Oggi, LEGO® Education ha annunciato la disponibilità della piattaforma Education EV3 di LEGO MINDSTORMS®, la prossima generazione di robotica per le aule scolastiche che porta avanti una tradizione di 15 anni di tecnologia robotica MINDSTORMS per l'educazione. La piattaforma EV3 è stata creata in base al feedback da oltre 800 educatori in tutto il mondo e fornisce un programma di robotica pertinente e la tecnologia per insegnare informatica, scienza, tecnologia, ingegneria e matematica attraverso esperienze dirette con sensori, motori, programmazione e il componente programmabile EV3. Gli studenti possono ora costruire e programmare un robot completamente funzionante in una sola lezione di 45 minuti.
La piattaforma include un programma personalizzabile offerto in formato digitale e che può essere installato direttamente nel pacchetto di programmazione software lobby MINDSTORMS di LEGO Education. Il libro di esercizi incorporato può essere usato dagli studenti per memorizzare il loro lavoro mentre progrediscono con le lezioni, rendendo facile per gli insegnanti il lavoro di controllo del progresso degli studenti e la valutazione degli stessi.
La piattaforma EV3 comprende progetti ingegneristici e un pacchetto di programmi con 30 ore di istruzioni per il lavoro nelle aule. La struttura delle attività del programma di progetti ingegneristici segue i reali processi ingegneristici usati dagli scienziati e dagli ingegneri in molti settori. Utilizzando i video di robot reali come ispirazione, gli studenti hanno a disposizione una direttiva per la progettazione che li incoraggia a sviluppare, progettare e condividere la loro soluzione. Durante tutto il processo, gli studenti imparano grazie alla combinazione e all'applicazione di competenze disciplinari scientifiche, tecnologiche e matematiche mentre costruiscono il loro progetto. Questa struttura è studiata per aiutare gli studenti a sviluppare le capacità di pensiero creativo, problem-solving, lavoro di squadra e le capacità comunicative necessarie al successo sia in ambito scolastico che nel mondo reale.
Il pacchetto principale Education EV3 di LEGO MINDSTORMS comprende la componente EV3 Brick, una batteria ricaricabile, sensori, motori, un'ampia selezione di altre componenti, una ruota a palla nuova e le istruzioni di costruzione. La piattaforma software intuitiva per EV3 si basa sul software di programmazione grafica di National Instruments LabVIEW™, la stessa tecnologia che è alla base di alcune delle più grandi innovazioni sul pianeta e che include nuove capacità di inserimento dei dati che permette agli studenti di raccogliere, tracciare grafici e calcolare i loro risultati. Inoltre è disponibile il pacchetto di sviluppo Education EV3 di LEGO MINDSTORMS, che consente agli studenti di costruire robot ancora più grandi e complessi. Per facilitare la gestione dei corsi in aula, sia il pacchetto principale che quello di sviluppo sono forniti di contenitori e di vassoio per l'ordinamento.
LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 può già essere pre-ordinato e sarà pronto nel semestre autunnale del 2013.

Now that the world has connected “things,” we need to build these devices as truly intelligent in order to create instantaneous and precise results. This means you have to do as much of the processing at the point of entry as you can: at the edge. The killer use cases for IoT are becoming manifest through AI engines on edge devices. An autonomous car has this dual edge/cloud analytics model, producing precise, real-time results. In his session at @ThingsExpo, John Crupi, Vice President and Eng...

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.
