i think i mean you don't look like i mean you can be are you. an r.t.a. a palestinian teenager in too many killed by israeli soldiers of the gaza border with eighteen other protestors when the journalists working with us he was caught up in the fight. we just woke up suffocating. the night you'll. also become the record in the us to stop authorities using amazon's facial recognition tool wrongly matched photos of members of congress with criminal. and tech giants like spotify have still not made a single cent in profit as we look at how this puts their workers and consumers at risk.
even just gone six o'clock here in moscow you watching r.t. international. now israeli soldiers at the gaza border have killed three palestinians including a teenager and wounded eighty according to garza's health ministry people have been demanding the return of territories they claim historically belong to palestine a journalist working with r.t. was covering developments there she was caught in the tear gas fired by the israeli defense forces at the protesters. that. it may. have been. for. the now you're never. going to look at my buddy. you know. we just woke up
from inhaling and suffocating here guys i think it's going to go to you guys one more time by all of the tear gas canisters and despite other life in unison the palestinian protesters continue to protest and are still very very close to the fence participating in the great much of return this is not the first time they have been facing this violence and this excessive force but they have been witnessing this for more than eighteen weeks now most of the injuries today have been injured in the upper part of the body where most of them are in the chest in the stomach conduct in that and the had this is one of the injuries that was shot with live ammunition from that is right the snipers that those palestinian minister of have stated that most of the injuries today are from live ammunition this is a protest that was killed to any his just then people are saying that he's shot killed it's very dangerous for us to be here but despite everything we're still
here covering all the israeli violence against the palestinians more live ammunition we can hear live ammunition and more injuries are coming from the front line right now the israeli military says it responded in the cordons with rules of engagement and are defending the border thank you sam us of using the protester try and breach the ferries there the protests the gaza border have been ongoing for almost four months. u.s. lawmakers in the american civil liberties union are raising the alarm over amazon's
facial recognition tool that after it falsely match photos of members of congress with criminals there are now calls for a ban on its use by law enforcement and identification with that accurate or not could cost people their freedom or even their lives congress must take these threats seriously hit the brakes and enact a moratorium on law enforcement use of face recognition where the american civil liberties union compared photos of all the members of the u.s. congress with a large database of criminal mug shots amazon's facial recognition tool made twenty eight matches all of them being folx with eleven of the mismatches involved people of color prompting additional concerns the union claims the tool has an inbuilt racial bias with forty percent of the mismatches involving people of color that's even though congress which formed that test group pair being overwhelmingly white
we spoke to technology expert roger care about the issue. when the software is trained to recognize faces you have to train our corpus in the corpus is made up of lots of the images of people and you for whatever reason the images are mainly copulation people then you will be better at recognizing them some of the minorities if they weren't well represented in the training center so i think that's the technical side of it but if you're just grabbing any images that you find and many of them will be dark you know absolute people who have darker skin tones may just do just may be harder to see it should be understood that this recognition is not a matter of taking photographs and ripping period to another photograph and saying oh this one looks like that and that's what that's what is human we do know what a computer dollars is though it measures points well back in may the a.c.l.u.
to prevail that amazon is trying to sell its facial recognition technology to government and police agencies that led numerous civil liberties groups to join together campaigning against it and even amazon workers joining the protest however the technology is already being used and tested by some u.s. police departments but next of course comedy as kate says a good expect is a public safety kemas one is already working with government agencies to deploy this technology at the a.c.l.u. we obtain records that show that amazon signed a secrecy agreement with one county to keep details about the technology out of public view they've also invited law enforcement to suggest new features and they are heard free consulting to help the city of orlando build its own system however amazon has a hit back at the a.c.l.u. so they have test saying that it was using low accuracy settings that had been recommended. well eighty percent confidence is an acceptable threshold for photos
of hot dogs chairs animals or other social media use cases it wouldn't be appropriate for identify an individual us with a reasonable level of certainty when he is in facial recognition for law enforcement activities we guide customers to set a threshold of at least ninety five percent or higher for management's point of view what they said was that the train there are law enforcement clients not to use the software or who are making decisions but rather to narrow down the pool to where the shoeman can look at the final results and verify yes these do make sense the same people or they're not the same people amazon is saying well we think it's quite helpful we can find lost children and we can find criminals and things and that's all very positive but then the a.c.l.u. is saying yes but you also may use that as a way to sweep up people there's a possibility of abuse of the technology and there's also the use of it for good.

definitely there's a there's a bubble not just and tech stocks but in the general stock market itself in the u.s. we're already seeing companies like general electric caterpillar and some. the others . wells fargo in financial stress that there are signs of financial fragility as i call it where fronts of germany is really a condition where the cash flow to finance previous debt becomes insufficient and they can't roll over the debt and they can't borrow that debt so then they have to default or sell off some of their assets first or better assets and then they did they default that if they can sell off those assets well that french of fragility in my book systemically jilin the global economy is an indicator of pending financial instability and i think we're approaching that and we may see that emerge

it wasn't verified now fusion g.p.s. will have until august thirty first to sit in for the deposition but it's possible that the revelations that will come out of that hearing will be more scandalous than the dossier itself. has released a suspected islamist terrorist who was deported from germany two weeks ago authorities claim there is not enough evidence against the man although they do say that an investigation is still ongoing some e a do d. is no alleged al qaeda member who was accused by the german interior minister of being one of the some of bin laden's bodyguards he had been living in germany since one thousand nine hundred seven and later applied for asylum there in two thousand and six although his bid was unsuccessful he was arrested and subsequently deported from the country early this month what in twenty ten the administrative court of justice or prevent the deportation of some duty it was concerned he could be exposed to torture and inhumane treatment in tunisia at the time
a number of german politicians said that the court was in the wrong. what free to wait sammy in tunisia is not a problem of german taxpayers to protect and financially equipped and islamised while less and less remains for our own people is not acceptable but it suits chancellor angela merkel's vision for germany is allegedly a hate preacher he has al qaeda training and is said to have been the bodyguard have been lauded and anyone who thinks that we've done something terrible to sami a has to weigh up how long this man has already been in the country and how long we have tolerated this security risk owners that he. should have been left in germany for ten years and secondly. when he was brought back to tunisia where he was deported there is scattered it caused to question the rule of law in germany no one wants this man in germany but it is grossly illegal what happened

a little too costly for a gang of murderous but hedges well ten of them have been captured by the us which really wants to extradite them home and deliver some humane justice if you know what i mean well america needs is a bit of evidence to be sent out of it from britain which is a real shame because the u.k. is a country of conviction political values and it doesn't contain the possible use of the death penalty in any situation there was outrage how could britain stoop so low i'm sure it even the lives of their beatles at risk they had already rescinded their british passports my god is that not punishment enough. in any way of taking care of the likes of the isis beatles while at the same time keeping your values intact well luckily there are a few options. target the bad guys with anonymous drones while they're still in a sandy country that different tone sure is always tricky but if one of your
intelligence agents happens to be standing in the back of the room while someone else from one of those developing nations happens to be pulling out the fingernails well that's different and steve i'd freedom fighters with a picture of bin ladin in that well it's to do some killing that a friend sending terrorists to stand trial in a real court or for a possible death sentence well not just that. facebook has broke the kinds of hundreds of right wing activists in brazil as part of the campaign. to tackle fake news the move those caused outrage in the country with many claiming that facebook is clearly interfering in the upcoming presidential elections later this year the head of the rightwing free brazil movement says that the tech giant's decision to block the counts was a surprise here's how facebook justified its decision these pages and profiles were part of a coordinated network concealed by the use of fake accounts on facebook which it

reach on facebook we used to reach eight million people might even have people they meet only on our facebook page and now we reach one point five to one people and they are doing these because of what's your lectures and also because intern actual actions they are there and somehow they're trying to shore near american elections that they are doing their homework using brazil as. an expert an experiment. finally this hour a powerful drug cartel in colombia has taken out a hit on a german shepherd dog of a canine here is angered the drug barons after sniffing out a huge stash of coke can.
