    BT ^ | 07/28/2015
    The global launch of Windows 10 is a pivotal moment for Microsoft as a consumer business, because in recent years Windows has started to matter a lot less.The rise of mobile devices has hit the PC market hard – and no more so than Microsoft, which has around 1.5 billion Windows customers, making it the market leader in that arena. (Snappa) This, combined with Apple’s OS X and Mac computer line-up regularly bucking the trend and actually increasing sales, has left Microsoft and Windows adrift in the technology world, with Google’s Chrome and Android dominating.(Snappa) But a hint of change...

    If you talk to the reporters who work for various big media companies, they insist that they have true editorial independence from the business side of their companies. They insist that the news coverage isn't designed to reflect the business interests of their owners. Of course, most people have always suspected this was bullshit -- and you could see evidence of this in things like the fact that the big TV networks refused to cover the SOPA protests. But -- until now -- there's never necessarily been a smoking gun with evidence of how such business interests influences the editorial...
  • Google could let you record, share and replay your memories [going forward]

    Here's how it would work: Wearing a headset similar to Google Glass, you will be able to record audio and video using a mounted camera. You could set the camera to record constantly, you could turn it on or off with a command, or you could set it to automatically start and stop recording during a set period of time or when you are at a particular location. As the video gets uploaded to Google's servers, you'd be able to go back and "Google" your own memories. To trigger memories, customers would ask Google questions like, "What were the paintings...

    Google's self-driving cars have got into quite a few accidents, but they've been caused by human-driven cars crashing into them, not the other way around. "Our self-driving cars are being hit surprisingly often by other drivers who are distracted and not paying attention to the road," head of Google's driverless car program Chris Urmson wrote in a blog post Thursday. He describes an incident in which a human-driven car (can you imagine: In a few years we may have to indicate that a car is human-driven more often than not) slammed into the back of Google's self-driving Lexus.

    A few weeks ago, Google researchers announced that they had peered inside the mind of an artificial intelligence program. What they discovered was a demonic hellscape. Youve seen the pictures. These are hallucinations produced by a cluster of simulated neurons trained to identify objects in a picture. The researchers wanted to better understand how the neural network operates, so they asked it to use its imagination. To daydream a little. At first, they gave the computer abstract images to interpret like a field of clouds. It was a Rorschach test. The artificial neurons saw what they wanted to see,...

    Mountain View, Calif. (CBS SACRAMENTO) Google was forced to apologize after its Photos program identified two black users as gorillas.

    Google says it is "appalled" that its new Photos app mistakenly labelled a black couple as being "gorillas". Its product automatically tags uploaded pictures using its own artificial intelligence software. The error was brought to its attention by a New York-based software developer who was one of the people pictured in the photos involved. Google was later criticised on social media because of the label's racist connotations. "This is 100% not OK," acknowledged Google executive Yonatan Zunger after being contacted by Jacky Alcine via Twitter. "[It was] high on my list of bugs you 'never' want to see happen."

    This week, Google released a research paper chronicling one of its latest forays into artificial intelligence. Researchers at the company programmed an advanced type of chatbot that learns how to respond in conversations based on examples from a training set of dialogue. And the bot doesnt just answer by spitting out canned answers in response to certain words; it can form new answers from new questions. This means Google's researchers could get a little creative with it, and they certainly did they asked the bot everything from boring IT questions to inquiries about the meaning of life. The responses...

The feature does exactly what its name implies: it lets you un-send an email for a short while after sending. Of course, it isn't reaching out and snatching the email back -- it just holds the email for a brief period sufficient...

That means our brains will be able to connect directly to the cloud, where there will be thousands of computers, and those computers will augment our existing intelligence. He said the brain will connect via nanobots -- tiny robots made from DNA strands. "Our thinking then will be a hybrid of biological and non-biological thinking," he said.

His return to the presidency had been accompanied by mass street protests that Putin accused the United States of fomenting. Russian suspicions of Western intentions have been further heightened because of tensions over Russias role in the conflict in Ukraine.

    Heres something that irks Chris Urmson: Sometimes people will get in self-driving cars, the spectacularly complex piece of technology he runs at Google and to which he has devoted most of his scientific career, and leave with a shrug. Once, Urmson was riding in one of Googles Lexus SUVs down a freeway. Several minutes in, his fellow passenger turned to him, nonplussed. Thats it? Urmson, recalling the story on Googles Mountain View campus earlier this week, threw up his hands: Do you have any idea how hard this is?! Soon, there may be many more blas reactions to one of...

    President Reuven Rivlin was born on September 9, 1939, in Jerusalem. However, according to the Google search engine, the tenth president of the State of Israel was born in Palestine. The Mayor of Raanana, Zeev Bielski, made the shocking discovery. While working on a speech for the arrival of President to Raanana, and I typed his name into Google in English, and then we were amazed to see that says he was born in Jerusalemin the Palestinian state, Bielski stated to Yediot Aharonot on Friday. [] This is not the first time that Google has leaned toward labeling parts of...

    Data privacy may seem like a distant and abstract concept but what is more personal than the information you are sharing with Google? Imagine you get a letter in the post offering you free water. Instead of paying Irish Water for your supply, another company promises you a generous quantity of free water. The catch? Instead of water meters, the company wants to install meters measuring the comings and goings to your home. They will also record who you know, who you communicate with and how often.They will store information on what you watch on television, what websites you visit...

    Google probably knows more about you than your mother, your partner, your boss... but chances are that you have no idea of just how much it knows. Fortunately, there's an easy way to open your eyes to the scale of just what the world's most popular search engine knows about you, your interests and your peccadillos. You may find yourself squirming when you realise Google never forgets what you've been typing into its search engine over the years, but, at least afterwards, you'll be able to do something about it. First things first, take a deep breath and visit: https://history.google.com/history/...

    Original full title/subtitle:Microsoft's secret weapon in browser wars: Mozilla's supercharged Asm.js Native-speed JavaScript available now in Windows 10's Edge browser Microsoft has included a surprise feature in its new Edge web browser for Windows 10, in the form of support for the ultra-optimizable Asm.js JavaScript dialect. First developed by Mozilla and championed by the nonprofit's former CTO Brendon Eich, Asm.js is a strict subset of JavaScript that aims to be the "assembly language of the web." By eliminating many of the vagaries of the JavaScript language syntax, Asm.js forces client-side web code into a form that is easy for Just-In-Time...

    THE ITHACA VOICE ^ | 04.30.15 | By: JEFF STEIN
    Ithaca, N.Y. A new study claims to track differing levels of racism across the United States by using Google search data. The results are not so good for the area that includes Ithaca. Large swaths of Western New York and the Southern Tier, according to the researchers, are far likelier than other regions of the country to input racist search terms into Google. That means the areas are more likely to be racist, according to the researchers, who tie the results to black mortality rates across the country. The study, published in PLOS One by data scientist Stephens-Davidowitz, was...

    Where do America's most racist people live? "The rural Northeast and South," suggests a new study just published in PLOS ONE. The paper introduces a novel but makes-tons-of-sense-when-you-think-about-it method for measuring the incidence of racist attitudes: Google search data. The methodology comes from data scientist Seth Stephens-Davidowitz. He's used it before to measure the effect of racist attitudes on Barack Obama's electoral prospects.
