○ Nordjyske lancerer chatbot

I opsamlingen fra uge 49, 2016 kunne du læse om DR Nyheders chatbot. Nu er Nordjyske hoppet med på vognen:

Som det første større, private mediehus i Danmark lancerer Nordjyske en nyheds-chatbot. Målet er at få brugere, særligt de yngre, ind på Nordjyskes egen platform.

○ Bots skuffede i 2016

Der er blevet talt meget om bots, og forventningerne har været store. Men indtil videre er der ikke sket det helt store.

Despite lots of PR, neither Facebook, Amazon or Google-developed bot platforms this year made it easy for developers to work with. Narrowly focused services can thrive in the near-term but mass-market bots have a way to go.

○ Her er ITU-virksomheden, Facebook købte

Du har måske læst eller hørt om, at Facebook har købt danske The Eye Tribe, der arbejder med eyetracking-teknologi. Computerworld har en artikel, hvor du kan læse mere om virksomheden, der har rødder på ITU.

○ Borgerne skal uddannes til det digitale demokrati

”[Facebook] er en kommerciel annonceplatform, der udelukkende er designet til, at vi skal bruge mest mulig tid, så vi eksponeres for flest mulig reklamer. Seriøst indhold ofres til fordel for indhold, som udgør en økonomisk fordel for Facebook,” siger Alex Krasodomski-Jones og tilføjer: ”Man ville jo aldrig havde udformet Facebook som nu, med hemmelige algoritmer, der favoriserer populistisk indhold, hvis målet var et reelt digitalt demokrati.”

Derfor er vi nødt til at gribe det helt anderledes an, hvis vi insisterer på at værne om vores grundlæggende demokratiske værdier, mener han. Først og fremmest er der brug for langt bedre skoling af ikke mindst de unge, så de bliver i stand til at navigere som ”digitale borgere”.

○ Zuckerberg: Facebook er en slags medievirksomhed

“Facebook is a new kind of platform. It’s not a traditional technology company,” he said today, mirroring his exact words from last week when Facebook launched product updates and partnerships with outside fact-checkers to fight fake news. But then he went a step further, now saying “It’s not a traditional media company. You know, we build technology and we feel responsible for how it’s used.”

That implies Zuckerberg does in fact see Facebook as some kind of media company, just not like the old ones that created the content themselves.

○ Apple vil publicere AI-research

Google, Facebook, Microsoft and the rest of the techstablishment have been steadily growing their machine learning research groups. With hundreds of publications each, these companies’ academic pursuits have been well documented, but Apple has been stubborn — keeping its magic all to itself.

Things started to change earlier this month when Apple’s Director of AI Research, Russ Salakhutdinov, announced that the company would soon begin publishing research. The team’s first attempt is both timely and pragmatic.

○ Knækker Snapchat over i to apps?

I predict that a key item on the company’s checklist next year will be spinning off Discover into a separate app. It’s an idea that hasn’t surfaced publicly but has been discussed privately at senior levels of the company in the past. There’s also precedent for apps to unbundle some features into new apps: Facebook did it with Messenger and Foursquare did it with Swarm.

○ Spådom: Internet of Things i 2017

What will happen with this technology next year? In the next 10 years? To date, most of the buzz around IoT has concentrated on technology in the home. But will other spaces start to see the impact of IoT, too? How much is the phenomenon predicted to grow?

○ Skal Weekendavisen overhovedet være digital?

Det spørgsmål stiller jeg i en artikel på min blog, Medieblogger:

Når/hvis Weekendavisen digitaliseres, skal man være opmærksom på, at man bevæger sig ind i det territorium. Så har man ikke længere “kvalitetstid” med brugeren, og det bliver en kamp for fastholdelse og loyalitet. Det kan hurtigt blive et barskt sted at være.

○ Medium fyrer og skifter fokus væk fra annoncer

Udgivelsesplatformen Medium fyrer en tredjedel af de ansatte (50 stk.) og ændrer på forretningsmodellen, hvor man tidligere har brugt annoncer.

Grundlægger Ev Williams (der også var med til at starte Twitter) skriver:

We had started scaling up the teams to sell and support products that were, at best, incremental improvements on the ad-driven publishing model, not the transformative model we were aiming for.

[…]

We decided we needed to take a different — and bolder — approach to this problem. We believe people who write and share ideas should be rewarded on their ability to enlighten and inform, not simply their ability to attract a few seconds of attention.

Nieman Lab har en artikel om nyheden:

But those leaving also include Saul Carlin, the company’s head of publisher development, whose job was to bring on board buzzy publishers like The Ringer and The Awl as well as smaller publishers and individuals.

It isn’t clear what happens to those publishers now. It appears that Medium is expecting them to keep up some form of business as usual.

TechCrunch har også skrevet om det: Medium lays off 50 employees, shuts down New York and D.C. offices

…og det har MediaWatch også .

○ Boganmeldelse: Danske Banks kundefokus

‘Der er kun én chef – kunden!’ hedder en ny bog om Danske Banks vej ud af krisen. Som titlen afslører handler det om Danske Banks fokus på kunderne i stedet for forretningen, altså et skift fra at tænke indefra og ud til at tænke udefra og ind.

○ Management-idéerne der betød mest i 2016

Many of the ideas that stood out fall roughly into two categories:  1. streams of management research that gathered momentum or brought new data to an old debate and 2. management thinking applied outside the sphere of what we ordinarily think of as management to help make sense of global risks, political choices, and economic, social, and technological shifts.

○ Styrker ved mobile browsere

Apple taught us, “There’s an app for that.” And we believed it. Why wouldn’t we? But time has passed since 2009. Our mobile users have gotten more mature and are starting to weigh having space for new photos against installing your big fat e-commerce app. Meanwhile, mobile browsers have also improved. New APIs are being supported, and they will bring native app-like functionality to the mobile browser.

○ Gode og dårlige user interfaces fra 2016

Remember 2016? It was the year that our smartphones became boring, and smartwatches proved to be less a revolution than an alternative to any other watch. But things also got weird this year: VR finally had its moment in the limelight—Oculus Rift and HTC Vive both hit after years of hype—while Pokemon Go and Snapchat normalized augmented reality, seemingly overnight.

○ JS-libraries: React vs. Vue

The scope of both React and Vue is undeniably similar: both are lightweight component-based libraries for building user interfaces that focus on the view layer only. Both can be used in a simple project, or be scaled up to a sophisticated app using cutting edge tooling. […] Is one clearly superior over the other?

○ Undgå Chrome-bias; 4 Firefox-tips

Googles Chrome-browser har rigtig mange brugere, og mange udviklere bruger også selv browseren. Det kan skabe en ‘bias’, hvor websites kun er bygget til (og måske testet i) Chrome. Robin Rendle fra CSS-Tricks satte sig for at udfordre sin Chrome-kærlighed ved at prøve Firefox, og han deler nogle udvikler-tips til Firefox.
