In for a penny, in for a pound. The UK yesterday revealed US surveillance company Palantir had secured a £1 million contract renewal to continue its work on the country’s COVID-19 data-aggregation project. That’s a hefty increase over the initial contract signed just four months ago for a single British pound. NHS England aims to build a COVID-19 data store aggregating all of its patient data. Neural’s Thomas Macaulay wrote about the original deal here, where he explained: Palantir will integrate an array of healthcare information into a single data store through the company’s Foundry software, a data integration tool used by… This story continues at The Next Web

It was just yesterday we reported on a disconcerting bug in Facebook‘s iOS app that would sometimes open your camera in the background while scrolling through your feed.It appears Facebook has fixed the bug; The Verge reports the updated version of the App is now available in the App Store.As a recap, users found out Facebook was opening the camera in the background due to a bug that shows the camera feed in a tiny sliver on the left side of your screen when you open a photo in the app and swipe down.We were able to replicate the issue and noticed it only happened if you had given Facebook permission to use your camera.Obviously, that permission is not meant to extend to the app using your camera in an unsolicited manner.Found a @facebook security & privacy issue.

Google Maps is incredibly useful when you’re navigating a country you’ve never been to before.(I couldn’t have survived a recent trip to Japan without it.)But sometimes, you still need to ask a real person to point you in the right direction, and you might not know how to say the name of the place you’re trying to get to.Soon, though, Google Maps may be able to help with that by speaking the name or address of a location in a country’s native language.Here’s a GIF showing how the new feature works.I particularly like how you can look up additional phrases in Google Translate without leaving Google Maps, in case you want to continue a conversation or just say thanks:

ASUS and Google are currently working on a new project dubbed Tinker Board’.According to reports, the single-board computers (SBCs) are about the size of a credit card.This system focuses on AI inference applications like image recognition.Concerning this “small computer”, AnandTech said“The systems in question are the Tinker Edge T and Tinker Edge R. The former is based on the NXP i.MX8M with an Edge TPU chip that accelerates TensorFlow Lite, whereas the Tinker Edge R is powered by the Rockchip RK3399 Pro processor with an NPU for 4K machine learning.The SBCs officially support Android and Debian operating system, though nothing prevents them from running Linux or other OSes”.

In 2019, EV sales make up only about 2% of global sales.If EVs are going to fulfill expectations, China is a logical place to look for growth, as its market could rise to 40 million in annual sales in the coming decades.In the decade I've been covering the auto industry, I've never seen a bigger mismatch between market expectations for electric vehicles and market realities.The global market for plug-in electric vehicles — and that's plug-in gas-electric hybrids as well all-electric battery vehicles, aka BEVs — stand at about 2% on the eve of Ghosn's benchmark year.While this trend has been great for automakers' bottom lines (SUVs and pickups are highly profitable), it's not going to rescue the planet from climate change.I have three children and I don't want them to inherit blistering winds in summer and savage hurricanes in winter.

Despite a Disney+ launch plagued by technical issues, The Mandalorian is finally here.And yes, it was worth the wait.Set several years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI – The Return of the Jedi, The Mandalorian follows a bounty hunter (played by Game of Thrones actor Pedro Pascal) on the outer rim of the galaxy whose latest mission unearths a secret that could have major repercussions on the universe.(Note: There will be discussion of plot points from the episode in the following text, so consider this a spoiler warning.)As expected, the rifle turned out to be one of the main weapons used by the Mandalorian in the new series, offering a nice callback to a chapter in the Star Wars saga that many would rather forget — and it wasn’t the only reference to the Holiday Special.Early in the episode, the blue-skinned alien played by Saturday Night Live cast member Horatio Sanz — known only as “The Bounty” in the episode’s credits — mentions that he was hoping to be home to celebrate Life Day with his family.

While hipster urbanites favour ride hailing and shared scootersSales of greener cars remain proportionately minuscule in the US – even Elon Musk's shiny Tesla brand is failing to get more gas-loving Americans to ditch their petrol monsters in favour of something electric-based.According to analyst estimates, 4.2 million passenger cars were sold in calendar Q3, equating to a year-on-year decline of 1.3 per cent, so the entire industry was down on its luck during the quarter.Chris Jones, chief analyst for automotive at Canalys, said overall demand for new passenger cars "continues to be weak in the US" and this was "despite a strong economy and low unemployment".There are circa 300 vehicle models from 40 car brands in the US, "too many" for a "declining passenger car market", the analyst added."Car-makers must reset their market opportunity expectations and streamline and refresh their vehicle line-ups, retiring unprofitable models."
