In the last few years, the search for radically new approaches to software engineering has witnessed a great momentum. These efforts are well justified by the troubling state of present day computer science. Software engineering practices based on design-time architectural composition (the only assessed way of doing software engineering so far), lead to brittle and fragile systems, unable to gracefully cope with reconfiguration and faults.

Computer Security: Chapter 4 - Introduction to Trust in Computing presents about Trust in Social & Computing Systems, Selected Trust Characteristics, Selected Research Issues in Trust, Avoiding Traps of Trust Complexity, Trust and Privacy, Trust & Pervasive Computing.
Hardware and Computer Organization is a practical introduction to the architecture of modern microprocessors for students and professional alike. It is designed to take practicing professionals "under the hood” of a PC and provide them with an understanding of the basics of the complex machine that has become such a pervasive part of our everyday life. It clearly explains how hardware and software cooperatively interact to accomplish real-world tasks.
The Computer Revolution:
Progress in computer technology:
Underpinned by Moore’s Law.
Makes novel applications feasible:
Computers in automobiles,
Human genome project,
World Wide Web,
Computers are pervasive.
Computational Grids  have emerged as a distributed computing infrastructure for providing pervasive, ubiquitous access to a diverse set of resources ranging from highperformance computers (HPC), tertiary storage systems, large-scale visualization systems, expensive and unique instruments including telescopes and accelerators. One of the primary motivations for building Grids is to enable large-scale scientiﬁc research projects to better utilize distributed, heterogeneous resources to solve a particular problem or set of problems....
Computer Security: Chapter 5 - Security Paradigms and Pervasive Trust Paradigm provides about Old security paradigms (OSPs) (Failures of OSPs, Example of enhancing OSP), Defining new security paradigms (NSPs) (Challenges and requirements for NSPs, Review and examples of existing security paradigms, New Paradigm).
Ebook "E-textiles: The intersection of computation and traditional textiles" content presentation: Introduction, defining pervasive concepts, current and future technologies for wearables and e-textiles, related work, context and functionality of wearables and e-textiles, design and implementation, methodology, survey and feedback.
Even as recently as five years ago, many computer industry experts would never have guessed how pervasive and “business critical” electronic messaging would eventually become. The degree to which some information technology professionals are surprised by the pervasive nature of today’s electronic mails systems is merely amusing to those of us that have had an e-mail address for more than 20 years.
During the early years of microprocessor technology, there were few engineers with education and experience in the application of microprocessor technology.Now that microprocessors and microcontrollers have become pervasive in many types of equipment, it has become almost a requirement that many technical people have the ability to use them. Today the microprocessor and the microcontroller have become two of the most powerful tools available to the scientist and
Growth naturally stimulates change, and CCTV technology has
been no exception. A system that once merely required cameras,
cabling, and video monitors has now become a complex electronic
confi guration of equipment intertwined with both computer and
telecommunications technologies. This dramatic change is directly
related to the introduction of digital technology. Why do we need
to understand how digital technology works, and what does it
have to do with the future of security? It’s simple—the newest
revolution in technology is pervasive computing.
The field of information and communication technologies continues to evolve and
grow in both the research and the practical domains. However, energy efficiency is an
aspect in communication technologies that until recently was only considered for
embedded, mobile or handheld battery constraint devices.
Pervasive computing aims at availability and invisibility. On the one hand, pervasive computing can be defined as availability of software applications and information anywhere and anytime. On the other hand, pervasive computing also means that computers are hidden in numerous so-called information appliances that we use in our day-to-day lives [4, 29, 30]. Personal digital assistants (PDAs) and cell phones are the first widely available and used pervasive computing devices. Next-generation devices are being designed....
In 1991, Mark Weiser described his vision of an emerging world of pervasive,
embedded computation. He predicted “a physical world that is richly and invisibly
interwoven with sensors, actuators, displays, and computational elements, embedded
seamlessly in the everyday objects of our lives and connected through a continuous
Possibly nothing in Kant’s philosophy has left more room for confusion and debate than his
writings on the pure intuition of space. In no small part this is due to Kant’s aggravatingly brief
discussion of what was nothing less than a radical and revolutionary idea in philosophy. But in
part it is also due to a pervasive tendency to admix the idea of space with that of geometry, and to
a seeming obviousness of what is meant by the term “space.” For most of us, “space” taken as an
object means “physical space,” and there would seem to...
If we are to realize the everyday benefits promised by pervasive computing and context-
aware applications, we must first develop the foundation systems that will make those
applications easy to develop, to deploy, and to maintain. We must develop systems that
provide the necessary contextual information with accuracy, robustness, and scalability. We
must also address the technical challenges of engineering these systems for use by humans
and mobile devices in indoor environments.
Sensor networks and pervasive computing systems intimately
combine computation, communication and interactions with the physical
world, thus increasing the complexity of the development effort, violating
communication protocol layering, and making traditional network
diagnostics and debugging less effective at catching problems. Tighter
coupling between communication, computation, and interaction with the
physical world is likely to be an increasing trend in emerging edge networks
and pervasive systems.
