Tesla intends to open the source code of the security system of its cars for third-party manufacturers. This was announced by Elon Musk after the DEF CON conference in Las Vegas. He also thanked the participants for improving the protection of the Tesla and SpaceX software.

With the opening of the source code, the technology of protection of electric cars Tesla will be free to use any auto concern. Security software should protect cars from intruders who are able to hack electric cars and gain access to remote control.

Great Q & A at defcon last night. Thanks for helping make Tesla & SpaceX more secure! Planning to open-source Tesla vehicle security software for free use by other car makers. Extremely important to a safe self-driving future for all.

With the use of technology by competing companies, Tesla development companies can become a standard for car safety. Assistance to third-party firms in strengthening the protection of electric cars from burglary can positively affect the reputation of the company.

In May 2017, Ilon Mask announced the lack of reliability of automatic driving systems. However, according to his forecasts, in 2019 cars can already ride without the help of the driver.

Korean developers have created an algorithm that recognizes text printed on an imaginary keyboard on a touchscreen. Such a “keyboard” is not tied to a specific area on the screen, and the “keys” are not limited to clear squares.

As a result, a person types blindly in a QWERTY layout without thinking about where the keyboard should be and whether it got into the key.

According to the developers, they tried to increase the typing speed on the on-screen keyboards. The on-screen keyboard, unlike the hardware keyboard, does not offer feedback that confirms pressing. There is a risk to miss and not press the desired button. Because of this, people endlessly stare at the screen and eventually print more slowly.

The new algorithm allows you not to worry about this, you can enter text from memory, and the keyboard with 96% accuracy will guess what the person wanted to say. Tests have shown that the average typing speed on an imaginary keyboard is slightly less than on a hardware keyboard: 45 words per minute versus 51.
