I chose a topic titled The Future of Computing Depends On Making It Reversible. I found it
fascinating because it taught me some things about the past In this article it talks about the
evolution of the processors over the years. From the single core processors to the multi-core
ones we use today. It is expected that the processors will stop getting faster in the near future
because they are already as small as they can go and they have parts of what is referred to as
"dark silicon, parts of the chip that are turned off to reduce heat. This article taught me a lot
and was a good source for the inner workings of processors. The topic I chose to write about
is the 3D printed ventilator for the COVID-19 patients. I chose to write about this topic
because even before this pandemic, our scientist, and doctors have been trying to come up
with a cure for this virus. Hospitals are full, and ventilators are being used up. This could
help a lot of people because this 3D printed ventilator could possible help about 20 corona
virus patients at once instead of each patient using one ventilator at a time which could take
them up quite faster. This could possibly alleviate the COVID-19 cases, and empty out the
hospitals a bit and it could also help the death rate. Since COVID-19 is a respiratory disease,
ventilators will be in constant use at least until a vaccine is brought about. After reading the
article, Mohamed Ishag explained to us how they would be used. According to Ishag who
has his masters degree in electrical engineering, the 3D printer device is made of an oxygen
supply line an air compressor and a UV light that sterilizes the air.Ishag explains that it's
pulled from the supply line and passes through a valve which distributes air to the patients.
Increasing the computing power of the processors has become a growing need. With the
latest advancements in technology, chiplets are being used for the remaking of the
processors. Intel and AMD are increasingly becoming dependant on the chiplets to boost the
performance of the computers. The growing need to reduce the large chip sizes and ever
increasing costs have led to the evolution of a solution (Moore, 2019). Now, processors are
being constructed with smaller-sized chiplets that are less expensive combined with high
bandwidth connections in a single package.
Intel used Foveros, a 3D chiplet integration technology to produce Lakefield mobile
processor. With high-data-rate, Foveros helps in providing more data and power, thereby
enhancing the overall power of the processor (Moore, 2019). It helps in boosting graphics
computation and consumes only one-tenth of the standby power. Foveros enables high
performance computing.
Chiplets are growing to become the ultimate future of the processors. The chiplet technology
will help in enhancing the capability and performance of the processors, thereby leading to
enhanced computing. Chiplets will enable the remaking of the computer systems .It would
also result in the availability of more flexible, cheaper, and mix-and-match systems. With
the use of the less expensive technology, availing high performance computing becomes
possible. The article i choose to write is, How Online Learning Kept Higher Education Open
During the Coronavirus Pedemic. I chose this article because, I find it very intriguing and
challenging to kids, young and old people. Online learning is something I truly enjoy doing,
but not everyone enjoys online learning. Technology has become the only source of learning
that we can depend on, which is very scary, challenging and yet a very big push to our
brains if used proper. Online learning is not something that the older generation is used too.
They struggle alot with having to know how to access the internet for their basic uses. Now
they have to actually learn online if they are in school, which makes it more complicated and
difficult. The coronavirus has made having to study online harder to so many people. I just
hope we can get through this Pandemic. That will give so many people a chance to study a
more happier healthier way for their brains. The topic I chose to read was “Sony Builds AI
Into a CMOS Image Sensor” it’s Basically a machine that can take a small section of a
image and find its originality and also the battery life last almost a year of one battery , The
article also mentioned other companies have this idea but they are the 1st to actually
distribute. The benefit of such a system is that it can discard all kinds of unnecessary or
unwanted data before that data ever goes into the main device’s storage or processing
pipeline this intelligent pro type is only a prototype available for testing but not production
you may expect a higher drawer or latency from a chip integrated AL processes. Cameras
could easily go blur on a object in public but the image sensor picks up everything very clear
it also has the ability to edit images and do all kinds of cropping ect basically it’s making
your images as perfect as possible for even being sent to the main logic board ect I’ve
learned that technology is advancing very rapidly and it Makes me more excited for the
future. The article I found interesting was on the right to repair movement and the
widespread effects it has. Managing several Apple products, I am very familiar with the
difficulty of repairing and upgrading devices. However, I was unaware of widespread impact
that it has on other areas of life. The example they give in the article is how farmers are now
struggling to maintain and repair the software used to run their equipment. What was once
analog levers and valves are now buttons an switches found in the cab. I am hoping that
manufacturers will start to embrace the right to repair movement. In the past, I have replaced
iPhone screen which wasn’t necessarily hard but finding the parts needed was extremely
difficult. However even when I had found the parts I needed the price for them almost made
it more worth my time to just buy a new phone. If you remember landline phones, you will
recall that when it was broke, it was repaired by "the phone company", i.e. AT&T.The fact
is modern tech is complex and requires extremely expensive equipment to manufacture and
repair. Frequently, one of the issues that makes repair so difficult is a design decision to
allow for exactly the convenience and form factor consumers demand. Chiplets is the new
way of building the boards means combinations of other processors under one chip so they
can interconnect and give maximum throughput.The chiplets uses mix-match means users
can take different processor chips and integrate them into one chip which gives better
performance and speed.While designing such chiplets, cost and size is the main issue which
can be corrected in upcoming years. Some researchers have use different chip processors
and build the chiplets which are more powerful than ever.Combining other brand processors
is always risk because the different power consumptions, clock speed, compatibility and
performance issues can cost you entire project.In current market only one approach has used
which is mix and match by testing different processors under one chip. This complex
process followed by many companies and they tied up with other companies to build highly
reliable processors and reduces cost. In world many of the student seeking career in IT
technologies and IEEE like institutes are providing many solutions and courses to become
professional. IEE also has its own blog where peoples share their experiences and discuss
the new and old technology related stuff. On the internet many sites showing the latest
market news and technologies which can have future in upcoming years.IEE spectrum is
another kind of information site and blog where all latest engineering an technological
information presented. In current market many industries are looking for more compact and
reliable technologies. To survive in such market every individual need to be updated their
skill so they can match up with industry. The latest new trends and technologies can be seen
in IEEE sites so, other professionals are keep reading such articles about new and upcoming
technologies. The drawbacks of old technologies and solutions with new technologies been
seen on the site.All electronic chip manufacturing companies and their R&D department
keep looking into new technologies so they can easily develop new software and chips
which can be more powerful and technology compatible. The artical that I chose to write
about from the IEEE Spectrum is the COVID-19 Digital Contact Tracing where Apple and
Google emerged and worked together as MIT tests validity. I thought this was very
intriguing that the two largest smart technology software developers in the world come
together to win the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic but will this create a breach in our
privacy. The artical states that these "software developers have built digital contact tracing
apps for Apple and Google mobile operating systems, which jointly encompass the majority
of smartphones around the world".In perspective this system can automatically notify people
when they cross paths with someone that has tested positive for COVID-19. According to
this article, other countries have already started using this system and it seems to be working
for them. Will the United States follow suit? Apple and Google have made our privacy thier
main focus. They stated that the "apps using their contact tracing application interfaces or
API's is only for use of government health authorities and that people must consent before
sharing positive test results". This basically entails that the PACT project or the "Private
Automated Contact Tracing" system uses "bluetooth signals or "chirps" from phones within
a 6-foot radius. I think technology has come to reach outstanding heights in order to come
together against the fight of this invisible giant walking amongst us all. The question is will
state health officials use this technology and an even better question is are we willing to use
it?. The article that I chose to write about this week is about how Sony built an AI into a
CMOS Image Sensor. It uses machine learning to figure out what is being put to the sensor.
This is very interesting, as the AI gets more objects and images placed into its sensor it will
become more and more precise. The reason that i am interested in this piece of technology
would be due to the fact that if it becomes advanced enough, will it be able to recognize
individual people? With social media being as popular as it currently is and understanding
that data can be purchased from these platforms, it wouldn't be very difficult to scan profile
pictures and have a name for the face. Using this technology for surveillance could greatly
increase the security cameras effectiveness.Understanding the possibilities of technology
will help you get an idea of what is to come in the future, or what could have went wrong in
the past. Reading this article gave me an idea of how to troubleshoot computers by critically
thinking about all the possibilities. Understanding what the component does and what would
happen if it ceased to work. The article I choose to write about from IEEE SPECTRUM
page is temperature screening device, contactless outdoor temperature check stations screens
people before they enter buildings. We all know that covid 19 has cause change in this
world. The disease has been spreading and infected hundreds of thousands of people all over
the world and has caused many to be out of jobs, staying at home and have taken many
lives. These engineers are trying to develop a new device that can scan people temperature
to reduce spreading covid 19.
They have station which contain infrared temperature sensor which a person would stand in
front the station and the object test the person temperature and the infrared temperature
sensor reading the person temperature and if the reading is high the machine will message
the person to get a covid 19 test. The overall process will take under 20 seconds. I can see
where to create a technology like this to help monitor people during this pandemic disease
and to reduce the spreading of the virus would need great minds and skills, these machines
would need maintenance and technician work to maintain and keep operating. I chose the
article How Online Learning Kept Higher Ed Open During the Corona Virus Pandemic. I
found this article very interesting, since I am already doing online learning. So this really
didn't have much of an impact on me. But for many students and professors shifting to
online learning in a matter of weeks had a different impact on them. According to the article
something like this would take months or even years to make a change like this. Everything
just happened so fast, that all these universities had to transition all the classes to distance
learning. Even though we live an ever changing technology world, shifting did not come
easy to some. The professors went from lecturing in a classroom to live streaming on Zoom
or video conferencing through other types of apps. Which is kind of the same concept but
some students found this to be less interactive. This especially has been challenging for the
students who do not have computer, tablets or even internet to be able to make this
transition. Many students going to the campus physically was there only way of attending
class. At this point no one is really sure how long this will last. There is also fear for many
of going back due to the circumstances. This pandemic has made a lasting impact on
everyone. And from my personal experience, this not only happened to higher education but
to our kids schooling. My kids were on spring break and did not expect not to go back to
school. It took the schools about a week or 2 to get on board making the transition to
distance learning.
