Establishing Trust in Disconnected Environments

 Jeffrey Smith (Microsoft)

Grace Lewis

"One of the key features of the tactical cloudlets, like I said, is that they are discoverable. So a mobile device in the field is going to say, Are there any cloudlets around me? From a mobile-device perspective, I want to make sure that cloudlet is a friendly one. Is it a good cloudlet, right? And the other way around is also true. If I am a cloudlet and the mobile device says, I would like to connect to you, I need to know it is a good one."

10 At-Risk Emerging Technologies

 Jeffrey Smith (Microsoft)

Christopher King

"Although autonomous machines are 5-to-10 years away from mainstream adoption, the devices could be compromised through networked back-end servers that provide some of the automation, or through the robot itself, which is networked and communicates across the Internet to the manufacturer for diagnostic information and software updates."

Technical Debt as a Core Software Engineering Practice

 Jeffrey Smith (Microsoft)

Ipek Ozkaya

"It is actually very interesting, because when you are talking about something like technical debt, there is a positive and a negative aspect of it. The positive aspect is it resonates with everybody. It resonates with the manager who may not be as competent in understanding the details of the particular technology they have been developing in.  "
