Israeli Company Mobileye Developing Driverless Cars | Technology News - 0 views

  •  
    ""The technology is also useful in cases where the driver loses consciousness and has let go of the steering wheel. If such an event occurs, the car will independently pull over. Temporary control of the car is the second wave of driver perception-enhancement - while we are still on the first wave, which culminates with the car's ability to break on its own in case of emergency. Therefore, the next phase is automated driving, the instant you let go of the wheel.""

The Wikipedia War Over Kamala Harris's Race - The Atlantic - 0 views

  •  
    "Zvikorn, whose bio on the site describes an Israeli teen into sports history, has made more than 2,300 edits to Wikipedia articles over the past few years. "The main reason I edit Wikipedia is a strong belief that every person on the planet has the right to access the accumulated knowledge of humanity," he wrote. "Today it is only getting more important for mankind to find out the truth and not be exposed to believe fake news." But after his breaking-news edit, Kamala Harris's page on "the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit" quickly became a battleground-first over a sexist slur and then over racial identity-offering a grim preview of the attacks Harris is already facing as the presumptive Democratic nominee for vice president."

Experts warn of new spyware threat targeting journalists and political figures | Hackin... - 0 views

  •  
    "Researchers at the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto's Munk School said the spyware, which is made by an Israeli company called QuaDream, infected some victims' phones by sending an iCloud calendar invitation to mobile users from operators of the spyware, who are likely to be government clients. Victims were not notified of the calendar invitations because they were sent for events logged in the past, making them invisible to the targets of the hacking. Such attacks are known as "zero-click" because users of the mobile phone do not have to click on any malicious link or take any action in order to be infected."

How to Lead an Army of Digital Sleuths in the Age of AI | WIRED - 0 views

  • Yeah, and a lot of the stuff we find is actually from Israeli soldiers who’re misbehaving and doing stuff that I would say are definitely violations of international laws.
