Couple Captures Rare Footage of a Giant Squid Swimming Off The Coast of Japan

Posted by in category: business

A pair of scuba divers has captured rare video and photos of a 2.5-meter (eight-foot) giant squid swimming in the waters off Japan’s west coast.

Earlier this month, Yosuke Tanaka and his wife Miki, who operate a diving business in Toyooka city in the Hyogo region, were alerted to the squid by a fishing equipment vendor who had spotted it in a bay.

IBM: Quantum computing poses an ‘existential threat’ to data encryption

Posted by in categories: business, computing, encryption, existential risks, quantum physics, security

Check out all the on-demand sessions from the Intelligent Security Summit here.

For years, encryption has played a core role in securing enterprise data. However, as quantum computers become more advanced, traditional encryption solutions and public-key cryptography (PKC) standards, which enterprise and consumer vendors rely on to secure their products, are at serious risk of decryption.

Today, IBM Institute for Business Value issued a new report titled Security in the Quantum Era, examining the reality of quantum risk and the need for enterprise adoption of quantum-safe capabilities to safeguard the integrity of critical applications and infrastructure as the risk of decryption increases.

Copenhagen Atomics submits molten salt SMR design

Posted by in categories: business, nuclear energy, security

UK Atomics, a subsidiary of the company applied to the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) for a GDA by the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) and the Environment Agency (EA). This assessment aims to assess the safety, security, and environmental protection aspects of any nuclear power plant design that is intended to be deployed in the UK.

In May 2021, BEIS opened the GDA process to advanced nuclear technologies, including small modular reactors (SMRs). Successful completion of the GDA culminates in the issue of a Design Acceptance Confirmation from the ONR and a Statement of Design Acceptability from the EA. Rolls-Royce SMR was the first vendor to submit an application for a GDA of an SMR design. Its 470 MWe pressurised water reactor design was accepted for review in March 2022. In December, GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy submitted a GDA entry application for its BWRX-300 SMR, and Holtec International has stated its intention to submit an application for its SMR-160 design.

UK Atomics molten salt reactor design uses unpressurised heavy water as a moderator, while the reactor is intended to burn nuclear waste while breeding new fuel from thorium. The company says, with an output of 100 MWt, it is small enough to allow for mass manufacturing and assembly line production.

This US state wants to phase out EVs instead of ICEs by 2035

Posted by in categories: business, employment, sustainability, transportation

The state introduced the resolution as a tribute to its oil and gas industry.

A U.S. state has decided to swim against the tide with its proposal to phase out all-electric vehicles from the state by 2035. You heard it right. Wyoming’s legislature is debating a resolution introduced on January 13, intended to pay tribute to its oil and gas industry which has created countless jobs and revenues over the decades.

In 2021, the state had produced 85.43 million barrels of crude oil, making it the eighth largest producer of oil among states in the U.S. Wyoming has a total population of just 577,000 people.

With the explosive growth of technology, businesses are more vulnerable than ever to malicious cyber attacks. And as cybercriminals become more sophisticated, new methods of attack are popping up left and right.

To add fuel to the fire, the average cost of a data breach increased from $3.86 million to $4.24 million in 2021. That’s costly enough to put most SMBs into the red. Not to mention the reputational damage it can cause for your brand.

Generative AI: From Data Generation to Creative Intelligence

Posted by in categories: business, information science, robotics/AI

A common idea that our creativity is what makes us uniquely human has shaped society but strides of progress made in the domain of Generative Artificial Intelligence question this very notion. Generative AI is an emerging field that involves the creation of original content or data using machine learning algorithms.

As we think about a future where humans and AI partner in iterative creative cycles, we consider how generative AI could impact current businesses and possibly create new ones. Up until recently, machines were relegated to analysis and cognitive roles, but today algorithms are improving at generating original content. These technologies are iterative in principle, one is built on top of the last one, and each new iteration enhances the algorithm and increases the potential for discovery exponentially.

The technology presents itself as a more refined and mature breed of AI that has sent investors into a frenzy and among all this emerges a clear market leader — OpenAI. Its flagship products-ChatGPT and DALL-E proved to be industry disruptors and brought generative AI tools to the masses. DALL-E allows people to generate and edit photo-realistic images simply by describing what they want to see, while ChatGPT does the same through a text medium.
