why a u.s. vs. china tech cold war’ could be upon us

PERILOUS STAKES FOR BOTH SUPERPOWERS You might have noticed that things haven’t been entirely harmonious between the U.S. and China lately – well, even less so than they normally are, we could say. Earlier this month, the Trump administration added Huawei to a trade blacklist that effectively prohibited American businesses from doing business with the Chinese tech titan. But what are the likely implications of this brewing spat for the U.S., China, Huawei and the world – including ordinary technology users? As one may expect, there has been a wide range of reactions to the U.S. government’s bold move, although there is at least consensus that it could be an extremely significant one insofar as the ongoing ‘trade war’ between the two countries is concerned. Indeed, it has been suggested that the development…

massachusetts speaker: no facial recognition at statehouse

House Speaker Robert DeLeo is assuring visitors to the Massachusetts Statehouse they’re not being subjected to facial recognition. In a written statement, the Winthrop Democrat says: “There is no such technology used at the State House.” The comment was part of a longer statement DeLeo’s office sent out late Thursday in response to students who had gathered at the Statehouse for several days to protest higher education costs. One of the protesters said he was told by an unnamed official that the Statehouse uses facial recognition to match the faces of people who walk through public entrances with law enforcement databases. DeLeo denies the use of facial recognition at the Statehouse. The Statehouse has been ramping up security, recently adding additional security cameras throughout the building.…

colorado students photographed for facial recognition study

More than 1,700 people walking on a University of Colorado campus were unknowingly photographed as part of a facial recognition research project funded by U.S. intelligence and military agencies, a newspaper reported. Professor Terrance Boult set up a long-range surveillance camera in an office window at the Colorado Springs campus. It captured more than 16,000 images of passersby during the spring semesters of 2012 and 2013, The Denver Post reported Monday. The research project, which was first reported by the Colorado Springs Independent, received funding from U.S. intelligence and military agencies, including the Office of Naval Research and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Boult’s research examined whether facial recognition algorithms could meet standards for use by the U.S. Navy. The research then aimed to improve the technology after Boult’s team found…

nashville software school becomes pillar of tech community

When AllianceBernstein was still operating under secret code name “Project Stella” in Nashville last year, the global financial firm’s chief technology officers visited the city to see whether to locate its new headquarters here. Among their stops was the Nashville Software School, a 7-year-old program that has evolved from a scrappy startup to a pillar of the tech community that local business leaders are eager to celebrate. AllianceBernstein officials have since become a regular presence at the school’s demo days, and at least six recent graduates have joined the firm’s payroll. “We have hired a bunch of folks from his programs,” Karl Sprules, who leads technology and operations for AllianceBernstein, said. “We like what he is doing.” The “he” Sprules describes is John Wark, a laid-back and unassuming tech entrepreneur who formed…

Apple’s flagship laptop has been supercharged with an 8-core Intel processor, doubling its performance. This week, we go hands-on with the new MacBook Pro and ask what’s next for the Mac lineup. With rumors suggesting that the arrival of a new Mac Pro and a 16-inch MacBook are just around the corner, 2019 could be Apple’s biggest year yet for hardware… MORE POWER, MORE PRO “With great power comes great capability,”says Apple of its new MacBook Pro.

walmart hires former google, amazon exec for new tech role

Walmart has hired a tech veteran whose resume includes stints at Amazon, Microsoft and Google for a newly elevated position of chief technology officer and chief development officer. Suresh Kumar, who was most recently at Google as its vice president and general manager of display, video, app ads and analytics, will report directly to Walmart’s CEO Doug McMillon. The moves come as Walmart is trying to compete better with Amazon and other technology companies. Walmart Inc.’s former chief technology officer Jeremy King left the company in March to join Pinterest. The retailer emphasized that Kumar is not a replacement for King but rather assumes a much larger global role and will set the company’s technical strategy. King had reported to Walmart’s U.S e-commerce chief Marc Lore. Kumar starts July 8.…
