Universal Decoder Chip

Researchers at MIT and Maynooth University have created a telecoms chip that can universally error correct noise found during transmission of data on a network without needing to know the structure of the noise beforehand. Hat tip to the Maynooth part of the team who I presume had dibs on naming the chip GRAND (Guessing Random Additive Noise Decoding)!

The Inverse Conway Law

Melvin Conway stated in 1968 that "Any organisation that designs a system (defined broadly) will produce a design whose structure is a copy of the organisation’s communication structure.". Andreas Wolff published an interesting post on CTO Craft about using an inverse Conway Law when designing the struture of an organisation.
