You ready for a revolution in technology /g/?
>the now-22-year-old is being held up as a the “new Einstein”, a young woman whose brain works in ways few have ever worked and whose future is limitless.
is the point that if this were a guy no one would give two shits? cause that's what im getting from this. how many guys do what she's done? surely it's in the dozens. another cunt on a pedestal. fuck off, bitch
Man, most of these child prodigies don't live to the expectations and get depressed when they discover they are not **that** good. Of course there are prodigies that really become geniuses, like Terence Tao.
She's probably Jewish
>book smart prodigy gets perfect grades
While impressive, nobody will care until she actually does something with that brain. The whole article is basically "look out for this up and coming scientist-engineer-next Einstein".
Setting someone up for such high expectations is a surefire way to turn her in a fuckup. Can't imagine being her in my 35-40's and not having accomplished anything revolutionary. (which will most likely be the case)
Every other week, it's some modestly smart woman or minority who's IQ is higher than Einstein's and who is going to literally change everything forever.
And then they don't do anything. I mean, they're successful, because they're still smart, but none of these kids have changed the world.
Then you have people like George Hotz who is so good at what he does he has billionaires and their companies shitting their pants and BEGGING him to join their companies.
Fuck the hype. Skill shows itself eventually.
Ok, it says she's built a plane and that she's clever. But it doesn't say what her degree is. It can be comp science for all we know (useless)
IMO GeoHot has a better chance to being remembered forerver than whats her name in the article.
Like the saying goes B students go work for the government, A students work for the C students
It takes a certain something to solve problems, not make more.
she sounds like some big loser who instead of doing regular girl stuff like being on sports teams and socializes makes some baby engine in her garage. this is what wrong with all this genius talk - its not real. You choose to become a loser, making some engine instead of being a normal human
shes far prettier than any girl that will ever be attracted to a piece of shit like you.
and no, having money doesn't make them attracted to you, they're just using you for money.
I love these media stories. Anyone remember Elisabeth Holmes? Theranos?..
Do you know what happened witht that megahyped startup that was supposed to sell some new bloodtesting technique? It flopped, everyone's pulling out.
In just one year or so.
The moral of the story is the media just fucking loves to come up with these stories about upcoming "prodigies".
That chick who started Theranos was hyped as some kind of a CEO prodigy, that will show us the path to the future in medicine.
Every parent must have been reading that story and saying to their offspring: "She's only 29 years old and look what she's already achieved. She's helping humanity and making money. What have you done, anon?"
It turned out it was just a hoax, that was also heavily hyped by the the media.
These stories about prodigies, startup companies that will save humanity etc etc are just media concoctions, served as clickbait for ads.
When will you guys learn. Those who are truly gifted or invent stuff don't sell themselves for a media story so cheaply. They don't really need the hype.
The thing is science has changed a lot since the early 1910s. Today it's basically impossible for one single person to come up with a new paradigm-changing theory in physics based on their own personal reflections.
Most of today's science is done in labs by bigger teams. In physics, moreso today you need more and more expensive equipment to be able to perform experiments that nobody before was able to perform (think the Large Hadron Collider).
The time of Einsteins is truly gone. I mean, you could come up with a new "theory" with bold claims, but guess what, journals are full of those today. Just take a look at arxiv.org to see how many wild theories are published, some of them with far implications, about the fundamental structure of the universe or of matter.
They did a century ago. It's news because its girl, who's young (good for her, no really).
I wonder how much money she used to do that all. There plenty of geniuses out there that can do much more but dong have funding
She seems cool enough, not sure how building an airplane engine is considered genius though since my grandpa who never went to high school was capable of such a thing. She's wasting her time at school if she's getting a 5.0 average, she could very easily teach herself anything she wanted to know without paying the ridiculous tuition rates of both those schools.
I feel like they're screwing her over with this article. It's going to make her feel obligated to do something great, and if she can't handle the pressure it will crush her. That or she will become a cynic who stops caring. I wish her the best of luck in any case.
If it needs shills, it won't pay the bills.
We recently saw the absolute hypocrisy of this behavior with the lord of time, Clockmed. Liberal media hyped him up as a genius but the kid is barely above eating glue. Not to mention his father was using this hype to jew the school and nation for millions.
