Review of the week: Automated computing, security, and end-to-end computing

Cars and Mobility

US President Joe Biden announce Approval of $900 million to fund a nationwide network of electric vehicle charging stations in 35 states. The money is part of a $7.5 billion multi-year plan to build 500,000 charging stations along federal highways.

Industry executives said Reuters That remote human supervisors may be a constant part of highly autonomous cars. For years, self-driving companies have told consumers that L5 self-driving vehicles are only a few months or years away from commercial viability. These companies have struggled to overcome the technical challenges of developing a car that can “think” like a human when faced with a new situation.

What will auto insurance look like in the independent future? According to new McKinsey Reportthe answer includes about $5 billion in annual premiums that go from individual consumers to auto OEMs and vehicle software providers.

Formula 1ruling guild determinant Siemens As the “Official Resource for PLM Sustainability Programs”. Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA)FIA) said it would begin using Siemens Xcelerator products “to enable vehicle design and regulations that reduce energy consumption and emissions.” “If motorsports achieve carbon neutrality, any industry can. Through this collaboration, we plan to influence public perceptions and promote sustainable mobility,” said Cedric Nike, Siemens AG Board Member and Chief Digital Officer.

arteries And the an arm announce Partnership that includes integrating Arm processors with Arteris IP to assemble SoCs for automobiles. “Arteris continues to see very strong demand for automotive systems due to growing demands for intelligence and sensing and the resulting need for high-performance computing with advanced system-on-chip connectivity,” said K. Charles Janac, Arteris President and CEO. “We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Arm to accelerate best-in-class solutions to support semiconductor companies, Tier 1 suppliers, vehicle manufacturers, and ride-sharing companies in creating a new world of transportation.”

Tesla Hot Chips conference goers have given another peek at the Project Dojo AI supercomputer, which the company is using to train neural networks on its driving technology. according to Rhythm Blog post, Dojo’s architecture includes 25 chips with 354 processors each mounted on a chip-sized interference module, with vertical cooling and power supplies. Meanwhile, rhythm has had its own results this week: an AI-driven movement Verification platform Shared enterprise data and artificial intelligence (Jedi) A platform for developing an AI-driven chip design.

Tesla It is also a new target class actionwhich claims that the automated and self-driving technology does not do what the company promised.


Many US and international cybersecurity agencies warned The public from cyber attacks said to be linked to the Iranian government’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The agencies said attackers are exploiting vulnerabilities in VMware Horizon Log4j, Fortinet, and Microsoft Exchange.

Photo and video deepfakes have been a problem for years, and now malicious parties are using it voice and speech to compromise security. In one case, thieves used audio simulation software to convince an employee that her boss was asking her to transfer nearly a quarter of a million dollars to a secret bank account.

CISA and the The National Security Agency Published a paper entitledOpen Wireless Access Network Security Considerations.“Open RAN is an exciting concept, one that opens many doors for innovation, improved network performance, and a more diverse and competitive cyber ecosystem,” said CISA Assistant Administrator Mona Harrington. “However, with these benefits comes the potential for additional security concerns. As a community, we must work together not only to identify these concerns but also to develop practices and structure to mitigate them.”

Meanwhile, the FBI warns of the chances of a cyber attack on and Outdated medical devices.

The spread of computing and the Internet of things

Flexlogix a statement AI-embedded mini-ITX to simplify embedded and edge AI deployment. The company said potential applications include traffic junction monitoring, data anonymization and privacy, and monitoring of patients and autonomous machines, among others. “Adding AI heuristics to a product can change the rules of the revenue-generating game and be able to leverage an established industry standard that accelerates development and time to market,” said Barrie Mullins, Vice President of Product Management at Flex Logix.
