 New term to me.  As I understand it is here today. Further implications?  Great efficiency or just less security?

 Hyperconnectivity, Not Well Understood, Ties All Smart Devices   By John P. Desmond, AI Trends Editor    In AITrends

Hyperscale computing refers to an agile method of processing data, which can scale processing capacity up or down depending on requirements of data traffic.  

The approach is being enhanced with hyperscale application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) that combine AI/machine learning accelerators with switch fabric systems on a chip (SoCs).   

A related term, hyperconnectivity, was originally coined by Canadian social scientists to refer to the condition of humans in networked organizations and societies of being always connected by a variety of electronic means.   

In computer networking today, hyperconnectivity refers to all things communicating through the network, encompassing person-to-person, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. This scenario has been enabled by huge increases in network bandwidth and with the introduction of IoT sensors and the AI systems capable of processing the massive volumes of data produced. 

Hyperconnectivity is now extending to the consumer, with a new generation of functionality that historically separate devices such as cars and smartphones will exploit.  

However, hyperconnectivity is not a well-understood term by the general consumer, a new report from Cadence Design Systems has found. Cadence primarily serves semiconductor manufacturers with tools that help them design their chips; “Cadence by Design” is the company’s equivalent to the “Intel Inside” branding effort of Intel Corp., that worked to create awareness of the role of the company’s products in the overall market. 

Cadence commissioned Northstar Research Partners of London to survey over 3,000 adults in five technology markets: the US, UK, Israel, China and Germany. The research was conducted in Q4 2020.  

“As consumers, hyperconnectivity is greatly influencing our lives, enabled by the underlying computing developer ecosystem, from IP through semiconductors to systems companies,” stated Nimish Modi, senior vice president, marketing and business development at Cadence, in a press release. “Through tighter collaboration, the industry has a tremendous opportunity to accelerate the development of innovative technologies incorporating power-efficient design, AI/ML enablement, security and safety to best reflect the needs and concerns of today’s hyperconnected consumers.”   .. .
