The US patent evaluation is used as reference when attracting investment from foreign companies. Company patents goin line with the idea of creative economy suggested by the new administration which hopes to promote creative ideas in business. Although many companies hold registered patents, this does not translate into immediate business profit.
We take a look into how patents can become an asset and boost the competitive edge for the Korean companies.
The biometric security technology is no longer a fictional idea in SF movies.
Body scanning is impossible to duplicate unlike social security number or certificate verification number and passwords.Biometric security such as finger print, vein, iris and retina scanning have all been commercialized, whilesecurity scanning of the ear shape and the detection of body odor are other areas that are in development… One domestic iris scanning security company produces and sells a root algorism which allows PC login, security entrance and USB security.We introduce the biometric security service and the device that determineswhether a person is alive within 0.5-seconds into scanning the iris, and a product which can tell a false finger print. Thesedevices are expected to keep personal information under maximum security.
This is not the first time North Korea has detained an American. In 2009 two American female reporters Laura Ling and Euna Lee were held captive, then in 2010 there was Aijalon Gomes who was also arrested by the North Korean authority. Kenneth Bae becomes the sixth US detainee.
We talk to Laura Ling via Skype and in an interview she will be sharing her experiences in North Korea. We also hear from the experts about the North's diplomacy using American detainees and the historical background as well as the outcome of the North Korean stance.
