She has written numerous technology based articles through which she established her credibility. She also has her own website, http://www.tinaamirtha.com/ where she has numerous tech articles. | I learned that Google Research is creating a "innovation and research program dedicated to the nascent collection of products and technologies collectively known as the Internet of Things." It has also created a research grant program to fund and give technical support to promising research groups in academia. This has shaped my opinion to believe that, with time, Google will be producing some very interesting and innovative products and ideas. | This relates to the course study of the SoIC because it largely deals with Technology and Informatics. I am very interested in this "The Internet of Things" that Google has created and I plan to stay updated with it and research more. I also will research more into the dynamics behind the Google Cloud and the Google Brain because this article has sparked my interest. I also am going to attend the upcoming presentation by Deloitte involving "Women in Technology and Business," since I am clearly interested in this topic. 02-03-2015 5:17pm
