Researchers in North Carolina State University's Department of Computer Science have developed a new data transfer protocol for the Internet that makes today's high-speed Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) connections seem lethargic.
Off-the-shelf compute power allows optimized data transfer Jeremy Walton, Jason Wood and Ken Brodlie The use of visualization as a tool for the understanding and analysis of numerical datasets (particularly those that are large, complicated or time-dependent) has been well-established for some time.
Pattern seeking with neural networks and representative democracies Bill Weaver, Ph.D. The conversion of raw inputs into meaningful output is the primary objective of the data acquisition and analysis process.
For those wishing some quick graphics, or just quick and dirty calculations of anything from simple arithmetic to differential equations, this may be the way to go. As a long-time user of HP's venerable 48GX as well as TI's 83 plus (I'm a calculation junkie and love to compare products) it never ceases to amaze me as to the capabilities of each new generation of hand calculators.
As more companies focus attention on protecting the "lifecycle" of data, customers for the first time will have choices Scott Deutsch The market for scientific data management began to mature in 2003 in ways that will dramatically benefit the entire laboratory and research community.
Spam is killing us all, and the true pessimists of the world are claiming that e-mail is doomed because of spam. I don't agree for a lot of reasons, but I sure as hell do agree that our friends comprising The 108th Congress of the United States of America had a serious lapse of logic when they passed the "CAN-SPAM Act" recently.
Digital Image Recovery Utilities: A number of intelligent programs are available for different operating systemsFebruary 29, 2004 7:00 pm | by John R. Joyce, Ph.D. | Blogs | Comments
With the proliferation of digital cameras and flash memory drives, instances of data loss in these devices is becoming more frequent. This column recently took a look at disk undelete utilities. In many instances, these same utilities will work to recover files accidentally deleted on solid state memory media.
Moving toward open multi-vendor data exchange and archiving standards Tony Davies, Maren Fiege and Mark Harnois In recent years, there has been an increasing amount of interest in data mining, data longevity, data exchange and data archiving.
There is much more to becoming compliant than simply upgrading your software Stuart M. Miller, Msc. The compliance readiness of the latest versions of commercially available chromatography data systems (CDS) has improved dramatically over the past few years.
