Headline November 06, 2016/ ''' *SILICON* - SAMURAI '''


INTELLECTUALLY, I AM ALL SET,  to visit the United States and seek great honours, and  call- 
*On this great American President, Barrack H. Obama before he leaves office*.

*President Barrack H Obama loves technology and he loves students*. 

So what could be a greater accomplishment than to be in a position to invite and  request  the American President to-
*Head the International Committee of the World Students Society*.

With my briefing papers and presentations all ready, including the honing of my mastery at repartee, I am looking forward to the final touches from these very brave and great  students: 

Merium, Rabo, Haleema, Dee, Paras, Sorat, Sanyia, Tooba, Shahbano, Malala [Nobel prize], Aqsa-, Eman/LUMS- Areesha, Sameen Fatimah.

Armeen & Amina/LUMS,  Saima,  Dusiyarn Tini/Malaysia,  Haanyia/Ireland, Amayna, Maria. Merium/Singapore.

Hussain, Shahzaib, Salar, Jordan, Bilal Malik,  Ali/UAE, AbuBakr/Sweden, Noman, Mustafa/LUMS,  Ibrahim, Ehsen, Hamza/UK, Reza/Canada, Ghazi, Danyial & Rahym,/UK, Haider, Fahad Khan Tarakai 

Faizan Masood, Majeed/Omer Malaysia, Hassaan Masood, Zaeem, Hazeem, Zain Tariq Hameed, Vishnu/India, Toby/China and all the Students of the world.

So, with  this state of mind,  I plan to  email Mr. Fleur Cowan, Embassy Spokesperson of the United States Embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan, to set up an appointment, to enable me, to get a move on.

And now to the research headline: 

Moore's Law, the axiom that chips will be ever more powerful and cheaper, has for years shown signs of reaching the limits.

So, researchers have set about to learn how to get more out of chips that can't shrink much further.

The Argonne researchers are exploring ideas put forward by Dr. Palem, who in 2003 first proposed an idea he described as  'inexact computing'.

He suggested trading off precision to make dramatic gains in computing efficiency. 

Originally, he explored the idea of inexactness as a way of to make use of imperfect chips where portions of the transistors were not working because of manufacturing flaws.

More recently, he has turned to using his ideas to gain significant energy savings from today's common processors.

Dr. Palem said that the group was planning to extend the Argonne research to more efficiently run mathematical models that relate to climate change.

With colleagues from Rice University  and  Seoul National University, he demonstrated how inexactness could be applied to the challenges of pinpointing an indoor location, since  GPS  usually does not work inside buildings.

The Rice researchers employed a technique called known as : *Hash Function* which involves a representing a large chunk of data, like a digital photo, with a much smaller numerical value. They rely on that image to nail down the location.

While the  Allen Institute researchers identified using objects using extremely efficient versions of programs known as  neural networks, the Rice scientists matched the surrounding scene captured by a smartphone camera from a library of imagery stored on the phone itself.

The approach compresses all the bits that make up those photos and does location calculations on a simple handheld computer  -something that would normally require  pinging  a data network over the Internet.          

Like the Allen researchers, the  Rice University scientists think that the energy efficiency of their algorithm can preserve privacy and nothing is sent over the Internet.

What's more, they said in a recent paper, they were able to do it. '' 500 times cheaper,  both in energy and  computation cost''  over existing methods.

The lesson is that as  engineering program slows, advances will increasingly come from human creativity, computer scientists said.

In a  Stanford University lecture last month.  Alan Huang, an electrical engineer, showed how   -by reconfiguring Internet links in the shape of a doughnut rather than the two-dimensional mesh that is used now-

It would  be possible to cut the Internet delays in half, drastically speeding the delivery of  digital video, while cutting the amount of computer equipment needed to deliver that data.

''You don't need a quantum computer to do this,'' he said, referring to a concept for a  Supercomputer.

''You just need high school math.''   

With respectful and humble dedication to these great mentors and guides that brought the World Students Society to this unique honours:

Mr. Sultan Abbasi, Dr / Technologist. Masood Reza, Dr. M Jawaid Khan/California, Technologist Amin Malik/Chicago, Engineer Imran Basit, Engineer Shahid Shakoor, Dr/Engineer. Imran Bokhari, Dr. Zulqernain Haider/Canada,  Engineer Hashir Jan, Engineer Zafar Sami, Mr. Saqib Kiyani, and Qazi Ahmed Akber Khan

Naveed Iqbal Querishi/ Siemens Saudi Arabia, Dr Iftikhar A Khan, M Fahim Khan/Ericsson, Asst Professor M Hamad Khan/UK,, Chartered Accountant and Regional Director Capital Markets Imran Khan, Mr. Haider Naqvi, Mr. Nusrat H Mangi, and Rumi Shumail.
