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

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...

Today traditional IT approaches leverage well-architected compute/networking domains to control what applications can access what data, and how. DevOps includes rapid application development/deployment leveraging concepts like containerization, third-party sourced applications and databases. Such applications need access to production data for its test and iteration cycles. Data Security? That sounds like a roadblock to DevOps vs. protecting the crown jewels to those in IT.

The last two years has seen discussions about cloud computing evolve from the public / private / hybrid split to the reality that most enterprises will be creating a complex, multi-cloud strategy. Companies are wary of committing all of their resources to a single cloud, and instead are choosing to spread the risk – and the benefits – of cloud computing across multiple providers and internal infrastructures, as they follow their business needs. Will this approach be successful? How large is the ...
