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

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
