Computer Science, Instagram, Artificial Intelligence
As if computer science teaching in German schools should work better than the basic analogue education system as a whole! At least this was the hope of the Gesellschaft für Informatik.
Of course, she had to realise that what is generally true also applies to the field of computer science: education in Germany is a patchwork of state policies - and in some federal states there are no computer science programmes at schools at all today. No future relevance…
Fortunately, Instagram now wants to create its own offer for children - after all, someone has to do it. The outcry on the net, however, is cheap:
Of course, it is unattractive that the under-13s are now to be advertised not only on television - today on YouTube - but also by Facebook.
But honestly, doesn't it make sense for under-13s to no longer hang out on the (adult) Instagram app but in a dedicated kids' version, like on YouTube?
And sooner or later, artificial intelligence will probably provide the bulk of economic value creation anyway - sending us humans to either Utopia or Dystopia.
Sam Altman from OpenAI therefore raises the perhaps existential question of how we want to position our society and economy for the future? And also, quite profanely, how do we want to tax (human) labour and capital in the future?
But quite apart from all the questions about AI: wouldn't it be quite intelligent if we didn't tax income from (human) labour at all?
The iCare.report is all about technology, media, politics. The weekly email report delivers the absolute essentials from the last episodes of the eicker.TV (German) livestream and is a purely private commentary by Gerrit Eicker on the most important tech news of the week.
