Great balance between big-company security and fun, fast-moving projects

Pros: * If you're a software engineer, you're among the kings of the hill at Google. It's an engineer-driven company without a doubt (that *is* changing, but it's still very engineer-focused). * The perks are amazing. Yes, free breakfast, lunch, an dinner every weekday. Aaaaaamazing holiday parties (at Waldorf Astoria, NY Public Library, MoMA, etc.); overnight ski trips to Vermont; overnight nature trips to the Poconos in the summer; summer picnics at Chelsea piers; and on and on and on. I don't see this going away unless the company starts hurting financially. * Speaking of which, the company is doing quite well, which reflects in bonuses and equity grants. * There a huge diversity of work ranging from defending independent journalism worldwide (Google Project Shield) to crisis response during disasters (see Maps during Hurricane Sandy or Tsunamis), to the best machine learning experts and projects in the world, to more mundane revenue-driving projects in advertising, there's really something for everybody. * It's easy to move around within the company as long as you're in good standing (the vast majority of engineers are). * The company is amazingly open: every week Larry Page and Sergey Brin host what's called TGIF where food, beer, wine, etc. is served, a new project is presented, and afterward there's an open forum to ask the executives anything you want. It's truly fair game to ask anything, no matter how controversial, and frequently the executives will be responsive. * No, nobody cares if you use an iPhone, Facebook, shop with Amazon, stream using Spotify, or refuse to use Google+. The company is amazingly open and flexible. Neither pro nor con, but general information on work-life balance, promotions, and advancement. * Work life balance can be what you want it to be on most teams. (Some teams are in more competitive sectors and require more crazy hours all the time - but very few of them). If you do what's expected, you'll be fine at least for a handful of years. Working a roughly 40 hour work week is possible, and many people do it. There are also people who are hyper-motived and work like crazy just because they love it, or because they're competitive, or they want to get a promotion. If you work 40 hour weeks without putting in anything extra, you'll fall behind them as they advance and you stand still - and maybe that doesn't matter, so it works out for everybody. But at least know where you would realistically stand. * If you excel and work your butt off, you'll be compensated and promoted. If you let yourself be a code monkey, and just sit coding with your head down all day, you'll be fine but won't advance. A big complaint from some Googlers is about not being able to advance "even at Google" with pure coding. Sure, if you're the uber genius who created MapReduce and Bigtable, you're going to advance like a rocket without having to do anything but coding; but if you're like most engineers at Google -- smarter than average, but just average compared to other Googlers -- you're just a good coder and not revolutionary. Code monkeys are important to actually get stuff done, and to be sure you absolutely need to be a good coder as a software engineer (it's the minimum requirement), but code monkeys won't advance because they're not leaders and they're easy to replace. To get promoted you need to lead and do more than just code. There are plenty of ways to lead other than being an official tech lead, so this isn't actually _that_ hard, so the real point is just that you can't just sit there coding what other people tell you to code all day and expect to advance.

Cons: * It *is* becoming larger, and with it comes growing pains: bureaucracy, slow to respond to market threats, bloated teams, cross-divisional tension (though nothing remotely approaching that of Microsoft's internal tension). * The quality of the engineers is possibly dropping, but possibly not. It's hard to get real metrics, because as the absolute number of people grows, naturally the number of bad apples grows; as a percentage it's supposedly the same as it ever was, but with larger numbers of poorer quality engineers it just _feels_ like things might be changing for the worse. * Also with growth means more internal-confidential data leaks (again, because of the raw numbers of people) -- product announcements being ruined, etc. That means the company has to be tighter-lipped internally to avoid leaks, which makes things less open. It's still an amazingly open place, but less so than it was even a couple years ago. The good thing is they recognize it and actively look to improve things because they know how important it is to keep the good culture.

Sound like a cool place to work?

  • WE BELIEVE IN A WORLD WHERE ALL IDEAS HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SUCCEED.

    Black Girl Ventures works to create access to capital for Black and Brown women founders. The BGV Pitch Competition flips the traditional pitch competition on its head: we allow the audience to donate, eliminate the panel of judges, and empower the community (audience) to ask questions and vote for the winner. Donations are optional. Our partners include Google Cloud for Startups, HubSpot for Startups, Made by Google, AARP Innovation Labs, and Shulman Rogers.

    How does this work?

    • RSVP

    • Attend the event. 

    • Listen to dynamic women pitch their businesses. 


    • Vote with your dollars. Donate from $5+ to the idea you favor. Your donations go to the women!

    • All 8 women receive seed funding and/or resources for their business based on your donations.  


    The first place winner will receive over $5,000 in cash and prizes including:

    Pitch participants must identify as women and Black or Brown. However,  audience participation is NOT specific to race, gender, creed or identity. Apply to pitch.


    Light food and drinks will be served. [Please bring a valid ID]

    This event is open to the public.  

    We believe that the future of inclusion is NOT to create more silos, but that we can be leaders for Black/Brown women and everyone can help us do that. Everyone can cheer on and advocate for women founders at BGV!

    Even if you're unavailable to attend you can support women entrepreneurs by donating. The Black Girl Ventures Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization. All donations are charitable donations. 

    Please note: There will be photography and videography at this event for promotional purposes. Your RSVP is an acknowledgment of photography and videography.

    Class Curriculum:

    Why do I need WiFi for Barcode and Object Recognition?

    Cyber Eyez uses services provided by Google for barcode lookup and object identification. Our barcode scanner is powered by Google shopping on the backend so it recognizes over 100 million products right out of the box! But to reach Google, we need WiFi. The Google Online Object Recognition Mode uses the Google Vision API to analyze the picture and identify the objects in it. Google sends the information back to Cyber Eyez and reads it back. As Google’s object recognition gets better, so does Cyber Eyez.

    How do I access Barcode mode?

    With your Cyber Eyez Gear VR on, swipe up or down until you hear “Changed to Barcode Mode” and see the tile labeled Barcode Mode on the screen. Barcode mode is one swipe down from Microsoft Online Text Reader and one swipe up from Google Online Object Recognition.

    Practice rotate and capture in barcode mode

    During this time, encourage the students to find objects near them with a barcode on it. Have them put the object at a comfortable distance in front of the device with their left hand and long tap on the swipe pad to take a picture when the barcode is in frame. If the barcode is recognized the result will be read back in a few seconds depending on the WiFi network speed.

    How do I access Google Online Object Recognition mode?

    With your Cyber Eyez Gear VR on, swipe up or down until you hear “Changed to Google Online Object Recognition Mode” and see the tile labeled Google Online Object Recognition Mode on the screen. Google Online Object Recognition Mode is one swipe down from Barcode mode and one swipe up from Color assistant.

    Practice capture in Google Online Object Recognition mode

    During this time, encourage the students to look around their environment at different objects, rooms and scenarios and take pictures. Hold objects close, take distance pictures, pictures inside, outside, as many varieties as you can.

    Class Curriculum

    Why do I need WiFi for Barcode and Object Recognition?

    Cyber Eyez uses services provided by Google for barcode lookup and object identification. Our barcode scanner is powered by Google shopping on the backend so it recognizes over 100 million products right out of the box! But to reach Google, we need WiFi. The Google Online Object Recognition Mode uses the Google Vision API to analyze the picture and identify the objects in it. Google sends the information back to Cyber Eyez and reads it back. As Google’s object recognition gets better, so does Cyber Eyez.

    How do I access Barcode mode?

    1. Long press #1 to bring up your menu

    2. Short press #1 until you hear Barcode mode

    3. Short press #3. You will hear, “Changed to Barcode Mode”

    Practice rotate and capture in barcode mode

    During this time, encourage the students to find objects near them with a barcode on it. Have them hold the object very close to the glasse and slowly pull it away. Cyber Eyez will search the image for barcodes automatically, so no need to take a picture. As soon as the barcode is recognized the result will be displayed on a web browser screen and read back in a few seconds depending on the WiFi network speed. To get back to Cyber Eyez, long press #3.

    How do I access Google Online Object Recognition mode?

    1. Long press #1 to bring up the menu

    2. Short press #1 until you hear “Object Recognition”

    3. Object Recognition has a sub-menu, so short press #3 to open the sub-menu.


    The first option is Offline Object Recognition mode. Short press #1 to scroll down to Google Online mode or Back to go back to the main menu. Short press #3 to select Google Online mode.

    Practice capture in Google Online Object Recognition mode

    During this time, encourage the students to look around their environment at different objects, rooms and scenarios and take pictures. Hold objects close, take distance pictures, pictures inside, outside, as many varieties as you can.

    Class Curriculum:

    Intro

    Make sure each client has their device and that it is on, connected to WiFi and ready and that they have printed out or brought their documents that they will be using for the training.

    Invert Colors and Adjust White Balance

    To adjust for your eyes and your condition you can adjust the screen to have different color and effect modes to help as much as possible. For example, using “Whiteboard” in Invert Colors is very useful for reading documents since it makes whites very white and blacks very black in the image making the letters stand out more on the page. Invert Colors Negative mode is the standard white on black or “high contrast” mode. White balances are very useful to ease eye strain and get better results in color assistant. Mixing and matching these settings can produce some very custom results.

    Move Display Near or Far versus Zoom In and Zoom Out

    There are 2 ways to make an image bigger in Cyber Eyez Gear VR. Many people find that the image stays in focus best by using the Move Display Near or Far mode to magnify. This works extremely well for items that are at the default “focal length” for the camera...about 20 inches. However, to read things across a room or at a distance the camera needs zoom. With Cyber Eyez you have both. You can move the display as close as you need and then go into a mode that supports zoom to make the image even bigger.

    How do I select the Reading Assistant I want?

    Google Offline Text Reader and Microsoft Online can both be accessed by swiping up or down on your swipe pad.

    What are differences between each Reading Assistant modes?

    Google Offline Text Reader does not require any internet connection to read text. It is very powerful, recognizes text in columns and blocks. Microsoft Online is the same OCR engine used by long text mode in Seeing AI from Microsoft. It recognizes text at multiple angles (even upside down), but sometimes struggles if there are headlines and smaller print text in the same image.

    How do I use the Reading Assistant to capture letters?

    The best way to read with any wearable is to use a book easel. This are inexpensive devices that hold documents, books and magazines still and even have clips to hold the pages in place while you read. If you don’t have an easel, hold the document in your left hand and snap a picture with a long tap on the swipe pad. You will hear a camera shutter “click” sound when it takes the picture. Wait a few seconds and the text will begin to be read back. To stop the voice, swipe forward or backward on the swipe pad.

    How do I use the Reading Assistant to capture a book?

    Books really work best with an easel, but can be done in your hand or on a table as well. Hold the book open so both pages can be seen by the camera lense if possible. If both pages can not be seen, try to capture one page without the other. A piece of paper comes in handy to cover the other page if the book or magazine is too large to do one page at a time. Once you’ve got text in the frame, long tap on the swipe pad to take a picture. You will hear a camera shutter “click” sound when it takes the picture. Wait a few seconds and the text will begin to be read back. To stop the voice, swipe forward or backward on the swipe pad.

    How do I use the Reading Assistant to capture receipts?

    Hold the receipt fairly close to the device (about 18-20 inches) to block out any surrounding “white noise” since receipt text can be fairly light. Once you’ve got the receipt in the frame, long tap on the swipe pad to take a picture. You will hear a camera shutter “click” sound when it takes the picture. Wait a few seconds and the text will begin to be read back. To stop the voice, swipe forward or backward on the swipe pad.

    How do I power down/up the device?

    Your headset receives power from the phone and does not have to be powered on. For Samsung S8 and S8+, the power button is on the right hand side of the phone with no other buttons.

    How do I properly charge the device?

    There is a USB-C plug on the bottom, right hand side of the headset.


    How do I connect Wifi?

    1. From the Home screen, swipe up on an empty spot to open the Apps tray.

    2. Tap Settings > Connections.

    3. Tap Wi-Fi.

    4. If necessary, tap the Wi-Fi switch to ON.

    5. A list of networks populates.

    6. Tap the MORE to add a Wi-Fi network that does not display.

    7. Tap the desired Wi-Fi network you want to connect to.

    8. If necessary, enter the password.

    9. Tap Connect.

    How do I put my Gear VR together and what are all these parts called?

    There are three main parts to Cyber Eyez Gear VR:

    1. Samsung Smartphone

    2. Oculus Gear Virtual Reality Headset

    3. Cyber Eyez application

    To assemble your headset, please take the following steps:

    1. Orient the headset so that the headset is looking toward you and the straps are going away from you with focus wheel on the top.

    2. Make sure the black clip on the right is all the way right and not “snapped” into place

    3. Make sure the gray clip on the left side is lifted up and ready to receive your phone. If you have an S8 or smaller the phone, make sure the clip is in the “B” position!
      Important note: If your phone uses micro USB rather than USB-C you can swap the adapter on the headset by switching the adapter to unlock, removing it, and replacing it with the micro USB version.

    4. Orient your phone so that the USB charging plug lines up with the gray clip on the left side with the screen facing the headset and the camera facing you

    5. Press the phone into place in the left clip lining up the USB charging port on the phone and the USB plug on the headset ensuring a snug fit on the USB plug.

    6. Push the phone toward the headset so it lays flat. The clip on the right will “snap” into place and hold the phone.

    How do I open Cyber Eyez?

    Cyber Eyez is always running in the background on your phone. When you reboot or take it out of the headset, after a few seconds you should hear your device say, “Cyber Eyez ready for headset docking.” All you need to do is put your phone in your headset to start Cyber Eyez. Alternatively, you can open it like any other app by tapping the Cyber Eyez icon on your phone. It is spelled “Cyber Eyes” on Android devices to enable you to use Google Assistant as well. Just say, “Ok Google, open Cyber Eyes” and it will launch automatically.

    Name the swipe pad and the up and down swipe actions.

    There is a swipe pad on the right hand side of the device beneath two small buttons. DON’T TOUCH THE BUTTONS! We don’t use the buttons or any functions in Cyber Eyez, however if you press them they will take you to the Oculus home screen. In Cyber Eyez, we swipe up (from the floor to the ceiling) or down (from the ceiling to the floor) to change modes. You can access all modes by swiping up or down as the list repeats in either direction.

    Practice swipe up and down navigation.

    During this time, allow the students to practice swiping up and down on the swipe pad. Some will press too hard, some too soft. Some will swipe in diagonals that may be registered as forward and back swipes.

    Name the swipe pad and the forward and back swipe actions.

    To zoom in, zoom out or change options in settings modes we swipe forward (from your ear toward your eyeball) or backward (from your eyeball toward your ear). Depending on which mode you are in, swiping forward and back will do different things. Swiping forward and backward in reading, object, color and barcode modes will zoom in and zoom out. Swiping forward in Adjust brightness will increase brightness.

    Practice swipe forward and back navigation.

    During this time allow the students to practice all the different ways to navigate Cyber Eyez and to adjust settings, zoom in and out, combine different settings and zoom levels.

    How do I take a picture in Cyber Eyez?

    Take a picture by long tapping on the swipe pad. You will hear a camera shutter click sound when the picture is taken. If you’re having trouble, try lifting your finger off the swipe pad and try again.

    Move Display

    To adjust for your vision, Cyber Eyez has the ability to move the entire virtual movie screen in front of your eyes. If you have better peripheral vision than central, try going to “Move Display Left or Right Mode” and swipe forward or backward to move the entire display in either direction. So if you have vision in your lower right peripheral for example, go to Move Display Left or Right, swipe forward to move the screen to the right. Then swipe down to Move Display Up or Down and swipe backward to move the screen down. You can also move the screen closer or farther away from your eye. The ultimate goal is to try and see all 4 corners of the movie screen if possible.

    Practice zooming and capturing

    Have the students go into Google Offline Text Reader, Microsoft Online Text Reader, Barcode mode, color assistant or mood ring mode and practice zooming and taking pictures.

    Q&A

    15 minute questions and answer sessions at the end of the training to answer any of your Cyber Eyez basics questions.

    Class Length and Schedule:

    1 Hour

    17m - Intro

    3m - How do I open the Cyber Eyez menu to select the Reading Assistant I want?

    5m - What are differences between each Reading Assistant modes?

    5m - How do I use the Reading Assistant to capture letters?

    5m - How do I use the Reading Assistant to capture receipts?

    5m - Spend time working with the zoom feature and how it works with the OCR features.

    15m - Q and A. Also a great time go over troubleshooting and known issues.

    Class Curriculum:

    How do I open the Cyber Eyez menu to select the Reading Assistant I want?

    Long press #1 to bring up the menu. Reading Assistant is the first option. It has a sub-menu, so short press #3 to open the sub-menu. The first option is Cyber Eyez Offline mode. Short press #1 to scroll down to Microsoft Online mode or Back to go back to the main menu. Short press #3 to select either Cyber Eyez Offline mode or Microsoft Online mode.

    What are differences between each Reading Assistant modes?

    Cyber Eyez Offline Text Reader does not require any internet connection to read text. It is can read text in over 160 languages. Microsoft Online is the same OCR engine used by long text mode in Seeing AI from Microsoft. It recognizes text at multiple angles (even upside down), but sometimes struggles if there are headlines and smaller print text in the same image.

    How do I use the Reading Assistant to capture letters?

    The best way to read with any wearable is to use a book easel. This are inexpensive devices that hold documents, books and magazines still and even have clips to hold the pages in place while you read. If you don’t have an easel, hold the document in your left hand and snap a picture with a short press of #3. You will hear a camera shutter “click” sound when it takes the picture. Wait a few seconds and the text will begin to be read back. To stop the voice, swipe forward or backward on the swipe pad or short press #1 or #2.

    How do I use the Reading Assistant to capture a book?

    Books really work best with an easel, but can be done in your hand or on a table as well. Hold the book open so both pages can be seen by the camera lense if possible. If both pages can not be seen, try to capture one page without the other. A piece of paper comes in handy to cover the other page if the book or magazine is too large to do one page at a time. Once you’ve got text in the frame, short press #3 to take a picture. You will hear a camera shutter “click” sound when it takes the picture. Wait a few seconds and the text will begin to be read back. To stop the voice, swipe forward or backward on the swipe pad or short press #1 or #2.

    How do I use the Reading Assistant to capture receipts?

    Hold the receipt fairly close to the device (about 18-20 inches) to block out any surrounding “white noise” since receipt text can be fairly light. Once you’ve got the receipt in the frame, short press #3 to take a picture. You will hear a camera shutter “click” sound when it takes the picture. Wait a few seconds and the text will begin to be read back. To stop the voice, swipe forward or backward on the swipe pad or short press #1 or #2.

    Spend time working with the zoom feature and how it works with the OCR features.

    Zoom in on one paragraph and take a picture. On bills, zoom in on the amount due and have just that read back. Zoom and OCR are a powerful combination to cut down the amount of text being read back and to get just the text you want.

    Q & A

    Also a great time go over troubleshooting and known issues.

    Techniques for getting successful OCR results.

  • The Political Communication Division at APSA is sponsoring a graduate student mentoring happy hour at this year’s APSA -- and you're invited!

    The idea is to offer an informal venue for graduate students to get to know and hear from scholars in the field – folks at different points in their career and with varying research interests, who are also engaging, interesting, and awesome. Our lineup includes:

    We’ve reserved a space at The Line Hotel's Lyra & Lynx space, a short walk from the conference, on Thursday, August 29, from 4 - 6 p.m. Lyra & Lynx is located behind the front desk on the left hand side. If you make it to the guest elevators, you've gone too far. 

    Registration is free, but space is limited, so please only register if you know you can make it. In order to register, we ask that you submit a brief question for the mentors at the event using this very short Google form

    We hope you can join us for this event that will offer political communication graduate students a chance to broaden their networks and engage with scholars outside their university.

    Please come - have a few drinks and munchies on us while you chat with leaders in political communication.

    How does the US Hipster Antitrust debate resonate in the EU and in Germany?  What do you see as some of the biggest similarities and differences in how competition policy may be evolving in Europe v. the US?

    We would have to discuss first what exactly we mean by “Hipster Antitrust” as the term is a rather imprecise one and does not necessarily spur a fruitful debate. In Europe, we do not really use it. Instead, we are trying to find out how to deal with novel manifestations of market power from online platforms and networks. We are faced with parameters like network effects and data troves. I see the attempts to address them not as "hipster" but simply a reflection of a novel competitive landscape in the digital economy.

    Our starting point is our case output. One could say that it all started in 2013 with our proceeding concerning the price parity clauses for the Amazon Marketplace in Germany. We closely cooperated with the UK Office of Fair Trading at the time and achieved a Europe-wide drop of those so-called MFN clauses. Reportedly in March 2019, Amazon gave up its MFN policy on the U.S. marketplace as well for similar concerns to our procedure. At EU level, the Google saga of the European Commission is the most prominent example of an in-depth assessment of some essential features of the digital economy. The key elements of Google Shopping, Google Android and Google AdSense such as undue self-favoring and shielding itself from competitive and innovative pressure by imposing anticompetitive contractual restrictions are of relevance beyond the scope of those individual cases.

    Our recent Facebook decision also had an impact on the global antitrust community. It takes a strategic look at how data is being used in multisided digital markets and what principles have to be taken into account for the assessment of abusive conduct. It is our clear stand that the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) determines that Facebook has no effective justification for collecting and combining data from third sources with the user data of the social network.

    All in all, the objective of antitrust enforcement remains straightforward. Untamed economic power is simply prone to abuse. The unprecedented levels of global market power that are now manifesting themselves naturally indicate that a stringent abuse control is much warranted.

     

    Does the Bundeskartellamt undertake similar efforts as UK’s CMA to build analytics and tech expertise (e.g. hire data scientists and experts on AI) for tackling issues in the digital economy? Do you see any practical constraints in competition agencies in general being able to adequately and independently assess competition issues in the digital economy? Do you have thoughts on how to address this?

    Just like the CMA, we cannot afford to lean back and have never done so. We are constantly undertaking substantial efforts and sharpening our conceptual and analytical tools to keep up with the digital economy. In 2015, the Bundeskartellamt launched an "Internet Think Tank" aimed at deepening our understanding of the characteristics of the market power of online platforms and networks and its implications for the antitrust toolbox. We published a report in 2016 and split the competence for digital cases among a few Decision Divisions with experienced case handlers in that area. We teamed up with the French Autorité de la concurrence for our joint groundwork paper on "Competition Law and Data" and our on-going project on algorithms. We are also in a phase of internal restructuring to meet the challenges ahead.

    Our policy department is currently setting up a specialized unit for the digital economy comprised of lawyers, economists and IT experts. On the recruitment side, we started to hire experts for data science last year and we will further increase our work force in that field.

    Regarding our ability to act adequately and independently, I think that our track record at the forefront of the digital economy speaks for itself.


    What do you think is the proper definition of “price” or “market power” when discussing platforms that charge users little or nothing, and primarily transact in data? Or do you think those terms aren’t particularly relevant for antitrust policy in this space? If the latter, does this imply the need to more broadly move on from the traditional consumer welfare standard to something else? Or is this a specific opinion about these sorts of platforms?

    It appears self-explanatory to me that any purely price-based concepts cannot adequately reflect the business models of those platforms. Still, the prism of market powers is flexible enough to capture the real world developments. There is no such thing as a free lunch in the online world either. Data is the currency of the digital age and user data is one side of the commercial transaction at stake.

    That is why the last amendment of German competition law specifically mentions some important criteria for the assessment of market power in the presence of platforms. Network effects, multi-homing and switching costs, economies of scale, access to data and innovation are now explicitly part of our antitrust law acquis and they have been successfully tested in our CTS Eventim/Four Artists decision that was concerned with a vertical merger in multi-sided markets.

    Speaking of consumer welfare, my impression is that the consumer welfare standard is not being replaced by something new but that competition enforcers around the globe are broadening their perspective to not lose sight of the parameters that actually matter in the digital economy. In my view, consumer welfare and the preservation of consumer choice and the freedom to compete are intertwined. That is why we will keep up our efforts to keep markets open in the presence of digital ecosystems and to fulfill our mission to maintain a competitive level playing field across the players of the platform economy.
