Big data, a new science festival & the world’s most instrumented building (Virginia Tech Magazine)

The Spring 2015 issue of Virginia Tech is online and has been mailed to more than 200,000 alumni, friends and supporters.

My contributions include a collaboration with Madeleine Gordon that provides an overview of Virginia Tech’s big data initiatives, including how researchers are predicting world events using open-source information; a look at the 241 accelerometers within Goodwin Hall, Tech’s new engineering building, and how they might be used in the future; and a review of Virginia Tech’s involvement in the inaugural Virginia Science Festival.

You can read the entire issue at the Virginia Tech Magazine website.
