Some interesting points about the flaws and problems with contact tracing apps. I can relate.

I live in a second floor flat and can see many of the flaws mentioned happening here: When pairing Bluetooth I regularly see stuff I don't know who owns it, could easily be one of the flats either side of me or the flat below me (I'm the top floor, so there can't be anything from above). Should they decide to just use location (nothing is impossible with the imbeciles in our government...) I would be in exactly the same place as the guy living below me and the folks on the ground floor. I think over the last couple of months I've met the guy living below me twice in the staircase, the people from the ground floor I think I've only met once.

When I go out for my daily exercise walk most of the people I meet are regulars with the few odd ones out thrown in. So I won't know which one of them triggered the alarm, so I can't think about the meetings I've had. Most are very good in keeping their distances (in particular the regulars), although some are closer than I would like. A few days ago I had a 5 minute chat with one of the regulars. He is one of the best in keeping distance, he almost jumps into the canal while I'm hugging the fence on the other side of the towpath. While we were chatting (after we had passed each other) I estimate we were more like 4 metres apart, if not even 5 metres. No distance for Bluetooth. But I suspect the app would trigger an alert.

Considering all the crap and fake Coronavirus news I've seen being shared in particular on Facebook I wouldn't be surprised if the Russians and other actors would jump at the opportunity, Not to mention all the pranksters. I predict they will get very creative, very imaginative. They will come up with all kind of schemes to create alerts and panic, schemes not even the security professionals have thought of yet.

I'm not optimistic for a contact tracing app.

#UK #police deny responsibility for poster urging parents to report kids for using #Kali #Linux

Virtual machines, the #Tor Browser, Kali Linux, #WiFi Pineapple, #Discord, and #Metasploit are all deemed terrible finds and the poster urges parents to call the cops "so we can give advice and engage them into positive diversions."
Just a few years ago I would have been burnt at the stake.

Interesting interview, albeit not too recent, with my friend Leila Gharavi touching on many contemporary issues within #society and #technology .
Still relevant now as then: "Today, I would tell you that details only make sense within a big picture. One of the reasons why we can’t close the centuries-old gender gaps (among others), despite all the efforts, is that generation after generation we make ourselves busy attending to the details, which is absolutely necessary but sadly, not sufficient."

Opinion: AI For Good Is Often Bad | WIRED

Trying to solve poverty, crime, and disease with (often biased) technology doesn’t address their root causes.
Exactly. Technology alone does not solve social issues.

When the A.I. #Professor Leaves, #Students #Suffer, #Study Says


Source: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/06/technology/when-the-ai-professor-leaves-students-suffer-study-says.html
For years, big tech companies have used huge salaries, bonuses and stock packages to lure artificial #intelligence experts out of #academia.
...
The talent shift could accelerate the development of artificial intelligence inside tech giants like #Google, #Microsoft, #Amazon and #Apple.
But at the universities the professors left, graduating students were less likely to create new A.I. companies. When they did, they attracted smaller amounts of funding, according to the study. The effect was most pronounced in the field of “deep learning,” a #technology that has become a crucial part of new A.I. systems.

Good post about W3W, some new points/problems with it I wasn't aware of (eg the dodgy internationalisation) as well as some familiar concerns:
