Utilizing Media: A Response to Deepfakes

  Of the ACM (the Association for Computing Machinery), a magazine called Communication of the ACM's edition releases 1 month before its stated release month. In the latest edition, regarding March 2021, of Communications of the ACM , Column Editor, Susan J. Winter wrote Computing Ethics: What To Do About Deepfakes . Regarding Winter’s desire to halt or hinder illegal or unethical deepfakes, a video technology like wearing a full body masking suit, Winter wrote, “Here are three areas where technical experts can make positive contributions to the development of synthetic media technologies: education and media literacy, subject defense, and verification” (Winter, March, 2021). Winter was saying actions such as teaching and having disruptive technology knowledge, researching professionally, and proving concepts are parts of deepfake experts’ calculus. But this much work specializes such that entry level, junior, work will probably be offered to overqualified professionals. Technic

Stakeholder Contexts and Industry Standards: ISO/IEC 38500 IT Governance, but then an IT Compliance Framework


ISO / IEC 38500 IT Governance ^ Compliance


In information technology, standards for administration and enforcement of general applications are related to the International Organization for Standardization, or ISO, and the International Electrotechnical Commission, or IEC. The ISO/IEC 38500 IT governance and compliance framework is such a standard. According to A. L. Holt (2013), directors and senior officers understanding their responsibility for governing information technology systems addresses three issues: procured system integration, responding to legislative requirements for storing personal data, and documentation (Part A, Sec. 3). 

SMEs Linked to Measurable Successful Outcomes

With regard to small and medium-sized enterprises, or SMEs, Olaitan Olutoyin and Stephen Flowerday suggested that the IT governance structure and the operational governance processes are linked to measurable successful outcomes by three key pillars (2016). Olutoyin and Flowerday (2016) said that the three key pillars mentioned technology context of the enterprise, organizational context, and environmental context.

A O (n^2) Rate of Dangerous Change: Converting Target and Legacy Systems

On tangential rhetoric, a possible derivation of the collaborative research comments by Olutoyin and Flowerday is that the narrative of stakeholder involvement related to information technology governance frameworks and networking technology (link) implementations is quantifiable. In exposition, Satyam Tyagi (2016) reflecting that compromising a single low privilege user resulting in the entire Target enterprise compromised indicates Target not understanding legislative requirements for storage data involving integrating more secure systems and documentation for the legacy systems. Therefore, the worst-case is defending each low privilege user. The even worse case that should be replaced is probably a criminal hacker, a cracker, gaining access to any a parallelized system looping with the first loop getting the maximum user accounts then the inner loop injecting the malware used in the hack Tyagi reported in 2016: this is a worse case of n^2. Target’s situation contains similarity to Israel before Christ’s arrival regarding Achan (NIV, Jos 7:13). In response, Target would benefit from demarcating legacy systems that do not enable industry-standard security integrations (link).

In response to the Institute of Industrial Science, the University of Tokyo’s Circular Reasoning: Spiral Circuits for More Efficient AI

Circular Reasoning On June 14, 2020, the IIS (Institute of Industrial Science) at the UTokyo (University of Tokyo) wrote  Circular Reasoning: Spiraling Circuits for More Efficient AI ; but a Press Release from this institute is giving a synopsis on this topic. On this press release, the IIS wrote, “Researchers from the Institute of Industrial Science at the University of Tokyo designed and built specialized computer hardware consisting of stacks of memory modules arranged in a 3D-spiral for artificial intelligence (AI) applications” (IIS, June 14, 2020). The IIS continued on, saying this research is allowing a singular way work can be done regarding the next generation energy efficient AI devices (Here is a current generation, but energy efficient, AI device, Android Pie: link ) shall be implemented into production.             The Fundamentals of Machine Learning                On this press release, the IIS is explaining the fundamentals of ML (Machine Learning). The IIS wrote, “Mach

IS the Future of AI “Women?”

Interdisciplinary Campus Culture On April 14, 2020, Katy Rank Lev wrote the Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) news article The Future of AI is Female . Since artificial intelligence’s (AI) initial measurement, wrote Lev, CMU built AI. Lev wrote that each of the colleges CMU is representing contribute to make AI a new field, describing this AI as a frontier, humanity can democratize: from healthcare, the eventual goal area is education. In a rush, Lev cut the conversation short, and Lev mentioned CMU’s interdisciplinary campus culture as the source of the effective AI women, but this is despite women historically not represented as scientists, technologists, and engineers, and math (STEM), worldwide. But CMU is spotlighting undergraduate students and highly honored faculty members, and Lev is including these women because she agrees with the Women in Tech movement as far as the East is from the West: CMU is the best Computer Science University with AI, and this is IT at this point in

Drone Uses AI and 11,500 Crashes to Learn How to Fly

Learning to Fly by Crashing On 10 May, 2017, Evan Ackerman wrote the IEEE (Institute for Electricians and Electrical Engineers) SPECTRUM article Drone Uses AI and 11,500 Crashes to Learn How to Fly. In Ackerman’s article, Ackerman used a block quote by Carnegie Mellon University roboticists Dhiraj Gandhi, Lerrel Pinto; and Abhinav Gupta, the writers of a paper, “Learning to Fly by Crashing” (Gandhi, et. al., 27 Apr 2017). From Ackerman’s block quote from Gandhi, et. al., “[T]he gap between simulation and real world remains large especially for perception problems” (Gandhi, et. al.). Ackerman contrasted known motion from unconfirmed motion without identifying the pre-existing condition called Schrödinger’s cat in the case that the crashes shall eventually happen without outside help: a continuing crash failure, and in security terms this is interned as a false positive because this helps Schrödinger’s cat stay alive or rest buried in the soil. In this case, this drone detects these t
