7:00 PM | Why computer scientists and linguists don’t always see eye-to-eye
“You’ve just explained my entire life to me.” This was the last thing I was expecting to hear from Lori, my graduate advisor, in the midst of a discussion of my career plans. I gave a stiff smile and shifted uncomfortably in my chair. “What you just said,” she continued, “that’s why I’m here, not […]

7:00 PM | “You don’t retract a paper, you retract the results within:” Why one scientist still displays one of his mistakes
And now, one from the archives. In 1989, then MIT grad student Lance Fortnow (he’s now chair of the computer science department at Georgia Tech) wrote a mathematical proof and published it as conference proceedings. He later went to publish the proof in a journal. But he then discovered “unexpected technical challenges” and published a retraction […]The post “You don’t retract a paper, you retract the results within:” Why one scientist still […]
