The attack on encryption in Europe is very real. We obtained a leaked document from the EU showing Spanish officials want to ban end-to-end encryption.

Beyond this, the document shows the views of 20 countries on encryption, and how it relates to a controversial proposed law that would allow companies to scan people's chats to hunt for child sexual abuse material.

The majority said they are in favour of some form of scanning of encrypted messages.

The document also reveals that a lot of countries don't appear to know how end-to-end encryption works, with many proposals being technically infeasible.

How Russia killed its tech industry

The invasion of Ukraine supercharged the decline of the country’s already struggling tech sector—and undercut its biggest success story, Yandex.

shouldn't the conversation be about the use of our personal and private data from any company - foreign or domestic - not just the ones with apps we opt into using? #privacy #tech #tiktok #video #montana #government

...companies. He may speak up now or hold his truth forever.

Ok, back to #RL. This is what happened to #Google's #AI developers when they raised the alarm at the erstwhile "Don't be evil" company:

And weeks later, even #Google's #Godfather of #AI,
Dr. Geoffrey Hinton, resigns:

@HistoPol Assuming you're sincere, here's the paper that warned Google about it, which resulted in the authors getting fired from Google https://dl.acm.org/doi/pdf/10.1145/3442188.3445922

Google’s vision for the future of search shows how generative AI is all about increasing corporate power.

Instead of sending you to different websites, Google has scraped the open web to generate plagiarized answers to keep you looking at ads on Google. We need to stop being distracted by AI hype and fantasies about intelligent machines, so we can push back on the real threats before it’s too late.

The media is obsessed with the story of Geoffrey Hinton, the “godfather of AI” who left Google to warn us about his life’s work.

Hinton isn’t worried about the immediate harms of AI and even dismisses those concerns as not “existentially serious.” But his warnings are nothing but sci-fi fantasies that distract us from real problems. For Disconnect, I argue we should ignore him.

I have sufficient reason and evidence to believe that I was terminated from Rune Labs in retaliation for protected anti-discrimination whistleblowing activity.

Normally, NDA would prohibit me from disclosing this. However, thanks to Washington’s Silenced No More Act, my ability to speak about discrimination, harassment, or retaliation that I have witnessed in the workplace is legally protected.

🔊Boosts appreciated.

In the article, we argue that authoritarian states' dependence on foreign digital technologies and services can shape and constrain their capacity to control, surveil, and repress domestically.

To illustrate our argument, we examine how Russia's war against Ukraine and the sanctions imposed on Russia in response have influenced its domestic repressive capacities.

A transistor made of wood

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2023/04/230427114509.htm

"We didn't create the wood transistor with any specific application in mind. We did it because we could. This is basic research, showing that it's possible, and we hope it will inspire further research that can lead to applications in the future," says Isak Engquist.

A true fundamental researcher quote 😁
