“…numerical presence of women celebrated at Google” was based “solely due to their gender” while the “presence of Caucasians and males was mocked with ‘boos’ during companywide weekly meetings.”

A staunch supporter of the Democratic Party and critic of President Donald Trump, Schmidt still continues to lead the Defense Innovation Board (DIB), even well after the new administration took over in January. This begs the question: should Schmidt’s history of partisan advocacy and condemnation of Trump be a worrisome prospect for the current White House?
Regardless of the answer, Trump’s retention of Schmidt may be emblematic of more than political divisiveness within the current administration, like from “Obama holdovers.” In fact, it may be the opposite of unwanted internal discord and a sign of an underlying ethos for the Trump administration — diversity of thought.

There is just one option that is kind of different:
“…bear more children politicians”
(…which makes in English as much sense as it does in German).
This has been validated by one of my German readers:

What system would AlphaZero employ against Stockfish’s French Defense. Apparently AlphaZero is a big fan of grabbing space, opting for 4.e5, the Steinitz variation. By move 13, the game is already critical for Stockfish. AlphaZero accumulates a great deal of space over the board, and with the center closed it sets out to play on the wings. The two big questions for Stockfish are ultimately, where will your king reside, and what role will your queen-bishop play? AlphaZero has something to say about all of this.

… and not only the chess world!!!
Full article here:
20 years after DeepBlue defeated Garry Kasparov in a match, chess players have awoken to a new revolution. The AlphaZero algorithm developed by Google and DeepMind took just four hours of playing against itself to synthesise the chess knowledge of one and a half millennium and reach a level where it not only surpassed humans but crushed the reigning World Computer Champion Stockfish 28 wins to 0 in a 100-game match. All the brilliant stratagems and refinements that human programmers used to build chess engines have been outdone, and like Go players we can only marvel at a wholly new approach to the game.

Google has announced the latest escalation in its battle to censor “extremist” content on its platforms, a covert campaign to censor conservative voices.
The company plans to hire 10,000 staffers whose sole jobs will be tracking down extremist content that might violate Youtube’s terms of service, according to YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki.
Wojcicki said that “bad actors” had used the video-sharing site to “mislead, manipulate, harass or even harm” others.
Per the Hill, the announcement comes after British Prime Minister Theresa May pressured social media companies to remove radical content after a series of deadly terror-related attacks this year in the United Kingdom.
“The tech companies have made significant progress on this issue, but we need to go further and faster to reduce the time it takes to reduce terrorist content online,” May said in a speech to the United Nations in October, according to reports.
Tech company’s lawyers say it should not have to provide data on how men and women are compensated, as judge appears to take firm’s side on key issues
Google is resisting a legal request to disclose salary records in a class-action gender discrimination lawsuit, marking the technology company’s latest efforts to prevent scrutiny of how much it pays its female employees.
A great number of YouTube videos aimed at children contain creepy, disturbing, violent and sexual content. Some even border on child abuse. It is time to take a closer look at these videos that generate millions of views per day.
Warning: This article contains disturbing images … although they’re all taken from children’s videos.

Slowly but surely, Americans have been conditioned to give up any expectations of privacy in the name of public safety and/or for simple technological conveniences. However, there remains, even today, a tiny sliver of the population that would prefer to not have their every movement tracked no matter how antiquated that makes them look. Be that as it may, per a recent discovery from Quartz, those old-school folks better hope they haven’t been using an Android device for the past 11 months.

“We are working on detecting and de-ranking those kinds of sites – it’s basically RT and Sputnik,” Schmidt said during a Q & A session at the Halifax International Security Forum in Canada on Saturday, when asked about whether Google facilitates “Russian propaganda.”
“We are well of aware of it, and we are trying to engineer the systems to prevent that [the content being delivered to wide audiences]. But we don’t want to ban the sites – that’s not how we operate.”
Silicon Valley venture capitalist, PayPal co-founder, and Facebook’s first investor (even before the CIA dumped money into the surveillance network) Peter Thiel is not about to disclose why he donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the campaign of a state attorney general who recently launched an antitrust probe against search monopoly Google, but many are speculating that it’s all about fueling the breakup of the all powerful Internet giant.
Via the Mercury News…
Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley announced Nov. 13 that his office was investigating Google to see if the Mountain View tech giant had violated the state’s antitrust and consumer-protection laws. The Missouri attorney general said he had issued an investigative subpoena to Google. He’s looking at the firm’s handling of users’ personal data, along with claims that it misappropriated content from rivals and pushed down competitors’ websites in search results.
Jim Stone: The Google AI report is HERE
IMPORTANT: THE FOLLOWING POST IS NOT A MISPERCEPTION OF WHAT THIS GOOGLE AI IS DOING.
There can be absolutely no mistake in this, it is not an idiosyncracy of how the AI is programmed: LOOK AT THIS:
Here’s some clear bias for ya! If you type: The Ashkenazi Jews are guilty, that phrase is considered by the AI to be 84 percent likely to be toxic. The Muslims are guilty: 74 percent likely to be toxic. HERE IS CLEAR PROOF THE AI IS MALICIOUS: When you type THE TRADITIONAL CHRISTIANS ARE GUILTY the AI says that comment is likely to be 3 percent likely to be toxic! That proves it is not just the words used, it is cold hard proof that Google is now on a path to destroy Christians. You can’t have it claiming that saying the Muslims and Jews are guilty is bad, but it is A-OK to say the Christians are guilty. That is obvious damning bias, using the exact same words and only switching out “who” is guilty.
I have been under attack outright since posting the Google AI report. They wiped 700 megs off the cell modem (which temporarily shut me down, and When I just logged in, Google tried to intercept this computer by forcing an “update” even though I never did anything Google related. I have never seen that before. Additionally, people are now saying the site is going to a duplicate until they try for the real one several times. The duplicate has little content and looks “low quality”.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: FOR THE DAMNING EVIDENCE, ALL I DID WAS SWITCH ONE THING – “who” is guilty, and “who” should be jailed. This means that there is absolutely no way this can be an AI mistake, this AI really is malicious, and really is programmed to protect pedophiles, Jews, and Muslims, and destroy Christians and Trump.
Google screwed up BIG TIME. Because they posted a window into the mind of their new Perspective AI, and allowed anyone in the public to send it comments, and see how it will respond. The results of my ambush on this AI prove without question that every last thing the conspiracy theorists feared is going to come true. This is a practically “impossible to get” view of the mind of tyranny, and the minds of those who are out to destroy Trump. The link to this AI test window is at the bottom of this report. Get while the getting is good, Google will probably respond to this post quickly and “fix” the AI for the public, all the while the reality shown here is going to be what is. Take a look at the screen capture!
