Greetings everyone,

We wanted to take a moment and let everyone know about the [email protected] community on Lemmy.World which hasn't gained much traction. Additionally, we've noticed occasional complaints about Business-related news being posted in the Technology community. To address this, we want to encourage our community members to engage with the Business community.

While we'll still permit Technology-related business news here, unless it becomes overly repetitive, we kindly ask that you consider cross-posting such content to the Business community. This will help foster a more focused discussion environment in both communities.

We've interacted with the mod team of the Business community, and they seem like a dedicated and welcoming group, much like the rest of us here on Lemmy. If you're interested, we encourage you to check out their community and show them some support!

Let's continue to build a thriving and inclusive ecosystem across all our communities on Lemmy.World!

In 2023, Google and Microsoft each consumed 24 TWh of electricity, surpassing the consumption of over 100 nations, including places like Iceland, Ghana, and Tunisia, according to an analysis by Michael Thomas. While massive energy usage means a substantial environmental impact for these tech giants, it should be noted that Google and Microsoft also generate more money than many countries. Furthermore, companies like Intel, Google, and Microsoft lead renewable energy adoption within the industry.

Detailed analysis reveals that Google's and Microsoft's electricity consumption — 24 TWh in 2023 — equals the power consumption of Azerbaijan (a nation of 10.14 million) and is higher than that of several other countries. For instance, Iceland, Ghana, the Dominican Republic, and Tunisia each consumed 19 TWh, while Jordan consumed 20 TWh. Of course, some countries consume more power than Google and Microsoft. For example, Slovakia, a country with 5.4 million inhabitants, consumes 26 TWh.

While the Goldman-Sachs report was brought up in our community before, I thought this blog post was very well written, while also providing a lot of additional references and helpful material that expands upon the points in the report.

In a significant data breach, hacktivist group NullBulge has infiltrated Disney's internal Slack infrastructure, leaking 1.2TB of sensitive data. This breach, posted on the cybercrime platform Breach Forums on July 12, 2024, exposes many of Disney's internal communications, compromising messages, files, code, and other proprietary information.

Rural and suburban families from Baltimore, Frederick, and Carroll Counties waited in a line extending down the road to enter a gathering hall at a local senior center, where a company named "Public Service Enterprise Group" held a community information session regarding the "Maryland Piedmont Reliability Project." Some of the people in line had heard of the project by word-of-mouth less than 48 hours prior to attending the July 12th event. Despite being formed on July 9th, 2024, the facebook group "STOP MPRP" had a large presence as a collective of concerned citizens at the event. The group reached 7,000 members the day after the event.

The project's stated goal is to improve the reliability of the grid, which distributes power to datacenters in neighboring Virginia. Rather than building renewable power closer to the datacenters, the project instead calls for fossil fuel derived energy to be distributed across Maryland along 70 miles of transmission lines out of Pennsylvania, which does not have the same green energy initiatives as the impacted states. Representatives from PSEG answering questions at the event included engineers and contractors, some of whom had been assigned to the project for under 31 days. The representatives at the session stated they had not anticipated such a large turnout for the two-hour event, based on the attendance of the first events earlier in the week. Many residents left feeling frustrated that they could not find policy and decision makers to answer their questions.

The project is funded by additional tariffs across Maryland and surrounding states. Local attorneys encouraged residents to consider forming a non-profit entity to pool resources for a looming legal battle, that PSEG has indicated may include the acquisition of property rights through the governmental power of eminent domain. One of the frequently-asked-questions on PSEG's website characterizes eminent domain as a less-preferred alternative to their own negotiation process. Residents within the direct path of the project stand to lose rights to multi-generation farmland, including trees that are considered "a gentleman's life work," as described in a letter to the regional transmission operator's CEO.

In other states, there has been similar community backlash against "Proposal 853," which outlines the plan to connect Loudoun County's "Data Center Alley" to fossil fuel power generation in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.

A bipartisan group of senators introduced a new bill to make it easier to authenticate and detect artificial intelligence-generated content and protect journalists and artists from having their work gobbled up by AI models without their permission.

The Content Origin Protection and Integrity from Edited and Deepfaked Media Act (COPIED Act) would direct the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to create standards and guidelines that help prove the origin of content and detect synthetic content, like through watermarking. It also directs the agency to create security measures to prevent tampering and requires AI tools for creative or journalistic content to let users attach information about their origin and prohibit that information from being removed. Under the bill, such content also could not be used to train AI models.

Content owners, including broadcasters, artists, and newspapers, could sue companies they believe used their materials without permission or tampered with authentication markers. State attorneys general and the Federal Trade Commission could also enforce the bill, which its backers say prohibits anyone from “removing, disabling, or tampering with content provenance information” outside of an exception for some security research purposes.

(A copy of the bill is in he article, here is the important part imo:

Prohibits the use of “covered content” (digital representations of copyrighted works) with content provenance to either train an AI- /algorithm-based system or create synthetic content without the express, informed consent and adherence to the terms of use of such content, including compensation)
