California seeks to bring hightech to state government

first_img SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Gavin Newsom is looking for a leader interested in “breaking things, and making them better,” who prioritizes “openness” and “simplicity” and can “feed and sustain team energy and enthusiasm.”“While you think long-term, your bias for action ensures you gain traction quickly,” reads the job description for the head of California’s new Office of Digital Innovation.It sounds more like a job advertisement for a Silicon Valley startup than state government — and that’s the point. Newsom wants the $26 million, 50-person office to throw away the old playbook and find ways to be more user-friendly for the state’s 40 million residents when they do such things as seek benefits, start a business or renew a driver’s license.California government has tried to infuse innovation before.The state’s technology department runs a digital innovation academy and an innovation lab, and it issued guidelines to make state websites more usable last year. The Government Operations Agency, which will oversee the new office, already has a director of innovation and accountability. The health and human services agency has its own innovation office.“Only Sacramento can take innovation and make it more bureaucratic,” said Assemblyman Vince Fong, R-Bakersfield, who noted problems persist with the state’s technology, from the Department of Motor Vehicles to a new state accounting system.Even the DMV, which has been plagued by hours-long lines and other hang ups, already has a Newsom-appointed “strike team” focused on improving its operations. The agency is closing its offices statewide for a half-day in July for employee training.Members of the Newsom administration said the new office can bring a fresh perspective to state operations, ideally helping the state run more like a business. They want people to access state services with the ease of ordering a ride, a meal or nearly anything else with the tap of a smartphone.“In your everyday life you have these great interactions with business,” said Mike Wilkening, the governor’s special adviser on innovation and digital services. “They make it as seamless as possible for you to conduct business with them — and the state does not.”While there’s broad agreement that improvement is needed, some critics and supporters alike see potential for the new office to become just another layer of bureaucracy.“It’s going to be interesting to see how they organize those 50 people, how they ensure that they are not being redundant with what the other organizations are doing and how they integrate,” said Teri Takai, a former chief information officer for California who now runs the Center for Digital Government, a 20-year-old national research and advisory organization for best practices in state and local government. She was an adviser to Newsom’s transition team and advocated for the creation of the office.She said other states are initiating similar efforts, though not all with a full department like California is doing. Alaska and New Jersey, for example, recently hired chief innovation officers.Administration officials say the office would complement, not duplicate, existing state programs. An agency could, for example, bring a problem for the office to tackle, or the Newsom administration could request the office look into something specific.“The governor would have no lack of ideas on ways we can improve services to Californians,” said Brian Ferguson, a Newsom spokesman.Once it comes up with an idea, the office would kick back some of the work of making it happen to the state agency that brought the problem or to the California Department of Technology if the solution is one that could improve service statewide, said Amy Tong, the state’s chief information officer.“It’s complementary in the sense that the Department of Technology is still going to be very much focusing on statewide technology initiatives,” Tong said. “Digital innovation would focus more on the front-end planning and discovery work.”Brian Metzker studied the proposal for the nonpartisan Legislative Analyst’s Office and said the work the new office will do appears different from other state programs. But he noted its duties will evolve once a director is hired and the office gets up and running.“It will be important for lawmakers to keep an eye on the office to make sure it’s not offering competing or duplicative services as it gets to work,” he said.Fong, the Republican lawmaker, agreed government needs an overhaul, even as he questioned Newsom’s approach.“Tech has changed for the better everything in our daily lives, whether it’s from travel, from booking services that we use in our daily lives or buying groceries,” he said. But, “state government has lagged behind because all they do is create more red tape and bureaucracy.”Beyond the director, Newsom will appoint 19 other employees who will be exempt from civil service. Thirty others will be hired through the normal government process.Of the new office’s $26 million budget, $10 million would go into a fund it could tap to complete its work. The budget in following years would be $14 million.

Twinkle Sharma case Sonam Kareena Kapoor Swara Bhaskar shamed for double standards

first_imgNot even half as much coverage as kathua. What happened internet intellectuals, cat got your tongue? No outrage on the background of the perpetrators? You were so rattled during Kathua. #TwinkleSharma Then why you were using Placard on Kathua matters, started shaming Hinduism and Hindustan?? Please keep your Gyan to Yourself, we Hate your Double Standards. #TwinkleSharma Ashoke Pandit @ashokepandit Heard they are not paying you to hold a placard, like you did during the Kathua incident when you implied she was killed by Hindus. A sad day when the likes of you are give space in a public discourse. Oh my gosh  intelligent lady, Did you forget this intelligence and knowledge, when you’re crying about asifa? Screenshots of Sonam Kapoor’s Twitter postsTwitterati has condemned Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and other Bollywood celebs, who protested against Asifa rape holding placards, for showing their double standards towards Twinkle Sharma’s murder case.A man named Mohammed Zahid had killed Twinkle Sharma in Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh district. What is more shocking is that Twinkle was killed over a meagre sum of Rs 10,000 that the three-year-old girl’s parents had taken as loan. Zahid was arrested after Aligarh police recovered Twinkle’s body on June 2.The murder sent shockwaves across the country with many condemning it, saying that it is inhuman, horrible and barbaric. Many celebs like Sidharth Malhotra, Abhishek Bachchan, Ayushmann Khurrana, Raveena Tandon, Sunny Leone and Gul Panag were among the people, who expressed shock over the incident and offered prayers for Twinkle Sharma and her family.But a few celebs like Koena Mitra tried to give a communal colour to the murder case of Twinkle Sharma. The model-turned-actress tweeted, “Hindus have the responsibility to remain secular I guess, hence no outrage for you. I am Hindustan. A proud Hindu. I’m not liberal enough to support your Rapists. I’m no secular from today. With you and yours…. #TwinkleSharma #Aligarh #Mohammedjahid.”Many people objected to Koena Mitra for this case with politics and religion. Responding to one of them, she wrote, “Look around, there are many supporters. It’s a sarcastic statement. Silent spectators are supporters!!! No candle light march, no placards, no headlines. Why? What’s stopping them now?”Sonam Kapoor took to Twitter to condemn the murder case of Twinkle Sharma, but she requested everyone not use this incident for selfish agenda. She tweeted, “What has happened to baby twinkle is. Heartbreaking and horrific. I pray for her and her family. I also urge people to not make this into a selfish agenda. This is a little girls death, not a reason to spread your hate.”When an eight-year-old girl named Asifa Bano was abducted and murdered in Kathua, celebs like Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar, Kalki Koechlin, Richa Chadda, Vishal Dadlani, Baadshah, Isha Gupta, Mini Mathur, Radhika Apte and Konkana Sen had protested against it. They had held placard which was said to be leftists and liberals’ agenda against Hindus and Hinduism. Celebs holding placards to protested against Asifa’s murderSome of these people have also condemned the murder case of Twinkle Sharma, while others remained quiet on these issues. However, none of them protested against the murderers holding the placards, which displayed their religion. This did not go down well with many right-wing people, who created a collage of their photos and trolled them for hypocrisy and double standards.Shefali Vaidya @ShefVaidya I hv nt qstnd ur beliefs bt want to knw why dr’s a diffrnce in Ur reaction btwn #Asifa & #Twinkle.Why ds delayed reaction ?Why no playcards? Why nt tkng names of d accused ?Don’t U think al crimes shld b condemned wth same intensity nd similar language. #JusticeForTwinkleSharma Rama‏ @sriramtalks One person can be wrong but not Mass.. You run agenda some time ago and now people are reminding you that… Hirakesh Chandra Roy‏ @RoyHirakesh Influencer‏ @Purple_Truth Baawra Mann‏ @BaawraMann It is obvious. The placard campaign during #Kathua was a fully paid for promotional exercise, with identical placards and full make-up and lighting wala professional photo shoot. @sonamakapoor was merely being herself, a brainless mannequin wearing some fashionable clothes! pslv18‏ @cridgy_edgelord Nehal Kapadia‏ @kapadia_nehal Yo Yo Funny Singh‏ @moronhumor I am Ashamed, I am Ashamed that Sonam Kapoor’s Makeup Artist, her Photographer, her hairstylist, her dress designer, her Placard guy, her PR manager were not available for her to be Hindustan and Ashamed this morning.

Account Aggregator to make funding seamless in India

first_imgReserve Bank of IndiaReutersFormer UIDAI chairman Nandan Nilekani introduced the Account Aggregator to give individuals and small businesses more control over their digital data. Sahamati, a body which will promote the Account Aggregator ecosystem, will be headed by BG Mahesh, one of the earliest internet entrepreneurs in India who also founded OneIndia.com. The account aggregator is based on a new class of non-banking financial institutions called the account aggregator (NBFC-AA) model.The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is planning to make bank account operations, including mutual fund, insurance and provident fund businesses, paperless through the account aggregator (AA) app. This will give individuals greater control over how their data is being used, while also reducing the need for them to visit multiple bank branches.Sahamati will work towards accelerating the adoption of the framework by building awareness about the new technology and supporting implementation and integration through various workshops.A new era has begun. Thanks to #AccountAggregator and other digital infrastructure that we have, India will become a leader in empowering individuals and small businesses with their own data! https://t.co/lqkXDN3u44— Nandan Nilekani (@NandanNilekani) July 25, 2019The aggregator will obtain data from multiple service providers and deliver it via consent-based channels to financial information users. This will be used in the financial sector first, followed by telecom, healthcare, and other sectors.”Thanks to AA and other digital infrastructure that we built, India will become a leader in empowering individuals and small businesses with their own data,” said Nilekani.The non-profit will apply for the self-regulatory organisation (SRO) licence with the RBI, which is expected by the year-end, allowing the companies to start offering the services. The license will also give it the status of a self-governing body, allowing it to work on a code of conduct and best practices for member organisations, Mahesh told The Hindu BusinessLine.SBI Chairman Rajnish Kumar believes that the use of account aggregators could lead to cost efficiency. This can be shared with the customer in terms of a lower rate of interest.The central bank in 2016 had approved a new class of Non-banking Financial Companies (NBFCs), including four major financial regulators RBI, SEBI, IRDA and PFRDA, to act as Account Aggregators. Their responsibility is to transfer a client’s data without storing it. Acting like consent brokers, the AAs can make money out of this transaction without being able to read the data.last_img read more

Chinese Automaker Plans SelfDriving Electric Car by 2020

first_imgJuly 12, 2016 2 min read This story originally appeared on Reuters An automotive venture backed by China tech giant Tencent aims to launch an electric self-driving car before 2020, entering a crowded field dominated by US-based Tesla, the chief executive told Reuters on Tuesday.Future Mobility, backed by Tencent and Hon Hai Precision Industries, is one of an expanding field of China-backed ventures that aim to take on Tesla Motors Inc. as green energy car sales boom in China.Although the venture sought to produce premium cars like Tesla, it would attempt a different strategy from the US company that began with relatively limited production and focuses on a single model at a time, CEO Carsten Breitfeld said in an interview.”Right from the beginning we define the platform, right from the beginning we define the production process to be mass production and right from the beginning we think of more than one model, a family of models, defined from this platform,” Breitfeld said, defining mass production as 250,000 to 400,000 cars annually.The company was in the midst of closing its Series A round of funding, which also included dealership chain China Harmony New Energy Auto, Breitfeld said.He declined to give financial terms of the first round or name other potential investors that the company was in talks with, although he said the leadership team would also have partial ownership.While Future Mobility intended to jump directly to fully self-driving cars, drivers would only be able to turn on full autonomy in a pilot city at first, later expanding to other geographies.The company would draw from the same battery technology made by a short list of suppliers that most automakers use but aimed to better rivals with more efficient battery management software.Breaking outFuture Mobility is not the first upstart automaker to make bold pronouncements. Chinese-invested Atieva aims to launch an electric car by 2018.LeEco says its proposed smart electric cars will eventually be free, making money on in-car content and other services.Even Tesla now aims to produce 500,000 cars annually by 2018.But Future Mobility stands out from its competitors for poaching its leadership away from big-name tech and autos companies.Breitfeld formerly led the BMW i series electric car division and brought the core team with him to the new venture, with others joining from Tesla, Alphabet’s Google and Daimler’s Mercedes.(Reporting by Jake Spring; Editing by Stephen Coates) Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Register Now » Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.last_img read more
