SALESFORCE.COM QUIETLY BOUGHT AN ISRAELI START-UP CALLED BLUETAIL IN JULY

Sep 11,2012

But its tastes also run toward the very small. Example: Salesforce recently acquired an Israeli data-mining start-up called BlueTail. BlueTail’s founder and CTO has been made chief data scientist at Data.com, a Salesforce unit. Indeed, the deal has all the markings of a classic “acqhire” situation. A Salesforce spokeswoman confirmed the acquisition to AllThingsD on Monday.

The giveaway clue was a batch of LinkedIn profiles belonging to former BlueTail employees who have since updated their information indicating that they now work for Salesforce. Data.com’s new chief data scientist is Alon Talmor

WILL SCIENTISTS SOON BE ABLE TO READ OUR MINDS?

The researchers concluded that the delay in awareness reflects the brain’s preparation for making the decision and acting on it. “Decision reading” works after the fact. too: In another study, published a year ago by Yeshurun, Prof. Talma Hendler and research student Alon Talmor, subjects were asked to perform a specific activity, for example, to enter a certain room and remove a bill from a wallet in a coat pocket. Afterward subjects were shown films of various activities, and demonstrated a particularly strong reaction to a film in which someone removes money from a wallet. The interesting finding, adds Yeshurun, was that the activity was not located in the emotional parts of the brain, but in “mirror cells” − a region responsible for the reflection of activities that we see. This is an area that causes us, for instance, to mimic the movements of an interlocutor unconsciously.
