    What is Moore’s Law? – Instant Egghead #3

    60-Second Science instant egghead — Explain Big Ideas. Fast. Moore’s Law Well, Moore’s Law? It’s not exactly a law. I mean, not a law of nature that is. I mean, it’s not like gravity. It’s more of a technological trend. Gordon Moore, who was in charge of Intel in the 60’s, basically said that the number of transistors created in optimal minimum cost, doubles every two years. So this is what’s allowed us to go from room-size computers that only governments and corporations can afford to little small gadgets and computers for the masses, in just four decades.

    The dark side of electronic waste recycling

    – [Jim] They had a place where they’d store it right under our noses. They just thought they could get away with it forever, and they could have if it hadn’t been for those trackers. (Jim laughs) – [Reporter] Right now, you’re watching this on an electronic device. Do you ever think about where it’ll end up when you’re done with it? Many devices contain toxic materials and should be recycled very carefully. Sadly, lots end up in landfills but even if you’re diligent and give your electronic waste, or e-waste, to a recycler, that’s no guarantee about what happens next. American recyclers often ship it overseas, frequently to countries…

    How has the law been pushed aside in the age of AI?

    Traditionally the constitutional position is that every individual is free to go about his or her own business without interference by the state and it’s only if a police officer has reasonable grounds for suspicion that an individual then can be subject to police intervention of some kind. But the use of live facial recognition in my view fundamentally reverses that presumption it means that everybody is under suspicion and then it’s up to you to justify that your behaviour is benign. These technologies have the capacity to cause real harm and real adverse consequences it’s absolutely vital that we have legal structures systems and legislative frameworks in place that…
