Cyber Warfare – Truth, Tactics, and Strategies takes you on a journey through the myriad of cyber attacks and threats that are present in a world powered by AI, big data, autonomous vehicles, drones video, and social media. Dr. Chase Cunningham uses his military background to provide you with a unique perspective on cyber security and warfare. Moving away from a reactive stance to one that is forward-looking, he aims to prepare people and organizations to better defend themselves in a world where there are no borders or perimeters.

Because humans typically prefer to feel that they are interacting with other humans, retailers have spent significant time and money building out realistic human voice assistants and online support solutions. Those bots and fake human voices are composed of either real past human recordings that have been strung together to reproduce realistic human voice outputs, or they are built using ML backend systems that literally generate human voices out of thin air.

When Siri, Alexa, or our GPS use voice generation, it is usually quickly obvious that it is a bot or non-human speaking to the user. This is because virtually every legacy...
