There are no secrets kept from an iPhone

WHAT IS IT?

WHY IMPORTANT

An invasion of privacy could lead to real problems. If the phone is tracking your whereabouts, who else may know about them?

WHAT IS IT?

While a vulnerability is a potential risk to an organization, it does not threaten an organization in and of itself. A vulnerability only becomes a problem when it is exploited.

WHY IMPORTANT

Identifying vulnerabilities before attackers exploit them is a much more cost-effective approach to vulnerability management. The sooner vulnerabilities are identified and remediated in the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), the lower the cost to the organization.

WHAT IS IT

Microsoft researchers have presented an impressive new text-to-speech AI model, called Vall-E, which can listen to a voice for just a few seconds, then mimic that voice – including the emotional tone and acoustics – to say whatever you like.

WHY IMPORTANT

While at some point, you'll be able to have Morgan Freeman narrate your shopping list as you ride a trolley down the supermarket aisle, or, if an actor dies halfway through a movie, they can finish their performance through deepfake video and audio using systems like this. But a more significant issue is the potential for scam artists is also sky-high. If a scammer can get you on the phone for three seconds, they can steal your voice and call your grandma with it. Or bypass any voice-recognition security devices. This is precisely the kind of thing Terminator robots will need to make phone calls.

What is it?

The number of science and technology research papers published has skyrocketed over the past few decades — but the ‘disruptiveness’ of those papers has dropped, according to an analysis of how radically papers depart from the previous literature. The proportion of publications that send a field in a new direction has plummeted over the past half-century.

WHY IMPORTANT

The data suggest something is changing. We don’t have quite the same intensity of breakthrough discoveries you once had.

WHAT IS IT?

Hyperautomation is a toolbox; it handles higher-level functions, commencing with coordination, intelligence, predictive insights, informed suggestions, and ending with decision-making.

Why important?

A company’s efficiency debt is comparable to its technical debt. It is the accumulation of actions that an organization should have taken to achieve operational effectiveness. With hyperautomation, enterprises may coordinate and automate operations more efficiently and establish an ecosystem that tackles and eliminates efficiency debt.

WHAT IS IT?

Apple makes it easy to save and share voicemails.

WHY IMPORTANT
Life is short, and there’s more than ever to think about when it comes to the end of life. If you’ve lost someone, you know how comforting pictures and videos can be. Being able to read old text conversations is unique, too. Your smartphone’s voicemail might be another place to hear words from a loved one. Don’t bet on your phone to save it for you indefinitely. Here’s how to keep a copy for good.
