Tech Giants Betting on NVIDIA’s

Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft are all making their move to use NVIDIA’s processor’s to help power the future. NVIDIA is revered for its leading the way in the graphics processing units, or GPU’s in their business applications. Considering all the of the money and attention this is getting from this is a fair indication that this is going to take off, at the very least it is going to be a sound investment. Considering that in terms of the diversification of your portfolio and market diversification this could be a good play in 2017 and will have lasting implications for a few years after that. It seems like anywhere you turn tech companies are preparing for their next big move. 

The way Microsoft is making their move in this arena is that the Windows-maker has tapped NVIDIA’s GPU prowess for a few of their existing devices. What this means is that they are rethinking their Surface Book as well as their Tegra processor to account for this mounting trend.

The deal is likely to bring NVIDIA’s GPUs, Grid 2.0 visualized graphics platform that is present on the Azure. This is going to enable Microsoft’s cloud based services to bring professional grade graphics processing and super-computing performance to computers that currently run on the Azure cloud based services.

Essentially Microsoft is planing on expanding its role in the growing competition that exists in the cloud based computing services. If we look across the board we can see that the future is in the cloud, and that anyone who is going to make their play to remain at the top of the totem pole, you need to make cloud computing a huge part of your of business model going forward.

This being said there is also going to be a sound investment opportunity for compression based software farms. The reason being, is that we are storing everything, and at a certain point, we cannot keep to put these up with the speed that we are today. Something has got to give. At the very least if someone delivers a compelling file compression platform and can take it to market first they will position themselves to be a huge player that everyone is going to see savings in if they take advantage of them. 

When we look at Amazon in this regard they have tried to power their cloud services since at least 2013 and its pretty similar to how Microsoft is using NVIDIA’s GPU’s for Azure.

In addition Amazon AWS website said that their GPUs are ” ideally suited for graphic high performance computing applications.”

Amazon is also using the NVIDIA’s GPUs is notable in so far as it is in position to more so than anyone to rise up to the top in this emerging market. They are also investing big time in this regard to the tune of $2.5 billion from AWS in the first quarter of 2016 alone. To put this in perspective 63% year over year.

Facebook’s is unique in their investment opportunity, because they are looking for investment opportunities that are done in conjunction with other giants. This is being done as a means to buffer their liability to profit loses.

Chinese Aerospace Businessman Pleads Guilty in Data Conspiracy Case

Su Bin (also known as Stephen Su and Stephen Subin), a resident of the People’s Republic of China, recently pleaded guilty to participating in a conspiracy to steal sensitive military and export-controlled data from major U.S. defense contractors. The Chinese aviation and aerospace businessmen allegedly entered into a deal in which he would steal the data and then send the information to China, according to the United States Department of Justice.

su bin4Su Bin entered his plea before Judge Christina A. Snyder of the Central District of California. Bin’s original indictment was issued against him in 2014. According to the indictment, Bin was part of a criminal conspiracy to steal military technical data, including data relating to the C-17 strategic transport aircraft and a variety of other fighter jets produced for the U.S. military. Bin was arrested from Canada and transported to the United States shortly after the indictment was issued and Su waived his extradition.

“This plea sends a strong message that stealing from the United States and our companies has a significant cost; we can and will find these criminals and bring them to justice,” stated assistant attorney general for national security John P. Carlin.

Su’s plea agreement involved him admitting to conspiring with two people in China from October 2008 to March 2014 to break into protected American computer networks, including computers belonging to Boeing in Orange County, California, with the intention of stealing “sensitive” military detail and sharing it with counterparts located in China. Su’s plan was to email his co-conspirators and inform them regarding who and what to target after having penetrated a computer network, according to the Department of Justice.

Su’s co-conspirators would then send Su lists of files and folders that were successfully accessed during a network invasion. Su would then instruct the conspirators on which files and folders should be stolen of the list provided.

Su also held another skill valuable to his co-conspirators; he was able to translate stolen files and folders from English to Chinese. He could then write reports regarding the thieved data, approximating its value to its beneficiary.

su bin3Although Su in many ways played the role of a spy, at no point during the proceedings was there any mention of Su and his co-conspirators being associated with the Chinese central government.

“The plea agreement steers clear of accusing China of being behind it, even thouh Su Bin was working with two members of the military,” stated Richard Steinnon, chief research analyst with IT-Harvest.

“The two co-conspirators were identified as military officers, but it seems like these guys were moonlighting,” ventured CEO of Taia Global Jeffrey Carr. “This was not a PLA (People’s Liberation Army) operation. If it was, they wouldn’t have needed Su Bin,” he continued. “Neither would one of the co-conspirators be trying to buy malware on the dark web. The PLA doesn’t have to buy malware on the dark Web to attack a targeted company.”

The true story may be impossible for any standard onlookers to access, but it looks like either way Su Bin will be doing five years in American prison and a fine of around $250,000 for his snooping.

Science and the Computer Revolution

Many scientists and sociologists could find the means to make the argument that we are currently involved in a scientific revolution spurred by computers. Although the last scientific revolution may have involved the invention of science itself, our current one does at least seem to involve, if not the proliferation of science, the proliferation of completely new means of conducting science, at levels so much more powerful and informative than previously known that science itself arguably has changed.

rev in evTake for example the rise of big data, as well as deep learning, machine learning, artificial intelligence, cognitive computing, whatever you want to call it capabilities that have risen along side the data. Now not only can huge amounts of data be collected, the process of analysis is speeding up faster and faster as computers are being programmed to look at large data sets and figure out how to best sort them, tasks that can take huge teams of researchers 1000% longer. With these tools, the medical and engineering fields are growing faster than ever before. Genomes are being fully written down or predicted, viruses are being mapped, all kinds of cool stuff.

Computers have also made the invention of new tools much easier. Without the computing that went into creating LIGA’s equipment, likely the physicists responsible for finally discovering the first confirmed gravitational wave would have never been able to understand whether that wave was real or just a result of a passing train or earthquake. Truly amazing stuff.

And then to move on to how computing may affect the human mind; it’s hard to say, as the rise of the internet is so unprecedented and remains so fresh in our era that longterm studies have yet to be conducted on the results of our newest companions. That said, the rise of the cloud and cloud computing as well as neural mapping progress have led some transhumanists to end belief and hope to the 2045 initiative, the movement towards making it possible to upload one’s “self” to the cloud and live as a hologram for as long as there are computers and an internet an infrastructure to project one’s self.

rockoThat said, some believe that there truly is a limit to how much the human spirit can be melded with the human-made. Those who counter transhumanist theory and the 2045 initiative stress that the human brain and neural connections do not work linearly and would likely to be too immense to ever translate into digital, binary code.

And perhaps they’re right, but then there’s the highly awaited rise of quantum computing, an effort to make subatomic particles function as transistors that actually can function with more parts than just 0 and 1. If that’s to happen, perhaps less linear and more biological movements can be mimicked by computers which, if they were made out of subatomic particles, would perhaps be capable of being more biological themselves.

Yes, the world is changing, and it takes a huge amount of time and internet wandering to even get a tiny piece of it into your brain, so perhaps the rate at which a human being learns would be the biggest change of all. If only we could figure out how to speed that up.

Recover Photos from CF Compact Flash Card

A CF Card (Compact Flash Card) is a well known blaze computerized memory card. The limits are more often than not from 128 MB to 64 GB.
