Record for Saudi, or record in general…?

'Cause I’m currently paying (CAD) between $10.97 and $14.08 (so USD $7.99 - $10.25) per MWh.

Apple's Wifi router database: Surveilling the Masses with Wi-Fi-Based Positioning Systems (www.cs.umd.edu)

Apple’s huge database, which usually records the locations of Wi-Fi base stations to the nearest metre, has apparently been exploited without hindrance: With little effort, attackers are able to create a ‘global snapshot’ of all the location data of the WLANs recorded there. This allows them - over a longer period of time...

Apple’s got one, so does Google, and Microsoft. They’re common tools for scam baiters tracking down call centres and individual scammers. Pretty effective actually.

Certainly. I’m not saying they’re a good thing; just lending credence to their existence.

Though I’ll note; to use them you need access to the wifi radio carried by the individual you’re tracking. Ie; you’ve already hacked their device.

That comes down to the policies of each individual police department. They’re all different.

Who was the first witness?

I’d only read of Costello, who seemes to have done more to damage the defences case than help them…

Darkassassin07,
@Darkassassin07@lemmy.ca avatar

…no

That’d be like outlawing hammers because someone figured out they make a great murder weapon.

Just because you can use a tool for crime, doesn’t mean that tool was designed/intended for crime.

Do… Do you really think the creators/developers of Stable Diffusion (the AI art tool in question here) trained it on CSAM before distributing it to the public?

Or are you arguing that we should be allowed to do what’s been done in the article? (arrest and charge the individual responsible for training their copy of an AI model to generate CSAM)

One, AI image generators can and will spit out content vastly different than anything in the training dataset (this ofc can be influenced greatly by user input). This can be fed back into the training data to push the model towards the desired outcome. Examples of the desired outcome are not required at all. (IE you don’t have to feed it CSAM to get CSAM, you just have to consistently push it more and more towards that goal)

Two, anyone can host an AI model; it’s not reserved for big corporations and their server farms. You can host your own copy and train it however you’d like on whatever material you’ve got. (that’s literally how Stable Diffusion is used) This kind of explicit material is being created by individuals using AI software they’ve downloaded/purchased/stolen and then trained themselves. They aren’t buying a CSAM generator ready to use off the open market… (nor are they getting this material from publicly operating AI models)

They are acquiring a tool and moulding it into a weapon of their own volition.

Some tools you can just use immediately, others have a setup process first. AI is just a tool, like a hammer. It can be used appropriately, or not. The developer isn’t responsible for how you decide to use it.

A person (the arrested software engineer from the article) acquired a tool (a copy of Stable Diffusion, available on github) and used it to commit crime (trained it to generate CSAM + used it to generate CSAM).

That has nothing to do with the developer of the AI, and everything to do with the person using it. (hence the arrest…)

I stand by my analogy.

Reading that article:

Given it’s public dataset not owned or maintained by the developers of Stable Diffusion; I wouldn’t consider that their fault either.

I think it’s reasonable to expect a dataset like that should have had screening measures to prevent that kind of data being imported in the first place. It shouldn’t be on users (here meaning the devs of Stable Diffusion) of that data to ensure there’s no illegal content within the billions of images in a public dataset.

That’s a different story now that users have been informed of the content within this particular data, but I don’t think it should have been assumed to be their responsibility from the beginning.

I’m ok with that result.

No; double jeopardy.

Darkassassin07,
@Darkassassin07@lemmy.ca avatar

That would certainly be nice. Kinda just tossed the idea out there tho; IANAL as well.

I’m just familiar with the general concept, but looking closer at the details; it seems that may only apply after an actual acquittal/conviction.

You could probably run two simultaneous trials, and only apply the double jeopardy clause once one of the two trials concludes (nullifing/halting the later trial), but I’m not all that sure.

No idea if any case law actually supports this idea.

@Darkassassin07@lemmy.ca avatar

We aren’t talking about seprate crimes, or additional charges; we’re discussing starting a second trial for the same set of charges crimes, while the first trial is still proceeding/on hold.

Darkassassin07, (edited )
@Darkassassin07@lemmy.ca avatar

Well that’s overly hostile for no good reason… Assuming the worst of everyone you encounter is a pretty terrible way to live and just makes the world a shitier place to be.

My response was in relation to filing the same charges again; as in attempting to have two trials for the same charges/crimes, hoping one goes well while the other is hopelessly delayed by a shitty judge. A misunderstanding perhaps. One you could have cleared up…

/edit; and now your downvoting every comment I’ve made. Glad we could have a reasonable discussion. Enjoy your pointless hatred, Pce.

Darkassassin07,

I had, perhaps incorrectly, taken OCs comment to mean filing the same charges again, looking for a second trial that actually proceeds while the first is endlessly delayed.

Totally separate charges would indeed be a separate matter.

There needs to be a way to only get one push notification for every new message in a group chat

I dont know about others, but sometimes I am not able to check my phone, or be fully present in a conversation that I’m part of. Maybe I’m concentrating on work, or driving, and not able to look. It gets distracting when my phone is constantly buzzing and chiming for 5 minutes straight. Muting the chat can help, but if you...

Darkassassin07,
@Darkassassin07@lemmy.ca avatar

I just set group chat notifications to silent.

I still get a notification that’s easy to spot in the tray/bar, but it doesn’t play sound or vibrate, so it’s not distracting unless I’m already looking at the screen.

Skill-based, so it’s not considered gambling.

Same reason arcade games can give out tokens -> prizes.

Voldemort and his death eaters were after Harry, not the school.

It was the school going to war for him, not the other way around.

Something tells me it’s not a daily driver…

People are allowed to have toys.

Darkassassin07,
@Darkassassin07@lemmy.ca avatar

Except in this case, the driver is being called a POS simply for owning a toy and legally driving it down the road.

I could understand if he was actually engaged in some assholery like taking up multiple lanes… But he’s fine.

Darkassassin07,
@Darkassassin07@lemmy.ca avatar

Sure, there are definitely some assholes out there; but all we’ve got here is this picture.

This does not show him being an asshole in anyway; dudes just existing alongside his toy. What’s wrong with that?

A sensible person wouldn’t judge a stranger based on the actions of others.
