    The CORTEX project envisions a new class of applications comprising (possibly many) smart components, called sentient objects, that can sense their environment and interact with it and each other by accepting and producing events. These interactions might occur in ways that demand predictable and sometimes guaranteed quality of service (QoS). However, achieving predictability is difficult given th... View full abstract»

    Loosely coupled grids allow straightforward resource sharing because resources are accessed and exploited through de facto standard protocols and interfaces, similar to the Internet's early stages. The loosely coupled model allows easier, scalable, and compatible deployment at a lower global performance expense, compared to a tightly coupled alternative. Because we can apply the end-to-end princip... View full abstract»

    Within the span of a few days in late March 2005, separate events surrounding peer-to-peer computing starkly illustrated the dichotomy between steady advances in P2P technologies and the murky legal and ethical climate that surrounds them. Those events included the release of a new P2P technology that will enable a user community to filter out mislabeled or corrupt files and the appointment of US ... View full abstract»

    Colleges and universities have been in the forefront of the US debate over file-sharing technology. College students, heavy per capita consumers of digital music, were among the most active file-sharing network users, angering content providers for not observing intellectual property claims. LionShare combines P2P technology that ties in a user's activity to their network identification. LionShare... View full abstract»
