  • Hacking primes
    Visualization of prime numbers may further the understanding and safeguarding of encryption techniques.
  • Predicting context aware computing performance
    Computer systems will increasingly need to be sensitive to their context to serve their users better.In this paper we forecast the capabilities of context aware computing and relating it to a time frame.Our short-range analysis indicates such systems will become commercially available and common by 2007.Our mid-range analysis indicates that the development pace of Context Aware systems will start to slow down by 2020 and will reach maturity by 2035.
