AWS AutoPilot gives you more visible AutoML in SageMaker Studio

Today at AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas, the company announced AutoPilot, a new tool that gives you greater visibility into automated machine learning model creation, known as AutoML. This new tool is part of the new SageMaker Studio also announced today. As AWS CEO Andy Jassy pointed out onstage today, one of the problems with AutoML is that it’s basically a black box. If you want to improve a mediocre model, or just evolve it for your business, you have no idea how it was built. The idea behind AutoPilot is to give you the ease of model creation you get from an AutoML-generated model, but also give you much deeper insight into how the system built the model. “AutoPilot …

Trump says China-US trade deal could wait until after 2020 election

Shares tumble after president claims tariffs are hurting rival more than America Donald Trump has warned that a trade deal with China could be more than a year away in comments that sent shares in Britains top 100 companies and US stock markets tumbling. Speaking at the Nato summit in London, the US president said the US was doing very well from on course to sign a first-stage deal with the US, and Washingtons silence was read as tacit approval. But only days later a new tax imposed by Paris on the sales of digital services providers. The US president said France had been wrong to hit American tech firms with a 3% levy on their global revenues. Trump denied …

How ‘the stars aligned’ for a Pussycat Dolls reunion

“Half the time, Louis doesn’t even know what he’s talking about, so I was just surprised he got that one right,” laughs his co-judge Nicole Scherzinger, lead singer of the Dolls. “You could see in his face though,” adds Carmit Bachar. “After he said it, he was like ‘did I just drop the ball?’” It’s now been officially announced that Nicole and Carmit, along with Ashley Roberts, Kimberly Wyatt and Jessica Sutta, are all set to return for nine live UK shows in April 2020. “It’s been a few years in the making,” explains Kimberly. “But I think ultimately there’s some unfinished business with the Pussycat Dolls.

Obituary: Jonathan Miller

Image copyright Terry Disney Image caption Jonathan Miller with the Beyond the Fringe team: Dudley Moore (seated), Alan Bennett and Peter Cook. He was educated at St Paul’s School – where he was reputedly talkative and entertaining – and at St John’s College, Cambridge, where he read medicine. He might have become a leading neurologist were it not for the extraordinary success of the groundbreaking satirical revue, Beyond the Fringe. It premiered at the 1960 Edinburgh Festival, and brought a kind of clever undergraduate humour to a much wider audience. It transferred to the West End and then to Broadway. Miller had just qualified as a doctor, and taken leave from his job to travel to Edinburgh. The show was …

We are producing and consuming fashion at a rate like never before and mass shopping sales are simply fanning the flames This morning I opened my inbox to find reams of emails mid-season sale, 50% off, exclusive offer enticing me to grab the best deal while it lasts. When were barraged by messages from the fashion industry to buy more, its hard to resist and I have easily succumbed to these temptations in the past. We are now producing and consuming fashion at a rate like never before. Since 2000, Europeans have purchased more pieces of clothing but spent less money in doing so: clothing prices in the EU have half as long as they did 15 years ago. Yet …

‘I go to sleep to gunshots, it doesnt stop me’: the art collective backing young black artists

Its long past time to give credit to young black and brown artists says Amanda King, whose art collective Shooting Without Bullets is breaking down barriers A black-and-white photograph shows two young men in the door frame of an abandoned storefront.

Vinted, the second-hand clothes marketplace, raises $141M at a $1B+ valuation

The market for second-hand clothes — the “circular economy” as it’s sometimes called — has been on the rise in the last several years, fuelled by economic crunches, a desire to make more responsible and less wasteful fashion choices, and a wave of digital platforms that are bringing the selling and buying of used clothes outside the charity shop. Today, one of the bigger companies in Europe working in the third of these areas is announcing a huge round of funding to double down on the trend. Vinted, a site where consumers can sell and buy second-hand fashion, has raised €128 million (around $140.9 million) in a round that is being led by Lightspeed Venture Partners, with previous backers Sprints …

There’s A Whole Association For Influencers That Feels Like A Scheme | Betches

At this point, the idea of “influencer” being a legit job title isn’t that crazy. Like it or not, Instagram and social media as a whole has created a culture where lots of people can earn a living off of their online presence. Sure, they tend to f*ck up and do roasting them for it, but their jobs aren’t actually fake. As in, they are providing a service and getting paid for it. And most real jobs and industries have professional organizations, whether they’re unions or more general membership programs. For example, actors have the Screen Actors Guild, or people in the auto industry have United Automobile Workers. Well, it turns out influencers have one too. It’s called the AIA …

Chelsea are back in fashion but Roman Abramovich is out in the cold

Special report: Roman Abramovich never hid source of his wealth and was wounded by British governments reluctance to renew visa; transfer ban increases feeling of Chelsea being on hold In the final minutes of Chelseas crisp win over Crystal Palace in their last home match Frank Lampard put a fatherly arm around 18-year-old Billy Gilmour before sending him scampering on to become the sixth academy graduate to feature in the Premier League derby. At the west London club which first imprinted an oligarchs stamp on English football, Chelseas sparkling, homegrown version this season a club legend appointed as manager promoting young players is the unexpected result of fundamental contradictions running through the club.

LVMH scoops up Tiffany for $16.2 billion

Hong Kong (CNN Business)LVMH (LVMHF) and Tiffany & Co. (TIF) are finally getting together after weeks of anticipation. LVMH is the world’s biggest luxury group and home to 75 different brands, including Christian Dior and Bulgari. Analysts have been bullish on its latest deal, saying that Tiffany is a good acquisition target because of its strong global brand. “A takeover of Tiffany could make a lot of sense,” analysts at Bernstein wrote in a research note last month. While Tiffany is one of the world’s best-known luxury brands, analysts say it still has room to grow, particularly in jewelry and watches. And LVMH’s deep pockets could help Tiffany turn around after a rocky few years, and fuel its effort to …

No, Simon Cowell, it’s not ‘time for UK-Pop’

(CNN)On Halloween in 2009, a perky quintet known as Wonder Girls became the first K-Pop group to crack the Billboard Hot 100 with their catchy, music-video driven, Korean-language single “Nobody.” Its top stars grace the covers of magazines and sell out stadiums. Lionsgate just announced a Rebel Wilson movie about an aspiring Korean American pop idol; there are, by my count, at least five K-Pop related projects under development for US television; there’s even a big-budget K-Pop musical headed to Broadway after a rave off-Broadway run. In fact, the case can be made that K-Pop is now the biggest transnational pop-culture phenomenon since hip-hop. Both are global creative platforms that connect millions of people across nations; both are nevertheless deeply …

LVMH reportedly nearing a deal to acquire iconic New York jeweler Tiffany & Co.

New York (CNN Business)Luxury giant LVMH is reportedly nearing an agreement to add another brand to its portfolio, a deal that would come wrapped in a little blue box. The luxury conglomerate sent an unsolicited proposal on October 28 to acquire Tiffany for $120 per share in cash, a valuation of $14.5 billion. At the time, the offer represented a 20% premium on the Tiffany share price but the stock jumped following the offer, closing at nearly $126 on Friday. Many analysts said combining with LVMH would be a good move for Tiffany, though the initial offer slightly undervalued the company. The 182-year old New York jeweler currently employs 14,000 people and operates 300 stores around the globe. Its little …
