2050: The Future Of Healthcare!

2050: The Future Of Healthcare!


From how it can grow, to how it can cure,
and how the human race needs to prepare for what’s coming, join us as we show you the
future of healthcare via the year 2050. Our world right now is in a state of panic
in terms of a medical perspective. A new virus has come and reared its ugly head
and many people are getting sick, and even dying, because of it. The governments of the world are very much
looking for answers from anyone who can provide them so that this epidemic can stop. Looking at where we are in 2020, it’s very
hard to see where we will be in 30 years when the year 2050 hits. 2050 is allegedly going to be a year that
helps define the human race in the future, but given all that is going on, you can’t
help but wonder if we’re even going to last until that point. If for no other reason than the current epidemic
that is hitting the planet could easily happen again at any point with another disease, or
virus, or bacteria, and so on and so forth until eventually…we’re wiped out, or we’re
so crippled that we can’t take care of ourselves. Either way, that’s a far cry from the “utopia”
some people paint for the year of 2050. And this begs the question about the healthcare
that we have right now in the world, and whether it’ll advance enough in the future to help
us fight things like this from ever happening again. The state of healthcare all over the world
is without a doubt divided. And by “divided” I mean that each country
has their own beliefs about Healthcare system and how its people should get it. “According to a major 2016 UK study, urgent
action is needed to control the use of antibiotics before they stop working and leave a number
of major conditions untreatable. Resistance to antibiotics is growing at such
an alarming rate that they risk losing effectiveness entirely, which means that medical procedures
such as caesarean sections, joint replacements and chemotherapy could soon become too dangerous
to perform and unless serious action is taken soon, drug resistant infections will kill
10 million people a year by 2050!” That is an incredible amount of people that
could die because of things that used to be treated very easily. And the study further noted that this could
get even worse: “Drug resistant infections are thought to
be growing due to over-use of medicine such as antibiotics and anti-fungus treatments
to treat minor conditions such as the common cold. With overuse, resistance to the drugs builds
up and some conditions become incurable. Research has also suggested that antibiotic
use in pig farming is common as poor living conditions mean such treatment is necessary
to prevent infections spreading between livestock and that this passes down to humans through
pork consumption, increasing resistance levels further. In the UK, 45% of all antibiotics are given
to livestock. The study estimates that without action now,
the cost of the antibiotic failure will be $100 trillion between before 2050 and antimicrobial
resistance might soon become a greater threat to mankind than cancer currently is. ” Overcoming the greed of pharmaceutical companies
is a major thing that has to be done in order make healthcare better as we get to 2050. Because the higher the prices go up for things
like basic medicine and necessary supplies to live, the more the people are going to
hurt, and you can’t have a utopia if people on various levels are sick or dying because
they can’t get what they need. Or, someone who has no family history of cancer
and no reason to have it will get it for some random and arbitrary reason. It’s random, and it sucks, and it’s killing
people. What’s more, one of the only ways we know
how to “treat” it is through chemotherapy, which is highly dangerous in its own right
and can cause all sorts of problems for the person even IF the cancer is killed. If medicine is going to advance, it can’t
just be at the most basic of medicine levels, it has to be at all levels. So that we can look at a cancer patient, identify
what kind of issue they are having, and then give them a treatment
plan that will more than likely work WITHOUT destroying their body or putting them through
unnecessary pain. It may be a pipe dream where we are right
now, but there are a lot of people working on it, and there is always hope that we can
get it to work. Cancer research is one of the biggest fields
of medicine, and though it might take an unspecified amount of time to get to where we want to
be with getting a true cure or fix for it, it could come. And when it comes, it’ll change the world
as we know it. Furthermore, with the growth of AI technology,
we could have pharmacies with personal diagnostic stations that will scan a person, take
a small blood sample, and have an AI note things that they may need to do, or medicine
to get in order to feel better.

5 Future Motorcycles YOU MUST SEE

5 Future Motorcycles YOU MUST SEE


Now the auto company has finally revealed
its latest concept – futuristic BMW Vision Next 100 motorcycle, which showed
off a revolutionary bike design with multiple smart features.
According to representatives, Next 100 allows the biker to feel freedom.
For instance, the biker will not have to wear a helmet for the motorcycle would never fall.
Indeed, the futuristic bike is equipped with a self-balancing technology –
gyroscope – which will prevent any incidents even if the biker is a newbie.
The upper frame, seat, and fenders are made of carbon, while LED technology provides lighting.
But there’s more to it than that. BMW provides a complete set of intelligent systems that
will display information on huge smart glasses. For example, a set of sensors and systems
will accurately predict the danger on the road and offer the biker the best option.
If there’s no reaction, the motorcycle will slow down on its own and turn in the right
direction. The navigation map and the image from the rearview camera are also available
via the glasses. The concept of Honda Riding Assist-e motorcycle
was displayed at the Tokyo Motor Show 2017.
The Japanese manufacturer announced several pictures but still was very
reserved about the details. The essence of the concept is in the technology
that allows the motorcycle to balance on its own due to the automatic
rotation of the front wheel accompanied by slight movements of the steering wheel.
In order to simplify the process of driving for beginners, Honda manufacturers slightly
lowered the seat to find the most suitable center of gravity. They also added a special
balancing system without installing a gyroscope. New BMW E-Scooter with an electric motor comprises
two main features – dynamics similar to a maxi-scooter with an
internal combustion engine, and a wide scope of use in real-life conditions.
Battery capacity allows a user to drive more than 100 km on a single charge.
The scooter is capable of performing safe and confident maneuvers on
urban highways. The charger has a cable that makes it possible to connect
the battery to a standard home outlet to charge the vehicle.
Given the electric power unit of the scooter, BMW takes into account all the
nuances of electrical safety. There’s always more work than just to release
a new product, it is important to present it to the public in the
best way – it should be a natural awestruck! Honda V4 Concept was just
such a marketing bait, which the company presented back in the autumn
of 2008. The vehicle itself looked so futuristic that no one could even
imagine it being embodied in real life.
How far could you ride using such wheels without axles? But the designers
did not set the goal to realize the concept in reality. The model became a
benchmark for a new corporate design which subsequently was used in all
top Honda models. Japanese manufacturer Kawasaki introduced
a new concept of Kawasaki J at Tokyo exhibition, which quite resembled the concept of Yamaha
Tesseract. The 3-wheel concept is equipped with an electric
drive, but its main feature is the flexibility of design, which allows the rider to adjust
the setting of the bike from vertical (wheels are set wide and handles are raised up) to
a sportier one (wheels are set close and handles are lowered).
As you can see, there’s no steering wheel, a pair of levers is used instead. These are
attached directly to the front wheels. Kawasaki did not go into the details of the concept,
emphasizing only the fact that it is equipped with high-capacity Gigacell nickel-metal hydride
batteries.

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ True Wireless Earbuds Review [2020]


Whether you got your set of galaxy Buds plus
when purchasing the Galaxy S20 or are just thinking of getting a pair, may be as an upgrade
from the previous model; You’re probably wondering how they measure up, especially
when compared with some of the more recent releases like the airpods pro and the Jabra
elite and elite active 75t. Well we can help you with that.
Hey guys, Marc here from rtings.com where we help people find the best products for
their needs. Today we will be taking a look at the galaxy buds plus, the 2020 update to
samsung truly wireless headphone line up. With this model samsung advertises a better
battery life, connectivity and mic performance which we’ve put to the test. So are they
worth it? Or are you better off with one of the other 50+ truly wireless headphones we’ve
tested so far. Well In this video we’re going over their
design, sound quality, isolation leakage and mic performance as well as their connectivity
and active features but as always, let’s start with what’s in the box.
For the Galaxy Buds Plus you get a Charging case (with wireless Qi Charging), 3 tip , 3
fin sleeve options to get a better fit for stability, a USB-C charging cable the Manuals
and the galaxy buds plus headphones. Pretty much standard content for these kinds of headphones,
so now lets have a look at their design. The Galaxy buds plus keep the same design
language as the previous models of the lineup and as of now are available in 4 color schemes;
Black Red, cloud blue and the white variant we have here.. The Plus like the old galaxy buds feel decently
high-end and well designed for their price range. They don’t look quite as premium
as the Sennheiser momentum True wireless or the BEO Play 3.0 but do feel like well-built
headphones that should last you a while. They are easily one of the more compact headphones
we’ve tested which helps with comfort and stability, but we’ll talk about that a bit
later on. The size of the buds and the case makes them very easy carry around in your
pocket and the case provides a good amount of protection against impacts or drops.
The biggest downside of their build quality is with their ip rating and water resistance
although we do not have an inhouse test for that just yet. Unfortunately, the Buds plus
are only rated IPX2 which offers mild splash resistance but also means they won’t be the
ideal option if you want to use these headphones as your primary sports headset; Since they
may get damaged if you sweat a lot when training or running. Most of the recent truly wireless
headphones and even some of the more budget options we’ve tested are either iPX4 or
higher which is especially disappointing for the buds plus since it means they may get
damaged by the rain or your regular workout routine. This was also one of the more common
user issues with the older models of the line up so it’s unfortunate that Samsung didn’t
improve their design in this aspect As for comfort though, there is a slight improvement
over the older models thanks to the more compact form factor.
The previous galaxy buds where one of the more comfortable truly wireless headphones
we’ve tested and so are the buds plus. Their compact design makes them a good fit even
for people with smaller ears and thanks to the three tip and sleeves options you can
find a good combination that works for you and won’t move around much once in your ears.
That combined with their lightweight build makes them quite stable once you get the right
fit. They would be excellent option for sports if the IP rating was a little better.
On the upside for everyday use their design is more comfortable and stable in the ears
than the Elite active 75t and since they’re a bit more compact they won’t stick out of
your ears like the Airpods Pro if that’s not your thing. For their control scheme
the Buds plus do not improve much over the previous generations of the lineup.
You can play and pause your music with a single tap of either earbud. A double tap of the
right bud will skip tracks and a double tap on the left rewinds. Using the app, you can
further customize the controls by changing the function of the long press on both buds.
In this sense you can set volume up to a long press of right earbud and the left to turn
your volume down. Unfortunately, you can only set one function to the long press, so you
won’t be able to use the pass-through feature, or voice commands if you set volume controls
or vice versa. This again is slightly disappointing since other truly wireless models have all
their functions available on the earbuds like the Active 75t and some of the older models
from jabra. Overall, apart from the slightly more compact
form factor, which does make them a bit more comfortable, the buds plus are almost identical
in design to the regular Galaxy buds. Unfortunately, this means that some of the downsides like
a poor ip rating and mediocre controls are also present in the plus model
And that’s it for their design now let’s hear their sound quality, isolation, leakage
and microphone performance. Sound quality wise the galaxy buds have a
very neutral sound that may be a hit or miss for some. do keep in mind that this is a relative
comparison not an absolute one so while it does give you a sense of what these headphones
will sound like if you do get them and use the same track you may not hear exactly the
same thing as you can see on the graph, and probably
heard the buds plus have an almost flat sound profile which means they will reproduce most
tracks accurately but may lack a little bit of excitement especially in the bass range.
The mid and treble ranges are pretty much identical to our target curve which is great
for instruments and vocals and they still pack a bit more bass than the airpods pro
but would not sound as deep as the older jabra elite 75t.
Note that we’ve tested the buds on the default, normal eq setting so you can get a bit more
bass if you switch to the Bass boost or Dynamic EQ. Even then though they still feel a bit
bass light when compared to alot of the truly wireless models we’ve tested. However that
isn’t necessarily a bad thing and it all depends your music tastes and preferences. Moving on to noise isolation. Unlike some
of the more recent releases like the airpods pro which have active noise cancelling, the
galaxy buds only block sound passively with the quality of the seal you can achieve once
they are in your ears. On the upside since they fit most ears pretty well their passive
noise isolation is decent and should be enough to block the noise of a typical commute to
work especially if you have some music playing in the background. They won’t be as good as
the airpods pro for travelling in very noisy conditions but should provide enough isolation
for most environments. Like most truly wireless designs these headphones
barely leak once in your ears and should be quiet enough to use at the office or even
in a library. At max volumes and in a very quiet room some people around you may still
hear a few S and T sounds, but it won’t be loud enough to be distracting for most.
For microphone quality here the Galaxy buds plus do perform a little better than the older
model as advertised, although not by a considerably large margin.
Recording Quality Recording Sample Unfortunately, like most truly wireless Bluetooth
headphones the Galaxy buds plus struggle to accurately record you voice. The plus performed
slightly worst in our test than the older model for recording quality but due to the
limitations of the Bluetooth bandwidth we expect both headsets to be about equally mediocre
at recording your voice. However, noise handling is better on the Buds plus. The plus have
a bit more mics in their design so they use this to their advantage to cancel a bit of
the noise that the main recording mic picks up when you’re on the phone. As you can see
here in these samples. Overall, there’s an improvement in mic performance but they still won’t be a good choice for
making a lot of calls when on the go. Now let’s talk about their active features.
First up, latency, here its pretty much standard fare for most truly wireless buletooth headset.
The Galaxy buds plus had about 351 ms of latency when tested with our bluetooth dongle on PC.
However, they do much better when paired to an actual phone. With about 119ms on iphone
and surprisingly a bit higher on android but not by much at 134ms. You may notice some
delay when watching videos or playing games on your phone, especially compared to the
older model, but it won’t be that big an issue for most, and compared to a typical
Bluetooth headsets, which hover around 200ms, they perform slightly better.
Wireless range on the upside is slightly better than the older model in direct line of sight.
Its not the greatest bluetooth range we’ve measured but should be more than enough for
typical use especially if you are usually paired to a phone that you mostly carry around
in your pocket. Battery performance however is where the galaxy
buds plus shine the most. These compact buds measured 13.3 hours of continuous playtime
on a single charge in our battery test. This makes them a great option for all day listening
lasting a good 4 to 5 hours more than the previous model, so you may not even have to
carry the case around depending on your travel plans that day. They are one of the longest
lasting truly wireless headphones on a single charge beating the previous record holder
in our test; the Powerbeats pro. Unfortunately like the beats the Galaxy buds
plus only have 1 additional charge in the case for a total of 26+ hours of playtime.
It should be more than enough for most use cases, but a couple more extra charges wouldn’t
hurt on the upside the Qi wireless charging works pretty well but wont be as fast as charging
them with the provided usb cable. As for their app support the Buds plus are
compatible with Samsung Galaxy wearable app. It’s an almost identical app to that of the
previous gen model and it gives you a few customization options like presets and being
able to change the long press function on both buds.
You also have ambient control as well as battery data for each bud but unfortunately no graphic
or parametric EQ which would have been great additions. Also this time the App is available
on IOS and provides about the same set of features so the buds plus aren’t as restrictive
as the previous model if you have a iPhone. The Galaxy buds plus are truly wireless Bluetooth
5.0 headphones that have no other connection options. They pair very quickly with android
phones but do not have multi device pairing, so you won’t be able to seamlessly switch
between your devices like some of the other bluetooth headphones we’ve tested. On their
case they have a usb-C port for power and to connect to your PC for firmware updates
and that’s about it. The Samsung Galaxy buds overall are a minor
update to the previous gen model. The biggest improvement being their excellent battery
life on a single charge especially for such a compact truly wireless headphone. They are
also a bit more comfortable and have a very neutral sound that some people may love but
this will depend on their music taste and preferences. Unfortunately, their low IP rating
makes them less convenient for sports than they could have been especially when compared
to some of the other truly wireless models we’ve tested.
In this sense if you want a more sports-oriented headset with a similar list of features and
better controls then the get the Jabra ELite 75t or Elite Active 75t which we will most
likely make a separate video for soon so that you can compare and get the right headset
for you. On the other hand, if your more an iOS user
and want a bit more isolation when traveling the airpods pro would be a better choice.
They won’[t last as long on a single charge but do provide a good mixed usage experience
overall that some may prefer especially thanks to the noise cancellation. However, they sound
even more bass light than the already neutral Galaxy buds plus and they are considerably
more expensive. And that’s pretty much it. Do you have a
pair of galaxy bud plus headphones, if so are you happy with your purchase? Let us know
in the comments below. Also we’ve made a few changes to our video

How CATASTROPHIC Is The Future Of CLIMATE CHANGE? | Mashable Explains


– Your planet has warmed up by
nearly two degrees Fahrenheit, or just over one degree Celsius, since the late 1800s. This is because humanity
has pumped a prodigious amount of carbon dioxide
into the atmosphere. In fact, the amount of the
CO2 in the atmosphere today is the highest it’s been
in at least 800,000 years. But more likely millions of years. But that’s not even the bad news, we’re on track to warm
Earth by around another three-and-a-half degrees
Fahrenheit this century alone. That projected warming is
based upon nations’ current, woefully insufficient policies
to slash carbon emissions. Climate scientists have
researched how much Earth is like to warm based upon
how much carbon we’ll burn this century, have concluded this is
likely where we’re headed. Though critically, these
scientists stress this warming could end up being less or just the opposite. That’s because there are still
hotly researched questions, about how different parts of the world, like the oceans, the arctic, and clouds, will react to a
continually warming planet. The “good news,” is it’s pretty unlikely, but not impossible, that humans will heat the planet even more by a whopping nine degrees Fahrenheit. That would basically mean, digging up and burning all the
reachable coal on the planet but the warming that we’re on track for, another three-and-a-half so degrees, will still be pretty damn catastrophic. Just look at what this warming
has done to charred Australia, rapidly melting Greenland, and the relentlessly warming oceans. This is a world we want to avoid. So imagine if we did something. If society did radically transform our transportation, energy
and industrial systems. There’s hope we could limit
the terrible consequences of an artificially heated globe. (intense electronic music)

Why You Should Be Using More Emojis At Work


– Over the last 20 years, emojis have grown from a
few simple low-res images into a massive lexicon
with thousands of icons. They’re changing the way we communicate, and they are everywhere. The only place they haven’t
caught on, in the office. They’re seen as unprofessional,
or even passive-aggressive. But new research suggests maybe
that shouldn’t be the case. (upbeat music) In today’s digital workplace, where face-to-face communication
is less and less common, using emojis can actually
help us communicate more effectively, especially when it comes to conveying tone and emotion. That’s because looking at emojis
actually triggers activity in the same parts of our brains that light up when we
see real human faces. So when you send someone
a winky face emoji, somewhere deep in their
brain, the same neurons are firing as if you were standing in front of them winking. And so on and so on. Using emojis at work might
not be so unprofessional, after all. In fact, they could help improve mood, reduce ambiguity, and foster teamwork. So when someone sends you an email with a happy face at the end of it, don’t assume they’re
being passive-aggressive, just picture them smiling.

FIDO Alliance and the future of passwords

March 5, 2020 | Articles | No Comments


hey everyone welcome back to today in
tech I’m Julia Beauchamp I’m here with computer world executive editor Ken
Mingis as well as computer world senior reporter Lucas Mearian today we’re
talking the future of passwords so stick around all right Lucas thank you so much for
joining us today so we’re talking future of passwords we all we all know and love
passwords perhaps we know and love them I mean perhaps you know in tolerate them
but they are they are useful yeah one may even say necessary but there’s
obvious password protocols that we all know we’re not supposed to use the same
password for everything your password shouldn’t be password or one two three
four yeah yeah that’s why I live in large but let’s talk a little about what
the phyto Alliance is and why Apple has been the most recent company to join it
so tell us a little bit about that it’s a fast online identity Alliance and
basically what they’re doing is trying to eliminate passwords all together by
using two-factor authentication and we all probably have dealt with two-factor
authentication in one form or another in our lives so take a cell phone that our
smartphone for example you’re logging into your bank account and the bank
account server challenges you to give a biometric code such as a fingerprint
scan or facial recognition or it might even send you requests for a pin and it
might send you that information via a message or an email and then you have to
type that pin in so that’s the second factor authentication so recognises the
device you’re using that’s one and then second one is to challenge the the
public-private key challenge to that device that you didn’t have to answer
either be a biometric reader or by entering a payment is this a situation
Lucas and this is what it seems like to me where technology has finally caught
up in a way that with like facial scans or thumbprint fingerprint scans which
are theoretically more inherently secure than just a memorized code now that
we’ve got that especially on mobile devices that you know this is where why
we’re going into a different direction with passwords absolutely I mean
basically you become the password your face that’s exactly it
I mean unless you’re talking about a pin and that’s we’ve had that capability for
a long time where they can where server can send you a challenge by offering you
a PIN number that you have to enter in my random PIN number
but it’s it has to do with as I said before public/private key encryption and
but you’re right you’re correct and as far as being able to use a biometric
scanner to do this we haven’t had that in the past okay so it’s technology’s
catching up and basically being able to advance where passwords are going
exactly and and I think we were talking yesterday
Verizon recently came out with their mobile security report and there’s some
pretty startling statistic I was really surprised yet that story is online right
now in computer world if you want to take a look at it this is the third
Verizon mobile security index right study I got that right so what-what were
you finding there what did they find oh one of the things is that 81% of all
security vulnerabilities all secure hacks are related to either insecure
passwords poor passwords or stolen passwords well either through phishing
attacks or whatnot so passwords really are a vulnerable method of securing a
device that’s what that’s what phyto was trying to get rid of and there are a lot
of it there’s a lot of industry support behind that I’ve got a list of members
that go from Amazon Facebook Google Intel Microsoft VMware and then you have
financial service companies like Amex and MasterCard and PayPal and Visa and
they’re all joining this industry standards group in order to improve
security and actually make it a lot easier for you to log into their
websites and applications well easier and more secure yeah cuz I was just
about to say the argument for multi-factor is that you know you have
these perhaps inherently insecure passwords or your passwords exposed in a
massive data breach and if you have multi-factor enabled you have if even if
someone has your login information they still have to have that code that’s text
achior emailed to you but that can sometimes be a little clunky so how is
the federal Alliance aiming to sort of make it more seamless to have
multi-factor authentication well one example I gave you was just that the
fingerprint of course yeah so for example when I log into my bank first
I’ve already registered and that’s one of the prerequisites of using this
authentication method ocation method is to
first login to I’m sorry first register with a site or service and then once
you’re registered that’s when it can start happening that’s when it
recognizes the device that you’ve used to register and the information you’ve
given it to register that device so when now a lot when I login to my bank my
bache automatically my mobile device for example I bring up the application the
bank application on my phone and it immediately asks me to scan my
fingerprint so first it recognizes the device that I’m using and then secondly
recognizes I’m the owner of that device and the bank account holder through that
fingerprint now I’m logged into my bank that’s much more simple than happy
having go in there and type in my username and my password and it’s more
secure because it’s covered by encryption right then you don’t have to
go back figure out what the code that texted you was exactly yeah
it’s interesting too one of the things that you’ve had written about it when
when this Apple Fido tie-up first came out was that there’s this whole movement
to also try to build this into browsers I think it’s the web authentication API
yeah yeah exactly so it’s already supported two different degrees by
Google Chrome Firefox and Microsoft’s edge right so it we are going to be
seeing this with browsers as well to login so the idea being that if you try
to log into a site on a desktop using a browser the browser will also do the
same sort of thing where it’s its first checking to make sure that this this
device this computer laptop whatever is registered and then once it does it can
kick off that sort of extra layer of security when you’re trying to login
whether it’s a you know a text or some sort of message or some sort of way of
proving your you yes exactly okay yeah okay got it and you can imagine how this
might improve security for all sorts of ways I’m not saying that it will but
there are possibilities to improve security by because now it knows who is
logging into that site mm-hmm because you’ve pre registered so why now what
was the draw for Apple to join the Fighter Alliance now like you said
there’s so many other enterprises that have been a part of it for years so what
was the what was the motivation here Apple isn’t a big joiner they are but
always late they never joined first for everybody else to join very slow
they like to do their own protocols you know are you lightning actually that’s
probably Intel is emitter they adopted it or I mean a lightning connector yeah Intel invent stuff it’s adopted by one
company but yeah it’s it’s but but that’s a good example of you know you’re
not gonna see the lightning connector on all the devices they like to use their
own protocols so they’re there late in the process and it’s still unusual for
them because they’re not big multi vendor standard consortium joiners but I
think that they saw the groundswell behind this one and you know I think
honestly they they believe it’s a good standard for authentication any sense
whether or not you know obviously the idea of security and mobile devices
comes up a lot when you incorporate in corporate land when you’re trying to
manage all these devices is there any sense and this may be beyond what you’ve
reported on so far but I’m just curious if you know that something like you know
the multi-factor authentication that we’re seeing roll out is going to lead
to more secure devices and work making them easier to basically provision and
manage yeah that’s actually another trend that’s going on I’ve written about
Universal and probably the endpoint management so Yammer um that basically
manages all your endpoints so from laptops and desktops to mobile devices
and what tablets whatever and companies like MobileIron are now incorporating
the same security they had for desktops into the UM software for all endpoints
so I think eventually yeah you’re going to see this for corporate use as well to
secure worker devices okay and it’s it’s kind of brilliant
I mean it’s it’s a great way of doing it because each Corporation can have its
own public private key authentication so basically only people would be able to
access services that that company would be employees who have been already
vetted basically exactly and it’s an open standard so developers
can can use can can modify it for whatever uses they need okay this no we
were talking you know before we went on the air about the idea of I was asking
how does this relate to zero trust and what is zero trust I mean I know that’s
not exactly a specific two passwords but it is about security and levels of
security could you just talk for a second about what zero trust is and how
that figure figures into this sure so zero trust basically means to put a very
high level let’s say that I’m an authorized worker who’s authorized to
login to a corporate system let’s say it’s a database but while I’m in that
database I start to do something that’s outside the security parameters like I
want to copy and paste information in that database and then email it to
somebody and that’s not something I’m supposed to probably no no no no what 0
trust does is it uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to recognize
my behavior and then either warn me or completely shut me down so log me right
out of that site so it actually watches you as you’re logged in to make sure
that you’re not doing things that outside the perimeter parameters of that
company security protocols ok so zero trust basically it’s sort of
an adjunct to them once you’re in and you’ve been authenticated and prove that
you’re you that’s a next layer above it that’s AI ml sort of power to watch what
you’re doing exactly sort of wall you off from things and either stop you or
warn you if you try to do something it doesn’t think you should be allowed to
just like the soup Cote okay so everybody has can get the soup but you
know if you don’t if you don’t meet those days you know what’s the right way
no soup for you no data for you so transitioning a little bit back to sort
of these security keys obviously the like you said Lucas the biometric keys
are pretty common and commonplace for anyone like you said with a bank account
we’re all probably kind of used to them but I’m a little more interested in to
learn about how enterprises are going to implement this I mean not all physical
laptop devices here’s mine off camera has a biometric ability so what are some
other ways that they can implement security keys so we did talk about the
pin already so a challenge okay the other one is they’ve got this
cool little USB dongle companies are third parties are creating these dongles
that you can plug into a USB port and press a little button and it gives it
offers up the private key to the public key challenge to log you in okay the
other cool thing about the dongle is that if you lose your password it can
help you recover it by doing the same by plugging into the USB port pushing a
little button and authenticating you mmm-hmm that’s the other thing so I want
to know how far away are we from this being a completely common place and be
from never having to type in another password right now there it’s it’s an
option on a lot of these sites so but I think it will gain traction over the
next two to three years and I’m hoping you know over the next one to five years
we won’t ever have to use passwords well it is interesting you know when you
think about mobile devices in particular with like face ID there are a lot of
sites now that because I’m logged in on my phone you know the first thing it
does when I go to login is does a face scan yeah so clearly you know and I have
a feeling as a lot of these things sort of emerge from from you know users at
home who are bringing their devices in mobile devices is where it’s gonna start
before it spreads yeah that’s a good point yeah yeah and I really love it I
mean from my bank account I immediately signed up for it and it makes it so much
easier it’s moving you’re on a mobile device you don’t want to have I hate
first of all I don’t know how I hate to save Millennials but I’m gonna say
Millennials okay boomer it’s true okay here we go okay but we type so fast but
I’m sitting there I’m a picker ww1w my name and password into a mobile device
in order to login on my bank account so it’s so nice to just be able to do a
quick thumb scan and okay grams and begin I know for the record as a
millennial yes I type fast but also I enjoy face ID oh yes I think I might
almost be a genzou so there you go any other thoughts before we let you go
about the future of passwords where we’re going I just I think this is a
really smart technology and I understand why all of these kind of industry
bellwether companies are joining it makes a lot of sense especially in light
of some of them from we just saw the Verizon mobile security
threat report it’s shocking I mean we one of the things in the report was that
I think was four out of ten companies active resistant yeah he had a sacrifice
security for things like making sure they achieve revenue to save some money
yeah save some and save some time and yeah and because it’s complex security
can be complex yeah so obviously more security is gonna be a good thing
especially something that’s simple to use you know you have to make it easy to
use or people aren’t going to use it that’s all for me yeah okay well quick
quick programming note Lucas is gonna be sliding over to the IDC side of the
company very shortly so the next time we have him on it’ll be a research analyst
studying storage infrastructure saw your first look at the one I have you know
people chided me when I first started coming and uh you got the storage beat
but you know what I really it storages is evolving faster than processors
that’s good it always has and I so I think that’s more interesting and not
more interesting I shouldn’t say it but just as interesting to you it’s more
interest it is it’s more interesting to me and so I’ve always loved storage good
ok so we will be having Lucas back at some point to talk about what’s coming
in storage obviously there’s a lot going on yes so for now Lucas thanks for being
here juliette thanks for being here yeah a
quick reminder if you’re watching us on the youtube channel please subscribe to
the channel so you can follow along with the different episodes and see what’s
coming up for now I think that’ll do it thanks for watching
