Artificial intelligence bias is a danger to many systems we are growing dependent upon. A tool is only as useful as the craftsman wielding it. In a more modern sense, our algorithms are only as good as the programmers who wrote the code, and the database they can pull from. Think about the data that you feed your HR Information System. If bad data goes in, then what comes out?

This is critical to consider when evaluating whether or not we can trust an Artificial Intelligence tool. Some systems are better built than others, and some aren’t worth your trust because they can’t be relied upon.

Cryptojacking 101

Cryptojacking is a website or app taking over your device and using its excess resources to mine cryptocurrency. There are examples of this happening right now in the wild (both with and without the “victim’s” consent or knowledge). Currently, this is most commonly happening via JavaScript code running in websites which are able to discretely tap into the user’s excess computing power to mine Monero. The net effect is that the user’s computer uses lots of excess power, costing them money and draining their battery quickly if they are on a laptop, all while making the distributor of the code a small amount of digital currency. If the perpetrator can distribute the code to enough users, it is possible that they could make a significant sum over time.
