Office of the Director of National Intelligence Sponsors SEI to Lead National AI Engineering Initiative

By [email protected]_84

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University, with funding and guidance from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), will lead a national initiative to advance the discipline of artificial intelligence (AI) engineering for defense and national security. As the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC) increasingly invest in AI, they have prioritized safe, ethical, and secure solutions. Current AI solutions, which are often speedily deployed and difficult to replicate, verify, and validate, could lead to a landscape far from the DoD’s vision. With the sponsorship of ODNI, the SEI will establish and lead an AI Engineering Initiative that will guide the development of a multi-year research and development roadmap and develop capabilities based on partners’ core competencies.

ODNI and the SEI initiated this effort in response to a growing call for an engineering discipline for

Software Engineering Is Shaping The Jobs Of Tomorrow, Here’s How

By [email protected]_84

This article is sponsored by Billy Blue College of Design at Torrens University Australia.

Software engineering is an ever expanding frontier, full of constant innovation. Over the past decade, the industry’s growth has been skyrocketing globally. In Australia, the industry has grown by an annualised 11.4% since 2015.

Think about it – when was the last time you went an entire day without using some form of software? From listening to your favourite music on Spotify, to playing a round of Overwatch and tapping your debit card to pay for your morning coffee, these everyday tasks wouldn’t be possible without someone creating the software that makes them run.

In an article discussing the future of software engineering, Maryville University noted that, “As businesses of all kinds rely more heavily on computer-driven processes, it’s up to software engineers to design, maintain, and innovate these infrastructures.”

One of SA’s first independent computer science schools, the Academy for Computer Science and Software Engineering (ACSSE) in the Faculty of Science at the University of Johannesburg (UJ), is celebrating 50 years.

Co-founded in 1970 by professors Sebastiaan “Basie” von Solms and Andries van der Walt, ACSSE has since attained global status for its programmes.

Van der Walt and Von Solms were the first two staff members of the academy and the latter was head of computer science for 27 years.

The academy has a strong international research record, and is currently concentrating on areas related to the fourth industrial revolution.

ACSSE is also now heavily involved in research, focusing on cyber security, cyber counter-intelligence, artificial intelligence, intelligent software agents, Web services and biometric applications.

Von Solms says the department has made significant progress in

New software programmes to help solve civil, environmental and mining engineering challenges

By [email protected]_84

Software company Seequent has announced the release of GeoStudio Core, a software programme that combines updated versions of its SLOPE/W and SEEP/W products with a new, reformulated SIGMA/W product.

The upgrades are designed to allow geotechnical engineers to understand and tackle major engineering challenges for infrastructure and mining projects – from dams and levees to tunnelling and the stability of cuts in underground and openpit mines.

The company states that GeoStudio Core 2021 is its most significant release in the past five years. It explains that the new Strength Reduction Stability analysis in SIGMA/W complements the solutions in SLOPE/W to provide a rigorous understanding of slope failure mechanisms, allowing engineers to design effective stabilisation measures. The products integrate with SEEP/W to include the impact of changing groundwater conditions, with the objective of providing a comprehensive solution for stability problems.

The combined GeoStudio Core solution runs in a single integrated environment

Live Webinar – Engineering the Machines of the Future, Right Now

By [email protected]_84

Live Webinar – Engineering the Machines of the Future, Right Now – Nov 10, 2PM ET

The engineering of equipment for production applications is the most essential, yet least discussed component of part and assembly making. Traditional factory processes involve the ad hoc integration of machines, human operators and information to both links them together and form simple feedback systems that ultimately determine quality, productivity and value.

Modern technologies driven by advanced software are moving beyond the simple digitization of manual processes and have made production equipment generators of large quantities of data. While originally intended to monitor machine health and some aspects of machine performance, data quantity and transfer rates make this information stream a valuable commodity by itself. Production equipment must be engineered today not only to make physical objects, but to make sense of the process of making those objects. Engineering great machines and great processes starts
