Ghana to get Google’s first African AI centre


Google has announced it is to open its first African artificial intelligence research centre in Ghana later this year.

Google boss Sundar Pichai said the multi-national was “really looking forward” to opening the centre.

The centre will open later this year in Accra, the company said in an official statement.

“We’re committed to collaborating with local universities and research centers, as well as working with policy makers on the potential uses of AI in Africa,” the statement continued.

The Accra office will join similar AI research centres in places like Paris, Tel Aviv, and, of course, San Francisco.

Google pledges not to develop AI weapons

Google has pledged not to use its artificial intelligence technology in military weapons or anything that might weaken human rights in a set of principles announced on Thursday.

This commitment follows protests from staff over the US military’s research into using Google’s vision recognition systems to help guide drones.

Google insisted last week that its AI technology is not being used to help drones identify human targets, but told employees that it would no renew its contract after it expires in 2019.

Google chief executive Sundar Pichai said: “We want to be clear that while we are not developing AI for use in weapons, we will continue our work with governments and the military in many other areas.

“These collaborations are important and we’ll actively look for more ways to augment the critical work of these organizations and keep service members and civilians safe.”

Mr Pichai did not explain how Google would reach decisions about when to limit the use of AI, but added the company was not coming up with “theoretical concepts”. He said “They are concrete standards that will actively govern our research and product development and will impact our business decisions.”

The new AI principles follow weeks of protest from over 3,000 Google employees over “Project Maven”, an programme with the US Pentagon on AI for drones.

Miles Brundage, a Research Fellow at the University of Oxford, said on Twitter: “A bit vague in places, they don’t exclude offensive cyber security or anti-materiel autonomous weapons but it’s a start.”

The principles clearly state that Google will not work on AI for weapons but they also leave room for interpretation for company executives and allow Google to work for the military.

Among its objectives, the projects aim is to develop and integrate “computer-vision algorithms needed to help military and civilian analysts.”

In an open letter from Google employees to Mr. Pichai, employees expressed concern that the military could weaponize AI. “We believe that Google should not be in the business of war…Google’s unique history and its direct reach to the lives of billions of user set it apart.”

The principles also address a much broader range of concerns. Mr Pichai pledges to avoid creating systems that reinforce “societal biases on gender race or sexual orientation,” and says that privacy safeguards should be incorporated into AI.

What is Social Media Marketing? – Everything you need to know


The internet has changed the way we do things. This single entity has transformed how we consume data, replaced the way we obtain information and for businesses, given a new face to marketing. Word of mouth referrals have now been replaced by affiliate campaigns, and traditional marketing takes a second place to online marketing. Speaking of online marketing, of the many ways that can come in, social media marketing seems to be the new craze.

Like many others, I believe you must have heard about social media marketing at one time or the other. Like many people too, I know you have a lot of questions about it. How does social media drive sales and impact my business? How would purposing a sales campaign to go through social media help my business? In fact, what is social media marketing in the first place?

What is Social Media Marketing

You must have been looking for one Harvard-style definition, but you won’t get that here. Unless someone wants to intentionally make the whole concept difficult to grab for you, it is not something to fly out of your seat for.

In short, social media marketing can be defined to mean the process of marketing (either yourself, your product or your brand) through any of the popular social media outlets available. That includes all of Facebook, YouTube , Instagram, Twitter and so much more. https://jetpack.com/?aff=6647&cid=579302

Why do I Need Social Media Marketing?

You already have a good email campaign set up, you have some awesome affiliate campaigns in the bag and your advertisement game is top notch. Why would you add to that list by going the way of social media , right? Wrong!

Social media is the single largest community on the internet. Unlike websites and blogs, social media is like the ‘world’ of the internet, where there are actual people always interacting in the ‘community’.

That being said, consider the number of people that use social media. In Nigeria alone, NCC reports that about 91 million people use the internet. Compare those figures with the number of people your current marketing campaigns are reaching, and see if you would be asking the initial questions any longer.

How Social Media Marketing Can Help Your Business

Now that you have known what social media marketing is, and recognised that you need it, it’s time to see how it helps you. It’s all just talk and figures until we can figure out how this concept can work to your advantage. Some of those advantages you stand to enjoy are, but not limited to:

  • Increment in website traffic

  • Increment in the conversion rates of your website

  • Improvement of brand image and awareness

  • Enhanced communication with the target audience

  • Development of trust with the target audience who will see the human side of the brand

How to Get Started with Social Media Marketing

You have undoubtedly seen things from the point of view I’m trying to promote. Like a good businessman with an eye for progressive methods, I know you will be interested in starting out.

For now, though, this is where I will stop the narrative. Watch this space for exclusive tips on how to start a killer social marketing campaign to drive your brand to the next level. Till then, lets hear what you think, your opinions and ideas in the comments section.

Sense of humor


I have been laughing since morning when a beautiful lady stopped me at the street and told me that she is looking for GOOGLE PLAY STORE.

I asked her Google Playstore how?

She said her WhatsApp stopped working and her neighbour told her to go to Playstore and download a new one.

Anyway as a good Samaritan i am, I told her that Playstore is no longer in Nigeria but they have relocated to U.S.A Florida, then i board an aircraft for her going to U.S.A

Hope i try? 😜😜😜😜

HERE’S WHY GOOGLE JUST SNAGGED POPULAR GIF PLATFORM TENOR


Credit: Google

Tenor, a popular GIF platform with more users than Twitter, was acquired Tuesday for an undisclosed amount by Google.

Google said Tenor will remain a separate brand, but that GIFs will be featured on many of its services moving forward.

“Tenor surfaces the right GIFs in the moment so you can find the one that matches your mood,” Cathy Edwards, director of engineering at Google Images, said in a post. “Tenor will help us do this more effectively in Google Images as well as other products that use GIFs, like Gboard.”

Tenor says it sees some 12 billion searches every month, and brands such as Dunkin’ Donuts, AT&T, Sprint, Nestle, Nissan and KFC pay it $100,000 to $500,000 to appear in relevant GIF search results performed by consumers, according to a recent profile in Bloomberg Businessweek.

GIFs have become a natural extension of language, especially with younger consumers, and Google’s acquisition likely signals a new medium that requires search—and needs to be rationalized.

“Through first glance GIFs might seem frivolous, they’re actually a powerful concept,” Ben Clarke, co-founder and president of digital agency The Shipyard says. “In a very compact frame they combine images, story and text. From an advertiser’s perspective this gives them back some of their tools they may feel they’ve lost in other mediums.”

And with Google’s help, he adds, “those GIFs will become a part of the normal fabric of search and, consequently, of commerce. This will have some of the benefits of biddable media—targeting, efficacy—but at least on paper could reinject some personality into digital ads that in some ways have become stale, like text search ads.”
