Stanford to Host 100-Year Study on Artificial Intelligence

Stanford University will spearhead a century-long initiative to study and predict the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) in all aspects of people's lives. The One Hundred Year Study on Artificial Intelligence (AI100) has started with the formation of a committee tasked with choosing an expert panel to begin a series of periodic studies of AI's implications for automation, national security, psychology, ethics, law, privacy, democracy, and other issues. "Given Stanford's pioneering role in AI and our interdisciplinary mindset, we feel obliged and qualified to host a conversation about ...

New Wind-Farm Computer Simulations Unlock Increased Power Generation: SDSC’s Trestles Supercomputer Used in Detailed Flow Analyses

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) have developed high-resolution computer simulations, done on the Trestles supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California, San Diego, that take into account how the air flows within and around a wind-farm in unprecedented detail. The study, published recently in the Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy, challenges conventional wisdom that suggests the highest power output comes when the turbines are arranged in a checkerboard pattern. As it turns out, the highest power results when t...

Upcoming Training: SDSC PACE Data Mining Bootcamp 1

February 10-11, 2015 – La Jolla, California

While modern databases can contain massive volumes of data, researchers are confronted with a virtual obstacle course in order to extract meaningful predictive information from within these records. During the two-day PACE Data Mining Boot Camp participants will receive the basic training to learn effective predictive analytic strategies associated with the growing discipline of data mining, a process that uses a variety of data analysis tools to discover patterns and relationships in data that may contribute to valid...

CODE2040 Helps Tech Plan for a Non-White-Majority USA

USA Today

By the year 2040, the United States will have a non-white majority, a demographic trend that is spurring technology companies to increase the diversity of their workforces. "If you're a smart company, you'll want an ethnically diverse team empathetic about the needs of your diverse consumers," says CODE2040 co-founder Tristan Walker. CODE2040 wants to help Silicon Valley companies make the tech industry as a whole more diverse. The nonprofit organization, founded in 2012, provides college-age African-American and Latino students who have shown an interest in c...

Women in Tech: Change the Conversation

EE Times

The G20 Summit in mid-November included a Women in Leadership conference in which leaders pledged to reduce the gender gap in workforce participation 25 percent by 2025. 1-Page CEO Joanna Weidenmiller wants to inspire more women to participate in the tech industry by highlighting their inherent skills and the field's ample opportunities. "This will be biggest job creation opportunity ever, and if you don't know tech in the next 10, 20 years you will be obsolete," Weidenmiller warns. She also says the government and school systems should incentivize businesses t...
