“Conquérir une terre où les seuls personnages humanoïdes issus de l’île sont des zombies qualifiés de « corrompus » est une image loin d’être fine. Le journaliste de Polygon, Colin Campbell, trouve que le jeu montre ces ennemis « avec la même vision exterminatrice que la majorité des colons avaient des gens qu’ils rencontraient dans les nouvelles terres ».”

“Around 250 bounty hunters and related businesses had access to AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint customer location data, according to documents obtained by Motherboard. The documents also show that telecom companies sold data intended to be used by 911 operators and first responders to data aggregators, who sold it to bounty hunters.

“After training our agents for an additional week, we played against MaNa, one of the world’s strongest StarCraft II players, and among the 10 strongest Protoss players. AlphaStar again won by 5 games to 0, demonstrating strong micro and macro-strategic skills. “I was impressed to see AlphaStar pull off advanced moves and different strategies across almost every game, using a very human style of gameplay I wouldn’t have expected,” he said. “I’ve realised how much my gameplay relies on forcing mistakes and being able to exploit human reactions, so this has put the game in a whole new light for me. We’re all excited to see what comes next.”

“Recent studies have shown that stigmergy is not necessary to explain concerted construction: Green et al. showed that worker aggregation rather than the previously suspected presence of cementation pheromone localized excavation work sites in termites, and Bruce found no behavioural response to freshly excavated soil that would contain a digging pheromone were it an organizing factor in excavation in leafcutter ants. Eciton army ants, which self-assemble into bridges to cross trail gaps, gauge the necessity to reinforce or leave these structures based purely on the rate of physical contact with passing workers with no evidence of stigmergic processes.”

“A Dutch surgeon formally disciplined for her medical negligence has won a legal action to remove Google search results about her case in a landmark “right to be forgotten” ruling.
