Mint and Rocket Mortgage Reveal New Technology to Foster the Next Generation of Financial Empowerment

SAN DIEGO and DETROIT, Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Today, financial empowerment app Mint by Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU), and Rocket Companies (NYSE: RKT), announced a first-of-its kind partnership in which Rocket Mortgage – the first fully digital mortgage experience – is now integrated into the Mint app via API to create a fast, simplified refinance experience for homeowners.

As part of this integration, Mint users are able to pre-fill information such as current mortgage information that they’ve added to their Mint profile. They are then able to seamlessly search for, apply and lock-in mortgage refinance rates with Rocket Mortgage in as few as eight minutes, instead of days or weeks – all powered by the Rocket Mortgage API. This is the first time the Rocket Mortgage experience has been directly integrated into a personal finance platform.

OSU alumna honored for work in science and technology | News

STILLWATER – Oklahoma State University alumna and Cherokee Nation citizen Dr. Cara Cowan Watts will be recognized Saturday with the Ely S. Parker Award, the highest honor awarded by the American Indian Science and Engineering Society.

Watts will receive the award during the American Indian Science and Engineering Society national conference – which is being held virtually – for her contributions and achievements in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

“I believe our tribal nations and Oklahoma both win when STEM careers and degrees are valued and embraced by more people rather than fewer,” she said.

Cowan Watts has followed her own advice. The three-time OSU graduate earned her bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering in 1997, a master’s degree in telecommunications management in 2002, and a doctorate in biosystems engineering in 2015.

In 2001, she and her brother, Brett, established a scholarship fund for Native American engineering students in their parents’

Why The Recent Zoom Crash Is Evidence Of A Remote Technology Boom

Simple, slick and easy-to-implement, Zoom was primed to fill the gap and urgent needs of emerging remote demands. The video conferencing tool has since exploded in popularity, leading the pack of IT tools adopted in the pandemic and becoming an integral part of businesses, schools and conferences.

Despite it’s fast rise to the top, hardly a day passes without at least one mention of Zoom in the news. The company has faced security issues, including having meetings hijacked in attacks called “Zoom-bombings.” More recently, Zoom made headlines because of a sustained outage that caused massive disruption for its users. On the morning of August 24th, 2020, students, teachers and professors around the world were unable to connect for their first day of remote classes, derailed by a Zoom outage that lasted nearly four hours. The incident caused serious headaches and raised serious red flags from users Zoom technology

Renewable Technology Will Take Starring Role As Energy Recovers From Covid-19

The global energy system is in a state of upheaval, thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has “caused more disruption than any other event in recent history, leaving scars that will last for years to come,” says the International Energy Agency (IEA) in its latest World Energy Outlook (WEO).

“But whether this upheaval ultimately helps or hinders efforts to accelerate clean energy transitions and reach international energy and climate goals will depend on how governments respond to today’s challenges,” the report adds, suggesting that the next decade will be pivotal to both recovering from the current crisis and to tackling climate change.

Global energy demand is set to drop by 5% in 2020, with energy-related CO2 emissions down by 7% and investment in the sector 18% lower than the previous year as the pandemic-induced lockdowns around the world depress economic activity. Global energy

Army partners with University of Illinois on autonomous drone swarm technology

Army researchers are working with the University of Illinois Chicago on unmanned technology for recharging drone swarms.

The university has been awarded a four-year, $8 million cooperative agreement “to develop foundational science in two critical propulsion and power technology areas for powering future families of unmanned aircraft systems,” according to a statement released by the Army Research Laboratory.

“This collaborative program will help small battery-powered drones autonomously return from military missions to unmanned ground vehicles for recharging,” the Army added. “The university is developing algorithms to enable route planning for multiple teams of small unmanned air and ground vehicles.”

ARMY DEVELOPING DRONES THAT CAN CHANGE SHAPE MID-FLIGHT

The military is looking to make the process of recharging vast drone swarms as efficiently as possible by using fast, recharging batteries and wireless power transfer technologies. This, researchers say, will let multiple drones to hover over an unmanned ground vehicle and recharge

Superconductor technology for smaller, sooner fusion

Superconductor technology for smaller, sooner fusion
The assembly designed for the third SULTAN cable test features two 3-meter VIPER HTS cables in parallel and connected with a copper joint at the bottom; cryogenic helium and electrical current are injected at the top.once installed in SULTAN. The outer superstructure provides structural support to react the enormous lateral electromechanical body loads generated within the cables during testing. A unique aspect of this design, provided by the materials and the trapezoidal extension at the mid-plane, is the ability to axial strain the cables during testing to better replicate the conditions that would be experienced by VIPER cableswithin a high-field magnet.

Scientists have long sought to harness fusion as an inexhaustible and carbon-free energy source. Within the past few years, groundbreaking high-temperature superconductor technology (HTS) sparked a new vision for achieving practical fusion energy. This approach, known as the high-field pathway to fusion, aims to generate fusion

GE Healthcare Introduces New Edge Technology Designed to Give Clinicians Rapid Access to Critical Data

  GE Healthcare Introduces New Edge Technology Designed to Give Clinicians
  Rapid Access to Critical Data

Business Wire

CHICAGO -- October 14, 2020

GE Healthcare today introduced Edison HealthLink, new edge computing
technology designed specifically for the needs of healthcare providers, that
allows clinicians to collect, analyze and act upon critical data closer to its
source. With 10 applications already available through Edison HealthLink –
including TrueFidelity image reconstruction, Mural Virtual Care and CT Smart
Subscription – the solution gives healthcare providers another entry point
into the Edison ecosystem.

While COVID-19 has accelerated the adoption of cloud technology, analyzing
data from a distance can pose various risks to operational efficiency and
patient care. Concerns around bandwidth, network and latency challenges remain
when a matter of seconds could determine the outcome for a patient. For
example, time is critical when diagnosing and treating stroke—around 2 million
brain cells die every minute^1 until
