報告題目：How will computers evolve over the next 10 years
報告人：Prof. Frank Zhigang Wang, Kent University
摘要：Computer science has impact on many parts of our lives. Computer scientists craft the technologies that enable the digital devices we use every day and computing will be at the heart of future revolutions in business, science, and society. Our research targets the next generation computing paradigms and their applications. We have been working on Cloud Computing, Grid Computing & Internet II for many years. A developed Cloud/Grid Computing platform conforms to the Internet standard and can universally accelerate Office/Database/Web/Media applications by a factor up to ten. This work won an ACM/IEEE Super Computing finalist award. We will also report our research on Green Computing, Brain Computing and Future Computing.
