6:17 pm
players are already expecting disruption and not the kind they like. and it's not all just reindeer games. when climate change is an existential threat. we take you to the arctic circle. this is the, the over your business. i'm janelle dumas unwelcome. we began whether europe's efforts to regulate big tech. the european commission is gearing up for official negotiations to start in january with you countries on major pieces of legislation . the digital markets act aimed to force more competition for tech giant like google, apple, and amazon with a list of do's and don'ts. on the other hand, the digital services act is focused on protecting consumers from illegal or harmful content. the principal being, what's a legal offline should be illegal online to. now that you hopes that these rules will apply in 2023. but the question is, where would that leave big tax?
6:18 pm
big plants are reporter daniel winter steps into facebook's matter, verse for announcer. it's a wonderful, magical experience. here i can live by true self business and pleasure. this is the met of us, at least that's met his vision for the future. the company formerly known as facebook, had a rocky ride in 2021. but could this bold new plan help it faced the future? the missing at the end of october c, e o. mark zuckerberg gave you is a taste of the met of us, a virtual world to live, work and play and field at the same time, announcing a rebranding day. our company is now met a big commitment to the grand vision. however, critics called the dumping of the name facebook, a distraction company anthem played with the scandal and the brand name. facebook
6:19 pm
was increasingly associated with primacy breaches dis information. the trump insurrection, and that's the main reason why the company changed their name. that came off to explosive accusations from whistleblower francis hogan, who claimed facebook knew of harm that was causing vulnerable uses. and that it didn't take enough action to intervene. telling d w. facebook was too focused on english language content, moderation mark zuckerberg has said engagement. base ranking is dangerous, as people are drawn to extreme content. but don't worry, i will save us. the problem is that strategy requires us to build those a. i systems over and over and over again, each language for the platform to be safe. and right now facebook is not doing them . but is it even possible for facebook to properly moderate posts by 2900000000 monthly active users? perhaps mehta has just become too large owning dominant social platforms, not just facebook,
6:20 pm
but what's up and instagram to would be really want and members to be dominated by the very same private companies that already dominate the internet today. and i think the answer for democratic societies would be definitely not. but those are the key questions that we need to be talking about. questions of power, questions of who controls the spaces? and only the 2nd step can we talk about, what is it even mean to live in a metaphor, is the real question to always be is that the future we want is the company formerly known as facebook. com controlled the effect it's already having on the real world. how can we trust it to lead a bold new virtual was indeed are now joined by christie plaids and, and bon. let's start with that christie. is there an answer to whether facebook could be trusted with a virtual universe? well, i think we should emphasize the fact that a, this universe wouldn't be built or controlled by facebook or meta as they're now
6:21 pm
called a mark zuckerberg. set him this himself in the rebrand that the met averse would be a collaborative project involving many players. now that being said, of course, the spree brand ties this company very strongly to this new initiative in a very aggressive way. and yeah, there was actually really a lot of pushback against this move after after zuckerberg announced this as we just heard facebook, facebook or formerly facebook. now meta has been really played by scandals for years, but especially this year and the whistleblower francis house actually called for him to step down and really allow facebook or meta, pardon me to move on from the sort of assorted history they've had right now. we saw many founders of these major big tech companies stepping down this year, also recent years. we, you know, amazon, twitter, microsoft zuckerberg is really the main founder still leading his company and a, based on his company's track record. there's not a lot of reason to think it won't be the same going forward with the multiverse. so
6:22 pm
bit of a last man standing vibe there. now at the top of the show, christy, we talked about e laws in the making. how could you regulation shape, tech players in europe? right, well this regulation has been moving along was surprising. the surprising speed was really just announced just a little over a year ago, and we're already, i'm, as you said, going to be heading into official negotiations in january, so much quicker than people had expected. so what we're seeing in the, in the drafts of these laws are, for example, rules that would limit how these companies can use user data, for example, to leverage for advertising revenue. that would be a major blow to zuckerberg, a company's business model. and we're also seeing discussions of, of financial penalties as high as 10 percent of these companies, global turner annual turnover. so this is an amount that is really enough to make, make them finally pay attention. they've gotten used to sort of getting away with breaking the rules in the past, and if this law passes that way, that could change things. so you're talking about major blows to the business. what
6:23 pm
does this mean about the feasibility of enforcement? right, well the rules themselves and how they would be enforced us still needs to be hashed out by the players involved in, in passing this legislation. but some the elements we're seeing as i would there would be not only a list of rules for these companies to follow, but they would also allow the laws would also allow for the european commission to carry out investigations shouldn't think it's necessary. there've also been calls to include legislation that would protect whistleblowers like hogan, of course, insiders are often the ones with the real information about the, about the dirt that's going on behind the scenes. and that will also be seeing some discussions about how a, what is the responsibility of the commission and what is the responsibility of the individual countries in terms of carrying out the these laws. so, but that all remains to be seen. christie plaid said not with dirt,
6:24 pm
but with reporting. thank you very much. thanks. the consumer electronic show is one of the world's biggest technology events, and it's opening its doors again in las vegas and early january that many companies will not participate. and it's not just because of pandemic restrictions. these, sorry friends, well, long the highlights at the last public consumer electronics show in 2020, where visit us flock to see the latest tech gadgets thought up by companies beacon small. but this year, many will skip the event among them google h t c, and soon us the organize a say the global chip shortage rather than the corona virus pandemic is keeping some exhibit us away like the chip shortage, but they'll hold distribution and changes in my view it's i think probably produce more cancellations of exhibitors than anything out on the new coveted this. what we've heard from her is a nurse or non participating because they just can't get their product. they can't
6:25 pm
get their prototypes together, things like that. and that's definitely been an issue demand. ha, simi conduct us in everything from game consoles to tablets and web cams has exceeded the ability of chip make us to quickly increase production capacity. the entire auto industry has also been impacted severely. there is based on research. we've done in the industry a sense that it's not going to be solved quickly. it. so i think people are more optimistic 6 months ago when we did our 1st at a research than they were 6 months later. um. so it's, it's an overhang for the industry. at the last in person c, s, and 2020. more than 4400 companies participated in las vegas. this time, the numbers down to around half of that few of visitors are also expected to show up at the,
6:26 pm
for the event that set to open on january 5th. now to some of the other global business stories making use. turkey has launched a package of measures aimed at countering the drastic decline in the value of the lira including protecting peoples deposits against losses from future exchange rate fluctuations. the lira has recovered after government health was announced. the international monetary fund has extended debt service relief for $25.00 low income countries. the final trends of an almost 1000000000 dollar debt relief program went to most the american countries as well as he tina paul and some central asian nations to help them cope with a pandemic. now a days to go until christmas santa might be somewhere out there worrying about how to deliver all the presents with his team of reindeer. meanwhile, in finland, just north of the arctic circle, real reindeer herders are struggling with much bigger problems. climate change threatens, they're very livelihood. when an or lila and just the corral,
6:27 pm
her reindeer are getting excited. that's because only law brings food, hey, or tweaks of ivy. they don't like it as much as lighten, but they did help thrive the reindeer need, the extra help for years winter has brought more rain. when rain falls on snow, it freezes, locking in like in and other plants. the animals are unable to smell the food or dig for it, and warm winters aren't the only problem. oh so summers are getting ah, warmer and reindeer is not very good handling heath and it cannot sweat so ah, it very easily overheat and leaf might get hot. somers might kill a lot of rain at a climate summit in glasgow. this past november, walt leaders agreed to fight climate change and keep global warming under one and
6:28 pm
a half degrees. but that doesn't reflect the situation north of the arctic circle. the nose, essentially the temperature so is going faster, is not like other $1.00 is a, it would be a threshold there shouldn't be or crossed. but i mean, here we're going to go beyond that. i mean there are some projections or they even talk about 3 degrees. there would mean incredibly tough conditions for reindeer, who are still an important part of the economy in finland. they are kept for their meat and milk, but their fur hides and even the ant or send holes are also used usually for clothes and tools, but hurting the animals in warmer conditions as expensive. you can't see the economic profitability behind there so much because you have the book, a lot of money in there, compared to norma situation that the radio it leaves out there in the way though to finding it own whitening its own fault. and you have the key with your not people
6:29 pm
usually call they'll where they have the economic profitability, they'll get they living. but for some her nurse there's also optimism. i'm hopeful bit reindeer hurting because we have lasted so far and think we have a good future future in head office, but the use needs to be more active. politically. that's her shell. thanks for watching. ah i ma'am for sky hi. nice. doing an important document was drafted in this very sweet. the politician was found dead in vain.
