We accept the fact that we are constantly being recorded because we expect this to have virtually no impact on our lives. But this balance may soon be upended by advancements in facial recognition technology. Soon anybody with a high-resolution camera and the right software will be able to determine your identity. That it will have serious implications for your privacy. Source : Facial recognition will soon end your anonymity Full article in MarketWatch FindFace, from...

China’s Emerging Cyberspace Strategy & Power

»Posted by on Mai 25, 2016 in ? White space ¿ | Commentaires fermés sur China’s Emerging Cyberspace Strategy & Power

A closer look at China’s cyber strategy, and what it means for the world. China has been the center of attention on cyber issues and one of the very few countries yet to publish a report on its cyberspace strategy. People outside China who are eager to understand its cyber strategy are only disappointed by the lack of viable channels to find information they want. Such an information deficit has given rise to misunderstandings and misperceptions about what China would do and where it is heading in the cyber world.

Cypherpunk culture & Blockchain Technologies

by: J J Campuzano The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) bill was introduced in the U.S. Senate on July 10, 2014, and passed in the Senate October 27, 2015. This bill was jammed into the year spending bill, becoming very unlikely to be voted down as this would have led into a government shutdown; so it came to be that it was signed into law by President Barack Obama on December 18, 2015. In light of the passing of this egregious law, that represents a very imminent threat to our privacy, is Source : Cypherpunk culture & Blockchain...

What Is a Robot, Really? – The Atlantic

»Posted by on Mar 30, 2016 in ? White space ¿ | Commentaires fermés sur What Is a Robot, Really? – The Atlantic

The year is 2016. Robots have infiltrated the human world. We built them, one by one, and now they are all around us. Soon there will be many more of them, working alone and in swarms. One is no larger than a single grain of rice, while another is larger than a prairie barn. These machines can be angular, flat, tubby, spindly, bulbous, and gangly. Not all of them have faces. Not all of them have bodies. And yet they can do things once thought impossible for machine. They vacuum carpets, zip up winter coats, paint cars, organize warehouses, mix drinks, play beer pong, waltz across a school gymnasium, limp like wounded animals, write and publish stories, replicate abstract expressionist art, clean up nuclear waste, even dream. Except, wait. Are these all really...
