Arizona Makes It Illegal To Record Cops From Less Than Eight Feet Away

Sep 24, 2022

from the is-that-8-cop-feet-or-8-civilian-feet? dept Courts (with the rare exception) are in agreement: there’s a First Amendment right to film cops.

It’s little wonder cops aren’t thrilled about the recordings they can’t control. But that should be a cop problem that g ...read more

SpaceX and Dish’s Super-Shady War for the World

Sep 24, 2022

Billionaires, satellite links, political chicanery: a present-day, oligopolistic game of jockeying for prime placement in the 12-gigahertz spectrum has at least a few of the ingredients of a thriller. Or—given the outsize personalities involved (including Elon Musk and Michael Dell) and the epic, five-year duration of the dispute to date—maybe more like a space opera.At issue is a set of frequencies where Musk’s SpaceX sets its Starlink Internet service, the company's well-publicized play ...read more

We’re Training AI Twice as Fast This Year as Last

Sep 24, 2022

According to the best measures we’ve got, a set of benchmarks called MLPerf, machine-learning systems can be trained nearly twice as quickly as they could last year. It’s a figure that outstrips Moore’s Law, but also one we’ve come to expect. Most of the gain is thanks to software and systems innovations, but this year also gave the first peek at what some new processors, notably from Graphcore and Intel subsidiary Habana Labs, can do. The once-crippling time it took to train a ne ...read more

Unity boss says game devs who refuse to embrace monetization are "f**king idiots"

Sep 24, 2022

A hot potato: Those of a certain age may remember a time when buying a video game meant a one-off payment for purchasing and enjoying the title in its entirety. These days, many full-price titles come with microtransactions of some sort, yet you'll often find developers who shun such things are lavished with praise from gamers. Unity CEO John Riccitiello, however, doesn't share this view; he thinks devs who don't embrace monetization are "f**king idiots." In an interview with PocketGamer.biz ...read more
