Jerald Cogswell is a retired IT professional who is now an electronics, DSP, and artificial intelligence hobbyist. He is a self didact who is exploring methods of detecting sound direction and trying to solve the "cocktail party effect" for AI hearing. He worked for Xerox in Hawaii for 22 years and retired in his late 50s to the northwest forest of Montana in 2006. Before that he worked in the engineering department of Cessna Aircraft in 1980 to 1982 where he wrote programs for aircraft wing flutter analysis.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s recently announced plan to put an electric airplane in the air by 2018 is forward-looking, but hardly unique.
Engineers at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have achieved the ability to scale nanotechnology for the development of super-strong, lightweight metal materials.
Harvard researchers have identified a new class of high-performing organic molecules in the development of redox flow batteries for alternative-energy storage.
Researchers in the United Kingdom have found a sustainable way to derive hydrogen from grass to develop biofuel.
Without failure and loss, there is no success. Sadly, some failures and losses are greater than others. That’s certainly true of engineer and Space Race astronaut Gus Grissom.
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.
