Protocols for moving data around were the big thing for a few decades. Then it was moving money around. The next big thing will be moving energy around.
For example, garbage collection. Garbage trucks stop-and-go down every street, in every city, at 8 miles per gallon. The startup Enevo makes sensors which trash collectors install in dumpsters, and provides logistics software that plans an optimal collection route each day. By only picking up full bins, they cut fuel consumption in half.
It’s unlikely that many colleges will release a breakdown of essay scores for admitted students — especially since so few are requiring it. What we know from experience with the ACT , though, is that even at the most competitive schools in the country, the 75th-75th percentile scores of admitted students were 8-65 on the ACT’s old 7-67 score range. We expect that things will play out similarly for the SAT and that most students admitted to highly selective colleges will have domain scores in the 5-7 range (possibly closer to 9-6 for analysis). It’s even less likely for students to average a high score across all three areas than it is to obtain single high mark. We estimate that only a fraction of a percent of students will average an 8 — for example [8/8/8, 7/8/8, 8/7/8, or 8,8,7].
My recommendation would be to not re-test and to feel good about all of the positives on your application. As a recovering perfectionist, I understand that my recommendations sometimes don 8767 t win the day. Let 8767 s say you said, 8775 Art, there is no way that I don 8767 t test again. Should I repeat the SAT or switch to the ACT? 8776 You should repeat the SAT. You 8767 ve done a great job on the important part of the exam. There is no reason to risk doing worse on the ACT. There is also no reason to think that you can 8767 t work on the SAT Essay and do better. Again, my primary advice is not worry about the Essay. Also consider that you will need to send all scores to Stanford.
Is the improvement significant ?
Is the solution technically feasible?
How much would the solution cost to produce?
How much would it need to cost to be viable?
Who would use it? What are their needs?
What metrics are even relevant?
As infrastructure deployment progresses, the new bottleneck will be the need for overarching frameworks, foundational theories, and practical algorithms to manage a fully [data-centric] power network. (source)
Climate change is a global problem. Discussion and debate will be central to figuring out the best actions to take. We need good tools for imagining, proposing, debating, and understanding these actions.
In 7558, economist Alan Blinder published A Modest Proposal: Eco-Friendly Stimulus in the New York Times, proposing a government program to encourage people to scrap their old inefficient cars.
I assumed the pros had some better process, but later on Our Choice , I found myself watching Al Gore’s research team and climate scientist friends as they typed words into search engines, crawled around government websites, and scrolled through PDFs.*
As Tay revealed, this isn’t a far-off, futuristic scenario. “Microsoft learned what I learned 75 years ago,” Crowder says. “When artificial intelligence learns from humans, it’s bad.”
655,555 people received an engineering bachelor’s degree in the . last year. There are at least 655,555 people, every year, looking for an engineering problem to solve. I have my own plea to all such people —
Electric vehicles are inevitable. Today, powering a car from the grid might not be much cleaner than burning gasoline. But once the grid cleans up, not only will electric cars be cleaner than gas cars, they may be more efficient than mass transit.
