Understand the Impact of Recession, AI and ChatGPT With FiscalNote’s (NYSE: NOTE) Board.org Community

Benzinga

By Jad Malaeb, Benzinga History tells us that recessions are a troubling time for businesses and their leaders. In a report by Statista, it was found that even the “short-term” economic downturn instigated by the pandemic in 2020 led to 244 annual U.S. bankruptcy filings. This was the greatest figure recorded since the Great Recession of 2008-09, which saw 225 and 293 bankruptcies in 2008 and 2009 respectively. After an extended bull run between late 2020 and into 2021, it seems that threats of a recession are beginning to surface once more. The International Money Fund (IMF) expects the economies responsible for one-third of global output to shrink during part of this year or next. In the U.S., the job market has teetered along the edge of safety, marking no significant declines yet, but marks of a slowing gross domestic product (GDP) have already been etched into news headlines. Decision-making during these difficult times could mean the difference between survival and bankruptcy – businesses with access to decision-optimization tools or a strong network of proven leaders could have a competitive advantage over their counterparts. FiscalNote’s (NYSE: NOTE) Board.org feature is one of the few places where business leaders can go for help in troubled times. FiscalNote Can Help Leaders Execute Important Decisions In 2021, FiscalNote (NYSE: NOTE), a leading technology provider that helps organizations navigate government policy and regulations and geopolitical risk using AI and machine learning, acquired Board.org, a company providing vendor-free, peer-to-peer communities for people leading the world’s biggest companies. At its core, Board.org is a decision-optimization organization. It creates communities for leaders facing difficult tasks and helps them source advice from their peers. The Data Privacy Board, DEI Board and Talent Marketing Board are just three of the names involved in Board.org, and they’ve been helping the world’s experts since 2007. With this acquisition, FiscalNote enveloped Board.org’s communities into its portfolio of market intelligence products, providing customers with unparalleled access to the world’s leading voices. FiscalNote aims to grow the number of Board.org communities and to encompass more industries through this growth. Board.org Experts Discuss Artificial Intelligence ChatGPT’s rise to stardom is indicative of a coming-of-age of artificial intelligence (AI). While the technology has existed since 1951, it has mostly taken subtle forms in the shape of “intelligent” search browser recommendations, voice assistants (“Hey, Siri.”) and image recognition software on smartphones. ChatGPT encapsulated what most envisioned AI would eventually become: A human-like program that can be asked nearly anything and produce an intelligent answer. The emergence of ChatGPT, however, has introduced new problems. Prompted by instances like ChatGPT’s refusal to describe the characters of Donald Trump and Jordan B. Peterson, AI critics posit that ethical and political consideration in the construction of AI will be key to successfully navigating AI in the future. This is especially true for corporations that aim to leverage AI. In a blog post, the Enterprise Data Strategy Board, a member of Board.org, shows a plethora of case studies of AI gone wrong, including Amazon scrapping an AI recruitment tool that discriminated against women. The blog discusses the threats future corporations face by not appropriately considering AI ethics, an idea reiterated by experts at Forbes, KPMG, and TechTarget. Without pesky vendors or expensive consultants, Board.org packs insight gleaned from corporate experts and rigorous data to produce actionable insights. These insights help corporations tackle relevant problems like AI, recessions, and rising interest rates. Board.org – A Trove Of Insight From The World’s Business Leaders Board.org has strict guidelines for its communities. It screens members to include only leaders in their fields; it prohibits vendors from entering communities, meaning no one will attempt to sell you anything; it facilitates confidential conversations between leaders via its online staff; and it only communicates via phone and email. According to the company, they’ve had an 80% renewal rate for 14 consecutive years. “In a continuously evolving and more globalized world, our customers require access to the information, workflow tools, and communities that propel them to excel at their jobs,” noted FiscalNote founder and CEO, Tim Hwang. “We are excited about deploying Board.org and its proven model to better serve our customers as they wrestle with the various issues that impact their organizations on a daily basis.” FiscalNote’s acquisition of Board.org is just one of the many acquisitions the company has made. With a mission to expand its product holdings and improve its market intelligence, the company has also acquired FactSquared, Oxford Analytica, TimeBase, and FireSide, all of which provide unique intelligence-gathering features in the political domain and beyond.

Table Trac Inc. (OTCMKTS:TBTC) Gets License in Mississippi

TopNewsGuide - Market News & Commentary

The casino industry is back on its feet after some years following the chaos of the pandemic and lockdowns, which is why there are some companies in the sector that could come back onto the radars of analysts and investors. A company that has been active in the casino industry for quite a while is Table Trac Inc. (OTCMKTS:TBTC). It was established back in 1995 and is involved in the development, design, and sale of casino information and management systems. It has a considerable presence, and at this point in time, its systems are deployed by more than 100 casino operators in Central, South, and North America. Table Trac has also managed to expand its reach to the Caribbean and Australia. There have been some highly positive developments with regard to Table Trac in recent times, and one of those emerged last week on February 17. The company announced at the time that it had been awarded a license by the Mississippi Gaming Commission and that, by virtue of that, it would have permission to install its systems in casinos located in the state. Chad Hoehne, who is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Table Trac, spoke about the development as well. He noted that he was looking forward to providing the full range of casino management system products to the casino operators in the state. Some of the products that the company seeks to offer include Table Trac, Kiosk Trac, Data Trac, Promo Trac, and the company’s flagship product, Casino Trac.

It is a ranking of the top-performing stocks that are listed on the OTCQX Best Market. The ranking had been prepared based on the performance of the stocks during 2022. The ranking was prepared after taking into consideration the average daily dollar volume growth and the one-year total return. Both are then weighted in order to arrive at the ranking. Any company that finds a place in the ranking generally has to meet stringent standards with regard to governance, performance, and reporting, among others. In 2022, Table Trac had been in the ranking as well but had only been ranked 47 th; however, in the 2023 ranking, it jumped up several places and was ranked at the 25 th spot.

In the third quarter, the revenues stood at $2,301,328, which reflected a rise of as much as 59% year on year from the revenues of $1,449,881 in the 2021 quarter.

U.S. Army Rapper Takes Center Stage

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/cr-uqJDUPfk Most people don't know that there are more than 200 different careers in the Army, including musicians. Endless opportunities await Soldiers who are seeking an opportunity to serve the country while pursuing their passions and finding their purpose. There is no better example of the unexpected career paths for Soldiers than Staff Sergeant Lamar Riddick. As one of the first hip-hop artists in the Army, Staff Sergeant Riddick is an example of how the Army supports the dreams of Soldiers in and out of uniform. “Find out what your passion is. What do you love to do? See if that is available to you in the Army and you can still serve your country doing what you love” Staff Sgt. Riddick told an interviewer with Greensboro, NC station WGHP (Fox). If music is not your passion, the Army also has careers in the fields of science, medicine, technology, engineering, cyber and more. Soldiers also enjoy competitive benefits to help them continue to advance their careers and personal lives, including everything from healthcare, tuition assistance, home buying benefits, and so much more. “The Army has provided a great opportunity to have stability in my life through health coverage, to mental and physical therapy, to my finances. A great thing about the Army is being supported by an organization that also encourages travel and provides the resources. I had the opportunity to spend 26 days in Scotland preforming with the Army Field Band in front of thousands of people, that blew my mind and felt like a dream and I was able to do that through the support of the Army” Riddick added in an interview on WTTG TV in Washington, D.C. “The possibilities are endless” Riddick shared with the audience on Chicago’s WFLD TV.

This Company Could Be A Hidden Gem of the Gaming and Esports Industry

ESE Entertainment Inc.

By Ernest Dela Aglanu, Benzinga The growth of gaming and esports has been nothing short of remarkable in recent years. From the rise of competitive gaming to the emergence of streaming platforms, the gaming industry has seen a massive surge in popularity — and only in the last five or so years has the market seen significant gaming and esports IPOs. In the early days of gaming, it was mostly a hobby for a select few. The rise of online gaming has allowed gamers to connect from all over the world, creating a vibrant and competitive gaming community. Now, with publicly traded players across the industry, both gamers and traders are getting in on the action. The emergence of esports actively being powered by companies like ESE Entertainment Inc. (TSXV: ESE) (OTCMKTS: ENTEF) has been a major factor in the growth of gaming. Esports tournaments have become increasingly popular, with millions of viewers tuning in to watch the best players compete. The widespread adoption and playing of games mean industry revenues are growing. The global gaming market was worth $202.64 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.2% from 2022 to 2030. Innovation and technological proliferation in software and hardware are key factors fueling the market's growth. Time To Pay Attention To This Little-Known Player? ESE Entertainment was founded in 2019 by Konrad Wasiela, a former professional football player. Today, ESE has grown to consist of multiple assets and world-class operators in the gaming and esports industries. Its core expertise is in bringing new users and players to video game developers, and increasing game publicity. Through its technology, ESE becomes a key part of video game developer team’s in order to make their game launches successful. The company has provided billions of user impressions to keep the games of game publishers like Roblox Corp. (NYSE: RBLX), Riot Games, Electronic Arts Inc (NASDAQ: EA), and Ubi Soft Entertainment (OTCMKTS: UBSFY) filled to the brim. ESE asserts that its core expertise is bringing new users and players to video game developers and increasing game publicity with a consistent and proven track record. Big Data And Artificial Intelligence Another significant product offering from the company is its intelligence product, Singularity, a machine learning technology product that creates individualized marketing profiles – resulting in more efficient and profitable player acquisition campaigns. The technology opens up big query capabilities and provides real-time analytics, reporting, and machine learning for customers and the company. Additionally, ESE recently announced integrating ChatGPT into its business models. All in all, ESE is a data company and makes money in a similar way to social media platforms like Meta Platforms (NASDAQ: META)’s Facebook — by acquiring a game user by advertising and selling the user to a game publisher, ESE makes revenue based on the difference in value. The company also is expanding the same business model of user acquisitions to other lines of business within gaming to sports wagering, which is another large market itself and with higher margins based on the value of the player. Company Highlights The company’s annual revenue run rate is $64 million (based on fiscal Q3 2022 revenue). The company grew revenues by 276% between fiscal Q3 2021 to Q3 2022. ESE has strong management with proven results and industry expertise. The company has a tight capital structure with limited downward pressure. Its valuation is at approximately 0.5 times the last twelve months (LTM) revenue, with comparables being at more than twice that. Experienced Management Team And Growth Backed by Konrad Wasiela and a team with more than 50 years of combined experience in the entertainment and sports industries, the company believes it has the requisite skill pool to ensure transparency, longevity, and results. ESE is diversified with valuable resources globally and could be uniquely positioned to capitalize on the hottest consumer trends in the evolving video game industry. The company remains committed to pushing the boundary while solidifying its reputation as a leader to its investors, partners, and clients. This article was originally published on Benzinga here.

Contact Centers Are Increasingly Looking Beyond Traditional Multi-Factor Authentication and Turning To Biometrics To Prevent Fraud

BIO-key International, Inc.

By Gita Karunakaran, Benzinga BIO-key International Inc. (NASDAQ: BKYI) is a trusted provider of Identity and Access Management (IAM) and Identity-Bound Biometric solutions that are refining and changing the way Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is used within IAM. The company competes with other access management software providers such as Okta Inc. (NASDAQ: OKTA); ForgeRock Inc. (NYSE: FORG); and Cyber Software Ltd. (NASDAQ: CYBR). BIO-key is innovating within the space to offer an easier and more secure way to authenticate the identity of employees and customers while managing their access across devices and applications. BIO-key’s cybersecurity solutions are currently being used to solve unique access management challenges across a plethora of industries, including financial services, healthcare, retail, education, manufacturing, and government. With almost every industry and business having an online presence today – and cybercrime and security breaches ever on the rise – there is an urgent need for reliable authentication and access management solutions. Take the burgeoning customer contact [or call] center business, for example. In the U.S. alone, there are 34,013 Telemarketing & Call Center businesses as of 2023 and their numbers have been steadily increasing by 2.3% per year on average between 2018 - 2023. The global scenario is even more active, with the cloud-based contact center market seeing significant growth from USD 6.80 billion in 2017 to USD 93 billion by 2022 – a whopping 25.2% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR). Contact Center Fraud Under The Spotlight Fraud has always been considered a huge area of risk for contact centers, given that there is a vast amount of personal information being handled by the customer-servicing teams as well as the fact that contact center agents handle payment transactions as well. Contact center fraud is any instance when a caller tries to spoof the identity of a legitimate customer and obtain sensitive data. Fraudsters can also try to process a high-value transaction on behalf of the customer, routing the funds to a different account/address that they can then access. The fraudster does this by obtaining sensitive personal identification information, which enables them to mimic the customer’s identity to a very believable degree of authenticity. They become privy to passwords, answers to secret questions, and even SMS OTPs (one-time passwords) through SIM spoofing, i.e. getting access and using your phone number. Organizations have reportedly seen a spike in fraudulent calls since the start of COVID-19. Due to their rising numbers, contact center fraud has come under the spotlight in recent years, with enterprises looking to take concrete measures to combat scammers and fraudulent entities. As organizations become more aware of the cybercrime landscape, they are paying more attention to their identity and access management and authentication solutions. They’re beefing up their cybersecurity arsenal by going beyond passwords and PINs and introducing increased security protocols like traditional and advanced multi-factor authentication. Some of the best practices that are used by contact centers include ‘what you are’ authentication, such as a voice biometric, over traditional ‘what you know’ methods like PINs and passwords to securely authenticate customer identity and effectively combat fraud. They also adopt strategies such as providing focused training to the contact center agents and giving them access to only the most necessary customer information so that they do not end up inadvertently divulging additional personal information of a customer to a fraudulent caller. While voice biometrics are in use to prevent external frauds, there is also a risk of misuse of sensitive information by contact center agents or past employees in cases where they may have malicious intent and misuse customer information for personal gain –- adding to the need for a robust access management strategy. Contact center agents are known to regularly handle massive amounts of sensitive information on behalf of both the company they represent, as well as the customers who require their assistance. Therefore, in most contact centers, certain electronic devices like mobile phones that could be purposely or unwittingly used to capture sensitive information and relay it outside of the contact center are generally disallowed among agents. In such scenarios, an MFA process involving one-time passwords or PINs sent to mobile devices may not be feasible. In addition, contact center best practices involve restricting access on a need-to-know basis and are set up in a manner that requires a higher level of authorization for sensitive transactions including address changes, large fund transfers, and the like. What is needed is a simple and elegant solution that is not time-consuming and, at the same time, able to confirm the identity of the actual individual behind the access request. How BIO-key Can Help This is where companies like BIO-key, which offer a variety of flexible authentication solutions, could play a key role by enabling organizations to enforce stronger security and multi-factor authentication. For example, for contact center employees who use shared workstations across multiple locations, BIO-key offers Identity-Bound Biometrics (IBB) with fingerprint scanners. This solution eliminates the need for users to carry around individual tokens or phones to verify their identity. In addition to the enhanced security, IBB helps employees to smoothly, efficiently, and securely carry out their daily operations, including when they’re working on shared workstations in multiple shifts at contact centers. In these scenarios authentication using physical tokens and mobile devices may not be viable choices due to security policies, high cost, and inconvenience. However, organizations can quickly implement station-based fingerprint scanners and a one–time enrollment for all employees with Identity-Bound Biometrics. In which case, users can enjoy a passwordless login experience at any device across any branch location – without needing to use phones or tokens. BIO-key’s IBB authentication methodology can reliably verify a person’s identity so that organizations can have confidence that only authorized people are gaining access to systems and data. BIO-key’s cloud-based PortalGuard Identity as a Service (IDaaS) platform offers flexible options for SingleSign-on (SSO) and supports a range of multi-factor authentication methods, including IBB, phone apps such as Duo, Microsoft and Google Authenticators, smartcards, OTP, and knowledge-based questions and methods. BIO-key’s customers can access the power and convenience of Identity-Bound Biometrics to ensure the highest levels of integrity, security, availability, and accuracy that enterprise security requires. BIO-key has a long track record with fingerprint authentication, and where applicable, its one-of-a-kind mobile app, it calls MobileAuth, could be used to eliminate the inconvenience, security risks, and costs of traditional authentication methods. MobileAuth can be used for multi-factor authentication (MFA) or passwordless workflows that make it easy to sign in with a simple palm or face scan – no password needed. BIO-key says that implementing MFA is one of the core steps to achieving zero trust – an approach that treats every person and every device as a potential threat. PortalGuard offers the greatest flexibility and choice across the three main categories of authentication factors: something you know (passwords, PIN), something you have (hardware tokens, phone-based methods), and something you are (biometrics, such as a palm scan, fingerprint or facial recognition). Because IBB authenticates the identity of the actual user, according to BIO-key, there is no stronger way to establish trust and ensure secure access across an organization.

BIO-key is revolutionizing authentication and cybersecurity with biometric-centric, multi-factor identity and access management (IAM) software managing millions of users.

Hemp Inc (OTCMKTS: HEMP): Here Are Latest News & Developments

TopNewsGuide - Market News & Commentary

The hemp industry has grown by leaps and bounds over the course of the past few years and there are some companies that are at the forefront of the revolution. One of those is Hemp Inc (OTCMKTS:HEMP), which has been involved with the hemp cultivation and processing industry in North America for more than a decade. The company boasts a network of highly experienced professionals who are involved with every niche of the hemp industry. The company also boasts of a facility stretching across 85,000 square feet in Spring Hope in North Carolina and it is currently the biggest multipurpose hemp processing facility that is present in North America. However, in this regard, it is also important to keep in mind that the company is looking to bring about growth through involvement in environmentally responsible and sustainable businesses through strategic synergies. The company claims that the hemp industry could usher in an era of greener and more sustainable manufacturing processes in the United States. As it happens, the company was in the news last week on February 17 when it announced that it had managed to complete the biggest individual product sale in its history. The company announced that four semi-trucks had hauled 120,000 pounds worth of its DrillWall product. The product in question is the only existing completely natural kenaf/hemp Loss Circulation Material of its kind and is primarily meant for the oil and gas industries. The agreement with regard to the sale had initially been signed in 2019 through Industrial Hemp Manufacturing LLC, one of Hemp Inc’s subsidiary units. As per the provisions of the agreement, as much as 1 million pounds worth of the product was supposed to be sold over a period of one year. The onset of the coronavirus pandemic put paid to those plans and the company was unable to fulfill the order. The Chief Executive Officer of Hemp Inc Gary Perlowin spoke about the latest development. He noted that the company had now gone back on track with regard to the distribution stipulation that had been agreed upon. He went on to add that the company was concurrently negotiating another order for almost everything that had been developed at its North Carolina processing facility. He stated that there were as many as 444,000 pounds of the Spill-Be-Gone product and raw kenaf to the tune of 750,000 pounds, which could be converted into Spill-Be-Gone in a matter of 60 days. Farmers had also been kept on standby so that more of the raw material could be produced so as to take care of any further orders. The hemp industry is expected to generate meaningful growth and last year on December 20 the company provided an update with regard to the latest economic situation in the industry. The company cited a report from Research and Markets titled ‘Global Hemp Market by Type’ and revealed that the industrial hemp industry was all set to clock a compound annual growth rate of as much as 21.6% by 2027. That would value the industry at $18.1 billion. The report also cited the fact that hemp could be used across a wide range of industries like construction, food, and textiles. It also pointed out that in 2022 hemp enjoyed considerable success through deployment in different industries.
