Amazon fined $47 million for hoarding kids’ data, spying through cameras
Amazon has agreed to pay more than $US30 million ($47 million) in fines to US regulators following allegations of historical privacy abuses, including retaining data collected from children after being explicitly asked to delete it. In one case, the US Federal Trade Commission had alleged that, before mid-2019, the company failed to remove voice recordings, transcriptions and precise location data collected from children via the Alexa voice assistant even after parents requested their removal. In another case, it said the company’s Ring video doorbells and security cameras had unreasonable privacy practices in January 2020. According to the FTC, Ring employees and contractors were given unrestricted access to view videos taken at users’ homes. In both cases, the regulators specifically frame the breaches as designed to train Amazon AI and algorithms at the expense of users’ privacy, placing the fines within a trend of lawmakers around the world cracking down on unnecessary data collection and retention. ...

Meta on Monday was fined a record 1.2 billion euros ($1.3 billion) and ordered to stop transferring data collected from Facebook users in Europe to the United States, in a major ruling against the social media company for violating European Union data protection rules. The penalty, announced by Ireland’s Data Protection Commission, is potentially one of the most consequential in the five years since the European Union enacted the landmark data privacy law known as the General Data Protection Regulation. Regulators said the company failed to comply with a 2020 decision by the European Union’s highest court that Facebook data shipped across the Atlantic was not sufficiently protected from American spy agencies. ...

It may also provide expertise in market investigations into emerging services and practices, to help ensure that the DMA is future-proof.

BRUSSELS — Europe got closer to a full-on ban on facial recognition in public spaces and reining in ChatGPT after lawmakers adopted a strengthened version of the EU's artificial intelligence rulebook on Thursday. Members of the European Parliament in the internal market and civil liberties committees passed their compromise text for the Artificial Intelligence Act, first floated by the European Commission in April 2021. The text was backed by an 84-7 vote, with 12 abstentions. MEPs agreed on a blanket ban on remote biometric identification — AI-aided techniques, such as facial recognition, to recognize individuals from pictures or footage — in public venues, both in real-time and after the fact, in a departure from both the Commission's original proposal and the position backed in Council by EU member countries. The issue was hotly debated among leading lawmakers thrashing out the text, with the center-right Christian Democrats fiercely opposing the ban. ...

Building Trustworthy AI
We will all soon get into the habit of using AI tools for help with everyday problems and tasks. We should get in the habit of questioning the motives, incentives, and capabilities behind them, too. Imagine you’re using an AI chatbot to plan a vacation. Did it suggest a particular resort because it knows your preferences, or because the company is getting a kickback from the hotel chain? Later, when you’re using another AI chatbot to learn about a complex economic issue, is the chatbot reflecting your politics or the politics of the company that trained it? ...

New technologies come with new risks, and the impact of cyber-attacks through digital products has increased dramatically in recent years. Increasingly, consumers have fallen victim to security flaws linked to digital products such as baby monitors, robo-vacuum cleaners, Wi-Fi routers and alarm systems. For businesses, the importance of ensuring that digital products in the supply chain are secure has become pivotal, considering three in five vendors have already lost money owing to product security gaps. The European Commission's proposal for a regulation, the 'cyber-resilience act', therefore aims to impose cybersecurity obligations on all products with digital elements whose intended and foreseeable use includes direct or indirect data connection to a device or network. The proposal introduces cybersecurity by design and by default principles and imposes a duty of care for the lifecycle of products. The Council and Parliament are currently working on defining their respective positions. Second edition. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages in the legislative procedure.

- Once approved, they will be the world’s first rules on Artificial Intelligence - MEPs include bans on biometric surveillance, emotion recognition, predictive policing AI systems - Tailor-made regimes for general-purpose AI and foundation models like GPT - The right to make complaints about AI systems **To ensure a human-centric and ethical development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Europe, MEPs endorsed new transparency and risk-management rules for AI systems.** On Thursday, the Internal Market Committee and the Civil Liberties Committee adopted a draft negotiating mandate on the first ever rules for Artificial Intelligence with 84 votes in favour, 7 against and 12 abstentions. In their amendments to the Commission’s proposal, MEPs aim to ensure that AI systems are overseen by people, are safe, transparent, traceable, non-discriminatory, and environmentally friendly. They also want to have a uniform definition for AI designed to be technology-neutral, so that it can apply to the AI systems of today and tomorrow. ...

**Key Highlights** Nym protects privacy at the network layer by encrypting and relaying your internet traffic through a multi-layered network called a mixnet. In each layer of the mixnet, mix nodes mix your internet traffic with that of other users, making communications private and hiding your metadata (IP address, who you talk to, when and where, and more). The Nym mixnet is incentivized and decentralized. Users pay a fee in NYM to send their data through the mixnet. By pledging an initial bond of NYM, anyone can run a mix node. Node runners are then rewarded in NYM tokens based on good quality of service, doing the work of mixing packets and providing privacy for the end users. This is called ‘proof of mixing,’ similar to how Bitcoin rewards miners for mining new blocks. The reward mechanism enables the mixnet to scale and decentralize. Nym can work with any application. From Bitcoin to ZCash, no current “layer 1” blockchain provides “layer 0 privacy” for the peer-to-peer broadcasts used in every transaction. Nym can provide network-level privacy for any blockchain and other generic applications. From Bitcoin to instant messaging, developers can build their applications on top of Nym for network layer and metadata protection of their users. ...

Is the grass greener on the other side? We’re not sure, but the sky is most certainly bluer. It’s been over a year since Elon Musk announced his bid to buy Twitter, and those who opposed the sale have tried setting up shop on platforms like Mastodon, Substack Notes, T2… but none of these Twitter alternatives have really captured lightning in a bottle like Bluesky. Bluesky remains invite-only in its beta, but as more people get on the site, the hype around it is growing — though as we know from apps like Clubhouse, the hype might not last forever. In the meantime, Bluesky now has around 50,000 users, but according to estimates from, the app has been downloaded more than 375,000 times. So many people are trying to get an invite that they’ve started popping up for sale on eBay (we would advise against making that purchase). ...

A financially-motivated North Korean threat actor is suspected to be behind a new Apple macOS malware strain called RustBucket. "[RustBucket] communicates with command and control (C2) servers to download and execute various payloads," Jamf Threat Labs researchers Ferdous Saljooki and Jaron Bradley said in a technical report published last week. The Apple device management company attributed it to a threat actor known as BlueNoroff, a subgroup within the infamous Lazarus cluster that's also tracked under the monikers APT28, Nickel Gladstone, Sapphire Sleet, Stardust Chollima, and TA444. The connections stem from tactical and infrastructure overlaps with a prior campaign exposed by Russian cybersecurity company Kaspersky in late December 2022 likely aimed at Japanese financial entities using fake domains impersonating venture capital firms. ...

**Abstract:** This report provides an overview of the robotics industry in Europe, as well as a description of the definitions, typologies and main differences between industrial and service robots. The aim is to build up a stronger and updated knowledge of research questions, approaches and data that scholars and policy makers could use to study robotics around the world, and more specifically in Europe. It also identifies the necessary actions to merge heterogeneous data into a meaningful and consistent dataset to estimate the EU shares of robotics from the demand and supply perspectives, and for both industrial and service robots. Complementing these data with other sources to enhance the value and significance of the overall estimation exercise of the EU robotics market shares, provides a comprehensive overview of the production and adoption sides for both industrial and service robots. The three main objectives of the report are: to build a dataset including the market shares of robots in the EU; to describe the main trends that can be extracted from data; and, to sketch a conceptual framework to contextualise the results from the first two objectives. ...
