This week on ITProPortal's Tech News Weekly, we talk about our recent trip to Russia's burgeoning startup community in Skolkovo, and whether government can create innovation out of nothing. We chat about the differences between Russia's startup community and the community in Silicon Valley, and which model we can learn more from in the UK.
Up next, we talk about hacktivists Anonymous, and their plans to take down FIFA World Cup sponsors Coca Cola, Budweiser, Adidas and others. We talk about how the hacktivist threat has spread, and what you can do to protect your business.
We also talk about Twitter's potential acquisition of Soundcloud and Spotify, and how cashflow troubles could be stalling the social network's expansion ambitions.
After that, we move on to Eugene Goostman, the AI that this week became the first one ever to beat the Turing Test, fooling judges at an artificial intelligence show into believing it was human.
We then chat a bit about E3: what's coming up in games, what the E3 schedule looks like this year, and what the next generation of video game hardware mean for the future of the software industry.
