The F-35 Is Getting Some Major Computer and Software Upgrades

Introduced in the 1950s, the B-52 Stratofortress has remained in service thanks in part to the numerous upgrades it has received over the years. In fact, because it was introduced before the days of advanced computers, the B-52 has actually been at times much easier to update than more modern aircraft.

By contrast, the U.S. military’s highly advanced F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, which was developed with the latest and greatest aviation computer systems and software, has had no shortage of problems and bugs to work out, while upgrades have been anything but easy.


Since its introduction, the F-35s ground-based ALIS logistical system, intended to streamline reporting and implement predictive maintenance, has for years remained buggy to the point of “dysfunctionality” – requiring constant manual inputs and workarounds when automated systems failed to do what they were supposed to do.

The problem with software has been so great that

Open networking is at the center of macro trends that are driving some of today’s biggest conversations around the future of the data center. According to a SDxCentral article that cites research from the 650 Group, “Open networking revenue (excluding hyperscalers) is expected to reach $1.35 billion by 2023, with a compound annual growth rate of 33% between 2019 and 2023.” It’s clear that adopting open networking has been on many company’s to-do list for a while now, and with the Covid-19 pandemic forcing businesses into a “digital acceleration,” we’re seeing companies double down on the technology.

The rise of hybrid and multicloud strategies is driving companies to reconsider the way their data centers are structured. As businesses decide where to run their applications, both legacy and new, data center

Google announces new services to simplify MLOps

end to end view of Google’s MLOps services

Google has announced a new set of services aimed at simplifying Machine Learning Operations (MLOps) for data scientists and machine learning (ML) engineers.

According to Google, companies are using machine learning to solve challenging problems, but machine learning systems can create unwanted technical debt if it is not managed well. Google noted that machine learning has a few maintenance challenges on top of all of the challenges of traditional code: unique hardware and software dependencies, testing and validation of data and code, and the fact that models degrade over time as technology advances.
