When YouTube was launched in 2005 surely nobody could have predicted its meteoric rise in popularity, influence and usage. In less than a decade, viewings of videos on the site have gone from 8 million views a day to a staggering 2 billion views, and the internet may well be reaching the capacity of being able to cope with this success.

Brian Corbett at Tyndall National Institute is investigating the use of lasers as a light source for fiber connections in computers. He is working with Seagate in Derry and his research aims to improve the speed and energy efficiency of data transfer and storage, and offer potential solutions to the management of the exponentially increasing amount of data on the web.
