AI is enabling new applications that were previously considered science fiction—and impacting nearly every industry. Autonomous machines take advantage of AI to solve some of the world’s toughest problems. The NVIDIA Jetson platform gives you the tools to develop and deploy AI-powered robots, drones, IVA applications, and other autonomous machines that think for themselves.

Russian Botnet Is Taken Down

Microsoft not the Feds

WASHINGTON — Microsoft organized 35 nations on Tuesday to take down one of the world’s largest botnets — malware that secretly seizes control of millions of computers around the globe. It was an unusual disruption of an internet criminal group, because it was carried out by a company, not a government.

The action, eight years in the making, was aimed at a criminal group called Necurs, believed to be based in Russia. Microsoft employees had long tracked the group as it infected nine million computers around the world, hijacking them to send spam emails intended to defraud unsuspecting victims. The group also mounted stock market scams and spread ransomware, which locks up a computer until the owner pays a fee.

Rapidly, they (Microsoft) took over or froze six million domain names that Necurs was using or had inventoried for future attacks.” A domain name can be a website — www.nytimes.com is a legitimate one, for example — but Necurs had created an algorithm to spawn millions of new domains, often with deceptive names, for future use against unsuspecting victims. Microsoft engineers had cracked the code.

Summit Fastest Supercomputer

Accelerated computing is the way forward for the world’s most powerful computers. More than 600 applications support CUDA today, including the top 15 in HPC.

NVIDIA powers U.S.-based Summit, the world’s fastest supercomputer, as well as the fastest systems in Europe and Japan. More than 130 supercomputers on the TOP500 list are accelerated by NVIDIA, including five of the top 10.
