What Does It Mean to Prepare Students for a Future With Artificial Intelligence? (EdSurge News)

#artificialintelligence

The plan was the beginning of a national effort to prepare Americans for a future with AI--a future some computer scientist believe our nation is ill-equipped to handle. Using research and concepts from several AI experts including Mark Stehlik of Carnegie Mellon and Rand Hindi of Snips, EdSurge put together the following three-step list educators can use to start implementing AI education in schools. Dr. Rand Hindi, CEO of Snips (a machine learning device company), is part of a research group working with the French government to prepare their country for AI. For Stehlik, the onus is on technology companies and higher education institutions to prepare K-12 teachers for AI instruction by providing them with curriculums, capacity and continuing education opportunities.


Lyft partners with Google's Waymo to launch self-driving cars and challenge Uber

The Independent

US ride services company Lyft and Google parent Alphabet's self-driving car unit Waymo have launched a self-driving vehicle partnership, bringing together two rivals to dominant ride-sharing service Uber. On Monday, a company that claims to make the world's first folding bike helmet announced that the tennis pro was one of more than 400 individuals who had helped it raise nearly £700,000 on crowdfunding platform Seedrs. The euro hit a six-month high against the dollar on Monday and US stock futures briefly touched a record high after Emmanuel Macron won the French presidential election, easily beating anti-EU rival Marine le Pen. The pound surged against the dollar on Tuesday to its highest level since last December after Prime Minister Theresa May said she wanted a general election on 8 June.


Artificial intelligence is coming for law firms

French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron's campaign said Friday it has been hacked -- 9GB of authentic and fake emails were posted Friday to Pastebin, a document-sharing site, from a user named EMLEAKS, according to Reuters. Why it matters: It's less than two days before the French presidential election comes to a close, and the way that works in France includes a ban on campaigning over the weekend. This sounds similar to the hacked DNC emails that have been linked to Hillary Clinton's tanked campaign. However, Macron's campaign said the emails leaked Friday aren't concerning because they show "normal" presidential campaign activity.

Datasets of the Week, April 2017: Fraud Detection, Exoplanets, Indian Premier League, & the French Election

#artificialintelligence

In this month's set of hand-picked datasets of the week, you can familiarize yourself with techniques for fraud detection using a simulated mobile transaction dataset, learn how researchers use data in the deep space hunt for exoplanets, and more. What I have learned is that with the help of simulation to generate synthetic datasets we can study a specific fraud phenomenon and more important measure the impact of different controls that we can implement before implementing them. So I decided to download the data for all the seasons of IPL (total 9), convert to csv format and started looking at the key insights. Comparison of interest from Google Trends and Twitter mentions by candidate in the kernel "First Round Prediction."

France shows off humanoid underwater exploration robot

#artificialintelligence

French officials have unveiled a humanoid diving robot that they hope will give a big artificial hand to the practice of underwater archaeology. It is intended to help researchers explore underwater archaeological sites that are too deep to be explored by human divers. According to Stanford, the concept for Ocean One was born from the need to study coral reefs deep in the Red Sea, far below the comfortable range of human divers. No existing robotic submarine can dive with the skill and care of a human diver, so OceanOne was conceived and built from the ground up as "a successful marriage of robotics, artificial intelligence and haptic feedback systems."
