Computing Without the Software

computing without the software special research report Photo by
In my job at Intel, I get to travel far and wide to meet with research groups working on parallel computing. And as travel, I am constantly struck by the differences between the state of HW and SW in parallel computing. On the HW front, we are sweating the details. We know there will be many cores. We know the cores in a single processor may be different. We know there will be a scalable on-die interconnect and that the caches will need to adapt to the workloads to maximize locality. I’ve spoken to countless HW architects working on many core systems and frankly, the “big picture” view seems pretty well locked up. But on the ...
and has a specialized meaning. With Trusted Computing, the computer will consistently behave in expected ways, and those behaviors will be enforced by hardware and software. 1 . In practice, Trusted Computing uses cryptography to help enforce a selected behavior. The main functionality of TC is to allow someone else to verify that only authorized code runs on a system. This authorization covers initial booting and kernel and may also cover applications and various scripts. Just by itself TC does not protect against attacks that exploit security vulnerabilities introduced by programming bugs. TC is controversial because it is ...
SiliconANGLE — Blog — The iPad & the End-User Computing Revolution
the Apple iPad is clearly a phenomenon. And with at least three competing thin neo-tablets -- the WebOS-based iSlate from HP and the Android tablet from Google, both promised for the fall, and the eeePad running Windows 7 from Asus, due early next year -- this clearly is the next generation in end-user computing. And while these are being sold initially as consumer devices, they are going to hit the office with the speed and at least the impact of the original iPhone. These devices are changing end-user expectations about computing, and that definitely includes the expectations of your CEO, CFO, and board of directors. The big ... market research, surveys and trends
Giannis Giataganas: Lets talk about cloud!!

Report: 41 Percent of Personal Computing Software Is Pirated ...
The Business Software Alliance is taking the offensive, sending out millions of takedown notices the first six months of the year in a bid to combat piracy. Reason: if the BSA is to believed, about 41 percent of all software on personal computers is pirated – socking the industry with some $53 billion in losses. That’s the size of the proposed 2010 budget for the state of Illinois. The alliance, comprised of a host of software makers , ranging from Adobe to Quark, said in a new report Thursday that it has issued 2.4 million takedown notices worldwide to peer-to-peer networks the first half of the year – a 200 percent ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Survey: 45 Percent of Local Governments Using Cloud Computing
Local government officials' trepidation about cloud computing could be easing, as evidenced by a survey of IT decision-makers released Tuesday, April 20, that found 45 percent of local governments are using some form of cloud computing for applications or services. The survey, conducted during the first two weeks of April by the nonprofit Public Technology Institute (PTI), aggregated the opinions of 93 local government IT executives. The findings revealed that an additional 19 percent of local governments plan to implement some form of cloud computing within the next 12 months, while 35 percent don't intend to do so at ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
GPU Computing Comes of Age: Is 2011 Nvidia's Year?
I was at the Nvidia Quadro conference earlier this week and it is starting to look like 2011 is Nvidia's year to shine.  

There is a massive movement towards GPU computing from scientific, business, entertainment, and even browsers are moving to GPU computing. Nvidia as a graphics pure play is increasingly referenced as the company driving this initiative because they aren't just working on building better graphics hardware but the software tools needed to drive the needed advancements that are now changing the industry.  

So, let's explore this. GPU Computing at the Core The primary benefit to GPU ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Tamil computing: the present and the future
Starting from the late-1970s and on into the early-1980s, when personal computers became available on a significant scale, a number of Tamil professionals around the world were enthused to undertake individual efforts to incorporate Tamil language in computers and in the then-fledgling Internet. By the late-1980s, the degree of incompatibility among these efforts had limited the value of their contributions to local contexts. The first initiative to identify the dimensions of disorder in Tamil computing was undertaken in 1997 at a conference in Singapore (since then called the First Tamil Internet Conference). The issues raised ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Cloud Computing: Computing Without the Software
As a small business owner, you may or may not have heard the concept of Cloud Computing. It�s dominated the landscape of technology discussions over much of the past 12 months, but you may think it means nothing to you. Or you may find the concept scary because you don�t know what it means. I was the same way � I had heard of the concept a few months ago and was clueless. I figured it was something I should know about but didn�t so I just try to avoided it for awhile. I finally decided to take a different route � discover what it was and what it meant to me as a project manager, consultant, and small business ...
Newsletter: 09-08-09 - 4 Myths That Cost You Sales
In the past, professional services were usually marketed through a network of personal relationships and word of mouth referrals. These techniques still work, but not like they used to. To stay competitive, professional service providers should challenge these four common marketing myths. In the face of this severe, take-no-prisoners economic downturn, far too many organizations are responding in knee-jerk reaction to the thought of holding all but the smallest of meetings. Yet communicating is precisely what needs to be done to make it through the recession and be ready to move once the economic cloud lifts. ...
