Hundreds of thousands of interrelated sensors spread across the U.S. capture data on electric current, voltage, and other critical information in real time, often taking multiple recordings per second. Because the machine-learning model they developed does not require annotated data on power grid anomalies for training, it would be easier to apply in real-world situations where high-quality, labeled datasets are often hard to come by. We show that we can automate this process and also learn patterns from the data using advanced machine-learning techniques,” says senior author Jie Chen, a research staff member and manager of the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab.
Cybersecurity stocks were a rare bright spot Thursday as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine sent major indexes down. The U.S. attributed the first attack to Russia, which the country denied, and said the second one was consistent with what it would expect from Russia. Amid the rising anxiety of an escalation in the conflict, shares of the following cybersecurity companies jumped: Telos, up more than 20%; Palo Alto Networks, up 13%; CrowdStrike, up 13%; and Mandiant up 12%.
The Dutch military has tested the system during the recent year and decided to purchase it and use the systems immediately, mainly for C-UAS purposes, Smart Shooter said in a statement. The Netherlands will acquire the Smash AD system, building on previous orders from Smart Shooter. Sharone Aloni, the vice president of research and development at the company, said the system is part of the wider family of Smart Shooter solutions, with some additional enhancements made for counter-drone capabilities. Smart Shooter did not provide a contract value, and the Dutch government did not respond to an inquiry by Defense News by press time.
According to a Bloomberg report, the videos were actually gameplay of military simulation game ARMA 3. Bloomberg reported that more than 90 videos were shared a total exceeding 25,000 times before being delisted from the platform. Top livestreams on the platform, some of which were live as long as six hours, also had “Breaking News” banners and claimed the footage had been reported by journalists, despite being labeled as ARMA 3 streams.
Facebook owner Meta Platforms Inc has set up a special operations center to monitor the conflict in Ukraine, and it launched a feature so users in the country can lock their social media profiles for security, a company official said in Twitter posts on Thursday. With one click, users in Ukraine can lock their profile to prevent users who are not their friends from downloading or sharing their profile picture, or seeing posts on their timeline, Nathaniel Gleicher, Facebook’s head of security policy, said on Twitter.
