This is probably a difficult time to give exciting presentations on Intel's security roadmap. Speculative prediction vulnerabilities have hurt Intel's processors considerably more than their competitors', and the company has been beaten significantly to market by faster, easier-to-use hardware memory encryption technologies as well. Rao and Woodgate put a brave face on things by talking up how SGX has been and is being used in Azure. But it seems apparent that the systemwide approach to memory encryption already implemented in AMD's Epyc CPUs—and even in some of their desktop line—will have a far greater lasting impact. Intel's slides about their own upcoming full memory encryption are labeled "innovations," but they look a lot more like catching up to their already-established competition. … [Read more...] about Intel promises Full Memory Encryption in upcoming CPUs
3. Spirit Shards help you play the way you want Of all the new features, Spirit Shards are the most interesting. These equippable abilities modify Ori’s stats and attacks and can be found or purchased throughout the world. Some of the shards we found during our gameplay session included one called Reckless that increases the damage Ori deals by 15%, but also increases the damage taken by the same amount. … [Read more...] about Ori and the Will of the Wisps: 5 big changes that are coming to Ori 2
Western Digital – the company that makes storage solutions, including the SanDisk memory cards that many of us use – gets freshers (new college graduates or NCGs) to file trade secrets/ patents within a year or two of joining. Many will find that incredible. Supria Dhanda, country manager at Western Digital India, says it’s the result of multiple programmes. The flagship programme is called Independently Productive Program (IPP) and has been in implementation for the last six years. This year will see the seventh batch. It’s a four week intensive boot camp followed by functional training programmes for the next three to six months. IPP, Dhanda says, motivates the engineers to assume greater leadership and ownership of projects. This programme – together with other programmes like Data Innovation Bazaar, Hackathons and Inventor Recognition Events – is the main reason we have one of the largest number of NCG employees actively contributing to building … [Read more...] about Freshers file patents, trade secrets at Western Digital India
"Precisely because Mars is an environment of great potential biological interest, it is possible that on Mars there are pathogens, organisms which, if transported to the terrestrial environment, might do enormous biological damage — a Martian plague, the twist in the plot of H. G. Wells' War of the Worlds, but in reverse. This is an extremely grave point. On the one hand, we can argue that Martian organisms cannot cause any serious problems to terrestrial organisms, because there has been no biological contact for 4.5 billion years between Martian and terrestrial organisms. On the other hand, we can argue equally well that terrestrial organisms have evolved no defenses against potential Martian pathogens, precisely because there has been no such contact for 4.5 billion years. The chance of such an infection may be very small, but the hazards, if it occurs, are certainly very high." … [Read more...] about What can the coronavirus outbreak teach us about bringing Mars samples back to Earth?
