Sentient AI and the Benefits of the Ecommerce Recommendation Engine
January 14, 2018
Information is everywhere. It’s in the food we eat, the route we take to work, how we spend our free-time. Businesses use this seemingly innocuous information to inform decisions about the customers they target and how they target them. For example, the publications you read, and whether you read them in print, on-line or on your smartphone.
Historically, whenever a company crafted some sort of digital marketing or e-commerce campaign, they would compile reams upon reams of information about their target audience. This would help guide what they said, how they said it and where it should appear to make a maximum impact on you, the customer. And once a business had you in the door, or on their website, they could make subtle suggestions based on their knowledge of you.
With the rapid growth in data, companies have compiled profiles about virtually every facet of our lives. But now, instead of companies relying on the lowly marketing intern to pore through said data, they have a new tool at their disposal: artificial intelligence, or AI for short.
Far from being science fiction, AI enables companies to take all of that data, process it using a variety of algorithms, and come out with a list of suggestions or likely outcomes. So rather than running a raft of A/B tests to see which ad campaign will be the most successful, they can use an AI solution that helps to expedite their decision.

One of the pioneers in this field is Sentient AI, a company whose founders helped develop the technology for Siri, Apple’s personal digital assistant. With Sentient AI they really set out to develop AI tools that companies could use for a particular business need, tools like the E-commerce Recommendation Engine.
Recommendation engines are behind a website’s ability to recommend similar, or related products, such as you see whenever you go to Amazon. There are many such recommendation engines, but there are two capabilities that set the E-commerce Recommendation Engine apart: its ability to update by pulling digital images from a store’s product catalog, and it’s ability to treat each customer as an individual, rather than part of a larger group, or cohort of shoppers.
The result is a more informed and personalized shopping experience. They have different technologies for the e-commerce field, and online shops can benefit significantly from including the Sentient AI in their platforms.
When you’re breezing through your online shopping any day, you can thank AI, and perhaps the E-commerce Recommendation Engine.
Daniel Taub Visits Bradford To Work On Building A Stronger Bond Between Israelis and The British People
January 4, 2018
Recently, Daniel Taub, The ambassador to Britain from Israel, took a trip to Bradford where inflammatory comments from George Galloway, Bradford West’s MP, had shaken up the community. According to Taub, he was there on invitation, and he took the opportunity to meet with members within the community as well as religious leaders. What Galloway had said was that Bradford should be an “Israel Free Zone,” without any services or anything, for that matter, related to Israel.
When Daniel Taub visited the city, he got a much different impression than Gallaway had made the city out to seem. Instead of discovering large groups of people who felt as Gallaway did, what he found was a community where people from differing backgrounds and religions lived together in peace. After posting his comments online, an investigation into Galloway by the British police began. Daniel Taub commented that it would be productive for Galloway to not try to drag Israel, and the entire region, back into the past but to, instead, focus on moving it into the future.
The unfortunate truth, is that Galloway has an anti-Semitic history and has been known to have racist tendencies towards Israelis. He once said that he would not debate an opponent of his simply because they were from Israel. He also demonstrated odd behavior when he said that he never made strange accusations that it was Israel who was creating trouble in the Ukraine and that it was also them who had gifted Al-Qaeda with chemical weapons. The problem with his denial was that had been recorded. Learn more: http://rabbisacks.org/rabbi-sacks-conversation-daniel-taub/
Daniel Taub made it clear, on his arrival, that he was in Bradford because the people of the city had invited him. He believes that there are plenty of possibilities for discussion in the city and that many have made it clear they don’t agree with Galloway. He made reference to the fact that Bradford and Israel have long been cooperating with one another and that Galloway does not represent the city.
Daniel Taub is the departing Ambassador of Israel to the court of St. James, and he has a long history of bringing the people of Britain and Israel together. While he was born in the United Kingdom, Mr. Taub is Jewish and calls Israel his homeland. A lot of his work has been to draw people closer together, and he has been especially effective at building technology and trade ties between then two nations.
A Peaceful, meaningful World with Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin
December 18, 2017
The fight for human, civil and immigrants’ rights have been there since time immemorial. Most individuals are rigid and are not willing to resolve their ways and make a difference in the world.
The mistreatment and exploitation of the poor is currently a global concern. Many philanthropic groups have been founded to neutralize the situation. Some of these groups include;
The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are the founders of this group. The duo is a journalist. They are the co-founders of the Phoenix New Times.
Lacey and Larkin have been known for fighting for their first amendment rights. The two went ahead and did the unthinkable. They published the evil deeds of the Sheriff as their newspapers headlines. This was a confident act because the Sheriff was a respected man in the society whose path no one would try to cross.
When Sheriff Joe heard what they had done, he arrested them and took them to an unfamiliar location. Due to public demonstrations, they were released. Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikipedia
They took the Sheriff to court. They were confirmed innocent and got $3.75 million as compensation for the unlawful arrest. They used this money to start the Frontera Fund.
The Advocates for Human Rights
The Advocates for Human Rights has helped fight many human rights battles. They fight at all levels; local, regional and international levels. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/jim-larkin/
The group has been in the field for more than 30 years now. It has supporters and well-wishers who have contributed largely to their success. The groups aim to create a uniform perspective of human rights internationally and see that it is followed.
The group also researches on people who are violating human rights and ensure they are punished. Besides this, the group helps immigrants get shelter.
The Advocates for Human Rights has helped improve the lives of women, children and immigrants families.
The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA)
The CHIRLA Group is based in California. Its goal is to improve the lives of Immigrants and their families.
The group operates on the leverage of the crowd. They aim at changing the opinion of the public and using that power to introduce good policies and get rid of bad policies.
The group was founded as a result of the 1986 act. The act illegalized the employment of
Whoever Bradesco’s Incoming President Will BE, He/She Will Find A Competent Ally in Luiz Carlos Trabuco
November 10, 2017
About a week ago when former Bradesco chairman Lazaro Brandao announced his decision to vacate the position of chairman of the board, the Brazilian bank saw no one more deserving for the position than Luiz Carlos Trabuco.
Trabuco has been the president of the giant bank for the last seven years and the vice chairman of the board for the last three years. Given his immense contribution to the bank over the course of the last 48 years, no one is more deserving to take over the reins from Lazaro Brandao. However, as a consequence of him being named the chairman of the board, a new president will have to be picked to lead the Bradesco group.
The incoming president will become only the fifth ever president in its over seven-decade history. The reason Bradesco has had so few leaders despite its relatively long existence, is the fact that all of its presidents thus far have been very effective leaders thus negating the need for leadership changes midway into their tenures. The bank will be looking to accomplish the same with its next president and is consequently planning to pick him/her from among its current senior executives. Additionally, the mandate of the president will be slightly amended as he/she will no longer have a seat on the bank’s board.
However, Bradesco’s board is not in any hurry to name a new president. The bank’s bylaws expressly stipulate the time during which the board should make succession decisions relating to the presidency. That duration puts the expected time of appointment for the next president at March 2018. Until then, the bank will remain in the capable hands of Luiz Carlos Trabuco, who will serve as both president and chairman of the bank.
The immediate responsibility of Luiz Carlos Trabuco as the incoming chairman will be to on the expansion work that he and Lazaro Brandao had commenced with the aim of making Bradesco the largest private back in the country again. For a large portion of its existence, Bradesco was the largest private bank in the country. However, in 2008, the bank lost the position to a new rival, Itau Unibanco. While losing the dominant market position greatly wounded the bank’s pride, Luiz Carlos Trabuco has for the last four years been working towards reclaiming the top position and has, in fact, gained significant ground on the larger competitors.
The 2015 acquisition of HSBC Brazil by Bradesco for over 5 billion dollars will forever remain the shrewdest piece of business done by Luiz Carlos Trabuco during his tenure. While there is no escaping the fact that the price tag associated with the acquisition was huge, even for Bradesco, the deal has, in turn, resulted in great returns for Bradesco. The bank has grown its customer-base to well over 30 million, increased is asset-base to close to $400 billion and expanded its branch network to approximately $5,500 branches. Consequently, Bradesco is now closer to Itau Unibanco than it has ever been since 2008. It is a realistic possibility that through cohesive work, Luiz Carlos Trabuco and the incoming president could help Bradesco retake the dominant position in the next few years.
The new president will also get a lot of assistance in the position as Luiz Carlos Trabuco has long had a passion for mentoring others. As soon as he was named Bradesco’s president in 2009, he set up a corporate university to facilitate the training of the bank’s executives in leadership skills. It is a tradition that has practiced by of the bank’s previous four presidents.

How Kate Hudson Made Fabletics Famous
October 9, 2017
It is widely known in the world of fashion and startups that Fabletics is one of a kind. It was launched in 2013, just a few years ago, but it has already grown by over two hundred percent to a business that is worth two hundred and fifty million dollars and has over one million active paying subscribers. What is their secret?
According to Shawn Gold, who is the director of marketing for the parent company of Fabletics, this secret is the power of the crowd. This refers to online reviews that users leave about products on independent review sites, as well as testimonials on a product website.
Why are user reviews so important? Of course, the results Fabletics has achieved should be enough to convince you. However, if they are not, then here are some interesting facts. According to research done by Bright Local, eighty four percent of people trust online reviews as much as they would trust a recommendation made by a family member or by a friend. People are searching for reviews more, too. According to Bright Local, fifty percent of people say that they perform research online about products regularly. In fact, you have probably seen people doing research about products online when they are looking for stuff in a store. The truth is that only thirty three percent of the time, they are looking for better prices elsewhere. Sixty five percent of the time, they are looking at user reviews and trying to find out more about the product!
Reviews are good for many reasons. First of all, they drive revenue. A study by Yelp found that just a one half star increase in a rating lead to restaurants selling out nineteen percent more times! A one star increase in a rating can lead to a five to nine percent increase in revenue.
Reviews can also lead to repeat customers. This is one way Fabletics has over one million active paying members. The truth is that if there are plenty of positive reviews about your company, customers are more likely to trust you and buy from you again. That is why Fabletics cares so much about online reviews, and it is why they answer and respond to these reviews. They have over thirty thousand reviews on Trustpilot alone! Another astonishing fact is that eighty five percent of Fabletics’ revenue comes from these repeat customers. Not only that, but seventeen percent of their new customers are people who were referred by repeat customers.
Kate Hudson, the star of the film Almost Famous, is a great supporter of Fabletics. She has not only endorsed them, but she plays an active role in mapping out their marketing strategy. She is the one who is always coming up with their innovative ideas. She has helped Fabletics earn a top rating with the BBB, and she has helped them improve customer support. You should go check out Fabletics’ lifestyle quiz so that you can find out which Fabletics clothing are the best for you.

How Dr. Cameron Clokie and Other Health Experts Are Revolutionizing Modern Medicine in Canada and the Rest of the World
September 9, 2017
The number of people suffering from obesity is increasing at an alarming rate, and this has in turn led to an increase in the risk of people suffering from heart diseases such as strokes and cardiac arrests. Learn more about Cameron Clokie: https://www.dentevents.com/speaker-profile/dr-cameron–clokie/c12024915
In order to curb these dangers, research specialists and doctors have had to find new ways of dealing with these problems. One such method is regenerative medicine, which has the potential to provide solutions to several health problems that medics have been struggling to manage and treat for a long time.
The method is still opposed by a number of people for various reasons but health experts like Dr. Cameron Clokie are trying to educate people on regenerative medicine and get them to see its great potential.
Regenerative medicine deals with promoting healing by regenerating stem cells, organs, and tissues in the human body. Dr. Cameron Clokie was among the pioneers in the field and more health experts have started gaining interest in the field as they realize its immense potential.
Research has shown that stem cell regeneration can be used to manage and treat diseases of the heart and nervous system. Stem cells have already been used in the treatment of AIDS and other serious diseases.
One of the reasons why the method has been so successful in the treatment of various health problems is the fact that there are no chances of the body rejecting the stem cells since they are not foreign to it.
This has been a major problem with other treatment methods such as organ transplants. On top of all the health benefits, regenerative medicine also has the potential to greatly boost the world’s economy.
Regenerative medicine might just be the future of modern medicine. The possibilities in the field are endless and with more research being done, more breakthroughs in the field of medicine are expected. While there are a few dangers associated with the use of stem cells, the benefits far outweigh them, and the method should, therefore, be given a fighting chance.
Dr. Cameron Clokie and other experts in the field are committed to the cause and they should be given the necessary support for them to be successful.
