While the Metaverse may offer certain people a vast array of options for business expansion and development, for others, the concept is still relatively novel. Businesses should in some manner use this new development as justification for making sure best practices are being applied to their processes and doing right.
Another record has been broken on the way to fully operational and capable quantum computers: the complete control of a 6-qubit quantum processor in silicon.
Researchers are calling it “a major stepping stone” for the technology.
Qubits (or quantum bits) are the quantum equivalents of classical computing bits, only they can potentially process much more information. Thanks to quantum physics, they can be in two states at once, rather than just a single 1 or 0.
What is the biggest challenge to health this century? And will digital health make it better or worse?
The answer to the first question is that the greatest threat to health in the 21st century is climate change – or more accurately, the climate and ecological crisis – according to the WHO. There is scientific consensus that unprecedented climate change is happening, that it is caused by human actions, and that it will have a major impact on human health – the environmental determinants of health.
The Metaverse and virtual reality (VR) are related, but it’s difficult to compare them in a direct way. The Metaverse is a hypothetical platform currently in development, while virtual reality is a technology you can already use today. It’s likely you’ll be able to interact with the Metaverse through virtual reality when it arrives, but the Metaverse is expected to extend far beyond the single technology of virtual reality.
The metaverse is at the top of the list of innovative technology ideas that have emerged during the past year. The idea quickly attracted both fans and detractors since it raised more questions than it did answers. It’s time to determine what the metaverse is if you haven’t already joined one of the sides: is it a more evolved form of virtual reality or something else different? Without VR/AR technology, is it even possible? How does this work in your favor? Let’s proceed gradually.
March 2021 will forever be remembered as the month that NFTs went kaboom, bursting into the mainstream when Beeple’s Everydays: the First 5000 Days sold to crypto entrepreneur Metakovan for $69.3 million. Suddenly, the art world was noticing and, overnight, NFTs became the mostly hotly debated subject of the year.
Around 40% of ethical hackers recently surveyed by the SANS Institute said they can break into most environments they test, if not all. Nearly 60% said they need five hours or less to break into a corporate environment once they identify a weakness.
Oracle describes IoT as a “network of physical objects — ‘things’ — that are embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies for the purpose of connecting and exchanging data with other devices and systems over the internet.” These “things” run the gamut from smart TVs and doorbells to motion-sensitive security cameras and temperature sensors for office HVAC systems.
Spectro Cloud, the Bay Area-based modern infrastructure startup, announced a new platform that promises simplified onboarding and management of edge computing devices running Kubernetes.
In March, I covered Spectro Cloud’s Palette Edge – a platform to extend the power of managed Kubernetes to the edge. Last week’s announcement enhanced Palette Edge through a new workflow to onboard edge devices, an open source OS optimized for the edge, and a NOC-style portal to visualize and manage edge clusters running Kubernetes.
Minimizing the use of sedatives during operations could shorten hospital stays and reduce the risk of complications.
Immersing patients in virtual reality could help reduce the amount of local anesthetic needed for surgery, a new study has found.
A team of researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston split 34 patients undergoing elective hand surgery into two equal-size groups. One group was given a VR headset and offered a range of relaxing immersive programs to view during surgery, while the other went without. The VR programs included 360-degree views of a peaceful meadow, mountaintop, or forest; guided meditation; or videos played against the backdrop of a starry sky.
Crypto law commentator Brian Fyre interprets the draft bill as treating blue-chip NFT PFP collections like Bored Apes as securities.
The European Union’s landmark and now-finalized Markets in Crypto Assets (MiCA) draft legislation asserts that NFTs sold as components of large collections possess little to no distinctively unique qualities or utility, and, therefore, would be subject to the same regulatory scrutiny as cryptocurrencies, according to a leaked draft of the legislation obtained by Decrypt.
Vogue Singapore and other fashion platforms are creating Web3 communities for users, but will the concept catch on?
A recent report from technology research and advisory firm Technavio predicts that the metaverse will have hit a market share value of $50.37 billion by the year 2026. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the trillion-dollar fashion industry has started taking a major interest in the metaverse.
A few years ago, cybersecurity outsourcing was perceived as something inorganic and often restrained. Today, cybersecurity outsourcing is still a rare phenomenon. Instead, many companies prefer to take care of security issues themselves.
Almost everyone has heard about cybersecurity outsourcing, but the detailed content of this principle is still interpreted very differently in many companies.
In this article, I want to answer the following important questions: Are there any risks in cybersecurity outsourcing? Who is the service for? Under what conditions is it beneficial to outsource security? Finally, what is the difference between MSSP and SecaaS models?
As software-related vulnerabilities continue to grow, companies must manage their software cyber risks to innovate faster and create safer, more secure digital products.
Until recently, most companies were unaware of the “ingredients” or code that make up the software that powers their products and enterprise software. This is an issue because third-party code usage is increasing, and the consumption of open-source software (OSS) will accelerate in the years to come.
Endless Opportunities, Growth, Benefits, and Career: Artificial Intelligence in 2022.
Will there be artificial intelligence in the future? According to Statista, $93.5 billion was invested globally in artificial intelligence in just 2021. AI becomes feasible in the future thanks to billions of dollars and quick technological advancements. Depending on whose expert you talk to, superintelligence may or may not exist.
