What I Am Excited and What I Fear

As a computer science student, I am so excited about the future of technology. Technology is growing so fast and it also creates so many useful things that become so important in our daily lives. There are so many new technologies that will transform the world and improve our lives. First, I am excited about the self-driving cars, there are millions of people who die from car accidents per year; therefore, having a self-driving car can be really useful to reduce the number of accident. In addition, I’m also waiting for a clean energy to appear, because it will be a solution for the environmental issues we are facing today. About education, online courses are offered at the moment, and I’m excited about the high-quality online education that we can have in the future. Moreover, another area that I’m excited about is health and medicine, I’m sure with the development of technology, the medical community will be able to find the cure for most of the diseases we have today. Those are the…

Topic For My Presentation

For my presentation in this class, I have to choose a topic to talk about. There are so many topics that relate to the virtual world such as cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, cyber bully, social network… They are interesting topics for me to do a presentation. However, I have to choose one and that is the cybersecurity/ cybercrime. Today, technology is growing rapidly, we now can have multiple devices in our pocket, and all of them connected to the Internet. Those devices contain our personal information such as phone number, credit card number, social security number… And I’m sure that we do not want other people to know about that information. Furthermore, the cybersecurity is not just an individual concern, but it’s also a worry for businesses as well as the government. Why is cybersecurity important? As I mentioned above, the technology today is more connected; individuals, businesses and societies are now linked in ways that would have been unimaginable just a couple of de…

Technological Convergence

It’s really useful when we talked about the convergence of technology in class so we can see how far we’ve gone. We started with a computer that was as big as a warehouse, and now we are able to carry multiple devices in our pocket. That is about the size of the device, talking about the speed, our devices right now are so much faster than what we had a few decades ago. So what does technological convergence mean? For me, it means the combination of two or more different technologies in a single device; it’s the process by which existing technologies merge into new forms that bring together different type of media and applications. For example, if we have a smartphone today, we are able to take pictures, watch movies, videos and also sending messages as well as calling. This is a combination of a television, a camera and a telephone.
The technological convergence will lead us to business innovation, increasing the efficiency of communication. It gives the customers the convenience of …

Dot Com to Dot Bomb!

We learned about the dot-com, and it is a very useful information for me. Just less than two decades ago, the Internet has changed our lives immeasurably. The World Wide Web began to have a significant impact in every aspect of our lives, from shopping, communication, to receiving news… A lot of businesses and companies have made millions from the Internet and many more hope to do the same, and then the “dot-com boom” occurred. It was a historic economic bubble started in the late 90s until 2001. During the late 20th century, the usage in computer and the Internet was increasing rapidly, for this reason, many Internet companies were launched, and they hope to make millions of dollars. When the dot-com bubble burst in the early 2000s, stocks sunk, and hundreds of companies went completely shut down; because of this, the American economy, as well as the world economy, started to slip down. However, there are still some companies that survive the crash such as Yahoo! and Amazon... The c…

It Isn't Just About Being A Programmer

We have the second guest speaker, who is a CEO and founder at cloudPWR, Shadrach White. He talked on the subject of cloud computing, how it's beneficial to businesses and our community. As a computer science student, I have a little knowledge about cloud computing. In my own perspective, cloud computing is the virtualization and central management of data center resources for software. How important is cloud computing in our life? If we are using an online service to send emails, listen to music or play games, then we are using the cloud computing, even if we don’t realize it. There are a lot of benefits of cloud computing such as: speed, global scale, reliability… As a student, I really don’t know how I can use my skills to build something that can help our community, having this guest speaker just gives me an idea about that. Shadrach introduced the projects that his company built, those are some great projects that solved a lot of problems that we are having today. Those proje…
