The row over Chinese hackers illegally accessing the emails of human rights activists has escalated to global proportions with high profile officials exchanging a war of words. “Declaring that an attack on one nation’s computer networks ‘can be an attack on all,’ Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton issued a warning on Thursday that the United States would defend itself from cyberattacks, though she left unclear the means of response. In a sweeping, pointed address that dealt with the Internet as a force for both liberation and repression, Mrs. Clinton said: ‘Those who disrupt the free flow of information in our society or any other pose a threat to our economy, our government and our civil society. Countries or individuals that engage in cyber-attacks should face consequences and international condemnation.’ In response, the Chinese Foreign Ministry issued a curt, cautionary statement on its Web site on Friday: ‘We urge the U.S. side to respect facts and stop using the so-called freedom of the Internet to make unjustified accusations against China.’”
Within the next few decades, we may well have hard evidence for the existence of alien life on worlds light-years distant from Earth.
We used to think, "That email isn’t going to write itself." But now it can, thanks to AI. And there's so much more, from coding to marketing.
