Russia Turns the Switch off on LinkedIn

LinkedIn, the major global professional social network, has finally been banned in Russia after a Moscow court upheld an earlier decision by Russian state media watchdog Roskomnadzor. LinkedIn stands accused of failing to comply with a 2014 federal law requiring internet companies that process Russian citizens’ personal information to store their user data on servers located in Russia. Many had considered the 2014 law unenforceable, and LinkedIn is hardly alone in processing user data away from Russian shores. Many observers think LinkedIn was selectively banned by Roskomnadzor to improve its negotiating position on data localization with other companies.

Oui, c'est un distributeur automatique un peu plus grand et un peu plus évolué. Il faut néanmoins venir remplir les rayons à la main.

What happens when our computers get smarter than we are?

What happens when our computers get smarter than we are? | TIES | Scoop.it
Artificial intelligence is getting smarter by leaps and bounds -- within this century, research suggests, a computer AI could be as "smart" as a human being. And then, says Nick Bostrom, it will overtake us: "Machine intelligence is the last invention that humanity will ever need to make." A philosopher and technologist, Bostrom asks us to think hard about the world we're building right now, driven by thinking machines. Will our smart machines help to preserve humanity and our values -- or will they have values of their own?
