Unlearning the myth of American innocence | US news | The Guardian
Really interesting how a collective belief in exceptionalism can lead to fascism of a sort.

It was a quiet kind of fascism that would mean I would always see Turkey as beneath the country I came from, and also that would mean I believed my uniquely benevolent country to have uniquely benevolent intentions towards the peoples of the world.

The Business of Artificial Intelligence
In our view, artificial intelligence, especially machine learning, is the most important general-purpose technology of our era. The impact of these innovations on business and the economy will be reflected not only in their direct contributions but also in their ability to enable and inspire complementary innovations. New products and processes are being made possible by better vision systems, speech recognition, intelligent problem solving, and many other capabilities that machine learning delivers.

Quackspeak ascendant: China's subject-changing astroturfers rule the Chinese internet / Boing Boing
China's approach to networked control is one of three dominant strategies used in the world: in Russia, they fill the channel with an untanglable mess of lies and truth, leading people to give up on understanding the situation; for the west's alt-right trolls, the strategy is to be so outrageous that you get picked up and retransmitted by every channel, which lets you reach the tiny minority of otherwise too-thin-spread, broken people and recruit them to your cause; and in China, it's quackspeak, this anodyne, happy-talk-style chatter about nothing.

The Tiny Satellites Ushering in the New Space Revolution - Bloomberg
Hit another button, and the software will calculate how much oil is in a given tank. “There are floating lids that sit on top of the tanks,” Crawford says. “If the lid is all the way up, there’s no shadow, and we know it’s full.” If there’s a shadow, Orbital Insight measures its angle and the dimensions of the tank to calculate the volume of liquid inside.

White House opioid commission to Trump: 'Declare a national emergency' on drug overdoses - Baltimore Sun
Things they ask for:

"—Expanding capacity for drug treatment under Medicaid;
—Increasing the use of medication-assisted treatments, like buprenorphine and suboxone, for opioid disorders;
—Encouraging the development of new non-opioid pain relievers;
—Mandating that every local law enforcement officer in the nation carry naloxone, the drug that rapidly reverses opiate overdose;
—Broadening "good samaritan" laws that shield individuals from prosecution when they report a drug overdose to first responders or law enforcement officials.

Things they don't ask for:
"Notably absent from the report are a number of tough-on-crime measures that the President and his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, have repeatedly help up as solutions to the opioid crisis, including building a wall on the Mexican border, expanding the use of mandatory minimum sentencing for drug crimes, and seizing more cash and property from individuals suspected of drug crimes."
