The trial of Elizabeth Holmes, disgraced founder of blood-testing start-up Theranos, kick-started with jury selection in a California courthouse on Tuesday.

Facebook just announced a new AI research project called TextStyleBrush, which is the equivalent of deepfake face technology for text and it is astonishingly realistic.
They said it can copy a style of text from a photograph using just a single word and change it to whatever word you like. It can replace both handwritten and computer-generated fonts.

Twitter has announced it is developing a feature that will warn users if their tweets are ‘mean’. This automatic feature designed to detect if a tweet may be offensive will warn users with a message asking if they really want to send the tweet or instead edit/delete it.
According to Twitter, when users get a warning, 34 percent of them will go back and revise their tweet to something less mean! This is all part of Twitter’s overall mission to reduce toxicity on the platform, but we would argue that it is really part of their effort to suppress free speech.
The feature was launched on Wednesday but is only available for English speaking users. Twitter makes no secret of its aim to control a user’s speech, at the start of the year they banned President Trump and since then they’ve been on a crusade to silent anyone who doesn’t’ agree with their views. Organizations have even been banned for simply suggesting that Big Tech should be regulated.
Many conservative users have grown tired of Twitter’s antics and have moved to more free speech friendly platforms such as Gab and Parler. We don’t blame them!
A nine-year-old macaque monkey, named Pager, can play the video game Pong (MindPong) telepathically with his brain! Thanks to a Neuralink implanted in each side of his brain he can control the paddles on the game without moving a muscle.
The neuralinks decode and transmit his neural activity to the computer completely wirelessly as he enjoys a banana smoothie as a reward. Elon Musk hopes that the work done by Neuralink will help people with neurological conditions control computers and mobile phones remotely using a brain chip. Researchers are also hopeful that the technology could be used to help people with paralysis regain mobility.

Facebook has banned a video of an interview with President Donald Trump conducted by his daughter in law, Lara Trump.
A group of Trump employees got an email from a Facebook employee saying that any posts where Donald Trump can be heard speaking will be removed from Facebook or Instagram and limitations may be placed on the accounts posting it. The interview was posted to Lara Trump’s Facebook page, but it was removed by Facebook shortly afterward.
We also have news about Donald Trump’s new social media platform named ‘Trumper’. The headquarters will be based in Ireland and will be officially launched within 2-3 months.

Multiple reports have confirmed that Amazon will be opening the first checkout-free physical shop in the United Kingdom this week. Called Amazon Go, the concept was first launched in the United States two years ago but now the first store is set to open in the UK.
These stores are checkout-free with minimal staff. When entering the store, customers scan the Amazon Go app on the turnstile. Cameras monitor you from above and weight sensors on the shelves determine what you take.
When a customer picks up an item it is automatically added to their virtual shopping cart and if they put the item back, it is automatically deleted. When they leave the shop, the card associated with their amazon account is automatically billed and they are emailed the receipt.
Sounds convenient but this another blow to small high street shops who will never be able to compete with this technology. By putting another nail in the coffin of small high street businesses and with minimal staff employed, these shops are not doing anything for the UK economy.
Watch the full video to see inside these Amazon Go shops and how they could sting small businesses and the UK economy…
