ScreenX is the world’s first multi-projection cinema technology expanding the traditional cinema screen to the side auditorium walls, creating a 270-degree viewing experience.

Originally launched in South Korea, Cineworld Crawley will be the latest cinema in the UK to install the new technology, bringing the total number of ScreenX auditoriums to 12.

A spokesman said: “The innovative technology uses an array of projectors and with proprietary ScreenX software, blends multiple images into one seamless image extending from the central screen out.

“ScreenX walls are installed with a fabric to ensure brightness and colour closely match the content on the main screen and extend the length of the auditorium.

“Strategically placed audio systems and speakers ensure that sound does not compromise the immersive viewing experience.”

Upcoming films that movie fans can experience in ScreenX include Detective Pikachu and Godzilla: King of Monsters, and DC blockbuster Shazam!

Matthew Blinch, Cineworld Crawley general manager said: “We look forward to welcoming cinemagoers in Crawley to ScreenX.

“We are driven by innovation and this fully immersive screen will transform the way our customers experience film.

“We’ll be opening the screen with Shazam! and can’t wait to transport movie fans into the onscreen action.”

Xena Exchange launches first-ever Telegram GRAM crypto derivatives

The raise was so successful that Telegram canceled plans to offer the tokens in a public initial coin offering and since that time the tokens have not …

Up-and-coming digital assets trading provider Xena Financial Systems UK Ltd. Tuesday entered the derivatives market with the first-ever leveraged cryptocurrency-settled derivative contract for the GRAM token.

The GRAM token is the cryptocurrency backed by secure messaging app provider Telegram Messenger LLC, which raised $1.7 billion privately in May.

The fundraising was so successful that Telegram canceled plans to offer the tokens in a public initial coin offering and since that time the tokens have not been publicly traded.

Xena’s derivative contracts on the GRAM token do not make the tokens tradable but give those who were unable to buy the tokens the ability to earn dividends on potential future exchange-rate hikes. At the same time, GRAM holders can hedge their investments against possible exchange-rate drops.

“This is a significant step for the entire crypto market, considering the importance of the GRAM token and its potential value as an asset for derivative contracts trading,” Anton Kravchenko, chief executive officer of the Xena Exchange, said in a statement. “This is the first time on the cryptocurrency market where contracts have been used not only to speculate on the rate changes but also to hedge the risks.”

A spokesperson for the company told SiliconANGLE that “XENA is a derivative contracts and cryptocurrencies exchange from investment banking professionals from JP Morgan, Deutsche Bank etc. built to meet the demands of traders and analysts all over the world.”

Although strongly backed, GRAM and the related Telegram blockchain on which the tokens are meant to used have been fairly quiet over the last nine months.

Telegram said at the time of the fundraising that it intended to use the $1.7 billion to build a “third-generation” blockchain named TON that will use the GRAM token as its native cryptocurrency for transactions.

Jigsaw’s new Chrome extension will ‘Tune’ out toxic YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Disqus comments

Still an experiment, Tune lets you determine how much toxicity appears in comments on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, and Disqus. A “volume” …

Jigsaw is an Alphabet incubator tasked with using technology to tackle global security challenges. Notable projects include protections against DDoS attacks and DNS manipulation. Its latest is a Chrome extension called Tune to filter out toxic online comments with machine learning.

In 2017, Jigsaw and Google announced the Perspective API that news organization and online communities could implement to filter out harassment. Instead of manual curation, machine learning is used to review comments and score toxicity. Partners like The New York Times, The Economist, and The Guardian have all experimented with the API.

Jigsaw is now bringing Perspective directly to users with a Chrome extension for Mac, Windows, Linux, and Chrome OS. Still an experiment, Tune lets you determine how much toxicity appears in comments on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, and Disqus.

A “volume” dial has a range of options from turning off all toxic comments to seeing everything: hide it all, keep it quiet, low, medium, loud, blaring, and show it all. Hidden comments feature a dot beside them that are color-coded to note the severity.

Tune also features the ability to filter toxicity, or a mix that allows users to show/hide comments that are an attack on identity, insult, profanity, threat, or sexually explicit.

Jigsaw notes that no personal data is stored, with comment text sent for scoring and then automatically deleted after ranking. Users do have to sign into their Google Account for initial access to the Perspective API.

As an experiment, Tune “still misses some toxic comments and incorrectly hides some non-toxic comments.”

We’re constantly working to improve the underlying technology, and users can easily give feedback right in the tool to help us improve our algorithms. Tune isn’t meant to be a solution for direct targets of harassment (for whom seeing direct threats can be vital for their safety), nor is Tune a solution for all toxicity. Rather, it’s an experiment to show people how machine learning technology can create new ways to empower people as they read discussions online.

British Panel Calls for Stricter Antitrust Rules on Tech Giants

France has proposed taxes on technology companies, while Germany … in the most promising emerging technologies, like artificial intelligence.

The recommendations are part of a broader review of tech industry policies as the country prepares to exit the European Union. British officials are also considering taxes on tech companies and making internet companies liable for the spread of misinformation, hate speech and terrorist content on their platforms.

Any regulations would still need to be agreed to by Parliament.

In the United States, Ms. Warren’s regulatory plan would force tech giants to reverse some acquisitions, including Facebook’s purchase of WhatsApp and Instagram, Amazon’s deal for Whole Foods and Google’s purchase of the mapping company Waze. Companies also would be prevented from transferring or sharing people’s data with third parties.

Mr. Furman, the Harvard economist and former Obama adviser, said breaking up the companies was not yet necessary. But he voiced some regret that the White House did not do more to regulate the tech industry while he was there.

“I wish we had gotten to some of the competition issues sooner,” he said.

A common argument against competition regulation is that new companies will emerge as technologies change, just as Google and Facebook overtook older technology.

The British report said that rationale no longer applied because the barriers of entry for young companies were much higher. The largest companies, including Google, Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft, are leaders in the most promising emerging technologies, like artificial intelligence.

“The companies most able to take advantage of it may well be the existing large companies because of the importance of data for the successful use of these tools,” the report said.
