The Young Person's Guide To Orchestrated Software Development

If you were an 18-year old spotty faced computer science student, would you be more interested in learning your way around the command line and scraping your fingernails on the rough edges of real code, or would you be happy to know that you'll ultimately be working with a completely automated software management system – so why bother?

Can a Windows geek learn to love Snow Leopard?

In the interests of science, I've been dividing my time lately between a Mac running Snow Leopard and a PC running Windows 7. My goal is to gain hands-on experience with Apple's hardware and software to go with the years of experience I already have with Windows. My first challenge: assembling a suite of Mac software to replace my familiar Windows tools. With one exception, I was able to find everything I needed. Here's what I chose, and why.

Do security and privacy make health IT reform impossible?

The hardest thing to be is simple. This is true in story-telling. It's true in science. It's also true in software. Any requirement that gets in the way of simplicity needs to be carefully considered, and pared down to its simplest form, before being tossed at an industry with a lot on its plate.

Nanorobot for Brain Aneurysm

The idea of nanorobots floating throughout our arteries to fight diseases and deliver drugs is migrating from science fiction to medical fact, at least in virtual 3D simulations. Nanorobotics pioneer Adriano Cavalcanti and his colleagues report progress with their nanorobot control design (NCD) software which helps them simulate the behavior of future nanorobots.

Sign language over cell phones in the U.S.

Thanks to University of Washington (UW) computer scientists, hearing-impaired users might soon be able to use sign language over a mobile phone, like in Japan or Sweden. The research team received a grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation to start a 20-person field project next year in Seattle. Of course, deaf people were already able to use text messages for communication. But as said the lead researcher, 'the point is you want to be able to communicate in your native language. For deaf people that's American Sign Language (ASL).' Now the researchers have to convince a commercial cell phone manufacturer to integrate their MobileASL software before this service becomes widely available. But read more...

Laser-aided software for tunnel construction

If you ever have cruised on California's Highway 1, you know it offers spectacular views of the Pacific ocean. But several areas of this road are potentially dangerous because they can be affected by landslides. This is why the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) is helping the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to build a kilometer-long tunnel under Devil's Slide located South of San Francisco. The project engineers will be helped by a software dubbed gVT (for 'geotechnical Visualization Tool') developed at Virginia Tech. This tool, based on ultra-precise laser scans, will improve both safety and construction progress. But read more...

Cell phones tracking nightlife activity

A Columbia University computer science professor has co-founded a New York-based company named Sense Networks to sell tracking software to other companies. It is also distributing a free version of this software named Citysense, which shows on your cell phone where the wild things are happening in your own town. Citysense 'uses advanced machine learning techniques to number crunch vast amounts of data emanating from thousands of cell-phones, GPS-equipped cabs and other data devices to paint live pictures of where people are gathering.' Citysense is available today in San Francisco before being soon deployed in Chicago and five other U.S. cities. But read more...
