La importancia de la educación en ciencia y tecnología para el desarrollo de una nación

Abstract: Most of the public when they hear the word NASA immediately think about: Astronauts, the Moon, Mars and the Space Station. Few realize for example how the use of NASA technology by American businesses spurred job growth and helped maintain U.S. economic competitiveness while improving our everyday lives. Top 10 NASA inventions that you might use every day include: Invisible braces, Scratch-resistant lenses, Memory foam, Ear thermometer, Shoe insoles, Long-distance telecommunications, Adjustable smoke detector, Safety grooving, Cordless tools, and Water filters. The International Space Station (ISS) spinoffs on the other hand are many and include Improvements in heart disease treatments thanks to the study of astronauts’ muscle degradation while on the station; accelerated cell growth experiments that could have applications in vaccines and cancer treatment; analysis of the growth of crops under zero gravity conditions with possible applications for biofuels. In some instance the development of telemedicine allowed astronauts to stay healthy while in space. This has applications for the treatment of patients living in remote regions of the world as well as elderly people with chronic conditions living in urban and suburban areas. Some other developments include, new ways to recycle waste and water. This led to the development of a phototropic cell for water purification on the ISS. This system is now used for the remediation of wastewater systems and waste from livestock farms and food manufacturers. This solution was also used to treat environment damaging oil spills. The ISS is also a model of sustainability, due to its capacity of generating its own power via its solar panels, recycle nearly all its water and supply oxygen. Such a model requires efficient monitoring systems, which are now used on Earth to monitor water quality. The ISS has allowed research on plant growth to take place, in order to find out if it was possible to grow edible crops in space. This led to the development of the High Efficiency Lighting with Integrative Adaptive Control (HELIAC). This technology has been incorporated into a variety of agricultural greenhouses and aquariums lighting features. The lighting systems can be adapted to a specific plant species during a specific growth stage, allowing maximum efficiency in light absorption by all of the plant’s leaves. Such innovations are sold by NASA’s industry partners, thus supporting the economy, creating jobs and maintaining the U.S.’s position as a world leader in technological innovation.

About: Dr. Luis Kun was a Professor of National Security Affairs at the Center for Hemispheric Defense Studies (2011-2015) at the National Defense University, where the prior 8 years he was the Senior Research Professor of Homeland Security at the i-College. He is Editor in Chief of Springer’s Journal of Health and Technology. He graduated from the Merchant Marine Academy in Uruguay and holds a BSEE; MSEE and Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering all from UCLA. He spent 14 years at IBM, where he developed the first six clinical applications for the IBM PC; was one of the pioneers on bedside terminals for Intensive Care; and a developer of a semi-expert, real-time, clinical decision support system: PC/PATSS. He was also the technical manager of the Nursing Point of Care System at IBM. Dr. Kun was the biomedical engineer in the team of four that developed the first Teleradiology system and the first Picture Archival and Communications Systems to run on an IBM platform. Later he was Director of Medical Systems Technology and Strategic Planning at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in LA. As the Senior IT Advisor to the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) he formulated the IT vision and was the lead staff for HPCC program and Telehealth. He co-authored the Reports to the Congress on Telemedicine (1997) and on HIPAA Security. In July of 1997, he was invited speaker to the White House. He was largely responsible for the Telemedicine portion of the bill that became part of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997. Dr. Kun represented the DHHS Secretary at a Pan American Forum of Health Care Ministers on Telecommunications and the Health Care Industry in Mexico in 1997. As a Distinguished Fellow at the CDC (1999-2001) he was the Senior Computer Scientist for the Health Alert Network for Bioterrorism and later the Acting Chief Information Technology Officer for the National Immunization Program (NIP) where he formulated their IT vision on 10/2000. Luis Kun is the founding chair of the IEEE-USA Electronic Health Record and High Performance Computers and Communications WG; and the Bioterrorism / Homeland Security WG, and the Critical Infrastructure Protection Committee. A Fellow of the IEEE and the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, Kun received AIMBE’s first-ever Fellow Advocate Award in 2009. His IEEE-USA Citation of Honor Award reads, «For exemplary contributions in the inception and implementation of a health care IT vision in the US.» He sits in many professional and journal Boards including the IFMBE where he chairs the Global Citizen Safety and Security WG. Universidad Favaloro from Buenos Aires, Argentina named him «Profesor Honoris Causa» on December 2009. In 2011 he received the Golden Core Member Award by the IEEE Computer Society. He was named «Visitante Distinguido» by the City of Puebla, Mexico on September 4, 2013.

Digital Transformation and Software/Requirements Engineering

Abstract: The maturation of disruptive digital technologies (such as Robotics, the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence), together with their ubiquitous introduction in practically all domains, has given rise to radical transformations in businesses, populations and governments, a Digital Transformation (DX) of society. Many economic sectors have been reshaped due to DX: mining and chemistry, agriculture and cattle breeding, food and beverage, automotive, and electronics industries. Likewise, the same has happened to services provided by governments and financial institutions. In this talk, We argue that software and its engineering are cornerstone notions for DX-definition and implementation efforts: the way in which software is considered is critical to determine the effort success or failure. Finally, we analyze the mutual influence that Digital Transformation and Software/Requirements Engineering (RE/SE) have on each other and argue that the future evolution of DX can completely reshape the landscape of RE/SE.
