Hoag Health System Selects PathAI and the AISight Image Management System to Support the Transition To Digital and AI-enabled Pathology

PathAI

PathAI, a leading precision pathology company, today announced that Hoag Health System, the leading health system in the southern California region, will adopt the AISight Image Management System (IMS) as their primary platform, powering their transition to digital pathology. The transition from analog, glass-slide-based pathology to digital pathology continues to accelerate across anatomic pathology, globally. This transition is in part driven by the availability of AI pathology tools that harness machine learning (ML) algorithms to augment and assist the pathologist interpretation. “The transition to digital pathology will unlock dramatic improvements in how care is provided to Hoag’s patients. By utilizing the most advanced image management system on the market with embedded algorithms, we expect to be able to deliver faster turnaround times to our physicians, more accurate and reproducible pathologist assessments, and expand our understanding of how biomarkers can drive optimal care decisions,” said Dr. Michael Brant-Zawadzki, MD, FACR, Hoag Vice President, Research Administration, CATALiST and Addiction. AISight 1 is a cloud-native intelligent enterprise workflow solution that is used by the world's leading laboratories and research centers to power their digital pathology workflows and AI applications. It serves as a central hub for case management, image management, and best-in-class artificial intelligence tools from PathAI and third-party partners, to enable a broad spectrum of histopathology use cases. “Together with our partners, we will continue to pursue our vision to improve patient outcomes with AI-powered technology,” said Eric Walk, MD, FCAP, Chief Medical Officer, PathAI. “We are excited to partner with forward-thinking industry leaders like Hoag who embrace the science of what machine learning algorithms can offer healthcare professionals and how those learnings can augment and empower the important work of pathologists.” According to Dr. John Cupp, MD, Director of Digital Pathology, Hoag Health System and PathAI Advisor, “Hoag is particularly excited to utilize PathAI’s ArtifactDetect algorithm that can improve pathology review, specifically to address pre-analytical factors that typically would delay pathologist review, as well as applying PathAI’s quantitative IHC scoring algorithms to support complex interpretation in PDL1 and HER2.” Importantly, PathAI will collaborate with Hoag and their laboratory information system (LIS) provider to build a bi-directional integration between AISight and their Epic Beaker LIS instance to ensure a fully integrated pathologist experience. “Computational pathology promises to unlock great potential for predictive biomarkers for patients with cancer,” said Dr. David R. Braxton, MD, Chief of Molecular Pathology Services, Hoag Family Cancer Institute. “This is an exciting next step in Hoag’s digital transformation as we continue to look ahead towards healthcare innovations that offer continual advancements in patient care, treatment efficacy, and overall public health outcomes.” 1 AISight is For Research Use Only.

Meme Coin Mania Is Back! These Memecoins Are Fuelling the Crypto Boom

Kangamoon

Meme coins are surging in value, and could fuel the next market run, and boom within the crypto sphere. However, there are many meme coins to choose from, so knowing how to diversify is essential in order to get the best possible returns out of the market. Three meme coins have stood out the most as of recently, including Shiba Inu (SHIB), Floki (FLOKI) and KangaMoon (KANG). Today, we will be conducting an in-depth analysis of each one to determine just how far they can rise, and to see what kind of returns investors can expect. By the end, we will determine which is one of the best meme coins to invest in during 2024. Shiba Inu (SHIB) Grows 164.5% – Can This Meme Coin Climb Further? Shiba Inu (SHIB) has been dominating the chart as a top-growth meme coin as of recently, as it managed to experience a year-to-date (YTD) climb of 164.5%. Moreover, within the span of a single week, the Shiba Inu price has gone up from a low point of $0.00002107 to a maximum value point at $0.00002762, which has positioned it as a major player with a 15.3% growth. Its spike has not stopped, as if it gathers further bullish attention, the Shiba Inu crypto could soon experience major price gains. Based on the Shiba Inu price prediction, it is projected that it can spike to a maximum point of value at $0.000058 by the end of 2024. Floki (FLOKI) Spikes 516.4% YTD – Is the Rise Over? Floki (FLOKI) has experienced a notable price uptrend as well, as its year-to-date (YTD) climb was by 516.4%. At this rate of growth, it is bound to essentially fuel the next crypto boom, especially as the Floki crypto has not stopped its growth even in the short-term. Specifically, according to the on-chart metrics, the Floki price has grown from a low point at $0.00013 to a maximum value of $0.000179. As a result, market sentiment is bullish on this memecoin, and while it's up 11.3% during the past week, according to the Floki price prediction, it can end 2024 at $0.000216. KangaMoon (KANG) Rises 290% and Has Over 20K Holders Fueled by Social-Fi Elements KangaMoon (KANG) has already seen over 20,000 registered users, and its native token is a part of the crypto wallets of over 5,800 holders as-well. Moreover, the presale has raised over $5 million and by the end of April, can pass the $6 million raised mark fueled by the massive level of interest and the massive KANG growth potential. Just during the past trading session, KANG spiked from $0.005 to $0.0196, rising by 290% and now at Stage 5 of its presale, is seeing rapid momentum. The key catalyst for this growth is its unique fuse of Play-to-Earn (P2E) elements, with a focus on the community, and Social-Fi elements. These aspects differentiate this meme coin from most competitors, as it features vast utility as a result of this. KANG is one of the memecoins that will enable anyone the opportunity to buy items, level up characters within the P2E game, and access the dedicated marketplace in which they can buy, sell or trade NFTs. As a result, sentiment is bullish and analysts project that it can spike to $0.5 by the end of Q2, 2024, making it one of the best meme coins to invest in. Summary It's clear that both Floki and Shiba Inu are dominant forces within the meme coin space, and 2024 has also been a bullish year for them. But many traders, investors and enthusiasts have begun turning their attention to the blockchain ICO of KangaMoon as it can redefine the meme coin space and even become a part of the major P2E gaming industry, expected to reach $885 million by 2028, making it the hottest project to jump into.

Amplifier Security emerges from stealth to bridge divide between the workforce and security with AI copilot and human-in-the-loop automation

Amplifier Security

Security teams rely on an ever-growing stack of security tools to keep their organization safe. Yet, coverage gaps and alerts across these tools do not get proper and timely attention because of the difficulty engaging company employees busy with their daily work to fix them. Today, Amplifier Security has launched from stealth with a $3.3m investment and the industry’s first AI-powered human-in-the-loop automation and security copilot that connects the dots between an organization’s existing security stack and their people. The pre-seed funding round was led by Cota Capital with participation from WestWave Capital and Shift Left Ventures, and included angel investments from industry luminaries and founders of Slack, MobileIron, Centrify, PeopleNet, Skyflow and Mercury. Enforcing security controls through automation gets pushback from users whose work is disrupted, for example, when a security patch update forces a system reboot during a critical workstream. Triaging security tool alerts means closing the loop with the end user to determine true versus false positives before taking disruptive actions - a truly burdensome process for everyone. Security teams do their best to navigate this complex situation — but it often leads to a strained relationship with the workforce. The Amplifier Security solution extends the value and effectiveness of existing security tools by empowering the entire company to work together towards a much faster response time that dramatically increases the security health and culture of an organization. Amplifier provides an engagement layer between existing security tools and the workforce through Ampy - a trusted copilot that acts as an AI security buddy who helps employees understand the risk they are creating for the organization and solves their security issues while balancing their productivity. Building on the experiences people are used to, for example with credit card companies verifying suspicious transactions, Ampy engages with employees, guiding them through security protocols based on real-time insights. This approach not only speeds up response times but also significantly boosts an organization's security posture by involving employees directly in the security process. Amplifier integrates with and enhances the effectiveness of existing deployed tools like identity security, MFA, endpoint security, vulnerability scanning and management, SaaS and cloud security, SIEM and security training; and makes adaptive human protection a reality for organizations. Ampy is backed by Amplifier’s human-in-the-loop automation platform, composed of a security data fabric, security hub and engagement studio. The platform integrates into all corporate security tools and normalizes data across those tools to contextualize and prioritize security risks and vulnerabilities. It then helps organizations translate those findings into actionable remediation engagements through Ampy. Amplifier helps every CISO, departmental leaders and individuals understand their security posture through intuitive personalized health scores and dashboards. It enables security teams with enforcement of 100% security tooling coverage across every employee and offloads countless hours of manual work to correlate data in spreadsheets, chasing down employees to triage alerts, getting users to maintain their security hygiene. Cal Henderson, co-founder of Slack: “The way we operated our corporate security engineering program closely aligns with the design principles at the core of Amplifier Security's vision. I’m a firm believer that engaging the workforce for security automation with a productivity platform like Slack is the only modern way to solve today’s dynamic cybersecurity threat landscape.” Amplifier Security was founded by Shreyas Sadalgi, CEO and Thomas Donnelly, CTO and President, who both have two decades of experience in enterprise security, IT and automation. Donnelly is a three-time CISO and CIO with over a decade of experience leveraging human-centric approaches and technology that transformed security in organizations. He firmly believes that in today’s dynamic and decentralized workplaces, CISOs need to completely rethink how their teams operate by allowing users to self heal their own security issues. Rather than security operating in the background and interrupting employee productivity at inopportune times, Amplifier delivers an incredible user experience that drives everyone in the workforce to participate in their own security. “There is a massive gap in the market that is preventing security practitioners from being successful. Most security tools aren’t built to engage users, as they’re always meant to work in the background.” said CEO and co-founder, Shreyas Sadalgi “Amplifier flips the script by engaging employees on behalf of all security tools in a more human-friendly way, where every end-user interaction is a two-way conversation with the right tonality, context, empathy and actionable information based on the security finding and the user role. Our vision is to shift the cybersecurity focus to include both technology and the people who use it, creating a balanced and more secure environment for businesses.” Gaurav Manglik, Partner at WestWave Capital commented: “The lack of human engagement in security automation is a missed opportunity to educate people on the why behind the risk of each security finding. Because of today’s hybrid and dynamic workplaces where everyone is moving fast in the spirit of hyperproductivity, this problem has become harder to solve at scale. After assessing the market for many years, Amplifier has done the best execution we’ve seen from a product and team perspective thus far.” Aditya Singh, Partner at Cota Capital added: “Security is fundamentally about both people and technology, yet the industry has largely built security tools focused solely on the technology element. Everyone knows that when it comes to cybersecurity in workplaces, engaging humans is the biggest opportunity. Amplifier answers the bell with its unique human-in-the-loop solution. We believe they are uniquely positioned to turn this trend into a movement that forward-thinking CISOs will embrace so that they can more efficiently and effectively manage enterprise security.” Amplifier has been engaged with security teams at over 15 companies as its marquee design partners; many who have been using its product in private betas and seeing daily value — hours saved every week toiling in spreadsheets, quick identification of tooling gaps in their environments, and the ability to self-heal common security issues. “Most organizations haven’t significantly changed their approach to threat management – keeping the old silos between those responsible for security monitoring and those responding to the rest of the employee base.” said Steve Mancini, Head of Security at Guardant Health. “Security teams can no longer operate this way. Security has to be embedded in every function, and that means empowering all employees to participate in security. Even with all the security automations, our employees are the best sensors of the unusual or anomalous at every level of our business. They enable us to quickly get context when we notice suspicious behavior and identify incidents faster based on their proactive observations.” Shawn Bass, ex-CTO, VMware End User Computing: “Most often humans in the workforce are not intentionally violating security practices maliciously. Often they're just trying to be as productive as possible and sometimes the Security and IT operations best practices are perceived to be getting in the way of that. Security teams struggle to solve these last mile problems because of the highly nuanced and manual effort it takes to loop in their workforce to fix tooling related problems. Amplifier is innovating on this hard unsolved problem, by empowering humans to participate and collaborate with security teams to triage and fix issues, all while having great productivity.” About Amplifier Security Amplifier Security enables companies to harness the power of AI and their workforce to secure their business. Its flagship product, Amplifier, is the industry’s first AI-powered human-in-the-loop automation and security copilot that connects the dots between your people and your existing security tools, so you can quickly address the most critical issues without harming productivity. With Amplifier, security and IT teams can gain a comprehensive understanding of their security health and collaborate with end users to enforce controls — leading to a faster response time that dramatically increases the security posture and culture of an organization. Amplifier is crafted with ♥️ in Atlanta and San Francisco.

Shareholder to Return to Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting One Year After Arrest in Omaha

NLPC

As the annual meeting for Berkshire Hathaway Inc. on May 4 in Omaha approaches, National Legal and Policy Center Chairman Peter Flaherty plans a return to the same stage where last year, while presenting NLPC’s shareholder proposal, Warren Buffett cut off his speech and Flaherty was arrested. Trumped-up charges against Flaherty were later dropped. NLPC has another proposal on Berkshire’s 2024 proxy statement and Flaherty is scheduled to speak on the measure for his allotted five minutes. The nonprofit corporate watchdog released a short video that briefly recounts last year’s incident and points out Mr. Buffett’s contradictory positions on how he manages shareholder meetings. The video may be found on NLPC’s website: https://nlpc.org/corporate-integrity-project/video-nlpc-returns-to-berkshire-hathaway-annual-meeting-one-year-after-chairmans-arrest/ The video highlights a past statement Mr. Buffett made to CNBC. Responding to an interviewer’s question about Berkshire allowing investors who attend the popular annual meeting to ask any question they want, Mr. Buffett responded, “We’ve got a partnership feeling toward the people who have given us their money, and we don’t screen ‘em, and they can ask whatever’s on their mind.” However, last year Mr. Buffett made an exception to that principle when Peter Flaherty – during his official remarks presenting NLPC’s shareholder proposal, which was on the meeting agenda – brought up Mr. Buffett’s relationship with billionaire Bill Gates, their shared philanthropic efforts, and Mr. Gates’s troubling relationship with deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. At that point, Flaherty’s microphone was silenced, and security and Omaha law enforcement forcibly walked him out of the arena and to a local police precinct, where he was arrested, booked, fingerprinted and held for about three hours. As NLPC argued last year in a report to the Securities and Exchange Commission, Berkshire’s identity is inextricably linked with Mr. Buffett’s. As such, his philanthropic activities and personal associations are fair targets for criticism, unlike those of nearly any other corporate Chairman/CEO. NLPC also filed a complaint with the SEC late last year over Berkshire’s inappropriate treatment of Flaherty at the meeting. “Warren Buffett boasts that shareholders can ask questions on any topic they desire, but I guess that doesn’t include questions about Bill Gates or Jeffrey Epstein,” Flaherty said. This year’s shareholder proposal addresses concerns about Berkshire’s risk vulnerabilities over the amount its sales and supply chain depend on China. Subsidiaries such as Duracell and Fruit of the Loom, and significant investments such as Apple and Coca-Cola, substantially depend on access to the communist nation. NLPC also filed a proxy memo with the SEC in support of this year’s proposal. The video released by NLPC concludes by wondering if Mr. Buffett will keep his word, and let all Berkshire investors say “whatever is on their mind.” For more information or to schedule an interview with Paul Chesser, contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or drene@nlpc.org.

Airport security isn’t as tight as you might think. According to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), there have been at least 300 instances of people bypassing parts of airport security since March 2023. 1 In November, two women faced arrest at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport after breaching a secured exit due to running late for their flight. Meanwhile, at Palm Springs International Airport in February, a ticketed traveler passed through an unstaffed body scanner, prompting authorities to evacuate post-security areas as a precautionary measure. In a separate incident in February, a woman managed to bypass TSA officers who check IDs at Nashville International Airport. She then proceeded to sneak into the bag-screening line. After her belongings passed through the X-ray, she boarded an American Airlines flight without a ticket, eventually flying to Los Angeles International Airport where she was detained by the FBI. As of now, she has not faced charges, with the FBI refraining from commenting on an ongoing investigation. Clear, a private screening service offering an expedited alternative to TSA queues, has also faced scrutiny due to breaches in the past two years. 2 In one instance last year, an individual managed to pass Clear security using a boarding pass retrieved from an airport garbage can. Another incident in 2022 involved TSA officers identifying ammunition in a man's luggage, only to discover that he had utilized false identification to bypass Clear screening. These security concerns are coming to light at a time when the TSA is investing in heightened security measures, including a $3.8 million contract with AI security company Liberty Defense Holdings (TSXV:SCAN) (OTCQB:LDDFF) for its multi-technology security solutions for detecting concealed weapons in high-traffic areas such as airports, stadiums, and schools. This contract focuses on Research and Development to provide the TSA with software, engineering, and enhancements to Liberty Defense ’s High-Definition Advanced Imaging Technology (HD-AIT) Wideband Upgrade Kit to improve detection capabilities and enhance the passenger experience. Better Safety for Today’s Threats Liberty Defense has also begun deploying its HEXWAVE™ system at North American airports to improve screening for passengers and staff, including Denver International, Toronto Pearson, and one unit to the TSA under its On-Person Screening Capability Program for the screening of Aviation Workers. The HEXWAVE™ system uses AI, electromagnetic waves, and 3D imaging to scan and detect potentially dangerous items like metal, 3D-printed plastic guns, powders, and liquids. The process is quick and contactless, allowing individuals to walk through a portal without removing their keys or cell phones. On April 23, Liberty Defense Holdings (TSXV:SCAN) (OTCQB:LDDFF) announced international shipments of HEXWAVE™ to the Subic Bay Airport in the Philippines and to Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Liberty Defense (TSXV:SCAN) (OTCQB:LDDFF) has already made sales in Europe 3 and Asia, 4 with more international deals coming down the pipeline thanks to the company’s robust international distribution network, which is facilitated by two prominent partners in the security and detection industry. With global offices and representation across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, these partners have deployed thousands of security systems. HEXWAVE perfectly complements the requirements for on-person screening in these locations. Earlier this year, Liberty Defense announced a strategic agreement with Viken Detection to sell 30 HEXWAVE units in 2024. The agreement includes an upfront payment for the first 15 units to accelerate market penetration. Viken Detection, a global leader in threat detection and screening technologies, will incorporate the HEXWAVE walkthrough people screening system into its product portfolio for the Americas. Liberty Defense has been awarded the 2023 'ASTORS' Homeland Security Award from American Security Today (AST) for its HEXWAVE system. It was honored with the Gold ASTORS Award in the Best Metal/Weapons Detection Solution category. The 'ASTORS' Awards Program recognizes industry leaders in physical and border security, cybersecurity, emergency preparedness, law enforcement, and first responders, as well as government agencies at all levels for their efforts to enhance national security.
