Short video describing our article in this month's issue of the Communications of the ACM. Article link: https://cacm.acm.org/magazines/2017/4/215032-attack-of-the-killer-microseconds/fulltext
The fact that many computer systems currently lack support for microsecond-scale events is quickly becoming a serious problem, especially for programming warehouse-scale computers, where efficient handling of microsecond-scale events is becoming paramount for a new breed of low-latency I/O devices. In this video, Luis Barroso discusses "Attack of the Killer Microseconds,” a Contributed Article in the April 2017 issue of Communications of the ACM.

Google's re:work team has published in their blog a one-pager I wrote internally at Google a couple of years ago about one of our most successful (and less publicized) approaches to innovation.

Google software engineers have been using some serious new toys to build powerful machine learning (ML) applications. You've known a bit about the software part of it (like tensorflow.org). Yesterday we announced a remarkable piece of hardware that is optimized for ML.

My current team in the Google Geo product area has pioneered the use of these devices to extract information from images (see https://goo.gl/Q8mNPR, or the papers in http://research.google.com/pubs/SachaArnoud.html).

If you are a computer programmer with expertise in machine learning and interested solving some challenging AI problems (and playing with some cool new hardware), please see our job posting at https://goo.gl/xEddQi, or contact Sacha Arnoud (our Director of Smart Imagery) at sacha@google.com.

More information on the networking gear we have been building at Google for the last decade or so is being made public today. It's an amazing story that many of us have been waiting a long time to talk about, so I'm delighted to see it out there.

It is an accomplishment for not only our design teams but our deployment and operations teams just as much.

+Jim Dehnert's many wonderful bird photos has gotten me hooked into learning how to take wildlife pictures, so I thought I'd share this one to thank him for the inspiration.
