AMD Lists Threadripper 3000 CPU with 32 Cores, Possible New Socket

  • AMD posts preliminary new information on its forthcoming Ryzen Threadripper 3000-series processors.
  • As per normal, entries to this list may or may not make it to market, but it seemingly provides some very intriguing information about AMD's Ryzen Threadripper 3000-series (codename Castle Peak) processors.
  • Starting with the most obvious new information, AMD lists an unidentified Ryzen Threadripper with 32 cores and a 280W TDP (thermal design power).
  • As you recall, first-and second-gen Ryzen Threadripper processors drop into socket TR4, also called socket SP3r2.
  • The potential socket change could be attributed to the rumored support for eight-channel memory, so you might need to drop some cash on a new motherboard to expose the full features of some Threadripper 3000 models.
  • We won't have to wait long to find out as the Ryzen Threadripper 3000-series chips are scheduled to come out next month.

The pioneers of cultural anthropology who created “cultural relativism”

  • Now often called the father of American anthropology, Boas—Prussian-born, Jewish, and male—in fact exerted tremendous influence far beyond the academic discipline he helped to establish, presiding over a revolution in the social sciences and becoming one of the best-known public intellectuals of the first half of the twentieth century.
  • In hundreds of academic essays, as well as in his public writing and activism, Boas developed a view of human cultures that was at once empirically grounded and historically sensitive, emphasizing the socially contingent in place of the biologically determined.
  • The story he tells is not only about an important moment in the history of the social sciences, but also about a group of women whose travels across the American empire liberated them, in some measure, from the constraining norms of their time.

Any Fingerprint Unlocks Galaxy S10, Samsung Warns

  • The issue was spotted by a British woman whose husband was able to unlock her phone with his fingerprint just by adding a cheap screen protector.
  • Samsung said it was "aware of the case of S10's malfunctioning fingerprint recognition and will soon issue a software patch".
  • South Korea's online-only KaKao Bank told customers to switch off the fingerprint-recognition option to log in to its services until the issue was fixed.
  • Previous reports suggested some screen protectors were incompatible with Samsung's reader because they left a small air gap that interfered with the scanning.
  • After buying a £2.70 gel screen protector on eBay, Lisa Neilson found her left thumb print, which was not registered, could unlock the phone.
  • And when the screen protector was added to another relative's phone, the same thing happened.

Rejected from YC (Again)

  • Two months later we got an email saying that a partner would like to speak to us.
  • The call went well, Michael seemed to like what we're doing, as he himself had a long history working with video startups: Justin TV, which later became Twitch (sold to Amazon) as well as Socialcam (sold to Autodesk).
  • A few days after the initial call we got the email from YC inviting us to Silicon Valley to meet the partners for the final stage of the YC interviews.
  • We walked away feeling like we gave it our all and on the plus side, we had our first MRR and also the opportunity to run office hours with YC before the next batch.
  • Obviously, this feels like a blow as just 4 months ago we have been to interviews and took their feedback onboard.

Why SD-WAN Is Taking Over Enterprise Networks

  • The promise of SD-WAN is “more agile, dynamic, and cheaper branch-office connectivity without losing quality of service,” Ovum distinguished analyst Roy Illsley explained to Data Center Knowledge.
  • (“We can be deployed on white box, grey box, bare metal, you name it.”) It’s also available through managed service providers who can set policies and offer SLAs. Versa’s software can replace multiple pieces of network infrastructure, such as wireless access points, firewalls, routers, and so on.
  • Policy and SLAs promise redundancy and resiliency, even for challenging network workloads like voice and video for geographically dispersed locations: “We can replicate packets, we can do forwarding, we can establish fast-failover high-availability at every single branch, so the likelihood of a brownout of your voice is significantly minimised.
  • “In a traditional WAN based on MPLS links a branch office's entire data traffic, including their internet access, is routed through head office in a hub-and-spoke connectivity model.

How blogging helped me get my first data science job

  • I wanted to become a data scientist since I learned that such a job exists.
  • After four months, I limited the topics of my articles to data analytics and machine learning.
  • I was training machine learning models, doing data analysis, and spending most of the day reading research papers.
  • It was difficult to admit, but I learned that being a data scientist is not the perfect career path.
  • I can train machine learning models, build ETL pipelines, write complex software, care about code quality, and plan the architecture of my software.
  • If I started blogging regularly earlier, I wouldn’t need to write three times a week.
  • I think that six months is the minimal amount of time you need to build a successful blog that boosts your career.
  • I have created a free blogging course for aspiring data scientists.

Get Started with Go

  • I started to learn Go a few weeks ago as a hobby.
  • In this article series, I will document everything I learn.
  • The most important feature of Go is its concurrency.
  • It allows multiple processes to run simultaneously and effectively thanks to its garbage collector, goroutines (a lightweight thread managed by Go for efficient concurrency) and channels.
  • A typical workspace contains many source repositories containing many packages and commands.
  • Most Go programmers keep all their Go source code and dependencies in a single workspace.
  • The tree above shows a workspace containing two repositories (example and image).
  • The example repository contains two commands (hello and outyet) and one library (stringutil).
  • The image repository contains the bmp package and several others.
  • I have set my Go workspace as shown below.
  • That’s it for now guys.
  • Will meet you guys again with another interesting topic.

A man was sentenced to 15 years for cocaine possession in Oklahoma. It was powdered milk

  • Cody Gregg was sentenced to 15 years in prison last week after he pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, according to court records.
  • His guilty plea was the result of an August arrest and charge of trafficking illegal drugs.
  • After a lab report showed a negative test for drugs, he withdrew his plea, court records show.
  • Gregg, 26, told the judge that the powered milk was from a food pantry, according to the paper.
  • It said he was riding his bike on August 12 when an officer tried to stop him because he had no rear lights.
  • He pedaled faster then jumped off his bike and fled, and officers found the white powder in his backpack, the paper said, citing an affidavit.
  • He was released Friday after being in jail since his arrest in August, the paper said.
