As computers have become more sophisticated, researchers have increasingly asked whether or not machines have the capability for creativity.

“Who watches the watchers?” Wright asked. “[This is] insidious … you could alter data, change things. How could you ever get back to the point … [where people can] trust the information [they] have in there?”

As Amazon has made abundantly clear, it’s never been content to limit itself to any one identity. Its primary business, online retail, is a booming success with customers. But offline retailers from Barnes & Noble to Bed Bath & Beyond to Sears are floundering, and Amazon may see an opportunity. It reinvented shopping with its online store. Why not do the same offline? Perhaps that humble vending machine is where that starts.
“That’s one thing we’ve learned already on this trip,” Kuryan says. “We need to have at least one person not going anywhere.”
Finally, it was back onto a truck for a custom drive all through the park. There are regular truck tours running through all the time, but ours could pull over and stop to take pictures and talk about the animals, and could take some special roads not available to the other trucks.

That code is now getting a revamp, set to go live sometime later this year, designed to both strengthen its encryption and to let administrators easily create fully secret darknet sites that can only be discovered by those who know a long string of unguessable characters. And those software tweaks, says Tor Project co-founder Nick Mathewson, could not only allow tighter privacy on the darknet, but also help serve as the basis for a new generation of encryption applications.

As increasingly powerful DDoS attacks wallop corporate networks, enterprise DDoS defense has become a major priority in nearly every industry. And Cloudflare says that it can customize Spectrum to meet customers’ specifications by adding tailored VPNs or other connection channels, or even establishing physical, fiber-optic links with clients to manage their defense. But other DDoS defense companies are years—and millions of dollars in investment—ahead on using physical connections for more robust DDoS protection.
All of those tactics are more than theoretical. Nikiforakis presented the Stony Brook study at the Federal Trade Commission last year, and the FTC is actively taking on the scammers. The commission sued one Florida call center, extracting a $10 million ruling in December. “Before you can stop these scams, you have to really understand how they work,” says Lorrie Cranor, who was resident technologist at the FTC at the time of Nikiforakis’ visit. “This research really maps that out nicely.”
Scalf adds that the latest version of Scout “is laying a foundation for some really cool things coming in the auto space.” The company has been clear about wanting to make navigation more of a social experience, and it’s doing this by integrating the app with its Scout.me Beta website, which shows hot spots and happenings in a given area. “Users can pull up their location and see what’s nearby, share it with friends and use our navigation products to search and discover what’s going on around them. It’s more of an ecosystem around the app. You’ll see us layer on more and more of the experience.”
Wood has been challenging the bounds of traditional cartography for decades. “The scale, the legend, all that stuff, they’re authority trappings, they’re like badges on a cop. They say, ‘I am a serious cartographic document and you are to take me seriously,” Wood says in the film. “That’s a bunch of crap, and I wanted to get rid of it.”
