Виртуальная реальность: социально-философский анализ
Automated laboratory and course works check for university subjects related to programming is an up-to-date task because it requires support of a big number of software environments during all period of study. Support cost for these environments grows fast because apart from keeping particular software versions, environments also should be isolated from each other and highly available for students. The work describes possible solution for automatic check of student laboratory works applied for "Linux programming basics" and "Linux Kernel Modules programming" MOOCs. The solution is a complex information system which uses virtual machines as containers for student solutions check environments. The system process student solutions for course problems which are represented as C programs and Makefiles. The check procedure includes compilation, launch and results interpretation for particular submission. During the procedure, the information system reduces mutual influence of submissions, provides unified software environment and repeatedly reproduced check results.
This article gives an overview of the comprehensive system that supports training and retraining specialists in a field of information and telecommunication technologies. The system consists of LMS and a number of managed virtual environments for doing practical works in a distance learning mode.
The boor develops a new approach to the study of social reality in its denamics based on the revealing of connections between social and anthropological phenomena. The fundament of the approach is synergic anthropology, in the frame work of which the apparatus for the description and analysis or the "colonization" of the interface of the Social and the Anthropological is constructed. A new class of concepts is introduced, the categories of the interface, the examples of which are anthropological situation, anthropological trend, spiritual tradition etc. Anthropological trends serve as the main tool are developed, the diagnostics (the identification of anthropological formation(s), which generate trend in question) and the control (the stimulation of a trend, the blocking of it etc.). The framework is then applied to analysis of the most topical modern problems such as global risks, ecological crisis, the grwth of the virtualization of reality, the problem of the Post-human etc. Special attention is paid to the "Exit trend", which is how we call the overall anthropological trend collecting all manifestations and tendencies of the specific tiredness of the Human and his/her drive to a self-withdrawal. Using our methods of the control of trends, it is possible to formulate strategies for changing and correcting anthroposocial situation. We find that two phenomena play important role in these strategies, the transition of modernity into the postsecular paradigm, and the return of the Onthological Human, the fnthropological formation constituted in religious expirience and forced out by the po\rocesses of secularization. In the conceptual context of modern social philosophy the approach uniting social and anthropological reality in a new light, and provides new principles for determining our attitudes and strategies towards leading trends of modernity.
The use of hardware virtualization for ensuring information security is discussed. A review of various approaches to improving the security of software systems based on virtualization is given. A review of possible scenarios of using virtualization by intruders is also presented. The application domains and limitations of the available solutions and perspectives of future development in the field are discussed.
This paper examines the changes in the ethics of business communication associated with virtualization. The transfer of business communication to virtual space alters the very process of interaction and, as a consequence, ethical principles in a professional environment.
In 2006, Russia amended its competition law and added the concepts of ‘collective dominance’ and its abuse. This was seen as an attempt to address the common problem of ‘conscious parallelism’ among firms in concentrated industries. Critics feared that the enforcement of this provision would become tantamount to government regulation of prices. In this paper we examine the enforcement experience to date, looking especially closely at sanctions imposed on firms in the oil industry. Some difficulties and complications experienced in enforcement are analysed, and some alternative strategies for addressing anticompetitive behaviour in concentrated industries discussed.
