With IT budgets still a driving force; today, the talks have been shifted to the practical benefits that cloud computing can bring: affordability, flexibility, and scalability, to name a few. To seek cloud’s benefits, many organizations have been managing their own server environment. However, they are failing to gauge how much computing power and capacity they require for their organization as they may be purchasing “Excessive” and not utilizing all the available capacity. There is one compelling reason that has begun to surface and is driving many companies to re-examine how IT can better serve them business by harnessing a new breed of cloud technologies.

The success of an email campaign, on the other hand, is directly related to the technique employed. The idea is to create material that people will respond to or desire to receive in their inbox.

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.
