AI Playbook by A16z is probably one of the best introductory guides to machine learning and artificial intelligence I've seen so far. http://aiplaybook.a16z.com/ #ai

In case you’ve missed the new (well, 1.5 months old) 2017 KPCB Internet Trends report, here it is:
http://www.kpcb.com/internet-trends

As always, it’s a fascinating 355-slide deck of charts and graphs that cover everything from advertising to macroeconomics.

Here are some less than obvious insights I noted. What did you find interesting?

Ads
• Ads vary significantly in how much they annoy customers: mobile pop-ups are the worst

Social Media
• Unexpected popularity of weird YouTube channels, e.g. people who record themselves unboxing stuff

Delivery / On-Demand Economy
• Trending up across the board: from Amazon to Doordash
• Amazon eating the world with Amazon Basics brand

Gaming and VR
• Gamer’s average age: 35
• More weird entertainment: the # of people watching other people play games keeps growing
• Games have higher engagement in minutes/day than Facebook (per active user)
• VR and gamification of the real world: Stanford Football, Peloton and all kinds of mobile apps
• Virtual world simulations: Improbable
• eSports growth

Media
• Continued growth of the subscription model and personalization: Spotify and Netflix dominate

Enterprise Software
• Interfaces become more humane as reflected in growing designer/developer ratios

China
• On-demand bike sharing
• AliPay + WeChat

Macro Trends
• US Deficit
• 60% of most valued companies started by 1st or 2nd generation immigrants
• 50% of most valued companies started by 1st generation immigrants

I've also posted some screenshots of noteworthy slides here: http://max2c.com/new-kpcb-report-and-my-takeaways/
