Optimizing Energy Efficiency in Datacenters with Advanced Cooling Technologies

As hubs of computing power, datacenters are essential for powering the digital services we rely on daily, from cloud computing to artificial intelligence. However, this surge in datacenter operations has also resulted in a significant spike in energy consumption and environmental impact.  Traditional cooling methods have proven to be energy-intensive and inefficient in meeting the […]

Technical Marvels

This series presents selected technical marvels from the fields of computing technology, mathematics, astronomy, surveying, time measurement, looms and automatons (automaton figures, chess-playing machines, musical automatons, automaton writers, drawing automatons, automaton clocks, picture clocks, globes, historical robots). The examples are largely from the 15th to 20th centuries and do not claim to be exhaustive. In […]

Sharing Through Storytelling

I recently attended the Logic Mentoring Workshop, a workshop for young researchers to discuss academic life as logicians and computer scientists. Many students feel insecure at conferences because they find a lot of the talks hard or impossible to follow. I do not blame them; I often do not get much out of conference talks […]

Building Computing Systems for Embodied Artificial Intelligence

Embodied AI involves embedding artificial intelligence into tangible entities, such as robots, equipping them with the capacity to perceive, learn from, and engage dynamically with their surroundings [1]. This approach facilitates robots in evolving and adapting to environmental changes. A notable instance of this is the Figure AI humanoid, which leverages OpenAI’s cutting-edge technologies. It […]

Shape the Future of Computing

ACM encourages its members to take a direct hand in shaping the future of the association. There are more ways than ever to get involved.

Get Involved

Communications of the ACM (CACM) is now a fully Open Access publication.

By opening CACM to the world, we hope to increase engagement among the broader computer science community and encourage non-members to discover the rich resources ACM has to offer.
