US Attorney General William Barr Has Encryption All Wrong

William Barr is an idiot. I’m not talking about his handling of the Mueller report, nor am I talking about Ukrainian conspiracy theories. You can make up your own minds about those issues. I’m talking about Barr’s completely wrong, incorrect, so-backward-it’s-right-out-the-damn-window stance on encryption. Both in a recent letter to Facebook and as far back as July, Barr has made it clear that he wants backdoors into encrypted communication systems, consequences be damned. This outlook puts the private messages of…

What is synthetic data and how can it help protect privacy? | Data

The increasing prevalence of data science coupled with a recent proliferation of privacy scandals is driving demand for secure and accessible synthetic data. Synthetic data is artificially generated to replicate the statistical components of real-world data but doesn’t contain any identifiable information. This lowers the barrier to deploy data science by removing the need for vast volumes or real data, and also adds security by eliminating personal information from the equation.

AMD’s supply issues could undermine the success of Ryzen 9 CPUs

I have some mild concerns about AMD at the moment. Pricing of its current 3rd Gen Ryzen flagship, the Ryzen 9 3900X, has skyrocketed, and stock has been hit or miss pretty much since launch. The CPU with a launch price of less than £500 is now retailing for £550 or more, and many large retailers are now saying more stock isn’t due until next month. This is a shame, because it’s easily the most drool-worthy of AMD’s current lineup. …
