Push even further, DARPA!

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...

DARPA has been spawning good work with these challenges.

Great Challenge scheme offered by DARPA

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.

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

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.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
