Microsoft is aiming to train about 15,000 workers by 2022 on AI skills

Microsoft is investing a lot of money on training people on Artificial Intelligence in partnership with the education provider General Assembly. The goal is to make sure that they train 15,000 people by 2022 so that there is an increase in people who have knowledge in Artificial Intelligence, machine learning along with data engineering and more.

This program will first train a total of 2,000 workers in the machine learning role. In the three years, they will be training a total of 13,000 workers with Artificial Intelligence related skills. Microsoft will be joining the General Assembly’s Artificial Intelligence Standards Board, with other companies. In the next six months, the Board will be helping in defining AI skills and develop assessment and also create credentials.

The training which has been organized by Microsoft will be conducted with people who are not skilled enough to use Azure in aerospace, manufacturing and elsewhere. The training will totally focus on the needs of the customer who are looking to use Artificial Intelligence.

The training will include Artificial Intelligence Talent Network that will help source candidates for a longer period of time. General Assembly will be helping with the assistance of connected campuses and the broader Adecco ecosystem to these jobs pipeline.

Microsoft has a vision for the job creators because of AI in the future. There will 133 million new roles created and this training will come in handy for people who will be taking them. The main focus is to make sure that software along with cloud customers can find people who have knowledge in working with Azure.

“As a technology company committed to driving innovation, we have a responsibility to help workers access the AI training they need to ensure they thrive in the workplace of today and tomorrow,” said Jean-Philippe Courtois, executive vice president and president of Global Sales, Marketing and Operations at Microsoft, in a statement. “We are thrilled to combine our industry and technical expertise with General Assembly to help close the skills gap and ensure businesses can maximize their potential in our AI-driven economy.”

Lyrics On Google’s Results Page Will Appear With It Source Page

Google was recently accused by Genius for copying their lyrics. Since this is a serious accusation, Google is definitely not sitting idle. In response to this, Google has decided to soon attribute the third-parties providing lyrics. This will let you know where the lyrics have come from. Not just that, but it will also direct any complaints directly to the third-party providers instead of Google.

In their defense, Google has also stated that they do not crawl or scrape sites to find lyrics. Instead, they license the lyrics from outsiders. The lyrics are also automatically updated as soon as any corrections or changes are made to it.

One of the main suppliers of lyrics to Google, LyricFind has claimed that they have not copied any lyrics from Genius. The company even argued that the exact lyrics are available in other sites as well. They claimed that they have taken the lyrics from another company that was using Genius lyrics without the company’s permission.

However, this hasn’t solved or calmed the issue at Genius’ office. But this definitely shows the messiness involved in lyrics search. There are several companies that provide lyrics and it is actually not possible to find out who’s’ honest and who’s not.

Picture-In-Picture Mode Tested By Apple TV Beta

The upcoming beta version of Apple tvOS 13 is expected to come with a surprise. The company is planning to introduce its newest feature picture-in-picture mode. This will allow users to browse while watching a video at the same time. The release of the feature was not announced by the company at the time of WWDC keynote that took place earlier this month.

The PnP feature is not going to allow you to stream or watch video on top of another video. Instead, it will shrink a screen to a small box while you watch the main screen in the background. You can thus, navigate the whole operating system without pausing or stopping your show. With the help of on-screen controls, you will be able to easily switch from the video thumbnail to the rest of the screen. You can even move the thumbnail to different corners or even close it entirely. The release of the PnP feature on Apple TV is a mark of expansion. It was first introduced in ios 9 which was then launched as a multi-tasking feature for iPad.

Other than the PnP mode, tvOA 13 will also be made compatible with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One controllers. Along with that, you will also be able to read lyrics on the screen while you listen to your favorite track. In addition, it will also provide multi-user support for each person’s profile.

Google accused by Genius for copying its lyrics data

Most often we rely on Google lyric’s results instead of using individual lyrics sites. If you think you are the only one doing that you are wrong. Genius has recently accused Google of copying its lyrics data. Not just that, but the company has also claimed that Google has hurt its website traffic. As stated by Genius, the evidence can be found in the apostrophes. The apostrophes are deliberately alternated between curved and straight lines to form a watermark. The watermark represents ‘red-handed’ in Morse code. Genius has found over 100s of Google’s lyrics that include the exact apostrophes.

Google, however, has clearly denied any such activity as stated to the Wall Street Journal. Google is one of those companies that takes copyright issues very seriously. As stated by LyricFind to the Wall Street Journal that their staff does not source lyrics from Genius. Both the companies Google and LyricFind have clearly denied any matches with the lyrics of Genius.

No formal actions are taken yet but Genius has still claimed that Google is violating both its terms or service and antitrust law. The company claims that they have alerted Google in 2007. If Genius tries to file a case, it may not get much success in it as they don’t own the lyrics. They are only allowed to display them on their platform.

Google in its statement to Engadget:

 “The lyrics displayed in the information boxes and in knowledge panels on Google search are licensed from a variety of sources and are not scraped from sites of the web. We take data quality and creator rights very seriously and hold our licensing partners accountable to the terms of our agreement. We’re investigating this issue with our data partners and if we find that partners are not upholding good practices we will end our agreements.”
