          The Linux Foundation Announces the CHIPS Alliance, Raspberry Pi-Driven Dream Machine, Purism's Librem 5 Phone to Have Lockdown Mode, Avidemux 2.7.2 Now Available and sway 1.0 Released      Cache   Translate Page      

News briefs for March 12, 2019.

The Linux Foundation yesterday announced it is forming the CHIPS Alliance project to "host and curate high-quality open source code relevant to the design of silicon devices. CHIPS Alliance will foster a collaborative environment that will enable accelerated creation and deployment of more efficient and flexible chip designs for use in mobile, computing, consumer electronics, and Internet of Things (IoT) applications." According to the press release, Esperanto Technologies, Google, SiFive and Western Digital, are all early backers of the CHIPS Alliance, and all are "committed to both open source hardware and continued momentum behind the free and open RISC-V architecture."

The Dream Machine is a Raspberry Pi-driven vending machine recently launched by FOODBEAST and Nissin. RaspberryPi.org reports that the Dream Machine "retrofit vending machine" is part of a digital viral marketing campaign", and it "dispenses ramen noodles, video games, and swag in exchange for the use of an Instagram hashtag". So far, the Dream Machines have appeared in Torrance, California, and Las Vegas, Nevada.

Purism announces that along with three kill switches, Librem 5 smartphone also will have a new feature called "Lockdown Mode". As far as the kill switches, one is for cameras and microphone, one for WiFi and Bluetooth, and one for cellular baseband. Lockdown Mode goes further and "extends our normal kill switches to provide even more security and privacy". Purism's Chief Security Officer Kyle Rankin writes, "When in Lockdown Mode, in addition to powering off the cameras, microphone, WiFi, Bluetooth and cellular baseband we also cut power to GNSS, IMU, and ambient light and proximity sensors. Lockdown Mode leaves you with a perfectly usable portable computer, just with all tracking sensors and other hardware disabled. If you switch any of the hardware kill switches back on, the hardware that corresponds to that switch powers on along with GNSS, IMU, and ambient light and proximity sensors."

Avidemux 2.7.2 was released yesterday. This version of the video editor includes new demuxers and encoders, as well as the usual bugfixes. See also the UbuntuHandbook post for links to downloads and more install information.

sway 1.0 was released yesterday. This marks the first stable release of sway, and "represents a consistent, flexible, and powerful desktop environment for Linux and FreeBSD". Creator Drew DeVault writes, "Sway 1.0 adds a huge variety of features which were sorely missed on 0.x, improves performance in every respect, offers a more faithful implementation of Wayland, and exists as a positive political force in the Wayland ecosystem pushing for standardization and cooperation among Wayland projects." The GitHub page for sway 1.0 is here.

          From the Repetitive to the Strategic: Liberating IT Resources With iPaaS Integrations      Cache   Translate Page      

Managing the technical infrastructure that runs a company’s operations has traditionally been the sole realm of IT. This was especially true when companies were using client-server technologies that required advanced technical skills to set up, maintain, and make updates. However, as cloud computing has taken over, the role of IT is changing drastically, especially in the area of business applications or software used by specific business units or departments.

Cloud applications, or software-as-a-service (SaaS), has made it much easier for departments or even individuals to purchase, setup, and use applications without IT being aware of the applications. The self-service nature of SaaS has removed the IT bottleneck. These trends may indicate that that role of IT has become significantly diminished in the organization. In reality, these trends are freeing up IT resources so they can be focused on strategic projects that add value for a company.

           Comment on Unforced variations: Mar 2019 by Martin Smith       Cache   Translate Page      
#68 zebra My confusion is about the algorithm for computing the anomalies in, for example, this map: https://www.esrl.noaa.gov/psd/map/images/fnl/sfctmpmer_01a.fnl.anim.html There is a single global average reference value for the 0 on the Y axis, so I assume the color of each grid is computed from that global reference value. But if each station has its own reference value, then shouldn't the color of each grid be computed from the reference values of the stations in that grid?
          The ATLAS EventIndex and its evolution towards Run 3      Cache   Translate Page      
The ATLAS experiment produced so far hundreds of petabytes of data and expects to have one order of magnitude more in the future. This data are spread among hundreds of computing Grid sites around the world. The EventIndex is the complete catalogue of all ATLAS events, real and simulated, keeping the references to all permanent files that contain a given event in any processing stage. It provides the means to select and access event data in the ATLAS distributed storage system, and provides support for completeness and consistency checks and trigger and offline selection overlap studies. The EventIndex employs various data handling technologies like Hadoop and Oracle databases, and is integrated with other systems of the ATLAS distributed computing infrastructure, including those for data, metadata, and production management. The project is in operation since the start of LHC Run 2 in 2015, and is in permanent development in order to fit the production and analysis demands and follow technology evolutions. The main data store in Hadoop, based on MapFiles and HBase, has worked well during Run 2 but new solutions are explored for the future. This paper reports on the current system performance and on the studies of a new data storage prototype that can carry the EventIndex through Run 3.

          A CEO is calling out Amazon Web Services for encroaching on his company's turf — and some experts are supporting Amazon (ESTC, AMZN)      Cache   Translate Page      

Andy Jassy AWS

  • Earlier this week, Amazon Web Services announced Open Distro for Elasticsearch — its own version of Elasticsearch, an open source software project created by publicly-traded software company Elastic.
  • On Tuesday, Elastic CEO Shay Banon wrote a blog post in response to Amazon, taking it to task for what it sees as co-opting the Elasticsearch brand and community for its new project.
  • Open source software insiders we spoke to have mixed feelings about this episode: Some say that Amazon is purposely trying to split the Elasticsearch community, while others say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and Elastic should keep on trucking. 
  • This also raises questions about the business model of Elastic and other smaller open source software-based companies. Shares of Elastic were down about 2.5% on Tuesday, the first full day of trading after Amazon's announcement.

Earlier this week, Amazon Web Services announced Open Distro for Elasticsearch — its own version of Elasticsearch, an open source software project created by publicly-traded software company Elastic. 

Notably, this Open Distro includes several features for Elasticsearch that normally can only be found in Elastic's paid, premium version of the software. Shares of Elastic were down about 2.5% on Tuesday, the first full day of trading after Amazon's announcement.

On Tuesday, Elastic CEO Shay Banon took Amazon to task in a blog post accusing the cloud giant of misusing Elastic's brand, purposely co-opting its technology, and masking its actions "with fake altruism or benevolence."

Elasticsearch is an open source search project originally created by Elastic and used by companies like Uber and Tinder. Since Elasticsearch is open source, it's free and legal for anyone to use, modify or distribute as they see fit — including by Amazon, as it's doing here. 

In the blog post, Banon writes that this isn't the first time Elasticsearch has been forked — the term for when an open source project is copied and then modified to create a totally new software project with its own community and priorities. He writes that several Chinese companies have done it, and now, Amazon, too. 

"There was always a 'reason,' at times masked with fake altruism or benevolence," Banon wrote in a blog post. "None of these have lasted. They were built to serve their own needs, drive confusion, and splinter the community."

Open source industry experts tell Business Insider that it's not so cut-and-dried. Some say it's a sign of how hard it is for smaller open source companies to compete with the likes of Amazon, while others take Open Distro for Elasticsearch as a sign that Amazon is working to fight the perception that it doesn't give back to open source.

"I think it's not surprising things came to this point," Erica Brescia, co-founder and COO of open source software company Bitnami, told Business Insider. "It was inevitable that companies built around open source projects are going to try to innovate their business model. I think it's the beginning, not the end, in evolving business and strategy for open source companies."

Calling out Amazon

Amazon has said that it created Open Distro for Elasticsearch because Elastic, the company, was putting too much of its proprietary code into the main Elasticsearch project. That put AWS customers at legal risk, the company said, because it wasn't clear what was free-to-use open source and what was commercial, proprietary code. By running its own, vetted version of Elasticsearch, Amason could offer customers a trusted version of the software, it says.

"From our perspective, open source should be open source, and proprietary software should be proprietary," Amazon Web Services' Andi Gutmans said at the Open Source Leadership Summit on Tuesday, addressing Open Distro. "The first thing is, if you do open source you do open source. If you do proprietary, you do proprietary."

In his blog post, Banon said that others have bluntly copied the proprietary code in question — including, he says, Amazon. 

"Our commercial code has been an 'inspiration' for others, it has been bluntly copied by various companies, and even found its way back to certain distributions or forks, like the freshly minted Amazon one, sadly, painfully, with critical bugs," Banon said. "We kept on being focused on building great products and communities, that users love."

Banon also expressed concerns about Elastic's brand being "abused, hijacked, and misrepresented." Amazon has said that it intends to contribute code back to the main Elasticsearch project, which doesn't seem to impress Banon.

"Companies have falsely claimed that they work in collaboration with our company, topically Amazon," Banon wrote. "We did not let it distract us, we kept on building great products and communities, that users love. Dilution of focus is the enemy of a company, and we never let it affect us."

In addition, Banon addressed how Amazon wrote that it offered Elastic to "dedicate significant resources to help support a community-driven, non-intermingled version of Elasticsearch." Instead, Banon says, Amazon was "demanding preferential treatment," and claims that Elastic does not give any developers priority over others.

"When companies came to us, seeing our success, and asked for special working relationship in order to collaborate on code, demanding preferential treatment that would place them above our users, we told them no," Banon wrote. "This happened numerous times over the years, and only recently again, this time with Amazon."

Some are skeptical of Amazon

Amazon says that Open Distro is not a fork, and that it intends to contribute enough code back to the main project to keep it in parity with original Elasticsearch. It's an important distinction — if it is a fork, Open Distro could draw away developers and users from the original version of Elasticsearch, splitting the community. 

"Amazon's claiming it's not a fork and not a separate offering. However, it clearly is," Joseph Jacks, founder and general partner of OSS Capital, told Business Insider. "Amazon agreed to putting fixes and patches to the upstream communities, but we won't know how that project will unfold."

Jacks says that Amazon forking the code shows that the cloud giant is threatened by open source software and communities, but that it won't win support by treating them like a competitor.

"I think Amazon is better positioned to earn trust and respect of the Elastic user community if instead of treating Elastic with hostility and a competitivity dynamic, they treat them with a partnership dynamic," Jacks said. "That would lead to a better outcome of everyone."

Some think this is working as intended

Others say that Amazon's move is just how it goes with open source, and that it deserves the benefit of the doubt.

"One of the biggest compliments is when someone embraces and adopts it," Craig McLuckie, VP of R&D at VMware and co-creator of the mega-popular Kubernetes open source project, told Business Insider. "Everyone's looking for a villain here, but everyone wears an agenda on their sleeve. From my perspective, this is how open source should work. At the end of the day, a fork is the greatest compliment."

Chris Aniszczyk, CTO and COO of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, says he thinks it's positive to see Amazon contributing more to open source, and Open Distro solves a real problem for AWS customers. Microsoft, he says, was once seen as an enemy of open source, but it has become a huge proponent, and so too could Amazon. 

"Amazon has a historically bad reputation with their relationship to open source, but that's changing," Aniszczyk told Business Insider. "The analogy I'll use is, I spent most of my career hearing that Microsoft is the great Satan of open source. Amazon will change over time."

Previously, Oracle has forked the enterprise version of the Linux operating system, says Luis Villa, cofounder of Tidelift, but it was not a threat to Red Hat or other companies selling their own versions of Linux. Similarly, he does not think Open Distro will pose a major threat to Elastic over the long haul.

Still, Villa says, it's not necessarily a great look for Amazon to have gotten into the Elasticsearch game like this, given its reputation as an aggressive competitor. 

"There will be some customers who will need a specific thing Amazon will be able to serve better, but most will benefit from Elastic's upstream project," Villa told Business Insider. "There's more concern that Amazon is an 800 pound gorilla. There will be that perception. Amazon has done a lot lately to say, 'we're great participants in open source.' This set that back a bit."

Raising questions over business models

What stands out to some open source insiders is how this calls into question the so-called open core business model held by many open source software companies. Essentially, companies like Elastic give away the core of their products as open source, while making money by offering better technical support or advanced features.

In recent years, this business model has come under scrutiny, thanks to the rise of major cloud providers like Amazon. Those providers are free to take that open source code, add to it, and resell it as a service to customers for profit — potentially taking customers away from the company that created the software. Indeed, Amazon Web Services has provided an Elasticsearch-based service since 2015, just three years after Elastic was founded. 

Banon writes in his blog entry that Elastic's strong relationships with developers and focus on this one market sets it apart.

However, Bassam Tabbara, founder and CEO of open source company Upbound, says that it's a sign that Amazon poses a major threat to open core software companies. Because AWS is so big, and so profitable, it can subsidize the development of the software indefinitely, using it as a draw to bring more customers onto its cloud.

"It comes down to, can an open source project make money on a cloud offering if they're not a cloud provider? If the answer is no, essentially, the cloud providers will be the only ones making money from open source."

Sid Sijbrandij, CEO and co-founder of GitLab, still believes in the open core model. No matter what Amazon does, he says, there are ways to make your business resilient to that threat — like adding more proprietary features, and working harder to close deals with customers of all sizes. At the same time, he says, it's clear that it makes the competition that much more daunting.

"Amazon is doing what's right for their customers. They have an offering of Elasticsearch and they're creating more value for users of open source so I think it's smart for Amazon, but it's a problem for commercial open source companies."

          Google has told dozens of employees in its laptop and tablet division to find new jobs at the company, raising questions about its hardware plans (GOOG, GOOGL)      Cache   Translate Page      

Rick Osterloh

  • Google appears to be trimming the size of its laptop and tablet hardware group, telling dozens of engineers and program managers to find other roles with the Alphabet parent company, several people familiar with the matter told Business Insider.
  • The restructuring involves Google's "Create" division, which is responsible for developing and manufacturing the Pixelbook laptop and Pixel Slate tablet amongst the company's wider swath of "Made by Google" products.
  • According to one source, the Create hardware team had a "bunch of stuff in the works" and that the cutting the number of hardware engineers and program managers on the team will likely "pare down the portfolio" of products. 
  • Affected employees have been instructed to seek temporary roles within other Google or Alphabet teams, raising questions about Google's future hardware plans.

Google has moved dozens of employees out of its laptop and tablet division, scaling back the size of its in-house hardware group as it re-assesses product plans in the fiercely competitive computer market.

Dozens of Google employees working on the company's "Create" team — an internal hardware division responsible for developing and manufacturing Google's laptop and tablet products — have been told to find new projects within Google or its parent company Alphabet, amid what sources describe as "roadmap cutbacks." 

Among the affected employees who were given notice of the cutbacks in the last two weeks are hardware engineers, technical program managers, and those who support program managers. Sources say projects have been canceled within the laptop and tablet division, prompting the changes, but that team members have been instructed to find new roles temporarily within the Google or Alphabet organization.

By asking employees to seek temporary, rather than permanent, new roles, Google may be leaving itself flexibility to boost staffing on the Create hardware team in the future. Already, these "floating" employees have been seeking roles within the company's smartphone division, Pixel, and other Alphabet companies, sources say. 

A Google spokesperson declined Business Insider's request for comment. 

The "roadmap pushout," as one source familiar with the matter described the move to Business Insider, raises questions about the extent of Google's commitment to building its own line of laptops and tablets, a fiercely competitive market with thin razor profit margins.

After several false starts, including a short lived acquisition of phone maker Motorola from 2012 to 2014, Google declared its seriousness about hardware in 2016 when it hired Rick Osterloh to head up a new hardware group. Google has repeatedly stressed it is in the hardware business for the long run, even as the efforts have driven up expenses and weighed down the rich profit margins of Google's online ad business.

Today, the Create division is responsible for the Pixelbook laptop and Pixel Slate tablet amongst the company's wider swath of "Made by Google" products. Other divisions within the company's hardware product area (known internally as HWPA) include Pixel (for smartphones), Home (for smart home devices, including Nest), and Wearables.

Manufacturing roles on Create were not impacted by the recent downsizing, signaling Google's near term product lineup will likely not change. But according to one person familiar with the matter, the Create group had a "bunch of stuff in the works" and that the cutting the number of hardware engineers and program managers on the team will likely "pare down the portfolio" of products. 

The Pixelbook raised eyebrows at its launch, given its high-cost (starting at $999) relative to its limited capabilities (the Pixelbook is a Chromebook, meaning it runs on Google's Chrome OS software and is only capable of using internet-based applications). Most Chromebooks that are not manufactured by Google itself are much lower priced, like Samsung's Chromebook Plus which starts at $499. Still, the Pixelbook, with its aluminum chassis and high-end screen, was seen as a model for what a premium, Mac-like Chromebook could look like.

Rumors of a Pixelbook 2 have been swirling since the company's hardware event last October though it has yet to be released. While there is no indication that Google plans to abandon the Pixelbook, the staff reductions suggest that Google is unlikely to flesh out its in-house line of Chromebooks with a wider variety of products and prices. 

Google's tablets meanwhile have struggled to hit the right note with consumers.

The first Google manufactured tablet — known as the Pixel C — was launched in 2015 and received less than stellar reviews. The longtime tech reviewer Walt Mossberg said that the Pixel C represents "an object lesson in what Google shouldn't do if it pursues home-grown integration of hardware and software." The company launched its Pixel Slate — a tablet that acts like a laptop, meant to compete with Microsoft's Surface Pro and Apple's iPad Pro — to a similar, cold reception

Downsizing its laptop and tablet division comes almost three years after Google unified its hardware efforts under the leadership of Osterloh. Since then, sources tell us that pressure has increased to make hardware at Google into a "real business."

All-Cloud vs. On-Premises vs. Hybrid: How 3 Businesses Chose the Right Infrastructure juliet.vanwage… Mon, 03/11/2019 - 10:21

Carvana is not a run-of-the-mill ­ used-car dealership: Its unique method of selling and distributing vehicles nationwide is disrupting the industry. So it should come as no surprise that the company deploys cutting-edge technology and IT infrastructure.

Shoppers can peruse cars online, see a 360-degree view of vehicles through special camera technology, arrange financing and finalize the sale — all within a few minutes and without a salesperson’s help. Buyers can receive their cars at home or visit one of Carvana’s signature, fully automated car vending machines, where they plop in giant coins and watch the machine dispense their new ride.

To provide the best customer service possible and ensure 24/7 uptime, Imran Kazi, Carvana’s senior director of technology services, has taken a hybrid approach. He’s deployed a small footprint of Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure at the company’s headquarters in Tempe, Ariz., for testing and ­development and at car inspection ­centers for local compute and storage needs. But the company’s website, ­applications and data are all hosted in the public cloud.

“We don’t want to reinvent the wheel by building a big data center infrastructure, then worrying about depreciating and failing hardware,” Kazi says. “We can focus on implementing and supporting the right software solutions and tools for our employees, which helps create better experiences for our customers.”

More businesses and nonprofits are moving their infrastructure to the cloud, now that it’s proven to be secure, reliable and cost-effective. But while cloud service providers can improve efficiencies and provide benefits such as redundancy and the ability to scale up and down quickly, the cloud is not always the best choice or necessarily the least expensive.

In some cases, it’s less costly to retain applications and data in-house, particularly if organizations have legacy or custom applications that are not easily migrated to the cloud. And companies concerned about latency or that have to comply with data regulations may need to keep workloads on-premises.

Some organizations have gone all-in on the public cloud. Some are sticking with traditional on-premises infrastructure or a private cloud, while others are using a mix. Analysts say companies and nonprofits have to decide what’s right for their unique requirements.

“Some see hybrid as a step on the way to the cloud,” says Frank Della Rosa, IDC’s research director for SaaS and Cloud. “Workloads sitting on-premises can eventually be moved, but some ­businesses still deal with latency and bandwidth concerns or data sovereignty and privacy issues. Those factors ­determine whether a workload is suitable for the public cloud, on-premises or private cloud.”

1. Hybrid Infrastructure Delivers Flexibility for Carvana

When Kazi joined Carvana in 2016, he had the opportunity to build the company’s IT infrastructure from scratch. At the time, the online auto retailer had spun off from its former parent company, but its applications and data still resided in the former parent’s data centers.

Kazi migrated customer-facing and business applications, such as customer relationship management and enterprise resource planning software, across several cloud providers, including Microsoft Azure. He also adopted Software as a Service offerings: RingCentral for unified communications and Google G Suite for email and collaboration.

Carvana

He chose the commercial cloud for three primary benefits: It saves money. It provides the company the agility it needs for growth. And instead of having to manage infrastructure in the production environment, the cloud frees up IT staff for more strategic needs.

Kazi also built a private cloud across two data centers using Nutanix’s HCI appliances, which combine servers, storage, networking and virtualization into a small-footprint appliance.

These unified systems, which run on Nutanix’s license-free AHV hypervisor, are more energy efficient, easier to ­manage and easier to scale than traditional hardware. If the environment reaches capacity, Kazi can purchase new appliances and quickly configure them with Nutanix’s management software.

“We can easily expand as we grow and have more projects,” he says.

Since Kazi’s arrival, Carvana has grown rapidly nationwide, expanding from 11 cities to 96. It runs about 350 virtual machines across 25 clusters of Nutanix appliances. Data scientists, ­analysts and developers use them as a test and staging area for new applications and algorithms. The company uses analytics to understand customer preferences, discover new markets to enter and drive logistical efficiencies.

Through the private cloud, employees can fully test out applications and algorithms before deploying them in production in the public cloud. Having full control of in-house infrastructure aids that effort.

“We can understand every nuance of the software and what resources it takes, and then we figure out the best cloud platform to put it into production,” Kazi says.

The company also installs a Nutanix appliance in each of its car inspection centers, where 360-degree photo ­technology takes data-intensive pictures of the cars. “We need the infrastructure locally to upload the photos to the cloud,” Kazi says.

2. The Cloud Saves BARBRI Time and Money

The BARBRI Group, a Dallas-based legal education company that provides online prep courses for bar exams, has saved hundreds of thousands of ­dollars annually by shutting down its data centers and moving fully to Microsoft Azure.

About three years ago, the company had two redundant data centers in colocation facilities, but the IT infrastructure was reaching its end of life. Faced with a massive IT investment, the company went with the cloud because it was more cost-effective and efficient, says IT Director Mark Kaplan.

One reason is the scalability that the cloud offers to a seasonal business like BARBRI, which has its busy seasons in summer and winter. Instead of internal data centers running full-throttle year-round, Azure allows the company to spin up more resources during the demanding months and scale down during slow periods, Kaplan says.

It’s a huge financial savings,” he says. “We didn’t have to do a huge capital outlay, and then we ended up finding out that it’s just easier to manage.”

Cloud

BARBRI migrated to the cloud gradually. In 2016, Kaplan shut down one data center and operated half on-prem and half in the cloud. The company migrated to Azure’s Database as a Service offering, then it moved 250 applications.

“It allowed us to get used to working in the cloud, and if it failed, we could cut back to on-premises,” he explains.

The cloud effort was a success, however. So, in January 2017, Kaplan shut down the remaining data center and went all-cloud. The company uses Azure Backup for its virtual machines and changed from an expensive multiprotocol label-switching network to a ­software-defined WAN using Cisco Meraki switches. Microsoft manages the infrastructure and databases, while the BARBRI IT staff manages its own ­software and handles OS upgrades. The freed-up time allows the IT staff to pursue new projects, such as using machine learning to build online courses that adapt to students’ needs in real time.

3. Detroit Symphony Orchestra Sees the Advantages of HCI

At the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Jody Harper knew the organization’s three aging servers were near the end of life, but as a nonprofit with a tight budget, it hoped to prolong their life span as much as possible. In late 2017, however, the servers crashed, knocking out the symphony’s website and preventing its 75 full-time employees from working for a full day.

Harper got the 8-year-old servers running again, but it was just a temporary fix. He needed a long-term solution — and fast.

“If no one can buy tickets from our website, that’s money lost,” says Harper, senior director of technology and infrastructure.

Fortunately, he had done his homework and researched his options. Moving to the cloud was not realistic because it would require too much time and money to redesign the custom integration that exists between the symphony’s two most critical applications — its website and CRM software — for the cloud.

Instead, Harper wanted hyperconverged equipment. In the ensuing four weeks, he purchased and deployed three Scale Computing hyperconverged appliances because of their affordability and ease of use.

“For a nonprofit, cost is, hands-down, a major factor,” he says. “It’s also simple and easy. I can spin up a new server in 10 clicks.”

Today, 25 virtual servers run on the Scale equipment, including financial and event management software, databases and file and print servers.

A hybrid cloud approach is still a future option, however. To improve disaster recovery, Harper is considering using the public cloud as a backup site. In the meantime, he recently purchased a fourth Scale appliance to replicate data in a separate location.

“It’s a reliable product. It’s made our lives easier, and now we have a fourth one for disaster purposes,” he says.

           Gov Tech Giant CentralSquare Announces New Leadership Team       Cache   Translate Page      

Eight months after the merger of three companies created CentralSquare, the gov tech giant has finalized its new executive leadership team, including five Superion alumni and one each from Ellucian, CA Technologies and TriTech Software Systems.

Superion and TriTech no longer exist as separate entities, as they were two of three cornerstone companies that merged in July 2018 to create CentralSquare, along with Aptean’s public-sector and health-care business. A fourth brand associated with CentralSquare, Zuercher Technologies, was a subsidiary of TriTech prior to the merger. CentralSquare also acquired Lucity, a company that makes asset management software, in January.

The announcement of former Superion CEO Simon Angove as chief executive officer of CentralSquare came with news about the merger last year, before the new company had a name. Earlier in his career, Angove was a senior executive at cybersecurity software company Verint and started a number of companies involved with video analytics and cloud computing.

According to a news release last week, seven executive leadership positions around Angove have now been filled to include:

Chief Financial Officer Brad Surminski, who previously held that title at Superion, D+H and ADP Canada Chief Operating Officer Jeff Davison, who has experience with cloud software deployment as former vice president of professional services at Ellucian Tom Amburgey, senior VP and general manager of CentralSquare’s Public Administration business unit, who held similar titles at Superion and has been CIO of the Florida municipalities of Wellington and Hallandale Beach Steve Seoane, executive VP and general manager of CentralSquare’s Public Safety business unit, who previously led product development at TriTech Chief Technology Officer John Pulling, who held the same title at Superion and previously led technology operations at Lanyon and BigMachines, and product management for strategic applications at Infor Chief Marketing Officer Jatin Atre, who held that title at Superion and was senior VP of marketing at Applied Predictive Technologies, a business analytics software company in Washington, D.C. Chief Revenue Officer Chris Schwartz, who helped built the market strategy for CA Technologies’ major SaaS platform for agile management

“The skills and expertise of this leadership team exemplify the core values that define our company culture,” Angove said in the statement. “Driven by a passion for innovation, growth, community and agility, the team will ensure we take the lead in innovating and delivering truly compelling technology solutions for building safer and smarter communities.”

Since it announced the foundational merger last year, CentralSquare has been one of the largest companies in the gov tech space, serving more than 7,500 agencies large and small across the U.S. and Canada — agencies that purportedly cover three-quarters of the population of those nations. The scope of its software products includes public safety, finance, human capital management, payroll, utility billing, citizen engagement, asset management, regulatory compliance, community development and hospital recordkeeping and compliance.

The company recently announced a push to hire 400 new employees at centers of excellence across the U.S. and Canada.

Cloudops (cloud operations) and secops (security operations) are quickly evolving practices. While I’m seeing some errors, what’s more common is that ops teams are leaving important things out. If these missing aspects are not addressed, secops will become problematic quickly.

Here are two secops omissions that you can deal with today, even though your public cloud provider won’t tell you about, won’t be on any certification, and is typically widely misunderstood.

Both secops and govops (governance operations) need to be proactive, meaning that they need to adjust based on changing threats in the case of secops, and changing policies in the case of govops.

          Watches? We Don't Need No Stinking Watches...      Cache   Translate Page      
Juvat's Watch as in...
P.S. Sarge...This is what a Fighter Pilot's watch looks like.
So there was a little back and forth between juvat et moi the other day, vis-à-vis what is (and what isn't) a "fighter pilot's watch."

It all began on Sunday, John in Philly brought up the subject of watches...
One of the approximately three gazillion settings on my G-Shock watch is an automatic DSL change and the watch successfully changed the time sometime during the night. (and yes, the G-Shock is a rather large and complicated watch, but as Freud would probably have said, "Sometimes a watch is just a watch." :)
I responded with...
I used to have a G-Shock, loved it. Now I've got the fighter pilot watch. Hey, it's just a timepiece!
Then juvat chimed in with...
And what "fighter pilot watch" is that, Sarge? Be careful, be very careful.....
:-)
So Monday, juvat hit me with that "This is what a Fighter Pilot's watch looks like" schtick.

So Your Humble Scribe came back with...
I'll show you my fighter pilot watch, probably tomorrow. Hint, it isn't made of rubber. :) (It's also, technically, a Naval Aviator watch.)
Juvat, ever quick on the uptake, hit me with...
TOT was plus or minus 2 seconds. I didn't want to have to interpret how much time I had left. Hence the digital watch. I don't think there were many guys in any of my squadrons that still had dials for their working watches. Bar Watches was a different story. 
I get it, when one is rolling in hot, computing ± 2 seconds while looking at a digital readout is probably easier than tracking the second hand on an analog watch. Note the last sentence in juvat's comment - "Bar Watches was a different story. " (Paging PLQ, paging PLQ.)

Apparently what I have is a (ahem) Bar Watch, which is proudly displayed below...


Anybody care to guess which bar that is the background?

At any rate, our own Beans chimed in on watches as part of another of his epic comments -
As to the watch, do you find that the two planes and the pilot interfere with stuff when you're walking around or driving? You do know they make glasses with head-up displays for time, temp, heading, gps location and such, right? Or is that too modern for you?

Watches, I've broken more watches due to my extreme klutziness, so I just use time on the microwave, or in the car, or on the phone, or on the computer or on the tv or on the saw, or on the jug of milk or the bottle of soda or on the toilet paper roll... wait, no, no time on the toilet paper roll, may have been exaggerating on some other things (though I hear there are internet-of-things appliances that have, well, internet so everything has the time, weather, NSA spy app running 24/7 (or 23/1 or 25/1 depending on the DST date...)
That first sentence induced great hilarity in the cubicle farm yesterday. Well, from my little patch of said farm. (In reality, I refer to it as my hideout, very few people know where I sit now, I like it like that. I'm in a cubicle, in a lab, behind a security door, and most of the folks therein are systems engineers or IT types and I'm a software guy. I'm kind of a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma, because most of what I do is systems testing and documenting how the stuff works. At least how it's supposed to work, I haven't written a line of code in months. By choice.)

Anyhoo, Beans showed his disdain for watches, as did Skip -
I have several watches, but can’t and don’t want to find them... stopped wearing one even before the work thing ended.
Kinda like this...



Or maybe more like this, substitute "watches" for "badges."


I swear, these retired guys...

Whose ranks I intend to join someday, someday soon!

In the meantime, here are two bloggers, on the loose, no spousal units in range, having a good old time at Hizzoner's old hangout.


Cuppla handsome guys, right there.

           Clearleft at CERN: celebrating 30 years of the Web      Cache   Translate Page      

CERN is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Web today, and we’re proud to play a small part in the proceedings.

In March 1989, while working at CERN, Sir Tim Berners-Lee wrote his first proposal for an internet-based hypertext system to link and access information across different computers. His proposal became the World Wide Web. CERN is celebrating the 30th anniversary of this revolutionary invention with a special event today, and a series of other celebrations around the world.

The Web@30 event at CERN kicked off this morning with a fascinating panel discussion featuring Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Robert Cailliau and other Web pioneers sharing their views on the challenges and opportunities brought by the Web.

The live audience in Geneva comprised a select group of invitees, which we’re very proud to say included one of Clearleft’s cofounders, Jeremy Keith.

As part of a project to preserve some of the digital assets associated with the birth of the Web, Jeremy worked on a project in February to recreate the very first browser using current technology.

Previously, Jeremy also worked with CERN to organise a project to recreate the line-mode Web browser.

On being invited to CERN to join the celebrations, Jeremy wrote:

I’m so excited about this! I’m such a nerd for web history, it’s going to be like Christmas for me. The whole thing will be over by mid-morning. Then, [team member and fellow Brightonian] Remy and I will take an afternoon flight back to England …just in time for the evening event at London’s Science Museum.

Eρχονται οι ηλεκτρονικοί φυσιογνωμιστές
Νέα ηλεκτρονικά προγράμματα αναλύουν τις εκφράσεις των προσώπων μας
για να αποκαλύψουν τα συναισθήματα μας 
Εφτασε η εποχή που ένα ηλεκτρονικό πρόγραμμα μπορεί αναλύοντας τις εκφράσεις του προσώπου ενός ατόμου να διαπιστώνει αν το άτομο αυτό αποτελεί πιθανή απειλή;
 Αν το άτομο αυτό πρόκειται να πραγματοποιήσει μια παράνομη ή ακόμη και τρομοκρατική ενέργεια; Οι αμερικανικές Αρχές ήθελαν να έχουν στην κατοχής τους ένα τέτοιο πρόγραμμα και έτσι το 2003 ξεκίνησαν οι δοκιμές του Spot (Screening of Passengers by Observation Techniques). 


Ηταν ένα πρόγραμμα παρακολούθησης για την ανάπτυξη του οποίου είχε ζητηθεί η συμβολή του Πολ Εκμαν, καθηγητή ψυχολογίας στο πανεπιστήμιο της Καλιφόρνια. Ο Εκμαν μαζί με δύο συναδέλφους του είχαν αναπτύξει στην δεκαετία του 1960 μια θεωρία σύμφωνα με την οποία υπάρχουν έξι βασικά συναισθήματα (θυμός, απέχθεια, φόβος, χαρά, λύπη, έκπληξη) τα οποία υπάρχουν σε όλους τους ανθρώπους ανεξαρτήτως του τόπου που γεννήθηκαν και ζουν και ανεξαρτήτως του πολιτισμού και της κουλτούρας τους. Σύμφωνα με τον Εκμαν και τους συναδέλφους του αυτά τα συναισθήματα αποτυπώνονται με συγκεκριμένους τρόπους στο πρόσωπο οπότε μπορούν να ανιχνευθούν. 


Για να αποδείξουν την θεωρία τους ο Εκμαν και οι συνάδελφοι του παρουσίασαν εικόνες από εντελώς διαφορετικά άτομα που είχαν την ίδια έκφραση προσώπου και είχε διαπιστωθεί ότι εκείνη την στιγμή ένιωθαν το ίδιο συναίσθημα. Παρουσίασαν για παράδειγμα, τις εικόνες ενός αμερικανού τραπεζίτη και ενός ιθαγενή κυνηγού από την Παπούα Νέα Γουινέα οι οποίοι είχαν συνοφρυωθεί και είχαν σφίξει τα χείλη τους. Είχε διαπιστωθεί ότι την δεδομένη στιγμή και οι δύο ένιωθαν θυμό. Οι τρεις ερευνητές ανέπτυξαν στην συνέχεια και μια μέθοδο ανάλυσης των εκφράσεων του προσώπου για αν εντοπίζονται τα συναισθήματα ενός ανθρώπου.

Το Spot προοριζόταν αρχικά για χρήση στα μέσα μαζικής μεταφοράς των ΗΠΑ (κυρίως τα αεροδρόμια) και για αυτό εκπαιδεύονταν σε αυτό υπάλληλοι των μέσων μαζικής μεταφοράς για να μπορούν να αναγνωρίζουν στα πρόσωπα των επιβατών άτομα που φαίνονταν ύποπτα. Όταν τελικά το 2007 το Spot άρχισε να χρησιμοποιείται τα προβλήματα ήταν πολλά. Οι υπάλληλοι που ήταν επιφορτισμένοι με τον εντοπισμό ύποπτων ατόμων υπεδείκνυαν επιβάτες οι οποίοι στην συνέχεια ανακρίνονταν. Όμως αποδείχθηκε ότι οι υπάλληλοι επέλεγαν συνήθως άτομα κατά τύχη και όχι βάση της ανάλυσης των εκφράσεων τους οι οποίες θα μπορούσαν να θεωρηθούν ως περίεργε ή ύποπτες. Για αυτό και από τους παρά πολλούς υπόπτους που υπέδειξαν οι υπάλληλοι ελάχιστοι τελικά συνελήφθησαν και κανείς από αυτούς δεν αντιμετώπισε κατηγορίες σχετικές με τρομοκρατία. Ο Εκμαν μετά από όλα αυτά πήρε δημόσια αποστάσεις από το Spot υποστηρίζοντας ότι η μέθοδος του δεν εφαρμόστηκε σωστά. Όμως κάποιοι ειδικοί ανέφεραν ότι η αποτυχία του προγράμματος ήταν προδιαγεγραμμένη αφού όπως υποστηρίζουν η μέθοδος του Εκμαν είναι λάθος στον πυρήνα της. Σύμφωνα με αυτούς τους ειδικούς δεν μπορεί να υπάρχει αξιόπιστη ανάλυση των εκφράσεων του προσώπου και κατ’ επέκταση σύνδεση τους με συγκεκριμένα συναισθήματα.


Τα νέα προγράμματα 


Όπως αναφέρει σε δημοσίευμα της η εφημερίδα Guardian τα τελευταία χρόνια πολλές εταιρείες αποφάσισαν να χρησιμοποιήσουν ξανά την μέθοδο του Εκμαν για να εκπαιδεύσουν αυτή την φορά όχι ανθρώπους αλλά αλγορίθμους στην ανάλυση των εκφράσεων του προσώπου και την σύνδεση τους με συγκεκριμένα κάθε φορά συναισθήματα. Οσοι εμπλέκονται στην ανάπτυξη αυτών των αλγορίθμων υποστηρίζουν ότι τα ηλεκτρονικά συστήματα που θα αναπτυχθούν θα είναι πολύ καλύτερα στην ανάλυση των εκφράσεων ενός προσώπου από ότι οι άνθρωποι και θα μπορούν τα προγράμματα να ανακαλύψουν τα συναισθήματα από τα οποία κυριαρχείται κάποιος την δεδομένη στιγμή της παρακολούθησης του. Πολλοί ειδικοί όμως στον τομέα της ανάλυσης των συναισθημάτων υποστηρίζουν ότι και αυτοί οι νέοι προηγμένοι αλγόριθμοι θα αποτύχουν αφού τελικά θα κάνουν ότι και οι υπάλληλοι των μέσων μαζικής μεταφοράς δηλαδή θα μαντεύουν αν κάποιος είναι ύποπτος τέλεσης κάποιας αξιόποινης πράξης και η επιλογή τους δεν θα είναι αποτέλεσμα κάποιας αξιόπιστης ανάλυσης. Οι ειδικοί υποστηρίζουν ότι και αυτοί οι αλγόριθμοι όπως και το Spot στηρίζονται σε «ελαττωματική επιστήμη» όπως χαρακτηρίζουν την μέθοδο του Εκμαν. 


Η βιομηχανία 


Μπορεί πολλοί ειδικοί να δηλώνουν ότι δεν είναι εφικτό να γίνει αξιόπιστη ανάλυση των εκφράσεων του προσώπου ενός ανθρώπου και σύνδεση τους με τα συναισθήματα του αλλά αυτά τα προγράμματα δημιουργούν ένα νέο τομέα τεχνολογίας η εμπορική αξία του οποίου κοστολογείται αυτή την στιγμή στα 20 δισ. δολάρια. Εκτός από τον εντοπισμό κακοποιών ή τρομοκρατών τα συστήματα εντοπισμού συναισθημάτων μέσω της ανάλυσης των προσώπων μπορούν να έχουν διαφόρων ειδών εφαρμογές. Θα μπορούν για παράδειγμα, να παρακολουθούν τους οδηγούς για να διαπιστώνουν αν κάποιος για διαφόρους λόγους αρχίζει να γίνεται επικίνδυνος στο τιμόνι ή να βοηθούν τους γιατρούς να ελέγχουν την ψυχολογική κατάσταση στην οποία βρίσκονται οι ασθενείς τους στοιχείο σημαντικό για την πορεία της υγείας και της θεραπείας τους. 


Όπως είναι ευνόητο λοιπόν πολλές εταιρείες θα ήθελαν να αποκτήσουν μερίδιο σε αυτή την πολύ δυναμική νέα αγορά. Πρωτοπόρος στον συγκεκριμένο τομέα είναι η μια start up εταιρεία η Affectiva η οποία δημιουργήθηκε από ερευνητές του εργαστηρίου Affective Computing στο MIT και αποτελεί τον εμπορικό βραχίονα για την εκμετάλλευση της τεχνολογίας ανάλυσης εκφράσεων του προσώπου που αναπτύχθηκε στο Πανεπιστήμιο. Η Affectiva ανέπτυξε κάποια στιγμή ένα σύστημα ανάλυσης των προσώπων και εντοπισμού των συναισθημάτων παιδιών που πάσχουν από Ασπεργκερ, ένα σύνδρομο που ανήκει στις διαταραχές του αυτιστικού φάσματος. Το σύστημα αποδείχθηκε αρκετά αξιόπιστο και έτσι η Affectiva προσεγγίστηκε από βιομηχανικού κολοσσούς του κλάδου των τροφίμων, από μεγάλα τηλεοπτικά δίκτυα και διάφορες εταιρείες για να συνεργαστούν στην ανάπτυξη ανάλογων συστημάτων που θα εξυπηρετούσαν τους σκοπούς τους. Η Affectiva έχει στην κατοχή της μια βάση δεδομένων 7.5 εκατ. ανθρώπων από 87 χώρες με καταγραφές των προσώπων τους είτε την ώρα που οδηγούσαν είτε όταν παρακολουθούσαν τηλεόραση. Τα στελέχη της εταιρείας υποστηρίζουν ότι αυτή η βάση δεδομένων την βοηθά να αναπτύσσει και να βελτιώνει τα συστήματα της. Γίγαντες της τεχνολογίας όπως η Microsoft, η IBM και η Amazon που αναπτύσσουν τεχνολογίες αναγνώρισης προσώπων υποστηρίζουν εσχάτως ότι τα συστήματα τους εμπεριέχουν και τεχνολογίες ανάλυσης συναισθημάτων. 


Όπως είναι ευνόητο σαν τα μανιτάρια ξεπετάγονται μικρές εταιρείες που δημιουργούνται με αντικείμενο την ανάπτυξη τεχνολογίας ανάλυσης συναισθημάτων. Όμως εξακολουθούν να υπάρχουν πολλές ενστάσεις από ειδικούς για τα συστήματα που έχουν μέχρι σήμερα παρουσιαστεί καταγγέλλοντας μάλιστα ότι ορισμένα από αυτά είναι ολίγον… ρατσιστικά αφού δείχνουν ότι οι μαύροι έχουν περισσότερες εκφράσεις προσώπου που αποκαλύπτουν θυμό από ότι οι λευκοί. Για αυτό και υπάρχει συζήτηση ανάμεσα στους ειδικούς για το αν για να γίνει σωστά η ανάλυση των εκφράσεων του προσώπου ενός ατόμου θα πρέπει η σύγκριση να γίνει με τις εκφράσεις των προσώπων ατόμων ίδιας εθνικότητας. Όπως και να έχει το πράγμα τα προγράμματα αναζήτησης των συναισθημάτων μας είναι εδώ και όπως σε πολλές περιπτώσεις της σύγχρονης τεχνολογίας έτσι και σε αυτήν οι πιθανές ωφέλειες είναι πολλές και άκρως ενδιαφέρουσες αλλά και οι πιθανοί κίνδυνοι κακής χρήσης αυτής της τεχνολογίας είναι επίσης πολλοί. Μένει να δούμε που θα γείρει η πλάστιγγα…

  • The GraphQL Foundation Announces Collaboration with the Joint Development Foundation to Drive Open Source and Open Standards

    The GraphQL Foundation, a neutral home for the GraphQL community to accelerate development of the surrounding ecosystem, today announces it is collaborating with the Joint Development Foundation (JDF), which recently joined the Linux Foundation to drive adoption of open source and standards, to continue developing the GraphQL specification.

    GraphQL Foundation encourages contributions, stewardship, and a shared investment from a broad group in vendor-neutral events, documentation, tools, and support for the data query language. The following companies Apollo, AWS, Butterfly Network, Dgraph Labs, Facebook, Gatsby, GraphZen, Hasura, IBM, Intuit, Neo4j, Novvum, PayPal, Pipefy, Salsify, Solo.io and Thicit are joining as members to advance GraphQL as an industry specification for designing more effective APIs.

    GraphQL powers hundreds of billions of API calls a day at Facebook, which developed the technology in 2012 and played an integral role in helping GraphQL join the Linux Foundation last year. Today, virtually every major programming language offers GraphQL support through a variety of open source software libraries.

  • Announcing The Linux Kernel Mentorship project on CommunityBridge, a new Linux Foundation platform

    When Jim Zemlin asked me to come to the Linux Foundation as a Linux Fellow to work on mentoring programs and initiatives to make Linux secure I didn’t have to think twice. I am very excited to be working at the Linux Foundation alongside talented and dedicated individuals on initiatives near and dear to my heart. It is a unique and special opportunity to share my knowledge and passion by helping aspiring developers discover the joy of being a part of the largest open source project in the world.

    Contributing to the Linux kernel and working in open source is my passion. It is an honor to be a contributor to the software that influences and touches everybody in the world whether they know it or not. Being a part of something that has changed the way we communicate, conduct business, learn, and interact with each other is something that myself and thousands of developers worldwide share with pride as part of the Linux community.

    My journey as a Linux Kernel contributor started as a fun experiment to help take Android code and make it part of the core Linux project. I loved the experience of being part of the community and started looking for more opportunities to engage with it. When Greg Kroah-Hartman was looking for volunteers to help him with the stable release maintenance activities, I signed up.

    [...]

    Since joining the Linux Foundation, I have been working to build out a new mentoring initiative. Today I am excited to announce our new Linux Kernel Mentorship Program on CommunityBridge, a platform that will bring opportunities for new developers to join and learn from our community and improve it at the same time.

  • Cloud Native Computing Foundation Surpasses 375 Members

    The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which sustains and integrates open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, today announced that 59 new members and end user supporters have joined the Foundation.

    The industry is reaching an inflection point where cloud native technologies are not only being developed at a record pace, but many are becoming mature offerings. As the Foundation crosses the 375 member mark, open source leaders are meeting this week at the Linux Foundation’s Open Source Leadership Summit, continuing to foster innovation, growth and partnerships among the leaders and corporations working in open technology development.

    “Crossing the 375 mark is an incredible milestone for the Foundation, especially with more than 75 organizations in our end user community” said Dan Kohn, executive director of Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “Companies like NVIDIA, MemSQL and Mattermost are reaping real value from cloud native technologies, and we only expect this to accelerate as these technologies mature and solidify their place in the market. We remain impressed by the technical innovation and growth in the ecosystem and are happy to work with our members to support the thriving cloud native community.”

  • The Linux Foundation Announces New Foundation to Support Continuous Delivery Collaboration

    The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, announces a new foundation for the diverse continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) space. The Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) will serve as the vendor-neutral home for the most important open source projects for continuous delivery and specifications to expedite the release pipeline process. CDF will foster collaboration between the industry’s top developers, end users, and vendors to evangelize CI/CD and DevOps methodologies, define/document best practices, provide guidelines, and create training materials to enable any software development team around the world to implement CI/CD best practices.

    The first projects to be hosted by the CDF will include Jenkins, an open source CI/CD system, Jenkins X, an open source CI/CD solution on Kubernetes, Spinnaker, an open source multi-cloud CD solution, and Tekton, an open source project and specification for CI/CD components. Additional projects are expected to join CDF through its soon to be formed Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) with the focus of bringing together the CD ecosystem to build specifications and projects around portability and interoperability.

  • Continuous Delivery Foundation Launches to Advance Development

    The Linux Foundation has long positioned itself to be the home for big open-source collaborative efforts. On March 12, the list of efforts hosted by the Linux Foundation is set to grow with the launch of the new Continuous Delivery Foundation and the integration of the Open JS Foundation.

    The Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) brings together the most popular open-source continuous integration/continuous development (CI/CD) projects, including Jenkins and Spinaker, under an open multi-stakeholder governance model. The Open JS Foundation, on the hand, is a merger of the Node.js and JS Foundation groups, bringing the two efforts together to help advance the state JavaScript frameworks.

    "CD encompasses both integration and delivery especially given the recent industry trend of shifting left—that is, catching problems early in the software lifecycle before code hits production," Chris Aniszczyk, vice president of developer relations for the Linux Foundation and CTO of Cloud Native Computing Foundation, told eWEEK.

    CI/CD has become a leading trend in development in recent years, with developers building and deploying code in an integrated workflow that is often referred to as DevOps. With CI/CD and DevOps, rather than code development being a siloed effort, development flows through to deployment and operations, enabling faster outcomes.

          High performance computing: Nvidia compra Mellanox per 6,9 miliardi di dollari      Cache   Translate Page      

Nvidia e Mellanox sono protagoniste di un accordo da quasi sette miliardi di dollari che impatterà in modo determinante sul mercato globale dell’high performance computing.

In base all’accordo Nvidia acquisterà tutte le azioni ordinarie emesse e in circolazione di Mellanox per 125 dollari per azione in contanti, per un valore totale di impresa di circa 6,9 miliardi di dollari.

La piattaforma di calcolo Nvidia e le interconnessioni di Mellanox alimentano una buona metà dei 500 principali supercomputer del mondo e hanno come clienti tutti i principali fornitori di servizi cloud e produttori di computer.

Come riporta una nota di Nvidia, l’adozione dell’elaborazione accelerata con le GPU Nvidia e le soluzioni di rete intelligenti di Mellanox è motivata da una domanda di calcolo in aumento, dal rallentamento dei progressi delle prestazioni delle CPU con la fine della legge di Moore.

L’intensità dei dati e dei carichi di lavoro moderni nell’intelligenza artificiale, nell’elaborazione scientifica e nell’analisi dei dati è infatti in crescita esponenziale e ha comportato enormi richieste di prestazioni sui data center aziendali.

I datacenter del futuro saranno progettati come enormi motori di calcolo con decine di migliaia di nodi di elaborazione, progettati in modo olistico con le loro interconnessioni per prestazioni ottimali.

Mellanox è stata pioniera della tecnologia di interconnessione InfiniBand, che insieme ai suoi prodotti Ethernet ad alta velocità è ora utilizzata in oltre la metà dei supercomputer più veloci del mondo e in molti dei principali centri dati iperscalabili.

Con Mellanox, Nvidia ottimizzerà i carichi di lavoro sull’intero stack di computing, networking e storage per ottenere prestazioni più elevate, maggiore utilizzo e minori costi operativi per i clienti.

Le due aziende hanno una lunga storia di collaborazione e innovazione congiunta, che si riflettono nei loro recenti contributi alla costruzione dei due supercomputer più veloci del mondo, Sierra e Summit, gestiti dal Dipartimento dell’Energia degli Stati Uniti.

Molti dei principali fornitori di servizi cloud al mondo utilizzano GPU Nvidia e interconnessioni Mellanox.

Fondata nel 1999, Mellanox Technologies ha sede a Sunnyvale, in California, e Yokneam, in Israele.

Una volta completata l’acquisizione Nvidia intende continuare a investire nella ricerca in Israele. Le vendite e l’assistenza clienti non cambieranno in seguito a questa transazione.

          Raja Koduri Discusses Leaving AMD for Intel in Interview      Cache   Translate Page      
In an interview with Barron's, Intel Chief Architect, Senior Vice President and GM - Cores & Visual Computing & Edge Computing Solutions, Raja Koduri, discusses the reasons why he left AMD to work at Intel, recruiting Jim Keller, and his 4,500 person graphics team at Intel. Raja Koduri had a vision and he felt that the only company that had the people, assets, and resources to create it was Intel. He recruited Jim Keller with a phone call and discussions about future opportunities at Intel over the next 10 years. The last part of the interview covers his team at Intel and how Intel's roadmap will have the complete product stack from the CPU to the GPU to accelerate AI. We also have a very rich [AI] accelerator road map. So when the AI really hits the [growth] curve, I believe that we are the only company that will have the full stack of products that cover all the needs from low-power use cases to mega-data-center use cases. We have a really good portfolio of assets. We also have doubled down on the software investments.... So we have a comprehensive AI strategy, and we are excited about the direction we are going there.

          PLuGHiTz Live - Special Events (Video): Humanscale makes the laptop better with the M/Connect docking station      Cache   Translate Page      
Description

Many of us use a laptop for both portable and stationary computing. When we're at a desk, we tend to want more than a laptop offers naturally. For example, you may want extra monitors, or maybe just a larger screen. You may want a better keyboard, and almost certainly want a real mouse. All of that makes a laptop docking station appealing, but there is a problem with docks: all of the cables on the desk running in and out of the dock. Humanscale has a simple yet elegant solution to the problem with the M/Connect docking station.

While a traditional docking station sits on top of the desk and has all of your standard cables plugged into it, like HDMI, keyboard, mouse, printer, etc., the M/Connect is different. It actually mounts around the edge of the desk and uses a split design. This setup allows for the bottom piece to feature all of the permanent cables, meaning that they are hidden beneath the desk. The top piece features ports for your more transient hardware, like flash drives, portable hard drives, and biometric sensors. Now you have the convenience of a laptop dock without the clutter of cables taking up a large portion of your desk space.

In addition to the clever split design, the M/Connect is designed to be paired with one of the company's monitor stands. In fact, it can be used with any of the company's monitor arms, whether it be designed for a single screen or a full 6 screen array. The post of the monitor arm runs through the center of the M/Connect, keeping the dock snugly in place and adding extra stability to the arm's connection. It is a win-win situation.

The M/Connect is available now in a variety of configurations.

          Quantization and the Resolvent Algebra. (arXiv:1903.04819v1 [math.FA])      Cache   Translate Page      

Authors: Teun D.H. van Nuland

We introduce a novel commutative C*-algebra of functions on a symplectic vector space admitting a complex structure, along with a strict deformation quantization that maps a dense subalgebra to the resolvent algebra introduced by Buchholz and Grundling \cite{BG2008}. The associated quantization map is a field-theoretical Weyl quantization compatible with the work of Binz, Honegger and Rieckers \cite{BHR}. We also define a Berezin-type quantization map on the whole C*-algebra, which continuously and bijectively maps it onto the resolvent algebra.

This C*-algebra, generally defined on a real inner product space X, intimately depends on the finite dimensional subspaces of X. We thoroughly analyze the structure and applicability of this algebra in the finite dimensional case by giving a characterization of its elements and by computing its Gelfand spectrum.


          Energy level splitting for weakly interacting bosons in a harmonic trap. (arXiv:1903.04974v1 [cond-mat.quant-gas])      Cache   Translate Page      

Authors: Ben Craps, Marine De Clerck, Oleg Evnin, Surbhi Khetrapal

We consider identical quantum bosons with weak contact interactions in a two-dimensional isotropic harmonic trap. When the interactions are turned off, the energy levels are equidistant and highly degenerate. At linear order in the coupling parameter, these degenerate levels split, and we study the patterns of this splitting. It turns out that the problem is mathematically identical to diagonalizing the quantum resonant system of the two-dimensional Gross-Pitaevskii equation, whose classical counterpart has been previously studied in the mathematical literature on turbulence. Enhanced symmetry structures are known for this resonant system, and our purpose is to report on powerful implications these symmetries have for the level splitting in the quantum case. In particular, the symmetries relate energy shifts of different unperturbed levels so that infinitely many exactly integer energy differences survive at linear order in the interaction strength. The highest energy state emanating from each unperturbed level is explicitly described by our analytics. Considerable simplifications in computing the spectrum numerically result from exploiting the symmetries. We furthermore discuss the energy level spacing distributions in the spirit of quantum chaos theory. After separating the eigenvalues into blocks with respect to the known conservation laws, we observe the Wigner-Dyson statistics within such individual blocks, which suggests that no integrable structures beyond the symmetries we display should be expected in the problem.

          Comment on Computing in 128 Characters: Winners of the 2018 Wolfram Employees One-Liner Competition by Jon McLoone      Cache   Translate Page      
Well that's embarrassing! It certainly wasn't in my mind when I wrote my entry and I have no recollection of that past entry, though I would have looked at the blog at the time - I wasn't at the technology conference that year. In my defense, if you look at what they are trying to achieve, that is quite different, even if that code structure is rather similar. Dynamic[i=fn[i]] is a pretty standard trick to make a refreshing notebook element, that neither of us can take much credit for. But Michael Sollami is using the network as his fn to inject randomness by using NetInitialize to create, effectively, a random image filter each time. It is really a structured random walk through image space. What I was trying to do was to use a fixed network to iterate towards a fixed point of i==fn[i] in a similar way to my blog from 2010: https://blog.wolfram.com/2010/09/07/self-description/ I had in mind "can we extract the essential pattern from the randomness by refining the image to its key features". If you set the image size to 256, it does do that, but it turned out to be much more boring to watch than the constant zooming effect you get from using a 300px image. so I submitted that instead.
          6 Steps To Improve An Internship      Cache   Translate Page      
1)      LinkedIn is your best friend – use it! Don’t get me wrong, LinkedIn isn’t Facebook so don’t use it to have a moan about your morning commute; but don’t be afraid to reach out to those within your chosen field and make some useful connections, check GRB's Graduate Guide to LinkedIn. During and after your internship, make sure to connect not only with those within the company, but also your fellow interns as you may want to reach out to them further down the line. Building up a healthy bank of industry contacts will come in handy during the post-graduate job search and is also useful for tracking the career development of those you may wish to follow.   2)      No task is beneath you When I was asked to do the washing up after a meeting with clients, refusing was an idea that never crossed my mind as I respected my role as an intern and recognised that every task I could take on was a help to the team. Being an intern is not always glamorous and you may not get responsibilities from day one but showing enthusiasm and initiative towards the smallest of tasks will highlight you has a reliable and passionate team player. 3)      Show initiative You will have to find a balance between confidence and reservation, but it always pays to show you’ve gone the extra mile to pick up skills and even propose ideas. Whether this means taking notes, writing a journal that can be referred back to so you don’t have to ask for instructions again or even working through your lunch break to make sure every task is completed. 4)      Do your research Look online to source information about the environment you are about to enter. You may find information such as the expected dress code or even what tasks you may be asked to complete, but also research things such as the values and character traits the company looks for in potential employees. If you’re in doubt about anything, make sure to get in contact before you start and always remember to begin with an open mind and to form judgements based on your own experiences. 5)      Use the skills you already have Maybe you have an advanced knowledge of computing or a keen eye for design, so always voice these skills and offer to put them to use to help the team; the goal is to leave a lasting impression and companies will remember these individual traits. The best interns are the those able to progress from receiving instructions to completing tasks individually and to a high standard using initiative, skill and a passion. These personal skills (read more about Graduate Skills)  are the key to accessing this level of independent success. 6)      Remember those you’re working for have been in your position too – so ask questions! There is a vast bank of knowledge right at your fingertips so make sure to find out everything you can that will help you with your career as well as with university. Find out are what degrees your peers have, their experience of life after graduation (did they travel or study more/how long did it take to find the right job), what companies they’ve previously worked for and even secure some interview tips from the experts! The most important information to get is how you can develop as an individual so always ask for feedback when the internship is over.   If you enjoyed this blog, make sure you don't miss out on last weeks blog (International Women’s Day – Leading Women). Or if you're interested in reading more about Internships, read our blog Ultimate Guide to Surviving an Internship / Job in Germany.

1.3.5.1 Недостатки Сквозного Тестирования

“Любое преимущество от общения с настоящей системой затмевается необходимостью искоренять недетерминизм” Мартин Фаулер (Martin Fowler).

Сквозное Тестирование — практика, при которой большое число автоматизированных сквозных и ручных регрессионных тестов используются во время сборки вместе с малым количеством автоматизированных модульных и приемочных тестов. Соотношение тестов в Сквозном Тестировании можно визуализировать в виде Рожка Мороженого.



Сквозное Тестирование часто кажется привлекательным из-за субъективных преимуществ сквозных тестов:

  1. Сквозной тест максимизирует System Under Tests, что предполагает высокую степень покрытия тестами;
  2. Сквозной тест использует саму систему в качестве тестового клиента, что предполагает низкие затраты на тестовую инфраструктуру.

          Constructing mass-decorrelated hadronic decay taggers in ATLAS      Cache   Translate Page      
A large number of physics processes as seen by ATLAS at the LHC manifest as collimated, hadronic sprays of particles known as ‘jets’. Jets originating from the hadronic decay of a massive particle are commonly used in searches for both measurements of the Standard Model and searches for new physics. The ATLAS experiment has employed machine learning discriminants to the challenging task of identifying the origin of a given jet, but such multivariate classifiers exhibit strong non-linear correlations with the invariant mass of the jet, complicating many analyses which wish to make use of the mass spectrum. Adversarially trained neural networks (ANN) are presented as a way to construct mass-decorrelated jet classifiers by jointly training two networks in a domain-adversarial fashion. The use of neural networks further allows this method to benefit from high-performance computing platforms for fast development. A comprehensive study of different mass-decorrelation techniques is performed in ATLAS simulated datasets, comparing ANNs to designed decorrelated taggers (DDT), fixed-efficiency k-NN regression, convolved substructure (CSS), and adaptive boosting for uniform efficiency (uBoost). Performance is evaluated using metrics for background jet rejection and mass-decorrelation.
          Hardware Accelerated ATLAS Workloads on the WLCG      Cache   Translate Page      
In recent years the usage of machine learning techniques within data-intensive sciences in general and high-energy physics in particular has rapidly increased, in part due to the availability of large datasets on which such algorithms can be trained as well as suitable hardware, such as graphics or tensor processing units which greatly accelerate the training and execution of such algorithms. Within the HEP domain, the development of these techniques has so far relied on resources external to the primary computing infrastructure of the WLCG. In this paper we present an integration of hardware-accelerated workloads into the Grid through the declaration of dedicated queues with access to hardware accelerators and the use of linux container images holding a modern data science software stack. A frequent use-case of in the development of machine learning algorithms is the optimization of neural networks through the tuning of their hyper parameters. For this often a large range of network variations must be trained and compared, which for some optimization schemes can be performed in parallel -- a workload well suited for grid computing. An example of such a hyper-parameter scan on Grid resources for the case of Flavor Tagging within ATLAS is presented.
          A Scalable Near-Memory Architecture for Training Deep Neural Networks on Large In-Memory Datasets      Cache   Translate Page      
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 $7times$7× over previously published results; (ii) an optimized IEEE 754 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 $2.7times$2.7× energy efficiency improvement of NTX over contemporary GPUs at $4.4times$4.4× less silicon area, and a compute performance of 1.2 Tflop/s for trainin- large state-of-the-art networks with full floating-point precision. At the data center scale, a mesh of NTX achieves above 95 percent parallel and energy efficiency, while providing $2.1times$2.1× energy savings or $3.1times$3.1× performance improvement over a GPU-based system.
          GDP: A Greedy Based Dynamic Power Budgeting Method for Multi/Many-Core Systems in Dark Silicon      Cache   Translate Page      
Dark silicon phenomenon is significant in today's multi/many-core systems manufactured using new generation technology. In order to enhance performance of dark silicon systems, power budget constrained dynamic optimizations are performed in various ways including dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS) and task scheduling. However, power budgets given by existing methods are generally over pessimistic, which greatly limit the capability of dynamic performance optimization methods. In order to resolve this problem, we propose a dynamic power budgeting method, called Greedy based Dynamic Power (GDP). Different from existing methods, which are steady state based and ignore active core distributions, GDP formulates the power budgeting problem as a thermal-constrained combinational power optimization problem. To efficiently solve this problem, we propose two new ideas: first, we transform the original power-optimization problem to an easier solving temperature-optimization problem; second, we employ a more efficient greedy based algorithm that finds a sub-optimal active core distribution which maximizes power budget. The new method can consider current temperature states and transient thermal effects, which were ignored by existing methods. Both theoretical studies and experimental results show that GDP outperforms existing methods by providing a higher and less pessimistic power budget with low computing cost and guaranteed thermal safety.
          Secure Tensor Decomposition for Big Data Using Transparent Computing Paradigm      Cache   Translate Page      
The exponential growth of big data places a great burden on current computing environment. However, there exists a vast gap in the approaches that can securely and efficiently process the large scale heterogeneous data. This paper, on the basis of transparent computing paradigm, presents a unified approach that coordinates the transparent servers and transparent clients to decompose tensor, a mathematical model widely used in data intensive applications, to a core tensor multiplied with a number of truncated orthogonal bases. The structured, semi-structured as well as structured data are transformed to low-order sub-tensors, which are then encrypted using the Paillier homomorphic encryption scheme on the transparent clients. The cipher sub-tensors are transported to the transparent servers for carrying out the integration and decomposition operations. Three secure decomposition algorithms, namely secure bidiagonalization algorithm, secure singular value decomposition algorithm, and secure mode product algorithm, are presented to generate the bidiagonal matrices, truncated orthogonal bases, and core tensor respectively. The homomorphic operations of the three algorithms are carried out on the transparent servers, while the non-homomorphic operations, namely division and square root, are performed on the transparent clients. Experimental results indicate that the proposed method is promising for secure tensor decomposition for big data.
          Towards Hardware IIR Filters Computing Just Right: Direct Form I Case Study      Cache   Translate Page      
Linear Time Invariant (LTI) filters are often specified and simulated using high-precision software, before being implemented in low-precision fixed-point hardware. A problem is that the hardware does not behave exactly as the simulation due to quantization and rounding issues. This article advocates the construction of LTI architectures that behave as if the computation was performed with infinite accuracy, then converted to the low-precision output format with an error smaller than its least significant bit. This simple specification guarantees the numerical quality of the hardware, even for critical LTI systems. Besides, it is possible to derive the optimal values of all the internal data formats that ensure that the specification is met. This requires a detailed error analysis that captures not only the quantization and rounding errors, but also their infinite accumulation in recursive filters. This generic methodology is detailed for the case of low-precision LTI filters in the Direct Form I implemented in FPGA logic. It is demonstrated by a fully automated and open-source architecture generator tool, and validated on a range of Infinite Impulse Response filters.
          An STT-MRAM Based in Memory Architecture for Low Power Integral Computing      Cache   Translate Page      
The integral histogram image plays an important role in accelerating the feature computation in vision algorithms. However, the computational process of the integral histogram, called integral computation, has high computational complexity and numerous memory access operations, which limit its wide application. This brief proposes an in-memory computational architecture based on Spin Transfer Torque Magnetic Random Access Memory (STT-MRAM) to solve these problems. The architecture can work in two different modes depending on the requirements: the integral computation mode and the memory mode. The architecture can figure out the integral histogram when in the integral computation mode, and just store the data directly when in the memory mode. Utilizing the non-volatile, high density and low power characteristics of STT-MRAM, we integrate the computational units into the memory array to achieve parallel computation. Reduced number of data transmission between storage units and computation units contributes to cut down the latency and energy consumption. The evaluation results show that, comparing with the state-of-the-art work, our architecture provides $1.1times sim 9times$1.1×9× performance improvements and reduces 87.4 $sim$ 97.3 percent energy consumption for $64times 64sim 512times 512$64×64512×512 size images, just with a 8 percent area overhead.

So you have some code and it is in a bounded context with a REST API. You are on your way to Microservices. Next you wrap it in a container and now it is an image that others can run. Simple. Now what? No service is an island. Your service needs to log information, needs to scale and load balance between its clones. Your service needs environment and metadata way outside its context. What about where the service will run? Who starts it? What monitors its health? What about antifragility? Updates? Networking? Oh my. Services live in clusters and clusters live in data centers. Many concepts overlap with the features of cloud management. But don't get too flustered since, fundamentally, services are managed by clusters. There are several approaches to cluster management such as Docker Swarm, Mesos with Marathon and Kubernetes.

Project xCloud, el servicio de juegos en streaming de Xbox, llegará en forma de beta

Una de las tendencias que estamos empezando a ver eclosionar en el mundo de los videojueos es de los juegos en la nube. Si antes era necesario tener un disco físico o un archivo instalado en la memoria de la consola, el futuro parece pasar por jugarlo en streaming, lo que se traduce en dos cosas. Por un lado, no será necesario tener un equipo potente para poder jugar en máxima calidad, sino que bastará con una buena conexión a Internet. Por otro lado, los juegos saltarán de las consolas a cualquier plataforma.

Esto, que suena a ciencia ficción, no lo es tanto. Google, Electronic Arts, Ubisoft y Microsoft ya han anunciado estar trabajando en sus alternativas y, de hecho, esta última es la que nos ocupa hoy, puesto que ha dado una fecha aproximada de cuándo podremos acceder a Project xCloud. Se trata de su propia plataforma de juegos en streaming, que permite jugar a un título como Forza Horizon 4 desde cualquier smartphone por Internet. Lo presentaron en octubre del año pasado y, según Microsoft, las primeras betas públicas llegarán a finales de año.

"No es un reemplazo para las consolas"

De acuerdo a Microsoft, desde la presentación del servicio en octubre de 2018, han estado "trabajando duro" para "lanzar las primeras betas públicas a finales de este año". Eso es posible gracias a que la industria se encuentra en un "punto de inflexión", en el sentido de que "se puede ofrecer una experiencia de calidad de consola con la infraestructura de nube, contenido y comunidad que hay actualmente".

Como ya mencionaron durante la presentación de Project xCloud, el dispositivo, en nuestro caso un móvil, solo será el reproductor de contenido, pero todo el trabajo se hará en la nube, que es una forma sencilla de decir en los servidores de Microsoft. La empresa tiene 54 centros de datos Azure repartidos a lo ancho y largo del globo, por lo que, en cierto modo, los juegos en streaming serán similares a un Netflix interactivo. El contenido está en la red y el usuario solo lo descarga y reproduce.

El móvil será un simple reproductor de contenido, puesto que todo el procesado se hará en la nube

Esto, dicen desde la compañía, no está siendo desarrollado como un "sustituto para las videoconsolas", sino como una sistema para "ofrecer el mismo número de opciones y la versatilidad" que actualmente se ofrece en el sector de la música y el cine. El ejemplo lo tenemos en Netflix y Spotify, cuyo catálogo es el mismo para cualquier plataforma, sea móvil, TV, consola o escritorio. Evidentemente, Project xCloud será compatible con títulos exclusivos de Xbox y PC. Cabe esperar que el resto de empresas hagan algo parecido con los suyos.

Sobre la compatibilidad del servicio, Microsoft dice que "el gaming con calidad de consola estará disponible en dispositivos móviles" y que lo ofrecerá "a más de 2.000 millones de jugadores de todo el mundo". En otras palabras, parece que no será algo restringido a ciertas marcas y que se abrirá a más móviles, aunque durante la presentación de octubre se dijo que los terminales de Samsung serían los primeros en poder acceder.

Así pues, ya tenemos una fecha de lanzamiento estimada: finales de 2019. Tendremos que esperar hasta entonces para ver cómo funciona el servicio, cómo han solucionado el problema de la latencia sin utilizar la red 5G y cuál es la experiencia real. Lo siguiente que tenemos en el calendario es la presentación de Google en la Gamer Developer Conference, donde se espera que presenten su servicio de juegos en la nube o algún tipo de dispositivo relacionado.

          Huawei P30 Pro Stops By Antutu Revealing Its Key Specifications      Cache   Translate Page      

Huawei will soon launch another lineup of flagship smartphones which will carry the P30 branding. The upcoming devices will supersede the P20 lineup from yesteryear and like their predecessors will have a focus on photography. The company is expected to launch three smartphones under the P30 branding which include the P30 Pro, the standard P30 and the P30 Lite. The upcoming devices have been subjected to several leaks in the past which revealed some features about them including a camera with 10x optical zoom capabilities. A Huawei smartphone with top notch features has been spotted on the benchmarking website, Antutu uncovering its key specifications.

Specifications and Benchmark Scores

The freshly listed Huawei smartphone on Antutu website carries the model number “VOG-L29” which is assumed to be the P30 Pro due to its top tier specifications. The device records a score of 286152 point which is slightly lesser than its cousin, the Mate 20 Pro. However, this score can vary depending on the software. Therefore, the company can give the numbers a boost with an optimised update.

The Antutu listing reveals that the smartphone runs on the latest Android 9 which is destined to be skinned with EMUI. The device is kitted with the HiSilicon Kirin 980 chipset which consists of an Octa-Core CPU and the Mali G76-MP10 GPU. Praiseworthy, the chipset is manufactured using a 7 nm fabrication process which results in a highly power efficient computing chip. In terms of memory and storage, the handset has 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of inbuilt storage. However, Huawei is expected to launch the smartphone in other storage variants as well. The resolution of the device’s display is 2340 x 1080 px which will result in a sharp and blur-free output. Other details including the resolution of the cameras, battery capacity and price of the smartphone will only be broadcasted once the company officially unveils it. 

Huawei P30 Lineup Launch Date

The Huawei P30 lineup is set to unveil at a launch event on the 26th of February which will be held in Paris, France. India launch of the smartphones is expected to follow soon after their European launch.

  • David Rheinsberg: Goodbye Gnu-EFI!

    The recommended way to link UEFI applications on linux was until now through GNU-EFI, a toolchain provided by the GNU Project that bridges from the ELF world into COFF/PE32+. But why don’t we compile directly to native UEFI? A short dive into the past of GNU Toolchains, its remnants, and a surprisingly simple way out.

    The Linux World (and many UNIX Derivatives for that matter) is modeled around ELF. With statically linked languages becoming more prevalent, the impact of the ABI diminishes, but it still defines properties far beyond just how to call functions. The ABI your system uses also effects how compiler and linker interact, how binaries export information (especially symbols), and what features application developers can make use of. We have become used to ELF, and require its properties in places we didn’t expect.

  • GNUnet 0.11.0 released

    We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.11.0.

    This is a major release after about five years of development. In terms of usability, users should be aware that there are still a large number of known open issues in particular with respect to ease of use, but also some critical privacy issues especially for mobile users. Also, the nascent network is tiny (about 200 peers) and thus unlikely to provide good anonymity or extensive amounts of interesting information. As a result, the 0.11.0 release is still only suitable for early adopters with some reasonable pain tolerance.

  • Open source database company MongoDB is giving up on an important battle in its fight against the major cloud computing providers

    After a months-long fight to get a stamp of approval from the Open Source Initiative, MongoDB is withdrawing from the process of having its controversial new software license approved to be called open source.

  • Considering Fresh C Extensions

    Matthew Wilcox recently realized there might be a value in depending on C extensions provided by the Plan 9 variant of the C programming language. All it would require is using the -fplan9-extensions command-line argument when compiling the kernel. As Matthew pointed out, Plan 9 extensions have been supported in GCC as of version 4.6, which is the minimum version supported by the kernel. So theoretically, there would be no conflict.

    Nick Desaulniers felt that any addition of -f compiler flags to any project always would need careful consideration. Depending on what the extensions are needed for, they could be either helpful or downright dangerous.

    In the current case, Matthew wanted to use the Plan 9 extensions to shave precious bytes off of a cyclic memory allocation that needed to store a reference to the "next" value. Using the extensions, Matthew said, he could embed the "next" value without breaking various existing function calls.

    Nick also suggested making any such extension dependencies optional, so that other compilers would continue to be able to compile the kernel.

    It seems like I have not decide yet which project am I going to create next so why not just work on another python solution on CodeWars in this chapter. I think I will work on a few more python questions in the next few chapters before starting a brand new python project.

  • GCC 9 will come with improved diagnostics, simpler C++ errors and much more

    The team added a left-hand margin that shows line numbers. GCC9 now has a new look for the diagnostics. The diagnostics can label regions of the source code in order to show relevant information. The diagnostics come with left-hand and right-hand sides of the “+” operator, so GCC highlights them inline. The team has added a JSON output format such that GCC 9 now has a machine-readable output format for diagnostics.

          Explore Amazon's wide Washington reach      Cache   Translate Page      

Amazon lobbied more federal entities last year than any other public U.S. company, pressing its case throughout the government at a time when its power and reach is under a magnifying glass.

Data: Federal lobbying disclosures; Get the data; Interactive: Lazaro Gamio/Axios

Why it matters: The sprawling nature of Amazon’s lobbying operation is a reflection of its vast business. What began as an online retailer is now a behemoth that touches healthcare, cloud computing, media and the transportation sector — and the regulatory challenges it faces are just as complex.


The bottom line: In its filings last year, Amazon disclosed lobbying 40 different federal entities on 21 different general issue areas.

  • Amazon's total number of federal entities lobbied was higher than any other public company's, according to data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics. (The group's totals also include forms filed by individual outside lobbyists on behalf of the companies.)
  • Among public companies, Amazon ranked below Alphabet, Bayer, DowDuPont and Parker Hannifin on the total number of issues lobbied, according to the group's data.
  • Yes, but: The issue codes used in Amazon — and everyone else's — lobbying disclosure are very broad, often encompassing several major issues in one category. And there can be discrepancies in how different companies fill out their disclosure forms.

Methodology: Every quarter, Amazon must file a form listing every federal entity it contacted on different issues. This graphic shows 518 different disclosures made by Amazon last year across four different quarters, organized on one side by type of issue and on the other by the type of entity lobbied.

  • For example: When Amazon talked to the U.S. Senate about transportation in all four quarters, it generated four entries.
  • That does not mean Amazon only talked to someone in the Senate about transportation four times. Each quarterly disclosure could indicate repeated contacts.

The big picture: Of course, Amazon advocates on a host of traditional tech and telecom issues, like net neutrality and data breach standards. It has also been locked in a battle with competitors over a Pentagon cloud computing contract. But its lobbying records also show a company with interests in regulatory fights around food, drugs and transportation.

  • Amazon lobbied last year on self-driving car and drone issues, a sign of its investments in autonomous delivery of customers' packages.
  • A growing player in the grocery business, Amazon lobbied on a forthcoming pilot program to allow online grocers to participate in the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, as well as on the standard for labeling bioengineered food.
  • It advocated around a law that banned "gag clauses" that had prevented pharmacists from telling patients when paying cash would be cheaper than using their insurance. Amazon bought the online pharmacy PillPack in 2018.

"When you put all these data points together, [Amazon] looks like a giant squid with many arms busy reconfiguring nearly every corner of our economy — and our laws. This is one reason monopoly power is a problem," said Stacy Mitchell of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance and a prominent critic of the company.

  • "Left unchecked, these giant corporations inevitably begin to govern us. It should be the other way around."

Amazon's statement: Amazon provides a wide range of products and services for our customers, and we’re always looking for ways to innovate on their behalf. Our Washington, D.C. team is focused on ensuring we are advocating on issues that are important to policymakers, our employees and our customers.”

          Así luce Forza Horizon 4 de Xbox One en el móvil con Project xCloud, el servicio de Microsoft que llegará a finales de año      Cache   Translate Page      

Así luce Forza Horizon 4 de Xbox One en el móvil con Project xCloud, el servicio de Microsoft que llegará a finales de año#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Project xCloud es el servicio de Microsoft que promete la experiencia y fluidez de una Xbox en dispositivos móviles y tablets. El propio Satya Nadella ya lo ha calificado como "el Netflix de los videojuegos" y prometen que gracias a este servicio de streaming de juegos se dará acceso a mucha más gente a esas experiencias "triple A".

Desde Microsoft, aprovechando el reciente Inside Xbox, han dado a conocer nuevos detalles de Project xCloud, entre ellos la fecha aproximada de lanzamiento y más llamativo todavía, una demo real que muestra cómo funcionará. En concreto nos han enseñado Forza Horizon 4, en su versión de Xbox One, corriendo sobre en un móvil Android y conectado a un mando de Xbox One.

Antes de cerrar el año 2019, Microsoft anuncia que se iniciarán las primeras pruebas públicas. Llegará por tanto considerablemente por detrás de PlayStation Now y el propio Xbox Game Pass, aunque en este caso su objetivo es trasladar la experiencia de las consolas más potentes a los dispositivos móviles. Más parecido a lo que Microsoft quiere ofrecernos es GeForce Now de NVIDIA y Project Stream de Google, que con toda probabilidad será presentado el próximo 19 de marzo.

Así se ven juegos triple A en un móvil Android

La demostración de Forza Horizon 4 ejecutándose a través de Project xCloud. Pese a que en la demo se hace uso de un mando de Xbox One conectado por bluetooth, previamente ya se indicó que el servicio de streaming también utilizará las pantallas táctiles para los controles, por lo que no sería estrictamente necesario este mando.

Mientras que el juego se reproduce en la pantalla del móvil, todo el trabajo se hará en la nube. Esto es clave, ya que de otra manera el hardware del dispositivo móvil no podría afrontar por si solo toda la potencia que requieren estos juegos.

Como vemos en la demostración, se aprecia algo de lag. Habrá que esperar para comprobar si es debido a la red, si ocurre solo con algunos juegos o si es algo puntual. Hasta finales de año no podremos determinar cuál es la calidad ofrecida del servicio, pero tener juegos exclusivos de Xbox y PC en el móvil es un deseo de miles de jugadores desde hace muchos años.

Un pequeño problema con la latencia que con la llegada del 5G podría verse solucionado. En este sentido Azure y sus 54 servidores exclusivos tendrán un papel importante, aunque en su día ya comentaron que Project xCloud se podría utilizar con conexiones Wi-Fi y conexiones 4G.

Como recuerdan nuestros compañeros de Xataka Móvil, durante la presentación de octubre también se dijo que los terminales Samsung serían los primeros en poder acceder a este servicio de streaming, aunque no parece que esté restringido a ciertas marcas y finalmente todos los móviles que cumplan ciertos requisitos deberían poder utilizarse.

Como explica Microsoft en un comunicado:

Estamos desarrollando Project xCloud no como un reemplazo para las consolas de juegos, sino como una manera de proporcionar la misma opción y versatilidad que los amantes de la música y los vídeos disfrutan hoy en día. Estamos agregando más formas de jugar juegos de Xbox.

Nos encanta lo que es posible cuando una consola está conectada a un televisor 4K con soporte completo de HDR y sonido envolvente, que sigue siendo una manera fantástica de experimentar los juegos de consola. También creemos dar a los jugadores el control de decidir cuándo y cómo jugar.

Tendremos que esperar pues a finales de este año para poder probarlo por nosotros mismos, aunque en la demostración de Forza Horizon 4 ya se deja entrever las posibilidades de los servicios de streaming de juegos como Project xCloud.

          Google has told dozens of employees in its laptop and tablet division to find new jobs at the company, raising questions about its hardware plans (GOOG, GOOGL)      Cache   Translate Page      

Rick Osterloh

  • Google appears to be trimming the size of its laptop and tablet hardware group, telling dozens of engineers and program managers to find other roles with the Alphabet parent company, several people familiar with the matter told Business Insider.
  • The restructuring involves Google's Create division, which is responsible for developing and manufacturing the Pixelbook laptop and the Pixel Slate tablet among the company's wider swath of "Made by Google" products.
  • One source said that the Create hardware team had a "bunch of stuff in the works" and that cutting the number of hardware engineers and program managers on the team would most likely "pare down the portfolio" of products.
  • Affected employees have been instructed to seek temporary roles within other Google or Alphabet teams, raising questions about Google's future hardware plans.

Google has moved dozens of employees out of its laptop and tablet division, scaling back the size of its in-house hardware group as it reassesses product plans in the fiercely competitive computer market.

Dozens of Google employees working on the company's Create team — an internal hardware division responsible for developing and manufacturing Google's laptop and tablet products — have been told to find new projects within Google or its parent company Alphabet amid what sources describe as "road-map cutbacks."

Among the affected employees who were given notice of the cutbacks in the past two weeks are hardware engineers, technical program managers, and those who support program managers. Sources say that projects have been canceled within the laptop and tablet division, prompting the changes, but that team members have been instructed to find new roles temporarily within Google or Alphabet.

By asking employees to seek temporary, rather than permanent, new roles, Google may be leaving itself flexibility to boost staffing on the Create hardware team in the future. Already, these "floating" employees have been seeking roles within the company's smartphone division, Pixel, and other Alphabet companies, sources say.

A Google representative declined Business Insider's request for comment.

The "road-map pushout," as one source familiar with the matter described the move to Business Insider, raises questions about the extent of Google's commitment to building its own line of laptops and tablets, a fiercely competitive market with razor-thin profit margins.

After several false starts, including a short-lived acquisition of the phone maker Motorola from 2012 to 2014, Google declared its seriousness about hardware in 2016 when it hired Rick Osterloh to head up a new hardware group. Google has repeatedly stressed it is in the hardware business for the long run, even as the efforts have driven up expenses and weighed down the rich profit margins of Google's online ad business.

google pixelbook

Today, the Create division is responsible for the Pixelbook laptop and the Pixel Slate tablet among the company's wider swath of "Made by Google" products. Other divisions within the company's hardware product area (known internally as HWPA) include Pixel (for smartphones), Home (for smart-home devices, including Nest), and Wearables.

Manufacturing roles on Create were not affected by the recent downsizing, signaling Google's near-term product lineup is unlikely to change. But one person familiar with the matter said that the Create group had a "bunch of stuff in the works" and that cutting the number of hardware engineers and program managers on the team would most likely "pare down the portfolio" of products.

The Pixelbook raised eyebrows at its launch, given its high cost (starting at $999) relative to its limited capabilities (the Pixelbook is a Chromebook, meaning it runs on Google's Chrome OS software and is only capable of using internet-based applications). Most Chromebooks that are not manufactured by Google are much lower priced, like Samsung's Chromebook Plus, which starts at $499. Still, the Pixelbook, with its aluminum chassis and high-end screen, was seen as a model for what a premium, Mac-like Chromebook could look like.

Rumors of a Pixelbook 2 have been swirling since the company's hardware event last October, though it has yet to be released. While there is no indication that Google plans to abandon the Pixelbook, the staff reductions suggest that Google is unlikely to flesh out its in-house line of Chromebooks with a wider variety of products and prices.

Google's tablets, meanwhile, have struggled to hit the right note with consumers.

The first Google manufactured tablet — known as the Pixel C — was launched in 2015 and received less than stellar reviews. The longtime tech reviewer Walt Mossberg said the Pixel C represented "an object lesson in what Google shouldn't do if it pursues home-grown integration of hardware and software." The company launched its Pixel Slate — a tablet that acts like a laptop, meant to compete with Microsoft's Surface Pro and Apple's iPad Pro — to a similar, cold reception.

Downsizing its laptop and tablet division comes almost three years after Google unified its hardware efforts under the leadership of Osterloh. Since then, sources tell us, pressure has increased to make hardware at Google into a "real business."

          By Eliminating a Major CAD Drawback, SimSolid Gives Designers New Opportunities for Workflow       Cache   Translate Page      

We've just learned about a fantastic CAD tool—one that works with whatever CAD package you have—that will be a game-changer in the industrial design space. Altair's SimSolid is a simulation plug-in (also available as a stand-alone app) that completely eliminates meshing, that tedious process of simplifying geometry for Finite Element Analysis (FEA). By running SimSolid over your CAD model, you can do simulations nearly instantly—on your original geometry, with no clean-up required.

I know what you're thinking: "Isn't that FEA stuff for engineers? I'm a designer, why should I care about this?" To answer that, let's explain what has been the traditional FEA process up until now, then show you how SimSolid's new advantages would make a difference in your design workflow.

SimSolid is structural analysis software developed specifically for design engineers, enabling the analysis of fully-featured CAD assemblies in minutes without meshing.

Traditional FEA: Useful, But Often Difficult to Use

Finite Element Analysis, or FEA, has become a crucial step in the CAD process. The more simulations you can do, the less prototypes you have to build, saving you both time and money. The problem is that no CAD program is sophisticated enough to run simulations on original CAD geometry, particularly with complicated assemblies, and requires the dreaded meshing step.

So traditionally, you'd design something and draw it up in CAD. It then goes over to an analyst or CAE department, where your CAD geometry is converted into a mesh so that simulations can be run on it. This geometry conversion is time-consuming and a bit of a black art: Should we run a coarse mesh for greater speed, and sacrifice accuracy? Or should we run a finer mesh for accuracy, waiting hours or even days for the computer to produce it?

Another problem with meshing is that it plays havoc with CAD geometry, creating extra busywork and providing opportunities for error. Often lost in translation during the meshing process are crucial connections, gaps and overlaps. Mating parts that you slaved over no longer line up precisely. Designs with small features, both thick and thin parts and/or irregular transitions all provide headaches that must be hunted down and re-worked. To save time, a common trick is to break your assembly into parts and analyze them separately. This introduces the opportunity for errors that can cost end users even more time down the road.

According to the website of one major CAD manufacturer, "Meshing a model is an integral step in performing any simulation. There's no getting around it—it has to be done." Well, with the arrival of SimSolid, that's no longer true.

SimSolid Simplifies FEA, Making it Easy for Designers to Use

SimSolid can run analyses nearly instantly—on your original CAD geometry. There's no meshing required; you pull your CAD file in and it's ready to go within seconds. You don't need to be an analyst with a background in mesh voodoo. You, the designer, can run simulations to figure out if your concept is even viable before kicking it over to ME.

SimSolid eliminates geometry simplification and meshing, the two most time-consuming and expertise-extensive tasks done in traditional FEA.

And if you're a designer working without the benefit of a dedicated engineering department—let's say you're a design entrepreneur or part of a small team crafting low-tech objects for a crowdfunding campaign—the utility of SimSolid should be obvious. Where is the clamp for your new bike light design most liable to break? Will your design for a cantilevered monitor stand support the 21.5 pounds of a 27" iMac Pro? Is the wall thickness for your object appropriate for the application? Are two mounting bolts enough, or do you need four?

A complex machined part with more than 100 small holes. It's time-consuming to mesh and solve this using traditional FEA. SimSolid does it in seconds.

To be able to see these results in seconds to minutes—rather than hours or days—can let you know, early on, if you're barking up the right design tree. And as you refine the design, having the ability to definitively see whether you're over- or under-engineering an object can give you a more accurate idea of BOM and eliminate that "Hey Kickstarter backers, sorry, but we screwed up" update down the line.

For a designer working within an organization that does have access to a dedicated engineering branch, SimSolid can provide an entirely new workflow. Even if ME ultimately needs to sign off after doing their own analysis, you can learn if your initial designs are viable well before knocking on their door. And by being able to spot problems early, you can tackle them with design proposals that hew more closely to your original vision, rather than you designing a unicorn and the engineers coming back with a rhinoceros.

Without having to ask the engineers, you can quickly find out exactly where this stepladder's liable to break if overloaded. That gives you the power to foresee problems and tackle them with design first.

"SimSolid a very empowering piece of software for those users who were locked out of a part of the process; now they can participate," says co-developer Ken Welch. "Let's say you're an industrial designer, and you realize 'I can run a structural simulation right now, without having to wait.' Well, now you can ask a question, and answer it yourself.

"That allows you to develop your designs faster, because now you can use simulation as an integral part of the design process. When you have performance insights available to you early on in the design process, that opens up the possibility for new workflows that were simply not possible in the past."

You can use SimSolid to quickly check where the stress points are on this pull-up bar, and how they change depending on which of the three handle sets are pulled on.

"And you can explore more. Not just with simple parts, as with most other FEA systems; with SimSolid you can look at full assemblies and very complex geometries."

Video Demonstrations

The following videos can give you a better idea of what SimSolid can do for you.

An Introduction to SimSolid

In this first video Warren Dias, Altair's Director of Global Business Developmen, explains the benefits of the software. This is the video you show to your manager:

Demonstration #1: Modal Analysis

Here you can see not only the multitude of CAD formats supported, but just how fast it is to pull a complicated part into SimSolid and run a quick modal analysis:

Demonstration #2: Comparing Multiple Design Variants

In this second demo, Dias r?uns a linear static analysis on two models, showing you how easy it is to compare them directly:

Demonstration #3: Performing a Non-Linear Static Analysis

In the third demo a non-linear static analysis is run, revealing separating contacts with as much ease as the first two demos:

As you can see, results are nearly instantaneous; that little flashing green bar at the bottom left of the screen seems to finish impossibly quickly. I noticed the same during demonstrations given to us by Welch, and I asked him what kind of high-powered hardware the program required.

"I'm just running it on a laptop," he explained. "A lot of people see the demos and think 'I need to run this on a supercomputer in the cloud, right? Or buy a really expensive GPU?' But no, I'm running this on a standard-core i7 laptop, and it runs great."

In short, SimSolid is fast, accurate, and doesn't require extra computing. It opens up a world of possibilities to designers working within today's fast-paced timelines, removing a barrier between ID and ME that seemed intractable. "Analysis never really had the impact it could," Welch says, "because it just couldn't work at the speed of design."

Well, now it can.

To confirm it yourself, you can try SimSolid for free. Altair has also launched a social media promotion where SimSolid users can post a simulation for a chance to win weekly cash prizes. 

"Post your SimSolid simulation results to social media throughout the months of March and April 2019," the company writes, "and every week, five people will be selected to win $50 Visa Gift Cards. The best model at the end of the promotion will win a $1000 grand prize."

          Spotify has bloodied Apple's nose once before. Now, it has a chance to cut its $853 billion rival down to size. (AAPL)      Cache   Translate Page      

Tim Cook angry sad

  • Spotify has gone to war against Apple in Europe, complaining that the way it runs its App Store is anti-competitive.
  • It's a bold move for a company whose market cap is 32 times smaller than Apple's.
  • But Spotify has bloodied Apple's nose before when it circumvented App Store fees.
  • It's bad news for Apple that some of its most popular app makers keep challenging the App Store's economics.
  • Spotify's complaint comes as there's never been greater political will to regulate big tech firms.

Spotify has gone to war against Apple, filing a legal complaint with European antitrust authorities over what it claims is anti-competitive behaviour.

Spotify's beef is about the 30% fee that Apple charges on App Store subscriptions. Apple makes life extremely difficult for services that try and avoid that fee, Spotify argues, meaning the company will have to raise its prices to account for the levy.

That would make Spotify more expensive than Apple's in-house streaming service, Apple Music, which doesn't have to pay the same 30% levy. That, Spotify says, is anti-competitive behaviour because Apple wins either way. You can read more about the complaint here.

Read more: Spotify is going to war with Apple, filing an antitrust complaint over fears it is crushing competitors

Fighting Apple is a bold move, given Spotify is a comparative minnow.

The Swedish service operates a single business — music streaming — while Apple is a major player covering mobile, the cloud, media and entertainment, and computing. Apple, with a market cap of $853 billion, is 32 times more valuable than Spotify, with its $26 billion market cap.

With this in mind, it is hard to see that Apple will be overly worried about the complaint. Indeed, it is yet to even comment on the proceedings filed with the European Commission.

But that is only when the complaint is viewed in isolation. It should worry Apple that some of the biggest and most popular app makers are willing to challenge the economics of the App Store, which CEO Tim Cook keeps billing as a driver of Apple's future growth.

App makers like Netflix are challenging App Store fees

Apple is suffering from peak iPhone and must look to its services division for continued growth. That includes businesses like iCloud, the App Store, and Apple Music.

But that growth faces a challenge if popular third-party developers keep challenging the App Store's main source of revenue — its 30% levy. And there are indications that Apple will feel the pain.

Take the example of Netflix.

The streaming service is the biggest app maker to date to circumvent App Store billing, asking iPad and iPhone users to pay for its subscription service through its site rather than through Apple.

According to Sensor Tower data, Netflix is the top-grossing app for Apple in the US and the billing change could deprive the iPhone maker of as much as $256 million a year in subscription fees. The Netflix move was widely seen as a blow to Apple's narrative that its services division would be the driver of future revenue.

We also know that Apple will already be feeling the impact from Spotify pulling a similar stunt a few years ago.

Spotify used to make Apple an awful lot of money

Look at these two side-by-side charts from Sensor Tower.

They show that Spotify was Apple's top-grossing app both in the US and globally in November 2015.

Sensor Tower Spotify Apple 2015

2015 is an important date in this dogfight — it was the last year Spotify billed every premium subscriber through iTunes, meaning it paid up to 30% of all subscription fees to Apple. The upshot was that Spotify was incredibly lucrative for Apple.

That changed in 2016, when Spotify wouldn't allow new app users on iPhone or iPad upgrade to its paid Premium service through iTunes. Instead, it directed people to its website. That meant it could keep subscription revenue for itself, instead of handing a chunk over to Apple.

The impact was immediate, as shown by the Nomura chart below. The graph compares how much revenue Spotify and Netflix make through the App Store. Look at the red line denoting Spotify — and what happened in 2016 when the firm altered its billing process. You can see there's a big dropoff:

Nomura Spotify Netflix chart

That's a pretty sharp decline! We can see from the grey line that the dropoff for Netflix will be even more severe.

Both Spotify and Netflix through their separate actions have paved the way for other big app makers, who have to fork out lots of money to Apple, to also take a stand.

We've seen a similar story with Google, where the maker of "Fortnite" decided to circumvent Google's Play Store for the Android release.

Can Apple just keep creating its own competing services?

One answer to all of the above, of course, is that Apple has built its own perfectly serviceable music streaming service which is gaining in popularity. It is also about to launch a Netflix competitor.

As it currently stands, Apple wins if both Spotify and Netflix have reduced access to the App Store, because that would drive more people to download and subscribe to Apple Music. As Spotify's CEO acknowledged in his statement on Apple, the App Store is the "gateway" to the internet for the billion people who own an iOS device. It's a huge marketing tool for any app developer.

Apple can't mimic every popular app that decides to avoid the App Store levy though, not least because the regulators might step in. And there has never been greater appetite to regulate the major Silicon Valley firms, both in the Europe and the US.

Given the political risk, it might just be easier to bow before this minnow after all.

           Comment on Building Better Martial Characters Part II – The Magic Ingredient by Jirachi       Cache   Translate Page      
I mean, the inner fire is still a cheap way to get additional spells, but unless your a high level character with really high attributes in everything from a belt of magnificence or something, you probably need a different approach. If you want more spells for the inner fire version, I’d probably suggest buying inner fire and then buying augmented bonus for that, though that’s probably a bit cheesy, and I’m unsure of whether or not it violates stacking rules. I’m also unsure of whether or not you’d permit a ‘spell point inner fire’ which would likely be more efficient. Maybe buy it specialized for increased effect / does not provide any additional spells or caster levels, but give spell points instead of spell slots? That’s probably still far cheaper than buying mana. I’d suggest that you remove the ‘paladin’ bit from it, considering that Clerics sometimes have better options there, and the ‘positive energy’ theming probably covers it enough to be appropriately limited, (since two levels down is roughly ‘single dweomer skill’ in versatility, and positive energy manipulation is a dweomer skill). Basically, buying the feat granting spells is basically telling your GM “This is a part of my concept, but I don’t want to actually pay for these.” Since you basically get 4 feats (24 CP) for the price of 3 CP, and buying all of the setup stuff. I’d probably disallow buying more than one or two purchases of the effectively permanent feat granting stuff, and try to make sure that it stays within the core concept and try to steer it towards ‘Yeah, of course I have this. I’m a paladin” rather than stuff that’s openly exploiting it. You miscounted the number of spells with the inherent spell approach. With 4 spells at levels 1-4, that’s a total of 16 spells, not 20. The inherent spell approach is far cheaper when you buy all of your bonus uses for your highest level and specialize all previous levels with ‘only as a prerequisite’, which from a quick eye balling seems to get more and higher level spells for the same price, but it’s another one of those ‘how the heck did your character develop powers that work like that?’ situations. I mean, there might be enough room for 2/3rds casting if you push it. If were using 170 as the benchmark of what we want to get to, we can just buy the advanced improved augmented bonus for 18 CP and save 102 CP from hit dice, save 40 CP from corrupting BAB, and get a net profit of 34 CP from fast learner specialized in BAB, which is enough to buy Bardic casting or some of the more powerful flexible casting options. Warrior of the Church (+0 ECL race / +1 ECL template) (30 CP) Many warriors and faithful alike are inspired by the tales of holy warriors who wield their faith as a weapon, enhancing their own power and smiting there foes. These are not those warriors. Instead, the warrior of the Church are dabblers, without the talent required to truly master this path. Despite this, they are capable of manifesting a not insignificant divine power from within, though it slumbers within many, there innate magics not strong enough to properly kick start their connection with their gods. Witchcraft II, Specialized for Half Cost / only as a prerequisite (6 CP). Witchcraft Path Of Fire / The Inner Fire, Corrupted for Increased Effect / Cannot cast spells “Unsafely” (6 CP). Augmented Bonus (corrupted for increased effect (only applies to get additional spells) / Adds Con Mod to Cha for computing Inner Fire spell slots) (6 CP) Major Privilege / Church Affiliate (6 CP) – Though Warriors of the Church do not have the same singular dedication to their faith as a Cleric or Paladin does, they are still strongly linked to there faith, and can expect to be able to call upon assistance from the church upon occasion. 1 Channeling use with Conversion (Appropriate divine spell of up to level 2) (6 CP) Honestly, it makes an odd and sad amount of sense that 'being a paladin' is just a +1 ECL template. With this, you are a slightly inferior knock-off paladin (with somewhat less and weaker spells, less channeling, no smiting etc), complete with channeling, spell casting and a nod to the social benefits. Plus, you can just buy this and not touch it ever again, and just do the normal thing of buying non-connected powers if they want to develop it further. Sorry about the not particularly good editing! I probably kept around a few to many ‘legacy’ things that make it a bit more difficult to clearly read.

Since its humble beginning in 1997, Wi-Fi has become an integral part of our daily lives. We pretty much take for granted the connectivity through Wi-Fi and depend on it to maintain our productivity and business agility — to innovate faster to meet new challenges and customer demands.

Since the introduction of protocol 802.11b, each subsequent generation of the Wi-Fi protocol has brought more speed and better throughout for users. As we embark on this journey for digital transformation, especially in the era of connected devices and edge computing, the new standard has to deal with different challenges to keep up with the demands of user traffic. In May 2013, the High Efficiency WLAN Study Group, a study group within the IEEE 802.11 working group started to consider the spectrum efficiency improvement to enhance the throughput in high-density scenarios of APs/users and that is how the project 802.11ax, also known as Wi-Fi 6, got started in May 2014.

Amazon has become so ubiquitous that Amazon Prime might as well be at the bottom of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. But you might not be aware that the e-commerce site is not the most profitable arm of the conglomerate. Their biggest chunk of income actually comes from Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Patriot Act's Hasan Minhaj described AWS's relationship to Amazon best: Amazon.com is Amazon's Los Pollos Hermanos (Breaking Bad, anyone?), while AWS is the peddling operation.

          All That You Need to Know About Man-in-the-Middle Attacks       Cache   Translate Page      

In a man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack, a black hat hacker takes a position between two victims who are communicating with one another. In this spot, the attacker relays all communication, can listen to it, and even modify it.

man-in-the-middle attacks

Imagine that Alice and Barbara talk to one another on the phone in Lojban, which is an obscure language. Nancy is a secret agent who needs to listen in on their conversation but who cannot tap the phone line. Nancy is very clever and talented, so she does the following:

  1. Nancy observes Alice and Barbara for a while. She notices that Alice always calls Barbara, not the other way around.
  2. Nancy recognizes that Alice and Barbara are speaking in Lojban. She learns that language.
  3. Nancy slips a business card into Alice’s purse. The card says “Barbara” but it has Nancy’s phone number.
  4. When Alice calls this number, it is Nancy who receives the call. She answers in Lojban and imitates Barbara’s voice.
  5. Nancy immediately calls Barbara on another phone. She imitates Alice’s voice, saying hello in Lojban.
  6. Nancy continues both conversations switching between them as needed.

Now Alice and Barbara are both certain that they are talking to one another. In reality, they are talking to Nancy who relays communication between them. Nancy knows all the secrets. She may also manipulate the information that Alice and Barbara are sharing with one another.

To pull this off, Nancy uses several tools. For example, she spoofs Barbara’s phone number, she figures out the encryption (Lojban language), and she authenticates by imitating voices. Black hat hackers do very similar things in the IT world.

Are Man-in-the-Middle Attacks Dangerous?

In the world of IT security, black hat hackers usually use man-in-the-middle attacks to eavesdrop on communications between a client and a server. This includes HTTPS connections to websites, other SSL/TLS connections, Wi-Fi connections, and more.

Such hackers have two primary goals: to gain access to sensitive information and/or to manipulate transmitted content. In practice, they can use MITM attacks:

  • To get personal information for identity theft
  • To get login credentials, for example, to gain access to an online bank account
  • To change the target account number to their own when the user is making a bank transfer
  • To get a credit card number when the user is paying at an online shop

You must also remember that websites are not the only target of MITM attacks. A very common target are emails which by default do not use any kind of encryption. If an attacker can get access to an email account, they may intercept and spoof emails.

Real-Life Examples of MITM Attacks

Man-in-the-middle attacks were known a long time before the advent of computers.

In the world of computing, some of the most famous cases linked to MITM attacks were the following:

How Do MITM Attacks Work?

A black hat hacker may attack a connection that is secure (encrypted) or not. In both cases, the first goal is to intercept the connection – like Nancy first has to slip a business card into Alice’s purse. There are many ways to do this including ARP spoofing, IP spoofing, and DNS spoofing. The attacker may also use other attack vectors to take control of the victim’s machine or the server and eavesdrop from there.

ARP Spoofing (ARP Cache Poisoning)

ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) translates between the physical address of an Internet device (MAC address – media access control) and the IP address assigned to it on the local area network. An attacker who uses ARP spoofing tries to inject false information onto the local area network to redirect connections to their device.

For example, your router has the IP address 192.168.0.1. To connect to the internet, your laptop needs to send IP (Internet Protocol) packets to this address. First, it must know which physical device has this address. The router has the following MAC address: 00-00-00-00-00-01.

man-in-the-middle

Let’s say that Nancy is no longer working with phones but she is a black hat hacker:

  1. Nancy injects false ARP packets into the network.
  2. These ARP packets say that the address 192.168.0.1 belongs to Nancy’s device with the following MAC address: 00-00-00-00-00-2A.
  3. The ARP cache stores false information associating IP 192.168.0.1 with MAC 00-00-00-00-00-2A.
  4. The next time your laptop is trying to connect to the internet, it connects to Nancy’s machine.
  5. Nancy’s machine connects to the router (00-00-00-00-00-01) and connects you to the internet, so you don’t even know that Nancy is there.

IP Spoofing (IP Address Spoofing)

IP spoofing means that a computer is pretending to have a different IP address – usually the same address as another machine. On its own, IP spoofing is not enough for a MITM attack. However, an attacker may combine it with TCP sequence prediction.

Most internet connections are established using TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol). When two devices on the network connect to one another using TCP/IP, they need to establish a session. They do it using a three-way handshake. During this process, they exchange information called sequence numbers. The sequence numbers are needed for the recipient to recognize further packets. Thanks to sequence numbers, the devices know the order in which they should put the received packets together.

In this situation, the attacker first sniffs the connection (listens in). This is very easy on a local network because all IP packets go into the network and may be read by any other device. The attacker learns the sequence numbers, predicts the next one, and sends a packet pretending to be the original sender. If that packet reaches the destination first, the attacker intercepts the connection.

A schematic of an ARP spoofing attack used in man-in-the-middle attacks

Let’s go back to Nancy who wants to try IP spoofing with TCP sequence prediction this time:

  1. Nancy joins your local network as 10.0.0.42 with her laptop and runs a sniffer. The sniffer software lets her see all the IP packets that go through the network.
  2. Nancy wants to intercept your connection to the gateway (10.0.0.1). She looks for packets between you (10.0.0.102) and the gateway and then predicts the sequence number.
  3. At the right moment, Nancy sends a packet from her laptop. The packet has the source address of the gateway (10.0.0.1) and the correct sequence number, so your laptop is fooled.
  4. At the same time, Nancy floods the real gateway with a DoS attack. The gateway works slower or stops working for a moment. Nancy’s packet reaches you before the packet from the gateway does.
  5. Nancy convinced your laptop that her laptop is the gateway. Now she convinces the gateway that her laptop is 10.0.0.102 (you), and the MITM attack is complete.

DNS Spoofing (DNS Cache Poisoning)

ARP spoofing and IP spoofing need the attacker to connect to the local network segment that you use. An attacker using DNS spoofing can be anywhere. It’s more difficult because your DNS cache must be vulnerable. However, if successful, it can affect a large number of victims.

DNS (Domain Name System) is the system used to translate between IP addresses and symbolic names like www.example.com. This system has two primary elements: nameservers (DNS servers) and resolvers (DNS caches). The nameserver is the source of authoritative information. Usually, there are two or three systems that keep that information for every domain. For example, the IP number for www.example.com is stored on two nameservers: sns.dns.icann.org and noc.dns.icann.org. You can check this using the Google DNS lookup tool.

If every client that wants to connect to www.example.com connected to these two servers every time, they would be overloaded. That is why every client uses its local resolver to cache information. If the cache does not have information on www.example.com, it contacts sns.dns.icann.org and noc.dns.icann.org to get 93.184.216.34. Then, it stores the IP address locally for some time. All the clients that use this resolver get the address from the cache.

A DNS spoofing attack is performed by injecting a fake entry into the local cache. If a black hat hacker does that, all clients connected to this cache get the wrong IP address and connect to the attacker instead. This lets the attacker become a man-in-the-middle.

A schematic of a DNS spoofing (DNS cache poisoning) attack

This time, Nancy cannot connect to your network so she tries DNS spoofing:

  1. Nancy knows, that you use 203.0.113.255 as your resolver (DNS cache).
  2. Nancy also knows that this resolver is vulnerable to poisoning (uses BIND 4 software).
  3. Nancy poisons BIND 4 at 203.0.113.255 and stores information that www.example.com is 198.51.100.123.
  4. When you type www.example.com in your browser, the site that you see is Nancy’s site.
  5. Nancy connects to the original site to complete the attack.

Other Methods Used to Intercept Connections

Black hat hackers may use many more methods to place themselves between the client and the server. These methods usually belong to one of the following three categories:

  • Server compromise: An attacker may use another technique to gain control over the server that you connect to. They can then place their own software on that server to intercept connections with you. For example, they may start with SQL Injection and escalate to full system compromise, then place MITM software on the compromised web server. They might also abuse a code injection vulnerability to place a shell on the server.
  • Client compromise: An attacker may place a rogue application such as a trojan on your machine (for example, man-in-the-browser). The application can listen in on all your connections and allow for MITM attacks. To do this, the attacker may get you to click a malicious link or may use another technique to have you download malware. They might, for example, perform a Cross-site Scripting attack on your favorite web application and place malicious JavaScript.
  • Communications compromise: An attacker may take over a machine that routes information between the client and the server. For example, a network router with vulnerable software or a public Wi-Fi hotspot. Black hat hackers may also place their own malicious Wi-Fi access point in your vicinity so that you connect to it. If your Wi-Fi network connection uses a vulnerable encryption protocol like WEP, you may be a target of Wi-Fi eavesdropping.

How Do Attackers Listen In?

If the victim uses a secure connection, being in the middle is not enough. Nancy must understand the language that Alice and Barbara are using (Lojban). She must also be able to speak it fluently and imitate Alice’s and Barbara’s voices. This is needed so that Alice and Barbara are still sure that they are talking to one another. Some of the techniques used for this in the IT world are HTTPS spoofing, SSL hijacking, and SSL stripping.

HTTPS Spoofing (IDN Homograph Attacks)

International domain names (IDNs) can contain Unicode characters. Some Unicode characters look similar to ASCII characters. Black hat hackers use this to fool victims. A victim visits a fake website controlled by the attacker who intercepts information and relays it to the real website.

An explanation of an HTTPS spoofing (IDN homograph) attack

For example, Nancy wants you to visit a fake Acunetix website аcunetix.com (the Cyrillic а looks exactly like the ASCII a):

  1. Nancy uses Punycode to register the domain аcunetix.com: xn--cunetix-1fg.com (you can try to create your own using Punycoder).
  2. Nancy buys a legitimate SSL/TLS certificate for аcunetix.com.
  3. Nancy sends you a malicious link to visit the fake Acunetix site.
  4. When you visit the site, you can see https and a lock symbol in the address bar so you are not alarmed.
  5. In the background, Nancy relays all the information sent by you to the real Acunetix site.

Current browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, Edge, Safari) have protection against homograph attacks. For example, they display Punycode in the address bar instead of national characters. However, websites and emails may still contain links in Unicode that look exactly like originals.

SSL Hijacking

Anyone can generate an SSL/TLS certificate for any domain. An attacker who intercepts a connection can generate certificates for all domains that the victim visits. They can present these certificates to the victim, establish a connection with the original server, and relay the traffic. This is called SSL hijacking.

However, your browser trusts only certificates that are signed by a trusted Certificate Authority (CA). If the certificate is not signed by a trusted CA, browsers display clear warnings or even refuse to open a page. Therefore, an attacker needs a way to make your browser believe that the certificate can be trusted. To do it, they must add their CA to the trusted certificate store on your computer. This can be done using other attack vectors.

A schematic of an SSL hijacking attack

If Nancy wants to listen in on your SSL/TLS connections using SSL hijacking, this is what she does:

  1. Nancy gets you to download and install her CA certificate using some other type of attack.
  2. Every time you visit a secure site, for example, acunetix.com, Nancy intercepts the connection.
  3. Nancy generates a certificate for acunetix.com, signs it with her CA private key, and serves it back to you.
  4. Your browser trusts the certificate because Nancy’s CA public key is in your trusted store.
  5. Nancy establishes a connection with acunetix.com and relays all the SSL traffic through her system.

SSL hijacking is very often used for legitimate purposes. For example, malware protection software installed on your computer probably uses SSL hijacking. If not, the software would not be able to protect you when you try to download malware using a secure connection. Some companies use SSL hijacking to control traffic in their internal networks, for example, to check what content their employees are accessing. Parental control software also uses SSL hijacking.

SSL Stripping

When you type an address in your browser, your browser first connects to an insecure site (HTTP). Then, it is usually quickly redirected to the secure site (HTTPS). If the website is available without encryption, the attacker can intercept your packets and force an HTTP connection. If you don’t notice that your connection is unencrypted, you may expose secrets to the attacker. This technique is called SSL stripping.

A schematic of an SSL stripping attack

If Nancy wants to use SSL stripping to get your secrets:

  1. Nancy listens in on your connections to secure websites and intercepts them.
  2. Nancy modifies your initial web requests (they are sent using plain text). The server thinks that your browser is requesting to be served via HTTP.
  3. If the website is configured to serve content via HTTP, your data is sent in plain text and Nancy can read it.

Today, many websites use HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) which means that the server refuses to provide content using an insecure connection. Such websites cannot be attacked using this method.

Other Methods Used for Eavesdropping

There are more methods used to compromise secure connections, including:

  • SSL/TSL vulnerabilities: Older versions of SSL/TLS protocols are vulnerable to attacks that let black hat hackers decrypt the data. For example, CRIME or BEAST attacks.
  • Session hijacking: If parts of the site are available via HTTP and other parts via HTTPS, an attacker may easily get the session cookie and impersonate the user. Session cookies may also be stolen if the website is vulnerable to Cross-site Scripting.

How To Detect and Prevent a Man-in-the-Middle Attack

There are many types of man-in-the-middle attacks and some of them very difficult to detect. The key to preventing them is to have as little trust as possible.

It is more difficult to prevent interception. If the attacker is able to access your network directly, if they compromise the destination server, or if they control network equipment that is used for your connection, there is not much that you can do. What you can do in such cases is choose a different communication route or make sure that encryption is unbreakable.

Here are some basic tips that may help you:

  • Patch your system and use renowned anti-malware software.
  • Don’t use public networks and/or hotspots for any sensitive activities.
  • When connecting to your Wi-Fi, check if you are not connecting to a network with a similar name.
  • Don’t forget to check the browser address bar and make sure you are using a secure connection.
  • Click the lock symbol next to the address bar to get more information about the certificate.
  • Install add-ons that help you detect SSL hijacking, for example, CheckMyHTTPS.
  • Never send any sensitive information via email and do not trust any emails with sensitive information.
  • Set up two-factor authentication wherever you can. Even if an attacker intercepts your data, they will have a hard time getting control of your Android or iPhone as well.

Does SSL Protect Against Man-in-the-Middle Attacks?

Some sources may say that SSL/TLS is enough to protect against MITM attacks. This is not true for the following reasons:

  • The weakest link in a MITM attack is often the human. For example, if you don’t monitor the lock symbol on your browser address bar, you will easily fall for an HTTP stripping attack.
  • Older versions of SSL/TLS may be vulnerable to MITM attacks. If the client or the server uses an older version of SSL/TLS, the attacker may be able to break the encryption.
  • If the attacker compromises your computer or the server, they may tap the communication before it is encrypted or after it is decrypted.
  • In the case of email, connections to servers may be encrypted but it is not as common as in the case of web connections. Also, email is stored on the server and often sent between servers in plain text.

How to Prevent MITM Attacks Against My Website?

Man-in-the-middle attacks are often facilitated by websites, even if your client and connection are safe. If you own a website, make sure that you regularly scan it for vulnerabilities, for example, using the Acunetix web vulnerability scanner (click here for a demo version). If you don’t, some vulnerabilities such as SQL Injection or code injection may let someone install malicious software on your web server. In addition, the Acunetix scanner also checks for SSL/TLS vulnerabilities that might let the attacker eavesdrop on connections to your web server, for example, CRIME, BREACH, and POODLE.

          Researchers Have Taught Robots Self Awareness of Their Own Bodies      Cache   Translate Page      

Columbia Engineering's robot learns what it is, with zero prior knowledge of physics, geometry, or motor dynamics. After a period of "babbling," and within about a day of intensive computing, the robot creates a self-simulation, which it can then use to contemplate and adapt to different situations, handling new tasks as well as detecting and repairing damage in its body. (Source: Robert Kwiatkowski/Columbia Engineering) 

What if a robot had the ability to become kinematically self-aware, in essence, developing its own model, based on observation and analysis of its own characteristics?

Researchers at Columbia University have developed a process in which a robot "can auto-generate its own self model," that will accurately simulate its forward kinematics, which can be run at any point in time to update and essentially calibrate the robot as it experiences wear, damage, or reconfiguration – thereby allowing an autonomous robotic control system to achieve the highest accuracy and performance. The same self model can then be used to learn additional tasks.

For robots designed to perform critical tasks, it is essential to have an accurate kinematic model describing the robot's mechanical characteristics. This will allow the controller to project response times, inertial behavior, overshoot, and other characteristics that could potentially lead the robot's response to diverge from an issued command, and compensate for them.

This requirement presents several challenges: First, as robotic mechanisms get more complex, the ability to produce a mathematically accurate model becomes more difficult. This is especially true for soft robotics, which tend to exhibit highly non-linear behavior. Second, once in service, robots can change, either through wear or damage, or simply experience different types of loads while in operation. Finally, the user may choose to reconfigure the robot to perform a different function from the one it was originally deployed for. In each of these cases, the kinematic model embedded in the controller may fail to achieve satisfactory result if not updated.

According to Robert Kwiatkowski, a doctoral student involved in the Columbia University research, a type of "self-aware robot," capable of overcoming these challenges was demonstrated in their laboratory. The team conducted the experiments using a four-degree-of freedom articulated robotic arm. The robot moved randomly through 1,000 trajectories collecting state data at 100 points along each one. The state data was derived from positional encoders on the motor and the end effector and was then fed, along with the corresponding commands, into a deep learning neural network. “Other sensing technology, such as indoor GPS would have likely worked just as well,” according to Kwiatkowski.

One point that Kwiatkowski emphasized was that this model had no prior knowledge of the robot's shape, size, or other characteristics, nor, for that matter, did it know anything about the laws of physics.

Initially, the models were very inaccurate. "The robot had no clue what it was, or how its joints were connected." But after 34 hours of training the model become consistent with the physical robot to within about four centimeters.

This self-learned model was then installed into a robot and was able to perform pick-and-place operations with a 100% rate in a closed-loop test. In an open loop test, which Kwiatkowski said is equivalent to picking up objects with your eyes closed (a task even difficult for humans), it achieved 44% success.

Overall, the robot achieved an error rate comparable to the robot's own re-installed operating system. The self-modeling capability makes the robot far more autonomous,Kwiatkowski said. To further demonstrate this, the researchers replaced one of the robotic linkages with one having different characteristics (weight, stiffness, and shape) and the system updated its model and continued to perform as expected.

This type of capability could be extremely useful for an autonomous vehicle that could continuously update its state model in response to changes due to wear, variable internal loads, and driving conditions.

Clearly more work is required to achieve a model that can converge in seconds rather than hours. From here, the research will to proceed to look into more complex systems.

BigNineCover-193x300.jpg
Futurist and author Amy Webb talks about her book, The Big Nine, with EconTalk host Russ Roberts. Webb observes that artificial intelligence is currently evolving in a handful of companies in the United States and China. She worries that innovation in the United States may lead to social changes that we may not ultimately like; in China, innovation may end up serving the geopolitical goals of the Chinese government with some uncomfortable foreign policy implications. Webb’s book is a reminder that artificial intelligence does not evolve in a vacuum–research and progress takes place in an institutional context. This is a wide-ranging conversation about the implications and possible futures of a world where artificial intelligence is increasingly part of our lives.

Intro. [Recording date: February 12, 2019.]

Russ Roberts: My guest is futurist and author Amy Webb.... Her latest book is The Big Nine: How the Tech Titans and Their Thinking Machines Could Warp Humanity.... Your book is a warning about the challenges we face, that we're going to face dealing with the rise of artificial intelligence. What is special about the book, at least in my experience reading about AI [Artificial Intelligence] and worries about artificial intelligence is that it doesn't talk about AI in the abstract but actually recognizes the reality that AI is mostly being developed within very specific institutional settings in the United States and in China. So, let's start with what you call the Big Nine. Who are they?

Amy Webb: Sure. So, what's important to note is that when it comes to AI, there's a tremendous amount of misplaced optimism and fear. And so, as you rightly point out, we tend to think in the abstract. In reality, there are 9 big tech giants who overwhelmingly are funding the research--building the open-source frameworks, developing the tools and the methodologies, building the data sets, doing the tests, and deploying AI at scale. Six of those companies are in the United States--I call them the G-Mafia for short. They are Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, IBM [International Business Machines], and Apple. And the other three are collectively known as the BAT. And they are based in China. That's Baidu, Alibaba, and Tencent. Together, those Big Nine tech companies are building the future of AI. And as a result, our helping to make serious plans and determinations, um, for I would argue the future of humanity.

Russ Roberts: And, just out of curiosity: I don't think you say very much in the book at all about Europe. Is there anything happening in Europe, in terms of research?

Amy Webb: Sure. So, the--you know, there's plenty of happening in France. Certainly in Canada. Montreal is one of the global hubs for what's known as Deep Learning. So this is not to say that there's not pockets of development and research elsewhere in the world. And it also isn't to say that there aren't additional large companies that are helping to grow the ecosystem. Certainly Salesforce and Uber are both contributing. However, when we look at the large systems, and the ecosystems and everything that plugs into them, overwhelming these are the 9 companies that we ought to be paying attention to.

3:18

Russ Roberts: So, I want to start with China. I had an episode with Mike Munger on the sharing economy and what he calls in his book Tomorrow 3.0. And, in the course of that conversation, we joked about people getting rated on their social skills and that those would be made public--how nice people were to each other. And we had a nice laugh about that. And I mentioned that I didn't think that that was an ideal situation--that people would be incentivized that way to be good people: despite my general love of incentives, that made me uneasy. And in response to that episode, some people mentioned an episode of Black Mirror[?]--the video series--and also some things that were happening in China. And I thought, 'Yeh, yeh, yeh, whatever.' But, what's happening in China--it's hard to believe. But, tell us about it.

Amy Webb: Sure. And, let me give you a quick example of one manifestation of this trend, and then sort of set that in the broader cultural context. So, there's a province in China where a new sort of global system is being rolled out. And it is continually mining and refining the data of the citizens who live in that area. So, as an example, if you cross the street when there's a red light and you are not able to safely cross the street at that point--if you choose to anyway, as to jay-walk--cameras that are embedded with smart recognition technology will automatically not just recognize that there's a person in the intersection when there's not supposed to be, but will actually recognize that person by name. So they'll use facial recognition technology along with technologies that are capable of recognizing posture and gait. It will recognize who that person is. Their image will be displayed on a nearby digital--not bulletin board; what do you call those--digital billboard. Where their name and other personal information will be displayed. And it will also trigger a social media mention on a network called Weibo. Which is one of the predominant social networks in China. And that person, probably, some of their family members, some of their friends, but also their employer, will know that they have--they have infracted--they have caused an infraction. So, they've crossed the street when they weren't supposed to. And, in some cases, that person may be publicly told--publicly shamed--and publicly told to show up at a nearby police precinct. Now, this is sort of important because it tells us something about the future of recognition technology and data. Which is very much tethered to the future of artificial intelligence. Now, better known as the Social Credit Score, China has been experimenting with this for quite a while; and they are not just tracking people as they cross the street. They are also looking at other ways that people behave in society, and that ranges from whether or not bills are paid on time, to how people perform in their social circles, to disciplinary actions that may be taken at work or at school, to what people are searching on--you know, on the Internet. And the idea is to generate some kind of a metric to show people definitively how well they are fitting in to Chinese society as Chinese people. This probably sounds, to the people listening to the show, like a horrible, Twilight Zone episode--

Russ Roberts: It sounds like 1984, is what it sounds like to me. It's not like, 'I wonder if that's a good idea.' It's more like, 'Are you kidding me?'

Amy Webb: Yeah. And so like, when I first heard about this, my initial response was not abject horror. I was curious. I was very curious.

Russ Roberts: [?]

Amy Webb: But like, here's what made me curious: Why bother? I mean, China has 1.4 billion people. And if the idea is to deploy something like this at scale, that is a tremendous amount of data. And you have to stop and say to yourself, 'Well, what's the point?' So, this is where some cultural context comes into play. So, I used to live in China. And I also used to live in Japan. And, they are very different cultures, very different countries. One distinctive feature of China is a community-reporting mechanism that is sort of embedded into society. And going back many thousands of years--you know, China is an enormous--it's a huge piece of land. And you've got people living throughout it; in fact, they are so spread apart, you have, you know, significantly different dialects being spoken. So, one way to sort of maintain control over vast masses of people spread out geographically was to develop a culture--sort of a tattle-tale culture. And so, throughout villages, if you were doing something untoward or breaking some kind of local custom or rule, that would get reported--you would get reported. Sort of in a gossipy way. But, you would get reported; and ultimately that person that heard the information would report that on up to maybe a precinct or a feudal manager of some kind, who would then report that up to whoever was in charge of the village or town; and then you would get into some kind of actual trouble. This was a way of maintaining social control. And so if you talk to people in China today, a lot of people are aware of monitoring. What I find so interesting is that at the moment, the outcry that we see outside of China does not match the outcry that I have observed--or actually to the lack of outcry--that I have observed in China. Now, there's one other piece of this really important: This is that using AI in this way ties in to China's Belt and Road Initiative [BRI]. And you might have heard about the BRI. This is sort of a master plan--it's a long-term strategy that helps China optimize what used to be the previous Silk Road--trading route. But it's sort of built around infrastructure. What's interesting is that there's also a digital version of this--the sort of digital BRI--where China is partnering with a lot of countries that are in situations where social stability is not a guarantee. And so, they are starting to export this technology into societies and places where there isn't that cultural context in place. And so, you have to stop and wonder and ask yourself, 'What does it mean for 58 pilot countries to have in their hands a technology capable of mining and refining and learning about all of their citizens, and reporting any infractions on up to authorities?' You know, in places like the Philippines, where free speech right now is questionable, this kind of technology, which does not make sense to us as Americans, may make slightly more sense to people in China, becomes a dangerous weapon in the hands of an authoritative, an authoritarian regime elsewhere in the world.

11:14

Russ Roberts: It reminds me, when you talk about the tattle-tale culture--of course, the Soviets did the same thing. They encouraged people to inform on--telltale sounds like a child reporting an insult. It's a monitoring mechanism by which authoritarian governments keep people in line. And you talk about the lack of outcry. Well, one reason is, is that you are worried that your social score is going to be low. Outcrying is probably not a good idea.

Amy Webb: That's right. That's right.

Russ Roberts: You should mention also, which I got from your book, that: It's not just like it's awkward, it's kind of embarrassing, you have a low score. These scores are going to be--going to be used, or being used?--to deal with people get credit, whether they can travel? Is that correct?

Amy Webb: Right. So, again. It's China. So, we can't be 100% of the information that's coming out, because it's a controlled-information ecosystem. But from what we've been able to gather, in all of the research that I've done, you know--I would suggest that it's already being used. It's certainly being used against ethnic minorities like the Uighurs. But we've seen instances of scoring systems being used to make determinations about school that kids are able to get into. You know, kids who, through no fault of their own may have parents that have run afoul, you know, in some way, and earned demotions and demerits on their social credit scores. So, it would appear as though this is already starting to affect people in China. And, again, my job is to quantify and assess future risk. So, as I was doing all of this research, my mind immediately went to: What are the longer term downstream implications? I think some of them are pretty obvious. Right? Like, some people in China are going to wind up having a miserable life as a result of the social credit score--the social credit score as it grows and is more widely adopted to some extent could lead to better social harmony, I guess; but it also leads to, you know, quashing individual ideas and certain freedoms and expressions of individual thinking. But, the flip side of this is: If it's the case that China has BRI--and it's investing in countries around the world not just in infrastructure but in digital infrastructure like fiber and 5G and communications networks and small cells and all the different technologies, in addition to AI and data, isn't it plausible that some time in the near future, our future trade wars aren't just rhetoric but could wind up in a retaliatory situation where people who don't have a credit score can't participate in the Chinese economy? Or, businesses that don't have credit scores can't do, can't trade. Or countries that don't have--if we think about like a Triple A Bond rating, you know, what happens if this credit scoring system evolves and China does business with, only with countries that have a high-enough score? We could quite literally get locked out of part of the global economy. It seems far-fetched, but I would argue that the signals are present now that point to something that could look like that in the near future.

15:03

Russ Roberts: Well, this is going to be a pretty paranoid show--episode--of EconTalk. So, I'm okay with that kind of fear-mongering, because it strikes me as quite worrisome. And I think we have to be, as you hinted at, you have to be open-minded that maybe this will make a better Chinese society, as defined by them. You know, the Soviets wanted to create a new Soviet man--and woman. They failed. But now, with these tools maybe there will be a new Chinese man and woman who will be harmoniously living with their neighbor, never jaywalking, and never gossiping, and smiling more often. Who knows? But, it's not my first, default thought about how this is going to turn out. I think that--

Amy Webb: No, but you kind of--you have to start with--I want to point out that I am not like a dystopian fiction writer. I'm a pragmatist. So, this--I am not studying all of this for the purpose of scaring people. What I would argue is, I have studied all of this, and used data, and modeled out plausible outcomes; and it is scary. It really is. Because you have to, again, connect the dots between all of this and other adjacent areas that are important to note. The CCP [Chinese Communist Party] in China is--

Russ Roberts: the Communist Party--

Amy Webb: yep--is facing some huge opportunities but also big problems. The Chinese economy may technically be slowing, but it's not a slow economy. There's plenty of growth ahead. And, if that holds--and there's no reason why at the moment it wouldn't--you know, Chinese society is about to go through social mobility at a scale never seen before in modern human history. And as that enormous group of people moves up, they are going to want to buy stuff. They are going to want to travel. So, you know, that potentially causes some problems, because the more wealth that is earned, the more agency people feel, the more opinions they start having about how the government ought to be run. And, you know, the CCP effectively made the current President of China, Xi Jinping, effectively President for life. And 2049--which seems far off but in the grand scheme of things isn't really that far into the future--is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the CCP. China is very good at long-term planning. Now, they've not always made good on fulfilling promises. But they are good at planning.

Russ Roberts: Yes, they are.

Amy Webb: Right? So, I don't see all of this as flashes in the pan, and 'AI's kind of a hot buzzy topic right now.' I'm looking at the much longer term and the much bigger picture. That's what makes me kind of concerned.

18:02

Russ Roberts: I think that's absolutely right. One other institutional detail to make clear for listeners is that the Chinese Internet is roped off, to some extent--to quite a large extent. They are developing their own tools and apps. And, talk about the three companies in China that are working on AI and how they work together in a way that American companies are not.

Amy Webb: So, here's another interesting facet of the Big Nine and AI is on a sort of a dual-developmental track. In China, Baidu, Alibaba, and Tencent were all formed sort of in the late 1990s, early 2000s; and their origin stories are not all that different from our big, modern tech giants like Amazon and Google and Apple. The key distinction is that our big tech companies were formed out for the most part in Seattle, Redmond, and Cupertino--California and San Francisco. Where, the ecosystem was able to blossom: there's plenty of competition. And there was plenty of talent. California has fairly lenient--in some ways--fairly lenient employer/employee laws which has made it very easy for talent to move between companies. And, if you are somebody who studies innovation, you know, the sort of lack of--the limited or lack of regulation, the ability for people to move around--

Russ Roberts: letting people make enormous amounts of money when they succeed and losing all of it when they fail--

Amy Webb: Right. Right. Right. But, the lack of safety net, the lack of a central, federal authority, if you will, is partly what enabled these companies to grow. And to grow fast. And to grow big. Which is why we also see a lot of overlap. So, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and IBM [International Business Machines] own and maintain the world's largest cloud infrastructure. So, if you own a website or you are a business owner or you are making a phone call, at some point you are accessing one of their clouds. You know--we have competing, for the most part, we have competing operating systems for our mobile devices. For the most part, we still have competing email systems. And that's because without a central authority dictating one of the companies was going to do which thing, they all sort of did it. They went alone. When it went on their own and built their own things. So, now we have tremendous wealth concentrated among just a few companies who own the lion's share of patents; who are funding most of the research. And, for the most part, Silicon Valley and Washington, D.C. have an antagonistic relationship. That is not the case in China. So, in China, when the big tech companies were being formed there, you don't do anything in China without also in some way creating that business in concert with Beijing--with the government. You've got to pull patents--I'm sorry--you've got to pull permits. You have to abide by various regulations and laws. People are checking in on you. So, while Baidu, Alibaba, and Tencent may be independent financial organizations, in practical terms they are very much working in lockstep with Beijing. Alibaba, for those of you not familiar with the company, is very similar to Amazon. So, it's a retail operation. Tencent is very similar to our social media: so, sort of Twitter meets gaming and chat. And, I'm sorry--and Baidu is sort of search--is the sort of Google-esque company of the bunch. When China--when the Chinese government decided that AI was going to be a central part of its future plans--and this was decided years ago--it also decided that Tencent was going to focus on health; that Baidu was going to focus on cloud; and that Alibaba was going to focus on various different data aspects. I'm sorry; and Baidu was also going to focus on AI and transportation. So, it's not as though these companies came to these additional areas of research and work on their own. It was centrally coordinated. And that's a really, really important thing to keep in mind. If we've got a central government, a powerful government that is now--that has this long-term vision and is centrally coordinating, what's happening at a top level with the research and the movements of these companies, suddenly you have a streamlined system where you don't have arguments about regulation; you don't have the companies at each other's throats--like we've seen in the United States, Apple suddenly calling for sweeping privacy regulations because, to be fair, it's sort of--they are already far ahead and it gives them a competitive advantage. You don't see all that infighting in China. So, we have some fundamental differences. And the real challenge is that while we're trying to sort all this out in the United States, you have a streamlined central authority with three very powerful companies who are all now collaborating in some way on the future. In addition to a bunch of other top-level government initiatives to repatriate academics; to bring back top AI people; but also to do things like start educating kindergarteners about AI. There is a textbook that is going to roll out this year throughout China teaching kindergarteners the fundamentals of machine learning. I mean, you know--whereas in the United States, you know, some of our government officials, you know, up until very recently denied AI's capabilities; and only yesterday--so this is February 11th--President Trump issued an Executive Order to, I guess--I mean, there's a handful of bullet points on what AI ought to be, but it wasn't a policy paper. There's no funding. There's no government structure set up. There's not--I mean it--you see where I'm getting at?

25:07

Russ Roberts: Well, yeah--let me push back against that a little bit. You know, China is growing tremendously; as you point out, they are going to, presumably, they are already in one of the greatest transformations in human history from the countryside to the city, from a low standard of living to a much higher standard of living. And most of that's wonderful, and I'm happy about it. We don't know exactly what their ambitions will be or are outside of their own borders, and therefore what the repercussions are for us. As you suggest, they are doing a bunch of stuff. But the fact that they are top down and planning and organized, and we are chaotic and disorganized--so, just to take an example, you know, there's n companies in America, more than 4; I don't know how many there are--working on various aspects of driverless autonomous vehicles. There's Uber; there's Lyft; Apple; Google; there's Waymo. There's a lot going on here. And a lot of that will turn out. That's the nature of creative destruction; and capitalism. Some of those investments won't pan out. It will--the gambles will fail and lose, and people lose all their money. And, in general, historically, that chaotic soup of competition serves the average person and the people who are innovators quite well. The fact that China has, say, Baidu focusing on that and no one else having to worry about it, could be a bug, not a feature. I'm not convinced that China teaching kindergarteners machine learning is going to turn out well. Could be a mistake. Could be an enormous blunder. They are not allowing kind of experimentation, trial and error, that in my view is central to innovation. So, I think it remains to be seen how successful their walled garden with top-down gardening going on from the government's vision of what they want AI to serve, is going to work out. It might. It could. And it could be hard--the outcomes might be really bad for not just the Chinese but for other people. But it might just kind of fail. And, I'm not even convinced that their growth path is going to continue the way it has in the past. A lot of people just assume that because they have grown dramatically over the last 25 years they'll keep growing dramatically. There's a lot of ghost cities in China; there's a lot of overbuilding. I'm not so sure they have everything under control. So, I think you have to have that caveat as a footnote to those concerns.

Amy Webb: I completely agree with you. I would say that, for years, especially in the United States, we've been indoctrinated into thinking that China is a copy-paste culture rather than a culture that understands how to innovate, and to some extent I think that that is the result of that heavy-fisted, top-down approach to business. What I'm concerned about is not whether China succeeds financially. Here's what I'm concerned about. The challenge with artificial intelligence is that it's already here. It is not--there's no event horizon. There's no single thing that happens. It's already here. And it's been here for a while. And, in fact, it powers--you know, artificial [?] intelligence now powers our email; it powers the anti-lock brakes in our cars. You know. And essentially, this new Third Era of computing that we are in, if we assume that the First Era was tabulation--so that would have been Ada Lovelace in the late 1800s--and a Second Era was programmable systems, which would have been those early IBM mainframes on up to the, you know, desktop computers that we use today. This next Era is AI. And AI, while we've seen it anthropomorphized in movies like Her and on shows like Westworld, at its heart, AI is simply systems that make decisions on our behalf. And they do that using tools to optimize. So, the challenge is that, right now, systems are capable of making fairly narrow decisions. And the structures of those systems, and which data they were trained on, and how they make decisions and under what circumstances, those decisions were made by a relatively few number of people working at the BAT [Baidu, Alibaba, Tencent] in China and at the G-Mafia here in the United States. And the problem is that these systems aren't static. They continue to learn. And they--you know--they join, literally millions and millions of other algorithms that are all working in service of optimizing things on our behalf. Which is why I agree with you that if we are talking about a self-driving future, it's good to have competition, because--for all the usual reasons. Right? We get better form factors[?]; we get better vehicles; we get better price points. But when we are talking about systems that are continuing to evolve, that grow more and more powerful the more data they have access to and the more compute they are given--more computer power. And as we move into the more technical aspects, there are things like Generative Adversarial Networks, which are specifically designed to play tricks, to help systems learn more quickly. We are talking about slowly but surely ceding control over to systems to make these decisions on our behalf. And, that is what concerns me. What concerns me is that we do not have a singular set of guardrails that are global in nature. We don't have norms and standards. I'm not in favor of regulation. On the other hand, we don't have any kind of agreed-upon ideas for who and what to optimize for, under what circumstances. Or even what data sets to use. And China has a vastly different approach than we do in the United States, in part because China has a completely different viewpoint on what details of people's private lives should be mined, refined, and productized. And here in the United States, a lot of these companies have obfuscated when and how they are using our data. And, the challenge is that we all have to live with the repercussions.

32:10

Russ Roberts: Yeah, I'd agree with that. Up to a point. I want to give you a chance to talk about some scary examples. I think the--I'll just say, up front, that for me, underlying this whole problem--there are many different proximate causes and concerns. But there is, it seems to me, a very significant lack of competition. We can talk about how much competition there is in the United States relative to China. But certainly--the concern for me here in the United States is that the Big Six[Big Nine?] here in the United States will stay the Big Six[Big Nine?]. Which will give them leverage to do a bunch of things that you or I might not like. I do want to add that whatever we do to regulate or constrain them, via culture or whatever, allows for the possibility that they don't stay the Big Six[Big Nine?]. And I think one of the challenges of any way to deal with these problems is that, if you're not careful, you are going to end up creating a cartel that--it's de facto right now, but that can change. But if you make it de jure, you're going to end up with much worse outcomes than I think we're going to have. But, to concede your point about concern: I do think the Silicon Valley ethos of ask for forgiveness rather than permission--because right now there's no one you have to ask permission for, generally. Users are not paying much attention. There's very little regulation of how your private data is being used. Obviously something happened on January 1st, 2019 because I get a lot of annoying bars on my websites saying 'Will you accept cookies?' and I stupidly always click 'Yes,' like I'm sure most people do. And now they've complied with whatever required them to do that, and they're moving along. So, you know, I do think that there are some serious issues here. And you give some examples in the book of where these corporations--or China--have done things, and they really pay a price for it. They just keep going. The Facebook/Cambridge Analytica problem. The example you give of China pressuring Marriott the way their website was designed in terms of territorial recognition of China's sovereignty over various places that are somewhat up in the air. Those are serious issues, I think. And, more importantly, they are just the tip of the iceberg. So, talk about a couple of those things that you are worried about, that I think are alarming. And, normally, the marketplace would punish these folks; but not much does.

Amy Webb: So, I love what you just said, which is that the market--so it's curious, right? Why has the marketplace not punished the Big Nine? Or at least the G-Mafia, right? Or at least Facebook?

Russ Roberts: They've been punished a little bit. I think their users are down. I'm thinking about deleting my Facebook page. And I'm sure--and I've switched to DuckDuckGo for my searching. It's a really small step. But these are things that maybe people are starting to do in a little, slightly bigger, numbers.

Amy Webb: Maybe. But, again, like I don't have access to the whole world's data. Thank God. But--and you--let's just reveal our biases: like, you and I are digitally savvy people.

Russ Roberts: You're kind, Amy.

Amy Webb: Well, but you are. I think the fact that you even know what DuckDuckGo is, that you are somebody who is using it, I think is quite telling. [More to come, 35:37]

          GPU.js : exécuter du JavaScript sur le GPU de votre machine      Cache   Translate Page      

A découvrir absolument par les geeks, les amateurs de performances, ou les esprits curieux : GPU.js

GPU.js est une bibliothèque d'accélération JavaScript pour GPGPU (General Purpose computing on GPU). Cette bibliothèque compile votre code JavaScript en un langage de shader pour l'exécuter sur le GPU de votre machine et profiter ainsi de son accélération. S'il n'y a pas de GPU présent sur la machine, le code JavaScript est exécuté normalement.

Plus exactement ce sont chacune des fonctions de votre code JavaScript qui sont compilées en langage de shader. Chaque fonction devient un kernel (ou compute kernel) c'est-à-dire une routine compilée pour être exécutée sur un accélérateur.

Selon votre matériel, l'exécution de votre code peut être jusqu'à 15 fois plus rapide avec GPU.js que sans.

Soit un exemple de code dont le but est de multiplier 2 matrices de taille 512*512.

const gpu = new GPU();

const matMult = gpu.createKernel(function(a, b) {
    var sum = 0;
    for (var i = 0; i < 512; i++) {
        sum += a[this.thread.y][i] * b[i][this.thread.x];
    }
    return sum;
}).setOutput([512, 512]);

Ce code définit un kernel qui calcule un simple élément de la matrice. Ce code va être parallélisé sur le GPU pour calculer tous les éléments de la matrice... en parallèle.

On invoque alors le kernel ainsi :

const c = matMult(a, b);

a et b étant bien sûr les deux matrices à multiplier.

Il est possible de combiner les kernels. L'exemple ci-dessous définit des opérations mathématiques simple, addition et multiplication, puis les combine en un 'superkernel' qui effectue une multiplication sur le résultat d'une addition

const add = gpu.createKernel(function(a, b) {
           return a + b;
}).setOutput([20]);
 
const multiply = gpu.createKernel(function(a, b) {
           return a * b;
}).setOutput([20]);

const superKernel = gpu.combineKernels(add, multiply, function(a, b, c) {
           return multiply(add(a[this.thread.x], b[this.thread.x]), c[this.thread.x]);
});

superKernel(a, b, c);

La bibliothèque GPU.js est très riche en fonctionnalités et elle mérite vraiment d'être découverte, même si sa documentation n'est pas parfaitement à jour au moment où nous écrivons ces lignes. Les auteurs sont en train d'y remédier.

GPU.js est un logiciel libre sous licence MIT, disponible sur GitHub et qui dispose d'un site dédié.

          Seattle's Multibillion Dollar Gaming Industry      Cache   Translate Page      
How did the Pacific Northwest become the center of video-game creation in the first place? by Lester Black

Seattle is a gaming town. Not just because we have a lot of people who play video games. Not just because it's easier to find a box of Catan or Scrabble than order a drink in a Seattle bar. This is a gaming town because we make billions of dollars a year from the business itself.

We don't just play games in Seattle—we make the games the rest of the world plays.

In case you're not aware, the Pacific Northwest is home to some of the biggest names in the gaming industry. Logos of local companies are displayed on the loading screen for gaming devices around the world. Microsoft's Xbox Game Studios along with Bungie created the blockbuster Halo franchise here. Valve, which created the enormously popular Steam service and games like Half Life, is here. Wizards of the Coast, the publisher of hugely popular card games like Magic: The Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons, and the Pokémon Trading Card Game is here. Nintendo's North American headquarters is here.

Even Amazon, our local digital-business behemoth, has announced that it is "all-in on games" after spending $970 million on Twitch, a live video-game streaming site that has become hugely popular with people who like to watch other people play video games.

Any way you look at it, these companies create a big economic impact in the local area. A 2016 study commissioned by the Washington Interactive Network (WIN), a nonprofit that advocates for the local gaming industry, found that there are more than 430 local gaming companies that employ 20,800 people and give work to an additional 2,400 freelancers. These companies generated $21.4 billion in revenue in 2015 and paid $7.6 billion in labor income.

This industry is no secret in Eastside communities like Bellevue or Redmond, where at least one McMansion per block must be getting its mortgage paid with video-game money. Most of these video-game workers are professionals in fields like computer science, software engineering, law, or executive management.

If we really want to understand how geek culture affects our local economy, we need to look at how these gaming salaries pay for everything from groceries to weed to cars. WIN added up the impact of these salaries and found that the gaming industry supports 94,200 jobs through "direct, indirect, and induced impacts."

That's a big influence all from one industry—so why is it here? Did our gloomy winters bring all of these gaming experts to the area? Nope. It turns out the very non-virtual world of aerospace engineering had more to do with launching our local gaming industry, according to Kristina Hudson, the executive director for WIN.

"It all goes back to Boeing," Hudson said. "Boeing had a wealth of engineers, and there was a time when they were doing flight simulation work. And that was when you started to get interactive software creation and media development."

After Boeing put engineers to work on creating flight simulation technology, other companies followed. Nintendo opened its North American headquarters in Redmond in 1982. Microsoft expanded from just personal computing to personal video gaming in the late 1990s.

The local industry kept growing until it attained enough momentum that it became known worldwide. Gaming companies now want to move to the Seattle area because they know that the gaming "talent"—the software engineers and computer scientists who know how to build games—is here.

"When you're looking at drawing companies to the region or when companies are expanding, it's all about the talent. Companies want to be here to take advantage of that talent," Hudson said.

Seattle's hotbed of engineering talent is helping our local industry spearhead the future of gaming: augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR).

Oculus, Facebook's VR arm, has an office in Redmond and has been pushing other local companies to create products for their VR platform the Oculus Rift. Jeff Pobst, the CEO of Hidden Path Entertainment, said that his company "had no plans" to get into VR when it started in 2006. But Oculus convinced Hidden Path to produce VR games, and the Bellevue company now has seven VR titles.

"The Seattle area in general is one of the top places for game development in the country, and because of our confluence of artists, designers, and technologists... that opens up the opportunity for working in VR and AR, where you have to be creative but you also have to be very strong technically," Pobst said.

Most people connect VR technology with gaming, but it's already starting to transition into a vast array of other industries. Pobst said VR technology is already being used by industries as disparate as government, medicine, and real estate. VR technology is still relatively new, with lots of room for technological improvement, which means one thing for Seattle: There's plenty of work in the future for the local gaming industry.

And Seattle is going to keep being part of the future of gaming—and tech itself—worldwide.
