Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning play a bigger part in our lives today than most people can imagine. We use intelligent services and applications every day that rely heavily on Machine Learning advances. Voice activation services like Siri or Alexa, image recognition services like Snapchat or Google Image Search, and even self driving cars all rely on the ability of machines to learn and adapt.

If you’re new to Machine Learning, it can be very easy to get bogged down in buzzwords and complex concepts of this dark art. With this in mind, we thought we’d put together a quick introduction to the basics of Machine Learning and how it works.

Note: This post is aimed at newbies – if you know a Bayesian model from a CNN, head on over to the research section of our blog, where you’ll find posts on more advanced subjects.

So what exactly is Machine Learning?

Machine Learning refers to a process that is used to train machines to imitate human intuition – to make decisions without having been told what exactly to do.

Machine Learning is a subfield of computer science, and you’ll find it defined in many ways, but the simplest is probably still Arthur Samuel’s our definition from 1959: “Machine Learning gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed”. Machine Learning explores how programs, or more specifically algorithms, learn from data and make predictions based on it. These algorithms differ from traditional programs by not relying on strict coded instruction, but by making data-driven, informed predictions or decisions based on sample training inputs. Its applications in the real world are highly varied but the one common element is that every Machine Learning program learns from past experience in order to make predictions in the future.

Machine Learning can be used to process massive amounts of data efficiently, as part of a particular task or problem. It relies on specific representations of data, or “features” in order to recognise something, similar to how when a person sees a cat, they can recognize it from visual features like its shape, its tail length, and its markings, Machine Learning algorithms learn from from patterns and features in data previously analyzed.

Different types of Machine Learning

There are many types of Machine Learning programs or algorithms. The most common ones can be split into three categories or types:

    1. Supervised Machine Learning
    2. Unsupervised Machine Learning
    3. Reinforcement Learning

1. Supervised Machine Learning

Supervised learning refers to how a Machine Learning application has been trained to recognize patterns and features in data. It is “supervised”, meaning it has been trained or taught using correctly labeled (usually by a human) training data.

The way supervised learning works isn’t too different to how we learn as humans. Think of how you teach a child: when a child sees a dog, you point at it and say “Look! A dog!”. What you’re doing here essentially is labelling that animal as a “dog”. Now, It might take a few hundred repetitions, but after a while the child will see another dog somewhere and say “dog,” of their own accord. They do this by recognising the features of a dog and the association of those features with the label “dog” and a supervised Machine Learning model works in much the same way.

It’s easily explained using an everyday example that you have certainly come across. Let’s consider how your email provider catches spam. First, the algorithm used is trained on a dataset or list of thousands of examples of emails that are labelled as “Spam” or “Not spam”. This dataset can be referred to as “training data”. The “training data” allows the algorithm to build up a detailed picture of what a Spam email looks like. After this training process, the algorithm should be able to decide what label (Spam or Not spam) should be assigned to future emails based on what it has learned from the training set. This is a common example of a Classification algorithm – a supervised algorithm trained on pre-labeled data.

2. Unsupervised Machine Learning

Unsupervised learning takes a different approach. As you can probably gather from the name, unsupervised learning algorithms don’t rely on pre-labeled training data to learn. Alternatively, they attempt to recognize patterns and structure in data. These patterns recognized in the data can then be used to make decisions or predictions when new data is introduced to the problem.

Think back to how supervised learning teaches a child how to recognise a dog, by showing it what a dog looks like and assigning the label “dog”. Unsupervised learning is the equivalent to leaving the child to their own devices and not telling them the correct word or label to describe the animal. After a while, they would start to recognize that a lot of animals while similar to each other, have their own characteristics and features meaning they can be grouped together, cats with cats and dogs with dogs. The child has not been told what the correct label is for a cat or dog, but based on the features identified they can make a decision to group similar animals together. An unsupervised model will work in the same way by identifying features, structure and patterns in data which it uses to group or cluster similar data together.

Amazon’s “customers also bought” feature is a good example of unsupervised learning in action. Millions of people buy different combinations of books on Amazon every day, and these transactions provide a huge amount of data on people’s tastes. An unsupervised learning algorithm analyzes this data to find patterns in these transactions, and returns relevant books as suggestions. As trends change or new books are published, people will buy different combinations of books, and the algorithm will adjust its recommendations accordingly, all without needing help from a human. This is an example of a clustering algorithm – an unsupervised algorithm that learns by identifying common groupings of data.

Supervised Versus Unsupervised Algorithms

Each of these two methods have their own strengths and weaknesses, and where one should be used over the other is dependent on a number of different factors:
The availability of labelled data to use for training

    Whether the desired outcome is already known
    Whether we have a specific task in mind or we want to make a program for very general use
    Whether the task at hand is resource or time sensitive

Put simply, supervised learning is excellent at tasks where there is a degree of certainty about the potential outcomes, whereas unsupervised learning thrives in situations where the context is more unknown.

In the case of supervised learning algorithms, the range of problems they can solve can be constrained by their reliance on training data, which is often difficult or expensive to obtain. In addition, a supervised algorithm can usually only be used in the context you trained it for. Imagine a food classifier that has only been trained on pictures of hot dogs – sure it might do an excellent job at recognising hotdogs in images, but when it’s shown an image of a pizza all it knows is that that image doesn’t contain a hotdog.

Unsupervised learning approaches also have many drawbacks: they are more complex, they need much more computational power, and theoretically they are nowhere near as understood yet as supervised learning. However, more recently they have been at the center of ML research and are often referred to as the next frontier in AI. Unsupervised learning gives machines the ability to learn by themselves, to extract information about the context you put them in, which essentially, is the core challenge of Artificial Intelligence. Compared with supervised learning, unsupervised learning offers a way to teach machines something resembling common sense.

3. Reinforcement Learning

Reinforcement learning is the third approach that you’ll most commonly come across. A reinforcement learning program tries to teach itself accuracy in a task by continually giving itself feedback based on its surroundings, and continually updating its behaviour based on this feedback. Reinforcement learning allows machines to automatically decide how to behave in a particular environment in order to maximize performance based off ‘reward‘ feedback or a reinforcement signal. This approach can only be used in an environment where the program can take signals from its surroundings as positive or negative feedback.

Reinforcement Learning in action


Imagine you’re programming a self-driving car to teach itself to become better at driving. You would program it to understand certain actions – like going off the road for example – is bad by providing negative feedback as a reinforcement signal. The car will then look at data where it went off the road before, and try to avoid similar outcomes. For instance, if the car sees a pattern like when it didn’t slow down at a corner it was more likely to end up driving off the road, but when it slowed down this outcome was less likely, it would slow down at corners more.

Conclusion

So this concludes our introduction to the basics of Machine Learning. We hope it provides you with some grounding as you try to get familiar with some of the more advanced concepts of Machine Learning. If you’re interested in Natural Language Processing and how Machine Learning is used in NLP specifically, keep an eye on our blog as we’re going cover how Machine Learning has been applied to the field.

Last Friday we witnessed the start of what has been one of the biggest worldwide cyber attacks in history, the WannaCry malware attack. While information security and hacking threats in general receive regular coverage in the news and media, we haven’t seen anything like the coverage around the WannaCry malware attack recently. Not since the Sony Playstation hack in 2011 have we seen as much media interest in a hacking event.

News outlets cover hacking stories quite frequently because they pose this kind of threat to people. However, when we look at the news coverage over the course of the past 12 months in the graph below, we can see that triple the average monthly story volume on malware was produced in the first three days of the attack alone.

In this blog, we’ll use our News API to look at the media coverage of WannaCry before the news of the attack broke and afterwards, as details of the attack began to surface.

Monthly count of articles mentioning “malware” or “ransomware” over the last 12 months

By analyzing the news articles published about WannaCry and malware in general, with the help of some visualizations we’re going to look at three aspects:  

  • warning signs in the content published before the attack;  
  • how the story developed in the first days of the attack;
  • how the story spread across social media channels.

WannaCry

At 8am CET on Friday May 12th, the WannaCry attack began, and by that evening it had infected over 50,000 machines in 70 countries. By the following Monday, that had risen to 213,000 infections, paralyzing computer systems in hospitals, factories, and transport networks as well as personal devices. WannaCry is a ransomware virus – it encrypts all of the data on computers it infects, with users only having their data decrypted after they had paid $300 or $600 ransom to the hackers. Users who have had their device infected can only see the screen below until they have paid the ransom.

In the first six days after the attacks, the hackers have received over USD$90,000 through over 290 payments (you can track the payments made to the known Bitcoin wallets here via a useful Twitter bot created by @collinskeith), which isn’t a fantastic conversion rate considering they managed to infect over 200,000 computers. Perhaps if the hackers had done their market research they would have realized that their target audience – those still using Windows XP – are more likely to still write cheques than pay for things with Bitcoin.

The attack was enabled by tools that exploit security vulnerabilities in Windows called DoublePulsar and EternalBlue. These tools essentially allow someone to access every file on your computer by avoiding the security built into your operating system. The vulnerabilities were originally discovered by the National Security Agency (NSA) in the US, but were leaked by a hacker group called The Shadow Brokers in early April 2017.

The graph below, generated using the time series feature in our News API, shows how the coverage of ransomware and malware in articles developed over time. The Shadow Brokers’ dump in early April was reported on and certainly created a bit of noise, however it seems this was forgotten or overlooked by almost everyone until the attack itself was launched. The graph then shows the huge spike in news coverage once the WannaCry attack was launched.


Volume of articles mentioning “malware” or “ransomware” in April and May

Monitoring the Media for Warning Signs

Since WannaCry took the world by such surprise, we thought we’d dig into the news content in the weeks prior to the attack and see if we could find any signal in the noise that would have alerted us to a threat. Hindsight is 20/20, but an effective media monitoring strategy can give an in-depth insight into threats and crises as they emerge.

By simply creating a list of the hacking tools dumped online in early April and tracking mentions of these tools, we see definite warning signs. Of these 30 or so exploits, DoublePulsar and EternalBlue were the only ones mentioned again before the attack, and these ended up being the ones used to enable the WannaCry attack.

Mentions of each of the exploit tools dumped in April and May

 

We can then use the stories endpoint to collect the articles that contributed to the second spike in story volumes, around April 25th. Digging into these articles provides another clear warning: the articles collected cover reports by security analysts estimating that DoublePulsar had been installed on 183,000 machines since the dump ten days earlier (not too far off the over 200,000 machines WannaCry has infected). Although these reports were published in cybersecurity publications, news on the threat didn’t make it to mainstream media until the NHS was hacked and hospitals had to send patients home.

Trends in the Coverage

As it emerged early on Friday morning that malware was spreading through personal computers, private companies and government organizations, media outlets broke the story to the world as they gained information. Using the trends endpoint of our News API, we decided it would be interesting to try and understand what organizations and companies were mentioned in the news alongside the WannaCry attack. Below you can see the most mentioned organisations that were extracted from news articles about the attack.

Organisations mentioned in WannaCry stories

The next thing we wanted to do was to try and understand how the story developed over time and to illustrate how the media focus shifted from “what,” to “how,” to “who” over a period of a few days.

The focus on Friday was on the immediate impact on the first targets, like the NHS and Telefonica, but as the weekend progressed the stories began to focus on the method of attack, with many mentions of Windows and Windows XP (the operating system that was particularly vulnerable). On Monday and Tuesday the media turned then their focus to who exactly was responsible and as you can see from the visualization below mentions of  North Korea, Europol, and the NSA began to surface in the news stories collected.
Take a look at the chart below to see how the coverage of the entities changed over time.

 

Mentions of organisations on WannaCry stories published from Friday to Tuesday

 

Most Shared Stories about WannaCry

The final aspect of the story as a whole we focused on was how news of the threat spread across different social channels. Using the stories endpoint, we can rank WannaCry stories by their share counts across social media to get an understanding into what people shared about WannaCry. We can see below that people were very interested in the young man who unintentionally found a way to prevent the malware from attacking the machines it installed itself on. This contrasts quite a bit with the type of sources and subject matter of the articles from before the attack began.

Last month was full of unexpected high-profile publicity disasters, from passengers being dragged off planes to Kendall Jenner failing to solve political unrest.  For this month’s Monthly Media Roundup we decided to collect and analyze news stories related to three major events and try to understand the media reaction to each story, while also uncovering the impact this coverage had on the brands involved.

In the roundup of the month’s news, we’ll cover three major events:

  1. United Airlines’ mishandling of negative public sentiment cut their market value by $255 million.
  2. Pepsi’s ad capitalizing on social movements shows the limits of appealing to people’s consciousness for advertising.
  3. The firing of Bill O’Reilly shows how brands have become aware of the importance of online sentiment.

1: United Airlines

On Monday, April 10th, a video went viral showing a passenger being violently dragged off a United Airlines flight. On the same day, United CEO Oscar Munoz attempted to play down the controversy by defending staff and calling the passenger “disruptive and belligerent”. With investors balking at the tsunami of negative publicity that was compounded by Munoz, the following day United’s share price fell by over 1%, shaving $255 million off their market capitalization by the end of trading.
We collected relevant news articles published in April using a detailed search query with our News API. By analyzing the volume of articles we collected and
analyzing the sentiment of each article, we were able to get a clear picture of how the media responded to the video and subsequent events:

Media Reaction to United Airlines Controversy

The volume of stories published shows how quickly the media jumped on the story (and also that Munoz’s statement compounded the issue), while the sentiment graph shows just how negative all that coverage was. The key point here is that the action United took in dealing with the wave of negative online sentiment – not listening to the customer – led to their stock tumbling. Investors predicted that ongoing negative sentiment on such a scale would lose potential customers, and began offloading shares in response.

  2. Passengers film moment police drag man off a United Airlines plane” – Daily Mail, 25,142 upvotes

2: Pepsi

In contrast with United’s response, Pepsi’s quick reaction to online opinion paid off this month as they faced their own PR crisis. On April 3rd, Pepsi released an ad that was immediately panned for trying to incorporate social movements like Black Lives Matter into a soft drink commercial that prompted ridicule online.
After using our News API to collect every available article on this story and analyzing the sentiment of each article, we can get a picture of how the media reacted to the ad. This lets us see that on the day after the ad was launched, there were over three times more negative articles mentioning Pepsi than positive ones.

Media Reaction to Pepsi’s Kendall Jenner Ad

As a company that spends $2.5 billion annually on advertising, Pepsi were predictably swift in their response to bad publicity, pulling the ad from broadcast just over 24 hours after it was first aired.

Even though this controversy involved a major celebrity, the Pepsi ad debacle has actually been shared significantly less compared to the other PR disasters. By using our News API to rank the most shared articles across major social media platforms, we can see that the story gathered a lot less pace than those covering the United scandal.

  2. Pepsi pulls Kendall Jenner advert amid outcry” – BBC, 58 upvotes

3: Fox Firing Bill O’Reilly

On April 1st, the New York Times published an article detailing numerous previously unknown sexual harassment cases brought against Bill O’Reilly. O’Reilly, who was Fox’s most popular host, drew an average of 3 million views to his prime-time slot. Though his ratings were unscathed (they actually rose), advertisers began pulling their ads from O’Reilly’s slot in response to the negative PR the host was receiving.
We sourced every available story about Bill O’Reilly published in April, and analyzed the sentiment of each article. Below we can see just how negative this coverage was over the course of the story.

Media Reaction to Bill O’Reilly Controversy

This was not the first time that O’Reilly had been accused of sexual harassment, having been placed on leave in 2004 for the same reason. In both 2004 and April 2017, O’Reilly’s viewer ratings remained unhurt by the scandals. What is different in 2017 is that brands are far more aware of the “Voice of the Customer” – social media and online content representing the intentions of potential customers. This means negative coverage and trends like #DropOReilly have a considerable effect on brands’ marketing behaviour.



Most-mentioned Keywords in Articles about Bill O’Reilly in April

By analyzing the content from every article about Bill O’Reilly in April, we can rank the most frequently used Entities and Keywords across the collection of articles. Not surprisingly, our results show us that the coverage was dominated by the topic of sexual harassment and Fox News. But our analysis also uncovered other individuals and brands that were mentioned in news articles as being tied to the scandal. Brands like BMW and Mercedes took swift action to distance themselves from the backlash by announcing they were pulling advertising from O’Reilly’s show in an attempt to preempt any negative press.

Introduction

In this post, AYLIEN NLP Research Intern, Mahdi, talks us through a quick experiment he performed on the back of reading an interesting paper on evolution strategies, by Tim Salimans, Jonathan Ho, Xi Chen and Ilya Sutskever.

Having recently read Evolution Strategies as a Scalable Alternative to Reinforcement Learning, Mahdi wanted to run an experiment of his own using Evolution Strategies. Flappy Bird has always been among Mahdi’s favorites when it comes to game experiments. A simple yet challenging game, he decided to put theory into practice.

Training Process

The model is trained using Evolution Strategies, which in simple terms works like this:

  1. Create a random, initial brain for the bird (this is the neural network, with 300 neurons in our case)
  2. At every epoch, create a batch of modifications to the bird’s brain (also called “mutations”)
  3. Play the game using each modified brain and calculate the final reward
  4. Update the brain by pushing it towards the mutated brains, proportionate to their relative success in the batch (the more reward a brain has been able to collect during a game, the more it contributes to the update)
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 until a local maximum for rewards is reached.

At the beginning of training, the bird usually either drops too low or jumps too high and hits one of the boundary walls, therefore losing immediately with a score of zero. In order to avoid scores of zero in training, which would means there won’t be a measure of success among brains, Mahdi set a small 0.1 score for every frame the bird stays alive. This way the bird learns to avoid dying at the first attempt. He then set a score of 10 for passing each wall, so the bird tries not only to stay alive, but to pass as many walls as possible.

The training process is quite fast as there is no need for backpropagation, and it is also not very costly in terms of memory as there is no need to record actions, as it is in policy gradients.

The model learns to play pretty well after 3000 epochs, however it is not completely flawless and it rarely loses in difficult cases, such as when there is a high difference between two wall entrances.

Here is a demonstration of the model after 3000 epochs

(~5 minutes on an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770HQ CPU @ 2.20GHz):


Use the controls to set speed level or to restart

Web version

For ease of access, Mahdi has created a web version of the experiment which can be accessed here.

Try it yourself

Note: You need python3 and pip for installing and running the code.

First, download or clone the repository:

git clone https://github.com/mdibaiee/flappy-es.git


Next, install dependencies (you may want to create a virtualenv):

pip install -r requirements

The pretrained parameters are in a file named load.npy and will be loaded when you run train.py or demo.py

train.py will train the model, saving the parameters to saves/<TIMESTAMP>/save-<ITERATION>.

demo.py shows the game in a GTK window so you can see how the AI actually plays.


play.py if you feel like playing the game yourself, space: jump, once lost, press enter to play again.

Notes

It seems that training past a maximum point leads to a reduction in performance. Learning rate decay might help with this. Mahdi’s interpretation is that after finding a local maximum for accumulated reward and being able to receive high rewards, the updates become pretty large and will pull the model too much to different sides, thus the model will enter a state of oscillation.

To try it yourself, there is a long.npy file, rename it to load.npy (backup load.npy before doing so) and run demo.py, you will see the bird failing more often than not. long.py was trained for only 100 more epochs than load.npy.

Introduction

Welcome to the second installment in our series of monthly posts where we’ll be showcasing our News API by looking back at online news stories, articles and blog posts to uncover emerging insights and trends from topical categories.

For our February review, we looked at three IAB categories: Arts & Entertainment, Science and Politics.

For March, we’ve decided to narrow our focus a little further by looking at IAB subcategories to give you an idea of just how specific and granular you can be when sourcing and analyzing content through the News API. With this in mind, we’ve gone with the following three subcategories:

  1. Cell phones (subcategory of Tech & Computing)
  2. Boxing (subcategory of Sports)
  3. Stocks (subcategory of Personal FInance)

and for each subcategory we have performed the following analysis;

  • Publication volumes over time
  • Top stories
  • Most mentioned topics
  • Most shared stories on social media

Try it yourself

We’ve included code snippets for each of the analyses above so you can follow along or modify to create your own search queries.

If you haven’t already signed up to our News API you can do so here with a free 14 day News API trial.

1. Cell phones

The graph below shows publication volumes in the Cell phones subcategory throughout the month of March 2017.

Note: All visualizations are interactive. SImply hover your cursor over each to explore the various data points and information.

Volume of stories published: Cell phones

From the graph above we can see a number of spikes indicating sharp rises in publication volumes. Let’s take a look at the top 3;

Top stories

The three stories that contributed to the biggest spikes in news publication volumes;

  1. Samsung release their latest flagship phone, the Galaxy S8.
  2. The UK introduces a loss-of-license punishment for new drivers caught using their cell phones while driving.
  3. HTC reveal a limited edition version of their U Ultra smart phone.

It will perhaps come as no surprise to see one of the world’s top smartphone manufacturers, Samsung, getting the most media attention with the launch of their latest flagship model. In comparison, rivals HTC failed to generate the same level of hype around their latest model. However, by releasing a teaser about a surprise product release on March 15 they still managed to generate two of the top four publication volume spikes within the cell phone category in March.

Most mentioned topics

From the 7,000+ articles we sourced from the Cell phones category in March we looked at the most mentioned topics;

Try it yourself – here’s the query we used for most mentioned topics

Most shared on social media

What were the most shared stories on social media? We analyzed share counts from Facebook, LinkedIn and Reddit to see what type of content is performing best on each channel.

Facebook

  1. Man dies charging iPhone while in the bath (BBC. 26,072 shares)
  2. US bans electronic devices on flights from eight Muslim countries (The Independent. 25,886 shares)

Linkedin

  1. Samsung tries to reclaim its reputation with the Galaxy S8 (Washington Post. 890 shares)
  2. It’s Possible to Hack a Phone With Sound Waves, Researchers Show (NY Times. 814 shares)

Reddit

  1. Samsung confirms the Note 7 is coming back as a refurbished device (The Verge. 7,193 votes)
  2. The Galaxy S8 will be Samsung’s biggest test ever (The Verge. 4,981 votes)

Try it yourself – here’s the query we used for social shares

2. Boxing

We sourced a total of 9,000+ articles categorized under Boxing and found that what goes on outside the ring can garner just as much (if not more) media interest than what happens in it.

Volume of stories published: Boxing

Top stories

The three stories that contributed to the biggest spikes in news publication volumes;

  1. Heavyweight bout between David Haye and Tony Bellew.
  2. Floyd Mayweather urges the UFC to allow him and Conor McGregor to fight.
  3. Middleweight bout between Gennady Golovkin and Daniel Jacobs.

The two biggest fights in world boxing during the month of March are clearly represented by publication spikes in the chart above, particularly the heavyweight clash between Haye and Bellew. However, and as we mentioned, it’s not all about what happens in the ring.

The second largest spike we see above was the result of Floyd Mayweather, who hasn’t fought since September 2015, pleading with the UFC to allow a ‘superfight’ with Conor McGregor to go ahead. Neither Mayweather or McGregor have competed recently, nor have they any future fights scheduled, yet they still find themselves as the two most discussed individuals in this category. The bubble chart below showing the most mentioned topics from the boxing category further highlights this.

Most mentioned topics

Most shared on social media

Facebook

  1. Floyd Mayweather ‘officially out of retirement for Conor McGregor’ fight (FOX Sports. 56,951 shares)
  2. Bad refs, greedy NBF officials frustrating boxers – Apochi (Punchng. 42,367 shares)

Linkedin

  1. David Haye has Achilles surgery after Tony Bellew defeat (BBC. 234 shares)
  2. David Haye rules out retirement as he targets Tony Bellew rematch (BBC. 130 shares)

Reddit

  1. Teenage kickboxer dies after Leeds title fight (BBC. 1,502 shares)
  2. Muhammad Ali family vows to fight Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’ after airport detention (The Independent. 1,147 shares)

3. Stocks

The graph below shows publication volumes in the Stocks subcategory throughout the month of March 2017. In total we collected just over 30,000 articles.

Volume of stories published: Stocks

Top stories

The three stories that contributed to the biggest spikes in news publication volumes;

  1. Retailer Target sees stock drop by 13.5% after consumers boycott their pro-transgender stance.
  2. The US Federal Reserve increases interest rates, adding further pressure to housing market.
  3. Oil drops below US$53 as report shows rising US crude stockpiles

Most mentioned locations

Rather than focusing solely on extracted topics for this category, we thought it would be interesting to separate mentions of both locations and organizations. The chart above shows the most mentioned locations from all 30,000 articles published under the Stocks subcategory in March:

Most mentioned organizations

The chart above shows the top mentioned organizations including well known banks, investment firms and sources. It is interesting to see the likes of Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat in the mix also.

In March we saw Barclays declare Facebook as “the stock to town for the golden age of mobile”, referring to the upcoming 3-5 year period. Earlier in the month, Snapchat closed their first day of public trading up 44% at $24.48 a share.

Most shared on social media

Facebook

  1. Trump’s Approval Rating Hits New Record Low (Slate. 39,582 shares)
  2. Target Retailer Hits $15 Billion Loss Since Pro-Transgender Announcement (Breitbart. 30,107 shares)

Introduction

The landscape of data is ever-changing, meaning analysts need to evolve both their thinking and data collection methods to stay ahead of the curve. In many cases, data that might have been considered unique, uncommon or unattainably expensive just a few years ago is now widely used and often very affordable. It is the analysts who take advantage of these untapped data sources, while they remain untapped, who can reap the rewards by gaining a competitive advantage before the rest of their industry or peers catch on.

This type of data is often referred to as alternative data, and with the ever-increasing levels of data available in the modern world comes the opportunity to gain unique insights, competitive industry advantage, and boosted profits. It is perhaps no surprise then to hear that the scramble to get hold of such data has been dubbed the new gold rush.

With so many of our customers here at AYLIEN using our Text Analysis and News APIs to source and analyze alternative data in the form of unstructured content, we thought we would take a look at this trend to give you an idea of how and why it is becoming so popular and important.

What is alternative data?

Alternative data can be described as data that has been derived from non-traditional sources. Data that can be used to complement traditional data sources to produce improved analytical insights that would otherwise not have been achievable with traditional data alone.

Put simply, it’s data that isn’t commonly being used within a specific industry or use case, but can potentially be used to gain a competitive advantage over those that do not have access to it.

Let’s look at investors as an example. Ask any investor what data source they could not do without and they’ll most likely say it’s their Bloomberg terminal, or a similar device. Bloomberg’s data services enable investors to easily scan financial data that has been generated by thousands of companies. The ubiquity of terminals such as Bloomberg’s means that every investor requires one to be successful. However, it therefore also makes it difficult for investors to gain any sort of competitive advantage, seeing as they’re all receiving the same data, at the same time.

So, how is alternative data being sourced and utilized?

Alternative data in use

To give you an idea of just how significant alternative data can be, and the seemingly endless channels from which it can be sourced, we’re going to look at recent examples involving three brands; Chipotle, GoPro and JCPenney.

1. Chipotle

The CEO of Foursquare, which is a search-and-discovery service mobile app, predicted a 30% drop in Q1 sales for Chipotle, based on footfall data accumulated by their app users. Foursquare could see a drop in customer footfall based on a decrease in their users ‘checking-in’ at Chipotle restaurants, and they were correct.

Screenshot 2017-03-31 at 7.01.03 PMSource: https://medium.com/foursquare-direct/foursquare-predicts-chipotle-s-q1-sales-down-nearly-30-foot-traffic-reveals-the-start-of-a-mixed-78515b2389af#.bycy28hgd

2. GoPro

In November of last year, Wall Street was shocked by the news that GoPro had reported a loss of 60 cents per share on $240.56 million in revenue, after analysts had predicted a far less severe loss of 36 cents per share on $314.06 million in revenue.

While Wall Street never saw this coming, Quandl, a financial data provider were able to foresee the drop in GoPro earnings. In this case, the data came from electronic receipts extracted from over 3 million inboxes. A significant decline in email sales receipts from GoPro’s biggest distribution channel, Amazon, was a key indicator of what was to come. The graph below shows a clear drop in Q3 sales from Amazon, in contrast to other channels;

GoPro revenue estimates by channel

3. JCPenney

When JCPenney reported their Q2 results in 2015, the news came as a surprise to most investors. However, some investors were not surprised at all, because they had been tracking satellite imagery of JCPenney parking lots in near real-time which showed a clear trend in increasing customer footfall.

Screenshot 2017-03-31 at 7.04.18 PMSatellite images of JCPenney parking lots indicated an increase in customer footfall

These three examples show alternative data being sourced from a social app, email receipts and satellite imagery, highlighting the breadth and variety of potential sources that can be explored.

How can NLP and Text Analysis help?

These days we have more data at our fingertips than ever before. One of the main challenges is extracting meaningful insights from it, particularly from vast amounts of unstructured data. Advancements in Natural Language Processing (NLP), Machine Learning and Text Analysis are assisting analysts in exploring data sources that previously would not have been considered worthwhile to their use case or industry.

Here are a few examples:

Social media

Social media channels such as Twitter and Facebook are a gold mine of public opinion and information just waiting to be tapped. If you want to know how the public feels about a specific brand, individual or event, social media offers an easily accessible data source that can be analyzed for trends to help predict consumer behavior.

For example, our sentiment analysis of 1.7 million tweets during last year’s Super Bowl showed Amazon to be the most talk-about brand during the game. Their ad for the Echo also received the highest level of positive sentiment. Result: the Amazon Echo shot up to second place in the bestseller list within a week.

News stories

Highly advanced yet accessible NLP advancements have made it super easy to source and analyze large amounts of news content that can be narrowed down by countless search parameter combinations to deliver precise results to the end-user.

One relevant example we have been seeing among our News API users is the analysis of press releases containing mentions of specific keywords, individuals and companies that are of interest to, for example, an investor.

An investor may have a portfolio of multiple startup companies and may also be keeping a close eye on numerous others. By automatically pulling stories containing mentions of ‘startups’, companies within their own portfolio or companies in a similar area, as soon as they are published, they are accessing the very latest information and can therefore act accordingly and without delay.

Screenshot 2017-03-31 at 5.59.52 PMSearch result from our live News API demo

Some users have even automated their trading process based on press releases, earnings announcements and news of acquisitions.

Customer reviews

The analysis of online customer reviews at scale provides an opportunity for savvy sales professionals and marketers looking to spot a need or weakness in the product or service being reviewed. For example, we analyzed the sentiment of 500 hotel reviews and, using Aspect-Based Sentiment Analysis, we were able to uncover how reviewers felt about specific hotel aspects, such as location, beds, food, staff and WiFi.

As you can see from the charts below, where green = positive and red = negative, the hotel particularly fell down in the areas of beds, WiFi and overall value. As a seller of beds or WiFi solutions, for example, we would find this data extremely useful.

Conclusion

While we’ve merely scratched the surface today we hope we’ve given you a useful and insightful introduction to alternative data and how it is being used more and more to gain competitive advantage in a multitude of use cases and industries.

The end of AlchemyAPI

Since the very beginning we’ve competed head to head with AlchemyAPI. We have always had a lot in common with them; from our initial mission of bringing NLP to the masses to launching features and products with similar goals and objectives. Even though we wouldn’t have admitted it then, we looked up to Alchemy in many ways.

The news of their acquisition by IBM meant a couple of things: 1. Our biggest competitor was going to be incorporated into a much larger platform and ecosystem and 2. The NLP-as-a-service market started to gather even more hype. But more so, the acquisition opened an opportunity for us to gather some of that market share left by the fallout.

What’s happened since then has been interesting. We hear them mentioned less and less in our sales calls and we’ve noticed more and more customers make the move to us over moving to Watson/Bluemix/Knowledge Studio…whatever it is you need to move to 😉

When we ask our ex-AlchemyAPI users why they’ve decided to move to us over sticking with IBM one particular aspect rings true; the experience we provide is better than working with IBM Watson.

When they talk about experience they refer to some key points;

  • Support
  • Developer experience
  • Flexibility
  • Transparent pricing*
  • Ease of use

* I dare you try and figure out how much your monthly spend will be on a Watson service!

The deprecation of the service

Yes all of this was inevitable and to be honest we were surprised it took this long. AlchemyAPI had built a strong brand and for a lot of the reasons mentioned above it made sense for IBM to hold on to that Alchemy branding and to try and win over their user base.

In the last couple of weeks IBM announced they’re going to kill the AlchemyAPI services by deprecating the AlchemyLanguage and AlchemyNews products. It’s being touted as a rebrand and for the most part it is. However, there are some key elements you need to be aware of in both products before you consider making the move to Watson.

So what’s actually happening?

IBM are shutting down two core AlchemyAPI services, AlchemyLanguage and AlchemyNews. As of the 7th of April you can’t create any new instances of either Alchemy service and support will cease on the 7th of April 2018 for both products. IBM’s advice is to switch to one of their other existing services, Watson NLU or Watson Language Classifier for AlchemyLanguage users and the Watson Discovery News service for AlchemyNews users.

As we already mentioned, this was all expected to happen eventually and all seems pretty straightforward, right? Not really…

What you need to know

We’ve been investigating this for the last couple of days and we’re still a little confused as to what a typical migration for users will look like. Figuring out which of the 120+ services on Bluemix you need is hard, deciding which Watson service you should migrate to is confusing  and it’s really not clear what elements of AlchemyAPI they are keeping and what exactly they’re dumping in the bin.

Even though they’ve made the effort to phase out the Alchemy services with the customer in mind, in our opinion they haven’t made working with Bluemix and/or Watson easy from the get go, no matter which service you’re using. This means existing Alchemy users are going to be faced with a number of challenges: changes in pricing, flexibility and accessibility and the deprecation of some core features.

1. Using Watson/Bluemix; have they lost the built-for-developers feel?

Access and ease of use

At AYLIEN we obsess over the “Developer Experience”. We take steps to make it as easy as possible for our users to get up and running with the service. Our documentation is clear, complete and easy to understand and navigate. We provide SDKs for 7 different programming languages. We have a robust and fully functional free product offering and we do everything we can to make even our paid plans accessible to development teams of all shapes and sizes.

The accessibility of our tech is something we feel very strongly about at AYLIEN and that’s something we believe was important to the AlchemyAPI team too. However, it’s difficult to say the same about IBM. We can’t comment on the details of the strategy but from what we hear from speaking with our users and the accessibility of Bluemix and Watson as a whole, things are looking a little grim for developers hoping to use the Watson language services.

  • You need a Bluemix account to access the Watson services which is only available on a 30 day trial
  • For most of the Watson services you’ll only find 3 – 5 SDKs available
  • The pricing structure of many of the Watson services is extremely prohibitive and down right confusing (more on that below)

Flexibility and support

What we hear time and time again from our customers is working with us is just easier. Put simply they don’t want to deal with a beast of an enterprise like IBM. They want to know that if they have a feature request or feedback they’ll be listened to, they don’t want to jump through hoops and engage in a drawn out sales process in order to use the service, they want to know that the tech they’re using is constantly evolving and the team behind it are passionate about advancing it, but above all, they want the reassurance that if something goes wrong they can pick up the phone and talk to someone who cares.

We do everything we can to make sure our customers are getting the most of our APIs. We’ll run on-boarding calls with new users, we consult with our users on how they can integrate with their solutions and from time to time we’ll work directly with our customers to customize existing features to their specific needs. This level of service is only possible because of our ability to stay flexible and agile.

2. Pricing; what’s going to happen your monthly cost?

If you do plan on sitting down to figure out how your cost might change after your move to Watson we recommend grabbing a coffee and snack to get you through it. We have created some comparison tables below to provide a quick overview of some of the savings you can make by migrating to AYLIEN over Watson. They are broken down by service and describe what you should expect to pay as an AlchemyLanguage or AlchemyNews user moving to the Watson services vs what you would pay with AYLIEN.

AlchemyLanguage users

Note: Watson NLU and NLC services are charged on a tiered basis based on the number of Natural Language Units you use. Like our pricing it’s volume based so we were able to compare some price points based on example volumes.

Pricing example:

Hits / NLU units AYLIEN Watson Saving
180,000 $199 $540 $441
1,000,000 $649 $1,500 $851
2,000,000 $649 $2,500 $1,851

AlchemyNews users

Pricing Example:

Note: Watson Discovery News and AYLIEN News API are priced a little differently. Our pricing is based on how many stories you collect and analyze but we don’t care how many queries you make and Watson Discovery News charges per query made plus enrichments. In Watson Discovery News however there is a limit of 50 results (stories) per query which means it’s not too difficult to compare the pricing based on an example number of stories collected.

Stories AYLIEN Watson Saving
100,000 $211 $200 $-11
1,000,000 $1,670 $2,000 $851
2,000,000 $2,871 $4,000 $1,129


– We’re running an Alchemy Amnesty offer –

We know that many of Alchemy’s hardcore fans are looking for an alternative that is just as user friendly and powerful, which is why we’re running an Alchemy Amnesty: we’re giving away 2 months free on any of our plans to any customer moving from AlchemyAPI to AYLIEN. In order to avail of the offer signup here and just drop us an email to sales@aylien.com.

3. Features; what’s going and what’s staying?

The AlchemyLanguage features are being incorporated into Watson NLU and Watson NLC while the AlchemyNews product is being incorporated into a larger product named Watson Discovery News.

As part of the migration however, there are a number of changes to the feature set which we’ve set out below. We’ve only listed the features that are either changing or being canned altogether.

Final thoughts

Users are moving to AYLIEN for a variety of reasons that we outlined above. The primary drivers are ease of use, flexibility, support, feature set and pricing. If you’re dreading making the move to IBM and you miss the experience of dealing with a dev friendly team, we’ve got you covered ;).

Intro

With our News API, our goal is to make the world’s news content easier to query, just like a database. Additionally, we leverage Machine Learning to process, normalize and analyze this content to make it easier for our users to gain access to rich and high quality metadata, and use powerful filtering capabilities that will ultimately help you to source and analyze the most relevant content for your own specific needs.

To this end, we have just launched a couple of cool new features – NOT queries and Canonical URL Extraction. You can read more about these features – which are now also available in our News API SDKs – below.

New feature: NOT queries

Our News API offers the ability to source news content based on a combination of user-defined search parameters. By defining precisely what you want to see within the body, title or metadata of a news story – whether it be specific keywords, entities, sentiment, image/video count or social media performance – our API makes it easy for you to do so.

In many cases, the content you are not sourcing can be just as important as the content you are sourcing.

But what if you want to exclude certain keywords, entities, sentiment, image/video counts or social metrics from your results? In many cases, the content you are not sourcing can be just as important as the content you are sourcing, and this is exactly why we’ve added NOT queries to our News API.

NOT queries give our users the ability to ignore certain stories by adding exclusion rules to almost any parameter when calling the News API.

Here’s an example:

We recently looked at our monthly media round-up using the News API and wanted to uncover how much of the news content published within the Law, Politics & Government category mentioned Donald Trump. By using a NOT query, we immediately rejected all stories within this category that mentioned the US President. The chart below visualizes our results;

Volume of stories published: Law, Government & Politics with/without Trump


The red volume above represents all 163,000+ stories published in this category in February 2017. The yellow volume represents all stories from this category that did not mention Donald Trump. The total: 48,000 stories.

This means that around 70% of all stories in this category mentioned the US President, but more importantly it shows us, in a simple way, how NOT queries can be used to exclude the content we don’t want to see and return only the content that is relevant to our specific use case.

Using NOT queries

Using a NOT query is really quite simple. All you need to do is add an exclamation mark ‘!’ before a parameter. For example, let’s say we do not want to source any stories from the USA;

!source.locations.country[]=US

As another example, we can exclude all stories written by a specific author;

!author.name[]=”Jane Doe”

It really is that simple. Just add the ‘!’ and that parameter will be excluded.

Screen Shot 2017-03-14 at 18.22.46

Naturally, some parameters don’t suit NOT queries. For example sort_by, per_page or sort_direction. To see which parameters support NOT queries, you can always check our News API documentation.

Benefit

The benefit that NOT queries bring is the ability to create more precise search queries than ever before. By combining them with your regular queries, you can create a search that pinpoints content to match your specific requirements.

Put simply, your search queries can now be tailored not only to include exactly what keywords, entities and sources you want, but they can also exclude those that you don’t want – giving you more targeted and relevant results than ever before.

Example query

To show you an example of NOT queries in action, we’re going to search for the following;

Stories with titles containing entity ‘Samsung’ but not mentioning entity ‘Apple’, published in the past day, in the English language.

Here’s our query;

And here’s a sample of what the JSON results for this query look like;


{
  "stories": [
    {
      "id": 30280136,
      "title": "Throwback: Samsung \"Taylor\" Windows Phone Prototype",
      "body": "In mid-2010, I was one of the lucky few to get a prototype Windows phone, the Samsung Taylor. Over six years later, it still works fine. And today, it represents an interesting slice of time in the life of Microsoft’s now-failed but wonderful mobile platform.\n\nAs I recall it, the Taylor was one of two hardware prototypes that Microsoft carted around in early 2010 as it showed off Windows Phone 7 Series, as this platform was first called. Also, there were basically two sets of each, as the software had to be specially—ahem—tailored (I’m here all week, folks) to support the video-out capabilities needed for public demonstrations. So some had the production builds on them, and some were compiled for demo purposes.\n\nMy first hands-on moment with Taylor—and that other Windows phone device, whose name now escapes me, plus of course the Windows Phone OS—came in May 2010, when I visited the Microsoft campus. I was led into a dark basement room in a secret location and was able to spend two days documenting every screen in the system—with photos and via an incredible set of notes—which I used as the basis to start writing the book that became Windows Phone 7 Secrets.\n\nBut I waited two months until I had a phone of my own. Finally, in mid-July, I received a Samsung Taylor from Microsoft, which I could use for my writings about Windows phone, in the book, and on the web. It helped me complete Windows Phone Secrets—which I did in late July, literally the day before my family left for our home swap—and I used the phone internationally on that trip, in Germany and France.\n\nMicrosoft warned me at the time that the device I’d received did not represent shipping hardware, though the underlying software was near-complete. I didn’t care. I was in love.\n\nHere’s how I described it at the time.\n\nWhen Microsoft finally presented me with a Windows Phone prototype that I could take home and use out in the real world, they were curiously embarrassed by the device, which I was told repeatedly didn’t represent “ship quality” hardware, and wasn’t indicative of the thin, light, and gorgeous hardware that’s really going to sell to consumers. They shouldn’t be so down on it. The prototype is fine.\n\nThe developer device is a Samsung Taylor SGH-i707, and it comes with all the hardware one would expect given the Windows Phone 7 required  Microsoft was also apologetic about the device’s screen, which displays at the lower of the two possible Windows Phone 7 resolutions, 480 x 320 (HVGA) instead of 800 x 480 (WVGA). Then you turn the thing on and just laugh out loud—I told you there’d be moments like this—because the display is simply gorgeous. In fact, it’s largely identical to the excellent Zune HD screen, featuring the same resolution and the same superior OLED quality. (The Samsung screen is much bigger than the Zune HD screen, however.) Colors appear to jump off of this screen, and the blacks are so black, they almost appear infinite. Did I mention this was a gorgeous screen? Oh yes. It is.\n\nAs a non-ship-level device, there are ports and plastic covers, and holes all over this device. There’s a huge 5-megapixel camera that sticks out of the back by a tiny amount, another embarrassment to Microsoft. (Hey, it takes great high-resolution photos and video.) The headphone jack and USB connection port both have awful plastic covers that are hard to pry off when you’ve just cut your fingernails. A similar cover appears over the mini-SD slot, though that’s no biggie since no Windows Phone 7 device will ship with such a memory port anyway. (Through a combination of internal and SD-based memory, the prototype sports about 8 GB of storage.)\n\nThere are speakers on the top and bottom of the phone—take that iPhone, and every other Apple mobile product—and, if I’m not mistaken, microphones on both the top and bottom too. Oddly, there’s a front-facing camera that isn’t connected to anything.\n\nAll of the required buttons are present, including Back, Start, and Search across the front, a dedicated power/sleep button on the side, volume up and down and, glory be to God, a camera button. This button is particularly genius, because it connects to a new software feature in Windows Phone that Microsoft calls “pocket to picture.” So even if you’ve locked your phone, you can tap this button and take a picture, almost instantaneously. There’s no fumbling with the device’s lock screen and passcode, and then finding and launching the camera app. You know, like you have to do on an iPhone. Oops, the moment already passed: The story of your life with iPhone.\n\nThe system’s performance is generally amazing. It awakes instantly, of course, and navigation through the various phone UIs is fluid and fast. I have had some performance issues around media playback and Zune software syncing, but then maybe I shouldn’t have been trying to play a 720 x 480 DVD rip of “Avatar” in the first place. (Shocker: It plays.) I haven’t yet had a chance to test any full-screen XNA games, but from what I can see, this should be a decent game player.\n\nI [also] don’t have a firm handle on battery life, and of course we can’t judge Windows Phone on this prototype. In regular usage, the phone doesn’t last the day, basically, and I’ve been leaving it plugged in while writing for the most part. It does have a removable battery, naturally, and because it’s a GSM-type device, I was able to pull out my iPhone 3GS’s SIM and just make the switch. (Irony alert: My iPhone 3GS reports a stronger 3G signal in my house than does the Windows Phone device. I suspect Windows Phone is more accurate given that I’m in a dead zone. And this is after the software update.)\n\nOverall, the prototype isn’t all that interesting aesthetically but then it’s not the car crash that Microsoft seems to believe it is either. Their over-the-top reaction to this device makes me believe that we’re going to see some pretty stunning hardware come this fall’s launch. I can’t wait to see what’s available then.\n\nLooking at it today, the Samsung Taylor is small and stubby, with a very small screen by today’s standards. The little covers on the USB, headphone, and microSD ports remain ridiculous.\n\nThe version of Windows Phone OS on there—6414.PPEscrow, a pre-release version—will never be updated. Microsoft offered to update it to the final shipping version of the OS, but I declined, and the device was subsequently never upgraded to “NoDo,” the first major upgrade. (The one that added Copy and Paste.) The firmware, amusingly, is revision number 1.0.0.0.\n\nThe OS is familiar but dated. It features the empty space next to the Start tiles that bothered so many people and was later removed. Yahoo! Mail is prominently displayed on Start. The store is still called Marketplace, and the Music + Videos hub is still Zune. (As I recall, you had to sync this device with the Zune PC software, as you did with a Zune music player.)\n\nAnyway, I love that this thing still works. And I still feel the pull of that year, when Windows Phone was still new, and special, and full of promise.",

      "body": "As 2016 ends, smartphone enthusiasts have much to look out for in 2017, including flagship smartphones.  Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 are two phones that will determine the companies’ fortunes in the next year as both companies will have something to prove with their phones.\n\nFollowing the Note 7 scandal, Samsung needs the Galaxy S8 to be a success while LG needs to make up for the low sales numbers of the G5 in 2016. Both of the smartphones are expected to come with a slew of rumored features such as an iris scanner and bezel-less displays.\n\nLet’s compare the two and find out, based on rumored features, how they fare:\n\nSecurity Features:  In terms of making your phones secure, both Samsung and LG are doing their bit. While Samsung is expected to endow the Galaxy S8 with a display embedded fingerprint scanner, the LG G6 is expected to come out with an Iris scanner, similar to one on the Galaxy Note 7.\n\nBut LG has lent its own touch to the iris scanner — while Note 7 used a secondary scanner dedicated to iris scanning, LG is expected to combine two cameras in a single module, which will let both function using the same lens, which is expected to enhance the response rate of the camera.\n\nProcessor and RAM: While the S8 is expected to come with a Snapdragon 835 processor with 6/8GB RAM, the G6 is expected to be slightly less powerful with a Snapdragon 830 processor and 4GB RAM.\n\nDisplay: Both phones are expected to flaunt OLED displays with some differences. While the Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to come with an edge-to-edge full OLED display with an all-glass body, the G6 is expected to have a full glass display with a metal back.\n\nWaterproof certification: Both phones are expected to be water-resistant, but while the G6 is expected to have mild water-resistance like the iPhone 7 owing to its modular design, the S8 is expected to highly water-resistant with an IP68 certification.\n\nBoth phones are expected to launch at MWC 2017.",

      "title": "Best Samsung Galaxy S7 cases you can buy right now",
      "body": "For some, covering your brand new Samsung Galaxy S7 in a protective case is like hiding it from the world. While not necessarily true, we get the point: you want to enjoy the stellar design and the smooth edges at all times.\n\nBut, the thing about phones is, they come along with us everywhere. And sometimes, everywhere won't treat the S7 as nicely as you do. In those situations, slapping on a case is a little easier to swallow.\n\nWe've put together a guide to show you the best cases available for the Samsung Galaxy S7. And, while some of the best are manufactured by Samsung itself, there's an ever growing number of other impressive options from companies like Speck and Dog & Bone too.\n\nThese are the cases that do their best not to turn this gorgeous phone into an ugly one. Some of them even provide additional functionality that isn't possible with just the phone alone.\n\nWe're constantly on the lookout for new additions to our roundup, but if you have a favorite, please let us know in the comments.\n\nNote: we've ranked these from cheapest to most expensive according to prices at time of writing.\n\nIf the crop of Samsung Galaxy S7 cases is anything to go by, transparent bumpers are the clear winner. The Crystal Mixx is a fine attempt at see-through security, with its ultra-thin design adding plenty of protection on the corners. The case also raises up towards the top and bottom to guard against screen-down drops.\n\nThe end result is hardly rare on the market, but the Crystal Mixx is pure minimalism.\n\nIt may have cut its teeth by developing military-grade phone cases in the past, but this new case from Griffin is as ultra-thin as it is protective.\n\nCompletely transparent it may be, but the Reveal has tough rubber edges tech-tested to help the S7 survive bumps and drops. Perhaps just as useful is the tactile feel of the Reveal, which makes the Samsung Galaxy S7 a lot easier to hold stably while still being a cinch to slip out of a pocket.\n\nCould do with more color options\n\nNo one wants a case that takes away from the precisely-engineered curves of the Samsung Galaxy S7. But this one actually adds to them. This metallic textured case is shaped like an hourglass and adds a grip onto the sides for added stability.\n\nA wallet case, kickstand and drop proof protector all in one, the MANNA UltraSlim is an intriguing proposition. On the inside there's a soft microfiber lining and a slot for a credit card or two, with prominent corner pads to protect against drops.\n\nOn the outside is a wraparound magnetic clasp, which both closes the case firmly (handy for securing any cards and cash inside) and can be pulled back to act as a kickstand for watching videos. Made from Nappa leather, MANNA UltraSlim is available in brown, red or black.\n\nA SlickWraps Carbon Fiber Skin won't give your Galaxy S7 much drop protection, so if you're accident-prone this isn't the case for you, but it will help protect the phone from scratches, which is especially handy if you keep your handset in a bag or pocket with keys or other jagged belongings. And as a skin it does that without adding much weight or thickness to your phone.\n\nThe carbon fiber design is more than just a pattern too, as it even imitates the texture for a grippy, stylish finish. Understated colors like black and silver are joined by bright orange and pink shades, among others, so there's a lot of choice too.\n\nHas anyone else noticed the plethora of wood-effect cases being worn by pals' smartphones? The curated look is a definite trend that's here tapped into by the WoodBack Snap. Wireless charging compatible, the WoodBack Snap is handmade – laser-cut, actually – from natural wood grain, though still includes the usual cut-outs.\n\nFinished with a blend of vegetable oils and wax, the WoodBack Snap comes in 14 different finishes. Ideal for lumberjacks everywhere.\n\nLike most clear cases, this one from Speck keeps it simple. The unibody case slips over the phone and can protect it from unexpected drops, it even can defend against yellowing with UV protection. Of course being clear it doesn't detract too much from the design of the S7 either, so keep an eye out for it if you're a minimalist.\n\nThese are similar in style to the CandyShell clear case, but Speck also makes some options that are a little more vibrant looking, too. From left to right, there's the standard CandyShell case in black, the Grip case in one of its four assortments of colors and, finally, Speck's Inked variation, which splashes a gorgeous look onto the standard case.\n\nThe Grip version doesn't just add color, but also raised rubber ridges, making it easier to hold on to.\n\nPricey for what it is\n\nSamsung's very own Clear Cover was the most unobtrusive and visually striking case option available at launch and it still stands out now. The clear back allows the Galaxy S7's rounded, glass back to shine, and the metallic bumpers keep it from bursting (hopefully) should you drop it.\n\nHere's another spartan case designed to make the best of the Galaxy S7's sleek look, but the Ghostek Cloak Tough – as its name suggests – has a hard-as-nails aluminum structure inside that surrounds the phone, defending against drops.\n\nAs a defensive bonus, it also includes both a gel-style covering and a separate screen protector.\n\nWhen you're dealing with a phone as beautiful as the Samsung Galaxy S7, usually even the most stylish cases make it slightly uglier, but there's an argument to be made for the Carved Special Edition Engraved series actually improving its looks.\n\nThe rubber bumper is an unfortunate finish, but it barely detracts from the beautiful wood back, engraved with geometric animals. And if animals or geometry aren't your thing, Carved has a selection of other similarly impressive wooden cases with different designs.\n\nThis case for the Galaxy S7 takes the minimalistic look of a clear case and adds a playful strip of color around its edges. It's packed with military-grade toughness, so the phone, from front-to-back, will be protected from unexpected drops.\n\nFor a classy look, check out Samsung's S View case. Like the Clear View case, this one covers the Galaxy S7 from front-to-back, too. But this also complements the S7's design with a slick look that uniformly fits to the phone. Through the square view window, you'll be able to peep every notification without unlocking your device.\n\nDescribed as a 'leatherette' case, this vegan-friendly curvy cover features a neat leather back and a metallic surround. It's a business-like, sophisticated look, but the iGlaze Napa is practical on the inside.\n\nBeneath the raised bezel that protects the Samsung Galaxy S7's 1440 x 2560 pixel screen is a shock-absorbing inner shell attached to a shatterproof polycarbonate casing. Available in Caramel Beige and Onyx Black.\n\nFor those of you who just can't quit the physical QWERTY keyboard, Samsung has done you a real favor. The Galaxy S7 Keyboard case, which is exactly like the one introduced at the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 launch, snaps onto the bottom of the phone and is every frantic texter's dream.\n\nIt definitely cramps the S7's style a bit, but on rare occasions such as these, functionality trumps form.\n\nLooks cheaper than it is\n\nAt the core of this simple bumper case from British brand Tech 21 is the firm's patented FlexShock material, which is designed to absorb and dissipate the shockwaves caused by an S7 dropping to the floor.\n\nAs well as helping to avoid a cracked screen, Evo Elite has a scratch-resistant finish, but otherwise leaves the aesthetics of the Galaxy S7 untouched. Available in gold and brushed black.\n\nCan use phone with screen covered\n\nStill need to open the case for some interactions\n\nOnly provides basic protection when open\n\nWho needs a smartwatch? Here's a product that means you don't even have to get the Samsung Galaxy S7 out of its case to receive or refuse calls, check notifications, or snooze an alarm; a left or right swipe on the dot matrix-style display is all that's needed.\n\nOn this official Samsung case you can also view the time, battery life, incoming calls and messages without opening it. It's also Qi wireless charging compatible.\n\nOnly comes in three colors\n\nThis one is for fans of HTC's Dot Matrix cases, which were originally released for the HTC One M series of smartphones. However, Samsung's new LED cases one-up them in the style department. These cases are more professional looking, but allow you the same level of gesture-controlled access, all without opening up the case.\n\nSimilar in many ways to Samsung's Clear View Cover, this arguably tops it thanks to a leather finish and eye-catching LED display.\n\nNot as tough as some OtterBox cases\n\nOtterBox is a big name in tough, rugged smartphone cases, but while its covers are known for being some of the best in the business at keeping your handset safe, they’re not generally thought of as stylish. The Strada series is an exception.\n\nThis case is made of genuine leather, in black, blue or red, with a magnetic metal latch to keep the front flap folded over the screen for full body protection.\n\nAnd speaking of protection, that hasn’t been overly compromised to deliver a stylish finish. This has still been put through the company’s exhaustive tests and has energy-absorbing materials on the inside, to ensure it can survive a drop.\n\nIt’s perhaps not quite as life-proof as the OtterBox Defender, but it’s sleeker, looks better, and even has a handy card slot built-in.\n\nSo the Galaxy S7 isn't stylish enough for you? Adorned with genuine crystal and with a metallic surround, Case-Mate's Brilliance is all about catching the light and making a statement.\n\nActually, there's more to it than that, with an interior layer of plastic adding some impact resistance and shock dispersion; we'll drink to that.\n\nWhile not the most appealing case out there, Samsung's Backpack combines an external battery and case into one. The case itself is stocked with a 3,400mAh battery that will kick in when the Galaxy S7 depletes.\n\nIt also supports wireless charging, and when it's on the cradle, it intelligently prioritizes charging the device back to good health before taking a sip of electricity for itself.\n\nThese are ordered by price at the time of writing - however, some variation may occur over time!",

          "If the crop of Samsung Galaxy S7 cases is anything to go by, transparent bumpers are the clear winner.",
          "A SlickWraps Carbon Fiber Skin won't give your Galaxy S7 much drop protection, so if you're accident-prone this isn't the case for you, but it will help protect the phone from scratches, which is especially handy if you keep your handset in a bag or pocket with keys or other jagged belongings.",
          "Here's another spartan case designed to make the best of the Galaxy S7's sleek look, but the Ghostek Cloak Tough – as its name suggests – has a hard-as-nails aluminum structure inside that surrounds the phone, defending against drops.",
          "When you're dealing with a phone as beautiful as the Samsung Galaxy S7, usually even the most stylish cases make it slightly uglier, but there's an argument to be made for the Carved Special Edition Engraved series actually improving its looks.",
          "The Galaxy S7 Keyboard case, which is exactly like the one introduced at the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 launch, snaps onto the bottom of the phone and is every frantic texter's dream."

Samsung’s export revenues this year are estimated to increase 7 per cent despite the Note 7 incident.\n\nSamsung’s fourth quarter financial report revealed that Note 7 incident had an insignificant short term impact on Samsung Vietnam’s business and export turnover in 2016.\n\nAccording to its third quarter financial report announced on September 30th, Samsung Electronics Viet Nam in Bac Ninh reported a 30 per cent decline in revenue, equivalent to more than VNĐ32 trillion against the previous quarter.\n\nSamsung’s representative yesterday told Viet Nam News that it has suffered a short-term impact from the Note 7 incident. Samsung Electronics Viet Nam (SEV) – the main Note 7 production unit bore the brunt of the impact.\n\n“Shorty after we decided to stop producing the Note 7 and adjust the production line, the production and business performance returned to normal and we witnessed a rapid recovery. SEV and SEVT are producing a wide range of products including S7, S7 Edge, Galaxy A, Galaxy J, as well as Tablet models, in addition to the Note 7,” he added.\n\nSamsung Electronics HCM City CE Complex (SEHC) also expected export revenue of $1.4 billion this year, increasing 180 per cent from last year. SEHC became operational in June with total investment of $2 billion. The complex has focused on research and development as well as production of high-end TVs, washing machines, refrigerators and air conditioners.\n\nLee Sangsu, SEHC’s general director said the project became one of Samsung’s four biggest consumer electronics production plants worldwide. The project has been one of the most important factories in Samsung’s global TV supply chain.\n\nTotal export turnover of Samsung Electronics in Vietnam, including the three factories, was estimated at $36.4 billion, or a 9.3 per cent increase from last year.\n\nBy the middle of this month, the country’s total export revenue was $167.83 billion. Of which, mobile phones and spare parts took the lead in terms of export revenue at $33 billion. The products’ export revenue for the whole year was expected to reach $35 billion, accounting for 20 per cent of the country’s total export revenue.\n\nSamsung Viet Nam in October announced the recall of its Galaxy Note7 smartphone after reports of the device catching fire while charging. As one of Samsung’s biggest production centres, Viet Nam was expected to be affected by the massive recall as the country has supplied around 35 per cent of the producer’s mobile phones around the world.",

      "title": "Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ Catches Fire After Being Kept For Overnight Charging, Samsung Offers Replacement",
      "body": "The bad phase for Samsung doesn’t seem to show any signs of coming to an end. In yet another headache for Samsung, a Reddit user has claimed that his Samsung device exploded and went up in flames while the handset was kept on a nightstand for overnight charging. According to 9To5Google, the handset in this particular instance has been identified as an older Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+. While the model was originally released back in August 2015, it is unclear how old the handset involved in this incident actually was.\n\nIn the Reddit post, the user, only identified by his username ReturnThroughAether wrote;\n“Woke up this morning (yesterday technically. 12/20) just in time to get ready for work and looked over to find my phone has exploded. Luckily I don’t keep it on my bed, as you can see it scorched my night stand. I’ve talked to Samsung and my carrier. The phone had no problems before, no overheating. I think I’m done with Samsung for a while, really gonna miss the photos I had from Africa in the fall. Dammit Samsung, I was still in your corner after the Note 7 stuff too.”\nThe man later updated his post confirming that he was in touch with Samsung regarding the incident. He also went on to add that Samsung is offering a replacement device and compensation for his burnt nightstand. However, Samsung has demanded that the phone be sent to them for evaluation purposes. The owner replied that he was interested in retaining the device as per the suggestion of an attorney who came forward and offered him assistance.\nThe explosion and the fire burnt the nightstand claims the Samsung Galaxy s6 Edge+ owner\nThis is what the updated post read;\n“These are my notes from a phone call that just transpired from Samsung.\nSamsung called. David. Confirming reddit post and events. Probably charged 1-3 hours when it popped. Can offer a replacement if I ship them device, compensation for table. Can only offer a resolution if I send in device and after evaluation. Offered expedited service once it’s in. Call ended with them offering to send a return box to my address and my informing them that I was interested in retaining the device after speaking with an attorney that offered assistance.”\n\nThe news of this Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ exploding and catching fire comes barely a week after we reported that Samsung could finally reveal the actual reason behind the multiple cases of explosions and fire that led to the recall and the eventual cancelation of the company’s flagship phablet for 2016 – the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Samsung had earlier this year promised that they would reveal the cause behind the battery fires once their internal investigation was completed.\nAn image posted by the owner of the burnt Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ on image sharing Imgur [Image by ReturnThroughAether/ Imgur]\nThe Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was supposed to be the latest and greatest device from the South Korean smartphone giant. Packed with the latest processors and the best hardware available, it was supposed to be a worthy successor to its predecessor – the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. However, within weeks of its release, there were several reports from people who claimed that the phones were exploding out of the blue. Initially, most dismissed these incidents as one-off cases. However, faced with an ever increasing flow of cases, Samsung finally admitted that the Note 7 had a manufacturing defect with its battery. However, the also added that only a certain batch was affected by the problem and that they would replace all the possibly defective versions with new ones.\nJust when everyone thought the note 7 saga was coming to a close, a second wave of explosions and fire incidents were reported from handsets that were replaced by Samsung. One handset also exploded on board an aircraft following which there was a ban on carrying the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on board any aircraft in the U.S. Once it became clear that the Samsung Note 7 battery issue was far more widespread than what was initially thought, the company decided to halt the production and take the product off the shelves.\n[Featured image by ReturnThroughAether/ Imgur]",

      "title": "Samsung Galaxy S8 Rumor Claims That It Might Come With A Feature Called 'Beast Mode'",
      "body": "It’s been discovered that Samsung has trademarked the term “Beast Mode” in the European Union. This has led to speculations that the South Korean phone maker is planning to add that feature to the Galaxy S8 in 2017.\n\nAlthough Samsung hasn’t revealed the specifications for the Galaxy S8, the handset is rumored to come with Qualcomm’s most powerful processor the Snapdragon 835 or the company’s own next-generation Exynos processor. Both of those chipsets will be built using the 10nm process, the same tech that Apple is believed to be using for the iPhone 8 next year.\n\nQualcomm is also believed to be working alongside Samsung in developing the Snapdragon 835, possibly making the Galaxy S8 the only smartphone capable of taking advantage of the chip’s full potential, according to Inquisitr.\n\nThis is where the rumored Beat Mode feature comes in. Samsung filed an application with the EU to trademark the term earlier this month. Part of the trademark application details that Beast Mode will cover all of Samsung’s devices including smartphones, mobile phones, application software and all of its computers, as pointed out by Forbes.\n\nAlthough there’s no official explanation as to what Beat Mode actually is, rumors indicate that turning on Beast mode on the Galaxy S8 will allow the processor to perform to its maximum power, according to Android Headline. This would be somewhat an extension to Android Nougat’s Performance Mode where users are able to choose from four presets of high performance.\n\nBy turning on Beast Mode on the Galaxy S8, this will also turn off power-saving features. Users will  be trading longer battery life for the best possible performance of the Snapdragon 835 or the new Exynos processor. If this is really what Samsung’s Beast Mode is for, the Galaxy S8 could possibly outperform the iPhone 8. Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones have never outperformed Apple’s iPhones, and Beast Mode appears to be the South Korean manufacturer’s way of finally changing that, as pointed out by BGR.\n\nRight now, Beast Mode on the Galaxy S8 is all speculation. However, it wouldn’t be all too surprising for Samsung to do everything it can to redeem itself from the Galaxy Note 7 disaster.",

      "body": "Samsung has indicated plans to update the Galaxy S7 directed to Android 7.1.1 Nougat upon its official availability. However, this directive won’t apply for all models. New reports indicate the Galaxy S7 for Australian carrier Vodafone will update to the Android 7.0 Nougat system version.\n\nReports from last week indicated Vodafone is currently testing the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge for Android Nougat. Now more recent details from the carrier confirm that Samsung will roll out Android 7.1.1 to S7 handsets in other markets, but Vodafone’s models will get Android 7.0. There is no word on why Vodafone has decided on this option. However, with the Android Nougat software already with the carrier, it could mean a speedier update for those Galaxy S7 models.\n\nCurrently, Samsung is running its fourth version of Android Nougat beta software on the Galaxy S7. The software includes a number of tweaks specific to Samsung devices. The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge could begin updating to Android Nougat as early as mid-December for some models. Most models are expected to update in early 2017.\n\nThe Samsung Galaxy S7 features a 5.1-inch (S7 Edge, 5.5-inch dual-curved) Quad HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, a 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB internal storage options with expandable storage up to 256GB, a 12-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera, both with f/1.7 aperture and a 3,000mAh battery (S7 Edge, 3,600mAh).",

      "body": "It looks like Samsung’s mobile woes are going to somewhat fall on its mobile employees this year — despite beginning the year with a bang thanks to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, the Galaxy Note 7 debacle has lost Samsung millions of dollars. So how does Samsung plan on easing the financial trouble? Apparently with a cut to its employees’ bonuses, according to a report from SamMobile.\n\nThe bonus cut isn’t totally unexpected. Samsung offers its employees performance incentives, which is a reward program that gives employees as much as 50 percent of their annual salaries as a bonus if that division falls within 20 percent of the company’s excess profits. The bonus percentage for the mobile division, it seems, has been reduced from 50 percent to 17 percent.\n\nSamsung employees in the mobile division have been receiving the maximum 50 percent bonuses for the past few years thanks to strong smartphone sales. According to the SamMobile report, this is the first time in six years that the bonus falls under the 20 percent mark.\n\nIt’s important to note that Samsung has not confirmed the information, but it would not be surprising if it turned out to be true — the Galaxy Note 7 was supposed to be Samsung’s time to shine but as you are probably aware, the device ended up being the source of a nightmare for the company. After the Galaxy Note 7 started shipping, reports began to surface saying that some units were catching fire while they charged, causing Samsung to issue a recall and replace phones with new ones. The only issue with that? The replacement phones began catching fire too, prompting a total recall of all Galaxy Note 7 phones in exchange for a full refund.",

      "title": "Comment: Can we stop freaking out every time a Samsung phone explodes?",
      "body": "Every day we walk around with potential death-traps in our pockets ─ they’re called our smartphones. Each and every smartphone ever made has the potential to explode, and sometimes they do. For the most part, the batteries in our smartphones are safe. So why does everyone suddenly care whenever a smartphone does explode? The Galaxy Note 7.\n\nEarlier this year, Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 7 which, by any normal measurement, was its best smartphone ever. It packed powerful specs, all the features we could ever want, a pleasing design, and software that was finally good. Overall, it truly was a great smartphone, until they started exploding…\n\nA few weeks after launch, reports starting coming in that Note 7 units were exploding due to its battery, but the cause was and still is completely unknown. As the issue escalated, Samsung decided to issue a recall on all units that had been sold up to that point. From there, the company assured customers that the replacement Galaxy Note 7 units would be safe and marked as such. Long story short, they weren’t.\n\nOne infamous morning, a report came out that a replacement Galaxy Note 7 had caught fire while on a (thankfully grounded) flight. Then, another replacement exploded, and another, and so on and so forth. At that point, Samsung had no choice but to kill the Note 7, recalling all units that had been sold worldwide. Now, because of this whole debacle, everyone is freaking out any time a Samsung smartphone explodes.\n\nThis morning, a user report hit Reddit from a Galaxy S6 Edge+ user whose device exploded overnight due to a ruptured battery cell. He states that the device was plugged into an official charging brick and cable, but it still exploded overnight.\n\nWoke up this morning (yesterday technically. 12/20) just in time to get ready for work and looked over to find my phone has exploded. Luckily I don’t keep it on my bed, as you can see it scorched my night stand. I’ve talked to Samsung and my carrier. The phone had no problems before, no overheating. I think I’m done with Samsung for a while, really gonna miss the photos I had from Africa in the fall. Dammit Samsung, I was still in your corner after the Note 7 stuff too.\n\nWhile it’s unfortunate that this user had his device explode, it’s not a reason to freak out, nor a reason to be “done with Samsung.” This is the danger with any and all smartphones, not just Samsung and even including Apple. I’m not saying it’s not a problem that phones explode. But it happens sometimes, even though at this point, it definitely shouldn’t.\n\nThis problem is partly thanks to the way lithium batteries work. Lithium-ion batteries are designed to pack more power into a smaller space compared to other battery technologies. To do that, it relies on three main components: a positively charged cathode (made from metal), a negatively charged anode (made from graphite), and a lithium electrolyte which enables the electric charge to flow. In order to work, the cathode and anode need to be physically separated, typically with a thin piece of plastic, a piece which continues to get thinner and thinner as our devices do. That also means that these batteries continue to get more delicate, which means any external damage to the device can damage the battery which can cause a short circuit, which can, in turn, cause the device to explode.\n\nSo in short, a device is never completely safe from exploding, but it’s not likely either, especially if that device is using official charging accessories and hasn’t been damaged. Cases like the one from today are rare, and there’s only one reason we’re even noticing them. Since the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco got so much attention, device explosions are on people’s minds, so everyone’s noticing these as well. It’s a phenomenon known as the frequency illusion.\n\nGranted, all the bad press should help motivate smartphone makers make safety a great concern with upcoming releases — so it’s not all bad — but let’s not freak out every time it happens. Just be happy that no one gets hurt.",

Given their industry rivalry, Samsung and Apple are often mentioned together in news stories. In this example, we source stories that only mention Samsung. By excluding stories mentioning Apple, we are significantly increasing the likelihood that our results will contain stories that are specifically about Samsung, rather than simply mentioning the brand, perhaps in a comparison to Apple, for example.

For more information on NOT queries, check out our News API documentation.

New feature: Canonical URL extraction

There is a wealth of information hidden in the contents and the markup of news story web pages that can be extremely useful to news content aggregators and app developers.

One such example of this useful information is canonical URLs.

What are Canonical URLs?

A canonical URL is an HTML element that helps webmasters prevent duplicate content issues by specifying the preferred (or “canonical”) version of a web page as part of search engine optimization (SEO).

It can be described as the search-engine-friendly URL that webmasters want the likes of Google, Bing and Baidu to treat as authoritative, when a number of copies of the same story exist on a publisher’s website.

The URL of a web page that a visitor can see depends on the structure of the site and the path the visitor takes to reach it. For example, a product may be categorized as both food and fitness and therefore can be accessed from each category folder, with different URLs;

www.myexampleshop.com/food/productA

www.myexampleshop.com/fitness/productA

While this is a simple example, numerous URLs bring added complexity and concerns around duplicate content. By telling search engines which URL is the ‘main’ or ‘original’ URL, it can be indexed accordingly.

Why extract canonical URLs?

Because the canonical URL is the preferred or main URL, it is the most likely to remain active or unchanged. In extracting this URL, rather than a feedproxy permalink for example, you are increasing your chances of maintaining a URL record that will not change or expire in time.
