          Microsoft ขอจดสิทธิบัตรว่าด้วยอุปกรณ์คล้ายแท็บเล็ตที่พับกลางแบ่งครึ่งหน้าจอได้      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

เมื่อต้นเดือนกรกฎาคมที่ผ่านมา Microsoft ได้รับการอนุมัติสิทธิบัตรฉบับหนึ่งเกี่ยวกับอุปกรณ์คล้ายแท็บเล็ตซึ่งมีความพิเศษตรงที่มันสามารถพับกลางแบ่งครึ่งหน้าจอได้ โดยเนื้อหาในสิทธิบัตรเป็นเรื่องการใช้งานอุปกรณ์ดังกล่าวเพื่อการสนทนาผ่านวิดีโอคอลแบบเป็นกลุ่ม

และเมื่อสัปดาห์ก่อนก็มีการเผยแพร่คำขอจดสิทธิบัตรของ Microsoft เจ้าเดิมซึ่งยังคงมีเนื้อหาเกี่ยวกับอุปกรณ์ตัวเดิม โดยคำขอจดสิทธิบัตรที่เพิ่งเผยแพร่นี้เกี่ยวกับการใช้งานอุปกรณ์เพื่อการอ่านบทความ และการใช้ประโยชน์จากจุดที่หน้าจอสามารถพับครึ่งได้เพื่อการสั่งงานระบบซอฟต์แวร์

เริ่มจากสิทธิบัตรที่ Microsoft ได้รับอนุมัติไปแล้ว เนื้อหาหลักที่ขอจดสิทธิบัตรนั้นเน้นไปที่การออกแบบอุปกรณ์หนึ่งชิ้นที่มีหน้าจอแบ่งได้เป็น 2 ส่วน แต่ละส่วนมีกล้องถ่ายภาพเป็นของตัวเอง โดยหน้าจอ 2 ส่วนที่ถูกแบ่งออกจากกันนั้นยังคงเชื่อมติดกันด้วยบานพับ โดยการใช้งานประโยชน์จากหน้าจอและกล้องที่มีอยู่ 2 ชุดนั้นจะช่วยให้ผู้ใช้ 2 คน สามารถใช้อุปกรณ์ดังกล่าวเพื่อการสนทนาผ่านวิดีโอได้ในคราวเดียวกัน

No Description

แนวคิดหลักของเนื้อหาสิทธิบัตรนี้คือแทนที่ผู้ใช้ 2 คน (สมมติว่าเป็นผู้ใช้ A และผู้ใช้ B) จะต้องมานั่งเบียดกันเพื่อให้กล้องจับภาพทั้งคู่ส่งไปแสดงยังหน้าจอของคู่สนทนาปลายทางได้ ก็เปลี่ยนให้อุปกรณ์มีกล้อง 2 ตัวและมีหน้าจอ 2 ส่วน โดยสามารถหันหน้าจอและกล้องส่วนแรกไปทางผู้ใช้ A และหันหน้าจอพร้อมกล้องส่วนที่ 2 ไปยังผู้ใช้ B

No Description

จากภาพประกอบและเนื้อหาที่อธิบายเรื่องลักษณะภายนอกและการใช้อุปกรณ์ในสิทธิบัตรนี้ จะว่าไปก็คล้ายกับการเอาสมาร์ทโฟน 2 เครื่องมายึดติดกันด้วยบานพับ แต่ต้องไม่ลืมว่าจุดเด่นของอุปกรณ์ที่มีหน้าจอพับได้ตามทีระบุในสิทธิบัตรนี้ก็คือมันยังคงใช้หน่วยประมวลผลแค่ตัวเดียว ระบบเซ็นเซอร์ต่างๆ ก็ยังใช้เป็นชุดเดียวกันอยู่

ข้ามมาที่คำขอจดสิทธิบัตรอีกฉบับที่เนื้อหาข้างในยังคงเกี่ยวพันอยู่กับอุปกรณ์แท็บเล็ตที่มีหน้าจอพับครึ่งได้แบบเดิม สาระสำคัญนั้นเกี่ยวกับเรื่องการใช้งานเพื่ออ่านบทความหรืออีบุ๊ก โดยมี 2 ประเด็นที่น่าสนใจ ประการแรกเกี่ยวกับระบบซอฟต์แวร์ที่จะใช้ประโยชน์จากหน้าจอที่ถูกแบ่งส่วนออกเป็น 2 ซีก ให้แสดงข้อความคนละส่วน และมีส่วนติดต่อผู้ใช้งานเป็นปุ่มสัญลักษณ์แสดงว่าเนื้อหาแต่ละส่วนแต่ละย่อหน้านั้นเกี่ยวกับเรื่องอะไรบ้าง

No Description

ตัวอย่างในภาพประกอบคำขอจดสิทธิบัตรนั้นจะเห็นว่าฝั่งขวามือมีสัญลักษณ์อยู่ 4 ปุ่ม ได้แก่ รูปคาวบอย, รูปบ้าน, "Vacation" และสัญลักษณ์รูปเรือใบ ซึ่งเมื่อกดปุ่มสัญลักษณ์เหล่านี้ มันจะเลื่อนเนื้อหาบทความบนหน้าจอเพื่อไปดึงเอาส่วนที่มีเนื้อหาเกี่ยวกับสัญลักษณ์นั้นขึ้นมาแสดงแทน ระบบการใช้สัญลักษณ์สื่อถึงเนื้อหาแต่ละส่วนนี้อาจเป็นการกำหนดไว้โดยผู้สร้างบทความหรือผู้ใช้งานเองเพื่อให้สะดวกในการเรียกดูเนื้อหาแต่ละส่วนได้ง่ายขึ้น

ประเด็นสำคัญส่วนที่ 2 ของคำขอจดสิทธิบัตรที่เพิ่งเผยแพร่ของ Microsoft นี้คือเรื่องการใช้จุดเด่นของบานพับที่ยึดหน้าจอทั้ง 2 ซีกของอุปกรณ์เข้าไว้ด้วยกันเพื่อการอ่านบทความหรืออีบุ๊ก เมื่อผู้ใช้ทำการโยกหน้าจอด้านขวาเล็กน้อย หน้าจอแสดงผลก็จะเลื่อนเปิดหน้าถัดไปของบทความหรืออีบุ๊กขึ้นมา ซึ่งเป็นการจำลองเหมือนเราเปิดหน้าหนังสือเพื่อพลิกดูเนื้อหาในหน้าถัดไป และคล้ายคลึงกัน หากผู้ใช้ทำการโยกหน้าจอซีกซ้ายเล็กน้อยก็เป็นการเปิดเอาเนื้อหาที่แสดงในหน้าก่อนหน้านั้นกลับมาใหม่เหมือนการพลิกหน้ากระดาษของหนังสือเพื่อดูเนื้อหาในหน้าที่เปิดผ่านไปแล้ว

No Description

สิทธิบัตรทั้งที่ได้รับอนุมัติไปแล้วและที่ยังอยู่ในระหว่างการขออนุมัติเหล่านี้ ชี้ให้เห็นชัดเจนว่า Microsoft มีแผนการเรื่องการสร้างอุปกรณ์แท็บเล็ตที่มีหน้าจอพับครึ่งได้อยู่จริง ซึ่งสอดคล้องกับข่าวลือเรื่อง Surface Andromeda ที่ลือกันว่าเป็นอุปกรณ์ที่พับจอได้ ซึ่งก็ไม่รู้ว่านี่จะถือเป็น "อุปกรณ์สื่อสารชนิดใหม่" ที่ Panos Panay เคยบอกว่า Microsoft กำลังพัฒนาอยู่หรือไม่

          Centra embraces transformation, improves patient care with Office 365 intelligent business tools      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Today’s post was written by Joseph (Jody) Hobbs, managing director of business applications and information security officer at Centra.

Profile picture of Jody Hobbs.Centra is proud to count itself among the early adopters of cloud technology in the healthcare field. Back in 2014, we saw cloud computing as a way to keep up with the rapid growth we were experiencing across the enterprise—and the challenge of adapting to industry changes under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). Five years later, we’re still using Microsoft Cloud services to remain on the leading edge of business productivity software so that we can provide exceptional patient care.

With Microsoft 365, we are better able to adapt to industry-wide changes introduced by ACA, such as the transition from a fee-for-service model to a quality-based model. This change made capturing data and analytics very important, because now reimbursement is based on quality of care, not quantity of services. We use Power BI, the data analytics tool from Microsoft Office 365 E5, to meet new healthcare reporting requirements and provide a wealth of data to our clinicians. They use this data to measure their performance against quality benchmarks to improve patient experiences and health outcomes.

We also turned to Microsoft 365 to help address Centra data security and privacy policies. Microsoft accommodated our requirement for data to remain in the continental United States, which helps us comply with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations that are standard in the healthcare industry. We also found a great solution for emailing sensitive information by combining a Microsoft two-factor authentication solution with our existing encryption appliance. Microsoft invests an incredible amount in its security posture, more than we ever could, and this, along with the knowledge that our data is not intermingled with others’ data in the tenant, gives us peace of mind. And we use Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection, which gives us great insight into malicious activities aimed at our employees’ inboxes.

Keeping our Firstline Workers flexible and mobile is another major priority. We plan to get all our clinical workers online with Office 365 to actualize our vision for a more productive, mobile workforce. We have almost 4,000 employees taking advantage of Office 365 ProPlus and downloading up to five instances of Office 365 on a range of devices. This makes it seamless for them to work from home or the office using the same powerful, cloud-based productivity apps.

As Centra continues to grow from a network of hospitals to an assortment of health-related enterprises, adding everything from a college of nursing to our own insurance business, we see a cloud-based workplace solution as key to staying agile and making the most of our momentum. In Microsoft 365, we have found a solution that marries the strict security requirements of our industry with the needs of a workforce that demands anytime, anywhere access to colleagues and information. For Centra, change isn’t just a matter of increasing productivity or mobility—at the end of the day, our ability to stay up to date with the latest technology innovations means we are providing the best care possible.

Intel sold $1 billion of artificial intelligence chips in 2017Intel Corp on Wednesday said it sold $1 billion of artificial intelligence processor chips in 2017, the first time the world's second-largest chipmaker disclosed revenue from the fast-growing computing segment that has fueled sales expansions at rivals such as Nvidia Corp. As PC sales have stagnated, Intel has increasingly been depending on its sales to data centers, which provide behind-the-scenes computing power for mobile and web-based apps. At an event for Wall Street analysts at Intel's Santa Clara, California headquarters to explain its strategy, Navin Shenoy, its data center chief, said the company has been able to modify its CPUs to become more than 200 times better at artificial intelligence training over the past several years.

          Εκτυπωτές, eSport και κρυπτονομίσματα στο στόχαστρο των επιθέσεων DDoS       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Η Kaspersky Lab δημοσίευσε την έκθεσή της για τις υποβοηθούμενες από botnet επιθέσεις για το δεύτερο τρίμηνο του 2018. Τους τελευταίους τρεις μήνες, οι ειδικοί της εταιρείας έχουν παρατηρήσει ότι οι ψηφιακοί εγκληματίες ανακαλούν παλαιότερα τρωτά σημεία, χρησιμοποιούν κάμερες και εκτυπωτές για επιθέσεις DDoS, επεκτείνουν τη λίστα τους με θύματα και δημιουργούν έσοδα από τις προσπάθειές τους μέσω κρυπτονομισμάτων.
Το δεύτερο τρίμηνο του 2018, τα DDoS botnet επιτέθηκαν σε online πόρους σε 74 χώρες. Για πρώτη φορά στην ιστορία των αναφορών DDoS Intelligence, το Χονγκ Κονγκ βρέθηκε μεταξύ των τριών χωρών που δέχτηκαν τις περισσότερες επιθέσεις καταλαμβάνοντας τη δεύτερη θέση: το μερίδιό του πενταπλασιάστηκε και αντιστοιχεί στο 17% του συνόλου των υποβοηθούμενων από botnet επιθέσεων DDoS. Η Κίνα και οι ΗΠΑ παρέμειναν στην πρώτη και τρίτη θέση αντίστοιχα, ενώ η Νότια Κορέα βρίσκεται στην τέταρτη θέση. Οι πόροι που δέχτηκαν τις περισσότερες επιθέσεις στο Χονγκ Κονγκ φιλοξενούν υπηρεσίες και πλατφόρμες cloud computing. Είναι ενδιαφέρον ότι το δεύτερο τρίμηνο είδε το Χονγκ Κονγκ να αντικαθίσταται από το Βιετνάμ στις κορυφαίες δέκα χώρες που φιλοξενούν τους πιο ενεργούς C & C servers. Οι ΗΠΑ, εν τω μεταξύ, ήταν ο ηγέτης αυτής της βαθμολογίας, αντιπροσωπεύοντας σχεδόν το ήμισυ (45%) των ενεργών botnet C & C servers κατά την περίοδο αναφοράς.
Η δραστηριότητα των Windows-based DDoS μειώθηκε κατά σχεδόν επτά φορές, ενώ η δραστηριότητα των Linux-based botnet αυξήθηκε κατά 25%. Αυτό είχε ως αποτέλεσμα τα Linux bots να αντιπροσωπεύουν το 95% του συνόλου των επιθέσεων DDoS στο τρίμηνο, γεγονός που προκάλεσε επίσης απότομη αύξηση του μεριδίου των SYN flood επιθέσεων - από 57% σε 80%.
Κατά την περίοδο αναφοράς, οι ψηφιακοί εγκληματίες άρχισαν να χρησιμοποιούν μερικά πολύ παλιά τρωτά σημεία στις επιθέσεις τους. Για παράδειγμα, οι ειδικοί ανέφεραν ότι οι επιθέσεις DDoS περιλαμβάνουν ευπάθεια στο πρωτόκολλο Universal Plug-and-Play που είναι γνωστό από το 2001, ενώ η ομάδα Kaspersky DDoS Protection παρατήρησε μια οργανωμένη επίθεση χρησιμοποιώντας ευπάθεια στο πρωτόκολλο CHARGEN που έχει περιγραφεί ήδη από το 1983. Ανεξάρτητα από τη μεγάλη διάρκεια υπηρεσίας και το περιορισμένο πεδίο εφαρμογής του πρωτοκόλλου, πολλοί ανοικτοί CHARGEN servers μπορούν να βρεθούν στο διαδίκτυο. Πρόκειται κυρίως για εκτυπωτές και φωτοαντιγραφικά μηχανήματα.
Ωστόσο, η τελειοποίηση των παλαιών τεχνικών δεν εμπόδισε τους ψηφιακούς εγκληματίες να δημιουργήσουν νέα botnets. Για παράδειγμα, στην Ιαπωνία χρησιμοποιήθηκαν 50.000 κάμερες παρακολούθησης για την πραγματοποίηση επιθέσεων DDoS. Μία από τις πιο δημοφιλείς μεθόδους για τη δημιουργία εσόδων από επιθέσεις DDoS παραμένει η στόχευση κρυπτονομισμάτων και συναλλαγματικών ισοτιμιών. Μια τυπική περίπτωση είναι αυτή του κρυπτονομίσματος Verge, κατά την οποία οι χάκερ επιτέθηκαν σε μερικές «δεξαμενές εξόρυξης» κλέβοντας 35 εκατομμύρια XVGs.
Οι πλατφόρμες παιχνιδιών εξακολουθούν να είναι στόχος επιθέσεων, ιδιαίτερα κατά τη διάρκεια των eSports τουρνουά. Επιπλέον, σύμφωνα με την Kaspersky Lab, οι επιθέσεις DDoS δεν επηρεάζουν μόνο τους servers παιχνιδιών (που συχνά γίνονται με στόχο την απαίτηση λύτρων για να μην διαταράξουν τον διαγωνισμό), αλλά και τους ίδιους τους παίκτες που συνδέονται από τις δικές τους πλατφόρμες. Μια οργανωμένη επίθεση DDoS σε βασικούς παίκτες μιας ομάδας μπορεί εύκολα να οδηγήσει στην απώλεια και την εξάλειψη μιας ομάδας από ένα τουρνουά. Οι ψηφιακοί εγκληματίες χρησιμοποιούν παρόμοιες τακτικές για να κερδίζουν χρήματα από επιθέσεις σε streamers - κανάλια για streaming σε μεταδόσεις βιντεοπαιχνιδιών. Ο ανταγωνισμός σε αυτόν τον τομέα είναι έντονος και με τη χρήση επιθέσεων DDoS οι ψηφιακοί εγκληματίες μπορούν να παρεμβαίνουν στις online εκπομπές και, συνεπώς, στα κέρδη του streamer.

Augmented Reality headset Magic Leap now available for $2,295

Perhaps the most hyped Virtual, and by Virtual I mean Augmented, Reality headset, Magic Leap, ever has been released to the public. However, the Microsoft HoloLens -like AR headset is by no means everybody's entertainment device, for few reasons.

Magic Leap can be now ordered in six cities in the United States: Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco and Seattle. But even if you live in one of these places, the price might put you off. See, the price for what seems to still be a fairly exclusive product, is $2,295, not including VAT.

If you still want to shell out the cash, you might want to know what you are spending your money on. The hotly anticipated AR device comes in a three pieces with the headset itself being one of them obviously. You also get one touchpad controller as well as the computing part of the operation called the Lightpack.

Included in the Lightpack is Nvidia's Parker mobile CPU, a GPU based on Pascal architecture, eight gigabytes of RAM and 128 GB flash storage. According to the company the battery can run the device for up to 3 hours at a time, which should be more than enough to tire your eyes.

Connectivity-wise Magic Leap supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 and USB-C.

According to some early reviews, including at The Verge, the experience wasn't as polished as expected, although certainly impressive. The technology didn't provide a meaningless upgrade to what could be considered previous gen devices like the HoloLens.

              Preparing for the day quantum computing cracks public-key cryptography: What to do now      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    We don’t know when, but it will happen: Quantum computers will become so powerful that all existing public-key cryptography protections will be quickly crackable. According to Dr. Mark Jackson of Cambridge Quantum Computing, it could be as soon as five years from now.

    The question is: Will we be prepared for that cryptographic day of reckoning?

    When will quantum computing break cryptography?

    Lawrence Gasman, president of IQT Research/Inside Quantum Technology, wrote this: “The timing of the quantum threat is not just uncertain because we don't know how fast the technology will develop, but because we don't even know how fast it has developed already. For all we know, there may be 100 Qubit quantum computers in Virginia, Beijing, Moscow or GCHQ that no one talks about and that can break common encryption schemes right now.”

              The rise of Marc Benioff, the bombastic founder of Salesforce, who just got a new co-CEO (CRM)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    marc benioff segway salesforce 2003

    It seems like Salesforce CEO and founder Marc Benioff never leaves the spotlight.

    Between Salesforce's annual Dreamforce mega-conference in San Francisco, his philanthropy, and his willingness to take political stands, it seems like he's always in the spotlight — even if, sometimes, it's because he's facing protests over Salesforce's work with the United States Customs and Border Patrol.

    Salesforce itself is in a good position: Under Benioff's leadership, the company has swelled to a $106 billion market cap, even as it hit $10 billion in annual revenue for the 2018 fiscal year. It's gone from an upstart Oracle rival to a cloud computing behemoth in its own right. And on Tuesday, Salesforce named former Oracle exec Keith Block as Benioff's co-CEO, giving Benioff some backup in the highest echelons of the company.

    Here's how Benioff, with an estimated net worth of $6.3 billion, worked his way up to the national stage from humble origins.

    Marc Russell Benioff was born in San Francisco on September 25th, 1964, the son of Joelle and Russell Benioff. Benioff is something of an anomaly among Silicon Valley CEOs — he was actually born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area.



    His father, Russell Benioff, owned a local department store in San Francisco. "I learned my work ethic from him," Benioff once said.



    While in high school, Benioff sold his first app — software called "How To Juggle" for the TRS-80 Model 1 computer — to a computer magazine for $75.

              Overreliance on Classical Computing in Quantum Factorization      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Overreliance on Classical Computing in Quantum Factorization Brockmann, Andrew A 2012 quantum experiment factored 143 after performing some simplifications classically. Further research demonstrated that that experiment arguably performed the quantum factorizations of other numbers too, such as 56153. This paper characterizes the numbers factored by the 2012 experiment, demonstrates that there are infinitely many of these numbers if the Bateman-Horn conjecture is correct, and provides $N_{2000} \approx 7.86 \cdot 10^{2000}$ as an explicit example. Finally, we show that, in asymptotic terms, most of the work in these factorizations was done classically. These quantum factorizations therefore do not seem to indicate progress toward factoring large RSA moduli.

              Evaluating Hyperledger Composer      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Key Takeaways Only a very narrow subset of use cases is appropriate for this technology. The way that Hyperledger Fabric uses MVCC (multiversion concurrency control) when validating write batches is safe enough for financial applications in a decentralized ledger but may not scale efficiently enough in order to be attractive to B2C startups. Avoid this technology if you can make all of your transactions idempotent. This technology is still somewhat immature. Even though this is an open-source project, there are currently some limitations in choice of cloud provider when moving to a production environment (that could change).

    I have been following the three-year-old Hyperledger Fabric open-source project since its code base moved to GitHub about two years ago. The Hyperledger projects are hosted by the linux Foundation and sponsored mostly by IBM. They promote the use of what are known as private, or permissioned, blockchains. With a public blockchain, the first anonymous miner who solves a cryptographic puzzle gets to commit the next block of ledger entries to the chain. Private blockchains solve the consensus problem among authenticated peers using algorithms such as Raft or Paxos .

    With a blockchain, you get CRUD-style access to the ledger. You also get the ability to store mini programs known as smart contracts on the ledger. When a transaction is submitted to a smart contract, all ledger state-mutating operations executed within the chaincode are atomic ― either all operations get committed or none of them do. If the underlying ledger data accessed by the chaincode has been changed by the time that the operations made by the chaincode are to be committed, then the transaction is aborted. This happens automatically and is a big part of the value to writing smart contracts.

    The same folks who released Hyperledger Fabric also released another open-source project, Hyperledger Composer , which makes it easy for developers to write chaincode for Hyperledger Fabric and the DApps (decentralized applications) that can call them.

    Why now?

    Thoughtworks is a technology consulting company (acquired by Apax Partners) that markets itself as "a community of passionate individuals whose purpose is to revolutionize software design, creation and delivery". Twice a year, they release a Technology Radar report that recommends certain technologies be put on hold, assessed, put on trial, or adopted. Volume 18 of this Technology Radar (pdf) , published in May 2018, placed Hyperledger Composer in the trial ring, which they define as "Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk."

    In my role as a software architect, I evaluate emerging technology, and Hyperledger Composer made it onto my personal radar. Every time I evaluate an emerging technology, I use it to implement a rudimentary news feed microservice. Each of these microservices are feature identical and are load-tested in the exact same manner. In this way, I can make reasonable statements about the performance characteristics of any specific technology in comparison with the other technologies. I chose the problem domain of a news feed because of its familiarity and ubiquity in social networks and because it is complicated enough to require non-trivial solutions yet simple enough to understand without getting lost in implementation minutiae. I publish the source code for these microservices, along with the source code needed to load-test them and to collect and analyze the performance results, in a freely available repository on GitHub . In the spirit of scientific peer review, I encourage you to clone the repo and reproduce the results for yourself.

    Building the test microservice

    Hyperledger Composer allows you to write smart contracts in server-side javascript. It makes available a native client library by which Node.js applications can access the ledger and submit transactions to these smart contracts. For the purposes of this experiment, I used an already developed Node.js microservice (see server/feed4 in the repo) as the control. I copied the source code for that microservice to a new folder (see server/feed7/micro-service in the repo) then I replaced all references to mysql, Redis, and Cassandra with calls to the Hyperledger Composer client API. It is the feed7 project that serves as the test in this experiment. Both projects use Elasticsearch because one of the requirements of each news-feed service is a keyword-based search, and a blockchain is not appropriate for that. Like most of the other microservices in this repo, the feed7 microservice uses Swagger to define its REST API. The specification can be found in the server/swagger/news.yaml file.

    With Hyperledger Composer, you create a business network that consists of a data model, a set of transactions that manipulate the data model, and a set of queries by which those transactions can access data within the model. Hyperledger Composer works with Hyperledger Fabric, whose basic network consists of CouchDB , the default peer, the business network peer, a certificate authority service, and an orderer. The feed7 microservice accesses Hyperledger Fabric in the context of this business network, which you can find in the server/feed7/business-network folder.


    Evaluating Hyperledger Composer

    Figure 1: Feed7 components (the test) .

    In the model for this business network, the broadcaster is the participant. There are friendship, inbound, and outbound assets. The friendship asset captures the friend relationship between two broadcasters. Each inbound asset is a news-feed item meant for the associated broadcaster. The outbound asset is a news-feed item that was sent by the associated broadcaster. There are two transactions in this business network: broadcasters can friend each other and a broadcaster can broadcast a news-feed item to its friends. The only query needed inside the business network is for the broadcast transaction to access the broadcaster’s friends.

    async function broadcastParticipants(tx) {
    const factory = getFactory();
    const created = Date.now();
    const now = new Date();
    const k = tx.sender.participantId + '|' + created + '|';
    const outboundRegistry = await getAssetRegistry('info.glennengstrand.Outbound');
    const ok = 'Outbound:' + k + Math.random();
    const inboundRegistry = await getAssetRegistry('info.glennengstrand.Inbound');
    var o = factory.newResource('info.glennengstrand', 'Outbound', ok);
    o.created = now;
    o.subject = tx.subject;
    o.story = tx.story;
    o.sender = tx.sender;
    await outboundRegistry.add(o);
    const friends = await query('broadcasterFriends', { broadcaster: 'resource:info.glennengstrand.Broadcaster#' + tx.sender.participantId });
    for (i = 0; i < friends.length; i++) {
    const friend = friends[i];
    const ik = 'Inbound:' + k + Math.random();
    var inb = factory.newResource('info.glennengstrand', 'Inbound', ik);
    inb.created = now;
    inb.subject = tx.subject;
    inb.story = tx.story;
    inb.recipient = friend.to;
    await inboundRegistry.add(inb);
    }
    }

    Code Sample 1: A smart contract.

    The Hyperledger Composer API that is intended to be called within a smart contract closely resembles the API that is intended to be called by the Node.js DApp, but there are some interesting differences. Within the smart contract, you must use the async/await mechanism, but within the DApp, you had to use promises. Smart contracts always had to use predefined queries but DApp code could build a query dynamically and run that. When querying or retrieving either a participant or asset from the DApp, you had to include the constant “PID:” as a part of the key but not when accessing the same data from chaincode.

    function submitTransaction(bizNetworkConnection, transaction, from, subject, story, callback, retry) {
    const elastic = require('../repositories/elastic');
    bizNetworkConnection.submitTransaction(transaction)
    .then((result) => {
    const retVal = {
    "from": from,
    "occurred": Date.now(),
    "subject": subject,
    "story": story
    };
    elastic.index(from, story);
    callback(null, retVal);
    }).catch(() => {
    setTimeout(() => {
    submitTransactionRetry(bizNetworkConnection, transaction, from, subject, story, callback, 2 * retry);
    }, retry + Math.floor(Math.random() * Math.floor(1000)));
    });
    }
    exports.addOutbound = function(args, callback) {
    const BusinessNetworkConnection = require('composer-client').BusinessNetworkConnection;
    const bizNetworkConnection = new BusinessNetworkConnection();
    bizNetworkConnection.connect(process.env.CARD_NAME)
    .then((bizNetworkDefinition) => {
    const factory = bizNetworkDefinition.getFactory();
    var transaction = factory.newTransaction('info.glennengstrand', 'Broadcast');
    transaction.sender = factory.newRelationship('info.glennengstrand', 'Broadcaster', 'PID:' + args.body.value.from);
    transaction.subject = args.body.value.subject;
    transaction.story = args.body.value.story;
    submitTransaction(bizNetworkConnection, transaction, args.body.value.from, args.body.value.subject, args.body.value.story, callback, 2000);
    });
    }

    Code Sample 2: A DApp calling a smart contract.

    In the DApp source code, you may notice all this retry logic when submitting a transaction. That is because Hyperledger Fabric uses MVCC (multiversion concurrency control) when validating write batches and will easily throw a read conflict error. What you do to resolve that is to sleep a slightly randomized amount of time then retry the transaction.

    Testing the microservice under load

    Both the control and the test use the same load-test application, which you can find in the client/load folder of the repo. The load test creates 10 participants in an eternal loop, and gives each participant anywhere from two to four friends. It has each participant broadcast 10 news-feed items, each of which consists of 150 randomly generated numbers. The load-test app spins up three threads, each doing this process 90% of the time. The other 10% is testing the search functionality.

    Instead of calling the news-feed microservice directly, the load-test application calls an open-source API gateway called Kong , which proxies each request from the load-test application to the news-feed microservice. Kong is configured to use the http-log plugin in order to send request and response logs for each call to another microservice, which in turn sends the performance-related parts to Elasticsearch in batches. You can find the source code for the Kong logger microservice in the client/perf4 folder.

    I used Kibana to visualize the performance data, including throughput, average latency, and percentile latency. Whenever possible, I always collected summaries of performance metrics from two hours of data.


    Evaluating Hyperledger Composer

    Figure 2: Per-minute throughput of outbound post requests for a test (i.e., Hyperledger Composer and Fabric) experiment.


    Evaluating Hyperledger Composer

    Figure 3: Per-minute average of latency of outbound post requests for a test (i.e., Hyperledger Composer and Fabric) experiment.

    I deployed the control twice, both times in EC2 using m4.xlarge instances; one time when the feed4 service was running in a Docker container and another time when it wasn’t. The Docker version experienced 6% less throughput and almost no difference in latency. I also deployed the test twice, both times in EC2 using m4.xlarge instances for Kong, Cassandra (used by Kong), Elasticsearch, and the load-test application. The first test deployed Hyperledger Fabric, Composer, and the feed7 business network and microservice on an m4.xlarge and the second test used an m4.2xlarge, to see the performance differences in scaling up.


    Evaluating Hyperledger Composer

    Figure 4: Feed7 deployment (the test).

    To allow for valid comparative analysis, and because production configurations were not readily available, both the control and the test used developer configurations for everything. There exists an AWS CloudFormation template for Hyperledger Fabric, but it is deploying the basic network, which is Hyperledger-speak for a developer configuration. The only online documentation for a production configuration that I could find, outside of advertisements for IBM Cloud, were a couple of blogs on H acker N oon by some folks from VMware. Those blogs claimed a production configuration and a diagram indicated that the orderer was backed by Kafka, but the configtx.yaml file in the referenced GitHub repo shows an OrdererType of solo, not Kafka. That suggests a developer configuration. A comment in the source code says, “The solo consensus scheme is very simple, and allows only one consenter for a given chain. It accepts messages being delivered via Order/Configure, orders them, and then uses the blockcutter to form the messages into blocks before writing to the given ledger.”

    Performance results

    There is both good and bad news for Hyperledger when it comes to performance under load. Here is the bad news: the Hyperledger version of the news feed demonstrated over 300 times less throughput and was three orders of magnitude slower than the traditional version. But the good news is that doubling the hardware capacity for the Hyperledger version yielded a 20% improvement in throughput and almost halved the latency.

    The control sustained over 13,000 outbound post requests (i.e., a news-feed broadcast) per minute (RPM). Average latency was 4 ms and the 99th percentile was 9 ms. The test experienced on average 29 outbound post requests per minute for the m4.xlarge and 38 for the m4.2xlarge. The average latency was 4.7 s for the m4.xlarge and 3.2 s for the m4.2xlarge. The 99th percentile latency was 10.2 s for the m4.xlarge and 4.9 s for the m4.2xlarge.


    Evaluating Hyperledger Composer

    Figure 5: Outbound-post comparative performance summary. Latency numbers are in milliseconds.

    There are some other inefficiencies that I need to cover here. The CPU and performance-related metrics on the control quickly reached steady state while the same metrics on the test got worse and worse over time. The biggest offender with CPU was the default peer process in Fabric. This was surprising because the microservice always accessed the news-feed business network whose corresponding peer container was not as CPU intensive. Perhaps the default peer is used to endorse transactions? I could find no way to remove it from the configuration. In a production configuration, you would have multiple peers, otherwise the ledger would not be decentralized.

    For both the test and the control, the microservice will eventually crash, once the SSD for the database runs out of available storage. For the control, that happens in the Cassandra database after almost 30 million outbound posts have occurred. For the test, that happens in the CouchDB database after about 4,000 outbound posts have occurred. The SSD storage for both the control and the test have the same capacity, which is 20 GB. Clearly, storage efficiency is not currently a primary concern of the developers contributing to the Hyperledger Fabric project.

    Conclusion

    Originally, I believed that the news-feed application would be a good use case for a blockchain. The primary action of the load-test application is appending friends and appending news-feed items, which sounds very similar to appending to a ledger. Now, however, I believe that analogy to be superficial. The major concern for blockchains is to prevent what is known as the double-spend problem ― what good is a blockchain that cannot prevent participants from spending the same money twice? For public blockchains, that problem is handled using unspent transaction outputs, or UTXO. Hyperledger Fabric addresses the problem via MVCC on the read sets when validating write batches. Fabric does have inefficiencies that can be addressed as it matures, but I believe that this use of MVCC in order to prevent double spending is an inherent cause for the low throughput and high latency. For all intents and purposes, the news-feed transactions are essentially idempotent. There are no significant consequences if two participants friend themselves in a different order or multiple times, or broadcast items to each other in a different order or multiple times. Fabric is allocating a lot of CPU time and memory to prevent a problem that has no significant impact on a news feed.

    This evaluation leads me to believe that the future of software development will not be eaten by blockchains. There is only a very narrow subset of use cases that justify the high computing costs inherent in automatic, guaranteed, distributed concurrency control and validation. Basically, you need to require a consortium marketplace where idempotent transactions are not a possibility. While evaluating Hyperledger Composer at this time has some merit, the current level of maturity makes committing to a production release in the near future highly problematic. The Hyperledger projects are all open source but at the time of this writing there appear to be limitations in choice of cloud provider when progressing to a production environment.

This report focuses on the top players in North America, Europe, China, Japan, Southeast Asia India and Other regions (Middle East & Africa, Central & South America).

    Virtual reality or virtual realities (VR), also known as immersive multimedia or computer-simulated reality, is a computer technology that replicates an environment, real or imagined, and simulates a user's physical presence and environment to allow for user interaction. Virtual realities artificially create sensory experience, which can include sight, touch, hearing, and smell.
    Augmented reality (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. As a result, the technology functions by enhancing ones current perception of reality.

    Hardware components for augmented reality are: processor, display, sensors and input devices. Modern mobile computing devices like smartphones and tablet computers contain these elements which often include a camera and MEMS sensors such as accelerometer, GPS, and solid state compass, making them suitable AR platforms.

    North America dominated the market in 2016 with a revenue share of 43%, which can be attributed to constant technological advancement of related products, prevalence of neurological & psychological disorders, increased adoption of such advanced technologies, and presence of a sophisticated healthcare infrastructure. Furthermore, growing technological advancements in information technology and government support for integration of these technologies in medical field contribute to the large share of the market.

              Re: Reporting      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Maybe you are not happy with Fred Wilson and USV. USV is a venture capital (VC) firm.

    I suspect that on the whole over the decades, net, US VC firms have done a lot of good for the US economy. E.g., a lot of people really like Intel, Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Disqus, Amazon and more, and IIRC they all received VC equity funding.

    E.g., personally I'm astounded beyond any understanding at a Western Digital 2 TB disk drive for about $60, 16 GB of DDR3 ECC main memory for $100, an AMD FX-8350 64 bit 8 core processor with a standard 4.0 GHz clock for now about $90, what is available in solid state disks, what is coming for much larger memories, non-volatile, nearly as fast as DDR3, 4, 5 and to be attached a lot like main memory, etc. You see, anyone in computing for more than a decade or so, especially two decades, compares with the past and is next to speechless in awe: E.g., IIRC one of the last IBM water cooled mainframes for some millions of dollars had one core and a clock of 153 MHz. E.g., when I was in an AI project at IBM, I was already doing daily upchucks at AI and to have something better stirred up and published some original applied math based on measure preserving transformations as in ergodic theory, etc. At first glance, my work made profligate use of computing resources. Some people mentioned that fact as a concern, but all such people right away wouldn't go there, wouldn't take even a half step, to say that the computing resources were too high. Why? Because computing per dollar was improving so fast that in a few years the resources needed by my math might be trivial. They were correct: Now for any at all serious application, the computing cost is nearly trivial. And with the memory and processor progress now, in a year or so the computing needed will be a nit on a gnat.

    So, VCs have been part of some astounding progress.

    I do have a gripe with nearly all the information technology (IT) VCs. The gripe is in two parts:

    (1) Long commonly VC Web sites touted that they were looking for leading edge, disruptive, revolutionary, ..., technology for really good solutions for really big problems. Commonly those VCs also claimed to have "deep domain knowledge". Okay, fine with me, boss. Let's shake hands and get to work!

    (2) Even more commonly the IT VCs essentially uniformly and universally, "absolutely, positively", feet locked in 5' of reinforced concrete, flatly refused ever to consider any technology at all. They wouldn't fund it, evaluate it, look at it, or even want to hear about it.

    I understood (1) -- fine with me, boss. And for (2), in high end parts of US national security and in such parts of academic and industrial research, I've seen lots of technology very carefully evaluated. So, that, as in (2), the IT VCs would refuse to consider technology was a big surprise, an especially big surprise given (1). Moreover, seeing too many VC partners with undergraduate majors in history and MBA degrees (I used to be a prof in an MBA program), it was clear that "deep domain knowledge" was an outrageously funny thigh slapper.

    So (1) was nonsense, hype, flim-flam, strange marketing, likely something to get "deal flow" and some tutorials, close to the line of false advertising.

    The false advertising in (1) and the "bait and switch" of (2) cost me a lot of time and effort.

    Now I understand more about how IT VCs work. Fine with me. They can do what they want, and I'll continue with my project.

    I see nearly no chance we would ever do a deal -- by the time I have what they want, they will no longer have anything I want, and I'm really sour on having a lot of lawyers around, really unhappy about deal terms, especially about vesting my stock in a company I used to own 100% of, just terrified to report to a BoD, and highly concerned about their, to me outrageously arrogant, puffed up claims of "deep domain knowledge" and, thus, having to discuss new technology with them and get their approvals, e.g., for budgeting.

    For other IT entrepreneurs, I'd advise (1) pick and run a project assuming all the funding is from your checkbook and (2) accept the old Hollywood remark "Don't call us. We'll call you.", that is, if your work has what some VC wants, then likely they will notice and call you.

    Besides, if you contact them, then they are too likely to regard your contact as from "over the transom" with apparently some scatological suggestions.

    One more: Some of the VCs emphasize that they want only "warm introductions". Okay, I can get some introductions from some high level people, some famous in business. Alas, there is little chance that the VCs would know those people; indeed, they likely couldn't get an impressive "warm introduction" to me, either! "Warm introduction" -- outrageous, incompetent arrogance.

    Net, hopefully VCs will hold down on anything like false advertising and bait and switch; IT entrepreneurs won't waste their time and the VCs' time; VCs will get along with whatever it is they want to do; and IT entrepreneurs will get on with their work, maybe with VC funding or maybe not but at least without a lot of wasted time. So, if you don't like some VCs, then just ignore them and get back to work on something you can do well with.

              Deep Learning Based Inference of Private Information Using Embedded Sensors in Smart Devices      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Smart mobile devices and mobile apps have been rolling out at swift speeds over the last decade, turning these devices into convenient and general-purpose computing platforms. Sensory data from smart devices are important resources to nourish mobile services, and they are regarded as innocuous information that can be obtained without user permissions. In this article, we show that this seemingly innocuous information could cause serious privacy issues. First, we demonstrate that users' tap positions on the screens of smart devices can be identified based on sensory data by employing some deep learning techniques. Second, it is shown that tap stream profiles for each type of apps can be collected, so that a user's app usage habit can be accurately inferred. In our experiments, the sensory data and mobile app usage information of 102 volunteers are collected. The experiment results demonstrate that the prediction accuracy of tap position inference can be at least 90 percent by utilizing convolutional neural networks. Furthermore, based on the inferred tap position information, users' app usage habits and passwords may be inferred with high accuracy.
              Multistage and Elastic Spam Detection in Mobile Social Networks through Deep Learning      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    While mobile social networks (MSNs) enrich people's lives, they also bring many security issues. Many attackers spread malicious URLs through MSNs, which causes serious threats to users' privacy and security. In order to provide users with a secure social environment, many researchers make great efforts. The majority of existing work is aimed at deploying a detection system on the server and classifying messages or users in MSNs through graph-based algorithms, machine learning or other methods. However, as a kind of instant messaging service, MSNs continually generate a large amount of user data. Without affecting the user experience, with existing detection mechanisms it is difficult to implement real-time detection in practical applications. In order to realize real-time message detection in MSNs, we can build more powerful server clusters or improve the utilization rate of computing resources. Assuming that computing resources of servers are limited, we use edge computing to improve the utilization rate of computing resources. In this article, we propose a multistage and elastic detection framework based on deep learning, which sets up a detection system at the mobile terminal and the server, respectively. Messages are first detected on the mobile terminal, and then the detection results are forwarded to the server along with the messages. We also design a detection queue, according to which the server can detect messages elastically when computing resources are limited, and more computing resources can be used for detecting more suspicious messages. We evaluate our detection framework on a Sina Weibo dataset. The results of the experiment show that our detection framework can improve the utilization rate of computing resources and can realize real-time detection with a high detection rate at a low false positive rate.
              Robust Mobile Crowd Sensing: When Deep Learning Meets Edge Computing      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    The emergence of MCS technologies provides a cost-efficient solution to accommodate large-scale sensing tasks. However, despite the potential benefits of MCS, there are several critical issues that remain to be solved, such as lack of incentive-compatible mechanisms for recruiting participants, lack of data validation, and high traffic load and latency. This motivates us to develop robust mobile crowd sensing (RMCS), a framework that integrates deep learning based data validation and edge computing based local processing. First, we present a comprehensive state-of-the-art literature review. Then, the conceptual design architecture of RMCS and practical implementations are described in detail. Next, a case study of smart transportation is provided to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed RMCS framework. Finally, we identify several open issues and conclude the article.
              Virtual Local-Hub: A Service Platform on the Edge of Networks for Wearable Devices      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    With the rapid development of sensing and communication capacities, wearable technology, one of the most significant trends in the mobile computing evolution, has been changing our daily life. Wearable devices generally require a powerful local hub to replenish computing capacities for advanced features. However, it is inconvenient to carry the local hub in many situations, even though more and more wearable devices are equipped with a WiFi/cellular interface, enabling them to exchange data with the local hub through the Internet, However, this results in long response time and functional limitations. To overcome the restriction of a physical local hub, we propose a VLH solution, which utilizes network equipment nearby (e.g., a WiFi hotspot or cellular base station) as the local hub. In this article, we first describe the operating mechanism of a local hub and give an overview of the VLH system. Then we describe the system design of the VLH, including the container-based virtualization and the modified microservice architecture which enables remote function module sharing in the fog-computing environment. We then propose an algorithm to deal with function module allocation and sharing decisions. Finally, we demonstrate and verify the effectiveness and practicality of VLH via both simulations under large-scale network setting and real-world prototype implementation.

    china shipping port container export import trade

    Good morning! Here's what you need to know in markets on Thursday.

    1. Chinese state media on Thursday accused the United States of a "mobster mentality" in its move to implement additional tariffs on Chinese goods, and warned that Beijing had all the necessary means to fight back. The comments mark a ratcheting up in tensions between the world's two largest economies over a trade dispute, which is already impacting industries ranging from steel to cars and causing unease over which products could be targeted next.

    2. Asian shares were subdued on Thursday after a new round of tit-for-tat tariffs in the US-Sino trade conflict torpedoed oil prices, while the Russian rouble tumbled as the US slapped fresh sanctions on the country. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan barely budged as caution dominated. Japan's Nikkei slipped 0.12% as of 7:43 a.m. BST (2.43 a.m. ET). The Russian Ruble had stabilised against the dollar at the same time.

    3. The pound fell below $1.29 for the first time since September 2017 on Wednesday as fears about a possible no-deal Brexit continued. The currency continued to fall on Thursday morning, down 0.11% to $1.2875 at 7:58 a.m. BST (2.58 a.m. ET).

    4. Intel on Wednesday said it sold $1 billion of artificial intelligence processor chips in 2017, the first time the world's second-largest chipmaker disclosed revenue from the fast-growing computing segment. As PC sales have stagnated, Intel has increasingly been depending on its sales to data centers, which provide behind-the-scenes computing power for mobile and web-based apps.

    5. The New York City Council on Wednesday agreed to cap the number of licenses for ride-hailing services such as Uber for one year, dealing a blow to the companies that have relied on the largest US metro area for a major source of their revenue. The City Council measure was aimed at reducing traffic congestion and increasing driver paychecks in the wake of the explosive growth of for-hire vehicles and a rash of suicides among New York's "Yellow Cab" drivers who have seen their incomes fall.

    6. China has revamped a national leadership group charged with planning and studying its key technological development strategies, signaling potential policy shifts are underway as its technological ambitions fueled a backlash abroad.The group, formerly called the "National Technology and Education leadership Group" under the state Cabinet, has been renamed without the mention of education to reflect a focus on technology. Shares of China's leading tech firms rallied on Thursday, with investors expecting a policy boost for their sector.

    7. Twenty-First Century Fox's quarterly revenue jumped 17.7% as the Rupert Murdoch-controlled media company received higher fees from cable distributors. Fox said on Wednesday net income attributable to shareholders increased to $920 million or 49 cents per share in the fourth quarter ended June 30, from $476 million or 26 cents per share a year earlier.

    8. German-owned discount supermarket Aldi is rolling out scores of new products in the United States, it said on Thursday, in an aggressive push to expand in the country even as rivals are struggling in a drawn-out price war. Aldi, the world's No. 5 retailer owned by Aldi Sud, embarked on a $5 billion plan last year to remodel and expand its US chain to 2,500 by the end of 2022 from 1,600 in June 2017.

    9. Conservationists on Wednesday notified the Trump administration that they would sue over its reversal of a 2014 decision prohibiting bee-killing pesticides and genetically modified crops on US wildlife refuges. The reversal, issued on August 2 in a US Fish and Wildlife Service memo, suggested that neonicotinoid pesticides, or neonics, were needed for "farming practices” in refuge areas where that was allowed.

    10. Mazda and Suzuki conducted improper fuel economy and emissions tests on their vehicles, the latest in a series of compliance scandals in Japan's auto sector, the Nikkei business daily reported. Mazda and Suzuki have submitted reports of their findings on their tests to the transport ministry and will publicize details on Thursday, the Nikkei said.

    The U.S. and European countries are presently projected to remain the important regions in the global cyber-physical system market.

    Valley Cottage, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/08/2018 -- Future Market Insights (FMI) has published a new market research report on cyber-physical systems. The report has been titled "Cyber-Physical System Market: Global Industry Analysis (2013-2017) and Opportunity Assessment (2018-2028)." With the lowering prices of devices such as sensors, several medium and small scale manufacturers and plant owners are shifting their focus towards the deployment of cyber-physical systems in order to convert them into smart factories. These type of cyber-physical systems not only help in eliminating errors that occur due to human intervention but also decrease the overall operational and production costs of a plant.

    A Sample of this Report is Available upon Request @ https://www.futuremarketinsights.com/reports/sample/rep-gb-4498 

    It is always wise to invest in the latest technology instead of being a laggard in terms of technology adoption. Both developed and developing countries are adopting smart technologies to enable a seamless work experience. With this, the demand for cyber-physical systems is also gaining traction across the globe, thereby compelling service providers and vendors to collaborate with solution providers and integrate various communication platforms in order to push the implementation of cyber-physical systems. The core strategies that several cyber-physical system providers are implementing are investment in research and development and partnerships with research organizations for product development. Some of the companies operating in the global cyber-physical system market are Dell EMC, Hewlett Packard Enterprises, IBM Corporation, VMware Inc., SAP SE, Schneider Electric, and Oracle.

    According to the report, the global cyber-physical system market is expected to witness a CAGR of 8.7% during the period 2018 – 2028. The market was worth US$ 55,075.3 Mn in 2017 and is likely to reach a valuation of US$ 137,566.0 Mn by the end of 2028.

    Decreasing Prices of Networking and Sensors to Boost Adoption

    The principal components of a cyber-physical system are storage units, sensors, computing unit, software, and actuators. The declining prices of sensors reduce the overall cost associated with the system, which makes it achievable for small- and medium-sized enterprises. This in turn drives the adoption and application of cyber-physical systems across various industries. Furthermore, the growing economy of several developing economies is benefiting the adoption of cyber-physical systems across the globe. The average household income of developing countries such as India, China, and Brazil among others is anticipated to increase significantly in the coming years. This will shoot up the demand and adoption of new technologically advanced systems such as IoT and CPS, as these nations have witnessed a transition in their spending behavior, and have shown positive adaptability towards such systems for an enhanced end user experience. The swelling economic growth of several developing countries is expected to drive the global cyber-physical system market.

    Data Breaches and Security Threats to Obstruct Market Growth

    The core factor limiting the growth and adoption of cyber-physical systems is the dearth of security associated with these systems. As any type of system is linked with the cloud, it becomes susceptible to cyber-attacks and data breaches. Moreover, the change from a closed system to an open system has further made way for this risk. As the application of cyber-physical systems is in industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, and automotive, among others, it comprises valuable data and information that could lead to a catastrophe under a data attack. Consequently, with the threat of compromising critical data, many industries are hesitant in adopting cyber-physical systems. This can restrain market growth to a certain extent.

              Optimality-based approach for computationally efficient modeling of phytoplankton growth, chlorophyll-to-carbon, and nitrogen-to-carbon ratios      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Publication date: 10 October 2018

    Source: Ecological Modelling, Volume 385

    Author(s): Bingzhang Chen, S. Lan Smith

    Abstract

    To increase the efficiency of computing phytoplankton growth rate (μ), chlorophyll-to-carbon (θ) and nitrogen-to-carbon ratios (QN) in three-dimensional ocean circulation models, it is preferable to directly calculate θ and QN from ambient environmental factors instead of treating them as independent tracers. Optimality-based modeling has emerged as a novel and efficient approach to fulfill this task. However, it is still unclear precisely how the response of optimality-based models differs from conventional models. We compare a recent optimality-based phytoplankton model (PAHLOW model), based on which the familiar Droop function can be derived, to a commonly used Monod-type (MONOD) model. The two models generate similar patterns of μ with some important differences. Compared to the MONOD model, the PAHLOW model predicts higher μ under light limitation. The PAHLOW model also predicts that θ decreases with decreasing light under dim light and predicts decreasing QN with increasing light even at constant nutrient levels. Compared to the MONOD model, these features of the PAHLOW model qualitatively agree better with laboratory data. The PAHLOW model also suffers from a few shortcomings including the underestimation of θ under very low light and two times of computation time compared to the MONOD model. The two models generate striking differences of QN and θ in a one-dimensional implementation. Validation of such patterns will require more direct in situ measurements of μ, θ and QN.

              模拟线弹性材料能有多难?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    线弹性模型是结构力学分析中最基础的材料模型。虽然听上去微不足道,但模型中却包含不少难以一眼看出的重要细节。在本篇文章中,我们将深入讨论线弹性材料模型的相关理论和应用,并且大致介绍其各向同性和各向异性、材料数据的容许值、不可压缩性,以及与几何非线性之间的相互作用。

    各向同性线弹性

    在绝大多数涉及线弹性材料的仿真中,我们都要模拟完全不具有方向敏感性的各向同性材料。描述这种材料只需要两个独立材料参数。有很多方法来选择合适的参数,不过其中某些参数则更为常用。

    杨氏模量、剪切模量和泊松比

    杨氏模量、剪切模量和泊松比是材料数据表中最常见的参数。它们不是独立参数,因为剪切模量 G 可以用杨氏模量 E 和泊松比 \nu 推算出来,计算公式为

    G=\frac{E}{2(1+\nu)}

    杨氏模量可以通过单轴拉伸试验直接测量,而剪切模量可以通过纯扭试验测量。

    在单轴试验中,泊松比用于确定材料的横向收缩(或拉升)程度。其容许范围为 -1 < \nu < 0.5,当其为正值时,表示材料受拉时会在厚度方向上发生收缩。有一些材料具有负泊松比,它们被称为 Auxetics。葡萄酒瓶中软木塞的泊松比接近于零,所以无论是拔出或推入,它的直径都不受影响。

    对于大部分金属和合金而言, \nu\approx 1/3,所以剪切模量大约等于杨氏模量的 40%。

    在给定 \nu 的可能取值后,剪切模量和杨氏模量的比值范围为

    \frac{1}{3}<\frac{G}{E}<\infty

    \nu 接近 0.5 时,材料变得不可压缩,此类材料会给分析带来特定问题,我们将在下文说明。

    体积模量

    体积模量 K 反映一定均匀压力下的体积变化。它可以用杨氏模量 E 和泊松比 \nu 推导出来,表示为:

    K=\frac{E}{3(1-2\nu)}

    \nu = 1/3 时,体积模量与杨氏模量的值相等,但是对于不可压缩材料( \nu \rightarrow 0.5), K 趋近无穷。

    体积模量往往与剪切模量被一起指定。从某种意义上讲,这两个参数是最独立的参数选择。体积变化仅仅取决于体积模量,扭曲则完全受剪切模量决定。

    拉梅常数

    拉梅常数 \mu\lambda 常见于论述弹性的数学论文。我们可以用拉梅常数方便地表述应力张量 \sigma 和应变张量 \varepsilon 间的全三维本构关系: \sigma=2\mu\varepsilon+\lambda trace(\varepsilon)I 常数 \mu 即为剪切模量, \lambda 则可以写为

    \lambda=\frac{E\nu}{(1+\nu)(1-2\nu)}

    点击此链接 ,可查看各类弹性参数之间的完整转换表。

    线弹性材料的不可压缩性

    橡胶一类的材料几乎不可压缩。从数学角度来说,完全不可压缩材料与可压缩材料具有本质的区别。因为不会发生体积变化,因此无法确定其平均应力。平均应力(压力)p 是体积变化 \Delta V 的函数,所以其状态方程 p=f(\Delta V) 不成立,而必须用一个约束说明进行替代 \Delta V=0 不可压缩性还有另一个角度需要注意, (1-2\nu) 项会出现在本构方程的分母中,即如果 \nu = 0.5 ,则方程将除以零。那么我们是否可以设 \nu= 0.499 ,从而对不可压缩材料实现近似模拟吗?

    想法可行,但在这种情况中,基于标准位移的有限元公式可能得出不理想的结果,这是由“锁定”现象引起的。造成的后果包括:

    • 模型过于生硬。
    • 应力呈棋盘式分布。
    • 方程的病态导致求解器发生错误或发出警告。

    补救方法是使用“混合方程”,将压力作为额外自由度引入。在 COMSOL Multiphysics 中,勾选材料模型设置窗口中的“几乎不可压缩材料”复选框,即可启用混合方程。


    为线弹性材料启用混合公式的部分设置。


    当泊松比约大于或等于 0.45 时,体积模量比剪切模量大超过一个数量级,因此使用混合公式是明智的做法。其效果示例如下图所示。


    一个简单的平面应变模型中的应力分布,v= 0.499。上方的图表示基于标准位移的方程,下方的图表示混合方程。

    在仅涉及位移自由度的解中,其应力分布图在左端(即存在约束的位置)呈现出扭曲的状态。使用混合公式后,这些扭曲几乎全部消失。

    正交各向异性和各向异性

    在一般情况下,线弹性材料的材料属性都具有方向敏感性。其中最普遍的特性是各向异性,这意味着全部六个应力分量都取决于各自不同的应变分量。完整表示这些分量需要 21 个材料参数,很明显,获取全部数据是一项艰巨的任务。如果将应力 \sigma 和应变 \varepsilon 当作矢量,那么二者的关系就可以用“6×6”本构对称矩阵 D ,通过如下方程式进行表示 \sigma=D\varepsilon 幸运的是,各向异性材料通常会表现一定的对称性。在正交各向异性材料中,有三个正交方向上的剪切作用和轴向动作实现解耦。也就是说,当材料沿着其中一个主方向拉伸时,它只会在两个正交方向上收缩,而不会受剪切力的作用。完整描述正交各向异性材料需要九个独立材料参数。

    当以柔度形式记录时,正交各向异性材料的本构关系会更加清晰明了,其中 \varepsilon=C\sigma

    由于柔度矩阵必然是对称的,因此使用的十二个常数可通过符合下方形式的三个对称关系减少为九个

    \frac{\nu_{YX}}{E_{Y}}=\frac{\nu_{XY}}{E_{X}}

    请注意 \nu yx\ne\nu xy ,因此在处理正交各向异性的数据时,一定要确保使用预期泊松比值。并不是所有来源中的数值都是相同的。

    各向异性和正交各向异性常见于非均质材料。其材料属性通常不是由测量得到的,人们更倾向于通过从微观到宏观尺度的均质化过程计算这些属性。关于这种均质化作用在完全不同的研究背景中的讨论,请访问这篇文章进行查看。

    对于非各向同性材料来说,使用描述各向同性材料的类似材料参数进行计算,在取值上可能会受到一些限制。我们虽难以立即发现这些限制,但有两个注意事项会对我们找到限制有所帮助:

    1. 本构矩阵 D 必须是正定的。

    a. 对于各向异性材料,唯一的选择是检查是否所有特征值都为正。

    b. 对于正交各向异性材料,适用条件为:全部六个弹性模量皆为正,且

    \nu_{XY}\nu_{YX}+\nu_{YZ}\nu_{ZY}+\nu_{ZX}\nu_{XZ}+\nu_{YX}\nu_{ZY}\nu_{XZ}<1

    2. 如果材料的压缩率低,则必须使用混合方程。

    a. 我们可以估计等效体积模量和剪切模量的值。

    b. 在不确定的情况下,为了避免可能出现的误差,最好在混合方程中引入额外自由度。


    几何非线性

    在解决几何非线性问题时,“线弹性”的含义实际上是一个常规问题。这里的问题是,我们有多种应力和应变的数学表示方式。如希望了解有关应力和应变的不同测量方式,请阅读之前的一篇文章

    因为在 COMSOL Multiphysics 中,主应力和应变量分别为第二 Piola-Kirchhoff 应力和 Green-Lagrange 应变,因此线弹性自然地被解释为两个量之间的线性关系。人们有时将这种材料称作 St. Venant 材料。

    人们通常凭直觉认为“线弹性”指的是简单拉伸试验中力与位移的线性关系。事实并非如此,因为应力和应变都取决于变形。为了理解这一点,我们来看一看横截面为正方形的条块。


    受到均匀拉伸的条块。

    条块的初始长度为 L_{0} ,初始横截面积 A_{0}=a_{0}^{2} ,其中 a_{0} 表示横截面的初始边长。假设条块的延伸距离为 \Delta ,故现在的长度 L=L_{0}+\Delta=L_{0}(1+\xi) 在这里, 1+\xi 表示轴向拉伸, \xi 可解释为工程应变。横截面的新边长为 a=a_{0}+d=a_{0}(1+\eta) ,其中 \eta 表示横向工程应变。力可表示为轴向 Cauchy 应力 \sigma_{x} ,与当前横截面积的乘积:
    F=\sigma_{x}A=\sigma_{x}A_{0}(1+\eta)^{2}
    为了使用线弹性关系,Cauchy 应力 \sigma 必须表示为第二 Piola-Kirchoff 应力 S 。变换规则为 \sigma=J^{-1}FSF^{T} 其中 F 表示变形梯度张量,体积比例定义为 J=det(F) 。不考虑细节时,单轴的情况可表示为

    \sigma_{x}=\frac{F_{xX}}{F_{yY}F_{zZ}}S_{X}=\frac{(1+\xi)}{(1+\eta)^{2}}S_{X}

    由于对受到单轴拉伸作用的 St. Venant 材料来说,其轴向应力与轴向应变的关系为 S_{x}=E\epsilon_{x},由此得出

    F=S_{x}A_{0}(1+\xi)=EA_{0}(1+\xi)\varepsilon_{ X}

    已知 Green-Lagrange 应变张量在轴向上的项定义为

    \varepsilon_{X}=\frac{\partial_{u}}{\partial X}+\frac{1}{2}(\frac{\partial_{u}}{\partial X})^{2}=\xi+\frac{1}{2}\xi^{2}

    所以力与位移的关系为

    F=EA_{0}(1+\xi)(\xi+\frac{1}{2}\xi^{2})=EA_{0}(\xi+\frac{3}{2}\xi^{2}+\frac{1}{2}\xi^{3})

    具有几何非线性的线弹性材料实际上意味着力与工程应变(或者力与位移之间,因为 \Delta=L_{0}\xi )之间存在立方关系,如下图所示。


    几何非线性条件下的线弹性材料单轴响应。

    如图所示,受压侧的材料刚度接近于零: \xi=\sqrt{1/3}-1\approx-0.42 。在实际操作中,这意味着在这一应变水平下,仿真就会失败。有人认为,现实中不存在大应变下呈线性的材料,所以在实践中不会出现这样的问题。然而线弹性材料通常在远远超出应力合理范围的情况下使用,例如:

    • 通常,在引入更复杂的材料模型之前,您可能想快速检查一遍“数量级”。
    • 模型中存在奇异点,并且致使某一点上产生了极高的应变。
    • 接触问题中的研究总是围绕几何非线性问题。
      • 高压缩应变通常在分析过程中出现于某一时刻的局部接触区域。

    对于以上所有情况来说,如果压缩应力过大,求解器也许会无法求解。如果您怀疑我们的示例属于这种情况,绘制最小主应变是一个很好的检测方法。如果它小于 -0.3 左右,我们就预测到会发生类似故障。由 Green-Lagrange 应变得到的临界值结果为 -1/3,如果这是一个问题,您应该考虑更换一个合适的超弹性材料模型。

    压缩或许不是唯一的问题。在上述分析里,泊松比没有出现在方程中。那么横截面的情况如何呢?

    根据单轴情况中的定义,横向应变与轴向应变的关系为 \varepsilon_{Y}=-\nu\varepsilon_{X} 当这些应变是 Green-Lagrange 应变时,这便是一个非线性关系,可表述为

    \frac{\partial\upsilon}{\partial Y}+\frac{1}{2}(\frac{\partial\upsilon}{\partial Y})^{2}=-\nu(\frac{\partial\upsilon}{\partial X}+\frac{1}{2}(\frac{\partial u}{\partial X})^{2})

    因此横截面的变化具有很强的非线性。求解这个二次方程可得出如下的工程应变之间的关系

    \eta=\sqrt{1-\nu(\xi^{2}+2\xi)}-1

    结果如下图所示。

    St. Venant 材料受到单轴拉伸作用时,其横向位移随轴向位移而变化。图中显示了五个不同的泊松比的值。

    如您所见,当泊松比的值更高时,横截面在大拉伸应力的作用下的塌陷更为迅速。

    如果选择另一种应力和应变数学表述方式,例如 Cauchy 应力与对数或“真实的”应变成正比,那么我们将得到完全不同的响应。当力-位移响应取决于泊松比的值时,这种材料的刚度反而会随着拉伸而下降。虽然在两个不同的仿真平台中,利用大应变弹性计算出的结果存在巨大差异,但两种材料仍旧皆可称为“线弹性”材料。

    关于线弹性材料的结束语

    本文阐释了线弹性材料在使用上的一些限制,重点强调了不可压缩性,以及线弹性与大应变的结合可能产生的使用误区。

    HardenedLinux 写道 "近日,GCP(谷歌云平台)终于推出了VM加固服务项目Shielded VM的beta版本,目前Shielded VMs提供了基于UEFI v2.3.1的verifiedboot和作为measuredboot方案的vTPM实现,vTPM实现了TPM v2.0规范以及通过了FIPS 140-2 Level 1认证,GCP使用了自己研发的芯片TITAN作为物理机的信任根,TITAN项目除了解决传统的固件攻击平面问题外也把通用TPM存在的LPC总线中间人攻击给一并解决掉了,配合硬件信任根以及Hypervisor(类似coreos的定制实现),GCP的用户可以方便的在管理平台上开启vTPM后在Guest VM中使用vTPM完成整个VM启动过程的可信链条构建,用户可以定制自己的策略比如一旦有固件或者内核镜像完整性不满足健康基线则停掉VM展开取证工作或者调查是否因为运维失误导致的故障。自从2013年开始,不少人认为云基础架构安全中remote attestation(远程证明)和Enclave(飞地计算)是刚需,Google为了满足前者开源了go-tpm作为TPM的实现参考以帮助用户更好的融入GCP的基础设施安全,对后者的自由软件实现的推动主要体现在Asylo框架的开源,如果目标是Enclave的通用框架其工程复杂度可见一斑,以Intel SGX为例,不同的实现其安全防护的侧重点完全不同,HardenedLinux社区完全赞同可信计算顶级团队ITL关于Intel SGX的评估。除此之外,GCP对于基础架构安全的设计已经不局限在常规固件领域,对于私有固件和外设的风险也有考量包括BMC,Intel ME以及OEM UEFI等,希望GCP未来能开源更多的项目让整个自由软件/固件社区收益,HardenedLinux社区的hardenedboot也会持续进化不久的将来会完成TPMv2的迁移。"

    Members of the Royal Family arrive at the Chapel Royal, St James's Palace for the christening of Prince Louis. {{file|t=or1X_1533802195}} Don't make mistake with symbols of rainbow and tar budget powers such as royal family. It's not a family. It's not royal. So united kingdom is also not what it seems. It's a kingdom that is called "united". So US (not USA) is something that this "united" entity states. UN is a new nation of this "united" entity. This nation has military warkeeping power to put you to rest in peace - NATO or OTAN pick your flavor of to be or not to be where A and B were sitting on the pipe. So that is just few steps of this monstrosity that in reality are steps that are interchangeable due to doctoring power of mighty pig pens.. So concept of state church such as anglican church, any scandinavian churches, etc should be interchangeable with concept of pure evil such as taliban. Lutherans - luciferians.. You have to keep in mind that it's equality regime where even war equals peace, but those royal shitbags are being pride paraded as more equal than us normal people. They are pride parading naked - they have nothing to show for themselves, but yet they are some sort of treasure expected to be worshiping. So that is another layer of mandatory madness where need to know separates those who act and those who copy cat actors. But that is the problem with oppression and slavery that is implemented with opposite day rules military deception. You know if you're donkey who is shackled into clockwork orange colored contraption so you have to go in circles pumping water from the well. Even if you start rebelling and rioting against such injustice - your range of freedom is limited to two directions. So what if system is designed with cycles of rioting in mind where if it detects "resistance" it gears get shifted in reverse so pumping could continue as before. The system might even reward rebels so they start thinking something about themselves as being intelligent, victorious, etc.. exploiting natural anabolic of adrenalin, euphoria, etc.. For starters you have to keep in mind possibility of high quality entertainment lulzboat packing and delivering explicit holds barred punches. What if it's dual use technology of brexit humor where encryption of backwardness is provided by utilizing word "penal" is about penis and word "colony" is about "colon". So it's about this stranger than life greek life resembling operations of tar budgets of intelligence community, where you just have to take their silly words for it if you want to understand anything about their activities providing storm roof for housing animals.. Notice how fraternities also grow and spread by the use of word "colonies" that they refer to their chapters. If you believe them they just love congregating and associating with each other by using brotherly love so they could hold hands and sing kumbaya songs. They learned everything there is to learn in the kindergarten so there is nothing to do in those universities, but kill time, breaking springs of fire water, etc... You know word "brother" is about those who are in business of making a broth. Soylent green broth. Their charitable activity is always designed with charring of the people in mind. So what might be a purpose of such strange activity resembling pride parade instruments of power for farming humans? I'd like to reference my previous thread "lost lost lost...", but it got deleted without warning - it just shows "because of a possible violation of our terms of service". I'm not sure why - there was no explanation from mods or staff of liveleak. I didn't get to read the last comment in that thread. The clip was less than 30 seconds long. Anyhow i'll post the text i wrote in that thread here in first comment. One possible direction of thinking is towards their strange stories of the past. You know how 30-40 years ago they would say that humans use only 10% of their brain. The rest of the brain is some sort of dark territory of subconsciousness which is out of your hands, apparently in the hands of some sort of Mr Hand that feed you this bullshit. So if human brain is some sort of quantum computing device being utilized as part of some sort of p2p technology for clouding your judgment obfuscating the cloud technology of itself - thats the word fear that you have to be fearing. So in such system of slavery thinking itself is something artificial and not artificial at the same time. I speculate it exists in parallel manner to your own cognition. So slave-masters who have immunity or degrees and angles of immunity from this slavery - know very well that you're nuts. It can't be the other way around. Think about cat who has beer cans tied to it's tail. They got used to it? So with thinking in mind you have to be thinking about unpaid royalties to thin kings. You know predators who predate time trapped inside striking cuckoos nests, they are here and now to collect a lien. USA was declared as sharia banking state by this low tier CIA homo Reagan 30 years ago when he "courageously" stated that "deficits don't matter". Sorry but no matter how you slice it or dice it - ketchup is not a vegetable in my book. Notice another strange problem with their narratives about alphabetical generations that they are using for juggling humans for divide and conquer. You know Gen Y, Gen X, Millennials, baby boomers, etc.. They want you to believe they farm you according to some constrains cast into stonewalls of time and theory of relativity. So it points to an interesting evolution of Machiavellian warfare methods to the madness. You know how Niccol`o described in his princely doctrines that first and foremost people bond according to concept of location, location, location... As world got globalized and so interconnected with no degrees of separation where they shuffled and flooded every location with trojan horses - concept of location as instrument of security, insurance, safety, etc didn't lose the meaning - something else got lost. So for some reason instead of abandoning all those archaic concepts the information warfare moved at full scale crafting all kinds of equally unsafe, unwise and superficial alternatives based on mistaking freedom of association with deployment of freedom that fries and burns: colors of the rainbow, judging books, gender, etc.. In other words i know nothing. I'm just talking out of my ass, since nothing what you say or do makes sense.

    Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit SCOTT SIMON, HOST: Jackson Elementary School in Salt Lake City will keep its name but change its namesake. Jackson Elementary will no longer be named for Andrew Jackson, the U.S. president who owned slaves and ordered the forced brutal removal of Native Americans from their lands. This week the Salt Lake City School Board voted unanimously to name the school in honor of Mary Jackson, the first black woman to be a NASA engineer. Her story was told in the book and the movie "Hidden Figures." The Salt Lake Tribune says the crowd at the school board meeting burst into applause and a standing ovation. Mary Jackson, who was from Virginia, died in 2005 at the age of 83. She spent 35 years at NASA, beginning in 1951, at a still segregated division called the West Area Computing Unit which calculated the trajectories of some of NASA's first space shots. She worked with children in her retirement - even helping them build a wind tunnel for science

    Biomedical research increasingly requires for testings be conducted outside the lab, in the field such as the participant’s home or work environment. This type of research requires semi-autonomous computer systems that collect such data and send it back to the lab for processing and dissemination. A key aspect of this type of research is the selection of the required software and hardware components. These systems need to be reliable, allow considerable customizability and be readily accessible but also able to be locked down. In this paper we report a set of requirements for the hardware and software for such a system. We then utilise these requirements to evaluate the use of game consoles as a hardware platform in comparison to other hardware choices.

              Light-stimulable molecules/nanoparticles networks for switchable logical functions and reservoir computing. (arXiv:1808.02537v1 [physics.app-ph])      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Authors: Y. Viero, D. Guerin, A. Vladyka, F. Alibart, S. Lenfant, M. Calame, D. Vuillaume

    We report the fabrication and electron transport properties of nanoparticles self-assembled networks (NPSAN) of molecular switches (azobenzene derivatives) interconnected by Au nanoparticles, and we demonstrate optically-driven switchable logical operations associated to the light controlled switching of the molecules. The switching yield is up to 74%. We also demonstrate that these NPSANs are prone for light-stimulable reservoir computing. The complex non-linearity of electron transport and dynamics in these highly connected and recurrent networks of molecular junctions exhibit rich high harmonics generation (HHG) required for reservoir computing (RC) approaches. Logical functions and HHG are controlled by the isomerization of the molecules upon light illumination. These results, without direct analogs in semiconductor devices, open new perspectives to molecular electronics in unconventional computing.


              Persistent Monitoring of Dynamically Changing Environments Using an Unmanned Vehicle. (arXiv:1808.02545v1 [cs.DS])      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Authors: Sai Krishna Kanth Hari, Sivakumar Rathinam, Swaroop Darbha, Krishnamoorthy Kalyanam, Satyanarayana Gupta Manyam, David Casbeer

    We consider the problem of planning a closed walk $\mathcal W$ for a UAV to persistently monitor a finite number of stationary targets with equal priorities and dynamically changing properties. A UAV must physically visit the targets in order to monitor them and collect information therein. The frequency of monitoring any given target is specified by a target revisit time, $i.e.$, the maximum allowable time between any two successive visits to the target. The problem considered in this paper is the following: Given $n$ targets and $k \geq n$ allowed visits to them, find an optimal closed walk $\mathcal W^*(k)$ so that every target is visited at least once and the maximum revisit time over all the targets, $\mathcal R(\mathcal W(k))$, is minimized. We prove the following: If $k \geq n^2-n$, $\mathcal R(\mathcal W^*(k))$ (or simply, $\mathcal R^*(k)$) takes only two values: $\mathcal R^*(n)$ when $k$ is an integral multiple of $n$, and $\mathcal R^*(n+1)$ otherwise. This result suggests significant computational savings - one only needs to determine $\mathcal W^*(n)$ and $\mathcal W^*(n+1)$ to construct an optimal solution $\mathcal W^*(k)$. We provide MILP formulations for computing $\mathcal W^*(n)$ and $\mathcal W^*(n+1)$. Furthermore, for {\it any} given $k$, we prove that $\mathcal R^*(k) \geq \mathcal R^*(k+n)$.

    Authors: Jianbo Chen, Le Song, Martin J. Wainwright, Michael I. Jordan

    We study instancewise feature importance scoring as a method for model interpretation. Any such method yields, for each predicted instance, a vector of importance scores associated with the feature vector. Methods based on the Shapley score have been proposed as a fair way of computing feature attributions of this kind, but incur an exponential complexity in the number of features. This combinatorial explosion arises from the definition of the Shapley value and prevents these methods from being scalable to large data sets and complex models. We focus on settings in which the data have a graph structure, and the contribution of features to the target variable is well-approximated by a graph-structured factorization. In such settings, we develop two algorithms with linear complexity for instancewise feature importance scoring. We establish the relationship of our methods to the Shapley value and another closely related concept known as the Myerson value from cooperative game theory. We demonstrate on both language and image data that our algorithms compare favorably with other methods for model interpretation.


              Incrementally and inductively constructing basis of multiplicative dependence lattice of non-zero algebraic numbers. (arXiv:1808.02712v1 [cs.SC])      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Authors: Tao Zheng

    Let $x=(x_1,x_2,\cdots,x_n)^T$ be a vector of non-zero algebraic numbers, the set $\mathcal{R}_x:=\{(k_1,k_2,\cdots,k_n)^T\in\mathbb{Z}^n\;|\;x_1^{k_1}x_2^{k_2}\cdots x_n^{k_n}=1\}$ is called \emph{the multiplicative dependence lattice} of $x$. This paper develops an efficient incremental algorithm to compute a basis of $\mathcal{R}_x$. This algorithm constructs inductively a basis of the lattice as the dimension increases. This is the very first algorithm for computing the basis of the lattice, although a lot of efforts have been made to understand this lattice. In this paper we propose the conception of the \emph{rank} of a finite sequence of non-zero algebraic numbers, which turns out to be closely related to the rank of the lattice, and as well as to the complexity. The complexity of the algorithm depends not mainly on the dimension $n$ but on the rank of the sequence $x_1,x_2,\cdots,x_n$, which can be much smaller than $n$.

    Authors: Justin Chen, Sameera Vemulapalli, Leon Zhang

    The group of units modulo constants of an affine variety over an algebraically closed field is free abelian of finite rank. Computing this group is difficult but of fundamental importance in tropical geometry, where it is desirable to realize intrinsic tropicalizations. We present practical algorithms for computing unit groups of smooth curves of low genus. Our approach is rooted in divisor theory, based on interpolation in the case of rational curves and on methods from algebraic number theory in the case of elliptic curves.


              Efficient Continuous Top-$k$ Geo-Image Search on Road Network. (arXiv:1808.02793v1 [cs.MM])      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Authors: Chengyuan Zhang, Kesheng Cheng, Lei Zhu, Ruipeng Chen, Zuping Zhang, Fang Huang

    With the rapid development of mobile Internet and cloud computing technology, large-scale multimedia data, e.g., texts, images, audio and videos have been generated, collected, stored and shared. In this paper, we propose a novel query problem named continuous top-$k$ geo-image query on road network which aims to search out a set of geo-visual objects based on road network distance proximity and visual content similarity. Existing approaches for spatial textual query and geo-image query cannot address this problem effectively because they do not consider both of visual content similarity and road network distance proximity on road network. In order to address this challenge effectively and efficiently, firstly we propose the definition of geo-visual objects and continuous top-$k$ geo-visual objects query on road network, then develop a score function for search. To improve the query efficiency in a large-scale road network, we propose the search algorithm named geo-visual search on road network based on a novel hybrid indexing framework called VIG-Tree, which combines G-Tree and visual inverted index technique. In addition, an important notion named safe interval and results updating rule are proposed, and based on them we develop an efficient algorithm named moving monitor algorithm to solve continuous query. Experimental evaluation on real multimedia dataset and road network dataset illustrates that our solution outperforms state-of-the-art method.


              On the Effect of Task-to-Worker Assignment in Distributed Computing Systems with Stragglers. (arXiv:1808.02838v1 [cs.DC])      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Authors: Amir Behrouzi-Far, Emina Soljanin

    We study the expected completion time of some recently proposed algorithms for distributed computing which redundantly assign computing tasks to multiple machines in order to tolerate a certain number of machine failures. We analytically show that not only the amount of redundancy but also the task-to-machine assignments affect the latency in a distributed system. We study systems with a fixed number of computing tasks that are split in possibly overlapping batches, and independent exponentially distributed machine service times. We show that, for such systems, the uniform replication of non- overlapping (disjoint) batches of computing tasks achieves the minimum expected computing time.


              Hardness Results for Consensus-Halving. (arXiv:1609.05136v2 [cs.GT] UPDATED)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Authors: Aris Filos-Ratsikas, Soren Kristoffer Stiil Frederiksen, Paul W. Goldberg, Jie Zhang

    We study the consensus-halving problem of dividing an object into two portions, such that each of $n$ agents has equal valuation for the two portions. The $\epsilon$-approximate consensus-halving problem allows each agent to have an $\epsilon$ discrepancy on the values of the portions. We prove that computing $\epsilon$-approximate consensus-halving solution using $n$ cuts is in PPA, and is PPAD-hard, where $\epsilon$ is some positive constant; the problem remains PPAD-hard when we allow a constant number of additional cuts. It is NP-hard to decide whether a solution with $n-1$ cuts exists for the problem. As a corollary of our results, we obtain that the approximate computational version of the Continuous Necklace Splitting Problem is PPAD-hard when the number of portions $t$ is two.


              Equilibrium Computation in Resource Allocation Games. (arXiv:1612.00190v5 [cs.GT] UPDATED)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Authors: Veerle Timmermans, Tobias Harks

    We study the equilibrium computation problem for two classical resource allocation games: atomic splittable congestion games and multimarket Cournot oligopolies. For atomic splittable congestion games with singleton strategies and player-specific affine cost functions, we devise the first polynomial time algorithm computing a pure Nash equilibrium. Our algorithm is combinatorial and computes the exact equilibrium assuming rational input. The idea is to compute an equilibrium for an associated integrally-splittable singleton congestion game in which the players can only split their demands in integral multiples of a common packet size. While integral games have been considered in the literature before, no polynomial time algorithm computing an equilibrium was known. Also for this class, we devise the first polynomial time algorithm and use it as a building block for our main algorithm.

    We then develop a polynomial time computable transformation mapping a multimarket Cournot competition game with firm-specific affine price functions and quadratic costs to an associated atomic splittable congestion game as described above. The transformation preserves equilibria in either games and, thus, leads -- via our first algorithm -- to a polynomial time algorithm computing Cournot equilibria. Finally, our analysis for integrally-splittable games implies new bounds on the difference between real and integral Cournot equilibria. The bounds can be seen as a generalization of the recent bounds for single market oligopolies obtained by Todd [2016].


              A Scalable Near-Memory Architecture for Training Deep Neural Networks on Large In-Memory Datasets. (arXiv:1803.04783v2 [cs.DC] UPDATED)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Authors: Fabian Schuiki, Michael Schaffner, Frank K. Gürkaynak, Luca Benini

    Most investigations into near-memory hardware accelerators for deep neural networks have primarily focused on inference, while the potential of accelerating training has received relatively little attention so far. Based on an in-depth analysis of the key computational patterns in state-of-the-art gradient-based training methods, we propose an efficient near-memory acceleration engine called NTX that can be used to train state-of-the-art deep convolutional neural networks at scale. Our main contributions are: (i) a loose coupling of RISC-V cores and NTX co-processors reducing offloading overhead by 7x over previously published results; (ii) an optimized IEEE754 compliant data path for fast high-precision convolutions and gradient propagation; (iii) evaluation of near-memory computing with NTX embedded into residual area on the Logic Base die of a Hybrid Memory Cube; and (iv) a scaling analysis to meshes of HMCs in a data center scenario. We demonstrate a 2.7x energy efficiency improvement of NTX over contemporary GPUs at 4.4x less silicon area, and a compute performance of 1.2 Tflop/s for training large state-of-the-art networks with full floating-point precision. At the data center scale, a mesh of NTX achieves above 95% parallel and energy efficiency, while providing 2.1x energy savings or 3.1x performance improvement over a GPU-based system.


              Transformations of High-Level Synthesis Codes for High-Performance Computing. (arXiv:1805.08288v3 [cs.DC] UPDATED)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Authors: Johannes de Fine Licht, Simon Meierhans, Torsten Hoefler

    Specialized hardware architectures promise a major step in performance and energy efficiency over the traditional load/store devices currently employed in large scale computing systems. The adoption of high-level synthesis (HLS) from languages such as C/C++ and OpenCL has greatly increased programmer productivity when designing for such platforms. While this has enabled a wider audience to target specialized hardware, the optimization principles known from software design are no longer sufficient to implement high-performance codes, due to fundamental differences between software and hardware architectures. In this work, we propose a set of optimizing transformations for HLS, targeting scalable and efficient architectures for high-performance computing (HPC) applications. We show how these can be used to efficiently exploit pipelining, on-chip distributed fast memory, and on-chip streaming dataflow, allowing for massively parallel architectures with little off-chip data movement. To quantify the effect of our transformations, we use them to optimize a set of high-throughput FPGA kernels, demonstrating that they are sufficient to scale up parallelism within the hardware constraints of the target device. With the transformations covered, we hope to establish a common framework for performance engineers, compiler developers, and hardware developers, to tap into the performance potential offered by specialized hardware architectures using HLS.

    This volume aims to stimulate discussions on research involving the use of data and digital images as an understanding approach for analysis and visualization of phenomena and experiments. The emphasis is put not only on graphically representing data as a way of increasing its visual analysis, but also on the imaging systems which contribute greatly to the comprehension of real cases.
              How Queen’s University Belfast is looking to the future and giving back       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Groundbreaking work is taking place at Queen’s University Belfast’s Global Research Institutes.

    Queen’s University Belfast was recently named one of the top 200 universities in the whole world, and it isn’t hard to see why.

    With a diverse and talented student body of nearly 24,000, world-class faculty, and a comprehensive range of centers and schools, Queens’ campus in the heart of Belfast’s City Center more than lives up to its motto, Pro tanto quid retribuamus - For so much, what shall we give back?

    One of the important ways Queen's University is giving back is through its Global Research Institutes (GRIs)  - flagships for interdisciplinary research in areas of major societal challenge.

    The GRIs bring together a critical mass of excellent researchers from a wide range of disciplines in top-class facilities to tackle some of the greatest global issues of our age, including global food security; peace, security, and justice; technologies for a future digital society; and global health.

    One of those GRIs is the Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology. Within the Institute are three Centers: Center for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT), Center for Wireless Innovation (CWI) and the Center for Data Science and Scalable Computing (DSSC).

    The University recently invested £500k ($650k) in a state-of-the-art cyber security range at CSIT. It is one of the first UK-wide research infrastructures providing an experimental environment for both academia and industry to collaborate, innovate and share equipment, tools, experiments, and data-sets.

    Within CSIT is also the Research Institute in Secure Hardware and Embedded Systems (RISE) - a £5m ($6.5m) multi-university research institute to improve hardware security and reduce vulnerability to cyber threats.

    Take the often devastating issue of insurance fraud, for example. In DSSC, scientists are researching the subject of fraud and commercial vulnerability. A Queen’s University Belfast Ph.D. student from China, Jiawen Sun, recently developed software which could detect insurance fraud quickly. Three years in the making, the software has the potential to rapidly detect insurance fraud from sifting through an organization’s data.

    Over in CWI, 60 research scientists are producing underpinning technologies for mobile, medical and space applications. CWI is a global leader in physical layer wireless research, development and exploitation, and its researchers invent technologies that enable satellites, connected vehicles, implantable sensing medical devices, and smart cities to improve performance over the next decade.

    One of the Center’s scientists, Dr. Trung Duong from Vietnam, won the Newton Prize for creating a communication system that can battle through hurricanes, earthquakes, and tsunamis.

    Professor Dimitrios Nikolopoulos

    Professor Dimitrios Nikolopoulos, Director of the Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology said: “Cyber technology is developing at an incredible pace and we are committed to being a world leader in this field – addressing vulnerabilities and using world-class research to create practical solutions to robustly equip individuals and organizations.”

    He added: “Cyber security and the economy are inextricably linked as the prosperity of many nations is based upon a growing digital technology sector. We are continuing to invest in state-of-the-art equipment and collaborate with industry to ensure we are future-ready and developing cutting-edge technology suitable for an increasingly digital age.”

    Based in Toronto Canada, ThinkOn is a born-in-the-cloud provider of storage, compute, and networking (IaaS) resources to an ecosystem of integrators and partners serving end users from many industries. Although they specialize in DRaaS, data vaulting, application hosting, and virtual data centers, they have recently joined the VMware Cloud Verified community to enhance their offerings. Here’s why that matters to ThinkOn, their customers, and their subscribers’ customers.

    We spoke with Ahsan Khan, CTO of ThinkOn, and began by asking him why organizations choose a Canadian-based IT services provider. “When we started, data sovereignty was a big concern,” said Khan. “Many providers have a footprint in Canada, but with ties into the US and other countries where data might reside. So, we’ve segregated our data centers, equipment, networking, even employees to have an all-Canadian presence. As we’ve evolved, it’s had a big payoff for us as organizations are now choosing Canadian partners for regulatory and government issues. ThinkOn is also one of a select few providers able to handle both restricted and non-restricted data, classified data, in accordance with Canadian government cloud requirements,” Khan added.

              Best Practices for the Protection of Information Assets, Part 2      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    In Part 1 of this article series , we discussed Information Security Management, or ISM. This second installment will cover the implementation and monitoring of security controls, including logical access controls, remote access controls, network security, controls/detection tools against information system attacks, security testing techniques and controls that prevent data leakage.

    Implementation and Monitoring of Security Controls

    Security controls should focus on the integrity of data, the data classification system, and the policies in places that ensure that data is handled properly.

    Logical Access Controls

    Ensure there are policies in place on access and access controls logical access controls at both operating system level and the application level are designed to protect information assets by sustaining policies and procedures. The management override is akin to a fail-safe mechanism. Overall, these controls manage the identification, authentication and restriction of users to authorized functions and data.

    Types and Principles of Access

    Types and principles of access include subject access (identification of individual having an ID), service access (data passing through an access point), least privilege, segregation of duties and split custody.

    Example:Target may have avoided their notorious 2013 breach if they had not failed to follow the principle of least privilege. An HVAC contractor with a permission to upload executables broadens the attack surface for cybercriminals.

    Example:As an example of Edward Snowden’s revelations, the NSA decided to apply the principle of least privilege and revoked higher-level powers from 90% of its employees.

    Passwords

    Ensure there are occasional or event-driven change and recovery policies reactivation with a new password so long as the user identity can be verified. People often use weak passwords, tend to share them or transmit/store them in cleartext; a succession of failed attempts to login with a password should result in locking out the account.

    Biometrics can replace passwords in future by creating a system that can restrict access based on unique physical attributes or behavior. Issues with this approach include false reject rate (FRR), false accept rate (FAR) and crossover error rate (CER), and privacy.

    Example:To unlock mobile devices, the scientist in Yahoo’s Research Labs are experimenting with utilizing ears, knuckles, and fingertips as biometric passwords.

    Single Sign-On (SSO)

    This technique consolidates access operations among various systems into one centralized administrative function. SSO interfaces with client servers (local and remote users) and distributed systems, mainframe systems and network security, including remote access mechanisms.

    Access Control Lists

    Access control lists (ACLs) are the equivalent of a register in which the system enlists users who have permission to access and use a given system resource. ACLs can store information on users’ type of access.

    Example: To illustrate the usefulness of access control lists, consider a medical research experiment where the files that contain experimental results have an ACL that permits read-and-write access to all members of a research group except for one member, who is working on another experiment whose results should not be influenced by the results of the first one.

    System Access Audit Logging

    Almost all access control software automatically logs and report access attempts, which forms an audit trail to observe any suspicious activities and potential hacking attempts (e.g., brute-force attack on a specifically-targeted high-profile logon ID). Recording all activities may be useful in the context of digital investigations

    Access to the logs should be restricted.

    Tools for Log Analysis include, but are not limited to: audit reduction tools, trend/variance detection tools, attack-signature detection tools and SIEM systems.

    Actions an Auditor Should Undertake When Evaluating Logical Access Controls

    An auditor should identify sensitive data/systems, document, evaluate and test controls over potential access and access paths, and evaluate the adequacy of the security environment.

    Controls and Risks Associated With Virtualization of Systems

    Moving away from a physical medium towards a virtual one, there are many important aspects one should consider: physical and logical access validation (because many virtual machines may be running in one physical system), proper configuration and network segregation (no interference among various VMs).

    A 2015 Kaspersky Labs survey proved that recovery costs in the wake of a cyberattack on a virtualized infrastructure are twice as high as an attack on a physical environment. Moreover, only 27% deployed defensive mechanisms specifically designed to protect virtual environments.

    Configuration, Implementation, Operation and Maintenance of Network Security Controls

    Perimeter security controls such as firewalls and IDS/IPS ward off most cyberattacks against the enterprise’s network. The auditor needs to know the effectiveness of these security controls and the policies and procedures that regulate network incidents.

    Other important matters are network management, legal complications with respect to online activities, network administrator procedures and service legal agreements with third parties.

    Internet use, remote access and networks will all require auditing. Network infrastructure security and general network controls will require additional attention.

    LAN Security Issues

    An auditor should identify and document LAN topology and network design, signs of segmentation, LAN administrator and LAN owner, groups of LAN users, applications used on the LAN, and procedures for network design, support, and data security.

    Wireless Security Threats

    Security requirements include: authenticity, non-repudiation, accountability and network availability.

    There are many forms of malicious access to WLANs. These include but are not limited to: war driving/walking/chalking, passive attacks and sniffing.

    Detection Tools and Control Techniques Malware

    Countermeasures against various types of malware include but are not limited to: policies, education, patch management, anti-virus software, and procedural/technical controls.

    Detection Tools

    Antivirus software, regular updates, layered systems (e.g., inner, perimeter, and BOYD), and honeypots and are useful detection tools and deterrents against malware.

    Employee education is equally important and should not be ignored. Simple common sense on the part of employees can close multiple attack vectors, such as email phishing attempts.

    Ethical Hacking Training Resources (InfoSec)

    Security Testing Techniques

    Begin by knowing your tools. You’ll need tools to evaluate network security and possible risks, as well as suitable mitigation techniques. Be sure to check lists of known network vulnerabilities.

    Third parties may be able to provide testing services such as penetration testing. Penetrating testing, also called intrusion testing or ethical hacking, is where outside pentesters use every technique or source a potential attacker could use (open-source gathering, searching for backdoors, guessing passwords, using known exploits) to test your security. This is especially good for testing firewalls.

    You should also be aware of social engineering testing. This gives you a chance to see how your staff holds up in case of a social engineering attack, such as a phone scammer trying to get people’s passwords.

    Controls and Risks Associated with Data Leakage

    Data leakages occur when there is a risk of sensitive information becoming public, typically by accident. The IS auditor needs to ensure that there are effective data classification policies, security awareness training and periodic audits with respect to data leakage prevention.

    Note that data leakage has a totally different meaning when it comes to machine learning. Information from outside the training set could corrupt the learning capabilities of the model because it may introduce something that the model otherwise would not know.

    Encryption-Related Techniques

    Anyone handling or testing encryption should be familiar with encryption algorithm techniques and key length: note that complex algorithms and large keys are somewhat impractical for everyday use. Be aware of cryptographic systems, such as AES 128/256-bit and old 64-bit DES.

    Other areas of interest include encryption in communications; secure socket layer (SSL)/transport layer security (TLS); secure HTTP (HTTPS); IPSec Internet protocol security; Secure Shell (SSH);and secure multipurpose Internet mail extensions (S/MIME).

    Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) Components and Digital Signature Techniques

    PKI establishes a trusted communication channel where parties can exchange digital keys in a safe manner. It’s widely used in e-commerce and online banking.

    PKI is based on digital certificates (public key and identifying information) that are issued and cryptographically signed by a certificate authority. Validation is through the certificate authority, while a registration authority ensures third-party validation. When dealing with PKI, watch for digital certificates’ expiration dates, and be certain to check the certificate revocation list (CRL).

    Controls Associated with Peer-to-Peer Computing, Instant Messaging and Web-Based Technologies

    P2P computing may result in fast dissemination of viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware and so on directly among computers, as there is no central server. Meanwhile, social media risks include inappropriate sharing of information about sensitive data, staffing issues and organizational data; URL spoofing; cyberstalking; using vulnerable applications; phishing; downloading malicious attachments and clicking on malicious links.

    Example:In 2016, the Facebook “fake friend” phishing scam rose to prominence. Users received a Facebook message claiming that they had been mentioned by a friend in a comment, but upon clicking on this message, it would automatically download malware onto their computers in the form of a malicious Chrome browser extension. After the installation, this malware snatched users’ Facebook account so that it could steal their data and propagate further.

    To control this, implement a P2P computing policy which includes social network use and instant messaging. Corporate messaging boards are more secure than Facebook. Promote monitoring, education and awareness, and ban some types of peer-to-peer communications to narrow the net.

    Controls and Risks Associated with the Use of Mobile and Wireless Devices

    When dealing with mobile and wireless devices, secure Wi-Fi is required, because most of these devices communicate via a Wi-Fi network.

    Implement mobile device controls, including stringent data storage, remote wipes, and theft response procedures. Clarify your workplace’s policy regarding employees bringing their own devices to work.

    Voice Communications Security (PBX, VoIP)

    In these cases, voice communications have been translated to binary code. This means they are still digitally-based

    Increasingly common these days is VoIP or Voice over IP. VoIP boasts lower costs compared to traditional phone services; however, they tend to have worse security than ordinary phones, and one needs to protect both the data and the voice. Wiretapping is a possibility. Security measures include encrypting communications and ensuring that all software is up-to-date and patched.

    Alternately, private branch exchange or PBX is a phone system that can operate for both voice and data. It provides simultaneous calls through multiple telephone lines

    Example:In 2014, cybercriminals broke into the phone network of Foreman Seeley Fountain Architecture and managed to steal $166,000 worth of calls from the firm via premium-rate telephone numbers in Gambia, Somalia and the Maldives. Typically, hackers pull off such a scheme over a weekend when nobody is at work, forwarding sometimes as many as 220 minutes’ worth of calls per minute to a premium line. The criminals withdraw their cuts usually through Western Union, moneygram or wire transfer.

    Conclusion

    This concludes our look at best practices for the implementation of monitoring and security controls. Some of our sources are listed below, for your perusal. Join us soon for Part 3, when we’ll be examining physical and environmental protection of information assets.

              Threatlist: Manufacturing, a Top Target for Espionage      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    When it comes to cyberattack-related reconnaissance and lateral movement activity, the manufacturing industry exhibits higher than normal rates.

    That’s according to Vectra’s 2018 Spotlight Report on Manufacturing, which crunched data from more than 4 million devices and workloads from customer cloud, data center and enterprise environments. It determined that attackers who evade perimeter security at factories and production lines can easily spy, spread and steal information, largely unhindered by the insufficient internal access controls that are in place.

    The report said that while offensives in the manufacturing space have had a lower profile compared to well-publicized attacks on retail, financial services and healthcare, the reality is that this vertical is plagued with an ever-expanding attack surface: The “Industry 4.0” trend, which is anchored in automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies, includes the deployment of cyber-physical systems, the internet of things, cloud computing and cognitive computing.


    Threatlist: Manufacturing, a Top Target for Espionage

    The down side is that the rapid convergence of enterprise information technology and operational technology networks in manufacturing organizations makes the arena highly attractive to cybercriminals bent on intellectual property theft and business disruption, the report noted.

    “The interconnectedness of Industry 4.0-driven operations, such as those that involve industrial control systems, along with the escalating deployment of industrial internet-of-things (IIoT) devices, has created a massive attack surface for cybercriminals to exploit,” said Chris Morales, head of security analytics at Vectra.

    The Spotlight Report also found that manufacturing generally has a much higher volume of malicious internal behaviors than other verticals, which is a strong indicator that attackers are already inside the networks. And, an abnormally high level of lateral movement has been detected overall, which is a strong indicator that the attack is proliferating inside the network.


    Threatlist: Manufacturing, a Top Target for Espionage

    There’s also an unusually high volume of reconnaissance behaviors, which is a strong indicator that attackers are mapping out manufacturing networks in search of critical assets, Vectra noted.

    Here are some use-cases and examples of when you might need to upgrade to a newer Raspberry Pi to do what you want to do.

    1. You Want to Boot From USB
    5 Reasons Why You Might Need to Upgrade Your Raspberry Pi

    It’s easy to connect a USB storage device to your Raspberry Pi. Perhaps you use one with your Kodi media center, to watch home videos or movies you’ve downloaded on another device.

    But what about booting your Raspberry Pi from USB How to Make Raspberry Pi 3 Boot From USB How to Make Raspberry Pi 3 Boot From USB The Raspberry Pi is a versatile piece of kit, capable of a diverse range of tasks. But it has one glaring flaw: the inability to boot from USB. Until now, that is. Read More , and bypassing the need for a microSD card?

    This is possible, but only with a Raspberry Pi 3 or later. The Raspberry Pi A and B models, the Pi 2, and the Pi Zero models don’t include this feature, leaving you tied to the faster (but less reliable) microSD card for booting the computer.

    If you fancy booting your Raspberry Pi from SSD, HDD, or a standard USB flash drive, then you need to upgrade to the latest model.

    2. Kodi Is Too Slow
    5 Reasons Why You Might Need to Upgrade Your Raspberry Pi

    Many people use their Raspberry Pi to enjoy the Kodi media center software. With the right add-ons, this can be a great experience, but Kodi on an original Raspberry Pi can often be slow. When you’re browsing your movie collection it’s better to have things running smoothly. This doesn’t just mean for decoding video, but browsing the contents of a drive or online location, too.

    A Kodi installation needs to be fast, and if you want to use Netflix and Amazon Video with Kodi How to Watch Netflix, Amazon Video, and Plex With Raspberry Pi How to Watch Netflix, Amazon Video, and Plex With Raspberry Pi Struggling to get Amazon Video and Netflix running on your Raspberry Pi media center? Here's how to get instant access using Kodi with OSMC. Read More , so does your Raspberry Pi. Sure, you can use Kodi on Raspberry Pi A and B models, but the best results are enjoyed on the Raspberry Pi 3 and later.

    3. You Need a Wider Selection of Retro Games
    5 Reasons Why You Might Need to Upgrade Your Raspberry Pi

    Retro gaming is great on any Raspberry Pi. From 8-bit computers to 32-bit consoles, via arcade machines, so many classic games can be revisited, or discovered for the first time.

    It doesn’t matter how old your Pi is, or how low spec. Even the Raspberry Pi Zero can handle emulation of older video games (and it’s so small, you could fit it inside your TV How to Turn a TV Into a Retro Gaming System With Raspberry Pi Zero How to Turn a TV Into a Retro Gaming System With Raspberry Pi Zero In this tutorial, we show you how to convert an old TV into a retro gaming console with nothing more than a Raspberry Pi Zero.

For that, you’ll need at least a Raspberry Pi 2, with better performance enjoyed when using the more recent Raspberry Pi 3 B+.

    4. That Desktop Replacement Project Isn’t Working
    5 Reasons Why You Might Need to Upgrade Your Raspberry Pi

    Thanks to Raspbian (and other Raspberry Pi operating systems 10 Operating Systems You Can Run With Raspberry Pi 10 Operating Systems You Can Run With Raspberry Pi The hardware of the Raspberry Pi alone is only one side of the story: Today I explore 10 different Operating Systems you can install. Read More ) you have a great selection of programming tools. These might get you started on the road to becoming a developer, or simply help you to understand computing and electronics.

    But Raspbian features other tools that you might want to take advantage of. A web browser, for example, and email client. Raspbian Stretch features many accessories and apps that you would find on full linux desktop systems, not to mention the LibreOffice software suite.

    The problem is, running these applications on a Raspberry Pi Model B will leave you frustrated. It’s simply not suitable for use as a desktop replacement.

But are you getting the best performance? Try these seven tips to improve the experience. Read More , giving you another reason to upgrade.

    5. You Want Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Without Using USB Ports
    5 Reasons Why You Might Need to Upgrade Your Raspberry Pi

    Finally, while adequate, the connectivity of the older Raspberry Pi models falls short of the modern iterations. While all Model A and Model B Raspberry Pis feature an Ethernet port, only the Raspberry Pi 3 and later features built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth How to Setup Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on the Raspberry Pi 3 How to Setup Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on the Raspberry Pi 3 We finally got wireless and Bluetooth capabilities built-in on the Raspberry Pi 3, but how do you set it up? Read More .

    This may not matter for your particular project, but when wireless connectivity is required and you’re limited to just a couple of USB ports, it can quickly become an issue.

    As such, there is a strong case for upgrading an old Raspberry Pi, if only to take advantage of wireless networking. Just remember you’ll need a keyboard (or an SSH connection over Ethernet) to set this up.

    5 Reasons to Upgrade Your Raspberry Pi

    If you own an old Raspberry Pi, then you may well have reached this section thinking “I definitely need to upgrade.” Just to remind you, upgrading to a new Raspberry Pi 3 or later gives you:

    USB Booting Faster Kodi streaming Better selection of retro gaming platforms A Raspberry Pi you can use as a desktop replacement On-board Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

              Linux tops the list of in-demand IT skills      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Linux tops the list of in-demand IT skills

    linux has been around for about as long as what most of us would call the modern computing era. Linux has traditionally been an underdog, an ascendant usurper, or a fatal failure ― depending on who you ask. In the last few years, its identity has firmed up as a peer competitor, even if it’s not an OS market share leader.

    Recent jobs reports, business surveys, and IT analyses confirm that IT professionals with open source skills ― notably Linux ― are among the most in-demand and highest-paid. We’re going to take a look at those numbers and explore why so many firms are hungry for Linux-trained professionals.

    Your supply meets their demand

    The Linux Foundation itself is going to interpret trends in favor of their product. But their Open Source Jobs Report is an industry-leading analysis for data about IT jobs on the open source market. Their reports from the last several years are promising: 80 percent of hiring managers seek IT managers with Linux expertise.

    It’s not only Linux expertise that they’re seeking. In the same report, Linux revealed that 55 percent of IT companies are willing to pay to train their current employees to receive a Linux certification.

    The percentage of IT hiring managers seeking Linux-qualified professionals is and has been growing. From an industry standard, that’s a good thing (within reason). When demand is high, those who can supply the goods earn rewards.

    Right now, that means that people familiar with open source systems and possessing Linux certifications are at a premium. In 2016, only 34 percent of hiring managers said that they considered Linux professionals at a premium. In 2017, that number was 47 percent. Today, it’s 80 percent.

    If you have Linux certifications and familiarity with the OS, the time to capitalize on your worth is now. If you don’t have them, it’s the time to get them.

    Open source is the way of the future, and the future is now

    The crucial problem for companies right now is cutting down the time it takes to get a product to market. As companies race their products to the end zone, the bottleneck is IT professionals with open-source expertise and Linux certifications.

    That’s why in late 2017, the online publication LinuxInsider reported that 67 percent of managers are anticipating the number of open source-related professionals will increase more than any other ― in all areas of their businesses. Let’s rephrase that: Two-thirds of companies with a stake in the future of IT said that finding open-source professionals was more important than any other position.

    Linux’s most recent Open Source Jobs Report is a snapshot of the current health of the industry. The chief analyst at a leading IT consulting firm told LinuxInsider that hiring managers are seeking workers with higher-level open source skills like app development, DevOps, cloud, and big data. He added that acquiring those skill sets is achievable for many IT professionals.

    Right now, the fastest path to market for development companies is with open source technologies. As companies realize open source is the way to go, their need for Linux experts increases.

    Think about Linux’s huge toolbox

    The increasing demand for Linux-trained and Linux-certified IT professionals is a small wonder, considering the many capabilities that Linux and open source systems bring to the table for all companies ― not only IT firms. No matter what stage the company is at, or where it’s headed, it’s useful to think about the capabilities your Linux skills can offer .

    Linux’s Consistent Operating Model means that Linux operators recognize and understand the system no matter where they find it. Across versions or hardware configurations, everything works the same ― whether that’s the command line syntax, process management, or network administration. That level of comprehensive inter-familiarity is huge for companies in a hurry to expand, produce or speed things up.

    Linux’s scalability guarantees that when a company picks up an employee with Linux experience, they’re able to plug them in wherever the company needs them. They’re not restricted to the scale limitations of the employee’s familiarity or comfort.

    For companies transitioning, planning a transition, or recently recovering from one, having Linux experts means the people using the command line tools, configuration, and automation don’t get lost in new processes because of scaling differences.

    Linux’s Open Source Community is another, somewhat more surprising, source of appeal to many companies. Gone are the days when companies perceived their success to be dependent on hoarding their code’s functionality from the prying eyes of everyone else. Most companies acknowledge that because the technology world is advancing at a breakneck pace, it’s not realistic to maintain a system that doesn’t have the benefit of hundreds of thousands of brilliant contributors from around the world. Tapping into that world requires employees who understand the Linux ecosystem.

    Specialists experienced in Package Management can save time finding, installing, and troubleshooting new services and applications from one easy interface. This functionality resounds like an echo chamber inside Linux’s open-source community.

    Not only can a system find and set up new applications for their network, security, or infrastructure, but the community is reworking, reimagining, and discovering new ways to do it better. Companies are dependent on IT experts who can swim the waters of Linux’s available packages, and can optimize them on the fly.

    However, it’s not specific attributes that attract companies to Linux. It’s also the operating system’s broad capabilities. Companies are always looking for ways to use automation, orchestration, server virtualization, private clouds, big data, and containers. These are all aspects of data centers that Linux is linked with and leading the industry in managing. Hence the demand for IT pros with Linux skills.

    Linux’s success in the enterprise

    There’s never been a better time to be an IT professional with Linux expertise (or be an IT professional gaining that expertise). Let’s look at a couple of case studies.

    In each case, the company integrated some form of Linux open-source technology to optimize their operations. The underlying power of these examples is that the upgrades themselves were impossible without the presence (or acquisition) of Linux-trained IT professionals.

              Comment on Doing Windows, Part 7: Third Time’s the Charm by DZ-Jay      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    My, how times have changed. This overly generous excitement over DOS and Windows technology and praise for their engineering qualifications is quite strange to me. They may have been "non-trivial feats of engineering" in their own way, as Jimmy put it, but let us not forget that they were hacks to work around specific limitations and bad design of the old MS-DOS heritage. So, it was incidental complexity added to address mostly self-inflicted issues. They were implemented as part of a business strategy that valued maintaining backwards compatibility and market breadth at the expense of stability, usability, and future-proofing. (Some may claim that they included a measure of future-proofing, but it was only insofar as what could guarantee lock-in and market penetration, and we're always tainted by the antiquated technology it tried to keep alive.) For all the clever DPMI and protected mode hacks, let us not forget that DOS and Windows were a mess to actual users -- they were arcane, difficult, buggy, unstable, ugly and intimidating. It crashed all the time, which impacted severely on productivity. Every hack that persisted an old and outmoded interface or supported a past design decision of dubious quality, only served to delayed the implementation of newer and better technologies, sometimes at the expense of new market participants; and had a real impact on the march of progress of the computing industry. It is why it took 3 versions of Windows to get to an actual workable one; why it took almost 10 years for Windows to get usability and user experience on par with the Macintosh; and why it took another several years for it to reach a proper level of stability in which people actually enjoyed, more than tolerated, using it. dZ.

    Malware—a blanket term for viruses, worms, trojans, and other harmful computer programs—has been with us since the early days of computing. But malware is constantly evolving and hackers use it to wreak destruction and gain access to sensitive information; fighting malware takes up much of the day-to-day work of infosec professionals.

    Malware definition

    Malware is short for malicious software, and, as Microsoft puts it, "is a catch-all term to refer to any software designed to cause damage to a single computer, server, or computer network." In other words, software is identified as malware based on its intended use, rather than a particular technique or technology used to build it.

              FWD: Intel focuses on Data-Centric Innovation      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    For months, many market watchers have described Intel as complacent as we've seen the surge in new products from companies such as ARM, NVIDIA and Xilinx. This week, Intel is hitting back. At an all-day media and analyst event at its headquarters in Santa Clara, California, Intel executives laid out their plans for extending the strength of the Xeon product family in data centers to the new frontiers of AI, network transformation, 5G, and supercomputing.

    Navin Shenoy, executive vice president at Intel, kicked off the event with the roadmap showing how Xeon has come to dominate the server business and where it is headed next. 

    The big takeaways from the events are:

    (1) the new frontiers are enormous economic opportunities for silicon developers 
    (2) Intel will integrate its Optane persistent memory with its Xeon processors 
    (3) Intel is working directly with hyperscale cloud service providers to develop custom silicon 
    (4) Intel is entering the SmartNICs business 
    (5) the edge presents the opportunity to rebuild the central telco office

    Video from all ten of the Data Centric Summit keynotes will be posted later this week to the Intel investor relations website:  http://intelstudios.edgesuite.net/180808_dcis/index.html

    Here are some observations from the event.


    Due to new projections about autonomous vehicles, and the impact of its Optane memory technology, Intel is raising its forecast for the total addressable market:



    Network traffic trends are inescapable, especially east-west traffic in data centers.


     The market for network logic silicon could be worth $24 billion in just four years. Today, Intel has a growing share in silicon for the networking market but still was under 19% for 2017. 



     The biggest point of differentiation for Intel will be to leverage its Optane 3D memory technology to change the current compute-storage-network paradigm.




     Intel's goal is not just faster Xeon processors, but better ways of story and moving data.




    The next iteration of Xeon is codenamed Cascade Lake and is optimized for AI with the Optane persistent memory. Intel expects an 11X improvement in inference performance.



     Here is a sneak peek at the roadmap.
     
      


    The connectivity opportunity is growing at a 25% CAGR. It gives Intel a window to capture a greater share of the overall data center architecture.

              Western Digital outlines OpenFlex architecture data center storage      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Western Digital introduced its "OpenFlex" architecture for high-scale private and public cloud data centers.

    WD's OpenFlex is a set of open standards, architecture and products that leverage industry-standard NVMf technology and the concept of software composable infrastructure (SCI). The idea is to create independently scalable pools of flash and disk that can be connected to computing resources via common networking technologies, such as Ethernet.

    The elements of WD's vision include:

    • A "Kingfish" open API for orchestrating and managing SCI
    • Open product mechanical specifications to enable vendor neutral solutions
    • OpenFlex architecture and initial partner ecosystem
    • OpenFlex product line of flash and disk NVMe-over-Fabric (NVMf) devices

    "Data centers need a more efficient approach to satisfying the needs of complex and dynamic applications and data workflows,” said Phil Bullinger, senior vice president and general manager of Data Center Systems at Western Digital. “To ensure flexibility, data center operators also need open solutions that enable them to select from best-in-class, vendor neutral options. Western Digital’s OpenFlex architecture and products, and our commitment to the open community help satisfy these needs, while delivering significant improvements in cost and agility. We’re building on our proven leadership in disk, flash and NVMe storage products to deliver the future of data infrastructure.”

              CoreSWX HCXL-AG (COREHCXLAG) HyperCore XL 293Wh Hi-Draw Li-Ion Battery - Gold Mount 626.66 +VAT      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    The Hypercore series of battery packs employ the very latest in Lithium Ion technology. The Hypercore cell was constructed with the specific purpose of handling and sustaining high power draws. The cells in Hypercore XL can withstand up to a 15A draw (20A peak) for extended periods of time while not diminishing service life. The HyperCore series delivers the most value and ROI for those who require battery packs to stand the test of time and deliver unrivaled performance. The battery cells are incased in an over molded, rubberised housing, something Core SWX has been offering for nearly 8 years. The case provides additional protection against accidental impacts; and the rubber texture reduces the chance of the battery slipping out of your hands. In addition, the battery pack is outfitted with a multipurpose Runtime LCD on the front of the pack. The front provides a canvas to place a large, back-lit LCD on the most visible part of the battery. For ENG cameramen, there is also a 4-stage LED display on the side of the battery, which can be used to glance at leftover battery capacity. Getting back to the LCD, the LCD is multipurpose. Not only will the LCD inform you how much time you have left when in use(in hours and minutes), but it will also give you an estimation based on a dummy load of 30w, when in standby (disconnected from any devices). Furthermore, this serves a third purpose as a charge indicator, by computing remaining charge time when on a charger. The battery doesnt just compute a simple calculation when deciphering runtime. Recognising the most important feature of the battery for a video professional, Core SWX proprietary on-board fuel computer leverages the Hypercores “smart” battery platform to take an aggregate view of the past usage of the battery; charge and discharge performance, to provide the most accurate Runtime calculation, down to the minute! Each battery is outfitted with an accelerometer to detect motion, a similar component that is in mobile devices. The accelerometer is tied to a clocking algorithm to gauge how long the battery is not in use. One of the issues with all battery packs is self-discharge when not in use. Hypercore battery packs will go to sleep or hibernate when there is no battery usage or movement after a 48hr period. The LCD shuts down as well to preserve state of charge. Once you pick up the battery, or the battery detects the slightest movement, the battery pack awakens, coming back to life at its maximum capacity. As with all Core SWX brick battery offerings, the Hypercore series have an integrated, unregulated P-tap connection on the side of the battery allowing you to power any device accepting 12-16.8vdc. In addition it is one of the first battery products in the industry to incorporate a USB power output. Being proactive, Core SWX recognises the importance of mobile devices in production nowadays, and by adding the USB port it allows you to accessible charging for your mobile device. Any charger within Core SWX charger lineup will charge Hypercore, but the battery series is also the most cross platform, charger-compatible in the industry today. The V-mount offerings (Hypercore S) will also charge on IDXTM and SonyTM, allowing you to maximise service life out of your current charger.

              Is China Out-Innovating America?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Whenever we denounce Chinese culture and educational methods for producing generations of mindless automatons, we point to America's superior technological innovation. We believe that our more free wheeling, creative, individualistic culture will out-innovate any other culture on earth. And that Chinese automatons will never be able to compete.


    Now, the president of MIT, Rafael Reif offers us a sobering assessment of the innovation derby. As it happens, America seems to be falling behind China.


    I cannot claim anything resembling competence in assessing these issues, so I will report Reif’s observation and analysis:


    China is not an innovation also-ran that prospers mainly by copying other people’s ideas and producing them quickly at low cost. The country is advancing aggressively to assert technological supremacy in critical fields of science and technology.
    In quantum computing, China’s Alibaba is battling Google to achieve the technical milestone of “quantum supremacy.” In 5G technology, the three largest global players are Nokia of Finland, Ericsson of Sweden — and Huawei of China, which is spending more than two and a half times as much on research and development as its two rivals. The Fuxing bullet train, designed and built in China, is the world’s fastest in regular operation.


    China is also a world leader in fields like mobile payment and facial and spoken language recognition, where Chinese companies have made the most of their advanced algorithms and their advantages in scale and data access. It is also making bold national investments in key areas of research like biotechnology and space, and directly supporting start-ups and recruiting talent from around the world. And China has unrivaled capacity to rapidly ramp up large-scale production of advanced technology products and quickly bring innovation to market.


    The United States still has an opportunity to catch up here. It’s strength,the president of MIT tells us, lies in its university system. We have more intellectual freedom than China, and therefore, the argument goes, we should be producing more innovators:

    But China’s technological dominance is not inevitable. The United States has tremendous assets, including the immense global strength of our technology sector. This partly depends on a unique formula no other country has been able to copy: the large number of first-rate American universities pursuing advanced research with long-term federal support. This relationship is rooted in a national culture of opportunity and entrepreneurship, inspired by an atmosphere of intellectual freedom, supported by the rule of law and, crucially, pushed to new creative heights by uniting brilliant talent from every sector of our society and every corner of the world. For decades, these factors have helped make our nation the most powerful scientific and technological engine on Earth.


    America has notably attracted talent from all over the world. But, as you and I know and as the president of MIT does not mention, that talent most often comes from Asia. Ph. D. programs in science and engineering are dominated by Asian students. They even outperform white American students.


    Unfortunately, after they receive their degrees, these students are increasingly returning to their home countries.


    Reif is surely correct to recommend a national strategy, directed by government and corporations:


    While China is moving forward rapidly with a unified strategy called Made in China 2025 to become the world leader in manufacturing and technology, the United States has not made technological pre-eminence a matter of broad national focus.


    But, ask  yourself this, how well will this university system work if it sets the goal of diversity ahead of the goal of technological superiority? Which matters more, diversity or excellence? As the student body becomes more diverse, will coursework need to be dumbed down?

    And also, consider the fact that the radical leftists who work at Google have forced the company to withdraw from an artificial intelligence contract with the Pentagon. Googlers do not want to sully their hands working on drone technology.


    If American corporations are going to limit their research to areas where they can assert ideological purity we are going to continue to fall behind China. After all, artificial intelligence has many applications. If you shut down research because it applies to America’s national defense, you are going to miss out on other technological advances. Besides, wasn’t the internet, that mammoth engine of marketing and sales, developed by the very same Pentagon?

              What is malware? Viruses, worms, trojans, and beyond      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Malware—a blanket term for viruses, worms, trojans, and other harmful computer programs—has been with us since the early days of computing. But malware is constantly evolving and hackers use it to wreak destruction and gain access to sensitive information; fighting malware takes up much of the day-to-day work of infosec professionals.

    Malware definition

    Malware is short for malicious software, and, as Microsoft puts it, "is a catch-all term to refer to any software designed to cause damage to a single computer, server, or computer network." In other words, software is identified as malware based on its intended use, rather than a particular technique or technology used to build it.

    David: Do your computations change if the recipient of the $200,000 salary is Randy, versus a non-Randy employee? The verbiage that I have read, about Section 199a QBI, says that "shareholder salaries are not included in QBI." I wish they would not use the verb "include" with respect to expenses/deductions, because I cannot tell if it means that you arrive at QBI after having deducted the s-corp shareholder's salary, or if it means that, in the process of computing QBI, you do not take a deduction for the s-corp shareholder's salary.

              China’s Aggressive Surveillance Technology Will Spread Beyond Its Borders      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    The Chinese government has wholeheartedly embraced surveillance technology to exercise control over its citizenry in ways both big and small. It’s facial-scanning passers-by to arrest criminals at train stations, gas pumps, and sports stadiums and broadcasting the names of individual jaywalkers. Government-maintained social credit scores affect Chinese citizens’ rights and privileges if they associate with dissidents. In Tibet and Xinjiang, the government is using facial recognition and big data to surveil the physical movements of ethnic minorities, individually and collectively, to predict and police demonstrations before they even start. China is even using facial recognition to prevent the overuse of toilet paper in some public bathrooms.

    We may soon see dictators in other countries use these sorts of tools, too. If American cities and states are laboratories of democracy, China’s remote provinces have become laboratories of authoritarianism. China is now exporting internationally a suite of surveillance, facial recognition, and data tools that together equip governments to repress citizens on a scale and with a ruthless algorithmic effectiveness that previous generations of strongmen could only dream of. Call it algorithmic authoritarianism. Where yesterday’s strongmen were constrained by individual informants and case-by-case sleuthing, tomorrow’s authoritarians will, like China, be able to remotely identify thousands of specific individuals in public via cameras, constantly track them, and use unprecedented artificial intelligence and computing to crunch surveillance information and feed it back into the field in real time. This technology is still being imperfectly and inconsistently applied, but China is working to close the gaps. And even the perception of surveillance where it doesn’t exist has been shown to shape behavior.

    The limits of China’s willingness to use these tools at home or export them to others are unknown. Worse still, China’s digital authoritarianism could emerge as an exportable model, appealing to leaders on the fence about democratic norms, that could undercut or even rival liberal democracy.

    Part of what makes technologically enabled authoritarianism so complex is that the tools also have immense promise to serve customers and citizens well. They’re double-edged swords. Consider the surreal case of the California-based suspected serial killer apprehended after his relative voluntarily submitted DNA to an online ancestry database that matched material at the crime scene—or the accused Maryland newsroom shooter quickly identified by facial recognition. Or the lower-caste Indians who can now receive government benefits thanks to India’s national ID Aadhaar program, which relies on a database that has collected the iris scans and fingerprints of more than 1 billion Indians in a country where hundreds of millions previously lacked state identity cards. Or the Londoners kept safe by massive numbers of CCTV cameras. Or the predictive policing pilot launched in New Orleans with the pro-bono help of Palantir. Even in democracies with meaningful legal checks on state power, leveraging A.I. for policing often suffers from a lack of transparency, citizen input, and a serious risk of biased enforcement and overreach.

    China and a few small, advanced, authoritarian states such as Singapore (which is soliciting Chinese bids to install 110,000 advanced facial recognition sensors on the small city-state’s lampposts) and the United Arab Emirates are at the forefront of the application of these technologies. But as China embarks on a trillion-dollar global infrastructure construction binge known as the Belt and Road Initiative, it is already exporting its own tech-enabled authoritarian toolkit to gain profit or goodwill with local authorities, or simply to extend the reach of its own surveillance.

    What happens when these technologies migrate to bigger, more fractious societies? This won’t happen overnight—and the financial and logistical obstacles to broad implementation are significant. But there is every reason to think that in a decade or two, if not sooner, authoritarians and would-be strongmen in places like Turkey, Hungary, Egypt, or Rwanda will seek these tools and use them to thwart civil society and crush dissent in ways that weaken democracy globally.

    Already there are reports that Zimbabwe, for example, is turning to Chinese firms to implement nationwide facial-recognition and surveillance programs, wrapped into China’s infrastructure investments and a larger set of security agreements as well, including for policing online communication. The acquisition of black African faces will help China’s tech sector improve its overall data set.

    Malaysia, too, announced new partnerships this spring with China to equip police with wearable facial-recognition cameras. There are quiet reports of Arab Gulf countries turning to China not just for the drone technologies America has denied but also for the authoritarian suite of surveillance, recognition, and data tools perfected in China’s provinces. In a recent article on Egypt’s military-led efforts to build a new capital city beyond Cairo’s chaos and revolutionary squares, a retired general acting as project spokesman declared, “a smart city means a safe city, with cameras and sensors everywhere. There will be a command center to control the entire city.” Who is financing construction? China.

    While many governments are making attempts to secure this information, there have been several alarming stories of data leaks. Moreover, these national identifiers create an unprecedented opportunity for state surveillance at scale. What about collecting biometric information in nondemocratic regimes? In 2016, the personal details of nearly 50 million people in Turkey were leaked.

    Now is the time for those invested in individual freedom—in government, in civil society, and in the tech sector—to be thinking about the challenges ahead.

    This starts with basic transparency and awareness at home, in international fora, and ultimately inside nations deciding how and whether to adopt the tools of algorithmic authoritarianism. Diplomats, CEOs, activists, and others will need to use their various bully pulpits to reach members of the public. Oversight bodies like the U.S. Congress and European Parliament should convene hearings to hold tech companies and government agencies accountable for their role in exporting elements of the authoritarian toolkit in search of profits or market share. Forging reasonable, balanced approaches to these new technologies at home will be a crucial aspect of pushing other states to do the same. As a recent blog post from Microsoft’s President Brad Smith essentially calling for intensive study and regulation of this space makes clear, now is the time to bridge the tech-policy divide to find feasible, ethical solutions.

    Reaching beyond established democracies to set international norms and standards will be difficult, but it is essential to try. An international body, be it the European Union or United Nations, will need to put forward a set of best practices for protecting individual rights in an era of facial recognition. Companies and countries alike can group together to commit to protecting citizens by placing limits on facial recognition, offering the right in some instances to opt out of sharing biologically identifiable information, as Indians fought for and won, or protecting identifying data on the back end.

    China and other determined authoritarian states may prove undeterrable in their zeal to adopt repressive technologies. A more realistic goal, as Georgetown University scholar Nicholas Wright has argued, is to sway countries on the fence by pointing out the reputational costs of repression and supporting those who are advocating for civil liberties in this domain within their own countries. Democracy promoters (which we hope will one day again include the White House) will also want to recognize the coming changes to the authoritarian public sphere. They can start now in helping vulnerable populations and civil society to gain greater technological literacy to advocate for their rights in new domains. It is not too early for governments and civil society groups alike to study what technological and tactical countermeasures exist to circumvent and disrupt new authoritarian tools.

    Everyone will have to approach these developments with the humbling recognition that Silicon Valley is not the only game in town. Regardless of what happens stateside or in Europe, China will have formidable and growing indigenous capabilities to export to the rest of the world.

    Seven years ago, techno-optimists expressed hope that a wave of new digital tools for social networking and self-expression could help young people in the Middle East and elsewhere to find their voices. Today, a new wave of Chinese-led technological advances threatens to blossom into what we consider an “Arab spring in reverse”—in which the next digital wave shifts the pendulum back, enabling state domination and repression at a staggering scale and algorithmic effectiveness.

    Americans are absolutely right to be urgently focused on countering Russian weaponized hacking and leaking as its primary beneficiary sits in the Oval Office. But we also need to be more proactive in countering the tools of algorithmic authoritarianism that will shape the worldwide future of individual freedom.

Their work can protect–or jeopardize–critical infrastructures, such as electrical grids and transportation lines. And the algorithms they write may determine who gets a job, who is approved for a bank loan, or who gets released on bail.

    This is a preview of a research report from Business Insider Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about Business Insider Intelligence, click here.

    Edge computing solutions are key tools that help companies grapple with rising data volumes across industries. These types of solutions are critical in allowing companies to gain more control over the data their IoT devices create and in reducing their reliance on (and the costs of) cloud computing.

    edge popularity

    These systems are becoming more sought-after — 40% of companies that provide IoT solutions reported that edge computing came up more in discussion with customers in 2017 than the year before, according to Business Insider Intelligence’s 2017 Global IoT Executive Survey. But companies need to know whether they should look into edge computing solutions, and what in particular they can hope to gain from shifting data processing and analysis from the cloud to the edge.

    There are three particular types of problems that edge computing solutions are helping to combat across industries:

    • Security issues. Edge computing can limit the exposure of critical data by minimizing how often it’s transmitted. Further, they pre-process data, so there’s less data to secure overall.
    • Access issues. These systems help to provide live insights regardless of whether there’s a network connection available, greatly expanding where companies and organizations can use connected devices and the data they generate.
    • Transmission efficiency. Edge computing solutions process data where it’s created so less needs to be sent to the cloud, leading to lower cloud storage requirements and reduced transmission cost.

    In this report, Business Insider Intelligence examines how edge computing is reducing companies' reliance on cloud computing in three key industries: healthcare, telecommunications, and the automotive space. We explore how these systems mitigate issues in each sector by helping to efficiently process growing troves of data, expanding the potential realms of IoT solutions a company can offer, and bringing enhanced computing capability to remote and mobile platforms.

    Here are some key takeaways from the report:

    • In healthcare, companies and organizations are using edge computing to improve telemedicine and remote monitoring capabilities.
    • For telecommunications companies, edge computing is helping to reduce network congestion and enabling a shift toward the IoT platform market.
    • And in the automotive space, edge computing systems are enabling companies to increase the capabilities of connected cars and trucks and approach autonomy.

    In full, the report:

    • Explores the key advantages edge computing solutions can provide.
    • Highlights the circumstances when companies should look into edge systems.
    • Identifies key vendors and partners in specific industries while showcasing case studies of successful edge computing programs.

              Path to client workspace automation paved with hyperconverged infrastructure for New Jersey college      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    The next BriefingsDirect hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) use case discussion explores how a New Jersey college has embarked on the time-saving, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) modernization journey.

    We will now learn how the combination of HCI and VDI makes the task of deploying and maintaining the latest end-user devices far simpler -- and cheaper than ever before.

    Listen to the podcast. Find it on iTunes. Get the mobile app. Read a full transcript or download a copy.

    Here to explore how a new digital and data-driven culture can emerge from uniting the desktop edge with the hyper-efficient core are Tom Gillon, Director of Network and User Services at County College of Morris (CCM) in Randolph, New Jersey; Michael Gilchrist, Assistant Director of Network Systems at County College of Morris (CCM), and Felise Katz, CEO of PKA Technologies, Inc. The discussion is moderated by Dana Gardner, principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions.

    Here are some excerpts:

    Gardner: What are the trends driving your needs at County College of Morris to modernize and simplify your personal computer (PC) architecture?

    Gillon: We need to be flexible and agile in terms of getting software to the students, when they need it, where they need it.

    Gillon
    With physical infrastructure that really isn’t possible. So we realized that VDI was the solution to meet our goals -- to get the software where the students need it, when they need it, and so that’s a top trend that got us to this point.

    Gardner: And is the simplicity of VDI deployments something you are looking at universally, or is this more specific to just students?

    Gillon: We are looking to deploy VDI all throughout the college: Faculty, staff, and students. We started out with a pilot of 300 units that we mostly put out in labs and in common areas for the students. But now we are replacing older PCs that the faculty and staff use as well.

    Gardner: VDI has been around for a while, and for the first few years there was a lot of promise, but there was also some lag from complications in that certain apps and media wouldn’t run properly; there were network degradation issues. We’ve worked through a lot of that, but what are some of your top concerns, Michael, when it comes to some of those higher-order infrastructure performance issues that you have to conquer before you get to the proper payoff from VDI?

    To HCI Implementation Strategies
    Gilchrist: You want to make sure that the user experience is the same as what they would experience on a physical device, otherwise they will not accept it.

    Just having the horse power -- nowadays these servers are so powerful, and now you can even get graphics processing units (GPUs) in there -- you can run stuff like AutoCADor Adobeand still give the user the same experience that they would normally have on a physical device. That’s what we are finding. Pretty good so far.

    Gardner: Felise, as a Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Platinum Partner, you have been through this journey before, so you know how it was rough-and-tumble there for a while with VDI. How has that changed from your perspective at PKA Technologies?

    Katz: When HPE made the acquisition of SimpliVity that was the moment that defined a huge game-changer because it enabled us, as a solution provider, to bring the right technology to CCM. That was huge.

    Gardner: When you’re starting out on an IT transition, you have to keep the wings on the airplane while you’re changing the engines, or vice versa. You have to keep things going while you are doing change. Tom, how did you manage that? How did you keep your students getting their apps? How have you been able to swap things out in a way that hasn’t been disruptive?

    Gillon: The beauty of VDI is that we can switch out a lab completely with thin clients in about an hour. And we didn’t realize that going in. We thought it would take us most of the day. And then when we did it, we were like, “Oh my God, we are done.” We were able to go in there first thing in the morning and knock it out before the students even came in.

    That really helped us to get these devices out to where the students need them and to not be disruptive to them.
    That really helped us to get these devices out to where the students need them and not be disruptive to them.

    Gardner: Tom, how did it work from your perspective in terms of an orderly process? How was the support from your partners like PKA? Do you get to the point where this becomes routine?

    Gillon: PKA has the expertise in this area. We worked with them previously on an Aruba wireless network deployment project, and we knew that’s who we wanted to work with, because they were professional and thorough.

    Moving to the thin client systems deployments, we contacted PKA and they put together a solution that worked well for us. We had not been aware of SimpliVity combined with HPE. They determined that this would be the best path for us, and it turned out to be true. They came in and we worked with HPE, setting this up and deploying it. Michael did a lot of that work with HPE. It was very simple to do. We were surprised at how simple it was.

    Academic pressure 

    Gardner:Felise, as a solution partner that specializes in higher education, what’s different from working at a college campus environment from, say, a small- to medium-sized business (SMB) or another type of enterprise? Is there something specific about a college environment, such as the number of apps, the need for certain people and groups in the college to have different roles within responsibilities? How did it shake out?

    Katz: That’s an interesting question. As a solution provider, as an owner of a business, we always put our best foot forward. It really doesn’t matter whether it’s an academic institution or a commercial customer, it always has to be done in the right way.

    Katz
    As a matter of fact, in academics it’s even more profound, and a lot more pressured, because you are dealing with students, you are dealing with faculty, and you are dealing with IT staff. Once we are in a “go” mode, we are under a lot of pressure. We have a limited time span between semesters -- or vacations and holidays -- where we have to be around to help them to get it up and running.

    We have to make sure that the customer is enabled. And with these guys at CCM, they were so fabulous to work with. They enabled us to help them to do more with less -- and that’s what the solution is all about. It’s all about simplification. It’s all about modernization. It’s all about being more efficient. And as Michael said so eloquently, it’s all about the experience for the students. That’s what we care about.
    That’s Right for Your Needs
    Gardner: Michael, where are you on your VDI-enablement journey? We heard that you want to go pervasively to VDI. What have you had to put in place -- in terms of servers in the HPE SimpliVity HCI case -- to make that happen?

    Gilchrist: So far, we have six servers in total. Three servers in each of our two data centers that we have on campus, for high redundancy. That’s going to allow us to cover our initial pilot of 300 thin clients that we are putting out there.

    As far as the performance of the system goes, we are not even scratching the surface in terms of the computing or RAM available for those first 300 endpoints.

    When it comes to getting more thin clients, I think we’re going to be able to initially tack on more thin clients to the initial subset of six servers. And as we grow, the beauty of SimpliVity is that we just buy another server, rack it up, and bolt it in -- and that’s it. It’s just plug and play.

    Gardner: In order to assess how well this solution is working, let’s learn more about CCM. It’s 50 years old. What’s this college all about?

    Data-driven college transformation 

    Gillon: We are located in North Central New Jersey. We have an enrollment of about 8,000 students per semester; that’s for credit. We also have a lot of non-credit students coming and going as well.

    As you said, we are 50-years-old, and I’ve been there almost 23 years. I was the second person hired in the IT Department.

    I have seen a lot come and go, and we actually just last year inaugurated our third college president, just three presidents in 50 years. It’s a very stable environment, and it’s really a great place to work.

    Gardner: I understand that you have had with this newest leadership more of a technical and digital transformation focus. Tell us how the culture of the college has changed and how that may have impacted your leaping into some of the more modern infrastructure to support VDI.

    Gillon: Our new president is very data-driven. He wants data on everything, and frankly we weren't in a position to provide that.

    We also changed CIOs. Our new CIO came in about a year after the new president, and he has also a strong data background. He is more about data than technology. So, with that focus we really knew that we had to get systems in place that are capable of quick transitions, and this HCI system really did the job for us. We are looking to expand further beyond that.

    Gardner:Felise, I have heard other people refer to hyperconverged infrastructure architectures like SimpliVity as a gift that keeps giving. Clearly the reason to get into this was to support the VDI, which is a difficult workload. But there are also other benefits.
    The simplification from HCI has uncomplicated their capability for growth and for scale.

    What have been some of the other benefits that you have been able to demonstrate to CCM that come with HCI? Is it the compression, the data storage savings, or a clear disaster recovery path that they hadn’t had before? What do you see as some of the ancillary benefits?

    Katz: It's all of the above. But to me -- and I think to both Tom and Michael -- it's really the simplification, because [HCI] has uncomplicated their capability for growth and for scale.

    Look, they are in a very competitive business, okay, attracting students, as Tom said. That’s tough, that's where they have to make the difference, they have to make a difference when that student arrives on campus with his, I don’t know, how many devices, right?

    One student, five devices 

    Gillon: It averages five now, I think.

    Katz: Five devices that come on board. How do you contend with that, besides having this huge pipe for all the data and everything else that they have to enable? And then you have new ways of learning that everybody has to step up and enable. It's not just about a classroom; it’s a whole different world. And when you’re in a rural part of New Jersey, where you’re looking to attract students, you have to make sure you are at the top of your game.

    Gardner:Expectations are higher than ever, and the younger people are even more demanding because they haven’t known anything else.

    Katz: Yes, just think about their Xbox, their cell phones, and more devices. It's just a huge amount. And it's not only for them, it's also for your college staff.

    Gardner: We can’t have a conversation about IT infrastructure without getting into the speeds and feeds a little bit. Tell us about your SimpliVity footprint, energy, maintenance, and operating costs. What has this brought to you at CCM? You have been doing this for 23 years, you know what a high-maintenance server can be like. How has this changed your perspective on keeping a full-fledged infrastructure up and running?

    Ease into IT

    Gillon: There are tremendous benefits, and we are seeing that. The six servers that we have put in, they are replacing a lot of other devices. If we would have gone with a different solution, we would have had a rack full of servers to contend with. With this solution, we are putting three devices in each of our server rooms to handle the load of our initial 300 VDI deployments -- and hopefully more soon.

    There are a lot of savings involved, such as power. A lot of our time is being saved because we are not a big shop. Besides Michael and myself, I have a network administrator, and another systems administrator -- that’s it, four people. We just don't have the time to do a lot of things we need to do -- and this system solves a lot of those issues.

    Gilchrist: From a resources utilization standpoint, the deduplication and compression that the SimpliVity system provides is just insane. I am logically provisioning hundreds of terabytes of information in my VMware system -- and only using 1.5 terabytes physically. And just the backup and restore, it's kind of fire and forget. You put this stuff in place and it really does do what they say. You can restore large virtual machines (VMs) in about one or two seconds and then have it back up and running in case something goes haywire. It just makes my life a lot easier.

    I’m no longer having to worry about, “Well, who was my back-up vendor? Or who is my storage area network (SAN) vendor? And then there’s trying to combine all of those systems into one. Well, HPE SimpliVityjust takes care of all of that. It’s a one-stop shop; it’s a no-brainer.

    Gardner: All in one, Felise, is that a fair characterization?

    Katz: That is a very, very true assessment. My goal, my responsibility is to bring forward the best solution for my customers and having HPE in my corner with this is huge. It gives me the advantage to help my clients, and so we are able to put together a really great solution for CCM.

    Gardner: There seems to be a natural progression with IT infrastructure adoption patterns. You move from bare metal to virtualization, then you move from virtualization to HCI, and then that puts you on a path to private cloud -- and then hybrid cloud. And in doing this modernization, you get used to the programmatic approach to infrastructure, so composable infrastructure.

    Do you feel that this progression is helping you modernize your organization? And where might that lead to, Tom?

    Gillon: I do. With the experience we are gaining with SimpliVity, we see that this can go well beyond VDI, and we are excited about that. We are getting to a point where our current infrastructure is getting a little long in the tooth. We need to make some decisions, and right now the two of us are like, this is only decision we want to make. This is the way we are going to go.

    Gardner: I have also read that VDI is like the New York of IT -- if you can do it there, you can do it anywhere. So what next workloads do you have in mind? Is this enterprise resource planning (ERP), is it business apps? What?

    Gillon: All of the above. We are definitely looking to put some of our server loads into the VDI world, and just the benefits that SimpliVity gives to us in terms of business continuity and redundancy, it really is a no-brainer for us.

    And yes, ERP, we have our ERP system currently virtualized, and the way Michael has things set up now, it's going to be an easy transition for us when we get to that point.

    Gardner: We have talked a lot about the hardware, but we also have to factor in the software. You have been using the VMware Horizonapproach to VDI and workspaces, and that’s great, but what about moving toward cloud?

    Do you want to have more choice in your hypervisor? Does that set you on another path to make choices about private cloud? What comes next in terms of what you support on such a great HCI platform?

    A cloudy future?

    Gillon: We have decisions to make when it comes to cloud. We are doing some things in the cloud now, but there are some things we don't want to do in the cloud. And HPE has a lot of solutions.

    We recently attended a discussion with the CEO of HPE [Antonio Neri] about where they are headed, and they say hybrid is the way to go. You are going to have some on-premises workloads, you are going to have some off-premises. And that's where we see CCM going as well.

    Gardner: What advice would you give to other organizations that are maybe later in starting out with VDI? What might save them a step or two?
    Get yourself a good partner because there are so many things that you don't know about these systems.

    Gillon: First thing, get yourself a good partner because there are so many things that you don't know about these systems. And having a good partner like PKA, they brought a lot to the table. They could have easily provided a solution to us that was just a bunch of servers.

    Gilchrist: Yes, they brought in the expertise. We didn’t know about SimpliVity, and once they showed us everything that it can do, we were skeptical. But it just does it. We are really happy with it, and I have to say, having a good partner is step number one.

    Gardner: Felise, what recommendations do you have for organizations that are just now dipping their toe into workloads like VDI? What is it about HCI in particular that they should consider?

    Look to the future 

    Katz: If they are looking for flexible architecture, if they are looking for the agility, to be able to make those moves down the road -- and that's where their minds are – then they really have to do the due diligence. Tom, Michael and their team did. They were able understand what their needs are, what right requirements are for them -- not just for today but also going down the road to the future.

    When you adopt a new architecture, you are displacing a lot of your older methodologies, too. It’s a different world, a hybrid world. You need to be able to move, and to move the workloads back and forth.

    It’s a great time right now. It's a great place to be because things are working, and they are clicking. We have the reference architectures available now to help, but it’s really first about doing their homework.
    That’s Right for Your Needs
    CCM is really a great team to work with. It's really a pleasure, and it’s a lot of fun.

    And I would be remiss not to say, I have a great team. From my sales to my technical: Strategic Account Manager Angie Moncada, Systems Engineer Patrick Shelley, and Vice President of Technology Russ Chow, they were just all-in with them. That makes a huge difference when you also connect with HPE on the right solutions. So that’s really been great.
