This week on Cyber Frontiers Christian is joined by Jim to discuss common AI applications influencing everyday life. We take a look at the latest learning technology in discerning fake news, facial recognition at airports, and driverless cars in the Uber and Lyft fleets. We weigh in on what empirical methods are available for validating these use cases in AI, and the socioeconomic impacts that these technologies will create for the average guy in the next five to ten years.
This week on Cyber Frontiers Christian and Jim get together to talk about the highlights from DEFCON 26. We dive deep into how voicemails and SMS-unlocks are being used to bypass two-factor authentication on common technology platforms — and how simple attack surfaces are exploited to turn the old tech of voicemails into eye-candy for attackers. We also review the hardware and application based mechanisms used to avoid some of these commonly exploited vectors.
This Week on Cyber Frontiers Christian and Jim jump back into the world of machine learning and AI — a comprehensive conversation started on show 045 for those who missed it. We jump back in time to 1950 with the introduction of the Turing Test and walk us through its evolutions into modern AI and machine learning. We also discuss some of the recent cyber buzz with Gmail privacy concerns and new security features coming to iOS 12. Oh, and, fortnite players get excited about llamas too. Cyber Frontiers is all about Exploring Cyber security, Big Data, and the Technologies Shaping the Future! Christian Johnson will bring fresh and relevant topics to the show based on the current work he does.
