Cover: Machine Learning

Recent advances in computation are spawning explosive growth in the use of machine learning tools. To better prepare students, scientists and researchers should become familiar with the tools and the current limitations of artificial intelligence, and include machine learning practice in the classroom when appropriate. In the article , Lisa Joss and Erich A. Müller present a classroom exercise for first-year science and engineering students who are tasked with using an artificial neural network to produce a correlation predicting the normal boiling point of organic compounds from an unabridged data set of more than 6000 compounds.

The April Editorial also discusses teaching and machine learning:

~ Mary C. Boyce, Nathan G. Lawler, Yingqi Tu, and Stacey N. Reinke

Commentary: Revised International System of Units

In November 2018, the 26th meeting of the General Conference on Weights and Measures approved a revision to the International System of Units (Système International, SI) to go into effect May 20, 2019. Find out in the commentary by Carmen J. Giunta.
