Predictioneer: How to predict the future with game-theory
Hailed as 'the new Nostradamus', Bruce Bueno de Mesquita has been shaking the world of political science to its foundations with his predictions of world events. His systems based on game theory have an astonishing 90%+ ratio of accuracy and are frequently used to shape US foreign-policy decisions on issues such as the terrorist threat to America to the peace process in Northern Ireland. Considered by many to be the most important foreign-policy analyst there is, it is no surprise that he is reg
1906-12-10: de Forest, Robert W., to Margaret Olivia Slocum Sage
This image is a typewritten memorandum from Robert W. de Forest to Margaret Olivia Slocum Sage. The writer gives the outlines of what was to become the Russell Sage Foundation.,Russell Sage has died in July 1906, leaving Olivia Sage a $75 million dollar fortune. Five months later, her attorney and advisor Robert W. de Forest lays out his suggestions for a general-purpose benevolent trust, a "foundation" incorporated under federal and state laws and administered by trustees serving for life. This
1909-11-28: A Woman Inventor Who Plans - and Expects - To Fly
This image is a newspaper clipping about E. Lilian Todd and the airplane she designed and that Mrs. Sage financed.,E. Lilian Todd was an unusual woman for her day, or ours. From a modest background and largely self-educated, she became a stenographer and then worked for a firm of patent attorneys in Washington, D.C. But in her spare time, she designed and built model planes and by 1906 she had developed a model biplane and was seeking a sponsor to enable it to be built and test-flown. Olivia Sag

1.221J Transportation Systems (MIT)
Approaching transportation as a complex, large-scale, integrated, open system (CLIOS), this course strives to be an interdisciplinary systems subject in the "open" sense. It introduces qualitative modeling ideas and various techniques and philosophies of modeling complex transportation enterprises. It also introduces conceptual frameworks for qualitative analysis, such as frameworks for regional strategic planning, institutional change analysis, and new technology development and deployment. And
1.203J Logistical and Transportation Planning Methods (MIT)
The class will cover quantitative techniques of Operations Research with emphasis on applications in transportation systems analysis (urban, air, ocean, highway, pick-up and delivery systems) and in the planning and design of logistically oriented urban service systems (e.g., fire and police departments, emergency medical services, emergency repair services). It presents a unified study of functions of random variables, geometrical probability, multi-server queueing theory, spatial location theo

ESD.33 Systems Engineering (MIT)
Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realization of successful systems. It focuses on defining customer needs and required functionality early in the development cycle, documenting requirements, then proceeding with design synthesis and system validation while considering the complete problem including operations, performance, test, manufacturing, cost, and schedule. This subject emphasizes the links of systems engineering to fundamentals of decision theor

BCT has come to believe that there is no waste land, it is only wasted land, in other words, man not utilizing the appropriate technologies for bringing the land into production. In order to demonstrate this point, BCT has taken a 50 acre wast
Absolute Value Equations
This video explains how solving for a variable in absolute value equations follows different rules than when we solve multi-step equations. When solving absolute value equations, most of the time we get more than one possible solution. Using absolute value equations, we are able to solve more complex concepts such as absolute values with inequalities, and graphs of absolute value inequalities with two variables. (2:21)
