Fletcher Jones and Roy Nutt are the two men who founded the Computer Sciences Corporation, also known as the CSC. It was created in April 1959 with its first location being built in Los Angeles. In the early stages of the company’s development they formed programs that were used to assemble and compile computer software. Even in Computer Sciences Corporation’s first few years they were already partnering with numerous companies.Their programs were fundamental for the growth of many major computer manufacturers including NASA, Honeywell, and IBM.

In the next decade the company would only improve and grow. Their expertise and seeming monopoly on the market helped earn them a seat in the both finance and defense industries. Since the mid 1990s Computer Sciences Corporation has held a spot as Fortune 500 Company. In 2008 the company moved their corporate headquarters from El Segundo, California to Annandale, Virginia. Recently, the company has announced that they are going to divide their assets into commercial, public, and international sectors.

Product recognition is a technology that allows you to browse for content without using energy to type out texts. The only thing that is needed in this case is an application that is customized well to offer ability to recognize images and to send information about the image to internet servers. The process works uniquely to offer results within seconds. What happens is that you scan the object you want to search with the help of your phone camera. This is after enabling an application that helps you to search for what you need by taking its image.
This technology allows you to have easy time finding what you want because the results that are submitted while searching match exactly with the item you are looking for. For instance, when you want to buy a blue bag, you will get the exact design as you have at your disposal. The search also includes options where you can specify which color you would like to get. Most online shopping stores have created applications that allow buyers to easily access products on their sites. Unlike typing your searches, you will not be directed to sites that do not offer sufficient information about what you are looking for.
Speed is also another advantage you will get to enjoy while using the image recognition technology. The application submits search results within seconds, so you will not need to wait for longer hours to receive feedback. This is one of the motivations that will make buyers to love the application. As long as your connection is strong, you will not have difficult time accessing the items you need online.
Getting the application to your phone is not expensive. Most online stores have created the application for their users to download for free. Remember the application is installed on your phone and its portability makes it the best option while out. This is one of the fastest options when shopping because specific websites will allow you to search for the item you need on their website. Browsing freehand without specifying what you need may take longer to identify the right product. Product recognition changes everything making your online experience unique.
Mostly everyone has been a victim of some type of criminal activity. We’re not talking about assault or other types of violence here. We’re talking virtual. Cybercrime affects millions of people every year and saps away our time too. If your identity hasn’t been stolen, then maybe someone has tried to make charges on your bank account without your knowledge.
It’s all very unnerving and in 2014 there were 70,000 cybersecurity incidents, a new record. In the past, we’ve trusted the government to take on this colossal threat, but due to a recent report and increasing cyber threats, they may not be up to the task. A Pew Research Center survey found that less than a quarter of Americans seriously trust our government to get things done in the right way.
Brad Reifler wonders: What kind of computer system do you think the government uses? Maybe something more advanced than what we’ve seen? You may be surprised to know that the government still uses Windows XP, and that’s not even the worst part. The US Navy pays Microsoft 9 million dollars a year just to use this outdated system. So why can’t the government shape up? According to this report, the government wants a standard system, and Windows XP has gotten the job done in the past. On top of that, making a technology shift to something newer may cost them millions, perhaps even more.
Though the cost is high, don’t you think it may be worth the extra effort to protect their citizens?
