Elon Musk’s brain-machine interface company Neuralink showcased a pig with the company’s device at an event livestreamed on YouTube. One pig, Gertrude, had a device recording signals from an area of the brain linked to her snout. She’d had the implant for two months at the time of the demonstration. As Gertrude’s snout touched things, an array of dots and a series of noises indicated when more neurons were firing. Pigs have large parts of their brains that are devoted to the snout, a sensitive sensing instrument. “Like a Fitbit in your skull.” The design of the Neuralink device has changed since it was unveiled last year, rendering the device itself hard to see on Gertrude. It is now coin-shaped, and meant to sit flush with the skull,... Continue reading…

Boris Johnson and his fiancee Carrie Symonds have cut short their holiday in Scotland after pictures of their cottage were published.The PM, his partner and their baby son Wilfred – along with dog Dilyn – were reported to be staying in a remote three-bedroom house on the north-west coast.But The Sun said the family were forced to abandon their break because it was no longer considered safe for them to stay.A government source confirmed to the PA news agency that the PM has returned from Scotland.Pictures published in the Daily Mail on Friday showed a canvas bell tent erected near the cottage, which was said to boast “spectacular views” towards the islands of Raasay, Rona and Skye.However, the owner of the field where the tent appeared to be erected told the MailOnline Johnson had not asked for permission to use his land.Sheep farmer Kenny Cameron also claimed the PM climbed over a fence, using chairs from the cottage, rather than a gate.He told the news website: “Mr Johnson is meant to be leading the country and yet he is not setting a great example.“Usually if people want to go inside a fenced area, they ask for permission first, but I was not asked at all. It is only polite to ask.“He could have put up his tent in the garden of the cottage and there would have been no problem – but he didn’t do that.”Cameron said the PM could “easily have damaged the fence by climbing over it as a short cut”, and also criticised him for apparently lighting a bonfire after a period of dry weather.The Sun, quoting a senior Tory, said blame on the location of the PM’s holiday being revealed is being pointed at the SNP.To blame @theSNP for this is classic deflection from a Prime Minister who is under attack for his shambolic Government. It was not @theSNP who told the Daily Mail and for what its worth so many folk in the Highlands told me they knew where the PM was. https://t.co/0WSYk6lOQH— Ian Blackford (@Ianblackford_MP) August 22, 2020But the party’s Westminster leader Ian Blackford said on Twitter: “To blame @theSNP for this is classic deflection from a prime minister who is under attack for his shambolic government.“It was not @theSNP who told the Daily Mail and for what it’s worth so many folk in the Highlands told me they knew where the PM was.”Johnson had been expected back at Westminster next week, after he defied calls to return amid the A-level results fiasco.Related... 5 Fibs You Were Told This Week 5 Times Public Health England *Wasn't* To Blame For The Country's Terrible Coronavirus Response Birmingham Could Face Local Lockdown 'Within Days' Amid Spike In Coronavirus Cases

The advertising-technology industry hires internationally for many technical roles including engineering and product management. The Trade Desk and Roku — two of the largest firms that employ adtech staff — have market caps that exceed ad agency holding companies Publicis, Omnicom, and Interpublic Group. Business Insider analyzed the US Office of Foreign Labor Certification's 2019 disclosure data for six big adtech firms: Xandr, MediaMath, Amobee, Magnite, Roku, and The Trade Desk to see how much companies pay for roles. High-paying jobs for a director of engineering and VP of product management paid, respectively, $237,000 and $200,000, while lower-paying roles like a revenue operations specialist paid $62,000. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The adtech industry hires talent from all the world to create products and business models that help advertisers fine-tune their ad targeting. Similar to tech giants like Facebook, Google, and Amazon, adtech firms particularly look for international talent to fill technical roles like engineering, data scientists, and product management. Adtech firms have been facing growing pressure as advertisers slash spending during the coronavirus and investors' demand for solid returns has caused funding for some of the oldest firms like ad networks to dry up. Some smaller firms have sold or adopted new business models, while The Trade Desk and Roku have gotten bigger — market caps for those two companies combined now exceed the combined market caps for advertising agency holding companies WPP, Omnicom, Publicis, and Interpublic Group. Consolidation aside, some adtech firms continue to hire in areas like engineering and business development. US-based adtech companies file paperwork when they hire international employees and are required to list base salary. The US Department of Labor's Office of Foreign Labor Certification releases that information every year in one huge data dump. Business Insider analyzed data for adtech roles from six large firms —Amobee, Magnite, MediaMath, Roku, The Trade Desk, and Xandr — to see what adtech companies paid employees. The data is from the companies' fiscal year 2019 disclosure data for all foreign workers applying for both permanent green card visas and temporary H-1B, H1B1, and E-3 visas. The data does not include every type of visa, pay rates for US-born employees, or compensation beyond base salary. The listed salaries are determined by "prevailing wages," or industry standards for similar jobs with similar qualifications, which are also listed in the OFLC data. Here is a look at how adtech salaries break down by company and role. Spokespeople for the six companies either declined to comment or did not respond to requests for comment. Amobee paid an account executive $125,000 Singtel-owned Amobee has most recently focused on data-targeted TV ads and has ramped up adtech hiring as it has acquired companies like Turn and Videology to rival Facebook and Google's tech stack. LinkedIn data shows that Amobee has 860 employees. According to OFLC data, the company filed for at least 49 visas in 2019. Here are salaries and salary ranges for jobs at Amobee: Security engineer: $90,000 Account executive: $125,000 Senior account executive: $135,000 Senior salesforce developer: $155,000 Lead research engineer: $117,000 to $144,000 Software developer, applications: $121,077 to $148,000 Senior technical program manager: $150,000 Senior software engineer: $125,000 to $180,000 Principal software engineer: $200,000 Magnite paid a director of product management $196,000 Magnite is the product of a merger earlier this year of two longtime adtech firms, Rubicon Project and Telaria. The company laid off 8% of employees in May due to the coronavirus and decision to eliminate overlapping roles of the combined workforce. Magnite has about 280 employees, according to LinkedIn data. OFLC data shows Magnite filed for about 16 visas in 2019. Here are salaries and salary ranges for jobs at Rubicon Project last year before the merger: Revenue operations specialist: $62,000 Analyst: $65,000 Data scientist: $110,000 Software development engineer: $107,000 to $140,000 Software development engineering manager: $159,289 Director of product management: $196,000 Lead technical product manager: $138,000 to $198,000 MediaMath paid a client services lead $70,000 One of the oldest adtech firms, New York-based MediaMath has raised $607.5 million, including a $225 million round from private equity firm Searchlight Capital Partners in 2018. The firm has around 580 employees, according to LinkedIn data. The firm sells a demand-side platform that agencies and brands use to buy ads programmatically. In June, Digiday reported that MediaMath hired investment bank Centerview Partners to explore a possible sale. According to OFLC data, MediaMath filed for at least 14 visas in 2019. Here are salaries and salary ranges for jobs at MediaMath: Associate, supply analytics: $65,000 to $80,000 Client services lead: $70,000 Product management manager: $71,000 Senior analyst of revenue analytics and insights: $66,000 to $86,000 Senior software engineer: $135,000 Software engineer: $108,000 to $137,000 Director of engineering: $160,000 to $180,000 VP of product management, intelligence: $200,000 to $250,000 Roku paid a senior software designer for its ad platform up to $350,000 Roku became the earliest entry in the streaming video player space when CEO and future Netflix VP Anthony Wood launched the company in 2002. It was later incorporated in 2008 after he left Netflix to get Roku's streaming platforms or "sticks" into more homes and, eventually, turning the company into an ad giant. Roku went public after building an ad infrastructure and selling placements on its homescreen and remote control, launched a self-serve ad platform, and acquired DSP dataxu for $150 million in 2019. The company reported a recent boost in revenue thanks to growth in its ad business, and it has also begun licensing its operating system to smart TV makers. But it also faces challenges from the rise of smart TVs that do not use hardware or software from Roku or prime competitor Amazon, according to a recent report by The Information. Roku employs 1,100 people, according to its most recent financial results. Per OFLC data, the company filed for at least 96 visas in 2019. Here are some salaries and salary ranges for jobs across the company:  Analyst of inventory management: $95,000 to $110,000 Senior quality assurance engineer of new products: $130,000 Software engineer in test of advertising platform: $150,000 Senior software data engineer of advertising platform: $178,500 Senior software engineer of new products for Roku TV: $235,000 Data research analyst: $225,000 to $246,500 Senior data engineer: $167,200 to $250,098 Senior software engineer of advertising platform: $154,669 to $350,000 The Trade Desk paid a senior software engineer up to $265,000 Demand-side platform The Trade Desk has become the biggest and most valuable player in its space by cozying up to the ad agencies that serve as middlemen between clients and media companies. According to its most recent annual summary, The Trade Desk employs around 1,300 people. The Trade Desk hasn't been immune to the effects of the pandemic; shares plummeted nearly one-third in March as advertisers slashed budgets. But on an August 6 earnings call, CEO Jeff Green said his company is positioned to benefit from a rapidly changing TV landscape as more consumers stream their entertainment and news and advertising that might normally go to cable networks increasingly finds its way to connected TV. The Trade Desk filed for approximately 16 temporary US visas in 2019, according to the OFLC data set. These are salaries and salary ranges for jobs across the company: Data support analyst: $48,600 to $72,900 Senior associate of learning and development: $75,355 Senior account manager: $79,200 Director of business development: $120,000 to $150,000 Senior technical account manager: $138,000 to $155,250 Software engineer: $117,800 to $176,700 Senior software engineer: $233,000 to $265,000 Xandr paid a director of engineering $237,000 Xandr is AT&T's advertising business that was recently combined into WarnerMedia and is led by chief business officer Kirk McDonald. Xandr has more than 1,400 employees, according to LinkedIn data. Before AT&T formed Xandr in 2018, the telecom company acquired adtech firm AppNexus for a reported $1.6 billion to build up its adtech stack. Xandr is building a so-called advanced advertising business that uses telecom and TV data to target audiences across devices. The company made $362 million in the second quarter. According to DoL data, Xandr applied for about 46 US visas in 2019.  Here are salaries and salary ranges for jobs at Xandr: Associate director of product management: $129,000 to $185,000 Software engineer: $134,000 to $175,000 Senior monetization analyst: $140,000 Senior salesforce developer: $150,000 Senior systems administrator: $149,000 Director of engineering: $237,000 Read more of Business Insider's coverage of adtech companies: Meet 18 firms solving companies' giant problems selling and advertising on Amazon Walmart is pushing harder into advertising with a new tool that shows if people buy a product after seeing an ad for it Funding is drying up for digital ad firms. 2 founders turned investors who weathered the 2008 crash say what adtech companies can do to survive.
