PA higher education puts out a welcome mat in Mumbai

With 30,000-plus international students and growing in Pennsylvania, accounting for more than $965 million in annual economic impact, the new Pennsylvania-American Center for Education in Mumbai, India is working to encourage Indian students to pursue their higher education in the Commonwealth. 
 
Pennsylvania ranks sixth in the nation for foreign student enrollment in higher education institutions. Indian students are expected to be the top international student population in the U.S. by 2020. Currently, they account for 17.2% of Pennsylvania’s international students, second only to Chinese students (who make up 24.7%).
 
Opened last month, the Center, believed to be the first of its kind, is fully funded by a Mumbai private school, but is fully open to  the public. Its purpose is to help Indian families who are exploring educational opportunities for their children outside of the country. One of the main challenges they face is the lack of information available on the universities and colleges, and an understanding of the application and admissions process in other countries
 
The Center will send counselors for training in Pennsylvania and to meet with universities and colleges in the state.  
 
"Pennsylvania was one of the first states in the U.S. to open an official office in India to promote trade and investment opportunities," says Kanika Choudhary, Philadelphia's honorary ambassador to India. "Now we are proud to have a dedicated facility that will provide Indian families with information about studying at Pennsylvania's world-class educational institutions."

Social roboticist Heather Knight to enter CMU's Robot Hall of Fame

As a social roboticist, Heather Knight is helping us see robots in new and entertaining ways.   
 
Robots can tell stories and make us laugh, says Knight who made her debut, accompanied by her endearing sidekick Data, at a 2010 TED Talk. The two have been performing together ever since.
 
Knight, who grew up in Lexington, Mass., is conducting her doctoral research at CMU’s Robotics Institute, attracted by the unique combination of fine arts, robotic and entertainment tech programs.

In keeping with her mission, one of the first things she did when she arrived was to take a census of all the robots on CMU's campus. There are 547 robots in all, not including those at NREC in Lawrenceville, nearly one robot for every student in the department, she says.

In addition to her academic studies, Knight has several ongoing robot projects. She runs a stand up comedy troupe robots, Marilyn Monrobot Labs, in New York City, which produces sensor-based electronic art performances.
 
She also was the founder of the NYC’s first Robot Film Festival, held this summer, and one of several behind Cyborg Cabaret at the New Hazlett Theatre last April, a variety show billed as “avant art-meets-science” theater.
 
She also made the Forbes List for 30 Under 30 in Science. 
 
It's all about breaking the boundaries in our understanding of robots and what they can do and attracting more people to science and technology.  Robots can speak our language and make us laugh in addition to helping humankind, she says.
 
“I want to make machines that will help humanity to flourish,” Knight adds.
 
Knight and Data will make an appearance during the Robot Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at CMU next month, which will be held during the RoboBusiness Leadership Summit. The summit will bring hundreds of robotics industry leaders to Pittsburgh for an Oct. 22-24 conference. 
 
Vote early and often for your favorite robot from the slate of nominees for the Robot Hall of Fame. Created by CMU in 2003, the hall honors both fictional and real robots. Among the nominees are one of Data’s relatives, WALL-E of movie fame and Rosie from the Jetsons.

Is natural always better? FutureDerm offers smart advice and products on skin care

FutureDerm is banking on intelligent women to take a more scientific approach to their cosmetic purchases. 
 
Founded by Pitt graduate Nicki Zevola, the startup is two-fold: an online beauty product database that offers recommendations on a wide range of products, everything from boar-bristle hairbrushes to the latest in wrinkle creams. Zevola is also creating her own line of cosmetics that will be sold both online and to spas and salons across the country.
 
“No one is targeting smart women in the beauty field,” says Zevola, whose company is among the current class of Alpha Lab startups on the South Side. “I want to be the smart voice in the beauty sphere. Just because something is natural doesn’t mean it's safer or more effective.” 
 
Zevola isn’t shy about her aspirations to become the next Estee Lauder. A scientist and researcher in her own right, she believes that the best products stand up to scientific scrutiny. She also hopes to price her products reasonably below what similar products may cost. 
 
Born in South Korea, Zevola grew up in Baldwin and graduated in 2008 from the University of Pittsburgh with degrees in Biological Sciences, Physics/Astronomy, and a minor in Chemistry from the B.S./M.D. program. She has received numerous research fellowships and awards, including one with the Pittsburgh Tissue Engineering Institute.
 
FutureDerm is not about “reinventing the wheel,” she says, but giving consumers the information and science they need to make informed choices about the products they buy. The company launched its first product this summer, a microencapsulated, time-released 0.5% retinol moisturizer. 
 
A second product will roll out later this fall, a vitamin C and E serum. The product is highly stable because it is dispensed through a single dose pump which prevents it from oxidizing, she says. 
 
Social media and blogging have proved key in the marketing of the products and education of her clients, she says. The blog, which gets about 200,000 hits a month, was highlighted in Shape magazine.

PA's energy sector gets a jolt with new interactive map

It is common knowledge that Pennsylvania has a large and diverse energy industry. But where exactly are the companies and what do they do? Who is doing cutting-edge R&D? And what are the opportunities for partnerships and collaboration across the Commonwealth?
 
Now companies, academics, economic development and public officials have a robust new tool: the Pennsylvania Energy Economy Map that chronicles the state's energy sector in a single, web-based location. 
 
Jim Gambino, vice president of technology commercialization: physical sciences, Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern PA (BFTP/SEP), says that the interactive map allows participants in traditional and alternative energy to connect the dots and form the collaborations that drive research, technology transfer, funding and commercialization. "At the end of the day if you really want to drive economic development and success, it always comes down to interaction … that finds common purposes and partnerships," he says.
 
The  map also promises to be an invaluable tool for business attraction, allowing out-of-state and overseas interests to view potential customers and suppliers in Pennsylvania, he adds.
 
The statewide Ben Franklin Technology Partners developed the map, with support from the Department of Community and Economic Development and the governor's office, based on a regional pilot done by BFTP/SEP in 2009.
 
The statewide map already has more than 2,000 entries – companies, universities, capital providers and organizations – with interests ranging from shale gas to renewable energy to pollution reduction and cleanup. Site users can easily add information, which is verified before going live. 
 
Gambino can only guess how many entries the map may eventually hold:  "That really speaks to the value of this map."

Aspinwall firm takes social media marketing to TV with 321Blink the Show

Social media continues to permeate every aspect of our lives. Now it's coming to us through our televisions.
 
Aspinwall-based 321Blink is launching a TV show this week that it believes will give businesses and nonprofits a boost in disseminating their social marketing messages.
 
The creative marketing company is producing 321Blink the Show, a 30-minute, hi-def program that will air weekly with a succession of two-minute segments that highlight local businesses and nonprofit organizations through interviews, clever dialogue and music.
 
The question is, will this be something a discerning viewer will want to watch?
 
Tripp Clarke and Tim McLaughlin, Pittsburgh entrepreneurs with experience in video and media, think so. The format promises to be interesting and will generate a buzz, they say, as the show is promoted across multiple social media platforms.
 
From a marketing perspective, businesses will get more mileage for their dollar from TV. They cite a study by the Wharton School of Business that reports that video improves comprehension and retention by 50% and speeds up buying decisions by 72%.

“Television delivered in an entertaining fashion, that’s well shot, in high definition, will have definite appeal,” says McLaughlin.

“The show is a driver to other platforms (like YouTube and Facebook),” adds Clarke. “Those platforms will then drive back to the show.”

321Blink the Show was inspired by the popularity of the Pittsburgh FYI Network of 20 years ago, a program that featured local businesses, says Clarke. Some of the first shows have an MTV meets Pittsburgh feel to them.

The show will air throughout Pennsylvania, beginning on Sept. 28th, on several TV channels including PCNC, Fox 53, and ABC affiliates.

Businesses can use the video as fresh content for their social marketing strategy, or 321Blink can manage it for them, says Clarke. Fresh content will help businesses to rank better in searches while driving web traffic and moving the message.

The company, founded in 2011, employs seven full-time and three part-time. 321Blink also encourages local filmmakers and musicians to contribute.

Carnegie Mellon tech developer named a top-35 Innovator Under 35 by MIT Review

CMU’s Chris Harrison, developer of technologies that take digital devices to places they’ve never been before—like a phone on your forearm—was selected by MIT’s Technology Review as one of the world’s Top 35 Innovators Under 35.
 
Harrison has been finding new ways for humans to engage with their technology for several years. There was Skinput, a project that flips the way we use devices like cellphones, dialing a number by tapping a projection on our skin or a table.
 
There's Lean and Zoom, a system that automatically adjusts the magnification of a computer monitor based on the distance you sit from the screen. This idea has already been commercialized by CMU’s QoLT Foundry.
 
Touché is a new sensing technique Harrison helped to develop as part of a team at Disney Research, Pittsburgh, that enables objects to sense how they are being touched.
 
Harrison, 28, is a native of England and Ph.D. student in CMU’s University’s Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII). The idea is to take everyday devices—a computer mouse or a keyboard—and give it a nuance that makes it easier and more convenient to use.
 
The list of the illustrious 35 was selected by a panel of experts and the editorial staff of Technology Review based on a evaluation of more than 250 nominations. The 35 winners for 2012 will be featured in the September/October issue of Technology Review.
 
“Chris has a vision of how interfaces to computing power need to change as our computing environment changes, and the technical skills for making his ideas work in the real world. I can’t think of a better addition to the TR35,” says Justine Cassell, HCII director.
 
Harrison will join other TR35 honorees in discussing their achievements at the EmTech MIT 2012 conference, at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge Oct. 24-26.

Eaton Corp. building solar for "show and tell," new jobs in western PA

Eaton Corporation has two solar installations underway in western Pennsylvania, and has recently completed a third to power its own facilities, provide an opportunity for research and development and "help spread the solar message," says Dan Carnovale, a company executive.
 
Construction has just begun on a 1.3-megawatt solar array adjacent to Eaton's 500,000-square-foot plant in Vanport Township in Beaver County. The project, which will be the largest in western Pennsylvania, will incorporate more than 10,000 solar panels, Eaton's solar inverters and the heavy-duty circuit breakers manufactured at the plant.  When complete, the installation will help power the factory.
 
A much smaller, 250-kilowatt rooftop installation is being built atop Eaton's Moon Township building, headquarters for the company's electrical group, which Carnovale notes accounted for half of the company's $16 billion in 2011 sales. In Warrendale, Eaton has built a small under-50-kilowatt demonstration facility, including vehicle chargers, for testing and as a "show and tell kind of thing," says Carnovale. "The point is to do some testing and demonstrate these [products] that we offer."
 
Eaton, based in Cleveland, has a Pennsylvania workforce of about 2,000, out of 73,000 worldwide. Carnovale expects that the large Vanport Township array will bring with it several ongoing maintenance and monitoring jobs.
