Accelerate Your Business 10X with the SOTI ONE Platform


What propels us to move faster? To go farther? To accelerate? Are we designed to perpetually race against time? Or are we determined to make each moment of our time count? Throughout our history, we’ve been prompted to do more with our time, to strive for more, and to accomplish more. Yet technology itself doesn’t inherently lead to acceleration. Our inability to see its true potential can leave us in a state of paradox. Slowed down. Stagnant. But how can we move forward if we limit ourselves to the familiar? To what we’ve always known, to what feels comfortable. At SOTI we believe that the key to acceleration lies not just in our use of technology, but in disrupting the status quo to do the impossible, to what conventional wisdom never dreamed into reality. We are driven to move faster and to go farther because the world is constantly changing. To keep up we continuously think and rethink of a better way. A new way. We’re committed to helping you accelerate your business.

Kelly Dunham of GE Aviation Takes the World to Work


Hi, I’m Kelley Dunham. Lead test engineer here at GE Aviation’s test operations in Peebles, Ohio. Welcome to day three: stand testing. Today, I’m going to show you how we assemble the final pieces of our GE9X engine, And then take it through a series of tests. So for that, let’s go check out our first stop: The Ed Spears Complex. So yesterday, you got to see development assembly of the GE9X in Evandale. And they send the propulsor here and we put on the final touches. So we install the fan case and the fan
blades. So now, it’s time to install the fan blades. So this is one of the 9X’s we’re prepping for tests. As you can see here on the side, This is all the instrumentation we’re putting on the fan case. Oh and look, it’s Phil. Hey Phil, how’s it going? It’s going good today! My name is Phil Ferguson, I’ve been here 15 years. Down here in the Fred building, we install the instrumentation, Anything to measure vibration temperature just to name a few, To ensure we have the best engine in the
world. Awesome! Thank you, have a great day. Behind me is the fully assembled GE9x. It has a total of 16 composite fan blades. Out here in Peebles, our facility is pretty big. In fact, it’s just over 7,000 acres. That means we can’t exactly just push the engine to the next stop. For that, we gotta hitch a ride. Before an engine is certified for flight, We have to take it through a series of rigorous testing. And when I say rigorous, I mean rigorous. Crosswind testing, hailstorm testing, hailstone testing, ETOPS, Performance testing, endurance testing,
block test, dynamics testing. Let’s head inside now to check out the control room where the testings actually done. I’m gonna introduce you to Nick, Who’s gonna tell us a little bit more about how we monitor tests while they’re running. Nick! Hi, I’m Nick– Test level owner here at site six. So today what we’re gonna do, we’re gonna run this vibe endurance check here, Make sure everything looks good in this engine I think we’re ready to go if you are. Alright, let’s do this! Let’s do it. Alright let’s do this. Vibe check Kelly? Vibes are good! Here we go, time is 14:18. Begin accel in three, two, one Vibe tests will be running for awhile, So let’s go check out some other engines that are running. This engine behind me is running power calibrations. That big dome you see over there is what we call the TCS dome or the turbulence control structure. Behind me are the two production test cells. So once the GE9X is the certified engine, All the engines will run through here for production testing. The great thing about the indoor test cells is that we can run no matter what the weather is. Rain, sleet, or snow, we can still run the engine. Thanks for following along today! I hope you enjoyed the inside look at how we test our GE9X engines Here at the Peebles test operations in Peebles, Ohio. Check back in tomorrow for on-wing
testing with our chief test pilot. See ya!

Aaron Perry of GE Aviation Takes the World to Work


Hey there, I’m Aaron Perry, Development Assembly Mechanic here in GE Evendale on the GE9X. Welcome to day 2. So today I’m gonna take you through the process we use to take all these parts and make a GE9X development engine. Let’s go! The parts came from all over the world. Check it out. Booster came from Belgium. Fan Hub Frame came from France. Forward Cases came from Taiwan. CDN, United States of America. TCF, Germany. LPT, Italy. See I told you they came from all over the world. Looks like this engine needs a Lower Stator Case but before we can install that we got to go see the planner who’s developing the process. So now that we have the Lower Stator Case ready for assembly, we need our process, our instructions, our plan for making sure that it gets installed correctly. That’s where my buddy, Aaron Caskey, comes into play. Sup, Aaron! He’s a GE9X planner. He’s gonna tell you a little bit more about what he does. Oh yeah, so here we are developing a template to install the Lower Stator Case on the GE9X. But it’s not set in stone yet, have to bounce it back off Aaron to make sure it makes sense to him. Once we look at it and we determine that everything looks good and that the Stator Case assembly should go as expected, I’ll come back to Aaron and say, “let’s go to the next step.” Thanks, Aaron! Thanks, Aaron. So before we put this Lower Stator Case on, we got one more stop. We need to check with our Instrumentation Process Engineer, Freddy, to make sure he’s got all his hardware installed. Hey Fred. Hey Aaron. Currently working on installing light probes as you can see it’s on the outer case of that forward case and it’s all done right now. Let’s go install this thing! Alright, we’re ready to install the Lower Stator Case. We’re gonna take the Stator Case and I’m gonna put it on the engine right there. My buddy Mike is here to help us out. Hey Mike, introduce yourself. Yes, my name is Mike Whalen, and I’m an Assembly Mechanic with General Electric and I’ve been here seven and a half years. Alright Aaron, you ready? Let’s do it! Alright it looks like we’ve got this engine just about wrapped up and we wanna check with our Assembly Engineer to make sure all the paperwork’s in line before we ship it. Hey Anne! Just making sure everything’s checked off to ship. How’s it look? Looks good. Let’s ship it! So growing up, I always like space flight, space travel, aircraft, airplanes. That curiosity has stayed with me. Still fascinated with it, I still love it. And here I am, an aviation icon, GE Aviation, working in my hometown on the biggest, best jet engine manufactured today with the newest technologies. It’s the best place to work. Hey, thanks for watching how we put these beasts together. Come back tomorrow to see how we test them at Peebles. See ya.

How Does Aspirin Work?


There are lots of ways to numb yourself to
the minor aches and pains that we humans accrue in our daily lives, but today we’re talking
about aspirin. Why aspirin? Because although aspirin as we know it has
only existed since the late 1800s, the plant that it was originally derived from, willow,
is probably the oldest known painkiller in history. Records of people using willow leaves to relieve
pain and fevers stretch back 6,000 years to ancient Assyria and Sumer. Willow was also put to use in ancient Egypt,
Babylon, and China – and Hippocrates thought it was pretty rad, especially for pain during
childbirth. In the 17 and 1800s, scientists worked on
identifying, extracting, and purifying the active ingredient in willow, which turned
out to be a chemical they called salicin. Which, they further discovered, your digestive
system changes into salicylic acid. Which is what reacts with stuff in your body
to relieve pain, reduce fever and swelling, and etcetera. More on how all that works in a second. First: salicylic acid. German chemists figured out how to synthesize
it on an industrial scale in the 1870s, effectively ending millennia of willow powder use. But it had its drawbacks – lots of patients
couldn’t stomach it. Literally. It was really hard on the stomach lining. The son of one such patient, a chemist with
Friedrich Bayer & Co. by the name of Felix Hoffmann, thought it might be less irritating
if it was less acidic. So Hoffmann converted it to what Bayer & Co.
dubbed Aspirin in 1899. Aspirin has become the popular (and less-ridiculous-to-pronounce)
name for Hoffmann’s chemical compound: acetylsalicylic acid, or salicylate. It works, as humanity finally figured out
in the 1970s, by preventing your cells from using cyclooxygenase-2 to create prostaglandins. And don’t worry, I’m about to unpack that. Let’s start with the idea that lots of pain
is useful, evolutionarily speaking. When you feel pain due to an injury, like
a burn or a twisted ankle, it prompts you to take your hand away from the hot thing
right quick, or to keep your weight off the ankle until it heals. Useful. Pain from an injury to anything-but-the-nervous-system
is called nociceptive pain — after specialized sensory neurons located throughout your body
called nociceptors. They alert your brain to damage with the help
of the damaged tissue itself. Cells in the hurt area start producing enzymes
that work together to create a few signal chemicals, including those prostaglandins
I mentioned a minute ago. Prostaglandins tell your nociceptors: “No,
hey, seriously, there’s a problem here.” They make your nociceptors increase the signal
to your brain. You feel the pain more acutely. Prostaglandins are also one of the chemicals
that cause inflammation in the tissue around a wound. They make your blood vessels expand, flooding
the damaged tissue with all the immune-system stuff your body sends to protect the wound
from infection and to help it heal. All of this is great right up until it isn’t. After a certain point, you don’t need continual,
acute pain as a reminder that you’re injured. And some nociceptive pain and swelling is
warning us about stimuli that we can’t easily avoid: like headaches, arthritis, or period
cramps. Here’s where aspirin swoops in to save the
day. When you take aspirin, it’s absorbed by
your digestive tract into your bloodstream, which takes it throughout your body – including
places where cells are excreting the enzymes necessary to produce prostaglandins. Molecules of aspirin lock up with one of those
enzymes: cyclooxygenase-2. Once a molecule of cyclooxygenase-2 is locked
into a molecule of aspirin, it can’t help create prostaglandins. Which means fewer prostaglandins, which means
that the pain signals to your brain don’t increase as much and the tissue in the area
doesn’t swell as much. Thanks, aspirin! And thousands of years of science! What other medicines are you curious about? Let me know in the comments, and maybe my
next headache will be trying to figure that medicine out. Give us a like – and subscribe – if you
learned something here. And for lots more about sources of and remedies

ğŸŒžMicrosoft Outlook 2016 Out Of Office/Vacation Auto Email Reply


here’s how to set up an out of office
message in Outlook 2016 first you’ll need to create the message itself open
up a new email leaving the address field blank create your message the subject I
choose is out of office first to 7th of May next write the text of your message
I’ll be out of the office from first to seventh of May inclusive and so on
but now instead of sending it to someone save it as a template go to file then
save as and select save as type outlook template outlook will helpfully take you
to the templates folder and you can name it out of office and the date and then
save it that’s the first step done next we’ll use outlooks rules to set up a new
rule that will send a reply using the template you’ve just saved go to rules
manage rules and alerts and create a new rule it’s a logical process that you
build step by step I want to start with a blank rule and apply the rule after
the message arrives next I choose where my name is in the to box and click Next
that means the message will reply automatically to anything that’s sent to
me then I choose reply using a specific template I choose the template I’ve just
saved by clicking on the link here and selecting user templates in the file
system there it is click on it and select open I can see the rule building
in the box here and it’s showing the correct template next you’re offered the
chance to specify exceptions now this is very important
if someone sends you an automated message you don’t want to reply
automatically to that because you’ll set up a chain reaction of ping-pong
messages that will quickly flood everyone’s inbox including your own
so select accept if it’s an automated reply you can select other exceptions if
you want the final step is to finish the rule setup and you’re given two options
the first option is to apply the rule to everything in the inbox and you
definitely don’t want to do that the second option is simply to turn the rule
on you can either leave it until you’re about to go away or you can turn it on
right now turning it on produces a warning message
it will only work if you leave Outlook on and running it’s not magic you can
test it by sending yourself an email from a different account and when you
get back to the office remember to turn the rule off go to rules manage rules
and simply uncheck the rule that’s it now you’re back to normal and you can
start to answer the 1,700 emails or so that have arrived since you went away of
course you could always have set up a rule to divert all your emails for
someone else to answer but it’s probably best to warn them first eTop Technology

Top 5 Marketing A.I.’s People Won’t Shut Up About


Artificial intelligence is undoubtedly
the future of marketing technology with new machine learning platforms allowing
agencies and brands unparalleled ability to target audiences. I’m Rick Boost and
these are the top five marketing AI systems that people just will not shut
up about. Number 5: Einstein The Einstein AI is named after
history’s most famous scientists and the dog from Back to the Future “Einstein! You little devil!” Einstein is a bit of an odd system to describe unlike the other AIs which are
crafted and pitched as massive super brains, Einstein is relatively simple. It’s
made up of two main comprehension components; a language tool and an image tool. What makes Einstein powerful is its ability to link up to the plethora
of Salesforce platforms. By cross-referencing between them it has
access to a multitude of information. This means that as Salesforce grows its
selection of platforms through acquisitions and partnerships, Einstein
will only grow stronger itself. It’s sort of like the blob, except not quite as
scary. Quite. Number four: Albert. Next up is Albert, which is also named after Einstein! “Einstein! You little devil!” Although to be fair Albert got there first with the name in 2010. Now
Albert is the complete opposite of Einstein because it actually is a
massive super brain. This product is being sold as capable of running an
entire campaign. We’re talking about analytics, insight, strategy, scheduling.
Now a lot of project leads are going to feel very dubious about leaving their
entire campaign in the hands of what amounts to a robot. “YOU WILL SERVICE…US.” Just as many employees are gonna feel a bit nervous themselves about possibly losing their jobs to said robot. “YOU HAVE 20 SECONDS TO COMPLY” The problem is is that Albert has had some very juicy case studies coming in that show (strangely
enough) it works to leave it to the robot. number three Watson Now Watson is exactly what you think of when someone says AI in that Watson is a living
breathing supercomputer that was built by the greatest minds at IBM. It was
built for one purpose and one purpose alone. Some might say the greatest goal
in all humanity…To beat Jeopardy “Watson!” “What is shoe?” “You are right” “Watson!” “Who is Jude?” “Yes” “Watson!” “Who is Michael Phelps?” “Yes” “Watson!” “What is event horizon?” “Who is Grendel?” “What is London?” “What is stick?” “Stick is right.” Yeah. The greatest supercomputer built by mankind was constructed to beat nerds at trivia. But not really. In fact that game show smackdown was just a dry run. It was to
show off if Watson’s natural learning and language abilities were up to snuff,
which they certainly were. From these humble beginnings Watson’s processing
power has been behind the scenes of multiple industries, which now includes
marketing. Watson’s marketing tool set is already able to follow customer journeys
create predictive models to generate unique user experiences on websites and
find visual assets for campaigns, saving valuable time. Watson is even able to
interface with IBM’s weather system, which means that Watson
can now generate strategies based on localized climate in an area.
Sherlock may be smart but Watson is a beast. Number Two: Vidora Vidora has been pitched as being able to understand customers like no other
system before it. Vidora will tag and track individual users on a mass scale
which then means it can follow and then predict their customer behaviour. Now
other systems are capable of doing this, so this sounds kind of simple but Vidora does it on such a level the others don’t, whether a change to the company as a whole or even to a single product will change customer perceptions negatively
or positively. Vidora’s focus is not a weakness. I would see it as a strength. It
is a focused tool it is a scalpel to the butcher knife that other AI’S are. Number One: Marcel *Confused Grunt* Alright, alright, alright for realsies. Okay we all know the drama that happened last year. The place is Cannes and Publicis is announcing in front of all
the other cool kids that they’re done with awards saying, “Like awards are like
2015 lame and you know they’re just gonna move on to an AI that they built.
It’s called Marcel. You know it’s totally hot. And it’s totally real. You know he just
lives in Canada so you haven’t heard of it. The announcement that Publicis was
halting all awards spending to move those resources to building an AI was
nothing short of earth-shattering. People were furious, most notably publicist
staff, who rather like awards since they get to hang them on their agency walls
and they get to put them on their CVs. Whatever Marcel was it would
have to be bloody spectacular. Unfortunately all we’ve been able to
glean about Marcel is that it’s some kind of international matchmaking tool
that project leads can use to connect teams based on skills, location, and
experience. It’s also apparently some kind of management tool in itself and
it’s also some kind of communication platform. So Marcel in theory is
basically if Trello Skype LinkedIn and Tinder all got
together and spawned an amazing abomination.
Publicis only teamed up with Microsoft at the start of this year six months on
from Cannes to properly begin development on this platform. We know nothing really,
apart from a few tweets and a few dodgy statements. Marcel could be anything at
this point so everything I just said in six months from now, one year from now, a century from now (if it take that long to build Marcel) I’ll to be claimed a
complete moron or the Nostradamus of marketing AI Tech. If you would like to
read a far more detailed in-depth explanation of all these AI platforms, as
well as a few we didn’t get around to, definitely click the link below which
has digital experts Eric Thain and Zaheer Nooruddin as well as Or Shani the CEO of
Albert, giving their opinions on all these AI systems and which are their
favorites. Also please leave a comment below about how much I butchered this
video or what you think about AI. Do you think you’re going to accept it into
your lives? Or do you think you’re going to reject it? What is your favorite AI
system? Have you used one? Are there topics you would like us to take on in
future top 5 videos? We want to hear from you! So put it in the comments below and
share the living hell out of this with all your marketing nerds. Do it.
