Google and IBM to jointly address developer security challenges with Grafeas

Google and IBM recently joined forces to create and open source the Grafeas project, with an aim to provide developers a structured way of auditing and governing the modern software supply chains. Grafeas provides an open API that collects and aggregates the metadata generated at various stages of software supply chain. The metadata store and enforcement point help in gaining visibility into development environments and in enforcing policies without slowing down the development teams. IBM has an in-built Vulnerability Advisor into its Container service as a part of DevOps process that scans the container images and detects software package vulnerability and poor software configurations. It further makes a risk assessment for the contained software. To build a more comprehensive security an...

AI and cognitive computing – spearheading enterprise digital transformation

Artificial Intelligence, robotics and machine learning concepts are changing the parameters of data extraction and analysis. With the onset of digital transformation, there’s a great need to process huge volumes of data into useful insights. But with traditional data analytic methods, businesses are not be able to process the entire data, especially that which is in the form of images, videos, and human voice, collectively known as ‘dark data’. To process such kind of data, organizations need cognitive computing. Originally, the concept of cognitive computing comes from cognitive science which include study of human brain and how it works. Cognitive computing aims to stimulate the human thought processing in a computerized way. It achieves that with the help of various se...
