    I was watching a video that explained how computers processed new information, and how some of these processes are comparable to the human brain. That got me into this article, which talks about how our computers can't fully think on their own yet, but in the future, may be able to perform several tasks at the same time, as neurons do.

    I thought this was a great article that goes incredibly in depth about a lot of the internal debates and conversations within Facebook, and the company's decision making in adapting to the progression of technology. It would be impossible for Facebook to stay as a social media platform while having such strong involvement in advertisements and businesses. The more people who utilize Facebook, the bigger Facebook's responsibility and role is in order to define what "Facebook" really is. Its current motto is "bringing the world closer," which has been challenged already by politics and opinions on the company itself (algorithms). 


    All of these difficult issues and drama are bound to arise the more people engage with Facebook, and because the company has such a large presence both in and out of the tech industry, leaking into journalism, politics, businesses, etc., it no longer can take a safe route without damaging or offending opinions. I really think Zuckerberg cares a lot about what Facebook has become, and is deeply contemplating what the next step for Facebook should be to amend what happened in the past two years. His move to shift over the algorithm to prioritize family and friends over businesses is his first step, and while businesses protest and some users disagree, in order to protect the greater users from "side effects" of the media/fake news and from events over the past two years, Facebook will have to reconsider its mission from a different POV, not just as a social media platform.

    For web app development, I think Python would be a great starter coding language! It was one of my first languages I've learned and enjoyed, especially due to the readability nature of the syntax. Python can also be very flexible for coders on all levels, from beginners to experts in the tech industry. It would be easy to teach concepts and run it on Python, which would help given that your audience is super young! 


    I'm not experienced enough in mobile app development to recommend a suitable language, but I think it would be a much harder task to teach middle schoolers as opposed to learning and grasping the fundamentals of programming. It would be really cool if anyone had recommendations in mobile app development though! I'm interested in finding out as well.

    I found this article after attending a club meeting where our guest speaker was a Data Scientist at Netflix. I found her work in the field fascinating, especially when she mentioned how she took large amounts of data and wrote code to automate analysis, or how companies with such massive inputs of consumer data store this information. I was astonished when she brought up the fact that women make up only 16%-25% of data jobs at major tech companies. Given how integral data science is to machine learning and in managing big data, I feel that this highlights the need for more exposure to this field. Personally, I was extremely inspired when she mentioned how she started out in a completely different major and transitioned into data science later in her career by teaching herself languages like SQL, R, and Python.

    This is a great question! In my opinion, a good introductory programming language for an absolute beginner has a few characteristics:


    1. It is general-purpose - some languages are focused on a very specific task, while others are general and can do almost anything, though maybe not as well as the single-purpose languages. When a language is general purpose, you learn how to think like a programmer. When a language is single-purpose, you learn how to think in that particular language. Of course you want to learn to think in that particular language, but thinking like a programmer is the real lesson here. Once you think like a programmer, you can accomplish almost anything you can dream up.
    2. It is easy to read - a heuristic here is "does it look like English?"
    3. It is easy to understand - similar to the 1st characteristic but a heuristic here is when a beginner is given a piece of code in this language, does it mean what they think it means?
    4. It is easy to setup - in order to begin programming in this language, how many things do you have to do and how simple/complex are those things?
    5. It has a big community - as a beginner, you generally do not want to start learning a language that only 2 people know in the world

    Okay, now that I've listed out all of those things, my recommendation is Ruby. Check it out at https://www.ruby-lang.org!

    Although this interview with Melinda Gates came out a while ago, it's incredibly powerful and draws attention to the problems that women in tech constantly face. I'm sure many were angered after comments from a former male google employee on the merits of women engineers, and rightfully so. Gates' perspective shows how gender disparity in the computer science/engineering field continues to grow and why this is happening. Another statistic she mentioned was really disturbing - the fact that only 3% of companies led by women get funding from venture capitalists. This just shows that so many women have the potential to become the next Mark Zuckerberg or Steve Jobs, but at put at a significant disadvantage simply because of their biological gender. I did a little more digging and found that not only do few women receive VC money, the amount they get is also less: around 70 million dollars to 100 million dollars for men. However, despite this great disparity, I believe women tech entrepreneurs do have hope in the form of prominent women like Melinda Gates who both vocally and financially support budding executives.

    This article discusses a joint research undertaking with IBM and other research universities/scientists to expand computing power to study links between bacteria and the causes of autoimmune diseases. The effort is a part of the World Community Grid project, which crowdsources computing power, where anyone can run software that conducts virtual experiments. The vast scale exemplifies the ever increasing role of computing in the scientific world. I think it's really interesting how something as simple as loaning your computer for research efforts can make a difference in the world.

    As a research intern, part of my work involves taking data from various sensors. This got me thinking, What else are sensors used for? I decided to do a little bit of digging online and found that one of the most common household objects with a truckload of sensors is a cell phone. It's incredible how hardware and software work together so well to make a sensor (or any gadget really) function. Here are some more examples of sensors being used in daily life: How accelerometers are used in motion sensing gaming devices like the wii remote: http://scienceline.org/2006/12/motioncontrollers/ Burglar alarms http://home.howstuffworks.com/home-improvement/household-safety/security/burglar-alarm2.htm

    The other day, I heard someone talking about how there is IoT technology for a toothbrush that connects to your phone and monitors you how well you are brushing your teeth. Although the idea seems really crazy, it isn't much of a surprise since IoT is popping up in all areas of life. As for me, I'll stick to my regular old toothbrush! :P

    For my history final project last semester, we were instructed to give a speech on an influential figure in American history. I had heard that Grace Hopper was one of the early figures in computer science, so I decided to choose her. As I started researching, I learned that she not only brought forth the idea of a compiler, but truly revolutionized computer science and its scope, and that she is the reason we have programmer friendly languages and user friendly devices. Her story is truly inspiring, especially the fact that she, a woman in the early 1900s, gained so much respect and admiration for her monumental work. She demonstrates that women can make important contributions in the tech field as well.
