Francesco Rulli - Querlo

“There is nothing greater in life than empowering others to succeed. Artificial Intelligence is my tool of choice to help people achieve their personal aspirations.”

Francesco Rulli, Founder, and CEO have leveraged a life-long interest in entrepreneurship, media, fashion, and technology. Previous enterprises include the John Malkovich fashion line, and Film Annex, an online film distribution company. The company promoted independent films with revenues generated through a custom ad server and player. The site hosted 300k independent films that reached up to 40 million viewers per month.

Other business ventures soon followed. BitLanders, a social media platform with 1 million registered users. Now an industry leader in gamification, BitLanders has several pending patents, including the content ranking system Buzz Score, and BitMiles, a rewarding system inspired by the Medici family’s double ledger accounting system.

Francesco is a board member of the GMRF, an organization which aids children who have lost the use of limbs or eyes or have been severely burned, injured due to war, natural disaster or illness. Francesco’s philanthropic efforts extend to Afghanistan, where he sponsored the construction of 13 classrooms, providing young women with the tools and opportunities of digital citizenship. This project led to the introduction of Bitcoin payments in 2013. Francesco has since cast his eye on Dubai, a city committed to becoming a leader in artificial intelligence.

In 2015, Francesco launched Querlo providing a robust environment for “conversational AI” and data performance analytics. Applying proprietary software, Francesco and his team developed tools to improve interactions between customers, employees, and brands. Today, the chatbots employ algorithms that mimic the neural connections of the human brain, a revolutionary development that promises to unify the arts and sciences with technology, long the dream of an Italian-American born and raised in Florence.

Implementation of Certain New Controls on Emerging Technologies Agreed at Wassenaar Arrangement 2019 Plenary

This final rule implements multilateral controls on six recently developed or developing technologies, which were identified by the Wassenaar Arrangement (WA) December 2019 WA Plenary Meeting in a manner contemplated by the Export Control Reform Act of 2018 (ECRA) to identify emerging technologies that are essential to U.S. national security.  The six emerging technologies are:

  • Hybrid additive manufacturing (AM)/computer numerically controlled (CNC) tools (2B001),
  • Computational lithography software designed for the fabrication of extreme ultraviolet (EUV) masks (3D003),
  • Technology for finishing wafers for 5nm production (new ECCN 3E004),
  • Digital forensics tools that circumvent authentication or authorization controls on a computer (or communications device) and extract raw data (5A004.b),
  • Software for monitoring and analysis of communications and metadata acquired from a telecommunications service provider via a handover interface (5D001.e), and
  • Sub-orbital craft (9A004.h, 9A515.a).
 

This rule harmonizes the CCL with the WA December 2019 Plenary Meeting agreements that pertain to these six technologies.  As these six technologies are recently developed or developing technologies that are essential to the national security of the United States, early implementation of the applicable WA December 2019 Plenary agreements is warranted.  The remaining WA 2019 Plenary agreements will be implemented in a separate rule.

Dear AHK Members and Friends,

The German Emirati Joint Council for Industry & Commerce (AHK)  in cooperation with SCHLÜTER GRAF Legal Consultants cordially invite you to the Joint Seminar:

“Localisation & Local Content in the UAE”

Date: Wednesday, 30th October 2019

Time: 
9:00 AM – 11:30 AM
(Registration & Networking starts at 8:30AM)

Venue: 
Rosewood Abu Dhabi, Al Maryah Island

For further information: Tel.: +971 4 431 3060

Localisation programs have a long tradition in the UAE. While the defense industry has typically used so-called “offset” or Industrial Cooperation programs; ADNOC has launched an In-Country Value (ICV) program, which was followed by the Abu Dhabi Value (ADV) program soft-launched by the Department of Economic Development (DED) in Abu Dhabi. Offset and ICV/ADV programs are procurement-driven and require a reciprocal economic contribution to the UAE, of a designated percentage of the value of the contract awarded. Foreign defense companies are granted offset credits under the Tawazun program in exchange for meeting their localisation commitments. Under the ICV/ADV programs, suppliers are granted a localisation score based on their local “footprint”.

Agenda

  1. Registration & Networking
  2. Welcome Address
    Oliver Oehms, CEO, German Emirati Joint Council for Industry & Commerce (AHK)
  3. Legal Insights on
    – ADNOC’s In-Country Value Program (ICV);

    – Tawazun Economic Council’s Economic Program

    Dr. Constantin Frank-Fahle, LL.M., Senior Lawyer, SCHLÜTER GRAF Legal Consultants
  4. Localisation Programs in the UAE – Update on the Programs’ Status
