Bucking tradition, family man Jake Whiteside graduates with neuroscience, Chinese combo
Before coming to campus, Whiteside was home-schooled. He moved out at 17 years old to fix up a mobile home, plumbing included, for the woman who became his wife shortly after his 18th birthday. Just weeks shy of commencement, he already has two young children. He'll also have two degrees, and even they aren't a common combination.
It would be easy to think that a trailblazer has to travel alone. In Whiteside's case, however, his success along nontraditional paths has been achieved largely with limitless support from those around him.

IUPUI field-data study finds no evidence of racial bias in predictive policing
INDIANAPOLIS - While predictive policing aims to improve the effectiveness of police patrols, there is concern that these algorithms may lead police to target minority communities and result in discriminatory arrests. An IUPUI School of Science computer scientist conducted the first study to look at real-time field data from Los Angeles, CA and found predictive policing did not result in biased arrests.
Ambition drives computer science students into business
There's more to artificial intelligence -- AI -- than robots taking over the world. Zachary Balda and Brandon Boynton say what they do is machine learning, a subset of AI. Word choice aside though, it kind of sounds like they're helping machines replace the need for a human brain.
