The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years – we’re here to make sure you’re prepared.
After that, we do our Catch of the Week:
- Dan likes the story about how the Amazon Alexa device recorded a couple’s private conversation and then emailed it to one of their employees. These things are always listening; are they always recording as well?
- Henry is pleased that a BIOS update has restored acceptable battery life to his Dell laptop.
- Rich notes that Intel showed off their Xeon Processors with integrated FPGAs this week at Intel AI DevCon. You can watch the keynote talk from Naveen Rao right here on insideHPC.
- Shahin points us to a presentation from CUG that shows, for the first time, application performance of the Cray Isambard supercomputer powered by ARM processors. How does it compare to Intel Xeon? You can now download a paper with detailed results.

In this NSFW video, comedian Jordan Peele demonstrates how deepfake technology can put words into anyone’s mouth, including our former President.
