So much data, so little time: How to not flip your wig processing it

Numbers war: How Bayesian vs frequentist statistics influence AI

IamStillIan

Re: "How can you possibly do statistics on a guess!?"

Nest leaves competition in the dust with new smart camera

IamStillIan

"If you already have a Nest device set up in your house, the new camera won't require you to enter any login or Wi-Fi password details, but will grab the information through your existing account."

IamStillIan

Re: Compliant?

It's a wider process thing, you can't just buy a bit of "compliant" software for it anyway. That doesn't, of course, mean you can't market a bit of "compliant" software for it.

How their GDPR ignorance could protect you from your denial

IamStillIan

Re: Purging convictions

I believe the view is that it's their data, and you're not entitled to hold it.

Even if you aren't using it, you're still exposing them to risk as it could be disclosed, mistakenly used etc.
