The UK Govt: adequacy is at the heart of our approach, we're having very positive talks with the EU about our data protection reform.

In the meanwhile, the EU:

I asked ChatGPT, a new OpenAI chatbot, to write me a poem about "a stressed data protection officer struggling to deal with international data transfers under the GDPR."

I then suggested my own version, and it provided another in response.

The results are pretty interesting. Some slightly off rhymes, and it doesn't quite scan (unlike my masterpiece).

Also, the first poem assumed the DPO was a "he". I used "she" in my response, and the AI switched to "she" in its reply.

"Instead of listening to their people's protests the Chinese Government has chosen to crack down further," Mr Sunak helpfully explains in a lovely crisp bow tie.

In other news ...

“It has not escaped the notice of Chinese protesters that the technologies developed to track people’s movements — in the name of battling #Covid — could well outlast the pandemic and become a permanent and sinister method of political and social control.”

the funniest thing about "modern" AI is that it's all just perceptrons, an area of research that was basically completely dead ended by the 1970s and has only had trivial mathematical improvements since then

Former PM Silvio Berlusconi and his judicial affairs 'seen from a feminist perspective' become the protagonists of a stage musical that will debut in London theatres in 2023.

Needless to say, adequacy is not at the heart of the UK data protection reform, but is rather being used to wipe out a lower body part of our honourable UK Ministers.

I don't envy UK civil servants having to stick to the Ministerial lie that “adequacy is at the heart” of the Data Protection and Digital Information Bill, while our Prime Minister makes the rounds saying “well... we don't actually want to cooperate with these Europeans at all”.
