  2. Cloudflare’s new open-source project helps anyone obtain truly random numbers Randomness sits at the heart of everything we do online. Many encryption algorithms depend upon randomly generated numbers to work, and that’s just one example of many. But how random is random? It’s a fair question. History has been shown that tools designed to generate random numbers — both physical and virtual — can be prone to failure. In this sense, failure means producing numbers that can be guessed or otherwise influenced in order to produce a certain outcome. Addressing this problem is Cloudflare, the Internet titan best known for its DDoS protection software. It’s teamed up with five other… This story continues at The Next Web

  3. Google Play hosted phishing apps impersonating Turkish cryptocurrency exchange Malicious apps impersonating Turkish cryptocurrency exchange BtcTurk are circumventing Google’s recently adopted security enhancing measures. According to researchers, the apps are accessing one-time passwords (OTPs) and SMS-based two-factor authentication (2FA), was well as some email-based 2FA systems. By impersonating the cryptocurrency exchange, the apps are able to phish for users’ login credentials. Instead of intercepting SMS messages to bypass 2FA protection on users’ accounts and activity, the malicious apps take the OTP from notifications appearing on the comprised device’s display. Worryingly, besides being able to read the 2FA notifications, the apps are also to dismiss them, meaning victims are unable to notice… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Google Play,Google

  5. 4 mistakes companies make when expanding overseas You no longer need to be a Fortune 500 company to take your business global. A small startup can market and sell to customers on the other side of the world without ever leaving their zip code. Today, over half of small businesses in the United States have international customers. Not surprisingly, more and more businesses are thinking about expanding globally — and they’re thinking about it earlier than they would have a decade ago. The challenge is, there’s no handbook for opening an office in a new region. Expanding your team, product, and operations internationally is uncharted territory for… This story continues at The Next Web

  10. MIT’s new AI for robots can ‘feel’ an object just by seeing it Researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have developed a brand new AI that can feel objects just by seeing them – and vice versa.  The new AI can predict how it would feel to touch an object, just by looking at it. It can also create a visual representation of an object, just from the tactile data it generates by touching it. Yunzhu Li, CSAIL PhD student and lead author on the paper about the system, said the model can help robots handle real-world objects better:  By looking at the scene, our model can imagine the… This story continues at The Next Web

  11. The ethics of deepfakes aren’t always black and white Chances are if you’ve seen a deepfake, such as this now infamous video of Obama ‘speaking’ Comedian Jordan Peele’s words, it has left an uncomfortable feeling. Since deepfakes emerged in December 2017, most media coverage has focused on their potentially catastrophic applications. These range from deepfake pornography, ransomfakes, smear campaigns against politicians, and a new age of fake news that could worsen the global ‘post-truth’ crisis. While these malicious uses of deepfakes and synthetic media are rightly a cause for concern, there are also positive uses of the same generative AI technologies. For example, Lyrebird, a Canadian startup, has partnered… This story continues at The Next Web

  14. Personal robots won’t catch on until they become more than a novelty Last month, another well-funded social robot startup, Anki, closed its doors for good. And it wasn’t the first. In March, Jibo, which had received $73 million in funding, announced that it was shutting down its servers. Over the past few years, we’ve seen several much-hyped robots take the stage, promising a friendly at-home companion to do, well, just about anything you’d imagine a home robot to do. Your friend, your photographer, your jukebox, your toy. For both Anki and Jibo, two of the main players in the companion robot space, the public reception was quite positive. Media and investors alike… This story continues at The Next Web
