Crocro Adventure is inspiration for article
May 25

The knowledge and experience gained during the development of the Crocro Adventure application gave rise to an article - "Kids Block Coding Game: A game to introduce logic to kids of up to eleven years old" - that will be presented at the 26th Workshop on Education in Computing (WEI), one of the events that compose the programming of the Congresso da Sociedade Brasileira de Computação (SBC). scheduled for July 22-26, this year's edition of the SBC congress will be held in Natal (RN) and will have the theme Computing and Sustainability.

"The development process of Crocro Adventure has been marked by some interesting happenings," says Luís Eduardo Thibes Forquesato, from SIDI's Global Solutions team, who had the initiative to elaborate the article - with the collaboration of his master's degree instructor at Unicamp. Graduated in Computer Engineering, Thibes chose as master's theme the use of games and applications to develop computational thinking (concepts of sequence, logic, etc.). And, as part of the development team, had the opportunity to participate in the entire process, which began in January 2017, with the ideation of the application.

"During the development of the first version of the game, which was completed in September, we did a series of tests with children, which resulted in important feedback," says Thibes. "These results are described in the article, which also details the development process and presents the features and functionality of the application," he adds.

SIDI prepares for new European data protection law
May 22

The Knox Platform's licensing mechanisms are already in preparation for the new law that regulates the protection of personal data of European citizens - General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will come into effect on May 25. To that end, the SIDI Security team worked closely with Samsung to evaluate the new rules and implemented the software requirements to support them.

With over 300 pages, new European legislation sets standards for the processing of private customer data by companies. And while focusing on data protection for Europe's citizens, GDPR is expected to affect all companies that have business on that continent - and they may face heavy fines if they fail to comply with the new guidelines.

The law has three pillars: transparency, management and governance. One of the issues addressed in the governance pillar, for example, concerns the leaking of an organization's customer data. According to GDPR, any failure should be reported to the affected person within 72 hours. In the transparency pillar, the new law states, among other things, that anyone has the right to suspend their consent to the processing of personal data by a company, or to request a copy of their data stored in a service provider. In addition, GDPR authorizes European citizens to request the exclusion of their personal data from the records of an organization

The first round happened in December and involved 12 people. On the second round, in April, the tests involved another 12 people, those who used Galaxy S8 devices and Gear VR googles with remote control.

Tatiane explains that the application, named Relúmino, uses the cellphone camera to capture the images and the Gear VR to set up the many functionalities, which are intended to help people with low vision in their daily tasks. “The tests had as goal two functions: the Zoom, which allows enlarge the picture in up to 8 times, and the Auto Contrast, that inserts white letters over a dark background, facilitating the reading”, she adds.

Innovation, a strategic area within SIDI
March 23

Since it was created, SIDI has maintained a strategic position in the scenario of developing innovative solutions. Its skills are recognized by the market, which has been seeking this experience and ability to innovate to add ever more value to new products. In 2018, SIDI aims to strengthen its brand and its identity.

For this, the area of Innovation and its initiatives - with emphasis on lado.b - have a fundamental role of stimulating new ideas, entrepreneurship and support projects and protection of intellectual property. Get to know the news programmed by the Innovation team of SIDI in this interview granted by Maura Delgado and Mateus Leme Pazini:

What are the innovations in the area of Innovation for 2018?

Maura - The two main initiatives in our area come back in April, with some great news. SIDI Talks continues in the same format, but the intention is increasingly to bring guests out for the presentations. We had a special session in March, taking advantage of an opportunity and a specific demand. But SIDI Talks returns officially on April 6, with talks every Friday at 10 a.m. in the auditorium. In April, specifically, the sessions will be more focused on supporting the new edition campaign on the lado.b.

Mateus - For SIDI Talks, it should be remembered that in the first year of the initiative, in 2016, all presentations were from SIDI workers. The objective was to share information and knowledge of some experts in certain areas, as well as show the work of the various teams. Last year we started inviting some outsiders, such as universities and other companies as well. By 2018, the idea is to bring even more outsiders. For this, we did an internal research, at the beginning of the year, to raise some suggestions and areas of interest.

In this survey did you find specific topics of interest to this audience?

Mateus - Yes, the areas of greatest interest pointed out in the research were Artificial Intelligence and IoT. In addition to these, the areas of security and business development also arouse great interest in SIDI.

And the lado.b, can you share some details?

Mateus - Like the SIDI Talks, the lado.b is going to its third year. It began in 2016 with the objective of promoting innovation and entrepreneurship in SIDI, seeking to convert ideas into projects. In the first year, the projects had a stronger focus on new. In 2017, that changed a bit: at the beginning, work continued to have new technologies as a focus, but, especially at the end of the year, we look back at SIDI.

Maura - In 2016, we had an important result. A patent written in 2014 came to the lado.b as a design possibility and, at the end of the cycle, had the pilot presented at Samsung's event. The project continues in development to this day.

How many projects were in 2017?

Mateus - There were five projects. One of them started in 2016 and continued with a new name. Three of the five projects have evolved: one, related to safety, has aroused the interest of a company in the area and there is the possibility of a joint pilot test with it, another has interest of Samsung itself, and a third, which is a little more technological, is being worked on in our laboratory - and should be demonstrated in April in a section of SIDI Talks.

And what changes in 2018?

Mateus - This year, Innovation team is working together with the New Business area. The intention is to select a smaller number of projects, aiming, at the end of the cycle, to have a product with SIDI brand.

Will it start in April with SIDI Talks?

Maura - Yes, the kick-off on the 2018.b side will be on April 6.

Mateus - The keynote address will address issues such as entrepreneurship, branding, latest projects and the terms for the new cycle. For the 27th, the presentation of the pitches for the proposals sent is scheduled. In the other weeks, we intend to schedule lectures related to entrepreneurship. And in one of them, present the results of the last edition and the evolution of some projects.

What is the deadline for people to submit bids and the duration of b side this year?

Mateus - According to the schedule, proposals must be submitted between 6 and 20 April. From 20 to 27, when the pitches will happen, the teams interested should finalize the material to present to the jurors.

Maura - The expected duration is 7 to 8 months. The projects will start in May and the final presentation will take place between the end of November and the beginning of December.

In addition to these two initiatives, what is the other innovation duties?

Maura - We also have responsibility for the management of the intellectual property of the technologies developed in SIDI, which is mainly through the filing of patent applications.

Mateus - As of March, we have accumulated 46 patent application processes. Out of this total, 18 patents were granted - 17 at the USPTO, the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and one at the National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI). The INPI patent, granted in January, was the first obtained by SIDI in Brazil for a project developed for Samsung (in partnership with the UFC - Federal University of Ceará).

In March, we filed another patent application filing at the INPI and had another patent granted at the USPTO. The patent application filed in Brazil - is also being filed in the United States. The patent granted at the USPTO is entitled "Method for User Context Recognition Using Sound Signatures (Sound Awareness)".

Maura - It is important to emphasize SIDI's effort to value innovation, with the protection of intellectual property. Therefore, it is necessary for people to think about this protection during the development of their projects. The Innovation team is here to support this process. Our activities also include the review of all papers signed by SIDI employees for presentation at conferences, congresses and workshops - which is growing every year. This is also a way of making sure that nothing that needs protection is escaping.

Accessibility Guide: topic of lecture at IPT event
March 20

The Accessibility Guide - result of an extensive work carried out by SIDI in partnership with the UFPE - Federal University of Pernambuco and the support of Samsung - was the theme of one of the lectures of the Digital Access Challenges event promoted by IPT - Institute of Technological Research, on March 20, in São Paulo. The presentation was made by Marcelo dos Anjos, one of the responsible for this work, in the lecture "Guide to Mobile Accessibility: A way for the development of accessible mobile applications".

"It was another opportunity to promote the Guide, its features and requirements, and discuss issues related to accessibility in smartphones," says Marcelo. He says that the invitation to the talk at the IPT came from another presentation, made recently at an event in Campinas. "This shows that people are getting interested in this subject and wanting to know more about mobility accessibility," concludes Marcelo.

About the event at the IPT, he highlights the presence of Cid Torquato, Secretary of the Municipal Secretary of the Person with Disabilities of São Paulo, and the presentation of the Digital Accessibility Seal, made by the team of the Permanent Commission for Accessibility of the city of São Paulo. "This label will be released in May, initially for websites, but there is interest in, in the future, to deploy for smartphones as well. And we can contribute with our experience in accessibility for Android mobile applications, "he adds.

SIDI integrates Samsung e-commerce with US carriers
March 1

Samsung's North American e-commerce portal is already integrated with the services of Verizon and AT&T, carriers responsible for the largest mobile user bases in the United States. The project counted on the active participation of SIDI's Global Solutions team, which since October has been working closely with Samsung Eletronics America.

"With the integration, the user who purchases a smartphone through Samsung e-commerce can do the phone activation, number activation and choice his carrier plan in the same process, without having to leave the site," explains Ederson Marcos Ferreira, project manager. "That's because the platform now works seamlessly with these carrier systems," he adds.
To facilitate this integration, SIDI developed specific integration modules with each operator and made them available in a single layer of abstraction. With this feature, it is possible to group a number of providers under the website transparently to the user. In addition to Verizon and AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile are already integrated into the e-commerce.

Crocro Adventure: a success during the Winter Olympics in Korea
February 16

Developed by SIDI for the Kids Mode digital playground, the Crocro Adventure game was one of the attractions on Samsung's technology showroom at the PyeongChang Olympic Park in South Korea where the Winter Olympics took place. For more than two weeks - between February 9 and 25 - children from around the world had the opportunity to meet and enjoy the game's resources in the Samsung Brand Store dedicated to Kids Mode.

SIDI IT Team implements Protheus system in SIDIA
February 9

The experience acquired by SIDI with the implementation of TOTVS's ERP Protheus system played an important role in the success of a similar project executed for SIDIA in Manaus. The new ERP has been in operation at SIDIA since the beginning of January, after four months of deployment, serving around 700 users.

"The contract lasts 8 months and, in addition to the deployment, it also includes the training of key users, go live follow-up and support until the project closes in March," said Carlos Eduardo Pavarina, SIDI's Senior IT Manager. According to him, the go live of the Protheus system at SIDIA, which took place on January 2, was smooth - a result of the experience and good work carried out by SIDI's team, which was supported by TOTVS.
As in SIDI, Protheus was adopted as a complete corporate system, integrating the various areas of SIDIA and allowing the standardization of processes. Its implementation included the administrative-financial areas (including purchasing, accounting and fiscal), budget control, projects and HR (payroll and timekeeping). With the ERP, SIDI implemented the Fluig collaborative tool, also from TOTVS. "Fluig works seamlessly with Protheus as an interface between the user and the ERP, facilitating purchase and travel requisitions, time notes, electronic point and requests for reimbursement of expenses and benefits," explains Pavarina.

SIDI obtains its first patent in Brazil for a Samsung's project
February 2

SIDI had its first patent application granted in Brazil, for a project developed for Samsung in partnership with the UFC - Federal University of Ceará. The filing of the application at INPI (National Institute of Industrial Property) was made in December 2006, on behalf of Samsung - which owns the intellectual property - and the granting of the patent occurred in January of this year.

The "Modified Optical Flow Algorithm" patent is a result of the Gesture Recognition project, developed between 2006 and 2010, which also generated other patent applications filed and evaluated at INPI.

"This is a method that modifies the optical flow algorithm for tracing the displacement of mobile devices equipped with low-resolution cameras," explains Mateus Leme Pazini of SIDI's Innovation area. "This method allows you to work with low frame rate rates and introduces new variables to optimize the accuracy of motion detection," he adds.

 Currently SIDI reaches the mark of 45 patent applications in total: 28 applications under review and 17 already granted. Most of the current patents were granted by the USPTO, the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

CES 2018: what we saw
January 15

Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), Virtual Assistants, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR), carrier devices, connected and autonomous cars. These were the technological trends that dominated CES 2018, one of the largest electronics trade shows in the world, which took place in early January (between 9 and 12) in Las Vegas, in the United States.

We were able to check up on some of this trends:

Artificial Intelligence (AI) - Is increasingly present in all types of devices, devices and products - from refrigerators, stoves and televisions to cars with autonomous steering and even home robots, able to learn the place and play with children. Samsung, for example, presented at CES the world's first QLED TV with 8K AI technology, which uses Artificial Intelligence features to adjust a screen resolution to a 8K quality. It also showed a new generation of smart refrigerators, in addition to indicating the need to replenish food, can recommend dishes and download recepies appropriated to the palate of the house residents.

Internet of Things (Io) - Devices and connected equipment - of the most varied types - are outrement trend presented at CES. The event showed the growth of the IoT ecosystem and even the emergence of some curious gadgets, such as a suitcase with the ability to follow its owner like a puppy - a camera built into the product allows tracking user movements.

Virtual Assistants - They are the big bet of the great technology companies of the world, like Google, Amazon and Samsung.
