FOX News

Fox News Flash top entertainment and celebrity headlines are here. Check out what's clicking today in entertainment. Kristen Doute said she is doing some soul-searching after being fired from "Vanderpump Rules" along with castmate Stassi Schroeder for past racially insensitive actions involving former Black cast member Faith Stowers. The 37-year-old spoke about how she's changing and growing as a person on the "Hollywood Raw" podcast with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn. "It was definitely none of my business to take anything to social media [and] essentially send a mob out to this person. It was really just not my place to go there," she said.

Heybaby is a new dating app for parents and people who want to be parents

Mashable

As you scroll through dating apps you start to spot trends, like fishing photos or mentions of The Office. Often a potential match has a photo with a child, and their bio says something akin to, "That's just my nephew." Or niece, or cousin, or whatever small relative one feels compelled to show suitors. If you're only looking for hookups, it's somewhat justifiable to make it clear that you're not a parent. While users may want future partners to see how good they are with children -- hence the nephew photos -- it's likely just to relate back to their sex appeal.


How significant is the role of Artificial Intelligence in Digital Marketing?

#artificialintelligence

AI or artificial intelligence in digital marketing has a broadened range of applications and it's quite significant in the digital era. The revolutionary incorporation of this phenomenal technology emerged out to be highly innovative and has been known to exhibit human-like efficiency, if not, with a more enhanced version of the "think and respond" characteristic. The integration of AI algorithms is not limited to digital marketing services alone but seen beyond GPS systems, voice recognition systems, hashtags in social media, etc. AI not only saves a huge amount of your precious time but also surges your competitive performance. This evolving and dynamic technology is truly becoming inevitable for all domains.

Facebook creates robot to wrap fibre over live power lines

ZDNet

Facebook Connectivity, in league with ULC Robotics, has developed a robot capable of winding optical fibre on live medium voltage (MV) power lines that typically serve residential areas in much of the world, at a claimed cost three to five times cheaper than traditional aerial fibre construction. Karthik Yogeeswaran, wireless systems engineer at Facebook Connectivity, said in a blog post the idea for the project came after travelling through rural Africa and noticing the ubiquity of power line infrastructure, which is far "more pervasive than the total fibre footprint of the country". In order to keep costs down, Facebook needed to lower the preparatory and manual work needed to wind fibre around power lines, and to minimise disruption of electrical services, the robot needed to able to do its job on a live line and be able to avoid and cross obstacles it encountered. Keeping the weight of the robot within the limits that a medium voltage power line could handle was a key challenge because it would limit the amount of fibre it could carry, so the size of the cable needed to be reduced. "Using the MV power line as a support adds a number of additional challenges. The first is the voltage stress. MV conductors can have a voltage as high as 35kV which can cause degradation phenomena such as tracking, partial discharge, and dry band arcing," Yogeeswaran said.

'Booyaaa': Australian Federal Police use of Clearview AI detailed

ZDNet

Earlier this year, the Australian Federal Police (AFP) admitted to using a facial recognition tool, despite not having an appropriate legislative framework in place, to help counter child exploitation. The tool was Clearview AI, a controversial New York-based startup that has scraped social media networks for people's photos and created one of the biggest facial recognition databases in the world. It provides facial recognition software, marketed primarily at law enforcement. The AFP previously said while it did not adopt the facial recognition platform Clearview AI as an enterprise product and had not entered into any formal procurement arrangements with the company, it did use a trial version. Documents published by the AFP under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 confirmed that the AFP-led Australian Centre to Counter Child Exploitation (ACCCE) registered for a free trial of the Clearview AI facial recognition tool and conducted a pilot of the system from 2 November 2019 to 22 January 2020.


Facebook built an acrobatic robot to install fiber-optic cable on power lines

Mashable

Facebook's experiments in internet connectivity haven't always gone well. But its latest innovation seems genuinely cool. Facebook Connectivity announced Monday that it has developed a robot that can travel along power lines deploying a thin yet durable fiber-optic cable of Facebook's own creation. It claims that this system, which utilizes the electrical grid to build out internet infrastructure, will be cheaper than the existing methods of laying internet cables, particularly in developing countries. That contributes to Facebook Connectivity's overall goal of increasing internet access.


'White Mirror' on the wall - what does the future hold for us all ?

#artificialintelligence

It's time to reset, re-create and collaborate on a new paradigm where Compassion and Kindness are the prevailing norms, one where technology is a tool for making humans more humane and creating an Abundant world for the majority. Join us to turn this vision into reality. Let's look into the'White Mirror' … Inspired by Black Mirror (Netflix series) - 'White Mirror' (holding name while we devise a suitable one) provides an immersive flash forward (glimpse/vision) of our Utopian future. In uncertain times (like now), technological disruption and impactful stories can change our mental worldview - our perceptions and eventually our reality. Black Mirror is a powerful show, depicting a dystopian future caused in part by misused evolving technologies.
