EU Commission President pushes for greater military capabilities



The President of the European Union Commission, Ursula von der Leyen has used her State of the Union address to push for greater EU military capabilities

The EU Commission President says she wishes for the EU to be part of the global solution… and her comments follow the recent withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan.

After the Afghan pull-out, the President believes the EU needed the “political will” to intervene without the assistance and guidance of the US led NATO.

The European Union has historically relied on the NATO alliance for any military missions and action.

The rapid collapse of Kabul has recently reignited the conversation about the EU’s ability to stand on its own two feet and drive its own defence policy

The president’s announcement follows the German Defence Minister saying earlier this month that the EU should become “a strategic player to be reckoned with”.

French President Emmanuel Macron has also made similar calls in the past.

Meanwhile, Ursula von der Leyen believes it’s time for the EU defence union.

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.
