Viet Nam NewsWASHINGTON — Facebook launched an offensive on Thursday to suppress the spread of misinformation about vaccines on the 2.3-billion-member social network.

The company has faced pressure in recent weeks to tackle the problem, amid outbreaks of measles around the United States attributed to growing numbers of parents who refuse to vaccinate their children.

US lawmakers have decried the higher incidences of preventable diseases in the wake of a movement against child vaccination, in large part due to rumours they can cause health or developmental issues. Continue reading “Facebook launches offensive to combat misinformation on vaccines”

The race for advanced artificial intelligence has already started. A few weeks ago, U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order creating the “American AI Initiative,” with which the United States joined other major countries pursuing national strategies for developing AI. China released its “New Generation Plan” in 2017, outlining its strategy to lead the world in AI by 2030. Months after that announcement, Russian President Vladimir Putin declared, “Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world.” Continue reading “Whoever Predicts the Future Will Win the AI Arms Race”

Tin giả

Chào các bạn,

Ngày nay có một vấn đề cực lớn cho mọi quốc gia, đó là tin giả (fake news) tràn ngập và công nghệ thông tin giúp cho đạo tặc có cách dùng tin giả tài giỏi vượt bậc mà cho đến nay vẫn chưa có cách xử lý thỏa đáng. Và các bạn có đầu óc, người trí thức, cần phải biết vấn đề và tự xử lý cho bạn, vì người trí thức là chất xám cho đất nước. Chúng ta có nghĩa vụ làm chất xám cho đất nước.

Tin giả, tức là tin cố tình sai sự thật. Mình nói “cố tình” là vì đôi khi một ký giả làm việc rất kỹ lưỡng và chuyên nghiệp, nhưng bản tin vẫn có thể có một vài sai sót. Đó là điều thường xảy ra. Khi ký giả có thông tin chính xác hơn, thì thường bổ túc cập nhật bản tin cũ và đôi khi xin lỗi. Nhưng khi người viết tin cố tình viết sai, hay viết thuần túy một chiều (bỏ hẳn chiều kia), thì đó là tin giả, tức là cố ý làm bản tin bị sai sót. Continue reading “Tin giả”
