The Intel(r) Software Academic Program works to provide classroom tools to professors teaching courses in advanced technologies. The program builds relationships with universities to drive experiential classroom learning. The Intel(r) Software Academic Program is excited to start bringing Intel Internet of Things Technologies to students. The program has already seen success at Carnegie Mellon University.
At GDC 2014 this past March, Intel debuted the inaugural “Intel® University Games Showcase”, an event focusing on outstanding student game projects from universities all over the United States. 12 student project teams from nine different universities were on deck to demo their games in just nine short minutes, with the goal of winning the award for either “Best Gameplay” or “Best Visual Quality”.
Here are some related how-to’s on getting started with the Intel® Galileo Development kit that have come from the Intel OpenCourseWare on the Intel Software Academic Program, that you may find useful.
If you need a getting started walk-through of the Intel Galileo Development kit and how to program it. Schuyler St, Leger has put up on YouTube this great video. That was delivered at the Desert Code Camp, a public software event in Chandler AZ.
It's over a hour long, and includes great material. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2YpB9znCm8
By 2020, billions of smart things will be connected to the internet and each of us will have at least 6 smart, connected things. This things may have ability to easily monitor and learn about us. But this information about us can be used to make our lives better if devices can work together to give us what we want when we want it. For example, if informed by my calendar, my coffee pot can start preparing coffee when and how strong I need it. Already smart devices can act independently on our behalf when they sense our presence, turning on and off lights or adjusting heating and cooling
In a recent paper published in the International Journal of Parallel Programming, Yousun Ko, Minyoung Jung, Yo-Sub Han and Bernd Burgstaller presented techniques to parallelize memberships tests for Deteministic Finite Automata (DFAs). With the use of the Intel Academic Program Manycore Testing Lab, the team was able to conduct experiments to drive research conclusions.
Clemson University hosted the first Broadening Participating in Visualization workshop on February 10-11, 2014. I was honored to serve as a panelist and keynote on visualization from an industry perspective. Visualization plays a significant role in the exploration and understanding of data across all disciplines and the workshop served as an opportunity for networking and mentoring among underrepresented groups in the field of visualization.
In 2013, the Intel® Software Academic Program, working together with the Intel Software Development Tools Team, brought the Intel Software Conference to São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. With 238 attendees in total, the conference delivered hands on lab training's and theoretical lectures. The infrastructure of the Manycore Lab implemented in 2013, delivered the experience on a live Intel Xeon-Phi system. We are excited to announce that 2014 will be even bigger and better, including a Parallel Software Marathon.
We’re very pleased to announce this year’s cohort of Intel Student Partners! This is an extremely talented group of university students picked from 5 universities across Kenya, who will be running Intel activities on their campuses over the course of the year. This program is designed to enable students at leading universities across the country to have the opportunity to work closely with Intel and understand our latest technologies. The program is for students who realize the best technology careers come to those who chase their dreams.
