Google called the allegations “factually wrong” and did not respond to a request to elaborate... Brian McMath, an assistant attorney general under Balderas, said recent testing by his team and outside technical experts found that students aged below 13 who are given Chromebooks by their schools have their Web browsing, location, passwords and other personal information transmitted to Google.

The draft recommendations emphasized human control of AI systems. “Human beings should exercise appropriate levels of judgment and remain responsible for the development, deployment, use, and outcomes of DoD AI systems,” it reads.
The DIB guidelines and the accompanying implementation documentation, go well beyond the brief and largely superficial vision statements on AI issued by tech giants like Google, Facebook and Microsoft...
Why don’t you shut the hell up. Your bias is showing. I bet you’ve never been a prosecutor or have any idea how DOJ works. People like you-who want to use the justice system for political reasons-are both dangerous and ignorant. The case was-like you-an obvious loser. https://t.co/MdOq8u78Yy
The Deep State is replaying the same playbook from 2016 in a preemptive challenge against another Trump victory w sudden new "intelligence" about Putin interfering on his behalf in 2020. They are so transparent. But b/c Repubs haven't challenged the ICA, why change the playbook?
Digital Trends spoke to CEO Samuel Gong about what benefits integrating graphene into a lithium battery will bring, and they’re extremely compelling. Even better news is that the tech is almost ready for mainstream use.
One day after South Korea reported its first coronavirus death and shortly after all of Daegu city's 2.5 million residents were put on lock-down, the number of covid-19 cases in South Korea has exploded, with 52 new cases reported overnight, representing a third of all the nation's cases.
We are now in a full-blown national security crisis. By trying to prevent the flow of intelligence to Congress, Trump is abetting a Russian covert operation to keep him in office for Moscow’s interests, not America’s. https://t.co/Vj6lUV5ZNu
In a tweet on Thursday evening, Mr. Schiff said that it appeared that Mr. Trump was “again jeopardizing our efforts to stop foreign meddling” by objecting to Congress being informed of interference attempts.
“Paying people to generate fake new stories in order to delegitimize me and those I represent isn’t a good look. Desperation is a sad mobilizing tool.” No evidence has emerged that anyone has been paid to make up fake stories about her allegedly marrying her brother...
For the study, published in prestigious journal The Lancet, the team used an MRI machine to examine the brains of 652 participants... To wit, bullies’ cortexes were substantially thinner — and their entire brains had less surface area — than the non-bully brains scanned by the scientists. Inverse‘s concise summary: bullies “have smaller brains.”...
Breaking: @DevinNunes says he believes feds began investigating Trump campaign ties to Russia in late 2015, far earlier than the July 31, 2016 start date the FBI has given as official start for Crossfire Hurricane probe. https://t.co/k8fTHbRVSr

A group of parents represented by Wisconsin Institute of Law and Liberty sued after the Madison Metropolitan School District refused to alter its policy of concealing childrens’ transgender behavior and related medical records from parents, no matter how young the child is. The district oversees children as young as preschoolers, and teaches gender identity politics to all ages, which research suggests may contribute to children identifying as transgender.
The chemistry to do such a thing has been known for a while, and involves a reaction called hydrogenation—swapping the oxygen atoms in the carbon dioxide with hydrogen atoms, to yield hydrocarbons like methane (the primary ingredient in natural gas). So far it’s been nowhere close to economic... But that could be about to change... The breakthrough: a cheaper, more sustainable way to make nanocatalysts that work as well as platinum but use the far more plentiful metal molybdenum—and can be manufactured 90% cheaper at “low” temperatures closer to 600 degrees.
It took three months to excavate the first tunnel, with work taking place 40 feet underground. Musk hopes to eventually expand the transit system to other parts of Las Vegas, including the Strip and the airport, and even to have a connecting tunnel running all the way to Los Angeles; LA residents may one day be able to hop over to Vegas for an afternoon (or Vegas residents go catch a glimpse of the ocean for a few hours).
