IDG Contributor Network: Google Home can now recognize voices. What does...

Google has added support for up to six users to its virtual assistant device, Google Home.

That’s a huge leap in the world of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
It solves many problems related to voice-activated virtual assistants, while also creating some serious privacy concerns.I have three Gmail users in my house who all access the same Google Home device, which is linked to my account.
It’s used for playing music, watching videos through Nvidia Shield, helping with recipes, asking questions, checking appointments, and other such tasks.Here’s the problem: I hate it. My Google search history and YouTube playlists are all messed up.
It’s full of queries by my wife, guests, kids, and our au pair. My private appointments are accessible to anyone who can ask for them.

Anyone can activate my Google Home device by yelling from outside the window and taking control of connected devices like oven, lights, and door lock (I was smart enough to not install smart locks). Worst of all, Google is not learning anything about me as it’s being used by everyone.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Hackers Target Sundance Film Festival

Local and online box offices were temporarily knocked offline Saturday.

America's largest independent film festival became the target of a cyber attack over the weekend.

The Sundance Film Festival kicked off Friday in Park City, Utah, with movie premieres, midnight showings, and a network failure.

"Sundance Film Festival has been subject to a cyberattack, causing network outages that have shut down our box office," a spokesman told Variety, adding that "all screenings will still take place as planned."

The official Twitter account on Saturday promised that "our team is working hard to get our systems back up [as soon as possible]." Within an hour, the Salt Lake City and Gateway box offices were "back up and running," and online ticketing for future shows was quickly restored.

"Our artist's [sic] voices will be heard and the show will go on," the organizers tweeted.

The hack, according to Variety, occurred around noon MT (2 p.m. ET)—shortly after comedian Chelsea Handler led a Women's March in Park City in protest of Donald Trump. It was also the same day as several big premieres, including films about war, terrorism, Chinese dissonance, doping in sports, and race and class in America.

It remains unclear whether the incidents were related, or how many Festival guests were affected by the box office interruptions. The Sundance Institute did not immediately respond to PCMag's request for comment.

This month's showcase includes the premiere of Dear Angelica, the first animated experience created entirely in virtual reality, according to Oculus, whose in-house Story Studio produced the movie—available for Rift owners to download from the Oculus app store.
