Smith also talks about BYU Law’s initiatives to expand its influence on a global sphere.

I’ve written about the power and value of GPUs in the past, and I have written posts to launch many generations of GPU-equipped EC2 instances including the CG1, G2, G3, P2, P3, and P3dn instance types.
Today I would like to give you a sneak peek at our newest GPU-equipped instance, the G4. Designed for machine learning training & inferencing, video transcoding, and other demanding applications, G4 instances will be available in multiple sizes and also in bare metal form. We are still fine-tuning the specs, but you can look forward to:
AWS-custom Intel CPUs (4 to 96 vCPUs)
1 to 8 NVIDIA T4 Tensor Core GPUs
Up to 384 GiB of memory
Up to 1.8 TB of fast, local NVMe storage
Up to 100 Gbps networking
The brand-new NVIDIA T4 GPUs feature 320 Turing Tensor cores, 2,560 CUDA cores, and 16 GB of memory. In
The world’s largest scientific publisher, Elsevier, left a server open to the public internet, exposing user email addresses and passwords. “The impacted users include people from universities and educational institutions from across the world,” reports Motherboard. “It’s not entirely clear how long the server was exposed or how many accounts were impacted, but it provided a rolling list of passwords as well as password reset links when a user requested to change their login credentials.” From the report: “Most users are .edu [educational institute] accounts, either students or teachers,” Mossab Hussein, chief security officer at cybersecurity company SpiderSilk who found the issue, told Motherboard in an online chat. “They could be using the same password for their emails, iCloud, etc.” Motherboard verified the data exposure by asking Hussein to reset his own password to a specific phrase provided by Motherboard before hand.
