Over the last century and a half, wireless communication has continued to evolve, enabling mobile phones, widespread sensors, global positioning systems and the development of a digitally-connected world.
In my interview with Errol, we discussed the origins of the National Science Foundation Innovation Corps (I-Corps), how and why it was created, and how it changed the way the government commercializes scientific research.
I forecast that both string and quantum gravity theories will be dead by 2017.
For us Americans, it is unthinkable for General Motors to investigate gravity modification, and here was Honda in the 1990s, at that, researching this topic.
Rand Paul knows that if he can get voters to resent scientific research as much as they resent minorities and poor people, then he and his fellow Republicans will be free to ignore inconvenient facts about climate change, population trends, and other data that goes against the Republican agenda.
A year ago Don Millard of the National Science Foundation (who in a previous life had been a STEM Educator) approached me
France A. Córdova is the director of the National Science Foundation (NSF), which is responsible for advancing scientific
We believe that a much more efficient commercialization process recognizes that 1) there needs to be a separate, parallel
The Obama administration and the scientific community at large are expressing serious alarm at a House Republican bill that they argue would dramatically undermine way research is conducted in America.
Titled the “Frontiers in Innovation, Research, Science, and Technology (FIRST) Act of 2014," the bill would put a variety
Cherry-picking grants awarded by the National Science Foundation is not an effective use of time or money. Investment in scientific research has never been more important than the present.
We must bridge the gap between the science we value and where we are now. We know that education is the starting place -- improving science education in the schools, and improving access to higher education for all. It's not enough, however.
Here are examples of ongoing National Science Foundation-funded brain research that runs the gamut from discoveries about the brains of dinosaurs and birds to research involving Alzheimer's and beyond.
Lessons Learned The U.S. government has built an accelerator for scientists and engineers It's scaled across the U.S. The
Already, according to VOXII, an independent news source, "there's a new national movement aiming to add an A--as in arts
Specifically they stated: "We believe providing the skills that art and design give students will prepare them for the workforce
We strongly encourage Congress to support restoring full funding to the National Science Foundation's political science program. It makes an enormous difference to scholars, their students, and, ultimately, anyone who cares about the functioning of their government.
The peer review system, even with its innate imperfections, is an essential arbiter of scientific quality and integrity.
A politician who proposes politicizing a jury would rightly be pilloried by the court of public opinion and should never hold political office again. And yet the chairman of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee, Rep. Lamar Smith, has been proposing to do this to scientists.
“The NSF has great potential to promote American innovation and expand our economy," Smith said. "When the NSF only has enough
