Samsung wants to copy the human brain onto a memory chip

Published

on

Experts are exploring the possibility of loading a map of brain neurons into a computer memory chip.

Samsung Company in cooperation with specialists from Harvard University published a new study on the possibility of loading a map of neurons in the human brain into a computer memory chip.

In a promising paper published in Nature Electronics, the researchers suggested that a map of neural connections in the brain could be copied using a nanoelectrode circuit. According to them, the nanoelectrode circuit can be used to record electrical signals generated by a large number of neurons in the brain. These recordings can then inform a neural map, indicating where neurons connect to each other and how strong those connections are, the researchers said.

The copied neuron map can be transferred onto a 3D network of high density solid state drives, such as flash memory used in commercial solid state drives or resistive RAM.

Ultimately, the memory chip will have traits of the human brain, such as low power consumption, easy learning, adaptability to the environment, autonomy and cognitive ability, the authors of the study believe.

Experts have proposed one possible way to speed up the transfer of a neuron map – directly loading the map onto a memory chip.

In the future, Samsung plans to continue research in neuromorphic engineering through the development of semiconductors using artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.

Neuromorphic engineering is the use of very large-scale integration systems containing electronic analog circuits to mimic the neurobiological architecture present in the nervous system.

Is Elon Musks Satellite Internet Under Threat Enthusiast Hacked Starlink

At the Black Hat Security Technology Conference recently held in Las Vegas, Lennert Wouters, a cybersecurity specialist from KU Leuven (Belgium), shared his experience of successfully hacking Starlink user equipment. True, this was not a classic software hack, since the researcher had to make a so-called “modchip”.

The cost of manufacturing a chip connected to a Starlink subscriber terminal was $25. The chip caused a short-term short circuit, which disabled the built-in protection systems, after which the specialist gained access to the terminal. And already from it you can run any commands.

Our attack could render Starlink user terminals unusable and allow us to execute arbitrary code.”Wouters said.

This is what the Starlink terminal looks like

According to the researcher, the only reliable way to avoid such an attack is to create a new version of the main “dish” chip. Other ways to fix the problem. However, this hacking option provides direct access to subscriber equipment, and this is not the easiest option, but the Starlink system, apparently, is well protected from remote hacking. So its users hardly need to worry.

Hackers hacked Europes largest missile manufacturer

Unknown hackers, acting under the nickname Adrastea, hacked into the database of the largest European missile manufacturer – MBDA, formed as a result of the merger of the French Aérospatiale-Matra Missiles, the British Matra BAe Dynamics and the Italian Finmeccanica-Leonardo. This was reported by Security Affairs.

The attackers’ message about gaining access to the company’s network appeared on one of the forums. As evidence, a link to an archive with demo files was attached.

The total amount of stolen data was estimated by hackers at 60 GB. “The uploaded data contains confidential and confidential information about your company’s employees who took part in the development of closed military projects MBDA (PLANCTON, CRONOS, CA SIRIUS, EMADS, MCDS, B1NT, etc..) and about your company’s commercial activities in the interests of the EU Ministry of Defense (design documentation for air defense systems, missile systems and coastal defense systems, drawings, presentations, video and photo (3D) materials, contract agreements and correspondence with other companies Rampini Carlo, Netcomgroup, Rafael, Thales, ST Electronics, etc.”, the hackers wrote.

Adrastea is ready to discuss the cost of the stolen data array. MBDA has not yet commented on the incident.

MBDA manufactures a wide variety of missiles and related installations. For example, the company produces air-to-air missiles AIM-132 ASRAAM (short range, with IR guidance), MBDA Meteor (long range), MICA (medium range, with IR and radar guidance). The company’s product range also includes surface-to-air missiles – Mistral (MANPADS), MBDA Aster (medium and long range), Aspide Mk.1 (medium range), Sea Wolf (SAM), anti-ship (Exocet, Otomat, Marte, Sea Skua) and anti-tank (ERYX, Brimstone, HOT) missiles.

Samsung is ahead of the curve again The company released

Samsung was the first company in the market to release the August security patch for its smartphones. Moreover, for three flagship lines at once: Galaxy S20, S21 and S22.

Samsung is ahead of the curve again.  The company released the August security patch for three flagship lines at once

Today, owners of these smartphones in Germany began to receive updates, including a security patch. Usually, users from other countries do not have to wait long. The August security patch fixes dozens of vulnerabilities, so it’s quite important.

Samsung has sometimes been ahead of even Google in recent years, releasing security patches earlier and offering longer support for its flagships, although just three or four years ago, Samsung was almost the worst in this matter.
