A team of University of Waterloo undergraduate students, including 6 from the Faculty of Mathematics, returned with a silver medal from the 2018 International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition in Boston.
Cheriton School of Computer Science Professor Srinivasan Keshav has been named by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers as an IEEE Fellow for his contributions to fair queueing techniques and flow-control algorithms in computer networks.
Four teams of programmers from the University of Waterloo swept the top spots at an Association for Computing Machinery regional International Collegiate Programming Competition (ICPC) over the weekend.
Companies that fail to curb their carbon output may eventually face the consequences of asset devaluation and stock price depreciation, according to a new study out of the University of Waterloo.
The researchers further determined that the failure of companies within the emission-intensive sector to take carbon reduction actions could start negatively impacting the general stock market in as little as 10 years’ time.
Researchers at the University of Waterloo have taken a huge step towards making smart devices that do not use batteries or require charging.
These battery-free objects, which feature an IP address for internet connectivity, are known as Internet of Things (IoT) devices. If an IoT device can operate without a battery it lowers maintenance costs and allows the device to be placed in areas that are off the grid.
Studying how human activities and naturally occurring phenomena have an impact on the environment is critical for effective management. Environmental monitoring and modelling are two fundamental practices to help in understanding, predicting and effectively managing these activities and impacts.
