Uber plans to invest into developing its own worldwide maps

Uber currently makes uses of Google’s mapping technology to power its app. But it looks like that isn’t enough for them. According to The Financial Times, Uber wants to invest half a billion dollars into making their own worldwide maps that will be more detailed and show things like traffic patterns, door locations, and other potential pickup locations. The development of this tailor-made map would also help further the autonomous vehicle project of the company.

Other moves Uber has made in the past in terms of mapping include hiring former Google employees like Brian McClendon and forging partnerships or acquiring mapping companies such as TomTom and DigitalGlobe.

Instagram to help hinder online harassment with comment filter control

It isn’t news that we have a big problem with online trolls but it’s always good when social networks and sites work towards trying to curb the harassment people experience online. Instagram is working to allow users to ban certain phrases or emojis from appearing on your feed or you could even turn off your comments section altogether. While Instagram already has some filters in place, this will give you a better handle on the experience you get on the site. It’s supposedly rolled out to some high-profile users already but they are said to be working to bring it to more users.

“Our goal is to make Instagram a friendly, fun and, most importantly, safe place for self-expression," Nicky Jackson Colaco, Instagram public policy chief, told The Washington Post in a statement. "We have slowly begun to offer accounts with high volume comment threads the option to moderate their comment experience. As we learn, we look forward to improving the comment experience for our broader community.”
