Un total de 282 estudiantes de diferentes partes de los Emiratos Árabes Unidos participaron en la clase temática sobre sostenibilidad en el hotel Ritz-Carlton de Abu Dhabi, facilitado por Illac Angelo Diaz, director ejecutivo de Liter of Light, la organización sin fines de lucro ganadora del premio Zayed Future Energy Prize en el año 2015.

La clase de 30 minutos destacó el rol de los jóvenes en todo el mundo para contribuir a reducir la pobreza energética, al mismo tiempo que los instó a diseñar soluciones que generen un futuro más sostenible.

El evento también contó con la instalación de 2400 faroles solares, que formaron una pieza luminosa única en homenaje al Sheikh Zayed, fundador de los Emiratos Árabes Unidos, en el centésimo aniversario de su nacimiento, que se celebra en todos los Emiratos en 2018.

El premio Zayed Future Energy Prize es el premio de energía renovable y sostenibilidad más importante del mundo y reconoce cada año las contribuciones destacadas de empresas, escuelas, grupos sin fines de lucro e individuos. La oficina de Filipinas de Liter of Light brindó iluminación solar a un costo asequible a miles de hogares, escuelas y edificios laborales afectados por desastres naturales a través de sus programas de educación y autoayuda.

La Dra. Nawal Al-Hosany, directora del premio Zayed Future Energy Prize, afirmó: “El evento que hoy bate este récord es una forma inspiradora de conmemorar el Año de Zayed y los 10 años del premio Zayed Future Energy Prize, creado en honor al legado y a la visión sobre el medioambiente del Sheikh Zayed. La última década fue testigo de cómo las vidas de millones de personas cambiaron de forma positiva gracias a la gran cantidad de galardonados con este premio, entre los cuales Liter of Light es un claro ejemplo. El evento de hoy destaca la vital importancia de los jóvenes en el avance hacia la energía renovable y el diálogo sobre sostenibilidad, y el poder que tienen como agentes de cambio ahora y el futuro”.

Liter of Light es un símbolo de esperanza para las escuelas y comunidades de todo el mundo, con su trabajo por el desarrollo de capacidades comunitarias y la fabricación local que trascienden fronteras. Los faroles solares ensamblados por los estudiantes para la instalación, luego, se donarán a Red Crescent para que se instalen en las calles y en los hogares de los más necesitados.

Con respecto al récord establecido por Liter of Light, Diaz dijo: “Nuestros jóvenes son una fuente de energía e ideas increíbles para promover la sostenibilidad y la acción responsable. El evento de hoy es un mensaje poderoso de esperanza para los jóvenes de todos los Emiratos Árabes Unidos y del mundo sobre la diferencia que puedan hacer si se abordan los desafíos sobre sostenibilidad global”.

Samer Khallouf, árbitro oficial de GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS, confirmó que el evento de hoy es la Clase más grande sobre sostenibilidad medioambiental e hizo entrega de un certificado oficial que avala el récord a la Dra. Nawal Al Hosany.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
