Over the course of that study, I was exposed to different types of problems. That led me towards an interest in optimization and, broadly speaking, operations research as a topic—which is basically a study of optimal decision making and prediction. He feels fortunate to have attended a school with a robust curriculum in computer science, mathematics, and data science that allowed him to focus on his passion for energy during his undergrad and work his way into broader topics, not necessarily unique to energy, during his graduate learning.

I was also looking at careers in data science and the reason I joined C3. It was kind of like a technology and data science company that certainly was involved in the energy industry and could certainly benefit from having that experience in energy.

But they looked at industry a little more broadly and holistically, and I was looking to dip my toes in that An application might be to use sensor data to predict when the compressor valves are going to fail on the old rigs. He sees the technology used in health and medicine, the nonprofit sector, and clean energy—areas with the most significant impacts on quality of life and sustainability.

But as with any powerful technology, questions of ethics and misuse soberly balance the pros with the potential cons. Brown perks up when asked about how AI can be misappropriated. Relatively convincing examples of these doctored videos can be found on YouTube and the technology is only improving. The barrier-to-entry is minimal for both good and bad actors. Though, as Brown reflects, to affect the greatest change, you need some serious resources.

He makes an example of something that seems outwardly trivial—AlphaGo. In March it became the first computer to beat a nine-dan professional Go player, four games to one. AlphaGo made headlines for cracking the complexities of Go at least ten years ahead of predictions.

Go, however, has far too many potential moves in any given turn to efficiently compute, so AlphaGo utilized a new method involving what are called deep neural networks and reinforcement learning to learn the game over the course of millions of plays—first against humans then against itself. AlphaGoZero improved upon the formula by removing the human equation—playing only against itself and learning strategies without the limitation of human influence. It had to play literally millions of games.

But that is entirely impractical and out of reach for the vast majority of people. In an industry grounded in academia and research, the idyll of open source information can come with potential negative consequences. This poses one of many problems that regulators face in addressing these technologies, complicated by the speed at which they progress. Due to concerns over malicious applications of their technology, OpenAI only publicly released an untrained version of their second generation model, GPT-2, and only opened a partially trained version to researchers.

Similarly, OpenAI recognizes that their third-generation model, GPT-3, is vulnerable to misuse should they make it available though open source. The earliest precursors to machine learning, for example, is basically a set of rules, and a set of rules is a very easy thing to interpret and you can follow exactly the decision that a model or an algorithm is making to reach its final decision. I think automation is an area where it is proven to be effective. He carefully notes the difference between automation that complements and empowers human productivity and the automation that destroys livelihoods, citing the time-consuming task of dredging through mountains of email spam—a nearly non-existent task thanks to AI.

Brown is equally optimistic of the future of data science and AI. Like if quantum computing is accessible and cheap and legitimate you can better enable these types of tasks. Answers to these questions could further catalyze the advancement of artificial intelligent technologies. DeepMind those two subjects. Leap-and-bounds notwithstanding, artificial intelligence will continue to improve. For the potential AI and data science poses to remain a force for good, and for us to advance it to shape our lives and our world in a positive light, we need passionate people, interested in the associated industries to make a difference.

Or, do you have a keen eye to the catch patterns in the data and tie it directly to your business? Another flavor of the work would be a literal PhD postdoc scientist studying math as it pertains to data science and computing. No matter what area you go into. Having a strong statistical background is useful as well and, by extension, linear algebra and the marrying of. Diverging for a moment from the technical aspects of the profession, Brown goes on to say that data is nothing without the ability to understand and translate it into something that is valuable, a skill that he speculates requires a broad perspective and the ability to look at problems holistically and to identify trends and patterns.

Fortunately for those looking to make the jump, both the technical skills and holistic approaches to data can be learned. You can do quite a lot just being self-taught. He mentions, too, Medium as a platform popular for publishers of data science-related materials and, for practice, Kaggle, which hosts datasets for exposure to data wrangling and task-oriented experience. Finally, personal projects are an invaluable way to learn and explore another interest in the process. A lot of different people need to work together on it.

Our students will certainly be a stepahead as they move on towards university and subsequently, the professional world. Perhaps one of them will improve voice transcription algorithms, help countries get out ahead of the next potential pandemic, or possibly work on the team that develops the next-generation in digital assistant technology.

The keys I have collected far outnumber the doors I have opened. At age seven, cherubic eyes may widen at the sight of a stuffed animal, or perhaps a multicolored lollipop. Yet somehow, my black irises did not follow this unsaid tradition; instead, they lit up at the sight of old keys, rusty and worn out from years of use. My delicate fingers served as a harsh contrast to the jumbled keys placed in them; for years my affinity for old keys would persist.

Any one of these keys may have been passed through the hands of several family generations, yet its unique teeth perfectly grab onto the keyhole of only a single door in the world. In retrospect, perhaps it was this knowledge that ignited fireworks of glee through my veins whenever my eyes caught. Tied to the deepest chambers of my heart was an eternal connection to each of these keys—only when I discovered the rich histories engraved into these individual keys did I finally let go.

Back then, there stood an answer next to every question; when I asked my keys where their houses lay, they just replied in a foreign language of ridges and curves. It was perhaps an innate behavior, this obsession with perfection. It was my obsession with orderliness that sent me on the very edge of chaos, a word foreign to my dictionary of seven years. I had been cruising along a railroad track repetitive and predictable, its linear path stabilizing my agitated young mind.

Yet the keys housed in. I was at war at five years old. I was at war with a deadly creature that threatened to snatch me from my dreams and wreak havoc. When the clock struck nine, its spindly fingers would reach up from underneath every so slowly, creating an element of dreadful suspense.

It was a creature that walked the bedroom floors of every child—the monster under my bed. Fire-hot blood rushing through my veins, I trembled underneath my sheets with my heart threatening to burst out of my body. A pool of fear gathered in my gut, paralyzing me until I was a lifeless statue lying on my bed. Yet behind the expressionless mask always hanging on my face was a never-ending universe of literature and philosophies acquired through books, art, and music.

With my mouth tightly shut, my brain blasted ideas through the silence, entertaining me to the fullest. Yet when I sought to voice these colorful, vivid ideas, out came a tumble of gibberish and stutters. So fluent was I in the language of thoughts, yet so awkward and unhappy I was in the language of conversation. It was this exact feeling of paralyzing fear that greeted me when my socially inept middle school self was faced with her greatest enemy—public speaking.

As one may predict, a migration of butterflies would get released into my stomach at the mere. My words felt worthless as if they were something to be tossed around and discarded. Soon I learned to stitch my mouth closed, believing that the world did not want to hear—it did not consider me worthy enough to listen to.

The foundations of self-esteem upon which man holds himself were as fragile as a china doll for me, my confidence shattering into a million shards by one incorrect answer or a single piece of criticism.

To fail this daunting speech in front of everyone seemed absolutely catastrophic to me. Failure, to me, further validated the sense of unintelligence and inadequacy I constantly felt towards myself.

As I walked to the front of the class, a deep crimson blush tinted my cheeks, heat rushing up to my face and ears. A thousand hands were clamped around my windpipe, rendering me unable to form any words.

I opened my mouth, my brain dissolving into a million different entities. And there I stood, an actress waiting to put on the greatest show on Earth. As my mouth opened, the tightly wound knots of ideas in my brain would ever so slightly loosen up, giving way for the wave of words I would speak.

To me, my works of writing, art, and music are more than fancy, eloquent pieces of art, but a slice of the universe of ideas I have yet to present to the world. And here I was, being able to speak these truths with confidence and zest, overcoming the fears of embarrassment and awkwardness. It was on that classroom floor that I was able to express the ideas my lips often swallowed back, the truths that my mouth had never uttered.

I spoke with true conviction, with emotion and expression. My mind, once a caged bird flying rampant in its cage, I was now flying. Years later, my fingers now journey across the jagged edges of each collected key, trying, somehow, to find the location of the house it belonged to. Perhaps there was something inscribed within the hot alkaline metals it had been molded from—a final fingerprint, or a family crest of some sort.

In times of adolescence, we are often keys waiting in a mason jar, the search for our individual doors never-ending. The jagged, rough edges of our keys itself are compasses to our identities—our final doors and destinations—but it constantly seems that we are in the wrong galaxy, in the wrong era, and in the hands of the wrong person.

We constantly long to find a single door whose ridges match ours, riddled with the notion that a perfect door awaits.

Riddled with the notion that a perfect girl exists. Yet all one needs is purpose—purpose that a seven-year-old may give to her teddy bear or perhaps, a jar of keys.

That is to say, that I have come to the realization that failure is a temporary roadblock to the wonders that wait ahead. That is to say, that I am a key waiting patiently within a jar of many others, ready to unlock all the unknowns in the world. My mindset has established the Sena I am now, molding the ridges of my key to fit any door, to combat any situation come my way.

Doors of opportunity come my way, I am now ready to venture out of my jar and unlock them. What kind of ecosystem might inhabit it? Who should get to live there? What industry might it support? This was the hypothetical problem fifth graders were recently tasked with solving.

Students began by designing individual models of their islands before forming groups to bring their designs together into a final concept.

They then created 2D map drawings on a coordinate grid to plan their islands. Using the concept of scale, students used these drawings to transfer their design to the large cardboard coordinate grids that they then built their islands upon. Students worked in the Creative Arts Design Center with design technology teacher Hardi Fichardt, using many different design tools, including the laser cutters and 3D printers, to create their islands.

Of course, a lot of cardboard, paint and hot-glue were also put to use. Islands were planned out by drawing maps to decide the location of important features. Energy needs and ecosystems were also considered and integrated, as students researched geographical features and biodiversity in order to create ecosystems and food chains on their island that would make sense.

Students used Newsela articles, websites, and videos to gather information and then wrote an island protection plan to keep their residents safe. QR codes on the models directed visitors to the presentations that detailed the choices each group had made and provided further information. Some groups presented outside to help with social distancing. Deserving students are nominated by faculty, counselors, and administrators at the end of the first semester, and invited to submit an essay describing the ways in which strength and courage played a role in their lives and in a project or initiative they had led.

Submissions are reviewed by the Child Protection Task Force composed of students, counselors, administrators, and members of the Board of Directors. Nominees are then interviewed by the task force, as part of the selection process. Ashley explains how she came upon this particular form of service. What I really liked about Hands On [Tokyo] in particular was that even if you are not the best at Japanese, people are willing to want to learn English and speak English with you and want to communicate.

We helped this local farmer with his crops and he was explaining to us how the tsunami had struck their town and so many people were missing and lost their lives.

So I think that was a very big moment for me and made me proud to be part of an organization that really focuses on the community here in Japan. And you get to learn about their experiences and their hardships. And then it is really rewarding knowing that you brought a smile to their face. Now, as a Northeastern University freshman, studying online for the first semester from Tokyo, Ashley continues to navigate the impact of COVID, which limited her volunteer work last spring in Tokyo.

She seeks events with personal interaction, the aspect of volunteering that she highly values. But because I am not on campus it is difficult finding opportunities where you can interact with people one-on-one because I prefer to interact with people rather than doing other types of service work. I just find it more meaningful when you get to talk to them and learn about their life.

Hopefully, by then COVID will be better and so I can find more opportunities and try out different things to find out what I want to do. Her deep desire to connect with others and uncover the less well-known challenges others face motivates her. What a pleasure it is to join such a welcoming and supportive community! In early spring, as the pandemic began to spread around the globe and independent schools debated how best to respond to the crisis, many that lacked a real culture of philanthropy drew back from fundraising.

While the costs of continuing to provide a first-class education rose, these schools, counterintuitively, decided to stop asking for help at the precise moment for which such funding is a necessity.

These numbers show a community that understands that, pandemic or no pandemic, bold aspirations have a real cost, and that those costs cannot be met by tuition revenue alone. Your continuing and growing financial support gives ASIJ confidence to reach further each year, in our ongoing effort to achieve our aspirations.

Please join me! Sea level is predicted to rise over the next century. Several areas of the Oregon coast are already vulnerable to high water levels because of their low elevations and proximity to the shoreline. Rising sea levels means increased erosion and more frequent and expanded flooding in the future.

An infrequent event today could become normal in the future. Understanding and documenting the extent and impacts of especially high tide events is one way to highlight the need to prepare for the effects of future climate conditions. The King Tides Project generates information that coastal communities can use to reduce vulnerabilities to rising sea levels.
