You May Have Seen My Face on BART — The Coffeelicious. You May Have Seen My Face on BART Hi, my name is Isis.
I’m a full-stack engineer at OneLogin. They asked me to be one of four others participating recruiting campaign that was hastily planned and executed in 1 day. I was not personally ready for the amount of attention that it has brought me. Innorobo: Hardware, software and makers together! Digital Agenda sur Twitter : "50 stories from 50 Most Inspiring Women in European Tech. #GirlsinICT Day @Inspiringfifty. Meet The Fifty Most Inspiring Women In European Tech - Inspiring fifty. The Inspiring Fifty: Europe initiative follows the tremendous success of the prior year’s Inspiring Fifty: Netherlands, a search to identify and showcase that country’s fifty most inspiring women in technology and business.
Throughout 2014, Inspiring Fifty asked its extended network of professionals, journalists, and social media followers to nominate those women serving as role models and standing as an inspiration to others. What came back was an amazing list of women from across the technology spectrum, including entrepreneurs, business leaders, academicians, and policy makers. “The response was simply tremendous; we were overwhelmed by the calibre, breadth, and diversity of the nominees,” stated Russell Buckley, one of the members of the organisation’s judging panel.

New campaign could turn technology into a women's human rights issue. The Global Fund for Women recently launched a worldwide online media campaign called IGNITE to make internet access and STEM education for women human rights issues.
We live in a world where access to everything -- healthcare, education, politics and economics -- is often determined by our access to the internet and technology. That access bridges many gaps, from geographical to socioeconomic, allowing people from around the globe in any circumstance to contribute information. But we also live in a world where women are not afforded the same access to technology as men. Women are less likely to own cell phones or computers, and they are much less likely, in the US and abroad, to be in STEM careers or high-paying leadership roles.
A report by the United Nations' Broadband Commission Working Group showed that 200 million more men have access to the internet than women -- 41% of men worldwide compared to 37% of women. Witter / ?

I am not an engineer, not a physicist, so what do I do to deserve this award? I believe in open innovation, I believe in collaborative ecosystem and I believe a new technology is worthless if it doesn’t have a positive impact on our economy or society. I believe as well (and hopefully, we are numerous in the world to share that belief) that robotics technologies can help us solve some societal challenges, such as quality of life in megacities, autonomy of the aging population, energy savings, and so much more.

Un concours de sciences et technologies à destination des lycées : Science Factor ! Science Factor, c’est un concours national qui vise à promouvoir les filières scientifiques et à susciter des vocations auprès des jeunes et notamment des jeunes filles – sujet qui me tient particulièrement à coeur !
Du coup, il était naturel pour moi de devenir partenaire blog de cet évènement. Dis sans détour : ces prochaines semaines, les news vont fleurir au sujet de Science Factor ! Ce qui est miracle, car les fleurs en hiver…. bref, je m’égare. Notons que Science Factor est soutenu par le ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche, et organisé en partenariat avec Orange, l’Inserm et la Fondation Manpower. Pour l’édition 2015 de Science Factor, les équipes de lycéens ont la possibilité de présenter le produit ou le service qu’elles rêvent d’inventer.

Hopping robots could conserve energy. A new study shows that jumping can be much more complicated than it might seem.
In research that could extend the range of future rescue and exploration robots, scientists have found that hopping robots could dramatically reduce the amount of energy they use by adopting a unique two-part "stutter jump. " Taking a short hop before a big jump could allow spring-based "pogo-stick" robots to reduce their power consumption as much as ten-fold.
The formula for the two-part jump was discovered by analyzing nearly 20,000 jumps made by a simple laboratory robot under a wide range of conditions. "If we time things right, the robot can jump with a tenth of the power required to jump to the same height under other conditions," said Daniel Goldman, an assistant professor in the School of Physics at the Georgia Institute of Technology. "In the stutter jumps, we can move the mass at a lower frequency to get off the ground. The research was reported October 26 in the journal Physical Review Letters.
