Is A.I. Ready For The Big Time

AI is set to be a massive disappointment for those who think it is going to take over the world. While there have been remarkable advances in AI, after decades of frustration there are too many things that people can do quickly that smart machines cannot. For example, natural language is beyond deep learning, sure AI machine translators are great tools, but they are leagues behind a competent human translator and will remain that way for decades. AI can’t handle new situations. Senior partner at...

Can Any Version Of Windows Get Hacked

Remember those leaked NSA tools?  Well, they can now hack any version of Windows, not just the old version of Microsoft’s operating system. Researcher Sean Dillon from cybersecurity firm RiskSense tweaked the source code of three nicked NSA exploits – EternalSynergy, EternalChampion and EternalRomance – to work against Windows versions dating back as far as Windows 2000. Going by the name of ‘zerosum0x0’ on GitHub and Twitter (hat tip to Betanews for that), Dillon noted...

Rosen Law Firm is a global investor rights firm, where a class action lawsuit has been kicked off on “behalf of purchasers of the securities of Advanced Micro Devices”. The lawsuit details: “Defendants during the Class Period made...

Ryzen Appears To Be Working For AMD

Long-standing Intel competitor, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), appears from its first quarter results to be gnawing at Chipzilla’s ankles. The Sunnyvale firm seems to be worrying investors in Intel (INTC) by showing better technology than the Santa Clara firm seems to offer. We won’t know for a little while what the takeup from vendors is likely to be, but early indications – which Fudzilla has reported for quite a while  are that major vendors – like Dell and HP for example –...

Raspberry Pi Team With Darktrace

Raspberry Pi has got pretty serious about protecting its intellectual property and has tasked artificial intelligence (AI) security firm Darktrace to keep hackers at bay. You wouldn’t expect cybercriminals to go after Raspberry Pi given its friendly nature of supporting the teaching of coding to kids and providing kits to nerds with a hard-on for building all manner of computerized contraptions. But clearly, the UK company is feeling a little paranoid. And we guess it has a right to, as the...

Intel To Offer More Coffee Lake-S Processors

As Intel is expected to reveal the rest of its Coffee Lake-S lineup sometime next month, it comes as no surprise that some of those SKUs have already leaked online. Since Intel has delayed its entry-level B360/H370 and H310 chipset, these entry-level CPUs have been delayed as well but according to a listing from Australian e-tailer, spotted by Videocardz.com, suggests that this should change soon as Intel will unveil a couple of new SKUs, including two Celerons, three Pentiums, one Core i3 and two...
