DES MOINES—The man knows how to make an entrance. During his opening swing through Iowa after declaring his candidacy for president, at his very first campaign stop inside a bustling brew pub here south of downtown, John Hickenlooper arrives to find a crowd of more than 100 voters buzzing about the latest applicant to join the strangest job-interviewing process on Earth. Bending his lanky, 6-foot, 1-inch frame to fit through the crowded doorway of the events room, all eyes on the White House hopeful, the celestial nature of his moment shatters with the pint glass meeting the concrete floor just a few feet away.Story Continued Below It spawns something of a Zapruder film debate: Some attendees say they saw Hickenlooper fumble the glass, others insist he bumped into the man who dropped it, while the candidate himself swears he had nothing to with the accident. Whatever the real explanation, it’s less compelling than what happens next. Hickenlooper instinctively kneels and … [Read more...] about John Hickenlooper Is Running for President As Himself. Uh-oh.
Aging is a natural process inflicted on all of us humans. With AI, we can get a glimpse ahead of time of what the future holds for our wrinkles, age spots, and sagging skin. A new machine learning paper shows how AI can take footage of someone and duplicate the video with the subject looking an age the researchers specify. The team behind the paper, from the University of Arkansas, Clemson University, Carnegie Mellon University, and Concordia University in Canada, claim that this is one of the first methods to use AI to tackle aging in videos. The system was trained on an expanded dataset of photos of showing individuals at different ages. Reinforcement learning, a technique that rewards an AI model for getting a task correct, comes into play by rewarding the system when the synthesized features, like wrinkles, appear similarly across consecutive video frames. Similar approaches power the “deepfake” technology that has raised alarms about the prospect of AI-powered video … [Read more...] about What old Zuckerberg looks like, according to a new AI tool for aging faces
By Bloomberg PUBLISHED: March 4, 2019 at 7:54 am | UPDATED: March 4, 2019 at 7:54 am By Ben Steverman | Bloomberg This tax season, many wealthy Americans are getting an expensive jolt. The Republican tax overhaul signed by President Donald Trump more than a year ago provides plenty of perks for the rich. But not all well-off folks are treated alike under the new law. A controversial provision that helps pay for huge corporate tax cuts punishes residents of states with higher income taxes” most of which, but not all, lean Democratic. By setting a $10,000 cap on how much Americans can deduct in state and local taxes, or SALT for short, Washington created a pricey problem for the privileged in some parts of the country. Now that the first tax season under the overhaul is here, that reality is hitting home” and the thought of moving to a low-tax state may suddenly look more attractive. But even before the law, there were rich people in blue states trying this strategy. Some … [Read more...] about How high-tax states like California and New York make it hard for the rich to leave
By David Olive Business Columnist Mon., Jan. 7, 2019 1. Gen Z asserts itself Gen Z begins entering the workforce this year. In just two years, Generation Z — people born in the late 1990s and since — will account for about one-third of the workforce. In contrast to millennials, Gen Z is motivated more by challenging workplace projects than money. Surveys show Gen Zers prefer face-to-face over digital contact. Gen Z is also among the most entrepreneurial generations yet. That makes its members a flight risk in regimented workplaces where unorthodox thinking is discouraged. Gen Z is more likely than millennials to prefer private workspaces over open-space layouts. And social-media savvy Gen Zers, accustomed to free flow of information, demand unprecedented managerial candour. Turnover will be high in workplaces that don’t provide it. 2.
