PC giant Microsoft has informed its staff not to use popular chat app and competitor Slack, adding it to a list of “prohibited and discouraged technology” comprised of software and services that it does not want employees using outside of specific circumstances, Geekwire reported on Friday.Geekwire wrote that while the list does cite the competitive rivalry between Microsoft and the other tools’ developers, the “prohibited” section specifically consists of software and services that could pose an IT security or intellectual property management risk.Here’s the entry on Slack, per Geekwire, which says that all versions of Slack but the Enterprise Grid version “do not provide required controls” to protect Microsoft’s IPs and employees.Microsoft advises that staff should use its internally developed Team software instead:Slack Free, Slack Standard and Slack Plus versions do not provide required controls to properly protect Microsoft Intellectual Property (IP).Existing users of these solutions should migrate chat history and files related to Microsoft business to Microsoft Teams, which offers the same features and integrated Office 365 apps, calling and meeting functionality.
The quality and speed at which videos can now be faked using neural networks and deep learning processes promises to make the upcoming presidential election even more of a nightmare.But by exploiting something overlooked in current deepfake techniques, researchers have found an automated way to spot fake videos.Deepfake videos are far from perfect right now.Created from giant libraries of images scraped from the Internet, they’re often generated at low resolutions (which helps hide imperfections) and appear overly compressed.But the technology is improving at a startling rate, and flaws in the process, like deepfake videos that were easy to spot because the subjects never blinked, are quickly improved to make them more and more believable.It’s an arms race that neither side is going to stand down from any time soon, but researchers from UC Berkeley and the University of Southern California believe they’ve developed the next weapon when it comes to battling, or simply just accurately identifying faked videos.

Over the past week temperatures in northern Greenland have been comparable to the weather in Seattle, causing the top layer of sea ice near the village of Qaanaaq to turn into the Arctic equivalent of a kiddie pool.Danish climate researcher Steffen Olsen took the above photo of a dogsled team wading through the meltwater, which quickly went viral online as a vivid illustration of global warming in action."Given how warm it was, it's easy to see why there was a lot melting," Ruth Mottram from the Danish Meteorological Institute explained via email."As the ice in this region is relatively thick and fracture-free, the melt water is unable to drain away through cracks in the ice as it would normally and hence the challenging conditions for the dogsleds."@SteffenMalskaer got the difficult task of retrieving our oceanographic moorings and weather station on sea ice in North West Greenland this year.Rapid melt and sea ice with low permeability and few cracks leaves the melt water on top.— Rasmus Tonboe (@RasmusTonboe) June 14, 2019
The man who wants to be our next Prime minister, whose last name rhymes with a very rude word, is getting really sick of the many Freudian slips that have been happening on live TV.You know the ones I'm talking about, where people talking about Jeremy Hunt accidentally blurt out 'Jeremy Cunt' and pretend to look embarrassed.Well apparently this may be causing some old schoolyard memories to resurface.Talking to the Daily Telegraph's Brexit podcast (because of course the Telegraph has a Brexit podcast), Mr Hunt has asked broadcasters to stop doing it.Because it's mean, and it turns out he was regularly called Jeremy Cunt by other kids at school.Personally I think people should just grow up and get over the fact that my last name rhymes with a rather unpleasant word.”
One of the oldest services still remains the best — we’re talking about Hulu.With an extensive library of films and shows, and now its Live TV add on, Hulu is still one of the top streaming platforms in the U.S.Founded in 2007, it is currently owned by Disney and Comcast, with the Walt Disney Company owning a majority stake.Although there have been plans to make the streaming service international dating all the way back to 2010, no Canadian, European or any other versions have materialized yet, likely due to content licensing issues.To top it all off, Hulu is easy to access on almost any device on your choice.As you would expect, you can stream Hulu content on the web and through the service’s Google Play and App Store apps.
It has never been more crucial for businesses to implement and demonstrate their commitment to cybersecurity; with data increasingly being used to make significant business decisions.With GDPR now in full force, organisations must demonstrate to stakeholders that they are making a credible effort to ensure that security is built into the heart of business operations.Vulnerabilities in the data supply chainOrganisations must first understand what potential vulnerabilities look like within a data supply chain, so they can be recognised and mitigated.As cyberattacks increase in sophistication, they are likely to be so subtle that they don’t visibly impact a system; providing misleading information to force erroneous decisions.Ironically, whilst this type of attack will be very difficult to detect, early identification is vital in order to prevent significant damage.

Researchers have developed a new technique that uses microneedle patches to collect DNA from plant tissues in one minute, rather than the hours needed for conventional techniques."When farmers detect a possible plant disease in the field, such as potato late blight, they want to know what it is right away; rapid detection can be important for addressing plant diseases that spread quickly," says Qingshan Wei, an assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at North Carolina State University and co-corresponding author of a paper on the work."One of the obstacles to rapid detection is the amount of time it takes to extract DNA from a plant sample, and our technique provides a fast, simple solution to that problem," Wei says."Some plant diseases have similar leaf symptoms, such as late blight caused by the famed Irish famine pathogen Phytophthora infestans, and Phytophthora blight caused by a sister species P. nicotianae," says Jean Ristaino, William Neal Reynolds Distinguished Professor of Plant Pathology at NC State and co-corresponding author of the paper."The gold standard for disease identification is a molecular assay.Our new technique is important because you can't run an amplification or genotyping assay on strains of P. infestans, or any other plant disease, until you've extracted DNA from the sample."
In Gothenburg, sweden, Volvo have built a new rig, in which his heads, is thrown into the varied speeds and angles.the company has constantly moved forward in the field of security, and was early to be focusing on the most vulnerable individuals around the other vehicle.as of 2010, the fotgängardetektering full autobroms.Two years later, it had the V40 model is the world's first airbag for pedestrians – covers the windshield and lift the hood of the car.also, Volvo developed the technology behind the level of pedestrian protection, and in 2013 launched the cykeldetektering full autobroms.the System uses the car's cameras and radars in order to detect the eyes.
Toyota teams with China’s CATL and BYD to power electric ambitions – Nikkei Asian ReviewWhat happened: In a move to diversify its supply of critical components, Toyota said on Friday that it will buy batteries from two Chinese battery manufacturers: Contemporary Amperex Technology (CATL) and BYD.The Japanese automaker said in the announcement that it is the first time it has sourced critical components from Chinese manufacturers.Toyota also expanded its supplier roster in Japan by making deals with Toshiba and GS Yuasa in addition to its long-term partnership with Panasonic.The company seeks to support its sales goal of at least 5.5 million electrified vehicles to comprise more than half of total sales by 2025, moving what had been a 2030 goal up five years.The company sold around 1.6 million electrified vehicles in 2018.
The partnership will focus on integrating Aurora’s technology into FCA’s line of Ram Truck commercial vehicles, a portfolio that includes cargo vans and trucks.For instance, once Aurora’s technology is integrated into its commercial vans, FCA could sell them to a third-party logistics company — like say, Amazon — that intends to use autonomous vehicles for deliveries.The high cost of developing and bringing technology such as electrification and autonomous vehicles to market has prompted automakers, including FCA, to seek out partnerships and alliances, sometimes even with competitors.In May, FCA proposed a 50-50 merger with French automaker Renault, arguing that it would create a more capital efficient enterprise that could develop global vehicle platforms, architectures, powertrains and technologies.FCA has since withdrawn its merger offer.However, more partnerships are likely to emerge.
What do the artists Andy Warhol, Tracy Emin, John Constable and J. M. W. Turner have in common aside from world renown and enviable success?Meller could see that in 2019, heading into the next decade, the one thing that would underpin almost every innovation and exciting development in the world was AI.With this in mind he decided to create a robot that could bring art forth into the world while facilitating a conversation about the potential of AI.Ai-Da has a humanoid head and neck, including a full head of long hair.The mechanics of her torso and limbs, meanwhile, are openly exposed (if sometimes partially clothed) -- all the way down to her fingers, which are capable of grasping a drawing implement.Using cameras in her eyes, she can identify what's in front of her and commit it to paper by hand, in her own unique staccato, impressionistic style.

Scientists have finally determined the first steps toward dislodging the Mars InSight lander’s frustratingly stuck heat probe.NASA successfully planted the InSight lander on Mars late last year, to much fanfare.One of the mission’s major goals was to bury a heat probe 10 to 15 feet below the Martian surface in order to study the planet’s interior, but after only a foot or so, the probe could hammer no farther; at first it seemed like a large rock was blocking the way, but now the team suspects that something about the soil itself is stopping the probe.It’s been stuck in place since February (there’s no way to pull it back up and try a new location, unfortunately).Scientists operating the InSight lander hope to study the geology of Mars, how its land moves and vibrates, and how heat flows beneath its surface.From the start, the InSight team knew that placing the Heat Flow and Physical Properties Package (HP3) probe would be a challenge.

An asteroid up to double the width of the bolide that exploded in the atmosphere over Russia in 2013 is making a close approach of our planet this September, and there's a teeny tiny chance it could make an even bigger impact.But it almost certainly won't.Asteroid 2006 QV89 currently has a one in 7,000 chance of hitting Earth on the morning of Sept. 9, according to the European Space Agency, which lists the space rock as the fourth most concerning object on its top 10 list of cosmic items with a non-zero chance of hitting us.Current modeling of the asteroid's orbit shows it more likely passing by Earth at a distance of over 4.2 million miles (6.8 million km) this September, but ESA says there's a roughly one hundredth of 1% chance the model is way off and it hits our planet instead.At a diameter of up to 164 feet (50 meters), it could be the sort of meteoroid impact we only see every few decades, and the NASA administrator recently noted that we're due for a few more of the sort this century.To better estimate the odds that 2006 QV89 could give us trouble, ESA has been remeasuring images of it from over a decade ago, but the new assessment has yet to change the chance of impact much.
