Driverless car expert Tim Chapin, interim dean of the College of Social Science and Public Policy at Florida State University and professor of urban and regional planning, believes that it may finally be time to start taking this technology seriously. Chapin, whose current research interests revolve around how Florida’s demographic trends influence urban patterns and transportation systems in the state, believes that forward thinking tech companies will be agents for dramatic change in an industry that, for decades, has been largely defined by slow and iterative progress.

Big Ideas for Big (ish) Data

Big Data. We’ve all heard the term, but many of us may not fully understand the concept or all the its many layers. Some still think it’s a trendy buzzword thrown around by twenty-something executives in Silicon Valley working on the latest gaming system or website. But the reality is big data is literally everywhere, and it’s not just a thing, it’s also an action. I sat down with Mike Draugelis, former Lockheed Martin missile defense engineer turned Penn Medicine’s Chief Data Scientist, to learn a bit more about the topic, the use of big data in health care and beyond, and the future of the industry.

Chip-Sized, High-Speed Terahertz Modulator Raises Possibility of Faster Data Transmission

Modulator.jpg

Tufts University engineers have invented a chip-sized, high-speed modulator that operates at terahertz (THz) frequencies and at room temperature at low voltages without consuming DC power. The discovery could help fill the “THz gap” that is limiting development of new and more powerful wireless devices that could transmit data at significantly higher speeds than currently possible.
