Kaspersky Lab to transfer its’ customer data to Zurich by 2019

The transfer of core processes, including software assembly and threat detection updates, will be supervised by an independent third party.

After facing a US ban, Russia-based Kaspersky Lab on Thursday announced to move its core customer data storage and processing processes for most regions to Zurich, Switzerland, by 2019 — at a time when the European Union (EU) gets ready to introduce a new data privacy law.

The transfer of core processes, including software assembly and threat detection updates, will be supervised by an independent third party, also based in Switzerland, Kaspersky said in a statement.

“By the end of 2019, Kaspersky Lab will have established a data center in Zurich and in this facility will store and process all information for users in Europe, North America, Singapore, Australia, Japan and South Korea, with more countries to follow,” the cyber-security firm said.

How to use Google Lens

Google came out with a new version of Google Lens in beta, the company announced at its annual developer conference on Tuesday. If you have one of the ten additional Android devices that are getting Google Lens inside their native camera apps, you’ll be able to access the feature simply by going into your camera and seeing the icon on the bottom right.

Tapping on the icon activates the Google Lens feature and you’ll be able to point your smartphone camera at objects and different sights to identify more information about them. Google Lens is also getting a real-time finder that will analyze what your camera sees even before you tap on the display. The tool will process the pixels through machine learning to provide more details and also provide relevant search tags.

WHICH DEVICES ARE GETTING GOOGLE LENS?

Initially, it was just the Google Pixel 1 and Google Pixel 2 that had access to Lens. Now, as part of the latest update to Google Lens, the feature is coming to ten additional Android devices inside their native camera apps.

So far Google has only revealed the manufacturers of those ten devices: LG, Motorola, Xiaomi, Sony Mobile, HMD/Nokia, Transsion, TCL, OnePlus, BQ, and Asus. We’ve reached out to Google to find out which specifically which devices will receive Google Lens.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE THINGS GOOGLE LENS CAN IDENTIFY?

Google Lens can identify clothes, books, buildings, plants, animals, and works of art. It’ll be able to pull relevant shopping results for clothes it snaps, titles of books, more information about landmarks, and details about paintings. It can also tell you what species and classification is an animal or plant.

Additionally, Lens will soon be able to play a music video if you point your camera at a poster of a musician. It can display movie times when you’re outside of a theater. And through the new smart text selection feature, it can save the contact information from a business card, and add an event to your calendar from a flyer or billboard.

There’s also a crossover between Google Lens and Maps this time around, which will add AR to Street View and help you navigate in real time.

Fortnite is coming to Android this summer.!!

Epic Games’ massively popular battle royale game Fortnite is coming to Android phones this summer, the company announced in a developer blog post this morning. The post, titled “The State of Mobile,” broke down a number of new features the game’s mobile team has been working on. Those include a customizable HUD, which launched earlier this week, and a new voice chat function exclusively for mobile.

“We know that communication is key when you’re squadding up for that Victory Royale, so we’re working to bring voice chat to mobile. On top of that, you’ll be able to chat with your teammates regardless of platform,” the blog post reads. Epic is also working on strong opt-in options and muting features to make sure voice chat is not abused. “We’re also looking to make it really easy to mute yourself, other players, or open up all communications with a simple tap. There will be a button on the screen that lets you mute yourself, mute everyone in your party, or go back to open-microphone.”

In addition to an Android release this summer and voice chat sometime in the foreseeable future, Epic is also working on gameplay features like firing and auto-run, improving performance and introducing a battery-saving mode, and making sure players on mobile can access in-game statistics.

Fortnite has been available on iOS since the middle of March, where it’s rocketed to the top of the App Store’s free charts. Mobile analytics firm Sensor Tower estimated the company made $15 million in in-app purchases in the first three weeks it was live on the App Store. That means an Android launch may drastically increase the game’s revenue-generating potential.

Intel Discontinues Its Remote Keyboard App for Android, iOS Due to Vulnerabilities

Intel has decided to kill the Intel Remote Keyboard app for Android and iOS devices in order to protect user devices from three vulnerabilities – one of which was classified as “critical”. The chip maker has also issued a Product Discontinuation notice to recommend users to uninstall the app from their devices. The app was notably launched by the company in 2015 to let users wirelessly control their Intel NUC (next unit of computing) and Intel Compute Stick computers and transform their smartphones or tablets into a virtual keyboard and mouse.

As per the security advisory dated April 3, all versions of the Intel Remote Keyboard app have been spotted with three distinct vulnerabilities. Two of the vulnerabilities, listed as CVE-2018-3645 and CVE-2018-3638, have received a severity score of “high”, while the other one, titled CVE-2018-3645, has been listed as “critical”. The critical issue essentially allows a local attacker to inject keystrokes into another remote keyboard session. Importantly, three different security researchers discovered the flaws that ultimately convinced Intel to remove the Remote Keyboard app from Google Play and Apple App Store.

“Intel has issued a Product Discontinuation notice for Intel Remote Keyboard and recommends that users of the Intel Remote Keyboard uninstall it at their earliest convenience,” the company noted in the security advisory.

The Intel Remote Keyboard app had emerged as a vital app for Intel NUC and Compute Stick. The app offered keyboard and mouse access directly through a smartphone or tablet and included features such as PC key support, custom keyboard capabilities, Windows 10 gesture controls, and multi-language support.

According to a cached version of its Google Play listing, the Intel Remote Keyboard app had over 500,000 installations and an average rating of 3.8 out of 5.0. The app received its last update in last June. The cached version was initially spotted by folks at Bleeping Computer.

What Exactly Does an AI Engineer Do?

AI engineering falls into the greater purview of the growing artificial intelligence field. Some AI engineers get their start in software engineering and then move into AI, while others come from unique backgrounds such as biology, according to IEEE. This is a constantly-changing field where agility is key, so the skill requirements will be as unique as the organization you work for, however as a general lay of the land here is some useful information adapted from a subject matter expert on Quora:
