How Are Brains Different From Computers?

Ever wondered how brains are different from computers? This article shows how. Read on to find out.

Brains consist of cells called neurons and they connect with millions of other neurons and information gets transferred across connection gaps called synapses. Inside the cells data are processed which gives rise to an idea, concept or understanding.

Computers are built of hardware chips and the central processing unit (CPU) processes data after receiving them from the other chips. Continue reading How Are Brains Different From Computers?

The Role of Artificial Intelligence in Industrial Automation

The Role of Artificial Intelligence in Industrial Automation

To most people, Artificial Intelligence (AI) probably means sci-fi movies with robots and computers performing inconceivable human tasks. While this is partly true, what AI truly brings to the table is enabling machines to carry out intelligent tasks. As the challenges faced by global decision makers skyrocket, there is an urgent need to propel businesses and societies forward using the most modern technology. Continue reading The Role of Artificial Intelligence in Industrial Automation

Is Artificial Intelligence Directing Our Fate?

“I visualize a time when we will be to robots what dogs are to humans, and I’m rooting for the machines.” -Claude Shannon

“The Father of Information Theory” signaled the power of Artificial Intelligence decades ago and we are witnessing it now. We are not aware but most of our everyday tasks are influenced by Artificial Intelligence like credit card transactions, using GPS in our vehicles, personal assistance by various apps in our smartphones or online customer support by chatbots, and who can ignore the smart cars of Google which are very close to reality. Continue reading Is Artificial Intelligence Directing Our Fate?

How Good Are Fiber Optic Cables?

How Good Are Fiber Optic Cables?

Fiber optic cable versus wire transmission differences boil down to the quickness of photons versus the speed of electrons. While fiber optic cables do not travel around at the velocity of light, they are very close- just about 31 percent slower. Here are more benefits.

Security

Would it be that hackers can access business cable with relative ease, because of cable tapping or various other simple methodologies? The only method to penetrate fiber-optic is to cut the fibers physically, that may cause the transmission to disappear. Continue reading How Good Are Fiber Optic Cables?

Digital Signatures and Certificates

Digital Signatures and Certificates

When we think of VPNs, often our first thought is that of encryption of the user data. But adversaries or those intent on reading the data could However an attacker could record a conversation and then replay the replies between to participants. What we need to do is to be able to ensure the source of the data is genuine, and that is where digital signatures and certificates comes in.

To construct a Digital Signature, public key encryption systems must be in place. Continue reading Digital Signatures and Certificates

Use of a Common Access Card (CAC)

Use a Common Access Card (CAC) on a Personal Computer running Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux

A Common Access Card (CAC) is a smart card issued by the Department of Defense (DoD) to civilian employees, military personnel, and contractors. These cards, which contain user certificates, help protect data and restrict access by providing two-factor authentication to DoD systems, networks, applications, and websites.
