Brave Software, maker of a privacy-focused browser, said Wednesday that its burgeoning search service exited beta testing while its Goggles search customization system entered beta testing.

Brave Search, which debuted a year ago, has apparently received 2.5 billion search queries since then and, based on current monthly totals, is expected to handle twice that over the next year. The search service is available in the Brave browser and in other browsers by visiting search.brave.com.

“Since launching a year ago, Brave Search has prioritized independence and innovation to give users the privacy they deserve,” wrote Josep Pujol, head of research at Brave. “The web is changing, and our incredible growth shows there’s a demand for a new player that puts users first.”

According to Brave, it took Google more than a year to reach 2.5 billion searches and it took DuckDuckGo, which relies on Microsoft’s Bing search engine, more than four years to reach a volume of similar search.

Brave, who now claims more … than 59 million monthly active users, has chosen to compete with Google via a service with a confusing name: Goggles. In an interview with The register last year, co-founder and CEO Brendan Eich explained that Goggles is not an attempt to match Google’s vast search index. Rather, it is an effort to innovate in an environment that Google would have monopolized.

Dive into privacy

Goggles, accessible in a tab below the search.brave.com input box on the results page, offers browser users the ability to redefine the relevance of search results. Or more simply, it allows users to select how individual sites are enhanced or reduced in search results. You prefer The register appear higher in your search results? You can create a mask to do this.

Brave imposes its own ranking on search results for a given query. And with Goggles, Brave users – individually or in groups – can create their own private or public adjustments to the default order.

Brave says this will allow users to counter any bias built into its search results, but a likely consequence is that users or user groups will be able to craft rules that apply a different bias. For example, two of the eight “popular glasses” that have appeared in Brave right now include “Left sources“, which favors news sources associated with leftist politics, and”good sources“, which favors news sources associated with right-wing politics.

Another potential use of Goggles is to downgrade or exclude websites that post clickbait or unwanted content. For example, one of the current “popular glasses” is “Removal of copierswhich eliminates a lot of domains that copy content from more popular sources like Stack Overflow. Anyone who’s recently entered programming-oriented queries is likely to appreciate a way to deal with response spam sites.

The syntax for defining a Goggles file (the domain-specific language) is simple. It consists of four mandatory metadata lines in a text file with a .goggle file type identifier:

! name: The Goggle's name 
! description: What the Goggle does 
! public: true or false 
! author: Your name

And allows additional fields like:

! homepage: the URL displayed on your Goggle's profile. 
! issues: the URL where users can report issues for your Goggle. 
! transferred_to: so ownership of a Goggle can be transferred. 
! avatar: a valid HEX color code for your Goggle. 
! license: the license governing a given Goggle.

The functional part of a Google Goggles file consists of action definitions, through which websites can have their rankings improved, downgraded or removed, as shown in the Documentation:

For instance:

$boost=4,site=theregister.com

There is also support for wildcards and basic pattern matching. Do .google files visible to Brave, users simply need to store them on a supported hosting site: gist.github.com, github.comWhere gitlab.com. And then they can submit them to Brave. Google Goggles files are limited to 2MB, cannot contain more than 10,000 instructions, and individual instructions cannot contain more than 500 characters, two wildcards

characters or two caret (^) characters. “A Goggle is a URL-addressed file of Adblock filter syntax to re-rank the index based on your needs or those of your community,” Eich explained.by Twitter

. Content blocking browser extensions work similarly to Goggles, relying on variousfilter lists

, like EasyList, which individuals and groups maintain to block nasty ads, trackers, and more. While these extensions focus on removing both unwanted content and hostile scripts – and may do a better job with more sophisticated pattern matching – Goggles is optimized for reordering search results in addition to hiding unwanted websites.

“Search engines that rely too heavily or exclusively on Big Tech are subject to their censorship, bias, and editorial decisions,” Brave says. “The web needs multiple search providers – without choice, there is no freedom.”

To what extent are the staff too personal?

Google offers inferred search personalization by collecting information about users and using what it knows to determine how sites rank in search results.

Google Goggles opts for declarative search personalization; it allows people to reclassify the web based on their own biases, for better or for worse. How many people will bother to do this remains to be seen – maintaining a long list of reclassification actions can result in a heavier management overhead than most would like. If a particular audience Goggle sees widespread adoption, it could in theory change the information landscape for certain topics. Given the recent efforts of at least a dozen states ban schools

to discuss gender identity and sexual orientation, efforts to promote compliance through technical interventions could attract groups of censors when legal restrictions are under legal challenge.

But for that to become a realistic concern, Brave would have to match the market dominance of companies like Google, Meta’s Facebook, Microsoft, and Twitter that are currently shaping public perception through search and social media.

Until then, Goggles provides a way to see the web on your own terms rather than someone else’s. ®

New York, June 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reportlinker.com announces the publication of the report “Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Drug Discovery Market Report 2022-2032” – https://www. reportlinker.com/p06288090/?utm_source=GNW

Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Drug Discovery Market Report 2022-2032: This report will prove invaluable to large companies striving to create new pockets of revenue if they want to better understand the industry and its underlying dynamics. It will be useful for businesses that want to expand into different industries or expand their existing operations into a new region.

Growing adoption of cloud-based applications and services is driving the market

Artificial intelligence (AI) is defined as a machine that uses modern technology to perform tasks similar to those performed by the human mind. The main goal of drug discovery research is to find drugs that can help in the prevention or treatment of specific diseases. Difficulties in examining, obtaining, and using data to solve difficult medical problems have fueled the demand for artificial intelligence (AI) in the drug discovery industry. The Artificial Intelligence in Drug Development market is split into supply, technology, type, applications, and region. The growing number of cross-industry collaborations and partnerships, the growing need to control drug discovery and development costs and reduce the overall time spent on this process, the growing adoption of cloud-based applications and services and the impending expiration of blockbuster drug patents are all driving artificial intelligence in the drug discovery market. On the other hand, market expansion is hampered by a lack of data sets in the field of drug discovery and an insufficient supply of skilled workers.

Lack of data is a recurring problem in all industries implementing AI

Data scarcity is a recurring problem in all industries that deploy AI. A standard biological survey requires a minimum of five samples to be legitimate. Meanwhile, to work well, most machine learning algorithms need to be trained on hundreds of thousands of data points or samples. This is why obtaining high-quality health data is essential, which has proven increasingly difficult over time. The challenge is due to disorganized and fragmented health data scattered across many data platforms and organizations. Patient insurance and healthcare providers change too frequently, making data collection difficult.

Monitoring student activity online has become a hot issue for districts, schools, and parents in the digital age, where information is often freely and copiously shared through email, social media, and other channels. In response to these trends, the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT), a nonprofit organization that works to shape technology policy and architecture with a focus on democracy and the rights of the individual, says that there has been widespread adoption of software that monitors students in K-12 schools nationwide.

With these tools, schools can filter web content; monitor student search engine queries and browsing history; view student emails, messages and social media content; and/or view their screens in real time.

“Fueled in part by pandemic-era remote learning needs, schools have embraced this technology in an effort to measure and improve student engagement and keep students safe online. “, underlines the CDT in a research report it released student activity monitoring software last year. The report, based on surveys of students, parents and teachers as well as interviews with school district staff, raises critical red flags for student fairness and privacy among these tools, despite their popularity.

Widespread use of monitoring

According to the CDT report, 81% of teachers who responded to the survey say their schools use student activity monitoring software and of those teachers, one in four say the monitoring is limited to class hours. According to CDT senior policy adviser Cody Venzke, widespread surveillance can have a disproportionate impact on students from low-income families who rely on school-provided devices, as these devices typically track student activity more deeply than personal devices. Joined by CDT Research Director DeVan Hankerson Madrigal and Boulder Valley School District IT Director Andrew Moore, Venzke discussed this and other issues with monitoring student activity during a recent session of CoSN conference.

Venzke says the session summarized recent findings from CDT research, which focused on “a better understanding of the harms that can result from schools monitoring student activity online.” Madrigal led the research project and interviewed many school IT leaders for it.

“The gist of the presentation highlighted that student activity monitoring is being rolled out widely in school districts across this country,” Venzke explains, “and can have a negative impact on student well-being. students, despite the fact that it could be implemented for laudable reasons.

For example, CDT research shows that surveillance can have what Venzke calls a “chilling impact” on students who won’t share their true thoughts or feelings online if they know they’re being watched. It also raises potential concerns that data collected through activity tracking will be used out of context.

For example, students struggling with mental health issues may be deterred from seeking help online, and LGBTQ+ students may not seek out supportive communities if they know what they do online is being monitored. . Similarly, although many school IT officials told CDT they use the technology to protect student safety, teachers and parents interviewed by CDT said their schools also use the data for discipline, reporting specific behaviors as of concern.

According to Venzke, “Some of the safety benefits purported to come from this technology may actually be outweighed by the effects it has on student well-being and mental health,” Venzke says.

In interviews, Venzke says, some schools say they use these tools to comply with laws, such as the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA). “A school IT manager told us that he ‘needed a lot of granular control‘ to be able to ‘comply with CIPA,’ but CIPA itself states that ‘nothing in the law should be construed as requiring the tracking of internet usage by any identifiable minor or adult user. says Venzke: “We ultimately found that the motivations of schools to implement this monitoring were not necessarily justified when reasons of legal compliance may not be imposed by the cited laws. »

Subject to two layers of supervision

Madrigal says schools may also disproportionately monitor or monitor students from low-income families, who rely on school-owned devices. These students may be subject to device-specific monitoring as well as any additional monitoring software the school “runs on the device itself,” Madrigal says. “That’s two levels of scrutiny that a student who might not be able to afford their own device could be subjected to.”

For example, all students in a school can see their documents, which are stored in the school’s cloud storage, scanned for keywords, including documents such as private journals. Students who rely on school-provided devices may be subject to additional monitoring that students using their own devices may not encounter, including school officials monitoring their screens, open apps, or apps. browsing history 24/7.

When monitored, students can also lose faith in the very tools used to bridge the digital divide, which can negatively impact fairness.

“It has long been demonstrated that historically marginalized groups of students have [fewer] educational opportunities than their peers,” says Madrigal. “These disparities in opportunity can be compounded by the technologies that schools use, not only due to a lack of access, but also by overwhelming these students with surveillance technology when that access is provided.”

Only during school hours

With 30,000 students in 55 schools, the Boulder Valley School District is providing Chromebooks to all students in grades 6 through 12 in exchange for “modest technical fees,” according to Moore, those eligible for a free or reduced lunch receiving their devices and Internet access (as long as they live within three miles of a school) for free. “It ensured that each student had a device and that all of those devices were the same,” he says. When the pandemic hit, the district rolled out the IT Prime program, which ensured students of all grades had Chromebooks.

Since 2017, the district has used classroom monitoring software GoGuardian, which provides a Chromebook web filter that allows teachers to “take control of student devices by locking down the sites they can visit,” Moore says. This feature is only enabled during the school day and prevents teachers from monitoring student activity outside of these hours.

“We feel that this is more the responsibility of a parent or guardian, and that too [straddles] that fine line between what students do outside of work hours,” Moore says. “Whether someone watching a movie on Netflix is ​​a good thing or a bad thing depends on your perspective, but it’s really not within the purview of the school district to say a thumbs up or a thumbs up. down to what you do during off-peak hours.”

For districts that may struggle to keep students safe while respecting their online privacy and supporting fairness, Moore recommends experimenting with different options and not giving up after hitting a wall. “It’s easy to get frustrated when you don’t get it every time,” he says, advising districts to explore new tools if the ones they’re using aren’t working for them.

Moore also warns districts not to lose sight of the fact that all students deserve an equitable opportunity to learn. “As school districts, if we can provide that, we’ll put all of our students on the right path to success in life,” Moore says. “But if we give up on that and just say ‘this problem is too hard to solve’ or ‘we don’t have the resources’, we’re doing our society as a whole a disservice by not giving everyone a chance. fair to learn.”

Lessons learned

Amelia Vance, founder and president of Public Interest Privacy Consulting, worries about the lack of trust between schools and families and says increased surveillance of students could widen that gap. “We see a lot of skepticism about how schools select programs, teach and make decisions about student safety and rights,” Vance says.

For example, asking students to write personal essays or complete worksheets for guidance counselors often leads to schools collecting very sensitive data. Parents are increasingly wary of this practice.

“Based on the flood of journalism over the past two years, we’ve seen a pushback as parents learn more about [activity monitoring] software,” says Vance. “That’s something that could further increase that lack of trust and could undermine oversight which in some cases could be very helpful or legally required.”

Districts also tend to collect and store too much sensitive data that can be used to build a very detailed and intimate profile of “everything children do that can be retained for far longer than it should,” explains Vance. This data could be subject to a data breach.

In an effort to do what’s best for their students, many schools overlook the pitfalls of collecting, storing, and/or analyzing all of this data. Vance says a better approach is to set a record retention limit, then periodically delete the associated data. She also warns districts to be wary of software that claims to be able to identify threats, potential mental health issues and other red flags.

RANDOLPH – Randolph High School recently decided to offer a Computer Numerical Control Technology course to its students and invested in a CNC machine which is a computerized manufacturing process where pre-programmed software and codes control the movement of equipment of production.

“Investing and updating our carpentry shop to include a CNC has changed the perspective of students as well as the content of our courses”, said Jessie Perison, a teacher at Randolph High School. “Students are inspired and challenged to push the boundaries of design. The machine introduced students to material properties, machining processes, programming, tolerances, and all of the manufacturing trades. The transformation and confidence of students since the purchase of the CNC is unprecedented. In the past, when our students visited local factories, students were intimidated by CNC manufacturing and programming. However, when we visited Stuart Tool and Die this year, the students discussed with the engineers the design software, the number of axes, the tolerances and the specific types of equipment.

Kaine Kelly, district superintendent, said the industrial-grade CNC router will provide students with real-world experience that will help them meet the region’s skilled labor needs and possibly lead them into career paths. that they had not considered before.

“Randolph Central School District is committed to providing our children with experiences that will help them develop the skills they will need to compete in the 21st century global workplace. This program goes beyond classroom instruction as we continuously work to partner with local industry to provide our students with school-to-work opportunities at all levels,” said Kelly. “STEAM-based learning gives students tools and methods to explore creative new ways to solve problems, display data, innovate, and connect multiple domains. This teaches them to think outside the box! The point of STEAM is to inspire research and curiosity; to enable students to ask challenging questions that foster creativity and exploration, and to connect their problem solving to real-world solutions. With STEAM, no subject, or student, is left out. Our students learn by doing. »

“Not only does the CNC Router give students experience they can use in industry, it allows them to think outside the box when it comes to designing and planning a project,” said Jason Halpainy, principal of Randolph High School. “Our students continue to push themselves and our staff to be creative and problem solvers.

AUSTIN, Texas — The Continuous Delivery Foundation named a new CEO last week, with a charter to grow the still-mature community and set it apart from its better-known Linux Foundation sibling, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

After 16 years as an engineer at Swedish telecommunications service provider Ericsson, and well over a decade as a Linux Foundation and Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) contributor, Fatih Degirmenci stepped in to take on this role. He replaced Tracy Miranda, head of open source at Chainguard, who served as executive director of CDF from September 2020 to January 2022. Degirmenci’s official start date was June 1.

On the sixth day of his term – the fourth day if you don’t count the weekends – Degirmenci sat down at the cdCon conference to discuss what made him take this step, what lies ahead for the CDF , which distinguishes it from Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) and fragmentation of the CI/CD pipeline.

What prompted you to take over the management of CDF?

Fatih Degirmenci

Fatih Degirmenci: I just joined as general manager of CDF, but I am not new to this community. Since 2014, I contribute to different Linux Foundation projects. In March 2019, CD Foundation was announced at the Linux Summit in Half Moon Bay. I was there, on the spot, and I went to the first public meeting of the CD Foundation.

At first I was a little hesitant [about becoming the general manager of CDF] because I’m an engineer, and being a general manager means a change of mentality. But I have been contributing to this community for years, I believe in this community and I can help this community by bringing their challenges and ideas to the board and supporting our community investments. I come from the community, and all these people know me, and I know them and I have worked with them a lot. I trust the community, and they trust me too.

I felt the need to make sure people and communities involved in supply chain security don’t lack CI/CD because CI/CD is the backbone of any supply chain .

Fatih DegirmenciManaging Director, CD Foundation

I started contributing to the CDF as a member of the oversight committee. Then we formed a special interest group [SIG] on interoperability, because that’s something that we as a community had to address – the CI/CD ecosystem is kind of fragmented. There are many interesting technologies, but little emphasis has been placed on how these different technologies might work with each other. Large organizations tend to have more than one CI/CD technology, and these organizations must integrate these tools themselves. Communities do their best, but sometimes things don’t work as expected and onboarding is expensive. If a project makes a change that is not backward compatible, it breaks your integration. It gave us the opportunity to talk about how we can move from integration to interoperability, and to focus on how we pass data between different systems. So from this group from 2020 we have developed a new GIS Eventswho released a project in May called CDEvents.

Then I moved into the field of software supply chain, as I have a background in security, and felt the need to ensure that the people and communities involved in supply chain security there’s no shortage of CI/CD, because CI/CD is the backbone of any supply chain – it orchestrates all these different activities like code commits, security scans, deployments, rollbacks – and The Software Supply Chain Special Interest Group was formed around February of this year. We’ve also been working on this for years in the interoperability GIS, around metadata synthesis and policy-based content delivery pipelines, but we didn’t explicitly call it blockchain security. supply because it was not called by that name.

One question we’ve heard people ask is why there’s a separate CDF – why isn’t it part of the CNCF?

Degirmenci: CNCF focuses on everything cloud-native, but things like continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment are so critical, and they need to be worked on in a more focused way. If you look at the CNCF landscape, you have a lot of great projects, and it can be difficult for the CI/CD communities to make themselves visible there. But if we have these projects under a separate foundation, it will help position these projects and broaden the subject of CI/CD more prominently, without drowning in one conversation among many.

Fatih Degirmenci on stage at cdCon 2022
Fatih Degirmenci, CEO of the New CD Foundation, gives a keynote presentation at cdCon 2022 in Austin, Texas.

If you look at different industries, like web scale, healthcare, finance, telecom, some of them have already figured out cloud native, but some of them are still on their way to public cloud. An additional answer to why there is a separate CDF is that CDF has all these different companies, like AWS and Netflix from web scale, Fidelity from finance, Huawei from telecom, participating in these conversations , allowing for cross-pollination between these different industries. .

If we go back to the supply chain – in the EU you have GDPR, but you may have difficulty managing the same pipelines in different regions because you operate in these highly distributed and highly regulated environments. You must have policies enforcing certain rules and regulations. When you come up with a new product, you may be collecting user data, which may be against GDPR, and it would be a good contribution to conversations about why certain industries are lagging and how the community might help update these things.

Again, this comes back to how we can have a policy framework that actually gives you that much control. That’s how I see this cross-pollination between industries and projects – people come together in this open forum where everyone can talk about their challenges and use cases.

Is this type of policy framework being developed in CDF’s Software Supply Chain MIS?

Degirmenci: There are different policy projects like Open Policy Agent and Kyverno, and one of the things that we decided in the GIS software supply chain is not to create everything ourselves, but just to build things in more of what is available. We came across the CNCF [security] Supply Chain Security Best Practices White Paper from the Technical Advisory Group, and based on that white paper, Citi created something called the Secure Software Factory Reference Implementation. This reference implementation has a political aspect, so we said, “Let’s start talking to OpenSSF contributors and see how we can collaborate on it, take their reference implementation and try it out.” CDF has all of these CI/CD practitioners, as well as maintainers of the most widely used projects like Jenkins, Spinnaker, and Tekton. And if we could look at these things from our point of view, it could make things even better, instead of creating our own things and nobody cares.

One of the first things I need to do in my new job is to find resources to generate a Secure Software Factory policy prototype and bring in members of the community who are familiar with the deployment. Then they can go dig into places, try to change things, bring in new components, or bring in new pipeline stages. Michael Lieberman of [OpenSSF] join our meeting. We have ongoing conversations with him to help work closely together. Since the GIS is very new and the SSF has changed its name [to FRSCA], we said, ‘Let’s take it easy while this project works out its logistics.’ But we should soon start to see collaboration around this within the GIS software supply chain and the SSF/FRSCA project.

Who is on board with CDEvents?

Degirmenci: We have contributors from Tekton, which is a CDF project, and from Keptn. The Keptn project falls under the CNCF; they have an event-driven control plane for continuous delivery, but they focus on deployment and operational aspects. CDEvents tries to get the entire CI/CD [process]the complete flow from code commit until your container image is running in production. [Mauricio Salatino, a staff engineer at VMware] brought us the first proof of concept using Tekton and Keptn, made the first prototypes around a Go SDK, and he’s working to bring Knative. And there’s another workflow going on to bring Spinnaker [via] a Java SDK for CDEvents which will be developed and available on GitHub.

During Google Summer of Code last year, the CDF community proposed a project to create a plugin to bring CloudEvents to Jenkins, since CDEvents is based on CloudEvents, and the CDEvents specification was not yet available. So Jenkins was the first community to try this event-based approach using CloudEvents, which will make it easier to create a CDEvents-based plugin. And there are contributors from other projects that aren’t part of the CNCF or the CDF, like an Ericsson project called Eiffel.

Why is event-driven architecture a good way to approach interoperability?

Degirmenci: All of the technologies used in building CI/CD pipelines use the concept of distributed systems — one tool can do something like build artifacts, another tool can run tests; we have a CI/CD choreographer or orchestrator sitting on top of it, and the build tool and the test tool don’t necessarily need to know of the other’s existence. But integration requires organizations to make all of these things aware of each other. With events, these technologies do what they do best without knowing the existence of other systems. It’s not new, but applying it in the CI/CD context is new. The event-driven approach helps you connect new tools to a pipeline without having to touch the rest of your other tools.

HELSINKI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Rightware today announced that global icon Maserati has used its Kanzi user interface (UI) toolchain to create the primary human-machine interface (HMI) for its 2023 Grecale compact luxury SUV. Kanzi software powers the graphics for the digital instrument cluster and Heads-Up Display (HUD).

Kanzi enabled a highly productive process for creative design and software engineering, accelerating development of the Grecale HMI while bringing significant cost savings to the complex project, resulting in a major leap forward for the driving experience .

“To have the premium, performance-driven brand Maserati choose Kanzi to develop its first digital instrument cluster is an honor,” said Freddie Geier, CEO of Rightware. “Brand identity is at the heart of the business, and Kanzi enabled his team to design and implement a signature user interface true to the Maserati lineage.”

First Maseratis

Not only is the Grecale the brand’s first vehicle with a fully digital instrument cluster, it’s also the company’s first production vehicle with in-house designed on-screen graphics. The Maserati Innovation Lab in Modena implemented a design carried out by the Style Center in Turin.

In the past, Maserati provided high-level user interface concepts to its HMI supplier, who in turn handled the design and implementation. Using Kanzi, a small team of Maserati designers and engineers were able to take the instrument cluster and HUD from initial design concepts to mass production in just under two years.

The result is a content-rich digital cockpit that retains the classic Maserati look. Kanzi enabled the team to deliver a unique user interface with rich 3D graphics in the instrument cluster without losing the look of the brand’s traditional mechanical gauges.

Kanzi Benefits

With Kanzi, Maserati had full control of the user experience and graphic visualization, from prototype to production. Rapid prototyping in Kanzi Studio gave the team the flexibility to iterate the design often throughout the process. With traditional tools and workflows, such intensive iteration tends to lead to long delays.

User interface design has traditionally taken at least three years. Going from inception of design to production in less than two years is a major achievement. Beyond shortening the development cycle, Kanzi has enabled Maserati to take advantage of cutting-edge graphics to create a contemporary and unique user experience.

Maserati plans to offer the Grecale with both traditional and hybrid powertrains, and possibly an all-electric version. Each variant will require unique information to display on digital screens while maintaining the look and feel of the model family. Leveraging Kanzi’s advanced capabilities, Maserati can easily manage user interface variations within a single project, maximizing reuse for a consistent brand identity.

According to a report by The New York Times. Sources familiar with the matter told the Time that Jon Favreau is just one of the directors involved – he was reportedly tasked with delivering a mixed reality experience based on prehistoric planetthe dinosaur-filled Apple TV Plus series he produced.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like we’ll be able to immerse ourselves in a jurassic park-like landscape anytime soon. According to a previous report by Bloombergthe NYT says Apple’s headphones may not launch until 2023 due to battery life and performance issues. That said, its development has not been without some turbulence — the NYT reports that some employees have also left the company due to the implications the headset may have on how “people interact with each other.”

The mixed reality device may not make an appearance at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on Monday either, as Apple may focus on software instead. Sources told the NYT that Apple is preparing to introduce a toolkit allowing developers to add camera and voice functionality to their apps, enabling hands-free control before the arrival of the headset.

Apple has yet to confirm the existence of the headset, but the device will likely be able to offer both immersive virtual reality experiences, as well as virtual overlays designed to look like they’re part of the real world. Various leaks and rumors also gave us plenty to chew on, ranging from its untethered form factor to its “Mac-level” processing power.

But there have been indications that Apple may be readying the device for an official announcement, although that may not happen at WWDC. There’s the RealityOS name spotted in a trademark filing for “portable hardware”, which is presumably the operating system the headset will use. And, last month, Apple’s board could have tried the mixed reality headset for themselves.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur the contributors are theirs.

A 2021 Bain & Co. investigation found that 92% of global B2B buyers prefer virtual sales interactions – up 17 percentage points from its May 2020 survey. Additionally, 79% of salespeople embrace the effectiveness of virtual sales, up from 54% in 2020.

The data is not surprising. Virtual sales are often profitable and allow more meetings with prospects. However, flexibility or cost effectiveness does not necessarily mean that virtual communication is effective.

What makes communication effective? As a cognitive neuroscientist, I suggest looking at communication effectiveness through the lens of what your audience remembers after your interaction. After all, your audience will make decisions in your favor based on what they remember, not what they forget.

Since memory influences decisions, you have to ask yourself: what do I want my audience to remember? This question is more complex than it seems at first glance, because memory is multifaceted. There are several ways to make something memorable. In this article, you’ll see a framework for creating memorable messages that influence decisions.

When you present something to an audience, like your value proposition, it can form two types of memories: verbatim and gist. Textual memories faithfully record the superficial details of an experience, while essential memories store the general themes or meaning of the content.

Think of textual and essential memories as part of a continuum bounded by specificity. This continuum helps you determine whether an audience should remember exactly what did you say or kind of What you said. Here’s how to use verbatim-gist briefs to your advantage during your next sales pitch, so you can better control what listeners remember:

1. Clarify the level of specificity

In a recent study in neuroscience we conducted in our lab, we monitored the brain’s reaction to a sales pitch on a software application that helps salespeople track their quotas. We wanted participants to remember two phrases: “Aligning business goals with seller goals” and “Incentivizing the right to sell more.”

Two days later, when asked what message they remembered, people said things like, “How to align company goals with employee goals by compensating employees the right way.” “Make sure your salespeople’s goals are aligned with yours so you can motivate them to sell more” and “This software gives companies and their sales staff a new way to track compensation and drive sales .”

Much of the original sentence structure has been lost (this is to be expected), but some of the flagged words matched our intent (“align”, “goals”, “sell more”). The gist was accurate, even though “sell more” became “increase sales”, for example.

With your messages, clarify the specificity of the memories you want others to take away. Should people walk away with a word-for-word message, or is the gist enough? I recommend striving for more specificity (near verbatim) about your main message or key takeaways, especially if you’re operating in a highly competitive space. The verbatim will serve your cause, because they are precise, and they will help you to differentiate yourself from your competitors. Aim for the precise essential concerning your points of support.

How to achieve a balance between the essential and the verbatim? Ask yourself these two questions: “If I asked my audience what they remember in 48 hours, what would I be satisfied to hear?” and “How accurately should they remember my main message?” These questions will instill discipline in your thinking because they will reveal whether you know the most important takeaways. It will also help you measure how closely the memories your audience brings back match your ideal messages. As a result, you will know what to adjust in your content.

2. Achieving Verbatim Through Repetition

Repetition is an intuitive guideline when it comes to memory, because what is reinforced is more likely to stick.

Despite this, professionals avoid repetition for several reasons: they believe that repetitive messages seem too corrective or that their audience can hear something once and remember it later. If you only show or say something once (unless it has a shocking quality), it’s unlikely to stick. People forget quickly, so if you want them to remember your message verbatim, you need to repeat it.

In a workshop I teach on the neuroscience of being memorable, for example, the message I want people to remember is “Control your 10%.” I frequently remind participants that I would like them to remember this statement verbatim, and I also state the reason why: when you control what people remember, you improve your persuasiveness. In our sales presentation researchwe noticed that returning to the same message once a minute gives you verbatim memory control.

Once you have found the verbatim you want others to remember, repeat it consistently without paraphrasing. Repetition works well when accompanied by consistency, because the brain tends to censor incoherent information. In addition, repeated statements are more frequently judged to be true.

Although verbatim and gist are processed in parallel, gist is processed quickly, while verbatim processing takes longer (especially with complex information). Complex visual content, for example, requires multiple fixations to be fully encoded due to the small portion of the image that falls on the fovea (the center of the eye’s field of vision) at any given time.

Moreover, the number of visual fixations is correlated with memory for visual scenes, and prolonged viewing leads to a more detailed representation of a scene. So when repeating your main messages, especially if they are complex, don’t rush, give people plenty of time to process the information.

3. Keeps mostly accurate

The problem with forgettable content isn’t just in how people encode, store, and retrieve memories, but also in the accuracy of those memories. Why are memories generally imperfect and unreliable? Do humans fundamentally suffer from dysfunctional cognitive processing?

Although this is true in some cases (e.g. frontal lobe damage, extreme stress, temporal lobe damage), most scientists agree that distortions in human memory are not a sign of a impaired cognitive processing, but rather adaptive processing.

Memories are often distorted when people encounter things that are perceptually or conceptually related. If you see words like “candy, sugar, taste, tooth”, it’s easy to think later that you’ve also seen the word “sweet”. This is adaptive, as the generation of associations is important for conserving cognitive energy and is an essential part of convergent thinking and creativity.

People also distort memories due to social conformity. Sometimes people change their memories when told what others remembered. Given this, how can you ensure that audiences not only get the gist, but exact the essential, especially when the content is complex?

First, help the audience frequently synthesize complex meanings and provide abstract interpretations. This allows your prospects to see things as you see them. At regular intervals, check understanding with questions such as, “What do you think of all this?” Clarify again if people have misunderstood.

Second, consider the lead time and amount of exposure. If you expect someone to make a decision weeks after you met, and they’ve only been exposed to your information once and briefly, jog their memory. Do it through a proposal that matches the presentation you made weeks ago or schedule a new meeting. This reinforces the main point, reminds the audience of your textual differentiator, and improves accuracy.

4. Question the expertise of experts

As a professional, you may prefer to work with experts because they understand the content better, have more interesting questions, and can even help you. you see things differently. However, as people develop and gain experience, they are more likely to make inferences that go beyond surface detail – and are more likely to confuse inferences with memory.

Even higher intelligence has been associated with higher levels of gist-based but false memory! When it comes to processing information, remembering it, and making decisions, experts rely on meaningful and qualitative distinctions between general parts of content rather than precise details.

How to counter the danger of inaccurate expert reports? Ask them to reflect on their judgments and decisions so they can notice similarities between the documents or inconsistencies between the answers. This is useful because people generally try to maintain consistency between decisions by monitoring their responses and inhibiting those that seem inconsistent, regardless of their actual preferences.

One way to know if hunches or reasoning based on the essential is correct is to ask yourself if a specific area has a lot of regularities, if you have a lot of practice in it, and you generally receive immediate feedback on the relevance of decisions.

A final note on the verbatim-gist continuum: verbatim memories are more common in young adults, while gist is more typical in older people. Experimental manipulations that induce text processing make adults behave as if they were younger. By balancing word for word and substance with the help of these guidelines, you will not only enable others to remember what is important, but you will also give them a precious gift: to feel younger.
