Hackers breached Florida health care system, potentially exposing data on 1.3 million people

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, finance, health, law

Hackers breached the computer networks of a southeast Florida health care system in October and may have accessed sensitive personal and financial information on over 1.3 million people, the health care system announced this week.

Social Security numbers, patient medical history and bank account information are among the data that have been exposed in the breach of Broward Health, a network of over 30 health care facilities serving patients across roughly 2 million-person Broward County, Florida, according to a notice the health care provider filed with the Office of the Maine Attorney General.

About 470 of the data breach victims live in Maine. Like other states, Maine law requires organizations that hold state residents’ personal data to file a disclosure when they’ve been hacked.

How DevOps platform Zeet accelerates application deployment

Posted by in categories: finance, robotics/AI, security

Today, technical decision-makers at companies, whether big or small, try to look for flexible ways to speed up application development and ensure long-term scalability for their engineering teams. Configuring solutions such as AWS requires a team of in-house experts, which is expensive and takes time to build. In fact, more than 77% of all tech companies run into DevOps challenges across the board, including cost, risks, security, optimization of the deployment pipeline, and scaling.

San Francisco-based Zeet, a platform that solves DevOps challenges and accelerates application deployment for startups, has raised $2 million in a seed round of funding led by venture capital firm Race Capital. The company plans to use the funding, which also saw participation from GGV Capital, Founders Inc, and multiple engineering leaders, to build out its teams across areas ranging from engineering to marketing and meet growing demand from customers.

Founded in 2020 by Johnny Dallas and Zihao Zhang, Zeet strives to tackle these bottlenecks through automation. The solution connects to a cloud account and automates traditionally manual DevOps tasks, allowing a team to quickly go from code to a scalable application.

Can The Pharmaceutical Companies Use Basic Aging Biology To Develop Drugs For Age-Related Diseases?

Posted by in categories: finance, life extension

The University of Copenhagen in Denmark is a very unique place. Apart from being one of the oldest universities in Scandinavia, it is also one of the top universities in the world. So far, 39 Nobel laureates have been affiliated with the University and it sports a spectacular center for healthy aging which hosts the Biology of Aging lab. In September 2021 the University of Copenhagen hosted the 8th annual Aging Research and Drug Discovery (ARDD) meeting.

This year’s ARDD meeting, held at the Ceremonial Hall of the University, was the largest conference on aging and biopharma in the world for the second consecutive year.

Introducing the Trivergence: Transformation driven by blockchain, AI and the IoT

Posted by in categories: blockchains, business, climatology, economics, finance, government, internet, robotics/AI, sustainability

Trivergence is starting to affect every industry. In financial services, the wallet has become a smart app that can collect data and learn. On a blockchain, users can exchange, save, borrow, invest and protect this digital money peer-to-peer without the intermediation of banks. In manufacturing, 3D printers are manufacturing aircraft parts in a Boeing facility with a blockchain network facilitating all the patented files, contracting and payments peer-to-peer. Telecommunications companies are no longer negotiating complex, costly and ever-changing roaming agreements, but using blockchain-based smart contracts among providers to automate the web of payments and settlement globally.

Over time, the Trivergence will usher in a next-generation internet where nearly every animate and inanimate object on Earth generates data, a distributed ledger records and secures this data and AI analyzes the data, communicates with the objects, alerts their owners and continuously adjusts and improves the efficiency of the economy and the sustainability of its effects on the environment.

New business models enabled by this Trivergence are beginning to disrupt many industries and provide platforms for innovation in the economy for decades ahead. This second era has weighty implications for every business, government and individual, as well as technology strategy, architecture and leadership. If we can overcome the dark side — and that’s a big “if” — this Trivergence helps us reclaim our digital identities, effectively fight climate change and help solve some of the world’s most intractable problems.
