Julie helped with specific clients and was quick witted, yet professional head to toe.
After catching the number from the screen, she looked up, flashed her smile and explained, “Please excuse me. Continue your discussions, but I think I need to take this call. I’ll be back shortly.”
They nodded at her as she turned and went out of the study, shutting the door as she left. Each of them refreshed their drinks and sat down again to collect their thoughts.
Wolfgang suggested, “Do we need to look a little closer at the new advanced computer arms race that China just took the lead in? We know that they have been pouring money into a program to build the fastest supercomputer in the world and they have made their goal. Their Nuclear Asymmetric Binary Operational Ballistics system, or NABOB, is now the fastest supercomputer among the sovereigns. However internally the Chinese refer to it as the IQ 5678 supercomputer. The United States, by all appearances, is taking a really critical look at their technological capabilities.
“However, unlike the other developed nations that are using these massive processing monoliths to predict climate change, or map the human genome, or correctly identify the sub-atomic components such as the God-Particle, the Chinese have kept their agenda a secret. We believe that their secret project has to do with what Jacob received from Su Lin via an email account used by Daisy.”
Quip stepped into the discussion as he added, “After we found Su Lin’s unauthorized hack into ICABOD, we also discovered she used it to then penetrate the cyber-wall around the Chinese’s NABOB. Jacob and I both suspect she went nosing around as we found some log files that were missed when she was cleaning that link into NABOB. She must have found some fairly interesting routines because of what she had built.
“We also believe Su Lin, or Master Po as she was known then, headed up the framework for NABOB with her former colleague Professor Lin at her Cyber-Warfare College in China. We presume that he took over much of that college and associated projects when Master Po was removed from the scene.”
Jacob nodded, then suggested, “The foundation of the π-R-Squared DP logic was apparently one of the more interesting things Su Lin created when she ran the Cyber–Warfare College. The logic is currently in use by NABOB. We had never seen anything like it before. I have also confirmed that it is what Su Lin used to build the kill-switch inside the grasshopper-loop code which we still have not been able to completely disable or repurpose. Annoying, but there it is.”
Petra then added, “All good points and some of the blanks are filling up though far slower than we’d like.
