How New Proposed US Restrictions On Chip-making Equipment Will Affect Africa

FEATURED, TECH
By Abel Kawere Some senior officials in the Donald Trump administration have agreed to new measures to restrict the global supply of chips to Huawei Technologies, at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic impacts economic growth around the world. Under the proposed rule change, foreign companies that use U.S chip-making equipment would be required to obtain a U.S license before supplying certain chips to Huawei.However, analysts say the proposed change of trade rules will backfire on U.S companies as the latter will soon develop their own supply chain.  A report by the Boston Consulting Group states further escalation in U.S. export control to Huawei will result in and end the leadership of U.S. in semiconductor and will consequently decouple the US and Chinese technology industries.

Met police admits it lacks records of King’s Cross face matches

Last month, it acknowledged it had shared people's pictures with the managers of the city's King's Cross Estate development. It had previously denied the alliance. In a new report, the Met added that it had only shared seven images and did not believe there had been similar arrangements with other private bodies. It said the pictures were of "persons who had been arrested and charged/cautioned/reprimanded or given a formal warning" and had been provided by Camden Borough Police. The aim, it added, had been to "prevent crime, to protect vulnerable members of the community or to support the safety strategy". But it admitted that it had no record of whether the estate manager's surveillance camera system had ever made facial matches of those involved, nor whether any police actio

China and Taiwan clash over Wikipedia edits

FEATURED, Latest News, TECH
Ask Google or Siri: "What is Taiwan?" "A state", they will answer, "in East Asia". But earlier in September, it would have been a "province in the People's Republic of China". For questions of fact, many search engines, digital assistants and phones all point to one place: Wikipedia. And Wikipedia had suddenly changed. The edit was reversed, but soon made again. And again. It became an editorial tug of war that - as far as the encyclopedia was concerned - caused the state of Taiwan to constantly blink in and out of existence over the course of a single day. "This year is a very crazy year," sighed Jamie Lin, a board member of Wikimedia Taiwan. "A lot of Taiwanese Wikipedians have been attacked." Edit wars Wikipedia is a movement as much as a website.

Facebook can be ordered to remove posts worldwide

FEATURED, TECH
Facebook and similar apps and websites can be ordered to take down illegal posts worldwide after a landmark ruling from the EU's highest court. Platforms may also have to seek out similar examples of the illegal content and remove them, instead of waiting for each to be reported. One expert said it was a significant ruling with global implications. Facebook said the judgement raised "critical questions around freedom of expression". What was the case about? The case stemmed from an insulting comment posted on Facebook about Austrian politician Eva Glawischnig-Piesczek, which the country's courts said damaged her reputation. Under EU law, Facebook and other platforms are not held responsible for illegal content posted by users, until they have been made aware of it - at w...
