UMBC’s Cybersecurity Graduate Program Director, Richard Forno, recently wrote an article in The Conversation about a new cyberspace target in weaponized information. In this week’s Industry Roundup, we delve into the idea of how tools can be used to target people’s perceptions and thought processes.
We also take a peek into AI and sleep, healthy ways to travel, data science and the digital economy, and quantum teleportation.
Industry Roundup is brought to you by UMBC’s Division of Professional Studies, offering a broad array of professionally-focused master’s degree and certificate programs that address industry needs while anticipating future opportunities.
User’s Minds: A New Cyberspace Target
UMBC’s Cybersecurity Graduate Program Director, Richard Forno, wrote an article in The Conversation about a new cyberspace target in weaponized information. He speaks about how this new dimension in cyberspace could be used to target people’s perceptions and thought processes and the inherent dangers in that.
AI to the Sleep Rescue
We’re a sleep deprived society. That’s not news. But you know what is? AI and Machine Learning are helping scientists analyze sleep patterns of individuals in their own environment for longer periods of time. Sleep labs may become a thing of the past.
A Healthier Way to Travel
Airline travel is statistically safer than automobile travel. But do we put ourselves at risk for sickness by closing ourselves into this big hunk of metal? An aviation doctor offers his argument on this and advises on how to stay healthy when flying the friendly skies.
Data Science and the Digital Economy
This planet is chocked full of information and where does it all go? How is it stored? How can it be made more useful? Well, these are exactly the kinds of questions data-driven companies investigate and what makes them the big winners in the digital economy.
Is Quantum Teleportation a Real Thing?
For all you sci-fi fans out there, you’re going to love this. Did you know that scientists at University of Science and Technology, located in Shanghai, achieved quantum teleportation at a record distance by sending entangled photons from Tibet to the Micius satellite in orbit 870 miles above the Earth? According to Space.com, it happened.
