Australia reveals date to launch international vaccine passports



International vaccination passports are arriving in Australia

Australians will begin using an international vaccine passport from October as a way to prove their vaccination status overseas and on their return to the country.

The country’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison today outlined that home quarantine will be key to reopening international borders.

Scott Morrison is also asking state and territory leaders about how they plan to integrate vaccination certificates into existing check-in apps, such as ‘Services Victoria’ – and plans to request state’s timelines on introducing home quarantine.

Under the nation’s reopening plan, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has suggested overseas travel will resume when states reach the 80 per cent vaccination threshold

Currently, around 40 per cent of the population in Australia aged over 16 is fully vaccinated against COVID-19. 

All travellers coming to Australia must undertake a mandatory two-week hotel quarantine period regardless of their vaccination status. 

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian confirmed that considerations were underway for what quarantine looks like for returning Australians, once vaccine targets are reached.

“There will be a transition in the quarantine system from 70 per cent double dose to 80 per cent double dose,”

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said.

“Once we hit 80 per cent double dose we will definitely be opening up Sydney Airport to welcome home Australians.” 

A home quarantine system is currently being trialled in South Australia, allowing residents arriving from NSW and Victoria to quarantine at their residence.

Microsoft recalls ‘Recall AI’ feature over security fears



Microsoft has announced a postponement in the release of its new Recall AI feature, citing significant security concerns raised during internal testing.

Pope Francis took charge of discussions on the implications of artificial intelligence for global ethics and governance, Reuters reports.

The pope said AI represented an “epochal transformation” for mankind, but stressed the need for close oversight of the ever-developing technology to preserve human life and dignity.

“No machine should ever choose to take the life of a human being,” he said, adding that people should not let superpowerful algorithms decide their destiny.
“We would condemn humanity to a future without hope if we took away people’s ability to make decisions about themselves and their lives, by dooming them to depend on the choices of machines,” he warned.
