For now, the NBA bot will have only a limited capacity to show you highlights and will not provide videos of teams and players outside of the 2016 Finals.

To access highlights, simply open the NBA bot and type the name of a team or a player.

How to track customer journeys in Slack MailClark blog, Slack integrations (Email, Twitter, Facebook) At MailClark, we’re dedicated to helping people focus on the work and communication that matters. To do this, we help customers centralize their work and knowledge in one place. It’s why we’ve built two-way syncs between external accounts (e.g. email, Facebook, Twitter) and Slack. And why we’ve invested in a seamless Google OAuth experience to connect Gmail accounts and Slack. In order to build a better product, we turn to customer behavior and conversations as sources of truth. The problem that most teams face is all of their information is fragmented, making it difficult to see product behavior, bot interactions, and human conversations in one place.

Google AIY Voice Kit — Pimoroni What can I say, the perfect use for that Pi 3 that's sitting around in the plastic box waiting for a project worthy of it. As far as I can see it's a fully functioning Google Home in a mini size cardboard box! Didn't take long to put together but take your time as the final assembly is a bit fiddly so don't damage anything. Try all the Python demos in the src/ directory and if nothing seems to be happening wait a little longer, check the Internet connection or press the button on top as some of the demos require this to operate before each time you talk to it.

NPR is building an analytics bot that emphasizes caring over clicks For years, journalists have railed against pageviews and uniques, twin metrics that have established supremacy over much of the Internet. Their argument, all tidied up, goes like this: Pageviews and uniques tend to emphasize frivolous content (think cat videos) at the expense of time-intensive journalism. The metrics can be gamed by publishers with the money and inclination to buy traffic. And a lack of standardization throughout the industry has led to confusion among advertisers and outlets about the value of a click.
