    fastest growing tech AI

    This is a preview of a research report from Business Insider Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about Business Insider Intelligence, click here.

    Artificial intelligence (AI), often used as an umbrella term to describe types of technology that can simulate human intelligence, is one of today’s hottest topics across a number of business sectors. AI techniques teach computers to parse data in a contextual manner to provide requested information, supply analysis, or trigger an event based on their findings.

    Marketers are already leveraging the power of AI to glean valuable insights about their customers, automate tasks, and improve workflows. Just over half (51%) of marketers currently use AI, and an additional 27% are expected to incorporate the technology by 2019, according to Salesforce. This represents the highest anticipated year-over-year (YoY) growth of any leading technology that marketers expect to adopt in the next year, beating out the Internet of Things and marketing automation. And, as the volume of consumer-generated data grows, AI computing techniques — like machine learning, deep learning, and natural language processing (NLP) — will become increasingly important to data-driven decision-making.

    In a new report, Business Insider Intelligence examines the current and potential applications of AI within marketing. We dive into how AI enhances personalization, and identify the best practices for marketers looking to integrate the nascent tech into their strategies. We also look at how marketers cam implement AI to better target audiences, gain a competitive edge, and analyze data from social platforms. Finally, we evaluate how these applications will transform — and enhance — the way marketers analyze data, conduct burdensome tasks, and create content. 

    Here are some of the key takeaways from the report:

    • AI is advancing beyond data analysis and moving rapidly into data generation, as machines get better at automating two basic human senses: sight and hearing. Gleaning insights from data-rich media like voice and video is now possible, and humans no longer have to manually categorize or describe various types of media.
    • AI will transform marketers from reactive to proactive planners. The enhanced analytics that AI provides will help marketers more efficiently plan and execute campaigns in three main areas: segmentation, tracking, and keyword tagging.
    • However, the rapid pace of innovation is contributing to marketers’ sense of unpreparedness for AI implementation and future use cases. When asked to choose which trending technology they felt most unprepared for, 34% of global marketing executives chose AI, the most of any option, according to Conductor.
    • AI will aid in content creation, but human marketers are still necessary. It’s still early days for marketers to use AI to automatically create editorial content or stitch together the right image with the right messaging for display ads. Machines will help cut down on production time, but humans are needed for their creative juices.

    In full, the report:

    • Discusses the top use cases for AI in marketing and examines those with the greatest potential in the next few years. 
    • Breaks down how the role of marketers will evolve once AI automates remedial tasks. 
    • Explores how the customer experience is becoming more personalized, relevant, and timely. 
    • Provides potential roadmaps for companies that are beginning to invest in AI and machine learning.

    early retirement

    • Achieving early retirement can be done with help from a simple habit, according to early retirees: Tracking your net worth.
    • You should also have a net-worth target to help stick to your early retirement plan, says Sam Dogen of Financial Samurai.
    • But beware: An obsession with measuring your progress can pull you off course.

    How much money you need to retire early depends on your cost of living and potential for investment growth and passive income. 

    But once you have that ballpark number figured out, just how do you get there?

    According to several early retirees, one of the keys to achieving financial independence lies in one very simple habit: Tracking your net worth.

    It's a way to "kickstart your journey to wealth" and the "single best thing" you can do within five minutes if you want to progress financially, wrote JP Livingston, who retired early at age 28 with $2 million, in a post for Business Insider

    "If you think about every engaging thing you've done, they probably had some way to measure your progress," she wrote. "How many goals you scored. How quickly you can complete a set of problems. Personal finance is no different. You improve what you measure."

    She added: "You need to be able to track your income, expenses, and net worth. It needs to be staring you in the face every day. Once you start seeing these key metrics improving regularly, it will spur you to dig into the details and find opportunities to grow it faster."

    Read more:7 of the smartest pieces of advice about saving money from early retirees in 2018

    Productivity expert and author James Clear agrees. He told Brandon, an early retiree also known as the Mad Fientist, on his podcast that successful people measure their progress toward a goal because it offers three major benefits: It makes the behavior more obvious, creates an additive effect, and adds immediate gratification.

    "It will show you where the opportunities lie to improve your financial picture," Livingston said. "It is the cornerstone habit that helps build momentum for all the other things you do to grow your wealth."

    Tracking your net worth includes tracking everything — your income, expenses, savings rate, and investing performance, says Grant Sabatier of Millennial Money. It's one of the key strategies he used to grow his $1.25 million nest egg and retire at age 30. 

    Both Livingston and Sabatier use Personal Capital to track their net worth. "I do it every morning, but you can do it as frequently as you like,"Sabatier wrote.

    Track your net worth and set goals — but don't obsess over it

    Sam Dogen, who retired at 34 and runs the blog Financial Samurai, also emphasized the importance of tracking your net worth.

    "Please track your net worth like a hawk so you know exactly where you stand and how much more you've got to go," he wrote in a post published on Business Insider. "There are too many middle-aged folks who wake up one day and wonder where all their money went because they didn't stay on top of it. When all they want to do is take it easy, they're faced with the harsh reality that decades of more work is their only option."

    You should also use it to set goals, Dogen said.

    "Everybody should have a net-worth target to shoot for by age, work experience, and income," he wrote. "Targets will help you stick to your financial plan and motivate you to do more if you're falling behind."

    Having a net-worth guide — like this one Dogen created— to stick on your fridge will help keep you on track, he said.

    Read more:I retired early and the freedom is priceless, but there are some downsides to early retirement that nobody likes to talk about

    But be careful: An obsession with reaching a specific dollar figure could pull you off course. If you obsess about the measurement, it loses its benefits when it becomes the target — a concept known as Goodhart's Law, Clear said.

    "A measure is only useful when it informs you or when it is a bit of data that kind of nudges you toward the ultimate thing," he said. 

    Inevitably there will be stock market gains and losses, and your net worth will fluctuate. Try not to track your net worth to a see a bigger number each month. Rather, look at the progress over the long-term and make sure you're moving in a positive direction.

    "One of the purposes the measurement should provide, is that it provides an emotional signal that you're moving in the right direction," Clear said. "It provides a signal of progress. And that's really all that you're looking for."

    most notable brands

    It's an exciting time to be in retail — as a brand, as a consumer, and for us as product writers. The Insider Picks team tested countless new products, learned the stories of many new startups, and followed the growth of dozens of our now-favorite companies. 

    A select few retail companies really impressed us in 2018, and for a variety of reasons — from superior product launches to admirable social initiatives with quantifiable impact.

    They're a standout representation of what it takes to succeed in retail today: the puzzle pieces of mission, product, branding, customer service, and other key business components fitting together to create a cohesive solution to the needs and wants of consumers. 

    Learn more about the all-stars of 2018 retail below. 

    Everlane

    Shop Everlane here

    Everlane has much to celebrate this year, including the opening of its first brick-and-mortar stores, which were welcomed with open arms in San Francisco and New York; stellar product drops like basic but comfortable underwear, the soft leather flats we can't stop talking about, and an outerwear collection made from recycled plastic water bottles; and another successful anti-Black Friday initiative that sent $260,000 to help fund beach cleanups across the country.

    The brand impressed us throughout the year for its continued commitment to ethical, transparent manufacturing practices and almost-eerie grasp of the styles customers crave — and how to fill the gaps with its own minimalist, carefully curated take. 

     

     



    Dagne Dover

    Shop Dagne Dover here

    It's not just you — we've been seeing a lot more Dagne Dover bags in the streets of urban jungles, too. This might be because of its increased but carefully managed offline presence in select Nordstrom stores, Equinox boutiques, and BANDIER shops, or confident push into styles and textures you wouldn't expect from a women's work bag company.

    Whether it's a work tote, gym and travel bag, or laptop bag, the women of Insider Picks have agreed that Dagne Dover hits it out of the park every single time with a consistent track record that's not always easy for experimental startups to achieve. 



    Patagonia

    Shop Patagonia here

    More so it seems than other clothing industries, outdoor brands share a special connection with the environments they design for. With the push into recycled materials like down and cashmere, and the no-hesitation decision to send its $10 million 2018 tax cut to grassroots environmental activist groups, Patagonia ramped up its efforts to protect the outdoors. 

    The ubiquity of its vests and sweaters might inspire joke Instagram accounts, but at least they're the products of a highly-rated B Corp with a conscience. In February, it launched Patagonia Action Works to connect individuals to events, petitions, and organizations they might be interested in, and on Election Day, stores across the country closed as a reminder for citizens to vote.

    FORECAST: Global Enterprise VR Hardware and Software Revenue

    Virtual reality (VR) offers immersive experiences in which users can hear, see, and interact with 360-degree digital environments using head-mounted displays (HMDs) and handheld motion devices. The technology has been historically associated with consumer-facing gaming, but it’s been gaining traction in the enterprise over the past year.

    In fact, companies such as Macy’s, Lowe’s, Walmart, and UPS, among others, have all launched new VR programs since 2017. And as more businesses look to tap the technology, this will drive enterprise VR hardware and software revenue to jump 587% to $5.5 billion in 2023, up from an estimated $800 million in 2018, according to Business Insider Intelligence estimates.

    This shows that retailers and brands should look into implementing VR as early as possible to better compete with other industry players who’ve started to use the tech, especially in three key areas: sales, employee training, and product development. All of the companies mentioned above are using VR to in at least one of these areas, enabling them to increase product sales, reduce product design costs, or speed up employee training processes, for instance.

    In the VR In The Enterprise report, Business Insider Intelligence explores how VR can provide value to retailers and brands in three areas: sales, employee training, and product development.

    The report begins by discussing potential pain points the technology addresses for each use case, examining in-depth case studies to illustrate how companies have implemented the technology, and outlining the broader takeaways each use case presents for brands and retailers.

    Finally, it looks at some of the potential barriers to further enterprise adoption and how both companies and VR incumbents are actively addressing those obstacles.

    The companies mentioned in the report are: Audi, Lowe's, Macy's, McLaren Automotive, Walmart, and UPS, among others.

    Here are some key takeaways from the report:

    • VR enables consumers in brick-and-mortar stores to make more informed purchases, which could increase sales conversion rates.
    • Brands and retailers looking to ramp up their employees quicker should consider bringing VR into their training processes.
    • The tech can shorten brands' and retailers' product development life cycles by cutting down on the time associated with building expensive physical prototypes.

    In full, the report:

    • Identifies key VR vendors and device form factors for businesses to consider.
    • Discusses key benefits the tech brings businesses for their sales, training, and product development processes.
    • Illustrates those key benefits by discussing real-world case studies from companies and the takeaways from those implementations.

    elon musk pointing up spacex bfr big falcon rocket moon mission lunar event AP_18261099411389

    • Elon Musk said SpaceX is building a "test hopper" vehicle in Texas that could launch by March or April.
    • The vehicle is a squat version of a full-scale Starship spaceship — one that's being designed to reach Mars as part of the Big Falcon Rocket system.
    • Photos taken by locals in Boca Chica, Texas (where SpaceX is building a launch site) show the outline of a spaceship coming together.

    Elon Musk logged on to Twitter this weekend to deliver a veritable sleigh full of gifts to fans of his rocket company, SpaceX, in time for Christmas.

    Musk was waiting for SpaceX's 21st (and record-breaking) rocket launch of the year on Saturday when he revealed that construction of a prototype for a Mars spaceship, called Starship, is now underway at the company's Texas launch site.

    What's more, the first round of experimental launches of what Musk called the "test hopper" may be complete by early spring.

    Musk and Gwynne Shotwell, the president and COO of SpaceX, have both said short, non-orbit-reaching launches or "hops" of such a spaceship prototype is a critical step toward building the Big Falcon Rocket, or BFR: a colossal two-stage system designed to launch 100 people and 150 tons of cargo to the surface of Mars.

    However, both SpaceX executives said recently that short hops wouldn't commence until the end of 2019. So perhaps a little ingenuity — and an influx of half a billion dollars— has helped speed up that timeline.

    big falcon rocket bfr spacex scale dimensions measurements

    Starship is designed to be about 30 feet wide and 180 feet tall, and sit atop a roughly 219-foot-tall rocket booster that Musk now calls Super Heavy.

    "I will do a full technical presentation of Starship after the test vehicle we’re building in Texas flies, so hopefully March/April," he tweeted on Saturday.

    "This test hopper is at full body diameter of 9m / 30 ft, just not full height. Super Heavy will be full height & diameter," Musk added, indicating that SpaceX won't build a squat version of Super Heavy — and will skip straight to launching a full-scale booster.

    Musk added that construction of test hopper segments was underway at SpaceX's temporary new rocket factory at the Port of Los Angeles.

    Read more: Elon Musk is expanding his SpaceX empire — here's where the rocket company's most important locations are and what they do

    In Boca Chica, Texas, where the company is developing a launch site for BFR, locals have already photographed what look like parts of the test hopper arriving on site and being assembled.

    The image below is an illustration that mocks up recent photos of what appear to be test hopper parts against illustrations of Starship.

    SpaceX did not immediately respond to Business Insider's questions about the Starship test hopper's launch schedule and other details.

    News of the test hopper wasn't the only thing that Musk revealed on Saturday, though.

    Toward the first Mars landings in 2025?

    Musk began spilling information about SpaceX's activities over a discussion of metallurgy, or properties and science of metals, for the BFR.

    Materials are critical to the success or failure of space vehicles because they must withstand enormous temperature swings, pressure changes, and extreme vibration. This is especially true of Starship, which is supposed to launch into orbit around Earth, take a months-long voyage to Mars, land on the red planet's surface, and launch back home.

    Musk presented what he said was a "final iteration" of BFR in September. At the same time, he announced that his company would be launching Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa around the moon in 2023. The design Musk described was rich with carbon-fiber composite parts.

    big falcon rocket bfr spaceship bfs booster bfb earth moon orbit spacex 30934146588_47ce17419b_o

    But by November, Musk had steamrolled that statement, saying radical design changes were coming; he even renamed the BFR system's two main parts. (Starship used to be called "Big Falcon Spaceship" and Super Heavy the "Big Falcon Booster.") In December, Teslarati reported that SpaceX was working with NASA to develop a new type of heat shield for Starship.

    And on Saturday, Musk revealed that SpaceX developed a special stainless steel alloy for its BFR system.

    It's uncertain if SpaceX will now meet its ambitious Mars-launch timeline due to these changes. But as late as Oct. 31, Musk said he hopes to use the BFR system to launch the first humans toward the Martian surface in six years' time.

    "We're still aiming for 2024," Musk said of such a mission during an interviewwith journalist Kara Swisher for the podcast Recode Decode.

    Donald Trump Patrick Shanahan

    • Patrick Shanahan, the deputy defense secretary, will succeed defense secretary James Mattis and serve as acting defense secretary at the Pentagon.
    • Before being appointed as Mattis' deputy in 2017, Shanahan worked as a Boeing executive for decades.
    • The Washington state native was known throughout Boeing as a problem-solving "Mr. Fix-It."

    It's official — deputy defense secretary Patrick Shanahan will be taking the helm at the Pentagon as acting secretary of defense.  

    James Mattis, who resigned from the position over US President Donald Trump's decision to pull troops out of Syria, will be forced out of the role before 2019. In his resignation letter, Mattis had offered to stay on for two months in order to facilitate a smooth transition.

    Read more: Trump is forcing out Defense secretary James Mattis by New Year's instead of allowing him to stay another 2 months

    Instead, Trump announced his new pick in a tweet on Sunday. He praised Shanahan, writing: "Patrick has a long list of accomplishments while serving as Deputy, & previously Boeing. He will be great!"

    But who exactly is Shanahan, and what sort of experience will the Washington state native and father of three bring to the role?

    Here's a look back at Shanahan's life and career:

    bii voice app skills growth over time

    This is a preview of a research report from Business Insider Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about Business Insider Intelligence, click here.

    The voice app ecosystem is booming. In the US, the number of Alexa skills alone surpassed 25,000 in January 2018, up from just 7,000 the previous January, in categories ranging from music streaming services, to games, to connected home tools.

    As voice platforms continue to gain footing in homes via smart speakers — connected devices powered primarily by artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled voice assistants — the opportunity for voice apps is becoming more profound. However, as observed with the rise of mobile apps in the late 2000s, any new digital ecosystem will face significant growing pains, and voice apps are no exception. Thanks to the visual-free format of voice apps, discoverability, monetization, and retention are proving particularly problematic in this nascent space. This is creating a problem in the voice assistant market that could hinder greater uptake if not addressed.

    In this report, Business Insider Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, explores the two major viable voice app stores. It identifies the three big issues voice apps are facing — discoverability, monetization, and retention — and presents possible short-term solutions ahead of industry-wide fixes.

    Here are some of the key takeaways from the report:

    • The market for smart speakers and voice platforms is expanding rapidly. The installed base of smart speakers and the volume of voice apps that can be accessed on them each saw significant gains in 2017. But the new format and the emerging voice ecosystems that are making their way into smart speaker-equipped homes is so far failing to align with consumer needs. 
    • Voice app development is a virtuous cycle with several broken components. The addressable consumer market is expanding, which is prompting more brands and developers to developer voice apps, but the ability to monetize and iterate those voice apps is limited, which could inhibit voice app growth. 
    • Monetization is only one broken component of the voice app ecosystem. Discoverability and user retention are equally problematic for voice app development. 
    • While the two major voice app ecosystems — Amazon's and Google's — have some Band-Aid solutions and workarounds, their options for improving monetization, discoverability, and retention for voice apps are currently limited.
    • There are some strategies that developers and brands can employ in the near term ahead of more robust tools and solutions.

    In full, the report:

    • Sizes the current voice app ecosystem. 
    • Outlines the most pressing problems in voice app development and evolution in the space by examining the three most damning shortcoming: monetization, discoverability, and retention. 
    • Discusses the solutions being offered up by today's biggest voice platforms. 
    • Presents workaround solutions and alternative approaches that could catalyze development and evolution ahead of wider industry-wide fixes from the platforms.

    david hogg

    • Parkland school shooting survivor and gun law activist David Hogg is going to Harvard University.
    • He received a score of 1270 out of 1600 on the SAT, according to TMZ. The bottom 25% of students admitted had an average score of 1460.
    • His reported score has sparked a debate over whether Harvard should have admitted him, or if SAT scores aren't very useful anyway.

    David Hogg — a survivor of the Parkland High School shooting and advocate for gun law reform — announced he's going to Harvard University in the fall.

    The reaction was mixed.

    After surviving the shooting in February, which took 17 lives, Hogg became one of the leaders of the March For Our Lives movement, which demands gun law reform and recruits young people into political activism. He took a gap year after graduating in June to focus on March For Our Lives instead of going directly to college. His activism has made him a lightning rod for criticism on the political right. Fox News host Laura Ingraham, for example, mocked him after four colleges rejected him.

    Somewhere in the middle of all of this, TMZ reported that Hogg had a 4.2 GPA and got a 1270 out of 1600 on the SAT. Now that he's going to Harvard, Hogg's SAT score has become a flashpoint for his critics. It's well below the usual score for the Ivy League school — the average score for admitted students is 1520, according to Prep Scholar.

    Some conservative media figures criticized Harvard's decision to admit Hogg

    But for the most part, people said it shows just how useless the SATs really are

    To others, Hogg's admittance to Harvard showed just how silly the SATs are. If a teenager helps lead a national political movement and has an extraordinary GPA, what does it matter if he doesn't do well on a standardized test?

    And of course, some people told him that studying political science at Harvard isn't enough

    Drones — also commonly referred to as unmanned aircraft — are no longer a cool, new novelty that companies in only a handful of industries are testing.

    Businesses across various industries and levels of government in the US are utilizing at least a handful of drones. But more importantly, drone users are now realizing a deep return on their investments from the aircraft's ability to help save hours of time and labor.

    Farmers' Plans for Drones in 2018

    However, to successfully get a drone program up and running, businesses need to have an idea of what they want the aircraft to do, and the value they hope to create. To that end, companies need to know what their competitors are doing with the aircraft so they can plan their own projects accordingly.

    In this report, Business Insider Intelligence details how unmanned aircraft are disrupting a slew of different industries, including agriculture, construction and mining, insurance, media and telecommunications, and the public sector. We also size the market for global enterprise drone shipments, and pinpoint the features that make drones useful tools within different industries. Lastly, we make predictions for how drone use in these industries will evolve over the next five to 10 years and to what extent their impact will be magnified over this period.

    Here are some of the key takeaways:

    • Since the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) implemented its Part 107 regulations for unmanned aircraft in August 2016, the commercial drone industry in the US has taken off. 
    • Companies across the US have rushed to deploy drones to cut costs, boost operational efficiency, and open up new streams of revenue. Meanwhile, firms elsewhere in the world have taken notice and ramped up their own drone projects.
    • Unmanned aircraft have the potential to create the greatest business value in the construction, mining, and agriculture industries. The agriculture industry was a relatively early adopter of drones, and today one-third of farmers in the US plan to use at least one drone this year. Meanwhile, drones will have a less significant, yet noticeable, impact on media, telecommunications, and insurance businesses.
    • Drones will lead these industries to become highly data-driven in the coming years, making the aircraft a must-have for companies to keep pace with their competitors. They will allow businesses to synthesize and analyze trends in their workflows to bolster their operational efficiency and predict problems before they happen.

    In full, the report:

    • Analyzes the development of drone use across five different industries.
    • Offers a look at how drone use in these industries will evolve over the coming years.
    • Sizes the market for enterprise drone shipments over a seven-year period, both in the US and abroad.

    This is a preview of the Influencer Marketing (2018) research report from Business Insider Intelligence. To learn more about the top platforms, as well as strategies for social media influencer marketing, click here. Current subscribers can read the report here.

    Social Media Influencer Marketing Success Metrics

    The concept of a brand hiring a popular personality to promote a product or service isn't new, and brands know that celebrity endorsements can sell products. In the age of social media, however, brands are finding new ways to leverage popular figures as brand ambassadors, and these people aren't necessarily famous actors, singers, or athletes.

    How brands are leveraging social media influencer marketing

    While brands certainly continue to tap celebrities for endorsement deals, they’re also starting to enlist social media personalities, broadly known as “influencers,” for advertising campaigns. Social influencers generally focus on specific content areas — like fashion, beauty, parenting, or gaming — and cater their content to a specific vertical.

    A new report from BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, identifies the ways brands can find and manage relationships with social media influencers. It notes the most engaging industry verticals, the pitfalls to avoid, and the opportunities to cash-in on. Finally, it explores how major social platforms are increasingly building out tools that enable their most popular users to build their personal brands.

    Here are some of the key takeaways from the report:

    • Influencer marketing ad spend is poised to reach between $5 billion and $10 billion in 2022. Taking the midpoint of $7.5 billion as a base case, this represents a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 38%.
    • Brands need to fine-balance providing influencers with enough creative freedom, while also ensuring the messaging positively reflects the brand. Nearly 40% of influencers believe that overly restrictive content guidelines are one of the biggest mistakes brands and agencies make when working with them. 
    • Influencers tend to have higher user engagement than content generated by brands. The average influencer engagement rate across industry verticals is 5.7%. As a comparison, the average engagement rate for brands on Instagram has fluctuated between 2-3% in the past year. 
    • Authenticity is key for influencer marketing messaging. Brands should give influencers sufficient creative freedom to keep posts authentic, as it makes posts less likely to be dismissed by users. Other best practices include repurposing influencer content for multiple platforms, evaluating the audience and following of an influencer, and leveraging data to optimize future campaigns. 

     In full, the report:

    • Outlines recent steps the top social platforms are taking for influencer posts.
    • Details the best practices brands should adopt when starting out with influencer marketing. 
    • Discusses the top verticals that are poised to benefit the most from influencer marketing, and which ones are growing. 
    • Highlights the factors that will be critical for compliance with social platforms and the FTC.

    steven mnuchin

    • Treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin called top bankers Sunday following a tumultuous month for US markets.
    • Monday, he will meet with top government officials overseeing the economy. 
    • On Sunday, Mnuchin addressed reports that Trump sought to fire Fed chairman Jay Powell following increased interest rates, tweeting a statement of denial. 

    The U.S. Treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin said on Sunday he held a series of phone conversations with top American bankers in what appeared to be a bid to ease nerves in financial markets, which have been steeped in turmoil for the last month.

    "Today I convened individual calls with the CEOs of the nation's six largest banks," Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a Twitter post.

    Mnuchin says the CEO's indicated that they're in good condition to maintain the markets and their everyday functioning.

    Tomorrow, Mnuchin is slated to meet with a group of government banking and finance officials that includes the Board of Governors of the Fed and members of the Securities and Exchange Commission. 

    The series of calls and meetings comes amid a rocky period for the government and markets.

    The government began what many politicians have projected to be a potentially lengthy partial shutdown Friday. Reports surfaced at the same time that President Donald Trump sought to fire Fed chairman Jay Powell after the bank increased interest rates for the fourth time under his leadership.

    Markets have also seen high volatility over the last month. Last week, the Dow fell by nearly 7 percent, showing the worst weekly average since 2008.

    The Insider Picks team writes about stuff we think you'll like. Business Insider has affiliate partnerships, so we get a share of the revenue from your purchase.

    caviar 4x3

    • Nothing says luxury quite like caviar. It's the perfect food for celebrations of all kinds, including ringing in the New Year.
    • We've rounded up the best caviar you can buy online to get the party started, including caviar from Marshallberg Farms, Olma, Tsar Nicoulai, and Marky's.

    There's no better way to lavish everyone around you with love than a jar of prehistoric roe. If Poseidon ever came up with a more delectable ambrosia, he was surely selfish and chose not to grace the rest of us with it.

    Flagrant status symbol though it may be, caviar, in all its decadence, has indeed been humbled throughout certain points in history.

    Despite being the epitome of wealth and power for Kings and Caliphs alike, during the 1800s in the United States, it was served with free lunch in saloons, where we're lucky to get peanuts or pretzels these days. Though the doling out of such a regality wasn't completely tactless. Because it was so salty, it would enhance thirst, and, hopefully, encourage patrons to drink more.

    Although you may not be able to get your hands on quite that much caviar, given the high price tag of the good stuff, at the very least, a judicious spoonful of the pearly little morsels of black gold is in high order.

    Sterlet and Beluga, the crème de la crème de la mer, are no longer available in the United States due to an alarming decline of those particular sturgeon, but Ossetra, Sevruga, Paddlefish, and others will still more than suffice.

    Just don't forget the blinis, the creme fraiche, and, of course, the champagne

    Here is the best caviar you can buy online:

    Read on in the slides below to learn more about our top picks.

    The best American-made Russian caviar

    Why you'll love it: Marshallberg Farms' caviar is the only Ossetra Russian sturgeon caviar produced in the United States, and it's delicious.

    Ossetra is a medium-grain caviar often associated with a clean but nutty taste. It's usually not as salty as other caviar, though that depends on the brine and how long they sit in it.

    Marshallberg Farms is based in North Carolina, and the company guarantees that it does not mix roe from different fish to compose your tin of caviar. This might sound snooty, but the flavor of a given caviar, and the consistency, will get a little lost if it's sourced from multiple fish, and blending roe is not preferred.

    You can read more about Marshallberg Farms on its website and Roads and Kingdoms.

    Shop Marshallberg Farms caviar on Amazon, starting at $142/30g



    The best Kaluga caviar

    Why you'll love it: Olma's Kaluga caviar is as close as you'll get to Beluga caviar with its firm, juicy, creamy taste.

    Kaluga, or river caviar, is as close as we can get to the illustrious Beluga, the king of caviar, but also the most endangered sturgeon.

    The United States has had a ban in place on the import of Beluga caviar in an attempt to stem overharvesting. Kaluga, however, still comes pretty darn close.

    Olma has been serving up caviar in New York City since 2001, and offers a direct line on the best of the best. You can even buy it on Amazon and get fast shipping straight to your door.

    Shop Olma Caviar on Amazon, starting at $110/oz



    The best Californian white sturgeon caviar

    Why you'll love it: Tsar Nicoulai uses buttery, smooth, clean, single-source eggs from California's central valley to make its caviar.

    Tsar Nicoulai has been supplying the United States with white sturgeon caviar from California for more than 30 years.

    The company pushes sustainability while still maintaining high standards, making Tsar Nicoulai a boutique caviar house that sits at the intersection of decadence and morality. The company also puts out a marvelous, much more affordable salmon roe.

    Shop Tsar Nicoulai at Williams-Sonoma, starting at $199.95/2 oz

    quarterly global fintech fundingThis is a preview of a research report from Business Insider Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about Business Insider Intelligence, click here. Current subscribers can read the report here.

    Fintech hubs — cities where startups, talent, and funding congregate — are proliferating globally in tandem with ongoing disruption in financial services. 

    These hubs are all vying to become established fintech centers in their own right, and want to contribute to the broader financial services ecosystem of the future. Their success depends on a variety of factors, including access to funding and talent, as well as the approach of relevant regulators.

    This report compiles various fintech snapshots, which together highlight the global spread of fintech, and show where governments and regulatory bodies are shaping the development of national fintech industries. Each provides an overview of the fintech industry in a particular country or state in Asia or Europe, and details what is contributing to, or hindering its further development. We also include notable fintechs in each geography, and discuss what the opportunities or challenges are for that particular domestic industry.

    Here are some of the key takeaways:

    • Most countries in Europe have made some formal attempt to foster the development of domestic fintech industries, with Germany and Ireland seeing the best results so far. France, meanwhile, got off to a slow start, but that's starting to change. 
    • The Asian fintech scene took off later than in the US or Europe, but it's seen rapid growth lately, particularly in India, China, and Singapore.
    • The increasing importance of technology-enabled products and services within the financial services ecosystem means the global fintech industry isn't going anywhere. 
    • Fintech hubs will continue to proliferate, with leaders emerging in each region.
    • The future fintech landscape will be molded by regulatory bodies — national and international — as they seek to mitigate the risks, and leverage the opportunities, presented by fintech. 

     In full, the report:

    • Explores the fintech industry in six countries or states, and identifies individual fintech hubs.
    • Highlights successful fintechs in each region.
    • Outlines the challenges and opportunities each country or state faces. 
    • Gives insight into the future of the global fintech industry.

    • President Donald Trump once boasted that his administration was staffed by notable members of the US armed forces.
    • Those service members will soon be leaving his administration.
    • The latest former Marine Corps general who is voluntarily leaving the administration is Defense Secretary James Mattis.

    US Defense Secretary James Mattis' upcoming departure from the Trump administration was largely expected in the near term, but his official resignation letter on Thursday still shook Washington, DC, and caught defense officials and lawmakers off guard.

    The news follows the departures of a series of high-profile military generals in the White House, namely Marines who have served with distinction throughout the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Many of these Marines have now left the Trump White House amid numerous reports of disagreements or criticisms of Trump.

    The photo above, taken in 2013, marked the first time six four-star Marines Corps generals were actively serving in the Marines.

    • Jim Mattis, the Secretary of Defense, announced his resignation on Thursday and was expected to leave by February. On Sunday, his departure was accelerated to January 1 after Trump announced his acting replacement, Patrick Shanahan, was set to take over. Mattis was a four-star general who led the US Central Command and was celebrated as a top choice to lead the world's most powerful military. He cited disagreements with Trump's policies as the reason for his decision to resign from the Defense Department.
    • John Kelly, the former White House chief of staff, was a four-star Marine Corps general who once led the US Southern Command. He served as secretary of the Department of Homeland Security before being selected by Trump as his chief of staff. Kelly had been expected to bring order to a chaotic West Wing. But he faced headwinds and sometimes clashed with Trump on a number of issues.
    • Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, served as the commandant of the Marine Corps and the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan. His term as the top commander of the US military ends in September 2019. Trump announced US Army chief of staff Gen. Mark Milley as his replacement, despite some reported concerns from Mattis.
    • John Allen, the former commander of the US-led coalition in Afghanistan, did not serve in the Trump administration. Instead, he was an outspoken critic of Trump throughout his campaign and presidency. During a speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2016, Allen endorsed Hillary Clinton and likened Trump's presidency to a "business transaction" that conducts "illegal activities." Trump fired back at Allen through a tweet and said his fight against ISIS "failed badly."

    The circumstances of the officers' various exits may vary, but Trump's generals — service members he spoke of highly throughout his campaign and the early days of his presidency — have now left an apparent void in the White House.

    In addition to the Marines who will have left the Trump administration, H.R. McMaster, a three-star Army general, was fired as Trump's national security adviser in March. His tenure was marked by numerous reports of disagreements with Trump, who once described him as "a man of tremendous talent and tremendous experience."

    McMaster replaced another US Army three-star general as national security adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn, who was fired after it was discovered he lied to the FBI and senior White House officials about his communications with Russian officials.

    This is a preview of a research report from Business Insider Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about Business Insider Intelligence, click here.

    Emerging markets are going to be essential for e-commerce growth, as retailers in developed markets may soon reach saturation in terms of consumer growth.

    APAC CAGR

    For example, almost half of US households now have a Prime membership, diminishing Amazon's growth potential in the country. Meanwhile, in China, the world's largest e-commerce market, nearly half of the population is actively making online purchases, leaving little room for growth. 

    However, India, Southeast Asia, and Latin America are worth keeping an eye on. E-commerce penetration rates in these areas hover between 2-6%, presenting a huge opportunity for future growth as online sales gain traction. Moreover, these regions are expected to grow at compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) of 31%, 32%, and 16%, respectively, through 2021.

    This report compiles several e-commerce snapshots, which together highlight the most notable emerging markets in various regions. Each provides an overview of the e-commerce industry in a particular country, discusses influential retailers, and provides insights into the opportunities and challenges for that specific domestic industry.

    Here are some of the key takeaways:

    • Emerging markets are going to be essential for e-commerce growth, as retailers in developed markets may soon reach saturation in terms of consumer growth.
    • India is the clear overall leader in e-commerce potential, but countries in Southeast Asia and Latin America are also worth keeping an eye on. Within Southeast Asia, Indonesia shows the most promise for retailers, as the government is loosening restrictions on foreign investments, and its massive population is gaining spending power and more access to internet. Meanwhile, Mexico is a retailer's best bet for expansion in Latin America, due to its stable economy and rising middle class, but Brazil may be gearing up to steal the top spot.
    • However, doing business in these regions can be difficult. In most of these emerging markets, infrastructure is underdeveloped and the population is largely unbanked, making digital payments a challenge.
    • If retailers can build a brand presence in these markets while online shopping is still in its nascent stages, they may become market leaders as e-commerce takes off in the regions. Moreover, these markets could provide new sources of growth for companies that would otherwise stagnate in more mature e-commerce markets.

     In full, the report:

    • Explores the e-commerce industry in India, Southeast Asia, and Latin America.
    • Highlights the leading country in each region, as well as key e-commerce players there. 
    • Outlines the challenges and opportunities each region faces.
    • Gives insight into how these emerging markets may shape the future of e-commerce.

    Oppo Find X

    • There may be no better-looking smartphone than the Find X smartphone.
    • The Find X was made by the Chinese electronics maker Oppo, one of the most popular phone makers in the world — it was China's top brand in 2016, according to IDC.
    • Oppo came up with a clever system to give its phone a true edge-to-edge display, by hiding the camera when it's not in use. It's certainly one of the most futuristic phones we've ever seen.

    Oppo unveiled the Find X in June, and it made a lot of waves online thanks to its stunning design.

    The Find X looks similar to Apple's iPhone XS but features thinner bezels, or borders around the display, and most notably doesn't include a "notch," like the iPhone has.

    The photos below come courtesy of Lewis Hilsenteger with the Unbox Therapy channel on YouTube, who managed to get his hands on the Find X and filmed it for all to see.

    First, take a look at this thing. It is gorgeous.



    The Find X features a 6.4-inch OLED display made by Samsung, which makes the best smartphone displays in the world — they're featured on iPhones and Samsung's own Galaxy S and Note phones.



    While the front of the phone looks like an iPhone X, the back is sloped and rounded like a Galaxy S9.
