Bird and Lime are scooting along, backed by hundreds of millions in venture capital.

Google Will Now Auto-Delete Some User Data -- If You Ask

The change gives people more control over their information, but it also may stop some users from opting to block out Google’s data collection altogether. Google has struggled to convince customers and regulators that it respects their privacy and keeps the reams of data it collects on people safe. It shut down the Google Plus social network last year after finding a glitch that exposed the personal information of half a million users.

Universities across the world are conducting major research on artificial intelligence (A.I.), as are organisations such as the Allen Institute, and tech companies including Google and Facebook. A likely result is that we will soon have A.I. approximately as cognitively sophisticated as mice or dogs. Now is the time to start thinking about whether, and under what conditions, these A.I.s might deserve the ethical protections we typically give to animals. Discussions of "A.I. rights" or "robot rig...
