Major Shareholders Planning to Force Apple to Reveal Use of AI

Major Shareholders Planning to Force Apple to Reveal Use of AI

Some of Apple’s biggest investors are set to pressure the company tomorrow to reveal its use of artificial intelligence tools (via the Financial Times). Apple’s annual shareholder meeting takes place tomorrow, allowing those with a major stake in the company to put forward proposals. One resolution proposed by the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) asks Apple to disclose its use of AI and any ethical guidelines that the company has adopted regarding the technology. The resolution is set to be supported by Norges Bank Investment Management and Legal & General, Apple’s eighth and 10th-largest shareholders. Norges Bank, which operates the world’s biggest sovereign wealth fund, wrote in its voting disclosures that Apple’s board should account for “social consequences of its operations and products.” Likewise, Legal & General said that Apple “discloses very little about its approach to managing AI-related risks.” Legal & General met with Apple to discuss AI, but it declined to increase transparency around its development and use of the technology. “Apple should be transparent in their uses …

Piers Morgan slams ‘treacherous little weasel’ Prince Harry and sends him major warning | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Piers Morgan has slammed Prince Harry once again in a scathing attack and has sent the royal a major warning. Prince Harry, 39, has been reportedly considering becoming an American citizen, but according to Piers, 58, if Donald Trump regains the presidency, he could stop that from happening. The former president made the hint when he exclusively spoke to the Daily Express US at the CPAC conference in Washington DC, moments before appearing before a packed audience of conservatives who had waited hours for him. Writing in his The Sun column, Piers expressed: “It’s surely inconceivable that he could return to Britain, tail between his legs, having been turfed out of the US? “All recent polls show that most Britons loathe him for his constant attacks on the Royal Family, which caused such distress to the Queen in the last years of her life, and his brother William won’t even talk to him which given he’ll be King one day, could spell even more revenge problems for Harry.” Piers continued: “And if he’s not able …

Prince William ‘working hard behind the scenes’ after two major new announcements | Royal | News

Prince William is back to work full-time after a brief stint away from the public eye. The Prince of Wales has appeared at two major events, making an impassioned plea on the Israel-Hamas war to “see end to the fighting as soon as possible” and unveiling a game-changing new housing initiative designed to help combat homelessness in the southwest of England. This shows he has been hard at work behind-the-scenes despite stepping out of the public eye for a short period following Princess Kate’s admission to hospital for surgery. His re-emergence has been noted across the pond in the US, with CNN’s royal newsletter pointing out: “One of the moves alone would normally have garnered headlines, but both within days of the other shows that while William may have been briefly out of the public eye, he’s been hard at work behind the scenes.” He took some time off to be with his wife, Princess Kate, following her abdominal surgery and to help look after their three young children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. …

Madrid airport set for major £2bn expansion as record number of tourists visit Spain | World | News

Spain’s largest airport is set for a major £2bn expansion as a record number of people visit the country, placing more pressure on its infrastructure.

Trump’s CPAC speech showed clear signs of major cognitive decline — yet MAGA cheered

Trump’s CPAC speech showed clear signs of major cognitive decline — yet MAGA cheered

Donald Trump was in his full glory over the weekend at the annual Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) conference. For his MAGA people, Republicans, and other neofascists and followers, Trump is like a father figure, preacher, teacher, confessor, lover, and god messiah prophet all in one person. In that way, CPAC is Donald Trump’s “church family” – only the church is full of fascism, hatred, wickedness, cruelty, and other anti-human values, beliefs, and behavior. Trump masterfully wields and conducts this energy. Donald Trump’s speech at this year’s CPAC was truly awesome. As used here, “awesome” does not mean good, but instead draws on the word’s origins as in “inspiring awe or dread.” In his keynote speech on Saturday, Trump said that America is on a “fast track to hell” under President Biden and the Democrats and that “If crooked Joe Biden and his thugs win in 2024, the worst is yet to come. Our country will sink to levels that are unimaginable.” He continued with his Hitler-like threats of an apocalyptic end-times battle between good and evil and …

Death in Paradise: who is Sunset Chaser? Ginny Holder shares major hint about identity

An anonymous fan initiated a correspondence, a flirtation even… It could be her, taunting me.”  © Red Planet Pictures/Denis GuyenonRalf Little in Death in Paradise series 13 The commissioner tells Neville: “I could make some calls, however, the most likely explanation is that your fan is simply that,” later confirming that the admirer isn’t Rebecca, saying: “Sunset Chaser is no more dangerous and vicious than …
