Today s transition of power means the White House website is undergoing a few transitions of its own.We re approaching two hours after Trump officially became our 45th President, and his transition to the White House has already led to change — to the official White House website.Gone are all mentions sitewide of climate change.Also missing is the former LGBT rights page, which now redirects to an opt-in form to receive the Trump newsletter.I want to chalk this up to a transitional mistake, but the deletion of all mentions of climate change isn t as simple to explain away as a page that once had Obama s face on it.The latter seems a logical removal that could be re-added once staffers change it over to feature President Trump.

Slack har flyttat in på allt fler arbetsplatser.Och när fler och fler ansluter sig till de olika kanalerna börjar de också fyllas av långa – ibland väldigt långa – diskussioner.Det gör att flödet blir allt mer svåröverskådligt.I veckan lanserades en lösning som nu rullas ut i en ny uppdatering.Det handlar om att kunna lösgöra en diskussion ur ett flöde och föra äver den till en alldeles egen tråd i stället.Genom att man hovrar över ett meddelande kan man få fram möjligheten att starta den nya tråden och skriva sitt svar där i stället.

If a trailer distills a 2-hour film into its three-minute essentials, what would it look like to distill the film trailer?Strangely, it would look a lot like object recognition software.Støj, a Copenhagen coding studio, ran the trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street through an object-detection algorithm that identifies and labels everything on screen.In three separate videos, we essentially see how algorithms watch film: They label the essential — a tie, a wine glass, a chair — but leave the specifics out.It s like visual ad-libs.The first video filter uses object masking, so only objects recognised by the software appear.

The robot uprising has begun, but in a less than expected place with KFC using machines to guess what food you feel like.The fast food chain, has started installing facial recognition computers in its stores, with the screens able to predict what you might fancy for lunch just by looking at you.Currently being trialled at a restaurant in Beijing, the machine uses software to predict what you will order based on your age and gender as well as your estimated mood.In a press release, a Baidu spokesperson claimed the robot would suggest that "a male customer in his early 20s" order "a set meal of crispy chicken hamburger, roasted chucked wings and coke for lunch."By contrast, a "female customer in her 50s" would prefer "porridge and soybean milk for breakfast."By this standard, if you stumble in drunk gone midnight, then we can only predict it will offer you a family bucket for one with extra Popcorn Chicken and a couple of bottles of water.

I often hear that today's CMO, who is bringing extensive technology and data to the business, has earned a seat at the C-suite table.The CMO is not quite ready to own that seat, particularly not alongside the CFO and CRO.This opinion may not sit well with my fellow CMOs, but the truth is, many CMOs do not exhibit the mindset required to drive the revenue growth now expected of the position.It's not a lack of skill or experience that leads me to believe this, rather, I continue to see CMOs approach their business the same way they have for decades.Metrics that still don't matterFirst, traditional marketers rarely come with a business mindset.
