Cyber Daily: France's Plan to Use Artificial Intelligence to Monitor Terrorism Sparks Privacy Concerns


AI spy: On Wednesday, France's Prime Minister Jean Castex said the government plans to submit a bill to parliament seeking permanent authority to order telecoms firms to monitor not just telephone data but also the full URLs of specific webpages their users visit in real time. Government algorithms would alert intelligence officials when certain criteria are met, such as an internet user visiting a specific sequence of pages. French Interior Minister Gerard Darmanin said intelligence officials would need approval from him, the prime minister and an outside agency to unmask a person flagged for his or her browsing. One portion of the bill would allow French intelligence officials to use older intelligence data, including data the government isn't currently allowed to retain, to train AI systems to look for unforeseen patterns and develop new tools. An interior ministry official said such data would be anonymized, though privacy experts say anonymizing data so it can't be later reattributed is difficult.

Securing Amazon SageMaker Studio internet traffic using AWS Network Firewall


Amazon SageMaker Studio is a web-based fully integrated development environment (IDE) where you can perform end-to-end machine learning (ML) development to prepare data and build, train, and deploy models. Like other AWS services, Studio supports a rich set of security-related features that allow you to build highly secure and compliant environments. One of these fundamental security features allows you to launch Studio in your own Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC). This allows you to control, monitor, and inspect network traffic within and outside your VPC using standard AWS networking and security capabilities.

It's About Time We Broke Up Data Science


It's highly unlikely that business owners are going to read this and begin to change their perspectives on how we define Data Science. Not because I doubt my influence or anything, but since I'm aware that the majority of my readers are at the beginning of their Data Science journey -- I really dislike the term "aspiring" -- but here is what I wish to tell you all… Stop trying to be good at everything in Data Science, and pick 1 (max 2) area's you want to specialize in and get really good at it! Let's face it... Breaking into Data Science is difficult for a number of reasons. However, I've come to a realization recently that much of the difficulty lies in the fact that the term "Data Scientist" encompasses so many different technical qualities that make it virtually impossible for one individual to meet all these criteria and stay up to date in each area -- and that's okay! I've been listening and speaking to Vin Vashishta, Chief Data Scientist and LinkedIn Top Voice 2019, and he believes that for roles to be defined better then more specialization amongst practitioners must occur.
