To commemorate the Stonewall Uprising, and as part of NYU’s Stonewall at 50, NYU Sydney embarked on a project which combines people and technology with the intention of showcasing how NYU’s global locations can overcome geographical distances, participate in dialogue concerning issues important to the University, and honor the anniversary.
Inside the MakerSpace at Tandon’s MetroTech Center, Victoria Bill, MakerSpace Manager, and Gabriella Cammarata, recent graduate of the Integrated Digital Media master’s program, are leading a class in which students 3D print braces for children living with cerebral palsy.
Although it’s convenient to use public Wi-Fi in an airport, hotel, gym, library, or local business, remember that public Wi-Fi networks are often exploited by malicious actors seeking access to your sensitive data. For this reason, it’s critical that you remain aware of common Wi-Fi scam tactics and the best practices for safely connecting to and using public Wi-Fi.
Syntactic foam is a substance that lends submersible vehicles both strength and buoyancy. Nikhil Gupta, an associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, has developed a filament that will enable the foam to be printed on standard commercial 3D printers.
Congratulations to NYU professor and Tech Summit keynote speaker Yann LeCun, one of three researchers to receive the 2018 Turing Award. LeCun, Yoshua Bengio and Geoffrey Hinton, were honored with the $1 million “Nobel Prize of computing” in recognition of their work in AI deep learning.
The world of 3D printing has expanded beyond the confines of plastics and includes various new 3D printing materials, with many more on the horizon. In some cases, the modern 3D printing process combines with age-old techniques to produce something amazing. Through a time-consuming and fascinating process, it is possible to “print” metal objects.
Digital Library Technology Services (DLTS) is proud to report that it has added the 10,000th book to the Arabic Collections Online (ACO), an open-access library of Arabic language books. ACO makes use of a number of NYU IT resources to provision and maintain the infrastructure for the repository.
Since people started gathering together, we’ve been investigating how to effectively deliver and absorb knowledge. Adaptive learning, one of the most promising developments to emerge from online course delivery, can make the process more individualized and possibly more effective.
Srishti Sanya is one of two student Executive Co-Chair for HackNYU 2019. Connect sat down with her (virtually!) to discuss how she became involved with the event and what she’s learned from it.
George Sadowsky was the Director of NYU’s Academic Computing Facility and the Director of Network Services at ITS prior to his retirement in November, 2000. This article, originally published in the spring 2001 issue of Connect, was an excerpt from reminiscences given by George.
