1.5 Impact on emerging technologies (Part One)
Artificial Inteligence (AI) Biometrics
Biometric technology has problems like falsely rejecting a person´s fingerprint. And facial-recognition systems have the same problems.
Artificial inteligence overcomes this problems and new AI systems are being developed to make these security systems more relyable.
They are mostly used in the area of manufacturing buy with time they precense is evolving.
Applications include drones, used by civilians and the military and robots in surigical procedures.
Criptography is the cience of making a message unintelligable to a hacker, the technique is also reffered to as encryption.
There are many methods of cryptography but they all have a limited life because computers are becoming faster and faster at number crounching.
A concequence of this is that unless computer designers can further increase security, hackers become more likely to decipher encrypted messages.
Quantum Cryptography is based on the use of photons (lighy) to produce a virtually unbreakable cryptography system
This helps protect the data being transmitted over fibre-optic cables.
This relies on the fact that photoms oscilate on many directions and produce a series of random bits (0s and 1s) across the optical network.
It is based on the laws of physics rather than mathematics.
Low vision enhacement systems
Use video technology through a headset connected to a computer. The systems allow images to be projected into the headster.
It brings objects closer to user for examination.
Night vision enhacement
Amplifies visible and infrared light so that an image can be seen in the dark.
How it works
The dim light source is captured and passed through an image intensifier tube.
The tube converts the light into electrosns. They go through another tube that amplifies them and several times the original number of electrons is produced.
There is a screen at the end of the tube coated in phosphor dots that glow when they collide with electrons. The result is a clearer image than the original.
