WHAT IS IT?

A team of chemical engineers at MIT have created a new material that they claim to be stronger than steel — but still as light as plastic.

If the science holds up, it could be a huge advancement in material sciences, potentially giving objects like car parts or cell phones an extraordinarily durable skin. The team is even going as far as to say that it can be easily mass produced.

WHY IMPORTANT

The result is an extremely strong and thin material dubbed 2DPA-1 that is between four and six times more resistant to deformation as bulletproof glass. It is also twice as difficult to break than steel, despite having only one-sixth of the density.

The intent of the office is to set up a strong foundation for data analytic and AI-enabled capabilities to develop and field at scale, the official said. 

 "This foundation includes the necessary people, platforms and processes needed to continuously provide business leaders and warfighters with agile solutions, so the CDAO will serve as a department senior official responsible for strengthening the integration of data analytics and digital solutions, as well as AI functions across the department," the official explained. 

 

WHY IMPORTANT

"The principal purpose for creating the CDAO is to elevate the importance of the issue sent to the secretary of defense, deputy secretary and other principals … while also ensuring unity of mission and strategic alignment in the department's enterprise level, data analytics, digital solutions and AI efforts."

In 2022, consumers will be affected more than ever before by cyber threats. Accordingly, we need to make sure that cybersecurity does not neglect the consumer.

WHY IMPORTANT

Many cybercriminals are leveraging what they’ve learned from attacking enterprises and are starting to employ those skills to attack the consumer. There’s a certain “playbook” that is used to transfer these skills, and most consumers are completely unaware that they are likely to be a target. In order to protect consumers, there needs to be further education and awareness surrounding advanced threats that hacking groups such as REvil and DarkSide utilize.

The tremendous potential for AI to have a transformative impact in oncology, helping make clinical cancer care more effective, efficient, and patient centric.

WHY IMPORTANT
You hold an uninterrupted, computer screen–free discussion with your patient about their newly diagnosed pancreatic cancer; meanwhile, an AI-powered device processes the conversation and produces all documentation and billing information.

Only a few years ago, these imagined scenarios may have seemed far-fetched, but no longer. Increasingly, and with exponential pace, AI algorithms are finding their way into the oncology clinic. Here, I will review some of the promising ways in which these AI algorithms are poised to improve clinical cancer care for providers and patients.

The World Economic Forum's Global Cybersecurity Outlook 2022 presents critical findings from 120 global cyber leaders on how to shift from cybersecurity to cyber resilience.


WHY IMPORTANT
The COVID-19 pandemic has expedited the use of digital tools in business and the home. These advances in digitalization have led to increasingly frequent, costly and damaging cyber incidents.

The World Bank estimates that, by 2022, annual total internet traffic will increase by about 50% from 2020 levels, reaching 4.8 zettabytes. If you were to store 4.8 zettabytes on DVDs, your stack of DVDs would be long enough to circle the Earth six times.

Gen Z, defined as those born between 1997 and 2012, and span elementary school and college students- the oldest of which are just now entering the workplace

WHY IMPORTANT

Gen Z’s HAVE THE innate ability to adapt to new technologies. Gen Z also distinctly brings a whole new skill set to the workplace, having grown up in a world where internet access and smartphones were a normal part of life. Being technologically savvy means they are consistently connected with one another in a digital world but are less inclined to feel that face-to-face interactions are as critical as prior generations
