Announced Monday during Arizona Governor Doug Ducey’s State of the State address, rural broadband expansion and Smart Highway Corridors projects are underway to “get all of rural Arizona logged on.” And ASU, as well as fellow state institutions University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University, are excited for the opportunities for collaboration.
“Data” is an intimidating word for some people. It’s often associated with a notion of complex processes -- and technologies. But this week, the Third Annual ASU Data Conference brought staff from across the University together to learn more about using data in their everyday work, shedding light on how “data” is not so scary a word. The focus of our work here at ASU is to enable student success, so it’s fitting that many of the big takeaways from the event came from the perspectives freshly offered by student panelists.
Imagine navigating campus using a 3D map, or learning using virtual and augmented reality in the classrooms of the future. Imagine decongested traffic, and aid being brought to the distressed homeless population of Phoenix. These are all possibilities of leveraging devices connected to the internet for ASU’s Smart Region initiative, an effort to bring everyday life into the future.
