The footwear collection is designed based on Slack’s color palette — blue, red, lemon, and green — on Cole Haan’s bright white sneakers.

“Cole Haan, with a little help from Slack, is able to completely rewrite the rules for modern-day footwear,” said Julie Liegl, chief marketing officer at Slack, in a statement.

“Collaboration is key to bringing any product to life, and it’s especially rewarding when it’s a product we can physically see.”

The Slack-styled footwear is part of Cole Haan’s Generation Zerogrand brand, known for its modern and casual silhouette. 

The sneakers, priced at $120, are available on Cole Haan’s website and at select international stores starting Wednesday.

SEIPI, Malaysian counterparts to collaborate on sci-tech center

The Semiconductor and Electronics Industries in the Philippines Foundation, Inc. (SEIPI) said Friday it is collaborating with Malaysian industry associations to set up a science and technology center in the Philippines.

“We have met with several Malaysian organizations. The first one is SFAM (Semiconductor Fabrication Association of Malaysia),” SEIPI President Danilo C. Lachica said at an online conference.

He said the Malaysian group has agreed to help SEIPI with its plan to set up a science and technology center “to move the Philippines’ electronics industry up the value chain.”

“We will set up meetings with SFAM members and hopefully develop a memorandum of agreement on collaborative activities,” he added.

Mr. Lachica said the science and technology center is part of the industry’s road map funded by the Trade department and administered by the Science and Technology department.

“It’s called Product and Technology Holistic Strategy (PATHS)… We are looking for funding

Intel and Sandia National Labs Collaborate on Neuromorphic Computing

What’s New: Today, Intel Federal LLC announced a three-year agreement with Sandia National Laboratories (Sandia) to explore the value of neuromorphic computing for scaled-up computational problems. Sandia will kick off its research using a 50-million neuron Loihi-based system that was delivered to its facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This work with Loihi will lay the foundation for the later phase of the collaboration, which is expected to include continued large-scale neuromorphic research on Intel’s upcoming next-generation neuromorphic architecture and the delivery of Intel’s largest neuromorphic research system to date, which could exceed more than 1 billion neurons in computational capacity.

NTT Research and University of Notre Dame Collaborate to Explore Continuous-Time Analog Computing

PALO ALTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NTT Research, Inc., a division of NTT (TYO:9432), today announced that it has reached an agreement with the University of Notre Dame to conduct joint research between its Physics and Informatics (PHI) Lab and the University’s Department of Physics. The five-year agreement covers research to be undertaken by Dr. Zoltán Toroczkai, a professor of theoretical physics, on the limits of continuous-time analog computing. Because the Coherent Ising Machine (CIM), an optical device that is key to the PHI Lab’s research agenda, exhibits characteristics related to those of analog computers, one purpose of this project is to explore avenues for improving CIM performance.

The three primary fields of the PHI Lab include quantum-to-classical crossover physics, neural networks and optical parametric oscillators. The work with Dr. Toroczkai addresses an opportunity for tradeoffs in the classical domain between analog computing performance and controllable variables with arbitrarily high precision.
