Overview Business value proposition When selecting a new computer system for any performance-critical task, it is essential to have some clear, consistent, and objective measurement of the computing power of each of the candidate systems. 88 GHz) does not provide a reliable measurement of performance. One kind of processor may be able to do more in a single clock cycle than another, and a poorly designed motherboard or slow memory can ruin a nominally fast processor. A Benchmark is a purpose-built application, or a predetermined sequence of operations to be performed by an existing application, designed to get an accurate picture of the speed of the computer as a whole while it is performing exactly the kinds of tasks that it will be used for.
For example, the development of expert ‘‘knowledgebased” systems may now be carried out through mature established commercial applications and supported through wellresearched development models and testing techniques. Artiﬁcial intelligence tends to refer to methods that are still in the research arena, and when the technology becomes mature it merges into the general set of techniques available to software engineers. Summary of potentially negative issues The newer techniques and applications available through this branch of computer science are advanced in nature and require specialized knowledge to design, implement, and test.
Editing operations, in which parts of a recording are cut out and pasted together in a different order, removing any audible discontinuities, are also easily performed. Scrambling, or audio encryption, is also much simpliﬁed after digitization. Software for Digital signal processing is widely available for most computing platforms, and is relatively easy to implement for a software engineer with some knowledge of the mathematics of Fourier transforms. Digitized audio signals stored as is, just as a sequence of numbers directly representing measurements of the sound pressure, are known as WAV or Wave ﬁles, although the correct technical term is PCM or Pulse code modulation.
