This book delivers the scientific and mathematical basis to treat and process knowledge as a quantifiable and dimensioned entity. It provides the units and measures for the value of information contained in a "body of knowledge" that can be measured, processed, enhanced, communicated and preserved. It provides a basis to evaluate the quantity of knowledge acquired by students at various levels and in different universities. The effect of time on the dynamics and flow of knowledge is tied to Internet knowledge banks and provides the basis for designing and building the next generation of novel machine to appear in society. This book ties the basic needs of all human beings to the modern machines that resolve such need based on Internet knowledge banks (KBs) distributed throughout nations and societies. The features of the Intelligent Internet are fully exploited to make a new generation of students and knowledge workers use the knowledge resources elegantly and optimally. It deals with topics and insight into the design and architecture of next-generation computing systems that deal with human and social problems. Processor and Internet technologies that have already revolutionized human lives form the subject matter and the focal point of this book. Information and knowledge on the Internet delivered by next-generation mobile networks form the technical core presented. Human thought processes and adjustments follow the solutions offered by machines. Extends the established practices and designs documented in computer systems to encompass the evolving knowledge processing field Provides an academic and industrial viewpoint of the concurrent dynamic changes in computer and communication industries Presents information for all perspectives, from managers, scientists and researchers Basic concepts can be applied to other disciplines and situations

This textbook offers an insightful study of the intelligent Internet-driven revolutionary and fundamental forces at work in society. Readers will have access to tools and techniques to mentor and monitor these forces rather than be driven by changes in Internet technology and flow of money. These submerged social and human forces form a powerful synergistic foursome web of (a) processor technology, (b) evolving wireless networks of the next generation, (c) the intelligent Internet, and (d) the motivation that drives individuals and corporations. In unison, the technological forces can tear human lives apart for the passive or provide a cohesive set of opportunities for the knowledgeable to lead and reap the rewards in the evolved knowledge society. The book also provides in-depth coverage of the functions embedded in modern processors and intelligent communication networks. It focuses on the convergence of the design of modern processor technologies with the switching and routing methodologies of global intelligent networks. Most of the concepts that are generic to the design of terra-flop parallel processors and the terra-bit fiber-optic networks are presented. This book also highlights recent developments in computer and processor technologies into the microscopic and macroscopic medical functions in hospitals and medical centers. Examination of the latest technologies and innovations presented from academic and industrial perspectives of the concurrent dynamic changes in computer and communication industries An up-to-date and coherent perspective of the developments in the wireless and fiber optic network technologies based on the experience and developments in the older copper, cable and hybrid fiber-coaxial communication systems Provides a set of novel concepts and methodologies for the innovators in industry
