09 Mar 2017 IBM Technology Moves Even Closer To Human Speech Recognition Parity [61309]
NetworkWorld, March 9th, 2017

"IBM: Reaching human parity - meaning an error rate on par with that of two humans speaking - has been ultimate industry goal...

IBM this week said its speech recognition system set an industry record of 5.5% word error rate, a percentage that lets a computer understand human conversation almost as well as the average person does.

According to IBM human parity was considered a 5.9% word error rate but IBM who partnered with Appen, a speech and technology service provider, reassessed the industry benchmark and determined that human parity is lower than what anyone has yet achieved: 5.1%..."

01 Feb 2017 CSOs Reveal True Cost Of Breaches [60200]
Help Net Security, February 1st, 2017

"Over one-third of organizations that experienced a breach in 2016 reported substantial customer, opportunity and revenue loss of more than 20 percent, according to the Cisco 2017 Annual Cybersecurity Report (ACR)...

Ninety percent of these organizations are improving threat defense technologies and processes after attacks by separating IT and security functions (38 percent), increasing security awareness training for employees (38 percent), and implementing risk mitigation techniques (37 percent). The report surveyed nearly 3,000 chief security officers (CSOs) and security operations leaders from 13 countries in the Security Capabilities Benchmark Study, part of the Cisco ACR..."

06 Jan 2017 Millions of Queries per Second: PostgreSQL and MySQL's Peaceful Battle at Today's Demanding Workloads [59469]
Percona, January 6th, 2017

Anastasia Raspopina and Sveta Smirnova blogs, "This blog compares how PostgreSQL and MySQL handle millions of queries per second.

Anastasia: Can open source databases cope with millions of queries per second? Many open source advocates would answer 'yes.' However, assertions aren't enough for well-grounded proof. That's why in this blog post, we share the benchmark testing results from Alexander Korotkov (CEO of Development, Postgres Professional) and Sveta Smirnova (Principal Technical Services Engineer, Percona). The comparative research of PostgreSQL 9.6 and MySQL 5.7 performance will be especially valuable for environments with multiple databases.

The idea behind this research is to provide an honest comparison for the two popular RDBMSs. Sveta and Aleksander wanted to test the most recent versions of both MySQL and PostgreSQL with the same tool, under the same challenging workloads and using the same configuration parameters (where possible). However, because both PostgreSQL and MySQL ecosystems evolved independently, with standard testing tools (pgbench and SysBench) used for each database, it wasn't an easy journey..."

01 Dec 2016 Fujitsu Announces Start of Operations for Japan's Fastest Supercomputer [58611]
Supercomputer is operated by JCAHPC, which is a jointly run by the University of Tokyo and the University of Tsukuba

Fujitsu announced the completion of the Oakforest-PACS supercomputer at the Joint Center for Advanced High Performance Computing (JCAHPC), which is jointly run by the University of Tokyo and the University of Tsukuba, and that operations have commenced.

This new supercomputer is comprised of FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY CX600 M1 x86 servers. It uses Intel Xeon Phi processors in its 8,208 computation nodes, achieving a total theoretical computational performance of 25 petaflops.

Using performance tuning technologies from Fujitsu and Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. aimed at large-scale, high performance computing to draw out the maximum system performance, the system achieved 13.55 petaflops on the LINPACK benchmark used to show supercomputer performance on the TOP500 rankings, placing it first in Japan and sixth in the world..
