record data to appraisers.

    "I have been using the new DataMaster beta version for several months now, and it is remarkable!" said Matthew Meyer, Owner, Meyer Appraisals of Portland, Oregon, "New features, easier customization, quick learning curve and more flexibility designed specifically for appraiser needs. Completing an appraisal without DataMaster is painstaking. I can't survive without it."

    DataMaster 6 empowers appraisers to

    • Choose between MLS, public record or other data sources
    • Determine location and view and quality and condition within DataMaster
    • View all MLS property photos
    • Utilize DataMaster's exclusive digital MLS listing sheet

    • And much more

    "Because of DataMaster’s licensing agreements with MLSs across the United States, DataMaster has access to the backend database for each MLS. Those agreements give us access to all the pertinent information in the MLS and DataMaster 6 allows us to present that information in a way that is beneficial to the appraiser. DataMaster 6 allows us to collect information from multiple sources including RETS databases, public records, and others. These sources contain much of the property data real estate professionals rely on and regard as the backbone of their organizations." says Kevin White, President, and CEO of DataMaster, "Our unmatched access to data allows us to utilize our patent for importing data from multiple sources and format it for compliance."

    DataMaster 6 was built with appraisers in mind, giving them the tools to save time and use their individual experience and competencies to play an integral part in the property purchase process.

    New center focuses on artificial intelligence for autonomous systems

    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (PRWEB) January 16, 2018

    Purdue University will lead a new national center to develop brain-inspired computing for intelligent autonomous systems such as drones and personal robots capable of operating without human intervention.

    The Center for Brain-inspired Computing Enabling Autonomous Intelligence, or C-BRIC, is a five-year project supported by $27 million in funding from the Semiconductor Research Corp. (SRC) via its Joint University Microelectronics Program, which provides funding from a consortium of industrial sponsors as well as from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. The SRC operates research programs in the United States and globally that connect industry to university researchers, deliver early results to enable technological advances, and prepare a highly-trained workforce for the semiconductor industry. Additional funds include $3.96 million from Purdue and support from participating universities, pending final contracts, which include: Arizona State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Pennsylvania State University, Portland State University, Princeton University, University of Pennsylvania, and the University of Southern California At the state level, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation will be providing funds, pending board approval, to establish an intelligent autonomous systems laboratory at Purdue.

    C-BRIC, which begins operating in January 2018, will be led by Kaushik Roy, Purdue’s Edward G. Tiedemann Jr. Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), with Anand Raghunathan, Purdue professor of ECE, as associate director. Other Purdue faculty involved in the center include Suresh Jagannathan, professor of computer science and ECE; and Eugenio Culurciello, associate professor of biomedical engineering, ECE and mechanical engineering.

    “The center’s goal is to develop neuro-inspired algorithms, architectures and circuits for perception, reasoning and decision-making, which today’s standard computing is unable to do efficiently,” Roy said.

    Efficiency here implies energy use. For example, while advanced computers such as IBM’s Watson and Google’s AlphaGo have beaten humans at high-level cognitive tasks, they also consume hundreds of thousands of watts of power to do so, whereas the human brain requires only around 20 watts.

    “We have to narrow this huge efficiency gap to enable continued improvements in artificial intelligence in the face of diminishing benefits from technology scaling,” Raghunathan said. “C-BRIC will develop technologies to perform brain-like functions with brain-like efficiency.”

    In addition, the center will enable next-generation autonomous intelligent systems capable of accomplishing both “end-to-end” functions and completion of mission-critical tasks without human intervention.

    “Autonomous intelligent systems will require real-time closed-loop control, leading to new challenges in computational efficiency and robustness,” said Venkataramanan (Ragu) Balakrishnan, Purdue’s Michael and Katherine Birck Head and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. “Purdue’s long history of preeminence in related research areas such as neuromorphic computing and energy-efficient electronics positions us well to lead this effort.”

    The center will involve about 17 faculty and around 85 graduate students and postdoctoral researchers across the universities.

    “Purdue is up to the considerable challenges that will be posed by C-BRIC,” said Suresh Garimella, Purdue's executive vice president for research and partnerships and the R. Eugene and Susie E. Goodson Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering. “We are excited that our faculty and students are embarking on this ambitious mission to shape the future of intelligent autonomous systems.”

    Mung Chiang, Purdue’s John A. Edwardson Dean of the College of Engineering, said, “C-BRIC represents a game-changer in artificial intelligence. These outstanding colleagues in electrical and computer engineering and other departments at Purdue will carry out transformational research on efficient, distributed intelligence.”

    To achieve their goals, C-BRIC researchers will improve the theoretical and mathematical underpinnings of neuro-inspired algorithms.

    “This is very important,” Raghunathan said. “The underlying theory of brain-inspired computing needs to be better worked out, and we believe this will lead to broader applicability and improved robustness.”

    At the same time, new autonomous systems will have to possess “distributed intelligence” that allows various parts, such as the multitude of “edge devices” in the so-called Internet of Things, to work together seamlessly.

    “We are excited to bring together a multi-disciplinary team with expertise spanning algorithms, theory, hardware and system-building, that will enable us to pursue a holistic approach to brain-inspired computing, and to hopefully deliver an efficiency closer to that of the brain,” Roy said.
