Peter Strzok, key figure in Russia probe, sues FBI, DOJ over firing | 06 Aug 2019 | Peter Strzok, the former FBI agent who came under fire for sending disparaging text messages about President Trump and other political figures during the 2016 presidential race [and then was (insanely) brought on as a member of the team investigating the person he disparaged], is suing his former employer over his firing, claiming the decision was a result of "unrelenting pressure" from Trump. In a lawsuit filed on Tuesday against the FBI and Justice Department, Strzok's counsel argued that his firing was politically motivated and in violation of two constitutional amendments. In particular, they argued that he was fired for using his protected political speech under the First Amendment and that the FBI also "deprived" him of his due process under the Fifth Amendment by denying him the right to appeal the decision.

Facebook Denies Shadow Banning, Receives Patent for Shadow Banning

Facebook Denies Shadow Banning, Receives Patent for Shadow Banning | 01 Aug 2019 | Facebook has continually denied that it participates in the practice of shadow banning -- a method of blocking a users' posts or comments from everyone except the user who made the post or comment. But a newly granted patent shows that Facebook not only does practice shadow banning, but wants to protect -- by patent -- the method it uses for doing so. Despite the fact that Facebook executives denied the practice in congressional testimony in April, the company was awarded a patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) earlier this month for an automated system that would "receive a list of proscribed content and block comments containing the proscribed content by reducing the distribution of those comments to other viewing users" while continuing to "display the blocked content to the commenting user such that the commenting user is not made aware that his or her comment was blocked." A better definition of shadow banning would be hard to write.

Robot racism? Yes, says a study showing humans' biases extend to robots

Robot racism? Yes, says a study showing humans' biases extend to robots | 01 Aug 2019 | Have you ever noticed the popularity of white robots? You see them in films like Will Smith's "I, Robot" and Eve from "Wall-E." Real-life examples include Honda's Asimo, UBTECH's Walker, Boston Dynamics' Atlas, and even NASA's Valkyrie robot. All made of shiny white material. And some real-life humanoid robots are modeled after white celebrities...The reason for these shades of technological white may be racism, according to new research. "Robots And Racism," a study conducted by the Human Interface Technology Laboratory in New Zealand (HIT Lab NZ) and published by the country's University of Canterbury, suggests people perceive physically human-like robots to have a race and therefore apply racial stereotypes to white and black robots. [Just open fire on any and all job-stealing robots. Problem solved!]
