A faulty battery just cost Samsung a pile of money and tarnished its reputation.
But the Korean electronics giant wasn’t the first company forced to recall a product due to batteries that had a tendency to catch fire — not by a long shot. And it almost certainly won’t be the last.
A website used to fund the campaigns of Republican senators was infected with malware that for more than six months collected donors' personal information, including full names, addresses, and credit card data, a researcher said.
NTechLab is only a year old, but the Russian startup is making headlines with its controversial facial recognition technology.
The company rocketed to the top of this nascent industry when it beat Google in the “MegaFace” facial recognition competition held last year in Washington state.
With 30 successful tests under its belt and 300 pending orders, the company is ready to take its facial recognition system to the world. The company plans to make its cloud-based facial recognition system available to corporate, government, and law enforcement clients.

It’s no secret that American law has been building facial recognition databases to aide in its investigations. But a new, comprehensive report on the status of facial recognition as a tool in law enforcement shows the sheer scope and reach of the FBI’s database of faces and those of state-level law enforcement agencies: Roughly half of American adults are included in those collections. And that massive assembly of biometric data is accessed with only spotty oversight of its accuracy and how it’s used and searched.
