“Forget understanding digital, make digital understand you” – Yifei Chai, artificial intelligence expert, comes to the Communication Days

first_imgYifei Chai, an innovation architect, advises Disney, Adidas and 20th Century Fox how to stimulate human emotion in an innovative way in the digital world, and as we know that in truism everything revolves around emotions and experiences, then the tourism sector can certainly learn a lot from the main lecturer at the Communications Days. Yifei Chai Interestingly, he will hold as many as two lectures at this year’s festival in Rovinj and thus become the first person so far at the Days of Communications to succeed. The lecture will answer the question: How to create the best emotional experience with your customers through creative thinking and innovation? For more information on Communication Days, visit the official website of the festival www.danikomunikacija.com. Clients describe his approach as emotional alchemy. Innovation, concept and strategy, art and creative direction, design and craftsmanship – areas where Yifei Chai is an undisputed authority – help advertisers and brands to design unforgettable, touching and surprising experiences to increase a sense of deeper connection with the audience. Communication Days will be held from March 28 to 31, 2019. From year to year, the Days of Communication record an increasing number of visitors. The organizers are announcing interesting and diverse content and invite all advertisers, agencies, public relations experts, media representatives, students and other professionals from the communications industry to the festival, which last year broke all attendance records. center_img Artificial intelligence in tourism is more and more pronounced, because today when we collect and have large databases, we must know how to understand and apply them. Also, artificial intelligence in a large “scheme” of data can show us some patterns that we do not see, and which we can use wisely later in communication and promotion to the target group. In Japan, on the other hand, a couple of hotels have been opened where there are no staff, whose role has been taken over by robots. One such hotel was recently even closed. How all this affects or will affect the current development of the tourism sector, we can find out from experts on this topic. His second lecture “Human Survival Guide in the Age of AI – How to Coexist with the Coolest and Baddest of AI” is ideal for fans of artificial intelligence (AI). Chai envisioned the lecture as comparing fictional AIs (like Terminator or Ex-Machine) with real AIs like IBM Watson or search engines like Google that Hollywood has long portrayed as the ultimate heroes or extreme villains. Chai regularly emphasizes that we already live in the future and unquestioningly follow the instructions of artificial intelligence. Lecturer Yifei Chai, if we could, we would like to announce twice “, says the director of the Communication Day program, Dunja Ivana Ballon. Forget understanding digital, make digital understand you – the starting point of his first lecture is “Digital Empathy” which will address issues such as how we can become more humane when subjected to artificial platforms that do not speak human language and how we can create experiences that will enable us not to forget our human nature in interaction with the machine.last_img read more

Red Cross trains thousands of N.Koreans to help cope with coronavirus, floods

first_img“Families are being supported with psychological first aid and awareness activities to maintain hygiene and stay healthy,” he added.Kim has also sent special aid packages to Kaesong, and state media reported on Monday that grain supplies from Pyongyang had arrived in another flood-ravaged county he visited last week.North Korea has not confirmed any coronavirus cases but has enforced strict quarantine measures. South Korea has said there is no evidence the returning defector was infected.The IFRC last month provided North Korea with kits designed to run up to 10,000 coronavirus tests, alongside infrared thermometers, surgical masks, gowns and protective gears.In South Korea, at least 32 people have died after 49 days of monsoon rains, the country’s longest since 1987, caused flooding, landslides and evacuations.  The Red Cross has trained 43,000 North Korean volunteers to help communities, including the locked-down city of Kaesong, fight the novel coronavirus and provide flood assistance, an official with the relief organization said on Monday.North Korean leader Kim Jong Un declared an emergency last month and imposed a lockdown on Kaesong, near the inter-Korean border, after a man who defected to the South in 2017 returned to the city showing coronavirus symptoms.Heavy rain and flooding in recent days have also sparked concern about crop damage and food supplies in the isolated country. The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) has built an extensive network of North Korean volunteers to help residents in all nine provinces to avoid the virus and reduce damage from floods and landslides, spokesman Antony Balmain said.”Hundreds of homes have been damaged and large areas of rice fields have been submerged due to heavy rain and some flash flooding,” Balmain said.Precipitation levels in the North this month were higher than 2007 when the country suffered its worst floods, a spokesman at Seoul’s Unification Ministry overseeing inter-Korean affairs said.In Kaesong, which was grappling with both the lockdown and floods, IFRC volunteers were providing 2,100 families most at risk with relief items including tarpaulins, kitchen sets, quilts, hygiene kits and water containers, Balmain said.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Newcastle boss Steve McClaren hoping for happy new year after disappointing 2015

first_img The 54-year-old said: “That hasn’t been good enough. We’re working and working and seeing the progress. More consistency needs to be there and we need a damn better second half then we did the first. “We need a better 2016 than 2015, when there wasn’t a lot to cheer about all the way through.” McClaren was charged with the task of securing a top-eight finish and targeting cup success when he was handed his job during the summer, but life on Tyneside has proved challenging to say the least during the first half of the campaign. Newcastle have won just five times in all competitions since his arrival and only four times in the league, and two of those three-point hauls have come in their last three outings. However, the head coach remains philosophical, insisting that the introduction of a new manager, new methods and new players always meant it was likely to be a rocky road initially. He said: “You always have to make targets. We’re not even halfway through yet. Let’s see where we finish. “We had a new manager coming in and new players as well. There was also the aftermath of what happened last season. It was very much an unknown. “We said look at it after 10 to 12 games, but then someone said it’s usually the first 19 and we have two of them to go. “We are where we are, but we want to have a better second half to the season than we did the first.” Newcastle head coach Steve McClaren is targeting a significant improvement in 2016 after admitting 2015 has simply not been good enough. The Magpies head into their Boxing Day clash with Everton sitting in 17th place in the Barclays Premier League table and having won just eight games in all competitions during the calendar year to date. That comes nowhere near matching the club’s relatively modest ambitions, let alone those of the fans, and McClaren is well aware things have to improve significantly if he is to make a success of his reign with the club having collected just 30 points from their last 36 league fixtures. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

USC’s golf teams will face tough tests this weekend

first_imgThe No. 1-ranked USC women’s golf team will attempt to defend its Pac-12 tournament title this weekend at the Trysting Tree G.C. in Corvallis, Ore. The event, hosted by Oregon State, will feature five other top-10 teams — No. 2 UCLA, No. 4 Arizona State, No. 7 Stanford, No. 9 Arizona and No. 10 Washington.Final swings · Senior Jeffrey Kang will participate in his last Pac-12 Championship this weekend. Kang finished 60th at last year’s event. – Courtesy of USC Sports InformationIt has been a banner year for the Women of Troy, who had never started a golf season by winning more than one event. This year, however, they crushed that record by claiming championships in their first five events.Though the Women of Troy have used a variety of lineups in its regular season events this year, head coach Andrea Gaston has decided that this weekend will feature a group of golfers she has utilized four times already this season. Gaston has chosen senior Sophia Popov, junior Doris Chen, sophomores Annie Park and Kyung Kim, and freshman Karen Chung.The women’s team will tee off on Friday at 9:40 a.m. with 7th-seed Oregon. USC has now won 11 of its past 13 tournaments, and 15 of 19 going all the way back to the fall of 2012. This spring, the veteran group of players includes all five members from last year’s team that won the NCAA title by a record 21 strokes.The No. 21-ranked men’s golf team will also be busy this weekend, traveling to The Gallery G.C. in Marana, Ariz., for its own Pac-12 Championship.The men’s team will look to bounce back from their performance at the Western Intercollegiate Golf Tournament last weekend. The Trojans finished sixth, behind four teams that will be competing against them this weekend in Tucson, Ariz. Among them are No. 3 Cal, No. 6 Stanford and No. 17 Washington. Head coach Chris Zambri noted that his team would need to improve on their previous performance, and play as a collective unit, in order to play at their potential.“They all have areas of their game that they focus on in order to play well. As coaches, we may try to shine a light on something that needs improvement,” Zambri said. “Rare is the golfer without an area in need of improvement. They have all been working tremendously hard and smart in the days and weeks leading up to this stretch run.”Freshman Rico Hoey, a newly selected U.S. Palmer Cup Team participant, will look to lead his team this weekend. Hoey tied for third place at the team’s last event, one of his seven top-seven finishes so far this season. The Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. native will represent the U.S. in England at the Palmer Cup this summer. Four other Trojans have played in the event in program history, the last being Tim Sluiter in 2008 and 2009.Besides the tough finish at the Western Intercollegiate, the Trojans enter this weekend after finishing top two in three out of their four previous events. Starting with 36 holes this Friday, and concluding with 18 holes each on Saturday and Sunday, the Trojans will start the Pac-12 championships teeing off at 6:30 a.m. along with California and Colorado.Zambri and women’s head coach Andrea Gaston are no strangers to this type of golf competition. Gaston recently helped the Women of Troy win the NCAA championship in 2013, and Zambri’s résumé includes a plethora of individual and team champions that he has produced while coaching at USC. The eighth-year coach is confident in his team’s chances over the weekend.“We are a good enough team to win the Pac-12,” Zambri said. “In order to do so, though, each of our six players will need to play well. We have two seniors who are great Trojans that will be graduating in May — Ramsey Sahyoun and Jeffrey Kang. It would be great to send them off with a Pac-12 title.”If one thing is certain, both the women’s and men’s teams contain all the tools needed to succeed this weekend at the Pac-12 championships. Both groups of golfers have consistently shown that they can compete soundly with the toughest competition, and this weekend will only provide these teams with a stage to showcase the talent that they have polished all season long.Follow both team this weekend online at Golfstat.com.last_img read more

3 things we learned from Syracuse football’s 31-24 win over Connecticut

Watch these receivers to find outFast reaction: 3 quick takeaways from Syracuse’s 31-24 win over ConnecticutGallery: Syracuse football defeats Connecticut, 31-24 Facebook Twitter Google+ EAST HARTFORD, Connecticut — Syracuse (2-2, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) climbed back to .500 by defeating Connecticut (2-2, 0-1 American Athletic), 31-24, on Saturday afternoon at Rentschler Field.Here’s what we learned from the Orange victory.Syracuse still hasn’t figured out its running gameOnce Dontae Strickland ran for over 100 yards in the first half against South Florida last week, it seemed like the Orange had found a consistent way to move the ball on the ground.After all, through the first two games, the team was averaging just 3.2 yards per carry. No running back had more than 40 yards in the Louisville game, and only Neal eclipsed that mark against Colgate thanks to a 49-yard score on his first carry.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut it seems like the first half against USF was more an aberration than a turning point. With a completely new offensive line, the running backs still struggled finding any holes. The team finished with just 62 yards on 26 carries, both season lows, with 35 of those yards coming in the fourth quarter.Tony D. Curtis | Staff PhotographerCole Murphy has Dino Babers’ trust despite rough gameSyracuse’s kicker Cole Murphy had been rock solid through the first three games of the season. He had nailed three kicks from 40 or more yards and his only miss through seven kicks on the season was from 55 yards to end the half against Louisville.He struggled against UConn on Saturday, missing two field goals, including one from 33 yards out that would have put the Orange up 10 late in the game. He also launched two kickoffs out of bounds, giving the Huskies the ball at the 35-yard line. Still, head coach Dino Babers said he supports Murphy.“Kickers are kickers. Flags start blowing and they start looking around,” Babers said. “Could we do better? Yeah. Am I OK with him? I’m OK with him. Do I want to trade him? Heck no, I don’t want to trade him. I like Cole a lot. He’s going to help us.”SU doesn’t need to go for it on fourth down to winLast week, Dino Babers answered questions postgame after the loss to USF about why he went for it so many times on fourth down. At the time he said that he thought SU needed those conversions to win the game.This time around, Syracuse didn’t go for a single fourth down. Its first opportunity was a fourth-and-1 from around midfield, but Sterling Hofrichter came on to punt it away. Hofrichter ended up punting five times in the game while Murphy attempted three field goals.Had Murphy made all his kicks, the Orange would have had bigger leads at different points in the game. Even without those makes, the Orange proved it could win without running a fourth down play.
