A special note about Knewton, the company that hosted our "Amps" meetup-event on June 10 (http://www.DBMonth.com/database/crank-up-the-amps)
For those of you who aren’t familiar with this company that was recently featured in TIME magazine, Knewton is an "adaptive learning provider that uses data to continuously personalize the delivery of online learning content for individual students. This is done through determining student proficiencies at extremely detailed levels, providing activity recommendations, and generating analytics. Knewton is different from other "adaptive" companies because it is building a generalized technology platform that anyone can build with. The platform employ true psychometrics and data science to understand student proficiencies and content efficacy. In other words, Knewton makes it possible for anyone else to build powerful, adaptive learning applications that will take advantage of data from all students on the platform, not only within a customized app or even an entire company."
