Do a three-year computer science degree in the UK. You will only see computer science.
I've been using laptops in classes since the early 1990s, back when I was taking coursework for my PhD. It doesn't bother me to lecture to a classroom of students using them.
We've been studying the inferior colliculus, and some of the processing there appears unexpectedly complex, suggesting that speech recognition software may not be using the full set of cues that the auditory system has available to it.
At least the US economy has some cool nerds to hire. The UK requires students to specialise at 14-16, and the result is whole classes of computing students who have not a clue about how their work will be applied, particularly in science and engineering.
If the manager's first job is to facilitate the work of her programmers, then, yes, she should stay if it makes a contribution.
I tried to solve this problem using approximation techniques and found it failed to converge and instead showed chaotic dynamics. Genetic algorithm techniques did converge, but not to a global solution. The paper was published about 15 years ago in a collection of social systems modelling studies.
Most young professionals work on a masters part-time. A good employer will pay the fees.
They are. Or at least they were when I was involved in FAA security. Consider the agenda of the source of the report.
These technologies were developed about 30 years for the US Government (Multics). See Karger and Schell. Pity that patent trolls can't be sued for misusing the patent system.
