We need to establish principles that guarantee the right of people to their own thoughts and protect them from interference.
Neurotechnology is a promising area that attracts the attention of both the public and investors. Used properly, neurotechnology can be of immense value, such as helping to understand and treat Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, limb prosthetics, speech therapy, and more.However, if not properly regulated, neurotechnology can lead to abuse by corporations and governments. including discrimination and interference with privacy, experts warn.
In their opinion, it is necessary to establish principles that guarantee the right of people to their own thoughts and protect them from any interference. Their fears are not unfounded, given the interest shown by the military, governments and tech companies in such technologies.
For example, the United States and China are actively conducting research in the field of artificial intelligence, large technology companies such as Facebook and Neuralink are also engaged in developments in this area. Specifically, Facebook sponsored project to create a neural interface that allows users to communicate without words, and Neuralink managed to implant a chip in a monkey that allowed it to play video games.
In the current state, neurotechnology cannot decode thoughts and emotions, but with artificial intelligence, this may not be necessary, since powerful machine learning systems are able to correlate correlations between brain signals and external factors.
Brain scans are already being used in the criminal justice system to diagnose and predict which criminals are prone to re-crime, but at this stage, these technologies provide limited and sometimes inaccurate information. This, in turn, can lead to discrimination, experts say.
Neurotechnology is any technology that has a fundamental impact on how people understand the brain and various aspects of consciousness, mental activity, and higher mental functions.
Possibly hundreds of millions of smartphones are at risk. A vulnerability has been discovered that manufacturers are in no hurry to fix
Google, as part of its Project Zero project, has published information about a new vulnerability CVE-2022-33917 that affects millions of smartphones.
The fact is that we are talking about a vulnerability in Mali GPUs, which are used in a huge number of single-chip systems. Google does not specify, but the Arm website has information that the vulnerability affects solutions based on the Valhall architecture. And this means that we are talking about a huge number of graphics cores that have been and are being used in SoCs in recent years, including the latest Mali-Gx10. That is, we are not talking about millions of vulnerable smartphones, but rather hundreds of millions of devices based on SoC MediaTek, Exynos and Tensor.
Arm itself patched the vulnerability some time ago, but the problem is that many vendors still haven’t implemented those patches. This applies to many devices from Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo and even Google itself.
If exploited, the vulnerability is intended to allow an attacker to read and write physical pages after they are returned to the system, potentially gaining wide access to user data.
Elon Musk invited a famous hacker of iPhone and PlayStation consoles to Twitter
Elon Musk hired a hacker who created the world’s first iPhone jailbreak in 2007 and bypassed Sony consoles in 2010. We are talking about George Hotz (George Hotz), known under the nickname Geohot. He also founded the startup Comma.ai, where an autopilot system for cars is being developed.
In 2015, Hotz began building his own autopilot and offered Musk a license. Instead, the businessman invited a specialist to Tesla, but Hotz refused.
A November 16 Hotz wrote on Twitter, which supports Musk’s decisions about the “hardcore mode of operation.” He also stated that he was ready for an internship at Twitter with a minimum pay that is equal to the cost of living in San Francisco. Musk answered and invited the developer to Twitter.
First, the specialist will improve the advanced search in the social network so that users no longer set filters manually.
Earlier it was reported that Musk took up the “fire servers.”
Hackers hacked one of Nvidia’s Twitter accounts to “advertise” Dogecoin
The official Nvidia Taiwan Twitter account has been hacked.
This account has been inactive since 2019, but today unexpectedly posted posts related to the Dogecoin cryptocurrency. Given the recent purchase of Twitter by Elon Musk and his love for this cryptocurrency, the situation looks quite funny.
Be that as it may, the attackers published a record about a certain Dogeathon 2022 event and added a link to the record. Of course, the link was used for phishing.
The account is currently suspended. Nvidia itself has not yet commented on the situation.
