One video game developer has shown us a beautiful way to deal with online trolls.Alex Neonakis, who has worked in game design for 10 years, started a donation campaign for video game education program Girls Make Games (GMG) after she became the target of online harassment.Neonakis found herself on the receiving end of trolling after standing up for video game animator Allie Rose-Marie Leost, who was trolled for working on a new game “Mass Effect: Andromeda.” Neonakis came to her defense on Twitter and was subsequently targeted as well.“Ever want to have a bunch of dudes explain meritocracy to you over and over again?Post about your experience existing in a workplace,” she told the Huffington Post.— Alexandria Neonakis (@Beavs) March 19, 2017

Germany announced this week that it will begin testing voice recognition software in its screening of refugees seeking asylum.The approach may help speed up the processing of hundreds of thousands of migrants, but some experts fear that the imperfect technology could cause more harm than good.In 1998, Germany began to use speech analysis to help determine the country of origin for asylum seekers.Traditionally, if there are doubts about an applicant’s stated homeland, a recording of them having a conversation will be sent to a linguist for verification.But automated speech analysis isn’t just an altruistic effort to bring more people through the system faster.And it’s a problem for hardliners who fear nefarious characters being smuggled in for the purposes of terrorism.

Arbetsförmedlingens arbete med att bygga om sin sajt har kantats av problem.För ett år sedan avslöjades att den statliga myndigheten lagt ned 100 miljoner kronor på projektet men ändå tvingats dra ned på ambitionsnivån rejält.Från början var planen att skapa en helt ny webbplats men i slutändan blev det bara Platsbanken och ytterligare några kringtjänster på sajten som uppgraderades.Och för att få projektet i mål krävdes, enligt SVT Nyheter, ytterligare 20 miljoner kronor.Totalt har alltså Arbetsförmedlingens utvecklingsarbete gått på cirka 120 miljoner kronor.Den nya Platsbanken introducerades i november och halvåret innan dess låg kundnöjdheten på runt 45 procent.

US law, EU law and post-Brexit what'll UK do lawInterview You know, we know, everyone knows… the EU's General Data Protection Regulation goes into effect May of next year for every member of the European Union, and that will include the United Kingdom.Speaking to The Register at IAPP's Europe Data Protection Intensive 2017 in London, Hughes acknowledged that “the expectation from all involved, and what has been said by the Information Commissioner at this point, is that after [Brexit] the UK is going to need a GDPR mirror bill.”As a regulation [PDF] rather than a directive, come May 2018, GDPR will become the law of the land in the UK, but once Blighty departs from the EU's jurisdiction, we will need “a piece of legislation that mirrors GDPR carefully, so as to leverage the fact that GDPR was already put in place, and also allows for the greatest amount of harmonisation between European data trading partners and the UK.”Making sure the UK meets the EU's adequacy agreements is common sense, said Hughes, as the market will have already had to adapt to GDPR and will have made investments in doing so.“It would be jarring to then try to install another policy framework after that.”

Virtual reality is an incredible technology that can whisk you away from your life, but it doesn’t make the things in your life actually vanish.And sometimes that might mean you’re going to sit on your cat.I sat on my cat because of VR, but thankfully some developers are already working on a tool to address this awful problem.Katie Goode, the creative director of developer Triangular Pixels, has built a kind of harness for her cat that uses one of HTC’s dedicated trackers.The tracker is a tiny, crown-looking device that you can attach to a mug, a toy gun, or any other object you may wish to see while you’re inside virtual reality.In Goode’s case, she wanted to see when her cat decided to randomly take a nap in the middle of her room-scale VR space, and so she stitched together what looks like a tiny (and adorable) backpack for her pet.The result is that anyone wearing the VR headset can now see when the animal comes into the room.“It’s a two part project, one part code and another craft,” Goode wrote in a blog post.“The aim is to give players a warning of unpredictable pets/children when they enter the space, and the potential to of course – actually see their companion in games.”I’m gonna need one of these if my cat ever forgives me:

Restaurants becoming more efficient could help us all become greener eaters in the future.Restaurant food-ordering application Blue Cart launched the Zero Waste Kitchen initiative, which challenges chefs and restaurants around the world to limit waste and improve their sustainability.To help kickstart the movement, it challenged three chefs to improve their sustainability over the next two months and will share their steps with the industry and the world.Although millions of people around the world still struggle to find enough food to eat, many parts of the developed world waste huge quantities of food.Blue Cart claims that its application can help restaurants cut their food waste by around 50 percent, so through its initiative, it’s hoping to take that even further and encourage all restaurants to follow best practices.To that end, it’s created a contest between chefs Jehangir Mehta, Tanya Holland, and Tim Ma.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is a unique sports sedan.While most of the exciting features are related to performance — 505 horsepower, 0-60 in 3.8 seconds, a top speed of 191 MPH — I’m more impressed by the tech features, which are normally found only in luxury cars like the BMW 7 or the Audi A8.They are preparing us for a day when cars are fully autonomous and connected to each other, yet still provide a manual hands-on-the-wheel driving experience when you want to get your heart racing.At the Twin Cities Auto Show today, I managed to get a sneak peak at a car that will arrive in a few weeks for a full hands-on test.One of the most interesting tech features for spirited driving has to do with adaptive cruise control.I’ve tested this automated feature many times in other cars, but on the Giulia, it could be a fantastic addition because of how it works at the full range of speed, around corners and even on the track.As you drive, a sensor looks for the car in front of you.It matches the speed, so if you’re on the highway and the cars are all going 70 MPH, the Giulia will follow that speed.If there’s a stoplight up ahead, the car will slow all the way down to zero.

In Italy, the state is weak and the family is strong, so it’s logical that, when it comes to preserving their histories, fashion houses—often second- or third-generation family operations—do it themselves.What to do with bolts of nineteen-fifties tweed so heavy that to wear it in a modern office would court heatstroke?Or fragile sandals made of straw, from the Fascist period, when leather was needed for soldiers’ boots?Many of Pucci’s color-saturated fabrics hang in four elegant rooms in the historic Palazzo Pucci, in Florence, not far from the National Museum of the Bargello, which occupies the building where Pandolfo Pucci, a distant ancestor, was hanged, after he was caught plotting to murder Cosimo I de’ Medici, in 1560.And Max Mara, aspiring almost to a breadth reminiscent of the Victoria and Albert Museum’s, keeps its archive in a warehouse in Reggio Emilia.The collection includes more than three hundred and fifty thousand meticulously catalogued items, among them thousands of the house’s trademark coats, some noteworthy ensembles of Audrey Hepburn and Carine Roitfeld, and issues of fashion magazines dating back to the nineteen-twenties.

Facebook would "love" to acquire Snap Inc. if shares dipped to $14, FBN Securities analyst Shebly Seyrafi said in a note to clients on Thursday."One of the key points that the bears on Snap may be missing is that we believe that Facebook would love to acquire the company, and could be willing to pay $20B ($14/share) for the asset," Seyrafi writes.Seyrafi reiterated in an email to Business Insider that his position is purely speculative and not based on inside sources, and warned in his note that cofounders Evan Spiegel and Bobby Murphy "may decide not to sell, even when other investors think that this is the right course of action."Spiegel and Murphy collectively wield majority voting rights, and the duo famously rebuffed a $3 billion offer from Facebook a few years ago.Citing reasons why Facebook would still want to buy Snap, Seyrafi pointed to the company's $22 billion acquisition of WhatsApp, which was not generating meaningful revenue at the time.He noted that Facebook has the balance sheet to make a large acquisition, with $30 billion in cash and investments on hand at the end of 2016.Seyrafi said that Facebook buying Snap would "remove one of the very few long-term threats to its business," given Snapchat's dominance among millennials and forecasted growth with older demographics."Several years ago, survey work showed that many teens were disengaging off of Facebook and moving over to Snap, and investors were quite concerned about the long-term ramifications of losing such a key age cohort," he wrote.Seyrafi also pointed to Comcast as a potential Snap suitor, citing its NBCUniversal division's $500 million investment in Snap during the IPO.FBN Securities has given Snap a sector perform rating and $23 price target.Snap has yet to receive a buy rating from any analysts.Get the latest Snap stock price here.NOW WATCH: WPP CEO Sir Martin Sorrell on Snapchat becoming the 'third force' to Google and FacebookLoading video...

Groceries is a $650 billion market in the U.S., which is not overly surprising because, unless you are a robot, you need food.But what very well may change is how you get your groceries and prepared foods.Currently, if you are an average consumer, you go to the supermarket around 1.6 times per week and each time you spend on average around $32, or $51.20 per week.If each trip takes 30 minutes, you incur an opportunity cost of 0.8 times your hourly wage per week (the median hourly wage for people with a Bachelor’s degree or more is currently approximately $24 in the U.S.), which means you essentially pay a 37.5 percent markup on the groceries you buy for going shopping yourself.Given these numbers, and given how boring and repetitive grocery shopping can be, it’s no surprise grocery delivery startups like Instacart have achieved $2 billion valuations.But these services also have downsides: You no longer control when you receive your food, and these services usually have minimum order sizes, making them impractical when you have a specific craving for ice cream right now.But what if you could get groceries in less than two minutes without even leaving your apartment?This time try an amber rather than the lager you just had?In other words, what if you could get groceries quickly delivered to your door with the click of a button or by saying, “Alexa, get me a beer”?This and a lot more will be possible in the next five years as robots become more reliable, inexpensive, and efficient.

More Charts   Snap continued to rally Friday, a day after it staged the largest public debut of the year.In its first two trading sessions, the Snapchat parent has gained as much as 69% above the $17 price of its initial public offering.Analysts and investors are continuing to question whether the company is overvalued and how much ad-revenue share it will be able to steal from digital giants like Facebook and Google.The enthusiasm around Snap could last at least a few more weeks if the history of major IPOs repeats itself."Our composite path of the largest 20 IPOs shown below projects a peak 38 trading days (two months) after the first trade date on average followed by a substantial four-month decline," said Tom Leveroni and Shourui Tian of Nautilus Investment Research in a note.Their composite includes Goldman Sachs' 1999 debut and Alibaba's offering in 2014.They added that the issuing companies and investment banks had been quite good at selling near the market tops."It's well accepted that investors are overpaying for Snap based on expected sales and earnings, but it doesn't seem to matter," Jasper Lawler, a senior market analyst at London Capital Group, said in a note."With such exuberance in the marketplace, Snap's timing is impeccable."Snap's surge in the past two days has created flashbacks of other large tech IPOs.
