L’équipe, qui assure notamment son impartialité en s’interdisant de recruter des membres encartés dans un parti, malgré leurs talents potentiels, compte aussi occuper le terrain grâce aux 50 jeunes qui sillonneront la France en mars et en avril, pour animer des rencontres sur les campus, dans les lycées, les clubs de foot… L’équipe ne cherche pas à convaincre le public de voter à tout prix mais veut simplement transmettre un message clair aux 18-35 ans : « La politique, c’est nous ». Et ainsi leur permettre d’agir en conscience.

Dit autrement, au nom de la neutralité, Voxe recrute des personnes peu engagées en politique pour convaincre de s’engager en politique.

News Feed FYI: Addressing Hoaxes and Fake News

« We believe providing more context can help people decide for themselves what to trust and what to share. We’ve started a program to work with third-party fact checking organizations that are signatories of Poynter’s International Fact Checking Code of Principles. We’ll use the reports from our community, along with other signals, to send stories to these organizations. If the fact checking organizations identify a story as fake, it will get flagged as disputed and there will be a link to the corresponding article explaining why. Stories that have been disputed may also appear lower in News Feed.

Suleyman also argued that the kind of General AI we see in movies today probably won’t look anything like the general AI systems we will get decades from now. “When it comes to imagining what the future will be like, a lot of that is fun and entertaining, but it doesn’t bear a great deal of resemblance to the systems that we are building,” he said. “I can’t really think of a film that makes me think: yeah – AI looks like that.”

La police de Floride a récemment arrêté qui s’adonnait au crime de voyeurisme avec son iPhone 5. Au cours de son interpellation, l’homme a autorisé verbalement les forces de l’ordre à fouiller son smartphone. Mais il est ensuite revenu sur sa décision en refusant de donner le mot de passe à 4 chiffres indispensable à cette opération.
Un premier magistrat a refusé que la police puisse forcer l’homme à donner son code au motif que cette demande revenait à l’obliger à témoigner contre lui-même, une pratique interdite par le cinquième amendement de la Constitution.
Mais aujourd’hui, la décision a été annulée par la cour d’appel de Floride. Celle-ci a considéré que le mot de passe n’est pas directement relié à des photos ou des vidéos criminelles qui pourraient figurer — ou pas — sur le smartphone.

Microsoft Translator erodes language barrier for in-person conversations

“Instead of the word being a thing by itself, it is represented by a 500-dimensional vector, or basically a 500 set of numbers, and each of those numbers capture some aspect of the word,” Menezes explained. To create a translation, neural networks model the meaning of each word within the context of the entire sentence in a 1,000-dimensional vector, whether the sentence is five or 20 words long, before translation begins. This 1,000-dimension model – not the words – is translated into the other language.
