Privileged identity, accounts and credentials are core, critical assets for enterprises that must be highly protected through a combination of technology and processes which are enabled by privileged access management. Delivering that protection is instrumental in breaking the data breach kill chain, helping to prevent attacks and mitigating the impact of those that do occur. A zero trust access control model is essential for all types of privileged access, both human and programmatic.

UNDERSTANDING AI DECEPTION AND HOW ONE CAN PREPARE AGAINST IT

Article | February 26, 2020

When talking about advents of artificial intelligence, we hear a lot about its adversarial attacks, specifically those that attempt to “deceive” an AI into believing, or to be more accurate, classifying, something incorrectly. For example, autonomous vehicles can be fooled into “thinking” stop signs are speed limit signs, pandas being identified as gibbons, or even having your favorite voice assistant be fooled by inaudible acoustic commands. Such examples showcase the narrative around AI deception. In another form, AI can be deceptive in manipulating the perceptions and beliefs of a person through “deepfakes” in video, audio, and images. The significant AI conferences held around the world are more frequently addressing the subject of AI deception too. And yet a lot of debates and discussions are happening on how we can defend against it through detection mechanisms

NISI Developing Innovative Medical Technologies with NetApp ONTAP AI

Article | August 7, 2020

The NISI Group (NISI) is a medical technology business headquartered in Hong Kong, specializing in the development, manufacture, and sales of innovative surgical and diagnostic products. Its corporate mission is to become a world leader in noninvasive surgical innovations.NISI first used an NVIDIA DGX-1 as a high-performance computing node to help with its survey of research courses. Because the initial training dataset was not large, the simulation was done entirely on the NVIDIA DGX-1. However, NISI was collecting more labeled medical images for training its new network and sourcing data from several hospitals and clinical centers, and its data volumes were growing exponentially.

Facebook, YouTube warn of AI moderation errors as coronavirus empties offices

Article | March 16, 2020

Alphabet Inc's YouTube, Facebook Inc and Twitter Inc warned on Monday that more videos and other content could be erroneously removed for policy violations, as the companies empty offices and rely on automated takedown software during the coronavirus pandemic. In a blog post, Google said that to reduce the need for people to come into offices, YouTube and other business divisions are temporarily relying more on artificial intelligence and automated tools to find problematic content. Such software is not always as accurate as humans, which leads to errors, it added, however. And "turnaround times for appeals against these decisions may be slower," it said.

How Governments Have Used AI to Fight COVID-19

Article | March 29, 2020

Governments all around the globe are using artificial intelligence (AI) to help fight against the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The technology is being used for various different things, including speeding up the development of testing kits and treatments, giving citizens access to real-time data, and tracking the spread of the virus. South Korea’s government, one that is being touted as an example for how to combat the virus, pushed their private sector to start developing testing kits right away, immediately after the reports began to arrive out of China. One of those companies was Seoul-based molecular biotech company Seegene, which used AI to help quicken the process of developing testing kits. The company was able to submit its solution to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) just three weeks after the scientists began their work. According to Chun Jong-Yoon, founder and chief executive of the company, the process would have taken at least two to three months without the use of AI.
