Peter St. George believes he has discovered a better way to compress digital data. And now he's trying to find a way of implementing his mathematical breakthrough through a "BinaryAccelerator." The President of ZeoSync Corp. compresses data by reducing the expression of random information sequences. Existing compression technologies depend on mapping and encoding of redundant mathematical structures, which are limited in application to single-pass reduction. The current technologies that enable compression for data transmission and storage are limited to compression ratios of ten to one. But St. George expects compression ratios of a hundred to one when his BinaryAccelerator is fully developed. His approach involves the manipulation of binary information and includes advancement of fractals, wavelets, sub-band cooling, and acoustic compression. "By significantly reducing the size of data strings, we envision products that will reduce the cost of communication," says St. George. For more information, call ZeoSync at (561) 640-8464.
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
