The first ARM Cortex-A72 powered Chromebook, the first MediaTek Chromebook, powered by the Quad-core big.LITTLE MediaTek MT8173C Dual ARM Cortex-A72 and Dual ARM Cortex-A53 with PowerVR GX6250 GPU. This Acer Chromebook R13 is priced currently at $399, available now in the USA, soon should also be available in Europe. It looks great with a full sized HDMI, USB3 port, one USB Type-C port and a headset port. I am tempted to buy one, but I think I'll wait and see which Chromebooks will be released in the days/weeks to come, especially the rumored Rockchip RK3399 Powered Samsung Chromebook Pro.
Charlie Miller is a Senior Security Engineer at Uber Advanced Technologies Center, here is his keynote at ARM Techcon 2016. For better and worse, automotive security is headline news and garnering tremendous widespread attention from media, consumers, manufactures, and hackers alike. The security of today's vehicles involves many moving parts, but while manufactures take a majority of the blame, multiple parties contribute to the security debt in today's vehicle ecosystem. This keynote takes a deep dive into automotive security, current attacks and vulnerabilities, and also looks toward the future and onset of autonomous vehicles. Hear candid calls to action and highly distinctive insight into vehicle security from this famed hacker's perspective.
ARM mbed announces the ARM mbed Cloud, a new standards- and cloud-based SaaS solution for secure IoT device management. It simplifies connecting, securing, provisioning and updating of devices across complex networks with optimizations built-in for energy-efficiency. Its an 'any device, any cloud' service for OEMs to scale IoT quickly. Bee Hayes-Thakore talks at ARM TechCon 2016 about mbed Cloud, mbed OS5.2, new developer tools, mbed Partnership, mbed Enabled and the new mbed Connect Shenzhen summit coming up on December 5th 2016.
Doug Anson, ARM IoT Solutions Architect talks about how ARM has worked with IBM to integrate ARM mbed with IBM Watson IoT platform on Bluemix Cloud Platform. The demo uses ARM Cordio Bluetooth sending a Google Physical Web URL to the Chrome Browser in the smartphone, creating an ability for the Chrome browser to interact with Bluetooth, enabling payment for parking meters by Bluetooth from the parking meter. Hooking up with the backend through IBM Watson, integrating with IBM's payment service and blockchain service.
