Deep Learning: Turkey's biggest artificial intelligence community

#artificialintelligence

As the number of people who work on a volunteer basis or try to contribute for good causes increase in Turkey, we look to the future with confidence. Furthermore, if these volunteers comprise of scientists, academicians and youths, supporting such formations mean paving the way of social developments. The Deep Learning Turkey community, which teaches and guides high school students and undergraduates, turning artificial intelligence into a social responsibility project, has reached out to thousands of youths although it was established only in August of last year. The community helps youths who are interested in artificial intelligence and want to have a career in this field as well as providing information sharing on an open platform for scientists. Deep Learning Turkey is the biggest and the most effective artificial intelligence community in Turkey.

Being a high schooler myself and having studied Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence for a year now, I believe that there fails to exist a learning path in this field for High School students. This is my attempt to create one. Over the past few months, I've tried to spend a couple of hours every day understanding this field, be it watching Youtube videos or undertaking projects. I've been guided by older peers who've had far more experience than me, and now feel that I have ample experience to share my insights. All the information that I have compiled in this guide is intended for high schoolers wishing to excel in this up and coming field.


First AI textbook for high school students released - Chinadaily.com.cn

#artificialintelligence

China has recently published its first artificial intelligence (AI) textbook for high school students, following a plan by central government last year to include AI courses in primary and secondary school. Under the joint efforts by the research center for MOOC at East China Normal University and AI startup SenseTime Group, the nine-chapter textbook, named Fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence, was written by eminent scholars from well-known schools nationwide, Xinhua reported on Sunday. It includes the history of AI and how the technology can be applied in areas such as facial recognition, auto driving and public security. "The textbook focuses not only on basics of AI, also on practical use of AI in daily life," said Chen Yukun, a professor at East China Normal University, who is also a contributor to the book. At present, about 40 high schools across the country have joined the first batch of AI high education pilot program, by introducing the textbook in curriculum.


AI at Google: our principles

#artificialintelligence

At its heart, AI is computer programming that learns and adapts. It can't solve every problem, but its potential to improve our lives is profound. At Google, we use AI to make products more useful--from email that's spam-free and easier to compose, to a digital assistant you can speak to naturally, to photos that pop the fun stuff out for you to enjoy. Beyond our products, we're using AI to help people tackle urgent problems. A pair of high school students are building AI-powered sensors to predict the risk of wildfires.

Google Unit Partners Shanghai's Fudan University on AI Development

#artificialintelligence

A subsidiary of Google has entered a two-year partnership with Fudan University, the leading university in China's eastern Shanghai municipality, with a focus on emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence. Google China's Education Cooperation Division support Fudan's curriculum related to emerging science and technology, online news outlet The Paper reported, adding that the pair will jointly build a laboratory as well as an exchange center to boost interaction between students in China and the US. Google's China-based education unit has been working with schools in the country since 2006, covering undergraduate, higher vocational education and secondary schools. The projects supported include joint scientific research, curriculum construction, teacher training and information technology education for middle school students. AI is a key focus of Google's development in China.


Let's Hold Our Horses on AI – The Startup – Medium

As an example, consider Elon Musk's statements backtracking on the practical nature and benefits of using automated workers in his factories to boost Model 3 production. A piece in Bloomberg covers the Silicon Valley darling's explanation by drawing attention to his Twitter post: "Excessive automation at Tesla was a mistake. To be precise, my mistake." That was swept under the rug pretty quickly, right? It feels like a repetition of the trend of these breakthrough advancements in cancer treatments, where every other week it seems like some doctor, researcher, or precocious high school student has designed some new method that could lead to the potential "cure to cancer."

High school students helped an AI learn to read old handwritten texts

#artificialintelligence

In Italy, 120 high school students helped solve a centuries-old problem: how to give researchers access to the Vatican Secret Archives, a massive collection of documents detailing the Vatican's activities as far back as the eighth century. That should look pretty great on their college applications. The shelves of the Vatican Secret Archives are about 85 kilometers (53 miles) long and house 35,000 volumes of catalogues. But the documents that researchers have scanned and uploaded take up less than an inch. That's because the Vatican seems to not have wanted to share the information.
