Spectre and Meltdown Explained, and a Proposed Counter Against Them

On January 15, 2018, 2:58 AM PST, Josh Fruhlinger wrote Spectre and Meltdown explained: What they are, how they work, what’s at risk . As threats, regarding these two risks, Spectre and Meltdown, Fruhlinger wrote, “In the first days of 2018, published research revealed that nearly ever computer chip manufactured in the last 20 years contains fundamental security flaws, with specific variations on those flaws being dubbed Spectre and Meltdown ” (Fruhlinger, Jan 15, 2018). Fruhlinger was stating this: despite the best known efforts Electrical Engineers and Computer Scientists exercised, computer chip technology dated 1998 AD - 2018 AD has experienced an error, design flaws, that led to known defects, Spectre and Meltdown, and these are potentially great failures.  Side-channel technology requires high grade technical research, and this can be because Spectre and Meltdown exist, so a layman would not have known it, 22 years ago. According to Josh Fruhlinger, speculative execution and cac

In response to the Institute of Industrial Science, the University of Tokyo’s Circular Reasoning: Spiral Circuits for More Efficient AI

Circular Reasoning On June 14, 2020, the IIS (Institute of Industrial Science) at the UTokyo (University of Tokyo) wrote  Circular Reasoning: Spiraling Circuits for More Efficient AI ; but a Press Release from this institute is giving a synopsis on this topic. On this press release, the IIS wrote, “Researchers from the Institute of Industrial Science at the University of Tokyo designed and built specialized computer hardware consisting of stacks of memory modules arranged in a 3D-spiral for artificial intelligence (AI) applications” (IIS, June 14, 2020). The IIS continued on, saying this research is allowing a singular way work can be done regarding the next generation energy efficient AI devices (Here is a current generation, but energy efficient, AI device, Android Pie: link ) shall be implemented into production.             The Fundamentals of Machine Learning                On this press release, the IIS is explaining the fundamentals of ML (Machine Learning). The IIS wrote, “Mach

COVID-19 Made Internet Access, Broadband and Hotspots an Educational Necessity

I am ready After a hiatus: with the readers, I am ready.  COVID-19 Made Internet Access, Broadband and Hotspots an Educational Necessity   On June 9, 2020, the IEEE Transmitter (Institute for Electricians and Electrical Engineers Transmitter) wrote COVID-19 Made Internet Access, Broadband and Hotspots an Educational Necessity . In this Transmitter article, the IEEE wrote that numerous students experienced academic difficulties because of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, causing widespread problems. The IEEE wrote, “while virtual learning helps reduce the risk of person-to-person transmission, schools were presented with a new problem: how to ensure every student has internet access so they could continue their education remotely” ( IEEE ). On the other hand, IEEE Senior Member David Witkowski is enthusiastic about a mobile generation of learners, but concerned regarding people enfortressed only to stay there and avoid public establishments. Witkowski is saying this: even on digital p
