Intel Showcases Education Solutions for All Kinds of Classrooms at ISTE 2014

Intel Corporation announced that three customers launched products based on its new education-specific product reference designs this week at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) 2014 Conference in Atlanta. Created by Intel® Education, these reference designs draw on more than a decade of experience in student learning, providing customers with shorter development time, customization capabilities and the latest technologies, features and software. The three products are the Panasonic 3E*, the CTL Education Chromebook* and the M&A Education Chromebook*.

Designed for active learning and active students, the Panasonic 3E is a tablet that comes with a detachable keyboard to deliver laptop capabilities. Panasonic is the first company to offer Intel’s purpose-built 2 in 1 reference design as a device for K-12 students.

The Panasonic 3E ships with a comprehensive software bundle of essential K-12 applications that makes learning more active and teachers’ lives easier. It also features a thermometer probe, on-board cameras and an add-on lens that turn science and mathematics into hands-on, highly engaging, STEM-centered learning.

Based on Intel® Education’s reference design for Chromebook, the CTL Education Chromebook and M&A Education Chromebook are lightweight, easy to use, and can withstand daily student use – in class, at home and anywhere between. Developed for students, the Chromebooks feature a rugged, easy-carry handle; rotatable camera; optional snap-on lens for science exploration; and non-slip texture.

The Education Chromebooks are equipped with Intel Inside® for the best Chromebook experience, providing students with long battery life for all-day learning and the best ability to multitask, open multiple tabs and support offline learning. Intel is investing in the Chrome ecosystem to ensure that Intel® architecture offers the best experience in a Chrome browser.

“These new reference designs demonstrate the diversity of Intel’s portfolio of education solutions,” said John Galvin, vice president of the Sales and Marketing Group and general manager of Intel Education. “Instead of taking a one-size-fits-all approach to transforming education, we provide a variety of different tools – including devices, software, content and professional development services – to ensure that school districts can choose the right solution to achieve student success.”

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved.

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
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, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities."

Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability.

We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year.
