Can Hackers Be Stopped? The State of Defense in the Private Sector

One week before the recent massive hack attack shut off access to Twitter, PayPal, Airbnb and dozens of other major websites, I was at an off-the-record conference with leaders of some of the country's biggest companies, discussing cyberthreats. Like soldiers in one of the landing crafts approaching the beach on D-Day, the CEOs seemed resigned to their grim fate. A destructive attack was inevitably going to rip through some, if not all, of them. They felt sorry for themselves and one another.And most weren’t even imagining how bad it’s going to get.

How deep is your learning?

When the virtual assistant Siri showed up on iPhones four years ago, the technology felt like the first glimpse of those scary-smart, talking robots you’ve been reading about in science fiction for years. A machine that could answer any question you had, from who won the 1968 World Series to the location of your nearest dry cleaner? And even pick music for you?
