If you're going to go for it you want to go with #1.
Depends if you consider Putins Russia to be an enemy of the US, does it not?
I think it would come under "incitement." But then him and "Dobby" do seem to see eye to eye on many things.
Personally I'd rather like Donald (or "The D" as I like to think of him, since so many of his supports just can't seem to get enough of him) to win.
Like Brexit for the British.
But without it being so completely impossible to reverse.
Isn't that a town in Vermont somewhere?
Sabotage is rarely the answer.
Clumsy sabotage is just bungling on a large scale.
And naturally to have been completely guilty while coming up clean on the machine.
"I wonder if the other Ned Kelly is turning in his grave."
Strewth, mate I reckon he'd be choked it was that easy.
Given the UK was regularly slated as having the weakest data protection laws in Europe I think anyone else in Europe would be thinking about re-locating any UK data centres somewhere else.
The joker would be any US businesses with UK data centres but I think most of the Googles, Amazons and Apples opted for Ireland, so BAU for them.
So the US can slurp UK data without any problem from PM May.
Brexit is the gift that just keeps on giving.
On a robot ship
or robot anything in fact.
We can't grossly violate your privacy without your assistance.
At least that's what the managers want it to be.
As for the staff who are expected to use it....
Who cares what they think? How would they know what is needed?
and worst of all..
If they do know what's needed WTF should they tell their managers, who treat them with contempt?
Isn't that exactly what DRIPA is designed to circumvent.
In normal world low risk == low profit margin but in BT land low risk== high margin?
Think of BT like the Treasury when they owned things like British Steel and the British Rail.
Any profit you make we keep. We may reinvest in you, if nothing more important shows up.
Those decisions are no longer the Treasury's to make, but they are BT Groups to make.
The nearest model would be Railtrack (or whatever it's called now) combined with Lessons Learned from their relations with the companies who used their infrastructure regarding scheduling repair and maintenance.
I'm not sure there's one on Congresspeople.
Presumably on the theory that somehow "age" == "wisdom."
One made the century as a Senator from some Southern state.
I think he's the reason when film makers want to depict a crooked senior politician (Brian Cox seems a popular choice for such tasks) they give him a Southern accent.
For support services, IE running laundry and canteens.
Said staffer goes to work for Haliburton later.
When this happened was anyone else thinking "Is this a disturbing new trend. Old politician gets "trophy" VP?"
They're not a monopoly, they're just better at making stuff than their competitors
Oh, there isn't really a "Chinese wall" between app and OS developers? Well so what
Charge for every PC sold, regardless of wheather a MS OS was on it. Well that seems fair.
That last seems to be a Google specialty, Individual components appear harmless but working together to trap pretty much anyone into making their take other products and paying them.
This is not a new phenomenon. Tom Watson Jr went to jail for monopolist practices while at NCR. When he got involved with IBM he never saw the inside of another jail.
That was in the 1910's.
If I only knew what "hyper-converged Data Platform product" actually meant.
Of course the classic issue is the UK fondness for amateur managers.
You can f**k up any good idea with bad enough management.
A subject the UK seems to manage very well indeed.
Sorry didn't read the whole article.
Google subscription required --> f**k right off in my book.
It's a cabal of senior civil servants who believe access to more data is always better data and access to all data (forever) is best of all. It has nothing to do with "security" "money laundering" or paedophiles.
It has every thing to do power. the ability to find out at will what anyone, anytime has done online throughout their life.
It is Cardinal Richelieu line about "Give me 6 lines from an honest man and I'll find something with which to hang him."
Then he might have asked the assorted data fetishists in her department WTF their problem is.
I think you'll find he was against ID cards and the various incarnations of the Snoopers Charter.
Because they can.
Same reason as any bit of psychopathic corporate behavior, even when the organization is not being run by one.
But it's been very hand that it does (for Google) has it not?
But that's really hard. :(
Personally I'd like to start by English language parsing of the description because if the parse fails due to ambiguity it means the user does not understand their problem well enough in the first place.
Incidentally deterministic parsing of English is possible and has been so for the last 30 odd years. Search "parsifal" for an example, while a PhD at Edingburgh demonstrated that a 2 word lookahead and evaluation stack was adequate to get the job done.
I don't have the time to wade through the full 16 pages that AI reports usually run that seems to be the core of it.
The big thing seems to be that they demonstrate that you can do everything in the UI that you can do raw SQL in terms of logic and set manipulation.
IOW it's the MS Access SQL wizard done completely instead a bodge job of the most common tasks. :(
And note this is all about questioning a DB.
It has nothing to do with structuring data within one, or paraphrasing the query so it asks what you think it asked.A classic case would be the library query "Give me everything by Smith and Jones," which most people would actually want as author = Smith || Jones ||Smith && Jones.
Underwhelmed in every way, despite the epic amount of grunt work this probably took to get working.
Now any nation can play "disrupt your (potential) enemies infrastructure"
Wonder if this happens to Merkins wheather they'll declare war on the source?
The precedent is Iran, and they did not.
Could America manage to behave as well?
Hijacking real share trades and effectively "taxing" the real buyers.
Relocating to Frankfurt should kill the time advantage HFT's needed to pull off their scam.
If Frankfurt refuses to allow co-location of course.
IIRC there are 2 amino acid codes that have only 1 codon pattern.
Mutate one of those codons and you are guaranteed to make a new amino acid.
"in black turtlenecks, have her enroll in a fancy school to drop out of, can she also get billions of dollars in funding by holding a press conference?"
You forgot the near psychopathic levels of self confidence in herself she'll need, coupled with the utter lack of self doubt.
And of course she'll have to be comfortable blaming everyone but herself when it all goes t***sideways.
Oh sweet $deity no. SFU now.
You start saying things like that and next week BAe will be giving a presentation to their friends in the MoD.
All science is done with numbers, not opinions, as well.
A very depressing demonstration of real human nature (not the sort fMRI claimed to show) at work.
I thought they'd wait till they ran out of road on linewidth.
WTF are they?
What is their remit?
Who's on this?
NHS. DWP? HMRC? GCHQ?
I smell a very large rat, and it's growing.
Funny how that works.
They risk a slapped wrist for pulling someone's life history
You are guaranteed to have your life history spewed out of the all the computer systems they have access to.
That's your idea of "balanced" ?
Doesn't sound too balanced to me.
Yes that did put me in mind of The Climate "Research" Unit and the harryreadme file.
I've heard people comment that functional MRI has been used by drinks companies to identify brain activation and response to various drinks. Yes that really is your brain on Coke.
That research has been very quietly done and is obviously worth billions in a global market.
"Know your tools" is a good moto but of course with tools this complex there is a reason for "we have to trust the developers knew what they were doing."
This looks like the situation in CFD,but without the approach. In that field no software (or new major release) gets accepted without multiple test runs amongst known test cases (many from live wind tunnel tests). First they test, then they trust.
BTW doing it with dead samples brought up the interesting factoid that about 500 genes were firing after death, presumably as part of the organisms last ditch attempts to self heal.
Only one thing to say to that.
So Priti vacant then ?
Plus I'm loving the "Double Brutus" nick name.
I think "Double B" sounds appropriately gangster, don't you? Let's be honest the Tory party love someone with demonstrated ruthlessness, who's not afraid to
stab a friend in the back make the hard choices.
Meanwhile the lurking Boris bides his time before getting ready to pounce like a giant floppy haired bear....
Not this is an orbit around a non-uniform (but shallow) gravity well.
Which is a pretty incredible concept.
I trust the data haul will be every bit as productive as ESA hope.
Farewell Roseta, you have served us well. :( .
Sounds like a pretty good tactical choice for Hilary.
Clause 50 has to be invoked.
This has not been done yet.
Gove or "Double Brutus" as he's been called over his "support" for call-me-Dave then signing up as Boris's "Campaign Manager" has been getting a lot of love from both Rupert and Dacre, or as we like to think of him, the husband of the owner of the Daily Heil.
Ladies and gentlemen, time to grease those cheeks and grab those ankles.
This is going to hurt.
The technical term for your relatives is "played"
Because they have been.
Nothing changes for at least 2 years and this "taking back control" bo***cks leave banged on about is more BS.
You know how remain said the Australian style points system could increase the number of EU migrants?
Guess what. It could.
BTW I'm guessing at least a few of your relatives have private pensions. Props to them for taking the £74Bn hit on the share prices most of them are held in.
Unchecked assertions ?
Used by people with murky affliations?
People put on list due to personal malice?
Maintained by some sort of quasi private company with links to government departments?
Yea. Let's here for the return of uncheckable, unanswerable black lists.
But it's more difficult if you don't run paper only than it used to be.
A data fetishist will use any crime to call for more snooping powers and less oversight regardless of the human tragedy or any signs it would not have made a blind bit of difference.
The real drivers for this are twofold.
1) Because we can. The cost of data storage and voice and text analysis is low enough the hard ware can do it and we (the data fetishists) want to. More data is always better data because of
2) In the words of Cardinal Richelieu "Give me 6 lines from an honest man and I'll find something with which to hang him."
These powers give those who want them so many more lines to read, and hence "crimes" to charge people with.
Perhaps it's the £74Bn wiped off the FTSE that's stayed wiped off the FTSE (early stages it was about £120Bn) and the number of UK private pension owners who've just seen their pension pot shrink quite a lot. For the second time in 10 years. Maybe it won't take another 5 years to climb back, like it did last time.
Perhaps the Leave campaign expected that to happen and it was an "acceptable" loss. It think quite a few people would disagree on that.
Or maybe it's the £/$ exchange rate dropping to the worst value in 30 years? Still not to worry that'll attract more Americans, right?
Or the prospect set out by Leave supporting economist Patrick Minford that Britain will lose all mfg as it will no longer be "protected" by the EU. But he seemed to think the loss of about 2m jobs a price well worth paying as the UK will move (wholesale) into "Marketing" and "Design."
Hilariously the people who's jobs will be disappearing agreed with him, since a lot of them also voted to leave.
It looks like the British working class has managed to do something even Margaret Thatcher could not do.
Completely destroy itself.
But hay at least you've "Taken back control" as the Leave side banged on about over (and over, and over) again about in the TV debate.
Except, oh look, it seems you won't be.
No. that's not Fear Uncertainty and Doubt. That's Fact, Probability and Certainty.
Welcome to the future.
