Research and development (R&D) intensity (expenditure on R&D as a percentage of Gross Domestic Product, GDP) in the OECD area rose from 2.37% in 2017 to 2.40% in 2018, according to the latest data published on February 28 in the OECD Main Science and Technology Indicators (MSTI) database. This increase, which follows a similar rise between 2016 and 2017, was driven by faster real growth in R&D expenditure (+3.8%) compared to GDP (+2.3%). The OECD area has not seen comparable growth in R&D expenditure over a two-year period since before the 2008 global financial crisis. Growth in R&D intensity was widespread across the majority of OECD countries in 2018, with the

ossu/computer-science: Path to a free self-taught education in Computer Science!

Open Source Society University (OSSU)

Open Source Society University

Path to a free self-taught education in Computer Science!


Awesome


Open Source Society University - Computer Science

The OSSU curriculum is a complete education in computer science using online materials.
It’s not merely for career training or professional development.
It’s for those who want a proper, well-rounded grounding in concepts fundamental to all computing disciplines,
and for those who have the discipline, will, and (most importantly!) good habits to obtain this education largely on their own,
but with support from a worldwide community of fellow learners.

It is designed according to the degree requirements of undergraduate computer science majors, minus general education (non-CS) requirements,
as it is assumed most of the people following this curriculum are already educated outside the field of CS.
The courses themselves are among the very best in the world, often coming from Harvard, Princeton, MIT, etc.,
but specifically chosen to meet the following criteria.

Courses must:

  • Be open

What Is Computer Engineering? | Live Science

Computer engineering is the branch of engineering that integrates electronic engineering with computer sciences. Computer engineers design and develop computer systems and other technological devices. 

Computer pioneers

Some of the most prominent pioneers in computer hardware include:

  • Blaise Pascal, inventor of the mechanical calculator;
  • Charles Babbage, inventor of the Analytical Engine;
  • J. Presper Eckert and John Mauchly, builders of ENIAC, and later UNIVAC, the first computer to be sold commercially;
  • Nicholas Metropolis, designer of the MANIAC I computer;
  • William Shockley and his team at Bell Labs, inventors of the transistor;
  • Seymour Cray, the “Father of Supercomputing”;
  • Steve Wozniak, designer of the Apple I and II personal computers and co-founder of Apple Computer along with Steve Jobs;
  • Adam Osborne, developer of the first portable computer, the Osborne 1; and
  • Douglas Engelbart and Bill English, co-inventors of the computer mouse and developers of hypertext, computer networks and the graphical user interface (GUI).

Department of Computer Science, University of Northern Iowa

Welcome to the home of the Department of Computer Science at
the University of Northern Iowa!

This is a

great time to be in computer science
,
especially at UNI. Demand for IT professionals in Iowa and the
Midwest grows faster than universities can produce graduates.
The discipline of computing continues to push the boundaries of
what is possible by discovering new ideas, building new kinds of
systems, and bring new tools into the home, school, and office.
If you want to be in the thick of the intellectual excitement
that is changing every other discipline, then computer science
is the place to be.

At UNI, you will encounter a faculty immersed in this excitement
and dedicated to student achievement. UNI CS’s undergraduate
students work closely with faculty members to explore the
discipline of computing, learn skills they can use in the
marketplace, and have the opportunity to do research

Computer Science Lab Home Page: Learn Computer Programming


This unique computer curriculum offers 3 different environments of graduated
complexity: a programmable RPN (Reverse Polish Notation) calculator, an Intel
8051 microprocessor that is programmed using assembly language, and finally the
high-level C and C++ languages.


Each of these 3 languages comes complete with an
integrated development environment
(IDE) that provides an editor, compiler, and debugger. You
get fully explained solutions to fun programming projects such as
a scrolling electronic signboard, a robotic mouse in a maze, an audio
peak detector using an LED bar graph, and the Breakout video game.
All of these example programs have been designed to be highly visual,
audible, and fun.
In addition to the introduction to assembly language programming and
the introduction to C and C++, this curriculum offers an introduction to
Windows programming and graphical user interfaces.

Computer Information Systems vs Computer Science

Computer Information Systems vs Computer Science Online DegreesThese days there are almost TOO many choices for online Computer Science and IT degrees. Which tech-savvy degree should you choose? What’s the difference between a Computer Information Systems vs Computer Science major? IS there really any difference? If so, which one is best for which career paths?

If you’re having trouble choosing an IT degree path, start by asking yourself which of the following three career questions interests you most:  

1. Why does the technology work?
2. How does the technology work?
3. What technology would work the best?

The question you find yourself most drawn to is a clue to which type of online degree you’d prefer when it comes to Computer Information Systems vs Computer Science.

Many of the online IT degrees offered today are related to Computer Science, Information Technology or Computer Information Systems. Each major shares much in common, but each also tends to focus
