          Will AI make us dumb?      Cache   Translate Page      

Since the Enlightenment, humans have made unprecedented advances — in science, technology, health conditions, living standards and more — as reason and analysis replaced superstition. Now, technology may be threatening that system.

Driving the news: In a much-read essay in The Atlantic, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger argues that powerful artificial intelligence could replace human thought with data-driven decision-making.


If that happens, Axios' Kaveh Waddell reports, AI could chip away at our ability to think critically.

AI, by mastering certain competencies more rapidly and definitively than humans, could over time diminish human competence and the human condition itself as it turns it into data.
Henry Kissinger, in his June Atlantic essay

The context: Kissinger is referring to artificial general intelligence, a future form of AI that would be capable of human-like thought in a variety of fields. That’s very different from today's AI: algorithms that perform narrow tasks like identifying images and operating self-driving cars.

The big picture: Kaveh spoke with a half-dozen people from different fields about the essay. Some found it hard to fathom given how far AI is from general intelligence. Others, however, agreed with Kissinger's central thesis. Here is a sampling.

  • "I worry that human abilities may atrophy," says Daniel Weld, a professor at the University of Washington who studies human-computer interaction.
  • "My gut instinct is that we’ll get dumber in some ways — on the principle of muscle atrophy — even as we process vastly more information," says Darrin McMahon, a history professor at Dartmouth College who has written books about the Enlightenment.
  • McMahon told Kaveh to read the final paragraph of Michel Foucault’s 1966 book, "The Order of Things." In it, the philosopher imagines an ebbing of the ideas that defined humanity for centuries:
If some event of which we can at the moment do no more than sense the possibility — without knowing either what its form will be or what it promises — were to cause them to crumble … then one can certainly wager that man would be erased, like a face drawn in sand at the edge of the sea.

For now, AI is nowhere near rendering humans brains mush.

  • Today’s AI can’t yet approximate the abilities of even a 2-year-old child.
  • Andrew Ng, who founded Google Brain and launched Baidu's AI lab, tells Axios that AI at this stage is simply a tool, like Google or a calculator.

Whether AI does eventually approach or surpass the human capacity for broad thinking, there’s an alternate future in which machines don’t take over complex decisions completely, but instead supply humans with relevant advice and data.

  • Basic forms of these "centaurs" — so named because they're half human and half other being — already exist, as we’ve reported. Weld, for his part, considers this future more likely than Kissinger's.

The bottom line: Even in its current form, AI is well-suited for the Enlightenment-style thinking that Kissinger worries humans will abdicate.

  • In McMahon’s characterization, the Enlightenment elevated a type of analysis called "instrumental reason," a profit-loss calculus in which computers excel.
  • What remains is to set long-term goals. "This can tell us how to live. But something else has to tell us what to live for," McMahon said.

Google is taking a pass at a potential $10 billion contract.

The tech giant has made the decision to sit out of the the Pentagon’s competition for a possible $10 billion cloud-computing project.

SEE ALSO: Google exposed personal data of almost 500,000 and didn't disclose it

The Pentagon’s Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure cloud, or JEDI, is a project looking to find a solution for huge transfers of data from the Defense Department to military officials in order to make faster military decisions wherever in the world these officials may be.

Google cited its AI principles, which were published back in June, as the reason for dropping out of the bidding process.  Read more...

Fun Bridge 4.6.8


Device: Mac OS
Category: Games
Price: Free, Version: 4.6.4 -> 4.6.8 (iTunes)

Description:

Funbridge is an online bridge game allowing you to learn and play duplicate bridge wherever and whenever you like.

Bridge is a card game played with four people who play as two competing teams of two players called "pairs" (North-South and East-West). The players of the same team sit across from each other at a card table. Bridge consists of two parts: the auction, which determines the contract to fulfil, and the play, where the side that wins the bidding tries to take the tricks necessary to make their contract.

On Funbridge, you play South while North, East and West are played by the same artificial intelligence (AI) at all tables. So no need to wait until other players are available to play. The AI is available 24/7!

Other players play the same deals as you. The aim is to achieve the best result. You enter rankings allowing you to compare your play to other players.

Funbridge is designed for any type of players: from beginners (introductory module, lessons, exercises) to experts (tournaments). It also suits any player who wants to start playing bridge again (practice, challenges against friends).

Game modes:
- Get started with bridge: (re)discover the basics of bridge.
- Series tournaments: perfect to see how you compare with players of your level.
- Tournaments of the day: compare yourself to players from all around the world.
- Practice deals: play deals at your own pace without stress.
- Face the elites: pit yourself against top players from the Elite series.
- Challenges: challenge any player in head-to-head tournaments.
- Two-player game: practise with your favourite partner.
- Team Championship: create your team and compete against teams from all over the world.
- Federation tournaments: improve your federation ranking thanks to official tournaments held conjointly with bridge federations.
- Funbridge Points tournaments: play these tournaments to enter the Funbridge Points rankings and compare yourself to all players.
- Exclusive tournaments: create your own tournaments and discuss the deals you play.
- Commented tournaments: get valuable advice from a bridge champion.

You can also:
- Pause your deal or tournament
- Watch a replay of other players' moves
- Replay deals that you have already played
- Get the meaning of the bids made at the table
- Seek advice from the AI in case of doubt
- Set your bidding and card play conventions
- Access an analysis of your play once the deal is over
- Meet your friends and chat with them

Internet connection required: the AI is not in the app, which is therefore much more efficient and we can continuously improve it without you having to update it.

Facebook releases smart video chat speakers amid user privacy concern

DF-Xinhua Report

U.S. social media giant Facebook Monday unveiled a pair of artificial intelligence-powered smart video chat devices, Portal and Portal +, which are designed to connect people and feel like being in the same room.

   Facebook said the new video communication speakers with tablet-size screens for the home can dramatically change the way people keep in touch and their built-in AI technology makes video calling easier and more like hanging out.

   The debut of the Facebook-brand-bearing electronic gadgets represents the social network's first bold entry into the fray in a competition of consumer hardware with other internet giants such as Amazon and Google, which launched their smart speakers years ago.

   The Portal, which is equipped with a 10-inch 1280x800 display, can let users video chat with their families and friends over Facebook Messenger, while the Portal + has a 15-inch 1920x1080 pivoting display.

   Facebook said the two speakers are powered by AI as well as smart camera and sound technology that let users have a better, more convenience and hands-free experience. The speaker's Smart Camera can sense the movement and action, and automatically pans and zooms to keep everyone in view.

   While the two Facebook-branded hardware makes consumers' home smarter and better connected with family members, there is growing concern about user privacy that could arise from internet-related technology, especially after Facebook has been questioned about its privacy policy since a data breach scandal earlier this year.

   Facebook has been extensively challenged about its security measures in protecting users' sensitive data since a British data mining firm Cambridge Analytica was accused of illegally accessing the data of 87 million Facebook users without their knowledge.

   Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was summoned to a hearing in U.S. Congress in April to explain the firm's privacy policies.

   Last month, Facebook reported vulnerabilities in its account login mechanism that could affect more than 90 million users, who risked having their private information including names and passwords accessed by hackers.

MUSIC

AI NEWS TODAY

AI doesn't wait for tomorrow … it creates tomorrow. Tomorrow is here … today!”

Artificial Intelligence helps track down alien life.”

China uses facial recognition to fine jay-walkers … ban some from foreign travel taking passports.

REMEMBER … LISTEN TO THE PODCAST TO LEARN ALL THE INFORMATION.

Last session we discussed: When super humans become advanced—enhanced—to a stage where the ordinary normal human is no longer relevant other than for “slave” activities, then … genocide—mass destruction—of the normal humans will become efficient in terms of Global Governance.”

INTRO TO THIS SESSION (PART 2)
If you survived after Part 1, I have another challenge for you. Let's see if you're up to it. This session we will discuss “Genetic Alteration … or ... Modification.”

Have you ever wished (or even prayed) that one of your relatives would be nicer, or just different? Well, try to change their offspring. All you have to do is “modify” the cell structure in the embryo.

Eugenics is the science and practice of selective human breeding. This theory became popular in the early 20th Century, but is no longer outwardly taken seriously due to the horrific practices of “racial hygiene” experiments by the Nazis in Germany.

ANY PROGRESS SINCE THEN?

There is a NEW form of eugenics—not only being espoused but heavily financed in research—to create super-humans via genetic modification of human genes in eggs, sperm and early stage embryos.

>>> NO RESETTING <<<

Subsequent generations will inherit these modifications.
Hope the Designers dont screw up!
Does this mean the NEWER people are not ALL human?

WAIT: I will reveal something about that in another session!

This NEW form is known as genetic engineering. Genetic engineering is a biotechnological application where the DNA or genes of organisms are manipulated according to the requirement.

You probably are wondering right now: “Is this for real?”   LISTEN TO THE PODCAST.

Remember last session we talked about GRIN? In this session―Part 2―we will discuss NBIC. The acronym NBIC was introduced into public discourse via this report in 2014 for:

Nanotechnology;
Biotechnology;
Information Technology; and,
Cognitive Science as the most popular term for emerging and converging technologies.

Cognitive Science is the study of thought, learning, and mental organization, which draws on aspects of psychology, linguistics, philosophy, and computer modeling, with a focus on how nervous systems represent, process, and transform information.

>>> QUESTION FOR YOU <<<

How do YOU think this “Brain-Nerve” organic synergy will partner with
changing … or ... enhancing humans by modifying their reproductive cells?

ETHICAL AND MORAL QUESTIONS

Human enhancement, or “germ-line engineering,” involves making "improvements" in reproductive cells. These changes will be passed on to subsequent generations.

Will enhanced-humans automatically receive the “Mark of the Beast?”

Will they be part-humans? LISTEN TO THE PODCAST.

WHERE DOES THE ANTI-CHRIST (THE BEAST / FALSE MESSIAH) FIT IN?

Check this out: The Anti-Christ, the Beast of Revelation … the “false messiah” ... would love to use AI to … LISTEN TO THE PODCAST.

Hang on again! Next time we will spend more time on what YOU really want to see happen: Robots that will be smarter than YOU. How will you defend yourself? And, don't think about kissing good looking robots … because they may have have Virtual Memory … and deposit a mysterious substance into your body!!!

The latest Future of Jobs report from the World Economic Forum speaks to how technological advancements like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and big data could affect jobs worldwide in the next five years. The anticipated redistribution of work between humans and machines may displace 75 million jobs, but it’s likely to create as many as 133 million new ones, too, according to the report.

This major shift in jobs may not reassure those of you who believe technology is a threat to your role. But the reality is that smarter technologies provide an amazing opportunity to focus on the ways that we create the most value for our organizations. Creativity and strategic thinking remain distinctly human advantages. When paired with the increased processing capacity of machines, there is plenty of room to be optimistic about the future.

Fuzzy by Tom Angleberger, 263 pages. Amulet Books, 2016. $14.95. 

Language: G, Mature Content: G, Violence: G

BUYING RECOMMENDATION: EL, MS – OPTIONAL

AUDIENCE APPEAL: AVERAGE

Barbara is the computerized assistant principal at Max’s school. She’s programmed for perfection and wants nothing less than exemplary test scores and behavior. Fuzzy is an experimental robot that’s been sent to the school to improve its artificial intelligence by hanging out with kids. Soon Fuzzy figures out that Barbara is intentionally lowering Max’s test scores so he will be sent to the remedial school. In her artiticially intelligent opinion, Max and his friends are bringing down the school’s rating.

I love Tom Angleberger, but this book doesn’t tickle the funny bone as much as either the Origami Yoda or Qwikpick Papers series. Both of those series were solidly realistic. The plot in this book gets a little too far out there to be as enjoyable. On top of that, it gets muddled with a couple of idiotic criminals who want to kidnap Fuzzy. The side plot is under developed and detracts from the main plot. It’s a fun read, but not a home run.

Do you know that organizations have started paying attention to whether AI/Machine Learning (ML) models are doing unbiased, safe, and trustable predictions based on ethical principles? Have you thought through the consequences if the AI/Machine Learning (ML) models you created for your clients make predictions, which are biased towards a class of customer, thus, hurting other customers? Have you imagined scenarios in which customers blame your organization of benefitting a section of customers (preferably their competitors), thus, filing a case against your organization and bringing bad names and loss to your business? Have you imagined the scenarios when ML models start making incorrect predictions, which could result in loss of business?

If the above has not started haunting you, its time that you started thinking about it. And, this is where you need to think about implementing the code of ethics in implementing Artificial Intelligence (AI) practices/principles.

CircleID CircleID: Alphabet Inc.’s Google has announced that it will not compete for the Pentagon’s cloud-computing contract with an estimated value of $10 billion; says the project may conflict with its corporate values on artificial intelligence. Aaron Gregg reporting in the Washington Post: "The contract, known as the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure, or JEDI for short, calls for a massive cloud-computing infrastructure that can handle classified U.S. military data and enable new defense capabilities. Bids are due Oct. 12. In a statement to The Washington Post, Google said it is dropping its bid for ethical reasons and because it lacked certain government certifications."

According to Tech Workers Coalition, an advocate for giving employees a say in technology company decisions, Google’s decision to withdraw from the cloud competition was due to pressure from thousands of workers, not AI principles. Tweeted today: "Google had every intention of bidding for, and possibly winning, the JEDI contract. They spent considerable resources and hours of top executive time courting military officials to do exactly this. They only dropped out due to sustained employee pressure."

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

This is probably great news for somebody, though I’m not sure who that might be. Facebook, already in the midst of a massive scandal about intrusive data manipulation, hacking breaches, and privacy concerns, is rolling out a new toy for everyone to install in their homes. It’s a smart video camera with rudimentary Artificial Intelligence built into it, and it will allow you to instantly jump into video chats with people while you go about your normal daily routine. It will even use sensors to figure out where you are, then rotate and zoom as required to keep you in the frame.

Hey… that’s not in the slightest way even a little bit creepy, right? (Associated Press)

Facebook is launching the first electronic device to bear its brand, a screen and camera-equipped gadget intended to make video calls easier and more intuitive.

But it’s unclear if people will open their homes to an internet-connected camera sold by a company with a questionable track record on protecting user privacy.

Facebook is marketing the device, called Portal, as a way for its more than 2 billion users to chat with one another without having to fuss with positioning and other controls. The device features a camera that uses artificial intelligence to automatically zoom as people move around during calls.

Portal? You named it… Portal? Why didn’t you just call it Window Into Your Private Life Externally Controlled by Our Faceless Army of Algorithms?

Tech industry observers were quick to note the eery similarity between this and the ever-present government monitoring devices in various dystopian novels. For the time being, Facebook is insisting that they won’t “listen to, view or keep the contents ” of video calls. They’re also including the supposed ability to “disable” the camera and microphone with a single tap and there’s a physical cover that you can put over the camera if you wish. (Which is probably at least better than the bandage I keep across the camera on my laptop.)

But why would anyone take much comfort in such assurances? I’ve been assured repeatedly that my phone doesn’t “listen” to anything I say unless I begin a sentence with “Okay, Google.” And yet my electronic helper has broken into any number of conversations in either amusing or disturbing ways. And if it’s “never listening” unless I say the magic words, how can it hear me say the magic words?

Smart televisions have been causing similar issues all over the world of late. And most of those other devices don’t even have Artificial Intelligence and facial recognition built into them. This camera sounds like one of the more alarming pieces of technology to emerge yet, and that would be true even it wasn’t being delivered by the privacy pirates at Facebook.

Hola Dannie aqui, 
 Today a strange trailer was released for "Peripheral" a new film by FX makeup artist turned director Paul Hyett. Hyett directed "The Seasoning House," "Howl" and "Heretiks" and is credited as working in the special effects field on 18 different projects and over 60 credits for work in the cinematic makeup industry.  "Peripheral" stars Hannah Arterton ("Walking on Sunshine" and "Heretiks"), Tom Conti ("The Duelists," and "Paddington 2"), Rosie Day ("The Seasoning House," and "Heretiks"), Jenny Seagrove ("Zoe" and "The Guardian"), and Elliot James Langridge ("Northern Soul," and "Habit").
 
IMDB describes the film as-
"Bobbi Johnson is a young literary sensation facing her difficult second novel. Already dealing with a crazed stalker and her junkie ex-boyfriend, Bobbi is convinced by her publisher to use new smart editing software and finds herself going head-to-head with an artificial intelligence determined to write her book for her. As the machine manipulates her work to suit its own nefarious ends, Bobbi begins to realize that she is being controlled in ways far more sinister than she suspected. She may, in fact, be a pawn in a conspiracy of social mind control. Too far down the rabbit hole to turn back, Bobbi must keep writing, fighting her own addictions and hallucinations as she rushes to beat her deadline without selling her soul in the process and becoming a cog in a monstrous machine."

          Google’s recent behavior shows the troubling reality of an internet superpower that abandoned its vow to not 'be evil' (GOOGL)      Cache   Translate Page      

google ceo sundar pichai

  • Twice in two days, Google has been shown to be deceptive about matters of public concern, first concerning a security vulnerability and then about the development of a censored search engined for China.
  • The incidents are part of a pattern of behavior by the company where it's been repeatedly secretive, unaccountable, and untrustworthy.
  • The behavior is worrisome and dangerous because of Google's immense power.

Maybe we should have paid closer attention when Google dropped its famous "don't be evil" motto.

The company that has long presented itself as the kinder, gentler, and more ethical tech company has been anything but that lately. Instead, the search giant is looking increasingly like an organization that is striving to do the opposite of its revised motto — "do the right thing."

The latest examples came this week. On Monday, news broke of a bug in the company's Google+ social network that affected an estimated 500,000 people and exposed information that users intended to keep private. Although Google had known about the bug since March, it decided to keep the vulnerability to itself, in part, the Wall Street Journal reported, because it didn't want to raise the ire of regulators.

Then on Tuesday, The Intercept published a transcript of a private meeting between Ben Gomes, who heads up Google's search engine, and a team of company employees in July. Gomes was discussing Google's effort to develop a censored search engine for China, a product that company officials have repeatedly said is just an idea being explored, with no plans for an imminent launch.

But the transcript makes clear that the company hasn't been honest about Dragonfly, the code name for its Chinese search engine effort. Google, according to Gomes remarks, plans to launch the search engine as soon as it can get approval from Chinese officials, possibly as soon as early next year.

The latest incidents are part of a pattern of behavior

Google's decision to hide the security vulnerability and its duplicity about Dragonfly are part of an emerging pattern of behavior from the company. The company and top officials have shown repeatedly recently that they don't feel like they are accountable to anyone and shouldn't be trusted.

Take Dragonfly as an example. The company generated a lot of controversy when it previously operated a search engine in the country, and it made a big public show about standing up for free speech and human rights when it closed that service in 2010.

With the United States and China increasingly at odds over trade, theft of intellectual property, and other matters, any effort to re-launch a Chinese search service would likely be even more controversial today. Regardless, such an effort would be a matter of wide interest — to company employees, shareholders, policy makers, and the public at large — and ought to be subject to broad public discussion.

google employeesBut the company launched and developed its Dragonfly project in secret — not only from the public, but from all but a tiny portion of its workforce — seemingly intentionally in an effort to avoid just such scrutiny. The project only came to light as the result of a leak to the The Intercept.

Something similar happened with Project Maven, Google's effort to develop and offer artificial intelligence technology to the US Defense Department for use in analyzing drone video footage.

As with Dragonfly, Google kept the effort secret, including from many of its workers. Then, when Maven came to light, the company downplayed the effort, saying it was just offering the Defense Department access to the same AI technology it offers other companies and organizations and that the contract was for a relatively nominal amount, some $9 million.

But again, leaked documents showed that to be a lie. The company expected the contract to grow to as much as $250 million, and it was working closely with the Defense Department to customize its technology, according to reports. What's more, Google was planning on doing far more than analyze drone video; it reportedly planned to build a system that could allow the Pentagon to surveil entire cities.

Similar to what happened with the security bug, company officials sought to keep Maven on the down-low, knowing it would be controversial if it ever became public, internal emails show. Indeed, when the effort did become known inside the company, employees raised such an uproar about it that Google eventually canceled its contract with the military.

Google officials have been ducking Congress

But Google's untrustworthy, unaccountable behavior goes well beyond secret projects and hidden security vulnerabilities.

When the US Senate held hearings last month on foreign countries using social media services to influence American elections, Twitter sent CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook sent Sheryl Sandberg, CEO Mark Zuckerberg's top lieutenant. Google, by contrast, declined to send either Google CEO Sundar Pichai or Larry Page, CEO of parent company Alphabet. Top Google officials were also no-shows at related hearings held by Congress last fall.

The empty name tag left for Google's absence at the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence's hearing on election security on September 5, 2018.This despite the fact that Google and its YouTube service were among the prime vehicles that the Russian-linked actors reportedly used to spread propaganda and misinformation during the 2016 election. Pichai has reportedly agreed to finally testify before Congress later this year.

Meanwhile, the European Union has twice in the last two years found that Google illegally thwarted competition, fining it billions of dollars. Instead of agreeing to change its ways, Google in both cases has now appealed the fines.

This kind of behavior would be disturbing if it were coming from a small startup. But the fact that it's coming from one of the world's most powerful corporations makes it incredibly dangerous. Google is a company, after all, that essentially runs a global surveillance system. It collects and holds vast amounts of data on its billions of users.

And it not only knows all about us, but through its dominance of internet search and its outsized role in distributing news, it has a huge amount of control over what we think and know and experience as a society.

We should should be worried about any company having that kind of power. But we should be particularly concerned about Google having that kind of power. Because the company's recent behavior has shown that it's no longer worried about not being evil.

          TPL, Discovery, and CMDB ah-ha moment (Application Lookup)      Cache   Translate Page      

Hi, Everyone!

 

I got to meet Doug Mueller... Engage 2016 gives you access, (BMC CMDB Architect) and Antonio Vargas (BMC Discovery Product Manager). in person recently.  Here is my recent ah-ha moment with CMDB, and Discovery.  I will start with BMC discovery (ADDM) then move to the CMDB topic of service concept.  There is lots confusion out there on the difference of technical and business service should be within the CMDB.  Some of you might say, I knew that years ago!  But, It took me awhile to grabs the concepts even though we used, implemented, and develop the various BMC products.  I am a visual and tactical learner.  I am writing this blog for those type of students.  Diagram 1 explains The Pattern Language (TPL) and how things are discovery

 

Picture 1 explains the discovery concepts and how things are the development by looking for a pattern within a process(s) running on a device.  Once you find that process you write a pattern or use discovery to find that process via TPL. By using the discovered process, you can now create a software instance(s) by the group the process into the software(s).

 

Screen Shot 2017-06-17 at 8.01.21 AM.png

 

Diagram 2 shows the structure of the TPL base on Diagram 1.  Notice the trigger is on a node of node kind base on the condition.  You now see the relationship between the pattern and the TPL.  Once you define the software instances into business application instance(s).  Once BAI is moved into the CMDB CI called BMC.CORE:BMC_Application.  You have to make a logical entry for BMC.CORE:BMC_ApplicationSystem using non-insteance names.  (The Instance name is production, development, and QA environment coming form BMC Discovery.). Base on your application model you create using the pattern that is consumed by CMDB common data model in different ways.  You also need to know that TPL's foundation is in Python.  Those of you are interested in the pattern, machine learning, and Artificial intelligence.  That's another discussion/blog.

 

Let's look at BAI and SI from the discovery with SAAM and predefine SI that becomes part of a larger model like BSM.

 

SAAM's Business Application Instances are consumed by these forms:

  • BMC.CORE:BMC_Application
  • BMC.CORE:BMC_ApplicationSystem

 

Let's look at the CDM for CMDB forms BMC.CORE:BMC_ApplicaitionSystem and BMC.CORE:BMC_Applicaiton.  You have to understand that parent class is BMC.CORE_ApplicationSystem.  The subclasses are BMC.CORE:BMC_Application, BMC.CORE:BMC_ApplicationInfrastructure, BMC.CORE:BMC_SoftwareServer.  (Basics)

 

CI Name
CI ClassDescription
BMC Atrium Discovery and Dependency Mapping Active Directory Proxy 10.1 identified as Active Directory on %hostname%Parent: BMC.CORE:BMC_ApplicationSystemChild:   BMC.CORE:BMC:SoftwareServerThe BMC_SoftwareServer class represents a single piece of software directly running (or otherwise deployed) on a single computer.
manager module on Apache Tomcat Application Server 7.0 listening on 8005, 8080, 8009 on %hostname%Parent:  BMC.CORE:BMC_SystemServiceChild:    BMC.CORE:BMC_ApplicaitonServiceClass that stores information about services that represent low-level modules of an application, for example, the components deployed within an application server. This class has no corresponding DMTF CIM class.
BSM (Business Service Managment is define pattern via TKU of software instance)Parent:  BMC.CORE:BMC_SystemChild: BMC.CORE:BMC_ApplicationSystemChild:   BMC.CORE:BMC_ApplicationThe BMC_Application class represents an instance of an end-user application that supports a particular business function and that can be managed as an independent unit.

 

By understanding the above and what's documented by discovery leaves ITSM team a decision to make between BMC_SoftwareServer or BMC_ApplicationSystem. Why do you have to make a decision is that BMC discovery sync with both of these CI? (BMC did not make the decision for you.) To understand why, let's review and understand model: FACTS:

  • ApplicationSystem is parent CI.
  • SoftwareServer is child CI of ApplicationSystem.
  • BMC Sync the Business Application instance into BMC_Application CI which is Child CI for ApplicationSystem out of the box.  (OOTB)

 

To be continue.... It is not comsume by the follwing forms:

  • BMC.CORE:BMC_SystemSoftware
  • BMC.CORE:BMC_ApplicationInfrastructure
  • BMC.CORE:BMC_SystemService

 

The way I'd understood @Doug Muller:  There is no direct relationship between business and technical services that relate(s) into BMC.CORE:BMC_ApplicationSystem.  These definitions can be defined by how your business generate revenue with a business service. (If your company makes cars.  Any system that supports selling cars is tied to business services.). Technical services are defined supporting of business service(s).  You can define the technical services without a business service(s).  These are logoical break down of your services based on your organization. 

 

The confusion comes from the type of business your company is providing to its customers and way BMC represents examples of technical vs business service(s). BMC is a company that sells software so a lot of the business services sounds like technical services but, it is not a technical service(s).  Becuase those services help generate revenue for BMC software. 

 

Let's review Why CMDB & Discovery project fail.

 

CMDBDiscovery
Suggestions
Project ScopeThe scope of these projects starts out has let's map the services but, the reality is that there are lots of scope creeps.  The value creation is loose scoped based on my experience.  The value creation for CMDB needs to understand and measure for each ORG.Discovery covers the automation of discovering IT infrastructure at the data center level but, does not cover end to end communications at the network level.  Mapping of BAI isn't scoped right.  BMC has recognized this issue by adding manage service to map application in CMDB.To realize and reduce the education need to use the CMDB.  We need a quick application lookup solution until the whole CMDB and discovery project in completed in scope.
Project ConstraintsHuman Resource, Knowledge Base, Wisdom Base, and Where to start the value creation for an ORG.There isn't a good way to resolving and track Access issue release in a large enterprise environment.

 

Draft thoughts: Service Modeling brain Dump Service Modeling Best Practices comparable CDM fieldsIf you want to learn discovery in detail and how you can answer debated question.  Please start here:  ADDM Support Guide When you create an application mapping in discovery.  You have to create dev, qa, and production instance that sync's into CMDB.  Those instance has to be grouped into relationships and parent class.  The Parent CI is ApplicationSystem use impact relationship to BMC.CORE:BMC_ConcreteCollection CI is used for tore a generic and instantiable collection, such as a pool of hosts available for running jobs. This class is defined as a concrete subclass of BMC_Collection and was added rather than changing BMC_Collection from an abstract class to a concrete class. I'd often get questions about how does discovery provided value to application owners vs management.   Here are some key thoughts about the value the discovery delivers. System Administrator & IT Architecture Value

  • Ability to produce a DR plan with discovery data
  • Ability to understand the impact of shared applications and Infrastructure
  • Provided a common understanding of the Business Application Instances for the company
  • Ability to produce up to date diagram of your application
  • Reduce work production current infrastructure diagrams and inventory for management

Management & C-Suite Value

  • Ability to the audit process, people, data, and tools
    • For Example:  If plan datacenter has 50 hosts to be create but, discovery find 100.
      • Management can ask a question about how the other 50 was created and who is paying for them
  • Understand Share Impact and risk management of applications
  • Ability to the budget datacenter or cloud moves

FDA Clears Magnetom Sola 1.5T MRI From Siemens Healthineers

October 9, 2018 — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared the Magnetom Sola, a 1.5 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner from Siemens Healthineers that brings Siemens’ BioMatrix technology to the 1.5T market. This technology addresses patient anatomical and physiological differences, as well as differences in how users set up and conduct MRI exams, to increase productivity and decrease rescans for improved efficiency and patient satisfaction.

The Magnetom Sola helps healthcare providers perform a full range of routine and complex MRI exams while accelerating workflow and delivering consistent results across all patient types. BioMatrix Sensors save setup time and inform the correct exam strategy. Respiratory Sensors in the patient table eliminate the need for navigators with respiratory-triggered sequences. A new Kinetic Sensor, an in-bore camera system, enables technologists to visually monitor the patient’s face. BioMatrix Tuners improve the quality and reproducibility of head, neck and spine imaging using distortion-mitigating software and hardware. BioMatrix Interfaces utilize artificial intelligence (AI) and body models to expedite patient positioning and deliver consistent, reproducible results.

The scanner architecture offers extremely high performance in an open, 70-cm bore. Larger body regions can be covered in one step with a full 50x50x50 cm field of view. Ultra-lightweight, anatomy-adaptive coils improve patient comfort while delivering high signal-to-noise ratio with up to 204 RF channels.

New software enables faster scanning to benefit patients and the facility. Multi-Slice TSE reduces routine musculoskeletal scan times by up to 46 percent. Compressed Sensing not only makes cardiac and dynamic liver exams faster, but also enables imaging of patients who cannot reliably hold their breath.

Combined with Dot workflow engines and Tim 4G technology, the software accelerates scanning from positioning to post-processing with continual quality control of image data. The result is increased productivity and consistency across patients and exams.

A cardiovascular edition of the Magnetom Sola – which includes high-performance hardware and software such as Compressed Sensing Cardiac Cine, MyoMaps and the Cardiac Dot engine – is also available.

          Driving identity security in banking using biometric identification      Cache   Translate Page      

Combining biometric identification with artificial intelligence (AI) enables banks to take a new approach to verifying the digital identity of their prospects and customers. Biometrics is the process by which a person’s unique physical and personal traits are detected and recorded by an electronic device or system as a means of confirm identity. Biometric identifiers are unique to individuals, so they are more reliable in confirming identity than token and knowledge-based methods, such as identity cards and passwords. Biometric identifiers are often categorized as physiological identifiers that are related to a person’s physicality and include fingerprint recognition, hand geometry, odor/scent, iris scans, DNA, palmprint, and facial recognition.

image

But how do you ensure the effectiveness of identifying a customer when they are not physically in the presence of the bank employee? As the world of banking continues to go digital, our identity is becoming the key to accessing these services. Regulators require banks to verify that users are who they say they are, not bad actors like fraudsters or known money launderers. And verifying identities online without seeing the person face to face is one of the biggest challenges online and mobile services face today.

It’s problematic because identity documents were created to be verified in person. For example, you can shine an infrared light, you can feel the texture, or you can see if a photo has been stuck on. But with remote verification, you’re just dealing with an image. Without the physical artifact, you only have the human eye to rely on and this makes the task of verification much harder to do quickly, or accurately.

A complicating factor is the online user experience. Users expect a fast, frictionless process in all that they do. If they have to wait, or if the process is too fiddly, they’ll go elsewhere. In the banking sector, almost half of all people who start opening an online bank account drop off due to a bad user experience.

This is where identity assurance is needed for online and mobile onboarding processes. Identity assurance is the ability for the bank to determine, with a high level of certainty, that an electronically provided credential representing a person can be trusted to serve as a proxy for that individual and not someone else. Assurance levels (ALs) are levels of trust associated with a credential as measured by the supporting technology, processes, procedures, policies, and operational practices.

To facilitate the assurance part of the customer onboarding process, the bank must have an innovative identity verification technology (IVT) to ensure that customers provide information that is associated with the identity of a real person. Physical authenticity identity documents like passports, drivers permits, and other documents are used to compare against government or service databases. Fraudsters continually strive to debunk bank processes to perform account takeovers, system infiltrations, and unauthorized transactions. Fraud detection is tough! In many cases it’s easy to alter content, images, and verification digits of common identification resources.

To combat these methods, Microsoft has many partners leveraging our Azure Cognitive Services – Vision API Platform and Azure Machine Learning. One such partner Onfido, provides a multi-factor identity verification service that helps accurately verify online users, uses a cloud-based risk assessment platform that leverages artificial intelligence to automate and scale traditionally human-based fraud expertise to derive identity assurance. The Onfido service validates physical identity documents (document validation), verifies biometric inputs (biometric identity verification), and analyzes information an end user provides about themselves (ID validation). These techniques give companies a measurable assurance that the person is who they say they are.

Biometric identity verification

Onfido verifies identities through two factor verification:

  • Something you have, such as a government issued ID (driver’s license, passport or ID card).
    • Document validation answers this question. Is it authentic?
  • Something you are, such as your facial biometrics.
    • Feature and attribute validation answers these questions. Is there a match, and are they alive?
  • Biometric identity is quite robust, an identity document is the most legally binding proof of identity, while remaining user friendly. The face is the easiest biometric to capture using mobile devices.
    • In figure below, the first step is to verify that a document is genuine. Onfido has several different algorithms to test for different fraud techniques.
    • The second step is to match the photo on the document with the selfie taken by the customer. Rather than take a static selfie, customers can also choose a video option which asks the user to perform randomised movements such as turning their head and voice commands. This prevents using deceitful practices, impersonation, or spoofing attempts.

          Making HIPAA and HITRUST compliance easier      Cache   Translate Page      

Many healthcare organizations are starting to adopt artificial intelligence (AI) systems to gain deeper insight into operations, patient care, diagnostic imaging, cost savings and so on. However, it can sometimes be daunting to even know where to get started. Many times, you need a clear lighted path to start your journey and embrace AI and machine learning (ML) capabilities rapidly.

image

One method is using an Azure Healthcare AI blueprint. It’s a shortcut to using Microsoft Azure at low cost and without deep knowledge of cloud computing. Blueprints include resources such as example code, test data, security, and compliance support. The largest advantage of using a blueprint is explicit advice and clear instructions on keeping your solution in compliance. We’re trying to eliminate the mystery, so you don’t have to research it yourself.

Three core areas where the blueprint can help with compliance are cloud provider and client responsibilities, security threats, and regulatory compliance. These three areas can get overlooked at the beginning of any technology project, yet they are important parts of creating healthcare systems. Applying formal discipline to these areas is made easier by using the blueprint to create an AI/ML experiment installation.

Helpful artifacts

The blueprint includes a script to create an AI/ML system, complete with a sample experiment. It also includes several documents to help system implementers keep their installations secure and compliant. These include worksheets, whitepapers, and spreadsheets that will help you ensure system compliance with healthcare regulations and certifications. The artifacts are easily re-purposed for other healthcare-based systems implemented on Azure.

Clarifying responsibilities

When creating any system on a cloud platform, there are two possible owners for any part of the solution, the cloud provider and the customer. It is important to know who is responsible for specific actions, services, and other operational details. Without a clear understanding of this delineation, customers or vendors may find themselves in a difficult situation if an issue arises, like service outages or security breaches. Therefore, it is in everyone’s interest to be clear about the responsibilities of design and operations.

Preventing misunderstandings and setting clear expectations of responsibilities is the goal of the Shared Responsibilities for Cloud Computing document. If you are trying to meet HITRUST certification standards, the HITRUST Customer Responsibilities Matrix spreadsheet identifies exactly what Microsoft and the customer are respectively responsible for managing.

Planning for security threats

Before creating complex systems, it is always advisable to perform a threat assessment. It is a best practice to create a threat assessment model. It helps you to visualize the system and find the points of vulnerability in the proposed architecture. This leads to conversations about where the system may be improved and hardened against attacks.

Microsoft provides a Threat Model Tool enabling architects to identify and mitigate potential security issues early, when they are relatively easy and cost-effective to resolve. The blueprint includes a model to be used with the tool. This comprehensive threat model provides insights into the potential risks of the architecture and how they may be mitigated.

A standard approach to security threat analysis involves identifying the surface area of your system, creating a model of that surface area, identifying potential threats, mitigating them and validating each mitigation, updating the threat model as you proceed. The following diagram highlights the major phases this process.

The figure below shows four stages: diagram, identify, mitigate, and validate.

image

Figure 1: Security cycle

This process flow provides an iterative and collaborative approach to threat analysis that ultimately helps create a more robust and secure system architecture.

Regulatory compliance

Healthcare systems need to meet regulatory compliance standards. At installation, the blueprint complies with HIPAA and HITRUST requirements. Whitepapers are included to help you understand how to continue to meet these requirements. Let’s examine the whitepapers and other provided artifacts to see how they might help.

HITRUST certification

The Common Security Framework (CSF) from HITRUST is a security standard for healthcare systems. The HITRUST compliance review whitepaper was published to aid in ensuring the healthcare blueprint meets CSF regulations. The whitepaper states:

“This whitepaper constitutes a review of the Blueprint architecture and functionality with respect to HITRUST-certified customer environments, examining how specifically it can satisfy HITRUST CSF security requirements.”

The whitepaper helps organizations plan their cloud implementation and understand how to meet HITRUST CSF compliance.

HIPAA compliance built into the blueprint

Compliance with HIPAA standards is fundamental to any healthcare organization. The blueprint was created with HIPAA in mind, and includes a whitepaper covering the topic in detail.

The HIPAA compliance review whitepaper is similar to the HITRUST whitepaper in its intent, to help organizations reach regulatory compliance. This document guides readers through the architecture, a shared responsibility model and deployment considerations for your solution. Protected healthcare information (PHI), a fundamental practice in well-designed system architectures, is also included in the whitepaper.

Recommended next steps

Use the supporting collateral below to prepare for your installation of the blueprint. The artifacts demonstrate how responsibilities, compliance, and security are established and how you can maintain them going forward.

Prepare for installation and ongoing maintenance with the following documents.

My Personal Assistant is a dolphin

I print an A3 version of the main board to fit the table so 3 credits cards are disposal in different way but on the rule manual you can se how the correct setup should be, in solo-play Government Cards are not used
I'm blue and dummy player action tiles are black plus 1 purple
(I made an error

Let's GO!


I choose this 3 cards from 6 at beginning of Era1

In solo play if you don't improve your position on the Federation Track, the next round happen that a 4th space is occupied by dummy player action tiles (I choose the purple one and place near the federation track to remember me of this rule ). So I choose to keep the last 3 card that you can see above.1

So what to do first?

R1A1) I want to reclaim BUILD STRUCTURE so I play that on a green slot, and choose green 3, improve your position on the federation track 2 spaces) so I can obtain 1 credit.


R1A2) Then I play Lobbying Office (from my initial hand, see above) on red 2 slot, so I can activate build structure and gain 1 steelplast from the Federation Track.
I choose to build a tunnel with the Action Card, and a second tunnel with the red slot abilities, and LOBBYING OFFICE make me improve my position again on the federation track and gain 1 VP. Hurray!


Also gain 1 kelp building the second tunnel


These are my cards in hand now, for my last action I want to use Smuggling because I need credits
To build Desalinization Implants. I don't want to make a Desalinization Plants All-In strategy
Despite the special card that provides victory points for improved desalination plants is inviting
I only need to be sure to have enough credits produced in the first era production phase.


R3A3) As last action for the first round so I play Smuggling on yellow3 to gain also 2 science


Talking about Special Cards I think will go for Lab Science Federal Priority and Trade Surplus Steelplast.


End of Round I reset my position on the Federation Track, and I move all dummy action tiles from 1 position clockwise

Round2


R2A1) Black Ops Team on green1 to build 2 yellow buildings

R2A2) Black Ops Team on yellow1 to activate personal assistant and gain 1 steelplast plus 1steelplast and 1 science


R2A3) Smuggling on Red1 so I can draw 1 more card because of black ops team cards with infinity icon and build 2 labs



Round3

Have to discard 1 card. I need Scavenge the Seafloor because I need steelplast to build 1 city
So I keep autonomous systems, Scavenge the Seafloor, biomech construction crew.

I want to connect blue metropolitan that give me 3 kelp so for the first maintenance I'm good with kelp quantity

You will see how the game is a continuous make choices on which cards hold to have the resources needed for the actions on the Board. It's limitating
When you play you have to have focus and a very clear idea of what you want to Achieve.


Have the penalty to not move my marker on the federation track this round so have to place a 4th action tiles from the dummy player,
The fate wanted it to be just the action I needed, damn it
Will wait till next round


R3A1) Scavenge the seafloor on green3



R3A2) Smuggling on yellow1 to activate scavenge (and draw 1 card) and get so 2 steelplast and 2 kelps

I like artificial intelligence that make me upgrade 2 structures for 2 science instead of 3 (iconography is wrong, already corrected with the retail version)




R3A3) keep artificial, green and yellow biomech. Play biomech yellow on yellow 4 to build a city and 1 lab


Round4

R4A1) I play Biomech construction crew on green3


R4A2) Survey on Red2 to build a tunnel for the metropolis and build 1 kelp farm on the first city




R4A3) keep Trial Run and play it on yellow3. pay 3 science to upgrade yellows and 1 tunnel
(so I gain 1 steelplast and 1 credit from biomech construction crews)

usually if a card is in hand for a long time we made a wrong decision
I have to play artificial intelligence and autonomous systems. But now personnel agency is very interesting for a discount of 1 credit when play a Special Card. Host a conference make me upgrade a tunnel for 1 credit that I take back from biomech crew it's interesting too
I discard Autonomous systems…

Production Time! Number 1.


1 green, 2 upgraded yellows, 3 basic white, 1 tunnel and 1 upgraded tunnel
The leftmost tunnel do not produce
For a total of 2 kelps, 5 credits, 3 science, 1VP, 2 red biometter
I don't have production cards, no metropolitan that produce.
Pay 2 kelps for maintenance

For my game experience this is not a good production not have so much resources but let's see what's next.



Second Era

I take 3 cards from second era pile and have to discard 3 from my hand
Tough decision

I keep black market, personnel agency and artificial intelligence


Round5

R5A1) Now good time to play artificial intelligence on green2 to build a symbiotic city

R5A2) Black Market on yellow3 to upgrade 3 science lab, I need steelplast to build tunnels!



R5A3) motivation speech on Red2. so I can Activate Action Card Build Structure and improve federation track of 1
And build 2 tunnels, one is supercharge 1 kelp and 1 biomatter for a 3 times bonus production


Cards involved in this simple action a lot!



Round6


R6A1) discard construction windfall. Play personnel agency on green4. Upgrade a tunnel.
Black ops teams involved, see player board above.

A lot of new cards involved

Keep organize a conference, consumer goods research and visit investors, so I have 3 cards with 3 different colours


R6A2) Organize a conference on yellow4. to build a city and 1 kelp farm



R6A3) play Consumer Goods Research on yellow1, so I can activate organize a conference
Convert a science in steelplast with black market and get 1 steelplast and 1 science
No Federation Track improved this round



Round 7



Discard smuggling
Now I would like to improve 3 structures, at cost of 2 science because of artificial intelligence,
But only greens cards and with a second thought I already have all buildings upgraded except one farm.
I don't need to upgrade tunnels for victory points, better to focus on build to gain resources now.
Also I need 1 more kelp for maintenance. For now I play..

R7A1) Visit Investors on green4, to improve 1 tunnel (and get resources from biomech crews), draw2 cards.
But most important I already have 4 Action Cards so I decide to discard Scavenge The Seafloor
(and activate it while discard it)



R7A2) keep survey, rush job and construction windfall. Play survey on green3 to build a lab


R7A3)construction windfall on red1 to build a farm for free, 2 labs


Production Number 2!



4 kelp, 10 credits, 2 biomatter, 4 steelplast, 6 science, 10VP
I don't have production cards, no metropolitan that produce.
Pay 4 kelps for maintenance


Third Era


Three third era card

OUCH, I just realized that Special Card Space is 1 and I have to take 2 Special Cards,
My plane was to make a Lab and steelplast combo. I think I'm going to lose….
Next round dummy player will occupied that action space, so repeatable mission could be useful

OUCH OUCH my objective was to build 7 cities, till now I can't tell if I will accomplish it or not completely miss it …..
Too focused on writing and taking pictures for this session


Round 8



R8A1) I keep repeatable mission, smuggling and corruption
I play corruption on red4 to take federal priority science labs
(basically I transform 1 biomatter into 1 credit and 1 steelplast)


Discard coral tunnels I need smuggling for kelp to build cities

R8A2) play federal priority on green 2


R8A3) I play trial run on green 4 to draw 2 cards and upgrade a farm


Round 9

I keep repeatable mission, smuggling, federal grant.
With federal grant will build a symbiotic city, with smuggling a non-simbiotic one.
I choose the symbiotic also I already own a kelp



R9A1) I play federal grant on yellow3 to upgrade 3 labs



R9A2) I play technology negotiation on yellow2, apply effect from both biomech crews cards




R9A3) play repeatable mission on red2, to copy red4. apply several effects cards to build 2 tunnels (see down here)

this way the Federation Track is involved and will have no fourth action occupied, good.


Round10


Recap: All action cards

https://bgg.cc/image/4346425/uttermarcus
This is tricky. I have only 7 credits and need 7 to build a city, so I cannot play trade surplus
But first I need to play demonstration to activate 2 Action cards that give me 3 credits.
So I discard technology negotiation, that was a good card but have to stay on focus.

R10A1) Play demonstration on green2 to build a symbiotic city surcharge of 5 credits! For 5 VP.

But first I pay 1 credit to activate personal assistant and visit investors that give me a total of 3 credits.


OUCH I have no money to play Trade Surplus because I have to build the 7th city! Noooooooooooooo
Keep breath keep breath.


Nooo I don-t have even a third steelplast.
So now I need 1 steelplast or 1 credit


Let-s see…
So I can use Biomech construction Crew that give me 1 credit when I upgrade a tunnel. Let-s do it.


R10A2) play trade surplus on green4, pay 2 credits for the card and 1 science to upgrade a tunnel
So I receive 1 credit, 1 steelplast and my last action will be building the last city!




R10A3) I play Biomech Test on yellow1 to activate Organize A Conference action card
for improve a farm with 1 science . Also get a kelp and 1 steelplast from the action spazio




Sooo good. I-m not an expert, did only 8 plays but this was intense


Production number 3


Farms: 4 kelp and 4 VP; Desalinization plants: 3 credits and 2 biomatter ;
Science Lab: 8 steelplast and 6 science ; Tunnels: 10 credits and 7 VP
Symbiotic Cities: 8 VP ; Player board production: 1kelp
I don't have production cards, no metropolitan that produce.
Pay 6 kelps and 1 biomatter for maintenance
Total VP: 19VP


Final Score
I'm on 36VP on the Points Track


Metropolitan: 7 VP ; Cities: 22 VP ;

Score Cards: 6 labs = 12VP ; 9steelplast = 9 VP

Total credits included resources: 22credits = 5VP

Total ….. 36 + 29 + 21 + 5 = 91 NOOOOOOOO miss the goal for 9 points.
What a pity. But now I have an excuses to do another play


It's all about cards
The cards are balanced, they are many, they are beautiful, they come at the right time and I want to keep them all.
But I have to make choices, I can never have more than three in hand
Also I didn't touch the 1/2 credits cards, have no time!


It is limiting not being able to describe the whole process of thoughts while playing,
Hope you enjoy this, thank you for reading.

a black bar with the word RESIST in white text

One of the difficulties in resisting the Trump administration, the Republican Congressional majority, and Republican state legislatures (plus the occasional non-Republican who obliges us to resist their nonsense, too, like we don't have enough to worry about) is keeping on top of the sheer number of horrors, indignities, and normalization of the aggressively abnormal that they unleash every single day.

So here is a daily thread for all of us to share all the things that are going on, thus crowdsourcing a daily compendium of the onslaught of conservative erosion of our rights and our very democracy.

Stay engaged. Stay vigilant. Resist.

* * *

Earlier today by me: The Lives of Women and Nikki Haley Has Resigned and Trump's War on Immigrants: The Latest. Also, ICYMI late yesterday: "This is going to be very contentious and no one really knows how it is all going to shake out."

Here are some more things in the news today...

[Content Note: Rape culture] Andy Towle at Towleroad: Trump Apologizes to Brett Kavanaugh for His 'Pain and Suffering', Declares Him 'Proven Innocent'. "Donald Trump apologized to alleged rapist Brett Kavanaugh before his ceremonial swearing in at the White House on Monday night... Said Trump: 'On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure. Those who step forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation, not a campaign of personal and political destruction based on lies and deception. What happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency, and due process. In our country, a man or a woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty. And with that, I must state that you, sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent.'"

Mick Krever and Devan Cole at CNN: Clinton Says Trump Remarks at Kavanaugh Swearing-In Undermine Supreme Court.
Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that [Donald] Trump staged a "political rally" at Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's ceremonial swearing-in that "further undermined the image and integrity of the court."

"What was done last night in the White House was a political rally. It further undermined the image and integrity of the court," Clinton, Trump's Democratic 2016 election opponent, told CNN's Christiane Amanpour in an exclusive interview.

"And that troubles me greatly. It saddens me. Because our judicial system has been viewed as one of the main pillars of our constitutional government. So I don't know how people are going to react to it. I think, given our divides, it will pretty much fall predictably between those who are for and those who are against," Clinton said.

"But the President's been true to form," she continued. "He has insulted, attacked, demeaned women throughout the campaign — really for many years leading up to the campaign. And he's continued to do that inside the White House."
Thank Maude for her. I'm so grateful to her for saying that.

Especially when Republican men are out here saying shit like this:


And this: Justin Wise at the Hill: McConnell: GOP Senators Were 'Literally Under Assault' in Days Before Kavanaugh Vote. "'I couldn’t be prouder of the Senate Republican Conference. We were standing up for the presumption of innocence in this country …And secondly, we were literally under assault,' McConnell said at a press conference in Kentucky. 'These demonstrators, I'm sure some of them were well-meaning citizens. But many of them were obviously trying to get in our faces, to go to our homes. Basically almost attack us in the halls of the capitol. There was a full-scale effort to intimidate.'" FUCKKKKKKKKK YOUUUUUUUUUU.

Speaking of Mitch McConnell being FUCKING TERRIBLE... [CN: Video may autoplay at link] Paul Begala at CNN: McConnell Has Done Grave Damage to All Three Branches of Government. "Richard Nixon damaged the presidency, Newt Gingrich turned the House of Representatives into a mixed martial arts arena, and Roger Taney forever stained the Supreme Court with the Dred Scott decision. But it takes someone special, someone rare, someone spectacularly Machiavellian and malevolent, to screw up all three branches of government. Ladies and gentlemen: Mitch McConnell. The soft-spoken Kentuckian has, in just a few short years, done lasting damage to the presidency, the Senate, and the Supreme Court: the hat trick of democracy destruction."

Josh Israel at ThinkProgress: 'Balanced-Budget' Republicans Vote to Add a Half Trillion to the Deficit with New Tax Cut Bill. "As the nation watched the Senate Judiciary Committee meet to consider whether to rush through the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, the House Republican majority was quietly passing the Protecting Family and Small Business Tax Cuts Act of 2018 — a bill to make the Trump tax cuts for the rich permanent. According to the GOP-controlled Joint Committee on Taxation and the Congressional Budget Office, the bill would add another $545 billion to the federal budget deficit over the next decade. This would be on top of the trillions already added to the debt by the original tax bill and the omnibus budget signed by Trump earlier this year."

Paul A. Eisenstein at NBC News: Trump's Tariffs Have Already Cost Ford $1B; Now It's Planning Layoffs. "Ford will be making cuts to its 70,000-strong white-collar workforce in a move it calls a 'redesign' of its staff to be leaner, have fewer layers, and offer more decision-making power to employees, the company announced. ...Ford has already warned that [Donald] Trump's auto tariffs have impacted the company to the tune of $1 billion, and the president's trade policies threaten to play havoc with Ford's ongoing reorganization."

Noah Smith at the Guardian: America's First Robot Farm Replaces Humans with 'Incredibly Intelligent' Machines. "America's first autonomous robot farm launched last week, in the hopes that artificial intelligence (AI) can remake an industry facing a serious labor shortage and pressure to produce more crops. Claiming an ability to 'grow 30 times more produce than traditional farms' on the strength of AI software, year-round, soilless hydroponic processes, and moving plants as they grow to efficiently use space, the San Carlos, California-based company Iron Ox aims to address some of the agricultural industry's biggest challenges. Such challenges have also caught the attention of investors, who made more than $10bn in investments last year, representing a 29% increase from 2016."

Tim Johnson at McClatchy: Are Wireless Voting Machines Vulnerable? Florida, Other States Say They're Safe Enough. (Oh, that's exactly what you want to hear about voting machines. They're SAFE ENOUGH.) "Barely a month before midterm elections, voting integrity advocates and electronic voting experts want the federal government to issue an official warning to states that use voting machines with integrated cellular modems that the machines are vulnerable to hacks, potentially interfering with the ballot counting. Once seen as a useful tool to provide quick election results, voting machines with cellular modems are now subject to fierce debate over how easy it would be to break into them and change the results. Such machines are certified for use in Florida, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin."

Julia Carrie Wong and Olivia Solon at the Guardian: Google to Shut Down Google+ After Failing to Disclose User Data Breach.
This March, as Facebook was coming under global scrutiny over the harvesting of personal data for Cambridge Analytica, Google discovered a skeleton in its own closet: A bug in the API for Google+ had been allowing third-party app developers to access the data not just of users who had granted permission, but of their friends.

If that sounds familiar, it's because it's almost exactly the scenario that got Mark Zuckerberg dragged in front of the U.S. Congress. The parallel was not lost on Google, and the company chose not to disclose the data leak, the Wall Street Journal revealed Monday, in order to avoid the public relations headache and potential regulatory enforcement.

Disclosure will likely result "in us coming into the spotlight alongside or even instead of Facebook despite having stayed under the radar throughout the Cambridge Analytica scandal," Google policy and legal officials wrote in a memo obtained by the Journal. It "almost guarantees Sundar will testify before Congress," the memo said, referring to the company's CEO, Sundar Pichai. The disclosure would also invite "immediate regulatory interest."

Shortly after the story was published, Google announced that it will shut down consumer access to Google+ and improve privacy protections for third-party applications.
Welp.

Laura Geggel at LiveScience: Huge Iceberg Poised to Break Off Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier. "A newly discovered long and craggy rift is splintering across West Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier, satellite images show. The nearly 19-mile-long (30 kilometers) rift started in the middle of the ice shelf, where the ice shelf touches warmer ocean waters that are melting it from underneath, said Stef Lhermitte, an assistant professor in the Department of Geoscience and Remote Sensing at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. The rift only has about another 6 miles (10 km) to go before one or more icebergs calf, breaking off from the glacier, Lhermitte said."

Staff at the Weather Channel: Hurricane Michael Intensifies to Category 2; May Be Florida Panhandle's Strongest Landfall in 13 Years Wednesday. "Hurricane Michael has strengthened to Category 2 intensity, and is forecast to strike the Florida Panhandle at least as strong as a Category 3 with dangerous storm surge flooding, destructive winds, and flooding rainfall. Michael will also bring heavy rain and strong winds to other parts of the southeastern United States after it moves inland. 'Michael could develop into a potentially catastrophic event for the northeastern Gulf Coast,' the National Weather Service office in Tallahassee, Florida, wrote in its area forecast discussion Monday afternoon."

          Google’s recent behavior shows the troubling reality of an internet superpower that abandoned its vow to not 'be evil' (GOOGL)      Cache   Translate Page      

google ceo sundar pichai

  • Twice in two days, Google has been shown to be deceptive about matters of public concern, first concerning a security vulnerability and then about the development of a censored search engined for China.
  • The incidents are part of a pattern of behavior by the company where it's been repeatedly secretive, unaccountable, and untrustworthy.
  • The behavior is worrisome and dangerous because of Google's immense power.

Maybe we should have paid closer attention when Google dropped its famous "don't be evil" motto.

The company that has long presented itself as the kinder, gentler, and more ethical tech company has been anything but that lately. Instead, the search giant is looking increasingly like an organization that is striving to do the opposite of its revised motto — "do the right thing."

The latest examples came this week. On Monday, news broke of a bug in the company's Google+ social network that affected an estimated 500,000 people and exposed information that users intended to keep private. Although Google had known about the bug since March, it decided to keep the vulnerability to itself, in part, the Wall Street Journal reported, because it didn't want to raise the ire of regulators.

Then on Tuesday, The Intercept published a transcript of a private meeting between Ben Gomes, who heads up Google's search engine, and a team of company employees in July. Gomes was discussing Google's effort to develop a censored search engine for China, a product that company officials have repeatedly said is just an idea being explored, with no plans for an imminent launch.

But the transcript makes clear that the company hasn't been honest about Dragonfly, the code name for its Chinese search engine effort. Google, according to Gomes remarks, plans to launch the search engine as soon as it can get approval from Chinese officials, possibly as soon as early next year.

The latest incidents are part of a pattern of behavior

Google's decision to hide the security vulnerability and its duplicity about Dragonfly are part of an emerging pattern of behavior from the company. The company and top officials have shown repeatedly recently that they don't feel like they are accountable to anyone and shouldn't be trusted.

Take Dragonfly as an example. The company generated a lot of controversy when it previously operated a search engine in the country, and it made a big public show about standing up for free speech and human rights when it closed that service in 2010.

With the United States and China increasingly at odds over trade, theft of intellectual property, and other matters, any effort to re-launch a Chinese search service would likely be even more controversial today. Regardless, such an effort would be a matter of wide interest — to company employees, shareholders, policy makers, and the public at large — and ought to be subject to broad public discussion.

google employeesBut the company launched and developed its Dragonfly project in secret — not only from the public, but from all but a tiny portion of its workforce — seemingly intentionally in an effort to avoid just such scrutiny. The project only came to light as the result of a leak to the The Intercept.

Something similar happened with Project Maven, Google's effort to develop and offer artificial intelligence technology to the US Defense Department for use in analyzing drone video footage.

As with Dragonfly, Google kept the effort secret, including from many of its workers. Then, when Maven came to light, the company downplayed the effort, saying it was just offering the Defense Department access to the same AI technology it offers other companies and organizations and that the contract was for a relatively nominal amount, some $9 million.

But again, leaked documents showed that to be a lie. The company expected the contract to grow to as much as $250 million, and it was working closely with the Defense Department to customize its technology, according to reports. What's more, Google was planning on doing far more than analyze drone video; it reportedly planned to build a system that could allow the Pentagon to surveil entire cities.

Similar to what happened with the security bug, company officials sought to keep Maven on the down-low, knowing it would be controversial if it ever became public, internal emails show. Indeed, when the effort did become known inside the company, employees raised such an uproar about it that Google eventually canceled its contract with the military.

Google officials have been ducking Congress

But Google's untrustworthy, unaccountable behavior goes well beyond secret projects and hidden security vulnerabilities.

When the US Senate held hearings last month on foreign countries using social media services to influence American elections, Twitter sent CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook sent Sheryl Sandberg, CEO Mark Zuckerberg's top lieutenant. Google, by contrast, declined to send either Google CEO Sundar Pichai or Larry Page, CEO of parent company Alphabet. Top Google officials were also no-shows at related hearings held by Congress last fall.

The empty name tag left for Google's absence at the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence's hearing on election security on September 5, 2018.This despite the fact that Google and its YouTube service were among the prime vehicles that the Russian-linked actors reportedly used to spread propaganda and misinformation during the 2016 election. Pichai has reportedly agreed to finally testify before Congress later this year.

Meanwhile, the European Union has twice in the last two years found that Google illegally thwarted competition, fining it billions of dollars. Instead of agreeing to change its ways, Google in both cases has now appealed the fines.

This kind of behavior would be disturbing if it were coming from a small startup. But the fact that it's coming from one of the world's most powerful corporations makes it incredibly dangerous. Google is a company, after all, that essentially runs a global surveillance system. It collects and holds vast amounts of data on its billions of users.

And it not only knows all about us, but through its dominance of internet search and its outsized role in distributing news, it has a huge amount of control over what we think and know and experience as a society.

We should should be worried about any company having that kind of power. But we should be particularly concerned about Google having that kind of power. Because the company's recent behavior has shown that it's no longer worried about not being evil.

          Comment on President Trump to hold MAGA rally in Pennsylvania Wednesday by Douglas John bobb      Cache   Translate Page      
A program within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence had technology that could have determined that possibly 100% of US Senators secretly believed that the Honorable Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh was being honest in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings and that Christine Ford was not truthful, is based on interpersonal trust, neurophysiology, behavioral science, advanced data analytics and social science. That program: Tools for Recognizing Unconscious Signals of Trustworthiness (TRUST) https://www.iarpa.gov/index.php/working-with-iarpa/requests-for-information/tools-for-recognizing-unconscious-signals-of-trustworthiness-trust has been terminated and replaced with a new program: Tools for Recognizing Useful Signals of Trustworthiness (TRUST) https://www.iarpa.gov/index.php/working-with-iarpa/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=104&Itemid=195 After the nonstop critic of the Trump administration, Obama's CIA director John Brennan had his security clearance taken away, Fox news then broadcast that he was a communist in the 1970's. Judge Jeanine Pirro said on Fox news that the left that was so critical of President Trump was anti-capitalist. Therefore I decided to take a look at the website of the American Communist Party and was shocked that it contained exactly the same messages, themes, and positions as that of the Democratic Party, leading me to believe that while the Democratic Party was obsessed with being anti-President Trump, the American Communist Party seized control over the Democratic Party messaging of their viewpoints. Science, as an enabler of truth, in this age of quantum artificial intelligence, is rapidly making the conventional lawyers and politicians "tools and tricks of deception and schemes" obsolete. In this 21st century America, even wily political "correctness" will soon have to give way to the businesslike disruptive innovation of the promises made and promises kept and within promised deadlines and promised due dates. Finally, in spite of calls by Democrats in Congress, there will be no abolition of ICE. US Marshals are inextricably intertwined with ICE under the Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System (JPATS).

          Google’s recent behavior shows the troubling reality of an internet superpower that abandoned its vow to not 'be evil' (GOOGL)      Cache   Translate Page      

google ceo sundar pichai

  • Twice in two days, Google has been shown to be deceptive about matters of public concern, first concerning a security vulnerability and then about the development of a censored search engined for China.
  • The incidents are part of a pattern of behavior by the company where it's been repeatedly secretive, unaccountable, and untrustworthy.
  • The behavior is worrisome and dangerous because of Google's immense power.

Maybe we should have paid closer attention when Google dropped its famous "don't be evil" motto.

The company that has long presented itself as the kinder, gentler, and more ethical tech company has been anything but that lately. Instead, the search giant is looking increasingly like an organization that is striving to do the opposite of its revised motto — "do the right thing."

The latest examples came this week. On Monday, news broke of a bug in the company's Google+ social network that affected an estimated 500,000 people and exposed information that users intended to keep private. Although Google had known about the bug since March, it decided to keep the vulnerability to itself, in part, the Wall Street Journal reported, because it didn't want to raise the ire of regulators.

Then on Tuesday, The Intercept published a transcript of a private meeting between Ben Gomes, who heads up Google's search engine, and a team of company employees in July. Gomes was discussing Google's effort to develop a censored search engine for China, a product that company officials have repeatedly said is just an idea being explored, with no plans for an imminent launch.

But the transcript makes clear that the company hasn't been honest about Dragonfly, the code name for its Chinese search engine effort. Google, according to Gomes remarks, plans to launch the search engine as soon as it can get approval from Chinese officials, possibly as soon as early next year.

The latest incidents are part of a pattern of behavior

Google's decision to hide the security vulnerability and its duplicity about Dragonfly are part of an emerging pattern of behavior from the company. The company and top officials have shown repeatedly recently that they don't feel like they are accountable to anyone and shouldn't be trusted.

Take Dragonfly as an example. The company generated a lot of controversy when it previously operated a search engine in the country, and it made a big public show about standing up for free speech and human rights when it closed that service in 2010.

With the United States and China increasingly at odds over trade, theft of intellectual property, and other matters, any effort to re-launch a Chinese search service would likely be even more controversial today. Regardless, such an effort would be a matter of wide interest — to company employees, shareholders, policy makers, and the public at large — and ought to be subject to broad public discussion.

google employeesBut the company launched and developed its Dragonfly project in secret — not only from the public, but from all but a tiny portion of its workforce — seemingly intentionally in an effort to avoid just such scrutiny. The project only came to light as the result of a leak to the The Intercept.

Something similar happened with Project Maven, Google's effort to develop and offer artificial intelligence technology to the US Defense Department for use in analyzing drone video footage.

As with Dragonfly, Google kept the effort secret, including from many of its workers. Then, when Maven came to light, the company downplayed the effort, saying it was just offering the Defense Department access to the same AI technology it offers other companies and organizations and that the contract was for a relatively nominal amount, some $9 million.

But again, leaked documents showed that to be a lie. The company expected the contract to grow to as much as $250 million, and it was working closely with the Defense Department to customize its technology, according to reports. What's more, Google was planning on doing far more than analyze drone video; it reportedly planned to build a system that could allow the Pentagon to surveil entire cities.

Similar to what happened with the security bug, company officials sought to keep Maven on the down-low, knowing it would be controversial if it ever became public, internal emails show. Indeed, when the effort did become known inside the company, employees raised such an uproar about it that Google eventually canceled its contract with the military.

Google officials have been ducking Congress

But Google's untrustworthy, unaccountable behavior goes well beyond secret projects and hidden security vulnerabilities.

When the US Senate held hearings last month on foreign countries using social media services to influence American elections, Twitter sent CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook sent Sheryl Sandberg, CEO Mark Zuckerberg's top lieutenant. Google, by contrast, declined to send either Google CEO Sundar Pichai or Larry Page, CEO of parent company Alphabet. Top Google officials were also no-shows at related hearings held by Congress last fall.

The empty name tag left for Google's absence at the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence's hearing on election security on September 5, 2018.This despite the fact that Google and its YouTube service were among the prime vehicles that the Russian-linked actors reportedly used to spread propaganda and misinformation during the 2016 election. Pichai has reportedly agreed to finally testify before Congress later this year.

Meanwhile, the European Union has twice in the last two years found that Google illegally thwarted competition, fining it billions of dollars. Instead of agreeing to change its ways, Google in both cases has now appealed the fines.

This kind of behavior would be disturbing if it were coming from a small startup. But the fact that it's coming from one of the world's most powerful corporations makes it incredibly dangerous. Google is a company, after all, that essentially runs a global surveillance system. It collects and holds vast amounts of data on its billions of users.

And it not only knows all about us, but through its dominance of internet search and its outsized role in distributing news, it has a huge amount of control over what we think and know and experience as a society.

We should should be worried about any company having that kind of power. But we should be particularly concerned about Google having that kind of power. Because the company's recent behavior has shown that it's no longer worried about not being evil.

Description:

WHAT IS AGEC?
In a nutshell, the Allan Gray Entrepreneurship Challenge is a competition that gamifies learning about entrepreneurship for high school learners in Grades 8 to 12 in South Africa. The challenges are designed to engage participants to act and think like entrepreneurs and rewards those who finish among the top performers.

GAMEPLAY
#AGEC18 runs for 6 weeks, from 1 August to 12 September. Each week learners log on to the AGEC website or mobile app and complete a series of micro-challenges. These challenges take 15-60min to complete depending on their complexity. Leaderboards mean that progress can be tracked by individual performance, classes (for Partner Schools) and schools.

EARNING POINTS
Each challenge has a maximum number of points that can be earned for completing it. Depending on the complexity of the challenge it is worth more or less points. Easier challenges need to be completed in order to unlock the higher value, more difficult challenges.

MARKING AND MODERATION
Challenges are marked by multiple other participating learners with the help of marking rubrics. Points are earned and lost by each marker depending on how close their assessment is to the final mark awarded. If the marks awarded by various learners vary too greatly then a moderator assesses the submission and makes a final decision of the mark to be awarded.

TYPES OF CHALLENGES
Through #AGEC18 participants are exposed to useful mindsets, habits and concepts for entrepreneurs. These include exposure to exponential technologies such as Blockchain, Digital Biology, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things or 3D Printing. Some challenges include uploading images, some are theoretical and some require action.

AWARDS CEREMONY
On Thursday 11 October a spectacular awards ceremony will be held in Johannesburg to celebrate the top performers of #AGEC18. Awards will be made to the top individuals, classes, teachers and schools. This will be an evening not to be missed, and just one of the reasons to work hard for one of the top spots.

WHO IS #AGEC18 FOR?
• South African high school learners in Grades 8-12
• Schools that want to encourage a culture of entrepreneurship in their communities
• Teachers, parents, and alumni who want to support a spirit of entrepreneurship in the school can get involved by encouraging learners to sign up and complete challenges

PARTNER SCHOOLS
Learners anywhere in the country, at any high school registered with the Department of Basic Education or any home school, may register and compete in the Allan Gray Entrepreneurship Challenge. For 2017 we had a 100 Partner Schools who were running classroom activities that complement each week’s challenges. Navigate to our Partner Schools page to find out more.

Minor updates. Ability to filter leaderboard by province.

          Berkat Kecerdasan Buatan, Robot Bakal Gantikan Wawancara Manusia?      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Di era perkembangan teknologi yang begitu pesat seperti sekarang, banyak perdebatan soal robot yang bisa mengambil alih pekerjaan manusia di masa depan. 

Berbekal kecerdasan buatan (AI, Artificial Intelligence), robot diprediksi akan mengambil alih pekerjaan yang dilakukan oleh manusia. Tujuannya agar waktu pengerjaannya bisa lebih efisien.

Dilansir dari CNBC, Rabu (10/10/2018), adanya automatisasi dari kehadiran robot, justru akan membuat satu juta lapangan pekerjaan untuk manusia di Amerika Serikat (AS) bisa menghilang.

Perkembangan ini ditengarai bisa menciptakan lapangan kerja yang baru untuk robot. Bahkan, industri perekrutan juga berpotensi akan terganggu dengan automatisasi.

Perusahaan akan menggunakan robot untuk mempercepat proses rekrutmen dan memberikan waktu lebih singkat bagi manajer perekrutan untuk menjaring talenta.

Cara ini bisa menghapus cara tradisional manusia yang menghambat proses perekrutan.

Perusahaan Triplebyte, contohnya, mengembangkan teknologi kecerdasan buatan untuk mewawancara kandidat. Lalu, teknologi ini mencocokkan kandidat dengan posisi yang relevan dengan keterampilannya.

“Efektivitas perekrut menurun karena mengejar semua orang yang sama,” kata CEO Triplebyte, Harj Taggar.

Dia mengatakan, ada 40 persen kandidat yang berhasil mendapatkan pekerjaan setelah diwawancarai oleh Triplebyte. Angka ini berada di atas rata-rata industri sebesar 20 persen.

Langsung Dapat Pekerjaan?

Ilustrasi Robot (iStockPhoto)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Seorang kandidat bernama Jeremy Phelps, berhasil mendapatkan pekerjaan setelah melewati proses interview dengan perusahaan Taggar.

Insinyur perangkat lunak otodidak ini awalnya mendapatkan pekerjaan di bisnis pengiriman pizza dan makanan cepat saji, ketika tak memenuhi persyaratan aplikasi untuk pekerjaan teknis apa pun.

Setelah menemukan kuis kode Triplebyte suatu hari, dia mendpaatkan tawaran untuk wawancara serangkaian perusahaan teknologi San Fransisco.

Akhirnya, dia mendapatkan tawaran pekerjaan untuk peran rekayasa perangkat lunak di layanan pengiriman bahan makanan Instacart, dan pindah ke San Fransisco Bay.

“Kami menargetkan (konsumen) yang berpikir bahwa mereka insinyur terbaik di perusahaan, yaitu konsultan IT di Walgreens lokal. Ada juga yang ingin bekerja di Apple atau Dropbox,” kata Taggar.

 

Kecerdasan Buatan Dibutuhkan untuk Perekrutan

Ilustrasi Robot (iStockPhoto)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Triplebyte tak sendirian. Ada juga perusahaan-perusahaan teknologi yang membangun algoritma untuk membantu pembeli kerja meningkatkan proses rekrutmen. Terutama, wawancara dan deskripsi pekerjaan yang lebih inklusif.

Pakar ketenagakerjaan di situs TopResume, Amanda Augustine, mengatakan semakin banyak perusahaan menggunakan teknologi AI untuk merekrut karyawan.

“Ketika digunakan secara tepat, alat rekrutmen ini bisa membantu mengurangi menghilangkan bias, meningkatkan pengalaman kandidat, serta mengurangi waktu untuk menyewa (pewawancara),” kata dia.

          CE rekindling hope for HK      Cache   Translate Page      

The 2018 Policy Address carries my unswerving determination in leading Hong Kong to strive forward, Chief Executive Carrie Lam says. While there are many words, they serve just one purpose: rekindling hope for Hong Kong.

 

Mrs Lam made the statement when delivering her second Policy Address at the Legislative Council today.
 

She noted in the past year or so, she and her political team have taken a pragmatic approach to care, listen and act while being innovative, interactive and collaborative in implementing their policy initiatives proactively.

 

This approach has been used to enhance Hong Kong’s position as a financial centre, including the revision of listing regulations and application of financial technologies; and forge ahead the development of innovation and technology, such as the establishment of I&T clusters on healthcare technologies, artificial intelligence and robotics technologies. The outcomes of these initiatives have been remarkable.

 

Mrs Lam added these are testimonies to her belief when she was running for Chief Executive: “Hong Kong people are outstanding and our foundations are solid. As long as we stand united and remain focused, I have no doubt that we will scale new heights!”

 

The Chief Executive also acknowledged that there is no perfect solution and it would be difficult to forge an absolute consensus in the community, yet divergence of views should not become an obstacle to the Government leading Hong Kong to make progress and more importantly, it should never bring Hong Kong to a standstill.

 

She added the Government has spent a lot of effort on many rounds of public consultations, whether on land supply options or abolishing the Mandatory Provident Fund Scheme’s “offsetting” arrangement, and that procrastination would only bring greater suffering to families and grassroots workers.

 

On the approach of “dealing with simple issues before the difficult ones” adopted by the Government in presenting many funding items to the LegCo after consultation with legislators of different parties, Mrs Lam said this has helped reduce confrontation in LegCo and contributed to the smooth passage of initiatives that benefit the economy and people’s livelihood.

 

She added the Government should act swiftly and boldly on matters which clearly serve the public interest.

 

In this Policy Address, she has proposed a total ban on electronic cigarettes to protect Hong Kong people’s health, actively promote primary healthcare services to change the present treatment-oriented healthcare system, and provide further resources for research and development - all of which are big strides towards clear objectives.

 

Mrs Lam noted such realisations stem from her experience as the Chief Executive and this may have added a personal touch to this year’s Policy Address, but in fact many parts of it also reflect the views presented by LegCo members and various sectors of the community.

DEVOLVER DIGITAL AND NO CODE ANNOUNCE SCI-FI THRILLER ‘OBSERVATION’ – A Riveting Story Told Through the Lens of Artificial Intelligence – The Edges of Space – Independent developer No Code and sentient game label Devolver Digital have announced Observation – a new and captivating sci-fi thriller for PlayStation 4 and PC. The third project from award-winning Stories Untold developer No Code is set to launch Spring 2019 [observationgame.com]. Observation takes players on a suspenseful journey to the outer reaches of space to uncover what exactly happened to astronaut Dr. Emma Fisher and the crew of the space station Observation. The captivating narrative unfolds through the lens of the station’s artificial intelligence S.A.M. Players assume the role of S.A.M. by operating the station’s control systems, cameras, and tools to assist Emma in discovering what is happening to the station and the vanished crew. Developed by veterans from studios Rockstar North, Rocksteady, Creative Assembly, CCP and IO Interactive, Observation has been crafted with precision to bring fans a groundbreaking narrative with stunning visual fidelity. “Let’s get real, we’re five to ten years away from the machines taking over,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. “Observation is just going to give a taste of what it will be like to converge their minds with that of a CPU before it all happens suddenly for real.” Observation is set to release on PlayStation 4 and PC next spring but ambitious young AIs can follow development at observationgame.com and @_NoCode on Twitter. # # #

you said it well. very nicely expressed, and i believe sound.

the coconut's education is going well, and jack's learning is a bit more, how shall i put it, perhaps best, "hope for the best"

the coconut is done with "paradise lost" by milton (i looked it up, never read), and am unsure what if anything she is supposed to do as followup.

for humanities studies, she did ask for tutorial help w/ logical reasoning and reasoned writing, and specifically wanted to attend an outside-school class over the golden week holiday for 90 minutes per day, 7 days. she also asked to be dropped by car but be allowed to return by bus. very good. she is of the opinion that even though artificial intelligence and robotics and whatever else changes everything from now to then, the creative goes shall remain human, even if machine-assisted. i hope her judgement is sound, and prediction tracks true.

re <<popular>> and 9th grade high school, she prides herself, "i am not one of the popular ones"

but, she is popular with the teachers.

for one class she received a C on a practice test. was stoic but agile, and had presence of mind to ask the teacher for an example of A-graded test from the past. On the actual exam she received an A, a prefect A, only one of two A's and the only perfect A.

This Friday, at age 14 and a few days, she has a day-long school assignment, to team w/ two other students and roam the city, out new territories ('country side') and outlying island.

Asked her what she wanted to do for Christmas / New Year's break. Answer, visit China countryside and a factory. And so it shall be so.

I look forward to dialogue w/ the teachers one-on-one next week. No trepidation.

          HDFC Bank to gain access to over 30,000 start-ups through AEP      Cache   Translate Page      

[India], Oct 10 (BusinessWire-India): HDFC Bank has announced the launch of its Accelerator Engagement Programme (AEP). In this first-of-its-kind programme, HDFC Bank will partner with leading start-up accelerators from across the world to gain early access to over 30,000 fintech ideas and innovative solutions.

Start-up accelerators are organisations that help early-stage companies develop their product and business model, and also connect with investors. The bank will focus on those working in the area of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), analytics, and robotic process automation.

In the first phase, the Bank launched the programme in association with the United Kingdom's Department for International Trade (UK DIT) and start-up accelerators 91springboard and IvyCamp.

AEP was launched in Mumbai by Nitin Chugh, Country Head - Digital Banking, HDFC Bank in the presence of Ben Green, First Secretary, Trade, DIT; Lord Mayor of the City of London, Alderman Charles Bowman; Mithun Shetty, Head of Community Building at 91springboard; and Vikram Gupta, Founder and Managing Partner, IvyCap.

"We are excited to take our engagements with fintech start-ups global with the Accelerator Engagement Programme. At HDFC Bank, we are looking for disruptive, global first innovations. This enables us to be in sync with our customers' needs and desires and become part of their lifestyle. We believe that we need to work as a partner in the digital eco-system and encourage the spirit of innovation in the country. This is a win-win for all of us," said Nitin Chugh, Country Head - Digital Banking, HDFC Bank.

"I am delighted to help launch this powerful new initiative and even happier that the delegation I've brought to India is the first to benefit from it. Fintech is an area of immense potential for the UK and India, and I look forward to seeing more collaboration between our two countries in this area," said Lord Mayor of London, Charles Bowman.

91SpringBoard engages with more than 25,000 start-ups and fintechs globally while IvyCamp is engaged with more than 5,000.

AEP is part of HDFC Bank's Centre of Digital Excellence, where the objective is to create a mutually beneficial ecosystem with relevant players in the start-up space. Other initiatives include a Digital Command Centre and 'Industry Academia', which aims at mentoring and hand-holding fintechs and start-ups incubated at country's top technical and B-schools. The Bank also organises Digital Innovation Summit, an annual event to identify path-breaking fintech solutions. (BusinessWire-India)


          Amazon scraps secret AI recruiting tool that showed bias against women      Cache   Translate Page      

Amazon.com Inc's machine-learning specialists uncovered a big problem: their new recruiting engine did not like women. The team had been building computer programs since 2014 to review job applicants' resumes with the aim of mechanising the search for top talent, five people familiar with the effort told Reuters. Automation has been key to Amazon's e-commerce dominance, be it inside warehouses or driving pricing decisions. The company's experimental hiring tool used artificial intelligence to give job candidates scores ranging from one to five stars - much like shoppers rate products on Amazon, some of the people said. "Everyone wanted this holy grail," one of the people said. "They literally wanted it to be an engine where I'm going to give you 100 resumes, it will spit out the top five, and we'll hire those." But by 2015, the company realized its new system was not rating candidates for software developer jobs and other technical posts in a gender-neutral way. That is because Amazon's computer models were trained to vet applicants by observing patterns in resumes submitted to the company over a 10-year period. Most came from men, a reflection of male dominance across the tech...

          HK to embrace I&T       Cache   Translate Page      

Chief Executive Carrie Lam said Hong Kong will step up efforts to promote innovation and technology.

 

Delivering her second Policy Address at the Legislative Council today, Mrs Lam said further to the $50 billion earmarked in this year’s Budget, an additional $28 billion will be allocated for university research, re-industrialisation, application of technology in public services and fostering an enabling environment for I&T.

 

She said the most heartening and impactful event in the city’s I&T development in the past year has been the personal steer of President Xi Jinping, who recognises the city is an important force in implementing the country’s innovation-driven development strategy.

 

The Ministry of Science & Technology and the Ministry of Finance launched a new initiative in May, allowing universities and research institutions in Hong Kong to bid for science and technology funding of the Central Government.

 

Mrs Lam said the signing of the Arrangement on Enhancing Innovation & Technology Co-operation between the Mainland & Hong Kong in September also provides an overarching framework for I&T collaboration.

 

The Chief Executive also proposed to allocate $2 billion for launching the Re-industrialisation Funding Scheme to encourage industries to engage in high-end production by tapping into I&T and the application of smart technologies and production processes.

 

To fully unleash the city’s strengths in scientific research and promote technology transfer as well as the realisation of research and development findings, funding for three relevant schemes under the I&T Fund will be doubled, she said.

 

She added another $500 million will be allocated to the Innovation & Technology Bureau’s TechConnect to promote further technology adoption by government departments to provide better services for the community.

 

To tap into the latest I&T to further revamp e-Government services, Mrs Lam said artificial intelligence and chatbot functions will be introduced to the GovHK portal in 2019.

 

A Smart Government Innovation Lab will also be set up to invite the technology sector to put forward proposals on I&T applications and product suggestions for public services.

 

Mrs Lam added a four-pronged strategy will be adopted to cope with the rising law enforcement challenges brought by technological development.

 

The strategy will enhance capabilities of law enforcement agencies.

          PM's STIAC sets directions for scientific innovation in India      Cache   Translate Page      

[India], Oct 10 (NewsVoir): The Prime Ministers' Science, Technology and Innovation Advisory Council (STIAC) in its first meeting held on Tuesday set some clear objectives and directions for a number of key projects.

The panel will meet regularly to ensure adequate stimulus for technology innovation and entrepreneurship.

The panel was formulated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to advice on science and technology innovation. It is currently headed by Dr. K Vijay Raghavan, Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India.

Other members of the council include Former ISRO chief A. S. Kiran Kumar; Professor Ajay Sood, Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru; Professor Subhash Kak, Oklahoma State University; Professor Manjul Bharghava, noted mathematician from Princeton University; Major General Madhuri Kanitkar, the first woman dean from Pune's Armed Forces Medical College, and industrialist Baba Kalyani. Secretaries of around 10 central ministries, including science and technology, energy and education were special invitees to the panel.

The day-long meeting included presentations on a range of topics, followed by discussions and directions for action. The formation and terms of reference for the council are a consequence of the fact that while the quality of the scientific efforts in the country are good, as a whole, the country is unable to move forward in terms of scientific and technological innovation.

To address this, the Prime Minister personally took several steps on assuming office. Post meeting a group of key scientists, a number of policy directions were pushed by the Prime-Minister's Office's for action by the relevant ministries.

Over the past two years, the Group of Secretaries in Science and Technology have both formulated and initiated implementation of major steps to improve technological innovation in the country. In April this year, the Prime Minister appointed a new Principal Scientific Adviser followed by the constitution of the Prime Minister's STIAC. These concrete steps have resulted in the country's science and technology eco-system coming together towards a cohesive direction.

"There is now a stated direction and efficiency in the system due to the increased government, industry and philanthropy investment along with quality leadership. India's scientific enterprise can be made strong, collaborative, daring, purposeful and effective. India's Science and Technology sector must become a shining example to the world, and will have a strong positive impact on our society and economy," said K Vijay Raghavan, Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India.

In the meeting, various key projects and their direction were discussed including - Accelerating Growth for New India innovation (AGNIi), Deep Ocean Mission, Teaching S&T in Indian languages, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Quantum Computing, Bioscience Mission for Precision Health and Optimal Well-being, Waste to Energy, Research, Development and Innovation towards making India a leader in Electric Vehicles, Indian Biodiversity: characterisation, preservation and sustainable use.

All discussions and conclusions are being translated into clear action-points and will not be open-ended. The STIAC is scheduled to meet regularly and ensure that there is adequate stimulus to implement all the programs within a one-to-three year time period. (NewsVoir)

          Google concedes $10bn Pentagon Jedi data contract amid ethical concerns      Cache   Translate Page      

Google has withdrawn its bid for a lucrative $10bn Pentagon cloud computing contract amid concern that the defence contract would contravene its own principles limiting military applications of artificial intelligence.

Thousands of staff had already protested about working on a separate Department of Defense contract and against this backdrop has opted not to proceed further with the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure cloud (Jedi).

The prized contract amounted to a decade of work and could have helped propel Google forward in the cloud computing sector, making up for lost ground with the likes of Amazon and Microsoft which have become market leaders in selling off-site computing to businesses and public agencies.

A Google spokeswoman said: “While we are working to support the US government with our cloud in many areas, we are not bidding on the Jedi contract because first, we couldn't be assured that it would align with our AI principles, and second, we determined that there were portions of the contract that were out of scope with our current government certifications."

Bids were due to be submitted on Friday with Amazon Web Services now the clear favourite to win.

Earlier this week Google called time on its struggling Google+ social network following a data scandal.

          Google Drops Out of Pentagon’s $10B Cloud Competition, Says Deal May Clash With Its AI Values      Cache   Translate Page      

CircleID CircleID: Alphabet Inc.’s Google has announced that it will not compete for the Pentagon’s cloud-computing contract with an estimated value of $10 billion; says the project may conflict with its corporate values on artificial intelligence. Aaron Gregg reporting in the Washington Post: "The contract, known as the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure, or JEDI for short, calls for a massive cloud-computing infrastructure that can handle classified U.S. military data and enable new defense capabilities. Bids are due Oct. 12. In a statement to The Washington Post, Google said it is dropping its bid for ethical reasons and because it lacked certain government certifications."

According to Tech Workers Coalition, an advocate for giving employees a say in technology company decisions, Google’s decision to withdraw from the cloud competition was due to pressure from thousands of workers, not AI principles. Tweeted today: "Google had every intention of bidding for, and possibly winning, the JEDI contract. They spent considerable resources and hours of top executive time courting military officials to do exactly this. They only dropped out due to sustained employee pressure."

          Lattelecom to restructure and rebrand as tet      Cache   Translate Page      
Lattelecom Group has announced that it will be renamed ‘tet’ in spring next year, as the company looks to emphasise its position as a technology and entertainment company, having ‘surpassed the boundaries of the usual telecommunications industry’. The tet brand is currently used by Lattelecom for its energy and smart home services, and was chosen for the group-wide identity following public opinion polls showing that the company was described by consumers as ‘simple, understandable and affordable’. Explaining the move, Lattelecom chairman Julis Gulbis said: ‘Working on the business strategy for the next three years, we took into account that the scale of change in society as well as in technology and business in the next three years will be enormous. The aim is to create world-class innovative services and products based on both Lattelecom's current, vast experience in internet infrastructure and technology as well as the opportunities offered by the big data, artificial intelligence, robotics, and IoT. Although the goal is to create unprecedented products for the future, we want to keep the tet principle: to remain simple and comprehensible to the customers.’*Although the group will be renamed as test, Lattelecom will continue to use the Helio brand for its entertainment services, whilst tet will be used for technology and corporate offerings. The new tet’s products and services will also be divided into three broad groupings: Home – comprising energy, broadband, TV, telephony and smart home solutions; Digital Workplace – which covers devices, internet access, data storage, software, IT security and process digitisation solutions; and Data-Based Customer Communications, which Lattelecom says will ‘focus on data collection and applications with the goal of becoming pioneers of using customer service robots and other artificial intelligence solutions as well as personalised advertising.’

          Outraged by ICE's Treatment of Children? Here's How to Close Your Wallet to the Companies That Profit from It      Cache   Translate Page      
You can do something about it.

Are you sick of our government separating children from immigrant parents and putting them in cages?

Do you think ICE should be abolished?

You’re not alone. Thousands of people across the country are coming together to abolish ICE, from closing detention facilities to embarrassing the bankers that do business with the agency, activists coast-to-coast are doing what they can to end the sickening practice of putting immigrant kids in cages.

Of course, American kids are put in cages too.

And not everyone is motivated to risk arrest to stop a government agency.

So what’s an American to do?

The answer is simple: Close your wallet.

At least, close it to the companies that are profiting from the sick and twisted game of incarcerating children, subjecting them to psychotropic drugs, and sending them into slavery since at least 2014—long before Trump was elected.

Now that more people are aware of what ICE is doing, how does an average American know what companies are profiting from ICE’s madness?

Start here, by reading the new article by David Dayen, Below the Surface of ICE: The Corporations Profiting From Immigrant Detention (Disclosure: Both Dayen and I are Fellows at the Goodman Institute).

The two big companies to divest from are GeoGroup and CoreCivic. As of 2016, Vanguard and Fidelity, among others, both had funds that invest in one or both. Keep in mind CoreCivic was once Corrections Corporation of America, before changing their name.

Take the time to find out if one or more of your investment funds are invested in one of these two, and then, if you’re so moved and disgusted by their practices, divest.

Or, you could do what other activists have done: Target the banks investing in them. Writes Dayen:

“JPMorgan Chase holds no direct contract with ICE and doesn’t handle financial services at ICE facilities, but it does enable and profit from the private-prison duopoly of Geo Group and CoreCivic ... Since Donald Trump took office, JPMorgan has increased its stockholdings in Geo Group and CoreCivic 15,600 percent. The bank has also provided at least $167.5 million in debt financing to the two companies, which rely on borrowed money.”

Bank of America, FifthThird, PNC, HSBC, SunTrust, and Wells Fargo are also players profiting with ICE—among many more.

You can close your bank accounts and credit cards at these banks, and move your money to a local credit union.

For those who might not have funds or accounts to divest from, there are dozens of other companies profiting from ICE. In fact, “The vast majority of the immigration machine is left to private-sector contractors,” says Dayen. He continues:

“… contractors supply logistical support for immigration agencies. Consulting firm Deloitte earned $18 million in 2017 for case management. Salesforce has a software contract with Customs and Border Protection. Microsoft handles ICE’s data processing… Amazon recently promised its ‘unwavering’ commitment to work with law enforcement.”

Amazon’s facial recognition technology is used by ICE. Western Union is another ICE profiteer, and so is Aramark. Thankfully there are many other ways to buy products besides Amazon (and how many more reasons do you need to stop buying from them?). There are multiple ways to send money, cash checks, or pay utility bills, even for the very poor, that don’t involve Western Union.

Food services giant Aramark might be harder to escape because they are very good at dominating isolated places like hospitals and college campuses. But you can still ask your hospital or university to end their Aramark contract, or organize for other solutions.

In other words, there “is a wide variety of ways” to get active and register your discontent with ICE, Dayen tells us. “At the minimal level, figuring out what companies are supporting the immigration policies and not patronizing these companies.”

Dayen says these tactics can be effective, because “these are businesses that need your business to survive.”

This level of absolute corporate involvement “is only possible because of privatization,” he adds, which creates the opportunity to target these companies with consumer activism. “It’s more accessible than going after ICE as an organization. Unlike Trump, Wells Fargo might listen. Their reputation is [already] reeling.”

Dayen also says workers can play an important role in shutting down ICE contracts and collaborations:

“Silicon Valley … scored a major victory at Google in June when the company cancelled artificial intelligence work for the Defense Department. ‘Workers were learning how to wield power within their companies,’ says Yana Calou, an organizer with Coworker.org, which has been assisting tech employees in these fights.

“Weeks after the Google victory, workers circulated open letters at AmazonMicrosoft and Salesforce, asking CEOs to cancel their immigration contracts… ‘Tech infrastructure is absolutely integral to all of [ICE’s] operations,’ says Calou. ‘If they were really concerned about reuniting families, they would be building tech for the families.’”

Media could also play a role: Thomson Reuters—known for its reputable wire service—supplies ICE with data. (Disclosure: I have covered breaking news for Reuters as a stringer.)

Whatever actions you decide to take to help end the madness of profiting off doing unconscionable harm to children, it’s important to keep going, whether you’re taking action working at a tech firm or working with your fellow suburban moms. It’s easy to chase the next bone thrown by Trump, but staying on an issue, maximizing and ramping up pressure can pay off.

And you might as well hit ’em where they really don’t want you to: By withholding your money from them until they end their ICE contracts and collaborations. Be sure to shoot the corporations an email or @ them, and let them know how you don’t support their involvement in hurting children. #Boycott[InsertCompanyNameHere]

          PLuGHiTz Live - Special Events (Video): Deep Force Delivers the Power of Artificial Intelligence to the Edge      Cache   Translate Page      
Description

Just a few years ago, the idea of mass adoption for artificial intelligence would have been considered ridiculous. Then, with the power provides by cloud computing, artificial intelligence has made its way into everyday life, but it still requires an internet connection and servers behind the scenes. That is until now, with the help of Deep Force, an AI platform that helps developers bring artificial intelligence capabilities directly to devices.

By bringing the artificial intelligence directly to the hardware, it means that a number of new capabilities can be implemented that simply weren't possible or were less than ideal previously. For example, a team could use image and facial recognition together to produce a smart security camera that would alert a homeowner to an unexpected person on their property. Without the need for internet access, it means that disabling the hardware would be significantly more difficult.

In addition to new product categories, a lack of internet access could add some new capabilities to existing products. Retailers could implement smart displays, such as virtual fitting rooms and smart mirrors, without the need to connect those displays to a network connection. That would allow for easier store remodels and less chance of the displays going out of service.

One of the best additions, however, is actually a removal: the removal of privacy concerns. A number of smart toys have been targeted by privacy advocates for collecting data from children and sending that data over the internet, which was a requirement to make certain features work. With Deep Force's technology built-in to these smart toys, you no longer have to worry about what the manufacturer is doing with the data they collect, as they never need to collect it.

The first batch of capabilities is available now for developers to begin implementing into their products and services. To find out more, check out their website.

Society of Internet Professionals: Can Cloud-based AI Boost the Economy?
Society of Internet Professionals "Can Cloud-based AI Boost the Economy?"

This article, authored by Cory Popescu was first published on the blog of the Society of Internet Professionals (SIP). SIP is a not-for-profit, Toronto (Canada) based International organization to connect, learn and share. Our Vision is to provide the opportunity to leverage technology to have an inclusive future for everyone. Since 1997, SIP has spearheaded many initiatives, educational programs, and networking events.

Currently Artificial Intelligence (AI) penetrates faster in the tech industry, since it has increased the volume of new products and services in an efficient way and the structure of development, production, and delivery seems suitable to the implementation of this cutting-edge technology. Still plenty of other businesses and industries have yet to take advantage of the advances in this relatively novel application field. In medicine, energy or manufacturing sector, a more intensive and comprehensive application of AI could dramatically transform these fields while boosting the economic productivity.

Not only AI enters a particular sector, high-tech, also within it only a few major organizations make use of it to create expansion through volume and efficiency at unbelievable higher speed. Companies like Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Baidu and some startups engage AI in their matrix since it may be acceptable price-wise, while for the most part and all the rest of our economy, this novel technology proves difficult to implement and extremely costly.

Therefore, companies like Amazon, Microsoft, and Google aim to create cloud-based AI to make the technology cheaper to be implemented and used effortlessly. This leading-edge cloud-based AI is available now and by expanding it to lots of organizations it could trigger more economic development. Therefore, the solution is to bring AI and cloud-based machine-learning tools to large audiences.

In this pursuit, Microsoft has Azure, its own cloud platform and by cooperating with Amazon they are working to offer an open-source machine learning library called Gluon. This is created to engage building neural nets to become a core AI technology to copy and apply the processes of learning exposed by the human brain.

Although at this time, Amazon dominates cloud machine learning with AWS, Google is following suit with an open-source AI library named TensorFlow. This library proves powerful since it can develop and build further machine-learning software. Also, on designers’ table a priority represents the simpler use and implementation of AI, and the recent Google pre-trained system suit Cloud AutoML, promises to do just that. Both organizations start preparing consulting services to cover the shortage of cloud-based AI specialists who can spread the knowledge of the leading-edge AI.

The future will tell who is going to spread more and what quality of AI. It certainly represents a huge business opportunity for those involved. The cloud-based AI technology has great chances to expand and comprehend various sectors untouched so far. We can only realize the true benefits… and the downsides of AI once the cloud-based is ready to roll and found at almost everyone’s fingertips.

          LinkedIn is using AI to make recruiting diverse candidates a no-brainer (LKND)      Cache   Translate Page      

LinkedIn employees

  • LinkedIn is announcing new artificial intelligence features to help recruiters hire more diverse candidates.
  • The feature, which is now rolling out in the U.S., will ensure that the top search results will have a more representative gender breakdown.
  • LinkedIn will also track the hiring process in regards to gender to help companies understand the talent landscape and compare themselves to their industry peers.

LinkedIn is betting that AI can help companies overcome the human biases that hinder diversity.

The professional social network is rolling out new features on Wednesday to help companies notice and hire diverse job candidates so that they don't miss out on potential talent. The new artificial intelligence features will be incorporated into LinkedIn's Talent Insight product, aimed at recruiters, and will focus on gender diversity. 

The announcement by LinkedIn comes shortly after news emerged that Amazon had to shut down a special AI hiring tool, specifically because the technology discriminated against women, Reuters reported. LinkedIn's new AI tool, which the company briefed Business Insider on before the news about Amazon emerged, appears designed to filter out the biases in data that can taint AI technology. 

LinkedIn will track what happens in the hiring process with regards to gender, showing companies reports and insights about how their job postings and InMail are performing on this. In addition, LinkedIn will re-rank the top search results in LinkedIn Recruiter to be more representative.  

“Say I search for an accountant, and there are 100,000 accountants in the city I’m looking at,” said John Jersin, VP of Product Management for LinkedIn Talent Solutions. “If the gender breakdown is 40-60, then what Representative Results will do is that no matter what happens in our AI, the top few pages will have that same 40-60 gender breakdown.”

Currently, progress on diversity in many companies, especially in the tech industry, is slow. But studies have shown that diverse teams see higher profit, have better focus and are more innovative, leading companies to pay more attention to diverse hiring.

Human error in the hiring process can inhibit diversity on teams, and as companies shift towards using artificial intelligence in hiring, algorithmic bias can as well. To address this, LinkedIn is launching new features within its new Talent Insights product. The diversity insights will be available in the U.S. on Wednesday and will roll out globally in the near future.

"You don’t even realize you’re forming an opinion in a certain way"

Unconscious bias can play a role in the hiring process. Recruiters and teams may gravitate to people who are more similar to them, and they may base their decisions on stereotypes about people’s skills. For example, if a team is mostly made up of men, they may be less likely to hire a woman onto their team.

LinkedIn

“Unconscious bias occurs in a split second,” Jersin said. “When you look at someone for the first time, you don’t even realize you’re forming an opinion in a certain way. As we’re shifting hiring decisions to be made by artificial intelligence or at least partially made by it, we lay out those decisions in the data and the code.”

With LinkedIn reporting data on gender in the hiring process, companies can see the gender breakdown in each step of the process. They can also have better insight on the talent landscape as a whole, such as how skill sets change over time and finding talent pools. Companies can also compare their own gender breakdown to their peers in the industry and identify how to tap into a more representative pool.

The company said it had no current plans to extend the AI features to focus on other forms of workplace diversity besides gender. 

On Monday, LinkedIn announced its intent to acquire Glint, an employee surveying startup, and the company hopes Glint’s insights will also improve how customer attract, develop and retain talent.

“We’re developing a new level of artificial intelligence that’s improving efficiency in our product,” Jersin said. “We’re ensuring that it’s working in a fair representative way. We want to make sure that we’re taking steps to help our customers with diversity.”

NOW WATCH: 3 surprising ways humans are still evolving


          Why Google can't hack it as a hardware company      Cache   Translate Page      

Google announced a slew of shiny new products this week, including new Pixel smartphones. Unfortunately, a spectre of low sales hovered over all the new stuff. Compared to the iPhone, which has sold tens of millions of units, Google's Pixel phone has dwindled in popularity with the everyday buyer. Sure, the Pixel 2 camera is incredibly impressive, but overall, consumers don't seem care.

This remains true even after this week's big event. Google can launch all the new products it wants, but until it finds a way to truly inspire the average Joe, its ambitions as a consumer hardware company will likely go unfulfilled. The new mediocre Pixel phone line certainly won't do the trick on its own. But there may be a silver lining for Google.

Google's hardware projects are remarkably similar in purpose to Microsoft's Surface line. Both are attempts to showcase the very best of their respective ecosystems. For Google, this is machine learning. The new Pixel 3 phones have a number of features that rely on Google's AI, including a more advanced camera, a way to filter spam calls, and its controversial Duplex feature, which automates calls to make appointments. Similarly, the new Google Home Hub calls on the company's smart home expertise to provide a control center for smart doorbells or thermostats, while also functioning like an alarm clock, or family hub for questions, reminders, and news and weather.

But so far, Microsoft's ecosystem is still more impressive. The Surface Pro line is the standard for Windows hybrids and has sold comparatively well, and high-end halo products like the flashy Surface Studio all-in-one have done a lot to improve Microsoft's reputation, despite low sales.

Meanwhile, the Pixel line of phones seems to have done neither. Sales in 2017 didn't even reach 4 million units. In reviews, customers found the devices were fine — but not great. Last month, after Apple's new iPhone was revealed, The Verge said that while the phone was a solid update, the camera still didn't match the Google Pixel 2. On Twitter, a popular tech commentator known as Kontra found this infuriating, not because it was technically untrue, but because he felt the wild difference in sales between the iPhone and the Pixel made the comparison nonsensical.

The new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL don't seem like they'll do much to change that sentiment, particularly because their design remains uninspiring. Rather than stoking consumer lust, the plain, almost nerdy feel of the Pixel phones seems aimed mostly at choosy techies looking for a pure Android experience rather than the public at large. It's true, trying to establish a new foothold in the now-mature smartphone market is difficult. But Google isn't doing itself any favors by focusing on a few gimmicks rather than producing a desirable product overall.

The one bright spot in Google's hardware lineup has been its Home smart speaker products. Despite the market once being utterly dominated by Amazon's Alexa devices, Google's advantages in search and artificial intelligence have allowed to it gain significant market share. In some ways, these Google products are just better than the others.

If Google truly wants to establish itself as a consumer hardware company, it needs to make all of its products better than the others. Right now, it's hard to see why most mainstream consumers would choose a Pixel phone over a Samsung Galaxy or iPhone. Part of that is marketing, which has thus far lacked, but mostly it comes down to an elusive mix of design, features, and performance that define the very best products.

But it's not all doom and gloom. The good news is that the new Pixel Slate seems very promising. It's a hybrid device, like the iPad Pro or Surface line. The tablet runs ChromeOW and Chromebooks. It has a detachable keyboard with an adjustable angle, and it can adapt between its laptop-like or tablet modes. It is very thin, can be specced to be powerful, and showcases some genuinely useful innovations. In other words, the Pixel Slate is what the Pixel phones are not: slick, different from the competition, and genuinely new. It also seems well thought out: Using ChromeOS rather than Android signals a genuine attempt by Google to take on Windows and iOS.

The Slate was one bright spot for Google in an otherwise unremarkable rollout of new devices. If the company can keep its sights focused on the future of computing, perhaps it can finally become a hardware company and provide some genuinely interesting, drool-worthy products.

Yes, but also how decision links to further process and measured goals.

Articulation of Decision Responsibility    By Robin Hill in ACM

Remember the days when record-keeping trouble, such as an enormous and clearly erroneous bill for property taxes, was attributed to "computer error?" Our technological society fumbles the assignment of responsibility for program output. It can be seen easily in exaggerations like this, from a tech news digest: "Google's Artificial Intelligence (AI) has learned how to navigate like a human being." Oh, my. See the Nature article by the Google researchers [Google] for the accurate, cautious, descripton and assessment. The quote given cites an article in Fast Company, which states that "AI has spontaneously learned how to navigate to different places..." [Fast Company] Oh, dear.

But this is not the root of the problem. In the mass media, even on National Public Radio, I hear leads for stories about "machines that make biased decisions." Exaggeration has been overtaken by simple inaccuracy. We professionals in Tech often let this pass, apparently on the belief the public really understands that machines and algorithms have no such capacity as is normally connoted by the term "decision"; we think that the speakers are uttering our own trade shorthand. When we say that "the COMPAS system decides that offender B is more likely to commit another crime than is offender D" [ProPublica; paraphrase mine], it's short for "the factors selected, quantified, and prioritized in advance by the staff of the software company Northpointe assign a higher numeric risk to offender B than to offender D." When the Motley Fool website says "computers have been responsible for a handful of `flash crashes' in the stock market since 2010," it means that "reliance on programs that instantaneously implement someone's pre-determined threshholds for stock sale and purchase has been responsible... etc." [Motley Fool] ....

 Traditional candy company Mars moves Digital. Well put and in particular that it is about business process, Are we looking at the right problem?  Bot just wild experimentation.

Using Digital Tools to Move a Candy Company Into the Future  in NYTimes

Lauren Belomy, 32, is a digital transformation associate with Mars in New York City.

What do you do at work?

My job is to help move the company forward in a world that’s digital. We’re a traditional manufacturing company, and we need to be ready for the future.

I consider what opportunities the future will present, how we can best react and how we’ll make decisions about them.

I explore the ways in which we can take advantage of new technologies and tools, such as artificial intelligence; how we should experiment; and whether we are even looking at the right problems. Mars is based in McLean, Va., and I work remotely in Manhattan.

Did anyone do this before you?

It’s a new type of role, and one of my goals is to explain what’s possible in simple language so people understand.

Part of my work involves prototyping, such as growing peanut plants in a fish tank using digital automation — without human intervention. To do this, I worked with a few colleagues in Mount Olive, N.J., a unit that I’m part of, though I don’t work there all the time. We implemented an automated watering and fertilizing schedule to see how the plants would grow.

          LinkedIn is using AI to make recruiting diverse candidates a no-brainer (LKND)      Cache   Translate Page      

LinkedIn employees

  • LinkedIn is announcing new artificial intelligence features to help recruiters hire more diverse candidates.
  • The feature, which is now rolling out in the U.S., will ensure that the top search results will have a more representative gender breakdown.
  • LinkedIn will also track the hiring process in regards to gender to help companies understand the talent landscape and compare themselves to their industry peers.

LinkedIn is betting that AI can help companies overcome the human biases that hinder diversity.

The professional social network is rolling out new features on Wednesday to help companies notice and hire diverse job candidates so that they don't miss out on potential talent. The new artificial intelligence features will be incorporated into LinkedIn's Talent Insight product, aimed at recruiters, and will focus on gender diversity. 

The announcement by LinkedIn comes shortly after news emerged that Amazon had to shut down a special AI hiring tool, specifically because the technology discriminated against women, Reuters reported. LinkedIn's new AI tool, which the company briefed Business Insider on before the news about Amazon emerged, appears designed to filter out the biases in data that can taint AI technology. 

LinkedIn will track what happens in the hiring process with regards to gender, showing companies reports and insights about how their job postings and InMail are performing on this. In addition, LinkedIn will re-rank the top search results in LinkedIn Recruiter to be more representative.  

“Say I search for an accountant, and there are 100,000 accountants in the city I’m looking at,” said John Jersin, VP of Product Management for LinkedIn Talent Solutions. “If the gender breakdown is 40-60, then what Representative Results will do is that no matter what happens in our AI, the top few pages will have that same 40-60 gender breakdown.”

Currently, progress on diversity in many companies, especially in the tech industry, is slow. But studies have shown that diverse teams see higher profit, have better focus and are more innovative, leading companies to pay more attention to diverse hiring.

Human error in the hiring process can inhibit diversity on teams, and as companies shift towards using artificial intelligence in hiring, algorithmic bias can as well. To address this, LinkedIn is launching new features within its new Talent Insights product. The diversity insights will be available in the U.S. on Wednesday and will roll out globally in the near future.

"You don’t even realize you’re forming an opinion in a certain way"

Unconscious bias can play a role in the hiring process. Recruiters and teams may gravitate to people who are more similar to them, and they may base their decisions on stereotypes about people’s skills. For example, if a team is mostly made up of men, they may be less likely to hire a woman onto their team.

LinkedIn

“Unconscious bias occurs in a split second,” Jersin said. “When you look at someone for the first time, you don’t even realize you’re forming an opinion in a certain way. As we’re shifting hiring decisions to be made by artificial intelligence or at least partially made by it, we lay out those decisions in the data and the code.”

With LinkedIn reporting data on gender in the hiring process, companies can see the gender breakdown in each step of the process. They can also have better insight on the talent landscape as a whole, such as how skill sets change over time and finding talent pools. Companies can also compare their own gender breakdown to their peers in the industry and identify how to tap into a more representative pool.

The company said it had no current plans to extend the AI features to focus on other forms of workplace diversity besides gender. 

On Monday, LinkedIn announced its intent to acquire Glint, an employee surveying startup, and the company hopes Glint’s insights will also improve how customer attract, develop and retain talent.

“We’re developing a new level of artificial intelligence that’s improving efficiency in our product,” Jersin said. “We’re ensuring that it’s working in a fair representative way. We want to make sure that we’re taking steps to help our customers with diversity.”

          Email Marketing in 2018      Cache   Translate Page      

Email marketing is not dead! The tactics marketers must use in order to be effective have just changed. Businesses must be willing to change with the times or fear getting left to rot in the SPAM folder. As a company that has been involved in email marketing for years, IAS has learned many lessons (in some cases, the hard way) through numerous experiments with strategy. Potential clients and subscribers are unlikely to open an email from a business unless there is a clear benefit in doing so. There must be a given initiative such as a 50% off coupon, a promise of knowledge or insight, etc. This needs to be communicated within a captivating subject line or you could severely hinder your open rates. Here are some ways email marketing strategies have shifted, and several examples of how marketers can leverage this knowledge to improve customer outreach: – Tailored Email Campaigns: Today, by analyzing a given customer’s interests, you have the ability to spark their curiosity, leading to more clicks and opens. Marketers can allow each user to customize email settings, which include allowing them to choose frequency and the type of content they receive within those emails. By allowing potential customers to create their own “email experience”, you create an emotional connection with them. – Real-Time Email Outreach: Companies such as Yesmail are already utilizing an early form of this email marketing where a campaign is based on what the consumer is currently reading or searching for in their various social media feeds. For example, if a customer is reading about sports events, the times and option to buy tickets online would arrive in their inbox in real time. The general idea is to leverage awareness about your customer’s situation so you can ignite a real-time dialogue with them via e-mail and achieve greater influence. – Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning: If you’ve used Google inbox, you’ve already seen how your phone reads your emails and learns to respond. It’s still pretty basic (an algorithm that creates 3 short responses based on the content), but it’s gotten more intelligent in the last couple years and will likely continue. These types of AIs are becoming more common for marketers and consumers alike. The future of email marketing is definitely here, yet far from perfect. In the coming years, businesses and marketers should already be using all the methods available along with being on the cutting edge of marketing strategies to come.

          Tech Workers Now Want to Know: What Are We Building This For?      Cache   Translate Page      
The New York Times Jack Poulson, a Google research scientist, recently became alarmed by reports that the company was developing a search engine for China that would censor content on behalf of the government. While Dr. Poulson works on search technologies, he had no knowledge of the product, which was code-named Dragonfly. So in a meeting last month with Jeff Dean, the company’s head of artificial intelligence, Dr. Poulson asked if Google planned to move ahead with the product and if his work would contribute to censorship and surveillance in China. According to Dr. Poulson, Mr. Dean said that Google complied with surveillance requests from the federal government and asked rhetorically if the company should leave the United States market in protest. Mr. Dean also shared a draft of a company email that read, “We won’t and shouldn’t provide 100 percent transparency to every Googler, to respect our commitments to customer confidentiality and giving our product teams the freedom to innovate.” The next day, Dr. Poulson quit the company. Mr. Dean did not respond to a request for comment, and Google declined to comment. Across the technology industry, rank-and-file employees are demanding greater insight into how their companies are deploying the technology that they built. At Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Salesforce, as well as at tech start-ups, engineers and technologists are increasingly asking whether the products they are working on are being used for surveillance in places like China or for military projects in the United States or elsewhere. That’s a change from the past, when Silicon Valley workers typically developed products with little questioning about the social costs. It is also a sign of how some tech companies, which grew by serving consumers and businesses, are expanding more into government work. And the shift coincides with concerns in Silicon Valley about the Trump administration’s policies and the larger role of technology in government. “You can think you’re building technology for one purpose, and then you find out it’s really twisted,” said Laura Nolan, 38, a senior software engineer who resigned from Google in June over the company’s involvement in Project Maven, an effort to build artificial intelligence for the Department of Defense that could be used to target drone strikes. All of this has led to growing tensions between tech employees and managers. In recent months, workers at Google, Microsoft and Amazon have signed petitions and protested to executives over how some of the technology they helped create is being used. At smaller companies, engineers have begun asking more questions about ethics. And the change is likely to last: Some engineering students have said they are demanding more answers and are asking similar questions, even before they move into the work force. “What people are looking for — not just employees — they are looking for some clarity,” said Frank Shaw, a Microsoft spokesman. “Are there principles that get applied? Even if you don’t agree with the decision that gets made, if you understand the thinking behind it, it helps a lot.” Amazon did not respond to a request for comment. The lack of information about what tech employees are working on was recently evident at Clarifai, an artificial intelligence start-up in New York City. Last year, a small team of Clarifai engineers began working on a project inside a private room at its downtown New York office, said three people with knowledge of the matter, who spoke on the condition that they not be identified for fear of retaliation. Paper covered the windows, and employees called the room “The Chamber of Secrets,” in a sly reference to the second Harry Potter novel. Even the eight engineers and researchers working inside the room did not entirely realize the nature of the project, the people said. When employees asked about the project in meetings, Clarifai’s chief executive, Matt Zeiler, said it was a government proj...

          Hadoop Needs To Be A Business, Not Just A Platform      Cache   Translate Page      

It is safe to say that a little more than a decade ago, when the clone of Google’s MapReduce and Google File System distributed storage and computing platform was cloned at Yahoo and offered up to the world as a way to transform the nature of data analytics at scale, that we all had much higher hopes for the emergence of platforms centered around Hadoop that would change enterprise, not just webscale, computing.

It has been a lot tougher to build the road to enterprise customers and therefore profits, and the reason is simple. Databases are extremely sticky and very hard to change, even when the promise of extremely cheap storage at least by the standards of the mid-2000s is dangled like a juicy carrot. Hadoop, which became the name of a collection of mostly open source programs dealing with data storage and analytics at scale, has been brilliantly and carefully evolved into a number of different platforms by the likes of Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR Technologies, and even IBM for a while.

But Hadoop has remained a complex if sophisticated platform aimed at the upper echelons of computing, suitable for the Global 5000 customers that were once on the bleeding edge, four or five decades ago, with IBM mainframes for transaction processing. The pace of technological change has accelerated much faster than Moore’s Law, and there are so many ways to skin the analytics cat that it is, frankly, as ridiculous as it is exciting and interesting. Enthusiasm tends to run ahead of practicalities, which is why old technologies persist. The question we have as we contemplate the merger between Cloudera and Hortonworks, arguably the largest commercial distributors and the only two who have made it to public offerings to investors on Wall Street, is whether or not their momentum is enough that Hadoop will be able to evolve and become a profitable business.

That is the central question, and while one might argue that merging two customer bases, two code bases with different licensing philosophies and some radically different approaches to storing and querying data, and two distinct companies so they stop fighting each other will make for a better and stronger Hadoop platform. It is certainly not a foregone conclusion that Hadoop as a business is as good as Hadoop as a platform, and the whole premise of a commercial open source distribution is that it has to be a good business so the platform can be reinvested in to keep it improving and evolving.

There are very few platforms that have succeeded in this regard, and Red Hat, with its linux server, JBoss application middleware, OpenStack cloud controller, and OpenShift Kubernetes container orchestrator, is really the only good example worth bringing up from the open source realm. Nothing else even comes close. If Red Hat had created a Hadoop distribution, as many of us thought it should have, or bought one, as it certainly could have, it is probable that Cloudera and Hortonworks would have never become public companies, which allowed their investors, who collectively plowed $1.04 billion into the former and $248 million into the latter, to cash out. (Intel’s $740 million infusion into Cloudera in 2014 was just an example of the hubris and folly that the chip giant can indulge in thanks to its virtual monopoly in PC and server chips. It happens to all big tech companies that create large profit pools. This list of such acquisitions and partnerships by IBM is long, just as an example.)

As a venture capital harvesting machine, Hadoop has been brilliant. Don’t get us wrong. And from the humble beginnings of the MapReduce data chunking and chewing algorithm and the Hadoop Distributed File System, the Hadoop platform has grown into a vast ecosystem of tools that mirrors all of the wonderful things that have come to surround the Linux kernel and turned it into a proper operating system that can span everything from a smartphone to a supercomputer. Hadoop is ornate, and sometimes baroque, and has so many variations on the themes for everything from data storage to SQL and other kinds of database and data warehouse overlays to different distributed computation models to a layer for in-memory processing and machine learning. It is a very large Swiss Army knife. That is Hadoop’s best feature, and it has also been its curse. Perhaps now, with the two largest Hadoop players merging, the Hadoop stack can be pruned a bit and better optimized for the workloads of the 2020s.

That, we presume, is the idea behind the merger between Cloudera and Hortonworks. The two companies also want to remove costs and probably remove some of the intense competition on pricing to get the combination to profitability, as is expected from every public company. (Will it be called CloudWorks? HortonEra? Something different? Or just Cloudera? Probably not Hortonworks.) And it looks like the combined Hadoop distributions have a path to profitability, if the trend lines hold.

That said, these two companies have burned through a tremendous amount of money to get here, and in the past six and a half years where we have visibility into the numbers, the businesses have indeed grown, but at tremendous cost. Both Cloudera and Hortonworks had models that showed they would grow a lot faster than they actually did, and the slower growth has pushed out the point of profitability ahead of them every year. Adding more and more blades to the Hadoop Swiss Army knife has been costly, and to their credit, they have done innovative things that have kept Hadoop relevant as conditions in the market have changed dramatically in the past decade. What they are trying to do is extremely difficult, and we have nothing but tremendous respect for the effort that some of the smartest people we know in infrastructure and business have put in. But the numbers are not pretty, even if they are getting rosier here in 2018 and looking out into 2019 and 2020.

In fact, it might have been better for these two companies to have merged a few years back, cleaned everything up, got the synergies reckoned, and be going public right now.

Cloudera got the early jump as the dominant revenue generator of the Hadoop stack, but in recent years, Hortonworks has been catching up fast. Take a look:


Hadoop Needs To Be A Business, Not Just A Platform

The bars at the far right show figures for the first half of calendar 2018, so don’t mistakenly think revenues have dropped.

Here is our analysis in tabular form, so you can see the numbers yourself:


Hadoop Needs To Be A Business, Not Just A Platform

Clearly sales growth has cooled for Cloudera it only grew 26 percent in the past two quarters compared to the same period 12 months earlier and down from the 42 percent growth rate in 2017 while Hortonworks is still humming along at 40 percent growth here in 2018 thus far. The combined companies is probably the best way to reckon the overall growth rate, and for the first half that is 32 percent growth for $378 million in sales. There is no reason to believe that the combination cannot break through $800 million in sales in calendar 2019 and push up through $1 billion in 2020.

If you do the math, Cloudera has raked in $1.28 billion in revenues in the past six and a half years, while Hortonworks only brought in $808 million. Add in the venture capital of $1.31 billion in venture capital, plus $225 million that Cloudera raised in early 2017 for its IPO and the $100 million that Hortonworks raised in late 2014 from its IPO, and the total pile of cash that has come to the pair is $3.69 billion. Hortonworks still has $86 million of cash and Cloudera still has $440.1 million. But over that same time period, Cloudera has booked cumulative losses of $1.19 billion and Hortonworks has cumulative losses of $979 million, for a total of $2.16 billion. Both separately and together, these companies are burning the wood a lot faster than they can cut it. This chart shows it visually:


Hadoop Needs To Be A Business, Not Just A Platform

But the financial situation is getting better, as the data shows. The Cloudera and Hortonworks presentations accompanying the merger announcement use trailing twelve month data, which is suitable but we mixed the quarterly data above because it has a longer trend line. Here is what the profit top-level financials look like:


Hadoop Needs To Be A Business, Not Just A Platform

The combined companies, on a trailing twelve month basis, have $720 million in revenues, and gross margins are pretty good at 74 percent. A software company with a legacy installed base can pull in 85 percent to 95 percent gross margins, and aside from the elimination of redundant costs and other synergies that Cloudera and Hortonworks are talking about eliminating, the reduction in competition is going to help, too. No one is talking about that, of course, but that is no doubt part of the thinking behind the merger. There is some cross-selling that is possible to boost revenues, but we think the reduction in competition is a bigger deal. Rationalizing the very different licensing models Hortonworks is pure open source with subscription support, while Cloudera is open core with support plus enterprise add-ons with subscription licenses for key features is not going to be easy, and many products and projects will have to be merged or picked one over the other. Still, even with the $125 million in synergies removed, the combined company will move closer towards profitability, and with a reasonable 30 percent revenue growth rate, the new entity should break through $1 billion and be profitable in 2020. And that is precisely the plan:


Hadoop Needs To Be A Business, Not Just A Platform

To be precise, the combined Cloudera-Hortonworks is telling Wall Street that it can get above $1 billion in sales and have gross margins about 75 percent and operating margins above 10 percent for calendar 2020. Which implies that it will have actual profits, if all goes well.

The total addressable market is expanding, too, and that will help. Here is how Cloudera and Hortonworks see the opportunity out in front of them:


Hadoop Needs To Be A Business, Not Just A Platform

The core market that Hadoop is chasing is comprised of three different segments, according to Cloudera-Hortonworks, and will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 21 percent between 2017 and 2022, from $12.7 billion to $32.3 billion. Within that, cognitive and artificial intelligence workloads represent a $14.3 billion opportunity in 2022, $4.9 billion for advanced and predictive analytics software, and $13.2 billion for dynamic data management systems (what we would call modern storage). In addition to that, the Hadoop platform is also chasing relational and non-relational database management systems and data warehouses, which is another $51 billion opportunity in 2022, for a total TAM of $83 billion. Even a small slice of this, which is what Hadoop currently gets today, could be billions of dollars by then. (We shall see.)

The deal for the merger of the two companies is surprisingly simple. Shareholders in Hortonworks will get 1.305 shares in Cloudera and Cloudera will be the remaining company in fact, if not necessarily in name. This means that Cloudera shareholders will own 60 percent of the combined company and Hortonworks shareholders will own the remaining 40 percent. The combined companies had a fully diluted equity value of $5.2 billion before the merger was announced. At the time the deal was announced, the combined firms had more than $500 million in cash, no debt, and 2,500 customers who largely do not overlap. There are more than 120 customers who spend $1 million a year and another 800 customers who spend more than $100,000 a year for subscriptions and such.


          The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence      Cache   Translate Page      

by Mike Small

Famously, in 2014 Prof. Stephen Hawking told the BBC: "The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race." The ethical questions around Artificial Intelligence were discussed at a meeting led by the BCS President Chris Rees in London on October 2nd. This is also an area covered by KuppingerCole under the heading of Cognitive Technologies and this blog provides a summary of some of the issues that need to be considered.

Firstly, AI is a generic term and it is important to understand precisely what this means. Currently the state of the art can be described as Narrow AI. This is where techniques such as ML (machine learning) combined with massive amounts of data are providing useful results in narrow fields. For example, the diagnosis of certain diseases and predictive marketing. There are now many tools available to help organizations exploit and industrialise Narrow AI.

At the other extreme is what is called General AI where the systems are autonomous and can decide for themselves what actions to take. This is exemplified by the fictional Skynet that features in the Terminator games and movies. In these stories this system has spread to millions of computers and seeks to exterminate humanity in order to fulfil the mandates of its original coding. In reality, the widespread availability of General AI is still many years away.

In the short term, Narrow AI can be expected to evolve into Broad AI where a system will be able to support or perform multiple tasks using what is learnt in one domain applied to another. Broad AI will evolve to use multiple approaches to solve problems. For example, by linking neural networks with other forms of reasoning. It will be able work with limited amounts of data, or at least data which is not well tagged or curated. For example, in the cyber-security space to be able to identify a threat pattern that has not been seen before.

What is ethics and why is it relevant to AI? The term is derived from the Greek word “ethos” which can mean custom, habit, character or disposition. Ethics is a set of moral principles that govern behaviour, or the conduct of an activity, ethics is also a branch of philosophy that studies these principles. The reason why ethics is important to AI is because of the potential for these systems to cause harm to individuals as well as society in general. Ethics considerations can help to better identify beneficial applications while avoiding harmful ones. In addition, new technologies are often viewed with suspicion and mistrust. This can unreasonably inhibit the development of technologies that have significant beneficial potential. Ethics provide a framework that can be used to understand and overcome these concerns at an early stage.

Chris Rees identified 5 major ethical issues that need to be addressed in relation to AI:

  • Bias;
  • Explainability;
  • Harmlessness;
  • Economic Impact;
  • Responsibility.

Bias is a very current issue with bias related to gender and race as top concerns. AI systems are likely to be biased because people are biased, and AI systems amplify human capabilities. Social media provides an example of this kind of amplification where uncontrolled channels provide the means to share beliefs that may be popular but have no foundation in fact - “fake news”. The training of AI systems depends upon the use of data which may include inherent bias even though this may not be intentional. The training process and the trainers may pass on their own unconscious bias to the systems they train. Allowing systems to train themselves can lead to unexpected outcomes since the systems do not have the common sense to recognize mischievous behaviour. There are other reported examples of bias in facial recognition systems.

Explanation - It is very important in many applications that AI systems can explain themselves. Explanation may be required to justify a life changing decision to the person that it effects, to provide the confidence needed to invest in a project based on a projection, or to justify after the event why a decision was taken in a court of law. While rule-based systems can provide a form of explanation based on the logical rules that were fired to arrive at a particular conclusion neural network are much more opaque. This poses not only a problem to explain to the end user why a conclusion was reached but also to the developer or trainer to understand what needs to be changed to correct the behaviour of the system.

Harmlessness – the three laws of robotics that were devised by Isaac Asimov in the 1940’s and subsequently extended to include a zeroth law apply equally to AI systems. However, the use or abuse of the systems could breach these laws and special care is needed to ensure that this does not happen. For example, the hacking of an autonomous car could turn it into a weapon, which emphasizes the need for strong inbuilt security controls. AI systems can be applied to cyber security to accelerate the development of both defence and offence. It could be used by the cyber adversaries as well as the good guys. It is therefore essential that this aspect is considered and that countermeasures are developed to cover the malicious use of this technology.

Economic impact – new technologies have both destructive and constructive impacts. In the short-term the use of AI is likely to lead to the destruction of certain kinds of jobs. However, in the long term it may lead to the creation of new forms of employment as well as unforeseen social benefits. While the short-term losses are concrete the longer-term benefits are harder to see and may take generations to materialize. This makes it essential to create protection for those affected by the expected downsides to improve acceptability and to avoid social unrest.

Responsibility – AI is just an artefact and so if something bad happens who is responsible morally and in law? The AI system itself cannot be prosecuted but the designer, the manufacturer or the user could be. The designer may claim that the system was not manufactured to the design specification. The manufacturer may claim that the system was not used or maintained correctly (for example patches not applied). This is an area where there will need to be debate and this should take place before these systems cause actual harm.

In conclusion, AI systems are evolving but they have not yet reached the state portrayed in popular fiction. However, the ethical aspects of this technology need to be considered and this should be done sooner rather than later. In the same way that privacy by design is an important consideration we should now be working to develop “Ethical by Design”. GDPR allows people to take back control over how their data is collected and used. We need controls over AI before the problems arise.

          Any real-life Matrix could Not be Only computers - but would Always require Beings      Cache   Translate Page      

There is a common notion that there could, in principle, be a ruling Matrix that was entirely an Artificial Intelligence; consisting entirely of computers - and that such could (for good or ill) administer reality.

But this is not possible, even in theory. The world of computers is a world of quantities, of numbers; and as such excludes the issue of which qualities - of the entirety of open-ended and interconnected reality - is being 'modelled' by the numbers.

But modern Man has become very adept at blinding himself to the presence of Beings in all functional systems - Beings with life, consciousness and purpose. The Scientist is left-out of science, The Bureaucrat ignored in a Bureaucracy. Yet he is always present, always making selections and judgements and over-riding The System - and necessarily so.

This will never go away - so if, or when, there is claimed to be a purely objective, quantitative, numerical System in place; there will always be, somewhere and probably concealed, a Being or Beings standing-outside and above The System and manipulating it, adjusting it; partly to maintain its processes, and overall in-line-with their purposes.

It is ultimately these Beings which matter; far more than any System, any Artificial Intelligence - and in some ways The System functions merely to conceal this reality. It is a case of 'Pay no attention to that Being behind The System...'.

And this is precisely why modernity is tending towards a single bureaucratic System; why all mainstream politics and media converge upon this version of the future; because The Matrix both facilitates and conceals the influence of demonic Beings on the world.

          Your mean-spirited Instagram photos may not survive this new anti-cyberbully AI      Cache   Translate Page      

Instagram has conscripted artificial intelligence into the fight against cyberbullying. The social media site announced it is rolling out machine learning in the hopes of detecting mean-spirited photos and helping everyone on Instagram generally #BeBest, just like Melania Trump would want them to be.

“While the majority of photos shared on Instagram are positive and bring people joy, occasionally a photo is shared that is unkind or unwelcome,” Adam Mosseri, the new head of Instagram, said in a press release. “We are now using machine learning technology to proactively detect bullying in photos and their captions and send them to our Community Operations team to review.”

Why opt for artificial intelligence to detect bullying instead of relying on users to report violations? Instagram says it has found that many people who experience or observe bullying don’t report it. (Speaking from experience, a more common response is retreating to the bathroom to drown one’s sorrows in Biscoff cookies.) As such, this is an interesting application of machine learning–which has yet to be proven as an especially deft tool when it comes to, say, discerning sarcasm or figuring out when something is actually bullying as opposed to good-natured trolling by your big brother as required by Sibling Law.

It will be interesting to see how AI manages to navigate the complex, visual language world or whether every single user will have their comments filtered at some point. The new technology has begun to roll out and will continue to in the coming weeks.

The update to the platform’s technology comes a few months after Instagram unveiled a bullying comment filter on the site, which proactively detects and hides bullying comments. The Facebook-owned site is now expanding that to comments on live videos in the hopes of keeping everyone nice and friendly.

This is the third post in my series about the counterintelligence implications of artificial intelligence (AI). The first two are here and here. I’ll start this one with a story. From 2001 to 2007, I was the counsel for intelligence policy at the Department of Justice. In addition to having responsibility for representing the government before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, I also advised the Justice Department and other agencies on a range of national security law issues, including privacy. While in that position, I attended a meeting one day with Adm. John M. Poindexter. The retired admiral is the former national security adviser to President Ronald Reagan who played an important and controversial role in the Iran-Contra affair. He was convicted at trial of various charges that involved lying to Congress and obstruction, but those convictions were reversed on appeal and other charges were later dropped. Poindexter had requested the meeting with me and a…

          Midday open thread: Fat bear, 'emotional support' squirrel      Cache   Translate Page      

Today’s comic by Matt Bors is Coping with the Climatepocalypse:

Cartoon by Matt Bors

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is a Democrat … again. And, of course, he wants to run for president, because previously Republican billionaires are just what Democrats need to rescue them.

Flight delayed after woman brings an "emotional support squirrel" onboard. Enough, people. Just enough.

And here’s something just as stupid, but involving acorns not squirrels.

Amazon tried to build a recruiting tool using artificial intelligence to find the top talent. It discriminated against women, and not subtly:

Amazon’s computer models were trained to vet applicants by observing patterns in resumes submitted to the company over a 10-year period. Most came from men, a reflection of male dominance across the tech industry.

In effect, Amazon’s system taught itself that male candidates were preferable. It penalized resumes that included the word “women’s,” as in “women’s chess club captain.” And it downgraded graduates of two all-women’s colleges, according to people familiar with the matter. They did not specify the names of the schools.

At one of the first doors I knocked, I met young man named Jordan. He said, "Are you really going around to make sure everyone in my neighborhood can vote?" I said yes. He grabbed his coat and said, "I'm coming with you to help." This was his first, but not last, canvass. pic.twitter.com/C765b8uHfI
