Robots in Media
Robots have been a part of human culture for a long time now. In fact, the first time someone said “robot” was in 1921! Robots are still a huge part of our lives today in all media especially in movies like Star Wars: The Last Jedi and now we even find robots in our homes thanks to smart speakers such as Google Home and assistants like Siri. Today, let’s talk about some bots we can’t see directly, but that probably effect us more than any bots we actually recognize. Let’s discuss a certain kind of internet bot: the algorithm.
A.I. on the Web
Remember during The Social Network (2010) when Mark Zuckerburg got drunk and started writing math problems on his college dorm window? What he was doing in that scene was coming up with the foundation for the algebra he would later use in his algorithm for finding friends on Facebook. اربح An algorithm is “a process or set of rules to be followed in calculations or other problem-solving operations, especially by a computer.” We encounter algorithms everyday when surfing the web and we may not even realize it. On YouTube, a bot is in-charge of deciding which videos hit the Trending page or even how likely an ad will play on that video. Google’s algorithm decides which ads are displayed on it’s homepage per search. All of these are examples of Artificial Intelligence or A.I., for short.
How Bots are Made
A.I. is what makes the modern internet work and is how we as humans can communicate effortlessly all across the globe in milliseconds. So how do the bots actually even work? Well in the simplest terms it’s a bit of a mystery as each internet company builds their bots from scratch in an effort to do a task and none of the companies are going to give away their secrets anytime soon. What we do know is how a bot is built and what that means for how they operate online.
Bots are created instantly and infinitely, each with slight changes, and are tested to perform a simple task, like recognizing a certain word or an image. All A.I. in a set are given basic instructions in code and guidelines in the form of human knowledge, then they are tested on that information. Those bots that score the highest are copied and altered for the next round of testing and the failure bots are discarded. The process repeats itself until a single bot is chosen that can most accurately and almost perfectly do that task. All the companies who built the bots are left to do is trust the process until a better bot is created. This is the algorithm for making a bot that does what you need it to do.
Stay Tuned for More!
In a future blog we’ll discuss how these algorithms and A. روليت عربي I. robots can aid your business if you wanted to build your own and will take you step-by-step in that process. Stay tuned! In the meantime, check out this informative video by CGP Grey for more on bots and A.I.

Today, The Federal Communications Commision, led by Chairman Ajit Pai, decided to remove Obama-era consumer protections and regulations on the internet. You may have heard on the news in recent months that Net Neutrality was going to be repealed. مواقع رهان Let’s discuss what exactly Net Neutrality was, what it did, and what it going away means for you and your business’ website.
What is (was) Net Neutrality?
Net Neutrality is the basic principle that prohibits internet service providers like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon from speeding up, slowing down or blocking any content, applications or websites you want to use.
In 2015, millions of activists pressured the Federal Communications Commission to adopt historic Net Neutrality rules that keep the internet free and open — allowing people to share and access information of their choosing without interference.
These rules were put in place in late 2015 as a way to prevent the internet companies from slowing down or blocking access to sites that can’t pay them a fee. As a response to consumers “cutting the cord” and getting access to content like Netflix rather than through cable, ISPs were losing billions.
So now with Net Neutrality knocking on Death’s door, all of the internet providers now have the power to charge the consumer AND the websites more money to access the necessary websites they need for work and entertainment. Those that do not comply, might be lost on the web unable to access those sites without paying massive fees and charges.
What Does This Mean For Your Business?
Let’s say you are selling a product and that product needs to be advertised online. شرح 1xbet Your options are fairly limitless right now, you can run pre-roll ads on YouTube, banner ads on Facebook or search ads on Google. Without Net Neutrality, the access that consumers have to view those websites might be severely impacted and thus lower the eyes on your ads.
If you run a website for your business, Comcast might send you a letter saying that you are going to be charged to keep your website on the “preferred” internet package, otherwise it will be blocked. You get the same letter from Verizon, AT&T etc… Eventually it becomes too much of a hassle to run your website because it costs more to operate than you get in return from online purchases and enquiries.
It’s thanks to Net Neutrality that small businesses and entrepreneurs have been able to thrive online. سباق الحصان Without Net Neutrality, internet companies will exploit their gatekeeper position and destroy the internet’s fair and level playing field.
The future of Net Neutrality now falls on the hands of Congress and the courts, make sure your voice is heard:
