If he thinks that's bad he should try MacOS

Yep, Mac OSes have gone steadily downhill since Snow Leopard, poorer reliability, endless bloatware that can't be deleted/disabled, unwanted/unavoidable 'features', and relentless attempts to lock users into Apple's system.
I never saw the attraction of the iPhone/iPad, so fortunately dodged the bullet there.
Probably going to be a Linux laptop next time, 25+ years of Macs.
As I believe they are basing the >1 gain on the energy delivered to the target. Rather than the total energy needed to actually generate the beams, which is far higher.
Net result, they used far more energy than that produced in the fusion reaction.
Good for fusion research, but it's not going to help with practical fusion power generation.
Do you know of someone on left that should be suspended/cancelled ? Or that should have their tweets removed..
We all know the right wingers that were removed or have their Tweets redacted/removed for spouting lies, hatred and inciting violence/insurrection
open its own bank accounts
figure out how to dodge/minimise taxation of its profits
negotiate licensing terms for its patents
sue for alleged violations, and win
set up and run manufacturing, distribution and sales
handle the hr issues
take over competitors
do charitable good, or fund demagogues
decide what else to spend its money on, perhaps amass a fine art collection, or a superyacht
it'll have shown it's enough of a person to hold a patent
otherwise it's just a piece of design/optimisation software created by humans, and has no more rights than a toaster
China is a totalitarian state, aside from subjugating its own population and putting developing nations on the hook financially to gain access/control of assets, it threatens to seize Taiwan by force, where a large proportion of chip production is based.
After years of allowing China free access to decimate other manufacturing industries, and steal IP from foreign companies to enable it to move from cheap tat to more sophisticated products, the last thing the we should do is sit back and help China on-shore high-end chip design/production, gaining the ability to take Taiwan, leaving the rest of the world in the position of China's way or no chips.
It was bad enough for much of europe to become reliant on Russia for oil/gas, the lesson is clear.
Let's stop pretending it's a good idea to help totalitarian scum develop their economies and capabilities.
The only patentable bit is the untrained HW/SW (except in jurisdictions where the abomination of SW patents is not valid).
Real world training data are not patentable, they are not an invention, nor is any resulting learned model used to configure the HW/SW, it's just a representation of the data produced by the manipulation of the patentable system.
The user(s) of the data potentially could own the copyright to the resulting model, but only assuming they had the copyright to the input data in the first place, i.e. permission from all person(s) or owner(s) of any property represented, if they don't have proven permission for every single piece of data, they can't copyright the result of combining that data.
That means no mass harvesting of photos/whatever from the interweb, surveillance cameras, patient records etc. and claiming ownership of the derivative work, if it was free data going in, the output is free for anyone to use as they wish.
Ah, so you supported the liars and traitors who stripped the rights of the British people, using a rigged and corrupt electoral system to put a liar in as PM with a massive majority whilst getting a minority of the vote.
Fact: at the last general election, more than 50% of votes went to parties advocating a second referendum or simply stopping brexit.
I.e, the brexiters' lies had unravelled, the will of the British people was to remain.
The UK would have been free to go it alone on vaccines within the EU.
Perhaps if the UK had been in the EU, it might even have led the way in getting a region-wide deal.
The UK death rate vs. typical EU is nothing to cheer about, was that because of brexit? The UK is now dragging its heels to approve vaccines that WHO, EU, others have approved, is that because of brexit?No, of course not.
Cherry-picking the good bits and conflating with brexit makes no sense, they are not causally related.
The job ad mentions "secondment" as a contract type.
Given the role, I'd suspect that candidates from the government's consultancy chums will be welcomed.
They'll still rake in their normal compensation while on secondment, the 50k will be handy to cover a few meals and a nice holiday, and it'll open up plenty of opportunity to sell-in additional services.
"Many fail to understand when IPv6 was designed. The first RFC is date December 1995 - meaning development started well before. The actual internet didn't exist then. [...]"
The Internet existed long before IPv6.
I was using the Internet back in the 1980s, and remember first experimenting with internal webstuff (text only) in the early 1990s.
