NYPD used this Robot to Video chat with Hoax Bomber

NYPD used this Robot to Video chat with Hoax Bomber | Technology in Business Today | Scoop.it
This is the robot used by the NYPD to negotiate with the suicidal hoax bomber in Columbus Circle during the tense six-hour standoff with cops overnight.



Police brass initially deployed the robot to communicate with suicidal Queens resident Hector Meneses, who stayed mum behind the wheel of his Chrysler Aspen.

The robot then peered inside the vehicle to survey the interior for any potential bombs, sending a live feed to police officials with streaming video, cops said.

Officials spotted what appeared to be a pressure cooker bomb in the trunk.

That prompted Emergency Service officers to finally move in and pepper-spray Meneses, 52, and take him into custody, sources said.

Police robots are becoming a new favorite tool used by police departments across the country.

Most recently, the Dallas Police Department deployed a robot packed with 1 pound of C4 to take out cop-killer Micah Xavier Johnson in a garage after a four-hour-plus standoff on July 8.

The Big Deal About Big Data for Small Business

The Big Deal About Big Data for Small Business | Technology in Business Today | Scoop.it
[...] with all of the data sources that entrepreneurs have available, what are the promises -- and potential pitfalls -- for small business owners? To come up with a strategy and process for small business owners to make the most from big data, I talked to customer-centric, data-driven strategic marketer Marina Erulkar, founder and principal of Hampstead Solutions LLC. A new business may have a near-term customer acquisition goal, for example, but needs a longer-term objective to double the revenue from those acquired customers. With these defined objectives, including their timing, the company may focus on acquisition until it reaches its first milestone and then, focus on customer growth exclusively or in parallel. The business has the time to assess its CRM (customer relationship management) systems, ensuring customer interaction is captured and to instruct its client management team to collect and enter certain information. Defining and collecting the data that supports anticipated, essential intelligence needs to happen in advance so that progress is not slowed, interrupted, or driven off course. Use KPIs, metrics relevant to your objectives.Marina advocates prudent KPI (key performance indicators) and metric selection, because these numbers will be the basis for significant insights and decisions. [...] the selected metrics must describe progress to the intended goal. [...] metrics supporting customer acquisition goals could include message response (opens and clicks), awareness (website traffic and page view duration), conversion costs (cost per click, cost to acquire, etc.) and, of course, sales (products and revenue). [...] if a small business works within a subscription model, they will additionally focus on CMRR (committed monthly recurring revenue) and the renewal rate. [...] if sales cycle data includes only converted customers, and does not include unsuccessful or unfinished sales efforts, the dataset is incomplete. [...] for a small business, a downward pricing spiral can be a death spiral, so examining other factors contributing to the result (such as below-average product feedback that reduces perceived value) may be a logical, and more valuable, next step. With sound decisions based on analytic insights, small businesses are in a better position to seize recognized opportunity given their size and the speed with which they can adapt.
