    — said Sal Peer, Founder of Satellite Writer
    ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 17, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The recent update to the Satellite Writer system has a nice clean and simple design. In addition, the playground now boasts 80 unique skills with plans to expand to over 100 skill use-cases by early September 2022.

    Interview Questions
    and much more...

    We asked HailyAI which is the artificial intelligence model powering Satellite Writer to answer this simple question...

    "Is AI Making Online Business Easier? "

    Here is Satellite Writer's answer: (AI response begins...)

    The answer is yes.

    It has made online business easier for small businesses and entrepreneurs. Artificial Intelligence's use in marketing, sales, and customer service have made it easy for them to reach out to their customers and prospects. Using AI has also helped them to improve their conversion rate and increase their ROI.

    What are some of the ways AI can make business online easier?

    Let's take a look at these:

    1) Customer Service
    With the help of AI, companies can now create chatbots to handle all customer inquiries. These chatbots can understand the customer's language and provide relevant information about the product or service. They can also answer common questions such as "How much does this cost?" and "Do you have any special offers?"

    2) Marketing & Sales
    Marketing and sales are two processes that require human intervention. However, with the help of AI, marketers can automate many tasks such as creating landing pages, writing blog posts, designing email templates, etc. As a result, AI helps them save time and focus on other essential aspects of an effective marketing campaign.

    3) Analytics
    Analytics is one of the most critical activities performed by online businesses. With the help of AI, they can easily track and measure various metrics like bounce rates, page views, etc. In addition, AI operations help them to identify the areas where they need to improve their website content and design.

    4) Personalized Content
    Content creation and personalization are two of the most critical steps in the digital marketing strategy. With the help of AI, marketers can create personalized emails, landing pages, blogs, etc., which will resonate well with the target audience.

    5) Email Marketing
    Email marketing is one of the most effective forms of digital marketing. However, it requires constant efforts from marketers to keep up with the latest trends and changes in technology. With the help of AI, marketers can quickly build customized emails and send them to their subscribers.

    6) Social Media Management
    Social media management is another crucial aspect of digital marketing. Marketers need to stay updated with the latest developments on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc. With the help of AI, they can manage multiple accounts simultaneously without having to spend hours every day doing so.

    7) Website Design
    Website design is another task that requires a lot of attention and creativity. However, with the help of AI, marketers can easily create responsive websites which will work across different devices.

    8) SEO
    Search engine optimization (SEO) is one of the essential strategies for digital marketing. With the help of AI, marketers can optimize their websites and get better rankings on search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc. In addition, AI Content makes it easier for their potential customers to find them.

    (AI response ends)

    "It's funny because when reading the response, I realize all these helpful AI operations are what our focus is at AI Exosphere," said Sal Peer, Founder of Satellite Writer

    All of the above tasks are part of AI Exospheres' larger HailyAI model, which currently powers Satellite Writer.

  • Booky Call promotes legendary book dates

    Booky Call's logo

    Free book discovery app

    The Booky Call dating profile for "Pride & Prejudice"

    One "Legendary" Book Date

    Users’ right swipes gamify book discovery process

    We want to encourage a love affair between a book and a reader.”
    — Brant Menswar, Booky Call CEO
    WINTER PARK, FLA., UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 17, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Think of a book that is “legendary,” a classic like “Pride and Prejudice” or a new release like “Once Upon K-Prom.” What makes a book legendary — critical acclaim, sales or awards? Like most things related to beauty, readers say it may be in the eye of the beholder.

    Booky Call, a free book discovery platform cleverly disguised as a dating app, is giving users the opportunity to push their favorite titles to legendary status, one of several enhancements recently released to further gamify the book discovery process. The app utilizes the psychology and functionality of dating apps — including individualized dating profiles, left and right swipes, and direct messages — to connect readers to books.

    In the latest update, Booky Call added four new designations for books. While “New2Boo” is based on when a book’s dating profile is released in the app, there are three designations that depend on users’ right swipes. The more right swipes, the higher the designation. “Trending” denotes a title’s initial popularity followed by “Fan Fav.” The top designation, achieved by fewer than one percent of the books in Booky Call’s “date-abase,” is “Legendary.”

    Books achieving legendary status range from a YA mystery, “Six Months Later,” to the nonfiction self-help book “You Deserve this Sh!t” and Austen’s classic that introduced Mr. Darcy to the world.

    “We are determined to focus on the positive aspects of all of our potential book dates, so we intentionally avoided creating a toxic environment where users can leave scathing reviews or one-star ratings,” Brant Menswar, Booky Call’s CEO, said. “There are many outlets for trashing books. We’re different. We want to encourage a love affair between a book and a reader.”

    Booky Call starts by matching books to readers based on their stated preferences. Readers can scroll through the book’s answers to questions about their most attractive traits, what’s on their mind and what they’ll do on their first date. If the book has an audiobook version, an audio sample is also included. If there’s no connection, the reader swipes left. A right swipe leads to the book sending the reader a DM with links to date it: asking if they want to “meet in person” for the print version, “keep it digital” for the ebook or let the book “whisper in your ear” for the audiobook. Users can then click on a link and purchase the title in the chosen format from either Bookshop, Libro.fm or Amazon.

    Users can also browse for books by genre, title, author or descriptors known as tags. Booky Call’s “date-abase" includes fiction and nonfiction new releases as well as older titles — including classical literature — from major publishing houses, indie publishers and self-published authors.

    Given the proliferation of dating apps, it’s not surprising Booky Call has helped connect tens of thousands of active users across the globe to books by using the same structure and behaviors. Although the app only launched 10 months ago, it recently celebrated 750,000 book matches and anticipates topping one million matches before its one-year anniversary. The app is available in the App Store and Google Play.

    The CEO of an art promotion company tells thieves to Burn the Art they stole over a year ago and explains why.

    Enter, stranger, but take heed Of what awaits the sin of greed... For those who take but do not earn, Must pay most dearly in their turn,”
    — J.K.Rowling
    BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Robert Star is the CEO of Star Global International Inc, an art promotion company that self-styles itself as “Thinking out of the box.” They conceived and produced the Million Dollar Harley Davidson in 2010. This unique piece of kinetic art was painted by Cosmic Artist Jack Armstrong and launched him on the world stage. It is the world’s most expensive motorcycle. Star is telling the thieves who stole two paintings by Armstrong valued at over $7 million to either return the art to its legal owners or burn it.
    In February last year, two unique paintings were taken when thieves stole Star’s car specially customized to conceal and securely transport high-value art. The paintings were being taken to an art buyer in Beverly Hills for viewing. The police recovered the vehicle but have so far been unable to retrieve the art. Their art theft recovery unit was part of the defunding cutbacks. Last November, Star authorized a press release offering a reward for their return. He has had seven contacts from different people, all with similar stories. They know somebody who knows somebody who physically has the paintings and is trying to sell them in China. CEO Star is confident that the paintings are still in California and that the thief or thieves are misconceived and holding out for a substantial reward.
    Star explained that if anyone is caught with these unique masterpieces, they have criminal liability and, if convicted, will go to prison. He advises them to return the paintings to their owners or burn the art. I asked Star about this somewhat extreme ‘burn” advice.
    Star responded, “My advice to the thieves may not be as extreme as it first sounds. These paintings are worthless to any thief because they are both secretly coded, and Star Global must issue an original certificate of origin. No collector or investor buying million-dollar rare art wants to buy a stolen work when it is so easily recognizable. They would undoubtedly contact Star Global to confirm the legitimacy of any painting. There are only 100 of these Cosmic paintings by Armstrong, who has vowed to the world that no more than 100 will ever exist.
    His inspiration to create only 100 of these exceptional cosmic paintings came from The Black Star Sapphire of Queensland (733 cts.), a $200 million gem he believed had magical powers and specifically instructed him that no more than 100 should ever exist. He has stated that if a stolen painting is returned, he will publicly burn any canvasses to maintain the number at precisely 100. Indeed, before he founded this new art form, Cosmic Extensionalism (Cosmic X), he burned all his prior paintings.
    Artists burning their works is not as unusual as it sounds—a Fanatical Monk Inspired 15th-Century Italians to burn their art. Damien Hirst just announced he would burn thousands of his paintings. Much of his work is said to be produced by assistants. Michelangelo, the Great Sculptor, burned his sketches so there would not be any evidence of the work and processes to get there. Before moving on from his previous traditional works, John Baldessari decided in 1970 to have them destroyed. There are more examples.

    Contemporary artists, from Gerhard Richter to Bansky, have followed in the footsteps of their predecessors. Ironically, some of these artists have proved that destroying their art isn’t always defeatist or for sheer vanity but allows for liberation, which inspires new levels of creativity. However, the reason for Jack Armstrong’s commitment to publicly burn his stolen art if recovered is as unique as his art itself.

    So, it’s simple, my message to the thieves is to burn the art or turn them into a local fire station and ask them to notify law enforcement. You will keep yourself out of harm’s way. This stolen cosmic art is bad mojo. Doing the right thing, the universe will reward you.”

  • Readers turning to tech to find books

    Free book discovery app

    Apps are the new book discovery platform

    Rather than browsing dating profiles and swiping right on men and women, our creative content team ‘ghostwrites’ profiles for books so users can swipe right on their next ‘book date’.”
    — Brant Menswar, Booky Call CEO
    WINTER PARK, FLA., UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 16, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Finding a good book used to require visits to brick-and-mortar bookstores or one’s local library then book discovery moved to websites and online retail. Now there’s an app for that — multiple apps, actually, with distinct hooks to connect readers and titles.

    Booky Call, a free book discovery platform disguised as a dating app, is finding great success by gamifying the process. CEO Brant Menswar explained: “We took the psychology and functionality of dating apps to bring books to life in a creative way. Rather than browsing dating profiles and swiping right on men and women, our creative content team ‘ghostwrites’ profiles for books so users can swipe right on their next ‘book date’.”

    Given the proliferation of dating apps, it’s not surprising Booky Call has helped connect tens of thousands of active users across the globe to books by using the same structure and behaviors. Although the app only launched 10 months ago, it recently celebrated 750,000 book matches and anticipates topping one million matches before its one-year anniversary.

    Booky Call users scroll through a book’s “humanized” dating profile before deciding to swipe left or right on it. A right swipe leads to the book sending the user a DM with links to date it: asking if they want to “meet in person” for the print version, “keep it digital” for the ebook or let the book “whisper in your ear” for the audiobook. Users can then click on a link and purchase the title in the chosen format from either Bookshop, Libro.fm or Amazon.

    More recent entrants into the book discovery field are taking a different approach. Tertulia is focusing solely on print books and creating new ways for readers to learn more about those titles from curated sources like book reviews and social media posts. Litsy is an app that encourages users to recommend books to other users, and Likewise helps readers find not only books but TV shows, movies and podcasts.  

    Other book discovery apps are specific to places where readers can find books. OverDrive and Libby both bring the library to users, allowing them to check out ebooks from their local library. Most brick-and-mortar bookstores have developed apps to facilitate online purchases. Practically all book discovery apps are free to download, but some have premium content that requires payment.
     
    Booky Call’s “date-abase" includes fiction and nonfiction new releases as well as older titles — including classical literature — from major publishing houses, indie publishers and self-published authors. Reading “Pride and Prejudice’s” dating profile is one of many five-star experiences users enjoy while finding their next book date.

    AP and Acer Indonesia renew collaboration on Jelajah Ilmu

    AP has always placed the development of education and its accessibility at the forefront of our company’s vision.”
    — Dr. Benson Soong
    SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE, August 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- AP and Acer Indonesia renew collaboration on Jelajah Ilmu



    Advanced Pedagogy (AP) and Acer Indonesia recently announced the renewal of their successful partnership whereby Jelajah Ilmu, an AP platform, will continue to serve as a focal point for both parties to further Acer Indonesia’s Acer for Education program in the local Indonesian curriculum sector.

    The Jelajah Ilmu partnership between AP and Acer Indonesia has been enormously beneficial to both organisations so as to further their efforts of bolstering education through the use of technology. Through this partnership, AP has contributed significantly to Acer Indonesia’s mission of revolutionising and increasing accessibility to high quality education for all schools in Indonesia.

    “AP has always placed the development of education and its accessibility at the forefront of our company’s vision. While we possess some of the most advanced educational technologies and a proven pedagogy on our education platforms, it would have been a gigantic task to deliver our product to the ones that primarily require them without the support of Acer Indonesia and their Acer for Education program,” said Dr Benson Soong, Founder of AP.

    AP, through its Jelajah Ilmu platform, provided crucial support to the Acer for Education program by technologically enabling the Acer Smart School Awards. Additionally, both AP and Acer Indonesia have launched the Jelajah Ilmu Academy, which seeks to upskill educators for the new educational landscape in Indonesia.

    “Acer for Education was initiated with a focus on supporting academic betterment in Indonesia. By working with AP on the Jelajah Ilmu platform, we have already seen this partnership greatly benefit many schools and communities. The extension of this partnership will see the introduction of various new features within the Jelajah Ilmu platform, like HQ Leader Dashboard, a Competency Evaluator platform, and the introduction of Jelajah Ilmu Certified Schools. These and other efforts will contribute towards our joint mission of improving education for all in Indonesia,” said Maya Fransisca, Marketing Head Acer Indonesia on the renewal of the partnership.

    The main goal of Acer for Education is to contribute to all acceleration processes of digitalization in the education sector. In realising this, Acer Indonesia has established guidelines for implementing their four pillars of the digital transformation ecosystem that will drive these acceleration processes. Firstly, the focus is to strengthen Human Resources, which is carried out through Jelajah Ilmu Academy. Secondly, promoting the Jelajah Ilmu platform so that the digital education ecosystem becomes integrated. Thirdly, supporting the fulfillment of digital support by producing products with physical components (hardware) that already have TKDN certification. And lastly, to provide maximum protection through cyber security services.

  • Readers looking for a Friday night date turn to Booky Call for a book-up

    BOO Logo

    Free book discovery app

    Publishers and authors finding success using new book discovery platform

    We wanted to gamify the process of users finding their next great read, so we took the psychology and functionality of dating apps to bring books to life in a creative way.”
    — Brant Menswar, Booky Call CEO
    WINTER PARK, FLA., UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 12, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Readers across the globe are ditching the dating scene on Friday nights, preferring to cuddle up with books. Booky Call, a free book discovery platform cleverly disguised as a dating app, understands monogamy is so 20th century when it comes to readers and their book dates.
     
    “We wanted to gamify the process of users finding their next great read,” Booky Call CEO Brant Menswar noted, “so we took the psychology and functionality of dating apps to bring books to life in a creative way.” Rather than making TBR decisions based on the back cover’s plot summary, Booky Call users scroll through a book’s “humanized” dating profile before deciding to swipe left or right on it. A right swipe leads to the book sending the user a DM with links to date it: asking to “meet in person” for the print version, “keep it digital” for the ebook or let the book “whisper in your ear” for the audiobook.  

    Author Andy Roamer has seen positive results from his book’s dating profile. “Readers are noticing and clicking on my book big time! How I have longed to say that after a few years of publishing my YA series, ‘The Pizza Chronicles’ and not seeing as many sales as I would like,” Roamer said. “I’ve joined only recently with my first book of the series, ‘Why Can’t Life Be Like Pizza?,’ and it’s already paying off with so many matches and clicks.”
     
    Booky Call’s date-abase includes fiction and nonfiction new releases as well as back catalog titles from major publishing houses, indie publishers and self-published authors. Titles from bestselling authors and those just entering publishing are enjoying book-ups.

    Valerie Willis, COO of 4 Horsemen Publishing, contracted with Booky Call on multiple titles. “We've seen a huge increase in Amazon rankings across the board,” she said. “The authors and readers seem to love this interaction.”

    Madison Taylor of Page Two agreed. “The profiles are so creative,” she said. Briah Krueger, who writes under the name of B.A. McRae, said she was quite impressed with the profiles, including the one for her debut. In her blog, “The Optimistic Author,” she noted the ingenuity of the app’s content. “Each book comes with details beyond your wildest bookish dreams, certainly more juicy deets than any synopsis or review,” she wrote. “You’ll get a personal inside scoop on why you’d want to swipe right on this particular book and even get a little preview of the book itself.”

    Publishers and authors looking to have readers “date” their titles can learn more about the app, the dating profiles and the process by visiting www.bookycall.com.
     
    Booky Call is free to download and available in both the App Store and Google Play. Its revolutionary content has led to close to one million book matches since its launch in September 2021. The app has helped more than 300,000 book lovers all over the world find their next book dates on Friday nights — and every other night of the week.

    AI Exosphere discusses user acquisition, automation, and a new partnership to build Website Rabbit IO. Team committed to taking Satellite Writer SaaS to market.

    I don't think our work and training of unique models will ever be over. We have to strive to deliver new valuable AI operations and make them easy to use.”
    — said Alex Athey, Co-Founder
    ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Last RISE Team Day, the AI Exosphere team discussed user acquisition, automation, and much more. They also further committed to taking the newly developed Satellite Writer SaaS to market by any means necessary.

    The team celebrated its 70+ skills and the recently launched Satellite Publishing. It uses Satellite Writer to write social media posts, articles, and press releases and publish them automatically across multiple channels and news outlets for users.

    The initiative was a market test for ongoing automated social media posts and press distribution for business owners.

    While the Satellite Writer team works on finishing touches, bug resolution, and launching new front ends, the focus at AI Exosphere has shifted from content generation to automation tasks, VR/AR HailyAI assistant, and the flagship HailyAI API.

    "I don't think our work and training of unique models will ever be over. We have to strive to deliver new valuable AI operations and make them easy to use," said Alex Athey, Co-Founder

    To start testing automation tasks, the team has begun developing in collaboration with Social Brim to build out Website Rabbit IO, an automated speech-to-website SaaS.

    The current Website Rabbit CMS has 197 active users and has successfully gained traction with a free website design offer. However, the CMS does not offer any automated services. This makes it an excellent opportunity to test the HailyAI API and provide new AI operations to an existing user base.

    The future of AI is bright, and navigating it safely while encouraging users to gain the benefits of leading-edge technologies is of utmost importance. However, the mission remains to increase inclusion, accessibility, and scalability for small business owners, entrepreneurs, creators, and agencies.

    About Satellite Writer
    Satellite Writer is a SaaS platform created by AI Exosphere. The cloud-based AI service allows anyone to create copy for any niche and use AI tools with simple voice or text commands. In addition, the platform includes a powerful editor and multi-language options powered by the leading-edge HailyAI model.

    About AI Exosphere
    AI Exosphere is a company of dedicated professionals with a vision to free the entrepreneur, resolve enterprise-level problems, and empower the everyday Joe through an artificial intelligence assistant named HailyAI. The company is part of the NVIDIA Inception and AWS Portfolio accelerators.

    About Social Brim
    Social Brim is a digital agency with a mission to bring heart to AI, cloud development, and advertising. We want to ensure small and medium-sized businesses have an equal opportunity with future tech by increasing accessibility.

    About Satellite Publishing

  • Here and Now, There and Then: Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University Drives Innovation and Invention, Locally and Globally

    Supporting Innovations & Invention - Locally & Globally

    Accelerating innovation locally & Globally

    Creative Minds...Transform the World

    Prince Mohammad Bind Fahd University

    PMU is embracing how local and global collaborative engagement can synergistically reinforce each other to improve lives in the here-and-now

    Although we have achieved great things at PMU, our work upon the local and global stages is far from finished, We will continue to move forward with enthusiasm and determination.”
    — Dr. Issa Alansari (President)
    AL-KHOBAR, EASTERN PROVINCE, SAUDI ARABIA, August 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Starting several years ago with Vision 2030, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia set forth a bold agenda of economic and social transformation to open up the nation to the world. Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University (PMU), a prestigious institute of higher learning in Saudi Arabia, is continuing to do its part in progressing Vision 2030 and the agenda's themes of an Ambitious Nation, a Thriving Economy, and a Vibrant Society. In accordance with these far-reaching themes, PMU is also helping advance the goals of partnership, prosperity, peace, and understanding worldwide.

    Among PMU's many relevant activities has been the funding of special projects for university researchers and the securing of patents for new inventions. Through the Prince Turki bin Muhammad bin Fahd Center for Creativity and Entrepreneurship (PTCCE) at PMU, the university is supporting the projects and research of both male and female students. In particular, PMU is ensuring funding allocations for women researchers and students as they make key contributions to Vision 2030 in the area of sustainability via the development of clean, renewable energy sources and applications.

    In these endeavors, PMU has also partnered with the National Academy of Inventors (NAI). A United States-based non-profit organization, NAI plays a pivotal role in recognizing and promulgating inventions made by its members for the benefit of global society.

    Furthermore, to proactively envision and move toward achieving an equitably prosperous future, the Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd Center for Futuristic Studies (PMFCFS) and the World Futures Studies Federation (WFSF) have announced a continuation of their futures research grant through this year. PMU has accordingly put out a new, third call for research proposals on "Thinking about alternative futures...", a widely ranging scholarly project aligning with Vision 2030 by exploring sustainability, wellbeing, and adaptability to unpredicted events.

    Overall, through these efforts and more, PMU is managing to maintain a broad focus encompassing both home and abroad. The university is embracing how local positive change and global collaborative engagement can synergistically reinforce each other to improve lives in the here-and-now, as well as the there-and-then.

    "All of us at PMU are very proud of what we are accomplishing in supporting research, innovation, and engagement within our community in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and across the full community of nations worldwide," said Dr. Issa Al Ansari, President of PMU. "We truly believe that tremendous opportunity exists for global citizens to cooperatively forge a future where prosperity is shared and accessible to all."

    Powering Innovation

    A prime example of diligent individual effort cumulatively benefiting the world's population—and the health of the planet itself—is the electric vehicle. While fossil fuels have powered humanity's technological rise since the Industrial Revolution began more than two centuries ago, while also historically serving as a key source of wealth for Saudi Arabia, these fuels do not represent the future of energy generation by our global species.

    PMU members are thus working on developing electric vehicles that can run on renewable sources of energy. In this vein, ten female students from PMU's College of Engineering and the Department of Mechanical Engineering recently succeeded in designing and manufacturing an environmentally friendly electric car. The three-wheeled, joystick-controlled vehicle utilizes a solar-power charging station and performed admirably in test runs. The vehicle represents the culmination of an important hands-on, skills-building exercise that will empower PMU students to continue innovating and developing the modes of transportation humankind will progressively adopt in the coming decades. The distinguished graduation project was honored at a ceremony held by the university administration and attended by Dr. Al Ansari.

    "At PMU, we encourage women to pursue careers in STEM—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—and have made it a point to ensure funding allocation for both men and women," said Dr. Al Ansari. "The electric vehicle demonstration is evidence of how a balanced approach broadens innovation—innovation which will be critical in meeting the challenges of the 21st century."

    Protecting Inventions

    The PTCCE is a catalyst for electric vehicle and other Vision 2030-aligned research and development. Beyond supporting and enriching the ideas of young people, the Center for Creativity and Entrepreneurship assists in turning these ideas into economically viable and attractive projects and applications at both the local and the global level.

    Also playing a critical role is the Patent Center, established under the Deanship of Research at PMU. The Patent Center supports the protection of creative scholarly activities, innovation, and discoveries involving faculty, staff, students, and others participating in PMU programs, with a major element of this support being the assistance with securing patents through coordination with NAI.

    Five patents were recently awarded by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to inventions by PMU community members. The patents represent a range of disciplines, from health and medicine to electrical and mechanical engineering and materials science. One of the patented inventions uses artificial intelligence (AI) for early diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, a neurodegenerative condition, as well as cardiovascular diseases by searching for telltale physiological, voice, and handwritten patterns displayed by patients. A second invention has applications in the power transmission industry and involves the fabrication of copper wire with enhanced electrical conductivity plus the desirable properties of high strength and ductility. The third invention is a novel kind of separator that can more effectively dehumidify air, with applications in the HVAC, aerospace, and natural gas industries. The fourth invention is a highly practical and versatile bento-style lunch box. The fifth invention describes the preparation of a polyolefin-carbon nanomaterial composite that offers excellent thermal and electrical conductivity along with flexibility, toughness, and degradation resistance.

    "Through our dedicated Centers and partnerships, we are finding extraordinary success in promoting and protecting innovation and invention at PMU," said Al Ansari.

    Reflecting the quality education that PMU offers to its students as well as its sustained support for academic staff, the university was recently rated highly in the QS World University Rankings, an annual publication of university rankings by Quacquarelli Symonds, a United Kingdom-based higher education analysis company. Overall, PMU was ranked in the top 651 to 700 universities around the world in the QS University World Rankings 2023, published in June. The university has also been recognized as one of the world's top universities for performance in the subjects of mechanical engineering (401-450) and computer science (601-650) by the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2022.

    The growing number of accolades for PMU's members, as well as the university's growing global reputation, collectively speak to the fruition of the themes of progress and prosperity in Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030.

    "Although we have achieved great things at PMU, our work upon the local and global stages is far from finished," said Dr. Al Ansari. "We will continue to move forward with enthusiasm and determination."
