Researchers Hack Smartphone Fingerprint Security With AI-Driven Master Print Forgery

AI can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on what the AI is designed to do. Many AIs are meant to do things like help doctors diagnose disease, though other AI technologies can be turned towards more nefarious deeds. For example, a team of IEEE researchers has devised a method of harnessing an AI to generate fake fingerprints that work like a master key, to bypass the biometric locks that are employed on smartphones. The team notes that the attack using their AI-driven…

Stephen Hawking, The Big Bang And The Birth Of Time

Hawking’s fascination was with cosmology, the science which deals with the origin, evolution and ultimate fate of the universe. Einstein - never one to think small - had in 1917 applied his theory of gravity to the biggest gravitating system he could imagine: the whole Universe. Like Isaac Newton before him, he was wedded to the idea of a “static” universe, in which the stars and galaxies hung in space, unchanging, for all time. He therefore missed the message in…
