Google swallows DeepMind Health - BBC News
When the restructuring was announced last year, DeepMind was accused of breaking a promise not to hand over any NHS data to the American search giant.

Google said the transfer to its global health division would give DeepMind's Streams app, which helps doctors and nurses to monitor patients with a severe kidney condition, the resources it needed to expand internationally.

Google 'betrays patient trust' with DeepMind Health move | Technology | The Guardian
Now that Streams is a Google product itself, that promise appears to have been broken, says privacy researcher Julia Powles: “Making this about semantics is a sleight of hand. DeepMind said it would never connect Streams with Google. The whole Streams app is now a Google product. That is an atrocious breach of trust, for an already beleaguered product.”

Wolfgang Schäuble zur Lage in Europa | spiegel.tv
24:20 - Eric Schmitz told Schaeuble in Davos 2016 (Feb) - that Schaeuble should think about the possibility of Trump being President. Not candidate, but President.
See book Taibbi about the election and other books about the election.
tl;dr from this anecdote, big data showed (+ business instinct of Eric Schmitz?) the possibility of Trump. Thus, VERY Interesting, that Hillary Clinton campaign did not try mitigate risk and adopt more Sanders or put him as Vice president or other Bernie-like politicians.

Do advertisers love or hate Facebook and Google? - BBC News
"Unilever will not invest in platforms or environments that do not protect our children or which create division in society, and promote anger or hate."

Is this genuine concern for consumers and society with a bit of halo-polishing thrown in - or is this the beginning of a genuine backlash against the giants of digital advertising?

As one senior industry insider told me "watch what they do, not what they say"

Facebook’s war on free will | Technology | The Guardian
In reality, Facebook is a tangle of rules and procedures for sorting information, rules devised by the corporation for the ultimate benefit of the corporation. Facebook is always surveilling users, always auditing them, using them as lab rats in its behavioural experiments. While it creates the impression that it offers choice, in truth Facebook paternalistically nudges users in the direction it deems best for them, which also happens to be the direction that gets them thoroughly addicted. It’s a phoniness that is most obvious in the compressed, historic career of Facebook’s mastermind. [...] The problem is that when we outsource thinking to machines, we are really outsourcing thinking to the organisations that run the machines.

Battle for power at Uber as investor sues ex-CEO Travis Kalanick alleging fraud | Technology | The Guardian
Kalanick failed to disclose vital information about the self-driving truck startup Otto before Uber acquired it for $680m in 2016, the complaint alleges. That acquisition has been tainted by a massive lawsuit brought by Google spinoff Waymo over allegations that former Google engineer and Otto founder Anthony Levandowski stole Google’s intellectual property and took it to Uber.

The lawsuit makes clear that Benchmark blames Kalanick personally for the mess, which poses a serious danger to Uber’s ability to develop its own autonomous vehicle technology. //&! https://www.recode.net/2017/8/14/16144710/uber-benchmark-capital-travis-kalanick-lawsuit-board-ceo &! https://techcrunch.com/2017/08/11/uber-board-benchmark-lawsuit/ &! https://soundcloud.com/exponentfm/episode-121-the-uber-mutation

Google staffer's hostility to affirmative action sparks furious backlash | World news | The Guardian
The manifesto argues that the lack of women in tech and leadership is the result, at least in part, of innate differences between in men and women. “I’m simply stating that the distribution of preferences and abilities of men and women differ in part due to biological causes and that these differences may explain why we don’t see equal representation of women in tech and leadership,” the author writes.

After a number of female staff described their disgust at the document on social media, Google sent out a company-wide memo saying it did not represent the company’s views.

A giant problem | The Economist
As our special report this week makes clear, the superstars are admirable in many ways. They churn out products that improve consumers’ lives, from smarter smartphones to sharper televisions. They provide Americans and Europeans with an estimated $280 billion-worth of “free” services—such as search or directions—a year. But they have two big faults. They are squashing competition, and they are using the darker arts of management to stay ahead. Neither is easy to solve. But failing to do so risks a backlash which will be bad for everyone. [...] The world needs a healthy dose of competition to keep today’s giants on their toes and to give those in their shadow a chance to grow.

Facebook’s new algorithm change is what makes publishers so afraid of Facebook - Recode
Today, Facebook announced that it’s tweaking its algorithm so that users see less stuff shared by publishers and brands and more stuff from friends and family. This isn’t a nightmare scenario for publishers, but it’s pretty grim; websites and news organizations are leaning more and more on Facebook for growing their audiences, and Facebook just weakened a key traffic driver for them. //&! I hesitate to make this analogy, but publishers relying on Facebook are starting to look a whole lot like drivers who keep trusting Uber to make their lives better. - http://bit.ly/29kik4J

The Growth Trap
[ growing for growth sake! vs growing in a world/area that is not conducive to grow ] When Twitter went public in 2013, its stock soared and its value jumped to $25 billion. Its founders and early investors got rich. But since then, the company has been considered a failure, despite the fact that it boasts 320 million active users, because it's not growing fast enough. Douglas Rushkoff, author of "Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus: How Growth Became the Enemy of Prosperity," talks to Steve Paikin about why he sees the push for more growth as dangerous. // true capitalists (shareholder, crony, greedy) w/o self-regulation or governance extract all the value there is to extract and then leave, dispersing it to the few who already have [...] WE MUST REWRITE THE RULES OF THE GROWTH GAME ITSELF!

Media Websites Battle Faltering Ad Revenue and Traffic
[lots more competition for people's attention] The trouble, the publishers say, is twofold. The web advertising business, always unpredictable, became more treacherous. And website traffic plateaued at many large sites, in some cases falling — a new and troubling experience after a decade of exuberant growth. Online publishers have faced numerous financial challenges in recent years, including automated advertising and ad-blocking tools. But now, there is a realization that something more profound has happened: The transition from an Internet of websites to an Internet of mobile apps and social platforms, and Facebook in particular, is no longer coming — it is here.

Why Everyone Must Get Ready For The 4th Industrial Revolution
For example, as automation increases, computers and machines will replace workers across a vast spectrum of industries, from drivers to accountants and estate agents to insurance agents. By one estimate, as many as 47 percent of U.S. jobs are at risk from automation. Many experts suggest that the fourth industrial revolution will benefit the rich much more than the poor, especially as low-skill, low-wage jobs disappear in favor of automation.

But this isn’t new. Historically, industrial revolutions have always begun with greater inequality followed by periods of political and institutional change. The industrial revolution that began at the beginning of the 19th century originally led to a huge polarization of wealth and power, before being followed by nearly 100 years of change including the spread of democracy, trade unions, progressive taxation and the development of social safety nets.

Börsenpläne von Spotify: Der Sound der Zocker
Eine Milliarde Dollar (880 Millionen Euro) leiht sich der Musikdienst laut "Wall Street Journal" bei Finanzinvestoren und der Großbank Goldman Sachs. Spotify verspricht den Geldgebern neben Zinszahlungen auch Anteile am Unternehmen. Wie viel Spotify zahlen muss und in welcher Größenordnung Anteile den Besitzer wechseln, hängt davon ab, wann die Schweden an die Börse gehen. Mit jedem Halbjahr, in dem das Start-up die Erstemission herauszögert, wird es jedenfalls teurer.

Das macht den Deal hochriskant für Spotify: Von Profitabilität ist der Dienst weit entfernt, 2014 fuhr der Dienst einen Verlust von 162 Millionen Euro ein. Die neuen Schulden könnten das Unternehmen in einen ruinösen Strudel von schrumpfenden Geldreserven, drückender Zinslast und immer mieseren Börsenaussichten reißen.

Life and death in the App Store | The Verge
[ land grab and winner takes all environment, the long-tail is not what it was supposed to be promised by some ] 'the app store resembles now a lottery' [...] Today, profiting from the App Store most often requires a mix of in-app purchases, subscriptions, and advertising. [...] Meanwhile, a fatigue is setting in among customers. There are now more than 1.5 million apps in the App Store (Android users have 1.6 million to choose from), but by 2014, the majority of Americans were downloading zero apps per month. And it turns out people simply don’t use most of the apps they do download. According to ComScore, the average person spends 80 percent of their time on mobile devices using only three apps.

Google unpaid taxes: France seeks €1.6bn from search giant - BBC News
The figure is substantially more than the £130m the search engine agreed to pay in back taxes to UK authorities. However, France's AFP news agency reported that Google might be able to negotiate and may not pay the full sum. The company's chief executive, Sundar Pichai, is visiting Paris and was due to meet the France's economy minister Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday night. It is not clear if they will discuss the tax issue. Earlier this month, French Finance Minister Michel Sapin ruled out striking a deal with the US company. [...] [ HMRC's VIP deals ] Brussels investigates Europe's competition authorities have been examining whether some deals struck by big companies with national tax authorities amount to illegal state aid. Starbucks and Fiat Chrysler were told they must pay back up to €30m (£22m) in taxes after European tax breaks were ruled illegal.

SoundCloud to seek more funding in 2016 - FT.com
SoundCloud will need to raise more money in the next 12 months to stay in business, according to the music streaming service’s latest financial statements.

KPMG, SoundCloud’s auditor, said in the report that the need for additional funding represented “a material uncertainty which may cast significant doubt on the company’s ability to continue as a going concern”.
