AIR-BORNE INTERNET

The word on just about every Internet user's lips these days is "broadband." We have so
much more data to send and download today, including audio files, video files and photos, that
it's clogging our wimpy modems. Many Internet users are switching to cable modems and digital
subscriber lines (DSLs) to increase their bandwidth. There's also a new type of service being
developed that will take broadband into the air. In this paper, we'll learn about the future of the
Airborne Internet. We'll take a look at the networks in development, the aircraft and how
consumers may use this technology.
Land-based lines are limited physically in how much data they can deliver because of the
diameter of the cable or phone line. In an airborne Internet, there is no such physical limitation,
enabling a broader capacity.
The airborne Internet will function much like satellite-based Internet access, but without
the time delay. The airborne Internet will actually be used to compliment the satellite and
ground-based networks, not replace them. These airborne networks will overcome the last-mile
barriers facing conventional Internet access options.
This paper addresses some of the trends and issues involved in developing an Airborne
Internet capable of achieving this goal. Understanding relationships between these trends and
issues and the objectives and functional requirements of the program will allow various
participants in this complex program to keep activities in proper perspective. The all-round
development and improvement are the key areas of research work performed in this paper.

HADOOP

Hadoop is a free, Java-based programming framework that supports the processing of


large data sets in a distributed computing environment. It is part of the Apache project sponsored
by the Apache Software Foundation.

A distributed file system (DFS) facilitates rapid data transfer rates among nodes and
allows the system to continue operating uninterrupted in case of a node failure. The risk of
catastrophic system failure is low, even if a significant number of nodes become inoperative.

The Hadoop framework is used by major players including Google, Yahoo and IBM,
largely for applications involving search engines and advertising. The preferred operating
systems are Windows and Linux but Hadoop can also work with BSD and OS X. Hadoop was
originally the name of a stuffed toy elephant belonging to a child of the framework's creator,
Doug Cutting.

PROJECT OXYGEN

Project Oxygen is a proposed global Super-Internet which is based on a complex network


of undersea fiber optic cables linking 174 countries at 264 landing points (SAIC). The idea of the
project is to make computers human-centered and responsive to human needs rather than having
people depending on expensive machines as happens now. In the plan, no one would need their
own personal devices such as cell phones and hand-held computers because these devices would
be available everywhere for anyone to use. They would all be connected to a central data base
where everyone's data would be stored. As people interact with these devices, the devices will
recognize the person and respond to their particular needs and to their own databases. They will
maintain personal privacy by being able to respond to the individual and only accessing their
information bases using video and audio recognition technology. The system will help automate
most routine tasks and there will be voice recognition systems so typing in data will no longer be
necessary
This system no doubt has many advantages some of them are ease of use, personalized data
storage and access, security systems, elimination of the need to carry around communication
devices, and the ability to work anywhere because of the pervasiveness of the system, it is also a
little frightening to think of the abuses that could take place through such a system. If this system
comes to work a lot of time and efforts would be saved which would help us to do different work
efficiently.
This seminar report contains the brief description about the Project Oxygen its use to
human kind and various applications which would change the future world of computing as it is
today.

MULTI TOUCH

Recently, interactive surfaces with multi-touch sensors based on frustrated total internal
reflection (FTIR) have seen increased attention in research and commerce. In this paper, we
present a new method of gathering data about the users gestures on an interactive table beyond
simple binary touch information.
In addition to the infrared light emitters at the rim of the interaction surface, a second
infrared light source is placed above an interactive table to create shadows of hands and arms. By
tracking these shadows with the same rear-mounted camera, several consecutive and disjoint
surface contacts can be traced back to the same user, thereby enabling new interaction
techniques.
