Hubble Telescope, 30 Years Observe Space


Friday (4/24) marks 30 years since the Hubble Telescope, the first optical telescope in space, was sent into orbit.

Hubble was launched into orbit by boarding the shuttle Discovery on April 24, 1990 and then being positioned by the shuttle crew.

Australia will Force Google, Facebook to Pay for News Content


Australia says Facebook and Google will soon have to pay news media for their content.

Finance Minister Josh Frydenberg announced Monday (20/4) that the government monitoring organization, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), will launch a mandatory code of conduct next July that will discuss disparities between the news media and internet giant companies in terms of online advertising revenue. Facebook and Google accept almost all online advertisements spent in Australia.

The new rules will be enforced following 18 months of talks with US technology companies about voluntary codes of conduct failing to produce an agreement. Australia will be the third Western country to implement such a plan, following similar steps by Spain and France.

Australian media companies lost millions of advertising revenue in the last month alone due to the Corona virus pandemic.

Facebook issued a statement that the company was  "disappointed " by the government's decision, saying it had started investing millions of dollars in the Australian news industry, while Google said it would continue to work with Australian news media, the ACCC and the government, to compile a code of conduct.

Artificial Intelligence in Technology Will Increase Unemployment?


Many people worry that increasing the use of robots in our daily lives will only increase the amount of unemployment. Many advantages possessed by robots, for example, can work without stopping, never complaining or asking for salary.

An example of using robots that have taken over thousands of human jobs is in the car industry. When we go to a modern car factory, most of the work is done by robots, from printing parts of car bodies, welding and assembling to painting cars.

All of that work was done by humans, but robots can do it more quickly and efficiently.

There are obviously workers or laborers affected by this automation. But This is not the first, and certainly not the last. Still remember the telephone system in the 1950s? When It is to call someone, the owner of the telephone at home picks up the receiver and he will be connected to the operator at the telephone office. This will connect your telephone to the telephone number requested.
