Similarly, in the B2B world, artificial intelligence (AI) and predictive technologies represent a disruptive shift that’s forcing companies to reimagine how they operate.With that in mind, here are eight questions everyone is asking about self-driving cars, each of which has an important parallel that helps frame AI’s impact on business and society at large.Google’s self-driving cars have already driven 1,210,676 miles yet, as of July this year, there had only been 14 accidents — all caused by human error, not by the software.Given the fact that around 33,000 people die in traffic accidents in the U.S. every year, and much of blame falls to distracted drivers, there is a huge opportunity to make our roads safer.In the B2B world, very few of our decisions are life or death, but there is still important revenue at stake.When the models are live, someone needs to monitor the impact of any changes and watch for drift in performance to ensure continued accuracy.

An underwater photo shoot that went terribly wrong has claimed the life of popular model in Taiwan.This was not a case of an inexperienced diver getting in over their head either, Ku was an amateur diver with over 3 years of diving experience.She is reported to have volunteered to dive in those waters to help pick up trash from the seabed in the past.Photographers should always take the safety and well-being of his or her clients and crew into account when planning a shoot.If whoever is planning the shoot can not, or will not, tell you what they are, then do not participate.No shoot is worth risking your life.
Among his many abilities is to tengyun , or mount a cloud and fly.The company we re introducing today is called Zhubajie .Scaling up the platform and innovating our products involved a strong element of trial-and-error along the way, said Zhu Yueming, founder and CEO of Zhubajie.Zhu Mingyue, founder and CEO of Zbj.com photo from Zhubajie But Zhu soon found that mere product innovation was not sufficient, as users tended to avoid paying commission and leave the platform once they privately set up contacts.Its major projects fall in three categories: graphic design, web construction, and marketingEmployers can publish a task in either a rewards system, where a best solution is chosen from all submissions, or in a bidding system, where a service provider is chosen for its qualifications and rate before the service is provided.Similar to Witkey, where users share knowledge, share experience, and purchase services and information, Zhubajie used to have three major income sources: commission, ad revenue, and membership fees.The program will negotiate with 120 cities and cover 36 of them within this year, and the company will establish a VC fund to support local enterprises.To build trust between customers and the platform, Zhubajie offers online services called Fuwubao , which guarantees that money is transferred effectively, and that compensation is available should a contract be breached.The platform now has over 15 million users, among which 10 million are service providers and five million are domestic and overseas employers, creating revenue of RMB 7.5 billion in 2015.Top photo screened from Zhubajie s official site Zbj.com
Google announced on Google that they ve added a new filter to the Search Analytics report within Google Search Console to let you filter those reports by AMP pages.Now you can see how people discovered your AMP pages within the mobile search results.The feature aims at answering the question, Which queries lead to my AMP pages being shown in the mobile search results?Select AMP from that list.It will then allow you to compare how the AMP metrics compete against other search results links.Here is a screen shot:In January, Google added AMP error reports to the Google Search Console that helped webmasters debug implementation errors of their AMP pages.
It s based on existing technology, including Google Now.The assistant will power Google s upcoming Amazon Echo competitor, Google Home.Speaking at the beginning of the keynote at the Google I/O developer conference in Mountain View, California, Google chief executive Sundar Pichai described the technology as a conversational assistant that can carry on an ongoing two-way dialogue.We want to be there for our users asking them, How can I help?'Pichai said.The technology is voice-activated and available across devices, but the interface is packaged up inside of a chatbot — something like, say, Facebook Messenger s M. We are getting ready to launch something later this year, Pichai said.The Google Assistant is built into the Allo mobile messaging app, which is also being introduced today.Over the years Google has amassed a whole lot of AI talent and technology.And the systems are regularly improving — last year at I/O Google chief executive Sundar Pichai said Google s speech recognition technology was down to an 8 percent word error rate.Indeed, today Pichai said that 1 in every 5 Google search queries on Android in the U.S. is a voice query.But even though Google s AI technology represents value for the company internally, in the past year Google has shared some of that technology with the rest of the world as open source code.Now it s clear that Google is a few steps ahead of Apple.Earlier this week The Information reported that Google would give third-party developers access to speech recognition, some aspects of the Google Now personal digital assistant, and Android s Google Now On Tap feature for recognizing known entities mentioned in text onscreen and providing explanations and relevant links.While the world s biggest technology companies have been fixated on chatbots lately, the whole idea itself is not new.Voice-activated assistants like the Alexa-powered Amazon Echo speaker are another emerging medium, but currently bots seem more likely to be adopted by the masses.
If the claims are accurate, Facebook contractors have depressed some conservative news, and their curatorial hand affects the Facebook Trending list more than the public realizes.As this conversation swirls around intentions and explicit manipulation, there are some significant issues missing.As we move into the development of algorithmic models to shape editorial decisions and curation, we need to find a sophisticated way of grappling with the biases that shape development, training sets, quality assurance, and error correction, not to mention an explicit act of human judgment.What is of concern right now is not that human beings are playing a role in shaping the news — they always have — it is the veneer of objectivity provided by Facebook s interface, the claims of neutrality enabled by the integration of algorithmic processes, and the assumption that what is prioritized reflects only the interests and actions of the users the public sphere and not those of Facebook, advertisers, or other powerful entities.As part of this process, we convened a workshop and have produced a series of documents that we think are valuable to the conversation:These documents provide historical context, highlight how media has always been engaged in power struggles, showcase the challenges that new media face, and offer case studies that reveal the complexities going forward.My hope is that we quickly leave the state of fear and start imagining mechanisms of accountability that we, as a society, can live with.
iOS 9.3.2 update bricks 9.7in iPad Pro AppleThe latest iOS 9.3.2 update that was aimed at addressing a bunch of bug issues seems to be causing problems for owners of the 9.7in iPad Pro who noticed the issue soon after installing the over-the-air update.According to the Apple support site, error 56 could be due to a hardware issue, for which users are advised to ensure their iOS device is running on the latest version of iTunes; check for issues with third-party security software; make sure the USB cable, computer and network are reliable.Even after doing all these, if you still see the error, you must contact Apple support.Those unable to restore their device through iTunes should contact Apple support."Apple rolled out the iOS 9.3.2 for compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners recently to fix bugs and improve the security of the iOS devices.A few of the notable fixes are for issues such as Bluetooth accessories experiencing audio quality issues when paired to iPhone SE, dictionary definition failing, typing email addresses when using the Japanese Kana keyboard in Mail and Messages and issue with VoiceOver using the Alexa voice and MDM servers from installing custom B2B apps.
In machine learning, the ultimate goal is to train a machine or computer to learn and infer like a human, taking into account much more information and making better decisions in exponentially less time than humans are able to do.At present, most unsupervised learning systems still require some human feedback and training after initial data analysis.In contrast, unsupervised learning systems freely analyze patterns in unlabeled data, with no corresponding error or reward linked to a conclusion.Despite significant progress, the underlying processes of unsupervised learning, what s really happening at the level of the artificial neurons, is still a mystery.Risks include building models that fail or don t work in unexpected situations; however, the real gap lies in a lack of explanation by the system for its findings or results, human beings are still the ultimate interpreters.It may be that an unsupervised learning system comes up with a set of conclusions that are nonsensical or seemingly indecipherable by human beings, so finding ways to synthesize analysis with meaning is a significant code that still needs to be cracked.
The other day we wrote about James Pink Stone, whose music libraries, including their own compositions were erased by iTunes and Apple Music. Several other users have contacted Apple with similar complaints, and the company has promised to add additional security controls in iTunes to prevent it from happening again - despite the fact that its developers have not been able to recreate the bug. In a new blog report writes Pink least now how far Apple went to try to figure out what the error is: The company sent two developers, Tom and Ezra, from Cupertino to Pink Stone's home in Atlanta for two days of troubleshooting. Despite investigations by a special version of iTunes that logged all the events and several hours of data collection developers could not find fault.

The company says its focus is on making sure the experiment is "safe for everyone on the road".A Ford Fusion will be taking to the streets of Pittsburgh to "collect mapping data" and "test its self-driving capacities", though a trained driver will be present in the cars at all time.This are the first photographs released of the self-driving car, which has been spotted around the city for over a year.Uber say it's part of a mission to develop self-driving technology, saying that self-driving cars have the potential to "save millions of lives and improve quality of life for people around the world"."1.3 million people die every year in car accidents, 94 per cent of which involve human error," Uber said in a statement."In the future we believe this technology will mean less congestion, more affordable and accessible transportation and far fewer lives lost in car accidents."
The souped-up hybrid Ford Fusion will be collecting mapping data and testing its self-driving capabilities, all with a trained driver behind the wheel to monitor the car s performance.Steel City residents likely won t have any trouble recognizing the car — it s marked with the Uber logo and is outfitted with high-tech gadgets including radar sensors, laser scanners and cameras.While Uber says it s still in the early days of testing, it appears to be the first ride-hailing company to get an autonomous car on the road.Earlier this month Lyft announced a plan to have self-driving electric cars on public roads within a year, via a partnership with General Motors.And Apple s recent $1 billion investment in Chinese ride-hailing company Didi Chuxing has led to speculation about how the deal could advance Apple s secretive Project Titan self-driving car project.1.3 million people die every year in car accidents — 94% of those accidents involve human error, the company wrote in its blog post.In the future we believe this technology will mean less congestion, more affordable and accessible transportation, and far fewer lives lost in car accidents.The company says it chose Pittsburgh because of the city s strong engineering talent and research facilities — and it s an ideal environment to test the self-driving car on a variety of road types, traffic patters and weather conditions.Photo: Uber s self-driving car is hitting the road in Pittsburgh.
A specially outfitted hybrid Ford Fusion—complete with radars, laser scanners and high resolution cameras to map details of the environment—will be on the streets of Pittsburgh in coming weeks, collecting mapping data and testing its self-driving abilities.Uber said a trained driver will be in the driver s seat monitoring operations while the car is in self-driving mode.The tests are part of Uber s efforts, still in the early stages, to develop autonomous driving technology.Self-driving cars have the potential to save millions of lives and improve quality of life for people around the world, Uber said in a blog post on its site, citing a statistic that 94% of car accidents that result in the loss of live involve human error.Earlier this month, rival Lyft Inc. and its partner General Motors Co. GM -1.46 % said the companies would begin testing a fleet of self-driving electric taxis on public roads.Federal regulators are working to help companies figure out how to meet safety standards when designing cars.
The AutoRally platform is technically still a toy, but at almost 40-inches in length and with a top-speed of 62 miles per hour, it s a perfect fifth-scale replica of a human-sized car.After a couple of low-speed human-controlled practice laps on a dirt track to familiarize the truck s AI with the simple course, the vehicle was left to navigate it all on its own, while trying to maintain a constant speed of around 18 miles per hour.Using specially-developed algorithms that calculate 2,560 different possible trajectories for the oncoming two-and-a-half seconds of travel, the truck calculates the best possible way to safely navigate a corner or straightaway all by itself using its steering, acceleration, and braking.Most of the time that includes power-sliding around a corner to maintain as much of its speed as possible—a skill that the little truck learns all by itself through trial and error.The key innovation here isn t about teaching autonomous cars how to safely drift around corners at high speeds—as cool as it looks.Slowing to a crawl every time it rains will keep self-driving cars safe, but they won t do the world any favors when it comes to traffic jams.
Arlanda tower Photographer: CAA Parts of the airspace was closed for hours because of technical problems in air traffic at several airports in Sweden. Early in the afternoon, the computer error temporarily resolved, and traffic could be resumed, according to CAA. Many of us are stuck here waiting for an answer, she says. Since it is always up to the captain if you want to land at the airport or fly to another. Jan Ohlsson, aviation journalist and writer, calling the incident "both unacceptable and inappropriate": - Somebody must now take responsibility for it not to happen again. comments Welcome to have your say on new technologies.
