Alojamientos web: qué son y cuántas clases existen

Si alguna vez te has planteado montar una web 'en serio' (para algún proyecto profesional, por ejemplo) te habrás planteado qué necesitas contar para ponerte a ello. En primer lugar, sin duda, te habrán hablado de los dominios, la dirección de Internet que usamos para acceder a una u otra página web, o para enviar un e-mail a uno u otro usuario (genbeta.com, gmail.com, uned.es, un.org, etc).

Pero estos dominios sólo son una puerta de acceso a una determinada serie de contenidos. Estos contenidos (código HTML / PHP, imágenes, animaciones...) deben estar localizados en un espacio físico, lo que llamamos 'hosting' o 'alojamiento web'. Los archivos que componen nuestra web se alojan en las unidades de disco de servidores, propiedad de nuestros proveedores de hosting, alojados por lo general en grandes centros de datos.

¿Qué alojamiento elijo entonces?

Nuestros proveedores no sólo nos ofrecerán espacio para los archivos de la web, sino también otros servicios complementarios como el envío de emails, acceso FTP para facilitar la actualización del sitio, bases de datos que nos permitan instalar gestores de contenidos (como Wordpress), paneles de configuración, etc. En casi todos los casos, también nos facilitarán la reserva de dominios, pero si lo deseamos podemos usar los de otro proveedor.

Sabiendo eso, llega el momento de elegir el tipo de alojamiento que queremos para nuestro proyecto web. Es posible que la primera opción en la que pensemos sea un servicio de hosting gratuito, del tipo de Blogspot, Wix o Weebly... pero, aunque interesantes para dar nuestros primeros pasos en la gestión de sitios web, esta clase de alojamientos suele carecer de las funcionalidades y la flexibilidad necesarias para ofrecer una presencia web profesional.

Repasemos, por tanto, cuáles son las principales categorías en que se dividen los alojamientos web.

1) Alojamiento web compartido

El más económico, y por ello aquel por el que optan la mayoría de los usuarios. Esto se debe a que compartimos gastos compartiendo recursos: nuestros sitios web se alojan en el mismo servidor que los de otros clientes del proveedor de alojamiento (y comparten también, por tanto, dirección IP).

Es la opción más recomendable para aquellas webs sin requisitos de funcionamiento destacables y que no acostumbren a tener un número de visitas mensuales muy elevado.

El problema es que, al compartir servidor, las acciones de nuestros 'vecinos' repercutirán sobre nosotros: si la web de otro cliente es utilizada para el envío de spam, su IP (que también es la nuestra, recordemos) entrará a engrosar listas negras de Internet, dando como resultado que los internautas tengan problema para acceder a nuestra web, o que los e-mails que enviemos no lleguen a su destino.

2) VPS (Servidor Privado Virtual)

Si el alojamiento compartido viene a ser el equivalente a compartir piso, con el VPS (siglas en inglés de 'servidor privado virtual') pasamos a vivir en un bloque de pisos, en el que la existencia de recursos comunes no es óbice para vivir con completa autonomía.

El proveedor recurre a técnicas de virtualización para dividir un servidor físico en varios servidores virtuales, que compartimentalizan los recursos del primero y a los que sólo nosotros tendremos acceso. Si tu proyecto web requiere de más recursos y de una mayor personalización de la que puede proporcionarte el alojamiento compartido, el VPS es la opción que deberías elegir.

Eso sí: ten en cuenta que su coste aumentará ligeramente (en la mayoría de los casos un VPS básico sigue siendo una opción económica)... pero que la complejidad para configurar y mantener el servidor subirá varios peldaños a no ser que paguemos extra por delegar dicha tarea.

Datacenter Los datacenters como el de la foto pueden alojar cada cientos de servidores (las máquinas que alojan los sitios web). // Imagen: Pixabay.

3) Servidor dedicado

En este caso, el bloque de pisos se ha compartido en un chalet para nosotros solos. Se trata de eso: de un servidor físico que no tenemos que compartir con ningún otro cliente, lo que le aísla de cualquier fallo de seguridad que pueda provocar un tercero, y le proporciona acceso total a las configuraciones del equipo y al software instalado en él.

¿Problema? El precio, por supuesto. De modo que si tu web no tiene altos requisitos de rendimiento no deberías ni plantearte esta opción.

4) Cloud hosting

El alojamiento en la nube es una opción cada vez más habitual, aunque muchos proveedores aún no lo prestan. Siguiendo con los paralelismos habitacionales, viene a ser como carecer de casa propia pero poder contar con un piso turístico en cada ciudad que visitemos... incluso si cada miembro de la familia decide viajar por separado. Más o menos.

La idea es que en realidad nuestra web no estará en un único servidor, sino distribuida entre varios servidores interconectados. Esto permite adaptar los recursos a las necesidades de cada momento, por lo que es bueno absorbiendo picos repentinos de tráfico.

Esta opción permite ajustar más el precio, pues se paga sólo por los servicios que usemos y no por paquetes preestablecidos, pero aún así su precio es bastante elevado, y no son fáciles de gestionar.

Una última cosa a tener en cuenta...

Además de la tecnología que hay detrás de cada uno de estos alojamientos, a la hora de elegir una u otra oferta deberemos tener en cuenta qué nos ofrecen.

No porque un VPS sea una opción más avanzada que un alojamiento compartido significa necesariamente que cualquier oferta de VPS vaya a ofrecer más espacio en disco, más bases de datos o mayor volumen de transferencia de datos que una oferta de alojamiento compartido.

Deberemos tener en cuenta todas esas características (y varias más) a la hora de valorar cuál es la mejor opción para nuestra web.

System of System Composition Based on Decentralized Service-Oriented Architecture

 Cache   
As society has progressed through periods of evolution and revolution, technology has played a key role as an enabler. In the same manner, mechanical machines of the 1800s drove the industrial revolution, now digitalized machines are driving another industrial revolution. Manufacturers are increasing the digital footprint on the factory floor. It is challenging to harness the vast amounts of data generated, stored, analyzed, archived, and returned. Data centralization has several well-known challenges, such as collection bottlenecks, secure retrieval, single point of failure, and data scheme fragility as data heterogeneity increases. This paper proposes a method of information distribution based on the principle of data at its source. It proposes that contextual data be used at runtime through the creation of dynamic queries that build compositions of different systems. Such system of systems (SoS) compositions handle the flow of data across its life cycle and present it as information to the initiating system. The proposal starts by creating a graph model of the Arrowhead framework. Then, building on the graph model, the query-based approach for specifying, validating, and forming the SoS is proposed. The proposed graph model allows for unambiguous description of systems and their interrelations, including security relations. The proposed composer operates on the edge computing hardware and gives the production floor the ability to extract information without impacting the overall operation of the factory.
          

H$^2$—A Hybrid Heterogeneity Aware Resource Orchestrator for Cloud Platforms

 Cache   
Cloud computing services are provided through datacenters that consume significant amount of energy and contribute to global warming. Largely, resources are unused due to low service demand, in principal, wasting energy and resources. Energy could be saved through efficient resource management systems; that is of utmost importance, particularly, when service providers use various kinds of sand-boxing technologies, such as bare-metal, virtual machine and/or containers to provide quality services to users. The lack of a single resource manager creates questions on infrastructure energy efficiency and service performance. In this paper, we investigate the possibility of using a single resource manager to manage datacenter heterogeneous resources, energy, and performance (hence cost) efficiently. Our evaluation suggests that $sim$30.47% energy could be saved at cost of only 2.14% loss in performance through using a single scheduler instead of multiple schedulers.
          

Cost-Efficient Service Function Chain Orchestration for Low-Latency Applications in NFV Networks

 Cache   
With the popularization and development of cloud computing, network function virtualization and service function chain (SFC) provisioning have attracted increasing attention from researchers. Excellent and reliable network service is important for network development. Moreover, as the number of network users increases, network service construction costs become very high. Therefore, an efficient algorithm is necessary to provide an SFC with excellent performance and low resource costs. In this paper, we re-examine the problem of optimizing the deployment of an SFC to provide users with excellent and resource-saving network service. We propose a heuristic, closed-loop feedback (CLF) algorithm to find the shortest path to map an SFC. To solve the problem, we introduce and integrate a restricted Boltzmann machine and cross entropy to improve the performance of CLF. Simulation results demonstrate the excellent performance of CLF. The communication delay is reduced by approximately 20%, the accept ratio improves by approximately 15%, and the algorithm running time decreases by approximately 20%. In addition, the resource utilization ratio increases by approximately 15%, and the resource fragmentation ratio decreases by approximately 50%.

Covert Channels-Based Stealth Attacks in Industry 4.0

 Cache   
Industry 4.0 advent opens several cyber-threats scenarios originally designed for classic information technology (IT), drawing the attention to serious risks for the modern industrial control networks. To cope with this problem, in this paper, we address the security issues related to covert channels applied to industrial networks, identifying the new vulnerability points when ITs converge with operational technologies such as edge computing infrastructures. Specifically, we define two signaling strategies where we exploit the Modbus/transmission control protocol (TCP) as target to set up a covert channel. Once the threat channel is established, passive and active offensive methodologies are further exploited by implementing and testing them on a real industrial Internet of Things testbed. The experimental results highlight the potential damage of such specific threats and the easy extrapolation of the attacks to other types of channels in order to show the new risks for the Industry 4.0. Related to this, we discuss some countermeasures offering an overview of possible mitigation and defensive measures.

Mobile Cloud Storage Over 5G: A Mechanism Design Approach

 Cache   
In order to meet the increasing demand for the data storage, 5G wireless networks embodying mobile edge computing (MEC) features arise as a compelling solution. In this paper, the dense heterogeneous network (HetNet) and the MEC infrastructure are exploited to propose a mobile cloud storage framework that minimizes the data transmission delay. The proposed framework is composed of two parts: A data management with error correction (DMEC) scheme, and a radio resource management (RRM) scheme. The DMEC scheme, derived from the redundant array of inexpensive disks (RAID) technology, is implemented in the user equipment (UE) side, and it intelligently exploits the overlapping coverage of HetNet to minimize the transmission delay. On the other hand, the RRM scheme, based on mechanism design, presents the physical resource block allocation problem as a graph coloring problem and performs the radio resource allocation in multiuser scenario to maximize the network performance. The RRM scheme also comprises a pricing algorithm, which calculates the price a UE needs to pay for the resources. The proposed RRM scheme exhibits several desirable characteristics such as incentive compatibility, efficiency, and truthfulness, all derived from the Vickrey–Clarke–Groves mechanism. Simulation results are presented, showing that the proposed framework when compared to baseline techniques, minimizes the transmission delay by $10^2$%, which places our proposal as effective and efficient solution for the mobile cloud storage problem.
          

Task Execution Cost Minimization-Based Joint Computation Offloading and Resource Allocation for Cellular D2D MEC Systems

 Cache   
The rapid proliferation of new applications poses great challenges to the computation capability of mobile devices. To tackle this problem, computation offloading was proposed as a promising paradigm. In this paper, we consider a cellular device-to-device (D2D) mobile edge computing (MEC) system consisting of one base station (BS) deployed with an MEC server and users. We assume that a portion of users have task computation requirements and may perform local computing, MEC offloading, or D2D offloading. Further assuming that tasks can be partitioned into small-sized data and can be executed simultaneously via various computation modes, we jointly study computation offloading and resource allocation problem. To achieve efficient information interaction and task management, we first propose a joint task management architecture. Defining task execution cost as the weighted sum of task execution latency and energy consumption, we then formulate the joint optimization problem as a task execution cost minimization problem. As the formulated problem is a mixed integer nonlinear problem, which cannot be solved conveniently, we propose a heuristic algorithm that successively solves computation offloading subproblem and resource allocation subproblem by Kuhn–Munkres algorithm and Lagrangian dual method, respectively. Numerical results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
          

Fair Congestion Control Protocol for Data Center Bridging

 Cache   
Data center networking brought a new era of data-intensive applications such as remote direct memory access, high-performance computing, and cloud computing, which raise new challenges for network researchers. Such applications require minimum network latency, no packet loss, and fairness between flows. Therefore, IEEE Data Center Bridging Task Group presents several enhancements for Ethernet networks to fulfill these requirements. In this context, we investigate the possibility of achieving dropless Ethernet. We extend our previously proposed congestion control protocol, named Heterogeneous Flow (HetFlow), to achieve minimum queue length and consequently minimum network latency. In addition, we present a mathematical model, stability analysis, and scalability study of the proposed protocol.

Moreover, it is illustrated by simulations that HetFlow improves fairness between flows of different packet sizes and different round trip times.
          

Провальное внедрение цифровой системы социального обеспечения в Великобритании наносит удар по самым нуждающимся

Правительство Великобритании приступило к реализации амбициозной стратегии перехода на автоматизированную систему предоставления услуг социального обеспечения. Однако неоправданно завышенная ставка на цифровые технологии и безоглядное доверие к ним грозит дальнейшим разрушением системы социальной защиты.

В прошлом месяце Специальный докладчик Организации Объединенных Наций по вопросу о крайней нищете и правах человека и правозащитная организация Human Rights Watch опубликовали свои выводы о бедности в Великобритании, документально подтвердив влияние политики жесткой экономии на права беднейших слоев населения британского общества. Автор доклада ООН профессор Филипп Алстон, в частности, предупреждает, что «британское социальное государство постепенно теряется за веб-страницей и алгоритмом».

Переход служб соцобеспечения страны к цифровым технологиям тесно связан с мерами жесткой экономии, направленными на сокращение расходов на социальную помощь и другие базовые государственные услуги, и проходит на фоне кардинальной перестройки сферы социального обеспечения. В 2012 году правительство внедрило систему единой ежемесячной социальной выплаты «Universal Credit», объединившую в себе шесть видов пособий.  

Система «Universal Credit» задумывалась как «цифровая по определению»: оформление пособий и все связанные с ними операции осуществляются главным образом через интернет-портал, а оффлайновые способы получения пособий постепенно упраздняются. По утверждению Министерства труда и пенсий, в ведении которого находится «Universal Credit», перевод работы с пособиями в онлайн режим «облегчит их получение» и «удешевит администрирование». 

Однако на практике введение «Universal Credit» наглядно продемонстрировало несовместимость технологических амбиций правительства с правами ряда наиболее уязвимых слоев населения страны. В докладе ООН отмечается, что многие претенденты на получение соцпомощи и ее получатели, не обладающие достаточными навыками компьютерной грамотности или не имеющие дома интернета, испытывают трудности с оформлением и получением пособий онлайн. Растущий спрос на техническую помощь и бесплатные компьютерные услуги, связанный с оформлением «Universal Credit», превратил публичные библиотеки в импровизированные кризисные центры – роль, к которой библиотеки неготовы в связи с нехваткой персонала и сокращением бюджета.

Счетной палатой Великобритании был поднят ряд важных вопросов, таких как: (1) действительно ли система «Universal Credit» экономит деньги или же она создает дополнительные расходы; (2) предоставило ли правительство необходимую поддержку местным органам власти, участвующим в администрировании «Universal Credit» и помогающим людям с получением пособий. Для правительства такие вопросы не новость: парламентарии и представители местных органов власти систематически сообщают о нехватке ресурсов для поддержания «цифровой по определению» системы.

С автоматизацией ключевых звеньев «Universal Credit» возрос риск ошибочного отказа в получении основных пособий. После реализации правительственной инициативы по автоматизации процедуры удостоверения личности, только 38% заявителей на получение социальной помощи и ее получателей смогли успешно пройти проверку (данные по состоянию на март 2018 года). Чтобы пройти верификацию, осуществляемую сертифицированными частными компаниями, необходимо предоставить такую информацию, как финансовые отчеты, телефонные счета и иммиграционные документы. Однако, как отмечают общественные организации по оказанию помощи населению, у многих заявителей и получателей пособий либо попросту нет этих документов, либо они не могут предоставить требуемую информацию онлайн.

В результате ошибок автоматизированной системы получатели пособий зачастую попадают в сложные ситуации и испытывают финансовые затруднения. Несвоевременная или неточная информация о заработной плате, предоставленная работодателями, приводит к задержке и сокращению платежей, а на выяснение и исправление порой уходят недели. Ошибки чреваты тяжелыми последствиями для получателей пособий, которые и без того находятся в бедственном положении, с трудом в состоянии прокормить детей и еле сводят концы с концами. Правительство, внеся предложения об изменениях, призванных исправить эти ошибки, в то же время призналось, что не знает «как это будет работать на практике».

Великобритания не одинока в своих проблемах с цифровыми технологиями в сфере соцобеспечения. Число стран, в которых аналогичные начинания потерпели неудачу, растет. В Индии миллионам бедных семей было отказано в продуктовом пайке из-за того, что они были не в состоянии удовлетворить требованиям цифровой верификации личности. Когда в США и Канаде для обработки заявок на выплату пособий по социальному обеспечению муниципальные власти заменили социальных работников автоматизированными системами, возросло количество недополученных выплат и отказов в пособиях. В Мичигане из-за конструкторских дефектов автоматизированной государственной системы выявления фактов мошенничества тысячи заявителей на пособие по безработице и его получателей были ложно обвинены в мошенничестве.

В Великобритании технические сбои системы становятся причиной дополнительных проблем и тягот для получателей соцпомощи, положение которых и без того осложнилось введением санкций за невыполнение требований по трудоустройству и сокращением льгот и пособий в последние десять лет.

Несмотря на эти тревожные сигналы, правительство упорно продолжает проталкивать  процесс перевода системы соцобеспечения на рельсы цифровых технологий. В стадии разработки находится и «полностью автоматизированная» система выявления мошенничества. Однако правительству следует сначала исправить недостатки в уже внедренных системах – в противном случае власти рискуют снова и снова повторять все те же ошибки. Помимо этого, все доработки и модернизации не должны отвлекать внимание правительства от неотложной задачи по пересмотру основополагающих положений системы «Universal Credit» и целого ряда принятых им мер, таких как замораживание платежей, введение штрафов и лимитов на предельную сумму пособий.

Без реформы системы социального обеспечения, направленной на устранение коренных причин нищеты, голода и бездомности, автоматизация и другие технологии могут привести лишь к дальнейшему усугублению этих явлений.

BLOT: Bandit Learning-Based Offloading of Tasks in Fog-Enabled Networks

 Cache   
Task offloading is a promising technology to exploit the available computational resources in spatially distributed fog nodes efficiently in the era of fog computing. In this paper, we look for an online task offloading strategy to minimize the long-term cost, which factors in the latency, the energy consumption, and the switching cost. To this end, we formulate a stochastic programming problem and the expectations of the system parameters are allowed to change abruptly at unknown time instants. Meanwhile, we consider the fact that the queried nodes can only feed back the processing results after finishing the tasks. Then we put forth an effective bandit learning algorithm, i.e., the BLOT, to solve this challenging stochastic programming under the non-stationary bandit model. We also demonstrate that our proposed BLOT algorithm is asymptotically optimal in a non-stationary fog-enabled network. Numerical experiments further verify the superb performance of BLOT.
          

Efficient and Scalable Functional Dependency Discovery on Distributed Data-Parallel Platforms

 Cache   
Functional dependencies (FDs) play a very important role in many data management tasks such as schema normalization, data cleaning, and query optimization. Meanwhile, there are ever-increasing application demands for efficient FD discovery on large-scale datasets. Unfortunately, due to huge runtime and memory overhead, the existing single-machine FD discovery algorithms are inefficient for large-scale datasets. Recently, distributed data-parallel computing has become the de facto standard for large-scale data processing. However, it is challenging to design an efficient distributed FD discovery algorithm. In this paper, we present SmartFD, which is an efficient and scalable algorithm for distributed FD discovery. First, we propose a novel attribute sorting-based algorithm framework. Next, to discover all the FDs grouped by a given attribute, we propose an efficient distributed algorithm Attribute-centric Functional Dependency Discovery (AFDD). In AFDD, we design an Fast Sampling and Early Aggregation (FSEA) mechanism to improve the efficiency of distributed sampling and propose a memory-efficient index-based method for distributed FD validation. Moreover, AFDD employs an attribute-parallel method to accelerate the pruning-and-generation of candidate FDs. Furthermore, we propose an adaptive switching strategy between distributed sampling and distributed validation based on the unified time-based efficiency metric. Also, we employ a distributed probing based method to make the switching strategy more accurate. Experimental results on Apache Spark reveal that SmartFD outperforms the state-of-the-art single-machine algorithm HyFD and the existing distributed algorithm HFDD with 3.2×–44.9× and 2.5×–455.7× speedup respectively. Moreover, SmartFD achieves good row scalability and column scalability. Additionally, SmartFD has sub-linear node scalability.
          

GPU-Job Migration: The rCUDA Case

 Cache   
Virtualization techniques have been shown to report benefits to data centers and other computing facilities. In this regard, not only virtual machines allow to reduce the size of the computing infrastructure while increasing overall resource utilization, but also virtualizing individual components of computers may provide significant benefits. This is the case, for instance, for the remote GPU virtualization technique, implemented in several frameworks during the recent years. The large degree of flexibility provided by the remote GPU virtualization technique can be further increased by applying the migration mechanism to it, so that the GPU part of applications can be live-migrated to another GPU elsewhere in the cluster during execution time in a transparent way. In this paper we present the implementation of the migration mechanism within the rCUDA remote GPU virtualization middleware. Furthermore, we present a thorough performance analysis of the implementation of the migration mechanism within rCUDA. To that end, we leverage both synthetic and real production applications as well as three different generations of NVIDIA GPUs. Additionally, two different versions of the InfiniBand interconnect are used in this study. Several use cases are provided in order to show the extraordinary benefits that the GPU-job migration mechanism can report to data centers.
          

ISEE: An Intelligent Scene Exploration and Evaluation Platform for Large-Scale Visual Surveillance

 Cache   
Intelligent video surveillance (IVS) is always an interesting research topic to utilize visual analysis algorithms for exploring richly structured information from big surveillance data. However, existing IVS systems either struggle to utilize computing resources adequately to improve the efficiency of large-scale video analysis, or present a customized system for specific video analytic functions. It still lacks of a comprehensive computing architecture to enhance efficiency, extensibility and flexibility of IVS system. Moreover, it is also an open problem to study the effect of the combinations of multiple vision modules on the final performance of end applications of IVS system. Motivated by these challenges, we develop an Intelligent Scene Exploration and Evaluation (ISEE) platform based on a heterogeneous CPU-GPU cluster and some distributed computing tools, where Spark Streaming serves as the computing engine for efficient large-scale video processing and Kafka is adopted as a middle-ware message center to decouple different analysis modules flexibly. To validate the efficiency of the ISEE and study the evaluation problem on composable systems, we instantiate the ISEE for an end application on person retrieval with three visual analysis modules, including pedestrian detection with tracking, attribute recognition and re-identification. Extensive experiments are performed on a large-scale surveillance video dataset involving 25 camera scenes, totally 587 hours 720p synchronous videos, where a two-stage question-answering procedure is proposed to measure the performance of execution pipelines composed of multiple visual analysis algorithms based on millions of attribute-based and relationship-based queries. The case study of system-level evaluations may inspire researchers to improve visual analysis algorithms and combining strategies from the view of a scalable and composable system in the future.
          

Multi-Hop Cooperative Computation Offloading for Industrial IoT–Edge–Cloud Computing Environments

 Cache   
The concept of the industrial Internet of things (IIoT) is being widely applied to service provisioning in many domains, including smart healthcare, intelligent transportation, autopilot, and the smart grid. However, because of the IIoT devices’ limited onboard resources, supporting resource-intensive applications, such as 3D sensing, navigation, AI processing, and big-data analytics, remains a challenging task. In this paper, we study the multi-hop computation-offloading problem for the IIoT–edge–cloud computing model and adopt a game-theoretic approach to achieving Quality of service (QoS)-aware computation offloading in a distributed manner. First, we study the computation-offloading and communication-routing problems with the goal of minimizing each task's computation time and energy consumption, formulating the joint problem as a potential game in which the IIoT devices determine their computation-offloading strategies. Second, we apply a free–bound mechanism that can ensure a finite improvement path to a Nash equilibrium. Third, we propose a multi-hop cooperative-messaging mechanism and develop two QoS-aware distributed algorithms that can achieve the Nash equilibrium. Our simulation results show that our algorithms offer a stable performance gain for IIoT in various scenarios and scale well as the device size increases.
          

On Runtime Communication and Thermal-Aware Application Mapping and Defragmentation in 3D NoC Systems

 Cache   
Many-core systems connected by 3D Networks-on-Chip (NoC) are emerging as a promising computation engine for systems like cloud computing servers, big data systems, etc. Mapping applications at runtime to 3D NoCs is the key to maintain high throughput of the overall chip under a thermal/power constraint. However, the goals of optimizing both the communication latency and chip peak temperature are contradicting due to several reasons. First, exploiting the vertical TSV links can accelerate communications, while low peak temperature prefers that the tasks to be mapped closer to the heat sink, instead of using the vertical links. Second, mapping tasks in close proximity can reduce communication latency, but at the cost of poor heat dissipation. To address these issues, in this paper, we propose an efficient runtime mapping algorithm to reduce both communication latency and overall application running time under thermal constraint. In essence, this algorithm first selects a 3D cuboid core region of a specific shape for each incoming application by setting the region's number of occupied vertical layers and its distance to the heat sink, in order to optimize its communication performance and peak temperature. Next, the exact locations of the core regions in the chip are determined, followed by a task-to-core mapping. A defragmentation algorithm is also proposed to keep free core regions contiguous. The experimental results have confirmed that, compared to two recently proposed runtime mapping algorithms, our proposed approach can reduce the total running time by up to 48% and communication cost by up to 44%, with a low runtime overhead.
          

Optimizing Finite Volume Method Solvers on Nvidia GPUs

 Cache   
As scientific applications are increasingly ported to GPUs to benefit from both the powerful computing capacity and high throughput, accelerating explicit solvers for GPU-based finite volume methods is gaining more and more attention. In this paper, based on the detailed analysis of the FVM algorithm, we present a set of novel optimization methods, including the explicit data cache mechanism, optimal global memory loading strategy, as well as the inner-thread rescheduling method, which derives a suitable mapping from the solver algorithm to the underlying GPU hardware architecture, so as to remarkably improve the solving performance of structured mesh based FVM. We demonstrate the impact of our tuning techniques on two widely-used atmospheric dynamic kernels (3-D Euler and 2-D SWE) on five kinds of mainstream GPU platforms, and make a detailed analysis of the different tuning methodologies so as to demonstrate how to select the proper tuning strategy to different applications on various GPU platforms. Specifically, 93.9x speedup is achieved for the 3D Euler solver on Nvidia V100 over one 12-core Intel E5-2697 (v2) CPU, which is a 77 percent improvement compared with the original speedup without adopting the tuning techniques presented in this work.
          

Resource-Aware Scheduling for Dependable Multicore Real-Time Systems: Utilization Bound and Partitioning Algorithm

 Cache   
As the computing devices and software executions are susceptible to manifold faults, fault tolerance has been an important research topic in safety-critical real-time systems. Moreover, multicore processors have recently emerged as prevailing computing engines for modern embedded systems. However, there exists rather rare work on the fault-tolerant scheduling of real-time tasks executing on multicores with shared resources, where the task synchronization originated from resource access contention may significantly degrade the schedulability of task system. With the focus on the partitioned-EDF scheduler with the MSRP (Multiprocessor Stack Resource Policy) protocol and primary/backup recovery mechanism, we first investigate a utilization bound and then identify its anomaly where the bound may decrease when more cores are deployed. Next, following the insights gained by the analysis of the bound, we propose a reliability and synchronization aware task partitioning algorithm (RSA-TPA) together with an efficient version to implement the joint management of task synchronization and system reliability, where several resource-oriented heuristics are developed to improve both the schedulability performance and workload balancing. The extensive simulation results show that the RSA-TPA schemes can obtain higher acceptance ratio (e.g., 60 percent more) and generate more balanced partitions, when compared to the existing schemes that consider either reliability management or task synchronization. Finally, with the different fault arrival rates being considered, the actual implementation in Linux kernel further demonstrates the applicability of RSA-TPA that has lower run-time overhead (e.g., 20 percent less) in comparison with other mapping algorithms.
          

T-Gaming: A Cost-Efficient Cloud Gaming System at Scale

 Cache   
Cloud gaming (CG) system could pursue both high-quality gaming experience via intensive computing, and ultimate convenience anywhere at anytime through any energy-constrained mobile devices. Despite the abundance of efforts devoted, state-of-the-art CG systems still suffer from multiple key limitations: expensive deployment cost, high bandwidth consumption and unsatisfied quality of experience (QoE). As a result, existing works are not widely adopted in reality. This paper proposes a Transparent Gaming framework called T-Gaming that allows users to play any popular high-end desktop/console games on-the-fly over the Internet. T-Gaming utilizes the off-the-shelf consumer GPUs without resorting to the expensive proprietary GPU virtualization (vGPU) technology to reduce the deployment cost. Moreover, it enables prioritized video encoding based on the human visual feature to reduce the bandwidth consumption without noticeable visual quality degradation. Last but not least, T-Gaming adopts adaptive real-time streaming based on deep reinforcement learning (RL) to improve user's QoE. To evaluate the performance of T-Gaming, we implement and test a prototype system in the real world. Compared with the existing cloud gaming systems, T-Gaming not only reduces the expense per user by 75 percent hardware cost reduction and 14.3 percent network cost reduction, but also improves the normalized average QoE by 3.6-27.9 percent.

I Ditched My PC For Raspberry Pi 4 Model B For A Week: Review

 Cache   

The Raspberry PI 4 Model B Single Board Computer (SBC) is a great computing device; almost every computer geek on the knows that. This is why the $35 priced ultra-small computer is now available in its 4th iteration and is more powerful than ever.

After receiving my review unit from Seeed Studios, a Shenzen based global supplier of electronics, I decided to ditch my Ryzen powered desktop PC in favor of the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B (4GB variant) for a week.

Having used the first version of Raspberry Pi before, I knew the kind of performance I’d be getting on the Raspberry Pi 4. However, I was quite surprised by the upgraded performance of the Raspberry Pi 4 as it was a huge step up from the first Pi board when it came out.

So here’s what happened when I decided to spend a week with the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B (4 GB variant).

Raspberry Pi 4 Model B: Performance Review

Raspberry Pi 4 Model B My Desktop PC
CPU Broadcom BCM2711B0 Quad-Core A72 AMD Ryzen 7 1700 8 Core
GPU Broadcom VideoCore VI Nvidia GTX 1080
RAM 4 GB LPDDR4 16 GB DDR4
Storage Type 16 GB 2.2 TB
Storage MicroSD SSD
Ports 2 X micro HDMI, 2 X USB 2.0, 2 X USB 3.0, Ethernet slot, USB-C, 3.5 MM jack A Lot

I’d sum up the performance difference between the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B and my desktop PC by simply saying that the former runs Minecraft (Pi edition) at 40 FPS and my rig runs DOOM (2016) at more than 140 FPS.

Despite this huge performance difference, the Raspberry Pi 4 performed really well in day to day task. I used the Raspbian desktop version with all the necessary OS software installed. Most of my work involves using Google Docs or WordPress to write and use the browser for research.

Also, I’d like to mention the design changes in the Raspberry Pi 4 which have enabled some new features. The older single full-size HDMI port has been replaced with two micro-HDMI ports. They are a hassle if you don’t own a micro-HDMI cable, but these new changes do allow the Raspberry Pi 4 to power dual monitors.

Raspberry Pi comes with the Chromium browser and it works fine, for the most part. The only difficulty I had was while editing articles as Grammarly Chrome extension isn’t available in the Chromium browser on Raspberry Pi.

The Raspberry Pi 4 gets the upgraded A72 cortex over the A53 ones, which offers more performance per clock.

I had to write my report in a word processor and then copy it in a different tab running Grammarly, to be able to edit out mistakes. Besides this particular problem, I didn’t miss the Chrome browser at all. From watching YouTube videos to surfing the web, the Raspberry Pi performed quite well.

You can watch a video in 1080p in one tab and use Google docs in another to edit a 3000-word article with only minor dips in performance. Pi 4 did start choking when I used any photo editing software like the Canva or Vectr. Although the file size of photos was around 7 MB so I was expecting this performance drop.

While editing small photos under 2 MB file size, the Raspberry Pi 4 worked amazingly well. The only performance-related complaint that I had with the Pi 4 was in the case of thermals. My 4 GB version reached upwards of 60 degrees under the moderate-to-heavy workload.

I really wanted to overclock the Raspberry Pi 4 but the absence of a proper heat sink made me avoid that decision. I’d recommend overclocking your Raspberry Pi because the Broadcom BCM2711B0 SoC is capable of some great performance. You can safely do that by grabbing any one of the active cooling enabled CPU heat sinks available in the market.

Most of my daily usage went by quite smoothly. Granted you need to wait a bit longer before an image is processed or a Google doc is fully opened, but those are kind of expected when the thing powering your two desktops is smaller than an average donut.

Raspberry Pi 4: Everyday Greatness

The Raspberry Pi 4 is a significant upgrade over its previous generation and absolutely nails in terms of performance, considering its size. If you want to do simple computing tasks like browsing the internet, editing some documents or watching an online video, then Raspberry Pi 4 is the best thing you can buy in under $100.

It goes without saying but the Raspberry Pi 4 is infinitely versatile. Thousands of online projects are solid proof of that.

So there’s no need to think twice about one. Everyone needs a Raspberry Pi in their life, the sooner the better.

A photo of a computer cluster

Carnegie Mellon University has received a supercomputer from Los Alamos National Lab (LANL) that will be reconstructed into a computing cluster operated by the Parallel Data Lab (PDL) and housed in the Data Center Observatory. This new cluster will augment the existing Narwhal, also from LANL and made up of parts of the decommissioned Roadrunner supercomputer technology, the fastest supercomputer in the world from June 2008 to June 2009.

This new supercomputer, tentatively named Wolf, will be an important part of educating CMU's next generation of computer science professionals, researchers and educators. The system recently was retired from LANL's open institutional computing environment. While no longer efficient for simulation science, it still has high value as a training tool and for computer science research. Wolf is made up of 616 computing nodes, each containing two eight-core Intel Xeon Sandy Bridge processors, totaling 9,856 processing cores across the entire cluster. The cluster interconnect is QDR InfiniBand, providing a network that is 30 times faster than Narwhal. Altogether, it will have the capability of about 200 teraflops, where one teraflop represents one trillion computations per second.

"Wolf's processing cores are each significantly faster than the previous system, and it consists of about 50 percent more computing nodes," said George Amvrosiadis, assistant research professor of electrical and computer engineering and the Parallel Data Lab (PDL). "We will be retiring the Narwhal nodes. Our experienced PDL team, with Jason Boles leading the installation effort, is doing this gradually to make sure everything works as expected."

In the five years since they received Narwhal from LANL, the researchers of the Parallel Data Lab have developed several projects with the computing cluster in service of educating the world's next thought leaders in several areas of computer science including: scalable storage, cloud computing, machine learning and operating systems.

#26 Ett överlägset kvantdatoravsnitt

 Cache   

Kvantöverlägsenhet innebär slutet för kryptovalutor och kvantdatorer kommer att för ändra vår värld till oigenkännlighet! Eller är det verkligen så enkelt? Nu efter Googles artikel om kvantöverlägsenhet (quantum supremacy) har kvantdatorer hamnat i fokus men vad innebär egentligen denna milstolpe? Vi försöker reda ut detta, vad kvantdatorer kan användas till och hur deras framtid ser ut.

A sea rescue operation system based on LoRa

 Cache   
A sea rescue operation system based on LoRa Dehda, PS; Jayram, S; Abu Mahfouz, Adnan MI; Ouahada, K Current Personal Flotation Devices (PFD), such as life jackets, are equipped with reflective tape and water- activated LED units. As technology advances, it is imperative that safety equipment is enhanced as well This motivates the use of Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) technology, such as LoRa (Long Range), to allow for easier detection of individuals when disaster strikes at sea. The methodology involves developing a transmitter device, to be placed in a life jacket and a receiver device ,to be placed in a sea rescue helicopter. MultiTech 's range of LoRa enabled modules were used This includes the LoRa mCard, MultiTech MultiConnect Conduit, LoRa mDot and the MultiTech micro developer kit Sensors placed in the life jacket were that of a pulse sensor, water sensor and GPS sensor. It was found that within a 4 km range, the transmitter transmitted data to the receiver within 1.9 ms. The GPS sensor provided the latitude and longitude of the user with an error margin of 7 meters. The pulse sensor produced a BPM value which was 98% accurate compared to the wrist method test of finding ones BPM. Therefore, in this paper, the authors designed and implemented a sea rescue system which depicted how LoRa can be utilized in such an application and shows how it can be used to transfer data from a device attached to a PFD to a receiver placed in a sea rescue helicopter. Hence and so forth, the use of water sensors, GPS sensors and pulse sensors have been attached to a transmitter device found in a life jacket which then transfer live information to a receiver placed in a sea rescue helicopter. The overall aim of the system is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of current sea rescue operations.

Powering stereo vision with FPGAs

 Cache   
Tags:

Dr Konstantin Schauwecker, CEO of Nerian Vision, describes the firm’s stereo vision sensor for fast depth perception with FPGAs

Fast and accurate three-dimensional perception is a common requirement for many applications in robotics, industrial automation, quality assurance, logistics and many other fields. Today, active 3D camera systems, which rely on emitting light in the visible or invisible spectral range, are widely used for realising such applications.

Under controlled conditions, these systems can provide very accurate measurements. In difficult lighting situations, however, they reach their limits. Depth perception using active camera systems is only possible if the emitted light can clearly outshine the ambient light. However, this is difficult to achieve in bright environments, like bright daylight. For applications such as automated logistics and mobile service robotics, where the prevailing lighting conditions often cannot be controlled, other sensors must be used. Another problem for active sensors is measuring over distance: the greater the distance, the larger the area to be illuminated.

A possible alternative is passive stereo vision. The environment is captured by two or more cameras with different observation positions. Intelligent image processing can then reconstruct the spatial depth and thus the three-dimensional structure of the imaged environment. Since no light is emitted during stereo vision, the brightness of the environment is of no importance, and there is no fixed upper limit for the maximum measurable distance. Furthermore, only one image per camera is required, making stereo vision particularly suitable for dynamic applications.

Despite these advantages, stereo vision is currently rarely used in industrial applications. One of the main reasons for this is the enormous computing power required for image processing. Take two cameras with a resolution of 720 x 480 pixels and a frame rate of 30Hz. If the maximum difference between the pixel positions of two matching pixels from both camera images is limited to 100 pixels, more than one billion pixels per second have to be compared with each other.

To make things worse, if high-quality results are to be achieved, pure image comparison is not enough. Modern methods of stereo image processing rely on optimisation methods that try to find an optimal assignment of matching pixels from both camera images. This allows a drastic increase in quality to be achieved, but which also increases the computing load many times over.

If one leaves the image processing to ordinary software, then one must inevitably decide between fast processing and exact results. This can be remedied by offloading image processing to particularly powerful high-end graphics cards. However, these have a high-power consumption, which prevents them from being used in mobile systems in particular.

Nerian Vision has developed a special hardware solution for stereo image processing based on an FPGA. Mapping the image processing algorithms directly into hardware allows a massive parallelisation to be achieved, which leads to a large increase in performance compared to a purely software-based solution. FPGAs are also energy-efficient, which allows them to be used on mobile systems.

Nerian’s SceneScan 3D sensor can calculate depth data for 30 million pixels per second using the FPGA. This corresponds to a resolution of 2 megapixels at 15fps, 0.5 megapixels at 65fps, or 0.3 megapixels at 100fps. Power consumption remains less than 10W. This makes SceneScan particularly suitable for battery powered mobile systems such as mobile service or logistics robots.

Nerian hopes that with this technology, passive stereo vision will become more widely used in industrial applications. It makes stereo vision a very promising sensor technology for applications that require fast and robust 3D measurements.

ใครคือผู้ก่อตั้ง Kubernetes และปัจจุบันเขาไปอยู่ที่ไหนกัน?

 Cache   

ตำแหน่งซอฟต์แวร์ที่ร้อนแรงที่สุดในปี 2019 ย่อมเป็นของ Kubernetes ที่บริษัทไอทีสายองค์กรทุกแห่งต้องวิ่งเข้าหา (อ่านบทความ Kubernetes คืออะไร ประกอบ)

เราอาจรู้ประวัติของ Kubernetes ว่าเริ่มสร้างโดยวิศวกรของกูเกิลในปี 2014 หลังจากนั้นคือปี 2015 ยกให้องค์กรกลางคือ Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) ดูแลต่อ แต่ถ้าถามว่าใครคือผู้สร้าง Kubernetes อาจไม่มีใครตอบได้ในทันที

Kubernetes เริ่มสร้างโดยวิศวกรของกูเกิล 3 คนคือ Joe Beda, Brendan Burns, Craig McLuckie ซึ่งปัจจุบันไม่ได้อยู่กับกูเกิลแล้วสักคน พวกเขาทำอะไรกันอยู่ในตอนนี้?

Made in Seattle

สำนักงานใหญ่ของกูเกิลอยู่ที่เมือง Mountain View ในรัฐแคลิฟอร์เนีย แต่กูเกิลมีสำนักงานอยู่หลายแห่งทั่วโลก และผลิตภัณฑ์หลายๆ ตัวของกูเกิลก็ไม่ได้สร้างขึ้นที่ Mountain View เสมอไป (ตัวอย่างที่ชัดๆ คือ Google Maps สร้างโดยทีมงานในออสเตรเลีย)

Kubernetes เองก็เช่นกัน มันถูกสร้างขึ้นที่สำนักงานของกูเกิลในเมือง Seattle ซึ่งเป็นฐานที่มั่นของไมโครซอฟท์

สองคู่หู Joe Beda และ Craig McLuckie เคยเป็นพนักงานของไมโครซอฟท์มาก่อนในยุค 2000s (Beda อยู่กับไมโครซอฟท์ระหว่างปี 1997-2004, McLuckie อยู่ระหว่างปี 2001-2008 และ 2012-2013) ทั้งสองคนโคจรมาพบกันที่กูเกิลสาขา Seattle ราวปี 2013-2014

ส่วน Brendan Burns เคยเป็นอาจารย์มหาวิทยาลัยมาก่อน แล้วย้ายมาอยู่ที่กูเกิล Seattle ตั้งแต่ปี 2008 จึงเป็นแกนหลักอีกคนในการสร้าง Borg ที่ภายหลังกลายเป็น Kubernetes เช่นกัน

ผู้ก่อตั้งทั้งสามคนร่วมกันสร้าง Kubernetes ในปี 2014 และเปิดตัวสู่สาธารณะในปี 2015 หลังจากนั้นก็ถึงทางแยกของแต่ละคน

Brendan Burns ไปไมโครซอฟท์

Brendan Burns ที่ไม่เคยอยู่กับไมโครซอฟท์มาก่อนเลย ลาออกจากกูเกิลในปี 2016 ไปอยู่กับไมโครซอฟท์ (ซึ่งก็ยังอยู่ในพื้นที่ Seattle) ปัจจุบันเขามีตำแหน่งเป็น Distinguished Engineer ของ Azure Container Service (AKS) รวมถึงดูแลงานด้าน DevOps ด้วย

Joe Beda และ Craig McLuckie ไป VMware

ส่วนคู่หู Joe Beda และ Craig McLuckie ลาออกจากกูเกิลในช่วงเวลาไล่เลี่ยกัน (2015-2016) และร่วมกันเปิดบริษัทสตาร์ตอัพ Heptio ในปี 2016 ซึ่งก็แน่นอนว่าทำธุรกิจเกี่ยวกับ Kubernetes

Heptio ถูกซื้อกิจการโดย VMware ในปี 2018 เพื่อนำความเชี่ยวชาญของทีมงานมาช่วยพัฒนา Kubernetes เวอร์ชันของ VMware (PKS หรือ Pivotal Kubernetes Service)

ปัจจุบันทั้งสองคนยังอยู่กับ VMware ในฐานะแกนนำคนสำคัญของโครงการ Kubernetes โดย Beda มีตำแหน่งเป็น Principal Engineer และ McLuckie เป็น Vice President

ทั้งสองคนยังอยู่ในพื้นที่แถบ Seattle เช่นเดิม

Bitcoin is hard to understand. So is its carbon footprint.

Story 352511549

In 2013, we found out that Bitcoin mining might be bad for the environment, since the process requires a lot of computing power and therefore a lot of energy, and we were like:

Then in 2017, we heard about findings that said the electricity needed for cryptocurrency would soon outpace what’s available, requiring new power plants to come online to feed the demand, and we were like:

Six months later, we read a study that found that Bitcoin’s energy usage had doubled since that last study came out and was expected to double again in the same amount of time, and we were like:

By the end of 2018, when a new study found that Bitcoin could single-handedly push the planet to 2 degrees C of warming and lock in catastrophic climate change, we were like:

Angry Selina Meyer GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

But now, there’s new evidence that Bitcoin’s energy footprint might not be as high as previously reported.

Stephen Colbert Good Luck GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

A recent study published in the journal Environmental Science and Technology did a life-cycle assessment of the Bitcoin mining network and arrived at a lower carbon footprint than previous studies. The study’s authors calculated a total of 17.29 metric tons of CO2 equivalent emitted in 2018, as compared to other studies that reported anywhere from 22 to 63 metric tons.

The difference primarily came down to the way they looked at carbon emissions in China. The authors estimate that more than half of all Bitcoin mining takes place there. They claim that earlier assessments assumed carbon emissions from electricity generation were the same everywhere in the country, but that’s not the case. Some regions, like inner Mongolia, burn a lot of coal, while others, like Sichuan, use more hydropower. When the researchers broke down emissions by region, the total global Bitcoin footprint came down significantly.

The findings certainly don’t let those libertarian nerdbucks off the hook. “On the one hand we have these alarmist voices saying we won’t hit the Paris agreement because of Bitcoin only,” Susanne Köhler, one of the authors of the study, told New Scientist. “But on the other hand there are a lot of voices from the Bitcoin community saying that most of the mining is done with green energy and that it’s not high impact.” The truth is somewhere between these extremes.

The problem with all of these estimates is that there just isn’t enough reliable data on the cryptocurrency to calculate its footprint with a high level of certainty. The academic literature on Bitcoin is thin. In this case, the authors attempted to use an established method — a life-cycle assessment— that had not been used in previous studies. But they still had to make several assumptions about where cryptocurrency mining is taking place and what equipment is being used, both of which they think deserve more research. “It is important to highlight that this analysis and its results are characterized by an intrinsic uncertainty,” they write.

In other words, scientists still don’t fully understand what Bitcoin is doing to the planet. Which makes us feel better about the fact that we don’t understand how the hell Bitcoin works in the first place.

Public statement by Rachana Institute of Typography on the copyright/credit issue of SMC and RIT fonts

 Cache   

About us

We — KH Hussain, CV Radhakrishnan, PK Ashok Kumar and KV Rajeesh — are the copyright holders of TN Joy font. Many of us have worked on free/libre/open source software for years in our spare time and contributed code, design, fonts, documentation, localization and financial support to various free software projects. Our contributions can be found easily on the Web and elsewhere.

A copyright/‘credit’ issue

Immediately after the font ‘TN Joy’ was released to public by Rachana Institute of Typography (RIT), on 2-Oct-2019, Santhosh Thottingal raised a question in a forum with enough number of participants to qualify as a public discussion:

@rajeeshknambiar there are lot (sic) of contributions from me, Kavya in the build scripts, tests, and feature files in https://gitlab.com/rit-fonts/tnjoy/ Consider giving credit.

On 14-Oct-2019, Santhosh followed up again.

@rajeeshknambiar did not reply to my request for giving credits in their font.

and

Ask hussain sir to give credits for font testing and building framework. Crediting anivar alone is not enough.”

To which Rajeesh responded on 19-Oct-2019, to discuss with all the copyright holders of TN Joy about the issue:

“Noted. I will try to take it up for discussion and let you know.

On 29-Oct-2019, Santhosh again followed up:

അങ്ങനെ എഴുതുകയും ചെയ്യുകയും ചെയ്ത ഫോണ്ടിന്റെ കാര്യങ്ങൾക്ക് ക്രെഡിറ്റ് കിട്ടിയില്ലെന്നാണ് പറയുന്നത് അനിവർ:) sundar, and janayugam fonts. ഇതിൽ രാജാജിയുടെ ഹെൽപ്പൊന്നും വേണ്ട. even @rajeeshknambiar can just fix it

Analysis

During the first week of Nov-2019 for the summit organized by Kerala Media Academy, all the copyright holders of TN Joy font met and discussed the issue raised by Santhosh.

As free software developers and users, it was not our intention to violate copyright or appropriate credit of another free software developer’s work at all. Not only in intention, but we strived to achieve that in all our projects by acts. So, this accusation came as a surprise to us and we decided to take a deeper look at how this issue originated and what the root cause is, to address it properly.

We did a detailed analysis and documented the following details.

Technical background

  1. A Malayalam Unicode font has two essential parts — the Glyphs (അക്ഷരരൂപങ്ങൾ) and the OpenType shaping lookup rules. Unlike Latin fonts, both of these are necessary for proper shaping. The final TTF/OTF/WOFF2  contains both Glyphs and OpenType shaping rules to make a Malayalam Unicode font usable software. Without either, such a software is not usable.
Figure 1: Malayalam text without shaping (left) and with correct shaping (right).
  1. The Malayalam opentype features (GSUB and GPOS ‘lookup rules’) used in font ‘TN Joy’ developed by Rachana Institute of Typography (RIT) are adapted from that of font ‘Sundar’ which in turn are adapted from feature file of ‘Rachana’.
  2. To develop the feature file of Rachana over the years, many have contributed including the original author Hussain KH , Suresh P, Santhosh Thottingal, Rajeesh KV, Kavya Manohar et al. [1].
  3. Hussain KH invented and implemented the glyph naming conventions (‘k1’ for ‘ ക’, ‘xx’ for ‘ ്’ etc. instead of names like ‘uni0D15’ etc.), which made font featuring highly comprehensible for programming and much easier to maintain. This naming scheme is followed by all fonts maintained by Swathanthra Malayalam Computing (SMC) and RIT. This was also the naming scheme in fonts developed by ATPS and when it was pointed out that those fonts were derived from SMC’s, the immediate change made was renaming the glyphs and lookup rules [2, 3, 4].
  4. Rajeesh is the original author of lookup rules of SMC’s fonts for revised ‘mlm2’ OpenType specification for Malayalam, and made it possible to support both ‘mlym’ and ‘mlm2’ specification in a single font. This resulted in making a single font work well with Windows XP, Pango/Qt4 era applications and Uniscribe, HarfBuzz era applications [5].
  5. In 2015, Santhosh split the comprehensive lookup rules from the Fontforge SFD file of Rachana into a separate feature file, but the copyright statements were not preserved [4]. It is our opinion that removing copyright statements is violation of copyright act (hence a crime) and immoral in the free software world. This is also the root cause for missing copyright in the OpenType lookup rules and build script, of the fonts in question.
  6. The same lookup rules in 2, 4 and 5 are used and adapted by subsequent fonts developed by SMC and RIT, such as Chilanka, Manjari, Sundar, Gayathri, TN Joy etc. Rajeesh did not claim for credit or copyright when Manjari or Gayathri was released.

RIT’s statement

With this background,

  1. Fonts developed, maintained and distributed by both SMC  and RIT, specifically its OpenType lookup rules + fontforge based build tool + test cases are at the heart of this issue. This is caused by the change introduced by Santhosh in [6].
  2. The copyright holders of TN Joy font were made aware of such ‘credit’ issue — the definition of which Santhosh has not clarified and in RIT’s understanding is sufficient and limited to ‘copyright’. Thanks for bringing light into such a potential legal and moral risk that affects the users and organizations using these fonts.
  3. RIT  would like to acknowledge the copyright of Santhosh Thottingal and Kavya Manohar for the development of ‘Sundar’ and ‘TN Joy’ in the areas of lookup rules, the ‘build script’ and comprehensive ‘test file’. RIT  is willing to add the missing copyright notice to these files;

and RIT asked Santhosh to consider:

  1. Preserve the copyright of the original authors of the ‘lookup rules’ and Naming convention (notation for Glyphs) in all these fonts. The copyright and license statement should read:

“Copyright: Digitized data copyright (c) 2004–2005 Rachana Akshara Vedi (Chitrajakumar R, Hussain KH, Gangadharan N, Vijayakumaran Nair, Subash Kuraiakose), (c) 2006–2016 Hussain KH, Suresh P, Santhosh Thottingal, Rajeesh K Nambiar, Swathanthra Malayalam Computing (http://smc.org.in). This file is licensed under OFL  1.1.”

  1. The Fontforge based ‘build script’ added by Santhosh used to generate TTF/OTF/WOFF/WOFF2 files is adapted from that of Amiri font by Khaled Hosny [7] without preserving copyright or attribution. RIT requests to credit the original author[s] of this tool. It is of our opinion that removing copyright statements from a free software program code is illegal and immoral. It is also hypocritical when a person who asserts one’s own credit does this crime to other well-known and respected free software developer[s].
  2. Test cases in the ‘test file’ are contributed by various contributors, RIT  request to add the attribution of such contributors to the extent possible (Kavya Manohar, Santhosh Thottingal, Rajeesh KV). Santhosh has responded to this request as “test cases were mainly prepared by Kavya and no need to have attribution”, but RIT  firmly believes the copyright statements of the contributors must be added.
  3. The original author of ‘mlym.sty’ file [8] to typeset Unicode Malayalam using XeTeX is Suresh P, which was enhanced by Rajeesh KV with inputs from Hussain KH. Due to frequent requests on how to typeset Malayalam using Unicode, in 2013 Rajeesh wrote a wiki page [9] with basic details, which was later extended by other developers with instructions to install and setup XeTeX packages. This wiki article was later extended by Santhosh by adding matter from Wikipedia. This article was then copied and published in Santhosh’s blog [10] without attributing the authors, and [10] is frequently provided by Santhosh as the first response to general public asking for documentation on how to typeset Malayalam using XeTeX. It is shockingly hypocritical that plagiarism is practised by a well known free software developer who asserts one’s own credit without any respect to others copyright or credit. RIT  would like Santhosh to either: (a) redact [10] and redirect to [9] instead, or (b) credit the original authors in [10].

RIT  stopped the analysis and investigation of Santhosh’s claim at this point, as we have identified the root cause of missing copyrights and these are the important topics directly affecting RIT  developers.

Conclusion

RIT  tried to resolve the issue in private discussion with Santhosh Thottingal but unfortunately it did not succeed. Santhosh has not agreed to reinstate the copyright statement of original authors. Santhosh did not respond to many of the pointed questions we raised and deflected on answering others. Santhosh also refused to clarify what he means by ‘credit’ despite repeated pointed questions. Santhosh withdrew his claim for credit in one of the emails; and it is possible that he could change the mind any time and the issue could resurface. This surrounds the fonts by SMC  and RIT  in Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (which the corporate proprietary companies successfully used against free software for years) and put all the individual users and organizations and developers using these fonts under legal risk and moral ambiguity.

Thus,

  1. RIT  has added proper copyright statements to all the software used in building its fonts, viz. ‘Sundar’ and ‘ TN Joy’ [11,12].
  2. RIT  believes that our primary responsibility is towards the individual and institutional users of our fonts and developers depending on our tools; and they should be able to use our fonts and tools without any legal risk or moral ambiguity. RIT, to the best of its knowledge, has fulfilled that responsibility and strive to do so.
  3. RIT also understands that as with any issue in the free software world, the community would be divided, and it is a painful thing. RIT request the community to carefully consider all the facts before making a choice.

This will be the final public statement of RIT on the copyright issue raised by Santhosh Thottingal.

The Early History of Usenet, Part VI: The Public Announcement

 Cache   

Our goal was to announce Usenet at the January, 1980 Usenix meeting. In those days, Usenix met at universities; it was a small, comaparatively informal organization, and didn't require hotel meeting rooms and the like. (I don't know just when Usenix started being a formal academic-style conference; I do know that it was no later than 1984, since I was on the program committee that year for what would later be called the Annual Technical Conference.) This meeting was in Boulder; I wasn't there, but Tom Truscott and Jim Ellis were.

Apart from the announcement itself, we of course needed non-experimental code — and my prototype was not going to cut it. Although I no longer remember precisely what deficiencies were in my C version, one likely issue was the ability to configure which neighboring sites would receive which newsgroups. Stephen Daniel, also at Duke CS, wrote the code that became known as "A-news". One important change was the ability to have multiple hierarchies, rather than just the original "NET" or "NET.*". (Aside: I said in a previous note that my C version had switched to "NET.*" for distributed groups, rather than the single NET. I'm now no longer sure of when that was introduced, in my C version or in Steve Daniel's version. He certainly supported other hierarchies; I certainly did not.) It was also possible in the production version to configure which groups or hierarchies a site would receive. For sanity's sake, this configuration would have to be in a file, rather than in an array built into the code.

That latter point was not always obvious. Uucp, as distributed, used an array to list the commands remote sites were permitted to execute:

char *Cmds[] = {
   "mail",
   "rmail",
   "lpr",
   "opr",
   "fsend",
   "fget",
   NULL
   };

/* to remove restrictions from uuxqt
 * redefine CMDOK 0
 *
 * to add allowable commands, add to the list under Cmds[]
 */

To permit rnews to execute, a system administrator would have to change the source code (and most people had source code to Unix in those days) and recompile. This was, in hindsight, an obviously incorrect decision, but it arguably was justifiable in those days: what else should you be allowed to do? There were many, many fewer commands. (I should note: I no longer remember for certain what fsend, fget, or opr were. I think they were for sending and receiving files, and for printing to a Honeywell machine at the Bell Labs Murray Hill comp center. Think of the ancient GCOS field in /etc/passwd file.)

To work around this problem, we supplied a mail-to-rnews program: a sending site could email articles, rather than try to execute rnews directly. A clock-driven daemon would retrieve the email messages and pass them to rnews. And it had to be clock-driven: in those days, there was no way to have email delivered directly to a program or file. (A security feature? No, simply the simplicity that was then the guiding spirit of Unix. But yes, it certainly helped security.) The remote site configuration file in the A-news therefore needed to know a command to execute, too.

The formal announcement can be seen here. The HTML is easier on the eyes, but there are a few typos and even some missing text, so you may want to look at the scanned version linked to at the bottom. A few things stand out. First, as I noted in Part III, there was a provision for Duke to recover phone charges from sites it polled. There was clearly faculty support at Duke for the project. For that matter, faculty at UNC knew what I was doing.

A more interesting point is what we thought the wide-area use would be: "The first articles will probably concern bug fixes, trouble reports, and general cries for help." Given how focused on the system aspects we were, what we really meant was something like the eventual newsgroup comp.sys.unix-wizards. There was, then, a very strong culture of mutual assistance among programmers, not just in organizations like Usenix (which was originally, as I noted, the Unix Users' Group), but also in the IBM mainframe world. The Wikipedia article on SHARE explains this well:

A major resource of SHARE from the beginning was the SHARE library. Originally, IBM distributed what software it provided in source form and systems programmers commonly made small local additions or modifications and exchanged them with other users. The SHARE library and the process of distributed development it fostered was one of the major origins of open source software.

Another proposed use was locating interesting source code, but not flooding it to the network. Why not? Because software might be bulky, and phone calls then were expensive. The announcement estimates that nighttime phone rates were about US$.50 for three minutes; that sounds about right, though even within the US rates varied with distance. In that time, at 300 bps — 30 bytes per second — you could send at most 5400 bytes; given protocol overhead, we conservatively estimated 3000 bytes, or a kilobyte per minute. To pick an arbitrary point of comparison, the source to uucp is about 120KB; at 1KB/sec, that's two hours, or US$20. Adjusting for inflation, that's over US$60 in today's money — and most people don't want most packages. And there was another issue: Duke only had two autodialers; there simply wasn't the bandwidth to send big files to many places, and trying to do so would block all news transfers to other sites. Instead, the proposal was for someone — Duke? — to be a central respository; software could then be retrieved on demand. This was a model later adopted by UUNET; more on it in the next installment of this series.

The most interesting thing, though, is what the announcement didn't talk about: any non-technical use. We completely missed social discussions, hobby discussions, politial discussions, or anything else like that. To the extent we considered it at all, it was for local use — after all, who would want to discuss such things with someone they'd never met?

A Quick Guide to Hybrid Cloud

 Cache   
Hybrid cloud brings the best of both worlds.

For the first few years that cloud was becoming prominent, it was praised by IT and finance professionals. However, those who were working with extremely sensitive or mission-critical systems remained reluctant to use the technology. What enterprises started to do was strike a balance and adopt the hybrid model, rather than going all-in with either in-house or public systems.

A hybrid cloud is an integrated cloud service utilizing both private and public clouds to perform distinct functions within the same organization. All cloud computing services should offer certain efficiencies to different degrees but public cloud services are likely to be more cost-efficient and scalable that private clouds. With a hybrid cloud, an organization can maximize their efficiencies by employing public cloud services for all non-sensitive operations, only relying on a private cloud where they require it, with it ensuring that all platforms are seamlessly integrated.

What do YOU want GCentral to be?

 Cache   
I am very excited about the potential for a platform that encourages opensource collaboration on LabVIEW code. My main experience of non LabVIEW package managers is with NPM for Node.js. NPM is an organisation which provides two things - a tool which is the mechanism for managing what packages are used in a project and a registry that allows for anyone to publish their packages to. I believe that NPM supports private packages for enterprise customers but open source packages are generally hosted on github and when a package is uploaded to the NPM registry it simply pulls in the README to provide the package documentation. The github link is also provided on the NPM page so that users can easily see where the library comes from and if they want to open issues or submit fixes then they do that on github. I have not had much of a chance to look at it but it appears like GPM would/does follow similar mechanics to NPM and compared to VIPM and NIPM I am certainly most excited about the GPM model. I see GCentral as a organisation that could provide the registry for packages and ideally be the one place for opensource LabVIEW code (including NI-community page hosted code) with clear signposts as to where to find the source for issue raising and forking. One issue that many text based languages don't have is that users with older versions of labVIEW cannot even open code made with newer versions of LabVIEW, let alone run it - so maybe GCentral could provide some computing power (and licences) to automatically convert VIs to older versions - even if they didn't run, at least a user could open them.

We don’t need no observation: The use and regulation of facial recognition in Brazilian public schools

Introduction

The use of facial recognition technology in schools around the world in countries such as China and the United States has encouraged the similar use of this technology by other countries, including Brazil. However, it has also raised questions and concerns about the privacy of students. Because of this, analyses of the nature and consequences of the use of facial recognition technology in diverse scenarios are necessary.

This report presents a brief reflection on the use of facial recognition technologies in Brazilian public schools, including in the state of Pernambuco, where IP.rec is based, and considers their implications for citizens' rights to privacy, as well as the possibility of the technology being regulated by existing laws.

Background

Artificial intelligence (AI), algorithms, the “internet of things”, smart cities, facial recognition, biometrics, profiling, big data. When one tries to imagine the future of big cities, it is impossible not to think about these terms. But is the desire to make cities “smarter” jeopardising the privacy of Brazilian citizens? Does this desire turn people into mere guinea pigs for experimentation with new technologies in a laboratory of continental proportions?

The use of facial recognition technologies in Brazilian public schools has already been implemented in several cities such as Jaboatão dos Guararapes (in the state of Pernambuco), Cabo de Santo Agostinho (Pernambuco), Arapiraca (Alagoas), Cravinhos (São Paulo), Tarumã (São Paulo), Potia (São Paulo), Paranavaí (Paraná), Guaíra (Paraná), Viana (Espírito Santo), Anápolis (Goiás), Senador Canedo (Goiás) and Vila Bela da Santíssima Trindade (Mato Grosso).[1] Among the features provided by the so-called Ponto iD[2] system is the monitoring of the attendance of students at school without the need to take roll call. The system also aims to help optimise class time, as the time spent on the roll call is saved; help manage school meals, as cooks are notified of the exact number of students in class as soon as the gates close; and decrease the school drop-out rate, as guardians receive, through an app, notifications that their child is in the school. The last is noted as a primary social consequence of using the technology. To implement the system, the city of Jaboatão dos Guararapes, for example, has spent BRL 3,000 (USD 780) per month per school.

The technology provider's webpage states that the solution is designed in an integrated way, linking government departments. Because of this, a diverse range of public institutions can share information with each other. For example, according to the government of the city of Jaboatão dos Guararapes, if a student is absent for more than five days, the Guardianship Council is notified as the system also shares students’ information with that body.[3]

In 2015, the service provider also stated that the system would be connected to the Bolsa Família programme,[4] which is a direct income transfer programme aimed at families living in poverty and extreme poverty throughout the country, and intended to help them out of their vulnerable situation. In Brazil, more than 13.9 million families are served by Bolsa Família.[5] The receipt of the benefits is conditioned, among other duties of a student whose family is a beneficiary of the programme, to a minimum school attendance of 85% for children and adolescents from six to 15 years old and 75% for adolescents 16 and 17 years old.[6]

Privacy? Absent. Risks? Present

As previously observed by several scholars, digital technologies not only make behaviour easier to monitor, but also make behaviour more traceable.[7] Given this potential, a number of critical issues in relation to the application of facial recognition systems in educational contexts were identified.

According to the service provider, the system works off a platform that uses cloud computing capabilities, but it was not possible to identify any information regarding the level of security related to the storage of collected data in the company’s privacy policy available on its official website. Despite this, among the said benefits offered by the technology implemented are not only the monitoring of students’ attendance and their school performance, but the possibility of monitoring students’ personal health data.

The mayor of the city of Jaboatão dos Guararapes[8] states that in addition to facial recognition, the software also offers, through the collection of other information, the possibility of better planning the number of daily school meals. As soon as the school’s gates are closed, the cooks receive via SMS[9] the exact number of students who are in the classrooms. Meanwhile, according to the secretary of education of Jaboatão dos Guararapes, Ivaneide Dantas, at some point even the health problems of students will be identified and parents informed using the system.

However, the lack of information that is included in the company’s privacy policy,[10] or on city halls’ websites, constitutes a critical point in the relationship between students and the education system. The problem becomes all the more obvious since the solution involves sensitive data – biometric data – of minors.

The text of the Brazilian General Data Protection Law (LGPD),[11] recently approved unanimously in congress after almost 10 years of discussions and two years of proceedings, has undergone major changes due to the vetoes of former president Michel Temer at the time of its sanction and more recently by President Jair Bolsonaro. The changes to the text of the LGPD through Provisional Measure 869/2018[12] have resulted in the impairment of the effectiveness of the law as well as a series of setbacks. These setbacks have ignored issues considered already decided on in discussions that had popular participation, as well as the input of members of the executive and legislative branches. As argued in a report released by the joint committee set up to investigate the possible impacts caused by the Provisional Measure,[13] the revised act put at risk the effectiveness of the guarantees reached by the previous text.

The public sector, especially the police authorities, are using new technologies to monitor the population without the social consequences being considered or even measured. The adoption of facial recognition systems for public security purposes is already a reality in several Brazilian cities. Recently, the increase in the use of the tool in public and private spheres has led to the establishment of Civil Public Inquiry No. 08190.052289/18-94[14] by the Personal Data Protection Commission of the Public Prosecutor's Office of the Federal District and Territories (MPDFT), as well as a public hearing held on 16 April 2019.[15] The hearing sought not only to promote debates about the use of facial recognition tools by businesses and the government, but also to function as an open space for the participation of NGOs and civil society.

It is important to remember that as systems are being implemented in public schools around the country, much of the peripheral and vulnerable population is being registered in this "experiment" – that is, data is being collected on vulnerable and marginalised groups. As researchers have pointed out, biases are being increasingly incorporated into the variety of new technological tools.[16] These digital tools can act more quickly, on a larger scale, and with actions that can be hidden by a greater complexity, such as, for example, through profiling systems that use biased machine learning algorithms that police, profile and punish minorities. The struggle is still against the perpetuation of the same problem: the deprivation of civil rights of certain groups of society as a result of social inequalities and power relations in society.

It is not uncommon for technology to be used in a way in Brazil that suggests the possibility of a future Orwellian dystopia. The use of facial recognition technology during the Carnival of 2019 in the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Salvador, resulting in a number of arrests, drew the attention of Brazilians.[17] The apparent relativism of fundamental rights and the relaxation of laws that limit surveillance due to the magnitude of events,[18] and the lack of official information on the effectiveness of the new automated measures, as well as on the storage and sharing of biometric data, were just some of the various problems identified.

The need to manage large events with thousands of participants is not the only reason why surveillance technologies are used in Brazilian urban centres. As Marcelo Souza from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) explains,[19] the increase in punitive policies and the militarisation of the police are the main reasons behind the increasing use of dystopian and invasive AI devices and technologies, typical of combat zones.[20] Even after a series of changes that have taken place in Brazil since the promulgation of the 1988 Constitution, public security institutions have not been significantly modified. The culture of war against the "internal enemy", for example, remains as present as in the days of the military dictatorship.[21]

Given that the recently approved LGPD does not apply to data processing for public security purposes, it would be possible for authorities to argue that the biometric database from the facial recognition system in schools can be used to identify suspects and improve public security. This would place its use even further outside the remit of current legislation. As the LGPD states, data processing for public security purposes "shall be governed by specific legislation, which shall provide for proportionate and strictly necessary measures to serve the public interest" (Article 4, III, § 1, LGPD).[22]

However, a specific law does not exist so far. According to the Brazilian lawyer and privacy advocate Rafael Zanatta,[23] the civic battle in Brazil will be around the shared definition of "proportional measures" and "public interest”. The solution proposed by some researchers and activists for the time being is the protection offered by the constitution, such as the presumption of innocence, and the general principles of the LGPD itself, which guard against the improper use of collected data. On the other hand, it is believed that a tremendous effort will be needed to consolidate jurisprudence where these principles are applied in cases of state surveillance.

There is also a lack of easy access to public documents and information on the use of surveillance technologies. Often information related to the operation of these technologies depends on ad hoc statements made by public agents or private companies, whistleblowers or, when granted, requests for access to public information made possible by the Access to Information Law (LAI).

The discussion on the regulation of AI systems in Brazil is still very new. According to Brazilian researchers Bruno Bioni and Mariana Rielli,[24] the general debate on data protection around the globe has different degrees of maturity depending on the region and the specific issues faced. In addition, a paradigm shift has been observed through the transition from a focus on the individual's right to self-determination with regards to his or her private information to a model of risk prevention and management with respect to data-processing activities.

However, the use of AI for the collection and processing of sensitive personal data, such as the biometric data in question, makes these risks difficult to measure. In part this is because the general population does not have sufficient knowledge of the technology to recognise the extent of its impact on their personal lives.

In this way, an imbalance of power with regard to public awareness and the use of the technology has been created in Brazil.

The need for impact reports on the protection of personal data is an important requirement that has been gaining prominence in legislation, such as European legislation and the recently approved LGPD. However, Bioni and Rielli draw attention to the few requirements placed on developers of AI technologies in Brazil, as well as on the consumer who buys and implements the technology. In particular, there is no law in relation to the purchase and use of facial recognition devices for public service and public safety purposes in Brazil, unlike similar public projects elsewhere that seek an informed public debate and the inclusion of citizens' interests in decision-making processes (e.g. the ordinance on the acquisition of surveillance technology recently adopted in San Francisco, in the United States).[25]

Conclusion

A decrease in school drop-out rates: this is the main advantage of facial recognition technology in schools, according to the company that has developed the technology. But are we assigning to technology something that would be the responsibility of society and the state?

As the Brazilian educator and philosopher Paulo Freire[26] showed, many of the most common practices in the Brazilian educational system are dictated by the Brazilian elite. This includes the use of educational content that does not correspond to the reality of students from lower classes, but instead inhibits their ability to think critically of their reality, and in the end discourages them from attending school.

Easy and safe access to school is also an important consideration impacting on the student's educational performance. The Brazilian Statute of the Child and Adolescent, in chapter IV, art. 53, inc. V,[27] states that one of the rights of the child and adolescent is access to public and free schools near his or her home. However, when distance is not an impediment to school attendance, issues related to the safety of the student's route to school should also be considered. For example, in some communities in Rio de Janeiro,[28] there are frequent incidents of armed confrontation between police and drug traffickers, visible abuses of power by the authorities, stray bullets and other incidents endangering the lives of passers-by, and even street executions, all of which are daily threats to residents. In addition, the reality faced by marginalised populations in Brazil raises another important question: the need for children and adolescents from low-income families to leave school in order to work and help support the household.

The problem of the school drop-out rate in Brazil is neither a new issue nor something that can be solved only with the implementation of a new school attendance system using AI. It is necessary for society to seek more meaningful ways to mitigate the present crisis facing the educational system.

In addition to projects that raise public awareness about issues related to new technologies in Brazilian urban centres, there is also a need to strengthen legislation that governs how sensitive data is shared and used in public projects in order to maintain the quality of public services. When the fundamental rights and guarantees of citizens are understood and respected, a relationship of trust is established.

Cities in Brazil should strengthen privacy protection instruments and create legal certainty through the establishment of fundamental principles, rights and duties for the operation of an ever-changing array of technologies in society. Regulating the use of personal data in the public sphere has the power to promote the conscious, transparent and legitimate use of this information.

Action steps

The following advocacy priorities are suggested for Brazil:

  • Formulate regional policies and strategies for the use of AI in Latin America and the Caribbean.
  • Develop legally enforceable safeguards, including robust transparency and accountability measures, before any facial recognition technology is deployed.
  • Promote national campaigns and public debate over surveillance technology given the impact such technologies may have on civil rights and civil liberties.
  • Include a social, cultural and political understanding of the needs of vulnerable groups in the country's education strategies to make the learning environment more attractive for these groups.
  • Develop open source AI systems that enable wider community use, with appropriate privacy protections.

Why Alan Turing Will Appear on UK Currency | International Monetary Fund

 Cache   
Finance & Development, December 2019, Vol. 56, No. 4 PDF version.

Mathematician and computer science pioneer Alan Turing will appear on UK currency by Melinda Weir, Staff Assistent at International Monetary Fund.

Photo: BANK OF ENGLAND

One Monday last July, Bank of England Governor Mark Carney strode onto the stage at the Science and Industry Museum in Manchester to reveal the next face of the United Kingdom’s £50 note, one that the bank had earmarked for science.

The honor, he announced, would go to Alan Turing (1912–54)—mathematician, World War II code breaker, and father of computer science.

Turing was a visionary as well as a revolutionary, in Carney’s words, and an outstanding mathematician whose work has had a considerable impact on how we live today.
Turing’s seminal 1936 paper “On Computable Numbers” imagined the very concept of modern computing. His code-breaking machine is credited with shortening World War II. And his revolutionary postwar work helped create the world’s first commercial computers and articulated philosophical and logical foundations for artificial intelligence...

A photo of Turing, along with a composite image representing some of his groundbreaking ideas and inventions, will appear on the reverse side of the new £50 notes, scheduled to be issued in late 2021.

Last redesigned in 2011, the £50 bill will be printed on polymer for the first time: it’s much harder to counterfeit and more resilient and has a lower carbon footprint than paper, according to John. (The £5 and £10 notes have already come out on polymer, with the polymer £20 set to be issued in 2020.)

EECS Colloquium: The Internet of Materials: The next logical step or a paradigm shift?, Dec 4

 Cache   
Revisiting Weiser’s 30-year old inspirational vision on ubiquitous computing, we see that there are three factors that today limit the kind of ubiquity that Weiser described: power, cost, and form factor. Using these factors to drive our efforts, we have created examples of computational materials at Georgia Tech that demonstrate self-sustaining computational devices that are manufactured with simple materials to perform interesting sensing and communication tasks. These computational materials can be more literally woven into the fabric of everyday life, inspiring many more applications of ubiquitous computing, as well as many avenues for research challenges. We will demonstrate some of these early examples, motivating an Internet of Materials vision. Is this a logical progression from the Internet of Things, or something fundamentally new? Some research challenges for computing to meet a vision of IoM will be discussed.

Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar, Dec 6

 Cache   
This talk will present recent highlights from our research on two-dimensional (2D) materials including graphene, boron nitride (h-BN), and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). The results span from material growth and fundamental measurements, to simulations, devices and system-oriented applications that take advantage of unusual 2D material properties. We have grown monolayer 2D semiconductors over large areas, including MoS2 [1], WSe2, and MoSe2 [2]. We also uncovered that ZrSe2 and HfSe2 have native high-κ dielectrics ZrO2 and HfO2, which are of key technological relevance [3]. Improved electrical contacts [4] led to the realization of 10 nm monolayer MoS2 transistors with the highest current reported to date, near ballistic limits [5]. These could play a role in 3D heterogeneous integration of nanoelectronics, which presents significant advantages for energy-efficient computation [6]. In less conventional applications, we utilized 2D materials as computing fabrics for analog dot product circuits [7], as highly efficient thermal insulators [8], and as the basis of thermal transistors [9]. The last two examples could enable control of heat in “thermal circuits” analogous with electrical circuits. Combined, these studies reveal fundamental limits and some unusual applications of 2D materials, which take advantage of their unique properties.

37 students accepted to CS Research mentorship program

 Cache   

Computer science research addresses problems that affect all of our lives, from producing better flood forecasts to live captions and more. To ensure that CS research explores the issues that affect all communities, the researchers themselves need to be representative of those communities But in 2018, less than 25 percent of computer science PhD degrees in the United States were awarded to researchers from groups historically underrepresented in technology.

As part of our efforts to broaden participation in CS research careers and make them more accessible to everyone, we accepted 37 outstanding undergraduates to Google’s CS Research Mentorship Program (CSRMP) this fall. The program encourages students to pursue graduate and doctorate-level CS studies by matching them with Google mentors. As the students work toward their goals, they attend a CS research conference and travel to Mountain View as guests for the PhD Fellowship Summit.

We caught up with Sam Steinberg, a junior in Information Science at Cornell University, to learn about her journey to the program and what she wants to accomplish with CS research. 

Sam Steinberg

Sam Steinberg was accepted into Google’s CS Research Mentorship Program this year

What led you to CS?

At six years old, I walked into my room and threw the family laptop onto the ceramic floor. I wanted to  see its insides, and there they were: circuits, capacitors, resistors and motors scattered like cookie crumbs across the ground. While my parents were certainly upset about the mess I made (sorry mom and dad!), I was in awe, and that’s how my love affair with technology began.

What were some defining moments in your CS journey?

In high school, I was the only girl in my CS classes. After a Girls Who Code summer program, I started a club at my school. I found that so much of learning difficulty doesn’t have to do with the content, but the environment in which you absorb material. In the Girls Who Code club, I felt undaunted to ask questions, work alongside my peers, and help teach other girls. 

One of the most humbling moments was being named the inaugural winner of The Society of Women Engineers SWENext Award. As a young Latina aspiring to work in tech, it was eye-opening to learn about the discrepancies in retention for minorities in STEM. SWE has helped further instill my passion for advocating about the importance of gender and ethinic diversity in STEM fields.

Why are you interested in CS research?

I'm a 5 foot 2 Puerto Rican Jew with a lisp, and the career aspirations of Shuri, the female engineer from Black Panther. Like any Marvel hero, I want to change the world, but not by shooting laser beams to defeat the bad guys. I’ve always been fascinated with how technology can be used as a tool to help others, especially how those with cognitive and learning disabilities can maintain focus and relaxation in school and daily life.

What do you hope to accomplish during the CS Research Mentorship Program? 

My latest project is called illuMATE, a bracelet designed for children with autism and other developmental disabilities that monitors heart rate via an Arduino pulse sensor. When it detects a spike in heart rate, it sends a series of customizable vibrations down the child’s wrist to help them relax. Touch-pressure and vibration technology has been clinically proven to help those with autism de-stress. My goal with CSRMP is to work with my mentor Rachel to further develop my project and framework with supporting research, and learn more about how product management works at Google.

We are humbled to support such exceptional students as they pursue CS research careers. Look for these 37 names in future headlines as they confront our greatest challenges (and solve them).

OSGeoLive Distro Opens Doors to Geospatial Worlds

 Cache   

OSGeoLive is a unique Linux distro. It pulls together a large library of Linux tools and applications that support geospatial workloads. It is not designed to be a general usability Linux operating system, but if you add the software it's missing, you can happily use it for other computing tasks.

I was particularly intrigued by some of its standalone applications and Web app offerings. Browsing through this distro's feature tools was a fun-filled discovery experience.

Nothing needed to be set up or configured. One click led to another. With each new screen came interesting information that teased my inquisitive mind. The experience actually sparked an interest in the world of geospatial elements.

Cleverly Reimagined Slax Distro Pushes Portable Linux's Limits

Slax runs on a wide range of different file systems, including EXT (ext2,ext3,ext4), btrfs, and even FAT and NTFS.

It took me about one hour to download the must-have computing applications and accessory tools that fit my needs. The installation of each program takes longer than a distro installed to a hard drive. USB drives are much slower than an internal hard drive.

Once I had all of my needed software up and running, I generally was pleased with how Slax Linux performed.

Slax is not a perfect Linux platform, at least not yet -- but for me its convenience and flexibility outweigh its current shortcomings.

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

We cast two algorithms to generate the inorder and preorder of the labels of a binary tree in the context of reversible computing nearly three decades after they were first examined in the light of program inversion. The reversible traversals directly define the inverse algorithms that reconstruct the binary tree and have the same linear time and space requirements as the traversals. A reversible while-language is extended with reversible recursion-

Agricultural cropland extent and areas of South Asia derived using Landsat satellite 30-m time-series big-data using random forest machine learning algorithms on the Google Earth Engine cloud

 Cache   
The South Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bhutan) has a staggering 900 million people (~43% of the population) who face food insecurity or severe food insecurity as per United Nations, Food and Agriculture Organization’s (FAO) the Food Insecurity Experience Scale (FIES). The existing coarse-resolution (>250-m) cropland maps lack precision in geo-location of individual farms and have low map accuracies. This also results in uncertainties in cropland areas calculated from such products. Thereby, the overarching goal of this study was to develop high spatial resolution (30-m or better) baseline cropland extent product of South Asia for the year 2015 using Landsat satellite time-series big-data and machine learning algorithms (MLAs) on the Google Earth Engine (GEE) cloud computing platform. To eliminate the impact of clouds, ten time-composited Landsat bands (blue, green, red, NIR, SWIR1, SWIR2, Thermal, EVI, NDVI, NDWI) were derived for each of the 3 time-periods over 12 months (monsoon: Julian days 151-300; winter: Julian days 301-365 plus 1-60; and summer: Julian days 61-150), taking the every 8-day data from Landsat-8 and 7 for the years 2013-2015, for a total of 30-bands plus global digital elevation model (GDEM) derived slope band. This 31-band mega-file big data-cube was composed for each of the 5 agro-ecological zones (AEZ’s) of South Asia and formed a baseline data for image classification and analysis. Knowledge-base for the Random Forest (RF) MLAs were developed using spatially well spread-out reference training data (N=2179) in 5 AEZs. Classification was performed on GEE for each of the 5 AEZs using well-established knowledge-based and RF MLAs on the cloud. Map accuracies were measured using independent validation data (N=1185).

Challenge Workshop: Mathematical Modeling of Biomedical Problems

 Cache   
<p>From December 12 to 13, 2019 the Challenge Workshop "Mathematical Modeling of Biomedical Problems" will take place in Erlangen Castle. Experts from universities and industry will present current approaches and mathematical challenges in the field of biomedicine. The goal is to identify current and future areas of need for MSO research, to spur innovation by creating new research collaborations and bridge different fields of application that can be tackled by similar mathematical approaches.</p> <p>Mathematical modeling and computing in biomedicine is a key ingredient for future developments in the field. Challenges arise from the complexity of the underlying biology and other chemical and physical techniques involved in medical diagnosis and treatment. From a clinical perspective, mathematical models are desired to improve and quantify the understanding and treatment of diseases, while from an industrial perspective they are needed to design and improve devices or drugs. This calls for a diversity of mathematical techniques ranging from differential equations and stochastics to image processing and data analysis, which need to be brought together in order to tackle relevant problems.<br /> <br /> The event is organized by the Technical University of Kaiserslautern, the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) and the project "Programme-associated Activities", which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The workshop is supported by the Committee for Mathematical Modeling, Simulation and Optimization (KoMSO e.V.).</p>

Junk or Treasure? We Tested Amazon’s Cheapest Black Friday Desktop PC, only $60!

 Cache   

Some Black Friday deals are wild. A store might offer only a couple of units of a particular TV, discounted by 66%. There might be a few pieces of a flagship smartphone at your local electronics store at half price. These are designed to entice customers through the door, and if you’re brave enough, ensure the cold for up to 12 hours to get that bargain of the year. But one of the key observations about looking at Amazon’s Computing and Components section every Black Friday, particularly this year, is that most of the discounts are for complete trash. After the headline external storage discounts, it’s just page after page of USB cables and smartphone holders. But one thing did catch my eye: an entire PC, for only £57 / $61! How can an entire x86 desktop PC be sold for so little? We did the only thing worth doing: we purchased it.


          

Two Phase Immersion Liquid Cooling at Supercomputing 2019

 Cache   

It would now appear we are saturated with two phase immersion liquid cooling (2PILC) – pun intended. One common element from the annual Supercomputing trade show, as well as the odd system at Computex and Mobile World Congress, is the push from some parts of the industry towards fully immersed systems in order to drive cooling. Last year at SC19 we saw a large number of systems featuring this technology – this year the presence was limited to a few key deployments.


          

Spotted at Supercomputing 2019: A 256 GB Gen-Z Memory Module

 Cache   

As a millennial, everything in the media that ‘Gen Z’ does often gets lumped into the millennial category. Thankfully there’s another type of Gen-Z in the world: the cache coherent memory-semantic standard. Where standards like CXL are designed to work inside a node, CXL is meant to work between nodes, providing a switched fabric or a point-to-point connectivity for memory, storage, accelerators, and even other servers.

Earlier this year we saw the announcement of a Gen-Z switch which provides a fabric backbone to which hardware can be connected. The switch allows for fabric management, switching, routing, and security, and allows hardware configuration mixes of storage, compute, and accelerators. We found one such add-on at this year’s Supercomputing: the ZMM, or Gen-Z Memory Module.

What we had in front of us was actually a dummy unit for show purposes, but it is a 3-inch wide memory device that adds additional distributed memory to the network such that different nodes can take advantage of it when needed. Inside is 256 GB of DRAM, providing 30 GB/s bandwidth through the Gen-Z interface: that’s the equivalent of dual channel DDR4-1866. The total latency is listed as 400 ns which is an order of magnitude slower than main memory. Ultimately this is slower than traditional memory-controller supported DRAM, but aims to be faster than network attached storage.


We also saw marketing for a PCIe Gen 5.0 compatible Gen-Z Connector

With these modules, ultimately the goal of Gen-Z is to have a 4U unit in a rack that customers can install any number of memory modules, storage drives, accelerators, or other compute resources, without worrying about exactly where they are in the system or how the system can access them. The Gen-Z consortium is aiming for ‘rack-scale compatibility’, and wants to be able to make these rack-level adjustments seemless to existing ecosystems without OS changes.

Intel and MediaTek Announce Partnership To Bring 5G Modems to PCs

 Cache   

Today Intel has announced they’ve entered a partnership with MediaTek with the goal of “development, certification and support of 5G modem solutions” for next generation PC platforms. The announcement comes 5 months after the announcement that Intel is selling off its own modem and division to Apple for $1B.

The partnership with MediaTek clears up Intel’s plans for the future of connectivity on PC platforms, and how the company is planning to go forward with supporting cellular connectivity in the next generations of devices.

“5G is poised to unleash a new level of computing and connectivity that will transform the way we interact with the world. This partnership with MediaTek brings together industry leaders with deep engineering, system integration and connectivity expertise to deliver 5G experiences on the next generation of the world’s best PCs.”

-- Gregory Bryant, Intel executive vice president and general manager of the Client Computing

What is surprising about the announcement isn’t that Intel is partnering with an external supplier, but rather that MediaTek has managed to get the design win, rather than the usual suspects such as Qualcomm or Samsung. Under the deal, Intel is said to “define” the 5G solution specification that will be developed and delivered by MediaTek. The wording of the announcement sounds more akin to a semi-custom deal, rather than just MediaTek providing their own product design or part which was on their roadmap. Depending on the specifications and how it diverges from MediaTek’s existing portfolio, the company’s willingness to enter such a deal with Intel might be a reason they won the contract, as maybe Qualcomm and Samsung wouldn’t be that open to such a collaboration.

While MediaTek will be wholly responsible for the design and manufacturing of the modem, Intel will be working on the platform-side integration as well as OS host driver development. Fibocom will also be cooperating with Intel and MediaTek to develop M.2 modules with the new chipset and integrating them with Intel’s client platforms.  

The first products of the partnership are said to be targeting availability in early 2021.

VMware выпустила новую версию решения VMware PKS 1.6 - что там интересного?

 Cache   

Недавно компания VMware анонсировала новую версию платформы PKS 1.6 (Pivotal Container Service), которая предназначена для управления инфраструктурой контейнеров приложений на базе Kubernetes. Напомним, что это решение является в данный момент основным, пока еще не выпущена платформа Project Pacific, которая будет интегрировать классическую виртуальную инфраструктуру ВМ и средства исполнения и оркестрации контейнеров.

Напомним, что о прошлой версии VMware PKS 1.5 мы писали вот тут, а сегодня посмотрим, что нового появилось в PKS 1.6.

1. Финальная доступность Enterprise PKS Management Console.

Эта консоль позволяет выполнять множество задач администратора, включая управление пользователями и жизненным циклом продукта, обзор компонентов решения, настройку интеграций и многое другое. Вот, собственно, основные возможности консоли:

Развертывание

  • Единый установщик в виде виртуального модуля OVA для всех необходимых компонентов.
  • Установка на базе интерактивного мастера.
  • Встроенные возможности валидации, предпроверок, автозаполнение полей и прочее.
  • Поддержка настройки интеграции с различными решениями (VMware vRealize Operations, Wavefront, Syslog, vRealize Log Insight и Harbor).

Оперирование

  • Управление жизненным циклом всех компонентов VMware Enterprise PKS (апгрейды и патчинг).
  • Управление пользователями и настройка RBAC из графического интерфейса.
  • Единая точка просмотра всех компонентов Kubernetes и нижележащей инфраструктуры.
  • Управление изменениями конфигурации через UI и файлы YAML.

Вот как выглядит работа в консоли:

2. Интеграция с VMware Tanzu Mission Control.

На прошедшем VMworld 2019 компания VMware анонсировала Project Tanzu - единую операционную консоль для кластеров Kubernetes, которая позволит контролировать все аспекты жизненного цикла приложений. В том числе эта консоль позволит контролировать кластеры Kubernetes под управлением решения PKS в рамках нескольких облачных инфраструктур и команд разработки/DevOps.

Интеграция находится в режиме беты, но уже сейчас при создании кластеров в PKS, они автоматически добавляются в Tanzu Mission Control, и пользователи могут централизованно управлять как кластерами PKS, так и другими окружениями.

3. Поддержка Kubernetes 1.15 и Harbor 1.9.

VMware Enterprise PKS 1.6 поставляется с Kubernetes версии 1.15, который прошел тест Kubernetes conformance организации Cloud Native Computing Foundation. Kubernetes 1.15 имеет улучшения производительности, улучшения стабильности и использования кастомных ресурсов. Более подробно об этом рассказано здесь.

Также продукт теперь поддерживает релиз Harbor 1.9, где появились такие возможности, как tag retention, квоты проектов, нотификации через webhook, таргеты репликации для сервисов реестра для облачных провайдеров, политики CVE и интеграция с syslog.

4. Операционная гибкость.

VMware Enterprise PKS 1.6 дает пользователям Kubernetes использовать механизм custom resource definition (CRD) для получения статуса состояния сетевых объектов и плагина CNI в кластерах. Также он предоставляет возможность включить логирование для правила NSX-T Firewall Deny Rule, поэтому операторы будут знать когда пакеты будут сбрасываться или отклоняться. Также поддерживается несколько типов отправки событий - Telegraf, Splunk и Elasticsearch.

5. Программа телеметрии.

Эта программа позволяет текущим пользователям создавать отчеты на базе данных об использовании инфраструктуры VMware Enterprise PKS. Например, пользователи могут создавать отчеты об использовании ими ресурсов PKS во времени, коэффициенты успеха/неудач операций и их длительность, проводить аудит записей об образах контейнеров в кластерах Kubernetes и многое другое.

Более подробно о продукте VMware PKS 1.6 рассказано на этой странице, скачать его можно тут. Также о новых возможностях решения можно почитать в блоге Pivotal.

Woodstock High School student attends United Nations entrepreneur summit

 Cache   
A Woodstock High School senior said she was inspired by her visit to the United Nations for the annual Women’s Entrepreneurship Summit in New York City.

Destiny Flores was selected by business teacher Dustin Smith to attend the conference during the weekend of Nov. 15 as a guest of Jen Soulé, president of Woodstock-based Other World Computing. The Mac and PC technology firm brought Flores and another teenage girl to the summit from Woodstock and Austin, Texas, where the company has another office.

“It was amazing,” Flores said. “There was a lot going on. I’d never been to New York before. It was very busy, and everyone was very professional, but I felt like I fit in with that business environment.”

“I met a lot of really good people,” she added.

Flores said she learned a lot from panel discussions on topics such as microloans, women in technology and how to properly invest.

“It was good to hear that these very successful women felt like even young girls like myself are something that’s worth investing in because we’re able to use both our decision-making skills and also see the emotional side of things, not just the numbers,” Flores said.

She said Soulé, who participated in a panel discussion about female entrepreneurs in the technology industry, was inspiring as a powerful woman in a smaller town like Woodstock who overcame perceptions about women in a leadership role.

“Women across the globe are statistically the world’s most responsible borrowers, paying back microbusiness loans at a rate of 97%, and they put 90% of their earnings into providing for their families and their children’s education,” Soulé said. “We are honored to take part in this event, to continue to support the advancement of women globally, and to be able to bring a few inventive young women with us to New York, as they will be the next generation to take on the mantle of making a difference worldwide.”

Smith said Destiny was an excellent student in his INCubator class and an obvious choice for the summit because of her drive, passion and love of networking.

“Destiny was the first one who came to mind. She’s really passionate about women entrepreneurs,” he said. “She’s extremely passionate about business. She’s probably taken every business class we have to offer.”

Destiny said she hopes to attend Illinois State University next fall and major in business administration with a minor in art history. Her dream is to open her own art gallery someday.

Distributed Bernoulli Filtering for Target Detection and Tracking Based on Arithmetic Average Fusion

 Cache   
We present a distributed Bernoulli filter for tracking a target that may be present or absent in the cluttered surveillance area in unknown time intervals by using a decentralized sensor network. As a key feature of the Bernoulli filter, a parameter referring to the target existence probability is online updated jointly with the target state probability density function. We propose to fuse them in parallel, both in an arithmetic average fusion manner via the standard consensus or flooding scheme. Alternatively, one may communicate and fuse merely target existence probabilities, leading to a communication-inexpensive protocol. We experimentally compare the proposed approaches, based on the Gaussian mixture implementation of the Bernoulli filter, with the cutting-edge geometric average fusion approach based on a Doppler shift sensor network. Advantages are observed in computing efficiency and in dealing with local missed detection.

Remembering The Home Computer Christmas Wars of 1983

 Cache   
"1983 had seen an explosion of home computer models of varying capabilities and at various price-points," remembers the vintage computing site Paleotronic, looking back at the historic tech battle between Commodore, Texas Instruments, and eventually Coleco. Slashdot reader beaverdownunder shares the site's fond remembrance of the days when "The question on everyone's minds was not who was going to win, but who would survive." Commodore's Jack Tramiel saw an emerging market for low-cost home computers, releasing the VIC-20 in 1980. At a US$299 price point sales were initially modest, but rival Texas Instruments, making a play for the bottom of the market, would heavily discount its TI99/4A, and start a price war with Commodore that culminated with both computers selling as low as $US99. Only one company was going to walk away... [W]hile TI spokesperson Bill Cosby joked about how easy it was to sell a computer when you gave people US$100 to buy one, Jack Tramiel wasn't going to take this lying down, and he dropped the price of the VIC-20 to US$200 in order to match TI. However, unlike TI, who was selling the 4A at a loss in order to gain market share, Commodore wasn't losing any money at all, since it owned MOS Technology, the maker of many of the chips inside of the VIC-20, and as a result got all of those components at cost. Meanwhile TI was paying full price and haemorrhaging cash on every model sold. You would think TI might have realised they were playing a fool's game and back off but instead after Tramiel dropped the wholesale price of the VIC-20 to US$130 they went all-in, dropping the 4A's retail price to $150. Commodore went to $100, and TI matched it, with many retailers selling both machines for $99. Inside TI, Cosby's joke stopped being funny, and many wondered whether management had dug them into a hole they could never climb out of... After all the dust had settled, the only real winner was Commodore. It fended off all of its competitors and cemented the Commodore 64 as the low-budget 8-bit computer everyone wanted their parents to buy.

O que é CAPEX? O que é OPEX?

 Cache   
CAPEX é uma abreviação das palavras Capital Expenditure, Por isso, para saber o que é Capex é necessário entender o que Capital Expediture.




CAPEX é o termo que multinacionais e empresas nacionais internacionalizadas utilizam para designar o Plano de Investimentos.

Em https://corporatefinanceinstitute.com/resources/knowledge/modeling/how-to-calculate-capex-formula/   encontramos: 

"CapEx (abreviação de investimentos ) é o dinheiro investido por uma empresa na aquisição, manutenção ou melhoria de ativos fixos, como propriedades, prédios, fábricas, equipamentos e tecnologia.

Fórmula CapEx

A fórmula do CapEx da demonstração de resultados e do balanço é:
CapEx = imobilizado (período atual) - imobilizado (período anterior) + depreciação (período atual)

Essa fórmula é derivada da lógica de que o imobilizado do período atual no balanço patrimonial é igual ao imobilizado do período anterior mais despesas de capital menos depreciação." 



Recentemente um diretor de uma empresa produtora de bens de capital me perguntou o queriam dizer como: Estamos aguardando liberação do CAPEX para lhe mandar pedidos.

O EX da palavra CAPEX deriva de expenditure que significa gastos. Em uma empresa os gastos quando ocorrem em função de investimentos são classificados como CAPEX, mas se os gastos ocorrerem devido a operação da empresa, como no caso de despesas de manutenção, tais gastos são classificados como OPEX que significa Operating Expenses,  Vejam a figura abaixo:





Vejam também o chart abaixo com as principais diferenças entre CAPEX e OPEX

Fonte da tabela acima: https://www.2ndwatch.com/blog/cloud-computing-shift-from-capex-to-opex/

Isso significa que a empresa aguarda autorização para efetuar um potencial investimento previsto no Plano de Investimentos, todavia ainda não liberado.

É comum que os CAPEX sejam detalhados por projetos os quais são liberados um a um.

Uma vez liberado algum projeto previsto no CAPEX deve-se elaborar um projeto e monitorar cada cada etapa.   O Acompanhamento entre os investimentos previstos e os gastos reais deve ser feito de forma criterioso. Na boas empresas as mínimas diferenças precisam ser justificadas.

Exemplos de CAPEX  Fonte: https://www.accountingtools.com/articles/examples-of-capital-expenditures.html

Um dispêndio de capital refere-se à despesa de fundos para um ativo que se espera que forneça utilidade a um negócio por mais de um período de relatório. Exemplos de gastos de capital são os seguintes:
  • Edifícios (incluindo custos subsequentes que prolongam a vida útil de um edifício)
  • Equipamento computador
  • Equipamento de escritório
  • Móveis e utensílios (incluindo o custo de mobília que é agregado e tratado como uma única unidade, como um grupo de mesas)
  • Ativos intangíveis (como uma licença ou patente de táxi comprada)
  • Terra (incluindo o custo de modernizar a terra, como o custo de um sistema de irrigação ou de um estacionamento)
  • Maquinário (incluindo os custos necessários para levar o equipamento ao local pretendido e ao uso pretendido)
  • Programas
  • Veículos
Um gasto é registrado como despesa conforme 

IAS 16 / CPC 27 - Ativos Imobilizados

Imobilizações em andamento deverão ser contabilizados em conta específica
Vejam abaixo texto extraído de http://www.iob.com.br/noticiadb.asp?area=contabil&noticia=86632
Contabilidade - Imobilizado em andamento
Publicado em 14/04/2008 08:41
Na conta que registra a imobilização em andamento serão lançados todos os gastos relativos à obra (materiais, mão-de-obra e respectivos encargos sociais etc).
Segue exemplo de registro contábil dos gastos incorridos na construção de um determinado imóvel que comporá o Ativo Permanente.
Registro de gastos incorridos com a obra:
D - Construções em Andamento (AP - Imobilizado)

C - Caixa ou Bancos Conta Movimento (AC)
R$ 10.000,00

Concluída a obra, o saldo da conta “Construções em Andamento” será transferido para a conta definitiva do Ativo Imobilizado.

AC = Ativo Circulante
AP = Ativo Permanente
OPEX

A maioria das despesas rotineiras nos negócios são "despesas operacionais". As empresas planejam, autorizam e orçam OPEX de maneira diferente das despesas de capital.

O que é uma despesa operacional?

Nos negócios, o termo despesa operacional ( OPEX ) aparece em orçamentos e gastos, mas também como um termo de demonstração de resultados em contabilidade financeira.
Em resumo, "despesas operacionais" incluem a maioria das despesas para operar a linha de negócios usual da empresa - despesas que não são despesas de capital. As despesas operacionais não resultam em ativos de capital. Em vez disso, eles servem inteiramente para - não surpreendentemente - "operar" os negócios. Os contadores calculam "lucros" subtraindo as despesas do período das receitas recebidas do período.

Explicando despesas operacionais em contexto

Este artigo define e explica as Despesas operacionais em contexto com termos e conceitos relacionados, com foco em três temas:

  • Primeiro, Despesas operacionais uma categoria de despesa nos relatórios financeiros, especialmente para a demonstração de resultados.
  • Segundo, o papel das despesas operacionais na criação de economia de impostos para as empresas que pagam impostos sobre o lucro operacional.
  • Terceiro, usando o conceito Despesa Operacional no orçamento e no planejamento de gastos.

Finest Pies

 Cache   

onion cassette pie, stimulant cherry pie, cowdy-doo pie

People wonder about what it would be like if a super-intelligent AI decided to place all of humanity in a realistic simulation. I wonder what it would be like if the simulation were built by today’s AI instead - whose computing power is somewhere around the level of an earthworm’s.

Specifically, what would the pies be like?

In 2017 and 2018 I gave increasingly powerful neural networks about 2000 names of existing pie recipes, and their imitations included Caribou Meringue, Mur’s Tartless Tart, and Cromberry Yaas.


Caribou Meringue, Mur’s Tartless Tart, and Cromberry Yaas

But there are now even more advanced neural nets, including GPT-2, many times larger and pretrained on millions of pages from the internet. When I used gpt-2-simple to train the smallest version of GPT-2 (145M) on the list of pies, even it was able to come up with plausible (and highly repetitive) pies, many copied from the list I gave it. I can’t blame it for being a smartass and giving me the pies right back - technically this is a perfect solution to its task of “name some pies”.

I have ways of messing with the neural net, however. One thing I can do is increase the chaos level of the text it’s generating (in this case, called the “temperature”), forcing it to go with its less-likely guesses. Another thing I can do is give it weird text to complete. When I’m asking it to generate more text, I can give it a few example pies and ask it to add to the list (the original list of pies I showed it was alphabetical, so if I give it apple pies it tends to respond with more apple pies). OR, I can give it much weirder text. If I give it a bit of Harry Potter fanfiction, it draws on its previous training and can continue the story. But, similarly to the version of GPT-2 I trained on crochet patterns, it tends to twist the stories around to its special interest. In this case, pie.

Prompt: Harry glared at Snape.

Harry glared at Snape.
“No, I’m not even talking about the boy here. You’re talking about the duplicate.”
“Fine. Then I’ll get the rest of the ingredients.”
So then, they got canned fruit and whipped cream and whipped cream and whipped cream and whipped cream and whipped cream and whipped cream and whipped cream.
But one thing was for sure: there was no trace of rum.
There was.

Prompt: Voldemort ran his fingers gently over Darth Vader’s shoulder.

Voldemort ran his fingers gently over Darth Vader’s shoulder. “C-Custard”
“C-Custard”

Once it has steered the conversation, the neural net transitions to listing pies. Although some of them retain a certain flavor.

Voldemort Crumble Pie
Mudblood Mincemeat Pies
Snape Pie With Cheese

And its other pies are indeed more creative, definitely not found in the original training set. They don’t sound exactly delicious to me, but maybe this advanced artificial intelligence knows something we don’t. After all, it read most of the internet, including the cooking blogs.

Syrupy Chicken Pie
Camel Crunch Crunch

Pie-Bro From Pizza Particles

On the other hand, maybe just maybe the neural net doesn’t know what it’s doing. These seem like uniformly a bad idea.

Juan Pablo Vielma — Mixed Integer Programming Methods for Machine Learning and Statistics, Dec 2

 Cache   
Abstract: More than 50 years of development have made mixed integer programming (MIP) an extremely successful tool. MIP’s modeling flexibility allows it describe a wide range of business, engineering and scientific problems, and, while MIP is NP-hard, many of these problems are routinely solved in practice thanks to state-of-the-art solvers that nearly double their machine-independent speeds every year. In this talk we show how a careful application of MIP modeling techniques can lead to extremely effective MIP-based methods for three problems in machine learning and statistics.

The first problem concerns causal inference of treatment effects in observational studies [1]. For this problem we introduce a MIP-based matching method that directly balances covariates for multi-variate treatments and produces samples that are representative of a target population. We show how using the right MIP formulation for the problem is critical for large data sets, and illustrate the effectiveness of the resulting approach by estimating the effect that the different intensities of the 2010 Chilean earthquake had on educational outcomes. The second problem concerns the design of adaptive questionnaires for consumer preference elicitation [2]. For this problem we introduce an approximate Bayesian method for the design of the questionnaires, which can significantly reduce the variance of the estimates obtained for certain consumer preference parameters. We show how carefully modeling the associated question selection using MIP is crucial to achieving the required near-realtime selection of the next question asked to the consumer. The third problem concerns certifying that a trained neural network is robust to adversarial attacks [3]. For this problem we introduce strong MIP formulations that can significantly reduce the computational time needed to achieve the certification.

Hardcore Hardware Control and Tips

@TNT_BOM_BOM wrote:

  • Steps to have them done might be tough but this is what at the moment best way to handle hardware at the market

  • Not all of them might be applicable on your pc

  • Remove = Physically cut <-- if its not possible then --> Disable = Physical burning/melting of the chip/object or from BIOS level NOT within the Operating System (OS).

A- Control Hardware by Hardware not through Software

Note: Dont switch the replacements as a wireless adapters , use always wire adapters because many of these bluetooth wireless adapters are transmitted in unencrypted way and can be attacked from wide rang.

1- Remove/Disable internal microphone (unless it come with proper kill switch) and buy new one from outside and plug it out once you finished using it

2- Remove/Disable internal speakers and buy new one from outside and plug it out once you finished using it because internal speakers can be turned into spying microphone:

3- Remove/Disable internal camera (unless it come with proper kill switch) and buy new one from outside and plug it out once you finished using it. Putting tape on the camera is not enough because some of them might have sensors like body heat sensors (infrared like) , heart rating …etc (there was a video show that but either deleted or hidden by google on youtube or i cant find it)

4- Remove/Disable internal bluetooth (unless it come with proper kill switch) and buy new one from outside and plug it out once you finished using it. Sometimes bluetooth comes built-in with motherboard , well try to disable it from BIOS rather than keeping it open (better to use external hardware like flash/hard drive when transmitting data)

5- Remove/Disable internal Wireless/WiMax (unless it come with proper kill switch) and buy new one from outside and plug it out once you finished using it. Better to always use wire/ethernet connection rather than wireless/wifi (recommended by Edward Snowden)

6- Remove/Disable internal GPS chip

7- Remove/Disable any touch/fingerprint stuff on keyboard,screen…

8- Careful when using/buying headphones make sure they come with microphone kill switch or get only audio headphone and buy the microphone separately (you can remove microphone physically from it if possible) plus make sure it using wire connection.

(Remove as much possible all the radio/waves that your pc produces)

B- Remove internal battery of your laptop and use only cable to make sure that the pc turned off and the memory wiped off to avoid memory forensic

C- Use Free or Open Source (might be with blobs) BIOSs

D- Use Free/Open Hardware Processors

Well there arent much yet (specially for laptops) but here are places to get an idea:

E- Avoid x86 Intel processors

F- Dont sell your flash or your external hard drive and you have used them before, and dont sell your pc without either changing the hard drive with new one or sell it without hard drive. If you have any used storage hardware and you dont need it then destroy it entirely (Burn/Melt it or cut/grind it or dissolve it using chemicals…etc)

G- There are markets that sell external hardware tools compatible with GNU/Linux without blobs e.g:

Extra Tips:

  • Avoid multibooting specially with malware OSs like Microsoft Windows as that might lead to make /boot in bye bye way.
  • Qubes OS solves alot of these untrusted hardware issues even with external adapters
  • Watch Jacob Appelbaum great speech about NSA crazy hacking methods/tools

    Where computing takes you...

     Cache   
    Do you ever have those afternoons you get a ”great” idea and you've all the evening time for that task. The task is a relaxing one and won't need much attention, and you can watch a movie or something.  But then, it happens that the evening turns into night as you realize a couple of little details adding complexity to the idea, and the task turns out to be much more invasive to your evening than you thought?

    In this example, I got the great idea to upgrade my Debian running NAS device (thanks Martin for everything!) to use ext4 instead of ext3. The kind of idea that takes a long time for relatively little practical benefit, but it just feels like a nice thing do when you've the extra amounts of nerd time available. It's basically just opening the NAS device up, mounting its hard disk to a laptop via external case, running the tune2fs and fsck then putting the disk back. It just takes a long time for the initial fsck (to make sure everything's intact) and then the required fsck run to get ext4 mountable.

    Only in this situation, it would have been beneficial to have the ext4 support in the flashed initramfs before the migration. So... before the photo below, I've already:
    1. done the ext4 migration and fsck:s
    2. screwed the disk back to the NAS case, attached cables and found that it doesn't boot
    3. (on the laptop with the hard disk attached again tried manually unpacking initramfs and adding ext4 module... also had time to bind mount everything and chroot into the ARM system to run update-initramfs manually... also tried booting with those... until remembered the simple fact that the /boot partition is only for show and also the initramfs is loaded directly from flash)
    4. copied the main root filesystem content from the original disk to another external disk with ext3 partition
    5. attached the another disk (with same UUID:s) to the QNAP NAS device, booted, double-checked that I have now ext4 specified under /etc/initramfs-tools/modules, reconfigured the linux image that also regenerates initramfs and flashes it
    And in the photo, what's happening is that:
    1. I've again the original disk reattached and system booted with the initramfs generated and flashed from the ext3 disk
    2. the NAS device is hanging in the air, cover open, from the closet where I've things stuffed in (normally secured with cable ties), and I need to support it with a knee or one hand since the 2TB disk is much heavier than the small SSD I used as the ext3 disk so the power cable and RJ-45 cable would have pretty heavy load
    3. Since I've only one hand in use and can't use a laptop, I'm logging in via my Nokia N9 and then reflashing the kernel + initramfs from this original disk, just to make sure everything is now alright and also after that flashing it still boots (it does!). Note that I feel like the setup is secure enough for non-interrupted flashing so that I can indeed support the NAS with a knee, use one hand to keep N9 and another hand to take a photo with a camera.

    And so we have had a productive and educating afternoon/evening/night once again. Does this ever happen to you?
              

    How to make a small server for your home (no replies)

    How to make a small server for your home
    Servers are just computers without screens and keyboards, but they can be relatively cheap to buy, compared with the costs of renting a Virtual Private Server (VPS) in the cloud.

    Storage can quickly become expensive in a cloud instance, but hard drives with over 1TB capacity cost less than US$50.

    With that in mind, let’s look at how to build a home server so you can cut down on expensive online storage space.

    A step-by-step guide to installing a home server
    1. Start with a simple computer with an inexpensive or integrated graphics processor (in case you want to show some statistics or graphics on a monitor later).

    2. Hook the computer to a screen and keyboard (just for the installation process, that way you won’t need to learn how to install Ubuntu via the network).

    3. Install Ubuntu with the minimum requirements and enable ssh and open a port in the built-in firewall. It’s quite important that you disable password-based login via ssh, and it is not recommended to make the open port accessible to the general internet. Instead, keep your home server behind a physical firewall like a router and only forward the ports that you want to be accessible for everyone.

    4. Once ssh is enabled, you can log into your home server from your laptop, as long as you are on the same network.

    Some awesome things to do with your new home server
    The following suggestions are relatively easy if you are comfortable with a command line. You will be required to edit configuration files, but not to program yourself.

    Host your own Tor .onion service
    Ratings table: 1 point for bandwidth, 1 point for computing power, 1 point for storage

    How much computing power you consume will, of course, depend on what you are hosting, and your bandwidth requirements depend on how many people visit your site. But for a simple personal website, your needs won’t be very high. All you need is the code for your website, a web server (like nginx or apache), and the tor software.

    Host a chat service

    Ratings table: 1 point for bandwidth, 1 point for computing power, 1 point for storage

    A chat service like ejabberd is easy to install, but can be tedious to configure. Sadly, there are also fewer people using Jabber/XMPP as people migrate to centralized mobile platforms, despite the excellent encryption feature of OTR.

    Run a Tor node
    Ratings table: 2 points for bandwidth, 3 points for computing power, 1 point for storage

    Installing and configuring a tor node is among the simplest things you can do and is an excellent service to privacy. Be careful though, if the location of your hidden service really needs to be secret, don’t run a relay and a hidden service at the same time.

    If you’re on a residential connection, you might also not want to run an exit node, as this could make it appear as if other people use your internet connection for nefarious things. If you are in a country where you can be held liable for what others do on your IP, just set up a relay instead.

    Run a Bitcoin node
    Ratings table: 3 points for bandwidth, 3 points for computing power, 3 points for storage

    Your small home server will likely need a storage extension to run Bitcoin, which has reached 170GB and will grow at about 40-80GB per year (perhaps even more, if the community can ever come to a consensus on a block size increase).

    Running a Bitcoin node is an excellent idea if you’re trying to verify the integrity of the network for yourself, for example, if you receive Bitcoin payments regularly, or if you invest in it. Otherwise, running a full node can just be your small contribution to the decentralization of tomorrow’ financial infrastructure. Bravo, you!

    Run a lightning node
    Unlike running a Tor or Bitcoin node, a Lightning node is mainly for you. You can’t use it for much right now, but the promise of instant, low-cost Bitcoin transactions is undoubtedly intriguing. To run a lightning node, you will also need to run a Bitcoin node, though you can cut down on its bandwidth requirements by not relaying blocks or transactions.

    Run your own servers to decentralize the web
    The internet is becoming more and more centralized as applications and data get pushed into the cloud. With just a dozen large cloud providers around the world, they are more able than ever to spy on us and even deny us access to our email, data, or communications.

    By putting our data back in our homes, we can slowly take back our rights from those in control of our privacy.
    When comes to the issue of online privacy and security, let recommend a toof called VPN. RitaVPN is a relatively new VPN service, but it’s already making a name for itself. Its features include split tunneling, double encryption, kill switch protection, makes it one of the unblock websites in 2019. Qwer432

    ProcessOne: Building Realtime Streaming Architectures

     Cache   

    Realtime is not only about client interactions. We have been using XMPP & MQTT since a long time to connect people and things together.

    However, there is another use case for realtime that is a little less known: realtime streaming architectures. This is a design pattern that you can use to make the core of your applications or your information system realtime.

    The principle is simple: you decouple components into isolated services that talk to each other through a data bus, very often Kafka, using the publish & subscribe pattern.

    This approach is very powerful, as you can tolerate a component being down for a short maintenance, with the confidence that the system will catch up. The pattern is also useful to tune the computing capacity at each stage of the processing pipeline. And finally, the pattern is also popular to decouple services and make them able to evolve independently.

    This is just the technical benefits, but from a high level business perspective, it simply means that you get a more resilient system, that is able to process events in realtime, with a system serving as a basis of new innovative offerings for customers. This leads to a significant business edge.

    I had already presented back in 2017 at DotGo Conference what we we had been doing, at a technical level, to build realtime streaming architectures:

    Today, we are able to share more by publishing a case study, showing the type of architecture we have been building for Colissimo, a leading postal service in France. Go ahead and read Colissimo case study.

    Do not hesitate to contact us, if you need guidance on how to build, improve, troubleshoot or rework such an architecture.

    A Network's Weakest Link May be Different Than you Think

     Cache   

    When asked which part of their network is the weakest or most unreliable, I’d be willing to bet that most network admins would respond by naming network segments that have commonly lagged behind from a technological perspective. Yet because so much attention has been put on improving the technologies in these specific areas, others have become neglected. What many will soon discover is that the less reliable and more problematic parts of their network have shifted toward areas that were previously "rock-solid." Let's look at why this shift has happened, where it’s likely to form, and what can be done to avoid it.

    Where businesses have been focusing time and money improving their network

    Enterprise-grade network technologies and services have come a long way in the past decade. Network services that were previously considered "best effort" -- such as Wi-Fi -- are now considered as reliable as wired counterparts. This is due to improvements in wireless protocol standards, antenna improvements, and better wireless deployments using predictive propagation and site survey tools. Two other parts of the network commonly thought to be weak links are the wide-area network (WAN) and internet edge. Yet, broadband carrier services, including Internet connectivity and private WAN links, have improved dramatically in recent years. Customers that migrated away from legacy T1, T3, and ATM circuit technologies to modern metro Ethernet and MPLS links for data transport not only benefit from performance gains -- they also see far fewer outages. Additionally, SD-WAN technology improvements and price drops now mean that even mid-sized organizations can use these advanced network performance and resiliency technologies with far less complexity and management overhead.

    While strides have clearly been made by putting time, money and focus on upgrading wireless networks, the WAN and Internet edge, it has come at the expense of the campus LAN -- and in some cases -- the data center. It's not uncommon to see businesses that continuously upgrade their WLAN to the latest technologies every two to three years while choosing to stick with the same core, distribution, access, and data center switches in their corporate LAN for a 5, 6, or even 10 years. While this does attest to the impressive reliability and performance that LAN and data center technologies have held over the WLAN and network edge hardware/software, cracks in the LAN are clearly starting to show. Thus, it's important to begin shifting some focus off Wi-Fi, and the edge -- and instead put it back on the campus LAN.

    LAN technologies you don't have, but should

    Technologies like link aggregation have made it relatively easy for network architects to keep up with growing bandwidth demands of end devices and between switch uplinks. But at some point, the time will come where even this is no longer enough. This is especially true when looking at bandwidth-intensive IoT projects that are likely to be coming our way. Thus, the need to migrate toward multi-gigabit copper and fiber technologies will be an absolute must. Despite the fact that moving to 2.5, 5, and 10 Gbps multi-gig twisted pair cabling and 25, 40 and 100 Gbps fiber Ethernet will require major hardware upgrades, these upgrades are long overdue in many cases.

    Looking a bit further down the road, entire LAN switching architectures will need to be revamped in favor of new software-defined and intent-based technologies. No longer will networks be designed and configured to route through decentralized, hop-by-hop routers and switches. Instead, the entire corporate LAN will be centrally managed from a configuration and management/maintenance perspective.

    Lastly, the corporate LAN has also been neglected from a data security perspective. The encryption, access control, and granular visibility that is common in modern WLANs and at the WAN/Internet edge are often surprisingly missing on the LAN. Bad actors are quickly discovering that the LAN is now the weak point and often only must find a way to plug in to gain access to sensitive business information.

    Where will your focus be in 2020?

    If you’ve been spending time and money bolstering wireless and remote site/internet connectivity from a reliability and security standpoint over the past few years, it may be time to shift that focus back on the campus LAN. New advancements in switching hardware, software, and security have progressed to the point where upgrades will be very noticeable from both an end-user and management perspective. Thus, changes to the corporate LAN and data center will not only refresh a much-neglected part of your network – it will also set the stage toward full, end-to-end management and visibility. Not only the campus local area network but also the WAN, WLAN, and Internet edge as well.

    FSF Blogs: Ethical Tech Giving Guide: Freedom is the gift that keeps on giving

     Cache   

    For many of us, the holiday season is about bringing our loved ones together to celebrate. Most of the time, this includes giving them a neatly wrapped present or two. We go through the buying process carefully, using a friend or family member's likes and dislikes to sift through the Web and find the right item. But when choosing a tech gift, we need to be careful to give them something that doesn't harm them instead.

    This is why we at the Free Software Foundation (FSF) publish our Ethical Tech Giving Guide each year, as a way to help free software supporters choose gifts that won't burden the people they care about with proprietary software or venomous Digital Restrictions Management (DRM). Devices may come and go, but introducing another person to software freedom is the start of a lifelong journey.

    We create resources like the Ethical Tech Giving Guide to let others know that true freedom is dependent on software freedom. Our annual fundraiser is happening right now, and we're looking to bring 600 new associate members into the fold before December 31st. Our membership program is the heart of our work here at the FSF, and we couldn't do it without community support. If you're not already one of our valued members, will you take the next step in your commitment to software freedom and become an associate member today? Beginning at the $120 level of contribution, new and renewing members can choose from a great array of fundraiser premiums, including FSF and GNU patches, an FSF-emblazoned thermos, an FSF backpack, or all at once! We also encourage you to share this Guide, and our message, with friends.

    The Giving Guide is a tool that will help you avoid the temptation to get your loved ones the latest offerings from companies like Apple or Amazon, whose business model revolves around subjecting people to proprietary malware and surveillance. Digital personal assistants and other devices running proprietary software did not become the norm overnight. Rather, they achieved their popularity through convincing one person at a time that they were useful. Tech corporations have billions of marketing dollars to convince people to use their products -- but our movement has more and more people every day, who can make daily choices to refuse them, and deprive them of power.

    Computing in the free world received a major gift of its own this year with our Respects Your Freedom (RYF) certification of the Talos II and Talos II Lite, mainboards that are based on the promising POWER9 CPU architecture. The Talos mainboards and the POWER9 architecture are off to a great start where user freedoms are concerned, and may in time replace the more restrictive X86 motherboards that are popular today. It's a great start for the next phase of the RYF program, something we've taken into consideration when making major improvements to its Web site.

    The Purism Librem 5 cell phone is another exciting addition to the Giving Guide this year: we're giving it a tentative recommendation because the company has publicly committed to doing the right things for prioritizing user freedom and privacy. We also have evaluated and endorsed the operating system that the Librem 5 will run, the fully free PureOS, and the phone is designed for maximum privacy, security, and user freedom.

    We are still strong in our resistance, and Apple, Microsoft, Netflix, and company still haven't won the fight despite their efforts. The free software movement continues on, and the FSF is still here to fight for the freedom of computer users around the globe.

    Share the Guide with your friends and family, and use it to give a few gifts yourself! Just like the free software movement, the FSF community is spread around the globe. Earlier this month we sent over 12,000 letters to supporters far and wide, and take our own holiday joy in seeing how far the fight for a free society has come since its humble beginnings. Although it's winter here in Boston, your sustained support, feedback, and positivity helps us keep the free software fires burning.

    Mark Wielaard: A public discussion about GNU

     Cache   

    New GNU Governance

    There is now a public discussion about GNU governance issues as described in this LWN article: Rethinking the governance of the GNU Project. We have had private discussion about GNU governance issues for the last couple of decades between GNU maintainers, but that never resulted in actual change. And recent events made things a bit more urgent. Since the Chief GNUisance is no longer the president of the FSF. The FSF is now asking for feedback on how their relationship with the GNU project should go forward with respect to fiscal sponsorship, technical infrastructure, promotion, copyright assignment, and volunteer management. So we need to answer a lot of questions.

    Mentoring and apprenticeship

    We started with a description of how various GNU projects handle mentoring and apprenticeship. Once a GNU maintainer is assigned as the FSF steward of a project/package there are lots of documents on coding standards and what it means for a project to be GNU and Free Software. But there is no core guideline and a GNU maintainer has almost complete freedom interpreting whether any guidelines are or aren’t applicable to their project. This results in GNU maintainers reinventing a lot of project maintenance, governance and delegation of tasks. It would be good to document the various (consensus based) development models that are the result.

    GNU membership

    The mentoring and apprenticeship discussion focused on the GNU maintainers as being the core of the GNU project. But as was pointed out there are also webmasters, translators, infrastructure maintainers (partially paid FSF staff and volunteers), education and conference organizers, etc. All these people are GNU stakeholders. And how we organize governance of the GNU project should also involve them. There are also already some committees to evaluate new GNU packages and give feedback on the GNU coding standards. But given these committees are advisory only and are sometimes ignored or overruled people have been demotivated to join them or don’t see them as legitimate. It isn’t clear who is actually a GNU member, or whether the FSF recognizes just the GNU maintainers or also other GNU volunteers as stakeholders.

    FSF Philosophy or GNU Policy

    Both the GNU membership and the new GNU governance discussions try to answer the question “What is GNU?“. The easy answer is “GNU is an operating system that is free software, put together by people working together for the freedom of all software users to control their computing“. That still leaves a lot to define. What is in an Operating System, who are these people that do all this work and how do we coordinate all that work?

    But looking at gnu.org it is much more complex than that. As you expect there is a people section and a software section. But then there is a lot of sections that blur the lines between the FSF and GNU. Most of that is simply historical. GNU used to be the only program the FSF ran. And some of these pages now have their own on fsf.org. The FSF now has a long list of programs besides GNU it runs. But things like the Free Software License List, Free Software Definition and Free System Distribution Guidelines are still maintained on gnu.org. It would be good to agree on who defines what.

    And looking at the Philosophy of the GNU project page one could ask whether GNU is fundamentally about producing coherent, empowering free software systems, or whether it is fundamentally about developing and propagating an inspiring, liberatory philosophy? Or maybe it is both? And which Philosophy articles actually define Policy for the project and which are just personal opinions or preferences of the authors? How we are going to maintain these pages in the future (or maybe we are just going to mark them as historic?) depends on answers to these questions.

    Resources

    The FSF manages a lot of resources for the GNU project. It holds the trademark, it is entrusted with some of the copyrights, does fundraising and uses the money for technical infrastructure that GNU volunteers can use. Crucially it maintains the infrastructure for www.gnu.org, lists.gnu.org, ftp.gnu.org, savannah.gnu.org and fencepost.gnu.org for GNU projects to publish their work and coordinate development. But this infrastructure doesn’t currently scale and several GNU projects have to maintain their own infrastructure. Some projects have their own (earmarked) funds through the FSF Working Together for Free Software program (or sometimes through other foundations like Software in the Public Interest). It would be nice if the FSF could provide a place to have a discussion about the use of FSF resources by all the GNU volunteers (meta.gnu.org maybe) to help with these discussions and to make it more clear who can speak for GNU and which volunteers can use which mailinglists for what purposes.

    GNU Social Contract

    All the above discussions will be easier if we could agree on some guidelines that everybody would follow when acting on behave of GNU. A mission statement about what it means to be GNU and what the values are that the GNU community respects when working together. Condensed to something that is easy to comprehend and follow by anybody who wishes to associate with GNU. Ludo posted a first (annotated) draft based on the idea of the Debian Social Contract. And after some discussion, Andreas posted a preliminary version of the GNU Social Contract based on four core principles:

    • The GNU Project respects users’ freedoms
    • The GNU Project provides a consistent system
    • The GNU Project collaborates with the broader free software community
    • The GNU Project welcomes contributions from all and everyone

    If you are working on and/or participation in a GNU project we would love to hear your feedback on the proposed GNU Social Contract, the relation of the GNU project and the FSF, governance, membership and any of the other topics that we have been discussing. Together we can make sure that the GNU project will keep empowering all computer users to control their computing.

    The Wi-Fi 6 Syllabus: 3 Core Concepts for Campus Use Cases

     Cache   
    The Wi-Fi 6 Syllabus: 3 Core Concepts for Campus Use Cases shailaja.neela… Tue, 11/26/2019 - 12:22

    Wi-Fi 6 is gaining digital ground. In September, this sixth-generation wireless standard was certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance. Also known as High Efficiency Wireless (HEW) or 802.11ax, the next iteration of Wi-Fi promises faster speeds, simultaneous connections and reduced device battery usage.

    With 77 percent of postsecondary campuses now adopting Internet of Things technologies to improve access and enhance student engagement, smart campus Wi-Fi solutions are critical to deliver on performance promises and meet evolving expectations.

    But simply ripping and replacing current network devices with Wi-Fi 6 solutions won’t earn top marks for ROI. As noted by CBR Online, while 85 percent of organizations already use IoT solutions and are looking to implement wireless tech trends, they often struggle to connect IT rollouts with measurable returns.

    The answer? To effectively leverage the future of wireless technology, start with a Wi-Fi 6 syllabus that covers three key concepts for campus use cases: design, infrastructure and implementation.

    MORE FROM EDTECH: 5G and Wi-Fi 6: What’s the difference, and where do they belong on campus?

    Apply Design Thinking to Wi-Fi 6 High-Capacity Access Points

    As noted by Cisco Distinguished Systems Engineer Rob Barton, Wi-Fi 6 uses “fundamentally the same mechanism” as previous generations (802.11a, b, g and ac), making it backward-compatible and interchangeable with existing technology. 

    What sets Wi-Fi 6 apart is a shift away from competition-based algorithms that permit only serial connections — 802.11ax solves the problem “by letting multiple users transmit at the same time on different resource units.” This allows up to 4,000 simultaneous client connections, reducing the strain on networks now tasked with handling 60,000 to 70,000 devices, on average.

    Here, design thinking is critical to maximize campus impact. While it’s possible to simply duplicate existing Wi-Fi networks using sixth-generation infrastructure, this ignores the ability of 802.11ax to increase total device volume. By deploying next-generation access points at scale, campus IT teams can both improve connection stability for IoT devices and diversify the type of devices present. 

    Using what’s known as targeted wake time (TWT), even battery-powered devices such as parking lot sensors or wireless security cameras can be connected to new Wi-Fi 6 networks and powered on only at specific intervals to deliver key data — then returned to dormancy until their next scheduled wake.

    Account for Infrastructure Needs in Wi-Fi 6 Deployments

    Barton puts it simply: When it comes to bandwidth on campuses, there’s never enough. 

    This will be even more critical as the number of connected devices continues to rise. While campuses such as Seneca College have already started their Wi-Fi 6 transition — just months after the new standard’s certification — connecting modernized admin buildings, residence halls and advanced research facilities means accounting for the sheer number of mobile devices, already-placed sensors and cloud-connected technologies populating new Wi-Fi networks.

    As a result, colleges need a twofold approach to infrastructure assessment:

    • Find the right fit: As Network Computing points out, with Wi-Fi 6 still in the early adopter stage, not all APs and routers are created equal. IT staff will be well served by evaluating industry leaders to find the best-fit backbone for new Wi-Fi and IoT deployments.
    • Build out bandwidth: Last-mile connections are always the weakest link in network infrastructure. If current ISP bandwidth can’t meet increased throughput demand from always-connected IoT devices, new Wi-Fi 6 solutions won’t deliver on their potential. Before large-scale adoption starts, make sure campus connections are up to the challenge.

    MORE FROM EDTECH: Keep Wi-Fi 6 in mind when planning network upgrades

    Assess Implementation Strategies for Wi-Fi 6 Networks

    Wi-Fi 6 implementation doesn’t happen in isolation. According to PC Magazine, while new Wi-Fi standards will transform current wireless networks, the cellular equivalent (5G) also plays a critical role in deploying IoT at scale. 

    Consider security: While Barton notes that WPA3 protection offered by Wi-Fi 6 networks outpaces that of 5G for identity and access management, campuses need comprehensive solutions that permit seamless connection transfer between Wi-Fi and cellular networks as students move on and off campus but require the same level of secure access. Here, both dedicated identity access management tools and basic protections, such as two-factor authentication, can help bridge the security gap.

    Barton also points to an increasing mismatch across data volumes and processing potential. With smart devices generating more data, more quickly, as campuses ramp up the number of simultaneous connections, distance from application to information becomes a critical concern. 

    Cloud architects will play a critical role in effective implementation as more campuses adopt cloud technologies and edge computing becomes the de facto standard, says Barton. In this environment, widely distributed Wi-Fi 6 APs will reduce the time required for apps to communicate with cloud resources and return critical results.

    Wi-Fi 6’s newly minted official status means there’s no need to rush campus deployment, especially if IT teams lack strong links between next-generation networking standards and measurable smart device ROI. The best bet is to follow the syllabus. Start with design thinking: How do Wi-Fi 6 advantages align with current and future campus objectives? Next, shore up infrastructure to meet new AP bandwidth demands. 

    Finally, consider the implementation overlap between 5G, IoT and Wi-Fi 6 solutions.

    Comment on The Fundamental Problem in Python 3 by Paul Boddie

     Cache   
    "So yeah, it probably would have been better to have a “filename” type in Python that would be able to enforce the local rules, and allow essentially broken filesystems not to break Python programs." So yeah, it probably would have been better if the core developers had listened to people telling them that various abstractions and the standard library needed improving, instead of them getting lots of ambitious ideas about tweaking the language, with various fundamental CPython runtime deficiencies remaining unaddressed over a decade later, and Python generally having missed the boat completely in whole realms of modern computing. (And for the Debian angle, given that I read these articles - not rants, by the way - via Planet Debian, I see that PyPy is in danger of being kicked out of Debian due to the paper-shuffling exercise that is the Python 2 removal "transition". It must be very fulfilling to dedicate so much time to improving the Python ecosystem and to develop a modern runtime for Python only to be berated for "not keeping up", or whatever the armchair commentators tend to say, and seeing your contribution towards a better language ecosystem withheld from the people who might benefit from it.) For what it is worth, systems like Plan 9 - the effective origin of UTF-8 encoding - showed the way for POSIX, but obviously those responsible for the systems we use tend to cherry-pick the ideas they like from such systems while badmouthing their originators.

    Forging next steps for IPPC ePhyto: Meeting at the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service

     Cache   
    **12 November 2019, Maryland, USA** – The IPPC ePhyto Steering Group (ESG) and the Project Technical Committee (PTC) met at the offices of the United States Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) from 12 to 15 November 2019 in Maryland, USA. Mr Christian Dellis was elected as the new ESG chair for 3 years – replacing the outgoing chair Mr Peter Neimanis. During Mr. Neimanis’s time as chair, IPPC ePhyto moved from being a project to a full-time operational component of the IPPC Secretariat. His efforts to make this happen were greatly appreciated and have helped shape the future of electronic phytosanitary certification around the word. A representative from the United Nations International Computing Centre (UNICC) gave updates on the IPPC ePhyto Hub and the IPPC Generic ePhyto National System (GeNS). The IPPC ePhyto Hub is a centralized system that facilitates the exchange of ePhytos among national plant protection organizations (NPPOs). The GeNS is a centralized web-based system that allows countries without their own system to produce, send and receive ePhytos. The ESG outlined clear goals and priorities for the next phase of the ePhyto Solution in line with the [5-year strategic plan][1] endorsed by the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM-14) in 2019. Among the top priorities was testing the channel feature that recently established a connection to the European Unions’ Trade Control and Expert System (EU-TRACES). This feature may make it possible to connect to a single window or industry system in the future, something that IPPC Contracting Parties have been requesting in order to streamline their trade processes. Mr Harm Jan van Burg from the United Nations Centre for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business (UN CEFACT), Mr Erik Bosker representing the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and Codex Alimentarius, and Mr Simon Padilla from the Standards and Trade Development Facility (STDF) discussed future collaboration with IPPC ePhyto. Indeed, the STDF has just established a new committee, modeled on the ePhyto Project Advisory Committee (PAC), with representatives from the IPPC Secretariat, OIE, Codex, FAO, UNICC and UNCEFACT among others. It was agreed that this committee will help harmonise the work on electronic certification. As this was officially the last meeting of the Project Technical Committee (PTC), the ESG’s Terms of reference will be updated to include members from UNICC which has played a key role in developing the IPPC ePhyto Solution.

    AHA

     Cache   

    Mike Dewey is Director of Campus Services in the Office of Information Technology at Rice University.  He leads groups that provide desktop computing support and help desk services.  He is also interim director of the Teaching, Learning, and Scholarly Technologies group.

    To be honest, I did not know what to expect when my CIO asked me if I would like to attend the MOR Advanced Leader’s Program.  When she described it to me, it sounded like a great program.  However, I had attended other management training programs and was usually disappointed in what I got out of them.  What I didn’t realize was this was not a management training program; it was a LEADERSHIP program and the first session alone resulted in many AHA moments and learning experiences. 

    The first AHA was probably the most uncomfortable but rewarding exercise… that of relationship building and the 4 I’s.  Being an introvert (which is NOT one of the 4 I’s) and someone who was not very good at extended conversations made for a bad combination in relationship building.  It generally took me twice as long as others establishing relationships in the workplace because the time it took me to get comfortable to initiate a conversation.  The exercise of standing out in the courtyard at Wash U and striking a conversation with someone I really didn’t know and maintaining that conversation for more than a few minutes was a major victory for me.  It is amazing that those four simple words… Initiate, Inquire, Invest and Influence had such a profound impact on my ability to strike up a meaningful conversation with someone I didn’t know. 

    My next AHA probably could be more accurately be described as an epiphany since I came to the realization that I had been doing the wrong job for the last two years… I was more a “super” manager than a director.  I was doing a lot of managing and doing, but undertaking very little leading.  This took me on a mission to spend more time leading and in order to do so, I had to do much more delegating.  It was hard at first trying to calibrate what I should and shouldn’t be delegating but it is progressively getting easier for me and my staff.  Now that I had a “little” more time on my hands, I spent more time with my staff looking to the future and planning more.  I set aside an hour of weekly (short-term) planning on Mondays and an hour on Friday’s for longer-term planning.  As a result, I am getting better at planning and establishing a vision for my group but just as important, I think I am doing a better job at developing my staff to lead and take on more responsibility.

    There are many more AHAs that I could mention but I want to finish on the relationships I have established during this training and how they have helped me develop just by interacting with member of my cohort.  I like to borrow good leadership traits from all that I meet and I can say that, to a person, I have pulled away tools and behaviors from each of you (instructors and classmates alike) that I have incorporated subtly in my leadership style.  I also believe the interaction with my Rice cohort during this training has improved our relationships and given me a better insight as to how each of them think as leaders and how to be a better teammate for them.

    Education Landscape from Brick & Mortar to Click & Mortar

     Cache   
    Aindril-De

    The education landscape of today and the future is “click and mortar”. It not only appeals to those born in the new millennium or Generation Z as they are fondly referred to, but it also focuses on acquiring skill sets through a virtual medium. The new generation expects educational institutions to provide knowledge through mobile digital devices, platforms and other similar channels. As technology has made it possible for educators to reach a broader spectrum of students, it can safely be predicted that the strongest educational institutions will be the ones whose brand is founded on the “brick and mortar” model with the adoption of virtual education, making them a “click and mortar” as well.

    The advent of the “click and mortar” education system has brought several changes with it. These changes, which Elearning has initiated, have sparked a revolution in the way education is imparted and received. The query that comes to mind here is, “What exactly are these changes?”

    Elearning has and continues to influence education in three important arenas. First, by easing access to education, Elearning gives students the luxury of learning from within the comfort of their homes by using internet-connected devices like tablets, computers, and smartphones. It is essentially self-paced.

    Second, eLearning provides quality education to students. This student- centric mode of learning assures learners of updated knowledge. Online guided discussions with professors and lecturers are a hallmark of eLearning, which allows sharing of expertise where both, the teacher and the student gain simultaneously.

    Thirdly, eLearning gives students access to specialized courses that may not be available locally. It enables access to education that is not readily available in certain geographic locations.

    It is a fact that the brick and mortar framework is still the mainstay of our education system as there are undeniable advantages to learning in a shared physical space. However, online education is progressively gaining popularity. The autonomy and flexibility that these courses offer make them extremely popular with working professionals and students. The entire eLearning industry landscape is changing rapidly. It is characterized by emerging trends which will be more evident in the future.

    Artificial intelligence is emerging as an integral part of the eLearning ecosystem. We see several AI educational solutions coming to the fore. It is predicted that AI can fill the need-gaps in learning and teaching. It is expected to broaden the purview of schools and teachers. For example, Machine Learning, which is a subsection of AI, helps in assessing the ability of the student to answer questions correctly or a student’s performance on a related topic and more.

    Microlearning is another trend that is catching up quickly. It is also referred to as bite-sized learning and includes short learning nuggets of 3 to 5 minute duration, designed to meet a specific learning outcome. The accessibility of microlearning on multiple devices like smartphones, desktops, tablets, and laptops combined with their brevity makes them extremely popular in the education system.

    The importance of personalized education is slowly sinking in. Personalized attention to each student becomes possible with Elearning. It offers the freedom of customizing the lesson according to the needs of the student. The learners of today want a learning experience that fits their learning speed, personal needs, preferred learning style, and their learning pathway.

    With the increasing adoption of edtech in educational institutions and an influx of educational technologies, it is very likely that the future years will see further integration of technologies like Blockchain, Cloud computing, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, ICT (Integrated Co-Teaching) classrooms and Edge Computing in the field of education.

    In the age bracket of 5-24 years, India has the world’s largest population of about 500 million. With the paid online subscribers in the edtech sector witnessing a massive surge from 1.6 million in 2016, to almost 6 times more in the current year, the country is set to become the second-largest market for eLearning after the US.

    “Click and mortar” education has triggered the concept of blended education where students can enjoy a combination of the traditional “brick and mortar” learning with the benefits of eLearning. This is in fact a boon to the education industry with both students and teachers reaping the best of both worlds.

    Review: How NeuVector protects containers throughout their lifecycle

     Cache   

    Businesses and organizations of all sizes are finally embracing cloud computing. Even holdout organizations like some large government agencies are starting to deploy private clouds, or hybrids that contain some mix of private and public cloud infrastructure. The benefits of cloud computing are numerous and well-known at this point. They include near infinite expandability, having an external provider worry about maintaining the base infrastructure, and the ability to spin up new servers or services in just a few seconds.

    But the most advanced enterprises are taking cloud computing a step further, into the realm of containerization. The concept of containers is a pretty brilliant one because it provides all the benefits of cloud computing, like infinite expandability, but also provides individual control over each container, which is essentially a fully-operational and independent virtual machine.

    CIC a unicorn in its own right after wooing £1bn investment to Cambridge

     Cache   

    Funding powerhouse Cambridge Innovation Capital has now attracted £1 billion of investment into Cambridge companies and managing partner Andrew Williamson has hired more Silicon Valley talent to ensure the technology cluster maintains its upward trajectory on the global stage.

    The £1bn funding landmark has come within the last five years of CIC’s six-year existence but Williamson tells Business Weekly that Cambridge can leverage even more international capital as it builds on AI, deep learning, life science and therapeutic market leads.

    CIC’s leading position as a gateway to accessing world-leading innovation was underlined by its performance in the six months to the end of September.

    CIC has simultaneously unveiled Vin Lingathoti, a 10-year Valley veteran in the deep technology sector, as a partner to focus on enterprise software. Williamson himself spent 20 years in the US technology heartland while investment director Michael Anstey excelled at The Boston Consulting Group’s office in Toronto and has advised multinational healthcare businesses across North America, Europe, India, and Japan.

    Williamson said the team was wired to help steer a new wave of growth for the Cambridge technology sector. He said: “The high quality of opportunities afforded to CIC as a result of our preferential access to IP from the University of Cambridge and our superior network through the Cambridge ecosystem ensures we are the gateway for accessing world-leading innovation.”

    In the six months under review, CIC invested £22.8 million into three new and 11 existing portfolio companies; Riverlane, Sense Biodetection and PredictImmune joined CIC’s portfolio.

    CMR Surgical closed a £195m Series C to commercialise its next-generation surgical robotic system, clinching unicorn status at the same time.

    Gyroscope Therapeutics raised £50.4m of Series B funding round including from CIC and lead investor Syncona for the development of gene therapies and surgical delivery systems for retinal diseases.

    Cytora closed a £25m Series B financing round to develop its artificial intelligence-powered insurance technology platform and PROWLER.io raised $24m to support product expansion and growth in artificial intelligence decision-making. CIC also figured in prominent deals for Storm Therapeutics, Audio Analytic and Bicycle Therapeutics.

    Investing from its £275 million first fund, CIC has injected capital into 29 companies to date. Williamson stressed that international big hitters had invested alongside CIC to accumulate the landmark total. 

    Thrilled with what he called a show of confidence in Cambridge, Williamson said the local deep technology market was set for further unprecedented growth because the cluster was so uniquely endowed with IP-rich, transformative businesses.


    Cambridge Innovation Capital managing partner, Andrew Williamson

    In an exclusive interview with Business Weekly, Williamson said Cambridge gloried in companies creating differentiated technologies. These were prolific, thanks in no small measure to Cambridge University and its exponential success in nurturing and spinning out transformational life science and hi-tech companies.

    CIC’s close relationship with the university and follow-up companies is evidenced by the fact that 18 of the 29 businesses in whom it has invested to date are Cambridge University spin-outs.

    What is less well known is that the astute and highly forensic CIC team has seen around  1500 investment opportunities to date and engaged closely with around 1000 of those without committing investment. So the portfolio businesses are in an elite minority. The common denominator is that besides having great technology they also have the capability to scale rapidly on a global basis, says Williamson.

    This Solomon-esque insight makes CIC more than just another investor and more like an anchor institution within the burgeoning cluster.

    Williamson told me: “Not every investment opportunity converts immediately; sometimes we bide our time and look at investments over a number of years: 97 per cent of companies we see we don’t invest in but by engaging with them closely we are able to suggest how they can get themselves investment ready. 

    “So in addition to capital, we invest a lot of time building relationships. And the model works: The quality and number of high-potential companies is growing year by year. We have acknowledged the reality that some companies may be exceptionally IP rich but take a little bit longer to develop than ventures based on more traditional business models.”

    This is where CIC’s globally experienced team comes in once more. 

    Williamson says: “CIC has a lot of PhDS on its teams with deep tech backgrounds. Every business we invest in is a global business and a significant amount of capital we have invested has been globally secured, so we are seen as a safe pair of hands by investing entrepreneurs and funds across the planet.

    “A lot of promising deep tech businesses are too small to build into $1bn businesses as things stand which is why it is vital to incorporate a US, Asian and European growth strategy.

    “While all our portfolio businesses tend to have started in Cambridge and developed disruptive Science & Technology within the cluster, many have opened up markets on the West Coast of the US or in Asia, for example. 

    “We see some ventures that are fantastic in terms of their own specific propositions but because of their business model they remain too small currently to build into a global business. For example, we don’t get involved in consumer related brands - it is just not our model. We and our co-investors require that businesses we back have the ability to scale as rapidly as possible.”

    Williamson makes the point that the quality of talent emanating from Cambridge University – principally the calibre of its engineers – is second to none on the worldwide stage.


    CMR Surgical CEO Martin Frost with the company’s surgical robotic system –Versius®

    And the best of our companies – such as CMR Surgical and PROWLER.io – have learned how to attract and retain top global talent by offering stimulating work environments and employment packages that encourage good people to stay and grow with the business.

    Williamson says: “In the US engineers can move to new roles almost on an annual basis depending on the packages on offer. In Cambridge, engineers are attracted by the quality of the work, they can become shareholders – personally and professionally they are in a very good place here and they tend to stay loyal to a progressive, switched on employer.

    “Swim.ai - which started with commercial operations in San Jose – came to Cambridge because of access to the high quality engineering talent and brainpower available through the university. Their model is sustainable: Swim.ai is already hiring big and filling all their slots. 

    “Hiring top talent to sustain scalability on an international basis is clearly a challenge for the cream of our technology companies locally but businesses like PROWLER.io, CMR Surgical and Swim.ai provide highly productive workplaces, challenging working environments and great incentives to be part of a business that can transform technology sectors globally.

    “The ability of our top life science and technology companies to grow sustainably and consistently recruit top people is possibly the greatest cultural change in the Cambridge science & technology environment in the last 20 years.”

    Similarly, while many tech entrepreneurs and investors continue to look to Silicon Valley as an exemplar, Cambridge is no longer a generation behind in terms of maturation compared to the West Coast ecosystem. 

    “Our own ecosystem now compares favourably,” says Williamson. He praised the energy and growing global influence of Cambridge Enterprise, the university’s commercialisation arm, and the prodigious input of financial and business building expertise from Cambridge Angels.


    Vin Lingathoti, partner, Cambridge Innovation Capital

    New executive recruit Vin Lingathoti is a software engineer by training and has held roles across multiple functions including engineering, product management, corporate strategy, private equity and corporate development. 

    Most recently he was regional head of Venture Investments and Acquisitions at Cisco Europe, where he led multiple direct and fund-of-fund investments and played a vital role in helping Cisco’s executive leadership team develop its European investment strategy.

    He says: “The Cambridge cluster has many similarities to Silicon Valley. The University of Cambridge produces some of the best engineering talent in the world, on a par with Stanford and MIT. 

    “It has one of the most active angel and seed investor communities in the UK and is home to prominent deep tech companies such as PROWLER.io and Riverlane. Many of the global software giants such as Microsoft and Amazon have opened R & D centres in Cambridge in pursuit of hard-to-acquire engineering talent.

    “CIC is uniquely positioned to leverage this Cambridge advantage. We have a close relationship with the University of Cambridge and deep connections to the local startup community. 

    “We have an exceptional team of investment professionals with deep domain expertise and global perspective. All of us have lived in multiple countries and held roles in large corporates and startups and understand the challenges faced by early-stage founders. We take a collaborative approach in helping founders navigate through their journey of building world-class companies.”

    Stars in the CIC firmament

    Riverlane
    Riverlane, where CIC led the £3.3m seed round in which Cambridge Enterprise also participated, is a quantum computing software developer transforming the discovery of new materials and drugs. 

    Riverlane’s software leverages the capabilities of quantum computers, which operate using the principles of quantum mechanics.

    PredictImmune  
    PredictImmune, in which CIC participated in a £10m Series B round alongside Cambridge Enterprise and other new and existing investors, is developing pioneering prognostic tools for guiding treatment options and improving patient outcomes in immune-mediated diseases. The Series B round cements PredictImmune’s strong financial position, enabling it to build on the successful launch of its first product, PredictSURE IBD™, with a major focus on continued commercial expansion across Europe, the US and other territories.

    CMR Surgical
    CMR Surgical closed a £195m Series C funding round, Europe’s largest ever private financing round in the medical technology sector, to commercialise its next-generation surgical robotic system, Versius®. 

    CIC was an early investor in CMR Surgical having first backed the company’s Series A round in 2016 and has continued to provide financial support and guidance, enabling the realisation of the potential of the Versius® system. CMR Surgical has launched initially in hospitals India with further expansion across the NHS and elsewhere globally expected in short order.

    Gyroscope Therapeutics
    Gyroscope Therapeutics, in which CIC participated in a £50.4m Series B funding round alongside lead investor Syncona, is developing gene therapies and surgical delivery systems for retinal diseases. With this new round Gyroscope Therapeutics will continue to advance: the clinical development of the company’s investigational gene therapy GT005 for dry age related macular degeneration (dry-AMD), the leading cause of permanent vision impairment for people aged 65 and older.

    Cytora
    Cytora closed a £25m Series B financing round to continue developing its artificial intelligence-powered insurance technology platform that enables insurers to underwrite more accurately, reduce frictional costs and achieve profitable growth. 

    Cytora’s underwriting platform applies Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing techniques to public and proprietary data sets, including property construction features, company financials and local weather.

    PROWLER.io
    PROWLER.io, where CIC participated in the $24m funding round to support product expansion and growth, continues to define the artificial intelligence decision-making market, developing the world’s first technology that can help businesses and organisations make better decisions in processing dynamic, real-time data in complex and uncertain environments. 

    Storm Therapeutics
    Storm Therapeutics closed a £14m extension to its Series A financing, bringing the total Series A financing to £30m. Storm is a drug discovery company that is tackling disease through modulating RNA modifying enzymes. 

    Audio Analytic
    Audio Analytic, in which CIC participated in a $12m Series B funding round, has has developed cutting-edge AI sound recognition technology which can be embedded into consumer devices to make them more helpful to people, by understanding and reacting to the contextual information provided by sounds. 

    Bicycle Therapeutics
    CIC also participated in Bicycle Therapeutics’ Nasdaq IPO to progress the company’s lead candidate, BT1718, through the clinic and continue to advance its preclinical programmes, including toxin drug conjugates and immune modulators to treat cancer and other debilitating diseases.

    Planet Enaya.

    The Great Hall.

     

    Colonel Toaku stood in the middle of the Great Hall, the seat of power in Enaya. This was where representatives from across the world came together to make decisions that would affect millions of people. There were barely a handful of senators present.

    Most of them had evacuated the planet when the Seneca warship arrived, along with most of the public who could afford to. Seneca had demanded the General Assembly gather to be judged, and they ran.

    The exodus had been swift and chaotic. Whatever it was the Corps wanted, it was clear they planned on taking it by force and leaving no survivors. It was their way. And Ramon Ollo wasn’t here to stop them.

    Toaku was aware of the irony. The one man he had worked his whole life to remove from a position of power was the only man who could have saved them from the onslaught that the Corps threatened.

    Of course, Ramon Ollo had given up that power long ago. Supposedly. He had founded the General Assembly, even gone as far as building and donating the magnificent hall Toaku was standing in.

    But what Ramon Ollo gave, he could also take away. Every building, every system, every network, had been constructed by the Ollo family. And anyone who knew the kind of man Ramon Ollo was, knew that his creations did not walk free from their master. If he chose to reclaim his position as ruler of this world, no one could stop him. Not the Corps, not the Central Authority, and certainly not the General Assembly.

    “As acting-Chair, I call this emergency meeting to order,” said Senator M’Ow, first of the Lusans, a small family from the southern hemisphere. He was a short, rotund man who had been on the other side of the world when the Seneca warship arrived. He had probably thought he had time to gather some of his more valuable possessions before abandoning Enaya to its fate, but the warship had departed as mysteriously as it had arrived, its apparent destruction a glitch of some kind.

    “I ask to be recognised by the interim Assembly,” said Toaku.

    “You are so recognised,” said M’Ow. He seemed very pleased with himself, suddenly a man of power, at least until the other rats returned with their excuses and false claims of wanting to serve the people of Enaya. The people they had left to perish. “Can you confirm the emergency is over, Colonel?”

    Pleased to be in power, but nervous about having to prove himself worthy. Another fair-weather leader. How long would it be before Enaya was free of these petty families looking to benefit themselves at the cost of others?

    “No, Senator, I can not confirm that,” said Toaku.

    M’Ow looked surprised and worried, as did the enclave of opportunists gathered around him. “But I was told the Seneca warship had departed.”

    “It has, for now. But we do not know the reason for their sudden appearance, other than that it involved the Ollo residence. The same residence where twelve of your fellow Senators were sent as a delegation, and were brutally murdered. Until we know more, I am implementing emergency provisions under the seventh amendment of the Prime Constitution. Until the full General Assembly can convene, I will be taking control of the Senate.”

    “W-what? Why? What do you mean? Ah, ah, now hold on,” M’Ow was flustered and stammered his way to his feet. “This, this is unconstitutional. There is no clear and present danger, is there? No. I’m the Chair of the, I mean, the acting-Chair of the Assembly. I will…”

    He stopped when he saw the security personnel closing in on him from left and right.

    “What, what is this? I demand an explanation.”

    “This is for your own safety,” said Toaku. “With so many Senators off-world, and the recent deaths, we need to ensure your continued well-being. You will be escorted to a safe location and guarded by our best people. You have nothing to fear while you are under the protection of the Judicature.”

    The nine Senators were gently corralled out of the Great Hall, protesting and complaining, but otherwise compliant. They were used to being told what to do, and like all of the old families, their breeding showed.

    Toaku looked around the vast, empty chamber. Seat of power. The thought was risible. He had a small amount of time to correct several generations-worth of mistakes and abuse. But first, he would deal with the Ollo family and its agents. Perhaps he wouldn’t have dared if Ramon Ollo was still here, but he wasn’t.

    SCCV Tenderness.

     

    General Devora Sway was not in a good mood. Her crew were well aware of it and stepped softly around the bridge of the Seneca Corps Command Vessel Tenderness. None of them had ever seen her this angry.

    “General, High Command are waiting,” said Captain Jupila, Sway’s adjutant.

    “Tell them to wait.”

    Jupila hesitated, wanting to speak but not knowing what to say.

    “What is it, Captain?”

    “Nothing, General.”

    “Speak freely. You’ve been with me long enough to know I value your input, Jupila.”

    “It’s just… High Command is getting anxious. They’ve received your report but they have questions. Should I tell them you’re… what should I tell them?”

    “Tell them I’m thinking. This is a very sensitive situation. Someone other than Ramon Ollo has seen the blueprints. We could trust Ramon to keep his word, he was never one to share anything with anyone, but now that these wild-cards have been introduced, we can expect the information to leak out. It’s inevitable.”

    “With the fleet on its—”

    “They’re too far away and we have no idea what these people have planned. Waiting is not an option. And we’ve already seen how quick they are to respond to threats. If we fail to eliminate them in one blow… I daren’t consider the possible consequences. We must find a way to capture them and seal them off before they can transmit the information.”

    “Perhaps we could send in a covert team,” suggested Jupila.

    “Yes, I’m leaning that way, but these people are an unknown quantity. They have the boy with them. He knows our methods, thanks to his damn mother. She is a great woman, but she is blind when it comes to her son, and her husband.”

    “If we act against her child,” said Jupila, “we must also expect her to retaliate at some point.”

    “Exactly. Too many fronts, not enough intel. All these blasted spy satellites and this happens in the one place where we’ve always been kept in the dark. It seems an unlikely coincidence.”

    “There is something… Two ex-Corps soldiers were here recently.”

    “What do exiles have to do with anything?” said the general in a dismissive manner. Women who left the Corps were rarely more than well rid of.

    “They were commissioned to bring in a bounty, which they failed.”

    “Failed?” Sway was surprised. Washed out or not, the Corps still had standards.

    “They then escorted two men to the White Palace. The two somewhat match the description of the men with Figaro Ollo. The report isn’t consistent and the sources aren’t verified yet—”

    Sway sat up in her chair, eyes gleaming. “These exiles, where are they now?”

    “I took the liberty of calling them in for questioning. They hadn’t gone far. One of the local moons. They should be arriving within a few minutes.”

    “Good, good. Well done, Captain.”

    “Thank you, General.”

    “Let’s see what these two can tell us. And put the assassination unit on standby. We’ll need to take these boys out in any case.”

    “Approaching Enayan space.”

    “Good,” said Chukka. “How many company ships?”

    “None, Major.”

    “None? Are you sure?” She had expected there to be several competitors she would have to deal with. She had put out a very public bounty on the Nirvana — something she wasn’t happy about, but there had been no other choice — and reports had indicated several parties had responded.

    “Yes, Major. There are also reports that the SCCV Tenderness came through and triggered a clause three event.”

    “Clause three?” Chukka was shocked, although it did explain what happened to the other company ships. She had to take the long way to this location, crossing through privately owned space and maintaining comms-silence, so she wasn’t aware of what had happened. She hadn’t expected the Corps to get involved and vaporise the entire system. That complicated things. “How far along are they?”

    “They’ve gone. I’m not sure what happened. From what we’re picking up, no one is.”

    Here on unrelated business? Whatever their purpose, if they were gone, that was something to be grateful for. It was about time something worked in her favour.

    “And the Central Authority?”

    “Six ships, holding position on the Ruben-Sadar line.”

    “Why?” said Chukka. “What are they doing?”

    “Not sure, Major. I can start collecting information from our franchises in the area. Enaya has very few locations, but we do have some vending machines installed in key sites.”

    “We don’t have time. Have the assault teams meet me in the flight bay. Put them in advanced battlesuits, full loadout, all DLC installed.”

    “Major, the outlay will put us into the red for this mission.”

    “Hang the outlay. We’re going to come out of this showing a profit or die in the attempt. No discounts.”

    “Yes, Major. And the drone complement?”

    “No drones,” snapped Chukka. “No drones of any kind on this mission. Only essential tronics. I’m unlocking the manifest. Manually operated basics. Distribute the melee weapons and EMPs in the cargo hold.”

    “Major, these specs… these are all special commissions. The overheads are going to be huge. Is the payout going to be worth it?”

    “You have no idea, Corporal. This is going to be the largest investment in counter-programming VendX have made in over a century. Trust me, we need to do this unwired and off-grid. Put the fleet in dark formation. Time to make a delivery.”

    How does a guy go from being the engineering director for Amazon Prime to serving as the CEO of a quantum computer company? It’s a classical move for Peter Chapman, the president and CEO of IonQ, which provides the firepower for Microsoft’s recently announced Azure Quantum cloud computing platform. Quantum computing promises to address the same kinds of optimization problems that Chapman had to deal with for Amazon’s next-day deliveries, but on a grand scale. It also doesn’t hurt that Chapman previously worked for futurist Ray Kurzweil, or that he believes quantum computers provide the only path to strong, human-like… Read More
