The first thing to acknowledge about diversity is that it can be difficult.

How Diversity Makes Us Smarter

In the U.S., where the dialogue of inclusion is relatively advanced, even the mention of the word “diversity” can lead to anxiety and conflict. Supreme Court justices disagree on the virtues of diversity and the means for achieving it. Corporations spend billions of dollars to attract and manage diversity both internally and externally, yet they still face discrimination lawsuits, and the leadership ranks of the business world remain predominantly white and male. It is reasonable to ask what good diversity does us. Diversity of expertise confers benefits that are obvious—you would not think of building a new car without engineers, designers and quality-control experts—but what about social diversity?

The fact is that if you want to build teams or organizations capable of innovating, you need diversity. Research on large, innovative organizations has shown repeatedly that this is the case.

What is the value of a scientific article?

In order to maintain its sustainability, all mass use of content by commercial or not for profit companies must be done in agreement with figshare. Seminar given in Nice, France, 19th November 2014 (in French). English abstract: The advent of things like digital content, the internet and the movements on open access and open science has profoundly changed the playing field in the dissemination of science.

Nevertheless, the scientific article remains the dominating way to validate and to diffuse scientific endeavors, and the central components in evaluation of science are still the journal impact factor, and various forms of publication and citation statistics.

I really don’t know how a news editor should choose what stories to put in front of people, because I don’t think it’s possible to cram the entire world into headlines.

Who should see what when? Three principles for personalized news

The publisher of a major international newspaper once told me that he delivers “the five or six things I absolutely have to know this morning.” But there was always a fundamental problem with that idea, which the Internet has made starkly obvious: There is far more that matters than any one of us can follow. In most cases, the limiting factor in journalism is not what was reported but the attention we can pay to it. Yet we still need news. Something’s got to give. If not every person sees the same news at the same time, then the question becomes: Who should see what when? You specifically go looking for it.It affects you or any of your communities.There is something you might be able to do about it.

Interest, effects, agency. Too much that matters Compared to the news, there is simply very little attention available. Making Web applications more efficient. Most major websites these days maintain huge databases: Shopping sites have databases of inventory and customer ratings, travel sites have databases of seat availability on flights, and social-networking sites have databases of photos and comments.

Making Web applications more efficient

Almost any transaction on any of these sites requires multiple database queries, which can slow response time. This week, at the 38th International Conference on Very Large Databases — the premier database conference — researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory presented a new system that automatically streamlines websites’ database access patterns, making the sites up to three times as fast. And where other systems that promise similar speedups require the mastery of special-purpose programming languages, the MIT system, called Pyxis, works with the types of languages already favored by Web developers.
