Scientists Use DNA To Store Digital Data

In my previous article, I have written about the proliferation and abundance of data in our world, and the need for novel computing mechanisms, as our current computers may not be able to effectively handle such an influx data coming from the increasing use of digital technologies. This being the case, scientists are coming up with creative and cutting edge solutions to harness these large volumes of data in their quest to forge ahead with innovation. However, in order to do so we must either have novel and more efficient computers, or better ways of working and storing the data. One such breakthrough in data storage was recently developed at Harvard University by a team of researchers that used DNA as the storage material for digital data. 

DNA is the building block of life, carrying the

EU digital boss: New rules to curb big tech aim for fairness

LONDON (AP) — The European Union is set to propose new laws to rein in the power of big tech companies, including measures to ensure customers are protected, smaller rivals are treated fairly, and illegal content is dealt with, the bloc’s digital and antitrust chief said on Thursday.

Executive Vice President Margrethe Vestager outlined two draft laws that the EU’s executive Commission plans to introduce in early December. They amount to a sweeping overhaul of digital regulations, though the final version will depend on negotiations with the EU Parliament and the bloc’s 27 member states.

The first, the Digital Services Act, aims to update EU e-commerce rules by making tech companies take more responsibility for dangerous products, such as requiring them to check sellers’ ID in order to weed out “dodgy traders.” But it will also place a greater onus on the companies to deal with illegal content such as

Digital demand stokes big returns in emerging markets

At this time of peak uncertainty, pairing a global pandemic with a wildly unpredictable U.S. presidential election, one might assume a reduced appetite for investments in the far reaches of emerging markets.

But as most financial advisers will attest and many will swear by, investing is about diversification, and real diversification requires a certain level of risk and adventure.

Consider the knock-out performance of the $1.1 billion EMQQ Emerging Markets Internet & Ecommerce ETF (EMQQ), which is up 54% from the start of the year on the heels of a 34% gain last year. For context, consider the benchmark-tracking iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (EEM), which is up 2.5% this year after gaining 18.2% last year.

The extreme disparity — and EMQQ is not the only example — is a reminder of where things are in the emerging markets these days and why financial advisers should tread gingerly into the

Remote Workforce: How CIOs are accelerating digital transformation for the future of work

Work from home is now a six-month-old norm for organizations across the globe. The pandemic led CIOs and IT teams across industries—irrespective of sizes—to adopt the new style of work and quickly shift their teams to virtual environments. 

This transformation required investment in PCs, services, and infrastructure to support data and work happening at the ‘edge’ which includes security and compute for new collaborative SaaS tools, and productivity as per their business type, IT budgets, and customer expectations.

After the initial shift to facilitate remote working, CIOs are reassessing priorities as technology, workforce enablement, and culture are now taking the center stage. 

Amit Midha, president (APJ) region and Global Digital Cities business for Dell Technologies agrees: “2020 has certainly been a year like no other with no playbook for what we’ve been through or for what lies ahead. Our teams and our customers are all trying to navigate
