Waymo significantly outperforms comparable human benchmarks over 7+ million miles of rider-only driving


“When considering all locations together, compared to the human benchmarks, the Waymo Driver demonstrated: An 85% reduction or 6.8 times lower crash rate involving any injury, from minor to severe and fatal cases (0.41 incidence per million miles for the Waymo Driver vs 2.78 for the human benchmark) A 57% reduction or 2.3 times lower police-reported crash rate (2.1 incidence per million miles for the Waymo Driver vs. 4.85 for the human benchmark)This means that over the 7.1 million miles Waymo drove, there were an estimated 17 fewer injuries and 20 fewer police-reported crashes compared to if human drivers with the benchmark crash rate would have driven the same distance in the areas we operate.”

Une cyberattaque paralyse l’équivalent de la SNCF au Danemark



“Au Danemark, DSB, la principale société d’exploitation ferroviaire – équivalent de la SNCF – a été victime d’une impressionnante cyberattaque le 29 octobre 2022, paralysant tout le réseau de chemin de fer du pays pendant plusieurs heures. Les pirates ont piégé Supeo, un logiciel sous-traitant utilisés par les employés de l’entreprise, expliquent les médias nationaux. Les conducteurs de train s’en servent pour accéder aux informations opérationnelles en direct, telles que des informations sur des travaux et les limitations de vitesse.Il suffit de bloquer cet outil pour que tout l’engrenage s’arrête. L’opération n’a rien de très innovant non plus, puisque la société en charge du logiciel a subi un ransomware, l’obligeant à fermer tous les serveurs par mesure de sécurité. L’application est subitement tombée en panne pour tous les conducteurs, les obligeants à arrêter les trains par mesure de sécurité. ”

Rapports sur la mobilité de la communauté – COVID-19


“Les rapports sur la mobilité de la communauté sont destinés à fournir des renseignements sur les changements induits par les politiques de lutte contre le COVID-19. Ils présentent sous forme de graphiques les tendances de déplacement au fil du temps par zone géographique, mais aussi par catégorie de lieux, par exemple les commerces et espaces de loisirs, les magasins d’alimentation et pharmacies, les parcs, les arrêts de transports en commun, les lieux de travail et les lieux de résidence.”

“The milestone has been a long time coming for Amazon, which announced its Prime Air plans way back in 2013. But hardware limitations, not to mention health and safety regulation, presented big challenges for the company. It made its first successful drone delivery in Cambridge, England in 2016, but a regular commercial service never followed. Even now, Bloomberg notes that there are numerous hurdles standing in the way of Amazon and its competitors making routine deliveries. The FAA is expected to finalize new rules about flying drones over crowds before the end of the year.”

“Mobility Trends Reports Learn about COVID⁠-⁠19 mobility trends in countries/regions and cities. Reports are published daily and reflect requests for directions in Apple Maps. Privacy is one of our core values, so Maps doesn’t associate your data with your Apple ID, and Apple doesn’t keep a history of where you’ve been.”

“In principle, the concept of a « Corona App » involves an enormous risk due to the contact and health data that may be collected. At the same time, there is a chance for « privacy-by-design » concepts and technologies that have been developed by the crypto and privacy community over the last decades. With the help of these technologies, it is possible to unfold the epidemilogical potential of contact tracing without creating a privacy disaster. For this reason alone, all concepts that violate or even endanger privacy must be strictly rejected. In the following, we outline social and technical minimum requirements for such technologies. The CCC sees itself in an advisory and observation role in this debate. We will not recommend specific apps, concepts or procedures. We however advise against the use of apps that do not meet these requirements.”

Community Mobility Reports

“ As global communities respond to COVID-19, we’ve heard from public health officials that the same type of aggregated, anonymized insights we use in products such as Google Maps could be helpful as they make critical decisions to combat COVID-19. These Community Mobility Reports aim to provide insights into what has changed in response to policies aimed at combating COVID-19. The reports chart movement trends over time by geography, across different categories of places such as retail and recreation, groceries and pharmacies, parks, transit stations, workplaces, and residential. ”

Staying at Home During Coronavirus Is a Luxury

“Although people in all income groups are moving less than they did before the crisis, wealthier people are staying home the most, especially during the workweek. Not only that, but in nearly every state, they began doing so days before the poor, giving them a head start on social distancing as the virus spread, according to aggregated data from the location analysis company Cuebiq, which tracks about 15 million cellphone users nationwide daily.”
