Self-driving cars are all about information technology, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things.

When the remaining issues in autonomous vehicles are solved, however, we will not only experience (promised) carefree driving but also advances in robotics […]
Chances are, you and your business are engaged with the cloud. Services like Dropbox are cloud-based, for instance, and easy to use. Your business, however, likely needs access to greater storage and technology than you can receive from a simple download. Moving to the cloud means you don’t have to maintain your own servers and […]
Modern computers and systems seem almost miraculous in their abilities and contributions to humanity. But proponents of quantum computers say the machines we are using today will be remembered as something like a horse-drawn buggy when the next leap in computing occurs.

Here is a primer on what’s been happening recently, what’s gone wrong, and how it might be addressed. To begin: Facebook collects a […]
As if the internet weren’t already a scary enough place, with cybercriminals lurking everywhere and unleashing malware at the rate of hundreds of thousands a day, the holiday season can be the stuff of nightmares. Cybercriminals really ramp up their wicked game on CyberMonday and during the holiday season – knowing full well more people […]
A new cyber threat emerged recently, and it puts any person using a wireless network, even one with a secure password, at risk of being hacked. The bug, called KRACK (Key Reinstallation Attack), is essentially a fundamental flaw in the WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) encryption that is used on all modern Wi-Fi routers. This […]
