Yes, Uber employees can access your data, but don’t worry, it’s only for “legitimate business purposes.”

In an apparent attempt to assuage privacy concerns following top executive Emil Michael’s suggestion that the company could look into the personal lives of reporters who are critical of it, the company posted an update to its privacy policy Tuesday. In it, Uber assures users their data can only be obtained for a “legitimate” purpose.

The revised program submitted Tuesday to the International Whaling Commission says Japan seeks to catch 333 minke whales each year between 2015 and 2027, down from an earlier target of 1,035 whales — 935 minke and 100 fin and humpback whales, the Fisheries Agency said.

There’s plenty of debate over the singularity — a hypothetical future moment where software becomes self-aware and smart beyond our capacity to understand. Some say it will be a boon for humanity; some foresee an Artificial Intelligence-driven apocalypse

We already knew that Elon Musk was in the latter camp. Now we know that the SpaceX and Tesla entrepreneur thinks the A.I. doom is approaching faster than anyone suspects — within the next 5-10 years

It all started last Friday, when noted virtual reality pioneer Jaron Lanier was featured on publisher John Brockman’s site, Edge.org, discussing the potential threat of artificial intelligence in a post titled “The Myth of A.I.” Following his thoughts are comments fr...
