Tech giant Google has unveiled a new digital learning program in France, called “Les Ateliers Numériques,” which translates to “The Digital Workshop.” Google’s upcoming workshop program is meant to capitalize on the untapped potential for a digital revolution in France, and will work somewhat similarly to the digital learning part of the United States’ Grow With Google program, albeit with a wider target audience.
Softbank’s artificially intelligent robot, Pepper, has seen the first high-profile discontinuation of its use, with the diminutive Pepper having to hand in its badge at a grocery store in Scotland. Edinburgh’s Margiotta Food & Wine spent a week with a Pepper unit on its payroll. According to Luisa Margiotta, the owner’s daughter, the robot’s performance simply did not match up to the staff’s expectations.
A new artificial intelligence program called Volume is able to analyze 2D images and videos, and put objects from them into 3D spaces using augmented reality.

The Republican party's latest attack on the non-cis, non-straight community is nothing short of attempted genocide. The Hitler comparisons finally have real merit. What do you have to say for yourself, @realDonaldTrump ?
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".
