Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, why scandal? Tue, 20 Mar 2018 08:08:01 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 19235@/talks/discussions

London-based data mining and analytics firm Cambridge Analyrica misused user data from as many as 50 million Facebook users.

The data was obtained by Cambridge psychology professor Aleksandr Kogan and given to the affiliated behavior research firm Strategic Communication Laboratories in a violation of Facebook’s terms of service. Aleksandr created an app called “thisisyourdigitallife,” in 2015, which 270,000 people downloaded. The app gave Kogan permission to access information from the users’ accounts, as well as information about their friends.

Interesting professor, isn't it?

Later appeared reports in the The New York Times and The Observer about how Cambridge Analytica obtained and used the personal information of 50 million users to design voter profiles to target political advertising during the 2016 election.

UK guys

Following material published in the UK Guardian and The New York Times over the past few days, the Committee would like to request that you appear before us to give oral evidence.

As I said in my statement, the Committee has repeatedly asked Facebook about how companies acquire and hold on to user data from their site, and in particular about whether data had been taken without their consent. Your officials' answers have consistently understated this risk, and have been misleading to the Committee.

What is all the fuss?

Actually all scandal scale come not from the Trump related fighting. But as ruling class become afraid that hamsters will suddenly realize purpose and value of Facebook. Facebook who openly and fully transfer all personal and detailed information to US, UK and all the over states. No need to scare hamsters, let them dream about "government protecting your personal data and working in your interests".

Myths about Samsung sensors and dominance Fri, 16 Mar 2018 20:31:03 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 19220@/talks/discussions

Samsung Electronics is planning to increase its production capacity of image sensors and it also set a goal to become the top business in image sensor market by beating out SONY. Number of demands for image sensors is growing very fast as more dual-cameras and cameras are being used for Smartphones and cars respectively.

It is expected that Samsung Electronics will become a clear-cut top comprehensive semiconductor manufacturer in the world as it is setting out to become the top business in image sensor market as well followed by DRAM and NAND flash memory.

According to industries, Samsung Electronics is planning to convert its 300mm 13 line in Hwasung that is used to produce DRAMs into a line that will be used to produce image sensors. Since last year, it has also been working to convert its 11 line in Hwasung that was used to produce DRAMs into a line (named as S4 line) that would be used to produce image sensors. Conversion process of S4 line will be done by end of this year.

Reason why Samsung Electronics is greatly increasing production capacity of image sensor is due to its confidence. Through its internal evaluation, it believes that its technologies are already near that of SONY. SONY and Samsung Electronics are the only ones in the world that developed and commercialized 3-stack image sensors (sensor+ analogue logic+ DRAM) that can process 960 frames per second. Samsung Electronics’ Wireless Business Department is purchasing and using image sensors from both SONY and Samsung Electronics’ System LSI Business Department to implement ‘Super-Slow Motion’ technology of Galaxy S9 series.

It is just small problem with it. Samsung is not truly independent sensor manufacturer. Actually all his best sensors are extremely close copies of Sony sensors. Whole idea was to form such alliance that was not formally announced to scare governments and manufacturers. Canon and their engineers also took good part in alliance success providing their dual pixel technology. The main victims seems to be former Samsung NX cameras lineup users, as due to agreement Samsung was forced to close the line.
