Because eleven months later, the model was still sitting on a shelf. That gap between great AI prototypes and AI in operation is starting to be a common theme as AI and machine learning make contact with the real world.

Anyone can shoot a short and put it up online, and the competition from amateurs and free content is brisk enough to make any professional think twice about making a short for any reason except inspiration or fun. But for first-time filmmakers proving their talents, a well-received short film can open some doors and make funding for a feature easier to find.

The Web of Profit: A look at the cybercrime economy

Last April, I started a conversation with cybersecurity company Bromium. The company was keen to uncover where the streams of revenue generated by cybercrime eventually go and whether this money is ultimately supporting other areas of crime. Over the past 10 months, I have been examining this question, and I must say there have been some eyebrow-raising findings. While there has been a lot of research into areas such as the “cost” and the mechanisms of cybercrime, there is far less awareness and understanding of how cybercrime functions as an integrated set of criminal practices. As a result, the tech community tends to focus on technical factors, such as malware types, security holes, and how to prevent certain types of attac... Read More

You know two-factor authentication tokens, the ephemeral, six-digit numbers you use as a second layer of security when logging into, say, your email? Those constantly updating, randomly generated numbers are one of the easiest ways to protect your accounts from being hacked. But for some time now, I've harbored a pet conspiracy theory about those codes: Maybe they aren't as random as we're led to believe. It began with an observation: My codes often seem to include elements that make them easier to remember.
