Nobody is suing nobody. Microsoft released Research Kernel (redacted Server 2003 kernel) to academia in 2004-2005 as part of Windows-based OS course curriculum. The universities signing up for this OS course agreed not to publish the code on outside and to use it solely for teaching and experimenting purposes. Nonetheless the code almost immediately appeared within public reach.
Did Microsoft sue the universities for breach of contract? No.
Was Microsoft so stupid not to anticipate it would happen? No.
I haven't seen ReactOS code, but I have seen Research Kernel code. Believe me, it is easily recognizable, so Rietschin is most probably right.
People go on the social media to socialize, meaning blabber things about themselves, their relatives, friends and acquaintances. What privacy are we talking about when the central function of social media is publication and dissemination of private (sometimes false) information? You can make a social media platform distributed, open-sourced, whatever. The implementation details. Its central function will still be the same.
People who value their privacy simply don't post anything on social media. Don't look for privacy where it can't be found by definition.
I don't quite understand how the problem of unrepresentative learning data sets (which leads to AI systems discriminating by race, gender, etc.) became a problem of "The workforces of Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon, and Apple lack women, people of color, and people with disabilities, relatively speaking."
Adding women and people of color to AI development won't resolve the problem of unrepresentative learning data sets, because I don't think AI developers are so stupid they train their AI systems exclusively on their own faces and voices.
I have nothing against women and people of color, I just fail to see logical connection between two problems.
The article says nothing about the alleged victims having Huawei equipment in their networks. Do you have such info? Please share (if you are not under NDA, of course).
If this case isn't another bloomberg, it is another reminder to all concerned not to put anything of any value in the cloud.
Ghengis Khan taking the St.Petersburg? That's news worthy disseminating!
FYI:(1) Ghengis Khan never invaded Russia, his descendants (Batu et al.) did.
(2)Tartar-Monghol rule in Russia ended in late 14th century (1380), at the battle of Kulikovo field, where the forces of Dmitry Donskoy defeated forces of Mamai.
(3) St.Petersburg was founded by Tzar Peter I The Great in 1703.
Jeez, man, go learn some history before coming back!
