Smartcar, True Mileage Offer Auto Insurers Optimal UBI data, Analytics for 60 Million+ Vehicles

Smartcar provides APIs to verify vehicle mileage and more; True Mileage UBI analytics converts vehicle data into accurate discounts for auto insurers

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIFORNIA , AND SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, January 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The API platform Smartcar and usage-based insurance (UBI) analytics provider True Mileage today announced their partnership to launch a simple and accurate mileage and UBI solution for auto insurers. Smartcar’s APIs allow insurers to verify vehicle mileage, time of day, and additional information without the need for hardware. True Mileage UBI analytics convert this vehicle data into accurate discounts.

While mileage discount programs are an effective tool for insurers to attract and retain policyholders, mileage itself has historically been difficult to verify and thus difficult to use as a reliable rating factor. In addition to the billions of dollars that insurers lose due to underreported mileage every year, mileage has also become a common cause of customer churn, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Auto insurers use True Mileage’s UBI analytics to provide discount programs for their policyholders. All of these programs—which include pay-per-mile policies, discounts at point of sale, and adjusted renewal rates—verify or accurately estimate a driver’s mileage and compensate them if their mileage is lower than expected.

This year, car owners are still driving less than before the pandemic, and consumer advocates are asking insurers to issue additional premium refunds. Instead of offering the same refund to all drivers, mileage discount programs allow insurers to accurately categorize each car owner’s risk and adjust rates accordingly—not only during the COVID-19 pandemic but in the long term, too.

The combination of Mileage Discount Analytics and Daytime Discount Analytics from True Mileage’s analytics products —both built on massive unbiased national datasets—can be used in conjunction with Smartcar’s API that provides accurate mileage, time of day data, and more without the need for an aftermarket device, a UBI app, or any ongoing driver action. Smartcar’s API technology allows insurers to connect directly to a driver’s vehicle via a permission-based consent flow that allows drivers to share periodic odometer readings and optionally their vehicle location. The insurer collects the vehicle’s mileage and mileage by time of day, then runs this data through True Mileage’s analytic models to calculate an accurate discount.

Smartcar CEO Sahas Katta said, "We're excited to partner with True Mileage, making auto insurance fairer and more affordable during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. I'm looking forward to seeing the impact that our partnership will make for both car owners and insurers."

"I was completely awestruck when I learned that Smartcar enables insurers to connect to over 60 million vehicles—a number that’s vastly superior to other solutions on the market," said True Mileage Founder and CEO Ryan Morrison. "This is a huge step forward for the insurance telematics industry. We're excited to be at the forefront of this incredible advancement."

Auto insurance providers in the United States can now request early access to the comprehensive and hassle-free UBI solution. True Mileage and Smartcar plan to make the solution publicly available later this year.

ABOUT TRUE MILEAGE

True Mileage, founded in 2012 and based in Seattle, is on a mission to accelerate adoption of UBI and its myriad societal benefits through improved analytics and technology. True Mileage analytics are built on massive national datasets from all states and insurers and may be applied to data from any source. Every analytics offering has a significant competitive advantage and includes products for mileage, time of day, accelobrakes (hard braking refined), and relative speed. For more information, visit http://www.truemileage.com.

ABOUT SMARTCAR

Founded in 2015, Smartcar is the leading developer platform for mobility businesses. From auto insurance and car sharing to EV charging and fleet management, businesses of all kinds use Smartcar’s APIs to integrate their apps and services with vehicles. By making it easy to connect to their customers' cars, Smartcar allows these companies to focus on what’s important: building the future of mobility.

Pasqua South Medical Aesthetics Discusses Common Questions and Answers About PRP Treatments

Regina’s premier provider of medical aesthetics has moved to a new clinic

Regina’s premier provider of medical aesthetics has moved to a new clinic

One of Regina’s leading providers of medical aesthetics treatments recently answered common questions and answers about PRP treatments.

No, most patients experience little to no pain.”

— Dr. Tomi Mitchell

REGINA, SK, CANADA, January 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — One of Regina’s leading providers of medical aesthetics treatments recently answered common questions and answers about PRP treatments.

The clinic’s owner, Dr. Tomi Mitchell explains that PRP is short for Platelet Rich Plasma, and is a popular skin rejuvenation treatment. While its popularity derives from it being virtually painless, and effective in triggering the natural process of collagen production, many still have questions about it.

First, patients want to know how much downtime they’ll experience after a PRP treatment.

The required downtime for an PRP treatment is very little. In fact, the minimal downtime is one of the reasons that many patients choose this option. The process takes a total of 30 minutes followed by a recommended 24-48 hours of avoiding heat and washing. Some experience minor bruising and swelling.

Next, patients are curious if PRP treatments hurt. “No, most patients experience little to no pain,” Dr. Mitchell explains. One of the most desirable things about PRP treatment is that it produces facelift like results with little to no pain. An advanced medical micro-needling gun is used to painlessly treat the skin and trigger collagen production. As the skin is injected with platelet-rich plasma it becomes rejuvenated.

Patients are also curious about any side effects from PRP treatments. As Dr. Mitchell explains, the side effects from PRP only include slight swelling which goes away after a few days post-treatment. There is a small chance of the body rejecting the treatment as it includes the body’s own physiological factors. These factors are responsible for growth in treating aging problems.

“How many PRP treatments should I receive?” is another common question Pasqua South Medical Aesthetics gets. Just three weeks after an appointment patients will begin to notice an improvement in their skin tone. From there, three PRP treatments should be received approximately six weeks apart in order to achieve optimal results. A yearly follow up treatment is helpful for maintaining results.

Finally, patients are curious about how PRP treats hair loss. PRP treatments can be helpful in treating hair loss as a mesogun is used to create microscopic holes in the scalp. This is then followed with PRP injections into the deep layers of the scalp. New hair growth comes from the stimulation of the existing hair follicles, which helps to treat hair loss.

Pasqua South Medical Aesthetics can be contacted for further comment or to learn more about PRP treatments in Regina at (306) 559-1310.

Berryville Institute of Machine Learning (BIML) Gets $150,000 Open Philanthropy Grant. Funding will advance ethical AI research

BERRYVILLE, VA, UNITED STATES, January 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Berryville Institute of Machine Learning (BIML), a research think tank dedicated to safe, secure and ethical development of AI technologies, announced today that it is the recipient of a $150,000 grant from Open Philanthropy.

BIML, which is already well known in ML circles for its pioneering document, "Architectural Risk Analysis of Machine Learning Systems: Toward More Secure Machine Learning," will use the Open Philanthropy grant to further its scientific research on Machine Learning risk and get the word out more widely through talks, tutorials, and publications.

"In a future where machine learning shapes the trajectory of humanity, we'll need to see substantially more attention on thoroughly analyzing ML systems from a security and safety standpoint," said Catherine Olsson, Senior Program Associate for Potential Risks from Advanced Artificial Intelligence at Open Philanthropy. "We are excited to see that BIML is taking a holistic, security-engineering inspired view, that considers both accidental risk and intentional misuse risk. We hope this funding will support the growth of a strong community of ML security practitioners at the intersection of real-world systems and basic research."

Early work on ML security focuses on specific failures, including systems that learn to be sexist, racist and xenophobic, and systems that can be manipulated by attackers. The BIML ML Security Risk Framework details the top 10 security risks in ML systems today. It is designed for use by developers, engineers, designers and others who are creating applications and services that use ML technologies, and can be practically applied in the early design and development phases of any ML project.

"In what is by now an all too familiar pattern, our embrace of advanced ML technology is outpacing an understanding of the security risks its use drags along with it. AI and ML automation continues to accelerate at an alarming pace," said Dr. Gary McGraw, co-founder of BIML and world renowned software security pioneer. "At BIML, we're dedicated to exposing and elucidating security risk in ML systems. We are pleased as punch that Open Philanthropy is pouring accelerant on our spark."

About BIML

The Berryville Institute of Machine Learning was created in 2019 to address security issues with ML and AI. The organization was founded by Gary McGraw, author, long-time security expert and CTO of Cigital (acquired by Synopsys); Harold Figueroa, director of Machine Intelligence Research and Applications (MIRA) Lab at Ntrepid; Victor Shepardson, an artist and research engineer at Ntrepid; and Richie Bonett, a systems engineer at Verisign.

The latter category features a vintage 18kt gold lion mask ring having a gorgeous yellow gold lion face with emerald eyes and a full cut accent diamond in the mouth, 13.1 dwt (est. $1,200-$1,500); and an authentic Gucci 18kt white gold mesh ring with three rows of a flat mesh in 18kt white gold with a high polish, hallmarked on the interior, originally purchased from Mann Jewelers, with a 10.2 dwt (est. $900-$1,200).

The rings get even wilder with presentation examples that are up for bid. A 10kt yellow gold ring presented by FedEx as a Safe Driver award, with a full cut VS diamond in the center of about .25 carats and 30 points, and a dwt of 10, should gavel for $750-$950; and a 10kt yellow gold Interstate Battery racing ring, with a white gold center surrounded by small accent diamonds, having an approximate dwt of 18.5, ring size 10, carries a pre-sale estimate of $1,200-$1,500.

The Chanel name and logo have undeniable appeal and cachet. Two lots, both with $500-$1,000 estimates, are a Chanel yellow caviar Sevruga leather wallet on a chain clutch bag, with the distinct “CC” logo on the front flap, originally retailed for $2,000; and a vintage, circa 1960s Chanel quilted lambskin chain bucket with magnetic button clasp closure, gold hardware and gold chain link, showing the Chanel logo tassel with lambskin fringe, in very good condition.

A few other noteworthy lots are as follows, although there is much more to consider in the sale:

• A woven adjustable Victorian yellow gold and natural pearl ribbed bracelet centered by an enameled disc with a natural pearl center in a star mount (est. $1,500-$2,500).
• A pair of 14kt yellow gold, amethyst and diamond earrings, each one approximately 2 carats, with an emerald cut amethyst centered by 24 total diamonds (est. $1,500-$2,500).
• A 1950s-style Tiffany 14kt yellow gold and garnet pin of ribbed disc form, set with four prong set garnet stones, stamped “Tiffany & Co,”, weighing 12.10 g. (est. $800-$1,200).

Non-Profit Heart N Hands Expands to Increase Heart Health Awareness in Nashville

Heart N Hands’ goal is to educate young women with fun and interactive activities that encourage a heart healthy lifestyle.

The Nashville team is excited to help you learn how to live a heart healthy lifestyle.

Heart N Hands promotes heart health awareness through its virtual and in-person events!

The nonprofit trailblazer of heart health awareness aims to educate young women with fun and interactive activities that encourage a heart healthy lifestyle.

At Heart N Hands we create a positive environment so that transitioning to a lifestyle that embraces physical activity and a healthy diet is supportive and comfortable.”

— Cynthia Hunter-Johnson, BP, MA

NASHVILLE, TN, UNITED STATES , January 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Heart N Hands, the nonprofit trailblazer of heart health awareness, is excited to announce the expansion of its first affiliate chapter in Nashville, Tennessee. The 501 (c) 3 organization, founded in New Orleans, Louisiana by Essence Banks, aims to educate young women with fun and interactive activities that encourage a heart healthy lifestyle.

Cynthia Hunter-Johnson, BP, MA, will lead the Heart N Hands Nashville Chapter. A versatile philanthropist who has dedicated her knowledge and expertise to spreading awareness of heart health, Hunter-Johnson will coordinate events and programming in synergy with the organization's mission. She is joined by three members of the Nashville Advisory council, Annessa Cook, LPN, Dr. Nevonna Davis and Theresa Miller, MBA.

As heart disease continues to be the number one killer of women, Heart N Hands' goal is to spread awareness regarding heart disease prevention and overall health and to offer support and educational tools to act as a catalyst towards a healthy mind and body. "At Heart N Hands we create a positive environment so that transitioning to a lifestyle that embraces physical activity and a healthy diet is supportive and comfortable. Whether you want to begin your journey by eating healthier or trying different forms of exercise, we encourage and motivate you at the starting line," Hunter-Johnson says.

Through in-person and virtual exercise and yoga classes, cooking healthy demonstrations, grocery store tours, and food label education classes, Heart N Hands provides an array of opportunities for everyone to explore a heart healthy lifestyle. Popular virtual events that aim to encourage young girls and women include Energizing Morning Flow with Nina & Essence, A Peaceful Practice of Yoga, and Dance Your Heart Out Zumba.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Heart N Hands found innovative ways to continue its mission. In October 2020, it hosted its first annual 3-Day "Running for the HEART" Run/Walk 5K and partnered with No Kid Hungry to create "Fruit Friday", which provided over 400 grade school children fresh fruit and heart health education along with their school lunch. Other accomplishments include providing fitness instruction and heart health education to over 100 Girl Scouts in the Louisiana East Chapter who earned their “new” Heart N Hands "Love Your Heart" patch.

A heart disease survivor for 16 years, founder and president of the board Essence Banks started Heart N Hands when she realized heart disease could affect everyone. "When they told me I have heart disease. I thought it was impossible since I did not have any risk factors, I'm not overweight, I don't smoke and don’t have any of the typical heart disease risk factors. That's when I decided to educate young women, especially young girls. Our goal is to empower young girls to take their heart health in their hands by providing them with the heart related information, educational tools and support they need to maintain and sustain a heart healthy lifestyle," she says.

Heart N Hands partners with several organizations that share its focus to provide girls with important heart health and wellness information to improve the health of our communities. They have held educational seminars or events with the American Heart Association, WomenHeart (National Coalition of Women with Heart Disease), Girl Scouts, Girls on the Run, Kendra Scott, Links, Inc., college sororities, as well as various other nonprofit organizations. For more information about events, programming and to get involved visit www.heartnhands.org.
