  • Cryptomining malware

    Cryptomining malware

    Cryptomining malware, also called cryptocurrency mining malware or simply cryptojacking, is a relatively new term that refers to software programs and malware components developed to take over a computer's resources and use them for cryptocurrency mining without a user's explicit permission. Unauthorized cryptomining is seeing exponential growth, since it actually doesn’t require significant technical skills and cyber criminals have increasingly turned to cryptomining malware as a way to harness the processing power of large numbers of computers, smartphones and other electronic devices to help them generate revenue from cryptocurrency mining. Ad blocking firm AdGuard, for instance, estimates that more than 500 million users are mining cryptocurrencies on their devices without realizing it. These users either get infected by a cryptomining malware program or visit websites that stealthily run cryptomining software in the background without the user's consent.

  • The hyper-intelligent workforce and the future of work

    The hyper-intelligent workforce and the future of work

    Asking which industries are going to be most impacted by Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the coming years and decades, is much like asking someone in the 80s which industries are going to be most impacted by computer chips and computer software. In 1980s, it was possible to see that computers were going to revolutionize retail and medicine, but not to forecast the advent of Amazon or Taobao. Prediction of AI’s future influence is likely even harder than was the case for earlier technologies, due to the exponential nature of change in an era of unprecedented connectivity.
