The Independent - Tech

The Nintendo Switch could be easily hacked into because it relies on old software, according to security experts. The console has now been available for nearly two weeks, and hackers are discovering vulnerabilities inside the system's software. The most worrying was found by one developer on Twitter who noticed that the WebKit browser engine, which the Switch uses for a variety of features, can be broken into and taken over. If that happened, hackers could steal data from the device or use it for other malicious purposes.

Neural networks are changing the Internet. Inspired by the networks of neurons inside the human brain, these deep mathematical models can learn discrete tasks by analyzing enormous amounts of data. They've learned to recognize faces in photos, identify spoken commands, and translate text from one language to another. They're helping to choose what you see when you query the Google search engine or visit your Facebook News Feed. All this is sharpening the behavior of online services.
