FBI says people are using deepfakes to apply for remote tech jobs

Posted by in categories: employment, internet, robotics/AI

What else can deepfakes do?We’ve seen examples of deepfakes being used almost to change the course of history when a Zelensky footage emerged back in March and told the Ukrainian army to lay down arms amid the Russian invasion. Fortunately, it was sloppy, and the army didn’t buy that. And now, if you consider what happens when a post-covid world that birthed many remote job opportunities for digital nomads merges with AI, The FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) has t… See more.


The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has warned that some people are using deepfakes to apply for remote tech jobs.

An off-grid Starlink user achieves ‘infinite WiFi’ with 300 watts of solar

Posted by in categories: internet, satellites, solar power, sustainability

SpaceX’s Starlink provided the fastest satellite internet in the world.

Starlink has been equally praised in recent months for helping civilians in Ukraine and criticized for making astronomical work harder to the point it might endanger humanity.

Metasurfaces Open the Door to Telekinesis and Telepathy With Technology

Posted by in categories: computing, internet, neuroscience

If you need the hardware.


A separate study used metasurfaces as a telephone of sorts to help two people text simple messages, all without lifting a finger.

Direct brain-to-brain communication isn’t new. Previous studies using non-invasive setups had participants playing 20 questions with their brain waves. Another study built a BrainNet for three volunteers, allowing them to play a Tetris-like game using brainwaves alone. The conduit for those mindmelds relied on cables and the internet. One new study asked if metasurfaces could do the same.

Physicists confront the neutron lifetime puzzle

Posted by in categories: chemistry, cosmology, internet, particle physics

To solve a long-standing puzzle about how long a neutron can “live” outside an atomic nucleus, physicists entertained a wild but testable theory positing the existence of a right-handed version of our left-handed universe. They designed a mind-bending experiment at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory to try to detect a particle that has been speculated but not spotted. If found, the theorized “mirror neutron”—a dark-matter twin to the neutron—could explain a discrepancy between answers from two types of neutron lifetime experiments and provide the first observation of dark matter.

“Dark matter remains one of the most important and puzzling questions in science—clear evidence we don’t understand all matter in nature,” said ORNL’s Leah Broussard, who led the study published in Physical Review Letters.

When Botnets Attack

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, internet, robotics/AI

By Chuck Brooks


Our Growing Digital Connected World — Made For Botnets

There are dire implications of having devices and networks so digitally interconnected when it comes to bot nets. Especially when you have unpatched vulnerabilities in networks. The past decade has recorded many botnet cyber-attacks. Many who are involved in cybersecurity will recall the massive and high profile Mirai botnet DDoS attack in 2016. Mirai was an IoT botnet made up of hundreds of thousands of compromised IoT devices, It targeted Dyn—a domain name system (DNS) provider for many well-known internet platforms in a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack. That DDoS attack sent millions of bytes of traffic to a single server to cause the system to shut down. The Dyn attacks leveraged Internet of Things devices and some of the attacks were launched by common devices like digital routers, webcams and video recorders infected with malware.

As chemical fertilizer shortages persist, peecycling — the process of recycling human urine — could increase the yield of nutrient-rich crops

Posted by in categories: chemistry, cybercrime/malcode, food, internet, military, satellites, sustainability

The need to find alternative sources for fertilizer have become urgent as chemical fertilizer shortages from the Ukrainian war threaten countries globally.


A Chinese military analyst suggested countermeasures for the Starlink satellite system developed by Musk’s SpaceX – including ways to hack or destroy the service.

China analyst urges possible attacks on Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, Elon Musk, internet, military, satellites

😳!


A Chinese military analyst suggested that Beijing should develop countermeasures for the Starlink satellite system developed by Elon Musk’s SpaceX — including ways to hack or even destroy the service during a time of conflict.

In a recent paper published in a China-based academic journal called Modern Defense Technology, analyst Ren Yuanzhen argued that China’s military needs to develop the capability of tracking each of the thousands of satellites set to comprise the Starlink constellations in the coming years.

Chicago Quantum Exchange takes first steps toward a future that could revolutionize computing and medicine

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, business, computing, internet, quantum physics

Flashes of what may become a transformative new technology are coursing through a network of optic fibers under Chicago.

Researchers have created one of the world’s largest networks for sharing —a field of science that depends on paradoxes so strange that Albert Einstein didn’t believe them.

The network, which connects the University of Chicago with Argonne National Laboratory in Lemont, is a rudimentary version of what scientists hope someday to become the internet of the future. For now, it’s opened up to businesses and researchers to test fundamentals of quantum information sharing.
