The cables complement existing copper iPass+ HD connector and cable offerings and are designed to provide large-scale enterprise and data center storage system customers with a complete end-to-end solution.
A computer program called the Never Ending Image Learner (NEIL) is running 24 hours a day at Carnegie Mellon University, searching the Web for images, doing its best to understand them on its own and, as it builds a growing visual database, gathering common sense on a massive scale.
Researchers are investigating the complex relationships between the spread of the HIV virus in a population and the actual evolution of the virus within each patient’s body using a new modeling approach that distinguishes between susceptible and infected individuals, capturing the full infection history.
The 66AK2H14 KeyStone System-on-chip (SoC) and Evaluation Module (EVM) is designed to kickstart development of high performance compute systems. This device provides developers access to a 10 Gbps Ethernet switch-on-chip and other high-speed interfaces, including PCIe, RapidIO, Hyperlink, 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps Ethernet, achieving total I/O throughput of up to 154 Gbps.
An international team of European and Japanese scientists led by the University of York has launched a €4.6m collaborative project funded by the European Commission (EC) and the Japanese Science and Technology Agency (JST) to develop new materials to replace the scarce metal Iridium commonly used in magnetic storage devices.
PITTSBURGH—Carnegie Mellon University computer scientists have developed a new password system that incorporates inkblots to provide an extra measure of protection when, as so often occurs, lists of passwords get stolen from websites. This new type of password, dubbed a GOTCHA (Generating panOptic Turing Tests to Tell Computers and Humans Apart), would be suitable for protecting high-value...
In his 1937 book, "Think and Grow Rich," author Napoleon Hill identified 13 steps to success, one of which was the power of the mastermind. "No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible, intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind," Hill wrote.
Verena Wolf, professor of computer science at Saarland University, just won the award “Germany’s best innovators under 35. Wolf does her research on the simulation of complex cell processes. In this way, Wolf and her colleagues are able to reconstruct the development of whole cell populations with their new software within...
The Ultrastar He6 hard disk drive (HDD) features the HelioSeal platform, designed to provide a path for higher capacity storage and significantly low customer total cost of ownership (TCO). Leveraging the inherent benefits of helium, which is one-seventh the density of air, the drive features a 7Stac disk design with 6TB, making the high-capacity HDD a good choice for cloud storage, massive scale-out environments, disk-to-disk backup, and replicated or RAID environments.
IBM inventors have developed a technique for protecting sensitive data prior to transmitting it to the cloud. The patented invention is designed to overcome barriers to client adoption of cloud computing solutions by ensuring that private or proprietary information is secured before transferring it for processing by cloud computing services.
Over the next century, most of the continents are on track to become considerably warmer, with more hot extremes and fewer cold extremes. Precipitation will increase in some parts of the world but will decrease in other parts. These are some of the conclusions reached by Berkeley Lab scientist Michael Wehner and his co-authors on the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
MetroX TX6240 and TX6280 systems are designed to enable full coverage for longer distances. The MetroX long-haul interconnect product family enables localization of remote data center sites, from 1km to 80km, to guarantee high-performance, high-volume data sharing between distant sites, and enable existing data center expansion, rapid disaster recovery and improved utilization of remote storage and compute infrastructures.
NASA's first-ever deep space craft, Orion, has been powered on for the first time, marking a major milestone in the final year of preparations for flight. Preliminary data indicate Orion's vehicle management computer, as well as its innovative power and data distribution system — which use state-of-the-art networking capabilities — performed as expected.
When Israel's military chief recently delivered a high-profile speech outlining the greatest threats his country might face in the future, he listed computer sabotage as a top concern, warning a sophisticated cyberattack could one day bring the nation to a standstill. Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz was not speaking empty words.
Scientists have a new way to edge around a difficult problem in quantum physics, now that a research team has proved their recent theory about how particles of light flow within a novel device they built.
Researchers have demonstrated how to produce electronic inks for the development of new applications using the 'wonder material,' carbon nanotubes.
IBM Research has unveiled two new Watson-related cognitive technologies that are expected to help physicians make more informed and accurate decisions faster and to cull new insights from electronic medical records (EMR). The projects known as "WatsonPaths" and "Watson EMR Assistant" are the result of a year-long research collaboration with faculty, physicians and students
Lockheed Martin has opened its fourth Security Intelligence Centre (SIC) in Australia's national capital, Canberra, continuing the company's international extension of its cyber defense network. The Centre was opened October 3, 2013, by Sondra Barbour, executive vice president of Lockheed Martin's Information Systems and Global Solutions.
Light might be able to play a bigger, more versatile role in the future of quantum computing, according to new research by Yale University scientists. A team of Yale physicists has coaxed an unprecedented number of light particles, or photons, to behave quantum mechanically
HP has unveiled the results from a global study conducted by the Ponemon Institute, indicating that the cost, frequency and time to resolve cyberattacks continue to rise for the fourth consecutive year. Conducted by the Ponemon Institute and sponsored by HP Enterprise Security Products, the 2013 Study found that the average annualized cost of cybercrime incurred by a benchmark sample of U.S. organizations was $11.56 million
In an advance that could dramatically shrink particle accelerators for science and medicine, researchers used a laser to accelerate electrons at a rate 10 times higher than conventional technology in a nanostructured glass chip smaller than a grain of rice. The achievement was reported in Nature by a team including scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University.
While a good painter uses simple strokes of a brush to bring texture to a blank canvas, computer programs can have difficulty reproducing the complex and varied forms of brushstrokes. Now, a team of researchers has developed a program that allows graphic artists to produce more realistic brushstrokes on their computers.
A team of engineers has built a basic computer using carbon nanotubes, a semiconductor material that has the potential to launch a new generation of electronic devices that run faster, while using less energy, than those made from silicon chips.
Hiroshi Yamauchi, who ran Nintendo for more than 50 years and led the Japanese company's transition from traditional playing-card maker to video game giant, has died. He was 85.
