Protesters clash with security forces in Baghdad

Náhled

Dozens of protesters clashed with security forces in al Khlani Square in central #Baghdad on Sunday. Gunshots were heard during clashes, and anti-riot police used teargas and smoke bombs to disperse the protesters. A number of those demonstrating were injured during the clashes, and were treated by volunteer medics on the street, while others were taken to hospitals. Tents belonging to those occupying the square were set on fire on Saturday night by security forces, according to claims by protesters. Mass anti-government protests erupted late last year, when thousands of Iraqis took to the streets in Baghdad and the predominately Shiite provinces in southern Iraq to decry what they call rampant government corruption, poor services and lack of employment. At least 500 people have died under fire from security forces who have used live rounds and tear gas to disperse crowds.

Facebook is spending $130 million to create a 'Supreme Court' that can overrule Mark Zuckerberg — here's everything we know about it (FB)

Mark Zuckerberg at Georgetown University

  • In late 2018, Facebook  CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced an ambitious plan: to create an independent oversight board that could overrule Facebook's content moderation guidelines, and even Zuckerberg himself.
  • The board is independent from Facebook, but Facebook is funding the board's operations to the tune of $130 million.
  • If users believe their content was removed from the service unfairly or without cause, they can appeal to the independent board directly. If it decides to reverse Facebook's decision, that decision "will be binding," Zuckerberg said, "even if I or anyone at Facebook disagrees with it."

With over 2 billion users, Facebook has a major moderation problem on its hands. Whether you're talking about the platform's use by Russian government-backed trolls in the 2016 US Presidential election , or to spread propaganda during the 2016 Rohingya genocide , or when a shooter livestreamed a mass shooting in New Zealand , Facebook has faced moderation issue after moderation issue across the past few years. And the company is well aware of the enormity of its problem. "One of the most painful lessons I've learned," CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote in late 2018 , "is that when you connect two billion people, you will see all the beauty and ugliness of humanity."  As a result, Facebook is establishing an oversight board that it says is outside of Facebook's control, that can ultimately overrule Facebook's own policies on content management. The company has even pledged $130 million to get the board funded and operational, with plans to launch in 2020.  Here's everything we know so far:SEE ALSO:  Facebook refuses to fact-check political ads, and it's infuriating employees and lawmakers. Here's why the issue continues to dog the company. In late 2018, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg published a series of lengthy notes addressing high-level problems his company was attempting to solve. The second such note, published in November 2018, was titled, " A Blueprint for Content Governance and Enforcement ." As dry as it sounds, the note laid out Zuckerberg's plan to address what he described as one of the "most important issues" facing his company.  That issue: How to police a service with over 2 billion users. "The past two years have shown that without sufficient safeguards, people will misuse these tools to interfere in elections, spread misinformation, and incite violence," Zuckerberg said. "One of the most painful lessons I've learned is that when you connect two billion people, you will see all the beauty and ugliness of humanity." As a solution, Zuckerberg proposed something unheard of among the social media giants of the world: An independent board, separate from Facebook, that users could appeal to directly. Facebook uses a combination of human and computer-based moderation tools to police its service. Algorithms attempt to catch the majority Číst dále >>>
