WER HAT GESAGT KÜNSTLICHE INTELLIGENZ FUNKTIONIERT NICHT, HABE ICH GEFRAGT?
Another week, another Facebook leak. This time an Instagram dataset with apparently scraped profile information was found online.
A massive database containing contact information of millions of Instagram influencers, celebrities and brand accounts has been found online. The database, hosted by Amazon Web Services, was left exposed and without a password allowing anyone to look inside. At the time of writing, the database had over 49 million records — but was growing by […]
Meanwhile, another flaw from the Facebook universe. While it appears it’s not immediately related to data leakage, it gives great potential to 3rd parties, though. On the upside, nobody will attribute it to Facebook this time.
A WhatsApp vulnerability left Android and iOS devices open to attack from sophisticated surveillance software. The Facebook-owned company said it hasn’t yet been able to determine how many people were impacted, and told users to ensure they’re running the latest version of the app.
Microsoft trained an AI with Github projects that have more than 100 stars on them. The AI is supposed to help coding. And it is available now. AI is not yet there to take a programmers job, but Facebook took similar approaches to speed up development. Be afraid, coding people.
Facebook had a rough 2018 and 2019 didn’t really start too well either, when Instagram leaked passwords. Meanwhile, Amazon’s Alexa had it’s own scandal when it turned out that not machines but humans listened to their customers commands. With all of this combined, it doesn’t sound like a great idea to offer more surface for these kind of events. Still, Facebook seems to plan to release a voice assistant of its own.
There’s no indication that it will extend outside Facebook’s own hardware—yet.
Sieht so aus als ob Facebook nicht groß was an dem Umgang mit Privacy ändern will. Stattdessen werden Kritiker von dem Konzern eingekauft. Man wird nicht damit rechnen können, dass sich da von innen heraus was verändern wird. Gerade nachdem erst einmal angekündigt wurde, noch mehr Daten zu sammeln.
Facebook turns into myspace. Was about time, in particular after the recent incident with Cambridge Analytica. Now if only adults would stop moving there, too.
Overall, 24 percent of U.S. users have deleted the app while 42 percent have taken a break of several weeks or more.
I tiny intro to the most important technology in the worlds history.
Wow. Not for a single day in the past 18 years did I even remotely think Haskell had a future. Even more with fancy hipster languages like, Ruby (not so much anymore), Scala, Groove, Erlang or even Clojure showing up, in commercial environments. Facebook is proving me wrong.
