SAN FRANCISCO, April 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Holberton, making software engineering education affordable and accessible globally, today announced the appointment of a new Machine Learning and Mathematics Team to build out a comprehensive program to accelerate training students in the key tenets of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the engine of the New Economy. On LinkedIn, there are currently 60,000 machine learning jobs open in the U.S. alone. Many are technology giants such as Twitter and TikTok. But increasingly traditional tech companies are investing in machine learning and recruiting machine learning engineers: even companies like McDonald's. According to LinkedIn, machine learning has created one of the biggest employment opportunities of 2021.

I scrapped all their webpages categorized under "stories". AllSides is a brilliant initiative that takes a news event and collects articles written on it by a left leaning, right leaning and center leaning media outlet. They write a summary on this event and briefly mention what is being emphasized on by each of the three outlets. An example of this can be viewed here. They publish pre-established metrics for the contemporary political bias of all major media outlets.
Beijing – China and the United States will set up a joint working group on climate change, China's official Xinhua News Agency said, in a potentially positive takeaway from what was an unusually rancorous high-level meeting. The top Chinese and U.S. diplomats, in their first meeting of Joe Biden's presidency on Thursday and Friday, publicly rebuked each other's policies at the start of what Washington called "tough and direct" talks in Alaska. But the Chinese delegation said after the meeting the two sides were "committed to enhancing communication and cooperation in the field of climate change," Xinhua said on Saturday. They would also hold talks to facilitate the activities of diplomats and consular missions, "as well as on issues related to media reporters in the spirit of reciprocity and mutual benefit," the report said. The U.S. Embassy in Beijing did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment on Sunday.
AI has played a role in breaking some of the biggest international news stories of recent years. A key example is the'Panama Papers' exposé, where machine learning helped an international team of researchers to identify loan agreements in more than 13 million records that were leaked to the press. Journalists were able to'follow the money', exposing the practices of offshore tax havens and the businesses taking advantage of tax loopholes. Machine learning also played a valuable role in the Implant Files investigation. Here, it sifted through reports sent to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and helped to uncover patient deaths potentially caused by faulty medical devices.

Welcome to the fourth edition of the AI Index Report. This year we significantly expanded the amount of data available in the report, worked with a broader set of external organizations to calibrate our data, and deepened our connections with the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI). The AI Index Report tracks, collates, distills, and visualizes data related to artificial intelligence. Its mission is to provide unbiased, rigorously vetted, and globally sourced data for policymakers, researchers, executives, journalists, and the general public to develop intuitions about the complex field of AI. The report aims to be the most credible and authoritative source for data and insights about AI in the world.
