  • Facebook could face lawsuit over illegal user data collection

    first_imgSan Francisco: A US court here has ruled that Facebook users from Illinois state can go ahead with a class action lawsuit against social media giant Facebook over alleged illegal collection of user data without their consent. US non-profit group, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), quoted a court document as saying that the Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco gave a green light to the Illinois users to sue Facebook over privacy breach by using the technology of facial recognition, Xinhua news agency reported on Thursday. Also Read – Swiggy now in 500 Indian cities, targets 100 more this year Judge Sandra Ikuta said in the ruling that Illinois users can bring a class action lawsuit against Facebook, whose facial recognition software “invades an individual’s private affairs and concrete interests”. The Circuit Court rejected a Facebook appeal to block the class action lawsuit by the Facebook users who accused the US media company of storing biometric data for millions of users without their consent. “Facebook’s facial recognition technology violated Illinois’s Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA),” said the court document. Also Read – New HP Pavilion x360 notebook with in-built Alexa in India “Violations of the procedures in BIPA actually harmed or posed a material risk of harm to those privacy interests,” it added. BIPA provides for $1,000 dollars for each negligent violation and $5,000 for each intentional or reckless violation. The ACLU hailed the court decision as the first one by a US appellate court to directly address privacy concerns caused by facial recognition technology. The lawsuit could make Facebook face billions of dollars in potential damages if it eventually loses the legal battle.last_img read more

  • March Madness Crib Notes For Sundays Games

    West RegionalIN BRIEFGame to watch: No. 1 Wisconsin vs. No. 8 Oregon (87.3) at 7:45 p.m. EDT on TruTVIN DEPTHWisconsin (87 percent) vs. OregonPlayer to watch: Frank Kaminsky, WisconsinOregon’s offense — far and away the strength of the team — came to the rescue against Oklahoma State in the round of 64 as the Ducks shot 55 percent from the floor to outgun the Cowboys in a 79-73 win. But securing enough stops to beat Wisconsin might be a struggle for the defensively challenged Ducks. According to Ken Pomeroy’s ratings, Wisconsin easily owns the best offense in the country, a unit primed to take advantage of Oregon’s weak shot defense and inability to force turnovers. The Ducks also lack the risky traits that sometimes help heavy underdogs chance their way into upsets. But one path the Ducks might navigate to victory is to force the tempo and make the Badgers play at their pace. Oregon had the 33rd-fastest offense in the country this season (as measured by seconds per possession), while Wisconsin had the third-slowest. While Saturday’s top-billed matchups (specifically, Arizona-Ohio State and Kentucky-Cincinnati) looked sexier on paper than any in store on Sunday, day No. 2 of the round of 32 offers some solid games of its own — as well as fewer sleepers. Keep a particular eye on the trio of 2-versus-7 matchups, each of which should be reasonably competitive by the standards of this round.Here’s what else to look for:South RegionalGame to watch: No. 1 Duke vs. No. 8 San Diego State (a harmonic mean of 88.0) at 2:40 p.m. EDT on CBSUpset alert! No. 7 Iowa (27 percent win probability) vs. No. 2 Gonzaga at 7:10 p.m. EDT on TBSIN DEPTHDuke (85 percent win probability) vs. San Diego StatePlayer to watch: Jahlil Okafor, DukeAfter taking care of Robert Morris with ease in its opener, Duke moves on to face the slow-paced, defensively focused Aztecs. San Diego State has a tall team that ranks among the nation’s best at limiting opponents’ shooting efficiency and keeping them from getting to the line. But watch for Duke’s offensive rebounding (spearheaded by All-Everything center Jahlil Okafor) to offset some of SDSU’s defensive advantage. And when the Aztecs have the ball, scoring might be an ordeal. Neither of San Diego State’s two go-to guys on offense — Winston Shepard and Dwayne Polee — could even match the Division I average for efficiency when they ended an Aztec possession, a trend that figures to continue against a solid Blue Devils defense. East RegionalIN BRIEFGame to watch: No. 2 Virginia vs. No. 7 Michigan State (89.5) at 12:10 p.m. EDT on CBSUpset alert! No. 5 Northern Iowa (55 percent) vs. No. 4 Louisville at 9:40 p.m. EDT on TBSIN DEPTHVirginia (72 percent) vs. Michigan StatePlayer to watch: Anthony Gill, VirginiaVirginia didn’t exactly look dominant against a stubborn Belmont team Friday, and now the Cavaliers must face an even tougher opponent in Michigan State. The Spartans have the talent to stick with Virginia — they’d have a 37 percent chance of the upset here if we based our prediction on preseason ratings alone — and their coach is familiar with deep tournament runs. Plus, Virginia operates its offense at a veritable crawl, slowing down the game and inviting the kind of variance that can prove deadly for a favorite. But other than their snail-like pace, the Cavaliers play a sturdy style as upset-proof as any, relying primarily on two-point shooting, ball security, rebounding, and an old-fashioned big, tough interior defense. It all makes for a team with few clear weaknesses, something Michigan State will likely learn the hard way.Check out FiveThirtyEight’s March Madness predictions. Midwest RegionalIN BRIEFGame to watch: No. 2 Kansas vs. No. 7 Wichita State (87.6) at 5:15 p.m. EDT on CBSUpset alert! No. 5 West Virginia (55 percent) vs. No. 4 Maryland at 8:40 p.m. EDT on TNTIN DEPTHKansas (57 percent) vs. Wichita StatePlayer to watch: Fred VanVleet, Wichita StateWichita State’s offense clicked in the second half of its victory over Indiana on Friday, but the points may not come as easily against a strong Kansas defense that ranks ninth nationally in Ken Pomeroy’s schedule-adjusted ratings. The game may come down to whether Wichita State can execute its pick-and-roll — according to Synergy Sports, the Shockers’ pick-and-roll ball-handling efficiency ranked in the 93rd percentile of Division I schools; the Jayhawks’ defense was in the 85th percentile at stopping the play. At the other end, it’s worth watching whether the more interior-focused Kansas offense can adapt to take advantage of a Wichita State defense that dares opponents to move the ball around and shoot from the outside. read more

  • Penton Launches Chief Marketer Network

    first_imgAccording to American Business Media’s Business Information Network, the Business, Advertising & Marketing category is down about a quarter of a percent to $537.7 million in ad revenue for the first nine months of 2008, which actually compares relatively favorably to other b-to-b categories such as automotive, which plunged 14.7 percent to $350.9 million in the same period. Penton Media has announced the Chief Marketer Network, a site that will pool edit content from its marketing titles—Direct, Promo, Multichannel Merchant and Chief Marketer. Leslie Bacon will serve as group publisher of the network. While the individual magazines and their companion Web sites will remain, the Chief Marketer site will serve as an umbrella for the group. All editors will contribute to “The Big Fat Marketing Blog,” which runs across the network. “The individual brands stand alone for those companies that want to reach that particular target audience,” Bacon told FOLIO:. “We do have advertisers that want to reach multiple markets that we serve. Now we can more easily provide them with a cross market/website/network buy due to the synergies across the four Web sites. Although each site has unique content, the online products have been standardized (where appropriate) to make it easier for the advertiser to add reach/audience to their program.”The Penton marketing titles have been recast before. In 2006, as part of Prism Business Media, Promo, Direct, Multichannel Merchant and Chief Marketer were put in a group called Prism Marketing Media Strategies, led by editorial director Ray Schultz. last_img read more

  • Bionic Eye Shows Promise for People With AgeRelated Vision Loss

    first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. The realities of aging can be hard to face. Muscles weaken, it can become difficult to remember things and the body loses some of its function — one being fading sight. Now, however, there’s hope to mitigate some of the damage done by a diminishing field of vision.The Argus II system, which has been referred to as a bionic eye — the same one used to help patients with the degenerative disease retinitis pigmentosa — has shown promise for people with advanced dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a condition that affects 20 to 25 million people globally, according to UN estimates. Although the Argus II has helped more than 100 people with retinitis pigmentosa to regain some semblance of vision, Ryan Flynn is the first person to use the technology to mitigate the effects of AMD.Related: Imagine If Our Highways Were Paved in PlasticFlynn, an 80-year-old man from Manchester, England, was an avid gardener and enjoyed watching Manchester United play soccer (or football, as it’s called across the pond) before dry AMD took his central vision (wet AMD also exists). Though he can still see things peripherally, his sight has been deteriorating for nearly a decade.  He underwent a four-hour procedure at Manchester Royal Eye Hospital last month to place a receiver on his retina. When he wears glasses fit with a small video camera, the camera feeds images to the receiver. He’s now able to see outlines of people and objects, RTE reports. He told the BBC that he was “delighted” with the implant.As part of a clinical trial, the hospital will implant electrodes in four other individuals with dry AMD. The patients in the trial will receive the Argus II system for free, though it usually costs $145,000 — not including the cost of the operation or doctors’ fees.  The technology was invented by Dr. Robert Greenberg, CEO of Second Sight.To see how the Argus II works, check out the video below.Related: Samsung Wants to Measure Body Fat With a Smartphone SqueezeCorrection: An earlier version of this article misnamed the device.
