#RiseOfAI @Riseof_AI starts with a chatGPT piped to text-to-video keynote. @bootstrappingme says 99% of people can't spot that this is not a person. Are there stats about this? I had about 0.2 seconds of doubt, but I'm sure there's better text to speech out there now.
Fabian did a great (incl. funny) job of complying with… and fighting the #futureOfWork misinfo, but repeats the "#AIAct would have blocked #chatGPT" US west-coast talking point. Has someone written a takedown of that yet? #AIEthics @meerihaataja * #riseofai
** The GDPR though should already have blocked #chatGPT hoovering up our data for @OpenAI / @Microsoft for free, is that already getting investigated for prosecution? Anyone? #DSA #AIReguation #digitalGovernance #RiseOfAI

Russische #Kriegswirtschaft und Anpassung an Sanktionen: Seit der russischen Invasion in die Ukraine vom 24. Februar letzten Jahres hat #Russland erhebliche Materialverluste erlitten. So wurden z.B. geschätzt die Hälfte der russischen #Panzer zerstört. Wie reagiert das Land?
Die #Sanktionen haben Russlands Rüstungsindustrie unter Druck gesetzt, so dass es zu Produktionsausfällen kam. High-Tech Güter aus dem Westen sind für viele Waffensysteme wichtig und standen nur begrenzt zu Verfügung.
Aber gleichzeitig hat die russische Wirtschaft 2022 besser durchgestanden als vorhergesagt. Die wirtschaftliche Basis für Russlands Angriffskrieg bleibt bestehen, auch wenn die Ölsanktionen inzwischen russische Staatseinnahmen empfindlich treffen.

Grey area in securities regulation @SECGov has birthed a new phenomenon: bearer security tokens

Investors aren't aware of the risks associated w/ these assets so I wrote an article to share👇

Buyers Beware: Introducing Bearer Security Tokens👀

Link:… Image
Security tokens are digital assets that comply w/ government securities regulations & automatically enforce rules, guidelines & parameters given a security

The @STOmarket secondary market capitalization has exploded more than 10x from last year to today & now sits @ $15B 🌴
#Realestate has been cementing its place in the security token industry as a beneficiary of the technology since 2018 and 2019.🏚

We have seen a multitude of real estate security token offerings. According to the STM Real Estate Intelligence Report, by @pgaff_digital

Social media platforms will no longer behave like they are “too big to care”.
Whether they have feathers or not 🐦

As #DSA enters into force today, these are the 4️⃣ steps ahead for digital platforms to comply with our 🇪🇺 rules

🧵 Image
1⃣ Transparency on numbers 👀
By 17 February 2023, online platforms will have to report the number of their active end users.

Based on these numbers, we will assess if they are:

✔️Very Large Online Platforms

✔️Very Large Online Search Engines #VLOSEs
2⃣ Comply AND explain 🔎

Once designed as such, these very large entities will have 4 months to comply with the obligations under the DSA.

Notably on content #moderation and #risk assessments.

The Commission will thoroughly examine this compliance starting summer 2023.

Today @PNASNews published one of the most important studies I've conducted. We asked: do international treaties produce the effects their negotiators intended? The short answer is "no".

Here I will try to summarize almost 10 years of work in 10 tweets.🧵…
1. To start, treaties are often used by countries to address issues that transcend national boundaries, like the environment, human rights, humanitarian crises, maritime issues, security and trade. Today there are at least 250,000 treaties, yet few have been evaluated for impact.
2. So we conducted a systematic field-wide evidence synthesis. We searched 11 databases, combed through 24,096 records, and found 224 quantitative impact evaluations of treaties. We then used statistical techniques to integrate all unique quantitative estimates of effects. Image

Excited to release our latest @BU_Law #immigrants' rights & human trafficking #clinic report on the Institutional Hearing Program ("IHP"), a little known program that quickly, and quietly, #deports noncitizens convicted of crimes. THREAD 1/…
For more than 40 years, IHP has been operating in the shadows, yet another branch of the vast #ICE #enforcement regime. IHP operates at least across 19 states, #deporting noncitizens who are unlikely to be represented by counsel. 2/
Our report is a snapshot of how this little studied program operates to swiftly deport #immigrants across New England. Here's some of what we found. 3/

"#Data: a new direction" - a public consultation by @DCMS on "reforms to the UK’s #DataProtection regime":…

The consultation ends on 19 Nov 2021, and you can respond by e-mail to or online here:… Image
A quick sample of initial reactions...

We're clearly going to be hearing a lot about #LegitimateInterests, as well as #commercial and #public ones. The real question being, how do this Government's interests actually align with YOURS?

140+ pages on a Friday is a lot to digest, but @lilianedwards' "penumbra of often futile determinedly populist ideas largely not evidence-based" seems entirely consistent with @DCMS's Drunkard's Walk through #data and #ID this past year...

1/5 Which #TravelRestrictions were most effective to contain the spread of #COVID19?🌍New systematic review out now in the Journal of Infection (pre-proof):


@rki_de @CBcheraoui @Elie__Akl @SPARK_AUB @biainfection

2/5 In 2020, most countries switched from total to targeted #border closures followed by mandatory #quarantine and #screening of #travelers.
3/5 Evidence suggests: border closures may reduce the number of #COVID19 cases, disrupt disease spread across countries/between regions & slow #outbreak progression.

Early implementation, in combination with measures to reduce #transmission rates, likely enhances these effects.

This is absolutely grotesque. Shame on @TVDSB & the teachers who enforced it.

"You'll be forgiven if you didn't know that some children had to be silent while eating their lunches & snacks... #Enforcement of the no-talking-during-lunch rule varies.."…
"Some #teachers are concerned that #COVID19 will spread further and faster if kids are allowed to talk, said @etfopresident, who represents Thames Valley's 3,600 teachers as head of the Elementary Teachers Federation of #Ontario."

#Trauma #Oppression #Conditioning
"In a Grade 2 #classroom, they have a hard time sitting still to begin with, and asking them not to speak, they look like they're being #punished...

Other teachers put on a movie or #television show to get the kids to focus on the front of the room, and not each other." ImageImageImageImage

Tony's STILL banging on about #IDcards, nearly 20yrs later - 'cos make no mistake, that's what #VaccinePassports will become.

Just as WWII's [left 👇] became @10DowningStreet/@ukhomeoffice's [right 👇] with a centralised #biometric #NationalIdentityRegister behind it... ImageImage will #YellowCards [left 👇] morph into 'just an #app on your #phone' [right 👇] - claimed to be 'not #mandatory', of course (unless you want to live your life, work or travel...) and with the centralised #biometric #registration Government has wanted all along. ImageImage
So here's a few questions the #HealthPassport headbangers must answer:

1a) When Heathrow re-opens, given (current) #vaccines don't prevent #transmission, aren't people still going to have to be #tested?

1b) If people have to be tested anyway, what's the point of the 'passport'?

Is #concentration rising? @AffeldtPauline, @JoannaPiechucka, #KlausGugler and I use a novel dataset containing information on over 20,000 relevant antitrust markets between 1990-2014 to assess this question:…. We find quite some heterogeneity. A thread 1/N
The extant literature measures #concentration using #industry classifications. Data are mostly aggregated at the national/regional level for all products. Yet, both the #geographic and the #product market definitions should be based on the #substitutability among products. 2/N
Our database identifies over 20,000 product/geographic #antitrust markets affected by over 2,000 mergers scrutinized by the European Commission between 1995-2014. This allows measuring concentration consistently on an economy-wide basis over time (…) 3/N

We recently explored: A Rockefeller communication manual on #contacttracing, the [Share] Verified (UN/Purpose) guide on vaccine #communications, & insights from The #Vaccine Confidence Project.
Here is another from The Behavioral Insights Team - "at the heart of the #UK gov't".
Spun from the "heart of the UK gov't", The Behavioral Insights Team expanded to a global consulting firm "w/ offices around the world... Our work spanned 31 countries in the last year alone...Our growing portfolio of #BI #Ventures makes #behaviouralscience-backed tools..."
The strategic & coordinated campaigns for global vaccine roll-outs & uptake, must be understood as #advertising/ marketing. The more subtle, the more effective. Billions $$$ have been invested for one simple reason: huge returns. What we see today - has been years in the making.

...meanwhile - in the midst of the pandemic, and despite the fact that only two of the first TEN participants have even published anything - @iconews will "accelerate and expand" its #sandbox 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

Because in matters of #regulation, #innovation trumps #enforcement, y'know...

@CISecurity demonstrates how the controls map to the all important ATT&CK that is as relevant/actionable to security risk management as anything out there.…

It is certainly not a coincidence that this letter calling for an overhaul of #HIPAA #Security #regulation and #enforcement recommends CIS Controls as the guidance framework.

#SupremeCourt order on Chidambaram's bail at 10.30 by a three-judge bench led by Justice R Banumathi.

Senior advocates Kapil Sibal, AM Singhvi and Salman Khurshid are in the court room

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta too is present.
Today is 106th day of his custody. #PChidambaram has sought bail in the case registered by the #Enforcement Directorate in connection with the #INXMediaCase. Delhi HC refused him bail citing gravity of the offence.
Justice As Bopanna reads out the judgement.

Economic offences will fall in the category of grave offences.

Study on 'cookie banners' finds that in August 2018 less than 5 percent of the 5,000 most popular websites in the EU provided a visible 'choice' to *decline* extensive data sharing with third-party companies (based on analyzing a sample of 1,000 notices) #gdpr #enforcement #fail
What surprises me is that still 6-8% of users go through the trouble of deselecting *several* options despite the use of #darkpatterns. More than I expected.

Anyway, if opting into non-preticked 'categories' would be enforced, almost no one would opt in.
My take on this:

If almost no one would opt in, cookie banners would disappear.

Websites & other services may then try to take the 'sell your data or pay' route. They shouldn't be allowed to.

As a consequence, some of them may then stop providing services without payment, yes.
