DETROIT – As ShotSpotter becomes more controversial, Detroit police show more enthusiasm about the technology.On Sunday, a local man fired his gun four times at his brother, and police say that the ShotSpotter picked up the gunshots and sent alerts to officers nearby. The alerts came to DPD before anyone called 911, and police arrived at the scene two minutes before someone talked to a dispatcher about the gunshots.Read more: Detroit mayor pushes for ShotSpotter after Sunday’s random shootingsBecause the ShotSpotter picked up the location of where the shots rang out, police could see the gunman running from the scene and helped the victim as soon as possible.AdShotSpotter is being used in two police precincts, and Detroit police want a $7 million expansion of the program.

Polyplastics’ New 3D Printing Technology for DURACON (R) POM Accelerates Product Development Cycle

TOKYO, Sept. 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Polyplastics Co., Ltd., a leading global supplier of engineering thermoplastics, has developed three-dimensional (3D) printing technology for production of DURACON (R) polyoxymethylene (POM) products. The technology, known as Material Extrusion (MEX), delivers physical properties close to those of injection-molded articles despite being 3D-printed. Polyplastics will highlight the new 3D printing technology at the upcoming K 2022 exhibition (Hall 7A/B02) which runs October 19-26 in Duesseldorf, Germany.

SEAS, Ford host talk on carbon technology research, climate justice policies with Benjamin K. Sovacool

Benjamin K. Sovacool, professor of earth and environment at Boston University, spoke at a climate justice event at the Dana Samuel Trask Building on Friday to discuss his work on social inequities in the transition to low-carbon energy sources and recommend several policy initiatives to reduce them. The event, which was jointly hosted by The School for Environment and Sustainability and the School of Public Policy, began with Sovacool highlighting a study he worked on to understand the disparate effects of four prominent low-carbon technologies: clean cookstoves, food-sharing, electric vehicles and solar panels.  The study found that all four technologies perpetuated social inequities across racial, class and gender lines, as well as across geography and generations and betwee...

Why we need a technology renovation, not a rebuild

The priorities in digital transformation need to rest upon technology renovation, as the industry is placing too strong a focus on the shiny and new Andy Lethbridge at BAE Systems Digital Intelligence explains why it’s often better to build on what is already in place, looking at technology renovation rather than new digital innovation. Digital transformation has become an overused term – a silver bullet for making things better and justifying business cases. But my experience tells me that it frequently comes at a cost that could be avoided. The irony is that digital transformation – the shiny and the new – is seen as an easier path than evolution should be lost on no one. In central government especially, history tells us that new isn’t always better. The new normal New is al...

Call for UK’s biggest police force to stop using facial recognition technology

Fourteen campaign groups have written an open letter to new Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Mark Rowley calling on him to end the use of facial recognition technology.Organisations including Big Brother Watch, Liberty and Black Lives Matter UK contacted the new force leader on his first day in the job to demand an end to the “privacy-eroding, inaccurate and wasteful technology”.They claim that 87% of the alerts generated by the force’s systems are misidentifications, including a 14-year-old black schoolboy in uniform, and a French exchange student who had only been in the country for a few days.Sir Mark Rowley begins his new job as Metropolitan Police Commissioner on Monday (Victoria Jones/PA)The force uses a different way of calculating false alerts using the proportion of all peo...

Technology start-ups must look beyond scale

For years, anyone seeking a role model for successful businesses could look to the world of tech and fintech. Companies such as “buy now, pay later” pioneer Klarna — once Europe’s most valuable private tech company — commanded vast valuations, with investors funnelling money into their growth.But as inflation rises fast and the macroeconomic environment sours, unprofitable companies with an emphasis on simply building consumer numbers are looking increasingly exposed. Klarna’s valuation fell from $46bn to less than $7bn in a funding round this summer.For business students who have come of age in a time of “disrupters”, the lessons should be clear. The age of easy money is over, and growth at all costs is no longer a mantra that makes sense. The tech companies that dominate the fu...
