Guía de Regalos

Coverage in Five Major Cities Begins Today

MIAMI & NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$AAPL #MarketWatch–Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. (NASDAQ: HMNY) and RedZone, creator
of the RedZone
Map
™ app, announced that they have completed beta testing and,
starting today, have begun a national rollout campaign with coverage
first in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco and Miami. The
RedZone program utilizes the Twitter feed to post worldwide, real-time
crime data, in collaboration with the India Institute of Technology
(IIT).


Abstract:

Further enhancing RedZone Map’s proprietary technology, RedZone Map will
now automatically source raw crime data from a major Twitter feed with
the potential for 80 million tweets daily, and drop corresponding crime
pins that display on RedZone’s map for the cities of New York, Los
Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco and Miami.

With the goal of using social listening to keep users aware of their
surroundings, RedZone plans to roll out this enhancement beyond the
initial cities. The enhanced RedZone Map application is currently
available free from Google Play. RedZone Map goes beyond real-time crime
reporting, offering safer navigation to steer users away from riskier
routes.

Twitter feeds come in from all over the world, many about crime and
terrorism. RedZone will be processing up to 80 million tweets daily,
with its technology displaying these threats on RedZone Map in real-time
– crime that is happening that very moment. If news of a shooting in
Chicago comes across the Twitter feed, RedZone Map now drops a
corresponding pin with that information on the map, allowing users to be
more aware of their surroundings in real-time. If there is terrorist
activity that posts through the feed, users are immediately advised as
well. A prime example is the most recent terrorist attack that occurred
in London. During the beta test period, RedZone Map was able to monitor
real-time Twitter traffic, sourcing the Twitter raw data and enabling
the app to acquire current news and information live from the scene.

“This is a game changer for RedZone,” said Ted Farnsworth, founder of
RedZone. “The combination of the Twitter feed and our own internal
proprietary social listening technology will enable us to bring one of
the most sophisticated crime databases to our users, literally making it
available at their fingertips.”

“This groundbreaking technology is now a part of RedZone Map,” said
Dharanipragada Janakiram, PhD, professor in the Department of Computer
Science and Engineering at IIT Madras, who is spearheading this project.
“I am very pleased with our findings and our ability to source this Big
Data efficiently and quickly creating a seamless transaction for the
RedZone Map user. This is extraordinary, and next we plan to tie the
RedZone Map platform with its artificial intelligence technology in an
effort to predict crime.”
