I don't believe The Big Bang Theory has been cancelled. It remains in the top 10 scripted ratings and is still alive and well as for as I know. Yes, it is surprising though that a cerebral sitcom like this one would not be cancelled by now - Small miracles.
Go Mayim (Amy) go! I would have been proud having her (character) as a friend in college:)! The Big Bang Theory was promoting science (and its geeks)to mainstream America in a clever, funny and quite accurate way. No wonder it was cancelled. Look what is out there now? Maybe this is a sad reflection of what mainstream America is heading to? The move of TI is also clever! Two thumbs up for TI!
While I'm no big fan of mainstream television programming in general, I'll say that more shows like "Big Bang Theory" and (now-cancelled) "Numbers" will go a long way toward influencing the next generation of engineers.
This TI-Bialik partnership is a smart extension of that. (And all the more impressive because of her UCLA cred!).
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
