Media Alert: See the Nation’s Brightest Young Scientific Innovators in Action at the Intel Science Talent Search

A new approach to the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s, a model that can predict the likelihood of mortgage delinquency, and the development of new drug candidates that could potentially help in treating the common flu. These are just a few examples of the research currently being developed by 40 high school seniors who are poised to be the nation’s next scientific innovators. They’ll be in Washington, D.C. from March 6-12 to compete for more than $630,000 in the Intel Science Talent Search, a program of Society for Science & the Public.

 

WHAT:

Media are invited to attend the Intel Science Talent Search public exhibition of projects where they’ll be able to get a sense of what the country’s future leading scientists, researchers and engineers look like. Finalists will be available for interviews and photos as they display, describe and answer questions about their notable research.

 

WHEN & WHERE:

Public Exhibition of Projects:

Sunday, March 9, 1-4 p.m. ET
National Geographic Society
1145 17th St. NW
Washington, D.C, 20036
 

WHO:

All 40 Intel Science Talent Search 2014 finalists. These high schools seniors hail from 33 schools in 14 states. The finalists’ research projects include promising innovations in:

• Biocompatible solar cells

• Computer models that simulate social networks or aid in disease screening

• Innovative breast cancer research

• Filter and sensor research to detect arsenic in the home

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
Information technology (IT) advances are transforming the way we innovate in business, thereby disrupting the old guard and their predictable status-quo. It’s creating global market turbulence. Industries are converging, and new opportunities and threats are emerging, like never before. So, how are savvy chief information officers (CIOs) leading this transition?
