// The complaint alleges that White House staffers' widely reported use of encrypted messaging apps, such as Signal and Confide, for internal communication violates the Presidential Records Act (PRA). In the lawsuit, the groups claim the Trump administration has "failed to adopt adequate policies and guidelines to maintain and preserve presidential records." Encrypted messaging apps automatically delete messages, which would prevent that communication from being archived. //

Actual #multitasking, as opposed to task-switching?

#Google #research
A neural network that does well on vision, language, and audio simultaneously has been developed by Google. "The inspiration for how MultiModel handles multiple domains comes from how the brain transforms sensory input from different modalities (such as sound, vision or taste), into a single shared representation and back out in the form of language or actions. As an analog to these modalities and the transformations they perform, MultiModel has a number of small modality-specific sub-networks for audio, images, or text, and a shared model consisting of an encoder, input/output mixer and decoder."

"MultiModel is capable of learning eight different tasks simultaneously: it can detect objects in images, provide captions, recognize speech, translate between four pairs of languages, and do grammatical constituency parsing at the same time."

Oh, what about #ethics anyway?
"we must teach children not just to think about how to design and program a particular technology, but to consider its potential role and impact on society. Schools have a strong need to infuse critical thinking about the benefits and drawbacks of using technological innovations. Computer science educators should prepare students not only to learn computer science concepts and practices, but also how to deal with pressing ethical questions related to the capabilities of technology—including mass surveillance, the spreading of fake news through social media, malicious hacking, and the loss of jobs to automation."

What are #edtech consortia saying that we are saying about #onlineeducation?

Any snark aside, I do like to hear from the #UCF people because they have actually figured a few things out about system-wide online ed.
