The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) has created an IT crisis and a significant need for more hardware that is both energy efficient and scalable. A key step in AI and ML is making decisions based on incomplete data, the best approach for which is to generate a probability for each possible answer. Current classical computers are not able to do this in an energy-efficient way, a limitation that has led to the search for new computing approaches. Quantum computers, which run on qubits, can help meet these challenges, but they are extremely sensitive to their environment, must be kept at extremely low temperatures, and are still in early stages of development.

Kerem Camsari, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering (ECE) at UC Santa Barbara, believes that probabilistic computers (p-computers) are the solution. P computers are powered by probabilistic bits (p-bits), which interact with other p-bits in the same system. Unlike conventional computer bits, which are in the 0 or 1 state, or qubits, which can be in multiple states at once, p-bits fluctuate between positions and operate at room temperature. In a article Posted in Natural electronicsCamsari and his collaborators discuss their project which demonstrated the promise of p-computers.

“We have shown that inherently probabilistic computers, built from p-bits, can outperform state-of-the-art software in development for decades,” said Camsari, who earlier received a Young Investigator Award from the Office of NavalResearch. This year.

Camsari’s group collaborated with scientists from the University of Messina in Italy, with Luke Theogarajan, vice chairman of UCSB’s ECE department, and with physics professor John Martinis, who led the team that built the world’s first quantum computer to achieve quantum supremacy. Together, the researchers have obtained promising results using classical hardware to create domain-specific architectures. They developed a unique parsimonious Ising machine (sIm), a novel computing device used to solve optimization problems and minimize power consumption.

Camsari describes the sIm as a collection of probabilistic bits that can be thought of as people. And each person only has a small group of trusted friends, which are the “scattered” connections of the machine.

“People can make decisions quickly because they each have a small group of trusted friends and they don’t have to hear everyone in a whole network,” he explained. “The process by which these agents reach consensus is similar to that used to solve a difficult optimization problem that satisfies many different constraints. Sparse Ising machines allow us to formulate and solve a wide variety of these optimization problems using the same hardware.

The team’s prototype architecture included a field-programmable gate array (FPGA), powerful hardware that offers far more flexibility than application-specific integrated circuits.

“Imagine a computer chip that lets you program the connections between p-bits in a network without having to make a new chip,” Camsari said.

The researchers showed that their sparse architecture in FPGAs was up to six orders of magnitude faster and had increased sampling rates five to eighteen times faster than those achieved by optimized algorithms used on conventional computers. .

Additionally, they reported that their sim achieves massive parallelism where flips per second – the key figure that measures how quickly a p-computer can make an intelligent decision – scales linearly with the number of p-bits. Camsari refers to the analogy of trusted friends trying to make a decision.

“The key issue is that the process of reaching consensus requires strong communication between people who continually talk to each other based on their latest thoughts,” he noted. “If everyone makes decisions without listening, consensus cannot be reached and the optimization problem is not solved.”

In other words, the faster the p-bits communicate, the faster a consensus can be reached, which is why increasing flips per second, while making sure everyone is listening to each other, is crucial.

“That’s exactly what we achieved in our design,” he explained. “By making sure everyone listened to each other and limiting the number of ‘people’ who could be friends with each other, we parallelized the decision-making process.”

Their work has also shown an ability to scale p-computers up to five thousand p-bits, which Camsari sees as extremely promising, while noting that their ideas are only one piece of the p-computer puzzle.

“For us, these results were just the tip of the iceberg,” he said. “We used existing transistor technology to emulate our probabilistic architectures, but if nanodevices with much higher levels of integration were used to build p-computers, the benefits would be enormous. This is what makes me lose sleep.

An 8 p-bit computer that Camsari and his collaborators built while he was a graduate student and postdoctoral researcher at Purdue University first showed the device’s potential. Their articlepublished in 2019 in Nature, describes a tenfold reduction in energy and a hundredfold reduction in the footprint it requires compared to a typical computer. Seed funding, provided in fall 2020 by UCSB’s Institute for Energy Efficiency, allowed Camsari and Theogarajan to pursue further p-computer research, supporting work presented in Natural electronics.

“The initial findings, combined with our latest results, mean that building p-computers with millions of p-bits to solve optimization or probabilistic decision-making problems with competitive performance may simply be possible.” , Camsari said.

The research team hopes that one day p-computers will deal with a specific set of naturally probabilistic problems much faster and more efficiently.

Revenue from fixed communication services in India is expected to slope at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.8% to reach US$9.8 billion by 2026 from US$7.4 billion. US dollars in 2021 as estimated by GlobalData, a data analysis. solidify.

This growth can be attributed to a significant increase in the fixed broadband segment.

As the population shifts towards OTT-based models, circuit-switched subscriptions and fixed voice average revenue per subscriber (ARPU) levels have declined.

This could result in fixed voice revenue declining at a CAGR of 4.9% over the period 2021-2026.

“Fixed broadband service revenues, on the other hand, will grow at a CAGR of 7.5% over the period 2021-2026, driven by solid growth in broadband subscriptions, particularly fiber broadband, and the ‘increase in broadband ARPU levels,’ said telecommunications analyst Srikanth Vaidya. at Global Data.

With a strong presence in fiber optic broadband segment, one of the leading telecom service providers in India-

(Jio)- is set to lead India’s fixed broadband services market.

The company’s promotional offers and its efforts to modernize the FTTH network should make it a leader.

“Growing demand for high-speed Internet services and competitively priced fiber broadband packages from carriers offering benefits such as unlimited Internet access and access to major SVoD platforms are expected to drive adoption of the fiber broadband service in India over the forecast period,” Vaidya said.

With ongoing supply chain issues leading to vehicle inventory shortages and higher prices, Nexstar Media Inc. sees no real progress with what has historically been the largest advertising category for TV channel groups.

Nexstar president and chief operating officer Thomas Carter said at this point the company doesn’t see any kind of recovery with the automotive sector, which has been constrained by a shortage of chips and wire harnesses. While it didn’t have a material impact on the business, Carter said there had been “a little more downside,” which was disappointing as a modest rebound in demand was expected. category in the middle of this year.

speaking to Credit Suisse Communications Conference on June 15, Carter said he expects the automotive category to eventually rebound. However, it’s unclear if he’ll return to previous levels of accounting for 25% to 26% of the company’s ad revenue.

Currently, Carter said, the industry’s advertising contribution is parked in the 1920s, but Nexstar has been able to offset some of that downturn through government advertising spending and the revival of tourism and in-person entertainment.

Sports betting takes off

Allocations against sports betting have been strong and Nexstar expects continued growth. Chief Financial Officer Lee Ann Gliha said the company has seen many benefits from sports betting in states such as New York, Illinois and Louisiana, where the practice has recently been adopted.

“We hope to continue to see that,” Gliha said, while also spotlighting Ohio, which will go live in January. The company, she said, has a presence in every state market except Cincinnati.

Gliha noted that three of Nexstar’s top five marketplaces with the category have been live for over a year.

“There is a certain level of ongoing maintenance,” she said while acknowledging that some sports betting operators have shifted to network spending from local purchases. “We’ll kind of have to look at this on a quarterly basis. But for now, it’s still a good sized category for us.”

Potential digital station offerings

As for mergers and acquisitions, Gliha said the company would be interested in deals in the digital realm. Digital contributes up to 7% of the company’s overall turnover and 15% of advertising. “It’s a segment that continues to grow a little faster organically, and we’d like to be more exposed to that,” Gliha said.

She also pointed to the additional station deals as deals that would be “closest to our hearts,” saying the company has the ability to do so in some of the markets where it has The CW (US) or others where there are regulatory opportunities.

Asked about Nexstar’s 31% stake in Food Network (US) through its acquisition of Tribune Media Co. in September 2019, Carter said that with the creation of Warner Bros. Discovery Inc., the stake is less likely to continue in its current form.

Participation in the food network

Carter noted that there are plenty of assets inside Warner Bros. Discovery that Nexstar might be interested in, and that there might be a tax-efficient way to move some of those assets in exchange for the company’s Food Network stock position.

However, he doesn’t see that happening anytime soon, given the current focus of Warner Bros. Discovery on merger-related job cuts. “But we don’t lose sight of the fact that they have a lot of assets and will be rationalizing their own portfolio here in the not too distant future,” Carter said.

Several reports have identified Nexstar as the primary candidate for The CW’s purchase. Launched in September 2006, the young adult broadcast network is a joint venture of the companies now known as Warner Bros. Discovery and Paramount Global.

Meet Huddle01, the startup creating a free web3-based alternative to Zoom https://scotsbeavers.org/meet-huddle01-the-startup-creating-a-free-web3-based-alternative-to-zoom/ Tue, 14 Jun 2022 06:02:00 +0000 https://scotsbeavers.org/meet-huddle01-the-startup-creating-a-free-web3-based-alternative-to-zoom/ Centralized video conferencing platform Zoom has become infamous for its alleged privacy and security breaches, as well as its “zoom-bombing” – a practice where hackers and pranksters rush into virtual meetings and post abusive messages.

Centralized video conferencing platform Zoom has become infamous for its alleged privacy and security breaches, as well as its “zoom-bombing” – a practice where hackers and pranksters rush into virtual meetings and post abusive messages.

Ayush Ranjan and Lavania Summit found it ironic that entrepreneurs and blockchain and Web3 communities still use Zoom for meetings. Although they are supporters of decentralization, Web3 communities always met on a centralized virtual platform.

This inspired the duo (from the LNM Institute of Information Technology) to create a Web3 native real-time communication platform, which would be a decentralized, transparent and secure alternative to Zoom.

As a result, the video conferencing platform Huddle01 was formed.

“Instead of the traditional client-server architecture used by video conferencing platforms, Susmit and I decided to leverage blockchain technology to create Huddle as a peer-to-peer communication platform. ) that was not based on centralized servers. Data moves directly between users via their browsers,” says Ayush Ranjan in a conversation with The story deciphered.

Huddle is free, requires no registration, and does not track user data. It also provides rich Web3 features such as token-gating, NFTs as profile pictures, decentralized storage for meeting recordings (on IPFS and filecoin), decentralized live streaming (on Livepeer), and more.

So far, the project claims to have hosted more than 10,000 meetings for over 4,000 users. He also raised a seed round of $2 million in 2021 from Protocol laboratories and web3 angel investors such as Sandeep Nailwal, Preethi Kasireddy and many more.

Edge of Huddle

Huddle’s mission is to enable seamless video calling while securing users’ online presence, protecting their digital identities and allowing them to express themselves freely, the startup claims.

Indeed, its decentralized network of users (called nodes) allows it to reach low latency and high speeds, rivaling even that of more established centralized video calling platforms such as Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, etc.

“If you’re using Zoom in India, your audio-video data may be routed through North America, and those data packets have to travel long distances due to Zoom’s client-server architecture. Huddle leans on a P2P or node-to-node structure where nodes that are much closer to a specific user are leveraged to host a meeting,” says Susmit.

“Huddle coordinates compute and bandwidth resources around edges to forward audio-video packets through nodes significantly closer to the user. Thus, the distance the data has to travel is reduced by thousands of kilometers. This brings lower latency and higher performance,” he adds.

Additionally, because Huddle is powered by blockchain, data and information on the platform is transparent and visible to nodes. It’s not a “black box” like Zoom’s data system, the co-founders say.

However, centralized communication platforms are optimized for scale and can handle hundreds (in some cases, up to a thousand) of concurrent users in a meeting room.

As an early-stage company, Huddle continues to expand its scalability, even as it seeks to add more supply and demand in terms of user nodes.

“At the moment we can manage 50 people in a meeting room, but we aim to accommodate 100 users at a time. Later this year, we are activating a webinar feature where over a thousand people can join a virtual room,” says Ayush.

In Web3, scalability and supply-demand are often intertwined, as integrating more nodes into its network allows Huddle to scale its video calling capabilities.

With its upcoming token, nodes that are part of the startup’s network are also incentivized to earn.

Revenue model and future plans

Huddle’s revenue model is twofold. He offers Personalized, token-secure video calling and meeting room experiences communities and businesses, and charges a subscription fee for it.

This too rents its infrastructure to people wishing to build or integrate their own audio-video platforms, and charges per user per minute.

Going forward, Huddle is looking to release its whitepaper, introduce grant programs, launch a testnet, and more.

The co-founders remain optimistic about their lofty goal of creating the Web3 alternative for Zoom, especially when it seems like no other player is tackling the same problem for encrypted video calls.

Only certain privacy browsers, like blockchain browser Bravehave enabled video call features.

“We are among the first builders to attempt to build a decentralized real-time communications infrastructure,” Ayush says.

What is sniffing?

In its simplest form, sniffing is the act of intercepting and monitoring traffic on a network. This can be done by using software that captures all data packets passing through a given network interface or by using hardware devices explicitly designed for this purpose.

What is a sniff attack?

A sniffer attack occurs when an attacker uses a packet sniffer to intercept and read sensitive data passing through a network (Biasco, 2021). Common targets for these attacks are unencrypted emails, login credentials, and financial information.

In some cases, attackers can also use sniffing attack tools and packet sniffers to inject malicious code into otherwise harmless data packets in an attempt to hijack a target’s computer or other devices. .

How do hackers intercept packets?

There are several ways for an attacker to capture packets passing through a network. A popular method is to set up a packet sniffer on a computer connected to the network in question. This computer acts as a proxy between the targeted devices and the rest of the world, allowing the attacker to capture all passing traffic.

Another common technique is ARP poisoning, in which the attacker tricks devices on the network into thinking they are communicating with another device when they are not (Grimmick, 2021). This allows the attacker to intercept and read all traffic passing between the two “devices”.

Types of Sniff Attacks

There are two main types of sniff attacks: passive and active.

Passive sniffing

In a passive sniffing attack, the hacker monitors traffic passing through a network without interfering in any way. This type of attack can be useful for gathering information about targets on a network and the types of data (e.g. login credentials, emails) they are transmitting. Because it involves no interference with target systems, it is also less likely to arouse suspicion than other types of attacks.

Active sniffing

Active sniffing is a type of attack that involves sending specially crafted packets to one or more targets on a network to extract sensitive data. By using specially crafted packets, attackers can often bypass security measures that would otherwise prevent data interception. Active sniffing can also involve the injection of malicious code into target systems, allowing attackers to gain control or steal sensitive information.

Consequences of a sniff attack

A successful sniff attack can have several serious consequences for targets. These may include:

  • Loss of sensitive data, such as login credentials, financial information and emails
  • Injection of malicious code into target systems, allowing attackers to control devices or gain access to sensitive information
  • Interruption in network traffic, which can cause communication problems and slow network performance
  • Exposure of confidential information, such as trade secrets and proprietary data
  • Damage to the reputation of the organization whose network has been compromised

“It was reinforced in the last flood how much people rely on communication like radio to make timely decisions during a natural disaster and upgrading the radio network is a critical part,” said he declared.

Griffin said the creation of 200 permanent national park firefighters and 50 conservation officers would boost risk reduction and strengthen firefighting in remote areas.

National Parks and Wildlife Service chief Atticus Fleming said the black summer and subsequent review showed the need for a smarter approach to risk reduction and methods to detect the ignitions and react in real time.

“The survey also recognized how close we were to losing the Wollemi pine, one of the world’s most important natural assets,” he said, adding that the additional resources will enhance the ability of the agency to assist in other natural disasters, such as floods.

Fleming welcomed a $4.5 million investment in agency fleets as well as radio network upgrades.

“I think we were lucky [radio failures] did not significantly increase the safety risks in the Black Summer fires, but it would have been only a matter of time,” he said. “What this does is help everyone access the same network.”

Analysis, research and modeling of climate change scenarios will also be funded as part of an adaptation strategy that aims to integrate adaptation into government decision-making for the assets it manages and operates.

Griffin said that while it would include coping methods in flood-prone areas, it would not prejudge the findings of the ongoing government inquiry into the floods led by Professor Mary O’Kane and the former commissioner. of Mick Fuller font.

Kean added: “Climate change is happening now. Adaptation helps protect the things we value most
floods, droughts and bushfires: it can save lives, livelihoods, homes and ecosystems”.

China said on Tuesday that differences with the Philippines over claims in the Western Philippine Sea can be managed through “bilateral consultation and friendly communication.”

“We are two neighbors who have differences, but what is crucial is how we deal with the differences. We should manage our differences with bilateral consultation and friendly communication,” the Chinese ambassador told reporters. Philippines, Huang Xilian, during the rotation of various broadcast equipment donated by China to Secretary of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO), Martin Andanar.

Huang responded when asked about the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) decision to summon a senior official from the Chinese Embassy in Manila a week ago to protest harassment by the Chinese Coast Guard of a Philippine vessel engaged in research activities. in the Western Philippine Sea.

The DFA, in a statement, said the illegal activities around Ayungin Shoal are subject to diplomatic protest “in exercise of the sovereign rights and jurisdiction of the Philippines over Ayungin Shoal, which is part of the economic zone exclusive jurisdiction and continental shelf of the Philippines, as affirmed by the 2016 South China Sea Arbitration Award.”

“I refer you to the Secretary of Defense’s statement just recently. We have been communicating with them diplomatically and peacefully as part of our joint efforts to ensure peace and stability in the South China Sea,” said Huang.

Huang was referring to Philippine Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana.

“As Secretary Lorenzana said, diplomacy is working well and we continue to manage our differences with diplomatic and peaceful means,” Huang added.

Huang also said that the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) has maintained good relations with its Chinese counterpart and vice versa.

“The PCG maintains good communication with the Chinese coast guard. The commander of the Chinese coast guard visited here two weeks after my arrival in this beautiful country and they had a very good exchange of views. China also received a delegation from the PCG,” Huang said. .

“It would be very important for them to maintain this kind of friendly exchanges and cooperation so that they can fulfill their duty which promotes our bilateral relations as well as peace and stability in the South China Sea,” he said. added.

The Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) in The Hague in July 2016 has already rejected China’s nine-dash claim to the entire South China Sea and ruled that the Spratly Islands, Panganiban Reef (Mischief), Ayungin (Second Thomas) Bank, and Recto (Reed) Bank are within the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of the Philippines.

The decision stems from the case filed in 2013 by the Philippine government against China in connection with repeated Chinese aggressions against Filipino fishermen in the EEZ of the Philippines, located 200 nautical miles from territorial waters under the United Nations Convention Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

China, however, refused to recognize the Philippines’ unprecedented legal victory to date. —KG, GMA News
