Look, ma, no hands!


Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz and its technology partner Bosch have not been shy about their collective desire to bring automated valet parking to the masses, and thanks to the city of Stuttgart and the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, that future is inching closer to reality.

Mercedes-Benz announced on Monday that it, Bosch and parking-garage operator Apcoa will deploy an automated valet parking (AVP) system at the Stuttgart Airport’s P6 parking garage. According to the automaker, there’s an optional “pre-installation” for its flagship 2021 S-Class that will eventually enable something called Intelligent Park Pilot, which will give the car the ability to park itself based on a smartphone command, a first for the industry.

Here’s how it will work. Behind the entrance to Stuttgart’s P6 garage, there will be a space for AVP users to leave their car. After confirming the car is ready to park, the vehicle will

Big tech’s emerging market finance push brings rewards and risk

LONDON: A push by big technology firms into financial services in developing countries will improve access to them, but might also make traditional lenders more vulnerable, the Financial Stability Board (FSB) said.

The expansion in emerging markets has generally been more rapid and broad-based than that in advanced economies, the FSB, which coordinates financial regulation for the Group of 20 Economies (G20), said in the report released on Monday.

Lower levels of access to traditional banking and financial services developing economies had created demand for services now offered by big tech firms, the report found, particularly among low-income populations and in rural areas.

An increasing availability of mobile phones and internet access supported this trend, the FSB said.

“However the expansion of BigTech activity also gives rise to risks and vulnerabilities,” it said, pointing to lower financial literacy and firms using other data gathered.

What Is Fair Use? Google vs. Oracle Brings Decade-Long Copyright Battle To Supreme Court

KEY POINTS

  • Oral arguments were held before the Supreme Court over the copyright case between Oracle and Google
  • Google stands to pay Oracle nearly $9 billion for 11,000 lines of code in Android software if the court rules in Oracle’s favor
  • Big tech is throwing in behind Google while media and entertainment companies and the Trump administration is backing Oracle

The Supreme Court faces upending the tech industry by determining whether Google stole code from Oracle in building its Android operating system in a case that could redefine the meaning of the fair use doctrine. All eight justices on Wednesday grilled the tech giants’ legal teams as well the U.S. deputy solicitor general in a potentially far-reaching case.

Google said its incorporation of 11,500 lines of Oracle Java code constitutes fair use, while Oracle argued the action violated its ownership rights. The lawsuit has been working its way through the

Yale docs ‘doing it for the heart’: Technology brings more transplants with shorter wait

NEW HAVEN — Dan Bruno’s heart was failing him.

While he taught multimedia at Groton Middle School, rode his exercise bike and lifted weights, “I learned from the doctors that this was kind of abnormal,” he said .

He had been diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a thickening of the heart muscle, at 5. He had a defibrillator. In June 2019, his weak heart caught up to him.

While mowing the lawn, Bruno’s heart began to race and his defibrillator fired, trying to shock his heart into beating regularly. Then it fired again, 21 times in all.

“They compared it to being kicked in the chest by a horse,” Bruno said. Lying face down, with “each shock, my body would convulse up. It was quite the experience.”

After showing poor results on a stress test in late July, “that basically sealed it. They said, ‘you’re going on the transplant list,’” he
