Did Facebook unknowingly help Donald Trump win the 2016 U.S. presidential election?
We’ll probably never know, but Facebook and CEO Mark Zuckerberg are trying to avoid another instance in the future where that might even be a question.
The company published a blog post on Thursday outlining some of the steps it’s taking to prevent foreign governments from using Facebook to try and manipulate an election, like Russian actors did on Facebook during the 2016 campaign.
A lot of the steps are things Facebook has already talked about‚ like fact-checking stories that show up in News Feed and adding stricter requirements for advertisers who buy political ads on the social network.
The most notable update is that Facebook started fact-checking photos and videos this week in France, in addition to fact checking text stories that people share. “We’re starting in France with the AFP [Agence France-Presse] and will be scaling to more countries and partners soon,” the post reads.
A few other things Facebook is doing:
The social network is notifying people who share fake news that they shared fake news, and also wants to “warn people who try to share it going forward.”
Facebook is close to rolling out the new political ad dashboard that it announced last fall. The dashboard will let people see who is buying what political ads, and the company has already been testing it in Canada. It plans to roll it out in the U.S. this summer.
Facebook is trying to prevent bad actors from getting started at all. The company says it’s blocking “millions of fake accounts each day at the point of creation.”
Will all this work? That’s the big question.
In an interview with The New York Times this month, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the company is expecting that foreign governments like Russia will continue to meddle if they can.
“I feel a lot better about the systems now. At the same time, I think Russia and other governments are going to get more sophisticated in what they do, too,” Zuckerberg said. “So we need to make sure that we up our game. This is a massive focus for us to make sure we’re dialed in for not only the 2018 elections in the U.S., but the Indian elections, the Brazilian elections, and a number of other elections that are going on this year that are really important.”
Vivo V9, the company’s upcoming smartphone was expected to launch in India on March 27th, now the company has confirmed that the phone will launch in India on March 23rd. Detailed specifications and the features of the phone has been listed of official Vivo India site ahead of launch. This confirms 6.3-inch FHD+ 19:9 display, 16MP + 5MP dual rear cameras, 24MP front camera with A.I face beauty, AR Stickers, dedicated dual SIM slots, Android 8.1 (Oreo) with Funtouch OS 4.0. Even though earlier rumor said that the phone will come with Snapdragon 660, the listing confirms Snapdragon 626 for the phone.

This was a test run, at least at first. Eventually, though, these vehicles will be able to autonomously travel and gather data for more than 966 km (600 mi) before scientists will need to recover them.
Each LRAUV is designed with sensors to collect data like water temperature, chemistry, and chlorophyll content as it moves through the ocean, targeting large oceanographic features like eddies (swirling masses of water) and blooms of phytoplankton.
What’s more, these robots can capture and archive samples of seawater in an Environmental Sample Processor (ESP) as they travel. The organisms in those samples will give researchers an idea of which kinds of microbes exist in different places in the ocean, and provide insight into the structure of the eddies in which some live, or which kinds of microbes live through algal blooms.
“When we first talked about putting an ESP in an AUV, I thought to myself ‘this is never going to happen,’” said Jim Birch, MBARI’s lead engineer on the ESP project, in a press release. When MBARI researchers started developing ESPs about 15 years ago, they were about the size of an oil drum. The latest versions are one-tenth the original size, at 20 cm (8 in) to 25.4 cm (10 in) in diameter.
“Now I really think this is going to transform oceanography by giving us a persistent presence in the ocean — a presence that doesn’t require a boat, can operate in any weather condition, and can stay within the same water mass as it drifts around the open ocean,” Birch added.
An image that shows the front and back of Huawei P20 Lite has been shared by VentureBeat. The device has a similar design to the standard P20, complete with a display notch, dual rear camera setup, and on-screen navigation buttons. One notable change is that the P20 Lite’s fingerprint reader is on the back of the phone, whereas on the P20, it’s below the screen.
In terms of specs, we’re told to expect a 5.6-inch 2550×1080 display on the Huawei P20 Lite along with an octa-core Kirin 659 processor and dual 16MP rear camera setup with Leica branding an hybrid zoom. Other features are said to include 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 3,520mAh battery, and Android 8.0 Oreo running below Huawei’s custom EMUI 8.0 user interface.
There are no pricing or launch details for the Huawei P20 Lite yet, but Huawei is hosting an event on March 27, so we may learn more about the device’s release there. While this device may be a “Lite” version of Huawei’s flagship P20, this leaked spec list suggests that it could still be a solid device, especially if Huawei gives it an aggressive price tag.
New report details AirPods 2 features and expected release date time frame. Beyond this update, Apple also has updates planned beyond 2018, with one also said to already be in the pipeline for 2019, allowing Apple to offer a 12 month refresh cadence similar to the iPhone lineup.

The largest simulation of the cosmos ever run has boldly taken us where we have never gone before: the formation of the universe. Illustris: The Next Generation (IllustrisTNG) utilized new computational methods to achieve a first of its kind universe-scale simulation. The data-packed simulation has already fueled three papers, which were published Thursday, Feb 1, in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
A single simulation run required 24,000 processors and a timespan of more than two months. Germany’s fastest mainframe computer, the Hazel Hen machine at the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart, ran the simulation twice. “The new simulations produced more than 500 terabytes of simulation data,” Volker Springel, principal investigator from the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, said in a press release. “Analyzing this huge mountain of data will keep us busy for years to come, and it promises many exciting new insights into different astrophysical processes.”
IllustrisTNG made these predictions by modeling the evolution of millions of galaxies in a representative region of a universe. The cube-shaped area has sides that are nearly 1 billion light-years long. In the previous version (called Illustris), the model area’s sides were only 350 million light-years long. The updated program also introduced some crucial physical processes that had not been included in previous simulations.
These updated features allowed IllustrisTNG to model a universe remarkably similar to our own. For the first time, the clustering patterns of the simulated galaxies demonstrated a high degree of realism in comparison to the patterns we see from powerful telescopes, such as those at the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.
If the program’s verifiable predictions about dark matter, galaxy formation, and magnetic fields continue to prove accurate, we’ll be able to put greater stock in the insights it provides about processes we haven’t been able to observe with even the most advanced telescopes.
“When we observe galaxies using a telescope, we can only measure certain quantities,” Shy Genel, a scientist at the Flatiron Institute’s Center for Computational Astrophysics who worked on the development of IllustrisTNG, said in the press release. “With the simulation, we can track all the properties for all these galaxies. And not just how the galaxy looks now, but its entire formation history.”
By mapping out the histories of model galaxies, we may get a glimpse of what the Milky Way looked like as Earth came into being. We could even get an idea of how our galaxy might evolve billions of years from now.
In the years to come, this simulation might prompt some astronomers to simply adjust their telescopes to look for newly predicted stellar processes. For example, the simulation of the cosmos predicted that galaxy collisions that form larger galaxies should produce faint stellar light. Specific details about where to look for this background glow could allow astronomers to confirm their theories about these intergalactic events.
