The Rise of Hacking and Phishing in 2018 — Where Are We Headed?

Posted by in category: Uncategorized

Recent studies show that 1 out of every 100 emails sent globally has malicious intent.

This is one of the many statistics that illustrate the rise in hacking and phishing. The subject of phishing, in particular, has played big roles and some of the largest data breaches recently.

An example of this would be the 2014 Sony Pictures breach perpetrated is to be believed by North Korea per the US Department of Justice. in this instance, it only took one email being opened by an employee to provide malicious actors a way to take control of Sony’s network.

A common thing we see among phishing attacks is impersonating an actual employee inside of the business. Some Phishing messages have even been reported as coming from the CEO of the company and play off of existing relationships to convince the victim to part with confidential information.

Celebrating the Holidays With a Song Written and Sung by an AI

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

It’s finally the last month of the year and you know what that means: the holiday flood known as Christmas. Celebrated by many, it’s a time of the year where presents are exchanged and songs are sung. Only, this year, one of those songs won’t be sung (let alone written) by a human being. Nope, this time an artificial intelligence is giving it a go!


In the spirit of Christmas, listen to the carolling tune of an artificial intelligence as it attempts to capture the very essence of what makes this holiday so beloved.

The Key to Understanding AI May be Buried in the Laws of Physics

Posted by in categories: mathematics, physics, robotics/AI, space

Deep learning has been making it possible for powerful machines to approximate and imitate abilities and techniques once thought to be uniquely human. Mathematicians have struggled to explain how they work so well and may now get some answers by looking outside mathematics and into the nature of the universe.

Scientists May Have Halted Blindness Caused by This Rare Genetic Disease

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics, neuroscience

D esigner therapies are treatments tailored to a specific disease, and nowhere is the need greater for new therapies than in a group of nervous system disorders, known as “neurodegenerative diseases.”

Many of these diseases are common and well-known, such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease. However, some are very rare, genetic disorders that are the consequence of a defective gene. In all these diseases, a mutant protein that misfolds causes the degeneration and death of neurons. One effective therapeutic strategy is to prevent the rogue protein from ever being made.

Spinocerebellar ataxia type 7 (SCA7) is one such disease in which nerves in different parts of the brain, including the eye, degenerate, which leads to blindness and difficulty walking, speaking, and balancing. SCA7 is dominantly inherited — which means that you just need one bad copy of the mutation to cause disease. The disease occurs when a short section of DNA that encodes ataxin-7 gene is erroneously repeated — like a word in a book printed two or three times. In this case, three chemical units of the DNA sequence — C-A-G — are repeated over and over.
