    There is a growing trend in the financial world for criminals to focus their efforts on the telephone banking channel. For this reason, many financial institutions have begun to fortify their security system by incorporating biometric identification. Just as there are no two identical faces, fingerprints or irises in the world, so there aren't two human voices alike. And since phones already come ... View full abstract»

  • Computing - The art of quantum computing - Can 'spooky action at a distance' be harnessed to build a new class of computers?

    Publication Year: 2007 , Page(s): 30 - 34

    This paper presents a different kind of computer that will exploit the peculiarities of the quantum world to accomplish number-crunching feats that are currently impossible. The principles by which a quantum computer would work are quite different from those governing today's classical computers. Despite current processor and memory designs already having to take quantum mechanical effects into ac... View full abstract»

    This paper describes an application-specific processor (add-on chips) that helps computers work harder without consuming massive amounts of energy. If the problem is the power demand of general-purpose processors, the answer may lie in the application-specific acceleration, a technique being tried out in supercomputers. UK-based Clearspeed Technology reworked a chip design developed for PC graphic... View full abstract»

  • Computing - Two good to be true - Multicore microprocessors may be great for doing lots of things at once, but what about doing one thing more quickly?

    Publication Year: 2007 , Page(s): 40 - 43

    Microprocessor makers have come up with a design that combines two or more independent processors on one chip. Most PC programs, however, cannot take advantage of additional processors since they have been written to run on a single processor. Despite this, programs have still been getting more powerful because of improved processors. Organizing software so that blocks of code in one program can b... View full abstract»
