ICYMI: Top 10 DevSecOps tools and cut-price animal robots

A week is a long time in tech, so here are some of Technology Magazine’s most popular articles which have been starting conversations around the world

Budget robots inspired by animals a step forward for humans

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science and the University of California have designed a system that enables a small, low-cost robot to climb and descend stairs, traverse uneven and varied terrain, walk across gaps, and even operate in the dark.

The research could be a step toward solving existing challenges facing legged robots and bringing them into people’s homes, say researchers. A paper supporting the research - Legged Locomotion in Challenging Terrains Using Egocentric Vision - will be presented at the upcoming Conference on Robot Learning in Auckland, New Zealand.

Multi-million 6G investment to build digital infrastructure

With the 6G era on the horizon, Ericsson has announced a multi-million investment focused on the next generation of networking, from cognitive networks and artificial intelligence (AI) to energy efficiency.

Expected to be commercially available in the 2030s, 6G will bring network connectivity to the next level: from smart cities, farms or factories and robotics. It will connect the physical world to our own human world, thanks to the massive scale deployment of sensors and artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) with digital twin models and real-time synchronous updates.

Cybersecurity response costs up in light of new cloud risks

Businesses pay US$1,197 per employee each year to address the fallout of successful cyber attacks, according to a new report, which means a 500-employee company spends on average US$600,000 each year for cybersecurity responses.

Threat prevention company Perception Point’s report The Rise of Cyber Threats Against Email, Browsers and Emerging Cloud-Based Channels investigates the expanding threat landscape against email, browsers, and emerging cloud-based channels.
