Web Site Design by Cambium Group Wins Awards

first_imgCambium Group, LLC, a leading web site development firm specializing in innovative web site designs and content management systems has developed a nationally recognized web site for Telephone Credit Union (TCU) of Manchester, New Hampshire. The Telephone Credit Union site, www.tcu.org(link is external), recently received two individual awards for web site design and production.The first award, from the CUNA Marketing and Business Development Council (CMC) recognizes TCU’s web site with the “Merit Award” in the Internet Marketing category. Entries in the CMC’s 2003 Diamond Awards were judged by nationally acclaimed credit union marketers, based on criteria such as strategy, creative concept, design, copy, and results. The CMC is a national network of Credit Union marketing and business development professionals.Telephone Credit Union also received the 2003 Silver Web Site Award from the Marketing Association of Credit Unions (MAC). Each year, during the MAC Annual Conference, members have the opportunity to compete for the coveted MAC Marketing Awards. Winners of these awards receive national recognition through credit union trade publications. MAC Marketing Award winners are selected by a panel of judges with extensive background in credit unions and marketing. Results, production quality, and creative design are considered in the selection process. Since 1986, the Marketing Association of Credit Unions has been recognized as the preferred trade association for credit union marketing professionals.”It’s an honor to have received these awards. We see the success of our site daily through the way our members and prospects use the site and conduct business. But it is always neat to have other marketers acknowledge the planning and thought that went into the development of the site.” stated Nathan Saller, TCU’s Vice President of Marketing.last_img read more

DARPA Envisions the Future of Machine Learning

first_img The PPAML program is scheduled to run 46 months, with three phases of activity from 2013 to 2017. Fisher believes a successful solution will involve contributions from many areas, including statistics and probabilistic modeling, approximation algorithms, machine learning, programming languages, program analysis, compilers, high-performance software, and parallel and distributed computing. By Dialogo April 03, 2013 “Our goal is that future machine learning projects won’t require people to know everything about both the domain of interest and machine learning to build useful machine learning applications. Through new probabilistic programming languages specifically tailored to probabilistic inference, we hope to decisively reduce the current barriers to machine learning and foster a boom in innovation, productivity and effectiveness.” Email spam filters, smartphone personal assistants and self-driving vehicles are all based on research advances in machine learning. Unfortunately, even as the demand for these capabilities is accelerating, every new application requires a Herculean effort. Even a team of specially-trained machine learning experts makes only painfully slow progress due to the lack of tools to build these systems. “We want to do for machine learning what the advent of high-level program languages 50 years ago did for the software development community as a whole,” said Kathleen Fisher, DARPA program manager. center_img To familiarize potential participants with the technical objectives of PPAML, DARPA will host a Proposers’ Day on Wednesday, April 10, 2013. For details, visit: http://www.solers.com/BAAinfo-reg/ppaml. Registration closes on Friday, April 5, 2013 at 5 p.m. ET. The Probabilistic Programming for Advanced Machine Learning (PPAML) program was launched to address this challenge. Probabilistic programming is a new programming paradigm for managing uncertain information. By incorporating it into machine learning, PPAML seeks to greatly increase the number of people who can successfully build machine learning applications and make machine learning experts radically more effective. Moreover, the program seeks to create more economical, robust and powerful applications that need less data to produce more accurate results – features inconceivable with today’s technology. Machine learning – the ability of computers to understand data, manage results, and infer insights from uncertain information – is the force behind many recent revolutions in computing. last_img read more

COVID-19: Rangers supporters kick against declaring Plateau United NPFL champions

first_imgRangers International Football Club Supporters Club has urged the League Management Company to ensure the completion of 2019/2020 Nigeria Professional Football League immediately after coronavirus pandemic to determine the real winner.Ibuchukwu Nwodo, the Chairman of the club, said this while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria in Enugu on Saturday. Nwodo said it would be unfair to end the league midway.The league was suspended on March 18 due to COVID-19.Nwodo said the circumstance which led to the league suspension was not what somebody should take advantage of.He said: “I do not buy the idea of ending Nigerian league with Plateau United FC as the champions.“Hearing the General Manager of Plateau United asking the League Management Company to declare them champions after playing 25 matches when other clubs played below 25 matches, proved that they are not fit to be the real champion. “Plateau United was among the few clubs that have played 25 matches out of 38 matches with 13 remaining, while some clubs played 21, 23 and 24 matches as the case may be.“Thirteen to 17 outstanding matches per club are much to be swept under the carpet.”Nwodo urged the LMC and the Nigeria Football Federation to consult FIFA on the issue.He said: “FIFA has been working out modalities on how to fast track the league globally after the coronavirus pandemic.“The modalities, including having three breaks in a match and five changes in a match, are enough to play three matches in a week.” Nwodo said the LMC and NFF would not be fair to Rangers FC if they declare Plateau United winners of the league.He said: “We lost our prolific striker Ifeanyi George to a fatal accident while traveling home after NPFL announced suspension of our league.“Had it been that the league was on, Rangers management will not give them the break and he would he will not have thought of travelling.“It is better to finish the league to determine the true champions so that we can save our face at the continental contest come next season.”RelatedPosts COVID-19: NCAA to revoke erring airlines licence over non-compliance FRSC to Schools: We’ll arrest, prosecute drivers who flout COVID-19 rules Sanwo-Olu: We’re committed to fulfilling promises to Lagosians NAN.Tags: COVID-19NPFL ChampionsPlateau UnitedRangers International Football Clubsupporters clublast_img read more
