This time of year is an ideal hunting ground for hackers, phishers and malware spreaders; disguising their attacks as offers too good to refuse, a concerned security message from your bank requiring urgent attention, a special rate discount from your credit card service, and more.

As in previous quarters, spammers were quick to react to high-profile events and adapted their fraudulent emails to the news agenda.

The power of machine learning comes at a price. Once you have the skills, the toolkit, the hardware, and the data, there is still the complexity involved in creating and fine-tuning a machine learning model.But if the whole point of machine learning is to automate tasks that previously required a human being at the helm, wouldnrsquo;t it be possible to use machine learning to take some of the drudgework out of machine learning itself?[ Review: TensorFlow, Spark MLlib, Scikit-learn, MXNet, Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit, and Caffe machine learning and deep learning frameworks. | Roundup: 13 frameworks for mastering machine learning. | Cut to the key news and issues in cutting-edge enterprise technology with the InfoWorld Daily newsletter. ]Short answer: a qualified yes.

A collection of techniques, under the general banner of “automated machine learning,” or AML, can reduce the work needed to prepare a model and refine it incrementally to improve its accuracy.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

The Open Container Initiative, a consortium founded to develop open standards around Docker-style containers across platforms, has delivered 1.0 milestones for two crucial specifications under its banner.The new standards aren't likely to affect the way developers work with containers.

The real impact is likely to be felt by commercial producers of container-related products, especially if they are angling to have OCI certification applied to what they produce.[ 9 lies programmers tell themselves. | 9 bad programming habits we secretly love. ]OCI's newly finalized standards cover two key components of the container ecosystem -- the image format for containers, and the runtime specification.

The OCI Image Format, as the first is formally called, is easy enough to grasp.
It describes the way a container image is laid out internally and what its various components are.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

The consequences are dire: Fewer Americans will have access to high-speed internet, there will be fewer jobs, less competition, and declining test scores—no wait, he failed to mention that last one.

This means that the threats that are relevant for them can also be relevant for medical systems.
