Software will reshape our world in the next decade – TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

As I was wrapping up a Zoom meeting with my business partners, I could hear my son joking with his classmates in his online chemistry class. I have to say this is a very strange time for me: As much as I love my family, in normal times, we never spend this much time together. In normal times, governments, businesses and schools would never agree to shut everything down. In normal times, my doctor wouldn't agree to see me over video conferencing. No one would stand outside a grocery store, looking down to make sure they were six feet apart from one another.


US Marines Bans Bitcoin Mining, Dating Apps In Government Devices

International Business Times

Bitcoin mining and dating apps are now banned in government-issued mobile devices in the United States Marine Corps. Citing privacy and security concerns, marines are also not allowed to install gambling apps or jailbreak their phones, according to a memo signed July 20. The marines are advised to check the list of prohibited apps and delete them. Additionally, they are advised to watch out for any application that records video or voice, monitors GPS, or access the user's contacts or calendars. These are risks, the memo said, that could disclose location or any important security information that should always be private.

For Robots, It's a Time to Shine (and Maybe Disinfect) Lisa Prevost The New York Times "…cleaning robots are having a moment in commercial real estate. Their creators are promoting the machines as cost-effective solutions to the cleaning challenges posed by the pandemic. They can be put to frequent use without requiring more paid labor hours, they are always compliant, and some can even provide the data to prove that they have scoured every inch assigned." The Quest to Liberate $300,000 of Bitcoin From an Old Zip File Lily Hay Newman Wired "In October, Michael Stay got a weird message on LinkedIn. A total stranger had lost access to his bitcoin private keys--and wanted Stay's help getting his $300,000 back. The Guy [as Stay calls him] had bought around $10,000 worth of bitcoin in January 2016, well before the boom. He had encrypted the private keys in a zip file and had forgotten the password. He was hoping Stay could help him break in."


Council Post: Why We Shouldn't Have AI Without Blockchain

#artificialintelligence

Co-CEO at Fluree, the scalable semantic graph database backed by blockchain technology. As AI continues to permeate the online world, it opens up a Pandora's box of unintended consequences. That's because unleashing AI on the current version of the internet and letting it feed on potentially inauthentic data can lead to devastation. Our increasing reliance on machine learning opens the floodgates for hackers and other bad actors to manipulate data and exploit algorithms in dangerous ways. From entering counterfeit products into the supply chain to changing software source code to meddling with voter registration databases, data tampering is already being used as a powerful weapon.

Digital Transformation: How to Be a Business in a Time of 4IR AI Blockchain Fintech - IntelligentHQ

#artificialintelligence

"When digital transformation is done right, it's like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, but when done wrong, all you have is a really fast caterpillar." "There is no alternative to digital transformation. Visionary companies will carve out new strategic options for themselves -- those that don't adapt, will fail."


Digital Transformation and the 4IR - AI, Blockchain, IoT, Fintech

#artificialintelligence

Digital Transformation and the 4IR – AI, Blockchain, IoT, Fintech is not a steady, fixed concept. It has evolved swiftly, over the course of various years, by gradual improvements of the technology, particularly the Internet, which fostered increasing digitization. Jeremy Rifkin, a US economist, futurist, and sociologist, who has analysed the shifts in society due to technology over the course of various decades, has written widely about the topic. He was the first one to tackle the impact of digital technologies and how these were triggering what he saw as a profound industrial shift. He described that shift, which he called "third industrial revolution", in his book "The Third Industrial Revolution; How Lateral Power is Transforming Energy, the Economy, and the World" (2011).
