The pillars upon which the Information Revolution rests are Computing, Communication and Networking which, though separate technologies, have over time become so intertwined as to be considered a single entity. Though Computing began soon after World War II, it came into its own only in the last quarter of the 20th century, with availability of affordable personal computers. Its importance grew so rapidly that in 1982 Time magazine named it 'Machine of the Year', instead of the regular 'Person of the Year'. Introduction of the World Wide Web in 1990s saw a massive surge in the reach of computers and led to beginning of merger of Computing with Communication and Networking. The synergistic benefits of the coming together of Computing, Communication and Networking have radically moulded human civilisation in modern times. This book is divided into four sections. Section I deals with current areas of importance in Computing, i.e. Software Engineering, Data Mining & Warehousing, Cloud Computing, Image Processing, Natural Language Processing etc.
Section II covers ideas and technologies related to the field of Communication, such as Telematics, Optical Burst Switching, Satellite Communication, Location Management etc. Section III is related to Networking related developments, such as Wireless Optical Broadband, Wireless Sensor Network, Telemedicine, Mobile Adhoc Networks etc. Section IV delves into technical areas that are intimately related to the above mentioned areas, such as Super Conductivity, Nano Technology and Sixth Sense technology. Thus, this book provides an eclectic coverage of new ideas and technologies emerging in Computing, Communicating and Networking and shall serve as a rich reference resource for people associated with these areas.
