  • Writing the future: computers in science fiction

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):29 - 37
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (733 KB)

    Although we cannot be certain that science fiction directly influenced the course that computing technology has taken over the past 50 years (1950-2000), the genre has, at the very least, anticipated the technologies we are using and developing. Speculation about our future human relationship to computers, and to technology in general, has been the province of science fiction for at least a hundre... View full abstract»

    To keep pace with the Internet's growth, the maximum speed of core routers and switches must increase at the same rate. In a study conducted in 1969, the author analyzed 39 scientific computers released or planned for release from 1958 to 1972 to determine optimal computer replacement strategy (http://www.ziplink.net/lroberts/Forecast69.htm). This study looked at the trend of CPU throughput per do... View full abstract»

    Processors that can be configured by end users promise to combine hardware's speed and efficiency with software's flexibility. Developments in configurable computing increasingly blur the line between hardware and software, a trend that represents a major shift in computing practice. To keep their offerings current and relevant, universities should modify their computer science curricula to better... View full abstract»

    Today's computers operate on the same fundamental principle as the mechanical devices dreamed up by Charles Babbage in the 19th century and later formalized by Alan Turing: one stable state of the machine represents one number. Even seemingly nonstandard computation models, such as the one based on DNA, share this basic principle. Recently, physicists and computer scientists have realized that not... View full abstract»

    One of the most valuable skills a software professional can develop, expectations management is something surprisingly few people know or practice. The author has witnessed more than 100 stakeholder software requirements negotiations in which inflated expectations about the simplicity of the problem or ease of providing a solution have caused the most difficulty. Expectations management holds the ... View full abstract»

    Fifty years ago (1950), nanotechnology could only merit serious consideration in dreams and science fiction. The author now believes nanotechnology's existence to be a certainty. The only question now is “when”. The application areas for a mature nanotechnology industry are astounding. The author predicts nanotechnology will virtually eliminate pollution from the earth's air and water,... View full abstract»

  • Defining the Web: the politics of search engines

    Although the Web itself might truthfully claim a sovereign disinterested and unbiased attitude toward the people who use it, the authors claim that search engines, the tools that navigate the astronomical number of pages (800 million and counting), favor popular, wealthy, and powerful sites at the expense of others. Some researchers have estimated that, taken individually, none of the Web search e... View full abstract»

    Few people in the scientific community would dispute the role NASA has played in the advancement of aerospace and aerodynamic research in the 20th century. But to fulfill next-century goals of a manned mission to Mars and deep space exploration, NASA must drive the state of the art in computer science in the 21st century the way it has pushed advances in aerospace, rocketry, and aerodynamic resear...

    It's hard to imagine that as few as 40 years ago (1960), US economists were forecasting a crisis of leisure that would arise because of society's increased time savings from technology (R. Denney, 1959). As anyone who totes a laptop, cell phone, and pager can attest, technology seems to have overcomplicated life rather than uncomplicated it. Something has gone terribly awry in the way people and c... View full abstract»
