CTOvision Tech News 13 Feb 2018

News over the past week underscored the very interesting dynamics of cryptocurrencies and artificial intelligence. One of the great tech champions from Silicon Valley recently summed this dynamic up very well. Peter Thiel said it this way: "Crypto is decentralizing, AI is centralizing. Or, if you want to frame it more ideologically, crypto is libertarian and AI is communist."  Ha! Very succinctly put.

Thiel was on stage in an interaction with Reid Hoffman, another great tech creator/champion, at a Stanford University event. We provide the full video below.

Like every week, cyber crime and digital abuse is in the headlines. This includes traditional breaches but also attacks vs crytpocurrencies. The bad guys are skating to where the puck is.

Where is the puck going next? Cloud Computing, AI, Mobilty, Robotics, Analytics, Big Data, IoT of course. And bad guys are all over those megatrends too. The good guys are too, and the news has plenty of insight and context into how progress is being made against threats in those fields.
