The most recent advancements in artificial intelligence systems like speech or face recognition are a result of neural networks – densely interconnected networks made up of simple information processors. Researchers have created a new type information processor that could allow more advanced devices to mimic the processing capabilities of the human brain.
For a long time, engineers strove to build ever more advanced microprocessors that have higher performance and lower power consumption. Engineers have now reached an important milestone with a chip which uses quantum computing, and can carry out billions of computations every second in the same size as the fastest processors of today.
With data breaches wreaking havoc upon Fortune 100 companies, ruining the reputations of high-powered executives, and forcing historic educational institutions to close the doors, safeguarding personal information has never been more crucial. Many security tools are ineffective and some are even risky. Now a team of cybersecurity researchers has come up with an effective and secure way to safeguard data from hackers.
Recent research suggests that disorganization rather than cost is the driving factor in improper IT disposal of hardware, thereby accelerating the issue of increasing e-waste. Also, Apple adds an OtterPilot feature to its Siri virtual assistant to transcribe customer relationship management meetings and automate CRM data entry.
