Cisco announced the acquisition of the startup Accompany, which specializes in artificial intelligence technologies. The company's website says that it has created a database based on AI that provides rich and relevant information about millions of people and companies, which allows finding the right employees and establishing stronger relationships.
Cisco intends to implement the development of Accompany in its products for collaboration. For example, to provide the profile data of a particular user or company on Webex webinars. The transaction value is 270 million dollars. It is expected that the transaction will be closed in the fourth quarter of this year.

For decades, the founder of the company Amazon has been promoting one mantra "Day 1". It means that the company never ceases to operate as a start-up, despite 560 thousand employees. What other secret tools does Bezos use?

The three main strategies that the head of Amazon uses to achieve success, described Entrepreneur.
Standards are contagious
Bezos argues that high standards are the result of proper training, and not the internal mood of employees. "Bring a new person to a team that has high standards, and it adapts quickly, at the same time, the opposite is true," Jeff says.
If the company has low standards, the new employee, even involuntarily, drops to their level. In addition, Bezos says that one should not expect to automatically transfer high standards from one area to another - it is important for people to open growth zones. Try to make a list of your duties, and then ask trusted colleagues to tell you which duties are your strongest points. If some things from the list are not named, it is useful to think about how you can improve your personal standards in these areas.
Expectations should be clear and realistic
If you want to improve your standards in a certain field, the first thing you need to do is determine what kind of quality you need in a particular area. And the second is to set realistic expectations for yourself or your team to clearly understand how much effort will be required to achieve this level of quality.
For example, the following tradition of the company. At meetings in Amazon, PowerPoint presentations are never used. Instead, teams write explanatory notes for six pages so that everyone else can prepare for the meeting. Bezos says that the quality of these notes is very different, because the authors do not always recognize the amount of work required to achieve high standards.
"They mistakenly believe that a qualitative explanatory note can be written in a day or two or even a few hours, when in fact it can take a week or more!" Says Bezos.
Feedback from customers is more important than the actions of competitors
Regardless of whether you are selling a product or service, you need to be sure that you do not lose touch with the people for whom you work. And it does not depend on the position that you occupy in the company.
Bezos says he continues to read emails from his public mailbox (jeff@amazon.com) to keep his hand on the pulse and understand what is happening to Amazon customers. The head of the company is convinced that focusing on feedback from customers is much more important for success than tracking what competitors do. He often compares customer feedback with the data that employees give him to see where they converge, and in which areas they differ.

China became the first country where its scientists created a textbook for schoolchildren, with the help of which they will be able to learn the possibilities of both artificial intelligence and ways to create it. It was already presented by specialists working at the Shanghai University.
This textbook will be designed for those who attend the middle and upper classes. He will be the first of its kind. This training manual will be sent to 40 schools in China, where it is planned to test this subject.
As noted, the first program to study the foundations of the possibilities of artificial intelligence, will study the students of the Shanghai Secondary School, which supplies graduates for the transport university.
Some features of the manual from other publications are noted. It is believed by the developers to be able to use the possibilities not only of the hands and eyes, but also the brain of those who will be trained on it.
Immediately after studying the theoretical material, it is planned to conduct practical exercises that will actually consolidate the information read.
