Climate change is the biggest and toughest global problem humanity faces today. Global warming requires innovation from the brightest and the best. Our scientists have turned to artificial intelligence (AI) for the best possible solutions because it is easy to proactively predict and build models immediately. Top leaders like Google, IBM, and Intel have launched many pilot projects that read, analyze and suggest the right solutions to save our planet from global warming.

Finally. On October 9th, IBM announced that it will split itself up by breaking up the company into two pieces, spinning off its legacy IT services businesses to focus on cloud. IBM shares rose about 6% on the news the first day, thought they have pulled back to be close to where they were when the deal was announced.
The change is sorely needed — IBM CEO Arvind Krishna is wise to pursue the strategy as the company needs some sort of catalyst to drive growth in the era of the cloud explosion. This deal should put IBM in a better position to compete with other cloud titans such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google, and Microsoft Azure by putting more focus on its prized Red Hat unit. It should also enable IBM to compete more strongly against other large tech conglomerates pursuing cloud, such as Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)
Networking equipment provider Nokia announced that it has signed a multiyear agreement to use Google as its cloud infrastructure provider. Nokia said it will migrate its global data centers and servers, as well as various software applications, onto Google Cloud infrastructure over an 18- to 24-month period.

Also: 5G could generate trillions in benefits in the next decade. So why aren’t companies moving faster with it?
Under the deal, Nokia will use a suite of Google Cloud products and services, with its infrastructure and applications running in the public cloud or via SaaS model. The companies have also worked out a customized migration schedule that will allow Nokia to exit its

An investigation into this summer’s Twitter hack by the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYSDFS) has ended with a stinging rebuke for how easily Twitter let itself be duped by a “simple” social engineering technique — and with a wider call for key social media platforms to be regulated on security.
In the report, the NYSDFS points, by way of contrasting example, to how quickly regulated cryptocurrency companies acted to prevent the Twitter hackers scamming even more people — arguing this demonstrates that tech innovation and regulation aren’t mutually exclusive.
Its point is that the biggest social media platforms have huge societal power (with all the associated consumer risk) but no regulated responsibilities to protect users.
The report concludes this is a problem U.S. lawmakers need to get on and tackle stat — recommending that an oversight council be established (to “designate systemically important social media companies”) and
The news: Global internet freedom has declined for the 10th year in a row as governments use the coronavirus pandemic as cover to restrict people’s rights, according to a report by think tank Freedom House. Its researchers assessed 65 countries, accounting for 87% of internet users worldwide. The report covers the period from June 2019 to May 2020, but some key changes took place when the pandemic struck.
The pandemic effect: In at least 20 countries, the pandemic was cited as a reason to introduce sweeping new restrictions on speech and arrest online critics. In 28, governments blocked websites or forced outlets, users, or platforms to censor information in order to suppress critical reporting, unfavorable health statistics or other content related to the coronavirus. In at least 45 of the countries studied, people were arrested as a result of their online posts about covid-19.

Organizations are now more than ever dependent on employees connecting from uncontrolled home and public networks to do their jobs. Unfortunately, these networks are “dirty” and risky to connect to. VPNs only protect data in transit between users and corporate networks; they do nothing to prevent the spread of malware or the other risks associated with connecting to these networks. In fact, Byos has identified the “Dirty Half Dozen” attacks
