Facebook dating: Should you swipe left or swipe right?

Facebook dating: should we swipe left or swipe right?

I actually think it's a pretty smart use of Facebook. So swipe right.

Are politicians the only ones who need to worry about being targeted by deep fakes?

No. Absolutely not. In fact, I think in the next couple of years we'll see that deep fakes are more of a concern for bullying than for politics because the politicians, we kind of know where they are at all times, so it's harder to fake a video about them.

Is hand recognition the future for payment systems or limited to Amazon?

I definitely think biometric authentication is going to be a huge part of payments. Probably multi-factored biometric authentication, so eyes and fingerprints.

Will Samsung's Galaxy Fold live up to the hype?

No. They fixed all the problems. These foldable phones that broke when the first reviewers got them? But the hype has died down a lot because of the early problems, which may actually be good for them. I'm excited to try one. Maybe I'll have one next week. See you then.

In the southern Italian region of Basilicata, home to the Val d'Agri Oil Centre known as COVA, hydrocarbon processing has undergone a radical digital transformation. COVA boasts one of the world's first fully digitized hydrocarbon plants, but why? Two primary reasons: infrastructure and information. Val d'Agri has the largest onshore hydrocarbon deposit in mainland Europe. The site is expansive and highly advanced, and the plant features a sophisticated sensor system built to capture massive amounts of data. Maintenance checks, equipment monitoring, inspections and measurements are tracked in a fully integrated digital system designed to prevent corrosion and ensure cleaner, more sustainable natural gas processing.

Here's a look at how today's other top producers, the US, Russia, Canada, and Iraq have fared over the past thirty years.

Israeli Elections 2.0 — Israelis go to the polls again today for the second time in five months. Back in April, Prime Minister Benjamin (Bibi) Netanyahu's Likud party (just barely) won the most votes, but failed to form a governing coalition, paving the way for new elections. The big question today is: how many Israelis have actually changed their minds in such a short timeframe? Last time, Likud and the centrist Blue and White coalition each won 35 Knesset seats, and polls show the two parties are still neck and neck, while secular right-winger Avigdor Lieberman — whose dissent in May left Bibi one seat short of a majority — is gaining steam. If this holds, Bibi would not have a majority again, and a complicated rotating premiership, national-unity government, or even a third election, could result. We are watching for results shortly...
