Scientists recognize intruders in noise

## MATHEMATICS • MAY 24, 2021

# *Noise is commonly discarded, but identifying patterns in noise can be very useful.*

*Generalize the Hearst exponent by adding more coefficients in order to get a more complete description of the changing data. This makes it possible to find patterns in the data that are usually considered noise and were previously impossible to analyze.*

Interest in such plush panic rooms is skyrocketing, he said. His firm started offering high-end shelters and the like a decade ago — of the 232 it’s built so far, 200 were commissioned in the last five years.


One $14 million panic-room project built in the San Jose Valley includes a bowling alley and indoor pool.

Misconfiguration of third party mobile apps exposes the data of 100 million users

Posted by in category: security

Despite the obvious benefits of contemporary cloud-based, mobile application development solutions—such as cloud storage, notification management, real-time databases, and analytics—many developers of these solutions fail to properly take into account the potential security risks involved when these apps are misconfigured.

Most recently, Check Point Research has discovered misconfigurations and implementation issues that have exposed the data of 100 million mobile application users. This kind of exposure places both the users as well as the at risk of reputation threats and security damage. In this instance, the developers left open notification managers, storage locations and real-time databases to access by attackers, thus leaving 100 million users vulnerable.

In terms of real-time databases, can help mobile app users sync their data to the cloud in real time. However, when developers do not correctly implement this service with authentication, any user can theoretically access that database, including all mobile customer data. In fact, researchers expressed surprise at facing no obstacles to accessing these open databases for certain apps on Google Play. Some of the aspects obtainable in this case were device locations, email addresses, passwords, private chats and user identifiers, among other attack vectors. Such vulnerabilities leave all of these users at risk for fraud and identity theft.

China showcases artificial intelligence advances

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, security

Thank you to China for trying to surpass the USA in Ai, otherwise they’d never open the wallet to fund this AI research. AGI 2025!!


China is showcasing its advances in the field of artificial intelligence — at an annual tech-themed forum.
It is being held in the port city of Tianjin.
Super computers, rockets and robots are among the innovations on display.
The event comes just months after the United States National Security Commission said that China is on track to overtake the US as the world’s AI superpower.
Al Jazeera’s Katrina Yu reports.

Magnetoelectric Chips to Power a New Generation of More Efficient Computing Devices

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, computing, security

Harnessing the Hum of Fluorescent Lights for More Efficient Computing

The property that makes fluorescent lights buzz could power a new generation of more efficient computing devices that store data with magnetic fields, rather than electricity.

A team led by University of Michigan researchers has developed a material that’s at least twice as “magnetostrictive” and far less costly than other materials in its class. In addition to computing, it could also lead to better magnetic sensors for medical and security devices.

A security researcher found Wi-Fi vulnerabilities that have existed since the beginning

Posted by in categories: internet, security

They’ve been dubbed “FragAttacks”.


The researcher, Mathy Vanhoef, calls the collection of vulnerabilities “FragAttacks,” with the name being a mashup of “fragmentation” and “aggregation.” He also says the vulnerabilities could be exploited by hackers, allowing them to intercept sensitive data, or show users fake websites, even if they’re using Wi-Fi networks secured with WPA2 or even WPA3. They could also theoretically exploit other devices on your home network.
