Namita Pandey from Cambridge Assessment English introduces Linguaskill a new English language test with Artificial Intelligence capabilities and explains how it's really helping recruiters meet this challenge head on. How do you recruit talent with the English language skills they need to succeed? How can you ensure your existing employees get the training they need to improve their English? This is a challenge for HR professionals and there is a growing demand in the recruitment sector for an effective solution that takes the guesswork out of assessing English language skills for the workplace. The importance of English for business has become more prevalent in the last decade.
American industry is in the midst of another revolution. This one is taking us to a place where decisions of many kinds, from when you should go in for a coronary bypass to where your car should turn left, will no longer be made entirely by us; they will be guided by artificial intelligence. That's good news, because artificial intelligence (AI) holds great promise for improving the health and welfare of much of the planet. But for society to take full advantage of the power of AI, algorithmic outcomes must be fair, and the application of those outcomes must be ethical. So far, efforts to cultivate algorithmic fairness lag far behind the enthusiasm to adopt the technology.
Woodie Flowers SM '68, MEng '71, PhD '73, the Pappalardo Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering, passed away on Oct. 11 at the age of 75. Flowers' passion for design and his infectious kindness have impacted countless engineering students across the world. Flowers was instrumental in shaping MIT's hands-on approach to engineering design education, first developing teaching methods and learning opportunities that culminated in a design competition for class 2.70, now called 2.007 (Design and Manufacturing I). This annual MIT event, which has now been held for nearly five decades, has impacted generations of students and has been emulated at universities around the world. Flowers expanded this concept to high school and elementary school students, working to help found the world-wide FIRST Robotics Competition, which has introduced millions of children to science and engineering.
A fundamental establishment in the standards and practices around artificial intelligence (AI), automation and cognitive systems is something which is probably going to turn out to be progressively important, paying little heed to your field of business, skill or profession. There are so many courses and certifications for individuals who need to jump straight into coding their own artificial neural networks, and naturally, accept a specific degree of technical ability. Others are valuable for the individuals who need to figure out how this innovation can be applied by anybody, paying little mind to prior technical expertise, to tackling real-world issues. Let's look at some of the best AI courses and certifications which can help in improving your knowledge and skills in the field of artificial intelligence. If learning Machine Learning is at the forefront of your thoughts, at that point there is no looking further.
For all the talk about how artificial intelligence could transform what happens in the classroom, AI hasn't yet lived up to the hype. AI involves creating computer systems that can perform tasks that typically require human intelligence. It's already being experimented with to help automate grading, tailor lessons to students' individual needs and assist English language learners. We heard about a few promising ideas at a conference I attended last week on artificial intelligence hosted by Teachers College, Columbia University. Shipeng Li, corporate vice president of iFLYTEK, talked about how the Chinese company is working to increase teachers' efficiency by individualizing homework assignments.
Dr. Ganapathi Pulipaka was a recipient of the Top 50 Technology Leader awards for recognition of his contribution to artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data science; for the past five years on Twitter as a machine learning and data science influencer; as a contributor to thought leadership and of project implementation articles on Medium, Data Driven Investor, LinkedIn, GitHub; as a best-selling author of two books on Amazon - "The Future of Data Science and Parallel Computing: A Road to Technological Singularity," published on June 29, 2018, and "Big Data Appliances for In-Memory Computing: A Real-World Research Guide for Corporations to Tame and Wrangle Their Data," published Dec. 8, 2015 - and other eBooks that have reached all-time high rankings from the world's largest book ratings authority (featured on Forbes), BookAuthority; and also for writing another 400 research papers as part of academic research programs for PostDoc and PhD. He is an American data scientist and AI luminary who has been featured in top-tier magazines and news and industry publications and was a speaker for multiple media distribution networks and some of the top media station affiliates, including ABC, FoxNews, NBC, Yahoo Finance, MarketWatch, The CW, VentureBeat, MirrorReview, CIOReview, SAP, Erie News Now, USA Today, Double T 97.3 Lubbock's Radio station, 100.7 KFM BFM San Diego, KITV, Telemundo Lubbock 46, AZCentral, Insights Success, NewsOk, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, MarketWatch, and Ask.
Posted By C. M. Rubin on Oct 9, 2019 "We added "Artificial Intelligence" to "Robotics & STEM" this year because it is an important and timely topic for young people to learn about." Prior to joining the Girls of Steel Robotics Program at Carnegie Mellon University's (CMU) Field Robotics Center, Theresa Richards was a science teacher in Pittsburgh where she created an award-winning lesson integrating robotics into a Human Anatomy and Physiology course. The problem her organization is trying to solve is the demand for more people in STEM, and in particular, women. A December 2018 report in Pittsburgh shows there are 80,000 STEM jobs currently available. "We believe that building robots builds confidence in STEM," says Richards.
If you've been thinking about building your own deep learning computer for a while but haven't quite got'round to it, here's another reminder. Not only is it cheaper to do so, but the subsequent build can also be faster at training neural networks than renting GPUs on cloud platforms. When you start trying small side projects like, say, building little autonomous drones or crafting a bot to spit out random snippets of poetry, you begin to realise how much compute power is really needed to get interesting results. So you can either fork out money to rent hardware via cloud services like AWS or Google Compute Platform or build your own server. Jeff Chen, an AI engineer and entrepreneur, drew up a handy shopping list for all the different parts needed to craft your own deep learning rig.
The past 10 years wouldn't have been possible without you. Information technology and software services company Softclick Investments is hosting an Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Business course from the 24th of September to 26 October at Batanai Gardens. The course is supposed to provide "practical, comprehensive training that enables participants to immediately and effectively partake in enterprise AI projects." The courses require no technical background and will be open to all "executives and professionals from all functions across all industries." At the end of the course, participants will earn a certificate.
