Information Handled by a Computer
• Instructions/machine instructions
 Govern the transfer of information within a computer as well
as between the computer and its I/O devices
 Specify the arithmetic and logic operations to be performed
 Program
• Data
 Used as operands by the instructions
 Source program
• Encoded in binary code – 0 and 1

main memory  Secondary storage – larger and cheaper . Memory Unit • Store programs and data • Two classes of storage  Primary storage  Fast  Programs must be stored in memory while they are being executed  Large number of semiconductor storage cells  Processed in words  Address  RAM and memory access time  Memory hierarchy – cache.

• Registers • Fast control of ALU . • Load the operands into memory – bring them to the processor – perform operation in ALU – store the result back to memory or retain in the processor. Arithmetic and Logic Unit (ALU) • Most computer operations are executed in ALU of the processor.

Hammad Waseem 16 . M. System Software • System Software is set of programs to control and manage the operations of a computer hardware. • It consists of the basic operations as follows: – Saving data on disk – Making computer to work for us – Printing a document etc. • It enables application programs to execute properly.

Examples • Examples of System Software's are: – Operating Systems – Utility Programs – Device Drivers M. Hammad Waseem 17 .

Operating System (OS)
• An operating system (OS) is a collection
of software that manages computer
hardware resources and provides
common services for computer
• The operating system is a vital component of
the system software in a computer system.
• Application programs usually require an
operating system to function.

The multi- tasking features of these OSs have greatly increased the productivity of people in the large variety of jobs because they can accomplish in less time. life support system. The disadvantages of Single-user/multitasking operating system is the increased size. Single-user/multitasking operating system: A Single-user/multitasking operating system is one that allows a Single user to perform two or more functions at once. 2. complexity to support multitasking. MS-DOS is one example of a single tasking OS.

The advantage of these operating system is that they can be managed by simply making changes to one server rather than to many desktop computer. Multi-user/multitasking operating system:  A Multi-user/multitasking operating system is an operating system that allows multiple users to use programs that are simultaneously running on a single network server. Ex. all or most of the computing occurs at the server. In a Multi-user/multitasking operating system environment.UNIX. and mainframe operating system such as MVS.4. VMS. A disadvantages is that if the network connection to the server is Broken. the user can not do any work in the application of server. .

• More so because the term CLOUD is intriguing and some people even wonder how do clouds that rain can even remotely be used in Computing. and many are curious to know what cloud computing is and how it works. Cloud Computing • Cloud computing is currently the buzzword in IT industry. .

Azure. What is Cloud Computing? • Cloud Computing can be defined as delivering computing power( CPU. Network Speeds. Google Cloud . • Example: AWS. Storage OS software) a service over a network (usually on the internet) rather than physically having the computing resources at the customer location. RAM.






• For them Cloud Computing is a cheaper solution. data storage has become a priority in all fields. • Perhaps its efficiency in storing data. It requires a strong IT support and a storage hub. computation and less maintenance cost has succeeded to attract even bigger businesses as well . • Large and small scale businesses today thrive on their data & they spent a huge amount of money to maintain this data. • Not all businesses can afford high cost of in-house IT infrastructure and back up support services. Why Cloud Computing? • With increase in computer and Mobile user’s.















Characteristic of Cloud Computing • Lower IT infrastructure and computer costs for users • Improved performance • Fewer Maintenance issues • Instant software updates • Improved compatibility between Operating systems • Backup and recovery • Performance and Scalability • Increased storage capacity • Increase data safety .

Types of Clouds .

Where the computing resources can be governed. computing resources are deployed for one particular organization. an academic or business organization. computing resources are provided for a community and organizations. This method is more used for intra-business interactions. This deployment method is called hybrid cloud as the computing resources are bound together by different clouds.B2B (Business to Business) private cloud or B2C ( Business to Consumer) public . • Hybrid Cloud: This type of cloud can be used for both type of interactions . . governed and operated by government. • Public Cloud: This type of cloud is used usually for B2C (Business to Consumer) type interactions.• Private Cloud: Here. • Community Cloud: Here. Here the computing resource is owned. owned and operated by the same organization.



What is Cloud Computing Architecture? .

Cloud Computing Architecture • Cloud computing comprises of two components front end and back end. • It comprise of interfaces and applications that are required to access the cloud computing platform. • Front end consist client part of cloud computing system. .

it comprises of the resources that are required for cloud computing services. • It consists of virtual machines. data storage. It is under providers control. security mechanism etc. Cloud Computing Architecture • While back end refers to the cloud itself. . servers.

• Data is never stored in one place only and in case one unit fails the other will take over automatically. . while another important component is algorithm for resource allocation. • The user disk space is allocated on the distributed file system. Cloud Computing Architecture • Cloud computing distributes the file system that spreads over multiple hard disks and machines.

In 1997. Deep Thought was designed at Carnegie Mellon University and IBM. This represented the first time that a machine had defeated the top human chess player. IBM came back with an improved version of Deep Blue that finally defeated Kasparov in a six game match. Vladimir Kramnik... Can a Computer Do a Lawyer's Job? • IF ROBOTS CAN PLAY CHESS. • In 1996. Garry Kasparov. It seems highly likely that. lost a match against a German software program called Deep Fritz. running on virtually any cheap laptop computer. Again Kasparov defeated the computer. • Since then. computer chess has continued to progress. will be able to defeat the best chess players in the world. the world chess champion faced off against a special computer called Deep Thought. a program like Deep Fritz. In 2006. Kasparov easily defeated the machine in a two game match. the new world chess champion. Deep Fritz is a program that runs on a computer using two standard Intel processors. While IBM's Deep Blue was a completely custom computer about the size of a refrigerator. Kasparov faced a new computer developed by IBM called Deep Blue. in the near future. • In 1989. .

But the question for us here is: will that protect us from brute force algorithms that can do our . It is using a brute force algorithm. The computer's advantage arises not from the fact that it is genuinely smart. And therefore it becomes to us something mysterious and especially creative. • Who can say what is going on in a human chess master's head when he or she plays a match? • We simply don't know. • Yet. but because it is almost unimaginably fast. • The computer is simply calculating through millions of different possible moves and then picking the best one. however. we know exactly what is happening. Could a computer formulate a strategy for an important legal case? • When we think of what it takes for a human being to be a world chess champion. creativity is a trait that we are very reluctant to ascribe to a machine--even if that machine can beat a human at chess. • In the case of the computer. degree of creativity--at least within the confines of a highly defined set of rules. • It's natural for us to give this brute force accomplishment a lower status than the creativity and precise thinking exhibited by an exceptional human being.

They research case law. They suggest possible strategies and legal arguments for new cases that come to their firms. go into a courtroom. CAN THEY PRACTICE LAW? • If you agree that the game of chess requires creativity within a set of defined rules. • These attorneys are employed in the areas of legal research and contracts. then could not something similar be said about the field of law? • Currently there are jobs in the United States for many thousands of lawyers who rarely. and write briefs which summarize relevant court cases and legal strategies from the past.

• there are already teams of lawyers who specialize in researching case in the United States. .

and then eventually evolve into a full automation solution. evaluate and summarize information. • We can expect that such smart algorithms will increasingly be used in the field of legal research. . What about automation? • Can a computer do the lawyer's job? • One of the primary research areas in artificial intelligence has focused on creating "smart" algorithms that can quickly search. • We see the fruition of this body of research every time we use Google or any other advanced Internet search engine. • The software may start out as a productivity tool to make the lawyer's job easier.

but as we saw in the case of chess. • As I pointed out with the radiologist automating even a portion of the lawyer's job will quickly result in fewer attorneys on the payroll. But would that matter to our lawyer's employer? • . finding and summarizing relevant case law would be a likely target for an initial effort. If a computer can evaluate millions of possible chess moves. then why can it not also iterate through every known legal argument since the days when Cicero held forth in the Roman Forum? Would this be a "lesser" form of legal creativity? Perhaps it would. • For example. • What about the more advanced or creative aspects of the lawyer's job? • Could a computer formulate a strategy for an important legal case? • For the time being. it is easier to automate some parts of the lawyer's job than others. this may be a challenge.• Obviously. a brute force algorithm may ultimately prevail.

which are a special type of computer that is built upon a model of the human brain. we can probably expect some important advances in this area. . it is by no means true that this is the only approach being taken in the field. • In the future. especially as the engineers who design neural nets work more closely with scientists who are uncovering the secrets of how our brains work. • A very important area of study revolves around the idea of neural nets. HUMANIZING THE ROBOT MIND • Although the practical applications of artificial intelligence have so far emphasized brute force solutions. • Neural nets are currently being used in areas such as visual pattern recognition.
