Article about AI Better at Finding Skin Cancer than Doctors. See I wasn't making it up!

India Rejection of Facebook's Offer to give them internet

On the political leanings of internet tools, I also had these tabs open, which could be a discussion for a whole different episode, on a Washington Post article about how Google and YouTube searches - in this case for conservative content again - can lead you to alternative news sites.

I haven't read these thoroughly yet, so I will return to them. Here's the full PDF report linked.
