Don't worry, the games are back — this time applied to computer security. Researchers have now mathematically formalized the strategy of computer hacking, potentially enabling anyone — governments, activist hackers, cybermafia — to determine the optimal timing of attacks."
The computer can't tell you the emotional story. It can give you the exact
mathematical design, but what's missing is the eyebrows.
