The latest advancements in artificial intelligence systems such as facial recognition or speech have come courtesy of neural networks, densely interconnected networks of basic information processors. Researchers have come up with an entirely new type of information processor that could enable more intelligent devices by emulating the processing capabilities of a human brain.
For decades, engineers have strove to build ever more advanced microprocessors, with better performance and less power consumption. Now, they have achieved the next level with a chip which uses quantum computing that can perform billions of computations every second in the same size as today’s fastest processors.
With data breaches wreaking havoc upon Fortune 100 companies, ruining the reputations of powerful executives, and forcing historic educational institutions to shut down security of personal data is more crucial than ever before. Many security tools aren’t effective and some are even dangerous. A team of cybersecurity researchers has come up with an effective and secure way to safeguard information from hackers.
Recent research has revealed that disorganization more than cost is the primary reason for poor IT disposal of equipment, which is accelerating the problem of e-waste that is growing. Apple has also added an OtterPilot function to its Siri virtual assistant, which can automate the entry of CRM data and also transcribes meetings of customer relationship management.
