What would college rankings look like in an artificial intelligence assessment? Take a look.

    College Rankings Revisited: What Might an Artificial Intelligence Think? -
    This post is from guest contributor Steve Lattanzio from MetaMetrics. While we do not tend to cover college rankings at e-Literate, we do care about transparency in usage of data as well as understanding opportunities where technology and data might inform students, faculty, administrators and the general educational community.

Earth and Environmental Sciences researcher Paul K. Strother and a team of scientists have discovered evidence that primitive moths and butterflies existed during the Jurassic period, approximately 50 million years before the first flowering plants. Their report, published in Scientific Advances, sheds new light on one of the most confounding cases of co-evolution. Read more in The New York Times:

    Finding the Oldest Fossils of Butterflies Using a Human Nose Hair
    But in analyzing the murky solution they stumbled upon a new mystery: several unknown scales were left behind in the gunk. The team soon discovered that the scales belonged to long extinct relatives of modern butterflies and moths. Mr. van Eldijk was tasked with fishing out more, and for that job he was given a dissection probe with a single nostril hair.

    On the cusp of becoming the then-winningest college hockey coach in history, Len Ceglarski shrugged off praise to focus on gratitude.
