‘Leadership’- The Actions Beyond Designations – A Dell Perspective

American author John C. Maxwell accurately defined a leader as someone who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way. Leaders are the ones who bring change and shape the future. They are the ones who guide us and make crucial decisions that accelerate different organizations and the world as a whole. To narrate an average day of a leader, we need to incorporate lengthy to-do lists, resolving instant report crisis, guiding the team members, impromptu team meets…

Application-specific hardware accelerators – Facebook Code

Facebook’s infrastructure now serves more than 2.7 billion people each month across our family of apps and services. Our engineers design and build advanced and efficient systems to scale our infrastructure, but as our workloads grow, the systems cannot be served by traditional general-purpose processors alone. Transistor scaling has slowed significantly, necessitating the development of specialized accelerators and holistic system-level solutions to improve performance, power, and efficiency. Creating efficient solutions for our infrastructure will require workload-optimized hardware, created through co-design…

Space tech poised to make air travel greener and more efficient

Iris: programme for satellite communications for air traffic management. Credit: European Space Agency Passengers travelling through busy airports should soon face fewer delays and have a lower environmental impact, thanks to efforts to use airspace more efficiently. The Iris programme seeks to equip aircraft with satellite-based data communication links to help pilots and air traffic controllers to use the shortest and fastest routes, boosting productivity, saving fuel and reducing environmental pollution. Funded by the European Space Agency in collaboration…

Chemical Engineering World: A Great Surprise!

I accept this recognition 🙂 I received an email last week congratulating me because my blog has been selected as the Top 10 Chemical Engineering Blogs in the internet. The email came from Feedspot.com. I am not really aware of what is Feedspot but they have somehow acknowledged my Chemical Engineering World blog. Thanks Feedspot. Then I checked the link that they sent to me and saw the top 10 listed blogs and websites. I was very shocked to see that…

Tips for Success – Airbnb Engineering & Data Science – Medium

In this post I provide advice for junior data scientists as they onboard onto data and product teams at Airbnb. You’re a new data scientist – congrats! If you are a junior data scientist in your first data role, you should be asking yourself, ‘How can I effectively execute?’ This post will focus on that execution. It is intended primarily for data scientists embedded in product teams, but many of the tips can be generalized to any new hire in…

Employee resource groups aren’t the answer, but they’re a first step

Why employee resource groups are important for building a great company culture but they’re not enough. Diversity and inclusion is a process. To achieve diversity and inclusion, it’s not enough to hire diverse candidates. Once hired, we must be welcomed by a safe and belonging culture, and our diverse perspectives must be honored by our coworkers. Too many times we are approached by well-meaning companies eager to hire diverse candidates, only to look behind the curtain and discover a company…

The Hackability of Autonomous Vehicles

With autonomous vehicles being tested all around the world, drivers must prepare for the inevitable reality that soon there will many autonomous vehicles on the road. This raises concerns about the safety of such vehicles and whether they are actually safer than traditional vehicles. One of the biggest fears is that an autonomous vehicle could be hacked and used to either intentionally kill the passengers or as a weapon against another individual or group of individuals. This is certainly a…

Researchers identify role sex-biased protein may play in autism — ScienceDaily

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire are one step closer to helping answer the question of why autism is four times more common in boys than in girls after identifying and characterizing the connection of certain proteins in the brain to autism spectrum disorders (ASD). “Our study is the first to look at the [sex]-biased regulation of proteins in the brain and how they may play a role in affecting abnormal changes in the body that results in autism,”…

Engineering Ethics Blog: Ignoring the Experts: Autism and Vaccinations

By necessity, engineers are experts in their professional field compared to the public at large.  And as we’ve discussed many times before, expertise confers both privileges and responsibilities.  Most of the time, engineers and other experts who inform the general public about questions of interest find that the public at least listens to them, and usually takes what they say seriously.  But not always.  And when expert advice and information is ignored, we have to go beyond strict logic and…

#BalanceforBetter: International Women’s Day Engineer Spotlight, Part 1

Editor’s note: March 8 marks International Women’s Day (IWD), a day to recognize the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. Within the engineering team at LinkedIn, we’re observing the day by recognizing the contributions of a few of our female and non-binary engineers. In this two-part series, we’ll spotlight their work, as well as some of the lessons they’ve learned during their career journeys.   At LinkedIn, we’re firm believers that the different experiences and backgrounds our engineers…
