US O’Reilly and Intel announce speaker lineup for 2019 Artificial Intelligence Conference - 20 Aug 2019

O'Reilly, the premier source for insight-driven learning on technology and business, has announced the lineup of speakers presenting at the O’Reilly Artificial Intelligence Conference, presented with Intel. The event will take place from September 9–12 in San Jose, Calif. at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center. Through detailed case studies, technical sessions and trainings, the AI Conference will offer a unique opportunity to tap into the leading minds in AI and network with thousands of innovative researchers, data scientists, engineers, senior developers and executives across industries.

Together, Conference Chairs Ben Lorica (O’Reilly), Julie Shin Choi (Intel) and Roger Chen (Computable Labs), along with Honorary Co-Chairs Tim O’Reilly (O’Reilly) and Peter Norvig (Google), have created a conference program designed to help organisations successfully apply AI from both a business and technical perspective, covering emerging AI techniques and technologies.

Featured speakers include: Anuradha Gali, Uber; Paige Bailey, Google; Francesca Lazzeri, Microsoft; Roshan Sumbaly, Facebook; Michael Radwin, Intuit; Hagay Lupesko, Amazon Web Services; Haixun Wang, WeWork; Mike Jordan, University of California, Berkeley; Yi Zhang, Rulai and University of California Santa Cruz; and Alex Ratner, Snorkel AI.

In advance of the conference, O’Reilly will release a report, ‘How Organizations are Sharpening their Skills to Better Understand and Use AI,’ that explores the data- and AI-related topics technology experts are most interested in. The report, authored by Lorica, found that overall content usage across all topics, grew 8 percent from 2018 to 2019 (January to July). Among the fastest-growing topics were those central to building AI applications: machine learning (up 58% from 2018), data science (up 53%), data engineering (up 58%) and AI itself (up 52%), indicating that companies and individuals are taking AI training and adoption seriously.

O’Reilly and Intel will also host the second annual AI Business Summit, taking place in conjunction with the conference. Designed specifically for executives, business leaders and strategists, the four-day event provides concise, high-level executive briefings on the most promising and important developments in AI for business.

Registration for the AI Conference is now open.

US Holden Thorp named Editor-in-Chief of the Science family of journals - 20 Aug 2019

Holden Thorp, a chemist and former provost at Washington University in St. Louis, has been named the next editor-in-chief of the Science family of journals by the Board of Directors of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Thorp will succeed Jeremy Berg, who joined AAAS in July 2016.

Thorp, currently the Rita Levi-Montalcini Distinguished University Professor at Washington University, will become the 21st editor-in-chief of Science since the journal’s inception in 1880 when his term begins on October 28, 2019.

Thorp currently holds faculty appointments in both chemistry and medicine, and served as Washington University’s provost from 2013 until concluding his term in July. During his tenure as provost, he led the university’s academic enterprise through a period of growth in several key areas, including efforts to increase socioeconomic diversity and changes to the undergraduate admissions process, which led to an academically stronger and more diverse student body. He also was instrumental in furthering the university’s prominence as an institution that drives innovation and entrepreneurship, particularly in the St. Louis region.

Founded in 1880 by journalist John Michels and with seed money from Thomas A. Edison, Science has been the official journal of the non-profit AAAS since 1900. Encompassing all fields of science and engineering, through peer-reviewed research articles as well as award-winning news reports, breakthroughs debuting in Science have ranged from wireless telegraphy and new chemical elements, to the sequencing of the human genome.

Thorp will oversee both the journal’s staff of Ph.D.-level editors and Science’s award-winning team of science journalists. Science’s editors and news reporters work in Washington, D.C., Cambridge, U.K., and other locations worldwide, from China and Japan to Europe and Africa.

Science has had 20 editors-in-chief to date, including Jeremy Berg (2016-2019), Marcia McNutt (2013-2016), Bruce Alberts (2008-2013), Donald Kennedy (2000-2008), Floyd E. Bloom (1995-2000), Daniel E. Koshland Jr. (1985-1995), and Philip Hauge Abelson (1962-1984).

US LibLynx and PSI partner on real-time Open Access Usage Reporting - 20 Aug 2019

LibLynx and PSI partner to deliver real time usage metrics to organisations wanting to learn who is accessing their Open Access (OA) content.

As the volume of OA content increases, it is becoming increasingly crucial for OA publishers to know who is reading their content and where that readership is based, especially when developing new transformative deals and providing metrics to funders. Traditional methods of usage reporting that rely on authenticating user access do not apply to OA content.

The new OA Usage Reporting solution works by capturing and analysing raw usage data from a publisher’s platform. The organisational source of usage is identified by matching incoming IP addresses against PSI’s theIPregistry.org to provide organisational detail of users and geographical data for all remote use. The analysis can also identify malicious access, such as Sci-Hub downloads, by matching data to PSI’s IP-intrusion.org database.

OA usage reports will be available by title, source organisation, organisation type, and geographical location. Reports can be viewed online or downloaded from any existing website by embedding the LibLynx reporting widget. Alternatively, reports can be delivered as a data feed for ingestion into a third-party analytics tool. Libraries and other information and knowledge managers will be able to access organisational usage data directly from their profile on theIPregistry.org.
