Georgia Tech announces new CISO

The Georgia Institute of Technology announced Monday it’s hired Leo Howell, the chief information security officer at the University of Oregon, as its new CISO. Howell, who’s also been serving as Oregon’s interim chief technology officer, will start at Georgia Tech Oct. 18, according to a press release. Howell’s hiring came at the end of a nationwide search for a full-time replacement by the Atlanta university after the departure of former CISO Jimmy Lummis, who stepped down in January to take a position with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Didier Contis, the director of information technology within Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering and a part-time instructor, had been serving as interim CISO for the past nine months. Emily Bamforth has the details.

RIT tries floor-cleaning robots to disinfect classrooms

Rochester Institute of Technology added electrostatic sprayers onto three floor-cleaning robots this summer to disinfect high-touch surfaces, aiming to ease worries about coronavirus safety and free up staff for more deep cleaning, the school’s environmental services director told EdScoop. RIT uses three Neo robots, designed by Avidbots, designed to autonomously clean large areas. Height-adjustable spray guns are mounted on top of the robots, allowing them to spray objects about four feet high. One of the company’s executives told EdScoop that the devices’ cleaning particles are electrically charged, so they are attracted to surfaces like trash cans and door handles. Emily has it.

U. Michigan to research robots for firefighters, first responders

Researchers at the University of Michigan this month announced new work funded by the National Science Foundation to develop robots that can assist firefighters, search-and-rescue teams and other first responders working in dynamic environments. According to a university press release, engineering professors are leading a three-year, $1 million project to develop bipedal and four-legged robots that can map and traverse rough terrain where it may be unsafe for humans. One of the project’s leads, engineering professor Jessy Grizzle, said the work will attempt to develop robots that can navigate obstacles, make on-the-fly judgements about the safety of environments for humans and find hidden objects in foreign environments.
