Si chiama ‘Rankbrain’ l’esperimento avviato un anno fa dal colosso di Mountain View. Il capo del motore di ricerca ha sbattuto la porta e ne è andato.

Il solo fatto che Google possa avere paura è una notizia che dovrebbe spaventare tutti noi. Un anno fa il colosso di Mountain Viewha avviato un progetto che si chiama “Rankbrain”. Amit Singhal, 46 anni, un vero veterano di Google e capo del business piĂą redditizio, quello del motore di ricerca, autorizzò l’utilizzo di intelligenza artificialeper una parte non marginale del gigantesco flusso di query che ogni secondo arriva dalla rete. Le cose non devono essere andate poi così bene. Singhal ha lasciato la poltrona a John Giannandrea, il manager che, fino a pochi giorni fa coordinava e dirigeva la ricerca sull’intelligenza artificiale. Si tratta di un avvicendamento che lascia trasparire un disagio aziendale che è … read more

Secondo i dati di GSMA (Group Special Mobile Association), più della metà del mondo ha ora un telefono cellulare, ma il numero di connessioni mobili attive è quasi il doppio di quello degli utenti unici. Fra utenze personali e collegamenti M2M (machine to machine) si può dire che il numero delle Sim mobili è uguale a quello della popolazione mondiale.

Secondo i dati raccolti nel report “We are social – Digital Yearbook 2016” di Simon Kemp il trend di crescita di device mobili attivi ha portato ad un’accelerazione… read more

It’s never been easier to ignore advertising.

Between the growing number of television cord-cutters, the rise of ad blockers and the ongoing struggle to effectively connect with people on their mobile devices, there’s no longer a guarantee that anyone will look at the things advertisers make. (altro…)

Tim Berners-Lee’s first World Wide Web page flickered to life at CERN on December 20th, 1990.

If the web were a person, it wouldn’t have trouble renting a car from now on: the world’s first website, Tim Berners-Lee’s World Wide Web, went online 25 years ago today. The inaugural page wasn’t truly public when it went live at CERN on December 20th, 1990 (that wouldn’t happen until August 1991), and it wasn’t much more than an explanation of how thehypertext-based project worked. However, it’s safe to say that this plain page laid the groundwork for much of the internet as you know it — even now, you probably know one or two people who still think the web is the internet.



Wander around WIRED’s San Francisco headquarters on any given day and you’re likely to encounter quite a zoo: hoverboard-riding video shooters dodging begoggled editors who are testing beta VR hardware; one of our favorite TV makers coming in for a meeting; security writers debating the latest cyberwar skirmish around the corner from a conference call with the founder of the Valley’s latest unicorn company; and dogs (10 of them, by my count).

But this time of year, the always lively view from my desk takes on an especially electric feel as we train our focus on a new horizon. So to give you a sense of what we’re gearing up to cover in 2016, I tapped the hive mind of writers and editors and pulled together a list of the big developments we expect to be following as the year unfolds. There’s a lot to look forward to. (altro…)

The fact that everyone calls them “hoverboards” is annoying, but you know what’s more annoying? The fact that they keep exploding. Here’s why that happens.

THOSE SELF-BALANCING SCOOTERS that everyone’s calling “hoverboards” don’t actually hover. But that’s not the strangest thing about them—that would be the fact that this year’s most popular holiday gift keeps catching on fire. (altro…)


An explosion of graffiti workshops are offering people a chance for (legal) self-expression – complete with glasses of Cabernet and seniors holding stencils.

A longtime fan of street art, Lyla Sultan had never — until one recent evening — held a can of spray paint before. While sipping on a glass of Cabernet, the 24-year marketer approached a brick wall and practiced maintaining a firm pressure on the nozzle of her can so that her paint sprayed evenly. (altro…)
