Ex-Google CEO: New MIT College Could Help Shrink A.I. Talent Gap

Eric Schmidt believes we’re entering an era where artificial intelligence will underpin most facets of human life.

Estimates of the current global number of skilled A.I. researchers and professionals differ, rangi...

Hear Underground 12, the Earliest Known Case of Musicians Recording While Under the Influence of LSD (1966)

Music and LSD: after “Tomorrow Never Knows” and Sgt. Pepper, we knew what an acid trip should sound like. Other folks needed to know more. Somewhere in Los Angeles in 1966 a group of musicians were dosing and recording while tripping. The resulting recording--credited to “Underground 12” and considered the earliest known case of musicians recording while under the influence of LSD--was only available,  as the legend goes, by mail order-- you can see a copy of it here on discogs , a plain...

Finland’s education system is failing. Should we look to Asia?

Finland scored high on the original PISA education assessment, but its scores have slipped in recent years.Critics argue that Finland's success came from earlier education models, not from headline-making features like late start times, lack of homework, and absence of test assessment.Asia's rigorous education system is now eclipsing Finland's PISA scores. Which approach is the right one? Which is truly shortsighted? None In 2000, the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) released...

Behold The Drawings of Franz Kafka (1907-1917)

Runner 1907-1908 UK-born, Chicago-based artist Philip Hartigan has posted a brief video piece about Franz Kafka’s drawings. Kafka, of course, wrote a body of work, mostly never published during his lifetime, that captured the absurdity and the loneliness of the newly emerging modern world: In The Metamorphosis, Gregor transforms overnight into a giant cockroach; in The Trial, Josef K. is charged with an undefined crime by a maddeningly inaccessible court. In story after story, Kafka showed his...

This residency interview season: Be the rebel

Ours is a chaotic and overburdened medical system. As a senior resident, there is every temptation to seek in our incoming classes more obedient interns and junior residents who would obey my orders as their senior without question. I challenge that we must do the harder thing.

As a mom that is always looking for the best for my kids, I love the idea of advancing their knowledge in multiple ways.

The British Library Digitizes Its Collection of Obscene Books (1658-1940)

Many people are cheated out of an authentic education in English literature because of a longstanding puritanical approach to its curation. One might spend a lifetime reading the traditional canon without ever, for example, learning much about the long history of popular pornographic British writing, a genre that flourished in the 18th and 19th centuries as the popularity of the novel exploded. Everyone knows the Marquis de Sade, even if they haven’t read him, not least because he lent his name...

Value of Language – Part 2

Continued from yesterday’s post Value of Language – Part 1 My friend Rachel Cheng–who is a teacher with the Chinese language programs at both schools–introduced me to Brandi Bane and Tonya Koppin: The chairs of the Career Day and language program at each school respectively. I asked both of them why they started these programs. Brandi explains that where she taught previously, the programs had initially been targeted to upper-level language students. They soon realized, “it would be more benef...

February 2019 Media Recommendations

The brevity of February always throws me off. All my bills are due at the end of the month, and February is the one month that I’ll be late on a bill (or forget to pay one in its entirety, oops). So it’s not surprising that the month is almost over, and I’ve yet to post this (recent concerns over my cat’s health don’t help). But it’s February 2019, damn it, so this still counts. To be honest, the short month is only one reason why I didn’t consume a lot of media about sex. However, I had a few i...
