Engineers in the Coordinated Robotics Lab at the University of California, San Diego, have developed new image processing techniques for rapid exploration and characterization of structural fires by small Segway-like robotic vehicles. A sophisticated on-board software system takes the thermal data recorded by the robot’s small infrared camera and maps it onto a 3D […]
When the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of San Diego, California, debuted Gordon early last year, the system’s architects envisioned that its innovative features – such as the first large-scale deployment of flash storage (300 terabytes) in a high-performance computer – would open the door to new areas of research. “Gordon’s extraordinary […]
University of California, San Diego bioengineering professor Christian Metallo has been named a 2013 Searle Scholar. He will receive $300,000 over the next three years to pursue his research on the role of oxygen availability in dictating how fat is produced and metabolized in the body. This work will provide therapeutic insights into metabolic diseases […]
Artz will serve an academic year as a Congressional Fellow to promote STEM education Anne Artz, a teacher at The Preuss School UCSD, has been selected as one of only 27 K-12 educators nationwide to be a Congressional Fellow for the 2013-2014 Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship Program, where she will serve for an academic […]
Engineers who think like artists, physicists who thinks like dancers, scientists who think like poets, and designers who think like Mother Nature: These are some of the researchers from the University of California, San Diego on display at a public event on Friday, April 12 that will extol and explore the virtues of interdisciplinary collaboration […]
UC San Diego/Open Science Grid Collaboration Speeds Quest for Dark Matter Discovery Gordon, the unique supercomputer launched last year by the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, recently completed its most data-intensive task so far: rapidly processing raw data from almost one billion particle collisions as part of a […]
Accelerated Code Cuts Time and Cost in Seismic Modeling The image shows a snapshot of ground motion of the 2008 magnitude-5.4 Chino Hills earthquake in an east-to-west direction; the red-yellow and green-blue colors depict the amplitude of shaking. The simulation indicates that small-scale heterogeneities (causing the highly irregular pattern of shaking in the image) may […]
The University of California, San Diego is renaming its division of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) in honor of the philanthropy of the San Diego-based wireless technology leader, Qualcomm Incorporated. The multidisciplinary research center will now be known as the Qualcomm Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology, the UC San Diego […]
A team of students from the University of California, San Diego recently took home third place at the 2013 Mobile World Congress (MWC) after pitching their “Best Time to Cross the Border” app to a panel of judges from technology powerhouses such as Facebook and China Mobile. Calit2′s Tarfah Alrashed, Rodrigo Rallo and Matthew Davis […]
One of the World’s Most Advanced Networks Moves 18 Petabytes in February 2013 Soon after the conclusion of its conference on the University of California, San Diego campus about the future of research networks in California, the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC) announced a record-breaking year for the network that provides high-performance […]
