Intel® Software Academic Program's Michael Smith recently completed an assignment with the Universitaria de Investigación y Desarrollo (UDI) in Bucaramanga, Colombia as a Fulbright Senior Specialist. The goal of his visit was to establish research and education collaborations in high performance computing, perceptual computing and the Internet of Things (IoT). During his stay, he introduced new courses to the computer science and engineering programs utilizing the Galileo Board and Intel® RealSense™ technology.
I started my internship at Intel in the Software and Services Group last Monday, and, so far, I have nothing even vaguely negative to report. New employee orientation was actually very cool, and we had a great guest speaker.
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.

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.
Breaking News: the blog is back! First, introductions: my name is Michael Smith, Ph.D. and I am the director of the Intel Academic Program.
