The School of Emerging Technologies (SET) at Towson University works to advance interdisciplinary and collaborative educational and research programs that address the development, application, implications and ramifications of emerging technologies. Thus, saving time directly translates into saving money and everyone likes to save money, especially companies seeking to turn a higher profit. These companies are excited by the speed and bandwidth capacity offered by CodecSys but they know their customers will be almost as excited at being able to upgrade those servers with a simple software upgrade in an industry filled with hardware based servers that need to be discarded to upgrade to the next model. With a platform-neutral interfacing and communication mechanism and a wide infrastructure support in terms of servers and development environments, Web services offer the benefits of loose coupling, ease of integration and of accessibility.
The federal government’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recognized this need and responded by creating the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE). In sectors such as construction or utilities, with large sites and assets to manage, equipping drones with pattern recognition technology to help identify locations that may require closer human inspection is just one potential application. What type of technology will be the ipod, but what will be the best way to implement the ipods in the classroom.
Supporting this assertion that technology rekindles past themes, Kevin Kelly contends, in his video The Next 5,000 Days of the Web, that the World Wide Web will change in three important ways: embodiment, restructuring, and codependency. By simply looking at substitutes, it is often easy to find the industries most likely to be impacted by a new technology. Dr. David Thornburg (2009) discussed how the force called rhymes of history demonstrated how patterns in society rekindled from the past are usually reinvented through technology to meet current needs.
First and foremost, managers must take it upon themselves to become proactive by keeping abreast of emerging trends and understanding them not only from a technical standpoint, but evaluating them from a higher-level, strategic standpoint. This document summarises findings from interviews with 11 leading companies who are each exploring an emerging theme or trend that will shape the future relationship between the nation and the sea. The line between business innovation and technology driven disruption is more blurred than ever.
The issue is that each of the companies doing this research keep the data in a different format (sound like the issues we have heard about with medical records?). According to a study by RAND Health performed in 2005, the US health care system could save more than $81 billion a year if most healthcare providers were to adopt the technology. Second Life is used as disruptive technology because it changes the method of processing things.
