November 14, 2019 - Like other industry experts, Oceanit knows that sustainable and renewable energy must be the focus of the future. Solar, hydroelectric, wind, and more are the direction that infrastructure must go; yet the process to get to that point is slow-- not least of all because of cost. Newer power plants are a large investment and the kilowatt/hour cost may cost upwards of 20% more than the current energy production standard.
October 17, 2019 - Oceanit has been working to organize and run community outreach meetings to solicit local engagement on the proposed Ala Wai Canal flood management plans. Oceanit's Innovation Consulting team was contracted by the “Permitted Interaction Group,” sanctioned under the City Council and led by Council Members Carol Fukunaga, Ann Kobayashi and Tommy Waters. The primary purpose was to conduct outreach and ideate alternatives to the initial U.S. Army Corps of Engineers watershed plans, which have been met with resistance from local stakeholders who felt left out of the planning process.
September 19, 2019 - It's not all about training coders. Altino is about inspiring the next generation of innovators, problem solvers, and technologists, and about creating a technology workforce in Hawai'i.
September 13, 2019 - The flashing lights, cute beeps, and 'fast and furious' speeds (okay, perhaps not the last part) of the Altino robotic cars belies the life-changing power that Computer Science and Coding education can hold today. Oceanit is continuing the goal we set in 2018 - to train 5,000 teachers about coding via the Altino system - with the hope that Hawaii’s teachers will carry the CS and critical problem solving lessons learned with Altino into their classrooms and to their students.
September 9, 2019 - Oceanit’s own Tech Sherpa, Ian Kitajima and AI Computer Vision guru, Mark Kimura will be at the TechForce Hawai’i 2019 Conference, hosting STEAM-inspired interactive activities including a Design Thinking and Aloha AI Playground.
