Privacy and safety tendencies
DNS over HTTPS is rolling out in all major browsers. “Its important”. Although there are some security concerns, and resist from ISPs, DNS over HTTPS shapes it much more difficult for ISPs( and others) to move and resell your internet application garbs. The ISPs had this coming.( Will they block access to other epithet servers, like 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 ?) “A Cage Went in Search of a Bird” is a must-read portion on the future of privacy, riffing off an proverb by Franz Kafka. Here’s a really short summary of the article: engineerings grant supremacy, and that ability will be used unless you think very carefully about how you demand ability to be used.OpenTitan is an open source chip designing from Google to verify that hardware can be trusted, from the firmware up.Although the Chinese government is highly opposed to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum, they are building their own, and starting to talk more about it. They have some fairly strong guarantees about user-controllable privacy–as long as you don’t want to keep anything private from the Chinese government.
So far, virtual reality has been about vision. The next gradation may be virtual touch. You wear a wireless device against your skin that has large numbers of very small embedded actuators.Volumetric capture is a big step forward in 3D photography and VR. Google is working on it. More important( though fairly obvious ): the future of computer imagination is AI; it’s not the collect of algorithms for specific tasks that you find in traditional CV libraries.
Google is buying Fitbit, clearly to compete with Apple( and to keep Wear OS relevant ). The acquisition itself isn’t as important as the return of interest in digital health.Google’s alliance with Ascension Health( which is able to really be moving Ascension to the vapour, but appears to be more about representing data available for research) is generating a lot of skepticism. That doubt may be deserved, but one of the biggest problems hampering state study is data access. The job collects many ethical issues; we don’t hitherto know how they’ll be addressed.
Google is building a general-purpose learning robot. I disbelieved this will ever be a consumer product, but it’s an interesting idea. Is it possible to build a robot that does things like sort recyclables? If you’ve ever look back a trash bin at a meeting, you know it’s something humen can’t be riled to do.Along same, though more fearing, texts: Boston Dynamics’ robotic puppy has been used by the Massachusetts State Police in at least two cases. The lease agreement between Boston Dynamics and the police specifies that the robots may not be used to “physically harm or daunt beings, ” but it remains to be seen whether the users will stick to those mocks. What does “intimidate” even planned, when a robot is involved?
Kubernetes isn’t the only game in town, even though it killed off all its early competition. It’s a first-generation product, and likely to be supplanted. Fargate on AWS is starting to get traction, and HashiCorp has a collection of commodities that compete.It’s worth paying attention to the drama around open generator permissions, which are more interesting now than at any time in the past decade. One new turn is the Hippocratic License, which accepts anyone to use the software for purposes that don’t do trauma. It’s an attempt to formalize the desire to prevent software from being used in military applications.It’s easy to think of agriculture as low-toned tech, but that’s erroneous: Microsoft is working on AI-enabled agriculture. I would not be surprised to see similar efforts at Google and Amazon, to say nothing of the companies that are already in the agriculture sector, and a legion of startups.Microsoft and Warner Brothers are collaborating on bulk data warehousing on glass slithers. They can store a full-length movie on a 3×3-inch move, which will remain intelligible for more than 1,000 times. This addresses one of the long-standing archival troubles in compute. Paper is good for millennia, but digital storage just last for decades, if that.Photoshop in the camera in the phone: “its easy” to weigh Photoshop out, in particular with their controversial subscription licensing, but now they’re set it all the way into the phone. It’s a smart move.
