Spark Turns On 5G In Auckland And Offers A Glimpse Into The Future Of Smart Cities

Spark turned on 5G in downtown Auckland today and has
partnered with Auckland Transport (AT) to showcase some of
the latest in IoT (Internet of Things) technology and
demonstrate what the future could look like for Auckland’s
CBD with the power of 5G.

5G is expected to underpin
the widespread deployment of IoT technology with its
increased speeds, low latency (or lag) and reliability. To
bring this potential to life, Spark and AT have installed
IoT enabled infrastructure at Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter –
including 5G connected lighting, smart benches with charging
capability, smart bins, and parking sensors.

Spark
Technology Lead, Renee Mateparae said: “We are excited to
launch our commercial 5G network in downtown Auckland today,
building on the private network we have in place to support
Emirates Team New Zealand and the launch of Spark Race Zone
last month. Our partnership with AT is about helping bring
to life the significant contribution 5G and IoT will make in
addressing urban, economic and sustainability challenges
across the country.

“5G will eventually allow for
one million devices to be connected per square kilometre on
a continual basis1, generating data that will help
Governments, Councils and businesses respond quickly,
allocate resources wisely and plan for the future, which
will ultimately improve services and amenities for New
Zealanders.

“We know from existing research that IoT
applications can improve quality of life significantly by
saving us time, improving health and safety outcomes,
reducing environmental impact, and boosting social
connectedness and civic participation,2” said
Renee.

Smart lighting has been installed in the
surrounding streets of Wynyard Quarter’s Innovation
Precinct, which can now generate heat maps of foot traffic
to help AT identify any ‘choke points’ to better inform
future infrastructure investments, as well as monitor air

Comcast Offers Thousands of Grants, Equipment, Marketing and Technology Resources to Small Businesses Hardest Hit by COVID-19

Comcast RISE Initiative Provides Small Businesses with Free Marketing Insights and Opportunities to Apply for Media, Technology Upgrades and Grants Up To $10,000

Black-Owned Small Businesses, Those Impacted Most by the Pandemic, are the First Eligible Applicants for Comcast RISE Resources and Grants.

Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ: CMCSA) today launched Comcast RISE, an initiative created to help strengthen and empower small businesses hard hit by COVID-19. The Comcast RISE program will help thousands of small businesses over the next three years. The multi-faceted program offers grants, marketing and technology upgrades, including media campaigns and connectivity, computer and voice equipment, as well as free marketing insights to all applicants.

U.S. small businesses have been particularly hard hit by the pandemic. A recent study from the National Bureau of Economic Research found that the number of U.S. active business owners dropped from 15 million to 11.7 million from February to April. The study cited that Black-owned small businesses were hardest hit, suffering the steepest decline (41 percent), followed by Hispanic and Asian American-owned small businesses.

The program will roll out in waves, and starting today, U.S.-based Black-owned small businesses can apply for marketing and technology support and equipment to jumpstart and help them sustain business operations. In addition, all small businesses are able to sign up for free marketing insights and resources. The next wave of the program will open up eligibility to include Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), those next hit hardest by the effects of the pandemic.

“There’s this old saying, ‘When America catches a cold, black America catches pneumonia.’ Black Businesses, which never recovered from the great recession, have been ravaged by COVID-19 with Black-owned businesses twice as likely to close as their white counterparts. While many businesses have responded by moving online or retrofitting to allow for

In this book, Shahneila Saeed offers a fun and enlightening way to raise a technology genius

UK-based educator Shahneila Saeed’s new book ‘How To Raise a Tech Genius’ details the deeper technology we should learn and teach coming generations, and why we should not be intimidated

Machine architecture, the fetch-execute cycle, binary conversions, error-checking in encryption: how do you teach these heavy topics, typically featured in A-level or intermediate levels of schooling, to an 11 or 12 year-old? How To Raise A Tech Genius: Develop Your Child’s Computing Skills Without Spending Any Money (Hachette India) by Shahneila Saeed breaks this down for parents, students and teachers alike.

There are hundreds of books and films out in the world about how today’s and the future’s netizens should navigate social media. How To Raise A Tech Genius is about responsible rather than safe use. Shahneila, an educator of computing science, says, over a video call, “It is also about being able to prevent negative things from happening as well as how to respond should they happen. The book looks at humanitarian learning and ethics and things such as copyright.”

A skim through proves the book is neither textbook nor a self-help guide, but rather something entirely different. The London-based Shahneila, a mother of twin nine-year-old girls and also the Head of Education and Programme Director of Digital Schoolhouse at Ukie Logo, says she hopes the book bridges communication between parent and child, and engenders a healthier and more informed relationship with the deeper aspects of technology.

Progressive teaching

Shahneila toyed with the idea of the book years ago as an IT teacher for a large secondary and sixth form college. She admits that she was bored teaching and knew that the young people would
