Top 10 wicked cool algorithms

A round up of interesting algorithms and look at how they impact your community.

Argonne National Laboratory researchers have developed a computer algorithm that uses a technique of data assimilation and the Ensemble Adjustment Kalman Filter (EAKF) algorithm to quickly and accurately assimilate biological data into climate models to generate more reliable forecasts. Because of the high stakes involved in meeting air-quality targets, scientists, city officials and regulators all want a more accurate way not only to measure air quality but also to predict where pollution "hot spots" will occur and plan for additional control strategies. For example, when air-quality monitors and environmental regulators inspect the pollution levels of cities, the difference of one or two parts per million in the concentration of pollutants like ozone and carbon monoxide can mean the difference between achieving a target and having to implement additional costly provisions to get failing areas back on track, researchers at Argonne National Laboratory said.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
