    To realize the compelling future of computing studies, researchers and analysts must rethink the traditional way of partitioning and structuring computer science and engineering. A framework that USC is already partially implementing combines an explicitly interdisciplinary academic focus with a systems-oriented perspective. A more efficient organization for computer science and engineering (CSE) ... View full abstract»

    The European Patent Office cooperates closely with the national patent offices from the member states of the European Patent Organization as well as many nonmember states. The EPO's Information Systems-Research and Prototyping directorate recently surveyed the functionality of available collaboration tools. The study looked at three scenarios related to EPO functions. The first concerns patent exa... View full abstract»

    Numerous communications security standards - including IP security (IPsec), secure shell (SSH), and various forms of e-mail encryption - now exist to protect information in transit. However, businesses have come to realize that the mishandling of stored data - information at rest - is also a significant threat to them and their customers. Whether data is stolen, lost, or discarded, the results are... View full abstract»

    Chips are getting more expensive both to design and to manufacture. That makes it tempting for semiconductor companies to push more functions onto a single chip, using software to customize it for specific applications. Using software to customize a few platforms for a variety of applications spreads the mask costs over more chips. It also saves the time of switching from one mask set to another. ...

    History shows that user and data issues remain core development concerns. The two most important part of a computing system are the users and their data, in that order. This issue has two aspects: standardizing the data usage, as in the second of the two anecdotes, and blocking invalid data on its way in to programs. View full abstract»
