Getting The Most Out Of Sandboxing

Wednesday May 19 / 11:10AM EDT

Privilege separation and reduction ("sandboxing") has significantly improved software security, and in many applications is a baseline requirement for safe design. (In fact, there are still many applications that can and should adopt sandboxing.)Although necessary, sandboxing is not...

Differentiable Programming in Kotlin

Wednesday May 19 / 09:10AM EDT

Over the last few years, several frameworks have been developed to support differentiability. The most popular are PyTorch, TensorFlow and JAX which are all built on Python. These frameworks are oriented towards machine learning which involve building a model, performing batched computations on...

Co-Designing Raft + Thread-per-Core Execution Model for the Kafka-API

Wednesday May 19 / 10:10AM EDT

Sometimes you get to reinvent the wheel when the road changes. Redpanda is a drop-in replacement for Apache Kafka®, designed from the ground up for modern hardware. Hardware looks nothing like it did 10 years ago. NVMe disks are 1000X faster than spinning disks. Cloud computers offer 30X more...
