    Experts have talked about the dangers of mobile malware since the first Palm Pilot Trojan horse, called Liberty, was reported in 2000, and the first mobile-phone virus, Cabir, was reported in 2004. However, each year, mobile viruses and similar threats have turned out to be a minor concern. In part, this is because there have been far fewer smart mobile devices than PCs, making desktops much more ... View full abstract»

    Two thousand years separate us from an ancient Greek computing device known as the Antikythera mechanism. The Antikythera mechanism is an ancient astronomical calculator that contains a lunisolar calendar, predicts eclipses, and indicates the moon's position and phase. Its use of multiple dials and interlocking gears eerily foreshadows modern computing concepts from the fields of digital design, p... View full abstract»

    This article presents the ERD Working Group's collective judgment with respect to the long-term potential of nanoscale memory and logic devices to replace silicon-based CMOS logic or baseline memory technology. It does not judge their potential to supplement or complement CMOS. The intent is thus prescriptive, not prescriptive: to provide a technically grounded, objective benchmark for emerging re...

    Morphic architectures embrace a broad class of mixed-signal systems that focus on a particular application and draw inspiration for their structure from the application. In some cases, processing is carried out in the analog domain, offering orders-of-magnitude improvement in performance and power dissipation, albeit with reduced accuracy. The emergence of many-core (symmetric and asymmetric) arch... View full abstract»

    Emerging research device technologies might first appear in special applications that can extend conventional general-purpose processors along one of several axes. These applications could optimize the performance of future workloads such as recognition, mining, and synthesis by using the unique nonlinear output characteristics associated with the emerging research devices. However, a new device t... View full abstract»

    Healthcare providers could use ad hoc networks to supplement the sometimes spotty and unreliable coverage of infrastructure-oriented wireless networks for patient monitoring. A proposed incentive-based approach encourages devices to cooperate as routers, significantly improving message delivery reliability. View full abstract»
