Jacqueline Chen PANEL “Unleashing the Power of Computing and Data at Scale”

– So welcome, I think we have an exciting panel today. At Purdue we like to do things at scale. So today we’re going to talk, our panel is going to discuss compute and data at scale, how can we unleash the power of this technology. I’ll start by introducing briefly our panelists and then we’ll jump in. So we have our distinguished visitor from Sandia national labs, Dr. Jackie Chen.

SCIENCE!: Kite-Surfing in the Stratosphere

>>WHAT WE’RE DOING IS LOOKING AT ESSENTIALLY A TWIST ON THAT. THE CONCEPT HERE INVOLVES TWO SOLAR AIRPLANES WHICH ARE CONNECTED AND THEY USE THE PRINCIPLES OF SAILING TO AVOID USING PROPULSION AND STAY ALOFT.>>WELL HERE WE HAVE THE FIRST AIRPLANE OF THE DUAL AIRCRAFT PLATFORM PROJECT. WE’VE NICKNAMED IT “T1” FOR “TEST ONE”. THIS AIRPLANE WILL EVENTUALLY BECOME THE SAIL OR THE UPPER AIRCRAFT. THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS AIRPLANE AND STOCK AIRPLANE IS THE CONTROLLER SETUP THAT YOU

But in my research, I’m interested in the dynamics of what the line is doing, whether it be a kite or a tethered balloon, offshore oil and gas platform underwater. There’s cable dynamics in lots of different engineering systems, anything with cable moving around in the sky. You have changing tension along the line. You can get things like travelling
