WikiLinks for iPhone®/iPad®/iPod touch®

A New Way to Discover the World, Now Available on the App Store

GENEVA, November 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Boris Conforty, an independent developer, is launching WikiLinks, an application that offers an innovative way to browse through knowledge. When using WikiLinks, searching and learning become an entertaining multi-touch experience. Already over 300'000 downloads on the App Store.

WikiLinks gives you access to all of Wikipedia's many resources and more, in every language, including Simple English, from Wiktionary definitions to user-provided images, to the most relevant YouTube videos and Google search results; all in one intuitive interface.

Your path from one article to the next is represented as a series of interconnected flowers, where the petals are related articles selected by a smart algorithm. Toss the dice to try your luck and create an article bouquet.

Articles look gorgeous on your device's screen and support up to 60 fonts at any size.

Thanks to WikiLinks' state-of-the-art technology, original images are replaced with razor-sharp versions to make Wikipedia more beautiful than ever. Articles have an accompanying full-screen image gallery with thumbnails and captions. Pictures can be saved to the device.

WikiLinks offers 100% accessibility to those with impaired vision through the VoiceOver screen reader.

"Before a trip, or when I might be somewhere without cell network coverage, I "toss the dice" and download the whole article bouquet for offline browsing. The history feature allows me to browse previous searches and read articles whenever I wish", says Boris, the app developer.

Geolocation allows you to discover nearby points of interest and read articles about them.

You can print the articles and share your discoveries with your friends through Facebook, Twitter, mail, and text messages.

WikiLinks has been installed by 300'000 users in less than a week and has been ranked first in the Reference category in several countries. The application is 50% off for a limited time to celebrate its launch.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
