A breakthrough in the storage of information: scientists have encoded the "Wizard of Oz" in DNA

Synthetic DNA as a storage medium of high density for many years interested in the digital futurists. The entire Internet can be encoded in the DNA sequence, which are placed inside Shoe boxes at the same time the DNA molecule is so stable that it can be stored for tens or even hundreds of thousands of years. For example, in 2013, scientists sequenced the entire genome of a fossil horse older than 700 000 years.


The future of data centers

Given that by 2025 it is expected 175 zettabytes of data, data centers will continue to play a critical role in receiving, calculating, storing, and managing information.


Vladimir Kitov: "it is Impossible to understand how scientists-pioneers foresaw the universal computerization in the 50's!"

Vladimir Kitov working with it more than half a century, led the team of programmers in the main computer center of Ministry of the USSR and Central research Institute "Monolith", led the development of software for the international system of space rescue, the COSPAS-SARSAT and the creation of a multi-terminal monitor for UCS. He worked as top Manager in companies DEC, SIEMENS, Technoserv, IBS, Fujitsu, wrote a textbook on system programming and several books, and now deals with the history of computer science.
