How to Quickly Get to the Important Truth Inside Any Privacy Policy

An investigative data journalist and a former tech lawyer teach you how to spot tricks and hidden disclosures within these interminable documents—and even how to claw back some privacy By: Jon Keegan and Jesse Woo Privacy policies are horrible. They are too long, impenetrable, and full of legalese that amounts to a take it or leave it offer. But the privacy policy is one of the only places where tech companies have to tell us the truth—the truth about what personal data they are collecting, how they share and profit from that data, and at a deeper level, what sort of trade we’re making when we choose to use their apps or platforms.  They follow a predictable structure, meaning you can learn to navigate them, spotting key sections and passages from a safe skimming height, swooping down only to extract the juiciest morsels of information or to leverage an opportunity to opt out of certain collection (or to opt in to deeper, more personalized disclosure).  We can teach you ho

what GPT-4 can do and how it will change the way people work

Introduced by OpenAI in 2020, the GPT-3 text generator has become one of the most talked about technologies in the field of artificial intelligence (AI). The system is based on the principle of a language model: an algorithm trained on a huge array of texts (from literary classics to posts on social networks) determines which words are in what sequence in a sentence and creates an original text.  In 2022, OpenAI launched the ChatGPT chatbot based on GPT-3.5. It has been called the "Google killer" and has received a lot of criticism for the fact that the algorithm generates good-sounding text, but is not able to analyze it well.   Finally, on March 15, a new generation of the algorithm, GPT-4, was released. According to OpenAI, the neural network surpasses its previous version by 40% in information reliability, and its propensity for prohibited content is reduced by 82%: the model was taught ethics and value guidelines for six months.   Microsoft has stated that their Bing b

what really makes us happy might surprise you

Work-life balance: what really makes us happy might surprise you Black Salmon/Shutterstock Lis Ku , De Montfort University Finding the right work-life balance is by no means a new issue in our society. But the tension between the two has been heightened by the pandemic, with workers increasingly dwelling over the nature of their work , its meaning and purpose , and how these affect their quality of life . You can listen to more articles from The Conversation, narrated by Noa, here . Studies suggest people are leaving or planning to leave their employers in record numbers in 2021 – a “ great resignation ” that appears to have been precipitated by these reflections. But if we’re all reconsidering where and how work slots into our lives, what should we be aiming at? It’s easy to believe that if only we didn’t need to work, or we could work far fewer hours, we’d be happier, living a life of hedonic experiences in all their healthy and unheal

Why social media is a risk to humanity.

 How little we know about the dangers. We can discover, “Like,” click on, and share information faster than ever before, guided by algorithms most of us don’t quite understand. Some social scientists, journalists, and activists have been raising concerns about how this is affecting our democracy, mental health, and relationships, we haven’t seen biologists and ecologists weighing in as much. That’s changed with a new paper published in the prestigious science journal PNAS earlier this month, titled “ Stewardship of global collective behavior. ” Seventeen researchers who specialize in widely different fields, from climate science to philosophy, make the case that academics should treat the study of technology’s large-scale impact on society as a “ crisis discipline .” The authors warn that if left misunderstood and unchecked, we could see unintended consequences of new technology contributing to phenomena such as “election tampering, disease, violent extremism, famine, racism
