Software Engineering: 2 Directions at Once

By David Alan Grier, IEEE Computer Society President

You've got to read the audience.  It's one of hardest things you need to do when you are giving a technical talk.  Are they looking for details and guidance?  Are they looking for inspiration and vision of the future?  Again, if that is what they want then you had better be prepared to give it to them.  How about a fair and honest assessment of the state of technical careers?  That is not as common among audiences. Therefore, you had better be ready for comments if you are giving that kind of talk. Read more

Computing Now: The Web of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is an extension to the current Internet that enables connections and communication among physical objects and devices. Estimates suggest that there will be 50 billion devices and people connected and leveraging the vision and technology behind IoT by 2020. A related term that's currently somewhat in vogue is Internet of Everything (IOE), which recognizes the key role of people, or citizen sensing (such as through online social media), to complement the physical sensing implied by IoT. The term Web of Things (WoT) goes beyond the focus on the Internet as the mode of exchanging data, instead bringing in all resources and interactions involving devices, data, and people on the Web. Correspondingly, it brings into focus a wide variety of challenges and opportunities while paving a way to a variety of exciting applications for individuals to industries. Read more               Chinese version
