Failures in large networks can be prevented with local focus

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, computing, finance, transportation

We live in an increasingly connected world, a fact underscored by the swift spread of the coronavirus around the globe. Underlying this connectivity are complex networks—global air transportation, the internet, power grids, financial systems and ecological networks, to name just a few. The need to ensure the proper functioning of these systems also is increasing, but control is difficult.

Now a Northwestern University research team has discovered a ubiquitous property of a complex network and developed a novel computational method that is the first to systematically exploit that property to control the whole network using only . The method considers the computational time and information communication costs to produce the optimal choice.

The same connections that provide functionality in networks also can serve as conduits for the propagation of failures and instabilities. In such dynamic networks, gathering and processing all the information necessary to make a better decision can take too much time. The goal is to diagnose a problem and take action before it leads to a system-wide issue. This may mean having less information but being timely.

The most dangerous keylogger malware of 2022: Snake Keylogger

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, encryption, finance

Check Point Research, the Threat Intelligence division of the company, a leading global cybersecurity specialist provider, has released its Global Threat Index for the month of June 2022. Researchers have found that Emotet continues to be the number one malware and has also increased its global incidence by around 6%. Continuing with its climb of the last month, Snake Keylogger sneaks into the top three positions, taking the Formbook position, both still far from Emotet.

Emotet, has affected 14% of organizations around the world in June, an increase that is almost double compared to the previous month. This malware is highly profitable thanks to its ability to go unnoticed. Its persistence also makes it difficult to remove once a device is infected, making it the perfect tool in a cybercriminal’s arsenal. Conceived as a banking Trojan, it is often distributed via phishing emails and has the ability to embed other malware, increasing its ability to cause widespread damage.

Chip Maker Intel Has News That Customers and Companies Won’t Like

Posted by in categories: business, computing, economics, finance, health, policy, transportation

Intel ((INTC) — Get Intel Corporation Report ) is the bearer of additional bad news.

The chip giant will give an extra blow to consumers and businesses concerned about the health of the economy. For several weeks in fact, consumers have seen their bills for groceries and other products increase. The price of gasoline at the pump has jumped when they go to fill up their car.

And the situation is not getting any better since inflation remains at its highest for forty years, which should push the Federal Reserve to be even more aggressive in raising rates. However, economists have already warned that this monetary policy would plunge the economy into recession.

Nvidia rolls out a new platform to enable a hybrid quantum classical computing

Posted by in categories: finance, health, quantum physics, robotics/AI

The potential of quantum computing can in no way be undermined today as it solves some of the most obstinate challenges from bringing down global warming to dramatically bringing down drug discovery time and much more. And with this, several companies are in a spree to bring up quantum computing capabilities.

Nvidia has announced a unified computing platform that will bring in an open environment across quantum processors and classical computers. The company said that the platform aims at speeding enhanced quantum research and development across Artificial Intelligence (AI), High Performance Computing (HPC), health, finance and other disciplines.

The company claims that Nvidia Quantum Optimized Device Architecture or QODA is a first-of-its-kind platform for hybrid quantum-classical computers and aims to make quantum computing more accessible by creating a comprehensive hybrid quantum-classical programming model.

Humanity getting lost in the MATRIOSHKA Brain🤖

Posted by in categories: computing, finance, space travel

A Matrioshka Brain is a supermassive structure in space consisting of processors and connected to each other into a massive computer around a sun harnessing its energy completely. So far we haven’t built one as we don’t have the technology for it but when we do the question will be if people will be lost in the vast computing power of the Matrishka brain.

13 percent of U.S. adults report serious psychological distress during COVID-19

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, employment, finance, health

Serious psychological distress among U.S. adults remained fairly steady between April and July 2020, according to a research letter published online Nov. 23 in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Emma E. McGinty, Ph.D., from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, and colleagues conducted two waves of the Johns Hopkins COVID-19 Civic Life and Public Health Survey (April 7 to April 13, 2020, and July 7 to July 22, 2020). Changes in during the COVID-19 pandemic was evaluated among 1,337 U.S. adults.

The researchers found that 13 percent of respondents reported serious in July 2020 versus 14.2 percent in April 2020, with 72 percent of adults reporting serious distress in both waves. The prevalence of serious distress was highest among adults aged 18 to 29 years (25.4 percent in April versus 26.5 percent in July), those with income less than $35,000 (20.2 percent in April versus 21.2 percent in July), and Hispanic individuals (17.9 percent in April versus 19.2 percent in July) at both time points. Among those with serious distress, the most common stressors were concerns about contracting COVID-19 (65.9 percent) and pandemic effects on employment (65.1 percent) and finances (60.6 percent). Educational interruptions were a stressor among adults with serious distress attending college and/or with (69 percent).

Organ storage a step closer with cryopreservation discovery

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, chemistry, cryonics, finance, life extension

Australian scientists have taken the first step towards improved storage of human cells, which may lead to the safe storage of organs such as hearts and lungs.

The team’s discovery of new cryoprotective agents opens the door to many more being developed that could one day help to eliminate the need for organ transplant waiting lists. Their results are published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry B.

Cryopreservation is a process of cooling biological specimens down to very low temperatures so they can be stored for a long time. Storing cells through cryopreservation has had big benefits for the world—including boosting supplies at blood banks and assisting reproduction—but it is currently impossible to store organs and simple tissues.
