Teen Entrepreneurs Working to Change the World with Tech

first_imgThe submission with the most passion, reasoning behind the answer and ability to articulate the response was offered a trip to attend the Girls Track at the 7th Annual Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network Summit in Cape Town, South Africa. Girls Track is centered on promoting and supporting STEM skills and entrepreneurship in girls ages 12-16. By connecting Girls Track participants with delegates and speakers from DWEN, they are exposed to mentorship and guidance that will largely influence their entrepreneurial journeys.Dell and Seventeen were so inspired by the hundreds of applicants and the ambition, drive and entrepreneurial spirit coming from Gen Z. There were many strong candidates, but Nihita Sarma’s business idea of a wristwatch that enhances the lives of Alzheimer’s patients rendered her a clear frontrunner amongst an impressive field of young entrepreneurs. Nihita found a leading issue for Alzheimer’s patients to be their tendency to wander off. Thus, making it challenging for caretakers to keep track of their patients at all times or feel comfortable giving them the space they long for. Through the use of GPS technology, her watch could give patients the liberty to be more independent, and lead a more normal lifestyle, preventing the progression of brain deterioration. Nihita is eager to attend DWEN to expand her entrepreneurial skills, develop her knowledge of technology, make friends to collaborate on ideas with and spend time with Mikaila Ulmer of Mikaila and the Bees at DWEN. Nihita advises other young entrepreneurs to start by identifying what they love, and then think of ways to improve it. Nihita’s knowledge, and genuine determination to improve the lives of others is impressive and inspiring. Additionally, Dell and Seventeen selected five finalists who met the contest criteria and are working on, or have the ambition to start, businesses that promote using technology for good. The finalists were all given Dell XPS Gold laptops to help launch and run their business. The business ideas and girls selected as finalists include: Energybusters by Dhvani Bhatia: Vampire energy, or energy wasted by power-consuming devices while a device is off, is a growing problem in the USA. Energybusters aims to develop an adapter that users can plug into their device to stop the energy flow when the device is fully charged or off. With this device, Energybusters hopes to decrease the country’s energy bill by millions of dollars.DateSense by Julia Gong: Julia hopes to establish DateSense, a technology company manufacturing sensors that detect the presence of date-rape drugs, namely Ketamine, GHB and Rohypnol in drinks. She plans to embed these sensors into discreet personal items, such as rings, watches or necklaces. The sensor would then send a personalized message to the user’s phone when these date rape drugs are detected. Julia hopes that her company would offer an affordable way to increase individual’s safety and peace-of-mind while attending social gatherings, as well as adding another avenue of prevention for the all-too-common date rape that occurs in our modern society.Superself by Julianne Lefelhocz: As video games increase in popularity, the integration of the virtual world with reality becomes more relevant to daily life. Julianne’s app, SuperSelf, aims to turn physical therapy into a superhero game for children. It encourages children to complete their exercises at home. With increased participation, children will be less susceptible to re-injury, arthritis, obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, respiratory disease and even cancer. SuperSelf has the potential to greatly improve many individual’s health, simply by changing the way people think about physical therapy.Eshika Saxena: Eshika hopes to produce a hand-held device that provides instant verification of the quality and safety of food and drinks before consumption. The device will connect to a smartphone and use machine learning and smart sensor technology to make near-infrared spectrometry’s food quality assessment capabilities affordable and available for daily use by consumers.Mandy Gang: Patients often waste money by redoing tests they have already been given. This occurs by the simple mistake of a patient or hospital not having an updated record of their medical history. Mandy aspires to develop a system that would allow patients to easily transport their medical records and avoid the hassle of filling out forms at hospitals.To join the conversation going at the Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network Summit in Cape Town next week, follow @DellInnovators and #DWEN. We welcome you to share your ideas for STEM-related businesses, powered by technology, below! According to the Women’s Engineering Society, only 9 percent of engineers are female, and the first step to changing that is putting technology in the hands of girls and getting them excited about it. At Dell, we are focused on increasing young people’s access to technology to prepare them for success in a 21st century, digital world.To help nurture the entrepreneurial spirit of young girls, Dell has partnered with Seventeen Magazine again this year to host a contest for girls age 12 – 16 to write about a business they would launch in the STEM field that could change the world. last_img read more

Enabling 5G Use Cases at the Edge

first_imgThe industry really can’t stop talking about the edge. In the interest of not starting a classic “edge” conversation with a definition, let’s focus very specifically about its role as a new business model for 5G. From a Telco perspective, 5G enables a whole range of new applications and services that will open the doors to new revenue streams and provide a path to differentiation.Aligning business outcomes to vertical industry requirements to operating models to technology enablers has become the foundation for how Dell Technologies is discussing the edge with our Telco customers and partners globally. For Telco, the “edge” is both a network architecture optimization intended to improve experiences over cellular, but also a key control point for the development of differentiated services.We talk about the edge as an enabler for 5G data-driven business models – real-time processing of data from “things” and devices, when the decisions need to be made quickly before the data loses relevance; but we also need to discuss how 5G is an enabler for the edge – bringing a disaggregated, cloud-native user-plane to allow applications and services to connect in closer proximity (and lower latency) to the “things” and devices. 5G and edge are symbiotes, even as both 5G and edge computing have use cases that are independent of each other.While there are a lot of unknowns still as to what the edge will look like (Physically, obviously. Virtually, it will materialize as containers on bare metal), one thing for sure is there are no two identical edge deployments. Many questions need to be answered when designing the edge including: what are the use cases that are going to justify the investment — operations-first (driven by network function) or business-first (driven by enterprise use-case)? What are the unique vertical industry requirements? How impactful will the edge be to service experience? How significant will operational savings be?Every situation is different –infrastructure at the edge is going to have to be very flexible to support a variety of use cases. The homogeneous infrastructure deployment model of public cloud – built with common building-blocks scaled within a rack, then within a row, then within the data center – gives way to a heterogenous infrastructure model at the edge. A key to success is to have a flexible set of deployment capabilities that can be customized to support the specific edge requirements including:Ability to use multiple accelerators in a shared platform. This requires a heterogenous infrastructure with industry-standard servers and storage-class memory powered by x86 and accelerated with GPUs, FPGAs, or Smart NICs. This capability will enable edge deployments to meet the complex requirements to support video streaming or edge transcoding or any other functionality that drive various acceleration requirement at the edge.Infrastructure with flexible form factors to fit in a variety of environments, use-cases, and performance requirements. Infrastructure deployed outside a controlled environment needs to be hardened for harsh or rugged environments. It needs to be in a dense form factor and short-depth to optimize for space constraints. The telco network edge is still defined as front-facing, short-depth, DC-powered, NEBS-certified, but that’s just one of many telco deployment models.Aligning to the architectures of the 5G Cloud Native and Virtualized Network functions is key, such as converging user plane functionality from the vEPC with RAN Central Unit (CU) and potentially with the RAN Distributed Unit (DU). This helps to simplify the overall network architecture, reduce the cost of deployment and enhance the customer experience by centralizing the 5G radios while distributing the vEPC functionality.Ability to easily perform remote management and automation, especially in lights-out, unmanned facilities. And to provide a set of APIs that allow that automation system to be integrated into service orchestration systems.This week, Dell Technologies announced a portfolio of solutions that support edge environments. The new PowerEdge XE2420 is specifically designed for the above requirements. Namely, the new Dell EMC PowerEdge XE2420 server:Delivers performance and seamless scaling with a low-latency, high-performing short-depth system with high configuration flexibility.Supports up to four accelerators and 92 terabytes of storage, bringing dense compute and storage to space-constrained environments.Brings simplified remote management, streaming telemetry and automation capabilities via iDRAC9, including support for Redfish.Ensures reliability in the harshest edge environments including being able to operate in harsh, non-datacenter environments and more rugged Telco Network Edge requirements.In addition to the PowerEdge XE2420, we’ve also refreshed the rugged PowerEdge XR2, a 1U, single-socket, shorter depth server that’s certified for telecom applications outside controlled environments. And we’re rolling out new Dell EMC Modular Data Center Micro 415, that provides a hardened, rugged edge data center with integrated power and cooling in an enclosure that fits in a parking space.We also continue to expand our set of ecosystem partners who validate, certify, integrate with, and leverage Dell Technologies’ infrastructure capabilities in both the telco core and edge. But more on that later…last_img read more

This concept came to market in 2014, when Dell introduced the industry’s first dense 1U four-GPU platform — the Dell EMC PowerEdge C4130 server.This legacy of innovation continued in the days that followed, and in 2016 Dell Technologies became the first OEM to support NVIDIA SXM2 technology. This technology, which is used in the NVIDIA Tesla V100 SXM2 GPU, enables high-speed, direct GPU-to-GPU communication via the NVIDIA NVLink interconnect.The following year, in 2017, Dell Technologies became the first vendor to support the NVIDIA Volta V100 GPU in a unique, balanced CPU-to-GPU dense platform — the Dell EMC PowerEdge C4140 server. This accelerator-optimized, high-density server is built to meet the demands of cognitive computing workloads in a 1U server format that supports four GPUs.In the years since, we have built on our strategic partnership to bring new Dell EMC Ready Solutions for AI to market. These offerings include Deep Learning with NVIDIA, a Dell EMC Ready Solution that provides a GPU‑optimized solution stack that helps organizations shave valuable time from deep learning projects. The Deep Learning with NVIDIA solution is built around NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs.Success storiesOver the years, the team of Dell Technologies and NVIDIA has had great success with our common customer base. Here’s a small sample of our mutual successes:We worked closely on a major expansion of the HPC5 supercomputer at Eni, an Italy-based integrated energy company. This system is based on 1,820 Dell EMC PowerEdge C4140 servers, each with four NVIDIA V100 Tensor Core GPUs and two 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors. With the performance of the HPC5 supercomputer, Eni’s scientists and engineers can use extremely sophisticated in-house algorithms to process subsoil data. Market leadershipIn developing products and solutions with NVIDIA, Dell Technologies builds on a broad and deep product portfolio that spans from best-in-class servers with the latest processing architectures to leading-edge storage and networking systems, all backed by expert services.In a sign of this leadership, Dell Technologies took the top spot in both server revenue and shipments in 2019, with 20.5 percent market share and 16.3 percent market share, respectively, according to Gartner. Meanwhile, Dell Technologies  maintains “a commanding market share lead” in high-performance storage, according to a 2019 report from Intersect360 Research. The firm noted that Dell Technologies also has the No. 1 revenue share position for storage for HPC applications and  is the overall leader in total HPC solutions revenue. Looking aheadToday, we’re excited about our opportunities to support the new NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU in systems, solutions and services that accelerate workloads, from edge to core to cloud, just as we support other NVIDIA GPU accelerators and technologies in a wide range of our offerings.This new GPU is designed to help users tackle some of the world’s toughest computing challenges. It delivers unprecedented acceleration at every scale for AI, data analytics and HPC. As the engine of the NVIDIA data center platform, A100 can efficiently scale up to thousands of GPUs, or it can be partitioned into isolated GPU instances to accelerate workloads of all sizes.NVIDIA reports that the A100 accelerates major deep learning frameworks and more than 700 HPC applications — and that’s one of the reasons why we at Dell Technologies are excited to incorporate this GPU in our portfolio for HPC, AI and data analytics.To learn moreFor a look at how the San Diego Supercomputer Center is capitalizing on NVIDIA GPUs in its new Expanse supercomputer from Dell Technologies, see the case study “Architecting for Mixed Workloads at Massive Scale.”last_img read more

Samsung scion Lee won’t appeal prison sentence for bribery

first_imgSEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Samsung scion Lee Jae-yong and prosecutors have decided not to appeal a court ruling that convicted him for bribing South Korea’s former president, confirming a prison term of two and a half years for the country’s most influential corporate leader. But Lee’s legal troubles aren’t over as he has been indicted separately on charges of other financial crimes related to a 2015 merger between two Samsung affiliates. The deal helped strengthen Lee’s control over Samsung’s corporate empire. The bribery allegation involving Lee was a key part of the 2016 corruption scandal that ousted Park Geun-hye from the presidency and sent her to prison. The case highlighted often-corrupt ties between the country’s family-owned conglomerates and politicians.last_img

South Dakota lawmakers revive bill decried by LGBTQ groups

first_imgPIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota Republican lawmakers have revived a proposed law that would have banned people from changing the sex designation on their birth certificates. A House committee earlier rejected the bill that LGBTQ advocates decried as an attack on transgender people. Republicans in the House forced the bill to be brought to a vote by the full House through a rarely used legislative procedure known as a “smoke out.” Bills that affect transgender people have become a perennial topic in the South Dakota legislature, although transgender advocates say they are making progress and are getting their voices heard.last_img
