Programming Computers in Everyday Language

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

Computers speak a language of their own. They can only be programmed by those, who know the code. Computer scientists of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are presently working on a software that directly translates natural language into machine-readable source texts. In this way, users may generate own computer applications in a few sentences. The challenge to be managed is that people do not always describe processes in a strictly chronological order. A new analysis tool developed by KIT researchers serves to automatically order ...

Anne Condon: Computer Scientist. Passionate Academic. Triathlete.

Tech Republic

Women were far more well represented in computer science when Anne Condon first decided in high school the subject sounded interesting, despite never having used a computer. Decades of theoretical computer science work later, Condon, who now serves as head of the computer science department at the University of British Columbia, is dedicated to helping young women find their way in the field. Condon joined the Computing Research Association's Committee on the Status of Women in 1994 and for three years before her term ended in 2007, she headed a project to...

Towards Big Data Computing at Extreme-Scales

CCCBlog

Former Computing Community Consortium (CCC) Computing Innovation Fellow (CI Fellow), Dr. Ioan Raicu, now an Assistant Professor in Computer Science at Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) and a research faculty member in the Math and Computer Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory, focuses on the relatively new distributed systems paradigm called Many-Task Computing (MTC). MTC aims to bridge the gap between two predominant paradigms, namely High-Throughput Computing (HTC) and High-Performance Computing (HPC). His work has focused on defining and explor...

DOE to Build Supercomputers for ORNL and LLNL

The U.S. Department of Energy today unveiled plans to build two GPU-accelerated supercomputers — expected to deliver at least three-times greater performance than today’s most powerful system — which will move the world closer to the long-held goal of exascale computing. The supercomputers, to be installed in 2017, will be based on next-generation IBM POWER servers with

'Wearable Technology' Curriculum Aims to Fuel Interest in STEM

Researchers at the University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO) and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) are developing a curriculum that will enable all students to learn the science behind "wearable technology." The three-year project, backed by a U.S. National Science Foundation grant, will include inquiry-based activities to about 900 students in grades 4-6 who attend public school in Nebraska. Participating students will receive kits featuring conductive thread, light-emitting diode (LED) lights, sensors, and other components commonly found in high-tech clothing. The students also will wor...

UC Berkeley Research Center Aims to Develop Second Generation of Surgical Robots

The New York Times

University of California (UC), Berkeley scientists are establishing the Center for Automation and Learning for Medical Robots, a research center intended to help develop medical robots that can perform low-level and repetitive surgical tasks, enabling human doctors to concentrate on the most challenging and complex aspects of operations. "Our goal is to help surgeons focus on the critical aspects of surgery, rather than having to perform each tedious and repetitive subtask," says UC Berkeley professor Ken Goldberg. In May, the researchers presented a ...
