CoderDynamics article A couple of weeks ago, I was doing some research for my book, The Future of Computing, when I stumbled upon this post from the blog of a software engineer named Chris.
Chris wrote:The first part of the post is about the use of machines to process data.
Here’s how Chris described the problem:In some cases, the data is so large that processing it is prohibitively expensive.
In some cases it’s even impossible to find a single machine that can handle it all.
In other cases, it is so big that it can be done by machines in many locations at once.
And in some cases where processing is still prohibitive, it may be possible to leverage some machine learning techniques to automate the task.
This will be the first part in a series of posts looking at the use cases of computing by machines, and the use patterns of companies that are using these machines.
In the next part of this series, we’ll look at the role that the internet plays in this data transformation.
