What is hiSchoolBook?

hiSchoolBook is a web platform to generate, distribute and use educational content personalized to each student.
hiSchoolBook is based upon open source content and aims to be the Wikipedia of educational tools.

Business Model

We want schools and teachers that contribute to hiSchoolBook's growth, to benefit in equal measure to its profits.
hiSchoolBook's business model is based on profit reditribution with schools.
The only way to develop an economically sustainable platform is to ensure that any collaboration is rewarded.

Origins

Since early 2012, we have been working hand-in-hand with the Jesuit school "Nuestra Señora del Recuerdo" in Madrid, defining the best technological solution for a more modern education system. This year we will launch hiSchoolBook.

After studying the available technologies, their rapid evolution and constant change, we decided to develop a platform open to all devices (past, present and future), based on a web standard, HTML5. We call this hiSchoolBook.

Advantages of hiSchoolBook:

  • Concerning the rapid evolution of hardware (PC's, tablets, etc) >> hiSchoolBook works with all systems: Old, modern, cheap and expensive.
  • Concerning the constant format change >> hiSchoolBook is based on HTML5, the most modern web standard.

Objectives

  • Educate and Work using the latest of technology.
  • Reuse knowledge generated throughout the ages.
  • Create an education system based on collaboration and participation.
  • Systainable through time, where schools, teachers and students benefit.

LIFEOnLive

HI iberia has developed . It is a surveillance solution based on cutting-edge video-streaming technologies for mobile devices. In addition, we have added some additional capabilities, such as the identity recognition based on biometric traits, using facial features, and the information aggregation from different sensors (position -GPS-, 'dead man' -accelerometers-, etc.)

is being deployed on two scenarios:

112-Emergency Service overview

LIFEOnLive with the Police

Using nothing goes unnoticed. Everything which is happening at this moment could be being monitored and controlled by the competent authority. If a robbery is being carried out, if someone shows a gun in a demonstration or a suspect with an arrest warrant turns out, then will fire the alarm and will help to manage the suitable resources. Thanks to the video streaming technologies through mobile devices and the pattern recognition algorithms, it is possible to detect those events which could be unnoticed by a human observer. Distraction will not be an excuse to leave an offence unpunished.

Through an economic mobile device with camera and connectivity (3G or wifi), the security authorities could activate the video surveillance service. Easily, using a specialized wearable system, the agents patrol the zone of interest and would stream the video and would alert of dangerous situations.

Capabilities

The platform on which is running is totally adaptable and it could be integrated on the great variety of running environments which are found on command and control centres. Thus, HI iberia would be able to adapt the platform functionalities to the client needs. For example:

  • Sending video in real time from mobile devices to centralized servers
  • Integration of communication gateways into police or emergency vehicles in order to improve the streaming of video at those areas with low mobile coverage.
  • Direct connection with control infrastructures which are already deployed or sending alerts to third party services.
  • Visualization of multiple video sources on a single screen. If some trained event or specific object is detected then an alarm will be triggered to warn about it.
  • Real-time information about the location where the video is being recorded.
  • Integration of pattern recognition algorithms (i.e. biometrics, artificial vision) using the video streaming. Currently the following technologies are supported:
    • Identification by means of facial features.
    • Search of potentially dangerous objects (e.g. guns).
    • Detection of anomalous events, such as fallen agents.

Technology

To make come true, HI iberia has carried out R&D from several cutting-edge technologies regarding the security and computer vision fields. Some of them are:

  • The use of smartphones to stream real-time video through standard mobile networks (WiFi or 3G).
  • Pattern recognition algorithms to identify/detect faces and objects.
  • Cloud computing platform to efficiently process the video streaming and manage its storage and distribution.
  • Customized website to configure the system as well as the information visualization:
    • Configuration of alarms triggering (e.g. thresholds, suspect database, etc.)
    • Displaying stored videos with associated information: GPS coordinates, device detection, context-aware information through sensors and real-time alarms.

LIFEOnLive 112

Every authorized citizen could inform about an event or emergency which is happening at this moment. If these 'improvised' watchman are witness to a crime or a disaster, then they would contact with the emergency centre using . The video streaming through their own mobile phones, and the sensor data (i.e. GPS and accelerometers) give a valuable information to assign and coordinate the resources which attend to this event.

lets visualize these events on real-time, from the control centre and thus, be ready to deal with the situation.

LIFEonLive BigData

The LIFEonLive with the Police and LIFEonLive 112-Emergency platforms produce large amounts of information; real-time video and smartphone sensor data from each Police officer:

  • Location Sensors: GPS, A-GPS.
  • Position and Movement Sensors: Accelerometers(x,y,z), Gyroscope, Compass, Proximity.
  • Environmental Sensors: Temperature, Humidity, Pressure, Luminosity.

HI Iberia offers the techonology to store, process and visualize this information allowing our clients more than a cursory glance.

Visualization for Big Data is specially important, due to the fact that large volumes of data needs to be shown to users. The technology developed by HI Iberia, allows intelligent visualizations, where the user can easily find information correlation.

HI Iberia has developed algorithms to find, identify and show the information that is really relevant. Offering tools with which users can build predictive models, capable of inferring future behaviours based on past data.

HI Iberia presents a use case where data generated by the platform is processed and presented over a map of San Francisco. A correlation is made between the activity and the data generated by the security officers, and the city's criminality information. Searching for "crime hotspots", why they are so and how to prevent them in future.

Semantic Technologies

Semantic Technologies

The company has implemented a semantic notation and consultation system based on free software that enables conceptual search in museum catalogues, libraries, newspaper archives etc. The search engine enables automatic conversion of notations, thus facilitating semantic filing.

This software is of interest to institutions wishing to optimise users' experience and to partners desiring to collaborate with new functions.

The features currently implemented carry out the following functions:

Semantic search based on concepts rather than on key words. This search can be made on the basis of all terms and properties associated with the ontology defining the semantic environment or, if so desired, can be specified according to particular elements.

Manual insertion of new content by institutional cataloguers.

Ontology-based automatic document mapping of meta-information stored in existing content filing systems of any institution.
