Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg intends to live another 50 years.

Billionaires like Peter Thiel and Larry Page are also investing large sums into research that could extend human life expectancy.

Bloomberg's billionaire founder and CEO Michael Bloomberg has said that he's aiming to live until he's 125-years-old — something no human has ever done before.

The former New York City mayor told Business Insider at Bloomberg's new European headquarters in London on Tuesday that he intends to live another 50 years.

Bloomberg, who isn't the only billionaire pursing longevity, made his comments after being asked whether he intends to run US president in the future.

"I'll do everything I can to help our government and work on my foundation.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and his team have revealed the designs for the 250,000 square foot Union Square Tech Hub.

The hub, which was first announced in December, will include 58,000 square feet of fluid space for startups and a 36,500 square foot tech training center.

Partners in the training program include the New York City Foundation for Computer Science Education, General Assembly, Per Scholas, FedCap, Code to Work, and Coalition for Queens.

The anchor tenant will be Civic Hall — a 1,000-member work and event space that focuses on what founder and CEO Andrew Rasiej said is the idea that technology can be used to support the public good.

De Blasio unveiled the designs at an event this afternoon at the New York City headquarters of adtech company AppNexus, where he also talked about his hopes for the space.

After praising NYC s tech community for being the most diverse tech community in the country and the most socially conscious tech community in the country, de Blasio said the hub is about making sure more and more New Yorkers benefit from this extraordinary tech ecosystem.

BlackBerry's biggest fan ... Rudy Giuliani

Sketch So, what, if anything, keeps former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani awake at night?

You gotta always worry about a nation with an insane leader, he told startled attendees.

An old friend of BlackBerry CEO John Chen, Giuliani told a surprise audience of some 400 BlackBerry partners, journalists and analysts at BlackBerry s annual Security Summit in NYC that cybersecurity was his last crusade.

Now all of this is – and Giuliani made an arc shape with his hands – here.

A good way to tell whether a "cybersecurity expert" truly knows something about cybersecurity is to take a look at their website, assuming they have one.

Does the site look like something coded for a middle school project?

If so, you might want to be skeptical.

If, for example, the newly appointed informal cybersecurity advisor to President-elect Donald Trump has a company website that looks like it was built after a handful of coding classes, it makes sense to doubt his expertise.

Folks on the internet immediately denounced the cybersecurity chops of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who was announced as an informal cyber advisor to Trump on Thursday.

Giuliani runs a management firm called Giuliani Partners that houses a company branch allegedly dealing with security services.

Michael Bloomberg, the richest billionaire in the media business, returned to his eponymous media company in September 2014, eight months after stepping down as mayor of New York City.

One notable sign of his influence on the publication: Michael Bloomberg doesn t appear on Bloomberg s Billionaires Index.

FORBES pegs his net worth at $45.7 billion.

Bloomberg cofounded his financial data company in 1981 with Charles Zegarand Thomas Secunda, both of whom are now billionaires as well thanks to their minority equity stakes in Bloomberg LP.

The company expanded into business news coverage and has more than 2,000 reporters around the world.

In 2009, Bloomberg LP bought Business Week magazine from McGraw Hill for a reported $5 million plus assumption of debt.

A Wisconsin union ironworker has released a powerful ad to announce his plans to run against Republican house speaker Paul Ryan during next year’s midterm election.

Randy Bryce, a US Army veteran, cancer survivor and “lifelong resident of southeastern Wisconsin”, is seeking the Democratic nomination for Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District, which Ryan has represented for nearly 20 years.

The two-and-a-half-minute ad was created by Acres, a small NYC shop that’s created political ads for the likes of sen. Bernie Sanders, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio and John Fetterman, the mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania.

Bryce uses his screen time to criticize the Republicans’ American Health Care Act, the controversial bill that Ryan helped push through the House last month.

In the video, Bryce’s mother explains what it’s like living with multiple sclerosis and states that she’s on 20 drugs for the disease.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that there are thousands of people like her that don’t have what she has,” Bryce says in the video.

EXCLUSIVE: Rudy Giuliani announces he's forming a cyber security group on behalf of Trump administration pic.twitter.com/LC20pYW02d

Cybersecurity, or more specifically hacking, was credited with helping to hand Donald Trump his recent Presidential election victory; from the damning emails about Hillary Clinton to alleged Russian involvement in the ballots.

This week, the President-elect faced the other side of the coin when leaked documents purported to detail his involvement with prostitutes.

So it's no wonder he is keen to establish a strong security and defence team around him.

The former New York City Mayor, who goes by the name Rudy, has announced he will be leading Trump's cybersecurity, comprised of a number of private sector tech companies.

Giuliani is the chairman of the global cybersecurity practice at Greenberg Traurig.

When it comes to Donald Trump, it s getting harder by the day to be surprised.

His latest mishap comes from a cabinet appointment, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.

It s Giuliani, now, that s tasked with protecting our nation from the best and most sophisticated cyber criminals both foreign and domestic.

CNBC reported that Dan Tentler, founder of Phobos Group was able to pull up read me files — while using a tethered mobile device, on an airplane — removed by even the most novice of website administrators.

Those files give you all the information you need to do nefarious things.

Or there s this screenshot, showing Giuliani s expired SSL certificate and failure to force users to a secure https connection.

The white-tailed buck was discovered on Wednesday in Jackie Robinson Park in Harlem.

But the deer was actually a wild animal, and it quickly became the centrepiece of a bizarre political feud between New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Richard Cuomo.

On Thursday afternoon, the city announced it planned to kill the deer.

Deer in Harlem - saw this guy walking around in Jackie Robinson park this morning.

Former New York City Mayor and recent Donald Trump superfan Rudy Giuliani has finally been blessed with a government job — the small fruit, perhaps, of spending 2016 praising the president-elect at every opportunity.

Giuliani, after apparently being considered for secretary of state, will instead be an informal cybersecurity advisor to the Trump administration.

SEE ALSO: The people taking Trump s secretary of state pick to court aren t who you d expect

This is a rapidly evolving field both as to intrusions and solutions and it is critically important to get timely information from all sources, Trump's transition team said in a statement announcing the position.

Mr. Giuliani was asked to initiate this process because of his long and very successful government career in law enforcement and his now 16 years of work providing security solutions in the private sector.

The release also says Giuliani will help Trump conduct meetings with leaders of private companies that have faced cybersecurity challenges to help build government policy.

While artificial intelligence was once heralded as the key to unlocking a new era of economic prosperity, policymakers today face a wave of calls to ensure AI is fair, ethical and safe.

New York City Mayor de Blasio recently announced the formation of the nation’s first task force to monitor and assess the use of algorithms.

Days later, the European Union enacted sweeping new data protection rules that require companies be able to explain to consumers any automated decisions.

Unfortunately, the two most popular ideas — requiring companies to disclose the source code to their algorithms and explain how they make decisions — would cause more harm than good by regulating the business models and the inner workings of the algorithms of companies using AI, rather than holding these companies accountable for outcomes.

Bad actors in China, which is fiercely competing with the United States for AI dominance but routinely flouts intellectual property rights, would likely use transparency requirements to steal source code.

The other idea — “algorithmic explainability” — would require companies to explain to consumers how their algorithms make decisions.
