Facial recognition software has a gender problem How facial analysis sees you. Credit: Morgan Klaus Scheuerman/CU Boulder With a brief glance at a single face, emerging facial recognition software can now categorize the gender of many men and women with remarkable accuracy. But if that face belongs to a transgender person, such systems get it wrong more than one third of the time, according to new University of Colorado Boulder research. "We found that facial analysis services performed consistently worse on transgender individuals, and were universally unable to classify non-binary genders," said lead author Morgan Klaus Scheuerman, a Ph.D. student in the Information Science department. "While there are many different types of people out there, these systems have an extremely limited view of what gender looks like." The study comes…

1. South Africa avoided a second recession in two years, with the economy growing by 3.1% in the three months to end-June, according to Stats SA. This is much stronger than expected: A Reuters poll of economists had forecast growth of 2.4%. The mining sector rebounded with growth of 14.4% - contributing a full 1.0 percentage point to GDP growth. This was thanks to the end of strikes at gold mines, but also due to a major rally in metal prices. Gold is currently trading at its highest level in six years, while platinum jumped from below $800/oz in June to above $930 currently. The rand rallied almost a percent to R15.10/$. 2.

Going forward, the government department in charge of science and innovation will place emphasis on working with other government departments to enhance public sector innovation for societal benefit. This is the word from Dr Phil Mjwara, director-general at the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI), speaking on the occasion of the launch of the 2019 South African Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) indicators report.

Referencing a tool called the municipal innovation maturity index, Mjwara says the decision-support tool is…

After outcry, Apple carves out room for rival parental control apps to exist

Most prominently, as The New York Times points out, the company appears to be backing away from its stance that screen time and parental control apps shouldn’t have access to the same powerful mobile device management (MDM) and VPN APIs that big companies do — a stamce which the company conveniently used earlier this year to remove a whole bunch of those apps just as it was coincidentally…
