Watch live: Major tech themes set the stage for Dell Technologies World Digital Experience 2020

watch live: major tech themes set the stage for dell technologies world digital experience 2020

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

A  discussion of the present and future for Dell Technologies should start with the company’s namesake. That’s because the company’s founder and chief executive officer — Michael Dell — remains highly involved in the business he launched out of his college dorm room 36 years ago. And he is not shy about offering his thoughts when it comes to the future direction of the tech industry.
In an interview with CRN last month, Dell’s CEO identified what he viewed as the top tech themes for the coming year. These were multicloud, edge computing, buildout of next-generation 5G and software-defined networks, AI and machine learning, and security.
Like a poker player in a high-stakes game staring at a strong hand, Dell has some major cards to play. One of them is Dell’s majority-owned VMware Inc., the information technology services giant that has enjoyed a run of positive earnings and solid growth. Another is the firm’s strength in the datacenter, which — despite a significant migration of enterprise workloads to the cloud in response to the global pandemic — remains very much a part of the equation for the coming year.
The key question for Dell is: How does the company …

Inside the information war on Black voters

inside the information war on black voters

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

In August, about 12,000 cell phones with Detroit area code 313 got recorded messages from “Tamika Taylor.” She claimed to be a member of a civil rights organization called Project 1599, and said she was calling to warn that applying to vote by mail could lead people’s personal information to be entered into a public government database. Her tone and language led listeners to believe she was a Black woman, and she told the largely Black listeners that the database would be used to reconcile outstanding police warrants, collect credit card debt, and track people ahead of the release of a mandatory vaccine. But Tamika Taylor was not real, and the warnings were fake too. They were part of a campaign to suppress the Black vote in swing counties across five Rust Belt states. Earlier this month, the Michigan attorney general pressed charges against the founders of Project 1599, the notorious right-wing political operatives Jack Burkman and Jacob Wohl, for voter suppression in violation of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. They pled not guilty.  Black voters in the Midwest, particularly in Rust Belt states such as Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan, are crucial to the outcome of the 2020 election. And those communities are being deliberately …

Analysis: Racial inequity in who takes career, tech courses

analysis: racial inequity in who takes career, tech courses

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Career and technical education is viewed as a gateway to good jobs. But a new Hechinger/AP analysis on enrollment data from 40 states finds a deep racial divide in who benefits. The analysis shows Black and Latino students were often less likely than their white peers to enroll in science, technology, engineering and math and information technology classes. Meanwhile, they were more likely to enroll in courses in hospitality and, in the case of Black students in particular, human services. The analysis was based primarily on data from 2017-18. States will be required to report the data to the federal government. Previously enrollment data was only required to be reported by gender.

CT Health Information Exchange Set to Launch in November

ct health information exchange set to launch in november

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

By Christopher Jason

October 20, 2020 – Following four unsuccessful attempts over the past decade, Connecticut is scheduled to launch its statewide health information exchange (HIE) in November, according to the Connecticut Post.
Connecticut state leaders found it is not an easy task to implement a statewide HIE, and as a result, each unsuccessful attempt has cost the state millions of dollars.
More recently, a Connecticut Health Foundation report said the state’s organizers must develop long-term financial plans for sustainability and attract participants before launching the HIE.

State leaders wanted the HIE up and running during the initial surge of COVID-19, but it did not launch in time. This frustrated leaders because the HIE could have helped during the first wave of the pandemic.
“I just wonder how many people could have been saved, had we had this up and running,” said Allan Hackney, Connecticut’s health information technology officer. “How many health care workers could have avoided burnout if we had this data? I get very frustrated.”
Since March, over 4,500 individuals in the state have died of COVID-19.
“They were showing live graphs of information on what’s happening with COVID in counties and towns, by zip code, …

Japan’s annual electronics and information technology show kicked off online Tuesday with a focus on cutting-edge technologies and solutions to help ride out the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies, or CEATEC, is scheduled to be held virtually through Friday due to the virus outbreak after being held at the Makuhari Messe convention center in Chiba, near Tokyo, for the past 20 years.
Ironically, the volume of visitors caused temporary access issues for the exhibition’s website after the opening ceremony, prompting organizers to limit the number of new arrivals to stabilize the site.
Sharp Corp. is showcasing transparent screens that function not only as counter partitions between staff and customers in shops or medical institutions but also can display words and images, allowing them to show information or instructions for visitors.
Alps Alpine Co. is displaying touchless panels with buttons that people can “press” just by putting their fingers a few centimeters above the screen.
Panasonic Corp. is featuring its AI chatbot system “WisTalk,” which was developed to help people remotely working at home by automatically replying to …

In an effort to connect government and industry, and collaborate on mission requirements and technology solutions, the Air Force Institute of Technology, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, and Headquarters Air Force Materiel Command, will host the annual Wright-Patterson Tech Expo Oct. 20, 2020.
The event is free and will be held virtually. 
An online exhibit hall will be available all day with presentations from exhibitors and downloadable brochures and whitepapers.
“Our overall goal with the expo is to foster dialogue, collaboration, information sharing, and to generate ideas that are critical to the Air Force and our mission,” said Christopher Echols, the Chief Information Technology Officer for AFLCMC. “Industry is at the forefront in making investments in different technologies and capabilities, and we [Air Force] are often some of the early adopters of the technologies once we know the level of risk. The expo is going to be a great event, and I hope that many people will take advantage of it.”

New technology has potential to revolutionize surgery

new technology has potential to revolutionize surgery

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Two Miller School of Medicine surgeons and UMIT’s Innovate lab created a program that produces 3D holograms of a patient’s spine and brain from their own MRI images.

When surgeons go into the operating room, they typically have studied a patient’s troubled organs, but they always have to keep MRI or CT scans along the wall and take X-rays throughout the procedure to ensure they are following the unique anatomy of each patient.
But what if a 3D hologram of the patient’s organ could float next to the physicians during surgery, helping them to make more precise incisions?
This is the hope of a yearlong collaboration between two University of Miami neurosurgeons, Dr. Timur Urakov and Dr. Michael Ivan, along with the University’s Innovate lab, which uses augmented reality technology in headsets from Plantation-based company, Magic Leap. Augmented reality is a type of spatial computing that allows users to see and interact with virtual objects, like a hologram of a patient’s brain tumor, existing within the physical world.
“Visualization and knowledge of anatomy in surgery is one of the most important things, and having 3D anatomy of the brain and spine to help us …
