Nerds 2.0.1 a brief history of the Internet ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A three part series examining the ins and outs of one of the most volatile industries: the Internet. This second episode examines the advent of the PC and the need to connect them all to a network. But first someone had to figure out how to do it. That guy was Bob Metcalfe, founder of 3Com. As the market for networking evolved the battle began in earnest; 3Com, Sun, Novell, Cisco and Microsoft entered the market creating a civil war and billion-dollar partnerships

Information highway access with liberty and justice for all? ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The construction of the global information superhighway is underway and issues of accessibility, commerce, rights of way, taxation and regulation are surfacing. Members of the Sunergy 12 panel give their points of view on who is in control of these important issues and suggest possible directions which could develop as the global information infrastructure takes shape. Includes a live demonstration of the Internet by the founder of Internet Talk Radio, Carl Malamud

America's cyber future security and prosperity in the information age ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
America's growing dependence on cyberspace has created new vulnerabilities that are being exploited as fast as or faster than the nation can respond. Cyber attacks can cause economic damage, physical destruction, and even the loss of human life. They constitute a serious challenge to U.S. national security and demand greater attention from American leaders. Despite productive efforts by the U.S. government and the private sector to strengthen cyber security, the increasing sophistication of cyber threats continues to outpace progress. To help U.S. policymakers address the growing danger of cyber insecurity, this report features accessible and insightful chapters on cyber security strategy, policy, and technology by some of the world's leading experts on international relations, national security, and information technology

TEXT COMPRESSION OPTIMIZATION ( Book )
1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The report describes research performed on optimization techniques for the compression of text. The areas of concentration of effort were: (a) Evaluation of alternative text segmentation procedures on the basis of compression efficiency provided; (b) the problem of efficiency variability that occurs when codes designed to suit a particular sample of text are applied to other samples of text; (c) the automatic reduction of size of an encoding set, and the prediction of the effects of such size reductions; (d) the applicability of text compression techniques to document descriptor files. The pertinent conclusions are: (a) the text segmentation procedure adopted in the earlier research appears to be very close to optimal; (b) there is significant degradation of performance when encoding texts other than the ones used to obtain the code; (c) it is possible to predict quantitatively the effects of size reduction on compression efficiency, this being independent of the way the reduction is made; (d) document descriptor files are compressible using the techniques described. In addition, research was conducted on the statistics of language and on rate distortion theory. Motivated by the results obtained on the problem of efficiency variability, we developed generative models for the statistics of taxonomies, that are shown to be consistent with the available data. The aim of the research on rate distortion theory is roughly to predict how much is lost by overcompressing the text. The results presented pertain to the basic theory, that is just beginning to be developed

A Study of the ARPA network Design and Performance by Robert E Kahn ( Book )
2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The document reports on the results of a study on the design and performance of the ARPA Network. Two important objectives of the study were to evaluate the ability of the network to handle heavy traffic loads and to increase the understanding of the relation among the number of packet buffers, the design of the system, and the system's performance. As one result of the study, several improved system algorithms for handling traffic were developed. (Author)

Oral history interview with Robert E. Kahn by Robert E Kahn ( )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The interview focuses on Kahn's role in the development of computer networking from 1967 through the early 1980s. Beginning with his work at Bolt, Beranek and Newman (BBN), Kahn discusses his involvement as the ARPANET proposal was being written, his decision to become active in the implementation of the network, and his role in the public demonstration of the ARPANET
