EU to unveil plans to boost European firms, rein in US tech giants

first_imgThe European Commission will on Wednesday launch the first of a raft of proposals to help European companies exploit their rich trove of industrial data and at the same time rein in online giants Facebook Inc, Alphabet Inc’s Google and Amazon.com Inc .The data strategy and artificial intelligence discussion papers are part of a bigger scheme to help European companies better compete with US tech giants and state-aided Chinese companies in the digital world.European digital and antitrust chief Margrethe Vestager and European industry chief Thierry Breton will present the proposals around noon. They will come up with a final draft by the end of the year following feedback from interested parties. The core of the EU’s data strategy is the creation of a single European data market and smaller data markets centered on key industries, according to a draft seen by Reuters last month.Other elements include new rules covering cross-border data use, data interoperability and standards related to manufacturing, climate change, the auto industry, healthcare, financial services, agriculture and energy.One of the possibly controversial proposals calls for doing away with EU competition rules against anti-competitive data sharing.In response to complaints about the power wielded by large online platforms, the Commission is also considering introducing rules to stop these companies from unilaterally imposing conditions for access and use of data or benefiting from this in a disproportionate manner.The discussion paper on artificial intelligence aims to set up a framework to govern the use of this technology used by an increasing number of companies, a draft seen by Reuters showed. The rules would apply to high-risk sectors such as healthcare, transport and predictive policing.More onerous rules known as the digital services act, which could force the tech giants to take on more responsibilities for their actions and content hosted on their platforms, are expected to be announced towards the end of the year.Topics :last_img read more

Delph: I’m not motivated by money

first_img And he insisted he wanted to pay back both the club and chairman Randy Lerner for their support and would not have been tempted to leave by extra cash. “It wouldn’t have sat right with me to leave the club, especially on a free, after the faith everyone involved in the club have shown me. For me, that’s just the way I am,” he said. “Going on a free I would have been better off but I’m a kid from Bradford, brought up on a council estate. I am not motivated by money, I look after my family. “Most people in my situation would be looking to move on. “I was never pushed. Conversations were going on for a while and I just needed to take my time. “For me it was more about repaying the faith in the chairman. “I feel like I’ve give 100 per cent week in, week out. “The chairman has been great. If you can imagine being a young boy and you’re injured and the guy who has invested in me is calling me and giving me a text. You can imagine what that meant to me.” Fabian Delph has revealed he would never have left Aston Villa on a free transfer and values loyalty over money. Delph has made 116 appearances, scoring six goals, since signing from Leeds for £6million in 2009 and is a key man for manager Paul Lambert. He had been linked with a move to Liverpool but insisted he did not speak to any other clubs as his mind was made up to stay at Villa Park. “I’m quite a straightforward person. I would never try to get into something like that,” said the 25-year-old. “We have agents for that. I told him to leave me alone as I want to focus on my football and get myself fit. “He did as he was told. He’s a great guy and a great friend. If I have a bit of respect from someone I seem to get that easy bond with someone. I’ve told him what my thoughts are. “I knew probably about a week into it (two months of talks) I wanted to stay here.” The midfielder has signed a new four-and-a-half year deal at the club and insisted he always saw his future at Villa. Delph suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury in 2010 but has since become an England international, making his debut against Norway last year. Press Associationlast_img read more

What a ride: The best tweets and videos from the Badgers’ basketball season

first_imgAll the big accomplishments meant there were a lot of celebrations along the way.Some were big. Monday night’s loss to Duke in the National Championship is something most Badgers fans would like to forget right now.But even though the Wisconsin men’s basketball team came up short of its goal of a National Title, there were still plenty of other memorable moments throughout the thrill ride of a season.That season featured a school-record 36 wins, back-to-back Final Four appearances for the first time in program history and plenty of selfies of course. And other smaller, more intimate moments. Sometimes it was tough to find the right words to describe all the crazy situations. Luckily, Wisconsin had the sesquipedalian vocabulary of sophomore forward Nigel Hayes — and one stenographer who was up to the task.But seriously – have you ever seen the magical powers of a stenographer? pic.twitter.com/36exonv2CG— Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) March 21, 2015Other times, it was better to let the pictures do the talking.Before we leave for Indy, take a look a the #Badgers’ Road to the Final Four: http://t.co/QQ93CB3SOB— Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) April 1, 2015Some of those images seemed vaguely familiar, like beating Arizona in California to go to the Final Four.Last night was no dream.”The Wisconsin #Badgers move on to Indianapolis. They will RETURN to the Final Four!” http://t.co/o6PtUUU6f1— Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) March 29, 2015Probably about half the season involved Sam Dekker dunking on some hapless opponent.Like the Gophers.Or the Nittany Lions.Wolverines too.Almost forgot Purdue.Now THAT’S the way to score 1,000pts, @samdek1. #SlamDekker #Badgers https://t.co/h9k3w1jror— Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) January 8, 2015When Slammin’ Sammy wasn’t throwing down, Frank the Tank was there to pick up the slack.#Badgers go coast to coast for #ThrowdownThursday. https://t.co/4wzHhhrsSw— Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) December 18, 2014But Frank wasn’t always ripping down rims. He was more gentle other times, although he was still making his defensive assignments look silly.This is why #Badgers 7-footer Frank Kaminsky is a preseason All-American. https://t.co/pXCqDxE0vg— Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) January 1, 2015But those didn’t even come close to qualifying for the play of the year, much less the play of the millennium.That belonged to Dukan.”Play of the millennium.” – @BillWalton | #Badgers #WaltonsWorld https://t.co/FVqXm9xJ2f— Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) December 23, 2014Some other plays didn’t go as well. Luckily, this one happened after Wisconsin had already won.You always have to keep your head on a swivel.Nigel: “Sam, you made a #SCtop10 and an #SCNotTop10 in the same game.” (via @tsand): https://t.co/dA5drro5S5— Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) November 27, 2014And this one doesn’t really fit in anywhere, but it needed to be included.Happy birthday to Bo Ryan!What do you think… “Birthday suit” for the Cal game? pic.twitter.com/ASg7aX9dNO— Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) December 20, 2014And because the 2014-15 season was the year of the Tank, here’s more of Frank’s finest moments.This seems like a fitting way to end.There’s dropping the mic, and then there’s @samdek1 http://t.co/Hgt1vgXeDC #Badgers— Brian Mason (@Brian_Mason) March 29, 2015Just kidding, Frank’s back for more.CONFETTI! NOM NOM NOM http://t.co/RHfRzv1Ewh https://t.co/IzeUk3TO8Q— SB Nation (@SBNation) March 16, 2015 https://twitter.com/dekker/status/585295749371428866 Not to mention a tank full of highlights.That included one of the biggest wins since UW began playing hoops in 1898-1899, when the Badgers took down the previously undefeated Kentucky Saturday night in Indianapolis.center_img The unprecedented campaign all started Nov. 14 with a sellout, a new banner raised to the rafters and win number one. But not everything was going up.Some things came down along the way, including another couple of nets for head coach Bo Ryan. Included in those highlights are four seniors who played in their final game as a Badger Monday night and a junior in Sam Dekker who very well might have donned the Cardinal and White for the last time, as well.They took to Twitter after the tough defeat to offer up their thanks to everyone in Badger nation.last_img read more
