Researchers design chip that identifies defects, monitors performance

A team of researchers have designed a new solution to malicious circuitry in device chips. The team’s chip contains an embedded module that monitors its own computations and flags defects before attackers can sabotage devices. The embedded module proves its own calculations are correct, and its external module validates the first module’s proofs. Siddharth Garg, … continue reading

New IBM technology aims to detect cancer, Kaspersky Lab bug bounty program, and Jama Software launches partner alliance program—SD Times news digest: Aug. 2, 2016

IBM this week announced that its scientists have developed a new lab-on-a-chip technology that can separate biological particles at the nano scale to help physicians detect things like cancer. IBM said its team can separate bioparticles down to 20 nanometers in diameter, which is the scale of things like DNA and viruses. These particles can … continue reading

MIT CSAIL’s new algorithm, Samsung announces new IoT strategy, and Dell sells its software group—SD Times news digest: June 21, 2016

Machines that can better understand human interactions could open up new possibilities for robots, which is why researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) trained an algorithm that can anticipate human interactions more accurately than before. The algorithm was trained on YouTube videos and TV shows like “The Office” and “Desperate Housewives.” … continue reading

New chip by MIT researchers may push IoT technology, and Ford and Pivotal team up on FordPass software—SD Times news digest: Feb. 8, 2016

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have designed a new chip specifically to implement neural networks. This chip may enable mobile devices to run powerful artificial intelligence algorithms and help “usher” along the Internet of Things. The chip is 10x as efficient as a mobile GPU, so it could enable devices to run … continue reading
