Asia Remote Jobs, powered by Singapore-based New Day Jobs, was awarded by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a finalist in the annual Global MIT Solve event.

Many of our remote professionals have partial time zone overlap with their teams.

Some companies see this as a negative, whereas in reality, this can be a positive.

At the SecTor security conference, an MIT futurist details an open-source effort that aims to restore trust and improve data privacy for cyber-security

In the modern world, what has become increasingly obvious to Massachusetts Institute of Technology futurist David Shrier is that no one is safe and it’s time for a new model for security and data privacy.

In a keynote address at the SecTor security conference here on Nov. 14, Shrier outlined efforts underway by the MIT Trust::Data Consortium, which he helps to lead, to build new systems that redefine how data is shared and secured.

While there is a need for privacy and encryption, there is also a need to be able to access private data in a secure manner for such use cases as counterterrorism, medical emergencies and in times of humanitarian crisis, he said.

“How do we share data safely, and how do we secure it better and then shift the whole model?” Shrier asked the capacity keynote audience.

“We need a policy around us owning our own personal data and not Facebook, and we should also have an audit trail of access,” he said.

Researchers at MIT have developed an algorithm that can predict what s going to happen next in a video, giving you an opportunity to look away first.

The algorithm, developed at MIT s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, is slowly trying to learn a skill that humans spend their entire lives refining and perfecting.

To give an algorithm the same intuitions on human behaviour as we all have, the researchers had it analyse countless hours of YouTube, as well as TV series like The Office and Desperate Housewives.

When given a still frame from one of those videos, the algorithm searches for patterns and recognisable objects—hands, human faces, etc.—and attempts to predict their motion in order to conclude where they ll end up, and what they might do there.

Nothing yet.

The researchers hope that one day algorithms like this could help improve how robots interact with humans.

As one of the leading technology universities in the world, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has invented a lot of the cool tech we’d love to fill our apartments with.

Well, researchers there just added one more item to the list — although this one’s a bit different to the typical robotics or artificial intelligence projects we usually cover.

What MIT engineers have invented is a plant that glows in the dark.

By embedding specialized nanoparticles into the leaves of an otherwise ordinary watercress plant, researchers were able to get the plant to emit a dim light for a period of 3.5 hours.

Instead of using electricity, the plants utilize their existing energy metabolism and convert this into light.

While a dim light might not be of much use, eventually the researchers hope that it will be possible to make the plants glow brightly enough that they could illuminate an entire desk — acting like a natural desk lamp that you never have to plug in.

Typically when you purchase something like a case for your phone, the color or image on it is static and can’t be changed. When you want a different color or a different image, you have to buy a new case. MIT has developed a system that uses light and special light-activated dye to create programmable matter. Researchers on the project … Continue reading

The bright minds at MIT are always cooking up new technologies, so to hear that they invented a new material that s stronger than steel isn t even all that surprising, but what s particularly interesting it that they managed to also make it far lighter than almost everything else.

The team of scientists used an extremely common element to create it: Carbon.

Researchers have long known how strong carbon can be when it s arranged in the right way.

Graphene, which essentially an extremely thin sheet of carbon atoms arranged in two dimensions, is ridiculously strong, and the applications for it are growing by the day.

The only drawback is that, because it s typically produced in thin sheets, it s hard to construct three dimensional objects out of it.

That s where MIT comes in.

MIT researchers have been conducting a study into black holes of various sizes. On September 9, 2018, a fortuitous event occurred when astronomers spied a flash of light from a galaxy about 860 million light-years away. The source of the flash of light was a supermassive black hole approximately 50 times the mass of the sun that was normally very … Continue reading

MIT has developed a new system meant to build a robo-starfish for studying underwater marine life quickly. Researchers say that when trying to study marine life, it helps to use a device that doesn’t scare the animals by appearing unnatural. The newly created robo-starfish is built using a new rapid development system that can create the robots in hours rather … Continue reading

Researchers worldwide have been working hard to give robots the ability to better sense the environment around them. Before robots can work side-by-side with humans, they have to be able to sense humans and other objects for safety and to be useful. Researchers from MIT have developed a new robot able to sense objects, even if hidden from view, using … Continue reading

Over the last year, “fake news” has gone from being a niche concern that charlatans exploited for profit, to a code red existential threat to the fabric of society—or something in between.

But our scientific understanding of how and why false stories spread is still limited.

A new paper published in on Thursday is the largest ever longitudinal study of the spread of false news online.

MIT’s Soroush Vosoughi and his colleagues took a look at 126,000 rumour cascades tweeted by three million people more than 4.5 million times in order to better understand the qualities that go into an effectively viral news story.

The researchers used numerous controls, established mathematical models, and systems of approach in their evaluation of a comprehensive data set of every fact-checked rumour cascade that spread on Twitter from its inception in 2006 to 2017.

Deb Roy, one of the paper’s co-authors told us that Twitter was the obvious network choice for the study because, unlike Facebook, its data is open to the public and MIT “has had a multi-year relationship with Twitter where we have elevated access to that public data.” The authors point to a separate study of rumour cascades from 2014 that focused on Facebook and used a smaller dataset, as the only paper comparable to their approach.
