Energy Department Announces $10 Million for Marine Energy Research and Testing Program

The Water Power Technologies Office has issued a Funding Opportunity Announcement to select a network director for a new program to support testing and research for marine energy technologies—the U.S. Testing Expertise and Access for Marine Energy Research (TEAMER) Program. TEAMER will bring together capabilities from universities and the national laboratory system to provide marine energy developers ready-access to unique, world-class testing facilities and expertise. Through its network of facilities and testing protocols, the program will simplify access and reduce costs of testing for MHK technology developers – ensuring access to the appropriate facilities at the appropriate time. Reducing costs, accelerating technology development, and decreasing testing and development timelines of marine energy technologies can help realize the nation’s potential for future growth in marine energy resource extraction. The Water Power Technologies Office is committed to investing in early-stage R&D that enables the domestic marine energy industry to advance toward becoming more cost competitive while also helping to promote economic prosperity and energy security.

Windows 10 Version 1809, Remote Desktop Bug Workaround

If you are running Windows 10 version 1809 Remote Desktop Connection from another Windows 10 version 1809, odds are the experience is slow, stalls, or just fails. This is a known Remote Desktop bug. Rumor has it Microsoft will have a fix out this April.

A workaround is to add an entry in the windows registry.
Add a new registry entry in:

“HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client”
UseURCP
REG_DWORD 0

Windows 10 Version 1809 RDP Temp Fix

Windows 10 has had a lot of issues over the years. Reminds me of the Windows 95 days, on all the registry tweaks. I will post a response here when a real fix is released. This workaround worked great for us on Windows 10 to Windows 10 Remote desktop connections via VPN. Windows 10 to Windows 7 Remote Desktop Connections via VPN did not have any issues, and thus did not need this workaround.

Hopefully this will help others from pulling their hair out. Keep it real out there, and have a great day.

Samsung 970 PRO SSD NVMe

Samsung’s 970 PRO has always been the fastest of the NVMe SSDs. I have been very impressed with its performance and reliability. It appears the SATA days with regard to workstations have finally come to an end. I installed the 1 TB 970 PRO in an Aorus Ultra Z390 Board with 64 GIG of ram and the new Intel Core i9-9900k .

The Samsung SSD 970 PRO is the 3rd generation of Samsung’s Client-PC NVMe SSD. The Samsung 970 PRO is specially designed for tech enthusiasts, hardcore gamers and professionals whose workloads are intensive on PCs and workstations. Featuring the latest Samsung 2bit MLC V-NAND technology and a newly enhanced Phoenix controller, the 970 PRO delivers fearless performance and unprecedented reliability in a small M.2 2280 form factor and offer customers the most advanced Samsung SSD technology currently available for Client PCs.

Samsung 970 Pro

Delivering unprecedented performance, the 970 PRO maximizes the potential of NVMe bandwidth. With much greater performance than the previous generation, the new 970 PRO offers unparalleled sequential read/write speeds of up to 3,500/2,700 MB/s respectively and random performance of up to 500,000 IOPS for both of read/write operations. The 970 PRO is the best solution for processing massive amounts of data, 4K graphic work, 4K/DirectX 12 games and data analytics.

Finally we have some serious hardware that is leaping forward. The advanced Data Encryption is a major plus.

The 970 PRO provides multiple advanced data encryption features. Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) security technology will help keep data safe at all times. The 970 PRO includes an AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption engine to ensure that your personal files remain secure. Being hardware-based, the encryption engine secures your data without the performance degradation that you may experience with software-based encryption. Also, the 970 PRO is compliant with various advanced security management solutions (TCG Opal and Encrypted Drive-IEEE1667).

Intel’s 9th Gen Core processors

Following the launch late last year, Intel’s 9th Gen Core processors are amazing. It appeared to me the CPU market has been boring since 2012. No real performance boosts like we saw year to year in the late 1990s. Suddenly, the 9th generation has been a jump, especially the Core i9.

For the Laptops, Intel announced that its 9th Gen Core mobile processors will launch in Q2 2019.

Intel's 9th Gen Core processors

Intel was quiet on details other than the impending release timeframe, but the full complement of 9th Gen Core processors we have come to expect will be available. That includes 9th Gen Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 chips.

Adept Enterprise is designed for the new Intel’s 9th Gen Core processors, and the 9th Gen Core mobile processors will increase speed of complex queries in the field. Probably an over kill today, but will be a good investment for long term use, especially with upgrades.

Adept Enterprise and Deep A.I. Artificial Intelligence

To understand how deep A.I. Artificial Intelligence functions are developed, we first need to understand the technology that makes this possible. The term deep comes from deep learning, a branch of Machine Learning that focuses on deep neural networks.

Neural networks are computational systems that are inspired by the ways a human brain processes certain information. Special cells called neurons are connected to each other in a complex network allowing information to be processed and communicated.

In Computer Science, artificial neural networks are made out of thousands of nodes, connected in a specific manner. Nodes are arranged in layers; the way in which they are connected determines the type of the network and, ultimately, its ability to perform a certain computational task over another one. A traditional neural network might look like this:

Adept Enterprise Deep Artificial Intelligence

Each node from the input layer contains a numerical value that encodes the input we want to feed the network. If we are trying to predict the Dow Jones Industrial Average for tomorrow, the input nodes might contain the future and past price changes, stock splits, divisors, contracts, fear and greed index encoded as numbers in the range.

These values are broadcasted to the next layer; each result-curve dampens or amplifies the values it transmits. Each node sums all the values it receives, and outputs a new value based on its own function. The result of the computation can be retrieved from the output layer; in this case, only one value is produced, the probability of the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

When using Adept Enterprise we use multiple input nodes that are triggered by events, either by humans or by machine code. The Adept Enterprise software outputs the desired result based on the sum of all result-curves via the input layer values it receives. The output layer result is the most desired result. This allows for the software to give and assign unlimited desired results, without a human manually doing it. This allows one human with the software to accomplish the same work load as hundreds of humans without the software, and in some cases based on the job thousands of humans.

Training a neural network means finding a set of weights for all result-curves, so that the output layer produces the desired result. One of the most used technique to achieve this is called back-propagation, and it works by re-adjusting the weights every time the network makes a mistake. The mistake is determined by not accomplishing the desired result, or the desired result is not desired anymore.

The basic idea behind training a neural network is that each layer will represent progressively core complex features. In the case of a workflow task, for instance, the first layer might detect violations, the second layer detects date and time restrictions, which the third layer is able to use to approve or deny an application or task.

In experience, what each layer responds to is far from being that simple. This is based on humans and software creating a library of input layers, and the software producing the desired results for the output layers.

The desired result is a perfect result, eliminating imperfection. This saves money, time and frustration.
