[Reuters] YouTube restores channel after Reuters inquiry into removal of Xinjiang videos UGN Security 06/25/21 05:59 PM

Reuters exclusively reported that a human rights group which had attracted millions of views on YouTube to testimonies from people who say their families have disappeared in China’s Xinjiang region is moving its videos to little-known service Odysee after some were taken down by the Google-owned streaming giant. Atajurt Kazakh Human Rights’ channel has published nearly 11,000 videos on YouTube totaling over 120 million views since 2017, thousands of which feature people speaking to camera about relatives they say have disappeared without a trace in China’s Xinjiang region, where UN experts and rights groups estimate over a million people have been detained in recent years. The channel was blocked on June 15.





Following inquiries from Reuters as to why the channel was removed, YouTube restored it, explaining that it had received multiple so-called ‘strikes’ for videos which contained people holding up ID cards to prove they were related to the missing, violating a YouTube policy which prohibits personally identifiable information from appearing in its content. They reinstated the channel on June 18 but asked Atajurt to blur the IDs.

Reuters exclusively reported that EU antitrust regulators will open a formal investigation by the end of the year into Google’s digital advertising business, in what could be the biggest regulatory threat to the business that generated $147 billion in revenue last year. An EU probe could result in an order to Alphabet unit Google to change potential anti-competitive practices on top of fines that could reach 10% of its global revenue. Google’s decade-long battle with the EU competition enforcer has already seen it slapped with more than $9 billion in total fines.

Reuters provided insight into how Facebook and Alphabet Inc’s Google in recent years committed a combined $600 million to support news outlets globally, many of them local or regional enterprises foundering in a digital age.

[Reuters] Reuters exclusively reports SoftBank tech fund in talks to invest in Dubai cloud kitchen Kitopi UGN Security 06/02/21 02:11 PM

Reuters exclusively reported that SoftBank Group Corp is in talks to invest in Dubai “cloud kitchen” Kitopi’s latest funding round through its second technology fund. Cloud kitchens are facilities built to prepare food specifically for delivery and they have benefited from the shift to online services during the coronavirus crisis. These “dark”, “cloud” or “ghost” kitchens have no physical presence as a restaurant, and offer delivery-only services from a centralized location through a mobile app. Allied Market Research in India has estimated that the global cloud kitchen industry could be worth about $71 billion by 2027 compared with $43 billion in 2019.

The technology finds certain faces in photos or videos, with banks representing one sector that has taken interest in systems from Any Vision or its many competitors to improve security and service. Organizations in other industries are chasing similar goals. The Los Angeles hospital Cedars-Sinai and oil giant BP Plc are among several previously unreported users of Any Vision.

Reuters revealed that Italy aims to spend almost 7 billion euros ($8.33 billion) in European recovery funds on ultra-fast networks, up 60% from a previous goal, as ministers lay out alternatives to a long-delayed single national broadband plan. The government of Mario Draghi, which took office in February, is revising a national Recovery and Resilience Plan (RRP) that would entitle it to some 206 billion euros by 2026 from an EU program to help nations hardest hit by the novel coronavirus.

Reuters examined how dominant Chinese drone giant DJI Technology Co Ltd’s North American operations have been hit by internal ructions in recent weeks and months, with a raft of staff cuts and departures. The loss of key managers, some of who have joined rivals, has compounded problems caused by U.S. government restrictions on Chinese companies, and raised the once-remote prospect of DJI’s dominance being eroded.

[Reuters] Reuters reveals Instacart mulls direct listing in snub to IPOs UGN Security 03/05/21 02:52 PM

Reuters broke the news that U.S. grocery delivery app Instacart is considering going public through a direct listing, concerned that it could leave money on the table through a traditional initial public offering (IPO). Investment bankers working on Instacart’s listing have estimated that it could be valued by the stock market at more than $50 billion. The move would make Instacart the latest company to snub an IPO, for decades the primary path to a stock market debut, because it risks pricing its offering too low compared to where its shares end up trading.
