Can Scientists 'Upload Knowledge' Directly into your Brain to Teach New Skills?

Can Scientists 'Upload Knowledge' Directly into your Brain to Teach New Skills?

Mar 03, 2016
Imagine the world where you do not have to make any efforts to learn new skills or knowledge. Just like new programs are uploaded to a Robot to teach them new skills, What if new skills are uploaded to your brain to make you learn, say, playing Guitar, a whole language like French or German or anything else you wish? Do you want a technique, if exists, to make this possible? Of course, YES! Who would not? Now, multiple media channels are reporting that a team of researchers from HRL Laboratories in California has developed a new technology that could be used to feed any skill into the human brain without much effort. But, Is it possible in reality? Let's have a look at what media is reporting and what scientists have actually discovered. Here's what Media is Reporting: Media is reporting that researchers have found a way to "upload knowledge to your brain." Researchers claimed to have developed a simulator that can feed data dire

Brains are more powerful than computers. So why not build a computer from Brain?  In fact, Multiple Brains as per sayings, " Two heads are better than one. " Scientists at Duke University have done exactly that. They have successfully developed the first instance of a Brain-machine interface that employs multiple brains at once to operate a single machine. "Organic Computers" – Made from Brains of Rats and Monkeys Scientists were able to interconnect the brains of four rats to create a " Brainet " that is capable of accomplishing computational tasks better than the tasks performed by any one of the rats. In the recent paper published in the journal Scientific Reports, the neurobiologist leading the research, Miguel Nicolelis says: " Recently, we proposed that 'Brainets,' i.e. networks formed by multiple animal brains, cooperating and exchanging information in real time through direct brain-to-brain interfaces, could
SaaS Compliance through the NIST Cybersecurity Framework

SaaS Compliance through the NIST Cybersecurity Framework

Feb 20, 2024Cybersecurity Framework / SaaS Security
The US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) cybersecurity framework is one of the world's most important guidelines for securing networks. It can be applied to any number of applications, including SaaS.  One of the challenges facing those tasked with securing SaaS applications is the different settings found in each application. It makes it difficult to develop a configuration policy that will apply to an HR app that manages employees, a marketing app that manages content, and an R&D app that manages software versions, all while aligning with NIST compliance standards.  However, there are several settings that can be applied to nearly every app in the SaaS stack. In this article, we'll explore some universal configurations, explain why they are important, and guide you in setting them in a way that improves your SaaS apps' security posture.  Start with Admins Role-based access control (RBAC) is a key to NIST adherence and should be applied to every SaaS a
