What the Presidency is Worth to Donald Trump

The New Yorker

Even if Donald Trump hadn't been running for President, 2016 would have been an important year for him in his role as the head of the Trump Organization. His hotel operation, in particular, is on course for a rapid worldwide expansion, from fourteen hotels to more than a hundred, according to a June interview with Eric Danziger, the C.E.O. of Trump Hotels. The firm added three new hotels, in Washington, D.C., Canada, and Panama, during the year and is looking at opportunities in the Dominican Republic, London, Frankfurt, Munich, Amsterdam, and Tel Aviv. In Asia, a hotel and residential complex in Bali, Indonesia, is under way, as are projects in Mumbai and Pune, India. Buildings with his name in Baku, Azerbaijan, and Istanbul have faced some problems, but the company is undaunted.

BBC News

How will they get on? Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin will have their first face-to-face meeting later at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. The US and Russian presidents say they want to repair relations damaged by disagreements over Syria and Ukraine, not to mention ongoing allegations that Russia meddled in last year's US presidential election. Their meeting is expected to last between 30 minutes and an hour. Mr Trump has urged Mr Putin to stop supporting for "hostile regimes", such as those in Syria and Iran.


Large expert-curated database for benchmarking document similarity detection in biomedical literature search

#artificialintelligence

Document recommendation systems for locating relevant literature have mostly relied on methods developed a decade ago. This is largely due to the lack of a large offline gold-standard benchmark of relevant documents that cover a variety of research fields such that newly developed literature search techniques can be compared, improved and translated into practice. To overcome this bottleneck, we have established the RElevant LIterature SearcH consortium consisting of more than 1500 scientists from 84 countries, who have collectively annotated the relevance of over 180 000 PubMed-listed articles with regard to their respective seed (input) article/s. The majority of annotations were contributed by highly experienced, original authors of the seed articles. The collected data cover 76% of all unique PubMed Medical Subject Headings descriptors. No systematic biases were observed across different experience levels, research fields or time spent on annotations.

In a two-hours-plus meeting in Germany, Trump and Putin had a "robust and lengthy" discussion about the interference, though Putin denied involvement, said Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. His Russian counterpart, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, said Trump had accepted Putin's assurances that Russia didn't meddle in the U.S. election -- a divergent description of the conversation that illustrated each country's effort to show its leader had held his ground. "I think the president is rightly focused on how do we move forward from something that may be an intractable disagreement at this point," said Tillerson, who took part in the meeting along with Lavrov. Trump's decision to raise the issue directly with Putin fulfilled ardent demands by U.S. lawmakers of both parties that the president not shy away from the issue in his highly anticipated meeting with Putin.
