The company’s new self-learning chip, codenamed Loihi, will raise the bar for AI. Intel this week announced a collaborative research initiative to encourage experimentation with its new self-learning research chip codenamed Loihi. The chip mimics how the brain functions by learning to operate based on data from the environment. It will learn to make inferences using the available data. On March 1, the company hosted the Neuro Inspired Computational Elements (NICE) workshop at its Oregon campus.
5G will offer users better speed and connectivity. With the advent of technologies like virtual reality (VR), artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IOT), wireless companies are working to offer better speed and connectivity to users. Last year, the wireless industry announced the first official standard for 5G—one that is expected to dole out about 10 times faster connectivity than 4G. This would be ideal to stream 8K videos or download a 3D movie in just 30 seconds.
Through its Community Help initiative, Facebook is trying to make the world a safe place. Earthquake in Nepal? Hurricane in Florida? Facebook wants to make sure that victims of these natural disasters get timely help. Last year, the social media giant launched the Community Help programme, making it easier for people to seek or ask for help during a crisis.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
