Through startup the "Malkuta Project," NCSU student Nate Myers hopes to give students a chance to work on real multimedia projects for real clients. Think of it as a sort of workforce development program in the arts.
A new federally backed high-tech hub to be hosted at N.C. State will have a mission of addressing worker skills as well as adoption costs for new technology. The Obama Administration named NCSU as the host of a southeast hub for the new Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new technique that improves the ability of computer vision technologies to better identify and separate objects in an image, a process called segmentation.
N.C. State will serve as the southeast hub for a new $140 million-plus Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute being announced today by President Obama.
Researchers have developed a technique for coating polymer implants with a bioactive film that significantly increases bonding between the implant and surrounding bone in an animal model. The advance could significantly improve the success rate of such implants, which are often used in spinal surgeries.
A big crowd gathers in Durham to see, hear and check out the latest in wearables technology. As the Internet of Things continues to grow, NCRIoT's event shows just how much hype is turning into reality. Matthew Davis, co-founder of NCRIoT, reports for WRAL TechWire.
Researchers have developed an integrated, wearable system that monitors a user's environment, heart rate and other physical attributes with the goal of predicting and preventing asthma attacks. The researchers plan to begin testing the system on a larger subject population this summer.
