COVID-19 ‘war games’: the computer program that could help save your job

* Tech firm creates game to simulate impact of COVID layoffs

* ‘Broad-front’ cost-cutting strategy seen as more effective

* World of work on brink of revolution, creator says

LONDON, Nov 11 (Reuters) – Bank of England Chief Economist Andy Haldane has signed up to judge the winner of a ‘war game’ designed to help firms find alternatives to mass layoffs in the face of a coronavirus-driven slowdown.

Confronted with the most unpredictable pandemic in memory, cost-conscious firms have already axed millions of staff worldwide, while UK redundancies hit a record high of 314,000 in the quarter to Sept. 30, official data showed on Tuesday.

Unilever-owned tech firm uFlexReward created the COVID-19 War Game to allow executives to explore the impact of huge job cuts on their future earnings prospects.

“Many companies across the UK are facing financial strains as a result of the COVID crisis,” Haldane told Reuters.

Two studies focus on ethical aspects of brain-computer interface technologies

Brain-computer interface (BCI) technologies are no longer hypothetical, yet there are fundamental aspects of the technology that remain unaddressed by both ethicists and policy-makers. Two new papers address these issues by outlining the outstanding ethical issues, offering guidance for addressing those issues, and offering particular insight into the field of BCI tech for cognitive enhancement.

BCI technologies are devices that detect brain signals conveying intention and translates them into executable output by a computer. BCI technologies can also provide feedback to the user, reflecting whether he or she attained a goal or completed a desired action.”


Allen Coin, Graduate Student, North Carolina State University and lead author of both papers

“BCI devices can be non-invasive devices that users wear, or they can be invasive devices, which are surgically implanted,” says Veljko Dubljević, an assistant professor in NC State’s
