Woody Allen: I should be the poster face for #MeToo movement

  Woody Allen: I should be the poster face for #MeToo movement Woody Allen says he should be the face of the #MeToo movement in terms of what to do right. In an interview that was broadcast Sunday night, Allen said he's a "big advocate" of #MeToo, and once again denied allegations that he molested Dylan Farrow, his adopted daughter."It's funny, I should be the poster boy for the #Metoo movement because I've worked in movies for 50 years, I've worked with hundreds of actresses...and not a single one, big ones, famous ones, have ever, ever, suggested any kind of impropriety at all," he told Argentine journalist Jorge Lanata in New York.

You don't need exotic radar, infrared or elaborate mesh networks to spot people through walls -- all you need are some easily detectable wireless signals and a dash of AI . From there, the AI could use wireless alone to estimate someone's movements and represent them using stick figures.

You don't need exotic radar, infrared or elaborate mesh networks to spot people through walls -- all you need are some easily detectable wireless signals and a dash of AI. Researchers at MIT CSAIL have developed a system (RF-Pose) that uses a neural network to teach RF-equipped devices to sense people's movement and postures behind obstacles. The team trained their AI to recognize human motion in RF by showing it examples of both on-camera movement and signals reflected from people's bodies, helping it understand how the reflections correlate to a given posture. From there, the AI could use wireless alone to estimate someone's movements and represent them using stick figures.

Do wireless customers have a right to paper bills? Telus's Koodo says no

  Do wireless customers have a right to paper bills? Telus's Koodo says no Do wireless customers have a right to paper bills? Telus's Koodo says no "It was really not nice," said 77-year-old Janette Little-Gallian, who requires a cellphone so she can text her 83-year-old deaf cousin. Little-Gallian says she has always received her Koodo bill in the mail because she is uncomfortable with electronic billing.

Unfortunately, this announcement highlighted the issues caused by Sony's refusal to allow console crossplay from the PS4 -- if you've linked an Epic account with PSN, it can't be used on Nintendo's system at all. Google improves Translate with offline AI .

The scientists mainly see their invention as useful for health care, where it could be used to track the development of diseases like multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's. It could also help some elderly people stay in their own homes by sending alerts if they fall or otherwise show signs of trouble. And since the technology is 83 percent reliable for identifying people in large groups (as many as 100 people), it could be helpful for search-and-rescue operations where it's important to know who you're looking for. Refinements could lead to 3D images that reveal even slight movements, such as a shaking hand.

It's hard to escape the potential privacy concerns. This could theoretically be used to spy on nearby buildings, or follow peopl to their destination even if they duck around a corner. However, CSAIL has a privacy solution in mind: it's developing a "consent mechanism" that would require performing specific movements before tracking kicks in. If that safeguard persisted in real-world applications, you wouldn't have to worry about losing your privacy for the sake of convenience.

Mounties, CSIS still haven't publicly ID'd people behind electronic cell surveillance in Ottawa .
After investigating for over a year, the RCMP and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) are still unable to publicly identify those who have deployed electronic espionage devices in the national capital. In April 2017, a CBC/Radio-Canada report revealed that IMSI catchers were being used in Ottawa and Montreal. These devices can capture cellphone data and listen to telephone conversations.News that sophisticated spying tools had been deployed within range of Parliament Hill caused some tumult within the government.
