How artificial intelligence will impact the role of security pros

Posted by in categories: quantum physics, robotics/AI, security

Granted AI performs well at identifying, predicting how to respond through analyzing patterns and information, etc. However, AI is not completely hacker proof at this point. AI still requires close monitoring by humans. The bottom line is until the existing net infrastructure and digital platforms are Quantum based; it will be hard to make AI hacker proof and fully autonomous due to the risks with the existing digital technology.

In the new battle between man and machine, how does artificial intelligence impact the security professional?

IBM Watson is Working to Bring AI to the Blockchain

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, computing, finance, internet, quantum physics, robotics/AI, security

I consider this as a nice interim step in maturing the digital platform environment for financial services. However, once Quantum Computing, Quantum Internet, etc. is available to the masses such as in China, etc. this solution will fail in protecting financial data and other PPI related information as recent research is showing us.

IBM is currently attempting to merge artificial intelligence and the blockchain into a single, powerful prototype.

Self-Driving Robot Promises To Revolutionize Local Deliveries

Posted by in categories: drones, government, robotics/AI, security

We’re already seeing amazing things in the delivery services space for consumers with drones and self-navigating delivery services by companies like Dominos, etc. I cannot wait until we see more self check in hotels, resorts, and more 24×7 automated stores. Everything will be great, as long as security is great.

This self-driving robot can take the grocery-shopping burden off your shoulders and deliver your goods to your doorstep. Starship Technologies has already launched the intelligent robot and delivery trials have started in Greenwich, London.

Starship Technologies was founded by the same people who founder Skype. Ahti Heinla and Janus Friis plans to reshape local deliveries and also lend a hand in zero-emission deliveries worldwide.

Quantum computing: Game changer or security threat?

Posted by in categories: computing, finance, quantum physics, security

Definitely a game changer; security threat depends on who gets the technology adopted on a broad scale first prior to other countries (China? USA? Australia? Russia? UK? CAN?, etc.)

Quantum computing offers financial institutions the prospect of faster transactions and lower trading costs, but is it also a threat to security?

Seeing the Light

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, security, virtual reality

Augmented and Virtual Reality are two areas that tech companies and IT shops can make huge impacts in multiple areas. Enterprise Apps and Services such as with ERP & CRM solutions, Content & Media Management, BI, Security, Testing, Training, etc. List just goes on and on. For Consumers it is everything from theme parks, to movies, to home theaters & streaming TV/ Videos, etc. The real question who will get there 1st on the enterprise apps & services piece as well as who has the most to offer in all areas?

Another concept to think about is how can VR be leveraged in security screening and identity management more as well as leveraged more in electronic currency and transactions in the near future.

Growing numbers of manufacturing professionals in the automotive space are embracing augmented-reality technology, leveraging powerful new tools to optimize efficiency and minimize mistakes.

Do humans trust robots too much?

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, security

This study is bunk! And, here is the reason why: first, the robot was setup as a robot repeseanting as part of the facilities service where visitors/ people where at and followed the “facilities” robot as their escort in the building, much like you would do if I or someone else was wearing a building security jacket and badge who told you to follow us. So, this is very misleading study.

If you were in a burning building and a robot appeared to rescue you, would you follow it?

Meta-Materials Bring Us Another Step Closer to an Invisibility Cloak

Posted by in categories: computing, materials, quantum physics, security, transportation

Next to Quantum and Biocomputing, this is one of my favorites. Cloak material to avoid radar. Unfortunatley, we cannot have access to the material for our autos; but it would be nice to have on my car sometimes when I am running late and having to drive quickly somewhere.

Two separate teams of engineers, both conducting research into meta-materials (composites not found in nature) with the intent of developing a flexible, stretchable and tunable meta-skin, are sharing their discoveries with the world. Although the two developments revolve around the same premise—manipulating electromagnetic waves so that the surface that banquets an object becomes invisible—a few exciting differences between the teams’ approaches sets their research apart.
