Long known to be a bit of a cynic in regards to artificial intelligence, SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk decided to do what he does best and put his wealth to good use.Along with Y Combinator president Sam Altman, LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman, and Musk’s PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, Musk hopes that this donation will to allow OpenAI to function freely without worrying about generating a financial return.In the company’s eyes, this fact alone is paramount to it prioritizing a “good outcome” over its own “self-interest.”“As a non-profit, our aim is to build value for everyone rather than shareholders,” OpenAI representatives said in a press release.“Researchers will be strongly encouraged to publish their work, whether as papers, blog posts, or code, and our patents (if any) will be shared with the world.We’ll freely collaborate with others across many institutions and expect to work with companies to research and deploy new technologies.”Despite the $1 billion pledge and celebrity affiliation, it isn’t completely obvious exactly how OpenAI intends to build value or collaborate outside of just plain research.“It’s hard to fathom how much human-level AI could benefit society, and it’s equally hard to imagine how much it could damage society if built or used incorrectly.”In addition to the founders, OpenAI plans on initially functioning with nine world-class research engineers and scientists, headlined by research director and Google Brain Team alum Ilya Sutskever.

And despite the overflow of data available to marketers today, some still struggle with identifying who you are.In her blog post, Principal Marketing Manager for HubSpot's optimization team Pamela Vaughan defines personas as fictional, generalized representations of your ideal customers.Taryn Collins, content manager and Web editor for cloud platform Acquia, points out that personas are representations of real customers while segments are groups of actual customers that share similar traits.In a blog post, Gartner's VP of Content Publishing Heather Pemberton Levy writes that personas are built from a combination of the following data points:Demographic income, geography, level of education, age Psychographic values, opinions, interests, aspirations, attitudes, and lifestyles Ethnographic observations of customers in their daily routines Transactional historical customer relationship data, first- and third-party purchase data, post-sale services Behavioral: engagement across channels Buffer Content Crafter Kevan Lee also encourages marketers to check their site analytics for traffic trends; do some social listening to see what problems or concerns customers are talking about; conduct surveys to learn about customers' goals, values, and pain points; and collect feedback from other departments, like customer service.Once marketers obtain this information, Lee says they should stitch it together to bring the persona to life.There's no perfect number of personas one needs to create, but Levy says four to eight is typical.
Streaming video may be what Netflix is best known for, but now the company also offers a tool for checking the speed of your personal internet connection.You don t have to be a Netflix member to use the website, nor does it throw any ads at you.You literally just go to the website and wait for it to quickly report its findings.When you re experiencing streaming issues, fast.com allows you to check the download speeds you re getting from your Internet service provider, wrote David Fullagar, Netflix s vice president of content delivery architecture, in a blog post published today.While they re certainly useful, the company s motives in launching them are likely not 100 percent altruistic.Plus, the tool may inspire users to opt for faster internet, which would in turn improve their streaming experience — and thus their Netflix satisfaction.

Netflix really wants to show you how fast or slow your Internet connection is, and to do so it has launched a new website at Fast.com that conveys the real-time speed of your connection to the Web — it s designed to give people greater insight and control of their Internet service.It looks like Netflix procured the Fast.com domain last month and, according to a filing with the United States Patent and Trademark Office USPTO , it s in the midst of trademarking the Fast logo.It works globally, on mobile Internet or domestic broadband, and it displays the speed of your connection, in megabits-per-second, at any given moment.The launch comes just a few weeks after Netflix introduced new cellular data controls to let users tweak the quality of their video streams, so that those on patchier connections can select lower-quality streams.Fast.com does seem like a random product on the surface, especially given the myriad of existing speed-test tools online, but Netflix wanted something of its own, that works in real-time, and which is devoid of any annoying distractions such as ads and other bells-and-whistles.Netflix s new speedtest tool actually links directly to Speedtest.net to allow you to compare the results and we can confirm they are accurate .We all want a faster, better Internet, yet Internet speeds vary greatly and can be affected by other users on your network or congestion with your Internet service provider, said David Fullagar, vice president of content delivery architecture at Netflix, in a blog post.Using Netflix servers, fast.com works like other globally available tools including speedtest.net, and the results should be similar in most cases.
Alibaba chairman Jack Ma has cancelled a speech he was scheduled to make at an event held by a global anti-counterfeiting body after the group suspended the Chinese company s membership.Ma was set to make the speech at the International Anti-Counterfeiting Coalition IACC conference in Washington, but dropped the commitment on Tuesday amid a backlash from brands and an independent investigation into the group s management.We believe the IACC s suspension of the general membership category is a step in the wrong direction and regrettable, said an Alibaba spokesperson in an online blog.Given the IACC s desire for additional time to reflect upon the viability of its general membership category, Alibaba feels it best that Jack Ma postpone his appearance, she said.Alibaba joined the group, which is primarily made up of brands, under a new type of intermediary membership category.Members including Gucci, Michael Kors and Tiffany & Co. reacted to the move by withdrawing their memberships in protest, claiming that Alibaba has not done enough to protect brands from counterfeit within China.The IACC suspended Alibaba s membership amid the brand backlash, as well as concerns over a conflict of interest concerning the group s chairman, who reportedly owns shares in Alibaba and maintained a close relationship with an Alibaba executive.Pitting brands against Alibaba and other industry participants in the hopes of prolonged litigation.In lieu of Jack Ma s Washington speech, Alibaba president Michael Evans will address IACC at an event in Orlando on the 19th of May, said the company.
Apple sent two engineers to a customer's house to troubleshoot after he wrote about how iTunes deleted swathes of his music collection, and his story subsequently went viral.The Cupertino company is now rolling out an update to iTunes in an attempt to solve the issue.James Pinkstone had detailed his frustrating experiences with Apple's music software in a blog post earlier this month entitled "Apple Stole My Music."In it, he laid out how 122 GB of music vanished from his library after signing up for subscription service Apple Music.Deleted.This time, the files remained, which was just one of many confounding elements of my whole saga.For example, one of the many confusing things about the initial file loss was that only most of my music files had disappeared.Let's hope the most recent update from Apple fixes the issue for good.SEE ALSO: Apple is on a charm offensive in ChinaNOW WATCH: There's a Keurig-inspired machine that makes individual tortillasLoading video...
Residents must sell their car to get $100 each month to spend on Uber and public transport.The incentive is geared towards reducing the number of cars on the road, and instead encourage property owners and tenants to either use Uber and other taxi companies, or local public transport systems.Uber also promises to cap shared UberPool journeys between the housing development, called Parkmerced, and nearby transport hubs at $5 per journey.Rob Rosania, founder of Maximus Real Estate Partners, which owns the 8,900-apartment development, said: "The immediate benefit to residents will be to decrease or eliminate the need for private car ownership, facilitate a more efficient commute, reduce transportation costs, and minimise the need for parking."The rest can be spent on regular taxis, public transport and other ride-sharing schemes.The move comes just days after IBTimes UK spoke with a Finnish startup called MaaS mobility as a service , which wants to offer a complete transportation service which replaces car ownership with a subscription service for car hire, Uber, ridesharing, public transport and more.

There are a number of CMS options to choose from – each aimed at a particular type of content:Website CMSDigital publishingDigital Asset Management DAM All of these CMS's have easy to use interfaces that are ideal for helping your business manage the content it produces.There are many systems to help you manage digital publications for in-bound marketing, and lastly if you have masses of images, text, video and graphics, a DAM can be a godsend.Large e-commerce websites or a simple blog can both be managed with a CMS.It's important to audit your precise needs now and what these may be in the future.It will also save you money compared to the costs of employing an SEO expert.For example, a page might be tagged as news, but it could also be tagged as a feature, and the keywords are likely to be things that describe what the content is about.
At its Google I/O developer conference, Google today is launching new tools that will make it easier for developers to have their apps do things with spreadsheets inside Google Sheets and presentations in Google Slides.Slides now has its own dedicated application programming interface API , and there is a second, more powerful Sheets API.This will not affect the existing Sheets API.The new Sheets API gives developers programmatic access to nearly all of the features a user can access in the Sheets web and mobile interfaces, Google Sheets product manager Tom Holman wrote in a blog post.The new Sheets API is available now, and the Slides API will come out in the next few months, Holman wrote.The enhancements make sense as Microsoft has been ramping up its Microsoft Graph for accessing data from Office 365 applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneDrive, and OneNote.The new API functionality isn t all that s new with Google Apps for developers.When the underlying data in the spreadsheet changes, an updated chart in the presentation is just one click away, Holman wrote.The corresponding functionality in Microsoft s Office applications is taking Excel charts and sticking them in Word or PowerPoint.People have been able to do both those things for a while.
Google has begun to build its own custom application-specific integrated circuit ASIC chip called tensor processing units TPUs , Google chief executive Sundar Pichai said today at the Google I/O developer conference in Mountain View, California.The name is inspired by Google s TensorFlow open source deep learning framework.When you use the Google Cloud Platform, you can take advantage of TPUs as well, Pichai said.Specialty hardware — sort of taking a cue from the holographic processing unit HPU inside Microsoft s HoloLens augmented reality headset — will not be the only thing that will make the Google public cloud stand out from market leader Amazon Web Services AWS .Also, over time Google will expose more and more machine learning APIs, Pichai said.Our goal is to lead the industry on machine learning and make that innovation available to our customers, Google distinguished hardware engineer Norm Jouppi wrote in a blog post.Building TPUs into our infrastructure stack will allow us to bring the power of Google to developers across software like TensorFlow and Cloud Machine Learning with advanced acceleration capabilities.Machine Learning is transforming how developers build intelligent applications that benefit customers and consumers, and we re excited to see the possibilities come to life.
