Sennheiser discloses monumental blunder that cripples HTTPS on PCs and Macs

“Audio device maker Sennheiser has issued a fix for a monumental software blunder that makes it easy for hackers to carry out man-in-the-middle attacks that cryptographically impersonate any big-name website on the Internet. Anyone who has ever used the company’s HeadSetup for Windows or macOS should take action immediately, even if users later uninstalled the app.”

“The map  takes the more than 6.6 billion location mentions across the 850 million worldwide news articles monitored by GDELT 2015-2018, snaps them to a 0.001 degree grid and then visualizes the final dataset. Locations are not sized by the number of mentions they receive, meaning a major metropolis mentioned tens of millions of times will still only appear as a single small dot in the image below. Due to artifacts of the rasterization pipeline you will see a few areas of the map below with rectangular artifacting – those are technical issues, rather than meaningful geographic patterns”

“Smart Compose is an example of what AI developers call natural language generation (NLG), in which computers learn to write sentences by studying patterns and relationships between words in literature, emails and web pages. A system shown billions of human sentences becomes adept at completing common phrases but is limited by generalities. Men have long dominated fields such as finance and science, for example, so the technology would conclude from the data that an investor or engineer is “he” or “him.” The issue trips up nearly every major tech company. ”

“A plus code is like a street address for people or places that don’t have one. Plus codes give addresses to everyone, everywhere, allowing them to receive deliveries, access emergency services, register to vote – and more. A plus code address looks like a regular address, but with a short code where the street name and number would be. These addresses exist for any location, even for places where there are no roads. ”

“Près de 10 000 canaux témoins effectuent des mesures de bruit 24 h/24, des microphones, des magnétomètres, etc. Si le groupe de Jackson veut ces données, il n’a qu’à les demander. Elles représentent l’équivalent d’un camion rempli de disques durs!” – Neil Cornish – LIGO.

“ Cette année, Roblox devrait verser 70 millions de dollars à sa communauté de créateurs, plus du double de l’année précédente. Une logique qui a déjà permis à des codeurs de 13 ans de gagner près de 100 000 dollars… par mois. Joueurs ou créateurs, tout le monde semble y trouver son compte, peu importe l’apparente simplicité des jeux proposés. Pour comprendre ce qui fait le succès de Roblox, nous sommes allés à la rencontre de sa communauté française.”

Google Health

“Google has been accused of breaking promises to patients, after the company announced it would be moving a healthcare-focused subsidiary, DeepMind Health, into the main arm of the organisation.The restructure, critics argue, breaks a pledge DeepMind made when it started working with the NHS that “data will never be connected to Google accounts or services”. The change has also resulted in the dismantling of an independent review board, created to oversee the company’s work with the healthcare sector, with Google arguing that the board was too focused on Britain to provide effective oversight for a newly global body.”
