TOKYO, Japan (December 7, 2018) – Digital Arts Inc. (headquartered in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan, CEO: Toshio Dogu, hereinafter referred to as "Digital Arts", Code 2326,) will release "D-contents", a service that is part of "internet security solution "i-FILTER" in early 2019. It is designed to provide carefully selected information related to educational planning for school teachers and students.
"D content" is a free service in which AI (artificial intelligence) analyzes internet access history, and automatically selects and provides only valuable information for users. As the first step it aims to deliver information about education-related sites useful for classes and home learning for school teachers and students. Specifically, in addition to supplementary teaching materials (videos such as YouTube) used in teaching science experiments and practical skills of physical education, it will offer popularity rankings of educational applications frequently used in elementary schools. By automatically screening and distributing sites with a large number of views/user access, it will save time and effort for information gathering and contribute to improving the user's work and learning outcomes. Which information is extracted from sites can be adjusted and fine-tuned, such as narrowing down by factors like area and school type, so that users can simply and easily find optimal and highly effective sites and videos without having to scrutinize each one from a large number of candidates.
Initially "D-content" will be offered for customers who use the endpoint internet security software "i-FILTER Browser & Cloud." The number of educational institutions implementing it as an optimal security tool for school tablets has increased. A factor in this is the goal set out of improving the ICT environments in Japanese schools by 2020. By releasing "D-content", the "i-FILTER" series will not only serve as a security countermeasure product but also as added value for effective data utilization. In the future, "D-content" will be expanded to the distribution of data for schools and educational places as well as for general enterprises, aiming to provide information that fits each industry, and to provide a variety of added content.
Digital Arts is aiming to provide new services that utilize databases to support users in collecting data, as well as be a solution to defend against and respond to external targeted attacks and internal information leaks.
