AI will create 'useless class' of human, predicts bestselling historian | Technology | The Guardian - 0 views

  •  
    "AIs do not need more intelligence than humans to transform the job market. They need only enough to do the task well. And that is not far off, Harari says. "Children alive today will face the consequences. Most of what people learn in school or in college will probably be irrelevant by the time they are 40 or 50. If they want to continue to have a job, and to understand the world, and be relevant to what is happening, people will have to reinvent themselves again and again, and faster and faster.""

How bad were Ofqual's grades - by Huy Duong - HEPI - 0 views

  •  
    "Therefore even Ofqual's best model significantly worsened grade accuracy for most A-level subjects when the cohort size is below 50, which is common (almost 62% of the total in 2019). For GCSEs, even with larger cohorts, the best model would have worsened the grade accuracy for Maths and Sciences. A very conservative figure of 25% of wrong grades would have amounted to 180,000 wrong A-level grades and 1.25 million wrong GCSE grades."

The Trump 2020 app is a voter surveillance tool of extraordinary power | MIT Technology Review - 0 views

  •  
    "Data collection-as Parscale's comment suggested-is perhaps the most powerful thing the Trump 2020 app does. On signing up, users are required to provide a phone number for a verification code, as well as their full name, email address, and zip code. They are also highly encouraged to share the app with their existing contacts. This is part of a campaign strategy for reaching the 40 to 50 million citizens expected to vote for Trump's reelection: to put it bluntly, the campaign says it intends to collect every single one of these voters' cell-phone numbers. This strategy means the app also makes extensive permission requests, asking for access to location data, phone identity, and control over the handset's Bluetooth function."

Jill Lepore: 'When did we hand Google, Twitter and Facebook the reins?' | Books | The Guardian - 0 views

  •  
    "If anything, I think in the 50s and 60s - because so few people had direct experience of computers - there was even more concern than there is now. Computers were associated with vast power. It was only with the arrival in the 1980s and 1990s of the personal computer we were sold the idea that the technology was participatory and liberal. I think we have returned, in a way, to the original fears, now we sense that these personal devices very much represent the power of vast corporations. "
