Election Scorecard to Help Electoral Victory Using Big Data And Social Media

The Social media and Big Data have helped in numerous ways to ease a problem which without it, can be a hectic task. Sure Social media is already on the line helping the political candidates and now the bar is increased with the use of big data using which we can get to know the total money raised by each candidate with aggregated user interaction from social media such as Facebook and YouTube. The Election Scorecare by Enga.ge is a big data tool which provides automated influence by collecting the information from social media along with the money raised by each candidate. David Almacy, a partner with Enga.ge stated that "Fundraising—money—is a key performance indicator for electoral success. Money pays for necessary things like staff, advertising, and consultants." There is no better medium than social media in order to know the public opinion and Almacy explained that he had already built a prototype of the Scorecard during 2012 elections. His goal is to know how people will choose the political candidates with the help of social media by knowing the share patterns among the social media. The Scorecard is said to be more sophisticated than the initial version that Almacy had developed. The current version is mobile friendly which will be acquiring real time data, several times a day. Another important feature is said to be that people can not only view presidential candidates, but they can also choose to view other local politicians and celebrities.

Google Using DeepMind's AI to Cut its Giant Electricity Bill

DeepMind helps Google cutting the costs of Data Centers It’s been around 2 years since Google has spent millions of dollars on a small artificial intelligence startup DeepMind. The expenditure is generating some results as the unit has shown some promising results by giving tough time to Atari video games. Facebook also lost the war with Google, as it has beaten the impossible board game. Recently, DeepMind has also started applying its advanced AI to Google’s data centers. This will result in reducing the energy consumption for its servers and computers. Google is aimed at reducing the cost for one of the company’s top expenses because maintaining the core Google is still very expensive. Since 2 years Google is using machine learning for its data centers to curb extra expenditure. Google a month back has started using more specialized AI tools from DeepMind for their cooling problems in server farms. Google confirmed that there has been a drop of 40 percent in the energy needed for cooling. Recently, Google has made an investment in renewable energy for its data centers. DeepMind is helping Google in saving energy for its operations. This is big news for Google’s business because it will have a very good impact on its cloud storage.

Microsoft And Boeing Teams Up for Digital Aviation Using Big Data And AI

Microsoft’s intelligent assistant Cortana will be assisting the Boeing airline operators from the data which is stored in the cloud. Microsoft and Boeing have announced a partnership which is supposed to move the Boeing’s digital aviation offerings to Azure, making the servers smarter as stated by Microsoft. Microsoft representative stated that “Centralizing Boeing’s digital aviation applications on Azure will allow Boeing to analyze a large set of data provided from multiple sources.” The Cortana is expected to help the airline operators in managing inventory, schedule pilots and crews along with scheduling maintenance from the data that has been collected from the cloud. The idea of this collaboration is more than just making Cortana flying planes, it is designed in such a way so as to use data analysis on the information that has been gathered on daily basis with the goal to eliminate time and effort wasted on frequently used processes. This centralized ‘smart scheduler’ will be knowing which plane needs maintenance along with staff availability and cargo load-outs, which can be more efficient than the human-run systems. But along with advantages comes disadvantages too, in this case, the centralized system, which people believe can be hacked. Microsoft and Boeing are well aware of this and responded that security is a key consideration in their well designed systems.
