Does the Data Machine insult our intelligence?

October17

“We view the Data Science Machine as a natural complement to human intelligence,” says Max Kanter, whose MIT master’s thesis in computer science is the basis of the Data Science Machine. “There’s so much data out there to be analyzed. And right now it’s just sitting there not doing anything. So maybe we can come […]

Rogue research with Mathematics

August2

Rogue waves (also known as freak waves, monster waves, killer waves, extreme waves, and abnormal waves) are relatively large and spontaneous surface waves that occur far out in open water, and are a threat even to large ships and ocean liners. (source: Wikipedia). Some of these waves can reach up to 10 storeys high. A […]

We study math because of neck-ties!

February21

In a recent online discussion (read more here) about Prime Numbers, was this extract regarding the importance of research; “For what it’s worth, a great deal of mathematical research has no known application and little or no bearing on other fields. Some very smart people (Russell, Hardy) have argued that this is not a bad […]

Counting less than 4 comes naturally!

August31

“Salamanders, given a choice between tubes containing two fruitflies or three, lunge at the tube of three1. This hints that the ability to differentiate between small numbers of objects may have evolved much earlier than scientists had thought. Primates can spot the greater of two quantities smaller than four, without any training. Babies choose the […]
