Counterfeit Electronics Detection – An Ontonix Success Story

From a Hill’s article: “… counterfeit electronics that threaten the reliability of military hardware and our critical infrastructure for telecommunications, energy and transportation. A study by the Senate Armed Services Committee found more than 1,800 cases of suspected counterfeits in advanced missile systems, helicopters, submarines and more. Because our company provides counterfeit detection services and…

Simplifying a Business is … Like Alchemy

Trying to simplify a business without being able to measure its complexity (simplicity) is like a doctor who proposes a weight loss diet but has no means of measuring the weight of his patients. If one has no complexity metric then we’re talking of subjective opinions, sensations, feelings, certainly not science. The silly images such…

Complexity-based Control of Dynamic Systems

Complexity-based control is possible because complexity can be measured in real-time using specifically developed hardware. The concept is illustrated below, whereby a QCM block is used to drive the complexity of a given system to desired levels. Because high complexity can lead to instability and fragility, the goal of QCM control is to drive complexity…

Increasing Cybersecurity. Locally.

A recent blog by CISCO speaks of how QCM – Quantitative Complexity Management – is used in anomaly detection in highly complex systems and contexts. In particular, it speaks of QCM as being able to detect the existence of an anomaly without having seen it before. Such capability goes beyond Machine Learning in that QCM…

Reinventing Anti-Money Laundering with Complexity

Beyond Madoff: Anti-Money Laundering with Quantitative Complexity Management. By JB Beckett, Author of ‘New Fund Order’. Foreword by Jacek Marczyk. Foreword: “Our society depends on a number of highly complex and highly interconnected networks that process and distribute energy, information, goods, etc. They form an immense system of systems that has one key characteristic –…
