To prepare for that revolutionary leap, we need to draft software experts immediately who can leverage advances in cloud computing and machine learning while protecting patient privacy to start building open-source tools that will enable scientists to make major inroads on cancer.
Academic research is more theoretical and long-term; industrial research is more applied and short-term. If you want to have impact in a few months' time, industry is the place for you. If you want to work on the deep problems and have a shot at very high impact, go to academia.
The fourth industrial revolution is using digital technology to revolutionize almost every part of our life at an unprecedented pace. But one of the biggest implications is just how harmful this revolution may be to the progress of women because they are underrepresented in tech.
What we count is what we value, the old adage goes. But what about what we mistakenly overlook? As we mark Computer Science Education Week, it's worth...
There are many obstacles, but I should say we are so much farther along now than we were 3 years ago when I started working on this.
All parents should understand the critical role that they play in shaping their students' mindset for lifelong learning and see the power of computer science to make our lives and the lives of those around us better.

Ada Lovelace Day is an opportunity to celebrate women in the STEM fields. Is there still such a need to talk about them? If we look back at a number of attention-grabbing headlines on topics over the past year, there's still a lot to talk about.
Computers, computational algorithms, new forms of computing such as quantum computing, and the aggregation of large amounts of measured data have set the stage for new discoveries and insights about the world around us and in us.
We are no longer in the age of etiquette dinners and coming of age balls, but rather have entered a beautiful era of programming and engineering. This is an essential guide crafted to teach young women how to properly learn to code.
The first half of the information age was programming computers to do what we want. In the second half of the information age computers will pr...
If you're a Ray Donovan fan, surely you've seen Nikola Kent kick some ass. I beat him up with crazy interview questions but I had to narrow the interview down so you'll never get to know how I asked him out, what he said, and why he will stay clear of me for the rest of his life.
I learned a lot at the PennApps hackathon. Sitting in on several talks, meeting hundreds of new people and gaining great inspiration, my first hackathon is an experience that I will never forget.
