“While the U.S.-China rivalry has been showing signs of turning into a zero-sum game, deciding whether to join the chip alliance is a really complicated issue even for the Yoon administration, which supports the U.S.' Indo-Pacific strategy against China while seeking to build a bilateral relationship of mutual respect with Beijing. The previous strategic ambiguity between the U.S. and China meant we would not suffer a loss or pay a cost while benefiting from them, but that era has ended and now we are facing a situation in which that we have to put up with a loss or shoulder expenses. Should Korea not join the alliance, Japan would try to fill our absence, and in consideration of that, we will be in a position to accept the U.S. invitation.”

“Ten years ago, diesel cars accounted for 75% of new sales there. Today they make up just 2.3%. Two-thirds of all new cars sold there [Norway] in 2021 were EVs and the predictions are that proportion will reach 80% this year. Ye olde internal combustion engine seems destined for extinction in that particular part of the frozen north.”

“The Caribbean has a huge potential to become a very good place for entrepreneurship, and also be the next Singapore. The reason is, Caribbean states are very close to the United States, which I think is very important. But also it is important you are not in the United States. If you are in the United States, you are going to fall into a lot of very strict regulation, and also taxation. In the U.S., the regulatory environment is not good to cryptocurrency.”

“There's a component of it that's sensitive to Bitcoin price but in theory, the difficulty adjustment should allow miners to make money regardless of what the Bitcoin price is. However, if Bitcoin does 'do its thing' and rises to the upside, then the bond's appeal will rise manifold. Those bonds are going to trade on the open market at a much higher rate than six and a half percent. They'll trade at a lower yield at a higher price because the six and a half will be extremely attractive so people will bid up the price of those bonds and the yield conversely will decline.”

“Iranian hackers had identified a failure in Israeli understanding about cyber conflict. They realized that they do not need to attack a government agency, which is much more protected, but could easily attack small, private companies, with less sophisticated security, that control enormous amounts of information, including financial or intimate personal information about many citizens.”

“We think the best approach is not to clamp down or ban these things. With crypto-based activities, it is basically an investment in a prospective future, the shape of which is not clear at this point. But not to get into this game, I think risks Singapore being left behind. Getting early into that game means we can have a head start, and better understand its potential benefits as well as its risks. If and when a crypto economy takes off in a way, we want to be one of the leading players. It could help create jobs, create value-add, and I think more than the financial sector, the other sectors of the economy will potentially gain.”

“The AI community has not yet adjusted to the fact that we are now starting to have a really big impact in the real world. That simply wasn't the case for most of the history of the field - we were just in the lab, developing things, trying to get stuff to work, mostly failing to get stuff to work. So the question of real-world impact was just not germane at all. And we have to grow up very quickly to catch up.”

“We need to reduce the blast radius. We need to manage the battlefield. Cyberattacks on chip manufacturers are on the rise. There's a lot that can be done ... to not only prevent attacks but to mitigate them as they happen. Companies can limit the blast radius by setting up choke points throughout the network that isolate the spread of the attack and protect the core assets. For example, take semiconductors, we don't mind as much if someone reads someone's emails. What we want is to stop them gaining access to the assets that produce the wafers. This is done by anticipating the hacker's next move. We want to identify them, hunt them, and eradicate them without impacting operations. We can actually lure the threat actor to waste time in a different network segment where we can do no harm while we shore up defenses around the core assets.”

“Over time, I hope that we are seen as a metaverse company and I want to anchor our work and our identity on what we're building towards. We're now looking at and reporting on our business as two different segments, one for our family of apps, and one for our work on future platforms. And as part of this, it is time for us to adopt a new company brand to encompass everything that we do, to reflect who we are and what we hope to build.”

“Good faith criticism helps us get better, but my view is that we are seeing a coordinated effort to selectively use leaked documents to paint a false picture of our company [Facebook].

“This recent activity is another indicator that Russia is trying to gain long-term, systematic access to a variety of points in the technology supply chain and establish a mechanism for surveilling - now or in the future - targets of interest to the Russian government. Fortunately, we have discovered this campaign during its early stages, and we are sharing these developments to help cloud service resellers, technology providers, and their customers take timely steps to help ensure Nobelium is not more successful.”

“It's the next evolution of connectivity where all of those things start to come together in a seamless, doppelganger universe, so you're living your virtual life the same way you're living your physical life. Tech companies still have to figure out how to connect their online platforms to each other. Making it work will require competing technology platforms to agree on a set of standards, so there aren't people in the Facebook metaverse and other people in the Microsoft metaverse.”

“One of the biggest initial advantages potentially with this launch system is that it will provide South Korea the ability to put satellites into space that provide capability to have a system of surveillance over North Korea - and this will give south Korea the ability to monitor potential North Korea launches of ballistic and cruise missiles. In the next few years, South Korea plans to develop and start operating a series of space launch vehicles from the NARO Space Centre, and these launch vehicles will be putting small vehicles into lower orbit, further increasing South Korea's space defence capabilities. That's the plan and this is the first stage.”

“The Nuri didn't perfectly attain its goal, but it has done a very good job in its first launch. If we check things and make up for what we lacked today, we will surely achieve a perfect success in our second launch in May next year. Satellites are increasingly used not only for broadcasting, communication and GPS, but also for environmental and disaster responses. We already manufacture and operate practical satellites on our own, but we have had to use launch vehicles from other countries. Now we can put our satellites into space with our own launch vehicles. Now, a new era of space exploration has opened. Over the past decade, the global space industry has more than doubled, and space development itself has become an industry. It is already a reality that ordinary people are sightseeing in space. A country that leads in space development will lead the future. The government will invest in the long-term so that Korea can become a space powerhouse.”

“The shortage of chips may reduce car production by about 2 million units throughout the year in China. Some products such as industrial sensors, basic industrial software, special raw materials, and precision instrumentation which rely heavily on imports will also be hurt further with "natural calamities and man-made misfortune. From May to September this year, China's automobile production and sales fell for five consecutive months. Based on this speculation, the shortage of chips may reduce production by about 2 million units throughout the year. A single chip can affect the production and sales of millions of cars a year, and such fragility is a concentrated reflection of the ecological fragility of China's manufacturing supply chain.”

“[Facebook algorithms] prioritise the spread of lies laced with anger and hate over facts. Facebook has become the world's largest distributor of news, yet it is biased against facts, it is biased against journalism … If you have no facts, you can't have truths, you can't have trust. If you don't have any of these, you don't have a democracy.”

“Big techs' large networks could lead to a rapid and large-scale adoption of stablecoins. Data from payment transactions would enhance their ability to exploit the DNA loop [data-network-activities].

“When Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp temporarily went offline this week due to a technical problem, we saw just how dependent we have already become on these services for so many everyday activities. It was a shock to suddenly be without them. The company would probably see this as evidence that our lives are too intertwined with its services for them to ever go away. But, as the company has proven time and time again, our interests and its interests are rarely aligned. We should instead recognise that allowing a rapacious company to design and own critical infrastructure with zero accountability is the worst of all possible options.”

“I'm here today because I believe Facebook's products harm children, stoke division and weaken our democracy. Congressional action is needed. They won't solve this crisis without your help. As long as Facebook is operating in the shadows, hiding its research from public scrutiny, it is unaccountable. Until the incentives change, Facebook will not change. Left alone, Facebook will continue to make choices that go against the common good. Facebook hides behind walls that keep researchers and regulators from understanding the true dynamics of their system.”

“Because we have a field team, we were able to mitigate some of the more serious risks today's outage presented. But that might not have been the case for hundreds of other hotlines around the world. Today was a big reminder: Technologies are tools, not solutions. WhatsApp is a very important tool for our service. Usually we have phone operators receiving messages from women all day via WhatsApp, but that was not possible, and women could not contact us.”

“The bottleneck in fact is in Southeast Asia, especially Malaysia, because for a while the factories were all shut down. The problem was especially acute with auto chip packaging, with companies in Malaysia providing services not offered by Taiwanese firms. Now the focus is on Malaysia resuming production as soon as possible. I know that Malaysia started to restore production capacity in early September, and now the production capacity has returned to about 80%, so if their capacity can slowly come back, this problem can be slowly dealt with.”

“Some member states observed malicious cyberactivities, collectively designated as Ghostwriter, and associated these with the Russian state. Such activities are unacceptable as they seek to threaten our integrity and security, democratic values and principles, and the core functioning of our democracies.

“What you saw here was real recklessness. The Hafnium attack on Exchange [Microsoft Exchange] was in complete contrast to the Russian exploitation of SolarWinds software for espionage purposes.

“The paper [Wall Street Journal] had not presented the whole picture on the most difficult issues we grapple with as a company - from content moderation and vaccine misinformation, to algorithmic distribution and the well-being of teens. The reporting was based on selective quotes from internal reports designed to hold up a mirror to ourselves and ask the difficult questions about how people interact at scale with social media. These are serious and complex issues and it is absolutely legitimate for us to be held to account for how we deal with them. [But] at the heart of this series is an allegation that is just plain false: that Facebook conducts research and then systematically and willfully ignores it if the findings are inconvenient for the company. Facebook understands the significant responsibility that comes with operating a global platform. We take it seriously, and we don't shy away from scrutiny and criticism. I wish there were easy answers to these issues, and that choices we might make wouldn't come with difficult trade-offs … [but] that is not the world we live in.”

“While it is accepted that many devices including smart phones can record third party individuals, it is generally the case that the camera or the phone is visible as the device by which recording is happening, thereby putting those captured in the recordings on notice. With the glasses, there is a very small indicator light that comes on when recording is occurring. It has not been demonstrated to the DPC and Garante [Italian Data Protection Regulator] that comprehensive testing in the field was done by Facebook or Ray-Ban to ensure the indicator LED light is an effective means of giving notice.”

“It meant that a lot of game developers in China shifted their priorities to themselves, either developing games just for the domestic market, or to try to reach the global market industry, with localised titles or specialised titles that launch around the world first, and then come back into the mainland. Gaming is part of the culture, and China is the largest games market in the world. This isn't something that is suddenly disappearing overnight for minors, even though the limits are extremely harsh. It's still part of the culture. Parents of minors today have grown up with gaming, so they'll be more liberal minded and may be more open to letting their children use their accounts to play games.”

“As I understand it, the proposed code seeks to require selected digital platforms to have to negotiate and possibly pay to make links to news content from a particular group of news providers. Requiring a charge for a link on the web blocks an important aspect of the value of web content. To my knowledge, there is no current example of legally requiring payments for links to other content. The ability to link freely - meaning without limitations regarding the content of the linked site and without monetary fees - is fundamental to how the web operates, how it has flourished till present, and how it will continue to grow in decades to come.”

“I’ve never in my life seen a project move at such pace. We have teams of people working 12 hours a day to make this happen and to try to solve this industry problem. One of the challenge with testing so far is the time it takes for agents to actually verify the tests, number one, and number two, the proliferation of fake tests. Testing is very much like money – the whole belief in the system comes down to how much confidence all the actors can have in it. We need confidence in test results and vaccination results. Then we can start opening up the restrictions on borders.”
