The future of authentication and transactions over the web (Part 1)

Banks and the payment industry have realized long ago that knowledge is not enough to confirm money transactions through the web. Even apparently strong techniques such as tokens and smartcards have been facing the challenge to deal with Malware and Hacker attacks. Then, to avoid blind signing, institutions have been appealing to external devices, which are likely to fail due to network flaws or challenging user experience.

    Performance test suit for industrial real time applications

    Lately I have been working on several custom micro benchmarks for industrial automation vendors. These benchmarks measure perfromance characteristics of embedded platforms that are relevant for achieving hard real time response for high frequency (8-32kHz) motion control applications. Some of the benchmarks and a runtime could be useful for a wider audience so I am publishing them now.

    PARTICIPE DO APPLAB INTEL QUE ACONTECE NO DIA 27 DE JUNHO!


     

    VOCÊ ESTÁ SENDO CONVIDADO!

    A Intel e o SOFTEX estão convidando os melhores desenvolvedores e empresas para participar do APPLAB INTEL que acontecerá no dia 27 de junho (Quinta-Feira) no escritório da Intel em São Paulo localizado na Av. Doutor Chucri Zaidan, 940 – Market Place Tower II – 10o. Andar.

    Finding the right fit for your application on Intel® Xeon® and Intel® Xeon Phi™ processors

    Not all applications are created equal.   Some are chomping at the bit to harvest as much parallelism as a target platform can provide.  Those may be good candidates for running on an Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor.  Other applications are scalar (not vectorized) and sequential (not threaded).  They won't even make full use of an Intel Xeon processor, much less an Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor.  Before moving to a highly-parallel platform, the developer-tuner needs to expose enough parallelism to hit the limits of the Intel Xeon platform.  Once the demand for threads an

    Going Local to Become Global: The Benefits of Localizing Software

    Most road maps for software development include a marketing plan that will expand the audience for the app, but few include a strategy for localization. Localization moves beyond simple translation, and results in an app that can be used seamlessly by a native speaker. It also expands the software’s audience by opening up markets in other locations. Though translators and developers often share a common goal, their processes can be at odds leading to a rocky localization process.

    Monitoring Intel® Transactional Synchronization Extensions with Intel® PCM

    After applying a new technology (a new processor, a hardware accelerator, a new instruction, etc) besides measuring the immediate performance delta one requires a method to verify that this technology has been applied correctly and efficiently. Intel® Transactional Synchronization Extensions (Intel® TSX - instructions for speculative execution of critical sections protected by locks) are not an exception here.

    Introduction

    One of the challenges in computer vision applications is segmentation-the separation of desired objects from their surroundings. Early techniques separated objects by color or contrast. With the introduction of time of flight infrared cameras, it became possible to segment objects by their distance from the camera.
