This 'temporary tattoo' could totally change #healthcare & #wearables | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
Scientists developed a stretchable electronic sensor that looks like a temporary tattoo.
Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Digital transformation often starts with innovative new technologies. This technologies has been in development for many years and thus we should keep them on our radars for when they spring out of the lab as commercial products. Not just yet though but keep that in mind when strategic plans are being drawn...

AI Creates Fake Obama via @gnat @ieee

AI Creates Fake Obama via @gnat @ieee | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
In the new study, the neural net learned what mouth shapes were linked to various sounds. The researchers took audio clips and dubbed them over the original sound files of a video. They next took mouth shapes that matched the new audio clips and grafted and blended them onto the video. Essentially, the researchers synthesized videos where Obama lip-synched words he said up to decades beforehand.
Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Fake news is difficult to debunk because we are trained to believe what we read has been vetted and checked for validity. Images and videos are even worse because, until now, it was difficult to alter them in any meaningful way. Technologies like this may change that forever. Watch out for elections 202 in the USA.

API-Security-Checklist - A checklist of the most important security countermeasures when designing, testing, and releasing your API.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

github is a software engineering tool for software version control that has been leveraged for large open source projects. It has also been used to co-edit documents with a high level of version control and large population of authors. I wanted to share this - along with previous posts on software engineering blogs and 2 factor authentication support - as a great example of how digital can help transform the way people work. Unfortunately I find that organizations have yet to become aware of this great tool, maybe because it is a little bit too geeky for non technical employees.

Lighthouse is a new #essentials in every #web #developer #toolkit

Lighthouse is a new #essentials in every #web #developer #toolkit | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

Lighthouse is an open-source, automated tool for improving the quality of web pages. You can run it against any web page, public or requiring authentication. It has audits for performance, accessibility, progressive web apps, and more.

You can run Lighthouse as a Chrome Extension, from the command line, or as a Node module. You give Lighthouse a URL to audit, it runs a series of audits against the page, and then it generates a report on how well the page did. From there, use the failing audits as indicators on how to improve the page. Each audit has a reference doc explaining why the audit is important, as well as how to fix it.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Digital transformation occurs via the web, more often than not. Google has been giving the web developer community amazing tools, from the pagespeed solutions to the chrome browser developer tools.

Lumen Privacy Monitor, a mobile app that shows which apps violate your #privacy | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

Your mobile phone hosts a rich array of information about you and your behavior. This includes a wide range of unique identifiers and sensitive personal information that enables online tracking, often times for delivering targeted advertisement. It is, however, striking how little insight and control we, as mobile users have into the operation and performance of our devices, into how (or whether) they protect information we entrust to them, and who they share it with. Further, it is not just regular users that are in the dark; much of the operation of mobile devices remains mysterious even to experts.

Facebook's AI accidentally created its own language & learned to negotiate in #chatbots | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

Researchers from the Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research lab (FAIR) recently made an unexpected discovery while trying to improve chatbots.

Using machine learning algorithms, dialog agents were left to converse freely in an attempt to strengthen their conversational skills.

An unexpected downside of sharing data from apps like Strava or Map My Ride. I've used these apps for walking but I don't think anyone would want to steal my shoes.
Many of my friends who ride bikes like to share rides with each other, boast about their times and today from a commuter perspective, it isn't a bad idea to share routes from the perspective of how to get to work more quickly. 
The problem is that thieves are getting smarter as well and where people are sharing their routes publicly as opposed to just with friends, it appears that they are advising bike thieves where to find their bikes at the destination of their commute.
A couple of thoughts for those of you who are cycling:
1. Don't share your location or ride data with people you don't know and trust.
2. Watch out for a new solution at Kickstarter called Magpie http://kck.st/2rVQXpN and if you invest in the next 8 days you can get 3 tracking devices for $145 to be delivered early in the new year, that are small, self contained and include a year's tracking. Stash one of those babies on your back and if it does get stolen, you get your bike back and a crook get's caught. It's waterproof and has a SIM card built in so doesn't require that you have people with a Bluetooth app installed and nearby. I've got 3 on order and I don't even own a bike!

The Road Ahead: 6 Trends Shaping The Future of Auto Tech

The Road Ahead: 6 Trends Shaping The Future of Auto Tech | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

Interest in auto tech has risen dramatically in recent years. Technology has always been a staple of automotive research and development, but the past few years have seen a technology arms race as advances in IoT and artificial intelligence disciplines filter down to the automotive sector. Startup investment has risen dramatically as concepts once reserved for science fiction (like autonomous vehicles) move towards commercialization.

We analyzed the explosion of activity in the auto tech space using the CB Insights platform in our full webinar.

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Automobile tech combines so many of the high tech solutions and technologies - from AI to new batteries - that it makes for a great case study to understand how much transportation will change in the coming years. And with it, the possibility of business transformation from eCommerce delivery to supply chain improvements to employee getting to work with little stress and no traffic jams.

How one man managed to Accidentally Stop a Global Cyber Attack and how he did it #wannaCrypt #malware

How one man managed to Accidentally Stop a Global Cyber Attack and how he did it #wannaCrypt #malware | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
I believe they were trying to query an intentionally unregistered domain which would appear registered in certain sandbox environments, then once they see the domain responding, they know they’re in a sandbox the malware exits to prevent further analysis. This technique isn’t unprecedented and is actually used by the Necurs trojan (they will query 5 totally random domains and if they all return the same IP, it will exit); however, because WannaCrypt used a single hardcoded domain, my registration of it caused all infections globally to believe they were inside a sandbox and exit…thus we initially unintentionally prevented the spread and and further ransoming of computers infected with this malware. Of course now that we are aware of this, we will continue to host the domain to prevent any further infections from this sample.

Bacteria open vents in this shirt when you sweat- smart fabrics are almost here | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

Engineers at MIT have designed a workout suit that responds to your body heat, according to a study published last week in Science Advances. The clothing, made from latex, is covered with thumbnail- to finger-sized ventilating flaps that open and close depending on how much heat your body puts out. But what's controlling the flaps isn't something you'll find weaved into your usual workout gear -- it's bacteria.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

A good digital strategy should now include smart fabrics and garments as they will become part of the trade in years to come.
