Stanford President Has 4 Ideas for Boosting Women in Tech

Forbes

Stanford University president John Hennessy's speech at Intel Capital's recent annual summit focused on four barriers he says are preventing gender equality in the technology industry and his proposed solutions for each. Hennessy says, "our system is broken somewhere between middle school and high school," noting that in elementary school girls do slightly better than boys in math and science, but they fall behind in early adolescence. Hennessy recommends finding better role models and inspiration for girls. Hennessy also criticizes the rise of the "gamification ...

255 Terabits: Researchers Demonstrate Record Data Transmission Over New Type of Fiber

Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in the Netherlands and the University of Central Florida (CREOL) in the USA, report in the journal Nature Photonics the successful transmission of a record high 255 Terabits/s over a new type of fibre allowing 21 times more bandwidth than currently available in communication networks. This new type of fibre could be an answer to mitigating the impending optical Our data hungry society Due to the popularity of Internet services and emerging network of capacity-hungry datacentres, demand for telecommunication bandwidth is expected to ...

HPCU Bi-Weekly Challenge - Hybrid Parallel Rumor Mill

RELEASE DATE:

November 24, 2014

TITLE:

Hybrid Parallel Rumor Mill

SUMMARY:

This problem challenges you to create a hybrid MPI+OpenMP model of a rumor spreading through a population.

QUESTION:

The model in this problem is based on Shodor's Rumor Mill system dynamics model (http://shodor.org/talks/ncsi/vensim/RumorMill.html). You may find it helpful to reference that model as you solve the problem.

This challenge problem is also similar to six previous "Hy...

Earth’s Magnetic Field Could Flip Within a Human Lifetime

UC Berkeley

It’s not as bizarre as it sounds. Earth’s magnetic field has flipped – though not overnight – many times throughout the planet’s history. Its dipole magnetic field, like that of a bar magnet, remains about the same intensity for thousands to millions of years, but for incompletely known reasons it occasionally weakens and, presumably over a few thousand years, reverses direction. Left to right, Biaggio Giaccio, Gianluca Sotilli, Courtney Sprain and Sebastien Nomade sitting next to an outcrop in the Sulmona basin of the Apennine Mountains that contai...

New Records Set for Silicon Quantum Computing

University of New South Wales

Two research teams working in the same laboratories at UNSW Australia have found distinct solutions to a critical challenge that has held back the realization of super powerful quantum computers. The teams created two types of quantum bits, or "qubits" -- the building blocks for quantum computers -- that each process quantum data with an accuracy above 99%. The two findings have been published simultaneously today in the journal Nature Nanotechnology. "For quantum computing to become a reality we need to operate the bits with v...
