I attended a data science conference in Boston from Thursday to Saturday last week.
1.1 The conference website claims: there is no official dress code, but shirts and shoes are required at all times…
1.2 My question is, how about pants?
2. One speaker presented one service provided by one wearable device detecting falls of seniors: whenever the senior falls, a message was automatically tweeted on the senior’s Twitter account… Obviously someone thinks it will help…
3. One speaker tried to deliver his message using a metaphor of parallel universe. A few minutes later something is wrong with the room’s audio system and it kept broadcasting the speech of next door’s speaker, which was totally irrelevant and interrupting our speaker. We kept laughing and our speaker was like, “Maybe it’s from our parallel universe…”
Received my first ever patent royalty payment by in life. Not a lot of money, but definitely something special enough to be marked~
