Troops now have a secure means to share videos. With the unveiling of milTube, the latest addition to milSuite, the military work force no longer needs to turn to YouTube—a practice the higher echelons frown upon—to share training or professional development clips. The set of tools known as milSuite also includes milBook, milWiki and milBlog, which all feature easily recognizable user interfaces and, more importantly, security.
A groundbreaking artificial intelligence (AI) project seeks to have sensors accepting and transmitting information in a method similar to the human brain. Being developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) along with SRI International, the Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics, or SyNAPSE, project is surpassing traditional mathematical algorithms and attempting to process information in complex environments autonomously by learning relevant and probabilistically stable features and associations automatically.

Although it cherishes the work of its sailors, the U.S. Navy is boosting its priority on autonomous systems that in many ways will save humans. The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) is establishing the Autonomous Systems Research Laboratory (ASRL), which will dive deep into highly innovative, interdisciplinary research. The new facility, scheduled to open in October 2011, will be the nexus for scientists and engineers with differing backgrounds to apply their expertise to inventions that operate with little to no intervention from humans.
The command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance community's clamor for a reduction of under-the-desk hardware should soon be answered. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) officials are working through the certification and accreditation process for a one-box solution to address the need for secure access to multiple networks, and an application to enable data sharing across those networks is close behind.

While anecdotes abound about professionals who have lost job opportunities over something they’ve posted online, new research reveals that the risk is greater than suspected. A survey Cross-Tab conducted of more than 1,100 human resources professionals found that 70 percent of recruiters have rejected a candidate for employment based on text, photos or videos they discovered online.
