Introduction to Deep Learning on Social Networks: “How to learn even more about your personal life using Neural Networks Technology”

One of the last inspiration about Social Networks is the human brain.

The new idea is to develop a new “neural networking” technique that collects data and uses that data towards other processes, much like the neurons in the human brain do when learning something.

Neuron - Intellisystem Technologies

Scientifically speaking neural networks are not a news for scientific application. Personally i used such techniques to forecast pollution data from measured data series with very low margin error.

I also used such neural networks for advanced speech recognition technology, especially applied to mobile phone.

The new challenge is to take a new approach to the task of digitizing our personalities and spinning them into nicely saleable little packages. After all, posting and updating an exhaustive list of your favorite bands tends to lose its appeal around the end of adolescence; if a social network wants to understand what our material wants and needs, it will have to look into our much more personal, much less intelligible and hidden communications. So the future of social networks is to adopt a Chief Technology Scientist Officer in order to manage a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) team with the focus to building a new neural networks technology in order to learn about your personality in a new and remarkably human way.

What is a Neural Networks? How it works?

An Artificial Neural Networks is a simplified mathematical model of the biological ones. Similarly it use nodes rather than neurons but building the same sorts of complex interconnections between them (synapses). Rather than storing all data in a huge pool to be analyzed as a whole, neural networks are able to memorize and so  remember associations between concepts, streamlining the process of retrieval and analysis.

Neural Net - Intellisystem Technologies

This techniques allow computer scientists to make algorithms for something called “deep learning,” which arranges ideas as layers of definitions. Small concepts collectively define larger ones, which define larger ones, and so on. With enough input information, a sufficiently detailed neural network can learn quite deeply indeed.

The powerful deep learning algorithms have the potential to change most of how we interact with social media. Try to imagine that your favorable Social Network could recommend you a slight rewording to your latest update, or that if an algorithm could tell you which image will get your attention only analyzing your face expressions ?

Try to imagine your brain functions like the Internet or a network of friends, the human brain can be visualized as a complex interacting network that relies on nodes to efficiently convey information from place to place. Very few jumps are necessary to connect any two nodes,  “This so-called ‘small world’ property allows for the most efficient connectivity “.  In other words other networks ( social and biochemical) rely on the same principle.

This is briefly the new Social Networks challenge!

Fiber over copper cable - Intellisystem Technologies


It is well known that Fiber optic cable is one of the most popular mediums for both new cabling installations and upgrades, including backbone, horizontal, and even desktop applications. Fiber offers countless advantages over copper.

Reported below I will try to classify this vantages in only few points that are the most representative:

  1. Greater bandwidth

Fiber provides more bandwidth than copper and has standardized performance up to 10 Gbps and beyond (experimentally car reach to 100 GB). More bandwidth means fiber can carry more information with greater fidelity than copper wire. Keep always in mind that fiber speeds are dependent on the type of cable used. Single-mode fiber offers the greatest bandwidth and no bandwidth requirements compared to the multi-mode one.

  1. Speed and distance

Due to the fiber optic signal nature made of light, very little signal loss occurs during transmission, and data can move at higher speeds and greater distances (theoretically at the light speed). Fiber does not have the copper’s 100-meter (328-ft.) distance limitation of unshielded twisted pair copper (without a booster). Fiber distances depend of the cable quality, wavelength and network. Distances can range from 550 meters (984.2 ft.) for 10-Gbps multi-mode and up to 40 kilometers (24.8 mi.) for single-mode cable. The majority of backbones in large companies are fiber.

  1. Security

The data transmitted over the fiber are always safe. It doesn’t radiate signals and is extremely difficult to tap. If the cable is tapped, it’s very easy to monitor because the cable leaks light, causing the entire system to fail. If an attempt is made to break the physical security of your fiber system, you’ll know it. Take in account that there are many different application that use the fiber as intrusion detection system exploiting the just mentioned properties.

Fiber networks also enable you to put all your electronics and hardware in one central location, instead of having wiring closets with equipment throughout the plant.

  1. Immunity and reliability

Fiber provides extremely reliable data transmission. It’s completely immune to many environmental factors that affect copper cable typically caused electromagnetic interference. The fiber’s core is made of glass, which is an insulator, so no electric current can flow through. It’s immune to electrometric interference and radio-frequency interference (EMI/RFI), crosstalk, impedance problems, and more. You can run fiber cable next to Oil&Gas industrial equipment without worry. Fiber is also less susceptible to temperature fluctuations than copper and can be submerged in water. Fiber is the ideal choice for Oil&Gas application both inshore and offshore.

  1. Design

Fiber is lightweight, thin, and more durable than copper cable. To get higher speeds using copper cable, you need to use a higher grade of cable, which typically have larger outside diameters, weight more, and take up more space in cable trays. With fiber cable, there is very little different in diameter or weight. Plus, fiber optic cable has pulling specifications that are up to 10 times greater than copper cable (depending on the specific cable). Its small size makes it easier to handle, and it takes up much less space in cabling ducts. And, fiber is easier to test than copper cable.

  1. Migration

The proliferation and lower costs of media converters are making copper to fiber migration much easier. The converters provide seamless links and enable the use of existing hardware. Fiber can be incorporated into network in planned upgrades by simply using the adequate copper to fiber converters.

  1. Field termination.

Although fiber is still more difficult to terminate than copper, advancements in technology have made terminating and using fiber in the field easier. Terminating fiber optic cable is not as simple as copper. While manufacturers have developed crimp-on connectors, they are expensive, high loss and have not been very reliable. Fiber optic connectors need adhesives for reliability and low cost. And most installation involves stripping fibers, injecting adhesives and polishing the ends. No IDC (insulation displacement connectors) here. Any good installer can learn how to terminate fiber in less than 2 hours.

  1. Cost

The cost for fiber cable, components, and hardware has steadily decreased. Overall, fiber cable is more expensive than copper cable in the short run, but it may be less expensive in the long run. Fiber typically costs less to maintain, has less downtime, and requires less networking hardware. In addition, advances in field termination technology has reduced the cost of fiber installation as well.

Thanks to the last thermal imaging vision systems technology Intellisystem Technologies, has developed an innovative tool for the automated monitoring of industrial flare stacks typically used in the Oil & Gas industry. The proposed system is designed and made to allow the continuous monitoring of industrial flare stacks with reference to the flame presence. By using special infrared cameras it is possible to get a realtime thermal flame map. On this way we are constantly assured by the visual inspection of the presence of a flame even in special conditions such as strong backlighting, light inconspicuous, poor visibility due to fog etc. The proposed system is called ESF (Flare Stacks Eye) and it is easily interfaces with automation systems and DCS systems installed on the industrial plant. With this solution it is possible to improve the workplace safety as well as the optimization of the product combustion in favor of a lower environmental impact.

‘Green and profitable’: how to increase profits by reducing consumption

1) An investment in ‘green’ technology can give concrete economic returns or just image?

 In general, the ‘green’ technology is a growing market a bit ‘everywhere: as reported by multiple sources, the sector “clean tech” continues to record new investments in the developed and developing, considering that between 2007 and 2010, growth was on average 11.8% per year. While globally the phenomenon is very significant, particularly in the developing countries this translates into new opportunities for export of hi-tech products made in Italy, an occasion not to be missed for Italian companies that invest in research and innovation. I think that the discussion concerning the image is secondary to the concrete to produce new technologies at low cost eco-friendly since a few decades, we should deal with the effects of various policies not environmentally sustainable implemented so far especially in emerging countries. Working from the front green technologies seem a reasonable bet for new companies that offer so-called “green jobs” that occupied that apply technological “green” skills.

2) As network technologies can help to combine sustainability and profitability of the industry?

Always the possession of technologies for telecom, and then networking technologies, have been successful, just think of the countless conflicts won by those who owned the most advanced technological solutions. Today the various technological challenges of the challenge adds “green-networking” that from the standpoint of industrial means to emphasize the concepts of: greater integration, reducing distances, more automation, consistent with the reduction in operating costs; which results in greater sustainability and profitability for its user. Waste in this area are endless just think of the title d ‘example:

For long periods of inactivity of the various networking devices during the hours in which the companies do not work;
The waste of energy inherent in the cable lengths. For example, any ethernet switch is designed to support up to 100 m cable when on average in the companies segments are average of 5-10 meters. It would be desirable that the switch is capable of detecting the cable length, and then adjust accordingly the energy consumption.

3) There would be helpful or a standard or a reference brand for communication technologies in order to certify the energy efficiency and / or environmental sustainability? (Energy Star type in information or the energy label of household appliances)

Surely it would be very useful as well as already happens in other sectors, the consumer would have one more tool for better orientation in the choice of network equipment, perhaps placing the questions on issues concerning their consumption. It seems trivial, but the majority of SMEs in Italy has never raised the issue of adopting solutions to reduce the cost of energy consumption of its network equipment. The words will not be easy to get on with it because like any self-respecting standards will take years for the definition and implementation of assessment protocols.

4) What technological innovations can help the spread of communication networks in ‘green’ projects ?

Surely the technology of “smart sensing” or applications of sensors and sensor networks can significantly contribute to a more efficient use of resources, environmental challenges and reduce the effects of climate change. In “Smart Buildings” the pair of minimum standards of energy efficiency with the use of sensor technology can be an important factor in reducing the use of electricity and the emission of greenhouse gases. However, effects of type “rebound” must be taken into account, in particular in transport. Greater efficiency due to the use of sensor technology must be accompanied by a demand management to internalize environmental costs, for example by encouraging the systemic change in consumer behavior and educating users to a conscious energy saving. Policies and initiatives of the government, in my opinion, is crucial to sustaining the positive environmental effects resulting use of sensors and sensor networks. One solution would be intense programmatic activity that has as its objective to demonstrate and promote the use of sensor technology through pilot projects which aim to offer a valuable support to the development of open standards.

5) Do you have quantitative results obtained to share in some of your projects or your customer?

Our company has always been involved in these issues and was one of the first to design and manufacture of embedded systems for remote monitoring of remote devices with the dual goal of automating the latter consistent with energy conservation. We were among the first in Italy to bring to market a system capable of controlling loads of equipment allowing the activation and deactivation as a function of energy-saving policies. Today the greatest needs of our customers are focused on monitoring the consumption of production machines. We are developing a system based on smart sensing technologies that we expect will allow a reduction in consumption estimated at between 10 and 30% depending on the types of application.

(Italiano) (English) How to optimize your Information Technology Infrastructure?

Sorry, this entry is only available in Italian. For the sake of viewer convenience, the content is shown below in the alternative language. You may click the link to switch the active language.

Interview to Cristian Randieri PhD, President & CEO. As an IT Engineer many times I asked me this question “How to optimize your Information Technology Infrastructure?”
Doing different research on Internet I found and liked the report “Optimize IT Infrastructure to Maximize Workload Performance” edited by It finds that many organizations today are struggling to understand, manage and optimize their infrastructure to meet the complex and demanding workloads of this new business era. However, this report also reveals the strategies of companies that are leaders in high performing IT infrastructures. By understanding the success factors and the strategies in the full report, it is possible to learn how to achieve the full benefit of an optimized IT infrastructure.

Briefly the key success factors can be summarize in:

1- Take advantage of automated processes by understanding your application delivery infrastructure from end to end.
With visibility across your infrastructure (from storage to servers to networks), it is possible to monitor the overall performance of applications and services. With real-time and automated capabilities, IT organizations can realize the value of their aDDtication and infrastructure investments faster.

2- Adopt and deploy new technologies and trends. 
It is crucial that your IT organizations stay continuously updated (through leading publications and the web) to the last technology trends that are helping to improve the quality of IT infrastructures, such as the last technology about cloud, big data and mobile. With this new technologies transforming it is crucial that organizations take advantage of trends like cloud and big data in order to optimize their service delivery.

3- Improve server and management platforms to boost the entire company. 
Improved uptime, performance and workload management need not end with critical enterprise applications and IT services. All IT services are critical in their own way and Best-in-Class IT shops can ensure that their IT hardware brings benefits across the company.

4- Make IT a full business partner with an IT service centric approach. 
Imitate the leading organizations that ensure for the IT a seat at the management table by converging systems and breaking down the walls between operations, networking, development and the business side. With added focus on performance, reliability and efficiency, leaders gain optimized IT infrastructures that meet end-user needs and boost productivity.

5 – Update your IT infrastructure. 
Today more that on the past no one IT infrastructure can succeed by relying on old and out of date hardware. By taking advantage of the best of modern hardware and management platforms you must optimize your entire business for success.

Thermography for Oil & Gas application -Intellisystem Technologies

Thermography for Oil & Gas application

Thermography plays an important role within the petrochemical, chemical, and power generation industries. With the current global energy crisis, these energy-based industries must continue to meet high volume demands while reducing operational costs and preventing failures. Such failures can lead to losses in production that may result in a domino effect all the way down to the consumer. With our coast guard thermography applications used within the petrochemical and energy sectors we want to show how it is possible to have a continuous monitoring even on the dark or with fog…….
