VANCOUVER, BC, May 2, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — With integration of AI-powered computing steadily on the rise, analysts at Goldman Sachs Research are projecting that the global data center power behind this tech boom is poised to more than double by 2030. However, the catch is that Goldman’s teach believes that the supporting data center load growth will require at least $50 billion in new power generation capacity investment to achieve this. Experts are now declaring that ‘futuristic AI needs futuristic data centers’ in order to achieve the dreams of developers and end-users. According to WhaTech, the growth for data centers markets is surging, projecting the Modular Data Center Market to grow at a CAGR of 17.8% to $55 billion by 2030, while the Data Center Infrastructure Management Market is set to grow even faster at a 20.73% CAGR over the same time frame. Behind the scenes, several players are jockeying for position in the data center arena, including new developments coming from Avant Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: AVAI), International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) (NYSE: IBM), Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC), Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: MU), and Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN).

Having established itself as one of the earliest companies to bring a generative AI to market is Avant Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: AVAI), which earlier this year expanded its scope for its flagship AvantAI platform, further enhancing its latest developments in high-performance data center infrastructure. Now more recently, Avant has announced its plans to implement AI-empowered, Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) across its data center operations.
“By integrating AI with Zero Trust Architecture, we are creating a robust and future-proof security framework for our data centers,” said newly-appointed CEO of Avant, William Hisey. “This combined approach ensures the highest level of security for our customers’ data while optimizing data center operations for efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Avant is committed to providing innovative technology to help businesses optimize data center operations, improve resource utilization, and enhance security.”
Hisey was named as Avant’s new CEO, as he and his expertise came along with the company’s recent acquisition in early April of privately-held healthcare tech and data integration services firm, Wired-4-Health, where he spent the last 13 years as CFO. Bringing to Avant his 25 years of experience, Hisey’s mission as the new CEO is to position Avant financially to continue its AI data center infrastructure development plans, and the company’s overall growth in the burgeoning AI industry.
“Avant has been methodically building a company that can compete in the AI space in an area of great need, and I am excited to join the team at this crucial point in the Company’s development,” said Hisey of his appointment.
Also looking to bolster advancement in data management is International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) (NYSE: IBM). The computing company has recently made several moves to enhance the AI and data center experience, expanding its team in Canada’s largest software development lab, signing an agreement to strengthen Canada’s semiconductor industry, and announcing new storage capabilities through an option called IBM Storage Assurance.
Recent findings from TechTarget’s Enterprise Strategy Group indicate that 48% of companies plan to boost their IT budgets in 2024. Concurrently, IBM has observed that organizations are seeking ways to optimize their spending while maintaining performance.
“Our research indicates that IT organizations are looking for greater flexibility in how they acquire and sustain their storage,” said Simon Robinson, Principal Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group, part of TechTarget. “IBM’s Storage Assurance program is designed to provide ongoing hardware and software upgrades while also offering budget certainty. With IBM providing this additional level of support for their storage systems, organizations can focus on their business priorities.”
Industry-leading tech developers Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC) recently reported their Q1 2024 results, shortly after announcing the company had built the world’s largest neuromorphic system, code-named Hala Point. Intel believes they have a serious shot at competing in the AI chip marketplace, with its Intel Gaudi 3 AI accelerator.
” Strong innovation across our client, edge and data center portfolios drove double-digit revenue growth in Intel Products,” said Pat Gelsinger, CEO of Intel. “With Intel 3 in high-volume production, leading-edge semiconductors are being manufactured in the U.S. for the first time in almost a decade and we are on track to regain process leadership next year as we grow Intel Foundry. We are confident in our plans to drive sequential growth throughout the year as we accelerate our AI solutions and maintain our relentless focus on execution, operational discipline and shareholder value creation in a dynamic market.”
With the advent of Hala Point, Intel aims to support research for future brain-inspired AI, and to tackle challenges related to efficiency and sustainability in today’s AI rollouts. Hala Point advances Intel’s first-generation large-scale research system, Pohoiki Springs, with architectural improvements to achieve over 10 times more neuron capacity and up to 12 times higher performance.
“The computing cost of today’s AI models is rising at unsustainable rates,” said Mike Davies, Director of the Neuromorphic Computing Lab at Intel Labs. “The industry needs fundamentally new approaches capable of scaling. For that reason, we developed Hala Point, which combines deep learning efficiency with novel brain-inspired learning and optimization capabilities. We hope that research with Hala Point will advance the efficiency and adaptability of large-scale AI technology.”
Industry leading innovative memory and storage solutions provider Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: MU) recently announced it has began shipping its high-capacity monolithic 32Gb DRAM die-based 128Gb DDR5 RDIMM memory in speeds up to 5,600 MT/s on all leading server platforms. The new product delivers more than 45% improved bit density, up to 22% improved energy efficiency and up to 16% lower latency over competitive 3DS through-silicon via (TSV) products.
“With this latest volume shipment milestone, Micron continues to lead the market in providing high-capacity RDIMMs that have been qualified on all the major CPU platforms to our customers,” said Praveen Vaidyanathan, Vice President and General

Courageous Whistleblowers Reclaim Derogatory Terms As Data Shows 80% of Financial Professionals Stay Silent on Suspected Internal Fraud, Fearing Retaliation

Published

courageous-whistleblowers-reclaim-derogatory-terms-as-data-shows-80%-of-financial-professionals-stay-silent-on-suspected-internal-fraud,-fearing-retaliation

Enron whistleblower, Sherron Watkins, alongside stars of Apple TV’s The Big Conn, Sarah Carver and Jennifer Griffith, reclaim derogatory labels for whistleblowers          Concerning new data shows more than half of financial professionals in the UK and US have spotted or suspected internal fraud in their workplaces, yet four out of five stay silent fearing retaliation          32% of professionals in finance have seen whistleblowers victimized behind their back or to their faceJACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 21, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — New data from fraud detection software company Medius shows more than half of financial professionals in the UK and US (56%) have spotted or suspected internal fraud in their workplaces yet four in five (81%) stayed silent. When asked why, 45% of professionals cited the fear of recrimination.

Whistleblowers Sherron Watkins, Sarah Carver and Jennifer Griffith have joined forces to reclaim the derogatory names they were called after reporting serious internal financial fraud.
To help empower others to come forward, the whistleblowers are reclaiming the terms “snitch”, “rat” and “traitor”.
Sherron Watkins is the former Vice President of Enron Corporation who alerted the CEO to accounting irregularities, warning the organization “‘might implode in a wave of accounting scandals.” Watkins received national acclaim for her courageous actions and TIME magazine named her along with two others as their Persons of the Year in 2002, calling them simply ‘The Whistleblowers.’
Sarah Carver and Jennifer Griffith are the stars of Apple TV’s The Big Conn after they exposed a fraud scheme of more than $550 million while employed at the Social Security Administration. In efforts to silence their disclosures, they experienced multiple acts of severe retaliation and were denied protection. Ultimately, both Carver and Griffith were forced from employment.
Concerns of repercussions are vindicated – the survey reveals the extent to which financial professionals in the UK and US have witnessed negative consequences for whistleblowers firsthand:           
59% have seen whistleblowers subsequently left out of important decisions           33% have seen whistleblowers moved to a different team           32% have heard whistleblowers called derogatory names behind their backs or directly to their faceWhen asked what would encourage them to flag suspicious activity, 93% of workers surveyed would feel more comfortable doing so if they had more evidence, yet nearly half (48%) said the legal system simply does not adequately protect whistleblowers.
Jim Lucier, CEO at Medius, a leading global provider of cloud-based accounts payable automation and spend management solutions, said:
“White collar crime is on the rise and no organization is safe. Employees are the last line of defense against fraud but confidence to report suspicious activity is declining. AI anomaly-detection technology can provide employees with the evidence and assurances they need to be more forthcoming. Building a culture where employees feel comfortable to report their suspicions could save organizations millions in the long-run.”
Medius works with over 4,000 customers across 102 countries and processes $200 billion in annual spend. It uses the power of AI and automation to detect fraud the moment invoices are submitted safeguarding against bad actors and potential threats, internal and external.
Sherron Watkins, whistleblower who was called a “snitch”, said: “When someone is troubled by corporate wrongdoing and they attempt to sound the alarm, the pathway is uncharted, things happen organically. Normal rational people speak about their concerns with their closest friends and work colleagues, who often suggest staying safe saying “keep your head down, if you must report, go soft, nothing black and white.” Yet black and white evidence is what is needed to get the attention of those in power, either internally or with media or outside watchdog groups to prevent or stop fraudulent activity.”  
Jennifer Griffith, whistleblower who was called a “traitor”, said: “Choosing to blow the whistle involves more than just the desire to right a wrong.  It’s about protecting their employers from fraud. However, it’s more often than not seen as causing trouble for the employer, or as a self-serving action to get a financial reward. No one who chooses to blow the whistle expects to have their reputation attacked, their credibility impugned or to lose their job. The cost of ignoring a whistleblowers complaints are far greater than acknowledging that a problem exists and taking steps to fix it.  It’s been 19 years since I blew the whistle and the problems that existed then with the Social Security Administration still exist today. We must do more to protect whistleblowers.”
Sarah Carver, whistleblower who was called a “rat”, said: “The government’s attempt to conceal the fraud resulted in exacerbated damage, whereas a more prudent approach would have entailed immediate acknowledgement and rectification upon initial disclosure. The retaliatory measures aimed at silencing me made me stronger and fight harder to find someone to listen and stop the fraud.”
Georgina Hallford-Hall, CEO of Whistleblowers UK, said: “Too many organisations talk the talk but fail to engage with whistleblowers often at great cost to both. Technology used properly can remove the fear that both organisations and whistleblowers have about dealing with whistleblowing because it removes the person and focuses on the concerns or malfeasance. WhistleblowersUK are calling on the UK government to introduce an Independent Office of the Whistleblower to protect everyone from discrimination setting standards that end stigmatisation and discrimination making it safe to speak up.”
The billboard advertising campaign runs on Wall Street from Saturday, 18th May to Friday, 24th May 2024.
