(Singularity Now is a nonfiction news mash-up covering advances in artificial intelligence and other high technologies building to the singularity. This edition summarizes more than 225 articles [300+ citations]).<br /><br />Developments in high technology are advancing at a blistering rate that far outpaces anybody’s ability to fully assimilate it all into a comprehensive picture. Such a picture is not what you will find in these pages. Instead, this book series compiles summaries of news articles, columns and blogs on the technologies that will ultimately birth the singularity: artificial intelligence (AI) and autonomous machines; and, perhaps to a lesser extent, augmented reality and biotechnology. The methodology of article selection and compilation is not scientific, and the sample size is not statistically significant. Nonetheless, almost daily throughout the month, top AI and high tech stories are selected, condensed and encapsulated for clarity and brevity. The result is a running log of nugget paragraph entries that reflect the gist of the biggest AI stories to hit the net in the last month. <br /><br />The intent of this book series is not to present the current state of the technology in the public sphere, but to highlight the public discussion centered on it, to present a sampler platter of the innovations being unveiled daily, and to reveal the full extent to which these technologies are already entrenched in the gears of our civilization. <br /><br />This month’s edition features the stories on the latest greatest claims by the tech titans and the headlines that parrot them, to include an astounding pilotless air taxi, image recognition for cancer detection, police and surveillance film cataloging software that enables easy searches and sharing, and sex robots that simulate teenage Barbies and that can be brought to climax. It also hones in on the discussions of the downside to such innovations, from the risk of automated totalitarian government, to our growing dependence on technology for almost everything, increasing our need for constant guidance and enfeebling our sense of autonomy. The mainstream media and tech company wonks often downplay the risks and champion the false dichotomy that one is either a tech advocate, and thus a fan of the Silicon Valley hotshots, or a luddite, and thus doomed to be abandoned by your increasingly space age culture, which by the way is subject to viruses, hacks, leaks, glitches and cascading failures that can take down servers, strand fliers, close stock markets, and spoil entertainment events. Increasingly, the geeky prophecy of technological salvation is married to the leftist vision of salvation from government, as we see the rise of so-called smart city technology, biometric identification and authentication, RFID microchip and tracking technology, killer nanobots and autonomous weapons systems.

Companies big and small are waking up and realizing at the very top levels that cybersecurity is no longer an issue that can be relegated to the IT department, or left to quarterly board meetings. Cyber risks represent major threats to your organization and as such require a high level of engagement by top leadership and board directors. There are very few other categories of risks that can, overnight, freeze your business dead in its tracks, decimate your financial resources, ruin your corporate reputation or even take it completely offline.<br /><br />In this book, we take a non-nonsense approach to the problem of understanding, managing, mitigating cybersecurity risk, and improving cybersecurity corporate governance. Our approach is to provide concise, mission critical, and actionable information for directors, officers, general counsel, and C-Suite executives. Given recent advanced, stealthy cyber threats, like APT 28 and APT 29, a/k/a Fancy Bear and Cozy Bear, our primer on artificial intelligence, machine learning and cognitive computing cyber defense solutions provides unparalleled knowledge on how these solutions work, and why you need them for your company today.
