Strands Brings Recommendation Technology to Banking

first_imgStrands, the recommendation and lifestreaming service we’ve written about here before, announced a much anticipated deal this morning that will put it in the driver’s seat for financial recommendations served up to millions of online banking customers around the world. The company’s recommendation test-case in music is no longer all they will be known for around the world.Customers of Spanish bank BBVA will now be offered recommended products and services, individual and anonymized aggregate analytics and personalized goal setting and alert services, all based on their banking activities. BBVA sees more than 1.3 billion online transactions from 40 countries annually. Will their customers appreciate these services? We think they probably will. Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#mobile#Product Reviews#web What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … marshall kirkpatrick Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagementcenter_img What’s Interesting About This Deal?Using the Strands Social Recommender technology, BBVA will be able to offer intelligent observations and suggestions for personal finance. A demo of the product shows, for example, that users of the system might be given interesting statistics about the financial activities of people in a particular demographic group, then asked whether they belong to that group. It’s like having a private, personal, math-powered financial adviser available for your use on demand.With interfaces for the iPhone, BlackBerry and Nokia phones – analytics and recommendations will also be available outside of the desktop web browser. This is the kind of heavyweight application to see coming from online recommendation services.Privacy ConcernsHow will bank customers feel about having their personal and financial details thrown into the collective pot for analysis of recommendations to other customers? We think it may take some getting used to, but that kind of information is undoubtedly being aggregated inside of banks already. The prospect of allowing users to benefit directly from their collective data is an appealing one.Will the recommendations offered all point crudely toward buying more services from the bank? Given the huge war chest that Strands commands and the caliber of hires they’ve made over the last year, we hope that the company’s banking recommendations and observations will prove truly useful and engaging for customers and not just for the bank’s bottom line.Only time will tell, but we’ve said for some time that in a world drowning in data – powerful recommendation technologies that help point towards personally meaningful information have huge potential. Financial services are the next frontier for these experimental technologies and we hope that Strands will disclose statistics in time demonstrating the impact their service had on the financial lives of users around Europe.

Kahaani: Vidya Balan’s performance appreciated

first_imgAfter her outstanding performance in female-centric Ishqiya, No One Killed Jessica and The Dirty Picture, actress Vidya Balan carries forward the legacy of hits with Kahaani .Kolkata Metro objects to Vidya’s push scene in Kahaani. Watch video Bachchan sings for Vidya’s Kahaani. Watch video Kahaani music launch. See pics Vidya Balan, who turned the tables for female actors in Bollywood by carrying The Dirty Picture strongly and boldly on her shoulders in 2011, plays the lead in Kahaani.If she effortlessly essayed the role of a sex symbol in The Dirty Picutre, it was a cakewalk to play a pregnant woman in search of her husband in Kahaani, says Vidya Balan.Gautam Dutta, COO, PVR said that the film has superseded their expectation. It is being co-distributed by Pen India Pvt. Ltd, Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Boundscript Motion Pictures Pvt. Ltd”Women in Bollywood have always been secondary. It’s predominantly men who have taken centrestage in our films. Even earlier, barring some films like Mother India and Umrao Jaan, women in Indian cinema had marginal roles. In recent times, The Dirty Picture has been an exception,” film historian S.M.M. Ausaja said.Kahaani, the drama-thriller made at a shoestring budget of Rs.8 crore, is receiving positive response from both the critics and audiences.The film has opened very well. In fact, the collection in India on Friday was Rs.2.95 crore and on Saturday it earned Rs.4.5 crore. “Kahaani is a film that is made for serious and sensible cinegoers. Vidya’s performance is being appreciated by audience. The film is not entertaining like The Dirty Picture, that is why it has a niche audience. But it will not only recover its cost but also earn profits,” said Delhi based distributor Joginder Mahajan.In fact, the 33-year-old broke the stereotype that a commercial project about a woman doesn’t work.Between the 1980s and 1990s, Bollywood produced a mixed bag of female-oriented movies – some like Umraao Jaan, Prem Rog, Ram Teri Ganga Maili, Khoon Bhari Maang, Nache Mayuri and Damini were hits, while art films like Mirch Masala, Arth, Mandi, Rudaali, Lekin, Sardari Begum, Mammo, Mrityudand, Maya Memsaab and Fire earned critical acclaim.Indian women are also calling the shots in the corporate world, sports and politics and now it seems the film industry is trying to change as well.”India is changing; women are on top in every other realm and yet our heroines are the hero’s sidekick. I hope more writers see that potential in women-oriented scripts, or scripts where the woman is treated in a strong, powerful, real way,” actress Kalki Koechlin said.Many, like producer Ekta Kapoor, are furthering the cause with strong projects and bold themes. “I am about to sign a comedy movie which will begin after three months.” I have been asked not to disclose details about it. I wanted to try the genre for a long time as I have not got a chance to do an out and out comic flick,” Vidya said.Well, Vidya take a break and return with a bang.- With inputs from IANSadvertisementlast_img read more

Buckeye brainteasers 5 questions for Ohio State vs Akron

3. What should you expect from redshirt senior quarterback Joe Bauserman? At a Tuesday press conference, first-year coach Luke Fickell announced that Bauserman would probably take the first snap of Saturday’s game against Akron.For his career at OSU, Bauserman is 25-for-47 passing for 320 yards, two touchdown passes and one interception.At the Buckeyes’ Aug. 20 jersey scrimmage, Bauserman demonstrated great accuracy and the ability to lead receivers with his throws. Assuming he has time to throw, you can expect more of the same from the fifth-year senior on Saturday.At a Tuesday press conference, senior tackle J.B. Shugarts’ spoke highly of Bauserman’s athleticism and scrambling.“(Bauserman) is a little more of a pocket passer,” Shugarts said, “but he’s a lot more athletic then people give him credit for when he gets out of the pocket.” 1. How will the suspensions of junior running back Jordan Hall, sophomore defensive back Corey Brown and junior defensive back Travis Howard impact Saturday’s game against Akron?OSU announced Thursday that Hall, Brown and Howard were suspended for the Akron game for receiving impermissible benefits of $300 or less each in total at a charity event they attended earlier in the year.Similar to the suspensions of DeVier Posey, Mike Adams, Dan Herron and Solomon Thomas for the first five games of the 2011 season, the latest round of Buckeyes’ suspensions significantly hurts the team.The latest OSU depth chart listed Howard as the starter at left corner back while Hall was slated to start as the Buckeyes’ punt and kick returner, as well as tailback.For starters, don’t be surprised if Akron sophomore quarterback Clayton Moore tests Howard’s replacement, sophomore Dominic Clarke, early and often.Perhaps more significant is the loss of Hall, who led all Buckeyes’ kick returners in 2010 while averaging 27.9 yards per return. He was also the only OSU kick returner to record a touchdown last season.As a rusher, Hall recorded modest numbers last season, gaining 169 yards on 37 attempts and scoring two touchdowns. However modest those statistics are, taking the team’s current No. 1 rusher out of the equation on Saturday is a negative development and limits the OSU ground game considerably. 4. Will Akron beat OSU for the first time in 117 years? In a word, no.Akron’s lone win against the Buckeyes — or any current member of the Big Ten for that matter — occurred at the Ohio State Fair on Sept. 5, 1894. The Zips defeated OSU, 12-6, that day.Don’t expect Akron to claim win No. 2 this Saturday.The Zips posted a 1-11 record in 2010 and it’s safe to say that 2011 is a rebuilding year for the program. Additionally, Ohio Stadium is a tough place to lay the groundwork for a rebuilding season.Thirteen returning starters on offense and defense should help Akron avoid an embarrassing result, but an upset win is unlikely.5. Assuming the Buckeyes win, is there reason to be concerned if they don’t win big? “Whether I’m playing against my brother or I’m playing against someone I don’t like, to me, it’s gotta be competitive,” Fickell said at an Aug. 20 press conference. “If I can beat them, I want to beat them as bad as I can.”Based on that quote, you can bet that no one wants OSU to beat Akron in convincing fashion more than the team itself.The Buckeyes are champing at the bit to take the field and play ball. You can’t quantify or measure the different emotions felt by the players in the OSU locker room during this off-season, but it isn’t hard to imagine that they’ll be looking to upend any obstacles in their path — that includes Akron.I like the Buckeyes to win convincingly, but if Akron does make a game of it, keep the number of suspended players in mind, as well as the significance of those players. The suspensions that were announced Thursday are especially relevant as they could have possibly forced some last minute alterations to Saturday’s game plan.Suspensions aside, the Buckeyes will take care of business on Saturday.Game prediction — OSU 38 – 10 Akron 2. How will the Ohio State offensive line fare in protecting the Buckeyes’ quarterbacks against Akron?Ohio State coaches have already said that the team lacks depth at the offensive line position. That, coupled with the fact that the offensive line allowed 12 sacks in the April 23 spring game and the Aug. 20 jersey scrimmage combined, makes the position an area of concern. Akron collected only 17 sacks during the 2010 season, however.An unsuccessful showing by the offensive line against Akron would be cause for additional concern because OSU will face stronger and faster defensive opposition in almost every other game this season. Protecting the OSU quarterbacking tandem of redshirt senior Joe Bauserman and true freshman Braxton Miller shouldn’t be an overwhelming task for this weekend, though. read more

Ohio States Joey Bosa named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week

After a six-tackle, 2.5-sack performance against Penn State, Ohio State sophomore defensive lineman Joey Bosa has been named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week.Bosa, who leads the Big Ten in sacks (8.0) and tackles for loss (11.5) clinched Saturday’s game for the Buckeyes when he brought down Penn State sophomore quarterback Christian Hackenberg on fourth-and-five in double-overtime.The award is the first for Bosa, and he becomes the first Buckeye to win the award since former OSU linebacker Ryan Shazier won it last November following a 20-tackle performance against Indiana on Nov. 23.Bosa, who has started every game this season, started 10 games as a true freshman in 2013 and tallied 7.5 sacks and 13.5 tackles for loss.The Fort Lauderdale, Fla., native was also named Athlon’s Defensive Player of the Week on Sunday.Bosa and the Buckeyes are scheduled to take on the Illinois Fighting Illini Saturday at Ohio Stadium. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. read more

Local Legislators Talk Possible Second Special Session

first_imgRepresentative Sarah Vance: “There’s many of us in the House minority, the House Republicans, who believe we can accomplish the work now. The operating budget could have been completed before the 120 days expired, but because people were holding out for what they want they did not move it. There was not any new things done this week that could not have been done prior.” KSRM News spoke with each of our local legislators on Tuesday, and none of them seemed optimistic that the Legislature will be able to find agreement prior to the end of the first special session on Friday. Representative Gary Knopp: “A second special session to address the capital budget and the PFD is really what I think needs to happen. We’re just out of time. We can’t pass a capital budget now and expect the Senate to rubber stamp it and concur, and no time to conference it. That is my belief. Unless something strange happens, I think that’s what needs to happen. We are simply out of time.”  The Senate unanimously passed the Fiscal Year 2020 operating budget during a floor session on Monday.  The Alaska House of Representatives passed the same operating budget on Sunday which does not include a PFD. Representative Ben Carpenter: “It is a possibility if the House Majority fails to act in the next three days on a capital budget then we would have to go into a second special session in order to have a capital budget. We are at the mercy of people who are not thinking logically. I do not understand why we can’t do the job the state has asked us to do in a timely manner.” center_img Senator Peter Micciche: “We unfortunately clearly need another special session to settle the PFD issue. Although half of us, including me, in the Senate voted for a $3,000 PFD and tried to get it back into the budget yesterday we couldn’t get an 11th vote. At this time the House has not made any kind of a definitive statement on a dividend. A legislative session should be over in 90 days, 110 at the most, unfortunately the House was late to organize. We had to pass a budget and send it to the governor so that the process can continue on an operating budget, and so he has opportunity to veto what he believes is right.”  Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Lawmakers won’t be packing their bags anytime soon amid a looming second special session, where they’re expected to reach a compromise on two major issues… the PFD and a capital budget. House and Senate leaders expect the budget bill, HB 39, to be ready for Governor Mike Dunleavy’s review within three days. The vote averts a government shutdown and allows state services to continue with the next fiscal year beginning July 1.last_img read more
