Platforms like Persado use AI to help these brands generate personalized ads based on the language a person is most likely to respond to.A recent update by Persado allows brands to create entire narratives using AI, incorporating each individual advertiser' unique voice and attributes to each campaign's context.Turns out, artificial intelligence isn't just helpful for powering chatbots and voice assistants.A suite of big name marketers like Microsoft and Gap have started relying on AI to optimize the content of their ads, tapping into ad tech startups like Persado to generate personalized ads based on the language a user is most likely to respond to.The Persado platform can be used across web, email, text and social ads, and using the right emotional language can help drive huge results for brands, says co-founder Assaf Baciu, lifting customer engagement and ultimately conversions significantly."By creating such cognitive content, we help brands motivate and engage with consumers better."
Tangled cords connect the components mounted to its metal base to a bank of ports on an overhead shelf.The result is an apparatus that looks equal parts mysterious, serious, and silly, like the kind of imaging device Doc Brown might have invented in Back to the Future, if he hadn't been busy building a time-traveling DeLorean.That's because it's built to do something no other microscope can: Peer inside the embryo of a living mammal and record crisp footage of its rapid transformation from a blob of undifferentiated cells into the complex structures that give rise to the tissues and organs of a living body—from brain to gut to beating heart."We wanted to create a technology that would allow us to observe those processes at the level of single cells, to see what those cells are doing, what complex behaviors they're exhibiting, how they're moving and dividing," Keller says.But both of those animals, which are not only small but see-through, are relatively simple to image.Mammals are a different story.

Matt Lerner, who has for the last few years effectively been 500 Startups’ main person in London, is reducing his role at the Silicon Valley-based VC fund and accelerator to pursue a new business of his own.The idea, he tells me, is to build on his work running the 500 Startups London “Distro Dojo” growth marketing program, but in a way that opens it up to more startups in the U.K. and across Europe that are in need of building a self-sufficient growth strategy.That’s because any company is free to approach Heretix, which is initially acting as a simple gun for hire (although you still need to apply) and, unlike Distro Dojo, isn’t a program tied to an equity investment.“We’re not an agency, and we’re not a bootcamp,” says Lerner, who will continue to head up 500 Startups’ London office and support its U.K. portfolio.Our first goal is to help them double, triple or 10x their growth.To provide further context, Lerner says to think back to 2015 when he left PayPal to join 500 Startups in London, a city that wasn’t short of accelerators but was facing a “Series A Crunch”.

The Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite passed over Typhoon Kong-Rey moving through the Northwestern Pacific Ocean and found heaviest rainfall occurring in the storm's eyewall.The eyewall of a tropical cyclone refers to the powerful thunderstorms that form a ring around the open eye.Around the eye, strong uplift of air creates powerful thunderstorms that extend high into the troposphere.The GPM core observatory satellite passed over Typhoon Kong-Rey on Oct. 3 at 4:36 a.m. EDT (0836 UTC) and measured rainfall rates occurring within the storm.Data collected by the GPM satellite's Microwave Imager (GMI) showed that powerful storms in the northeastern eyewall were producing the heaviest rainfall.Those storms were producing rainfall at a rate greater than 1.4 inches per hour.

If you’re a writer who tends to be easily distracted, the Freewrite Traveler may be just what you need.The device is a better looking, more compact version of the Freewrite machine that launched a couple of years ago, and aims to divert you from your procrastination method of choice so that you can focus on the writing task in hand.Created by New York-based Astrohaus, what the Traveler doesn’t feature is the reason you might want to get it.There’s really little more than a keyboard, a display, and an internet connection so you can save your work to the cloud.One of the main strengths of the Traveler over its predecessor is its lightweight, foldable, and altogether more portable design, hence its name.Tipping the scales at four pounds, the original Freewrite device was a hefty, bulky lump of a thing, while the Traveler weigh in at a more manageable 1.8 pounds.
After a couple of years during which Chrome OS powered mostly low-priced notebooks and the occasional premium 2-in-1, things are starting to look up for Chromebook buyers.A new wave of laptops is arriving over the next several months that promise to be more well-made, innovative, and powerful.That means that HP’s $580 Chromebook x2 takes on Google’s high-end Pixelbook that starts at around $750 on sale.The Chromebook x2 certainly looks and feels the part of a genuine challenger to the Pixelbook.It also has a forward-thinking design, with a keyboard base that the tablet magnetically snaps into and creates a traditional clamshell notebook that’s stable in the lap.HP also gave the Chromebook x2 some great aesthetics, with the back of the tablet sporting a “ceramic white” color scheme that’s, in fact, an anodized electrodeposition (AED) coating promising to help the tablet stay scratch-free and lovely.

With the smart home becoming more of a reality, new research from Open-Xchange suggests the largely ignored security market could be a money-spinner for the telco industry.“The market for connected devices is ballooning as we all scramble to fill our homes with the latest gadgets, all aimed at making our lives simpler,” said Rafael Laguna, CEO of Open-Xchange.“Yet, the convenience of connected home technology should not let us neglect our family’s online privacy and protection.”According to the research from Open-Xchange, the average household contains five smart home devices, though only 15% of UK parents use cyber-software or apps to control access and protect the IoT connected devices.28% of UK parents have no plans to strengthen security measures for their connected devices, though 85% of them would leave a service provider in the event of a data breach.17% do not use any protection at all, and 67% use anti-virus and anti-spam software to protect only their desktop devices from malware, adware and phishing tactics.

Instagram's cofounders, Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, are quitting the Facebook-owned company.Sources tell Business Insider there have been "tensions" between the two companies.The Instagram cofounders' Monday night bombshell, that they were resigning from Facebook, has all the telltale signs of a bad breakup.To many Facebook employees, Instagram people are arrogant, "too cool for school," and not team players.Instagram has an extremely heavy focus on design, with significant thought going into new products before launch, with the intent to perfect them before unveiling them to the world.Although Systrom and Krieger were always careful to be diplomatic in public comments about the relationship with Facebook, the growing pressure from Facebook to integrate the two platforms was a longstanding source of tension that required them to push back at times and to acquiesce at others.
Science projects within controversial fields such as synthetic biology could benefit from experimenting with communication settings in which experts share their thoughts and feelings with each other and the public.This allows for a more open and constructive dialogue with the public about research - and may even generate new research ideas, a new PhD thesis shows.Studies have shown that affect and emotion shape the way the public reacts to new scientific ideas and discoveries, particularly controversial ones.Do they not have doubts, fears and hopes about their projects that shape the way they think and communicate about their research?This was one of the central questions which science communicator Britt Wray addressed in her PhD project at the University of Copenhagen:"The field of synthetic biology, which I have studied in this thesis, has often been criticized for an instrumental approach to public engagement that merely aims to gain public acceptance of its practices; but treating science communication as something that is just designed to teach the facts and convince the public of the merits of a particular scientific field may be counter-productive and generate distrust," Britt Wray explains.
Microsoft is shaking up the search boxes found in Bing, Office, Windows, Teams, and everywhere else it shows up in productivity apps.Under the common banner "Microsoft Search" the plan is to provide a consistent, unified view of search results that encompasses not just your own documents and emails but also your organization's content and conversations.With the change, the search bar will become more prominent, with consistent behavior wherever it appears.This will include new features such as automatic suggestions—merely clicking the search box will present personalized results, such as documents you've edited recently or contacts you email regularly—and the ability to search for commands within the application.This means that instead of hunting through ribbons and dialog boxes, you'll be able to search for an application function and activate it from the search results.The new search will subsume Windows search and show local files among its results.
Robotutvecklarna på Stanford Univerity har tagit fram en ny version av sin "artiga" robot Jackrabbot vars syfte är att lära sig hur man tar sig fram utan att störa människor som är i närheten.Roboten kan förflytta sig helt autonomt och har programmerats så att den håller avstånden till människor och annat den stöter på för att inte störa sin omgivning.Ashwini Pokle är en av studenterna som varit inblandade i utvecklingen av Jackrabbot 2 och han säger i ett pressmeddelande:"There are many behaviors that we humans subconsciously follow – when I’m walking through crowds, I maintain personal distance or, if I’m talking with you, someone wouldn’t go between us and interrupt.We’re working on these deep learning algorithms so that the robot can adapt these behaviors and be more polite to people."De största skillnaderna mellan ursprungsversionen av Jackrabbot och den nya versionen är att roboten nu försetts med kameror som kan se i 360 grader samt en arm, se bild nedan, som roboten kan använda när den vill gestikulera eller hytta med näven mot förbipasserande.
