3S NEWS

Quarter III - 2018, 3S Intersoft JSC raises a giant campaign on How to increase productivity and quality of Unit Test with the budget of 200,000,000 VND and a long with so many exciting activities.

OPEN TALK - UNIT TEST

Campaign UT which was kicked off on August 17th, took spotlight of all 3S events in Quarter III such as 3S Fact, Hi Monday, 3S Radio’s news. This campaign also took notice of every 3Siers in all roles from PM to developers. Each member was equipped a 4.0 bee with the slogan of Unit Test.

In order that 3siers can understand all about Campaign’s content and Unit Test, 3S YU hold a Talk Show at 17:00 September 07th at 3S HappyZone. The Talk Show invited so many famous speakers who are Unit leaders, QA Lead, BOD, PM. All members from 2 sites 3S HO and 3S Da Nang was so excited with the events. They gave so many hard questions for speakers to understand all features of Unit Test. This campaign promises to increase productivity and quality of all 3S projects.

VLAB PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT CENTER

20th July 2018 marks a significant milestone for 3S Intersoft JSC with the establishment of Vlab product development center. This event also marks another development step for the cooperative relationship between 3S and our Korean strategic partner. By this special cooperation, 3S hope to learn valuable experience from Korean experts in terms of hardware design and development; from that, together we can build and develop good products for enterprises in Vietnam, Korea and other countries. VLAB is one of integral parts of our effort in #transformation and #precision strategy, which is also a cornerstone in the very long technology road toward providing innovative ICT services to the global and local markets.

Congratulations, 3S Intersoft JSC and we would like to express the gratitude to you all for making today's event successful. Wish 3S in general and Vlab in particular achieve more success and become more powerful!

3D printing technology fostered in Vietnam

The Center for Science and Technology Information (CESTI) under the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Science and Technology has just organized the meeting ‘3D Printing Technology – Future Implementation’.

This meeting aims at analyzing possible future trends in the field, since there have been around 19,190 inventions related to 3D printing technology worldwide.

According to Dr. Hoang Xuan Tung from the Materials Technology Department of the Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) University of Technology, this new printing method allows designers to form precise physical model from a 3D CAD design. The new model is able to display highly complicated details with much cheaper expense.

The 3D printing technology can be applied in all industries and aspects of life.

 

In the event, other scientists from the HCMC University of Technology also shared that they were researching the 3D printing technology using plastic combined with metal. They successfully created and experimented many types of common 3D printers to serve teaching and learning purposes.

However, experts commented that the implementation of 3D printing technology in Vietnam is on an initially stage, and thus many machines have to be imported.

Simultaneously, the competitiveness is increasing since experienced foreign companies of the field are expected to enter the domestic market in the near future.

It is high time to foster the implementation of this new technology to reality while encouraging more thorough research on materials to serve 3D printing in the fields of mechanics, construction, and bio-medicine. This new technology also needs popularizing among schools and manufacturing plants.

 

Robothon festival held in HCMC

The Robothon Festival was jointly organized yesterday by STEM Academy and the Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) Department of Education and Training.  

28 teams from many primary schools in the city gathered in the Sports Center of District 8 to enjoy the festival.

This annual Robothon Festival is a robotic playground for primary and secondary students in both Vietnam and neighboring nations in order to boost their studying as well as exploration spirit so that they can gradually master technology while in school.

The festival also aims at introducing the subject of robotic assembling and controlling to pupils, resulting in the fostering of potential science – technology lovers.

Contests in the festival were able to identify some champions from the groups of elementary and intermediate levels, all of which come from Le Ngoc Han Primary School in District 1.

The Robothon Festival is also held in other cities like Hanoi, the central city of Da Nang, and the southern city of Can Tho, attracting more than 500 participants. Winners in contests of each area will be nominated to take part in the International Robothon Festival organized in China on November 25.

New Apple Watch could save lives.

The Apple Watch may be a useful tool for detecting potentially fatal medical conditions such as hypertension (high blood pressure) and sleep apnea (a sleep disorder characterized by pauses in breathing while a person is asleep), claims a new study.

Carried out by the health startup Cardiogram and the University of California San Francisco, the study illustrates that the Apple Watch can detect hypertension with 82 percent, and hypertension with an impressive 90 percent.

It follows a similar previous study by Cardiogram and UCSF, which demonstrated that the Apple Watch can detect abnormal heart rhythms with a 97 percent accuracy.

The new study involved 6,115 participants, who were recruited through the Cardiogram app to test using their Apple Watch. The researchers then used a deep learning artificial neural network — one of the tools which is at the centre of recent big advances in artificial intelligence — to carry out diagnosis based on users’ heart rate and step count data. It required no additional hardware, other than what the Apple Watch already features.

While the work would need to go through plenty more stages before it was able to be rolled out as an FDA-approved medical diagnostic tool, the idea of being able to use a wearable device like the Apple Watch is certainly promising. The ability to have your Watch alert you if it detects a potentially fatal problem could help the device provide a function that can prove difficult for physicians to diagnose under some conditions.

Can AI Provide Advice About Cancer?

AI in cancer care holds a lot of promise, but the future isn't quite here yet.

IT SEEMS ALMOST EVERY day there's exciting news coming out about the promise of artificial intelligence to cure cancer. Just a few examples of the pace of discovery and the hope attached to these types of technological developments include a recent study detailing how a machine-learning technique could speed up identification of ER-positive breast cancers, image -based technologies that are learning to spot genetic mutations in lung cancer just based on how samples of the tumor look and AI-based skin cancer diagnostic tools that outperformed experienced pathologists. With all these advances, hope abounds that AI might be the future of cancer detection, identification and treatment.

Several startups have rushed to capitalize on this forward motion, leading to other recent news reports suggesting artificial intelligence systems designed to help doctors diagnose cancer and predict outcomes may not be ready for prime time. Recent reports have noted that prominent AI-based cancer detection system IBM Watson for Oncology was trained on synthetic patient records, rather than real cases as was advertised, and that it generated "unsafe and incorrect treatment recommendations" according to leaked internal documents.

This mixed bag of reports about what's going on in the AI-for-cancer space – a potentially huge market that could completely disrupt how cancer care is delivered – indicates that for the moment, the promise of AI seems very bright, but there is still a long way to go before such technologies will become commonplace in the clinic and an even vaster gulf to cross before we enter an era where machines might replace human diagnosticians and prognosticators.
