          Perkuat Layanan, BNI dan Triplogic Bangun Sistem Transaksi Digital      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Industri perbankan saat ini tengah berlomba-lomba dalam menciptakan produk digital banking yang sederhana dan memiliki fasilitas yang lengkap.

Salah satunya ialah PT Bank Negara Indonesia (Persero) Tbk atau BNI terus meningkatkan pelayanan dalam dunia perbankan. Sebelumnya, Bank BNI merupakan bank konvensional yang kini telah menjadi digital bank.

Kini, PT Bank Negara Indonesia (Persero) Tbk atau BNI merambah sektor logistik dengan menggandeng sebuah perusahaan start up, yaitu Triplogic.

Kerja sama ini sekaligus mengukuhkan BNI sebagai bank yang menyediakan segala kebutuhan untuk bertransaksi secara digital sekaligus mengelola keuangan secara mutakhir bagi perusahaan-perusahaan berbasis digital baru yang saat ini.

Sukses kerja sama dengan Triplogic ini menegaskan kembali posisi BNI sebagai Digital Bank yang memiliki seperangkat layanan lengkap dan dapat membantu perusahaan start up dalam mengakselerasi bisnisnya hingga mencapai level komersial.

Dukungan tersebut merupakan kontribusi BNI terhadap upaya pemerintah menekan biaya logistik di Indonesia. Kerja sama BNI dan Triplogic juga merupakan optimalisasi bisnis logistik yang terus mengalami revolusi.

Tak hanya itu, kolaborasi ini juga merupakan upaya sinergis untuk mempercepat program literasi dan inklusi keuangan pada lini kehidupan masyarakat, sektor logistik misalnya.

Dalam mendukung Triplogic, BNI menggunakan sistem pembayaran khusus yaitu aplikasi yap! (Your All Payment). Aplikasi pembayaran yang terhubung pada 3 sumber dana ini merupakan sistem yang tepat untuk diterapkan dalam rangka mempermudah pengguna jasa Triplogic. Penerapan layanan keuangan BNI ini juga membuka perluasan bisnis Triplogic hingga dapat merambah ke sektor non-logistik.

Kerja sama kedua pihak ini ditandai dengan penandatanganan Perjanjian Kerja Sama (PKS) antara Direktur Bisnis Ritel BNI Tambok P Setyawati dan CEO Triplogic Oki Earlivan S  di Jakarta, Senin (10 September 2018). Penandatanganan tersebut disaksikan oleh Direktur Teknologi Informasi & Operasi BNI Dadang Setiabudi.

Tambok menuturkan, banyak manfaat yang dapat diperoleh kedua belah pihak dari kerja sama tersebut. Bagi BNI antara lain agen-agen Triplogic, yang mencapai lebih dari 20.000 agen, dapat ditingkatkan kapabilitasnya menjadi agen bank yang di BNI disebut Agen46.

Nantinya, agen-agen Triplogic ini juga dapat diberi dukungan pembiayaan  dari BNI, antara lain dengan diberi Kredit Usaha Rakyat (KUR). Pada sisi lain, agen-agen Triplogic juga dapat memperluas bisnisnya sebagai Agen46 yang memberikan layanan perbankan.

"Kerja sama ini juga akan membuat BNI semakin memahami behaviour industri logistik, yang sangat penting bagi pengembangan fungsi intermediasi BNI," ujar Tambok.

Ia melanjutkan, untuk mendukung perusahaan start up yang inovatif tersebut, BNI menyediakan sistem pembayaran melalui aplikasi yap! dan Internet Payment Gateway (IPG) di aplikasi dan website Triplogic.

Nantinya, dengan hadirnya yap! dan IPG dapat memberikan kemudahan pilihan pembayaran bagi user Triplogic. Kebaharuan tersebut perlu didukung oleh sistem pembayaran yang tidak kalah praktisnya dengan Triplogic.  

Selain praktis bertransaksi dengan yap! pada aplikasi Triplogic, pengguna aplikasi yap! juga sudah dapat menggunakannya untuk bertransaksi pada merchant-merchant lain, yaitu antara lain KFC, Hokben, Garuda Online, Chatime, Abuba, Kafe Betawi, Super Indo, Family Mart, JNE, dinomarket.com, kiostix, coldstone, rejuve, hanamasa, Solaria, dan berbagai merchant yang masuk ke dalam kategori UMKM.

Salah satu perusahaan anak BNI, BNI Life juga turut berpartisipasi dengan menyediakan asuransi jiwa gratis hingga Rp 20 juta dengan jangka waktu 3 bulan kepada traveller yang menggunakan aplikasi Triplogic.

Agen46

Pada momentum yang sama, BNI juga meningkatkan inklusi keuangan dimana  Triplogic akan dijadikan sebagai Agen 46 Badan Hukum. Dengan cara ini, agen-agen Triplogic yang merupakam para feeder dapat dijadikan sebagai Agen46 (perorangan) yang dapat melayani fasilitas perbankan.

Layanan perbankan yang dapat diberikan antara lain buka rekening, setor, tarik tunai ataupun pembayaran berbagai macam tagihan. Harapannya BNI dan Triplogic dapat menciptakan sinergi positif untuk perluasan inklusi keuangan yang merata di berbagai daerah di Indonesia.

Selain itu, hadirnya Triplogic memudahkan pelaku usaha mikro kecil dan menengah (UMKM) untuk melakukan pengiriman barang dengan lebih cepat sampai ke tujuan. Tidak sedikit pengguna Triplogic adalah pelaku UMKM.

Peluang tersebut dimanfaatkan BNI untuk memfasilitasi penyalurkan KUR bagi pengguna Triplogic yang dianggap layak untuk dibiayai sehingga dapat mengembangkan usaha dan meningkatkan omset pelaku UMKM tersebut.

Dengan begitu, BNI mendukung penuh pertumbuhan ekonomi masyarakat pelaku UMKM, khususnya para pedagang pengguna Triplogic.

BNI akan terus menjalin kerja sama dengan perusahaan start up/fintech  untuk menyediakan layanan-layanan seperti yap!, IPG, Agen 46, Cinta (Chatbot berbasis Artificial Inteiligence) serta layanan lainnya yang dimaksudkan untuk meningkatkan customer experience dan menciptakan ekosistem digital. Jumlah Agen46 sendiri telah mencapai 103 ribu agen di seluruh Indonesia.

Triplogic menjadi salah satu inovasi dalam bisnis pengiriman barang. Barang yang akan dititipkan ke traveller nantinya dijemput oleh bus, mitra pengemudi dari Triplogic. Feeder akan mengantar barang tersebut ke bandara, dan di bandara akan diterima oleh petugas Triplogic. Sesampainya di bandara tujuan, traveller bertugas mengambil barang berlogo Triplogic dari bagasi pesawat.

Selanjutnya, traveller akan menyerahkan barang tersebut kepada petugas Triplogic yang sudah menunggu di pintu kedatangan. Barang kemudian akan kembali dikirim menggunakan  feeder ke alamat tujuan. Sebagai balas jasa, pemilik bagasi akan mendapatkan keuntungan dari pemanfaatan bagasi tersebut.

Dengan kerjasama tersebut, BNI merupakan partner ideal untuk para fintech atau start up komersialidasi, akselerasi dan pengembangan bisnis.

          AI Carving The Niche Of Digital Advertising      Cache   Translate Page      


AI Carving The Niche Of Digital Advertising

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the complicated terms of the modern age, many sectors feel intimidated by the concept of using machines to make decisions. People feel uneasiness in relying on machines to take actions and consider AI as a threat to mankind.

On the other hand, marketing & advertising industry is among those sectors who have utilized AI technology in creating better business opportunities. In digital advertising using data to make a decision isn't a new concept. The online advertising industry has been familiar with AI and has used the technology for creating better decisions to inspire innovation. Artificial intelligence has been a catalyst in the constant growth of digital advertising.  

Data Learning System

In digital advertising, the term AI is closely linked with machine learning, where the computer system improves its performance by data analysis without any human intrusion. In digital advertising the technology is often used to observe the consumer online behavior and then create a personalized advertisement for the customer. For example, if the consumer makes 10 impressions on an individual product then ads featuring the same and similar products will appear on his wall. This form of artificial intelligence is also termed as data learning system which has played a vital role in generating sales.

Natural Learning Process

Natural learning process (NLP) is a technique that involves the learning of human language by a machine. Due to variation in language and accents, it often gets difficult for machines to understand the human language. Natural learning process improves machine learning for better communication and interaction between humans and machines.

Currently, the NLP in artificial intelligence can be found in multiple devices such as Amazon - Alexa, Apple -Siri, Google - Assistant etc. have shown how technology can make our lives easier and hassle-free. In the present world our life revolves around AI, such devices have transformed into a part of our day to day life.  Advertising and marketing industry has used NLP to improve the customer buying behavior.

Chatbots

In the present-day majority of advertisers use chatbots as another form of artificial intelligence to make customer shopping experience smooth and memorable. A chatbot is an automated chat system specially designed to help the customer with all his queries. Chatbots are fed with commonly asked questionnaires and data based on the user's online habit. In case the user asks anything out of their data then the chatbots forward the query to the advertiser. Currently, these chatbots operate in form of chat pop ups but in near future, we can expect chatbots to be designed with sensory techniques that show human-like features such as voice, touch capabilities that will imitate like a real person.

Augmented Reality

Augmented reality (AR) is the buzzword of present-day online advertising industry. The best example of augmented reality was previously seen in the Pokémon GO, an online mobile game that became a leading trend in the gaming sector. In present day many marketers use the technology for advertising purpose because they give real-life experience to the consumer. Augmented reality ads are immersive, it gives the user a realistic product experience without the physical presence of the product. Augmented ads have been a trendsetter in the e-commerce industry where the advertisers have used it to beat the offline retail market. Earlier there used to be a conflict between online vs offline market. Users felt more secured and trusted offline stores as they can feel and see the product which was not possible in online shopping.  It seemed like a risky job to invest money in an online product, but AR has totally changed the way consumer shopping behavior.

Ever since the involvement of artificial intelligence marketers and advertisers have been using it for monetary benefits. The present-day advertising methods are laced with latest AI innovations that not only allure consumers into taking actions but have also changed their perception of online purchase. The modern-day advertisers have transformed AI into a part of our day to day browsing experience that helps them to cater us the desired and most relevant product rather than catering anything irrelevant. Seeing this we can assure that the AI is the future of digital advertising industry and with its help, the digital industry will surely boom in coming years.

          看图轻松理解数据结构与算法:冒泡排序      Cache   Translate Page      

前言

推出一个新系列,《看图轻松理解数据结构和算法》,主要使用图片来描述常见的数据结构和算法,轻松阅读并理解掌握。本系列包括各种堆、各种队列、各种列表、各种树、各种图、各种排序等等几十篇的样子。

冒泡排序

冒泡排序是一种很简单的排序算法,主要思想就是不断走访待排序序列,每次只比较两个相邻元素,如果这俩元素顺序不符合要求则对换它们,不断重复知道没有相邻元素需要对换。在不断走访比较过程中,越大的元素经过交换会慢慢走到数列顶端,所以看起来它就像气泡一样不断往上冒,于是就叫冒泡。

排序要点

  1. 比较相邻两个元素,如果前一元素比后一元素大则对换它们的位置。

  2. 从头开始对每一对相邻元素都执行1的对比工作,直至结尾最后一对,执行完一轮后,该轮最大的元素被换置到最后。

  3. 针对所有元素执行若干轮1和2操作,每次经过2操作后都会将该轮的最大值换置到该轮最后,而最后元素不参与下一轮。

  4. 每一轮对越来越少的元素重复3操作,直至没有任何一对元素需要比较。

排序过程

假设我们有如下5个元素,分别为72,58,22,34,14,现在进行冒泡排序。

imageimage

第一遍,对所有元素前后两个元素进行比较,

imageimage

72比58大,两者对换,完成后继续与下一元素比较,

imageimage

72比22大,两者对换,完成后继续与下一元素比较,

imageimage

72比34大,两者对换,完成后继续与下一元素比较,

imageimage

72比14大,两者对换,72已经到序列最顶端,它是这一轮的最大的元素。下一轮比较排除72,只需比较58,22,34,14。开始比较,

imageimage

58比22大,两者对换,完成后继续与下一元素比较,

imageimage

58比34大,两者对换,完成后继续与下一元素比较,

imageimage

58比14大,两者对换,58已经到该轮序列最顶端,它是这一轮的最大的元素。下一轮比较排除58,只需比较22,34,14。开始比较,

imageimage

22比34小,两者不对换,继续与下一元素比较,

imageimage

34比14大,两者对换,34已经到该轮序列最顶端,它是这一轮的最大的元素。下一轮比较排除34,只需比较22,14。开始比较,

imageimage

22比14大,两者对换,22已经到该轮序列最顶端,它是这一轮的最大的元素。除了22后只剩一个元素,停止比较,至此完成了整个排序工作。

           Reaching Out: 2nd Annual Government Experience Award Winners Embrace Citizens Where They Are       Cache   Translate Page      

While citizens have always been at the heart of government work, the way they experience their governments in a digital age is in many ways a new frontier. The second annual Government Experience awards, conducted by the Center for Digital Government,* offer ample evidence that the variety, availability and quality of the citizen interaction is a front-and-center consideration among state, county and local technology leaders.

At the state level, a surprising 80 percent of those surveyed rank chatbots and Alexa-type artificial intelligence (AI) implementations among their top three experience avenues. “We knew a lot of agencies were experimenting with it, but the fact that it made the top three for so many of them was really interesting,” said Dustin Haisler, CDG chief innovation officer.

States also are digging into the citizen experience with government more deeply than ever before, focusing not just on the user interface but also on under-the-hood issues. They’re developing policies to ensure experience is not only available but effective.

“They are using their governance to look at how they select channels, to measure what they are doing, especially with the new technologies,” Haisler said. “Do we have people using these new technologies? Are we reaching the right segments of the population? It’s about fitting all these things together.”

At the county level, social media has risen to the fore. “They use it to disseminate public information, which everybody did five years ago, but then they also are using it for service requests, which is new,” Haisler said. “People can actually do things on social media — they can initiate requests, they can engage with the county in new ways.” 

Counties also are leveraging social as the venue of choice in support of emergency communications, another novel iteration. 

At the city level, it’s all about mobile, with 64 percent of respondents citing mobile apps as one of their top three engagement channels. “These are not just mobile websites but actual native apps,” Haisler said. “Mobile is not cheap, you have multiple platforms with frequent update cycles, so it was surprising to see that sheer volume of native, standalone applications.” 

2018 Innovation Awards

Maryland received an innovation awards for its Enterprise Widget Framework (EWF) API Library, which makes it easy for state agencies to deliver unified branding. “A big problem with agencies at the state level is the lack of common components and capabilities,” said CDG Chief Innovation Officer Dustin Haisler. “Maryland is focused on connecting the dots, enabling agencies to maintain consistent branding and standards so we are all operating off the same playbook and it all feels like the same site.”

A recognized public-private partnership in Miami-Dade County brought together city officials, AT&T, Ericsson and MetroTech Net in support traffic management in the county’s Smart City Operation Center. “Normally in a partnership you have one vendor with one agency. In this case you had a very diverse group of entities all supporting improved efficiencies and improved outcomes,” Haisler said. “This approach is really interesting: They are creating an entire ecosystem. This is how agencies should go about public-private partnerships, by leveraging a diverse set of stakeholders with a broad range of skills.”

Albuqeurque was recognized this year for its 311 service requests, which leveraged Alexa in novel ways, going beyond earlier, information-only applications. “They offer the ability to actually request a service,” Haisler said. “Most of the time these voice assistants regurgitate information: What is the number for the DMV? How do I renew a hunting license? This is the first we have seen at the local level that allows people to actually request trash pickup or a graffiti cleanup.”

No stranger to an Innovation Award, Utah used Amazon’s artificial intelligence products to sift through user feedback and ferret out citizen needs. “We took all the data from our feedback database — feedback on dozens or hundreds of online services — and we applied AI to look at trends and sentiment analysis,” said Utah CTO David Fletcher. “That allows us to address specific services, things like driver’s license renewals and vehicle renewals, so that now it only takes a few seconds to do a vehicle renewal on mobile. We were able to make those changes in part based on that AI analysis.”

It all adds up to a big year for citizen experience, both in terms of the diversity of platforms available and the breadth of services on offer. Looking ahead, a current focus on breadth — expanding experience across multiple platforms — could drive a push toward some form of consolidation. 

“If you have 90,000 local government agencies and each one has 10 different channels, that gets to be a pretty big number,” Haisler said. “We are going to see them streamlining. People will query using whatever interface they prefer and it will find the relevant information for them. That’s where all of this is leading.”

Utah — First Place in the State Category

Long an active player in the effort to expand the digital citizen experience, Utah in 2018 set its sights on the emerging realm of AI and the automated assistant.

“Our goal is to try to be wherever the people are, to provide services and information beyond just the Web,” said Chief Technology Officer David Fletcher. To that end, the state has been rolling out digital assistants. “We have interactive services on Amazon Echo and Google Assistant. We have a driver’s license exam on both platforms so people getting their driver’s license can take a practice test online. We have a notary practice test on the Google Assistant, which they can use on their mobile phones or on the Google Home devices.” 

Fletcher sees the voice-friendly platforms as the next wave in citizen experience, and he envisions expanding the portfolio. “Ultimately, we want to enable many different services, but we are starting simple, with things like fishing reports on different bodies of water around the state. Then we’ll see where it goes,” he said.

The state is also looking at emerging interfaces. Last year it launched its first-ever Apple Watch application to deliver updates on bills going through the state Legislature. In pursuing this course, the device makers’ penchant for more open environments is proving helpful.

“Most of these platforms have an open API [application programming interface] environment, so we develop all our services using APIs and Web services. Then as new platforms become available we can use those existing APIs and not have a big development effort,” Fletcher said. “We want to develop our platform in a way that we can take advantage of these new opportunities, instead of just being siloed into these legacy systems. The APIs allow us flexibility moving forward.”

Oakland County, Mich. — First Place in the County Category

Oakland County, Mich., CIO and Deputy County Executive Phil Bertolini views government experience as a conversation, and he’s looking to facilitate that dialog.

Take social media, for instance. The county is deep into Facebook and Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn. The effort draws over 590,000 visitors in an average month, and when they have questions, Bertolini wants to be sure they can get answers.

That means backing up the technology with a human element, a social media team whose job it is to broker connections between user needs and relevant county agencies.

“We have live people at the other end who engage, and they don’t just throw it out there and assume it’s taken care of. Our social media team will monitor that discussion and if there is no response form the department or division, they will follow up,” he said. “There’s nothing worse than initiating a conversation and then just having dead air.”

In addition to offering a timely, human response to incoming queries, the county also actively courts citizen input. Last year the IT team crowdsourced a GIS-enabled inventory of holiday lights, using citizen input to create a map of festive displays.

“It sounds trivial, but it shows us what is possible when you listen to people,” Bertolini said. “Some of these displays were generating revenue for charity, and in one case revenue went up 150 percent based on information citizens were putting out to us, and that we in turn were sharing with everyone else.”

Whatever form the citizen experience takes, it is more than likely going to unfold on a cellphone — that’s where 60 percent of the county’s digital traffic comes from. With this in mind, Bertolini has placed a special emphasis on making all county offerings phone-friendly.

This has an IT aspect: It means using responsive design, building pages with bigger buttons and implementing ease of navigation. But there’s a human element as well.

“We have 170 content managers across government and we are constantly training them: Don’t put that giant graphic on there, make it more concise, more streamlined,” Bertolini said. “Educating our people has gone a long way toward making government more accessible.”

Louisville, Ky. — First Place in the City Category

Tech leaders in Louisville decided the raise the usability bar this year, with revamps to the city’s website in both desktop and mobile versions.

Visitors to the website now are invited front and center to enter their address information, a simple step that unlocks broad functionality. “It automatically populates information like your street-sweeping date and how to contact your council member. The most important information is right there are your fingertips,” said Sharon Meador, manager for business systems in the Louisville Metro Government IT department.

A new quick-search function makes it easier to reach commonly read pages, as does a new “popular pages” tab driven by Google Analytics and updated weekly.

The mobile site got a similar facelift. With more than half the city’s public Web traffic now coming via mobile, IT Director Chris Seidt said his team sought to make information more visible. “We want those most commonly accessed pieces to be right in front of the user, rather than people having to go and hunt,” he said.

The city this year also expanded its ongoing collaboration with traffic app maker Waze, in which the city supplies data on road closures, for example, while Waze delivers valuable traffic information.

This year the city moved the program to Amazon Web Services for greater scalability, and also opened the source code in order to spur participation by other municipalities. “Now other cities can stand up their own data analysis tools and run those programs very easily,” Seidt said. “Now they can collaborate with us, and even add functionality that maybe we hadn’t thought of.”

The city has taken IT out into the physical world as well, teaming with the American Printing House for the Blind to develop smartphone-based wayfinding systems for the visually impaired. After prototyping a system in a small civic building, the city rolled out a large-scale version in its 50,000-square-foot judicial center.

“Now people are able to get audible navigation cues on their phone: 'You are 40 feet from making a left turn.' It allows for more independence for our visually impaired residents,” Seidt said. “That’s not something that the city would lead on typically, but with this partnership it was something that we could help to foster and grow.”

          5 Ways Artificial Intelligence Is Already Transforming the Banking Industry      Cache   Translate Page      

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) -- and its growing impact on and applicability for individuals and businesses alike -- is one of today’s most widely discussed topics. From virtual assistants like Siri and Alexa,to chatbots created by Facebook and Drift , AI is having a significant impact on the lives of consumers.

Related:#Five Technology Trends That Will Disrupt Your Banking Style

A study from Statista showed that the number of consumers using virtual assistants worldwide is expected to exceed one billion in 2018. Additionally, a 2018 survey by Accenture projected that 37 percent of U.S. consumers will own a digital voice assistant (DVA) device by the end of 2018.

It is readily apparent how AI-powered technology is making inroads into everyday life through DVAs and other consumer products, but AI is also having a transformative effect on an industry that impacts virtually all consumers and businesses: banking. Here are five ways that AI is already transforming the banking industry.

Customer service automation

As natural language processing technology evolves, consumers find it increasingly difficult to distinguish between a voice bot and a human customer service representative. This stems from improved abilities on the part of voice and chatbots to resolve customer issues without human intervention.

The benefits to banks of customer service automation are obvious: AIcould lead to significant cost reductions. A recent study by Autonomous predicted that AI could lead to 1.2 million jobs being cut in the banking and lending industry, resulting in up to $450 billion in industrysavings by 2030.

Despite the potential rewards customer service automation promises, banks and other businesses need to proceed with caution in relying too heavily on voice and chatbots. The popularity of GetHuman illustrates this: It'sa website that connects consumers with human CSRs to resolve their issue. In fact, voice and chatbots often work best when augmenting rather than replacing humans. At a minimum, the option to speak to a human, if necessary, should be readily available.

Related:This Banker Explains Why Confluence of Fintech and Banks is Unavoidable

Want an example of how banks are creatively employing AI to serve customers? The Swiss bank UBS, ranked number 35 globally for its volume of assets, according to Accuity’s August 2018 global bank rankings --has partnered with Amazon to incorporate its “ Ask UBS ” service into Alexa-powered Echo speaker devices.

Ask UBS, which is aimed at UBS’s European wealth management clients, enables users to receive wide-ranging advice and analysis on global financial marketsjust by “asking” Alexa. “Ask UBS” also acts as a teaching resource, offering definitions and examples of acronyms and jargon related to the financial industry.

While Ask UBS can make a call from a UBS financial advisor to a customer’s phone upon request, it is not yet able to access individual portfolios, execute trades or perform other transactions; it can'toffer personalized advice based on a client’s holdings and goals. According to the Wall Street Journal , the reason is primarily security and privacy concerns. More in-depth and personalized service through a DVA may not be far off, though. In the article, a UBS spokesman stated that the company's aim isto make “Ask UBS” and similar tools “secure, compliant, and trustable for clients.”

Personalization

Banks have access to a wealth of customer data, including detailed demographics, website analyticsand records of online and offline transactions. By utilizing machine learning to integrate and analyze information from multiple, discrete databases to form a 360-degree customer view, banks are better positioned to personalize products, servicesand interactions based on the behavior of individual clients.

According to James Eardley , global director of industry marketing for enterprise software giant SAP, “The next step within the digital service model is for banks to price for the individual, and to negotiate that price in real time, taking personalization to the ultimate level.”

While personalized pricing of this kind may only become prevalent in the future, banks are already utilizingAI-processed behavioral data to advise individual clients on appropriate credit and savings products, based on their goals and habits. Santander, the world’s 14th largest bank , measured by its current assets, even hosted a competition , with a prize of $60,000, on the machine learning crowdsourcing site Kaggle , encouraging data scientists to write code that better “pairs products with people.”

Security

In the banking and payments industry, personalization extends far beyond marketing and product customization,into security. A growing number of banks are utilizing biometric data, like fingerprints, to replace or augment passwords and other forms of client verification.

A report by Goode Intelligence forecast that 1.9 billion bank customers will be using some form of biometric identification by 2021. The Guardian reported that U.K. bank Halifax even experimented with Bluetooth wristbands that identified a client’s unique heartbeat to authenticate account access.

          An AI startup that claimed it can beat doctors in an exam is putting £100 million into creating 500 new jobs      Cache   Translate Page      

Ali Parsa

  • British startup Babylon Health says it will invest £100 million from its own balance sheet into hiring hundreds of scientists to push forward the use of artificial intelligence in health.
  • Babylon already has several contracts with the NHS, the UK's national health service, and its AI medical service is embedded in Samsung phones in the US.
  • The company will move to a new headquarters in London within the next 18 months to house its new staff.
  • CEO Ali Parsa was outspoken in his rejection of criticism from doctors, who have pointed out that Babylon's claims are not peer-reviewed and that its "GP at Hand" app may be having a negative impact on GP surgeries.

British medical startup Babylon Health will invest £100 million in hiring more than 500 researchers, scientists, and engineers over the next year to develop the use of artificial intelligence in healthcare.

Chief executive Ali Parsa said this would more than double Babylon's current team to more than 1,000 staff, and that the company would eventually move into new headquarters in London over the next 18 months to house the new recruits. The firm is currently headquartered in Kensington, London, and is planning to take over the rest of the offices in its building. 

The artificial intelligence research will build on software that Babylon showed off in late June. The company claimed at the time that its AI could assess common conditions more accurately than doctors. The idea is to expand the AI from primary care, which refers to the stage when patients first approach their GPs, to helping to diagnose and manage chronic diseases, which is currently threatening to overwhelm the UK's NHS health service.

Babylon's announcement coincided with an endorsement from health secretary Matt Hancock, who has pledged to reform the NHS with technology.

But the company has come under considerable scrutiny and criticism from the medical community.

Specifically, doctors have criticised the "GP at Hand" app, which is powered by Babylon and offers patients video appointments through an app. The worry is that Babylon would receive NHS funding for looking after younger, fitter patients who would be more likely to use a digital service. That would leave physical GP surgeries with the burden and expense of looking after elderly patients with complex needs.

They have also criticised Babylon's June claims about its AI chatbot, namely that its claims had not been peer-reviewed. Babylon did publish an explanation about how its AI worked on its site, though it's listed under the "marketing" section.

In a call with Business Insider, chief executive Ali Parsa dismissed the criticism that Babylon was cherry-picking younger patients as "complete nonsense." 

He said not only were older patients increasingly using GP at Hand — though he didn't give figures — but added that surgeries are paid less for looking after younger, fitter patients. "The cherries are actually the elderly," he said.

Asked about whether Babylon would submit its AI research for peer review, he said that model of waiting 18 months for submissions to be accepted to an academic journal was outdated.

He added that patients themselves were satisfied with the technology.

"One person every few seconds is using our technology," he said, citing a net promoter score of 82, a metric usually used by marketing departments to measure customer satisfaction. "We published the paper, we showed the methodology... the only thing we didn't do was this situation  of waiting 18 months for a peer-reviewed paper."

Parsa said the company had to submit its paperwork to medical organisations such as the MHRA and the US Food and Drug Administration. "Everybody can see our methodology but this peer-review model ... which two giants of journals advocate massively, was created in the 19th century, when science moved at snail pace." (Scientific American suggests the birth of peer review was in 1731.)

Parsa's criticism is unlikely to win over the cynics. His view is that technology moves too quickly to wait for a lengthy evaluation process.

Asked if the startup was now profitable, Parsa said licensing its technology to partners such as Samsung and Chinese internet giant had been hugely lucrative, and said the firm was in and out of profitability. He said the firm was focused on growth and expanding its capabilities.

Analytics Translator – The Most Important New Role in Analytics

Summary:  The role of Analytics Translator was recently identified by McKinsey as the most important new role in analytics, and a key factor in the failure of analytic programs when the role is absent. The role of Analytics Translator was recently identified by McKinsey as the most important new role in analytics, and a key factor in the failure of analytic programs when the role is absent.As our profession of data science has evolved, any number of authors including myself has offered different taxonomies to describe the differences among the different ‘tribes’ of data scientists.  We may disagree on the categories but we agree that we’re not all alike.Ten years ago, around the time that Hadoop and Big Data went open source there was still a perception that data scientists should be capable of performing every task in the analytics lifecycle. The obvious skills were model creation and deployment, and data blending and munging.  Other important skills in this bucket would have included setting up data infrastructure (data lakes, streaming architectures, Big Data NoSQL DBs, etc.).  And finally the skills that were just assumed to come with seniority, storytelling (explaining it to executive sponsors), and great project management skills.Frankly, when I entered the profession, this was true and for the most part, in those early projects, I did indeed do it all.Data Science – A Profession of SpecialtiesIt’s fair to say that today nobody expects this.  Ours is rapidly becoming a field of specialists, defined by data types (NLP, image, streaming, classic static data), role (data engineer, junior data scientist, senior data scientist), or by use cases (predictive maintenance, inventory forecasting, personalized marketing, fraud detection, chatbot UIs, etc.).  These aren’t rigid boundaries and a good data scientist may bridge several of these, but not all.Read full article here.

          Bucky Barnes returns one more time in WINTER SOLDIER #1      Cache   Translate Page      

Media Release -- You know his name. You know the things he's done. And now that the man known as The Winter Soldier has found redemption, he's going to help others do the same…even if it's not as easy as he expects. This December, the acclaimed creative team of Kyle Higgins (Power Rangers, C.O.W.L.) and Rod Reis (Secret Empire, Doctor Strange: Damnation, C.O.W.L.) will reunite to tell the next chapter of Bucky Barnes' story in an all-new adventure that readers won't want to miss!

"As someone with quite a bit of experience writing grown-up sidekicks, I know firsthand how important it is to define the character outside of their relationship with their mentor," said Higgins. "Since being freed from Soviet brainwashing, Bucky has done a massive amount of work to atone for his sins--becoming Captain America, spending time in the Gulag, dying to save the world... in many ways, he's found redemption. So, what's next for him? He's going to help other people do the same."

"To be able to work with a character that has such a rich legacy and striking visual identity is really exciting," added Reis. "Taking Bucky forward and building a world unique to him – one that still respects his past – is an artist's dream. I can't wait for people to see what we've come up with."

"As someone who grew up loving sidekicks, I've been fascinated by Bucky Barnes for as long as I've been reading comics," said Higgins. "Then, in 2005, I fell in love with the character all over again thanks to Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting's incredible Winter Soldier run. Now, along with one of my favorite artists in comics, I'm thrilled to be taking Bucky Barnes on his next journey."

          In the Prime of (Artificial) Life      Cache   Translate Page      
Marjorie Prime at Redwood Curtain Anyone who's spent any time online in the last few years has undoubtedly encountered a chatbot — that helpful cyber-entity that's always ready to (try to) answer your questions. Now imagine that chatbot — and its self-limiting conversational skills — has left cyberspace and moved in with you, taking on the holographic form of a human you were close to but who is no longer alive. Welcome to the world of Marjorie Prime, the first production in Redwood Curtain Theatre's 2018-19 season. Set in the not-too-distant future, Jordan Harrison's 2014 play artfully predicts what life in an assisted living facility might be like if the facility's management determined that residents with dementia would be best served by having an on-call companion from their past. Marjorie (Joan Schirle) is just such a resident. When we first meet her, a solicitous young man (William English III) is gently asking whether she has eaten recently. Resisting this line of questioning, Marjorie instead requests that the young man tell her a story. As the story (of how Marjorie's husband proposed to her) unfolds, we begin to understand that this young man is her late husband, Walter, as he appeared some 50 years earlier. Walter is a Prime — a holographic creation provided by the assisted living facility to be Marjorie's therapeutic companion and, through conversation, prevent her dementia from getting any worse. But the stories he can tell her are only those that have been fed to him by Marjorie herself and other members of her family, creating an interesting family dynamic, to say the least. Walter's presence was arranged by her daughter Tess (Christina Jioras) and son-in-law Jon (Gary Sommers) as a kindness but, while technology may appear to have solved some of the thornier problems of caring for an aging parent, the messy nature of the parent-child relationship has not gone away. Tess is terrified that Primes will make humans unnecessary, that we are telling them all our deepest, darkest secrets and have no control over what they will do with those secrets, while peacemaker Jon attempts to keep everyone at some manageable level of sanity. The play moves back and forward over several decades as we watch the relationships between the humans ebb and flow, and as others re-emerge as Primes, learning their own truths about themselves and their relationships through the inevitably filtered stories of others. Emotions, too, ebb and…

  • British startup Babylon Health says it will invest $100 million from its own balance sheet into hiring hundreds of scientists to push forward the use of artificial intelligence in health.
  • Babylon already has several contracts with the NHS, the UK's national health service, and its AI medical service is embedded in Samsung phones in the US.
  • The company will move to a new headquarters in London within the next 18 months to house its new staff.
  • CEO Ali Parsa was outspoken in his rejection of criticism from doctors, who have pointed out that Babylon's claims are not peer-reviewed and that its "GP at Hand" app may be having a negative impact on GP surgeries.

British medical startup Babylon Health will invest $100 million in hiring more than 500 researchers, scientists, and engineers over the next year to develop the use of artificial intelligence in healthcare.

Chief executive Ali Parsa said this would more than double Babylon's current team to more than 1,000 staff, and that the company would eventually move into new headquarters in London over the next 18 months to house the new recruits. The firm is currently headquartered in Kensington, London, and is planning to take over the rest of the offices in its building. 

The artificial intelligence research will build on software that Babylon showed off in late June. The company claimed at the time that its AI could assess common conditions more accurately than doctors. The idea is to expand the AI from primary care, which refers to the stage when patients first approach their GPs, to helping to diagnose and manage chronic diseases, which is currently threatening to overwhelm the UK's NHS health service.

Babylon's announcement coincided with an endorsement from health secretary Matt Hancock, who has pledged to reform the NHS with technology.

But the company has come under considerable scrutiny and criticism from the medical community.

Specifically, doctors have criticised the "GP at Hand" app, which is powered by Babylon and offers patients video appointments through an app. The worry is that Babylon would receive NHS funding for looking after younger, fitter patients who would be more likely to use a digital service. That would leave physical GP surgeries with the burden and expense of looking after elderly patients with complex needs.

They have also criticised Babylon's June claims about its AI chatbot, namely that its claims had not been peer-reviewed. Babylon did publish an explanation about how its AI worked on its site, though it's listed under the "marketing" section.

In a call with Business Insider, chief executive Ali Parsa dismissed the criticism that Babylon was cherry-picking younger patients as "complete nonsense." 

He said not only were older patients increasingly using GP at Hand — though he didn't give figures — but added that surgeries are paid less for looking after younger, fitter patients. "The cherries are actually the elderly," he said.

Asked about whether Babylon would submit its AI research for peer review, he said that model of waiting 18 months for submissions to be accepted to an academic journal was outdated.

He added that patients themselves were satisfied with the technology.

"One person every few seconds is using our technology," he said, citing a net promoter score of 82, a metric usually used by marketing departments to measure customer satisfaction. "We published the paper, we showed the methodology... the only thing we didn't do was this situation  of waiting 18 months for a peer-reviewed paper."

Parsa said the company had to submit its paperwork to medical organisations such as the MHRA and the US Food and Drug Administration. "Everybody can see our methodology but this peer-review model ... which two giants of journals advocate massively, was created in the 19th century, when science moved at snail pace." (Scientific American suggests the birth of peer review was in 1731.)

Parsa's criticism is unlikely to win over the cynics. His view is that technology moves too quickly to wait for a lengthy evaluation process.

Asked if the startup was now profitable, Parsa said licensing its technology to partners such as Samsung and Chinese internet giant had been hugely lucrative, and said the firm was in and out of profitability. He said the firm was focused on growth and expanding its capabilities.
