Suggested March 2024 Foursquare Updated Ahead Of Swarm App Launch

Foursquare, the popular location-based social platform, is set to release a brand new Swarm app today which will “help people keep up and meet up with their friends”.

As a result, the existing free iOS client has just been updated with some changes you should know about. Announced two weeks ago, Swarm combines new mayorships, introduces stickers, offers detailed insights about your life and much more.

If you have Swarm installed, the new Foursquare 7.0.8 update includes a peek at some of the upcoming changes to Foursquare ahead of a major search-focused revamp due this summer…

iTunes release notes for Foursquare 7.0.8 mention no other changes aside from the aforementioned “upcoming changes to Foursquare” ahead of Swarm launch. If you haven’t installed Swarm yet, this Foursquare update will not detail the changes.

Specifically, there are no more ousting of mayors in the Foursquare app although it will continue to show the mayor as of today, frozen in place. Your profile will still display the list of proud mayorships you hold but, again, ousting of mayors will no longer be possible.

Swarm introduces a Mayors 2.0 feature based on the same 60-day historical window like the Foursquare app. If you’re mayor of a place where you and your friends go now, you’ll also be mayor amongst your friends in the Swarm app. As for your earned badges, they’re still available in your Foursquare trophy case.

The Swarm app is depicted on the screenshots throughout this article.

In a nutshell, Foursquare wants its main mobile app to focus on check-ins minus the gamification that has often been associated with the software. “We never set out to make a ‘game’,” a blog post says. “We wanted to make people’s experiences more fun and playful.”

Now that Foursquare is 50 million users strong, the team is moving these gamified features such us points (a measure of how exciting your outings were), badges (a sense of accomplishment) and mayorships (competing with your friends) to a dedicated Swarm app.

The app focuses on your nearby friends so there’s no invite list and you can “leave it as open-ended as you want.” The app centers around your activities, visible to all your friends in your city.

Speaking of which, your friends in Swarm can see if you’re in their neighborhood and how close you are. To enable or disable this neighborhood sharing feature, simply swipe right at the top of any screen, like this.

Another powerful Swarm feature: location history search.

When you tap over to your profile, the search field pops up allowing you to search for just about anything, be it a city, a person or a type of place – Swarm will analyze your old check-ins to find exactly what you’re looking for.

Swarm highlights:

You guys have told us you love the little nuggets of insight we serve up after each check-in, like “Your 4th week in a row at your gym,” or “Your first time hanging out with Jason in 3 months.” These will continue to be an important part of Swarm.

In the new Swarm, we built a bunch of stickers you can attach to your check-ins to quickly express how you feel or what you’re doing. (Don’t worry, they’re all free!) We’ll give you a few to start off with and, as you go out and explore the world, you’ll unlock more based on the places you visit. (Hint: try checking in at lots of different types of places to unlock new ones!)

We wanted to get back to a fun way to compete with your friends instead of all 50,000,000 people who are on Foursquare. With these new mayorships, if you and a couple friends have been checking in to a place, the person who has been there the most lately gets a crown sticker.

So you and your friends can compete for the mayorship of your favorite bar, without having to worry about the guy who is there every. single. day. Mayors 2.0 means that places can have many different mayors, one for each circle of friends, instead of just a single mayor at each place.

In the new Foursquare (coming this summer), we’ve also built the spiritual successor to badges. Badges were always meant to recognize and reward people who would seek out and find awesome things in the real world, and we found a great new way to do that.

More about the Swarm app can be found at the official website.

The decision to create Swarm while rethinking the main Foursquare app may have had something to do with heightened competition in this space.

Although Microsoft recently bought a stake in Foursquare worth fifteen million dollars, the startup is about to lose an important client as Facebook-owned Instagram has been testing location integration with Facebook Places.

Therefore, Foursquare will lose (or already has lost) a significant revenue stream as Instagram stops using its location services. Curiously enough, Microsoft is also a minority investor in Facebook and is its search provider.

Foursquare’s bet here is that the new Swarm app will boost engagement by focusing on gamification because people love to brag about their achievements. The good news is that Foursquare’s main database of check-ins remains unmatched by rivals (Facebook Places is a joke).

At any rate, it’ll be fun seeing how things unfold for Foursquare.

Download Foursquare for free from the App Store.

The app is universal and iOS 7.0 or later is required.

Whatsapp Bans Under 16S Ahead Of Gdpr

WhatsApp, announced that it was not requesting any new rights to collect personal information in the agreement it created for the European Union

Barely a day passes without another social media platform notifying me of updated terms of business. Now, in a new twist to the ongoing data protection saga that is European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – due to come into effect on 25th May 2023, WhatsApp intends to ban under 16 year olds across Europe from its system. Potentially that represents a significant chunk of its 1.5bn users. (WhatsApp is the fifth most popular social network with 12 -15-year olds, after Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and YouTube).

Download our Premium Resource –GDPR Briefing for marketing professionals

Our round-up and recommendations on practical steps to comply with European Union data protection and privacy legislation.

Access the GDPR and ePrivacy briefing for marketing professionals

According to researcher eMarketer, about a fifth of Snapchat users in the US are aged 12-17.

Currently, WhatsApp is available to children aged 13 years +.  According to a 2023 report by the media regulator Ofcom, approximately a third of all UK-based 12 to 15-year-olds active on social media use WhatsApp. Ofcom suggests that half of children aged 11 and 12 have a social media profile, despite most platforms’ minimum age is 13. Over the next 21 days, WhatsApp users will need to confirm that they are aged over 16, as well as agree to updated terms and privacy policies.

WhatsApp, announced that it was not requesting any new rights to collect personal information in the agreement it created for the European Union.

“Our goal is simply to explain how we use and protect the limited information we have about you,” it said.

Outside Europe, WhatsApp’s minimum age of use will remain 13 years.

Cheating the system

Already many have criticised the blatantly obviously loophole in WhatsApp’s plan; namely, how will WhatsApp check ages? According to press reports, at the time of writing WhatsApp still had not explained how it will maintain the new age controls.

It’s parent company Facebook, which already bars under 13s from signing up, is taking a completely different approach.  It will invite a parent or guardian of 13 – 16-year olds to provide permission for them to share information on the platform.  If not, the youngsters won’t get to enjoy a fully personalized experience which includes sharing their political and religious views.

However, it’s widely accepted that a hefty portion of Facebook users are not quite 13 years old. They simply pretend that they are; after all, there are no immediate practical consequences.

Legally, all websites and apps are obliged to “make reasonable efforts to verify” that a parent or guardian of someone aged under 16 years has provided consent for their child’s data to be managed. Some countries – including the UK – have been allowed to set the limit to under 13 years of age.

Facebook recently found itself named the latest ‘bad-child’ hanging around the social media block, since disclosing in March that the personal information of millions of users erroneously ended up in the hands of political consultancy Cambridge Analytica.

Equality for all – except kids blasting out all-night raves

Apple Inc., along with other Silicon Valley firms want to give people in America and elsewhere equal protections and rights which their European counterparts are set to enjoy.

Amazon has initiated new parental controls to its Alexa assistant. They include time limits to prevent children using Amazon’s smart speakers all night, and a “magic word” utility that will force younger users to say “please” when interacting with Alexa. Parents will be able to block songs with explicit lyrics played via Amazon’s music service.

Meanwhile, in its next software release, WhatsApp will let users download reports detailing the make and model of device they use, contacts and groups, as well as blocked numbers.

GDPR promises to be the most significant overhaul of online privacy since the birth of the internet; giving Europeans the right to know what personal data is stored as well as the right to have it deleted.  GDPR also includes explicit rules to protect youngsters whose personal data is processed to provide online services.

Implementing Particle Swarm Optimization Using Python

This article was published as a part of the Data Science Blogathon.

Introduction

The solution works by the logic where a candidate solution is worked upon to make it better by a specific measure of quality and then the operation is performed iteratively until a better solution is not available and thus reaching an optimal state itself. The language here will be Python and we will see a hands-on implementation of it using a python package “PySwarms”. We will cover the following topics here :

PSO: Particle Swarm Optimization

The inner workings

Variants or types of PSO

Implementing PSO with PySwarms

What is Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO)?

Image 1

The studies concluded that there was knowledge or wisdom sharing amongst animals that helped them get insight into a situation they haven’t faced before. In simpler words, finding food or evading prey becomes easy when all the birds of a flock share their observations and knowledge. The optimal solution hence becomes easier to pin down with swarm intelligence.

Inner working of Particle Swarm Optimization

Swarm behaviour can be of two types. First is the exploratory behaviour where animals seek their object in a larger solution space. Second is the exploitative behaviour where swarm intelligence helps them search a smaller more optimum area. PSOs and their parameters are mostly designed to find an optimum balance between exploration and exploitation. This ensures a good rate of convergence to the optimum.

2.1 Convergence of Particle Swarm Optimization

In a PSO convergence, it does not matter how a swarm will operate but the convergence to a specific local optimum when various personal bests which let’s say P or the best-known position of the swarm or also known as G will reach a local optimum for the problem. The ability which a PSO algorithm has so that it can exploit and explore can get affected by the topology structure. So for different structures, the algorithm can converge in a different manner because of the shape of the topology which is generally either a local ring or a global star. The topology structure defines the factors like searching, information sharing, speed, and even the direction in which each particle should follow.

Image 2

A PSO which has a global star structure where all particles are connected with each other has one benefit of the shortest average distance but a local ring structure where one particle is connected with the two nearest ones has the highest average distance in the whole swarm as shown in the above image. The figure on the left is the global star structure whereas the left one is the local ring structure. Each group consists of 16 particles and you can see why the average distance differs for both cases.

2.2 Adaptive mechanism

In an Adaptive mechanism, one can implement it with the required trade-off between convergence and divergence or exploitation and exploration. An APSO or Adaptive Particle Swarm Optimisation can outperform a regular PSO. With a faster convergence time, an APSO could also execute any global search across the whole search space.

Variants of Particle Swarm Optimization

PSO algorithms can be of different types, even simple ones. The particles and velocities can be initiated in different ways. Update the Swarm and then set values for Pi and G and so forth.

3.1 Gradient Particle Swarm Optimization

We can construct gradient-based PSOs by combining the efficiency of the PSO at exploring many local minimums with the gradient-based local search algorithms. This helps us to accurately calculate a local minimum. The PSO algorithm can be used for gradient-based PSO also where several local minima are discovered along with a deep basin of attraction for a deep local minimum. The deep minimum can then be confirmed using the local gradient-based search techniques.

3.2 Hybrid Particle Swarm Optimization

Image 4

4. Implementing Particle Swarm Optimization using PySwarms

As the name suggests, PySwarms is a python based tool that helps with swarm optimisation. Researchers, practitioners, and students alike use this tool in order to apply the PSO algorithm using a high-level interface. PySwarms is the best tool to integrate swarm optimisation with basic optimization.

This tool allows you to implement and use a number of many-particle swarm optimisation techniques. It’s also extremely user-friendly and adaptable to different projects. Your optimisation problem can also benefit from the support modules.

Now we will move on to using a global best optimizer using PySwarm’s functional API which is “pyswarms.single.GBestPSO” . We will plot it in both 2D and 3D manner.

You can install PySwarm by the following commands :

!pip install pyswarms

Now we will begin by importing some modules first :

Code :

# Import all the modules import numpy as np # Importing PySwarms import pyswarms as ps from pyswarms.utils.functions import single_obj as fx import matplotlib.pyplot as plt from pyswarms.utils.plotters import plot_contour, plot_surface from pyswarms.utils.plotters.formatters import Designer from pyswarms.utils.plotters.formatters import Mesher

After importing them all, we will begin with improving our sphere function, you can put any arbitrary settings to begin within our optimizer. The main three steps here are :

1. Set the hyperparameters to configure the swarm as a dictionary

2. To create the instance of an optimizer, pass the dictionary with all the relevant input parameters

3. The best cost and position in a variable can be saved by invoking the “optimize()” function.



4.1 Now on Visualizing the function

PySwarm already comes with various tools which will help you to visualise the behaviours of the swarm. These behaviours are constructed on the top of matplotlib which results in high customizable charts and user friendly too. There are also animation methods which are  “plot_contour()” and “plot_surface()” methods. These methods plot the particle in a 2D and 3D space respectively. To plot the sphere function, we need to add a specific function called mesh function into our swarm.

These help to visualise the particles graphically. We have already imported the “Mesher” class which helps us to achieve this. The “pyswarms.utils.plotters.formatters” module has many different formats so that you can customize the plots. Apart from Mesher, there is a “Designer” class that modifies the figure size, font size, and more along with an animator class for setting repeats and animation delays.

Code for 2D Plot :

m = Mesher(func=fx.sphere) animation = plot_contour(pos_history=optimizer.pos_history, mesher=m, mark=(0,0))

Output :

#Code for 3D Plot : # The preprocessing # Adjusting the figure d = Designer(limits=[(-1,1), (-1,1), (-0.1,1)], label=['x-axis', 'y-axis', 'z-axis']) animation3d = plot_surface(pos_history=pos_history_3d, # The cost_history that we computed mesher=m, designer=d, # Various Customizations mark=(0,0,0)) # Mark the minima

Output :

Note: Support for .gif will soon be added and hence youtube upload for now. The First 10 seconds of the video are essential, the rest is not much. The collab notebook link is given below :

Conclusion

So in this post, we have seen the theory and how a PSO works and explored the inner mechanism. We saw some of its variants and how it has been used in various domains and communities. Last but not least we also implemented a small python based swarm of our own. Feel free to text me if you face any issues or run into any problems.

Emeritus Announces The Launch Of The 10Th Cohort Of Executive Program In General Management

CAMBRIDGE, MA — Created in collaboration with MIT Sloan, the program prepares executives for a strategic management role in their organizations.

Emeritus will launch the 10th cohort of MIT Sloan’s Executive Program in General Management this fall. The nine-month multimodular general management and leadership program introduces mid-career managers and leaders to the latest in MIT thought leadership on innovation, strategy, entrepreneurship, decision making, and leadership. The program is a collaboration between MIT Sloan and Emeritus, the global leader in making world-class professional education accessible and affordable. Enrollment is now open for a December 5, 2023, program start.

In a volatile and changing global and business environment, leaders need to rethink traditional approaches while driving digital transformation to address the needs of their customers and other stakeholders. According to the DDI Global Leadership Forecast, 48 percent of business leaders say they want outside coaching and developmental assignments to grow their skills. The Executive Program in General Management provides executives with key leadership skills such as integrating an entrepreneurial mindset into corporate culture, making technology-enhanced strategic decisions, building collaborative organizations, and managing key talent across global markets.

The program’s curriculum is derived from MIT’s world-renowned research centers, labs, and faculty dedicated to exploring the challenges, opportunities, and fundamental attributes of leading international organizations and driving innovation. Unique among many executive programs offered globally, this program blends online sessions with immersion modules at MIT Sloan, including visits to companies in the greater Boston area. In addition to the core curriculum, participants have the opportunity to work on hands-on group action learning projects. Upon completion of the program, participants receive select alumni benefits and are awarded the Advanced Certificate for Executives (ACE) in Management, Innovation, and Technology and a certificate from MIT Sloan.

The Executive Program in General Management is ideal for senior executives in emerging markets who are looking to reinforce their strengths, learn new skills, and connect with other high-achieving professionals from around the world. Over the previous nine cohorts, the program has made a tremendous impact on the careers of more than 350 executives working in a wide range of industries including finance, healthcare and pharmaceutical, automobile, technology and information systems, consulting, education, banking and finance, food and beverages, telecommunications, real estate, utilities, and manufacturing, among others.

“The program provided me with an excellent combination of curriculum focused on the latest and proven frameworks of business management, innovation, and technology that can be applied across geographies and industries,” said program alumnus Himanshu Joshi, Director of Operations at the space tech firm ThinkOrbital. “The flexibility to continue with my job while undergoing a program from a world-class faculty at MIT and interacting with a diversified global cohort, coupled with the hybrid mode of instruction, attracted me to it.”

The program is led by Faculty Director David Robertson, Senior Lecturer at MIT Sloan, who teaches product development and digital product management.

List Of Top 13 Stunning Typography App

Web Designs with Awesome Typography App

A website has many components, and many of us might differ in our choices of components that make the website look visually appealing. The themes, colors, and pictures are all contributing factors, but the Typography app enhances the feel and sets the tone of a website.

Start Your Free Software Development Course

Web development, programming languages, Software testing & others

It is nothing but how the web design type is displayed, type meaning, whatever is written. The font, size, spacing, color, everything comes under Typography. It is important to note that no matter how exquisite is the theme of your website or how attractive the colors are, it is the typography app that makes it one of a kind.

But just like the numerous mistakes you can commit while designing a website using images, themes, etc., you must follow specific guidelines for using a typography app to avoid apparent issues.

Do not try and do too much. Use, at the most, 2-4 font types or faces in your design. Using Font types more than that will make your website messy and cluttered instead of giving it a clean and beautiful appearance.

Maintain a proper hierarchy. This helps your viewers to have an easy way through your website. The text and elements are aligned and arranged to set the mood and directions to be followed while using your website.

There is only one important rule: “CONTENT IS KING!” Make the content your priority, and everything else will fall around it. Many tools are available online to help you with your typography skills. Typekit Practice is one of the tools you should start with. The lessons are so designed that you will be an expert Typography Professional in no time. Modular Scale, chúng tôi Hoefler&Co., FontFace Ninja, Google Fonts, and many more tools are out there to make your Typography skills experience the best you can have.

List of websites with excellent typography

Below are some of the websites with fantastic typography.

1. The New Yorker – Best Typography app-inspired websites.

Achieving the look and feel of being old and traditional yet beautiful is difficult, but The New Yorker helps you do that perfectly. It is an online magazine that is easy to access and very stylish. The use of evergreen colors like red, black, and white with a tinge of grey make it look like a printed magazine. Also, the use of readable and elegant font with colors contrasting the background makes The New Yorker one of the best Typography skills-inspired websites.

2. Moresoda

A black background needs a pop of colors to make it look trendy. Moresoda sets the trend by using eye-catching colors like bright pink, cyan, and light green along with black in the background, and there is only one color that would go with all of these if you wish to write something on the page, and that is white. Just a few sentences here and a couple of words there make Moresoda a neat and trend-setting website.

3. Good

The name of the website itself says a lot about its style! A clean, readable font accompanied by the minimal use of colors and excellent spacing and placement make the site GOOD looking!

Black, grey, and white is a classic combination, and keeping things reasonably simple is a considerable risk that the creators of the Good website were ready to take, and it paid off. The large font size of the bold headings will grab your attention, and the story that goes with it, though relatively smaller in comparison, is crystal clear. So, Good, in that sense, has done a great job!

4. Information Highwayman

You can put the best-looking background images on your website to enhance its look, but sometimes, a beautiful typography app enhances the background and do the job for you!

But what if you have a blank canvas? How do you make a blank page look attractive? The answer is simple again. Use your web design skills in the art of the Typography app. Information Highwayman has nothing in the background. It is empty, white as a sheet of paper, and no fancy-looking font is used either, but the simple use of fonts and colors in the text makes it a beautiful and stylish website. The simplicity of Information Highway is breathtakingly gorgeous!

5. Black Estate – Best Typography app

The white letters take the website to a higher level of elegance and beauty. Not only is everything distinctly visible, but you don’t need anything else to make it more alluring. The use of a sophisticated font is all that is required. “Black Beauty” often describes a beautiful individual with a darker complexion. On websites, Black Estate is the “Black Beauty.”

6. Elysium Burns

Elysium Burns is the perfect example of sophistication and style! This website has a lot of elements in it, but each element is distinct and clear. It is not very colorful, but using different font styles and font sizes for other functionalities makes this website look good instead of a mess.

There is a different font for the company name, another for headings, another for sub-headings, and an entirely different one for the content that falls under these headings. A lot is going on in a single page regarding the design point of view, but all of these combine to make sense.

7. Type Daily

If the word Type in Type Daily doesn’t make it obvious, it is; Type Daily is a website that links to other type-related websites online. The design is straightforward. There are just links to other websites in bright green that pop out in a slightly dark background which changes to a lovely shade of orange when you hover over it. Simple but effective!

8. Erratic Wisdom Best Typography app

Ever heard the phrase “Bold is Beautiful!” Well, Erratic Wisdom hits the mark with this phrase.
