Acoem’s acoustic threat detection technology helps detect gunshots and assists in multiple arrests of shooters in Edenton, North Carolina

EDENTON, N.C. -- The Edenton Police Department has partnered with Acoem USA to implement Acoustic Threat Detection (ATD) technology to combat the community's recent increase in gun violence incidents. These real-time alerts triggered by ATD sensors notify police precisely when and where gun violence incidents occur.

This results in a faster, more accurate response to the scene to better recover evidence, interview witnesses and tend to gunshot victims.

Edenton, N.C. was one of the first communities in the state to use this ATD. The town installed 15 ATD sensors during the summer of 2021. With Acoem's technology able to localize a threat with one sensor, the scalability allowed this small town the opportunity to have big-city technology on a lower budget.

To date, its success in the public arena has been unmatched. In its first year of deployment, the Acoem ATD system detected 100 percent of the gunshots within its detection range with video evidence of a vehicle in a drive-by shooting. Most recently, on October 31, 2022, an Acoem sensor detected and alerted that multiple shots were fired in Edenton. Video evidence helped to identify and consequently arrest two shooters within 24 hours.

"We're committed to creating a community that allows its citizens to feel safe so that they can go about their lives," Henry King, Chief of Police, Town of Edenton, N.C., says. "Acoem's ATD is one part of our overall community-first policing plan and having technology like this in our tool belt keeps us one step ahead of criminals."

Acoem ATD systems are built to fit the end users' needs and work with their existing VMS, dispatch and other alerting software in use. With Acoem ATD systems, there's no intermediary. The end user controls their program.

"It was simple to integrate into our existing camera system and gives us the control we need to get alerts immediately," King adds.

ATD can be mounted just about anywhere. Walls and light poles are common examples, but they can adapt to any location due to their flexible mounting capabilities.

"Gunshot detection is not a new technology in the security market, but with Acoem being one of the original innovators of gunshot detection over three decades ago, our ATD sensor has a big advantage over competitors," Mike Arnold, sales manager for Acoem, says.

Acoem's technology is paired with a PTZ camera to not only provide an alert, location and audio, but also to give first responders a look at what is happening at the scene by moving the camera in the direction of the threat as it's detected.

"That situational awareness can be a force multiplier in an active situation," Arnold says. "Along with our AI, scalability and giving the end user ownership and control over their system, Acoem can be a game changer for our communities, schools and in everyday life."

BioBuilder and K2 Scientific Bring Synthetic Biology Programs and Laboratory Equipment to High-Need High Schools Around the Country

BOSTON, Mass. -- As a world-recognized program that trains the next generation of innovators and skilled workers in synthetic biology, the BioBuilder Educational Foundation announced new work with K2 Scientific to make high quality tools and equipment for life science research widely accessible. BioBuilder has partnered with K2 Scientific, who will donate industry-grade refrigeration units to four high-need high schools participating in the BioBuilderClub this academic year.

Consistent refrigeration of laboratory reagents is essential for a wide variety of biotechnology experiments and applications. Without precise temperature control and storage, materials and supplies for life science research degrade. Yet many high school educators, especially those in under-resourced school districts, rely on limited and unreliable cold-storage units. Many teachers forgo hands-on laboratory experiments without the appropriate cold storage equipment.

Recognizing that many high schools face financial constraints that limit classroom opportunities in the field of synthetic biology, BioBuilder annually runs the BioBuilderClub program. Since its inception in 2015, more than 1850 students from demographically and geographically diverse schools in 24 states and 7 countries have participated in a total of 202 BioBuilderClubs at low or no cost to the schools themselves. The BioBuilderClub supports real and meaningful student research, enabling high school students to take their ideas from concept to prototype to publication.

On November 9, 2022, staff and leadership from K2 Scientific and BioBuilder identified the first of four BioBuilderClubs to receive a freezer this academic year. The first recipient is the BioBuilderClub team from the Manhattan Comprehensive Night and Day High School (MCNDHS), a public school in New York City that serves students in grades 10-12.

Alfred Lwin, the MCNDHS BioBuilderClub lead teacher, said, "Our refrigerator is 20 years old, and sometimes we have difficulties using its freezer for cold storage. Thanks to the generous donation of a lab grade refrigerator by K2 Scientific, we will be able to use cold storage for our BioBuilder and other biotechnology labs."

Dee Jetton, COO from K2 Scientific, shared, "We could not be prouder to support this program. I am always so excited to see the great things the BioBuilder Program and its participants are accomplishing. We are thrilled to contribute to BioBuilder programs around the country. K2 Scientific is committed to equity and inclusion, so bringing medical and laboratory grade equipment to high-need schools is a perfect mission fit. It's nice for our team to learn about students' aha moments and accomplishments resulting from K2's support of young scientists in the field."

Founder and Executive Director of BioBuilder, Dr. Natalie Kuldell noted, "Our BioBuilderClubs are often the first - and sometimes the only - time high school students can engage in authentic research before they launch into college or careers. By making that research experience more accessible and more meaningful, we can effectively engage the next generation of scientific innovators and productively prepare our future citizens."

About BioBuilder:

Created by an award-winning team from MIT, BioBuilder empowers teachers and schools to better serve students and employers by elevating the skills that students are taught. Founded in 2011, BioBuilder has grown to partner with schools in almost every state and around the world. BioBuilder builds confidence in teachers to learn and apply the synthetic biology curricula, and provides laboratory kits and an openly accessible textbook that enable experiential learning.

BioBuilder also works directly with district and community leaders to identify potential roadblocks to narrow the gap between science innovation and science education - at least for biology - across the U.S., and better match the skill of our nation's workforce to the needs of the synthetic biology industry.

iDenfy partners with advertising platform MGID to provide ID verification

KAUNAS, Lithuania -- An identity verification and fraud prevention startup, iDenfy, announced its new partnership with MGID, a global advertising platform. Using iDenfy's full-stack ID verification services will help MGID boost new registrations while securing the onboarding process.

Forging documents and committing fraud are more frequent because of the low costs and the technology-driven market. Fraudsters are becoming more sophisticated with their techniques, and businesses and internet users report record financial losses.

Card Not Present reports that in the first half of 2022 alone, there were 800,000 fraud cases reported in the United States. Considering this, iDenfy company officials stress the importance of having a more robust fraud detection system for financial institutions and all digital platform operators.

According to MGID, Know Your Client (KYC) procedures, once strictly used in financial institutions, are standards now adopted by industries outside the financial sector. To keep up with security requirements and to stay compliant with the ever-changing regulations, MGID began to look for a new ID verification provider and found iDenfy's four-step ID verification solution. MGID claims that the new implementation protects current and potential clients by ensuring that the business is transparent and all customers are legitimate individuals.

MGID is a global advertising platform helping brands reach unique local audiences at scale. It uses privacy-first, AI-based technology to serve high-quality, relevant ads in brand-safe environments. The company offers a variety of ad formats, including native, display, and video, to deliver a positive user experience. MGID helps advertisers drive performance and awareness while enabling publishers to retain and monetize their audiences. Brand-safe, privacy-first advertising is MGID's top priority. Alongside protecting user data and maintaining transparency, MGID has strict standards to ensure that users see only relevant, high-quality creatives and honest advertising.

iDenfy's solution was created to respond to the demanding fraud prevention market. The AI-powered verification software detects forged documents and fake identities by quickly extracting information and identifying suspicious patterns. Currently, iDenfy's platform assists MGID in automating customer due diligence and protecting the business from potential risks. Additionally, the newly implemented identity verification service powers a simple yet secure and efficient onboarding process for individual advertisers accessing MGID's platform.

According to the ID verification startup, a higher volume of new registration attempts means a higher chance of fraud, especially if the organization doesn't have the right tools at its disposal. To improve accuracy and completely eradicate fraud, iDenfy's in-house KYC experts review each verification manually, minimizing fraud risks and preventing unwanted registrations during MGID's customer onboarding process.

"iDenfy's advanced identity verification helps us stay compliant with current laws and regulations while providing a smoother experience for our customers. We believe that an effective fraud prevention system is essential in today's digital age, especially if you want to make the best possible decisions for your business," said Oleksandr Nazarenko, Head of the Fraud Protection Department at MGID.

"We've reached one of our goals and created an efficient, user-friendly identity verification process that helps authenticate documents in real time. Now, we're glad to have found more long-term partners who put their trust in our security tools, allowing us to safeguard their business from fraud," added Domantas Ciulde, the CEO of iDenfy.

About iDenfy:

iDenfy, a platform of identity verification services and fraud prevention tools ensures AML and KYC compliance for every company - from large-scale businesses to small organizations. The rapidly growing business was named the best "Fintech Startup" in 2020. The company also received recognition for winning a Baltic Assembly Prize for innovation in 2021.
