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.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical to maintaining positive ROI. Raxak Protect is an automated security compliance SaaS platform and ma...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningful and actionable insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Paul Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at...

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessions, I wanted to share some of my observations on emerging trends. As cyber security serves as a fou...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
