Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Europe has strong and clear-cut data protection laws that require explicit consent and limit the data that may be kept on a person to that needed. If Uber sell or aggregate data without good cause in the EU they'll be digging their own grave.
When some inexperienced Linux user has to edit some file in some form of Linux and there is no gui available, I point them to nano, because it behaves pretty closely to what they expect from a text editor (which tends to be something like notepad...sigh).
By which you mean it behaves in a relatively straightforward, least surprising way.
This is not what big data is, this is just selling customers' information. And Google, despite being listed in the summary, never does it BTW.
No, and not for reasons for privacy either. They're simply holding onto it because it's more valuable for them to do so - for similar reasons that casinos and supermarket loyalty schemes might - to mine and profit from the information, layer services on top of it and deny that info to competitors.
If someone produce an uber simple semantic language - just plain text - that could be tossed into a page or link and utilised with some popular js library then maybe it might gain traction, particularly if it was a micro dsl for highly specific jobs (e.g. stock quotes). Or if an organisation maintained an enormous repository of documents that had to be categorized and linked in a way for people find them. But beyond that, forget it. And you might as well be pissing into the wind to think anyone would willingly use RDF.
It's still incredibly time consuming and potentially people might notice the watermark and generate a lot of bad publicity. I suspect Pixar would just hope that users would pay for the commercial licence if they were making enough money to be able to afford one. $500 isn't a huge amount.
Microsoft is their own worst enemy. They're trying to break into mobile apps and this is now their THIRD set of APIs for doing it. This amount of churn is extremely annoying and frustrating for devs. At least when Google produces new Android APIs they tend to be incremental and where necessary they'll even backport them.
2. So you have evidence that a self drive car can determine intent? Oops no.
3. Superior sensing? I get it now - You're a fucking idiot.
