Die Geschichte hinter YouTube

Es gibt über 400 Tweets mit einem YouTube-Link jede Minute auf Twitter; Facebook hat Videos, die fast 150 Jahre wert sind. YouTube ist der erste Ort, an dem weltweit jeder nach Videos sucht. Lassen Sie uns ein wenig hinter den Anfängen dieser spielverändernden Video-Sharing-Website herausfinden.
Chad Hurley, Jawed Karim und Steve Chen sind die Namen, die Sie sich merken müssen, wenn Sie mehr Infos hier über YouTube, weil sie die Gründer dieser Website mit Sitz in Kalifornien sind. Diese ehemaligen Mitarbeiter von PayPal haben diese Website im Februar 2005 erstellt und den Domain-Namen www.youtube.com am Valentinstag registriert, sondern erst im November 2005 gestartet. Angesichts seines immensen Potenzials kaufte Google ihn 2006 für 1,65 Milliarden Dollar.

YouTube begann ursprünglich nicht als eine Video-Sharing-Website, sondern sollte eine Dating-Website in den Zeilen von Hot or Not sein. Es sollte “Tune In, Hook Up” heißen. Die Grundidee war, dass Nutzer ihre eigenen Videos posten und andere entscheiden lassen, ob sie “hook Up” wollen. Doch es wurde schließlich auf die lange Bank geschoben.
Was eigentlich zu YouTube geführt hat, so wie wir es kennen, war zuerst die Unfähigkeit von Tschad und Hurley, Dinner-Videos hochzuladen, die sie in einer Wohnung gedreht haben, und zweitens Karim Enttäuschung darüber, dass sie Janet Jacksons Kleidervideos nirgendwo gefunden haben.

Das erste Video, das jemals auf YouTube gepostet wurde, war das von Jawed Karim im Zoo von San Diego vor einem Elefanten. Die Firma hat den Beta-Test im Mai 2005 der Öffentlichkeit unterzogen. Und das allererste Video, das eine Million Views erreichte, war das von Ronaldinho in einer Nike-Werbung, die seinen Ball jonglierte.
Als Google diesen massiven Erfolg der Website sah, kaufte sie und startete 2007 das “YouTube Partner Program”, das es jedem, der Inhalte geteilt hat, ermöglichte, Ruhm zu erlangen, wenn ihre Videos gemocht wurden.…

The Robots Are Coming – Will They Really Take All Our Jobs?

There are many who feel that the bot era is not far away. With artificial intelligence systems getting better at mimicking human decision-making processes, with the automation taking over several processes in the workflow, there is one question in everyone’s mind – ‘Will the bots take over our jobs?’

It is tricky to answer the question without giving a little introduction to what artificial intelligence or the use of bots is all about. When we talk about bots they are not always human-like structures mechanized to move around and perform several activities. Bots are pieces of code that can be written in different programming languages so as to perform a given task – take an input, process the information based on the defined set of rules and give an output. This type of computation is upgraded with practical features like self-learning capacities to improve the decision-making process, natural language processing abilities to understand human language better and to give better responses and other such sophistication that make the bot more convenient to use.

Bots can allow employees to concentrate on tasks that add value

The whole purpose of developing bots is to automate the tasks that take time. And there are strenuous redundant tasks especially for businesses like van leasing companies where the smallest error can lead to major problems. Such activities can all be automated with the help of bots. So the employees can leave out the mundane roles and take up tasks that actually help them in additional value to the company and improve their career.

Bots can create new roles

While several jobs might be obsolete after bots take them over, there would be plenty of new opportunities that come up. The transition time might be a tough phase to cross but this can be seen as a chance to get your skill set updated so as to be ready for better jobs.…
