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.
Over at the Parallella Blog, Andreas Olafsson from Adapteva writes that the company has reached an important milestone on its next-generation Epiphany-V chip. “Thanks to a generous grant from DARPA, we just taped out a 16nm chip with 1024 64-bit processor cores. To give a comparison, our 4.5B transistor chip is smaller than Apple’s latest A10 chip and has 256 times as many processors. The chip offers an 80x processor density advantage over high performance chips from Intel and Nvidia.”
In this video from the 2015 RubyConf event in Columbia, Ray Hightower presents: Parallella Supercomputing. “Parallella is a single-board supercomputer smaller than a deck of cards. While today’s fastest laptops contain four processor cores, Parallella has eighteen (2 ARM cores plus an Epiphany chip with 16 RISC cores). The maker of Parallella, Adapteva, is on a mission to democratize parallel computing. The company’s tag line is Supercomputing for Everyone.”
Over at Parallella.org, Adapteva Founder & CEO Andreas Olofsson writes that the organization is seeking help from its user community to “help build the most efficient virtual supercomputer in the world this week.”
In this video from Primeur Magazine, Andreas Olofsson from Adapteva unveils the Adapteva A-1 prototype supercomputer at ISC’14. Based on the company’s 64-core Epiphany chip, the system sports a total 2112 RISC cores in a very small space while consuming only 200 Watts.
