What do you know about Linux?


While Linux is running our phones, friend requests, tweets, financial trades, ATMs and more, most of us don’t know how it’s actually built. This short video takes you inside the process by which the largest collaborative development project in the history of computing is organized. Based on the annual report “Who Writes Linux,” this is a powerful and inspiring story of how Linux has become a community-driven phenomenon

Quantum Computing


IBM Q is an industry-first initiative to build commercially available universal quantum computing systems. As part of this effort, The IBM Quantum Experience enables anyone to connect to IBM’s quantum processor via the IBM Cloud, to run algorithms, experiments and to collaboratively explore what might be possible with quantum computing. Jerry Chow, manager of experimental quantum computing for IBM Research, describes the aim of this growing community working together to advance the frontiers of quantum


IBM Q systems will be designed to tackle problems in business and science that are too complex and exponential in nature for classical computing systems to handle. One of the first and most promising applications will be in the area of chemistry. Even for simple molecules like caffeine, the number of quantum states in the molecule can be astoundingly large — so large that all the conventional computing memory and processing power that could ever be built could not model it — and could lead to the discovery of new materials and medicines

Hacking your Office


You think about securing your laptop, but what about your desk phone, monitor, or printer? In this Motherboard episode, white hat hacker Ang Cui demonstrates hacks on “embedded devices”—objects that contain computing systems but that you wouldn’t necessarily think of as computers. At his office in New York, Cui shows us how he can turn an office phone or printer into a bugging device using a piece of malware he calls “funtenna.” This exploit makes the equipment transmit data over radio frequencies so it can be picked up by an antenna—without the hacker ever having to go near the device. It’s a pretty high-level hack, but as Cui says, if he’s thought of it, you can imagine someone else has
