Franz’s Allegro CL® Used for Scheduling the Hubble Space Telescope Discovery of Earendel

Franz Inc., an early innovator in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and leading supplier of Graph Database technology for Entity-Event Knowledge Graph Solutions, announced that its Allegro CL (Allegro Common Lisp) dynamic object-oriented development system used by the Space Telescope Science Institute to develop the SPIKE Hubble Space Telescope observation scheduler has aided in the discovery of “Earendel,” the farthest star ever seen in the universe.

State of Data Report Emphasizes Emerging Shift to a Decentralized Model

New market research commissioned by Starburst and Red Hat uncovers that 55% of organizations claim the pandemic has made data access more critical, a slight increase from the 2021 study. As a result, enterprises plan to prioritize multi-cloud flexibility and ease of use when it comes to selecting data infrastructure solutions. The second annual report, “The State of Data and What’s Next,” conducted by independent research firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), found that the shift to quick and flexible deployments is imperative for driving the business functions and insights required to deliver valuable customer experiences in today’s fast-paced, distributed environment.

New Quantum Computing Research Shows Promising Path to Commercialization

Agnostiq, Inc., the quantum computing SaaS startup, announced its latest benchmark research which analyzed the state of quantum computing hardware to determine its current and future practicality as a mainstream solution. The findings show that quantum computing hardware has improved over time and that application-specific benchmarks can serve as a more practical yardstick for comparing the capabilities of alternative types of quantum hardware.

Why Predictive Analytics Is Crucial for Maximizing College Retention Efforts

In this contributed article, Bryan Bell, Chief Data Scientist at Aviso Retention, discusses how using data analytics and business intelligence programs to make smarter student enrollment choices helped colleges reduce their “summer melt” by about 1 percent last fall. These colleges also performed three times better than the national average in terms of their fall 2020 enrollment figures.
