Un error del navegador fue suficiente para hackear un Amazon Echo

Dos investigadores de seguridad han sido coronados como los mejores piratas informáticos en el concurso de piratería Pwn2Own de este año después de desarrollar y probar varias vulnerabilidades de alto perfil, incluido un ataque contra un Amazon Echo.

Amat Cama y Richard Zhu, que componen el Equipo Fluoroacetato, obtuvieron $ 60,000 en recompensas de errores por su explotación de desbordamiento de enteros contra el último Amazon Echo Show 5, una pantalla inteligente con tecnología de Alexa.

Los investigadores descubrieron que el dispositivo usa una versión anterior de Chromium, los proyectos de navegador de código abierto de Google, que se habían bifurcado durante algún tiempo durante su desarrollo. El error les permitió tomar el "control total" del dispositivo si estaba conectado a un punto de acceso Wi-Fi malicioso, dijo Brian Gorenc, director de la Iniciativa Zero Day de Trend Micro, que organizó el concurso Pwn2Own.

Los investigadores probaron sus hazañas en un recinto de blindaje de radiofrecuencia para evitar cualquier interferencia externa.

"Esta brecha en el parche fue un factor común en muchos de los dispositivos IoT comprometidos durante el concurso", dijo Gorenc a TechCrunch.

Un error de desbordamiento de enteros ocurre cuando una operación matemática intenta crear un número pero no tiene espacio en su memoria, lo que hace que el número se desborde fuera de su memoria asignada. Eso puede tener implicaciones de seguridad para el dispositivo.

Cuando llegó, Amazon dijo que estaba "investigando esta investigación y tomará las medidas apropiadas para proteger nuestros dispositivos en función de nuestra investigación", pero no dijo qué medidas tomaría para corregir las vulnerabilidades, ni cuándo.

El Echo no fue el único dispositivo conectado a Internet en la feria. A principios de este año, el concurso dijo que los piratas informáticos tendrían la oportunidad de piratear un portal de Facebook, la pantalla inteligente habilitada para videollamadas del gigante de las redes sociales. Los hackers, sin embargo, no pudieron explotar el Portal.

En cuanto a lo que lo llevó específicamente a irse, Cox explicó que "no era algo en lo que sintiera que quería pasar otros 13 años en las redes sociales". Mark y yo vimos las cosas un poco diferente. . . yo pensar nosotros son todavía investigando u00a0como un industria, cómo hacer equilibrar protector el intimidad de la gente información y continuo u00a0a mantener personas seguro ", dijo Cox.

Sobre si avanzar hacia el cifrado fue parte de eso, dijo que cree que el cifrado es "excelente: y que" ofrece una enorme cantidad de protección ", pero señaló" iCiertamente hace que algunas de esas cosas sean más complicadas ”en el equilibrio de privacidad versus seguridad. Complementó los esfuerzos de Facebook para construir formas de atrapar a los malos actores, incluso si están protegidos por cifrado. Eso incluye iniciativas de alfabetización digital en Brasil e India antes de las elecciones, y ofrecer sistemas de reenvío para enviar información cuestionable a los verificadores de hechos. "Creo que hay ventajas y desventajas con estos sistemas y no soy una persona de línea dura en ninguno de ellos", dijo Cox, y señaló que lo que Facebook está construyendo es "resonante con lo que la gente quiere".

Se le preguntó a Cox sobre el gran debate sobre si Facebook debería permitir la publicidad política. “Creemos que la publicidad política puede ser buena y útil. A menudo favorece y se presenta frente a los titulares ". Sin embargo, al verificar los hechos, dijo:" Soy un gran admirador ", a pesar de que Facebook no está aplicando eso a los anuncios políticos. Él notó que "yo pensar el empresa debería investigar y es investigando micro focalización . . Si hay cientos de variantes siendo correr de el creativo entonces u00a0sus difícil a obtener tu brazos alrededor que es siendo dijo ". También abogó por un mayor contexto en la interfaz de usuario que distingue los anuncios políticos. u00a0

Desde que dejó Facebook, Cox se ha unido al consejo asesor de un grupo llamado Acrónimo, que está ayudando a construir la pila de tecnología de campaña y mensajería para candidatos progresivos. "Esta es un zona dónde mi percepción es ese el progresistas tener estado detrás en el capacidad a desarrollar y utilizar como una equipo infraestructura ese ayuda tener una bueno votante archivo, cómo desarrollar mensajería u00a0sólo básico política en 2019. "

norte

Lauren Goode, de Wired, le preguntó si se estaba alineando con los progresistas, adoptando una postura política, y si podía hacerlo mientras estaba en Facebook. "Absolutamente no ”, respondió Cox. "Y por qué es ese yo pensar cuando tu eres en una muy u00a0mayor papel a una plataforma, tienes el deber de ser mucho más neutral en tu política ".

Luego salió con una declaración audaz habilitada por su independencia. “Creo que Trump no debería ser nuestro presidente. La otra cosa que me importa mucho en este momento es el cambio climático y él no nos va a ayudar allí ".

Eso llevó a Cox a discutir que también ha estado trabajando para asesorar a la startup de San Francisco Planet Labs, que utiliza imágenes satelitales para rastrear el cambio climático. "los visión estaba a construir estas pequeña, acerca de zapatocaja-Talla satélites con solar panel panel alas y tener una flota de ellos en espacio, cual es real-hora imagen el Tierra."

Con esos datos, Cox explicó que puede rastrear incendios forestales, deforestación, centrales eléctricas de carbón, gas metano y más. Luego, " puede comienzo a contribuir a teniendo una salud sistema, dónde son básicamente imagen el Tierra cada hora, y entonces tu eres creando algunos público datos conjunto con herramientas ese enchufe dentro decisión fabricantes, bancos, seguro empresas, formuladores de políticas, inversores, periodistas, estudiantes ... "

norte

Cuando se le preguntó sobre la responsabilidad de las grandes tecnologías para abordar el cambio climático, Cox dijo "yo pensar a el muy menos sus haciendo una compromiso a siendo carbono-negativa ".

norte

El acrónimo y el trabajo de Planet Labs se entrelazan, ya que Cox cree que los datos climáticos demuestran la necesidad de alguien nuevo en la Oficina Oval. Si bien Cox no lo discutió en el escenario, Wired lo incluyó como parte del Grupo Shasta, que es el vehículo de Cox para contribuir a estos proyectos. Aún así, no está listo para lanzar una compañía propia en toda política y clima. "Estoy todavía entonces joven u00a0a esta campo ese yo no tener suficiente confianza en mi propio mental modelo de el mundo."

Cox concluyó que al aprovechar a los empleados de las grandes empresas y al hacer que los líderes de los equipos presten más atención al cambio climático "yo hacer pensar tecnología puede plomo ". u00a0

Las autoridades federales han informado sobre una posible causa de la misteriosa enfermedad que afecta a los usuarios de vape: el acetato de vitamina E, un químico que se encuentra en algunos productos de vapeo y que se ha demostrado que permanece en los pulmones mucho tiempo después. El hallazgo ha sido llamado un "avance", pero está lejos de ser la última palabra sobre la situación.

norte

Lamentablemente, la condición ya se ha cobrado la vida de al menos 39 personas, y se han reportado colectivamente más de 2,000 casos de todos los estados excepto Alaska. At present the only advice offered has been to stop vaping altogether.

norte

En una teleconferencia de medios, los jefes de la investigación de los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades explicaron la base para señalar con el dedo el acetato de vitamina E. La sustancia fue citada como un posible problema desde el principio, pero solo las pruebas recientes la han establecido como un sospechoso de buena fe, explicó el equipo.

norte

Las muestras tomadas de los pulmones de 29 víctimas de la afección se enviaron desde 10 estados diferentes, y se encontró acetato de vitamina E en todas ellas. “These findings provide direct evidence of vitamin E acetate as the primary site of injury within the lungs,” said Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the CDC .

norte

Aunque estuvo de acuerdo en que esta evidencia es un "avance", señaló que actualmente es simplemente un correlativo finding u2014 more research is required to establish causation, a saber, el mecanismo de daño, aunque se ha realizado otro trabajo en esa área.

norte

"Investigaciones anteriores no relacionadas con los CDC sugieren que cuando se inhala el acetato de vitamina E, puede interferir con la función pulmonar normal", dijo.

norte

"Es importante tener en cuenta que estos hallazgos no descartan otros posibles compuestos o ingredientes que pueden estar causando estas lesiones pulmonares", continuó. "Puede haber más de una causa del brote".

norte

Igualmente importantes son las estadísticas relacionadas con las fuentes de las sustancias en cuestión. Como se mencionó anteriormente en la investigación, una gran proporción de las personas que padecen esta afección usaban productos de THC, y específicamente los adquiridos a través de canales no regulados como los vendedores ambulantes.

norte

Es posible que se haya agregado el acetato de vitamina E con el propósito de cortar esencialmente el producto, mencionó Schuchat en respuesta a una pregunta en la llamada.

norte

"Eso puede hacerse con el propósito ilícito, o con fines de lucro, de diluir los materiales, hacer que se vea bien y tal vez no tener que usar tanto THC u otros ingredientes activos", dijo.

norte

Other potentially dangerous chemicals have been identified in vape products when heated and aerosolized, including many that even the creators might not have predicted.

norte

Conocer a un posible culpable no es el centro del problema, que sería que este químico (tal vez entre otros) ya se ha acumulado durante meses o años en los pulmones de los usuarios frecuentes de vape. El tratamiento es una línea paralela de investigación, pero conocer al menos una sustancia responsable debería ser útil.

norte

The CDC’s previous advice still stands, the officials noted: They advise avoiding vaping altogether, as there are very few controls at present over which ingredients are allowed in vape products, and what must be declared on the packaging, or indeed whether those declarations are in any way accurate.

Every startup is a story and every startup’s success depends — on some level — on how well they can either tell that story or get that story told.

norte

The best stories are the ones that create an instant brand. One that sparks a relationship or a moment of inspiration with customers and consumers alike. Those are the stories that transform industries and re-contextualize how businesses think of themselves and their competition.

norte

On the Extra Crunch Stage at Disrupt Berlin three of the finest practitioners of the dark arts of branding, public relations, marketing and communications will share their tips and tricks on how to get coverage for a company and how to use that coverage to get at the strategic objectives that companies need to fulfill as they grow.

norte

These alchemists of allusive include Collette Ballou, the founder of the eponymous Ballou PR; Katy Turner, the managing director of Multiple; and longtime public relations pro, Joanna Kirk.

norte

Ballou began her career in European public relations in the aftermath of the dot-com collapse in the U.S. in 2001. Both an investor and an entrepreneur, Ballou has worked with startups and investment firms including 83 North, Accel Partners, Box, Criteo, Eventbrite, Facebook, GoEuro (now Omio), Lakestar, Pinterest, Stack Overflow, Stripe, TransferWise, Twilio, Waze, WhatsApp and Zendesk. She also is an investor in venture funds, including Cavalry Ventures and Connect Ventures.

norte

Before founding Multiple, Turner worked in several different roles across the tech industry in the U.K. and Europe. She began her career at Orange (in a time when it was actually cool to work for a mobile operator, she says). That role led to positions at Eden Ventures, Videoplaza and as the chief marketing officer at Tech City UK. In addition to her work at Multiple, Turner also serves as a mentor for Seedcamp and Techstars and sits on the investment committee for the University of Bristol’s Enterprise Fund.

Recently, I shared the responses from several London-based investors; today, we spoke to eight of New Yorku2019s top consumer VCs:

Consumer health and banking startups were recurring areas of interest, and there’s a sense that apps and product brands which provide a deeper sense of community are an untapped opportunity.

Rebecca Kaden, Partner at Union Square Ventures

At USV, we are focused on opportunities that broaden access by leveraging technology to increase value and decrease cost in big buckets of consumer spend. In doing so, we are looking for ways to make products and services previously available to a select segment available to many more. In particular, we have been investing in areas of consumer health where the delivery mechanism not only makes the care more convenient but also more affordable and higher quality; products and platforms in financial services that change the traditional underlying model to drive financial health for a mass customer; and opportunities that create new access to education both for kids and lifelong learners.u00a0

norte

Within each of these segments, I’ve been very interested in how new communities are forming inside products–users that come for a specific offering are forming allegiance and increasing engagement by interacting with other users. I think that is a trend we will only see accelerate.

David Tisch, Founding Partner at BoxGroup

People are bored on their phones, not of their phones. I am most excited to meet founders working on consumer apps that bring happiness and fun to a mass consumer audience, as I continue to believe we are in the early days of mobile and the app store is not dead.

norte

These apps may look like a game, they may be a game, or they may be a new feed, but TikTok, Twitch, HQ, Yolo and other Snap app kit apps, Tinder and others have shown consumers want new apps, the barrier for adoption and retention isu00a0 just very high. All apps and games have a half-life, creating something with a very long one is really hard, but the demand is sitting on the phone scrolling thorough feeds, waiting for some new fun. We are excited about apps that allow people to interact with others in different ways, in new worlds, using new hardware, or new interfaces.

With the rise of the sober curious movement, we invested in Kin Euphorics, offering consumers a sexy option to an alcoholic drink, creating a social experience around a non-alcoholic beverage that doesnu2019t exist in the market today. With beer sales decreasing five years in a row, brands like Heineken are offering alcohol-free alternatives catering to this growing audience.

norte

With the decline of religion, we have seen the rise of what we call the u201crise of the alternate community.u201d Consumers are looking for ways to connect online and offline based on specific interests. Examples of this in our portfolio include The Wonder, a membership model for familyhood, Peanut, a social network for modern motherhood, and Co-Star, an astrology app.

Consumer health and banking startups were recurring areas of interest, and there’s a sense that apps and product brands which provide a deeper sense of community are an untapped opportunity.

Rebecca Kaden, Partner at Union Square Ventures

norte

At USV, we are focused on opportunities that broaden access by leveraging technology to increase value and decrease cost in big buckets of consumer spend. In doing so, we are looking for ways to make products and services previously available to a select segment available to many more. In particular, we have been investing in areas of consumer health where the delivery mechanism not only makes the care more convenient but also more affordable and higher quality; products and platforms in financial services that change the traditional underlying model to drive financial health for a mass customer; and opportunities that create new access to education both for kids and lifelong learners.u00a0

norte

Within each of these segments, I’ve been very interested in how new communities are forming inside products–users that come for a specific offering are forming allegiance and increasing engagement by interacting with other users. I think that is a trend we will only see accelerate.

norte

David Tisch, Founding Partner at BoxGroup

norte

People are bored on their phones, not of their phones. I am most excited to meet founders working on consumer apps that bring happiness and fun to a mass consumer audience, as I continue to believe we are in the early days of mobile and the app store is not dead.

norte

These apps may look like a game, they may be a game, or they may be a new feed, but TikTok, Twitch, HQ, Yolo and other Snap app kit apps, Tinder and others have shown consumers want new apps, the barrier for adoption and retention isu00a0 just very high. All apps and games have a half-life, creating something with a very long one is really hard, but the demand is sitting on the phone scrolling thorough feeds, waiting for some new fun. We are excited about apps that allow people to interact with others in different ways, in new worlds, using new hardware, or new interfaces.

norte

Anu Duggal, Founding Partner at Female Founders Fund

norte

With the rise of the sober curious movement, we invested in Kin Euphorics, offering consumers a sexy option to an alcoholic drink, creating a social experience around a non-alcoholic beverage that doesnu2019t exist in the market today. With beer sales decreasing five years in a row, brands like Heineken are offering alcohol-free alternatives catering to this growing audience.

norte

With the decline of religion, we have seen the rise of what we call the u201crise of the alternate community.u201d Consumers are looking for ways to connect online and offline based on specific interests. Examples of this in our portfolio include The Wonder, a membership model for familyhood, Peanut, a social network for modern motherhood, and Co-Star, an astrology app.

Recientemente reelegido, indonesio Presidente Joko Widodou00a0announced un deseo de mover la capital de la nación de Yakarta a la región de Kalimantan Oriental, citando preocupaciones ambientales, la más exigente de estas es el hecho de que Yakarta se está hundiendo literalmente debido a la extracción incontrolada de agua subterránea. Widodo said he wished to separate Indonesiau2019s government from its business and economic hub in Jakarta.

norte

However, what would a move from Jakarta do to Indonesiau2019s burgeoning startup economy?

norte

Cambio de centros administrativos gubernamentales

norte

Según Widodo, los estudios han determinado que el mejor sitio para la nueva capital propuesta es entre North Penajam Paser y Kutai Kertanegara, ambos ubicados en Kalimantan Oriental. La base de esta selección se debe a estudios que destacan el regionu2019s relative protection de desastres naturales, especialmente en comparación con otras regiones. Esto definitivamente sería un beneficio para el corazón gubernamental de Indonesia, ya que garantiza funciones administrativas continuas en una región propensa a desastres. Other governments have separated administrative centers from their economic hubs with varying degrees of success, with some examples being Brazilu2019s creation of Brasu00edlia, as well as Koreau2019s projected move from Seoul to Sejong.

norte

Lo más interesante de los ejemplos anteriores es que estas nuevas ciudades ramificadas no están sorprendentemente centradas en el gobierno. In Brasu00edlia, roles tied to the government make up nearly 40% de todos los trabajos, mientras que en Sejong, la falta de instalaciones como el transporte público y el espacio comercial hace que muchos conmutar en Sejong para el trabajo del gobierno, en lugar de establecerse permanentemente en el área. Dada la naturaleza semidesarrollada de Kalimantan Oriental, estas anécdotas son bastante preocupantes si el gobierno realmente se muda a North Penajam Paser o Kutai Kertanegara.

norte

Estos hechos plantean la cuestión de los impactos económicos de tales movimientos gubernamentales. De hecho, incluso se puede opinar que, si bien estos movimientos permiten el crecimiento gubernamental, en última instancia, pueden perjudicar económicamente al país debido a una desinversión entre los centros gubernamentales y económicos. In this specific instance, it is most important to analyze the impact of such a move on Indonesiau2019s startup economy, as the nation is one the worldu2019s leaders in startup growth.

norte

Indonesiau2019s startup economy

norte

Indonesia se ha convertido en un centro de inicio dentro del sudeste asiático en los últimos años, con una población de más de 260 millones marking it as the worldu2019s fourth-most populous country. Additionally, Indonesiau2019s mobile-first population has enabled the full embrace of the internet era, with 95% de todos los usuarios de internet en Indonesia conectados a la web a través de un dispositivo móvil.

norte

Del mismo modo, el crecimiento de las startups se ha disparado en el archipiélago de la isla, con varios unicornios con sede en Indonesia que perturban las economías locales, regionales y globales. El gigante de comercio electrónico respaldado por Softbank Tokopedia es actualmente en conversacionesu00a0for a pre-IPO funding round, while emerging super-app Gojek controls significant portions of the ride-sharing industry in Asia, simultaneously expanding intou00a0industrias separadasu00a0to include digital payments, food delivery, and evenu00a0vídeo transmitido en vivo. Además, el portal de viajes en línea Traveloka (en el que Expedia tiene un participación minoritaria) has recentlyu00a0ingresó el espacio de servicios financieros, lo que aumenta su impacto dentro de Asia. Estos ejemplos específicos de startups de alto crecimiento demuestran una población ávida de innovación, impulsando aún más la economía de startups en desarrollo.

Academy is scaling up a coding program for ‘the heartland’"},"content":{"rendered":"

The crowded landscape of programs teaching non-technical people to become software developers has been a proving ground for a new model of education financing: income share agreements (ISAs). With an ISA, students avoid paying tuition upfront or taking out private loans, instead paying a percentage of their income for a time after graduation after they’re earning a minimum income.

norte

The model aligns education providers with students’ career outcomes, and one startup is staking a claim to be the leader in the space; Kenzie Academy, a year-long program with a physical campus in Indianapolis u2014 and a student body that’s 66 percent online u2014 announced a partnership with Community Investment Management (CIM) earlier this week that provides $100 million in debt to cover the operating costs associated with students who defer payment through ISAs.

norte

Kenzie co-founder and CEO Chok Ooi says that core to Kenzie’s mission is the goal that its graduates “can stay in the heartland and attract more jobs so that someone coming out of the Midwest no longer has to move to Silicon Valley or New York to have a successful career in tech.” This $100 million is one of the largest commitments yet to financing ISAs and Kenzie is using it to recruit a more diverse population of students who may not be able to afford tuition or qualify for student loans otherwise.

norte

I interviewed Ooi to understand how Kenzie differentiates itself from competitors, how it has iterated its model to improve retention and job placement and how he expects the ISA market to evolve over the next couple years. Here’s the transcript of our conversation, edited for length and clarity:

norte

Eric Peckham: The landscape of software developer training programs is crowded. Where did you see an opportunity to do something different, and how do you position Kenzie relative to others in the market?

norte

Chok Ooi: My co-founder came from Galvanize, so we observed firsthand the proliferation of tech and coding boot camps. These are typically short-term, three-to-five month programs and they tend to do well serving people with college degrees. I would say that they are disrupting the masters’ program space. We saw a major gap in programs that serve a much larger demographic of people who are much earlier in their development. People who never went to college, or did a little bit of college and dropped out, or just never had a professional work experience. A three-month training is insufficient to get them to a point where they could land a technical job and be successful.

norte

We saw an opportunity to bring high-quality tech education to the American heartland that is 12 months in length. For about two-thirds of our students, this is their first post-secondary credential training.

norte

We are giving them not just the technical skills, but elements from a traditional four-year college as well, like critical thinking, problem-solving and communication skills.

norte

Compared to those other bootcamps or training programs, is Kenzie targeting different job outcomes for its graduates?

norte

We did a survey of our students that asked them to name the top five tech companies they desired to work for. None of the Silicon Valley companies made the list other than Salesforce. Indianapolis is the second largest Salesforce office outside of San Francisco. The rest of the companies our students named were companies like DMI and Zylo that people in Silicon Valley don’t hear about but are doing very well in the Midwest. Their friends work there. They’re a fabric of the community. If we really want to create job opportunities for the rest of America, we cannot adopt the Silicon Valley mindset.

norte

So how do you evaluate technical aptitude and critical thinking in the admissions process? What’s that process look like, and how has it evolved over the last couple of years? What have you learned in order to make that more effective?

norte

Prior to founding Kenzie, I started a company nine years ago called AglityIO. The model for AgilityIO was similar to companies like Andela. We were trying to solve the talent crunch in the Bay Area by recruiting and training people with the raw talent in Vietnam. Today, that company works with Google, Uber, NerdWallet, Meetup.com and 150 other tech companies. So Iu2019ve experience in developing processes to identify raw talent in this context.

norte

As people are doing the online assessments, we collect data points of how long it takes for them to solve the problem, what their different decision points are and things like that. Then as they get enrolled in Kenzie, we continue to collect attendance data, grades, and then placement data and use that to look at success and failure cases. We constantly refine our assessment.

norte

Are you seeing any particular pattern or cluster in the applications youu2019re receiving or the candidates youu2019re accepting in terms of prior field of employment or aspect of their background?

Microsoft Research es un global parque infantil distribuido para personas interesadas en resolver problemas científicos fundamentales.

Estos proyectos a menudo se centran en el aprendizaje automático y la inteligencia artificial, y desde Microsoft está en una misión para infundir todos sus productos con más inteligencia artificial, no es sorprendente que también esté buscando formas de integrarse Investigación de Microsoft innovaciones en el resto de la empresa.

En general, la compañía está tratando de encontrar formas de ser más innovadora, especialmente en torno a su trabajo en IA, y está implementando procesos para hacerlo. Microsoft también es inusualmente abierto con respecto a este proceso, y en realidad lo hizo un poco más enfocado esta semana en Encender, una conferencia anual que generalmente se enfoca más en temas técnicos de administración de TI.

norte

At Ignite,u00a0Microsoft will for the first time present these projects externally at a dedicated keynote. Eso se siente similar a lo que Google used to do with its ATAP group at its I/O events and is obviously meant to showcase the cutting-edge innovation that happens inside of Microsoft (outside of making Excel smarter).

norte

Para gestionar sus esfuerzos de innovación de inteligencia artificial, Microsoft creó el Microsoft AI grupo dirigido por la vicepresidenta Mitra Azizirad, que tiene la tarea de establecer un liderazgo de pensamiento en este espacio interna y externamente, y ayudar a la empresa a innovar más rápido (La IA de Microsoft para el bien los proyectos también se incluyen en el ámbito de este grupo). Me senté con Azizirad para tener una mejor idea de lo que está haciendo su equipo y cómo se acerca a lograr que las empresas innoven en torno a la IA y saquen proyectos de investigación del laboratorio.

norte

"Comenzamos a elaborar una narración para la compañía de lo que realmente significa estar en un mundo impulsado por la inteligencia artificial y lo que vemos desde una perspectiva diferenciada", dijo Azizirad. "Lo que hemos hecho en esta área es algo que ha resonado y aterrizado bien. Y ahora estamos incluyendo IA, pero nos estamos expandiendo más allá de él a otros cambios de paradigma como la interacción hombre-máquina, el futuro de la informática y la responsabilidad digital, como algo más que un conjunto de principios y prácticas, sino un área de innovación en y de sí mismo."

norte

Actualmente, Microsoft está haciendo un muy buen trabajo hablando y pensando horizonte uno oportunidades, así como horizontes tres proyectos que aún están a años, dijo. "Horizonte dos, tenemos que mejorar, y eso es lo que estamos haciendo".

norte

Vale la pena destacar que Microsoft AI, que se lanzó hace unos dos años, marca la primera vez que hay un equipo de negocios, marketing y gestión de productos asociado con Microsoft Research, por lo que el equipo obtiene una gran cantidad de información sobre las próximas tecnologías. Solo en los últimos años, Microsoft ha publicado más de 6,000 artículos de investigación sobre IA, algunos de los cuales claramente tienen un futuro en los productos de la compañía.

Los límites escritos en las leyes de inmigración existentes tanto en el número de tarjetas verdes emitidas cada año, como en el número de tarjetas verdes disponibles en función del país de origen, dejan a algunos esperando medio siglo o más para obtener una tarjeta verde, con personas de la India y China enfrenta los tiempos de espera más largos para obtener tarjetas verdes basadas en el empleo.

En este año fiscal, que finalizó el 31 de octubre, estaban disponibles 226,000 tarjetas verdes patrocinadas por familias y 141,918 tarjetas verdes basadas en empleo. And the per-country cap, which is the maximum number of green cards available to individuals born in a particular country, was 25,754.u00a0

Aunque estas leyes de los EE. UU. Plantean un desafío adicional para las personas nacidas en países con la mayor demanda de tarjetas verdes, si nació en India o China, hay algunas cosas que puede hacer para mitigar esta espera.

The EB-1 green card is considered the u201cfirst preferenceu201d for those who’ll receive offers for employment-based green cards. It offers three unique and accelerated sub-paths:u00a0

norte

    norte

  • EB-1A green card for individuals of extraordinary abilityu00a0
  • norte

  • EB-1B tarjeta verde para investigadores y profesores destacados
  • norte

  • EB-1C tarjeta verde para gerentes y ejecutivos multinacionales
  • norte

norte

los EB-1A green card for extraordinary ability does not require an employer sponsor or even a job offer, which means itu2019s one of the few self-petition green cards. To demonstrate eligibility,u00a0you must be able to show you have extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics and that you and your work have received national or international acclaim.u00a0

norte

Las personas que solicitan el EB-1A no necesitan obtener la certificación laboral (como se requiere de los empleadores). Eso significa que el proceso es más simple y puede ser mucho más rápido que las tarjetas de residencia basadas en el empleo. Además, un solicitante individual puede tener más flexibilidad para cambiar de trabajo que si un empleador solicitara en su nombre.

norte

los EB-1B La tarjeta verde para investigadores y profesores destacados requiere que un empleador lo patrocine. Candidates for the EB-1B green card must demonstrate great achievements in their academic field.u00a0

norte

Y finalmente, el EB-1C La tarjeta verde para gerentes y ejecutivos multinacionales permite que un empleador traiga a un ejecutivo o gerente que ha estado trabajando en el extranjero a los Estados Unidos para vivir y trabajar. El candidato EB-1C debe haber trabajado fuera del país para el empleador durante al menos un año.

Este análisis del Instituto Cato estimates individuals born in China and India face waiting eight and nine years, respectively, for an EB-1 green card.u00a0A pesar de la pequeña y creciente cartera de pedidos de tarjetas verdes EB-1 para personas nacidas en China e India, sigue siendo una de las opciones más rápidas.

Two security researchers have been crowned the top hackers in this year’s Pwn2Own hacking contest after developing and testing several high profile exploits, including an attack against an Amazon Echo.

Amat Cama and Richard Zhu, who make up Team Fluoroacetate, scored $60,000 in bug bounties for their integer overflow exploit against the latest Amazon Echo Show 5, an Alexa-powered smart display.

norte

The researchers found that the device uses an older version of Chromium, Google’s open-source browser projects, which had been forked some time during its development. The bug allowed them to take “full control” of the device if connected to a malicious Wi-Fi hotspot, said Brian Gorenc, director of Trend Micro’s Zero Day Initiative, which put on the Pwn2Own contest.

The researchers tested their exploits in a radio-frequency shielding enclosure to prevent any outside interference.

“This patch gap was a common factor in many of the IoT devices compromised during the contest,” Gorenc told TechCrunch.

norte

An integer overflow bug happens when a mathematical operation tries to create a number but has no space for it in its memory, causing the number to overflow outside of its allotted memory. That can have security implications for the device.

norte

When reached, Amazon said it was “investigating this research and will be taking appropriate steps to protect our devices based on our investigation,” but did not say what measures it would take to fix the vulnerabilities u2014 or when.

norte

The Echo wasn’t the only internet-connected device at the show. Earlier this year the contest said hackers would have an opportunity to hack into a Facebook Portal, the social media giant’s video calling-enabled smart display. The hackers, however, could not exploit the Portal.
