The Art of Lockpicking
Not all physical locks are created equal–they come in a wide variety of different mechanisms as well as manufacturing tolerances. Every lock design has its own advantages as well as disadvantages. Special tools can be used to exploit the weaknesses in the locks in order to defeat them.
Fazli Sapuan graduated from SoC in 2016 and is presently working as a Software Engineer in Garena.
Smart Enterprise Software Empowered by Machine Learning
The talk will cover 1) how latest technologies like IoT, Machine Learning and Deep Learning change business models and processes 2) smart enterprise solutions SAP is building using Machine Learning techniques and the Machine Learning Platform that enables such solutions.
