          14 Highlights In The Dynamics 365 October 2018 Update Guide      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Microsoft has published a release preview guide for the October 2018 major cloud update for its Business Applications.

In this post, we've highlighted the main themes and new features that caught our eye across the Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement apps.

1. All Users Will Be On The Same Version

Microsoft recently made a change to the way it manages cloud updates which requires all users to be on the same version. As such, there will no longer be an option to skip a major update.

This next major update is scheduled to roll out between October 2018 and March 2019, once released, admins will need to schedule this.

Any remaining sites using v8.2 must plan to be on the latest version by 31 January 2019 for all Customer Engagement apps.

2. Prepare for the Unified Interface

In v9, Microsoft rolled out a new Unified Client Interface which uses responsive design to provide a uniform experience across any screen size, device, form or browser.

For most users, the UI is hidden as the v9 release had several important gaps in comparison with regular web UI.

As a result, relatively few sites have enabled the new experience in their production instance, instead using a refreshed version of the legacy interface.

These gaps are closing, and may disappear entirely in the upcoming release. Specifically, administrators will soon be able to add controls to the UI for:

  • Bulk edits
  • Advanced find
  • Merge records
  • Share records
  • Running on-demand workflows.

Further performance and usability improvements are also promised for the Unified Interface.

This is important for several reasons:

  • The Unified Interface is the future of the product
  • Microsoft are introducing new functions that are only available within the UI
  • New instances are now deployed with the Unified Interface enabled by default
  • From the October release, the UI will be the only option when building new app modules
  • At some future point, Microsoft will switch off the classic web user interface

For the October 2018 update, admins will be able to choose between enabling the new Unified experience, or retaining the legacy classic web UI.

To determine which user experience is best for your organisation in this upcoming release, we recommend taking early action gain familiarity with the UI.

3. Dependent Option Sets

The October update introduces dependent option sets.

Using native functionality, this will more accurately capture data with option sets that are contextual to previous field entries without the need to involve custom code.

This is just one example of new functionality that will be exclusive to the Unified Interface.

4. Custom Controls in Process Flows

For both the Unified Interface and classic web UI, sliders, switches and other custom controls will now be supported within guided business process flows.

By enabling administrators to apply greater customization these processes can be made more interactive.

5. Closer Integration with LinkedIn

In v9 with Sales Navigator connected, LinkedIn widgets can be added that provide added insights about contacts and companies within the Dynamics interface but these offer limited scope for customisation.

By using the new customizable controls for process flows it will now be possible to embed LinkedIn insights within process flows.

Within the initial stage of a lead, this could promote LinkedIn data to highlight conversation starters to support connection requests.

At each stage, controls can be configured to show LinkedIn insights about individual contacts and companies.

This includes Teamlink that leverages your organisation's LinkedIn network to identify colleague who may be able to make an introduction.

6. Web Portal Integrations

New SharePoint integration for web portals will enable document libraries to be shared with users within the Portal UI with controls to manage uploads and file deletion permissions.

Additional controls will enable Power BI visualizations to be embedded within portal pages. Personalized views of dashboards and reports will be presentable via the portal UI - even if portal users don't have a Power BI account.

7. Microsoft Teams Integration

Initially available through a public preview, the October 2018 release will introduce new integration with Teams.

This will make it possible for a D365 record to be pinned to an associated Team and be accessible to all members within the Teams UI, even if members aren't Dynamics users.

8. Set Regarding Enhancements

Using the 'Set Regarding' control in the App for Outlook will be made easier by filtering the entities that appear.

As a result, this will avoid users having to scroll through a long list of irrelevant entity types.

9. AI Capabilities

The October 2018 preview guide references a slew of new Artificial Intelligence capabilities that introduce more prescriptive and proactive insights.

These are most in evidence within the Sales app and the next update will include previews of new AI powered controls to:

  • Recommend follow up tasks and other actions immediately when notes are added
  • Promote conversation starters by identifying talking points from tracked emails
  • Help sales managers quickly gain performance insights across their team via a new AI for Sales app
  • Provide predictive lead scoring

10. Resource Scheduling

The Universal Resource Scheduler used in the Field Service app will now offer additional flexibility to assign work orders to resource groups.

New 'Crew' scheduling means that people and other resources can be grouped together for a specific period of time.

This is designed to fit scenarios where a team remain together in carrying out a series of jobs during a day.

Further scheduling enhancements include:

  • Associate resources with a resource pool and schedule work orders to pools in the first instance
  • Schedule job to take place at a designated facility
  • Use resource capacity match work order effort required with available resource capacity
  • Split the schedule board into for easier navigation
  • Mix and match pools, crews and individual members as required

Finally, the URS will now be available in the Customer Service app to replace the legacy service scheduling functionality.

11. New Power Platform Capabilities

Through continuing investments in the Power platform, these capabilities combine across Power BI, PowerApps and Microsoft Flow underpinned by the Common Data Service for Apps.

This provides an unrivaled array of tools to extend, customize and integrate Dynamics 365 apps and Office 365 into your environment.

In the October 2018 update, Flow, PowerApps and CDS will be unified in the same interface to help administrators more easily trade app activity and usage.

12. App Solution Checker

A new solution checker will help to identify PowerApps performance issues and highlight any API's that are due to be deprecated.

These actions will be rolled up into a scorecard to prioritize the most critical improvements needed

13. Embed Canvas PowerApps into Entity Forms

Canvas apps support connections to more than 200 data sources including cloud services.

App designers will now be able to bring these capabilities directly into model-driven D365 entity forms in the same way that custom controls are added with support for look-ups and option sets.

Further controls will enable the size of each canvas app to be customised, or create apps with a responsive layout.

14. Social Engagement

A new set-up process will help new users quickly get started with Microsoft Social Engagement.

Microsoft say this will include a guided experience to define search topics. Historical data will then be acquired and immediately loaded.

We've shared more detail about what's coming soon in the October 2018 update across these Customer Engagement apps:

          Scientists trained an AI to write poetry, and now it’s standing toe-to-toe with Shakespeare      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
If science fiction has taught us anything it's that artificial intelligence will one day lead to the downfall of the entirety of mankind. That day is (probably) still a long way away, if it ever actually happens, but for now we get to enjoy some of the nicer aspects of AI, such as its ability to write poetic masterpieces. Researchers in Australia in partnership with the University of Toronto have developed an algorithm capable of writing poetry. Far from your generic rhymes, this AI actually follows the rules, taking metre into account as it weaves its words. The AI is good. Really good. And it's even capable of tricking humans into thinking that its poems were penned by a man instead of a machine. According to the researchers, the AI was trained extensively on the rules it needed to follow to craft an acceptable poem. It was fed nearly 3,000 sonnets as training, and the algorithm tore them apart to teach itself how the words worked with each other. Once the bot was brought up to speed it was tasked with crafting some poems of its own. Here's a sample:
With joyous gambols gay and still array No longer when he twas, while in his day At first to pass in all delightful ways Around him, charming and of all his days
Not bad, huh? Of course, knowing that an AI made it might make it feel more stilted and dry than if you had read it without any preconceptions, but there's no denying that it's a fine poem. In fact, the poems written by the AI follow the rules of poetry even more closely than human poets like Shakespeare. I guess that's the cold machine precision kicking in. When the bot's verses were mixed with human-written poems, and then scoured by volunteers, the readers were split 50-50 over who wrote them. That's a pretty solid vote of confidence in the AI's favor, but there were still some things that gave the bot away, including errors in wording and grammar. Still, it's a mighty impressive achievement. Perhaps when our robot overlords enslave humanity we'll at least be treated to some nice poetry.
          For Some Hard-To-Find Tumors, Doctors See Promise In Artificial Intelligence      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Artificial intelligence, which is bringing us everything from self-driving cars to personalized ads on the web, is also invading the world of medicine. In radiology, this technology is increasingly helping doctors in their jobs. A computer program that assists doctors in diagnosing strokes garnered approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration earlier this year. Another that helps doctors diagnose broken wrists in X-ray images won FDA approval on May 24. One particularly intriguing line of research seeks to train computers to diagnose one of the deadliest of all malignancies, pancreatic cancer, when the disease is still readily treatable. That's the vision of Dr. Elliot Fishman , a professor of radiology at Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore. Artificial intelligence and radiology seem like a natural match, since so much of the task of reading images involves pattern recognition. It's a dream that's been decades in the making, Fishman says. "When I started in radiology, they said

          A world without Facebook      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Since 2016, we've learned in drip-drip-drip revelations how our social media giants, especially Facebook, have made us disconnected divided, discordant, isolated into like-minded silos, and manipulated by hackers working for the Kremlin.

Why it matters: For many years, becoming "connected" has been the zeitgeist — to long-lost family, friends, whole new communities, potential business partners at home and abroad, perhaps a romantic interest.


We asked the question of experts from a number of fields — what would be the pluses and minuses if you just could snap your fingers and make Facebook disappear?

  • No one cheered the idea of losing Facebook entirely; yet all found something seriously wrong with the current state of affairs.
  • Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group, said a world without Facebook would mean "less time spent online, less addictive consumer-driven behavior in citizens, less algorithm driven personalized-news, less fake news, less political polarization in population. Breathing room for non-social media."
  • But it would also mean "value destruction for shareholders, job losses, negative impact on economy. Ceding social media battle globally to China-driven monopolies. A big win for TenCent/WeChat," Bremmer said in an email.

Nicholas Wright, a British neurologist who studies artificial intelligence and politics, contemplating a government shutdown of the platform, said such an action "would be a terrible blow to the U.S. capitalist system. How could anyone trust the Government not to shut down other companies and lay off tens of thousands of workers etc.?"

  • One thing is that it's not necessary to outright kill Facebook, said Scott Galloway, a NYU professor and author of The Four, a critique of U.S. big tech who called for Facebook's breakup under anti-trust laws.

But both Galloway and Wright found plenty to like about the idea of Facebook's disappearance, too.

  • "FB has fomented the false notion that connecting the world is a good thing," Galloway said. "We, as a species, are tribal and lies spread faster than truth. With no guardrails or (expensive) human discretion screening content/advertisers, we have offered up the mother of all Trojan horses for bad actors."
  • "Power corrupts, and Facebook is corrupted," Galloway said.
  • More competition would arise absent Facebook, Wright said, and less control of personal data."Preventing excessive integration of data is crucial to prevent us sleepwalking into constructing authoritarian capabilities," he said.

The big picture: The same criticism can justifiably be made against Twitter, YouTube and Google generally, and — in a broader sense — Amazon. Complaints about algorithms and monopolistic behavior are on the rise. But all also have a defense of creating a broadly valued service.

          This startup is raising $750 million to outmaneuver Domino's and Pizza Hut with pizzas made by robots — check it out      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

zume pizza robot 0330

Robots could kill off jobs in the future — but at least they come bearing pizza.

Founded in 2015, Zume Pizza uses robotics and artificial intelligence to make pizza more quickly. Machines press mounds of dough, squirt and spread sauce, and lift pizzas in and out of the oven, in a fraction of the time it would take human workers to do the same.

Now SoftBank is in talks to invest up to $750 million in Zume, Bloomberg reports. The cash infusion could help ramp up the pizza delivery company's side hustle, creating technology for other restaurants that want to get into the automated food truck game.

An increasing number of pizza eaters are ditching legacy brands like Domino's and Pizza Hut for newer fast-casual and delivery chains. In 2016, Business Insider toured Zume's headquarters in Mountain View, California, to see if the pizza is as good as its tech.

DON'T MISS: We tried the world's first robot-made burger restaurant that's backed by Google's parent company — here's the verdict

This is no ordinary pizza. It was made by robots.



The concept of a robot-powered pizza delivery service came from friends and cofounders Julia Collins and Alex Garden, who wanted to make high-quality pizza more affordable.



Collins graduated from Stanford Business School, worked as an analyst under Shake Shack founder Danny Meyer, and helped launch New York City fast-casual chain Mexicue. She knew pumping pies full of chemical adulterants wasn't the answer — tech was.

A lot of people use the terms "Machine Learning" and "Artificial Intelligence" interchangeably, and while they are closely related, this perspective is acknowledging just one small part of a much larger story.

Machine Learning is actually a very particular subset of AI in which statistical techniques are employed to give computers the ability to "learn" on their own. Essentially, the more data you feed a computer related to the task you're trying to get it to perform, the better it's able to do just that — all without being literally programmed to do so.

Artificial intelligence, or rather things like machine learning and automation, which are often wrongly called artificial intelligence, is a big thing in oil and gas right now. The hype around AI spreads a lot further than the oil and gas industry, but in it, the technology is making the first splashes and it looks like they are fast multiplying. While “AI”—or more accurately predictive and analytic algorithms, and automation—in the upstream segment of the industry has garnered some attention already, there is a somewhat…

          A company that Google acquired in 2008 could be the key to its plans to re-enter China (GOOGL, GOOG)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Google China

  • Google used one of the sites it owns in China to test a censored search engine.
  • The site is 265.com, which Google acquired in 2008.
  • China's government has indicated Google is welcome back as long as it follows the law.

Details continue to trickle out about Google's work on a search engine built specifically to appease the Chinese government, which keeps a tight grip on the flow of information in that country.

To refine the search engine, Google engineers relied on samples of search queries obtained from 265.com, a Chinese-based web directory that Google acquired in 2008, the Intercept reported Wednesday.  

It was the Intercept that broke the news last week, that Google was building a search engine that complied with China's strict ban on certain web sites and search terms. The move would be a reversal of a 2010 decision by the company to pull search operations out of China rather than censor information.

The apparent flip-flop brought heaps of criticism on Google's leadership, from politicians, media pundits, and even some employees. Earlier this year, Google appeared to put some distance between itself and the military when it promised never to use artificial intelligence to build weapons or cause harm.

Many people asked why Google refused to work with the US military but was seeking to help a communist government supress free speech.  One group that wasn't critical of Google's decision was the Chinese government. Chinese state media welcomed Google back to the country, saying things will be fine as long as the company follows the law, according to a story in The Washington Post

Right now, Google.com and some of the companies other services, such as YouTube are not accessible in China, but 265.com is not blocked, the Intercept reported. 

"It appears that Google," the Intercept wrote, "has used 265.com as a de facto honeypot for market research, storing information about Chinese users’ searches before sending them along to Baidu (Google's largest competitor in China)."

Google did not respond to a request for comment at the time of publication.

          Robots Are Trying To Pick Strawberries. So Far, They're Not Very Good At It      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Robots have taken over many of America's factories. They can explore the depths of the ocean, and other planets. They can play ping-pong. But can they pick a strawberry? "You kind of learn, when you get into this — it's really hard to match what humans can do," says Bob Pitzer, an expert on robots and co-founder of a company called Harvest CROO Robotics . (CROO is an acronym. It stands for Computerized Robotic Optimized Obtainer.) Any 4-year old can pick a strawberry, but machines, for all their artificial intelligence, can't seem to figure it out. Pitzer says the hardest thing for them is just finding the fruit. The berries hide behind leaves in unpredictable places. "You know, I used to work in the semiconductor industry. I was a development engineer for Intel, and it was a lot easier to make semiconductor chips," he says with a laugh. Pitzer's strawberry-picking robot is about to meet its latest test. It's rolling, ever so slowly, into a strawberry field near Duette, Fla. This

          Direct Sales IT Leaders: These 2 Tools Will Help Your Sales Leaders Increase Distributor Performance      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Every IT leader has felt pressure from the sales organization to produce tools that will increase sales.
 
This group is sometimes the hardest to serve - their requests are usually tinged with urgency, and their willingness to spend time with you designing solutions is sometimes limited.
.
 
.
And there's the fact that the fate of the company rests in their hands. They may be difficult to serve, but they need all the help they can get.
So - if you're not using artificial intelligence tools to increase your average order size and frequency, you may want to take a look at what you're missing.
Artificial Intelligence: The Turnkey Technology You're Not Using Yet
 
Artificial intelligence sounds complicated, and when you get down into the nuts and bolts of the technology, it is.
 
However, what you need to know is simple. It can plug right into your organization and your business support systems (like CRM) very simply. This allows it to learn your business and perform high-value tasks, freeing up human labor for the things humans are best at.
The most relevant form of artificial intelligence today is the chatbot, or "bot" for short.
 
Deploying artificial intelligence in the form of a bot is like giving each of your distributors their very own assistant.
 
There are two main ways that you can deploy a bot for your sales team:
  1. Deploying tools that prompt your distributors and contact center reps to take smarter actions
  2. Deploying tools that take those actions automatically
You can use AI in both ways simultaneously if you choose to do so.
 
How Does It Work?
AI plugs right into your CRM and other business support systems, which enables it to process massive amounts of data about customers. Using this data, it can do things like the following:
  1. Determine who's most likely to buy, what product they're most likely to buy, and what message they're most likely to relate to. The AI can pass this data to distributors, who can spend their time pursuing the best candidates with the right offers.
  2. Point out the areas in a high-ranking distributor's downline where he/she can have the biggest impact to boost sales numbers and/or grow the team this month.
  3. Independently message customers who have opted into chatbot communication and remind them of special offers or points that are expiring, offering to complete the transaction right in the chat.
  4. Increasing average order size by identifying the personalized upsells for a customer that have the highest probability of acceptance, and offering those during the customer's checkout on your website, during an instant message chat, or prompting a human contact center rep with the right upsells during a phone conversation with the customer.
Does any of this sound like something your sales team needs?
The good news is, it's not that hard to get started. JourneyTEAM's AI and chatbot experts can help you get started with some simple, high-value scenarios that will get your feet wet and help you see the possibilities for AI in your sales organization.

          AI Filters Down to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 Series Chips      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Qualcomm today announced the Snapdragon 670, an update to the 660. The 670 is based on Qualcomm's Kryo 360 CPU with eight cores: two 2.0 GHz cores target high-power tasks and six 1.7 GHz cores target low-power tasks. The 670 is pared with the Adreno 615 GPU. Together, these contribute to a 15% boost in overall performance and a 25% boost in gaming performance. Similar to the Snapdragon 845 and 710, the Snapdragon 670 brings artificial intelligence / machine learning to mid-range phones and their cameras via the Hexagon 685 DSP. Qualcomm claims the 670 delivers platform-wide AI optimizations with the power to handle advanced operations such as automatic scene recognition and voice recognition. The Spectra 250 image signal processor allows 670-powered cameras to support real-time noise reduction, video noise reduction, and image stabilization. The chip supports Qualcomm's Aqstic, aptX, and aptX HD, as well as displays up to full HD+. On the connectivity front, the 670 includes Qualcomm's X12 modem with LAA, 3-channel carrier aggregation, and 256 QAM for max download speeds of 600 Mbps. The chip also packs Bluetooth 5 and tri-band wifi. Other features include support for Qualcomm QuickCharge 4.0 and the Unity/Unreal gaming engines. Qualcomm says devices with the Snapdragon 670 will debut during the third quarter of the year. The 670 now stands at the top of the 600 series chips. It will find its way into devices that fall in the $300 to $500 range.

          Amazon’s Alexa Is Set To Become More ‘Human-Like,’ And ‘Westworld’ Fans Are Scared      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Amazon's Alexa is set to become more 'human-like'

There is no doubt we currently live in an age of technological advancement. With smartphones and apps to help you out in every area of your life, if the technology were to suddenly fail, many people would find it difficult to adjust back to a life less centered on technology. However, how far is too far as far as technology and artificial intelligence are concerned?

For those that have watched HBO’s Westworld, the answer is fairly simple: don’t create human-like robots and treat them badly or they will rise up and attempt to take over the world.

However, for Amazon and their Alexa virtual assistant device, it appears that they are still eager to create a device that is more “human-like” as they upgrade and develop the still relatively new technology.

Consumer Behavior Study Upends Common Misconception that the Vast Majority of Online Shoppers are Ready-to-Buy

Data from over a half million consumer interactions analyzed by PERQ illustrates the value of a personalized shopping journey for websites selling high-touch, big-ticket items; reveals that the more online tools and assessments consumers engage with, the more likely they are to purchase; offers key tips for improvementIndianapolis, IN – August 8, 2018- PERQ, experts in online consumer engagement and shopping behavior, has released new analysis of consumer call-to-action (CTA) data with key learnings for websites of brick and mortar businesses who sell (or lease) high-consideration, big ticket items – especially in the automotive, home furnishing and multifamily leasing verticals. The research, which looks closely at click-to-conversion behavior as well as the overall online experience, found key patterns in the way consumers approach researching and shopping for big-ticket items. The data illuminates serious flaws in long-held assumptions about what consumers want to do once they’ve reached a website and has significant implications for the efficacy of artificial intelligence (AI) in helping engage these website visitors.“A common misconception for big ticket retailers is that their website visitors are ready-to-buy and are close to the bottom of the shopping funnel, which means that many of these businesses are approaching web engagement in the exact opposite direction of how their customers are behaving,” said Muhammad Yasin, Vice President of Marketing at PERQ. “Our data reveals that most of these online web visitors are in the process of educating themselves, and doing extensive research before they finalize the purchase in person. This presents a major opportunity for businesses to nurture consumers they may otherwise lose before they make the decision to buy.”For example, PERQ’s insights on automotive retailing show that, rather than going to dealer websites for “buy” tools, like credit apps and trade-in appraisals which is what conventional wisdom assumes, 77% of car shoppers on dealership websites are actually at the beginning or middle of the process and are interested in tools that help them make a decision. A similar misconception exists in home furnishing where retailers often treat websites as static, digital brochures and at multifamily websites, where leasing companies fail to engage apartment shoppers early in their research with compelling website content that helps spur the consumer’s decision.Global researcher Gartner[1] says that next-generation customers strongly desire self-service and don’t see the need for a salesperson for tasks that they can — and prefer to — accomplish themselves. AI-powered websites featuring online customer journeys help streamline a shopper’s propensity for self-service by using historical data to hone down choices and next steps and to drive relevant CTAs dynamically for each consumer.Key InsightsThe data revealed insights that all industries can leverage to improve click-to-action conversion and website engagement and shows that AI-enabled websites that intuitively and dynamically change for each consumer’s personal shopping journey delivers improved results both on and offline:InsightFindingsOptimize for mobileConversions increase 50% when websites are optimized for mobile. That includes a 95% increase in banner performance, 167% for sidebars, and 7% for buttons.CTA Placement MattersSidebar click performance improves 200% when moved from top left to bottom right.Multiple Engagements Means Higher Close RateLikelihood to buy increases by 66% for consumers that engage with two CTAs, while the likelihood to buy for those that engage with five CTAs goes up to 230%. “It’s no longer a ‘buy now’ world, especially for retailers who need to capture high research customers and guide them into their brick and mortar location, ” said Yasin. “Our data shows that today's websites must be driven by AI technology as a way to adjust the consumer story and stay relevant to the specific needs and interests of buyers.”Study MethodologyPERQ reviewed consumer data captured from 8 million CTA renderings from more than a half-million visitors on PERQ’s website platform. Data collected includes all types of lead formats, and during all phases of the consumer journey.For more of PERQ’s analysis, click here.About PERQPERQ (www.perq.com), boosts website conversion through its online guided shopping solution which leverages artificial intelligence to dynamically change existing websites to deliver the next best step in each buyer’s shopping journey.

          Notes from Silicon Beach: AI and Hollywood – What is killing you will make you stronger      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

“Hollywood and Silicon Valley are in the same business: producing algorithms,” writes artificial intelligence (AI) pioneer Yves Bergquist, one of a new breed of data scientists focused on the entertainment and media business. Scientists like Berquist believe that to survive and thrive, the media and entertainment industry needs to embrace cognitive science. That’s how they can hope to compete with tech companies and address their failing business models.

The cluster of technologies generally called artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning (ML), including fields such as big data analytics, deep machine learning, semantics and natural language processing, visual and auditory recognition, prediction and personalization, and conversational agents, among others. These tools enable the creation of software that can be taught to learn and program itself – to automate repetitive tasks and to provide insights that were never before possible.

Tech-assisted Content Development

One active area of AI in the industry is content development. For example, the studio-funded think tank, USC Entertainment Technology Center, where Bergquist leads an AI and neuroscience group, is mapping box office returns against elements of the film narrative. Bergquist is working on data breakdowns of movies, as shown in this demo, the work of two Bergquist AI startups, Corto and Novamente:

Another example is Greenlight Essentials, a member of IDEABOOST Network Connect. They have broken down decades of film screenplays into more than 40,000 unique plot elements, analyzing more than 200 million audience profiles to help filmmakers improve scripts, target audiences and improve marketing. Their product’s analytic terminal allows users with neither programming nor mathematics background to explore and discover repeatable patterns from decades of film data.

Scriptonomics is a ML application that breaks down movie scripts by scene, character, location and other components. Writers and producers can leverage insights and comparisons that the tool extracts from its massive database of past successful movies to improve subsequent drafts, as well as aid in making pitches and targeting audiences – as can be seen in this example of Scriptonomics breakdown for Titanic.

Founder Tammuz Dubnov says that Scriptonomics generates a geometric model of a screenplay – its DNA, if you will – to compare and improve elements when compared with financially successful films of the past. As discussed here, Dubnov believes that this data-driven, quantitative filmmaking process will give rise to a new generation of data-assistant content studios that will help create more hits and fewer flops.

RivetAI offers Agile Producer, a pre-production platform that automates script breakdown, storyboard, shot lists, scheduling and budgeting. Before RivetAI, Toronto native Debajyoti Ray built the earlier AI startup, Video AMP. This AI-powered video advertising solution helped him understand how much commercials owe to storytelling. So he decided to build an AI engine based on thousands of movie scripts, both produced and unproduced, which became RivetAI.

Some early RivetAI projects were: Sunspring, a short film starring Thomas Middleditch; a script credited to “Benjamin, an artificially intelligent neural network,” in conjunction with LA-based production company End Cue; “Bubbles,” an animation about Michael Jackson’s chimpanzee that Ray found while analyzing unproduced screenplays, a project Netflix acquired.

RivetAI’s 500 production companies’ customers will feed ever more data to its self-learning system to augment their storytelling efforts. Ray compares RivetAI to AutoCAD – software that began as a drafting tool and has become a central platform for many creative professionals. To that end, RivetAI is developing products for screenwriters, corporate branded content, series television and reality shows.

Content Creation with an AI Assist

Computer-generated visual effects are widely used in blockbuster movies, TV shows and games. Sensei, Adobe’s AI, is now being deployed across the company’s cloud platforms to automate functions and provide intelligence. The more Sensei is used, the smarter it gets.

Also, 3D software giant AutoDesk is moving towards AI-assisted generative design, which the company used on its own new facility in downtown Toronto. Massive Software, which has been used on Peter Jackson’s massive CG films, now uses AI to automate crowd simulation and other time-sucking tasks. Its Ready to Run Agents are prefabricated AI agents that can be dropped into scenes by visual effects artists, saving time in the creation of CGI characters.

Arraiy is a well-funded Silicon Valley startup that uses computer vision and machine learning to automate time-consuming visual effects like rotosoping, to separate layers of an image to allow manipulation. The Black-Eyed Peas’ music video for their song, “Street Living,” utilized Arraiy to superimpose band members over images from the civil rights era.

The work involved in modeling, texturing, lighting, animation and performance will ultimately be automated with machine learning, says Derek Spears, Emmy Award-winning VFX artist for Game of Thrones. “Then, the next frontier will be AI-driven actor performances.”

Simulating People

We’ve seen Carrie Fischer exhumed into Star Wars movies, using past performances. Now we’re seeing the emergence of simulated video and voice. Rival Theory's RAIN AI creates human-like AI for more than 100,000 game developers and agencies. Lyrebird is a tool for the creation of artificial voices. Adobe has demoed Voco, a prototype that generates speech that sounds like a specific person.

Clarifai is a platform that uses “computer vision,” a form of machine learning, to help customers detect and predict demographics of faces, identify celebrities, and much more. Face2Face offers real-time facial capture and reenactment. Check out this clip of a speech by President Barack Obama which he never gave:

Software pioneer Marc Canter has developed a new AI-based storytelling platform called Instigate, which takes an Instagram or Snapchat story and adds intelligence and interactivity to create what he calls “beings” – who then can have content-enabled conversations with friends.

Canter, who developed Micromind Director multimedia authoring tools, sees Instigate as an AI authoring environment for a new form of storytelling. AI makes Instigate’s beings more intelligent than the standard-issue bots that perform repetitive pre-defined tasks. 

The Ubiquity of AI and ML

Over time, this new layer of AI/ML capabilities will become standard for every company and every product’s technology stack. It will generate billions of dollars for companies across the global business value chain. We can see how media businesses such as digital video, advertising, marketing and VR/AR are already fundamentally driven by AI and ML capabilities, as seen in these examples:

  • Digital Video: AI optimizes video encoding and delivery. Visual and pattern recognition automates editing and content creation. AI-based fingerprinting protects copyright and aids in licensing and micropayments. AI detects “anomalies” like piracy, violence, adult and fake content. AI will lead to almost real-time video quality assessment, which will lead to shorter timelines for content release. IBM’s Watson AI platform released what it called a cognitive movie trailer for the Fox film, Morgan, and has automated highlight reels for the World Cup and other sports events.
  • VR and AR: These applications depend on AI to create viable experiences, and are closely aligned with visual effects and game design. Cloud providers Google, Amazon and Microsoft, all of whom are committed to AR and VR as an engine of growth, are embedding AI into the platforms that will increasingly power immersive applications and experiences.

In the end, Hollywood is just like any other industry – as investor Ben Evans put it, “eventually, pretty much everything will have ML somewhere inside and no one will care.”

          Royal Caribbean Introduces SoundSeeker      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Published in: Cruise News

Sound SeekerRoyal Caribbean International has designed and built a first-of-its-kind tool that transforms photos into an original, shareable soundtrack with a video to match. More than a year in the making, SoundSeeker is powered by artificial intelligence.

The tool is specifically designed to use machine learning to seamlessly create original soundtracks based on the content of each photograph, the company said. 

By simply visiting www.SoundSeeker.com, users can upload three photos of their choice, and the AI analyzes them based on color, landscape, backdrop, emotion, body language and facial expression. SoundSeeker then turns them into a shareable and soundtrack – virtually DJing life’s most brag-worthy moments, Royal Caribbean said. 

“SoundSeeker is the latest proof point of Royal Caribbean innovation and how we focus it on delivering unexpected, memorable experiences; whether that is the SkyPad, which uniquely combines bungee jumping with virtual reality or live streaming your favorite shows from the middle of the ocean using VOOM, the fastest internet at sea,” said Jim Berra, chief marketing officer, Royal Caribbean International. “People of all ages crave new ways to share their best experiences on social media. This unprecedented tool allows you to put a completely unique, multisensory spin on sharing those memories – now friends and followers can see and hear your life’s adventures.” 

Royal Caribbean teamed up with experts from Berklee College of Music, and technologists from around the world, to create the unique song generator.

“We were excited to work with Royal Caribbean International on this new technological innovation, and in the process, redefine what creative collaboration means," said Panos A. Panay, Berklee vice president for Innovation and Strategy and managing director of BerkleeICE. “The work of BerkleeICE expands our students’ definition of what can be accomplished with music education by pushing the boundaries of creative expression utilizing technology. By harnessing AI to develop customized soundtracks for treasured memories, together, we have created a new way for people to share their experiences with one another.”

SoundSeeker uses machine learning, an artificial intelligence technique that enables computers to simulate human intelligence and make decisions on their own without explicit instructions. The learning process entailed more than 600 hours in which Royal Caribbean and a team of musicians and technologists reviewed hundreds of music tracks along with 10,000 photos, matching each of the 2.5 million combinations to one of 10 moods.

The AI in SoundSeeker uses Google Cloud Vision to identify objects, facial expressions and colors in a user’s photo by referencing the roadmap developed by the leaders in music theory at Berklee. SoundSeeker then finds the musical elements corresponding to each mood in the photo to compose a genuinely distinct audio and visual photo album. The Royal Caribbean tool is equipped to generate over one million unique tracks, based on custom base tracks, composed exclusively for the cruise line. The customized tracks take inspiration from a wide variety of music, including 90s hip-hop, rock, modern and electronic dance music.

Crossing $1 Trillion: What’s Next for Apple?  in K@W

Former Apple CEO John Sculley and Erik Gordon from the University of Michigan discuss Apple's $1 trillion market capitalization. 

Consumer electronics giant Apple is finding itself in a whole new race after last Thursday, when its share price rose to $207, making it the first U.S. company to cross $1 trillion in market capitalization.

As Apple and its CEO, Tim Cook, set their sights on the future, experts from Wharton and elsewhere point out that the company does face some challenges: Apple’s smartphone sales have slowed (although margins have gone up); it has no big-bang product around the corner, notably in augmented reality or artificial intelligence (AI); its R&D investments are lagging; and its next big leap may take place under a different CEO.

Meanwhile, other tech giants such as Amazon, Google’s parent Alphabet and Microsoft are close runners-up in the trillion-dollar race, heralding a new era of large, cash-rich companies. Platforms and ecosystems are critical to success in the next round, and some predict that Amazon looks poised to become the first $2 trillion company, especially with its ability to seemingly enter any industry it chooses to.  ....

          10 things you need to know in markets today      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

china shipping port container export import trade

Good morning! Here's what you need to know in markets on Thursday.

1. Chinese state media on Thursday accused the United States of a "mobster mentality" in its move to implement additional tariffs on Chinese goods, and warned that Beijing had all the necessary means to fight back. The comments mark a ratcheting up in tensions between the world's two largest economies over a trade dispute, which is already impacting industries ranging from steel to cars and causing unease over which products could be targeted next.

2. Asian shares were subdued on Thursday after a new round of tit-for-tat tariffs in the US-Sino trade conflict torpedoed oil prices, while the Russian rouble tumbled as the US slapped fresh sanctions on the country. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan barely budged as caution dominated. Japan's Nikkei slipped 0.12% as of 7:43 a.m. BST (2.43 a.m. ET). The Russian Ruble had stabilised against the dollar at the same time.

3. The pound fell below $1.29 for the first time since September 2017 on Wednesday as fears about a possible no-deal Brexit continued. The currency continued to fall on Thursday morning, down 0.11% to $1.2875 at 7:58 a.m. BST (2.58 a.m. ET).

4. Intel on Wednesday said it sold $1 billion of artificial intelligence processor chips in 2017, the first time the world's second-largest chipmaker disclosed revenue from the fast-growing computing segment. As PC sales have stagnated, Intel has increasingly been depending on its sales to data centers, which provide behind-the-scenes computing power for mobile and web-based apps.

5. The New York City Council on Wednesday agreed to cap the number of licenses for ride-hailing services such as Uber for one year, dealing a blow to the companies that have relied on the largest US metro area for a major source of their revenue. The City Council measure was aimed at reducing traffic congestion and increasing driver paychecks in the wake of the explosive growth of for-hire vehicles and a rash of suicides among New York's "Yellow Cab" drivers who have seen their incomes fall.

6. China has revamped a national leadership group charged with planning and studying its key technological development strategies, signaling potential policy shifts are underway as its technological ambitions fueled a backlash abroad.The group, formerly called the "National Technology and Education leadership Group" under the state Cabinet, has been renamed without the mention of education to reflect a focus on technology. Shares of China's leading tech firms rallied on Thursday, with investors expecting a policy boost for their sector.

7. Twenty-First Century Fox's quarterly revenue jumped 17.7% as the Rupert Murdoch-controlled media company received higher fees from cable distributors. Fox said on Wednesday net income attributable to shareholders increased to $920 million or 49 cents per share in the fourth quarter ended June 30, from $476 million or 26 cents per share a year earlier.

8. German-owned discount supermarket Aldi is rolling out scores of new products in the United States, it said on Thursday, in an aggressive push to expand in the country even as rivals are struggling in a drawn-out price war. Aldi, the world's No. 5 retailer owned by Aldi Sud, embarked on a $5 billion plan last year to remodel and expand its US chain to 2,500 by the end of 2022 from 1,600 in June 2017.

9. Conservationists on Wednesday notified the Trump administration that they would sue over its reversal of a 2014 decision prohibiting bee-killing pesticides and genetically modified crops on US wildlife refuges.

Today's industrial robots have become more flexible in the range of applications, with easy positioning and friendlier interfaces. Leading manufacturers of industrial robots are focusing on manufacturing robots that are simpler to configure and program, and easier in integrating with technologies, which create incredible functioning. This has led toward the emergence of collaborative robots or "cobots". Applications of collaborative robots for working with humans are increasing in bandwidth, with soaring adoption of various sensing technologies.

Popularity of industrial robots is increasing, however barriers exist for adoption in low-volume production, albeit rate of industrial robots deployment is rising in small- and medium-scale industries. Industrial robots are designed based on the requirements of application, and therefore incur the inevitable process of modification or reconfiguration with every change in application. Adoption of industrial robots in low-volume production is hindered by the fact that cost of reinstallation and reconfiguration is considerably high for such kind of production process.

Key Research Findings from FMI's Report on Industrial Robots Market

Semi-automatic technology-based industrial robots will witness highest sales, in terms of volume, and are projected to expand at a CAGR of above 15% through 2026. Manual robots will continue to be least lucrative in the market.

Owing to their safety, cost-effectiveness, and job efficiency, number of robot deployments has gained an upsurge in the automotive industry. Volume sales of industrial robots for automotive end use will remain relatively higher than all the other end use segments included in the report.

Demand for industrial robots for end use in healthcare, electrical & electronics and construction sectors will also remain high, in term if volume during the forecast period. In addition, sales of industrial robots for end use in healthcare will exhibit the fastest expansion through 2026.

Requirement for handling heavy components in harsh working environments has led toward increased adoption of industrial robots for material handling processes. Industrial robots deployed in material handling are able to handle heavy payloads, along with being useful in specific production lines that include huge and heavy machine parts. Material handling application of industrial robots will account for the largest volume share of the market by 2026-end.

Parallel robots, Cartesian robots and articulated robots are expected to remain top-selling products in the market, in terms of volume. However, sales of articulated robots will register a relatively lower CAGR than that of parallel and Cartesian robots through 2026. Cylindrical robots will reflect the fastest expansion in sales in the market through 2026.

Asia-Pacific excluding Japan and Europe will continue to be dominant in the global industrial robots market, in terms of volume. In contrast, adoption of industrial robots in Middle East & Africa and Latin America will remain sluggish during 2017 to 2026.

Prominent Industry Players are leveraging their Market Expertise for Diversifying into Service Robots

          These 4 Antivirus Tools Are Using AI to Protect Your System      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The future of antivirus protection is exciting. Much like our cars, trains, and boats, the future of antivirus runs on artificial intelligence. AI technology is one of the fastest growing sectors around the world and security researchers are continually evaluating and integrating the technology into their consumer products.

Consumer antivirus products with AI or machine learning elements are appearing thick and fast. Does your next antivirus subscription need to include AI, or is it just another security buzzword? Let’s take a look.

Traditional Antivirus vs. AI Antivirus

The term “artificial intelligence” once conjured fantastical images of futuristic technology, but AI is now a reality. To understand what AI antivirus is, you need to understand how traditional antivirus works.

Traditional Antivirus

A traditional antivirus uses file and data signatures, and pattern analysis to compare potential malicious activity to previous instances. That is, the antivirus knows what the malicious file looks like, and can move swiftly to stop those files from infecting your system, should you pick one up. That’s a very basic explanation. You can read more about how it works and what scans to use right here The 3 Types of Antivirus Scans and When to Use Each One The 3 Types of Antivirus Scans and When to Use Each One Scanning your system with an antivirus program is important for keeping your system secure. But which type of antivirus scan should you use? Full, Quick, or Custom? Read More .

The antivirus on your system works well, don’t get me wrong. However, the number of malware attacks continues to rise, and security researchers regularly discover extremely advanced malware variants, such as Mylobot What Is Mylobot Malware? How It Works and What to Do About It What Is Mylobot Malware? How It Works and What to Do About It Every so often, a truly new malware strain appears. Mylobot is a perfect example. Learn more about what it is, why it's dangerous, and what to do about it. Read More . Furthermore, some traditional or legacy antivirus solutions cannot compete with advanced threats such as the devastating WannaCry ransomworm The Global Ransomware Attack and How to Protect Your Data The Global Ransomware Attack and How to Protect Your Data A massive cyberattack has struck computers around the globe. Have you been affected by the highly virulent self-replicating ransomware? If not, how can you protect your data without paying the ransom? Read More , or the Petya ransomware that encrypts your Master Boot Record Will The Petya Ransomware Crack Bring Back Your Files? Will The Petya Ransomware Crack Bring Back Your Files? A new ransomware variant, Petya, has been cracked by an irate victim. This is a chance to get one over on the cybercriminals, as we show you how to unlock your ransomed data. Read More .

As the threat landscape shifts, so must the antivirus detection mechanisms.

AI Antivirus

AI antivirus (or in some cases, machine learning―more on this distinction in a moment) works differently. There are a few different approaches, but AI antivirus learns about specific threats within its network environment and executes defensive activities without prompt.

AI and machine learning antivirus leverage sophisticated mathematical algorithms combined with the data from other deployments to understand what the baseline of security is for a given system. As well as this, they learn how to react to files that step outside that window of normal functionality.

Machine Learning vs. Artificial Intelligence

Another important distinction in the future of antivirus is between machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence. The two words are sometimes used interchangeably but are not the same thing.

Artificial Intelligence (AI): AI refers to programs and machines that execute tasks with the characteristics of human intelligence Google Duplex Will Identify Itself as an AI Google Duplex Will Identify Itself as an AI Google Duplex was quite the talking point at I/O 2018, with serious morality questions being asked about the AI. However, Google has now made it clear Duplex will identify itself as not human. Read More , including problem-solving, forward planning, and learning. Broadly speaking, machines that can carry out human tasks in a manner we consider “intelligent.” Machine Learning (ML): ML refers to a broad spectrum of the current applications of AI technologies focusing on the idea that machines with data access and the correct programming can learn for themselves. Broadly speaking, machine learning is a means to an end for achieving AI What Is Machine Learning? Google's Free Course Breaks It Down for You What Is Machine Learning? Google's Free Course Breaks It Down for You Google has designed a free online course to teach you the fundamentals of machine learning. Read More .

Machine learning and AI are deeply intertwined, and you can see how the terms see occasional misuse. The difference in meaning with regards to antivirus is an important distinction. Most (if not all) of the latest antivirus suites implement some form of machine learning, but some algorithms are more advanced than others.

Machine learning in antivirus technologies isn’t new. It is getting more intelligent, and is easier to use as a marketing tool now that the wider public is more aware of ML and AI.

How Security Companies Use AI in Antivirus

There are a few antivirus solutions that use advanced algorithms to protect your system, but the use of true AI is still rare. Still, there are several antivirus tools with excellent AI and ML implementations that show how the security industry is evolving to protect you from the latest threats.

1. Cylance Smart Antivirus

Cylance is a well-known name in machine learning and artificial intelligence cybersecurity. The enterprise-grade CylancePROTECT uses AI-techniques to protect a huge number of businesses, and they count several Fortune 100 organizations among their clientele. Cylance Smart Antivirus is their first foray into consumer antivirus products, bringing that enterprise-level AI protection into your home.

Cylance Smart Antivirus relies entirely on AI and ML to distinguish malware from legitimate data. The result is an antivirus that doesn’t bog your system down by constantly scanning and analyzing files. ( Or informing you of its status every 15-minutes Top Free Antivirus Apps Without Nag Screens and Bloatware Top Free Antivirus Apps Without Nag Screens and Bloatware Nagging antivirus apps are a huge pain. You don't have to put up with them, even for free. Here are the best antivirus programs that don't come with popups or bundled junk. Read More .) Rather, Cylance Smart Antivirus waits until the moment of execution and immediately kills the threat―without human intervention.

“Consumers deserve security software that is fast, easy to use, and effective,” said Christopher Bray, senior vice president, Cylance Consumer. “The consumer antivirus market is long overdue for a ground-breaking solution built on robust technology that allows them to control their security environment.”

Thanks for the shout out @sawaba I can vouch that the primary reason we launched Cylance Smart Antivirus is because our customers have told us they’ve grown frustrated with everything on the market now.

― Hiep Dang (@Hiep_Dang) June 19, 2018

Smart Antivirus does, however, have some downsides. Unlike other antivirus suites with active monitoring, Cylance Smart Antivirus allows you to visit potentially malicious sites. I assume this is confidence that the product will stop malicious downloads, but it doesn’t protect against phishing attacks or similar threats.

A single Cylance Smart Antivirus license costs $29 per year , while a $69 household pack lets you install on five different systems.

2. Deep Instinct D-Client

Deep Instinct uses deep learning (a machine learning technique) to detect “any file before it is accessed or executed” on your system. The Deep Instinct D-Client makes use of static file analysis in conjunction with a threat prediction model that allows it to eliminate malware and other system threats autonomously.

Deep Instinct’s D-Client uses vast quantities of raw data to continue improving its detection algorithms. Deep Instinct is one of the only companies with private deep learning infrastructure dedicated to improving their detection accuracy, too.

3. Avast Free Antivirus

For most people, Avast is a familiar name in security. Avast Free Antivirus is the most popular antivirus on the market, and its history of protections goes back decades. Avast Free Antivirus has been “using AI and machine learning for years” to protect users from evolving threats. In 2012, the Avast Research Lab announced three powerful backend tools for their products.

The “Malware Similarity Search” allows almost instantaneous categorization of huge samples of incoming malware. Avast Free Antivirus quickly analyzes similarities between existing malware files using both static and dynamic analysis. “Evo-Gen” is similar “but a bit subtler in nature.” Evo-Gen is a genetic algorithm that works to find short and generic descriptions of malware in massive datasets. “MDE” is a database that works on top of the indexed data, allowing heavy parallel access.

These three machine learning technologies collectively evolved as the foundation for Avast’s CyberCapture .

CyberCapture is a core feature of the Avast security suite, specifically targeting unknown malware and zero-days. When an unknown suspicious file enters a system, CyberCapture activates and immediately isolates the host system. The suspect file automatically uploads to an Avast cloud server for data analysis. Afterwards, the user receives a positive or negative notification regarding the status of the file. All the while, your data is feeding back into the algorithms to define further and enhance yours and others’ system security.

4. Windows Defender Security Center

The Windows Defender Security Center for enterprise and business solutions will receive a phenomenal boost as Microsoft turns to artificial intelligence to bulk out its security. The 2017 WannaCry ransomworm ripped through Windows systems Prevent WannaCry Malware Variants by Disabling This Windows 10 Setting Prevent WannaCry Malware Variants by Disabling This Windows 10 Setting WannaCry has thankfully stopped spreading, but you should still disable the old, insecure protocol it exploited. Here's how to do it on your own computer in just a moment. Read More after hackers released a CIA trove of zero-day vulnerabilities into the wild.

Microsoft is creating a 400 million computer-strong machine learning network to build its next generation of security tools. The new AI-backed security features will start with its enterprise customers, but eventually filter down to Windows 10 systems for regular consumers. Windows Defender is constantly improving in other ways, too, and is now one of the top enterprise and consumer security solutions . The below image illustrates a snapshot of how Windows Defender machine learning protections works.


These 4 Antivirus Tools Are Using AI to Protect Your System

Want a prime example of how machine learning antivirus springs into action? Randy Treit, a senior security researcher for Windows Defender Research, writes up the Bad Rabbit ransomware detection example . It’s worth a read (it’s short!).

Antivirus: More Advanced Than You Realized

Is your antivirus suite more advanced than you realized? Machine learning and artificial intelligence are undoubtedly making larger inroads with security products. But their current prominence is more buzzword than effective deployment.

Try not to worry too much about whether your antivirus has AI or is implementing machine learning techniques. In the meantime, here’s a comparison of the best free antivirus products The 10 Best Free Anti-Virus Programs The 10 Best Free Anti-Virus Programs You must know by now: you need antivirus protection.

1207 An educational institution is founded for the study of the works of Bhaskara II, an Indian mathematician and astronomer.*VFR
Bhaskara II was rightly achieved an outstanding reputation for his remarkable contribution. In 1207 an educational institution was set up to study Bhaskaracharya's ("Bhaskara the teacher")works. A medieval inscription in an Indian temple reads: Triumphant is the illustrious Bhaskaracharya whose feats are revered by both the wise and the learned. A poet endowed with fame and religious merit, he is like the crest on a peacock. It is from this quotation that the title of Joseph's book comes. *SAU


1654 Fermat to Carcavi "Monsieur, I was overjoyed to have had the same thoughts as those of M. Pascal, for I greatly admire his genius and I believe him to be capable of solving any problem he attempts. The friendship he offers is so dear to me and so precious that I shall not scruple to take advantage of it in publishing an edition of my Treatises. If it does not shock you, you could both help in bringing out this edition, and I suggest that you should be the editors: you could clarify or augment what seems too brief and thus relieve me of a care which my work prevents me from taking. I would like this volume to appear without my name even, leaving to you the choice of designation which would indicate the author, whom you could qualify simply as a friend." *York Univ Hist of Stats.

1658 Simon Douw obtains a patent for a pendulum clock that will draw Huygen’s attack in Horologium. “Today, no clock by Simon Douw is known; I find that most curious, it is as if he has been excised from history, deliberately. Dutch Court papers described Douw as "City clockmaker of Rotterdam... a master in the art of great tower, domestic or office clocks", ("en meester in de kunst van groote Toorn, Camer ofte Comptoirwerken"). Yet his mechanical insights. his escapement, also his drive mechanisms, are best, and now only, revealed by his Patent Grant on August 9th, 1658, and by the evidence and judgement in a claim and counterclaim started in the Provinces of Holland and West Friesland, but then referred to the Court of The Netherlands in October 1658, with a Judgement by Consent on December 5th, 1658. And that case went entirely in Douw's favour, against the highly favoured joint Complainants Huygens and Coster.
In itself, that is remarkable. Huygens, the Noble patrician, the most famous Dutch scientist, and the self-professed inventor of the pendulum clock, who had in the course of this trial published "Horologium", was forced by the judges to settle the case rather than face unfavourable verdict; also to concede Consent; also one-third Royalties to Douw. It would have been a crushing humiliation for Huygens, the seed of his libels. Subsequently, the Lower Court of Holland, Zeeland and Friesland confirmed to Douw, on December 16th and 19th 1658, their Upper Court's judgement by consent”. * From Keith Piggott

BIRTHS

1537 Franciscus Barocius (9 August 1537 – 23 November 1604) born. In 1560 he published the first important translation of Proclus’ commentary on the first book of Euclid’s Elements. In 1587 he was brought before the Inquisition on charges of sorcery, more particularly of having caused a torrential rainstorm in Crete. *VFR

1602 Gilles de Roberval (August 9, 1602 – October 27, 1675)(His date of birth is given as 8th, 9th and 10th in various sources) was a French scientist who developed powerful methods in the early study of integration.*SAU Roberval was one of those mathematicians who, just before the invention of the infinitesimal calculus, occupied their attention with problems which are only soluble, or can be most easily solved, by some method involving limits or infinitesimals, which would today be solved by calculus. He worked on the quadrature of surfaces and the cubature of solids, which he accomplished, in some of the simpler cases, by an original method which he called the "Method of Indivisibles"; but he lost much of the credit of the discovery as he kept his method for his own use, while Bonaventura Cavalieri published a similar method which he independently invented.
Another of Roberval’s discoveries was a very general method of drawing tangents, by considering a curve as described by a moving point whose motion is the resultant of several simpler motions. (The limacon was named by Roberval in 1650 when he used it as an example of his methods of drawing tangents.)
He also discovered a method of deriving one curve from another, by means of which finite areas can be obtained equal to the areas between certain curves and their asymptotes. To these curves, which were also applied to effect some quadratures, Evangelista Torricelli gave the name "Robervallian lines."
(He also wrote a) work on the system of the universe, in which he supports the Copernican heliocentric system and attributes a mutual attraction to all particles of matter. *Wik
 I was recently informed (2018) by Vincent Panteloni that in France, the balance scale, "We refer to such a scale by saying 'une balance de Roberval'".

1757 Thomas Telford (9 August 1757 Glendinning, Westerkirk, Eskdale, Dumfriesshire, Scotland - 2 September 1834 (aged 77) 24 Abingdon Street, Westminster, London) He is the founder of modern bridge construction, his crowning achievement being the Menai suspension bridge in Wales. Do you know the shape of the cables on a suspension bridge? *VFR

1776 Count Amedeo Avogadro (9 August 1776, Turin, Piedmont – 9 July 1856) Italian chemist and physicist who found that at the same temperature and pressure equal volumes of all perfect gases contain the same number of particles, known as Avogadro's Law (1811) leading to the Avogadro's constant being 6.022 x 1023 units per mole of a substance. He realized the particules could be either atoms, or more often, combinations of atoms, for which he coined the word "molecule." This explained Gay-Lussac's law of combining volumes (1809). Further, Avogadro determined from the electrolysis of water that it contained molecules formed from two hydrogen atoms for each atom of oxygen, by which the individual oxygen atom was 16 times heavier than one hydrogen atom (not 8 times as suggested earlier by Dalton.) The Italian, Romano Amadeo Carlo Avogadro, had suggested [in 1811] that all gases have the same number of molecules in a given volume. Loschmidt figured out [in 1865] how many molecules that would be. John D. Cook suggested that maybe it should be called Loschmidt's constant, and pointed out three interesting coincidences involving Avogadro's Constant:
NA is approximately 24! (i.e., 24 factorial.)
The mass of the earth is approximately 10 NA kilograms.
The number of stars in the observable universe is 0.5 NA.
*John D. Cook, The Endeavour Blog

1819 Jonathan Homer Lane (August 9, 1819, Geneseo, New York – May 3, 1880, Washington D.C.) U.S. astrophysicist who was the first to investigate mathematically the Sun as a gaseous body. His work demonstrated the interrelationships of pressure, temperature, and density inside the Sun and was fundamental to the emergence of modern theories of stellar evolution.*TIS

1911 William Alfred "Willie" Fowler (August 9, 1911 – March 14, 1995)
American astrophysicist. He should not be confused with the British astronomer Alfred Fowler.
Fowler won the Henry Norris Russell Lectureship of the American Astronomical Society in 1963, the Eddington Medal in 1978, the Bruce Medal in 1979, and the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1983 for his theoretical and experimental studies of the nuclear reactions of importance in the formation of the chemical elements in the universe (shared with Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar). *TIA

1919 Leona Woods (August 9, 1919 – November 10, 1986), later known as Leona Woods Marshall and Leona Woods Marshall Libby, was an American physicist who helped build the first nuclear reactor and the first atomic bomb.
At age 23, she was the youngest and only female member of the team which built and experimented with the world's first nuclear reactor (then called a pile ), Chicago Pile-1, in a project led by her mentor Enrico Fermi. In particular, Woods was instrumental in the construction and then utilization of geiger counters for analysis during experimentation. She was the only woman present when the reactor went critical. She worked with Fermi on the Manhattan Project, and, together with her first husband John Marshall, she subsequently helped solve the problem of xenon poisoning at the Hanford plutonium production site, and supervised the construction and operation of Hanford's plutonium production reactors.
After the war, she became a fellow at Fermi's Institute for Nuclear Studies. She later worked at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Princeton, New Jersey, the Brookhaven National Laboratory, and New York University, where she became a professor in 1962. Her research involved high-energy physics, astrophysics and cosmology. In 1966 she divorced Marshall and married Nobel laureate Willard Libby. She became a professor at the University of Colorado, and a staff member at RAND Corporation. In later life she became interested in ecological and environmental issues, and she devised a method of using the isotope ratios in tree rings to study climate change. She was a strong advocate of food irradiation as a means of killing harmful bacteria. *Wik

1927 Marvin Minsky (August 9, 1927 - January 24, 2016 (aged 88)) Biochemist and the founder of the MIT Artificial Intelligence Project. Marvin Minsky has made many contributions to AI, cognitive psychology, mathematics, computational linguistics, robotics, and optics. He holds several patents, including those for the first neural-network simulator (SNARC, 1951), the first head-mounted graphical display, the first confocal scanning microscope, and the LOGO "turtle" device. His other inventions include mechanical hands and the "Muse" synthesizer for musical variations (with E. Fredkin). In recent years he has worked chiefly on imparting to machines the human capacity for commonsense reasoning. *TIS He died in Boston of a cerebral hemorrhage .

1940 Linda Goldway Keen (8 August 1940- ) In addition to studying Riemann surfaces, Keen has worked in hyperbolic geometry, Kleinian groups and Fuchsian groups, complex analysis, and hyperbolic dynamics. In the field of hyperbolic geometry, she is known for the Collar lemma.
Keen has worked at the Institute for Advanced Study, Hunter College, University of California at Berkeley, Columbia University, Boston University, Princeton University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, as well as at various mathematical institutes in Europe and South America. After her initial appointment in 1965, in 1974 Keen was promoted to Full Professor at Lehman College and the CUNY Graduate Center.
Keen served as president of the Association for Women in Mathematics during 1985-1986 and as vice-president of the American Mathematical Society during 1992-1995. She served on the Board of Trustees of the American Mathematical Society from 1999-2009 and as Associate Treasurer from 2009-2011. In 1975, she presented an AMS invited address and in 1989 she presented an MAA joint invited address. In 1993 she was selected as a Noether Lecturer. *Wik

1943 Jacques Lewiner, (9 August, 1943 - ) is a French physicist and inventor. He is Professor and Honorary Scientific Director of École supérieure de physique et de chimie industrielles de la ville de Paris (ESPCI ParisTech).
His works have been devoted to electrical insulators and particularly electrets, instrumentation and sensors, for instance in medical imaging, or on the improvement of telecommunication networks.
He has filed a large number of patent applications leading to industrial development, either through licenses granted to industrial companies or through start-up companies often created with former students or researchers. He has participated in the creation of various technology oriented start up companies, for instance Inventel, specializing in Telecommunications, Finsécur which develops and markets fire detection systems, Sculpteo which is an online 3D printing platform, Roowin in the field of chemical synthesis and Cynove in embedded electronics devices. Most of these companies have experienced a strong growth. For instance Inventel, which was the French leader for multimedia gateways was bought by Thomson SA in 2005.
Lewiner is laureate of the French Academy of Sciences in 1990, Knight in the National Order of the Legion of Honor, member of the French Academy of Technologies since 2005 and Honorary Fellow of the Technion. *Wik


DEATHS

1932 John Charles Fields died (May 14, 1863 - August 9, 1932). In his will he left funds for an international medal for contributions to mathematics. The International Congress of Mathematicians in Zurich in 1932 adopted the proposal, and the first Fields Medals were awarded at the Oslo Congress in 1936 to Lars Ahlfors, age 29 of Harvard, and Jesse Douglas, age 39 of Massachusetts Institute of Technology. *VFR It became the most prestigious award for mathematicians, often referred to as the equivalent of a Nobel Prize for mathematicians. As a professor at the University of Toronto, he had worked to bring the International Congress of Mathematicians to Toronto (1924). The Congress was so successful that afterward there was a surplus of about\( $2,500\) which Fields, as chairman of the organizing committee, proposed be used to fund two medals to be awarded at each of future Congresses. This was approved on 24 Feb 1931. He died the following year, leaving \($47,000\) as additional funding for the medals, which have been awarded since 1936.*TIS


1969 Cecil Frank Powell (5 December 1903 – 9 August 1969) British physicist and winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1950 for his development of the photographic method of studying nuclear processes and for the resulting discovery of the pion (pi-meson), a heavy subatomic particle. The pion proved to be the hypothetical particle proposed in 1935 by Yukawa Hideki of Japan in his theory.*TIS

1994 Helena Rasiowa (June 20, 1917 – August 9, 1994) worked in algebraic logic and the mathematical foundations of computer science.*SAU

During WWII he gained experience miniaturizing electronics, such as in the proximity fuse of a missile. After the war, he studied cosmic radiation, taking advantage of the unused German stock of V2 rockets launched into the outer regions of the atmosphere, carrying research devices using radio to relay back the data gathered. He was also involved in the early U.S. space program, and he had radiation measuring instruments on the first U.S. satellite, Explorer 1, launched 31 Jan 1958 with follow-up carried out by satellites Explorer 3 and 4 later the same year.*TIS

          Skull Session: Braxton Miller Comfortable As a Receiver, Billy Price Rebounds, and Michael Jordan Takes Snaps at Center      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

This individual was in high school 18 months ago.

ICYMI:

Word of the Day: Obdurate.

 BRAXTON MILLER LOOKING LIKE A RECEIVER. After two seasons playing professionally at the highest level, Braxton Miller may have finally figured out how to play his position.

From HoustonChronicle.com: 

Catching passes in stride on a sun-splashed morning, everything is clicking for Braxton Miller.

His route-running is textbook. His pass-catching fundamentals are on point. And Miller no longer looks out of place or uncomfortable lined up outside the hash marks as a wide receiver.

...

“It wasn’t easy, to be honest with you,” Miller said following a training camp practice. “I dug deep. I learned from the guys around me. Watching DeAndre helped me improve my game a lot.

“I want to be on top of my game. I’m having fun. I feel great. I know what I’m doing. I’m not thinking too much. I’m getting the job done.”

I mean this without even a bit of sarcasm – it's absolutely incredible that Miller was drafted in the third round and has been able to survive in the NFL for two seasons while clearly not knowing how to play the position he's being paid millions of dollars to play. It speaks volumes to how purely athletic he is.

I'll never forget his first game playing receiver in college. I remarked multiple times that he looked lost, wasn't running crisp routes and was a useless blocker – all of which made sense for a guy who's played receiver for like three months.

But then he caught the first pass thrown to him, diving and cradling it under his body, then two quarters later he torched a helpless safety and somehow avoided the tackle and stayed in bounds for a touchdown.

If that's the product of Miller having no idea how to play receiver, it's absolutely worth keeping him on an NFL roster for a few years until he figures it out.

And when he does...

 THE PRICE IS ALRIGHT. It's a tad bit concerning when the nation's top center from last season has a little trouble snapping the ball, as was the case earlier this week during the Bengals' annual mock game when four of Billy Price's snaps ended up on the ground.

The first one was Andy Dalton's fault as the ball just went through his hands, but the other three came on exchanges under center, something Price didn't do a whole lot of at Ohio State.

Price even declined to speak to the media afterwards – which is absolutely shocking if you know much about him.

But whatever the issue was, it seems to have been corrected.

I'm glad we can put that all behind us and Billy can go ahead with his 10-year career as Cincinnati's starting center.

 LOOKING FOR THE BEST FIVE. Speaking of starting centers, Ohio State needs one.

In the spring, it seemed the center battle was a two-man race between fifth-year senior Brady Taylor and redshirt freshman Josh Myers, with Taylor holding a slight edge.

But as we enter fall camp, it seems the Buckeyes might consider once again moving a veteran guard to the middle, in an effort to get the five-best slobs on the field.

From Bill Landis of Cleveland.com:

Michael Jordan took reps at center during the portion of Tuesday's practice that was open to the local media. Big Ten Network was there all day, and we saw some social media postings from them that had Jordan at center on the first-team offensive line during competitive 11-on-11.

That's a surprising development only if you've forgotten the charge of offensive line coach Greg Studrawa and offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson, who seems to have as much influence on the O-line. Step one is finding the best five linemen. That conversation complicates the search for a new center.

As much as I'd love to see Taylor win the job as a redshirt senior, I can't fault the coaching staff's temptation to roll with an interior line of Demetrius Knox, Michael Jordan and Branden Bowen or Malcolm Pridgeon. That just sounds terrifying.

 SWOLE PUNTER SHOULD BE STARTER. A year after the Philadelphia Eagles brought in our favorite swole punter from down under to compete for the starting job, they've brought him back.

But this year, there is literally no competition.

From 247Sports.com:

Johnston has been in a competition with himself for the punter job. So far, he's winning.

"Extremely high," said Eagles head coach Doug Pederson on his confidence with Johnston. "You watch him, he’ll have four or five really good kicks. There will be an occasional one that will go awry just a little bit.

"But that’s all part of his plan, too. Part of his progression with what we’re asking him to do directionally, right, left, try to get him outside the numbers. It’s all new. So, he’s learning that and done a good job."

I've witnessed Cameron Johnston do absolutely unnatural things with a football, dropping it inside the five-yard line repeatedly from like 50 yards away. Assuming his spells work over in Philly, I think he'll be just fine this year.

 TERRELLE PRYOR, ALSO A RECEIVER. Folks, in today's Skull Session, I give you not one, but two former Ohio State quarterbacks trying to make careers as NFL receivers. 

From NewYorkJets.com:

The catch of the day belonged to Terrelle Pryor. Darnold had Pryor one-on-one with Derrick “Bones” Jones, one of the early standouts in camp, and the rookie passer made the smart move of giving the 6’4”, 228-pounder a chance. Pryor palmed the ball at the top of his jump and brought in for a score.

“Pryor, I think he duplicated the catch I made in fourth grade,” said Bowles with a grin. “But it was a heck of a catch.”

I knew Pryor could make a career as an NFL receiver the second I saw him nab a touchdown pass over a helpless Texas defensive back who was in perfect position to make the play.

Deep #sources tell me he also did this to Malcolm Jenkins during bowl practices, and it nearly led to a brawl on the field, which I assume is due to freshman Terrelle Pryor's notorious maturity and humbleness.

          A company that Google acquired in 2008 could be the key to its plans to re-enter China (GOOGL, GOOG)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Google China

  • Google used one of the sites it owns in China to test a censored search engine.
  • The site is 265.com, which Google acquired in 2008.
  • China's government has indicated Google is welcome back as long as it follows the law.

Details continue to trickle out about Google's work on a search engine built specifically to appease the Chinese government, which keeps a tight grip on the flow of information in that country.

To refine the search engine, Google engineers relied on samples of search queries obtained from 265.com, a Chinese-based web directory that Google acquired in 2008, the Intercept reported Wednesday.  

It was the Intercept that broke the news last week, that Google was building a search engine that complied with China's strict ban on certain web sites and search terms. The move would be a reversal of a 2010 decision by the company to pull search operations out of China rather than censor information.

The apparent flip-flop brought heaps of criticism on Google's leadership, from politicians, media pundits, and even some employees. Earlier this year, Google appeared to put some distance between itself and the military when it promised never to use artificial intelligence to build weapons or cause harm.

Many people asked why Google refused to work with the US military but was seeking to help a communist government supress free speech.  One group that wasn't critical of Google's decision was the Chinese government. Chinese state media welcomed Google back to the country, saying things will be fine as long as the company follows the law, according to a story in The Washington Post

Right now, Google.com and some of the companies other services, such as YouTube are not accessible in China, but 265.com is not blocked, the Intercept reported. 

"It appears that Google," the Intercept wrote, "has used 265.com as a de facto honeypot for market research, storing information about Chinese users’ searches before sending them along to Baidu (Google's largest competitor in China)."

Google did not respond to a request for comment at the time of publication.

  • A quick history of early-boot memory allocators

    One might think that memory allocation during system startup should not be difficult: almost all of memory is free, there is no concurrency, and there are no background tasks that will compete for memory. Even so, boot-time memory management is a tricky task. Physical memory is not necessarily contiguous, its extents change from system to system, and the detection of those extents may be not trivial. With NUMA things are even more complex because, in order to satisfy allocation locality, the exact memory topology must be determined. To cope with this, sophisticated mechanisms for memory management are required even during the earliest stages of the boot process.

    One could ask: "so why not use the same allocator that Linux uses normally from the very beginning?" The problem is that the primary Linux page allocator is a complex beast and it, too, needs to allocate memory to initialize itself. Moreover, the page-allocator data structures should be allocated in a NUMA-aware way. So another solution is required to get to the point where the memory-management subsystem can become fully operational.

    In the early days, Linux didn't have an early memory allocator; in the 1.0 kernel, memory initialization was not as robust and versatile as it is today. Every subsystem initialization call, or simply any function called from start_kernel(), had access to the starting address of the single block of free memory via the global memory_start variable. If a function needed to allocate memory it just increased memory_start by the desired amount. By the time v2.0 was released, Linux was already ported to five more architectures, but boot-time memory management remained as simple as in v1.0, with the only difference being that the extents of the physical memory were detected by the architecture-specific code. It should be noted, though, that hardware in those days was much simpler and memory configurations could be detected more easily.

  • Teaching the OOM killer about control groups

    The kernel's out-of-memory (OOM) killer is summoned when the system runs short of free memory and is unable to proceed without killing one or more processes. As might be expected, the policy decisions around which processes should be targeted have engendered controversy for as long as the OOM killer has existed. The 4.19 development cycle is likely to include a new OOM-killer implementation that targets control groups rather than individual processes, but it turns out that there is significant disagreement over how the OOM killer and control groups should interact.

    To simplify a bit: when the OOM killer is invoked, it tries to pick the process whose demise will free the most memory while causing the least misery for users of the system. The heuristics used to make this selection have varied considerably over time — it was once remarked that each developer who changes the heuristics makes them work for their use case while ruining things for everybody else. In current kernels, the heuristics implemented in oom_badness() are relatively simple: sum up the amount of memory used by a process, then scale it by the process's oom_score_adj value. That value, found in the process's /proc directory, can be tweaked by system administrators to make specific processes more or less attractive as an OOM-killer target.

    No OOM-killer implementation is perfect, and this one is no exception. One problem is that it does not pay attention to how much memory a particular user has allocated; it only looks at specific processes. If user A has a single large process while user B has 100 smaller ones, the OOM killer will invariably target A's process, even if B is using far more memory overall. That behavior is tolerable on a single-user system, but it is less than optimal on a large system running containers on behalf of multiple users.

          Huawei nova 3i      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Just received:

Huawei New Zealand Consumer Business group is bringing the HUAWEI nova 3i to New Zealand consumers - the third generation in the nova i series smartphones.

The nova 3i offers high-end smartphone features, including 128GB storage, 6.3-inch FullView display, four cameras (two rear-facing and two front-facing) with Artificial Intelligence (AI), te reo Māori as an operating language, and a Kirin 710 next-gen AI processor. The nova 3i delivers high-end functionality at a fraction of the cost of flagship devices.

Colour has become smartphone manufacturers' obsession, largely owing to the demand for interesting and fashionable colour choices in smartphones from consumers. Huawei have set a new standard in smartphone colour with the Iris Puuple blue-purple gradient colour scheme available on the HUAWEI nova 3i.

The back of the HUAWEI nova 3i is equipped with a nano-level texture film that is etched with a semi-circular pattern. This process creates soft and gradient colours, alternating between hues of blue and purple. The back glass and metal mid-frame are seamlessly connected for a better handling experience and overall thinner visual effect.

Recognising the importance of photography for consumers, Huawei have equipped the nova 3i with four AI cameras - two on the front and two on the back - to put a premium, intelligent photography experience into the hands of its customers. The dual front cameras produce natural selfies, whereas the dual-camera system at the back produces vivid photos with clear subjects, allowing users to share stunning social media ready photos with friends and followers anytime anywhere.

The HUAWEI nova 3i has dual cameras of 24MP+2MP. This hardware is further amplified with AI, opening up photo opportunities never before possible for users. The dual cameras can adjust beautification levels and brightness for portraits and backgrounds.

The HUAWEI nova 3i AI-powered intelligent system has studied more than 100 million images and can recognise over 500 scenarios in 22 categories. The smartphone automatically identifies different scenes and makes adjustments accordingly, providing users with the best possible results as well as an intelligent shooting experience.

AI also allows the device to recognise six different backgrounds, including blue skies, green plants and beaches. The AI-enabled camera can optimise photos by scene, making the sky bluer, the grass greener and the sand on the beach more granular. Users no longer need to spend hours editing their photos - the HUAWEI nova 3i can immediately turn the pictures and videos into masterpieces.

The HUAWEI nova 3i is equipped with the Android Oreo-based EMUI 8.2, integrating AI support, including:

AI shopping assistant: A two-finger long press on a photo will identify products and the links to purchase for those products will then be retrieved by the AI search function.

AI Translation: The nova 3i is configured with a built-in voice translator that supports translation between nine different languages. The device can also scan images, such as maps and posters, to translate to seven languages including Chinese, English, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, French and Russian.

AI-powered Smart Gallery: The gallery can automatically identify eight different photo themes, including birthdays, parties, graduations, nights out, sporting events, weddings, travels and more. The gallery automatically classifies your photos into these themes.

AI-enhance communications: When in a noisy environment, the HUAWEI nova 3i will turn on its AI noise removal mode, which includes whispered and high-volume modes. When the whispered mode is on, the speaker's voice can be heard clearly without needing to increase the volume. Through rounds of testing on three high-speed railways in China, Germany and Japan, the nova 3i has enhanced capabilities to make and receive calls without issue. Even in an elevator, calls will remain smooth and crystal clear.

The HUAWEI nova 3i is available from August 16th, 2018 from selected retailers nationwide, in both black and iris purple with a suggested price of NZ$ 499.00

          Intel eyes $200 bn data centre market opportunity by 2022      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

San Francisco: With more and more data being generated, global chip-maker Intel is eyeing at $200 billion market opportunity in 2022 for its data-centric businesses, a top executive has said.

According to Navin Shenoy, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Data Centre Group (DCG) at Intel Corp, the company garnered $1 billion in Artificial Intelligence (AI) revenue from Intel Xeon Processors in 2017.

"I find it astounding that 90 per cent of the world's data was generated in the past two years. Analysts forecast that by 2025, data will exponentially grow by 10 times and reach 163 zettabytes," Shenoy said during his keynote at the company's Data-Centric Innovation Summit at its headquarters in Santa Clara, California, on Tuesday.

The company introduced the first Intel Xeon processor 20 years ago.

"Since launching the Intel Xeon Scalable platform last July, we've seen demand continue to rise. We have shipped more than 2 million units in 2018's second quarter. Even better, in the first four weeks of the third quarter, we've shipped another 1 million units," said Shenoy.

In 2017, more than $1 billion in revenue came from customers running AI on Intel Xeon processors in the data centre.

"We continue to improve AI training and inference performance. In total, since 2014, our performance has improved well over 200 times," said Shenoy.

The company announced that Intel Optane DC persistent memory-based systems can achieve up to eight times the performance gains for certain analytics queries over configurations that rely only on DRAM memory.

"We are further expanding our connectivity portfolio with a new and innovative 'SmartNIC' product line -- code-named Cascade Glacier -- which is based on Intel Arria 10 FPGAs and enables optimized performance for Intel Xeon processor-based systems," Shenoy said.

According to him, the proliferation of the Cloud beyond hyperscale and into the network and out to the edge, the impending transition to 5G, and the growth of AI and analytics have driven a profound shift in the market.

"We need to look at data holistically, including how we move data faster, store more of it and process everything from the Cloud to the edge," Shenoy added.

Samsung to invest 160b USD, hire 40,000 for next 3 years

DF-Xinhua Report

Samsung Group, South Korea's biggest family-controlled conglomerate, said Wednesday that it will invest 180 trillion won (160 billion U.S. dollars) and hire 40,000 more employees for the next three years.

   Samsung made the announcement to help revitalize the South Korean economy and foster new growth engines.

   The government under South Korean President Moon Jae-in placed its top priority on job creation, especially among youths, unveiling supplementary budget to create decent jobs.

   However, it had yet to take effect as the labor market was in the doldrums on soft corporate investment and weak private consumption.

   Samsung expected to create 40,000 new jobs, including generating up to 20,000 additional new jobs on top of the previous hiring plans, over the next three years. It reflected Samsung's commitment to support youth employment, Samsung said in a statement.

   Along with the direct employment of Samsung, its investment in South Korea was forecast to help induce around 700,000 jobs in related industries and businesses, the statement noted.

   Among the total of 180 trillion won (160 billion U.S. dollars) in investment, 130 trillion won (116 billion U.S. dollars) will be spent in South Korea

   Samsung said that it will invest 25 trillion won (22 billion U.S. dollars) in innovative business areas such as artificial intelligence (AI), 5G, automotive electronics components and biopharmaceuticals over the next three years.

   Innovations, powered by AI technology, was forecast to drive the industry's transformation. The next-generation 5G telecommunications technology was expected to create opportunities in autonomous driving, the Internet of Things (IoT) and robotics, Samsung said.

   Samsung planned to significantly expand its research capability for AI technology, raising the number of advanced AI researchers to 1,000 across its global AI centers. It will also aggressively invest in 5G chipsets and related devices and equipment.

   Samsung aimed to become a leader in electronics components for future cars such as system-on-chips for driverless driving, making use of its leadership in semiconductors, telecommunications and display technologies.

   Separately, Samsung said it will increase support for basic sciences to identify new growth opportunities, widening its program to include areas of future technologies such as AI, 5G, IoT and biopharmaceuticals.

   Additional investment will be made in semiconductors and display panels, Samsung said.

   For semiconductors, Samsung planned to expand investment in its manufacturing factories to maintain technology leadership and meet new demand from applications in AI, 5G, data centers and automotive electronics.

   The spending will include investments in non-memory chips and new advanced manufacturing equipment as well as memory products.

   For display panels, investment will be increased to develop high-value, differentiated products amid stiff competition in the industry.

   In conjunction with the South Korean government, Samsung will set up and operate software education centers to nurture software talent and help create new job opportunities.

   The centers will train 10,000 students and job candidates across the nation, offering employment consulting services for the next five years.

   It will also increase the scale of its so-called "Smart Factory" program, an initiative that provides automation solutions and intelligent upgrades for manufacturing facilities of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Ethical AI - Gary Kasparov

One of the machine learning mistakes was the tragic death of Elaine Herzberg in Tempe, Arizona by UBER’s self-driving car. Initially there was a focus on the fact that machine learning made an error, but in fact, the answer was even more unsatisfying: the algorithm did detect the pedestrian but the car was programed to be less sensitive to potential false positives, causing the image and detection of the pedestrian to be ignored.

As people become more aware of the number of decisions driven by artificial intelligence, some have raised a call for so-called “ethical AI.” AI is not ethical, but our use of it and tuning definitely is. At FICO World 2018, I sat down with Chess Grandmaster Garry Kasparov to discuss the hot topics in the world of AI, and asked: What do you think of ethical AI?

Watch the video below, and for more of my conversation with Garry Kasparov on AI go to www.fico.com/ai-analytics, where you can see other excerpts as well as our full discussion.

          Is China Out-Innovating America?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Whenever we denounce Chinese culture and educational methods for producing generations of mindless automatons, we point to America's superior technological innovation. We believe that our more free wheeling, creative, individualistic culture will out-innovate any other culture on earth. And that Chinese automatons will never be able to compete.


Now, the president of MIT, Rafael Reif offers us a sobering assessment of the innovation derby. As it happens, America seems to be falling behind China.


I cannot claim anything resembling competence in assessing these issues, so I will report Reif’s observation and analysis:


China is not an innovation also-ran that prospers mainly by copying other people’s ideas and producing them quickly at low cost. The country is advancing aggressively to assert technological supremacy in critical fields of science and technology.
In quantum computing, China’s Alibaba is battling Google to achieve the technical milestone of “quantum supremacy.” In 5G technology, the three largest global players are Nokia of Finland, Ericsson of Sweden — and Huawei of China, which is spending more than two and a half times as much on research and development as its two rivals. The Fuxing bullet train, designed and built in China, is the world’s fastest in regular operation.


China is also a world leader in fields like mobile payment and facial and spoken language recognition, where Chinese companies have made the most of their advanced algorithms and their advantages in scale and data access. It is also making bold national investments in key areas of research like biotechnology and space, and directly supporting start-ups and recruiting talent from around the world. And China has unrivaled capacity to rapidly ramp up large-scale production of advanced technology products and quickly bring innovation to market.


The United States still has an opportunity to catch up here. It’s strength,the president of MIT tells us, lies in its university system. We have more intellectual freedom than China, and therefore, the argument goes, we should be producing more innovators:

But China’s technological dominance is not inevitable. The United States has tremendous assets, including the immense global strength of our technology sector. This partly depends on a unique formula no other country has been able to copy: the large number of first-rate American universities pursuing advanced research with long-term federal support. This relationship is rooted in a national culture of opportunity and entrepreneurship, inspired by an atmosphere of intellectual freedom, supported by the rule of law and, crucially, pushed to new creative heights by uniting brilliant talent from every sector of our society and every corner of the world. For decades, these factors have helped make our nation the most powerful scientific and technological engine on Earth.


America has notably attracted talent from all over the world. But, as you and I know and as the president of MIT does not mention, that talent most often comes from Asia. Ph. D. programs in science and engineering are dominated by Asian students. They even outperform white American students.


Unfortunately, after they receive their degrees, these students are increasingly returning to their home countries.


Reif is surely correct to recommend a national strategy, directed by government and corporations:


While China is moving forward rapidly with a unified strategy called Made in China 2025 to become the world leader in manufacturing and technology, the United States has not made technological pre-eminence a matter of broad national focus.


But, ask  yourself this, how well will this university system work if it sets the goal of diversity ahead of the goal of technological superiority? Which matters more, diversity or excellence? As the student body becomes more diverse, will coursework need to be dumbed down?

And also, consider the fact that the radical leftists who work at Google have forced the company to withdraw from an artificial intelligence contract with the Pentagon. Googlers do not want to sully their hands working on drone technology.


If American corporations are going to limit their research to areas where they can assert ideological purity we are going to continue to fall behind China. After all, artificial intelligence has many applications. If you shut down research because it applies to America’s national defense, you are going to miss out on other technological advances. Besides, wasn’t the internet, that mammoth engine of marketing and sales, developed by the very same Pentagon?

          Zicom Electronic Security Systems partners INOX, Carnival Cinemas for Street Smart      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

MUMBAI: One of India’s leading electronic security companies  Zicom Electronic Security Systems Ltd had recently partnered with INOX and Carnival Cinemas across metro cities - New Delhi, Mumbai, Gandhinagar, Faridabad, Gurgaon, Bangalore, Kalyan, Navi Mumbai, Pune, Thane, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Gaziabad and Noida for a brand engagement activity for its recently launched vehicle passenger safety solution, Street Smart.

Street Smart, through the power of artificial intelligence and bot technology, caters to the safety concerns of the discerning road traveller.

Speaking about this activity, Zicom Electronic Security Systems Ltd manager marketing Forum Shah said, “Street travel has become the norm of the day today. Yet while most of us travel by road for work or leisure, not many of us are prepared for unfortunate situations that could arise. At Zicom Electronic Systems we believe that “Prevention is best”

"Since we launched Street Smart, early this year, we have been confident about the value in terms of safety & security that our product will be able to offer travelers on the road. We are hopeful that our recent on-ground activation will help us to develop a better connect with our audience,” he added.

At the movie screening, before the film begins and after the lights go out, there will be an audio announcement stating that a black sedan has been wrongly parked. The act will seem genuine to get the attention of the audience. This will be followed by the commentator highlighting how Street Smart can help a consumer against such inconvenient events.

          China’s Aggressive Surveillance Technology Will Spread Beyond Its Borders      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Chinese government has wholeheartedly embraced surveillance technology to exercise control over its citizenry in ways both big and small. It’s facial-scanning passers-by to arrest criminals at train stations, gas pumps, and sports stadiums and broadcasting the names of individual jaywalkers. Government-maintained social credit scores affect Chinese citizens’ rights and privileges if they associate with dissidents. In Tibet and Xinjiang, the government is using facial recognition and big data to surveil the physical movements of ethnic minorities, individually and collectively, to predict and police demonstrations before they even start. China is even using facial recognition to prevent the overuse of toilet paper in some public bathrooms.

We may soon see dictators in other countries use these sorts of tools, too. If American cities and states are laboratories of democracy, China’s remote provinces have become laboratories of authoritarianism. China is now exporting internationally a suite of surveillance, facial recognition, and data tools that together equip governments to repress citizens on a scale and with a ruthless algorithmic effectiveness that previous generations of strongmen could only dream of. Call it algorithmic authoritarianism. Where yesterday’s strongmen were constrained by individual informants and case-by-case sleuthing, tomorrow’s authoritarians will, like China, be able to remotely identify thousands of specific individuals in public via cameras, constantly track them, and use unprecedented artificial intelligence and computing to crunch surveillance information and feed it back into the field in real time. This technology is still being imperfectly and inconsistently applied, but China is working to close the gaps. And even the perception of surveillance where it doesn’t exist has been shown to shape behavior.

The limits of China’s willingness to use these tools at home or export them to others are unknown. Worse still, China’s digital authoritarianism could emerge as an exportable model, appealing to leaders on the fence about democratic norms, that could undercut or even rival liberal democracy.

Part of what makes technologically enabled authoritarianism so complex is that the tools also have immense promise to serve customers and citizens well. They’re double-edged swords. Consider the surreal case of the California-based suspected serial killer apprehended after his relative voluntarily submitted DNA to an online ancestry database that matched material at the crime scene—or the accused Maryland newsroom shooter quickly identified by facial recognition. Or the lower-caste Indians who can now receive government benefits thanks to India’s national ID Aadhaar program, which relies on a database that has collected the iris scans and fingerprints of more than 1 billion Indians in a country where hundreds of millions previously lacked state identity cards. Or the Londoners kept safe by massive numbers of CCTV cameras. Or the predictive policing pilot launched in New Orleans with the pro-bono help of Palantir. Even in democracies with meaningful legal checks on state power, leveraging A.I. for policing often suffers from a lack of transparency, citizen input, and a serious risk of biased enforcement and overreach.

China and a few small, advanced, authoritarian states such as Singapore (which is soliciting Chinese bids to install 110,000 advanced facial recognition sensors on the small city-state’s lampposts) and the United Arab Emirates are at the forefront of the application of these technologies. But as China embarks on a trillion-dollar global infrastructure construction binge known as the Belt and Road Initiative, it is already exporting its own tech-enabled authoritarian toolkit to gain profit or goodwill with local authorities, or simply to extend the reach of its own surveillance.

What happens when these technologies migrate to bigger, more fractious societies? This won’t happen overnight—and the financial and logistical obstacles to broad implementation are significant. But there is every reason to think that in a decade or two, if not sooner, authoritarians and would-be strongmen in places like Turkey, Hungary, Egypt, or Rwanda will seek these tools and use them to thwart civil society and crush dissent in ways that weaken democracy globally.

Already there are reports that Zimbabwe, for example, is turning to Chinese firms to implement nationwide facial-recognition and surveillance programs, wrapped into China’s infrastructure investments and a larger set of security agreements as well, including for policing online communication. The acquisition of black African faces will help China’s tech sector improve its overall data set.

Malaysia, too, announced new partnerships this spring with China to equip police with wearable facial-recognition cameras. There are quiet reports of Arab Gulf countries turning to China not just for the drone technologies America has denied but also for the authoritarian suite of surveillance, recognition, and data tools perfected in China’s provinces. In a recent article on Egypt’s military-led efforts to build a new capital city beyond Cairo’s chaos and revolutionary squares, a retired general acting as project spokesman declared, “a smart city means a safe city, with cameras and sensors everywhere. There will be a command center to control the entire city.” Who is financing construction? China.

While many governments are making attempts to secure this information, there have been several alarming stories of data leaks. Moreover, these national identifiers create an unprecedented opportunity for state surveillance at scale. What about collecting biometric information in nondemocratic regimes? In 2016, the personal details of nearly 50 million people in Turkey were leaked.

Now is the time for those invested in individual freedom—in government, in civil society, and in the tech sector—to be thinking about the challenges ahead.

This starts with basic transparency and awareness at home, in international fora, and ultimately inside nations deciding how and whether to adopt the tools of algorithmic authoritarianism. Diplomats, CEOs, activists, and others will need to use their various bully pulpits to reach members of the public. Oversight bodies like the U.S. Congress and European Parliament should convene hearings to hold tech companies and government agencies accountable for their role in exporting elements of the authoritarian toolkit in search of profits or market share. Forging reasonable, balanced approaches to these new technologies at home will be a crucial aspect of pushing other states to do the same. As a recent blog post from Microsoft’s President Brad Smith essentially calling for intensive study and regulation of this space makes clear, now is the time to bridge the tech-policy divide to find feasible, ethical solutions.

Reaching beyond established democracies to set international norms and standards will be difficult, but it is essential to try. An international body, be it the European Union or United Nations, will need to put forward a set of best practices for protecting individual rights in an era of facial recognition. Companies and countries alike can group together to commit to protecting citizens by placing limits on facial recognition, offering the right in some instances to opt out of sharing biologically identifiable information, as Indians fought for and won, or protecting identifying data on the back end.

China and other determined authoritarian states may prove undeterrable in their zeal to adopt repressive technologies. A more realistic goal, as Georgetown University scholar Nicholas Wright has argued, is to sway countries on the fence by pointing out the reputational costs of repression and supporting those who are advocating for civil liberties in this domain within their own countries. Democracy promoters (which we hope will one day again include the White House) will also want to recognize the coming changes to the authoritarian public sphere. They can start now in helping vulnerable populations and civil society to gain greater technological literacy to advocate for their rights in new domains. It is not too early for governments and civil society groups alike to study what technological and tactical countermeasures exist to circumvent and disrupt new authoritarian tools.

Everyone will have to approach these developments with the humbling recognition that Silicon Valley is not the only game in town. Regardless of what happens stateside or in Europe, China will have formidable and growing indigenous capabilities to export to the rest of the world.

Seven years ago, techno-optimists expressed hope that a wave of new digital tools for social networking and self-expression could help young people in the Middle East and elsewhere to find their voices. Today, a new wave of Chinese-led technological advances threatens to blossom into what we consider an “Arab spring in reverse”—in which the next digital wave shifts the pendulum back, enabling state domination and repression at a staggering scale and algorithmic effectiveness.

Americans are absolutely right to be urgently focused on countering Russian weaponized hacking and leaking as its primary beneficiary sits in the Oval Office. But we also need to be more proactive in countering the tools of algorithmic authoritarianism that will shape the worldwide future of individual freedom.

The race to teach students skills is heating up, with three companies this week introducing digital learning initiatives.

Educational specialist company I-Innovate introduced the " and Robotics for the Future" programme at the Diepsloot Combined School.

Sponsored by IT service provider Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) SA, the programme helps learners and educators explore advanced (AI) technologies such as automation, machine learning, pattern recognition and neural networks through a series of hands-on innovation sessions, says I-Innovate.

Grade nine students from the school will learn how to create and use AI to problem-solve and innovate in their own lives and communities. TCS employees will mentor learner-led teams throughout the experience, both in-person and online.

"[The programme] connects learning in the classroom to real-world opportunities and career pathways. It is an inspiring and highly relevant way to show children that they can make giant leaps in learning and be a real part of the solutions to some of our most pressing local and global challenges," says I-Innovate CEO Trisha Crookes.

Learners will be introduced to coding and robotics, and will discover how to use these technologies for creative problem-solving, she notes...

Coding for innovation Meanwhile, Qberty has opened the Coders and Innovators Hub, at Northriding and Northlands Corner Shopping Centre in Randburg.

The centre will be open to children of all ages; however, the main target market is public schools, says Qberty. The company hopes to bridge the digital gap between private and public schools, and offer students an equal chance of digital experiential learning, it says.

Children will learn how to code, create apps and Web sites, and build robotics, notes Qberty, but highlights its main focus is Minecraft in education.

  • Samsung announced its first smart speaker, called the "Galaxy Home," during its event in Brooklyn, New York on Thursday.
  • The Galaxy Home will be powered by Samsung's own AI voice assistant called Bixby for voice commands.
  • More details will be announced in November during Samsung's Developer Conference.

Samsung announced its new smart speaker called the Galaxy Home during its event in Brooklyn, NY on Thursday. 

The "smart" part comes from Samsung's own Bixby artificial intelligence (AI) voice assistant. Much like Amazon's Alexa, Google's Assistant, and Apple's Siri, you can ask Bixby questions and have it perform certain tasks with your voice.

So far, Samsung's Bixby hasn't received the most positive reviews when compared to competition. Samsung announced several new improvements to Bixby during its event on Thursday, but it feels like the company is playing catch-up with Google, Amazon, and even Apple's Siri.

The Galaxy Home will also be a smart device hub, so you'll be able to control smart-home devices with your voice. For example, you can control doors fitted with smart locks, or turn on smart light bulbs. 

As a speaker, the Galaxy Home will deliver 360-degree sound, but you can ask Bixby to direct sound towards you rather than spreading it around a room. It also houses a subwoofer for bass.

Design-wise, it seemingly sports a fabric exterior in a somewhat similar shape as Apple's HomePod. The major difference is the tripod stand. From the photos during Samsung's event, it looks like it could be a fairly large device.

Location: I've been in the U.S. for almost 4 years, but I'm originally from the U.K. I spent the first 3 years in New York, based out of ustwo's office in the Financial District. Last May, I relocated to LA to be closer to our clients.

When did you decide that you wanted to be a designer?

I came to design, as a career, kind of by accident. After leaving high school, I started my own street wear label/company. I worked with graffiti artists and illustrators from my local town, designing and manufacturing t-shirts and hoodies. Over time, our roster of creatives included people from all over the world and the brand grew into a small community.

Later on, I met a guy who owned two or three contemporary art galleries North of England. He asked me to curate a show for one of his locations, so we brought a bunch of artists in from Europe and around the U.K. and put on a month long exhibition of their work. We almost sold out, and after that, I came on full time as gallery manager—I spent 2 years organizing shows and developing print releases with artists.

When the recession hit, art sales started to decline and we decided to close the gallery. Beyond art, the only other skill I had was a basic understanding of Photoshop, so I ended up taking a few freelance gigs designing logos and websites for local businesses. It was around that time I became interested in web development, so I started reading books and taking online classes on HTML and PHP. Things developed from there, and I started work at my first start-up in 2008 as a UI Designer and Front-End Engineer. 

What was your first job in media and entertainment design?

My first experience working in media and entertainment was at a small design and development agency in London. The majority of their clients are in the video content space and include a handful of the major U.K. broadcasters. The agency specializes in developing consumer facing, video-on-demand platforms and content management systems, so I got a fairly in-depth look at the industry—including its challenges. Some of these broadcasters are 60-70 years old and their audience numbers are in the millions. I'd always had a bit of an obsession with TV growing up, so getting to work on products of that scale with brands I actually loved was awesome. Working at that agency was definitely a career highlight.

What projects are you most proud of from your time at ustwo so far? 

One of my first projects at ustwo was with Comcast on a new video-streaming product called Watchable. They had an existing library of short-form content and asked us to help create a product that would serve to audiences in a unique way. The challenge was to get casual, short-form consumers to watch more.

Comcast Watchable

We designed the service around an editorial model, basically playlists of video content that were grouped by a theme or an event. The playlists would contain video from popular producers like Screen Junkies or Red Bull and were mixed with lesser-known creators as a way of introducing users to new content based on stuff they like. Rather than follow the YouTube or Facebook trend, we went in a completely different direction with the UI and UX. We wanted to design something that would stand out in a crowded market but would still deliver a good experience.

What are some current projects you're working on at ustwo that you're most excited about?

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality have been a big focus for ustwo over the past two years, and a lot of our clients in the media and entertainment space are really keen to explore the potential there. As a designer, I'm always excited about new technologies and how they can be applied to solve problems. To go from designing 2D experiences to 3D experiences and overcoming all the challenges that exist with hardware and software is keeping me on my toes.

What is the best part of your job?

The best part is definitely the variety. When I freelanced, I spent as much time taking care of the "business" as I did designing. No two days were the same. Since then, I've always looked for jobs that could give me that same freedom, hence why I was drawn to ustwo.

What is the most important quality of someone who works in your field?

I really like people who have had significant experience outside of the 'industry.' Some of the best designers I've worked with have had entirely different careers or studied something unrelated and decided to pivot to design and product. For me, those people always have the most interesting perspectives and their approach to problem solving is different than those who may have come from design school or had more formal training.

What is your favorite productivity tip or trick?

For some reason, to-do lists never really worked for me until recently. Last year, a friend introduced me to Things—a productive app on iOS and Mac that's actually been around for a while. It's fairly simple and doesn't have any bells or whistles, but when you find a process that works for you, it's a game changer! I use it for my daily tasks, as well as a CRM to remind me to reach out to people or follow up on something.

ustwo's office in NYC

I also love early mornings. I wake up around 5:30am most mornings, even on weekends, and use that time to get my focus work (like writing and reading) done, or go for a walk. If you work from home, a morning walk is like an energy power-up for the day. I've seen a significant increase in my focus since I started doing it more regularly.

How do you procrastinate?

I'm more of a "procrastiworker" than a procrastinator—I really enjoy my work and honestly find it hard to switch off. I'm always trying to learn something new and can't remember a time in the last 14 years when I didn't have some kind of ongoing side project. So outside of my 9-to-5, that keeps me fairly busy.

I watch a lot of YouTube and Twitch. Most of the time I'll have it on in the background, but if I get distracted I go into a hole. I love finding those videos from the deepest, darkest corners of YouTube. I discovered IRL streaming about four to five months ago, and it's been my latest obsession. There's a big community of people who stream their everyday lives—going for breakfast, buying groceries and hanging out with friends. It seems really boring but it's honestly some of the most compelling content on Twitch.

What is the most widespread misunderstanding about your job?

It's a cliché, but the most widespread misunderstanding about designers in general is that their only job is to make things that look nice. That attitude is definitely changing, and over the past ten years, design has really earned a seat at the table. For some designers, however, it can be hard to break out of that box. I speak to a lot of designers coming to the end of their junior years, and they don't see a clear career path for themselves.

Do yo have any advice for young designers?

Talent is just one part of the puzzle. You need to work hard and diversify your skill set. I've seen a lot of designers in my career who obviously had natural talent but weren't willing to put the hours in. It's a really competitive market right now, and there are a lot of amazing designers looking for employment. A work-life balance is important, but so is self-discipline. A solid work ethic and those things will show in your work and give you a competitive advantage.

Also, always look for ways to diversify your skill set. The material taught in schools and colleges are already four or five years out of date by the time most young designers graduate. For example, no one could have predicted the impact that augmented reality, virtual reality, machine learning and artificial intelligence would have on the industry. You need to constantly look ahead to see what's coming over the horizon—keep yourself and your skills relevant for the market.

          Snapdragon 670 impulsionará recursos de IA em dispositivos intermediários      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A Qualcomm anunciou nesta quarta-feira (8) o SoC Snapdragon 670, o mais novo integrante da série 600, linha chips voltados para aparelhos intermediários.

De acordo com os detalhes divulgados, o novo chip, fabricado a partir do processo de confecção de 10 nanômetros, oferece oito núcleos Kryo 360, sendo que seis deles contam clock de 1.7GHz, e os outros dois restantes oferecendo 2.0GHz de clock base.

Com tanta potência de processamento em seu arsenal, o chip funcionará com a Artificial Intelligence Engine, desenvolvida pela Qualcomm, que auxiliará os dispositivos em funções específicas que envolvam o uso de inteligência articial.

Promentendo o "dobro de desempenho" em relação ao modelo antecessor Snapdragon 660, o novo SoC também conta com a GPU Adreno 615, que, conforme a empresa garante, oferecerá a capacidade de processamento gráfico superior em games e a reprodução de vídeos em 4K a 30 quadros por segundo.

Adaptando-se à tendência crescente dos dispositivos mid-range com sistema de câmera dupla, a Qualcomm fez questão de salientar que o Snapdragon 670 será capaz de suportar configurações de lente única de no máximo 25 MP ou sensor duplo de até 16MP, tudo isso graças ao processador de imagens integrado Spectra 250.

Outro upgrade significativo deste novo chip está em sua eficiência energética, oferecendo compatibilidade com o sistema QuickCharge4 +, garantindo níveis de cargas de 0% a 50% em apenas 15 minutos, além de contar com melhorias gerais no gerenciamento de bateria para ampliar a autonomia de aparelhos móveis em até 30% em relação ao modelo anterior da empresa.

Conforme observou o PhoneArena, as configurações do Snapdragon 670 compartilha de muitas semelhanças com o Snapdragon 710, direcionado comumente a dispositivos intermediários premium, o que deve possibilitar que as fabricantes de smartphones consigam melhorar ainda mais o desempenho de dispositivos sem elevar muito o preço.

          Robots Are Trying To Pick Strawberries. So Far, They're Not Very Good At It      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Robots have taken over many of America's factories. They can explore the depths of the ocean, and other planets. They can play ping-pong. But can they pick a strawberry? "You kind of learn, when you get into this — it's really hard to match what humans can do," says Bob Pitzer, an expert on robots and co-founder of a company called Harvest CROO Robotics . (CROO is an acronym. It stands for Computerized Robotic Optimized Obtainer.) Any 4-year old can pick a strawberry, but machines, for all their artificial intelligence, can't seem to figure it out. Pitzer says the hardest thing for them is just finding the fruit. The berries hide behind leaves in unpredictable places. "You know, I used to work in the semiconductor industry. I was a development engineer for Intel, and it was a lot easier to make semiconductor chips," he says with a laugh. Pitzer's strawberry-picking robot is about to meet its latest test. It's rolling, ever so slowly, into a strawberry field near Duette, Fla. This

A new application of artificial intelligence could help researchers solve medical mysteries ranging from cancer to Alzheimer's. It's a 3D model of a living human cell that lets scientists study the interior structures of a cell even when they can only see the exterior and the nucleus — the largest structure in a cell. The model was unveiled to the public Wednesday by the Allen Institute for Cell Science in Seattle. The technology is freely available, and Roger Brent , an investigator at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle who was not involved in the tool's development, has been using it for several months. He's a big fan. "This lets you see things with a simple microscope that are going to be helpful to researchers all over the world — including in less affluent places," Brent says. "This is incredibly cool," says Greg Johnson , one of the scientists at the Allen Institute who helped create the cell model. By giving scientists a relatively easy and inexpensive way to

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning are now mainstream business tools. They are being applied across many industries to increase profits, reduce costs, save lives and improve customer experiences. Organizations which understand these tools and know how to use them are benefiting at the expense of their rivals. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Business cuts through the hype and technical jargon that is often associated with these subjects. It delivers a simple and concise introduction for managers and business people. The focus is very much on practical application and how to work with technical specialists (data scientists) to maximize the benefits of these technologies.

Name: Lee Simpson

Occupation: My current role is Head of Media & Entertainment Products at ustwo, but I'm wearing many hats right now. Predominately, I'm a design lead and product strategist, which means I work closely with our clients in the media and entertainment space to bring new products and digital experiences to market.

Recently, I've been more involved in business development, developing relationships with new and existing clients and identifying strategic growth opportunities for ustwo. I'm also involved in setting the strategic direction for that work globally, basically defining ustwo's proposition, products and services and making sure ustwo (and our clients) are ahead of the curve.

AMERICAN companies spent $91bn on staff training last year, almost a third as much again as they did in 2016. That equated to more than $1,000 for every staff member being taught, according to a survey by Training magazine.

This shift is highly encouraging. In broad terms, provision of on-the-job training has been shrinking—in both America and Britain it has fallen by roughly half in the past two decades. Companies are often loth to provide it. A 2009 study from the OECD, a club of mostly rich countries, worried that “industry, left to its own devices, may not have incentives to provide sufficient training.” That is because workers may take advantage of their education to transfer their skills to a rival.

Training is even more important in a world of rapid technological change, where low-skilled tasks are increasingly being automated and artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming many services jobs. To have a chance of a long, high-paying...

          Privacy? What Privacy?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Photo by Andrew Worley on Unsplash.


A Calgary shopping centre has been using facial recognition software without letting patrons know.

Peek-a-boo!
They see you!
Friday morning, Jill Clayton, Alberta’s information and privacy commission, announced that she is opening an investigation into reports that two Calgary shopping malls were using facial recognition software to observe customers.
The facial recognition technology was embedded in map kiosks. When people looked at the screen, the screen looked back at them.
Customers received no notice that their faces were being scanned.
The public only learned they were being scanned when a visitor noticed strange computer code popping up on the ad screen at Chinook Centre, took a picture and posted it to Reddit.
(Pause here, if you would, to reflect upon the irony of a secret observation program being observed by someone, who then outed it on social media. Insert your favourite reference to The Matrix, The Truman Show, Minority Report, Person of Interest, or Jeremy Bentham’s panopticon, as you see fit. Millennial media consumers may prefer a nod to Mr. Robot or Black Mirror.)
Mall owner Cadillac Fairview has insisted that there was nothing sinister about its little game of I-spy. The company says it was only using the software to get a sense of the age and gender of people who stopped at the kiosk. It says it wasn’t tracking individual people or storing information, so it wasn’t violating any privacy rules.
But if a mall wanted to know the rough age and gender of its visitors, it could hire a few university students with clipboards to walk around the mall, ticking boxes. It wouldn’t need something as high-tech and expensive as facial recognition software for such a simple task. No wonder some people questioned whether the company had another long-term plan for the system it was secretly piloting in Calgary.
Still, whatever Cadillac Fairview was or wasn’t doing with the data, the information and privacy commissioner is sufficiently concerned that it was acting without the permission of customers.
Scott Sibbald speaks for the commission. Under PIPA, the province’s Personal Information Protection Act, he says businesses can only collect personal information from customers with the meaningful, informed consent of their customers. When they received a complaint from someone about the Calgary cameras, Clayton opened the investigation on her own initiative.
Friday afternoon, Canada’s federal privacy commission announced a separate investigation because Cadillac Fairview, which owns the Calgary malls, owns other malls across Canada.

It took another day for Cadillac Fairview to announce it is suspending the system at the Calgary malls.
Shopping centres use security cameras all the time to record us as we walk and buy. We’ve surrendered that much privacy already. So what is it about facial recognition software that spooks us — especially when so many eagerly use facial recognition on devices like the iPhone X or platforms such as Facebook and Google?
Jason Harley is a professor of educational psychology at the University of Alberta, whose research involves work with artificial intelligence, including using facial recognition technology, to see if it can learn to detect and identify emotions.
“Many of us don’t do a good job of being careful about what information is being collected from us. And it’s hard for an everyday person to stay abreast of all the changes happening on different platforms and devices,” said Harley.
“This is really about privacy literacy, It’s about what’s being collected about us and how it’s being used.”
Facial recognition software, he says, works by plotting points on your face, then using those points to extrapolate things like age and gender. Right now, it often makes mistakes. But as biometric technology grows more sophisticated, businesses could use it to track customers in extremely detailed ways.
The day might come when a mall could scan and match your face scan to your Facebook profile or Google search history, the better to guess what to sell you. It could identify your emotions as you enter and leave a store, the better to figure out how to make customers happy. Or it could track you through the mall, in real time, for security reasons.
When companies use facial recognition artificial intelligence without public knowledge or consent, Harley worries it will breed distrust of the technology itself. Still, he welcomes the opportunity Cadillac Fairview has created, however inadvertently, for this public discussion.
“I think it’s a good thing to have this kind of privacy debate. We need to decide what we’re comfortable with, where we think lines should be drawn. Biometric data has the potential for good, when used responsibly. But we need to give people the tools to make informed decisions.”

Liputan6.com, New York - Sesuai janji, Samsung resmi mengungkap kehadiran smartphone teranyarnya, Galaxy Note 9, dalam ajang Galaxy Unpacked 2018.

Jelang peluncuran di Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York, Amerika Serikat (AS), Kamis (9/8/2018) waktu setempat, bocoran informasi menyangkut smartphone teranyar Samsung ini marak muncul di internet.

Dari informasi yang diberitakan oleh banyak media di dunia, nyaris semua kabar tersebut benar apa adanya.

How should we think about speech rights in the age of artificial intelligence and advanced robotics? On today’s episode of So to Speak: The Free Speech Podcast, we are joined by First Amendment scholars Ronald Collins and David Skover. They are the authors of the new book, Robotica: Speech Rights & Artificial Intelligence. From the printing press to the internet, advances in communications technology often upset the established order and spawn demands for censorship.

          Anki Unveils Vector Home Robot with AI Learning      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Anki’s Cozmo is a fun fist-size robot for education and play, and now the company is taking its compact robots to the next level with Vector. Unlike Cozmo, Vector doesn’t need your smartphone to supplement its brain, and it uses artificial intelligence to learn. It’s also designed to be more of an assistant and can learn names and faces, as well as link to the internet to find answers to your questions. The idea is to make Vector your companion instead of just a robot toy. There’s a Kickstarter so you can get a Vector for US$199.99 on October 9th, and it’ll be available to the general public for $249.99 on October 12th.
