Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon and his management team are ditching their stuffy offices and moving to an open floor plan closer to the people so they can feel the buzz of New York headquarters

  • He's moving the firm's executive offices from the 41st floor – where employees speak in hushed tones and company leaders have closed door offices with sweeping views of the city skyline – down among the bank's other employees, according to an internal memo sent this morning and reviewed by Business Insider.
  • The executive offices will then reside on the 12th floor, one level up from the firm's Sky Lobby, a gathering place for employees with a coffee bar.
  • In some respects, the renovation follows one made several years ago by the firm's asset management division, which moved many of its employees from offices or cubicles higher in the headquarters onto a newly renovated third floor with a less rigid office structure, grand gathering spaces, small lounges for impromptu meetings, and coffee bars.

Goldman Sachs employees want to cancel a Nikki Haley interview after her Confederate flag comments

  • On Glenn Beck's radio show, Haley said the Confederate flag represented "service, sacrifice, and heritage" to some residents of her state, and it was "hijacked" by the mass-murderer and white supremacist Dylann Roof.
  • Haley clarified her comments in a Washington Post editorial on Wednesday, writing that "everyone knows the flag has always been a symbol of slavery, discrimination, and hate for many people" but "others do not see the Confederate battle flag in racial terms." View Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
  • "John Waldron will ask Ambassador Haley to address her recent comments on the Confederate flag and will share the sentiments of you and others in our community." Haley told Glenn Beck, a conservative radio host, that the flag represented "service, sacrifice, and heritage" to some residents of her state.

Quantum Computers and Applications Over the Next 5 Years

  • The overhead cost for error correction improves as gate error rate declines.
  • We might get near-term quantum advantage for useful applications but this is not guaranteed.
  • Near-term algorithms should be designed with noise resilience (noisy qubits) in mind.
  • We will get good truly random number generation and will explore new quantum simulation of complex systems.
  • Lower quantum gate error rates will lower the overhead cost of quantum error correction, and also extend the reach of quantum algorithms which do not use error correction.
  • Dequantization: Practical uses of quantum linear algebra and of quantum-inspired classical algorithms are still unclear.
  • Quantum dynamics of highly entangled systems is especially hard to simulate, and is therefore an especially promising arena for quantum advantage.
  • Realistically, the goal for near-term quantum platforms should be to pave the way for bigger payoffs using future devices.

Inference in Graph Database

  • As described in W3 standards, the inference is briefly discovering new edges within a graph based on a given ontology.
  • The inference is that inferring new triples based on the data and some additional information, which may be in the form of vocabularies(ontologies) and rule sets(logic).
  • For example, let’s say we have the data that includes information Dora is Cow and Dora is Carnivore.
  • As stated, the automatic discovery of new links is done by either using vocabulary or a rule set.
  • On the Semantic Web, vocabularies or ontologies can be described in OWL, SKOS, and RDF whereas rule sets are described in RIF.
  • In my previous blog post, I described how to import an ontology into a Neo4j database by using a plugin called NSMNTX — Neo4j RDF & Semantics toolkit.

  • In the video, Newton-John seemed shocked when she realized what was in the bright pink, gift-wrapped box.
  • The jacket and skin-tight pants Newton-John wore in the 1978 film sold separately in the November 2 auction for more than double their estimate and raised $405,700 for the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research and Wellness Centre in Australia.
  • Spanx founder Sara Blakely bought the pants, which Newton-John said she had to be sewn into, according to the auction house.
  • Newton-John wore the outfit for one of the film's final songs, "You're the One That I Want," alongside John Travolta.
  • She seemed thrilled when the buyer asked if she would put it on display in her cancer center.
  • On the auction website, a note said that Newton-John wanted to see people enjoying what they'd bought.

Suspect in Boston double murder trial dragged out of court after threatening prosecutor

  • Boston (CNN) - The man accused of brutally killing two Boston doctors in their penthouse apartment in 2017 was dragged out of court on Tuesday morning after he threatened the prosecutor.

Michelle Obama defends Ellen DeGeneres after she was ridiculed for her friendship with George W. Bush: 'Our values are the same'

  • Former First Lady Michelle Obama came to Ellen DeGeneres' defense after the talk show host was lambasted for sitting next to former President George W.
  • Obama went on to recall the many times she's sat next to Bush at events and said that she finds she has a lot in common with the Republican.
  • DeGeneres had a similar defense when she was criticized for laughing with Bush at the Packers-Cowboys game in October.
  • Obama and Bush's chummy relationship has become the highlight of events that include all of the living presidents and their wives coming together.
  • Though they weren't seated next to each other at President Bush's father's funeral last year, Bush made sure to pass Obama a mint before taking his seat — a callback to a similar moment they shared at Sen. John McCain's funeral.
