It uses this policy as the basis for banning individual accounts, discussion threads, and whole subreddits. Basically if you cross the line, you‘re gone.

This terrifying AI generates fake articles from any news site

The Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence has an interesting new tactic in the war on fake news: make more of it. A team of researchers at the institute recently developed Grover, a neural network capable of generating fake news articles in the style of actual human journalists. In essence, the group is fighting fire with fire because the better Grover gets at generating fakes, the better it‘ll be at detecting them. According to the i

98% of Bitcoin Satoshi Vision‘s activity comes from a dumb weather app

The majority of transactions running through the Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) network haven‘t anything to do with cryptocurrency. In fact, pretty much all of its current on-chainactivity comes from weathersv.com, an automated weather service that simply copies data from another (centralized) weather site and writes it to the BSV blockchain. What people fail to realize is a paid subscription service that copies data hourly from an existing w

This is how I stay productive when flying economy

It‘s not just you. For the past forty years, airline seats have shrunk to the point where some carriers offer just 28 inches of pitch defined as the distance from the back of your seat to the seat in front of you to economy passengers. If you‘re going on holiday, that‘s probably not that much of a problem, but what if you‘re traveling for work? This is a problem I run into regularly. Last year, I flew about 75 segments,

Obsessing over first-page load time sabotages ecommerce businesses

A flawed approach to page speed measurement is sabotaging ecommerce sites. There, I said it. Now I know this might be an exaggeration, but it really is time for a change. A historical focus on network-based metrics - bytes downloaded per page or assets per page, for example - and an excessive emphasis placed on first-page load times have meant the rest of the customer journey on the web has suffered. Developers and product managers have been rely

Watch out: Calbra.com isn‘t the same as Facebook‘s Calibra.com

Headlines have been saturated with news of Facebook‘s new ‘cryptocurrency,‘ called Libra, over the past week.
