Supercomputers are used for everything from forecasting weather to modeling the human brain.

What sets supercomputers apart is the size and difficulty of the tasks they can tackle and solve, said Jack Wells, director of science at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee.

COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING
Supercomputing requires math, thinking skills, algebra and computational thinking and an awareness of gateways to computing. New technologies require rethinking the use of technology Cyberlearning does that for transformational learning.

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

TKP courseware is being used around the world. We have personally taught over 2,000 kids to code with our courseware. The CSTA asked us to present at their national conference several years ago and they gave us rave reviews.

Artificial intelligence cannot replicate human consciousness, say Irish researchers in new study.

 

In a recently published paper, "Is Consciousness Computable? Quantifying Integrated Information Using Algorithmic Information Theory," Phil Maguire, co-director of the BSc degree in computational thinking at National University of Ireland, Maynooth, and his co-authors demonstrate that, within the model of consciousness proposed by Giulio Tononi, the integrated information in our brains cannot be modeled by computers.

Discovering pieces for connecting and developing the Internet of Things — Medium | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

Last year I started to explore the possibilities of connecting devices to the Internet (Internet of things, makers, …) and I have been amazed by the number of technologies available that change the traditional game of Web based Development. I will try to share some of the pieces of SW + HW + Services that I have found interesting.
