The realization that the use of components off the shelf (COTS) could reduce costs sparked the evolution of the massive parallel computing systems available today. The main problem with such systems is the development of suitable operating systems, algorithms and application software that can utilise the potential processing power of large numbers of processors. As a result, systems comprising millions of processors are still limited in the applications they can efficiently solve. Two alternative paradigms that may offer a solution to this problem are Quantum Computers (QC) and Brain Inspired Computers (BIC). This book presents papers from the 14th edition of the biennial international conference on High Performance Computing - From Clouds and Big Data to Exascale and Beyond, held in Cetraro, Italy, from 2 - 6 July 2018. It is divided into 4 sections covering data science, quantum computing, high-performance computing, and applications. The papers presented during the workshop covered a wide spectrum of topics on new developments in the rapidly evolving supercomputing field – including QC and BIC – and a selection of contributions presented at the workshop are included in this volume. In addition, two papers presented at a workshop on Brain Inspired Computing in 2017 and an overview of work related to data science executed by a number of universities in the USA, parts of which were presented at the 2018 and previous workshops, are also included. The book will be of interest to all those whose work involves high-performance computing.

This book explores the use of Blockchain and smart contract technologies to develop new ways to finance independent films and digital media worldwide. Using case studies of Alibaba and in-depth, on-set observation of a Sino-US coproduction, as well as research collected from urban China, Hong Kong, Europe, and the USA, Online Film Production in China Using Blockchain and Smart Contracts explores new digital platforms and what this means for the international production of creative works. This research assesses the change in media consciousness from young urban audiences, their emergence as a potential participative and creative community within dis-intermediated, decentralised and distributed crowdfunding and crowdsourcing models. This research proposes solutions on how these young emerging local creative talents can be identified and nurtured early on, particularly those who now produce creative and artistic audiovisual content whether these works are related to film, Virtual Reality (VR), video game, graphic novels, or music. Ultimately, a new media content finance and production platform implementing blockchain is proposed to bring transparency in the film sector and open doors to emerging artists in digital media. Appropriate for both professionals and academics in the film industry as well as computer science.

Seminar paper from the year 2019 in the subject Business economics - Operations Research, grade: 1,8, Reutlingen University, language: English, abstract: This paper is a case study about Alibaba entering the US e-comerce market. Can Alibaba make large-scale sustainable success in the American e-commerce market? Or is the industry not attractive and the market saturated? Alibaba provides technology, infrastructure and marketing to help merchants, brands and businesses to leverage the power of new technology to engage with their customers. The Alibaba Group was founded in 1999 by Jack Ma and 17 other people. Alibaba was originally founded as a B2B e-commerce portal to connect Chinese manufacturers with overseas buyers. Nowadays, Alibaba ranks in the Top Ten companies in terms of market value. Most of the credit goes to Ma himself, because he utilized the first-mover advantage and successfully planned entrepreneurial growth and corporate initiatives. Looking back, Ma has traveled more than 800 hours to dozens of countries to meet business leaders and state representatives to convince them of Alibaba ́s aim: to let small and medium businesses (SMEs) from all parts of the world trade freely and securely on Alibaba ́s platforms. The company ́s vision is to achieve $1 trillion in gross merchandise by 2020 and to serve two billion customers by 2036. To achieve this, global operations are key and experts propose: “globalization is better done now than later”. Alibaba is currently experiencing high competitive pressure in China and will need to conquer new territories to continue on current trajectory. Needless to say, entry into the US market will not only be difficult, but also require premium strategic decisions with little to no room for errors.
