indiana panel backs ban on drivers using handheld phones

A proposal to ban drivers from using handheld cellphones on Indiana roads is advancing in the state Legislature. A state Senate committee voted 8-1 to endorse the bill that only permits cellphone use with hands-free or voice-operated technology, except in emergencies. It would broaden the state’s current ban on texting while driving that officials say is unenforceable and doesn’t include actions such as emailing and using Snapchat or other apps. The House approved a similar version of the bill last month, which supporters say will help combat distracted driving and prevent many serious crashes. Tina Smith testified from a wheelchair about how she and her husband, Lorin, had stopped their motorcycle along a road when they were hit by a minivan whose driver was looking at a cellphone. Each lost a leg in…

can ai flag disease outbreaks faster than humans? not quite

Did an artificial-intelligence system beat human doctors in warning the world of a severe coronavirus outbreak in China? In a narrow sense, yes. But what the humans lacked in sheer speed, they more than made up in finesse. Early warnings of disease outbreaks can help people and governments save lives. In the final days of 2019, an AI system in Boston sent out the first global alert about a new viral outbreak in China. But it took human intelligence to recognize the significance of the outbreak and then awaken response from the public health community. What’s more, the mere mortals produced a similar alert only a half-hour behind the AI systems. For now, AI-powered disease-alert systems can still resemble car alarms — easily triggered and sometimes ignored. A network of medical experts and sleuths…

boeing asks lawmakers to suspend preferential tax rate

Washington state lawmakers introduced bills Wednesday, at The Boeing Co.’s request, to suspend the aerospace giant’s preferential business and occupation tax rate unless the United States and European Union reach an agreement on their long-running international trade dispute that would allow the lower tax rate. Democratic Sen. Marko Liias and Democratic House Majority Leader Rep. Pat Sullivan are the sponsors of the companion bills in the Senate and House. Under the legislation, starting on April 1, the company will no longer receive the 40% tax break that the Legislature adopted for the aerospace industry in 2003, which was expanded in 2013. Last year, the World Trade Organization body ruled that Boeing received an illegal U.S. tax break from Washington state that damaged sales by European archrival Airbus. The decision by the WTO’s appellate…

airbus to cut over 2,300 jobs at defense and space division

European plane maker Airbus said Wednesday that it plans to cut more than 2,300 jobs at its defense and space division by the end of next year, spreading the cuts across several countries. The company said Airbus Defence and Space presented the plan to employee representatives and launched a consultation process for the cuts. The plan would eliminate 2,362 positions in all — 829 in Germany, 357 in the U.K., 630 in Spain, 404 in France and 142 elsewhere. Airbus pointed to a “flat space market and postponed contracts on the defense side.” It noted that it had announced the need for restructuring in December and underlined the issue during an annual news conference earlier this month. The defense and space division “will provide updates on its plans and continues a constructive dialogue with…

swiss bank penalized over alleged fifa, venezuela corruption

Switzerland’s financial market authority has penalized Julius Baer bank for violating its obligations to fight money laundering over a nearly nine-year span. The sanctions are related to alleged corruption linked to Venezuela’s state-owned oil company and global soccer body FIFA. The authority, known as FINMA, cited Julius Baer for a “serious infringement of financial market law” and barred it from carrying out “large and complex acquisitions until it once again fully complies with the law.” The bank was also ordered to revamp its hiring and management of client advisers, and adjust its remuneration and disciplinary procedures. “FINMA has instructed Julius Baer to undertake effective measures to comply with its legal obligations in combating money laundering and rapidly finalise the measures it has already started putting in place,” the authority wrote in announcing the…

micro-location: see where we're headed

Far beyond helping you get from A to B or find your keys, location technology is unlocking unimaginable possibilities for the future of travel, education, entertainment, and business. With the right strategy, the tech in our pockets will make the world smaller than ever before. MICRO-LOCATION: WHERE WE’RE HEADED Nowadays, it seems like every aspect of our lives has been digitized. When you want to take a shower, you can open an app to set the temperature and wait for it to be ready; when you want some lunch, you open UberEats and see what’s on the menu; when you want to meet up with friends, you open an iMessage and create a calendar date for when everyone’s free. Though our devices are more connected than ever, one area that’s still lagging behind…
