The intelligent robots are coming … soon. Now, whether you fall on the side of Elon Musk or Mark Zuckerberg in their doomsday bets, it doesn’t really matter. The technology is accelerating at the same rate as the cost is decreasing meaning that we’ll be living in an artificially intelligent world very soon. The first gathering of London’s new AI and Machine Learning in Enterprise Applications Meetup wasn’t too fussed with this war of tech giants.
As companies rely more on remote and co-located teams, Slack is increasingly leveraged for team communication. However, sometimes teams struggle with who should see what on a massive enterprise Slack deployments. And this lack of authentication means that a lot of people can preview links to information that they shouldn’t have access to. To help, Slack recently launched an application programming interface (API) for setting permissions on viewing content.
“We act like our software will last forever,” technology writer Daniel Beck said at the APItheDocs London conference. But what do we do when the plug is finally pulled? When folks in our biz get together to talk about documentation, we like to talk about the beginning — onboarding etc — and even the mature years — advocating for a new feature. But we don’t talk about the end. But pretty much everyone has experienced the loss of a tool they’ve come to rely upon.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
