Abstract:

Technology advances have been radically transforming the fundamentals of traditional computing paradigms. Of particular importance are three concomitant inversions:

(a) Emerging wire-speeds have been inverting the classical speed hierarchy, with I/O rates outstripping CPU speeds;

(b) Tagged XML software is inverting the classical sequential-code/random-access-data computing into sequential-data/random-access-code; and

(c) Storage abundance is inverting the assumptions underlying client-server roles in processing and distributing content.

Similar radical changes have resulted in disruptive paradigm transformation from mainframe-computing to desktop-computing then to Internet-computing. It is thus not unreasonable to ask, whether the Internet-computing paradigm may be similarly transformed, and if so, what might be the characteristics of post-Internet computing. This presentation will consider these questions, focusing on their research implications.
