Learnings from 12 Hour Hackathon

We’re exactly like Artificial Intelligence.

Deep learning, specifically.

One of the core parts of deep learning is reinforcement learning. It’s similar to operant conditioning in psychology where we’re rewarded or punished based on a set of behaviors. …

How NLP and Predictive Analysis Can Help Retain + Perform on Exams

Students spend 4–5 hours each day, studying. Teachers spend 2–3 hour each day, preparing for class.

It’s obvious that these aren’t positive numbers. Both processes are highly ineffective and for students, most of their studying isn’t done correctly.

In the cost-benefit analysis of what students should focus on, they’ve chosen…

summer seems to be a time of high velocity, accelerating speed and direction faster than other points of the year. the unique juxtaposition between summer and the 9 months that sandwich this middle of the year time is my focus on priorities symmetrically increases with the items I attempt to…

Habits are the compound interest of improvement or sabotaging behavior. We dictate how we build these loops.

In a conversation with a founder in the San Francisco education market, she stated that more schools are repping students to create bad habits at scale vs. good habits. …
