AT&T to Begin Testing Superfast 5G Mobile Network

Posted by in category: internet

Despite many other telecom companies expecting 5G networks to be rolled out around 2020, AT&T plans to begin testing their 5G network later this year.

American multinational telecommunications company AT&T recently announced that it is planning to test a 5G mobile network, a super fast network that is 100 times faster than our current 3G and LTE connections. Together with American semiconductor Intel and Swedish company Ericsson, the company will begin preliminary tests later this year.

Mazar BOT Can Erase Android Phones

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, internet, mobile phones, robotics/AI, security

Lookout for MAZAR Bot — Androids should be scared.


One interesting feature of Mazar is that it can not be installed on smartphones running Android with “Russian” selected as the operating system’s language.

The malware allows the attackers to spy on nearly every activity capable on an Android device, including establishing a backdoor connection, sending premium SMS messages, reading texts sent to the device, including bank authentication PINs.

“Ruth Porat has taken an unusual path to the tech world. Before becoming the chief financial officer at Google in May 2015 (and then at Alphabet, Google’s new parent company, a few months later), she held the same post at Morgan Stanley, where among other roles she worked closely with the U.S. government to sort out the troubles at the insurance corporation AIG and the mortgage-financing agencies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac during the 2008 financial crisis.”

Safeguarding Nigeria’s Investment In Telecoms Through Legal, Regulatory Enforcements

Posted by in categories: internet, law

A report published by the Internet Crime Complaint Centre, which is a partnership between the United States of America’s Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National White Collar Crime Centre, in 2010, revealed that Nigeria ranks third among the list of top 10 sources of cybercrime in the world.

This translates to 8 per cent, behind the United States’ 65 per cent and United Kingdom’s 9.9 per cent.

The publication also ranks Nigeria as the first in the African region as the target and origin of malicious cyber activities.

Where Artificial Intelligence Is Now and What’s Just Around the Corner

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biological, cybercrime/malcode, internet, robotics/AI, security, virtual reality

I believe that AI holds a lot of promise and many great things; however, we have to correct some very critical issues 1st before compound a huge issue that we have today. And, that is Cyber Security and re-establish trust with our consumers and customers. Without these 2 being fully addressed; you will compound these two challenges with AI plus run the risk of having an IoT that most people will not wish to use due to hackers, bad data, etc. Not to mention lawsuits for Wi-Fi connected robotics that were hacked and injured or worse some innocent person.

I believe need to ensure priorities are in order before we make things worse.


Unexpected convergent consequences…this is what happens when eight different exponential technologies all explode onto the scene at once.

Researchers develop error correction method for quantum computing based on Majorana fermions

Posted by in categories: computing, internet, particle physics, quantum physics

Theoretical physicists at MIT recently reported a quantum computer design featuring an array of superconducting islands on the surface of a topological insulator. They propose basing both quantum computation and error correction on the peculiar behavior of electrons at neighboring corners of these islands and their ability to interact across islands at a distance. “The lowest energy state of this system is a very highly entangled quantum state, and it is this state that can be used to encode and manipulate qubits,” says graduate student Sagar Vijay, lead co-author of the paper on the proposed system, with senior author Liang Fu, associate professor of physics at MIT, and Timothy H. Hsieh PhD ’15. As Vijay explains it, the proposed system can encode logical qubits that can be read by shining light on them. At the simplest level of explanation, the system can characterize the state of a quantum bit as a zero or a one based on whether there is an odd or even number of electrons associated with a superconducting quantum bit, but the underlying physical interactions that allow this are highly complex.

Incorporating Qubits In Solid State Devices Might Enhance Quantum Networks

Posted by in categories: internet, neuroscience, quantum physics, robotics/AI

Qubits in solid state devices for transmission across an Quantum Internet is a given in order to have great performance on a Quantum Network as well as help ensuring secured transmission of information across the net — this is a given and why Quantum is a must for supporting and securing things like AI, IoT, and other emerging technologies such as Brain Interface devices.

Without this technology; it will be very hard for industries, governments, and especially consumers to embrace and adopt full automated AI, brain interface devices, etc.


A research team from the Joint Quantum Institute have developed a way for qubits to interact with photons, which could ultimately lead to futuristic quantum networks. Theorists explained that such a solid state device could give birth to compact chip-integrated quantum circuits enabling gigahertz range bandwidths.

Satellites Will Beam Super-Fast Internet Worldwide

Posted by in categories: internet, satellites, space, transportation

Satellites in outer space will soon provide broadband internet to some remote regions of the world, thanks to a company called ViaSat, in partnership with Boeing.

By 2019, three ViaSat satellites will dispatch a whopping one-terabit internet connection to obscure residential areas in the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. They will also provide connectivity to airplanes in flight and even maritime vessels in the middle of the oceans, which have always previously been drastically removed from anything approaching broadband.

Presently in development at Boeing, ViaSat’s three-satellite system will reportedly offer double the capacity of all the 400 communications satellites already in orbit around the Earth combined. It’s existing technology, just re-executed to be way more efficient.
