Food, shelter and clothing are essential, and unlike the air we breathe, we purchase them. The internet is great at selling us what we must buy, but more than any other industry, real estate has been affected by the internet and the way homes are bought and sold has changed— and this affects architecture.

Just as WebMD and LegalZoom have changed the way doctors and lawyers practice their professions, Houzz changed the way architects are perceived. But there is an unexpected reality beyond Houzz for architects amid this real estate boom. In this year’s frenzy, architects found themselves bumping into long-completed projects, freshly scrubbed and appointed to hype as presented in the unrelenting marketing of the internet.

This change goes far beyond the tools Amazon uses in this new world of real estate marketing. Drones that were exotic in 2010 are now cheap and exquisitely precise and versatile. When combined with new video technology, interior “tours” flow through any building and the aerial views are astounding. Anyone can take exceptional photographs that can be easily touched-up using any smartphone. And everything is posted online: free to anyone to see anywhere, any time.

When websites like Trulia or Zillow connected with Global Information System (GIS) technology, satellite images and Google Earth drive-by technology, it made almost every place anywhere fully accessible to anyone. Every sale of every home can be accessed, with no secrets managed by the owners or a broker. There is no longer any filtering or coloring of any home’s circumstances. Another new technology has also changed the way we see our homes. Airbnb brings scores of new occupants into what architects help create, and they are benefitting from direct exposure to their work.

Paralleling these changes, it is now a cliché to say that the pandemic changed the way many think about where they live. The internet not only transformed how we buy things, it changed how we make the income we use as consumers. For many, you do not have to live near where you work. Whether this revolution in how we buy and sell homes was the new real estate boom’s cause or effect, sales in buildings are at a decade high and architects are freshly relevant when people reconsider their homes.  

Building anything is a little like having children. Great effort often results in pain in birthing and joy in experiencing the delivered beauty. Then life happens. Buildings live on beyond their design and construction — just as children leave the nest and create lives after their childhood. The parents of both offspring and buildings are often shocked or delighted in the inevitable changes their creations manifest.  In the last year I have been confronted with the life of homes that were designed decades ago. Some of my long-gone built projects are now zombies — the living dead of my life’s dedication — now living on my laptop screen in the feverish attempt to sell them.

I am not alone in these reunions. Jack Franzen, FAIA is an exceptional architect in Southport. When he saw newly photogenic projects emerge from his memory and presented on his laptop, he had a similar response. “What I saw did evoke an emotion similar to what one would feel walking into a high school reunion. Some homes were totally recognizable- others needed name tags!”

History and buildings are just part of life for architects. Architect, teacher, planner Patrick Pinnell, FAIA of Higganum sees that reality. “It's interesting to see what lasts, whether it's building forms or building materials. One learns that a project getting awards is no shield against it being torn down.” And Mark Simon, FAIA partner in Centerbrook Architects sees the connection as simply a continuance. “It is always fun to start over with an old client, making something new out of your past.”

It is now conventional wisdom that this real estate boom is busting, and this hyped and hyping market will wane. Architects may see fewer of their old projects pop up on their screens. But after these last few years, the world of how everyone looks at their homes will never be the same.

Killexams : HP hosts webinars on architects that are helping to build a better world

Promotion: technology brand HP has invited designers and architects to present a series of talks discussing how forward-thinking design can better meet user needs.

The brand's six webinars cover a range of topics, including changes in residential design following the coronavirus pandemic, designing for workplace environments, how drawing can be a powerful communicative tool, sustainable beach houses and the impact of small, everyday objects.

In the series, HP aims to showcase "how leading specialists are helping to build a better world through smarter design and construction".

Swiss design studio Big-Game joined HP for the first webinar in the series, in which studio founders Augustin Scott de Martinville, Grégoire Jeanmonod and Elric Petit discussed "how everyday objects can Improve the spaces where we live and work".

The webinar describes a selection of Big-Game's furniture and products that represent the studio's ethos of improving living conditions through smart design and construction.

Robert Palomba, co-founder of interior design studio Palomba Serafini Associati, presented a webinar on the conditions of post-pandemic living standards.

In the talk, Palomba explores changes in how we use our homes following the Covid-19 pandemic and how design can reflect evolving habits.

"A lot of people are starting to think of their homes in a different way," he said. "Before it was just a place to go to sleep or have a shower before going out with friends. Now people are starting to feel their home as a place to stay and a place that has to represent ourselves."

Using their own architectural designs as examples, Brazilian studio FGMF Arquitetos partners Fernando Forete and Lourenço Gimenes led a webinar on the future of designing office spaces.

Forte and Gimenes discuss how workplace design has changed in the last decade and how architects can better meet user needs.

In a webinar titled Balancing Digital and Natural, owner of American practice Olson Kundig Architects Kirsten R Murray proposes office interiors should incorporate natural design elements.

Murray explains that as the workplace has become increasingly digitised, designers must reconsider how the working environment is designed and the importance of providing a connection to nature.

Based in Lagos, Nigeria, architect Tosin Oshinowo presented a talk on the sustainable evolution of West African beach houses.

In the webinar, Oshinowo explores how gaining independence influenced architecture in African countries, tropical modernist design and projects completed by her studio, CmDesign Atelier.

Oshinowo explains how CmDesign Atelier's beach house designs aim "to create comfortable spaces with passive systems of servicing while also being able to incorporate a social sustainability".

For the final webinar in the series, HP invited Two Worlds Design podcast host Hamza Shaikh to discuss the importance of drawings in sparking conversation and "creating a positive impact on society".

In the talk titled Drawing up positive change using architecture, Shaikh explains how he uses drawing as a tool for communicating and unpacks the progression of a sketch to a realised building.

Killexams : HP targets construction sites with autonomous floorplan-printing robots

HP has put forward a small robot it says can dramatically speed up construction work, by autonomously printing guidelines straight from the blueprints onto the floor. Rugged, roadworthy and extremely accurate, Siteprint is a super-quick layout tool.

The robot replaces the time-consuming manual process of site layout, using a variety of different inks to place precise lines, exact curves and faithful reproductions of complex shapes on all kinds of floors, from porous surfaces like concrete and plywood to terrazzo, vinyl or epoxy.

It doesn't require a perfectly smooth or clean floor – indeed, it can handle a certain degree of surface irregularity and obstacles up to 2 cm (0.8 in) high. It runs built-in obstacle and cliff drop sensors for fully autonomous operation, and will work around barriers even if they're not in the plans.

As well as layout lines, it's capable of printing more or less whatever else you need on the floor too, including text notes. Operators set it up using cloud-based tools for job preparation, fleet management and tracking, and can run it on site with a touch-screen tablet and a tripod-mounted "totalstation."

HP claims the SitePrint robot replicated seven hours of manual layout work in 45 minutes in testing, with extreme accuracy


“The existing manual layout process can be slow and labor intensive,” said Albert Zulps, Director of Emerging Technology at Skanska - a global construction and development company currently using the SitePrint system for two of its US projects. "Despite being done by specialists, there is always the risk of human error, which can result in costly reworks. Layout experts are a scarce resource who add a lot of value in terms of planning and strategy, but often end up dedicating most of their time to manual execution. HP SitePrint lets us do more with less, helping reduce schedules thanks to a much faster layout process, and allowing senior operators to focus on other critical activities like quality control.”

While HP hasn't announced pricing, we assume the printer robot itself will be surprisingly cheap, but the ink's gonna be a killer. Yuk yuk.

Killexams : Best HP Laptops for 2022

HP laptops offer something for you, whether you're a creative looking to edit photos, a gamer in search of a powerful laptop or a student in need of a small, lightweight laptop.

Many of the best HP laptops have features designed for remote or hybrid work such as improved webcams and microphones, better audio quality, longer battery life, faster charging and the fastest Wi-Fi 6 wireless.

Like other PC makers such as Dell, Lenovo, Acer and Asus, HP is in the midst of updating the processors in its laptops and two-in-ones. That means Intel-based models are moving from 11th-gen to 12th-gen CPUs, while AMD Ryzen systems are switching from 5000-series chips to 6000-series. It also means it's generally a good time to look for deals on older models of the best HP laptops. However, we've also seen big performance improvements with the new processors. An updated model might cost a little more but will add to the overall longevity. 


Spectre is HP's top consumer laptop line so you're getting the best of the best with this 16-inch two-in-one. 

  • Beautiful design
  • Lots of features for home and office work
  • Great webcam
  • Active pen and laptop sleeve included

Of course, a premium two-in-one like the Spectre x360 comes at a relatively high price; it starts at around $1,200. The top-end configuration we reviewed was good but not great considering its $2,030 price. This is definitely one we recommend getting with the 12th-gen Intel processors and Intel Arc graphics if you're going to go all-in. Read our HP Spectre x360 16 review.

James Martin/CNET

HP's Victus 16 is a surprisingly robust and powerful gaming laptop that keeps up with the latest games at a more affordable price. Compared to HP's high-end Omen gaming laptop line, the Victus is more of an all-purpose laptop but still configured for gaming with a price starting at less than $1,000. HP offers several configurations with graphics chip options ranging from Nvidia's entry-level GeForce GTX 1650 up to a midrange RTX 3060 or AMD Radeon RX 6500M. We like almost everything about it except for its flimsy display hinge and underwhelming speakers. Read our HP Victus 16 review.

Josh Goldman/CNET

There are plenty of convertible Chromebooks, where the screen flips around to the back of the keyboard so you can use it as a tablet. But Chrome tablets with removable keyboards like the HP Chromebook x2 11 are still a rarity. It offers long battery life and performance that rises (slightly) above the competition. The main downside is that it's expensive; the model we reviewed is $599. However, that price did include both the keyboard cover and USI pen and it's regularly on sale for $200. If you're interested make sure to wait for one of those deals. Read our HP Chromebook x2 11 review.

Josh Goldman/CNET

If you're making a laptop aimed at creatives, it's not enough to just put discrete graphics and a strong processor in a slim body. The extra performance really should be paired with a good screen, and that's what you get with the HP Envy 14. The laptop's 16:10 14-inch 1,920x1,200-pixel display not only gives you more vertical room to work, but is color-calibrated at the factory and covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut. The result: a well-rounded option for creatives looking for on-the-go performance at a reasonable price. This model is due for a refresh, though, so keep an eye out for updated models. Read our HP Envy 14 review.

Killexams : The Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV Lineup Brings Up to 677 HP

Photo credit: Mercedes-AMG

The Mercedes-Benz EQ lineup just keeps growing. The Stuttgart-based automaker unveiled yet another electric SUV that's coming stateside, by way of the 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV. Like the sedan with which it shares nomenclature, the EQE SUV features some polarizing styling elements wrapped around a powertrain that promises to deliver more than 300 miles of range per charge. The new nameplate will also be the first electric SUV in the Mercedes lineup with an AMG variant, called the EQE AMG, which is slated to arrive for 2024. Here’s everything you need to know about these new EVs.

The 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV rides on the same electric architecture as the EQS SUV. Every EQE SUV will feature a 90.6 kWh battery pack. The battery is capable of charging at a maximum of 170 kW with DC fast charging, which allows the battery to recharge from 10-80 percent in just 32 minutes. Mercedes-Benz says that the battery is capable of providing up to 342 miles of range on the WLTP cycle, which will fall closer to the 300 mile range on our EPA testing cycle. Every Mercedes-Benz EV will be backed by a 10-year or 155,000 mile battery warranty.

The base model EQE 350+ SUV features a single rear drive motor delivering 288 hp and 417 lb-ft. The EQE 350 4Matic models see an additional motor on the front axle, providing a variable torque split across the four wheels. When extra traction isn’t necessary, the 4Matic system can decouple the front motor for improved efficiency. The entry-level 4Matic model retains the same 288 hp rating, but receives a bump up to 564 lb-ft or torque. Step up to the EQE 500 4Matic trim and output jumps significantly to 536 hp and 633 lb-ft. That sort of power allows the SUV to rip off a 0-60 mph sprint in just 4.6 seconds. 4Matic-equipped models will also receive a unique off-road driving mode, which recalibrates systems like ABS, traction control, and stability control, to allow a bit more slip over loose surfaces. The EQE 350+ SUV comes equipped with 19-inch wheels, while larger 20-inch units are reserved for the EQE 500 4Matic and its standard AMG Line Exterior package.

Every EQE SUV model sports a four-link front suspension system with an independent multi-link out back. Mercedes's AirMatic suspension system with ADS+ dampers are optional. A rear-steer system is also available, which provides up to 10 degrees of steering angle at the rear axle. The 119.3-inch wheelbase of the EQE SUV is 3.5-inches shorter than that of the EQE sedan, which Mercedes says helps provide a more dynamic feel than the larger EQS SUV. The EQE SUV’s total length of 191.5-inch overall length is also significantly shorter than its sedan equivalent, making it a bit easier to navigate around town. Like other EQ models in the lineup, the looks are sure to be hit-or-miss with traditional buyers.

Inside the EQE SUV you’ll find typical Mercedes-Benz luxuries, including the latest MBUX infotainment system backed by over-the-air updates. That system functions through a 12.8-inch central OLED portrait display, which works in tandem with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. EQE 350 models will feature an MB-Tex interior, while the range-topping 500 model receives full leather. A Burmester 3D sound system with Dolby Atmos handles the tunes. Standard driver assist features include Active Brake Assist, Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, and Parking Assist Package. An optional Driver Assists Package brings more tech features like Active Lane Change Assist and Evasive Steering Assist among others. Inside drivers are treated to the new Serene Breeze soundscape, which aims to backfill the aural experience left behind by the internal combustion engine. Customers will be able to purchase soundscapes through the Mercedes me Store.

The EQE SUV is slated to arrive in the United States in 2023, but the high-performance AMG variant won’t be available until 2024. The Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV features the same 90.6 kWh battery pack as the other models, but comes exclusively with Mercedes’ 4Matic+ dual-motor setup. The AMG model gets yet another sizable performance bump, bringing output totals up to 617 hp and 701 lb-ft of torque. That can briefly jump up to 677 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque when the AMG Dynamic Plus Package is equipped. Using the Race Start mode, the Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV can do 0-60 mph in just 3.4 seconds, and can reach a top speed of 149 mph, up from 130 mph in other EQE SUV trims. That added power comes at the price of range however, with Mercedes-AMG estimating a figure of 292 miles on the frendlier WLTP cycle.

Photo credit: Mercedes-AMG

In order to contain all of that extra horsepower, the SUV comes equipped with 16.3-inch front and 14.9-inch rear brake rotors, with six-piston calipers on the front and a single-piston unit out back. For maximum performance, a set of ceramic composite brake rotors measuring 17.3-inches at the front are available. Those brakes hide behind 21 or optional 22-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport EV MO1 tires. The AMG model also benefits from Active Ride Control, which compensates for body roll in the corners for improved handling and ride comfort, thanks to an additional 48-volt system. A rear-steer setup with 9 degrees of steering angle comes standard on every AMG model.

The 2024 Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV features a MB-Tex and microfiber interior accented with red stitching, though a Nappa leather option is available. The standard steering wheel is also replaced by a flat-bottom AMG unit, complete with aluminum paddles for modulating regeneration. Customers can option the impressive looking MBUX Hyperscreen infotainment system in the AMG, which runs across the dash from A-pillar to A-pillar. As you’d expect from an AMG, the model also comes with its own unique EV soundtrack tuned for various driving conditions.

No pricing information or ordering date information for the EQE SUV lineup is available at this time. That said, don’t expect to have to wait too much longer for a more detailed look at this new EV offering from Stuttgart.

Killexams : 10 Things We Just Learned About The Ariel Hipercar © Provided by HotCars

Ariel is known for making some of the most powerful and fun track cars on the market. However, they have changed the game with the new Ariel Hipercar. This model is completely redesigned and comes with an all-electric architecture that promises to take your breath away.

Ariel managed to pack in tons of racing technology in the new Ariel Hipercar, with four electric motors driving power to each wheel. This powerful electric powertrain is paired with impressive aerodynamics and a lightweight design to give you the ultimate track experience wherever you decide to drive the Hipercar.

Want to learn more about the Ariel Hipercar? You’ve found the right article. Here are 10 things we just learned about this amazing supercar, the new Ariel Hipercar.

Related: Here's What Gearheads Should Know About The Ariel Hipercar

Compact Design

The Ariel Hipercar is based on the latest technology from Ariel Motors. Arial has built a reputation over the years for creating some of the most exciting track cars on the market. When it comes to the looks department, the Hipercar does not disappoint.

Ariel went all-out to create an incredibly powerful and aggressive new design for the Ariel Hipercar. The front end of the car is incredibly angular with a front bumper that looks more like a front wing from a Formula One car. The Hipercar from Ariel was built to be as compact and light as possible, allowing the car to extract every drop of performance from its powertrain.


The Ariel Hipercar is a high-performance sports car that includes an all-electric architecture. Ariel has designated this under the HIPERCAR brand, standing for High Performance Carb Reduction vehicles. This blend of high-performance running and an electric powertrain makes it the perfect track car for the future.

Ariel has made some impressive track cars in the past, but the Ariel Hipercar takes this to a whole new level. The car comes with all the modern technology you can expect from a premium track car but in a compact, lightweight, and all-electric design.

Powerful Aerodynamics

The Ariel Hipercar comes with an incredibly advanced aerodynamic setup. The front end of the car is dominated by an angular front wing that helps direct air above and below the sports car. The side of the car also helps direct air to the rear and helps increase the overall downforce of the package as well.

The rear of the Ariel Hipercar includes wing tips on each of the rear arches and a rear diffuser to help direct air upwards under the car. Ariel also included tons of 3D-printed parts when constructing the Ariel Hipercar. This helped the designers craft a truly unique track car to take full advantage of the overall package.

All-Electric Architecture

The Ariel Hipercar is designed from the ground up as an electric sports car. This was a first for Ariel, and so they decided to create an entirely new chassis for the Hipercar. This chassis was made using an aluminum front and rear subframe that was attached to a fully carbon-fiber body.

The Hipercar was designed with extreme precision, with many parts being custom 3D printed specifically for the electric sports car. The laser-cut and CNC-folded parts are bonded directly to the aluminum monocoque, allowing the entire car to be incredibly rigid and durable on track.

1,180 HP Powertrain

The Ariel Hipercar does not just come with a single electric motor but rather includes four electric motors. These four electric motors are attached directly to each of the four wheels, allowing you to have torque vectoring control like never before.

Each electric motor is around 295 HP, meaning that the total output of the Ariel Hipercar is at 1,180 HP. This, paired with the lightweight design of the Hipercar, helps the electric sports car achieve incredible performance on track.

Turbine Jet Engine

One of the most unique aspects of the Ariel Hipercar’s design is the rear turbine. This turbine range extender helps to harness energy and recharge the battery while you’re on track. While this might look like a gas-guzzling exhaust, it’s way more complicated than that.

The turbine option is designed by Cosworth and is a 35 kW CatGen Catalytic Generator. This means that it can effectively spin the turbine while you’re on track to help recharge the battery. This recharging isn’t enough to last forever but can help you extend the range of the Hipercar on track.

Related: Here’s What Makes The New Electrified Ariel Hipercar So Awesome

150 Miles Of Range

One of the biggest concerns when it comes to electric sports cars is the range that they come with. This is because electric cars can have very different ranges depending on how you drive them. While most street cars are built to be driven calmly around town, the Ariel Hipercar was built to be pushed to the limit.

This is why Ariel decided to include a 62-kWh battery back in the Hipercar. This lithium-ion battery comes with a unique heating and cooling function that can help keep the battery in the optimal window when on track. The battery is also made by Cosworth, allowing the optional turbine to seamlessly charge the battery pack as you drive.

Minimal Interior

While the exterior of the Ariel Hipercar was designed to be as extravagant and aggressive as possible, the interior of the sports car takes a different approach. The interior of the Ariel Hipercar is incredibly minimal, with only essential controls placed within the cockpit.

The interior of the Ariel Hipercar is stripped back to the basics, with tons of carbon fiber exposed throughout the cabin. Ariel included a digital driver’s display behind the steering wheel and a panel above the driver’s head for other car controls. There is also a central screen mounted to the dash that can also be used to display vital information when on track.

Lightweight Design

When it comes to track performance, there are two major factors to keep in mind. While the powertrain is important, a lightweight design is the best way to ensure that every last drop of performance makes its way onto the tack. This is a department where Ariel has dominated for the last few years with their previous track cars.

Ariel has leveraged its experience to create a super lightweight design for the Ariel Hipercar. This means that the entire car weighs only 3,300 lbs. This is specifically impressive due to the fact that the Ariel Hipercar is an electric sports car that requires heavy batteries to run efficiently on track.

0 To 60 MPH In 2.09 Seconds

As mentioned above, the Ariel Hipercar comes with a massive 1,180 HP powertrain. The powertrain is not centralized but is rather distributed equally to all four wheels. The sports car will be available in both two and four-wheel-drive modes, allowing you to have full control of the performance of the sports car.

When you put the Ariel Hipercar in all-out track mode, the car can leverage its raw power and aerodynamics to achieve some astonishing times. The Hipercar can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.09 seconds and from 0 to 100 mph in just 4.4 seconds. However, you can Improve this to under 2 seconds with full torque vectoring.

Killexams : HP Envy 16 Review Mon, 10 Oct 2022 02:32:00 -0500 en text/html Killexams : HP 14 Laptop Review

Here’s a two-word summary: pretty well!

Upon opening the box you definitely get the feeling that this is more Timex than Rolex: It’s a mass-market device aimed at everyday consumers who don’t necessarily need (or even want) a premium laptop. It’s quite plasticy with a bit of flex to it. It sounds hollow when you tap it. The bezel (the border that frames the display itself) is pretty big compared with higher-end laptops. It’s covered in stickers. 

All of the above are signs of a laptop that was designed to hit a low price. But you know what? When you’re actually using the laptop, it isn’t half bad.

In terms of specs, it has an Intel Core i3 processor, 8GB of memory, and 256GB of solid-state storage. On paper, you’d be forgiven for thinking the laptop would be somewhat underwhelming.

Guess again. Browsing around the web, even on today’s ad-laden websites, proceeds smoothly. Watching HD video on YouTube is more or less identical to the experience you’d get on a much more powerful PC (such as the gaming PC this review is being written on), although you can really hear the laptop’s fans whirring while doing so.

Switching between different apps like Edge, Adobe Photoshop Elements, and Word either using the keyboard shortcut alt-tab or by clicking the Windows Task Bar? No problems there, showing that despite being a lower-priced laptop, its everyday performance is more than adequate.

If you’re the type of person who immediately downloads a tool like GeekBench or Prime95 to see how fast your computer actually is, well, none of this may be too impressive. But if you’re not that person (and most of us aren’t), then it’s hard to find much fault here.

Killexams : HP Elite Dragonfly G3 Review Wed, 21 Sep 2022 00:28:00 -0500 en text/html Killexams : DISA’s sweeping new plan takes aim at data silos, mistagged info

The first data strategy implementation plan issued by the Pentagon’s lead IT office seeks nothing less than to break down the myriad and storied walls that keep information from flowing freely and securely between DOD programs, military branches, and battlefield units.

“Some of the unattractive data management practices that we are seeing right now is that we're working in silos instead of working collaboratively. Especially within the Department of Defense, we've always kind of been institutionalized that your data in your program is yours,” said Caroline Kuharske, the acting chief data officer of the Defense Information Systems Agency.

That’s not going to fly in an era where battlefield victory will turn on the ability to share data—and crunch it with a new generation of artificial-intelligence tools.

“When it comes to our data management, we have to be able to posture that data as close to the source as possible to be able to share” securely across organizations, Kuharske told Defense One in an interview.

“One of the things that my office is really honing in on are data pipelines and data flow architecture, so that we can ensure that that data set from that authoritative source is not being spread into multiple different data repositories. So that we can really contain that data set to ensure the integrity of it throughout its lifecycle,” she said.

The strategy, dated in July and publicly released in late August, lays out four lines of effort: data architecture and governance, advanced analytics, data culture, and knowledge management. These echo the data decrees issued last year by the deputy defense secretary and the strategy that preceded it.

The agency’s first data strategy implementation plan arrives less than a year after it created a dedicated data office. Kuharske, the office’s first chief, said the biggest challenge is to convince everyone that the flow of information needs to be considered much earlier in the acquisition process, and indeed, as part of any proposed change.  

“Sometimes change is hard,” she said. “Data—in the use of data and the management of data—is typically an afterthought when it comes to solution-building, requirements-gathering services to our warfighter. So we need to make sure that we're giving them the best data possible.” 

To do that, DISA wants to add data-centered training and certification offerings and create an analytics lab where people can practice what they’ve learned. 

“We're really wanting to retain and recruit a workforce that focuses on data early in someone's career. And also those that want to perhaps change and look at different areas,” she said. 

Kuharske walked through the importance of the strategy and what’s next for the agency: 

This document seems to be both a new strategy and a detailed plan for implementation.

Right, it's not just the strategy. The strategy is obviously built in there, but we wanted a plan behind it so that we can make it an operational type of document so the DISA workforce can see themselves in this strategy, in their part that they're playing in the data culture of the agency...

The plan mentions creating a  “data catalog” solution by early fiscal 2023. Can you explain what that means?

The catalog will really serve as a critical reference toward understanding how DISA assets are created, consumed, exchanged, and exploited. Now, we are reaching [initial operating capability] on that at the end of September. So very exciting to get the DISA workforce using that solution and pulling the metadata into that data catalog and then enforcing that governance and policies so that we can mature the data that we currently have. It's going to elevate that digital landfill that we have and clean it up quite a bit. 

There’s also plans to create an “advanced analytic lab” later that year? 

A lot of individuals, you know, they have all this data and are not quite sure what to do with it. So they just store it. We're really wanting the workforce to have a place where they're able to do some analytics and predictive modeling on the data so that we are ahead of the game. So we're working closely with a lot of the DISA threat-hunter groups to evaluate that data and how it's being received from the infrastructure.

How are you working to change the culture? 

We created the DISA Data Council, and that's really going to help that culture to work collectively and together to drive that innovation. If you see somebody doing something in one area that looks like it'll work in yours, you'll have more of a buy-in of doing that when you see that proof of value. 

What is “knowledge management” and why does it matter? 

We found that knowledge management was really just seen as “we're going to put documents together.” Well, what we really want to do with knowledge management is help drown out some of the noise so people can focus on key data so that the end user—our warfighter, our mission partner—really gets that valuable data and not everything else. That they're out there able to create information articles, store it, so that when we do have people that [have a permanent change of station, or] PCS or maybe move from one organization to another organization, that knowledge isn't lost. 

Do you have any particular bad practices that you want this strategy to eradicate?

You can have great data, data hygiene, great data practices as far as collecting data in one repository, tagging it with best practiced characteristics. But if you are not making it visible, making it accessible, making it understood, it's all for nothing.

Just because you have that one piece of data, that does no good when eight other people need it. We do have quite a bit of data that mission partners need. Look at [Joint All Domain Command and Control]; look at Advana. Look at, you know, ADA, [DOD’s AI and Data Acceleration initiative]. DISA is a huge stakeholder in providing data to those platforms. But if we don't have it, if we don't have it organized, if we don't follow the DOD [Chief Digital and AI Office] strategy of VAULTIS, the data is not going to be any good.

And also just redundant data storage. Having the same thing in 18 different places is going to lead to some confusion and it's also going to lead to resources being used in areas that it doesn't need to be.

What new data-governance policies are needed?

One in particular is, like, the DISA data sharing instruction. It will help to mandate the need to democratize data across the agency and to our mission partners, while also having a focus on [application programming interface, or] API enablement. So it really goes back to [understanding that] you have your data and you're owning it and you're curating it and you're ensuring the security of it. But if it needs to be shared, it needs to be shared. And that's okay.
