CUDA & GPU For Security & Forensics

This article must hold the world record for the longest time taken to write. Let me explain, in 2008, flushed with success; I had just designed/innovated a cyber security probe that had been incredibly successful. It had out performed anything on the market at that time because it used special custom hardware in conjunction with a normal Intel based CPU, the special sauce in this combination was a cooperative processing model where the Pentium CPU worked in parallel with the FPGA custom hardware. The CPU instructed the FPGA to make certain calculations and apply certain fi lters not statically according to some arcane policy but dynamically as processing continued. I won’t be as bold to suggest it was AI, it certainly wasn’t but it could do very necessary things that other products still struggle to do.
