News from the Competence Centers
Digital art uses digital technology for artistic creations and presentations. The field in general, covers areas of painting, sculpture, audio/music, video/cinema, publishing, textile designing, animation etc. Digital art is the intersection of computer programming, mathematics and art.
Context Free Art(CFA) is a free software for for generating digital art in the form of 2-d images. Based on a simple set of rules, software creates imageries. These rules can be combinatorial and/or iterative. You can generate new shapes from exisiting shapes. Beautiful and compilcated shapes including fractal images can be generated using these simple rules.Categories: Free SoftwareNews
How do Computer Science and other Sciences collaborate to the advance of Humanities? Jason Rhody, a Senior Program Officer at the US National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), will be at the CCSL to discuss the long relationship with computing throughout the funding organization's 50 years, culminating with the creation of the Office of Digital Humanities (ODH) in 2008.
MARKOS is a prototype of an open source tool with a Web-based interface to inspect the code structure and possible license issues of Open Source Software available on public forges. MARKOS is based on source code lightweight fact extraction, heuristics to identify software dependencies, and automatic legal reasoning to identify license issues.
The CCSL-IME invites you to join Professor Gladys Mercier and Chris Zeise, the Director of Admission, to learn about the unique Master of Science in Software Management and Master of Integrated Innovation for Products & Services at Carnegie Mellon University - Silicon Valley!
Who are the Software Engineers of the Future? Do not miss this opportunity to learn the point of view of one of the most influential people in the History of Software Engineering!
The CCSL is pleased to invite you to a presentation by one og the key people in the History of Computing, David Parnas. Parnas is one of the creators of the concepts of modularization and encapsulation in programming and one of the pioneers of Software Engineering. In this presentation, he will speak about the birth of the Software Engineering field and of the difficulties that remain up until today in the area, over 40 years later.
The presentation is alreadty available!
