When Your Website Looks Like 1995 in 2020

I recently had a friend connect with me on LinkedIn. I hadn’t talked to this person in quite a few years and naturally (as I tend to do) took a peek at his companies’ website. I won’t say what his organization does, as that will give it away and I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, but I will tell you I was shocked at what I found. While I can’t point to the URL, I will tell you what I discovered and how this may apply to you and your business. We will examine Design, Content & Security. Design: Their website looks like something we were building in the mid to late 90s, or as I like to say the early days of the web. The amazing thing is that this organization serves tens of thousands of members and is collecting huge fees (which isn’t going to their technology 😉 ). The… Source link

Algorithms associating appearance and criminality have a dark past

Using facial recognition software to analyse criminality is commonplace in many countries, but its origin very dark indeed.     ‘Phrenology’ has an old-fashioned ring to it. It sounds like it belongs in a history book, filed somewhere between bloodletting and velocipedes. We’d like to think that judging people’s worth based on the size and shape of their skull is a practice that’s well behind us. However, phrenology is once again rearing its lumpy head. In recent years,… Source link

An MIT spin-out company is planning to cross the commercial nuclear fusion finish line before anyone else, and big money is backing this game-changing tech that will dictate our energy future by promising unlimited zero-carbon energy–the holy grail.  By 2025, Commonwealth Fusion Systems (CFS)–an MIT spin-out–plans to see is SPARC project become the first fusion reactor to show “net energy gain” by 2025.

Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates believes it. He was the first big backer of CFS. And now, Norway’s oil giant–Equinor–is throwing money behind it.  Last… Source link
