It’s no secret that Facebook’s judgment calls on risky content are sometimes more than a little problematic. But just what are the rules guiding those decisions? You’ll know after today.

The Guardian has obtained leaked copies of over 100 internal documents outlining Facebook’s rules for handling sensitive content, and it’s clear that the social network is struggling to walk a fine line between freedom of expression and protecting users. At least some of it is understandable, but there are areas where its decision-making might rub you the wrong way.

Intel’s Compute Card could transform the world of smart devices by https://is.gd/dQWPif

It doesn’t take too long before your typical “smart” gadget becomes dumb. After a few years, the hardware inside of your TV or connected refrigerator will be hopelessly out of date. And if you want to upgrade, your only choice right now is to buy a whole new device.

Intel is hoping to change that with the Compute Card, a credit card-size device that packs in all of the hardware — a processor, memory, storage and networking capabilities — needed to make any device smart.

How To Abandon iOS And Switch To Android by https://is.gd/Ya5TqY

Having guided you through the not-all-that-straightforward process of switching from Android to iOS, we’re back to tell you how to go in the opposite direction. (Make your mind up will you?) Going from Apple-powered devices to Google’s platform is either ridiculously easy or rather taxing, depending on your current setup.

Blockchains Never Forget by https://is.gd/OFGKhN

Just three years ago, in 2014, I wrote a little short story set in a future where most work is organized around blockchains. That story was set sometime past the 2120s, but it appears we’ll get there a century earlier than I thought.

The idea of organizing work through smart contracts on blockchains has been moving ahead at a breathtaking pace.

Tomorrow’s Cars Won’t Just Drive Themselves. They’ll Feel Different by https://is.gd/9Zp6QD

Look inside a modern car, and you’ll see many of the same materials that formed the earliest automobiles. Leather, wood, metal, and cloth convey a sense of luxury, a connection to the beloved way things were. You may see synthetic stuff too, materials born of the jet and space ages.

As the auto industry adapts to a smartphone-enabled world and looks to the potentially radical changes offered by autonomy, sharing, and alternative powertrains, what you touch and feel inside the car has once again drawn the attention of the world’s designers.

Consumers have other concerns. Vegan leather substitutes, fast-growing and readily renewable woods like bamboo or banana leaf, and recycled fabric blends cater to a newly popular interest in sustainability.

The state of the car computer: Forget horsepower, we want megahertz! by https://is.gd/4jZ36Z

If I asked you “how many computing devices do you own?” your mind will probably first jump to your PCs and laptops at home, and then to your smartphones and tablets. The more tech savvy might include smartwatches, TVs, and video game systems. But there’s one computing device that not many people think about as a computing device: the car infotainment system.

Google, Not the Government, Is Building the Future by https://is.gd/1KozWh

One persistent criticism of Silicon Valley is that it no longer works on big, world-changing ideas. Every few months, a dumb start-up will make the news — most recently the one selling a $700 juicer — and folks outside the tech industry will begin singing I-told-you-sos.

But don’t be fooled by expensive juice. The idea that Silicon Valley no longer funds big things isn’t just wrong, but also obtuse and fairly dangerous.

Teaching Your Computer by https://is.gd/qzqfcY

As I have written in my last two articles (Machine Learning Everywhere and Preparing Data for Machine Learning), machine learning is influencing our lives in numerous ways.

Machine learning is everywhere, and although the theory and practice both can take some time to learn and internalize, the basics are fairly straightforward for people to learn.

The basic idea behind machine learning is that you build a model—a description of the ways the inputs and outputs are related. This model then allows you to ask the computer to analyze new data and to predict the outputs for new sets of inputs. This is essentially what machine learning is all about.
