Nvidia has released a paper showing that it could use a combination of artificial intelligence techniques to find better ways to place big groups of transistors. News 

Nvidia’s AI-based chip design can help with better placement of transistors, lower costs

Nvidia Corp, the world’s leading designer of computer chips used to create artificial intelligence, presented new research on Monday that explains how artificial intelligence can be used to improve chip design. In the chip design process, it is decided where to place tens of billions of small on-off switches called transistors on a piece of silicon to create working chips. The exact placement of these transistors has a big impact on the cost, speed and power consumption of the chip. Chip design engineers use complex design software from companies such…

Google finds 18 zero-day vulnerabilities in Samsung Exynos chips: what it means

Google’s security teams have discovered 18 zero-day vulnerabilities in several top Android smartphones and Samsung Exynos wearable chips that could compromise those devices. Google’s Project Zero director Tim Willis said in a blog post that the four most serious of these vulnerabilities “allow remote code execution from the Internet into baseband.” Tests by Project Zero confirmed that these four vulnerabilities allow an attacker to remotely compromise a phone’s baseband without user intervention and only require the attacker to know the victim’s phone number. With limited additional research and development, “we…
