Join us for this live webinar on Web Personalization Thursday, October 22 at 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern.A few years ago, if the theme of “personalization” had emerged in your marketing circles, most industry people would have referred to Amazon as the gold standard.Amazon still is the Prime, free-shipping standard when it comes to knowing what products I want and when I want them.By way of personalization, Amazon transformed online shopping into a web experience (and we know how many times “customer experience” comes up in marketing meetings).Companies of all sizes are following Amazon’s lead and many have been seeing huge results.In fact, according to VB Insight analyst Andrew Jones, in his latest report on website personalization, 87 percent of those companies have seen a lift of at least 5 percent in their most important metrics.
In research published in the journal Evidence Based Mental Health, a team at the University of Liverpool found that many mental health apps and online programmes lack "an underlying evidence base, a lack of scientific credibility and limited clinical effectiveness".Simon Leigh, co-author of the study, argues that apps should be "well-informed, scientifically credible, peer reviewed and evidence based"."The rate at which apps come out is always going to outweigh the rate at which they can be evaluated.Mental health apps have grown in popularity at a time when psychological services have faced an increased demand and decreased resources.Many people find it hard to access services because of geography, because of mental ill health, because of physical disability.We've also found that, in the 50% of cases that do get to a GP, they're not able to guide mental health problems adequately."

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.
2000 randomly selected, the Coil of unemployment benefits covered by the Finnish will soon receive a letter from Kela.Their account started from January onwards, come to the monthly 560 for the basic income.These 2000 people from different parts of Finland have been selected by lottery to the government's basic income experiment of the first phase of the sample.They get the basic income for a period of two years i.e. 2017-2018.the spool of law unit chief Marjukka Turunen told the New Finland that the announcement of the selection of incoming mail slot a little after christmas.This is a research-based perspective that you can not refuse, because then it will outfit a selection.
Finnish science is in stable condition as well as the world average, occurs in the Finnish academy of Science space 2016 -report.for Example, the number of scientific publications per capita in many OECD countries compared with the highest, and Finnish researchers ' international co-publications share has clearly grown in recent years.in the Years 2011-2014 international co-publications was more than half, when in the early 1990s, the number was 27 percent.the number of Scientific publications over the last ten years elevated a little bit, but other research-intensive countries are, however, progressed the fastest.according to the Report of Finland of the above were, for example, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden and Denmark.University research expenditures last year were 1.45 billion euros, of which more than half of universities basic funding.

Ten years ago, I was in the early stages of the PhD programme in robotics at Carnegie Mellon University.The potential of these technologies was incredible, but up to that point, the focus had been overwhelmingly on applications in areas such as defence, space, manufacturing or pure research.Then, top autonomous driving research was funded almost exclusively by Darpa and other government agencies, and although large-scale autonomous cars have always been one of the dreams of robotics researchers, we would have all been shocked to see what is happening today: dozens of the biggest companies in the world led by a search-engine company , as well as highly funded startups, are collectively investing billions of dollars at the pursuit of the commercial autonomous car.Now there is a sense of inevitability to autonomous cars being a staple of our daily lives within a decade or sooner , with the only questions being the pace at which they will take over, and which of the companies chasing this prize will pull away from the pack.These developments in transportation are a great template for how robotics can disrupt even the most entrenched industries, and highlights a few themes that we will begin to see more frequently:• Incumbents will rarely be the ones that disrupt their own spaces.

About 8,000 new cars sold to western car Tommi Köninki is a little stumped."in principle, I consider it incomprehensible, if the minister of the Bernese research group really raised the car tax elimination now in January and the executive not happen until almost a year later.This is a direct cost impact to the tax, so changing it would follow a dramatic impact on the entire industry.If the change is seen as a necessary, decision-making should be really fast", Köninki said."I Hope things dealing with regard to that Finnish consumers have hundreds of thousands of new cars, the value of which changes radically if the car tax is removed without proper compensation car track car owners.This could be the whole national economy devastating, because more than half of these cars have been financed with borrowed money."
