By Nick Barber, IDG News Service | Hardware April 28, 2013, 3:37 PM — The future of computing comes to Paris this week with the annual Computer Human Interaction (CHI) conference, which showcases new approaches to the way users connect with electronics. CHI brings together researchers across multiple disciplines from technical to design and engineering with the hope of “cross pollination,” stated Patrick Baudisch the technical co-chair at CHI responsible for choosing the research that will be presented.
Although we are currently working our way into the era of accurate voice print and eye scan verifications, text passwords remain the primary means for securing our data. Now, a new research project has come up with a device that leapfrogs all the aforementioned methods and offers possibly the most secure password of them all: a thought.
What is the future of technology? The ultrafast supercomputers- computers that operate at speed s 100 times faster than current systems are now one-step closer to reality. Theultra-supercomputers, so-called “exascale computers” will be adept of astonishing feats such as modelingglobal climate scenarios, running molecular-level simulations of cells, and designing nanostructures.
(CNN) – File this under the “wouldn’t it be cool if …?” category. IBM is developing a computer system that could theoretically customize healthy recipes based on your personal taste buds. An outline of the project was presented as part of the company’s annual 5 in 5 list — five inventions that could change the world in five years.
IBM states the next wave of computing devices will address areas never before associated with technology, including the capability to see, smell, taste, and hear. If the report’s predictions prove accurate, such new computer abilities could dramatically change human society. IBM made these predictions in its recent “IBM 5 in 5″ report.
As educators struggle to motivate more students to take up technology-related majors, breakout on-line education startup, Khan Academy, has a novel approach.
Bands van nu, waaronder Racoon, brengen tracks van de jaren 60-band Popera uit. De Rotterdamse band Popera bestond eind jaren 60 slechts 18 maanden. De bandleden Jules Deelder, Rob Peters, Peter Snoei en Rosalie Peters brachten in die korte tijd drie singles uit, maar lieten maar liefst vijftig niet uitgebrachte tracks na.
It may sound stupid but soon people who are trained as IT security professionals may not be managing their firm’s actual IT security in the near future.
(Raleigh, N.C.) Consolidated Asset Recovery Systems (CARS), a Raleigh-based leader in repossession and remarketing services, this day announced it is partnering with Future Computer Systems, Inc. (FCSI), a software company providing on-line mail fulfillment services, to launch EZ-Letter, the industry’s first closed-loop solution for the electronic creation and distribution of statutory default forms such as “Notice of Sale” and “Notice to Repossess.” The system, managed from within CARS’ proprietary Internet-Based Electronic Asset Management System (I-BEAM) web portal, will provide lenders ...
