CYBERSECURITY

Interop speaker: To combat government snooping, encrypt data before putting it in cloud
InformationWeek
Using cloud services allows your organization to hand off "the basic blocking and tackling" of securing an infrastructure, but it also allows a cloud service provider to hand your organization's data to the government, said Elad Yoran, CEO of Security Growth Partners and an advisory board member for Vaultive, at the Interop conference. The solution, he said, is to make sure that the only data a cloud provider can give the government is complete gibberish.

How big data is fueling a new age in space exploration
VentureBeat
In 2018, a group of organizations from all of the world will begin construction of the largest radio telescope ever built, the Square Kilometre Array. With 1 million square meters of collecting area and enough optical fiber to wrap around the Earth twice, this marvel of modern engineering will be sensitive enough to detect airport radar on a planet 50 light years away. SKA will also generate 700 terabytes of data every second, equivalent to roughly 35 times the data stored in the Library of Congress. At full capacity, the SKA's aperture arrays are expected to produce 100 times more data than the entire Internet.

Can big data tell us what clinical trials don't?
The New York Times
When a helicopter rushed a 13-year-old girl showing symptoms suggestive of kidney failure to Stanford's Packard Children's Hospital, Jennifer Frankovich was the rheumatologist on call. She and a team of other doctors quickly diagnosed lupus, an autoimmune disease. But as they hurried to treat the girl, Frankovich thought that something about the patient's particular combination of lupus symptoms — kidney problems, inflamed pancreas and blood vessels — rang a bell. In the past, she'd seen lupus patients with these symptoms develop life-threatening blood clots.

STEM education: 3 of the best online engineering resources for kids
Cool Mom Tech
Julie Marsh, a mom of three and a project manager by trade, writes: "I was once a struggling engineering student, so I have a special appreciation for the courage and creativity of kids who really want to know how stuff works and aren't afraid to jump in and figure it out. Now that one of my own kids is convinced she wants to be an engineer when she grows up, I've been digging for resources to help her explore her interests. Because honestly, gears, circuits, and programming still kind of scare me."

Why your team needs rookies
Harvard Business Review
Hiring managers often view newcomers to their organizations as not only long-term assets but also short-term burdens: people who need to be inducted, trained and given lighter loads as they get up to speed, inevitably slowing everyone else down. But that doesn't have to be the case. In research, studying how inexperienced people tackle tough challenges, it has been consistently found that rookies are surprisingly strong performers.
