Android Development VS Web Development | Reality

Android or Web? So basically, I will say that totally is an independent choice. In what does your interests lies? So here are some questions that will let you decide your priorities??? Am I a newbie? What will matter more in my resume📝? What will guarantee me an excellent placement? Do I love intensive programming? How far I am willing …

Casting Intelligence

When is the time for a new revolution in prototyping technology ? When l was having a casting class in my Mechanical Engineering college, that made me wondering with somehow a surprised face about the future of this field. Casting & prototyping generally nowadays, whatever the technology invented (like 3D printing) is all about modeling something into a shape from …

Phones, Wearables Combine to Assess Worker Performance

Dartmouth University researchers have developed a mobile-sensing system that judges employee performance using smartphones, wearable fitness trackers, and a custom app. In the new system, a smartphone tracks physical activity, location, phone usage, and ambient light; the fitness tracker monitors heart functions, sleep, stress, and body measurements, including weight and calorie consumption. In addition, location beacons placed in the home …

Plants Are Oldest Sensors in the World. Could They Be the Future of Computers?

MIT’s Harpreet Sareen suggests using plants as a new building material for computer circuits. Based on previous work using leaves as motion detectors and signal transmitters, Sareen’s Phytoactuators project enables computers to send electronic signals back to plants, transforming them into alert systems. “Our vision is to have this layer of digital interaction within the plants themselves so we can not only …

Investors Urge AI Startups to Inject Early Dose of Ethics

Artificial intelligence (AI) startup investors are urging companies to improve their products from an ethical perspective, using a code of ethics to guide operations, a tool to explain how software makes decisions, and best practices that feature consistent, open communication and immediate feedback about algorithmic output. For example, Analytics Ventures’ startups employ a tool called Klear to forensically analyze why …

First ‘Quantum Drone’ Takes Off

Researchers at Nanjing University in China have developed a quantum drone to serve as an airborne node in a future quantum network. The eight-rotor, 35-kg. (77-lb.) octocopter is equipped with an onboard quantum communication system. During testing, the researchers demonstrated that the quantum drone can operate while hovering in midair for 40 minutes at a time. The device is capable …

Facebook Plans Global Financial System Based on Cryptocurrency

Facebook has unveiled a plan to create an alternative financial system that relies on a cryptocurrency called Libra. The effort, announced with a range of partners including MasterCard and Uber, will have to overcome concern that Facebook does not effectively protect the private information of its users, and thus cannot be trusted to handle financial transactions. Facebook plans to launch …

The Quantum Internet Is Emerging, One Experiment at a Time

Quantum physicists want to build quantum networks sporting full-blown quantumness, where information is created, stored, and moved around in ways that mirror the bizarre behavior of the quantum world. Although a fully realized quantum network is still a far-off vision, recent breakthroughs in transmitting, storing, and manipulating quantum information have convinced some physicists that a simple proof-of-principle is imminent. From …

HSM Vulnerabilities Impact Banks, Cloud Providers, Governments

Researchers at hardware wallet maker Ledger discovered vulnerabilities that can be exploited remotely to retrieve sensitive data stored inside Hardware Security Modules (HSMs). HSMs are hardware-isolated devices that used advanced cryptography to store, manipulate, and work with sensitive information such as digital keys, passwords, and PINs. The vulnerabilities allow a remote unauthenticated attacker to take full control of the vendor’s …
