The competition between nations for leadership in communications, has morphed into outright combat. If it's not a campaign the US can win, do we start drawing down the mission? Or can the hope of a second wave compel us to double down?
When Scott Fulton looks at the data center, HPC, infrastructure and next gen architecture, he focuses on the big picture.
There could be a present-day technological solution to the geopolitical dilemma that continues to hang over the communications industry. Its biggest obstacle may not be about methodology so much as ideology.
The problem with distributed computing, as with distributed anything, is finding the appropriate system of governance. A management model for distributed computing may be emerging, though it might not be the one telcos were hoping for.
There may be only one way a quantum computer could more accurately predict an election’s outcome than a professional poll: by knowing perhaps too much about you. Luckily, that’s a feasibility.
If a quantum system can predict the locations of air molecules in a hurricane, you’d think predicting election results would be a much simpler problem. A quantum physicist and a neuroscientist tell us otherwise.
The most expedient way to produce the algorithms you need for a new class of computer that works like the brain, its engineers are discovering, is through a Darwinian exercise in natural selection.
One big pile, as Arlo Guthrie once disseminated from practical experience, isn’t really better than two little ones. Yet for a type of computer even less mindful of the law, all the little piles are already one big one.
The case Nokia is making for empowering everyday enterprises — not just telcos — with 5G, is that their infrastructure will drive their productivity. Does that claim stand up under closer scrutiny? We asked economists.
Is it a crisis when a country holds a commanding lead in supplying a critical global market successfully manages to avoid disrupting that market amid a pandemic, and doesn’t have “United” in its name?
In the short term, demand for IT services has increased since the pandemic’s onset. In a way, that’s the problem: The economy may not be healthy enough to sustain these services’ essential providers.
It won’t be the tech economy you remember, with its Black Friday bargains, annual tech festivals, and star-studded rollout events. Are we ready to make our livings around what devices do come forth?
With the dawn of the small cell era apparently postponed, 5G stakeholders look to one of the newly ratified components of the 3GPP standard as a revenue stream: Say hello, telcos, to distributed cloud computing.
Before the pandemic, telcos pondered how to sell 5G fixed wireless so convincingly that consumers would willingly ditch their Wi-Fi routers. Now that Wi-Fi is everyone’s best friend, that strategy has pivoted completely.
The fate of nations may depend upon the contributions of brave patients willing to risk their lives for treatments and vaccines. The technology that supports them, like most everything else, has been ravaged by the pandemic.
In a future where human contacts will need greater protection, the driverless car could end up giving people greater control than they had before.
