How Far Can You Go to Resist Filmers of a Viral Video?

The New York Times tells the story of a pervasive new nuisance: public videography with smartphones: Recently I saw eight seconds of video that capture this problem in its most extreme form. A boy and a girl, who appear to be of high school age, are walking into Panda Express when a third teenager with blond hair stops them in the doorway. He brings with him the energy of the hustler or the man-on-the-street interview host, and the couple are temporarily frozen, caught between suspicion and cou...

Facebook apologizes after AI puts ‘Primates’ label on video of Black men

Facebook users who recently watched a video from a British tabloid featuring Black men saw an automated prompt from the social network that asked if they would like to “keep seeing videos about Primates,” causing the company to investigate and disable the artificial intelligence-powered feature that pushed the message. Facebook on Friday apologized for what it called “an unacceptable error” and said it was looking into the recommendation feature to “prevent this from happening again.” The video,...

Linus Torvalds Jokes About Celebrations for Linux's 30th Anniversary

Despite Linux reaching its 30th anniversary, "most outside the tech industry will be unaware that Linux has reached such a milestone," writes ZDNet, "even though the project has had a huge impact on everything from smartphones to cloud computing."

Climate Change Is Bankrupting America's Small Towns

That downward spiral now threatens low-income communities in the path this week of Hurricane Ida and those hit by the recent flooding in Tennessee — hamlets regularly pummeled by storms that are growing more frequent and destructive because of climate change.

Is America's FTC Investigating McDonalds' Right to Repair McFlurry Machines?

America's consumer-protection agency has apparently launched a "preliminary investigation" into how often McDonalds franchise owners are allowed to repair their own McFlurry-making equipment, reports CBS Moneywatch (citing an article Tuesday in the Wall Street Journal). The machine's manufacturer insists that the product's warranty is void if purchasers attempt to fix machines on their own, according to the Wall Street Journal. But CBS MoneyWatch adds: It's illegal for companies to make warr...

Just How Computationally Complex Is a Single Brain Neuron?

Google’s ‘pay-per-click’ ad model makes it harder to find what you’re looking for

Over the past 25 years, the name “Google” has become synonymous with the idea of searching for anything online. In much the same way “to Hoover” means to use a vacuum cleaner, dictionaries have recognized “to Google” as meaning to undertake an online search using any available service. Former competitors such as AltaVista and AskJeeves are long dead, and existing alternatives such as Bing and DuckDuckGo currently pose little threat to Google’s dominance. But shifting our web searching habits to ...
