A Smart Lamp That Watches Kids When They Study Is a Hit in China

“The lamps come equipped with two built-in cameras—one facing the child and another offering a bird’s-eye view from above—letting parents remotely monitor their children when they study. There is a smartphone-sized screen attached to each lamp, which applies artificial intelligence to offer guidance on math problems and difficult words. And parents can hire a human proctor to digitally monitor their children as they study.In addition to the basic version of the lamp, a $170 upgraded model sends alerts and photos to parents when their children slouch. That version of the lamp sold out on China’s largest e-commerce platforms earlier this month.”

“Projects on Scratch contains “a great deal of humiliating, fake, and libelous content about China,” including placing Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan in a dropdown list of “countries”, a state-run news outlet reported on August 21. The article added that “any service distributing information in China” must comply with local regulations, and Scratch’s website and user forum had been shut down in the country.”

“En 1997, Henri M. a été nommé représentant officiel de la DGSE à Pékin, où il a occupé le poste de deuxième secrétaire à l’ambassade. Mais il a été rappelé en France dès le début de l’année 1998, après avoir entamé une liaison avec l’interprète chinoise de l’ambassadeur. Il a pris sa retraite quelques années plus tard et est retourné en Chine en 2003, où il a épousé l’ex-interprète, avec laquelle il s’est installé sur l’île de Hainan, dans le sud de la Chine. Pourquoi ont-ils été interpellés si tard ? Il y aurait eu, selon un bon connaisseur du dossier, une faille au sein de la DGSE et Henri M. n’aurait pas été surveillé pendant des années après son départ à la retraite.”

“On a cool day late last September, half a dozen Chinese engineers walked into a conference room in the heart of Geneva’s UN district with a radical idea. They had one hour to persuade delegates from more than 40 countries of their vision: an alternative form of the internet, to replace the technological architecture that has underpinned the web for half a century. Whereas today’s internet is owned by everyone and no one, they were in the process of building something very different — a new infrastructure that could put power back in the hands of nation states, instead of individuals.”

“All mobile phone users in China registering new SIM cards must submit to facial recognition scans, according to a new rule that went into effect across the country on Sunday […].

China’s education ministry said in September it would “curb and regulate” the use of facial recognition after parents grew angry when facial recognition software was installed without their knowledge at a university in Nanjing to monitor students’ attendance and focus during class.”

‘The American companies’ moves are likely to escalate tensions between Washington and Beijing, elevating fears that President Donald Trump’s goal is to contain China, triggering a protracted cold war between the world’s biggest economies. In addition to a trade fight that has rattled global markets for months, the U.S. has pressured both allies and foes to avoid using Huawei for 5G networks that will form the backbone of the modern economy.“The extreme scenario of Huawei’s telecom network unit failing would set China back many years and might even be viewed as an act of war by China,” Koontz wrote. “Such a failure would have massive global telecom market implications.”’

“Le groupe vient de signer, discrètement, un accord avec Huawei qui s’occupera désormais du cloud des clients français de l’opérateur. Les services secrets, qui notaient la proximité entre la firme et Pékin, s’étranglent : les données des clients iront directement sur les serveurs chinois. L’opérateur nuance : cela ne concerne pas les entreprises, et, toujours selon le Canard, c’est à cause de Free, « si on veut rester compétitifs sans licencier, il faut bien qu’on noue des alliances avec les acteurs les moins chers du marché » se plaignait un cadre de l’opérateur.”
