The TS condemns Google Spain to pay 8,000 euros to a man for not removing data on pardon

The judges argue that such information could be relevant at the time, in 1999 but not in 2010, and prevailing their right to honor and intimacy

The Civil Chamber contradicts the Contentious of this Tribunal, which only sees possible claim Google Inc., established in California, which hampers and slows down the steps

The Civil Chamber of the Supreme Court has convicted Google Spain to pay compensation of 8,000 euros to a man who had claimed to withdraw from the search information concerning the pardon that was granted in 1999 on the ground that their right Danana to honor and intimacy not be a person of public relevance.

The judges considered that treatment, in 2010, of the personal data of affected regarding the pardon that was granted in 1999 for a crime of 1981 must be considered unlawful by inappropriate and disproportionate, for the period since that happened facts which also have no historical interest.

The sentence, which has been a speaker Judge Rafael saraza, rejects the argument of Google Spain to consider the parent company Google Inc solely responsible for data processing. In this sense, says that such asolution “would in practice serious obstacle to the effectiveness of fundamental rights “because the person concerned would be forced to litigate against the parent company, which has its registered office in California, with high costs and delays that would entail.

disparate criteria

On this same question, the Civil Court has taken into account the recent rulings of the Contentious-Administrative of the same court, which estimated the alleged lack of standing by Google Spain . It concludes that those resolutions have no detrimental effect on the resource that solves the Civil Court by the existence of different governing criteria in the different jurisdictions and the diversity of the regulations that apply for one and theother.

The sentence ponders the exercise of freedom of information against the right to honor and privacy when the information relates to a pardon for an offense that adversely affects the reputation of the affected. In this weighting, considers that there is a public interest in that society is informed properly about the pardons granted by the government, the identity of the victims and the crimes committed. This public interest, according to the Board, justifies the initial treatment of index data representing web pages where pardons are published and displayed on the results page of a general Internet search engine.

However, the judgment indicates, after a reasonable period, ceases to be lawful “because it is unsuitable for the purpose for which treatment was made.” In this case, emphasizes that “the damage caused to the rights to honor and privacy of the affected, it is disproportionate to the public interest served by the processing of such data, when it is not a person of public relevance, nor facts present a historical interest “.

Microsoft HoloLens: amazing project and the real alternative to virtual reality

Detail of HoloLens, augmented reality device of the American firm

Detail of HoloLens, augmented reality device of the American firm – MICROSOFT

Given the growing craze for virtual reality we are experiencing in recent years,Microsoft has committed to make a difference, choosing another technology,augmented reality . Technology that was somewhat marred after the failure of Google Glass two years ago. The American company continues to expand the possibilities of the helmet HoloLens. He did it for the first time during theprevious edition of Build developer conference, and this year , wanted to go a little beyond showing some of his virtues.

Microsoft has allowed the newspaper ABC, among other guests means, the possibility of testing in San Francisco this ambitious project, which is still at an early stage. He did so in the course for programmers, or called, a “school of Holograms” as through the same experience that NASA has on the planet Mars . This latest project, very didactic cut, lets users know firsthand the vicissitudes of the planet in question thanks to the figure of the famous astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who exercises guidance. The result is intoxicating.

Intended for a specific purpose

The fact is that this technology is to fill some existing gaps in the market and pave the way for other new experiences and applications that come in the future. We all remember as the last milestone in augmented reality glasses Google Glass, but Microsoft has done an incredible job in hardware HoloLens,giving a considerable technological leap over its predecessors. In addition, this device for the head, unlike the Google glasses, are not intended to be all the time on, but have a specific purpose.

fully independent

One of the big differences HoloLens respect to any viewer virtual reality is that they are completely independent, ie not need to be connected to a computer to function. Microsoft wear glasses incorporated therein an entire computer equivalent of a high-end laptop. Thanks to that fact need not be connected granting them freedom of movement and comfort at a time when the “wireless” should be taken for granted.

Screening of “holograms”

The HoloLens are autonomous, yes, but with a ‘big but’. The only time a computer is necessary is when we want to share a “hologram”, a term with which Microsoft refers to the overlay virtual objects on a real image. For all people who are in the same place to share the same experience and interact with the same hologram will need a WiFi – equipped computer acting as a server between them. This machine will be responsible for all to see this “hologram” in the same position relative to their point of view. The result is surprising and, why not say, useful.

Reduced field of view

The second aspect that calls attention and that may disappoint many is that the field of view is very small. The crystal HoloLens is transparent so it allows us to see everything around, but the rectangle that fills the screen where they project the images is too small compared to our visual breadth. It would be like watching a 15 – inch screen two meters away . It disappoints because they often already have seen pictures like this that are not what they actually see, which creates false expectations. In the case of this example we would see only one object at the same time and probably the one on the table, not complete, being very close to the model.

Adjustment system

To avoid confusion, here we are not talking about an immersive experience as with the virtual reality but specifically as a “hologram” information on real objects. HoloLens outside consists of two main components, glasses and an inner headband which is what fits the head, forming two concentric circles.Something not seen in the images circulating on the network. The headband is what fits and rests on the top of the forehead and neck, leaving thus freedom glasses to “float” without support anywhere else. The complete set does not feel heavy or uncomfortable, and some use, can spend hours enjoying the device.

“Mapping” of the surface

Mode Desarrollor newspaper ABC has seen how HoloLens is able to “map” all surfaces around the user. From the furniture to the walls up to four meters away. Thus, the “holograms” can interact with our environment. For example, to create a hole in the ground from where small robots that have to shoot or throw balls that bounce off the walls of the room . According to the project managers they are constantly learning from our environment.

several unknowns

Another of the great unknowns of HoloLens is how you actually control. We have three types of controls, voice, gestures and two physical buttons for brightness and volume. Speech recognition works through Cortana, Microsoft’s virtual assistant, so the experience is very similar to the latest operating system Windows 10 . It serves, above all, to open applications, close them or pause them . Gestures that function as if it were a mouse click but in the air -within the field of view of the HoloLens, yes- serve to perform various actions as “touching” a “hologram” or shoot a game. And it does sowith absolute precision. In tests, clicks in the air, soon after use, became a natural gesture.

Good sound corporamiento

Another aspect of this device, the developer kit will cost $ 3,000 and its launch could come in a couple of years, it is with regard to the sound generated by a system 3D stereo audio. Probably one of the best aspects of the HoloLens achieved. It seems to come from where the “hologram”, making the experience more immersive and even allowing to find “lost” holograms.

Augmented reality versus virtual reality

The debate over which is better augmented reality or virtual reality must be made ​​clear that both technologies have a completely different use. While virtual reality has a clear use in games and multimedia content, augmented reality seems to be more focused on practical and professional use. For example, the experience of walking on Mars would have been much better using virtual reality increased. If on a closed room with nothing inside, offer towalk on the surface of an unknown planet, augmented reality falls far short .But if we had been on a physical recreation of Martian soil, virtual reality would have been a good choice to highlight additional information. In short, when entremezclamos physical reality with digital, the HoloLens are always the most appropriate. But if we play a completely virtual environment, then no.

The Pentagon invites hackers to attack their websites

The Pentagon wants to discover vulnerabilities in their systems.

The Pentagon wants to discover vulnerabilities in their systems.

The program seeks to help people find external vulnerabilities.

The US Defense Department is inviting hackers to test their cyber security under a pilot program is the first of its kind in the federal government.Called “Hack the Pentagon” (Hacking the Pentagon), this program will award in effective participants that can identify weaknesses in the public pages of the Pentagon. ” I always encourage our people to think beyond the five -sided box that is our Pentagon , ” said Defense secretary Ashton Carter.”Invite hackers responsible to test our cyber security is certainly one of these cases. I am confident that this innovative initiative will strengthen our digital defense and ultimately enhance our national security. ” Ttiene aim to put more filters to the repeated threats he has received the US government in recent years. These include the massive cyberattack that bythe end of 2014, committed information of up to four million federal employees or this past August, when Russian hackers infiltrated the system unclassified emails Joint Chiefs of Staff US .S. the Pentagon already has a team dedicated to finding flaws in their system experts, but it is the first time you ask for help to external. the “hackers” this pilot program participants need to be US citizens, have previously subjected to a background check, and once investigated, may only be part of this in a limited period of time. the systems most sensitive information confidential missions the Pentagon are not covered under the initiative. “I’m always asking our people to think beyond the five – sided box that is the Pentagon. Invite hackers responsible to test our will in this line cybersecurity , “said US Defense secretary Ashton Carter, in a statement. “Hack the Pentagon” to be launched in April, it is inspired by similar projects that have had some of the largest US technology companies to improve their security. Companies the likes of Facebook, Google, Yahoo and Microsoft already have programs of this kind, called “bounty bug” because they offer financial rewards to identify system failures of their networks. Cybersecurity is leading the latter days on the agenda of the Pentagon, which has already announced Monday that the US Army It has deployed new online digital weapons to attack the Islamic State (EI) and end their communications, coordination of their members and their funding sources in Syria and Iraq.
