on the increase

The future of tech dept is likely to expand with javascript frameworks coming out seemingly at a rate of one a week via npm. Possibly we're working to a point where no one understands how to fix anything.

hatti
Bronze badge

The House of Lords wants to make sure data used by AI systems is not monopolised and the technology is developed on ethical guidelines.

And whose ethical guidelines would they be?

Softly softly catchee data

“It needs to be a conversation that starts with consent, rather than forcing people to do things,” he says, adding that a “coalition of the willing” is more effective than forcing boroughs to open up their data.

Digital word salad, what could possibly go wrong?

Yorkshire cops have begun using on-the-spot fingerprint scanners

hatti

fine with it.

"There's no recognition of how breathtakingly invasive this proposal is," said Emma Norton of Liberty.

This is no less invasive than being finger printed at a police station surely and saves time and therefore money to boot. Possibly Liberty's position on this is to ensure those that shouldn't be walking the streets are free to do so.

If it is going to be used for Pizza delivery, there will still need to be a compartment for the disenfranchised teenager to carry the Pizza to your door, otherwise you'll have to actually stand up and walk to the front door, then down the path to collect the cheese and topping savoury treat which seems like too much work.

Biggest problem with hate speech is where the line is and who gets to decide.

Uber: Hackers stole 57m passengers, drivers' info. We also bribed the thieves $100k to STFU

hatti
Bronze badge

Word salad.

While I can’t erase the past, I can commit on behalf of every Uber employee that we will learn from our mistakes. We are changing the way we do business, putting integrity at the core of every decision we make and working hard to earn the trust of our customers.

The usual and predictable get out of jail free company word salad. If Uber are putting integrity at the core of every decision, how come they refused to pay for drivers English tests because they considered them too difficult, what happened to the integrity that day.

I wonder if you could get done for drunk in charge of a jet pack. Imagining jet packed fuzz doing a sky chase with someone who strapped in and pressed launch after leaving the Dog and Duck.

If this were an accident it would have been reported at the time and not come to light via a series of bizarre and unfeasible stories. IMHO Madsen is a revolting and monstrous liar. I feel so sorry for the Wall family having to deal with this, simply shocking.

Canoeing test

I'm wondering if there's an on the spot test for a suspect canoeist such as paddle in a straight line for 20 yards without rolling over, get in and out without it going all wobbly and carrying it along the bank without hitting anything.

80% fail rate.
