Great wow factor but is it legal? Is it ethical? Is code that can't be trusted any use?

Early testers of GitHub's Copilot, which uses AI to assist programmers to write code, have found problems including alleged spilled secrets, bad code, and copyright concerns, though some see huge potential in the tool.…

(Kessler Foundation) "Our results clearly demonstrated that prism adaptation treatment enhances rehabilitation outcome," said Dr. Chen, senior research scientist at Kessler Foundation. "The treated group showed reliably higher scores than the untreated group in total functional independence and cognitive functional independence." She adds, "This is extremely encouraging evidence that integrating prism adaptation into standard of care for people with spatial neglect is beneficial."

The first name in hardcore digital wargaming is back with Gary Grigsby’s War in the East 2. I managed to get my hands on an early copy, so let’s dive in! I’ve only spent a few hours with the sequel to the legendary strategy game that set the bar for historical accuracy and detail, but I can already tell you: our patience has been rewarded. Gary Grigsby’s War in the East 2 (we’ll just call it East 2 going forward) comes more than a decade after the launch of the original. That might seem like an inflated development period, but we’re…

The FBI quietly released its file on Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain last month on the requests for an investigation into his suicide at the age of 27.

The 10-page file, now available online in the FBI’s Freedom of Information library, called The Vault, includes two messages sent in 2006 calling on the agency to open an investigation amid suspicions that Cobain may have been murdered.

The grunge rocker was found dead of a shotgun wound at his Seattle home on April 5, 1994 with a suicide note was next to his body. Local authorities determined that he killed himself.

An email and letter to the FBI in the file referred to information or attention from  the media speculating about the singer’s death. The names of the individuals who wrote the messages are redacted in the file.

“Millions of fans around the world would like to see the inconsistencies surrounding the death cleared up for once and for all,” stated the email in the file, which was first reported by Rolling Stone. “It is sad to think that an injustice of this nature can be allowed in the United States.”

A letter claimed that Cobain’s “killer is still out there and now, because of the haste of the police department, has the chance to claim other victoms [sic].”

The FBI responded to both that such an investigation would be outside of its jurisdiction.

“We appreciate your concern that Mr. Cobain may have been the victim of a homicide,” said the response. “However, most homicide/death investigations generally fall within the jurisdiction of state and local authorities. … Based on the information you provided, we are unable to identify any violation of federal law within the investigative jurisdiction of the FBI.”

The FBI also included a letter from an official working in the US Office of Congressional and Public Affairs responding to a letter sent to then-US Attorney General Janet Reno in 2000. The original message was not included.

“Your recent communication to Attorney General Janet Reno expressing your belief that Kurt Cobain was murdered has been referred to the FBI for reply,” the official stated. “Based on the limited information you provided, we are unable to justify any violation of federal law within the investigative jurisdiction of the FBI. We are, therefore, unable to take any investigative action in this case.”

The FBI file also contained production notes from the company that created “Unsolved Mysteries,” which featured a segment on Cobain in 1997 that raised questions about his cause of death.
