Probably me just being geeky, but I drive past this sign everyday to work and it still makes me smile...  Firstly that in the 4 years it has been there I've not once seen a glider; and secondly the stated precision of 2.25 miles in which a free flying object might suddenly appear in the sky :)

Random fact of the day...
Today I'm in Tallinn (capital city of Estonia) a very beautiful city with cobbled alleyways and medieval architecture which I've just learnt is also the birthplace of Skype.

So now you know (if you didn't!). Enjoy your day :)

Sorry to have missed this today!

Really enjoyed discussing some of the more fun, practical and real-life applications of OR with a group of 16-18 year olds at the Young People's Programme at the British Science Festival this morning with +Louise Orpin and a scary +Noel-Ann Bradshaw (or should I say 'Florence'). +Paul Harper's real-life similation excercise (getting the students themselves to act as germs moving around the classroom, simulating the spread of disease) went down a treat, although we still had a few 'infected' students left at the end!___Sorry to have missed this today!

Was great fun to make :) 

Lecturing how to ride a bike wouldn't work.

Here's +Paul Harper's awesome video about active learning.

The awesome cast includes his children and the underlying plot being how to learn to ride a bike. Really great video, very funny and passing on a very important message. If you are at all interested in education you should spend some time (<5 minutes) watching this.

It's my 23rd birthday (yet again...) today, so seems as good a time as any to start brushing up on my French and wanting to learn some Portuguese too (off to Brazil with work soon so could come in useful). Been using +Duolingo app on my phone which I'd totally recommend. Getting into the habit of a grabbing a few minutes each day to learn :)

So I think I'll now work from home the rest of this week instead of battling my way each day driving past the Celtic Manor resort and on into Cardiff. The Celtic Manor (Newport) is home to this week's NATO summit (4-5 Sept) and will be the largest gathering of international leaders ever to take place in Britain: 60 world leaders, 70 foreign ministers, 70 defence ministers and 28 NATO member countries (plus 1,200 journalists/media) and who knows how many protestors...    I've never seen so many police in one area and moving around is becoming tricky.  But hey, it's good for Wales apparently... :)

The Celtic Manor (Newport) is home to this week's NATO summit (4-5 Sept) and will be the largest gathering of international leaders ever to take place in Britain: 60 world leaders, 70 foreign ministers, 70 defence ministers and 28 NATO member countries (plus 1,200 journalists/media) and who knows how many protestors...    I've never seen so many police in one area and moving around is becoming tricky.  But hey, it's good for Wales apparently... :)

A European-wide* competition for undergraduate and postgraduate students working in the mathematical sciences to convey the potential influence of their work.

* "Entrants must be registered for a first or higher degree and studying at a European university on 16th October 2014. They need not be working in a department of mathematics, but their research must be mathematical in nature. Entries can be drawn from all areas of pure and applied mathematics, statistics or operational research. It is anticipated that in many cases the research that underpins entries will be work in progress."

Whenever I'm taking an inquiry-based learning (IBL) approach in my classes, it is important to get student buy-in.  I often refer to this as "marketing IBL".  My typical approach to marketing involves having a dialogue with my students, where I ask them leading questions in the hope that at the end of our discussion the students will have told me that something like IBL is exactly what we should be doing.  

I usually just wing it on day one and it's been different every time. However, I've had several people ask me to describe exactly what I do and I also thought it would be a good exercise for me to think carefully about what I was going to say tomorrow in my classes;)

Mathematics and its connection with development

50 years ago there were only single digit numbers of mathematics papers per year in international journals from Korea. Now they are rightfully viewed as in the top 10 or so worldwide. They see this value in the development in maths as close to their massive industrial development.

"I tell students that the most important part of their thesis or dissertation defenses are the 30 seconds when they summarize the key contributions of their research at the beginning of the dissertation".  
Too true.  As an external examiner it's usually the first question I ask anyhow if the student hasn't already summarised their research objectives and key contributions in a mostly non-technical manner.  Of course we get on to the technical aspects in detail, but the layperson summary is an important skill - so often students, having naturally been so engrossed in their research for several years, are unable to do this in a succinct way.

Operational Research conferences can be extremely beneficial to those without a mathematical background. Well worth a read of John Frankish's (the lead of the Mathematical Modelling Unit at ABCi, Aneurin Bevan UHB) blog, reflecting on the recent ORAHS conference, explaining how he's now recognised that maths is more than just about numbers and how it can be used to improve patient care.

So very sad to hear about the death of Robin Williams. REQUIESCAT IN PACE (Rest In Peace)

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, 
Old time is still a-flying: 
And this same flower that smiles to-day 
To-morrow will be dying.

The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun, 
The higher he's a-getting,
The sooner will his race be run, 
And nearer he's to setting.

That age is best which is the first, 
When youth and blood are warmer; 
But being spent, the worse, and worst 
Times still succeed the former.

Then be not coy, but use your time, 
And while ye may, go marry: 
For having lost but once your prime 
You may for ever tarry.___One of my favourite movies - it really spoke to me as a 16 yo when it was released.  Was only just chatting to +Vincent Knight about this movie when I sat down and the first thing that appeared in my G+ stream was this post.   Good Will Hunting is another totally awesome watch (possibly my all-time fav).

Citizen Science

The Azimuth Code Project is a friendly gang of hackers and geeks. We're studying a new method of El Niño prediction that uses a "climate network".  We replicated the software used in a paper about this method, and we made it open-source.  Then a statistician named Steven Wenner jumped in and examined the results!  Check it out here:

http://johncarlosbaez.wordpress.com/2014/07/23/el-nino-project-part-6/

Very roughly, when the red curve goes over the horizontal line, the method predicts an El Niño in the following year - a blue spike.  But sometimes it doesn't work, and there are weird borderline cases.

Wenner ran some statistical tests on this method, and then +Jan Galkowski jumped in and ran a bunch more, using sophisticated Bayesian ideas.  You can read about that in the comments. 

There's a lot of buzz about citizen science these days - how ordinary folks can contribute to scientific projects by collecting data or running software.  It's a great trend...  but I'm enjoying how extraordinary folks are joining the Azimuth Project and helping us out with their special skills. 

We need all the help we can get, that's for sure.  Most of all we could use advice from some climate scientists.  But it would also be great if we had more folks who enjoyed explaining techniques from math, statistics, and machine learning.  For example, Dara Shayda just used 'continuous wavelet analysis' to study patterns in the air pressure at two locations important for El Niños.  Since I'm the main writer in the gang, I had to write this up, which required learning about continuous wavelet analysis and figuring out how to explain it - explaining stuff is a big part of the project.  I did it, and I enjoyed it, but there's too much for me to do!  We could go faster with another good writer.___#CitizenScience

Summer Science

Now that it is the long Summer break in the Northern Hemisphere, parents, grandparents and others looking after Primary School children may be looking for fun projects to work on together.  If they search for Science projects online to help prepare the kids for their technological and scientific futures whilst having fun, they may find that there are surprisingly few that actually stimulate experimentation and scientific thinking.  Apparently, according to Alom Shaha, most simply reproduce a sensational demonstration and fail to explore the "What if?" potential  and observing, discovering and discussing the results. 

Working together with The Royal Institution, already famous for its video series, Alom Shaha has produced a series of videos, colourful workbooks, certificates and badges that encourage scientific investigation in the young but still require only simple household materials.

While many parents read with their children at home and perhaps engage in arts and crafts activities, few have the confidence to carrying out science-based activities with their children. Keen parents can turn to books or the internet to help them find science activities to do with their children (you can find lots of websites that will tell you how to inflate a balloon using baking soda and vinegar and provide a scientific "explanation" of what happens). However, such resources are often limited because they neglect to emphasise some crucial aspects of doing science: looking closely at the world, asking questions, and actually experimenting by identifying variables and seeing what happens when you change them.

I'm hoping that "ExpeRimental", a project I've been working on with the Royal Institution, might be different. We have made a series of short films that show parents doing science-based activities with their children. Unlike many online videos purporting to show "science experiments you can do at home", our films, and the accompanying online resources, focus more on the approach to doing the activity, rather than on recreating a particular phenomenon and parroting its "explanation".

Couldn't say it any better than +Buddhini Samarasinghe.  

Favourite comment on original post (by +Gustavo Olivares):  "I think that scientists trivializing public engagement are damaging to Science.".

Is Engaging in Science Outreach Damaging to Scientists?

A few years ago, I started posting about science publicly on Google+. I did it in my spare time because as a scientist, it was obviously a topic I was interested in. I also found the public ignorance about science particularly depressing. This, coupled with a woeful misrepresentation of science on the part of many science journalists on popular media meant that even if the public cared enough to read about science, they would be ill-informed by sensationalised over-hyped articles. There was only one solution, as I saw it - the scientists themselves should engage directly with the public. This has always been my personal motto when it came to doing science outreach (http://goo.gl/Ts8oYf and http://goo.gl/W1XKHT). 

So it is with dismay that I read this 'joke' article on Genome Biology by Neil Hall (http://goo.gl/oX52dI). In it, he defines the K-index (Kardashian Index) as:

“a measure of discrepancy between a scientist’s social media profile and publication record based on the direct comparison of numbers of citations and Twitter followers.”  A high K-index indicates that the scientist may have built their reputation on a shaky foundation, while a low K- index indicates that the scientist is not being given credit where credit is due.

An unfortunate consequence of the K-index is that it is damaging to other scientists who genuinely engage in science outreach on social media. Scientists are evaluated by their publication records. People who have a low K-index will likely be older and well-established. Someone who started publishing 30 years ago and just joined Twitter will have a very low K-index. On the other hand, early career researchers who haven't published a lot but engage in outreach can appear to have a high K-index. The author also advises people that "if your K-index gets above 5, then it’s time to get off Twitter and write those papers". Never mind that only 1% of scientists regularly publish one paper a year (http://goo.gl/yvd1Yv). Do we really want the other 99% of scientists to stop writing about science on social media?

I understand that this paper was 'semi-serious'. I understand that there are certain science outreach 'personalities' on social media who regularly over-estimate their popularity and importance. But I can already imagine how this index can be used to patronise young researchers who engage in outreach. I can imagine the smirks from senior scientists at job interview panels and evaluation committees. 

This 'joke' article is only funny if you are a senior tenured professor with lots of papers and yet have a low follower count on social media. "Ha ha, let's laugh at those silly scientists doing social media outreach when they should be writing papers!" The K-index trivialises those of us who work hard to communicate science with the public. 

I don't earn anything from doing outreach. It doesn't benefit me professionally. I don't have better job prospects because I have an audience. I do it because as a scientist, I feel I have a duty to directly engage with the public. Doing outreach doesn't harm me either. I hate to think that someday, it might. I hate to think that I might be taken less seriously because I do this. I especially hate to think that other young researchers might be discouraged from engaging in outreach because of this. 

Thanks to +Tommy Leung for the discussion that inspired this post.

Spending most of the day meeting the whole research team on the PISA study. Interesting discussions on understanding the nature and range of patient safety incidents in primary care leading to harm (i.e some sobering statistics already being reported from the study on the probability of avoidable harm caused just by seeing your GP...). Multi-disciplinary but can see opportunities for text mining (harm reports), temporal analysis of harm and causality modelling, and possible game theory for incentives for reporting harm/behavioural aspects.

Neat :)

'Telling people how to walk is simply not British.'

The +BBC News recently published a funky piece entitled: 'Advice for foreigners on how Britons walk' (http://goo.gl/VpRJ3Z) in which they comment on the fact that there is apparently no real rule in the UK as to which side of the pavement you are supposed to walk on.

I've just written a blog post looking at this in terms of game theory by modelling the process as a strategic game, discussing the 'price of anarchy' and also talking about the evolutionary dynamics: http://goo.gl/HD9qJV

Basically you can show that 'randomly walking on either side' is a Nash equilibrium that is much worse than the Nash equilibrium of being told to walk on a particular side of the pavement.

Very nice morning #ORAHS2014 social visit to Nazaré, Portugal. Sea looks calm today but this is where back in January Hawaiian surfer Garrett McNamara broke the world record for the highest wave ever ridden (100ft).

Taking the opportunity at #ORAHS2014 to gather the team together to collaboratively work on our EU Horizon2020 stage 2 proposal using +Google Drive. Turkish, Italian, French, Dutch, German and British (+Vincent Knight, +Julie Vile and myself) representation around the table! Brussels would be proud!

Just ended chairing one of the Tuesday sessions at  #ORAHS2014  in which it was a pleasure to give a joint talk with John Frankish on our embedded healthcare modelling unit , and managed to end the whole session just about on time despite +Joe Viana's attempts to disrupt ;)

"Previously, I had always been the center of attention. The class erupted in chaos, with 250 students talking to each other all at once. And within two minutes, the class had figured out the solution, whereas I--the expert--had tried [to teach this] for 10 minutes, without success," Mazur recounts. "I started to think about it, and it just made sense. One student is more likely to convince his or her neighbor than the professor, because that student has just recently learned the concept and knows what a beginning learner struggles with, unlike the professor, to whom the problem is entirely clear."

Minerva Prize

Dr. Eric Mazur is the first winner of the Minerva Prize for Advancements in Higher Education in recognition of his pioneering work on Flipped Classrooms with the discovery and development of Peer Instruction twenty years ago while teaching Physics at Harvard. He had already been made a founding member of the institute and will now receive a US$500,000 cash prize as part of the award.

But then, one day, Mazur came across an article by Ibrahim Abou Halloun and David Hestenes, published in 1985 in American Journal of Physics. The article, titled "The initial knowledge state of college physics students," stated--bluntly--that the majority of students exiting introductory physics courses did not truly understand basic Newtonian concepts and, hence, failed to comprehend most of the content of the course. The majority of students who passed had done so based solely on rote memorization.

The sentiment in the article resonated throughout the physics education community. Mazur reflected on his own students, who were carefully selected through Harvard's rigorous admissions process.

"I thought, that's simply not possible," recalls Mazur. "So I decided that I would show that my students--Harvard students--actually do learn the physics, unlike the students reported on in the article. I gave the Force Concept Inventory to my class, and that's when the house of cards collapsed...When the test had been completed, it was clear: My students weren't actually learning but were memorizing by rote and solving problems by rote. I was in shock."

ORAHS conferences have a tradition of a boat trip and #ORAHS2014 Lisbon is no different. Really nice evening (will have to shop in missing +Vincent Knight to the team Cardiff boat photo!)
