Quotes

Your body is a "microbial ecosystem,” but it’s made up of other small ecosystems. “Your gut microbiome is quite different from the microbiome that is in your hand; your hand microbiome is quite different from the microbiome that lives in your nose or on your face; your mouth is different from your elbow, etc.,” Gilbert explains. “I could tell if your feet were interacting with the floor or your hands were interacting with the door knobs,” he continues. “It’s really helping us to identify the transmission routes by which bacteria get into our body.”"
"These findings are very important because we can now begin to parameterize models, and begin to develop theories on the material response. This information, along with a complete theory, will inform us on where and when energy is absorbed, which may inform us if we can do a better job of managing it to create greater retardation of penetration, i e., better armor" Zellner said
...challenges," said Brenna Berman, Commissioner of Department of Innovation and Technology (DoIT) and Chief Information Officer, City of Chicago. "It is an important step in allowing the Chicago data ecosystem to create data-driven tools to inspire their analysis of our City."
"New data sources are catalyzing new applications and services, changing the way that citizens can interact with the built environment, city government, and one another. Charlie Catlett is a Senior Computer Scientist at Argonne National Laboratory and a Senior Fellow at the Computation Institute, a joint initiative of Argonne and the University of Chicago. Within the Computation Institute, he is Director of the Urban Center for Computation and Data. Charlie will talk about how he and his colleagues are using high-performance computing, data analytics, and embedded systems to better understand and design cities."
