Une étude du Pew Research Institute qui montrent des différences importantes et fortement teintées d'idéologie, entre les opinions des scientifiques et celles du grand public.
Despite broadly similar views about the overall place of science in America, there are striking differences between the public and scientists’ views on a host of science-related issues, from whether genetically modified foods are safe to eat to whether the world's growing population will be a major problem.

A short article in Communications of the ACM by Chris Edwards which insists on scalable architectures, use of CPUs, vs GPUs, vs FGPAs and new architectures based on Gaussian processes.

A very nice paper by two physicists in the New York Times about a shift of theoretical physics towards becoming not subject to experimental proof. Indeed, these theoretical developments may be elegant but without experimental evidence those are either mathematics or metaphysics but could hardly considered science. 
Does science always need empirical evidence?

In a recent talk, the president of Stanford University, John Hennessy, predicted that vocational and continuing education will primarily be delivered with online technologies. I particularly liked when he mentions that research shows that videos of a flipped classroom could be as effective as traditional lecture and might even solve the problem of distracted students who sit through large lectures "with short attention spans" and spend their time doing other activities than take their course. #mooc, #education

Un article fort intéressant dans le New-York Times sur un glissement vers une physique théorique non soumise à la preuve expérimentale. En effet, ces développements théoriques sont peut-être élégants mais sans preuve expérimentale ce sont ou bien des mathématiques ou de la métaphysique mais difficilement de la science.

Dans un discours récent, le président de l'Université Stanford, John Hennessy, prédit que la formation professionnelle et continue se fera principalement avec des technologies en ligne. J'ai particulièrement apprécié le passage où il mentionne que la recherche montre que les vidéos d'une classe inversée sont aussi efficaces qu'un cours en classe et pourraient même régler le problème des étudiants distraits assis dans de vastes amphithéâtres et qui passent leur temps à faire d'autres activités que de suivre leur cours. #clom   #moocfr   #mooc   #educationaltechnology
