It’s one of the hardest jobs a CIO has to do: keep legacy technology up and running while embracing a torrent of new applications and services. And the job is only getting harder as pressure mounts to increase the speed of operations, by responding to customer demand faster – usually by getting code into production faster. This puts even more pressure on the CIO to modernize systems of record, while integrating new systems of engagement and intelligence.
“Autonomy gives people a sense something is in control, and we have a tendency to overestimate technology’s capabilities.” -Nidhi KalraWe’ve made incredible gains when it comes to autonomous vehicles, but today the market finds itself in a messy interim period. We’re moving beyond automation (like cruise control) but have not yet made it to full autonomy, which will allow a car to operate independently of the human inside.
In case you didn’t notice, natural language processing made a huge leap forward last week, as an AI application beat a human in a reading comprehension test for the first time ever. The Stanford Question Answering Dataset (SQuAD), which uses crowdsourced approach to approximate a human level of reading comprehension, was surpassed by Microsoft on January 3rd, then by e-commerce giant Alibaba on January 5th.
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".
