Technical writing is a field essential to IT, in that it must clearly and accurately document and explain complicated concepts to others. Here we examine what it takes to be a technical writer and provide some resources.
Just like a human brain, cognitive computing can take input of any form, process it and provide meaningful results. However, this branch of artificial technology still needs much development before it can really equal the human mind.
The battlefield no longer has to be a physical space - war is now taking place in cyberspace. White hat and grey hat hackers combat terrorists online.
Software development has been given a boost by DevOps - development and operations teams working together. This increased teamwork allows for faster, more efficient development.
Microsoft Active Directory is inherent upon DNS, but that doesn't mean it requires Microsoft DNS, even though the vast majority of networks exclusively utilize Microsoft internal DNS services. The idea that AD requires Microsoft DNS is a myth.

Computer programming can be traced all the way back to 1843 - before computers even existed! Throughout the ages, computer programming has made great advances, and today artificial intelligence and deep learning are beginning to do the programming!
Natural language processing (NLP) allows a system to analyze social media posts, emails and a host of other data not in standardized formats. This can greatly improve sentiment analysis, leading to better understanding of customers.
The software-defined data center is here, but it's not quite what we imagined. Many have unrealistic expectations of SDDCs, so here we examine the technology and what it really means.
VMTurbo has become Turbonomic. This name change also signifies a shift toward autonomic computing - systems managing their own resources for optimum efficiency, with little or no human input required.
The concept of robotics is constantly changing, with new innovations pushing the boundaries of modern technology. However, there are several characteristics that define robots.
