British people are using Wi-Fi hotspots to watch porn in public

The Independent - Tech

One in 12 British people use public Wi-Fi to access pornographic content, according to a new report. Some of the most popular places to watch pornography in public are restaurants, train stations, offices and libraries, though the street is also a common choice. Norton by Symantec has warned public Wi-Fi users that they risk exposing themselves to hackers, unless they start taking proper precautions. The I.F.O. is fuelled by eight electric engines, which is able to push the flying object to an estimated top speed of about 120mph.

BMW's autonomous concept car of the future was cool, I guess

Mashable

As I approached San Francisco International Airport, my expectations for BMW's new concept car were as big as the looming Boeing 777F Lufthansa cargo jet waiting for me. I had surrendered my cellphone and everything in my purse but my drivers license to see BMW's iNext vehicle. Its tour started in Munich a few days earlier; it came to the Bay Area after a stop at New York's JFK airport, and was scheduled to continue on to Beijing.

We had been told very little about what we were going to see, except it was not only the "car of the future" but the "idea of the future."


Toyota trolls for techies along Tokyo's Nambu Line amid Silicon Valley's tense rivalry

The Japan Times

When it comes to recruiting tech talent, Toyota Motor Corp. is anything but subtle. The Japanese automaker recently launched a marketing campaign targeting information technology specialists and software engineers along Tokyo's suburban Nambu railway line, where the research centers of Japan's signature tech giants are clustered. "We want engineers from Nambu Line area more than from Silicon Valley," declares one poster at Mukaigawara Station, where one of the exits is designated exclusively for NEC Corp. employees. Toyota's talent raid is unusual in a country where lifetime employment is still the norm at many big companies. "It's very unique for a Japanese company as well-known as Toyota to blatantly target specific talent markets or companies with direct advertising in regional locations like this," said Casey Abel, managing director at recruiter HCCR K.K. based in Tokyo.


Visteon's Silicon Valley Technical Center to Lead Development of Artificial Intelligence for Autonomous Vehicles

#artificialintelligence

"Most current advanced driver assistance systems based on radar and cameras are not capable of accurately detecting and classifying objects – such as cars, pedestrians or bicycles – at a level required for autonomous driving," said Sachin Lawande, president and CEO of Visteon, a leading global cockpit electronics supplier. "We need to achieve virtually 100 percent accuracy for autonomous driving, which will require innovative solutions based on deep machine learning technology. Our Silicon Valley team, with its focus on machine learning software development, will be a critical part of our autonomous driving technology initiative." Visteon's recently opened facility in the heart of Silicon Valley will house a team of engineers specializing in artificial intelligence and machine learning. The center is located close to the West Coast offices of various automakers and tech companies, as well as Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley – two of the leading universities for artificial intelligence and deep learning in the U.S. In addition to leading Visteon's artificial intelligence efforts, the Silicon Valley office will play a key role in delivering control systems, localization and vision processing – interpreting live camera data and converting it to information required for autonomous driving.


CAGE director charged under anti-terrorism law for refusing to hand over passwords to police

The Independent - Tech

The international director of campaign group CAGE has been charged under anti-terror laws, after refusing to surrender his passwords to police. Muhammad Rabbani was arrested last November after handing his laptop and mobile phone to officers but refusing to unlock them, after being stopped and searched at Heathrow Airport. He has now been charged under Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act 2000. The I.F.O. is fuelled by eight electric engines, which is able to push the flying object to an estimated top speed of about 120mph.
