09/06/2017 A Recipe For The Dream Career: In conversation With Jayesh Mahapatra

The quintessential computer geek and a machine learning enthusiast as he likes being called, Jayesh Mahapatra pursued his Bachelors in Computer Science and Engineering at VSSUT. A student of the Class of 2017, he is an inspiration to all given the esteemed foreign internship he bagged at CERN in the summer of 2016, and his high GRE scores as well as his plans for MS, abroad.

Excited to announce that I’ve accepted a research position this summer at NASA’s Frontier Development Lab in Mountain View, CA. I’ll be working alongside other scientists and engineers for eight weeks in an intensive research accelerator focused on artificial intelligence.
“Hosted by the SETI Institute and NASA Ames and supported by leaders in AI from the private sector, such as IBM, Nvidia, Autodesk and Miso Technologies, FDL brings together teams of experts in the physical sciences and specialists in data science and machine learning for an intense 8-week concentrated study on topics important to NASA – and to humanity’s future. The format encourages rapid iteration and prototyping to create outputs with meaningful application, papers and conference posters.”
My cohort’s particular focus is 3D shape modeling of near-earth objects, a topic closely related to my thesis on underwater 3D shape modeling.
18/05/2017 Students selected for 2017 CERN openlab Summer Student Programme

We would like to thank each of the 1580 students who applied to the CERN openlab Summer Student Programme. This year, 37 students have been selected from 22 different countries.

15/05/2017 My internship with Cern

Where will you intern: Starting June 19, I will intern at CERN, located in Geneva, Switzerland. CERN is the home of the hadron collider where the Higgs-Boson particle was discovered.

12/05/2017 After Discovering the Higgs Boson, CERN Integrates OpenStack with Kubernetes

The beauty of a scientific program, whether it be centered around a module orbiting the planet or a subatomic particle riding a narrow, ring-shaped corridor underground, is that it compels its participants to solve bigger problems in new and untried ways. The space program prompted NASA to create new ways to envision the way computers work. “Software” was a catch-phrase NASA engineers came up with to refer to digital programs that did the work of mechanisms. Shipping containers packed with servers outside Kennedy Space Center and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory became the seeds for the world’s first clouds.

05/05/2017 W jaki sposób CERN wykorzystuje OpenStack do obróbki 1 PB/s

Z Timem Bellem, liderem w dziale IT w Europejskiej Organizacji Badań Jądrowych CERN rozmawiamy o jednej z największych na świecie instalacji platformy OpenStack, z której korzysta 11 tys. fizyków, narzędziach do zarządzania nią, zarządzaniem dużymi zbiorami danych i wykorzystanych systemach pamięci masowych oraz współpracy ze społecznościami open source.

01/05/2017 My experience as an Openlab Summer Student at CERN – Part 2

This is second of the two posts where I write about my experience at CERN. Click here to read part 1, where I narrate a few incidents from my first month of internship.

01/05/2017 My experience as an Openlab Summer Student at CERN – Part 1

This is my third and final post in a series of blogs I have written to help students understand, apply to, and enjoy the Summer Student Programmes at CERN. In my first post in this series, I gave a short (sort of) description of the different Summer Student programmes at CERN and in the second one, I discussed some tips that I think might help students submit a good application and enjoy their time there (if selected). So, if you’re keen on learning about either of these subjects, check out the links. Also, I recently found out an excellent blog maintained by an Openlab Summer Student, Fatima Noor. It is a goldmine! Alright, let’s get started. I can’t promise that it will be a short post.

29/04/2017 Huawei на CeBIT 2017: путем цифровой трансформации

Компания Huawei приняла активное участие в выставке CeBIT 2017, которая проходила с 20 по 24 марта 2017 года в Ганновере (Германия). Она представила ИКТ-стратегии и решения под девизом «Быть в авангарде ИКТ-решений, идти путем цифровой трансформации». В павильоне С30 площадью более 3,5 тыс. кв. м Huawei представила свои

25/04/2017 Colliders, containers, dark matter: The CERN atom smasher's careful cloud revolution

CERN made headlines with the discovery by physicists in 2012 of the Higgs boson, paving the way to a breakthrough in our understanding of how fundamental particles interact.
