PhysOrg.com) -- New free software, launched by Oxford University scientists, gives researchers the tools they need to collaborate more efficiently and quickly with colleagues scattered around the world and working in a variety of different research areas.
A new crop of location-based services for mobile devices will encourage users to interact more.
A team at Georgia Tech hopes to make it easier to create and use augmented reality applications.
Language barrier: To take advantage of multicore chips, programmers will need fundamentally new software
For decades, computer scientists tried to develop software that could automatically turn a conventional computer program -- a long sequence of instructions intended to be executed in order -- into a parallel program -- multiple sets of instructions that can be executed at the same time. Now, most agree that that was a forlorn hope: Code that can be parallelized is too hard to recognize, and the means for parallelizing it are too diverse and context-dependent. "If you want to get parallel performance, you have to start writing parallel code," says MIT computer-science professor Saman Amarasinghe. And MIT researchers are investigating a host ...
Open Xerox will let users test-drive new technologies
Henri Angelino, director de la Oficina de Relaciones Exteriores y profesor del Instituto Nacional de Informática (NII) de Tokio, se mostró muy interesado por el funcionamiento del Instituto Tecnológico de Informática (ITI), durante la visita que realizó ayer al Instituto.
A study of link shortening reveals hidden strands of the Web.
La consultora española Eptisa TI ha desarrollado el Buscador Federado del Ministerio de Política Territorial y Administración Pública, el mayor de Europa hasta la fecha, según la propia compañía, que abarca más de 350 portales web y da acceso a toda la información pública de la Administración General del Estado.
There is a controversy about the benefit of model-based software development in practice. Reliable and broadly spread research that analyses the status quo of model-based development and its effects on economics is still missing. This article describes the results of a global study by Altran Technologies, the chair of Software and Systems Engineering and the chair of Information Management of the University of Technology in Munich (TUM) which examines the costs and benefits of model-based development of embedded systems in the car industry.
At its most fundamental, computer science is about the search for better algorithms more efficient ways for computers to do things like sort data or filter noise out of digital signals. But most new algorithms are designed to run on serial computers, which process instructions one after another. Retooling them to run on parallel processors is rarely simple.
Investigadores andaluces crean una plataforma piloto para la toma de decisiones en el ámbito hospitalario
Juan Carlos Pérez, director científico del ITI: “La tecnología de reconocimiento facial, alternativa inmediata a la dactilar"
Operating systems for multicore chips will need more information about their own performance — and more resources for addressing whatever problems arise.
