Facebook-owned WhatsApp pledges to sue users over off-platform 'misbehavior,' AI will be the judge

Facebook-owned WhatsApp pledges to sue users over off-platform 'misbehavior,' AI will be the judge | 11 June 2019 | WhatsApp is threatening users who violate its rules with lawsuits, even if the only evidence of "rule-breaking" exists outside of the Facebook-owned messaging app and the only judge is an AI. "WhatsApp will take legal action against those we determine are engaged in or assisting others in abuse...even if that determination is based on information solely available to us off our platform," the company warned in an ominous FAQ entry posted on Monday. Off-platform evidence of ban-worthy behaviors, including "automated or bulk messaging, or non-personal use [aka political]," could trigger not just "technological enforcement" but legal repercussions, the post warned - and woe betide those users caught bragging off-platform about their ability to evade the rules. WhatsApp boasted it can ban users "based on machine-learning classifiers" alone, and will continue to do so.

The clash was so fierce that it forced the unit to call in air support to "suppress the onslaught of machine gun fire," Army Colonel David Butler, a spokesman for US Forces Afghanistan told Task & Purpose. However, once the 'enemy' was suppressed, the US command realized that the machine gun rounds were fired by "another group of Afghan security forces," Butler said.

Google Protecting Jussie Smollett From 'Disparaging' Searches --Search-engine's autocomplete feature filters out hate crime-related searches | 11 June 2019 | News that Chicago police charged Jussie Smollett with staging a brutal attack on himself was covered on every network and in every major newspaper, but Google is hiding searches of it from its platform due to concerns of "potentially disparaging" the liberal actor. A review of Google's autocomplete function on searches of Smollett found no references to anything regarding the hate crime, even though the company's own data show it is the only reason his name was ever searched. The top suggested searches for Smollett included Empire (a show he in which he no longer has a role), Mighty Ducks (a nearly three-decade old movie he had a small role in as a child), and his wife (who doesn't exist), the Free Beacon found.

"I was sitting in the White House when President Trump said I want his security clearance taken, and I saw the order given. I saw the chief of staff was there, not the current chief of staff, the previous chief of staff."
