Scientific Research : BOINC Client-Server Distributed Computing Projects (volunteer computing)

  1. Deep Space Network @ Home (Recovers Voyager Program mission & New Horizons mission telemetry) -- an important "add on" the the currently existing Deep Space telemetry reception systems. 
  2. Error Correction Codes @ Home (Monte Carlo Error Correction kernel & toolkit / research suite).
  3. Hyperinflation Predictor @ Home (to predict hyperinflation risk in an economy).
  4. A Climate Prediction, Fluid Dynamics and Cryptography coprocessor for distributed computing.
  5. A Climate Prediction "Resolution Independent Trickle Data Interface for Distributed Computing" ... 
  6. A distributed computing cryptography research project is needed to find Intel & AMD rogue microcode in the x86 (and x86-64) architectures that is being used to create instructions that allow for "Privilege Level Escalation" essentially eliminating the x86 state machine's ability to handle secrets. The project should also look for the new instructions (or modified existing instructions) within the code fragments of existing operating system code on Microsoft Windows & Apple Computer systems that have an x86 microcode patching framework.




Scientific Research : Broadcasting, Telemetry and Internet





Audio Engineering & Broadcasting
  1. DVB-T2W : A 10 MHz to 24 MHz per channel DVB-T transmission system for Australia, Canada and NZ.
  2. A proposal for a modern Kurier System to allow for millisecond pulsed relay of Morse Code over HF. 
  3. Fractal antennas are needed for reliable ASTC 8VSB DTV reception.
  4. There is an art to audio compression: recommended bit rates for MPEG, MP3, Ogg & AAC encoding
  5. A global encoding standard is needed for International Broadcasters to relay [real time] information (and text only websites) using radioteletype (RTTY). The wired Internet does not always work! (Work in progress!)




Barcodes

  1. Barcodes need to be decoded (and encoded) by an open source system that implements processing pipeline that has some similarities to the BOINC client system. This barcode system service must be free of any and all intellectual property. Most ad-hoc barcode encoders & decoders are closed source.
  2. A <barcode> tag proposal for HTML / XML / SVG or MathML.




Cryptography & Information Theory (Coding Theory) related

  1. A Low Complexity Fix for the MD5 family of cryptographic hash functions, "Backward + Forward MD5".
  2. A Constantly Variable "Entropy Mechanism" for Verifying BitTorrent Clients.
  3. Using BitTorrent objects as rotors for secure file or object transfer over the Internet.
  4. A Generalized Framework for Internet Filter Evasion (still a set of ideas in formation). 
  5. In Error Correction OR Cryptography : Concatenated Coding is more secure and reliable ... as Information Theory and Coding Theory fundamentally function the same way with respect to concatenation.
  6. Onward reading, Winnowing and Chaffing are underused in cryptography.
  7. Maritime AIS : Ready for continuous use by security intelligence networks everywhere... [not related to the Maritime section here]
  8. For any language : How many bits of "stateful complexity" does a Verb or Noun have? (Work in progress!)




IT Systems

  1. The spreadsheet wiki : It often takes dozens [or hundreds] of people working together on a spreadsheet to keep its accurate and authoritative. Google Docs (Wiki) has a limited non-wiki variant of the idea called : Google Sheets. The Google version of the technology is still a work in process.
  2. Financial Transaction Processing Systems have unknown hyperinflation failure risks relating to IEEE 32 bit (and 64 bit) number overflow (per comp.risks [add link to website]).
  3. A global standard for 24 bit, 40 bit and 72 bit floating point numbers is needed. 
Networking
  1. FTP-NG "FTP Next Generation" : Adds resilient download and upload functionality to FTP based on protocol concepts and data structures borrowed from BitTorrent. In essence, a new FTP state machine.
  2. A BitTorrent Private Tracker Client "Accounting Error Message" Protocol.
  3. Some overdue Changes to Make BitTorrent Clients and Protocols More Functionally Useful.
  4. Proposal for improvements to the existing NTP networks in Australia, Canada and NZ.
  5. A wireless internet access point social protocol system that works. Namely, a open access point that allows one to subscribe to a subscriber access point (to be written someday).
Time Signals Distribution
  1. The Android OS needs a few functionality improvements too, and some have been implemented. [Time Transfer issues still are a problem!]
  2. Distributed Time Service with Advanced Features (needs to be Wikified to optimize design).




Space Science & GIS (Geographical Information Systems)





The Electrical Power Grid









Social & Technical Commentary (proposals, cartoons, graphs)

  7. Film & Television you probably have not seen (CA) : Canadian National Film Board.
  8. Film & Television you probably have not seen (NZ) : NZ On Screen, NZ National Film Unit.




Social & Technical Commentary : Global Finance Crisis related
  1. The 0th Law of Microeconomics and Macroeconomics, any Economist or economic theory that does not heed this law just cannot be trusted.
  2. The US and European Union will only recover from the 2008-2009 mortgage market induced depression around 2026 at the earliest.
  3. The ongoing Global Economic Depression that has been created as a result of the Global Finance Crisis needs a name, so here are some suggested names.
  4. The Gilt Dragon Omen (aka The "Vergulde Draeck" Omen) that will announce the decline and collapse of the US Dollar.
