Gevers blames weak FR database security on a competitive marketplace, where a proof of concept is built and the product quickly marketed and sold. And though a government or company may learn from vulnerabilities, as time passes and people get promoted or leave their job, Gevers says the tendency is for organizations to forget what they learned about systems security. Which is why he would like to see cloud providers like AWS, Google, and Azure provide programmers with templates, such as are available from the Open Web Application Security Project, so that they can build safely and securely on those platforms. … [Read more...] about Due to weak oversight, we don’t really know how tech companies are using facial recognition data

But their advantage won’t last long. … [Read more...] about Low Fares And Snack Fees—How No-Frills Favorite Norwegian Air Went Global
Now, whether this ends up being a good or bad thing–whether we’re talking about urban slums or smartly scaled communities, loosely populated expanses of efficient agriculture, or underdeveloped countrysides stricken by poverty–none of that is written on this map because none of that is written just yet. But it’s hard to watch these bubbles grow, expanding into one another in a battle for your mere vision (let alone food, housing, and wages) and earnestly expect that everything is just going to be all right. … [Read more...] about By 2050, 70% Of The World’s Population Will Be Urban.
