The latest advances in artificial intelligence systems such as speech or face recognition have come courtesy of neural networks, a densely interconnected meshes of simple information processors. Researchers have developed a new kind of information processor that could enable more intelligent devices by emulating the processing power of a human brain.
Engineers have been working for years to create microprocessors that are stronger and use less power. Engineers have now reached the next level with an electronic chip that utilizes quantum computing that can perform billions of calculations per second in the same package size as today’s fastest processors.
With data breaches wreaking havoc on Fortune 100 companies, ruining the reputations and image of high-powered executives, and forcing historic educational institutions to close, protecting personal information is more crucial than ever before. However, many security tools fail and some are downright risky. Now, a team of cybersecurity researchers has come up with an effective and secure way to safeguard information from hackers.
According to a study it is more important than cost in determining the way IT equipment should be disposed of. This has resulted in a rise in e-waste. Apple has also added an OtterPilot function to its Siri virtual assistant, which will automate CRM data entry and transcribes meetings for managing customer relationships.
