Los Alamos, the atomic bomb labs sais they have an AI system that is quicker and reliable than other AI-methods but also they have the opportunity to fight illegal BTC mining as we are reading further in the Bitcoin news.
Los Alamos researchers have found a new way to stop crypto miners from infecting supercomputers as the miners are using computing power to secretly extract crypto such as Bitcoin. The researchers claim their AI-based solution is much more superior to more conventional protection. The researchers at Los Alamos the US science laboratory created an atomic bomb and they created an artificial intelligence system that will keep crypto miners out of supercomputers. The hackers manage to infect supercomputers with processing speeds of hundreds of thousands of times faster than the top gaming computers with crypto miners.
This kind of software watchdog will soon be crucial in preventing cryptocurrency miners from hacking into high-performance computing facilities — and stealing precious resources. https://t.co/p9iE3PEWE0 pic.twitter.com/yyjsbTnMsV

The idea is to suck the power and use it to mine cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin as they are the source of supercomputer operators that preside over computational power that is most of the time reserved for top scientific researchers. At least a dozen European supercomputers had to shut down because of mining attacks back in May. The affected ones could appreciate the work of the computer scientists ad Los Alamos laboratory that devised an artificial intelligence system to stop these attacks from doing what they are doing. They explained in their paper dubbed “Code Characterization with Graph Convolutions and Capsule Networks” that other systems try to search for malicious code but the Lab makes sure that the supercomputer runs only programs that will be running on the hardware.
According to a blog post:
“instead of finding a match to a known criminal program, however, the system checks to determine whether a graph is among those that identify programs that are supposed to be running on the system.”
In the other BTC, mining news reported, Miners, sell more BTC as the mining difficulty is getting close to the 17 T zone because their jobs are getting more difficult and they are spending more of their coins. The BTC miners sell more coins as the difficulty rises. This metric measures how hard it is to compete for mining rewards while it hit 0.59% but that was not enough to push it over the 17 T level, raising it to 16.95 T.
