The National Institute for Leadership Advancement for 2014 was held at UC San Diego this year. The future looks very promising with the excellent leaders that attended this conference. The variety of workshops and inspirational stories have given attendees excellent tools and inspiration to lead their chapters in this 2014-2015 fiscal year. SHPE National has presented […]
Congratulations to UC Merced for being selected as the hosting chapter for Region 1 RLDC. With the assistance and collaboration of the Silicon Valley Professional Chapter, San Francisco Professional Chapter, and the Fresno Professional Chapter, we look forward to an excellent conference for 2015!
The Bomba Cup is an event where each year all chapters from Region 1 compete in a soccer tournament. Winning team gets bragging rights for the entire year as the best soccer players our region has to offer.
A metabolic research group has developed a recombinant E. coli strain that biosynthesizes 60 different nanomaterials covering 35 elements on the periodic table. Among the elements, the team could biosynthesize 33 novel nanomaterials for the first time, advancing the forward design of nanomaterials through the biosynthesis of various single and multi-elements.
Scientists have applied a machine learning technique using artificial intelligence to perfect and automate atomic-scale manufacturing, something which has never been done before. The vastly greener, faster, smaller technology enabled by this development greatly reduces impact on the climate while still satisfying the insatiable demands of the information age.
Researchers have engineered diamond strings that can be tuned to quiet a qubit's environment and improve memory from tens to several hundred nanoseconds, enough time to do many operations on a quantum chip.
Researchers will present a new lane-change algorithm that splits the difference. It allows for more aggressive lane changes than the simple models do but relies only on immediate information about other vehicles' directions and velocities to make decisions.
