A reclusive tribe in the Amazon finally got hooked up to the internet, thanks to Elon Musk — only to be torn apart by social media and pornography addiction, elders complain.

When Joe Biden entered office, some taxpayers were worried. The career politician was likely going to use his power to pass massive spending bills that would burn up tax dollars but may not actually achieve anything tangible. And many say this is exactly what happened: Biden’s administration has spent trillions of dollars within the last few years.

And we could ask, what do we have for that? Well, it seems we’ve got, among other things, a wide open border, raging crime, rampant inflation, and two wars overseas.

Meta has identified another reason AI might produce rubbish output: Hardware faults that corrupt data. As noted in a paper emitted last week and a June 19 write-up, hardware faults can corrupt data. No prizes for Meta there – phenomena such as "bit flips" that see data values changed from zero to one are well known and have even been attributed to cosmic rays hitting memory or hard disks. Meta labels such "undetected" hardware faults – we'll assume they mean errors that aren't caught and dealt with on the fly – as "silent data corruptions" (SDCs).
