CSE at HU, Jerusalem
re coming from (1994 and earlier
93 wireless, pen, and speech infancy
96 the Web takes flight
panels to structure a range of topics
Models, system structure, file systems, application frameworks
Wiring the campus for wireless
Will anyone make money in mobile computing?
Networks, protocols, and exploiting the Web
Privacy and anonymity
The hot clients: PARC TABs, Newton+InfoTAC+ARDIS
Where will we be in 5 years?
The Five Year Outlook (in 1994)
Five teams brainstormed and reported back:
PDAs will make the world paperless
Entertainment and advertising will pay for all of it
Vertical apps and the mobile infrastructure will be in place
Global infrastructure deployed and the killer app has been
found (but they didn
t say what it was)
One theory was that web access will be the killer app
Role of entertainment
Is mobile just a variant of distributed computing
What clients will be hot next (unresolved)
Stylus, pen, and speech input
Critical for internationalization as well as for mobility
The English (PC) keyboard is a limiting factor, while cellphones
(speech input, right?) are the fastest
growing computing appliance.
The revolution in digital cameras has now happened
Social and legal issues will be as important as communications
infrastructure in gating/accelerating progress
What happened to privacy?
Copyright and the role of the entertainment industries
include discussion of these in WMCSA
From the client to the cloud
Power will always be holding us back
has inherent appeal, if it also solves power
But how to overcome introduction obstacles?
High bandwidth up
loading has arrived
File transfer, not necessarily interaction
Storage is ready to revolutionize client capabilities
s web primitives
Why was this necessary?
The smart watch, triumph of miniaturization, needs connectivity for
Opportunities to optimize at the lowest levels
Payoff in power and performance
Opportunities to organize communications better
Payoff in bandwidth savings
Opportunities to make applications more
understandable and manageable
make URLs and URNs work for us?
maybe someone will actually use them
Protocols and networks
will it happen?
Even with $7 chips now available, it will take a long time
To succeed, it needs to not be PC
Is Internet II and IPv6 going to solve a whole class
I think we will hear a great deal more about QoS and
reservation schemes. Present talks just tip of
Service and application enablers
Is this just the universal personal phone number?
s open, not just automated Ernestine
But it needs a lot:
Negotiation between the sender and receiver
Where are the white pages?
Note: the culprits confessed that these are not yet in use
Will they graduate before addiction occurs?
t forget the
Industrial applications of wearables, and ubiquitous
computing in the bio lab are pulling very hard.
Note that the highest leverage applications are multimodal
HCI issues are surprises
Unexpected behavior is hard to recover from
Collective behavior may also surprise us
Ensure that the base function is what the user wants
to sign up; the
is an extra incentive
s get quantitative about usability and quality
Questions for the next WMCSA
Transcoder and proxy capabilities
Can system structure make major reductions in
Feeding back the cost of surprise into the design
tools and building blocks
Impact of recognition technology in deriving context
and reacting to content
Apps, apps, apps
What are we learning from the motivated, but non
