Facebook has begun using artificial intelligence to identify members that may be at risk of killing themselves.The social network has developed algorithms that spot warning signs in users’ posts and the comments their friends leave in response.After confirmation by Facebook’s human review team, the company contacts those thought to be at risk of self-harm to suggest ways they can seek help.A suicide helpline chief said the move was “not just helpful but critical”.The tool is being tested only in the US at present.It marks the first use of AI technology to review messages on the network since founder Mark Zuckerberg announced last month that he also hoped to use algorithms to identify posts by terrorists, among other concerning content.Facebook also announced new ways to tackle suicidal behaviour on its Facebook Live broadcast tool and has partnered with several US mental health organisations to let vulnerable users contact them via its Messenger platform.

We’re continuing our work to make Twitter safer, moving faster than ever to do so. During the past few weeks alone, we’ve made a number of changes on this front including updating how you can report abusive Tweets, stopping the creation of new abusive accounts, implementing safer search results, collapsing abusive or low-quality Tweets, and reducing notifications from conversations started by people you’ve blocked or muted. We’ve already seen an impact from these updates and we appreciate and value all of your feedback along the way.

This week we’re introducing additional updates that leverage our technology to reduce abusive content, give you more tools to control your experience, and communicate more clearly about actions we take.

Invisible Oregon

 

Created entirely with infrared converted cameras, Invisible Oregon is a study of light across time and space. As the sun rises over the State of Oregon infrared light travels across the earth revealing the subtleties of new growth and the dramatic intersection of sky and earth. Witness for the first time this diverse and interconnected landscape rendered from light we can’t see with our own eyes.

Ever since my youthful days of “experimentation” I’ve often wondered about the nature of reality. Those of you that still believe in science understand the limitations of our perceptions, and it’s no secret that many creatures exceed our abilities to interpret the world around us. The idea that we have to process the sensory data coming into our brains makes it seem like we are already a step removed from the real world.
So what exactly are we missing? What do animals experience that we can’t, and how do our human perceptions vary from person to person? While this film does nothing to answer these questions, time-lapse and infrared photography do, in a metaphorical sort of way, extend our sensory abilities so we can imagine a world beyond ours. Ultimately I think this is what draws us to these forms, not to solve the mystery, but to flirt with it’s boundaries.

Här skäller Ubers chef ut en av sina egna förare

Mitt under en pågående utredning av sexuella trakasserier inom Uber, anklagelser om att ha stulit mjukvara och andra problem så har en video publicerats där Trevis Kalanick, Ubers högste chef, skäller ut en av Ubers egna förare.

Videon visar hur Kalanick åker med egna av Ubers egna förare, som känner genom honom , och som framför kritik mot de höga krav som ställs på de bilar som Premium-resor ställer. Föraren, Fawzi Kamel, berättar att han tvingats att investera i en ny bil för att kunna motsvara kraven av att Ubers förändrade priser och regler kostar honom pengar. 

Meningsutbytet skruvas upp och till slut skäller Kalanick ut sin egen förare.

 

Team –

By now I’m sure you’ve seen the video where I treated an Uber driver disrespectfully. To say that I am ashamed is an extreme understatement. My job as your leader is to lead…and that starts with behaving in a way that makes us all proud. That is not what I did, and it cannot be explained away.

It’s clear this video is a reflection of me—and the criticism we’ve received is a stark reminder that I must fundamentally change as a leader and grow up. This is the first time I’ve been willing to admit that I need leadership help and I intend to get it.

I want to profoundly apologize to Fawzi, as well as the driver and rider community, and to the Uber team.

Travis
