Safety is undoubtedly the most important concern for the auto industry the world over. That is one of the reasons there is such a focus on investing in autonomous vehicles. Autonomous vehicles eliminate human errors and limitations—slow reaction speed, blind spots, inattention—which are the primary reason for most accidents.
The S of IoT networks
The assumption about big data analytics is that if you capture more data and analyze, the more accurate your results will be. But it doesn’t matter how big your data volume is and how optimized and efficient your analytics algorithms are, if the analyzed data is inaccurate from the sources, then it will surely result into inaccurate analytics.
Software Containers like Docker, Kubernetes and Mesos have transformed the Cloud application development scene. Containers are amongst the most talked about technologies on social media channels, online publications and conferences. Most of the big names in web/cloud space like Google, Amazon, Microsoft, IBM, etc. have jumped on this bandwagon.
Smarter, cheaper and always-on devices keep us connected. This includes everything from tiny, low-power sensors to video cameras, actuators and industrial machinery. The sensors and microchips that define Internet of Things (IoT) capture, monitor and share myriad types of data. As the numbers of these smart sensors increase, the amount of information they produce explodes.
An eventful week
There has been a lot of security news in the couple of weeks between the RSA Conference in San Francisco and Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. First, Google Security revealed a practical approach for generating collisions for the hashing algorithm SHA-1. While long considered vulnerable, SHA-1 has now been rendered all but useless. Second, security vulnerabilities reportedly cost Super Micro Computer to lose Apple as a client, leading to an 8% drop in the company’s market value. And third, the disclosure of a bug in CloudFlare’s services rendered consumers of web-based services from Uber, OkCupid and other companies potentially vulnerable.
