Chris Trotter: Russia will need to win Syrian civil war if America refuses to end it
2016-09-25 14:52:17 (9 minutes ago) 
OPINION: The images emerging from Aleppo are gut-wrenching. Tiny babies, dust-covered and ominously silent, are pulled from the rubble of their homes. The cries of anguished parents mingle with the wailing of ambulance sirens as their broken children are carried away. A young man on Skype warns the world of Aleppo's "annihilation". A water-treatment plant is bombed, and in retaliation the only other functioning plant is shut down. Two million people are left without safe drinking water. This is the Syrian civil war up-close and personal. Unbelievably horrible.
 
Microsoft Patents A User-Monitoring AI That Improves Search Results
2016-09-25 14:51:58 (9 minutes ago) 
Slashdot reader MojoKid quotes a HotHardware article about Microsoft's new patent filing for an OS "mediation component": This is Microsoft's all-seeing-eye that monitors all textual input within apps to intelligently decipher what the user is trying to accomplish. All of this information could be gathered from apps like Word, Skype, or even Notepad by the Mediator and processed. So when the user goes to, for example, the Edge web browser to further research a topic, those contextual concepts are automatically fed into a search query. The search engine (e.g., Bing and Cortana) uses contextual rankers to adjust the ranking of the default suggested queries to produce more relevant [results]. The operating system...tracks all textual data displayed to the user by any application, and then performs clustering to determine the user intent (contextually). The article argues this feels "creepy and big brother-esque," and while Microsoft talks of defining a "task continuum," suggests the patent's process "would in essence keep track of everything you type and interact with in the OS and stockpile it in real-time to data-dump into Bing."

Robbo sez, "Jonathan Pie, preeminent UK political satirist, takes on British media and their role in declaring newly re-elected Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn 'unelectable'. Pie destroys the outrageous un-democratic media bias that has hounded Corbyn throughout his time as Labour leader and does so with his usual outstanding, hilarious, enraged and profane style."

Oculus execs defend company, founder amid political giving controversy

Following Oculus co-founder Palmer Luckey's own comments on his controversial political giving, two of Oculus's top executives have come out in support of their colleague and in defense of the company as a whole.

"I know that Palmer is deeply sorry for the impact this situation is having on the company, our partners and the industry," Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe wrote on Facebook, echoing similar sentiments expressed by Luckey himself. "Everyone at Oculus is free to support the issues or causes that matter to them, whether or not we agree with those views. It is important to remember that Palmer acted independently in a personal capacity, and was in no way representing the company."

Jason Rubin, who joined Oculus as Head of Worldwide Studios in 2014, also addressed the controversy via Facebook. After reading Luckey's statement, Rubin writes, "I take him at his word. Those of you who have known me before I joined Oculus know that I would not work in a place that I thought condoned, or spread hate. Nor would I remain silent if I saw it raise its head. I have always believed that games, and now especially VR, have the potential to bring people together. My view is unwavering. I continue to believe that Oculus can make the world a better place."

Tropical Depression EIGHTEEN-E Forecast Discussion Number 1
2016-09-25 13:11:13 (2 hours ago) 
Issued at 1000 AM PDT SUN SEP 25 2016 000 WTPZ43 KNHC 251652 TCDEP3 TROPICAL DEPRESSION EIGHTEEN-E SPECIAL DISCUSSION NUMBER 1 NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP182016 1000 AM PDT SUN SEP 25 2016 Deep convection associated with the low pressure area located well southwest of the Baja California has become better organized overnight, and early morning visible satellite imagery indicate that the circulation has become better defined. Based on these observations, and Dvorak classifications of T2.0 and T1.5 from TAFB and SAB respectively, advisories are being initiated on a 30-kt tropical depression at this time. The depression is currently located over warm water and within an area of low vertical wind shear, which is favorable for some gradual strengthening today. However, in about 24 hours, the tropical cyclone is forecast to move into an area of higher southwesterly shear caused by large mid- to upper-level low and associated trough over northwestern Mexico. The global models suggest that the shear will become quite strong in 36 to 48 hours as the cyclone begins moving over cooler waters. This should result in a rapid spin down, and the system is likely to become a post-tropical remnant low within 3 days. The official intensity foreast is slightly above the SHIPS guidance but is in good agreement with the intensity consensus. Since the depression is still in its formative stage, the initial motion is a somewhat uncertain 360/4 kt. The cyclone is expected to be steered slowly northward or north-northeastward during the next couple of days around the western portion of a weak mid-level ridge that extends southwestward from southern Mexico. By 72 hours, the low should turn northwestward in the low-level steering flow after it weakens and becomes a vertically shallow system. Although the ECMWF and GFS models are on opposite sides of the guidance envelope, the track models are in general agreement on the overall scenario and the NHC forecast lies near the multi-model consensus.

Krebs Is Back Online Thanks To Google's Project Shield
2016-09-25 12:51:39 (2 hours ago) 
"After the massive 600mbps DDOS attack on KrebsOnSecurity.com that forced Akamai to withdraw their (pro-bono) DDOS protection, krebsonsecurity.com is now back online, hosted by Google," reports Slashdot reader Gumbercules!!. "I am happy to report that the site is back up -- this time under Project Shield, a free program run by Google to help protect journalists from online censorship," Brian Krebs wrote today, adding "The economics of mitigating large-scale DDoS attacks do not bode well for protecting the individual user, to say nothing of independent journalists...anyone with an axe to grind and the willingness to learn a bit about the technology can become an instant, self-appointed global censor." [T]he Internet can't route around censorship when the censorship is all-pervasive and armed with, for all practical purposes, near-infinite reach and capacity. I call this rather unwelcome and hostile development the "The Democratization of Censorship...." [E]vents of the past week have convinced me that one of the fastest-growing censorship threats on the Internet today comes not from nation-states, but from super-empowered individuals who have been quietly building extremely potent cyber weapons with transnational reach... Akamai and its sister company Prolexic have stood by me through countless attacks over the past four years. It just so happened that this last siege was nearly twice the size of the next-largest attack they had ever seen before. Once it became evident that the assault was beginning to cause problems for the company's paying customers, they explained that the choice to let my site go was a business decision, pure and simple... In an interview with The Boston Globe, Akamai executives said the attack -- if sustained -- likely would have cost the company millions of dollars. One site told Krebs that Akamai-style protection would cost him $150,000 a year. "Ask yourself how many independent journalists could possibly afford that kind of protection money?" He suspects the attack was a botnet of enslaved IoT devices -- mainly cameras, DVRs, and routers -- but says the situation is exacerbated by the failure of many ISPs to implement the BCP38 security standard to filter spoofed traffic, "allowing systems on their networks to be leveraged in large-scale DDoS attacks... the biggest offenders will continue to fly under the radar of public attention unless and until more pressure is applied by hardware and software makers, as well as ISPs that are doing the right thing... What appears to be missing is any sense of urgency to address the DDoS threat on a coordinated, global scale."

Ask Slashdot: Who's Building The Open Source Version of Siri?
2016-09-25 13:51:43 (1 hours ago) 
We're moving to a world of voice interactions processed by AI. Now Long-time Slashdot reader jernst asks, "Will we ever be able to do that without going through somebody's proprietary silo like Amazon's or Apple's?" A decade ago, we in the free and open-source community could build our own versions of pretty much any proprietary software system out there, and we did... But is this still true...? Where are the free and/or open-source versions of Siri, Alexa and so forth? The trouble, of course, is not so much the code, but in the training. The best speech recognition code isn't going to be competitive unless it has been trained with about as many millions of hours of example speech as the closed engines from Apple, Google and so forth have been. How can we do that? The same problem exists with AI. There's plenty of open-source AI code, but how good is it unless it gets training and retraining with gigantic data sets? And even with that data, Siri gets trained with a massive farm of GPUs running 24/7 -- but how can the open source community replicate that? "Who has a plan, and where can I sign up to it?" asks jernst. So leave your best answers in the comments. Who's building the open source version of Siri?
