Material scientists create fabric alternative to batteries for wearable devices - A major factor holding back development of wearable biosensors for health monitoring is the lack of a lightweight, long-lasting power supply. Now scientists at the University of Massachusetts Amherst led by materials chemist Trisha L. Andrew report that they have developed a method for making a charge-storing system that is easily integrated into clothing for "embroidering a charge-storing pattern onto any gar...

IoT Competency Needs will forever change Systems Engineering

Webinar – Thursday, November 15, 2018 – Univ. of California at Irvine Online Program

Join instructor John Blyler, M.S., Founder of JB Systems Media and Tech on how the fully connected world is quickly becoming a reality.

Architects and developers of this new world must understand both the hardware and software basic of IoT and IIOT systems as well as the proven way to deal with the complexities of the integration of sensors, processors, wireless connectivity, edge to cloud networks, data partitioning and processing, AI, machine language, digital threads and twins, and much more. Such complexity can only be handled with a systems-of-systems (SoS) engineering approach.

But while systems engineering may hold many of the solutions to IoT challenges, systems engineering must evolve. Some have even suggested that the data requirements of the IOT and corresponding digital threads are putting the engineering back into systems engineering via model-based designs. This webcast will show why a basic understanding of the IoT hardware and software technologies must be integrated with a systems engineering approach to successfully meet the challenges ahead. Professionals that are so prepared with both the basics of IoT and systems engineering will stand a better chance of competing in the IOT space.

The Geography of Not Voting (part 2):

The map (below) immediately raises questions like: Why is voting much higher in Missouri than in Arkansas, even along the border? Why are people in North Carolina good voters and people in Tennessee not? Why does West Virginia stand out from its neighbors, even along the borders? The difference clearly has something to do with the laws and how hard a state makes it to vote. Clearly, a state can depress voter turnout if it wants to by making it hard to register and hard to vote once registered, and the states with low turnout rates are mostly red states. However, the reverse is not entirely true. Some of the states with the highest turnout, like Nebraska and North Carolina, are also red states. Nevertheless, most of the high-turnout states are blue, no doubt in large part because state governments there don't try to suppress the vote.

One other factor that plays a (small) role here is how competitive elections are. In states and counties where it is a foregone conclusion which candidate will win, there is less reason to vote than in areas that are bitterly fought over. Still, the conclusion is that much of the U.S. has a pretty abysmal voting record, especially compared to other countries, where 70-90% turnout is normal, and some of that is due to state laws that impede voting.

Scientists 'tame' some disruptive environmental effects on quantum computers - A team of scientists, led by Professor Winfried Hensinger at the University of Sussex, have made a major breakthrough concerning one of the biggest problems facing quantum computing: how to reduce the disruptive effects of environmental "noise" on the highly sensitive function of a large-scale quantum computer.
