    Study Engineering and Computing at UQ

    Francis: The future is full of unknowns. From climate change and population growth… …to making meaning from data sets bigger than we can imagine. We have complex challenges to solve. But the possibilities are limitless. I want to shape the world we live in. Make it better. For everyone. I’ll need specialised knowledge… …and the ability to adapt in a world that’s constantly changing. I’m honing my skills in cutting-edge learning environments. …and getting hands-on experience.

    OVH.COM : How our servers come to be (in North America)

    OVH.com s global stock of servers passed the 150,000 mark in the first quarter of 2013, a figure which reflects the increasing needs of its customers. The European web hosting leader’s exponential growth has further increased with the official launch, at the beginning of the year of BHS, its North American datacentre,. One of the most appreciated advantages is the high availability of machines, a server ordered on OVH.com is available just one hour later. This impressive delivery time is because every machine is assembled and tested in our production facility. It’s here at the production facility, located within the BHS (Beauharnois) datacentre in southern Montreal, that OVH.com manufactures servers…

    Quantum Computing – The Qubit Technology Revolution

    So our plan today is to talk about what quantum computers are. How people are building them. What they can do. What they can’t do. They’re not all powerful god like devices so they do have limitations that we’ll get into as well. OK. Without further ado let me introduce our esteemed panelists. Our first panelist is a mathematician, computer scientist, physicist, expert on quantum information theory. She was a professor at Tel Aviv University and a researcher at the CNRS in Paris. Pease welcome Julia Kempe. Our next participant is the professor of quantum mechanical engineering, that’s a thing, at MIT. Director of the Keck center for extreme quantum…

    The Mexican Mormon War (Drug Cartels vs. Mormons Full Length)

    MITT ROMNEY: Drug trafficking. That’s one more of those areas of concern. It’s time for the United States of America to take responsibility for the pain and suffering and torture and murder that’s going on throughout Latin America. SHANE SMITH: Maybe one of the reasons that Mitt Romney is so concerned with the drug wars taking place just south of the American border is that it affects him and his family personally. Hi, I’m Shane Smith and we’re here at the Vice headquarters in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Now, Williamsburg is ground zero for hipsters. Which means it’s also ground zero for partying. Which means it’s ground zero for cocaine. Now, Vice…

    Canada’s New Shipping Shortcut

    This is a Wendover Productions video made possible by Hover. Get 10% off your custom Domain from Hover with the code “Wendover” at checkout. The Arctic will be perhaps the single most influential region on earth in the coming century and yet almost no-one even lives there. Eight nations have territory above the Arctic Circle—Denmark though their constituent country: Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia, the United States, and Canada—and they are all in close quarters. This circle represents the distance a plane can fly in three hours. Most of these countries can reach each other faster than they watch Titanic. Anchorage, Alaska is, in fact, closer to Tromsø, Norway…

    Conflict Minerals, Rebels and Child Soldiers in Congo

    SUROOSH ALVI: It’s late. We’re deep in the heart of it now. I don’t know how much water we have. We haven’t eaten in a really long time. And my glasses are fogging up because it’s so hot. And I can’t see. And I’m walking in the mud. I don’t know, man. I think this might be the stupidest thing I’ve ever done. The Democratic Republic of Congo. It’s one of the poorest countries in the world, and thanks to insanely complicated mix of politics, armed conflict, and corruption, it’s also one of the most under-reported. It also happens to be home to a nondescript black rock known as coltan,…

    World’s Future MEGAPROJECTS

    Welcome to TDC. This is our mini-documentary on the most ambitious, fascinating infrastructure Megaprojects of the near future. The rulers of the United Arab Emirates have insane amounts of money to spend. Thanks to everyone’s thirst for oil, they’ve been on a construction spree unlike any the world has ever seen for such a small country, investing in one ambitious infrastructure project after another. At one point, 24 percent of all the world’s construction cranes we in Dubai. Unfortunately, that was before the 2008-2009 global financial meltdown, which led to much of the investment in the city drying up faster than the water on somebody who just got out of…
