When Pinterest users started searching for vaccines, CEO Ben Silbermann pulled all medical information from the platform

  • But the visual discovery platform has established a quietly radical approach to search: deliberately engineering results to avoid harm, and holding itself accountable for unintended consequences.
  • The platform faced its first test when it noticed people had begun searching Pinterest for medical information, specifically about vaccines.
  • The reemergence of previously eradicated diseases like measles has been linked, at least in part, to disinformation on social platforms shared by people who believe unfounded claims that vaccines can be harmful.
  • Under the guidance of clinical psychologists, Pinterest designed a product called “Compassionate Search.” The goal is to serve results that will aid rather than harm users, all based on expert advice from medical professionals.
  • Pinterest is still dwarfed by the likes of Instagram, Google, and Amazon, whose businesses focus on the intersection of search and commerce.

LIVE: Here come Apple's Q1 2020 earnings - Business Insider

  • Apple's business made a roaring comeback in the final three months of 2019, as sales of its newest iPhones models and wearable gadgets like the AirPods resulted in a 9% increase in revenue that was billions above Wall Street's expectations.
  • Apple's iPhone revenue was also up year-over-year for the first time since its smartphone business began to dip in the same quarter one year ago.
  • The earnings results are further evidence that Apple's newest iPhones ended up selling better than expected, as analysts had largely estimated that this year's iPhone would be the model to bring Apple's smartphone business back to growth.
  • It's worth noting, however, that Apple had a notably weak quarter in its fiscal first quarter of 2019, as iPhone sales had cratered by 15% in the same period one year ago.

Smartphone sales expected to get a slight bump in 2020

  • Last year saw global smartphone sales decline for the first time since analysts started tracking such things.
  • Following on last week’s global device forecast, the firm is drilling down on smartphone figures with some slightly rosier results.
  • According to the new numbers from the firm, global smartphone rates are expected to reverse course slightly for 2020, with a predicted 3% bump in worldwide sales.
  • It’s a minor success, but after a few years of stagnation and then decline, a small victory is a victory no less.
  • Apple, of course, is expected to get into the game at the end of the year, with the next iPhone, while a new batch of Qualcomm chips are helping to make cheaper 5G devices a reality.
  • Without a radical shift in form factor or functionality, it’s hard to imagine smartphone sales seeing a substantial course correction in the coming years.

How to: make a Chrome extension

  • We will create an extension to highlight (with a border) Google ads on the search results page (so they are identifiable by anyone!).
  • Let's start by creating a folder that will hold our extension's brain.
  • Now that you have the folder, cd into it and create a manifest.json file (every chrome extension should have this file since this is the presentation card for them).
  • Let's create them and open it into your editor of choice.
  • We'll add more information here as we write our extension.
  • As you may notice, we are including a script called action.js, but we haven't done it yet!
  • So let's create it!
  • Create a file called action.js.
  • Now, you can share this extension with others so they don't confuse ads with organic results anymore!
  • For example, you can change the styles variable to add a background color like the ones ads had on the past.

Google's 25 million Datasets - A Perfect Gift for Aspiring Data Scientists

  • Data Science and Machine Learning are two of the most fascinating fields of this century.
  • Google publicly released its new dataset search tool on the 23rd of January 2020.
  • The search tool is designed such that it has filters to limit results based on their license (free or paid), format (CSV, images, etc), and update time.
  • Whether be it Machine Learning or Data Science, you're fed with enough datasets for whatever purpose you need it for.
  • Your search for the right dataset while researching Machine Learning or Data Science projects is now made soothing.
  • Because to build accurate models, you need a huge amount of data and these datasets are released keeping the same in mind.
  • Generally, we need these for either research purposes or for working on some projects.
  • Here are some of the top Machine Learning and Data Science projects that are handpicked and designed by industry experts.
