The Race is on to Control A.I. and the Ages of Distraction

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of April 4th brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas

The Race Is On To Control Artificial Intelligence: Many of the tech industry’s biggest companies, like Amazon, Google, IBM and Microsoft, are jockeying to become the go-to company for A.I. In the industry’s lingo, the companies are engaged in a “platform war.”

The Ages Of Distraction: Busy, distracted, inattentive? Everybody has been since at least 1710 and here are the philosophers to prove it.

How To Hack A Election: Andrés Sepúlveda rigged elections throughout Latin America for almost a decade. He tells his story for the first time.

The Inside Story Of How Amazon Created Echo: The Echo has emerged as Amazon’s sleeper hit, a hot-selling gadget that’s being hailed as the standard-bearer for an entirely new computing paradigm in which Amazon suddenly has an edge on rivals such as Apple and Google.

Products

Drifting Cycles: How can we make bottles more sustainable and less impactful on the environment?

Brilliance: Set your location, choose what kind of lighting you want: sunlight, weather-based, urban lighting, northern lights, and more

/Human: Push the office fitness competition to a whole new level with the /Human Slack integration.

Visuals

Catalog Of Internet Artist Clubs: A detailed historical overview of selected online artist communities and platforms.

Juvenile: What is life like in a Serbian young offenders institution?

[…] Is A Toy: It can be said that being labeled a toy is necessary, but not sufficient, to become the next big thing.

Luna Table (as photo seen above): The Luna table has evolved from the research of abstraction evident throughout Zaha Hadid’s repertoire. The pristine surface of the tabletop is her starting point; the established constant to which Hadid applies the forces that inform the table’s structure. RIP.
