Push even further, DARPA!
LarryM99   10/25/2013 10:31:10 PM
I like this! I participated in a DARPA proposal team when I worked for a major defense contractor, and that effort did not impress me. There were some interesting ideas, but they were tiresomely academic. My suggestion would be to follow this with another Grand Challenge to hack the winner of this competition. Not that there won't be such an effort anyway...

Great Challenge scheme offered by DARPA
Kinnar   10/26/2013 8:54:14 AM
It is really a very great challenge offered by DARPA, only a group of good programming skill persons with debugging expertise can go for this. Since the competition is to find the vulnerability in the code itself this will become really a hard challenge to find it from a code written by someone else. May be this will give a very good monitoring tool as an outcome of the event.

DARPA has been spawning good work with these challenges.

Also it will attract programmers to the challenges and opportunities in the web space. I am sure that data security is not a new problem but initiatives such as these will put these problems in limelight again.

This is a good way to divert a hacker from criminal activity to working on something for the good of the internet.  It's enough money to make it happen.

i hope people are not after the cash grab and taking a shortcut of adding code to existing devices....


starting from scratch would probably cost the average joe too much though...

Ultimate challenge
DrQuine   10/26/2013 7:33:05 PM
The ultimate challenge is to detect and reapir damage from threats while leaving some computing resources for their users - the consumer. As it is, computers seem so intent upon maintaining themselves, they often have no time left to do our work - which should be their only reason for existing.

Not everything and everyone is novel. if this would have been the case the development direction would not be multidirectional. But every new knowledge can open path to new understanding.

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
