Kaum jemand kennt sie. Und dennoch hat man täglich mit ihnen zu tun. Wer an einem Bankautomaten Geld abhebt, wer einen Flug bucht, wer mit der Deutschen Bahn unterwegs ist: Immer arbeiten im Hintergrund Mainframes, welche die wirklich entscheidende Arbeit verrichten und dafür sorgen, dass alles sicher und ohne Datenverlust vonstatten geht. Mehr als 70 Prozent der Global 500 arbeiten mit diesen Großrechnern.

How do we infer which genes orchestrate various processes in the cell? How did humans migrate out of Africa and spread around the world? In this class, we will see that these two seemingly different questions can be addressed using similar algorithmic and machine learning techniques arising from the general problem of dividing data points into distinct clusters.

For three decades and longer we have heard educators and technologists making a case for the transformative power of technology in learning. However, despite the rhetoric, in many ways and at most institutional sites, education is still relatively untouched by technology. Even when technologies are introduced, the changes sometimes seem insignificant and the results seem disappointing. If the print textbook is replaced by an e-book, do the social relations of knowledge and learning necessarily change at all or for the better? If the pen-and-paper test is mechanized, does this change the nature of our assessment systems? Technology, in other words, need not necessarily bring significant change. Technology might not even represent a step forward in education.
