In other industry related developments in the markets of note:
Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) recently announced PyTorch 1.0, a new iteration of the framework that merges Python-based PyTorch with Caffe2 allowing developers to move from research to production in a more frictionless way without having to deal with migration. At Facebook, the company's AI efforts are split between two teams, the Facebook AI Research group (FAIR) and the company's Applied Machine Learning team (AML). The distinction ultimately boils down to one division researching AI with seemingly limitless computational resources at their disposal and the other looking to implement lightweight machine learning models more suited for consumers. In the past, the former mission has been better-suited for the research-optimized PyTorch while the more resource-efficient Caffe2 framework has made sense for the latter. Moving between these frameworks through research and production phases has been a bit of a headache for Facebook. PyTorch 1.0 fuses the best of both worlds with immediate and graph execution modes that should continue its research-focused prowess while gaining some optimizations for production.
Twilio Inc. (NYSE: TWLO) recently announced support for LINE within Twilio, making it possible for global developers to use one platform to reach customers on virtually any messaging channel. With the addition of LINE to Twilio Channels, developers and businesses can leverage one of the most popular messaging channels in Japan, Taiwan, Thailand and Indonesia to better serve customers in these regions. In addition to messaging, LINE provides content rich communications including native support for sharing images, audio and video files and interactive content types like menus, surveys and suggested responses. By using the Twilio platform to integrate LINE into their applications, developers have a uniform interface to take advantage of these rich capabilities and enhance the customer experience. LINE is the most recent messaging channel to be supported by the Twilio platform in addition to SMS, MMS, RCS, Facebook Messenger and more.
Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR) recently announced financial results for its first quarter 2018. "The first quarter was a strong start to the year," said Jack Dorsey, Twitter CEO. "We grew our audience and engagement, marking another quarter of double digit year-over-year DAU growth, and continued our work to make it easier to follow topics, interests, and events on Twitter. We also introduced a new framework to think more cohesively about the issues affecting our service, including information quality and safety. This holistic approach will help us more effectively address these challenges by viewing them through the broader lens of the health of the public conversation, and we're encouraged by our initial progress in this area." "We're pleased to report growth across all major products and geographies in the first quarter," said Ned Segal, Twitter CFO. "We grew total revenue 21% year-over-year and owned-and-operated advertising revenue 28% year-over-year, driven by continued audience growth, differentiated ad product features, improved ROI, and better sales execution. Our strong revenue performance drove better than expected profits and GAAP net margins of 9%, reflecting our continued prioritization and disciplined execution across our strategic priorities."
