Qualcomm is definitely successfully competing with Intel in the needless-secrecy department :-/
 
Congratulations +Qualcomm on acquiring +NXP Semiconductors. Some are equating you to a 21st century Intel in the making. Good. They need the competition in every market and you are one of the rare few that are able to take them on everywhere. Bring on the fight.

It doesn't look like much, yet, but I think the race in coming years is won by open source CPUs like RISCV. Someone pointed out a good reason to me recently: it's way easier to think of building 1024-core RISCV systems than systems where you pay a tax on every core. It's the Linux argument all over again: one thing that made large scale Linux clusters significantly cheaper than windows clusters was the per-node licensing cost of windows. Microsoft couldn't fix that cost problem without breaking their economic model for single node license prices. It's hard to see how you make, e.g., a 1024-core ARM chip practical without making the single-core ARM chip licensing cost too low ...

I promise that wasn't me (even though I share large parts of the sentiment)

I believed in trigger warnings when I taught a course on sex and film. Then they drove me out of the academy

And then what?

To increase visibility, I converted the OpenFirmware related subversion repositories that I co-admin to git and pushed them to GitHub.

(If this helps bring an end to running a subversion server, all the better)

not better. popular.

Also, this is not coordinated with the projects, so these are just mirrors

"Ich darf Leben nicht gegeneinander aufrechnen." So bleiben wohl nur zwei Möglichkeiten: autonome Autos verbieten oder bestehende moralische Kategorien überdenken. Hilgendorf[, Leiter der Forschungsstelle RobotRecht an der Uni Würzburg] plädiert für Letzteres: "Wir müssen zu einer Quantifizierung von Menschenleben kommen."

Man könnte ja damit anfangen, dass Mitglieder juristischer Fakultäten in ethisch komplexen Fällen bevorzugt überfahren werden dürfen.

Ein Algorithmus für autonome Autos, der die Zahl der Opfer bei einem Verkehrsunfall minimieren würde, dürfte in Deutschland nicht implementiert werden. Das berichtet Technology Review in seiner aktuellen Ausgabe.

Für einen Artikel in einer Wald-und-Wiesen Zeitung erstaunlich detailliert.

Hacker können auch über Lücken im Betriebssystem oder in der Chip-Steuerung in Rechner eindringen. Das ist vor allem in der Energieversorgung und bei Banken heikel. Die Bundesregierung fordert hier absolute Kontrolle über die Computer – aber geht das?

+Bill Richardson Mojave desert, uhoh... Not sure if I'd dare walking from that to the next settlement.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otzberg_Castle certainly has some headstart. From reading the article, it probably wasn't so appealing in the first few hundred years, so maybe there's still a chance for Volcano House to become more hospitable ;-)

(and I totally agree with the sentiment in your link that it looks like a supervillain's lair)
