  2. The unreasonable effectiveness of Random Forests.
  3. Anna Nagurney’s post on why she has fallen in love with Sweden.
  4. What it’s like as a “girl” in the lab: from the New York Times.
  5. Math-inspired art from Wired includes Bob Bosch’s TSP art
  6. Make craftier engineers: Why students should learn to sew in STEM classes
  7. Yes, androids dream of electric sheep – a Guardian article about how Google set up a feedback look in its image classification algorithms
