Mechanics Online - Free Physics Course Mechanics Online is designed as a second course in Introductory Newtonian Mechanics. The summer 2013 course is intended for teachers, advanced high school students, and curious and dedicated individuals who have some familiarity with introductory mechanics. The RELATE course is more challenging than a standard high school or introductory college physics offering. We assume that you already know F=ma, and concentrate on giving you a global view of mechanics that combines with a systematic procedure for solving challenging problems – especially those involving several concepts at once. Mechanics is the study of how forces change motion. Newton’s Law F=ma leads rigorously to concepts like momentum, torque, work, and energy.

Five key datacentre trends for 2013 Businesses need to carefully consider their approach to datacentres in 2013 if they want to maximise their returns, according to analyst firm IDC. IDC research director Donna Taylor told the Data Centre World conference in London that new technologies continue to refine, enhance, and complicate data centre design and operation. The technologies in particular include cloud, big data, solid state drives (SSDs), converged systems and automation. Cloud IDC is seeing increasing adoption of public, private and hybrid cloud across EMEA, said Taylor, adding that this was partly down to the fact that businesses were less worried about cloud security than they were in previous years.

Data Mining Your Desktop Unsocial networking: HP’s Collective Project mines documents to visualize how one employee is connected to colleagues. Social networks like Facebook and Twitter work well because people enjoy sharing their lives with friends. At the office, however, social networking with colleagues can feel forced. Many businesses are adopting social-networking tools in hopes of fostering collaboration, but if employees don’t sign up or participate, the effort fails. To get around this problem, HP Labs has created a workplace social network that builds itself. The Web application, dubbed the Collective Project, tracks internal documents created or opened by about 10,000 Hewlett-Packard employees.

For Beginners Welcome! Are you completely new to programming? If not then we presume you will be looking for information about why and how to get started with Python. iPad Course Niki Kittur Devices in hand, a group of students lucky enough to get into one of Carnegie Mellon University's newest classes are already hard at work. They are learning the art of iPad programming. But they aren't the only ones. The class lectures are available for free at Carnegie Mellon University on iTunes U — bringing the top-notch instruction of CMU's Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII) to learners far and wide. Co-taught by CMU Assistant Professor Niki Kittur and a team of top industry developers, this project-based course will focus on the design and implementation of iPad applications that help users visualize and make sense of large data sets.

Data Mining This program is not longer being offered. Please see Analytics for Data Science or Programming for Data Science. The Institute offers 100+ courses in statistics and analytics; this particular certificate program focuses on those courses relevant for the study of topics in data analytics (data mining, predictive modeling, forecasting and more). Most courses are 4 weeks long, do not require you to be online at specific times during the week, and offer continuing education credits.

Big Data Beyond MapReduce: Google's Big Data Papers Mainstream Big Data is all about MapReduce, but when looking at real-time data, limitations of that approach are starting to show. In this post, I’ll review Google’s most important Big Data publications and discuss where they are (as far as they’ve disclosed). MapReduce, Google File System and Bigtable: the mother of all big data algorithms Chronologically the first paper is on the Google File System from 2003, which is a distributed file system. Basically, files are split into chunks which are stored in a redundant fashion on a cluster of commodity machines (Every article about Google has to include the term “commodity machines”!) Next up is the MapReduce paper from 2004.

Is your connected car spying on you? 4 November 2014Last updated at 19:09 ET By Matthew Wall Business reporter, BBC News As our cars become more connected, do they pose more of a threat to our privacy? Modern cars are morphing into mobile data centres - connected, clever and packed full of sensors. But are they also becoming spies in our drives? As they record almost every aspect of our journeys and driving behaviour, interacting with our smartphone apps and sat-nav systems, who will own all the data they generate, how will it be used, and will our privacy inevitably be compromised?
