Technical Tuesday – 17 November 2015 – Hackproof Signal Processing for Wireless Communications by Dr. Joseph Mitola III

Posted by on Nov 17, 2015 in Events Archive | No Comments

Conventional computing and communications expose myriad attack surfaces because of the Turing-equivalence of the instruction set architectures and the mathematical impossibility of forming a complete set of monitor functions to protect the contents of the registers from insightfully designed malware such as what NIST terms Advanced Persistent Threats. This talk describes how to throw out the general purpose computers via dataflow computing on FPGAs.  Data flow flexibility is established via embedded machine learning, while trustworthiness is established by patent applied for machine DNA built into the hardware. Since commercial products based on this approach use about 1/10th the power for a given networked computing task, hackproof technologies are both green and fundamentally secure. This presentation is a technical talk, not a sales pitch: Hackproof Technologies Inc is chartered in the public interest to accelerate the transformation of the Internet from hackable to hackproof; after this talk you will be able to tell the technical differences between the two and will be better prepared for the transformation from today’s software and virtual machines to emerging soft-wired hardware that is currently underway. Highlights of Dr. Mitola’s Oct 2015 technical keynotes at the Wireless Communications and Signal Processing conference in Nanjing China and at Huawei Wireless Research in Shanghai are included in the presentation.

Presented by: Dr. Joseph Mitola III

Dr. Joseph Mitola III is recognized globally as the “godfather” of software defined and cognitive radio having coined both terms, written the most widely cited peer reviewed technical papers, and written the first two graduate text books on software defined and cognitive radio architectures.  His career has included positions of technical leadership with the US DoD, ITT Corporation, E-Systems, Harris Corporation, Advanced Decision Systems, The MITRE Corporation, and Stevens Institute of Technology. Career highlights include serving as Special Assistant for Trustworthy Cognitive Systems reporting jointly to the Director of DARPA and to the Deputy Director of NSA (2001-2005). His education includes BS in EE (Northeastern University), MS in stochastic optimal control (The Johns Hopkins University) and Doctorate in Teleinformatics (KTH, The Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden). Dr. Mitola provides software defined and cognitive systems subject matter expertise to law firms, commercial entities and to the US DoD, currently serving on the Defense Science Board Task Force on MILSATCOM and Tactical Networking. As President and CEO of Hackproof Technologies Inc he is dedicated to the transformation of the Internet via consulting, commercial products, and open source hackproof cognitive radio.
