    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (721 KB)

    FreeBSD (an open source Unix-like OS) and Apple’s Mac OS use similar BSD functionality but take different approaches. FreeBSD implements a traditional compact monolithic Unix kernel, whereas Mac OS builds the BSD Unix functionality on top of the Mach microkernel. The authors provide an in-depth technical investigation of both approaches. View full abstract»

    Could combining quantum computing and machine learning with Moore’s law produce a true “rebooted computer”? This article posits that a three-technology hybrid-computing approach might yield sufficiently improved answers to a broad class of problems such that energy efficiency will no longer be the dominant concern.
