          This AI-enabled Chrome extension hides toxic comments to reduce your stress      Cache   Translate Page      

[USA], Mar 12 (ANI): Online is a big, bad world and not everyone can be thick skinned so as to overlook the trolls, negative comments or insults.

To make your online life slightly stress-free, a Google Chrome extension is taking the help of artificial intelligence.

The new Chrome extension, called Tune, automatically hides comments that its Perspective AI considers toxic. As Cnet reports, the tool works for comments on Reddit, Twitter, YouTube, and Disqus.

Developed by Alphabet’s Jigsaw, Tune’s Perspective AI learns to flag negative comments from thousands of people labelling millions of posts as spam, harassment or obscene content. Once a comment is identified as toxic, Tune can adjust the visibility of such comments.

Website moderators can choose from complete silence in ‘Zen Mode’ to viewing everything without any filter. You can further choose to adjust the comment based on the site. For instance, you can choose to disable the tool for Facebook and enable it for Reddit. (ANI)

          Comment on Supervisors Add Staff to Keep Construction Projects on Schedule in Budget Talks by Bob Ohneiser Esq.      Cache   Translate Page      
Safety of our students and staff is a serious issue. When I was on the school board we started the first Health, Safety and Wellness Committee after the absurd bomb scare at Broad Run High School. We included panic buttons at every school and improved the camera systems at all schools. Panic buttons were only at Elementary Schools at that time. In my discussions with Sheriff Chapman I suggested local deputies participate at every "shooter in the building" exercise, wireless panic buttons be installed around the facility so early warning of an intrusion can take place and also an artificial intelligence plan be put in place by Mr. Chapman countywide to insure that as deputies drive around the County they deliberately route themselves near ALL THE SCHOOLS so the response time to an emergency be reduced countywide. A lot can be done to make our schools less of soft targets including stopping the absurd assumption that a first grader can walk 9 tenths of a mile to a school and not be exposed to kidnapping, abuse or worse. We need a comprehensive plan not just a cop at each school which doesn't even mean they are really there as meetings call them away periodically. Walking paths and the W &OD needs to be monitored as well. There should be no tolerance for even one child being harmed because the community didn't foresee and adjust to real dangers. I complement John Whitbeck for his initiative but it is far from a complete solution to a serious issue. Bob Ohneiser Esq. Candidate for Chair of Board of Supervisors

          Eurocis Düsseldorf: How and why brick and mortar retail must go digital      Cache   Translate Page      
#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

How can brick and mortar stores benefit from digitisation? This was the dominating question at the Eurocis trade fair for retail technology in Düsseldorf, which took place in February. More than ever, new solutions focus on the benefits for customers and retail.

Implementation is the new motto

In recent years, IT fairs such as Eurocis tended to put new topics on the agenda, indicating a pace of digitisation that scared retailers. Omnichannel, mobile commerce, mobile payment, artificial intelligence... all these buzzwords have been haunting retail landscapes for some time now and are far from having been implemented. Therefore, a cheerful message from Eurocis is: There is no new super hot topic. This means that the industry is working broadly on the implementation of all the new possibilities and on executing the first "proof of concepts".

Blackbox brick and mortar stores

The big problem so far has been how to digitise stores. For example, how to track customers’ in store behaviour and which products they try but not buy? How to digitise product locations? One solution is the use of robots. MetraLabs presented a mobile robot that travels through the store at night and uses RFID technology to count products. It also recognises if any products are missing and whether they are in the right location. German fashion chain Adler is already using it, taking about three to four hours to complete its nightly mission. "This is the first step towards store digitisation," explains Dr. Andreas Bley of MetraLabs, and the mandatory prerequisite for using artificial intelligence, for instance.

Collecting customer data through facial recognition

Facial recognition will make its entry into brick and mortar stores - but probably more discreetly than previously thought and due to privacy policy guidelines, more anonymously. New hardware is not required as this work is increasingly being carried out by already existing in-store security cameras. An accompanying software detects age, gender, mood, fashion style, hairstyle, hair colour, clothing and brand logos of customers as well as their paths and behaviour in the store. "We can't identify the people, we can only recognise what a person is doing and whether they have been to the store before", explains Bianca van der Woude of Great Circle. Only if the data is connected to a loyalty card, the person becomes identifiable. But this requires the customer’s consent

More efficient staff and self-service checkouts

With its idea, Re/Act wants to promote communication between different sales people in the store and has developed an in-store messenger service that can be accessed via smartwatches, tablets or other devices. This should save time walking around, which can instead be used to take better care of customers. Cash registers too are becoming increasingly mobile through mobile payment terminals or tablets for sales staff. However, this has to be linked to security systems and customers have to be ready to show a proof of purchase when exiting the store. In the future, convenience stores such as petrol stations may even no longer require personnel and function fully automatically. There were examples at the trade fair too, such as the Nanostore from AiFi. As big as a standard container, it could easily be used as a pop-up store, for example.

AI is one of the big topics of the future

According to the EHI Trend Study, artificial intelligence (AI) is currently the most important topic of the future for retailers, even though it was not even on the horizon during the last trend survey two years ago. Hamburg-based company Blue Yonder specialises in AI in retail environments and uses it, for example, when optimising prices. "It is about collating internal data, own pricing strategies and external data - such as the weather or the price developments of competitors - and to adjust automated prices at any time based on it," says Dr. Ansgar Thiede of Blue Yonder. This means that sales can be monitored better throughout the season and thus ruinous price wars avoided at the end of it.

According to Blue Yonder, order management will also be increasingly handled via AI, with logarithms forecasting sales quantities and calculating, for example, whether it is more economical to restock a warehouse or to reduce quantities and to split production slots for this. Using AI, these calculations can be performed for every single product, in every size and colour. "These considerations are so complex that they are only possible in an automated way", says Thiede. Ultimately, AI wants to help fashion retailers to support their gut feeling with value-driven analysis, especially in view of the increasing speed of collection cycles and processes.

Digitisation as a growth market

Retail technology is a trending topic. Eurocis announced an increase in exhibitor numbers by four percent to 482 exhibitors. According to the organisers, there have also been more international exhibitors, with numbers rising from 29 percent last year to 39 percent this year. In total, about 12,000 visitors were expected. The next EuroCIS will take place together with store construction fair EuroShop from 16 to 20 February 2020.

          QFC forges new partnerships in France      Cache   Translate Page      

The Qatar Financial Centre (QFC), one of the world’s leading and fastest growing onshore business and financial centres, signed two Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with Paris EUROPLACE and Finance Innovation, to support the growth of Qatar’s booming digital industry.

Paris EUROPLACE is responsible for promoting and developing the Paris financial marketplace. Finance Innovation was launched by the French Ministry for the Economy and Finance in 2007 to stimulate the Paris financial centre, and encompasses 480 member organisations and companies.

The agreements aim to support the development of the digital industry in Qatar, the exchange of expertise in innovation trends, cross-promoting start-ups in France and Qatar, as well as developing appropriate incentive packages to attract international and local companies operating in the digital and technology industry to establish a long-term presence in Qatar. The signing ceremonies were attended by H.E. Sheikh Ali bin Jassem Al Thani, Ambassador for the State of Qatar to France, Yousuf Mohamed Al-Jaida, CEO, QFC Authority, Sheikha Alanoud Bint Hamad Al-Thani, Managing Director, Business Development, QFC Authority, as well as other QFC officials and high-level executives of Paris EUROPLACE and Finance Innovation.

Additionally, QFC officials addressed the audience of the WISE@Paris Summit, which is a Qatar Foundation Initiative. The event gathered 800 French, European and international stakeholders, among them political decision makers, social entrepreneurs, innovators, NGOs and students, to discuss and collaborate on actionable and innovative solutions in education, and was sponsored by the QFC. The QFC’s attending delegation was led by Yousuf Mohamed Al-Jaida, Chief Executive Officer, QFC Authority who provided a keynote speech at the WISE Summit reception, and included Sheikha Alanoud Bint Hamad Al-Thani, Managing Director of Business Development, QFC Authority – who provided the keynote speech to a UNESCO panel titled “A Future of Work For All”, which was held in Station F - the world’s largest business incubator.

On his part, H.E Ambassador Sheikh Ali Bin Jassim Al-Thani, made a special reference to the Strategic Dialogue declaration of intent which has been signed earlier this month in Doha between the State of Qatar and France. He stressed that signing this MOU, between QFC and Paris EUROPLACE and Finance Innovation, is in line with the letter and spirit of the said Agreement, and considered that signing the MOU is a testimony to the strategic relations between the State of Qatar and France. H.E the Ambassador talked also about the importance of the MOU, in consolidating the strategic relations between the State of Qatar and France.

He expressed his confidence that signing the MOU will further improve the economic relations between the two countries. He added that relations between our two countries will see further progress in the near future not only in the economic field but in other fields as well and especially in culture. In this regard, H.E Al-Thani said that we will soon celebrate the Qatar-France cultural year 2020 where the two countries will hold and share various cultural activities. He concluded by saying that these cultural activities will send a clear message that relations between Qatar and France are not limited to economic interests but much deeper and more diversified.

QFC forges new partnerships 2 [qatarisbooming.com].jpg

Yousuf Mohamed Al-Jaida, Chief Executive Officer, QFC Authority said: “The digitalisation of the economy is a key component of Qatar’s ambitious national initiatives and the Qatar Financial Centre’s mandate, both of which aim to enable further economic diversification. We are confident that by partnering with Paris EUROPLACE and Finance Innovation we can jointly contribute towards the continued success of the digital industry in Qatar. We have also recently announced our new strategy which emphasises key sectors including the digital industry, and these new partnerships follow agreements with key local stakeholders including the Ministry of Transport and Communication as well as the Communication Regulatory Authority.”

Sheikha Alanoud Bint Hamad Al-Thani, Managing Director, Business Development QFC Authority said: “Our agreements with Paris EUROPLACE and Finance Innovation are yet another indication of the Qatar Financial Centre’s commitment to the important European and French markets. By leveraging the expertise of these institutions, particularly in the FinTech industry, we are confident that we can contribute significantly to the growth of the sector in Qatar.”

Arnaud de Bresson, CEO, Paris EUROPLACE expressed: “The Paris financial center and its stakeholders have developed close relations with Qatar financial market players since more than 10 years. The signature of the MOU is an important step to accelerate our cooperation in different sectors such as investment banking, infrastructure financing, asset management but also, in financial innovation, based on a strong support to the Fintechs, particularly in the most innovative fields, Blockchain, AI, new payment solutions…”

Joelle Durieux, CEO, Finance Innovation said: “We are excited about our partnership with QFC and the ample opportunities it will provide to our local startups. Doha is one of the fastest growing FinTech markets and Qatar Financial Centre Authority has paved the way for SMEs to develop and test their products within an internationally-recognised regulatory framework and a robust financial ecosystem. This will ultimately allow French startups to expand their presence into the MENA region and explore further prospects for growth.”

Omran Al-Kuwari, Chief Executive Officer, Qatar Foundation International, said: “WISE is a response to the necessity of revitalizing education and providing a global platform for the development of new ideas and solutions. It has evolved into a thriving global, multi-sectoral community, which continues to generate fruitful dialogue and productive partnerships.” Stavros Yiannouka, CEO, WISE, said: “We believe that our ideas about the future matter in education. Through these ideas we can proactively address the challenges and opportunities posed by emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and automation in the workplace. And we need to seize this moment to rethink what it means to be human.”

Qatar’s digital infrastructure has already achieved significant international rankings including the first globally in Internet Penetration in 2017, as well as ninth globally in ICT adoption according to the World Economic Forum Global Competitiveness Report 2018, as well as many others. Qatar also recently pledged USD $50 million to Kuwait’s investment fund in technology and digital economy across the region, reiterating its continued commitment to developing the digital industry. The QFC’s new MoU agreements are amongst several initiatives to have been launched to spur the growth of the digital industry in Qatar, such as agreements with the Ministry of Transport and Communications, as well as the Communications Regulatory Authority.

The QFC is an onshore jurisdiction that allows registered companies to enjoy competitive benefits, such as working within a legal environment based on English common law, the right to trade in any currency, up to 100% foreign ownership, 100% repatriation of profits, 10% corporate tax on locally sourced profits, and an extensive double taxation avoidance agreement network with 70+ countries.

          Google rolls out AR effect tools for YouTube Stories      Cache   Translate Page      

MUMBAI: With the overwhelming popularity of Stories feature on social media platforms, the companies are leaving no stones unturned to make it more attractive. Now, Google is rolling out support for its advanced Augmented Reality (AR) effect tools for YouTube Stories while its rival Facebook and Instagram already support AR filters for Stories on their platforms.

The new feature will allow users to add animated masks, glasses, 3D hats and more such objects to their selfies. "To make all this possible, we employ machine learning (ML) to infer approximate 3D surface geometry to enable visual effects and ML pipeline for Selfie AR," Google Artificial Intelligence research engineers Artsiom Ablavatski and Ivan Grishchenko wrote in a blog post on Saturday.

"That way we can grow our dataset to increasingly challenging cases, such as grimaces, oblique angle and occlusions. Dataset augmentation techniques also expanded the available ground truth data, developing model resilience to artefacts like camera imperfections or extreme lighting conditions," the post added.

The company has also claimed that it will use improved "anchoring" process with the new AR effects to make them look more real and responsive. According to the post, it uses a unique set of technologies "that can track the highly dynamic surface geometry across every smile, frown or smirk."

However, YouTube Stories is not available to every user yet as the tech giant launched the feature last year but only to creators with more than 10k subscribers.

          An entrepreneur who's running for president explains how he'd give every American $1,000 a month and solve the 'fake news' problem      Cache   Translate Page      

Andrew Yang

  • Andrew Yang is an entrepreneur, author, and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.
  • He's passionate about providing every American with a universal basic income of $1,000 a month, saying that would help the working class adjust to an increasingly automated economy.
  • Yang recently spoke with INSIDER's politics editor, Anthony Fisher, about universal basic income, foreign policy, and his plans to support local journalism and battle "fake news," remake America's healthcare system, and overcome his low name recognition and get on the nationally televised debate stages starting in June.

Andrew Yang is seeking the 2020 Democratic nomination for president on a platform built on giving every American a universal basic income — which he called a "freedom dividend" — of $1,000 a month. His website outlines an unusually robust and specific set of policies on everything from healthcare to marijuana legalization to paying NCAA athletes.

Yang, 44, is an entrepreneur most notable for founding Venture for America, a fellowship program that matches recent college graduates with startups across the country. He's also the author of "The War on Normal People: The Truth about America's Disappearing Jobs and Why Universal Basic Income is Our Future."

Yang recently spoke with INSIDER's politics editor, Anthony Fisher, about universal basic income, foreign policy, and his plans to support local journalism and battle "fake news," remake America's healthcare system, and overcome low name recognition and get on the nationally televised debate stages starting in June.

Editor's note: This interview has been edited for length and clarity. You can watch a portion of it on "Business Insider Today."

Anthony Fisher: There's a number of high-profile Democratic candidates who are getting immediate, widespread media attention. How do you plan to compete with them?

Andrew Yang: The truth is most Americans are not paying any attention to the 2020 election right now. If they see anything, they just see a graphic with a whole crowd of faces on the TV screen. So people are going to start tuning in in earnest when the debates start, and I'm going to be there. And the great thing is this campaign's growing organically all the time, and we're going to peak when it's most important.

Fisher: How do you plan on getting on the debate stage?

Yang: The Democratic National Committee has already announced that criteria to make the debate stage. We're going to meet both of them, and you only need to meet one.

The first criteria is polling at 1% either nationally or in the early states, and we're already polling at 1% nationally, according to Monmouth. And the second criteria is getting 65,000 individual contributors by May 15. We're at about 46,000. We're getting another 1,500 a day and should be past the 65,000-donor threshold in about a month.

So I'm going to be on the debate stage in June and July.

Andrew Yang 2020

Fisher: What's the one issue that you'd like to be known for?

Yang: We're in the midst of automating away the most common jobs in our economy. And the reason why Donald Trump's our president today is that we automated away 4 million manufacturing jobs in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Missouri, Iowa, all the swing states. And we're about to do the same thing to millions of retail jobs, call-center jobs, fast-food jobs, truck-driving jobs, and on and on.

So my signature policy proposal's that every American should receive $1,000 a month in a freedom dividend to be able to make adjustments for the future and manage this transition.

Fisher: So that's universal basic income. Why do you think that would be better than, say, a jobs guarantee?

Yang: Well, a universal basic income is much, much easier to administer and much more powerful and effective to getting resources into people's hands.

Let's say tomorrow the federal government said, "We're going to administer a jobs guarantee." Does that mean millions of Americans will wake up and say, "Oh, I know where I'm going: I'm going to go to that job." Of course not. You'd have to set up this massive bureaucracy and infrastructure. What are the jobs? What if someone doesn't like their job? What if someone's not working out? Is this really the way we want Americans to have to be able to feed themselves?

So if you're going to make a move and you're going to make it actually work on a reasonable timeframe, a universal basic income is a much more powerful and effective way to go.

Read more: Meet the Democratic businessman who wants to beat Trump in 2020 and give every American a basic income: 'Donald Trump gives entrepreneurs a bad name'

Fisher: You've proposed several initiatives built around massive cash infusions for journalism, especially local journalism. Can you talk a little bit about that?

Yang: Over 1,200 local newspapers have gone out of business in the past number of years because they relied upon classified ads that now no longer exist in the age of Craigslist. So the local papers die and then democracy does not function as well, because if you have no idea what's happening in your town, how can you vote? Studies have shown that in those situations voters tend to go more towards extremes, and democracy suffers. So if you believe in democracy, then you have to believe in local journalism.

Local journalism does not have any market support right now. We as a country should come together and say, "We need to find a new business model" — let's say a public-private partnership that's operating in conjunction with local organizations, perhaps the local library, perhaps some of the local businesses or the municipal government.

If we think journalism is important — if we think democracy's important — we should come up with a new sustainable runway for these newspapers.

Fisher: You've also proposed the creation of a Federal Communications Commission ombudsman that would punish news outlets for running "fake news." Can you talk a little bit about that?

Yang: If you look at the threats to our democracy, one of them is rampant misinformation.

It's one thing to make a mistake — we all make mistakes — but it's another thing to purposely try and misinform a segment of the American public to undermine our democracy. And right now, foreign actors are doing that. We know that the Russians have tens of thousands of bots that are just spreading various rumors.

We can't just throw up our hands and say, "Well, I guess that's just the way it's going to be." You need to have some sort of penalty for purposely spreading false information. The British already do this: They already have an ombudsman who comes and says, "This stuff was untrue, and you knew it was untrue," and then there's some sort of penalty associated with that.

Fisher: The FCC inherently has a political tilt. It has five commissioners, and whichever party the president is in, three will be from that party. What would you say to someone concerned about the idea of an FCC ombudsman being subject to political interests and biases?

Yang: You have to gauge various risk-reward scenarios. What's the greater risk at this point: that we just aren't sure what's true, or that there's going to be some government agency that somehow becomes overly politicized to a point where it somehow washes out all objective journalism? I suggest the first one is a much more real concern right now. And at this point with the internet, it'd be very, very hard for any government agency to do more than just nibble at the edges of a particular set of political viewpoints.

Fisher: Even under a Trump administration which regularly disparages legitimate news outlets as fake news? If Trump had an ombudsman available to him, would there be the possibility of abusing that authority?

Yang: I struggle to see it. Let's say that this ombudsman then went and said, "Hey, New York Times, you reported on this," and The New York Times was like, "It's actually true." It's not that there's no process involved — as long as you can present the facts and say, "Our reporting is objective," then it's not like you're just going to be arbitrarily punished. As you said, it's not perfect.

Fisher: There was a BuzzFeed News story earlier this year that seemed to implicate the president in impeachable crimes. Then Robert Mueller's office took the extraordinary step of saying the story is not accurate. If Trump had the power to say that is fake news, again, could an FCC ombudsman for fake news be something that could be abused by a bad actor in office?

Yang: I think that the potential for that sort of abuse is much lower than people imagine. This is not an age where there are three or four TV networks — at this point, there are tens of thousands of news outlets, and it would be virtually impossible for the government to meaningfully suppress journalism.

Fisher: You've proposed sunsetting old laws. Can you talk a little bit about why this issue is important to you?

Yang: America's legal code is filled with laws that are written and then never go away. Some of these laws stopped making sense years ago, but there's just no mechanism to reexamine them and say, "Does this regulation still make sense? Does it still serve a useful public purpose?"

So if laws are important, then they would be renewed. But if a law has outlived its usefulness, then there should be some kind of mechanism for us to examine it and say, "This law shouldn't be on the books anymore because it doesn't make any sense."

Fisher: You're for "Medicare for All," but you've also described the ideal system as one that provides "holistic care." Can you explain what that is?

Yang: We're in the worst of all situations, where we're spending twice as much as other countries on healthcare for the worst results.

As a CEO and business owner, I know our healthcare system makes it harder to hire. It makes it harder to treat people as full-time employees, because you always want to just treat them as contractors. It makes it harder to start a business. It makes it harder for people to switch jobs.

Right now it's this massive impediment on our economy, and it's immoral, the fact that if we get sick or injured we're more stressed out about trying to navigate the system than we are with getting well. We need to move to a single-payer system, particularly because right now 94% of new jobs are temporary gig or contract jobs — they don't have healthcare benefits. So tying healthcare to employment makes less and less sense.

In terms of holistic medicine, there are different approaches to getting well. And it's not that there's any one discipline that has all the answers. So if someone wants to seek care from a practitioner or a discipline that may work for them, they should have the freedom to do so.

Fisher: To touch on foreign policy: We still have a military presence in Afghanistan, Iraq, as well as a small presence in Syria. As president, how would you manage the military in these hotspots?

Yang: I think we have to examine each of them, and if we have forces there, we ask, "What are they accomplishing? What is the timeframe? How does it improve upon our ability to achieve certain goals?" And then if you reach a conclusion that we are not actually going to further our goals, then you pull them out to the extent possible.

In the big picture, the US has deluded itself into thinking it could get things done in various parts of the world that have ended up costing hundreds of billions of dollars and thousands of American lives and tens of thousands of civilian lives, sometimes to very unclear benefits. So one of my big ideas is going to try to be more restrained and judicious in our foreign policy.

I think our foreign policy actually reflects how we're doing at home, and we're not doing well at home. If you look at our numbers domestically, our life expectancy is declining for the last three years because of a surge in suicides and drug overdoses — like, the depths of despair, mental-health crises. We're falling apart and disintegrating at home. And so our foreign policy ends up seeming unreliable and erratic to many of our long-standing allies, and those things are very much connected.

To me, the way we become stronger abroad and have a more sustained foreign-policy agenda is if we're more strong and whole at home.

Fisher: Another foreign-policy hotspot that is becoming an issue for quite a few 2020 candidates is the crisis in Venezuela. As president, would you recognize Juan Guaidó as Venezuela's interim president?

Yang: My goal as president would be to help assist the Venezuelan people in any way we can — any sort of humanitarian intervention that would help ease the suffering.

I do not think it's the US's place to engage in regime change. Our track record on making decisions for other countries is very, very uneven at best. So certainly if there's anything we can do to support on a humanitarian level, I'd be eager to do it, but I don't think we should be choosing other nations' leaders.

Fisher: To be clear, the National Assembly, which is basically the last legitimately democratically elected body in Venezuela, decided that Guaidó is the legitimate leader of the country. And the United States, along with about 50 other countries, have agreed to recognize him as such. As US president, would you recognize Guaidó as Venezuela's interim president?

Yang: Yes, I'd recognize him. I just wouldn't militarily intervene to depose Nicolás Maduro and insert him.

Fisher: Most Americans aren't familiar with you at this point. What do you want them to know about you as a person?

Yang: I think the main thing is that I'm a parent. I'm running for office because I see what's happening to our country in terms of artificial intelligence's near-term impact on American workers, and I don't want to raise my kids in a country that is falling apart — I want to raise them in a country that I'm still excited about and proud of, that resembles the country I grew up in myself and the country my parents came here to form a better life for myself and my brother.

The big theme of this era is that if we continue to see ourselves as inputs into a machine of capital efficiency, we're going to lose on an epic, historic, catastrophic scale to artificial intelligence, software, robots, and things that can do things much more cheaply and efficiently than any of us can. It's not that a radiologist was somehow bad at school; it's just that artificial intelligence can see shades of gray that human eyes cannot and can reference millions of films.

So we're in a race right now that we cannot win, and our only path forward is to start reshaping our economy around us — make it so that the economy serves us instead of us being inputs into the machine.

If we succeed in this, then we can give rise to a human-centered economy, a trickle-up economy, from people, families, and communities up. It would be an immense catalyst to entrepreneurship and arts and creativity and service and humanities and nurturing and everything else — if we were just to start valuing ourselves intrinsically and declare a dividend for all Americans of $1,000 a month.

          An entrepreneur who's running for president explains how he'd give every American $1,000 a month and solve the 'fake news' problem      Cache   Translate Page      

Andrew Yang

  • Andrew Yang is an entrepreneur, author, and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.
  • He's passionate about providing every American with a universal basic income of $1,000 a month, saying that would help the working class adjust to an increasingly automated economy.
  • Yang recently spoke with INSIDER's politics editor, Anthony Fisher, about universal basic income, foreign policy, and his plans to support local journalism and battle "fake news," remake America's healthcare system, and overcome his low name recognition and get on the nationally televised debate stages starting in June.

Andrew Yang is seeking the 2020 Democratic nomination for president on a platform built on giving every American a universal basic income — which he called a "freedom dividend" — of $1,000 a month. His website outlines an unusually robust and specific set of policies on everything from healthcare to marijuana legalization to paying NCAA athletes.

Yang, 44, is an entrepreneur most notable for founding Venture for America, a fellowship program that matches recent college graduates with startups across the country. He's also the author of "The War on Normal People: The Truth about America's Disappearing Jobs and Why Universal Basic Income is Our Future."

Yang recently spoke with INSIDER's politics editor, Anthony Fisher, about universal basic income, foreign policy, and his plans to support local journalism and battle "fake news," remake America's healthcare system, and overcome low name recognition and get on the nationally televised debate stages starting in June.

Editor's note: This interview has been edited for length and clarity. You can watch a portion of it on "Business Insider Today."

Anthony Fisher: There's a number of high-profile Democratic candidates who are getting immediate, widespread media attention. How do you plan to compete with them?

Andrew Yang: The truth is most Americans are not paying any attention to the 2020 election right now. If they see anything, they just see a graphic with a whole crowd of faces on the TV screen. So people are going to start tuning in in earnest when the debates start, and I'm going to be there. And the great thing is this campaign's growing organically all the time, and we're going to peak when it's most important.

Fisher: How do you plan on getting on the debate stage?

Yang: The Democratic National Committee has already announced that criteria to make the debate stage. We're going to meet both of them, and you only need to meet one.

The first criteria is polling at 1% either nationally or in the early states, and we're already polling at 1% nationally, according to Monmouth. And the second criteria is getting 65,000 individual contributors by May 15. We're at about 46,000. We're getting another 1,500 a day and should be past the 65,000-donor threshold in about a month.

So I'm going to be on the debate stage in June and July.

Andrew Yang 2020

Fisher: What's the one issue that you'd like to be known for?

Yang: We're in the midst of automating away the most common jobs in our economy. And the reason why Donald Trump's our president today is that we automated away 4 million manufacturing jobs in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Missouri, Iowa, all the swing states. And we're about to do the same thing to millions of retail jobs, call-center jobs, fast-food jobs, truck-driving jobs, and on and on.

So my signature policy proposal's that every American should receive $1,000 a month in a freedom dividend to be able to make adjustments for the future and manage this transition.

Fisher: So that's universal basic income. Why do you think that would be better than, say, a jobs guarantee?

Yang: Well, a universal basic income is much, much easier to administer and much more powerful and effective to getting resources into people's hands.

Let's say tomorrow the federal government said, "We're going to administer a jobs guarantee." Does that mean millions of Americans will wake up and say, "Oh, I know where I'm going: I'm going to go to that job." Of course not. You'd have to set up this massive bureaucracy and infrastructure. What are the jobs? What if someone doesn't like their job? What if someone's not working out? Is this really the way we want Americans to have to be able to feed themselves?

So if you're going to make a move and you're going to make it actually work on a reasonable timeframe, a universal basic income is a much more powerful and effective way to go.

Fisher: You've proposed several initiatives built around massive cash infusions for journalism, especially local journalism. Can you talk a little bit about that?

Yang: Over 1,200 local newspapers have gone out of business in the past number of years because they relied upon classified ads that now no longer exist in the age of Craigslist. So the local papers die and then democracy does not function as well, because if you have no idea what's happening in your town, how can you vote? Studies have shown that in those situations voters tend to go more towards extremes, and democracy suffers. So if you believe in democracy, then you have to believe in local journalism.

Local journalism does not have any market support right now. We as a country should come together and say, "We need to find a new business model" — let's say a public-private partnership that's operating in conjunction with local organizations, perhaps the local library, perhaps some of the local businesses or the municipal government.

If we think journalism is important — if we think democracy's important — we should come up with a new sustainable runway for these newspapers.

Fisher: You've also proposed the creation of a Federal Communications Commission ombudsman that would punish news outlets for running "fake news." Can you talk a little bit about that?

Yang: If you look at the threats to our democracy, one of them is rampant misinformation.

It's one thing to make a mistake — we all make mistakes — but it's another thing to purposely try and misinform a segment of the American public to undermine our democracy. And right now, foreign actors are doing that. We know that the Russians have tens of thousands of bots that are just spreading various rumors.

We can't just throw up our hands and say, "Well, I guess that's just the way it's going to be." You need to have some sort of penalty for purposely spreading false information. The British already do this: They already have an ombudsman who comes and says, "This stuff was untrue, and you knew it was untrue," and then there's some sort of penalty associated with that.

Fisher: The FCC inherently has a political tilt. It has five commissioners, and whichever party the president is in, three will be from that party. What would you say to someone concerned about the idea of an FCC ombudsman being subject to political interests and biases?

Yang: You have to gauge various risk-reward scenarios. What's the greater risk at this point: that we just aren't sure what's true, or that there's going to be some government agency that somehow becomes overly politicized to a point where it somehow washes out all objective journalism? I suggest the first one is a much more real concern right now. And at this point with the internet, it'd be very, very hard for any government agency to do more than just nibble at the edges of a particular set of political viewpoints.

Fisher: Even under a Trump administration which regularly disparages legitimate news outlets as fake news? If Trump had an ombudsman available to him, would there be the possibility of abusing that authority?

Yang: I struggle to see it. Let's say that this ombudsman then went and said, "Hey, New York Times, you reported on this," and The New York Times was like, "It's actually true." It's not that there's no process involved — as long as you can present the facts and say, "Our reporting is objective," then it's not like you're just going to be arbitrarily punished. As you said, it's not perfect.

Fisher: There was a BuzzFeed News story earlier this year that seemed to implicate the president in impeachable crimes. Then Robert Mueller's office took the extraordinary step of saying the story is not accurate. If Trump had the power to say that is fake news, again, could an FCC ombudsman for fake news be something that could be abused by a bad actor in office?

Yang: I think that the potential for that sort of abuse is much lower than people imagine. This is not an age where there are three or four TV networks — at this point, there are tens of thousands of news outlets, and it would be virtually impossible for the government to meaningfully suppress journalism.

Fisher: You've proposed sunsetting old laws. Can you talk a little bit about why this issue is important to you?

Yang: America's legal code is filled with laws that are written and then never go away. Some of these laws stopped making sense years ago, but there's just no mechanism to reexamine them and say, "Does this regulation still make sense? Does it still serve a useful public purpose?"

So if laws are important, then they would be renewed. But if a law has outlived its usefulness, then there should be some kind of mechanism for us to examine it and say, "This law shouldn't be on the books anymore because it doesn't make any sense."

Fisher: You're for "Medicare for All," but you've also described the ideal system as one that provides "holistic care." Can you explain what that is?

Yang: We're in the worst of all situations, where we're spending twice as much as other countries on healthcare for the worst results.

As a CEO and business owner, I know our healthcare system makes it harder to hire. It makes it harder to treat people as full-time employees, because you always want to just treat them as contractors. It makes it harder to start a business. It makes it harder for people to switch jobs.

Right now it's this massive impediment on our economy, and it's immoral, the fact that if we get sick or injured we're more stressed out about trying to navigate the system than we are with getting well. We need to move to a single-payer system, particularly because right now 94% of new jobs are temporary gig or contract jobs — they don't have healthcare benefits. So tying healthcare to employment makes less and less sense.

In terms of holistic medicine, there are different approaches to getting well. And it's not that there's any one discipline that has all the answers. So if someone wants to seek care from a practitioner or a discipline that may work for them, they should have the freedom to do so.

Fisher: To touch on foreign policy: We still have a military presence in Afghanistan, Iraq, as well as a small presence in Syria. As president, how would you manage the military in these hotspots?

Yang: I think we have to examine each of them, and if we have forces there, we ask, "What are they accomplishing? What is the timeframe? How does it improve upon our ability to achieve certain goals?" And then if you reach a conclusion that we are not actually going to further our goals, then you pull them out to the extent possible.

In the big picture, the US has deluded itself into thinking it could get things done in various parts of the world that have ended up costing hundreds of billions of dollars and thousands of American lives and tens of thousands of civilian lives, sometimes to very unclear benefits. So one of my big ideas is going to try to be more restrained and judicious in our foreign policy.

I think our foreign policy actually reflects how we're doing at home, and we're not doing well at home. If you look at our numbers domestically, our life expectancy is declining for the last three years because of a surge in suicides and drug overdoses — like, the depths of despair, mental-health crises. We're falling apart and disintegrating at home. And so our foreign policy ends up seeming unreliable and erratic to many of our long-standing allies, and those things are very much connected.

To me, the way we become stronger abroad and have a more sustained foreign-policy agenda is if we're more strong and whole at home.

Read more: Success in America has nothing to do with hard work — and we're in the middle of a 'war on normal people'

Fisher: Another foreign-policy hotspot that is becoming an issue for quite a few 2020 candidates is the crisis in Venezuela. As president, would you recognize Juan Guaidó as Venezuela's interim president?

Yang: My goal as president would be to help assist the Venezuelan people in any way we can — any sort of humanitarian intervention that would help ease the suffering.

I do not think it's the US's place to engage in regime change. Our track record on making decisions for other countries is very, very uneven at best. So certainly if there's anything we can do to support on a humanitarian level, I'd be eager to do it, but I don't think we should be choosing other nations' leaders.

Fisher: To be clear, the National Assembly, which is basically the last legitimately democratically elected body in Venezuela, decided that Guaidó is the legitimate leader of the country. And the United States, along with about 50 other countries, have agreed to recognize him as such. As US president, would you recognize Guaidó as Venezuela's interim president?

Yang: Yes, I'd recognize him. I just wouldn't militarily intervene to depose Nicolás Maduro and insert him.

Fisher: Most Americans aren't familiar with you at this point. What do you want them to know about you as a person?

Yang: I think the main thing is that I'm a parent. I'm running for office because I see what's happening to our country in terms of artificial intelligence's near-term impact on American workers, and I don't want to raise my kids in a country that is falling apart — I want to raise them in a country that I'm still excited about and proud of, that resembles the country I grew up in myself and the country my parents came here to form a better life for myself and my brother.

          MIPS 2019 steals the dance floor in Nashville with talk of disruption, innovation and more      Cache   Translate Page      
03/13/2019
Ginger Schlueter

NASHVILLE—Tagged as “Milestone Community Days,” MIPS 2019 explored the intelligent world through the eyes and knowledge of a variety of security professionals, who presented new-found insights. The following paints the landscape of the event in terms of the most discussed highlights, topics and themes. 

Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Cloud and Disruption
Sweeping the world of technology is the mindset of a future filled with evolution to further fuel society’s “we-have-what-we-want-when-we- want-it” mentality by harnessing the power of AI and ML, creating solutions that are disrupting and will further disrupt the industry.

“Disruption has already started; how do you want to respond,” Brian Solis, principal analyst at Altimeter Group, a Prophet company, said during his keynote presentation, questioning the audience. “It’s not about just serving people, but adding value to their lives by giving hope, helping people get closer to achieving their goals, and finishing their everyday tasks faster and more efficiently.”

Milestone and their partners are responding to this disruption by unfolding AI by journeying from the client server to the cloud. The company’s goal is to unpack all of the client server’s capabilities and take a hybrid approach to cloud. VMS data must be deconstructed and able to move between “on prem” or the cloud so that workloads can be available where ever needed.

“Milestone has been investing into the future of cloud for several years, even to the point of sacrificing the development of our own product family,” Tim Palmquist, VP Americas, Milestone Systems, explained. “It will take many years for cloud to catch up with the client server as we know it today.”

The Copenhagen Letter and Clause
This letter was written in 2017 to “everyone who shapes technology today,” allowing people to commit to putting humans before business by adding their full name and email to digitally sign the letter. Those who signed hold themselves and others accountable for putting the following ideas into practice:
•    Tech is not above us.
•    Progress is more than innovation.
•    Let us build from trust.
•    Design open to scrutiny.
•    Let us move from human-centered design to humanity-centered design.

Going along with these commitments, Milestone announced it will be including a “Copenhagen Clause” in its end-user licensing agreements and other legal documents. Incorporating the clause allows for continued conversations around ethics and using technology responsibly.

“Our technology is more powerful today, so consider responsible use,” Palmquist said. “Technology doesn’t know if it’s being used for good or bad; it’s humans’ job to do that.”

Cybersecurity
Always top of mind within the industry, Fredrik Nilsson, VP of the Americas, Axis Communications indicated time is the key to successful cybersecurity.
“When, not if, a cyber security breach happens, how quickly it’s addressed,” he said, is essential to overcoming the damage and getting customers back to full use of the system itself as fast as possible.

Innovation
Innovation takes time, perhaps because creating something new requires change and change is not easy for some. Nevertheless, people have a “drive to solve the ‘broken’ and ‘painful’ with new ideas and solutions,” Solis said. Looking forward leads to innovation while focusing on the past leads to iteration.

A new company is taking innovation seriously by launching their open IoT platform for security cameras at ISC West 2019. SAST. is a fully owned but independent Bosch start-up with an ecosystem of rules and ethical guidelines to ensure data privacy. SAST. partnered with the Open Security & Safety Alliance to create a framework of standards and specifications for common components—operating systems, IoT infrastructure, data security and privacy, and improved levels of performance for security and safety solutions.

“We are launching three 2019 pilot programs in transportation, airport and retail, as well as participating in hackathons,” Peter Jelinski, VP partner management, SAST., said.

When it comes to innovation, Fredrik Nilsson, VP of the Americas, Axis Communications, offered this advice: “Don’t over promise and fulfill expectations.”

Market Challenges
With so much data being generated from various devices and sources, it’s important to create value out of this data. However, there are some challenges that Johan Jubbega, president, Open Security & Safety Alliance identified during his keynote that hinders this process.

“With the number of connected devices, the amount of data is skyrocketing,” he said. “There is an increasing need for customization, as one size doesn’t fit all, as well as the need for data security with such a high number of smart, connected devices.”

In general, and across all use cases, data is not being used to its full potential.

Milestone Marketplace
Launched during MIPS 2019 exclusively for Milestone Technology Partners, Marketplace is a centralized knowledge hub of installation guides, demos and other relevant documentation. Partners can also market their applications, hardware or services to potential buyers globally and in return buyers are able to quickly find solutions, connect with sellers and access relevant information.

“Four thousand four hundred minutes have go into building Marketplace,” Susan VonBulow, senior digital project manager, Milestone Systems, told MIPS participants.

Overall, the event celebrated Milestone’s partners with a “forward focused journey on unlocking power and value, promoting the responsible use of technology, and reducing friction,” Palmquist said.

          Biden, Warren and Sanders on Antitrust       Cache   Translate Page      

In the cover story of the November/December 2017 issue of the Washington Monthly, executive editor Gilad Edelman chronicled how anti-monopoly politics, including revived antitrust enforcement, had “seemed to go from fringe argument to a pillar of the Democrats’ economic plan, at least rhetorically, overnight.” (It turned out that years of earnest Washington Monthly articles on the subject played a role.) But, he cautioned, things like merely including a section on corporate concentration in the Democrats’ “Better Deal” agenda were just “baby steps.” It remained to be seen whether the issue would develop into a real campaign topic.

Two things happened this week that suggest the answer may be “yes.” Yesterday, at a rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa, Senator Bernie Sanders, who recently entered the presidential race, delivered a speech about how to improve the fortunes of rural America that heavily emphasized the need to combat agricultural monopolies. The argument sounded strikingly similar to the ones recently made by the Open Markets Institute’s Claire Kelloway, in the Washington Monthly, and Austin Frerick, in the American Conservative. 

Council Bluffs, IA – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders will deliver remarks in Council Bluffs today. See below for full remarks:

Thank you all very much for being here tonight and thank you for being part of a political revolution which will transform America.

Thank you for being part of a campaign which is not only going to win the Democratic nomination, which is not only going to defeat Donald Trump, the most dangerous president in modern American history, but with your help is going to transform this country and, finally, create an economy and government which works for all Americans, and not just the one percent. Today, I want to welcome you to a campaign which says, loudly and clearly, that the underlying principles of our government will not be greed, kleptocracy, hatred and lies. It will not be racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia and religious bigotry. All of that is going to end.
The principles of our government will be based on justice: economic justice, social justice, racial justice and environmental justice. Tonight, I want to welcome you to a campaign which tells the powerful special interests who control so much of our economic and political life that we will no longer tolerate the greed of Wall Street, corporate America and the billionaire class – greed which has resulted in this country having more income and wealth inequality than any other major country on earth.

No. We will no longer stand idly by and allow 3 people in this country to own more wealth than the bottom half of America while, at the same time, nearly 20 percent of our children live in poverty, veterans sleep out on the streets and seniors cannot afford their prescription drugs. We will no longer accept 46 percent of all new income going to the top 1 percent, while millions of Americans are forced to work 2 or 3 jobs just to survive and over half of our people live paycheck to paycheck, frightened to death about what happens to them financially if their car breaks down or their child becomes sick.

Together, we are going to create a political system which is based on the democratic principles of one person – one vote – and end a corrupt system which allows billionaires to buy elections. Yes. We are going to overturn Citizens United and move to public funding of elections.

Today, we fight for a political revolution.

And tonight, I want to offer a very special thanks to the people of the great state of Iowa. In 2016, this is where the political revolution began. Thank you Iowa.

When I first came here to campaign in 2015 not a whole lot of people knew who I was, nobody took our campaign seriously, and we were at 3 percent in the polls. Further, the ideas that we were talking about then were considered by establishment politicians and mainstream media to be “radical” and “extreme” – ideas, they said, that nobody in America would support.

Raising the minimum wage to a living wage. Too radical. Guaranteeing health care to all as a right, not a privilege. Too radical. Creating up to 15 million jobs by rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure with a one trillion dollar investment. Too radical. Aggressively combatting climate change. Too radical. Reforming our broken criminal justice and immigration systems. Too radical. Not taking money from super PACs and the rich. Too radical. Ending the power of super delegates at the Democratic Convention. Too radical.
Well, a funny thing happened in Iowa over that year. On Caucus Night we didn’t win 3% of the vote, we won 50% of the vote and half of the pledged delegates.

And that great start in Iowa led us to win victories in 22 states around the country, 13 million votes, over 1700 delegates at the convention and more votes from young people – black, white, Latino, Asian American and Native American – than Trump and Clinton combined.

And, by the way. Those ideas that we talked about 4 years years ago that seemed so very radical at that time. Well, today, virtually all of those ideas are supported by a majority of the American people and have overwhelming support from Democrats and independents – and they’re ideas that Democratic candidates for president to school board are now supporting.

So Iowa, you helped begin the political revolution in 2016 and, with your help on this campaign, we are going to complete what we started here. We’re going to turn our vision and our progressive agenda into reality.

Today, as we launch our campaign here in Iowa, we say to the private health insurance companies, whether you like it or not, the United States will join every other major country on earth and guarantee healthcare to all people as a right. All Americans are entitled to go to the doctor when they’re sick and not go bankrupt after staying in the hospital. We will no longer accept the absurdity of paying almost twice as much per capita on health care, while we have a lower life expectancy and worse health care outcomes than many other countries.

The goal of health care must be to provide quality care to all in a cost effective way, not tens of billions in profits for the insurance companies and outrageous compensation packages for CEOs. In 2017, the top 65 healthcare CEO’s made $1.7 billion in compensation including: $83.2 million to David Wichmann, the CEO of UnitedHealth Group and 58.7 million to Mark Bertolini, the CEO of Aetna. We need a health care system that invests in disease prevention, doctors, nurses, dentists and rural clinics. We don’t a system which makes insurance companies and their CEOs super rich.

Yes. We will pass a Medicare for all single-payer program. Health care is a right. And, by the way, our legislation improves health care for seniors by providing coverage for dental care, hearing aids and eye glasses.

Today, we say to the pharmaceutical industry, that you will no longer charge the American people the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs, the result being that one out of five Americans cannot afford the prescriptions their doctors prescribe. Seniors in this country should not have to cut their pills in half. The outrageous greed of the pharmaceutical industry is going to end. We are going to lower prescription drug prices in this country.

Today, we say to Walmart, the fast food industry and other low wage employers: Stop paying your employees starvation wages.. Yes. We are going to raise the federal minimum wage to a living wage – $15 an hour. Nobody who works 40 hours a week in this country should live in poverty. And yes. We’re going to make it easier for people to join unions, not harder.

Four years ago, when we talked about the idea of a $15 an hour minimum wage, it seemed like an impossible dream. Well, since then, I’m happy to tell you that 5 states have passed $15 an hour legislation and, just yesterday, the U.S. House Committee on Labor and Education reported out a bill that will raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $15 an hour. And, I believe, that bill will pass the full House within the month.

And by the way. Today we say to corporate America that artificial intelligence and robotics are not going to be used just to throw workers out on the street. This exploding technology must serve human needs, not just corporate profits.

Today we say to the American people that we will rebuild our crumbling infrastructure: our roads, our bridges, our rail system and subways, our airports, our water systems and wastewater plants – and when we do that we create up to 13 million good paying jobs. And let’s be clear. When I talk about infrastructure and clean water we’re talking about strengthening clean water laws so that corporate polluters stop poisoning the drinking water that communities in Iowa and across the country rely on.
Today we say to the parents in this country that you and your kids deserve quality, affordable childcare. The children are our future, and they deserve the best possible head start in life with a high quality, universal pre-K program.

Today, we say to our young people that we want you to get the best education that you can, regardless of the income of your family. Good jobs require a good education. That is why we are going to make public colleges and universities tuition free, and substantially lower the outrageous level of student debt that currently exists. America once had the best educated workforce in the world, and we are going to make that happen again.

Today, we say to our senior citizens, that we understand that you cannot live in dignity when you are trying to survive on $13,000 or $14,000 a year in Social Security benefits. My Republican colleagues want to cut Social Security but we have some bad news for them. We’re not going to cut Social Security benefits. We’re going to expand them.

Today, we say to Donald Trump and the fossil fuel industry that climate change is not a hoax but is an existential threat to our country and the entire planet – and we intend to transform our energy system away from fossil fuel and into energy efficiency and sustainable energy and, in the process, create millions of good paying jobs. All of us have a moral responsibility to make certain that the planet we leave to our children and grandchildren is healthy and habitable.

Today, we say to the prison-industrial-complex that we are going to bring about real criminal justice reform. We are going to end the international embarrassment of having more people in jail than any other country on earth. Instead of spending $80 billion a year on jails and incarceration, we are going to invest in jobs and education for our young people. No more private prisons and detention centers. No more profiteering from locking people up. No more “war on drugs.” No more keeping people in jail because they’re too poor to afford cash bail.

And by the way, when we talk about criminal justice reform, we’re going to change a system in which tens of thousands of Americans every year get criminal records for possessing marijuana, but not one major Wall Street executive went to jail for destroying our economy in 2008 as a result of their greed, recklessness and illegal behavior. No. They didn’t go to jail. They got a trillion-dollar bailout.

Today, we say to the American people that instead of demonizing the undocumented immigrants in this country, we’re going to pass comprehensive immigration reform and provide a path toward citizenship. We’re going to provide legal status to the 1.8 million young people eligible for the DACA program, and develop a humane border policy for those who seek asylum. No more snatching babies from the arms of their mothers.
Today, we say to the top 1 percent and the large profitable corporations in this country – people who have never had it so good — that under a Bernie Sanders administration we’re going to end the massive tax breaks and loopholes that you currently enjoy.

We will no longer accept the absurd situation where large corporations like Amazon, Netflix and General Motors pay nothing in federal income taxes after raking in billions in profits. We will no longer tolerate the situation in which the wealthy and large corporations stash billions in tax havens throughout the world.
Yes, the wealthy and multi-national corporations in this country will start paying their fair share of taxes. We are going to end austerity for working families, and provide some austerity for large, multi-national corporations.

Today, we say to the military-industrial-complex that we will not continue to spend $700 billion a year on the military – more than the next ten nations combined. We’re going to invest in affordable housing, we’re going to invest in public education, we’re going to invest in rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure – not more nuclear weapons and never-ending wars.

Brothers and sisters: We’re going to win this election not because we have a super PAC funded by billionaires. We’re going to win this election because we will put together the strongest grassroots coalition in the history of American politics.

Donald Trump wants to divide us up by the color of our skin, our country of origin, our gender, our religion and our sexual orientation. We are going to do exactly the opposite. We are going to bring our people together – black, white, Latino, Native American, Asian American, gay and straight, young and old, men and women, native born and immigrant.

We are going to bring our people together for an unprecedented grassroots effort, which, I am happy to tell you, already has over one million people signed up as volunteers.
——-
Brothers and sisters: As someone who represents Vermont, one of the most rural states in the country, let me be very honest with you in saying that the U.S. Congress has, for too long, ignored the many crises facing rural America.

In Iowa, in Vermont and all over this country, we have seen more and more young people leave the small towns they grew up in and love, not because they don’t want to stay, but because there are fewer and fewer jobs that pay a living wage.

We have seen schools, churches and community centers shut down, and once vibrant Main Streets become boarded up and deserted.

In Vermont, Iowa and all across rural America, we have seen family farmers go out of business as the prices they receive for their products decline rapidly and large agri-business corporations and factory farming take over agriculture.

We have seen rural hospitals and nursing homes shut down, and not enough doctors to provide the quality health care that rural American deserves.

Tragically, instead of seeing good jobs, education and health care coming into our rural communities, we are far too often seeing despair and depression – and a terrible increase in suicide and opioid addiction.
Brothers and sisters. We need policies for rural America that represent the needs of working people and farmers, not agri-business and multi-national corporations.

Among many other things that need to be done is for the federal government to enforce anti-trust laws, and I will appoint an Attorney General who will do just that.

It is not acceptable to me that the top four packing companies control more than 80 percent of the beef market, 63 percent of the pork market, and 53 percent of the chicken market.

And these numbers understate the situation.

In many communities, there really is only one buyer, which means food producers are at their mercy. They must use that corporation’s feed and livestock, they must accept that corporation’s costs, and they must accept that corporation’s lower and lower payment rates. In many cases, the farmer doesn’t even own the livestock or supplies — they are effectively contract employees who are forced to lease everything, and then get paid an inadequate wage for their very hard work.

With the federal government not enforcing antitrust laws, we have seen mergers like the Bayer-Monsanto approved, giving the two largest conglomerates 78 percent of the corn seed market.

Further, instead of protecting family owned farms, federal support for agriculture is skewed toward huge farms. The top 10 percent of farms currently receive 77 percent of all subsidies.

The time is long overdue for the U.S. government to stand with rural America, and that is exactly what I do.
———-
Brothers and sisters. Over the last two years, and before, you and I and millions of Americans have stood up and fought for justice in every part of our society. And we’ve had some successes.

Together, as billionaires and large corporations have attacked unions, destroyed pensions, deregulated the banks, and slashed wages, we have succeeded in raising the minimum wage to $15 in states and cities across the country. And forced large corporations like Amazon and Disney to do the same. And we have supported teachers who successfully stood up for their kids in strike after strike after strike.

Together, as the forces of militarism have kept us engaged in unending wars, we have stood arm-in-arm to fight back. For the first time in 45 years, we have utilized the War Powers Act to move us forward in ending the horrific Saudi-led war in Yemen.

Together, as so many of our young people have received criminal records for nonviolent offenses, we have fought to end the war on drugs, and have seen state after state decriminalize marijuana, and have seen communities expunge the criminal records of those arrested on these charges.

Let’s be honest: while we have won some victories, our struggles have not always been successful. But I am here to tell you, that because of all the work we have done, we are now on the brink of winning not just an election, but transforming our country.

And let me tell you what that means.

When We are in the White House, we will enact a federal jobs guarantee, to ensure that everyone is guaranteed a stable job. There is more than enough work to be done in this country. Let’s do it.

When We are in the White House we will not only end the decline of rural America, but attack the problem of urban gentrification and build the affordable housing we desperately need all across this country.
When We are in the White House, we will move aggressively to end the epidemic of gun violence in this country and pass the common sense gun safety legislation that the overwhelming majority of Americans want. People who should not have guns, will not have guns.

When We are in the White House, we are going to address not only the disparities of wealth and income that exist overall in our nation, but we will address the racial disparities of wealth and income. We are going to root out institutional racism wherever it exists. Not only will we end voter suppression, we are going to make it easier for people to vote – not harder.

When We are in the White House, we are going to protect a woman’s right to control her own body. That is her decision, not the government’s.

Make no mistake about it, this struggle is not just about defeating Donald Trump. This struggle is about taking on the incredibly powerful institutions that control the economic and political life of this country. And I’m talking about Wall Street, the insurance companies, the drug companies, the military-industrial complex, agri-business, the prison-industrial complex, the fossil fuel industry and a corrupt campaign finance system that enables billionaires to buy elections.

These powerful special interests are going to spend a lot of money to try to defeat us. But we have something they don’t have: the power of the people.

Brothers and sisters: We have an enormous amount of work in front of us. But this what I believe. If we stand together, if we don’t allow Trump and his friends to divide us up; If we stand together as black and white, Latino, Asian American and Native American. If we stand together as gay and straight, men and women, native born and immigrant. If we stand together as rural and urban – north, south, east and west.
If we understand that there really is no such thing as blue state or red state, but states throughout the country where working people are struggling to survive.

If we stand together, this country has an extraordinary future. Let’s make it happen.

 

The other big news came this morning, when fellow candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren made her own antitrust news by unveiling “a regulatory plan aimed at breaking up some of America’s largest tech companies, including Amazon, Google, Apple, and Facebook.” It’s a plan that sounds a bit like former Mark Zuckerberg mentor Roger McNamee’s groundbreaking 2018 Washington Monthly article, which sounded the alarm on the myriad threats posed by the platform monopolies.

Over the past couple of days, we’ve published a couple of articles that could be viewed as favorable to former vice-president Joe Biden, but now it’s time to issue him a warning. The Democratic Party is already on our antitrust bus, and he needs to get on board too, because his record as a senator on these issues is woeful.

People often mark the decline of antitrust enforcement as beginning with the election of Ronald Reagan, but that’s not accurate. The history is more complex, and anti-regulatory reform was a hot topic among a lot of Democrats in the 1970s, including many progressives like Ralph Nader. In a recent Huffington Post piece, Zach Carter takes us back to the history books.

Biden first came to the nation’s capital in 1973 as the junior senator from Delaware, one of the few bright spots for Democrats in a disastrous 1972 election. Like most new members of Congress, he exercised little influence in his early years. At 30, he was barely eligible for Senate service, even younger than Ted Kennedy had been when he took over his brother’s Senate seat in 1962. An inexperienced Biden looked up to Kennedy, revering him almost as an older sibling.

But as Kennedy ascended the Democratic Party ranks, the two men clashed over the party’s economic agenda.

“When the Senator from Massachusetts moved up to the chairmanship of the judiciary committee this year, the hearts of antitrust activists beat faster,” The New York Times noted in 1979. Kennedy had his sights on a sweeping piece of legislation that would block corporate mergers based on the total size of the resulting company ― even if the company was a conglomerate of unrelated businesses, and the merger did not increase a firm’s share of business in a particular market.

But Kennedy almost immediately ran into problems with Biden. When Coca-Cola urged Congress to exempt the soft drink industry from these antitrust regulations, Biden joined Republicans to pass such a bill over the objections of Kennedy and Department of Justice antitrust expert Ky Ewing, who concluded that the bill was “special interest legislation” with “no evidence” to support it.

Antitrust law was an early salvo in what became a quarter-century struggle to shift the Democratic Party’s base of support away from organized labor toward large corporations. The Biden-Kennedy split carried symbolic connotations beyond the policy implications of their individual votes. Where Kennedy wanted to use the Judiciary Committee to continue the old New Deal-era attack on corporate power, Biden became an advocate for corporate interests that had previously been associated with the Republican Party.

As Biden fought Kennedy on the Coca-Cola bill, he was also trying to thwart a Kennedy effort that would have empowered consumers to sue over a broader swath of antitrust violations. In 1977, the Supreme Court issued a controversial ruling that only those who directly purchased products could sue companies for antitrust violations. That meant that manufacturers who sold their goods through wholesalers could only be sued by the wholesalers, not consumers.

Kennedy prepared a bill that would have reversed the court’s decision, but Biden, in the words of The New York Times, “vexed” him by siding with Republicans. Biden was going out on a limb by bucking leadership. Only two of the committee’s 10 Democrats opposed Kennedy on the bill, and the other was Howell Heflin, a conservative Democrat from Alabama. The bill narrowly made it out of committee after Kennedy made some desperate last-minute concessions to win over Republican Sen. Charles Mathias (R-Md.), but the bill never got a floor vote. Kennedy’s broader antitrust ambitions died with it.

Biden wasn’t a lone wolf. President Jimmy Carter and many of the younger Democrats who filed into Washington after Watergate were eager to break with the liberal orthodoxy that had dominated their party’s thinking since the era of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Even Kennedy had successfully pressed Carter to deregulate the airline industry in 1978, beating Ronald Reagan to the era of deregulation by nearly three years.

“A lot of us sit around thinking up ways to vote conservative just so we don’t come out with a liberal rating,” Biden told Washingtonian in 1974. “When it comes to civil rights and civil liberties, I’m a liberal but that’s it. I’m really quite conservative on most other issues.”

If Biden wanted low marks from liberal groups, he got them. By 1978, Americans for Democratic Action, the preeminent liberal watchdog group of the time, gave Biden a score of just 50, lower than its ratings for some Republicans. Kennedy typically scored in the 90s.

 

The latter day villains in the antitrust battle are already revealing themselves in reaction to Senator Warren’s direct challenge to the power of platform monopolies:

Senator Elizabeth Warren proposed in a Medium post on Friday to dismantle so-called Big Tech — Facebook, Google, and Amazon — but antitrust experts found serious flaws in her proposal.

The presidential hopeful is using a “sledgehammer,” that is, breaking companies up, to address problems like data privacy that could be solved in other ways, noted Herbert Hovenkamp, a leading authority on antitrust law.

Because of economies of scale, Hovenkamp noted, bigger companies can offer cheaper products, and forcing them to spin off businesses could hurt consumers.

“Customers are not complaining about Amazon — it’s got some of the highest consumer evaluations in retailing. The story for smaller businesses is a little more mixed. But on balance, a lot of them like dealing with Amazon,” noted Hovenkamp, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania law school.

The tech companies have more money than a Saudi prince, and they have no shortage of “leading authorities on antitrust law” to provide quotes for Yahoo! Finance articles panning the proposals of the Democratic presidential contenders. This is going to be a major battle throughout the 2020 campaign and into the next decade.

Joe Biden was on the wrong side of this battle when it began in a very significant and major way. He’s going to need a “come to Jesus moment” on corporate consolidation and antitrust regulation if he wants to atone for his past and provide leadership for the future.

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Google akhirnya resmi mengucapkan selamat tinggal pada aplikasi chatting besutannya, Allo.

Raksasa internet itu sudah memastikan bahwa layanan Allo akan ditutup pada 12 Maret 2019.

Keputusan Google untuk menghentikan layanan Allo sebenarnya sudah diketahui sejak tahun lalu.

Pada Desember 2018, perusahaan mengungkap bahwa Allo akan dihentikan layanannya pada Maret tahun ini.

Dikutip dari The Verge, Rabu (13/3/2019), layanan Allo akan benar-benar berhenti pada 12 Maret 2019.

Sejak Desember tahun lalu, Google juga sempat memberikan cara melakukan pencadangan (backup) dari aplikasi ini.

Meski menutup Allo, Google sebenarnya masih belum memiliki aplikasi chatting sejenis. Karenanya, belum dapat diketahui mengenai rencana perusahaan tersebut selanjutnya.

Kendati demikian, Google menyarankan pengguna untuk mencoba aplikasi Messages dari Google. Aplikasi ini sebenarnya bukan aplikasi chatting serupa Allo, melainkan aplikasi SMS.

Namun, Google sudah menyertakan sejumlah fitur baru untuk memperkaya pengalaman saat memakai aplikasi ini. Hal itu dimungkinan sebab aplikasi ini sudah mendukung teknologi RCS (Rich Communication Services) yang disebut sebagai masa depan SMS.

RCS sendiri merupakan teknologi yang sebenarnya belum diadopsi oleh banyak perusahaan. Alasannya, selain dukungan di aplikasi yang bersangkutan, operator yang dipakai juga perlu mendukung RCS.

Rilis Dua Tahun Lalu

Sekadar informasi, aplikasi Allo sendiri pertama kali diumumkan pada 2016 saat konferensi developer Google I/O.

Lalu, seminggu kemudian, Google baru benar-benar menghadirkannya bagi pengguna iOS dan Android minggu lalu.

Di awal kehadirannya, Allo dilaporkan berhasil menarik perhatian banyak pengguna. Bahkan, saat masih berusia seminggu aplikasi itu sudah dipasang oleh lebih dari 5 juta pengguna di perangkat Android.

Angka tersebut belum termasuk dengan Allo yang dipasang pada perangkat iOS. Oleh karenanya, jumlah instalasi Allo keseluruhan kemungkinan lebih besar lagi.

Fitur yang Ada di Allo

Lantas apa yang membuat aplikasi ini berbeda dengan aplikasi lain? Salah satu keunggulan Allo adalah hadirnya Google Assistant yang ditanamkan di dalamnya.

Dengan Google Assistant, layanan pesan bisa lebih pintar dibandingkan aplikasi pesan instan lainnya. Google Assistant memungkinkan pengguna memanfaatkan fitur ini untuk berbagai kebutuhan.

Sebab, fitur ini memberikan seluruh informasi yang tersedia dalam internet, seperti perkiraan cuaca, jadwal penerbangan, dan lain-lain.

Untuk menjaga keamanan, aplikasi ini memungkinkan penggunanya untuk mengobrol secara rahasia dengan fitur Incognito Mode yang bisa mengatur durasi sebuah percakapan.

Selain itu, Allo juga menghadirkan berbagai hal lain yang menarik bagi pengguna, seperti berkirim stiker dan lain-lain.

Whether it’s helping to detect cancer cells or drive our cars, artificial intelligence is playing an increasingly larger role in our lives. With Lookout, our goal is to use AI to provide more independence to the nearly 253 million people in the world who are blind or visually impaired.

Now available to people with Pixel devices in the U.S. (in English only), Lookout helps those who are blind or have low vision identify information about their surroundings. It draws upon similar underlying technology as Google Lens, which lets you search and take action on the objects around you, simply by pointing your phone. Since we announced Lookout at Google I/O last year, we’ve been working on testing and improving the quality of the app’s results.

We designed Lookout to work in situations where people might typically have to ask for help—like learning about a new space for the first time, reading text and documents, and completing daily routines such as cooking, cleaning and shopping. By holding or wearing your device (we recommend hanging your Pixel phone from a lanyard around your neck or placing it in a shirt front pocket), Lookout tells you about people, text, objects and much more as you move through a space. Once you’ve opened the Lookout app, all you have to do is keep your phone pointed forward. You won’t have to tap through any further buttons within the app, so you can focus on what you're doing in the moment.

As with any new technology, Lookout will not always be 100 percent perfect. Lookout detects items in the scene and takes a best guess at what they are, reporting this to you. We’re very interested in hearing your feedback and learning about times when Lookout works well (and not so well) as we continue to improve the app. Send us feedback by contacting the Disability Support team at g.co/disabilitysupport.

We hope to bring Lookout to more devices, countries and platforms soon. People with a Pixel device in the US can download Lookout on Google Play today. To learn more about how Lookout works, visit the Help Center.

          Casetext with CARA AI: Keyword-free Legal Research      Cache   Translate Page      
Search for caselaw without using keywords? That’s the goal of CARA AI from Casetext. Casetext, a legal research alternative to Westlaw and Lexis, uses CARA AI (Case Analysis Research Assistant, Artificial Intelligence) to locate relevant case law without keyword searching. Upload a memo or brief into CARA (with or without case citations) and Casetext will provide you with a list of cases tailored to your legal issue and jurisdiction. After analyzing your document, CARA deletes it from its system to preserve confidentiality. I tried CARA using a judicial opinion that was foundational for establishing a point of law in Utah. I haven’t experimented enough to know whether I can rely on CARA exclusively for my research (and when do I ever rely on anything exclusively?), but the results I got back looked really good. CARA plucked out the relevant legal issue (preexisting conditions in workers comp) and gave me cases I had found using Lexis and Westlaw. Casetext has some…

          Artificial Intelligence-aided Receiver for A CP-Free OFDM System: Design, Simulation, and Experimental Test. (arXiv:1903.04766v1 [cs.IT])      Cache   Translate Page      

Authors: Jing Zhang, Chao-Kai Wen, Shi Jin, Geoffrey Ye Li

Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), usually with sufficient cyclic prefix (CP), has been widely applied in various communication systems. The CP in OFDM consumes additional resource and reduces spectrum and energy efficiency. However, channel estimation and signal detection are very challenging for CP-free OFDM systems. In this paper, we propose a novel artificial intelligence (AI)-aided receiver (AI receiver) for a CP-free OFDM system. The AI receiver includes a channel estimation neural network (CE-NET) and a signal detection neural network based on orthogonal approximate message passing (OAMP), called OAMP-NET. The CE-NET is initialized by the least-square channel estimation algorithm and refined by a linear minimum mean-squared error neural network. The OAMP-NET is established by unfolding the iterative OAMP algorithm and adding several trainable parameters to improve the detection performance. We first investigate their performance under different channel models through extensive simulation and then establish a real transmission system using a 5G rapid prototyping system for an over-the-air (OTA) test. Based on our study, the AI receiver can estimate time-varying channels with a single training phase. It also has great robustness to various imperfections and has better performance than those competitive algorithms, especially for high-order modulation. The OTA test further verifies its feasibility to real environments and indicates its potential for future communications systems.

The new robotic limb attached to a four-legged machine#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

In news that will do little to dampen fears of a robot apocalypse, researchers at the University of South Carolina (USC) have built a robo-limb that can teach itself to walk. Inspired by humans, and animals that have evolved to learn the skill within minutes of birth, it's hoped the research will open up new possibilities in the fields of dynamic prosthetics and robots that learn on the fly in unfamiliar environments.

          This AI-enabled Chrome extension hides toxic comments to reduce your stress      Cache   Translate Page      

Online is a big, bad world and not everyone can be thick skinned so as to overlook the trolls, negative comments or insults.

To make your online life slightly stress-free, a Google Chrome extension is taking the help of artificial intelligence.

The new Chrome extension, called Tune, automatically hides comments that its Perspective AI considers toxic. As Cnet reports, the tool works for comments on Reddit, Twitter, YouTube, and Disqus.

Developed by Alphabet’s Jigsaw, Tune’s Perspective AI learns to flag negative comments from thousands of people labelling millions of posts as spam, harassment or obscene content. Once a comment is identified as toxic, Tune can adjust the visibility of such comments.

Website moderators can choose from complete silence in ‘Zen Mode’ to viewing everything without any filter. You can further choose to adjust the comment based on the site. For instance, you can choose to disable the tool for Facebook and enable it for Reddit.

海利·乔·奥斯蒙 Haley Joel Osment生活照 #39:海利·乔·奥斯蒙 Haley Joel Osment

第六感 - 茶香淡然 - 我的博客

 

海利·乔·奥斯蒙特这位美国童星已经证明是他这个年龄段里最优秀的青年演员。他的父亲是演员尤金·奥斯蒙特(Eugene Osment),母亲特里莎·奥斯蒙特(Theresa Osment)是位教师。4岁时海利和父母逛家具店时被导演相中拍摄广告。几个月之后,他在《阿甘正传》(Forrest Gump,1994)里扮演汤姆·汉克斯(Tom Hanks)的儿子,角色虽小但令人印象深刻,同年在电视剧集“Thunder Alley”(1994)里扮演爱德华·阿斯纳(Edward Asner)的曾孙。

  由于他卓越的喜剧表演才能,在“Thunder Alley”后又接演了两部情景喜剧。诺曼·杰威森(Norman Jewison)给了他在电影《妈咪也疯狂》(Bogus,1996)里扮演主角的机会,他轻松的扮演了这个戏剧性的角色。但是,直到热门电影《第六感》(Sixth Sense,1999),这个年轻的演员才被公众所熟知。他对于角色Cole Sear极佳的塑造使之在11岁时就得到了一项奥斯卡的提名以及后来的获奖者迈克尔·凯恩(Michael Caine)的赞美之词“当我知道你获得提名,并看到你的表演时,我就知道你一定会赢。”之后,在《让爱传出去》(Pay it Forward,2000)里他的表演同样精彩。

  除了精彩的表演之外,他也在同行中赢得了相当的荣誉。在史蒂芬·斯皮尔伯格的科幻大片《人工智能》(Artificial Intelligence,2001)中,他担纲主演智能机器人,不负众望,其表现令人惊艳。但之后奥斯蒙特的演艺事业并未出现长足进步,陷入了童星成年后难再走红的怪圈。

    On the other hand, maybe very worried indeed: after all, GPS wasn't used half as much then as it is today. Bill Malik, Trend Micro's vice president told Tom's Guide: "Ports load and unload containers automatically, using GPS to guide the cranes. Public-safety systems incorporate GPS systems, as do traffic-monitoring systems for bridges. Twenty years ago these links were primitive. Now they are embedded. So any impact now will be substantially greater."

     

    To be clear, this doesn't impact all GPS devices. Anything made in the past decade has got a longer fuse, using 13 bits for the week counter meaning a total of 8,192 weeks. That means your Apple Watch won't start misbehaving until 2137, when you'll be long dead (happy Monday!)

  • Bruce Schneier: It’s time for technologists to become lawmakers

    Bruce Schneier, a well-known security guru, called on technologists to become lawmakers and policy makers so countries can deal with issues such as the governance of artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.

    Schneier teaches at the Harvard Kennedy School of government, and he said the place is crawling with economists because they were able to answer many of the questions that arose in the 20th century. But in the 21st century, change is happening faster, and it’s driven by technology.

    “The future is coming,” Schneier said, speaking at the RSA security conference in San Francisco. “It’s coming faster than we think. And it’s coming faster than our existing policy tools can deal with. And the only way to fix this is to develop a new set of policy tools. With the help of the technologists, you understand the technologies.”

Though few users contributed some small fixes, which helped the driver to boot Haiku within QEMU. But there were still few issues that caused device lockups such as USB mouse/keyboard stalls.

    The kernel related issues have been resolved now. Even the devices don’t lock up now and even the performance has been greatly improved to 120MB/s on some USB3 flash drives and XHCI chipsets.

    Users can now try the improved driver which is more efficient. The only remaining issue is a hard-stall on boot with certain USB3 flash drives on NEC/Renesas controllers. The work related to USB2 flash drives on USB3 ports and mounting the flash drives has finished.

          PLDT taps Nokia for 5G development project      Cache   Translate Page      
PLDT Inc. (including Smart Communications and Sun Cellular) has reportedly signed a partnership agreement with Nokia to develop 5G in educational institutions throughout the Philippines, ABS-CBN News reports. Signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU), the parties will look to identify best use cases for 5G, such as artificial intelligence (AI), drones, and internet of things (IoT) applications in schools, colleges and universities. Nokia's end-to-end solution is expected to augment PLDT's 5G pilot, said Nokia senior vice president for Asia Pacific and Japan Jae Won, noting that it will bring ‘an end-to-end capability, meaning right from the devices to the radio network, transfer network and of course security. But the end-to-end capability is why it will make a difference’. Meanwhile, PLDT chairman and CEO Manny Pangilinan said: ‘This is part and parcel of the digital journey that PLDT has embarked since 2015 and continues to this day. The most recent expression to that is this partnership with Nokia and our march into the brave new world of 5G.’ As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, in November 2018 PLDT said it expects to have deployed its 5G networks in the Philippines by H2 2019. Officials of the telco and its mobile division confirmed plans to roll out the new platform in schools, techno-parks and business centres. PLDT-Smart president of technology strategy and transformation, Czar Lopez, was quoted as saying: ‘On 5G it’s not just about speed, it is also about greater capacity and also lower latency’, while fellow VP Mitch Locsin confirmed that the operator is also upgrading its cell towers to accommodate 5G equipment, as well as adding more towers to accelerate the rollout of fifth-generation technologies. The announcement of the 5G launch timetable came in the wake of the operator’s latest successful 5G tests that month, in which Smart said it was able to make the country’s first live 5G-to-5G video call. The call was made between the newly launched Smart 5G cities in Pampanga and Makati using 5G radio and core equipment of Smart’s partners Huawei in Makati and Ericsson in Clark. In a statement, the cellco said the tests showcased the ‘interoperability’ of the new system in a multi-vendor environment, adding that speeds of up to 700Mbps were achieved using Huawei’s 5G equipment in Makati.

Artificial intelligence is becoming an important tool for conservation scientists as new technologies make it easier for researchers to comb through vast amounts of data. A PhD student could “spend months labelling it all by hand before they can get anywhere near answering their hypothesis,” Dan Stowell, a computer scientist at Queen Mary University of London, tells Nature.AI is becoming more accessible, allowing researchers to sort through troves of camera trap images, bird call recordings and other data far more quickly than humans could. Some scientists use browser-based tools. Some outsource the work. Some learn to do it themselves in online classes. AI “doesn’t have to be 100 percent accurate,” says Marc Travers, who is using AI to study bird collisions with power lines on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. “We just have to know exactly how accurate it is.” Read the story in Nature.

Vincent-Pierre Berges, The Obstacle Tower A Generalization Challenge in Vision, Control, and Planning, https://unity3d.com

The rapid pace of research in Deep Reinforcement Learning has been driven by the presence of fast and challenging simulation environments. These environments often take the form of games; with tasks ranging from simple board games, to classic home console games, to modern strategy games. We propose a new benchmark called Obstacle Tower: a high visual fidelity, 3D, 3rd person, procedurally generated game environment. An agent in the Obstacle Tower must learn to solve both low-level control and high-level planning problems in tandem while learning from pixels and a sparse reward signal. Unlike other similar benchmarks such as the ALE, evaluation of agent performance in Obstacle Tower is based on an agent's ability to perform well on unseen instances of the environment.

          Gartner Predicts 3 Digital Business Impacts on PPM      Cache   Translate Page      

If your team or organization has the mindset that continuing with the historical, predigital status quo will be enough to keep operations going, think again. The time to elevate enterprise-level support and coordination across emerging product, program and portfolio management (PPM) capabilities for digital business is now.

Many PPM leaders are facing a digital business reality check

“Frankly, many PPM leaders are facing a digital business reality check,” says Joanne Kopcho, VP Analyst at Gartner. “Large, historical investments in PPM practices and technologies lack the new automation, efficiency and adaptive approaches required to support digital business.”

[swg_ad id="18448"]

Kopcho outlines three key predictions to consider when it comes to digital business demands.

By 2023, technology providers focused on AI, VR and digital platforms will disrupt, and elicit a marked response by, the traditional providers within the PPM market.

Much of the software architecture in the PPM market is stuck in hallmarks of the past, including browser-based user interfaces and archaic database technologies. But these stalwarts are stagnating in the digital age.

“Emerging technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) or virtual reality (VR) will not be realized for at least the next four years for PPM practitioners,” says Kopcho. “This lack of urgency is directly associated with the lack of digital-friendly solutions offered by PPM technology providers, but we’re expecting the newer generation of PPM end users and startup providers to begin applying pressure based on the limitations of today’s PPM tools.”

PPM leaders and software users will remain skeptical of the promises of AI in PPM technology until they experience firsthand how AI can make their lives easier and reduce the amount of administrative work they are required to perform.

Read more: Gartner Predicts the Future of AI Technologies

By 2023, agile PPM will replace project management as the dominant approach for effective enterprise change and outcomes.

Adopting agile work practices will enable organizations to prioritize customer needs and deliver faster results. As the shift from project to product management takes place, there is more emphasis on ongoing product transformation and, in turn, increased user satisfaction.

“PPM leaders should support transformation initiatives by proactively demonstrating an understanding of agile and product management, how the existing way of operating must change, and, most importantly, embracing new roles across digital products in an agile world,” says Kopcho.

Read more: Transform Your Portfolio With 2 Key Project Management Practices

By 2023, 80% of organizations will have an enterprise program management office (EPMO) focused on integrating digital products and programs.

Digital business is altering the role of existing program management offices (PMOs) from operational to strategic, requiring PPM leaders to be effective enablers of strategic execution for the enterprise.

The EPMO will provide collaboration, coordination, and facilitation across product lines, products, programs and portfolios for success. With such qualities within the EPMO, the organization can help orchestrate and achieve continued insight into outcomes, strategic objectives and cross-organizational changes.

“PPM leaders must reinvent PMO processes, embrace new ideas and enhance skill sets to support the digital direction of the CIO and CxOs, or risk being left behind,” says Kopcho.

          How to Manage Customer Service Technology Innovation      Cache   Translate Page      

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in customer service interactions continues apace, making it critical for service leaders to avoid the hype and work with IT leaders to stay focused on the potential business cases.

Customer service is a hotbed for new technology and innovation

Gartner predicts that by 2021, 15% of all customer service interactions globally will be handled completely by AI, an increase of 400% from 2017. But before then — by 2020 — 40% of the bot virtual assistant applications launched in 2018 will have been abandoned as technology adoption converges on fewer apps.

Customer service is a hotbed for new technology and innovation,” said Jeff Schott, Director, Gartner. “However, in today’s ever-evolving technology landscape, innovations threaten to overwhelm even the most progressive service leaders. And shiny new objects quickly lose their luster without a coherent technology strategy — one that is grounded in realistic expectations and a long-term commitment.”

Read more: 4 Trends in Gartner Hype Cycle for Customer Service and Customer Engagement

[swg_ad]

Expect and encourage failure

With all the excitement around bots and virtual customer assistants (VCAs), it’s no wonder that customer service leaders are increasingly optimistic about the possibilities for these technologies. Gartner research shows that deploying bots and VCAs can deliver various benefits to the contact center, including greater capability and scale, faster chat speed and better gatekeeping.

However, developing best practices and realistic expectations will be an ongoing process for many enterprises, and deciding how to manage that process will be critical. The most successful programs will be designed to expect, and even encourage, a certain level of failure.

The key to success with emerging technologies is to enable experimentation and learning

“As we’ve learned from our IT colleagues, the key to success with emerging technologies is to enable experimentation and learning,” added Schott. “Not only does this help to refine your strategy, but also gives you the ability to direct investments where returns are evident.”

Service leaders need to work with their IT counterparts to anticipate and manage failures. Those who do not will either have set expectations too low or will continue to invest in projects with a low likelihood of success even after they should have been discontinued.

Set the strategy

When setting strategy for technology adoption, service leaders must remember to:

  • Manage expectations by setting modest goals for initial projects and by describing projects with accurate terms.
  • Expect, allow and even encourage, experimentation, but never deploy poor-quality solutions to users.  
  • Ensure that chatbots and VCA projects have clear business rationales and objectives, and are not just based on the "coolness" factor.
  • Factor in that while some technologies will work on their own, others will work best in combinations, such as a chatbot in a mobile application, driven by a powerful natural language processing engine.
  • Choose platform development approaches tactically, as the maturation pace of tools will quickly render many current vendors and solution designs obsolete.

          Medtech firm wins Qualcomm challenge for start-ups      Cache   Translate Page      

Bengaluru: Bengaluru-based medtech firm Artelus India Pvt Ltd took home $100,000 after winning chipset maker Qualcomm's challenge for start-ups in India, the company said on Wednesday.

Artelus India focuses on leveraging cutting edge technologies like deep learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to increase the capacity of healthcare providers.

It has developed Diabetic Retinopathy Intelligent Screening System Integrated (DRISTi) -- a deep learning based AI algorithm that reads digital images to detect and identify early signs of diabetic retinopathy that could lead to permanent blindness.

Biometric device maker Mobiusworks Pvt Ltd and medtech firm Chingroo Labs Pvt Ltd -- both based in Bengaluru -- secured first and second runners-up spot, respectively, in the competition called Qualcomm Design in India Challenge 2018.

The first and second runners-up received $75,000 and $50,000, respectively, Qualcomm said.

Launched in 2016, the Qualcomm Design in India Challenge is an incubation programme that encourages start-ups to develop innovative hardware products using Qualcomm's advanced technologies.

With the 2018 edition coming to an end, the programme has supported 39 start-ups with an overall investment of over $12.3 million, the company said.

          Hospitals are failing to execute on an AI and analytics strategy      Cache   Translate Page      

This is an excerpt from a story delivered exclusively to Business Insider Intelligence Digital Health Briefing subscribers. To receive the full story plus other insights each morning, click here.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics are generating significant buzz in the healthcare sector, but among the 93% of hospitals and health systems that have outlined an analytics strategy — just one-third have executed it, according to a survey of 110 senior leaders at hospitals and health systems conducted by HIMSS Analytics and Dimensional Insight.

most health firm executives expect it budgets to swell in 2019

Failing to execute an AI strategy is a missed opportunity for health firms: The majority (57%) of executives at health firms currently deploying predictive analytics expect the tech to save their organization at least 15% over the next five years. 

Here's what it means: Hospitals’ dearth of effective analytics implementations is partly a byproduct of disparate tech solutions and siloed decision making.

  • Hospitals haven’t identified a single tool that satisfies their analytics needs.Hospitals use an average of four analytics tools, and 17% use 10 or more tools. This may stem in part from a lack of mature healthcare analytics offerings on the market, as 42% of health firm execs say there aren't a lot of ready-to-deploy AI and digital health solutions available. Hospitals' patchwork approach to analytics further suggests that there's a lack of strong solutions on the market and may create inefficiencies that impede on executing a successful analytics strategy.
  • And the fragmented nature of analytics-powered decision making across departments may be hindering analytics investments. The majority (58%) of senior provider organization leaders say they can only influence decisions made based on analytics at a departmental or single-hospital basis only, as opposed to across their entire organization. This limited scalability of the insights generated by existing analytics solutions might make providers reluctant to expand analytics investments, as new tech solutions with a narrow use case may be less likely to yield a positive return on investment.

The bigger picture: The gap between hospitals' interest in analytics and knowledge of best practices leaves a lucrative market opportunity for early moving providers and health IT vendors.

Health firms’ top IT priorities in 2019 are accelerating digital health initiatives and investing in AI and analytics, and most (54%) health firms expect that their IT budgets will grow at least 10% this year. Hospitals’ willingness to spend more on analytics suggests that IT vendors that can commercialize an effective software solution will attract a lot of interest.

Meanwhile, early moving providers like Pennsylvania-based health system Geisinger — which cut the time to diagnose internal head bleeding by 96% by implementing an AI algorithm into its radiology workflow — can reap the rewards of being an analytics market leader; becoming an analytics and AI leader now creates an opportunity to form strategic partnerships and commercialize new products down the line.

Here's the industry opinion, as told to Business Insider Intelligence:

“Early on [in providers’ analytics implementations] the best use of third-party vendors is for developing the data architecture that allows you to generate insights from your data . . . and then once you understand how this process works you can bring your data back in house, because it’s expensive to rely on third-party vendors — especially for smaller organizations.” — Griffin Myers, CMO Oak Street Health

          Kongres Forum Humas BUMN di Bandung      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Forum Humas (FH) BUMN menggelar kongres kehumasan bertajuk The Future of PR pada Rabu (13/3/2019). Dalam kesempatan tersebut, Deputi Bidang Infrastruktur Bisnis Kementerian BUMN Hambra mengatakan FH BUMN harus siap menghadapi tantangan Revolusi Industri 4.0.

"Perbankan saja kalau tidak menyesuaikan (dengan Revolusi Industri 4.0) bisa lewat. Dan kami sadar betul bahwa tantang industri 4.0 ini generasi muda kita yang harus kita persiapkan," kata Hambra seusai membuka Kongres dan Munas FH BUMN di Trans Luxury Hotel, Rabu (13/3/2019).

Hambra mengatakan salah satu bentuk kesiapan BUMN untuk menghadapi Revolusi Industri 4.0 ialah dengan gencar merekrut generasi milenial yang memiliki kemampuan terbaik di bidangnya. Karena itu, acara tersebut mengundang banyak milenial muda.

"Makanya hari ini, BUMN begitu intensif melibatkan para generasi milenial dalam program-program pengembangan untuk masyarakat karena kita sadar mereka yang akan menghadapi itu dan itu sudah kami persiapkan sejak sekarang," katanya.

Hambra mengatakan Forum Humas BUMN akan responsif dalam menjawab persoalan yang para humas hadapi di era teknologi big data dan artificial intelligence (Al). Hal ini menurutnya, sesuai dengan tema yang diangkat, yakni "The Future of PR : hadapi Tantangan Humas di Masa Depan"

Pihaknya berharap Forum Humas menjadi ujung tombak bagi Kementerian BUMN dalam memublikasikan semua yang sudah dilakukan oleh BUMN untuk masyarakat dan sebaliknya menginformasikan apa saja yang diharapkan oleh masyarakat kepada BUMN-BUMN yang ada.

"FH BUMN ini bisa menjadi di menjadi corong bagi BUMN untuk bisa memublikasikan apa saja yang sudah dilakukan dan apa saja hal positif yang sudah dilakukan oleh BUMN," ujarnya.

"Kemudian kita bisa menangkal informasi-informasi negatif yang disampaikan oleh pihak-pihak yang mungkin tidak paham atau mengerti tentang BUMN tapi kemudian berbicara tentang BUMN," lanjutnya.

Hambra juga mengatakan forum ini harus menjadi perpanjangan tangan Kementerian BUMN dalam membantu meng-counter berita-berita negatif mengenai BUMN.

Dia mengatakan Forum Humas BUMN juga harus mampu memengaruhi opini publik melalui program dan strategi kehumasannya, agar terbangun pola pikir masyarakat bahwa BUMN hadir untuk negeri dan benar ada untuk masyarakat.

Di akhir wawancara, Hambra juga menyampaikan tentang keadaan masyarakat masa kini yang sering asal share. Menurutnya, hal ini tidak menghargai perjuangan leluhur.

"Zaman sekarang kan kadang sudah ga lihat tuh hoax atau bukan, terima langsung sebar. Harusnya gak boleh ya. Bangsa ini kan karya leluhur kita, kakek-kakek kita yang telah mengkrbankan tanah, harta dan tumlah darah untuk bangsa ini. Kita anak-anak sekarang gak jaga ya dosa besar," tuturnya.

Futurist and author Amy Webb talks about her book, The Big Nine, with EconTalk host Russ Roberts. Webb observes that artificial intelligence is currently evolving in a handful of companies in the United States and China. She worries that innovation in the United States may lead to social changes that we may not ultimately like; in China, innovation may end up serving the geopolitical goals of the Chinese government with some uncomfortable foreign policy implications. Webb’s book is a reminder that artificial intelligence does not evolve in a vacuum–research and progress takes place in an institutional context. This is a wide-ranging conversation about the implications and possible futures of a world where artificial intelligence is increasingly part of our lives.

Intro. [Recording date: February 12, 2019.]

Russ Roberts: My guest is futurist and author Amy Webb.... Her latest book is The Big Nine: How the Tech Titans and Their Thinking Machines Could Warp Humanity.... Your book is a warning about the challenges we face, that we're going to face dealing with the rise of artificial intelligence. What is special about the book, at least in my experience reading about AI [Artificial Intelligence] and worries about artificial intelligence is that it doesn't talk about AI in the abstract but actually recognizes the reality that AI is mostly being developed within very specific institutional settings in the United States and in China. So, let's start with what you call the Big Nine. Who are they?

Amy Webb: Sure. So, what's important to note is that when it comes to AI, there's a tremendous amount of misplaced optimism and fear. And so, as you rightly point out, we tend to think in the abstract. In reality, there are 9 big tech giants who overwhelmingly are funding the research--building the open-source frameworks, developing the tools and the methodologies, building the data sets, doing the tests, and deploying AI at scale. Six of those companies are in the United States--I call them the G-Mafia for short. They are Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, IBM [International Business Machines], and Apple. And the other three are collectively known as the BAT. And they are based in China. That's Baidu, Alibaba, and Tencent. Together, those Big Nine tech companies are building the future of AI. And as a result, our helping to make serious plans and determinations, um, for I would argue the future of humanity.

Russ Roberts: And, just out of curiosity: I don't think you say very much in the book at all about Europe. Is there anything happening in Europe, in terms of research?

Amy Webb: Sure. So, the--you know, there's plenty of happening in France. Certainly in Canada. Montreal is one of the global hubs for what's known as Deep Learning. So this is not to say that there's not pockets of development and research elsewhere in the world. And it also isn't to say that there aren't additional large companies that are helping to grow the ecosystem. Certainly Salesforce and Uber are both contributing. However, when we look at the large systems, and the ecosystems and everything that plugs into them, overwhelming these are the 9 companies that we ought to be paying attention to.

3:18

Russ Roberts: So, I want to start with China. I had an episode with Mike Munger on the sharing economy and what he calls in his book Tomorrow 3.0. And, in the course of that conversation, we joked about people getting rated on their social skills and that those would be made public--how nice people were to each other. And we had a nice laugh about that. And I mentioned that I didn't think that that was an ideal situation--that people would be incentivized that way to be good people: despite my general love of incentives, that made me uneasy. And in response to that episode, some people mentioned an episode of Black Mirror[?]--the video series--and also some things that were happening in China. And I thought, 'Yeh, yeh, yeh, whatever.' But, what's happening in China--it's hard to believe. But, tell us about it.

Amy Webb: Sure. And, let me give you a quick example of one manifestation of this trend, and then sort of set that in the broader cultural context. So, there's a province in China where a new sort of global system is being rolled out. And it is continually mining and refining the data of the citizens who live in that area. So, as an example, if you cross the street when there's a red light and you are not able to safely cross the street at that point--if you choose to anyway, as to jay-walk--cameras that are embedded with smart recognition technology will automatically not just recognize that there's a person in the intersection when there's not supposed to be, but will actually recognize that person by name. So they'll use facial recognition technology along with technologies that are capable of recognizing posture and gait. It will recognize who that person is. Their image will be displayed on a nearby digital--not bulletin board; what do you call those--digital billboard. Where their name and other personal information will be displayed. And it will also trigger a social media mention on a network called Weibo. Which is one of the predominant social networks in China. And that person, probably, some of their family members, some of their friends, but also their employer, will know that they have--they have infracted--they have caused an infraction. So, they've crossed the street when they weren't supposed to. And, in some cases, that person may be publicly told--publicly shamed--and publicly told to show up at a nearby police precinct. Now, this is sort of important because it tells us something about the future of recognition technology and data. Which is very much tethered to the future of artificial intelligence. Now, better known as the Social Credit Score, China has been experimenting with this for quite a while; and they are not just tracking people as they cross the street. They are also looking at other ways that people behave in society, and that ranges from whether or not bills are paid on time, to how people perform in their social circles, to disciplinary actions that may be taken at work or at school, to what people are searching on--you know, on the Internet. And the idea is to generate some kind of a metric to show people definitively how well they are fitting in to Chinese society as Chinese people. This probably sounds, to the people listening to the show, like a horrible, Twilight Zone episode--

Russ Roberts: It sounds like 1984, is what it sounds like to me. It's not like, 'I wonder if that's a good idea.' It's more like, 'Are you kidding me?'

Amy Webb: Yeah. And so like, when I first heard about this, my initial response was not abject horror. I was curious. I was very curious.

Russ Roberts: [?]

Amy Webb: But like, here's what made me curious: Why bother? I mean, China has 1.4 billion people. And if the idea is to deploy something like this at scale, that is a tremendous amount of data. And you have to stop and say to yourself, 'Well, what's the point?' So, this is where some cultural context comes into play. So, I used to live in China. And I also used to live in Japan. And, they are very different cultures, very different countries. One distinctive feature of China is a community-reporting mechanism that is sort of embedded into society. And going back many thousands of years--you know, China is an enormous--it's a huge piece of land. And you've got people living throughout it; in fact, they are so spread apart, you have, you know, significantly different dialects being spoken. So, one way to sort of maintain control over vast masses of people spread out geographically was to develop a culture--sort of a tattle-tale culture. And so, throughout villages, if you were doing something untoward or breaking some kind of local custom or rule, that would get reported--you would get reported. Sort of in a gossipy way. But, you would get reported; and ultimately that person that heard the information would report that on up to maybe a precinct or a feudal manager of some kind, who would then report that up to whoever was in charge of the village or town; and then you would get into some kind of actual trouble. This was a way of maintaining social control. And so if you talk to people in China today, a lot of people are aware of monitoring. What I find so interesting is that at the moment, the outcry that we see outside of China does not match the outcry that I have observed--or actually to the lack of outcry--that I have observed in China. Now, there's one other piece of this really important: This is that using AI in this way ties in to China's Belt and Road Initiative [BRI]. And you might have heard about the BRI. This is sort of a master plan--it's a long-term strategy that helps China optimize what used to be the previous Silk Road--trading route. But it's sort of built around infrastructure. What's interesting is that there's also a digital version of this--the sort of digital BRI--where China is partnering with a lot of countries that are in situations where social stability is not a guarantee. And so, they are starting to export this technology into societies and places where there isn't that cultural context in place. And so, you have to stop and wonder and ask yourself, 'What does it mean for 58 pilot countries to have in their hands a technology capable of mining and refining and learning about all of their citizens, and reporting any infractions on up to authorities?' You know, in places like the Philippines, where free speech right now is questionable, this kind of technology, which does not make sense to us as Americans, may make slightly more sense to people in China, becomes a dangerous weapon in the hands of an authoritative, an authoritarian regime elsewhere in the world.

11:14

Russ Roberts: It reminds me, when you talk about the tattle-tale culture--of course, the Soviets did the same thing. They encouraged people to inform on--telltale sounds like a child reporting an insult. It's a monitoring mechanism by which authoritarian governments keep people in line. And you talk about the lack of outcry. Well, one reason is, is that you are worried that your social score is going to be low. Outcrying is probably not a good idea.

Amy Webb: That's right. That's right.

Russ Roberts: You should mention also, which I got from your book, that: It's not just like it's awkward, it's kind of embarrassing, you have a low score. These scores are going to be--going to be used, or being used?--to deal with people get credit, whether they can travel? Is that correct?

Amy Webb: Right. So, again. It's China. So, we can't be 100% of the information that's coming out, because it's a controlled-information ecosystem. But from what we've been able to gather, in all of the research that I've done, you know--I would suggest that it's already being used. It's certainly being used against ethnic minorities like the Uighurs. But we've seen instances of scoring systems being used to make determinations about school that kids are able to get into. You know, kids who, through no fault of their own may have parents that have run afoul, you know, in some way, and earned demotions and demerits on their social credit scores. So, it would appear as though this is already starting to affect people in China. And, again, my job is to quantify and assess future risk. So, as I was doing all of this research, my mind immediately went to: What are the longer term downstream implications? I think some of them are pretty obvious. Right? Like, some people in China are going to wind up having a miserable life as a result of the social credit score--the social credit score as it grows and is more widely adopted to some extent could lead to better social harmony, I guess; but it also leads to, you know, quashing individual ideas and certain freedoms and expressions of individual thinking. But, the flip side of this is: If it's the case that China has BRI--and it's investing in countries around the world not just in infrastructure but in digital infrastructure like fiber and 5G and communications networks and small cells and all the different technologies, in addition to AI and data, isn't it plausible that some time in the near future, our future trade wars aren't just rhetoric but could wind up in a retaliatory situation where people who don't have a credit score can't participate in the Chinese economy? Or, businesses that don't have credit scores can't do, can't trade. Or countries that don't have--if we think about like a Triple A Bond rating, you know, what happens if this credit scoring system evolves and China does business with, only with countries that have a high-enough score? We could quite literally get locked out of part of the global economy. It seems far-fetched, but I would argue that the signals are present now that point to something that could look like that in the near future.

15:03

Russ Roberts: Well, this is going to be a pretty paranoid show--episode--of EconTalk. So, I'm okay with that kind of fear-mongering, because it strikes me as quite worrisome. And I think we have to be, as you hinted at, you have to be open-minded that maybe this will make a better Chinese society, as defined by them. You know, the Soviets wanted to create a new Soviet man--and woman. They failed. But now, with these tools maybe there will be a new Chinese man and woman who will be harmoniously living with their neighbor, never jaywalking, and never gossiping, and smiling more often. Who knows? But, it's not my first, default thought about how this is going to turn out. I think that--

Amy Webb: No, but you kind of--you have to start with--I want to point out that I am not like a dystopian fiction writer. I'm a pragmatist. So, this--I am not studying all of this for the purpose of scaring people. What I would argue is, I have studied all of this, and used data, and modeled out plausible outcomes; and it is scary. It really is. Because you have to, again, connect the dots between all of this and other adjacent areas that are important to note. The CCP [Chinese Communist Party] in China is--

Russ Roberts: the Communist Party--

Amy Webb: yep--is facing some huge opportunities but also big problems. The Chinese economy may technically be slowing, but it's not a slow economy. There's plenty of growth ahead. And, if that holds--and there's no reason why at the moment it wouldn't--you know, Chinese society is about to go through social mobility at a scale never seen before in modern human history. And as that enormous group of people moves up, they are going to want to buy stuff. They are going to want to travel. So, you know, that potentially causes some problems, because the more wealth that is earned, the more agency people feel, the more opinions they start having about how the government ought to be run. And, you know, the CCP effectively made the current President of China, Xi Jinping, effectively President for life. And 2049--which seems far off but in the grand scheme of things isn't really that far into the future--is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the CCP. China is very good at long-term planning. Now, they've not always made good on fulfilling promises. But they are good at planning.

Russ Roberts: Yes, they are.

Amy Webb: Right? So, I don't see all of this as flashes in the pan, and 'AI's kind of a hot buzzy topic right now.' I'm looking at the much longer term and the much bigger picture. That's what makes me kind of concerned.

18:02

Russ Roberts: I think that's absolutely right. One other institutional detail to make clear for listeners is that the Chinese Internet is roped off, to some extent--to quite a large extent. They are developing their own tools and apps. And, talk about the three companies in China that are working on AI and how they work together in a way that American companies are not.

Amy Webb: So, here's another interesting facet of the Big Nine and AI is on a sort of a dual-developmental track. In China, Baidu, Alibaba, and Tencent were all formed sort of in the late 1990s, early 2000s; and their origin stories are not all that different from our big, modern tech giants like Amazon and Google and Apple. The key distinction is that our big tech companies were formed out for the most part in Seattle, Redmond, and Cupertino--California and San Francisco. Where, the ecosystem was able to blossom: there's plenty of competition. And there was plenty of talent. California has fairly lenient--in some ways--fairly lenient employer/employee laws which has made it very easy for talent to move between companies. And, if you are somebody who studies innovation, you know, the sort of lack of--the limited or lack of regulation, the ability for people to move around--

Russ Roberts: letting people make enormous amounts of money when they succeed and losing all of it when they fail--

Amy Webb: Right. Right. Right. But, the lack of safety net, the lack of a central, federal authority, if you will, is partly what enabled these companies to grow. And to grow fast. And to grow big. Which is why we also see a lot of overlap. So, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and IBM [International Business Machines] own and maintain the world's largest cloud infrastructure. So, if you own a website or you are a business owner or you are making a phone call, at some point you are accessing one of their clouds. You know--we have competing, for the most part, we have competing operating systems for our mobile devices. For the most part, we still have competing email systems. And that's because without a central authority dictating one of the companies was going to do which thing, they all sort of did it. They went alone. When it went on their own and built their own things. So, now we have tremendous wealth concentrated among just a few companies who own the lion's share of patents; who are funding most of the research. And, for the most part, Silicon Valley and Washington, D.C. have an antagonistic relationship. That is not the case in China. So, in China, when the big tech companies were being formed there, you don't do anything in China without also in some way creating that business in concert with Beijing--with the government. You've got to pull patents--I'm sorry--you've got to pull permits. You have to abide by various regulations and laws. People are checking in on you. So, while Baidu, Alibaba, and Tencent may be independent financial organizations, in practical terms they are very much working in lockstep with Beijing. Alibaba, for those of you not familiar with the company, is very similar to Amazon. So, it's a retail operation. Tencent is very similar to our social media: so, sort of Twitter meets gaming and chat. And, I'm sorry--and Baidu is sort of search--is the sort of Google-esque company of the bunch. When China--when the Chinese government decided that AI was going to be a central part of its future plans--and this was decided years ago--it also decided that Tencent was going to focus on health; that Baidu was going to focus on cloud; and that Alibaba was going to focus on various different data aspects. I'm sorry; and Baidu was also going to focus on AI and transportation. So, it's not as though these companies came to these additional areas of research and work on their own. It was centrally coordinated. And that's a really, really important thing to keep in mind. If we've got a central government, a powerful government that is now--that has this long-term vision and is centrally coordinating, what's happening at a top level with the research and the movements of these companies, suddenly you have a streamlined system where you don't have arguments about regulation; you don't have the companies at each other's throats--like we've seen in the United States, Apple suddenly calling for sweeping privacy regulations because, to be fair, it's sort of--they are already far ahead and it gives them a competitive advantage. You don't see all that infighting in China. So, we have some fundamental differences. And the real challenge is that while we're trying to sort all this out in the United States, you have a streamlined central authority with three very powerful companies who are all now collaborating in some way on the future. In addition to a bunch of other top-level government initiatives to repatriate academics; to bring back top AI people; but also to do things like start educating kindergarteners about AI. There is a textbook that is going to roll out this year throughout China teaching kindergarteners the fundamentals of machine learning. I mean, you know--whereas in the United States, you know, some of our government officials, you know, up until very recently denied AI's capabilities; and only yesterday--so this is February 11th--President Trump issued an Executive Order to, I guess--I mean, there's a handful of bullet points on what AI ought to be, but it wasn't a policy paper. There's no funding. There's no government structure set up. There's not--I mean it--you see where I'm getting at?

25:07

Russ Roberts: Well, yeah--let me push back against that a little bit. You know, China is growing tremendously; as you point out, they are going to, presumably, they are already in one of the greatest transformations in human history from the countryside to the city, from a low standard of living to a much higher standard of living. And most of that's wonderful, and I'm happy about it. We don't know exactly what their ambitions will be or are outside of their own borders, and therefore what the repercussions are for us. As you suggest, they are doing a bunch of stuff. But the fact that they are top down and planning and organized, and we are chaotic and disorganized--so, just to take an example, you know, there's n companies in America, more than 4; I don't know how many there are--working on various aspects of driverless autonomous vehicles. There's Uber; there's Lyft; Apple; Google; there's Waymo. There's a lot going on here. And a lot of that will turn out. That's the nature of creative destruction; and capitalism. Some of those investments won't pan out. It will--the gambles will fail and lose, and people lose all their money. And, in general, historically, that chaotic soup of competition serves the average person and the people who are innovators quite well. The fact that China has, say, Baidu focusing on that and no one else having to worry about it, could be a bug, not a feature. I'm not convinced that China teaching kindergarteners machine learning is going to turn out well. Could be a mistake. Could be an enormous blunder. They are not allowing kind of experimentation, trial and error, that in my view is central to innovation. So, I think it remains to be seen how successful their walled garden with top-down gardening going on from the government's vision of what they want AI to serve, is going to work out. It might. It could. And it could be hard--the outcomes might be really bad for not just the Chinese but for other people. But it might just kind of fail. And, I'm not even convinced that their growth path is going to continue the way it has in the past. A lot of people just assume that because they have grown dramatically over the last 25 years they'll keep growing dramatically. There's a lot of ghost cities in China; there's a lot of overbuilding. I'm not so sure they have everything under control. So, I think you have to have that caveat as a footnote to those concerns.

Amy Webb: I completely agree with you. I would say that, for years, especially in the United States, we've been indoctrinated into thinking that China is a copy-paste culture rather than a culture that understands how to innovate, and to some extent I think that that is the result of that heavy-fisted, top-down approach to business. What I'm concerned about is not whether China succeeds financially. Here's what I'm concerned about. The challenge with artificial intelligence is that it's already here. It is not--there's no event horizon. There's no single thing that happens. It's already here. And it's been here for a while. And, in fact, it powers--you know, artificial [?] intelligence now powers our email; it powers the anti-lock brakes in our cars. You know. And essentially, this new Third Era of computing that we are in, if we assume that the First Era was tabulation--so that would have been Ada Lovelace in the late 1800s--and a Second Era was programmable systems, which would have been those early IBM mainframes on up to the, you know, desktop computers that we use today. This next Era is AI. And AI, while we've seen it anthropomorphized in movies like Her and on shows like Westworld, at its heart, AI is simply systems that make decisions on our behalf. And they do that using tools to optimize. So, the challenge is that, right now, systems are capable of making fairly narrow decisions. And the structures of those systems, and which data they were trained on, and how they make decisions and under what circumstances, those decisions were made by a relatively few number of people working at the BAT [Baidu, Alibaba, Tencent] in China and at the G-Mafia here in the United States. And the problem is that these systems aren't static. They continue to learn. And they--you know--they join, literally millions and millions of other algorithms that are all working in service of optimizing things on our behalf. Which is why I agree with you that if we are talking about a self-driving future, it's good to have competition, because--for all the usual reasons. Right? We get better form factors[?]; we get better vehicles; we get better price points. But when we are talking about systems that are continuing to evolve, that grow more and more powerful the more data they have access to and the more compute they are given--more computer power. And as we move into the more technical aspects, there are things like Generative Adversarial Networks, which are specifically designed to play tricks, to help systems learn more quickly. We are talking about slowly but surely ceding control over to systems to make these decisions on our behalf. And, that is what concerns me. What concerns me is that we do not have a singular set of guardrails that are global in nature. We don't have norms and standards. I'm not in favor of regulation. On the other hand, we don't have any kind of agreed-upon ideas for who and what to optimize for, under what circumstances. Or even what data sets to use. And China has a vastly different approach than we do in the United States, in part because China has a completely different viewpoint on what details of people's private lives should be mined, refined, and productized. And here in the United States, a lot of these companies have obfuscated when and how they are using our data. And, the challenge is that we all have to live with the repercussions.

32:10

Russ Roberts: Yeah, I'd agree with that. Up to a point. I want to give you a chance to talk about some scary examples. I think the--I'll just say, up front, that for me, underlying this whole problem--there are many different proximate causes and concerns. But there is, it seems to me, a very significant lack of competition. We can talk about how much competition there is in the United States relative to China. But certainly--the concern for me here in the United States is that the Big Six[Big Nine?] here in the United States will stay the Big Six[Big Nine?]. Which will give them leverage to do a bunch of things that you or I might not like. I do want to add that whatever we do to regulate or constrain them, via culture or whatever, allows for the possibility that they don't stay the Big Six[Big Nine?]. And I think one of the challenges of any way to deal with these problems is that, if you're not careful, you are going to end up creating a cartel that--it's de facto right now, but that can change. But if you make it de jure, you're going to end up with much worse outcomes than I think we're going to have. But, to concede your point about concern: I do think the Silicon Valley ethos of ask for forgiveness rather than permission--because right now there's no one you have to ask permission for, generally. Users are not paying much attention. There's very little regulation of how your private data is being used. Obviously something happened on January 1st, 2019 because I get a lot of annoying bars on my websites saying 'Will you accept cookies?' and I stupidly always click 'Yes,' like I'm sure most people do. And now they've complied with whatever required them to do that, and they're moving along. So, you know, I do think that there are some serious issues here. And you give some examples in the book of where these corporations--or China--have done things, and they really pay a price for it. They just keep going. The Facebook/Cambridge Analytica problem. The example you give of China pressuring Marriott the way their website was designed in terms of territorial recognition of China's sovereignty over various places that are somewhat up in the air. Those are serious issues, I think. And, more importantly, they are just the tip of the iceberg. So, talk about a couple of those things that you are worried about, that I think are alarming. And, normally, the marketplace would punish these folks; but not much does.

Amy Webb: So, I love what you just said, which is that the market--so it's curious, right? Why has the marketplace not punished the Big Nine? Or at least the G-Mafia, right? Or at least Facebook?

Russ Roberts: They've been punished a little bit. I think their users are down. I'm thinking about deleting my Facebook page. And I'm sure--and I've switched to DuckDuckGo for my searching. It's a really small step. But these are things that maybe people are starting to do in a little, slightly bigger, numbers.

Amy Webb: Maybe. But, again, like I don't have access to the whole world's data. Thank God. But--and you--let's just reveal our biases: like, you and I are digitally savvy people.

Russ Roberts: You're kind, Amy.

Amy Webb: Well, but you are. I think the fact that you even know what DuckDuckGo is, that you are somebody who is using it, I think is quite telling. [More to come, 35:37]

Control over how technology works forms the foundation of digital colonialism. Software is often proprietary, which means that users cannot read, modify, or share the source code. This prevents them from understanding and controlling how their computers work.

The public cannot hold Big Tech corporations accountable if they cannot take direct action to change how their software works.

It is for this reason that American software programmer Richard Stallman started advocating for Free and Open Source Software in the early 1980s. "A nonfree program is a yoke, an instrument of unjust power," Stallman reasoned.

People should be given the freedom to control their computers, which requires them having access to software source code - the set of instructions that tells your computer what to do.

Free Software licenses are written to invert the authoritarian power of proprietary software: They secure the user's freedom to use, study, modify, and share the software. They keep software free and open for everyone and enable accountability.

For example, Microsoft configures its Windows operating system to spy on its users. If it were not under the proprietary control of Microsoft, computer hacktivists would surely strip out its spying services and release a modified, "spy-free" version of Windows for the public.

However, Free Software alone is not enough to protect the public interest because in recent years, surveillance capitalism has given rise to centralised Internet services outside of user control. Platforms like Facebook function as "information intermediaries" which stand between end users. Want to send a picture to a friend? You send it to Facebook first, and then your friend downloads it from Facebook.

With the shift to centralised services run by corporate giants, the surveillance of users sky-rocketed. Cloud computing plays a key role. While Free Software creates accountability for software running inside your own device, it cannot produce accountability for cloud services run by corporations. This is because the software is running on someone else's computer (Facebook, Google, etc). Corporate clouds dispossess the people of the ability to control their computers.

Cloud services provide petabytes of information to corporations, who use the data to train their artificial intelligence systems. AI uses Big Data to "learn" - it requires millions of pictures to "understand" how to recognise, say, the letter "A" in its different fonts and forms. In this sense, "data is the new oil".

When applied to humans, the sensitive details of people's personal lives become an incredibly valuable resource that tech giants are incessantly trying to extract.

OPINION - March 8, 2019

By Alessandro Bruno

Today, if a new entrepreneur wants to understand why the banks rejected a loan application for his start-up, or if a young graduate wants to know why the large corporation for which he was hoping to work did not invite her for an interview, they will not be able to discover the reasons that led to these decisions.

Both the bank and the corporation used artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to determine the outcome of the loan or the job application. In practice, this means that if your loan application is rejected, or your CV rejected, no explanation can be provided. This produces an embarrassing scenario, which tends to relegate AI technologies to suggesting solutions, which must be validated by human beings.

Explaining how these technologies work remains one of the great challenges that researchers and adopters must resolve in order to allow humans to become less suspicious, and more accepting, of AI.  To that effect, it’s important to note what AI is not. The very term AI conjures up images of sentient robots able to understand human language and act accordingly. While it may one day reach that point, for the time being, in the vast majority of cases AI refers to a complex software, programmed to make decisions based on the inputs it receives.

The big leap occurred when such software moved beyond being able to play and win at chess against humans (Google’s DeepMind) to being able to approve or deny credit such as Lenddo. In other words AI now largely consists of software, based on decisional algorithms. The self-driving apps that Apple, Google, and Tesla are developing are based on the same principles. Similarly, many humans come literally face to face with AI every day when they ask Siri, Alexa or Google Assistant to help them with a search or in finding a good restaurant.

AI, therefore, for most people, is a decisional system that produces results based on the data that feed a given algorithm. And while we’re discussing the subject of AI explainability, algorithms (derived from the IX century Baghdad mathematician al-Kharawazm who first recognized these) are procedures that resolve a specific problem through an established number of basic steps.

In a sense, explainable AI offers a solution to enable the relevant humans to understand how an AI algorithm made a particular decision. Why does anyone need to know this? Because the algorithms take decisions with serious ethical and legal ramifications. Therefore, in order for AI to advance and spread, it can only do so in a context of ‘explainability.’ Let’s consider self-driving cars. In case of an accident, the obvious question is ‘who is responsible?’ The issue of repairing the damage, to a vehicle, person, or property begs to be asked. Legal systems have been slow to adapt, even as automated systems are making decisions in situations, which not even the human algorithm programmers can predict.

The issue of self-driving vehicles may be the most obvious.

Who is responsible? Insurers and lawyers are already debating the issue. And despite the fact that related experimental vehicles have driven millions of miles in tests on actual roads, before drivers will be allowed to exploit the full potential of self-driving technology, legal knots will have to be worked out. And in order for that to happen, the AI algorithms will have to be able to explain how they make their decisions.

Until then, humans will have to take responsibility for decisional processes. And this limits the potential of AI.

Therefore, the future of ‘AI explainability’ is the future of AI itself.

AI will also need to explain itself, given its enormous philosophical implications.

In the Bible, the Creator asked Adam and Eve not to eat the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. The Creator offered no explanation for the demand; and his two most valuable creations, Adam and Eve, defied the command. In the Bible, God expelled the two from eternal life. Mankind will not have this luxury. AI technology, like all other technology before it, cannot be expelled from the world-no matter how hard luddites may try. Yet, the ‘forbidden fruit’ story does pose two crucial A.I. problems:

Will AI systems also become independent enough to think for themselves and defy human orders (as many fear and as science fiction has suggested)? And why should humans abide by decisions taken by AI systems?

Of the two, the one that must be addressed first is the latter question.

In the opinion of many, including unlikely sources involved in selling AI dependent technologies – such as Elon Musk of Tesla Motors and SpaceX – artificial intelligence suffers from excessive opacity. Artificial intelligence technologies have generated programs that peruse curricula, cover letters, medical diagnostics or loan applications. Nevertheless, these programs make decisions in ways that seem arbitrary. Or, rather, they make decisions that neither the humans in control nor the programs can explain. Programmers and users simply cannot track the multitude of calculations that the AI program has used to reach its conclusion.

AI technology—if we can even use that plebeian term to describe something that’s as revolutionary as the discovery of fire—will be a turning point for humanity, not just the economy, making our lives better. It’s on the brink of devising systems, whether machines or processes, that can think, feel and even worship their creators…humans. Indeed, humanity has truly reached an Olympian moment. It has evolved to the point of having reshaped the world physically, it has now reached a stage where it can literally play ‘God’. If humans are now in a position to create ever more sentient ‘machines’, there are no guarantees that the machines will be happy to serve and obey their creators all of the time.

          Microsoft introduces free Artificial Intelligence Courses for industry leaders      Cache   Translate Page      
artificial intelligence courses

Microsoft is releasing a new set of artificial intelligence courses framed for business leaders which will involve free instructional videos and case studies.

These videos and case studies will be focusse on the less technical aspects of the technology as it applies to top executives who are trying to integrate AI, including strategy, company culture and ethical responsibilities, into their operations.

They’re the latest in a series of instructional materials Microsoft has released, as it looks to address the usual shortage or absence of educational resources and talent in the Artificial Intelligence sector.

Also ReadIs Artificial Intelligence redefining Women Power?

As per Mitra Azizirad, Microsoft’s Corporate VP of AI Marketing and Productisation, the study material is the result of three-year conversations that Microsoft has had with client executives, who opined that there was a dearth of educational resources on AI that reached beyond the nuts-and-bolts technical level.

“We wanted to make sure we were meeting the needs of business leaders and really empowering them, no matter where they were on their journey, to drive an AI transformation with a focus on strategy, culture and governance,” Azizirad added.

The development comes about a week after the publication of a Microsoft-commissioned survey gauging executives’ priorities when it comes to implementing AI.


          The Power of List Segmentation Part III: So You Want More Student Applications, Right?      Cache   Translate Page      

Audience segmentation and digital marketing, this is our third post of our three-part series. Our faithful readers dug into Part I (segmentation and parameters) and Part II (audience motivations) with relish. Today: messengers and lead scoring. Hold onto your hats, right?

This stuff is important— so while our blog series on the topic may end today, we hope you'll keep digging into the topic of audience segmentation. We're here to help. Drop us a line at info@intead.com, or connect with us in-person at the TABS Global Symposium on April 28-30 in Newport, RI.  We'd love to talk with you about how you can use segmentation to up your enrollment game.

One other near-term, valuable opportunity to learn with us: Artificial Intelligence for Higher Ed Explained. An Intead Plus exclusive webinar with Ashish Fernando, CEO of iSchoolConnect. 

This is a great opportunity. We will help you navigate the complex waters of AI and help you stay focused on your long-term goals. We're Intead, so we'll have some really cool data to share about online behavior, tech trends, case studies and the many faces of AI that can improve your student recruitment and engagement.

Register for the Webinar HERE

Here's the bottom line on audience segmentation. Yes, the process can feel daunting. You have a lot to consider: Which regions do you want to reach? What motivations drive your prospective students? Which messages will be most compelling, and to whom?

There is a ton of strategy to consider and content to develop. Nevertheless, this process is how you get more applications and boost your student yield. We imagine there is some internal pressure to achieve these goals, yes?

Different markets require different approaches. Ignore this reality at your own peril. For example, many institutions simply dump all prospective “international students” into a marketing bucket called “INTERNATIONAL.” We hear it all the time (“Let us show you our ‘international’ recruitment brochure!”) and it still makes us wince.

In today's competitive market, a one-size-fits-all approach simply doesn't cut it. Take the time to segment your audience and implement a marketing plan (message, content, dissemination channel) to each group you are targeting, and success will follow.

Part of doing audience segmentation well is choosing the best messenger at the best time. And another part is having your system set up to indicate or elevate the best leads - AKA lead scoring (those most engaged) so you know where to focus your valuable time and resources.

So without further ado, let's get to it.

          AI Founder Blasts Modern Research      Cache   Translate Page      
"AI has been brain-dead since the 1970s," said AI guru Marvin Minsky in a recent speech at Boston University. Minsky co-founded the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory in 1959 with John McCarthy.

His argument is that researchers are concentrating on useless robots instead of the crucial common sense reasoning research. He commented that only one researcher has committed himself to the colossal task of building a comprehensive common-sense reasoning system, according to Minsky. Douglas Lenat, through his Cyc project, has directed the line-by-line entry of more than 1 million rules into a commonsense knowledge base.

But we cannot blame the researchers as the AI field is vast and miracles cannot happen in seconds. Infact there is much hype of AI, that it will do this, it will do that in few coming years. AI field in interlinked with all kinds of domains like from philosophy to physics and from Computer Science to Cognitive Science, and coordinating is difficult and this needs more interdisciplinary researchers.

Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment has acquired the film rights to a novel that hasn’t even been published yet, Carole Stivers’ ‘The Mother Code’, which will be released next year.  Amy Louise Johnson, a writer and producer for Syfy’s now-canceled series ‘Nightflyers’, will adapt Stivers’ book into a screenplay. Stivers is also a Silicon Valley biochemist, and her book draws inspiration from that field. ‘The Mother Code’ is set in a world in which a biological weapon has nearly destroyed the planet, leading scientists and government officials working to save the human race by placing unborn children in the care of artificially intelligent mother robots. When the government decides the machines must be destroyed, one boy who was raised and nurtured by a robot must fight to save the only parent he has ever known. It’s unknown what role Spielberg will play, but he is likely to at least be a producer.  Spielberg is no stranger to movies that deal with young people and the fantastic, having directed ‘E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial’, ‘Jurassic Park’, ‘The Lost World: Jurassic Park’, ‘A.I. Artificial Intelligence’, ‘The Adventures of Tintin’, and most recently, ‘Ready Player One’.  He also served as producer of ‘Gremlins’, ‘The Goonies’, ‘Back […]

          What Is Programming Language?      Cache   Translate Page      

Microcontrollers are normally utilized for low to medium complexity, certain tasks in equipment. As talked about earlier in the write-up, the greatest way to begin programming is to download a programming language (of your selection) and just commence performing it. If you reside with your parent(s)/guardian(s), ask them for suggestions on what you can create to aid about the house, like computerized buying lists, reminders, alarm clocks, or other beneficial utilities. I played two of these games when I was younger and had free of charge time (robowar and grobots). Developers can also take benefit of Box 2D physics engine and publish games and apps to multiple platforms, such as the OUYA console, thanks to its Android export module.

To reprogram push an release the green button and then push and hold the remote manage button. But if you go to the interview and they ask you all type of technical inquiries and give you test workouts during the interview – effectively – you are screwed! For example, if you are targeting Google then Elements of Programming Interviews and Algorithmic design and style manual is have to read, but for most of the programming job interviews, Cracking the Coding interviews will do the job as it covers most common queries. Robocode is a common freeware programming game where authors pit their creations against the integrated robots – and against Artificial Intelligences of other authors! You need to also include your education, contact data, languages you know, other IT-connected skills. It is true that the programming field is diminishing, and not as sturdy as it after was.

In technical queries – if you genuinely do not know, it’s much better to say confidently that you don’t know the answer, than to begin guessing. It appears undesirable for your reputation at these websites, and people will not choose you for their jobs. Particularly grobots appears really unique to me and has a lot of area left to discover, but I believe what people dislike is that you want to find out a particular programming language for it. Factors like the AI challenge ( ) are truly popular at the moment. A colleague of mine started in building, and identified his way into programming.

Parents can then engage their little ones in hunting critically at the marketing that is thrown at them in an effort to thwart the influence of media on young children.

          Kongres Forum Humas BUMN di Bandung      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Forum Humas (FH) BUMN menggelar kongres kehumasan bertajuk The Future of PR pada Rabu (13/3/2019). Dalam kesempatan tersebut, Deputi Bidang Infrastruktur Bisnis Kementerian BUMN Hambra mengatakan FH BUMN harus siap menghadapi tantangan Revolusi Industri 4.0.

"Perbankan saja kalau tidak menyesuaikan (dengan Revolusi Industri 4.0) bisa lewat. Dan kami sadar betul bahwa tantang industri 4.0 ini generasi muda kita yang harus kita persiapkan," kata Hambra seusai membuka Kongres dan Munas FH BUMN di Trans Luxury Hotel, Rabu (13/3/2019).

Hambra mengatakan salah satu bentuk kesiapan BUMN untuk menghadapi Revolusi Industri 4.0 ialah dengan gencar merekrut generasi milenial yang memiliki kemampuan terbaik di bidangnya. Karena itu, acara tersebut mengundang banyak milenial muda.

"Makanya hari ini, BUMN begitu intensif melibatkan para generasi milenial dalam program-program pengembangan untuk masyarakat karena kita sadar mereka yang akan menghadapi itu dan itu sudah kami persiapkan sejak sekarang," katanya.

Hambra mengatakan Forum Humas BUMN akan responsif dalam menjawab persoalan yang para humas hadapi di era teknologi big data dan artificial intelligence (Al). Hal ini menurutnya, sesuai dengan tema yang diangkat, yakni "The Future of PR : hadapi Tantangan Humas di Masa Depan"

Pihaknya berharap Forum Humas menjadi ujung tombak bagi Kementerian BUMN dalam memublikasikan semua yang sudah dilakukan oleh BUMN untuk masyarakat dan sebaliknya menginformasikan apa saja yang diharapkan oleh masyarakat kepada BUMN-BUMN yang ada.

"FH BUMN ini bisa menjadi di menjadi corong bagi BUMN untuk bisa memublikasikan apa saja yang sudah dilakukan dan apa saja hal positif yang sudah dilakukan oleh BUMN," ujarnya.

"Kemudian kita bisa menangkal informasi-informasi negatif yang disampaikan oleh pihak-pihak yang mungkin tidak paham atau mengerti tentang BUMN tapi kemudian berbicara tentang BUMN," lanjutnya.

Hambra juga mengatakan forum ini harus menjadi perpanjangan tangan Kementerian BUMN dalam membantu meng-counter berita-berita negatif mengenai BUMN.

Dia mengatakan Forum Humas BUMN juga harus mampu memengaruhi opini publik melalui program dan strategi kehumasannya, agar terbangun pola pikir masyarakat bahwa BUMN hadir untuk negeri dan benar ada untuk masyarakat.

Di akhir wawancara, Hambra juga menyampaikan tentang keadaan masyarakat masa kini yang sering asal share. Menurutnya, hal ini tidak menghargai perjuangan leluhur.

"Zaman sekarang kan kadang sudah ga lihat tuh hoax atau bukan, terima langsung sebar. Harusnya gak boleh ya. Bangsa ini kan karya leluhur kita, kakek-kakek kita yang telah mengkrbankan tanah, harta dan tumlah darah untuk bangsa ini. Kita anak-anak sekarang gak jaga ya dosa besar," tuturnya.

          Proposed Pentagon budget includes new funding for border wall and accounting trick      Cache   Translate Page      

iStock/Ivan Cholakov(WASHINGTON) -- While many federal agencies took big hits in the proposed federal budget from the White House, the Pentagon's portion for the coming year is almost 5 percent more than the $685 billion enacted by Congress last year.

Overall the Trump administration's proposed national security budget is $750 billion. But that includes $32 billion from other agencies, such as the Department of Energy which takes care of the United State's non-deployed nuclear weapons arsenal. The $718 billion dollars slated for the Pentagon includes a 3.1 percent pay increase for military service members, increases space funding by 15 percent to $14.1 billion and includes about $3.6 billion in new funding to build barriers along the Southwest border.

"This budget reflects the challenge pulling together all the pieces of the National Defense Strategy that have been built over the past two years," said Grover Norquist the Pentagon's comptroller who is currently performing the duties of the Defense Department's deputy secretary.

But Congress is certain to raise questions about the accounting tricks that sidestep legal budget caps on what the Pentagon budget is supposed to be for this year.

Under the 2011 Budget Control Act, the Pentagon has a spending cap of $545 billion in its budget for this year. Those limits typically cover the "base" budget items for running the Department of Defense.

The funds for fighting wars overseas are allocated in the Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) fund, that in recent years, has come in at around $60 billion.

But this year's OCO has ballooned to $173 billion, almost three times what it's been in previous years, because the Pentagon now says $97 billion in "base" funding can fall under the OCO account.

Pentagon Deputy Comptroller Elaine McCusker defended the accounting maneuver, telling reporters it was something the Pentagon has done before.

"The accounts that we have in OCO are accounts that have been funded in full or in part, in the past," she told reporters Tuesday.

The budget proposal also includes new funding to build barriers along the Southwest barrier, but Pentagon officials could not provide specific details about how the new $3.6 billion could be used, other than to say it helps meet the $18 billion the Trump administration has identified to build the border wall.

Separately the Pentagon has also set aside an additional $3.6 billion to replace this year's military construction funds that could soon be used to build border barriers under President Donald Trump's national emergency declaration.

In releasing details from the overall proposal, senior Pentagon officials stressed how the budget is strategy-driven and is intended to counter the growing competition from Russia and China in new areas.

"Future wars will be waged not just in the air, on the land or at sea, but also in space and cyberspace, dramatically increasing the complexity of warfare, Norquist said.

To that end the budget request increases space funding by 15 percent to $14.1 billion with most of that amount going to improve space capabilities, satellite communication and launches.

The new Space Force -- advocated by Trump -- the new Space Command and the Space Development Agency make up only $300 million of that funding.

The Pentagon budget also includes $9.6 billion on cyber operations, both offensive and defensive, a ten percent increase over last year.

Seeking to keep its competitive advantage on the battlefield, the Pentagon is also investing in new research of future technologies like artificial intelligence, hypersonics, directed energy and autonomous vehicles.

The new budget is also certain to please military service members who, if Congress approves, are in line to receive a 3.1 percent pay increase, an amount Pentagon officials touted as the largest request in a decade.

          Want to manage your total cloud costs better? Emphasize the ‘Ops’ in DevOps, says Futurum analyst Daniel Newman      Cache   Translate Page      

The next BriefingsDirect Voice of the Analyst interview explores new ways that businesses can gain the most control and economic payback from various cloud computing models.

We’ll now hear from an IT industry analyst on how developers and IT operators can find newfound common ground to make hybrid cloud the best long-term economic value for their organizations.

Listen to the podcast. Find it on iTunes. Read a full transcript or download a copy.

Here to help explore ways a managed and orchestrated cloud lifecycle culture should be sought across enterprise IT organizations is Daniel Newman, Principal Analyst and Founding Partner at Futurum Research. The interview is moderated by Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst at Interarbor Solutions.

Here are some excerpts:

Gardner: Daniel, many tools have been delivered over the years for improving software development in the cloud. Recently, containerization and management of containers has been a big part of that.

Now, we’re also seeing IT operators tasked with making the most of cloud, hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud around DevOps – and they need better tools, too.

Has there been a divide or lag between what developers have been able to do in the public cloud environment and what operators must be able to do? If so, is that gap growing or shrinking now that new types of tools for automation, orchestration, and composability of infrastructure and cloud services are arriving?

Out of the shadow, into the cloud 

Newman: Your question lends itself to the concept of shadow IT. The users of this shadow IT find a way to get what they need to get things done. They have had a period of uncanny freedom.

Newman
But this has led to a couple of things. First of all, generally nobody knows what anybody else is doing within the organization. The developers have been able to creatively find tools.

On the other hand, IT has been cast inside of a box. And they say, “Here is the toolset you get. Here are your limitations. Here is how we want you to go about things. These are the policies.”

And in the data center world, that’s how everything gets built. This is the confined set of restrictions that makes a data center a data center.

But in a developer’s world, it’s always been about minimum viable product. It’s been about how to develop using tools that do what they need them to do and getting the code out as quickly as possible. And when it’s all in the cloud, the end-user of the application doesn’t know which cloud it’s running on, they just know they’re getting access to the app.

Basically we now have two worlds colliding. You have a world of strict, confined policies -- and that’s the “ops” side of DevOps. You also have the developers who have been given free rein to do what they need to do; to get what they need to get done, done.

Get Dev and Ops to collaborate 

Gardner: So, we need to keep that creativity and innovation going for the developers so they can satisfy their requirements. At the same time, we need to put in guard rails, to make it all sustainable.

Otherwise we see not a minimal viable cloud – but out-of-control expenses, out-of-control governance and security, and difficulty taking advantage of both private cloud and public cloud, or a hybrid affair, when you want to make that choice.

How do we begin to make this a case of worlds collaborating instead of worlds colliding?

Newman: It’s a great question. We have tended to point DevOps toward “dev.” It’s really been about the development, and the “ops” side is secondary. It’s like capital D, lowercase o.

The thing is, we’re now having a massive shift that requires more orchestration and coordination between these groups.
How to Make
Hybrid IT
Simple
You mentioned out-of-control expenses. I spoke earlier about DevOps and developers having the free rein – to do what they need to do, put it where they need to put it, containers, clouds, tools, whatever they need, and just get it out because that’s what impacts their customers.

If you have an application where people buy things on the web and you need to get that app out, it may be a little more expensive to deploy it without the support of Ops, but you feel the pressure to get it done quickly.

Now, Ops can come in and say, “Well, you know … what about a flex consumption-based model, what about multi-cloud, what about using containers to create more portability?”

“What if we can keep it within the constraints of a budget and work together with you? And, by the way, we can help you understand which applications are running on which cloud and provide you the optimal [aggregate cloud use] plan.”

Let’s be very honest, a developer doesn’t care about all of that. ... They are typically not paid or compensated in any way that leads to optimizing on cost. That’s what the Ops people do.

Such orchestration -- just like almost all larger digital transformation efforts -- starts when you have shared goals. The problem is, they call it a DevOps group -- but Dev has one set of goals and Ops has different ones.

What you’re seeing is the need for new composable tools for cloud services, which we saw at such events as the recent Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Discover conference. They are launching these tools, giving the Ops people more control over things, and -- by the way -- giving developers more visibility than has existed in the past.
There is a big opportunity [for better cloud use economics] through better orchestration and collaboration, but it comes down to the age-old challenges of having the Dev and Ops people share the same goals.

There is a big opportunity [for better cloud use economics] through better orchestration and collaboration, but it comes down to the age-old challenges inside of any IT organization -- and that is having the Dev and the Ops people share the same goals. These new tools may give them more of a reason to start working in that way.

Gardner: The more composability the operations people have, the easier it is for them to define a path that the developers can stay inside of without encumbering the developers.

We may be at the point in the maturity of the industry where both sides can get what they want. It’s simply a matter of putting that together -- the chocolate and peanut-butter, if you will. It becomes more of a complete DevOps.

But there is another part of this people often don’t talk about, and that’s the data placement component. When we examine the lifecycle of a modern application, we’re not just developing it and staging it where it stays static. It has to be built upon and improved, we are doing iterations, we are doing Agile methods.

We also have to think about the data the application is consuming and creating in the same way. That dynamic data use pattern needs to fit into a larger data management philosophy and architecture that includes multi-cloud support.

I think it’s becoming DevDataOps-- not just DevOps these days. The operations people need to be able to put in requirements about how that data is managed within the confines of that application’s deployment, yet kept secure, and in compliance with regulations and localization requirements.

DevDataOps emerges

Newman: We’ve launched the DevDataOps category right now! That’s actually a really great point, because if you think about where does all that live -- meaning IT orchestration of the infrastructure choices and whether that’s in the cloud or on-premises – there has to be enough of the right kind of storage.

Developers are usually worried about data from the sense of what can they do with that data to improve and enhance the applications. When you add in elements like machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), that’s going to just up the compute and storage requirements. You have the edge and Internet of Things (IoT) to consider now too for data. Most applications are collecting more data in real-time. With all of these complexities, you have to ask, “Who really owns this data?”

Well, the IT part of DevOps, the “Ops,” typically worries about capacity and resources performance for data. But are they really worried about the data in these new models? It brings in that needed third category because the Dev person doesn’t necessarily deal with the data lifecycle. The need to best use that data is a business unit imperative, a marketing-level issue, a sales-level data requirement. It can include all the data that’s created inside of a cloud instance of SAP or Salesforce.
How to Solve Cost
and Utilization Challenges
of Hybrid Cloud
Just think about how many people need to be involved in orchestration to maximize that? Culturally speaking, it goes back to shared tools, shared visibility, and shared goals. It’s also now about more orchestration required across more external groups. So your DevOps group just got bigger, because the data deluge is going to be the most valuable resource any company has. It will be, if it isn’t already today, the most influential variable in what your company becomes.

You can’t just leave that to developers and operators of IT. It becomes core to business unit leadership, and they need to have an impact. The business leadership should be asking, “We have all this data. What are we doing with it? How are we managing it? Where does it live? How do we pour it between different clouds? What stays on-premises and what goes off? How do we govern it? How can we have governance over privacy and compliance?”

I would say most companies really struggle to keep up with compliance because there are so many rules about what kind of data you have, where it can live, how it should be managed, and how long it should be stored.


I think you bring up a great point, Dana. I could probably rattle on about this for a long, long time. You’ve just added a whole new element to DevOps, right here on this podcast. I don’t know that it has to do with specifically Dev or Ops, but I think it’s Dev+Ops+Data -- a new leadership element for meaningful digital transformation.

Gardner: We talked about trying to bridge the gap between development and Ops, but I think there are other gaps, too. One is between data lifecycle management – for backup and recovery and making it the lowest cost storage environment, for example. Then there is the other group of data scientists who are warehousing that data, caching it, and grabbing more data from outside, third-party sources to do more analytics for the entire company. But these data strategies are too often still divorced.

These data science people and what the developers and operators are doing aren’t necessarily in sync. So, we might have another category, which would be Dev+Data+DataScience+Ops.

Add Data Analytics to the Composition 

Newman: Now we’re going four groups. You are firstly talking about the data from the running applications. That’s managed through pure orchestration in DevOps, and that works fine through composability tools. Those tools provide IT the capability to add guard rails to the developers, so they are not doing things in the shadows, but instead do things in coordination.

The other data category is that bigger analytical data. It includes open data, third-party data, and historical data that’s been collected and stored inside of instances of Enterprise resource planning (ERP) apps and Customer-relationship management (CRM) apps for 20 or 30 years. It’s a gold mine of information. Now we have to figure out an extract process and incorporate that data into almost every enterprise-level application that developers are building. Right now Dev and Ops don’t really have a clue what is out there and available across that category because that’s being managed somewhere else, through an analytics group of the company.

Gardner: Or, developers will have to create an entirely different class of applications for analytics alone, as well as integrating the analytics services into all of the existing apps.

Newman: One of the HPE partners I’ve worked with the in the past, SAS, and companies such as SAS and SAP, are going to become much closer aligned with infrastructure. Your DevOps is going to become your analytics Ops, too.
How to Achieve
Composability
Across Your Data Center
Hardware companies have built software apps to run their hardware, but they haven’t been historically building software apps to run the data that sits on the hardware. That’s been managed by the businesses running business intelligence software, such as the ones I mentioned.

There is an opportunity for a new level of coordination to take place at the vendor level, because when you see these alliances, and you see these partnerships, this isn’t new. But, seeing it done in a way that’s about getting the maximum amount of usable data from one system into every application -- that’s futuristic, and it needs to be worked on today.

Gardner: The bottom line is that there are many moving parts of IT that remain disjointed. But we are at the point now with composability and automation of getting an uber-view over services and processes to start making these new connections – technically, culturally, and organizationally.

What I have seen from HPE around the HPE Composable Cloud vision moves a big step in that direction. It might be geared toward operators, but, ultimately it’s geared toward the entire enterprise, and gives the business an ability to coordinate, manage, and gain insights into all these different facets of a digital business.
Companies right now still struggle with the resources to run multi-cloud. They tend to have maybe one public cloud and their on-premises operations. They don't know which is the best cloud approach because they are not getting the total information.

Newman: We’ve been talking about where things can go, and it’s exciting. But let’s take a step back.

Multi-cloud is a really great concept. Hyper-converged infrastructure, it’s all really nice, and there has been massive movement in this area in the last couple of years. Companies right now still struggle with the resources to run multi-cloud. They tend to have maybe one public cloud and their on-premise operations. They have their own expertise, and they have endless contracts and partnerships.

They don’t know which the best-cloud approach is because they are not necessarily getting that total information. It depends on all of the relationships, the disparate resources they have across Dev and Ops, and the data can change on a week-to-week basis. One cloud may have been perfect a month ago, yet all of a sudden you change the way an application is running and consuming data, and it’s now in a different cloud.


What HPE is doing with HPE Composable Cloud takes the cloud plus composable infrastructure and, working through HPE OneSphere and HPE OneView, brings them all into a single view. We’re in a software and user experience world.

The tools that deliver the most usable and valuable dashboard-type of cloud use data in one spot are going to win the battle. You need that view in front of you for quick deployment, with quick builds, portability, and container management. HPE is setting itself in a good position for how we do this in one place.
How to Remove
Complexity From
Multi-Cloud and Hybrid IT
Give me one view, give me my one screen to look at, and I think your Dev and Ops -- and everybody in between – and all your new data and data science friends will all appreciate that view. HPE is on a good track, and I look forward to seeing what they do in the future.

          Skull Session: Dwayne Haskins Could Be the Best Draft QB Since Andrew Luck, Ohio State Face NCAA Tournament Play-In Game, and Buckeye Basketball Brings in the Bucks      Cache   Translate Page      

I seek your forgiveness. I fell asleep and forgot to schedule the Skull Session, so you're getting it a little late. You deserve better and I will be better.

Speaking of being better though, how 'bout them Browns, am I right? They got rid of a Michigan Man and nabbed the best receiver in the NFL in one fell swoop. I'd never seen so many Ohio State players and fans reacting positively in unison to something the Cleveland Browns did. Everyone seems legitimately stoked.

Well, except maybe the quarterback who's about to play for the team that just dealt away the top receiver in the league:

Poor Dwayne, but the Super Bowl run is about to be wild. 

ICYMI

Word of the Day: Metonia.

 DWAYNE LOOKING GOOD. As is the case with most top-level quarterbacks in the draft, nobody seems able to agree on Dwayne Haskins. Some folks insist he's no better than a second-round prospect, especially given his lone year of experience, but others see a can't miss quarterback.

I have obvious biases, but I tend to associate myself with the latter, and things like this are the reasons why:

For comparison's sake, here's future first overall pick Kyler Murray's chart, which Ian Wharton says shows his "boom or bust" potential:

To me, that seems to be the story of the draft. Murray may very well be an elite NFL quarterback and possibly even the best in the draft, but Haskins seems more and more like a can't-miss prospect.

If I'm a team in need of a quarterback and am willing to draft one in the top-10, I sure ain't rolling the dice on Murray when I know I could have Haskins, but the Arizona can do what they they think they need to do. Like I've said before, it's just the Cardinals.

 PLAY-IN GAME. Ohio State's NCAA Tournament situation just got a bit more dire last night. With St. Mary’s win over Gonzaga, there's now one less at-large spot in the field.

To be honest though, I'm not sure how much it changes, because both before and after that game, I got the vibe that the only thing that mattered for Ohio State's NCAA Tournament life was beating Indiana. And Joey Brackets tends to agree.

I'm not sure Ohio State vs. Indiana should be an NCAA Tournament play in game, but it's certainly looking like it will be. I'm also not sure Ohio State should make the Tournament even with a win in that game, but I'm absolutely going to root like hell that they will, especially if it comes at the expense of Indiana and Archie Miller.

 SOMEHOW, BASKETBALL BRINGS IN TOP MONEY. Mark me down as "perplexed" by this news, but apparently Ohio State had the No. 6 most profitable basketball program in the country over the 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons.

This is an extreme head-scratcher to me, given that Ohio State won a single NCAA Tournament game in that span. Hell, they only made the NCAA Tournament as many times as they missed any sort of postseason completely, including the NIT.

But apparently that didn't cost them much fan support.

Here's how Chris Smith of Forbes how they arrived at that list:

Our ranking of college basketball’s most-valuable teams is based on three-year average revenues across the 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons (ties in revenue were broken using average profits). To determine team revenues and expenses, we relied on annual filings made by each school’s athletic department to the NCAA and the Department of Education. We also made adjustments to individual line items like contributions, media rights and sponsorships to adjust for differences in accounting practices among athletic departments. (The three private schools on our list—Duke, Syracuse and Marquette—declined to share financial details beyond those published by the Department of Education.)

Each team’s conference earns a tournament unit for every game played, excluding the championship and any first-round games played by conference champions. Those units have a six-year shelf life, and they’re currently worth around $275,000 per year (the value increases slightly each year).

Lord knows how this will look in the next few years when Ohio State is able to consistently field a competitive and exciting team.

 WRESLTEBUCKS LOOKING GOOD. I'm not going to pretend to be a wrestling expert, but written and read enough words about Buckeye wrestling over my four years here that I know this is very good.

I'll be frank: I don't love Ohio State's chances at a national title simply because Penn State exists. However, qualifying 10 is certainly a great start.

If the Bucks can win the matches (and titles) they should win, pull some upsets and hope the Nittany Lions stumble a bit, then who knows? I'm sure going to tune in.

 STEELERS STILL RIDING WITH SHAZIER. There's little to no chance Ryan Shazier is going to play a snap for the Steelers in 2019, but he's going to stay aboard the Steelers roster anyway.

For one, I think this is an extremely classy move by the Steelers, but I also still wouldn't count Shazier out from trying to make a return to the NFL. And if he does it, I know he'd want to do it in a Steelers uniform.

          New Book Haul ~ 3/27/2014      Cache   Translate Page      
Literally a gorgeous cache of books over this past week or so.  I love the beautiful covers and the subjects are so diverse and interesting.  I'm going to have an absolute feast with these.  I've started several of them...just couldn't wait.  Let me tell you about them without making you wait another minute:


From the internationally bestselling author, a lush and imaginative novel that crisscrosses time as passion and obsessions collide
Florence, Italy—1533:
An orphan named René le Florentin is plucked from poverty to become Catherine de Medici’s perfumer. Traveling with the young duchessina from Italy to France, René brings with him a cache of secret documents from the monastery where he was trained: recipes for exotic fra­grances and potent medicines—and a formula for an alchemic process said to have the poten­tial to reanimate the dead.
In France, René becomes not only the greatest perfumer in the country, but also the most dangerous, creating deadly poisons for his Queen to use against her rivals. But while mixing herbs and essences under the light of flickering candles, René doesn’t begin to imag­ine the tragic and personal consequences for which his lethal potions will be responsible.
Paris, France—The Present:
A renowned mythologist, Jac L’Etoile—trying to recover from personal heartache by throw­ing herself into her work—learns of the sixteenth-century perfumer who may have been working on an elixir that would unlock the secret to immortality. She becomes obsessed with René le Florentin’s work—particularly when she discovers the dying breaths he had collected during his lifetime.
Jac’s efforts put her in the path of her estranged lover, Griffin North, a linguist who has already begun translating René le Flo­rentin’s mysterious formula. Together they confront an eccentric heiress in possession of a world-class art collection, a woman who has her own dark purpose for the elixir . . . for which she believes the ends will justify her deadly means.
This mesmerizing gothic tale zigzags from the violent days of Catherine de Medici’s court to twenty-first-century France. Fiery and lush, set against deep, wild forests and dimly lit cha­teaus, The Collector of Dying Breaths illuminates the true path to immortality: the legacies we leave behind.


*Absolutely gorgeous cover on this book.  Thanks to Atria Books/Simon & Schuster for this opportunity to review!

A mom, a dad, a baby...and another dad.
Laurie and Alan are expecting, again. After two miscarriages, Laurie was afraid they'd never be able to have a child. Now she's cautiously optimistic — the fertility treatment worked, and things seem to be different this time around. But she doesn't yet know how different.
Jack can't seem to catch a break — his parents are on his case about graduating from college, he's somehow dating two girls at once, and he has to find a way to pay back the money he borrowed from his fraternity's party fund. The only jobs he is qualified for barely pay enough to keep him in beer money, but an ad for the local sperm bank gives Jack an idea.
Laurie and Alan's joy is shattered when their doctor reveals that Laurie was accidentally impregnated by sperm from a donor rather than her husband. Who is Donor 296. And how will their family change now that Donor 296 is inarguably part of it?

*Wow!  Doesn't this one sound amazing!?   Very kindly sent a copy from Sourcebooks...


A mother risks everything to uncover the truth behind her daughter's botched suicide attempt
To the outside world, Susan Jackson has it all-a loving family, successful husband, and beautiful home-but when Charlotte, her teenage daughter, steps in front of a bus and ends up in a coma, she is forced to question all of it.
Desperate to find out what caused Charlotte's suicide attempt, she discovers a horrifying entry in her diary: "keeping this secret is killing me." As Sue spins in desperate circles, she finds herself immersed in a dark world she didn't know existed-and the closer she comes to the truth, the more dangerous things become.
Can she wake up from the nightmares that haunt her and save her daughter, or will Charlotte's secret destroy them both?

The winner of the National Book Award returns with a moving story of a family of women drawn together by the trials of the times.

The women in the Hand family are no strangers to either controversy or sadness. Those traits seem, in fact, to be a part of their family?s heritage, one that stretches back through several generations and many wars. A Dangerous Age is a celebration of the strength of these women and of the bonds of blood and shared loss that hold them together.

“Alice is cast in the mold of a character created by an earlier Alcott, the passionate and spunky Jo March. A refreshingly old-fashioned heroine, she makes THE DARING LADIES OF LOWELL appealing”--The New York Times Book Review
“Offers up a compelling slice of both feminist and Industrial Age history”--Christian Science Monitor
From the New York Times bestselling author of THE DRESSMAKER comes a moving historical novel about a bold young woman drawn to the looms of Lowell, Massachusetts--and to the one man with whom she has no business falling in love.

Eager to escape life on her family’s farm, Alice Barrow moves to Lowell in 1832 and throws herself into the hard work demanded of “the mill girls.”  In spite of the long hours, she discovers a vibrant new life and a true friend—a saucy, strong-willed girl name Lovey Cornell.

But conditions at the factory become increasingly dangerous, and Alice finds the courage to represent the workers and their grievances.  Although mill owner, Hiram Fiske, pays no heed, Alice attracts the attention of his eldest son, the handsome and reserved Samuel Fiske. Their mutual attraction is intense, tempting Alice to dream of a different future for herself.

This dream is shattered when Lovey is found strangled to death. A sensational trial follows, bringing all the unrest that’s brewing to the surface. Alice finds herself torn between her commitment to the girls in the mill and her blossoming relationship with Samuel.  Based on the actual murder of a mill girl and the subsequent trial in 1833, THE DARING LADIES OF LOWELL brilliantly captures a transitional moment in America’s history while also exploring the complex nature of love, loyalty, and the enduring power of friendship.

*  Bought this one myself.  My grandmother was a mill worker in NC nearly 100 years ago, so I'm very interested in this subject.   This book is published by Doubleday.




Arthur Conan Doyle has just killed off Sherlock Holmes in “The Final Problem,” and he immediately becomes one of the most hated men in London. So when he is contacted by a medium “of some renown” and asked to investigate a murder, he jumps at the chance to get out of the city. The only thing is that the murder hasn’t happened yet—the medium, one Hope Thraxton, has foreseen that her death will occur at the third séance of a meeting of the Society for Psychical Research at her manor house in the English countryside. 
Along for the ride is Conan Doyle’s good friend Oscar Wilde, and together they work to narrow down the list of suspects, which includes a mysterious foreign Count, a levitating magician, and an irritable old woman with a “familiar.” Meanwhile, Conan Doyle is enchanted by the plight of the capricious Hope Thraxton, who may or may not have a more complicated back-story than it first appears. As Conan Doyle and Wilde participate in seances and consider the possible motives of the assembled group, the clock ticks ever closer to Hope’s murder, in The Revenant of Thraxton Hall by Vaughn Entwistle.

*  This copy most graciously sent by Minotaur Books.  Looking forward to reading the story combining Conan Doyle and Oscar Wilde!


Mesmerizing and illuminating, Alice Hoffman’s The Museum of Extraordinary Things is the story of an electric and impassioned love between two vastly different souls in New York during the volatile first decades of the twentieth century.
Coralie Sardie is the daughter of the sinister impresario behind The Museum of Extraordinary Things, a Coney Island boardwalk freak show that thrills the masses. An exceptional swimmer, Coralie appears as the Mermaid in her father’s “museum,” alongside performers like the Wolfman, the Butterfly Girl, and a one-hundred-year-old turtle. One night Coralie stumbles upon a striking young man taking pictures of moonlit trees in the woods off the Hudson River.
The dashing photographer is Eddie Cohen, a Russian immigrant who has run away from his father’s Lower East Side Orthodox community and his job as a tailor’s apprentice. When Eddie photographs the devastation on the streets of New York following the infamous Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, he becomes embroiled in the suspicious mystery behind a young woman’s disappearance and ignites the heart of Coralie.
With its colorful crowds of bootleggers, heiresses, thugs, and idealists, New York itself becomes a riveting character as Hoffman weaves her trademark magic, romance, and masterful storytelling to unite Coralie and Eddie in a sizzling, tender, and moving story of young love in tumultuous times. The Museum of Extraordinary Things is Alice Hoffman at her most spellbinding.


* Another personal purchase.  I adore Alice Hoffman, so can never pass up one of her new books.  This one is published by Scribner.

AND FINALLY:  Here are some books I forgot to post last Haul.....




In early 20th century British East Africa, there are rules for the British and different ones for the Africans. Vera McIntosh, the daughter of Scottish missionaries, doesn't feel she belongs to either group; having grown up in Africa, she is not interested in being the well-bred Scottish woman her mother would like her to be. More than anything she dreams of seeing again the handsome police officer she's danced with. But more grisly circumstances bring Justin Tolliver to her family's home.

The body of Vera's uncle, Dr. Josiah Pennyman, is found with a tribesman’s spear in his back. Tolliver, an idealistic Assistant District Superintendent of Police, is assigned to the case. He first focuses on Gichinga Mbura, a Kikuyu medicine man who has been known to hatefully condemn Pennyman because Pennyman’s cures are increasingly preferred over his. But the spear belonged to the Maasai tribe, not Kikuyu, and it's doubtful Mbura would have used it to kill his enemy. Tolliver's superior wants him to arrest the medicine man and be done with it, but Tolliver pleads that he have the chance to prove the man's guilt. With thote help of Kwai Libazo, a tribal lieutenant, Tolliver discovers that others had reasons to hate Pennyman as well, and the list of suspects grows.
 
Annamaria Alfieri's Strange Gods is the first in a new series. Romantic and engaging, this mystery captures the beauty and the danger of the African wild and the complexities of imposing a culture on a foreign land.

*  I appreciate Minotaur Books/St. Martin's sending me this copy for review


"It's a clever plot and Le Floch is sympathetic, but it's the superb Parisian detail and atmosphere that truly beguiles."—The Times
This is the second volume of the Nicolas Le Floch Investigations.
October 1761 finds newly promoted Commissioner Le Floch on duty at a royal performance of Jean-Philippe Rameau's latest work. Events take a dramatic turn and Nicolas is soon embarked on a major investigation when the body of a courtier's son is found. The evidence points to suicide, but Le Floch's instincts tell him he is dealing with murder of the most gruesome kind.
Jean-François Parot is a diplomat and historian.

*This is going to be a strange little book, to be sure!  But I'm interested to try it.  With many thanks to Gallic Books and Meryl Zegarek Public Relations, Inc.!



Publishers Weekly
★ 02/03/2014
The latest from author and journalist Osborne (The Forgiven) is a searing portrait of addiction and despair set in the glittering world of Macau’s casinos. “Lord Doyle,” as he’s known to the other gamblers, is an English lawyer who has embezzled from a client and fled to Asia. Doyle spends his days and nights playing baccarat, which he calls “a game of ecstasy and doom.” At the tables he drinks fine wine, handles his cards wearing kid gloves, and slowly but surely loses. Doyle’s descriptions of the tables, the players, and the game’s siren allure are by turns touching, acid, and depressing. A fellow gamer has eyes that reveal “worlds of private pain.” A particularly garish casino inspires Doyle to muse, “There is something in kitsch that reminds you there is more to being alive than being alive.” But Doyle’s jaundiced eye barely masks his monstrous compulsion; indeed, the novel’s energetic portrait of the highs and lows of a gambler’s fortunes are as good as anything in the literature of addiction. Just when it seems Doyle’s luck may have at last run out, he’s rescued by Dao-Ming, a beautiful prostitute, whose genuine concern for him seems to rouse Doyle from his dissipation and downward spiral. But the novel subverts an easy storybook ending and reveals something much bleaker. Osborne’s intriguing Chinese milieu and exquisite prose mark this work as a standout. (Apr.)

* Looking forward to reading this small book.  With many thanks to Hogarth Books.
