  • The partnership between the luxury cruise brand Cunard and Circle of Style will give people the opportunity to have their own pre-loved outfits curated and made available for them to purchase ahead of their next voyage
  • Using only pre-loved clothing, this collection serves as an ode to the trends of each decade from 1900 to 1990, but with a modern twist for today’s cruise guests

SOUTHAMPTON, England, Nov. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — To celebrate 100 years since cruise collections first became part of the coveted fashion scene, Cunard has partnered with pioneer of second-hand fashion, Bay Garnett, and pre-loved styling service, Circle of Style, to create the ‘Cunard Capsule Cruise Collection’. A capsule collection that draws inspiration from the rich legacy of cruise couture fashion that has evolved since the 1900s.

To celebrate the introduction of the new capsule collection, Cunard and Circle of Style are offering style aficionados an exclusive chance to create their own one-of-a-kind pre-loved cruise wardrobe ahead of their next voyage with a bespoke styling service. The first 100 people who visit  https://www.cunard.com/en-gb/circle-of-style and follow the instructions will get exclusive access to the styling service. These lucky 100 will be paired with an expert at Circle of Style, who will artfully assemble a carefully curated wardrobe that they may purchase for use on their next cruise, drawing inspiration from the Cunard Capsule Cruise Collection looks.

Pioneer of second-hand fashion, Bay Garnett, said: “Fashion from the past gives a rich and vibrant tapestry for ideas and inspiration. I frequently draw inspiration from fashion moments of the past spanning several decades to reimagine contemporary looks.  Delving into Cunard’s photographic archive to find inspiration for the new Capsule Cruise Collection was a wonderful and super interesting journey. The process of curating ten stylish and contemporary ensembles, with each one being inspired by the quintessential fashion moment of its respective decade, has been a lovely, perfect and fascinating project.”

The exclusive Cunard Capsule Cruise collection is inspired by Cunard’s extensive archive images – with ten looks from ten decades of cruising, each one inspired by the fashion trends of the time. From the prim and proper 1900s through to the bold colour of the 1970s and the contemporary cool of the 1990s, each piece within the collection celebrates the style of its decade, with a modern twist perfect for present day style enthusiasts.

Throughout the decades, fashion has always played an important part in Cunard’s heritage, from hosting celebrities including Elizabeth Taylor, Marlene Dietrich and Rita Hayworth to being the first cruise company to hold a transatlantic fashion week cruise. Glamour and fashion has always been linked to cruising and the capsule collection aims to help future guests capture this spirit, whatever their style.

Within the capsule wardrobes will be a selection of pre-loved pieces from a variety of renowned designers such as Chanel, Burberry, A.P.C and Alexander McQueen and many more within Circle of Style’s archive, all of which will be available to purchase.

Katie McAlister, President of Cunard said: “We’re incredibly excited to see this partnership come to life and offer customers the opportunity to celebrate 100 years of cruise couture with us. Fashion has always been and remains an important part of cruising heritage and therefore this collection embraces history in a relevant yet modern way in true Cunard style.”

DENVER, Feb. 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Singularity, founded in late 2022, has successfully concluded its second funding round at the end of 2023, with this round led by Gumi Cryptos Capital. The funding will support the development of its protocol, aimed at facilitating compliant access to DeFi as well as ensuring commercial confidentiality for all on-chain activities, with an emphasis on institutional users.

Notable participation from investors such as Nomura’s digital asset subsidiary Laser Digital, Eureka Partners, and previous round investors including Apollo Crypto, Digital Asset Capital Management, and Gandel Invest, underscores top tier institutional and Venture Capital firms’ confidence in Singularity’s vision. With this latest round, Singularity has raised close to US$4 million since its inception.

Singularity is leading the way in developing a KYC/KYB-compliant institutional DeFi access layer, providing access to leading protocols for on-chain institutional participants while prioritizing commercial confidentiality. Users can seamlessly access existing on-chain liquidity and conduct transactions within Singularity, all while benefiting from on-chain anonymity by utilizing advanced zero-knowledge technology.

The initial cohort of institutional users comprises a significant portion of Singularity’s investors, spanning liquid funds, asset managers, and venture capitalists. Singularity stands as one of the first DeFi infrastructure protocols leveraging Noir-based zero-knowledge circuits. Noir is a domain-specific language for SNARK proving systems developed by Aztec Labs. It serves as a universal language for zero-knowledge (ZK) circuits. Users can have confidence in the commercial confidentiality of their on-chain activity protected by state-of-the-art cryptography.

“We look forward to launching in the coming months with our early institutional users. We focused on designing and building in 2023, and, in what was a very difficult year for primary markets, our investors’ commitments validate the institutional need to transact on-chain without information leakages” said Jemma Xu, co-founder of Singularity, “We have an exciting product roadmap ahead with more integrations and multichain deployments. Our immediate focus is on growing our institutional user base.”     

“We are proud to support Singularity in their efforts to advance DeFi accessibility. Singularity addresses a crucial need in the market, providing institutional users with both the compliance and the commercial confidentiality necessary to participate in DeFi. We look forward to partnering with Singularity in this journey,” said Miko Matsumura, Managing Partner at Gumi Cryptos Capital.

“We are excited to support Singularity on its journey to bring private and compliant DeFi accessibility to institutions.” said Jez Mohideen, CEO of Laser Digital.

Users can both leverage the underlying existing on-chain liquidity and transact within the Singularity, obfuscating both wallet addresses and order details. At launch, Singularity will be integrated with some of the major DeFi protocols and will continue to grow its integrations to provide users with a diversity of on-chain strategies.

Kakao Brain Debuts ‘KARA-CXR’, a Web-Based Radiology Report Service Powered by Large-Scale AI

Published

on

kakao-brain-debuts-‘kara-cxr’,-a-web-based-radiology-report-service-powered-by-large-scale-ai

“AI Assistant for Radiologists”

  • Kakao Brain introduced last month a web-based radiology report Research Use Only (RUO) service powered by its large-scale artificial intelligence (AI), “KARA-CXR.”
  • Kakao Brain plans to expand the interactive functions supporting various imaging medical examinations through the advancement of large-scale multi-modal generation AI technology.

SEOUL, South Korea, Feb. 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Kakao Brain has unveiled the research use only (RUO) web-based solution powered by “KARA-CXR” (short for “Kakao Brain AI for Radiology Assistant-CXR”), a large-scale AI algorithm that instantly generates preliminary radiology reports for doctor’s review when chest X-ray images are uploaded onto the web.

Through this user-friendly and seamless solution, medical researchers can experience various functions such as: receiving two types of AI interpretations of chest X-ray images together (a simple report and a detailed full report); ability to upload multiple DICOM files at once and receiving multiple reports simultaneously; and being able to share the AI interpretations within the research group or medical community. It also features compliant security measures that anonymize and protect any personal information contained in DICOM files.

Kakao Brain started developing ‘KARA-CXR’ in 2022, collaborating with 11 leading university hospitals and large medical institutions. Partners include: Ewha Womans University Medical Center (Seoul, Mok-dong), Ajou University Hospital, Soonchunhyang Medical Center (Cheonan, Gumi, Seoul), Chungnam National University Hospital, Chungbuk National University Hospital, Keimyung University Dongsan Medical Center, Inha University Hospital, Dongguk University Ilsan Hospital, among others. ‘KARA-CXR’ has analyzed over 16 million chest X-ray images and readings. KARA-CXR is built on Kakao Brain’s healthcare-specialized large-scale generative AI model, and the research team is preparing to publish the results in influential academic journals.

Kakao Brain is preparing to obtain the European Union certification and seek approval from the US FDA and Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety. Kakao Brain is committed to the expansion of AI-powered radiology solution to address the inefficiency in the existing interpretation and reporting process, a shortage of radiologists, and to unburden healthcare professionals from the increasing workload. As an RUO tool, KARA-CXR is currently available for research use only and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

Kim Il-doo, CEO of Kakao Brain, stated, “As KARA-CXR was developed using high-quality data and the latest technology involving large-scale learning and generative AI, I hope that it will eventually play a great role in enhancing the workflow for the radiologists, not to mention improving the efficiency of chest x-ray image interpretation.” He also added, “We are planning to go beyond generating AI interpretations of chest X-rays by expanding the algorithms to include interactive functions that support a variety of medical imaging tests, by utilizing the advanced large-scale multi-modal generative AI technology.”

Kakao Brain is a Korea-based global AI technology company. Founded in 2017, Kakao Brain aims to develop AI technology that will change people’s lifestyle and embraces the challenge of asking the ‘Unthinkable Question’ to spark innovation, allowing everyone to live better lives. Kakao Brain has developed numerous innovative AI technologies and services designed to enhance people’s quality of life through continuous technological innovation. These include the large-scale language model KoGPT and the image generation model Karlo. Additionally, Kakao Brain contributes to the development of the AI technology community by releasing ‘Coyo,’ a dataset consisting of approximately 740 million images and text.
