Elon Musk Says ‘Hyperloop’ Tunnel Is Now Just a Normal Car Tunnel Because ‘This Is Simple and Just Works’ Adversarial AI: Cybersecurity battles are coming. According to the RAND Corporation, a longtime mainstay of the military establishment, "cyber warfare involves the actions by a nation-state or international organization to attack and attempt to damage another nation's computers or information networks through, for example, computer viruses or denial-of-service attacks.
" During my recent CXOTalk conversation (episode #324) with one of the top cybersecurity experts in the world, Stuart McClure, the conversation turned to cyber warfare and adversarial AI (also known as offensive AI). Stuart is author of the highly respected book, Hacking Exposed, and CEO of security firm Cylance.
The company uses AI and machine learning, rather than pre-defined malware signatures, to prevent cyber-attacks. Using Blockchain, IoT Sensors and Food-Sensing Tech to Address Food Safety Concerns. New emerging traceability technologies including Internet-of-Things (IoT) sensors, blockchain and food-sensing technologies, have the potential to support the positive transformation of the food system, according to a new research by the World Economic Forum (WEF).
Food holds a critical role in human societies, yet inefficiencies in the supply chain and the lack of product and supply chain visibility are causing serious food safety and waste concerns. Nearly one-third of global food production is wasted, yet more than 800 million people are chronically undernourished. Meanwhile, the World Health Organization estimates that 600 million people fall ill and 420,000 die each year due to contaminated food. In addition, food systems are responsible for 25% of global greenhouse-gas emissions while climate change in turn threatens up to 25% of crop yields. And a rising global population, expected to reach almost 10 billion by 2050, exacerbates the already strained food systems. Crypto Expert Predicts the End of ICOs; Advent of STOs. Bitcoin and Blockchain expert Sean Brizendine said he believes the world is watching the end of initial coin offerings (ICOs), and moving towards the Securitized Token Offerings (STOs).
"The STOs will dominate the market place and eventually do away with the ICOs. We are currently experiencing a cleaning up of the Market," said Brizendine, who is a certified IIB Council blockchain professional. He made the remarks while presenting expert opinion on the ICO Market Weekly Review, a weekly research data published by Icobench about the ICO market and the blockchain community. The ICO Market situation is going through a huge change, according to him. The current situation is that anyone could run an ICO. The Big Read: Rise of the machine — how technology is disrupting Singapore’s law firms. SINGAPORE — Last year, a man-versus-machine showdown took place in the United States: Twenty top corporate lawyers from across the country were pitted against an artificial intelligence (AI) software developed by legal technology firm LawGeex, where they reviewed and approved everyday contracts over a period of two months.
The results were astounding: The AI notched a 94 per cent accuracy rate, compared to the human lawyers’ 85 per cent. For one of the tasks — to review five non-disclosure agreements — the five human lawyers took more than 90 minutes. The longest time taken by an individual lawyer was 156 minutes and the shortest 51 minutes. In contrast, the AI took a mere 26 seconds. The diet to save lives, the planet and feed us all? Image copyrightGetty Images A diet has been developed that promises to save lives, feed 10 billion people and all without causing catastrophic damage to the planet.
Scientists have been trying to figure out how we are going to feed billions more people in the decades to come. Their answer - "the planetary health diet" - does not completely banish meat and dairy. But it is recommending we get most of our protein from nuts and legumes (such as beans and lentils) instead. Their diet needs an enormous shift in what we pile on to our plates and for us to turn to foods that we barely eat. Businessinsider. New 2D sensors can cover any smooth surface. Share this Article.
