On the Tagging options for #OCI

Tagging is the act of putting labels on objects. There is 1:n relation, meaning one object can have many labels applied to it.
Traditional systems that implement tags are usually backed with a “set” data structure: an unordered/unindexed collection. The key is the value. E.g: `Prod, Dev, CC127638, Finance`

[THREAD] China Coronavirus Outbreak
A deadly virus is spreading from Asia, affecting hundreds of people and resulting in dozens of deaths, in what may become a gloabal health epidemic. This thread contains news about the outbreak.
#Coronavirus #WuhanOutbreak #ChinaVirus #WarWatch
On Dec 30, 2019, Chinese authorities confirmed cases of pneumonia of unknown cause in Wuhan, Hubei Province. A team of national experts was sent to carry out detection tests. Patients at a local seafood market were put in quarantine.
#Coronavirus #WuhanOutbreak #ChinaVirus
Liu Youning, a professor of epidemiology and respiratory medicine, told the Global Times that the #coronavirus found in #Wuhan appears to be far less serious than the virus that caused the severe acute respiratory syndrome (#SARS) or the Middle East respiratory syndrome (#MERS).

To build the workforce of the future, we need to revolutionize how we learn
» weforum.org/agenda/2019/09…
We've entered the Fourth Industrial Revolution. We're living in a world in which it's predicted that 20-50% of tasks will be replaced by machines and #AI.
“If we do not change the way we teach, we’re going to be in trouble”. Ma
The knowledge-based approach of “200 years ago”, would "fail our kids", who would never be able to compete with machines. Children should be taught “#softskills” like independent thinking, values & teamwork.
Currently around 63% of students withdrawal. Scott Bolland explores the science of learning, the mismatch with how we teach, and the important role that #ArtificialIntelligence (#AI) could take in addressing the limitations in our current education system.

The @StanfordHAI (Human-centered #AI) Conference on #AiEthics, Policy, & Governance is getting started, live stream below. Speaker list is fantastic. Will be tweeting.

#machinelearning #data4good
@StanfordHAI "Silicon Valley, we have a problem" opens @erikbryn

Speaks to the 'great decoupling' - where productivity and GDP expand with technology, but don't take household incomes with them.

Part of the problem is lower-paid occupations have more automate-able tasks.
@StanfordHAI @erikbryn Both @Susan_Athey and @erikbryn speaking to ML adoption in private sector and the important distinction between labor replacing vs. labor augmenting #automation.

The "Suitability for Machine Learning" or SML scores from this

#LateNightThoughts What we're doing at @enjin is a piece of a puzzle. A puzzle that's, quite literally, the future of the human race. That future can be a grim, dark one, where power resides in the hands of the few - or an amazing, bright one, where power is decentralized. ->
-> Here's the funny thing: i'm not sure about the size of our piece of the puzzle, as it's becoming somewhat apparent that the next couple of decades are coming with two key changes: #automation ending jobs - and #gaming creating new ones. ->
-> Which means that a lot (if not most) of value will be created in virtual worlds, and it would be optimal if those are decentralized; a bad ending could be a centralized entity (goverment, corporation or both) seizing and destroying that value. ->

A tweetstorm on the book 'Bridgital Nation' by N Chandra

The book exudes positivism. Optimism, after all, is the fuel of audacious dreams. The book underlines India’s limitless potential for a spectacular digital India of tomorrow. (1/8)
Our potential is unmatched and our challenges are unique too.
It establishes 3 foundations of – vision, talent & tech – that need overhauling for digital India dream to be fulfilled. (2/8)
Vision - The book boldly advises breaking away from the western model overly dependent on automation aimed at replacing humans. Digitalisation & automation are scary if they are merely seen as replacing humans. (3/8)

It is not #automation that scares people, it is #inflation. Might sound odd, but what I mean is that the promise of a fully (or at least a more extensively) automated future seems like a threat because modern currencies are fundamentally inflationary. When we work and save, the
purchasing power of our saved funds diminishes with time. This is not a natural state of things, as many nowadays would assume. It is created. The reason prices tend to go up over time is that money loses its purchasing power. If you think about it, shouldn't innovations and
competition mean we become more productive and thus can get the same benefits (goods, services) at lower cost? That is exactly what is happening, and it is evident in some industries like hi-tech (smart phones, tablets, PCs). Wherever there are private businesses producing and

In April, the CIA declassified this image of the first-ever map drawn by a computer. cdn.muckrock.com/foia_files/201… (h/t @simongerman600 & @NatSecGeek)

It was generated in January 1967 and the preceding years are chock-full of gems on #innovation, #dataviz & #intelligence. Thread.
2. The 1960s bred the perfect storm for tech-enabled transformation at the CIA. A holy trinity for #defenceinnovation? Technology + necessity + political will seems like a pretty good recipe. But organisational barriers make it less straightforward.
3. CIA maps were hardly used during the Korean War, gave a “psychological boost” to the state of intel during Cuban Missile Crisis, & were relied upon in Vietnam. Automated mapping from the late 1960s helped improve accuracy & reduce clutter, building on other tech breakthroughs,

#Automation will displace millions of jobs, solidify inequality, and transform cities as neoliberalism did the Rustbelt. In response, everyone from the Alt-Right to Silicon Valley is now backing #UBI. But is keeping capitalism afloat really the solution? itsgoingdown.org/against-automa…
Over the last 20 years, 85% of the jobs lost in the US have been due to automation, not outsourcing. Over the next 10 years, many are predicting that 50% of US jobs will be destroyed or impacted due to automation. Many are former positions within the so-called "gig economy."
Many economic and automation experts predict that "boom towns" of today, like Las Vegas, in 10 years could face upwards of 65% of jobs being automated out of existence, becoming "the next Detroit."

An often misunderstood element of the next generation of credential based digital #identity systems is that they are no longer reliant on any single issuer being trustworthy. 1/n
Rather, they rely the combination of many issuers, and many #verifiableclaims in order to create a reliable web of trust. As with any network, this ability to establish trust between peers scales exponentially with the relationships inside it. 2/n
This network effect fundamentally shifts the power balance from centralized issuers, or federated identity managers, towards individual ID holders. The trade-off here is 1) the ease of #compliance and 2) #automation of services across contexts in an ever expanding ecosystem. 3/n

A #data informed look at how the #human experience of #lawyering has changed over time.

Just as #clients need better #value propositions, #law firms need better business models. Meaningful #legal #transformation will occur where the two intersect.

legalevolution.org/2019/02/pay-ho…
H/T to @augierakow @robsaccone for the post #inspirelegal 🤓 email chain that #inspired this tweetable.

(Bc I’m a tweetable factory. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
Another reaction to this @wihender post: we NEED to deal with #automation anxiety in #legal.

Legacy models of law practice aren’t built for the pace of #business and volume of #information of the #digital age.

More #hours from more #lawyers can’t be the default answer.

Today we release our annual @wiiw_news Autumn #Forecast Report, with macroeconomic projections for #CESEE out to 2020. Below, a thread on the highlights 1/13
#Growth still looks quite good for most, notable upgrades this time for #Poland, #Serbia, #Hungary. But downgrades for several #EU members, plus #Turkey, #Macedonia and #Belarus. 2/13
Over the #forecast period we expect best growth performance in #EUCEE and #WesternBalkans, although both will slow by 2020. Outlook for #CIS & #Ukraine weaker. 3/13

Like most IT people I love tools. And tools are absolutely vital to #Agile, esp. #automation of #development & #delivery. But when it comes to managing teams & processes, do #tools and #Agile always mix? Maybe not…
1. Software developers like #tools. No, they adore tools. They seem the most natural way to solve a problem, and they are familiar territory that any #delivery team is more than happy to enter. #Agile
2. But #tools provide little support for the *content* of most #Agile delivery tasks, from defining Product Vision to conducting Daily Stand-Up Meetings. They do support day-to-day workflow, reporting and recording, but at that level are often easily replaced by manual #methods.
