Massive Computer Chip Could Process Simulations “Faster Than Real-Time”

As smartphones and computers have got smaller, the pressure is on technology companies to keep up and produce computer chips that are faster than before, but the same size or smaller than their predecessors. However, one company still believes that bigger is better.

Cerebras systems have designed a goliath computer chip that may be capable of sailing past the competition in specific tasks, claims a collaboration between Cerebras and the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) in a preprint paper (not yet peer-reviewed) published on arXIV and presented to the SC20 conference this week. Designed to “revolutionize deep learning,” the CS-1 measures 8.5 inches (21.6 centimeters) across, packs in 1.2 trillion transistors, and, according to the company, is 200 times faster than rival supercomputer Joule 2.0 (the 82nd fastest supercomputer in the world) in a combustion simulation.

In fact, this chip could be so fast that it could simulate an event

Apple responds to privacy concerns over Mac software security process

Last week, a number of Mac users had trouble opening apps — a problem that seemed to be caused by an Apple security protocol responsible for checking that software comes from trusted sources. The slow-down prompted some to criticize Apple for collecting too much information about users’ activities; criticism which the company has now responded to with promises that it will change how these security protocols work in future.

Apple announced the changes via its support pages, adding a new “Privacy protections” section to a page entitled “Safely open apps on your Mac” (as spotted by iPhone in Canada). Apple says a service known as Gatekeeper “performs online checks to verify if an app contains known malware and whether the developer’s signing certificate is revoked.” It goes on to clarify how Apple currently uses the data, and outlines new safeguards that are being introduced over the next year.

Derek Jeter-backed startup Bespoken raises $2.6M to ‘deconstruct’ whiskey, shave years off aging process

They say all good things take time — but what if that means turning years into days?

That’s at least part of the value proposition behind distillery tech startup Bespoken Spirits. The Menlo Park, California-based company says it has mastered the technology to more accurately fine tune whiskey flavor profiles, and compress the liquor’s lengthy aging process into a matter of days.

Bespoken recently raised a $2.6 million seed round of funding from a group of investors, including former New York Yankees star Derek Jeter. And while it may not be the first company to try to shave years off the distillation process, its co-founders say it could be the first to leverage that technology to help third parties chase a specific demographic’s taste profile.

“I think a simple way to think about what we have done is we deconstructed the barrel,” Bespoken Spirits co-founder Stu Aaron explained in a
