Microsoft: Here's the real reason Edge crashed when Google was the default search engine


Microsoft has now offered an explanation for the bug that caused Chromium-based Edge to crash when Google was set as the default search engine – but didn't crash if Microsoft's much less popular Bing was set instead. The crashes were happening when users typed in the address bar. The conditions for the crash made it appear to some that there was a skirmish playing out between Google and Microsoft on the new Edge, which ships with Bing as the default search engine and strips out many Google features that are in Chrome. At the time, Microsoft didn't explain the cause of the crashes and why it only impacted Edge with Google as the default. However, after fixing the bug it did advise users to "revert your browser settings that you may have changed" to avoid the crashes.

In 2012, Google released the Penguin update, which caused businesses that had exact matching keywords to suffer major slides in Google rankings. Businesses started considering the use of anchor text optimization strategies to recover the lost ground.

Alibaba Cloud turns on new hyperscale data centres in China


Alibaba Cloud has added three hyperscale data centres in China and plans to build more over the next few years. The move is part of the Chinese tech giant's $28 billion investment to modernise its cloud infrastructure and support customers' digital transformation needs. Located in Hangzhou, the Jiangsu Province's Nantong, and Inner Mongolia's Ulangab, the three new sites run on Alibaba's own technologies including its Apsara Distributed OS, Hanguang 800 AI chip, and X-dragon architecture. The launch was part of its previous announcement to park another $28 billion over three years to build out its cloud infrastructure, the company said in a statement Tuesday. While coy over how the Huawei-US debacle may impact other Chinese technology vendors, Alibaba Cloud executives play up their "in Asia, for Asia" focus and investment in the region as a key competitive advantage over its US competitors, including AWS, Microsoft, and Google.

Building the Future of Data Science


We can easily see that it's increasing over time. Semantics in this context means the use of formal semantics to give meaning to the disparate and raw data that surrounds us, and also the relationship between signifiers and what they stand for in reality, their denotation. When we talk about semantics in data we normally mean a combination of ontology, linked data, graphs and knowledge-graphs, the data fabric and more. You can read about all of that in the links at the beginning of the article. The thing is that all data modeling statements (along with everything else) in ontological languages for data are incremental, by their very nature.

Why SEO & Machine Learning Are Joining Forces


The global datasphere will grow from 33 zettabytes (each equal to a trillion gigabytes) in 2018 to 175 ZB by 2025. In marketing, our role as the stewards of much of this data is growing, as well. As of last year, more data is being stored in the enterprise core than in all the world's existing endpoints, according to a report by IDC. The great challenge for marketers and SEO professionals is activating and using that data. In 2025, each connected person will have at least one data interaction every 18 seconds and nearly 30% of the world's data will need real-time processing.
