Subject: pizza and learning for CS students tomorrow


Hi there,

I'm the events coordinator at Knewton, and I wanted to drop a quick line
about some learning and pizza being shared tomorrow. One of our senior
software engineers will be on campus talking about the chewy problems we're
working on and what it's like working in Silicon ALLEY, just kidding we
don't really call it that. Here are some things we will likely discuss, in
question form:


   - What can "big data" do for education?
   - Is New York really the coolest city in the universe?
   - How small is your personal window of opportunity to do something truly
   awesome, when you really think about it?
   - Why is pizza so delicious?

Please feel free to forward the invite to any of your colleagues who have
email addresses that are more difficult to find on the internet!

*Stanford Knerd Talk*
*7:00 - 8:00 pm*
*Tresidder Memorial Union, Cypress North*

*Some more background:* Knewton is an NYC-based startup building the
world's most powerful adaptive learning engine. We're taking massive
amounts of student performance data and using it to make meaningful
learning recommendations. This past year we closed the largest-ever round
of venture funding for an educational technology company and were named a
Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum (an honor previously
bestowed to the likes of Mozilla, Twitter, and Paypal), and last week Fast
Company named us one of the 50 most innovative companies in the world.

Jessie
