According to FAA Administrator Michael Huerta in his testimony before a Senate committee, drones “possess a wider operational range than manned aircraft, with a wider number of different physical and operational characteristics. Some UAS are the size of a fist and fly at low altitudes and slow speeds. Others have glider-like bodies with the wing span of a 737 and can fly above 60,000 feet. Many can fly and hover longer than manned aircraft.” A piece for The Washington Post in 2011 called “Drones on the home front” showed four different types of drones used for domestic surveillance. And the PBS series NOVA, in an episode entitled “Rise of the Drones,” demonstrated an aerial surveillance system purportedly capable of high-resolution monitoring and recording of an entire city.
It's time for a common sense security framework - Help Net Security. Privacy Rights Clearinghouse maintains a database of every data breach made public since 2005, and as the total number of records rapidly approaches one billion, board members, infosec leaders, and consumers are all asking the same question: Why does this keep happening?
It’s not like we don’t collectively understand how to secure our systems and networks. NIST maintains nearly two hundred special publications focused on computer security, and the ISO 27000 series contains dozens of standards for securing information systems. What’s more, multiple industries have specific standards and regulations targeting information security and risk management controls. Retail has PCI. Healthcare has HIPAA. Still, the question remains: Why does this keep happening? Three key factors First, organizations of all sizes are drowning in the details. Third, these control sets are often presented without any context around priority. Common Sense Security Framework (CSSF)

Reuters / Thomas Peter The UK government is planning to announce new measures to help artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics researchers to commercialise their breakthroughs.
The Department for Culture, Media, and Sport (DCMS) announced on Monday that it will include a number of AI-related proposals in its upcoming Digital Strategy document, which will be unveiled in Parliament on Wednesday. As part of the Digital Strategy, DCMS said it expects to announce an AI review that will be led Southampton University professor Wendy Hall and ex-IBM scientist Jérôme Pesenti, who is now the CEO of London healthcare startup Benevolent.AI. The government is also expected to announce a £17.3 million investment into robotics and AI that will be given to UK universities via the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The government department did not specify how long the review is likely to take.
Harvard’s Octobot is the first autonomous machine to be made with all soft robotics. For years roboticists have been looking into using softer materials for parts rather than the usual metal and plastic — sometimes even building entirely soft robots.
But this Octobot from Harvard is the first that not only contains no hard parts but is also entirely autonomous. Robert Wood and Jennifer Lewis, both at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, describe the Octobot in a paper published today in Nature. The creation won’t be winning any awards for agility, but given that autonomy is generally created by a computer governing a robot’s movements, this is a significant milestone. Des machines qui piratent des machines : la DARPA nous donne un aperçu du futur. La semaine dernière, une compétition inédite organisée par le gouvernement américain a vu s’affronter pour la première fois différentes IA dans une épreuve de Capture The Flag.
La bande-annonce Tron-esque d’un futur où la sécurité informatique serait entièrement gérée par les machines. Dans le monde du piratage informatique, la compétition de capture du drapeau (« Capture The Flag », ou CTF) est aux hackers ce que la partie de mölkky est aux hipsters du dimanche massés quai de la Loire : un passe-temps agréable, une excellente occasion d’évaluer ses compétences et surtout, une manière de sociabiliser tout en restant dans un entre-soi confortable.
Eleven Reasons To Be Excited About The Future of Technology. Eleven Reasons To Be Excited About The Future of Technology “The strongest force propelling human progress has been the swift advance and wide diffusion of technology.” — The Economist In the year 1820, a person could expect to live less than 35 years, 94% of the global population lived in extreme poverty, and less that 20% of the population was literate.
Today, human life expectancy is over 70 years, less that 10% of the global population lives in extreme poverty, and over 80% of people are literate. Privacycalendar. Understanding the differences between AI, machine learning, and deep learning. With huge strides in AI—from advances in the driverless vehicle realm, to mastering games such as poker and Go, to automating customer service interactions—this advanced technology is poised to revolutionize businesses.
Des chercheurs découvrent une faille pour déverrouiller des millions de véhicules Volkswagen. Des chercheurs de l’université de Birmingham et de l’entreprise allemande Kasper & Oswald ont découvert une faille permettant de déverrouiller à distance des voitures Volkswagen sans posséder leurs clés.
Elle pourrait concerner plus de 100 millions de véhicules, soit la quasi-totalité de ceux vendus par l’entreprise ces vingt dernières années. Dans un article publié cette semaine à l’occasion de la conférence Usenix à Austin consacrée à la sécurité informatique, les quatre chercheurs expliquent comment ils parviennent à intercepter le signal de déverrouillage d’un véhicule et à en cloner le « bip ». EU Data Transfer Plan Requires Stronger Privacy Policies.

Koo Aug. 3 — U.S. companies considering enlisting in the recently opened European Union-U.S. Privacy Shield data transfer program must ensure their privacy policies meet more robust data protection requirements than the predecessor U.S. -EU Safe Harbor program. AI Open Letter - FLI - Future of Life Institute. Artificial intelligence (AI) research has explored a variety of problems and approaches since its inception, but for the last 20 years or so has been focused on the problems surrounding the construction of intelligent agents – systems that perceive and act in some environment. In this context, “intelligence” is related to statistical and economic notions of rationality – colloquially, the ability to make good decisions, plans, or inferences.
The adoption of probabilistic and decision-theoretic representations and statistical learning methods has led to a large degree of integration and cross-fertilization among AI, machine learning, statistics, control theory, neuroscience, and other fields.
