    ... The fact of the matter is the data that Cambridge Analytica acquired from Facebook, much of which they obtained legally and as Facebook intended them to, was entirely useless without machine learning. Machine learning is one of the baby steps required for building artificial intelligence, it is a field of computer science that gives computer systems the ability to “learn” with data without being programmed by a person.

    ... Each new data breach—Yahoo, Equifax, Uber, and now Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica leak, which sold out as many as 87 million people—has set off alarm bells, yet we continue to readily engage with free platforms that make our lives easier. As technology evolves, however, our complacency is poised to leave us more exposed than ever before.

    ... For now, he has found (you can read the order here) that "plaintiffs' claims are sufficiently cohesive to allow for a fair and efficient resolution on a class basis." The class itself will consist of "Facebook users located in Illinois for whom Facebook created and stored a face template after June 7, 2011."

    IS THE LAW FINALLY CATCHING UP TO MARK ZUCKERBERG?

    A new class-action suit around user privacy could force Facebook to pay billions

    ... Facebook does this through a program called DeepFace, which uses data it has gathered about what you look like to match your face to your online profile. But Illinois’s Biometric Information Privacy Act (B.I.P.A.), which was signed into law in 2008, requires that companies notify people when their biometric data is being collected, and get their permission to do so.

    FTC-mandated audit cleared Facebook's privacy policies in 2017

    ... That's why it was a mystery how the fact that Cambridge Analytica harvested millions of users' information remained hidden until recently, turns out it was because the latest audit conducted in 2017 failed to detect that something was going on behind the scenes. The Electronic Privacy Information Center found a (heavily redacted) copy of the audit after submitting a Freedom of Information Act request. It reads: ...

    ... “I’m very glad we built a business not to be ad-supported but to be based on subscription,” Hastings said in an indirect reference to Facebook’s core business. Hastings, who is a Facebook board member, further distanced Netflix from the data privacy concerns surrounding tech companies at the moment by suggesting his company is more of a media company — more in the same vein as say, The Walt Disney Co. (DIS) or CBS Corp. (CBS) — than a pure tech company.
