Today, in the Microsoft Connect(); 2018 keynote, Scott Guthrie announced the availability of Visual Studio 2019 Preview 1. This is the first preview of the next major version of Visual Studio. In this Preview, we've focused on a few key areas, such as making it faster to open and work with projects stored in git repositories, improving IntelliSense with Artificial Intelligence (AI) (a feature we call Visual Studio IntelliCode), and making it easier to collaborate with your teammates by integrating Live Share. With each preview, we'll be adding capabilities, improving performance, and refining the user experience, and we absolutely want your feedback.

It seems like we have a lot of developer-oriented news today. As I've repeatedly said, I'm not a programmer in any way, shape, or form, so I tend to stick to just shutting up entirely (and there was much rejoicing). Luckily, knowledgeable folk usually step up in the comments.

          Mencengangkan, Ada 100 Wilayah di Otak yang Tak Pernah Terungkap      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Otak dikenal sebagai salah satu organ manusia yang sangat rumit. Dan pada kenyataannya, masih ada bagian otak yang belum terungkap.

Penelitian terkini menunjukkan adanya peta baru yang memiliki 100 area di otak. Area tersebut belum pernah dilaporkan dalam penelitian manapun sebelumnya.

Area baru itu sesungguhnya berkaitan dengan semua indera, gerak, dan beberapa fungsi lain, seperti pemecahan masalah dan mengatur emosi. Area ini dikenal sebagai korteks serebral yang letaknya di lapisan luar jaringan saraf otak.

Ukuran Variatif

Dikutip dari India Times, profesor neurosains dan psikologi Universitas Yale, David McCormick, menyontoh sederhana dari area otak ini, yaitu menganggapnya selembar pizza besar dan kardus yang melindunginya.

Kembali ke dalam otak, saat ini para ilmuwan sedang mengumpulkan data untuk membantu mengidentifikasikan area baru ini. Ketebalan cortex ini, misalnya, memiliki ukuran yang variatif.

Teknik FMRI

Ilustrasi Otak (iStockPhoto)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Di beberapa tempat, area ini memiliki ketebalan 1 milimeter dan yang lain, setebal 4,5 milimeter.

Saat ini, penelitian mengenai aliran sinyal ke otak menggunakan teknik FMRI. Teknik ini menggunakan citra dari aliran darah di otak dan menambahkan informasi mengenai isolasi lemak di area sekitar saraf otak.

Pembagian Otak Manusia

Ilustrasi Otak (iStockPhoto)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Dengan metode ini, para peneliti dapat membagi otak manusia menjadi 180 area kortikal, termasuk 97 area yang baru ditemukan.

Salah satu daerah ini, misalnya, alur besar yang disebut POS2 yang tepat di depan korteks visual, merupakan bagian dari otak yang memungkinkan manusia untuk melihat.

Peta tersebut, sebagian besar berguna untuk upaya penelitian yang akan datang. Salah satunya artificial intelligence (AI) alias kecerdasan buatan.

          South Korea Is Trialing Blockchain Voting — Here’s What That Means      Cache   Translate Page      
South Korea Blockchain Voting

South Korea will test out a new blockchain voting system this month, sources close to the developments have confirmed to Bitcoin Magazine. Developed by the country’s National Election Commission (NEC) and its Ministry of Science and ICT, the distributed ledger system is based on IBM’s Hyperledger Fabric and will be used to authenticate voters and save voting results in real time.

South Korean officials believe a blockchain voting system will increase both security and transparency, thereby improving people’s trust in digital voting. The NEC initially ran an online voting system dubbed “K-voting” back in 2013, but, despite 5.64 million users, trust remained low due to fraud and hacking concerns.

The system will be trialed in the private sector by Handysoft Consortium, which provides collaboration systems for smart work environments. The NEC says the trial is a pilot test designed to determine the viability of blockchain technology, wherein a small sample of users will use the pilot to answer a questionnaire.

With the pilot, the voting system will be used to gather responses from surveys issued by the Korea Internet and Security Agency — the region’s official internet content watchdog — on user experience, including satisfaction among trial participants. Their personal information is then collected from the user group administrator and uploaded directly to the blockchain system, where it is stored for the next seven days before being deleted.

The NEC says the plan is to eventually introduce the blockchain online voting system in democratic elections through a step-by-step pilot operation that will check the safety and stability of the system. The introduction of the voting platform into public official elections like National Assembly elections, local elections or presidential elections will be a policy decision made via the nation’s legislative branch.

Should legislation move forward, users will be able to cast their votes in the future using either their personal computers or mobile phones instead of in-person or by mail. Data recorded during the elections will be saved to the distributed network, so voters can see the progress of the elections as more votes are cast.

The NEC is confident the system will eliminate the possibilities of hacking and voter fraud. In addition, the organization says it will also add elements like big data, internet of things (IoT) technology and artificial intelligence (AI), granted the system proves popular enough.

South Korea is not the first nation to experiment with blockchain voting. Japan’s city of Tsukuba became the first area to experiment with the technology for voting purposes back in September of 2018. Voters’ identities were verified utilizing the Japanese equivalent of social security cards. From there, accounts were created for citizens wishing to vote on what the Japan Times called “social contribution projects.”

Unfortunately, the system was not without its problems. Many voters reported forgetting their login passwords and being unable to cast their votes within the appropriate timeframes. Furthermore, there was little clarity offered once a vote was cast on whether it had been counted.

West Virginia also experimented with blockchain voting during the 2018 midterm elections. Designed by mobile voting platform Voatz, the system was designed for American troops serving overseas who wished to cast their votes in the November federal elections. Voatz used facial-recognition software to match voters’ faces to their government-issued ID cards. From there, troop members could ultimately cast their ballots, which were then anonymized and recorded via the blockchain.

Machine learning masters the fingerprint to fool biometric systems 

Fingerprint authentication systems are a widely trusted, ubiquitous form of biometric authentication, deployed on billions of smartphones and other devices worldwide. Yet a new study from Michigan State University and New York University reveals a surprising level of vulnerability in these systems.CSE Professor Arun Ross and colleagues have learned that partial fingerprint-based systems on smartphones can be compromised by using strategically created fake prints.

Using a neural network trained to synthesize human fingerprints, the research team evolved a fake fingerprint that could potentially fool a touch-based authentication system for up to one in five people. 

Much the way that a master key can unlock every door in a building, these “DeepMasterPrints” use artificial intelligence to match many prints stored in fingerprint databases and could thus theoretically unlock a large number of devices. 

The work builds on earlier research led by Nasir Memon, NYU computer scientist, and Arun Ross, Michigan State University professor of computer science and engineering. They coined the term “MasterPrint” to describe how partial fingerprint-based systems can be compromised by using strategically created fake prints. 

“As fingerprint sensors become smaller in size, it is imperative for the resolution of the sensor to be significantly improved for it to capture additional fingerprint features,” Ross said. “If resolution is not improved, the distinctiveness of a user’s fingerprint will be inevitably compromised. The empirical analysis conducted in this research clearly substantiates this.” 

Devices typically allow users to enroll several different finger images, and a match with any enrolled partial print is enough to confirm identity. Partial fingerprints are less likely to be unique than full prints, and their earlier research demonstrated that enough similarities exist between partial prints to create MasterPrints capable of matching many stored partials in a database. 

In the new study, doctoral student Philip Bontrager and computer scientist Julian Togelius from NYU along with their collaborators, including Memon and Ross, took this concept further, training a machine-learning algorithm to generate synthetic fingerprints as MasterPrints. The researchers created complete images of these synthetic fingerprints, a process that has twofold significance. First, it is yet another step toward assessing the viability of MasterPrints against real devices, which the researchers have yet to test; and second, because these images replicate the quality of fingerprint images stored in fingerprint-accessible systems, they could potentially be used to launch a brute force attack against a secure cache of these images. 

The new study was presented at the IEEE International Conference of Biometrics: Theory, Applications and Systems by Philip Bontrager, the first author of the paper. 

“These experiments demonstrate the need for multi-factor authentication and should be a wake-up call for device manufacturers about the implications of artificial fingerprint attacks,” Bontrager said. 

Use your fingerprint to unlock your smartphone? Can you trust it?This research has applications in fields beyond security. Togelius noted that their Latent Variable Evolution method used here to generate fingerprints can also be used to make designs in other industries – notably game development. The technique has already been used to generate new levels in popular video games. 

A National Science Foundation grant supported the work. The research team also includes postdoctoral fellow Aditi Roy, who was lead author for the original MasterPrint paper.

  • A high-profile security and encryption expert at Apple has left the company to join the American Civil Liberties Union
  • Joh Callas is joining the ACLU to focus on fighting government surveillance and efforts to install "back doors" on tech platforms as well as exploring issues like artificial intelligence.  
  • Callas' move comes as tech workers become increasingly engaged and active about how tech is used for everything from censorship to discrimination.

A senior Apple security expert left for a much lower-paying job at the American Civil Liberties Union this week, the latest sign of increasing activity on policy issues by Silicon Valley privacy specialists and other engineers.

Jon Callas, who led a team of hackers breaking into pre-release Apple products to test their security, started Monday in a two-year role as technology fellow at the ACLU. Prior to his latest stint at Apple, Callas designed an encryption system to protect data on Macs and co-founded communications companies Silent Circle, Blackphone and PGP Corp.

FinCEN and Federal Banking Regulators Issue a Joint Statement to Encourage Innovative Industry Approaches to BSA/AML Compliance

 

WASHINGTON — The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), along with the other federal banking regulators and the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), today issued a joint statement to encourage depository institutions to consider, evaluate, and, where appropriate, responsibly implement innovative approaches to meet their Bank Secrecy Act/anti-money laundering (BSA/AML) compliance obligations in order to strengthen the financial system against illicit financial activity.

In the statement, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the FDIC, FinCEN, the National Credit Union Administration, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency recognize that private sector innovation, including adopting new technologies and finding new ways to use existing tools, can help banks identify and report money laundering, terrorist financing, and other illicit financial activity.  To assist depository institutions in this effort, the statement makes clear that the agencies are committed to continued engagement with the private sector and other interested parties.

“New technology, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, can provide better strategies for banks of all sizes to better manage money-laundering and terrorist-financing risks, while reducing the cost of compliance,” said FDIC Chairman Jelena McWilliams.

Institutions are becoming increasingly innovative and sophisticated in their approaches to BSA/AML compliance, commensurate with their risk profiles.  For example, some banks and credit unions are building or enhancing internal financial intelligence units devoted to identifying vulnerabilities and threats.  Others are experimenting with digital identity technology to enhance their BSA/AML compliance programs. 

Each of the agencies has established, or will establish, projects or offices to support the implementation of responsible innovation and new technology in the financial system.  While bank management should continue to follow existing protocols for communication with their respective regulators, these projects and offices may serve as points of contact to facilitate communication related to innovation and new technology.

The agencies also welcome industry feedback on how they can best support innovative efforts through explanations of, or updates to, supervisory processes, regulations, and guidance.  Those wishing to share such feedback in writing may do so by sending their submission electronically to FinCEN at FRC@fincen.gov.

Today’s joint statement is the second statement resulting from a working group formed by the agencies and Treasury’s Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence that focuses on improving the effectiveness and efficiency of the BSA/AML regime.  On October 3, 2018, the agencies issued a joint Interagency Statement on Sharing Bank Secrecy Act Resources.

Read Statement

Congress created the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in 1933 to restore public confidence in the nation’s banking system. The FDIC insures deposits at the nation’s banks and savings associations, 5,479 as of September 30, 2018. It promotes the safety and soundness of these institutions by identifying, monitoring and addressing risks to which they are exposed. The FDIC receives no federal tax dollars—insured financial institutions fund its operations.

FDIC press releases and other information are available on the Internet at www.fdic.gov, by subscription electronically (go to www.fdic.gov/about/subscriptions/index.html) and may also be obtained through the FDIC’s Public Information Center (877-275-3342 or 703-562-2200). PR-91-2018

          Alitalia vola alto nel multicloud      Cache   Translate Page      

Efficienza e customer satisfaction sono al centro della nuova infrastruttura tecnologia realizzata Roberto Tundo, Chief Information & Technology Officer di Alitalia con Ibm. Le nuove declinazioni multicloud e hybrid, sostengono i ricavi, la puntualità e la sicurezza informatica di Alitalia.

«Ogni progetto di innovazione aziendale – spiega Roberto Tundo – assume la valenza di un viaggio composto da tappe. È quello che abbiamo fatto in Alitalia traguardando, step by step, progressi significativi per noi e per i nostri clienti».

Un sistema informativo full hybrid multicloud

Poco più di due anni fa, ricorda Tundo, «siamo partiti da un sistema informativo che non era adeguato alla sfida competitiva che Alitalia deve affrontare nel quotidiano in un contesto in cui i competitor sonp aggressivi ed agili. Grazie a una tecnologia che corre veloce e attraverso una scelta di partner professionali di primo livello, affidabili e flessibili come Ibm, abbiamo compiuto un vero e proprio salto generazionale operando oggi con un sistema informativo di tipo full hybrid multicloud».

Tra i più importanti risultati abilitati da questa modernizzazione dell’infrastruttura tecnologica prosegue Tundo «occorre citare la regolarità e la puntualità con cui Alitalia vola in Italia, in Europa e nel mondo. Oggi Alitalia è stabilmente tra le prime posizioni in Europa sia per puntualità sia per regolarità dei voli operati, un risultato di grandissimo valore conquistato con la dedizione di tutti coloro che vi lavorano e con investimenti di importanza strategica. A ottobre, nella classifica della puntualità stilata dalla società indipendente FlightStats, Alitalia si è posizionata al secondo posto fra i principali vettori europei con l’84,7%, preceduta solo da KLM (88,3%) ed ottenendo giudizi di Eccellente, Molto Buono da quasi il 70% dei clienti».

Oggi, specifica ancora Tundo, Alitalia può operare il ricalcolo dell’operativo voli e l’ottimizzazione degli aeromobili ed equipaggi in tempo reale, a fronte di disruption dovute ad eventi avversi causati da meteo o contesto operativo. «Senza il supporto delle tecnologie più avanzate e la lettura veloce ed efficiente dei dati disponibili, questo risultato non sarebbe stato possibile. Anche l’estensione delle rotte a fronte di una sostanziale invarianza del numero di aeromobili wide-body di lungo raggio, costituisce un risultato sostenuto dalle innovazioni adottate in tutti i settori».

Digital journey in sicurezza

Di pari passo, ha avuto una decisa evoluzione la customer experience con un aumento considerevole dell’uso degli strumenti online: riferendoci ai primi sei mesi del 2018, i ricavi digitali di Alitalia hanno visto un incremento del 20% circa rispetto allo stesso periodo dell’anno precedente con un parallelo incremento a doppia cifra delle visite al sito Alitalia.com ed un utilizzo dei canali digitali per il check-in che ha superato in media il 60%, con punte del 70% in ambito domestico grazie anche all’estensione della finestra temporale per effettuare l’accettazione on-line da 24 a 48 ore prima della partenza.

La nuova architettura del sistema informativo oggi supporta anche i processi che governano l’accoglienza ed il catering a bordo, migliorati ad un punto tale che la rivista internazionale “Food and Travel” ha assegnato ad Alitalia il riconoscimento di “Miglior compagnia aerea 2018”.

Il digital journey, racconta Tundo, è stato meditato punto per punto: «I primi passi oramai più di due anni fa, sono stati dedicati alla messa in sicurezza dei dati aziendali: è stato avviato un percorso di virtualizzazione delle infrastrutture, sino a quel momento largamente assente, trasferito l’intero sistema informativo presso il Data Center di Ibm a Milano e, infine, reso operativo un servizio di Disaster Recovery in precedenza non presente».

Contestualmente si è arricchita la dotazione degli strumenti presenti nella cassetta degli attrezzi dell’ICT aziendale con l’adozione di soluzioni IaaS, SaaS, PaaS, sia in modalità cloud pubblico che privato, «per trasformare parallelamente il modello di lavoro verso una modalità che potesse rendere l’ICT un vero abilitatore digitale di Business. Una particolare attenzione è stata posta allo sviluppo, ex novo, di un programma di cybersecurity che tenesse conto non solo della necessità primaria difendere i dati aziendali e quelli dei Clienti, che ad Alitalia affidano propri dati sensibili, da forme e metodi di attacco sempre più articolati ed agguerriti, ma anche delle esigenze e parallele opportunità introdotte dal nuovo assetto del sistema informativo di Alitalia oggi costituito da servizi e piattaforme fisicamente presenti in varie parti del mondo. Oggi, a distanza di poco più di due anni dal quel momento, il sistema informativo di Alitalia è, in sintesi, un Full Hybrid Multicloud: un salto epocale guardando al punto di partenza ed al breve tempo impiegato per raggiungere tale assetto».

Il ruolo di Ibm in tre tappe

Come spiega Stefano Rebattoni, General Manager Global Technology Services di Ibm Italia, «Mettere le persone al centro, e non le tecnologie, è una prerogativa di Ibm. Per farlo, però, occorre puntare su una perfetta integrazione delle innovazioni disponibili. Il cloud, in particolare nella sua formulazione ibrida, offre questa possibilità. Sono state tre le tappe con cui abbiamo accompagnato il digital journey di Alitalia: in primis la trasformazione con cui abbiamo superato l’obsolescenza iniziale spostando le fondamenta dell’architettura tecnologica sul cloud e sul data center di IBM. La seconda tappa è stata focalizzata sulla virtualizzazione e l’allargamento ad un cloud ibrido capace di integrare tutte le potenzialità della precedente struttura IT. Infine, e in questo caso stiamo già parlando dei prossimi passi da compiere, abbiamo avviato una nuova orchestrazione tecnologica basata su multicloud».

Una trasformazione di questa portata richiede un approccio completo che includa tematiche di automazione, sicurezza e resilienza. Il percorso definito da Alitalia ed IBM si dispiega su una serie di domini supportati da tecnologie che, dove necessario, sono integrate con modalità open source o di altri vendor.

Alla base di tutto c’è la visione di una IT ibrida, muti-cloud e composta da servizi di tipo IaaS, PaaS e SaaS gestiti attraverso una governance complessiva unica e standardizzata. Ovvero, la IT ibrida e distribuita appare e viene gestita come un unicum.

Tecnologie per il multicloud

«Tra le varie tecnologie necessarie alla gestione multicloud – prosegue Rebattoni – vale la pena soffermarsi su alcune di loro: l’Ibm Broker per la selezione, configurazione e integrazione di servizi cloud, che utilizza tecnologie di analytics per la gestione e l’ottimizzazione dei costi; l’Ibm Cloud Resiliency Orchestrator per l’automazione delle operazioni legate al disaster recovery; la tecnologia Ibm SIEM per la gestione degli eventi di sicurezza; una piattaforma di containers as a service basata su Kubernetes e fornita dalla soluzione Ibm Cloud Private potenziata a sua volta dalla acquisizione di RedHat da parte Ibm per offrire ai clienti il best of breed per le applicazioni di nuova generazione».

Un ruolo di primaria importanza in questa digital reinvention, speiega Rebattoni, «è stato giocato della competenza e dell’esperienza nell’esecuzione di una tale trasformazione che abbraccia componenti tecnologiche, modelli di sourcing, topologia di delivery e processi di gestione. Ibm è stata in grado di supportare Alitalia nel suo percorso, fornendo le competenze e le metodologie necessarie insieme alle tecnologie e ai servizi cloud necessari».

Il prossimo digital journey con Red Hat

«I risultati ottenuti fino ad ora – chiosa Roberto Tundo – ci confermano la strategia ICT definita all’inizio del nostro viaggio, gli adeguamenti ad essa progressivamente applicati per tenere conto di un mondo digitale che viaggia a velocità impensabili appena cinque anni fa e ci incoraggiano a proseguire sulla via maestra della trasformazione digitale. I prossimi passi sono orientati a migliorare sempre di più l’efficienza delle infrastrutture tecnologiche e la Customer Experience dei viaggiatori. Abbiamo per questo previsto un piano di realizzazione di diversi progetti di IT transformation verso il multicloud integrato. L’approccio complessivo è basato su un’evoluzione parallela di applicazioni ed infrastruttura da una parte e soluzioni di gestione e di governance dall’altra. È inoltre a piano l’applicazione di tecnologie di intelligenza artificiale per l’automazione delle operazioni, per la reazione immediata ad eventuali disservizi e per il supporto alle decisioni di miglioramento continuo della IT e dei processi di gestione».

«Alcune novità degli ultimi mesi – aggiunge Rebattoni – dal Multi Cloud Manager all’acquisizione di Red Hat, aprono a ulteriori nuove vie di sviluppo per la digital journey di Alitalia. Oggi più che mai, quindi, si possono sfruttare queste tecnologie per gestire ambenti distribuiti su vari cloud e sviluppare applicazioni e microservizi arricchiti a loro volta da servizi cloud avanzati, come l’artificial intelligence, per costruire nuove modalità di interazione con i propri clienti oltre a creare nuovi mercati».

The U.S. Treasury Department's anti-money laundering unit and the federal banking regulators on Monday issued a joint statement to encourage banks and credit unions to consider "innovative approaches," including new technology such as artificial intelligence, to enhance their AML compliance programs. The protection provided by the document may not be enough to convince financial institutions to invest, however, sources say. Pilot programs launched by banks, in conjunction with existing processes aimed at compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), the primary U.S. AML law, "are an important means of testing and validating the effectiveness of innovative approaches," the joint statement says. "While (the regulators) may provide feedback, pilot programs in and of themselves should not subject banks to supervisory criticism even if the pilot programs ultimately prove unsuccessful.

          Legal analytics – when big data meets big law      Cache   Translate Page      

Automated data analysis has changed how scientists think about health research, and is helping uncover inefficiencies in transport systems. Now it’s making waves in the legal sector

Data is invading the legal system. In January, prosecutors in Germany presented a court with data from an iPhone suggesting a suspect was climbing stairs when it was alleged he had been dragging a body down a steep bank. It isn’t the only case of its kind: pacemaker data has been used in US courts as evidence against a wearer and data from fitness trackers has been used to indicate how, for example, a person’s lifestyle has changed after an injury.

The amount of data being created by the devices people carry around has grown exponentially, and had a knock-on impact across multiple professions. For criminal lawyers, it has increased the potential evidence that’s available, and this increase in data has been mirrored across all branches of law. It’s a trend that has the potential to completely disrupt the legal profession. “The biggest impact,” says James Rogers, a solicitor at Norton Rose Fulbright, “will not be caused by big data alone – rather it will be the combination of big data with other innovations, such as artificial intelligence (AI) or distributed ledger technologies.”

          The boundaries of ethics (GS 4,UPSC IAS Mains)      Cache   Translate Page      
He Jiankui, who claims to have made the world’s first gene-edited babies, deserves to be rapped but not condemned
In November, Chinese researcher He Jiankui set off a storm when he claimed that he had created the world’s first babies, a pair of twin girls, genetically edited with CRISPR-cas9. He said that the twins had genes now that protected them from HIV. Ideally this should have been a laudable scientific advancement. But Mr. He has been condemned, not only by peers in China but by geneticists, biotechnologists and ethicists worldover.

Mr. He broke the scientific and regulatory protocol by not vetting his experiments, which involved embryos and hopeful parents, by his organisation’s ethics committees. He also expounded on his work to non-scientists before submitting his work for peer-review. These are enough grounds to invalidate any medico-scientific investigation, however novel and groundbreaking. Yet the greater consternation is that an ethical red line has been transgressed.

Defining what is permissible
The current international consensus is that editing ‘germ line’ (or reproductive) cells of healthy humans is unethical and should only be used as a last resort as it could mean introducing unknown and potentially harmful changes in subsequent generations and even entire populations. While the principle of ‘do no harm’ pervades scientific practice, particularly in light of the early 20th century’s European and American experiments with eugenics, it shouldn’t be forgotten that ethical norms in science aren’t framed in a higher moral plane. What is permissible and ethical is also influenced by business interests, concerns among countries that they might lose a competitive advantage, and how medical advances have actually progressed.

It might seem that the Space Wars of the 1960s between the U.S. and the Soviet Union hark back to a bygone era, but the U.S. has on many occasions expressed concerns about China shrinking its scientific dominance. The National Science Foundation’s Science and Engineering Indicators 2018 report says, “The U.S. still leads by many S&T measures, but our lead is decreasing in certain areas that are important to our country … from gene editing to artificial intelligence … and it’s critical that we stay at the forefront of science to mitigate those risks.” When China announced its first CRISPR-led human trial in 2016, Nature quoted cancer immunotherapy expert Carl June as saying, “I think this is going to trigger ‘Sputnik 2.0’, a biomedical duel on progress between China and the United States.” Private companies in both countries have spent billions on the prospects of gene-editing. Thus where cash is already riding on a technology that’s still many years away, those who develop tools towards realising these goals can often justify their ventures, however ethically problematic they may be.

Various scientific works
Harvard geneticist George Church is on a project to resurrect a version of the extinct woolly mammoth. The purported reason for ‘de-extinctifying’ this animal is that the Asian elephant is endangered and susceptible to a herpes virus. Therefore, having a new closely related species, sans the virus, could mean saving it. There’s also a global warming kicker. The new species would live in the Siberian permafrost and punch holes in the snow and prevent tundra permafrost from melting and releasing greenhouse gases. While Professor Church agrees that these are speculative ideas, it would be naïve to assume that his work is of interest only to elephant conservationists. Every single step towards recreating the mammoth will inform understanding on how to safely and effectively alter cells to delete harmful genes and eventually promote ‘healthy ones’ in humans.

Before Robert Edwards and Patrick Steptoe were awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize for pioneering the technique of In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF), they were accused of meddling with nature, and no further public funding for their research was allowed.

The New York Times reported that a ‘three-parent baby’ (incorporating DNA from three people) was first created in the U.S. in the 1990s and no permissions were granted by the authorities for this. The doctors were denied public funding but there was no worldwide condemnation and no compelling reason other than infertility in some patients and educated guesses that motivated the doctors.

The history of IVF shows that there was no demonstrable case made for the necessity of test-tube babies and neither were there years of evidence from, say, primate studies for scientists to conclude that IVF babies would be as healthy or no more at risk from infections than naturally conceived babies. The evidence for its suitability and safety only emerged over time. Assuming that Mr. He’s done what he claims, he deserves to be rapped but not condemned or vilified. He’s broken a red light, not crossed a rubicon.

Entrepreneurship for All (EforAll) Cape Cod is bringing the “All Ideas Cape Cod Pitch Contest” to the town of Wellfleet for the first time ever on December 6th. The pitch contest will be held at the storied Wellfleet Preservation Hall, an iconic example of revitalization & restoration by a community. The pitch contest will take place 6pm-8:30pm Thursday, December 6th featuring seven pre-selected contestants and an eighth that will be added by audience vote on the night of the event. Entry for spectators is free, food will be provided and a cash bar will be available.

Each participant will be given two and a half minutes to pitch their business or non-profit idea to a panel of judges and the audience. At the end of the night EforAll will give away $2,750 in seed money to help launch ideas in the community. The first place finisher will win $1,000; second place $750; third place; $500 and audience favorite $500. The event is an example of EforAll’s mission of using innovative means to foster entrepreneurial growth on Cape Cod.

Amanda Kaiser, Program Manager of EforAll Cape explains:

“Cape Cod is an amazing place and it’s important to keep fostering economic and cultural growth. There are plenty of people with great ideas and they just need a place to start.We want the doers and thinkers of Cape Cod to have the opportunity to live, work & innovate here by giving them the resources and tools to be successful.”

Fueling Cape Cod’s economic engine by empowering people with ideas is the theme of the event. The participants were selected from a pool of applicants by a panel of volunteer readers from the community. The ideas being pitched at the event include a virtual pediatric clinic, an artificial intelligence called Konsul, a library for toys, a Cape Cod based subscription box service, a breast cancer survivors support system, a multipurpose publication company/bookstore/cafe & bar to encourage Cape Cod literary voices and a method to prevent workplace injuries.


          Со следующего года Ford будет использовать квантовый компьютер NASA      Cache   Translate Page      

Компания Ford, активно осваивающая новые технологии, рассказала о планах использования квантовых вычислений, позволяющих обрабатывать огромное количество информации гораздо быстрее, чем это могут делать обычные компьютеры. Уже в следующем году Ford получит доступ к квантовому компьютеру NASA, установленному в лаборатории по изучению квантового искусственного интеллекта (Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab) в Кремниевой долине. Возможности компьютера, функционирующего по принципу квантовой релаксации (квантового отжига), планируется применить для разработки решений в сфере управления большими автомобильными парками. Говоря точнее, специалисты Ford рассчитывают разработать для грузовых дизельных машин карты маршрутов, которые помогут поддерживать нормальную работу сажевых фильтров дизельных двигателей (diesel particle filter или DPF) .

Эти фильтры задерживают твердые частицы, содержащиеся в выхлопных газах. Фильтр поддерживается в рабочем состоянии за счет самоочистки путем сжигания частиц, но для этого необходимо определенное время поддерживать движение с постоянной высокой скоростью. В то же время, в городе маршрут чаще всего состоит из коротких участков, которые машина проходит на низкой скорости, и самоочищение фильтра невозможно, что приводит к снижению его эффективности. Исследователи намерены разработать оптимальный маршрут, учитывающий необходимость очистки фильтра для одного грузового автомобиля, осуществляющего доставку с множеством остановок. Далее этот сценарий будет использован для расчета маршрутов сразу всех транспортных средств в автопарке.

Поскольку при решении этой задачи необходимо учесть множество факторов, включая загруженность дорог, синхронизацию доставки и поведение людей, современные компьютеры позволяют получить решение только для ограниченного количества машин и мест. Предполагается, что квантовые вычисления помогут преодолеть это ограничение.

          The Best Holiday Gifts to Give Gamers, According to Gamers      Cache   Translate Page      

Finding the perfect holiday gift can be maddening (is this the color they’d want? Is it something they already have? Is it so last year?), but really, once you have a sense of a person’s taste, it’s not impossible. This season, we’ll be talking to members of various tribes to find out exactly what to get that college student, or serious home cook, or boss (who has everything) in your life. Think of it as a window into their brain trust—or, at least, a very helpful starting point. For our latest installment, we found ten gamers to tell us what they want for the holidays, from gaming headsets to functional Pokéballs.

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! ($60)

For last year’s gift guide for gamers, Emily Sheehan and Claire Manganiello, creative team at Mother New York, recommended Mario Odyssey for Switch. But today they are emphatic: “This year, Mario’s dead to us. 2018 is all about the Pokémon Switch. Eevee and Pikachu are both featured, looking cute as heck.” Amanda Cosmos, QA lead at Dots, is especially excited about Pokémon: Let’s Go, Evee. As she explains, “It’s simpler gameplay than the mainline Pokémon games, made to be more Pokémon Go-style, but as someone who bounced off the last couple of iterations of the series, I’m eager to try something new. Also,” she adds, “looking forward to dressing up my Eevee pal.”

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! + Poké Ball Plus Pack ($100)

If they want to take the Pokémon obsession one step further, Sheehan, Manganiello, and Cosmos all recommend gifting the Eevee bundle, which comes with a physical Pokéball that you can throw into space to catch your Pokémon.

Nintendo Switch – Neon Red and Neon Blue Joy-Con ($299)

Or, if they still don’t have a Nintendo Switch, Cosmos notes that you can go all-in with a “cute bundle that comes with a Pokémon-themed version of the game system complete with Pikachu and Eevee colors and embellishments” (though it’s currently sold out at most retailers). But unlike last year, the blue-and-red Nintendo Switch is readily available, and as Jamin Warren, founder and CEO of Kill Screen, told us last year, “It’s the perfect device for playing games on the go. Not only does it easily dock to your television, there are lots of great new games on it, such as Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. For those who are looking for something really versatile and social, it’s a perfect device.”

Oculus Rift + Touch Virtual Reality System ($399)

Though virtual reality headsets might not be as popular now as they were last year, Susanna Pollack, president of Games for Change, still maintains that an Oculus Rift is a great gift for an avid gamer. “It offers a premium consumer experience in virtual reality, with stunning visuals and controls that let you interact naturally,” she says. “Some of my most memorable gaming experiences have come through this technology, particularly with Ninja Theory’s Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, which won our Games For Change x Polygon People’s Choice Award and released a VR mode earlier this year. Not only is the game an action-packed struggle for survival as a Celtic warrior, it’s one of the most moving and well-researched depictions of mental illness in games ever.” And the Oculus Rift system is also cheaper than ever before, at just $399 for both the headset and the controllers.

SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless Gaming Headset ($330)

Akua Harris, a member of Black Girl Gamers, has an eye on a new gaming headset. “This one by SteelSeries for PS4 and PC comes with dual batteries and a 40-foot range (so you can go get a snack while waiting for the next round to start),” she says, adding that the sleek exterior makes it easy to customize with stickers.

Turtle Beach Elite Pro Tournament Gaming Headset ($180)

“Also giving heart-eyes to this headset by Turtle Beach,” she adds, “which works on all three consoles.”

Shadow of the Tomb Raider – Digital Standard Edition ($30)

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the perfect gift for gamers who like a good mix of narrative and adventure,” says Laura Gatti, technical artist at Dots, “with stunning environmental art and a great combination of story, dialogue, and action.”

DJI Mavic 2 Zoom ($1,177)

Justine Ezarik of iJustine is a big fan of the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom. “This has been my go-to drone since it was released this year,” she explains and calls it, “a great gift for a drone enthusiast or even a beginner.”

DJI Spark, Portable Mini Drone ($321)

If you’re looking for a less-expensive drone, however, last year, Ezarik recommended the DJI Spark, calling it her “favorite tiny, portable drone. It’s perfect for anyone who has never had a drone before. It can take off and land from the palm of your hand, and you can even fly it right from your iPhone without a controller.”

Apple Watch Series 4 ($499)

Ezarik also recommends the new Apple Watch Series 4. “With improved heart-rate and fitness tracking, get ready to kick your New Year’s fitness resolutions into gear,” she says. One feature of OS5 that she’s particularly stoked on is how “you can send friendly seven-day fitness competitions to your other friends with an Apple Watch.”

Goddess Mode #1 ($4)

“One of my favorite video game creators, Zoe Quinn, is writing a new comic book series called Goddess Mode,” says Katie Kaitchuck, executive director of GaymerX. “Set in a technocratic near future, the story is about a tech support worker who discovers a secret world within the artificial intelligence system she maintains. The art is so bold and vibrant and the story so fascinating, I can’t remember a comic series I’ve ever been this excited to read.” It doesn’t come out until December 12, but you should still be able to get it before Christmas.

          A $2.8 trillion asset manager is bracing for a US-China dispute that rages long after Trump's presidency — here are its best investing tips to navigate the chaos      Cache   Translate Page      

trump xi china trade war 4x3

  • The trade war is just a glimpse of the strained relationship between the US and China.
  • According to strategists at State Street Global Advisors, a $2.8 trillion asset manager, the very nature of the relationship is changing in a way that many investors still don't grasp.
  • The firm offered some recommendations on attractive pockets of the Chinese markets and explained why it thought active stock picking would be crucial going forward.

If the trade war is your biggest concern about US-China relations, State Street Global Advisors has news for you.

The $2.8 trillion asset manager says the dispute between the world's two largest economies is far from over. In fact, the very nature of their relationship is being reshaped in a way that will ripple even after Donald Trump is no longer president, said Laura Ostrander, an emerging-markets macro strategist.

Following last weekend's G20 summit, trade is still top of investors' minds. On Monday and Tuesday, the stock market swung from euphoria to dread over an agreement reached between the US and China to suspend new tariffs for 90 days. The S&P 500 fell by more than 3% on Tuesday after President Donald Trump tweeted his optimism over the agreement but warned he would act as "a Tariff Man" if the deal were to collapse.

Such an outcome may bring more pain to global markets, but it is not the only thing to be worried about with respect to China.

"Beyond the implementation of tit-for-tat trade tariffs, we are witnessing a shift in the US-China relationship from 'constructive engagement' (applied by the last three US presidents) to 'strategic containment,'" Ostrander said, referring to a US strategy that curtails China's ambitions.

"This reflects the US view that China has not played by the rules of open-market economies despite being in the World Trade Organization since 2001."

Ostrander said China had not done enough to convince the world that its state-owned enterprises did not have unfair advantages over privately run companies elsewhere. She also flagged concerns about national security, stemming from the dispute over the South China Sea.

"This suggests to us that this strategic shift might last beyond the Trump years, and while markets seem to have priced in the worst expectations around tariffs, investors are still absorbing the implications of this sea change in relations," Ostrander said.

Her view is shared by Joyce Chang, JPMorgan's global head of research, who recently told Business Insider that a reshaping of the US-China relationship was one of four paradigm shifts that would shape the next financial crisis.

Chang's list of flash points that could worsen relations with the US includes China's heavy investments in foreign countries and its use of artificial intelligence.

What this implies is that if investors are worried only about the trade war where China is concerned, they're missing the big picture.

On its own, the trade war has crushed Chinese and other emerging markets this year and created attractive opportunities for stock pickers, Ostrander said.

"While some may argue that these stocks are cheap for a reason, we think certain sectors look worth investigating within a framework of active management," she said.

State Street is underweight emerging-market technology, communications services, materials, industrials, and real estate. The firm is overweight consumer-discretionary stocks, however, betting that rising wealth in China will spur more spending.

State Street is also betting that earnings growth in emerging markets will overtake that of developed markets as the boost from fiscal stimulus in the US fades.

"For a typical portfolio, we would recommend adding a dedicated China all-share equity strategy within an EM allocation, which would enable flexible and direct top-down control of the portfolio's overall China exposure, an increasingly important equity-allocation parameter," she said.

For bond investors, Ostrander noted that Chinese bonds had a very low correlation with global bonds because of their smaller investor base. This provides the opportunity to diversify with an asset that tends not to sell off alongside its peers.

          6 Ways Marketing Automation Is Evolving for CMOs      Cache   Translate Page      

As a CMO, your job is to be ready for every marketing development. You’re never allowed to stand still, because the moment you do, something in your industry will change, and you’ll fall behind the competition.

Unfortunately, turnover for marketing jobs is increasing. One survey revealed that the average tenure of a marketing CMO is less than four years, and burnout is the number one cause. Automation is the solution to avoiding this burnout. It’s one of those constantly-evolving trends that’s a hot topic for marketers. 

Many CMOs are hesitant to engage in automation because it can have negative effects, like being banned from accounts or poor engagement. However, the landscape for automation is changing, and CMOs don’t have to be as scared of automation as they once were. In fact, you should be using it to your advantage as it continues to improve. 

You have enough on your plate without having to worry about spending enough time on social media to engage with users and create a strong brand. Here are some automation advancements that you’ll likely appreciate as a CMO. 

1. Real Engagement Is Possible 

In the past, automation bots were always a problem. Many CMOs refused to work with them because they caused awkward situations, lost your followers, and even got your account suspended or banned. 

However, automation has come a long way. There are still bots and automation services that can pose problems, but many more offer high-quality services that allow you to connect with real followers and not fake accounts. For example, SocialCaptain gets Instagram followers with strategic automation. The platform gets you real engagement as a result of authentic strategies guided by AI expert algorithms. 

There are great tools for every social media platform, not just Instagram. You can free up a lot of your time by using these tools while maintaining the desired engagement from your target audience. 

2. More Accessible Data 

In an interview with, Forbes, Matt Gay, CMO for Accenture, said that data is one of the marketers’ biggest challenges, particularly when it comes to the ability to use it. “It’s got to be in a form and format that is easily accessible and useable going forward, so you don’t have to have an IT person sorting through and making static reports,” he says. 

Thankfully, there is automation to handle a lot of the legwork in data analysis. The right software tools can help CMOs not only gather data but turn it into insights that can be used for advertising and marketing purposes. 

“CMOs would traditionally use data scientists and their analytics,” Gay says, pointing out that this is no longer a necessity with today’s machine algorithms that can do more than data scientists ever could. 

“Even with analytics and algorithms, these processes are manual, slow, and not leveraging the full capability of data scientists,” he continues. “As well, since machines can process massive amounts of data quickly, they will uncover insights faster and more efficiently than humans…allowing the data scientists to use their brains more and continue to seed the algorithms.” 

It’s an incredible tool that every chief marketer should be leveraging for the promotion of their business. 

3. Provides More Context 

Machine learning and artificial intelligence have come leaps and bounds in the last few years. They can now gather contextual clues much better than before, limiting inaccurate and sometimes embarrassing mistakes of the past. 

“Brands can use automation for contextual marketing, offering more personalized interactions,” says Linda Turley, an attorney at Turley Law Firm, who has experienced this first hand. “For example, data shows you when your target audience is usually online. Then, you can set your content calendar to post content at these times,” she explained. 

Additionally, data can show you trending topics, high-performing posts on social media, and highly effective advertisements in your industry. This information gathered with bots and other automated tools can give consumers the customized experience they most desire. 

4. More Valuable SEO 

SEO was once all about the use of keywords and link building to make your content searchable. However, it’s turning into a more personalized experience where quality content that’s highly valuable is king. 

Automation offers us what’s known as semantic SEO, “which aims to decipher what kind of question the person typing words into a search bar is actually trying to answer,” says Matthew Walker-Jones of Marketing Tech News. 

These semantics add value to SEO everywhere, offering a more tailored approach to understanding and catering to user behavior. 

“This marketing technique goes a long way to improve the traffic of a website by employing meaningful metadata through the removal of ambiguity in search queries and further creates clusters of content, grouped semantically by topic rather than keywords, developing meaningfully-connected networks that better respond to user searches,” he says. 

5. Augmented Reality Changes Social Media 

Connecting with consumers on social media is getting much more complicated and involved now that augmented reality is a part of the automation chapter. More and more users are demanding augmented reality, especially on social media. 

Many brands are responding, including major makeup producers like Estée Lauder and Loreal that allow you to try on colors with Facebook Messenger bots before they make a purchase through the app. Brick-and-mortar companies are also using AR to give consumers a tour of their businesses. 

AR is not out of your reach, no matter the size of your business. Automation tools not only provide insights on the highest-performing AR platforms, but they also make them more readily available. Simple smartphone apps and software tools are affordable and provide many options for incorporating these themes into existing marketing campaigns. 

6. Improved Integrations 

In the past, very few automation tools worked together. You utilized separate tools that ignored the others, giving you an incomplete picture of the collected data. Non-integrating automation tools still exist, but they’re becoming the minority. 

This is good news because seamless integration of every automation tool you use is vital to delivering a holistic experience for the customer. 

“The strategic focus of marketing automation needs to shift from the campaign or component approach to the customer journey in totality to deliver on the seamless customer experience promise,” advises an article from Martech Advisor that focuses on where automation will be by 2020. 

By the time we reach 2020, the current marketing landscape will be completely different, thanks to the prevalence of automation. These changes continue for the better, helping CMOs focus on what’s most important while staying on top of their engagement and marketing campaigns.

          Army AI Task Force Selects Carnegie Mellon as New Hub      Cache   Translate Page      

Image of an autonomous helicopter carrying a truck

Carnegie Mellon University has been selected as the hub of the United States Army's AI Task Force launched earlier this fall. The launch of the Task Force allows the Army to better connect with the broader artificial intelligence (AI) community as they focus their efforts in this constantly changing field. As the charter location for this national effort, the center based at Carnegie Mellon will engage universities and companies from across the nation and tap into the vibrant robotics and AI community in Pittsburgh.

"As the host site for this important effort, Carnegie Mellon will leverage its distinct strengths in artificial intelligence to assist the Army in building a vibrant AI innovation network with industry and university partners from across the nation," said Carnegie Mellon President Farnam Jahanian. "This partnership builds upon the university's long history of collaboration with the Department of Defense and industry partners. It is also a reflection of Pittsburgh's strengths as a hub for innovation and home to the world's top talent in emerging technologies."

"The Army is moving rapidly to develop and apply breakthroughs in AI to impact all aspects of Army operations," said Brig. Gen. Matthew Easley, director of Army Artificial Intelligence within Army Futures Command. "Carnegie Mellon is an excellent partner to help advance research and education initiatives and engage researchers throughout the nation to support and safeguard the men and women serving our nation."

The partnership will support projects responsible for the future force modernization that are initiated by the Army Futures Command. The Task Force will form agile teams of operational technical experts to rapidly develop prototype capabilities and create a talent management plan to enable the Army to hire, develop, and retain the necessary skills to support and foster AI development well into the future. Another benefit of this location is engagement with the local innovation ecosystem of defense companies, small businesses, and startups in the Pittsburgh region. The military's current priorities are for applications of artificial intelligence to equipment maintenance/logistics; situational awareness; and humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.

Carnegie Mellon's strengths in artificial intelligence span many disciplines across campus, with AI experts and researchers embedded in almost every school and college. The School of Computer Science, the first college in the world devoted solely to computing, is home to the world's first Ph.D. program in machine learning as well as the top ranked graduate program in AI. This fall, the school also launched the nation's first undergraduate degree program in artificial intelligence. CMU's expertise ranges from machine learning and language understanding to ethics and policy ramifications of emerging technologies. In 2017, a Carnegie Mellon-led team submitted the winning proposal for the Manufacturing USA Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing Institute, which also is directed by the Army and has its main site in Pittsburgh.

"Carnegie Mellon has long been a leader in fundamental research in AI, largely because of our interdisciplinary approach blending computer science, psychology, engineering, ethics and other disciplines," said Tom Mitchell, interim dean of the School of Computer Science. "This new effort will further strengthen our ability to partner with other universities, companies and government agencies to bring in even more diverse perspectives to move the field forward."

Carnegie Mellon and the Task Force will have a joint event to mark the opening of the location early in 2019.

          Omron: AI controller      Cache   Translate Page      
Sysmac AI Controller
Omron Automation Americas announces the Sysmac AI Controller an artificial intelligence solution that collects, analyzes, and utilizes data on edge devices within a controller to prolong equipment longevity.

The Sysmac AI Controller handles several key steps in the data-driven decision process for predictive maintenance, thereby freeing up industrial professionals from tedious calculations, analyses, and infrastructure upgrades.

This solution can help manufacturers reduce the risk of bad parts or equipment damage by detecting issues early on and prompting immediate action to resolve them. Customers will be able to take advantage of Omron’s advanced technology and its team of data scientists to facilitate predictive maintenance rather than figuring everything out on their own.

The AI functionality – also known as “machine learning” – is able to identify abnormal machine behavior without being explicitly programmed to do so. Since there could be many different factors and measurements that indicate an issue when observed together, automating the feature extraction process saves a significant amount of time and resources. Leveraging the machine learning results during production is key to ensuring end user cost savings.

The process of collecting raw data from machines is completely automated by the new AI controller which operates on the “Edge” within the machine, ensuring higher data fidelity and consistency. In addition, the controller automatically creates data models from correlation analysis and monitor machine status based on that model. Without this automation, machine designers and operators would otherwise need to develop their own analytics and optimization capabilities in order to avoid cloud solution costs.

Rather than being a cloud solution, Omron’s unique approach to artificial intelligence-based control involves hardware, offline software and in-person service. No internet connectivity or IT infrastructure/service is required. The hardware is based on the Sysmac NY5 IPC and the NX7 CPU and includes Omron’s AI Application Components, a library of AI predictive maintenance function blocks. Several additional AI specific utilities are also included.

Because the data collection and analysis is performed within the same hardware as the controls program, the solution provides the utmost data processing speed, accuracy and security. For the service component, Omron experts will assist in startup and provide periodic support.

Chartis uses two distinct categories to evaluate vendors; "completeness of offering", which evaluates the breadth and depth of functionality a vendor possesses, along with infrastructure, analytics and reporting capability; and "market potential", which evaluates a range of categories such as market penetration, brand reputation, innovation, and implementation and support.

The Chartis report Vendor Analysis: FICO (Financial Crime Risk Management Systems: Enterprise Fraud; Market Update 2018) provides further analysis of FICO’s rating. Specifically:

Completeness of Offering

FICO’s capabilities in a broad range of anti-fraud functions resulted in consistently good scores across the categories. Cognitive Analytics, central to the FICO Falcon Platform, was identified as a notable strength, particularly for payment fraud (deposits, real-time payments, digital, cards), and supported by the comprehensive Falcon capabilities that demonstrate the broad scope of the offering. The strength of FICO’s artificial intelligence and machine learning was specifically called out, including the flexibility of connections to third-party analytics sources and the future potential of converged fraud and compliance capabilities.

Market Potential

FICO had consistently high scores across the assessment criteria, in particular market penetration, growth strategy and financials. Geographic growth was particularly notable, including some of our recent client wins in Latin America, Europe and Asia-Pacific; FICO serves more than 9,000 financial institutions worldwide.

The Enterprise Fraud Market

In its report, Chartis noted the growth within the market, including the traditional incumbents and new entrants, many of which are more focused on point solutions or best-of-breed in certain areas. Very few providers were shown to offer comprehensive enterprise fraud solutions. By virtue of its market potential and functional capability, FICO acquired category leader status, reflecting a developing focus on new and emerging fraud detection techniques and more sophisticated analytics.

          NASA: Intelligent Aliens Are On Earth, Hiding In Plain Sight      Cache   Translate Page      
NASA says intelligence aliens may have already visited Earth
Intelligent aliens may have already visited our planet and are currently hiding in plain sight, according to NASA scientist Silvano P. Colombano.

“I simply want to point out the fact that the intelligence we might find and that might choose to find us (if it hasn’t already) might not be at all be produced by carbon-based organisms like us,” Colombano, a computer scientist at NASA Ames Research Center, wrote in a new research paper published December 4.
Rt.com reports: The scientist theorizes that our whole approach to searching for extraterrestrial intelligent life may actually be holding us back from discovering it, adding that we must “revisit even our most cherished assumptions.”
Instead of limiting ourselves to current presuppositions based on what we think we know about the universe, Colombano instead proposes a more free-form, blue sky thinking approach as, ‘life’ may not always conform to our current model, it may already have visited us in forms beyond our comprehension, attempting to communicate with us using technology beyond the realm of our current scientific understanding.
Colombano encourages the scientific community to broaden its horizons when looking for aliens, postulating that the current human lifespan may no longer be a problem in the near future as technological advancements continue to dramatically improve both the quality and length of our lives, affording us a different perception of interstellar travel in the process.
He accepts that the speed of light and interstellar travel may prove to be “an unbreakable barrier, over spans of thousands of years,” but that we shouldn’t operate under an automatically constrained set of possibilities.
He argues that technology as we know it only began development approximately 10,000 years ago, with many of the fundamental scientific methodologies upon which our current understanding of the universe is based coming to light in the past 500 years or so.
“We can surmise that we might have a real problem in predicting technological evolution even for the next thousand years, let alone 6 Million times that amount!” he explains. With this in mind, he advocates for a more “speculative approach” to physics.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Colombano holds a PhD in Biophysics, and is a specialist in Artificial Intelligence, Bio-Inspired computation and Robotics. He is apparently known for “brainstorming ideas and writing both technical and philosophical material” especially within the realm of “Self-sustaining Robotic Systems.”
The expert concludes the paper by calling on technologists to explore “Evolvable Robotic Systems” while also beseeching the scientific community to look deeper into existing reports of UFOs and extraterrestrial phenomena including, but not limited to, a close examination of “130,000 pages of declassified US Air Force documents, National UFO Reporting Center Database and several other international databases.”

Can you imagine a scenario where you go to college, study for a degree, and then, a few years after you graduate, discover that the industry you trained for no longer needs you, or anyone else? It’s depressing to think about, but that is going to be the reality for many people. The profession they thought they would do for the duration of their career will become obsolete. Due to robots and artificial intelligence, somewhere in the region of 40% of jobs may be lost in the coming decade and beyond. So if you’re about to begin studying or you’re thinking about switching your career, you’ll be well served by opting for a job that you know will still exist for the foreseeable future. Fortunately, we have a good idea of the jobs where demand is expected to grow. We take a look at some of these options below.

          The center is not holding -- and Trump is our proof       Cache   Translate Page      
If a devastating new report from The New York Times is to be believed, the falconer’s falcon is but one of the innumerable creatures wiped off the planet just in the past 50 years.

As the world’s pre-eminent heads of state gather in Buenos Aires, Argentina, this weekend for the annual G-20 summit, the postwar order has never looked more fragile. War threatens to break out at any moment between Russia and Ukraine, Britain is staring into the abyss of a failed Brexit negotiation and the U.S. faces a rising tide of ethno-nationalism, reinforced in no small part by Donald Trump’s presidency. Compounding this larger crisis, new research indicates we have just 12 years to radically reduce carbon emissions or risk climate catastrophe.

The center is not holding, and if a devastating new report from The New York Times is to be believed, the falconer’s falcon is but one of the innumerable creatures wiped off the planet just in the past 50 years. As Jonathan Aronson argues in his new book, “Digital DNA: Disruption and the Challenges for Global Governance,” we are living through a period of profound social and economic upheaval—one that threatens the very foundations of our political system.

“Last week, Sears declared bankruptcy,” Aronson tells Robert Scheer in the latest installment of “Scheer Intelligence.” “Sears, in many ways, was the Amazon of another age. They were the ones who distributed everything; they changed everything. So what has happened is the world has changed; the economies have changed; the companies have changed; but as usual, the rules have lagged behind.”

A professor at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, Aronson examines what he refers to as a “hollowing out” of the working class and our elected officials. While the former has seen its jobs shipped overseas, the latter has grown increasingly beholden to multinationals, many of which now underwrite their campaigns. This, in turn, Aronson says, “pushes people left, it pushes people right. And at the same time you have an economic dearth in the middle. … The people who were in the middle in politics are also gone.”

That the United States and the West at large have arrived at an inflection point seems undeniable. Rather than give in to pessimism, however, Aronson argues we must view this historical moment as one of tremendous possibility.

“If we don’t get our act together and improve things for everybody—including your workers, your middle class, your poor, and not just the 1 percent—we could really descend into chaos,” he says. “But there is an opportunity, if we can get things right, which can only be done through bringing diverse groups with different interests together, and sort of finding ways to build a coalition among them, not against them—that there is still some hope.”

Listen to Aronson’s interview with Scheer or read a transcript of their conversation below:

Robert Scheer:Hi, this is Robert Scheer with another edition of “Scheer Intelligence,” where the intelligence comes from my guests. In this case, it’s Jonathan Aronson, who has written a book with Peter Cowhey called “Digital DNA: Disruption and the Challenges for Global Governance.” The interesting idea of this book is–it’s a contradictory idea; on the one hand, clearly, digital communication, the digital age, the age of the internet, has changed everything. On the other hand, we have a set of problems that have been with us forever–problems of accountability, truth-telling, democracy, representation, bias. Our politics seem to be as much of an irrational mishmash as ever. And the public seems to be, well, more divided and more confused than ever. So what is the great wonder of the digital age?

Jonathan Aronson:It’s two things. You’re right; it’s contradictory. On the one hand, what has changed a great deal is the internet changes everything. Now, that’s both true and meaningless, because what it means is that you have to break it down and look piece-by-piece at what’s going on. In the case of this book, what we’re saying is communication, information technology, has forced the change of supply [chains] and business models of every kind of business. From agriculture to mining, from manufacturing to high-tech. All of those are changing, and all of those companies are scrambling to figure out how to continue to make money. This week, Sears declared bankruptcy. Sears, in many ways, was the Amazon of another age. They were the ones who distributed everything; they changed everything. So what has happened is the world has changed; the economies have changed; the companies have changed; but as usual, the rules have lagged behind.

RS:So let me ask you a question about this, because you’re a professor here at the University of Southern California Annenberg School in communications, but you also have a joint appointment in international relations. And when I look at this whole international situation, you know, at first we thought, as you say, the internet changes everything–we thought we’d get smarter, we’d have more information, our lives would be more meaningful. But there was a lurking fear that our work models may be broken, robotics may change everything. It seems to me the unexpected consequence of the internet is that capitalism, in a fundamental way, may be at risk. And an old concern of social well-being, of social welfare, is asserting itself: if people are going to lose their jobs, or the jobs are going to go abroad, or if some, a number of people are going to become billionaires and the others are going to have stagnant wages. You have a great fear that life as we know it no longer exists. And here we’re teaching at a university, where people are going to graduate; they have to go out and work, and they’re probably as set up for the internet world as any group of students; our school is very good at that. But on the other hand, the good-paying jobs may not be there. Their parents already know that; they’ve gone through a housing crisis, a recession. So let me ask you, in terms of your book–and I read it very carefully–I actually found it quite depressing. Not because of your writing or anything, but because of its vision of the world: that the brave new world of the internet might not sustain meaningful, productive, and stable life.

JA:We are in a period of dynamic change. I’m more optimistic about this. On the one hand, I see that the top-end students, people who are coming from here, people who know something about coding, people who are entrepreneurial, are probably going to do just fine. Even in an age of robots, I haven’t seen a student here in forty years who said, “I want to be on a manufacturing line.” We don’t produce students who will be displaced by robots. They may be involved with it. In addition, you have AI, artificial intelligence; you have 3-D printing, sometimes called advanced manufacturing. All of those are changing things, and it’s dynamically shifting very quickly. The other end of the scale, people who don’t have very much education at all–there are still going to be jobs there. The big problem is in the middle: what do we do with people who were making good money in steel factories, at automobile manufacturers, and those jobs are rapidly going away? Even in a place like a coal mine–President Trump is fond of saying “I’m going to bring back the coal mine.” Well, if that happens to be true, the miners are much more likely to be whizzing around–non-humans, robots of some sort that don’t get black lung disease, don’t unionize, and don’t demand pay. You’re never going to get the return of miners, and nobody much wants it.

RS:Well, let me tell you who wants it. When you’re a miner and you belong to the United Mine Workers union, or you’re an auto worker and you belong to the United Auto Workers, we had a mechanism for social justice in this society. We had a way of people getting decent wages, decent health care, decent opportunities, a prospect of sending their kids to the state university or somewhere else, where they would get ahead in life, and so forth. So we had the, for once, a modern economic component of equality, of opportunity, of a growing middle class. However, the internet has destroyed a model of sharing wealth. You see it with Amazon that doesn’t have unionized workers. You see it with the end of the journalism industry. We’re a school of communication and journalism; we now have more PR students than we have journalism students. So the business model of the internet begs for a new kind of socialism–or, on the right-wing side, a new kind of fascism.

JA:It’s a real serious problem. The book does not address employment directly, but what it acknowledges and what is embedded in it is that there is an extreme hollowing out in the middle. That the middle class are the ones who have not made the gains. It’s not just for themselves, because the coal miners may not have wanted to raise kids who were coal miners; they wanted to raise kids who could do well, and they’re losing that opportunity. So that’s where they are pushing it. At the same time, we have had the polarization and hollowing out of our elected officials. So it pushes people left, it pushes people right, and at the same time you have an economic dearth in the middle. You have–the people who were in the middle in politics are also gone.

RS:Well, but let’s take this disappearing middle class, or hollowing out of the middle class. Because the middle class was the great hope of democracy, economic democracy and stability. De Tocqueville, as a foreign observer, made a very important point: the saving grace of the American experiment was this ever-expanding middle class–of opportunity, of increasing skills, education, and so forth. If that has been hollowed out, what comes in its place? Maybe what comes in its place–and this is why I bring up Sanders and Trump–is either a regimented society, which rewards people who go along and march in lock-step, which is the neofascist model, and you keep your nose clean and OK, we’ll take care of you. Or a society which empowers people, aside from whether they have wealth or not, where you have meaningful elections without–with real campaign finance. Where you have guaranteed health care, so your job is not the ticket to your actual survival, right? Where you have guaranteed minimum wage, so people can live off their work. And it really seems to me a battle between a vision of fascism and a vision of social democracy.

JA:Or at least of authoritarianism. Doesn’t have to be a completely fascist state.

RS:Well, let me explain, because you’re a professor of international relations, I just want to defend the fascist label. Because the key to fascism really is an alliance between corporations, and a chauvinistic, jingoistic political message. And what I fear, and the reason I use the fascist element, it seems to me that one way you get stability is through this law-and-order, jingoistic, chauvinistic model. The other is by empowering–through unions, or through public education, or social services, or guaranteed health care–you empower, as maybe the Swedish model, the ordinary person to have a decent life, with or without wealth.

JA:Democratic socialism is the term that is sometimes being used. The problem is quite simple, which is those on that side, at this stage, are still losing, and losing consistently. So you take Sweden, for example; a right-wing party came in third, and has increasing power in Sweden in the election that happened last month. What you’re seeing over and over again is that those forces may win small pieces–individual elections–but they’re not winning the big elections. And the people who are afraid of immigrants, on the one hand, losing their own prosperity, are in the ascendant right now. I asked my students today what was the difference between strategy and tactics, and nobody knew. That catches us into the political side of this, because we have a president who doesn’t understand strategy, but who is a master tactician. He has a tactic, which he applies over and over and over again. And it works often enough that it attracts a stable base of supporters. But there’s no perception of where he wants to go with that.

RS:Tell us about the tactic.

JA:The tactic is pretty simple. And pretty well understood. One, President Trump believes that anything that he didn’t do, was wrong. So NAFTA was terrible, but the NAFTA revision, which was really an update, and quite incremental, was wonderful. Anything Obama did was terrible, by definition. Often anything a fellow republican did. So if it wasn’t his idea, it was a terrible thing. That’s part one. Part two, we all know he’s transactional. So that he is dealing in the moment, he is trying to think in terms of a zero-sum game; he plays what game theorists would call “chicken.” So he goes full-throttle ahead and hopes very much that the other side, being more rational than he, turns aside. Fourth, he is shameless. So it has been documented over and over and over again that he simply doesn’t tell the truth. He may not understand the difference between truth and lies, and he doesn’t care. And then fifth, he never apologizes.

RS:OK. So I got that, and I think that’s a pretty accurate description. But let me throw in another element, because this is true of any demagogue, effective demagogue. There has to be something they’re feeding on. There has to be angst, fear, a desperation–

JA:Anger.

RS:–anger, in the society. And we make a mistake if we minimize the significance of that. And I want to just throw in–and this does go to your book. And what we are seeing is a resurgence of a kind of nationalism, a jingoism. And Trump personifies that, but we’re seeing that in other countries. It seems to me we underestimate the Trump strategy and appeal if we don’t recognize that there is a big problem. And the big problem is that globalization doesn’t deliver back to the citizens of the nation-state. It actually begs the question, why do you need a nation-state? OK? When I look out at our students, the first thing I see are these open computers–every one of which, by the way, has been made in communist China. You know, now, if [Laughs] 20 years ago, when I first arrived here, or 25 years ago, if somebody had told me that communist China would represent the most successful capitalist model in this new economy, I would have thought they were crazy. But the fact of the matter is, an authoritarian state–China, still run by a communist party–has developed a model of catering to consumerism, of using this new technology, and so forth. OK. The big question for China or the United States really is, do you distribute the wealth? Really, your book begs the question, in the internet age, what is the significance of the nation-state?

JA:Let me both agree and disagree with you. Agreeing that business models are now global, and not going to be turned around. If you look at why the NAFTA is at some level trying to chase something that’s already happened, if you look at an auto engine right now, we are worrying about whether it’s 70 percent American, what part of it, what do we do with Mexico, what do we do with Canada. And in fact, an auto engine, the average number of times it moves across one border or another in North America is eight. From the time they begin it to the time it is delivered to wherever it is. It is impossible to figure out, is this an American, Canadian, Mexican, or something else in terms of that. So the model is global, and that runs in stark contradiction to the nation-state. In that, you’re absolutely right. The book is trying to do something else. First, we are believers in patience. That the reason we think there’s going to be a need for some global agreements, is that the system will be much less efficient, it will be much less robust and productive, if you don’t get some principles and norms agreed among nations. Do we expect this in the next two years? No, we do not.

RS:Right. And the book is “Digital DNA: Disruption and Challenges for Global Governance.” I am talking to Jonathan Aronson, a professor at the University of Southern California in international relations and in communication. [omission for station break] And I want to pick up on the point you were just making about where cars are produced, and NAFTA. And I think you kind of minimized–dare I say it, I hope I don’t get fired over this–Trump’s achievement with NAFTA 2.0.

JA:Well, let me make a couple of quick notes. OK, first, I want to note for the audience that the book is written with Peter Cowhey, who is a professor at the University of California, San Diego. Two, the data on NAFTA is very mixed. What we know is that the extremes are wrong. It did not help people in any country as much as those who proclaimed that it would had promised. Two, it did not hurt people inordinately. The best data that has come out seems to suggest that what you got was–it’s marginally better overall; it caused some real job growth, but the jobs that were lost tended to be much more union jobs. So the unions were hurt, but not the overall employment, in terms of this.

RS:By the way, NAFTA 2.0, I don’t want to give Trump too much credit, there was a serious cave-in on pharmaceuticals, which undermines Canada’s example of being able to control the prices of pharmaceuticals. This was a surprisingly good improvement over NAFTA, coming as it did from Trump. The bottom line is that no one of significance speaks for ordinary people. That’s why they turn to outliers–a good one like Bernie Sanders, a bad one like Trump. The reality is–and I was at the Democratic [National] Convention, and this TPP for instance, the trade agreement, and NAFTA, were attacked by the union people there, and many of the delegates felt the party had betrayed them on this issue, OK. So the significance–and this is why I’m bringing it up in context to this globalization–is that the average person in this country, including many democrats, feels they’ve been betrayed by this shift in the economy. And I want to spend a little time on this view of the new tech world. Because, yes, there are people in Silicon Valley who make good wages. But the fact is that most of the jobs connected with those computers and everything else in the high-tech world are either done abroad, you know, where profits for Apple and others are basically earned, and from low-wage workers; or they’re created here. I mean, a company like Amazon is a national scandal. Think about it! I mean, here’s a company where people are running around warehouses, and they are low paid, have not had basic rights to organize, unions have been busted. So all of the progress–but the fact is, in all of these trade agreements, no one cared about the tenure for ordinary workers. They got screwed. OK? I know I’m bringing some anger to the thing–

JA:That’s good!

RS:–but I don’t want to lose the issue. And the reason I think we can’t lose it is we can’t understand this election. We can’t understand this dynamic in the world. And yes, you get a rise of the right-wing when you don’t have a rise of the progressive left. But the fact of the matter is, the status quo cannot hold if trade and financial decisions and deregulation are all made for the one percent. That’s the bottom line.

JA:I agree with that. My problem is, I don’t have a good answer of how to get from here to there, to where you’re talking about. And I don’t know anybody who really does. Should the taxes on the one percent be higher? Absolutely. Where should you go with this? How do you manage to do that? I don’t have a good answer. I don’t know very many people who even have the beginning of an answer. So what I try to do, in my modest but not too modest way, along with Professor Cowhey, is plot a path to help improve the overall situation, and hope to hell that people smarter than I am can figure out how to solve, or how to begin to solve, the kinds of problems you’re describing. How do you set the, reset the equilibrium so that you can begin to focus on issues like this? The one that’s gotten a lot more attention is climate; how do you reset this when we have people who deny science running the country? There is a climate problem right now. It should be obvious to pretty much everybody; it isn’t. There is an employment problem. How do you deal with it? It should be obvious that we have the problem, but then where do you go? I’m reasonably certain, in terms of the areas that I deal with; I’m not a labor economist.

RS:I think we can find common ground. And that’s why I wanted to talk to you about your book. I think the book is very powerful, very interesting, in that you grasp the significance of what the title of the book is, “Digital DNA: Disruption and Challenges for Global Governance.” It’s worth reading–let me just be on the record here–it’s worth reading this book to get the scope of the change. I agree that there’s disruption and challenges for global governance. What I’m trying to say is, your book is a launching pad–I’m trying to take you to the next stage. And so I would like to move this discussion to this area of what do we do. And I’m going to give you some answers that I think lie in our history, OK. And this is why I brought up these old-fashioned labels of social democracy–and I’m not the first one; we finally do have people in our political process now who call themselves social democrats and so forth. And that’s a very good rubric for people who say, government has to care about the least among us and about working people and ordinary people, and the wealth has to be shared, to a degree that we have stakeholders and people can live a good life–OK. There’s a program connected with that–meaningful public education that is free, and Bernie Sanders was not being a wild-eyed guy when he said you could go through college, and should. When I went to City College in New York, you know, it was a free university. So we had a model of meaningful, free education: the state universities, the land-grant colleges, here in California the community colleges; we dropped that. We went for elite education, we went for a meritocracy, and you know, what does industry want, and we’ll be a service, we’ll feed industry what it wants. OK. So, ah, raising the minimum wage to something significant goes a long way to giving people a sense of safety–OK, do what you want with the economy, do trade, make all the deals, but make sure that people working here can make a living wage so they can support their family, and they will not be responsible for their children’s education, and they will not be responsible for their health care. That in fact, this is a human right, OK? So we extend human rights, and we extend it in these trade agreements, and here’s my beef with your book. These trade agreements did not include environmental protections in any significant way; they certainly did not include labor protections; but most important, they didn’t contain guarantees of democratic decision-making. The problem with NAFTA, these courts–if you have a legal issue, you go into basically a private court controlled by the corporations, who then bring in their own lawyers, and the judges are their lawyers from their thing. And there was no–they didn’t even let people, in the latest trade agreements, they didn’t even let people in Congress share it with the media. They had to go into secret rooms to read these things. So what you really have lost is the most fundamental human right, which is the democratic right of individuals to know what’s going on and what’s supposedly being done in their name. Unfortunately, if you don’t have that, you end up with this fascistic model of–that it seems to me Donald Trump is pushing to–where you disenfranchise ordinary people, by appealing to jingoism, by scapegoating immigrants and others, by buying them off with trinkets like the Volkswagen. And you give them jobs working in a militarized economy, and that’s the alternative model. That’s the dilemma that this new DNA of technology has presented us with.

JA:Let me answer in three parts. First, what I absolutely agree with is that what we created was a launching platform. But it is a multi-use launching platform. By describing the way the world economy exists today, it gives and opportunity for people to–and nations, and corporations, and civil society–to negotiate on a number of issues, from climate to environment to trade agreements. Second, something that hasn’t been mentioned here, but it’s gotten really messy and more complicated. To throw in three specific issues that have complicated matters, but make this really hard: one, we have the cloud; your data may be floating around anywhere. It’s not national anymore; you have no idea where it is. Two, and better known, we have all of the cybersecurity issues that have been raised. Trade people never dealt with those; they haven’t a clue how to deal with those, though they are trying hard to deal with it. And third, privacy issues are increasingly on the front page, are extremely important, from Facebook to Amazon. But in terms of what should be private–what do you think of “the right to be forgotten,” a European phrase? So those three things aren’t there. And finally, we haven’t talked about the way we suggest organizing the movement forward. And we are very strongly in favor of what are called multi-stakeholder organizations. We do not think that in this complicated, messy world, it is any longer possible for you to have states, to state, a big international institution, maybe a bank or two, do the negotiations. If civil society, if unions, if interested groups are not at the table, you’re not going to create the kinds of agreements that are going to hold going forward. So that in your sense of seeking a more democratic and transparent perspective, we’re all in.

RS:We’re in a total agreement on this. I think the–what we’re seeing with Trump is the center is not holding. The agreements don’t hold, whether it’s Iran or whether it’s NAFTA, or whatever. You can make agreements; if the public feels disenfranchised and left out and not attended to, these things are not going to hold. You’re going to have disruption, you’re going to have chaos; Donald Trump is a chaotic president. So we’re in agreement on that. Now, I want to end by taking the three points that you raised: the cloud–that it’s not national, it’s multinational–cybersecurity, and privacy. They’re all three interrelated, and the significance of the cloud not being national is, they’re basically talking about the collection of data worldwide, the commingling of data, the mining of data. And the reality is that you can think you’re giving your data over to a democratic society in England or the United States, but that data is circulating in Egypt, it’s circulating in Brazil, anywhere else–China, Russia, and so forth. And one of the ironies here is that Jeff Bezos, who now owns, personally owns the Washington Post–their main money that Amazon has made is not by selling you books or selling you articles of clothing–

JA:TWS, the cloud.

RS:Yes. The cloud. Amazon is, this money is coming–and they are a defense contractor. They are building the cloud for our intelligence agencies, right? They’re getting all the data that NSA has, CIA; they get to mine it, they get to work with it. So they are defense contractors. The contradiction for the people doing the cloud are the same as that go into cybersecurity, and the same that go into privacy. And this is the fundamental point I wanted to bring up with you: is nationalism dead? Because–and this is where Google and Apple and Facebook are all in trouble–you can cater to the CIA or the NSA or your own government’s congress, or what have you. But how are you going to enter the Chinese market, the Indian market? How are you going to be in Europe, the European Union and so forth? And it goes to the privacy question; you’re absolutely right, the European Union has pushed back on this invasion of privacy. But the dirty secret of the internet is that without invading privacy, you don’t have a profit model. For most of these companies. Their money-making model is by destroying your privacy. It is also opening up to cybersecurity questions, and it also has to do with the cloud; these three are joined. And they’re basically, the dirty secret of the new internet world is your private data, your most sacred, who you are, the definition of who you are, the thing that can be used to imprison you, to con you, to betray you–that is the stuff that is the source of profit, exploiting that. So I’m going to give you the last word on this: is this the brave new world that you’ve described in your book?

JA:I think very much that we are at an inflection point. If we don’t get our act together and improve things for everybody–including your workers, your middle class, your poor, and not just the one percent–we could really descend into chaos. But there is an opportunity, if we can get things right, which can only be done through bringing diverse groups with different interests together, and sort of finding ways to build a coalition among them, not against them–that there is still some hope. So I have spent a career trying to be an optimist. Sometimes it’s hard, but I prefer that way than to, trying to duck things that are falling from the sky.

RS:The book is “Digital DNA: Disruption and Challenges for Global Governance,” Oxford University Press. Came out last year. And I’ve been talking to Jonathan Aronson, who is a professor at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, as well as a professor in this school of international studies, here at USC. And we are grateful that they made this studio available. Our engineers at KCRW are Kat Yore and Mario Diaz. Our producers are Joshua Scheer and Isabel Carreon. And we’ll see you next week with another edition of Scheer Intelligence.

 


          Here's what the Luddites were right about      Cache   Translate Page      
If we continue on our current path environmental Armageddon isn’t just possible but likely, where neoliberal economic policy threatens to render all of us unnecessary, and where unfettered technology isn’t used as a liberatory tool but rather as a system of surveillance and propaganda.

Sometime in 1779, in the midst of that era of trans-Atlantic revolutions that marked the Age of Reason, an apocryphal weaver named Ned Ludd supposedly took a hammer to two stocking frames in a textile factory near Leicester, smashing to bits that simple machinery which threatened his livelihood with the promise of expedient and profitable mechanization. Ludd wasn’t real, yet the popularity of the character demonstrated something about the inequities that defined the lives of English workers, and the threat that technology posed to them. 

Though Ludd wasn’t an actual person, the movement that took its name from him very much was. Some three decades after his imagined act of iconoclastic fury, the Luddites threatened the interests of capital in both English town and country, destroying the machines of the Industrial Revolution which were designed to replace them. During the Luddite Crisis of 1811-1816, a popular song was heard in the countryside: “Chant no more your old rhymes about bold Robin Hood, /His feat I but little admire. /I will sing the achievements of General Ludd, /Now the Hero of Nottinghamshire.”

That the term “Luddite” is so completely preserved as a designation of opprobrium speaks to the ultimate victory of their opponents. For contemporary readers, a Luddite is a technophobe who spurns innovation, an archaic throwback who can’t admit to industrial progress, an eccentric who avoids the thrill of the digital in favor of the comforts of the analog. Such connotations do a disservice to a radical movement with a coherent economic perspective, and that more importantly critiqued the ways in which nascent capitalism threatened the question of human meaning. Such connotations for the term are convenient for a power structure that takes the principles of the Industrial Revolution to their nihilistic conclusions.

By contrast, Marxist historian E.P. Thompson in his classic 1963 The Making of the English Working Class wrote that he in part wished to “rescue the poor stockinger, the Luddite cropper, the ‘obsolete’ handloom weaver, the ‘utopian’ artisan… from the enormous condescension of posterity.” If such a task was desirable when Thompson published his study, than it’s existentially critical in our current era. Today, the Luddite critique of technology in service of capital is necessary to tackle the political crisis of meaning that has been engendered by neo-liberalism. 

We currently face a crisis of meaning brought on by technology that would make poor Ned Ludd’s threatening stocking frames seem rustically charming by comparison. We’ve all become intimately aware of how at the individual level a type of epistemological anarchism has taken hold as social media has called basic facts into question for massive swaths of the population, and on the global level it’s become clear how industrialization threatens us with complete ecological collapse in the form of climate change. What’s not remarked on enough is the threat posed to workers by mechanization, the exact same threat that the weavers of the Luddite Rebellion fought against.

Andrew Yang, a tech entrepreneur and a dark horse presidential candidate for the 2020 Democratic primary, has made the centerpiece of his campaign a condemnation of the threat that modern technology poses to the American worker. Kevin Roose in an article for the New York Times explains that Yang’s long-shot candidacy is being waged more to highlight an issue that has been almost entirely overlooked, writing that the candidate believes “automation and advanced artificial intelligence will soon make millions of jobs obsolete – yours, mine, those of our accountants and radiologists and grocery store cashiers.” Yang says that “All you need is self-driving cars to destabilize society…. [W]e’re going to have a million truck drivers out of work who are 94 percent male, with an average level of education of high school or one year of college.” He opines that just that one development “will be enough to create riots in the street. And we’re about to do the same thing to retail workers, call center workers, fast-food workers, insurance companies, accounting firms.” 

Yang’s longshot candidacy arguably exists more to promote his theories than it does as a legitimate campaign for the White House, and yet the theories he’s promoting deserve attention. The former tech executive’s potential solution includes a universal basic income, a so-called “Freedom Dividend,” which would ensure all Americans a regular source of money from the government. An unconventional solution to many no doubt, and yet Yang is convincing that such measures should be considered as technology increasingly makes entire categories of workers superfluous.

While the Freedom Dividend is a start in thinking about a crisis which is only a decade away, it doesn’t address an even deeper issue. Universal basic income may meet collective material needs that an increasingly efficient but anti-worker capitalism won’t, yet the crisis of meaning will only be exacerbated in a nation where we’re all taught that self-worth is defined through work; work that for many of us will no longer be needed. When meaning dissipates, the ideologies that will be victorious will be those that offer some new value to our lives, and unless the left offers a cognoscente solution to what’s an existential crisis, they will be crushed by dark impulses that offer ersatz meaning at the ballot box and increasingly in the street.

Partisans on the right would rather convince workers that the threat is a caravan of destitute women and children slowly walking toward America’s southern border to seek asylum as refugees, but immigrants haven’t been taking jobs – robots have. That the wealthy donors to the current administration have a vested interest in demonizing immigrants and minorities to obscure the manner in which they are exploiting the working class of all races is easy enough to understand. Much of our current politics of fear and hate is bolstered by an increasing absence of meaning. I speak not of church; this is not a bromide about the decline of traditional religion, for meaning can just as easily be found outside of a pew as in it (and increasingly the former is the case).

Rather it’s to observe that as humans are fundamentally meaning-making creatures, it’s imperative that the left have a coherent vision that speaks to value beyond economic necessity. Yang’s proposal is serious, but to truly tackle the question of how individuals draw meaning from society we’ll need to consider radical possibilities that transcend the assumption that capitalism is the normal and eternal state of things, and that traditional work is the only means of self-definition.

The political crisis of meaning constitutes the very medium in which we exist, paradoxically making it difficult to always perceive. Our alienation is so complete that we’ve been inured against realizing just how much a sense of meaninglessness permeates American lives. We see it in the fever-swamp hell-scape that is the relativist rage of social media, where empathy is increasingly eliminated in favor of a frequently nonsensical and irrational snarl. We see it in the opioid epidemic (still disturbingly overlooked by many media outlets), where rates of addiction have increased 300 percent since 1999, calling to mind Carl Jung’s observation that addiction is a material solution to a spiritual problem. And we especially see it in the horrifying growth of neo-fascism, especially as represented by the man who occupies the White House. Garret Keizer, in a recent and brilliant article in the New Republic, provides a crucial diagnosis of that which Donald Trump is merely a symptom, explaining that “American nihilism is an oozing sore, but like an oozing sore it is evidence both of a malady and of a body’s desperate attempt to heal itself.” 

Currently the right offers a “solution” of meaning to the very problems that they created; theirs is a faux-meaning that glitters like fool’s gold, and their empty moralism is pure nihilism. What the popularity of a Trump evidences is in part a thirst for meaning, except it’s a dark meaning that defines itself through the domination of others. The sick genius of “Make America Great Again” was that it bolstered those who felt they lacked meaning in a way that “America is Already Great” spectacularly and tone-deafly couldn’t.

We see right-wing ersatz meaning everywhere, from the empty pronouncements of self-help guru Jordan Peterson, whose very popularity speaks to the need to find meaning in a world that is offering little of it, but who instead serves his audience a nonsensical mishmash of rhetoric about lobster serotonin and transphobia, to the explicitly fascistic politics of “Identitarians” who trumpet white supremacy as an ethos through which the disaffected can define themselves. Something pathetic in that ideology, as it offers the empty calories of fake meaning defined entirely through the individual members valorizing themselves because they superficially look like somebody whom they think did something important long ago. A meaning based in blood lines and phenotype is no meaning at all, it’s worshiping an imagined family tree as a god. The “meaning” offered by such groups is cheap; it’s nothing more than the meaning of a snarl, punch, slap, and kick. Such formalized bigotry is idiotic, but those myths also organize people, and we must be wary of them.

I speak not as Senator Bernie Sanders, who recently evidenced far too much sympathy for those voters who because of their own personal racism couldn’t bring themselves to vote for black candidates. A politics of meaning need not necessarily exist to attract back those who are disaffected and drawn to pernicious ideologies. If a coherent left politics of meaning does ultimately attract such people, then good. But what I speak of is a need of providing for ourselves a coherent vision that speaks to the soul as well as to the body, which addresses Rose Schneiderman’s socialist anthem that sings of how we must have bread, but roses too.

In One-Dimensional Man the philosopher Herbert Marcuse wrote that the “judgment that human life is worth living, or rather can and ought to be made worth living … underlies all intellectual effort.” An answer to that question has to be the focus of left politics. The optimism of the Obama campaign spoke to a sense of meaning through American civil religion, pluralism, and greatness through diversity, but his administration’s failure to address growing economic disparity was a botched opportunity at speaking to material condition necessary to let spiritual conditions thrive. It would overstate the case to claim that this alone is the origin of our current malaise (it isn’t), but future left politics must offer the “hopey, changey stuff” in conjunction with actual changes to the economic order. 

Room for hope in the election of so-many first-time candidates to the House of Representatives who are beginning to offer radical policy suggestions from voices that are too often marginalized. Representatives elected in the midterm elections like Ayanna Presley from Massachusetts, Sharice Davids from Kansas, Debra Haaland from New Mexico, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from New York are all signs that the Democratic Party – which like it or not remains the only effective means of enacting a progressive agenda nationally – can draw strength from its left flank. All four women, and others elected for the first-time, offer not only just the possibility of checking Trumpism, but of enacting their own positive politics of meaning.

But what must be fully considered in the long run is that we face a future where if we continue on our current path environmental Armageddon isn’t just possible but likely, where neoliberal economic policy threatens to render all of us unnecessary, and where unfettered technology isn’t used as a liberatory tool but rather as a system of surveillance and propaganda. As all that is solid melts into air; what is required is a new language of meaning. On a wall in Paris during the student protests of 1968 some radical spray-painted “Be realistic, demand the impossible.” A half century later that advice still holds. Now we have work to do.

          Marketing in 2019: Look beyond impressions and click-throughs, says Criteo      Cache   Translate Page      

With 2019 just around the corner, what are some ways that marketers can evolve and fine-tune their strategies in the year ahead? Alban Villani, the managing director of Criteo in Southeast Asia, Hong Kong and Taiwan, has three tips for readers of CMO Innovation.

Combine your offline and online data

Data integration is no longer a good-to-have, but a priority for brands who want to succeed in the year ahead, according to Villani. Data is key to delivering an exceptional customer experience but serves as the foundation to give marketers the unified view that they need to keep a close eye on the customer journey.

“Since mobile shoppers browse and purchase across devices and channels, skillfully navigating between online and offline channels, it’s imperative for the bottom line that brands and marketers’ access and examine customer data from the point where they start browsing, to actual purchase and payment,” he said.

Look to customer lifetime value

And far from being fixated at legacy metrics such as impressions and click-through rates that are fast becoming outdated, marketers should evolve their measurement metrics with Customer Lifetime Value (CLV), says Villani.

CLV is used to denote the total value a customer brings to a retailer’s business throughout their lifetime, and offers a more holistic, insight-led approach. Increasing customer retention and brand loyalty are two other benefits of monitoring CLV.

Brands should not stop at owned data when it comes to measuring the CLV either but seek expand their data pool by collaborating through anonymized data assets to bring in additional incremental value for their business: “By partnering with a strong advertising platform for CLV analysis, marketers can reconcile customer identities across anonymous and known data sources.”

Keep an eye on upcoming technologies

Finally, marketers can expect artificial intelligence (AI) to continue disrupting the retail industry, as hyper-connected customers continue to demand and expect relevant advertisements that speak to them, he says.

“This forces marketers to rethink their customer engagement approach by investing in automation and machine learning technologies that deliver personalized experiences. Applying these new technologies in the back-end will unearth deeper insights that match customer browsing and purchasing behaviors at unprecedented rate,” he said.

“AI will touch every aspect of customer engagement and drive a new wave of business efficiency,” he summed up.

          HK to connect and excel      Cache   Translate Page      

Over the past 18 years, the Federation of Hong Kong Business Associations Worldwide has excelled in helping to connect overseas entrepreneurs with Hong Kong. Indeed, the Federation’s mission is closely aligned with the Government’s theme of Connect & Excel - in other words, how connecting with Hong Kong can help people and businesses excel in our region.

 

For those of you on a return visit to Hong Kong, I am sure you have noticed how rapidly our city is evolving. Indeed, we take pride in our ability to adapt and keep pace with the latest innovations and developments in the global economy.

 

Let me first give you a snapshot of Hong Kong’s current economic situation. Our economy remains strong. Latest figures show that the real GDP growth in the third quarter this year is 2.9%. This marks the eighth consecutive quarter of growth above the trend growth rate of 2.7% per annum in the past decade. Our full-year GDP for 2018 is forecast to be 3.2%.

 

The inflation rate is moderate at 2.8% in the third quarter of 2018, and unemployment remains at a record-low 2.8%. Also worth noting is that our exports still grew 5% in the third quarter compared to the same period last year.

 

These figures underscore the robustness of our economy. However, uncertainties in the global situation and outlook are cause for concern, not least the trade dispute between China and the US. To address the possible impact, we have launched a number of measures to help businesses, in particular small and medium-sized enterprises, that may be affected. We have enhanced our various funding schemes to assist them in developing new export markets, and strengthened the export credit insurance provided to exporters. We have also improved our loan guarantee scheme to make it easier and cheaper for SMEs to borrow from the banks. Given the increasing interdependence of the global economy, we shall continue to monitor the global economic situation very carefully, and implement timely countermeasures as appropriate.

 

Coming in from the Hong Kong International Airport, I am sure the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge has caught your eye. Yes, it is open. The other major cross-boundary transport infrastructure, the Hong Kong section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link, is operating as well. The Express Rail Link connects Hong Kong to the over 25,000-kilometre high-speed train network on the Mainland, while the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge conveniently connects Hong Kong to cities on the west bank of the Pearl River Delta. These two mega projects are expected to create growth opportunities for various industries, not least tourism, trade, logistics, and financial and professional services.

 

Financial services is one of our key competitive strengths. Over the past 11 months, we have introduced a number of initiatives to further enhance our competitiveness.

 

On listing regime, since April this year, we have allowed high-growth and innovative companies with weighted voting rights structures, as well as pre-revenue biotech companies, to list on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. We are confident that the new listing regime will meet the needs of the new economy, thereby further enhancing the attractiveness and competitiveness of Hong Kong’s listing platform to issuers from different jurisdictions.

 

On bond market, we have introduced a three-year pilot bond grant scheme to subsidise bond issuance costs of up to $2.5 million per case for eligible enterprises issuing bonds in Hong Kong for the first time.

 

Furthermore, riding on the accelerating global demand for green financial products, we have introduced a Green Bond Grant Scheme and will soon launch a Government Green Bond Programme with a borrowing limit set at $100 billion to jump-start Hong Kong as a green finance hub. In fact, for the first half of this year, we have already attracted 15 issues of Green Bond in Hong Kong raising an aggregate amount of US$8 billion.

 

On fund management, we have been working very hard to attract more funds of various types to base and develop their business in Hong Kong. To achieve this, we have launched new fund structures and provide profit tax exemption of 100% to attract certain fund managers to Hong Kong, particularly those who are not familiar with the trust law to choose Hong Kong to base their operations. Indeed, we are working to make further legislative amendments to provide a more favourable operating and tax environment to the fund industry to make Hong Kong the private equity hub in Asia.

 

We are also developing Hong Kong as a global business hub attracting enterprises to establish their regional headquarters or corporate treasury centres here.

 

On government-to-government level, we will continue to expand our network of free trade agreements, investment agreements and avoidance of double taxation agreements with economies around the world. In June this year, Hong Kong and Georgia signed an FTA (Free Trade Agreement), thereby expanding the FTA network into the Caucasus region. We also have just completed negotiations with Australia on a comprehensive FTA plus investment agreement. We are also exploring an FTA with the Pacific Alliance, comprising Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru and intend to seek accession to the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership after completion of negotiations by ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) and other relevant economies. We are also exploring with the UK options for forging closer economic ties, including possibly an FTA in the future. The whole idea of expanding this FTA, apart from expanding our export market, is to make Hong Kong a better place to be the regional headquarters of overseas companies.

 

To step up our presence in the international arena, we are expanding the network of our Economic & Trade Offices (ETO). This will help to strengthen ties with strategic markets, tap business opportunities and boost direct investment into Hong Kong. Discussions with the Government of the United Arab Emirates on a new ETO in Dubai are progressing well, and we expect to have the ETO set up soon - our first ETO in the Middle East. Meanwhile, in Thailand, a new Bangkok ETO is expected to commence operation early next year. It will be our third ETO in the ASEAN region after Jakarta and Singapore. Together with the ASEAN-Hong Kong FTA coming into full force in early 2019, we anticipate a much closer relationship with the ASEAN Economic Community.

 

On innovation and technology, we are making substantial investments and are working closely with neighbouring cities such as Shenzhen. In the past two years’ Budget and Policy Address, we have already committed over $100 billion. Some are being spent, and some are to support the initiatives to come. Also, works for the Hong Kong-Shenzhen Innovation & Technology Park at the Lok Ma Chau Loop are progressing according to schedule.

 

We have allocated, for example, $10 billion to build two clusters in the Science Park, one on artificial intelligence and robotics, while the other is healthcare technology. We have launched the Technology Talent Scheme and updated our Talent List to make it easier for foreign tech gurus and professionals to come to Hong Kong to work. Also, we have been implementing a number of schemes to provide funding and technical support to startups and tech companies. Indeed, another $10 billion has been given to the Science Park - about 30% of it is to build additional infrastructure and the remaining $7 billion is for them to tailor-make specific incentive packages to attract foreign tech companies to come to Hong Kong. We have also started a fund to work with venture capitalists to co-invest in startups and tech companies.

 

We welcome multinational corporations to leverage on Hong Kong’s platform and set up their regional treasury centres here. We are providing 50% profits tax reduction to help make this happen.

 

The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area development is rapidly taking shape. For the information of our guests from overseas, this area covers some 56,000 sq km with a combined population of about 70 million - larger than that of the Tokyo and San Francisco Bay Areas combined. Covering nine major cities in Guangdong Province, plus the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau, the Greater Bay Area generates an aggregate GDP of around US$1.5 trillion, which is slightly larger than that of Australia and is comparable to Korea. And it is the most affluent region on the Mainland. It is right on our doorstep, brought even closer to Hong Kong by the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge and the high-speed rail link. The Greater Bay Area offers tremendous opportunities for Hong Kong businesses and businesses that partner with Hong Kong.

 

As you can see, we are investing boldly in Hong Kong’s future, but what really gives our city its unique competitive edge is the “one country, two systems” arrangement. Since the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region in 1997, we have continued to operate as a separate customs territory with our own financial, tax and legal systems. After 21 years, the enduring success of “one country, two systems” is clear. The US-based Heritage Foundation has ranked Hong Kong as the world’s freest economy for 24 years in a row; the Swiss-based International Institute for Management Development rates Hong Kong as the second most competitive economy globally. The World Bank lifted Hong Kong to the fourth place in its latest Ease of Doing Business Report, and the World Economic Forum places Hong Kong top in Asia for judicial independence.

 

I must also mention that a new report by PricewaterhouseCoopers and the World Bank finds Hong Kong to have the most business-friendly tax system in the world - profits tax of 8.25% on the first $2 million of profits of corporations and 16.5% thereafter; salaries tax capped at 15%. No inheritance tax, no capital gains tax, no GST or VAT. That's what we call business-friendly!

 

Ladies and gentlemen, I have mentioned just a few of the initiatives that will continue to strengthen Hong Kong’s attractiveness to overseas investors and entrepreneurs. By diversifying our economy, boosting cross-border connectivity and promoting I&T as a driver for growth, we can withstand current and future economic headwinds and capture new opportunities arising from the Greater Bay Area development and the Belt & Road Initiative.

 

Some of you may wonder, given the current global uncertainties arising from the Sino-US trade conflict and others, whether we still have the resources to implement counter measures and to continue to invest in the future. Let me assure you, the fiscal position of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government is very strong. We have an accumulated surplus of over $1.1 trillion, not to mention about $600 billion in the Exchange Fund. We have the financial capacity to invest in our future, to grow our economy further, to continue to improve the living of our people, and to allow us to tackle economic headwinds ahead.

 

Financial Secretary Paul Chan gave these remarks at the 19th Hong Kong Forum luncheon on December 5.


          Innovation education enhanced: CS      Cache   Translate Page      

The measures recommended by the Education Bureau to unleash potential in innovation are being implemented progressively, while the relevant curriculum guides have also been updated.

Chief Secretary Matthew Cheung made the statement in response to questions from legislator Elizabeth Quat at the Legislative Council today.

 

He said the Government has made significant efforts to promote education in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) projects.

 

Mr Cheung also noted that the Government's efforts aim to align with the worldwide educational trend and equip students with necessary knowledge and skills in response to economic, scientific and technological developments, and changes in society.

 

In the 2017-18 school year, the Government enhanced coding education at the primary level to develop students' computational thinking skills.

 

It is also reviewing the Information & Communication Technology Curriculum for the senior secondary level and considering incorporating content related to artificial intelligence.

 

Mr Cheung emphasised STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education is not a separate or a new subject, saying it is being promoted in primary and secondary schools through key learning areas including science, technology and mathematics education.

 

“In accordance with their school context and their students’ interests and abilities, schools may adopt different emphases and plans when implementing STEM education.

 

“Some schools, for example, have implemented STEAM education by incorporating elements of arts education,” he added.

          Press Releases: The 2018 Zoohackathon Global Winner      Cache   Translate Page      
Media Note
Office of the Spokesperson
Washington, DC
December 4, 2018


The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs is pleased to announce Team Yamakapi, from the Zoohackathon in San Diego, California as the 2018 Zoohackathon global winner. The runners-up were Team CheeTrack, from Entebbe, Uganda and Team Zoocchini, from New Delhi, India.

Zoohackathon supports U.S. efforts to reduce wildlife trafficking, raises public awareness among new and diverse audiences, and empowers participants to become part of the solution. During this year’s Zoohackathon, over 275 university students, software professionals, and wildlife enthusiasts created unique technological solutions to combat wildlife trafficking. Events took place in Kuala Lumpur, Madrid, Mumbai, New Delhi, Entebbe, and San Diego.

Team Yamakapi, participants of Zoohackathon San Diego, developed “Conscious Consumer,” a Google Chrome browser extension that educates online shoppers about product sustainability through sensitive key terms related to conservation. Consumers receive a notification alerting them if a product they are attempting to buy contains certain key terms, illegal wildlife parts, or is unsustainable. The browser extension aims to help change consumer purchasing behavior, reduce demand for illegal wildlife products, and prevent the extinction of wildlife species.

Team CheeTrack, from Zoohackathon Entebbe, created an online solution that identifies and tracks cheetahs in captivity using artificial intelligence and machine learning. Team Zoocchini, from Zoohackathon New Delhi, developed “Claw Net,” a web tool and interactive platform that identifies web searches through “code words” commonly used to refer to illegal wildlife items. ClawNet also contains a map of trade routes for law enforcement, illustrating which buyers and sellers respond to the identified web searches.

Final paragraph below; on a related note, see The Race Is On to Protect Data From the Next Leap in Computers. And China Has the Lead. | NYT
"When it comes to artificial intelligence, public-private collaboration and coordination is reportedly pervasive, and China has recruited big Chinese tech firms as part of the “AI national team.” Western commentators often portray the success of Chinese technology firms as the result of unfair practices, like theft of intellectual property and the provision of state subsidies. But, as Kai-Fu Lee notes, this also stems from China’s ability to endorse particular objectives and set the tone for private capital choices, as it has done in seeking to foster the development of artificial intelligence. China likewise leads the way in providing infrastructure to support these technological developments, such as building cities and highways with built-in sensors designed to facilitate the use of driverless cars. The Chinese government views its state capitalist model as a national strength that does not contradict international trade rules, which that it needs to secure against U.S. attempts to halt or reverse China’s rise. A key question for the future of international economic law is whether these different economic models will be able to coexist under the same legal framework."

AI allows for lawyers to gain back precious time and focus on essential matters such as meeting with clients or making court appearances. What is Artificial Intelligence? You may be wondering what precisely artificial intelligence is and how it plays into the practice of law. Artificial intelligence studies fundamental human interactions and task, to learn how to complete tasks that typically require human intelligence. Computers use algorithms to analyze data over time and then learn patterns and insight. This process allows AI to work in different capacities at a firm.

          The trade war could crush China's AV dreams      Cache   Translate Page      

As part of the Trump administration’s efforts to hold China accountable for unfair treatment of American companies, the Commerce Department on Nov. 19 proposed new export controls, traditionally limited to sensitive weapons technologies, that could bring China’s ambitious autonomous vehicle push to a screeching halt.

Why it matters: The move to block exports of these “emerging” and “foundational” technologies from the U.S., even by non-American companies, would limit partnerships with Chinese firms and possibly the employment of Chinese nationals in the U.S. AV industry, since technical information could qualify as an export.


Details: The proposed restrictions include computer vision, artificial intelligence, geospatial positioning, computer chips and memory, and mobile electric power — technologies critical to the development of AVs.

  • Baidu, Xpeng Motors and other Chinese AV players rely heavily on chips by companies like NVIDIA and sensors from companies like Velodyne (at one industry showcase, 85% of Chinese companies used its lidar).
  • China’s strategy document for the AV industry instructs companies to purchase foreign players to obtain key technologies — an approach that is now imperiled, as this list will be used by the interagency panel that reviews foreign investments in U.S. companies.

What to watch: Public comment is open until Dec. 19 and industry is likely to push back, as these export controls would have an impact on broad swathes of the economy — from self-driving cars to biotech. Changes within the Treasury or Commerce Departments, where leadership transitions have been rumored, could also shape the outcome.

Be smart: Even if the U.S. takes no action, the Chinese side likely will. China’s plan for its auto industry calls for the entire supply chain to be “secure and controllable” (i.e., to exclude foreign participation), and President Xi has made it clear that “core technologies” must be in Chinese hands. Multinational corporations, take note.

Patrick Lozada is a director in the China practice of Albright Stonebridge, a strategic advisory and commercial diplomacy firm.


          Something is substantially broken when it comes to work      Cache   Translate Page      

For the last several years, some of the world's leading thinkers have fretted over robots and artificial intelligence, with one particular worry — whether jobs across the U.S. and the rest of the advanced economies are going to be wiped out.

The big picture: As of now, no one truly knows what will happen, but everyone agrees on one point — that something is substantially broken when it comes to work. Most Americans have not received a real wage increase in decades, one-third of working-age people are not part of the labor force at all, and the education system seems divorced from the future economy.


So fraught has the subject become that radical solutions are now getting mainstream attention.

What's happening: President Trump won the 2016 election in large part by repositioning the Republican Party as the defender of rank-and-file workers in down-on-its-luck communities in Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. Trump had captured the zeitgeist that almost no one else could see.

But the evidence for a building problem was hiding in plain sight in the form of blighted cities, communities and states. The problem of future work had been outlined, too: In 2013, two young researchers at the Oxford University published a thundering study forecasting that 47% of future U.S. jobs could be automated in the coming decades. More recently, studies by McKinsey have said that a massive reskilling of workers can avoid that outcome. But other studies said that, while that may be right, there is no solution on the horizon for flat wages.

Now Oren Cass, Mitt Romney's former domestic policy adviser and a fellow at the Manhattan Institute, argues that the problem is so profound that it will only be solved by essentially throwing out the long-standing economic policies of both parties.

His new book, "The Once and Future Worker," rejects the usual explanations — that the problem is robots and automation. Rather, he says, public policy has pushed many workers away from physical labor, to which most are suited, and meanwhile taken whacks at the industrial economy, including extraction industries, that might employ these workers.

Cass told me that the entire economic system should be reordered away from a worship of greater GDP and toward wage growth, higher participation of workers in the labor force and a higher savings rate. The focus of policy should not be on supporting college for everyone, but on skills education. "What we want for society is more than just a larger economic pie," he says.

  • Evidence that the system has failed, he argues, is that, although GDP has tripled since 1975 and spending on lower-income families has quadrupled, poverty has risen and wages have been flat.
  • As a remedy, Cass, like Trump, takes a gigantic step away from decades of orthodoxy, urging an abandonment of both Great Society anti-poverty programs and supply-side tax cuts, arguing that both have resulted in the swath of Americans left behind.
  • Public policy ought to attend primarily not to the health of companies nor the support of poor people, but specifically to workers — building a system in which people of all abilities can obtain a productive job. He calls this "productive pluralism."

The bottom line: The problems and the solutions that Cass proposes are neither Republican nor Democratic. The strength of the book is in striking a much-needed challenge to business as usual. But Cass is conspicuously attempting to give an intellectual foundation to Trump's off-the-cuff policymaking and to influence White House policy and 2020 candidates. In that sense, his book is a political screed. But he is asking the right questions and proposing what is probably needed — an upside-down change to economic policy.

But what happens when the machine has learned to sing your voice back to you? The "AI baby" of Herndon and her partner Mat Dryhurst is called Spawn, a project two years in the making. The pair first showcased their creation this past April in Berlin, where the artificial neural network reproduced the voices of her parents and interacted with the sounds made by guests at the installation. Spawn improvised and learned from her environment. And now the rest of the world can hear Spawn sing. "Godmother" was generated by

          Overcoming FOMO – The Reality of Legal Tech      Cache   Translate Page      
Do you have FOMO – fear of missing out on new legal technology? You are not alone. Many publications and conferences suggest legal tech will disrupt lawyers. And that unless you license many new tools, you’ll fall behind. To address this fear, I recently collaborated on a white paper about legal technology with LOD, Lawyers on Demand. LOD is “one of the largest and fastest growing flexible legal services businesses, continuing to lead the market we created.” You can download the complete white paper here. I summarize highlights here. We tackled the question of whether lawyers, especially in-house counsel, should worry about FOMO and adopt more  legal technology. Our answer, in brief: no. But that doesn’t mean you can ignore legal tech. Despite hundreds of recent legal tech start-ups, lawyers work today largely as they did two decades ago. For example, artificial intelligence (AI) – despite robot lawyer predictions – has mainly…

          TrustArc Engages with Singapore PDPC and Leading Privacy Think-Tank CIPL      Cache   Translate Page      

TrustArc proudly participated at events co-sponsored by the Singapore Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC) and the global privacy and security think-tank, Centre for Information Policy Leadership (CIPL), on November 15-16 in Singapore.  

On topics ranging from certifications and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), to regulatory sandboxes, to artificial intelligence, TrustArc was honored to be invited to engage in terrific conversations and workshops with global thought-leaders in the public and private sectors.

Darren Abernethy, TrustArc Senior Counsel, spoke on a panel entitled “The Role of Certifications as Accountability and Compliance Tools.”  This session focused on how certifications can serve accountability and compliance functions for organizations by facilitating achievement of a comprehensive privacy and data protection program; providing third party verification; offering oversight and dispute resolution; and, in some cases, supplying government backstop enforcement. There was also consensus that industry-recognized certifications are highly useful in the B2B vendor selection process for risk mitigation; act as a symbol of trust to the C-suite, consumers and partners; and are increasingly relevant in the mergers and acquisitions context.

Before the 200-plus audience members, special attention was given to the APEC Cross Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) and Privacy Recognition for Processors (PRP) Systems, as these certifications meet the above criteria and have taken on new significance for multi-national corporations and small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) alike, with the certification systems’ recent and ongoing adoption in additional APEC member economies (including four of the top six U.S. trading partners), the extension to data processors through the PRP System, and the certification of SMEs.  TRUSTe serves as the Accountability Agent for CBPR and PRP certifications in the U.S.

Darren moderated a second panel entitled “The Role of Certifications in Data Transfers and Global Interoperability.” This session focused on interoperability–which in addition to the possibility of mutual recognition, can also encompass scalably leveraging work done towards one certification or compliance framework in service of another–and began with an overview of different global data transfer mechanisms. The latter included discussion of EU binding corporate rules (BCRs), adequacy decisions, the up-to-the-minute status of GDPR certifications, codes of conduct, and the APEC CBPR/PRP Systems.

Discussion points on the panel included the heightened prevalence and significance of the APEC Privacy Framework in free trade agreements; the use of the BCR-CBPR “Referential” to interoperably achieve each transfer mechanism; how governments and regulators can incentivize certification participation; and examples of how regional transfer frameworks are expanding. A common view was that the APEC Systems have a foundational advantage over many others in that they offer an already-established infrastructure for enforceable, accountability-based mechanisms for intra- and inter-company cross-border transfers.  

TrustArc also participated in a working session held in the Singapore offices of a leading technology company, wherein the diverse group of industry participants discussed the key features of the concept of a “regulatory sandbox.”  This notion may be understood as a supervised safe space for piloting and testing innovative products, services, business models or delivery mechanisms in the real market, using the personal data of real individuals. The participants evaluated some of the hypothetical pros, cons and challenges of such an approach.

Lastly, TrustArc took part in an all-day interactive working session on accountable and responsible artificial intelligence, likewise co-sponsored by the Singapore PDPC and CIPL. This engaging series of sessions showcased current AI-related uses by varied companies, with an eye towards how to generate sufficiently robust and inclusive data sets, manage the “training” of such datasets, how best to address the issue of inherent bias and unintended discrimination, and industry approaches to demonstrating accountable and responsible AI in practice–from a regulatory and internal practices standpoint. The sessions were both informative and a great springboard for future developments.

A new survey by Ponemon and ServiceNow of nearly 3,000 cybersecurity professionals reveals that in the past 2 years, 48% of companies have experienced a data breach. Clearly companies can’t afford to forge blindly ahead, doing the same old “business as usual.”

In this episode Bob Bragdon, Senior Vice President and Publisher of CSO, and Piero DePaoli, Sr. Director for Security and Risk at ServiceNow, explore the cost of conducting “business as usual.”

The truth is, hackers and criminals aren’t operating in a business-as-usual way anymore, says DePaoli. “They’re employing new methods and tricks and looking for a simple crack into an organization. Fifty-four percent of the respondents to our survey said that hackers are outpacing enterprises with technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence.”
