The first floor provides particularly unique opportunities, with a focus on emerging technologies, including 3D, augmented and virtual reality and a holographic theater.

“We are literally only limited by our own imaginations on what we can do,” said Sharon Medcalf, an assistant professor in the College of Public Health.

Medcalf explained, they can train people for once in a lifetime events such as a mass casualty triage by using technology like the simulation cave.

“What I can do as a faculty member using the technology in this building is create that environment of an event, and then put that first responder in that immersive environment and test his or her critical thinking skills,” she said.

Medcalf also said staff are using the holographic theater to capture speakers and presentations and preserve them for future learners in lifelike form.

“We’re designing an activity that will be based around the hologram of an expert, that we have on campus today, that we may not have on campus that same person 5-10 years from now,” she said.

Getting the health care focused content to go with all this tech wasn’t so easy. The center hired its own team to create it, with employees coming from gaming, graphic design, web development and more.

Emerging iDER Platforms Remain Key To Our Energy Future

By: Peter Asmus

Due to climate change, organizations and governments are navigating the energy transformation that is already underway. Technology advances and evolving market rules such as the recent US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Order No. 2222 require new approaches to integrating distributed energy resources (DER) with the grid. The key to value creation lies in the ways these DER assets are integrated into onsite energy networks to bolster resiliency and foster sustainability. It also requires innovative business models that recognize previously hidden value for end users and stakeholders across the broader energy system.

A fundamental rethink of strategy and planning as well as organization and system operations that embrace DER networks will be needed for a successful transformation. The result should be an energy system better attuned to evolving demand and customer needs and more compatible with a rapidly changing policy and regulatory environment.

That’s the big picture and the fundamental premises underlying Guidehouse Insights’ overarching concept of the Energy Cloud. But what do these generalizations mean when getting down to the details as rapid change sweeps through our energy, mobility, and urban infrastructure? The value of DER assets can only be realized fully if they are integrated into markets, customer sites, and the grid in a way that creates shared value. Most use cases for DER support electrification goals and focus on behind-the-meter applications such as onsite power generation, but they do not support the larger grid network or incumbent utility suppliers.

5 Emerging Enterprise Network Trends To Watch In 2021

The New Networking

COVID-19 has changed daily life for millions across the globe, but it also upended entire industries in 2020, from hospitality and retail to medicine and technology. The networking space, for better or for worse, was no exception.

It’s safe to say that teleworking isn’t going anywhere, and vendors are making adjustments to their portfolios to enable remote networking and right-size offerings such as SD-WAN, especially for small to midsize companies. On the plus side, the demand for edge networking offerings is going through the roof as businesses demand compute and storage at the edge to empower brand-new use cases that perhaps no one was expecting at the start of this year, such as outdoor connectivity in unusual places. Those use cases will continue to pick up steam heading into next year as solution providers become more well-versed in the new and creative ways they can enable and please their end users.

From the increasing focus on IoT and edge networking in a COVID-19 world, to the rise of 5G and teleworking, here are five enterprise network trends that we predict will flourish in 2021.

Tech Leaders Share Emerging Industry Trends With Newswire’s EMA GT Market Builder

NEW YORK – October 13, 2020 – ( Newswire.com )

​Artificial intelligence, 5G network connectivity, and automation all have one thing in common. These pioneering technologies will likely be incorporated into every major industry over the next few years, especially as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to present challenges for corporations, schools, retailers, and entertainment venues heading into 2021. Executives whose companies have successfully implemented these technologies into their hardware or software are able to promote their integration with Newswire’s Earned Media Advantage Guided Tour Market Builder

According to Forbes contributing editor Bernard Marr, the COVID-19 pandemic may actually act as a catalyst for a host of changes that were on track to occur regardless of the ongoing health crisis. As Marr states, this reality may have been in the cards for the U.S. thanks to the increasingly digital lifestyles that Americans have embraced. 

“Having the ability to reach a wider audience is crucial both now in Q4 and in Q1 of 2021,” said Charlie Terenzio, Newswire’s VP Earned Media Advantage Business. “There is a serious opportunity for companies to ride the V shape recovery as the American people will continue to rely heavily on consumer technology throughout the duration of this health crisis, which presents an additional opportunity from an investor standpoint.
