24-hour real-time payments are often credited to Venmos and PayPal around the world. But next year, the nationwide introduction of the Federal Reserve’s FedNowSM service will provide 24/7/365 availability of funds to help all types of financial institutions go beyond use cases. person-to-person (P2P) that FinTechs have popularized.

The FedNow service will expand access to instant payments functionality and use cases by clearing and settling payments between financial institutions 24 hours a day, every day, in a primary Federal Reserve Bank account. This always-on instant payment functionality also reduces interbank credit risk and liquidity risk for participating institutions, increasing the appeal of current and new use cases.

Boston Fed Senior Vice President and FedNow Service Chief Commercial Officer Nick Stanescu recently spoke with Karen Webster about his organization’s progress with the FedNow pilot program, which began with a feedback and feedback phase at the early 2021 and recently moved into an operational, pre-launch phase.

“During the first few weeks of our first phase of testing, several pilot organizations successfully connected and sent test messages on the pilot version of the FedNow service,” Stanescu said, “including small and large banks and some of the biggest service providers”.

FIS, Jack Henry and Fiserv, among other companies, have already connected and are beginning to test the messages. More than 120 organizations are part of the FedNow pilot program, including Square Financial Services, other FinTechs and processors.

The main areas of pilot interest and feedback center on integration, operational controls, documentation and the most important attributes needed in the ISO 20022 message format, Stanescu said.

The use of ISO 20022, a global standard for payment message specifications, was a strategic decision in the creation of the FedNow service and a basis for broad interoperability in the national ecosystem and across borders at the coming. The FedNow service will leverage the FedLine network for secure connectivity, which today connects 7,000 financial institutions and processors to the Fed’s critical payment and information infrastructure, services and applications, such as ACH , Wire Payments and Federal Reserve Accounts.

Evolution

Initial use cases for instant payments powered by the FedNow service noted by Stanescu include account-to-account (A2A) transactions, digital bill presentment and payment, and disbursements for insurance claims and other online payments. timely. Underlying these latest use cases is a much-requested feature of the FedNow service called Request for Payment, or RFP.

“Payment demand is absolutely fundamental to our instant payments value proposition,” Stanescu said of the FedNow service.

Common themes among FinTechs and financial institutions (FIs) are that the FedNow service will improve their ability to serve businesses and consumers who are increasingly pushing to ensure their payments are faster – and so fast that they are instantaneous.

“We are seeing huge demand,” Stanescu told Webster. This claim is backed up by a recent Federal Reserve survey which found that nine out of 10 companies expect to be able to initiate and receive payments faster by 2023 and that many are ready to do so now. Another recent survey found strong demand for faster payment options to accommodate consumers always-on digital lives.

Of course, instant payments go further than faster payments due to immediate settlement and near real-time availability of funds to the recipient. “You send me money and I can immediately see it’s in my bank account,” Stanescu said.

Look forward

“We take a phased approach to delivering the FedNow service,” he said, “so we can expand functionality over time and meet changing industry needs.”

Not just for consumer use cases – instant settlement can make a difference in the enterprise sector as well. For example, instant bill payment can be of immeasurable benefit to businesses that want to pay suppliers in real time, get paid in real time, and operate more efficiently by matching funds to the correct invoice. “These features will improve efficiency and cash flow,” he said.

Ultimately, the FedNow service will serve as a platform for financial institutions, processors and FinTechs to develop new innovative services. Stanescu expects to see a natural migration of payments between ACH and wireline rails and FedNow over time.

“We are also very likely to see new types of payments as we continue to move away from cash,” he said, which could increase overall payment volumes. Early feedback indicates that payroll may be an early adoption use case, as pay-as-you-go models place fewer demands on batch processes.

Fighting Bad Actors

Conventional wisdom holds that with faster funds comes the threat of faster fraud. Webster raised concerns that when consumers initiate payments, those instant transactions may not reach the correct recipient.

“It’s something I hear a lot about when I talk to the industry,” Stanescu said, but he cited a “strong set of controls and multi-layered capabilities” in the initial release of the FedNow service to support fraud management, risk mitigation and assistance. IFs as they fight bad actors.

FedNow service features will help participating financial institutions investigate and refund funds related to fraud and error. Beyond mitigating fraud through service design, Stanescu noted that the Fed is exploring opportunities to collaborate with industry on consumer education and awareness programs to help identify and prevent scams and to promote strong registration and authentication processes. In the meantime, the value proposition inherent in irrevocability remains intact: recipients have protection and a guarantee that the correct funds have reached their account and can be used immediately.

As more FIs adopt the FedNow service, a positive network effect should emerge, driven in part by the Overview of FedNow Service Providers that can help banks and other businesses – including challengers and digital-only businesses – flesh out their end-to-end visions for new and faster payments.

“We don’t just ‘push’ information to pilot participants, but we also pull it back, so we can make sure the FedNow service evolves and we all stay on top of user needs,” Stanescu said.

State shows ‘worrying’ maps of fuel contamination plume from Red Hill spills https://luxembourgglobe.com/state-shows-worrying-maps-of-fuel-contamination-plume-from-red-hill-spills/ Sat, 14 May 2022 03:34:00 +0000 https://luxembourgglobe.com/state-shows-worrying-maps-of-fuel-contamination-plume-from-red-hill-spills/ HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) — Six months after the Navy’s contaminated water crisis became public knowledge, the state has released new maps showing the movement of contamination underground.

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) — Six months after the Navy’s contaminated water crisis became public knowledge, the state has released new maps showing the movement of contamination underground.

For the first time, the public is seeing Department of Health maps of the oil contamination plume based on Navy data. It shows the plume before last year’s fuel spills, at the height of last year’s spill, and what it looks like today.

“I was shocked, speechless just to see the extent of the contamination and how severe it was, it was really quite surprising,” said Marti Townsend, former manager of the Sierra Club of Hawaii.

“The contamination of the water supply existed before November 2021, it persists now and while the intensity has subsided, it is clear that the plume is spreading westwards,” she added.

DOH <a class=maps show the contamination plume.” height=”185″ src=”https://gray-khnl-prod.cdn.arcpublishing.com/resizer/Aog00_Pc7Mw3ZpdVJR5KjmYit0M=/980×0/smart/filters:quality(85)/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/gray/YTPN5YRYUBGTHBEKNJZLIUV5DY.PNG” width=”980″/>

At a fuel tank advisory committee convened by the state Department of Health, Water Supply Director and Chief Engineer Ernie Lau said he found the cards “disturbing and worrying”.

“Generally what I see from these is that there seems to be a westerly movement of the contaminant plume that looks like it’s going to cross Halawa Valley Road, isn’t it,” said Lau asked.

“The charted data certainly indicates that, particularly the monitoring of Well 12, the one outside of Red Hill Navy property, is basically our sentinel well now and it’s shown the effects that you were saying,” said said Fenix ​​Grange, who is with the health department. Risk assessment and emergency response.

The agency says the plume at the moment appears to be stable and contracting. The polluted area no longer supplies any water system. The Navy says that after rinsing and filtering, the water is safe to drink.

“As part of the 1,600 samples we took from the water distribution system, none of them showed any indications of JP-5 contamination in the water,” the captain said. James “Gordie” Meyer, commander of NAVFAC Hawaii.

Many community members are still unhappy.

“The army poisoned our water, poisoned our children, then lied about it,” said one woman, who testified at the town hall meeting.

There is also frustration that the Navy refuses to release its initial internal investigation.

“I want the January report since this has already been written and I don’t care if it’s only preliminary,” said Dr. Melanie Lau, a member of the Hawaii Water Advisory Committee.

The Navy had no schedule for draining fuel and shutting down the Red Hill tanks.

“I don’t expect them to be measured over multiple years for each of these milestones, but I can’t commit to a timeline now,” Meyer said.

Google IO Google I/O, the advertising industry’s annual developer conference, returned Wednesday to the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, Calif., for the first time in three years. The gathering remained largely a distant event due to the persistence of COVID-19, although there were enough Googlers, partners and assorted software developers in attendance to fill the site’s seats and punctuate the points. significant applause.

Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google’s parent company, Alphabet, opened the keynote by bringing up some familiar themes. He leaned into the implied sentiment “We’re here to help,” a proposition that’s increasingly uncertain in light of the many controversies facing the company.

He said he wanted to explain how Google advances its mission in two ways, “by deepening our understanding of information so that we can turn it into knowledge and by advancing the state of computing so that knowledge be easier to access, no matter who or where you are.”

The opening video delivered a more succinct version of the message: “Technology has the power to improve everyone’s life. Just build it,” was the theme.

And Google has built things, for better or for worse. Pichai announced 24 languages ​​in Google Translate, which he attributed to advances in machine learning that can process the long tail of underrepresented languages.

“With advances in machine learning, we have developed a monolingual approach where the model learns to translate a new language without ever seeing a direct translation of it,” he said. “By collaborating with native speakers and institutions, we found that these translations were of sufficient quality to be useful.”

Pichai switched to Google Maps and described how the company uses computer vision to generate building models from satellite imagery.

“Using machine learning advances in 3D mapping, we merge billions of aerial and street-level images to create a new, high-fidelity representation of a place,” he explained. “These groundbreaking technologies come together to power a new experience in maps called immersive view. It lets you explore a place like never before.”

The video demo during the keynote showed an aerial view of the interior of a restaurant. What is remarkable about the scene is that it was not filmed using a drone, but was generated using neural network rendering software analyzing still images. The immersive view even works on mobile devices and will appear in Los Angeles, London, New York, San Francisco and Tokyo later this year, with more cities at a later date.

Google makes its Live View scene labeling technology available to ARCore developers for free through its Geospatial API. And it also extends its eco-friendly routing for Maps.

“Eco-friendly routes have already been rolled out in the United States and Canada and people have used them to travel 86 billion miles, helping to save an estimated half a million metric tons of carbon emissions, l ‘equivalent to taking 100,000 cars off the road,’ Pichai said. “I’m happy to share that we’re expanding this feature to more locations, including Europe later this year.”

AI helps video star

On YouTube, auto-generated chapters for videos are expected to grow from eight million today to 80 million over the next year. And voice recognition is applied to videos to create video transcripts which are now available for Android and iOS users.

The same goes for automatically translated captions. Pichai said machine-translated captions will be applied to Ukrainian content on YouTube next month as part of a broader effort to increase access to accurate information about the Russian-Ukrainian war.

Google’s AI recently landed in Google Docs via auto-summary. “This marks a big step forward for natural language processing,” Pichai said. “It requires understanding long passages, information compression, and language generation that were previously beyond the reach of the best machine learning models, and Docs is just the beginning.”

This tl;dr feature is now available in Spaces.

The Chocolate Factory’s fascination with AI is also evident in workspace enhancements such as “portrait light”, which will allow users of apps like Google Meet to simulate the presence of lights in the room, and “portrait restoration” to automatically improve video image quality.

To improve the presentation of various skin tones in images, Google has opened up the Monk Skin Tone Scale (MST), a framework for more accurate color rendering developed in collaboration with Harvard professor and sociologist Dr. Ellis Monk .

Prabhakar Raghavan, SVP at Google, took the stage to talk about various search improvements. The recently introduced multiple search capability – where the user takes an image and adds text to find specific information about the thing depicted – is being modified to handle the “near me” parameter, to return locally relevant results. This ability is expected to appear in English later this year.

Another innovation in the near future is “scene mining”, through which researchers will be able to view a scene with a mobile device camera and retrieve specific information about each element of the scene, such as the percentage of cocoa in every candy bar in the scene.

Google Assistant has learned to respond without its “Hey, Google” wake phrase. From today, the US-based Nest Hub Max can respond when looked at and addressed, for those who have opted in and pass face and voice match verifications. The device will also respond to a limited number of quick phrases, like “Set a timer for five minutes,” without “Hey, Google.”

The Android 13 beta has appeared, now in version 2. It includes a new photo picker with more granular media permissions, notification permission, and later this year will include a security settings page and unified privacy. It also comes with tablet and customization improvements.

Sameer Samat, vice president of product management at Google, highlighted Android 13’s support for RCS (Rich Communication Services), an upgrade to SMS messaging that includes end-to-end encryption. “We hope every mobile operating system will get the message and switch to RCS,” Samat said. “That way your messages are private no matter what device you’re using.”

Convenient, for safety at least, plus ear and wrist

On the hardware front, Google’s Pixel 6a will be available for pre-order, starting at $449, on July 21, with availability slated for July 28. It’s available in Chalk, Charcoal, and Sage, and shares the material used for the Pixel 6 and 6. Pro. Customers get five years of security updates, but no 3.5mm port.

Brian Rakwoski, vice president of product management, previewed the upcoming Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, due later this year.

“You can see we’ve extended the aluminum finish to the entire camera bar for the next evolution of pixel design language,” he said. “The camera body and bar are made from a single piece of 100% recycled aluminum and the beautiful pixel seven Pro and its triple camera system set a whole new standard in photography, performance and design.”

The Pixel 7, he said, will use the next-generation Google Tensor SoC and ship with Android 13.

Speaking of tensors, there was mention of eight Google TPUv4 AI Accelerator modules in an Oklahoma data center, providing approximately nine exaflops of aggregate computing capacity for Google Cloud customers so that researchers and businesses can get the same type of calculation that Google uses for its internal AI work.

There was also talk of Pixel Buds Pro, improvements to Google Wallet, and a preview of Google Pixel Watch.

Security and privacy got a lot of attention, with interface improvements like displaying account security status messages for the Google Account, expanding phishing and malware detection from Gmail to Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, 2-Step Verification (2SV) auto-enrollment, and virtual payment cards. for Android and Chrome this summer.

Pichai concluded the keynote with a nod to augmented reality applications, such as Google Lens, multiple search, scene exploration and immersive view, as a way to enhance the real world – this which is tempting to read as a multi-billion dollar layoff of Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg. bet on a blinded and groping virtual reality.

“That potential is what excites us most about augmented reality: the ability to spend time focusing on what matters in the real world, in our real lives,” Pichai said. “You know, the real world is pretty amazing.” ®

The Ohio Redistricting Commission is asking the state Supreme Court to rule on a legislative plan previously ruled unconstitutional only after it was used for the 2022 general election.

Those who agreed to resubmit a February version of the legislative redistricting plan treated the new/old plan as a “stop-gap” measure in arguments against objections filed with the Ohio Supreme Court.

“The Commission is out of options,” Secretary of State Frank LaRose said in his response to objections.

The legal challengers have asked the state’s highest court to hold the commissioners in defiance for their actions in the process, including violating Supreme Court orders.

The demands also requested that the court appoint a special master – a court-appointed neutral party – to lead the map-drawing process. They also requested that new cards be ordered by the end of this week.

Gov. Mike DeWine said objections to the cards “are completely detached from facts and reality.”

“Their submissions repeat the same hypercritical refrain, ignoring that the Commission’s primary constitutional charge is to develop redistricting plans for incorporation and use within Ohio’s statutory framework so that elections can, in effect, , unfold,” DeWine said in her court filing.

LaRose took his turn advising the Supreme Court on next steps, but they include a separate court, namely the U.S. District Court, taking on a case that asks the Federal Court to intervene where the commission and the Supreme Court did not.

A three-judge panel of that court said it would order the same map readopted by the commission on May 5 to be adopted as the map for the 2022 general election.

The state’s Chief Electoral Officer said the federal court must set the date for the Aug. 2 primaries “in stone,” while urging the General Assembly to put a plan in place regarding election deadlines.

“If any of these contingencies are not met, millions of Ohioans are at risk of being denied the right to meaningfully engage in the elective process,” LaRose told the Supreme Court of Ottawa. ‘Ohio. “This is a result that the secretary cannot accept.”

However, LaRose didn’t just blame the court or the commission for the current situation. He pointed to the General Assembly’s inaction on the issue leading the commission to its brick wall.

“The General Assembly has failed to act and there is no indication that it will ever be able to secure supermajority votes in every house to pass emergency legislation setting a date for a primary election. to the 2022 General Assembly and other associated election deadlines for the state’s legislative districts,” LaRose said.

LaRose, who voted with the majority to pass all of the legislative plans so far, acknowledged in the documents that the plan had already been rejected by the Supreme Court, but said the duplicate passage “doesn’t should not be considered an attack on the previous decision of this court”. .”

The commission’s co-chair, State Representative Jeff LaRe, joined State Senator Rob McColley in defending himself against objections, as did the men they replaced on the commission (the chairman of House Bob Cupp and Senate Speaker Matt Huffman) have done so in legal documents.

They supported statements made by LaRose in his response and in verbal and written statements he made during last week’s commission meetings exposing the election, essentially saying that a new plan would be impossible to implement. work.

“As a result, the realities of administering elections in Ohio compelled the commission to resubmit the third plan,” McColley and LaRe said in court documents.

The two lawmakers “are also aware that the third plan has already been struck down by the Court,” but stressed with LaRose the urgency of election administration.

“Alternatively, if the Court again invalidates the Third Plan, Defendants ask the Court to delay requiring any further remedy from the Commission until after the 2022 elections, at which time the elections will determine which members of the Commission will return to the Commission,” they said. wrote.

Despite LaRose saying that even an Aug. 2 date couldn’t work in committee discussions and in court papers indicating that legislative action would also need to be upheld, LaRe and McColley argue that Aug. 2 is the date. only viable election date” unless this Court wants to risk the administration of the 2022 election, confuse the electorate and drive down turnout.

Also to avoid voter confusion, McColley and LaRe said the 2022 election should go ahead with the third map, and any court rulings should come after that whether or not the map is found to be unconstitutional.

None of the court documents go into detail about whether an election could be held invalid if the cards used in the election are later found to be unconstitutional.

The only two to say the court should no longer consider the commission a source of redistricting power were the two Democratic members, who stood behind the map challengers at every turn.

“This Court must also discard any sense that the Republican Commissioners will respect the authority of this Court and the Ohio Constitution in the future unless it takes stronger action,” said Senator Vernon Sykes. and House Minority Leader Allison Russo in their court responses.

The City Council of Gastonia adjusted its six political wards to balance the population between the six wards within the city limits.

The changes, approved by city council on May 3, altered the city’s six districts. Neighborhoods play a role in where elected officials should live.

“It doesn’t matter what neighborhood you are in, we want to take care of all the people,” said Gastonia City Councilor Dave Kirlin.

Deputy City Manager Quentin McPhatter presented two scenarios at the May 3 meeting.

The city has approved “Scenario C,” which can be viewed online along with other interactive maps showing the layout of neighborhoods before and after the redistricting process.

McPhatter said the city has only received a few emails from residents with questions about the process.

He also recommends residents use their addresses and the interactive online maps to find what neighborhood they live in and contact city staff with any questions.

Microsoft Bing has leveraged the full capabilities of the Bing Maps Platform to create the Bing Maps Covid-19 Tracker, a website for location mapping and visualization of critical information that details global Covid-19 cases and vaccine distribution and delivery plans.

The Covid-19 tracker collects data from trusted health sources, such as the World Health Organization and the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and presents both the distribution of cases of the virus and the vaccination plans of several countries together.

Location intelligence features such as Location Recognition API and Spatial Data Service Geodata API have also been used to include region-based features in the tracker so users can find their centers nearest vaccination.

The tracker shows the different types of vaccines available in different countries, different types of vaccines available and assigns them to the countries in which they are available, including ongoing trials and regulatory approvals.

Bing Maps also uses AnimatedTileLayer events to visualize data on vaccinations and current cases for each region. Red circles are used to represent regional virality while green circles at different levels of completion represent the distribution of vaccination in a particular area.

Automated data visualization is also presented in up-to-date charts for any region selected by the user.
