In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the issue of security for Augmented Reality and IoT. Now that every device in our lives is getting connected to the Internet, how will be prevented from attackers? Henry points out that even our medical devices are not safe any more. After that, we wrap things up in our Catch of the Week:
- Shahin likes the recent story about a home-built “Megaprocessor” built for Tetris. The room-sized machine does the job of a chip-sized microprocessor and its inventor James Newman has spent £40,000 ($53,000) creating it.
- Dan is amused by the story about a pair of Silicon Valley billionaires who want to break the universal simulation that they believe we are all part of.
- Rich is impressed with the news that Adapteva has taped out their new 1024-core Epiphany-V chip.
