Academic Influence Inflection Magazine

AcademicInfluence.com brings a human perspective to college ranking, measuring the excellence of schools based on the excellence of the individuals who have taught and studied there. Inflection Weekly turns the focus inward, providing a platform for exploration, both of higher education and our own data. Inflection takes a deeper look at influence, what it means, how it manifests in the real world, and how it can be used to better understand the impact of achievements, individuals, and institutions. From the student journey to the educator’s mission, from the researcher’s quest to the professor’s body of work, Inflection seeks creative ways to deploy our expansive data, to test our sophisticated tools, and to challenge the powerful machine learning technology powering AcademicInfluence.com.
