Augmentation: Early Days, Big Promises

To make things easier for humans – that’s the central principle of most, if not all, of technology. It has always been about accommodating our tasks, whether we want to make these more fuss-free, or we simply wish to do away with doing them, entirely. Moreover, these days, it’s not so much about creating brand new technology, in terms of physical tools; the focus is now on developing new apps to help us with various aspects of daily life. That’s not to say that humans will avoid manual labor, completely. While that prospect may be in the very distant future, seeds of possibility are already germinating. For instance, we now have the potential to interface with computers, without physically doing so. It’s called brain-machine interface (BMI), and it’s hot property in Silicon Valley right now. Social media giant Facebook has concrete plans in that direction, to enable their users to type with their mind, while technology darling Elon Musk is going the medical way, using the tech to create implants that will help people with brain impairments.

Go where the locals go. You’ve probably heard that travel tip from almost everyone who has been on holiday to a foreign country. But, how exactly will you know what and where these local-approved spots are? Of course, you can ask a local, but it will be a definite challenge in countries where people don’t speak much English.

Perhaps, Google caught wind of this dilemma that is common to travelers. The most popular search engine recently announced that it is updating its search and Maps services with a small (but significant for you, travelers) improvement— auto-translated local reviews.

Seeing Stars: Facebook Experiments with Star Ratings for Local Business Ads

Taking a leaf out of Yelp and Netflix’s (and a ton of other websites’) playbook, Facebook has started employing review stars in business ads. It’s still a rather small-scale experiment, where the stars only pop up in a small percentage of select ads. The social media giant plans to run the test for two months, but advertisers are free to opt-out of it should they choose to.

Google Wages Battle against Fake News via “Project Owl”

The internet has become a hotbed of false and inaccurate information. While yellow journalism has been around since medieval times, fake news is an internet-borne epidemic, and its implications have set off great confusion and unrest, worldwide.

Preying on Easy Dupes: Protecting Your Organization from Cyber Criminals

Millions of cyber criminals and spammers are hard at work. They are testing the strength of your organization’s cyber security, looking for a chink in your armor where they can launch their attacks. Sometimes, they don’t even have to search for a weak spot in the system; they just create one, instead. To gain the information they need to bypass your cyber security system, they simply have to get employees to download a corrupted attachment or click a malicious link. Hackers also have other avenues where they can wreak havoc online, such as social networking sites, phone calls, and emails — all without raising any red flags.
