“It is not a 3-D re-creation; we give the real image,” Simon said. “We see the surface of the court how it is, even if it has moved or just moved.”

This year, the U.S. Open became the first Grand Slam event to use almost exclusively electronic line calling, eliminating line umpires on all but two of its courts. Initial feedback was positive, according to Stacey Allaster, the tournament director, but the U.S. Open has yet to commit to using the same system in 2021.

Electronic line judging would most likely eliminate one current issue: umpires examining the wrong ball mark on the clay, which is a frequent source of tension with players. But if there is a switch to electronic calls, players will still be able to see the mark on clay, and it will not always match what technology records.

“The ball mark can be larger or smaller

Publishing such information violates the Convention of the Rights of the Child, a U.N. agreement to which Argentina is a signatory, that says a child’s privacy should be respected at all stages of legal proceedings, said Hye Jung Han, a researcher and advocate in the children’s rights division at Human Rights Watch, who was the lead researcher on the report.

Argentina’s embassy in Washington did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

On a visit to Argentina in May 2019, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the right to privacy warned the Argentine government that CONARC’s database contained 61 children. By that October Argentina’s justice ministry said there was no children’s data in CONARC. But the report contends the practice continued after the U.N. visit, with 25 additional children added to the database.

An HRW review of CONARC also saw that the public information about the children was peppered

Launching out of stealth, the HUMAN Protocol is currently used by 10 percent of the internet on a daily basis, including Coinbase, Bitfinex, and FTX.

HUMAN Protocol, a decentralized solution for organizing, evaluating and compensating businesses and individuals for performing Human Intelligence Tasks (HITs), launched out of stealth today. The formerly private protocol is currently used by 10 percent of the internet and 10 percent of the crypto-community and is overseen by the HUMAN Protocol Foundation, an ecosystem of industry stakeholders who share its vision of creating a more ethical, private, and secure internet. HUMAN Protocol’s first application, hCaptcha, is actively being used by thousands of different websites, including the Canadian government, Rakuten, Gartner, Craigslist and most blockchain exchanges to ensure they are receiving genuine human traffic and engagement. Nearly all cryptocurrency users have interacted with HUMAN Protocol technology, whether they are aware of the interaction or not.

Foglets.com says, “the human brain operates at 1 exaFLOP, which is equivalent to a billion billion calculations per second.” They describe the human brain as a “tangled, seemingly random mess of neurons that do not behave in a predictable manner.”

Amnesty International is criticizing Palantir’s human rights record a day before the secretive Silicon Valley technology startup is set to go public.

In a report on Monday, Amnesty singled out Palantir’s contracts with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as well as Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Palantir’s software allows ICE to build detailed profiles of people in a single location, drawing on existing ICE data, public records and active investigations. 

Amnesty says ICE has also used Palantir’s technology in arresting the parents of children who cross the border unaccompanied and to conduct massive workplace raids, such as a 2019 raid in Mississippi  that swept up nearly 700 workers.

The data company “has sought to deflect and minimize its responsibility to protect human rights,” Amnesty said, adding that “there is a high risk that Palantir is contributing to serious human rights violations of migrants and asylum-seekers.”

“Palantir touts its ethical commitments,
