Drop-in Workshop: Have your Pi…Now What? | random computing | Scoop.it

Aim  -    What can you do with that Raspberry Pi this half term, you brought it but never got around to using?

  

  This is one of the two Raspberry Pi focused parallel session being run on 30th October2014 by BCS Northampton. In this session some basic example activities will be shown and facilitated. It is an informal drop-in session, so come have a try at some simple programming and control with the Raspberry Pi. All based around a fun, free programming language Scratch (scratch.mit.edu).

Sudoku, Linear Optimization, and the Ten Cent Diet

Sudoku, Linear Optimization, and the Ten Cent Diet | random computing | Scoop.it

In 1945, future Nobel laureate George Stigler wrote an essay in the Journal of Farm Economics titled The Cost of Subsistence about a seemingly simple problem: how could a soldier be fed for as little money as possible?

The “Stigler Diet” became a classic problem in the then-new field of linear optimization, which is used today in many areas of science and engineering. Any time you have a set of linear constraints such as “at least 50 square meters of solar panels” or “the amount of paint should equal the amount of primer” along with a linear goal (e.g., “minimize cost” or “maximize customers served”), that’s a linear optimization problem.

At Google, our engineers work on plenty of optimization problems. One example is our YouTube video stabilization system, which uses linear optimization to eliminate the shakiness of handheld cameras. A more lighthearted example is in the Google Docs Sudoku add-on, which instantaneously generates and solves Sudoku puzzles inside a Google Sheet, using the SCIP mixed integer programming solver to compute the solution

THE Scholarly Web - Moocs: a hype too far?

Is it time to move “beyond the silly hype” about massive open online courses?

Ferdinand von Prondzynski, vice-chancellor of Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, thinks so. He took to his website, A University Blog, to make that very point.

“A year or two ago a number of people who wanted to grab a bit of public attention in higher education claimed loudly that MOOCs (‘massive open online courses’) were the future, and that all universities would have to go down this route,” he writes – linking to Times Higher Education article from last year in which Don Nutbeam, vice-chancellor of the University of Southampton, urged institutions to produce Moocs or face dire consequences. “It’s Mooc or die. More to the point, do it quickly,” Professor Nutbeam said at the time.

Despite the lack of a declared business plan for both universities and Mooc platforms, Professor von Prondzynski continues, “the hype continued to roll and seemed to have the capacity to persuade rational commentators that MOOCs were the future
