AI spots legal problems with tech T&Cs in GDPR research project

Technology is the proverbial double-edged sword. And an experimental European research project is ensuring this axiom cuts very close to the industry’s bone indeed by applying machine learning technology to critically sift big tech’s privacy policies — to see whether AI can automatically identify violations of data protection law. The still-in-training privacy policy and contract parsing tool — which is ...

It’s not a conspiracy theory – your phone really is watching you, research finds

If you’ve ever had the sneaking suspicion that your phone might be watching you, new research suggests you’re not being paranoid. Research scientists at Northwestern University in Boston spent a year trying to determine whether or not smartphone applications are secretly recording our private conversations to send personal data to advertisers. Fortunately, the researchers did not find any evidence to ...

Violent tendencies can be ‘zapped’ out of your brain, new research suggests

Electrical brain stimulation may help reduce people’s inclinations to commit violent crimes, a new study has found. The ‘shocking’ treatment could potentially be used to treat or prevent violent behavior, researchers say. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore used an electrical current to stimulate a part of the brain called the prefrontal ...
