1 INTRODUCTION For the last decade, cloud computing has proved to be a prominent method of acquiring or provisioning IT resources for applications whose demand is variable with time (Malawski et al., 2015). Further, it also helps new start‐ups and many organizations not to worry about their IT capital investment. However, cloud computing does impose an issue with the latency‐sensitive application because cloud resources are located far away from the data generating devices (Mahmud et al., 2018). A new computing paradigm known as fog computing was introduced by Cisco in 2012, aiming to resolve the latency issue by providing IT resources physically close to the data generating devices. Fog computing is an extension of cloud computing, not its replacement, since the IT resources provided by fog computing are not that powerful,...

Air Force partners with quantum computing firm QC Ware on research project

1619528444940
U.S. Air Force researchers are partnering with a quantum computing company to use its machine learning algorithms, Axios has learned.Why it matters: Quantum is the next generation of computing, and its growing adoption by the military shows the progress of the technology as it gradually moves out of the lab and into the real world.Driving the news: Later this morning the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) — its technological development wing — will announce a partnership with the quantum computing software company QC Ware to harness its algorithms to better surveil unmanned aircraft.QC Ware will design and deliver quantum algorithms that are capable of clustering and classifying the flight plans of objects many times faster than the classical machine learning algorithms that are currently used for the job.Using currently available quantum...
