December 23, 2010

Professor Sossina M. Haile of California Institute of Technology has been leading a research geared towards creating "a simple reactor that mimics plants by turning sunlight into fuel has been demonstrated in the laboratory". This research is hoped to lead to "a large-scale renewable source of liquid fuel".

Dr. Solomon Assefa among IBM Scientists Who Created Ultra-Fast Device Which Uses Light for Communication between Computer Chips
March 3, 2010

According to a press release from the IBM, Dr. Solomon Assefa was among its scientists who created an ultra-device which uses light for communication between computer chips. The finding that is based on research at IBM's T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, N.Y., was publised in a March 2010 issue of the scientific journal Nature. The press release notes that this finding is "a significant step towards replacing electrical signals that communicate via copper wires between computer chips with tiny silicon circuits that communicate using pulses of light" and is "an important advancement in changing the way computer chips talk to each other". Congratulations Dr. Solomon Assefa for being part of a pionering achievement.

Economic Growth and Its Contemporary Avenue
March 27, 2009

In a recently published article by a tourist who visited Ethiopia, Finfinne (Addis Ababa) is the second only to New York as a host of offices of diplomatic and international organizations. So, to the extent that it may be called the gateway to Africa and the origin of humanity, it goes without saying that it would be befitting for Finfinne to live up to the expectations of the citizens of the country, its residents, and guests in various ways, including the provision of information technology services. It is understandable that the country is trying to come out from a mediocre level of development caused by various factors that occurred over the ages. Yet, to be ranked at 129th out of 134 ranked countries of the world may well show the disproportionate attention the political leaders of the country have given to the information technology, or their lack of knowledge about its enormous benefits, than the lack of human capital or other resources. What is almost for sure is that registering economic growth while lagging far behind in the provision one of the most important economic avenues of our time risks losing the sustainability of this economic development.

The Penetration of Information Technology in Ethiopia
October 8, 2007

Many universities are reported to be in the process of establishment in different cities throughout Ethiopia. The amount of focus these universities are putting on the introduction and utilization of the science of information technology is not very clear. In addition, mechanisms that university students could use to choose the area of specializations that suits their professional inclinations may not be available. However, this is an excellent opportunity for those students with a strong background in computational science to carefully consider if the area of information technology is best for them. These students will serve as the experts to help the penetration of information technology to every corner of Ethiopia.
