For these surveys of common topics. Sometimes I miss one and having a collection like this allows me to double check. Wish we had more of these. Maybe a monthly 'best of' would be useful in all the topic areas...
Would like to hear if folks are at all worried about the newly discovered "Row Hammer" failures. Here are two links. http://www.futureplus.com/images/FS2800/The%20Known%20Failure%20Mechanism%20in%20DDR3%20memory%20called%20Row%20Hammer.pdf
and an excellent study by CMU https://www.ece.cmu.edu/~safari/pubs/kim-isca14.pdf
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
