The AI revolution

This article explores the areas of bias in natural language processing, from the tools that are used to analyze the data to the fundamental theories in the field. It delves deeper into the very idea that the data that is analyzed (language) itself shapes human perception of reality, and evolves over time.

Mixing things up

We've been experimenting with a new editorial model. Previously, issues of XRDS have been directed by one or two Feature Editors, who have a particular interest in a subject area. For example, James Stanier headed up the "Changing Face of Programming" issue; Michael Bernstein and Inbal Talgam put together the "Comp-YOU-ter" issue on Human Computation. Being an Issue Editor means lots of conversations with the XRDS team to figure out themes, tracking down and inviting experts to contribute articles, and reviewing articles submitted through our online portal.

After reading this issue, I had to seriously reevaluate my perception and definition of cloud computing. Unsurprisingly, given the wide array of computing models it encompasses, agreement among even experts is somewhat elusive.

How to succeed in graduate school

This paper attempts to raise some issues that are important for graduate students to be successful and to get as much out of the process as possible, and for advisors who wish to help their students be successful. The intent is not to provide prescriptive advice-no formulas for finishing a thesis or twelve-step programs for becoming a better advisor are given-but to raise awareness on both sides of the advisor-student relationship as to what the expectations are and should be for this relationship, what a graduate student should expect to accomplish, common problems, and where to go if the advisor is not forthcoming.
