This week – the AI versus humans debate gets personal, with an enterprise twist. Plus: security whistleblowers get jobbed. Design thinking gets a revisit, and you get loads of acerbic whiffs. Lead story – AI risks, debates, and coaching networks – stories by Kurt Marko and Phil WainewrightMyPOV: Kurt and Phil had different takes on humans-versus-AI this week. It all depends if you think humans are the problem or the solution (brilliant problem solvers). Let’s hope it’s the latter.
At NRF 2018, the retail apocalypse gave way to a more optimistic narrative. But as the data from NRF’s consumer behavior panel showed, today’s consumer has raised the bar. How can retailers close the expectation gap? I’ve already published my retail takeaways from NRF 2018, AKA The Big Show. But there’s still room for deeper dives and data surprises. During a second day media panel, NRF and its partners shared new research on consumer behavior.
It’s easy for workplace diversity to become a useless, feel good cliché. But there are field lessons and data that should be reckoned with. Here’s my review of diginomica’s recent diversity coverage. Workplace diversity coverage isn’t easy. How do you extracting themes you can apply to your own projects? Diversity is highly personal and tied to work cultures. Yes, the tech industry has a diversity problem, but what works in one situation might not fly in another.
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".
