American engineers have developed a self-learning artificial intelligence system that can be protected from bots. Specialists report that the new invention is several hundred times more effective than conventional coping with captcha (CAPCHA).
The creator of the technology, Dilip George, said that using the development of deep neural networks and system neurophysiology, they managed to create a completely new model of digital recognition, which can bypass protection from robots on sites.
The main problem of all now created artificial intelligence is the inability to learn new skills independently. This leads to the need to use large data sets that are handled by humans manually.
The new program is built on the latest technology RCN (recursive cortical network), which simulates the work of the cortex of the human brain. The system is already able to recognize the numbers and letters used in an arbitrary form, based on the study of 260 examples of tasks of the CAPCHA type.

Wi-Fi is the most popular technology for Internet access, but it is not without flaws, due to which communication in some cases may be lost or weakened. What if the home Internet is no longer as bright as it used to be?
This is the most obvious and stupid advice, but, oddly enough, sometimes he helps out. Perhaps the memory of the router was full, and therefore it does not manage to process all the packets. The reset will clear its memory and free up space. Some routers restart themselves on a schedule.
Go to the settings of the router through the browser and see who else is connected to your network. Even if you do not have guest access, your Wi-Fi could be cracked by someone by selecting a password or using a trojan.
Go to your account on the provider's website or look into the contract with him and find out the connection speed. If it is below 10 megabits per second, it will be problematic to use the Internet comfortably. Perhaps it makes sense to take a more advanced tariff or change the provider.
Like any other equipment, routers become obsolete both morally and technically. Sell the old router, add a little money and buy a new one, more smart. Even the cheapest modern routers work fast enough, but for more expensive models, usually a higher speed and a more powerful signal.
Go to the settings of the router and see if there are updates available. Perhaps, after installing the update, the Internet speed will increase. Update is also necessary because routers have vulnerabilities that are exploited by hackers. Perhaps your router has already become part of the botnet and it is because of this that the speed has decreased.
In large flats and houses, only one router usually does not have enough power for all rooms. Repeaters, repeaters, amplifiers or signal repeaters solve this problem. Their task is to amplify the Wi-Fi signal, increasing the coverage area.
Free channel
In multi-apartment buildings, dozens of routers coexist with each other and they all operate in the same frequency range, but on different channels. Check which channel is freer than the rest (for example, using the WiFi Analyzer application), and then go to the settings of the router and switch to this channel. Some router models can automatically switch to the least busy channel.
Radio emission is extinguished by thick walls (especially if there are metal bars in them). If your computer is partitioned off from the router by several walls, it is not surprising that the connection is too slow and unstable. Open the properties of the wireless network and look at the signal quality and data rate. If the green division is small, and the speed is below the default for the Wi-Fi adapter in the computer and the router, then it makes sense to install the router closer to the computer.

The Facebook company announced changes that should make the political advertising in the social network more transparent. Earlier, the company was criticized after reports of three thousand political ads related to Russia.
Advertisers will need to provide more information to identify them, wrote in his account, the head of the Facebook Mark Zuckerberg. Sotsset, he said, will label their ads as political, and "they will have to disclose who pays for it."
"You will also have the opportunity to see how much the advertiser paid, what people are watching this advertisement and how many views there were," Zuckerberg said. "Our goal is to fully launch this in the US before the midterm elections in 2018."
The company is also going to hire several thousand moderators to identify political advertising. These measures were undertaken against the backdrop of reports that Russian-backed groups used social network ads to intervene in the US elections in 2016.

Facebook will give the US data on advertising, paid from Russia
In early September of this year, Facebook management announced that for almost two years fake accounts related to Russia were buying political advertisements in the social network.
For about three thousand ads from June 2015 to May 2017, according to Facebook, it was spent about 100 thousand dollars. The investigation also affected the advertising in the Instagram exchange service, which belongs to the company.
The criticism of Facebook demanded greater transparency. After that, the company announced, will change the algorithm for working with paid posts, including introducing "additional assessment and approval by employees."

"We will work to create a standard of transparency for political advertising," wrote Zuckerberg and promised to pass on information on advertisements related to Russia, to those who are investigating possible interference by Moscow in the election of the US president.
On Tuesday, the leaders of Facebook and other Internet companies will speak at the hearings in the US Senate. In October, the media reported that Google also found traces of Russian funding in contextual advertising of political content.
As early as the beginning of the year, US special services said that Russia allegedly helped Donald Trump to win the presidential election, including spreading false information in social networks. Russia denies interference in the American elections.
