I found the article I have linked in this post so powerful and awesome..I got goosebumps!

 

To build a fully automated, computer-driven system that would find bugs in software and patch them on its own, DARPA has invited teams from all over the country to compete  in a major cyberbattle it calls the Grand Cyber Challenge, with a  $2 million first prize.

 

 

How exciting if one of our own Bleeping Computer experts would compete and win the prize!!

Would be nice if they were to stream the competition or at least give real-time results and updates. I would monitor this closely.

the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, dubbed the “Department of Mad Scientists,” envisions a massive, automated computer system that not only detects the smoke, but prevents the fire from happening in the first place — or snuffs it out almost immediately.

 

A group with a title like that should make us all feel good these are the folks running the show at the Pentagon. :crazy:

Pentagon research agency that invented the Internet is trying to figure out how to protect it.

NOT COMPLETELY ACCURATE.

Tim Berners-Lee, is an English computer scientist, best known as the inventor of the World Wide Web. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Berners-Lee

Inventor of World Wide Web warns of threat to internet. https://news.yahoo.com/inventor-world-wide-warns-threat-internet-224455080.html
The British inventor of the World Wide Web warned that the freedom of the internet is under threat by governments and corporations interested in controlling the web.

But the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, dubbed the Department of Mad Scientists, envisions a massive, automated computer system that not only detects the smoke, but prevents the fire from happening in the first place or snuffs it out almost immediately.
