[Links of the Day] 09/08/2018 : Consciousness and integrated information, Optical FPGA, Events DB

  • Making Sense of Consciousness as Integrated Information : in this papers, the authors argue that we currently have a dissociation between cognition and experience and that it might impact in the future in an hyper-connected world.
  • Towards an optical FPGA : it look like programmable silicon photonic circuits is the next frontier in the hardware accelerator. Converting light into an electrical signal has rapidly become too expensive and modern CPU have a hard time coping with the pace of evolution of networking capabilities. 
  • TraildDB : tool for storing and querying series of events. Fast small efficient.

[Links of the Day] 07/08/2018 : programming languages papers, terraform interactive visualization, self contained executable python file

  • Papers on programming languages: papers about programming ideas from 70's for today
  • blast-radius : Extremely useful tools allowing you to generate interactive visualizations of Terraform dependency graphs
  • XAR : self-contained executable for python applications. It is a single, highly compressed files containing all necessary executable dependencies. It pretty much allows you to deliver the equivalent of a single golang binary but with python [Github]
