Technology Will Change The Future Or Not


Every day, people round the world arise with new innovative ways to make the future more brighter than previous. So, here are the list of top 5 trending technologies that will surely change the future in every aspects of human life. Artificial Intelligence [AI] that look to the future: Bionic eyes are a backbone of phantasy for many years, however currently real-world analysis is launch to realize with far-sighted storytellers. A raft of technologies is adding up to promote that reinstate sight to folks with completely different verticals of vision impairment. In the year of January 2021, Israeli surgeons embedded the world's first artificial cornea into a bilaterally blind, 78-year-old man.

Teachers are feeling burned out. Artificial intelligence can help.


Educators are at the ends of their ropes. So suggests a fall 2020 survey by RAND Corp., which found that a quarter of all teachers were thinking about leaving education. Remote learning and COVID-19 are partly to blame: More than half (57 percent) of teachers said they worked more hours per week during the pandemic than they did before it, according to RAND, and 80 percent reported feelings of burnout as a result. Even before COVID-19, however, former public-school teachers were struggling, and reported finding better pay, better work/life balance, more resources and a more manageable workload in jobs outside of education. "Part of the problem is that teachers spend a lot of time doing things that ... in their view are not the best and highest use of their time," says former teacher Jake Bryant, now a partner at management consulting firm McKinsey & Co., where he serves the company's education practice. "Nobody becomes a third-grade teacher because they love collecting permission slips and filling out attendance sheets.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to Responsible Machine Learning


Yesterday Olga Tokarczuk (2018 Nobel Prize in Literature) said in an interview that when she thinks about literature, she no longer thinks about books!!! So, how should we effectively tell the most important story in predictive modelling i.e. We (MI2DataLab) are currently working on an exciting and interdisciplinary experiment combining a classic textbook with a comic book, combining a description of methods and software with a description of process, combining a description of a specific use-case about COVID-19 data analysis with universal best practices. These 52 page long teaching materials describe how to build a predictive model, compare the developed models, and use XAI to analyze them, plus a bonus -- how to deploy model with explanations in a similar form to The material is prepared as a starter for predictive modelling. The included code examples can be executed and experimented with on your own (the first version has examples in R, but there will be albo translation for Python).

"Old," Reviewed: M. Night Shyamalan's New Old-School Sci-Fi Movie

The New Yorker

Just as it takes a tough man to make a tender chicken, it takes a smart filmmaker to make a stupid movie, which I mean in the best possible way. Science-fiction films, once a cinematic counterpart to pulp fiction, are today often big-budget, overproduced spectacles that substitute grandiosity for imagination. M. Night Shyamalan's new film, "Old" (which opens in theatres on Friday), is different. His frequent artistic pitfall is complication--the burdening of stories with extravagant yet undeveloped byways in order to endow them with ostensible significance and to stoke exaggerated effects. With "Old," facing the constraints of filming during the pandemic--on a project that he'd nonetheless planned before it--Shyamalan has created a splendid throwback of a science-fiction thriller that develops a simple idea with stark vigor and conveys the straight-faced glee of realizing the straightforward logic of its enticing absurdity.

Top AI & ML Innovations From Allen Institute For Artificial Intelligence


Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen founded The Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence in 2014 to achieve scientific breakthroughs by building AI systems with reasoning, learning, and reading capabilities. Over the years, the private research institute and startup incubator has pushed the frontiers of AI and machine learning. We have listed their major innovations here. Built on PyTorch, AllenNLP is an open source model. The deep learning library supports the management of experiments and the evaluation after development.

Artificial Intelligence: Coming Soon to a Barnyard Near You


In a recent McKinsey Future of Work podcast interview with Microsoft Chief Technology Officer Kevin Scott, the CTO revealed that artificial intelligence (AI) is about to go prime time and will begin showing up in the most unlikely of places – including our nation's farm fields Once a mysterious science being beta-tested by only Fortune 100 companies, AI is rapidly becoming more democratic, inclusive, and utilitarian – to even those residing in under-served communities. It's also becoming a versatile tool that can branch out to myriad market sectors, including one of our oldest – agriculture. Scott recently published a book entitled Reprogramming the American Dream: From Rural America to Silicon Valley – Making AI Serve Us All. The findings come from his personal experiences with AI being implemented to service populations in rural towns and working-class communities, rather than just hi-tech cities or corner offices. The Wall Street Journal recently reported on Microsoft's FarmBeats program – a platform that leverages AI to improve farming outcomes.

Round Rock student wins national award from artificial intelligence group


Walsh Middle School seventh grader Aariv Modi has always had a fascination for technology, especially his parent's Alexa device. "I loved the idea of just speaking to a device that it could allow you to play music, listen to the news, and it seemed futuristic to me," Aariv said. In April, Aariv was recognized as the Voice/AI Pioneer of the Year by Project Voice for his contributions to the conversational artificial intelligence industry. During the COVID-19 lockdown, he taught hundreds of kids how to make Alexa do things it isn't programmed to do through webinars, camps and posts on his blog that is available online. "In this generation, as kids are growing up, they are being exposed to technology and learning things in ways that we never thought was possible," said Bradley Metrock, CEO of Score Publishing, which organizes the Project Voice conference.

California teenager invents AI-powered tool for early wildfire detection


The world is indeed lucky when our most brilliant minds choose to work for the common good, rather than chasing money or becoming master criminals. So Inhabitat wants to thank young Ryan Honary for his work on an early detection system for wildfires. Sickened by the losses people sustained in the 2018 Camp Fire, California's deadliest wildfire, Honary turned his attention to how to mitigate future disasters. In 2019, Honary won the $10,000 grand prize in the Ignite Innovation Student Challenge for his Early Wildfire Detection Network submission, which provides app technology to firefighters. He was only in fifth grade at the time.
