Researchers from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and Aalto University have found vulnerabilities in a recently proposed user-verification security system for computers.
if you're a small business owner and think you're too small to be a target of cyber crime, consider Verizon's Data Breach Investigations Study of 2012, where out of the 855 cases they examined, 71 percent of data breach cases were found in small businesses with less than 100 employees. We give some easy tips to small business owners to strengthen their cyber security.
A new, untraceable text-messaging system has been designed to thwart even the most powerful of adversaries. The system provides a strong mathematical guarantee of user anonymity, while, according to experimental results, permitting the exchange of text messages once a minute or so.
Humans can categorize data using less than 1 percent of the original information, and validated an algorithm to explain human learning -- a method that also can be used for machine learning, data analysis and computer vision -- researchers report.
Anybody with a smartphone knows the problem of snapping too many photos, with an itchy shutter finger quickly leading to hundreds of images that need to be sorted and culled.
But new software from researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) could help photographers curate and keep only the best images, thanks to an algorithm that can detect how memorable or forgettable they are almost as accurately as a human can.
