Big Data & Higher Education: How Are They Connected?

In this contributed article, freelance human Avery Phillips points out the many ways that higher education is incorporating big data to make the educational experience better for students. Big data is helping to improve responses to learning style, benefit targeted enrollment, and increase retention rates.

Competition Uses AI to Combat Inequities in Early Childhood Education

Booz Allen Hamilton, Kaggle and PBS KIDS launched the fifth annual Data Science Bowl. This 90-day competition challenges thousands of data scientists and researchers from around the world to apply the power of artificial intelligence to combat inequities in early childhood education (ECE). More specifically, participants will create AI algorithms using anonymous gameplay data from the PBS KIDS Measure Up! App, which helps young children build math skills, to better understand children’s unique learning styles.

Models for Thinking: An Example of Why Data Sciences Increasingly Need the Humanities

Parsing such large-scale data sets – classifying genomic sequences, mapping forms of advertisement, observing online discussions, etc. – is a matter of organization: How do you make sense of, and classify, these clusters of information? The answer, often, is to configure them into abstract but coherent topics.
