us, uk say russia targets internet hardware for espionage

Washington and London jointly accused the Russian government of maliciously targeting global internet equipment for political and economic espionage.The two governments said the Russian operations, which allegedly involve planting malware on internet routers and other equipment, could also lay the foundation for future offensive cyberattacks.A joint statement by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the FBI and the U.K.’s National Cyber Security Centre said the main targets include“government and private-sector organizations,”as well as providers of“critical infrastructure”and internet service providers.“Victims were identified through a coordinated series of actions between U.S. and international partners,”according to a companion technical alert issued by the U.S. Computer Emergency Response Team (US-CERT). Both nations have “high confidence”in the finding of Russian-sponsored cyber-meddling, which the alert said has been reported by multiple sources since 2015. Routers…

web’s inventor discusses digital monopolies, privacy threats

Tim Berners-Lee gave away the technology that he used to invent the World Wide Web, so it’s not surprising that he’s worried about the current state of the internet as Google, Facebook and Amazon become increasingly dominant in the digital world.When the web turned 29 years old in March, Berners-Lee shared some of his concerns in an annual letter that he writes as a director for the World Wide Web Foundation, an organization he founded to ensure the internet remains accessible to everyone. He expanded on why we should be worried about digital monopolies in an interview. The interview was conducted a few weeks before Facebook’s current privacy scandal, one triggered by revelations that its social networking service allowed a political data-mining firm to gain access to the information…

bovines online: farmers are using ai to help monitor cows

Is the world ready for cows armed with artificial intelligence?No time to ruminate on that because the moment has arrived, thanks to a Dutch company that has married two technologies — motion sensors and AI — with the aim of bringing the barnyard into the 21st century.The company, Connecterra, has brought its IDA system, or “The Intelligent Dairy Farmer’s Assistant,” to the United States after having piloted it in Europe for several years. IDA uses a motion-sensing device attached to a cow’s neck to transmit its movements to a program driven by AI. The sensor data, when aligned repeatedly with real-world behavior, eventually allows IDA to tell from data alone when a cow is chewing cud, lying down, walking, drinking or eating.Those indicators can predict whether a particular cow…

army shows off next-level tech at fort leonard wood

The U.S. Army is training troops to use 3D printers to build concrete barracks, or to use drones to gather intelligence in contaminated spots that might be dangerous for soldiers.Or, scanner technology currently used by the law enforcement agencies to document crime scenes in 3D could someday be used on the battlefield to make maps with previously unthinkable levels of detail.Some of that technology is being tested at Fort Leonard Wood, which showed off the machines to journalists this week. It’s part of a program the Army calls the Maneuver Support, Sustainment, Protection, Integration Experiment. The goal is to allow service members who might use the devices during deployments to test them and have input before the technology is declared field-ready, The Springfield News-Leader reported.The strategy makes the military…

watch your health improved

When the Apple Watch Series 3 was releasedback in September of last year , there’s no doubt that the company had one thing in mind: to make it the best fitness tracker on the market.

exhibit focuses on homes that adapt and change with us

Most housing is designed for nuclear families, but most U.S. households don’t meet that description.That’s why flexible floor plans — and innovations including moveable walls, smart technology, multifunctional furniture and space-saving features — are the future, according to a new exhibit, “Making Room: Housing for a Changing America,” at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.The museum’s curator, Chrysanthe Broikos, says only about 20 percent of households today are nuclear families, so housing and zoning rules need to adapt to keep pace with demographic changes. In addition to interiors, the exhibit highlights a number of studies on housing, and information about what’s going on around the country in new development and zoning. “We’re trying to say ’Hey, what are the other 80 percent of households doing?” Broikos says.The exhibit…
