Headline May 27, 2015/ ''' INNOVATION BY THE FOUNTAIN : !WOW! '''


!WOW! '''

ONE GOOD FLAG to flutter. One great company to stop by and take a very close look  :  Affirmed Networks.

Chairman and CEO Hassan Ahmed is a Ph.D in Electrical Engineering from Stanford, and he is also a regular guest lecturer at MIT. But for you all, what should be of great interest is, that he is an innovator in the making.

Watch him, and watch   Affirmed Networks   get builtup  into a billion dollar company. Mariam,Rabo,Haider, Hussain, Shahzaib Khan,  Faizan, Mustafa, Sannan, Zaeem, Hazeem ought to take note.

Let's hope that we will soon have this great man, Dr.Hassan Ahmed, join us on   !WOW!.

THE RACE TO make the first   ''quantum computer''  is becoming as important as the race  75 years ago to get the first nuke.

It could change the balance of power in politics and business forever, yet again.

Quantum computers have long been theoretically possible but a kind of futuristic fantasy, like  Interstellar style worm hole travel or -zero-calorie Hershey Bars.

There is always been a quest for one. Now breakthroughs are coming faster, and scientists say that we are just  15 to 20 years away from the fully functional, programmable  quantum computers.

Those days are long gone. Today, laments Mark Muro of the Brookings Institution, investment in innovation has been Balkanized, slit between government-finanaced   basic research-

Squeezed by skimpy budgets, and a corporate  R&D  effort constrained its focus on the very short term.

What happened? The researchers at Duke and East Anglia reject the argument that tightening regulations have pushed companies to cut their research budgets. Corporate investment in basic research, they note, is waning in Europe, too.

They also doubt that science gas somehow become less valuable, an argument proposed by prominent economists like Robert Gordon of Northwestern University.

Citations of recent scientific research are as common in corporate patents today as they were in the 1980s, suggesting science remains critical to companies innovation    .

Still, something has clearly changed. Investors may value corporate patents as much as ever, but the stock market places a lower valuation on original research than it did three decades ago.

Corporate executives, their compensation tied overwhelmingly to short-term gains in the market value of their companies, may be responding accordingly.

Harassed by international competition in our more cutthroat era, companies have less incentive to create knowledge that may or may not be profitable. Instead they are encouraged to patent more intensely, to protect what profitable knowledge they already have.

Can  Innovation survive  this realignment? Ultimately a dearth of research threatens productivity growth, which slowed sharply over the last decade to less than half the average of the previous 10 years.

It leaves young scientists in the lurch, without projects on which to apply their knowledge. It discourages young American students from pursuing scientific careers.

The Developing world, or maybe even that world, that has shaken out of gross poverty, ought to stop and ponder. Progress, a real one, without any nation's ability to Innovate, would be very hard if not impossible.

The Quantum technology, will make the microprocessor in your Laptop seem as sophisticated as a booger.

The silicon based technology inside today's computers, which engineers have constantly made faster and cheaper for five decades is running out of ways to get better.

Quantum computers will herald, well, a Quantum leap   -like riding a horse one day and getting into a fighter jet the next.

"These machines will be millions millions of time more powerful today's fastest supercomputers, solving problems that now elude like dead on weather predictions or modeling protein molecules for medical research.

The Honour and Serving of the  ''operational research on Innovation"  continues. Thank you for reading, and maybe learning. And don't miss the following one.

With respectful dedication to the Students of the world. See Ya all on !WOW!  -the World Students Society Computers-Internet-Wireless:

''' Quantum For !WOW! '''

'''Good Night and God Bless
