Over at bbgm, Deepak Singh blogs about stream computing, a term IBM has coined to define its new software architecture, computing that will "break through the boundaries" of large volumes of data, operational complexity, and real-time business requirements. Deepak thinks that it could be well utilized by biologists, including serving the areas of "pharmacovigilance and infectious disease monitoring," he writes.
