    The detective work required to reconstruct the history of past earthquakes is conducted by coastal paleoseismologists. Cascadia’s coastlines act as natural seismographs, recording the footprints of past earthquakes and tsunamis through various geological clues.

    Doing AI in the small is valuable to many people who do not have the means to use and benefit from Big Tech AI. It might also be safer if people do not have to share their data with Big Tech companies for the sake of building new AI models that benefit only a few. Miniaturizing AI can be about rural communities that do not have good broadband internet access or the latest personal devices.

    Game theory, a branch of applied mathematics, has its origins in parlor games, but is widely used today in many disciplines such as economics and computer science. It is the systematic study of any rule-governed situation, where the outcome depends on the actions of multiple people. Examples range from simple games like Tic-Tac-Toe and Rock, Paper, Scissors all the way to mega-companies like Coke and Pepsi competing to sell their products.
