Edge AI in a 5G world

Deploying AI/ML solutions in latency-sensitive use cases requires a new solution architecture approach for many businesses.

Fast computational units (i.e. GPUs) and low-latency connections (i.e. 5G) allow for AI/ML models to be executed outside the sensors/actuators (e.g. cameras & robotic arms). This reduces costs through lower hardware complexity as well as compute resource sharing amongst the IoT fleet.

Strict AI responsiveness requirements that before required IoT AI model embedding can now be met with co-located GPUs (e.g. on the same factory building) as the sensors and actuators. An example of this is the robot ‘dummification’ trend that is currently being observed for factory robotics with a view to reducing robot unit costs and fleet management.

In this webinar we will explore some real-life scenarios in which GPUs and low-latency connectivity can unlock previously prohibitively expensive solutions now available for businesses to put in place and lead the 4th industrial revolution.

  • Securing Linux machines with AppArmor Dec 21 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Mike Salvatore, Ubuntu Security Engineer II
    In an ideal world, applications would be free from security vulnerabilities but, once compromised, even a trusted application can become untrustworthy. AppArmor provides a crucial layer of security around applications. By providing the capability to whitelist an application’s permissible actions, AppArmor enables administrators to apply the principle of least privilege to applications. Once in place, AppArmor can halt attacks and minimise or prevent damage in the event of a breach.

    In this webinar you will learn:
    - Why a ‘defence in depth’ strategy should be employed to mitigate the potential damage caused by a breach
    - An explanation of AppArmor, its key features and why the principle of least privilege is recommended
    - The use of AppArmor in Ubuntu and snaps

  • Together We Sink or Swim: Plugging the BootHole Dec 10 2020 6:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    J. Michael, Principal Researcher, Eclypsium; D. Kiper, Software Eng., Oracle; C. Coulson, Sr Software Eng., Canonical
    In modern PC-based platforms, UEFI Secure Boot is used to protect the integrity of the boot process by ensuring that only authorized code is allowed to run during this critical time. If unauthorized code can run during the boot process, the operating system itself and the security guarantees it tries to provide can no longer be trusted. In April 2020, a security vulnerability in the GRUB2 bootloader allowing arbitrary code execution was disclosed to the GRUB2 maintainers and a number of other affected parties. Although the fix to the code itself was simple, only one line, complications with both the UEFI Secure Boot implementation and ecosystem necessitated a complex, industry-wide mitigation effort. Revocation, new shim review process, additional vulnerabilities found and fixed, and more. We'll discuss the problems we encountered and overcame as well as areas for future improvement from the perspective of the security researchers, the GRUB upstream maintainers, and the Linux distributions.

  • SQL Server on Kubernetes, the next frontier Dec 10 2020 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Carlos Robles, Consultant at Slalom & Founder at DBA Mastery
    Data professionals were caught by surprise when IT shops started to introduce VMs for SQL Server workloads 15 years ago. As it usually happens with new technologies, there was some hesitation at the beginning; however, it was a quick turnaround until they become the standard today. So, you may ask yourself today, are containers going down the same road? Do I have to be prepared for this containers / Kubernetes thing?

    The answer is yes! Containers are not necessarily a replacement to VMs or whatsoever. In reality, they will make an excellent addition to your technology stack that could help you to solve software problems.

    This session will provide you best practices, methods, and practical solutions to help you manage your SQL Server workloads on Kubernetes hosted in Ubuntu whether on-premises using MicroK8s or cloud services like AKS.

    You will be able to use Kubernetes to perform near to zero downtime version upgrades, set up high availability, and accomplish agile database deployments at the end of this session.
