    The ability to construct a musical theory from examples presents a great intellectual challenge that, if successfully met, could foster a range of new creative applications. Inspired by this challenge, we sought to apply machine-learning methods to the problem of musical style modeling. Our work so far has produced examples of musical generation and applications to a computer-aided composition sys... View full abstract»

    Since its initial outbreak, scientists have sought to control the severe acute respiratory syndrome epidemic (SARS). So far, though, these SARS researchers have paid too little attention to the complex relationships between the epidemic, the environment, and our Information and Knowledge Age society. Fortunately, information technology can help scientists investigate the epidemic's cause and unvei... View full abstract»

    The Siggraph/Eurographics Graphics Hardware 2003 workshop, held in San Diego, will likely be remembered as a turning point in modern computing. In one of those rare moments when a new paradigm visibly begins changing general-purpose computing's course, what has traditionally been a graphics-centric workshop shifted its attention to the nongraphics applications of the graphics processing unit. GPUs... View full abstract»

    Despite the promise, Web services present network administrators with a thorny problem: as network security becomes an increasing concern, Web services open up networks by letting outside users access databases, applications, and internal users. Traditional security techniques - such as virtual private networks or secure sockets layer (SSL) technology - cannot secure the large number of transactio... View full abstract»

    In many popular visions of ubiquitous computing, the environment proactively responds to individuals who inhabit the space. For example, a display magically presents a personalized advertisement, the most relevant video feed, or the desired page from a secret government document. Such capability requires more than an abundance of networked displays, devices, and sensors; it relies implicitly on re... View full abstract»

    The computing world already agrees that software should never be written more than once. The goal of reusable software is widely shared, and developers have undertaken many projects to realize it. I applaud these efforts, and I have also attempted to contribute to them, but I now propose something more radical:my contention is that much software doesn't need to be written even once - particularly ...

    Presence technology has long been an integral part of instant messaging. The technology lets users determine if their contacts are online, signed onto their IM applications, and ready to receive messages. This makes IM different from traditional forms of communication, in which users send out messages or calls without knowing whether the recipient is present to receive them. Now, presence technolo...

    Switch fabrics are a principal building block in networking and communications platforms, but the growing use of merchant fabric silicon for diverse market segments is making it increasingly challenging to evaluate and compare the various product offerings. Current fabric selection methodology involves complex comparisons of speeds and feeds using limited data that switch-fabric vendors provide. T... View full abstract»
