Câu chuyện lớn

Nếu có một chủ đề tập thể đối với một số phản ứng dữ dội của công nghệ trong vài năm qua, thì đó là một tầm nhìn phát triển hướng tới trách nhiệm của nền tảng.

Cho đến nay, các nền tảng truyền thông xã hội đã giành được phần lớn trong cuộc thảo luận này. Điều này phần lớn là do bối cảnh chính trị và sự kìm kẹp với cả những người tự do và bảo thủ về cách trang web xử lý chính sách nội dung. Quan điểm tự do thịnh hành cho rằng các nền tảng công nghệ weren chịu trách nhiệm cho những gì được kích hoạt bởi nền tảng của họ đã không còn thịnh hành.

Điều tiếp tục làm tôi ngạc nhiên là có rất ít trách nhiệm hoặc kỳ vọng dường như vẫn dành cho các nền tảng thị trường. Bài phát biểu là một phần quan trọng của internet, nhưng mua và bán cũng vậy và nó làm tôi sốc khi một số công ty khởi nghiệp lớn có thể có được mà không cung cấp một số biện pháp bảo vệ người mua cơ bản.

Thông qua một số cuộc điều tra tuyệt vời từ Tạp chí Phố Wall, chúng tôi đã thấy Amazon đã chơi nhanh và lỏng lẻo như thế nào với những người bán bên thứ ba có được sự thống trị miễn phí trên trang web. Đã có vô số câu chuyện về những kẻ lừa đảo xâm nhập vào các trang web như Airbnb và eBay và hoạt động trong các khu vực màu xám cho phép chúng xé toạc người mua. Tuần trước, một phóng viên tại Hành vi xấu xa đã đưa ra một cú lặn sâu vào một vụ lừa đảo mà cô trở thành nạn nhân trên nền tảng Airbnb.

Tuần này, Airbnb tuyên bố rằng vào năm tới họ sẽ cam kết xác minh tất cả các danh sách của họ, một cái gì đó có vẻ hơi quá hạn. Đứng đằng sau các tài sản được đặt trên nền tảng của họ dường như là hộp cuối cùng để kiểm tra trước khi lái xe đến vòng IPO.

Thêm từ chúng tôi câu chuyện:

Airbnb tài sản sẽ sớm được xác minh tính chính xác của hình ảnh, địa chỉ, chi tiết danh sách, sự sạch sẽ, an toàn và tiện nghi nhà ở cơ bản, theo một email toàn công ty được gửi bởi người đồng sáng lập Airbnb và giám đốc điều hành Brian Chesky vào thứ Tư.

Airbnb chỉ là một startup có giá trị cao khác đang cố gắng vượt qua quá khứ ít kháng cự nhất với giá trị tương lai. Xác minh tài sản là một vấn đề khó khăn để niềng răng. Người bán chắc chắn không phải là những kẻ lừa đảo duy nhất trên Airbnb và người mua lạm dụng hệ thống mới này là một sự đảm bảo. Nhưng giữ cho cả hai bên trong một số loại cân bằng hài lòng là nhiệm vụ lộn xộn, thần thánh của Airbnb.

Airbnb đã thu được nhiều sự càu nhàu hơn hầu hết do trải nghiệm xấu của khách hàng, nhưng nó chỉ là một điềm báo cho những gì tiếp theo. Năm 2020 là một năm bầu cử tổng thống ở Mỹ có nghĩa là công chúng vẫn có thể quá bận rộn với việc Zuckerberg đang bực bội để đưa ra thị trường sự quan sát đúng đắn của họ trong thời gian tới, nhưng tiếng chuông đang vang lên cho những khu chợ này và thật khôn ngoan khi họ chú ý đến chữ viết trên tường.

Xu hướng trong tuần

Dưới đây là một vài mục tin tức lớn từ các công ty lớn, với các liên kết xanh đến tất cả các bối cảnh ngọt ngào, thêm ngọt ngào:

  • Twitter thâm nhập Ả Rập Saudi
    Một trong những những câu chuyện hoang dã tuần này là cách Ả Rập Saudi thông báo dỡ bỏ thông tin liên lạc nhạy cảm từ Twitter thông qua các nhân viên tại công ty mà họ đã trả hết. Có rất nhiều điều trong câu chuyện này và trong khi Twitter dường như đã làm hầu hết mọi thứ đúng, thì đó là một kịch bản khá ác mộng.
  • T-Mobile và Sprint bị cản trở
    Cuộc hôn nhân viễn thông của hai trong số bốn nhà mạng hàng đầu của Hoa Kỳ xóa bỏ rào cản lớn cuối cùng của nó khi FCC ban cho thỏa thuận này. Vẫn còn một số rào cản pháp lý còn lại để hai người kết thúc tốt đẹp, nhưng thỏa thuận này đã được thực hiện.
  • Adobe thực hiện tốt lời hứa
    Những lời hứa của điện toán máy tính bảng luôn có một chút tham vọng về thời gian, nhưng Photoshop cuối cùng cũng xuất hiện trên iPad và với điều đó, một mục danh sách mong muốn kéo dài một thập kỷ đã được hiện thực hóa.

GAFA Gaffes

Làm thế nào mà các công ty công nghệ hàng đầu làm hỏng việc trong tuần này? Điều này rõ ràng cần phần riêng của nó, theo thứ tự xấu:

  1. California isn hạnh phúc với Zuckerberg:
    (California cáo buộc Facebook bỏ qua trát đòi hầu tòa trong cuộc điều tra của bang Cambridge Cambridge Analytica)
  2. Hội đồng quản trị Google Google đang điều tra một số điều hành không chính đáng:
    (Bảng chữ cái Bảng chữ cái đang điều tra các vụ hành quyết về các cáo buộc quấy rối tình dục và các hành vi sai trái khác)

Thật khó để tin rằng nó đã trở lại vào thời điểm đó trong năm một lần nữa, nhưng chúng tôi vừa công bố chương trình nghị sự cho Disrupt Berlin và chúng tôi đã có một số ngôi sao tiến lên sân khấu. Tôi sẽ đến đó trong năm nay, lấy một số vé và nói rằng hey!

Official word has come down from federal authorities on one potential cause of the mystery illness affecting vape users: Vitamin E acetate, a chemical found in some vaping products that has been demonstrated to linger in the lungs long afterwards. The finding has been called a “breakthrough” but is far from the last word on the situation.

n

Sadly, the condition has already claimed the lives of at least 39 people, and more than 2,000 cases have been reported collectively from every state but Alaska. At present the only advice offered has been to stop vaping altogether.

n

In a media teleconference, the heads of the investigation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention explained the basis for pointing the finger at Vitamin E acetate. The substance was cited as a possible problem early on but only recent testing has established it as a bona fide suspect, the team explained.

n

Samples taken from the lungs of 29 victims of the condition were sent in from 10 different states, and vitamin E acetate was found in all of them. “These findings provide direct evidence of vitamin E acetate as the primary site of injury within the lungs,” said Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the CDC .

n

Although she agreed that this evidence is a “breakthrough,” she noted that it is at present merely a correlative finding u2014 more research is required to establish causation, namely the mechanism of harm, though other work has been done in that area.

n

“Previous non-CDC research suggests that when vitamin E acetate is inhaled, it may interfere with normal lung function,” she said.

n

“It’s important to note that these findings do not rule out other possible compounds or ingredients that may be causing these lung injuries,” she continued. “There may be more than one cause of the outbreak.”

n

n

Equally important are the statistics involved with the sources of the substances in question. As mentioned earlier in the investigation, a huge proportion of those suffering from this condition were using THC products, and specifically ones acquired through unregulated channels like street dealers.

n

The vitamin E acetate may have been added for the purpose of essentially cutting the product, Schuchat mentioned in response to a question on the call.

n

“That may be done for the illicit purpose, or the profit purpose, of diluting the materials, making it look nice and perhaps not having to use as much THC or other active ingredients,” she said.

n

Other potentially dangerous chemicals have been identified in vape products when heated and aerosolized, including many that even the creators might not have predicted.

n

Knowing a potential culprit doesn’t get at the heart of the problem, which would be that this chemical (perhaps among others) has already built up over months or years in the lungs of frequent vape users. Treatment is a parallel line of research, but knowing at least one substance responsible should be helpful.

n

The CDC’s previous advice still stands, the officials noted: They advise avoiding vaping altogether, as there are very few controls at present over which ingredients are allowed in vape products, and what must be declared on the packaging, or indeed whether those declarations are in any way accurate.

Every startup is a story and every startup’s success depends — on some level — on how well they can either tell that story or get that story told.

n

The best stories are the ones that create an instant brand. One that sparks a relationship or a moment of inspiration with customers and consumers alike. Those are the stories that transform industries and re-contextualize how businesses think of themselves and their competition.

n

On the Extra Crunch Stage at Disrupt Berlin three of the finest practitioners of the dark arts of branding, public relations, marketing and communications will share their tips and tricks on how to get coverage for a company and how to use that coverage to get at the strategic objectives that companies need to fulfill as they grow.

n

These alchemists of allusive include Collette Ballou, the founder of the eponymous Ballou PR; Katy Turner, the managing director of Multiple; and longtime public relations pro, Joanna Kirk.

n

Ballou began her career in European public relations in the aftermath of the dot-com collapse in the U.S. in 2001. Both an investor and an entrepreneur, Ballou has worked with startups and investment firms including 83 North, Accel Partners, Box, Criteo, Eventbrite, Facebook, GoEuro (now Omio), Lakestar, Pinterest, Stack Overflow, Stripe, TransferWise, Twilio, Waze, WhatsApp and Zendesk. She also is an investor in venture funds, including Cavalry Ventures and Connect Ventures.

n

Before founding Multiple, Turner worked in several different roles across the tech industry in the U.K. and Europe. She began her career at Orange (in a time when it was actually cool to work for a mobile operator, she says). That role led to positions at Eden Ventures, Videoplaza and as the chief marketing officer at Tech City UK. In addition to her work at Multiple, Turner also serves as a mentor for Seedcamp and Techstars and sits on the investment committee for the University of Bristol’s Enterprise Fund.

Will this be as poorly attended as SF Disrupt and essentially a series of agendaed and scripted press conferences?

Recently, I shared the responses from several London-based investors; today, we spoke to eight of New Yorku2019s top consumer VCs:

  • Rebecca Kaden, Partner at Union Square Ventures

  • David Tisch, Founding Partner at BoxGroup

Consumer health and banking startups were recurring areas of interest, and there’s a sense that apps and product brands which provide a deeper sense of community are an untapped opportunity.

n

Rebecca Kaden, Partner at Union Square Ventures

n

At USV, we are focused on opportunities that broaden access by leveraging technology to increase value and decrease cost in big buckets of consumer spend. In doing so, we are looking for ways to make products and services previously available to a select segment available to many more. In particular, we have been investing in areas of consumer health where the delivery mechanism not only makes the care more convenient but also more affordable and higher quality; products and platforms in financial services that change the traditional underlying model to drive financial health for a mass customer; and opportunities that create new access to education both for kids and lifelong learners.u00a0

n

Within each of these segments, I’ve been very interested in how new communities are forming inside products–users that come for a specific offering are forming allegiance and increasing engagement by interacting with other users. I think that is a trend we will only see accelerate.

n

David Tisch, Founding Partner at BoxGroup

n

People are bored on their phones, not of their phones. I am most excited to meet founders working on consumer apps that bring happiness and fun to a mass consumer audience, as I continue to believe we are in the early days of mobile and the app store is not dead.

n

These apps may look like a game, they may be a game, or they may be a new feed, but TikTok, Twitch, HQ, Yolo and other Snap app kit apps, Tinder and others have shown consumers want new apps, the barrier for adoption and retention isu00a0 just very high. All apps and games have a half-life, creating something with a very long one is really hard, but the demand is sitting on the phone scrolling thorough feeds, waiting for some new fun. We are excited about apps that allow people to interact with others in different ways, in new worlds, using new hardware, or new interfaces.

n

n

Anu Duggal, Founding Partner at Female Founders Fund

n

With the rise of the sober curious movement, we invested in Kin Euphorics, offering consumers a sexy option to an alcoholic drink, creating a social experience around a non-alcoholic beverage that doesnu2019t exist in the market today. With beer sales decreasing five years in a row, brands like Heineken are offering alcohol-free alternatives catering to this growing audience.

n

With the decline of religion, we have seen the rise of what we call the u201crise of the alternate community.u201d Consumers are looking for ways to connect online and offline based on specific interests. Examples of this in our portfolio include The Wonder, a membership model for familyhood, Peanut, a social network for modern motherhood, and Co-Star, an astrology app.

Recently, I shared the responses from several London-based investors; today, we spoke to eight of New Yorku2019s top consumer VCs:

  • Rebecca Kaden, Partner at Union Square Ventures

  • David Tisch, Founding Partner at BoxGroup
  • n

  • Anu Duggal, Founding Partner at Female Founders Fund

  • Craig Shapiro, Partner at Collaborative Fund

  • Jeremy Levine, Partner at Bessemer

  • Beth Ferreira, Partner at Firstmark Capital

  • Graham Brown, Partner at Lerer Hippeau Ventures

  • Eric Reiner, Partner at Sinai Ventures

Consumer health and banking startups were recurring areas of interest, and there’s a sense that apps and product brands which provide a deeper sense of community are an untapped opportunity.

n

Rebecca Kaden, Partner at Union Square Ventures

n

At USV, we are focused on opportunities that broaden access by leveraging technology to increase value and decrease cost in big buckets of consumer spend. In doing so, we are looking for ways to make products and services previously available to a select segment available to many more. In particular, we have been investing in areas of consumer health where the delivery mechanism not only makes the care more convenient but also more affordable and higher quality; products and platforms in financial services that change the traditional underlying model to drive financial health for a mass customer; and opportunities that create new access to education both for kids and lifelong learners.u00a0

n

Within each of these segments, I’ve been very interested in how new communities are forming inside products–users that come for a specific offering are forming allegiance and increasing engagement by interacting with other users. I think that is a trend we will only see accelerate.

n

David Tisch, Founding Partner at BoxGroup

n

People are bored on their phones, not of their phones. I am most excited to meet founders working on consumer apps that bring happiness and fun to a mass consumer audience, as I continue to believe we are in the early days of mobile and the app store is not dead.

n

These apps may look like a game, they may be a game, or they may be a new feed, but TikTok, Twitch, HQ, Yolo and other Snap app kit apps, Tinder and others have shown consumers want new apps, the barrier for adoption and retention isu00a0 just very high. All apps and games have a half-life, creating something with a very long one is really hard, but the demand is sitting on the phone scrolling thorough feeds, waiting for some new fun. We are excited about apps that allow people to interact with others in different ways, in new worlds, using new hardware, or new interfaces.

n

n

Anu Duggal, Founding Partner at Female Founders Fund

n

With the rise of the sober curious movement, we invested in Kin Euphorics, offering consumers a sexy option to an alcoholic drink, creating a social experience around a non-alcoholic beverage that doesnu2019t exist in the market today. With beer sales decreasing five years in a row, brands like Heineken are offering alcohol-free alternatives catering to this growing audience.

n

With the decline of religion, we have seen the rise of what we call the u201crise of the alternate community.u201d Consumers are looking for ways to connect online and offline based on specific interests. Examples of this in our portfolio include The Wonder, a membership model for familyhood, Peanut, a social network for modern motherhood, and Co-Star, an astrology app.

Gần đây được chọn lại, Indonesia Tổng thống Joko Widodou00a0announced mong muốn di chuyển thủ đô quốc gia từ Jakarta đến khu vực Đông Kalimantan, với lý do lo ngại về môi trường, điều cấp thiết nhất trong số này là việc Jakarta bị chìm theo nghĩa đen do việc khai thác nước ngầm không được kiểm soát. Widodo said he wished to separate Indonesiau2019s government from its business and economic hub in Jakarta.

n

However, what would a move from Jakarta do to Indonesiau2019s burgeoning startup economy?

n

Chuyển trung tâm hành chính chính phủ

n

Theo Widodo, các nghiên cứu đã xác định rằng trang web tốt nhất cho vốn mới được đề xuất là giữa Bắc Penajam Paser và Kutai Kertanegara, cả hai đều nằm ở Đông Kalimantan. Cơ sở của lựa chọn này là do các nghiên cứu làm nổi bật regionu2019s relative protection từ thiên tai, đặc biệt là khi so sánh với các khu vực khác. Đây chắc chắn sẽ là một lợi ích cho trung tâm chính phủ của Indonesia, đảm bảo các chức năng hành chính liên tục trong một khu vực dễ bị thiên tai. Other governments have separated administrative centers from their economic hubs with varying degrees of success, with some examples being Brazilu2019s creation of Brasu00edlia, as well as Koreau2019s projected move from Seoul to Sejong.

n

Điều thú vị nhất cần lưu ý từ các ví dụ trước đó là các thành phố phân nhánh mới hơn này không gây ngạc nhiên, tập trung vào chính phủ. In Brasu00edlia, roles tied to the government make up nearly 40% trong tất cả các công việc, trong khi ở Sejong, việc thiếu các phương tiện như giao thông công cộng và không gian trung tâm thương mại khiến nhiều người đi lại vào Sejong cho công việc của chính phủ, thay vì định cư vĩnh viễn trong khu vực. Do tính chất chưa phát triển của Đông Kalimantan, những giai thoại này khá rắc rối nếu chính phủ thực sự chuyển đến Bắc Penajam Paser hoặc Kutai Kertanegara.

n

Những sự thật này đặt ra câu hỏi về tác động kinh tế của các động thái chính phủ như vậy. Trên thực tế, người ta thậm chí có thể phản đối rằng trong khi những động thái này cho phép tăng trưởng của chính phủ, cuối cùng, họ có thể gây tổn hại cho đất nước về mặt kinh tế do sự thoái vốn giữa cả chính phủ và các trung tâm kinh tế. In this specific instance, it is most important to analyze the impact of such a move on Indonesiau2019s startup economy, as the nation is one the worldu2019s leaders in startup growth.

Indonesiau2019s startup economy

n

Indonesia đã nổi lên như một trung tâm khởi nghiệp trong khu vực Đông Nam Á trong những năm gần đây, với dân số hơn 260 triệu marking it as the worldu2019s fourth-most populous country. Additionally, Indonesiau2019s mobile-first population has enabled the full embrace of the internet era, with 95% của tất cả người dùng internet ở Indonesia được kết nối với web thông qua thiết bị di động.

n

Tương tự, tăng trưởng khởi nghiệp đã bùng nổ ở quần đảo, với một số kỳ lân có trụ sở ở Indonesia phá vỡ các nền kinh tế địa phương, khu vực và toàn cầu. Tokopedia khổng lồ được hỗ trợ bởi Softbank hiện đang trong cuộc nói chuyệnu00a0for a pre-IPO funding round, while emerging super-app Gojek controls significant portions of the ride-sharing industry in Asia, simultaneously expanding intou00a0các ngành công nghiệp riêng biệtu00a0to include digital payments, food delivery, and evenu00a0truyền phát video. Ngoài ra, cổng thông tin du lịch trực tuyến Traveloka (trong đó Expedia có cổ phần thiểu số) has recentlyu00a0đã nhập không gian dịch vụ tài chính, tăng thêm tác động của nó trong khu vực châu Á. Những ví dụ cụ thể về khởi nghiệp tăng trưởng cao cho thấy dân số khao khát đổi mới, thúc đẩy hơn nữa nền kinh tế khởi nghiệp đang phát triển.

Phong cảnh đông đúc về các chương trình dạy những người phi kỹ thuật trở thành nhà phát triển phần mềm đã là một nền tảng chứng minh cho một mô hình tài chính giáo dục mới: thỏa thuận chia sẻ thu nhập (ISAs). Với một ISA, sinh viên tránh trả tiền học phí hoặc vay các khoản vay tư nhân, thay vào đó trả phần trăm thu nhập của họ trong một thời gian sau khi tốt nghiệp sau khi họ kiếm được thu nhập tối thiểu.

n

Mô hình này liên kết các nhà cung cấp giáo dục với kết quả nghề nghiệp của sinh viên, và một công ty khởi nghiệp đang đưa ra tuyên bố trở thành người dẫn đầu trong không gian; Học viện Kenzie, a year-long program with a physical campus in Indianapolis u2014 and a student body that’s 66 percent online u2014 announced a partnership with Community Investment Management (CIM) earlier this week that provides $100 million in debt to cover the operating costs associated with students who defer payment through ISAs.

n

Chok Ooi, đồng sáng lập và CEO của Kenzie nói rằng cốt lõi trong sứ mệnh của Kenzie là mục tiêu mà các sinh viên tốt nghiệp của họ có thể ở lại trung tâm và thu hút nhiều công việc hơn để ai đó đến từ Trung Tây không còn phải chuyển đến Thung lũng Silicon hay New York để Có một sự nghiệp thành công trong lĩnh vực công nghệ. 100 triệu USD này là một trong những cam kết lớn nhất chưa được tài trợ cho ISAs và Kenzie đang sử dụng nó để tuyển dụng một nhóm sinh viên đa dạng hơn, những người có thể không đủ khả năng chi trả học phí hoặc đủ điều kiện cho các khoản vay sinh viên.

n

Tôi đã phỏng vấn Ooi để hiểu cách Kenzie khác biệt với các đối thủ cạnh tranh, cách nó đã lặp lại mô hình của nó để cải thiện khả năng duy trì và vị trí công việc và cách anh ấy hy vọng thị trường ISA sẽ phát triển trong vài năm tới. Tại đây, bản ghi lại cuộc trò chuyện của chúng tôi, được chỉnh sửa cho độ dài và rõ ràng:

n

Eric Peckham: Toàn cảnh các chương trình đào tạo nhà phát triển phần mềm rất đông. Nơi nào bạn thấy một cơ hội để làm điều gì đó khác biệt, và làm thế nào để bạn định vị Kenzie so với những người khác trên thị trường?

n

Chok Ooi: Người đồng sáng lập của tôi đến từ Galvanize, vì vậy chúng tôi đã quan sát tận mắt sự phát triển của các trại khởi động công nghệ và mã hóa. Đây thường là các chương trình ngắn hạn, ba đến năm tháng và họ có xu hướng phục vụ tốt những người có bằng đại học. Tôi muốn nói rằng họ đang phá vỡ không gian chương trình thạc sĩ. Chúng tôi đã thấy một khoảng cách lớn trong các chương trình phục vụ nhân khẩu học lớn hơn nhiều so với những người sớm phát triển hơn nhiều. Những người không bao giờ đi học đại học, hoặc học một chút đại học và bỏ học, hoặc chỉ không bao giờ có kinh nghiệm làm việc chuyên nghiệp. Một khóa đào tạo ba tháng là không đủ để đưa họ đến một điểm mà họ có thể đạt được một công việc kỹ thuật và thành công.

n

Chúng tôi đã thấy một cơ hội để đưa giáo dục công nghệ chất lượng cao đến vùng trung tâm nước Mỹ kéo dài 12 tháng. Đối với khoảng hai phần ba học sinh của chúng tôi, đây là khóa đào tạo chứng chỉ sau trung học đầu tiên của họ.

n

Chúng tôi đang cung cấp cho họ không chỉ các kỹ năng kỹ thuật, mà cả các yếu tố từ một trường đại học bốn năm truyền thống, như tư duy phê phán, giải quyết vấn đề và kỹ năng giao tiếp.

n

So với các chương trình đào tạo hoặc chương trình đào tạo khác, Kenzie có nhắm đến các kết quả công việc khác nhau cho sinh viên tốt nghiệp không?

n

Chúng tôi đã làm một cuộc khảo sát các sinh viên của chúng tôi yêu cầu họ nêu tên năm công ty công nghệ hàng đầu mà họ muốn làm việc. Không có công ty nào ở Thung lũng Silicon đưa ra danh sách này ngoài Salesforce. Indianapolis là văn phòng Salesforce lớn thứ hai bên ngoài San Francisco. Phần còn lại của các công ty mà sinh viên của chúng tôi đặt tên là các công ty như DMI và Zylo mà mọi người ở Thung lũng Silicon không được nghe về nhưng đang hoạt động rất tốt ở Trung Tây. Bạn bè của họ làm việc ở đó. Họ là một loại vải của cộng đồng. Nếu chúng ta thực sự muốn tạo cơ hội việc làm cho phần còn lại của nước Mỹ, chúng ta không thể áp dụng tư duy Thung lũng Silicon.

Vậy làm thế nào để bạn đánh giá năng khiếu kỹ thuật và tư duy phản biện trong quá trình tuyển sinh? Quá trình đó trông như thế nào, và nó đã phát triển như thế nào trong vài năm qua? Bạn đã học được gì để làm cho điều đó hiệu quả hơn?

n

Trước khi thành lập Kenzie, tôi đã thành lập một công ty cách đây 9 năm có tên là AglityIO. Mô hình cho AgilityIO tương tự như các công ty như Andela. Chúng tôi đã cố gắng giải quyết cuộc khủng hoảng tài năng ở Vùng Vịnh bằng cách tuyển dụng và đào tạo những người có tài năng thô tại Việt Nam. Ngày nay, công ty đó làm việc với Google, Uber, NerdWallet, Meetup.com và 150 công ty công nghệ khác. So Iu2019ve experience in developing processes to identify raw talent in this context.

n

Khi mọi người thực hiện các đánh giá trực tuyến, chúng tôi thu thập các điểm dữ liệu về thời gian để họ giải quyết vấn đề, điểm quyết định khác nhau của họ là gì và những điều tương tự. Sau đó, khi họ đăng ký vào Kenzie, chúng tôi tiếp tục thu thập dữ liệu điểm danh, điểm và sau đó là dữ liệu vị trí và sử dụng dữ liệu đó để xem xét các trường hợp thành công và thất bại. Chúng tôi liên tục tinh chỉnh đánh giá của chúng tôi.

Những dự án này thường tập trung vào học máy và trí tuệ nhân tạo, và kể từ đó Microsoft đang thực hiện nhiệm vụ truyền tải tất cả các sản phẩm của mình với nhiều thông minh AI hơn, nó không có gì ngạc nhiên khi nó cũng tìm cách tích hợp Nghiên cứu Microsoft Microsoft innovations into the rest of the company.

Across the board, the company is trying to find ways to become more innovative, especially around its work in AI, and it’s putting processes in place to do so. Microsoft cũng cởi mở một cách bất thường về quy trình này, và thực sự đã khiến nó tập trung vào tuần này tại Đốt cháy, một hội nghị hàng năm thường tập trung nhiều hơn vào các chủ đề quản lý CNTT kỹ thuật.

At Ignite,u00a0Microsoft will for the first time present these projects externally at a dedicated keynote. Điều đó cảm thấy tương tự như những gì Google used to do with its ATAP group at its I/O events and is obviously meant to showcase the cutting-edge innovation that happens inside of Microsoft (outside of making Excel smarter).

Để quản lý các nỗ lực đổi mới AI của mình, Microsoft đã tạo ra Microsoft AI nhóm do VP Mitra Azizirad lãnh đạo, người có nhiệm vụ thiết lập sự lãnh đạo tư tưởng trong không gian này trong và ngoài, và giúp công ty tự đổi mới nhanh hơn (Microsoft kém AI cho tốt các dự án cũng thuộc nhóm này. I sat down with Azizirad to get a better idea of what her team is doing and how she approaches getting companies to innovate around AI and bring research projects out of the lab.

“We began to put together a narrative for the company of what it really means to be in an AI-driven world and what we look at from a differentiated perspective,” Azizirad said. “What we’ve done in this area is something that has resonated and landed well. And now we’re including AI, but we’re expanding beyond it to other paradigm shifts like human-machine interaction, future of computing and digital responsibility, as more than just a set of principles and practices but an area of innovation in and of itself.”

Hiện tại, Microsoft đang làm rất tốt việc nói và suy nghĩ về chân trời một cơ hội, cũng như ba chân trời dự án vẫn còn nhiều năm nữa, cô nói. “Horizon two, we need to get better at, and that’s what we’re doing.”

Thật đáng để nhấn mạnh rằng Microsoft AI, được ra mắt khoảng hai năm trước, đánh dấu lần đầu tiên có một nhóm quản lý sản phẩm, tiếp thị và kinh doanh liên kết với Nghiên cứu của Microsoft, so the team does get a lot of insights into upcoming technologies. Just in the last couple of years, Microsoft has published more than 6,000 research papers on AI, some of which clearly have a future in the company’s products.

Securing a green card can feel overwhelming for people in Silicon Valley who were born in India and China. But with the right help and guidance from a skilled immigration attorney, the process can be simpler, smoother and more successful.

n

Limits written into existing immigration laws on both the number of green cards issued each year, as well as the number of green cards available based on country of origin, leave some waiting half a century or more for a green card, with people from India and China facing the longest wait times for employment-based green cards.

n

In this fiscal year, which ended on October 31, 226,000 family-sponsored green cards and 141,918 employment-based green cards were available. And the per-country cap, which is the maximum number of green cards available to individuals born in a particular country, was 25,754.u00a0

n

Although these U.S. laws pose an extra challenge for people born in countries with the highest demand for green cards, if you were born in India or China, there are some things you can do to mitigate this wait.

n

Differentiate yourself

n

The EB-1 green card is considered the u201cfirst preferenceu201d for those who’ll receive offers for employment-based green cards. It offers three unique and accelerated sub-paths:u00a0

n

    n

  • EB-1A green card for individuals of extraordinary abilityu00a0
  • n

  • EB-1B green card for outstanding researchers and professors
  • n

  • EB-1C green card for multinational managers and executives
  • n

n

Các EB-1A green card for extraordinary ability does not require an employer sponsor or even a job offer, which means itu2019s one of the few self-petition green cards. To demonstrate eligibility,u00a0you must be able to show you have extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics and that you and your work have received national or international acclaim.u00a0

n

Individuals who apply for the EB-1A do not need to obtain labor certification (as required of employers). That means the process is simpler and can be much faster than typical employment-based green cards. Also, an individual applicant may have more flexibility to change jobs than if an employer applied on their behalf.

n

Các EB-1B green card for outstanding researchers and professors requires an employer to sponsor you. Candidates for the EB-1B green card must demonstrate great achievements in their academic field.u00a0

n

And finally, the EB-1C green card for multinational managers and executives enables an employer to bring an executive or manager who has been working abroad over to the U.S. to live and work. The EB-1C candidate must have worked outside the U.S. for the employer for at least one year.

n

This Cato Institute analysis estimates individuals born in China and India face waiting eight and nine years, respectively, for an EB-1 green card.u00a0Despite the small and growing backlog for EB-1 green cards for individuals born in China and India, it still remains one of the quicker options.
n

n

Invest in a project that creates jobs

Hey everyone. Thank you for welcoming me into you inbox yet again.

n

I got some awesome responses to the #DeleteLinkedIn newsletter last week, a few dozen emails (some of them angry) and plenty of tweets. Looking forward to chatting with some of you soon. On that note, Iu2019m currently in China for a TechCrunch event that weu2019re having in Shenzhen and will be taking some time offline to travel a bit so I wonu2019t be arriving in your inboxes the next two weeks. Week in Review will be back in your inboxes the weekend after Thanksgiving so youu2019ll have to savor this newsletter until then.

n

If you’re reading this on the TechCrunch site, you can get this in your inbox đây, and follow my tweets đây.

The big story

n

If there’s been a collective theme to some of the tech backlash of the past couple years, it’s been an evolving vision towards platform responsibility.

n

Social media platforms have earned the lion’s share of this discussion to date. This has largely been due to the political landscape and gripes with both liberals and conservatives for how the site handles content policing. The prevailing libertarian view that tech platforms weren’t responsible for what was enabled by their platforms has fallen out of vogue.

n

What continues to surprise me is how little accountability or expectations there still seems to be for marketplace platforms. Speech is a crucial part of the internet, but so is buying and selling and it shocks me how big some startups have been able to get without delivering some basic buyer protections.

Through some great investigations from the Wall Street Journal, we’ve seen how fast and loose Amazon has been playing with third-party sellers getting free reign on the site. There have been countless stories of scammers infiltrating sites like Airbnb and eBay and operating in grey areas that allow them to rip off buyers. Last week, a reporter at Vice delivered a scathing deep dive into a scam she fell victim to on Airbnb’s platform.

n

This week, Airbnb announced that by next year they are pledging to verify all of their listings, something that seems more than a little overdue. Standing behind the properties being booked on their platform was seemingly the last box to check before driving to the IPO hoop.

n

More from our story:

n

Airbnbu00a0u00a0properties will soon be verified for accuracy of photos, addresses, listing details, cleanliness, safety and basic home amenities, according to au00a0company-wide emailu00a0sent by Airbnb co-founder and chief executive officer Brian Chesky on Wednesday.

n

Airbnb is just another highly valued startup that has been trying to take the past of least resistance to outsized future value. Verifying properties is a difficult issue to brace. Sellers are certainly not the only scammers on Airbnb, and buyers abusing this new system is a guarantee. But keeping both sides in some sort of satisfaction equilibrium is Airbnb’s messy, god-given task.

n

Airbnb has garnered more grumblings than most due to bad customer experiences, but it’s just a harbinger of what comes next. 2020 being a presidential election year in the U.S. means that the public might still be too busy with lambasting Zuckerberg to give marketplaces their due watchful eye in the near term, but the bell is tolling for these marketplaces and it’d be wise for them to pay attention to the writing on the wall.

Trends of the week

n

Here are a few big news items from big companies, with green links to all the sweet, sweet added context:

n

    n

  • Twitter’s Saudi Arabian infiltration
    nOne of the wilder stories this week was how Saudi Arabia reportedly lifted sensitive contact info from Twitter via employees at the company that they paid off. There’s a lot in this saga and while Twitter seems to have done most things right, it is a pretty nightmarish scenario.
  • n

  • T-Mobile and Sprint get hitched
    n
    The telecom marriage of two of the United States top four carriers cleared its last major hurdle as the FCC gave the deal its blessing. There’s still some residual legal hurdles for the two to wrap up in good faith, but this deal is done.
  • n

  • Adobe makes good on a promise
    nThe promises of tablet computing have always been a little ambitious in terms of timing, but Photoshop is finally arriving on the iPad and with that, one decade-long wish list item has been realized.
  • n

GAFA Gaffes

n

How did the top tech companies screw up this week? This clearly needs its own section, in order of badness:

n

    n

  1. California isn’t happy with Zuckerberg:
    n
    (California accuses Facebook of ignoring subpoenas in stateu2019s Cambridge Analytica investigation)
  2. n

  3. Google’s board is investigating some executive impropriety:
    n
    (Alphabetu2019s board is investigating execs over claims of sexual harassment and other misconduct)
  4. n

n

Disrupt Berlin

n

DISRUPT SF 530X350 V2 berlin

n

It’s hard to believe it’s already that time of the year again, but we just announced the agenda for Disrupt Berlin and we’ve got some all-stars making their way to the stage. I’ll be there this year, get some tickets and come say hey!
