Crowd sourced articles

There are often times when I come across a topic that is very interesting, but get stuck along the way when things get too technical.

With increasing interdisciplinarity of the research that we carry out nowadays, it is very important that we engage in conversation with people having diverse expertise, and use innovative and interactive ways to keep up with it.

The following is a well-intentioned step in this direction. This is an attempt to crowd-source an article. The link within the article (hopefully, articles in the near future!) will allow you to input your own comments, in light of your expertise, and help us keep updated with the current trends.

I would like this to appear as a live document. Unfortunately at present, I don’t know how to make comments entered by editors visible in the embedded version below. If you happen to know of a nifty way to do this, let me know!

To the best of my knowledge, I am not aware if any current format allows you to provide your comments ‘inside’ an article. So let me know what you think, and of course, please do share this with your friends and colleagues! – Srikanth, 23rd April 2019.

    I received some comments from Auro on the 17th of June 2019 – here goes!

    I would like to contribute with a small question: let’s suppose one of those big player relies on standard communication channels without the benefit of those extra microseconds provided by the “secret” microwave channel.

    Can an effort based on improving signal processing at the transmitter and at the receiver (at the algorithmic level) compensate or result in a net lower latency in terms of the whole information processing?

    Rephrasing it: could faster algorithms compensate for the slower traditional channels speed and hence justify a larger investment in the algorithmic research than in improving the physical speed at which the electromagnetic waves carrying information travel, provided you invest the same resources you are using now to build the “secret” microwave channel?
