Apple Patent Reveals Siri-Assisted iMessage P2P Payments Platform

Apple has filed a patent application for a “virtual assistant in a communication session.” On first glance, application 14/713,410 might scare developers of chat bots and the like, but Apple is specific in the scope of their claims – Siri, their virtual assistant platform, will be able to directly communicate with either user in an iMessage conversation and then be able to act on the instructions given. The other participant of the conversation will not see messages intended to Siri, nor messages sent from Siri to the user activating her. This is somewhat different from current implementations of chat bots and virtual assistants in chat programs, in that the classical chat bot for, [...]

Chinese White Hats Win $200,000 for Hacking iPhones, Google Devices

 

The Pwn2Own contest, a hackathon run by security firm Trend Micro’s Zero Day Initiative (ZDI) in Japan sees this year’s winners in Keen Lab, a popular crew of Chinese hackers who hacked Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Nexus device.

Keen Lab compromised the iPhone 6s by targeting two iOS vulnerabilities to steal pictures from an iPhone, according to Forbes. For that hack alone, they were awarded $52,500. Furthermore, they also installed a rogue application on the iPhone 6s. However, that app did not survive beyond a reboot of the phone, due to a default iPhone security configuration that prevented persistence of malware. Still, ZDI bought the bugs used by the hackers [...]

Lloyds Bank to Use Virtual Reality for Graduate Programme Intake

The Lloyds Banking Group is taking a different approach toward its 2017 graduate intake by using virtual reality to test the reactions of potential candidates.

Every year, Lloyds receives more than 20,000 applications from graduate applicants. Each of them is seeking a place on one of 14 placements in its Graduate Leadership Programmes. Naturally, undertaking such a mammoth task of going through each of the 20,000 applications takes a lot of time. Not only that, but reading something on paper doesn’t always demonstrate what a person can be like in real life.

In order to tackle this issue, the bank has reported that it will be utilizing virtual reality on the [...]

Apple CEO Tim Cook Wants Augmented and Virtual Reality Tech to “Encourage” Human Contact

So far, Apple has been the slowest of the big boys to getting an augmented or virtual reality product to market. The company’s iPhone is the single most popular smart phone on the planet and its computer products enjoy relative popularity (in early 2014, they were almost 9% of the market, a quadrupling from turn-of-the-century numbers). On a trip to Tokyo this week, CEO Tim Cook told BuzzFeed that he believes there is “no substitute for human contact. And so you want the technology to encourage that.”

Cook also said he thinks augmented reality can be “huge.” And if the numbers from the recent phenomenon of Pokémon Go are any indication, he’s absolutely right. Apple’s [...]
