'Hate is in the ether': Research finds hate is resilient on the internet
The online networks formed by hate groups may be more resilient than previously thought, and social media companies could need to adopt different tactics to keep them away, according to research released Wednesday. Even as social networks such as Facebook have vowed to do more to remove hate speech from their platforms, at least some of the people who spread it are finding ways to still organize online, either through competing sites or other ways to avoid detection, according to the findings...

Can Virtual Simulations Teach a Human Skill Like Empathy? - EdSurge News
Can you learn empathy through interacting with a computer—even though, by definition, the skill requires understanding and sympathizing with real people? When Kathleen Marek first heard about virtual simulations designed to help teachers be more responsive and even empathetic to students in distress, she was skeptical. “I thought it was interesting that it was computer-based,” says Marek, who works as the mental health program coordinator for Santa Clara Unified School District in California...

Welcome to the age of the regreditorial.
Smith Collection/Gado/Getty Images Ask almost anyone: Our brains are a mess and so is our democracy. In the last several years, we’ve seen increased focus on the crimes of the “attention economy,” the capitalist system in which you make money for enormous tech companies by giving them your personal life and your eyes and your mind, which they can sell ads against and target ads with. The deleterious effects of, say, the wildfire sharing of misinformation in the Facebook News Feed, on things o...

'Mirror Worlds' Creator Wants to Displace Facebook—With Blockchain
David Gelernter’s giant macaw, Ike, has taken a tumble. One moment he was there, offering agreeable squawks as Gelernter spoke, and then, in a flash of lightning, he wasn’t. Ike is fine, the 64-year-old Yale computer scientist assures me, simply stunned. “Luckily he’s as light as a bird. So he can fall great lengths and it doesn’t bother him,” he says. Now where was he? Oh yes, Gelernter was in the middle of telling me about his plans to revolutionize social media—emphasis on revolution. Greg...

Cyberwarfare escalation just took a new and dangerous turn

Will the rise of A.I. and automation lead to mass unemployment?
If you’ve been following the conversation about technological unemployment and the threat of robots and A.I. stealing jobs, you may have come across the prediction that 47% of current jobs in the U.S. are at risk of automation. That figure comes from a widely cited 2013 paper, titled “The Future of Employment.” One of that paper’s co-authors, Dr. Carl Benedikt Frey, has now expanded on the thesis in a new book. Frey is co-director of the Oxford Martin Programme on Technology and Employment at...

San Francisco Returns to Cash as Silicon Valley Pushes Tech on Nation – Old-Thinker News
Old-Thinker News | May 20, 2019 By Daniel Taylor Is a ban on facial recognition and a return to cash showing backlash against Big Tech coming from its home turf? As Facebook plans on rolling out a cashless payment system, San Francisco is banning credit-only stores, requiring businesses to accept cash. District Five Supervisor Vallie Brown, who introduced the legislation, said that not allowing cash was unfair to immigrants and the homeless. Brown wants to go further and ban Amazon's cashless stores. The SFGate added: Some people also prefer to use cash because they don't want to leave a digital trail of where they have been and what they have bought. San Francisco has also banned government use of facial recognition technology. Wired Magazine reports: San Francisco’s ban comes amidst a series of proposals that highlight tensions between the city and tech companies that call it home. On Tuesday, the city also unanimously approved a ban on cashless stores, an effort aimed at Amazon’s cashierless Go stores. Waiting in the wings? A so-called “IPO tax,” in response to the endless march of tech companies going public, which would authorize a city-wide vote to raise the tax rate on corporate stock-based compensation. The Chinese social credit system utilizes cashless payment to control individuals who have a low score. Multiple individuals in the United States have been banned from banks for their political views while Big Tech purges and censors their content online.
