At least it was bolted on, so no Boeing involved

"Next, it verifies the person pictured on the identification card is the same person standing at the TSA podium, while also verifying the person is, in fact, traveling in the next 24 hours, and whether they have PreCheck, regular screening status, or are on a list to receive additional screening, Langston said."
None of which require facial recognition technology.
I'll wager that most of these gains and losses are sampling fluctuations, not meaningful changes. Much the same as the hapless ventilating over miniscule changes in polls over political campaigns.
Do they really expect this sort of rollout babble to convince my mother to upgrade?
"On November 30, 2022, an out-of-band update was released to improve the Windows 10, version 2004, 20H2, 21H1, 21H2, and 22H2 out-of-box experience (OOBE). It provides eligible devices with the option to upgrade to Windows 11 as part of the OOBE process. This update will be available only when an OOBE update is installed."
The description here, which is straight out of the press release, does a poor job representing the study. What they did is to take skin-derived fibroblasts from Parkinson patients with one of two very specific gene mutations. They then grew them up in a dish and trained a neural net to tell the difference from microscopy images. So the take away is that a) it's detecting influence/presence of a mutation not Parkinsons - in skin cells, it's not even in brain cells; b) while interesting it will never be used clinically - 79% accuracy is not useful for screening given the false positives. Also, with only 91 samples using internal cross-validation (no external validation data) the model is likely overfit.
Zuckerberg wants to create a make-believe world in which you can hide from all the damage Facebook has done
Nothing says 'We believe in you' like NASA switching two 'nauts off Boeing's Starliner onto SpaceX's Crew Dragon
Spot the dog? No, we couldn't either because Spot is a robot employed by United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority
I remember back in the 80s as a 6th Form student doing a summer job at Marchwood Engineering Labs. Some of the 1st year university student interns were working on software for a robot to decommission nuclear stations. Occasionally it would have whoops moments where it rotated the opposite direction from expected to reach a position. I on the other hand was merely allowed to rewrite the database software in Clipper for how to weld the stations together. Those were the days....
