Big gaps between the U.S. and Iran over the measures needed to roll back and limit the Iranian nuclear program are stalling the Vienna talks, European diplomats and former U.S. officials briefed on the issue tell me. What's happening: The Biden administration has said any deal to restore the 2015 nuclear accord must include a return by Iran to full compliance with its previous commitments.

Phillip Crawley: How AI helped Globe and Mail reach 170,000 digital subs


Phillip Crawley, the Englishman who runs Canadian national news title the Globe and Mail, is a newsroom executive of the old school. He has tales of working alongside Rupert Murdoch, sparring with Conrad Black, and editing the South China Morning Post during the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests. But Crawley, who also edited the Newcastle Journal between 1979 and 1987, has some strikingly new ideas about the future of journalism.

Machine-learning project takes aim at disinformation


What is new is how quickly malicious actors can spread disinformation when the world is tightly connected across social networks and internet news sites. We can give up on the problem and rely on the platforms themselves to fact-check stories or posts and screen out disinformation--or we can build new tools to help people identify disinformation as soon as it crosses their screens. Preslav Nakov is a computer scientist at the Qatar Computing Research Institute in Doha specializing in speech and language processing. He leads a project using machine learning to assess the reliability of media sources. That allows his team to gather news articles alongside signals about their trustworthiness and political biases, all in a Google News-like format. "You cannot possibly fact-check every single claim in the world," Nakov explains. Instead, focus on the source. "I like to say that you can fact-check the fake news before it was even written." His team's tool, called the Tanbih News Aggregator, is available in Arabic and English and gathers articles in areas such as business, politics, sports, science and technology, and covid-19. Business Lab is hosted by Laurel Ruma, editorial director of Insights, the custom publishing division of MIT Technology Review. The show is a production of MIT Technology Review, with production help from Collective Next. This podcast was produced in partnership with the Qatar Foundation. "Even the best AI for spotting fake news is still terrible," MIT Technology Review, October 3, 2018 Laurel Ruma: From MIT Technology Review, I'm Laurel Ruma, and this is Business Lab, the show that helps business leaders make sense of new technologies coming out of the lab and into the marketplace.

The Power and Pitfalls of Gamification


This Story is adapted from How to Change: The Science of Getting from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be by Katy Milkman. When you walk 10,000 steps in a day, your Fitbit rewards you with a jiggle and some virtual fireworks, giving you a reason to pause and smile with pride. When you practice a foreign language on Duolingo multiple days in a row, you earn a "streak" and are encouraged to maintain it, giving you an extra reason to strive for repetition. When companies, teachers, coaches, or apps add features such as symbolic rewards, competition, social connections, or even just fun sounds and colors to make something feel more like play, they're relying on "gamification" to enhance an experience that might otherwise be dull. I'd wager that most of the apps on your phone use some element of gamification, but we also see gamification in our workplaces and from our health insurers.

Google 'is hosting ads that charge for free services'

Google is hosting adverts for unofficial services like applying for a visa that charge vastly inflated amounts, a BBC investigation has revealed. The search engine returned ads for services charging £50 to change an address on a driving licence – something that can be done for free on the government's website.

Limited English Skills Can Mean Limited Access to the COVID-19 Vaccine

In California, non-English speakers handed COVID-19 vaccination cards without information on what they mean. In Pennsylvania, people who speak Mandarin, Korean, and Japanese unable to make vaccine appointments due to a lack of interpreters at hospital call centers. These are just a few of the examples captured in a new complaint filed on Friday to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Civil Rights, Federal Emergency Management Agency's Office of Equal Rights, and Department of Homeland Security's Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties.
