TechInnovation. Far-Right Fundraising on Telegram (Ariel Bogle, GNET)

The Australian far-right is using a diverse range of online tools to fundraise and solicit donations. In this ecosystem, the messaging app Telegram plays a significant role — providing an entry point into a broader content and financial network, and facilitating international connections.

In a recent report for ASPI, I examined a sample of nine Australian Telegram channels that share right-wing extremist (RWE) content and found they were connected to more than 20 different funding mechanisms, platforms and tools. This preliminary map included live-streaming platforms such as DLive and Entropy that allow ‘tipping’ and other support. Financial opportunities were promoted by the sale of merchandise and subscription platforms such as Patreon and SubscribeStar. Donation requests via Buy Me a Coffee and PayPal, or via various cryptocurrency wallets, were also posted in the channels for purposes ranging from legal fees to general support for content creation.

TechInnovation. China’s new regulation of platforms: a message for American policymakers (Tom Wheeler, Brookings)

At a time when the United States and its Western allies are struggling to determine the proper oversight of digital platform companies, the Chinese government is moving decisively ahead with its own plan. That China has designed regulations for these digital platform companies to stimulate competition and innovation should send a message to Western policymakers.

TechInnovation. Enrollment algorithms are contributing to the crises of higher education (Alex Engler, Brookings)

Hundreds of higher education institutions are procuring algorithms that strategically allocate scholarships to convince more students to enroll. In doing so, these enrollment management algorithms help colleges vary the cost of attendance to students’ willingness to pay, a crucial aspect of competition in the higher education market. This paper elaborates on the specific two-stage process by which these algorithms first predict how likely prospective students are to enroll, and second help decide how to disburse scholarships to convince more of those prospective students to attend the college. These algorithms are valuable to colleges for institutional planning and financial stability, as well as to help reach their preferred financial, demographic, and scholastic outcomes for the incoming student body.

Techinnovation. I microservizi aiutano a gestire le complessità, il parere di Sony (Matt Bowers, Tech From The Net)

Agili e in grado di gestire le complessità. Opinione di Matt Bowers, direttore Professional Solutions Team Sony European Professional Engineering sui microservizi.

I microservizi vengono spesso paragonati a mattoncini Lego semplici da incastrare. E anche se il paragone funziona a livello di marketing, la verità è che i microservizi possono offrire una maggiore agilità.

TechInnovation. Trasformazione data-driven, il sottile equilibrio tra hardware e software (Glenn Fitzgerald, Danilo Rivalta, Tech From The Net)

Glenn Fitzgerald, Chief Data Officer, Product Business di Fujitsu e Danilo Rivalta, CEO di FINIX Technology Solutions, ci parlano hardware e software in un mondo data-driven.

In qualità di Chief Data Officer della divisione Product Business di Fujitsu, Glenn Fitzgerald ha la responsabilità di aiutare i clienti ad abbracciare la strategia di trasformazione data-driven messa a punto da Fujitsu. In questo articolo spiega come mai oggi i clienti siano più interessati al software che all’hardware.

Per molti “veterani” della tecnologia può essere una cosa dolorosa da ammettere, ma sempre più spesso i clienti non dimostrano più interesse nei confronti dell’hardware enterprise. Anche quando sono disposti a parlare di qualcosa di tecnico, si tratta solitamente di stack software e ambienti di sviluppo, non di hardware. L’hardware è sempre più frequentemente considerato come una commodity, come conseguenza della diffusione del cloud e del predominio degli hyper-scaler.

TechInnovation. Formazione e realtà estesa, il futuro per il settore industriale (Maurizio Galardo, Tech From The Net)

Maurizio Galardo, chief technologist, XR di AVEVA, ci racconta le innovazioni che trasformeranno i meccanismi di formazione nell’industria nei prossimi cinque anni.

Di fronte alla pandemia, innumerevoli aziende nel mondo hanno accelerato rapidamente i propri piani di migrazione digitale. La conseguenza è che oggi vi è un maggior numero di organizzazioni che si dedicano al training virtuale immersivo concretizzandone i relativi vantaggi: conservazione più efficace dei dati, maggior sicurezza, produttività superiore.

Il concetto di ‘gamification’ – i principi e le teorie che sono alla base dei giochi – è stato il motore di una rapida progressione del training virtuale. Originariamente destinate ai consumatori appassionati di tecnologia, le tecniche di gamification vengono oggi applicate sempre più spesso a casi reali di formazione in ambito industriale.

TechInnovation. Logistics robotics startup Ambi raises $26M (Brian Heater, TechCrunch)

Five months ago, Ambi Robotics emerged from stealth with a $6 million raise. Today the Bay Area-based firm is back with several times that, announcing a $26 million Series A, led by Tiger Global. The new round also features participation from existing investors, including Bow Capital, Vertex Ventures US and The House Fund.

The startup first hit our radar through the involvement of UC Berkeley (and frequent TC Sessions: Robotics guest Ken Goldberg). Ambi operates in the pick and place robotics space — it’s a crowded category, but one with an intense level of interest, as more warehouse and fulfillment centers are accelerating toward automation after the shutdowns of the past year.
