NYT: Deadly 'Misguided Assumptions' Were Built Into Boeing's 737 Max

The automated MCAS system in the Boeing 737 Max played a role in two fatal crashes. But today the New York Times reports that a year before they'd finished developing the plane, Boeing "made the system more aggressive and riskier," and that "test pilots, engineers and regulators were left in the dark about a fundamental overhaul." While the original version relied on data from at least two types of sensors, the ultimate used just one, leaving the system without a critical safeguard. In both do...

Gut Bacteria May Contribute To Autism Symptoms, Mouse Study Finds

Suren Enfiajyan shared this story from Science magazine: Genes are a powerful driver of risk for autism, but some researchers suspect another factor is also at play: the set of bacteria that inhabits the gut. That idea has been controversial, but a new study offers support for this gut-brain link. It reveals that mice develop autismlike behaviors when they are colonized by microbes from the feces of people with autism. The result doesn't prove that gut bacteria can cause autism. But it suggests ...

This week he responded on the Google group golang-nuts to a blogger who'd argued that "Go is Google's language, not ours."

CHEAP: Lose some timber with this Lenovo fitness wearable, now 40% off

Fitness wearables sit on a scale. On one hand, you’ve got miniature supercomputers that can do almost everything. That’s your Apple Watch or preferred WearOS device.

The Lenovo HX06 is an example of that austere simplicity. This black bit of plastic, metal, and glass doesn’t have much in terms of bells and whistles. It tells the time, obviously. It tra...

3 tech execs who tried to create new smartphone and PC operating systems explain why Huawei’s plan to build an Android replacement will be almost impossible (AAPL, GOOGL, FB)

Huawei's effort to develop and establish its own smartphone operating system to replace Google's Android could be doomed from the start.  Building the operating system itself isn't a huge challenge, say executives who have experience with upstart platforms. The much more daunting task would be for it to replicate the apps and services that Google has created or can be found in the Google Play store, they say. Without such apps and services, they explain, its operating system has little chance ...

Google Assistant's AI Is Actually Humans In 'A White-Collar Sweatshop', Complain Workers

This week the Guardian ran an expose on Google Assistant (Google's version of Alexa or Siri) "Interpreting a spoken request isn't magic, rather it has taken a team of underpaid, subcontracted linguists to make the technology possible." "It's smoke and mirrors if anything," said a current Google employee who, as with the others quoted in this story, spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the press. "Artificial intelligence is not that artificial; it's human...
