Artificial Intelligence: How real can it get?

Our fascination with artificial intelligence (AI) has existed for over 50 years – whether in the form of a robot, software system or some nebulous entity. AIs have been shown as entities that can be benevolent (Star Wars’ R2D2 and C3PO), malevolent (Skynet from Terminator) or simply misunderstood (HAL 9000 from 2001 – A Space Odyssey).


Virtual and Augmented Reality

The field of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) is gaining steam with a multitude of companies designing and developing products to take us to the next level. This has been fueled by advances in technology such as increased hardware processing power, better software algorithms and displays that are sharper, lighter and more power efficient, coupled with more affordable technology.

Mobile and Personal Cloud Computing - The Next Step in Cloud Computing

As the number of internet-enabled mobile devices grows, unfortunately so do malicious web-based threats. So how can businesses manage the opportunities and exposures associated with cloud computing and Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC)? This whitepaper provides an overview of these maturing technologies, security issues and the IT industry countermeasures to address them. As the technology behind cloud computing is the foundation for MCC, this paper provides a discussion of cloud computing before addressing MCC.


Wearable Technology - Function, Fit, Fashion, Fun

Have you seen a person wearing a laptop strapped to their back or someone jogging along the street with probes and cables dangling from various parts of their body? The answer is most certainly “no.”  However, due to the ongoing miniaturization of electronic components and increasing computing power, these same electronic technologies are now available in devices known as “wearable technology” or “wearable devices.” This whitepaper touches on the current and future uses of wearable technology, as well as the obstacles that designers and manufacturers of these products face.
