Robot hackers could be the future of cybersecurity @DARPA #DARPACGC @defcon #technology #defcon

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

Hackers fighting hackers; wonder what will happen in another20 years when super humans start to become more and more introduced into the mainstream, in this space. Stating dark web hackers will not have access to BMI and other enhancing technologies is not reality either.


The final round of DARPA’s Cyber Grand Challenge pits computers against one another as human programmers watch the future of cybersecurity unfold.

Welcome to DARPA’s Cyber Grand Challenge

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

The ultimate test of wits in computer security occurs through open competition on the global Capture the Flag (CTF) tournament circuit. In CTF contests, experts reverse engineer software, probe its weaknesses, search for deeply hidden flaws, and create securely patched replacements.

On August 4, 2016, DARPA will hold the Cyber Grand Challenge, the world’s first all-computer CTF tournament. It will take place live on stage co-located with the DEF CON conference in Las Vegas. The public is invited to attend and observe as automated systems take the first steps towards a defensible, connected future.

New microfluidic chip replicates muscle-nerve connection

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, computing, genetics, neuroscience

MIT engineers have developed a microfluidic device that replicates the neuromuscular junction—the vital connection where nerve meets muscle. The device, about the size of a U.S. quarter, contains a single muscle strip and a small set of motor neurons. Researchers can influence and observe the interactions between the two, within a realistic, three-dimensional matrix.

The researchers genetically modified the neurons in the device to respond to light. By shining light directly on the neurons, they can precisely stimulate these cells, which in turn send signals to excite the muscle fiber. The researchers also measured the force the muscle exerts within the device as it twitches or contracts in response.

The team’s results, published online today in Science Advances, may help scientists understand and identify drugs to treat amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, as well as other neuromuscular-related conditions.
