why we shouldn’t get so outraged over kids’ screen time

THERE ARE HEALTH AND PRACTICAL REASONS NOT TO BE TOO WORRIED It’s always fascinating to read of the ‘moral panics’ that arise from time to time with regard to how much of our finite time we should spend looking at screens. Unless you’ve printed off this article, you’re presumably staring at a screen right now, and you may well work in a job that requires you to spend a large proportion of the day doing so. However, that doesn’t stop many of us being anxious about the subject of screen time – not least when it comes to our children. THE ARGUMENT OVER HOW MUCH SCREEN TIME OUR CHILDREN ‘SHOULD’ HAVE First of all, let’s not deny one thing: that children do routinely invest a considerable proportion of their free time into looking…

moratorium urged on use of facial recognition technology

Legislation that would hit pause on the use of facial recognition technology by police and other public agencies is gaining steam on Beacon Hill, as privacy and civil rights advocates say the technology is proliferating with little regulation and despite concerns about its reliability. The bill’s Senate sponsor, Democratic Sen. Cynthia Creem, said a moratorium is needed in part because the pace of technology is too fast for the law and the public to keep up and understand its implications. “I personally don’t want Big Sister watching me unless there are some rules, unless I know that it’s effective, that it works, that it’s doing its job and that it’s being regulated,” Creem said. “None of that is happening right now.” The bill includes a preamble that finds that the “government use…

what’s your data worth to big tech? bill would compel answer

As Congress bears down on big tech companies, two senators want to force giants like Google, Facebook and Amazon to tell users what data they’re collecting from them and how much it’s worth. The legislation floated Monday by Sens. Mark Warner, D-Va., and Josh Hawley, R-Mo., goes to the heart of the tech giants’ lucrative business model: harvesting data from platform users and making it available to advertisers so they can pinpoint specific consumers to target. “When a big tech company says its product is free, consumers are the ones being sold,” Hawley said in a statement. “These ‘free’ products track everything we do so tech companies can sell our information to the highest bidder and use it to target us with creepy ads. Even worse, tech companies do their best…

apple announces plan to add 2,000 jobs in seattle

Apple officials say the company plans to add 2,000 software and hardware jobs in Seattle in the next five years with 200 jobs by the end of this year. The Seattle Times reports officials made the announcement at a news conference with Mayor Jenny Durken. Apple is leasing space in two 12-story buildings nearing completion one block from the core Amazon campus in the city’s South Lake Union neighborhood. Apple last year announced plans to employ more than 1,000 Seattle workers by 2022. Currently it employs 500 people in the city in its retail stores and its office downtown where machine-learning technology is the focus. Apple bought Seattle startup Union Bay Networks, a cloud-networking company, in 2014. Two years later it acquired another Seattle startup, Turi, that focused on machine learning.…

cryptocurrencies need close scrutiny, monitor warns

An international financial monitor warned world leaders this week that wider use by retail shoppers of cryptocurrencies like Libra, unveiled last week by Facebook, would need “close scrutiny” by regulators. The chief of the Financial Stability Board made the statement in a letter to the heads of state and government who will gather at the Group of 20 summit on June 28-29 in Osaka, Japan. Finance officials are debating how to regulate cryptocurrencies after Facebook unveiled Libra, a digital form of cash linked to existing currencies. Cryptocurrency is a form of digital money that uses encryption technology to make it secure. Cryptocurrencies exist not as physical bills or coins but rather as lines of digitally signed computer code. FSB chair Randal K. Quarles, whose letter doesn’t mention Libra by name, said technological innovation…
