One Super Prime Application for Rule with All Others
Meta said it’s also providing $200,000 in grants to nonprofits willing to research real-world applications for NLLB-200.
Ideal candidates are those into lauding and instructing on matters and methodologies delivering Mastery of the Universe doing Global Operating Devices work.
Although not absolutely essential to be able to communicate in any language, it certainly would not do one harm to be so helpful.

Clarification Please ……… Lest Ambiguity Presents and Promotes Piss Poor Preparations Planning Pathetic Performances
“And if you have, or are trying for, a presence in the Chinese market, you’ll be subject to more attention than you might think,” he added.
Is that a Wild Wacky Wicked threat from the West or an Exotic Erotic Ethereal treat from the East?
With a novel engaging market in the sum of billions, in both reward and persons, a presence in the Chinese market is a no-brainer for any entrepreneurial enterprise delivering a leading advantage over both hostile opposition and subversive competition alike.
There is one simple way to try and prevent the brain drain of anything worthy of the Chinese billions …… and that is surely the most generous of home team purchases of such enterprises …. with the tacit agreement from proprietary intellectual property sources to not deliver leading advantage to foreign forces first …. unless and until the advantage be abused and misused to create a perverse inequality and corrupt inequity ……. which always delivers an unwelcome disruptive and mutually assured destructive conflict and thus is gravely to be regarded and always best avoided and prevented.

What is perhaps noteworthy is, unlike copyright, there is not a well-funded group lobbying to extend the life of patents to 70+ years. …. Roland6
Do patents presently have a shelf life/half life? What is it? Who here knows and wants to share what is known and/or imagined?

Re: Pot, Kettle, etc
Let’s not forget how both Britain and the USA came to be business/industrial superpowers in the first place ……. Alan Brown
Britain and the USA appear to be unable to replicate the process in order to be recognised and respected as a much more advanced intelligent superpower than was ever considered possible before and with its advanced intelligence superpowers constantly growing and progressing.
Such then renders them at a distinct debilitating disadvantage and as prey and carrion to the vultures and business angels who can and do.

Hip Hip Hooray ……. Three Cheers for El Reg.
I would just like to say how nice it is to see the return of the date and time stamp for posts on El Reg. It is a valuable aid in so many a subtle and stealthy way …… 🙂 which will probably have some, who really should know better nowadays, thinking of ways to both either well use or badly abuse it.
But how very strange that it can then so easily not appear again shortly after, as has here just been the case. Is that real actual spooky stuff, if not nonsense ? 🙂

The present disgraceful Conservative government’s proposal that tech companies could be fined by Ofcom to the tune of $25 million (£18 million) – or ten percent of their global annual revenue depending on which is higher, should it prove impossible for the tech companies to comply with an absurd request, is then simply a stealth tax raising exercise to raise funds for government spending. Nothing more, nothing less.
If they were genuine in their concerns, surely government with all of its contacts and expertise on call at vast public expense, would provide an appropriate app and have businesses duly mandated to install it. That has things sorted simply practically immediately and extremely effectively too ……… you know, in much the same way as they say China ensures that businesses are suitably controlled.
