Ant once again open source OceanBase database

Since its birth in 2010, OceanBase has once again been open source. At the OceanBase conference held on June 1st, Ant's OceanBase company released the latest OceanBase 3.0 version and announced that it is fully open source and adopts the "Open Core" model. This open source uses the domestic Mulan license MulanPubL-2.0, and open source up to 3 million lines of core code. OceanBase said, “It has both high-performance capabilities in both transaction processing and data analysis tasks, and has been upgraded to an enterprise-level distributed database that supports HTAP mixed load. Compared with the past, transaction processing performance has increased by 50%, and data analysis Performance increased by 10 times."

According to some feedback, OceanBase database indicators are good. Although it has experienced open source, closed source and open source, it eventually moved towards open source, and it is becoming stronger and stronger. It is also worthy of recognition.

AI appears in the war

According to the Israeli military, the recent Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the Gaza Strip is the world's first AI war, and AI has become a force multiplier in a war for the first time. In addition to relying on existing intelligence, the Israeli army has also established an AI technology platform in the previous few years to analyze all the collected data and use AI to generate recommendations to the intelligence forces. The intelligence forces formulate high-value targets based on the recommendations and hand them over The military carried out a strike. The military believes that the use of AI can help shorten combat time.

In addition, there are also reports that a weapon-carrying drone autonomously hunted and killed a human target without a designated order.

The advancement of science and technology does not know whether it will benefit or destroy mankind in the end.

Google promises no backdoors in the FLoC privacy sandbox, advertisers are skeptical

Google has been actively fighting against cookies in web browsers, especially those third-party cross-site tracking cookies that seriously violate user privacy. Google offers two solutions: one is the privacy sandbox, and the other is the so-called "joint learning queue" (FLoC).

However, organizations including the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), major browser developers, and even advertisers have all criticized Google's FLoC tracking. Google said that the company will not leave a backdoor in FLoC, nor will it act in accordance with the rules and intentions of other advertisers and partners. But this is not convincing, because Google has the right to retain personal user data with first-party attributes, which means that in essence it is still possible to change the soup without changing the medicine. What's more, Google is likely to overturn this promise in the near future, just as similar incidents have happened many times before.

From the perspective of an advertiser, these things are naturally not convincing enough to convince everyone, not to mention that Google has long abandoned the "do not be evil" rule.
