This Programming Language Can Open Up Banking's Best Jobs

If you want to learn Q, one person to know is Nick Psaris, a New York-based developer at Bank of America who describes himself as “passionate about using and teaching kdb+ to transform businesses,” and who just wrote a book titled, “A Functional Introduction to Machine Learning in Q.” You can find Psaris’ Github page here.

Q is its query language, while K is the language behind KDB, which breaks down into K and Data Base plus.

In 2017, eFinancialCareers (Dice’s sister site) noted that KDB+ was the database system used by banks, hedge funds, and high-frequency trading houses looking for fast data extraction and analytics.

For those in the know, the languages you really want to know in finance are K and Q, the languages that go with the KDB database.

In October last year, Arthur Whitney, the Canadian computer scientist who invented the K and Q languages and developed the KDB database, launched Shakti, a new high-speed data platform with a Python interface.

How CRISPR is helping scientists create a better coronavirus test

She had long been working on applying CRISPR to diagnostics via her lab at Berkeley, as well as companies she co-founded, Caribou Biosciences and Mammoth Biosciences — with the latter now developing a COVID test.

The test Mammoth has created uses CRISPR technology, but rather than programming a protein to find a bit of gene to cut out, it detects it.

There’s another benefit to developing CRISPR diagnostics: Doudna says that if a Sars-Cov-2 test works, it should work on other viruses, meaning all the frantic effort to create these diagnostic tools will be of benefit in the next pandemic, whenever it lands.

Researchers at Stanford University were working on ways to use CRISPR to fight influenza, but pivoted to coronavirus when the pandemic hit, pairing a virus-killing enzyme with guide RNA in an effort to meddle with genetic code in SARS-COV-2, in the hopes of preventing it from replicating.

For Covid-19, the faster pace of CRISPR diagnostic development and regulatory approval could give us at-home tests that don’t need to be sent away to the lab — giving us an answer in minutes if we’re infected, letting us get back to work, travel, and whatever else we’re missing in lockdown.

Fox News dominated primetime ratings for COVID summer — not just on cable, but all of TV.

That's higher than: CBS with 3.28 million NBC with 2.97 million ABC with 2.6 million Fox Broadcasting with 1.38 million Fox News also edged out major sporting events in the ratings, including the second round of the NBA playoffs, the PGA Tour Championship Final, the Belmont Stakes, and the US Open for tennis, according to the Nielsen ratings for P2+ viewers (shorthand in the industry for "persons aged two or more").

Opinion hosts like Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson, and even the early evening show The Five" secured more viewers than several major sporting events, including second round of the NBA playoffs, the PGA Tour Championship Final, the Belmont Stakes, and the US Open for tennis.

Fox's primetime lineup — which includes Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham — averaged 3.5 million viewers per night, beating out the return of sports and other big programming on mainstay channels like ABC, CBS, and NBC.

Fox News was the most watched channel on all of American TV from Memorial Day to Labor Day, topping all of the major networks, even with their advantage of being in more households, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Primetime hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham have been putting up huge ratings to carry the network to the top over the summer, particularly with Carlson cracking three and four million viewers per night following the death of George Floyd and the subsequent nationwide protests for Black Lives Matter.

Netflix's Cindy Holland Exits in Major TV Shakeup

Holland joined the company when it was in its DVD-by-mail days in 2002, helping to transform the service as it ventured into originals with major hits like Orange is the New Black that helped put Netflix on the map as the original programming powerhouse it has since become.

The shift to put Netflix’s originals in Bajaria’s hands underscores the growing importance of local language originals and unscripted programming in Netflix’s future plans, and it also marks the departure of one of the most seasoned television veterans at Netflix.

Bajaria, the former president of Universal TV, has been leading the charge at some of Netflix’s crucial growth areas: local-language original programming, which has helped Netflix hit 193 million global subscribers.

As part of the restructure, Bela Bajaria, Netflix’s vp of local language originals, is being elevated to vice president of global TV, where she will oversee all television projects for the streaming giant, including English and local language originals, scripted and unscripted shows and limited series.

Cindy Holland, Netflix’s vp of original content who has been with the streaming giant for nearly two decades, will leave the company in October in a major shakeup, as newly appointed co-CEO Ted Sarandos moves to streamline the company’s television operations.

Tenet’ to screen early at theaters in some U.S. cities

Early domestic screenings of “Tenet” will be scheduled on the evenings of Aug. 21, Sept. 1 and Sept. 2 where theaters are open in the U.S. Tickets go on sale Friday.

“And there could be no better film to welcome audiences back to a true big-screen experience than ‘Tenet.

It’s arrival could not come soon enough for the ailing theaters, many of which are opening this week without any significant new movies and instead programming popular back catalog films like “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Back to the Future” to entice audiences.

“Tenet” is the first major new Hollywood movie to be released in theaters since most locations shuttered in mid-March.

Warner Bros. on Tuesday said that it would be offering early access screenings starting Aug. 31 as a gesture of support to the domestic theaters that are reopening after five months of being closed because of COVID-19.

Computer scientist Frances Allen, known for her work on compiling, dies at 88

IBM said in an appreciation that Allen made seminal contributions to programming and compiler research.

Allen helped build an experimental compiler for IBM’s Advanced Computing system, and from 1980 to the mid-1990s, she headed a research team at IBM working on the new concept of parallel computing, which became widely used in personal computers.

In a 2002 New York Times profile, Allen said there was much initial skepticism of Fortran and how effective it could be in making computer programming easier and more efficient, which was a main focus of her career.

Allen also served as IBM’s language liaison with the National Security Agency, where she helped design and build Alpha, which IBM describes as “a very high-level code breaking language which featured the ability to create new alphabets beyond the system defined alphabets.”

A strong supporter of mentoring other women in programming, Allen was inducted into the Women in Technology International Hall of Fame and received the Augusta Ada Lovelace Award from the Association for Women in Computing, according to IBM.

Brave New World: Meet the International Streamers Battling Netflix With Local Originals

For the better part of the past decade, broadcasters around the world have seen their numbers erode as viewers turn their backs on mid-budget local programs and acquisitions from U.S. networks and gravitate toward sexy, boundary-breaking dramas with universal appeal from the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime.

They’re betting big on the power of local — and it’s a gamble they can’t afford to lose.

Variety has partnered with U.K.-based consultancy Ampere Analysis to delve into the top local and regional ad-supported and pay TV services in the Middle East (Shahid VIP), India (ALTBalaji), Australia (Stan), France (OCS), Germany (Joyn) and the U.K. (ITV Hub) — all of which aim to provide complementary alternatives to global players.

Most recognize they can’t go toe-to-toe with the giants on billion-dollar budgets for original programming — and they don’t want to.

In many ways, they have what Netflix and Amazon Prime still lack: a rich history with their customers and an inimitable understanding of local ecosystems.

Russian cyberspies are attempting to steal coronavirus vaccine information

By the late 1990s, Russian cyberespionage had grown to include the multi-year “Moonlight Maze” intrusions into U.S. military and other government computers, foretelling the massive espionage from Russia today.

And Russian hackers defaced U.S. websites during the Kosovo conflict, portending Russia’s extensive use of disruptive and damaging cyberattacks.

Russia has many skilled cyberoperators, and for good reason: Their educational system emphasizes information technology and computer science, more so than in the U.S. Every year, Russian schools take a disproportionate number of the top spots in the International Collegiate Programming Contest.

Indeed, the cyberespionage groups dubbed APT28 (aka Fancy Bear) and APT29 (aka Cozy Bear and The Dukes) are believed to correspond to Russia’s military intelligence agency GRU and its state security organization FSB, respectively.

Analyst Sarah Geary at cybersecurity firm FireEye reported that the hackers “disseminate propaganda on behalf of Moscow, develop cybertools for Russian intelligence agencies like the FSB and GRU, and hack into networks and databases in support of Russian security objectives.”

The final factor is that no matter what Hastings's title is (CEO or co-CEO), he's the founder and the symbolic leader of the company.

And if Hastings were thinking that after 23 years he might like to start thinking about life after Netflix, it might make sense to name a co-CEO now.

Sarandos has been at Netflix for 20 years, and he's credited with pushing the company to create its own programming hits, rather than rely on being a distributor for shows and movies produced by other companies.

Netflix is an unusual company, so perhaps it will prove an exception, but longtime readers of this column will know that I think the co-CEO model is usually kind of an insane idea.

Because on Thursday, Netflix announced that its chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, would become co-CEO, along with Hastings.
