Machine learning methods in SEO (Search Engine Optimization) constitute the current, most effective system for optimizing websites and improving their SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages) in Google and other search engines. Apparently, RankBrain is the latest algorithm that is part of Google’s Hummingbird.1 Hummingbird has included other platform updates such as Panda, Penguin and Pigeon. #rankbrain #tensorflow #ai #TensorFlowOnSpark +Bill Slawski +Richard Wallis +Ian Davis +Mirek Sopek +Caliber Media Group

"At the meeting, the OMG Board of Directors voted to adopt the FIBO® Business Entities 1.1 standard. This standard, one of the rapidly-expanding family of Financial Industry Business Ontology® (FIBO) standards, defines financial industry terms, definitions and synonyms for legal and business entities that may open an account, take out a loan, or participate in any public or private offering of securities or other business activities that require financial services. Like all FIBO standards, the FIBO Business Entities standard is based on semantic web principles and widely-adopted OMG modeling standards such as UML®, and promotes unambiguous shared meaning that helps the financial industry comply with new and future regulatory policies on how to manage risk." #FIBO

"EFF has run a full-page ad in this month's Wired, addressed to the technology industry, under the banner "Your threat model just changed," warning them that the incoming administration has vowed to spy on and deport millions of their fellow Americans on the basis of religion and race, and that they are in grave risk of having their services conscripted to help with this effort. (Trump is also an avowed opponent of net neutrality)." +Electronic Frontier Foundation +Ian Davis +WIRED

"When news came Yahoo was hacked in 2014, Verizon indicated that the cost of the sale may be renegotiated, and it seems likely the newly revealed hack could make that possible renegotiation an even bigger issue. Hermant Bhargava, a professor in technology management at the University of California, Davis who has been following the deal, said the purchase may be dead in the water."
