London Will Put off Autonomous Cars Until at Least 2030, Cites Traffic Overflow and Unreliability of TechIt may be music to the ears of older cabbies and delivery drivers working into their twilight years, but London’s formal announcement that it won’t be legalizing driverless cars until at least the 2030s is still a sign that, eventually, autonomous vehicles will be rolling on the roads of the world’s largest municipalities.
For those who make a living or find pleasure writing Wikipedia articles, be aware that you may want to get as many Wikis possible completed while you still can. The bots might be coming for your gig sooner than later. A paper recently published through the Cornell University Library documents how Google is teaching bots to aggregate information found on various websites in order to create a Wikipedia page that aggregates its finding into a single text.
The intersection of drones and combat offers several potential applications. One professor from Georgia Tech has a specific application in mind for drones: carrying wounded soldiers and civilians off of the battlefield in combat zones that prove too tricky for other vehicles to navigate. Assistant professor Jonathan Rogers, who spends his working hours in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering, isn’t talking about passenger drones.
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".
