In a big cluster, as many as forty-eight pizza-box-size servers slide into a rack as tall as a person; these racks stand in rows, filling buildings the size of warehouses. The neural networks in such systems can tackle daunting problems, but they

    Oakland high schoolers repaired more than 3,000 Chromebooks this summer

    Forty interns. Eighty-one schools. Six weeks. Thousands of laptops.  This summer, a group of high schoolers spent their vacation visiting every campus in Oakland Unified School District to repair, refurbish, and take inventory of the district’s stockpile of Chromebooks in time for the start of the school year.
