Isentia is turning its attention towards adopting a data-driven content strategy for clients, after announcing that it will be discontinuing the King Content brand and closing offices in Hong Kong and New York, two years after investing $37.8m in the content marketing agency.In a conference call with The Drum on Tuesday, David Liu (chief executive, Asia), Richard Spencer (chief marketing officer) and Jason Lee (commercial director) shared that the media intelligence group will continue to invest in technology that will help them uncover data intelligence and predict new trends in order to formulate data-driven content strategy, which they claimed are what their clients are looking for now.“We can also manage them appropriately with our resources, and what clients are getting when they transact with Isentia is the same high level as regardless of whatever organisation they are working with because we are all part of this new business that is focused on real data intelligence, how genuine are our data we gather, whether from media, social media or other platform.“The other big thing is the huge investment we are making in technology on an annual basis, which allows us to gather data more effectively and how we need to drive best practices with technology and ingest data from a wide number of countries, picking up to 18 languages at one time.“We effectively moving the business model from its media monitoring roots through to media intelligence and into data intelligence in real terms, ultimately from our perspective, how we move from data intelligence through to predictive analysis, telling our clients what is happening next, instead of what is happening today.”Liu noted that while most of Isentia’s clients are still primarily looking at media monitoring, reports and data interpretation, more and more clients are starting to look at the data analytics and data interpretation part of its data, which is one of the key reasons for the new approach.

Elon Musk tweeted some warnings about artificial intelligence on Friday night."If you're not concerned about AI safety, you should be.Vastly more risk than North Korea," Musk tweeted after his $1 billion startup, OpenAI, made a surprise appearance at a $24 million video game tournament Friday night, beating the world's best players in the video game, "Dota 2."Musk claimed OpenAI's bot was the first to beat the world's best players in competitive eSports, but quickly warned that increasingly powerful artificial intelligence like OpenAI's bot — which learned by playing a "thousand lifetimes" of matches against itself — would eventually need to be reined in for our own safety."Nobody likes being regulated, but everything (cars, planes, food, drugs, etc) that's a danger to the public is regulated.AI should be too," Musk said in another tweet on Friday night.

Snapchat announced that its audience grew to 173 million daily users in Q2.That's a nice improvement from the 143 million users it had one year ago, but it was 2 million users shy of the level Wall Street expected.Snapchat's stronghold continues to be in North America, as we can see in this chart from Statista.While Europe is also a big market for Snapchat, the company is not adding users as quickly in that region.Snapchat's growth in the rest of the world continues to lag, perhaps owing to the longrunning challenges it has had with the version of its app for Android — the more popular smartphone operating system outside the US.During Snap's Q2 conference call on Thursday, CEO Evan Spiegel said the company had made improvements with its Android app, but that certain issues required more significant structural changes that could drag into 2018.

We do love it when Chinese phone brands go out and get a little creative with their videos.Over the years we’ve seen phones smash nuts, hammer nails, set on fire, ran over, frozen, dropped from a drone, cut in half and more.Blackview though has taken its latest Android smartphone to the swimming pool and to the beach to test the phone in a few real life situations, after all there’s no point having a phone that can survive being dropped from a drone if it can’t survive your day to day life.In the video below we see the Blackview BV8000 Pro used at the swimming pool, dunked in water, dropped and even used as a makeshift shovel for digging holes on the beach.The Blackview BV8000 Pro is the latest in a range of performance outdoor handset from Blackview, and takes what the phone maker learned from the BV6000 and BV7000 Pro to the next level.The new phone boasts improved camera performance and better specs than before.

The ascendance of the so-called “hard right” in the US and the Trump administration’s work to protect its power means it’s unlikely the movement will be beaten by Democrats or left leaning parties at this point.They show leaders which of their members are voters, how many votes they need to flip an election, and help them form alliances to get the votes they need to win.Turnout for party primaries in midterm years is extremely low (10-14% of registered voters).At that point Democrats were getting roasted on Obamacare.This loss of compromise between parties is clearly damaging pragmatic politics and thus its ability to deal with the complex problems the country faces.For example, the user will now know that across the alliance, they have 4,000 unique Republican primary voters in a district and it will take 7,000 votes to win the next election.

I went to the massive Eaton Centre mall in Toronto yesterday, and the most packed store there, by far, was the Apple store.This isn't too much of a surprise, considering Apple's popularity — plus it's fun just to play around with the latest phones, tablets and computers on display, even if you don't intend on buying them.That said, I'm guessing dozens of people in that store were there to buy a new phone, computer, or accessory.And I'm wondering how many of them knew that a brand-new iPhone, and likely a bevy of other Apple products, are right around the corner.My advice to them, and anyone considering visiting an Apple store in the next month: Hold off on buying right now, if you can.Last year, Apple held two major fall events — and discounted many of its products for the holidays in both November and December.
