    Search - originally a simple keyword-lookup functionality for files - has become a fundamental Internet service. Yet its failings are well known. Easy Web access to billions of pages of information has a downside. The pages are titled mostly according to their authors' whims and use subtly different terminology that can fool a simple keyword search - sometimes intentionally, sometimes not. In addi...

  • Revising the principles of technorealism [professional aspects]

    Publication Year: 2003, Page(s):128, 126 - 127
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (238 KB)

    That the technorealists little understand technology is unfortunate; that their mistaken ideas should be deemed uncontroversial is a revelation of the prevalent misunderstanding of technology that makes us tragically prone to be its slaves instead of its masters. These thoughts prompted the author to suggest that engineers have a professional responsibility to bring realism to technorealism. View full abstract»

    The communications and computing industries are both enduring a difficult period brought on by too much success in conveying their joint potential to investors and the broader public. The relationship between these two industries, which begin almost at the birth of the modern computing industry, has grown stronger and closer over the years. Just as computing devices are becoming more communication... View full abstract»

    Although digital computers and nerve tissue both use voltage waveforms to transmit and process information, engineers and neurobiologists have yet to cohesively link the electronic signaling of digital computers with the electronic signaling of nerve tissue in freely behaving animals. Recent advances will finally let us link computer circuitry to neural cells in live animals and, in particular, to... View full abstract»

    We have all heard about the increasing software content of embedded systems. To those who think of embedded software as autonomous programs hidden deep within the system, plugging away transparently and reliably on dedicated tasks, this increase might suggest that these programs are somehow becoming larger. In reality, the ongoing increases in processor performance let system designers implement i... View full abstract»

    Fifty-four million Americans - nearly one in five - live with some form of visual, auditory, motor, or cognitive disability. Although great strides have been made during the past decade to accommodate those with special needs in the physical workplace, the Internet's increasing commercial prominence is raising new questions about how far this effort should extend into cyberspace.

    Handheld devices have added more and more functionality over the past couple of years. Advances in wireless networks have contributed to this trend. However, the major factor has been the development of more powerful mobile processors. New mobile chips have given smart cellular phones, PDAs, and intelligent pagers the capability to run faster, access the Internet, handle multimedia, and offer othe... View full abstract»

    A 2001 IBM manifesto observed that a looming software complexity crisis -caused by applications and environments that number into the tens of millions of lines of code - threatened to halt progress in computing. The manifesto noted the almost impossible difficulty of managing current and planned computing systems, which require integrating several heterogeneous environments into corporate-wide com...

    NASA's successful exploration of space has uncovered vast amounts of new knowledge about the Earth, the solar system and its other planets, and the stellar spaces beyond. To continue gaining new knowledge has required - and will continue to require - new capabilities in onboard processing hardware, system software, and applications such as autonomy. For example, initial robotic space exploration m... View full abstract»
