San Francisco: As Facebook turns 15 next month, its Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has once again defended the social media giant, saying the company is not selling its users` data to anyone. "We don`t sell people`s data, even though it`s often reported that we do," he wrote in an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal on Thursday. "Clickbait and other junk may drive engagement in the near term, but it would be foolish for us to show this intentionally, because it`s not what people want," he added. The 1,000-word defence came after Facebook faced intense scrutiny over how it handled data of over two billion users amid several data scandals in recent years. "Based on what pages people like, what they click on, and other signals, we create categories and then charge advertisers to show ads in that category," he said. "You have control over what information we use to show you ads, and you can block any advertiser from reaching you," the Facebook CEO added. In December, the social media … [Read more...] about Facebook not selling users’ data: Mark Zuckerberg

From Apple’s Siri to Google’s Assistant, smart assistants are now a daily part of many people’s lives. Now, Amazon Alexa users can turn to their smart assistants for NHS health advice, thanks to a new partnership announced today. While Alexa would previously give health advice based on popular responses, the smart assistant will now give answers based on NHS information, which has been verified by health professionals. The Department of Health hopes the new system will help patients, especially the elderly, blind and those who are unable to access the internet in other ways, take more control of their healthcare and help reduce the burden on the NHS. An Amazon spokesperson said: "Customer trust is of the utmost importance, and Amazon take privacy seriously. Customers are in control of their voice history. They can review and delete voice recordings in the Alexa App or by visiting amazon.co.uk/privacy. They can also opt-in to “delete what I just said” … [Read more...] about Amazon Alexa now offers NHS health advice – but critics call it ‘data protection disaster’
Trepidation made its home firmly on his face on Thursday, announcing its presence with lines of anxiety and the repeated jumpy widening of his eyes.Rediff.com Thursday, December 7, was possibly the worst day of the Sheena Bora murder trial for Shyamvar Pinturam Rai. Its toll was fairly visible. By the end of trial lawyer Sudeep Pasbola's three-hour cross examination of Rai, who was the Mukerjeas' driver, he was exhausted. More, he appeared insecure. Worried. Edgy. He gave off, at times, tense glimmers of smiles to CBI Special Judge Jayendra Chandrasen Jagdale. He was not the chirpy Rai of previous court sessions who reeled off blithe "Yaad nahins" to every question put to him, Trepidation made its home firmly on his face on Thursday, announcing its presence with lines of anxiety and the repeated jumpy widening of his eyes. The hands that grasped the railings, Rai sometimes flexed restlessly. He kept scuffing his toes and transferred weight from one leg to the other. Three hours is a … [Read more...] about Sheena Bora trial: Was the driver lying?
As the trial proceeds, Peter is beginning to look more and more haggard while Indrani by contrast is blossoming.Rediff.com Shyamvar Pinturam Rai had studied up till Class 10 in his tiny Danwa village school, nearly 170 km from Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, before he came to Mumbai. But Friday, November 17, it was discovered, at the Sheena Bora murder trial, that Indrani and Peter Mukerjea's former driver might not be much more than an angutha chaap (an illiterate who uses a thumb print to sign his name). Ten odd years of education seemed to have not taught him the difference between his angutha (thumb) and his ungli (finger), the court learned. Or else a few decades in Mumbai have taught him too much, in its School of Street Smarts. Friday's hearing at CBI Special Judge Jayendra Chandrasen Jagdale's Courtroom 51, south Mumbai, like Wednesday, once again dwelled on Rai's dodgy right thumb. This was the thumb that had been bitten by victim Sheena Bora when the driver was allegedly helping … [Read more...] about Sheena Bora Trial: Indrani’s eyes sparkled…

The first question Mike Merritt-Holmes gets asked when pitching his AI strategy is about his resume: which hedge fund did he work for? But Kvasir Technologies doesn't come from an established corner of finance. And neither does the man touting it. Merritt-Holmes founded the machine-learning fund with two fellow computer scientists who made their mark in the world of big data at analytics firm Teradata Corp. The trio subsequently harnessed their engineering acumen to power machine-learning stock investing in developed markets, financed by their personal savings. Before they crossed paths, only one had professional market experience. Emboldened by their trading successes, the team now expects to oversee around $135 million by December. Kvasir is among a cohort riding a wave of interest in artificial intelligence to uncover new investing riches -- empowering computer nerds and data wizards to take on seasoned money managers on Wall Street. "People are really keen to see fresh new thinking … [Read more...] about Little-known data wizards take on the pros at new AI hedge fund
