OSUT

De ce ai intrat în OSUT ?

M-am inscris in OSUT in primul pentru ca voiam sa vad ce sentiment iti da apartenenta la o organizatie studenteasca. Motivatia secundara a venit din convingerea ca voluntariatul este o actiune importanta atat pentru individ cat si pentru societate. Am descoperit ca OSUT imi ofera sansa de a capata experienta in proiecte importante (e.g. ITFest, StudentFest) si acest lucru constituie un argument solid in vederea continuarii activitatii alaturi de organizatie.

 

Ce ai facut pana acum in organizatie ?

Concret, activitatea mea in cadrul organizatie s-a rezumat la actualizarea orarelor; Verificarea si actualizarea paginilor siteului organizatiei; Cautarea si prezentarea catorva idei, teme si workshopuri pentru ITFest; Participarea la trainingul despre wordpress; Efectuarea taskului primit de la departamentul de IT (blog pe platforma wordpress). Nu in ultimul rand, am participat la OSUT AG si la sedintele departamentului in care m-am inscris.

 

Ce vrei sa faci in continuare in OSUT ?

Sunt membru al organizatie de o perioada relativ scurta astfel ca actiunile mele nu sunt foarte insemnate. Eu sper ca conteze si pe viitor sa am ocazia sa ma implic in cateva proiecte de anvergura care sa ajute OSUT si Universitatea de Vest sa urce pe o treapta superioara celei actuale.

The NSA is building a quantum computer to crack almost every kind of encryption

New documents leaked by Edward Snowden reveal two NSA programs that seek to build a “useful quantum computer” that can break all known forms of classical encryption. Such a quantum computer would obviously give the NSA unprecedented access to encrypted communications, but a working quantum computer is also vital for defensive purposes: If someone else gets their hands on a quantum computer first, then it is the US government that will suddenly have all of its encrypted communications cracked wide open.

According to the documents leaked by Snowden and published by The Washington Post, there are at least two programs that deal with quantum computers and their use in breaking classical encryption — “Penetrating Hard Targets” and “Owning the Net.” The first program, Penetrating Hard Targets, is funded to the tune of $79.7 million and includes efforts to build “a cryptologically useful quantum computer” that can “sustain and enhance research operations at NSA/CSS Washington locations, including the Laboratory for Physical Sciences facility in College Park, MD.” The second program, Owning the Net, deals with developing new methods of intercepting communications, including the use of quantum computers to break encryption.

EmoSpark is an Android-powered AI cube that reacts to your mood

People tend to be a little creeped out by a machine pretending to be human, as evidenced by the almost universal uncanny valley response to humanoid robots. However, that doesn’t mean it is a bad idea for technology to be a little more human in the way it responds to us. The EmoSpark is an attempt to make artificial intelligence more friendly by packing the AI into a small cube that can recognize and react to your emotional state.

The EmoSpark console is only 3.5-inches on a side and fits in the palm of your hand. It is being designed by inventor Patrick Rosenthal who wants to use the EmoSpark to recognize not only people, but their emotions in real time. The cube does this with traditional face-tracking technology and a content analysis engine developed by Rosenthal. Theoretically, by glancing at you, the EmoSpark will be capable of differentiating between basic human emotions.

Unhackable System Claimed: Could It Be True?

A Hungarian company is trying to capitalize on fears of big government spy programs by promising NSA-proof data storage, and challenging anyone to break inside their systems or website. But some experts say tech firm Tresorit’s $25,000 “hacker challenge” is just a public relations gambit that doesn’t prove much.

The firm, founded in 2011 by graduates of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, says it offers secure cloud data and client-encrypted data. That means that it gives encryption keys to clients who want to store files and other kinds of data so customers do the encryption rather than trusting the firm itself to protect it, says Tresorit spokesman Szabolcs Nagy. Those keys can then be shared with others.

First Transparent Tablet Lets You Touch From Both Sides

Transparent tablets may sound like something straight from science fiction, but it may not be long before translucent slates hit the market. Grippity claims to be the world’s first see-through tablet to come with two-sided touch controls.

The recently launched Kickstarter campaign promises to deliver the slate by next fall. Grippity features a semi-transparent 7-inch 800 x 480 display, and both the front and rear panels support capacitive multi-touch input. Running on a Cortex A8 processor and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, you’ll find 4GB of storage space with an SD card slot that adds up to 32GB of extra room. Grippity supports both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and also comes with IR blaster that allows it to function as a remote control.

Super-material could create robot muscles with 1000x human strength

When you flex a muscle in your arm, it’s not the muscle that’s shrinking, but the cells that comprise it. Each cell lining the muscle’s length has its own limited contractile ability, one driven by tiny motor and ratchet proteins that crumple up a cell and refuse to let it relax. Rather than being a single continuous muscular action, your bicep contracts as a result of millions of tiny, discreet contractions all working in concert. That being the case, it’s always been something of a misnomer to refer to robot muscles as muscles, per-se — despite being visually similar, they are really just servos, or hydraulic pumps, or whatever else. This week marks the first proof of concept for an attempt to change that, to make usefully strong artificial muscles that actually work like muscles — with all the advantages and disadvantages that come with it.
