I am writing blog after a long time. My previous blog site was saurass.home.blog do give It a look.
So guys it’s 2021 and a lot of things have changed since the last time I wrote this blogs. The most hot event that we all encountered around the globe was CoronaVirus pandemic of 2020. Eventually it felt like this is the ultimate D-day. Lockdowns, sanitizations, masks etc. Felt like a different world. At a point of time, the complete globe was at a halt. Somehow the pandemic failed to manage to vanish half of the earth’s population.
About me, Hi I am Saurabh Srivastava, Software Engineer, Innovative thinker, code craftsmen and CoronaVirus Pandemic survivor (Yes, It’s an achievement not letting virus get you). Year 2020 was mostly about Data Structures and Algorithm to me. Learned lot’s of stuffs and solved some great problems.
Year 2020 also brought a lot of new innovations to Computer Science fields. Let’s have a look at a few
Non-volatile memory (NVM) products, interfaces and applications.
NVM Express (NVMe) SSDs will replace SATA and SAS SSDs within the next few years, and NVMe-oF will be the dominant network storage protocol in five years. NVMe enables NAND tiering technologies and programming functions that increase endurance, enable computational storage, and allow more memory-like access to data. Emerging memory technologies such as MRAM, ReRAM and PCM will provide future higher performance NVMe devices.
AI/ML applied to cybersecurity
Cybersecurity is one of the key risks for any business today. The growing attack surface includes amateur threats, sophisticated distributed denial of service attacks, and skilled nation-state actors. Defense depends on security analysts who are rare, lack adequate training, and have high turnover rates. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) can help detect threats and offer recommendations to security analysts. AI/ML can drive down response times from hundreds of hours to seconds and scale analyst effectiveness from one or two incidents to thousands daily. It can preserve corporate knowledge and use it to automate tasks and train new analysts. We predict advancing the adoption of AI/ML applied to cybersecurity through a partnership among members of industry, academia, and government on a global scale.
At the beginning of 2020, experimental quantum computer demonstrations consume about 1/10,000 the energy of the world’s largest supercomputers while outperforming them by 1,000x or more — yet the demonstrated applications look like quantum computer self-tests. If quantum computers are destined to be successful, they will come about by increasing relevance and generality, having already demonstrated a computational advantage. We project demonstrations to become more compelling in the next year. For example, a quantum computer might perform a chemical simulation impossible by any standard supercomputer, leading to a more nuanced debate about whether the chemical that may be discovered will be useful to society.
Mind operated devices
Despite the dazzling progress of electronic devices in recent decades, one thing has not changed since the first personal computers were sold in the 1970s, and that is our way of interacting with them: we still use our hands, which makes these technologies doubly digital, both because of the binary coding system and because of the use of our fingers.
However, the active field of research of brain-computer interfaces aims to free us from this tyranny of the fingers and allow us to operate our devices with commands from our mind. This technology was one of the trends highlighted at the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2020, held this January in Las Vegas. As an example, the French company NextMind presented a brain-sensing device that attaches to the head and allows users to change the channels of the television or move the characters of a video game by fixing their view on specific places on the screen. The still pending leap to controlling devices with thought guarantees that we will soon see new advances in this line of research.
let’s catch up in my next blog, where I will discuss my learnings, projects, experiences and a lot more. Till then as always
