If a tree falls in the forest, but you can’t reproduce it, how do you know if it made a sound or not?
During Red Hat Research Days, researchers, Red Hatters, technologists, and students come together to discuss exciting new research developments.
We know you’re being deluged with event invites and it’s hard to decide where you should spend your time. Devconf.US has a unique experience to offer. Here’s why you should register for Devconf.US—for free!
Passwords made are to be memorable, so they are not usually secure enough for encryption software. That’s where derivation functions come in, transforming a password into a more suitable cryptographic key.
Historically, usability studies have looked mostly at end users, doing focus groups or user testing with customers or the general public. This process often neglected developers, system administrators, and other IT professionals and the systems they use day to day.
Virtualization is an amazing technology that has become a popular solution for sharing resources among members of an organization. However, some organizations need to harness the capabilities of an entire machine, without a layer of virtualization between the code and the hardware. Is it possible to share hardware between projects with the same ease as sharing virtual resources?
We spoke about the importance of data sharing and privacy preservation, in both scientific and computer technology domains, with James Honaker and Mercè Crosas, two of Harvard’s leaders in these fields.
Why is open hardware important? How is the new RISC-V architecture bringing open hardware research to the forefront? How will this impact you? Read on to find out.
Open source has become a dominant paradigm for developing software. One major factor for its success is its transparency: if you have a problem with the software, you can peek into the details of the code, search the issue tracker, ask for help, and maybe even provide a fix. This means that even though most users don’t write code, the mere fact that everything is open will help the majority of users. Now it’s time to apply the open source model to the cloud.
Faculty, PhD students, and Red Hat associates in the northeast United States are collaborating actively on research projects in many areas, despite the impact of COVID-19. The pursuit, testing, and examination of important research questions continues from spare bedrooms, kitchen tables, and even masked, socially distanced walks outside, with the support of many open source collaboration tools.
Honeywell and Red Hat have been collaborating with both the Faculty of Informatics from Masaryk University and the Faculty of Information Technology from Brno University of Technology on verification research for many years. These universities made Honeywell and Red Hat aware that they share the same business need: an automated detector of software defects.
