It is no secret that significant improvements in the development of new artificial intelligence systems are gradually leading to a significant expansion of the possibilities for self-learning - and at the same time, it is becoming more and more difficult for human users to maintain anonymity and confidentiality on the network. This is evidenced by a new social study in the field of cyber security, compiled by an experienced team of computer engineers from the University of California under the leadership of computer and optical engineering professor Anil Aswani - in his work he argues that artificial intelligence also creates problems in international law.
Namely, in the field of compliance with the 1996 HIPAA International Internet Privacy Act, his study collected training data on artificial intelligence and machine algorithms over the past two years, aimed at user data from more than 15,000 Americans participating in the experiment. The results of the experiments showed that even the most proven and powerful ways to protect user information for the most part give up their positions in front of constantly improving artificial intelligence, which finds new loopholes and opportunities to penetrate the personal and corporate sphere of users.
Thus, Aswani points out the need to review current international agreements on this issue, as well as to revise the approach to the design and use of artificial intelligence in Internet information systems, where it can cause considerable problems in the context of confidentiality and information protection.
Be that as it may, it becomes clear that such a situation may be very good news for some, and for others - an occasion to think about enhancing the effectiveness of cyber protection tools. In addition, an increase in the functionality and capabilities of artificial intelligence can also mean the possibility of building more complex machine learning systems.
Space will become accessible to tourists: US specialists will build hotels in the Universe

Space is getting closer and closer for everyone. This time, several American companies decided to build a hotel for tourists in space.
People have long puzzled over how to better and more efficiently master space. And here are a few American companies have proposed a radical solution to space exploration and even build several hotels for tourists there.
Thus, the California-based Gateway Foundation plans to build a huge space station that can accommodate more than 400 people, including tourists, researchers, doctors and domestic workers.
It is reported by Gromadske with reference to Reuters.
It became known that the Gateway Foundation is already developing a project to build a huge space station, which could accommodate more than 400 visitors, including scientists, tourists and even attendants. This is a large-scale project, which is taking place and may soon come to life.
As the developers assure that this will make it possible to save money and go on vacation not to overseas islands, but to space. Previously, it was even hard to believe, but with how the work on the project is going, it is likely that this will soon become a reality and people can actually fly on vacation into space.
It is noted that the company plans to place the first people at such a station as early as 2024. Accompanied by a crew member at the station will be able to stay 12 days with up to five passengers. The cost of such a trip will be 9.5 million dollars.
Guests at such a space station can enjoy sunrise and sunset, take part in scientific research and play table tennis in zero gravity.
The atomizer contains a special liquid, which consists of the smallest fibers.
According to cosmetologists, the spray consists of thin fibers that hide defects, moles and at the same time do not interfere with a person’s own skin to breathe.
Spray or Est product is an artificial skin replacement, reports Daily Mail.
The fluid consists of the smallest fibers that adhere to the surface of the skin and create a shell about one thousandth of a millimeter thick.
The developers assured that the membrane is elastic and stretches in all directions. They especially emphasized that the spray does not harm the skin, because it does not seal tightly: there are microscopic gaps between the fibers that allow air and water to pass through.
Beauticians are convinced that the novelty will even help moisturize the skin, because thanks to the shell, the water lingers in it longer.
The tool is planned to be put on sale in Japan and it will cost about 58 thousand yen, which is about or 530 dollars. They are also planning to offer artificial skin in the form of a lotion, which will be much cheaper. Since 2020, they promise to make products available for online ordering.
Representatives of the manufacturer said that their novelty can and should be used in medicine. Earlier in the USA, a stem cell saturated liquid spray was used to treat burns.
Physicists at the University of Illinois today unveiled a unique new technology for heat flux switches, which until now has only been contained primarily on paper and in the minds of researchers, due to the many practical problems of its practical design. An article with this technology has already been published in the scientific journal Applies Physics Letters, where development experts explained how they managed to create a full-fledged thermal switch of the heat flow, while not only not upsetting the balance inside the device, but also efficiently and timely transmitting the flow as desired operator user.
Switches in general are an extremely common technical element in our daily lives - with the help of mechanical switches, for example, we can open and close the doors of cars, and with the help of electric ones turn on and turn off the electricity. However, the practical creation of a heat flux switch is a rather problematic task, since it is necessary to find a way to “destroy” the connection between the hot region and the cold region within the framework of such a switch.
And Illinois experts found one, using drops of liquid metal as a bond-breaking barrier. Liquid metal is used in the context of the so-called heat path, which has also become part of the development - it represents the direction of the heat flow to the switches, which is activated and deactivated with the help of liquid metal.
Successful experiments with such a prototype of the heat flux switch have led scientists to the idea that it is necessary to try to further improve and stabilize the manual switching of the heat flux. To this end, they used a system model of the switch, on the one side of which they placed a mini heat center, and on the other, a center of cold flow. By deactivating the mid-direction of the heat flux and liquid metal, they were able to successfully cool and heat the device, depending on the initial operator’s command. Such a method can be truly revolutionary!
Managing Director of PXL Vision Karim Nemr (Karim Nemr) told how the new technology allows you to confirm your identity via smartphone. According to the expert, such an opportunity will greatly facilitate the life of people.
The new technology allows you to replace employees who are currently verifying the identity of potential customers in a bank branch or mobile operator’s store. The process is this: first, the mobile device scans the front and back of its ID card, and then records a short selfie video. Using the application, documents are uploaded to a certified server. Within a few seconds, the system confirms the authenticity of the scanned document and video if there is a real face in front of the camera and if the identity document matches that person. Using this fully automated method, customers can immediately set up a bank account anywhere, with no time limits.

According to Karim Nemra, the technology, called Daego, supports all international travel documents, as well as other forms of identification, such as a voter card, which serves as the main identity card in Mexico. The new opportunity will come in handy in other areas, for example, when hiring a nanny, private tutor, for online games or dating on the Internet. Using the application, people can quickly check whether the person at the door is really the person who applied for the position. PXL Vision's Managing Director says the new technology is completely secure.
