How Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Communications and Information Technology Creates A New Generation Of Tech Champions

Throughout the COVID-19 pan- demic, the government of Saudi Arabia, like any other government around the world, has had to move quickly and substantively with its stimulus packages for businesses to get through this crisis. However, in addition to that, the government of Saudi Arabia has not allowed the crisis to pause or slow down its ongoing and ambitious plans for boosting the Kingdom’s economy. According to Dr. Ahmed H. Altheneyan, Deputy Minister for Digital Capacities for the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) of Saudi Arabia, the Kingdom’s ambitious social transformation projects are aimed at driving diversification across its economy, “with the government today acting as more of an enabler and facilitator through its policies and regulations, as well as funding.”

Dr Ali appointed MD of information technology board – Newspaper

PESHAWAR: The government approved appointment of Dr Sahibzada Ali Mahmood as managing director of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Information Technology Board (KPITB) here on Tuesday.

According to an official statement, the decision was made at the 11th Board of Directors meeting of KPITB chaired by Chief Minister Mahmood Khan.

The chief minister said that promotion of information technology and digitisation of services of provincial departments was fundamental part of government’s good governance strategy.

He said that KPITB would be made a strong institution. He said that government made various services of different departments online that would be extended to others for facilitation of people.

The meeting was briefed about the recommendations of search and scrutiny committee with regard to appointment of new managing director of KPITB. The chief minister stressed the need for strengthening KPITB as an institution and directed the quarters concerned to reconstitute human resource committee for the purpose.

New technology lets quantum bits hold information for 10,000 times longer than previous record — ScienceDaily

Quantum bits, or qubits, can hold quantum information much longer now thanks to efforts by an international research team. The researchers have increased the retention time, or coherence time, to 10 milliseconds — 10,000 times longer than the previous record — by combining the orbital motion and spinning inside an atom. Such a boost in information retention has major implications for information technology developments since the longer coherence time makes spin-orbit qubits the ideal candidate for building large quantum computers.

They published their results on July 20 in Nature Materials.

“We defined a spin-orbit qubit using a charged particle, which appears as a hole, trapped by an impurity atom in silicon crystal,” said lead author Dr. Takashi Kobayashi, research scientist at the University of New South Wales Sydney and assistant professor at Tohoku University. “Orbital motion and spinning of the hole are strongly coupled and locked together. This is

Toshiba Information Systems (Japan) Integrates Verimatrix’s Whitebox Cryptographic Key Technology Into Customer’s Main Control Function to Safeguard Consumer Printers

AIX-EN-PROVENCE, France & SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Regulatory News:

Verimatrix, (Paris:VMX) (Euronext Paris: VMX), the leader in powering the modern connected world with people-centered security, today announced that its value-added reseller, Japan-based Toshiba Information Systems (Japan) Corporation, has implemented Verimatrix Whitebox cryptographic key protection technology inside consumer printers produced by one of the country’s premier manufacturers. Whitebox is part of the Verimatrix Application Shielding family of solutions.

“Exposed cryptographic keys are a significant vulnerability in IoT code for connected devices,” said Asaf Ashkenazi, Chief Operating Officer at Verimatrix. “Our Whitebox tool allows Toshiba Information Systems (Japan) to dissolve keys into the code itself and obscures algorithms to keep its customer’s critical intellectual property, applications, devices and data safe. The deployment of our Whitebox technology into the devices of a leading electronics manufacturer illustrates our ability to easily empower partners to deploy advanced security architectures. That’s a capability unmatched in our

Yet Another Article about Information Technology and the Character of War

The Maginot Line was arguably the most sophisticated system of fortifications in history. Kilometers thick at points, it had observation posts, anti-tank ditches, fortresses with retractable turrets, flood zones, and thousands of bunkers. Contrary to the way it is often described in history books, it wasn’t irrelevant. It blocked an invasion route through northern France, including and especially Alsace-Lorraine, which France had fought for at great cost. It simply wasn’t as relevant, or relevant in the way its designers intended, after the character of war changed.

War has an unchanging nature. War is violent, interactive, and fundamentally political. War’s character, by contrast, changes, and reflects how technology, law, ethics, and many other factors influence combatants’ use of violence to create political outcomes. The character of war is a semi-regular topic of discussion among military theorists, and one that has an unfortunate tendency to descend into esoteric arguments that are fascinating

Spin Hall effect in Weyl semimetal for energy-efficient information technology

The discovery of topological Weyl semimetals in 2017 has revealed opportunities to realize several extraordinary physical phenomena in condensed matter physics. Now, researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have demonstrated the direct electrical detection of a large spin Hall effect in this topological quantum material. Weyl semimetal takes advantage of its strong spin-orbit coupling and novel topological spin-polarized electronic states in its band structure. These experimental findings can pave the way for the utilization of spin-orbit induced phenomena in developing next-generation of faster and energy-efficient information technology and have been published in the scientific journal Physical Review Research.
