A comprehensive exploration of AI's natural language processing. Very interesting.
When traveling the world you see China everywhere. It IS the new colonial power. Different methods for sure but it's visible everywhere.
"The end is near" or something like that. I don't think the value of Bitcoin represents a bubble, but who knows, there is no real comparison. The external factor certainly exists as shown by the Chinese government regulating bitcoin and its value declining thereafter. Look where we are today.

The biggest danger of artificial intelligence #AI is the change in the job landscape: AI taking over white collar jobs is new.
Everybody is trying to bundle more things together. Seems like Twitter is being unbundled.
Using pasture and water flows to model migration patterns of farmers. Those patterns resemble the Silk Road closely. Good idea for finding more interesting things: try to figure out how farmers move about and maybe you'll find some hidden archeological treasures.
Intel bettting big on the future of cars. This generates quite a good bundle for Intel.
Isn't it funny how everything is interconnected? The US wants to do more coal? China gets the lead ok renewables. Politics is still the same everywhere: the Chinese coal sector doesn't like this path of course.
China’s coal companies and coal-dependent provinces are already using Trump administration rhetoric on climate change to press Beijing
Another view on Comic Sans: its good for people with dyslexia

Very interesting national study in Iceland on the consumption and family life of teens over multiple years. I do believe Iceland is a special case due to its demographic.

Efficient teams and what A Google research team found out. Psychological group stability is an interesting trait.
Interesting how #globalization can open up new #markets and #tastes if you are able to compare differences.
Moving towards #Niche markets seems to be the new best #strategy for "old technologies" such as the #PC
#Skype Teams? What about #Yammer? Not saying that teams might not be better, but MS really needs a strategy incorporating both products (or drop one)
Facebook now officially joins the enterprise social market. #socialworkplace
