The New Economy magazine examines deepfakes, biohacking and IBM’s cloud innovation in its latest issue

LONDON, Oct. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As the world becomes more technologically advanced, solutions are rapidly developing to help businesses and policymakers with their future and present needs. One organisation that has excelled in this fast-moving environment is IBM, which has created some of the most sophisticated services in cloud computing.

In the latest issue of The New Economy, its executives Steve Robinson, General Manager of Cloud Technical Engagement, and Bala Rajaraman, CTO and Fellow, discuss hybrid cloud and multicloud solutions, and the impact that these are having on organisations’ performance – as well as global IT infrastructure.

Elsewhere in the magazine, Barclay Ballard explores the world of “deepfakes” – a term used to describe hyper realistic fake videos circulating the internet. These have been used in order to disseminate fake news and cause widespread political instability, and are created using some of the most impressive technology. In recent times, financial markets have suffered because of the “deepfake” phenomenon. What can be done to tackle this issue? Ballard explores the matter.

Later on, Elizabeth Matsangou examines the biohacking trend that has taken Silicon Valley by storm. In a space that is arguably one of the most competitive on the planet, engineers and CEOs alike are constantly seeking new ways to maximise their productivity and creativity. The advocates of so-called intermittent fasting, one of the most popular biohacks, say it affords them with greater focus and clarity, while also freeing up more precious time in the process. Smart drugs, nootropics and meal replacement drinks – Matsangou takes us through the latest movements.

Courtney Goldsmith also delves into the electrical grid. For nearly a century, its structure has remained generally unchanged, but renewable energies are challenging the existing model. What does the future look like for the industry?
