Future Network Computer Systems is the name of the first book of its kind to come out in over 30 years. It was written by William J. Fischer, who served as a member of both the National Academy of Engineering and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) in addition to a professor at Harvard University, and was previously the Director of Research for the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and a member of the National Academy of Science.
In Future Network Computer Systems, Dr. Fischer makes it clear that the world of IT will never be completely computerized. He also makes it clear that we will have to use some sort of physical computer, whether it is an entire desktop to a laptop or a personal computer, in order to perform everyday tasks. However, he also stresses the need to make sure that the hardware, software and peripherals are all compatible with one another.
Dr. Fischer points out that while there have been many technological advances since the beginning of the 20th century, there are still many challenges to overcome, and these include the fact that in some industries, such as transportation, the need for computer networks has grown tremendously. This is due to the fact that more people are now using automobiles than ever before, and this means that the need for accurate transportation information can only increase. But in other areas, such as aerospace and even some healthcare industries, the need for precise and reliable information can be met through a network. With advances in manufacturing technology, the need for accurate supply chain information can also be fulfilled, as factories now process much more complex products and components than they ever did in the past.
With Future Network Computer Systems, Dr. Fischer lays out a variety of topics that can be addressed through the development of computer networks. He starts with the history of the development of computers and how they were created, going into what makes them tick, and finally exploring how they can best be used in the modern world.
Dr. Fischer then addresses the issue of developing new software technologies. There have been several major breakthroughs in this area of research in recent years, but this book points out that there is still a lot to learn and understand about the different areas of the subject. He discusses the different types of software, from desktop publishing software to the creation of database software and even the development of the internet. He also goes into some of the reasons why it’s important to ensure compatibility between software systems and why not being able to work together will hurt the entire industry.
Dr. Fischer then goes into a look at the future of networking and the role that it will play in the world of tomorrow. In particular, he delves into what kind of networks will exist, what kinds of devices will be used and how they will communicate, what forms will be needed in order to maintain that compatibility, and how they will work together, how networks will be protected against cyber-attacks, and even where the boundaries will be drawn in order to ensure that computers and information can still be shared. The book closes by discussing some of the best practices that will need to be followed in order to ensure the continued evolution of the computer industry.
Because Future Network Computer Systems is so much more in depth than other books on the topic, it is important that the book is read cover to cover. If you’ve never read anything like it before, I would strongly recommend that you pick up a copy. I have yet to find a book that tackles the whole subject in such detail.
Overall, I found that reading Future Network Computer Systems to be a fascinating read, as it tackles the issues of how the future of network technology will impact the world. For anyone that has a basic knowledge of computers, the information presented is very interesting, and for those that have no experience of networking at all, Dr. Fischer’s explanation of the history of the development of computers can really help point the way forward.
