Realizing the Information Future The Internet and Beyond

Realizing the Information Future The Internet and Beyond

The potential impact of the information superhighway--what it will mean to daily work, shopping, and entertainment--is of concern to nearly everyone. In the rush to put the world on-line, special issues have emerged for researchers, educators and students, and library specialists. At the same time, the research and education communities have a valuable head start when it comes to understanding computer communications networks, particularly Internet. With its roots in the research community, the Internet computer network now links tens of millions of people and extends well into the commercial world. Realizing the Information Future is written by key players in the development of Internet and other data networks. The volume highlights what we can learn from Internet and how the research, education, and library communities can take full advantage of the information highway's promised reach through time and space. This book presents a vision for the proposed national information infrastructure (NII): an open data network sending information services of all kinds, from suppliers of all kinds, to customers of all kinds, across network providers of all kinds. Realizing the Information Future examines deployment issues for the NII in light of the proposed system architecture, with specific discussion of the needs of the research and education communities. What is the role of the institution when everyone is on-line in their homes and offices? What are the consequences when citizens can easily access legal, medical, educational, and government services information from a single system? These and many other important questions are explored. The committee also looks at the development of principles to address the potential for abuse and misuse of the information highway, covering Equitable and affordable access to the network. Reasonable approaches to controlling the rising tide of electronic information. Rights and responsibilities relating to freedom of expression, intellectual property, individual privacy, and data security. Realizing the Information Future includes a wide-ranging discussion of costs, pricing, and federal funding for network development and a discussion of the federal role in making the best technical choices to ensure that the expected social and economic benefits of the NII are realized. The time for the research and education communities to have their say about the information highway is before the ribbon is cut. Realizing the Information Future provides a timely, readable, and comprehensive exploration of key issues--important to computer scientists and engineers, researchers, librarians and their administrators, educators, and individuals interested in the shape of the information network that will soon link us all.

Ein Inhaltsadressierbares Speichersystem zur Unterstutzung Zeitkritischer Prozesse der Informationswiedergewinnung in Datenbanksystemen

Ein Inhaltsadressierbares Speichersystem zur Unterstutzung Zeitkritischer Prozesse der Informationswiedergewinnung in Datenbanksystemen

Author: M. Malms Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/03/1983

Die Anwendung der Hochintegrationstechnologie im Bereich der MeB-, Steuerungs- und Regelungstechnik mit oder ohne Verwen- dung von datenverarbeitenden Komponenten, wie beispielsweise Mikroprozessoren, ist in den letzten Jahren im wesentlichen unter dem Gesichtspunkt des Ersatzes konventioneller Techniken erfolgt. Mikrorechner waren insbesondere dort erfolgreich, wo bereits in der Vergangenheit Verfahren entwickelt worden wa- ren, die in das Rechnerprogramm Ubernommen werden konnten. Erst in jUngster Zeit ist eine Fortentwicklung bestehender Methoden unter spezieller Nutzung von hochintegrierten Komponenten zu be- achten. Weiterhin zeigt sich, daB die Entwicklung von neueren Verar- beitungsverfahren in vielen Bereichen der MeB- und Regelungs- technik neue Aspekte eroffnet. Dies hat dazu gefUhrt, daB die Komponentenhersteller sich rasch auf diese Situation einge- stellt haben. In diesen Bereich ist - insbesondere unter Verwendung lei- stungsfahiger Speicher- und Zusatzkomponenten - die von Herrn M.Malms vorgelegte Arbeit einzureihen. Sie befaBt sich mit einer Verarbeitungseinheit, die im wesentlichen ein in- haltsadressierbares Speichersystem darstellt, bei dem Zusatz- elemente samtliche Operationen der Informations-Wiedergewin- nung abzuarbeiten erlauben. Allerdings darf dieses System nicht nur unter dem Gesichtspunkt der schnellen Datenfindung gesehen werden, da auch andere Applikationsbereiche wegen der hohen Leistungsfahigkeit erschlossen werden konnen. Es ist zu begrUBen, daB diese Arbeit in der Reihe Informatik-Fachberichte herausgegeben werden kann. Somit wird dieses System einem breiteren Kreis von Fachleuten zuganglich, zumal eine Fortentwicklung mit UnterstUtzung der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft vorgesehen ist.

The Illiac IV The First Supercomputer

Author: R.Michael Hord Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/12/1982

The Illiac IV was the first large scale array computer. As the fore- runner of today's advanced computers, it brought whole classes of scientific computations into the realm of practicality. Conceived initially as a grand experiment in computer science, the revolutionary architecture incorporated both a high level of parallelism and pipe- lining. After a difficult gestation, the Illiac IV became operational in November 1975. It has for a decade been a substantial driving force behind the develooment of computer technology. Today the Illiac IV continues to service large-scale scientific aoolication areas includ- ing computational fluid dynamics, seismic stress wave propagation model- ing, climate simulation, digital image processing, astrophysics, numerical analysis, spectroscopy and other diverse areas. This volume brings together previously published material, adapted in an effort to provide the reader with a perspective on the strengths and weaknesses of the Illiac IV and the impact this unique computa- tional resource has had on the development of technology. The history and current status of the Illiac system, the design and architecture of the hardware, the programming languages, and a considerable sampling of applications are all covered at some length. A final section is devoted to commentary.
