Data privacy or information privacy is a branch of data security concerned with the proper handling of data – consent, notice, and regulatory obligations. To protect data privacy, companies are now required to determine what data privacy acts and laws affect their users. For instance, we must know where the data originated (country and state), what personally identifiable information it might contain and usage methodology. The data privacy regulations include 
A popular running joke about software engineers (specifically coders) in India is about how there are times in their lives where he/she will have to work the entire night ("night-out") to write code. One of my few night-out was last Saturday night (Sunday morning).Yi and I, along with a couple of our friends participated in the Columbia Data Science Society's annual data science hackathon which was held from Saturday (21st) evening to Sunday (22nd) afternoonThe event started at around 7:00PM on Saturday where we were welcomed to the hackathon and a co...
As part of my review research for my first project on Fall 2019, "Auto-tagging of TCR records", I began to find a distinct pattern in the papers that I read. Most of the papers hinted that the machine learning algorithms that they developed to tag blogs, research papers, news links and other textual data performed better than the tags provided by the authors of those documents. I am writing this blog post to explain about document tagging, autotagging and how claim mentioned above might be true in a senseTaggingWikipedia [1] de...
Inspired by the conversation my group had during the DnR about Montessori schools and self-directed learning, I found myself looking through a set of YouTube videos from this one school called the Bowman School in Palo Alto. The Montessori method is typically pretty against utilizing digital technology for learning, and the Bowman School is no different. However, as it's in the heart of Silicon Valley, of course it includes coding in the curriculum, starting from Kindergarten. There have been articles we've posted in High 5 over the years about how Silicon Valley parents and tech moguls
Are we at the point where no further innovation will be introduced for the smart phone? According to this piece in TechCrunch, the days of innovation in smart phones are over and we must move on to something else. I can think of at least a half dozen capacities (some hardware, some software) that could be added to smart phones that w...
With growing concerns about the use or misuse of individual data by major online companies, it is becoming more challenging than ever to eliminate such companies and their applications from everyday work online.  A recent lifehacker piece discusses strategies for reducing or eliminating reliance on Google and i...
The Future Technologies Conference (FTC) presents the best of current systems research and practice, emphasizing innovation and quantified experience. FTC has emerged as the foremost world-wide gathering of academic researchers, Ph.D. and graduate students, top research think tanks and industry technology developers.

Social interactions between students are a major and under-explored part of education. Understanding how learning relationships form in undergraduate classrooms, as well as the impacts these relationships have on learning outcomes, can inform educators in unique ways and improve educational reform. Social network analysis (SNA) provides the necessary tool kit for investigating questions involving relational data. In my recent case study of Gary's class, ...
Last Week, Patrick and I went to the SmashingConf held in the Midtown. SmashingConf is a great event focusing on design and front-end filed.The conference is one track, two-day event with two days workshop. Amazing speakers including John Meade( as Mystery Speaker),  Debbie Millman (will run for NYC mayor election?! ) shared knowledge including how to coop between designe...
