WishList Tech we hope to see in the public sector A compiler for parallel computing Compilers are critical for turning human-written code into efficient machine-executable software, but generally they do a poor job of optimizing code designed to leverage parallel computing. Fortunately, MIT researchers have modified the popular open-source LLVM compiler to optimize the extra code needed for parallel execution before adding it. Early tests show efficiency gains of up to 25 percent. Your wearable early warning system The Proxxi Band is a wrist-worn device that detects electricity at a distance, alerting wearers (and logging the incident) before they get too close to dangerous voltage. Originally designed for utility workers, Proxxi also has potential for first responders, Navy electrician’s mates and others in the public sector. More ways to do mobile While Chromebooks are popular in education, many government users who don’t need full-fledged laptops have migrated to tablets like the Microsoft Surface. Samsung’s Chromebook Pro, however, could create new inroads. The high-resolution touchscreen supports a stylus and flips around to function as a tablet — while still providing lightweight laptop functionality and full integration with the rapidly growing Chrome OS ecosystem.
