Pichai meets Ivanka Trump, to teach US workers tech skills

Ivanka, an adviser to the US president, said at the event that that the goal, through the pledge, “is to fill those opportunities with the next generation of talent”.

San Francisco, Oct 4 : Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Ivanka Trump have announced an initiative to provide 250,000 training opportunities over the next five years for the US citizens to learn new-age technology skills.

Pichai made the announcement with Ivanka Trump at a round-table event in Dallas on Thursday, reports CNET.

The Google CEO, in the line of US President Donald Trump’s fire over the tech giant’s alleged ties to the tampering in 2016 US presidential elections and China’s military, said Google will sign the “Pledge to America’s Workers”, an effort by the White House to “expand programmes that educate, train and reskill American workers from high-school age to near-retirement.”

The Department of Justice is also investigating the search giant for possible antitrust behaviour.

The US President has also accused Google of having an anti-conservative bias, calling the company’s search results “rigged.”

Ivanka, an adviser to the US president, said at the event that that the goal, through the pledge, “is to fill those opportunities with the next generation of talent”.

Donald Trump in March addressed Pichai on Twitter as “President of Google” after meeting him to discuss issues surrounding its dealings with China and “political fairness”.

Pichai is Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Google.

“Just met with @SundarPichai, President of @Google, who is obviously doing quite well. He stated strongly that he is totally committed to the U.S. Military, not the Chinese Military….,” Trump tweeted after the meeting.

“…Also discussed political fairness and various things that @Google can do for our Country. Meeting ended very well,” he tweeted.

Google earlier faced flak after media reported that the company was trying to build a secret search engine for China that would censor results. The project was reportedly put on hold after Google faced global outrage.

Halt global 5G networks roll out until safety is confirmed: Expert

Its inherent fragility means that transmission boosting ‘cell’ antennae are generally required every 100-300 m — which is far more spatially dense than the transmission masts required for older 2G, 3G and 4G technology, using lower frequency waves.

London, Jan 20 : The rollout of 5G networks should be halted until the safety of the technology has been tested and proven, an expert has urged.

According to Professor John William Frank from the University of Edinburgh, the transmitter density required for 5G means that more people will be exposed to radio frequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMFs), and at levels that emerging evidence suggests, are potentially harmful to health.

However, Professor Frank does stress the ridiculousness of linking 5G exposures to Covid-19, as suggested by some conspiracy theorists.

5G uses much higher frequency (3 to 300GHz) radio waves than in the past and it makes use of very new — and relatively unevaluated, in terms of safety — supportive technology to enable this higher data transmission capacity, Frank pointed out in an opinion piece published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health.

Its inherent fragility means that transmission boosting ‘cell’ antennae are generally required every 100-300 m — which is far more spatially dense than the transmission masts required for older 2G, 3G and 4G technology, using lower frequency waves.

The professor explained that existing 4G systems can service up to 4000 radio frequency-using devices per square kilometre; 5G systems will connect up to one million devices per square kilometre — greatly increasing the speed of data transfer (by a factor of 10) and the volume of data transmitted (by a factor of 1000).

“It is highly likely that each of these many forms of transmission causes somewhat different biological effects — making sound, comprehensive and up-to-date research on those effects virtually impossible,” he said.

Recent reviews of lab data on RF-EMFs indicate that exposures can produce wide-ranging effects, including reproductive, fetal, oncological, neuropsychiatric, skin, eye and immunological. But there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever to suggest that it is implicated in the spread of Covid-19, as some conspiracy theorists have suggested, he emphasised.

But for the current 5G roll-out, there’s a sound basis for invoking ‘the precautionary principle’ because of significant doubts about the safety of a new and potentially widespread human exposure, which should be reason enough “to call a moratorium on that exposure, pending adequate scientific investigation of its suspected adverse health effects,” he said.

Parliamentary panel summons Facebook, Twitter officials on Jan 21

New Delhi, Jan 18: The Parliamentary Committee on Information Technology has issued summons to officials of Facebook and Twitter for January 21, to question them over misuse of the social media/online news platforms.

The schedule of meeting on the Lok Sabha website read: “Evidence of representatives of Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology and to hear the views of the representatives of Facebook and Twitter on the subject safeguarding citizens’ rights and prevention of misuse of social/online news media platforms including special emphasis on women security in the digital space.”

Earlier, the committee had summoned Facebook’s India head Ajit Mohan over the issue of political bias on the social media platform.

The allegations of a Facebook bias towards the BJP were reported in The Wall Street Journal in August 2020 and had claimed that Ankhi Das, the platform’s then India Policy Head had opposed the idea of removing hate posts by BJP leaders, warning that this could hamper their “commercial interests”.

Das has now quit Facebook.
