Reuters are reporting that Yahoo scanned customer emails for the U.S. intelligence services. Some surveillance experts said this represents the first case to surface of a U.S. Internet company agreeing to an intelligence agency's request by searching all arriving messages, as opposed to examining stored messages or scanning a small number of accounts in real time. It is not known what information intelligence officials were looking for, only that they wanted Yahoo to search for a set of characters. That could mean a phrase in an email or an attachment, said the sources, who did not want to be identified. Other tech giants have rushed to explain that they have not done the same thing.

Melbourne has a new cyber security mega-hub. The CSIRO's digital research unit Data61 has opened the doors to its new national cyber security centre in Melbourne, situated alongside IT security experts from Oxford University and the state government.

The Moral Machine is an interesting exercise. A platform for gathering a human perspective on moral decisions made by machine intelligence, such as self-driving cars. We show you moral dilemmas, where a driverless car must choose the lesser of two evils, such as killing two passengers or five pedestrians. As an outside observer you judge which outcome you think is more acceptable. You can then see how your responses compare with those of other people.
