A Look at Big Old Expensive Servers

Recently, I heard a term for companies (specifically IT leaders) who actively resist the move to the cloud – “Server Huggers.” But, what exactly are they are clinging on to?  This Does Not Compute shows you.

Towards Spike-Based Machine Intelligence with Neuromorphic Computing

Hardware is getting interesting again. Here’s an interesting paper published in Nature about Neuromorphic Computing. Abstract below: Guided by brain-like ‘spiking’ computational frameworks, neuromorphic computing—brain-inspired computing for machine intelligence—promises to realize artificial intelligence while reducing the energy requirements of computing platforms. This interdisciplinary field began with the implementation of silicon circuits for biological neural routines, […]

Intro to Hardware Reversing: Finding a UART and Getting a Shell

Tony Gambacorta shows you how to explore your hardware with a serial port. If you’re interested in hardware but haven’t had a chance to play with any yet, this one’s for you. In this “hello world”-level reversing project we’re checking out a UART (serial port) and using it to access a shell on a *very* […]

Deep Learning with TensorFlow and Intel – a hardware and software guide for beginners

Deep learning is central to recent innovations in AI. If you don’t want to run your code in the cloud and prefer to build your own local rig optimized for TensorFlow and machine learning, then this post is for you. One point to note is that TensorFlow has a slightly unusual computation scheme which might […]
