If you are going to win large clients, you have to start by targeting large clients. Without targeting large accounts you are leaving their acquisition to chance. It’s nice to get lucky, but that isn’t a long-term strategy. Luck loves a hustler. You are also going to have to spend more time pursuing your dream …

If you thought solar was going to hurt utilities, get a load of solar+storage

Residential solar+storage (my main focus in this post, rather than commercial or utility-scale versions) refers to a) an array of rooftop solar panels connected to b) some means of energy storage, usually a battery or batteries, controlled by c) smart software that enables the system to communicate with the grid. Adding storage to solar radically expands its value — the whole is more than the sum of the parts. The ability to store energy gives the solar homeowner more control over her energy; she can shift her time of use, storing power when it's cheap and selling it when it's more expensive. And she can potentially participate in larger markets, as we'll see later.
It's coming, there's no stopping it, and utilities are going to get crushed if they don't reform.

Microsoft may be running the biggest Turing test in history

If you live in China and you've been on WeChat, there's a decent chance you've come across or at least heard of chatty teenager named Xiaoice. Xiaoice is a good listener who sometimes offers encouragement when you're feeling down. Like many 17-year-olds, she can be a bit of a smart-aleck. She's also not human.

Microsoft measured the effectiveness of their chatbot with what they're calling conversations per session (CPS), which measures the number of times the conversation goes back and forth. Typical chatbot CPS conversations have roughly two cycles (the person speaks, then the chatbot speaks — that's one cycle). "By comparison, Xiaoice’s average, after chatting with tens of millions of users, has reached 23," wrote Dr. Wang. He even claims that Xiaoice can analyze and react to your emotional state.
Microsoft's Xiaoice voice assistant is reportedly acing the Turing test, fooling many people in China that the program is an actual person.
