If they didn't use the SatNav, would this of still happened?
Yes, then it's not Google's fault.
No, then it's still not Google's fault.
I live in rural Shropshire and many, many roads are 60mph. On great deal of these, if you go above 20mph, you are riskng ending up in a ditch, a hedge or slamming into a car or tractor around the blind bend.
You drive to the conditions and the surroundings, end of.
If you are unfamiliar with the road and it's dark, slow the fuck down.
15 years ago I attended my Ex's masters graduation at one of the UK's top Universities.
I'd say 90% of all the maths and science graduates had names of Chinese origin.
Being part of the Russell's group, I'm pretty sure they were well funded overseas students, just not sure from where, but I'll take a good guess.
On a side shift, the justification that Adobe, MS (office) and a HUGE amount of industry software house charge so much, is they EXPECT you to be making money off it, so effectively you are paying the fees in advance.
Really it would be like saying if Photoshop was FREE, then they would want a cut.
.... probably in a very controlled and quiet lab.
Chuck in noise and different key layout (after all a iPhone keypad layout, is different to a Samsung, a Samsung different to Motorola, Motorola different to Huawei.Daves Huawei different to Bob's Huawei...and on and on. Throw in typos, corrections and autocomplete.
Add all this in your're going to be somewhere around 0%
""This is an outrageous example of censorship in open source software,""
You see, the "Freedom" you mob always champion works in both ways
You see, (usually right wing) people, don't get is that freedom also includes not accepting cash and choosing to work with, companies or people you disagree with.
This is not censorship, the same as if ComiCon decide to be sponsored by Smith & Weston, and all the cosplayers decide to boycott it.
"Something like 75-80% of vehicles in the UK are able to be parked off road at home (RAC figures I've quoted often here).."
I've no idea where the fuck the RAC got these figures but I call total bullshit on them. Maybe in suburbia, but go to ANY post industrial revolution town, especially Victorian era town or villages and that figure is, way, way off.
In my large village for example, and old mining area, I'd estimate 75 -80% of parking is on street. Just go round the central areas of Birmingham, the Black Country, or in most industrial northern towns, you'll see it repeated over and over.
But I guess I can sling a cable out of the window, through the small from yard, across the road, around the corner and eventually reach my car.
Learn to code!
Or does that only apply when the elites destroy blue collar jobs.
Odd seen so many bitching about AI coding on here
Give it 5-10 years and that'll be mostly obsolete.
Desk jobs are amongst the easiest to replace. Why employ 25 coders when you can get AI to do most of the work and just the odd person to check and ammend.
+1 for Cautionary Tales.
As he pointed out (backed by academic research), that it took over 100 years for average people to actually benefit from the Industrial Revolution.
Ignorant people go "it bought great benefits for humanity", ignoring the mass population were forced to live in slum housing, life expectancy DROPPED, horrific injuries were common place (think young girls getting their scalps ripped off as they crawled under looms, or people dying of chronic lung disease in their early 20s, due to toxic fumes).
The people that always benefit from massive change are the rich and powerful.
This prices will be for human transcriptions and, in theory, should be 100% accurate.
You only have to watch something on Netflix with subtitles on (English / English) to see how terrible auto transcripts can be, and image how bad it gets when you have several people talking and even worse if they end up constantly over talking each other.
She was using Arm in the URL...yeah could get away with that quite easily but.
She was ALSO using the logos and other things to give the impression it was associated with Arm.
If I set up a website called Amazonsales.com, stuffed full of Amazon logos and sold stuff, I'd expect them to come down on me
...one of the uses of "AI" is replacing call centre staff (it's already happening in India).
So maybe a bit of self interest perhaps? Never saw him complaining about the loss of jobs when they were going their way.
On a serious note, it is a real issue. I'm fine, my job cannot be replaced, but so many can, and as the last massive labour shift (the industrial revolution) took around a hundred years or so for the benefits to filter down to the plebs, laws not on job protection (because it'll happen regardless), but on how to support those that lose their jobs, should be thought of.
