"Many people think that it is important now a days to work harder, faster, and more efficient to solve problems,but that's exactly what machines can do. Every efficient procedure will be replaced by algorithms eventually. Henning Beck https://twitter.com/johnywrites/status/1305261194219933697?s=20
I really think the relevancy of memorization based educational practices need more scientific investigation. How much can and should we remember in a dynamic and information-abundant-world should be investigated. How much fundamentally transient information should we remember. ?

Neuro-scientists know a lot about how our brains learn new things, but not much about how they choose what to focus on while they learn. According to this study, a part of the brain called the paraventricular thalamus, or PVT, serves as a kind of gatekeeper, making sure that the brain identifies and tracks the … Continue reading Tweet: Stanford study on how the brain decides what to learn by Xiaoke Chen and Greg Nachtrab
