This headway is generally achieved through a joint effort of combined effect displayed by the players together with their customers.Apply for a Mozilla FellowshipMozilla just opened its call for 2019-2020 fellows -- opportunities for developers, activists, researchers, and tech policy experts who are creating more responsible AI.During their 10-month tenure, Mozilla fellows design products, run campaigns, and influence policy around the theme of “better machine decision making.” Fellows might research how disinformation spreads on Facebook. Or, build a tool that identifies blind spots in algorithms that detect cancer. Or, advocate for a “digital bill of rights” that protects individuals from invasive facial recognition technology.Fellows receive competitive funding + benefits, like supplements for healthcare and childcare, and a travel stipend.Moving from Cassandra to Scylla via Apache Spark: The Scylla MigratorScylla writes about the data migration tool that they've built for migrating data from Apache Cassandra to their DB. The tool has some interesting properties, such as the ability to resume from a checkpoint, preservation of TTL and modification time, and support for simple transformations.SERVERLESS DATA INGESTION INTO BIGQUERYA tutorial for using a Google Cloud Function to load data via Google Cloud Storage into BigQuery. The post covers configuring permissions, managing API key secrets (for capturing data from a 3rd party system), and deployment.Free eBook on how technologies like AI/ML and a customer-centric approach can help optimize collectionsTechnologies like AI can lead to a more cohesive, customer-centric collections process for building loyal customers and increasing productivity.
