Helios and Matheson Analytics and Zone Technologies Appoint Dr. E. G. Rajan, Pioneer in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Learning Disciplines, To Chair Science & Technology Development Board

Predictive Vision Expected to Revolutionize RedZone Map’s Crime Data
Reporting and Big Data Analytics

MIAMI & NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$AAPL #MarketWatch–Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. (NASDAQ: HMNY) and its wholly-owned
subsidiary, Zone Technologies Inc. (“Zone”), creator of the RedZone Map
app, announced today that Dr. E. G. Rajan, esteemed professor and
research scientist, will be joining the organization as founding member
and Chairman of its Science & Technology Development Board.

As Founder and President of the Pentagram Research Centre in Hyderabad,
India, Dr. Rajan was presented the Gold Medal for his lifetime
achievement in Teaching, Research and Industrial Development by former
Indian President, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, in 2015. HMNY and Zone expect Dr.
Rajan’s groundbreaking research in the fields of artificial intelligence
and machine learning and his current impact on the field of computer
vision to significantly enhance the functionality and reach of RedZone
Map, merging RedZone Map’s currently available real time crime data
reporting and safer navigation features with data science and technology.

RedZone Map expects to gain an immeasurable advantage from this liaison.
Dr. Rajan is a leader in the field of computer vision, a discipline that
“teaches” computers to gain insight and understanding enabling them to
extract data from the “real world” for which they produce numeric or
symbolic information. As a result, HMNY and Zone expect that Dr. Rajan’s
expertise will enable RedZone Map to further analyze, forecast and
present its crime data to users in a way never before possible.

Dr. Rajan has authored multiple books including Symbolic Computing –
Signal and Image Processing, Electronic Order of Battle Records of
Military Radars, Computers and Information Technology and Foundations of
Information Technology.

“When I first developed RedZone Map, I saw it as an advanced crime data
visualization tool for users to enhance their personal safety and come
together to take back their communities,” said Ted Farnsworth, Chairman
of the Board of HMNY. “But now, with Dr. Rajan’s input in the area of
machine learning, the app is taking on a life of its own, engaging
scientific principles and merging them with the safety concerns of our
users to create a more dynamic and responsive solution. This
metamorphosis is amazing to me. Getting the app to this point was on my
wish list, but now with Dr. Rajan’s input, it is coming to fruition.”

“When we initially looked at RedZone Map, we immediately recognized that
it had great potential and reach,” said Pat Krishnan, CEO of HMNY. It is
no surprise to me that its ongoing development has brought us to this
point, attracting a world class scientist with Dr. E. G. Rajan’s
credentials. We know the app and I know the man, as I am privileged to
have him as my mentor. I believe having Dr. Rajan join us as the
founding member and Chair of our Science & Technology Development Board
will allow RedZone Map to achieve the scientific importance it
rightfully deserves.”

“The unpredictable, yet scientifically explainable is what has steered
my career over 35 years.” Said Dr. Rajan. I see the impending inclusion
of scientific principles into RedZone Map’s technology as less of a task
and more as a labor of love. I look forward to continuing with Mr.
Farnsworth and Mr. Krishnan in developing the app’s scientific potential
and bringing that achievement to users around the world.”
