Microgrids: Providing Energy Services Locally

Microgrids: Providing Energy Services Locally

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Science

Two stylized alternative visions of how the power system might evolve to meet future requirements for the high power quality and reliability (PQR) electricity service that modern digital economies demand will be contrasted, a supergrids paradigm and a dispersed paradigm. Some of the economics of the dispersed vision are explored, and perspectives are presented on both the choice of homogeneous ...

Innovation and Environmentalism: Creating a Bicycle Out of Used Water Bottles

Innovation and Environmentalism: Creating a Bicycle Out of Used Water Bottles

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Science

A group of students from Appalachian State University's Industrial Design School in North Carolina created a working bicycle out of used water bottles and won the Juicy Ideas National Competition. The students have now come to Google to talk about how they created the bike, their version 2.0, and how they plan to make their idea a reality.See the winning team's video at:http://www.youtube.com/w...

Symmetry Group-based Learning for Regularity Discovery from Real World Patterns

Symmetry Group-based Learning for Regularity Discovery from Real World Patterns

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Science

We explore a formal and computational characterization of real world regularity using discrete symmetry groups (hierarchy) as a theoretical basis, embedded in a well-defined Bayesian framework. Our existing work on "A Computational Model for Periodic Pattern Perception Based on Frieze and Wallpaper Groups" (TPAMI 2004), 'Near-regular texture analysis and manipulation' (SGIGRAPH 2004), and "A La...

Thue Games - A Faculties at Google Talk (Krakow 2009)

Thue Games - A Faculties at Google Talk (Krakow 2009)

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Science

Thue games can be played on various combinatorial structures: graphs, hypergraphs, words, Euclidean spaces, etc. Basic idea goes back to Thue, who proved that the integers can be 3-colored so that adjacent intervals have different color patterns. This striking result has been generalized in many directions, leading to a variety of peculiar coloring problems with unexpected connections to other ...

Amdahl's Law in the Multicore Era

Amdahl's Law in the Multicore Era

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Science

Over the last several decades computer architects have been phenomenally successful turning the transistor bounty provided by Moore's Law into chips with ever increasing single-threaded performance. During many of these successful years, however, many researchers paid scant attention to multiprocessor work. Now as vendors turn to multicore chips, researchers are reacting with more papers on mul...

AGU Scientists Tech Talks: Virtual Globes and Real Time Air Qualty Information – Informing the Public

AGU Scientists Tech Talks: Virtual Globes and Real Time Air Qualty Information – Informing the Public

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Science

A critical facet of the US EPA's mission is to protect public health. EPA is embracing new technologies to assist in fulfilling that mission. Virtual globes allow the Agency to furnish realtime air quality data and emissions information to the public through tools like Google Earth. By interfacing with a tool that is widely available and already in use by many citizens, EPA can more effectively...

AGU Scientists Tech Talks: Google's Spatial Tools in the Marine Environment – Decision Support

AGU Scientists Tech Talks: Google's Spatial Tools in the Marine Environment – Decision Support

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Science

Google Maps and Google Earth have put much of the functionality of Geographic Information Systems in the hands of the end users. Maritime users are just beginning to understand the power of map mashups that bring together diverse datasets to help mariners and those who manage the waterways to better understand the uses, risks, and impacts of vessel traffic on our nation's waterways. I will pres...

AGU Scientists Tech Talks: A Tour of Glacier Data Sets via Google Earth and GeoServe

AGU Scientists Tech Talks: A Tour of Glacier Data Sets via Google Earth and GeoServe

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Science

Two widely used glacier data sets are the World Glacier Inventory (WGI) and the Glacier Photograph Collection (GPC). Both data sets are available from the National Snow and Ice Data Center. The WGI encompasses over 100,000 records of glacier data and the GPC houses approximately 10,000 digitized photographs. The online GPC has doubled in size this year due to significant updates from the USGS I...

AGU Scientists Tech Talks: Using Google SketchUp with Google Earth for Scientific Applications

AGU Scientists Tech Talks: Using Google SketchUp with Google Earth for Scientific Applications

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Science

Numerous scientists and engineers have discovered the value of the Google Earth application and Keyhole Markup Language as a medium for research and teaching in earth science, life science, and environmental science. Google SketchUp, on the other hand, has been used mainly for designing buildings and for recreational 3D modeling.This talk demonstrates the use of Google SketchUp to create Collad...
